Ella DUBRUL
In loving memory of Ella DUBRUL, 1905-2001.
She was born Ella KENDALL in Plattsburg, N.Y., the daughter of a Baptist minister whose calls took the family to Antrim, N.H., Cranbrook, B.C., Dehli and Norwich, Ontario. She graduated first in her class from Woodstock High School. At Toronto Normal School she met Stuart CORK. They married in 1927 and raised two sons David and Kendall, and a foster-son Flight Sergeant John GARDINER who was shot down in February, 1945. Their daughter Eleanor died in infancy in 1946.
In 1935 they founded Killarney Mountain Camp, a summer resort in Baie Fine then designed and built Birch Island Lodge on the Whitefish River Indian Reserve, (Birch Island) near Little Current, Ontario, which they operated from 1940 until the beautiful lodge burned in 1953. She was a Director of Northern Ontario Outfitters Association and wrote its constitution.
From 1942 to 1945 she directed a novel recreation program at Trinity K Club, the first girl's work program undertaken by the Kiwanis Club of Toronto.
In 1946 she helped Stuart found a new program in Institutional Management at the University of Toronto. After his passing in 1950 the program was moved to Ryerson, where it eventually grew into the present degree program in Hospitality.
In 1952 she married Dr. George Harvey WORTHINGTON in Vancouver, B.C. After he passed on in 1954 she attended Columbia University in New York City where she set a record number of points taken in one semester (30) and graduated with a Master of Science degree in Public Law and Government.
In 1960 she married Stephen DUBRUL, with whom she celebrated her most cherished achievement, a 25th wedding anniversary. They lived at first in Detroit, Michigan, but mainly north of there on Lake George Road, Lake Orion. There she researched and published two books, "The Worst of the Bargain" and "What Happened in Murdochville", and served as a Director of WTVS Public TV.
After so much growth, both natural and by acquisition, she leaves a large and diverse family of CORK, FINLAY, DUBRUL, and GALVIN, extending down to great-grandchildren.
A funeral mass was held on Tuesday, July 17 at 10: 30 a.m. at Saint John's Chapel of St. Michael's Cathedral, Toronto.

Francis Clinton CROSWELL
In loving memory of Francis Clinton CROSWELL, March 20 1916-January 21 2001.
Clint CROSWELL, a resident of Kagawong, died at the Mindemoya Hospital on Sunday January 21, 2001 at the age of 84 years. He was born in Toronto, son of the late Francis and Grace {THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON} CROSWELL. Clint attended school in Toronto, studying first, mechanical design, then became a student of accounts with a firm of Chartered Accountants in Toronto from 1938-1940. He served in the Navy from 1940-45, and following the war, returned to accounting, moving to South Porcupine to specialize in Mine accounting. In 1948, he joined the Field Auditing staff of United Co-Operatives, and in the early 50's was an auditor for the Manitoulin Livestock Co-Operative. In 1957, Clint joined the staff of League Central of Ontario as Chief Examiner for Credit Unions in Ontario, retiring in 1980 as Vice-President covering Examinations and Field Services. Clint also had many outside interests, and in 1953 became active in the Boy Scouts, until he retired as regional Commissioner for Greater Toronto Region and a Provincial Commissioner. He was awarded the Medal of Merit and the Silver Acorn by the then Governor General. An active member of the Manitoulin Navy Vets, he served as Secretary, Treasurer and Chairman. He was also an avid golfer, and had been given a life membership to the Manitoulin Island Country Club. Clint was involved in the organization of LAMBAC, and was its first Chairman. While in South Porcupine, skiing and his dog team were not only sports, but hobbies he enjoyed. He always said that dog teams didn't break down like most snowmobiles, and you always got where you were going. He also enjoyed travelling and cruises, having visited many ports. He was a member of St. Paul's on the Hill United Church. Clint loved playing card games, in particular, poker and euchre. His enjoyment in winning these games, earned him quite a reputation for, shall we say, sleazy and underhanded tricks. Dearly loved husband of Helen {HILLIARD} of Kagawong, loving father and father in law of Clinton (Kit) and Karen CROSWELL of Oakville Valerie and Gary MORRISON of Brampton, Wendy and John KENNEDY of Mississauga and Jim HARRISON of Georgetown, and step father and father in law of Candy and Doug CLARK of Kagawong and Carmen and Steve Paterson of Thornhill. Proud grandfather of Jamie and Terry HARRISON, Kristen and Matt CROSWELL, Tracy CROSWELL, Laura and Emily MORRISON, Michael and Cameron KENNEDY and Digger CLARK, and great granddaughter Kendal.
Clint was predeceased by his first wife Mary {GALLOP} CROSWELL, daughter Karen HARRISON and brother Robert. Friends may call at the Culgin Funeral Home after 7: 00 pm. on Tuesday. The funeral service will be conducted in the Wm. G. Turner Chapel on Wednesday, January 24, 2001 at 11: 00 am. with Reverend Mary Jo Eckert Tracy officiating. Cremation to follow.
