GRAINGER, Patricia
In loving memory of our dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Patricia GRAINGER, who passed away 10 years ago November 23, 1995. If roses grow in Heaven Lord, Please pick a bunch for us, Place them in our mother's arms, And tell her they're from us, Tell her we love and miss her, And when she turns to smile, Place a kiss upon her cheek, And hold her for awhile, Because remembering her is easy, We do it everyday. Forever missed Joanne, Nancy and Clayton; her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

BARRICK, Ishbel Mary (HOLMAN)
Raised in Toronto, the eldest of two, Ishbel spent many a summer at Wasaga Beach as well as winters in Collingwood. Through a chance meeting on a neighbourhood tennis court, she met Frank BARRICK, her husband-to-be. Following his air force service, Frank's career took them west to Winnipeg, Vancouver and finally they settled in Victoria where they built their own home in 1958.
Ishbel, or "Ish", her close Friends called her at times, was an avid camper, square-dancing belle, bowling champion, sewing wizard, and more. She was a sport fanatic - baseball, golf, football - but especially hockey - the Leafs could do no wrong! Ishbel was an optimist and an adventurer. There was nothing she wouldn't attempt except riding horses.
A mentor, listener and advice-giver only when asked, Ishbel was always firm but caring. Vivacious and joyful, she lived with the full colour palette and saw beauty everywhere. She was a voracious reader, geranium growing guru, crossword puzzle addict, bridge genius, homemaker extraordinaire, generous hostess and a stickler for being on time.
She cultivated Friends everywhere. She spent many happy hours at the Monterey Centre with the "ladies of the round table." But she also accumulated losses. She lost her brother, David HOLMAN, husband, Frank and many close relatives and Friends. Curious, open-minded and compassionate, Ishbel was engaged with world events and ideas until the past six months. She was born in Parkhill, Ontario, on June 30, 1919. September 14, 2005, our lives all changed with her death, but she did not depart. Ishbel still lives among us; she resides in our hearts.
Greatly missed by daughter Irene (PITT,) son Bruce (Diane,) grandchildren Bryan and Teresa PITT, and Michael BARRICK; the HOLMAN and BARRICK families of Ontario, cousins, nieces, nephews, Jody GRAINGER, Iain ROSE, Stuart PITT, many good Friends, and staff of Beacon Hill Villa.
Ishbel was an outstanding example of all that Friendship represents. Daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend, Grandmother, neighbour, and mentor - the list has no end!
If so desired, donations in Ishbel's honour may be made to the Canadian Red Cross Society, 909 Fairfield Road, Victoria, British Columbia, V8V 3A3 (250) 382-2043.

Judge led probe into baby deaths
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Samuel GRANGE, who chaired a royal commission into the deaths of 36 babies at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, has died. He was 85.
GRANGE also led a public inquiry into a 1979 train derailment in Mississauga that forced 218,000 residents to flee their homes in the largest peacetime evacuation in North American history, and was the first judge in Ontario to take a drunk driver's licence away for life.
GRANGE "was a most respected jurist," said Chief Justice Roy McMURTRY, who was Ontario's attorney general at the time of the hospital and derailment probes.
"He had a lot of responsibility which he took seriously, but he never took himself too seriously."
GRANGE was an Ontario Supreme Court judge and later a judge for the Ontario Court of Appeal.
He was appointed to look into the three dozen deaths at the Hospital for Sick Children between July 1980 and March 1981. The death rate in the two cardiac wards was about 625 per cent higher than normal during those months.
Police charged Susan NELLES, a former nurse at the hospital, with the deaths of four babies. On May 21, 1982, charges against her were dropped because there wasn't enough evidence for a trial.
The royal commission opened in June 1983. It lasted more than a year, cost more than $2.8 million and called 64 witnesses.
GRANGE concluded at least eight and possibly as many as 23 babies died from overdoses of the heart drug digoxin. But in the end, he didn't find anyone responsible for the deaths.
GRANGE, who died Friday, leaves a son, Dougall, and daughter, Alice. His wife, Patricia, died in 2003.

Robert FREEDOM, Surgeon 1941-2005
The director of cardiology at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children was a widely respected surgeon who wrote hefty textbooks and played a key role in the royal commission that investigated the mystery deaths of 36 baby patients
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, May 19, 2005, Page S11
Halifax -- Known by his peers as "Mr. Pediatric Cardiology," Robert FREEDOM was widely respected for his clinical skills and for his training of cardiologists from around the world, and as a prolific author of clinical research and textbooks, several of which are considered classics in the field. Less happily, he figured large in a sensational 1981 murder probe and a subsequent royal commission that investigated the deaths of more than 30 babies at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children
It wasn't uncommon to find the head of cardiology at Sick Kids hunched over his desk in the early morning hours writing. Over his career, Dr. FREEDOM wrote more than 400 medical papers, 125 book chapters, and eight textbooks, including the formidably large Atlas of Congenital Heart Disease and the Natural and Modified History of Congenital Heart Disease. Published in 2003, it was the last of his textbooks.
Robert Mark FREEDOM was a native of Maryland, where he and his twin brother, Gary, experienced a disruptive childhood. Shortly after they were born, their parents divorced and they had virtually no contact with their father, a neurologist and an eighth-generation physician. When they were still young, they moved to Southern California and were soon placed together in boarding schools and residential homes. The brothers remained close throughout their lives.
Robert studied medicine at the University of California at Los Angeles; Gary went on to earn a PhD in geography. Initially focused on neurosurgery, Dr. FREEDOM soon found a new interest. At medical school, he was asked to perform four autopsies on babies or children with congenital cardiac disease; from that experience, he decided to pursue a new path in medicine.
After finishing medical school, he was accepted for an internship and residency in pediatrics at Children's Hospital Boston. While there, he also studied pediatric cardiology. In 1972, he was recruited by Richard ROWE, then director of pediatric cardiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, to become the director of the diagnostic cardiac catheterization laboratory and assistant professor of pediatrics. When Dr. ROWE, who had become his mentor, was recruited to take over as director of cardiology at the Hospital for Sick Children in 1973, he asked Dr. FREEDOM to join him in Toronto.
Dr. FREEDOM moved to Canada in the summer of 1974 and spent the rest of his career there, dedicating himself to the hospital and the faculty of medicine at the University of Toronto. But the next decade did not unfold so smoothly, and there were times when he must have questioned his choice of careers, or at least hospitals.
On March 25, 1981, police accused Sick Kids nurse Susan NELLES of murdering baby Justin COOK. Two days later, she was charged with murdering three other infants. More than a year later, in May of 1982, Ms. NELLES was discharged at a preliminary hearing. A royal commission headed by Mr. Justice Samuel GRANGE of the Supreme Court of Ontario then examined the circumstances surrounding Ms. NELLES's arrest and prosecution.
The commission also tried to reconstruct events at the hospital from June 30, 1980, to March 22, 1981, to determine whether the babies died of heart defects or were murdered by overdoses of the heart drug digoxin. All told, the commission investigated 36 deaths.
In September of 1983, Dr. FREEDOM testified before the commission that he had told several of his relatives that "someone is killing our babies" after he learned that large amounts of digoxin had been found in a baby who died in March of 1981. Days later, he repeated the comment to Metro Toronto Police Staff-Sergeant Anthony WARR. He said he was convinced that something malevolent had transpired at the hospital after three babies died with high levels of the heart drug in their bodies.
"I believe I made the comment to my wife or my brother-in-law and his wife late on the Saturday night [March 21] after I heard of the digoxin readings on [infant] Allana MILLER," Dr. FREEDOM said. "The digoxin levels in the baby had been low [in the afternoon] and then they were sky-high. I thought something malicious was going on."
Dr. FREEDOM testified that when he learned of the high readings on the night of March 21, he thought, "My God, how can she go from a very low level to a very high level?... I wonder if it's murder?"
The commission also heard that he was so alarmed about the deaths that he told another doctor during a catherization on Justin COOK: "If this baby dies, we have a murderer on our hands."
Judge GRANGER later heard that Dr. FREEDOM had provided a vital link in the murder investigation when he told a homicide detective that problems with an intravenous line could have resulted in a digoxin overdose slowly infusing into the baby's body over several hours, making it possible for Ms. NELLES to have given the drug to the infant before she went off duty on the evening before the infant died.
At the preliminary hearing, Ms. NELLES was cleared of all charges after the judge found insufficient evidence to send the case to trial.
In 1986, Dr. FREEDOM succeeded his mentor as director of cardiology at Sick Kids, a post he held until the fall of 2000, when he stepped down because of failing health.
"We're one of the largest and best-known divisions of pediatric cardiology in the world," said Lee BENSON, a long-time colleague.
A big burly man, Dr. FREEDOM demanded high standards not only from himself but from everyone around him, and he could be intimidating. During his teaching rounds, medical students were known to tremble with fright. But, as a professor, he won his fair share of awards. He also helped in developing a three-year, sub-specialty training program in pediatric cardiology at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Dr. FREEDOM was known among colleagues for his encyclopedic memory. If another doctor so much as mentioned a study in an obscure publication, he was able to recall not only details but authors and publication date, said his friend and colleague Shi-Joon YOO.
His patients loved him. "The parents worshipped the ground he walked on," said Dr. BENSON, adding that years later he remembered their names. Obsessive about his work, he spent all hours of the day and night in the hospital. "He lived at Sick Kids," said his wife, Penny, whom he met in the late 1980s after a couple of failed marriages.
Despite suffering from diabetes, Dr. FREEDOM didn't take care of his own health. He enjoyed Scotch, smoking cigars and eating whatever he desired. "Bob did things his way," Dr. BENSON said.
Not one to usually take vacations, he changed his mind after a trip to Granville Ferry in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley. Located on the Annapolis River, he fell in love with the place and would spend a month there each year until he retired.
Dr. FREEDOM received several awards, including the Council Award of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, presented to Ontario physicians who are judged to have been closest to meeting society's vision of an "ideal" physician. In 2000, he was named to the Order of Ontario.
Robert FREEDOM was born on February 27, 1941, in Baltimore. He died on May 7, 2005, in Halifax of renal failure as a result of diabetes. He was 64. He leaves his wife Penny and stepson Jonathan.

Samuel GRANGE, Jurist (1920-2005)
Best known for heading the royal commission into the deaths of 24 babies at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, he declined to lay blame and stoically endured any criticism
By Oliver MOORE, Tuesday, August 30, 2005, Page S11
After falling quite by chance into the legal profession, Samuel GRANGE was at the centre of a series of key decisions and headed the controversial inquiry which determined that babies had been murdered at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children.
"He played an enormous role... he should be remembered because of his contribution," said Horace KREVER, another retired judge who oversaw a commission, in his case a probe of the tainted-blood scandal. "He was everything a judge should be: learned, wise, compassionate, patient and extraordinarily literate."
Judge GRANGE was on the bench at the Ontario Court of Appeal when it ruled the rape-shield law constitutional and when the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation miniseries The Valour and the Horror was ruled not to have libelled Canadian airmen. He also backed the decision by that court which allowed the custodial parent in a divorced couple to move the child far away from the former spouse.
But Judge GRANGE was most prominently in the public eye when he headed the royal commission into the deaths at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children. The probe was called after a series of deaths rocked the hospital, a leading pediatrics institution. From the summer of 1980 to the spring of 1981, the death toll on the hospital's cardiac ward was 625 per cent higher than the previous three nine-month periods.
After 191 days of testimony over three years, Judge GRANGE found that eight babies had been killed by drug overdoses and another 15 had died in suspicious circumstances. He issued his 224-page report in the first few days of 1985. He concluded that the babies had died because of overdoses of digoxin, a heart drug that many should not have been given. The babies' bodies, nine of which were exhumed for the investigation, revealed abnormally high digoxin levels.
Controversially, although Judge GRANGE recommended compensation to Susan NELLES, a nurse charged with several of the murders, he did not assign blame to anyone. He faulted no one and offered no solution to the mystery of who killed the babies.
The report angered parents of some of the babies and brought a wave of public criticism. Ms. NELLES had been released after a preliminary hearing because of lack of evidence and it appeared no one would be held responsible.
But according to his son Dougall, Judge GRANGE had long inured himself from criticism and maintained a healthy distaste for the media, in spite of initially considering a career in journalism. Later, though, he came publicly to the defence of inquiries at a time when they were being criticized as unwieldy and overly time-consuming.
"You can't run an inquiry without letting everybody have his say," he said in the mid-1990s. "You don't know what a person's going to say until he says it -- even though sometimes he says it and you're sorry you ever let him speak."
His father recognized the importance of many of the cases he heard and was keenly aware of the lasting impact of his decisions, said Dougall, a 46-year-old paralegal in Toronto. "Sometimes he didn't come to these decisions easily, he really worked, he was conscientious and would think very, very carefully about what he was doing. Regularly he would be up at three or four in the morning, going over the materials and trying to come up with a solution."
Judge GRANGE felt strongly that the practice of law had fallen into public disrepute and believed that one way to regain the people's trust would be to introduce television cameras into some courtrooms. "The image of justice is poor, I don't think we deserve that image," he said in the mid-1980s.
But he felt no compulsion to play to the public gallery. "He was of the view that you write your judgments, you write your reports, and you let them speak for themselves," said the younger Mr. GRANGE.
Many of the decisions are still with us, their importance being felt still today. The intrusive questioning of rape complainants is a thing of the past in part because of the decision written by Judge GRANGE. In the case of two adults accused of assaulting a 15-year-old girl in the basement of a school, the question of the girl's previous behaviour with men came up. But Judge GRANGE, then sitting on the Ontario Court of Appeal, made it clear that times had changed.
"Sexual reputation is no more an indicator of credibility in a woman then it is in a man," he wrote for the majority in the late summer of 1987. "It should no longer be recognized as relevant to the issue."
Two years earlier he backed another controversial Court of Appeal decision, this one written by then Madam Justice Rosalie ABELLA. Hearing the case of a divorced couple, one of whom wanted to move away with the couple's child, the three judges unanimously agreed that she could.
"The custodial parent's best interests are inextricably tied to those of the child," wrote Judge ABELLA, supported by Judge GRANGE and backed by then Mr. Justice Jean LABROSSE. In effect, they ruled that what is good for the custodial parent should be presumed to be good for the child.
Retired judge KREVER called him "an exemplary member of the profession" and said he was something approaching a poet laureate at the Court of Appeal.
"There are a lot of cases in which he wrote excellent decisions which will stand the test of time," said Judge KREVER, 76.
Dougall GRANGE said that, as a child of two journalists, his father was headed for that career when the war diverted him to Europe. Awarded the Croix de Guerre for his dangerous work as a forward artillery observer, he seems also to have caught the eye of several peers. Military law at the time allowed a serviceman accused of a crime to choose the officer he wanted to represent him. Mr. GRANGE, then a captain, had no legal training or experience but was chosen several times.
In one of the more serious cases, he defended an American who had lied his way into the war before his country became involved. When the United States entered the war he quit his unit with the intention of joining the allied U.S. forces. Caught and tried for desertion, he could have been shot. Then-Captain GRANGE successfully argued his case and the man was released, Dougall GRANGE said.
"He came back here afterwards and thought 'okay, why don't I try this. He loved the practice and he liked the people... it was his life'."
Samuel GRANGE was born on March 19, 1920, in London, Ontario He died on August 26, 2005, at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto after suffering a series of strokes. He was 85. He was predeceased in 2003 by his wife Patricia. He is survived by his son Dougall and daughter Alice.

By Donald MILNE, Wednesday, September 21, 2005, Page S7
Barrie, Ontario -- Donald MILNE of Barrie, Ontario, writes about Mr. Justice Samuel GRANGE, whose obituary appeared on August In 1980, or thereabouts, I organized a one-day, continuing-education event for the Canadian Bar Association and was delighted that Mr. GRANGE (or, by then, Mr. Justice GRANGE) would participate on a panel. The title of the subject to be discussed was Snafu'd Real Estate Transactions.
I duly requested a brief bio from all panelists. Judge GRANGE wrote, "I won the gold star for attendance at my local Sunday School -- after that, it has been all downhill." He then followed up with a phone call that caused some of my colleagues to express doubt about his participation in a panel with such a title. I weakly replied that I knew the "F" in the title could mean something other than "fouled." He hung up and I had an image of my star panelist begging off.
The day came and we had a full house. He arrived, I read the bio he had sent and he truly was the star of the day. The lesson I learned from him was to enjoy life more -- fouled up or otherwise.
