Peacefully and with grace in Halifax on May 24, 2005, with her daughters at her side. Born June 23, 1918 in Quebec.

Courageous, capable and always resourceful, Marion was Peter's constant support until his death in 1985. She found great pleasure in books, cats, fishing and in all birds, but especially loons. She wrestled and coaxed several beautiful gardens out of unpromising patches of land and inspired a love of flowers in all her daughters. For decades her prodigious knitting needles helped support the sheep farming industry. Her recipe for macaroni and cheese was in a class by itself. We will miss her. In keeping with Marion's wishes, cremation has taken place. Interment in Quebec will follow at a later date. If desired, in lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Marion's memory to one of her favourite causes, the Canadian Wildlife Federation or the Salvation Army, or a charity of choice.

ERB, John Edwin (13 September 1932-31 July, 2005)
Reverend Canon, Executive Director, Anglican Foundation
"We have lots of love, Friendship, family; we are blessed." These were some of John's last words, given through a wonderful smile, as his magnificent brain was being ravaged by the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. John was born in Kitchener, Ontario, to the late Irvin and Sally ERB (née MEYSCHEIN.) He will always be missed by his adored children Nicholas and Katie, his wife Didy (née BRADISH) of 29 years, his loving sisters and brothers-in-law Cathie and John HOWARD, Hornby Island, British Columbia, and Margie and Bob CARR, Hamilton. 'John The Giant' was a special uncle to Stephen HOWARD and Rhonda SPENCE, Emily HOWARD and Alex LAVIGNE; Tom HOWARD and Landys KLYNE; Mary HOWARD, Stewart, Duncan, Will and Angus MURRAY; Sally HOWARD, Jim and Tommy HAMAGUCHI; Sarah CARR Tim CARR and Kate FEIGHTNER; Pat CARR, Nadine HEINTZ and Oliver CARR; and friend David HUGHES. His many ERB and Meyschein family cousins love him and will miss him.
A passionate Canadian, John was a leader, Anglican Priest, teacher, traveller, camper and actor. Until his late teens John was a member of Trinity United, the ERB family's church, where he grew up in the Sunday School. He attended 'Young People's' both there and at Saint John the Evangelist Anglican Church. When he returned after working for a year in England, he joined the confirmation class at Saint John. Thus began his journey to become an Anglican priest. Graduating from the Kitchener Public School system and Wilfred Laurier University, he received his early theological training from Trinity College. He continued graduate studies in later years in Boston, Virginia and Jerusalem.
John's ministry began at St. Aidan's in 1965. In 1967 his strong identification with young people led him to a truly successful period as Director of Youth for the Church of England, both in Guyana, S.A. and then in the United Kingdom..
John returned to Canada with Didy in December 1973 and continued his ministries, first at Grace Church on the Hill, then at St. Luke's East York. In 1981 he became Rector of St. Michael and All Angels, where he embraced all, and many saw him as more than a pastor. He retired from St. Michael's in 1997. For the past seven years John's energetic leadership has been devoted to the Anglican Foundation of Canada, a work he loved. It enabled him to travel the length and breadth of this country, often visiting parishes in small communities, and as in all of his previous work, met wonderful dedicated people and established lasting Friendships and respect everywhere.
Throughout his working life John participated on many Boards and Committees focusing on community outreach, and has helped develop programs such as Out Of The Cold, Street Haven for battered women and Christie Gardens, and has worked to encourage interfaith ministry. His robust leadership has been recognized and honoured in many ways including the 125th Anniversary Medal of Canada Member and former Chaplain, Order of Saint John Ambulance, Serving Brother - Saint John of Jerusalem; Chaplaincy appointments to The Royal Society of Physicians and Surgeons, The Canadian Club of Toronto, The Benchers and The Order of St. Lazarus.
His personal passions are his family, his ministry, the theatre, ballet, opera, the family cottage at Oliphant and the Taize Retreat in France.
During his hospital confinement John and his family were enormously moved by those many Friends, acquaintances and co-workers old and new, who visited during his last days. Literally, they came by the hundreds from all spectrums of society to reminisce, renew Friendships and offer their love and support. Nothing could have made more visible the lasting impact John had on so many lives.
We will always be grateful for the kindness and incredible care given to John and his family by all the caregivers in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, please join John in his living legacy for theological education through his work at the Anglican Foundation of Canada (80 Hayden Street, Toronto, M4Y 3G2), or to the charity of your choice.
Visitation will be at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W., Toronto, between Yonge and Avenue Rd., 1: 00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7: 00 to 9:00 p.m. Friday, August 5th.
The funeral will be held at St. James Cathedral, King St. E. at Church Street, at 11: 00 a.m. Saturday, August 6th. A service preceding interment in Woodland Cemetery will be held in Kitchener at the Church of Saint John The Evangelist, Water Street, north of King Street, on Monday, August 8 at 11: 30 a.m. Reception at 10:30 a.m. in the Church Hall.

Until his late teens John was a member of Trinity United, the ERB family's church, where he grew up in the Sunday School. He attended "Young People's" both there and at Saint John the Evangelist Anglican Church. When he returned after working for a year in England, he joined the confirmation class at Saint John. Thus began his journey to become an Anglican priest. Graduating from the Kitchener Public School system and Wilfred Laurier University, he received his early theological training from Trinity College. He continued graduate studies in later years in Boston, Virginia and Jerusalem. John's ministry began at St. Aidan's in 1965. In 1967 his strong identification with young people led him to a truly successful period as Director of Youth for the Church of England, both in Guyana, S.A. and then in the United Kingdom John returned to Canada with Didy in December 1973 and continued his ministries, first at Grace Church on the Hill, then at St. Luke's East York. In 1981 he became Rector of St. Michael and All Angels, where he embraced all, and many saw him as more than a pastor. He retired from St. Michael's in 1997. For the past seven years John's energetic leadership has been devoted to the Anglican Foundation of Canada, a work he loved. It enabled him to travel the length and breadth of this country, often visiting parishes in small communities, and as in all of his previous work, met wonderful dedicated people and established lasting Friendships and respect everywhere. Throughout his working life John participated on many Boards and Committees focusing on community outreach, and has helped develop programs such as Out Of The Cold, Street Haven for battered women and Christie Gardens, and has worked to encourage interfaith ministry. His robust leadership has been recognized and honoured in many ways including the 125th Anniversary Medal of Canada; Member and former Chaplain, Order of Saint John Ambulance, Serving Brother - Saint John of Jerusalem Chaplaincy appointments to The Royal Society of Physicians and Surgeons, The Canadian Club of Toronto, The Benchers and The Order of St. Lazarus. His personal passions are his family, his ministry, the theatre, ballet, opera, the family cottage at Oliphant and the Taize Retreat in France. During his hospital confinement John and his family were enormously moved by those many Friends, acquaintances and co-workers old and new, who visited during his last days. Literally, they came by the hundreds from all spectrums of society to reminisce, renew Friendships and offer their love and support. Nothing could have made more visible the lasting impact John had on so many lives. We will always be grateful for the kindness and incredible care given to John and his family by all the caregivers in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital. In lieu of flowers, please join John in his living leg
