OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Cindy Craig Roseborough,
I have a diverse nursing history including many years in advanced/critical care,
outpost nursing up the cost of James Bay, visiting nursing, and most recently
I have found an extreme passion caring for the most vulnerable populations
working in long-term care management. I focused on behavioural support for
residents with cognitive impairment, promoting inclusion, choice and quality of
life. I look forward to continuing to serve and promote inclusion and
person centered living for all.
Clair was born, raised and educated in New Liskeard, Ontario. His career began
in 1952 as an articling student in a local Chartered Accountants office. For the
next 46 years he developed the accounting and managerial skills to move on to
senior management and executive financial fields. He ended his career as the
Superintendent of Business for the Temiskaming Board of Education where he
was responsible for all aspects of the board except, of course, for the classroom.
Clair was raised on a large family farm but also into a very entrepreneurial family where he experienced work in the sawmills, casket factory, basket factory as well as all of the jobs that needed to be done around the farm. As he grew older he became involved in many other volunteer organizations and ended up being president or an officer in most of them. These included his church, genealogy groups, the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum, the Rockwalk Park in Haileybury and the Tai Chi group.
In order to keep a reasonably well balanced life, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, walking, camping, directing and helping at youth camps, playing the violin in small groups and at church, reading and all of nature around him. In spite of these many activities, he always had time for family and they shared in many activities together.
His wife, Joan, and he celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary in July past. We have 12 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren which are spread all over Canada, which makes it difficult to visit them very often. Joan is now in a nursing home where she is being well cared for. Clair remains in their family home where his wood working shop, library and office are located.
My name is Sheryl Gilbert and I was raised in the North. During my life I have always expressed an interest in programs for people with special needs. I have worked in Recreation for 28 years and have participated in many local events. My husband and I donated countless hours for our children’s school activities and during their after school activities. We also helped organize and run a Ladies Beginners Hockey program that ran for 8 years. I am very pleased to be
a board member for Community Living Temiskaming South and hope to bring my experience and knowledge to the table. I look forward to working hard and offering any support I can.
