LEPOIDEVIN, Shirley
Died peacefully and bravely at home on Thursday, March 13, 2003.
Predeceased by her parents, Dr. Jim and Jean ELLIOT/ELLIOTT of Quebec City.
Shirley was so glad that her two six week old grandchildren, Lucy and Alex, with Teresa and David, were able to come to Collingwood from Vancouver to be with her. The twins are an absolute delight.
Shirley was also able to celebrate her 40th Wedding Anniversary with Tom and Mark, along with sister Ann and Jack LAIDLAW.
Ann and Jack as well as nieces Kate and Meg gave so much love and support throughout Shirley's ordeal. It is greatly appreciated.
The numerous cards, letters, emails, phone calls, food, flowers etc. that Shirley received were constant reminders of all her loving Friends. Many remembered what an important role she played in their lives. Shirley new that she had an army of angels looking out for her over the past four months. She never stopped caring for others and wanting to help them in any way she could.
Shirley accomplished a lot in her lifetime. Very early in her adult life she travelled by herself around the world. She returned to nursing, met Tom, sailed off to England, raised two wonderful sons, went back to school to get her BscN, and then was a very caring Homecare Co-ordinator, first at Sunnybrook, then in North York.
In retirement, she loved life in Collingwood with many new Friends, playing bridge, golfing, skiing, hiking, biking the list of activities goes on and on.
Shirley, you were so strong. You will be greatly missed but we all have incredible memories from a life so full of terrific events, like hiking on the northern shore of Lake Superior.
There are many people to thank but particular recognition has to be given to the Community Care Access Centre in Simcoe County, Hospice in Collingwood, the doctors and nurses in the Cancer Wing at Sunnybrook, Dr. MORAN and a special, big thanks to Gil and Angela.
A memorial service and reception will be held at the Presbyterian Church, at the corner of Third and Maple Streets in Collingwood, at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 21.
Instead of flowers, the family suggests a donation to Hospice Georgian Triangle, 49 Raglan Street, Collingwood L9Y 4X1.

Elliott McCAUGHEY
By Cyril DABYDEEN, page A20
Doctor, cancer researcher, husband, father. Born May 21, 1927, in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Died May 26, in Ottawa, of Parkinson's disease, aged 76.
He could have been a lawyer, he said: but combatting diseases became his lifelong discipline, until Dr. Elliott McCAUGHEY succumbed to Parkinson's. Grace, charm, and commitment to work characterized his life, in his uniquely Anglo-Irish way. But it was in Canada that he perhaps made his greatest contribution: In Ottawa, he was chief of laboratory medicine at the Civic Hospital and clinical professor of pathology at the University of Ottawa in a 14-year period; he also served as director of the Canadian Tumour Reference Centre.
"Everyone loved him," said staff at St. Vincent's Hospital in Ottawa, where Dr. McCAUGHEY spent his last years as a patient. His elegant use of the English language and wry humour made him "endearing and special," said Dr. John KAUFMANN, retired neuro-pathologist at the University of Western Ontario. "Elliott's particular use of the intransitive verb," added Dr. KAUFMANN, "was integral to his style, and with his logical mind he was always pleasant to listen to."
Dr. McCAUGHEY held many memberships in professional bodies in Britain and North America. His more-than-100 scholarly publications enhanced his reputation. And he was one of the first to make the link between asbestos and cancer, appearing often in U.S. courtrooms as an expert witness on this subject.
The McCAUGHEYs lived for generations in Belfast and Ballymena, as far back as c.1000, having descended from the High Kings of Ireland, according to lore. Elliott's father, William, was a senior civil servant of the Northern Ireland Government; his uncle Tom ELLIOT/ELLIOTT died in the Battle of the Somme in First World War.
After graduating from Queen's University, Belfast, Elliott McCAUGHEY worked at the Royal Victoria Hospital, where he met nurse Amy Kathleen PAUL from Kilrea, who became his bride; he then taught at Queen's University, Belfast. But his intellectual energies propelled him farther afield. in 1958, he came to Canada as assistant director of pathology, General Hospital, Saint John's, Newfoundland. In 1959, he worked for the famed Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
Returning to Ireland, he headed the department of pathology at Dublin's prestigious Trinity College, serving from 1964 to 1972. During this time he spent six months as part of a medical research team in Nagpur, India, under the World Health Organization.
But patterns of disease in human populations and finding cures for diseases pre-occupied him. He moved back to Canada, to the University of Western Ontario, where he was most productive here he also formed some of his lasting Friendships. Then, in 1976 he came to Ottawa to continue his illustrious career. He retired after being struck by Parkinson's in 1994; around this same time his wife Amy suffered a stroke.
Dr. McCAUGHEY was well-known for his generosity. He also read widely: scientific material, politics, economics, belles-lettres. He regularly visited the National Gallery, and was an ardent listener to the short-wave radio, the British Broadcasting Corporation mainly. A whisky connoisseur he was; and he golfed in Ireland and elsewhere while travelling to conferences.
In the final months, as his mind teetered and his tremors increased because of Parkinson's, he flitted back and forth to familiar Belfast and Dublin, and to former colleagues at Queen's and Trinity: Images interspersed with life in Canada, his family especially, all in his ubiquitous consciousness. With his wife Amy and daughters by his side, Dr. McCAUGHEY showed immense courage to the end. He left behind his wife, and children Paul, Claire and Gail and five grandchildren.
Cyril is son-in-law to Elliott McCAUGHEY.

Shock, sadness over ASPER
Former movie ticket taker rose to prominence as one of Canada's biggest media moguls
By Richard BLACKWELL Media Reporter Wednesday, October 8, 2003 - Page B1
Canada's business, media and political elite expressed shock and sadness at the death of Izzy ASPER, the colourful Winnipeg media mogul who died yesterday at the age of 71.
Mr. ASPER built CanWest Global Communications Corp. into a national television and newspaper powerhouse, and more recently spent some of his fortune on charitable and philanthropic causes.
Israel ASPER, known to everyone as Izzy, was admitted to St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg at 9: 30 yesterday morning, and died soon after, surrounded by his wife and children.
CanWest spokesman Geoffrey ELLIOT/ELLIOTT said he had no information on the cause of Mr. ASPER's death, although it was "obviously sudden."
The funeral is set for tomorrow.
Mr. ASPER smoked heavily for years and had a serious heart attack at age 50.
A tax lawyer who for a time was leader of the Liberal Party in Manitoba, Mr. ASPER built CanWest Global from a single television station in Winnipeg into its current status as one of Canada's biggest media empires.
Colleagues and Friends praised him for his business successes and community work.
Conrad BLACK, who sold Mr. ASPER the Southam newspaper chain in 2000 to cement CanWest's position as Canada's leading media company, described him in an interview yesterday as "a charming informal character [with] never a hint of self-importance despite his great success." And that success was legendary, Lord BLACK said.
"The man started out taking tickets in a cinema in Minnedosa, and he, as of this morning, was the premier figure in the Canadian media. That's quite a career."
Lord BLACK noted that Mr. ASPER "had a reputation, in some circles, for being very litigious [but] I always found him a joy to deal with."
"We never had any difficultly reaching an agreement, and you never had to worry for an instant that the agreement would be followed up by him to the letter. "
Prime Minister Jean CHRÉTIEN issued a statement in which he called Mr. ASPER "a great personal friend and one of the finest and most able individuals I have ever had the privilege of knowing."
Ivan FECAN, president and chief executive officer of Bell Globemedia and Chief Executive Officer of CTV Inc., described Mr. ASPER as "a great entrepreneur, a brilliant competitor, and a true original."
Onex Corp. chief executive officer Gerald SCHWARTZ, who was a protégé of Mr. ASPER's and helped found the CanWest empire, said he "left a legacy of pride for his family, a television network for all Canadians, and a business empire for his colleagues. His leadership in the Canadian Jewish community is a loss that will not easily be overcome."
Mr. ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, who has worked with Mr. ASPER for the past four years, described him as "a visionary, but at the same time he was very human and very approachable."
Mr. ASPER's death raises questions about the future of CanWest Global, the conglomerate that owns Southam newspapers, the National Post, the Global television network, specialty television channels, and broadcasting operations in New Zealand, Australia and Ireland.
While Mr. ASPER was chairman of CanWest, he had given up the chief executive officer responsibilities to his son Leonard ASPER in 1999, and retired from day-to-day management responsibilities earlier this year.
His main preoccupations were two charitable foundations, the ASPER Foundation and the CanWest Global Foundation.
Still, Mr. ASPER was seen as the driving force behind the company's strategy, right up to the end.
Some people close to the company said yesterday that Mr. ASPER exercised so much strategic control, even in retirement, that the company could be plunged into turmoil. Operations could be restructured, and new partnerships and financings put in place.
CanWest's Mr. ELLIOT/ELLIOTT said a succession plan has been in effect for "quite some time," and there are unlikely to be any significant changes in the strategy of the company because of Mr. ASPER's death.
"There's a strong depth of long-term management at CanWest at the corporate level," he said.

John Bruce FERGUSON
By Anne MILLERD Thursday, June 19, 2003- page A18
Chartered accountant, husband, father and grandfather. Born March 10, 1922, in Edmonton. Died Feb.16, 2003, in North Vancouver, of cancer, aged 80.
John FERGUSON's father, a charming but hard-drinking Scot, left his wife and son when John was five, after which he and his mother shared a home with grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousins. A clever boy who was keen on sports, John was known in the grocery stores as the lad who knew the total of the bill before it was rung in. John's maternal grandfather, an inventor and machinist, became an important mentor to the boy. John never forgot his grandfather's kindness nor his father's desertion.
Following high school, John's apprenticeship to an accounting firm in Edmonton was interrupted by the onset of war. He served with the Air Force in Egypt, where he met red-headed Sandy (Flora Jean) REYNOLDS from liverpool. John and Sandy married at the end of the war, and John brought his bride home to Edmonton, where he resumed his apprenticeship. John spoke of the war years as the best years of his life.
John and Sandy had two children, Jean and Ian. John worked days and studied nights. Money was scarce, and Sandy's health suffered in the severe prairie winters. In 1950, when John qualified as a chartered accountant in Alberta, he moved his family to Vancouver, qualifying with the British Columbia Institute of Chartered Accountants in February, 1951.
John worked for Gulf of Georgia Towing from 1951 to 1977, and was an active member of the British Columbia Institute of Chartered Accountants, particularly in matters relating to professional ethics and discipline. In 1970, John was made a Fellow of the Institute, the highest honour it is able to confer on members.
John worked six days a week and most evenings. The family progressed from a motel in Burnaby, British Columbia, to a home in West Vancouver and a family membership to the Capilano Winter Club. While his children learned to skate, he served on the board and helped build sets for winter carnivals. Typically a stern and uncompromising father, John loved to take his children by surprise on Christmas Eve, coming home with extravagant gifts for everyone.
In 1977, Gulf of Georgia Towing was bought out and John retired. He built rock walls, travelled with Sandy, golfed and kept up his committee work at the Institute. John and Sandy enjoyed their two young granddaughters. Sandy's health failed, and when she died of cancer in 1984, John said, "There are people who just say they're sorry, and there are people who leave muffins on your doorstep or ask you to lunch. I found out who my Friends were."
In 1985, John married Babs MILLERD (née Dorothea STEWARD/STEWART/STUART,) also widowed. Attached to a large and comparatively chaotic clan, John made himself useful. He administered an educational trust fund for the 21 MILLERD grandchildren, and dispatched advice on financial matters. He took particular interest in a business started by Babs's youngest son and his wife, teaching them bookkeeping and coaching them in proper business practice, advising "Always remember the receiver general is a partner in your business."
In the last years of his life, John gave up curling, but continued to golf. He devoted himself to the care of Babs, as she became less able to care for herself. John became ill in the last few months of his life, but remained lucid, loquacious, and fond of maxims to the end. "Always do your best," he would say, as well as, "Nothing else is good enough."
John FERGUSON is survived and missed by his wife Babs, son Ian FERGUSON, daughter Jean ELLIS, grandchildren Ursula, Jessica and Julian, great-grandchildren Sam and Tyler, and by all the MILLERD clan.
Anne MILLERD is a step-daughter-in-law of the late John FERGUSON.
