Back to the Soo by Jim McComb When memory brings up childhood scenes, of my days up on Bruce Hill, Of that four-room red brick schoolhouse, through the mists I see it still, I hear the school bell ring again, as we dragged ourselves indoors, To tasks not half as interesting as our noisy games outdoors, And our teachers, earth-bound angels, with the patience of a saint, As they taught us to add, subtract and divide, and theres so such word as aint, Of the kindly man who taught me and agreed that I could go, Running home at recess and feed my baby crow, That crow I plucked from the mothers nest, in a big old mile-high tree, Least, it seemed that high to a 10-year old, who returned triumphantly, And he followed me round my paper route, which he knew as well as me, And hed wait in a tree at our swimming hole, as we skinny-dipped wild and free, Then down hed come to my handlebars, and away like the wind wed fly, Hes still in my memory, plain as can be, and hell be there til I die, Youth, like time, does not stand still and Ive roamed to many strange places, But my heartstrings and memory were tied to Bruce hill, to the folk with the friendliest faces, Mother Nature was good to us here in the Soo, the rapids, the river below, On the sky to the west she paints scene after scene, in a breath-taking unending show. And if ever, I see heaven, though the chance is mighty slim, There St. Pete will no doubt ask me if Id like to step on in, I dont want to sound ungrateful Pete, but if its all the same to you, Would you kindly stamp me reject, send me back, back to the Soo. James McComb, July 1998

TURCOTT, Winnifred Agnes 1909 - 2001 Died peacefully in her sleep on January 2, 2001 at the Long Term Care Unit of the Pincher Creek Municipal Hospital, Alberta. Agnes, daughter of Henry and Margaret Lindgren, was born in Goren, Missouri on December 15, 1909 and was raised on the family homestead at Biggar, Saskatchewan. She is the mother of Garth (Joan) Turcott of Pincher Creek, Alberta, and Gary (Shirley) Turcott of New Liskeard, Ontario and is survived by 5 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren, 2 brothers, Bud Lindgren of Biggar, Saskatchewan, Wes Lindgren of Yale, British Columbia, and 1 sister, Eileen Jenkins of Couer dAlene, Idaho. She was predeceased by her husband, Bernard Alphonse Turcott, 2 sisters and 1 brother. She became a pioneer teacher at the age of 18 at an annual salary of $400. Agnes was a lifelong democratic socialist, and she firmly believed in the maxim From each according to their means, to each according to their needs. Her beliefs manifested themselves into action and she worked diligently all her life for the betterment of society. She was a candidate for the New Democratic Party in the Algoma, Ontario constituency in 1968. She was a councillor for the Township of Michipicoten for several terms. She and her husband, Alphonse published their own newspaper in Wawa, Ontario where the Turcotts lived from 1939 on. She and Alphonse fought fiercely to retain the name Wawa. She is best remembered for her great love of history, and established a museum at Fort Friendship on the Michipicoten River near Wawa. She is the author of Land of the Big Goose, a history of the Michipicoten area, a book which is still used as a text in Ontario schools. She worked closely with her entrepreneurial husband in Wawa until his death in 1974. In 1985 she moved to Pincher Creek to reside in Crestview Lodge and later in the Long Term Care unit. Her family expresses their deep gratitude for the most wonderful care she received in both those facilities. Cremation will be followed by a memorial service in her honour in Wawa, Ontario at a later date.

Memorial (01/06/01)
ADDISON In loving memory of a dear mother, mother-in-law and grandmother Patricia, who passed away January 6th, 2000. As I loved you, so I miss you; In my memory you are near. Loved, remembered, longed for always, Treasured with a love sincere. You are where I cannot see you, And your voice I cannot hear; Yet I know you walk beside me, Never absent, always near. Love always; Joe, Myrna, Kendra and Chad.

Memorial (01/06/01)
ADDISON In loving memory of a dear wife Paddy, who passed away January 6th, 2000. It's lonesome here without you, dear, I miss you more each day. Somehow, life does not seem the same Since you have gone away. My heart still aches with sadness, My eyes shed many a tear; God only knows I miss you As this ends another year. Never forgotten by your husband Chester.
