Peacefully, on September 12, 2005, surrounded by her family, Gert passed away after a courageous battle with cancer.

She had one brother, Morton, who died at age 16 in 1941. Gert and Nathan had 4 children, Shelley, Morton, Phyllis and Richard. They enjoyed living on McAdam Avenue, travelling the world, summers at Winnipeg Beach, dancing on the Moonlight train, golf, bridge and winters in Palm Springs. They were blessed with a loving and close group of Friends that lasted throughout Gert's lifetime. Gert was an accomplished pianist, golfer and bridge player. She attained her diploma from the Toronto Conservatory of Music (ATCM.) She was a life member of Hadassah-Wizo, and her Jewish heritage played a central role throughout her life. She was the heart of our Shabbat dinners, traditions and holidays. We will always remember her wonderful smile, her delicious meals, her emphasis on family gatherings and we will always cherish the times spent together. Gert will always be remembered with great love and much affection by her children, Aubie RUSEN, Phyllis and Marvin SHENKAROW, Richard STALL and Lisa BERGER; her grandchildren, Sara and Howie, Janis and Jeff, Marnie, Lori and Jeff, Michelle and Laurence, Morris and Rana, Nathan, Jacob, Benjamin, and Rosa her great-grandchildren, Benjamin, Hannah, Anna, Noah, Matthew, Natasha, Gillian, Sydney, Samuel, Tyler, Samantha and Abbie. Tragically, she was predeceased by two of her children, her son Morton in 1963, and her daughter Shelley RUSEN in May, 2005. Throughout her life, her dignity, strength and courage were an inspiration to her family. Her values will live in our hearts forever. The family greatly appreciates the care and support extended to her by her caregivers who enabled her to remain at home and enjoy the last years of her life. A special thank you to Dr. Jack RUSEN for his care and compassion. In addition, we are grateful to CancerCare Manitoba for their many acts of kindness.

TORRIE, Allan Macdonald, M.D., C.C.F.P.
(September 26, 1922 To August 20, 2005)
A small town family physician, Allan MacDonald TORRIE of Kenora, Ontario died Saturday at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital which he had served as a physician and volunteer for over half a century. Enlisting in the Navy in 1941 from a farm in Gibbs, Saskatchewan, he met and married, Greta, the love of his life, in Halifax during the war. He later graduated in the first post-war medical class (1951) from the University of Manitoba. In his life he balanced an old style medical practice that included surgery, office work, house calls, emergency on-call, an incessant telephone and weekend work, with summers on the Lake of the Woods and 'The Island', cross-country skiing, growing plants, travel with his beloved Greta, raising Highland cows, delighting in his grandchildren, new ideas and learning. His vocation as a family physician coincided with the beginnings of the self-help movement for alcohol addiction. This was also the period of new alcohol related health and social problems of the Anishinaabe people. Over time, his medical practice became focussed on emotional problems, psychiatric illnesses and alcohol and drug addiction problems as well as the delivery of health services in the community and province. From the mid 1960s, and contrary to the received institutional approaches of the time, he fought for community-centered approaches to social problems. He directed an innovative pilot project of the Addiction Research Foundation targeting the rampant public drunkenness in Kenora with an approach that focussed on selfhelp. This evolved into the first Kenora Pow-Wow Club as a cultural approach to addictions. Later in the mid 1970s, he spearheaded an innovation at the Kenora Hospital which has now become commonplace: to have the province fund a traditional healer as part of the Hospital services. In the 1990s he was Medical Advisor to a program treating chronic solvent abusers with traditional therapies. He had been recognised as an Honourary Elder of a number of First Nations. An advocate of life-long learning, in the 1980s he promoted and coordinated student placements into the small hospital, family practice setting of Kenora for the Universities of Manitoba, McMaster and Dundee (Scotland), and in the 1990s, he coordinated cross-cultural workshops with Health Sciences North for family medicine residents. He had always promoted a team approach in health care and, as Chief of Staff in 1984, was quoted saying that the one deficiency in quality assurance surveys was that they 'do not measure attitudes of the staff towards other members of the staff and towards patients.' His commitment to the community is evident through his decades of volunteer work at the provincial, regional and local levels. A member since 1951 of the Canadian Medical Association, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (Charter and Life Member) and the Ontario Medical Association (Life Member), he was recognised with the Glenn Sawyer Award in 1992 for over 23 years of active volunteer work for the Ontario Medical Association which ended with his work with the Northwestern Ontario Committee to study the implementation of the Graham Report. His many and varied services to the community included more than three decades of work as Medical Advisor and program developer for the Kenora Community Mental Health Program. He gave more than half a century of service to the Hospital as a family physician, an anaesthetist, and as the founder of the regional psychiatric ward. He gave as many years as a Hospital volunteer serving as Chief of Staff, President of the Medical Staff, and on the Advisory Committee and as Medical Advisor to the Native Healer Program and Medical Advisor to the Solvent Abuse Treatment Program. He was an Ontario Coroner for several decades. After his retirement from active practice and until just before his death, he served as Medical Advisor: to the Kenora Health Access Centre of the Association of Kenora Chiefs, to the Nimishomis-Nokomis Healing Group, as well as to Migisi Treatment Centre. He also sat on the Mercury Disability Board. A curler who had perhaps played two or three hockey games in his life, he was proud to have been inducted into the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame in recognition of his voluntary work as team physician to the Kenora Thistles Hockey Club from 1951 to 1960. Survived by his wife of 61 years, Greta (WELLAND;) three children: Jill (Ignatius LA RUSIC) of Montreal, Susan (Theo) of Kenora and Robert (Shelley) of Kenora his darling grand-daughter Jayme of Kenora; his four grand_sons: Jeremy (Tanya BRUNET,) Jordan and Jonathan, all of Winnipeg and Kyle of Kenora; three great-grandchildren; three brothers: James (Phyllis) of Calgary, Stewart (Lillian) of Medicine Hat and Bartley of Medicine Hat; as well as cousins and in-laws. Funeral August 24, 2005 at St. Alban's Cathedral, Kenora. Pallbearers will be his grandchildren: Jeremy, Jordan, Jonathan, Jayme and Kyle and Lee BLYTH, a family friend and link to the Thistles. If wished, donations may be made to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation, 21 Sylvan Street, W., Kenora, Ontario P9N 3Y7.

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...."

Patient at centre of hospital dispute dies
By James RUSK, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page A11
Christopher BLUE, a frail 71-year-old man who was forcibly discharged under police escort from Toronto General Hospital on January 7, died Wednesday night at Sunnybrook hospital after being taken off life support, a friend speaking for the family said yesterday.
His care at Toronto General had become the centre of a dispute between his family and the hospital, which reached the point that the two sides communicated other through their lawyers.
Mr. BLUE, who had a number of incurable conditions, suffered a stroke at Thanksgiving and was taken to Toronto General. After three months, a letter from a hospital lawyer ordered him discharged.
He was taken by private ambulance to his Scarborough home, where a Toronto Emergency Services ambulance was waiting. It took him to Sunnybrook, which admitted him.

By James RUSK, Monday, April 25, 2005, Page A1
Last year, four young children tragically lost their father to cancer.
Early yesterday morning, their still-grieving mother, encouraged by Friends to join them at a birthday party, was caught in a frenzy of gunfire outside a North Toronto nightclub.
Livette Olivea MOORE, 26, was killed, leaving three boys and girl, all under 10 years old.
Her distraught father, Amos REID, clutched a photo of his daughter in his arms, struggling under the weight of her death, telling CTV News "she was my daughter and my friend, my daughter and my friend."
"I talked to the Creator this morning, and only he knows what's going on to this young generation," Mr. REID said.
"They've got to change their style. It's not good. It's killing us, big time," he said
Ms. MOORE died when she was caught in the gunfire about 3: 30 a.m. yesterday at a birthday party attended by about 200 people at the Prestige Palace restaurant on Milvan Drive in the Finch Avenue and Weston Road area.
"We've lost a young lady, one of our citizens, that was here to enjoy a party, and she's been gunned down in an early part of her life. It's just disgusting," Detective Wayne BANKS of the Toronto police told reporters outside the nightclub yesterday afternoon.
He said he could not yet explain the crime. "We've obviously had some kind of gunplay that's gone on. We've had a young lady lose her life, and several other people shot. What the motive is or what happened -- it's way too early in the investigation to determine that."
Six other people were also shot in the fracas, and gunfire was still being heard in the vicinity of the club when police and paramedics arrived shortly after 4 a.m., police said in a statement last night.
When the police and paramedics arrived, they found two victims inside the club with gunshot wounds. One of them, Ms. MOORE, died at the scene, while the second was taken to Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre with non-life-threatening injuries.
"While the investigation was ongoing, five other victims attended on their own to various Greater Toronto Area hospitals with gunshot wounds. These victims are currently being treated for various injuries, but none are considered to be life threatening," police said.
Police are not releasing the identity of any of the surviving victims.
They are reportedly seeking two suspects in the shooting.
At the same time as the shooting at the Prestige Palace, there was a shooting outside the Film Lounge, a club on Dundas Street West near Spadina Avenue.
A 33-year-old man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

CLIFFORD, Tom -- Dispatch:
By James RUSK, Saturday, April 30, 2005, Page M6
Tom CLIFFORD was one of the last remaining exemplars of the sort of politician that once dominated city politics: Anglo-Saxon, blue-collar Toronto in origin; staunch monarchist, temperance crusader and churchgoer in belief and practice.
"He was reflective of a different time period, different economy, different population, when the traditional working class was the major economic element in this city," says deputy mayor Joe PANTALONE, a 25-year political veteran whose council career overlapped with the last decade of Mr. CLIFFORD's 27 years on the Toronto Board of Education and city council. "With Tom CLIFFORD, we are seeing the passing of one of the remaining political leadership elements from that era," he says.
Mr. CLIFFORD died last Saturday at the age of 81 after being diagnosed with leukemia two months ago.
Over the years, Mr. CLIFFORD, who represented a Riverdale ward, served on Metro council, the harbour commission, the board of Toronto Hydro and as chairman of every standing committee on Toronto council.
He was born above his grandfather's grocery store at Pape and Gerrard and ran the store after he returned home from service in the army during the Second World War. A lifetime bachelor, he lived in the building for most of his life.
"Tom CLIFFORD was as local as you can get, in terms of relationship with individuals," Mr. PANTALONE says.
Former councillor Betty DISERO describes Mr. CLIFFORD as soft-spoken, generous, kind and always a gentleman. "There was a whole kind of gentleman's club of politicians, absolutely. When I arrived there in 1985, out of 23 members of council, six were women."
He was smart, she says. "But sometimes he was a little bit mischievous because he didn't let on how smart he was."
And "he was a Tory, and he let everybody know it," Ms. DISERO says. In fact, he ran for the federal Progressive Conservatives in Broadview-Greenwood in 1972 and in a 1978 by-election, in which a political newcomer named Bob Rae nosed by him with a margin of only 88 votes.
