OTTAWA CITIZEN

MCRAE
Wallie Katherine Schwebius
1925 - 1999 Peacefully, surrounded by her children, in song and prayer, on Friday, April 30, 1999, at the Ottawa University Heart Institute. Loved and held very dearly in the hearts of all whose lives were touched by her, especially her 14 children: Patricia (Roger Clark, Russell); James (Ottawa); Theresa (Lorne White, Kelowna, B.C.); Betty (Brian Rowley, Ottawa); Don (Ottawa); Kathy (Bruce Closter, Aldergrove, B.C.); Margie (Jim McDonell, Williamstown); Ellen (Greg Morrow, Ottawa); Mary Lou (Christian Dobbs, Sidney, B.C.); Lorna (Cindy Player, Hamilton); Laurie (Gillian, Calgary); Joey (Tracy Cameron, Ottawa); Frances (Michael Horgan, Moncton, N.B.); Christine (Pierre Roman, Aylmer, PQ) and her 27 grandchildren: Sarah, Emily, Becky, Lara, Erin, Stephen, Anna, Bethany, Janet, Michael, Christopher, Devin, Hamish, Jennifer, Kim, Douglas, Steven, Marion, Chelsea, Bernie, Hannah, Peter, Joey, Jackson, Leighton and Calum; and one great-grandchild Stuart. Also remembered by her sisters and brother: Beth (Matt Hertz, Edmonton); Martha (late Chris McRae, Glen Nevis); Charlie (Pauline, Saskatoon); Hilda (late Al Schommer, Vernon, B.C.) and Ethel (Bill Cey, Scott, Sask.), as well as many nephews, nieces and cousins. Predeceased by her husband, Archie Lawrence; her parents, August and Martha; her sister, Mary and her grandson Finn. A registered nurse educated and trained at St. Paul's University and Hospital in Saskatoon who worked until her retirement at age 65 from the Alexandria Nursing Home, she was a proud and active member of the St. Paul's alumni group in Ottawa. In addition to being a marvelous mother, she was an enthusiastic gardener, a wise philosopher and advisor, an accomplished maker of quilts, hems and lovingly crafted gifts of all manner, and avid reader, an expert mender of all things and master Scrabble player. A faithful member of St. George's Roman Catholic parish community and a tireless lover of life, she took great joy devoting her time, energy and spirit to her work with the pastoral care team, the funeral choir, the Catholic Women's League and countless other church and community activities. Friends may call at the Kelly Funeral Home, 585 Somerset Street West (centretown), Ottawa, on Sunday, May 2nd, between the hours of 2 and 9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Funeral will be held at St. George's Roman Catholic Church, 415 Piccadilly Street, Ottawa, on Monday, May 3rd, at 11 a.m. Interment to follow at St. Margaret of Scotland Roman Catholic Church cemetery, Glen Nevis, at 4 p.m. In memoriam, donations to the Youville Centre, Ottawa would be appreciated by the family. Special thanks to the staff at the Ottawa Heart Institute and at the emergency room at the Ottawa Civic Hospital, for their extraordinary care and compassion.
