McINTYRE, Patricia Alice Victoria (née O'GRADY)
Died peacefully at Ottawa Civic Hospital on January 16, 2008. Born 1928 in Fort Garry, Manitoba, daughter of Bill and Vera O'GRADY. Predeceased in 2005 by Donald, her husband of 55 years. Survived by three children of whom she was very proud: Douglas (Kimberley) of Redwood City, California, Sheila (Sanda) in Ottawa and John (Terri) of Clearwater, British Columbia Also survived by her grand_son Kale (Jayci,) her sister, Shelagh HOREL, and many O'Grady and McIntyre nieces and nephews and offspring, particularly Michael and Frances O'GRADY who hosted many a great party that included Don and Pat and who came east to join Pat's children and their spouses and Ellwood House Friends for Pat's gala 80th birthday celebrations last week. Pat was a strong believer in community service and gave her leadership, formidable organizing skills, bottomless energy, wit and generosity to many individuals, groups and institutions, notably the Canadian Girl Guide movement, Wellington County Museum, Helmcken Hospital and the Altar Guilds, Women's Auxiliaries and parishes of Anglican Churches in St. Lambert, Québec, Toronto Kingsway, Birch Island and Barriere, British Columbia and Ottawa. She truly loved life, tried to make every day count, and expressed her vitality in everything -- gardening, needlework and the vibrant colours and textures she carefully chose, Christmas baking, antiquing, running the farm, starting a bookstore, travelling, storytelling, designing and decorating her own homes and imaging how to re-do every space she visited, nourishing family ties and passing on kindnesses. Though she was a gifted homemaker, she broke all the moulds constraining women of her generation. She loved to pull people together, organize huge parties, get dressed to the nines, dance, laugh and, on special occasions, share some champagne. She managed all of this for five memorable days of birthday gatherings last week. She had integrity and courage to burn. We will miss her dearly. Cremation has taken place. There will be no memorial services. If desired, memorial donation may be made to a charity of your choice.

O'GRADY, M. James " Jim"
Born: July 25, 1936, Timmins, Ontario
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden death of the beloved husband of Helen Alexiade O'GRADY and cherished father of James (Jamey) O'GRADY. His devotion to our small family was surpassed only by his generous spirit which will always be with us. Jim was loved and respected as a brother by Colleen (Lawrence DUMVILLE), Faye (Don KUIAK) and Ken (Marlene BINNIE). He was pre-deceased by his parents Mary REDMOND and Harold and by his brother Terry. He was loved as a brother-in-law by Maria and Tasso KARKAZIS, Ariadne and Howard GRIBBLE and Anne NOTOF and as an uncle to many from Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and California. Born in Timmins, Ontario in 1936, Jim grew up in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. He was both a star athlete and an outstanding student in his youth, winning the All-Ontario Midget AAA Championship with the Noranda Toilers in 1951-52. He enjoyed full scholarships to Queen's University, Arts '57 and Law '61 and was awarded a Viscount Bennett Scholarship to The Harvard Law School (LL.M. '63). Before starting his legal practice, Jim was the Special Assistant to the Solicitor General of Canada, the Honourable Larry Pennel. For 46 years he practiced law in Ottawa with Solway, Wright, Houston, Greenberg, O'Grady and Morin and O'Grady and Associate. At the time of his death he was practicing with the firm of Burke-Robertson. In 1998 he was elected a Fellow of The American College of Trial Lawyers. His career as a lawyer was characterized by the highest standards of professionalism, respect for those in need and unwavering dedication to his chosen profession. His service to the community included the office of President of the Consumer's Association of Canada and a member of the Executive Committee of the International Organization of Consumer's Unions. He was a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation Board of Arbitration. Jim's love of hockey was legendary including over 15 years as a coach in the Nepean Minor Hockey Association and a lifetime of preparation for the National Hockey League. Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa on Thursday, May 22, 2008, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at Notre Dame Cathedral, Sussex at St. Patrick on Friday, May 23, 2008 at 10: 30 a.m. Interment to follow at Pinecrest Cemetery.
