COOPER, Patricia Lucy (née GILLGAN)
Aged 81, from complications related to diabetes, on May 5, 2005, at Stratford General Hospital. Pat was born July 29, 1923, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, raised in Scotland, and immigrated to Canada in her 30s. She served in the Women's Royal Naval Service in World War 2, married Don COOPER on June 1, 1946, and had one child, Pamela. In Canada, she lived in Toronto, Montréal, Calgary, Kitchener, and finally, Stratford. After life as a homemaker and mother, Pat rejoined the workforce, first with Eaton's, and then, more true to her passions, as a proofreader/editor with a legal publisher. Pat is survived and missed by her husband of nearly 59 years Don COOPER, her daughter Pamela DELANEY, her sister Betty IZZARD of Toronto, her brother Vic GILLGAN and his wife Brenda of Derbyshire, England, her five nieces including, Barbara IZZARD- THYNNE, her many nephews, including Danny IZZARD, and Stephen, Peter and Phillip Gillgan, her grand-dog, Fiona, and seven grand-cats. Friends Nadine RAYNER and Christine FORD have lost a mentor and woman they admired. She joins her beloved parents, Vic and Ida GILLGAN, and her "son" Dusty the cat; all three of these "spirits" spent her last month in the hospital with her, according to Pat herself. She is also reunited with Colleen CHAPLIN and Chris STOKES, who she has missed dearly. As per her request, there will be no funeral. Pat's body has been donated to the University of Toronto. She will be remembered as a classy lady, with a well-honed wit, and a deep love for animals and the English language; as Danny put it, "she was the coolest." We owe our deepest thanks to Dr. Laurel MOORE for the care, admiration and respect she gave to Pat. Donations in Pat's memory should be sent to Pet Trust, Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada N1G 2W1. That would tickle her whiskers no end.

Patricia Lucy COOPER
By Pamela Catherine DELANEY, Thursday, October 27, 2005, Page A28
Lady, friend, knitter, chocaholic. Born July 29, 1923, in Belfast. Died May 5 in Stratford, Ontario, of diabetes complications, aged 81.
'I'm losing my mind," Pat confided to her close friend, Christine FORD, in the early 1990s. She knew. And what a mind she lost.
Pat and her parents moved to Ayrshire, Scotland, when she was one year old, and her accent bore the trademark "oatmeal savage," as she called herself. Pat's childhood was idyllic. Her father, Victor GILLGAN, was a warm, funny, very clever man; her mother, Ida, was more serious, and deeply wise. Pat's sister Betty and brother Vic were born in Scotland. Even in dementia, Pat's long-term memory retained images of her beloved Highlands.
An excellent student, proficient in languages and with an immense love of literature, Pat showed innate artistic talent and attended Ayr Academy, but the Second World War broke out. The contentment of family life, Friends and boyfriends was left behind and changed forever when she joined the Women's Royal Navy Service.
Stationed in northern Scotland, distant from the front, Pat fell into another happy phase of life, working as a torpedo mechanic, eating, drinking ("to stay warm") and dancing. As the war ended, and the loss of Friends sank in, Pat sought a new normalcy: She and Fleet Air Arm pilot Don COOPER married on June 1, 1946.
She and Don initially lived with his mother in Netherfield, England. After several difficult pregnancies and miscarriages, in early 1955 a pregnant Pat flourished. Her only child (except for her "son," Dusty the cat), Pamela, was born that summer. As it transpired, Pat had given birth to a lifelong best friend.
Then began the nomadic life. Two sea-sickened moves back and forth across the Atlantic. Two years in Montreal, Toronto for about 20 years, seven years in Calgary, where she happily worked as a proofreader (in French and English) for Carswell Legal Publications, and then back to Toronto. She retired in Kitchener, Ontario
I inherited Pat's sense of style, talent for design and love of writing. Together, we went to museums, galleries, ballet, theatre and films, and travelled to the Napa Valley in California and Halifax. During my years working in motorsports, Pat often accompanied me and became a mascot to drivers Franck Freon and Andrea Montermini, whom she adored.
On holiday in Quebec City, I noticed Pat drinking water, something she had always hated (unless frozen and chilling a shot of Scotch). She was diagnosed with diabetes.
After Don suffered a health breakdown, I moved my parents to my adopted hometown, Stratford, a place where Pat and I had enjoyed many theatrical performances and a place she had always wanted to live. And there, two years later, she would die.
Following a mild stroke in 1999, Pat's mind, in essence, left her. She was still the gracious and sweet gal she had always been, but gone was the vibrant intellect.
Pneumonia sent Pat to hospital in March and tests showed a lung tumour. Her dementia was profound by then: She believed that her parents and Dusty were in the room with her and she often did not recognize Don or me.
Then, something obstructed her throat and she was unable to eat. She tore out her intravenous line and, in accordance with her instructions, no attempts were made to force-feed her. She was taken off life support, administered drugs to keep her comfortable, and died nine days later, mere hours after I read to her Shakespearean sonnets and My Heart's in the Highlands by Robert Burns.
Even now, she continues to prove her mettle: Pat donated her body to the University of Toronto department of anatomy and cell biology.
Pamela is Pat's daughter.

Troubled husband faces charge in Cambodian woman's slaying
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
Tired of the voices in his head, Ngeab KHIN was heading to his homeland of Cambodia tomorrow to get spiritual help.
His wife, Yorn MEY, was travelling with him. After surviving civil war in Cambodia, refugee camps and a bout with throat cancer seven months ago, she was willing to help her husband on his journey.
Instead, yesterday, KHIN, 49, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of his wife MEY, 49.
And their two sons are left with a family torn apart.
"I don't have a mom or dad now. I don't know what to do," said son Soeun KHIN, 23, yesterday.
"They got their luggage packed and by the door and this is what happened. My mom survived war and throat cancer and now this."
It was the second slaying in London within 24 hours.
While the deaths of four people Monday on Princess Avenue drew hordes of media and police, only a line of yellow police tape and two cruisers on a quiet stretch of Chippewa Drive bore witness to yesterday's slaying.
Police were called about 12: 05 a.m. to 1081 Chippewa Dr. and found MEY dead.
There were signs of trauma to her body, but the cause of her death hasn't been determined, said London police Const. Jeff ARBING.
Police stressed they had not recorded any other incidents of domestic violence at the address before.
But they would release little other information until a post-mortem expected today.
Neighbours could reveal little about the family or shed light on what happened.
"To me they were just a nice old couple," said Laura GILLIAN, who lives across the road.
But behind the trim shrubs and inside the tidy-looking grey brick bungalow, there had been signs of trouble.
"He just started to get some different ideas in his mind," said the family's minister, Reverend Mom PEIN of the New Apostolic Church in London.
PEIN gathered family members at his home yesterday. While one son, Samnang, 20, went to identify his mother's body, Soeun tried to understand what went wrong.
"It happened after my grandmother, his mother, died, two or three years ago," Soeun said. "He (my dad) started becoming delusional. He believed he was a prophet."
The family went along until things got out of hand.
They tried to get KHIN help, but he refused. He believed he would die if he got medical help, Soeun said.
The family went to police, who suggested they find a doctor. They called an ambulance to the door about a year ago, but KHIN refused to go.
"He used to hide the knives because he thought we were going to hurt him. He thought he was the okay one and we were all wrong," Soeun said.
The family had fled Cambodia's civil war in the late 1970s and ended up in Thailand, where Soeun was born.
They arrived in Canada about 20 years ago. His mother and father found jobs at Cuddy Food Products, though both were on compensation because of physical injuries, Soeun said.
In the past few months, the stress of his father's mental illness was getting worse, Soeun said.
Monday evening, KHIN got up to work the overnight shift at Lamko Tool and Mould in London and saw his father. "He was just sitting in his chair. That's all he's been doing for the past couple of months."
His father figured he could get help in Cambodia for the voices in his head.
Soeun's wife sat on PEIN's front porch yesterday and, between sobs, called Friends in Cambodia who had been expecting to meet her in-laws at the airport.
"Her own mother died three years ago. Three months later, we got married and she got a new mom," Soeun said.
"They were very close. Now she is going through this again."
His wife was the first to learn about the slaying, coming home from work yesterday morning to see police tape outside the house.
She called Soeun at work and he rushed home.
"It just blew me away. He is a really good dad."
The couple lived in the home with their parents and younger brother.
"I don't know if I can stay after what happened," Soeun said.

GALLIE, Alan Edward
Alan Edward GALLIE (known to everyone as 'Doc') was born Feb 13, 1915 in Toronto, Ontario and died peacefully on August 6, 2005. Doc will be best remembered for his remarkable interest in everything and everyone around him, and his extraordinary ability to make Friends. Doc, a born engineer and natural outdoorsman, worked for Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. for 42 years in numerous mining camps throughout Northern Ontario and Manitoba. In 1939 he married his high school sweetheart Mary MITCHELL and took her to northern Manitoba where they spent their first winter in a tent at 40 below, to the horror of their parents and delight of themselves. As mine manager at Lynn Lake, Manitoba, Doc orchestrated the move of an entire town - buildings, people, dogs and all - 147 miles over a winter road from Sherridon to a new mine site at Lynn Lake. He never hesitated to get his hands dirty or to see things done right. Later, Doc became Vice President of Sales and travelled around the world selling Sherritt's nickel. When he retired, he and Mary lived full-time at the 'Saltbox' near Claremont, Ontario just outside Toronto. His passions were fly-fishing at Glenmajor, bird-watching and gardening. He energetically cared for future generations, with a deep involvement in the Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation scholarship program for engineering students, the Daisy Fund for children seeking treatment for retinoblastoma, and the pursuit of justice, honesty and common sense. Throughout it all, Doc built innumerable Friendships, born of a wonderful confidence, deep interest in and respect for others. Doc lived at his beloved Saltbox until the last day of his life. He died in his daughter Brenda's house in Toronto, surrounded by his family, enquiring after the interesting details of their lives until the end. Doc, son of William Edward GALLIE and Janet Louise (HART) GALLIE, is predeceased by his wife Mary Frances (MITCHELL,) and survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD (Gary GILLIES), Brenda GALLIE (Michael JEWETT), and Ann GALLIE (Dougal McCREATH;) by his grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD, and Frances and Gordon JEWETT; and by his nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY, Jane GALLIE, Louise GALLIE and Ian GALLIE. The Funeral service will be held at Grace Church on-the-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Rd (at Russell Hill Rd), Toronto, on Wednesday, August 10, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund through the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation, 555 University Ave, Toronto, Ontario, M5G 1X8 (1-800-651-5825) or www.sickkids.org/Foundation/ and specify 'The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund' under 'Additional Comments'.

GALLIE, Alan Edward
Alan Edward GALLIE (known to everyone as 'Doc') was born February 13, 1915 in Toronto, Ontario and died peacefully on August 6, 2005. Doc will be best remembered for his remarkable interest in everything and everyone around him, and his extraordinary ability to make Friends. Doc, a born engineer and natural outdoorsman, worked for Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. for 42 years in numerous mining camps throughout Northern Ontario and Manitoba. In 1939 he married his high school sweetheart Mary MITCHELL and took her to northern Manitoba where they spent their first winter in a tent at 40 below, to the horror of their parents and delight of themselves. As mine manager at Lynn Lake, Manitoba, Doc orchestrated the move of an entire town - buildings, people, dogs and all - 147 miles over a winter road from Sherridon to a new mine site at Lynn Lake. He never hesitated to get his hands dirty or to see things done right. Later, Doc became Vice-President of Sales and travelled around the world selling Sherritt's nickel. When he retired, he and Mary lived full-time at the 'Saltbox' near Claremont, Ontario just outside Toronto. His passions were fly-fishing at Glenmajor, bird-watching and gardening. He energetically cared for future generations, with a deep involvement in the Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation scholarship program for engineering students, the Daisy Fund for children seeking treatment for retinoblastoma, and the pursuit of justice, honesty and common sense. Throughout it all, Doc built innumerable Friendships, born of a wonderful confidence, deep interest in and respect for others. Doc lived at his beloved Saltbox until the last day of his life. He died in his daughter Brenda's house in Toronto, surrounded by his family, enquiring after the interesting details of their lives until the end. Doc, son of William Edward GALLIE and Janet Louise (HART) GALLIE, is predeceased by his wife Mary Frances (MITCHELL,) and survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD (Gary GILLIES), Brenda GALLIE (Michael JEWETT), and Ann GALLIE (Dougal McCREATH;) by his grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD, and Frances and Gordon JEWETT; and by his nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY, Jane GALLIE, Louise GALLIE and Ian GALLIE. The Funeral service will be held at Grace Church on-the-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Rd. (at Russell Hill Rd.), Toronto, on Wednesday, August 10, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund through the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation, 555 University Ave., Toronto, Ontario, M5G 1X8 1-800-651-5825 or www.sickkids.org/Foundation/ and specify 'The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund' under 'Additional Comments'.
