DESANTIS, Gloria Ann (née SWARTMAN) (1936-2005)
At the age of 69 years, Gloria joined her mother Margaret, father Eldon, and brother Gary into Glory on Saturday, October 22, 2005 at the Sarcee Hospice in Calgary, Alberta. Born on March 7, 1936, Gloria grew up on Bleeker Street in Toronto with her brothers Norm, Ron and Gary. This home was full of a whole lot of fun and love. The Swartman residence was the place to be for the kids in the neighbourhood, always enough room for one more at dinner. As Gloria grew into a stunning young lady, she began an exciting social life; she loved to dance, sing, and enjoy the resort life at the lakes in Northern Ontario. During Gloria's travels in the fifties she had many adventures, created lifelong memories and met a group of Friends that would remain throughout her life. Gloria worked as a Receptionist for much of her life, but for quite a few years worked in Classified Sales for the Mirror (Scarborough) with a group of amazing women. Gloria moved to Calgary in 1993. She continued her passion for the outdoors frequently hiking and camping in the mountains. She began a new career with ING Insurance and retired in 2001. Gloria is survived by her son Carl; his wife Beverley; and their daughters, Brittany, and Maddison. Her youngest son Larry lives in Sunderland, Ontario with Kim and their sons, Kyle, Tyler, and Adam. Gloria will also be missed by her extended family, Wendy Ayres, Morgan, and Wade. Gloria's family gave her the most pleasure; to watch them succeed, excel and enjoy life gave her the greatest joy. Gloria was a pillar for her family; providing them with unconditional love, pride and support. When her grandchildren competed in any event, Gloria always attended and was their "Number One Fan." Gloria will be laid to rest with her mother and brother in a private ceremony at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto, on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 at 1: 00 p.m. If Friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, or to the Salvation Army.

To check the skies, the greens in your blood.

Reminding us of all that lies in our grasp,

I Remember -- Peter JENNINGS
By Peter DESBARATS, Saturday, August 13, 2005, Page S11
Most of the public recollections of Peter JENNINGS have cited his generosity, particularly when it came to other journalists. I experienced an outstanding example of this.
It was near the end of the 1980s. I had been the journalism dean at the University of Western Ontario since 1981. A large part of this job, and similar positions in academia, was raising money. Someone came up with a brilliant idea -- we would gather together a dozen of the top Canadian journalists from home and abroad for a public celebration of their talent. It would be truly a "Gathering of the Giants."
From the outset it was evident that we would need the support of the "giant of giants," Peter JENNINGS. Clearly, he had achieved that status among Canadian journalists working in Canada, in the United States and elsewhere. He was in a class by himself.
So I flew to New York to have lunch with him. This had been surprisingly easy to arrange, despite the fact that our paths had not previously crossed. There is a camaraderie among journalists that I had experienced on assignment in many countries and Peter was a prime example of this.
We enjoyed an unpretentious lunch in the ABC network's cafeteria and chatted about mutual Friends before I made my pitch. After a minimum of discussion he agreed to be one of our giants. The rest soon followed: the two other Peters, MANSBRIDGE and GZOWSKI the two Barbaras, FRUM and AMIEL; Morley Safer from 60 Minutes, Lloyd ROBERSTON of CTV, Allan FOTHERINGHAM, Sydney Gruson of The New York Times, Jeffrey SIMPSON of The Globe and Mail, Henry CHAMP of CTV, Robert McNeil of PBS and Richard GWYN of the Toronto Star, for a total of 13.
Months later, after a tremendous amount of work by my committee in Toronto, we were approaching the big night at Toronto's Metro Convention Centre. There had been a few minor bumps along the way, but Peter JENNINGS was still on board. By this time I had learned to appreciate how unusual this was.
Peter gave me to understand that ABC wasn't particularly keen on anything that highlighted his Canadian background and citizenship. I also got the impression that his prominent role in this fundraiser was unusual and probably would not have been undertaken for a journalism school in the United States.
In the final weeks I began to worry about some major news event conflicting with our gathering and taking Peter to some far-flung but newsworthy corner of the world. He couldn't guarantee that this wouldn't happen but simply repeated that he would make every effort to attend.
My nightmare came true when the destruction of the Berlin Wall in November, 1989, unleashed a whole series of European events. I can't remember exactly which one conflicted with our gathering, only that it was significant enough to make me almost abandon hope. But Peter arrived on schedule in a private plane from New York, stopping for our event in Toronto before flying immediately that night to some European capital or other.
I watched him on the screen the following night in amazement, not so much for his profound professionalism but for his amazing Friendship and generosity.
But there's more. After our Oscar-type celebration of the 13 giants on the convention centre's main stage -- complete with video highlights of their careers and mini-interviews by 13 awestruck journalism students -- and after a lavish buffet supper ("food from the news capitals of the world"), the entertainment consisted of a mock newscast anchored by Peter JENNINGS, Lloyd ROBERTSON and Peter MANSBRIDGE. The rest of the 13 were in a nearby studio supposedly reporting from Washington, London, Moscow and other impressive datelines.
Peter gave my script for this tomfoolery his full attention, reading it carefully beforehand, underlining certain parts and rehearsing under his breath. The other two anchors quickly rose to the challenge, providing our audience with a hilarious display of competitive news delivery as they worked shamelessly to milk laughs from their appreciative audience.
The only restriction placed by Peter on this unique performance was that no one in the control room would make an unauthorized pirate tape of it. And as far as I know, no one did, because I'm sure it would have turned up by now.
We raised about $80,000 for the journalism school that night and I always felt that I had never thanked him properly. So thanks, Peter. You stood for everything that was thoughtful, professional and generous about journalism at its best.
Peter DESBARATS, a former Global television anchor, was dean of the graduate journalism program at the University of Western Ontario from 1981 to 1996.

Although it doesn't seem like long,
It's been a year since you've been gone.
My memories are vivid like it happened
Yesterday, And even though I want them to, they will never go away.
For every day is a reminder of how you
Touched my heart,
And the hardest thing I've had to do
Is realize we're apart.
So it's time for me to let you go,
And accept you had to leave me,
But just so you'll never forget it,
I'll Always Love You Stevie.

DESCHAMPS, Stevie
It is a year ago today, that an angel came and took you away
There is not a day that goes by, that we don't sit and wonder why
Why that angel had to take you away, when the Lord he could have let you stay
Day by day we hold you close, sharing the memories that mean the most
Sadly missed along the way, quietly remembered every day
Deep in our hearts your memory is kept, to love, to cherish and never forget
We love you Stevie (uncle Stevie).
