She started work at Mutual Life (now Clarica) on January 16, 1978. She had a number of different positions at Clarica starting with Filing Clerk, Policy Change Clerk, Connecter Section Head, Claims Assessor, Senior Claims Assessor, Technical Admin Clerk, Tech.

The following morning we to St. Catharines where we checked into Lorenzi's Motel (after a few problems with the luxury car we had borrowed from Rudy). We drove around to see where Dave grew up and in the evening, we went to the Thorold Hotel to see the Great Imposters. After a few days we checked into the Sheraton Hotel in Toronto, and then went to our new home at 229 Highland Road W. It was a 2 bedroom apartment in a triplex where rent was $185 / month plus utilities. We lived there for 11 months. We did a fair bit of entertaining in our apartment and had many people for dinner including Mom Cartmell, Mom and Dad Sawatzky, Rudy and Yvonne, and Terry and Cindy. Our first party was a surprise party for Dave's birthday. We then moved to 391 Pioneer Dr. #9, which was a 2 bedroom town house. Rent was $286.20 / month plus utilities. We had a huge Bar B Q and invited all the Cartmells and Sawatzkys. We used 25 T bone steaks, 14 pork chops, 3 hamburgers and 2 hotdogs. Jason was born here on September 5, 1981 @ 12:39 am weighing 6 pounds, 15 ounces. When we moved in 1982, rent was $337 / month. Our next home was 278 Kingswood Dr. #209 and rent was $340 / month. Dave was between jobs and stayed home and raised our son, Jason. When we moved 2 years later, rent was $390. Our next home was RR#3 Wellesley where we lived in the basement of Harry and Irma's (my brother and sister-in-law) basement, trying to save enough money until we could get back on our feet. We lived there a year. Our next home was Lucan Drive in Waterloo. Jason went to kindergarten at Elizabeth Ziegler school. Kristopher was born here on October 2, 1986 at St. Mary‘s Hospital @ 8:15pm weighing 6 pounds 11 ounces. We moved back to Pioneer Drive, where Jason went to Pioneer Park School and Judy Foster took care of Jason and Kristopher . Our next to last home was on 429 Park Street, located across from KW Hospital (now Grand River Hospital). Both kids went to King Edward School until November 20, 1992 when we moved to our first house on 22 Folkstone Crescent. Dave loved this house and took pride in maintaining the lawn and outside maintenance. He was a very free spirit and lived life to the fullest. He enjoyed playing darts, playing poker with the boys, cars (Chevy Nova and Monte Carlo) and his 1972 Honda Motorcycle and spending time in his ‘shed’. On February 10, 1998, Dave was diagnosed with Lung Cancer, which had metastasized to his brain. He immediately started radiation therapy in London Hospital to try to shrink the tumours in his brain, and had to endure many tests and further radiation for the next six months. On March 29, we took the boys to Jamaica so we could have one last family holiday together. Friday August 10, 1998, Dave lost his brave but short battle with cancer. We had his Memorial Service at the Westmount Funeral Chapel, where hundreds of friends and family dropped by to pay their last respects. The service was given by Rev. Jerry Kroetsch and Rev. Leonard Epp. Dave’s brother, Tim gave a heartfelt Eulogy. Contributed by Marianne Cartmell EULOGY Written and given by Tim Cartmell David F. Cartmell Oct 19 1956 -Aug 28 1998 Tues Sept 01 1998 Marianne, Jason, Kris , Family and friends of the Cartmell’s and Sawatzky's. . Thanks for coming to Dave's send off. Webster's defines "Eulogy" as a "FORMAL speech in praise of person who has recently died." Dave was never formal about anything!! In fact, When asked Dave would reply. " everything is JUST CASUAL MAN, JUST CASUAL." Dave packed a lot of living in his nine lives, winning all his battles except this one. (BUT DID HE EVER FIGHT IT. ) I think you could best describe him as FREE SPIRITED ETERNAL TEENAGER who marched to the beat of his own drummer. That spirit also resides in his two sons Jason and Kris .EMBRACE IT BOYS!! Dave's passions included: MARIANNE, MUSIC MOTORCYCLES AND SHEDDEN (and he has a real kick ass shed) Many nights were spent throwing arrows and tinkering on his inventions (as Clay will attest too!!) With Dave you never knew what to expect. We know he kept many hairdressers in business with his many colors and styles. My personal favorite was his ELVIS HAIRDO! He was also known to donate his money during the quarterly Poker games with Al "Lots of lager," Mark, Gary and George. (Leave an empty chair for him beside Al) Dave had a short stint in the Royal Canadian Artillery in the mid 70's of which I followed .(I liked marching to the beat of his drum too.) Trouble was, he liked coming home to see Marianne without a leave pass. I will close with the tradition of the gunners. We never say good bye. It's GOOD SHOOTING, END OF MISSION, STAND EASY Dave!!!
