It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our
dear father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Jim passed away very peacefully on
Monday April 18, 2005 at the age of 86. He has now been reunited with his loving
wife and best friend of 56 years Irene. "Tootsie" was his true soul mate and they
will now laugh and dance together for eternity. Jim was the proud father and best
friend of; Tony Scornaiencki (Brenda), Jay Scornaiencki (Judy), and Dawn Zollner
(Steve) of Athens, Tennessee and predeceased by his son Paul. He will be fondly

Morgenstern (Mark), Tricia, Mark, and Paula Scornaiencki (fiance Aaron Watts),
Jennifer (Jordy MacKay) and Andrea (Derek Brown ) Scornaiencki and Kurt and
Candice Zollner of Athens, Tennessee. He was a harmonica playing, foot tapping
Great-Nono to; Hanna Scornaiencki, and Megan and Adam Morgenstern. He was the ever
loving and devoted son of the late Tony and Josephine Scornaiencki. Jim was
predeceased by his brother Louie Scornaiencki (Velma), and sisters Edith Belsito
(Max) , Delena Esposti (Art), Ellen Carpenelli (Sonny), Mary Renzini (Tony), and

McEwen, Jim McEwen (Audrey), Edith Sullivan (late Jerry), Vonnie Abessinio (late
Danny), late Marie Alessandrini (Eric), late Dawn Brown (late Bob Brown) and the

evening from 7 to 9 p.m. (Funeral mass place and time to be announced later.)
Jim's family would like to thank the staff and residents at the Windsor Park
Retirement Home; you treated him with dignity and respect and he thought of all of
you as family. Jim had a wonderful sense of humour and loved to laugh. Through the
years he shared many stories and experiences with us that we will pass down for
generations to come. Memorial donations in Jim's honour can be made to Algoma
Residential Community Hospice (A.R.C.H.).
