WILSON, Dorothy Tamar (formerly RICHARDSON, née BRACKENBURY)
Dorothy Tamar WILSON, Wednesday, February 2, 2005, Dorothy WILSON of Tillsonburg slipped peacefully into the arms of the Lord and her loving family in Heaven. She was 3 weeks from her 89th birthday. Born and raised in Lakeview, she was the daughter of Frank and Mabel (CHUTE) BRACKENBURY. Dorothy lived a long and fulfilling life. She entered Nurse's Training but was unable to complete due to illness. However, she continued interest in health and medicines and was known for her healing creams which she gave to everyone. She was Post mistress in Thamesford for 20 years. After retiring to Aylmer in 1976 she devoted her time to producing beautiful flowers in her gardens, caring for her mother and traveling with Tom. Like her brother Paul she had a strong interest in her family history. Dorothy was a loyal member of North Broadway Baptist Church, W.M.F. and Plus 50. She was always concerned about the welfare of her Friends and family and was generous to all of them. She loved knitting and gave away baby shawls and many pairs of mittens for children. She will be missed deeply by all her Friends and her surviving family.
She was a wonderful mother to Ken and Ferne RICHARDSON of Merrickville and Marian and Robert SMITH of Tillsonburg and a loving grandmother to Andrew and Karen RICHARDSON, Christine SMITH and Robin VERKUIL. Her surviving sisters are Betty SHERER of Tennessee, Barbara CLARKE of Burlington, Mary DANBROOK and Keith of Tillsonburg, Lois TAILOR/TAYLOR and George of Ottawa, Gloria Gibson and Paul of Hamilton, Diana ANDERSON and Bernie HOLDEN of Vienna, Shirley BRACKENBURY and Irene BRACKENBURY and Bill VANDENEECKHOUT of Tillsonburg and Aunt Ruby BRACKENBURY of Aylmer and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Dorothy lost both her brothers, Larry BRACKENBURY (1971) and Paul BRACKENBURY (Jan. 14/05.) She also outlived husbands Norman RICHARDSON (1967,) Doug WILSON (1971) and Thomas DARLISON (1992). Cremation has taken place and memorial service is to be held at North Broadway Baptist Church on Sunday February 6, 2005 at 3: 00 p.m. Donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or North Broadway Baptist Church in lieu of flowers or by contacting Ostranders Funeral Home, 43 Bidwell Street, Tillsonburg (842-5221) who are entrusted with funeral arrangements.

KIDNER, John Joseph
My beloved husband, John Joseph KIDNER, affectionately known as the "Wood Guy," slipped away during the early hours of December 17th, 2005. He was at home surrounded by those that loved him deeply. John was in his 58th year. John was cherished husband of Janice CASE, and loving brother of Cindy and Harry VERKUYL. Dear father to Mark, Brett and Michelle EMMERTON. John was the son of Jack KIDNER and Helen KNOTT, both deceased. John was a man of many hats, some might remember him through athletics at Western and teaching high school in his early years; in later years, others knew him as a stockbroker and as an athlete with a profound (some might say irrational) love of golf. He nurtured a lifelong love of nature and canoeing through the wilderness. In recent years his greatest joy and passion (besides Janice) was working with wood. He often joked about growing up to be Norm Abrams of New Yankee Workshop fame. Since 2001, John spent most of his days in his workshop. He became a consummate craftsman creating an amazing legacy of wooden treasures for family and Friends. He is survived by his in-laws, Grant and Betty CASE; Jim and Jane CASE and their children, Sarah and Sean; niece Cynthia CASE and her fiancée Frederick GAGNON; nieces, Michelle, Angela and Robyn VERKUYL; John and Mary CASE and their sons, Matthew, Andrew and Patrick. He was much loved for his sense of humor, dry wit, fun and sense of adventure. John never lost touch of the boy within. In accordance to his wishes, cremation has already taken place. Those who wish to celebrate John's life should leave January 21st open. We are planning an afternoon of quiet reflection and sharing to be followed by a lively event in celebration of John's birthday and in memory of his life. Please enquire for details. The family requests no flowers, but donations in memoriam can be made to the charity of your choice.

WILSON, Elizabeth "Betty" Agnes (née HEFFORD/ TOON)
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Elizabeth (Betty) Agnes WILSON (née HEFFORD/ TOON) wife, sister, mother, aunt, cousin, grandmother, greatgrandmother, friend and lady. Betty died peacefully on September 18th, 2005 at Princess Margaret Hospital at the age of eighty-one surrounded by her loving husband and family. Betty was born July 28, 1924 at Toronto, Ontario. Betty is survived by her husband of 37 years William (Bill) G. WILSON, her son and daughter in law, Garry and Karyn TOON and her daughter, Elizabeth TOON, her four stepsons and their partners: Tony and Susan, George and Myrna, Kevin and Denise, and Scott WILSON, as well as her grandchildren: Maryrose VERNER (née COLEMAN,) Robert COLEMAN, Emily REA (née COLEMAN), Kali COLEMAN; Joanne, Robert, Danielle Mae and Geordie TOON; Emma, Craig, Kelly, Kevin and Christopher WILSON; her brother and sister-in-law, Lloyd and Marylou HEFFORD, along with more than thirty-five cousins, nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren. Betty's absence will be palpable for us all. Betty loved to travel and her journeys with Bill took her the world over. One trip that she talked about often was to South Africa for a photo safari. She also organized a family trip with her cousin Nancy DATTRINO to England, Scotland and Wales on a quest to discover her lineage. Betty and Bill enjoyed winters in Florida away from the cold of Toronto and they would invite family and Friends to come and visit for winter holidays. The tradition of toasting the sunset over the gulf was started at Madeira Beach and continued when they moved to St. Augustine to be closer to her niece Debbie CASCADDEN. There was a cottage at Belmont Lake that was a special place for Betty and her family and is the source of many funny stories. Then later on when Betty and Bill bought a cottage on Paint Lake they would host tremendous parties for the whole gang. When she set the table you felt honoured to be there with her. When Betty had a party there was always dancing, and her husband continued to dance with her right to the end. Betty enjoyed sitting on the deck swing and watching the hummingbirds feed and the evening sunsets were so beautiful over the lake that the whole cottage would be filled with a golden light. Betty was predeceased by her parents, Tom and Mae HEFFORD (née JONES,) her niece Elizabeth-Anne HEFFORD and her grand_son Simon WILSON. Visitation will be held Sunday, September 25th at 11: 00 a.m. followed by a service at 1: 00 pm at Turner and Porter Funeral Home, 436 Roncesvalles Avenue in Toronto, Ontario. The family of Betty WILSON wishes to acknowledge the excellent care and compassion given by the Princess Margaret Hospital staff. Words alone cannot express our thanks for the support given our family during Betty's last days. Donations in Betty's memory may be made to Casey House Hospice, the Scott Mission or a charity of choice.

VERNON, G. Patrick H.
(Hons. B.A., LL.B., Q.C., Doctor of Sacred Letters)
On Wednesday, August 3, 2005 Patrick passed away at home, in the loving arms of his family, after a courageous 13-year battle with cancer. He was a survivor of prostate cancer owing to early detection and treatment. Patrick will be greatly missed by his family, Deborah Smith VERNON, his wife of fifty years, children Catherine Harcourt MARTIN, Geoffrey William Harcourt VERNON, Susan Elizabeth Vernon PELLERIN, their spouses/partners Robert MARTIN, Johnny BRYAN, and Denis PELLERIN, and grandchildren Richard, Taylor and Scott MARTIN, Caitlin and Julia VERNON, and Sarah and Lucie PELLERIN.
Born to Arthur Arundel Harcourt VERNON and Margaret Cayley Harcourt VERNON on November 15, 1926, Patrick attended Jarvis Collegiate, Trinity College School, Trinity College, and Osgoode Hall Law School, becoming a corporate lawyer and a partner at McCarthy Tétrault. In 1981 Patrick was called to the Bar of Alberta, and took up residence in Calgary. He became the managing partner of a new law firm, Black and Company, which ultimately became part of McCarthy Tétrault, the national law firm.
Patrick was the consummate community service advocate and volunteered his time and talents to the organizations in which he believed. He was a Life Governor of Trinity College School, a volunteer worker and chief fundraiser for the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, and served on a number of charitable foundations and boards. In 1995 he was appointed for four years to the Ontario Securities Commission, and from 2001 to the present, served as a director of the Ontario Pension Board. In September 2004, Patrick received the honorary degree, Doctor of Sacred Letters at Trinity College, Toronto, in recognition of his service to the School, the Church and the community.
An avid historian, Patrick published two books, The Bells of Old York, which outlines the change-ringing bells, the installation of which he co-ordinated, at The Cathedral Church of St. James, and Ladywood, a compilation of diaries relating to the 100-year history of the Vernon summer residence on Lake Simcoe. Patrick enjoyed travelling, fishing, skiing, playing billiards, card games and tennis with family and Friends. He had conservation and other projects on the go at his and Debby's beloved 'Hilltop House' near Uxbridge, Ontario, and was always happy to spend 'grandfather time' with his seven grandchildren.
A service to celebrate Patrick's life will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, August 11, 2005 at The Cathedral Church of St. James, 65 Church Street (at King St. E.).
The family wishes to thank Dr. Douglas ROBERTSON, the doctors and caregivers at Princess Margaret Hospital, the Toronto General Hospital, Integracare, and the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation or giving your personal time to the charity of your choice.

DUNCAN, Alexander James (1929-2005)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alexander DUNCAN on Saturday, April 30th, 2005. Alex was predeceased by his devoted and loving life partner of nearly half a century James Richard SHAEFFER. Alex passed away due to complications from a recent stroke and weakened by grief over the loss of his beloved Jim two weeks prior (see obituary for SHAEFFER, James Richard). Alex is predeceased by his parents Mary Jean and William DUNCAN, sister Dora WAY (Bill,) brother Douglas DUNCAN (Vicki,) sister Sheila STAMBULSKI, brother-in-law Denny RAGEN, and cousin and great friend May WAY. Deeply saddened by his loss are sister Gertrude RAGEN, step-sister Sandy VERNON, brother-in-law Stanley STAMBULSKI, and many devoted nieces and nephews. Alex will be affectionately remembered and deeply missed by all members of the Shaeffer family for his humour, generous spirit, and hospitality. Many people in the "Doggie Profession" will remember Alex and Jim. They started out showing dogs, went on to their own breeding kennels in Uxbridge, Ontario, and eventually settled down and opened the grooming business "The Beauty Salon for Dogs" on O'Connor Drive in Toronto. When it came time to retire they took their two pups Maude and Fred and moved to Niagara Falls where they enjoyed a beautiful home and garden, and made some wonderful new Friends, both two legged and four. The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses of the Greater Niagara General Hospital for their tender loving care and support, not only to Alex and Jim, but the family as well. Special thanks go out to a wonderful friend and mentor Paul BARBER; your gentle spirit, calm demeanor, offers of respite, and quiet talks soothed our hearts. Cremation has taken place. In memory of Alex and Jim, please support an animal shelter, an agency that trains service dogs, or just take a few minutes to walk your four legged best friend. God bless you Alex. We are so proud of you!Arrangements entrusted to Niagara Funeral Alternatives, (905) 894-0120.
