McTAGGART, Ruth
In loving memory of my grandmother, Ruth, who passed away April My mom was sad when you passed away. I told her that you were not gone because your memories will forever live on. My early impressions of you grandma, will always be strong as the heart is never wrong.
My Memories.
You always had a treat for me. We baked cookies and went for walks together along the beach. You took me to a zoo and fair.
Some special occasions that we shared were Christmas and Halloween. You would tell a teddy bear story in the palm of my hand and then tickle me. A smile that would light up a room. You were beautiful, loving and kind.
A Promise.
To be a part of your grandchildren's lives and watching them grow up was important to you. Grandma, don't be blue.
I have sensed your spirit around me.
Show no more sorrow, only glee. You will always be with me. God, has his reasons for calling us home. I know that you're not alone. Please give grandma a hug for me.
Hold her hand and let her see. Heaven is an eternal reward of great happiness. Grandma, you will always be missed.
A Wish.
Star light, star bright may you shine for me at night.
Lovingly remembered by your grand_son, Matthew and honoured by your daughter, Janice.

MCINNES/MCINNIS, Edythe Frances (née CALLAGHAN)
Peacefully, on Thursday, November 24, 2005, a long time resident of Mt. Carmel, Ontario, more recently of Chateau Gardens, Parkhill, passed away at Chateau Gardens, at the age of 88. Predeceased by her husband of over 50 years, John "Jack" Feeney MCINNES/MCINNIS (June, 2005). Left to cherish her memory are daughter, Ann and her husband Clive TONGE, Strathroy and son Paul and his wife Shelley MCINNES/MCINNIS of Mt. Carmel, sisters-in-law, Margaret CALLAHAN, Sarnia and Bea CALLAHAN, Teeswater. Numerous nieces, nephews and Friends will lovingly remember her. Predeceased by parents, Thomas J. and Ann Jane "Jennie" (COMISKEY) CALLAGHAN, brothers; Terrance (1913), Joseph C. "Tim" (1995), John C. "Jack" (1992) and sisters Marjorie VALLIERES (1983,) Helen McTAGGART (2004,) Mary (1922.) Edythe was born in Watford, Ontario December 21, 1916, where she grew up. She attended Watford Public School, Watford High School and Progressive Business School, London. After graduating, she worked in London at the Bureau of Credits and then the Mobilization Office as assistant to the registrar. After the war, she worked for Simpson's Department store, in the credit department, until she married and started raising her family. Jack and Ede then moved to Grand Bend, they owned and operated the Imperial Hotel for many years. No matter the job, whether it was helping her father, Tom, drive cattle, to being a mother she always gave the task at hand her full attention. As a child she loved listening to her father tell tales of when he was growing up in Adelaide Twp., as an adult she loved to relate tales of her life growing up in Watford. Her family was first and foremost to her and in later years she was interested in genealogy. She was always proud of her Irish background. Over the years the "g" has been dropped from Callaghan, her maiden name, her comment was "I came into the world with the "g" and I'll go out with it!" She had a wonderful sense of humour and a quick wit. Ede and Jack liked to travel when the children were younger they would go to Florida for holidays. When the children were older, they would pack up the car and go to Louisville on the first weekend of May to attend The Kentucky Derby (always a favorite trip). During retirement years Jack and Ede liked to head south to Panama City Beach, in their '68 Thunderbird for a few months to get away from the cold. Her laugh, her smile, her sense of adventure, are a few of the things we loved about her. She will be missed. The family would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. WHYNOT, the staff at Strathroy Hospital (1st floor south,) Doctors WILSON and TAILOR/TAYLOR, Grand Bend and everyone at Chateau Gardens for their care and compassion. Resting at the T. Harry Hoffman and Sons Funeral Home, Dashwood, with visitation Monday, November 28th, 2005 from 9: 30 a.m. to 10: 30 a.m. followed by the funeral mass at Our Lady of Mt.
