Daughter of Israel and Sarah Davidson; mother of Carol (Peter Rosenthal) and Ian (Georgina Wilcock); grandmother of Daniel, Esther, Sarah, and David.
Predeceased in 1963 by her beloved husband, Dave Kitai.
Widowed early with no income and two young children, she completed her teaching qualification, and then went on to teach high school history and raise her children with determination, selflessness and great courage. A dedicated teacher for twenty years in Johannesburg, she is still remembered by many students with admiration. She actively fostered critical thinking when it was officially discouraged. As an avid learner, she returned to university after her retirement to complete a further education in the emerging field of gifted education, and embarked on a second career as a consultant. She had an amazing work ethic and always strove for near perfection, however small the task. She was invariably honest, smart and brave. She will always be an inspiration to her children and grandchildren, who stand proudly on the firm ground that has been prepared by years of her grit, values and love.
Thank you to her devoted caregivers Marites, Mercedita, and Tiblez and to Dr. Katja Heineck.

HELEN JEAN LONG (nee Crowther)
Surrounded by her family, Jean died on April 13, 2018, at the age of 80. She was born in Toronto, attended Havergal College and graduated from Victoria College at University of Toronto. A lifelong Torontonian, proud and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Jean was married for 58 years to Stephen Long; mother to Mary Eleanor, Stephanie (Greg), and Alex (Neel); and grandmother to Hannah and Thomas. Her sister, Mary Thompson predeceased her.
Whether through cross-Canada camping adventures, visiting her children in far-flung places, global travel with Stephen and friends, or spending time at her beloved schoolhouse, Jean's caring, loving and adventurous spirit was always in evidence. She was a keen sportswoman and was at various times a champion runner, swim team captain, badminton and tennis player, jazz dancer, and more recently, aquafit aficionado.
Her strong Christian values and urge to help others led to a life of volunteerism - Brownies and Girl Guides, Delisle Youth Services, Churches-on-the-Hill food bank and especially with her church family, at Calvin Presbyterian Church. Later in life, she enjoyed a second career teaching adult high school to new Canadians.
Her retirement party was a large gathering, attended by many students who had been touched by her passion, hard work and dedication. But Jean's family was always her biggest source of pride and joy.
The family will receive friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles - Newbigging Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville Avenue) from 2:00 - 4:00 and 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. on Friday, April 20th. A funeral service will be held in Calvin Presbyterian Church, 26 Delisle Avenue on Saturday, April 21st, at 2:00 p.m. If desired, contributions in Helen's memory may be made to the Churcheson-the-Hill Foodbank (http://www.cothfoodbank.ca). Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through http://www.humphreymilesnewbigging.com.
LINDA RANKIN 1946 - 2018
In hospital in Ottawa, Ontario on April 3, 2018.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Linda Rankin, on April 3. Linda was born in Foam Lake, Saskatchewan on June 16, 1946 and predeceased by her parents, Cliff and Isabel (née Deacon) Rankin. She graduated from the University of Regina and headed to Toronto and ultimately Ottawa. Although she lived in the nation's capital for more than 40 years, Linda always described herself as 'just a prairie girl.' Linda will be forever loved and missed by her adoring husband of 23 years, Guy Houdin; and the Houdin family in France; especially sons, Jon and Alex; by her three cherished brothers and the wives she considered sisters, Stuart Rankin and Johanne L'Heureux (London), Wayne Rankin and Terry Rutherford (Sarnia), and Doug and Coleen Rankin (Regina); her generous cousin, Cathy Deacon; her treasured nieces and nephews and their families, Adam, Amy, Benjamin, Carter-Ethan, Jennifer, Megan, and Steven; and by the numerous, thankful friends from all walks of her life.
Those who crossed her path were drawn to Linda's warmth, adventurous spirit, grace, empathy, determination, and to her positive outlook on life; these traits served her, and those around her, well as she dealt during the last three decades with multiple health issues. The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and other medical staff who provided Linda with such excellent care and support over the years, most recently those at the Ottawa Heart Institute, Alive to Strive Kidney Fitness Project, and ICU unit at the Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus.
Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a date to be determined.
Those wishing to honour Linda are asked to register for organ donation and consider a gift to unitedwayottawa.ca, ottawaheart.ca, ohfoundation.ca, or your local SPCA.
A Celebration of Life for Albert Bowron will take place on Saturday, May 12 from 2-5 p.m. Snacks, drink and jazz.
Remarks at 3:30 p.m. All who knew him are welcome.
