KATO, Elizabeth " Betty" (née KARDOS)
After a long battle with diabetes and Alzheimer's disease, on January 24, 2005 at Kensington Gardens, Toronto. Survived by dear daughter Eva KATO and her partner Kenneth DAWE. Loving aunt of Larry KARDOS and family (Allegany, New York,) Dr. Thomas KARDOS and family (San Antonio, Texas,) and Dr. Linda ROBINS and family (Stuart, Florida). Elizabeth will be sadly missed by her sister-in-law Juanita KARDOS, and by cousin Janos PALOTAS and his wife Eva (Lauderdale by the Sea, Florida), their son Gabor and his family, and by her lifelong friend Ibi HOLZMAN (née SPRINGER) (Montreal.) Predeceased by her husband Stephen KATO (1962,) brothers Miklos KARDOS (Budapest, Hungary) and Dr. George KARDOS (Olean, New York) and by parents Menyhert KARDOS (Olean, New York) and Henriette KARDOS (née FISCH) (Budapest, Hungary). Elizabeth was born in Budapest in 1919 and brought up in a happy Jewish home. When Nazi Law was declared in Hungary, Elizabeth and her family were forced to wear a yellow star and live in a house marked with a Mogen David in the Jewish Ghetto. Prior to the liberation of Budapest, her sweetheart, Stephen KATO, arranged for false identification papers for Elizabeth and her family, enabling the entire family (except brother Miklos) to escape just hours before the residents were gathered and deported to Nazi extermination camps. After the war, Elizabeth and Stephen got married and lived, with their daughter Eva, in Soviet-occupied Budapest. During the Hungarian Uprising of 1956, the family escaped to Vienna, and later, with the help of her brother George (who lived in the United States), immigrated to Niagara Falls, Canada. For survival in the new country it was necessary for Elizabeth to learn English and a new trade. She studied and graduated as a beautician and opened a small hairdressing salon. After her husband Stephen's death, Elizabeth bought two houses to run as rooming houses in addition to her beauty business. With granite strength, courage, and good humour, she forged a new life for herself and her daughter in a strange culture under trying circumstances. Private cremation.

There is nothing so treasured and nothing so rare,
As the love that a man and his family share.
Through joy, through laughter, sorrow and tears,
They develop a closeness that grows through the years.
This love that we shared doesn't need to be spoken,
It's a wonderful bond that can never be broken.
A wonderful husband and father laid to rest,
For each of us you did your best.
Your place on earth, no one can fill,
We miss you so much and we always will.

Trucker dies of crash injuries
By Megan O'TOOLE, Free Press Reporter
The death toll from two pileups on Highway 401 near London Friday rose to three yesterday after a trucker badly hurt in one crash died.
William SCHULTZ, 50, from Michigan, was taken to a Woodstock hospital with critical injuries after his transport truck smashed into the back of a flatbed transport truck parked along the highway about 4 a.m. Friday.
He was later transferred to Victoria Hospital in London, where he died of his injuries.
SCHULTZ had been hauling a load of beer at the time of the crash. The impact sent beer, truck parts and wreckage flying across the highway.
The parked truck was an empty flatbed rig whose driver had pulled onto the shoulder for an equipment check, police said.
The collision occurred just west of the Highway 403 cutoff.
SCHULTZ's truck was ripped apart and his cab demolished.
All three west lanes of the 401 near Woodstock were shut down for six hours, causing a severe traffic jam that had cars backed up onto the 403.
Oxford Ontario Provincial Police were continuing to investigate the crash yesterday.
An unrelated collision just hours earlier on the 401 near Chatham left two teenage women dead.
About 2 a.m. Friday, Sarah MOULAND, 19, and Sara LEILI, 18, of Leamington were crushed and killed when an sport utility vehicle crashed into the back end of their car.
The force of the crash propelled the car forward, where it smashed into another stopped sport utility vehicle and crumpled, crushing both girls.
Edward ROBINSON, 32, of Brooklyn, New York is charged with two counts of criminal negligence and dangerous driving causing death.

KERR, Lloyd
It is with great sorrow that the family of Lloyd KERR announce his passing on July 27, 2005, after a brief battle with cancer. Lloyd was predeceased by his beloved wife Joan in 1995. He will be sadly missed by his children Bonnie and David BURRELL, Randy and Val KERR, Chris and Harold RANK, Bill KERR, Tracy and Janice KERR, all of Dorchester and by his grandchildren Jennifer and Joe JOHNSTON, Stacey and Matt DOWNING, Nick and Jordan RANK, Shawna and Jessica KERR and Brody and Brittany KERR as well as his great grandchildren Grace and Abbey DOWNING and Leaha JOHNSTON. Predeceased by his parents Ann and Bill KERR, infant son Michael, his sister Pearl COOK, brothers John and Bill KERR, and cousin Bertie ROBINSON, Lloyd will be remembered by many extended family members and Friends.
Lloyd spent his entire business career with Wolverine Tube retiring after 48 years in 1993, as President and Chief Executive Officer. During those years, as he rose through various positions, he made it a priority to know every employee and to greet each one by name. Lloyd also served as president of the Purchasing Agents Association and the Canadian Copper and Brass Development Association as well as Chairman of the Board of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating and the London Industrial Development Board. This self-made man truly left his mark in the business world. Lloyd's leisure passions were golf, baseball and hockey. He also enjoyed a game of gin with his buddies at Tony's or the company of his poker buddies, in Florida. In his younger years, he coached the Wolverine Tube hockey team in the Industrial Hockey League. Later on, he sponsored the Lloyd's Boys championship slo-pitch team and hockey team as well as minor sports in Dorchester. Whenever possible, he was in the stands cheering them on. When he wasn't out golfing himself, he was watching it on T.V. or cheering on the Blue Jays or the Maple Leafs. The family will greet Friends at Forest Lawn Memorial Chapel for visitation on Friday July 29th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. where a celebration of Lloyd's life will be held on Saturday, July 30th at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Victorian Order of Nurses or the charity of your choice. There will be a memory box on display for any favorite memories or acknowledgements that you may want to share.
Dad, they say it's not what you take when you leave, it's what you leave behind. You have left a close and devoted family who will miss you dearly. Give Mom a hug for us.

CHAMBERS, Edward "Ted" Roswell (January 30, 1928-October 7, 2005)
It is with sorrow that we announce the passing of Edward (Ted) Roswell CHAMBERS on October 7, 2005. Survived by his loving wife, Ora Judith, after 44 years of marriage; beloved father of daughter Constance and son-in-law David ROBINSON; dear Grandpa of Eleanor and Linden. Ted was the youngest of five children. Predeceased by brothers Milo and Graham, Ted is survived by sister Isabelle JOHNSTON and brother John CHAMBERS, both of London. Born and raised in Bothwell, Ontario, Ted began his work life at a young age, working in the nearby Libby's canning plant and driving army vehicles in Southern Ontario during the Second World War. He met his future life mate, Judith, while attending United Baptist Bible Training School and attended Acadia University for a time before returning to Ontario with his bride. In the 1970's they moved to Nova Scotia where he held various management positions in Wentworth and Truro going to the Annapolis Valley where he and Judith ran a Bed and Breakfast before retiring to a lovely spot in Upper Granville. In the summer of 2004, Ted and Judy moved to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island to be closer to their daughter and her family. Given the sudden onset and rapid progression of his illness, this was a great blessing. A strong Christian who believed in living his faith, Ted was devoted to his family, generous to his church and those in need. Friends will be received at 76 Prince Charles Drive, Charlottetown on Wednesday, October 12th, 2005 from 3: 00 to 5:30 p.m. A memorial service will be held at the Middle Sackville Baptist Church, New Brunswick, on Thursday, October 13th at 2 p.m. If desired, in memoriam donations may be made to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation or the Canadian Bible Society.

Bright light for disabled is remembered
Woman with cerebral palsy worked for March of Dimes for years
By James RUSK, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page A12
A month after Janet YOUDELL, described yesterday by a former colleague as "a bright-eyed blonde with a wobbly walk," and her elderly parents died together in an apparent suicide pact, their family and Friends are left wondering why the family had to die.
"There's no way Janet should have died.... I've been crying since before Christmas," Louise SANKEY, a friend since kindergarten, said yesterday after a memorial service organized by the Ontario March of Dimes. Ms. YOUDELL worked for the agency for 14 years.
Days before Christmas, Joseph YOUDELL, 86, his wife Ruby, 79, and their daughter Janet, 49, died in their East York bungalow of carbon-monoxide poisoning.
A note warning of the danger of carbon-monoxide poisoning was pinned to the front door, and a second note was apparently found inside the house along with an outdoor barbeque. Police have ruled out foul play in the deaths.
Ms. SANKEY said she believes Ms. YOUDELL's parents felt that even with home help, they could no longer take care of their daughter, who was born with cerebral palsy, and that they did not want her to move into assisted living.
"This is the second person I know who has committed suicide because of a disability," Ms. SANKEY said.
But her memories are not all sad. When they were in kindergarten, and the Queen Mother came to visit Sunnyview School for the Disabled, the children were supposed to be seated. "But Janet and I stood up," she said.
She plans to organize a fundraising event later this year to help disabled people whose situation has become desperate.
Janet's health had deteriorated since 2000 as the result of a stroke.
Andria SPINDEL, president and chief executive officer of the Ontario March of Dimes, said that after the stroke, Janet had hoped to return to work, "but the days of full recovery never came."
Family friend Lauri Sue ROBINSON, said that Joe and Ruby YOUDELL "were the dearest people, they clearly lived their lives for Janet. They revolved around her."
She said that "I had spoken to Joe a couple of days before they died. He told me how frustrated they were with Janet's health. She had muscle spasms in her jaw that wouldn't stop, and she'd go for days where she couldn't eat."
And with a tear in her voice she said, "We're trying to understand why they chose the path. Knowing Janet, I bet it was her idea, and Joe and Ruby just would not have wanted to live without her."
Despite the way their lives ended, the picture painted of the YOUDELL family was one of achievement. Joe, a farm boy from the Kincardine area, was a tank mechanic who came back from the war and worked for Canada Post until age 65, and then as a courier for a law firm for nearly another 20 years.
Ruby provided a home for both him and their daughter.
Janet earned a degree from York University's Glendon College. And despite being advised on graduation that she should go on welfare because she was unemployable, Janet went to work for the March of Dimes.
She became one of the province's most effective advocates for the disabled.
Paul LOGAN, a past chairman of the March of Dimes, described Janet as "a whirling dervish with a mail cart," which she used to support herself as she moved around the office.
He said she was an example of how "a truly brave spirit" cannot be diminished by the difficulties of the body.
Paul RAINA, March of Dimes director of government relations and her most recent supervisor, recalled that despite her physical weakness, she was "one of the most personally empowered individuals I have ever met...."

Evelyne ROBINSON
By Kathy COOK, Friday, April 15, 2005, Page A20
Farmer's wife, church organist, mother, grandmother. Born January 13, 1916, in Osprey Township, Grey County, Ontario Died March 8 of heart failure, aged 89.
Evelyne ROBINSON led a simple life. She was born on a farm on the 12th Line, atop Blue Mountain, in Ontario. She met her husband, they bought their own farm, and raised a family -- all on that 12th Line.
It was not an easy life. Her mother needed domestic help, so Evelyne only went to school until Grade 6. Yet Evelyne was a strong and willful girl. At 16, she'd earned her driver's license. When she met Ross, a handsome barn-builder helping her father, she'd reached out and shook his hand, a precocious move for a farm girl back then.
In 1945, Evelyne's dreams came true. She and Ross, married with (then) three young children, bought their own farm, three kilometres down the road from Evelyne's birth home. There was no electricity. The house was so cold in the winter that the family all slept together in the living-room to keep warm. The only money came when they sold some cream or some eggs. So they lived off the land.
She stopped driving shortly after marrying. Husbands did the driving in Osprey. So she was basically confined to the isolated farm. Was she lonely? I asked her once. No, she was busy and always looking for more to do. Her mother gave her pieces of old material, and so Evelyne made quilts. She spent many evenings patching work clothes over an oil lamp. "Ross would be hung together with his patches," she said.
Evelyne was a light-hearted woman, almost childish with enthusiasm for life's smaller joys. She'd bring the odd baby pig into the house as a pet. She raised orphaned raccoons. She permissively allowed her children to run wild around the farm. For 25 years she played the organ every Sunday at Rob Roy United Church.
And she sheltered her children from the farm's harsher truths. Somehow my mother, Evelyne's daughter, managed to go through childhood without ever realizing animals were killed on the farm.
When I was young, I remember she'd show me her big arm muscles and strong hands. "These are farm hands," she'd say. Sometimes, later in life, she complained just a little. It was my grandfather who got all the respect for making their farm into a success, but she always worked just as hard as he did, she'd say.
Eventually they sold the farm for a hefty profit and retired to Collingwood. But there were more hardships. Evelyne's eldest daughter struggled with schizophrenia. She lost both her sons to early deaths. Still, when we visited, Evelyne laughed, teased, baked, fussed over the dog, made us mittens, played the piano, and each night wanted to play euchre.
When Ross died in 2001, she rose to the challenge of living alone. Ross had always controlled the finances rather tightly. One of her first decisions as a widow of independent means was to keep the heat on all through the night. At 85, she believed she deserved that. From there, she started doing home improvement projects, never consulting anyone first, she simply hired contractors. It seemed like she played a game of making the man's decisions.
In her last years, she rarely chose to leave the house, but her days were filled, as they'd always been, with laughter, sewing, playing piano, baking, and entertaining the dog. And each time I visited, she'd ask to go on a drive back to the 12th Line.
She taught all of us who grew up watching her an understanding that happiness comes from enjoying life's simple pleasures. She leaves behind two surviving daughters, seven grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.
And soon she will be reunited with Ross, buried together on that 12th Line.
Kathy COOK is Evelyne's granddaughter.

I Remember -- Red HORNER
By Rob MacLAUCHLAN, Monday, May 9, 2005, Page S6
Rob MacLAUCHLAN of Toronto writes about Red HORNER, whose obituary appeared on April 29.
At the height of the Depression in the winter of 1935, three young boys from Stanhope on the north shore of Prince Edward Island decided to write a letter to their favourite Toronto Maple Leafs player, Red HORNER.
The theme of the letter was that the boys, who all lived on a small dairy farm where they shared one pair of skates among 11 children, believed "they had the stuff to make it to the National Hockey League." My father Leslie MacLAUCHLAN (11,) my uncle Harry (9) and Mervyn ROBINSON (9) were convinced that the only thing standing in their way was a lack of hockey equipment and they had come to the conclusion that there must be plenty of it lying around Maple Leaf Gardens. If Red would just toss it into a box, they'd sure put it to good use.
Much to their dismay, the box never arrived. Years later, I had become good Friends with Stewart GAVIN, who played for the Leafs from 1980 to 1985. Through him I was able to track down Mr. HORNER, who learned about the three boys from Stanhope. A few weeks later, a signed photograph of Mr. HORNER was delivered by Stew. Included on the photograph was the note: "Les: Sorry, the stuff must have got lost in the mail. Yours truly, Red HORNER."
That framed photograph hangs proudly in my parent's home, validation that Red at least believed they had the "stuff" to make it to the National Hockey League.

Saul HOLIFF, Agent and Manager: 1925-2005
Sober-minded businessman from London, Ontario, was Johnny Cash's manager from 1960 to 1973, a provocative period that produced the singer's famed live recordings at Folsom and San Quentin prisons
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, May 9, 2005, Page S6
Victoria -- Johnny Cash had enjoyed modest success as a country artist before meeting Saul HOLIFF, a Canadian restaurateur who saw great potential in the guitar-toting baritone.
Mr. HOLIFF believed Mr. Cash deserved better than ordinary dance-hall gigs. He vowed to book the rough-hewn troubadour at no less grand a venue than Carnegie Hall, a promise he would fulfill shortly after becoming his manager.
Nor was the Manhattan landmark the limit to Mr. HOLIFF's ambitions for the entertainer, who was set along a path that would include appearances in feature films and the hosting of his own variety show on network television.
Along the way, Mr. Cash became a singular figure in pop culture, an icon whose rebel persona was expressed by his monochromatic wardrobe and self-chosen description as the Man in Black, which also served as the title to his autobiography. He achieved great fame before his death in 2003, his exposure owing much to the vision and hard work of Mr. HOLIFF.
Mr. HOLIFF was his manager from 1960 to 1973, years in which Mr. Cash became a fixture in the popular imagination, not the least for his daring live recordings behind bars at Folsom Prison and San Quentin.
They were an unlikely pair, the hard-living Christian from rural Arkansas and the sober-minded businessman from London, Ontario Nor was their relationship free from the strife that was a feature of much of Mr. Cash's life. The manager's response to his artist's benders was to retreat. He would wait at home for the inevitable telephone call from an unapologetic Mr. Cash, who would want to return to the road after getting straight.
Mr. HOLIFF was also responsible for getting June Carter to join Mr. Cash's touring show. She would become the singer's second wife and was credited with saving him from drink and drugs. Mr. Cash announced his intention to marry her during a show in London, Ontario, his manager's hometown.
Over the years, a grateful Mr. Cash presented 28 gold records to Mr. HOLIFF. The pair's success was all the more surprising considering that at their first meeting Mr. HOLIFF knew little about pop music and nothing about country. He preferred jazz and classical.
Mr. HOLIFF was raised in Southern Ontario by immigrant parents. His father, Joel, arrived alone from Russia in 1913, working to earn money to send for his wife, Esther, and two daughters. The plan was interrupted by the outbreak of the First World War and, later, the Russian Revolution and subsequent civil war.
The family was not reunited until 1920, by which time a daughter had died. A son, Morris, was born three years, followed by Israel in 1925. The parents soon decided they did not wish to have their youngest child known as Izzy, so instead called him Saul. He would be an adult before discovering it was not his birth name. During the Depression, he delivered newspapers before and after school and sold magazine subscriptions door to door.
With his older brother, he later made the rounds of the neighbourhood to gather large quantities of recyclable newspaper for the war effort. The HOLIFF brothers also delivered fruits and vegetables, while Saul's busy resume included stints as a truck driver and an iron puddler on the night shift at a steel mill. He also sold ladies garments as a travelling salesman. Though underage, he enlisted with the Royal Canadian Air Force, where he completed training as a rear gunner without, in his words, "causing too much damage to my own side." The Second World War ended before he was sent overseas.
After the war, he indulged a passion for theatre by joining a semiprofessional company in performances at the Grand Theatre in London. Barbara ROBINSON's first glimpse of her future husband came as he played Sgt. Gregovich in Teahouse of the August Moon. They married in 1964.
Mr. HOLIFF was also partner in a drive-in restaurant called Sol's Square Boy. The drive-in boasted electronic ordering machines at each parking stall. Food was delivered by carhop, the servings offered on square platters. Hamburger patties were also formed and cooked square, providing "four extra bites," an innovation later used to great success by the Wendy's fast-food chain.
The foray into music management happened by accident. Mr. HOLIFF became a moonlighting impresario to promote his business. Performers at rock 'n' roll shows were expected to hold autograph sessions at the drive-in, generating much interest among local teenagers.
Among the acts were such trailblazers as Duane Eddy and Bill Haley and the Comets. Mr. HOLIFF rode a teen tidal wave. An early foray was a concert billed as a "rockabilly dance spectacle" held at the Palace Pier in Toronto in 1957. The headlining act was "the Bye-Bye Love Everly Brothers," while concert-goers were eligible for such prizes as rock LPs, a transistor radio, and a 48-piece set of silverware.
Volatile Attractions, the showbiz management company Mr. HOLIFF operated with his wife, attracted exceptional talent. Among his clients were Carl Perkins, Tommy Hunter, Barbara Mandrell, the Statler Brothers, June Carter and the Carter Family. Briefly during 1962, he also managed the hard-drinking and unpredictable George Jones, who proved too volatile for Volatile. Mr. HOLIFF turned down Larry Gatlin and Kris Kristofferson, to his later regret.
At the end of an autograph session at the drive-in, Mr. Cash asked Mr. HOLIFF if they could go elsewhere to eat. The restaurateur was unoffended at this slight, accompanying the singer to a better eatery down the road.
The two men struck a quick Friendship. Shortly after the singer's death, Mr. HOLIFF recounted their meeting for reporter Walter Cordery of the Nanaimo Daily News. Mr. HOLIFF urged Mr. Cash to use the mobile telephone in his Cadillac to call home. Mr. Cash returned with a yellow pad of paper. "He said, 'Sign it,' so I did, then he signed it, and that was our contract," Mr. HOLIFF recalled.
Mr. Cash credited his new manager for taking his show and career to another level.
"Instead of just ballrooms and dance halls around the United States and Canada, he said, I could be aiming at Europe, the Orient, and big places in big cities -- Carnegie Hall perhaps, the Hollywood Bowl," Mr. Cash wrote in a 1997 autobiography. "And that could be just the beginning. I took him on and what he said, he did."
Mr. HOLIFF first booked Miss Carter to appear in Mr. Cash's show at the Big D Jamboree in Dallas on December 5, 1961. The manager and the future wife were the two influences which were to save Mr. Cash from his worst excesses with alcohol and amphetamines, Miss Carter with loving patience, Mr. HOLIFF with a steadying hand.
"I certainly wasn't the easiest of clients," Mr. Cash said. "Saul stayed pretty well insulated from the fallout, though. When I did something that left a mess -- things broken, people abused, money squandered, laws broken, jail cells visited -- his technique was simply to disappear, either back home to Ontario or out of touch, unavailable even by telephone."
Despite a deteriorating personal life, Mr. Cash enjoyed a succession of crossover hits, becoming a regular on the country and pop charts with such numbers as Ring of Fire, Ballad of Ira Hayes, It Ain't me Babe, and Jackson, among others. The 1968 album, Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, with its novelty song A Boy Named Sue, made the singer an international sensation.
Mr. HOLIFF demanded and won huge payments for his client, earning six figures for appearances in Las Vegas. Mr. Cash was able to win a massive mainstream audience even as he seemed to remain true to his outsider sensibilities.
The singer starred in an eponymous variety show, which debuted on the ABC network on June 7, 1969. Mr. Cash sang duets on the inaugural program with Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Gordon Lightfoot and Buffy Saint Marie were other Canadian singers to appear in the first season.
In 1973, Mr. HOLIFF was associate producer of Gospel Road: A Story of Jesus, a feature filmed on location in Israel in which Mr. Cash describes the crucifixion and resurrection through music. His wife, June Carter Cash, played Mary Magdalene. Mr. HOLIFF had tired of his role as manager by then. He also figured, incorrectly as it turned out, Mr. Cash's career had peaked.
"He was as mercurial as they come," Mr. HOLIFF once told Adrian Chamberlain of the Victoria Times Colonist. "He was the quintessential enigmatic everything. He was kind, he was cruel, he was thoughtful, he was selfish. And he was smart."
The retired manager returned to university as a mature student, earning a bachelor's degree in history at the University of Victoria. He later moved to Nanaimo, where he died at home, as his death notice described, "at a time of his own choosing."
Saul HOLIFF was born on June 22, 1925, in London, Ontario He died on March 17 in Nanaimo, British Columbia He was 79. He leaves his wife, Barbara; sons Jonathan of Los Angeles and Joshua of Whitehorse, Yukon; brother Morris of Scottsdale, Arizona.

BLAKE, Beatrice May
At the age of 95 and in complete peace, May BLAKE passed away on October 19, 2005. May was care-giver extraordinaire to many children who remember her fondly and with love throughout their adulthood. She was trained as a nanny in England and joined her first family as a caregiver as a young teenager, no older than 15. She emigrated to Canada about 1932. Throughout her early years as a nanny in Canada, May befriended and looked out for other British nannies who would come to Toronto on two-year visas to care for the children of Canadian families. May brought them into the community of other nannies, made sure that they became acquainted with Toronto and sent them home again at the end of two years with farewell parties.
The adults for whom she cared as children and that she called "her charges" owe their values of honesty, integrity, generosity towards others and good humour to her teachings as they grew from infancy through childhood into eventual maturity. May was always proud of the achievements of "her charges" and followed their successes in life, sending congratulations their way and still providing advice as they made their path through life.
May has been a staunch supporter of Saint Margaret's Anglican Church for more than 70 years. Up until two years ago, she was a regular supporter of Saint Margaret's annual Christmas bazaar and rummage sales. She was a frequent visitor to the sick and shut-ins of her congregation. May BLAKE's life was a happy and fulfilled one.
May will be fondly remembered by her many Friends at her Church, including Muriel CAESAR, Len and Jean SOUTH, Trevor and Muriel McCONNELL and Jean FRASER.
She will also be lovingly remembered by "her charges" currently living in Canada, Edward BULMAN and his sister Elizabeth, Nadine, Jon and Paul LEVIN, Sean and Kalen McCOWAN, Denise DELLIO, and Alexandra and Laura ROBINSON. Jean SHAWN, George LEVIN, Anna JOHNSTON (formerly McCOWAN), Perry and Rae DELLIO, Michael ROBINSON and Dr. Gail ROBINSON, and all remember the fine and loving care May BLAKE provided for their children and the tremendous contribution she made to their family life.
Those who wish to celebrate May BLAKE's life may join together at Saint Margaret's Anglican Church, 53 Burnaby Boulevard, Toronto on Monday, October 24, 2005 at 1 p.m. May loved children all of her life and donations in her memory to Save the Children Canada, 300-4141 Yonge Street, Toronto M2P 2A8, would be greatly appreciated.

Edna ROBINSON, Educator (1916-2005)
Ontario's first woman high-school principal also backed bids by her hometown of Hamilton to host the Commonwealth Games. Her father, after all, had started it all in 1930
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, December 7, 2005, Page S9
Aurora, Ontario -- When making presentations on behalf of Hamilton's bid for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Edna ROBINSON sometimes donned her father's jacket. Like its wearer, who had been Ontario's first woman high-school principal, the jacket was loaded with history. In 1930, M.M. ROBINSON had worn it when Hamilton hosted the first British Empire, now the Commonwealth, Games.
History commonly credits Mr. ROBINSON with getting the games started. As his only offspring, the Hamilton-born Miss ROBINSON proudly shared stories of her father's role, to Friends and family and as the bid committee's honorary patron. When the committee became discouraged, Miss ROBINSON would remind them that her father had brought about the Empire Games in only two years.
"She made believers out of us," said Cecelia CARTER- SMITH, a former Canadian Commonwealth athlete and member of the bid committee.
Said Emerson LAVENDER, a long-time friend: "She just loved that involvement. It rejuvenated her."
In 2003, New Delhi was awarded the bid. "Initially, I was stunned," Miss ROBINSON told Ms. CARTER- SMITH, also a columnist for the Hamilton Spectator. "I didn't cry though. I wasn't as emotional as I thought I'd be -- I was too mad."
Ted, as she was nicknamed by her dad in the absence of a son, was no stranger to athletic competitions.
She had fond memories not only of the first Empire Games, but of the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam. As a 12-year-old, Miss ROBINSON had accompanied her father, the manager of the Canadian team, to the games. There, the Canadian athletes befriended her. Miss ROBINSON carried around a stuffed dog they'd signed and shopped with track star Fanny ROSENFELD, later a member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.
More often, she spoke of the Commonwealth Games. Years later, when a Welsh games historian visited Canada, Miss ROBINSON regaled him with stories of their beginnings: how athletes stayed at the family house and how she and her and her father, later the sports editor at the Spectator, travelled by sea to attend subsequent games.
But all this came second in Miss ROBINSON's mind to her own work in education. As well as treading on the ground her father broke, she broke ground of her own. In 1963, she became the first woman principal of a large, urban, composite school in Ontario. The school, Nelson High in Burlington, was one of the largest in the province.
Previously a teacher of French and German at Forest Hill Collegiate in Toronto, in 1957, she moved to the brand-new school in Burlington named for the British naval hero. There she headed its modern-languages department.
When staff met to decide on a school motto, Mr. LAVENDER, a history teacher, suggested a phrase from a Nelson biography: "Exact in thought and exalted in action." Seizing on it, Miss ROBINSON claimed the motto should be the phrase's reverse, "Exalted in thought and exact in action." The dictum was adopted.
"In a sense, it [the motto] personified her behaviour as a teacher, as a principal and all through her life," Mr. LAVENDER said. "She was a meticulous organizer and held very high expectations for the school."
In a time when women just did not become principals unless out of necessity in rural areas, it took a great deal of pressure from bureaucrats to allow Miss ROBINSON to take the then-requisite training program at Queen's University in Kingston. Afterward, she felt she had to be better than the men, according to Jane CLARK, wife of William CLARK, a cousin of Miss ROBINSON's. " Ted loved people. Didn't suffer fools, but really loved young people."
In a school still known for its excellence, Miss ROBINSON demanded strong academic, athletic and art programs.
"She believed extra-curricular activities had an important role to play," said Bryce LEGGATT, a teacher at Nelson when Miss ROBINSON was principal. "She saw them as a vehicle to enrich kids' lives and a place for them to hang their hats."
Many of the strong and talented teachers Miss ROBINSON had a knack for hiring went on to administrative roles. They became known as the "Nelson Mafia."
While principal, Miss ROBINSON asked the art teacher, Robert BATEMAN, to design a mural for the school's cafeteria. Now a famous wildlife artist known for his precise representations, he painted the mural in Cubist style and, along with Grade 9 students, painted a scene from the Battle of Trafalgar. Recently, he returned to touch it up with a later generation of Grade 9s.
Mr. BATEMAN had known Miss ROBINSON since he was a student in her French class at Forest Hill in 1949. There, she maintained a sweet demeanour and complete classroom control, he said.
Mr. BATEMAN didn't pass Grade 12 French with her and for a long time told the story of how Miss ROBINSON had failed him. Once while giving a speech, she said, "Robert BATEMAN is going around saying I failed him in French. In fact, he failed himself."
She did not fail her staff, however, and always supported them. When she was leaving the school to become an inspector of modern languages for southwestern Ontario, Mr. BATEMAN offered to paint her portrait. When board officials balked, Miss ROBINSON went to bat for him and won. The portrait still hangs at Nelson.
Mr. BATEMAN also credits Miss ROBINSON with being one of his first patrons. She purchased Maple Leaf Fence (Walker's Line) from his first show. It began his art career, and he left teaching in 1976 to pursue it.
After serving as an inspector, Miss ROBINSON ended her working life as a board superintendent. Upon retirement, she became a school trustee, leaving the post only to care for her aging parents.
Some suspect her parents were the reason she never married. Although she did have a beau, he was lost during the Second World War and no other man took his place. She'd met him in Germany before the war, while she was studying there for her doctorate in German literature. Fluent in the language, she attended a rally where Hitler spoke for hours. Much later, Miss ROBINSON told young family members, she was surprised to find herself captivated by his charisma in spite of her education, intelligence and worldliness.
Three years ago, she had a chance to see another leader and indulge her well-known sense of humour. In recognition of her hard work on Hamilton's bid for the 2010 games, Miss ROBINSON was invited to sit in a special section of Copps Coliseum during the Queen's jubilee visit. Making a day of it, she hired a limousine. Accompanied by Mr. LAVENDER's wife, Madeline, she posed for a photograph in the backseat. She's captured on film, waving like the queen.
Poised, polite and confident, Miss ROBINSON always wore knit suits, had her hair coiffed and her long, delicate fingers manicured. More than one male student and teacher had crushes on her.
"She had the ego of someone who has confidence resulting from setting a goal and achieving it," Mrs. Clark said.
Recently, Hamilton re-entered the Commonwealth Games ring, vying to hold them for Canada in 2014. Just before her death, Miss ROBINSON was made its honorary patron. Once again the opportunity rejuvenated her. She called the committee almost daily to check on the bid's progress and offer assistance.
While the success of Hamilton's bid will not be known until later this month, Miss ROBINSON remains its honorary patron.
Edna Margaret ROBINSON was born in Hamilton, Ontario on February 23, 1916. She died in Burlington, Ontario on November 14. She was 89.
She leaves Friends, cousins and a multitude of former students.

ROBINSON, Edna -- I Remember
By Jerry GROWE, Monday, December 12, 2005, Page S11
Jerry GROWE of Vancouver also writes about Edna ROBINSON.
I was a member of her last class at Forest Hill Collegiate in Toronto in 1957 and was one of those smitten male students. She was my homeroom teacher for three years, and each year the feelings became more poignant. There was a slight sense of melancholy about her which we fantasized was due to a lost love. But who would ever ask?
The portrait by Robert BATEMAN that accompanied the obituary was stunning, and was as I remember her then. The sketch was also perfect and, for the record, I think the two aptly positioned admirers were Don JARVIS and George SCROGGIE.
Edna ROBINSON was a truly effective classroom teacher; who else could have engaged us brats in the study of "Der Verschwindendes Miniatur"?

ROBINSON, Edna -- I Remember
By Rob WEST, Monday, December 12, 2005, Page S11
Rob WEST of Toronto writes about Edna ROBINSON, whose obituary appeared on December 7.
On Sunday, December 4., I finally realized a lifelong dream to purchase my very own pair of Nokia rubber boots, the Finnish version of the legendary British long boots commonly known as Wellingtons.
Three days later, I found myself reminiscing about Edna ROBINSON, who had died three weeks earlier at the age of 89. My memory was of 1966, and the outgoing principal of Lord Nelson High School in Burlington, Ontario, one "Miss ROBINSON" (it wasn't until much later that I learned teachers, never mind principals, possessed first names) was addressing the incoming Grade 9 class on what to expect during their first year of high school. Being all of 13, and in the company of my very English mother, I was awed. Miss ROBINSON, who counselled students on many matters of importance, including dress and deportment, cautioned the assembled against inappropriate attire, which could lead impressionable youngsters to who knows what. She specifically mentioned "Wellingtons" as unseemly.
Well, Miss ROBINSON, I never did wear Wellingtons at high school, and I thank you for that sage advice (as well as the bit about studying hard). Now that I am 53, I have made many mistakes in my life, so I hope and trust that you will forgive my long-postponed youthful indiscretion of purchasing a brand new pair of Finnish Wellingtons.

Brian KIRKWOOD, Wine Merchant: (1943-2005)
Former musician with the Canadian band Magic Bubble gave up rock 'n' roll to find work in the food industry and survived a devastating layoff to start his own wildly successful company
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, December 22, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- When he was a long-haired member of a rock band in his 20s, Bruce KIRKWOOD was admonished by a family member who told him that he wouldn't amount to anything. The remark didn't faze him. Years later, when he was suddenly laid off from a good job, he didn't let that bother him, either. Instead, he formed his own company and acquired distribution rights to Yellow Tail Shiraz, an Australian product that has become a Canadian wine craze.
In his first career choice, Mr. KIRKWOOD had been bass guitarist and trumpet player in the bands Magic Bubble and Seadog, groups whose 36 recordings included five albums. Magic Bubble was so chic in Canada that it earned a full-page feature in the Toronto Star on December 23, 1973. "Brian was a natural comedian," said Frank CHIARELLI, a band mate for five years. "He did a lot of comedy sketches on stage."
Later, when he sought a more stable life, Mr. KIRKWOOD got involved in selling food and beverages, first with Campbell Soup Co. in Alberta and then later in Ontario where he became sales manager of its canned-food division.
"I sort of broke company rules at Campbell by hiring Brian when he was over 30," said Les ROBINSON, one of Mr. KIRKWOOD's bosses. "But he had some experience with a prepared-meats company and he played in a band, which meant he had experience meeting the public. We put him on our watch list."
Mr. KIRKWOOD stayed with Campbell for close to five years before jumping to Bright's Wines (now Vincor) in 1980 where he was responsible for its retail stores. In 1988, he moved to United Distillers, which later became the huge conglomerate Diageo Canada. He rose to become national vice-president of sales but left the company when he was laid off in 1993.
While being suddenly jobless was devastating, Mr. KIRKWOOD returned to the industry at the head of a company that would sell and market international wines, beers and spirits. In its early days, the Kirkwood Group had just one product -- DAB beer from Germany and struggled to stay in business. Then, in 2000, everything changed. He attended a trade show in Bordeaux, France, where he met Australian John Soutter, Yellow Tail's export director, with the result that the KIRKWOOD Group beat out industry giants Diageo and Maxxium for the prized account.
That hurdle removed, Mr. KIRKWOOD then had to convince the Liquor Control Board of Ontario to put Yellow Tail on its store shelves. "The first cases rolled into Liquor Control Board of Ontario stores in late summer of 2003," said Peter KIRKWOOD, one of Mr. KIRKWOOD's sons. "We knew it would be a great success and we believed in the product. The wine changed the focus of the company."
Yellow Tail Shiraz has since supplanted Wolf Blass Yellow Label Cabernet Sauvignon as the top-selling red wine in Ontario and Canada. Yellow Tail Chardonnay is also a popular product and ranks second in white-wine sales behind Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay.
In the fiscal year that ended in September of 2005, 495,000 cases of Yellow Tail wine were sold in Canada, including 345,000 in Ontario. In addition, the company retains DAB, along with Dooley's, a toffee-flavoured cream liqueur, and a slow-aged Nicaraguan rum, plus a number of French wines.
"Brian helped turn that company into a multi-million dollar operation," said Les ROBINSON.
Brian KIRKWOOD was born April 1, 1943, in Kitchener, Ontario He died on August 31, 2005, of cancer at his home in Oakville, Ontario He was 62. He is survived by his wife Liz, brother David and children Peter, Katie, Justin and Kevin, plus stepchildren Jenn, Christopher and Tim. He was predeceased by his parents Alan and June.
