DIONISSIOU, PERICLES (PETER) - passed away peacefully in Regina, June 14, 2006 at the age of 80 years. Peter is survived by his wife, Angeliki (Angie), his beloved wife of 55 years. Peter was predeceased by his parents George and Magdelini; and his brother George. Although Peter and Angie had no children of their own, they cherish over twenty nephews and nieces that love Angie and Peter as their parents, and through them they have found great joy and reward. Born on October 20, 1925 in Kaltezes, Greece where he met and married his wife Angie before immigrating to Canada in 1955, Peter began his restaurant career spanning over 40 years, a career marked not only by his genuine love of great food, but also his desire to share it with everyone. Peter and Angie established and operated with partners, Julianna Pizza and the Mediterranean Dining Room in Regina, where they had the opportunity to convert many customers into good friends. Peter was a proud member of the Regina Greek Community throughout the years, and he maintained a strong presence well into his active retirement. Peter was a hunter and a passionate outdoorsman. If he wasn't off hunting deer or fowl, most likely you would find him on an early morning walk, or in his yard grafting apple trees or tending to his successful vegetable garden. He also enjoyed shopping local grocery stores, and often the farmers' markets for the freshest produce. Not to be missed was a visit with friends for coffee, good company, and to lend his opinion to the discussion of the day. Suppertime would usually find Peter with Angie, at Demetra Pappas' house, sharing a meal with family. Peter was a generous man and countless times has helped family, friends, and has made significant contributions to charitable causes. Pericles is dearly loved and will be greatly missed by us all. Prayers will be held Sunday, June 18, 2006 at 8:00 p.m. in Saint Paul's Greek Orthodox Church, 3000 Argyle Road. Funeral Service will be held Monday, June 19 at 3:00 p.m. in Saint Paul's Greek Orthodox Church, with Rev. Fr. Spyridon Vandoros officiating. Interment in Regina Cemetery.

DOLAN, KATHLEEN MAY DOLAN - It is with deep sadness that the family announces the passing of Kathleen on the evening of June 8th, 2006 at Kennedy Manor in Regina. She passed away at the age of 84 years, in the arms of her loving daughter, Maureen, and with her devoted caregiver, Marlene Kish, at her side. Kathleen was born and raised in Ponteix, Saskatchewan. As a young woman, Kathleen moved to Toronto with her mother and sisters. She and her mother went to work at York Arsenal and her younger sisters attended school. Eventually Kathleen moved on to work at de Havilland Aircraft and became known as `Katie the Riveter' where she worked on parts for planes for the war effort. At the end of the war in 1945 she moved to Winnipeg and took a hairdressing course at Marvel Hair School, graduating with top marks. When her beau, Emmet, returned from overseas, they got engaged and were married shortly after on June 14th, 1946 at Knox United Church in Winnipeg. The young couple then moved to Regina to begin a new life together. In February, 1947, they became the proud parents of a baby girl by the name of Maureen. Kathleen was a stay-at-home mom for many years but in the early sixties she returned to work, this time at Rosemont Queen City Cleaners, as an office clerk. At first she was very nervous, but soon grew to love the job and her customers as they did her. She worked there for over 25 years and during that time she made many friends and watched a number of the children in the neighbourhood grow up. Kathleen was always a good listener and many of her customers were very comfortable leaning on the counter sharing with her some of the most intimate details of their lives, some sad, some joyful. First and foremost Kathleen deeply loved her family and friends. Pleasures in her life included growing plants, shopping (oh my, and what a shopper she was), old time music and dancing. Last but not least, she loved to talk on the phone and became known to her friends and family as `Chatty Kathy'. Kathleen was preceded in death by her husband, Emmet, and her parents, Gladys and Fred Parsons. She will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her daughter Maureen Dolan, two sisters, Charmaine Rainey of Virden, MB, Verna Evans of Regina, niece Kathryn (Gary) Massina of Brandon, MB and their two sons Sean and Ryan Massina, nephew Ron Lelond of Campbell River, BC and very close family friends, Dianne Turner and Devona Ager. Also her beloved friends of forty-five years, Don and Lillian Ross of Regina and her goddaughter, Judy Wallace, of Regina. Kathleen is also survived by her four sisters-in-law, Rita Dolan, Margaret McDonald, RoseMary Miller, Teresa Pope and two brothers-in-law Frank and Jack Dolan. It is with heartfelt gratitude that I thank the following special people who cared for my mother during the last few years. Dr. Carol Geddes for bringing my mom through a number of serious illnesses. She thought the world of you. Dr. Barry Lotz for the kind and compassionate care you gave my mother during the last year and a half. Marlene Kish and all the wonderful staff at Kennedy Manor. Thank you so much for giving my Mother a wonderful home and gentle loving care for the last years of her life. I will be eternally grateful to you, Marlene, for being there with my Mother and me during her final hours. You were `Missy' Kathleen's guardian angel. There will be no funeral service at Kathleen's request. A private interment will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, #301 2550 12th Avenue, Regina S4P 3X1, the Canadian Cancer Society, 1910 McIntyre Street, Regina S4P 2R3 or to a charity of your choice.
