ROSEHART, Sister Marilyn Catherine
At Parkwood Hospital, London on Thursday, March 24, 2005, Sister Marilyn Rosehar t (formerly Sister Edna Marie), of the Community of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Diocese of London, at age 68 years and in her 49th year of religious life. Marilyn is lovingly remembered and will be sadly missed by her sisters in community and by her family. Her sisters and brother have been faithfully with her especially during these past months of her illness. Marilyn is predeceased by her father Paul in 1945, her mother Edna (McELHONE) in 2002 and her brother-in-law William MUSICK in 1971. Besides her sisters and Friends in community, she is mourned by her sisters Pat MUSICK of Dundas, Gerry DYRKACZ and her husband Marvin of Calgary, Alberta, Jean MECH and her husband Bob of Hamilton, Ginny LASANOWSKI and her husband Stan of Guelph and her brother Paul and wife Sharon of Elora. Many nieces and nephews will remember their aunt as someone who was vitally interested in their lives - Lynn, Michelle, Lisa, Lori, Erica, Paula, Paul, Tom, Mike and Mark. Marilyn's memory and vital spirit will be kept alive for the next generation of great nieces and nephews. They will carry the goodness of her spirit into the future. Marilyn was raised in Simcoe and grew up in a close-knit family where the seeds of responsibility, faith and respect for people were planted. She had training in both administration and in spiritual direction and these gifts led her to administrative work in St. Joseph's Hospital in London and Chatham as well as Saint Mary's Hospital. She also served in leadership positions within the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph. More recently she worked at St. Joseph's Hospitality Centre where she became friend to so many volunteers and clients alike. Her warmth, sensitive spirit, keen wit and good old-fashioned practicality created many lasting relationships. She had a tenacious sense of what needed to be done and did not let apparent obstacles deter her. Her Friends always knew her as someone who supported and encouraged their endeavours. For the last six years she was a co-director at Medaille Spirituality Centre where she enjoyed creating space for others to rest and to reflect. Her sense of the beautiful and her passion for hospitality to others were two strong strands of her own spirituality. Marilyn and those close to her are so appreciative of the many people who were part of the last phase of her journey into God. In particular we wish to extend gratitude to the nursing staff at Parkwood Palliative Care and Dr. John SWIFT for their day to day care and encouraging words. Dr. Kelly REGAN and Dr. Seema LUKE played significant roles in getting Marilyn the care that she needed. The Palliative Care Out reach Team were such a wonderful and constant support. Resting at Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse, 1486 Richmond Street, N., London on Monday, March 28, 2005 from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. and Tuesday, March 29, 2005 from 9 a.m. until 10: 15 a.m. Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated in Immaculate Conception Chapel, Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse, 1486 Richmond Street, N., London on Tuesday, March 29 at 10: 30 a.m. Interment to follow in St. Peter's Cemetery. The Vigil Service will be at Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse on Monday, March 28, 2005 at 7: 30 p.m. At the request of her family and in keeping with Marilyn's spirit, in lieu of flowers, donations to St. Joseph's Hospitality Centre, London, would be appreciated.

MORRISSEY, Hon. Martin Thomas Joseph
Of London, Ontario, passed away peacefully on October 16, 2005, with his family at his side at the age of 84. Martin is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Mary Kathleen MORRISSEY (nee CROCKER,) daughter Theresa and husband Stephen JARRETT, daughter Elizabeth and husband David BLACK, son Paul and wife Mary Jo, and daughter Deidre and husband Malcolm RUDDOCK. He is survived by two sisters, Josephine BRESNAHAN (Barry's Bay) and Bernadette BELANGER (Hamilton.) Martin is predeceased by his parents, Elizabeth Agnes (née O'CONNOR) and Martin Lawrence, and siblings, Leonard, Irene, Jimmy, and Rose. Grandpa will be sadly missed by grandchildren Adam, Michael, and Peter JARRETT; Jennifer and John BLACK; Patrick, Joseph, Brendan, James, John, Peter, and Luke MORRISSEY; and Callum and Emma RUDDOCK. He will also be missed by his large extended family who were always in his thoughts and prayers. Born August 29, 1921, in Madawaska, Ontario, Martin was the youngest of seven. Because his father died before his birth, Martin and his siblings looked to eldest brother Leonard to help their mother manage the farm. Martin's childhood was filled with hard work and laughter, and the simple pleasures of the Madawaska Valley. Martin enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941; upon discharge in 1945, he enrolled at Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1949. Martin was employed at the Toronto firm of Slaght, Ferguson, Boland and Slaght, then in 1950 moved to London, joining the firm of Little Calder, which became Little, Morrissey, Gillespie and Reeves. There his practice was focused primarily on municipal and education law, as well as civil litigation and solicitors' work. Martin was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1974 and served as President of the Middlesex Bar Association (1975). In 1980 Martin was appointed to the Bench, serving the Peel Region in the County and District Court of Ontario and subsequently the Ontario Court (General Division) until 1994. Martin served his community through many organizations, including Clarkson Community Volunteers (1993-01), Credit Valley Hospital (Board of Directors, 1981-84), St. Leonard's House (Board of Directors, 1972-74), St. Leonard's Society of Canada (1972-75), House of Providence for Senior Citizens (Marian Villa) (Board Chair, 1960-62), Irish Benevolent Society (President, 1959-60), Canadian Federation of Newman Clubs (Vice President 1949-50), Knights of Columbus (Member, Fourth Degree), and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ontario (London Chapter) and Ontario Credit Union League (Honorary Solicitor). In 2001 Martin and Mary returned to London to be closer to family and Cedar Shadows, the Port Franks cottage that is a cherished legacy for his family. Martin was singularly proud of his family, from his wife's artistic talents and his children's professional accomplishments, to his grandchildren's educational and sports achievements, and his family is so proud of what Martin accomplished through hard work and determination. Visitation will be held at James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London, on Thursday, October 20 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael's Church, 515 Cheapside St. at Maitland, London, on Friday, October 21 at 11 a.m. (private interment). Parish Prayers will be held in the funeral home on Thursday at 3 p.m. Thanks to all who have supported Martin and his family over the last three years, particularly Dr. SWIFT and the staff in the Palliative Care Unit at London Health Sciences Centre, the staff at the Adam Linton Dialysis Unit, the staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre, and the Cancer Society volunteer drivers; also, we want to thank all of the caring St. Elizabeth nurses and personal support workers (particularly Sam, Bob, Nick, and Mike), and the staff of Sir Adam Beck Condominium. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Sisters of Saint Joseph Hospitality Centre, 707 Dundas Street, London, Ontario N5W 2Z5, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

O'SULLIVAN, Gerard " Gerry" Joseph
Born April 18, 1925, Toronto. He passed away November 13, 2005, in the Queen Elizabeth 2 Victoria General Site. He was the son of the late Denis and Elizabeth (KERSHAW) O'SULLIVAN. Gerry graduated in 1946 from the University of Toronto with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He later went on to have a varied and interesting career in nuclear engineering with Atomic Energy of Canada at Sheridan Park, Ontario. He wanted best to be known for doing his job well - as a husband, a father, a grandfather and an engineer. He enjoyed the camaraderie of Friends: playing golf, bridge and bowling, all associated with Brightwood Golf and Country Club, Dartmouth. His spontaneous sense of humour amused and endeared him to many. He is survived by his beloved wife of 53 years, Josephine (Jo) née STRICKEY of Sydney, Cape Breton Island, his dear daughter Marianne (DARIUSZ,) the apple of his eye - granddaughter Anna, his brother Jack, his sisters Mary BROOKS, Helen HEAKES, Agnes (Wilfred) NEVINS, Bernadette (Jim) SWIFT, all of Ontario, Maureen (Jim) SMITH, Quebec, many nieces and nephews. Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, November 17, 2005 in A.L. Mattatall Funeral Home, Dartmouth. A Mass to celebrate Gerry's life will be held at St. Peter's Church, Dartmouth, Thursday, November 17th, at 12 noon, Father Owen Connelly officiating. Burial in Resurrection Cemetery, Cape Breton Island at a later date. Family flowers only, please. Memorial donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, St. Peter's Church or a charity of your choice. Special thanks to Doctors LOUCHRIN, REGNIER, LAURIE and CAULDRELIER and nurses on the 5th floor of the Ottawa General Hospital. Also to Drs.
