Where Are You From The Point


So sorry to hear that Dom has passed away. My barber for more than 30 years; and a real Point “Institution”.

Missed him the last few years as his health declined – May he rest in peace….

Where Are You From Point-Saint-Charles

Here is the obituary of Sheila Brandl Hennessy.  The service will be held in Mississauga but buried at the Notre-Dame des Neiges cemetary on Friday.    Here is the obituary which I picked up in the Toronto Star of today:

BRANDL, Sheila Alice (nee HENNESSY) Sadly, we announce the passing of Sheila at the Trillium Hospital in Mississauga. Sheila will be greatly missed by her loving husband, Alf and her devoted daughters, Margaret and Erica. Sheila was born in Montreal, where she met Alf. Together, they lived in Austria and Manitoba, before settling in Ontario. She always missed Montreal and returned there for numerous trips, which she enjoyed tremendously. Sheila's true passion was genealogy. Her work led to a mountain of research of her own family tree and the discovery of many relatives, many of whom we were able to meet in person. Her tireless efforts also helped many others in tracing their family trees. She enjoyed travel, something she shared with Alf, with whom she went on many trips, including Australia and Europe. She especially cherished her visit to the Canadian Monument at Vimy Ridge as her grandfather served during World War I. Survived by her husband, Alf and daughters, Margaret Brandl (Rob) and Erica Brandl (Rob, sons Devin and Jarod), brother Dan (Judith), sister Joan, brother Bill (Marie José), twin sister Shannon (Andre) and brother Tom (Sally). Sheila will be remembered by her many nephews, nieces and friends. Predeceased by her father, Frank (1976), her mother, Jessie (1990), her brothers, Gerald (1967) and Donald (2006). A celebration of her life will be held at The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, 1535 South Gateway Rd., Mississauga, on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Interment at the Notre Dame des Neiges Cemetery, Montreal.

Where Are You From Point Saint Charles/Deux Montagnes

Time permitting, I would like to recommend to the committee that nominates inductees to the Hall of Recognition to consider:
The Women Auxiliary of the Boy's and Girl's Club. This group was the back bone of the club, involved in many levels of activities and organization. Unfortunately, it was many years ago and I cannot remember specific names and years, with the exception of Mrs. Minnie Assels. Mrs. Folley was at the front reception desk/cantine and was always helpful and welcoming; but I don't know if she was part of the auxiliary. Apparently, pictures and files from the earlier years and the 1960's on, are archived at McGill. I only tried once to access photos of a 'Beauty Pageant' that was held involving all of the Boy's and Girl's clubs at the time (late 60's) and I was not successful. 
Is there someone on the committee who could supply more specifics on names,duties and years served? Re: Women Auxiliary for a possible nomination this year or next?
Thank you for your time.
