A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

He will be sadly missed by his children Bonnie and David BURRELL, Randy and Val KERR, Chris and Harold RANK, Bill KERR, Tracy and Janice KERR, all of Dorchester and by his grandchildren Jennifer and Joe JOHNSTON, Stacey and Matt DOWNING, Nick and Jordan RANK, Shawna and Jessica KERR and Brody and Brittany KERR as well as his great grandchildren Grace and Abbey DOWNING and Leaha JOHNSTON. Predeceased by his parents Ann and Bill KERR, infant son Michael, his sister Pearl COOK, brothers John and Bill KERR, and cousin Bertie ROBINSON, Lloyd will be remembered by many extended family members and Friends.
Lloyd spent his entire business career with Wolverine Tube retiring after 48 years in 1993, as President and Chief Executive Officer. During those years, as he rose through various positions, he made it a priority to know every employee and to greet each one by name. Lloyd also served as president of the Purchasing Agents Association and the Canadian Copper and Brass Development Association as well as Chairman of the Board of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating and the London Industrial Development Board. This self-made man truly left his mark in the business world. Lloyd's leisure passions were golf, baseball and hockey. He also enjoyed a game of gin with his buddies at Tony's or the company of his poker buddies, in Florida. In his younger years, he coached the Wolverine Tube hockey team in the Industrial Hockey League. Later on, he sponsored the Lloyd's Boys championship slo-pitch team and hockey team as well as minor sports in Dorchester. Whenever possible, he was in the stands cheering them on. When he wasn't out golfing himself, he was watching it on T.V. or cheering on the Blue Jays or the Maple Leafs. The family will greet Friends at Forest Lawn Memorial Chapel for visitation on Friday July 29th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. where a celebration of Lloyd's life will be held on Saturday, July 30th at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Victorian Order of Nurses or the charity of your choice. There will be a memory box on display for any favorite memories or acknowledgements that you may want to share.
Dad, they say it's not what you take when you leave, it's what you leave behind. You have left a close and devoted family who will miss you dearly. Give Mom a hug for us.

Evelyne ROBINSON
By Kathy COOK, Friday, April 15, 2005, Page A20
Farmer's wife, church organist, mother, grandmother. Born January 13, 1916, in Osprey Township, Grey County, Ontario Died March 8 of heart failure, aged 89.
Evelyne ROBINSON led a simple life. She was born on a farm on the 12th Line, atop Blue Mountain, in Ontario. She met her husband, they bought their own farm, and raised a family -- all on that 12th Line.
It was not an easy life. Her mother needed domestic help, so Evelyne only went to school until Grade 6. Yet Evelyne was a strong and willful girl. At 16, she'd earned her driver's license. When she met Ross, a handsome barn-builder helping her father, she'd reached out and shook his hand, a precocious move for a farm girl back then.
In 1945, Evelyne's dreams came true. She and Ross, married with (then) three young children, bought their own farm, three kilometres down the road from Evelyne's birth home. There was no electricity. The house was so cold in the winter that the family all slept together in the living-room to keep warm. The only money came when they sold some cream or some eggs. So they lived off the land.
She stopped driving shortly after marrying. Husbands did the driving in Osprey. So she was basically confined to the isolated farm. Was she lonely? I asked her once. No, she was busy and always looking for more to do. Her mother gave her pieces of old material, and so Evelyne made quilts. She spent many evenings patching work clothes over an oil lamp. "Ross would be hung together with his patches," she said.
Evelyne was a light-hearted woman, almost childish with enthusiasm for life's smaller joys. She'd bring the odd baby pig into the house as a pet. She raised orphaned raccoons. She permissively allowed her children to run wild around the farm. For 25 years she played the organ every Sunday at Rob Roy United Church.
And she sheltered her children from the farm's harsher truths. Somehow my mother, Evelyne's daughter, managed to go through childhood without ever realizing animals were killed on the farm.
When I was young, I remember she'd show me her big arm muscles and strong hands. "These are farm hands," she'd say. Sometimes, later in life, she complained just a little. It was my grandfather who got all the respect for making their farm into a success, but she always worked just as hard as he did, she'd say.
Eventually they sold the farm for a hefty profit and retired to Collingwood. But there were more hardships. Evelyne's eldest daughter struggled with schizophrenia. She lost both her sons to early deaths. Still, when we visited, Evelyne laughed, teased, baked, fussed over the dog, made us mittens, played the piano, and each night wanted to play euchre.
When Ross died in 2001, she rose to the challenge of living alone. Ross had always controlled the finances rather tightly. One of her first decisions as a widow of independent means was to keep the heat on all through the night. At 85, she believed she deserved that. From there, she started doing home improvement projects, never consulting anyone first, she simply hired contractors. It seemed like she played a game of making the man's decisions.
In her last years, she rarely chose to leave the house, but her days were filled, as they'd always been, with laughter, sewing, playing piano, baking, and entertaining the dog. And each time I visited, she'd ask to go on a drive back to the 12th Line.
She taught all of us who grew up watching her an understanding that happiness comes from enjoying life's simple pleasures. She leaves behind two surviving daughters, seven grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.
And soon she will be reunited with Ross, buried together on that 12th Line.
Kathy COOK is Evelyne's granddaughter.

Robert FREEDOM, Surgeon 1941-2005
The director of cardiology at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children was a widely respected surgeon who wrote hefty textbooks and played a key role in the royal commission that investigated the mystery deaths of 36 baby patients
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, May 19, 2005, Page S11
Halifax -- Known by his peers as "Mr. Pediatric Cardiology," Robert FREEDOM was widely respected for his clinical skills and for his training of cardiologists from around the world, and as a prolific author of clinical research and textbooks, several of which are considered classics in the field. Less happily, he figured large in a sensational 1981 murder probe and a subsequent royal commission that investigated the deaths of more than 30 babies at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children
It wasn't uncommon to find the head of cardiology at Sick Kids hunched over his desk in the early morning hours writing. Over his career, Dr. FREEDOM wrote more than 400 medical papers, 125 book chapters, and eight textbooks, including the formidably large Atlas of Congenital Heart Disease and the Natural and Modified History of Congenital Heart Disease. Published in 2003, it was the last of his textbooks.
Robert Mark FREEDOM was a native of Maryland, where he and his twin brother, Gary, experienced a disruptive childhood. Shortly after they were born, their parents divorced and they had virtually no contact with their father, a neurologist and an eighth-generation physician. When they were still young, they moved to Southern California and were soon placed together in boarding schools and residential homes. The brothers remained close throughout their lives.
Robert studied medicine at the University of California at Los Angeles; Gary went on to earn a PhD in geography. Initially focused on neurosurgery, Dr. FREEDOM soon found a new interest. At medical school, he was asked to perform four autopsies on babies or children with congenital cardiac disease; from that experience, he decided to pursue a new path in medicine.
After finishing medical school, he was accepted for an internship and residency in pediatrics at Children's Hospital Boston. While there, he also studied pediatric cardiology. In 1972, he was recruited by Richard ROWE, then director of pediatric cardiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, to become the director of the diagnostic cardiac catheterization laboratory and assistant professor of pediatrics. When Dr. ROWE, who had become his mentor, was recruited to take over as director of cardiology at the Hospital for Sick Children in 1973, he asked Dr. FREEDOM to join him in Toronto.
Dr. FREEDOM moved to Canada in the summer of 1974 and spent the rest of his career there, dedicating himself to the hospital and the faculty of medicine at the University of Toronto. But the next decade did not unfold so smoothly, and there were times when he must have questioned his choice of careers, or at least hospitals.
On March 25, 1981, police accused Sick Kids nurse Susan NELLES of murdering baby Justin COOK. Two days later, she was charged with murdering three other infants. More than a year later, in May of 1982, Ms. NELLES was discharged at a preliminary hearing. A royal commission headed by Mr. Justice Samuel GRANGE of the Supreme Court of Ontario then examined the circumstances surrounding Ms. NELLES's arrest and prosecution.
The commission also tried to reconstruct events at the hospital from June 30, 1980, to March 22, 1981, to determine whether the babies died of heart defects or were murdered by overdoses of the heart drug digoxin. All told, the commission investigated 36 deaths.
In September of 1983, Dr. FREEDOM testified before the commission that he had told several of his relatives that "someone is killing our babies" after he learned that large amounts of digoxin had been found in a baby who died in March of 1981. Days later, he repeated the comment to Metro Toronto Police Staff-Sergeant Anthony WARR. He said he was convinced that something malevolent had transpired at the hospital after three babies died with high levels of the heart drug in their bodies.
"I believe I made the comment to my wife or my brother-in-law and his wife late on the Saturday night [March 21] after I heard of the digoxin readings on [infant] Allana MILLER," Dr. FREEDOM said. "The digoxin levels in the baby had been low [in the afternoon] and then they were sky-high. I thought something malicious was going on."
Dr. FREEDOM testified that when he learned of the high readings on the night of March 21, he thought, "My God, how can she go from a very low level to a very high level?... I wonder if it's murder?"
The commission also heard that he was so alarmed about the deaths that he told another doctor during a catherization on Justin COOK: "If this baby dies, we have a murderer on our hands."
Judge GRANGER later heard that Dr. FREEDOM had provided a vital link in the murder investigation when he told a homicide detective that problems with an intravenous line could have resulted in a digoxin overdose slowly infusing into the baby's body over several hours, making it possible for Ms. NELLES to have given the drug to the infant before she went off duty on the evening before the infant died.
At the preliminary hearing, Ms. NELLES was cleared of all charges after the judge found insufficient evidence to send the case to trial.
In 1986, Dr. FREEDOM succeeded his mentor as director of cardiology at Sick Kids, a post he held until the fall of 2000, when he stepped down because of failing health.
"We're one of the largest and best-known divisions of pediatric cardiology in the world," said Lee BENSON, a long-time colleague.
A big burly man, Dr. FREEDOM demanded high standards not only from himself but from everyone around him, and he could be intimidating. During his teaching rounds, medical students were known to tremble with fright. But, as a professor, he won his fair share of awards. He also helped in developing a three-year, sub-specialty training program in pediatric cardiology at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Dr. FREEDOM was known among colleagues for his encyclopedic memory. If another doctor so much as mentioned a study in an obscure publication, he was able to recall not only details but authors and publication date, said his friend and colleague Shi-Joon YOO.
His patients loved him. "The parents worshipped the ground he walked on," said Dr. BENSON, adding that years later he remembered their names. Obsessive about his work, he spent all hours of the day and night in the hospital. "He lived at Sick Kids," said his wife, Penny, whom he met in the late 1980s after a couple of failed marriages.
Despite suffering from diabetes, Dr. FREEDOM didn't take care of his own health. He enjoyed Scotch, smoking cigars and eating whatever he desired. "Bob did things his way," Dr. BENSON said.
Not one to usually take vacations, he changed his mind after a trip to Granville Ferry in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley. Located on the Annapolis River, he fell in love with the place and would spend a month there each year until he retired.
Dr. FREEDOM received several awards, including the Council Award of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, presented to Ontario physicians who are judged to have been closest to meeting society's vision of an "ideal" physician. In 2000, he was named to the Order of Ontario.
Robert FREEDOM was born on February 27, 1941, in Baltimore. He died on May 7, 2005, in Halifax of renal failure as a result of diabetes. He was 64. He leaves his wife Penny and stepson Jonathan.

KOCK, Henry
A leading authority on native woody plants, died of brain cancer on December 25, 2005, at the age of 53. Dubbed 'Mr. Arboretum,' Henry was a horticulturist at the University of Guelph Arboretum for almost 25 years until diagnosis in July 2004. Born in the Sarnia area, Henry grew up working in the family business, Huronview Nurseries. He graduated from the University of Guelph in 1977 with a focus on horticulture. Henry was a longtime fixture in Guelph. In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, he toured the province with his talks and slide shows, inspring countless people to protect wild places, to propagate native plant species, and to liberate their gardens from pesticides. Drawn to a landscape filled with sturdy, individual elm trees that had managed to resist the ravages of Dutch elm disease, Henry created the Elm Recovery Project, which will be his greatest legacy. He traversed Ontario, collecting seeds from sur viving elms. He planted and tended young elms for eventual dissemination back into the landscape. In 1991, Henry met the love of his life, Anne HANSEN, an artist and drama secretary at the University of Toronto. Anne and Henry blended her bicycle advocacy with his biological eco-activism. He rallied for peace in Iraq, renewable energy, public transit, and urban bicycling. He helped spearhead the Guelph Organic Conference, and every year, he and Anne attended International Women's Day in Toronto. Henry co-founded the Hillside Festival, which has become one of Canada's premiere folk music events. Henry received the Governor General's Award for Forest Stewardship in 1998. After Henry's diagnosis, he enjoyed 16 months of relatively robust health. Despite being on chemotherapy, he was able to bike, hike, and go on canoe trips. Henry had completed the first draft of a book on growing native trees from seed. Several of his botany colleagues now hope to complete this project. One of the last things he did this fall was to mount an old, decorated bicycle on the wall at the front of the house, a fitting symbol of how he stepped lightly on the planet. Henry is survived by his wife, Anne; his parents, Mary and Dick in Bright's Grove; his brother John COOK (Cynthia) in Forest; his sister Helen RYKENS (Dan McDERMOTT) in Toronto; as well as a neice and two nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Irene. A celebration of Henry's life will take place at the River Run Centre, 35 Woolwich Street, Guelph, Saturday, January 7, 2006 from 2-4 p.m. Donations to the Elm Recovery Project (519-824-4120 ext. 52113) in Henry's memory will be greatly appreciated.

KOCKA, Henry
leading authority on native woody plants, died of brain cancer on December 25, 2005, at the age of 53. Dubbed "Mr. Arboretum," Henry was a horticulturist at the University of Guelph Arboretum for almost 25 years until diagnosis in July 2004. Born in the Sarnia area, Henry grew up working in the family business, Huronview Nurseries. He graduated from the University of Guelph in 1977 with a focus on horticulture. Henry was a longtime fixture in Guelph. In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, he toured the province with his talks and slide shows, inspiring countless people to protect wild places, to propagate native plant species, and to liberate their gardens from pesticides. Drawn to a landscape filled with sturdy, individual elm trees that had managed to resist the ravages of Dutch elm disease, Henry created the Elm Recovery Project, which will be his greatest legacy. He traversed Ontario, collecting seeds from surviving elms. He planted and tended young elms for eventual dissemination back into the landscape. In 1991, Henry met the love of his life, Anne HANSEN, an artist and drama secretary at the University of Toronto. Anne and Henry blended her bicycle advocacy with his biological eco-activism. He rallied for peace in Iraq, renewable energy, public transit, and urban bicycling. He helped spearhead the Guelph Organic Conference, and every year, he and Anne attended International Women's Day in Toronto. Henry co-founded the Hillside Festival, which has become one of Canada's premiere folk music events. Henry received the Governor General's Award for Forest Stewardship in 1998. After Henry's diagnosis, he enjoyed 16 months of relatively robust health. Despite being on chemotherapy, he was able to bike, hike, and go on canoe trips. Henry had completed the first draft of a book on growing native trees from seed. Several of his botany colleagues now hope to complete this project. One of the last things he did this fall was to mount an old, decorated bicycle on the wall at the front of the house, a fitting symbol of how he stepped lightly on the planet. Henry is survived by his wife, Anne; his parents, Mary and Dick in Bright's Grove; his brother John COOK (Cynthia) in Forest; his sister Helen RYKENS (Dan McDERMOTT) in Toronto; as well as a niece and two nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Irene. A celebration of Henry's life will take place at the River Run Centre, 35 Woolwich Street, Guelph, Saturday, January 7, 2006 from 2-4 p.m. Donations to the Elm Recovery Project (519-824-4120 ext. 52113) in Henry's memory will be greatly appreciated. (www.caringbridge.com. log-in is henrykock). (Arrangements entrusted to the Wall-Custance Funeral Home and Chapel, 206 Norfolk Street, Guelph N1H 4K3; 1-519-822-0051; www.wallcustance.com).
