MacKimmie Funeral Home closing after 157 years in business - The Review NewspaperThursday, December 14, 2017
Funeral Home has been serving a predominantly English-speaking clientele in the Lachute region, extending west through the Arundel, Weir, Harrington region to clients as far away as Gatineau and Hull.Richard and Bonnie’s childhood included being around the funeral home. Richard remembers going on the road at eight or nine years of age to help set up graves. At the age of 10, 11, or 12, he remembers being present for removals from homes.Although young, he says that this was just part of life in his family.“People died at home and we would go to a home when someone had passed away. Times have changed and these days, more often than not when someone dies at home, an ambulance is called in order to transport the person to a hospital first,” Richard said.“I would be at the funeral home and the embalmer would arrive and say hello and I would say hello and that was just the way things were for us,” Richard said.Looking ahead, Richard says that the family will retain the headstone business from an office at the rear of the funeral home building.Pre-arranged funerals will be transferred to Salon Funéraire Roland Menard. Richard says that business, too, is a family-owned business and that he has known Roland Menard since they attended school together. Roland Menard grew up in the trade also and came into the business in the same manner as Richard did.MacKimmie Funeral Home is located at 660 rue Principale in Lachute. While the telephone number and business entity will exist for some time, the business will close at the end of 2017.Louise SprouleLouise Sproule has been the publisher of The Review since 1992.

London-area dairy farm worker Carl Gregg remembered as generous family man - London Free PressWednesday, March 1, 2017
Farms on the outskirts of London.Gregg lived less than a kilometre away from the London-area dairy farm, where he’d worked for the last 16 years.The 58 year old was working alone at the Woodhull Road farm last Tuesday when he fell through an opening into a manure pit, according to Ontario’s Labour Ministry, which is now probing Gregg’s death.Longtime friend Michael Appleton remembers the time he needed to return to New Brunswick to attend his grandmother’s funeral.After asking Gregg for help, Appleton said his friend arrived within an hour ready to make the 1,200-kilometre drive.Gregg visited with family — his two sisters live in New Brunswick — while Appleton spent three days with his grieving relatives.“And then he picked me up and drove me all the way back without even a hesitation,” said Appleton.An avid outdoors person who loved cruising through the country, Gregg always stayed close to his family despite the distance separating them.His five nieces and two nephews held a special place in his heart.“He was known as the ‘popular’ uncle. He always found a way to make it home for his nieces and nephews graduations and any special visits back home included shopping trips with them, buying whatever they wanted,” said his obituary.Gregg had a tradition when returning to his hometown: He’d always order pizza and Sussex Golden Ginger Ale for his family to share.Appleton, who last saw Gregg before Christmas, said his friend donated turkeys to the Salvatio...
The Great Western, Sarah Bowman, the Valley and more - Valley morning StarFriday, February 17, 2017
I’ll beat you to death.’ The rumor turned out to be untrue as Taylor was victorious.” At his time she began to carry the sobriquet “Great Western.” The name was borrowed from an oak-hulled side wheeler steamship that made its maiden voyage from England to America in 1838. At that time it was the largest steamship afloat in the world.Following the overall United States victory in the war, American military forces would remain in parts of Mexico until July 1848. Before this period Sarah had opened a hotel in Saltillo, Mexico. It was named the American House. It housed both a saloon and a brothel.Following the American evacuation of Mexico Sarah returned to the United States but not without the usual encumbrances.According to the Handbook of Texas “... in July 1848 she asked to join a column of dragoons that had been ordered to California. By this time her husband was probably dead, and she was told that only married women could march with the army. Undaunted, she rode a donkey along the line of men asking, ‘Who wants a wife with fifteen thousand dollars and the biggest leg in Mexico? Come, my beauties, don’t all speak at once. Who is the lucky man?”Another account of this incident goes that when reminded that she needed a husband in the dragoons to continue onward with the unit, she gave a military salute and replied, “All right, Major, I’ll marry the whole squadron and you thrown in but what I go along.” She rode along the front of the line and made an offer that one soldier finally took her up on, if they could find a clergyman to “tie the knot.” “Bring your blanket to my tent tonight and I will learn you to tie a knot that will satisfy you, I reckon,” she said.After some hesitation a dragoon named Davis, probably David E. Davis, stepped forward, and the Great Western once again marched with the army.” Her union to Davis lasted a few short months. She eventually went to Franklin, Texas, which was later to be renamed El Paso. Once here she, in 1849, briefly established a hotel and restaurant catering to the Forty-Niners flooding to the gold fields of California.It was said that hers was the first business in the town to be run by a female. She was also the first Anglo woman in town as well as the first brothel madam. Then, with another man, possibly 38 year old New Mexico-born Juan Duran, she went to Socorro, New Mexico, as evidenced by the December 31,1850 census (Sarah had reverted to her first husband’s name apparently, listed as “Sarah Bourgette”). She lists her birthplace as Tennessee and her age at 33. Also listed with them are five young girls, all Illinois born, which some believe might have been frontier orphans.The Skinner girls were Caroline 16, Nancy 9, Fanny 8, Diane 7, and Margaret 2. Sarah’s marital escapades were not yet over. She soon married another soldier, Albert J. Bowman, who was German-born and an upholsterer by training. He was also several years younger than she. When he was transferred to Socorro, New Mexico, Sarah leased her hotel to the army and moved with her new husband. Upon his discharge in November 1852 the couple moved back to Fort Yuma, Arizona where gold had recently been discovered.Here Sarah worked in the hospital and opened a restaurant. In 1856 she traveled to Fort Buchanan to set up a hotel ten miles below the fort. She then returned to Fort Yuma by 1861.Havin...

Canadian Forces dealing with 17 streptococcal infection cases at recruit school in Quebec - Ottawa CitizenSaturday, March 2, 2019
The Canadian military is dealing with 17 cases of streptococcal infection at its recruit facilities in Saint-Jean, Quebec, the second such outbreak in less than a year.The cases of Group A Streptococcus bacterial infection, also called GAS, were identified among the roughly 1,500 recruits at Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School.

There have been no serious cases of GAS infection and no hospitalized cases.In early April, Postmedia reported that more than 1,800 military personnel had been given antibiotics after an outbreak of streptococcal infections at the same military facility. Six recruits from the Saint-Jean Garrison were hospitalized. Of those there was one confirmed invasive Group A Streptococcal (GAS) case and one probable invasive GAS case, according to the Department of National Defence.The garrison, located in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., is the basic training base for recruits in the Canadian Forces.Smyth said antibiotics are being provided ...
Body found in Mexico probably that of Christine St-Onge, SQ says - Montreal GazetteSaturday, March 2, 2019
Laval resident Christine St-Onge, 41, who went missing in Mexico on Dec. 5, 2018.
The body of a woman believed to be that of a Quebecer missing in Mexico for more than a week was found near a hotel in Los Cabos, provincial police said on Thursday.Laval's Christine St-Onge, 41, had been missing since Dec. 4.Sgt. Claude Denis, a spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec, said although an autopsy was already performed in Mexico, a second autopsy will have to be done when the body returns to Quebec to determine the cause of death and to formally identify the body.Denis said investigators had already informed St-Onge's family of the discovery.Denis said the investigation is complicated because SQ investigators are far from where the body was found. An RCMP liaison officer is now on site, which will make it easier to communicate with local authorities, he said. The RCMP will have to positively identify the body and then arrange for it to be repatriated.BCS Noticias, a Mexican news website, quoted local police as saying it appeared the woman had died as a result of cranial trauma and that blood stains had been found in the hotel room where she was staying. They estimated she had been dead for at least five days.RelatedThe woman's body, which appears to bear marks of violence, was found near the hotel where St-Onge had been vacationing since Nov. 29 with a male co...
