Ted was born in Provo, Utah, in 1910, a son of the late Gertrude Brown and Dr. Andrew Theodore Rasmussen. As a neurosurgeon and former director of the Montreal Neurological Institute, Ted

developed lifelong friendships while training doctors from around the world. He is seen, along with doctors, Wilder Penfield, William Cone, Arthur Elvidge and Herb Jasper, as a pioneer in the field of neurological sciences. He was revered by his students, many of whom are still practicing in countries around the globe. Ted obtained his medical degree at the University of Minnesota, in 1934 and trained in neurology and neurosurgery at the Montreal Neurological Institute and the Mayo Clinic. He then served his country in the U.S. Army Medical Corps during the Second World War as Lieutenant-Colonel and Chief of the neurosurgical sections of two front-line hospitals in the China-India-Burma Theatre. After the war, Ted accepted the Chair of Neurological Surgery at the University of Chicago. In 1954, he returned to the MNI and McGill University in his adopted country of Canada and succeeded Dr. Penfield as Director of the MNI in 1960. Ted is best remembered for his meticulous work on the surgical treatment of epilepsy and his compilation of an unparalleled database of information concerning this neurological problem. During Ted's college and medical school days, he played professional jazz clarinet and saxophone and was an outstanding long-distance runner and an excellent skier and golfer. These interests continued throughout his life. Ted's passion for his career and many interests never overshadowed his devotion to family and friends. Some of his fondest memories stem from over 40 summers with his very special friends of Toney River, Nova Scotia. All who knew Ted were touched by his wisdom, modesty and gentleness. Our sincere thanks to Dr. Hackemann, the Rockyview Hospital Staff, the Home Care Team and the Renoir caregivers who enabled our father to live with great peace and dignity. Special recognition to Millie and Christine, for providing such comfort and love. A memorial service celebrating Ted's life will be held 1:30 p.m. Sunday, February 10, in McInnis & Holloway's Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Dr. S.W. If friends so desire, donations may be made to The Rasmussen Lecture Fund, c/o the Montreal Neurological Institute, 3801 University St., Montreal, P.Q. H3A 2B4.

OBIT # 3359 – HALIFAX HERALD – 14 MARCH 2002 DUNN (Fournier), Marie Augustine Fernande "Fern" - Passed away in Dartmouth General Hospital, March 13, 2002. She was a daughter of the late Joseph Fournier and Roberta (Chagnon) Fauchon, and the stepdaughter of the late Leo Fauchon. Fern graduated as a nurse from Regina Grey Nuns Hospital in 1939 and began nursing in Swift Current, Sask. Returning to her family's roots in 1943, she nursed at Montreal General Hospital, but was soon drawn to the dawning of commercial aviation in Canada. Fern became one of the first stewardesses of Trans-Canada Airlines (an RN being a prerequisite in those days). In 1947, she left the airline to marry a young, handsome resident, Dr. Stuart Dunn of Pictou. In Pictou, Fern and Stuart raised three children. When her youngest was of school age, Fern went back to nursing part time. Eventually, she would become Director of Nursing at Sutherland-Harris Memorial Hospital in Pictou. Fern was very involved in community work, including the Red Cross, United Way, Hospital Auxiliary, Local Council of Women and Victorian Order of Nurses, the latter two of which she served terms as president. Fern was fiercely proud of her French Canadian roots and was deeply committed to a strong, united Canada in which all people could flourish. In 1974, she ran as the federal Liberal candidate in Central Nova and was later elected president of the Central Nova Liberal Association. In later years, ill health slowed her down (marginally say those who knew her), but she remained an active citizen and a doting mother and grandmother. Fernande is survived by daughter, Michele (husband Dan Brennan); sons, Barrie (wife Caitlyn Colquhoun), Kim (wife Stephanie); beloved grandchildren, Zachary, Tristan, Emily, Carly; sisters, Pauline (Mrs. Roland St. Hilaire), California; Dolores and Marcelle, Regina; Jean, Edmonton; step-grandson, Max Brennan (wife Pearleen Moffard); step great-granddaughter, Madison.

OBIT # 3719 - The New Glasgow Evening News, Tuesday, April 7, 1987 NEW GLASGOW - A link with Pictou County's past was severed in Bradenton, Florida, by the death in hospital Monday, after a brief illness of Lieutenant Colonal John MacKay Sinclair CD, a career soldier and native of New Glasgow. Since retirement from Canada's Regular Army he had lived in the summer at Melmerby Beach, in the spring and fall in Halifax, and in winter in Florida. Born in 1918, he was the oldest of the children of Col. D. C. Sinclair QC, for many years New Glasgow's magistrate, and wife Norma MacKay, a granddaughter of Squire John MacKay, a pioneer and magistrate in the East River settlement that grew into the town of New Glasgow. On Col. Sinclair's paternal side he was a great-grandson of the shipbuilder and the first of the county's MPs, the Hon. Senator James W. Carmichael and grandson of Guysborough MP John H. Sinclair. John Sinclair's education was in New Glasgow's schools, followed by the Royal Mili! tary College, graduating in 1939. His military career began as a boy piper in the pipe band of the Cumberland Highlanders under the late Pipe-Major Fraser Holmes. The young piper formed the New Glasgow High School Cadet Corps pipe band and was appointed its first pipe-major; his first instructor Pipe-Major Holmes was on the record as saying of him that he "took easily to the pipes, it was born in him". His mother's family tradition held that he was a descendant of the storied Blind Piper MacKay, a legendary figure in piping lore a century before the Ship Hector carried the first Highlander immigrants into Pictou. For all of his life John Sinclair played the pipes. In the RMC at graduation he was the winner of the Artillery Prize and the Prize for Military Subjects. He was commissioned in the Permanent Force and posted to "C" Battery of the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. Overseas he covered off numerous wartime appointments, among them chief instructor of gunnery at t! he Canadian Artillery School of Artillery at Seaford, and later the officer commanding the 8th Battery of the Second Field Regiment RCA in Italy. Following the war he was in turn on the directing staff of the Canadian Army Staff College, second in command of the 1-2 Field Regiment RCA and chief gunnery instructor at the Artillery School at Camp Shilo. After staff college training in Canada and England he was promoted to lieutenant colonel in 1950, and thereafter until retirement served in staff appointments in Ottawa,

Halifax, England and New Brunswick. When in England during the war he married Barbara Young, a native of Ireland, who survives him, with three children: a daughter, Susan (Mrs. David Mitchell) in Kelowna, B.C. and two sons, Dr. Michael, a scientist, and Donald, an insurance broker, both of Halifax.
