DUMOULIN, Emelda – January 9, 2016 is the day I died on this earth. I'm not sure why God chose this day but, The Feast of Our Lord's Baptism reminds me that I leave with no sin on my soul because of His great sacrifice. I have certainly seen many memorable days in my 105 years. Every day was something new and I was happy to always try things out.
I was born Marie E'va E'milda Quenneville in Alexandria, Ontario on April 10, 1911 to Joseph Antoine Quenneville and Marie Angelina Poirier. I had six siblings, Albertine, Dan, Emile, Oscar, Paul and Antoinette. We were all cherished and loved. I look forward to seeing them and their spouses in heaven.
I have always had a very strong faith. That may have begun when I was very young in Montreal. While I was playing I got hurt and had a fractured skull. My parents took me to Brother André and he healed me.
I married Joseph Alphonse Dumoulin on January 20, 1930 at the Church of the Nativity in Cornwall. We had one of the longest wedding celebrations; you see it was a blizzard so everyone stayed on all weekend. We had a good life until Alphonse passed away on November 6, 1957. We had five beautiful children, Julia, who later married James Long. Pauline and Irene that we only had for a short time before God called them to be the littlest saints. Lorraine, who later married Bernard Leclair and our dear son Gerald who was with me for only 24 years here on this earth.
Julia and Jim now waiting for me in heaven lived in Massena. They gave birth to Julia (Roger LaShomb) Massena, NY, James (Debbie) Long, Panama City, FL and Janet (Patrick Burke) Fishkill, NY. Lorraine and Bernie lived in Ottawa, he is also in heaven, gave birth to Linda Leclair, Ottawa, ON, Bernie (Johanne) Leclair, Gatineau, QC, Alan (Lynn) Leclair, Ottawa, ON, Lise (Rick Clark) Ottawa, ON, Louis Leclair, Ottawa, ON, Joanne (Terry) Leclair, also of Ottawa, ON and their sweetest daughter Diane they had for just 16 short years before God called her.
They blessed me also with great grandchildren, Timothy, Deren, Derek, Adam, Tanya, Shannon and Terry Jr. I have been double blessed with great-great grandchildren, Alex, Katie, Mackenzie and Adam Jr. and they tell me there is another on the way.
I enjoyed the love of MANY, MANY wonderful nephews and nieces both Quenneville and Dumoulin along with many God Children. Each was enjoyed in a special way.
I did have a dear friend and companion Zoel. For a short time we enjoyed bowling and dancing. Oh how I loved music in my life. I look forward to the angel's choir and perhaps a little dance.
I was able to live my life at home until 2009 when after a short stay at Hotel Dieu I moved to St. Joseph's Villa. I felt like I was everyone's Matante or Meme're. Thank you for all the loved showed to me by everyone there. Where else could I have attended Mass celebrated by my nephew Fr. Raymond?
I have worked hard all of my life and am a stubborn woman so I leave this world reluctantly. My granddaughter tells me it is time to live life fully again in Heaven. Please continue to pray for me as I will pray for all of you. Beaucoup d'amour.

McPHAIL, Allan Joseph - 1926-2016 - With sadness, we announce that Allan McPhail passed away in the early hours of December 10, 2016 - just eleven days before his 90th birthday. Allan's wife Christena passed away only a month ago on November 3. They had been married for 67 years. He leaves behind his four children Alana (Cleary), Martin (Bonnie), Innis (Nancy) and Monica (Jeff), his seven grandchildren Tara, Christopher, Andrew, James, MaryAnn, Katie and Heather, and his first great-grandchild Hunter Allan. He was the youngest child of Catherine Ann and Allan McPhail Sr. of St. Andrew's West and was the brother of Donald (Siami), Frank (Marjorie), Johnny (Grace), Imelda (Sr. Anna), Mary Catherine (Pat), Michael (Mary) and Anna Mary (Peter). For the past 7 years, both Christena and Allan resided at the Maxville Manor. Even as she faded into Alzheimer's, Allan's love for his wife remained steadfast, as he continued to visit her everyday. It was also here, that Allan was able to recreate a sense of community, being as social and charming as ever. Our family would like to send our sincere thanks to the staff and residents at the Maxville Manor, for they created a space in which Allan's last years were spent - as was the entirety of his life - with a sense of home and family. Allan's greatest passion was music, and it has been a gift he constantly shared with his family and friends. He founded the Glengarry Strathspey and Reel Society in 1977 and was influential in renewing and sustaining a passion for fiddle music in Glengarry. The Glengarry Celtic Music Hall of Fame has honoured him on several occasions for his work. Of that, he was very proud. We know that when Allan is remembered, his enthusiasm and talent for fiddle music will be too. We invite friends and family to remember Allan and to say goodbye at the MUNRO & MORRIS FUNERAL HOMES LTD., 114 Main St. South, Alexandria (613-525-2772) on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm and on Wednesday from 9:30 am until 10:30 am. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Finnan's Cathedral, Alexandria on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 at 11 am. Interment Parish Cemetery. A reception will follow at the Salle Fraternité Hall, Alexandria where Dad's fellow musicians are invited to bring along their fiddles to celebrate Allan through music. As expressions of sympathy, Memorial Donations to the Ottawa Heart Institute or to the Maxville Manor Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
