And as the thought comes to my mind, A windsong brings a crow, Which lights upon a branch and I’m, To learn what I must know. “It’s time”, she says, “for you to fly” You’ve been given many a feather,Try out your wings and touch the sky,You’ve long lost any tether. Leave all the sorrows of long past days,All wounds have healed, now turn your gaze,There is no risk of falling.Remember that it’s me the crow,Who’s helped you find your wings,You finally found a place to rest,And are at peace with all it brings.

BELSITO, WALTER J. Thursday, March 31, 2011 -- 63, beloved husband of Lynda, quietly passed away on March 31, 2011 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario with family by his side. Born in the Sault on August 29, 1947 to Anthony and Helen Belsito, he was one of four brothers. In his early years, he spent time at the family cottage on St. Joseph Island, which always held a special place in his heart. A natural at sports, he excelled in high jump and basketball. He attended Sir James Dunn where he developed an interest in the literary world and began his love of creative writing that continued throughout his life. He continued his education studying English Literature at Carleton University, where he also married his high school sweetheart Lynda (Day) and began a family. Always adventurous spirits, Walter and Lynda moved to Papua New Guinea with their young family to teach, learn and explore. Moving back to Canada, Walter received an education degree from Lakehead University. Eventually they settled on a beautiful piece of property in Laird Township, a place they considered their special retreat, filled with nature, quiet and beauty. Through his teaching, Walter touched the hearts and minds of many students and coworkers in the Sault, St. Joseph Island, Bruce Mines and Thessalon. He taught elementary students in both French and English, eventually becoming principal at Thessalon Public School. Outside of work, Walter loved to create. With Lynda, he painted, sketched, played guitar and sang, wrote stories, took photographs, imagined and dreamed, inspiring their three children Christopher, Tierney and Daniel. He was a doting papa to Andrew, Kayleigh, Cameron and Coralynn. He spent as much time as possible with family, taking them camping at Pancake Bay, where he would spend hours floating in Lake Superior's waves. Even after being diagnosed with ALS and struggling with the disease, his creative spirit never wavered. He used adaptive technology to create and write. Always political in nature, Walter published his first book, Harper's New Clothes, a collection of poetry analyzing and critiquing Canadian politics in 2007. He continued writing, completing a second collection of more personal and reflective poetry that will be published posthumously. Walter will be greatly missed by his wife Lynda; his children Christopher (Leslie), Tierney and Daniel (Kristen), his grandchildren Andrew, Kayleigh, Cameron and Coralynn; his brothers Larry (Tania), Tony (Rose), David, his special Uncle Walter Phillips (Lynn), other aunts, uncles and cousins; his sister-in-laws Karen (late Bruce) and Kristin (John), his nieces and nephews Valerie, Derik, Cheri, Crystal, Anthony Jr., Shannon, Robert, Jacqueline, Paul, Mark, Travis, Spencer, Leigh (Bug), Christina and Jennifer, friends and acquaintances alike. Walter was appreciative of the amazing caregivers at the F.J. Davey Home, Red Cross and Bayshore, all of whom he began to appreciate like family. Walter should be remembered for his quiet and caring nature, quirky humour, youthful embrace of life, intellect, love of nature, expansive imagination and his absolute dedication to his wife and family. He lived his life with strength, dignity and grace. Memorial donations to A.L.S. Ontario Equipment Pool or the Davey Home Walkway to Health would be appreciated by the family.

Joe was an active member of the community, serving until his passing as Emergency Measures Co-ordinator for the region. He was also an esteemed partner & opponent at the Island’s weekly Bridge games. One of the highlights of Joe’s retired life was clearing land on the shores of Lake Huron, where he and Ghislaine built a rustic cabin and later their retirement home.   This is a special place where he will live on forever, where Ghislaine will continue his legacy, and where his family can be with him, walking along the lakeshore or amongst the trees.  Joe did not like fuss, and in honour of his desire for simplicity, we will come together on Tuesday October 27, at Joe and Ghislaine’s homestead on St. Joe’s, from 1:00 PM to enjoy some of his favorite things, a glass of wine with friends and family, egg salad sandwiches on white bread, and buttertarts.    “It’s all about Joe.” Dress is casual; plaid and track pants are encouraged, good outdoor shoes required.  Our heartfelt thanks to the health care professionals who treated him with compassion and gentleness.  In lieu of flowers, a donation to ARCH (Algoma Regional Community Hospice) would be appreciated.

Davey Home. She had been pre-deceased by her spouse, Howard Burch, her infant son Michael, her parents Margaret and William Rumley, her sisters Janet Sigurdson, May Radford, Yvonne Vardi, Nelda Armstrong, and her brothers Orton, Roy, and Jim Rumley .She is survived by her one remaining sister, Sheila Marshall, and her family as listed below. We know that Mom will always be watching over her many nieces and nephews, her seven children and their spouses, her 22 grandchildren, her 34 great grandchildren, and her 6 great-great grandchildren: Shannon (John) Mcleod: Erin McLeod, Scott (Shannon) McLeod. Alistair, Liam. Michael Burch (Deceased). Dianne (Norbert) Wagner: Michael Dickson (Jennifer), Tanya, Maddison, Mackenzie, Schyler, Kristina, Andrew, Wendy Wagner Hubley (Bud Pelkowski), Lacey, Lucy, Daniel Hubley, Dwayne Wagner (Tam), Madison, Hunter,  Randy Burch (Valerie): Shaune Lowry (deceased), Sascha,   Jessica (Mario) Porporo, Emma, Ella, Charlie, Henry,  (Shirley Morely): Obadiah David (Joslynn) Burch, Mya, Joseph Burch.

Before suffering from a rare viral encephalitis while still in her early fifties, which compromised her cognition but definitely strengthened her spirit, Margaret had worked for many years in Obstetrics as a Health Care Aid. Coming from an extremely musical family, she sang beautifully and played the piano, violin, guitar, mandolin and harmonica. She also loved to write poetry. Although usually somewhat bashful, Mom frequently broke into song, and was often invited to sing for her fellow residents at the Davey Home. Raised on and around the lighthouses of Manitoulin, she loved plants and gardening, marveled at every blade of grass, constantly collected special stones, and was especially fascinated by the sound and movement (bouncing) of trees and water. Following her significant brain injury she leaned ever -harder on her Lord, and her resourceful, uniquely creative and fiercely independent problem solving has continuously astounded and inspired us all!  We wish to thank the wonderful staff of Birch Lane 1, particularly nurse Penny Leishman who has been Mom's own personal angel over these many years. We treasure as well the many dedicated P.S.W.'s, R.P.N.'s, R.N.'s, and especially the cleaning staff!  Thank you so much for helping Mom "Just Be Mom"! A big thank-you to the hard-working women in the kitchen and laundry too!  We so appreciate all who work to provide activities for the residents and we are grateful for the Chaplains who gently provide ongoing encouragement and spiritual guidance. Our tender blessings are upon all those who give so freely of their time to work in the "Tuck Shop". It is wonderful to have a place to gather for two hours every day to enjoy one another's company.  And let us not forget about the wonderful entertainment that is regularly provided, be it country or 60's music, choirs, sing-a-longs or bingo. God Bless You All! Cremation has taken place. Reverend Janice Frame officiating. In Lieu of flowers, Memorial donations in honour of the F.J. Davey Home Resident's Council or to St. Andrews United Church in Silver Water.

The late Mrs. Cooper was born in London, Ont., the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Brown, in the year 1873. She came with her parents to the island when six year old, settling to Milford Haven. For some time she taught at Jocelyn School and then, in August, 1894, united in marriage to Charles F. Cooper, who predeceased her 14 years ago. Her mar­ried life was spent on the farm at Harmony where she resided until the time of her death.  The Presbyterian Church at Harmony was erected about the time of her marriage and in 1896 she became its organist. This post she filled faithfully and well for the long period of 52 years. During the half century of her association with the church she devoted her musical talent and her gift for leadership to main­taining the church life in the community, and all the while she was bringing up a family of four daughters and one son. Her fam­ily have followed her in their love of music and devotion to church work. Mrs. Cooper has a charter member of the Kentvale Wo­men's Institute which was formed in 1905. She took a leading part in Sunday School work and main­tained real interest in all chil­dren of her community until the end.  One daughter, Blanche (Mrs. Duncan Brown) predeceased her in 1947. She is survived by three other daughters, Marguerita (Mrs. Ira Holmes) of Richards Land­ing; Helene, wife of Dr. James C. Hill of Orillia and Edith (Mrs. Earl Axworthy) of St. Joseph Township; and by one son, Brown Cooper at the home farm. She also leaves 11 grandchildren and one great grand child. In addi­tion there survive her sister, Mrs. Emily M. Kent, Kentvale; three brothers, Henry Brown of Kentvale, Robert and Alex of Hilton. One sister, Helena (Mrs. John M. Gibbs), predeceased her in 1946.  A private funeral service was held at her home on Tuesday, Jan. 4, followed by public service in Harmony United Church. An overflowing congregation and a profusion of flowers was the church's last tribute to its senior member. Rev. E. Gill officiated paying tribute to deceased long and faithful service and loyalty to her church. Mrs. T. McMas­ter was at the organ and the hymns were "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" and "Abide With Me."

The late Mr. Coulter was an elder in Harmony Presbyterian Church for many years.  For many years also he owned and operated a threshing outfit, which was widely employed in the district.   Noted for his untiring energy, he was actively employed until the last months of his 79 years.  He spent the past summer at the hold homestead at the Encampment, and last winter was with his daughter, Mrs. John Tait at Iron Bridge. Surviving are two sons, Stanley of Echo Bay and Clifton of St. Joseph Island, and one daughter, Nena (Mrs. John Tait) of Iron Bridge.  A sister, Mrs. Letitia Cole, of California also survives.  The late Mrs. Albert Grexton of Richards Landing was also a sister of the deceased.
