BLUMENFELD, Sam -- 1926 - 2002. Following a lengthy and courageous battle, Sam BLUMENFELD passed away peacefully, with his family at his side, on December 8, 2002, in Richmond Hill, Ontario. He is survived by his wife of more than 55 years, Sara, and their children Dalia, Ray, and Miriam, his grandchildren Zachary, Jessica, and Ben, his sisters and brother with their spouses, Bianca and Frank BLANARU, Clara and Jack OREN, Sara and Sandu GOODMAN, and Yitzchak and Malvena BLUMENFELD, his brother-in-law Rubin and Clara MAYER, the MAYER family, the MANEL family, the HABERMAN family, and the MIZRACHI families. Sam and Sara immigrated to Canada in 1953 with limited resources and learned to adapt to a new land, a new culture and a new language. He purchased Niagara Esso Service in 1957 and ran this business until his retirement in 1988. Over more than 30 years of serving his customers in Winnipeg, Sam built a wide network of Friends and associates. He was proud of the success of his business and was a leader in supporting the rights of his industry. Although his beginnings were humble, he was self-educated and well versed, with a curious mind, strong will and many interests. Our family wishes to offer our gratitude to the staff of York Central Hospital in Richmond Hill, Ontario with special thanks to Brenda HRYSIO and her entire team of men and women, the staff on the third floor of the Continuing Care Centre, Donna BELMORE, Dr. ZATSMAN and in particular Dr. FITURI. Their care, compassion and concern for Sam is truly appreciated. Donations can be made to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada.

FITZPATRICK, Dorothy -- Died peacefully at her home in Sarasota, Florida, November 11, 2002 in her 102nd year. Dorothy has been a resident of Sarasota since 1986 and was predeceased by three husbands: Frank BARKER (1941) Wendell GRAY/GREY (1979) and E. Boyd FITZPATRICK (1993.) She is survived by two sons, Peter BARKER (Pat) of Barrie, Ontario and Gerry BARKER (Barbara) of Wasaga Beach, Ontario and Sarasota; six grandchildren, Richard BARKER (Carol) Toronto, Ontario, Susan Barker FOGELS (Alvis) of Holland Centre, Ontario, Janet Barker THURN (Greg) of Calgary, Alberta, Lori PAVELY, (Ken) of Leaskdale, Ontario,, Lesley BARKER- THOMAS (Acheson) of Oakville, Ontario, Jonathan BARKER (Alexandra) of London, Ontario; and 11 great-grandchildren. Dorothy was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, March 22, 1901. She emigrated to Canada when she was six years old and settled in Calgary, Alberta. In 1921 she married Frank BARKER following his service during World War I and post war assignment in Siberia. Following the death of her first husband in 1941, she went to work with the Young Women's Christian Association in the war services branch. Her duties included providing home comfort support to young Commonwealth Air Training Plan aircrew in Aylmer, Ontario. Later, with her mother, she was posted to Ottawa to work with Royal Canadian Women's Naval personnel in a similar capacity. When the war ended, she resumed her writing career and worked as a correspondent for the Toronto Globe and Mail. She joined the Aurora Banner as an editor and later became publisher. During that period in her life she won several National Newspaper awards presented by both the Ontario Weekly Newspaper Association and the Canadian Weekly Newspaper Association. Her proudest moment was winning best editorial page in her class awarded by the Canadian Weekly Newspaper Association in 1958. Dorothy left the newspaper business to write a weekly column for the Canadian National Railway for whom she travelled to various parts of Canada to report interesting stories of the country and its people. The weekly column, Diary of a Vagabond was carried in Canadian community newspapers. In 1970, she moved to South Natick, Massachusetts where she wed Wendell GRAY/GREY. Following Mr. GRAY/GREY's passing in 1979, she moved briefly back to Canada before marrying Boyd FITZPATRICK of Olean, New York in 1980. Mr. FITZPATRICK was publisher of the Olean Times Herald. Age 96, she wrote, in longhand, her life story, Sometimes there was an angel on my shoulder. The book traced her life experiences and was edited by her son, Gerry and his wife Barbara. It was her wish that her body be donated to the University of Florida Medical School for medical research. Maybe they will discover why I lived so long, and that will help other people in the future she said following her decision. A remembrance of her life will be held in Toronto in the spring of 2003.
