FRANKS, Gladys Evelyn (née BATCHELOR)
Gladys Evelyn FRANKS was born in Proton Township, May 19, 1914 and entered eternal rest April 14, 2005 at Dufferin Oaks. She was the fifth child of Samuel and Edith (CAMPBELL) BATCHELOR. Gladys is survived by one sister, Elva DUNN, Toronto, and two brothers Ernie (Eunice), Collingwood and Fred (Melrose) of Orangeville.
Gladys was predeceased by her husband Osborne who was killed in a construction accident, December, 1946, one sister Ila FARR and four brothers - John, Edward, Wilfred and Robert, an infant son and a grand_son Tim FRANKS. Gladys' children are Russell (Arlene) of Orangeville, Marie HODGKINSON, Toronto, Leslie (Isabell) of Dundalk, Delbert (Diane) of Orangeville, and Keith (Pat) of Dundalk. Gladys' grandchildren are: Wilda (Bob) HARDING, Jeff (Diane) FRANKS, Mark (Sonya) FRANKS, Dawn (Scott) HIGGINSON, Tammy (Paul) NIXON, Jeremy FRANKS, Rob (Jenn) FRANKS, Gaye FRANKS, Scott (Kristin) FRANKS. Great-grandchildren are: Jennifer (Rick) JOHNSTON, Chris HARDING, Carter, Jordan, Tanner, Natalie, Ryan, Tyler FRANKS and Courtney, Kristen, Ashley NIXON.
Gladys was raised at Saugeen Junction, north of Proton Station. Her parents were farmers, and then bought the brick yard at Proton Station, then returned later to farming. Their children all knew what hard work was. Gladys and her siblings attended public school at Proton Station and as a young girl worked at home and did housekeeping for neighbours.
Gladys and Osborne were married in 1935, farming in the south of Proton, then to Artemesia Township and settling on the 3rd Line of Osprey, near Hatherton. With a family of five children, times being hard in the forties, Osborne worked with Greenwood Construction as well as farming. It was while Osborne was away at work that the tragic news was received of Osborne's sudden death, December 2, 1946 in a construction accident. Gladys was left a widow and five children to raise. Being the strong and courageous person she was, she struggled on and with the help of family, community and Friends, Gladys kept farming and raising her children and teaching them skills of life. She was always so appreciative of the help she received in those difficult years. Gladys farmed until 1970, when she sold the farm and moved to her newly built home in Dundalk.
In Dundalk, Gladys enjoyed her home, family gatherings, gardening, community events, hockey and baseball, senior tours, bingo and her growing family of grandchildren. Gladys lived in her home in Dundalk until March 2004. With failing health she sold her home and in June moved to Dufferin Oaks. She enjoyed her new experience of living at Dufferin Oaks; adjusting well and going to events as her health allowed. She enjoyed the staff there, loved the visits of everyone who came by. As her health failed she was given special attention by Dufferin Oaks and Palliative care. Gladys passed away on April 14, almost reaching the grand age of 91.
Her funeral was held April 18 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk with burial following at Community of Christ Cemetery. The service was officiated by Elder John RICHARDSON and Evangelist Rod McLEAN, a family friend. Eulogies were delivered by Wilda HARDING, Tammy NIXON, Delbert FRANKS and Ken WEATHERALL (Osprey neighbour.) Honourary pallbearers were Orval BRODERICK, Ken WEATHERALL, Bob HARDING, Grant FRASER and Dennis MILLS. Grandsons served as pallbearers, namely: Jeff, Mark, Jeremy, Rob and Scott FRANKS, Paul NIXON, Chris HARDING and Scott HIGGINSON. Granddaughters served as flowerbearers - Wilda HARDING, Tammy NIXON, Gaye FRANKS, Dawn HIGGINSON, Jennifer JOHNSTON, Kristin FRANKS and Jennifer MOODY.
Glen WRIGHT, a family friend, sang "Precious Memories" during the service and "Amazing Grace" at the grave site. Elder Fred BATCHELOR, Gladys' brother, offered the benedictory prayer at the service.
Following the committal service, refreshments were served at the Community of Christ.

In loving memory of my daughter Dixie, December 27, 1989.
To us you were so special
What more is there to say,
Except to wish with all our heart
That you were here today.

Then you Ne'er went away
For thoughts of you are with us
Each and every day.

Predeceased by his parents Ann and Bill KERR, infant son Michael, his sister Pearl COOK, brothers John and Bill KERR, and cousin Bertie ROBINSON, Lloyd will be remembered by many extended family members and Friends.
Lloyd spent his entire business career with Wolverine Tube retiring after 48 years in 1993, as President and Chief Executive Officer. During those years, as he rose through various positions, he made it a priority to know every employee and to greet each one by name. Lloyd also served as president of the Purchasing Agents Association and the Canadian Copper and Brass Development Association as well as Chairman of the Board of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating and the London Industrial Development Board. This self-made man truly left his mark in the business world. Lloyd's leisure passions were golf, baseball and hockey. He also enjoyed a game of gin with his buddies at Tony's or the company of his poker buddies, in Florida. In his younger years, he coached the Wolverine Tube hockey team in the Industrial Hockey League. Later on, he sponsored the Lloyd's Boys championship slo-pitch team and hockey team as well as minor sports in Dorchester. Whenever possible, he was in the stands cheering them on. When he wasn't out golfing himself, he was watching it on T.V. or cheering on the Blue Jays or the Maple Leafs. The family will greet Friends at Forest Lawn Memorial Chapel for visitation on Friday July 29th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. where a celebration of Lloyd's life will be held on Saturday, July 30th at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Victorian Order of Nurses or the charity of your choice. There will be a memory box on display for any favorite memories or acknowledgements that you may want to share.
Dad, they say it's not what you take when you leave, it's what you leave behind. You have left a close and devoted family who will miss you dearly. Give Mom a hug for us.

DUFFY, Mary Christene (née HEENAN)
(December 12, 1930-April 8, 2005)
Died peacefully in the embrace of her family at Tall Pines Long-term Care Centre after a lengthy illness fought with courage. Deeply cherished wife and life partner of Earl DUFFY. Loving and greatly loved mother of Colleen JOHNSTON (Brian), Kevin (Sherry), Paul (Wendy), Karen NEMEZ (Greg), Shawn (Josie) and Neil (Leslie). Devoted grandmother of Melissa, Kylah, Emily, Caitlin, Katherine, Nicole DUFFY, Nicole NEMEZ, Conor, Beth, Madeline, Nelson, Christina, Michael and Carson. Chris was the 9th of 10 children born to Joe and Lily HEENAN of Tottenham, Ontario. She is now re-united in heaven with her parents and her sisters Hilda, Marguerite, Theresa, brother Patrick and two brothers who died in childhood. She will be greatly missed by her sister Cecilia (Jean SOARE) and brothers John and Don (Bernice) and many nieces and nephews. Chris had her early education in Tottenham and Colgan and at the age of 15 proceeded to St. Joseph's Convent School in Toronto. In 1952, Chris obtained her R.N. designation at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. While she was at school in Toronto she met and captured the heart of Earl DUFFY from Nelson, British Columbia. It was the beginning of a great love story. Chris and Earl married in 1954 and spent the next 50 years building a wonderful and rich life together. Chris was a remarkable woman and through the years displayed her immense versatility and talent. She was a skilled antique collector with a keen eye for beauty. She made her mark as an entrepreneur - in 1983 Chris and Earl formed Totson Corporation and developed, patented and marketed a new and better milk container to the Canadian market. Her other passions included music and bridge. However, her greatest passion and joy in life was always her family. She was a partner to Earl in his business career - always there as a sounding board, advisor and confidante. Her devotion and loyalty as a mother and grandmother were unparalleled - her family was always her greatest source of pride. While she lived in the Toronto area for most of her life, she never forgot her small town roots - she was always an authentic and warm person with a genuine interest in other people. She possessed great grace, poise and beauty - grit and determination. She profoundly touched the lives of those who knew her and will be missed more than words can say. She leaves a phenomenal legacy for all of us. Our family takes comfort in having a guardian angel looking out for us. Visitation will be held on Monday, April 11, 2005 from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. at Rod Abrams Funeral Home, #1666 Tottenham Road, Tottenham (905-936-3477) with a Mass of Christian Burial to be held on Tuesday, April 12, 2005 at 11 a.m. at St. James Church in Colgan. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to St. Michael's Hospital Foundation, 30 Bond Street, Toronto, Ontario M5B 1W8, (416) 864-5887. The family wishes to thank the many dedicated healthcare professionals who supported both Chris and Earl in recent years including the staff of St. Michael's Hospital, Bridgepoint Hospital and Tall Pines Long-term Care Centre. Special thanks to Dr. Rachel SHUPAK of St. Mike's who always went the extra mile for Chris.

James Weston JOHNSTON
By Paul ROSBOROUGH, Thursday, June 30, 2005, Page A22
Husband, father, veteran, engineer, leader. Born April 16, 1923, in River Hebert, Nova Scotia Died December 22, 2004, in Kingston, Ontario, of cancer, aged 81.
James Weston JOHNSTON (Wes) was one of seven children. When Wes was three years old, he moved to Newcastle Creek, New Brunswick, where his father worked as the manager in a coal mine.
After the Second World War started, Wes joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 19 and was transferred to 434 Squadron, part of Bomber Command in England, where he flew in Lancaster bombers as a Wireless Air Gunner.
Wes didn't talk very much about his war experiences; however, his flight log was quite lengthy. His entries detail what cities he bombed and when he saw German jets flying up to attack the bombers for the first time. The horrors he must have seen, and the sacrifices that were made to make Canada and the world safe, will never be forgotten.
After the war, Wes graduated from the University of New Brunswick as a civil engineer. In 1951, he rejoined the Royal Canadian Air Force to work in construction engineering and particularly enjoyed his posting to Baden-Soellingen in Germany. Wes left the air force in 1968 and worked for Agriculture Canada until his well-earned retirement in 1983.
Wes met Helen SALIGA- ROSBOROUGH in 1973 and immediately gave unconditional love to her young sons, Danny and Paul. This is extraordinary, given he was caring for four children of his own Don, Mike, Betty and Robin -- from a previous marriage to Joan. Wes and Helen had a special bond that made them inseparable for 30 years. They were married on March 15, 1975, and celebrated daily their renewed life together that included ballroom dancing, walking and cooking -- it was clear they had each found their soul mates.
Wes served in many volunteer positions, particularly after his retirement in 1983. He was always volunteering to drive cancer or dialysis patients to medical treatment, clearing cross-country trails, or serving on executive boards of charities. In Brockville, his service for the United Way and the Volunteer Bureau gave him particular satisfaction. Moreover, he led the effort to build a new home for the Royal Canadian Legion in Westport, and they created an award in his name for his dedication and commitment. But despite all this, he was modest about his accomplishments and never bragged. He just felt it was the right thing to do.
Wes had a warm heart for snakes and insects. He helped Helen get over her fear of dragonflies by letting them land on him and pointing out how beautiful they truly are. Further, at their cottage near Carleton Place, he found a snake that took up residence under a step at the side door. Each time the family visited, he would allow us to handle the garden snake for a short time, but then were told that the snake needed rest and to put it back. For those who did not share his love of his "pet," he would take particular delight in seeing them squirm when he lifted the snake up for a closer look.
In 1998, the doctors discovered that Wes had lymphoma, for which he received chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The cancer resurfaced in 2004 and again he went for chemotherapy, but this terrible disease eventually won out. For the last few months, Helen nursed him around the clock tirelessly, in his own home, which was a comfort to him. He died quietly, with his wife at his side.
Wes has had a big impact on many lives; he was a principle-based leader who led by example. I'd like to honour his memory by passing his love, his sense of duty and his commitment, to our own family, Friends and community. That would make Wes proud.
Paul is Wes's stepson.

Tom PASHBY, Ophthalmologist (1915-2005)
In 1959, appalled by a hockey injury to his son, he campaigned relentlessly for the adoption of protective devices. Today, young players across Canada owe him their health, their eyesight and, in some cases, even their lives
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, August 27, 2005, Page S9
At a Saturday morning hockey game in 1959, 13-year-old defenceman Bill PASHBY was carrying the puck when checked from behind by an opponent. The boy fell awkwardly, striking his bare head on the ice at Leaside Arena in Toronto. He suffered a severe concussion and a broken collarbone; he also swallowed his tongue, and was saved from suffocation by the quick action of a doctor in the stands.
Bill awoke briefly in a speeding ambulance, still dressed in his hockey gear. One of the first to arrive at his bedside at the Hospital for Sick Children was his father, Tom PASHBY, an ophthalmologist on staff.
The young defenceman survived the injury and, today, William T. PASHBY is a partner in the Toronto law office of Borden Ladner Gervais. Yet, the terrible morning during which his eldest son was unconscious so disturbed his father as to change his life. The close call led to a lifelong search for a means to halt such potentially catastrophic injuries. Dr. PASHBY's quest became a campaign and, eventually, a crusade.
Over the years, he overcame hockey's macho posturing, as helmets and visors became as much a part of a player's equipment as skates and a stick. Generations of hockey players, from professionals in the National Hockey League to weekend warriors playing pickup, owe their health, their eyesight and, in some cases, their lives to his unwavering advocacy.
Dr. PASHBY won many awards during his career, including an Order of Canada and induction into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame. He always said his greatest satisfaction came from annual statistics, as helmets and visors prevented young hockey players from losing eyes to high sticks and stray pucks.
Thomas Joseph PASHBY was the son of a butcher who traced his ancestry to Yorkshire. The only child of Norman and Florence PASHBY attended Frankland Public School and Riverdale Collegiate Institute in east-end Toronto. After school and on weekends, he made deliveries by bicycle for his father's butcher shop. The job kept him in shape for hockey, football and baseball, sports in which he participated with more enthusiasm than skill.
At a tea dance at Riverdale, he met Helen CHRISTIE, daughter of the neighbourhood doctor. They would wed in 1941, by which time Dr. PASHBY had graduated with a medical degree from the University of Toronto.
As a squadron leader in the Royal Canadian Air Force, he spent the war years in domestic postings, conducting eye tests while also being involved in recruitment campaigns, according to his son. While in uniform, he became interested in eye injuries and diseases, and that became his specialty in the years following the war.
The Toronto Maple Leafs asked him to treat National Hockey League players, including captain George Armstrong and Tom Johnson of the visiting Montreal Canadiens. The doctor befriended many of his patients.
On most Saturday mornings, he could be found at Leaside Arena, where he coached and managed hockey teams for 40 seasons. In the days when players of every age skated with bare faces and heads, Dr. PASHBY's nimble fingers were often called on to stitch a patient or two at the bench.
He played a similar role at the annual peewee hockey tournament at Quebec City. At one tournament, he bought skates for a child whose parents were too poor to replace his broken pair. The boy went on to an National Hockey League career.
Dr. PASHBY was on duty at the hospital when his son was injured in 1959. He decided he would not allow his boys to play without headgear. "No one wore helmets then," he told the Medical Post in 1999.
"I was doing work with the Toronto Maple Leafs at the time and Bert Olmstead, a left winger, said that you couldn't get any helmets around here that are any good and offered to get me one from Sweden.
"My younger son Bob wore that helmet. At first, he didn't want to go on the ice with it. I said, 'You wear that helmet or you don't play.' Bob PASHBY, who would later join his father as an ophthalmologist, is believed to have been the first player in the Toronto Hockey League to have worn a helmet. The primitive headgear, jokingly called a "white eggshell," is now part of the Hockey Hall of Fame's collection.
While his advocacy now seems so commonsensical as to be inevitable, Dr. PASHBY faced a long battle to change the culture of a sport that regarded the wearing of helmets as a manifestation of sissiness. His son's initial reluctance was shared by other players even as most parents accepted the change. By 1965, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (now Hockey Canada) made the wearing of helmets mandatory.
Dr. PASHBY, meanwhile, worked with the Canadian Standards Association to develop safe and affordable headgear. Over the decades, the doctor's campaigns went from helmets to visors to neck guards. He also argued for an end to checking from behind as well as to checks to the head, a rule change adopted by Hockey Canada three years ago to reduce the number of concussions.
In 1972, on his own initiative, Dr. PASHBY embarked on a survey of all 700 of the nation's ophthalmologists. In the 1974-75 season, before face masks became mandatory, 258 eye injuries were suffered, including 43 blindings. The average age of the victim was 14. "The injuries are shocking, alarming and generally unnecessary," Dr. PASHBY said at the time.
By the 2001-02 season, only four eye injuries were reported, including two blindings.
According to the Canada Safety Council, 311 eyes have been blinded since Dr. PASHBY's first survey in 1972. Not a single one of those was suffered by a player wearing an approved full-face protector.
His untiring dedication to sports safety earned him numerous awards from sporting and medical bodies. As well, the Ontario Women's Hockey Association has named its trainer-of-the-year award after him.
Dr. PASHBY was a long-time teacher in the medical faculty at the University of Toronto, winning the ophthalmology department's Jack Crawford Teaching Award in 1992. (His youngest son won the same award four years later.) He was awarded an honorary degree by the University of Waterloo in 1996.
Dr. PASHBY was named a member of the Order of Canada in 1981. He was inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 2000.
The Toronto hall also provides a permanent home for the Dr. Tom Pashby Sports Safety Award, a trophy honouring "outstanding contributions toward the prevention of catastrophic injuries in sports and recreational activities." The award comes with a $10,000 prize.
Patrick BISHOP, a Waterloo professor and amateur hockey coach, was the inaugural winner last year for his work on impact biomechanics. This year's winner is Karen JOHNSTON, a McGill University neurosurgeon who researches concussions.
Dr. PASHBY retired from medical practice five years ago at 85, although he remained an active crusader until last month.
Tom PASHBY was born on March 23, 1915, in Toronto. He died at his Toronto home on Wednesday. He was 90. He leaves a daughter, two sons, six grandchildren and a great granddaughter. He was predeceased by his wife of 61 years, Helen, who died in 2003. The family has requested that donations be made to the Dr. Tom Pashby Sports Safety Fund, a charity founded in 1990.

BLAKE, Beatrice May
At the age of 95 and in complete peace, May BLAKE passed away on October 19, 2005. May was care-giver extraordinaire to many children who remember her fondly and with love throughout their adulthood. She was trained as a nanny in England and joined her first family as a caregiver as a young teenager, no older than 15. She emigrated to Canada about 1932. Throughout her early years as a nanny in Canada, May befriended and looked out for other British nannies who would come to Toronto on two-year visas to care for the children of Canadian families. May brought them into the community of other nannies, made sure that they became acquainted with Toronto and sent them home again at the end of two years with farewell parties.
The adults for whom she cared as children and that she called "her charges" owe their values of honesty, integrity, generosity towards others and good humour to her teachings as they grew from infancy through childhood into eventual maturity. May was always proud of the achievements of "her charges" and followed their successes in life, sending congratulations their way and still providing advice as they made their path through life.
May has been a staunch supporter of Saint Margaret's Anglican Church for more than 70 years. Up until two years ago, she was a regular supporter of Saint Margaret's annual Christmas bazaar and rummage sales. She was a frequent visitor to the sick and shut-ins of her congregation. May BLAKE's life was a happy and fulfilled one.
May will be fondly remembered by her many Friends at her Church, including Muriel CAESAR, Len and Jean SOUTH, Trevor and Muriel McCONNELL and Jean FRASER.
She will also be lovingly remembered by "her charges" currently living in Canada, Edward BULMAN and his sister Elizabeth, Nadine, Jon and Paul LEVIN, Sean and Kalen McCOWAN, Denise DELLIO, and Alexandra and Laura ROBINSON. Jean SHAWN, George LEVIN, Anna JOHNSTON (formerly McCOWAN), Perry and Rae DELLIO, Michael ROBINSON and Dr. Gail ROBINSON, and all remember the fine and loving care May BLAKE provided for their children and the tremendous contribution she made to their family life.
Those who wish to celebrate May BLAKE's life may join together at Saint Margaret's Anglican Church, 53 Burnaby Boulevard, Toronto on Monday, October 24, 2005 at 1 p.m. May loved children all of her life and donations in her memory to Save the Children Canada, 300-4141 Yonge Street, Toronto M2P 2A8, would be greatly appreciated.

SKUCE, Daniel James
A bright light that touched the lives of so many people around the world has faded. The presence of Dan in all of our lives was both a gift and miracle. Dan's parents, Bessie and Orval, were in their mid-40s when Dan made his entrance on October 26th, 1939. From his birthplace in Ottawa to his passing in Victoria, Dan's journey became what he affectionately called 'The Ride.' During the 40s and 50s, Dan's ride was spent in his neighbourhood of Nepean, playing sports and being doted upon by his much older brothers Eldon and Lloyd. He also shared an admiration for his sister Margaret (JOHNSTON) - his only surviving family member. The nomad in Dan surfaced in the 60s and 70s when he helped start an organization called 'Up With People' and began traveling the world staging shows of peace during times of war. Dan detested violence and war in any form. Dan left Up With People in 1976 to reside in Toronto and start the evolution of what he believed was his most meaningful contribution during his life. Dan and his wife Carla, were blessed with three children, Traci (Jim), Nikki (Facundo) and Ryan (Mili). The incredible love and support Dan provided his children gifted them with the confidence and stability to continue his legacy of love in their own careers and relationships. Dan's family rooted him into the corporate world with contributions in the area of marketing with both Mary Kay and Electrolux. In the mid-80s, during his time as Vice-President of Meetings and Events for Carlson Marketing Group, he met his soul mate and final life partner, Hedy. Their good fortune to be able to work together for the past 20 years took them across the globe, adding to their treasured collection of incredible Friends and spectacular memories. During this time, his love of golf peaked and Dan fulfilled the dream of playing on the Old Course at St. Andrews. The culmination of Dan's ride was the pride he enjoyed as a grandfather to his grand_sons, Seamus and Emile. Priority of family and love for his children and grandchildren is what brought him out to the West Coast to settle in Victoria during these past five years. The legend of Dan SKUCE will live on in all that have played a part in his life. It was Dan's ability to live his life for the moment and his enviable love and enjoyment of life that he will best be remembered for. He sought only the great good and potential in everyone he met and every situation he encountered. Even with his diagnosis of terminal melanoma in January 2004, he never gave into the disease. A number of tributes had been planned for Dan during the month of October that unfortunately did not take place as he prepared for his final exit on Friday, October 21st, 2005. In lieu of a memorial service, Dan would want everyone to celebrate him in their own way. In lieu of flowers, Dan's children have asked for donations to be made to One Sky (www.onesky.ca); the Red Cross through donation of blood; the Victoria Hospice; the British Columbia Cancer Agency or the charity of your choice. Danny Boy...the pipes are calling. The summer 's gone. 'Tis you must go and I must bide. I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me. Daniel James SKUCE...you are loved more than ever and you will be missed dearly. Thank you for sharing the great blessing of your life with us.

Douglas SALMON, Surgeon (1923-2005)
As the first black person in Canada to head a surgical team at a large hospital, he came a long way from being a labourer in a Toronto construction yard
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, October 31, 2005, Page S11
Orphaned, poor and black in Toronto during the Depression, Doug SALMON held steadfastly to a dream. He was going to be a doctor.
Despite a society that did not support his ambition, that's exactly what he did. For 28 years, he performed surgery at Scarborough Centenary Hospital.
The first black surgeon in modern Canadian medical history, while at Centenary he became president of the hospital's medical staff and chief of general surgery, the first black person to do so. He was among the first doctors in Canada to perform gastric bypass surgery.
"He led an exemplary life as a husband, father and grandfather," said his wife, Beverly, a former Metro Toronto and North York councillor. "His patients absolutely loved him."
Born to Jamaican immigrants, he was the youngest of six children. His father, Robert, was a veteran of the Boer War in South Africa at the turn of the last century while his mother was a nurse with the Black Cross. A brainchild of Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican-born champion of black nationalism, it was a local-community version of the Red Cross and may have provided young Doug's early inspiration to become a doctor.
After his parents died, he learned to light furnaces for a penny a piece and worked three paper routes to help provide for himself and his siblings, by then in the care of a widowed aunt. At high school, low expectations for his race saw him channelled into a technical program. Although he graduated at the top of his class, young Doug SALMON could not get a job.
All the while, he had been studying music. His piano teacher at the Royal Conservatory of Music, impressed by the boy's intelligence and desire to learn, pulled strings and found him work at Dominion Bridge, then Canada's construction giant.
He started as outside yard boy. Because he was black, no one would eat lunch with him, except for the son of the company president. His new friend saw ability in the young man and told his father. As a result, Doug SALMON was promoted to inside messenger boy and at the same time attended evening classes at Jarvis Collegiate to obtain his senior matriculation.
Interestingly, he spent other nights in an entirely different role by fronting his own band. In the 1940s, Doug Salmon and his Orchestra provided music in dance halls all over the Toronto region.
Meanwhile, in his day job, he was beginning to put into practice some of the theory he was soaking up at Jarvis. One day, he saw staff gathered around a drawing, struggling to figure out an angle. Using his night-school knowledge, he solved the problem. Suddenly, others at Dominion Bridge saw talent in him, too. After some training, he was given a job as a draftsman with the company. Later, he worked briefly as a manager, and he no doubt sensed real possibilities of advancement, but decided, instead, to go back to school.
He enrolled at the University of Toronto and in 1951 obtained a degree in physiology and biochemistry. He was accepted into medical school, paying his way with help from a scholarship, work as a draftsman, and by landing gigs as Doug Salmon and his Orchestra. All the while maintaining marks that placed him in the upper third of his class. He graduated in 1955.
Well before entering medical school, in 1942, he participated in one of the first major protests against discrimination in Toronto. Because of their colour, one of his Friends, Roy JOHNSTON, and two out-of-town guests had been denied entry to the Palais Royale, a ballroom on the Toronto lakeshore, to hear the black jazz pianist Earl (Fatha) Hines.
At a time when black parents encouraged their children to remain passive in the face of discrimination, Mr. JOHNSTON formed a protest committee. Doug SALMON was among its leaders. Appearing before the police commission, the police chief and mayor Bob SAUNDERS, the committee requested a bylaw to end discrimination in time for an upcoming appearance at the Palais Royale by bandleader Duke Ellington. While the bylaw did not come about, Mr. Ellington appeared instead at the Royal York Hotel, where blacks were allowed.
In February of 1945, Doug SALMON was among those who protested the barring of a black teenager from a Toronto skating rink, joining a couple of hundred others outside the arena. The protest was led this time by Art BELL, who, as a member of a student administration committee at the University of Toronto, was then deeply involved in human rights. "It was a civil-rights protest that was civil," Mr. BELL said. "It wasn't one of those beat'em-up-and-break-the-windows type of protests. We just marched."
By all accounts, it worked. After two nights of picketing and a visit to the mayor, the group had its way. Mr. SAUNDERS dusted off a bylaw from the days of Upper Canada that said innkeepers must provide lodging and refreshment to any traveller who has the means to pay for the service. It was enacted the next day.
Along with Dr. SALMON, other committee members rose to prominence. Mr. JOHNSTON became a trustee of the Toronto Board of Education and Wilson BROOKS became one of Toronto's first black school principals.
In a twist of fate, through his sister, Dr. SALMON met his future wife, Beverly BELL, who also happened to both a nurse and Art BELL's cousin. After marrying in 1956, they moved to Detroit, where Dr. SALMON became a resident in general surgery.
Although offered a practice in Detroit, Dr. SALMON returned home where he and his wife started a family. In 1967, he landed a job at Scarborough Centenary as a member of the general surgical staff. He was the only black surgeon on staff, but not the first black surgeon in Canada. That distinction belonged to another Toronto doctor, Dr. Anderson Ruffin ABBOTT, a man who had graduated from the University of Toronto in 1861, served as a Union Army surgeon during the American Civil War and afterward returned home to be a resident surgeon at Toronto General Hospital, all at a time when anesthesia was in its infancy.
Over the years, Dr. SALMON put in long hours and gained a reputation as a highly skilled practitioner with a caring and compassionate bedside manner who had helped pioneer such techniques as bypass surgery for the morbidly obese. In time, the hospital made him chief of general surgery. As the first black person in the country to head the surgical team at a large hospital, and someone in whose hands lay the power of life and death, he had come a long way from the construction yard at Dominion Bridge.
Dr. SALMON worked at Centenary from 1967 until 1995, and then at the Rudd Clinic in Toronto. He retired in 1997.
He was awarded the Canadian Black Achievement Award for medicine in 1986 and 1994. In his honour, his family has established the Dr. John Douglas Graham Salmon Award for Black Medical Students.
John Douglas Graham SALMON was born on December 13, 1923. He died at home in Toronto on September 21 of vascular dementia. He was 81. One sister, his wife, Beverly, children, Doug Jr., Warren,
Heather and Leslie survive him. Four siblings and one grandchild predeceased him.

'Gentlest' artist shared many gifts
Scholarship to be named in honour of Brad Johnston
Animator killed during family visit to town in B.C.
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
They were best buddies as well as brothers and no one thought anything about it when they decided to head out for a beer and a game of pool after a big Saturday night family dinner in Parksville, British Columbia, a small town 20 minutes up the coast from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.
The JOHNSTON boys used to go there as kids on visits from their home in Pickering and dig for crabs along Qualicum Beach. A quiet corner of paradise for retirees and tourists, it's the last place one would expect a murder to occur.
But Ian and Brad JOHNSTON picked the wrong pub that night.
A few of the locals didn't like the cut of the jib of the two Torontonians in town visiting their 90-year-old grandmother and followed the pair out to the parking lot of the Rec Room Night Club at closing time. Police were called but not in time. Both brothers had been beaten, but Brad JOHNSTON was severely injured. He died two days later, January 10, at Victoria General Hospital. Five men have been charged with manslaughter and one count of assault causing bodily harm.
Brad JOHNSTON was 24, and he had never been in a fight in his life.
"He was the kindest and gentlest kid you'd ever want to meet," said his father, Stuart JOHNSTON. " It's just who he was. I don't think I ever heard him say an unkind word."
"I can't ever remember him getting into trouble with anyone," said Ian JOHNSTON, Brad's older brother by 25 months. "Everybody loved him. He was soft spoken and always living in his imagination."
JOHNSTON was an artist. He left behind a stack of sketchbooks about four feet high at his father's Toronto lakeside condo where he had been living for the past 4 1/2 years. He drew in bars, he drew in restaurants, even on road trips with his buddies. He carried his sketchbook everywhere. One of his last sketches was of his father sitting in Air Canada's Maple Leaf lounge, wine glass in hand, as the family waited for their flight out west.
"In fact, it was the only sketch he ever did of me," said Stuart JOHNSTON.
Brad JOHNSTON drew achingly beautiful life drawings, but he was also a tattoo artist: he created five of the seven mythic tattoos on his brother's left arm and designed the delicate flower around the ankle of his girlfriend Alyssa SODEN. And he was an airbrush artist whose work graced many motorcycle helmets and goalie masks.
A gifted sculptor, he had fashioned a clay horse's head for his father and stepmother Bernadette (they own a horse racing and breeding farm in Orangeville, Ontario), a cat for his mother Sherrie and a candle holder for Ian, for what would turn out to be his last Christmas.
Thoughtful, something of an aesthete, he studied and often pondered life's unknowables. "He was like a prophet and had more faith than anyone I know," his girlfriend wrote in the email telling Friends of his death.
JOHNSTON immersed himself in worlds of his own making. As one of four artists working on an animation series being produced and developed by RM Productions, an animation company based in Mississauga, he was bringing to life futuristic characters and their fantasy worlds. He helped create Defenders of the Scroll, a half-hour action-adventure animation series that comes with the tag line: In some places, you should be afraid of the shadows.
In the case of Demon Chasers, a half-hour sci-fi humour animation series he worked on, the world is Asator and it is described on the website as "a utopia in every sense" except that "as is the case with most utopias, someone had to come along and spoil it."
Right now, both series are strictly in the pitch phase.
"I hope to see the RM projects go into full production for television release," wrote friend and fellow animator Kevin STOTT in an email from Thailand. "It would be a joy to see his work on television."
The two had been classmates at Max The Mutt Animation School in downtown Toronto. School owners Maxine SCHACKER and Tina SEAMAN still remember JOHNSTON at his intake interview five years ago. Tall (6-foot-4) and at 140 pounds so slight he moved with the grace of a smaller man, a flush had spread across the smattering of freckles on his fine-featured face as his mom recalled how he used to draw over the walls at home.
He got in, but he had to work hard. He didn't pass every course the first time round, SCHACKER noted. "He was so quiet, so modest and unassuming," SEAMAN recalled. "There was a nice sensitive line to his line drawings in his final portfolio."
After JOHNSTON graduated in 2003, he supported himself with a few contract animation assignments but also modelling jobs, a couple of stints as an extra in movies and working summers on the harbour cruise ships.
"Some of us used to tell him to borrow some money and open up a tattoo shop, get a practical job," said Graham "Whitey" ADDISON, a bartender. He first met JOHNSTON in Grade 9 at Dunbarton High School in Pickering. ("I don't know why we became Friends. I was rowdy, we were so opposite.")
But JOHNSTON always replied that he would never compromise. "His dream was art," ADDISON said.
An avid video gamer, JOHNSTON was working with some others on the prototype of a new game. "He was like a wizard: he could break down any game from an artist point of view," his brother said. According to Stuart JOHNSTON, he had also been sketching characters for the new work of a British author.
But his special project was a trilogy, an illustrated novel along the lines of Lord of the Rings. He had already devised the storyline and had drawn many of the characters.
Ian JOHNSTON is a chef, but he has promised to complete his brother's trilogy.
"I will finish his story and put it out there," he said. "It shouldn't be sitting in a box when his ideas are so brilliant."
There will be a scholarship in his name at the animation school and a namesake in the red-haired colt born on his father's horse farm a few days after his death. And there is also this, part of a poem he wrote when he got up Christmas morning. "May the spirit of giving live on in you, /even if for no reason./And to those of you now come and gone; /those no longer with us./I'll see you when I get there, until then, /Merry Christmas."

DENT, Dora Elizabeth (née FOLLETT)
February 25, 2005 on Quadra Island, British Columbia in her 90th year. The eldest daughter of the late Joseph V. FOLLETT and Mary Elizabeth FOLLETT (JOHNSTON,) Dora was born in Calgary on May 19, 1915. One of four children, she was educated in Calgary, attended Mount Royal College before moving to the University of Toronto from which she graduated with a B.A. in 1939. In 1943, she married Albert Edward DENT (Bert) and together they enjoyed a wonderful 50 years until his death in 1993. They lived in Toronto, Deep River, and finally Port Hope, Ontario. Predeceased by one brother, Bert and her sister Emily, she is survived by her brother, Dr. A.V. FOLLETT (Marg) of Calgary, Alberta. Left to mourn her passing are son Peter (Dorothy HARVEY) of Galiano Island, British Columbia, daughter Judy ODELL (Jim MOATS) of Quadra Island, British Columbia, grandchildren Elizabeth and Geordie DENT, Liam and Alex ODELL, and great grandchildren Greyson and Sophia HARPER. Dora's passion was music. As a young girl she won many festivals and sang in numerous recitals in Calgary. During her university days, she earned money as a paid soloist in Toronto. After taking time off to raise her family, she returned to university in 1960-62 and qualified as a music teacher. For many years she was a music specialist servicing the elementary schools in Port Hope. She sang in the senior choir of Port Hope United Church as well as directing the Boys Choir. After her working life ended, she continued to support musical and community endeavours, both as a founding member of the Friends of Music and the Probus Club. When she retired she and Bert enjoyed many fine years and trips together. After his death, she continued to travel: to Africa, Australia and New Zealand, China, the Caribbean and the Czech Republic. Several of these trips were taken with her children. She continued to make regular visits to England, maintaining close relationships with Bert's family. In 2001, she fulfilled a life-long dream by visiting Newfoundland, the birthplace of her father. Last year, on her own initiative, she decided to leave Port Hope and move to the British Columbia Coast to be closer to her children. She chose to live in a retirement home in Victoria but failing health mandated a move to her daughter's home. In her words, "My get up and go got up and went." Her legacy is in the number of former students who say with pride, "Mrs. Dent taught me music!" and in both her children who have pursued careers in music. A celebration of life concert will be held in Port Hope on May 19, 2005. If you wish to honour her memory, please write letters in support of music programs in the schools, donate to a charity of your choice, and raise a glass of her favourite Crown Royal in celebration of a life well and fully lived.

He helped bring CanLit to the world
Gordon ROPER sneaked books on to curriculum
Group of Friends read to professor who went blind
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Gathered around Mollie CARTMELL's kitchen table in Peterborough are the chair, associate chair and past chair of Trent University's department of English, talking about the man who has meant the world to them and who helped bring the world the study and appreciation of Canadian literature.
Prof. Gordon ROPER had been teaching at the University of Toronto's Trinity College some 45 years ago when he found a circuitous if not somewhat duplicitous way to slip the study of home-grown Canadian novels into Trinity's previously wholly Anglophile curriculum.
These three -- and many, many others in academia -- are the products of that subterfuge, a generation of scholars and former students who proudly and wryly describe themselves as "Roperized."
They were also the core of a group called Roper's Readers, eight people who read to the 93-year-old at a set time each week, because ROPER had become blind about 25 years ago and because, they all said, ROPER was simply wonderful company.
"He made it always a pleasure, an unalloyed pleasure," said James NEUFELD, chair of Trent's department of English literature. "You'd knock at the door of Applewood (the retirement home where ROPER lived until he died in his sleep on February 20) and he would leap up, stride to the door, thrust his hand out. 'James, so good to see you.' Why wouldn't you go?"
"When he talked to you, he wasn't a blind old man," said CARTMELL, a retired high school teacher who met ROPER 15 years ago while writing a history of the local Young Men's Christian Association. She read him newsmagazines and papers Friday evenings, and treasured his conversation and commentary. "He turned me on to The New Yorker magazine, for which I will be eternally grateful."
The group started in earnest and on a schedule in 1997, after the death of ROPER's beloved wife, Helen. ROPER fell into a deep despair, a shocking revelation for NEUFELD, who had idolized ROPER since he took an English course from him his first year at Trinity College. It was NEUFELD who called Gordon JOHNSTON, associate chair of the English literature department and also a former Trinity student of ROPER's, as well as Mike PETERMAN, past department chair and currently a visiting scholar at Princeton in Canadian studies, and suggested they set up a regular timetable for visiting and reading. Others soon joined, including Peterborough Mayor Sylvia SUTHERLAND.
Tuesdays were NEUFELD's time; Mondays, JOHNSTON read poetry with him; Thursdays, PETERMAN and ROPER often read and discussed PETERMAN's current writing: "It was a special bond and terrific for me. I could hear myself making headway or getting caught. He would make suggestions; he was my best reader."
The last time they were together PETERMAN read from Leaven of Malice, a book by Robertson DAVIES that he's been teaching in his Princeton course on Canadian literature. DAVIES was one of ROPER's oldest and fastest Friends. "I said to him that I thought the novel held up well -- that it was bracing and funny -- and he was thrilled."
And that was ROPER's secret. He was the gentlest of critics he valued literature, studying it with a rigorous intellect but also with a genuine and generous affection. He made neither waves nor academic headlines; his scholarly output was small by some standards, but careful and precise, and always illuminating. Gabrielle Roy said his introduction to her classic novel Where Nests the Water Hen was the best critical piece on her work she'd ever read. Initially a student of American literature who was fascinated by Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Samuel Clemens, ROPER wrote an introduction to Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter because when he began teaching in 1948 there was no text available of this work for university study.
He was chair of English at Trinity College, a member of the graduate faculty at the university, a senior founder of Massey College and responsible as Senior Fellow Emeritus for developing the Massey College library, later renamed the Robertson Davies library. Northrop Frye and E.J. Pratt were his Friends. Governor General Adrienne CLARKSON was a student who phoned his nursing home last year when Peterborough was flooded to make sure ROPER was all right.
"Our class was small -- about 10 of us -- clustered around a table beneath the mullioned windows under the eaves. But as a result, years later, I never hear the word 'ambergris' (a waxy substance secreted by sperm Wales that's added to perfume) without thinking about Dr. ROPER explaining the elaborate metaphor of Ishmael's world," she wrote from Rideau Hall when she learned of ROPER's death. "He taught me not only literature, but also the meaning of caring about literature."
ROPER's greatness was displayed in the classroom. "He could give a whole lecture on the words 'Call me Ishmael,' said JOHNSTON. ROPER was a high-school dropout; he often joked it was the basis of his Friendship with Robertson DAVIES, also a doctor of letters without a high-school diploma. They met at a meeting at Peterborough's Y, when ROPER, from the back of the room, tossed off one of his trademark puns. ROPER took out his first library book when he was eight. When he was in Grade 10, the head librarian at Peterborough's library gave him the keys to the basement stacks because he was spending so much time there instead of across the street at Peterborough Collegiate Institute.
Nevertheless, ROPER attained his PhD in American literature in 1944 from the University of Chicago and was teaching there when he received the offer from Trinity College. At the time, ROPER had to work hard to obtain permission to teach a course on American literature, but by the early 1960s he'd manage to slip in two Canadian volumes at the end of that course. "It was a toehold," said NEUFELD, but not enough for ROPER, who hatched a plot with a colleague in the divinity school to devise a course of Canadian content he called "Spiritual Issues in Literature."
"That's how he got Canadian literature on to the syllabus," said NEUFELD. "It was one of the best courses I ever took. I taught CanLit at Trent on the basis of that course."
JOHNSTON remembered how ROPER smuggled Margaret Laurence -- another friend -- on to campus to address a class just after she had written The Stone Angel, one of a generation of Canadian books that jump-started the entire CanLit industry. In 1969, ROPER returned to Peterborough to teach at the fledgling Trent University. He was back in the classroom, where he was happiest, and he was closer to the family cottage on Roper Island on Stoney Lake where he and Helen spent summers with their children, Mark and Susan.
Later he suffered a colostomy, angina and blindness, but he remained upbeat and busy. When Roper's Readers decided to honour their friend last fall at the annual Rooke Reading Series by inviting the public to hear them read to him -- "and get a taste of our pleasure in doing it," as CARTMELL put it -- ROPER started making a suggestion, here, then there.
"He started to choreograph it," said JOHNSTON, with a laugh. One of his suggestions was that they read from the works of a local nature writer. It was a good one, they all agreed. "He always had in mind what he thought would be good for the community to hear."

DUFFY, M. Christene (née HEENAN) (December 12, 1930-April 8, Died peacefully in the embrace of her family at Tall Pines Long-Term Care Centre after a lengthy illness fought with courage.

Devoted grandmother of Melissa, Kylah, Emily, Caitlin, Katherine, Nicole DUFFY, Nicole NEMEZ, Conor, Beth, Madeline, Nelson, Christina, Michael and Carson.

She is now reunited in Heaven with her parents and her sisters Hilda, Marguerite, Theresa, brother Patrick and two brothers who died in childhood. She will be greatly missed by her sister Cecilia (Jean SOARE) and brothers John and Don (Bernice) and many nieces and nephews. Chris had her early education in Tottenham and Colgan and at the age of 15 proceeded to St. Joseph's Convent School in Toronto. In 1952, Chris obtained her R.N. designation at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. While she was at school in Toronto, she met and captured the heart of Earl DUFFY from Nelson, British Columbia. It was the beginning of a great love story. Chris and Earl married in 1954 and spent the next 50 years building a wonderful and rich life together. Chris was a remarkable woman and through the years displayed her immense versatility and talent. She was a skilled antique collector with a keen eye for beauty. She made her mark as an entrepreneur; in 1983 Chris and Earl formed Totson Corporation and developed, patented and marketed a new and better milk container to the Canadian market. Her other passions included music and bridge. However, her greatest passion and joy in life was always her family. She was a partner to Earl in his business career - always there as a sounding board, advisor and confidante. Her devotion and loyalty as a mother and grandmother were unparalleled, her family was always her greatest source of pride. While she lived in the Toronto area for most of her life, she never forgot her small town roots - she was always an authentic and warm person with a genuine interest in other people. She possessed great grace, poise and beauty - grit and determination. She profoundly touched the lives of those who knew her and will be missed more than words can say. She leaves a phenomenal legacy for all of us. Our family takes comfort in having a guardian angel looking out for us.

Dorothy THOMAS stormed city hall
One of reformer group elected to council in 1972
She started poop and scoop program in Toronto
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Once upon a time, when Toronto was younger and believed in itself much, much more, a group of urban idealists stormed city hall. They called themselves reformers and they got into the council chamber by getting themselves elected. David CROMBIE was their leader, a man dubbed Toronto's "tiny perfect mayor" by the media of the day, and great things were expected and sometimes even delivered.
Now, these reformers were feisty and forward-thinking -- they were people like the late Colin VAUGHAN, an architect turned activist, lawyers Dale MARTIN and Karl JAFFARY, renegade thinker John SEWELL. And three of the newly minted aldermen -- for that was the job title of councillor in those days -- were women.
But only two -- Anne JOHNSTON and Dorothy THOMAS -- made it through the first term of office. JOHNSTON, who retired from municipal politics at the time of the last election, says that was only because they learned to be tough and because they had each other.
"I met her December 4, 1972, the night we were all elected. There was a spontaneous gathering of all the reformers at city hall and I remember Dorothy was wearing a hat and she came up to me and said: 'You and I are going to be Friends,'" she said.
They were a gang of citizen politicians who believed they were going to create a livable, even lovable city, but THOMAS was right about at least one thing that night: she and JOHNSTON were Friends until May 9 this year, when THOMAS died of cancer at Dorothy MIKOS was the proud daughter of very proud Hungarians. Her father, a tailor, and her mother, a talented seamstress, came to Canada in the 1930s. Theirs was the classic immigrant story, according to THOMAS's only child, Nye THOMAS, a lawyer and policy director of the Ipperwash provincial inquiry. His grandparents worked hard in Spadina Ave. sweatshops so their children would never have to and were thrilled when their daughter went to the University of Toronto.
THOMAS discovered journalism there -- it was the heyday of the varsity press -- as well as Ralph THOMAS, another journalist who would become a well-known Canadian filmmaker. Now living in California, he is best known here for Ticket To Heaven and The Terry Fox Story. Dorothy THOMAS left university before she graduated to work at the Toronto Star, where she was an arts reporter under the watch of the legendary entertainment editor Nathan COHEN.
She was a stay-at-home mom living in a fourplex on Wineva Ave. in the Beach when she joined up with a group of residents to successfully fight the construction of the Scarborough Expressway, which would have cut right through her neighbourhood.
THOMAS served two terms on Toronto council, from 1972 to 1976 and from 1981 to 1985, representing the old Ward 9 until ousted by a tag team of Paul CHRISTIE and Tom JAKOBEK. She had been one of the founders of the City of Toronto's Person's Day Award and had headed the Mayor's Task Force on the Status of Women.
"She was an excellent politician," said Barbara CAPLAN, a former Toronto city clerk. "She could build consensus across political ties."
JOHNSTON said her friend initiated Toronto's poop and scoop program, an achievement not among those noted on the condolence motion passed by council 10 days after THOMAS died, but not without its significance.
"She owned the public works committee," said JOHNSTON. " She was always the chair. She liked it because it was working on neighbour stuff."
Attractive and articulate, THOMAS was also blunt. "There was no filter with her, ever," her son said.
She made headlines when she and Alderman Dale MARTIN visited Calgary in 1985 for the 48th annual convention of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. "The whole of downtown Calgary shows an amazing lack of planning," she said. Ralph KLEIN was the mayor then and he summoned photographers to record him standing in front of Calgary City Hall wearing boxing gloves and dissing the smug politicians from the East.
THOMAS didn't back down. "It's very ugly in Calgary," she told the Star. "It even makes (Metro planners) look good."
By then a single mom working punishing hours, THOMAS still made a point of being home every night to have dinner with her son. When she quit politics the first time, it was to spend time with Nye. When she left municipal politics for good, she moved to Euclid Ave. and got a job heading and helping clean up the Metro Licensing Commission, serving on the subsequent Toronto Licensing Tribunal until 2003.
A spectacular cook and a stylish hostess, she was often asked to donate her talents to fundraising events. A dinner party for four catered by Dorothy THOMAS was always a hot ticket at silent and not-so-silent auctions for the New Democratic Party. She was generous with her money as well as time, donating to 60 charities, including the Canadian Marmot Foundation (because she thought no one else would, her son said).
Her dinner table was a natural gathering place for Friends and their families. For 10 years she met one Wednesday night every other month with a group of powerful women such as June CALLWOOD, Doris ANDERSON and Sylvia OSTRY, and for twice as long as that, she was part of a poker player gang of Friends that included fellow activist Ethel TEITELBAUM, who often travelled with THOMAS.
"She was a complicated woman who attacked a lot of people who loved her. But we hung in there because she was loyal and wonderful company -- witty, generous. I always thought she was beautiful," said TEITELBAUM.
Last fall they had travelled to Sicily, one of THOMAS's must-see destinations. "We had a ball," said TEITELBAUM.
But THOMAS, who disliked doctors, was in pain and in fact had been suffering for some time. When she was finally diagnosed with cancer at Christmas, it was too late. THOMAS was admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital, where she had hundreds of visitors. "They said they had never seen anything like it," said CAPLAN, who was soon sending out regular emails about THOMAS to 125 recipients.
In recent years, THOMAS had moved to Port Hope and had been immersed in developing the Port Hope Ecology Garden.
THOMAS never got home again: she spent 17 weeks in hospital, latterly at the Toronto Grace where she celebrated her 67th birthday with Friends. She wasn't in pain, but she was unable to read or watch much television, and every morning she would wake up and be angry that she was still around. "She wanted to leave the arena," CAPLAN said.
She insisted both Nye and his wife, Karen, go to China on a long-awaited trip to bring home Mei Leigh, their adopted daughter and her first grandchild. She died two days after they left Canada.
Her many Friends are gathering tonight at 7 p.m. at the Gladstone Hotel for her memorial. There will be good food, wine, Friends reuniting, laughter and only four speeches. Her son says it is where and how she would have wanted it.
