He was predeceased by his father, Alfred Lamour, his mother, Mary Lamour, his brother, Fred Lamour, and his sister, Marjorie Capon. He will be remembered fondly by his sister, Louise Bass, his nieces and nephews and his many friends.

Marjory McCullum (nee McDowell)

July 9, 1932 - December 28, 2019

Marjory passed away on December 28, 2019, age 87. Originally from Montreal, she lived in Ottawa for several years before spending the latter half of her life in Pugwash, Nova Scotia.

Marjory was proudly independent and always set her own course. She preferred a simple life with its everyday joys.  She was a passionate advocate for the oppressed and a strong supporter of animal rights. Throughout her life she cared for others, first as a registered nurse, later as a social worker and parole officer and eventually providing home care to the elderly. She loved the arts and was always involved in an artistic project: for a time she made her living as a weaver; in retirement she pursued her dream of painting, took up woodcarving and was an active member of a local book club. She was a cat-lady in the best sense of the word and took in and cared for many stray cats over her life. She had a strong commitment to stewardship of our earth and did whatever she could to walk lightly upon it.

She is survived by her son John (Andrea), sister Beatrice (Norm), grandchildren Kirsten (Jamie), Carter and Elizabeth and great-grandchildren Jack and James.
