RATCLIFFE, William and Della and Mac
In loving memory of our parents William RATCLIFFE who passed away June 28, 1974 and Della RATCLIFFE who passed away August 12, 1985, and our dear brother Mac RATCLIFFE who passed away June 30, 1997.
When family ties are broken
And loved ones have to part
It leaves a wound that never heals
And with it, lonely hearts
But looking back on memories
Upon the path we trod
We bless the years we had with them
And leave the rest to God.
- Lovingly remembered by Aleda and Russell JOHNSTON, Kathleen THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, families and grandchildren

RATHWELL o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-01-05 published
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.
