LAWRIE, Hazel Jean Dove (1915-2005)
Hazel Jean Dove LAWRIE, George and Mary Odell's youngest of four, passed in her sleep on Friday morning, October 21st, in her ninetyfirst year. Her leaving was as her life, peaceful and gracious. Hazel was born in Toronto where in 1938 she married her high school sweetheart from Runnymede Collegiate, Jim LAWRIE. It was just before the outbreak of World War 2, and a year later, soon after having their first son, Jim Jr.; Hazel was alone while her husband defended Canada as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy in the North Atlantic. Those were lonely years, living with her parents on Baby Point Crescent, raising a child and working at Loblaws. With Jim Sr.'s return following the war, the family grew adding sons, Robert and Michael, and moved to their first real home on Prince Edward Drive. Nearly a decade followed in Islington Heights, where Hazel made a loving home, even while returning to her desk at Loblaws. Ever the dedicated wife, Hazel moved to Spragge, in Northern Ontario, in 1958, when Jim Sr. began his transport business. For the uptown girl, the move was challenging, leaving behind her many Friends; brothers, George and Jack; and beloved sister, Marjorie; and their growing families. But Spragge was a short, two-year stay, and the family soon moved to Mississauga, to a new life and residence - with summers on Lake Joseph and winters in Naples, Florida. After Jim passed in 1987, Hazel continued living on her own, eventually moving to Cambridge where she lived independently but relying on the continuing support of Michael and Louise and their dedicated children. Throughout her life Hazel personified gentleness. She was the rock supporting all of her family with unconditional love, and an occasional bit of spot-on guidance. To the very end she was beautiful and dignified, always inspiring her family, always calm. The last five years were especially happy as Hazel continued to draw family and welcome Friends to her gracious hospitality in her home in Cambridge and to Hawk Ridge, the family cottage on Lake Joseph. Always foremost to her family, she became the Matriarch, radiating love, wisdom, and her particular brand of good humour - one line zingers - never at anyone's expense, but always very funny. Hazel's family cherished her, and already miss her: Jim, his wife, Emily; and his three daughters, Heather, Michelle and Jennifer; and their mother, Sondra LAWRIE; Robert, and his partner, Judy MAUS; and his daughters, Katherine, and partner, Paul MALCOLM; Robyn RUTLEDGE, and husband, Rob; and Katherine and Robyn's mom, Lynne LAWRIE and Dr. Michael, and his wife, Louise; and their three children, Jamie, Jillian and Cameron. Jillian became especially close to Hazel during the last many months when she took over the joyful yet challenging role of being her Nana's primary caregiver. Others whom Hazel smiles down on include her nephews George, John, and Bill ODELL; Donald, Doug and David BLENKARN; nephew David LAKE nieces Mary BLENKARN, Jacquie JONES, and Andrea BRENNAN (ODELL) niece Susan PINCO (Doug) and their daughters Jacquie and Melissa cousins Ruth ODELL and Theresa ODELL; Judy's children, John and Trina; Emily's children, Brenda, Mark and Alan; and all the spouses, partners and families of these centering spirits. Friends and family may visit on Tuesday evening from 6: 00 to 8:30 p.m. at Turner and Porter 'Peel' Chapel, 2180 Hurontario Street (Hwy 10, north of Queen Elizabeth Way). Hazel's Memorial Service, a celebration of her life, will be held at 2: 00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26, again at Turner and Porter. Following the service, the family invites all to join them at the Mississauga Club, 1725 Mississauga Road (north of Queen Elizabeth Way) from 4: 00 to 6:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Hazel's memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

VANDUZER, The Honourable Mr. Justice John Elston
Nov. 8, 2005 If ever there lived a modern-day chevalier, that man was John Elston VANDUZER. Born October 14, 1927 in Winona, south of Hamilton, John was raised with his brother Dick on the family fruit farm but felt destined to be a city gentleman. After completing his secondary education in Hamilton, John did his B.A. at McMaster University (1950) before attending Osgoode Hall. After articling with Fraser and Beatty, he entered into private practice in Hamilton, but found his real calling when he was appointed to the Family Court, in 1966. John's professional life was a memorable succession of selfless initiatives: he co-founded the Unified Family Court in 1976, was the first Canadian President of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, set up the Dawn Patrol Group Home to aid troubled youth, was an Elder and Sunday School Teacher at St. Giles' United Church, served on the Committee for Citizens of Distinction and as President of the Hamilton Community Concert. John was a tireless advocate for families and a leading member of his community. In recognition of this, he was awarded an Honourary Doctorate of Laws by McMaster University in 2003.
Above all, John treasured his family. He was blessed with two wonderful marriages: the first to Betty ANDERSON, whom he met in Latin class at McMaster and married in 1955 and with whom he had three children, Tony (Jodie KARPF,) Peter (Kathy HALLIDAY,) and Sarah (John HELSTON.) After Betty's death in 1984, John entered into a joyous union with Joan WANSBROUGH (née LAWSON) in 1985 and found himself a delighted stepfather to Michael (Liane BEAM,) Connie (Eric LOWY) and Gwyn (Andres DUSSAN.) He was an adored Grandpa to Taylor, Eli, Anders, Mac, Simone, Claire, Melissa, Kaitlin, Diego and Daniela.
A master storyteller, dapper dresser and consummate host, John enjoyed life to the full. With Joan he travelled the world, enjoyed the arts, entertained his wide circle of dear Friends, and reveled in the beauty of their cottage on Peninsula Lake, and their farm at Mansfield.
The best summary of John's life comes from his granddaughter, Simone. When in 2002 John retired from the bench and was feted during his last day in court, in full regalia and with many testimonials to his skills in jurisprudence and mediation, four-year-old Simone looked up at her Uncle Peter and, in an awestruck voice, asked "Is Grandpa a hero?" Yes, Simone, John Elston VANDUZER was a hero.
There will be a Celebration and Tribute to John at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club, 232 Golf Links Road, Ancaster, on Sunday, November 13th, 2005, from 12: 00-3:00 p.m. John would love all his Friends and family to be there.
Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the John E. VanDuzer Scholarship Fund through the Hamilton Community Foundation, 120 King St. W., Suite 700, Hamilton, L8C 4V2.

It is with great sorrow that we share the news of the sudden passing of Kenneth LAWSON on Thursday, November 24, 2005.

Ken led by example. He was a natural athlete and took great pride in his athletic achievements. He was a passionate learner graduating from both the University of Toronto and Harvard Business School. He was a visionary in the Canadian travel industry and travelled to over 125 countries in the course of his long career.
Ken's deep spirituality and sense of human worth were demonstrated by his legacy of caring for those less privileged. Ken was a valued contributor to his church, Kingsway Lambton United, and in particular the Outreach Committee.
He will be profoundly missed because he touched so many hearts with his compassion, zest for life and winning spirit. You never wondered what Ken was thinking; he taught us that you "play it where it lies". He lived his life true to his Albertan and Danish roots. All who knew him celebrate his life. He is safely home.
Friends may call on Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, at Windermere, just east of the Jane Subway. A Celebration of Ken's life will be held at the Kingsway Lambton United Church, 85 The Kingsway (at Prince Edward), on Wednesday, November 30, 2005 at 2 p.m. If desired, remembrances may be made to the Outreach Committee, c/o Kingsway Lambton United Church.

Watch, don't run, riders told
Toronto Transit Commission, police launch safety drive for motorists, pedestrians
Woman, 27, struck and killed by car while running for a bus
By Sikander Z. HASHMI and Hilda HOY, Staff Reporters
Take the time to check.
Tragically, that message -- part of a safety drive by Toronto police and the Toronto Transit Commission this week -- came too late for a young woman struck and killed in Scarborough just hours before the launch of the campaign.
Bonnie HO, 26, was rushing to catch her bus just before 7 a.m. yesterday. She reportedly ran against a red light from the southeast corner of Steeles and Kelvin Grove Aves., near her home, and was hit by a taxi.
Suffering massive head injuries, HO was rushed to Sunnybrook hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
In a one-week campaign aimed at preventing such accidents, officers are paying particular attention to infractions by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians that impede transit, especially around bus and streetcar stops, high-occupancy vehicle lanes and Wheel Trans vehicles.
Toronto police Sgt. Tony LAWSON advises pedestrians to stay alert and be cautious when stepping on to roads.
"Most fatalities involving pedestrians occur on the roadway, not on sidewalks," he points out. "It's usually the pedestrian rushing to something."
Most of the time, streetcar commuters have to step on to the roadway when hopping on or off the Toronto Transit Commission. One person a month is struck while leaving a streetcar, according to Const. Barb RYAN of the traffic safety program. But it's a wonder the rate is that low, considering how many motorists don't bother to stop behind open streetcar doors as the law requires.
"Toronto Transit Commission operators, themselves, report up to 80 incidents a day where motor vehicles pass the open doors of a streetcar, I guess in an attempt to race by," RYAN says. "Those could all end up in injuries or a calamity of some description."
That's the reason the campaign is emphasizing streetcar safety, she says, "because of the fact that they're not curbside."
At least one streetcar rider thinks that should be changed.
"It'd be nice to have (the streetcars) on the other side of the street," says Vanessa LEE, 26.
witnessing one rider being hit by a car was enough to persuade Umar TURNER to make a habit to check not once, but twice, when getting off a streetcar.
"I was right behind this lady," recalls the 26-year-old, "and she stepped off. I guess she didn't really look and a car came by and hit her.
"Because of that, every time I get off the streetcar, I always make sure to double-check."
TURNER says he often sees the streetcar stop and cars speed by.
Lee ZASLOFSKY, 60, has also witnessed cars whizzing by open streetcar doors but hasn't seen anyone get hit. He welcomes the awareness campaign, saying drivers need a reminder to be careful.
"I'm glad the police are doing this," he said while waiting for a streetcar at the corner of Yonge and Queen Sts.
"The people getting off are completely innocent. They may be a little careless, but the penalty could be death, whereas the guy in the car has a lifetime of guilt."
RYAN urges commuters to just take a moment to make sure they're not stepping directly into the path of an oncoming car. "Take that extra second... to check before you're going to jump into a live lane of traffic."
She has a piece of advice for drivers as well: "If you're a motorist... give them an extra second, because lots of times, people change their minds. They're on, then they want to get off, and the Toronto Transit Commission vehicle may have to come to a sudden stop."
Lisa TAILOR/TAYLOR, who was waiting for the Queen streetcar yesterday, recently saw a man nearly hit by a car as he was leaving the streetcar.
"The drivers here in Toronto... are very erratic," says TAILOR/TAYLOR, 33. "They don't look where they're going."
If the risk to innocent pedestrians isn't enough to convince motorists to be more careful, the penalty for being careless should. Passing an open streetcar door can set you back at least $110, plus three demerit points.
