HUDSON, Marion Ruth (née WIGMORE)
At age 87, peacefully departed this world early Friday morning, February 4th, 2005. Ruth was a loving and devoted wife to her husband and best friend, the late J. Elliott HUDSON for 45 years the caring and supportive mother to her three sons John (Gail), Bert (Marianne) and Bob (Carol Anne); and the proud and generous grandmother to Abbie, Katherine, Emily, Heather, Jill, and Sarah. She leaves her brothers Versey (Margaret) and Bob (June) and sister Dorrie (Art) KERR as well as many nephews and nieces. She also leaves her many Friends and colleagues whose lives will, for a moment, take on a sadder hue. Born in Toronto, Ontario, Ruth was one of eight children born to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Curran WIGMORE and Ena BLACKBURN. She was educated at Leslie Street Public School and Riverdale High School, Toronto. Graduated from the Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House and made Deaconess at St. James Cathedral, Toronto. Before her marriage to Judge J. Elliott HUDSON, she worked as a staff member at St. Faith's Lodge in Toronto, a home for delinquent girls. She was then appointed Field Secretary for the Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House. During World War 2, Ruth served as a Lady Assistant to the Chaplaincy Service, C.W.A.C., and was affectionately called, 'Wiggy' by her fellow officers - a term taken from her maiden name, 'Wigmore'. The other ranks called her 'Madre' - a take off on the word 'Padre'. Following the war Ruth took a special course in Youth Work at the University of Toronto and then worked for a short time in the Anglican Diocese of Rupert's Land and the Diocese of Saskatoon. She was appointed Deaconess at St. Timothy's Anglican Church, North Toronto. Like many of her generation in the Great Depression, Ruth left high school to help support her family. When her children were themselves in school, Ruth completed her high school diploma at night and then entered university. In 1961, she graduated from the University of King's College with a B.A., and the next year, completed her B.Ed. from Dalhousie University. Ruth was an elementary teacher in Halifax at Richmond and Ardmore Schools before taking on the position of Principal at Elizabeth Sutherland School and later at Holly Drive School. She retired in June of 1982. As a Christian, Ruth was keen on Christian education in the public schools and firmly believed that as an educator, one had a responsibility to teach the whole child - body, mind and spirit. Active in church, community and sports, she enjoyed lawn bowling, bridge and travel. Prior to her 85th birthday, she advised her family not to make any special plans as 'I won't be here'. When asked to explain what she meant, Ruth said that she'd booked a flight to New Zealand where she would be attending an international conference of the Order of St. Luke (a healing order of the Anglican Church). She attended the Conference and had a marvellous time. She loved to talk about how she swam in the Great Barrier Reef on her birthday. But perhaps her most extraordinary trip was the one she embarked upon in the spring of 1995. Ruth had attended an Anglican World Relief and Development meeting in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, where she met a woman from Uganda. When Ruth asked how women from Nova Scotia could offer specific assistance to the women of Uganda, the answer was to assist with her village's transportation needs. After much prayer and the support of the Dean and clergy of the Chebucto region, 77 year old Ruth and two female Friends aged 73 and 87 personally delivered a new crewcab truck to the Diocese of Uganda. Helping others was a way of life for her and her closets are full of various community service volunteer awards. She became interested in Blind Sport Nova Scotia and became a national presence in the sport of blind lawn bowling. She coached one of her blind athletes to a Canadian championship. Even after the onset of pneumonia, she visited her Friends, sympathising with them on their aches and pains and encouraging them to carry on. 'Praise and pray, and peg away!' was her motto and a day didn't pass without her doing all three as fervently as she could. She was a natural teacher and, like all the best teachers, she taught by example. When Elliott, her husband and best friend died, she wrote a book about his life, All Rise - a clever title that commented both on Elliott's judgeship and Ruth's sure and certain hope of the Resurrection. A service of Festive Evensong commemorating the life of this remarkable Christian will be held at the Cathedral Church of All Saints', Tower Road, Halifax on Friday, February 11th at 4: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Restoration Fund of the Cathedral Church of All Saints, the University of King's College Development Fund, the Diocese of Fredericton Choir School, or a charity of your choice.

Peacefully, in Hamilton, Ontario on 29 November, 2005. Loved husband of Jean (BLACKBURN,) father of Judy (Sam SEE) and Jennifer (Stephen McCANSE,) and grandfather of Riley.

He joined the Canadian Officers' Training Corps while at McMaster University in 1940 and enlisted in the regular Canadian Army in 1942, going overseas as a member of the Royal Canadian Dragoons. A wireless operator, he developed a new method of teaching wireless to the Canadians, later adopted by the British. He served as a wireless instructor at Sandhurst Military College in England before joining the G.H.Q.

He was attached to the Belgian Special Air Service Regiment and operated with them through north-west Europe and was awarded the Croix de Guerre (avec Palme) medal by the Belgian government in 1947. After the war, he rejoined the Royal Canadian Dragoons and became a fully qualified paratrooper at Camp Shilo, Manitoba. He served in various posts in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.A. until retiring in January 1951.

Earl CAMERON, 89, voice of the National
News anchor retired in 1976
Was announcer at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for 32 years
By Jim BAWDEN, Television Columnist, Page A18
Earl CAMERON was often called Canada's best-known anonymous man. The onetime warehouse worker from Moose Jaw became Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's " Voice of Doom" when he replaced Lorne GREENE on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's national radio news in the late 1940s and Larry HENDERSON on The National in 1959.
CAMERON, 89, one of only seven men to anchor The National, died Thursday in Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie after a lengthy illness.
Over the years, CAMERON's uncanny resemblance to the mythical "man-in-the-street" Canadian made him a well-respected television figure. Television critic Bob BLACKBURN wrote in 1965: " CAMERON is not just the image of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news, he is the cultivated image of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation itself: solid, patriarchal, Gibraltary!"
CAMERON took early retirement from Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1976, at age 61 and after 32 years with the corporation. Throughout his Canadian Broadcasting Corporation career, he had always been officially a staff announcer. He remained one of the regular newsreaders on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's The World At Six but had become disappointed over his decreasing role on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television.
On his last day, he simply dropped off a note for his department head and left for Florida. That was in keeping with a man who was typically "quiet, not ostentatious" said CTV anchor Lloyd ROBERTSON, who knew CAMERON from his early days at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
"I came to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1954 and we were required to do it all. A typical day for Earl involved reading weather on radio, then hosting a radio jazz show, doing station breaks, too. At 9: 30 he'd stroll over to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News' studio to begin script rehearsals for The National, which went live at 11 p.m. He had to do it all, and he did so calmly, rarely making a mistake. We were required to memorize the pronunciation of difficult names and foreign words, and Earl made it all seem very natural."
Born in 1915, CAMERON ran the gamut of business training and normal school in his Moose Jaw hometown. Local radio station CHAB hired him as a summer replacement at $20 a month.
CAMERON said in 1966 that,1" got the best advice ever from my first boss. He explained to me I was reading for just one person. He said to go into a house, and you'll find one person listening to a radio. Try to talk to just this one person."
CAMERON later moved to Winnipeg radio station CKY for a year, and in 1944 joined Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio in Toronto, from which he rose to top anchor status.
In 1965 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation executives began publicly grumbling that CAMERON was doing too many outside commercials. His association with Rambler cars and Crest toothpaste, though allowed by the union contract, was unseemly for the voice of The National, they said. Under intense pressure, he ended his lucrative contracts.
His television star went into eclipse the next year, when he was replaced as headliner of The National by Stanley BURK/BURKE.
There was never any doubt about CAMERON's announcing abilities his reading was impeccable, but it was the system that was at issue. He was dropped in an effort to break the union jurisdiction which dictated that newsmen could write the scripts but announcers could only read it on air.
Television critic Dennis BRAITHWAITE wrote at the time: "The national news didn't make Earl CAMERON. He made the national news."
CAMERON did not mention his departure on air. For his last broadcast as announcer he simply said, "Now this is Earl CAMERON, saying goodnight for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television News."
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation offered him a job as host of the public affairs series Viewpoint, reading viewers' letters, but that show was canned in 1976 after an 18-year run.
Retired, CAMERON moved his family to LeFroy, on Lake Simcoe. He did commercials for American Motors and Krona margarine, golfed daily and watched Global's 6 p.m. news.
His retirement didn't stop SCTV from satirizing him and Lloyd ROBERTSON as duelling, argumentative anchors Earl Camembert and Floyd Robertson in skits CAMERON liked because "in this business a little publicity always helps."
CAMERON leaves his wife, Patty; son, Hal; and three grandchildren.

Morris LIEBOVITZ
By Gerry BLACKLOCK, Friday, March 4, 2005 - Page S7
Gerry BLACKLOCK of Fergus, Ontario, writes about Morris LIEBOVITZ, whose obituary appeared on Wednesday.
In 1961, I had the good fortune to be a student in Morris LIEBOVITZ's Grade 13 math classes at Galt Collegiate. He came to us fresh from teachers' training with new methods and great enthusiasm. He was our homeroom teacher and was only six years older than we were.
He was fun, and our Grade 13 class claimed him. He, in turn, inspired us. One of his ideas was to challenge us with "the problem of the week" and while we worked at surprising him by solving it (maybe), he was busy helping other students who needed assistance with new concepts.
In June, 2002, Galt Collegiate celebrated 150 years with a weekend reunion. I was thrilled to find Mr. LIEBOVITZ stationed in the centre of the reception area. He was delighted to learn that I had completed a degree in mathematics.
He was a great teacher and a warm caring person.

In loving memory of my very dear granddaughter, Nicole KENNEDY who passed away 4 years ago today, July 9th 2001.
I think of you as living
In the hearts of those you touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And you were loved so much.
Your memory I treasure
You walk beside me every day
Unseen, unheard yet always there
Too dearly loved to ever be forgotten.
