Karolee Gail Barber

Unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 13th, Karolee Gail Barber passed away at the age of 63 years.

Predeceased by her parents Marjorie and Hugh (Bus) Barber. Left to cherish her memory; her brother Stuart (Sue) Barber, and her niece Holly (Bill) Isfeld, special great niece Tianna and great nephew Liam and brand new great niece Mckenna born May 12th, all of Kenora, and her niece Tara Barber of Thunder Bay, ON. Also surviving are numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins and her dearest life-long friend Lorna (Minor) Whyte.

Karolee's greatest pride & joy were her "children" - giving them absolute and unconditional love. What happiness they brought to her and she to them. They will forever treasure her amazing talent as a singer and her wonderful storytelling skills. "Annie" her black lab will miss her lots.

Karolee was a highly committed and a fiercely independent woman. Her nieces Holly and Tara were blessed by her very generous spirit, having experienced travel and adventures to many locales. She was an avid curler and golfer in her youth. She loved to read and took great pleasure tending to her gardens.

She was a dedicated employee holding a variety of positions. In the early years she worked at Ontario Minnesota Pulp & Paper Co., followed by Confederation College and for the past twenty-five years at Human Resources Development Canada, earning respect and making numerous friendships throughout her career. She retired in the year 2002. Upon completion of her employment Karolee was honored with a 25 year Service Award from the Government of Canada. She was also acknowledged by her Majesty the Queen with the Golden Jubilee Medal.

In keeping with Karolee's wishes cremation has taken place and no service is to be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Heart & Stroke Fund or the Hospital Scan Fund.

Charles Acree

June 9, 1956-June 15, 2003

Charles (Chuck) with his beloved wife Rose (nee Bordynuik) at his side passed away peacefully on June 15, 2003 at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital, at the age of 47, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Chuck will be sadly missed by his wife Rose and the joy in his life, daughters Amy age 11 and Amber age 10.

Also left to mourn his loss are his parents Jack and Pearl Acree of Rainy river, brothers Wayne (Ann) of Rainy river, Perry (Eva) of Kenora, George (Pat) of Kenora, Paul of Thunder Bay. Sisters; Nancy (Bill) Russell of Winnipeg, Kathie Bradfield of Sault Ste. Marie, Julie (Richard) Roy of Keewatin. Sister-in-law Natalie Ducharme of Kenora and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and many, many friends, especially Bob (Tank) Magnusson.

Chuck's love of music from an early age grew into a passion for the trumpet and is now being continued by daughter Amy. Always having an inquisitive mind and a desire to know what made things work, led him into auto mechanics which became his trade of choice. Of late he built a T-bucket from the frame up. Other hobbies he made time for included gazing at the stars through a telescope, building model airplanes, and exploring the underwater world in scuba gear. Charles was always ready for a lively discussion with family and friends to explain "the world according to Chuck".

As a member of the Keewatin Legion Chuck was called upon to play taps at the Remembrance Day Services and other legion functions.

As Charles walked his Road of Life there were many turns. It was on one of these corners that he found the Lord Jesus through the Water of Life Family Church. The family of the late Charles Edward Acree wish to thank Pastors Carol and Bill Lawson for all their prayers and support.

Honorary Pallbearers are: Bob Magnusson, Ian MacDonell, Ross Playfair, Wayne Myren, Blackie Belanger, Dave McDonald.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.

Immediate Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life is to be held Friday, June 20th, at 10:30 a.m., at the Water of Life Family Church, 924 11th Avenue North, Kenora.

God has granted you peace.
