ANDREW, Sadie (née COLEMAN)
On Saturday, May 17th, 2008, after a mercifully short and remarkably stoic battle with cancer, Sadie passed away peacefully. She was the adored wife of Archie for almost 64 years; loving mother to Don (Barbara Ann), Brian (Sylvie) and Barbara; and a irrepressible grandmother to Benjamin, Samuel, Jessica and Ross. Sister to Jim COLEMAN of Bangor, N. Ireland (deceased,) Betty McCONNELL of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and June PIDUTTI of Pignano, Italy. Sadie was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. During the war she was a sergeant in the Auxiliary Territorial Service, the women's branch of the British Army. She and Archie had a wartime romance and wedding; five days later, he was on a troop ship to Bombay. Not to be outdone, Sadie volunteered for overseas service and finished out the war in Egypt and Kenya. After the war, with Don only a year old, she joined Archie for new adventures in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). They spent 15 years in that beautiful country and Brian and Barbara were born there. With civil war looming, the intrepid pair left Africa and moved to Canada; first to Montreal and then Mississauga, where they have lived for the past 43 years. Sadie worked for many years as a secretary with the Peel Board of Education, running her school with trademark efficiency and good humour. Sadie was happiest when surrounded by family and Friends. She always liked 'something going on' and adored getting together for fun and conversation. She was an expert teller of tales and her quick wit usually left her listeners helpless with laughter. The lights shone brighter when Sadie was around. A special thanks to the exceptional staff at Beechwood Court and Beechwood Place for their extraordinary care and compassion. The concern, respect and heartfelt feelings they displayed to Sadie and her family leavened this difficult journey. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of her life will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 25, 2008 at Applewood United Church, 2067 Stanfield Road, Mississauga, Ontario. Reception follows at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

SIM, Gordon Edward Royal
(October 4, 1952-March 9, 2008)
Our dear friend Gord passed away peacefully, at home, during his Sunday afternoon nap after a long, courageous and dignified fight against cancer. He was triumphant in the face of inevitable defeat for he valued Friendship above all else, and the value of his Friendships was never more unassailable than at his life's end. Kind, loving, fun, surprising, honest, dedicated, dependable, all those wonderful qualities bundled into one great person. Predeceased by his father and mother, Clarence and Dorothy SIM and nephew Richard REID. He is survived by his sister Patricia REID (Don,) nephew Rod REID (Heather) and their children Parker and Brooklyn; Uncle and Aunt, Ted and Celia GRIGG, cousins Janine LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH (Peter), Kenneth GRIGG (Sue) and Catherine FREIVOKH and their families, and his godchildren: Morgan McCONVILLE, Scott TINDLE, Willie SCOTT, Peter SEHMER, and Taylor JACKSON. Gord had an incredible circle of Friends from every spectrum of his rich life, but in particular his family would like to thank his oldest Friends for their support and care in the last year: John and Mary McCONVILLE, Blake and Dorie POTTINGER, Maud KILLAM, Cathy NOEL, Margaret ROBINSON, Robyn WOODWARD, and Peter ARMSTRONG. The support and love Gord has had from his many Friends in the class of 1970 at St. George's, colleagues from his years in federal politics, and from Friends at Rocky Mountaineer Vacations has been much appreciated. We would also like to thank Doctor John Sehmer, and the physicians and staff of the British Columbia Cancer Agency. Gord's political career began with the Young Conservatives of Canada. He graduated from University of British Columbia - Class of 1974 and worked for many years for the Hon. John Fraser, P.C., O.C., OBC, Q.C. in Ottawa and Vancouver before joining the Rocky Mountaineer Vacations as a train manager for the last 14 years. Gord served on the boards of numerous community organizations and was a life long participant in the campaigns of many civic, provincial and federal candidates. Gord looked as great decked out in his kilt for the Sir John A. MacDonald Society as he did riding with Friends at Douglas Lake. A bit of a George Hamilton, our Gord liked to tan year round either in some exotic local or on the sunny shores of Savary and Gambier Islands. He enjoyed traveling, watching the Canucks, celebrating the achievements of loved ones, and cooking dinner for Friends. He has left us with amazing memories. 'How wonderful life is when you're in the world' surely was written for our Gord. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Gord's memory to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation. A service in memory of Gord will be held at Saint Mary's Anglican Church at 2490 W. 37th in Vancouver on March 25, 2008 at 3: 00 p.m.
