OBITUARY DR. (EILEEN) ANN SUTHERLAND-AMIT (nee Redfern) Passed away at Harbourview Haven (Lunenburg, Nova Scotia) on Tuesday, September 29, after a long illness. Her loving and devoted husband, Zalman Amit, was, as always, by her side. Born October 8, 1938 to the late H.C (Harry) and Evelyn (Eve) Redfern, Ann grew up in Ottawa, Ontario with siblings Peter (Carol), John (Ann), and the late Stephen (Kathy) Redfern. She was a woman of diverse talents and interests who always lived life to the fullest. She had a long and distinguished career as a psychologist at the 'New Clinic' (Montreal), which she co-founded with Zalman Amit. She was the author of several books and numerous research papers, a committed peace activist, a collector of art and antiques, an avid world traveler, accomplished scuba diver, and a Dame of Malta. She touched the lives of people around the world from Ottawa and Montreal to Alburg (Vermont), Grand Cayman, Tel Aviv and Nova Scotia where she eventually made her home in Upper Kingsburg. She is survived by children Vered Amit (Noel Dyck), John Sutherland, James Sutherland, Catherine Sutherland (Larry Tait) and is predeceased by her daughter Rotem Amit. She leaves behind her grandchildren Aiden Talai, Shawn Barr, Caleb Sutherland, Clara Tait and Hannah Tait as well as many other dear relatives and friends. Special thanks to the staff at Harbourview Haven for their devotion and excellent care and to good friends, Susan and Daphna for their dedication and support throughout her illness. A Memorial will be held on Sunday, October 18, 2 p.m. at Concordia University, Hall Building, 1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West, Rooms H765 & H767.
