BIRTH AND DEATH NOTICES

LINDI BJORNSTAD

Unexpectedly on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Lindi was the beloved wife of Nathan Jacobson; mother to Kat (Katya); sister to Brenda; and aunt to many. Lindi was predeceased by her parents, Jakob and Myra.

Lindi was the kindest most selfless person one could meet. She was a loyal friend to so many and her home was always open to all, both two-and four-legged. She was always there to help people in any circumstance in a nonjudgmental and loving manner. As a human being she was simply magnificent.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her memory to the Toronto Humane Society.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the near future and will be announced in this newspaper.

PAUL ANTHONY FITZPATRICK

Our family is heartbroken to announce the sudden, unexpected passing of our dearly beloved Paul. A father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend.

Paul leaves behind his cherished children, Katherine and Aaron, of whom he was so proud. Paul will be forever loved by parents, Eugene and Christine; sister, Lynn (Phillip); brother, Kevin (Amber); nieces and nephews, Mason, Maggie, and Tessa; aunt, Muriel Madigan (predeceased); and uncles, Larry Fitzpatrick, Alan Thomas, and David Thomas (predeceased). He will be missed by cousins, David, Theresa, Susan, Colleen, Lizanne, and Alexandria.

In the 1980s prior to doing his MBA, Paul created a software business, starting with shareware, originally called APS, right at the beginning of the internet boom.

For twenty years he suffered the results of a badly performed, unsuccessful laser eye treatment that caused him constant pain.

He travelled all over the world seeking a solution. Finding none, his suffering ended abruptly on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at the age of 54.

His life passions were his children, his family, his music, walks on the beach, his pets, golf, carrying the Olympic Torch, technology, cycling and skiing with his loving children, Katherine and Aaron.

Cremation has taken place. A Funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church (19 Viewpoint Ave, Hamilton) on Friday, October 12, 2018 at 11 a.m.

Reception to follow in the parish hall. Burial will then follow at 1:30 p.m. to Mt. Hamilton Cemetery (Rymal Road).

In lieu of flowers, donations to CNIB or Covenant House Toronto in Paul's memory would be appreciated. Online condolences can be made at http://www.dermodys.com.

MARTHA MARY HENDERSON FLAVELLE-SCHRAM

Peacefully at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 in her 71st year.

Martha Mary, precious first daughter of the late James and Daidy (Alcorn) Flavelle. Dearest mother of Kimberley Delius and her son-in-law Rob of Bath, U.K. Reunited with her beloved husband Paul Schram (deceased 1994). Loving and loved sister of Lindsay Richards (Jamie) and Sheila Savage (John Jacques).

Caring and loving aunt of Jay Richards. She will be lovingly remembered by both the Alcorn and Flavelle families. Martha was blessed to have so many incredibly loving, supportive and devoted friends in her life.

Mum was born in Montreal, Quebec and grew up in Galt, Ontario (Cambridge). She had an outstanding, thirty-five year career at Sunnybrook Hospital where she thrived; culminating her work as Administrative Assistant to now retired Dr. Barry McLellan, Director of Emergency Services, Base Hospital Program (Paramedic Program) and Trauma Research.

While in Toronto, Mum was an active member of the Junior League and Garden Club. After her retirement she returned to Galt to enjoy her home, her garden, her friends, her painting and her avid interest in reading biographies, history books and novels. She was also dedicated to the daily news and the weather forecast! Mum was our family historian; she could relate stories about distant and current members of the family, on both sides. Mum lived a selfless life with dignity, grace and humour; words cannot describe how deeply she will be missed. Martha's life will be celebrated with a Visitation at the T. Little Funeral Home, 223 Main Street, Cambridge (519-623-1290) on Sunday, October 14, 2018 from 2 - 4 p.m. There will be a private family service and interment. As expressions of sympathy, please consider a donation in Martha's memory to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
