SAINT_AMAND, John Raymond Jr.
By Peggie GRAHAM and Marilyn KEDDY, Page L6
John Raymond SAINT_AMAND Jr. Union organizer, teacher, partner, brother, uncle, friend. Born January 29, 1943, in Galt, Ontario Died October 31, 2007, in Kentville, Nova Scotia, of cancer, aged 64.
John SAINT_AMAND approached his death the same way he lived his life: joyfully, selflessly, fearlessly and with great integrity.
His room was the busiest on the ward as he welcomed visiting family and Friends. Tears were for outside the room. Within, there was laughter, stories, reminiscences and his continuing concern for others. He wrote his own obituary so he could honour those who had inspired and assisted him, but more to spare his partner, Marilyn, the task.
This concern for others was a hallmark of John's life and led him into a career organizing in the Canadian trade-union movement. John graduated with a master's in sociology from Dalhousie University in Halifax. He taught at Mohawk College in Hamilton for many years and later at Dalhousie.
During his Mohawk years he became interested in organizing campaigns with trade unions associated with the Confederation of Canadian Unions. John left his teaching job to volunteer to help Cape Breton coal miners form their own Canadian Mineworkers Union. Although they did not win the vote to change unions, John always saw success in people having the confidence to join together to fight for what they believed in. From 1985 to 1989 he organized in the "pink ghetto" of child-care workers and staff at women's shelters.
John met Marilyn KEDDY, who became his life partner for 32 years. When they opted for retirement, they took on a major challenge: the top-to-bottom renovation of an old house that was to be their new residence. Unfortunately, they had just a few short months to enjoy their handiwork before John was diagnosed with cancer.
An avid fisherman and outdoorsman, John delighted in taking visitors out in his boat with his dogs. He was also a talented musician who played viola. As Marilyn remarked when she was gathering photographs to display at the celebration of John's life, "There was no problem finding good pictures of John." In almost every one he was smiling - on picket lines, in China, on camping trips, at conferences and conventions and in classrooms.
His wholehearted contribution to the trade-union movement was recognized with the establishment of three annual John St. Amand bursaries from the Confederation of Canadian Unions. It was a tribute he accepted with characteristic modesty.
Family, Friends, federal and provincial politicians, academic and community colleagues filled the Mahone Bay fire hall to celebrate the too-short life of this remarkable man. John would have loved it.
Peggie GRAHAM is John's friend, and Marilyn KEDDY is his partner.

Woman's actions save boy in crash
By John MINER, Mon., June 2, 2008
Seaforth -- In the last few seconds of her life, Ronalee ALLEN did what she had spent a lifetime doing -- trying to save a child.
ALLEN was killed Friday on Highway 4 in a crash with a truck north of Hensall.
Her family said they've been told by police she tried to avoid the truck, but was trapped by a guard rail. Still, her move to hit the guard rail kept her minivan from crashing into the truck full on, saving her one-year-old passenger from being killed with her.
"If they had hit head-on, the baby wouldn't have made it," said Ronalee's mother, Lorraine SAINT_JOHN.
The child remained in critical, but stable condition in a medically induced coma at London Health Sciences Centre yesterday.
Police have charged the driver of the truck with careless driving.
The day of the tragedy had started as one of jubilation for ALLEN.
Her eldest daughter, Breezey, had received a call from her mother with the news that the family would be able to adopt the child they had been caring for since September -- the child who was injured in Friday's fatal crash.
Ronalee, 42, then drove from their home in Seaforth to Exeter to tell her husband, Shawn, vice-principal at Exeter public school.
It was on the way home from delivering the news that ALLEN was killed.
"She always said she wanted to die fast and for a purpose and she did," said Breezey, 20.
Sitting around their kitchen table in Seaforth yesterday, her husband and four children emotionally remembered the mother who had taken in more than 150 kids -- many of them as foster kids and others who needed temporary shelter -- and rushed to help other people.
"She would say, 'If we don't do it, who will?' She lived her faith," said Shawn.
"Each child that moved into our house was not considered a visitor, not considered a guest or a foster child. They were considered part of our family."
She wasn't satisfied with helping only the people she could directly reach. The fridge in their home is still covered with the faces of children she had sponsored in foreign countries.
"It wasn't a tithe or an obligation -- she genuinely cared about them," said her son, Josiah, 17.
Word of ALLEN's death prompted dozens of tributes on the social networking website Facebook, with many remembering the direct woman with a big heart.
"She was in a lot of people's lives whether you liked it or not," said her mother.
Breezey said while "People always say that someone comes in and out of your life and you forget them… you can't forget my mom because she kind of hits you like a train. She is a very blunt person."
Ronalee is also survived by son Makaylie, 15, and daughter, Olivia, Shawn said it took him years to appreciate his wife's special sense for helping people.
"It's like in hockey where there are fabulous players who can go into the game, survey the situation, understand the whole setup and flow and go and get a goal.
"She could see a person, a situation and know exactly what the future could be. She would go in and work on making the preferred future happen," he said.
She also had an infectious sense of humour that drew people to her, both young and old, her family said. Her campfire at Fair Havens Christian campground near Orillia, where she worked summers, was always a popular spot.
"All of my Friends would go there and they would be hanging out with my mom," said Breezey.
The family has rented the Seaforth Community Centre for a memorial service Wednesday at 2 p.m. People are advised not to wear formal attire, but to be in their pyjamas, something ALLEN wore everywhere, including when she dropped her kids off at school.
That's what their mother wanted -- she warned them she'd haunt them if they attended her funeral in black, her children said.
Shawn said his wife of 18 years wasn't a soft-spoken women.
"You knew how she felt, you knew what she thought. Everything she did was from the heart, making things right."

ALLEN, Ronalee Louise
It is with great sadness, that the family of Ronalee Louise ALLEN announces that on Friday, May 30, 2008 Ronalee was pulled into the loving arms of her heavenly Father. At 42 years young, Ronalee was a strong, devoted mother, God-sent wife, beautiful daughter, precious friend, and the center of everything she was involved in. People flocked to her to share life's pain and tribulations. Ronalee knew what to say to sooth and bring resolution; she had intuition and people skills beyond comprehension. She was well known for her stubbornness, smart remarks, caring attitude, and selfless, sacrificial love. She gave her all for those she loved. Ronalee is, and always will be, loved, missed and forever remembered by her enamoured husband, Shawn, devoted mother, Lorraine SAINT_JOHN, stunning and beautiful daughters, Breezey, 20, Makaylie, 15, and Olivia, 12, and her gracious, fun-loving sons, Josiah, 17, and Eli, 13 months. Her whole life was about laughing while spending time with her family and summers with Friends at Fair Havens, reading, napping in her blanket, and drinking Shawn's red wine with Friends. Many thanks to all who have provided care and support through this difficult time. The jubilant celebration of Ronalee's life will be held at the Seaforth District Community Center, 122 Duke St, Seaforth on Wednesday June 4, at 2: 00 p.m. It is requested that all attending wear their favourite pair of pyjamas in honour of Ronalee. Please, no black. All children are welcome. If so desired, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Fair Havens Bible Conference, Compassion of Canada, or an education fund for her children.
