FERGUSON, Agnes Ann (née SMYTH)
Went to be with her Lord and her loving husband David early in the morning of November 15, 2005 after a lengthy illness. Mom will be forever missed by her fourteen children Terry Ann (John) CRISCIONE, Larry (Peggy) FERGUSON, Geraldine (Rick) OLDHAM, Barry (Betty) FERGUSON, Diane (David) MITCHELSON, Don (Mary Anne) FERGUSON, Arlene (John) HIGGINS, Joyce (Alan) BROOME, Mark FERGUSON, Dale (Jonathan) RUSSELL, Frank (Sharon) FERGUSON, Scott (Lia) FERGUSON, Jannine (Joe Bowen) FERGUSON, Shelley (Dave BELL) FERGUSON. She is loved by her sister Nancy ENRIGHT and brothers Terry and Kevin SMYTH. She is united with her sister Eileen CARNEGIE and brothers Frank and Stan SMYTH who predeceased her. Mom was blessed with her grandchildren Vince (Karin), Jill, Charlene, Nicole (Glenn), Patrick, Krista (Craig), Karl, Kyle, Bob (Tonia), Kevin (Lisa), Sarah, Kathleen, Joseph, Jonathan, Jason (Terrie), Becky, Kyle (Kendra), Lindsay, Derek, Craig, Mark, Julia, Casey, Allana, Danielle, Sophia, Bianca, David and great-grandchildren Abby, Brooklyn, Evan and Ky. She also leaves behind many sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law. Mom was born in England on August 5, 1927 and at the age of three moved to Canada with her family, where she later met her husband David. Raising fourteen children in tough times was a full time job, however, this exceptional mother always worked late at night at a "real" job for extra income to help support her family. Many will remember her little car up and down the concessions as a rural route mail lady. For many years Mom was a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion where she volunteered her time and efforts. Mom loved her bingo, her bowling and her golf. In retirement she enjoyed wintering in Panama City and Phoenix where she was a true sun worshipper. If wealth were measured by family and Friends, Mom had riches beyond compare. Our family would like to thank the staff, physicians and nurses at The Wynfield in Oshawa and Markham Stouffville Hospital for their wonderful care. Friends may call at Low and Low Funeral Home, Uxbridge for visitation on Thursday, November 17, 2005 from 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m., and Funeral Mass on Friday, November 18, 2005 at 11: 30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Uxbridge. Interment Uxbridge Cemetery. In Mom's memory, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion or the Canadian Cancer Society. "Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are Friends."

REID, Ewart Percival
After a brief illness, Ewart REID passed away at the General Hospital in Ottawa on June 15, 2005, at age 94. He is survived by his son Malcolm and wife Réjeanne CYR of Quebec City, and by his son Ian and partner Andrea MURPHY, who were with him at the end.
Ewart was the son of John Addison REID and Alma (CRISPIN) REID. Born in 1910 in Regina, he grew up in Toronto and Montreal. He received his B.A. and M.A. in economics from McGill, studying with Stephen Leacock. His master's studies took him to a Doukhobor community in western Canada, and he recounted their lifeways in his thesis.
His early career was with the Department of Agriculture in Ottawa. A second career took shape with the U.N.'s World Food Program, in Rome, New Delhi and Ankara.
Ewart had two granddaughters, Nadine SPIDLA of Vancouver, and Joëlle REID of Toronto. Doing field work in Peru, Joëlle said: "Ewart had a sense of adventure, so he understood mine."
Ewart was a lifelong socialist and supported the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation from its beginnings. He was also a sports enthusiast, with a longstanding commitment to the Habs and Expos.
During his studies at McGill in the 1930s, Ewart met and married Charlotte CLARE of St. Andrews, Manitoba. They were together for 25 years, and separated in 1960. Afterwards, Ewart married Dorothy MOXLEY of Ottawa, who went with him on postings in India and Turkey. She died in 1975. Ewart later married Seval UNAN of Ankara, Turkey, who survives him. Ewart was predeceased by siblings Howard REID of Montreal, Margaret TALBOT of Lachine, and Eleanor GIBBARD of Morgantown, West Virginia.
Friends and colleagues are invited to remember Ewart on what would have been his 95th birthday, on Wed., July 6, at 2 p.m. at a gathering at Beechwood Cemetery, Sir Sandford Fleming Room in Ottawa.

It is with great sadness that the family and Friends of Lily Curley McNEILL announce her death on July 2nd, 2005, three weeks shy of her 81st birthday. Lily was born July 26th, 1924 in Glasgow, Scotland, but moved with her parents, James and Jean McNEILL, to Barrhead as a young girl. She was predeceased by her parents, her sister Helen and her friend of more than 40 years, Dorothy BARRY, whom she missed dearly after Dorothy's death at this time last year. Lily came to Canada in her early thirties and worked for General Electric for many years until she retired early at 64 (a decision she never regretted!). She loved a good mystery, a good laugh, wee dogs, strong cups of tea, chocolate gingers, toasted cheese, mashed potatoes with gravy, red geraniums on the balcony in summer and, above all, the people in her life. Lily will be missed by all who knew and loved her especially her family: brothers James and Donald and his wife Christine, all of Scotland, niece Jacqueline of England, as well as by her many Friends here in Toronto particularly: Verna, Anita, Hazel, Evelyn, Sara, Pam and the staff of the Sterling Karamar building where she lived. Special thanks to Dr. CRISPINO, Dr. JENEY, the staff of St. Joseph's Palliative Care and Support Services, Dora, Richard and Carol-Ann of Pharma Plus as well as the personal support workers from Para Med who all cared for Lily so lovingly in her last weeks. Nothing is more precious than a true friend. (Anon) Lily was precious to us all.

AMATO DI CAMPOLEVRINI, Lanfranco (1922-2005)
Passed away peacefully, at his home in Toronto, on Monday, February 14, 2005, after a determined battle with cancer. Lanfranco is survived, and will forever be loved, by Liliana (CONTE,) his devoted wife of more than fifty years, his grieving son and daughter-in-law, Sergio and Lucy (Lake Forest, Illinois), his adoring grandchildren, Lilly, James and Finley, who missed Nonno's never-ending kisses and bear-hugs terribly, his sisters Laura and Maria Teresa and families and his brother-in-law Renato and sister-in-law Maria CRISTINA and families. He is pre-deceased by his brother, Salvatore.
Lanfranco was a generous, optimistic and gentle soul blessed with a wonderful sense of humour. He deeply loved his family, cherished his countless Friends and developed a respect for his adopted country, its citizens and way of life, which rivaled his feelings for his homeland. He taught his son all that is important in life and set for him an enduring example, which is proving impossible to follow. He did not know a stranger - he made Friends with everyone he met. He was an avid reader, a master of the crossword puzzle and an enthusiastic cheerleader at his grandchildren's varied athletic events. He leaves behind a chasm in our hearts.
Born in Rovereto, Italy on April 19, 1922, son of Giuseppe and Adile (VALDAGNI) AMATO, Lanfranco was educated in Milan. He served with honour and distinction during World War 2 with the Italian Army as Lieutenant of the 1st Regiment of Grenadiers and with the U.S. Army from September 1943; mentioned in dispatches by General Sir Harold Alexander. Lanfranco enjoyed a long and accomplished international business career, dominated by his experience with Olivetti (1950-1977). This included marketing, operations and senior management assignments in Europe, Asia, Africa and Canada, culminating in his appointment as President and G.M (1966) and Chairman of the Board (1973) of Olivetti Canada. After retiring from Olivetti, he joined Bregman and Hamann Architects as Director of New Business Development, then founded Riello Canada, Inc. and Riello Corp. of America, heading both as Chairman of the Board. Directorships included Four Seasons Hotels, Banca Commerciale Italiana of Canada, Gerling Insurance, Liquor Control Board of Ontario, Italian Chamber of Commerce (past President, 1963-1966), Canadian Opera Company, Toronto Symphony and Ontario Council for the Arts. Honours included Order of Canada, Knight of Obedience of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, Knight Commander of the Military Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, Knight of Corona d'Italia and Grand Officer of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Italy.
Visitation at 9: 30 a.m. and funeral service at 10:30 a.m. will be held at Holy Rosary Church, 354 St. Clair Avenue, Toronto, on Thursday, February 17th. Cremation. Private interment at Lake Forest Cemetery (Illinois). If desired, and with our gratitude, memorial donations may be made in lieu of flowers to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, 600 University Avenue, Toronto M5G 1X5.
