CHAMBERLAIN, Dorothy M.L. (VANKERKHOFF)

CHAMBERS, Ken
In loving memory of my dear husband Ken, who passed away February 2nd, 2002.
We shared a bond, too deep for words,
And a Friendship that I celebrate
Every day of the year.
You were always there for me
Listening to my dreams and
Supporting me in all I did.
Though the years may bring changes
You will always be in my thoughts.
You were the sunshine of my life,
The hero in my world,
And eternal love will keep you
Forever in my heart.
Loved and remembered always, your wife Gloria.

In memory of our Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather, Graham CHAMBERS, who passed away July 27, 2004.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you,
On the day God called you home.
We think of you in silence,
And often speak your name,
Now all we have are memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Those memories are our keepsakes,
With which we'll never part.
God has you in His keeping,
We have you in our hearts.

L'HEUREUX, Joseph Willard, B.A., M.A., LLD
Peacefully at Toronto General Hospital on April 2, 2005, age 87. Professor and Dean of Physical Education at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, for many years, Bill was a respected and beloved scholar, teacher, coach, sportsman and gentleman. Educated at Assumption College (B.A. Classics, 1937), Ontario College of Education at the University of Toronto (1939) and the University of Michigan (M.A., 1953), he received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of New Brunswick in 1967 for his contributions to physical education, fitness and amateur sport. Bill was the author of numerous articles on sport and physical education as well as the book Hockey for Boys (1962) and an internationally acclaimed hockey instructional film used by, among others, the Soviets in the 1950s. He wrote, with the Rev. David Bauer and Max Bell, a definitive Report on Amateur Hockey for the federal government in 1960, outlining challenges for Canada's national game related to education and professionalism. An accomplished athlete, he played defence for Windsor Bulldogs, Chatham Maroons, University of Toronto Varsity Blues, Maxville and Renfrew Millionaires while pursuing his education and starting his teaching career in high schools. He joined the University of Western Ontario as lecturer and football coach in 1950. Generations of students developed their professional philosophies in his course on ethics in sport, and more generally from the self-contained, modest model he provided. He was active in London as a member of the Roman Catholic School board, and he promoted high school athletics as secretary of W.O.S.S.A. and in countless other ways. He was the first Chairman of the federal government's Council on Fitness and Amateur Sport in 1963. He is a member of the Sports Halls of Fame at both University of Western Ontario and University of Windsor. Bill was born in Port Arthur, Ontario, on February 28, 1918, the second child of Wilfrid L'HEUREUX, a banker who had played rover on three Allan Cup-winning Port Arthur hockey teams, and Irene MORRIS, the undisputed source of his tolerance and good humour. Bill's learning was influenced by the Jesuits in his youth and the Basilian Fathers at university. He loved his wife and family, his God, Winston Churchill, poetry, fishing with John P Metras, Beyond the Fringe, Chariots of Fire, and vegetable gardening. Predeceased by his beloved wife Mary Viola (1997,) his sister Mary Lou (1992,) and daughter Mary Kay AJERSCH (1982.) Survived by his daughter Susan CHAMBERS and her husband Jack of Toronto, son-in-law Frank AJERSCH and his wife Brede MERIGAN of Montreal, and his son Willard and wife Janet of Toronto eight grandchildren, Christopher, Alison and Jennifer CHAMBERS Mark and Susan AJERSCH; Will, Josie and Robert L'HEUREUX, and three great' grand_sons, Luc, Ty and Leo CHAMBERS. Also survived by his brother, Morris L'HEUREUX and wife Thelma of Sarnia, his sister Elizabeth BRENNAN of London, and many nieces and nephews.

Dorothy Hastings CHAMBERS
By Marge KELLEY, Friday, June 10, 2005, Page A18
Teacher, librarian, consultant, traveller, shopper, gourmet, bon vivant. Born around April 2, 1911, in Toronto. Died mid-December, 2004, in Toronto, of natural causes, aged 93.
I first met Dorothy at a party in the 1960s. She was dancing barefoot on the grass. I shall never forget the visual impression of that first meeting -- a large woman wearing a brightly coloured muumuu, wine glass in hand, moving with the grace of an oversized Hawaiian dancer. As I got to know "Do" I realized that her size was not the only thing that was large about her. She had a generosity that could only be called large; her sense of humour and her capacity for Friendship were of an equal size. Do didn't talk much about herself; bits and pieces of her life came out over our long Friendship. She kept her own counsel, as the saying goes.
Dorothy was born in Toronto. Her middle name came from a grandparent who owned a farm in the east end of Toronto and after whom Hastings Avenue was named. Her mother died when she and her sister Mary were young, and the girls went to "Aunt Bunty," a teacher at Central Technical School. This competent spinster took in the two young girls, enrolled them in a Catholic boarding school, and took them to France with her in the summers while she studied French and art. Roman Catholicism never appealed to Dorothy, but her knowledge of all the saints remained with her throughout life. She could always evoke the correct patron saint for help with travel, lost items or lost causes. Her love of languages, travel, art and music were developed during the years with Aunt Bunty, with whom she lived until Bunty's death.
Dorothy started her teaching career outside of Toronto, as was the custom at that time. She returned to the city to teach Grade 1 at Winchester School. She attended a reunion at Winchester a few years ago, and was thrilled to be the star of the show, recognized and acknowledged by former students. In the 1960's came the "firsts" of her career -- one of the first teachers appointed to the new position of teacher-librarian with the Toronto Board of Education, one of the first to be sent by the board to obtain a degree in library science (she chose the University of British Columbia), one of the first appointed to the new position of library consultant, one of the first to instruct teacher-librarians in the newly created Ministry of Education summer programs. Dorothy finished her career as teacher librarian at Roden School. She retired at age 65 in 1976.
After retirement, Dorothy pursued her interests in travel, arts and music. A trip to Budapest for opera, spas and pastries was one of her favourites. She intensified her mania for shopping many times my cupboard was stocked with gourmet items after Do had been on a trip to Buffalo. We could never discourage her from her Christmas largesse and finally gave up and accepted her many gifts with good grace. Recently she gave up the far-flung trips, but went on outings to Buffalo and St. Jacobs until this year.
Dorothy lost many Friends in recent years and her sister Mary died less than a year ago. Two weeks before she died we went to Sleuth of Baker Street to buy mystery novels, and just one week before, we did a big shopping at Loblaws. She said she now had food and reading material to last her through the winter, should it be too nasty for her to get out.
Dorothy died as she had lived -- independent and keeping her own counsel. She was sitting in her chair, fully dressed, listening to classical music. She was never ill, she was never hospitalized, she never had to move to a nursing home -- and she didn't have to clean out her apartment.
Marge is a friend of Dorothy CHAMBERS.

SIMMONDS, Leonard Claude
Having recently entered his 89th year, surrounded by his loving wife Betty and their family, passed peacefully into the presence of God at Uxbridge on Wednesday, July 27, 2005. Born July 19, 1917 in Toronto, Claude was the cherished son of the late Arthur Claude and Ada May SHOBROOK. Deeply missed by his adored and adoring wife of more than 63 years, Betty Graham McNEILL and their seven children and their spouses, 26 grandchildren and their spouses, and 7 great-grandchildren: Ruth SIMMONDS and her children Louise KORHONEN and Chris HAZLETON, and Danielle; Shelagh and Leigh POPOV and Chloe and Sophie; Wesley KORHONEN and Laura KORHONEN. David and Suzanne SIMMONDS, Paul T. and Lisa SIMMONDS and Mackenzie; Anne Marie, Mark, Elizabeth, Jonathan, Peter and Rebecca. Reverend Dr. Anne SIMMONDS and her children, Gregory and Johanna CHAMBERS; and her husband Bruce BENNETT and his children Samantha, Kirsten and Christopher. John and Deborah SIMMONDS, Graham and Johanna SIMMONDS and Charles; Kathryn and Dan CLEMMER and Brent and Eric; Matthew, Kristen, Jack and Henry. Bruce and Tamara SIMMONDS and Benjamin, Joshua, Daniel and James. Paul and Laurie SIMMONDS and William. Lois WEAVER and and her children Rachel and Jessica. Predeceased by brothers Herbert A. and David S. Loving brother of sisters Gladys SMITH and Arthur, Dorothy and William EBERLIN, Mary STURGESS and Reverend Dr. William, Madeline SIMMONDS and sister-in-law Barbara SIMMONDS (Mrs. David S.). Predeceased by beloved parents-in-law John Herbert and Cassie McNEILL. Lovingly remembered brother-in-law of Reverend W. Arnold and Helen McNEILL, Alan and Marion McNEILL, Margaret and Rev. Morry WOROZBYT and Ruth H. McNEILL. Fondly remembered by Aunt Bertha TORRANS. Special 'Uncle Claude' to many nieces, nephews and their spouses and families, and to generations of Sunday School students at Immanuel Baptist and Glen Major churches. Special friend and mentor to scores of long-time Friends at Immanuel and Glen Major. Dad lived a full life of accomplishment and service in the name of his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He was raised in North Toronto and Rosedale, he graduated with highest honours in 1934 from Northern Secondary. With university not an option in the heart of the Great Depression, Dad joined his father A.C. SIMMONDS in the family electrical and radio parts business, commencing work on July 2, 1934 in perhaps the most difficult economic circumstances in history. He augmented his knowledge of radio through night courses at Radio College of Canada. At the outbreak of the war, Dad became a member of the 48th Highlanders Reserve, and in 1942 took a leave of absence from business to join the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, Research and Development Branch, where he served in Ottawa in the rank of Sergeant-Major through the end of the war in 1945. One of his favourite of the many stories he used to tell was of his Commanding Officer Colonel who asked him for a job in the dying days of the war. Despite the challenge of the time he entered business, together with his father and younger brother David, Dad successfully built A.C. Simmonds and Sons to become the leading Canadian national distributor of electrical parts and electronic components, hi-fi, and communications equipment throughout the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's. The company was continually on the leading edge of market response to changing technology and successfully introduced many new electronic products to Canada. In 1977, Dad and his brother David recognized the expanded opportunity that would be available from the division of the Company between their families in order to accommodate the entrepreneurial abilities and drive of the next generation. This was accomplished effective January 1, 1978 with the assumption by David, his family and associates of the Lenbrook Division of A.C. Simmonds and Sons. Incorporated at that time, Lenbrook Inc. went on to become the base for the creation of numerous successful businesses including Clearnet Inc. and Air I.Q. Under Dad's leadership, A.C. Simmonds & Sons Ltd. also achieved tremendous growth and success after 1977, and spawned many different entrepreneurial enterprises including Midland Canada, Dynacharge Inc., Viewstar Canada, and ClubLink Corporation. In 1987, the family, together with other business associates, achieved control of Glenayre Electronics Ltd. of Vancouver, and Dad became Chairman until the annual meeting after the successful sale of the company in 1989. Dad had many Electronic Industry involvements, honours and associations but perhaps the one of which he was most proud of was his acceptance as a charter member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, notwithstanding the fact that the Depression has robbed him of the opportunity to actually become a qualified engineer. He had the honour of Chairing the annual Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers conference on two separate occasions. Always open to technological advancement, he travelled extensively as a guest lecturer for International Business Machines Corporation at their worldwide Ideas seminars in the 1970's. His love of people and his common touch was evidenced by his practice of personally greeting every employee at their workstation after any absence from business for more than a week. Most importantly, in the tradition established by A.C. Simmonds, Dad always conducted business with a widely recognized level of integrity that was never in doubt. Dad was a faithful and very active member of Immanuel Baptist Church for almost 80 years, fulfilling many different roles over the years including Young Peoples leader, Sunday School teacher, Juniors leader, and Board of Management member. He was General Superintendent of the Sunday School for 15 years, and was a member of the Board of Deacons for more than 50 years, serving as Chairman for many years. At the time of his passing, he continued as an Honorary Life Deacon, and one of the three Trustees of the Church. Although Dad did not possess the level of musical talent prevalent in his family, he did have a deep and abiding love of the hymns of the church, and had an incredible ability for memorization of many of them in their entirety. From the time of the purchase in 1947 of the family summer retreat in the Township of Uxbridge, Dad's church involvement shifted during the summer months to his beloved Glen Major Church, affectionately known by the family as 'the little church'. For many years he served under Sunday School superintendents Mr. John HINGSTON and Mrs. Jenny JOHNSON as Adult Class teacher, and in the mid-fifties he began to assist his father A.C. SIMMONDS as a lay preacher, using the experience he developed as a member of the Soldiers and Airmen's Christian Association in Ottawa during the war. Upon the death of his father in 1966, Dad assumed full responsibility for the lay preaching and pastoral duties, and continued faithfully to lead the vibrant summer evening services so loved by many until his inability to do so five years ago. son David assumed responsibility for coordination of the services at that time. Most of Dad's Board involvements and commitments using his tremendous skill as a consensus builder were to a wide variety of Christian organizations, consistent with his strong belief in and love for both foreign and home missions work, and at the time of his passing he continued as an Honorary Life member of most of them. These included B.Y.U. (President 1949-50), Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship for 26 years. P (Chairman 1971-74), Ontario Pioneer Camp for 11 years (Chairman 1956-61), World Team (formerly R.B.M.U.) for 46 years, Yonge Street Mission for 44 years, Tyndale College and Seminary for 45 years (formerly O.B.C. / O.T.S., Chairman 1976-82), and Scripture Union for 50 years. In 1978 he joined the Boa

Boyfriend charged in toddler's death
Toddler found dead in wooded lot near Cambridge
Mother's boyfriend charged with first-degree murder
By Nicolaas VAN RIJN, Staff Reporter
The desperate search for a little boy just shy of his second birthday has ended with the discovery of his body in a wooded lot on the outskirts of Cambridge and the arrest of a man on a charge of first-degree murder.
Police found the body of 22-month-old Donny CLUBB in a wooded area between the Grand River and the Whistle Bear Golf Club early yesterday, but would not say what or who led them there.
"Those human remains we believe to be that of Donovan CLUBB," Waterloo regional police Insp. Bryan LARKIN told a news conference, adding an autopsy must still be done. "We're in the early hours of investigation at the crime scene."
The discovery left the little boy's parents devastated.
His mother, 21-year-old Courtney CATTON of Chatham, was in disbelief, her sister Britney said.
"It isn't real," Britney CATTON said. "It's one thing to lose your baby, but to lose him to murder is another thing. It's unexplainable. The only break that my sister had in so long was her kid. He's never gone from her side, ever."
Matt CLUBB, the boy's father, was in shock. "I can't believe this is happening," said CLUBB, 21. "It's like a bad dream and I'm waiting to wake up. But I can't.
"I don't want to believe that this has really happened, I just miss him so much."
CLUBB said police "won't tell us much... if he was buried or not... because they don't want it to interfere with their investigation."
Pam CLUBB, the boy's grandmother, was overcome with grief. "I have a picture of him in a bathtub, he looks so beautiful.... I've been looking at it and all I want to do is hold him, but I can't."
Donny, who had been the subject of a seldom-used province-wide Amber Alert after his mother reported him missing Thursday, was last seen a week ago, when his mother's 35-year-old boyfriend took him on what police believe was a fishing trip in Simcoe, where he has connections.
"Donny's mother was well aware that Donny was going to go away for a period of time," said Chatham-Kent Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
"What they did there, we're not 100 per cent sure, but they were there for several days."
Casey PETERS, who lives next door to the Kitchener house sometimes used by the boyfriend, said she saw a little boy she believes was Donny in a car with the man Monday.
"The kid looked content," PETERS said.
The fishing trip was to have ended Wednesday, and the boy's mother went to bed that night thinking he was back home.
When she found Donny missing Thursday morning, FLIKWEERT said, she called police, who began a missing person investigation at 10: 48 a.m.
Donny's mother told police her boyfriend returned home to their Chatham residence late Wednesday night, and told her that her son was sleeping in the basement of their home.
The man left at about 5: 30 a.m. Thursday, but when CATTON went to look for Donny later that morning she couldn't find him, and called police.
After the boyfriend was arrested in Kitchener on Canada Day, he was interviewed by detectives with the assistance of members of the Ontario Provincial Police's behavioural sciences unit.
"The investigation revealed the circumstances surrounding the death of Donny," Deputy Chief Jack CHAMBERS of Chatham-Kent police said.
Neighbours of CATTON said she had been living with Donny and her boyfriend on Edgar Ave., a quiet street on Chatham's south side.
Rosaire STERLING and his wife Ruth, who have lived on Edgar for 37 years, recalled seeing the energetic child playing in front of their home.
"He used to play right on the road, but my three granddaughters played in the back," Sterling said. "I used to holler at the mum to pull him in. It's a calm street, but there's still a bit of traffic.
"These people didn't cause any rumpus," STERLING added. "They were good people."
Neighbours and other well-wishers began placing flowers in front of CATTON's house, roped off with yellow police crime scene tape, shortly after the news of Donny's death broke yesterday.
Among those paying their respects were Brenda McKINLAY, her young son Zack and boyfriend Bob.
After she placed a single red rose and a small stuffed teddy bear in front of the house, her boyfriend paused and considered the little boy standing beside them.
"Zack's the same age as little Donovan," said Bob.
"It kind of hits home."
Donny's father, meanwhile, was struggling to cope with his loss.
"He was an energetic little boy, always moving, always smiling, always full of life," CLUBB said. "I'll never have the chance to see him grow up and be with him."
Donny's grandmother, too, thought of the good time that will never come again.
"When he would cry, I would take him to the kitchen window and he would look outside, and he would laugh, but that will never happen again," Pam CLUBB said.
Charged with first-degree murder is Shawn Tyler PALMER, who was arrested Canada Day on a warrant charging him with abduction.
He is to make an audio court appearance in Chatham on Wednesday.

Amon BECKLES, 18: Loved to the end
Funerals are for the living and Amon BECKLES is no longer among the quick.
Couldn't hear the singing of Friends, the sobbing of family -- Amon! Amon! -- the cooing of a beautiful daughter, contented baby sounds that turned into occasional cranky crying over the course of a two-hour service.
Moesha is 18 months old. Her father was 18 years old.
She wore her hair in cute pink barrettes and was passed lovingly from lap to lap in the first pew.
He wore a dark suit and was laid out in an open casket at the front of the church.
Mourners converged there to keen and embrace before the lid was closed and the service began. The grieving mother collapses but strong arms lift her up; almost carry the broken woman to her seat.
A few teenage girls wear T-shirts depicting the deceased -- tall, lanky, handsome -- and below the picture, a legend, his epitaph: "A Friend Till The End."
And this is the end: A dead teenager, an early grave, one more slain black Toronto youth.
A week and a day ago, it was BECKLES who came to mourn a murdered friend -- not at this church, but at another quite like it, where swaying arms are held high during the singing of hymns and pastors deliver righteous sermons in fervid tones, peppered with interjections from the faithful of Yeah! and Amen!
They take their Bible seriously at the Abundant Life Assembly. They take their God seriously, and joyfully as well, but too often, this past year, with sorrow for their lost sons.
Seven times, said one pastor, has he attended at the funeral of a young man felled by bullets.
Four times, said the local member of provincial parliament, has he done the same.
One hundred and twenty gunshot victims over the past five years in this city, said another reverend.
The community, this community in particular, is being torn asunder by violence, and nobody knows that so well as the other mothers who came to church yesterday, themselves having buried sons. It is a heartbroken constituency that Nadia BECKLES now joins.
They believe that prayers can heal, that a strong faith can turn youths away from the intoxication of firearms and the gangbanging culture. But their church and their families are up against a formidable foe -- the alliance of the street with its macho strut, its drugs and dealing, the guns easily obtained and so frequently fired.
Just eight days ago, against the urgings of his mother and grandparents, BECKLES went to pay his respects at the West Toronto Seventh Day Adventist Church, there to see off his closest friend, Jamal HEMMINGS, Toronto's 66th homicide this year, the 46th shooting death. Outside the front door of that church -- reportedly because he knew too much, he had been with HEMMINGS when the latter was slain -- BECKLES became the city's 69th homicide victim and 48th by a firearm.
This time, though, police were present and watchful; scout cars parked outside, officers in and out of uniform inside.
Yet the threat remains, as does the fear that more blood will be spilled in retaliatory assassinations. If not on this day, among these mourners, then some other day or night, in another parking lot or street corner or suburban strip mall.
There will be more funerals, more babies to grow up without fathers, more hand wringing by politicians, pastors and police.
"Our faith community will not allow this to continue, will not allow this to happen again," vowed Reverend Don MEREDITH, one of the Christian leaders invited to offer "words of condolence" at the service.
"This is a wake-up call for our churches that disobey the command of God to go into the world. The world around us is our community. It's not over across the sea. It's about reaching out to our young people right around every one of you. You don't know our young people because you haven't gone out from behind the pulpits! You have failed and you need to get out into the streets."
Those angry dead-end streets where guns reign and killing is a casual option.
"They brought it to the steps of the church," MEREDITH thundered. "Where will it end? In the foyer, in the congregation, at the altar?
"I say to our parents... be parents. I will not candy coat it. You need to teach your women to be ladies. You need to teach your young men to be men."
There is a lot of scattershot blame out there right now and, I suggest, the good reverend is being too harsh with parents. Young men, young women as well, are not easy to control, no more so in this religiously conservative faith community. Faith is a comfort and a source of strength but it is not the answer for many young people and parents, however strict, cannot make it so.
Amon BECKLES was clearly raised a God-fearing boy and may yet have been a God-fearing young man when he crumpled, mortally wounded, on the pavement. Active in his church's youth circle, singing with the choir.
But there were dire complications in his life of late, predicaments that -- whether he brought them on himself or not -- he never shared with police, who might have done something to save his life.
If he revealed those problems to his Friends, tear-stained young people who crowded into the church yesterday, what could they do about it? What might some of them do about it now?
BECKLES' doting grandmother, Angela BECKLES, a sturdy woman strong of character, rose from her seat to describe the boy who was the first of her grandchildren, a youngster who loved to dance, who brought smiles to Friends and family, who could charm his way into nearly everybody's heart.
"Amon gave me 18 beautiful years. I loved him. Amon was a loving, caring person.... He was raised in love, regardless of what the media is saying. He was loved."
Loved also, by the teenage girl, Camille CHAMBERS, who sang so sweetly a song she'd written for young BECKLES.
Loved also by another young woman, Stacey EVERSLEY, whose poem of remembrance, "Cuz, What Can We Say!" was printed and distributed to the congregation: "You began the day like any normal day. Who was to know it would have ended this way?"
But Amon BECKLES, with his family making arrangements to get him out of the country, did know and he was scared.
Make a joyful sound and dance if you want, Mrs. BECKLES told the young people at this funeral. Dance for Amon, because that's what he would have wanted.
"Miss him. But let him go."
No more killing, then.
