CUNNING--In memory of a loving Mom and grandmother, Joyce CUNNING, who passed away March 1, 1976.
If I had all the world to give,
I'd give it, yes, and more
To hear her voice, see her smile
And greet her at the door.
But all I can do, dear Mother
Is go and tend your grave,
And leave behind tokens of love
To the best mother God made.
I like to think when live is done,
Wherever heaven may be,
She'll be standing at the door
Up there to welcome me.
You are sadly missed and always remembered. Love, Tom and Jackie and
grandchildren Melissa, Michelle and Cory.

CUNNING--In memory of a loving Dad and grandpa, David Cunning, who passed
away March 13, 2007.
God looked around His garden
And He found an empty place.
He then looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering.
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, "Peace be thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You are sadly missed and always remembered. Love, Tom, Jackie and grandchildren Melissa, Michelle and Cory.

RENNIE, Eleanora " Norah" Stuart (née SIMPSON)
Matriarch, gentle role model, quiet saint. Born around June 3, 1917, in Edinburgh. Died August 14, 2007, in Toronto of cancer, aged 90.
By Adam RENNIE, Page L6
In Edinburgh during the First World War, Marion Scott CUNNINGHAM gave birth to her 11th child. Unlike three brothers before her, the child survived - ach, she must be a strong one.
She was born Eleanora Stuart SIMPSON. By age 6, she and her family moved to Bolton, Ontario
Norah, as she was known, grew up and lived most of her life in Toronto's west end. Her father was a tailor and a strong role model. His views on parenting were clear: "Never hit your kids on the head," he told her, and she never did.
She remembered all the rites of passage: her first kiss ("which was after my first steak on a bun, and even better than the steak") and her first cigarette ("I discovered it was possible to be sneaky, daring, nauseated and have a death wish at the same time."). She married in her early 20s and had four boys - Jim, Rob, Ross, and Dave.
In 1954, hurricane Hazel swept through Toronto. The market gardens where Norah's husband, Andy, worked were flooded, so he was out of a job. She said he was never the same afterward. He and Norah eventually separated because of his increasingly abusive behaviour.
Norah's unplanned independence didn't daunt her; she maintained her calm demeanour. For a long time, she worked as a waitress at Simpsons. When she had too many tables to look after, Norah had a foolproof tactic. As soon as her customers started to look impatient, she would stop by and ask if they had been served yet. "You haven't?" she would say in shock. "Well, your waitress must not be paying attention. I'll just take care of you." They always tipped her a little extra for being so considerate.
Cunning aside, Norah's selflessness knew no bounds. For more than a decade she worked as a nurse's aide at a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients. Her dedication to the community seemed to grow with age - when she wasn't helping at a charity thrift shop, she was volunteering with her church group. When she wasn't knitting socks or a blanket for a new grandchild (hers or a stranger's), she was helping other people in her building with their grocery shopping.
Lying in her hospital bed with terminal cancer, Norah remained her indomitable self. When the doctor delivered the news that she didn't have much longer to live, she took his hand and said, "This must be very hard for you."
Norah compared her life with those of great women and thought it paled in comparison. She saw herself as a tailor's daughter who never had a proper education or career - not as the daring and independent role model that she was.
Adam RENNIE is Norah's grand_son.

CUNNINGHAM, Caroline
(April 4, 1975-April 8, 2007)
Not a minute, hour or day goes by that we, the family, Friends and colleagues of Caroline, do not think of her or remember her. One of her many great Friends, Kirsty Robertson, wrote the following: 'I remember Caroline best leaning on a friend, any friend would do, her arm in the 'Caroline hug,' hand hooked behind the neck and around a shoulder. She always had an excellent grip in her hugs - they made you feel like you were the most important person on earth. But this was par for the course, for Caroline excelled at taking a mundane moment and making it special, her spirit was irrepressible and extraordinary, and she was the queen of the brilliantly hilarious non-sequitor. 'Spartacus gives me tingles,' she once announced, apropos of nothing. We had a wall in our apartment in Lennoxville covered in such sayings - a compendium of the workings of Caroline's beautiful mind, cut shockingly and unexpectedly short on April 8th 2007 when she passed away peacefully in her sleep after an Easter weekend spent with her family, a time of happiness made complete with Caroline and her younger sister Val driving back to Toronto belting out show tunes, (no doubt punctuated with Caroline's pointed finger in the air keeping the beat, and her favourite expression of the moment, 'superstah!'). Bishop's colour might have been purple, but Caroline painted that town red. There were very few clubs she didn't join, not a lot that she didn't do - from playing softball and numerous other intramurals, to singing in the choir, to being a member of CJMQ, Entertainment Editor of The Campus, an editor of the Bishop's Directory, an actor in Theatre Activ, a member the Model United Nations, a sometimes-active participant in the 'I Will Never Eat Another Morsel of Poutine' club, and one of the Bakery Girls (the appellation given to a group of CJMQers living above what was then Green's Bakery, a spot that became a location so central that after a time bakery came to be an adjective and a compliment - Oh yes, I know her, she's so bakery). Although she never finished her degree, Caroline landed firmly on her feet after leaving Bishop's in 1999, traveling regularly and visiting Australia, Cuba, The United States, Europe and Africa (collecting Friends along the way), working on Bay Street, and participating annually in the Toronto Film Festival where her photographic memory for film Credits and obscure film Trivia served her well. It took me a long time to find words to describe the radiance of Caroline's personality and to try to convey the devastating impact of her loss. It always seemed that Caroline exceeded any capacity of language to describe her, that the words simply didn't exist. But perhaps they were there all along, where it began. If a lounge singer ever got it right it was Neil Diamond. At her memorial ser vice, hundreds of people hummed the opening bars of 'Sweet Caroline,' voices cracking in the verse, breaking into song in the famous chorus - Ba Ba Ba -- the words carrying out of the front door of the funeral home and up above the streets to the sky. The world is a little darker without her, for she was bright as yellow, our C.C., our Caroleaner, Petal, Carolinus, Sweet Caroline.'

He is survived by Brothers-in-law, Peter SWORD, Burlington, Washington, and John CUNNINGHAM, Sarnia, Ontario, and many nieces and nephews and their families across Canada and the United States. Jim had a special close relationship with his nephew Doug CUNNINGHAM of Sarnia who provided comfort, companionship and aid to Jim in the last few months before his death. Jim traveled abroad extensively until his handicap required him to use a motorized wheel chair and scooter, He was a prominent figure in the Annex area around his home on Tranby Avenue, sporting his favourite Fisherman's cap, driving his scooter adorned with a large Canadian flag on shopping forays. His backyard annual Canada Day celebrations became the social event of the year for Tranby Avenue residents. Jim's wishes were that no funeral service or memorial be held. Jim's ashes will be placed with his parents at the Harris Street Cemetery, Ingersoll, Ontario. Jim's true love was Sigma Chi Fraternity, He organized the restoration of the Varah Library in the Chapter House in London and served as House Corp, President, He was an active Director, Secretary and Chair of the Scholarship Committee of Sigma Chi Canadian Foundation. In 2006 he was awarded the Order of Constantine, the highest honour attainable for service to Sigma Chi. Jim's courage and indomitable spirit were an inspiration to his countless Sigma Chi brothers who will remember him as one possessed of the qualities of good character and morals, responsibility, a high sense of honour and a spirit of congeniality. We will miss you Brother Christopher James GRIMES, All honour to his name.
