In loving memory of Donna Louise, our dear mother, nan and great nana who passed away September 18, 2004 What we would give to hug you once more, To hear your laughter and see your smile, We're assured of your love, Even though we're apart, As so much we've shared, Is written on our hearts. May the winds of love blow softly, And whisper so that you can hear, We'll always love and miss you, And wish that you were here. Always in our thoughts, Deeply missed and loved by Glen, John, Sandra, Jim, Gayle and families In memory of our Nan Our hearts are full of memories, We treasure them with care. That you had to leave us, Will always seem unfair. Sad are the hearts that Love You, Silent tears that still fall. Living our lives without you, Is the hardest part of all. In all that life has given us, And all that's left to do. We will never have a greater gift, To have had a Nan like you. Love forever, Lisa and Haylee

Service for Ian LANG on Saturday
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Page
A man who dedicated his life to teaching, public service and the environment has died.
Clearview Township Ward 3 councillor Ian LANG, 62, died Monday afternoon at his home near Dunedin.
"It's very shocking," Clearview Township Mayor Fran SAINSBURY said during an interview at the municipal office in Stayner. "We are all extremely sad for Marjorie and the family."
The mayor said council and municipal staff will do whatever possible to support LANG's family.
A sign of compassion was already evident at the township office Tuesday -- flags were lowered to half~staff
LANG, a seven-year member of council, was remembered fondly by colleagues and staff.
Chief administrative officer Sue McKENZIE, who regularly rode with LANG to and from council meetings, was near tears as she spoke.
"He wasn't just a councillor -- he was a friend. He was an amazing person, very devoted to the job."
Deputy-Mayor Ken FERGUSON said he's lost a "friend and good colleague who's input will he missed."
FERGUSON, who last spoke with LANG over the phone for about 30 minutes on Friday, said: "while we didn't always agree we respected each other and that allowed for a good relationship."
Ward 7 councillor Shawn DAVIDSON called LANG's death "tragic."
"He was very dedicated, one of our hardest working council members," DAVIDSON said.
Former mayor Bob McKEE, who now lives in Collingwood, said he was saddened to learn of LANG's death.
"Of my council Ian was among the top three people we had," said McKEE.
"He was a real asset to us, giving a lot of his time."
During the last term of council, LANG oversaw the launch of a municipal newsletter in order to maintain better communication with residents.
LANG's passion was the environment, something evident from the committees and boards he served.
The retired science teacher, who taught for 29 years at North Collegiate in Barrie, served on the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority, the Niagara Escarpment Commission, the Clearview Tree Committee, the Lake Simcoe Nottawasaga River Watersheds Assimilative Capacity Study and the Blue Mountain Watershed Trust Foundation.
Outside of the environment realm, LANG was on the. Creemore Medical Centre Services Board and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity.
As a councillor he successfully advocated that Clearview spend almost $300,000 on provincially mandated water system upgrades at aging community halls, saying the facilities were the heart and soul of rural life and must be kept open.
LANG is originally from Scotland. He came to Canada about 30 years ago.
He and his wife, Marjorie, have two grown daughters.
Earlier this year LANG returned to Scotland, where his mother still lives, taking a grandchild along for the trip. At the time, LANG remarked while it was nice to visit he'd long since considered Canada his home.
A memorial service for LANG will be held at Creemore's Station on the Green, 10 Caroline Street, at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
McKENZIE said the family is still waiting for autopsy results to determine the cause of death.
For more information, call Fawcett Funeral Home in Creemore at 466-2108.

Stan SEYDEGART, Company Manager and Royal Air Force Flier: 1914-2004
Polish refugee escaped German invaders and made his way to Canada to join the air force. Captured after his bomber was shot down, he later escaped. After the war, he managed companies that helped build the Trans-Canada Highway
By Andrew DAVIDSON, Monday, February 21, 2005 - Page S6
Toronto -- Stanislaw SEYDEGART had the good fortune and sense to know when to escape a country, an airplane and even a prisoner-of-war camp.
Brought up in Warsaw, he was raised by loving parents and two older brothers, Marek and Bolek. At 13 -- thanks to his exam results and considerable efforts by his father, Anatole -- he began studies at an elite school in Warsaw usually reserved for the children of civil servants, officers in the military, and members of the ruling Polish Socialist Party that had taken power in a 1926 coup led by Jozef Pilsudski.
He graduated from the University of Warsaw in 1935, the same year his mother died. "For the first time, at the age of 20, I became aware of the finality of death," he wrote in Freedom on the Run, a self-published memoir made up of a series of short stories he completed last year.
As the era of radio dawned in Europe, his family had been among the first in Poland to tune in to events from afar. His father had been the 28th person in Poland to get a licence for a radio receiver, so when Polish president Ignacy Moscicki announced that the German army had crossed the border, Stan SEYDEGART heeded the warning. With German motorized columns heading for Warsaw, he begged his father and two brothers to leave, but they refused. Alone, he escaped to Lithuania. His father and his two brothers would be killed in the war, along with most of his extended family. In Lithuania, he made money by taking passport photographs with a borrowed camera and then travelled across the breadth of the Soviet Union, drinking champagne with fellow Poles on the Trans-Siberian Railway, all the way to Vladivostok on the Pacific. With a false visa and a $20 American bill hidden in his left shoe, he sailed to Japan and then on to Canada in late 1941.
In Canada, he joined a unit of the Polish forces in Windsor, Ontario, recruiting Polish Americans into the Canadian army. In 1943, while at a Toronto hospital visiting a friend with whom he had escaped Poland, he met Janka STYKOLT, another Polish refugee. By all accounts, it was love at first sight. The war, however, had first call and he soon found himself on his way to Britain to join the Polish arm of the Royal Air Force. During a stop in Montreal, he gave most of his Canadian money to a florist with instructions to send Ms. STYKOLT red roses every Saturday until the funds ran out.
After training, Mr. SEYDEGART was assigned as a navigator to Lancaster bomber "U-Uncle" in the 300th Bomber Squadron, the first squadron made up of Polish airmen. On U-Uncle's 29th mission one less than the 30 required for a six-month furlough -- the plane was attacked and burst into flames over Germany. Only a few of the crew managed to bail out. Mr. SEYDEGART landed in a tree, barefoot (rapid changes of air pressures had removed his boots and socks) and in the dark. Luckily, he found his pilot, who gave him a pair of wool socks that would save his life.
Suffering from severe frostbite, Mr. SEYDEGART was later captured and taken to a makeshift hospital, where a German officer ordered his feet to be cut off. He was saved by a fellow prisoner, a Serbian doctor who had studied medicine in Poland and who refused to perform the amputation. The Serbian nursed his wounds until the blisters healed and his fever subsided. Once Mr. SEYDEGART was healthy, he was taken to a PoW camp near the Polish border.
In early 1945, the Germans decided to move the camp population away from advancing Allied forces and marched all the prisoners to another camp in Musseburg. On the way, Mr. SEYDEGART and an American major slipped off the path and hid behind a tree until the column of prisoners had passed. They ran for 19 days and, at one point, were sheltered by local villagers. One night, the pair stopped at a beer parlour only to be confronted by a group of thirsty SS officers.
"Shoot them if they try to escape," one of the officers told a guard and left them in a wooden shack. Undeterred, the two men overpowered the guard and fled. Exhausted and fearing reprisal, they found their way to the Musseburg camp. All things considered, they decided it offered the best hiding place, and thus they became the only escape team of the war known to break into a PoW camp. Their luck held and, within days, the camp was liberated by American forces. At war's end, he received the Royal Air Force Distinguished Flying Cross and the Polish Cross of Valour.
After the war, Mr. SEYDEGART followed his heart and married Janka STYKOLT. In 1946, they settled in Toronto, where he soon became an avid hockey fan and, for 50 years, bought season tickets to attend Toronto Maple Leafs games. Of all the jobs he held, his favourite was to manage companies that built bridges, dams and docks along the length of the Trans-Canada Highway.
In 1988, at 73, he retired to co-found the Ulyssean Society, a Toronto group that promotes education and creativity among older adults. On the side, he wrote a column for the society's newsletter in which he commented on domestic and international politics. During summers, he was an enthusiastic sailor.
In 1999, the University of Toronto's faculty of social work established the Stanislaw Seydegart scholarship in gerontology and aging to promote lifelong learning.
Stanislaw SEYDEGART was born in Warsaw on December 21, 1914. He died in Toronto on November 4, 2004, after suffering a heart attack. He was 89. He is survived by his wife Janka and by daughters Kasia and Magda and by five grandchildren.

WALLNER, Joseph Peter " Joe"
Died peacefully, on March 2, 2005 at Wellington House Nursing Home in Prescott, Ontario, after several years of declining health, in his 88th year. Born April 11, 1917 in Hanover, Ontario, and a long-time resident of Ancaster and Burlington, Joe was known throughout his life as a fine gentleman who championed through his actions his belief in God, family, his country and the credit union movement. Active in credit unions from an early age, Joe joined the staff of CUNA Mutual in 1951 and travelled extensively in Canada, the U.S. and abroad to support the growth and development of credit unions, and insurance services for credit unions. In 1954-1955 he was president of CUNA (Hamilton) Credit Union. He established many lasting Friendships through his business travels, retiring as Senior Vice President, Corporate Relations, for CUMIS in 1982. He also was active in the Burlington Chamber of Commerce, serving as its president in 1976. In World War 2, Joe served first in the Merchant Marine and then more than three years in Ferry Command, delivering planes and equipment across the Atlantic. His patriotism was still evident years later when he organized a door-to-door campaign in Burlington to encourage families to proudly fly their country's flag on Canada Day. Dozens of families took part, including virtually everyone on Joe's street. Joe was a founding member of two Catholic parishes and was a founding director of St. Louis Parish Credit Union, which became Waterloo Regional Credit Union and where he retained membership for more than 50 years. He was a member of Saint John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Burlington for 37 years. The family express their deepest appreciation to Father John APPELMAN and the Pastoral Care Group at Saint Mark's Parish, Prescott, who supported Joe's faith in many kind ways in recent years. Joe's other great faith was in medical practitioners, from whom he received stellar care, particularly in his declining years. The family would especially like to thank the caring and compassionate staff at Wellington House, where he spent his last four years, as well as Dr. Maung Tun ZAW of Burlington and Dr. Gun BHATT of Prescott. Joe was the dear father of John WALLNER (Sheila) of Gatineau, Quebec, and Eloise COLEMAN (Tom) of Toronto and Brockville. He was predeceased by two loving wives: Audrey Mary BENINGER, (1981,) and Margaret WHITELEY, (1992.) He is survived by his sister Salome (Mrs. Dan DACEY) of Thunder Bay, and brother George WALLNER (Phyllis) of Guelph, and was predeceased by three siblings; Sister Mary SALOME, S.S.N.D.; Gertrude (Mrs. James DAVIDSON) of Kenora; and Flight-Sergeant John WALLNER of Hanover, who was shot down in action August 18, 1943, 15 months after serving as Joe and Audrey's best man. He was 23. Loving sisters and brothers-in-law include Rosemary TRAPLIN (Jack) of Kitchener, Elaine COUCH (Hank) of Calgary, Doris (Mrs. Tom) BENINGER of Orleans, Loretto (Mrs. Gerald) BENINGER of Belleville, Monique (Mrs. Len) BENINGER of Sorel, Quebec, Helen YEO (Kenneth) of St. Catharines, Irmgard (Mrs. Ralph) ROEDIGER of Hamilton and, deceased, Marguerite (Mrs. Lawrence) COLIGAN of Morrisburg, and Bernice MURPHY of Toronto. Joe was also very close to dozens of nieces and nephews. Visitation at the Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street (one block north of City Hall), Burlington (905-632-3333) Friday March 4th from 3 to 5, and 7 to 9 p.m. with Vigil Prayers at 8: 30 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial at Saint John's Church, Burlington (Brant Street at Blairholm) on Saturday, March 5, 2005 at 10: 00 a.m. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

DAVIDSON, Mary Janet (ARMSTRONG)
Mary Janet ARMSTRONG was born November 23, 1911 on a farm on Kennedy Road, near Unionville, Ontario. She died on March 16, 2005 at Memorial Hospital in Mission, British Columbia. She was the daughter of the late Leslie ARMSTRONG and Charlotte LENNOX dear sister of Margaret PRITCHARD and the late Robert ARMSTRONG beloved wife of the late Bruce DAVIDSON; loving mother of Jean and her husband, Allen AICKEN; a much-loved 'Auntie Mary' to a host of nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by many Friends and relatives of all ages. She was a mentor, church and charity volunteer, and quiet benefactor of good causes in her local community and abroad.
The deaths of her parents at a young age gave her a sensitivity to vulnerable children. Teaching at Birch Cliff Heights and Frankland Schools, she nurtured and nourished many struggling pupils in depression-era and wartime Toronto. Marriage brought a return to farm life, on the Davidson homestead in Agincourt then on the farm in Stouffville. She was active in the Presbyterian Churches in Agincourt and Stouffville, in Women's Institute, in 4-H, and many other causes.
After never living further than 15 miles from her birthplace, she undertook the big adventure, at age 92, of moving to Maple Ridge, British Columbia to live with Jean and Allen. She embraced this courageously, and enjoyed looking at the mountains, the Fraser River, the farm animals in the fields, and the cat on the porch.
Her final illness came suddenly and her departure from this world was gentle.
A memorial service was held on Wednesday, March 30, 2005 at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Whonnock, British Columbia, the Rev David Findley- Price officiating.
Private interment at Knox Cemetery, Agincourt, the Reverend Kathryn STRACHAN officiating.
A memorial service will be held at Unionville Presbyterian Church, 600 Village Parkway, Unionville, on Saturday, April 30, 2005 at 1: 30 p.m., the Reverend Gordon TIMBERS officiating. The family will receive Friends from 12 noon at the church.
No flowers please; memorial donations may be made to Presbyterian World Service and Development, 50 Wynford Dr., Toronto, Ontario M3C 1J7.

ERRETT, Ron (March 14, 1922-November 24, 2005)
'When war was declared I went to the Naval recruitment officer in Stanley Park to sign up and he asked if I ever had my tonsils out. When informed I hadn't, he told me I couldn't join the Navy.' Next stop was St. Paul's Emergency. Scraping every penny from his bank account, Ron handed over his last $75.00 and had his tonsils removed... then back to the recruiter...then off to the parade square to march and heal for a week. From those early wartime days as an Ordinary Seaman, soon scrambling to lash down 45-pound depth charges in 60 foot seas, Ron earned his way to a North Atlantic Commission and by war's end was commanding a vessel off B.C.'s west coast. Ronald ERRETT always managed to squeeze 26 hours out of every day, more than 35 days from a month, and seemed to cram about 13 months into nearly every one of his 83 years. Most of his meals finished with, 'That was the best one I ever had in my life!' Be it a peanut butter sandwich, a plate of hamburger helper or just mac and cheese... every bite was the best yet! No such thing as a bad Scotch, and all wines were award-winners! Ron was always first off the mark... and first in the pool! His gravelly voiced, 'You can do it!!!' was followed by at least three exclamation marks as Ron was the ultimate motivator when times got tough, business got slow, or when things mysteriously went sideways... yet nary a complaint was ever heard when faced with his own private challenges. So that was Ronald Barrie ERRETT, the giver. Syl's always romantic, darling husband, who lit the candles and passed on little gifts all leading to that special occasion. The total, into-it dad; the grandpa and greatgrandpa extraordinaire; the seaman, the skipper, the new Cub Master mere minutes after meeting the Pack. The Mason, the founding President of British Columbia Kiwanis; the just-back-from-the-war 23-yr. old Director of one our earliest Credit Unions... the roommate that never left a ring around the tub, a kindly, boldly-bursting-with-energy-and-superlatives kind-of-man who could mend most anything with a couple of coathangers and duct tape... and who readily lent his broad-shoulders for any just cause. Surrounded by family at the Pallative Care Unit of V.G.H.'s Jim Pattison Pavillion, Ron just closed his tired but happy eyes and quietly succumbed to the leukaemia that played havoc with papa's 'round the park bicycling jaunts. Ironically, many of Ron's best years in sales and management right across Canada were very much part of The Jim Pattison Group's sign divisions, so a few things kind of came together like they were meant to. Today, wife Sylvia, son Mark and wife Claudia, daughters Lee with husband Victor and Wendi with partner Michael, mother of Mark, Lee and Wendy, Marguerite DAVIDSON, stepdaughter Brandee, grandchildren, Amy, Lena and Katie, Christie with husband Doug, Randall and Shawna, Adam and Cole, great grandchildren Kiley and Mathew, more Friends, more co-workers, more comrades than could ever possibly join him on the aft deck of his ship, all sorely mourn their loss, but surely will be brought to smiles then laughter by the wonderful times and storied memories he delivered in his indefatigable Ron ERRETT way. A private, 8-Bells Burial At Sea will take place in early December with his family planning a celebration of his most wonderful life early in the new year.

DAVIDSON, Mary Janet (née ARMSTRONG)
Was born November 23, 1911 on a farm on Kennedy Road, near Unionville, Ontario. She died on March 16, 2005 at Memorial Hospital in Mission, British Columbia. She was the daughter of the late Leslie ARMSTRONG and Charlotte LENNOX; dear sister of Margaret PRITCHARD and the late Robert ARMSTRONG; beloved wife of the late Bruce DAVIDSON loving mother of Jean and her husband Allen AICKEN; a much-loved 'Auntie Mary' to a host of nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by many Friends and relatives of all ages. She was a mentor, church and charity volunteer, and quiet benefactor of good causes in her local community and abroad. The deaths of her parents at a young age gave her a sensitivity to vulnerable children. Teaching at Birch Cliff Heights and Frankland Schools, she nurtured and nourished many struggling pupils in depression-era and wartime Toronto. Marriage brought a return to farm life, on the Davidson homestead in Agincourt, then on the farm in Stouffville. She was active in the Presbyterian Churches in Agincourt and Stouffvllle, in Women's Institute, in 4-H, and many other causes. After never living further than 15 miles from her birthplace, she undertook the big adventure, at age 92, of moving to Maple Ridge, British Columbia to live with Jean and Allen. She embraced this courageously, and enjoyed looking at the mountains, the Fraser River, the farm animals in the fields, and the cat on the porch. Her final illness came suddenly and her departure from this world was gentle. A memorial service was held on Wednesday, March 30, 2005 at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Whonnock, British Columbia, the Reverend David Findley-Price officiating. Private interment at Knox Cemetery, Agincourt. the Reverend Kathryn STRACHAN officiating. A memorial service will be held at Unionville Presbyterian Church, 600 Village Parkway, Unionville, on Saturday, April 30, 2005 at 1: 30 p.m., the Reverend Gordon TIMBERS officiating. The family will receive Friends from 12 noon at the church. No flowers please memorial donations may be made to Presbyterian World Service and Development, 50 Wynford Dr., Toronto, Ontario M3C 1J7.
