Heat victim couldn't afford air conditioning fee
By Canadian Press, Wed., August 8, 2007
Sarnia -- Neighbours say a mentally ill woman found dead in her sweltering apartment couldn't afford air conditioning.
Police cited excessively hot temperatures in Suzanne YOUNG's apartment as a possible factor in the 49-year-old's death. "It is possible that the heat contributed to her death," said coroner Dr. David EDEN.
He added there was no reason to suspect foul play.
YOUNG was found in her bed on the weekend by a neighbour who became concerned after not seeing her take her usual morning walk.
"We were all wondering where she went because the last day we saw her was Thursday," said Timothy DUQUETTE, who lives in the area.
Shanna MacDONALD, who adopted YOUNG's 15-year-old daughter as a child, said YOUNG was on medication for mental illness, including schizophrenia.
Friends said YOUNG was living on social assistance and cleaned up the parking lots at two local coffee and convenience stores for extra money.
Because of her fixed income, YOUNG could not afford the $50 monthly fee charged by her landlord to cover electricity costs of a window air conditioner, said her friend Jane McNEVAN.

Accused and victim knew each other
By John EDWARDS, Page 1
Three shots that rang out Saturday afternoon, just a block from the Collingwood Ontario Provincial Police detachment, have rattled a normally quiet neighbourhood.
James LEONE, 58, of Thornbury has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of D'Arcy MOLLOY, 43, of Collingwood.
A source close to the case said LEONE was father-in-law to the victim until several years ago when MOLLOY and his wife split.
But police won't confirm details of the relationship, saying simply that the accused and the victim knew each other, but wouldn't say what their relationship was.
Police said there were two 911 calls from residents who heard gunshots at about 3: 15 p.m. and they arrived at 285 Napier Street shortly thereafter. The street was sealed off until late into Saturday evening.
A resident of the street, who asked not to be identified, said it appeared two ambulances were on scene shortly after the incident and members of the Ontario Provincial Police's Emergency Response Team and Canine Unit also responded.
The resident said the activity was centred at the home at 285 Napier St. but members of the tactical and canine units swept through the neighbourhood, searching under bushes and hedges.
Nathan McDONALD, who lives eight doors away, said he saw two young children taken out of the house by police before the standoff began. "I was told by police to get in my house and lock the door," said McDONALD, who is new to the street.
Police said officers, members of the tactical unit, were brought in from a number of neighbouring detachments including Huronia West, Nottawasaga, South Georgian Bay and Caledon.
LEONE appeared in court on Monday and was remanded until Tuesday for a video remand appearance in Barrie.
According to the Fawcett Funeral Homes website, funeral arrangements for MOLLOY are pending.
MOLLOY, born May 3, 1964, is survived by a son, Elliott, his parents Daniel and Geraldine MOLLOY, and three brothers; Sean and sister-in-law Kristen; Patrick and his partner Paula CROWE and Ryan.
MOLLOY did residential and commercial painting.
In 2004 he was in Collingwood court on charges of production and possession of marijuana in connection with a raid by the Huronia Combined Forces Drug Unit at a Napier Street address, believed to be the same home.
Police recovered plants and growing equipment with an estimated value of $25,000 at the time.

MacDONALD, Margaret Joan
It is with overwhelming sadness that we announce the death of Margaret Joan MacDONALD in Burlington on December 20th, 2006. Marg was the cherished wife of the late Bob MacDONALD, much loved mother of Sara and Sandra and a proud and doting 'Nana' to Christopher. As her husband, Bob often commented she was a 'remarkable woman' and together they made a great team and shared a wonder ful life. Marg's life encompassed early days teaching in one-room schoolhouses to returning to University when many others her age were thinking about retirement. Marg logged many a mile on her 1970 red Ford Pinto driving back and forth to McMaster University where she earned her B.A. Marg genuinely cared about people and to this end she was a consummate volunteer who gave tirelessly of her time to such associations as the Halton Childrens' Aid Society, the Burlington Literacy Council and the Heart and Stroke Foundation, among others. She was special, with that dazzling smile and gracious manner. She was always a lady. She will be missed so very much by all who knew and loved her. We would like thank Anja and Gus for their care and devotion and for always being there, Gabrielle for her love, wisdom and compassion, Auntie Helen for her Friendship, laughter and much anticipated visits, and Jutta for her grace and humour. Thanks also to the many Friends who have visited these last months and kept Marg's spirits up following Bob's death. There will be an informal 'tea' to celebrate Marg's life on January 28th, 2007, from 2-4 p.m. at the Royal Botanical Gardens, 680 Plains Road West, Burlington, Ontario. Memories, thoughts or stories of Marg may be sent to the MacDONALD family c/o RememberingMarg@hotmail.com. Donations if desired may be made to the Stephen Lewis Foundation: Easing the Pain of HIV/ A.I.D.S. in Africa, 260 Spadina Avenue, Suite 501, Toronto, Ontario, M5T 2E4 or www.stephenlewisfoundation.org

QUINN, Leonard " Len" William
By Annabel MacDONALD, Page A16
Husband, father, golfer. Born March 9, 1924 in North Bay, Ontario Died November 2, 2006 in Waterloo, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged 82.
Len was born and raised in North Bay, the eldest of six children. He attended Scollard Hall School and was taught by priests who had a positive influence on his life. However it was Pauline, a beautiful French woman, who caught his eye. He joined the navy at the age of 18 and was stationed off the coast of Cape Breton during the Second World War. On one of his leaves, he called Pauline and suggested they marry the following week. VE day was announced on their honeymoon.
Len joined Bell Telephone as a lineman; he was afraid of heights, yet there he was climbing telephone poles. The children came quickly for this passionate Catholic couple, compelling Len, at the age of 28, to make a career move. Len started selling individual life insurance for Mutual Life. Going door-to-door, (either on foot or by bus, as he couldn't yet afford a car) and working on 100 per cent commission, Len was a natural salesman. Along the way, seven children arrived: Jerome, Blair, Caroline, Marie, Christine, Marc and Annabel.
The seven became eight with the legal sponsorship of Clement, an engineering student from Sri Lanka, who became son No. 4. Our father made time in his own way to connect with each of us.
Len moved the family to Waterloo (and the company's head office), settling into upper management in 1965, and retiring after 35 years of service.
As time permitted Len improved his golf game. Len and Pauline (and their golf clubs), travelled extensively to many countries. Len was known for his great sense of humour, his ability to make anyone, from the milkman to royalty, feel good and smile.
He also had a reputation for always being early, never late, for any appointment or function and his family respected this measure of the man.
Len had a short-term memory issue. No one was surprised when in the fall of 2005 his medical diagnoses confirmed this and the prospect for further deterioration. This retired leader and executive who was always in control, accepted his diagnosis with grace.
Pauline assumed the role as matriarch, caring lovingly for her prince.
Len's family never imagined that he would be the first to die, but Len seemed to know he would be first. He always hated waiting in line! In his final week with us, he asked for assistance in composing a letter resigning his golf membership -- it was too hard to play.
On November 1, 2006, at 4 in the afternoon, he had a heart attack. His "back nine" occurred nine hours after life support was discontinued, waiting for many of his family, to gather to say good-bye.
Len was buried two days later, but Len wasn't ready to settle down yet: 24 days later Len was disinterred when his son Blair discovered he could have been buried in the veteran's section of the cemetery. Providence dictated that two children, along with Pauline, show up at the cemetery to see Len being transferred on a "golf cart" where a second, smaller and happier burial occurred. A tee, two golf balls and a retired golf club joined Len on the 19th hole. A large monument will boast Len's name, honouring our fallen comrade.
For more than 20 years, Len celebrated two events regularly with his large family (which had grown to include eight children-in-law, 19 grandchildren and two great-granddaughters). These were the Mother's Day and Christmas brunches at his golf club, two fêtes no one ever wanted to miss. This year Pauline decided to host the event, with Len's place of honour proudly displayed.
Annabel MacDONALD is Len's daughter.

GRANT, Doreen Violet (née COWAN) (February 21, 1924-June 3, 2007)
In her 84th year, as a result of a debilitating stroke, Doreen passed away surrounded by her family and under the compassionate care of the staff at Sunnybrook Hospital. Even though she was paralyzed and without speech, Doreen was able to communicate expressions of her love to the members of her family and Friends at her bedside with a smile and a squeeze of the hand. She was predeceased in 1983 by her husband of over 40 years, William (Bill) A. GRANT, an executive of Philips Electronics. She leaves behind her family: daughter Margaret, daughter Karen (Larry JACKSON,) daughter-in-law Carol GRANT and son Hugh (Sheri PURCELL.) She is lovingly remembered by her four grandchildren, Scott (Liz PLATTS), Tracey (Dave PENDER), Joni BRUNTON (Andrew LAMORE), and Kate JACKSON; and one great-grandchild, Jessica MacDONALD and many beloved nieces and nephews. Her two remaining brothers, Bert COWAN (Sue) of Vancouver and George COWAN (Lena) of Port Colborne also mourn her passing. She is predeceased by her siblings: Het NURSE, Boyd COWAN and Mary JOHNSON. Doreen remained vigorous, vibrant and independent until her stroke. She lived in her own home, carefully tended her own gardens and played bridge with a number of groups. 'Granny' was a welcome and active participant in the lives of her children and their families. The day of the stroke she was taking pleasure in the warm spring sun from her seat on the front porch swing of her home. Through her life Doreen was an active force in everything in which she became involved. Through the fifties and sixties, summers at the 'Lake of Two Rivers' cottage meant all the Algonquin Park staff knew her by name. She was also active in the Progressive Conservative Party at both the federal and provincial levels, participating in many election and leadership campaigns. Following cremation, a visitation will be held at the Pine Hills Visitation, Chapel and Reception Centre, 625 Birchmount Road, Toronto (416-267-8229) on Sunday, June 10, 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Memorial Celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

Hospital physiotherapy pioneer was a 'tough but sympathetic' taskmaster
For more than 25 years, she was a force to be reckoned with at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, where she helped polio victims and treated Canada's first separated conjoined twins
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Isabel BRODIE was a pioneer physiotherapist who played a key role in rehabilitating children crippled by a polio epidemic that swept across North America, and treated the first set of Canadian conjoined twins to be successfully separated. For more than 25 years, she headed the physiotherapy division at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, where she was a force to be reckoned with.
She was variously described by Friends as outspoken, feisty, loud, compassionate and caring. Doctor Barry SHANDLING, the former pediatric surgeon at Sick Kids, called her "tough but sympathetic" - exactly the qualities needed for treating infants whose heads were bent to one side because of wry neck.
The condition, which is caused by a shortened muscle, can be corrected in small babies provided someone has the skill and tenacity to twist the head to its proper position. Most parents and physiotherapists do a "wishy-washy" job of this because they are too concerned about being gentle, he says. Not so Ms. BRODIE.
In 1972, she performed physiotherapy on Heather and Kristen, the first set of Canadian conjoined twins to be successfully separated. Doctor SHANDLING performed the surgery and she helped to keep them active and to mobilize their joints.
Early in her career, she had treated scores of children who had been crippled by polio. Successive epidemics had affected thousands of children across the continent until Doctor Jonas Salk of the University of Pittsburgh developed a vaccine in 1955.
"Ms. BRODIE was a very dedicated, compassionate physiotherapist who was very effective in treating of children with paralysis, particularly those who suffered from poliomyelitis in the years before the vaccine was developed," said Doctor Robert SALTER, a professor emeritus of surgery at Sick Kids.
But her contributions at the children's hospital went beyond simply treating young people. She also became involved in their lives. She invited numerous children and their families to live at her home while the youngsters were undergoing treatment.
As director of physiotherapy, however, she was a strict taskmaster who asked her staff to address her as Ms. BRODIE, recalled Anne-Marie HAMILTON, a former co-worker. Later, after stepping down for health reasons and rejoining the front-line therapy team, she asked them to call her by her nickname, Skip. "Then we got to see her soft side," Ms. HAMILTON said. "We saw she had a sense of humour."
Isabel BRODIE grew up in Oakville, Ontario Her Scottish-born father, Robert BRODIE, had travelled around the world as a ship's carpenter before building the family home. Her mother, also from Scotland, was a homemaker who often returned to the old country to visit relatives.
Ruth MacDONALD, who also grew up in Oakville, remembers bicycling along the shore of Lake Ontario with Ms. BRODIE to visit Friends in the nearby village of Clarkson when both were girls. After the outbreak of the Second World War, Ms. BRODIE joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and convinced Ms. MacDONALD to do the same.
They were among 17,000 Canadians who enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force to serve in the Women's Division, which trained those who joined in more than 40 trades. Ms. BRODIE, who enlisted in 1942, worked as an equipment assistant and achieved the rank of leading air woman. She was posted to a number of places in Canada, as well as Torbay, Newfoundland., which at the time was considered to be "overseas."
She used to talk about the snow in Newfoundland being so high that she had to go in and out through an upstairs window to get to the mess hall, said Marion LEAVITT, a close friend and frequent travel companion over the years years. She also told about talking an air force chef into cooking up some steaks so she could organize a party. After the war, but while still in uniform, she was sent to England and posted to an Royal Canadian Air Force airbase in Topcliffe, Yorkhire.
After returning to civilian life, Ms. BRODIE used her military allowance to take a three-year physical therapy course at the University of Toronto. She graduated in 1950 and practised for about four years at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital before moving to Sick Kids, where she worked for more than a quarter of a century.
Mary SAURIOL, who worked with her at Saint Michael's, said: "She was wonderful with children. If they wanted to run around, she ran around with them." She often took outpatients on excursions to the Canadian National Exhibition or on day camping trips.
Next to her work, Ms. BRODIE's greatest love was travelling, both within North America by camper van, and abroad, including Russia, China and several times to India. She sponsored a number of children through the Christian Children's Fund and visited some of them overseas.
Her most constant companion for travel, sports and pastimes was Mable STUBBS, a Revenue Canada employee who had also served in the air force. After the war, the two women shared an apartment and later bought a house in Clarkson. In 1988, when Ms. STUBBS was quite ill with cancer, they took their final trip together, a Mediterranean cruise. Ms. STUBBS died shortly after their return. Friends said Ms. BRODIE took a long time to recover her bounce after the loss.
Their relationship was one of Friendship and convenience, but nothing more, said her niece, Heather HEAPS. Ms. BRODIE was engaged to a man who was killed during the Second World War, and later to a second man, but she broke that relationship off when she realized she still loved the first.
A woman of eclectic interests and athletic prowess, she filled her leisure time with camping, canoeing, cross-country skiing, bird-watching, photography, wood-carving, dressmaking, gardening, playing the organ, folk dancing, and playing bridge. She took up golf in her early 70s, and went on to win three hole-in-one trophies.
Isabel BRODIE loved entertaining, said Marilyn BRODIE, a niece by marriage. "The first time I met her was at a corn roast in her backyard. She had a giant pot like a witch's cauldron."
In her early 80s, she began to develop Alzheimer's disease and could no longer drive. But that didn't ground her. She would jump on her bicycle and ride to a favourite restaurant for ribs and a rum and Coke, Ms. HEAPS said.
As her health deteriorated, she began using a cane. "Unfortunately, the cane became a lethal weapon," Ms. HEAPS added. "When dining in a restaurant, she thought nothing of smacking the waitress with the cane to get her attention."
Isabel BRODIE was born in Oakville, Ontario, on May 31, 1920. She died of complications of Alzheimer's disease at the King Nursing Home in Bolton, Ontario, on June 1, 2007, one day after her 87th birthday. She is survived by a nephew and five nieces. She was predeceased by her older brothers John, a former Mountie, and Robert, who died in Walkerton, Ontario, in 2000 when the municipal water supply there became contaminated with E. coli bacteria.

Flight nurse logged hundreds of mercy missions for the Royal Canadian Air Force
In the 1960s, she was one of a few nurses qualified to fly search-and-rescue missions at any time of the day or night, and once helped save the life of a young polio victim
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- Racing against time to save the life of a six-month-old girl, Flying Officer Kay MacDONALD of the Royal Canadian Air Force kept an anxious eye on the girl's vital signs during a trailblazing medical evacuation in which new medical equipment was used to great effect.
It was midsummer in 1960, and Christina Moyes of Vanderhoof, British Columbia, was suffering from acute respiratory poliomyelitis. She was breathing by artificial respiration, but it was clear that the situation had its limitations. For more than 24 hours, the girl had experienced temporary halts in her breathing before going into a coma, and things weren't getting better.
Finally, the decision was taken to move her to a modern hospital in Vancouver and the Royal Canadian Air Force's search-and-rescue organization kicked into high gear. On July 16, Ms. MacDONALD and a doctor from the University of British Columbia flew into Prince George aboard a C-47 Dakota and collected Christina. The aircraft was part of 121 Composite Unit, which operated out of an Royal Canadian Air Force base on Sea Island, just south of Vancouver.
Ms. MacDONALD, an Royal Canadian Air Force nursing sister who spent most of her time treating patients at the base infirmary, was also on call 24 hours a day as one of a handful of nurses qualified to fly search-and-rescue missions. Known as flight nurses, they were widely respected throughout the air force for their dedication and for their skill.
Responsible for search-and-rescue in British Columbia and its territorial waters, as well as all Yukon, 121 Composite Unit flew hundreds of missions every year over vast expanses of land and ocean. From fishermen in danger of drowning when their boat capsized to pilots whose aircraft crashed in the dense bush, dozens of people owed their lives to the dedicated aircrew of 121, including flight nurses like Ms. MacDONALD.
Flying with two pilots, a navigator, a radio officer, a flight engineer and a two-man team of elite parachute rescue jumpers, Ms. MacDONALD had a lot of responsibility. "The flight nurse is responsible to the captain of the aircraft," she recalled years later. "She notifies him of any change in the condition of the patients, and recommends appropriate action. This can be a request to change altitude, or to land at the nearest airport for examination by a physician."
Christina's mercy mission wasn't the first one flown by 121 Composite Unit to help a polio victim that summer. During June, July and August, 121's Dakota aircraft, complete with huge orange letters that spelled "RESCUE" on its fuselage, flew 13 missions and evacuated 16 patients during an outbreak of polio that reached "near-epidemic proportions" in the interior of British Columbia.
Carefully placing Christina in a litter fixed to the inside of the aircraft, Ms. MacDONALD and the doctor hooked her up to a brand-new form of respirator. Connected directly to the windpipe, the "Bird breather" worked by inflating the lungs and then letting them deflate automatically. Driven by oxygen pressure, it is a positive-pressure apparatus that works on a closed circuit unaffected by the altitude of the aircraft. This meant that aircraft were able to fly at 12,000 feet, ensuring a more comfortable trip.
A few hours later, Ms. MacDONALD and her crew landed at Sea Island and carefully transferred Christina to an ambulance. The mission was over and another life was saved, she wrote in 1968 in The Canadian Nurse. "For the baby, this flight meant the chance to survive; for the evacuation team, the flight meant a new milestone: it was the first time that a Bird respirator had been used in mercy flying in Canada."
Christina's mother expressed her thanks in a letter dated December 6, 1960. Mary Moyes wanted to make sure Ms. MacDONALD knew exactly what she and the rest of the rescue crew had done for her daughter. "Thank God for men and a woman like you," Mrs. Moyes wrote. Happily, Christina fully recovered.
Kay MacDONALD grew up in rural Prince Edward Island during the Depression. After graduating from Charlottetown Hospital's School of Nursing during the Second World War, she worked in Halifax for the Department of Veterans' Affairs and Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. By 1957, she was ready for a change and on June 5 she enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Over the next 14 years, she served in Canada and Europe during the air force's golden era, a time when it boasted more than 2,000 aircraft and more than 50,000 men and women stationed in dozens of bases in Canada and abroad. Dressed in a crisp, white uniform crowned by a starched cap, she was a familiar sight to patients hospitalized at Royal Canadian Air Force stations in Cold Lake, Alberta., Sea Island, Trenton, Ontario, and in Marville and Grostenquin, France.
What she most loved to do, however, was to take part in airlift evacuations, and she participated in many in Canada and Europe. In fact, Royal Canadian Air Force brass thought so highly of Ms. MacDONALD's experience in the air and with her administrative, teaching and mentoring skills that she was appointed chief instructor of the aero-medical evacuation course at Trenton's No. 4 (Transport) Operational Training Unit. There, she taught flight nurses, nursing assistants and medical assistants sent from the army, navy and air force. Courses were three weeks long, with 15 students at a time.
Ms. MacDONALD, who was known for her sense of humour and approachability, took great pains to ensure her staff maintained high teaching standards. This wasn't too hard, since they revered her, said retired captain Gail HARROD of Ottawa.
"Kay was a wonderful boss, friend and mentor. She was widely admired for her nursing knowledge and dedication to her work," said Ms. HARROD, who worked with Ms. MacDONALD in Trenton from 1965 to 1966. "She was always professional yet approachable, a team player, a role model for us as a nurse and a lady."
Besides studying aviation physiology, decompression, load planning and how to survive a crash, students finished the course by taking a five-day training flight across Canada and the United States. Ms. MacDONALD and her instructors took pains to make sure that the exercise as realistic as possible. "Emergency conditions are simulated," she wrote. "Each student has a chance to be a 'patient' and to work as part of the nursing team or the documentation team."
Teamwork was highly stressed, since moving patients aboard the Royal Canadian Air Force's "flying hospital wards" demanded close co-operation between medical staff, the air evacuation team, and both aircrew and ground crew. "Teamwork among members of the air evacuation team is essential. The flight nurse is team leader and briefs her assistants on the nursing care and condition of patients; on the patients who require special observation on diets and medications; and on the use of special equipment for patient comfort," she wrote.
In 1971, Ms. MacDONALD left the Canadian Forces three years after her old unit at Sea Island was renamed 442 (Transport and Rescue) Squadron and relocated to Canadian Forces Base Comox on Vancouver Island. She retired with the rank captain and spent the next 14 years at Ottawa's Grace General Hospital where she worked as the discharge planning nurse.
Catherine (Kay) Jane MacDONALD was born October 8, 1920, in Pisquid East, Prince Edward Island. She died of cancer in Ottawa on April 29, 2007. She was 86. She leaves her nieces Louise, Adele and Anne, and nephews Charles, François, Pierre and Conrad.

SCHULTZ, Margaret " Marg" Agnes (née McLEAN)
(August 16, 1913-August 4, 2007)
On Saturday, August 4, 2007, my mother, Marg, died with her family by her side at The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg at the age of 93 years after putting her last piece of chocolate to rest.
Remaining to forever cherish Marg's memory are her daughter Peggy of Toronto; sister Leila (Lee) McDONALD of Winnipeg; niece Barbara KEHLER (Joseph) of Cartier, Manitoba; as well as many relatives, Friends and extended family across Canada who brought joy to Marg's life. She was predeceased by her parents Douglas and Leila McLEAN; husband Carl William SCHULTZ (F/O, DFC, Royal Canadian Air Force No. 77 Squadron) in 1956; brothers Robert Douglas McLEAN of Winnipeg (1973), John (Jack) Gordon of Ottawa (2004).
Born, raised and educated in Winnipeg, Marg graduated from Kelvin High School in 1929 and began her career at the Hudson Bay Co. She became buyer of women's millinery and later lingerie taking her to the Calgary store during the Second World War. Marg and Carl were married in Calgary as the war ended and returned to Winnipeg.
Daughter Peggy was born in 1949 and the family (with Carl's mother, Sophia) moved to Morden, Manitoba. For 5 years Marg worked with the finance department of Bruins Ford dealership. Active in the community, including Ladies Auxiliary, Canadian Branch No. 11 Legion, she made many lifetime Friendships.
1954 saw the family back in Winnipeg, as Marg joined Winnipeg Motor Products (later to become Park Pontiac Buick). Two years later, the world as Marg and her daughter knew it, changed with the sudden death of Carl. As a single mother, she became credit manager of Winnipeg Motors and began active involvement in the wider credit world.
In 1975 Marg became the first female president, in its 40 year history, of Credit Grantors Association of Canada. She was an Associate of the Canadian Credit Institute and held all offices, including president of Credit Women's International.
A credit manager with a heart for those whose circumstances made it hard to manage Marg's humour and smiling face influenced people from all walks of life. "Maggie" could make a story out of any life event!
"Retiring" in 1978, Marg soon took on part time employment with the Credit Bureau until well into her 70's. She was active in Winnipeg Council of Women, Manitoba Society of Seniors, Saint_John's Resource Centre, Sons of Scotland (Lord Selkirk 205). She continued to participate in credit conferences across Canada.
This last decade has seen Marg struggle to retain her sense of control as dementia and diminished eyesight challenged her daily life. She kept going long after it seemed she could not. Her own strength and spirit have been supported by care and devotion of staff and volunteers during Marg's last 8 years at The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. Thank you to them and to the companions who have added to Marg's quality of life.
In compliance with Marg's wishes, no formal funeral service will be held. A service of remembrance will be held at a later date. Marg will be buried with Carl in Brookside Cemetery.
Those wishing to honour Marg's memory may do so by making a donation to The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg, 276 Hugo Street N., Winnipeg, Manitoba R3M 2N6.

She was predeceased by her husband, Robert Murray MacDONALD; sister, Ruth; brothers, Donald, Ian and Bonar MacLEOD. She came to Canada (Manitoba) at the age of 11 and later attended high school and university in Toronto, graduating with a B.A. from Victoria College, University of Toronto in 1937. She entered nursing and graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1941 from Toronto General Hospital where she met her husband, Bob, when he was a visiting medical officer serving in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War. Settling in wartime Halifax, she quickly involved herself in church and community life. Because of her unique background, she had a special connection with members of the Chinese community. For 25 years she served as the honorary president and advisor of the Dalhousie Chinese Students' Society, which originated in her home. She had been a member of the Chinese Society of Nova Scotia since its inception in the 1970s. She served in leadership and executive positions in many organizations over the years. At St. Matthew's United Church, she was a founding member of the Ross Auxiliary, United Church Women, ran a children's mission band, started up the Sunday nursery, served on a committee to support a Vietnamese family, and volunteered at the St. Andrew's Church Sunday suppers. She also served for a time on the selection committee of Pine Hill Divinity College, interviewing candidates for the ministry. In the late 1940s and early 1950s she was very active with the Young Women's Christian Association as a board member and chair of the world service committee and gave occasional radio talks. She was a founding member of Women for Music, the Dalhousie-Kings Reading Club and the Halifax Canadian Federation of University Women. She served in Home and School Associations at the elementary, junior and senior high levels, and was often asked to give slide talks to classrooms on international topics. Over the years, Katherine canvassed for a number of charities, drove for 10 years for Meals on Wheels, kept up her contacts with Toronto General Hospital alumnae, and was a member of the Clan MacLeod Society. She met weekly for decades with a group of close Friends (the 'bag-lunch ladies'). She took an active interest in her husband's professional life at the university and together they hosted faculty and students, and participated in the International Students' Association. In the early days of the Indo-Canadian Society, she was invited to join the organization as an executive member. She took a refresher course and returned to nursing for a time in the 1970s. Whenever she and Bob traveled internationally, they visited former colleagues and students and Katherine maintained those Friendships worldwide. Katherine lived a rich life of service and will be missed by family and Friends. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 22, at 10: 30 a.m. in St. Matthew's United Church, 1479 Barrington Street, Rev. Ross Bartlett officiating. A family burial will be held at a later date in Hardwood Hills Cemetery, Sydney.

MacDONALD, Richard " MAC"
(September 3, 1947-December 16, 2007)
Richard MacDONALD (MAC) passed away suddenly on December 16, 2007 at his home. He created so many memories and he will be greatly missed but never forgotten. He would never want us to mourn his life (or write a cheesy obituary about it), for he had a great time! There will be no service by request and that is why Sherry, Emily and Dan are throwing a party in his honour to celebrate his life. We want to invite all who knew and loved my dad to come to: Sylvia's Restaurant (The Sylvia Hotel) 1154 Gilford St. (on English Bay) Vancouver, British Columbia Date: January 12, 2008 Time: 5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. Let's listen to some good music, drink beer and share some funny stories about Richard. My dad was never a big fan of flowers; he killed all the ones my mom ever tried to grow. So in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charitable organization that my dad fully supported and where my mom volunteers: WISH (Women's Information Safe Haven) Website: www.wish-vancouver.net We love you Daddy! Emily
