BLAIS- DIAMOND, Margaret (née JOHNSON)
Joyfully entered the world on October 10, 1919 and quietly left on April 12, 2008. She spent 88 years living, loving and appreciating the world around her. Born to Hugh and Myrtle JOHNSON, sister to Vera, Jean and Nonie, she spent her early years as a "tomboy" playing tennis, climbing trees, skipping school and doing a variety of water activities. Her lifelong love of swimming and the serenity of water began with her dodging ships on the Detroit River in a sailboat or swimming. Margaret was in the Air Force during World War 2 and began her medical career there working with the Doctors and then in Medical Records. In 1949 while living in Toronto she met and married Aime BLAIS, together they raised six children and lived in a variety of farms in Southern Ontario and eventually settling in Strathroy. Times were tough on the farms but with lots of love, and determination they weathered the storms and Margaret even completed a Hospital Administration program at University of Saskatchewan. She was in Public Relations, and as Assistant Executive Director for over 30 years at the Strathroy Hospital loving it, and totally believed in positive leadership and the balance of work and family life. To say Margaret was proud of her six children was an understatement. Her unconditional love and unwavering support was there for all of us throughout our lives. She spent her retirement living on Lake Huron with her second husband Bert DIAMOND and swimming in many oceans and lakes. Bert died in 1987. For the last 15 years she lived with her son Paul in Toronto and together they roamed the world. Margaret loved life, she was kind, funny, curious and keen to meet new people and enjoy new experiences. She always said "Yes, I'll go" We will miss her dearly and will hold her strong values of family and respect forever. We are her proud children. David (Joanie and Thomas), Don (Ruth, Lisa, Chris, Angela and Hannah), Paul (Chris), Michele (Cliff, Ian and Paul) Doug (Michael), Nicole (Holly,) and her special daughter Tena GRAY/GREY. Visitation will be held on Monday, April 21st from 2-3 p.m. where the Funeral Service will be held at 3 p.m. in Denning Bros. Funeral Home, Strathroy. Tea to follow. Celebrate her life by doing something you love or donating to a charity. A tree will be planted as a living memorial to Margaret.

DIAS, Solange Marie
Doctor, nurse, paramedic, mother. Born March 7, 1970, in Chagny, France. Died October 2, 2007, in Toronto of breast cancer, aged By Peter KATIS, Page L6
I was fortunate enough to have met Solange 17 years ago, when we were both in university. I remember the first time I saw her, in late autumn. The sun was setting behind me and all of its rays seemed to focus on this beautiful face before me… the most beautiful face I had ever seen. Her name in French means "Sun Angel."
From the moment of her diagnosis of cancer in February, 2006, Solange had only one fear - saying goodbye to the "greatest achievement" of her life: our daughter Catherine.
Solange would have thrown everything away for the opportunity to raise Catherine. To truly appreciate the significance of this, you have to understand what Solange had accomplished.
She was a doctor. Before this she had been a nurse, and before that a paramedic. Inexplicably, she knew she would die young, and she lived her life compressing time into milestones with great bursts of activity. Yet she took the time to smell the roses. She loved flowers.
Her parents, Armando and Maria, had emigrated from Portugal to France - where Solange was born - and then to Canada when she was four years old. Although she had lived in Toronto most of her life, she always carried herself with a quiet and unassuming French elegance.
She had a soft spot for the vulnerable and always rooted for the underdog. She was modest, yet never compromised her integrity.
Solange was that rare kind of beautiful woman who didn't know just how beautiful she was. She made those around her feel special, and inspired devotion because she was devoted to the end. When she graduated from medical school, she decided to practise family medicine with a focus on palliative care because she wanted to comfort the dying.
Her greatest love was reserved for her child. Catherine Alexandra Dias KATIS came our way on August 11, 2005. Solange was ecstatic, and loved her with all of her capacity to love. She had plans to take her to plays, to the zoo, to the library - to have her experience all of the beautiful things in this world.
Then, six months later, the diagnosis came. Following the devastating news, Solange set up Catherine's future bedroom and playroom, and wrote a letter for her little girl to be read when she was old enough to understand.
And on October 2, I held your left hand, Solange, the same hand I had held two years before when you pushed our little Catherine out of your womb, and I saw you take your last breath. The last thing that stopped was your heart, your heart that had the capacity to embrace the world and everybody in it - but most desired just to embrace Catherine.
Peter KATIS is Solange's husband.
