We were sorry to learn of the death of Mrs Irene Hornett, the wife of the late Charles Hornett, who was a priest in our diocese 1973-1984. After ministering for a number of years in the Diocese of Moosonee, Mrs Hornett and her husband served churches in Thessalon, Bruce Mines and Desbarats. After his retirement in 1984, the Hornetts relocated to Ottawa. The Rev. Mr Hornett died in 1992. Mrs Hornett’s son-in-law said that she was lucid until the end and died peacefully just before Christmas. A service is being planned for the spring to enable family to attend. She was 97.
