KAY—In loving memory of Kenneth.
A million times we needed you,
A million times we cried,
If love alone would have save you,
You would have never died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still,
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one can ever fill.
A light from our household is gone,
A voice from our love is stilled,
A place in our vacant home,
Which never can be filled.
Some may think you are forgotten
Though on earth you are no more,
But in our memory you are with us,
As you always were before.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
A part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
Your precious memories are for keepsakes,
With which we never part,
God has you safely in his keeping,
But we have you forever in our hearts.
Lovingly remembered by Mom and Dad.

McAVITY, Adine Denise " Dids" (née OLAND)
Of Vancouver, British Columbia passed away peacefully on Tuesday evening January 22, 2008 surrounded by and in the company of her immediate and loving family. Born in 1920, she was the only child of Captain John Eric Woodhouse OLAND of Halifax, Nova Scotia and Denise Victoria OLAND (née HARRIS) of Victoria, British Columbia. Mum grew up in many places including Victoria and Halifax, attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Vancouver, Dalhousie University in Halifax and married John M. McAVITY of Saint John, New Brunswick on December 29, 1941, several weeks before Dad went overseas. While Dad was overseas in Italy and the low countries, Malcolm was born in 1942 in Montreal. Reunited in December 1945, Mum and Dad settled in Rothesay, New Brunswick and welcomed to their family, Eric, born 1946, Frances, born 1948 and Catherine, born 1952. Relocating to Vancouver in 1952 from Rothesay and Kitchener/Waterloo, Mum and Dad remained in their adopted west coast home for the next 55 years building life long Friendships and engaging in their community as active and caring volunteers. Their passion as volunteers was directed heavily towards the Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society to which Mum remained devoted for many years. Predeceased by her eldest son Malcolm in July 2001 and by her loving husband of 65 years in July 2006, Mum remained a strong and faithful icon of family for all her children: Malcolm (Patricia GIBSON) of North Saanich, British Columbia, Eric (Judith MAXWELL) of Canmore, Alberta, Frances of Vancouver, Catherine (John KAYE) of North Saanich and her cherished granddaughter Martha, of Canmore, Alberta. Mum was lovingly supported in her last several years of life by her many faithful Friends as well as her caregivers: Rudi, Fatima, Helen, Tericita and Maria. Mum remained a woman of strong faith, humour and love and through the years was a wonderful source of inspiration, strength and comfort. Her love of flowers and music resulted in wonderful contributions of time and devotion to her church as a faithful and long serving member of the altar guild and the choir. A funeral mass will be held to celebrate the life of our mother on January 30, 2008 at Church of Saint_John the Apostle, 5457 Trafalgar Street, Vancouver, British Columbia at 2: 00 p.m. with Very Rev. Mark Hagemoen officiating. Interment will follow at the Veteran's Cemetery, Esquimalt, British Columbia (with Dad and near her father Eric) at a future date.

604-736-26 McDOUGALL, Barry Douglas.
(February 25, 1933-January 22, 2008)
Barry loved life and the people of his life. He was a devoted father to three children, a doting grandfather to five, a loving partner, and a dedicated friend. All who knew him are left stronger, richer and better for his inspiration and influence. Born in rural Manitoba, the only son of Ken and Isabel McDOUGALL, Barry grew up in the small towns of Mentmore and Neepawa, where his father operated the grain elevator and his mother ran the general store. The family moved to Winnipeg for Barry's high school years, and Barry subsequently attended and graduated from the Universities of Manitoba (Commerce) and Minnesota (MBA) where he was also a brother in the Phil Delta Theta fraternity. Barry's children Cynthia, Liz, and Scott (from his twenty-seven year marriage to Beverley CHAFE) grew independent and courageous through his strong and consistent support. He encouraged them to know and be active in the world, and to find and create happiness. He gave them opportunities he never had. He supported and joined in their adventures from Turkey to Tortola, Indonesia to Oregon, Ketch Harbour to Courtenay. He slept in their basements and boats and adapted without pause to new cultures and cuisines. He visited his children and their families often, giving reassurance, welcome guidance, and unqualified love. To his grandchildren, Barry was an endless source of noisy fun and loving indulgence. From games like 'posquitoes' and 'Dumb and Dumber', to lifechanging experiences like Outward Bound, his five grandchildren benefited profoundly and unforgettably from his place in their lives. His last ten years were spent in the loving company of Penny Green, of Winnipeg. Although their time together was too short, it was full of fun, adventure, travel and happiness. He loved Penny deeply, and his love extended to her children, family, and Friends who welcomed him into their lives. In December 2007, Barry proposed to Penny, and they looked forward to being married. Barry's warm and genuine interest in people drew a wide array of Friends and relationships. He collected, cared and clipped news stories for Friends around the world. In recent days, Friends have remembered him as 'a true gentleman', 'second father', 'mentor', 'loyal', 'generous', and 'thoughtful'. Barry was dedicated in his career as a partner in the consulting practice at Deloitte (and precursor firms). Many of his partners became close Friends, and his work was a source of immense satisfaction. He traveled the world, worked creatively and diligently for clients and Friends, and enjoyed it all. His career was long and successful, and his ultimate retirement from the firm was more of a guideline than a rule. Diagnosed with prostate cancer more than a decade ago, Barry fought and survived for many years but eventually, peacefully and with dignity, succumbed. With that in mind, donations may be made to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre Foundation or a charity of your choice. Barry was a great lover of jazz, and served on the Board of the Ottawa Jazz Festival. In that spirit, a celebration of his life will be held at Café Paradiso, 199 Bank Street, on Monday January 28, 2008 from 6: 30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Spoken tributes, anecdotes, roasts and toasts will be welcome between 7: 30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Written tributes and photographs are also invited at smcdougall@terrachoice.com. Calls welcome at 613.324.4798. Wassail, wassail

PINDER, Margaret Shirley (formerly HALL, née RATHWELL)
Margaret passed away December 28, 2007, in her home in Saskatoon, surrounded by her adoring family. She was ill with cancer for only a short time. Her incredible passion for life was exemplified by her commitment to her family and to her many Friends. She believed that through hard work and a positive outlook anything can be achieved, a philosophy she rigorously instilled in her children and encouraged in her grandchildren. Margaret was born to Muriel (née TEARE) and Herbert RATHWELL on July 7, 1923, and grew up in Moose Jaw. She was very proud of her farming heritage and the lessons she learned on the farm during the depression years instilled a commitment to hard work. She mixed this work ethic with her own brand of fun and the results were infectious. At age 17 she left home and went into training at The Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary, anxious to become a nurse and join the fighting overseas. As befitted her style, she was impatient to be on the front line where the action was. Her adventuresome military career took her to such far off places as Dundurn, Regina, Prince Albert and finally ended in Maple Creek where she met and married Doctor Raymond Leslie HALL (from Wadena,) and with him they established a private practice in Elrose, Saskatchewan. Both Jeffrey and Leslie were born there. Her next stop was to Toronto and during Ray's internship their third child, Janet, was born. In 1956, the family returned to Saskatoon, where Ray and Margaret set up an ophthalmologic practice. Ray died suddenly, at the age of 36, leaving Margaret with the three small children. While recovering from this tragic turn in life, she met Ross PINDER, who had recently suffered his own overwhelming tragedy, with the loss of his wife and children in an automobile accident. Their marriage brought them both out of darkness; the light was shone by three more children, Terri, Douglas, and Paul. The family became one. Marg and Ross's 46 year marriage was, from the beginning, charmed, and, for her six children, twelve grandchildren (and one great-grandchild) it will be an enduring model of an unsurpassed love affair. Marg's unwavering commitment to Ross and her support of his many philanthropic and business endeavors and to his work at Pinder's Drug Stores helped them develop a very successful partnership in life. Marg and Ross shared many fun activities together, whether it was hunting, fishing, golfing, watching football or hosting great parties and each event was never without Margaret's trademark glamour and style. No matter where they were, whether it was in Saskatoon, Sun Lakes, or Waskesui, Marg opened her home and her heart to lots of Friends and family. After Ross died in 2004, Margaret continued to foster her lifelong Friendships while teaming up with a group of very special ladies she often referred to as 'my new young Friends' who helped continue her active and dynamic life. After a wonderful 84 years, Margaret passed away surrounded by those who loved her. Knowing that she would once again be reunited with Ross, she went with the same style and grace and determination that she exhibited all her life. It doesn't get any better than that! Margaret is predeceased by both her husbands and her daughter-in-law, Jan PINDER. She is survived by her sons Jeff, Doug (Kelly), Paul and her daughters Leslie, Janet (Joe KAYORIE) and Terri (Larry CLOSE.) She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Nicolle (Sheldon FELIX) and great-grand_son, Alexander; Natalie (Drew COX) and Robin PINDER; Sarah, Megan and Elizabeth CLOSE; Paige, Madison, Davis and Kennedy PINDER Michael and Gillian PINDER. She is also survived by her sister Joyce (Lloyd DALGARNO) and family. Please join with her family in a celebration of Margaret's life with services to be held at Grosvenor Park United Church on Saturday, January 12, 2008, at 3: 30 p.m. and reception to follow at the University Faculty Club. Email condolences may be sent to mail@saskatoonfuneralhome.com. Contributions, in lieu of flowers, may be made to the Saskatoon Community Foundation (102 - 308 4th Avenue N, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan S7K 2L7). Arrangements have been entrusted to Saskatoon Funeral Home.
