ist on PEI and was recognized continually
for her contributions to various organiza-
tions and her strong family values. Lynda is
survived by her husband Mike ('73) and three
daughters, Mindy (Oulton) McCarville ('99),

Lynda had an amazing life, and her passing

and community deeply saddened.
Doug Adamson ('72)
Submitted by his sister Sally Lockhart
Doug died suddenly on Aug. 5 '10 as a result
of a boating incident while on vacation. Doug
received a BA from Mount Allison and a BEd
from Queen's University and he remained
close with alumni from both these institutions
throughout his life. He moved to Calgary in
the late 70s and built a very successful insur-
ance agency. Doug was an avid tennis player
and golfer. He is survived by his wife Carol,
daughter Ashley, two sisters, and his 93-year-
old mother, along with many nieces, neph-
ews, grandnieces, and grandnephews. He will
be greatly missed.
Joanne Elizabeth
(MacDonald) Venner ('64)
Submitted by her daughter
Megan Venner ('97)
The first in her family to attend university,
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-
ible network of friends. She was surrounded
with love in her final days and will be missed.
Elizabeth (Saint) Heimbecker ('42)
Submitted by her son Michael Heimbecker

Elizabeth, beloved mother of Michael (Sue),
Rodney, and Wendy (George), and grand-
mother of Tim, Julie, and Jude passed
away on Sept. 9 '08. Mom was born in Hearts
Content, NL. She worked in various parts of
Eastern Canada and the U.S., before moving
West to Olds College near Calgary where she
met Donald. They were married in '58 and
raised their family there. Mom faced many
challenges, including Alzheimer's, the loss of
her beloved Don in '04, and the debilitating
stroke 18 months before her death. Nonethe-
less, through them all she came to a place of
peace and blessing and is missed by many.
James E. (Jim) Teskey ('99), TMP
Submitted by his wife Holly Paulin ('99)
Jim passed away on Feb. 18 '11, after a cou-
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
Tamarind Institute at the University of New
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.
Jane (Brown) Cummings '60
Submitted by her husband
Alex Cummings ('60)
Jane passed away Mar. 14 '11 in Fredericton
after a courageous battle with cancer. She
married Alex Cummings in the old Mount
Allison Chapel in '63. They have three children
-- 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.
Jim Keith, Chancellor Emeritus (LLD '10)
Submitted by Brian Johnston ('77)
and Lynn Loewen ('82)
Jim Keith passed away on Feb. 23 '11. Jim
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.
Wallace McCain ('52, LLD '74)
Prominent Canadian businessman, philan-
thropist, and Mount Allison graduate Wallace
McCain, of Toronto, passed away on May 13'
11 following a courageous battle with cancer.
Throughout his life he provided continued
leadership and support to his Alma Mater,
serving as founding chair of the University's
National Advisory Council and on several
fund raising campaigns. Mount Allison's
Student Centre bears his name. Wallace is
survived by his wife Margaret (Norrie) McCain
('54, LLD '95, Chancellor Emeritus), whom he
met at Mount Allison, children Scott, Michael,
Martha, and Eleanor, all of whom attended
Mount Allison, along with several grandchil-
dren and extended family members.
