ARNOLD, Jack (November 15, 1921-February 24, 2008)
It is in the spirit of my love for him that I recognize the passing of my beloved father, Jack ARNOLD on February 24, 2008 at Victoria Hospital, London, Ontario at the age of 86 years. Jack was predeceased by his parents, George and Kit ARNOLD; his brothers George and Bob ARNOLD; his sister Joan VENTIN; his son Robert Ian ARNOLD his step-grand_son, Bart and his wives Florence (née KENNEDY) and Kathleen (née McDOUGAL.)

Additionally, he is survived by his daughters Argena (Bonnie) BERNE of Stelle, Illinois; Lynn JOHNSON of Dawson Creek, British Columbia; Kathleen HAMILL of Ft. Fraser, British Columbia and his step-daughter Beth BORIS as well as 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Clearly, Jack emerged as a self-made man who lived an extraordinary life. Valued for the insights and optimism he shared with others, he was distinguished by his particular focus on self-discipline, love, freedom and trust. Characterized by his use of reason and creative innovation throughout his many careers, he was held in respect by many, especially in business matters. Jack served in his youth as a member of the Royal Scottish Regiment in World War 2 (1940-1945). During the past 6 years, he lived in Parkwood Hospital, London, until his death on Sunday last. A memorial service will be held at 1: 30 pm., Thursday, March 6, 2008 at the Church of the Good Shepherd at Parkwood Hospital to acknowledge the deep sadness and heartfelt loss of his presence in our lives. Expressions of sympathy may be made at that time.

WATT, John Russell
Peacefully on July 22, 2008 in his 83rd year, with his son by his side, John Russell 'Johnny' WATT leaves behind his wife of 53 years, Tess and his son Norm of Toronto, his sister-in-law Edna (Robert ARNOLD d.1979) of Montreal, and her children Audrey (Godin) and nephews Melvin, Bobby and John and their extended families.
He was the third child born in Ville St. Pierre in 1925 to Henry and Janet WATT (née BOYD.) Following the untimely deaths months apart in 1927 of his father and his 9 year old brother Douglas, John's mother struggled to keep her two remaining sons (older brother Arnold) with her while she worked to support the family. She often took in boarders to help pay rent, while working nights cleaning at the Raleigh bicycle factory in Montreal. John spent his childhood between their first floor flat on Rue du Couvent, his mother's relatives in Worcester, Massachusetts, and with Uncle Alec BOYD in Lachine who all helped to raise and shape him during the Depression years.
At the young age of 12 John was already a 'rink rat' at the Forum, where he witnessed the longest game in National Hockey League history between his beloved Maroons and Detroit, and got his hide tanned for coming home at 2 a.m. As a young hockey player himself, he was proud to have been a childhood team mate of Doug Harvey in both hockey and softball. His love of sports stayed with him his whole life, whether it be watching les Canadiens conquer the world of hockey with their numerous Stanley Cup victories, taking in a game at Delormier stadium watching Jackie Robinson's season with the Montreal Royals, or enjoying his season tickets at Percival Molson stadium for the great Alouette teams of the 50's. He made a devoted sports fan of his son, who remembers Jr. Canadiens games at the Forum, major league baseball at Fenway Park, the 'new' Shea Stadium in 1964, seeing the World Cup Champions from England play soccer at Expo '67 and childhood afternoons playing golf with the 'old guys' at BeauChateau golf course on the south shore. Norm still plays baseball and hockey with the passion he learned from his father who was the consummate fan. One of his great thrills was to take his Dad to the 1st World Series game played in Canada in 1992.
John began working at Dominion Engineering Works (a subsidiary of GE) in Lachine as a floor sweeper at the age of 16. He stayed for 42 years, retiring as the General Foreman of Shop 1 with over 200 staff, a pretty big accomplishment for a little guy from Ville St. Pierre who never finished grade 9 at Montreal High. The only time he left was a short two years overseas beginning in 1944 to 1946 to be trained in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a tail gunner on Lancaster bombers.
Once back from the war, he would spend time at the Scandinavian Club dances with his buddy Jimmy Manley who was the bartender there. That's where he met Jeanne Newton and her younger sister Tess OBODOFSKY (a couple of young women from a Lithuanian family in Ville Emard). John and Tess were married in 1955 and set up a small shop on Rue St. Jacques, John's Handy Store, where they lived in two rooms at the back with their son. Through this time, John became the official chronicler of the family history through the eyes of the 8mm movie camera where he captured the Cousins' and Norman's early years on film.
After five years of working days at the machine shop supervising the building of turbines for the burgeoning Hydro stations in northern Quebec, and evenings at the store, John and Tess were able to save enough to move the family to their dream house in Dorval in March of 1961.
As an active member of the Masonic fraternity (St. George's Lodge, #440) John took his volunteering seriously and was committed to his duties of hospital visiting and representing the Lodge at Brothers' funerals, offering support to grieving family members. He was considered by many to be both thrifty and a wise financial planner, long before many knew what an Registered Retirement Savings Plan was. His memories of childhood poverty stayed with him, even when memory loss became a serious daily challenge. His skills in retirement planning and investing were in constant demand from family, Friends and even his own colleagues at the shop. Just before taking ill with pneumonia for the first time in 2004, John at 78 years young, acted as Executor for an old friend in the Brockville area.
In 1989, once both he and Tess had retired, they moved to Toronto to be closer to their son, settling in Guildwood which reminded them of their West Island home of 28 years.
Tess and Norm would like to extend warm thanks to the staff of Rockcliffe (Scarborough) and Lakeshore Lodge (Etobicoke) for their caring attitudes and above and beyond service in the last two years of John's life. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will take place in Montreal sometime in the fall. In lieu of flowers, Donations to the Baycrest Foundation in support of research and treatment of Alzheimer's disease would be greatly appreciated. http://www.baycrest.org/Donations/default.asp Online condolences can be sent to http://www.ridleyfuneralhome.com/death-notices.htm

ARNOTT, Catherine Anna “Kay” (née BROWN)
Peacefully at Maple View Long-Term Residence in Owen Sound on Thursday February 14, 2008 in her 89th year. “Kay” was born in her mother's home in Owen Sound on December 26, 1919. Beloved wife for sixty-two years of the late Ormond Alfred “Lou” ARNOTT (passed away 2006.) Beloved mother of Bill ARNOTT (Candace BOUCHARD) and Lynda (Don FRITZSCH.)

Growing up during the depression after losing her father to influenza she learned from her mother how to make meals with limited ingredients and unlimited imagination. She knew how to prepare various dishes from local wildlife when food was scarce. Her baking was done with a “pinch of this, a bit of that” and a “you can tell from the feel when it's ready.&rdquo Her favourite beverage was fresh brewed tea with a “blip of milk”. She would talk about growing up in the area with pleasure and a sparkle in her eye. Backing up the old 10th Street West hill in a Model T Ford, or bundling up and going out to Shallow Lake to visit her uncles in the horse drawn sleigh were some of her stories. Her joy as a child was going to Sauble River and spending time fishing and swimming. After high school she attended the Northern School of Business. She learned important skills of the day which included dictation, typing, filing and accounting. She met and married Lou in early 1944 and traveled with him to Truro, Nova Scotia while he was stationed at Camp Debert and while he was in England. After the war ended and Lou was discharged from the forces they returned to Owen Sound to raise their family. She worked for several downtown businesses setting up bookkeeping and accounting systems. Kay worked for the Owen Sound Parks Board and took the job as office manager when the Owen Sound Health Unit was formed in 1963 and stayed until her retirement in 1984. She was a member of the Roselawn Lawn Bowling Club for many years and enjoyed traveling. She volunteered with Red Cross Blood Donation program for many years and was also a member of the Owen Sound Legion Ladies Auxiliary. Coming from pioneering stock she was a pioneer herself.

ARNSBERGER, Ruth Karin
Painter, weaver, adventurer, teacher. Born April 22, 1922, in Haug, Norway. Died January 11 in Wiarton, Ontario, of complications of heart disease, aged 85.
By Ross CALVERT and Lynn KRZYWIECKI, Page L6
An adventurer and accomplished artist, Ruth lived her life with a tireless energy and depth of passion.
Her story can be told from the immense number of sketches, paintings and tapestries she created over her lifetime, from the drawings of her youth through her studies at art school in Norway to the many years that followed. She was recognized internationally for her skills as a designer, weaver and painter, and her work was presented in many exhibitions.
Ruth was born the eldest of three sisters and two brothers. They were close growing up, experiencing the hardships and deprivation of the Depression and the Second World War.
She left Norway, in her own words, "to have an adventure." Eventually she found her way to Colpoy's Bay, Ontario, where she spent nearly 50 years. Here she found love and married Orlo. Until his death in 1988, they maintained and operated Cliffside, a rustic cabin retreat on the shores of Colpoy's Bay. Cliffside was Ruth's beloved home, and she remained there until her death.
Ruth painted in any weather, frequently accompanied by one of her dogs. She sought isolated locations, capturing wind and rain, snow and ice, long-lost buildings and the rocks and cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment.
For more than 20 years she taught weaving part-time at Georgian College. Over the years she donated her art to local fundraising causes and contributed to the preservation of the Bruce Peninsula. One of her proudest accomplishments was her ski shop, which she operated from Cliffside.
Ruth found love a second time with her friend Ross. In the last two decades of her life, their Friendship gave them a cherished companionship. With Ross she was able to maintain Cliffside and enjoy many years of discovery on the Bruce Trail and the Lake Huron and Georgian Bay shorelines.
Ruth treasured her Friends and neighbours. Although she didn't have children of her own, she enjoyed a good relationship with Orlo's daughter, Barbara, and her children. And in spite of the distance between herself and her family in Norway, they had a timeless relationship.
Ruth was a proud and private person, and fiercely independent. Although she could admit to her failing health, she found accepting help from anyone but Ross difficult.
She once said she was never alone because she had her art. It sustained her in difficult times and gave her the will to live until she couldn't hold on any more. Thankfully, she left her spirit immortalized in the places she loved best.
Ross CALVERT is Ruth's friend, and Lynn KRZYWIECKI is Ruth's friend and Ross's daughter.

ARNSPERGER, Ruth
Of Wiarton passed away on Friday, January 11, 2008 in her 86th year. Cherished friend of Ross CALVERT, of Wiarton and dear sister of Rigmor BERG and Karin Marie VALMORK both of Oslo, Norway. She will be sadly missed by her nieces and nephews in Norway as well as her many Friends of the Bruce Peninsula. Ruth was predeceased by her husband Orlo, parents and two brothers. Ruth was a well known artist and a lifetime member of the Tom Thomson Memorial Gallery. Her design of the cairn that now sits in Tobermory at the northern most point of the Bruce Trail is a true testament to her talent.

Along with her husband Orlo, Ruth operated the Cliffside Resort for many years and hosted guests from around the world. She also organized many skiing tours from Canada to her native Norway. There will be no funeral home visitation or service at this time. Cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to the George Funeral Home, Wiarton. Donations made to the Tom Thomson Memorial Gallery would be appreciated by the family as expressions of sympathy. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.georgefuneralhome.com
