James, Patricia Dawn (nee Marshall) passed away peacefully on Friday, August 30th, 2019 at the Credit Valley Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer, at the age of 40. Trish was the adored wife and best friend of Chris. Amazing and devoted Mother of Tegan and Hayden. Cherished daughter of Walter & Deborah Marshall of Elmvale, Ont. and daughter-in-law of Phil & Helen James. Trish will be missed by her brother Chris Marshall, his wife Anna and her sister Stacy Marshall. She will also be lovingly remembered by her brother-in-law Robert, his wife Erin and their children Hunter and Quinn, as well as countless friends. Trish’s purposeful desire to experience the fullness of life seeped into every aspect of her being, from her relationships to her hobbies, to her faith. As a mother she instilled that desire in Tegan and Hayden by sharing her creative ventures, her love of nature and active living, and her love for new experiences through community camps. As a wife she loved fiercely and found a companion in Chris to share all of her passions. To her family and friends, old and new, she was warm, caring, and intentional in the time she spent making others feel as if they had known her infectious smile and quick wit all their lives. When she began running in 2013 she was not content to simply run a race, but ran to raise funds for cancer, long before her own battle began. Her desire for fullness took her to Normandy in 2016 where she completed her first half-marathon to commemorate the D-Day invasion. Trish and her family joined the congregation of St. George’s Anglican Church in Burlington where she grew in her faith. Her unwavering hope, in spite of her cancer diagnosis, gave her the strength to fight this disease to her last breath, where she was surrounded by her loving family. “The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing” (Zephaniah 3:17). Special thanks to all of our friends, neighbours, and our church for their friendship, generosity and compassion during Trish’s illness. In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in memory of Trish would be appreciated. Online condolences may be offered at oakviewfuneral.ca.

God’s Garden

God looked around His garden

And found an empty place.

He then looked down upon the earth,

And saw your tired face.

He saw the road was getting rough

And the hills were hard to climb.

So He closed your weary eyelids

And whispered “Peace be thine”

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you did not go alone….

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.

Always missed, Forever loved

Wife Ruth, children Tracy (Gerald Martin)

Leanne (Trevor Columbus) and proud poppy of Howard, Emma, Jacob, Aaron, Abby & Eva

In memory of Connie McLean September 1, 2009
We thought of you with love today.

But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too
We think of you in silence.
We remember how you look.
Now all we have is memories.
And your pictures in our book
Your memory is out keepsake.
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart. 

Lovingly remembered. Don, Danny, Ann Louise and families

In loving memory of Etta V. Maxim
May 22, 1937-August 19, 2017
It is sad to walk the road alone,
Instead of side by side.
But to all there comes a moment
When the ways of life divide;
You gave me years of happiness,
Then came sorrow and tears,
But you left me beautiful memories
I will treasure through the years.
In my heart and thoughts always,
Love you, Husband John

In loving memory of Etta Maxim
May 22, 1937-August 19, 2017
If I had all the world to give,
I’d give it, yes, and more
To hear her voice, see her smile,
And greet her at the door.
But all I can do, dear Mother
Is go and tend your grave,
And leave behind tokens of love
To the best Mother God made.
I like to think when life is done,
Wherever heaven may be,
She’ll be standing at the door
Up there to welcome me.
Loving Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother of Randy, Trish, Karla, Laurin, Douglas, Philip, Christine, Claire, Kurtis, Christina, Emma, Mia Skylar, Jessica, Ben and Jackson.

In Loving Memory of Gilbert Moreau
Dec. 11, 1938 - Aug. 6, 2016
When evening shadows are falling
And I am sitting all alone
In my hand there comes a longing,
Wishing you were here at home.
In life I loved you dearly.
In death I love you still
For in my heart you hold a place
That no one else can fill.
You walk with me down quiet paths,
And speak through wind and rain,
For the wonderful gift of memory
Gives you back to me again.
I hold you close within my heart,
And there you will remain
To walk with me throughout my life,
Until we meet again.
Love, Diane

For us you did them all.
Thank you for the years you cared for us
And for the times we shared
You are in our hearts forever.
Love, Your Children and Grandchildren

Donald Nelson ---- August  09.2009
Today recalls the morning
Of a loved one gone to rest,
And those who think of him today
Are those who loved him best
The flowers we lay upon his grave
May wither & decay,
But the love for him that lies beneath
Will never fade away.
Lovingly remembered by;  Betty & Family

It's still so hard to believe and yet a community came together yesterday to morn, hug, laugh and cry with all the stories that surrounded a young light that once graced this property with her infectious energy. Jenna Lorente will be missed in this world but if there is anything that she left behind besides her brilliant smile and laugh, it was her kindness and love that touched all of our hearts. For that reason I would like to offer, for anyone who needs it in relation to healing from this, a way to move through the grief. Jenna loved to create and I would like to help, in memory of her, anyone who feels lost with no way to process. Come carve, paint, draw, print, sculpt, journal and play. Come alone or in a group, just connect with me and I will do my very best to make it happen in a timely manner. In over twenty years of business I have had many clients grieving from loss in their lives and Intuitive Art Therapy has helped and it is my intention for this community for as long as needed.

Those we love don’t go away,
they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard; but always near,

but at times it feels like it was yesterday.
You’re very likely looking down,
from heaven above.
Sending out days of sunshine,
and showers of love.
Fondly remembered by Cliff, Nancy, Doug, Bruce, Marlene, Courtney and Ethan.

I have you in my heart.
Love, Cindy

Gilbert Moreau 1938-2016
This would have been your 80th birthday.
To us, he has not gone away,
Nor has he travelled far,
Just entered God’s eternal home
And left the gate ajar.
Love Always,
Diane and Family

Jack Shanahan - August 14, 1929 – December 24, 2017

A year has passed since you left us...
We think of you with love each day,
The things you used to do and say,
It brings a smile and then a tear,
And a constant wish that you were here.
-Love from your Family

Kathryn Louise Elliott - Kennedy
April 21, 1974 - December 22, 2008
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.
Dearest Kathryn, You are Forever Loved and Eternally Missed by the Elliott and Kennedy families

God saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be,
So he closed his arms around you and whispered “Come to me!”
You did not deserve what you went through
And so he gave you rest.
God’s garden must be so beautiful
For he only takes the best.
We’ll meet again.
Sadly missed by your wife Clarine,
children Karen and Brian, Kim and Brian,
Chris and Corrine,
grandchildren Spencer & Laura, Emily, Taylor, Brooke, Hannah & Evan
and his furry friends Tucker & Disel.

LOFTUS, Marjorie – October 30, 2007
We often think of bygone days
When we were all together.
The family chain is broken now,
But memories will live forever.
Sadly missed along life’s way
Quietly remembered every day.
No longer in our life to share
But in our hearts, she’s always there.

In loving memory of George Sibbald - October.6, 1935 - September.15, 2017

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the
Earth and saw your tired faced.
He put his arms around you
 and lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting
rough and the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered,”Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home

Forever in our hearts and everlasting memories.
Love Sally Sibbald and Family

But no one knows the heartache,
As we turn and leave you there.

We have you in our hearts

Theresa Marie Sullivan November 9, 1960 - March 30, 2018 - It is with a profound sadness that we announce the passing of Theresa Sullivan on March 20, 2018 after a hard fought battle with cancer. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Hugo Bergen; children, Rebecca and Ryan; parents, Patrick and Bernadette Sullivan; brothers, Michael (Lesley) and Kevin, and her sister Mary (Peter). Also left to mourn her passing are the many members of her extended family.
Theresa was born in Port Credit, Ontario, and at the age of seven moved to Mount St. Louis, the place she called home. It remained special to her the rest of her days. After high school, she attended the University of Western Ontario and graduated as an occupational therapist. Once you got to know Theresa, you could see that therapy was in her DNA. She began her OT career in Vancouver where she ended up meeting the love of her life, Hugo (how lucky was he!!!). They became engaged in Vancouver and started their wonderful life together in New York City in Jan. 1989. It was an exciting three year adventure that gave their relationship a solid foundation of love and support for the years to come. While experiencing the excitement of NYC, Theresa dedicated herself to starting a career in education (teaching was also in her DNA, as many can tell you). She worked hard during the day and in her 'spare time' worked even harder to complete a Masters Degree in Health Education at Columbia University. It was during this time that her role in treating a young patient was featured in Readers Digest. In Jan. 1992, Theresa and Hugo started their life in Winnipeg. She initially worked at the HSC in the Occupational Therapy Dept. until the birth of their darling daughter Rebecca in 1993. Four years later, her family was completed when Ryan arrived. In 1994 she began teaching in the Dept. of Occupational Therapy within the School of Medical Rehabilitation. She truly took great pleasure in combining her love of OT with her love of teaching, which allowed her to pass on her knowledge, enthusiasm, and energy for the profession to future generations. This dynamism would lead to numerous teaching awards over the years, including the Saunderson Award for Excellence in Teaching (the top award for teaching at the U of M). She was also recently recognized  by  the Manitoba Society of OTs as the 'Most Inspiring Professor' for her dedication to the OT profession. Even as she entered her fifties, her enthusiasm for the profession continued unabated as she enrolled in a PhD program to further her research interests in therapy. It was with great sadness that she withdrew from her PhD program due to her declining health. Her career was marked with achievements both great and small and she helped the careers of countless students  as they progressed  through  the  program.  Her students appreciated her for her empathy, understanding, support, thoughtfulness, wisdom, and 'shoulder to cry on' as cited by her numerous nominations for teaching awards. Hers was a truly distinguished and remarkable career. Her dedication to her career paled in comparison to the love and dedication she had for her family. She supported Rebecca and Ryan throughout their academic and sports endeavours.  Throughout the years, Theresa was a constant source of strength, encouragement, and boundless love to Hugo, and their relationship grew stronger with each year. They simply loved each other and loved spending time together. Road trips were always a favorite time together. The summers were a time of travelling (both east and west) to see friends and family. Her love for her family was truly paramount.
As the children grew older and more independent, she found more time to devote to her hobbies of gardening and knitting. During warm spring days she loved nothing more than planting flowers and shrubs within her beloved garden. It was a real joy to walk in the yard and admire her efforts. During the winter months, the evenings became a time of knitting. Her sweaters and scarves (did she love scarves!) were works of art to be worn and enjoyed. Theresa was an incredibly warm, thoughtful, selfless, and caring partner, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. She will be missed. Thank you to the Gyne-Oncology team and chemo nurses at CancerCare. A burial service will be held at St. Louis Cemetery (Mount St. Louis Road West) at 1:00 pm on Saturday, May 26, 2018, with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to establish a student award in Theresa’s name at the College of Rehab Sciences at the University of Manitoba. Donations can be sent  payable to the University of Manitoba c/o   Susan  Vanstone,  College of Rehabilitation Sciences, R106-771 McDermot Ave. Winnipeg, MB R3E 0T6.

Man and a Fork
There was a young man who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given three months to live. So as he was getting his things 'in order,' he contacted his Priest and had him come to his house to discuss certain aspects of his final wishes.
He told him which songs he wanted sung at the service, what scriptures he would like read, and what outfit he wanted to be buried in. Everything was in order and the Priest was preparing to leave when the young man suddenly remembered something very important to him.
'There's one more thing,' he said excitedly..
'What's that?' came the Priest's reply.
'This is very important,' the young man continued.
'I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand.'
The Priest stood looking at the young man, not knowing quite what to say.             
That surprises you, doesn't it?' the young man asked.
'Well, to be honest, I'm puzzled by the request,' said the Priest.
The young man explained. 'My grandmother once told me this story, and from that time on I have always tried to pass along its message to those I love and those who are in need of encouragement. In all my years of attending socials and dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say,
'Keep your fork.' It was my favorite part because I knew that something better was coming .... like velvety chocolate cake or deep-dish apple pie. Something wonderful, and with substance!'
So, I just want people to see me there in that casket with a fork in my hand and I want them to wonder 'What's with the fork?'
Then I want you to tell them: 'Keep your fork .. the best is yet to come.' The Priest's eyes welled up with tears of joy as he hugged the young man good-bye. He knew this would be one of  the last times he would see him before his death.
But he also knew that the young man had a better grasp of heaven than he did. He had a better grasp of what heaven would be like than many people twice his age, with twice as much experience and knowledge.
He KNEW that something better was coming.
At the funeral people were walking by the young man's casket and they saw the suit he was wearing and the fork placed in his right hand. Over and over, the Priest heard the question, 'What's with the fork?' And over and over he smiled.
During his message, the Priest told the people of the conversation he had with the young man shortly before he died. He also told them about the fork and about what it symbolized to him.
He told the people how he could not stop thinking about the fork and told them that they probably would not be able to stop thinking about it either.
He was right. So the next time you reach down for your  fork let it remind you, ever so gently, that the best is yet to come.

The Last Prayer
In Memory of Alicja Rozanska Story by Danny Beaton www.dannybeaton.ca
   Woke up at midnight last month after sleeping four hours and was not sure if I had a vision or if I was thinking in my sleep or what, but I was having all these thoughts about my elders and who was praying with them and if they had said their last prayer.
   We all need to share, communicate, work, create and heal to survive; if we find love we are lucky and if we learn to pray, then we can give thanks like all the old cultures did in the old days. Of course we are an extension of our ancestors, we are an extension of our elders and loved ones. We are the past, present and future generations; we are the light, darkness, the sun, earth, air and water. My old uncle Robertjohn says it is the old elders who have taught us as children how to give thanksgiving, how to honor life and Mother Earth; our elders teach us everything has a spirit. Roberytjohn says everything is alive; if you are sitting on the moon looking down at Mother Earth, he says “alive or dead”.
   When our old elders gathered up and we all stood in a circle around the sacred fire every year, our prayers got stronger and our love got stronger, but our people were getting weak from the negativity around us and we tried to keep our way of life alive, but everything was out of balance in the world, from losing our natural diets to forgetting to maintain physical, mental, spiritual indigenous lifestyle.
   Robertjohn said the highest form of prayer is song. In the song is the melody, the harmony and the thought, the prayer. All the songs in the world have given so much love, joy, peace to the peoples of the world and their very spirit. Some songs are so healing we need to hear them over and over and over again. Some songs are sung every day, they are sung by the entire community, entire families, entire nations for respect, for peace, for harmony, maybe even for healing. Some songs are so powerful they are used for birth and crossing over. Some songs can be used for purification, cleaning of the mind, body and spirit. Some songs are for making happy, in giving thanks to Creation and Life and Life-giving forces. Rabbit Dance Song, Eagle Song, Fish Dance Song, songs that honor fish, birds, insects and animals bring us closer to our relations and our relatives. The songs are old, the songs are new, but they are songs that bring harmony, peace, humility, justice and unity. The song is a form of prayer, a form of respect, a form of healing. A song is from the heart, the song is from the spirit, the song can be with tears and laughter, peace and pain. Some of the most beautiful songs come from birds, animals, fish and insects, we just cannot hear some. The universe can be a place of prayer and song at times in Tibet, Mongolia, China, Africa, Greece, Turkey, Australia, Poland, Russia, America and the world. The world can be a breeding ground for peace, harmony, prayer, song and dance.
   When I woke from my dream, I thought who was praying with our elders. I thought of Leon Shenandoah, one of our most gentle Onondaga chiefs, who was chief of the chiefs, Tadodaho, a leader of his people and culture, someone raised in peace, power, righteousness, respect and harmony. Then I thought who was praying with Austin and Hilba Two Moons when they were dissidence of his grandfather who fought in Little Big Horn and Austin always treated me like a son, the way most of our elders treated us when we attended sacred gatherings and councils. Every year our Traditional Circle of Indian Elders and Youth/American Indian Institute would sponsor and organize our sacred councils somewhere in Canada or US, where a native community was in need of traditional native elders to help bring back their native ways and ceremonies with our help. Then I started thinking who is praying for my mom and is her apartment getting smudged and purified. I know Marcus and Priscilla Vigel had a strong community of Pueblo Culture and that their ceremonial life was strong among the families and people of New Mexico. They had two daughters, Margret and Vicky, who were like clan mothers keeping the family and community positive with prayers and good energy. Also I knew Tom Porter, our spiritual leader of the Mohawk people, was being looked after because he was always out in the community boosting people’s spirit with his wisdom and teachings of The Good Mind, of the respect needed for any family or community to find tranquillity, harmony, equality, justice and peace. When I think of the love and gentleness from Ann Jock for all Indian people and all people of the world and her own family with her husband Corn Planter, I realize there is hope in the world if such love can exist on the planet! Who taught us how to pray, who taught us how to give thanksgiving, who taught us how to purify ourselves. Priscilla used to say to me, Danny you pray for me and I will pray for you in the most beautiful way. It was like a blessing just to be talked to in that gentleness and peaceful manner.
   Our circle is still going, but it is not what it used to be. Our elders are being replaced by their children and it’s a new generation and not that it’s not a strong generation, but the ones who carried their fathers’ and grandfathers’ Sacred Pipes are a different breed, because you had to see the open space, freedom and cleanness of Mother Earth to know that power and quietness of 100 years ago, even the stories that were told two hundred years ago by their elders. I remember teachings twenty-five years ago: our elders said prepare yourself for what’s coming because everything is falling apart. Even when my partner/wife was diagnosed with cancer and I tried to save her, I learned that the trees were a nation to themselves and that the plants were a nation too, a part of Mother Earth and I prayed to them to help Alicja and I prayed to the Grandmother Moon to help Alicja, but then in the end I learned I had to give thanksgiving for all the years we had together and not ask for more.
   All of this stuff happening tells me how Sacred Life is, how beautiful life is all around us. Sure we can see destruction and the rape of Mother Earth by negative people and corporations, but there is natural beauty all around us, even gardens, forests, mountains and lakes to heal in and energize ourselves. Like Janice Longboat says, our teachers are all around us ready to teach, but we as people have to want to see, hear and feel the gifts that the Universe, our Great Creator has blessed us all with. Like Mac McCloud says, what Mac says has to be said, what Mac says is the truth. The way I see things is we need to give Thanksgiving ourselves, we need to be mindful of Creation and be thanksgiving people.
   When I was coming home from work the other day, I thought what if all the electricity shut down, what if all the hot water stopped getting hot, where would our energy come from, what's going to power the cities if things collapse. What happens if the oil and gas run out. This world or society is built on security and refreshments and we are forgetting the Sacredness of it all. Even though my wife is gone and even though my mom is so far away, I love them more than anything I know or can see or feel; only the moon and my grandchildren can take their place now. We are living in a fragile time with our oceans being destroyed so fast; with machinery nothing seems to be sacred any more in this world, but it all is. I am honored to be sitting here at my computer with all these memories and thoughts and I pray that we all find time to bring back the Sacred and Respect for Mother Earth and Creation and I give thanks for all those who have forgotten to be thankful.
   One of my best friends and elders crossed over not long ago: Wilmer Nadjiwon was 97 years old, a chief of his people for fourteen years. When we spent time together it was like hearing the legends of the past. Wilmer was a hunter and fisherman, he could feed his family and people and he did. Wilmer went to war for Canada like many other native people when we were at war. Our ancestors are as noble as the old days but wounded and broken from residential school like my uncle Wilmer. As long as I live I will smoke my pipe for Wilmer and my wife because we were happy all together, we did ceremony together, we worked for Mother Earth together and we ate together. We were the truest extended family. Wilmer was an Ojibway hero and leader. We cannot forget our elders! Wilmer was angry but he was gentle like many native people, he was gifted and blessed to be a Sacred Artist carving, writing and painting.   Chief Oren Lyons said our Sacred Pipes belong to the Creator. We pray for all people and give thanks to Creator and Mother Earth for all the gifts from The Great Mystery.

HARVEY, JAMES ANDREW -  James (Jim) Andrew Harvey, age 76, died peacefully at his home in Oro-Medonte. He left this earth to reunite with his dear parents Andrew and Gladys Harvey. Jim is survived by his loving sister Lorna Shaw, his 4 children, 10 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Jim had a true entrepreneurial spirit. He owned several businesses, but most enjoyed his years as a Tennis Court Contractor, working all across Ontario. Jim had many skills, most self-taught. He truly enjoyed sharing his knowledge and experience with others. He thrived on helping people, and fixing things. Jim always saw potential where others did not. He was a true outdoorsman – he loved cutting firewood and maintaining his farm.  His Massey Ferguson tractor was an extension of himself, and operating it was one of his greatest joys. Always with a joke or a memory at the ready, Jim was an exceptional story teller. He loved life, and had fun. Jim lived fearlessly, and stood up for what he believed. As an environmental activist, and determined protester of Site 41, he devoted much time advocating for the protection of our most precious resource; clean water.  Jim was one of a kind. He was well known in the Elmvale area as “Mr. Greenpeace”, and was easy to spot driving his truck that was customized with environmental and polar bear decals. Jim’s most significant accomplishment is the legacy he’s left his family, one of selflessness, resilience, a strong work ethic, and a true zest for life. Jim will be dearly missed by the many friends and family members who were blessed to have known and loved him. His memory will be cherished always by the light of his life, his great granddaughter Journey – a.k.a. “Stormy”. Cremation has taken place.

LOFTUS, Marjorie – October 30, 2007
We often think of bygone days
When we were all together.
The family chain is broken now,
But memories will live forever.
Sadly missed along life’s way
Quietly remembered every day.
No longer in our life to share
But in our hearts, she’s always there.
She sleeps in God’s beautiful garden,
In sunshine of perfect peace;
We miss her, oh how much,
But realize God knew best.
He let us have her many years,
Then gently bade her rest.
Lovingly remembered by the family.

Reynolds  -  In loving memory of a husband, father, grandfather Elden July 1928 - 2014

Another year has come and gone
And heartaches, tears and memory keep them near.
Those we have loved don’t go away.
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, unheard, still missed,
Still loved and very dear.
Sincerely Fran and children,
Barb, Russell, Dennis, Wanda and their families

Memoriam - Amy Johnston – Cobbett (15 years without you.)
They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason, Will change the way I feel,
For no-one knows the heartache, That lies behind our smiles,
No-one knows how many times, We have broken down and cried,
We want to tell you something, So there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of, But so hard to be without.
Love Mom, Dad, Angie, Rick, Nan, Kevin, Angela, Greg, Ryan, Nicole and Melissa

Wayne Thompson - April 29, 1946 - July 20, 2004
As time goes by another year
Memories keep you ever near
Silent thoughts of times together
Hold memories that will last forever
Gone but not forgotten, Marie

MORRISON, Mabel
We can’t have old days back
When we were all together.
But secret tears and loving thoughts
Will be with us forever.
In loving memory from the Mino and Morrison Families

MOREAU, Gilbert August 6th, 2016
Dear Dad and Poppy,
You walk with us
Down quiet paths
And speak through the wind and rain.
For the wonderful gift of memory
Gives you back to us again.
We love and miss you,
Andrew, Jenny, Teagan & Lochlyn
Shelley, Taylor, Matt & Danielle
