Donald LAITIN, Quaker Elder 1927-2004
He travelled the world with a message of peace
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page S7
Aurora, Ontario -- As a Quaker, Donald LAITIN believed in peace. Once, as a member of a delegation of interfaith peace-builders to Jordan, Israel and Palestine, he presented Yasser Arafat's chief of staff with a copy of the painting The Peaceable Kingdom.
The work by the 19th-century Quaker artist Edward Hicks depicts Isaiah's prophesy of a harmonious world, represented by wild animals lying beside domestic ones. For Mr. LAITIN, the painting represented his fervent desire for world peace.
"He just identified with that picture very, very strongly," said Barbara HORVATH, a member of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers. "I think he felt it encapsulated the work that he wanted to do in the world. Donald just saw himself as being, or wanting to be, a force for peacefulness and helping reconcile differing people and differing views, as well as diminishing violence."
About 1,200 are active in the Canadian Quaker community, forming in local groups called monthly meetings. Like Mrs. HORVATH, Mr. LAITIN was a long-time member of historic Yonge Street Monthly Meeting in Newmarket, Ontario
Not only did Mr. LAITIN give Mr. Arafat's chief of staff a copy of The Peaceable Kingdom, but also those he met while on international volunteer missions and locally while making interfaith visitations. Mr. LAITIN hoped, as he described it, to "cross barriers" and bring about "unity through diversity." The visits began from his desire to end anti-Semitism and became one that wished to diminish differences between all faiths.
Still, he held the utmost respect for the beliefs of those he visited and had no desire to change them. One such occasion occurred several years ago when he showed up at the Solel Synagogue in Mississauga, Ontario He attended services and developed a Friendship with rabbi Lawrence ENGLANDER. "He was just the gentlest person you would ever want to meet," Rabbi ENGLANDER said. "You would see his face, very peaceful, beaming, friendly, certainly an inviting expression."
Quakers worship without appointed clergy, sitting in silence unless someone is led to speak. During meetings, Mr. LAITIN often spoke passionately about his hope for peace in the Middle East. Afterward, he greeted others with a warm, engulfing handshake and "Hello friend."
Born on Long Island, New York Mr. LAITIN was one of two children born to a Jewish couple, a dentist and a lawyer. When Mr. LAITIN was young, his mother adopted Quakerism and sent him to Quaker schools.
At 18, in 1945, and a student at the New York State College of Agriculture at Cornell University, Mr. LAITIN was drafted. Wrestling with his pacifist faith, Mr. LAITIN chose to serve in the army as a non-combatant, upsetting his mother and many of his Quaker Friends.
Returning to Cornell, he graduated and found a job with a food-processing companies, signing crop contracts with farmers and advising them when to plant. While on the job in rural Illinois, he fell in love with Barbara CRAWFORD, a farmer's daughter. They married in 1954. Mr. LAITIN later found a job with Continental Can and, in 1958, the company decided to move him to Toronto. Mr. LAITIN remained there until his retirement, becoming the director of research.
During the 1960s, he joined Yonge Street Monthly Meeting. He served on many committees and as its clerk during the '70s. According to Quaker practice, clerks, aided by spiritual guidance, facilitate meetings. While clerk, Mr. LAITIN oversaw refurbishment of the Yonge Street Meeting House, a structure built in 1912 by American Quakers.
Mr. LAITIN also served as clerk of Canadian Yearly Meeting, the national body of the Society of Friends. In 1986, he was one of 17 Canadian church leaders who condemned president Ronald Reagan's bid for congressional aid to the contras in Nicaragua. Mr. LAITIN also participated in many humanitarian initiatives. He spent two weeks volunteering in a hospital in the troubled Chiapas state of Mexico, rolling bandages and sorting clothes. In 1988, Mr. LAITIN was part of a delegation that took food and medical supplies to El Salvador.
Closer to home, Mr. LAITIN established the Orangeville Worship Group and served as a lay chaplain to the area's hospital. He and his wife supported a family claiming refugee status, obtaining their release from detention.
During the winter of 2003, with war in Iraq dominating the news, Mr. LAITIN organized several peace vigils in front of the Orangeville Town Hall, sometimes marching alone. Perhaps he was acting on words he had previously spoken during a meeting: "Tyranny thrives on the silence of good people."
Donald Robert LAITIN was born on July 3, 1927, on Long Island, New York He died at home in Mono Township, Ontario, on December 10, 2004, at 77. He leaves his wife, Barbara, children Ann, John and Suzanne, and sister Tobey Register.

COOPER, Grace
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear and beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother in her 95th year on Sunday, October 2, 2005. She is predeceased by her husband Ed COOPER. She was the devoted mother and mother-in-law of Betty and Franz COMPEER, of Mississauga, Jean (COOPER) CRAWFORD of Toronto and Ed COOPER and Marsha ZUEST of Milton. She was an extraordinary grandmother to Catherine LYLE (LAPLANTE,) Brian and Douglas LYLE, Dan CRAWFORD and Melissa (CHANDLER) Crawford, and Sam and Ben COOPER and a great grandmother to Christopher, Bradley and Mitchell. Grace will be warmly remembered for her love of family and Friends, travelling and all things that grew in gardens. She welcomed all to her home especially her travelling Friends, nephews and nieces who dropped in as they were on their way across the country and around the world. She loved to travel and continued to do so well into her late 80's. On these adventures she made many Friends whom she corresponded with over the years. She was always intensely interested in where you had been and what you had seen. Her other great love was gardening and she could quite literally grow anything. During her many travels her destination was usually a garden that she had read about. She shared her love of plants with many others and was a 50 year member of the Cloverleaf Garden Club. She had great respect for education as she had earned her Registered Nursing Certificate from the University of Alberta during the Depression and as such encouraged and supported her grandchildren at universities and colleges. Friends may call at Turner and Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga (Hwy. 10 North of Queen Elizabeth Way) 905-279-7663 from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel at 1: 00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5, 2005, cremation to follow. If desired, expressions of sympathy to the Arthritis Society of Canada would be appreciated or purchase a beautiful bouquet of flowers and give them to a friend in her memory.
