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.

RICHARDSON, Margaret W. (née BEBBINGTON)
In loving memory of my beloved wife Margaret W. Richardson (nee BEBBINGTON,) who passed away 8th April, 1999 in London, Ontario, Canada.
I long to see her kindly face,
I long to see her smile,
I long to see her tender eyes,
And to sit by my side for a while,
I long to hold her hand in mine,
And tell her how much I cared,
And how glad I am to know it was me,
With whom her life she shared,
No one will ever take her place,
And no one ever can,
To brighten my life the way she did,
This sweet and lovely lady,
I know I will wait until we meet,
Upon that other shore,
Where life goes on forever,
We shall part no more,
And be together always.
Your loving husband always Eric and family Margaret, Ray, Ashley, Samantha and Gareth.

Sweetheart, you left me suddenly a year ago today.
I had no idea how sick you were.
At least I had three days with you to talk about what your wishes were before entering heaven.
Honey, we had 34 wonderful years together. I miss your kisses and company.
Wishing you were still here, sweetheart.
Love you always, Wayne

RICHARDSON, Sharon
In loving memory of my dear sister, Sharon RICHARDSON, who passed away April 12, 2004.
As I sat in your room watching you sleep
I thought of old memories and will treasure them deep.
Your laughter, your smile, your twinkling eyes
I think of them all with heartfelt sighs.
As I watched you take your last, slow breaths
I knew you were ready for a peaceful rest.
The smile on your face told me you were okay
I have that to hold onto day after day.
I know you are now in a beautiful place
I'm sure Mom and Uncle Gord have a smile on their face.
Give them a hug and send them my love
I know yous will be watching from up above.
I will remember every moment we spent together
They will stay in my heart forever and ever.
It was so hard to say goodbye
I know you told me not to cry.
My tears I will wipe, Ill change my frown to a smile
I know I will go on, but it will be hard for a while.
I love you, Sharon, please never forget
We will meet again, some day, but not just yet.
You are missed more than you know
The ones who truly cared were heartbroken to see you go.
Lovingly remembered and never forgotten, your sister Wendy DOWDEN

Rose Richardson YANOVSKY
By Jane BOULDEN and Gillian SADINSKY, Wednesday, June 29, 2005, Page A18
Wife, mother, restaurateur. Born January 15, 1938, in England. Died March 18, in Kingston, Ontario, of cancer, aged 67.
Rose Allen Richardson YANOVSKY said many times how lucky she had been and what a good life she'd had, a conviction that gave her much comfort as she departed. Her two great sorrows were the early death of her mother and the sudden death of her husband, Zalman YANOVSKY, two years ago.
She met Zalman (of Lovin' Spoonful fame) at a party in Toronto in the early 1970s and invited him to her farm outside Kingston, Ontario Zal brought along his guitar and his three-year-old daughter Zoë. He came for a weekend and stayed the rest of his life. People smile when they think of the combination -- the ebullient black-haired Zalman and his lovely blonde English Rose, but they were a good fit and did almost everything together. After he died, Rose said, "We even collected the eggs together." She called it a 24-hour-a-day partnership.
Together they created two instantly successful businesses, both in old downtown limestone buildings that they restored. The first was Chez Piggy Restaurant, opened in 1979. The staff was their extended family, its core still there 27 years later. In 1994, they opened Pan Chancho, a bakery and deli. In addition to the food, many things draw new converts (as well as those for whom these Kingston institutions have become second homes): the grace and creativity of the restorations, the art, and the sheer pulse of the life that has grown within the two entities.
The younger of two daughters, Rose was born into a happy family in England in 1938. A photograph that she kept at her bedside shows Rose at 5, face upturned to the camera, smiling like a happy little imp while her parents and older sister, Julia, look on more sedately. Rose had a strong sense of who she was; it translated into an ability to connect with people.
Rose arrived in Kingston in the late 1950s after she'd finished school. Here she met her first husband, Gordon RICHARDSON, a stockbroker, and they married in 1959. They bought farm property east of the city and built an elegant house on a ridge with a view of the St. Lawrence River. When she and Gordon divorced a decade later, Rose stayed on the farm while he moved out west. Typical of Rose, she remained his friend until he died years later.
From childhood, Rose loved all animals, and they continued to bring her much pleasure and comfort to the end. The farm was home to an ongoing series of dogs, horses, cats, sheep, goats, peacocks and chickens for whom finding themselves on the farm and in Rose's care was surely a reward for difficulty in an earlier life.
Rose was very good company. She loved to travel and was one of the best read, most curious people you could spend time with. She was also the kind of friend whose intelligent empathy and humour provided great comfort. Countless people will be forever grateful for her quiet, steady and welcome support. Not many knew until lately (although they probably suspected) that Rose was a consistent and generous philanthropist of food, literacy and development causes in Kingston and around the world.
After Christmas, Rose turned her attention to getting as much in order as she could for Zoë, who takes over the business and whose competency gave Rose great pride and pleasure. Curious to the end, Rose watched the process of her own dying with the same grace and interest with which she'd lived and she shared her observations with her Friends as she went along. This was, to us, an extraordinary act of generosity and strength. Rose left a legacy to Kingston that has become part of its culture. She also left memories of a wonderful human being.
Jane and Gillian are Rose's Friends.

RICHARDSON, Burton Taylor, 1993 -- Died This Day
Saturday, August 20, 2005, Page S11
Journalist and political aide born in Saskatchewan in 1906
After joining the Regina Post (now the Regina Leader-Post), he put in his time as a junior reporter until 1936, when he was sent to Edmonton to report on the recently elected Social Credit government there. In 1943, he was sent to cover the war in the South Pacific and in 1946 he witnessed the founding of the United Nations in San Francisco. After that, he returned to Saskatchewan as editor of the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix and later became editor of the Toronto Telegram. In 1963, he became executive assistant to John DIEFENBAKER while he was prime minister and opposition leader. He later turned his years with Mr. DIEFENBAKER to good account by editing some of the Diefenbaker speeches and publishing them in 1972 under the title These Things We Treasure.

Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER paraded daily into the House of Commons with a military bearing befitting a retired major-general. As sergeant-at-arms, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER handled responsibilities ranging from security to the allotment of parking slots. His duties that gave him much control over the day-to-day lives of members of Parliament, a power exercised out of public sight.
More conspicuous was Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's role in leading the parades that open and close a day's sitting. In preceding the Speaker on entering and leaving the House, the sergeant-at-arms carries the ceremonial mace, a symbol of authority.
Dressed in a black court coat and a tricorne hat, the mace gripped by his right hand as it rested on his right shoulder, a ceremonial sword carried at his left hip, with service ribbons on his breast adding a dash of colour, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER presented the image of a man one would not wisely cross. For all that, his long tenure as sergeant-at-arms coincided with a breakdown in traditional parliamentary behaviour. On two occasions, members grabbed the mace, a shocking breach of decorum considered a gross contempt of Parliament.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was the longest-serving sergeant-at-arms since Confederation. His 27-year tenure surpassed that of the other seven men to have held the position.
A long climb through the ranks of the armed forces prepared him well for doing battle with civilians, as Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER proved a wily adversary in bureaucratic squabbles.
Born in Drummondville, Quebec, Maurice Gaston CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was educated at Mount Allison University at Sackville, New Brunswick, and, later, at the University of Liege in Belgium. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1952 while still a teenager, and married Joan CAHILL of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, before he was 20.
Serving as a navigator with Maritime Air Command, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER became an air instructor at the Air Navigation School at Winnipeg in 1960. He was appointed resident staff officer at Laval University at Quebec City two years later.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER relocated to Europe in 1964, serving as protocol chief for the armed forces. He was also appointed executive assistant to the commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force air division. After graduating from the Canadian Forces staff college in 1969, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was named bilingual policy adviser to the personnel chief. He was promoted to the rank of major-general in 1975.
He became executive assistant to Liberal defence minister Donald MacDONALD in 1970, remaining in the post under Edgar BENSON, C.M. (Bud) DRURY, James RICHARDSON and Barnett (Barney) DANSON.
The retired general was appointed sergeant-at-arms on April 27, 1978, by Pierre TRUDEAU, the first of seven prime ministers for whose security on Parliament Hill he was responsible. Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER succeeded David CURRIE, a decorated war hero awarded the Victoria Cross who had been sergeant-at-arms for 18 years.
As the official Commons guard, the sergeant-at-arms places the mace on a table before the Speaker. He then sits patiently throughout proceedings adjacent to the entrance to the House. The role of sergeant-at-arms carries with it a centuries-old responsibility for security, hence the mace and sword.
Yet, one of Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's first public statements regarded the diminished size of the Christmas tree installed in the lobby of the House. Several controversies generated headlines in his first years. A stern report from the auditor-general was highly critical of Parliament's administration, noting an annual $3.5-million deficit from restaurants and cafeterias.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was soon embroiled in a public squabble over spending with Speaker Jeanne SAUVÉ. Without her knowledge, he had ordered $10,000 of riot gear, including vests, helmets, handcuffs and 12-gauge shotguns. He had also neglected to inform her of the creation of a new restaurant to address overcrowding in Parliament's main dining room. Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER opened an elegant, 70-seat restaurant for senior bureaucrats in the South Block in 1980. The first-class restaurant served $2.75 gourmet meals, a bargain for top mandarins as each meal served cost $12 in subsidies.
The Speaker called the restaurant scandalous, ordered it closed (after having allowed it at first to remain open), and issued a public rebuke of the sergeant-at-arms' spending habits.
An attempt soon after to end wasteful spending left Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER with egg on his face. A special Commons-Senate committee decided laying off 30 cafeteria workers would save money. But members of Parliament and bureaucrats proved sadly incapable of tidying up after themselves, and the federal health department sent a letter of reprimand to the sergeant-at-arms insisting the unhygienic practice not continue.
Over the years, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER has also had to sweep offices for bugging devices, and ordered walls rebuilt to prevent eavesdropping among rival caucuses and research staffs.
Two incidents in 2002 raised questions about security in the wake of the previous year's attacks on New York and Washington. A protester crashed the official unveiling of former prime minister Brian Mulroney's portrait. Two weeks later, a man left a grenade at the front desk of the Langevin Block, across the street from Parliament Hill and outside of the sergeant-at-arms' jurisdiction.
At the adjournment of the House on October 30, 1991, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER shouldered the mace when rushed by an member of Parliament. Angered by a ruling by the deputy speaker, New Democrat Ian WADDELL tried to grab the mace from the sergeant-at-arms.
An apologetic Mr. WADDELL was called to stand at the bar of the House the next afternoon, where he was reprimanded for a breach of privilege and gross contempt of the House.
In 2002, member of Parliament Keith MARTIN, then with the Canadian Alliance, touched the mace in protest the loss off his private member's bill on marijuana decriminalization. He was censured by the House.
In 2002, all five parties in the House paid tribute to Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER for his 50 years of public service. (By coincidence, the honour came 11 years to the day after the WADDELL incident.) The unanimity among the speakers led Progressive Conservative leader Joe CLARK to quip: "Mr. Speaker, it is a good thing there are only five parties in the House or these tributes could cause an outbreak of order."
Earlier that month, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER co-ordinated the royal visit to Canada as the Canadian Secretary to the Queen. He became the longest-serving sergeant-at-arms since Confederation last year, surpassing the 26-year tenure of Henry Robert SMITH (1892-1917.)
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER took his responsibilities most seriously. In December, 1995, a Liberal member of Parliament in a Santa Claus costume and accompanied by an elf arrived on the floor of the House to spread bonhomie. Hansard reporters captured the interruption in typically understated fashion, inserting a note in the account of daily proceedings. It read: "Editor's note: Whereupon a visitor in red entered the Chamber."
The sergeant-at-arms, perhaps not fully appreciating the spirit of the season, gave the bum's rush to Santa, ushering Stan DROMISKY off the floor.
Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was born on June 6, 1935, at Drummondville, Quebec He died of colon cancer on Tuesday at the Elizabeth Bruyere Health Centre at Ottawa. He was 70. He is survived by his partner, Mary-Lynn GALLANT. He also leaves son Michael, and daughter, Nancy, as well as their mother, Joan, from whom he was separated.

Jack HURST, 83: Loyal Beach knave
Community fixture at Queen and Beech
Greeted every passerby as 'Sire' or 'Milady'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Does every community have a Jack HURST? A man who greeted every day with a grin, who greeted every single person he passed on the street with a salutation. A man so entrenched in his community he made newcomers feel as if they too belonged there just by saying hello to them.
And his community? Four blocks or so in the east end of the Beach. A small world, but his world.
For more than 50 years he lived there, first on Silver Birch Ave., in a fourplex that used to be the old Balmy Beach Club with his "dear Mum" as he always called Isabel HURST, who brought up four kids cleaning doctors' homes after her husband deserted the family. After "dear Mum" died in 1980 he moved one block to the west to a place on Willow Ave. For the past 10 years or so -- no one is sure how long -- he lived in a ground floor bachelor with a 12-foot ceiling on Beech Ave., in the building that also houses the Fox movie house.
He had the rolling gait of a sailor navigating a storm, a Tintin tuft of still sandy hair and, in fact, the same small, open face of the French cartoon character, and he died -- at 83 on September 13 -- in the veteran's wing at Sunnybrook hospital, wanting to be back home in the Beach.
He'd been ill and increasingly immobile for a year. It would take him three traffic lights to cross Queen St. E. to the Garden Gate restaurant (known to locals as the Goof) to join the self-styled Goof Support Network, six regulars who met for breakfast Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for years.
"Jack was a really important member of the group because he made each day so bright and funny," said Doug RICHARDSON.
The two would talk about the Crusades, history, Einstein and, always, politics. HURST, a Trudeau-hating Tory, thought things were going to hell in a handbasket, grumbled about young people being on the wrong track and the rich guys moving in and spoiling his Beach -- and then would leave the Goof and stop and chat to these same children and rich guys.
RICHARDSON sometimes helped him cross back over Queen St. "We'd stand in the centre, shielding Jack from the traffic, and force people to stop," he said. "The guy had ulcers on his ankles and he couldn't move. He was in real pain."
But still HURST was out and about most days, carrying his battered soft-sided bag wherever he went. He'd stop off at the Remarkable Bean where George FOWLER would fix him a coffee. "He couldn't sit, his knees were shot," said FOWLER. " He'd stand here by the milk and cream and chat to the morning customers."
Susan FOWLER, George's mother and the owner of the coffee shop, kept an eye out for HURST. She'd greet him most mornings as she walked to work at 6 a.m. "Every day I wake up and am still breathing is a gift," he would say to her.
He was proud, he was certainly stubborn. He rejected all and any aid although there was a particular cab driver, an old school friend it is thought, who used to sit in his car in front of HURST's apartment just in case he needed to run an errand.
And the Queen St. streetcar drivers would wait for him when they saw him slowly, ever so slowly, inching his way to the streetcar stop at the corner. Some of the drivers used to help him into the car -- his knees were so stiff he had to enter and exit the car backwards.
A neighbour made him a railing with a hoop at the end so HURST could pull himself up the few steps to his home. A friend wanted to start a fund to buy him a scooter, but he didn't want one. Others also offered to buy him a motorized wheelchair, which he dismissed, saying he needed the exercise of walking.
He suffered to walk, but he needed to be out in his community, saluting the men with a "Good morrow, Sire," the women as "Milady" with a sweep of the arm and a slight bob, or simply as "Dearie." "I think I see an angel," he would say to the younger women. Always, he would tell them all, he remains their loyal knave and subject.
But for a public figure -- which is what HURST was at Queen St. E. and Beech Ave. where he would sit on the bench outside the corner natural food store, pant legs rolled up, legs out straight, telling everyone he was just getting some sun on the knees -- he was a very private man. "I was never allowed into his apartment," said Jerry SZCZUR, the Fox owner and his landlord. No one was.
He'd always been a packrat and latterly neither he nor his apartment was very clean. A neighbour bringing him some home baking last Easter said his door flew open when she knocked, revealing HURST lying on six or seven dirty mattresses on the floor in a room overflowing with empty pizza boxes and cans.
"He was obviously embarrassed and said he was sick," said Ruth Ellen BRUCE.
HURST had been a housepainter, who had painted BRUCE's home on more than one occasion. Because the Bruce home is high, he called himself Michelangelo and her two daughters "the angels." For years, he showed up at their house every Christmas and Easter with a garbage bag bearing gifts -- shortbread for the adults, dolls and later, books for the girls.
He was Rembrandt when he visited Diana ANDERSON's home those mornings and her husband, a psychiatrist, was "Freud" or " Governor."
"He had a route on Christmas morning," she said. "He'd have the same old jokes year after year. And he always told us how lucky we were to have (son) Jamie."
When he was growing up, HURST was known as Jake, and famous for the parties he gave and for being the fastest man on the rugby team at East York Collegiate. He enlisted in the army and was shipped out to England but never saw action because of his flat feet, a story he used to love to tell on himself. Never married, he trained as a teacher and taught for a couple of years before becoming a housepainter. For 10 years -- between 1965 and 1976 he was the manager at the Fox theatre.
"He was eccentric a touch," said his younger sister Dorothy MacDONALD, who lives outside Sudbury. "He lived his life the way he wanted to and he was a very happy man because he was doing what he wanted to do."
Her family often visited him when he lived with their mother, but when he moved out on his own, he discouraged visits to his home. Anyone picking him up to go to family events had to meet him at the corner.
"He was very independent," said John MacDONALD, Dorothy MacDONALD's son. "He always wanted to be in the Beaches and the family respected that."
When HURST fell ill in February and was hospitalized, the family was there, cleaning his apartment and spending nights and days in the hospital. When HURST wanted out of hospital, he was brought home for a month before his health failed again and he was re-admitted.
"When we were trying to assist Jack in his apartment, there was a constant parade of people going by asking after Jack," said MacDONALD, an architect in Kitchener-Waterloo.
He found out that his uncle had been helping people 20 years younger than he. Unbidden, he'd shovel the snow in front of his apartment building, the Goof and the local solar laundromat. He'd go grocery shopping at the Valu-Mart for a 90-year-old neighbour, even though it would take him, literally, hours to go the three blocks. And people would always offer to help him carry those groceries.
"To be exposed to the level of neighbourhood connect he had and continues to have, well, the Beaches is just a very special place," said MacDONALD. "In the end, we are all Jack's loyal knaves and subjects by virtue of his credos by which we live our lives."
