GRENON, J. Émile
By Aline GRENON, Page A14
Father, cribbage player. Born June 17, 1909, in Casselman, Ontario Died August 22 in Montreal, probably of heart failure, aged 97.
The son of an enterprising farmer turned carpenter, Émile was born the second of seven children. Graduating with a commerce degree from Bourget College, in Rigaud, Qué., in 1933, at the height of the Depression, most of Émile's first year out of school was spent looking for work. It was not until he heard of a Sudbury merchant in need of a bookkeeper that things began to look up. Telephoning from the Casselman general store, he was asked "How soon can you get here?" He responded "Within 24 hours."
After a year bunking out in the back-room of the place where he worked, Émile acquired a surrogate family when he moved into the boarding house operated by Mme. Clémentine LEFEBVRE- PAQUETTE, a remarkable woman for whom Émile developed a high regard. However, it was her entrepreneurial son Roméo who would change Émile's life. The two struck up a Friendship and one day, Roméo let drop that a well run grocery business in the then-booming mining town of Larder Lake stood a good chance of success. Émile agreed that it probably would and promptly forgot about it until Roméo informed him that he had purchased the lot that would hold their store. Although taken aback, Émile felt obliged to honour his unintentional promise and, with a small sum of borrowed money, he left Sudbury to join Roméo in business. Thus was born Paquette and Grenon (or P and G as it soon became known): the result of one man's vision and another's commitment to Friendship.
The initial years were difficult. To make ends meet, the partners delivered firewood house-to-house with a horse and wagon. At the best of times, the future appeared uncertain, and at the worse it was downright bleak, particularly when a bank manager, convinced that French-Canadians lacked business acumen, cut off their line of credit without warning. Luckily, a local bootlegger named "Black Nellie" lent them sufficient money to permit the business to survive and thrive. P and G eventually grew to eight stores.
With the advent of the Second World War, Émile enlisted in the Canadian army. Although he had no medical training, he was posted to the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. He often joked that this was because his brother was a doctor and one of his sisters a nurse! His was, in the parlance of the times, a "good" war. Stationed mainly at Camp Borden, Émile continued to look after P and G's accounting needs. On three occasions, he received orders to ship out to Europe, only to have them rescinded. It was during one such occasion, while awaiting transportation in Québec City that he met the charming and attractive Berthe SAMPSON/SAMSON, who was working in a munitions factory. They wed in 1946. That she married him in spite of a mix-up as to his background (the result of a letter from a confused Casselman priest who mistook him for an unsavoury cousin with a similar name) proves the extent of her faith in him. Together they would have three children. Sadly, Berthe died in early 1967, after a struggle with breast cancer.
Émile's loneliness over the next 20 years was mitigated somewhat by frequent travel, his love of golf, curling and cards, a close circle of Friends and the presence of his children. However, the next milestone in his life occurred when he met the remarkable Phyllis FRISBY, whom he married in 1986. Fun-loving and strong-willed, she reintroduced a degree of warmth and bustle into his life. He found it difficult to recover from Phil's death in 2002.
Émile's last years were spent in Montréal. Possibly his greatest joy during this period came from the countless games of cribbage he played with his children and his grand_son, Daniel.
Aline is Émile's daughter.

McKEAG, Honorary Colonel (Retired) The Honourable William John, CM, OM, CD, B. Comm., LL.D
At home on Thursday, August 23, 2007 William John (Jack) McKEAG died surrounded by his family. Beloved husband of Dawn CAMPBELL for 56 years. Loving father of Janis (Clifton RICHARDSON,) Darcy (Tom CRAWFORD), Kelly and Douglas (Onalea GILBERTSON), and grandfather of Scott and Colin REES and Stephanie (Alan SAMUELS,) Shannon and Matthew CRAWFORD. Survived by niece Ellen (Kowalski) sisters-in-law Sharon (Vic NAIMISH), Sonya (Scott WRIGHT), Dilly (Bill BURNS) and Pat (Drewett) and one brother-in-law Keith CAMPBELL. Jack was born on March 17, 1928 to Thomas and Isabelle McKEAG in Beresford, Manitoba. He was 18 months old when a car/train collision at Chater, Manitoba killed his mother and older sister. Jack was thrown clear, unharmed, and with the consent of his father, was adopted by George H. McKEAG (cousin of Thomas) and his wife Elizabeth BIGGAR. Jack grew up in Winnipeg, attending Queenston, Robert H. Smith and Kelvin Schools. He graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1949 with a Bachelor of Commerce. He then joined the family business Security Storage Ltd. (sold to British Traction in 1956) remaining there until 1960, serving as President 1952-60. He helped found McKeag-Harris Realty, latter known as McKeag Realty, and maintained an active role until 2000. Jack was a 'generous and giving guy' who volunteered in his beloved Winnipeg in a great variety of causes. He was a life-long member of St. Andrew's River Heights United Church. He joined the Kiwanis Club in 1951 and thoroughly enjoyed his association, keeping up contact with Friends that he met and worked with in the organization. He served as the President of the Winnipeg Club and as District Governor of the 67 Clubs in Western Canada. The family excursions to Kiwanis conventions across Canada and the U.S.A. rank high in memorable family trips, full of happenings and mis-happenings. Jack loved politics and worked locally for the Liberal party through many elections. In 1977, Prime Minister Trudeau appointed Jack as Lieutenant-Governor of the province of Manitoba, a position he held for 6 years. He was deeply honoured to have served Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth. He enjoyed travelling the province, attending fairs, festivals and curling bonspiels. Over 36,000 people from all walks of life attended functions at Government House. Following his tenure as Lieutenant-Governor, Jack returned to the business sector. During this time he served on a number of Boards of Directors provincially, nationally and internationally. These Boards of Directors included: Canadian Motorways Ltd. (1963-80); M.E.P.C. Canadian Properties Ltd. (1974-77); The Investors Group (1975-98) Johnson and Higgins Willis Faber Ltd. (1976-92); Grace General Hospital (1976-86); Manitoba Museum of Man and Nature (1976-84) Greater Winnipeg Gas Company (1978-86); Norcen Energy Resources Ltd. (1980-86); The Council for Canadian Unity (1981-87); Governor of the Olympic Trust of Canada (1983-91) and various community organizations. He was also a member of the St. Charles Country Club, The Manitoba Club, and past member of Winnipeg Winter Club, and Lakewood Country Club. Jack loved duck hunting with his Friends and family. He became a member of Ducks Unlimited (Canada) in 1976, serving as President 1984-85 and as Chairman 1986-88. He was a big booster of the Winnipeg Jets too, serving as President 1976-77) In 1973, Jack was appointed Honorary Colonel of the Fort Garry Horse, enthusiastically supporting the regiment until retirement in 1998. Jack was the recipient of many honours during his lifetime, including: The Knight of Grace in the Canadian Priory of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint_John of Jerusalem (1971), Knight of Justice (1982); Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal (1978); Canadian Decoration (1986), Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation (1993) Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal. Jack and Dawn were keen travellers and covered a great part of the world. Always, however Winnipeg was home. The favourite place for the family to gather each summer was at Granite Lake, Ontario. In spite of all Jack's honours and activities, he always had time for his family activities - be it school, hockey, soccer, baseball, swim meets or the horse barn. He was always ready with a little 'walking around money' for 'his Buds'. For the first time since 1980, Jack could not spend part of the winter in Sarasota, Florida. He was too ill to travel. During his illness, Jack was looked after by a legion of caring people at the Grace Hospital and by the Home Care and their Palliative Care Unit. Angels All! It allowed him to die at home in the midst of his family. A special thanks to Doctor T. Morgan and Colonel Max Ryan.
