Dian and John Wise of Toronto have set up a fund in memory of Mrs. Wise’s parents, the late Archbishop James Watton and his wife Irene.
Archbishop Watton, who died in 1995, was a former bishop of Moosonee and metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Ontario. The fund was created in Archbishop Watton’s boyhood parish of St. Paul’s, Southampton, Ont.
Mrs. Wise said the fund will be used for social outreach as a reflection of her parents’ “deep social and spiritual commitment to people.”
She said she and her husband feel “there still may be many people across the country who have been touched” by her parents.
