FERGUSON,, Virginia Louise Dawson - Roanoke Times

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Boy Howdy). Jenny Lou graduated from Cornet School of Business and became an Executive Secretary to Don Rowe, Sr. and Don Rowe, Jr. CEOs of Rowe Furniture Manufacturers. She moved to the Norfolk and Western Railway Company where she was personal secretary to David A. Cox, Director of Real Estate, and Industrial Development. After the N & W merger with Southern Railroad, Jenny Lou returned to school at National Business College where she earned an Associate Degree in Court Reporting and was a self-employed Court Reporter. She was top-notch stenographer with a mastery of short hand. She could make a typewriter smoke and was a whiz with the Court Reporter shorthand machine. She was a perfectionist and master of grammar. She had the most beautiful handwriting ever. People looked forward to receiving her beautifully addressed Christmas cards. Jenny Lou loved Budweiser and Hank Williams taken together. After deciding she had enjoyed enough beer for a lifetime, she discovered Delbert McClinton, Jimmy Fortune, Linda and Robin Williams and The Irish Tenors. A voracious reader, a trait learned from her mother who was the Town of Salem Librarian, she took her time reading and rereading passages in a book savoring every word. Left heartbroken by her passing are her husband, Warren; children, Scottie (Bill), and Jeb (Rori) and Sister Betsy who she loved so very much. She is also survived by her granddaughter, Katie and great granddaughters, Scarlett and Kennedy. Other survivors are her sister, Becky, and "favorite cousins" Mary Page Stinnett and John Kyle Shewey, along with a number of other relatives. Left to share in the loss are her dear lifelong, faithful friends, Mary Louise Scarborough and Mary Ed Williams, her friends of 50+ years, Byron and Nancy Yost and just about anybody who was lucky enough to come in contact with her. The family would also like to thank Dr. Souha Khawam for her many years of kind, exceptional care for Jenny Lou. An animal lover, Jenny Lou used to ride her horse, Silver all over Salem in her teen years. Later she and Warren had goats, chickens, a raccoon and the World's neatest Bassett Hounds, Tank and Tinker. If you would care to, I am sure a donation to Angels of Assisi, 415 Campbell Avenue, SW, Roanoke, Virginia 24016 would be appreciated by her. A private memorial in memory of one of God's special people will be held at a later date.

She could have 15 balls in the air and they were all well served,” said Dan Dignard, a long-time trustee who served with Mrs. Szeman for 14 years on the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board. “I couldn’t keep up with her.”A lifelong resident of Brantford who had a passion for helping, Mrs. Szeman died on May 31. She was 75. An active member of St. Mary’s Church, Mrs. Szeman was a classroom teacher, a consultant, an elementary school principal in the city, and a superintendent of education in Oxford County and the amalgamated London District Catholic School Board.She was active in the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association and the Ontario Catholic Supervisory Officers’ Association and was past president of the Brant branch of the Retired Teachers of Ontario. As well, she served on the provincial executive of the organization.Mrs. Szeman’s time as a trustee for the local Catholic school board included six years as chair.“I had the privilege of working with June when she was a trustee,” said board chair Rick Petrella. “We continually saw evidence of her commitment to Catholic education and the people she served. Whether it was taking the lead on large initiatives like the Canadian Catholic School Trustees’ Association AGM or quietly providing her support f...

Masons display more than 150 years of history - Simcoe Reformer

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Anderson made the comments during an open house held at Lodge 113 on Saturday. The open house gave people an opportunity to learn more about the masons, their connection to Waterford and Norfolk.Originally from Perthshire, Scotland, Wilson came to Canada in 1832 and settled in Simcoe. He was the originator of the masons in Ontario. While masonic lodges existed back in the 1800s, they were ruled by the Grand Lodge in England. It was Wilson who thought lodges in Canada should rule themselves.By 1855, Ontario’s masons had their first governing body and Wilson was the first grand master.Wilson took on a lot of roles in the community including lawyer and reeve and also published a newspaper, Anderson said.When Wilson died in 1875, more than 1,000 masons from across the province came to Simcoe for the funeral.“He was an exceptional person from Simcoe who was a mover and shaker and a great Mason,” a note on the chair said.Wilson Lodge 113 celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2009 and has been meeting at its home on Alice Street, Waterford since 1890. The lodge is one of the oldest in Ontario and continues to contribute to the community.“The lodge does a lot in the community but it’s all done quietly,” Anderson said.The open house attracted a few curious visitors including Bev Hicks and Helen Smith. They were there to see if Anderson could shed light on an old black and white men’s fraternity photo.Anderson couldn’t help them – it was a photograph of men who belonged to an Odd Fellows Lodge — but the three still enjoyed a lengthy conversation about local history.Wayne Turvey, of Villa Nova, also visited Lodge 113 during the open house.He was particularly interested in the photographs of the lodge members dating back to the 1...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
