EADIE--In loving memory of Johnny Eadie, 1916 - 1943.
The ballad of Johnny Eadie
It was on a winter’s day when Johnny Eadie sailed away
To old England far across the deep blue sea.
And his heart was gay and light to be in the freedom fight,
This young Canadian who had dreams of victory.
‘Cause in time they were to come against the foe.
And as he marched he had good faith in the famous forty-eighth,
Those brave highlanders of Canada’s pride and show.
Refrain
Oh, Johnny Eadie we salute you
You’re just one who helped to see we did not fall,
And our courage and great endurance
Will forever be remembered by us all.
In the year of forty-three, on the isle of Sicily
This lad, he fell for his dear Canadian land.
And his duty it was done, in a battle that was won,
But young Johnny did not live to see the end.
He now lies ‘neath foreign soil
Where Sicilians live and toil
And his grave is there to see e’re you may pass.
He was killed in No Man’s Land
For the liberty of man, now his cross stands there, a symbol of his great task.
Oh, Johnny Eadie we salute you
You are the one who helped to see we did not fall
And your courage and great endurance will
Forever be remembered by us all.
Written by Stanley J. MILLS who grew up in Little Current and was in the same regiment as Johnny EADIE.
Joyce BROWN.

Farm deaths 'very sad'
Weekend accidents kill two in Perth County
By Joe BELANGER, Tues., April 22, 2008
Perth County's farming community is reeling after two of its own were killed in weekend accidents.
The deaths have agriculture officials urging farmers to take fewer risks at a time when the pressure's on to get in their spring planting.
"It's very, very sad," said Andy DE VRIES, an Ontario Federation of Agriculture director for Perth North.
"It's just devastating for the whole community to have something like that happen."
Glen MILLS, 44, of Blanshard Ward, was killed Sunday when he fell into a liquid manure tank and drowned.
Russell KIPFER/KUEPFER, 40, of Milverton, was killed Saturday when he was crushed beneath a cultivator he was working on.
Perth Ontario Provincial Police said MILLS was doing chores on his dairy farm on Perth Line 6 about 6: 45 p.m. when there was a problem with the tank.
MILLS used a ladder to climb into the tank to try shutting off a valve and slipped off the ladder into the pit, which contained about 450,000 litres of manure, police said.
"Family members attempted to locate Mr. MILLS, and when they found him in the pit, they pulled him out of the pit and attempted to resuscitate him, but attempts were unsuccessful," said Const. Glen CHILDERLEY.
MILLS was transported to Saint Marys Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Saturday, police were called to a report of a man crushed under a cultivator at 3: 30 p.m. on Duke Street in Brunner.
Police said KIPFER/KUEPFER had rented a shop to work on the cultivator and was under it when the hydraulic bottle jack gave out, pinning KIPFER/KUEPFER.
A friend stopped by the shop, found KIPFER/KUEPFER and called emergency services.
Emergency crews arrived at the scene but were unable to revive KIPFER/KUEPFER, who was pronounced dead at the scene by a coroner.
DE VRIES said many farm-related injuries and deaths occur during the spring planting or fall harvest because of the workload.
"When the weather's nice and you've got a lot of work to do, it's go, go, go," said DE VRIES, who operates a poultry farm in Elma Ward in northern Perth.
"A lot of it comes down to maybe making short cuts. But you've still got to use common sense."

Carl will be sorely missed by his grandchildren, Erin ASHENHURST, Corinn SMITH and her husband Paul, along with their daughters Hayleigh and Makenna, and by his grand_son, Rob. To his nieces and nephews, his great-nieces and nephews and their children, Carl represented a wise, generous, humourous and kind 'head of the clan' and he will be long grieved. Carl started life in Goodwood, in Uxbridge Township, Ontario and worked his first paid job at the age of 7, weeding carrots for $0.10 an hour. He was a gifted athlete, excelling particularly in hockey and lacrosse. He started working as a bookkeeper in New Brunswick at the age of 19 and worked his way up through the mining industry to top executive positions in mines such as Heath Steele Mines, Mattagami Lake Mines, Stanley Uranium and Noranda Mines. During this time he helped to raise his family and became a Chartered Accountant. He ended his employment with Noranda as Vice President, Finance. After retiring for a year or so, Carl then started working on the financing of the Blackdome Mine in British Columbia. As President and Chief Executive Officer of Blackdome Mine, he and his team built and brought the gold mine into full production in record time, a culmination of all that he had garnered in his 40+ years in the mining industry of Canada. Carl had a wide circle of close Friends and loved a game of golf, a game of cards and especially a long chin-wag. Most of all Carl loved his family both related and extended. He leaves behind many precious lessons and we absorbed those lessons by his example. Work hard. Play harder. Love hardest. Our sincere thanks to the staff on Kent at Billings Court Manor who eased his journey to the end. Visitation at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street, (one block north of City Hall) Burlington (905-632-3333) on Wednesday from 3-5 and 7-9 p.m., where Funeral Service will be held Thursday, March 13, 2008, at 11: 00 a.m. Interment Springcreek Cemetery, Mississauga.

GROOME, Agnes Jean (née MILLS)
Passed away peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in Toronto on May 30, 2008. She was born November 5, 1918 on the family farm near Fleming, Saskatchewan. Eldest daughter of Sam and Isabelle MILLS, Agnes was predeceased by her husband Leslie Jaquest GROOME, her parents, her sister Ivy SMITH, brothers-in-law Paul GROOME, Al SMITH, Bob SMITH, and sister-in-law Iris MILLS. She is survived by her brother Reuben MILLS, her sister Isabelle MILLS, daughters Jean COOPERBERG (Peter), Ruth KURTZ, Mary KAINER (Michael), seven grandchildren Ruthie SHUGARMAN (Danny,) Michael COOPERBERG, Daniel KURTZ (Martina SORBARA), Thiago KURTZ (Andrea BREEN), Anton KAINER, Leah KAINER and Lindsay KAINER, and her 3 great-grandchildren Talia and Cooper SHUGARMAN and Francesca KURTZ. Also important to her were nieces Gae MILLER, Vivian PALSSON, Ariel GROOME and nephews Alan MILLS and Byron MILLS (deceased) and their families. Dr. Reverend Agnes GROOME was a woman of remarkable energy and organizational skills. An accomplished educator and minister, she was highly educated, earning seven degrees in seven decades (B.A., B.Ed., B.Div., M.A., M.Ed., Ph.D., M.Div.). Involved in life-long learning, she took her last course at the University of Regina at the age of 88. Her teaching positions included Central Collegiate (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan), Martin and Sheldon Williams Collegiate (Regina, Saskatchewan), University of Regina, and University of Toronto. Her church postings included mission fields in rural Saskatchewan, Saint_James United Church (Regina), Grace Church in Moose Jaw, St. Andrew's (Toronto), Silverthorne (Toronto), and a short locum in Ft. Qu'appelle. A woman ahead of her time, St. Andrew's College refused her ordination and her name was struck from the roster of graduates because she had married and was expecting her first child. Agnes always took a leadership role in community organizations including the Young Women's Christian Association, United Nations Association, University Women's Club, Health Research Board, Saskatchewan Pension Committee, New Democratic Party (candidate in Wascana), plus many church positions including Sunday School Superintendent, Elder (first female in position at Lakeview United Church). Agnes was honoured to have been appointed by the government of Saskatchewan to the Cluff Lake Inquiry into uranium development. As recent as two years ago, Agnes embarked on a project to have stained glass windows honouring women in the Bible installed in Lakeview United Church. As part of her dedication to education in Saskatchewan, Agnes established several scholarship funds at the University of Regina in the names of her husband Les GROOME, her brother-in-law Paul GROOME, her parents Sam and Isabelle, and plus made a generous donation to the University of Regina establishing the Groome family fellowship in health research. Agnes and Les were a remarkable team; through all their studies, travels, and endeavours they loved and supported each other. Agnes was a true matriarch in her family. She was the driving force behind family projects; everyone was expected to be onboard and involved. She could do anything and did -- wire a home, build a stone fence, shingle a roof, install floors and siding, build furniture, sew, even bake 12 pies at a time. Agnes tackled everything with passion, including stamp collecting, family tree research (four volumes), and land development. Foreign travels were opportunities to study history and were fodder for lectures. Widowed at 62, she then earned a new degree, and embarked on a new career in a new city. Beloved by her grandchildren, she encouraged them in all their varied interests. Later in life she took great pleasure in building a new home (at age 80) and planting 900 perennials on Pasqua Lake. She knew Canada well as she moved many times: from Fleming to Brandon, Saskatoon, Regina, Dunnville, Guelph, Clinton, Vancouver, Moose Jaw, Regina, and Toronto. Funeral will be held on Thursday, June 5, 2008, 2 p.m., at Wesley United Church, 3913 Hillsdale Street, Regina. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 4, 6-7: 30 p.m. at Speers Funeral Chapel 2136 College Avenue, Regina. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sam and Bella Mills Scholarship, University of Regina.
