McQuarrie had been delivering the Remembrance Day prayer for years. “It won’t be the same, she’s been doing it for a lot of years,” said past Legion president Greg Brownlee. Ken Jones, the pastor at the United Church, will be taking over her duties this year. Here, she receives the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal from MLA Norm MacDonald following last year’s Remembrance Day ceremony.
