GIRARDI, Virginia (née ROS)
Peacefully at home, in her sleep just before 10 a.m. Friday, August 19, 2005. In her 100th year, "Gina" was born October 25, 1905, in Sacile, Friuli, Italy. She was the last surviving child of four sons and five daughters born to Davide and Giuseppina ROS. One brother died fighting during the Great War; a sister died of Spanish Flu; a brother and a sister died in an epidemic and another sister died of a heart condition. When her mother died, Virginia, 11, moved in with her Aunt Pina. Gina married her true love Luigi GIRARDI, a bricklayer, but was widowed at a young age after his death on April 6, 1939. As a child during the First World War, she was slapped by an occupying Austrian soldier for not listening to him. As a young widow during the Second World War, she survived the deprivations and heartache to raise two young children. She arrived in Canada in 1961, following in the steps of her daughter, the late Silvana (the late Silvio LAMBERTI,) and son Virginio (Maria.) She is also survived by four grandchildren, Eddie and Rob (Siobhan MOORE) Lamberti, and Claudio and Alida (Mark GREGORY.) She became a Canadian citizen in 1975. She danced and made merry at her 95th birthday celebration. Virginia had a passion for life, having taken numerous trips to Italy, Las Vegas, Florida and points in-between. All who knew her were smitten by her vitality and exuberant personality. She was overjoyed as she became "Bisnonna" (great grandmom) three times. Her spirit never waned, even during her last days as her body tired. As her favourite chair now remains empty, "Bisnonna" will also be dearly missed by her great grandchildren Dylan SILVIO and Rose Kathleen LAMBERTI, and Jonathan GREGORY. Visitation Sunday 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Bernardo Funeral Home, 2960 Dufferin St. (2 streets south of Lawrence Ave.) A 9: 30 a.m. Monday Funeral Mass will be held at Saint John Bosco Roman Catholic Church on Rogers Rd., east of Dufferin St. Burial at Prospect Cemetery.

James Weston JOHNSTON
By Paul ROSBOROUGH, Thursday, June 30, 2005, Page A22
Husband, father, veteran, engineer, leader. Born April 16, 1923, in River Hebert, Nova Scotia Died December 22, 2004, in Kingston, Ontario, of cancer, aged 81.
James Weston JOHNSTON (Wes) was one of seven children. When Wes was three years old, he moved to Newcastle Creek, New Brunswick, where his father worked as the manager in a coal mine.
After the Second World War started, Wes joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 19 and was transferred to 434 Squadron, part of Bomber Command in England, where he flew in Lancaster bombers as a Wireless Air Gunner.
Wes didn't talk very much about his war experiences; however, his flight log was quite lengthy. His entries detail what cities he bombed and when he saw German jets flying up to attack the bombers for the first time. The horrors he must have seen, and the sacrifices that were made to make Canada and the world safe, will never be forgotten.
After the war, Wes graduated from the University of New Brunswick as a civil engineer. In 1951, he rejoined the Royal Canadian Air Force to work in construction engineering and particularly enjoyed his posting to Baden-Soellingen in Germany. Wes left the air force in 1968 and worked for Agriculture Canada until his well-earned retirement in 1983.
Wes met Helen SALIGA- ROSBOROUGH in 1973 and immediately gave unconditional love to her young sons, Danny and Paul. This is extraordinary, given he was caring for four children of his own Don, Mike, Betty and Robin -- from a previous marriage to Joan. Wes and Helen had a special bond that made them inseparable for 30 years. They were married on March 15, 1975, and celebrated daily their renewed life together that included ballroom dancing, walking and cooking -- it was clear they had each found their soul mates.
Wes served in many volunteer positions, particularly after his retirement in 1983. He was always volunteering to drive cancer or dialysis patients to medical treatment, clearing cross-country trails, or serving on executive boards of charities. In Brockville, his service for the United Way and the Volunteer Bureau gave him particular satisfaction. Moreover, he led the effort to build a new home for the Royal Canadian Legion in Westport, and they created an award in his name for his dedication and commitment. But despite all this, he was modest about his accomplishments and never bragged. He just felt it was the right thing to do.
Wes had a warm heart for snakes and insects. He helped Helen get over her fear of dragonflies by letting them land on him and pointing out how beautiful they truly are. Further, at their cottage near Carleton Place, he found a snake that took up residence under a step at the side door. Each time the family visited, he would allow us to handle the garden snake for a short time, but then were told that the snake needed rest and to put it back. For those who did not share his love of his "pet," he would take particular delight in seeing them squirm when he lifted the snake up for a closer look.
In 1998, the doctors discovered that Wes had lymphoma, for which he received chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The cancer resurfaced in 2004 and again he went for chemotherapy, but this terrible disease eventually won out. For the last few months, Helen nursed him around the clock tirelessly, in his own home, which was a comfort to him. He died quietly, with his wife at his side.
Wes has had a big impact on many lives; he was a principle-based leader who led by example. I'd like to honour his memory by passing his love, his sense of duty and his commitment, to our own family, Friends and community. That would make Wes proud.
Paul is Wes's stepson.

Reginald Charles ROSE " Reg"
By Anne ROSE, Friday, January 7, 2005 - Page A16
Husband, father, grandpa, priest, politician, world traveller. Born June 5, 1930, in Halifax, Nova Scotia Died September 28, 2004, of cancer, in Campbellford, Ontario, aged 74.
Reg ROSE was a man who was bound to faith and family his entire life. His sister Jeanne recalled that as young children growing up in Halifax, they would often play-act what they wanted to be when they grew up. Unlike most boys who aspired to be policemen or sailors, Reg would act out the role of minister, preaching to his playmates from his parents' front porch. Though he would have many opportunities to follow different professional paths, it seemed that he was destined to fulfill those early aspirations.
Initially, Reg studied to be an actuary, but his father's untimely death forced him to end his studies. Later, Reg and his new wife Jean MITCHELL moved to Toronto, where he studied theology at Wycliffe College and was eventually ordained an Anglican priest.
While the life of a priest often involves many household moves, Reg and Jean were able to set down roots in Port Perry, Ontario, for 17 years, allowing their children, James, Anne, and Mary, to grow up in "one home." It was not until the youngest finished high school that they moved on to the parish of St. Olave's in west Toronto.
No matter where he lived, Reg was involved in his community. In Port Perry, he served as a municipal politician, sharing his sense of social responsibility and clear thinking with the greater community. Yet, when ultimately forced to choose between his political work and that of a parish priest, Reg chose his church. When he moved to Toronto, Reg immersed himself in his new community and served as president of Anglican Houses -- now known as L.O.F.T. Community Services -- an organization that provides housing and outreach services to those in need.
Reg was a supporter of the Conservative party, but enjoyed respect across the political spectrum. One New Democratic Party friend wrote that Reg was simply "too nice" to be a Tory. In 1992, nominated by Senator Anne COOLS, he received the Commemorative Medal of the 125th Anniversary of Confederation in recognition of his community contributions.
Reg is remembered as an excellent preacher who never used notes, no doubt due in some small measure to those early rehearsals on the family front porch. He did not restrict his message to the pulpit; many will recall the elaborate puppet shows that Reg and Jean, together with their Friends, performed over the Christmas season for many years.
A clergyman's salary is by no means a rich one, but Reg and Jean were able to fulfill their love of travel -- from early family camping trips, a 1976 European trip with their teenage children, to the frequent international excursions they took as a couple. Over the years, they brought back many cherished memories and keepsakes. Perhaps the most meaningful was the bottle of water drawn from the Jordan River in the late 1970s that he used to dilute baptismal water. Every child thereafter was christened with this special water, including his seven grandchildren.
Jean, his children and grandchildren meant the world to Reg. He enjoyed nothing more than being with them, whether at the table or by the pool, usually with a glass of wine in hand. You knew all was well with Reg when he shook with laughter, as only he could.
Reg was diagnosed with terminal cancer in early May. When asked by his friend Nigel HARVEY how he felt about having to face his death, all he had to say was that he was "disappointed." He was sure of his faith and content with his life. To the end, he shared with all of us the journeys and joys of his family and life.
Anne ROSE is Reg's daughter.

DEA, John Roderick (May 15, 1950-July 4, 2005)
Surrounded by the love of his family, John passed peacefully from this world into a world without cancer. His valiant three year fight was a source of inspiration and wonder for everyone who knew him. John was predeceased by his father Thomas, and Connie's mother Mary ROSE. For his wife Connie, his mother Lucy, his sisters Sandra and Diana (Kelvin), nieces Katherine, Heather, Natalie (Darcy), Dawn Marie (Dean), nephews Ben, Jamie, Nick, David and James (Tracey), sisters-in-law Lois, Carol Ann, and Lorraine (Tom), his passing leaves an emptiness beyond knowing, but also a wellspring of happy memories that will stay with them in the years to come.
The many people who knew John in his career as Project Manager in construction design and development will remember him for the expertise and passion he brought to his work.
With his devoted wife and best friend Connie, and their faithful shepherd Angus, John spent his final three years on Nova Scotia's beautiful south shore, a place he truly loved.
Cremation has taken place. There will be a gathering to remember John on Saturday July 9th, 2005 at 1 p.m. at the LaHave District Firehall. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Palliative Care Unit, Victoria General Hospital, Halifax Nova Scotia, or to a Palliative Care Service in your community.
'We give you ships and tides and men
Anchors aweigh and wind-filled sail
We give you back the sea again
In sailor's songs and rousing tale
And inland where the dark hills rise
Between you and the salt-thick foam
You hear the surf, the seagulls' cries
And eastward turn your heart towards home.'

He worked for nearly a decade as their Resident Architect located in Owensboro, Kentucky; Greenville, South Carolina; and Des Moines, Iowa. He was project manager for the Master Plan of the State University of New York at Buffalo and Job Captain for the Fine Arts Building at the State University of New York College at Oswego, New York. While at Skidmore he also researched and designed a moveable partition system which later became an industry standard. In 1966 John returned to Canada. He worked for Marani Rounthwaite & Dick in Toronto prior to joining the University of Waterloo (Ontario) in 1967. He was at Waterloo for 25 years, until his retirement as the Architectural Program Administrator for the Co-operative Education. He found great delight in challenging and mentoring the architectural students in the practical side of architecture, encouraging them to take co-op positions in locales far from home, such as Scandinavia, England, Europe, the Caribbean, and with some of the most successful firms in the United States. He advised the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology and Texas A&M University on the establishment and development of cooperative educational programs. He maintained a small private residential practice, designing homes in Waterloo, Flesherton, Talisman Ski Resort (Ontario) and in Boone, North Carolina. He also designed renovations in Toronto and elsewhere in Ontario, one of which received an Award of Merit from Heritage Cambridge. John was very active in the architectural profession and in his church. He was known for his sense of fairness and professionalism. He had been Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Toronto Chapter of the Ontario Association of Architects, member of the Committee of Examiners of the Ontario Association of Architects from 1973-2001 and its Chairman from 1976-2001 (now the Canadian Architectural Certification Board), and Chairman of the Committee of Examiners, Ontario Advisory Committee,Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Syllabus; he chaired the 1970 Convention of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada held in Toronto. He was a member of the Commonwealth Association of Architects Educational Panel. His many years of leadership and service brought him two awards of which he was very proud. In 1984 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, the highest honour a Canadian Architect can receive. In 1987 he was the 3rd recipient of the Order of da Vinci awarded to those who have made 'significant contributions' to the profession in Ontario. He served as a member of the Board of Managers of Rosedale Presbyterian Church (Toronto), a church he had attended since university. While in New York, John had enjoyed being a member of the Mendelsohn Men's Chorus and thus was thrilled when Rosedale invited him to join the choir for a performance of Handel's 'Messiah'. John had been Chairman for 19 years of the Committee on Church Architecture for the Presbyterian Church in Canada, which won a Premier's Award for Accessibility (1986) for their handbook of standards and accessibility guidelines for church architecture. A funeral service will be held at Rosedale Presbyterian Church, 129 South Drive (corner of South Drive and Mt. Pleasant Road - tel: 416-921-1931) on Saturday, September 17 at 11 a.m. A reception will follow in the church hall.

BARRICK, Ishbel Mary (HOLMAN)
Raised in Toronto, the eldest of two, Ishbel spent many a summer at Wasaga Beach as well as winters in Collingwood. Through a chance meeting on a neighbourhood tennis court, she met Frank BARRICK, her husband-to-be. Following his air force service, Frank's career took them west to Winnipeg, Vancouver and finally they settled in Victoria where they built their own home in 1958.
Ishbel, or "Ish", her close Friends called her at times, was an avid camper, square-dancing belle, bowling champion, sewing wizard, and more. She was a sport fanatic - baseball, golf, football - but especially hockey - the Leafs could do no wrong! Ishbel was an optimist and an adventurer. There was nothing she wouldn't attempt except riding horses.
A mentor, listener and advice-giver only when asked, Ishbel was always firm but caring. Vivacious and joyful, she lived with the full colour palette and saw beauty everywhere. She was a voracious reader, geranium growing guru, crossword puzzle addict, bridge genius, homemaker extraordinaire, generous hostess and a stickler for being on time.
She cultivated Friends everywhere. She spent many happy hours at the Monterey Centre with the "ladies of the round table." But she also accumulated losses. She lost her brother, David HOLMAN, husband, Frank and many close relatives and Friends. Curious, open-minded and compassionate, Ishbel was engaged with world events and ideas until the past six months. She was born in Parkhill, Ontario, on June 30, 1919. September 14, 2005, our lives all changed with her death, but she did not depart. Ishbel still lives among us; she resides in our hearts.
Greatly missed by daughter Irene (PITT,) son Bruce (Diane,) grandchildren Bryan and Teresa PITT, and Michael BARRICK; the HOLMAN and BARRICK families of Ontario, cousins, nieces, nephews, Jody GRAINGER, Iain ROSE, Stuart PITT, many good Friends, and staff of Beacon Hill Villa.
Ishbel was an outstanding example of all that Friendship represents. Daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend, Grandmother, neighbour, and mentor - the list has no end!
If so desired, donations in Ishbel's honour may be made to the Canadian Red Cross Society, 909 Fairfield Road, Victoria, British Columbia, V8V 3A3 (250) 382-2043.

GRAY/GREY, Peter Forbes (April 1933-September 2005)
After a brief, stoic battle with cancer, Peter leaves his wife of 46 years, Muriel May (née BEAUFIELD;) his son John Charles GRAY/GREY (San Diego;) daughter Susan M. GRAY/GREY (Halifax;) and brother John H. GRAY/GREY (La Châtre, France;) predeceased by his sister Mary Louise ROSE. Born in Windsor, Ontario, son of the late Mary A. GRAY/GREY (née HAWKEY) and John Campbell GRAY/GREY. Following his graduation from Nepean High School in Ottawa, Ontario, Peter embarked on several expeditions to the Canadian Arctic as a steward aboard the icebreaker D'Iberville. He gained a life-long appreciation and admiration of the North, its natives and their art. Peter graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa with a Bachelor of Science, Geology in 1957 and began work that summer with McNamara Construction, first in Belleville, Ontario, and soon after in Witless Bay, Newfoundland. It was there he had the good fortune of meeting his soon-to-be wife Muriel, who was working as a nurse in Saint John's. When they married in 1959, the United Church Minister insisted on knowing where Peter was from 'in Newfoundland' Windsor, Ontario was not acceptable and their marriage certificate states that Peter is from Witless Bay. Peter's experiences with roadbuilding and heavy equipment led him to join the Caterpillar Company first in Toronto in 1960 and later in Halifax in 1972 with Nova Scotia Tractor and Equipment. As General Sales Manager and later Vice-President Corporate Development, Peter was regarded as an excellent salesman and an inspiring manager. On a wine tasting trip to France in 1983, Peter was named a 'Hospitalier d'Honneur' by the Hospitaliers de Pomeral; it was a moment he truly prized. With retirement in July 1998, Peter's life was filled with the joy of a first grandchild (and 'best pal',) Oliver Peter DICKSON/DIXON and in 2001 Gunnar Eric GRAY/GREY. He also began the seven year commitment to the care of his ailing spouse. He was a fine man, full of love and generosity and we will miss him forever. Donations in Peter's name may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Visitation: Tuesday, October 4, 2005 from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. at J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia B3K 5C9.

Gordon LUNAN, Spy (1915-2005)
Named as a Soviet agent by Igor GOUZENKO, he maintained to the end that he did not mean to betray Canada, only to defeat Nazis, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, October 15, 2005, Page S9
As a left-leaning advertising copywriter, Gordon LUNAN would probably have ended his days in obscurity if Igor GOUZENKO, a cipher clerk in the Soviet embassy in Ottawa, had not defected in September, 1945, and offered him up as a trophy.
"He definitely passed information and acted as a go-between for the Soviets, as the Russians were called then," says historian Amy Knight. She interviewed Mr. LUNAN extensively for her forthcoming book, How the Cold War Began.
"He really didn't know what he was getting into" and the information he passed on was inconsequential, in her view. "He violated the law but he didn't do any harm to Canadian national security."
Compared with spies such as Kim Philby and Guy Burgess, Mr. LUNAN hardly rated as a threat, but his story is significant for what it reveals about the times and how Canadians responded to the news that we harboured Soviet spy rings during the Second World War.
David Gordon LUNAN was born in Scotland, one of four sons of a commercial traveller. When Gordon was 9, the family moved to London where his father was put in charge of persuading the public to buy Congoleum, a cheap substitute for linoleum. He did so well that the company tried to renegotiate his contract, a cheat that was not lost on his son, who tended even then to side with the underdog.
His father's earnings made it possible to send Gordon to Belmont, a feeder school for Mill Hill School, a non-conformist public school on the outskirts of London. A boarder from the age of 10, he liked school and did well, ending up as one of two head boys at Belmont. At Mill Hill, he was taught music, theatre and officer training along with standard school subjects.
He graduated at 17 in 1932 and immediately began an apprenticeship with the S.H. Benson advertising agency. It took him two years to secure a place in the copy department (where Dorothy Sayers had once toiled), becoming, at 20, the agency's youngest copywriter.
Meanwhile, fascism was on the rise in Germany, where Adolf Hitler became chancellor in 1933. The Soviet Union, ruled by Joseph Stalin, had joined the League of Nations in 1934 and become an active player in the fascist/anti-fascist political machinations. In 1935, Mussolini invaded Abyssinia from the adjacent Italian territory of Somaliland.
A year later, Mr. LUNAN visited Spain and saw the anti-democratic and repressive effects of General Francisco Franco's crusade to destroy the republican government. Back in England, where Sir Oswald Mosley was gathering momentum for his British Union of Fascists, Mr. LUNAN joined the anti-appeasement movement. He was convinced that another war was inevitable.
There were plenty of causes he could have joined in England. Instead, in 1938, he decided to immigrate to Canada and leave the political unease behind him.
He soon found a job with the A. McKim advertising agency in Montreal, took a lease on a large flat with Friends on what is now Aylmer Avenue and immersed himself in the city's left-wing artistic community. The Quebec of Premier Maurice Duplessis was rigidly authoritarian, overtly Catholic and rampantly anti-Semitic. This was the era of the infamous Padlock Law that allowed authorities to padlock the premises of any people suspected of communist connections.
Mr. LUNAN quickly turned from a left-leaning sympathizer into an activist, connected to communist groups and supporters of the Canadians who had formed the Mackenzie Papineau Battalion in 1936 and gone to fight for the republican cause in the Spanish Civil War.
He was part of a welcoming committee at Windsor Station for a train load of Mac-Paps returning from the Spanish Civil War in 1938. Anticipating that the reception might get out of hand, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the local press were out in force and Mr. LUNAN was snapped giving a clenched-fist salute.
In the spring of 1939, he met Phyllis NEWMAN, a Polish emigré. Their family backgrounds could not have been more different, but they espoused similar political causes and married months later, right after Britain declared war on Germany. Their only child was born in July, 1945.
About this time, he also met Fred ROSE, a union organizer and Communist Party member who, in 1945, would become the first person elected to the House of Commons on the Communist ticket. While Mr. LUNAN never joined the Communist Party, he certainly befriended members of the party and offered them space in his apartment for meetings.
In 1943, Mr. LUNAN enlisted in the Canadian Army as a private, earned a commission as a lieutenant a year later and was posted to Ottawa to the wartime information board. Mainly, he worked on Canadian Affairs, a newsletter providing a summary of Canadian news and editorials for troops stationed abroad and in Canada.
While he was in Ottawa, he met frequently with Mr. ROSE, who urged him to befriend Russians working at the embassy in Ottawa. Mr. LUNAN readily agreed and had a series of meetings with Colonel Rogov, who asked him to solicit information from scientists who were Soviet sympathizers.
Eager to oblige, Mr. LUNAN passed along whatever information he was able to glean and recruited others to the cause. "Far from damaging Canada," he wrote 50 years later in his memoirs, "my motive -- and I assumed it must have been theirs also -- was to help Canada by helping our most powerful and effective ally and thereby shortening the war."
He was promoted to captain in June, 1945, and sent to London by the Canadian Information Service. One of his supervisors described him as "a very ordinary, likeable chap with not too much imagination but very industrious."
The war was over in Europe, the first meeting of the General Assembly of the United Nations was about to take place in Westminster Central Hall in London. He was sent to Canada House in January, 1946, to help with the publicity and ended up working as a pinch-hitting speechwriter for Paul MARTIN Sr.
Back home, his world had begun to collapse. Mr. LUNAN later said that he knew he was in trouble as soon as he heard that Mr. GOUZENKO had defected and brought documentation with him about an extensive Soviet espionage network linking Canada, the United States and Britain and directed at finding information about the U.S. atomic-bomb program. Mr. GOUZENKO implicated Mr. LUNAN as a "recruiting agent" and the leader of a cell of three others who were passing information to Soviet intelligence on trends in Canadian politics and military weapons.
In February, 1946, Mr. LUNAN was summoned back to Ottawa for "an important assignment." After his plane landed in Montreal, he was surrounded and restrained by three men in plain clothes, frisked and taken to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police barracks in Rockcliffe, a suburb of Ottawa. Two days later he was read a detailed surveillance record dating back to 1939 and a list of alleged co-conspirators.
Civil liberties were trampled on in the round-ups and detentions at that time, says Wesley WARK, a specialist in Canadian security and intelligence. Most of the detainees were woken up in dawn raids, denied access to lawyers and not cautioned about incriminating themselves. All of this was legal, says Prof. WARK, because Canada had not yet rescinded the War Measures Act, at least partly because of Mr. GOUZENKO's defection.
Mr. LUNAN confessed and implicated some of the men he had recruited. This was his biggest regret at the end of his life, said Prof. KNIGHT. "If you are a believer in the cause, the last thing you want to do is to implicate your fellow comrades. And he did."
Mr. LUNAN was convicted in November, 1946. Before his sentence was handed down, he told the judge: "I do not consider myself guilty of the charge either in law or in fact." Nevertheless, he spent the next five years in Kingston Penitentiary with extra time tacked on for refusing to testify in court about some of the colleagues he had implicated earlier.
His marriage held together while he was in prison, but fell apart quickly thereafter. He met his second wife, Miriam MAGEE, the love of his life, at the party thrown to celebrate his release from prison. They were married in Montreal, where Mr. LUNAN was again working in the advertising business.
He eventually opened his own agency and retired with his wife to the countryside near Ottawa in 1975. He spent the rest of his life growing strawberries, cooking gourmet meals, espousing social justice principles to his step-grandchildren, and writing two memoirs, The Making of a Spy (published in 1995) and Redhanded: Inside the Spy Ring that Changed the World (which he finished just before he died and which is being published this month by Optimum).
The major difference between the two books is an epilogue in the second one in which Mr. LUNAN explains, more explicitly than ever before, that he acted "naively, stupidly and admittedly outside the law" in the "best interests of winning the war against Nazism." He also acknowledges that the GOUZENKO affair helped trigger the Cold War and he expresses regret that he "played a part in making it happen so soon."
Not a huge mea culpa by most definitions. Still, Mr. LUNAN did serve his time for betraying his country, however ineffectually and naively. Only this past summer, he received his Royal Canadian Mounted Police dossier and learned they had been keeping tabs on him until the mid-1970s.
David Gordon LUNAN was born in Kirkaldy, Scotland, in 1915. He died in hospital in Hawkesbury, Ontario, on October 3 after suffering a fall. He was 90. He is survived by his daughter Jan CONDLIN, two stepsons and their families.

Marianne BLUGER, Poet: (1945-2005)
A victim of breast cancer, she died the day she published her 10th volume of poetry, titled The Eternities
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, November 25, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Marianne BLUGER wrote poetry because, as she once said, it was all she was ever good at. Only those very close to her know whether that bit of characteristic modesty was really true. The rest of us just know that she was a very, very good poet.
Although not a household name, Ms. BLUGER published 10 volumes of clean, precise, evocative verse ranging from intense lyrical poems to delicate, spare examples of haiku and tanka (traditionally, 31 syllables in five lines). She was among Canada's leading and most respected practitioners of Japanese poetic traditions, admittedly not a big community, but her work won a Canada Council Arts Award and the Archibald Lampman Award for Poetry. She had a strong following in the United States, where she won first prize in the annual Tanka Splendor contest, and in Japan, which honoured her with the Hoshito-Mori Prize.
She worked until the breast cancer, first diagnosed 13 years ago, claimed her, correcting her poems by ear as her husband read them at her bedside. She died on the day her 10th volume was launched in Toronto. It is titled The Eternities.
A deeply religious, even mystical Anglican, Ms. BLUGER also drew on her Jewish heritage, a long experience with Zen meditation, and western political activism. Her haikus and tanka have been likened to photographs or paintings, providing quick snapshots, but in three dimensions. Known for their Zen-like simplicity and grace, they describe mundane events such as highway driving and the onset of winter as things of beauty. As one critic said, they are about how to see.
"There was absolutely no B.S. in her work, no pretense at all," said Richard Stevenson, an old friend of Ms. BLUGER's who teaches poetry at Lethbridge Community College. "It was all stripped down to the barest elements. She made it look easy."
She wasn't published until 1981, when a collection titled The Thumbless Man is at the Piano made its appearance. She was 36 at the time. Other volumes included Gathering Wild (1987), Tamarack & Clearcut (1997), a book of haiku illustrated with photographs by Rudi Haas, and Scissor, Paper, Woman (2000). A 1998 volume, Gusts, was the first book-length collection of tanka published in Canada, and inspired a journal by the same name devoted entirely to the form.
"Hats off to you, Marianne, for showing the rest of us untutored louts how it's done," enthused Mr. Stevenson in reviewing this year's publication of Ms. BLUGER's book of tanka, Zen Mercies/Small Satoris. "This book, rightfully, should inspire generations of poets interested in the unvarnished, real McCoy."
Like this lean offering from Gusts:
In a ruined orchard
among drenched leaves
I found you these
mist-silvered
fat blue plums.
Mr. BLUGER's poems reflect a deep spirituality and connectedness to nature, notes Marilyn ROSE, a Brock University expert on 20th-century Canadian women poets. While John McCrae's In Flanders Fields has become a kind of anthem for these occasions, consider Ms. BLUGER's cut-to-the-bone haiku, Remembrance Day, from Early Evening Pieces (2003).
bagpipes wheeze
through the cenotaph mist
a thin line of vets
As Prof. ROSE points out, loss is conveyed in just three lines, 11 words and a single image. Economical? More than any editor would dare dream.
Don't be fooled, though. That sort of austerity takes passion, the same kind that drove her love for "that poor radical, Jeshua, the Christ" in The Eternities, which is mostly a homage to her father, Walter Vladimir BLUGER. A mathematician who died in 1986, her father was a convert to his wife's Anglicanism but did not divulge that he had been a Jewish Holocaust survivor until his daughter was an adult. Born in Berlin to parents who had fled Russian pogroms, he escaped to Britain but was interned in a prison camp. Two ships later took the inmates to safety, one vessel going to Canada and the other to Australia. The latter was sunk, with all aboard.
For a German Jew's daughter
how exactly was she to conduct the
business of life
when sipping a soda at the mall
she would feel fraught happiness
as some kind of criminal failure
of consciousness
Add Zen to the mix. In the late 1960s, Ms. BLUGER dropped out of medical school to marry a Korean refugee and Zen master. That was after she had turned down an offer to study philosophy at Oxford following her graduation from McGill University, where she befriended the poet Louis Dudek.
Though meditation and Zen's stillness appealed to her and influenced her work, the troubled marriage didn't last. Her poem, The Zen Master's Wife, hinted at the trauma.
On the other hand, a robust personality seemed to become even fuller:
On my personal
Jewish Zen Christian
Calendar
every day Pesah
every day Easter
As for making a living, Ms. BLUGER spent 25 years administering the Ottawa-based Canadian Writers' Foundation, which provides assistance to authors in financial need.
It was only in her late 30s that she came to see her talent as God-given.
"Poetry moves me to a kind of reverence," she once wrote. "When I engage with poetry, I become contemplative and mystically transported to a deeper awareness, to a kind of enlivened, prayerful consciousness and to gratitude...
"Poetry soothes and heals me... all I am any good at is poems."
In 1991, she married Larry NEILY, an avid birder and fellow nature lover whose on-line updates on his wife's failing health during her last two months moved readers to tears.
Ms. BLUGER co-founded Christians Against Apartheid and the Tabitha Foundation, which brings humanitarian aid to Cambodia and has helped thousands of women there set up small businesses. She ran her Ottawa church's Sunday school for years, and visited the sick and elderly.
Not much frightened her, says Mr. NEILY, "but she was often bought to tears by the meanness of other people."
She did, however, see mostly good in people, recalls fellow Ottawa poet Ronnie R. BROWN. " She was happiest to acknowledge people and tell them she cared for them. I never saw anyone face death with such radiance. She profoundly believed she would meet with us later and that her work would live on. And it will."
Indeed, a posthumous volume, Nude With Scar -- the manuscript she edited on her deathbed -- is due out next year.
Marianne Sasha Bluger NEILY was born in Ottawa on August 28, 1945, and died there of cancer on October 29, 2005. She was 60. She leaves her husband, her mother, two children, one grandchild and three siblings.

Stabbings kill woman, 62, injure daughter
Neighbours watch in horror through patio door as woman attacked
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
A Toronto family that spans five generations has to find a way to go on without their "Nana" after she was stabbed to death in an incident that also left her daughter critically injured.
The man who attacked them was shot dead minutes later by Toronto police.
Just before that, a teenage girl described by family members as the dead woman's granddaughter escaped death when a group of neighbours fought off the attacker's attempt to drag her back inside a townhouse at 1898 Sheppard Ave. W. near Jane St.
Pandora WHITE/WHYTE, 62, was killed late Friday in her home by her adoptive brother, Ucal LAUZON, 34, family members and neighbours said as they gathered outside the home yesterday.
"We lost the major link to a chain, the major source to a family that stays together," said Kathleen MILLINGTON, a family member who spoke to the Star outside the neat townhouse where WHITE/WHYTE lived with her granddaughter, Rochelle.
Horrified neighbours watched shortly after 10: 30 p.m. Friday as the man they identified as Lauzon, described by family members as an adoptive brother, stabbed WHITE/WHYTE's daughter Marcia ALLYNE, 37, just metres away on the other side of a glass sliding door.
A neighbour who wanted to be identified only as Kevin said he couldn't see a knife, but Lauzon struck Allyne repeatedly with an object.
"(Allyne) fought (back)," Kevin said. "I really respected that."
Minutes later, Lauzon was shot dead by police officers who arrived on the scene, neighbours said. He was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook hospital early yesterday.
Neighbours in the townhouse complex said they heard officers shout to Lauzon to drop his weapon several times before he was shot.
The provincial Special Investigations Unit, which probes civilian deaths involving police, is taking over the investigation.
A press release from the Special Investigations Unit said police officers arrived at approximately 11: 02 p.m. and found Allyne lying outside the house with "serious stab wounds."
"A Toronto Police Service officer was involved in a confrontation with a 34-year-old man, resulting in shots being fired."
Allyne is in critical condition at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre.
MILLINGTON told reporters WHITE/WHYTE was a "law-abiding citizen" and said the incident had nothing to do with drugs or any other kind of crime. "... I want that stated," she said.
Neighbours said Rochelle was in the house when the violence started and tried twice to get out.
The first time Lauzon dragged her back inside in front of horrified onlookers.
When she escaped a second time, she was taken inside the home of neighbour Zolikha WARDAK, whose family phoned 911.
"She was (covered) in so much blood, I thought she was hurt, too," WARDAK said.
Rochelle told her she had been in her bedroom when she heard an argument downstairs, WARDAK said.
The teen said she ran down to find WHITE/WHYTE on the couch, covered in blood.
Rochelle told WARDAK she had blood on her because she ran to WHITE/WHYTE and hugged her.
The teen told WARDAK that Lauzon was there and she tried to get away from him.
A neighbour who asked not to be identified said he was in his yard when he heard Rochelle screaming.
"I saw her come out," he said. "She came to us... She was trying to slide behind us."
He said Lauzon came out after her. "She started running. He was trying to grab her."
Rochelle tripped and fell, he said, and Lauzon dragged her inside.
"Moments later, she ran out again. So this time, we defended her."
He said that about half a dozen men from the neighbourhood formed a barrier between Lauzon and Rochelle.
Lauzon gave up and went back into the house, he said. Some of the men ran to WHITE/WHYTE's door and tried unsuccessfully to get inside.
WHITE/WHYTE was a registered nurse who worked with senior citizens, said Annette WALTERS- MILLINGTON, one of her three daughters.
WHITE/WHYTE also leaves her mother, 77, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
WHITE/WHYTE had lived in the community for more than 20 years and was loved by everyone, said a distraught Annette WALTERS- MILLINGTON, WHITE/WHYTE's daughter.
"Anybody that knows her calls her Nana...," Kevin said. "That's what we called her, out of respect."

Action urged in heat death
By Alejandro BUSTOS, Staff Reporter
Poverty, brutal summer heat and a lack of city regulations killed a man last week, activists say. Richard HOWELL, who lived in a boarding house in the west end, "died of heat-related" causes, the Toronto Disaster Relief Committee said yesterday.
Social advocates held a news conference to demand a coroner's inquest.
An inquest would "discover how it is possible that a man can live in government-supported housing, paid for with his government disability cheque... and still die for the price of an air conditioner," said Bob ROSE, project co-ordinator for the Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre, where HOWELL used to go.
On June 29, the day HOWELL died, humidity made the temperature feel like 37°C, according to Environment Canada.
Dr. James EDWARDS, supervisor coroner for Toronto east, told the Star last week that the death of a man on June 29 "was probably related to the heat, although we can't say that definitively at this stage in our investigation." But he said he couldn't comment on any specific death when asked about HOWELL. Activists also called on the city to introduce a bylaw that would control temperatures in residential dwellings during the summer.
Councillor Mike FELDMAN (Ward 10, York Centre) said that while this bylaw may seem like a good idea, it is not feasible to refit buildings, many of them older than 50 years, with air conditioning.
"I'm trying to be realistic," the city's deputy mayor said. "Yeah, it's a nice idea. But is it economically possible? I've got a list of 70,000 people who are just waiting for social housing," he said.

BARRICK, Ishbel Mary (HOLMAN)
Raised in Toronto, the eldest of two, Ishbel spent many a summer at Wasaga Beach as well as winters in Collingwood. Through a chance meeting on a neighbourhood tennis court, she met Frank BARRICK, her husband-to-be. Following his air force service, Frank's career took them west to Winnipeg, Vancouver and finally they settled in Victoria where they built their own home in 1958. Ishbel, or "Ish", her close Friends called her at times, was an avid camper, square-dancing belle, bowling champion, sewing wizard, and more. She was a sport fanatic - baseball, golf, football - but especially hockey - the Leafs could do no wrong! Ishbel was an optimist and an adventurer. There was nothing she wouldn't attempt except riding horses. A mentor, listener and advice-giver only when asked, Ishbel was always firm but caring. Vivacious and joyful, she lived with the full colour palette and saw beauty everywhere. She was a voracious reader, geranium growing guru, crossword puzzle addict, bridge genius, homemaker extraordinaire, generous hostess and a stickler for being on time. She cultivated Friends everywhere. She spent many happy hours at the Monterey Centre with the ladies of the round table. But she also accumulated losses. She lost her brother, David Holman, husband, Frank and many close relatives and Friends. Curious, open-minded and compassionate, Ishbel was engaged with world events and ideas until the past six months. She was born in Parkhill, Ontario, on June 30, 1919. September 14, 2005, our lives all changed with her death, but she did not depart. Ishbel still lives among us; she resides in our hearts. Greatly missed by daughter Irene (PITT,) son Bruce (Diane,) grandchildren Bryan and Teresa PITT, and Michael BARRICK the HOLMAN and BARRICK families of Ontario, cousins, nieces, nephews, Jody GRAINGER, Iain ROSE, Stuart PITT, many good Friends, and staff of Beacon Hill Villa. Ishbel was an outstanding exampleof all that Friendship represents. Daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend, Grandmother, neighbour, and mentor - the list has no end!If so desired, donations in Ishbel's honour may be made to the Canadian Red Cross Society, 909 Fairfield Road, Victoria, British Columbia, V8V 3A3 (250) 382-2043.

North York man fatally stabbed
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter, With files from Amy BROWN- BOWERS
A quiet North York neighbourhood was pierced by the screams of a dying man Saturday after a violent clash in a penthouse apartment.
Shane Barrington ROSE, 30, died in hospital after he ran from a building on Harrison Garden Blvd., near Yonge Street, and Sheppard Ave. E. He died of a stab wound to the chest, an autopsy revealed.
Another man, believed to be from the same apartment, was taken to hospital with beating injuries and later released.
ROSE apparently fled the apartment where he was attacked, took an elevator downstairs and ran outside for help, where he collapsed, police said.
A resident who lives below the penthouse said he heard the "ruckus" as officers tried to save the man, and a woman, believed to be his girlfriend, begged police for information.
Most of the units in the condo building are owned by investors and rented out, he said. "That's why we have a lot of younger people in here," said the man who wouldn't give his name.
Meanwhile, police have announced that a 70-year-old woman has died nearly two months after being stabbed in a North York townhouse.
A 29-year-old man walked into a police station September 19 to say he had stabbed someone at a townhouse on Wilson Ave. between Bathurst St. and Allen Rd. When police went to the home, they found Bernice LIM suffering from stab wounds. She was taken to Sunnybrook hospital and died of her injuries Saturday.
Roel VINTAYEN of Toronto was originally charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and having a weapon.
