MATHESON, Wilhillmine Nevett
Born in Glasgow at 6 am April 2, 1914 died at 7 pm on Monday February 7, 2005. She was the last surviving child of Charles Joseph Keith MATHESON and Isa Keith ROSS and at the age of 90 lived the longest of her four brothers; Charles, John, William and Norman and her two sisters Gladys SCLATER and Phyllis MEREDITH. They are survived by Bud MEREDITH, Mary MATHESON and Lucienne MATHESON, the spouses of Phyllis, Billy, and Norm.
Her nieces, Joan GUTZEIT, Marsha GREENBAUM, Barbara WARREN, Pamela HARRISON, Lynda FEENAN, Nikki MATHESON, and Janice MATHESON and nephews Robbie MEREDITH, Ian MATHESON and Bryan MATHESON all have fond memories of her visits. Whether dancing, singing or telling stories, our Auntie Winnie always made each of us feel unique in this world. We will all miss that special quality.
Sadly she lost three young people she was especially close to Lynda's husband Mike OSTROWSKI who died at 44, her nephew Scot MATHESON, Billy's son who died at 38 and nephew Donald MATHESON, Charlie's son who died at 28.
Her oldest brother Charlie (age 19) arrived in Toronto, Canada in the fall of 1928 and was followed by their parents and Gladys (17), John (16), Winnie (14), Phyllis (11), Billy (8) and Norm (6). Winnie started working shortly after she arrived and a year later was employed by General Electric Canada where she worked for 50 years. Quite an achievement, fifty years with one company! She was well liked there and respected for the good job she did in the accounting department. They didn't want her to leave and she agreed to stay for a few months after her 65th birthday.
In her retirement years she enjoyed living in Dunedin, Florida in the winter months and in Toronto at 33 Rosehill Ave. for the remainder of the year. When her health failed she moved to the Laughlin Centre which she enjoyed. With a twinkle in her eye, she remarked that they kept her so busy she might as well be working. She loved the people, companionship, the games and the outings. Later she moved to Belmont House. Her nieces Janice and Marsha who spent time with her during her last two days were impressed by how well she was liked and cared for there during her final days.
A private burial will be held. At a later date this spring, the family has planned a reception to celebrate the lives of Winnie and her brothers and sisters. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be sent to the Alzheimer's Association.

Peter WIDDRINGTON, Executive and Chief Executive Officer: 1930-2005
As the head of Labatt, he was a 'father of baseball in Canada' who established the Blue Jays in Toronto and later came close to becoming president of the American League. For a time, he was even commissioner of baseball
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, February 18, 2005 - Page S7
Peter WIDDRINGTON once mused that he could well be the only beer salesman with an M.B.A. from Harvard. The long-time executive and former chairman of the Toronto Blue Jays took his Ivy League degree to John Labatt Ltd., where he started out in sales and held senior positions along the way before becoming head of the company in 1973. He held that position until 1989.
When talks started more than 30 years ago about bringing major league baseball to Toronto, Mr. WIDDRINGTON was at the front and centre. He helped put together a team that would eventually make it happen. The day came on March 26, 1976, when the American League voted to expand to Toronto, awarding a franchise to a group made up of Labatt, Imperial Trust Ltd. and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Three months later, a franchise fee of $7-million (U.S.) was agreed upon. Early on, the owners decided that the franchise was to be run on sound business principles, where the baseball people were allowed to act freely within certain parameters, but were to report back to the board.
"He was definitely one of the fathers of baseball in Canada," said Paul GODFREY, the president of the Blue Jays. "Without the corporate leadership of Labatt's, there would have been no baseball in Toronto."
Mr. WIDDRINGTON's interest wasn't focused just on the bottom line: He was also a big sports fan. He truly loved the game of baseball and was lucky enough to have been chairman of the Blue Jays during the glory years leading up to, and including, the 1992 and 1993 World Series, when the team beat Atlanta and Philadelphia respectively. He watched as the Blue Jays became the first team to capture back-to-back World Series titles since the 1977-1978 Yankees.
Even last year, long after he had left the team's corporate management, Mr. WIDDRINGTON would still make the two-hour trip to Toronto from his home in London, Ontario, to watch a game with Mr. GODFREY. Or, if he wasn't with the president, then he'd be down in the stands taking in a game. "He was one of the big fans," Mr. GODFREY said.
Born in Toronto, Peter Nigel Tinling WIDDRINGTON was the son of Margery MacDONALD and Gerard WIDDRINGTON. His father, who emigrated from England, was assistant headmaster at Pickering College, a private school in Newmarket, Ontario, midway between downtown Toronto and Barrie. The young Mr. WIDDRINGTON attended Pickering College, where he played football and hockey. After high school, he studied economics at Queen's University and then went on to Harvard Business School. Later, he received an honorary doctorate from the University of Western Ontario.
One of his early successes as president of Labatt was to have the bright idea of producing a Canadian version of Budweiser, with the result that the beer grabbed a 7 per cent market share in the opening weeks of the 1991 summer season -- a stunning figure by industry standards. Two weeks later, Labatt launched "Bud" in Quebec and sold out its entire inventory in a day.
In addition to his role as president and chief executive officer, Mr. WIDDRINGTON served as chairman from 1987 until 1991, when Interbrew of Belgium took over the beer company and the Blue Jays. During his time at Labatt, he also played a key part in the creation of TSN, Canada's first all-sports network.
In 1993, Mr. WIDDRINGTON temporarily occupied the office of commissioner of major-league baseball after Fay VINCENT was forced out by the owners, and deputy Steven GREENBERG left of his own accord.
"There was no senior person in baseball in the commissioner's office and, at the time, there were 170 people working there, so I was there on somewhat of a part-time basis for an average of two to three days a week from January through until December," Mr. WIDDRINGTON said.
Then, for a few years in the mid-1990s, he was also the chairman of Major League Properties until interim baseball commissioner Bud Selig decided Mr. WIDDRINGTON should go because he was no longer affiliated with baseball.
"I miss baseball, and I miss the Jays, but I had to recognize that when Interbrew bought Labatt's, they were going to make some changes, as they are entitled to do," Mr. WIDDRINGTON later told a reporter. "I personally was disappointed but, structurally and objectively, I understood."
Mr. WIDDRINGTON's power-packed résumé shows he was also chairman of Laidlaw Inc., a director of Brick Brewing Company, Radiology Corporation of America Inc., Gatekeeper Business Solutions Inc., and Pickering College. In a 1994 interview with The Globe and Mail, he admitted that he wasn't the type to retire and head south to golf every day or lie on a beach.
"Really, I'm a professional manager, I guess you could say," is the way Mr. WIDDRINGTON described himself at the time.
How did he find the time for everything at an age when he could have easily been slowing down his life? "I do the best I can in juggling time and responsibilities," he said in 1994. "It depends on my other schedules. I can't drop everything and devote all my time to baseball. Am I retired? I suppose I'm retired from Labatt's, but certainly I'm not retired in the sense of playing golf or going down south, but I don't have a 9-to-5 job."
That same year, he was in the running to become president of the American League. While he never seriously saw himself as a contender for the commissioner's job, the American League job had its attractions. After all, his beloved Jays were an American League club.
"I was approached [to apply] in both cases," he told The Globe and Mail. "I've been interviewed twice for the American League post. I would be interested in the job. I think they'll be making up their minds fairly shortly. I think I would enjoy it very much, but I'm just taking it a day at a time."
In the end, it came to nothing and instead, he found himself involved in operating a series of companies.
In 1997, he landed in the middle of a bitter corporate conflict of the kind long remembered by the business community. A succession feud erupted within the family that owned Cuddy International Corp., then Canada's largest poultry processor with about $500-million in annual sales, a staff of 3,000 people worldwide and a juicy contract to supply McDonald's with McNuggets. The London, Ontario, company had been rife with plots and counterplots that pitted the founder against one or more of his five sons, and between 1992 and 1996 had gone through several chief executive officers. At the time, Peter WIDDRINGTON was the fifth or sixth Chief Executive Officer.
Not surprisingly, the situation was not to anyone's liking and Mr. WIDDRINGTON made his exit. Most recently, he was chairman of Brick Brewing of Waterloo, Ontario
Until the end, Mr. WIDDRINGTON had one foot in the business world and one foot in the sports world. Earlier this month, he had joined Tom VALCKE, president of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, in New York, where they met with Charles Bronfman to ask him to sponsor the hall's expansion and planned academy in St. Marys, Ontario Mr. WIDDRINGTON was chair of the hall's fundraising campaign, which is currently aiming to raise $5.3-million. Mr. VALCKE was more than impressed with Mr. WIDDRINGTON's skill in the boardroom on February 2. "Based on that meeting, we will be having another meeting with [Mr.] Bronfman."
Afterward, Mr. WIDDRINGTON remarked that it was one of the best presentations he had ever been a part of. Despite the high note, he didn't have time to celebrate or even to join his colleagues for dinner. He bid them farewell and immediately headed back to the airport. Just over a week later, after an exhilarating day of skiing in Aspen, Colorado., he suffered a heart attack.
"He was living life in the fast lane," Mr. Valcke said.
Peter WIDDRINGTON was born in Toronto on June 2, 1930. He died in Aspen, Colorado., on February 11, 2005. He was 74. He is survived by his wife, Betty Ann, daughters Cindy and Stacy, brother Michael and three grandchildren. A funeral service is set for today at St. Paul's Cathedral in London.

GREENBERG, Leonard Herman B.Sc., M.Sc., PhD, and professor emeritus
The physics community lost a respected long time member and teacher on November 10, 2005. Len GREENBERG taught in the physics department at the University of Regina for 38 years, including 5 years as department head, retiring in 1990. Co-workers recall him as an extremely good physicist, instrumental in bringing the small department recognition as one of the best in Canada in the field of sub-atomic physics. Len's forte was writing, however, and his two books, "Discovery in Physics for Scientists and Engineers" and "Physics for Biology and Pre-med Students" have been called literature as well as science, and were translated into several languages. In his early career, Len was deeply involved in the development of the cobalt bomb for radiation in cancer therapy at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, and he worked for many years at the Allan Blair Memorial Clinic in Regina. Although not an astronomer, Len developed and taught the first astronomy classes at the University of Regina.
Len was born on October 5, 1925 in Calgary, Alberta, one of four children of Anna and Oscar, who had emigrated from Sweden. Len obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the University of Alberta and PhD from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon in the mid-1950s. He moved to Regina in 1952, and lived there until 1972, when he moved to the village of Silton. Summers were spent on Kenderdine Island in Lac La Ronge, where Len found a retreat and idyllic environment for his writing.
Len was predeceased by his parents, his sister Evelyn and his brother George. Len will be sadly missed by Ann, his wife of 32 years. Len will also be missed by his sister Bernice CRAIG (Cameron) of Cranbrook, British Columbia and his first wife Joyce HENDERSON of Red Deer, Alberta. Len was an inspiration to his children Lynnea WILLIAMS (Bruce) of Regina, Pauline WATSON (Bob) of Oakville, Ontario, Sherrill BARKER (John) of Red Deer, Alberta, David GRONBERG of Regina, Ian GREENBERG (Sue) of Vancouver, Dan McKAY of Edmonton, Stephen McKERRACHER (Donna) of Drake, Saskatchewan. Len also leaves thirteen grandchildren: Notanee and Roshi (Regina), Kevin and Andrea (Oakville), Natasha and Nathan (Red Deer), Sarah (Scarborough), Chelsea, Eliza and Matthew (Victoria), Ayla, Sterling and Milan, and three great grandchildren. Len is already deeply missed by his dogs Suzy and Gus.
The funeral will be held at Speers Funeral Chapel, Regina, at 1: 30 on Tuesday November 15. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a bursary to be set up in his name, directed to the University of Regina, External Relations, 210 North Residence, S4S 0A2, Toll free 1-866-667-7500 in Canada or the United States.

PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10.30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queens Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queens University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. West, at Windermere, East of the Jane Subway, on Tuesday, November 29, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of his life will take place at Timothy Eaton Church on Wednesday, November 30 at 3.00 p.m. Donations may be made in his memory to a favorite charity. It is not often that a man can live for most of a century, can experience life before telephones, cars or airplanes were common, and can enjoy the fun of WiFi on an IMac, lucid to the end. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed.
