She moved to Toronto in the mid-50's and she and David were married in 1957. She died the day after their 48th wedding anniversary.

Perhaps the happiest time of her life was the summer of 1967 in Montreal, when she and David hosted more than 80 overnight visitors for Expo. "We waved goodbye and then rushed to change the sheets". In addition to her husband, Dorothy is survived by Susan and Peter MILLER and Jordan and Curtis in Airdrie, Alberta; John and Diana CHAMBERLAIN and Michael and Emma in Oakville; sister Katherine NICHOLS and her family in New Westminster, sister-in-law Evelyn CHAMBERLAIN in St. Albert, Alberta and cousins in British Columbia and England.

Youth killed hitching ride on car
Teen horsing around' on rollerblades
Dies in the arms of his older brother
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
A Pickering youth died in his brother's arms after being run over by a car he had been hitching a ride on while rollerblading.
Derek CAMERON, 15, was "horsing around" on the street outside his family home on Rawlings Dr. about 4: 30 p.m. Wednesday when the accident happened, police said. Derek's father, Scott CAMERON, learned about his son's death while on holiday in Myrtle Beach and rushed home to be with his family last night.
He said his son was an avid hockey player since the age of 6 and wore number 17 on a Pickering house league minor midget team.
"He was a terrific kid and an excellent hockey player," his father said in an interview. "He was full of energy and lived on the edge."
His 17-year-old brother Danny helped set up a memorial to his brother on a street-side hydro transformer outside the family home yesterday.
Derek's blue, white and red hockey jersey was draped over the front of the green box, with several pictures of the boy growing up and in his hockey jersey lovingly placed on top.
In front were some flowers and the words "Love Mom Dad and Danny."
Family friend Shelagh NICHOLS called Derek "a wonderful kid who grew up with one of my sons. We lived just across the back fence. He was just a very athletic kid who loved his brother and people in general.
"He was a real firecracker," she said.
Durham Region police said they are still trying to fit the pieces together to find out exactly what happened on the quiet residential street in the Kingston Rd. and Dixie Rd. area of Pickering. Investigators will say only that the youth was wearing rollerblades while he was hitching a ride from a 1997 Dodge Neon being driven by a 20-year-old woman whom he knew. It is not clear if the youth was beside or behind the vehicle, Sgt. Paul McCURBIN said.
Somehow he fell under the wheels of the car and suffered severe head injuries. He was comforted by his brother, Friends and neighbours until an ambulance arrived. He was transported to Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"It is no fun having your brother die in your arms," an emotional Danny CAMERON said outside his house, as he was comforted by Friends.
Family and Friends are planning a memorial service for Derek today.

Week of Remembrance: Evelyn FLEMING/FLEMMING, Army Nurse (1918-2005)
Caring for injured servicemen, she wrote letters for those who had lost their eyesight and fed the men without hands
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, November 8, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Evelyn FLEMING/FLEMMING stared at the cards displaying colourful, swirling designs with mounting dismay. Fighting panic, she tried again to identify the reds, greens, blues and other colours right in front of her face. It was no use. She realized for the first time in her life that she was colour blind and there was absolutely nothing she could do about it.
Waves of disappointment washed over her. It was February of 1944, and Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING, a registered nurse, wanted nothing more than to join the Canadian Army and do her bit for king and country, as millions of Canadians had been doing since 1939, either in the military or on the home front.
There was one very tiny, albeit illegal and irregular, chance left. The medical technician supervising Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING's examination at Ottawa's Lansdowne Park had been her schoolmate years ago. Seeing her extreme disappointment, he decided to take an enormous personal risk and help her.
" 'How badly do you want to go?' he asked her. She said, 'I want to go.' She failed the test, but this school friend falsified [the result] because she really wanted to go and so she got in the army," said Brenda KENNEY, one of Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING's daughters.
Soon after, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING took the oath of allegiance to King George VI and was formally sworn in to the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps as a second lieutenant.
After four months training in the hospitals at Kingston and Camp Debert, Nova Scotia, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING shipped out to Britain with her two best Friends, Brenda WILSON and Hazel PERRIN. The three nurses had become fast Friends and decided to stick together no matter what. In fact, they were known far and wide as the "Three Ottawas."
A week after boarding their ship in Halifax, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and her Friends landed in a Britain reeling from five years of total war. Although the Luftwaffe's blitz had ended years earlier, British service men and women were still fighting and dying all over the world.
Assigned to No. 18 Canadian General Hospital, in Cherry Tree, Colchester, just after the Allies invaded Europe on June 6, 1944, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING quickly adapted to the routine of an Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps hospital at war. Supervised by a formidable matron, she assisted at operations and treated patients in the wards.
It was a hectic and busy time for Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and the other nurses, doctors and orderlies of No. 18, with wounded pouring in every hour of the day and night in their hundreds, fresh from the fighting in Normandy just over the English Channel. Units of the 1st Canadian Army were pushing inland from the beachhead, making good progress but taking their share of casualties.
"By the end of June, nearly 20,000 casualties from the British-Canadian sector had been evacuated to the United Kingdom, almost 3,000 of them Canadian," wrote Colonel G.W.L. NICHOLSON in Seventy Years of Service, a history of the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps.
Col. NICHOLSON described the routine of a typical Canadian hospital, in this case No. 4 Canadian General Hospital four days after D-Day: "A steady flow of patients to and from operating theatres continued all day and into the evening. Nursing sisters toiling in the wards for 18 hours on end lost all sense of self and often had to be reminded to eat. Except for a few difficult cases requiring assistance by a medical officer, sisters were starting all blood, plasma and saline infusions, taking blood pressure, and giving all serum and penicillin injections."
Treating men who were badly disfigured from facial burns particularly affected Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING, Ms. KENNEY said. "They lost their noses and ears. She said that if ever they could see, they couldn't even wear glasses. She called them 'my boys' [and] became very attached to them."
In the evening, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING escorted "her boys" to the local pub for a drink. She wrote letters for those who had lost their eyesight, and fed the men without hands. It was hard for her, but she was glad to help, Ms. KENNEY said. "A lot of them didn't want to go home, wanted to die because they were so disfigured. Their mental anguish really affected her, [but] she was modest about what she did."
Paradoxically, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and her two Friends enjoyed a very active social life -- years later, she told her daughter her dance card was never empty -- at a time when people were determined to grab whatever pleasure they could.
One night, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and her two sidekicks suffered a narrow escape when they returned home from a pub in the blackout. "It was really foggy, pitch black, they couldn't see their hands in front of their faces and they were walking their bikes when they heard a rifle bolt being cocked," said Ms. KENNEY.
Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and her Friends had walked into a nervous Home Guard patrol. "We were really lucky not to have been killed. It was the most frightening night of my time there," she told her daughter years later.
After the Germans surrendered on May 7, 1945, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING was assigned to an army hospital in Bramshott, Hampshire. In March of 1946, she transferred to another in occupied Germany. For the next two months, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING saw at first hand a devastated Germany and attended a whirlwind round of going-home parties.
After obtaining a certificate in public-health nursing at the University of Toronto in 1948, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING enlisted in the peacetime army on January 13, 1950. Posted to the big supply depot in Montreal's Longue Pointe, Evelyn MORIN -- as Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING was known then met her future husband, Lieutenant Stephen FLEMING/FLEMMING of the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.
A year later, on April 4, 1951, they were married in Fort Lewis, Washington. Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING was on his way to the Korean War and he was in a hurry to marry his sweetheart. After a 10-day honeymoon, he shipped out and she returned to Montreal. They didn't see each other for a year.
Evelyn Inez FLEMING/FLEMMING (née MORIN) was born on December 17, 1918, in Cumberland, Ontario She died of a stroke on July 13 in Ottawa. She was 86. She leaves her husband, Stephen, her daughters Brenda, Joanne, Debbie, Lori, son Stephen, and her sisters Margaret and Cairine.

Just days before War's end, the two married in the Naval Chapel at St- Hyacinthe. They celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary in September this year in what was a long and happy marriage. Prior to the onset of Alzheimer's, Frank and Lois took the time afforded by retirement to 'smell the roses' and enjoyed a long period of quiet contentment. Kind and thoughtful, conscientious, generous and tolerant with a ready laugh and a great sense of humour, he will be sorely missed by Lois, sons Ken and Rick, daughter-in-law Brenda, and granddaughters Jennifer and Victoria. At his request, Frank was cremated and quietly remembered by the family. Donations to the Canadian Alzheimer Society would be greatly appreciated.

Quiet matriarch kept GRETZKYs together
Hundreds of players, fans and strangers attend funeral of 'a great lady'
By Tara BRAUTIGAM, Canadian Press, Friday, December 23, 2005, Page S3
Brantford, Ontario -- Against a life full of triumph, Wayne GRETZKY mourned one of his greatest losses yesterday, bidding farewell to the quiet matriarch who kept his celebrated family together.
"People in Canada knew her as a hockey mother, but we knew her as just a wonderful person," GRETZKY said, holding back tears in a touching eulogy to his mother, Phyllis.
The Anglican funeral service drew hundreds of players, fans and strangers to this southwestern Ontario city of about 90,000 people.
Phyllis, a mother of five and grandmother of 13, was a beacon her children sought in times of need, the 44-year-old hockey icon said.
"If we got in trouble and needed to get out of trouble, we went to our mother," GRETZKY said.
"She cherished the moments she had, not only with her kids, but with her grandchildren. Her eyes used to light up each and every day if she got a phone call from a grandchild, a note, a letter or a gift."
As he spoke to the crowd, a few of whom were brought to tears, GRETZKY looked around at the packed pews.
"We know our mother now is not in pain," said GRETZKY, the first-born son. "She's a tough lady that endured a lot over the last six months physically. She's pain-free now."
Phyllis, 64, died on Monday in hospital. Her children were with her at the end of her year-long battle with lung cancer.
GRETZKY's father, 67-year-old Walter, stood up and hugged his son after the eulogy.
Phyllis's legacy of love for her family was as an example for all to follow, Archdeacon Jim SUTTON said.
"Thank you, God, for giving us people like Phyllis to show us that it's possible to live that way," SUTTON said.
A number of hockey heavyweights, including National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman and hockey superstar Paul Coffey, attended the service at the Grace Anglican Church.
The service ended with Sarah McLachlan's song I Will Remember You and a video montage of family highlights -- clips depicting Phyllis's time as a newlywed and as a proud mother clinging to Wayne's arm at his wedding.
Escorted by his wife, Janet, GRETZKY and the rest of his family followed Phyllis's casket, draped in a white shawl, to its burial.
"It was a great service for a great lady," former GRETZKY teammate Shayne Corson said afterward as church bells rang.
"What else can you say on a tough day like today? It's a sad day for everybody, but they're a strong family, a close family. They'll get through it all."
The mayor of Brantford, a city where GRETZKY's name graces hockey arenas and flags flew at half-mast yesterday, called it a dark day.
"This whole city is in mourning," Mike HANCOCK said. "We all feel we lost a family member."
Phyllis will continue to be looked up to by generations of hockey mothers and National Hockey League hopefuls lacing up skates on frigid Saturday mornings, Hockey Canada president Bob NICHOLSON said.
"Moms are a huge part of the game of hockey," NICHOLSON said. "There's a lot of moms that take their kids to the rinks and make sure they get up on time, and Phyllis is sort of the ideal mom in this country."
GRETZKY, the executive director of the Canadian Olympic hockey team, wasn't in Vancouver on Wednesday for the announcement of the lineup that will play in Turin, but he will resume his duties with the team in January, NICHOLSON said.
The National Hockey League's career leading scorer also put his coaching career with the Phoenix Coyotes on hold last week after his mother's health took a downturn.

JOHNSON, Frank (1921-2005)
On the evening of December 2, 2005, Frank lost his battle with Alzheimer's. He died at Sunrise Senior Residence in Mississauga, in his eighty-fifth year. Born and raised in Toronto, he went on to serve with distinction in the Signals Division of the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve during the Second World War. Following the War, he joined Frankel Structural Steel as a 'blueprint boy' and rose through the organization to become a partner and Vice-President of Operations. He was instrumental in the construction of several Toronto landmarks including the Toronto-Dominion Centre, First Canadian Place and the C.N. Tower. In addition to his duties at Frankel, he was a 'Dollar-A-Year Man' for the Department of Defense Production during the Korean War and served for many years on the Toronto Bid Depository Committee. During the War, Frank met Lois NICHOLSON who was serving as a Women's Royal Naval Service in the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service in St-Hyacinthe. Just days before War's end, the two married in the Naval Chapel at St-Hyacinthe. They celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary in September this year in what was a long and happy marriage. Prior to the onset of Alzheimer's, Frank and Lois took the time afforded by retirement to 'smell the roses' and enjoyed a long period of quiet contentment. Kind and thoughtful, conscientious, generous and tolerant, with a ready laugh and a great sense of humour, he will be sorely missed by Lois, sons Ken and Rick, daughter-in-law Brenda, and granddaughters Jennifer and Victoria. At his request, Frank was cremated and quietly remembered by the family. Donations to the Canadian Alzheimer Society would be greatly appreciated.
