Doreen Goddard

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and friend, Doreen Goddard, on Wednesday, December 11, 2002 at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg.

Doreen was born to Baden and Merle Cook on April 29, 1942 in Fort William Ontario. From there the family moved to Kenora where they lived on Mascott Ave. for many years.On October 26, 1963 Doreen married her soul mate Bev Goddard, whom she devoted her life to till the very end. Beside her husband, Doreen lived for her children Tammy, Kevin, Lyle and Crystal.

Doreen was predeceased by her husband Bev on October 10, 2002, her parents Baden and Merle Cook, her father and mother-in-law Walter and Florrie Goddard as well as uncles aunts and friends.

Doreen in her sixty years touched many lives. They included her children Tammy Goddard (Kenora), Kevin Goddard (Kenora), Lyle Goddard and special friend Karla (Grande Prairie), Crystal and very special son-in-law Martin Page (Kenora). Doreen is also survived by sister Pat Netly (Ken) of Coombs B.C., Don and Val Cook, Lillian Crespeigne (Barry) and Linda and Don Boucha all of Kenora and a sister-in-law Eleanor Haire (Murray) of Victoria B.C. as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Doreen loved children and it showed. She had three grandchildren whom adored her. They are Morgan Goddard (Kenora), William and Micheala Goddard (Grande Prairie). Doreen also leaves behind many children she picked up along the way whether through her babysitting or her children. They will all fondly remember her as 'Mamma G'.

Besides her love for her children Doreen loved animals. This showed through the years with the many animals the family acquired. Harley, Magnum and Max will miss her dearly.

Doreen worked at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital in the kitchen until she decided at home with her children is where she wanted to be. For many years she babysat children of all ages, there was always a new face coming through the door. It did not take long for them to become part of the family. As her children grew she tried to get back into the work force again. For many years she worked for Michael Bradbury in his many ventures including the curling club, West Husky and the Golf Course. Wherever he was he would find her a job.

Doreen was a member of the Kenora Legion Branch #12 as well as the Ladies Auxiliary. She enjoyed her time there very much, making many friends along the way. Beyond her family she leaves behind her very close friends Cindy and Ernie Sinclair, Leona and Bill Hawrsh, Cecil and Carol Lefevre, Kathryn Smolak, Eleanor Wright, Bob and Judy Lee and too many more to name.

Funeral Services to celebrate Doreen's life will be held at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday December 17, 2002 at the Kenora Community Funeral Home with Captains Val and Gloria Redner officiating. Interment to follow at Lake of the Woods Cemetery.

by Peggie Bouse

We go through life so often
Not stopping to enjoy the day
And we take each one for granted
As we travel on our way

We never stop to measure
Anything we might just miss,
But if the wind should blow by softly
You'll feel an Angel's Kiss.

A kiss that is sent from Heaven
A kiss from up above
A kiss that is very special
From someone that you love.

For in your pain and sorrow
An Angel's Kiss will help you through
This kiss is very private
For it is meant for only you.

So when your hearts are heavy
And filled with tears and pain
And no one can console you
Remember once again....

About the ones you grieve for
Because you sadly miss
And the gentle breeze you took for granted
Was just .....'AN ANGEL'S KISS'

Daphne Shirley Schwartz

Daphne Schwartz, beloved wife of Arthur, passed away suddenly at home on Sunday, December 8th, 2002.

She is survived by her husband of fifty-four years, her children Barton (mollie McVey), Brent (Kathy), Ainsley Williams (Dan), Alyson (Allan Baumbick), Blair, and grandchildren Andrea, Bradley Taylor, Matthew, Amanda, Jake and several nieces and nephews. Her children and grandchildren were most important in her life.

Daphne was pre-deceased by her parents, John and Catherine Wolfe, her sisters Catherine Bell (Henry), Edythe Reeve (Reg), and her brother John (Anne), who was killed in Italy in World War II.

Daphne received her education in Kenora and entered the work force there. That is where she met Arthur. They were married in 1948. Following her marriage, Daphne lived in Kenora, Winnipeg and other centres. She was always supportive of the many career moves they made. While they travelled extensively throughout Canada, the United States and Europe, for her there was no other place equal to the Lake of the Woods.

During the last few years of her life, when she was not able to play golf, swim, fish or travel on the lake as much as she would have liked, she derived comfort, satisfaction and enjoyment from the vantage point of the living room of the family cottage on Coney Island looking out, in her words "the best scenery in the world". She was able to check the weather, the traffic on the lake, the activities of familiar and unfamiliar boats, and the numerous ducks and humming birds, which she insisted had to be adequately fed.

Her love for nature, all animals, as well as her knowledge of trees and flowers was well known. She attributed much of this knowledge to the teaching technique of a primary school teacher. Her special friend for the last nine years, her collie dog "Jessie" will miss the love and attention which was frequently sought and received from Daphne every day.

Daphne had a warm, outgoing manner, and could quickly get a response and, generally a smile or laugh, even from a new acquaintance. It was said by some that she could probably make a sphinx talk.

She made numerous friends in various parts of the country and maintained contact with many of them up to the end. Her telephone was an important aide in her daily routine. Scrabble games with sister-in-law Irma could go on for hours. Meal time and other less important functions could be delayed until the game was finished.

For many years Daphne enjoyed playing golf and, when she could no longer play, she followed the sport closely on T.V. She was interested in arts, crafts and painting. She was well known for her enthusiastic collection of recipes and cook books. She especially enjoyed her wonderful collection of old cook books. Passing by an auction or garage sale and not stopping was unforgivable to her.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Cyril Woolfe, her family physician Dr. R. Mehta, Dr. A. Maksymiuk, Nurse Mona Wilfer and all the staff at Cancer Care for their warm, caring and

considerate attention over the past seven months.

A reception to celebrate her life will be held at the Neil Bardal Inc., 984 Portage Ave, Aubrey St. Entrance, Winnipeg, MB, Saturday, December 14th at 1:00 p.m. In accordance with Daphne's wishes, cremation has taken place. Interment at a later date in the family plot in Lake of the Woods Cemetery.

If friends so wish, donations to the Lake of the Woods Hospital Foundation "Picture of Life Campaign", Kenora, ON, P9N 3W7 would be appreciated.

Timothy George Gatrell

A wonderful kind hearted spirit has been set free, our father, brother and friend, TIMOTHY GEORGE GATRELL, left our world on Friday, December 6, 2002 while at Health Sciences Centre, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Dad faced many health issues over the last few years but through it all, his quick wit and timely remarks often replaced our tears with laughter. Dad was not one to have people fussing over him and was truly amazed by the people who took the time to visit him during his recent stay in the hospital.

For many years Dad was actively involved with Alcoholics Anonymous and his family wishes to acknowledge the support, caring and concern of his fellow group members.

Dad's passion for outdoor activities was one he shared with his family. This past summer Cara and Andrew spent many rewarding hours fishing, golfing and quadding ("mudding") with their Dad during his many visits to Ear Falls.

A special thank you to Dad's close friend, Joe Percy, who helped Dad take part in the yearly fall hunt. It is with great pride that Dad showed us the results of his labours.

We will always remember Tim for his special gift in connecting with children. The love in his heart extended from his own children to all children who blessed his presence.

Dad spent his early work years employed by Ross Johnson Surveying. Opportunity to enhance his surveying skills came through Commonwealth Construction during the TMP Project at the Kenora Mill, the technical surveying required for placement of machinery and equipment served him well during the Mill expansion project in Fort Frances and later during the construction of Voyageur Panel in Dinorwic. In 1996 Tim began apprenticing as a Millwright enjoying the new challenges the training brought him, sadly health issues forced him from his trade in 1998.

Deeply saddened by his passing are his children Cara (Bear) and Andrew as well as his long time friend and partner Donna Belisle. Tim is survived by sisters Val Trent (Herb), Donna Lajeunesse (Dave) and Heather Ivey (Bill), nieces and nephews, Justin, Jordan & Jeff Trent, Danielle and Denton Lajeunesse and Raelyn and Aaron Ivey. Also saddened by Tim's passing is friend and mother of his children Wendy Gatrell.

Surviving aunts and uncles are Frank & Edie Gatrell, George Gwilliam, Elsie & Murray Patrick, Winnifred and Vince Reidy, Wilfred & Linda Gatrell, Stan Gatrell, Janet & Laverne Maurer, Kathy & Tom Cooligan, Jim & Donna Stover, bill & Donna Stover and Evelyn Gatrell.

Predeceasing Tim were his Dad Andy (Sept 2002) and Mom Evelyn (Oct 1986).

Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday, December 11, 2002 at 1:00 p.m. at Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre with Captains Val & Gloria Redner officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of one's choice would be appreciated by the family.
