FRANKS, Gladys Evelyn (née BATCHELOR)
Gladys Evelyn FRANKS was born in Proton Township, May 19, 1914 and entered eternal rest April 14, 2005 at Dufferin Oaks. She was the fifth child of Samuel and Edith (CAMPBELL) BATCHELOR. Gladys is survived by one sister, Elva DUNN, Toronto, and two brothers Ernie (Eunice), Collingwood and Fred (Melrose) of Orangeville.
Gladys was predeceased by her husband Osborne who was killed in a construction accident, December, 1946, one sister Ila FARR and four brothers - John, Edward, Wilfred and Robert, an infant son and a grand_son Tim FRANKS. Gladys' children are Russell (Arlene) of Orangeville, Marie HODGKINSON, Toronto, Leslie (Isabell) of Dundalk, Delbert (Diane) of Orangeville, and Keith (Pat) of Dundalk. Gladys' grandchildren are: Wilda (Bob) HARDING, Jeff (Diane) FRANKS, Mark (Sonya) FRANKS, Dawn (Scott) HIGGINSON, Tammy (Paul) NIXON, Jeremy FRANKS, Rob (Jenn) FRANKS, Gaye FRANKS, Scott (Kristin) FRANKS. Great-grandchildren are: Jennifer (Rick) JOHNSTON, Chris HARDING, Carter, Jordan, Tanner, Natalie, Ryan, Tyler FRANKS and Courtney, Kristen, Ashley NIXON.
Gladys was raised at Saugeen Junction, north of Proton Station. Her parents were farmers, and then bought the brick yard at Proton Station, then returned later to farming. Their children all knew what hard work was. Gladys and her siblings attended public school at Proton Station and as a young girl worked at home and did housekeeping for neighbours.
Gladys and Osborne were married in 1935, farming in the south of Proton, then to Artemesia Township and settling on the 3rd Line of Osprey, near Hatherton. With a family of five children, times being hard in the forties, Osborne worked with Greenwood Construction as well as farming. It was while Osborne was away at work that the tragic news was received of Osborne's sudden death, December 2, 1946 in a construction accident. Gladys was left a widow and five children to raise. Being the strong and courageous person she was, she struggled on and with the help of family, community and Friends, Gladys kept farming and raising her children and teaching them skills of life. She was always so appreciative of the help she received in those difficult years. Gladys farmed until 1970, when she sold the farm and moved to her newly built home in Dundalk.
In Dundalk, Gladys enjoyed her home, family gatherings, gardening, community events, hockey and baseball, senior tours, bingo and her growing family of grandchildren. Gladys lived in her home in Dundalk until March 2004. With failing health she sold her home and in June moved to Dufferin Oaks. She enjoyed her new experience of living at Dufferin Oaks; adjusting well and going to events as her health allowed. She enjoyed the staff there, loved the visits of everyone who came by. As her health failed she was given special attention by Dufferin Oaks and Palliative care. Gladys passed away on April 14, almost reaching the grand age of 91.
Her funeral was held April 18 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk with burial following at Community of Christ Cemetery. The service was officiated by Elder John RICHARDSON and Evangelist Rod McLEAN, a family friend. Eulogies were delivered by Wilda HARDING, Tammy NIXON, Delbert FRANKS and Ken WEATHERALL (Osprey neighbour.) Honourary pallbearers were Orval BRODERICK, Ken WEATHERALL, Bob HARDING, Grant FRASER and Dennis MILLS. Grandsons served as pallbearers, namely: Jeff, Mark, Jeremy, Rob and Scott FRANKS, Paul NIXON, Chris HARDING and Scott HIGGINSON. Granddaughters served as flowerbearers - Wilda HARDING, Tammy NIXON, Gaye FRANKS, Dawn HIGGINSON, Jennifer JOHNSTON, Kristin FRANKS and Jennifer MOODY.
Glen WRIGHT, a family friend, sang "Precious Memories" during the service and "Amazing Grace" at the grave site. Elder Fred BATCHELOR, Gladys' brother, offered the benedictory prayer at the service.
Following the committal service, refreshments were served at the Community of Christ.

GROVES, Walter -- Dispatch:
By Stefanie BATCHO- LINO, Saturday, August 20, 2005, Page M4
Sometimes gathered around a dinner table with his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren, Walter "Wally" Alfred GROVES would raise his fists in the air. But not in anger.
"He'd stick fists out on either side. And we'd have to put ours out [to touch his].... Then, we'd do a family power chant," his daughter, Susan WRIGHT, recalls. "It was about being together and being one. Then, we'd all crack up laughing."
The laughter and smiling would not stop there if Mr. GROVES had his lighthearted, yet tenacious way.
When his grandchildren would notice part of a meal that accidentally or not -- made its way to his nose or the side of his mouth, he'd chirp back: "Oh, I'm saving that bit."
For him, life was about not taking himself too seriously and making people smile, whether by waggling his eyebrows, giving raspberry kisses to family members or clicking his heels in the air.
"In bringing happiness to people, he was a king," Ms. WRIGHT said of her father, who emigrated to Canada from England in 1990 at the age of 70 after his beloved wife, Peggy, passed away. He came here to be close to his only child and grandchildren.
"Despite his humour, he was very tenacious and never gave up on anything," she explained, noting how he successfully fought prostate cancer a year after coming here.
Born in London, England, he served in the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm from 1940 to 1945 and later worked as an executive for the Royal Mail. Later, he moved to Worthing, in Sussex, a seaside town known for lawn bowling, which became his passion.
Although he hadn't played the game for four years, young Lawrence Park lawn-bowling club members turned out for his memorial, as did Friends he made at the Salvation Army's Meighen Manor, where he lived for the past two years.
"He has this huge fan club everywhere he goes," his daughter said. "There are many different gauges of success in life. One of them is how much pleasure an individual can give. I don't think he ever knew how successful he was [at that]."
Before he passed away this month at the age of 85, Mr. GROVES asked the Salvation Army chaplain to pray for him, not to ease his pain from a blood disorder, but to allow him "to continue to make people smile."

Edna ROBINSON, Educator (1916-2005)
Ontario's first woman high-school principal also backed bids by her hometown of Hamilton to host the Commonwealth Games. Her father, after all, had started it all in 1930
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, December 7, 2005, Page S9
Aurora, Ontario -- When making presentations on behalf of Hamilton's bid for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Edna ROBINSON sometimes donned her father's jacket. Like its wearer, who had been Ontario's first woman high-school principal, the jacket was loaded with history. In 1930, M.M. ROBINSON had worn it when Hamilton hosted the first British Empire, now the Commonwealth, Games.
History commonly credits Mr. ROBINSON with getting the games started. As his only offspring, the Hamilton-born Miss ROBINSON proudly shared stories of her father's role, to Friends and family and as the bid committee's honorary patron. When the committee became discouraged, Miss ROBINSON would remind them that her father had brought about the Empire Games in only two years.
"She made believers out of us," said Cecelia CARTER- SMITH, a former Canadian Commonwealth athlete and member of the bid committee.
Said Emerson LAVENDER, a long-time friend: "She just loved that involvement. It rejuvenated her."
In 2003, New Delhi was awarded the bid. "Initially, I was stunned," Miss ROBINSON told Ms. CARTER- SMITH, also a columnist for the Hamilton Spectator. "I didn't cry though. I wasn't as emotional as I thought I'd be -- I was too mad."
Ted, as she was nicknamed by her dad in the absence of a son, was no stranger to athletic competitions.
She had fond memories not only of the first Empire Games, but of the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam. As a 12-year-old, Miss ROBINSON had accompanied her father, the manager of the Canadian team, to the games. There, the Canadian athletes befriended her. Miss ROBINSON carried around a stuffed dog they'd signed and shopped with track star Fanny ROSENFELD, later a member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.
More often, she spoke of the Commonwealth Games. Years later, when a Welsh games historian visited Canada, Miss ROBINSON regaled him with stories of their beginnings: how athletes stayed at the family house and how she and her and her father, later the sports editor at the Spectator, travelled by sea to attend subsequent games.
But all this came second in Miss ROBINSON's mind to her own work in education. As well as treading on the ground her father broke, she broke ground of her own. In 1963, she became the first woman principal of a large, urban, composite school in Ontario. The school, Nelson High in Burlington, was one of the largest in the province.
Previously a teacher of French and German at Forest Hill Collegiate in Toronto, in 1957, she moved to the brand-new school in Burlington named for the British naval hero. There she headed its modern-languages department.
When staff met to decide on a school motto, Mr. LAVENDER, a history teacher, suggested a phrase from a Nelson biography: "Exact in thought and exalted in action." Seizing on it, Miss ROBINSON claimed the motto should be the phrase's reverse, "Exalted in thought and exact in action." The dictum was adopted.
"In a sense, it [the motto] personified her behaviour as a teacher, as a principal and all through her life," Mr. LAVENDER said. "She was a meticulous organizer and held very high expectations for the school."
In a time when women just did not become principals unless out of necessity in rural areas, it took a great deal of pressure from bureaucrats to allow Miss ROBINSON to take the then-requisite training program at Queen's University in Kingston. Afterward, she felt she had to be better than the men, according to Jane CLARK, wife of William CLARK, a cousin of Miss ROBINSON's. " Ted loved people. Didn't suffer fools, but really loved young people."
In a school still known for its excellence, Miss ROBINSON demanded strong academic, athletic and art programs.
"She believed extra-curricular activities had an important role to play," said Bryce LEGGATT, a teacher at Nelson when Miss ROBINSON was principal. "She saw them as a vehicle to enrich kids' lives and a place for them to hang their hats."
Many of the strong and talented teachers Miss ROBINSON had a knack for hiring went on to administrative roles. They became known as the "Nelson Mafia."
While principal, Miss ROBINSON asked the art teacher, Robert BATEMAN, to design a mural for the school's cafeteria. Now a famous wildlife artist known for his precise representations, he painted the mural in Cubist style and, along with Grade 9 students, painted a scene from the Battle of Trafalgar. Recently, he returned to touch it up with a later generation of Grade 9s.
Mr. BATEMAN had known Miss ROBINSON since he was a student in her French class at Forest Hill in 1949. There, she maintained a sweet demeanour and complete classroom control, he said.
Mr. BATEMAN didn't pass Grade 12 French with her and for a long time told the story of how Miss ROBINSON had failed him. Once while giving a speech, she said, "Robert BATEMAN is going around saying I failed him in French. In fact, he failed himself."
She did not fail her staff, however, and always supported them. When she was leaving the school to become an inspector of modern languages for southwestern Ontario, Mr. BATEMAN offered to paint her portrait. When board officials balked, Miss ROBINSON went to bat for him and won. The portrait still hangs at Nelson.
Mr. BATEMAN also credits Miss ROBINSON with being one of his first patrons. She purchased Maple Leaf Fence (Walker's Line) from his first show. It began his art career, and he left teaching in 1976 to pursue it.
After serving as an inspector, Miss ROBINSON ended her working life as a board superintendent. Upon retirement, she became a school trustee, leaving the post only to care for her aging parents.
Some suspect her parents were the reason she never married. Although she did have a beau, he was lost during the Second World War and no other man took his place. She'd met him in Germany before the war, while she was studying there for her doctorate in German literature. Fluent in the language, she attended a rally where Hitler spoke for hours. Much later, Miss ROBINSON told young family members, she was surprised to find herself captivated by his charisma in spite of her education, intelligence and worldliness.
Three years ago, she had a chance to see another leader and indulge her well-known sense of humour. In recognition of her hard work on Hamilton's bid for the 2010 games, Miss ROBINSON was invited to sit in a special section of Copps Coliseum during the Queen's jubilee visit. Making a day of it, she hired a limousine. Accompanied by Mr. LAVENDER's wife, Madeline, she posed for a photograph in the backseat. She's captured on film, waving like the queen.
Poised, polite and confident, Miss ROBINSON always wore knit suits, had her hair coiffed and her long, delicate fingers manicured. More than one male student and teacher had crushes on her.
"She had the ego of someone who has confidence resulting from setting a goal and achieving it," Mrs. Clark said.
Recently, Hamilton re-entered the Commonwealth Games ring, vying to hold them for Canada in 2014. Just before her death, Miss ROBINSON was made its honorary patron. Once again the opportunity rejuvenated her. She called the committee almost daily to check on the bid's progress and offer assistance.
While the success of Hamilton's bid will not be known until later this month, Miss ROBINSON remains its honorary patron.
Edna Margaret ROBINSON was born in Hamilton, Ontario on February 23, 1916. She died in Burlington, Ontario on November 14. She was 89.
She leaves Friends, cousins and a multitude of former students.

ROBINSON, Edna -- I Remember
By Jerry GROWE, Monday, December 12, 2005, Page S11
Jerry GROWE of Vancouver also writes about Edna ROBINSON.
I was a member of her last class at Forest Hill Collegiate in Toronto in 1957 and was one of those smitten male students. She was my homeroom teacher for three years, and each year the feelings became more poignant. There was a slight sense of melancholy about her which we fantasized was due to a lost love. But who would ever ask?
The portrait by Robert BATEMAN that accompanied the obituary was stunning, and was as I remember her then. The sketch was also perfect and, for the record, I think the two aptly positioned admirers were Don JARVIS and George SCROGGIE.
Edna ROBINSON was a truly effective classroom teacher; who else could have engaged us brats in the study of "Der Verschwindendes Miniatur"?
