CELEBRATE COMMUNITY

TRIBUTES OSHAWA, ONT.—Eva Lakin was born in Oshawa in 1920 to Francis Bracey as one of eight children. Eva married Theodore Lakin in the parsonage at Simcoe Street United Church in Oshawa in 1941. Theodore and Eva had three daughters during “The War Years,” from 1942-1949. Although married in the United Church, Eva chose The Salvation Army as her church at an early age and was a devoted Army soldier her entire life. She was very active in the Army, attending the fellowship group and the home league. For many years, Eva helped with interviews for Christmas hampers and the Christmas kettles. In her spare time, Eva helped attain the Rights for Equal Opportunity Classes in the school system in Oshawa. A terrific seamstress, Eva made many clothes for her daughters and grandchildren. Eva will be sadly missed by her daughters Sandra (Bob) Harris, Janet Lakin, Linda Lakin; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. OSHAWA, ONT.—Born in Toronto in 1921, Margaret Doris Wells (nee Prince) was promoted to glory in her 93rd year. She was the beloved wife of the late Charles B. Wells with whom she shared 46 years of married life. A lifelong lover of Jesus, Margaret attended various churches growing up. She recounted many stories and held fond memories of friends and fellowship at Rhodes Avenue Corps in Toronto where she was active in Girl Guides and became an adherent, prior to moving to Oshawa in the late 1960s. Margaret became a senior soldier of Oshawa Temple in 1975. Margaret loved taking an active role in corps life, where she was a member of the ladies’ group and home league. She attended various programs and camps at Roblin Lake. Margaret always had a smile and a hug, and loved to talk and pray with everyone. She is remembered by her daughters Joan Jennings, Christine (Jamie) Carr; grandchildren and great-grandchildren. COQUITLAM, B.C.—Major Wesley John Wiseman was born in Kamsack, Sask., in 1938, the eldest of four sons of Salvation Army officer parents, John and Lilly Wiseman. A gifted artist, Wesley graduated from commercial art school before being commissioned in the Pioneers Session at the age of 21. Wesley’s first appointment to a remote community in northern British Columbia was followed by several appointments in Saskatchewan. In 1962, he met Lieutenant Ruth Norrie and they were married in Kitchener, Ont., in 1963. For more than 30 years, they served together in ministry across Canada. Wesley was a preacher, pastor, counsellor and director of family services during his active officership. In retirement, Wesley opened the Wiseman Academy of Art in 2000. Over the next 14 years, hundreds of people developed their artistic gifts under his patient tutelage. Wesley’s sense of humour, tender heart and love for Jesus left people he encountered feeling better about themselves. An adoring husband, father and grandfather, Wesley is missed by his wife of 50 years, Ruth; children Dr. Kevin (Karen), David (Manjula), Gregory, Lee-Anne (Armand); grandchildren Matthew, Michael, Sarah, Isabel, George, Max; brother, Donald; extended family and friends. GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR, N.L.—Roland Downton was born in Grand Falls in 1923 and promoted to glory at the age of 91. He spent most of his working years as an employee of the Abitibi Price Pulp and Paper Mill. Roland joined The Salvation Army and accepted the Lord when he was 20, and was a faithful soldier for 71 years at Park Street Citadel (formerly Windsor Citadel). He served in local officer positions for 41 years—recruiting sergeant (four years), corps treasurer (10 years), corps sergeant-major (27 years)—to which he was truly committed. Roland will be remembered as a quiet, gentle man of Christlike character who had a heart of giving. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Roland will always live in the heart of his wife of 64 years, Frances; daughter, Verna (Junior) Hynes; sons Bruce (Irene), Clyde (Edith); grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 28 • September 2014 • Salvationist
