McRAE, Elizabeth "Betty" Hope (formerly PICHÉ, née BLYTH)
By Bob McRAE, Page A32
Philanthropist, wife, mother. Born December 15, 1922, in Britannia Bay, Ontario Died July 23, in Ottawa, of leukemia, aged 83.
Betty McRAE was born (as were three sporting boys) to William and May BLYTH. She grew up in the Great Depression, in a family thankful for the monthly cheque brought home by her father, a decorated First World War veteran. To listen to Betty, she had the best childhood imaginable. Betty told stories of summer swimming at Britannia Park beach, diving off the towers at the end of the pier or watching streetcars bringing thousands to the "end of the line" and, in winter, skating on Mud Lake or across farmers' fields under glistening stars.
Betty married Earl PICHÉ while in her late teens; they had a son. Her young husband was soon off to fight in the Second World War. One day, only weeks before the end of the war, Betty learned that her husband Earl had been killed in Germany by a sniper's bullet. Just a few months earlier, her dear brother Fred had been killed fighting in Italy.
A short while later Bill McRAE (a childhood sweetheart) called and late in 1946 they were married. Together Bill and Betty had five children whom they raised (along with her first son, Earl). Betty embraced motherhood, unconditionally, from the beginning, to the end. Her children truly have difficulty remembering a day that she took off.
Family and Friends were Betty's passion. Photographs adorned every wall of her home. Until recently, Betty held family Sunday night dinners, dinners every Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and other special occasions. These were gargantuan undertakings with her children, grandchildren and often a few other invitees attending. Betty's phone was constantly busy as her children, and often grandchildren, checked in daily, if for no other reason than just to hear her voice.
She had a friendly smile or hello for anyone she passed and often would stop to talk, whether to a homeless person, a student packing groceries, a person doing some volunteer work, or someone out for a walk. Often on leaving she would give students or the less fortunate some money, along with some words of encouragement. Betty gave to more charities than you can imagine, particularly organizations devoted to the well-being and health of people. Betty was particularly devoted to the war veterans and their causes. Every year for weeks leading up to Remembrance Day, she would faithfully sell poppies then spend every November 11 watching the ceremonies on television; she preferred mourning by herself.
Betty had a genuine joie de vivre; her jovial, friendly spirit was contagious, with everyone seeking her out for some good-natured fun, conversation or dancing. She was able to lift the spirits and bring out the fun side of the most introverted.
Betty was an intelligent, beautiful, fit woman, until recently looking 20 years younger than her age. She loved politics, elections, and sports, both participating and watching them. Up until the age of 81, when her leukemia began to slow her down, Betty played tennis regularly for hours at a time and adored her walks for miles along the scenic paths of the Ottawa River Parkway.
This summer the leukemia began to seriously restrict Betty's independence. Never wanting to be any sort of a burden, Betty decided it was time. For two weeks in July she rested at home and said goodbye to family and Friends. Only hours after becoming a great-grandmother for the first time, Betty took her last breath at home, held by her husband and children.
At Betty's burial, a sunny summer day, the bagpipes played, and butterflies, representative of resurrection, flitted about as a hundred balloons were released into the beautiful blue sky.
Bob McRAE is Betty's son.

LUND, Gregor Selmer
Greg LUND of Oakville, Ontario died peacefully on December 13, 2006. God graciously prevented Greg from lingering in a deteriorating state. Greg's health, although failing in the past five years, ended quickly, painlessly and almost abruptly. His wife Diana and daughter Kathryn were at his side. Greg was born on August 5, 1921 in Arcadia, Wisconsin. While Greg enjoyed the tranquility and peace of 'God's Country' and farming, he felt lead to follow his heart. He met Diana (McRAE) in New York City during World War 2. She was employed doing security work for the British intelligence service. Greg had been called up by the Navy from the Coast Guard (New London, Connecticut) met Diana at a United Service Organizations function. Greg crossed the Atlantic more than 40 times, during the war, and also sailed in the Pacific. Following the war Greg and Diana married in Toronto. They celebrated their 60th Anniversary in November 2006. Greg is survived by his wife Diana, daughter Kathryn (of Sacramento, California) and son Chris (of Wellandport, Ontario). He was predeceased by his son Scott in August 1965. He was the proud grandfather of five grandchildren: Jennifer and Julie (in California) and Gregor, Aaron and Danielle (in Hamilton, Ontario). There are three Great-Grandchildren in California: Austin, Ethan and Destiny. Trips to see his family in Wisconsin were a time Greg touched the earth again and gained balance with the stress filled work which filled his daily life. Greg developed a company to service the Mobile Home industry across Canada. Greg's faith was a beacon of his daily life. He participated in many church committees, teams and related services. He enjoyed wood working, gardening, sailing and walking the dog. Greg's work and pleasure often called for travel. According to his wishes, cremation has taken place. A private memorial service will be held in Oakville. In lieu of flowers, gifts to the Alzheimer's Society 905-339-2140 would be appreciated by the family. We wish to thank the caring staff at Harbour House at West Oaks facility. Psalm 91 was one of his favourite passages. We can see him beneath the wing of God. What amazing grace was given to him.

DUNCAN, James Main (1919-2006)
Died peacefully on Saturday, February 25, 2006, in his 87th year after a valiant struggle with multiple illnesses and immense pain. Main was loved by his wife of 54 years, Frances (née McCRAW,) his children, Craig (Pauline TETLEY,) Elizabeth (Mike SHARIFF) and Robert (d. 1995) and his four grandchildren, Michelle and Carolyn SHARIFF and Alex and Jim DUNCAN. Main will also be missed by his cousins Herb VALENTINE, Marjorie SUTHERLAND along with many nieces and nephews. Main devoted most of his working years to Canadian National Railways where his career spanned 43 years, starting as a file clerk and a Claims Agent for the Law Department. Like many of his generation, Main's life was disrupted by World War 2 and he served with the Royal Canadian Air Force in Goose Bay, Labrador and Biggin Hill, England. After discharge, Main attended Osgoode Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1953 and returned to Canadian National Railway to practise transportation law. Main and his family were transferred around the country as his responsibilities grew, eventually moving to Montreal in 1968 where he was promoted to Vice President Law, then Executive Vice President until he left in 1978 for an appointment to the Ontario Highway Transport Board in Toronto where he served for six years before retiring. Main was later awarded his Q.C. in recognition of his distinguished career in law. Following retirement Main travelled with Frances and volunteered in his community and as recently as early January of 2006 was still the well loved piano player at the Mississauga Long Term Care Facility for other seniors. Main's was a life well lived and he'll be remembered for his quick wit, his talent on the piano, and his unfailing love for his wife and family. Mr. DUNCAN is resting at the funeral home of Skinner and Middlebrook Ltd., 128 Lakeshore Rd. E. (1 block west of Hurontario St.), Mississauga (parking off Ann St.) on Wednesday evening from 7-9 p.m. Funeral service in the chapel on Thursday, March 2, 2006 at 2: 00 p.m. Cremation.
