HUDSON, Carole
Born September 19, 1937 Killed April 6, 2005 For My Mom: With regret I face each day, Sorry for the things I did not say. With Gods help you tried to hang on, At the hands of the doctors your life was gone. With no idea where to begin, Anger and fear flow within. Your unconditional love would never bend, You'll always be my mother; My very best friend Love Karen

TAILOR/TAYLOR, Dallas (née HOMER- DICKSON/DIXON)
Died peacefully in Dundas, Ontario on January 11, 2005 at the age of 90. Dallas leaves her children Susan CARLSON, Peter TAILOR/TAYLOR and his wife Mary MOOGK, Tim TAILOR/TAYLOR and his wife Claire and Penelope HUDSON. She leaves her adored grandchildren Janet, Stephen, Leif, Jennifer, Francesca, Alexandra, Adam, Mark, Christopher and Philip and her great grandchildren Max, Aiden, Alexandra, Anika and Olivia. She is also survived by her 'baby brudder' Douglas HOMER- DICKSON/DIXON of Victoria. Dallas was born in Toronto on July 2, 1914. She lived in Winnipeg and Victoria before travelling to England to work in London during World War 2. After the war she married Paul TAILOR/TAYLOR and became passionately immersed in the life of a naval wife. This resulted in her living in Ottawa, Victoria, Washington, D.C., London, England and Hamilton, Ontario. It was in the Hamilton area that Dallas spent her last 44 years. As a manifestation of her lifelong love of the arts, she was for many years actively engaged with the National Ballet of Canada. In addition to her involvement with the Hamilton Branch she contributed to the development of the National Ballet School. Dallas was a cook extraordinaire who believed that most problems could be solved with good food. She was well known for her parties, her twinkle, her storytelling and her ability to put people at ease. The family would like to acknowledge the tremendous support of the caregivers at the Hamilton Community Care Access Centre, Victorian Order of Nurses and Paramed for helping Dallas conclude her life in her own home. In particular, we recognize the support of Tammy HENDSEBEE whose professional dedication to and love for Dallas were exceptional. A memorial visitation will be held in the J.B.

HUDSON, Marion Ruth (née WIGMORE)
At age 87, peacefully departed this world early Friday morning, February 4th, 2005. Ruth was a loving and devoted wife to her husband and best friend, the late J. Elliott HUDSON for 45 years the caring and supportive mother to her three sons John (Gail), Bert (Marianne) and Bob (Carol Anne); and the proud and generous grandmother to Abbie, Katherine, Emily, Heather, Jill, and Sarah. She leaves her brothers Versey (Margaret) and Bob (June) and sister Dorrie (Art) KERR as well as many nephews and nieces. She also leaves her many Friends and colleagues whose lives will, for a moment, take on a sadder hue. Born in Toronto, Ontario, Ruth was one of eight children born to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Curran WIGMORE and Ena BLACKBURN. She was educated at Leslie Street Public School and Riverdale High School, Toronto. Graduated from the Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House and made Deaconess at St. James Cathedral, Toronto. Before her marriage to Judge J. Elliott HUDSON, she worked as a staff member at St. Faith's Lodge in Toronto, a home for delinquent girls. She was then appointed Field Secretary for the Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House. During World War 2, Ruth served as a Lady Assistant to the Chaplaincy Service, C.W.A.C., and was affectionately called, 'Wiggy' by her fellow officers - a term taken from her maiden name, 'Wigmore'. The other ranks called her 'Madre' - a take off on the word 'Padre'. Following the war Ruth took a special course in Youth Work at the University of Toronto and then worked for a short time in the Anglican Diocese of Rupert's Land and the Diocese of Saskatoon. She was appointed Deaconess at St. Timothy's Anglican Church, North Toronto. Like many of her generation in the Great Depression, Ruth left high school to help support her family. When her children were themselves in school, Ruth completed her high school diploma at night and then entered university. In 1961, she graduated from the University of King's College with a B.A., and the next year, completed her B.Ed. from Dalhousie University. Ruth was an elementary teacher in Halifax at Richmond and Ardmore Schools before taking on the position of Principal at Elizabeth Sutherland School and later at Holly Drive School. She retired in June of 1982. As a Christian, Ruth was keen on Christian education in the public schools and firmly believed that as an educator, one had a responsibility to teach the whole child - body, mind and spirit. Active in church, community and sports, she enjoyed lawn bowling, bridge and travel. Prior to her 85th birthday, she advised her family not to make any special plans as 'I won't be here'. When asked to explain what she meant, Ruth said that she'd booked a flight to New Zealand where she would be attending an international conference of the Order of St. Luke (a healing order of the Anglican Church). She attended the Conference and had a marvellous time. She loved to talk about how she swam in the Great Barrier Reef on her birthday. But perhaps her most extraordinary trip was the one she embarked upon in the spring of 1995. Ruth had attended an Anglican World Relief and Development meeting in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, where she met a woman from Uganda. When Ruth asked how women from Nova Scotia could offer specific assistance to the women of Uganda, the answer was to assist with her village's transportation needs. After much prayer and the support of the Dean and clergy of the Chebucto region, 77 year old Ruth and two female Friends aged 73 and 87 personally delivered a new crewcab truck to the Diocese of Uganda. Helping others was a way of life for her and her closets are full of various community service volunteer awards. She became interested in Blind Sport Nova Scotia and became a national presence in the sport of blind lawn bowling. She coached one of her blind athletes to a Canadian championship. Even after the onset of pneumonia, she visited her Friends, sympathising with them on their aches and pains and encouraging them to carry on. 'Praise and pray, and peg away!' was her motto and a day didn't pass without her doing all three as fervently as she could. She was a natural teacher and, like all the best teachers, she taught by example. When Elliott, her husband and best friend died, she wrote a book about his life, All Rise - a clever title that commented both on Elliott's judgeship and Ruth's sure and certain hope of the Resurrection. A service of Festive Evensong commemorating the life of this remarkable Christian will be held at the Cathedral Church of All Saints', Tower Road, Halifax on Friday, February 11th at 4: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Restoration Fund of the Cathedral Church of All Saints, the University of King's College Development Fund, the Diocese of Fredericton Choir School, or a charity of your choice.

Alvin HUDSON
By Heather HUDSON, Wednesday, March 23, 2005, Page A22
Husband, father, grandfather. Born January 16, 1944, in Brockville, Ontario Died February 22, in Brockville, of bone cancer, aged To those who didn't know him, my father appeared to be a quiet and unassuming man who worked hard to provide for his family. Perhaps even he didn't realize the powerful imprint he leaves behind as a role model to his children, a reliable and loyal partner to his wife and an affable companion to his many Friends and family.
My dad didn't need acknowledgment and approval to feel secure about who he was. He didn't labour over what could or should have been. He accepted life's challenges as they came and made the most of every situation without fuss.
In the same way, we didn't need to feel his arms around us to feel embraced. He didn't need to say, "I love you" for us to know that was true. He lived his love for us with his unwavering support and constant, gentle presence.
He grew up on a sprawling farm just east of Brockville, the youngest of three children. The values he learned as a child -- loyalty, dignity and teamwork -- only strengthened as he matured. When he married my mother in 1965, they built a home less than a mile from his homestead and built a life on a similar foundation of mutual respect, admiration and devotion.
Their 39-year marriage wasn't perfect; it was real. There's no better example of a life built on compromise than in the way they spent their last few years together: When Dad decided he wanted to enjoy the sun of tropical vacations, Mom overcame her discomfort of being far from home. In turn, Dad spent many hours relaxing in the car while Mom scoured shopping malls everywhere. His payoff was her flushed happiness at the latest bargain and the ensembles he loved to admire.
With the arrival of children, he took immense pleasure in his son Michael's extensive hockey career and was a doting dad to me. Like his father, Michael built a house half a mile from his family home. Delighted, Dad offered his support, his labour and his tool chest to complete the job and took as much pride in the final product as Michael and his wife Nicole did.
Rearing a daughter was more challenging. When tempers flared between Mom and me during my turbulent teens, he never took sides, always finding a way to quietly support both of us. In fact, his first valuable lesson to his prospective son-in-law Steve was the graceful art of getting out of the way of a good mother/daughter battle while offering a neutral shoulder.
In the last two years, he revelled in being a grandfather. From his first hasty trip to Toronto on her first morning of life to his many enthusiastic romps with "Grandpa's little girl," he thoroughly appreciated this new member of the family. One of his last gifts was defiantly introducing her to the fizzy pleasure of her first soft drink.
Although Mom was a teacher by profession, Dad was an equal partner in our education. His values are what we live by every day. We are reminded of his incredible work ethic when our own careers feel overwhelming. As a loyal employee of Selkirk Metalbestos for more than 40 years, he showed us the importance of commitment and following through on your word. His love of highway adventure and excellent driving skills also led him to a part-time job driving a transport for the last 15 years. He wasn't afraid of hard work.
His strength, quiet fortitude and commitment to family inspire us as we begin our own families. He showed us that love isn't always about big bear hugs, long talks into the night and weekly dinners together. A gesture, a look and a quick phone call were the ways he stayed connected.
The expressions we use, the way we live our lives, the values we pass onto our children are rooted in the man that he was. In that sense, he will never leave us.
Heather is Alvin's daughter.

Week Of Remembrance: George OFFLEY, Fleet Air Arm Pilot (1922-2005)
Flier was part of a group that attacked the Bismarck in antiquated biplanes
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, November 11, 2005, Page S7
Ottawa -- George OFFLEY climbed into his Fairey Swordfish torpedo bomber, strapped himself in and started his engine. Nearby, on the heaving deck of the aircraft carrier H.M.S. Victorious, eight other Swordfish crews from 825 Squadron of the Fleet Air Arm were preparing to launch their aircraft in pitch darkness.
Their mission? To find and sink the Bismarck, the pride of the German navy and one of the largest capital ships afloat. Earlier that day, on May 24, 1941, the Bismarck had sunk the battle cruiser H.M.S. Hood, itself the pride of the Royal Navy. Watching grimly from the Victorious, Mr. OFFLEY, who had turned 19 five days earlier, saw the Hood blow up. "We could see the huge fireball in the sky, a thousand feet high," he said six decades later. The loss of the Hood shocked the British Empire to its core.
The Bismarck, the biggest ship in the German Kriegsmarine, displaced 42,000 tons and boasted eight 15-inch guns. On May 21, she and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen tilted the balance of power in the North Atlantic when they set out from Bergen, Norway, to raid British convoys. At this time, 11 British convoys, including a troop convoy, were at sea.
After the Hood blew up, H.M.S. Prince of Wales scored two hits but was forced to break off the action after receiving seven hits from both enemy ships.
The Bismarck, her speed reduced by the battle damage, turned south and made for German-occupied France. Admiral Sir John Tovey, the commander of the Home Fleet, ordered the Victorious's Swordfish aircraft to attack her. The open cockpit biplane, acquired by the Fleet Air Arm in 1936, had a top speed of 132 miles and hour. Many thought it was obsolete for modern warfare.
At 10 p.m. on May 24, Mr. OFFLEY pushed his throttle forward and flew his Swordfish off the deck of the Victorious in what became the first carrier-borne air strike against a battleship in naval history. Ninety minutes later, at 11: 30 p.m., Mr. OFFLEY and the other eight crews, including their leader, Lieutenant-Commander Eugene Esmond, found their target and dived to the attack.
"In appalling weather we sighted the Bismarck and moved in to attack at about 200 feet above sea level, holding [our] torpedoes till we were approximately 500 feet from the Bismarck. A little further, with the open cockpit, we could have spit on [her]," said Mr. OFFLEY.
Ignoring heavy fire from the Bismarck's secondary armament, Mr. OFFLEY and his fellow pilots dropped their torpedoes. Only one pilot managed to hit the target after going around twice to get a better shot. His torpedo hit the Bismarck's armoured belt, causing little damage.
Two days later, Swordfish from the aircraft carrier H.M.S. Ark Royal caught up with the Bismarck, by now in the Bay of Biscay. A torpedo exploded in its steering compartment, jamming its rudder and sealing its fate. The next day, the Royal Navy sent the Bismarck to the bottom.
George OFFLEY had joined Rolls-Royce in 1936 at the age of 14 as an apprentice mechanical engineer. On February 20, 1940, he volunteered for the Fleet Air Arm and pilot training. A few months later, he flew air cover during the evacuation of 338,000 British and French troops from Dunkirk, France.
He never forgot "flying over all kinds of boats, fishing boats, sailboats, tug boats, navy ships, all filled with the living, the dying and the dead. I was 18 years old, trying not to look at the complete disarray, panic and confusion below me. From the ack-ack bursts, the aircraft and I received a number of shrapnel hits, one of which I still carry with me in the centre of my forehead."
After attacking the Bismarck, Mr. OFFLEY was sent to H.M.S. Howe, a 42,000-ton battleship assigned to escort convoys through the Barents Sea to the Russian port of Murmansk. Mr. OFFLEY's job was to fly a Walrus aircraft, which acted as the ship's eye in the sky, searching for enemy submarines.
It wasn't an easy job because taking off by catapult was a challenge. "The aircraft must reach flying speed while travelling across the deck from port to starboard, or vice versa. This is the trickiest moment, the aircraft is about to leave the trolley. Do we have flying speed or not? If we do not, then like a stone, we drop."
After completing his mission, Mr. OFFLEY had to land his ungainly Walrus in the sea. The gunner climbed out on the upper wing, opened the hatch, got out the ring and held it out at arm's length to await a hook from the ship. With luck, the crane operator then lifted the aircraft back on the ship. "There [was] no room for mistakes or second attempts," Mr. OFFLEY said.
Mr. OFFLEY met his future wife, Mary HUDSON, a member of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service, at a dance in Shearwater, Nova Scotia, near the end of the war. It didn't take long for him to sweep her off her feet, his daughter Diane recalled. "He came out of the blue and [informed her], 'The next dance is mine.' She thought that he was very bold, so she went with someone else. Then he cut in and that's all it took." They were married on October 9, 1946. Mrs. OFFLEY died on January 16 this year.
After emigrating to Canada with his wife in 1947, Mr. OFFLEY spent two years with the federal government's atomic energy facility at Chalk River, Ontario Moving to Canadair, he was in charge of the mobile training unit responsible for training pilots and ground crew at various Royal Canadian Air Force stations.
Forty years after the war, the Soviet Union decorated Mr. OFFLEY with the Murmansk Medal and the Arctic Circle Medal for his service on the Murmansk run. An active and vocal supporter of veterans' rights for 60 years, Mr. OFFLEY served on the federal government's Veterans' Advisory Committee. He was awarded the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002 for his work on behalf of veterans.
George William Clive OFFLEY was born on May 19, 1922, in Basford, Nottinghamshire, England. He died on September 1 in Ottawa, as the result of a car accident. He was 83. He leaves his daughters Diane, Margaret, Judith-Ann and Cathrine. He was predeceased by his wife, Mary.

HISLOP, George
Canada's leading gay rights activist. George HISLOP died peacefully on Saturday, October 8, 2005 at Toronto Grace Hospital, on Church Street. George was born in Swansea (now Toronto) on June 3, 1927, the youngest son of John HISLOP and Ada (MOFFITT) HISLOP. George said that he never came out of the closet because he was never in it. He always knew he was gay, and his family always loved him unconditionally. George studied theater at the University of Toronto, and spent his early years in the 1950's working on stage and in television in London and Toronto. He met his great love, Ronald SHEARER, at Hanlan's Point in 1958. They were inseparable until Ronald's untimely death in 1986 from complications following cardiac surgery. George worked at a variety of jobs over the years. For a time, George and Ronnie operated a design business together. George also operated a number of other businesses over the years, including Crispin's Restaurant, Buddy's Bar, the Selby Hotel and Boots Bar, Bar racks Baths, Robert's Restaurant, Rogues bar, Rawhide and George's Townhouse. He was editor of Sightlines and Esprit magazines. George took an early interest in gay rights activism, in which he played a leadership role all his life. He was cofounder of the University of Toronto Homophile Association in 1969, and the Community Homophile Association of Toronto in 1971. He helped organize the first gay rights demonstration on Parliament Hill in 1971. He and Ronnie were the first openly gay couple in Canada, and were featured on national television and in Maclean's magazine. George was the first openly gay candidate for public office in Canada, residence unning for alderman in 1980 and for the provincial legislature in 1981. George was charged as a 'keeper' during the notorious bath house raids of 1981, and he was a leader in the successful resistance to that persecution. He also lobbied Parliament for inclusion of gays and lesbians in the Charter of Rights, and fought for the inclusion of sexual orientation in Ontario's Human Rights Code. George was also concerned with health issues affecting the L.G.B.T. community. He was on the Board of the A.I.D.S. Committee of Toronto in the 1980's. George was the first President of the Hassle Free Clinic, a post he continued to hold at his death. In 2003, at the age of 76, he spearheaded a national class action for Canada Pension Plan same sex survivor's pensions which resulted in the largest class action trial judgment in Canadian legal history, and the first such award in the world for gays and lesbians. The trial judge rightly described George as a 'legend'. He pursued all of his causes with courageous persistence, with tremendous charm and great humour. George also ser ved the City of Toronto as a member of the Planning Advisory Board and later the Committee of Adjustments for many years, the first openly gay person to be appointed to civic office in Canada. George was proud to serve the city he loved so much. He was a well-known amateur historian. The City acknowledged his lifelong contribution by the creation of the George Hislop Park in the heart of Toronto's lesbian and gay community. George was honoured with many awards from his city and his community. He was recognized as a community hero by the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto, and was Grand Marshall of the Pride Parade in 2004. In 2005, he became the first recipient of the Karl Heinrich Ulrichs Award from the International Lesbian and Gay Law Association in recognition of his lifetime contribution to the worldwide movement for lesbian and gay equality. George was predeceased by Ronnie, by his parents and his two older brothers, John and William. George's death is a great loss to his many Friends in the L.G.B.T. community and beyond, around the world. He is lovingly missed by his dear friend and volunteer caregiver, Christopher HUDSPETH, and by his nephews and nieces, Jim HISLOP and his wife Wendy of Mississauga, John and his wife Gail HISLOP, Bruce HISLOP, Ann NORQUAY and husband John, Jo Ann HISLOP, and Susan HOLMSTOROM and husband Jim and by many grand nephews and grand nieces. They were always proud of Uncle George. Friends may call at the Rosar Morrison Funeral Home and Chapel, 467 Sherbourne Street (South of Wellesley) on Tuesday, October 11, 2005 and on Wednesday, October 12, 2005 from 6 until 9 p.m. A Party and Tribute to George's life will be held on November 6, 2005 at a location to be announced. There will be no Funeral Service at George's request. In memory of George, donations to the Hassle Free Clinic, Lesbian/Gay Community Appeal of Toronto, Egale or to the Toronto Grace Hospital would be welcomed.
