TAILOR/TAYLOR, Hilda
In memory of Hilda, my loving twin sister, aunt and great aunt who passed away suddenly on March 25, 2004.
Remembering you is easy
I do it every day
Missing you is a heartache
That never goes away.
The parting was extremely sudden
And I often wonder why
And the hardest part was,
I didn't want to say good-bye.
As time unfolds a year
Memories keep you so near.
You had a smile for everyone
You had a heart of gold
You left so many memories
This world could ever hold
Tome you were so special
What more is there to say
Except to wish with all my heart
That you were here today.
I miss you so much Honey, Your twin sister Helen, Brother-in-law Gerry WEBB and family.

Bob MacDOUGALL, Royal Canadian Air Force Flier And Priest 1924-2004
Shot down over the North Sea, he made a pact with God, accepted the German surrender in Denmark and then came home to take his vows and work among hardened criminals. Later, he starred on 100 Huntley Street as a evangelical priest
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, January 29, 2005 - Page S7
No one wants to be the last man killed in a war.
Hitler had just four days to live when Bob MacDOUGALL found himself floating in the dark in the North Sea. Flying Officer MacDOUGALL had about another 60 years to live, most of them as a Jesuit priest, but all he knew then was that the Second World War was almost over and his situation was desperate.
Minutes before, he had been the tail gunner in a Halifax bomber, carrying war material to the resistance in Denmark. The crew was with 644 Squadron and had left their base in Dorset in England at 10 p.m. on April 26, 1945. To remain undetected by German radar, the plane flew between 50 and 100 feet above the water. "When we hit the west coast of Jutland, we had to climb," remembered Father MacDOUGALL in an interview in 1988.
A short while after they made their drop, they were hit by fire from the ground. According to Sandy BARR, a pilot who now runs the Squadron's historical website, their pilot ditched the plane just off the coast. All six crew members -- one Canadian, three New Zealanders and two Brits -- made it out alive.
The frigid water numbed his legs. Later in life, vascular problems would confine him to a wheelchair. Father MacDOUGALL wasn't particularly religious then, but as he struggled in the water, he formulated a pact. Years later, he told his brother Ian that he had made a promise to God. "He said, 'Save me from this and I'll spend my life doing good.' He was saved, and he kept his promise," said Ian MacDOUGALL.
After a spell in the water, the crew was picked up by Danish fishermen. As soon as the crew members landed, they left the fishermen, since the Germans shot anyone who helped a downed airman. Father MacDOUGALL wandered for a day or so, following instructions from the fishermen to look for a church steeple, since there he might find a sympathetic minister.
"I came to a brook and crossed over, but failed to see a German sentry on the other side. He raised his gun and brought me to a halt," recounted Father MacDOUGALL. He and at least one other crew member were arrested and put in a prisoner of war camp. Their internment didn't last long. On May 7, 1945, far away at a schoolhouse in the French city of Rheims, senior representatives of Hitler's defeated forces signed a ceasefire and the war in Europe was over.
In Denmark, the Germans wanted to surrender, but not to the Russians, who were fast approaching from the East and had already occupied an offshore island. The German command resolved to surrender to a British or American officer, preferably a general or even a colonel. They scoured their prisoner of war camps and all they could come up with was a 21-year-old Canadian flying officer who only days before had been swimming about in the North Sea. His officer rank was the second-lowest in the Royal Canadian Air Force, equal to a lieutenant in the army.
And that is how Bob MacDOUGALL came to accept the surrender of the German garrison in Denmark. He was carried through the streets of Vejle, the town nearest his PoW camp, and hailed as a liberator. At that moment, no one was more surprised than he. A month later, the picture of the celebration found its way back home and the face and name of "F/O Robert MacDOUGALL of 107 Henry Street, Halifax," was splashed across the front page of the Halifax Chronicle.
Father MacDOUGALL grew up in Nova Scotia but was born in Saskatchewan, where his father worked as a bank manager. The family moved to Halifax when he was a tot. Ralph MacDOUGALL was a businessmen, and although not rich, he was successful enough to raise a brood of children and send them all to university. He was a Presbyterian but his wife May WEBB was a Roman Catholic, so young Bob went to Saint Thomas Aquinas elementary school and St. Patrick's high school.
His mother died when he was quite young and his father married Gertrude MacNEIL, also a Catholic. Together, they raised his six children, as well as two more the couple would have together.
Bob MacDOUGALL joined the Royal Canadian Air Force from high school. He was the third member of his family to join, and all three went overseas -- his brother Bill as a soldier in the army and his sister Betty as an army nurse. Like everyone who joined the air force, he hoped to be a pilot. Instead, he became a tail gunner, the most vulnerable crew position on a Second World War bomber.
On his return to England from Denmark, he visited his sister at the hospital where she worked. In their happiness, a rather raucous party developed during which "he wrecked my bicycle," she recalled.
When he reached Halifax, Bob MacDOUGALL decided to attend St. Mary's University, where he was active in organizing the hockey team and also played football. Mindful of his promise to God, he considered becoming a journalist and instead opted for the priesthood. In 1950, he joined the Jesuits, the largest of all Roman Catholic religious orders. Many of his Friends bet he wouldn't last.
"It was tough for a war veteran who had seen the world to settle into that routine," said Elmer MacGILLIVRAY, who attended the Jesuit Novitiate with Father MacDOUGALL. "He was older than everyone else and the rules were tough for him."
Life was lived in silence, from rising at 5: 30 a.m. to chapel at 5: 55 a.m., followed by prayer from 6 to 7 a.m., a mass, and then breakfast 30 minutes later. "You could ask for sugar, but otherwise it was total silence," said Mr. MacGILLIVRAY, who later gave up the priesthood.
Because of his age and experience, Bob MacDOUGALL was ordained after 11 years instead of the usual 13. One of his first assignments was Loyola High School in Montreal. There he coached sports teams and taught several subjects, including Latin.
In one session, the boys learned to conjugate scio, the verb to know. In Latin, the words "I know," "you know," "he knows" are scio, scis, scit, with the "c" pronounced as an "h." His 14-year-old pupils fell about laughing at the sound of scit. To help them get over it, Father MacDOUGALL had them conjugate the verb aloud 30 times. The giggles soon disappeared.
Father MacDOUGALL had a varied life. He taught in schools, worked in parishes, was the priest at a veterans hospital and even worked as a missionary in South America. For several years, he served as the chaplain at Stoney Mountain Penitentiary near Winnipeg. There, he started a choir and convinced parishes in the area that his singing prisoners posed no danger. One of those he convinced was Elmer MacGILLIVRAY, who was then the parish priest at St. Ignatius of Winnipeg.
"On one trip, he stopped and he lost one prisoner when he escaped for a while. He was embarrassed about that," said Mr. MacGILLIVRAY who now lives in Edmonton.
Working at the maximum-security jail was tough and Father MacDOUGALL sometimes found it depressing to deal with hardened criminals. Often dismissed by cynical and intractable convicts as just another man in a dog collar to offer them empty promises and meaningless rituals, Father MacDOUGALL came to believe he was a failure and that the promise he made on that black, North Sea night had come to nothing. He was convinced he was a catastrophe as a prison priest and had not done good or helped any in his congregation. The truth, of course, was quite different. Until he learned otherwise, he grappled with more immediate demons at Stoney Mountain and found himself drinking too much. In the end, Father MacDOUGALL succeeded in conquering both depression and alcohol.
Perhaps the most astounding part of Father MacDOUGALL's religious life was his born-again status as a Christian evangelist. That occurred while working in a parish north of San Diego, California. Afterward, he remained a Roman Catholic and a Jesuit but embraced the scripture, the words of the Bible, and became the only Roman Catholic priest to preach on 100 Huntley Street, the Toronto-based evangelical Christian television channel.
He appeared on hundreds of television shows and started his own Food for Life program. Many conventional Catholics found his evangelism shocking and lodged complaints, but he persisted. "There are Catholic evangelicals, and he served them," said Rev. Jacques MONET, the archivist at Jesuit headquarters in Toronto.
Father MacDOUGALL was unapologetic about his evangelism. "I know God wanted me to be an evangelist to the world -- my Roman Catholic world," he said. A natural performer, he appeared on television and at prayer meetings, sometimes in his Roman collar, other times in an open-necked shirt.
Even his brothers and sisters, all of them religious Catholics, were sometimes startled at what their brother was up to. For all that, they are intensely proud of the homeless mission he set up in Toronto.
"I think one of the highlights of his life was setting up the Good Shepherd Refuge on Queen Street East near Parliament [in Toronto]. He wanted to feed the street people, and he worked at gathering food from local restaurants to feed them" said his brother Ian. "He started it in the mid 1970s and it's still open."
He made good on that promise.
Robert Leonard MacDOUGALL was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan., on February 27, 1924. He died on December 26, 2004. He was 80. He is survived by his brother Ian of Brampton, Ontario, his brother Lorne of Truro, Nova Scotia, and by his sisters Bette COLFORD and Margaret BOUDREAU of Halifax.

John MUGGERIDGE, Teacher And Writer: (1933-2005)
son of the famous British journalist and author carved out a life in Canada as a writer, educator and anti-abortion zealot who, in his way, introduced his father to Catholicism, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Thursday, December 1, 2005, Page S9
Teacher and writer John MUGGERIDGE was brought up "a mild boarding-school Anglican," according to his friend, the journalist David WARREN, but became an orthodox Catholic and fervent anti-abortionist under the influence of his wife, the Catholic writer and polemicist Anne ROCHE.
However public and political his stance as a "pro-life" campaigner, Mr. MUGGERIDGE never condoned or supported the homicidal activities of some anti-abortion campaigners, according to Mr. WARREN, himself a convert to Catholicism. "The whole point is that he was defending life, not psychopaths. He would be much more likely to shelter the woman who has had an abortion and realizes that she has done a terrible, terrible thing."
A gentle, self-effacing man with a wry wit, he never acknowledged how many people were touched by his faith in their essential goodness. Mr. MUGGERIDGE subsumed his own ambitions to his role as father and provider to a large family of four sons and a daughter. "He parked his academic career for his family," said his eldest son John Malcolm MUGGERIDGE. "He sacrificed his studies because he needed an income."
His nascent literary skills were called upon when George Orwell asked him to read the manuscript of Animal Farm before it was published in 1945. "Orwell and his father were worrying that the manuscript might suffer the same fate as Gulliver's Travels that is, become a children's book," said the writer Kildare DOBBS, who is related to the MUGGERIDGEs through his mother. John, at the age of 12, read Orwell's masterpiece and proclaimed it an adult book.
John MUGGERIDGE was born on the outskirts of London, England, the second of four children of journalist, writer and pundit Thomas Malcolm MUGGERIDGE and his wife Katherine " Kitty" DOBBS, a niece of Fabian socialist Beatrice WEBB. His older brother Leonard said he really didn't know John MUGGERIDGE as a child because they were "shipped off to boarding schools early on" because their famous father was "here, there and everywhere." The two brothers only became close in the past two decades.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE went to Cranbrook College and then did his then-obligatory two years of military service in Kenya. On his return to England, he studied history at Jesus College, Cambridge. After graduation, he immigrated to Canada in the mid-1950s "out of boredom," as he told one of his grandchildren who was writing a school essay on immigration.
"I think he wanted a change, said his son John Malcolm MUGGERIDGE. "His father was well known and he wanted to carve his own way and he wanted to teach." He looked in The Times of London and found two jobs advertised: one in Hong Kong and one in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
That's how he met his future wife Anne-Marie ROCHE. She had entered the Sisters of Presentation as a novitiate, but had left the order before taking her vows. The sisters had found her a teaching job at the local Catholic school in Corner Brook. Mr. MUGGERIDGE, who was teaching at the public school, met her at a teacher's union meeting.
A couple of years later, Mr. MUGGERIDGE left Corner Brook to study for a master's degree in Canadian history at the University of Toronto. "He and my mom courted by letter," said his son. They married in 1960 and his father converted to Catholicism about a year later. "Mom was the driving force there. She was very, very devout and she had a strong influence on people. She was the main reason for Dad's conversion and for granddad's [in 1982], although he was also influenced by Mother Teresa and the pope."
"My theory is that John came to Canada to get away from his father's notoriety and also perhaps to get away from opinionated people, but then he married an even more opinionated person," said Mr. DOBBS.
A traditional Catholic who disagreed vehemently with Vatican II and its attempts to modernize the Church, Ms. ROCHE is the author of The Gates of Hell: The Struggle for the Catholic Church (1975) and The Desolate City: Revolution in the Catholic Church (1986). "I didn't marry a Catholic, I married Catholicism," Mr. MUGGERIDGE used to say about his increasingly orthodox religious views and his strong anti-abortion stance.
"In Catholic teaching there can not be anything right about abortion," said Mr. WARREN, himself a Catholic convert. "The moral positions may be difficult to uphold in people's personal lives, but they are not difficult to understand."
Mr. MUGGERIDGE taught history and French at Ridley College in the early 1960s and then taught at Earl Haig High School in Toronto before moving with his growing family to Hamilton to pursue a doctorate at McMaster University.
For a time, the MUGGERIDGEs were involved in a conservative discussion group critical of the provisions of Vatican II. Called the St. Athanasius Society, it was led by Jim DALY, a McMaster professor, and by Sister Mary Alexander, a teacher. The group fell apart after Prof. DALY's early death from cancer.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE didn't finish his doctorate. He moved his family, which by then numbered three children, to Niagara College in Welland, Ontario, in 1969, where he taught English literature and composition and Canadian Studies. He retired in the early 1990s. A voracious reader, he read his wife to sleep every night with a selection from Shakespeare, Dickens, Jane Austen, P.G. Wodehouse or John Donne and the Metaphysical poets.
As a writer, Mr. MUGGERIDGE frequently contributed book reviews to The Globe and Mail, wrote regularly for the now-defunct The Idler magazine and served as a contributing editor to the orthodox monthly magazine, Catholic Insight. "He was a Christian gentleman, very kindly disposed," said associate editor David DOOLEY, a retired English professor from St. Michael's College at the U of T.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE was not a quick writer, according to Mr. DOOLEY. "Give him a book review and the result would be slow in coming and very well thought out with a good sense of style."
Both he and his wife wrote regularly for The Idler in the 1980s and became close Friends with founding editor David WARREN. "He never really thought of himself as a writer," said Mr. WARREN, explaining that Mr. MUGGERIDGE mainly displayed his literary skills through old-fashioned letter writing. He could focus a cold, clear eye on his subject, however.
In "The Last Days of St. Muggs," an article he wrote in the January/February 1991 issue of The Idler, Mr. MUGGERIDGE wrote frankly about his father's youthful days as "an unfaithful, hard-drinking near-playboy," the progressive senility of his last months and summed him up as "a magnificent battle-axe of a Catholic controversialist with yet a wistful and forgiving, kindly heart."
Mr. MUGGERIDGE also contributed regularly to Human Life Review, a sectarian quarterly that William F. Buckley once praised as "the focus of civilized discussion of the abortion issue." He came to the journal through his father, who was good Friends with the founding editor, J.P. McFadden. "He brought clarity, humour, optimism, wisdom, patience and perseverance," to the publication, said senior editor Faith Abbott, the founder's widow.
Mr. MUGGERIDGE's wife Anne began evincing signs of dementia in the early 1990s, and was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and institutionalized in Toronto about five years ago. Mr. MUGGERIDGE moved to Toronto to be near his wife and went every day to feed her lunch. His own health began to fail about 2000. He suffered from multiple myeloma and underwent a strenuous bone-marrow transplant about three years ago. He survived the drastic treatment, but fell ill this autumn with a previously undiagnosed bowel cancer that had metastasized to his liver. His life was celebrated at a Latin mass at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Toronto on Tuesday.
John MUGGERIDGE was born in Croydon, near London, England, on February 28, 1933. He died in Toronto on Friday, November 25, of bowel cancer. He was 72. He is survived by his wife Anne, his sons John, Charles, Peter and Matthew, his daughter Rosalind, and his older brother Leonard.

WEBB, Douglas Gordon -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, December 3, 2005, Page M6
Ryerson history professor Douglas WEBB had catholic tastes and would have loved the chance to teach about pop culture.
"I know he was a big fan of The Simpsons -- he always seemed to have it on while he was marking papers," his brother Donald said. "If he'd lived, he would have taught a course on that."
Don WEBB said his brother didn't finish his doctorate because he was "a perfectionist," but taught at the university level nonetheless. He had studied intellectual history in pursuit of a sociology doctorate and throughout his life had a keen interest in contemporary politics.
"He could have been one of those backroom guys in politics," Don WEBB said, noting his brother's analysis of the election that brought Mike Harris to power in Ontario. "That '95 election, he called it right to the riding -- he called every seat."
As an instructor, he got bored easily, and switched his teaching focus repeatedly among subjects such as the American Civil War, the Third Reich, espionage and the First World War.
Douglas WEBB was born in 1948 and educated at the University of Toronto. He lived his entire adult life in the city, rarely leaving even for vacations.
He lectured first at the University of Toronto and then at Ryerson, taking repeated stabs at different phases of history and building a formidable knowledge base.
"He just sort of slept and ate this stuff," Don WEBB said. "He seemed to know everything about everything."
Douglas WEBB suffered a heart attack in February and, misunderstanding what had happened, waited five days before seeking medical attention. The effects of that attack forced him into a series of procedures and he was in a medically induced coma on August 14, the day he turned 57.
Mr. WEBB died October 11 at St. Michael's Hospital.
