Unexpectedly but peacefully at her residence surrounded by her family on Thursday, May 19, 2005, Margaret Roseanna COOPER (formerly WILSON, SUTTON, née LEWIS) in her 76th year.

She was adored and will be so missed by her grandchildren Joseph WILSON, Michael WILSON, Jessica FEWSTER (Chris PEPPER), Tiffany FEWSTER, Kelly ALMEIDA (John,) Corey SUTHERLAND and Hillary SUTHERLAND (Dan DESMOND.)
Being one of 18 siblings was a point of pride for Margaret (Maggie) because despite the numbers there was always enough love and laughter to go around. Of the 18 children, 14 grew to have families of their own but there always remained a very close connection between each and every one of them. Surviving brothers and sisters include: William LEWIS (Hildred,) Florence ASHFORD (Claude,) Bernice SAMPSON/SAMSON (Charlie), Hector LEWIS (Eileen), Sadie JOYES (Ray), Hazel MacSWEEN, George LEWIS (Susie), Joyce STANDING (Bobby), Daniel LEWIS (Anna) and Shirley MURRAY. "Aunt Marg" was considered a "favorite" to many, many nieces and nephews. Also survived by exhusband and good friend Bob WILSON Sr. of Owen Sound. There is probably a kitchen in heaven right now with a tea pot on the stove and some good Cape Breton fiddle music playing and love, laughter and memories being shared between Marg and her predeceased parents Maude (HINKS) and John Henry LEWIS, brothers Jim and Stan LEWIS and sister Mary BAKER. She was also predeceased by two great men who came into her life and brightened it in their own loving ways, husband Raymond SUTTON, husband Kenneth COOPER. Friends may call at the R.D. Longworth Funeral Home, 845 Devonshire Avenue Woodstock (539-0004) on Sunday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. where the funeral service will be held in the chapel on Monday at 1: 30 p.m. with Reverend John FURRY officiating.

(retired Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television producer/director/executive producer)
On Thursday, November 24, 2005, of complications arising from a chronic lung illness. Paddy was born in Belfast, Ulster, June 18 1926, and raised 12 miles along the road in Holywood. Jim, as his mother Jean and father Bob called him, lied about his age and joined the Royal Navy at 15, spending most of World War 2 on ships in the Pacific where he was nick-named "Paddy"; the name stuck. A post-war career as a stage lighting director in London and in rep theatre around England made him a natural for a career at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He started in 1952 as a stage hand, quickly moved up through the ranks of what were the beginnings of a new medium, and finally claimed variety shows as his own. He was a brilliant director who had a special knack with stars and coaxed great performances from the talent and crews alike. He retired from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1985 leaving a gap never bridged. The acclaimed opening and closing ceremonies of the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary which involved a cast of thousands was his last great omnibus event. Paddy was a great reader; he rose before dawn to digest ideas and facts before he even considered breakfast. Nothing gave him more pleasure than arguing the details of history and yet he was the most agreeable of men. For Bette LADEROUTE, his wife and pal of 36 years, the loss is immeasurable. Paddy, who has lived in Port Hope for the last six years, is predeceased by his parents, his brother Jack, also a television director, and his niece Christine SAMPSON/SAMSON. He will be greatly missed by his sister Elizabeth STEFFEN (Malcolm GREYSON,) sister-in-law Christel SAMPSON/SAMSON, nieces Shanty STEFFEN and Carol SUTHERLAND, nephew Robert SAMPSON/SAMSON, ten great nieces and nephews and his many Friends. A private family service will be held in Port Hope and plans for a good old Irish wake will be announced in the New Year.
