On April 9th, 2013, passed away in her seventieth year. Predeceased by her husband, retired Brigadier-General Patrick F. Maxwell to whom she was married for over 33 years. Predeceased by sister Margaret (Jim Childs), brothers Clifford, Gerry and Donald. Survived by sisters Phyllis, Diane, Beverly, godchildren Shawn Belaire, Steven Childs and Marilyn Rhude, as well as Duane Clifton, Kimberly and, Ron Belaire and numerous other nieces and nephews and their families. Born and raised in Ottawa. Attended Immaculata High School and graduated from McGill University's Macdonald campus. Worked many years in the R.C.A.F., including peacekeeping in the Middle East. She culminated her military career as Head of Food Services at the National Defence Medical Centre. True to her heritage, Barbara Ann was gregarious and fun-loving and had a wide circle of friends whom she had met through her work and through various activities such as swimming, book clubs, exercising and needlepoint. She enjoyed lunches with 'the girls', shopping and keeping in contact with many of her relatives. Barbara Ann loved her home and was constantly amused and delighted by her two adorable Rag Doll cats (brothers Finnegan and Seamus) and by the many outdoor creatures that frolicked in her backyard. Her home was her castle, her sanctuary. The grace and dignity with which she had fought her extended battle with cancer reinforced the community of love amongst all who knew her and now cherish her memory. Friends and family of Barbara Ann extend their heartfelt thanks to the medical staff at the Ottawa General hospital and at the Hospice at May Court, who did their best to provide her with comfort, love and compassion. Friends are invited to visit at the St. Laurent Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 1200 Ogilvie Road (at Aviation Parkway), Ottawa on Saturday, April 20th from 10 a.m. until the time of the Memorial Service in the Chapel at 11 a.m. Private interment of the ashes will be made at the Beechwood National Military Cemetery. Should you wish, donations in the memory of Barbara Ann to the Hospice at May Court, the Canadian Cancer Society or to the charity of your choice would be appreciated. CondolencesDonationsT ributes al: 4fr ' 613-748-1200 McKERCHER, Lois Rheta (Wilson) Beloved wife of the late John Alexander McKercher, died on 8 April 2013, aged 88, of natural causes. Predeceased by her siblings Boyd (Nita Selsey), George (Kathleen Russell) and Ruth (late .Stan Loschuk). Survived by her sons, Douglas Wilson (Erin Scullion), Peter Angus (Lindsay Chalmers) and David Alexander (Rosalind Conway), grandchildren Alexander, Caitlin (Scott Brookes), Fionn, Julie (Darcy Blais), James (Krista Holmes), Lauren, Gavin (Michelle Doiron) and Rebecca, and greatgrandchildren Ella, Isaac, Aaron, Jackson and Lane, and expected great-granddaughter Sloane. Lois was born at Sunnybrook Farm, near Harris, SK on 5 June 1924, to John Bulloch ("JB" or "24") and Florence (Stewart) Wilson. She endured the privations of Prairie dust storms until 1942, when, aged 18, she was offered a wartime job as a stenographer in Ottawa, some 2,000 miles from home. She never moved back, but also never forgot the tough country that had made her as strong as she was. An avid skater, she met a dashing Air Force pilot (weren't they all?) at the Minto skating club in 1945. She wisely laughed off his first-night proposal of marriage, only to succumb two weeks later. They were married in 1946, and lived with his mother and aunt in a one-bedroom second-floor walk-up on Bank Street. John returned to his pre-enlistment job at Bell Canada, and Lois followed him through two provinces, three countries and 12 moves, making a home out of whatever digs she was landed in, from "the old Mudd house" to an unfinished apartment festooned with Saudi chandeliers (temporary pigtail light fixtures). When they returned home for the final time to retirement, Lois was able to devote much more time to her painting. She was a founding member of the Pastel Society of Canada. When grandchildren came along, Lois and John lavished as much care and attention as if they were their own children. John died in 2001. Lois spent the last five years of her life in Billings Lodge and the Glebe Centre's Lindenwood unit, and her family are most grateful for the excellent care she received in both places. Many thanks also to Dr Gerd Schneider, who saw her through her final days.

And all the plans, safeguards, policies and coercion are fruitless. We find after years of struggle that we do not take the trip. The trip takes us." John Steinbeck wLXfrwl 159 Eglinton Ave. West, "D Toronto, Ontario JlmtmL V mw n 41 6-489-8733 Footsteps In The Sand One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him and the other to the LORD. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back, at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it: "LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me." The LORD replied: "My son, My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. Duringyourtimes of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Racine, Raba t & Gauthier Beauehaml) 61.1-21l-:li80 1 I'll ii li i inn lult'liri's .H mil 'ulirnn.lliltliri ST '-S0 ti PRINZO, Susanna "Susy" May 29, 1960 -April 11, 2013 Peacefully, demonstrating her usual grace and selflessness, surrounded by her loving family at home on Thursday, April 11th, 2013 at the age of 52 years. Beloved wife of Antonio "Tony" Prinzo, precious mother of Carmela, Nadia (John Stephens), and Giacomo. Cherished daughter of Clara Vogrig and the late Joe Vogrig. Treasured sister of Isabel Cheney and Anthony Vogrig (Sandra). She will be sadly missed by nieces, nephews, godchildren, family and friends in both Canada and Italy. If you had been blessed with the opportunity to know our mom, you could not help but love her. Born in Ottawa to northern Italian parents, she was the ideal daughter; loving, respectful, responsible and studious. She loved creative writing and excelling at school, and with a stunning height of 511", she was a talented basketball player and athlete. Susy dreamt of one day being a mother and working as an accountant. Her dreams would be fulfilled sooner than she expected after meeting her soul mate, Tony, at 17 years old. Six months later, they were married and began their journey together, dedicating their lives to their children whom they adored and working tirelessly to build a successful, well-respected business, Prinzo Fine Catering. It is no exaggeration to describe Susy as the perfect mom and wife. Her exquisite inner beauty and light shone through as outer beauty. Often likened to Princess Diana, Susy was tall, slim, with beautiful hair; she was elegant, classic, graceful, and always humble. She had a wonderful silly side and sense of humour, and an easy, bubbly laugh. Spending time with Susy was like coming home; she made you feel comfortable and cared for. Among all of her special gifts, her selflessness was second to none. Even during her final days, she was always more concerned about ensuring her family and friends had eaten and had everything they needed before taking care of her own needs. Susy was a role model to her family and friends alike: she was forgiving, empathetic, kind and generous. Despite the many challenges, pain and fear that cancer brought to her life, rather than complaining or carrying bitterness and anger, Mom taught us to trust in God's plan, to love and support one another, to appreciate the simple pleasures, and to be strong. Thank you Susy, we will remember you always. Friends may pay respects at Kelly Funeral Home, Somerset Chapel 585 Somerset St. W.
