COSTELLO, Dennis Brian Francis III (June 3, 1952-July 23, 2005)
Beloved son of Raymond and Ramona, Dear stepson of Nelson DAVIE, passed away as the sky was brimming with diamonds. Irreplaceable brother to Barbara, Brenda, Carol, Tom, Sharon, Sheila, Elizabeth, Teresa, Larry, Vincent, Gregory and Angela. Dennis left this world surrounded by his family, with music in the air and with spiritual comfort given by Father Dan. Sisters and Brothers-in-law, Nieces and Nephews were present to give unconditional love and support to Uncle Dennis. Dennis was, himself, a dear nephew of many loving aunts and uncles from London, Brantford, Ingersoll, and Toronto.
With heartfelt thanks to the kind Doctors and Nurses at University Hospital in London- And to Dennis' treasured Friends, Neisha, Anne, Mandy, Ryan, Peter, Shannon, Rick, Sam, June, and Barry. All of those who bestowed kindness upon Dennis over these years are truly blessed. Also, to Mary Shipp and "A and P Dave", both of whom are the essence of compassion in human nature.
For those who never found it within their hearts to reconcile with a "one of a kind" person like Dennis, please listen to the words of an artist with whom Dennis found a certain affinity throughout his life here on earth:
Imagine all the people living life in peace,
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one,
I hope someday you will join us, and the world will live as one.
John Lennon
Dennis, we love you and will miss your greeting cards, not to mention your phone messages, urging us to "call the magic number that says it all."
We realize that your path in life was not always paved in gold. You faced each challenge with an amazing sense of humour and intelligence. And we pray that our Dad and our sister, Sheila, are now embracing you "somewhere over the rainbow."
All you need is Love, Love, Love…,
Sharon, along with the COSTELLO Family

BUDDUG JOHN, Betty (née DAVIES)
Died peacefully in her ninetieth year on Friday, January 21, 2005, at her residence in the Seven Oaks Home for the Aged. Not sadness, but joy in an extraordinarily full, rich and generous life filled the hearts of all who knew her. Welsh to the end, but a grateful Canadian for fifty years, her voice and piano still ring in the hearts of us all. A professional nurse and midwife who delivered many a child in the bombing of London, she later cared for and brightened the lives of 'old people', a group to which she never belonged. In her life she was also an athlete, an artist, a mother, a homemaker and a wonderful partner to her late husband Reverend W.H. JOHN in his lifelong ministry. She is survived by daughter Beth E. LETTNER (spouse of the late George LETTNER,) son David G. JOHN (Kathryn,) grandchildren Susan (Michael McKAY,) Michelle (Craig CYR,) William, Gregory and Leslie, and her great-grandchildren Miss Isabelle and Mr. William. We shall dearly miss her among us. A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at Washington United Church, 3739 Kingston Road, Scarborough, Ontario, M1J 3H4, Tel. 416 267 8265 on Friday, February 18 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a favourite charity in her memory.

Friends and family have witnessed with sadness more than a decade of dramatically declining health. Her daughters are very grateful to caregivers Francine BARIT and more recently Brenda SYLVESTER together with the dedicated staff of the 6th floor at Leisureworld Scarboro.
Predeceased in 2002 by her husband of 63 years, Jaro, she is remembered with love by her daughters Olga KORPER (Leo MEYER,) Sylvia BUCEK, Trude MEYER (Wolfgang), Mimi MARROCCO (Frank), and Hélène BUCEK- MacKEY (Ernie).

DELCOL, Maria (formerly MASCHERIN)
It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Maria DELCOL, beloved wife of the late Vittorio who predeceased her in 1972. Although proud of the heritage of the Friuli culture from Northern Italy that she shared with her husband and left behind in 1934, she loved Canada and the life it gave her in Timmins even more. In this town founded after a gold rush not even twenty years before Vittorio arrived in 1930, together they successfully built full new lives. In these they were loved, respected, active and were founding members of the new Italian Sacred Heart Church, where their infant daughter was the first recipient of the sacrament of baptism ministered by Father Fontana, and later in the Dante Club, both of which played significant roles in their daughter's wedding twenty-four years later. Because of this broad and committed support group of family and Friends, Maria was able to maintain her independence and live alone in her beloved Timmins for 32 years, waiting to be reunited with the man she fell in love with as a thirteen year old. At the age of 90, after a long life that saw much development and change, she developed heart and breathing problems and was no longer able maintain her independence; she was welcomed into her daughter's home in Willowdale, Toronto. She finally was granted her wish to be once again with her beloved Vittorio when, after a two year battle, her tired heart stopped at 12: 15 a.m. on the 16th of February, 2005, age 91. As the treasured Mama, Nonna, and Nonna Bisa she was loved and will be sadly missed by her daughter Neli DAVIES and son-in-law Donald, her granddaughters Melanie MICHAEL and husband André of London, Cassandra Davies INGRAM and husband Robert (Rob) of Barrie, and Vanessa DAVIES of Toronto and companion Corey, and great-granddaughters Melinda, and Aleisha MICHAEL and Quinn INGRAM, and great-grand_son Owen INGRAM. She and her family cherish and are so grateful to the family members and Friends in Timmins who enabled this loving, feisty, strong willed, independent lady to retain her dignity and sense of self for so long in her own home with its joyous memories. In compliance with her wishes, she is resting at Miron Wilson Funeral Home, Timmins. Viewing will be on Monday, February 21st from 2: 00 to 4:00 p.m. and again from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be at Sacred Heart Church, Tuesday, February 22nd at 11: 00 a.m. An announcement of a Memorial Service to be held in Toronto will be made at a later date. A Mass or donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation will be gratefully accepted.

Of Orillia, died in Tucson, Arizona from complications of living life to the fullest. Bob is survived by his wife Enid of 62 years five daughters: Emme (Gord) BURNETT of Port Perry, Adrienne (Bob) DAVIES and Pixie (Darin) BURNS of Orillia, Merry O'NEILL of Burlington and Louise HAYES (Pete MEDIG) of Jasper, Alberta; two sons: Charlie (Margaret) HAYES of St. Catharines and John (Leslie) HAYES of Toronto and son-in-law Bill HEWITT of Toronto. Bob was predeceased by his daughter Diane HEWITT of Toronto. Bob is also survived by 18 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. Bob will be remembered by the education community in St. Catharines and the province of Ontario as a tremendous innovator, an educational entrepreneur. There are two major innovations that have had a great effect on Ontario high school programs since 1970. First and foremost, when he was Principal, Merritton High School was one of two schools in Ontario to pilot the current credit system. Secondly, as the founding Principal of Governor Simcoe Secondary School, Bob pioneered the semester system as one of two Ontario schools to pilot the program. Bob also felt that students would learn better in unphased or open courses. He was a strong advocate for special needs students, gifted education and the French immersion program. When he retired in 1978, Bob moved to Orillia where he enjoyed gardening at his home, golfing with his Friends at Couchiching, playing cards and pool at the Legion and all the social stuff at the Golden K where he is a past president and regional governor. Bob and Enid loved to travel and have enjoyed winter golf in Tucson for the past 12 years. Bob HAYES was a well respected and beloved member of the community. He lived life right to the end. He was coherent and intelligent with visitors in his home up to an hour before he died. There will be a memorial service in Orillia later on in April. We shall miss you Dad.

He helped bring CanLit to the world
Gordon ROPER sneaked books on to curriculum
Group of Friends read to professor who went blind
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Gathered around Mollie CARTMELL's kitchen table in Peterborough are the chair, associate chair and past chair of Trent University's department of English, talking about the man who has meant the world to them and who helped bring the world the study and appreciation of Canadian literature.
Prof. Gordon ROPER had been teaching at the University of Toronto's Trinity College some 45 years ago when he found a circuitous if not somewhat duplicitous way to slip the study of home-grown Canadian novels into Trinity's previously wholly Anglophile curriculum.
These three -- and many, many others in academia -- are the products of that subterfuge, a generation of scholars and former students who proudly and wryly describe themselves as "Roperized."
They were also the core of a group called Roper's Readers, eight people who read to the 93-year-old at a set time each week, because ROPER had become blind about 25 years ago and because, they all said, ROPER was simply wonderful company.
"He made it always a pleasure, an unalloyed pleasure," said James NEUFELD, chair of Trent's department of English literature. "You'd knock at the door of Applewood (the retirement home where ROPER lived until he died in his sleep on February 20) and he would leap up, stride to the door, thrust his hand out. 'James, so good to see you.' Why wouldn't you go?"
"When he talked to you, he wasn't a blind old man," said CARTMELL, a retired high school teacher who met ROPER 15 years ago while writing a history of the local Young Men's Christian Association. She read him newsmagazines and papers Friday evenings, and treasured his conversation and commentary. "He turned me on to The New Yorker magazine, for which I will be eternally grateful."
The group started in earnest and on a schedule in 1997, after the death of ROPER's beloved wife, Helen. ROPER fell into a deep despair, a shocking revelation for NEUFELD, who had idolized ROPER since he took an English course from him his first year at Trinity College. It was NEUFELD who called Gordon JOHNSTON, associate chair of the English literature department and also a former Trinity student of ROPER's, as well as Mike PETERMAN, past department chair and currently a visiting scholar at Princeton in Canadian studies, and suggested they set up a regular timetable for visiting and reading. Others soon joined, including Peterborough Mayor Sylvia SUTHERLAND.
Tuesdays were NEUFELD's time; Mondays, JOHNSTON read poetry with him; Thursdays, PETERMAN and ROPER often read and discussed PETERMAN's current writing: "It was a special bond and terrific for me. I could hear myself making headway or getting caught. He would make suggestions; he was my best reader."
The last time they were together PETERMAN read from Leaven of Malice, a book by Robertson DAVIES that he's been teaching in his Princeton course on Canadian literature. DAVIES was one of ROPER's oldest and fastest Friends. "I said to him that I thought the novel held up well -- that it was bracing and funny -- and he was thrilled."
And that was ROPER's secret. He was the gentlest of critics he valued literature, studying it with a rigorous intellect but also with a genuine and generous affection. He made neither waves nor academic headlines; his scholarly output was small by some standards, but careful and precise, and always illuminating. Gabrielle Roy said his introduction to her classic novel Where Nests the Water Hen was the best critical piece on her work she'd ever read. Initially a student of American literature who was fascinated by Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Samuel Clemens, ROPER wrote an introduction to Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter because when he began teaching in 1948 there was no text available of this work for university study.
He was chair of English at Trinity College, a member of the graduate faculty at the university, a senior founder of Massey College and responsible as Senior Fellow Emeritus for developing the Massey College library, later renamed the Robertson Davies library. Northrop Frye and E.J. Pratt were his Friends. Governor General Adrienne CLARKSON was a student who phoned his nursing home last year when Peterborough was flooded to make sure ROPER was all right.
"Our class was small -- about 10 of us -- clustered around a table beneath the mullioned windows under the eaves. But as a result, years later, I never hear the word 'ambergris' (a waxy substance secreted by sperm Wales that's added to perfume) without thinking about Dr. ROPER explaining the elaborate metaphor of Ishmael's world," she wrote from Rideau Hall when she learned of ROPER's death. "He taught me not only literature, but also the meaning of caring about literature."
ROPER's greatness was displayed in the classroom. "He could give a whole lecture on the words 'Call me Ishmael,' said JOHNSTON. ROPER was a high-school dropout; he often joked it was the basis of his Friendship with Robertson DAVIES, also a doctor of letters without a high-school diploma. They met at a meeting at Peterborough's Y, when ROPER, from the back of the room, tossed off one of his trademark puns. ROPER took out his first library book when he was eight. When he was in Grade 10, the head librarian at Peterborough's library gave him the keys to the basement stacks because he was spending so much time there instead of across the street at Peterborough Collegiate Institute.
Nevertheless, ROPER attained his PhD in American literature in 1944 from the University of Chicago and was teaching there when he received the offer from Trinity College. At the time, ROPER had to work hard to obtain permission to teach a course on American literature, but by the early 1960s he'd manage to slip in two Canadian volumes at the end of that course. "It was a toehold," said NEUFELD, but not enough for ROPER, who hatched a plot with a colleague in the divinity school to devise a course of Canadian content he called "Spiritual Issues in Literature."
"That's how he got Canadian literature on to the syllabus," said NEUFELD. "It was one of the best courses I ever took. I taught CanLit at Trent on the basis of that course."
JOHNSTON remembered how ROPER smuggled Margaret Laurence -- another friend -- on to campus to address a class just after she had written The Stone Angel, one of a generation of Canadian books that jump-started the entire CanLit industry. In 1969, ROPER returned to Peterborough to teach at the fledgling Trent University. He was back in the classroom, where he was happiest, and he was closer to the family cottage on Roper Island on Stoney Lake where he and Helen spent summers with their children, Mark and Susan.
Later he suffered a colostomy, angina and blindness, but he remained upbeat and busy. When Roper's Readers decided to honour their friend last fall at the annual Rooke Reading Series by inviting the public to hear them read to him -- "and get a taste of our pleasure in doing it," as CARTMELL put it -- ROPER started making a suggestion, here, then there.
"He started to choreograph it," said JOHNSTON, with a laugh. One of his suggestions was that they read from the works of a local nature writer. It was a good one, they all agreed. "He always had in mind what he thought would be good for the community to hear."
