SIRSLY, Claude Eugene
It is with deep sadness that Claude's family announces his sudden death on Thursday, May 8, 2008 as a result of complications from surgery. Claude was 59 years of age, and was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Antoinette (FICHERA.) He leaves, in sorrow and bewilderment, his wife Christena (KEON,) his brother and sister-in-law, Tony and Carol-Ann (TETRAULT,) and his nieces, Francesca and Dominique. Claude was always close to his wife's family - his sister-in-law, Mary KEON and her partner Lewis McCALL his brothers-in-law, Jim KEON and his wife Kathleen (BAKTIS) and David KEON and his wife Jane (BLOOMER.) He enjoyed following the progress of his nieces and nephews by marriage: Jody and Holly KEON; David KEON Jr., his wife Linda and their children Kaitlyn and D.J.; Anne Marie and Jim NEMETT and their children, Laura and Liam; Kathleen and Joe ZOLDOS, and their son Michael Tim and Sheila KEON and their sons, Patrick and Benjamen. Claude was passionate about everything he undertook, but particularly focused his attention on the three 'C's': cooking - he was an exceptional cook and enjoyed entertaining Friends and family construction - he had a talent for creating solutions to complicated problems in the apartment and at the cottage in Magog; and Christena - he advised her on her career and life choices throughout their Friendship of 39 years and their marriage of 32 years. One day, we will be able to make sense of losing this insightful, kind and considerate husband and friend. We will keep the faith until that day. There will be visitation at the Centre Funeraire Cote-desNeiges, 4525 chemin de la Cote-des-Neiges, 1-888-3426565 on Wednesday, May 14, 2008 from 17: 00 to 21:00. The funeral will take place on Thursday, May 15, 2008 at 10: 30 at St. Patrick's Basilica, 460 Boulevard Rene-Levesque West. Should you wish, donations in Claude's memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

With a wrist shot 'like a bullet,' she played hockey for 73 years
There's longevity in sport and then there was the veteran from Bala, Ontario, who competed for most of the 116 years that Canadian women have been playing organized hockey
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
It was on a frigid windswept lake in central Ontario's Muskoka region where Mickey WALKER's parents strapped a pair of bobskates to her tiny feet when she was three years old. As she grew, the girl played shinny with her father and four big brothers. She learned to stickhandle quickly. "If I didn't," she would recall, "I never would have had the puck."
At 12, Ms. WALKER joined her first hockey team with her brother's hand-me-down skates, an old stick (a new one cost 25 cents), and magazines wrapped around her shins for protection. She was 73 when the Ontario Women's Hockey Association recognized her as the oldest woman in Canada still playing, and 85 when she finally stopped skating in regular Monday night scrimmages at the arena in her native Bala, Ontario
She twice contested the Canadian women's championship in the 1930s, and pioneered the growth and development of hockey for girls and women. "She was so dedicated to women's hockey," remarked her friend of 25 years, Hazel McCALLION, the irrepressible mayor of Mississauga who's leading an effort to preserve Ms. WALKER's small mountain of hockey memorabilia. "She always encouraged young girls to get involved."
Ms. WALKER so loved the clean way women played that she spoke out against the violence in today's professional game every chance she could. "These young women play the game the way it should be played - without violence," she told The Muskokan newspaper in 1994. "I hate the violence of the National Hockey League! [Commentator] Don Cherry and the National Hockey League players who promote and play violent hockey should pay attention to those women.
"Great hockey players over the years, whether men or women, have never been violent. Only the goons who can't play the game and are out to injure the great players are violent. They should be barred from the game."
Little got her dander up like Mr. Cherry. "All he does is promote violence in the hockey telecasts and he makes videos out of them and sells them," she huffed in the Muskoka Sun in 1993. (Attempts to reach Mr. Cherry for comment were unsuccessful.)
Her disdain for violence and concern for women and children extended beyond hockey. Over several summers in Bala, she was known for sporting a sweatshirt emblazoned with the words: "My name is Mickey WALKER and I abhor mental, physical and sexual abuse against women and children. It has to be stopped!" She was also a fierce supporter of the death penalty.
She came into the world as Mary WALKER, the youngest of eight children born to Ada Berry WALKER and Captain John WALKER, who worked on Imperial Oil supply boats on the Great Lakes. The clan's Muskoka roots went back to the 1860s (Walker's Point bears the family name). The "Mickey" moniker stuck after young Mary endlessly sang a popular song she learned from the radio: "Mickey, pretty Mickey."
Her athletic skills came naturally. "We were a sports-oriented family," she recalled. "My mother was a beautiful skater and was still skating at 65. My father was a good hockey player well past the age of 50. So, hockey and sports just came naturally to me."
She also excelled at baseball and curling, and canoed well into her 80s.
Ms. WALKER began playing for the Bala girls' team in 1930. Practices were Friday at 4 p.m., and young Mickey so looked forward to them that she devised a way to get out of school early to get to the arena before anyone: She'd begin talking to someone in class until the teacher would holler, "Mary WALKER - out!"
That worked until the principal saw her scurrying along with her skates and stick before school was over. The next time the teacher spied his talkative pupil, she was kept for a half-hour after class.
"Well, that cured me," Ms. WALKER recalled in the 1995 history of women's hockey in Canada, Proud Past, Bright Future, by Brian McFarlane. "I never tried my little trick to get to the arena early ever again."
In 1934, Ms. WALKER's cousin returned to Bala after a stint in the semi-pro leagues in the United States, and joined the men's team in Bracebridge, Ontario, about 50 kilometres away. When he heard that the women's squad in nearby Bracebridge needed players, he told them about Ms. WALKER, who soon got an offer, accompanied by room and board.
When a teammate noticed that the toe of one of Ms. WALKER's skates was worn through, with her sock sticking out, she marched Mickey to her father's hardware store, where Ms. WALKER was handed a pair of $5 CCMs. They were the first new skates she'd ever owned.
She soon developed into her playing height and weight - 5 feet 8 inches, 130 pounds - and in her first year with Bracebridge, played for the national championship against the legendary Preston Rivulettes. The old Bracebridge arena was packed to the rafters. Ms. WALKER and her teammates had never played before such a large crowd and were so nervous, "it took us most of the first period to settle down," she told the Ice Times newspaper in 1991. The fearsome Preston girls, who reigned as champs for 10 years, were used to crowds and won the game 3-1 to retain their title.
Ms. WALKER and a group of Bala girls joined the team in Gravenhurst, about 15 kilometres down the road, for the following season, and again faced the Rivulettes for the national crown. The 1935 outdoor game was a disaster. For one thing, rain had dumped more than two centimetres of water onto the ice surface. "Have you ever tried to stickhandle on water?" Ms. WALKER later pondered. "The puck won't go anywhere."
For another, the champs had singled out Ms. WALKER as the only real threat on the opposing team. They identified her as the one whose wavy hair curled with perspiration (this was before helmets). Cries of "Get Curly!" could be heard from fans and the Preston bench.
Soon, the Rivulettes' big Marm Schmuck came barrelling down a wing straight at Ms. WALKER. " Step into her, Mickey! Step into her!" yelled her brother, Reg, from the stands. She complied, and both went down, but not before the Preston player's stick smashed Ms. WALKER across the nose and left her with two black eyes. "It wasn't an accident," she said, years later. A scar across the bridge of her nose was a lifelong souvenir.
As if that wasn't bad enough, an irate fan tried to swat Ms. WALKER with an umbrella every time she skated by. This time, her team lost 9-1, and the wild hit cemented her distaste for violence in hockey.
The Bracebridge and Gravenhurst teams folded and it was back to Bala until the Second World War broke out. At age 22, Ms. WALKER moved to Toronto to work at a small-arms plant that made Lee-Enfield rifles. Among 7,000 employees, she was soon picked among only a half dozen women to work in the "tool room," where she operated her own machine and earned the resentment of the men. "Girls in the tool room," she later mused. "Unheard of."
Two-and-a-half years later, she married a plant engineer and moved to Mississauga, where she played pickup games on the lake and in backyard rinks. Her daughter, Launi BANNISTER, a onetime figure skater, laughs heartily when asked whether she ever joined in. "Oh God, no! I didn't know what to do with a hockey stick!" Her mother was always chosen first and always shamed the guys with nimble skating and stick handling, and a deadly wrist shot that was "like a bullet."
But the story gets a little murky here. All her family will divulge is that Ms. WALKER endured back-to-back abusive marriages, both ending in divorce. She returned to Bala, alone, at 64.
She dived back into hockey, coaching a girls' team and captaining the Young Tymers, a squad of women over 35. She also started the Ice Girls, who met every Monday night at the arena for informal games. "There were no hockey programs for women or girls," she said about Bala. "So I started one. I'm trying to teach them that hockey is fun."
That's a lesson Ann KNIGHT learned. "She taught us how to stickhandle, how to steal the puck and how to love the game," said Ms. KNIGHT, who played alongside Ms. WALKER for a dozen years.
When Ms. WALKER turned 75, former Toronto Maple Leaf great Darryl Sittler was among dozens of people who sent her birthday greetings. She carried fan mail in her purse from Japan, Australia and the Netherlands.
In gratitude to her boosterism, the Ontario Women's Hockey Association in 1993 inaugurated the Mickey Walker Most Sportsmanlike Award. Ms. WALKER watched the Ontario Women's Hockey Association's ranks swell from a few thousand in 1975, the year it was founded, to about 40,000 players on 2,300 teams today, according to Fran RIDER, the association's executive director.
She loved the fact that women's hockey caught on globally, especially in 1990, the year of the first Women's World Championship, and 1998, when it was first played as an Olympic event. "You don't know how happy I am to see how far women's hockey has progressed," she enthused. "We've got just great players. They can do it all."
At the 1997 world championships in Kitchener, Ontario, she was interviewed by CBS television. The clip caught the eye of the late Charles Schultz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip and an avid hockey fan who had staged the Snoopy Senior Annual World Hockey Tournament in California every year. He sent Ms. WALKER an invitation to play on his team (the 75- to 80-year-olds) but she was battling the flu and couldn't go.
But she was well enough to show up at the 2000 world championship in Mississauga decked out in full hockey paraphernalia, and with her face painted red and white.
Incredibly, Ms. WALKER chain-smoked, starting at 25, and quitting only two years ago after a bout of pneumonia.
She died four days before her namesake trophy was awarded to four-time world champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Jennifer Botterill, who helped power the Mississauga Chiefs to the 2008 Esso women's national club championship in Charlottetown this month.
Mickey WALKER was born Mary Pearl WALKER in Bala, Ontario, on January 18, 1918. She died there on March 11, 2008 of natural causes. She was 90. She is survived by her daughter, Launi BANNISTER, son Stephen KNIPFEL and grand_son Joseph.

McALLISTER--In Memory Of Kay McALLISTER who passed on December 28th 2006
There was sadness when you left us
You didn't even know our names
Yet you lived your life for only us
Your goal to save us pain.
Your advice was like no other
And you taught us all compassion
"To walk a mile in someone's shoes
Before we judged their actions.
Other word of yours to ponder, was
"Learn from others mistakes
You cannot live long enough
Them all on your own, to make
And last but not least "do not have fun
At someone else's expense
"It is hurtful and may come back to you
Or one of your loved ones instead
When we would try to help you
Now our turn to care for you
You would always say "It's not the way
It's a mother's job to do.
As you passed on to the other side
Your memories stayed behind
To help us on our life's journey
And pass your wisdom down the line
We love you and we miss you
And when our time has come
To travel to the other side
We'll meet you one by one.
Sadly missed by : Larry, Linda, Jack and Ron and spouses (Shirley, Terrie and Peter).

McALLISTER--In Memory of Grandma and Grandpa
I remember many years ago
When I was just a child
We used to go to my grandparents house
And stay there for a while
With Grandma in the kitchen
Making goodies just for me
And Grandpa working in the fields
As happy as can be
Looking back now on that time
Seemed just a short while ago
I can still see their faces
For they were all aglow
All their Grandchildren were very special
Each in their own way
I'm sure I can speak for all of them
And in our hearts they'll stay.
In Loving Memory of my grandparents: Kay and Gordon McALLISTER.

CLARK, Alexander Barry " Arch"
On Wednesday, July 2, 2008, Barry succumbed to a 12 month battle with lung and brain cancer which was diagnosed in June of 2007 in Victoria, British Columbia. He was 62 years of age. Since September of 2007 when he was able to return to Saint Thomas, he has been a patient at the Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital. The wonderful team of Doctor Joel KEENLEYSIDE, Doctor Paula DONAHUE and the exceptional nurses on Units C and D prolonged his life and he was able to enjoy memorable times with family, former teachers and school chums. The family sincerely thanks the afore-mentioned and those who brightened his days with visits and outings. Barry was born in 1933 while his parents, the late Stanley and Agnes (McCALLUM) CLARK, lived in Dutton, Ontario. Shortly after his birth, the family moved to Saint Thomas where Barry attended Scott Street School and later excelled in academia, basketball and volleyball at CECI and Saint Thomas Collegiate Institute. He was fortunate to be able to attend University of Toronto on a full scholarship and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He entered the computer field at an exciting time and most of his career as an analyst was spent with International Business Machines Corporation - in Toronto, Montreal, Saint_John, Winnipeg and Calgary. Laterally, he spent his life in beautiful Victoria. He was an avid reader, a lover of jazz and he always kept fit by working out in the gym. Barry's older siblings will hold his memory close to their hearts - Bob (Mary Ellen) CLARK of the Philadephia area, Barb (Ken) TUFF of Saint Thomas, Bill (Patti) CLARK of Toronto and Newfoundland, and Bevin CLARK of Brockville. A special cousin, Doris (Stride) ROULSTON of London, will also hold him dear. Barry's nieces and nephews will always remember him for his quiet, gentle and caring nature - Meri-Sue, Mike (Hollie,) Mark and Margaret (John CONWAY) CLARK; Paul (Karen,) Jane (Bill IDSARDI) and Peter (Shelley) TUFF, Melanie CLARK- HANSEN and Jamie CLARK. Eleanor (McCALLUM) and Don BRANCHFLOWER of Glencoe and Alice (CLARK) COOK of London are his only surviving aunts and uncle. Barry bore his illness with great stoicism and determination. Cremation has taken place (Needham Funeral Service in London) and his ashes will be interred in Cowal Cemetery with his parents and many other family relatives and ancestors, all of whom originally came to the area from Argyleshire, Scotland. A memorial service and the interment of ashes will be held at a later date. Family and Friends will be notified of arrangements. "Always in our hearts"
