HAINING - Robert (Roberto) died peacefully at home, November 19, 1997, at the age of 67. Diagnosed with cancer twelve years ago, Robert's acceptance and perseverance were an inspiration to all. His sense of humour and dignity were his companions to the end. He is survived by his wife Susan McKay; his beloved children, Noemi Maitland (Jim), Debbie Kirkby (Lorne), Vanita Alexander (Greg), and David Haining, step-children, Jennifer Booker (Steve) and Rob Joyce, all of whom he was so proud of; his grandchildren, Peter, Ryan, Janell, Jenna, Alaina, Sean and Suzanne; also his sister Paula Thornton (John) and her children, Paul Thornton and Michelle Johnson (David). He was predeceased by his cherished daughter Georgina in 1981 and niece Lise in 1994, and parents, Eleanor and Paul Schreiner. Robert was the owner and operator of the Roberto's salons in Calgary for over forty years. His artistic flair for hairdressing flowed over to the arts and music. A classical pianist as a young man, Robert volunteered and supported the Esther Honens piano competitions for many years. As a father, Robert fostered a love of life, sports and a competitive spirit in his children who pursued challenges in the sports of alpine skiing, sailing, running and swimming. But for all of these interests, his grand passion was sailing. Robert, known as "Uncle Bobby" in sailing circles, sailed locally and internationally with great success, and in the last few years due to his illness put his energies into building the boats he so loved to sail. His handcrafted wooden boats are among the best in the world. Uncle Bobby would likely be upset if we neglected to mention he was the 1985 Canadian Fireball Champion. We all celebrate the life of this amazing person, whose philosophy focused on the positive. He always chose to "take the high road" through life. A special thanks to Bonnie Martin, Sally Lim, and Dr. D. Scott Ernst of the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, Dr. Stephanie Kozma and the palliative nursing home care team for their care and compassion. A gathering to celebrate Robert's wonderful life will be held at the Glenmore Sailing Club, 90 Avenue and 24 Street S.W., from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 23. Please join us and share with us your memories. Flowers are gratefully declined.

HARRIS - Nellie Adeline Gray Harris. With mixed emotions of overwhelming sadness yet, tremendous relief and eternal joy, Nellie left this life on September 12, 1997. A brilliantly talented and beautiful lady, Nellie was born in a small Manitoba town in the twenties, grew up through the hardship of the depression, only to face the horrors of war. She loved dancing, beach parties and rollerskating but many of her numerous handsome boyfriends did not again. During a torrential downpour in 1949, she married the love of her life Glyndwr, had a child and slowly started a long, dark descent into a cruel and bitter world of manic-depressive schizophrenia. So much of her intellectual promise was poisoned by this blackness. She had held such promise; she was so smart; what incredible feats might she have accomplished? She did write brilliant poetry, a novel about her father's forty-nine years as a CPR conductor and share her love of nature. And, she touched a little girl's life immeasurably. Nellie told her, in an enchanted forest, if you ring a bluebell, fairies will hear it. That newly departed souls follow the path of moonlight on water towards heaven. Always snap a snapdragon. Pick up a lost penny. And by giving this little girl life, it had been her greatest accomplishment. A mother's true love can never be smothered by madness, her generous giving nature never turned by the heartless reactions to one in such an affliction, nor her true heart and soul be darkened by the awful breast cancer which so cruelly claimed her. In memory of this great woman, please tell someone you love to get a mammogram, or make a donation to help improve our mental health facilities and programs, and tonight, tell your mother you love her in person, by phone or in prayer. Fondly remembered by her daughter Ellyn Francis (Wayne) of Okotoks; and her brother Jack Gray (Marilyn) of Winnipeg. A lovely Service in her honour will be held on Monday, September 15, 1997 at 11:00 a.m. At Pierson's Funeral Home, 4121 - 17 Avenue S.E., Calgary. Arrangements in care of PIERSON'S FUNERAL SERVICE.
