We extend our condolences to Lorraine Swire and her family on the passing of Nora Almskog at Atikokan General Hospital. Last year, she moved to Atikokan to be near her daughter, Lorraine, due to health conditions. The service for her was held last Friday at Knox United Church in Fort Frances with Rev. Marietta Marshall officiating, and a fellowship following in the lower hall.
I had my last conversation with her helping to shovel the sidewalk last winter. Adelia was a great friend of Lorraine’s, visiting with her and Nora frequently when Lorraine came to be with her mother there. How time flies! At the funeral, sharing memories of Nora’s life was given by grandson, Rod. The scripture reading was given by granddaughters, Crystal and Kathie.

Having had surgical reconstruction on his arm in Thunder Bay, Don Kinnear was back here having a painful recovery. Don was assisting Don Anness with training his horses on the Emo Raceway in preparation for the Western Circuit Racing season, which Anness attends regularly. I don’t know too much about the accident and injury to Kinnear, but Anness says it was a freak accident. It’s unfortunate it happened as Kinnear looks forward to giving Anness a helping hand with the race horses.

This past weekend, which is spring break, we at the Christian Reformed Church lost another great talented family in Chris and Cheryl Hellinga, their children, Seth, Kalen, and Connor, who have moved near Sarnia, where Chris has purchased a business. Although Chris had left Dec. 27 to look over the situation, including housing, he came back here to get the family. Their address is 2622 Kaymar Crescent, Brights Grove, Ontario N0N 1C0. This is our loss and another church’s gain. The couple have left with a “farewell for now,” says Cheryl, “we will be back for many visits.” Family says thank you for your prayers and good wishes. We pray for God’s continued care and blessing for all. Both Chris and Cheryl had been quite busy in CRC activities and I’m sure their talents will be welcomed there as well.
