In recognition of his life-long contribution to sport, he was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame last November. Dad will always be remembered with love by his three daughters: Shirley, Dale and Lois, and their families, and by his many friends and the numerous hockey and football players and patients he treated over the years.

GOOD, Jessie (nee Johnson-Baker)- Dec. 24. 1914 - May 14, 2007. It is with sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of Jessie Good at Riverview Health Centre in Winnipeg on May 14, 2007 at the age of 92. Jessie is survived by her son Walter (Roberta) and granddaughters Kelly and Carolyn. She was predeceased by her husband Clayton in 1984. Jessie was born in Jacques Fontaine, Nfld. but spent most of her early life in Grand Bank. She moved to Toronto with Clayton and her son in 1946 but was always a “proud Newfoundlander” and continued to think of Nfld. as “home”, returning to visit relations and friends on numerous occasions. For many years she worked at O.H.I.P. and volunteered for the Red Cross and The Scott Mission. In her spare time she loved going to church, playing cards with friends, reading and doing puzzles. In 2003 she moved to Winnipeg to be closer to her family. Cremation has taken place and her remains will be interred along with her husband Clayton at Beechwood Cemetery in Toronto in a private ceremony. The family wishes to sincerely thank the staff of CD2 at Riverview for their kindness, compassion and friendship to Jessie over the past three years.

WHELAN, Scott (Scotty) James- 1981-2007. Scotty was unexpectedly taken from us on May 19, 2007 at the age of 25 years doing what he loved in natures elements, rock climbing at Mount Lorette in Kananaskis, Alberta. Scotty was born November 6, 1981 and raised in St. John’s, NL. At the age of 16, he moved to Olds, Alberta to begin the adventure of creating a life for himself. At the age of 20, Scotty returned to Newfoundland where he remained for two years. His love for Alberta brought him back to Olds once again, where he resided with his cousin Renee (Jerry Petten) Coffin, and happily lived out the remainder of his life. At the time of his passing, Scotty was employed as a foreman with Li’l Shaver Inc. of Olds. Our memories shall hold dear Scotty’s ever smiling face, and fun loving and free spirit. We were taught simple and important life lessons about kindness and being a friend. Scotty always did his best to do whatever he could to help out another person in need. Scotty leaves behind his loving family in St. John’s, NL. He will be sadly missed by his parents Doris and Albert Whelan; his grandmother Marion Fagan; two sisters: Tammy (Scott) Hobbs and Amanda (Jason) Newman; two nieces: Megan and Madison and two nephews: Justin and Mitchell.
