In loving memory of Cheryl who passed away December 19, 2004. Every Life is Cherished The earth will never be the same again. Rock, water, tree iron share this grief And distant stars participate in this pain. A candle snuffed, a falling star or leaf A galaxy once light now dark in death, So surely this particular loss is Heaven mourned; For if no angel wept if this one was tossed away as dross The galaxies themselves would be as lies. How shall we sing our love songs now In this strange land where all are born to die? Each leaf and star and all that is that once was not Show how the universe is part of this one cry, That every life is noted and is cherished And nothing, no one, loved is every lost or perished. Remembered with love, Dan.

Kay TREMBLAY, Thespian (1915-2005)
Actress who was the daughter of a clown, and herself went on stage as an adolescent, was best known as Aunt Eliza on the television series Road To Avonlea
By Catherine CULLEN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Monday, September 12, 2005, Page S11
Toronto -- Whether it was in front of soldiers in Europe during the Second World War, before lunchtime crowds in Montreal, on the stages of Stratford or before the film and television cameras that brought her to a mass audience in Canada, Kay TREMBLAY spent almost all 90 years of her life acting.
To most Canadians she became a familiar face as Great Aunt Eliza on the popular television series Road To Avonlea during the 1990s. Yet Kay TREMBLAY was immersed in performance almost from her birth in 1915 in Glasgow, Scotland. Her family toured Europe with her father, William McALLISTER, who performed before royalty as a tightrope walker and the principal clown in the famous Blackpool Circus. Kathleen McALLISTER, as she was named at birth, would take to the stage herself before she was even in her teens. She spent decade after decade acting and overcame staggering personal tragedy before she found the role on Road to Avonlea that would win her a Gemini award, and earn her the affection from fans that so many in the acting community had felt for her all along.
The role of Aunt Eliza was truly made for Ms. TREMBLAY, said Kevin SULLIVAN, executive producer of Road to Avonlea. "I had seen her work and I was always kind of fascinated by her because she's so ancient but she was really commanding." At the time, his team had wanted to add an older character to the show and built the character of Aunt Eliza specifically for her.
Ms. TREMBLAY adored the role, said Ron BARRY, her agent for nearly two decades. A true professional, having an amazing ability to connect with any character, Ms. TREMBLAY found something special in this particular part, he said.
"I guess the role was so near and dear to her heart because she could be a bit of a cantankerous soul too, and Aunt Eliza had so many layers and at the centre was a softy."
Soft enough that she would "melt" when a fan approached her, Mr. BARRY recalls, but strong enough to withstand filming in 35 degree heat in corset without a word of complaint, while the younger actors around her withered.
"She would always say to me, 'Darling, I'm just lucky to be working,'" he recalled.
Ms. TREMBLAY was so committed to the part that she even saved Aunt Eliza from a near-death experience of sorts. Near the end of the series' seven year run, the writers were looking for a way to create some exciting new story lines, said series producer Kevin SULLIVAN.
The idea that Aunt Eliza might be killed off was suggested, but ultimately passed over, he said. However, word somehow got back to Ms. TREMBLAY that her character was facing imminent death. She arrived in Mr. SULLIVAN's office one day and gave him one of the hardest pitches of his career in an effort to save her character, he recalled.
"I said, 'Don't worry Kay I'll put it aside.'"
"'But,' she said, 'I really like the idea of someone dying.'"
That conversation spawned the idea of bringing in a new character, the elderly cousin Winifred, who appears briefly in the series before dying. The plot line won Ms. TREMBLAY a Gemini award in 1997 for best supporting actress. The actress who played Winifred, Frances Bay, also won a Gemini for her part.
While the Gemini win and her role on Road to Avonlea represented a high point in Kay TREMBLAY's career, it came only after years of personal hardship. She lost three loved ones in a short span of time.
First, her sister Betty committed suicide some time after Kay moved to Montreal to be with her Canadian husband in 1954. Next, her husband Raoul took his life as well. Then, in 1970, the eldest of Ms. TREMBLAY's two sons, Anthony, drowned in a boating accident. She was devastated by the losses.
It was the focus she learned early on in life, thanks to growing up in a family of performers, that helped Ms. TREMBLAY to overcome the losses, said her son Michael TREMBLAY.
"I think she was about six when she asked, 'Daddy, how do you do it, getting up on the high wire?'"
"He said, 'I put one foot in front of the other, I look straight ahead and I don't look down.' I think that was the motto for her life. My brother died. She didn't look down. My father died. She didn't look down."
Her disposition was also shaped by the time she spent studying and performing with the George Balanchine Ballet, before the Second World War. She said it taught her the importance of discipline and to always be grateful to be working, recalled Mr. Barry.
After the Second World War broke out, Kay and her sister Betty formed a sister act and travelled around Europe entertaining troops. One night, Kay and Betty experienced some of the terror of war as their train arrived in the city of Coventry, England, said Frank Blanche, a friend of Ms. TREMBLAY's from her acting days in Montreal. Coventry was bombed that night. The sisters train stopped and everyone on board began to scream. "The bombs hit everything except the train and the all-clear went and they looked out the window and everything was flattened," Mr. Blanche said.
However, the war also brought some happiness into Kay TREMBLAY's life. One night, a mutual friend introduced her to a charming Canadian soldier by the name of Raoul TREMBLAY. In 1954, the pair married and moved to Montreal. They had two sons, Anthony and Michael. While in Montreal, Ms. TREMBLAY did everything from musicals and television to performing in front of lunchtime crowds at Montreal's Place Ville Marie.
It was while living in Montreal that she lost her sister, her husband and son. Although she eventually recovered sufficiently to return to her career, she still had another battle to win: alcoholism.
Eventually, she became involved in such successful shows as Night Heat, Street Legal and Wind at My Back and her career began to take off. She also appeared in dozens of movies over the course of her career, including the 1980 film Shadow Dancing, in which she appeared alongside Christopher Plummer.
"She got to play a variety of old ladies from the sweet grandmotherly type to the 'you better watch it, this is a gun-toting mama'," her agent, Mr. BARRY said.
Ms. TREMBLAY also enjoyed a successful stage career. Some of her greatest achievements on stage included performing at London's Grand Theatre under the direction of Robin Phillips in the 1983-84 season.
She played the role of an elderly courtesan in Timon of Athens and shared the stage with Shelia McCarthy. Beginning in 1989, she performed two seasons at Stratford.
Her energy and professionalism earned her admiration from colleagues in film, television, and on stage. Her talent and her strength made her truly one in a million, said Mr. BARRY. " You know how the Readers Digest used to have that segment, 'My most unforgettable character'? She would be my most unforgettable character."
Kay TREMBLAY was born in Glasgow, Scotland on January 12, 1915. She died on August 9, 2005 in Stratford, Ontario after suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. She was 90 years old. She is survived by her son, Michael.

McNEILL, Lily Curley
It is with great sadness that the family and Friends of Lily Curley McNEILL announce her death on July 2nd, 2005, three weeks shy of her 81st birthday. Lily was born July 26th, 1924 in Glasgow, Scotland, but moved with her parents, James and Jean McNEILL, to Barrhead as a young girl. She was predeceased by her parents, her sister Helen and her friend of more than 40 years, Dorothy BARRY, whom she missed dearly after Dorothy's death at this time last year. Lily came to Canada in her early thirties and worked for General Electric for many years until she retired early at 64 (a decision she never regretted!). She loved a good mystery, a good laugh, wee dogs, strong cups of tea, chocolate gingers, toasted cheese, mashed potatoes with gravy, red geraniums on the balcony in summer and, above all, the people in her life. Lily will be missed by all who knew and loved her especially her family: brothers James and Donald and his wife Christine, all of Scotland, niece Jacqueline of England, as well as by her many Friends here in Toronto particularly: Verna, Anita, Hazel, Evelyn, Sara, Pam and the staff of the Sterling Karamar building where she lived. Special thanks to Dr. CRISPINO, Dr. JENEY, the staff of St. Joseph's Palliative Care and Support Services, Dora, Richard and Carol-Ann of Pharma Plus as well as the personal support workers from Para Med who all cared for Lily so lovingly in her last weeks. Nothing is more precious than a true friend. (Anon) Lily was precious to us all.
