In loving memory of a dear mother and friend, Georgina (Jean) MASON, who passed away 5 years ago, February 25, 2000.
Please, God, put your arms around her,
And give her special care,
Make up for all the hard times,
And all that was unfair,
Find the softest pillow,
To rest her head upon,
Put a kiss upon her cheek,
And tell her who it's from.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
So you who have a mother,
Cherish her with care,
For you'll never know the heartache,
Til you see her vacant chair.
We miss you and love you so much, Gary, Bryan, Ernie, Ada, Buck and Phyllis.

MASON, Patricia (DOUGHTY) (April 17th, 1921-December 15th, 2004)
Know that we love you, And still do today, Know how much we miss you, And in our hearts you will stay, They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time nor reason, Helps the emptiness we feel, Each morning when we wake, We know that you are gone, No one knows the heartache, As we try to carry on, The special years will not return, When we were all together, But like the love within our hearts You will be part of us forever. Remembered with love and sadly missed by husband Bill, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

MOUNTFORD, Gertrude " Trudy" (née MASON)
Died peacefully on January 10, 2005 surrounded by her family. Trudy, loving wife of the late Albert Walter MOUNTFORD, Mother of 3 sons, Ron (Helen), Brian (Sam) and Bob (Maureen), Grandmother to Sheri (Graeme), Kristine (Joel), Jacquie, Michael, Paula, Ashley and Great Grandmother of Kyle and Kevin. Born in England in 1913, Trudy (née MASON,) came to Canada during the beginning of the 1st World War and grew up in Thunder Bay. Sadly her father died during the first year of this war, and eventually her mother remarried. In 1939, during the cold of January 18th, she married her lifelong husband, Albert (Monty). Several years later, she and her growing family moved to the tiny remote village of Hudson, Ontario. While Trudy and Monty loved the north, his career successes led them to relocate to Moore Park in Toronto. After 13 years, the family moved one more time to Burlington, Ontario. Following Monty's death, she lived independently for 22 years until at the age of 86, Trudy then moved to the Tyndall Retirement/ Nursing home in Mississauga. Her sons will always remember her strength, unyielding support and limitless patience. Her daughters-in-law will remember her fondness for song, that she once liked to dance, her adoration of her sons, and the reasons that these sons won't eat vegetables. Trudy could be counted on for a smile when you entered the room, and a tear on her cheek when you left. She often spoke lovingly of her mother, her brother John, and her husband, while happily taking us down memory lane to places and activities that she enjoyed while growing up. Curling and bowling were some of her earlier favourites, until debilitating arthritis robbed her of her reliable forward arm. She and Monty loved to travel, and ventured often to Florida or Mexico, long before airlines made these destinations a norm. They were often the first to purchase new technologies and inventions, such as one of Hudson's first flush toilets, one of the first to have colour television and always on the leading edge of boats and motors at the cottage. This brought neighbours and Friends for an appreciative visit, and our mother was always pleased to receive them. In addition to her unrelenting focus on her family, Trudy had been a long-standing member and supporter of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire throughout most of her adult life. A memorial service will be held in her honour at Morningside/High Park Presbyterian Church, 4 Morningside Ave. Bloor West Village, Toronto, on Saturday, January 15 at 1: 00 p.m. Donations in lieu of flowers should be sent to Orbis Canada, 880 Wellington Street, Suite 500, Ottawa, Ontario, K1R 6K7. This agency saves and restores sight worldwide in the poorest of countries.

Ronald MASON
By Rob MASON, Friday, March 25, 2005, Page A16
Art gallery owner, baker, landscaper, father. Born July 20, 1928, in Orangeville, Ontario Died January 28, in Toronto, of a heart attack, aged 76.
The pivotal moment in my father's life came in 1969 when he accepted an invitation to move to Saint John's, Newfoundland., to work for the art gallery at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Prior to that time he had worked in Montreal for several years, first in the construction of the Canadian Pavilion for Expo 67, and later as an assistant in the pavilion's art gallery. My father never aspired to have a career in the arts and had no formal education in that area. Nonetheless, in 1969 he moved his wife and three children (I, the fourth child, would be born in 1971) to a small university-owned house in foggy Saint John's.
After four years of learning his trade in the university gallery, my father opened his own gallery in 1973 in Saint John's. Although Gallery Mason operated for only six years, it and my father left an indelible mark on the city and a community of Newfoundland artists. He exhibited works from dozens of (then) relatively unknown painters and helped to keep many of them afloat. There are stories of my father driving for hours to small coastal towns to deliver food to impoverished artists and their families. My father came in contact with a variety of celebrities through his gallery, including premiers, Chief Executive Officers and entertainers. On one occasion, my father brought Peter Gzowski home to supper: He was in Saint John's to tape his radio show This Country in the Morning.
When Gallery Mason closed in 1980, my father searched for a new challenge. In 1981, he joined the oil-drilling industry just beginning to flourish off the coast of Newfoundland. Although he had never previously been on the sea, for almost 10 years my father worked in increasingly senior positions -- baker, cook, chief steward -- on oil drilling ships and platforms around the world, including in the Beaufort Sea and off the coasts of Senegal and Ghana. He would often be gone for several months at a time. Life on the ocean was not easy. I know my father battled countless hours of seasickness and, in 1982, he was dealt a blow when the Ocean Ranger platform disappeared into the Atlantic Ocean with all 84 souls onboard, many of whom he knew well.
Eventually my father became too old for life on the oil rigs and in 1988 he decided to move to Toronto to begin a landscaping company. My father did not have any background in landscaping. Nonetheless, after a couple of back-breaking summers as part of other people's crews, my father managed to start his own landscaping business while also working at Sheridan Nurseries in North Toronto, where he stayed for 10 years. I've been told that customers loved my father and would seek him out -- for his knowledge of plants and flowers, for his grasp of world affairs and art, and for his sense of humour.
After my father's death, my sister Moya created a website in his honour (http: //www.moyak.com/ron). Dozens of messages have been posted on the website about our father, many by people who knew him long ago. One of our favourite letters is from Peter BELL, the great painter who now lives in Scotland and who, in 1969, changed our family's destiny by persuading my father to join him at the university gallery in Newfoundland. Mr. BELL wrote that my father "had a broad, capacious battery of virtues rarely found in one individual. In the years we worked together I never once experienced anger in him... He was no angel, but he would probably put most of them to shame... If it is appropriate to cheer for the passing of one who made the most of his life from day to day, then, with due respect, maybe we should cheer now, too."
Rob is the youngest of Ronald's children.

Her husband, children, their spouses and her ten grandchildren will forever miss her. We all owe her so much for her unwavering devotion, advice and guidance throughout our lives.

Born in 1922 and raised in Buckingham, Quebec, he attended Bishops College School and McGill University. In 1951, he and his brother Bob purchased Hanson Mills Ltd. He thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of business and providing employment to hundreds of people during his life was an accomplishment of which he was most proud.
He married Lamar McCAW in 1950 and they had a wonderful life together. They took great pleasure in each other's company and respected each other's qualities. Jim believed life was intended to be fun. He loved to laugh and entertain people. He found nothing more enjoyable than a good discussion or a well told joke. He was a sought after storyteller, an accomplished singer, fisherman, dancer and golfer. A distinguished man and dapper dresser, he was easily spotted in his bowler hat. His passion, energy and competitive spirit were a positive influence on everyone around him. Although he always credited our mother for raising the children, he set an example and a standard that we will always strive to emulate. He is survived by his children: Michael (Linda), Lamar MASON (Gerry), Wallace (Margot), Ann (Jean Paul), Matthew (Sigrid) and his eleven grandchildren.

In 2002 Naomi and Daniel returned to Vancouver, where Naomi worked with Arts Umbrella where she was instrumental in the establishment of the endowment fund in honor of Carol Henriquez.
Naomi was also active in the community, as a board member of the Jewish Family Service Agency of Vancouver and co-chair of its 'Innovators Lunch' held in April 2004, and co-chair of the Ben Gurion Society and of the Family Day of the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver.
Family and Friends were central to Naomi's life. She had the ability to touch each of them all of the time. Her children bear the indelible stamp of her love. She will be missed and remembered by many.

He trained at Royal Roads officer school in Victoria, then joined the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, taking part in convoy and mine sweeping operations as a lieutenant on the H.M.C.S.

He was also a member of the pioneering Red Birds Ski Club, raised money for the Canadian Olympic ski team and represented his country as a chef de mission at the 1952 Oslo Olympics. A keen golfer, Don was a member at Lambton Golf and Country Club in Toronto and Royal Montreal Golf Club. He also served as a committee and event volunteer at these clubs.

A long-time member of Delta Upsilon Fraternity, the Montreal Badminton and Squash Club (Atwater Club) and Mount Royal United Church, he also enjoyed social outings in recent years with his 'Romeos' circle of Friends from the Town of Mount Royal. Don spent many memorable summer and ski vacations with his family at Cape Cod, Oyster River on Vancouver Island, Stowe (Vermont), Mont Sainte-Anne and Corlear Bay on Lake Champlain. A modest, generous, gentle man with a playful sense of humour and famous sweet tooth, Don made a point of keeping up with his extensive network of long-time Friends, acquaintances and former colleagues. He had a rich life, well lived, and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his wife Joan (MASON,) with whom he recently marked a 57th wedding anniversary, brother Pat (Judy), sister-in-law Kathryn MASON, brother-in-law Bill MASON (Kati,) children Tim (Christina), Cynthia (Bob), Geoff (Susie), Stephen (Melodie) and Sarah, grandchildren Joshua (Jen), Caitlin, Sarah, Jake, Peter, Andrew, Michelle and Erin and many nephews and nieces.
