BOURGEOIS, Freda
Wife, mother, oma, aunt, friend, entrepreneur, volunteer, hostess extraordinaire. Born January 27, 1927, near Starbuck, Manitoba Died October 28 in Ottawa of endometrial cancer, aged 80.
By Paulette BOURGEOIS and Natalie URQUHART and Gordon URQUHART, Page L6
Freda BOURGEOIS lived life large with big ideas, big hugs and a big freezer full of baking ready to share with family and Friends or anyone who happened to drop by.
Her determination - some might say stubbornness - was forged during the Depression. Freda was only 6 when her mother died. Her father, a stern, pious, Russian Mennonite homesteader, soon married the widow from the next farm. The family now numbered eight, and Freda did her chores, helped feed the farm hands and scrubbed the floors.
Freda was born with crossed eyes. The family couldn't afford medical care and by the time she had surgery, her right eye was blind and reading was a challenge. This only made her more tenacious.
In a favourite "olden-days" story told to her grandchildren, she refused to accept that at Mennonite school only boys raced. Freda rolled down her socks, tucked her skirt into her bloomers and ran, as she said, like the wind. She won.
Freda left the farm at 17 and headed to Winnipeg, where she worked at Moore's Business Forms. In the summer of 1947, she caught the eye of her girlfriend's date at the roller rink. Matt and Freda married two years later.
She worked as a cashier at Safeway while Matt finished a commerce degree and became a chartered accountant. With two daughters, the family followed Matt's career in the federal government, living in Winnipeg, Calgary, Ottawa and Beaconsfield, Quebec Freda became an accomplished seamstress, milliner, Girl Guides leader and adult educator. Avid square-dancers, the couple do-si-doed across Canada.
In Beaconsfield, Freda joined forces with Myfanwy Sinclair to start Bouclair House of Fabrics. The successful business was work and fun. When it was sold and Freda followed Matt back to Ottawa, she began Freda's Sewing Services.
Matt "retired" in 1982 to Haiti, and later Jamaica, as a tax adviser, and Freda plunged into these worlds. They returned to Canada in 1997.
The grandchildren remember their oma for her cinnamon buns on Christmas mornings, back tickles, foot rubs, handmade quilts, her love of leopard prints, scary driving (she was foot-to-the-floor and blind in one eye), big rings and even bigger hugs.
At the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Hospital, she brought food and comfort to cancer patients even while she was ill.
One doctor said Freda was the most elegant sick lady he knew. On her last day, Freda painted her nails, put on red lipstick, smiled and said goodbye. She promised Matt she'd leave a forwarding address.
Paulette BOURGEOIS is Freda's daughter, and Natalie and Gordon URQUHART are her grandchildren.

URQUHART, Ronald George
Adventurer, veterinarian, chef, volunteer, consummate family man. Born August 17, 1938, in Wainwright, Alberta. Died February 16 in Toronto of an infection, aged 69.
By Diana URQUHART, Page L6
As a teen, Ron was a paperboy, stocked grocery shelves and worked at a plant nursery. But working as a trail guide at Arrowhead horse ranch near Collingwood, Ontario, was best of all.
He bought a red, 16-foot Peterborough canoe with his first major paycheque; that canoe still hangs from the beams in the family room. When Ron was outdoors, being challenged and spending time with others, he was happy.
After graduating from the University of Guelph's Ontario Veterinary College in 1962, Ron worked in Saskatchewan in animal husbandry. In 1963, he married Diana PATTERSON, whom he had met on campus in Guelph. Four children quickly followed: Karen, Susan, David and Brent. To be at home more he turned to pathology, eventually helping design and manage a new government laboratory in Regina.
In 1970, the Ontario government headhunted Ron to help draft and manage the Animals for Research Act. He found himself commuting in a suit to endless indoor meetings. The federal government seconded him to observe the Canadian seal hunt; the people, animals and environment fascinated him. In time he happily demoted himself to inspector of the Toronto Zoo, universities and horse camps. At 54, he retired. So much to do, so little time.
Life was never dull. Who could forget the white van he converted for camping trips and its successor, a green school bus, that took the family across Canada, coast to coast. Ron always preferred a tent to a fancy hotel, and their home was often filled with guests.
In retirement Ron completed a cooking diploma, instructed aquafit classes, led Bruce Trail hikes and guided backpacking expeditions in Peru, the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon. Travels with Diana included Antarctica, the Arctic, Australasia, the Queen Charlotte Islands, China and India. They could travel light but their home filled with souvenirs - a didgeridoo, antique snowshoes, ancestral pictures.
Ron delighted in his collapsible kayak, his GPS and his iPod. Working part-time at Mountain Equipment Co-op, he spent twice what he earned there on what his children called "Dad's gear and toys." Passions came and went - house renovations, photography, winemaking. He went to golf school in Florida so often the school dedicated a week in his honour when he died. A recent passion was genealogy: Ron traced his roots to John URQUHART, a shoemaker in Canada in 1833, and then went to Scotland to find more relatives.
The family, six grandkids included, camped together last summer at Silent Lake, Ontario We hear him still: "Try it. Do it. You can." And we shall.
Diana URQUHART is Ron's wife.

McKAY, Ann
Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, world traveller, singer, conversationalist, humorist. Born August 17, 1907, in Aberdeen, Scotland. Died February 5 in Toronto of old age, aged 100.
By Georgina ABELA and Nellemarie HYDE, Page L6
Ann Urquhart Davies Clyne McKAY lived for 50 years in Aberdeen and 50 years in Toronto.
Early life wasn't easy for Ann, known as Annie. Her mother, Mary CLYNE, lost her leg at 4 when she was run over by a horse and cart, yet she managed to raise Annie and her two sisters (a third sister died at eight months old.) Hugh URQUHART, Annie's father, was a Gordon Highlander who fought in the Boer War.
Annie married Frank McKAY in her teens and gave birth to four children: Nan, Francis, Hugh and Ronald. Sadly, she was widowed at the age of 47. Two years later, she and Ronald immigrated to Canada.
Those first years in Toronto were difficult for Annie and Ron, having no job skills or family nearby. Annie moved between jobs, then was delighted to be hired by Connaught Laboratories, where she remained a devoted employee, sterilizing lab equipment, until her retirement.
Motivated by a strong desire to visit her son Francis in New Zealand, Annie babysat in the evenings for extra money to pay the fare. She was forever grateful to the travel agent who advised her to go by ship from San Francisco on a world cruise, calling in at all the exotic places she never thought she would see. She got off the ship at one port in Japan, travelled with a fellow passenger the length of the country by train and caught up with the boat at another port. While staying several months with her son and his family, Annie worked in a dress shop to help finance more travel in New Zealand. One of the highlights of her trip was joining a much younger group of people to walk the arduous Milford Track.
Annie loved singing old Scottish songs and hymns. She was quick-witted and funny, and always lightened the mood. Who could forget her description of bathing without a bathtub in Scotland: "First you wash down as far as possible, then you wash up as far as possible, and then you wash possible."
Although she wasn't happy about compulsory retirement, Annie travelled when she could, returning twice to New Zealand, to Scotland many times, and to Florida every year. She had 13 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Annie loved to walk through her neighbourhood. In her 80s, while out on her daily walk, she was hit by a car. With both legs and her pelvis broken, the prognosis wasn't good. The doctors didn't think she would survive surgery, and didn't operate for three days. But survive she did, and lived to travel more, to Scotland, London, Paris and Daytona Beach, Florida Despite several small strokes in her 90s, Annie celebrated her 100th birthday surrounded by family and Friends.
Georgina ABELA and Nellemarie HYDE are Annie's cousins.

URSELL, Irene
Beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, died in the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 18, 2008. She was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, on January 20, 1917, into a Scottish-Italian family of nine children. She was particularly close to her sisters Grace and Anne. She married Barry URSELL on April 2, 1942, and they were kept apart in the early years of their marriage because of World War 2. They celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary last July with family and Friends and would have celebrated their 66th anniversary in a few weeks. Family members were with her when she died, all of them listening to her favorite music. Irene devoted much of her life to raising seven children, Geoffrey (Barbara); Greg (Marilyn) and their children, Stephanie and Michael Gary (Helen), and their children Meaghan and Emily; Patricia Kathy (Ted), and their children Melissa, Matthew, and Meredith Janice; and George (Joanne), and their children Jennifer, Shaun, Bryan, and Robert. They will always remember and treasure her encouragement and love. Her children particularly recall the work she did to make their summer holidays in Waskesiu memorable. Somehow, Irene found time to volunteer with both the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire and the Things Shop of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Women's Committee. She was an active member of Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire for over fifty years, serving in many roles, including Provincial Regent. She was a Lifelong Member at both provincial and national levels. Her love of ballet and music pervaded her life. Perhaps, she got her enthusiasm for opera from her Italian heritage. A particular highlight was seeing Leontyne Price at Covent Garden. In a previous life, she recently said, she imagined she had been an opera singer in a next life, she imagined being a visual artist. She loved to draw. She also partnered her husband in mixed doubles in badminton, winning Saskatchewan Provincial Championships. And she was a passionate bowler, active into her sixties. She played hearts, bridge, cribbage, and Scrabble intensely- and she didn't take losing easily. Irene's family would like to thank Doctor David Szwajcer and nurse Jennifer Fisher-Cote for their compassionate care. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 22, at 11: 00 a.m. at Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway in Winnipeg.
Friends wishing to celebrate her memory may make donations to the Canadian Wildlife Federation at 1-800-563-9453 or 350 Michael Cowpland Drive, Kanata, Ontario K2M 2W1 or the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, 175 Bloor Street E., Suite 700, North Tower Toronto, Ontario M4W 3R8.
