"LEB" 2003 Obituary


LEBLANC o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-05-15 published
Reporter covered sports for Hamilton Spectator
Thursday, May 15, 2003 - Page R9
Hamilton -- Jeff DICKINS, a longtime sportswriter at the Hamilton Spectator, died suddenly at home on Saturday. He was 48.
During a 26-year that began in 1977, he covered the landmark Hamilton court case involving the Luppino family in which the courts recognized the existence of the Canadian Mafia.
In sports, he covered the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, and countless Grey Cup games and Vanier Cup games. Spectator sports editor Denis LEBLANC said "the determination he had on Day 1 never left him."
Mr. DICKINS leaves his mother and father, two brothers and a sister -- all of Toronto. A funeral is set for 1 p.m., tomorrow at Timothy Eaton Church in Toronto. Canadian Press

LEBOURDAIS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-03-17 published
age 93, passed away peacefully on March 14 after a very full life. Mother to Isa, Eric, Julien and Eleanor, she also had 7 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. A lifelong social activist, she worked with the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation in its early days where she met her husband-to-be, writer D.M. LEBOURDAIS who died in 1964. A strong supporter of women's rights to abortion, she was an honourary life member of Canadian Abortion Rights Action League. Isabel was best known as the author of 'The Trial of Steven Truscott', published in 1966. The book created a sensation with her assertion that Truscott was innocent of the rape murder for which he had been sentenced to hang in 1959. Throughout her life, she never wavered from that belief. An accomplished canoeist, many of her happiest times were spent on Georgian Bay where her family will scatter her ashes this summer. Isabel's family extends our sincerest appreciation to the wonderful staff at Lakeshore Lodge Home for the Aged, Toronto - her home for the last 8 years. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted, 85 King St. E., Suite 318, Toronto M5C 1G3.
