SULLIVAN, Frances
Mother, teacher, farmer's wife, owner of many rosaries. Born January 31, 1912, in Douro, Ontario Died December 6, 2007, in Peterborough, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 95.
By Patrick SULLIVAN, Page L6
Frances SULLIVAN was born in an Ontario farmhouse on a stormy night in 1912. The weather marking that bookend of her life was just the opposite of what it should have been, because during her 95 years this petite woman was a beacon of calm for her farmer husband, six children and the hundreds of children she taught in and around Peterborough, Ontario
Frances was part of a generation of women who raised their families with no help from governments and little help from technology.
When she began teaching in the 1930s, the "education system" was a one-room school in Douro, Ontario The teacher's duties included lighting the wood stove and teaching students aged 6 to 16 - all for the princely sum of $650 a year. Although cleaning little boys sprayed by a skunk during recess wasn't in the job description, it was part of the job.
In the 1930s, teachers relied on the dreaded strap to maintain discipline. Not Frances. She was proud that not only did she never strap a student during her career - she never owned a strap.
Life on a mixed farm 60 years ago was far from idyllic, but after Frances married Joe in 1941 she faced the many challenges - water as hard as the Canadian Shield, diapers freezing on the clothesline, the chronic shortage of money - without complaint.
Instead of complaining, she said the rosary. And said it a lot, because danger was never far away on the farm. One son spent four months in hospital following a near-fatal tractor accident. Another survived a fall from a silo without injury only because silage on the ground broke his fall. Which probably explains why another son who enlisted in the army arrived in Chilliwack, British Columbia, for basic training to find not one but two St. Christopher medals pinned inside his duffel bag.
Frances taught many lessons outside the classroom. One involved the need to love and respect animals. Fifty years ago, it was not unusual to arrive in her kitchen on a cold winter morning to find tiny piglets or ducklings being kept warm - and alive - in the oven.
Frances also taught the importance of education. All six of her children attended university, including two who followed in her footsteps as teachers. So did all 10 grandchildren, a list that includes a teacher, a physician, a nurse and a physiotherapist.
After Joe died in 1984, Frances stayed on the farm for 20 more years. Until she stopped driving at 85, she made the short trip to mass almost every day in her trusty Chev Celebrity.
When she died at a nursing home, all her grandchildren's photos were on the wall facing her bed. Not a bad legacy, by anyone's reckoning.
Patrick SULLIVAN is Frances' son.

LINTON, M. Charlotte " Peetie" (née MURPHY)
Passed away suddenly, at home, on Saturday, April 26, 2008, at the age of 92. Born in Halifax to E.J. MURPHY and Ethel (SULLIVAN,) Peetie was the middle child of five, Catherine and Barbara, who predeceased her, a younger sister, Carol, and brother, Edward. She shared many happy stories of her family growing up in their beautiful house on Rhuland Street, as well as the good times enjoyed summering in Jollimore at "Unadilla" on the shores of The North West Arm. Peetie attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart, where she made many lifelong Friends. She went on to Dalhousie, receiving a B.A. in 1937, and then to McGill, where she earned a graduate degree in Library Science. She loved to tap dance and starred in the "Red and White Review" at McGill. Well-educated and an avid reader, Peetie began her career as a librarian at the Halifax Herald where she worked for the next 10 years, introducing many innovations. She did volunteer work in Halifax during the war including decoding navy messages and editing soldiers' letters. Peetie married Bill in 1948, and began raising their family, but she always found time to contribute to her community. She worked through the Library Committee to help found the Halifax Library. She was a long-time member of the Junior League, and served on the Board of the Victorian Order of Nurses. Peetie was a generous and thoughtful friend to many. Whether visiting people in their times of need, or contributing extensively to her bridge and book clubs, she was always thinking of others. Throughout her life, the Catholic faith was always important to her, and she followed "The Golden Rule" as a matter of course. After Bill retired, they spent considerable time in Florida and Chester, enjoying Friends and family. She became a remarkable strength for Bill during the latter years of his life, caring for him until he died in 2006. In her later years, Peetie was surrounded, at her home on Studley Avenue, by good Friends, her daughter, Cathy, and had the care and Friendship of Rosanne Bedard, Hedy Gavel, and Ina Burke. Mom was the glue of our family and our needs always came first. She is survived by her children, Cathy BETHUNE (Dr. Graeme), Halifax; Anne GREENE (Erick), Missoula, Montana.; Bill (Marilynne DAY), Toronto; David (Susan MYKETYN), New Glasgow, and her grandchildren, Jennifer, Gillian, Tom, David, Jeff, Allison, Robin, Christine, Philip and Andrew. We will all miss her letters, lists and quotes from her father E.J. Visitation will be between 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Friday, May 2, in J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor Street, Halifax. A funeral mass will be held in Canadian Martyrs Church, 5900 Inglis St. in Halifax, on Saturday at 11 a.m. Interment will be at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Pheonix Youth Programs (www.phoenixyouth.ca), a favorite charity of Peetie's.

KLOEPFER, Clarence Victor
A Generous Man of Achievement
Victor KLOEPFER, loved and respected by a close family and many Friends, died peacefully on the morning of March 11, 2008 at Saint Paul's Hospital in Vancouver. Vic was a generous man who loved life and left a legacy of service and accomplishments that has enriched the lives of many people. Born in Calgary on May 24, 1933, Victor was the third of four children born to Arthur and Philomena KLOEPFER. As the name Clarence was too difficult to pronounce by his siblings, the family switched to the second name of Victor in honour of the Queen with whom he shared his birth date. Arthur worked as a manager for United Grain Growers and Philomena as nurse and President of the Canadian Cancer Society. Victor's industrious and service-oriented life began as a young boy working jobs as a newspaper and grocery delivery boy, and serving as an altar boy and Eagle Scout. Vic was an exceptional student who graduated from Saint Mary's High School prior to receiving a scholarship to the University of Oklahoma. After earning his Petroleum Engineering degree in 1954, he returned to the burgeoning Alberta oil industry. Working in the offices of Husky Oil, Vic happened upon the secretarial pool where he met and fell in love with Olive SULTAN. Courtship ensued, and the baby carriage followed their marriage in the spring of 1957, with the births of Susan, Jay and Tony. A keen intellect and strong work ethic soon earned Victor the position of Chief Engineer at Banff Oil at the ripe age of 32, moving up to the Manager of Engineering when the company was purchased by Aquitane Company of Canada. He then co-founded the pre-eminent petroleum consulting firm of Kloepfer and Associates (now GLJ Petroleum Consultants) at the age of 39. Vic was recognized for his achievements by his peers in 1981 with the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy's Gold Medal Award of Distinction for outstanding contribution to the oil and gas industry of Canada. Within ten years, Victor retired from the consulting firm, which had reached a staff of 60, and focused his business acumen on his holding company Permez Ltd. while serving on numerous corporate boards. While he relished his business accomplishments, Vic's real pleasures came from time spent with his family and Friends, all of whom will miss his casual demeanor, sense of humour, optimism, modesty and confident pronouncements. Many benefited from his sincere interest in the well being of others. Humble and private about his charitable contributions, it was important to Victor that he give generously, both of his time and his money, and he served on the boards of a number of social service organizations. Vic's achievements were never in a quest for acquisition, but as a means of creating and enriching personal relationships. Vic was a role model to his family as husband and father, as a mentor to business colleagues and as a supportive friend. Victor loved outdoor recreation with Friends and family including hiking, skiing, camping, cycling and sailing. He also had a soft spot for the myriad pets that were an integral part of the family over the years. Despite a distinct and admitted lack of aptitude for foreign languages, Vic was a world traveler, starting with international business trips, followed by numerous explorations with family and Friends, spanning all five continents. Hawaii was a special recharging spot for Olive and Vic. Serious vacationing took place at their holiday homes in Whitefish, Montana and Sidney, British Columbia, the sites of many gatherings of family and Friends. Vic's grandchildren hold special memories of holidays with Grandad, who always took a keen interest in each of their development and achievements. Looking for the warmest climate within Canadian borders, Olive and Victor relocated from Calgary to West Vancouver in 1991. Upon arrival, the Rotary Club of Vancouver played an important role in their social and service life. Vic was honored for his contributions to the Rotary Club with a Paul Harris Fellowship in 2004. Olive and Vic celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary this last April 27, 2007 with a most memorable trip to Hawaii with their family. During his final days, Vic marveled at the full and enjoyable life he had led, and how very fortunate he was to have been surrounded by family and Friends throughout his journey. Victor is survived by his wife Olive Mary, daughter Susan, sons Jay and Tony - and their three spouses, sister Anna Mae, brothers Phil and Lorne, and eight grandchildren. A special thanks is offered to all of the dear people who have visited, called and supported Vic and Olive during Vic's recent illness. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully suggests donations to the Union Gospel Mission www.ugm.ca as a memorial of Vic's service to others. Family and Friends are invited to a celebration of Vic's life to take place at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, 3811 Point Grey Road, Vancouver on Monday, March 31, from 2-5 p.m. To offer on-line condolences, please visit www.kearneyfs.com and follow the prompt to 'tributes'.
