Megan Venner ('97)
Mum was an enthusiastic supporter of Mount
Allison. She began the alumni association
in Saskatchewan and her clear love of the
school sent both her daughters, Ellen Venner-
Hiltz ('90, '92) and Megan Venner ('97). She
returned to the Maritimes in '94 where she
and her husband began their own business,
Venner and Associates. She embraced life
and faced its inevitable challenges with cour-
age, dignity, and the support of her incred-

rageous battle with cancer. Although he was
diagnosed over six years ago, his death was
sudden and unexpected. After completing
his BFA, Jim achieved the Tamarind Master
Printer designation in Lithography at the
Mexico. Jim was passionate about lithogra-
phy, music, and the outdoors. He was gen-
erous, sincere, easygoing and kind, and was
loved and respected by many. He will be
greatly missed, especially by his wife Holly
('99) and seven-month-old son, Angus.

-- Cathy, Brian, and Heather. She enjoyed gar-
dening and spending time with family and
friends at their cottage. One of her goals after
diagnosis was to be able to attend her 50th
Reunion last May. Thankfully she was able to
do that and thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship
and impressive ceremony of that gathering.
and Lynn Loewen ('82)
chaired Mount Allison's Board of Regents
and served as Chancellor. He spent 20 years
on the Board in various capacities. Although
not a Mount Allison graduate, over the years
Jim and his wife Betty spent much time on
campus and made many great contributions.
Jim exuded commitment and interest. His
straightforward manner was both kind and
compassionate. Perhaps he was that way with
Mount Allison because he was giving back to
a place that he so much loved. He routinely
sought to enjoy faculty, staff, and students in
direct and honest conversations. In addition
to Mount Allison, Jim was engaged in many
things; family, community, and church all
benefitted from his boundless energy, wis-
dom, and heart. We loved him and we knew
he loved Mount Allison. Jim is missed and we
are grateful for our time with him.
