GRANT, James M. - With his family by his side, Rev. James M. Grant passed away peacefully on September 27th, 2016. James was predeceased by his loving wife of 64 years, Annabelle (nee Townsend) (2014), his parents Hector and Nellie Grant, his siblings Mae MacDonald (AD), Katherine Maclaughlin and Margaret Germaine. Left to mourn are his daughters Irene (Gordon) Dickie of London, Miriam Grant of Kelowna, two granddaughters Sarah (Tuhin) Jajal and Laura Janzen, two great-grandchildren Oliver and Aliyah Jajal and sister-in-law Betsy Tate (Barry). James grew up in the countryside of Nova Scotia and at an early age felt the call of Christian Ministry. Sensitive to the responsibility of his calling he endeavoured to share such faith and gifts as God had given him. An active pastoral minister for 42 years, he served his Lord in Kenora ON, Durham NS, Huntingdon QC, Leamington ON, and Westville NS. His green thumb and love of gardening yielded epic gardens and flowers from seed. His cottage in Caribou NS bears the fruit of his woodworking skills and has been the homestead for decades of Maritime stories and happy summer vacations. His love and faith in the Lord and his family was always his foundation. Well done thy good and faithful servant. The memorial service will be conducted by Rev. Stan Cox in Knox Presbyterian Church, 59 Riddell Street, Woodstock, on Thursday October 6th, 2016 at 2pm. Interment will take place at a later date in the Glenbard Cemetery, Nova Scotia. The family would like to extend warm thanks to all of those involved in his care over the last few months, especially the care and compassion received at Sakura House Woodstock. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Sakura House would be appreciated and may be arranged through the BROCK AND VISSER FUNERAL HOME , 845 Devonshire Ave. Woodstock (519-539-0004).
