DALLIMORE, Margaret A. (nee Downton) - Passed peacefully with her family in Victoria B.C. Born in St. John's, Newfoundland, Margaret married her first love Ray in June 1945, thereby uniting two families deeply rooted in pre-confederation Canada and Newfoundland history. Margaret's passions and the foundation of her life were her family, friends and church. In particular, many children's lives were touched by her remarkable gifts as a caregiver. She was a famously gracious and elegant hostess, and a cook par excellence to the delight of all who were welcomed to her table, and there were many. Margaret was a founding member of St Aidan's Anglican Church in Ottawa where she will be fondly remembered by Father Whitten and the congregation.
Her memory will remain forever a comforting center for the beloved and loving family she leaves behind; Ray, her husband of 59 years; daughter Judith Thompson and Bruce in St. Albert; daughter Barbara LeBel and Marc in Ottawa; son Scott and Audrey in Sidney. Grandchildren David, Anne, Josee, Brent and Karen were her special joy and will miss her deeply. Margaret was pre-deceased by brothers Arthur and Albert and is lovingly remembered in Newfoundland by brothers Alister and Harrison and especially by sister June Titford and her husband Bill who sadly passed away the same day as Margaret. Special thanks for the tender loving care of Margaret in the last years of her life by sisters-in-law Helen and Dorothy, dear friend Olga Byrnes and the staffs of Norgarden, Island View and Broadmead Lodge. Many lifelong friends were blessed with her love and care and she will especially be missed by the Byrnes, Wade, Racine, Heath, Gordon, Dixon, Griffith, Titford, Nicholson and Dallimore families.
Margaret was the quintessential woman of elegance and character of her times, and we will perhaps not see her like again. Rest in peace Margaret, Mom, Grandma, how we miss you.

TOMS, Arthur William - Passed away on October 18, 2004, Arthur William Toms, aged 92 of La Scie. Husband of Betty (Elizabeth March) for 54 years, and father of Max, Larry, Elaine and Karen, and grandfather of Carolyn (pre-deceased), Michael, Eric, Amy, Christopher and Robert. He was pre-deceased by his father, Jonathan and mother, Lydia (Shepherd), his four brothers, Ross, Max, Eric, Bert, and sister Phyllis (Coffey).
He was born on June 1, 1912 to a fishing and farming family in La Scie, an isolated community on the northeast coast of the Colony of Newfoundland. In 1928, he suffered from osteomyelitis and spent two years fighting for life and limb under the care of Sir Wilfred Grenfell at the Grenfell Mission Hospital in St. Anthony at a time before much medical care was either invented or accessible. His straight leg which resulted from the illness did not slow his pace; although it prevented him from military service, he joined the reserves during World War II. Pre-confederation, he carried the mail from Shoe Cove to La Scie, by dog sled in the winter and on foot in summer. He was a gentleman farmer who loved to experiment - from milk and eggs, to wheat and strawberries. He produced a wide variety to demonstrate that farming was viable in the harsh terrain and uncertain climate, and to provide food for the family. In later years, he tested new varieties of seed potatoes for the federal department of agriculture.
Throughout his lifetime, he was politically active at the grassroots level. He abhorred the abuses of the barter system, and sought to achieve a better way of life for fishermen and farmers. He led a challenge to local fish merchants, establishing a co-op store in his community and fairer prices for fishermen. In 1950 he was invited by the new Provincial Government for co-op and rural development service, and spent the next 27 years working on behalf of both fishermen and farmers throughout the island, but particularly along the northeast coast. He brought government funding, wharves, and utilities to many communities and personally resettled many of the tiny ones. Despite the controversy of the resettlement program, he remained steadfast in his belief that he had facilitated a better life for the families and futures for their children (and received testimonies to support that conviction).
Art was an enthusiastic, passionate and forceful supporter of La Scie throughout his life. He was instrumental in the establishment of its fish plant, the building of infrastructure (water, sewerage, etc), and the improvement of health and educational facilities. He was an active, and likely annoying lobbyist for community services and on behalf of individuals. He orchestrated the incorporation of La Scie as a municipality and served as its mayor for many years. He was a long time Justice of the Peace and an active member of many committees and boards in the area. He lived his motto in life to the fullest: "I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being let me do now. Le me not defer or neglect it; for I shall not pass this way again."
Art experienced during his lifetime about a hundred years of change - from the introduction electricity, the telephone, television, and roads, and in each case he lobbied, argued and fought for its implementation. A visionary, he had a car delivered before road access was completed and a television before a signal could be received. A keen outdoorsman, he enjoyed canoeing the ponds and rivers and rambling over bogs and barrens. He is listed in the Whos Who in Newfoundland. In 1977, he was awarded the Queen's Silver Anniversary Medal. The Kinsman Club of La Scie made him an honourary member in 1983. At the age of 75, he moved to the mainland to be closer to his children, first to Carleton Place, ON and then to Victoria, BC where he remained until his death. A celebration of his life will be held in La Scie in July 2005; a scholarship is being established in his name.

The Christian's Faith
by A.C. Wornell
When on my bier I lie,
Disgrace not hand or eye
With sympathetic, ineffectual tears;
But calmly think of me,
Part of eternity,
Whose spirits sings to God in
other Spheres.
The sod in which you lay
My lifeless mortal clay,
Is part of God who is a part of me;
Thus will my soul arise
(unseen by human eyes)
In other realms of immortality.
