Stephen Sutherland ASM and MFEAT parent and member suddenly passes away

STEPHEN ''RED'' SUTHERLAND We are saddened to announce the sudden passing of Stephen on Friday, December 3, 2010 at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba with his wife Jo Ann (nee Menchenton), the love of his life, at his side. Stephen is survived by his parents Ronald and Nora, wife Jo Ann, sons Alex (age 19) and Jacob (age 17), his brothers Colin (Lisa), Bruce (Laurie), Eric (Ashley) and nieces Keara, Maya and Jayme. Stephen was born November 27th, 1961 in Mississauga, Ontario. He went to Lorne Park Secondary School in Mississauga. He was a graduate of the University of Windsor in Computer Science, with a minor in Religious Studies. Stephen met Jo Ann at a PYPS gathering in 1985 and was engaged four weeks later. They married June 5, 1986. He was employed at Mercer for 26 years, first in Toronto, and then the Winnipeg office in 1988. In Toronto, Stephen was a founding member of Youth in Mission. They moved to Winnipeg during Thanksgiving weekend of 1988 where Stephen was active with MENSA Manitoba. Stephen was a proud father of both Alex and Jacob. When Jacob was diagnosed with autism at age 2, Stephen, together with friends and the support of the St. Amant Centre, founded MFEAT in Winnipeg to help families with autistic children. Stephen remained active in support of families with autistic children and was a current Board of Directors member of the St. Amant Centre. Last year, Jacob moved into a St. Amant group home, down the street from the Sutherland family home in Winnipeg. Stephen and Jo Ann have enjoyed extra time together this last year with Alex. A visitation will be held at the Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway, Winnipeg on Friday, December 10th from 6-8 p.m. The funeral service will be held at First Presbyterian Church, 61 Picardy Place, Winnipeg on Saturday, December 11th at 1 p.m., with viewing at 12 p.m. Flowers may be sent to the funeral home or the church.

Please click here for more information.

Volunteers always needed

Volunteers are always needed.  A great way to become involved with ASM is to volunteer some time at one of our events. We are always looking for parents, grandparents, friends etc. to  share your area of expertise ( library tech, artist, photographer, writer, graphic artist, parent of an adult living with ASD) etc. A few hours every year helping with registration at our conferences and workshops, giving us a hand in awareness campaigns, walkathons, movie mornings, parent meetings etc. would be greatly appreciated. Dropping off brochures and posters in your area, school, neighbourhood takes a little time but makes a world of difference in spreading the word about Autism Awareness. You will also have the opportunity to meet other parents and do a little bit of networking, always a good thing. Another way to show support is to assist us in gathering prizes that are needed for draws, auctions etc. at the various events we hold each year. It gives you the opportunity to help out and once again, raising awareness in the community. Nothing is too small, every little bit helps. We will supply the request letters and you can help with your contacts or neighbourhood businesses. Some of the current volunteer needs are:  - Help required at upcoming Saturday movie mornings - 9:00am  TBA  - Assistance at the upcoming 5th annual Walkathon -  Parents/caregivers to drop off our information packages and brochures to  schools, daycares, etc. in all areas of Manitoba ( Fall 11 ). If you would like to help out or need more information, please free to contact us, noting VOLUNTEER in the subject line of your email. Thank you in advance.
