BISSON: Barbara Anne of Kissimmee Formerly of Sudbury, Ontario

Posted by on May 31, 2017

On September 10, 1941, Kay and Joe O’Shaughnessy’s second daughter, Barbara Anne, entered the world too early. In fact, she was born just 11 months after their first-born, Marilyn. The doctor wrapped her up and put her into a bread pan, which he set on the open oven door to keep her warm, as was commonplace with home births in the 1940s. The tiny baby was not expected to survive, but survive, she did.
Barbara always knew she wanted to became a nurse. She worked hard, saved her money, and put herself through nursing school. She then accepted a position at Sudbury General Hospital (Sudbury, Ontario), where she worked for over two decades before she and her family moved briefly to Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, and then to sunny Kissimmee, Florida. Barb loved living in Florida and she took pride in her little house and her garden. She also continued nursing for another 20-plus years. “Endo Barb” helped open the endocscopy unit at Kissimmee Memorial Hospital, which later became Florida Hospital Kissimmee.
It wasn’t until her sixth cancer diagnosis caused her to retire that Barb ended her nursing career. Barb was not expected to live more than six months at that time; she fooled the doctors once again, and survived for 13 more years until her 7th cancer diagnosis, followed by a fall during which she broke her hip. She died peacefully on March 28th, 2017, where she spent a great deal of her life — in an operating room.
Barbara raised two wonderful, loving daughters: Donna Baillie (Kissimmee, FL) and Wendy Bisson (Canton, OH); and a third daughter, Karen Vincent (British Columbia, Canada). Barb adored her grandchildren: John Bisson (friend Maggie), Emily Baillie, Christopher Baillie, and Kathleen Petro; and she cherished the little time she had with granddaughters Allyssa, Brandi and Celina Vincent before they were taken away from her. She will also be missed by her “adopted” daughter Angela Casera, grandchildren Ashleigh Diaz, Kali Rybinski and Adrienne Cruz and great-granddaughter Amber. Barb also cherished her time with her faithful furry companion, Tiki.
Predeceased by her adored parents Kathleen and Joseph O’Shaughnessy; her older sister and best friend Marilyn French; and her brothers-in-law Keith Millington and Brian French, Barb is also survived by her younger sister Joanne Evraire (husband Jim) of Deep River, Ontario; her “baby” brother Donald O’Shaughnessy (wife Collette) of Kentucky; brothers-in-law Jim (wife Jeanette) of Sudbury, Ontario and Frank Bisson (Mary Jane, predeceased) of Elliot Lake, Ontario; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins across Canada.
Special thanks to Barb’s good friend James Weller (“Pops” to us) for being there for all of us over the past several years and treating mom better than our father ever did; neighbor and dear friend Kay Sellers for her friendship; and to Donna Chase, who had worked with mom at Florida Hospital Kissimmee, for being an amazing friend, especially these last few months. Thanks, too, to all the nursing staff at St Cloud Hospital for their kindness.

MASSON: Jack ( John ) of Toronto

JOHN “JACK” MASSON (May 25, 1923- August 26, 2016) proudly served overseas in WWII in the RCAF Squadron 437, as a Grade A Aircraft Mechanic. After the War, Jack worked 40+ years for the Federal Government. Jack suffered a serious fall that led to his death on August 26, 2016, at age 93.
Dearly missed by his daughter Christine and predeceased by his daughter Leslie (2003). In 2006 his beloved wife June was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Married 66 years but sadly separated the past 3 years due to not being accepted into the same nursing home. Jack was full of adventure, kind and had a passion for nature, dancing and listening to Jazz. His smile and great laughter would light up a room with his sense of humour even during the hardest of times. His biggest pet peeve was most people mispronounced his last name. It is Masson not Mason! A wonderful father, and best friend to his daughter Christine.

LOCKHART: E. Earl of Toronto Formerly of MacTier

Posted by on May 31, 2017

images-4

E. (Elmer) Earl Lockhart (who always went by his middle name) passed away on Sunday, January 8, 2017 in his city of residence, Toronto, Ontario. He was 86, just two weeks shy of his 87th birthday.

He passed in his sleep of sudden cardiac arrest after a prolonged period of illness due to diabetes, Alzheimer’s/dementia and congestive heart failure.

Mr. Lockhart is survived by his wife of close to 60 years Helen Lockhart (nee O’Connell) of Toronto, his daughter Laurie Lockhart of Toronto, his son Joseph Lockhart of Guelph, ON, four Lockhart grandchildren, Nathaniel (Toronto), Evan (Powell River, BC), Claire and Connor (Kitchener, ON), five brothers (all in Ontario), Bob of Ajax, Arnold of Bowmanville, Connie of Oshawa, Brian of Renfrew and Tim of Spanish and four sisters (all in Ontario), Doreen (Mrs. Russell Johnston) of Pickering, Joyce (Mrs. Albert Chisholm) of Chelmsford, Colleen (Mrs. Glen Tait) of Cannington and Heather (Mrs. James Mahon) of MacTier. He was predeceased by sister Linda (Mrs. James Mahon) of MacTier on July 30, 2011, and three infant brothers, Freddie in November 1929, Ronnie in September 1933 and baby boy in 1946 (whose new ground marker, acknowledging all three children titled LOCKHART, was commissioned and put in place by Earl in Foot’s Bay Cemetery in Ontario in 2008).

Earl Lockhart was born on January 21, 1930 in MacTier, Ontario, Canada. He was the oldest child of hard working parents Joseph Samuel Lockhart and Eliza Gertrude Lockhart (nee Watkinson). His father was an engineer for Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) and his mother was a homemaker and postal carrier, both working out of MacTier.

Mr. Lockhart struck out on his own (as to spare his parents of another mouth to feed) at an early age, first going to live with his Aunt Ruby Cochrane (on his father’s side) in the east end of Toronto.
He eventually met Helen and they were married on November 16, 1957 in Toronto, and in 1961 they settled and raised their family in a house in the area of Toronto called Weston (where they lived until his passing and where Helen still lives today).

He worked hard and provided for his family by working at Canadian National Railway (CN) until he took an early retirement in September 1989 (he worked at CN since November 1951). Through the years he was active in many additional pursuits such as, since 1957, serving in the Canadian Army reserves (headquartered out of Toronto’s Denison Armoury at 3621 Dufferin Street, north of Highway 401) for 28 years (receiving rank of Warrant Officer, CD) and was a continuous member of the Royal Canadian Legion for 53 years (receiving his 50-year pin in September 2015). He also took an interest in auctioneering (earning a certificate) and of course boating (was a member of the power squadron).

His love for his native Muskoka however, never left him (MacTier was always called “up home”), and his Irish ancestry was a source of pride and the reason why in his retirement he spent every spring and summer in his beloved community of Severn Bridge (just south of Gravenhurst), Ontario. This is the area where his great-grandfather Joseph Lockhart lived in when he emigrated to Canada from Ireland (1850s) and where you can find his great-grandfather’s gravestone today in Symington Cemetery on Highway 11 at Kilworthy Road, Severn Bridge.

There will be a memorial service for Earl Lockhart on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at Trinity United Church in Gravenhurst, Ontario. Later in June, as per Earl’s wishes, there will be a private interment of his ashes in Symington Cemetery in the grave of his Irish great-grandfather.

KIPNIS: Pam of Kamloops, BC Formerly of St. John's, NL

Posted by on May 11, 2017

images-4

Pam Kipnis was born in Salford, Manchester, England on October 11th, 1924. She left this world on March 10th, 2017, at Kamloops, BC at the age of 92. During WWII, she worked as a secretary and never lost her sharp eye for grammar and blazing speed on a typewriter. Pam Linder met Norman Kipnis during WWII in London, England. They married in London and, like many war brides, she followed him to Montreal after the war, crossing the Atlantic by herself. Pam worked and supported Norman while he completed high school and earned an engineering degree from McGill University.
They had their first child, Evan (Michele) while living in Atikokan, Northern Ontario but, Pam was ever adventurous so they studied Spanish together and Norman took a job in Mexico. They crossed into Mexico in 1956 when Pam was 8 months pregnant with Wendy (Nick); two years later Kit (Dana) was her best Mother’s Day gift ever. During their time in Mexico, Pam mastered Mexican cuisine, grew all kinds of things in her gardens, learned to give injections in case of snake bite, how to milk a cow, pasteurize the milk and make homemade ice cream. She even taught French at a local college for a time.
In 1965, they returned to Canada, eventually settling in St. John’s, NL. In St. John’s, Pam worked outside the home at several occupations and made many good friends. She was a secretary in the Folklore Department at MUN, an office manager at Planned Parenthood, a typesetter for Breakwater Books, and lastly she founded and helped operate 3F (Fun and Fitness after Fifty) out of the St. John’s Aquarena for many happy years. Pam and Norman were also in on the creation of the Open Group theater company, with Pam bringing her make-up talents to a number of productions. All the while, Pam invested countless volunteer hours supporting her children in their studies, swimming (competitive and synchro), and water polo.
Pam was a lifelong athlete: track and field hockey in her youth; tennis, golf, curling, kayaking, windsurfing and swimming were amongst her athletic pursuits later in life. She also loved square dancing and became a teacher and accomplished caller.
An avid learner, Pam was always ready to embrace new technology. She kept in touch with her extensive circle of friends and family via e-mail. Pam found every opportunity to practice and keep up her Spanish.
In retirement, Pam and Norman followed their grandchildren (Aiden, Chloe & Timo) to live in Kamloops, BC. Shortly afterwards, more grandchildren arrived – Jonah & Bryn in Kelowna and Zev & Gabe in St. John’s, NL . She was an avid attendee at her grandchildren’s birthday parties and events. She loved long walks with the family dogs. Pam always, always put family first and loved to laugh with her extended family.
The grandchildren knew they could always count on Pam for sugary cereal, wagon wheels, hot chocolate, cheese slices, cheez whiz – and a sympathetic ear. She was a mum to her grandchildren when their mum was not home.
Pam carefully cultivated a bower of flowers on the upper balcony of their Kamloops townhouse and a jungle of tomato vines on the lower balcony, keeping the Kamloops family supplied with fresh tomatoes.
Pam was small, grey (later white) haired and – we joked – tough. She could always be counted upon; nobody loved so unconditionally. We will all miss our Pam, but we are grateful to have had her indomitable presence with us for so long.
Predeceased by her husband Norman, parents Sam and Charlotte Linder, step-father Herman Horowitz, brothers Lewis and Jack, and little sister Joan Wexler; Pam will be well remembered by her sister-in-law and dear friend Lola Ladin, nephew Sam Linder (Cindy), children and grandchildren and the extended Kipnis clan. Kit, Wendy, and Evan thank all the staff at Ridgeview Lodge in Kamloops for their excellent care of Pam during her last chapter and extend a heartfelt thank you to family and friends who all enriched Pam’s life.
