Olga Cyr

Peacefully on Wednesday, February 18th, 2004 at Lake of the Woods District Hospital, Olga Cyr aged 79, passed away after a lengthy illness.

Predeceased by her father Peter Pasternak, she is survived by her

mother Joanna Pasternak of Kenora, sons Dwayne (Colleen) of Kenora, Gordon (Denise) of Lethbridge, Alberta, and grandsons Matthew and Clinton Cyr of Kenora.

Born October 26th, 1924 in Diamond City Alberta, Olga grew up on the family homestead at Big River, Saskatchewan during the 1930's where she fished, hunted, and trapped.

Educated in nursing, institutional food preparation, and meat cutting, Olga worked on the passenger ship SS Princess Mary off the West Coast as well as various hospitals and institutions.

During WW II Olga painted planes for the war effort.

In the mid 50's while operating a restaurant at Waterton Lakes, Olga met and married Henry Cyr and resided in Pincher Creek, Alberta.

Olga settled in Kenora in the early 60's and worked in the kitchen at St. Mary's Residential School.

At Ash Rapids Camp, where Olga cooked for eight years, she met many interesting friends, which she kept in touch with until the end.

Olga's greatest joy was to make a big home cooked meal for family and friends and will be remembered as generous, strong willed, and independent.

Family and friends are invited to the Days Inn on Tuesday, February 24, 2004 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. for a celebration of Olga's life.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, Kenora District Unit, P.O. Box 824, Kenora, Ontario P9N 4B5 would be appreciated.

Donald McLeod Horne


It is with great sadness that Don passed away suddenly with his wife by his side on February 3rd, 2004 at Lake Of The Woods District Hospital.

You would never find Don in the house, he would be outside doing what he loved the most - either working in the yard, out in his boat on the Winnipeg River, working on his model airplanes or cross country skiing. He had many passions in his life. You would always see that special twinkle in his eye when the great grandchildren walked into the room. To them he was known as Papa.

Margaret Rose Kerr

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Margaret Rose Kerr, wife, mother, daughter, grandma sister and friend.

Mom fought a courageous battle and never gave up. Her strength and courage touched us all.

Mom was born in Kenora, October 22, 1943 to Fred and Nettie Dubchak. She met dad as a young girl when he threw her shoes in the ditch and wouldn't go get them until mom kissed him. Mom never told us if she kissed him, but back then you never went home without your shoes.

They were married June 22, 1963 and were blessed with 40 wonderful years together.

Moms greatest love in her life was her grandchildren. They had the "coolest" grandma in town.

Anyone that knew mom knew what a wonderful person she was. Her kitchen was always open and an extra plate for supper was always on the table. Her flowers and gardens were her pride and joy. Her cucumber patch was second to none. Mom threw a mean horseshoe and had many trophies to brag with.

Mom will be fondly remembered by all the children who rode her school bus over the years. Mom took special pride in driving many kids to school for their first day and came home with great stories to share.

Mom will be deeply missed by her husband Dave, daughters Leanne (Jeff), Hazen and Ryley, Lori (Bob) Jon and Nick, Stacy (Robert) Neniska, Emma, Kylee and Jared.

She also leaves to mourn her mother Nettie Dubchak, sisters Elsie (Dennis) Reynard, Carolle (Doug) Dreger, brother Stubby (Bev) Dubchak and numerous nieces and nephews.

Margie will be missed by everyone who knew her.

A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, February 10, 2004 at 1:00 p.m. at Notre Dame Roman Catholic Church with Father Thomas officiating.

A special thank-you to everyone who helped mom in her battle, especially Kim, Carolyn, Louise, Dr. Sas and Dr. Beveridge at chemo.

At the family's request, in lieu of flowers donations can be made in mom's memory to the Cancer Society or the Lake of the Woods District Hospital CT Fund.

John Robert Madison

John Robert Madison passed away on Thursday, February 5th, 2004 at Pinecrest Home at 91 years of age.

He was born on April 22, 1912 at his parents' homestead near Golden Vale, Saskatchewan. He retired in June 1974 after 39 years of teaching, the last 29 of those in the Kenora Lakehead High School.

John married Elva Kennett of Fort Frances in June 1942. They were blessed with three sons, Dale (Marlene) of Keewatin; Glen (Christine) of LacLu; and Gerry (Darlene) of Winnipeg and also four grandsons; Todd (Laura and daughter Cypress); Bradley (Adena); Barry and Niles, and two granddaughters; Tasha and Mackenzie. John also leaves a brother Jim of Toronto, a sister-in-law, Janice Marshall of Fort Frances and many much loved nieces and nephews.

He was a member of the Keewatin Masonic Lodge for over fifty years and served as a Master there.

John was an avid outdoorsman; loved gardening, hunting, fishing, and lumbering. He was very proud of the wood he milled on his own. He spent many of his retirement years in his workshop creating wooden gifts for his many relatives and friends.

John and Elva spent many happy summer holidays with their family, many friends and relatives at their camp on Jackfish Lake. After their retirement they enjoyed winter outings there, too, with their snow machines, snowshoes and skis. John also loved traveling and he and Elva made good use of their camper during holidays.

John will be deeply missed by his loving wife, his immediate family, and his many close relatives and friends. He will also be fondly remembered by the dozens of Keewatin and Kenora residents who passed through his hands during his many teaching years.

A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, February 10th, 2004 at St. Andrew's United Church in Keewatin at 2:00 p.m.

As expressions of sympathy donations to the Alzheimer Society of Kenora/Rainy River Districts, P. O. Box 837, Kenora, Ontario P9N 4B5 or to Pinecrest Home for the Aged, 1220 Valley Drive, Kenora, Ontario P9N 2W7 would be appreciated.
