WOOD, Barbara
Passed away suddenly in her 69th year at Markdale Hospital.
There is coming a day when no
heartaches shall come,
No more clouds in the sky,
No more tears to dim the eye
All is peace for ever more on that happy golden shore,
What a glorious day that will be.
'Til we meet again at Jesus' feet
Remembered lovingly my her Friends, Lily, Pat, Eva and Chris.

Stranded by ill health, Australian athlete dies
By Melinda DALTON, Free Press Reporter
The Australian athlete stranded for the last month in a London hospital far from home has died.
Mark SHERIDAN, who had a heart attack shortly after arriving in London, died about 6 p.m. Monday at University Hospital in London.
"(Doctors) thought he'd last a bit longer, but he went peacefully," his mother, June SHERIDAN, said yesterday.
June SHERIDAN made her first trip out of Australia last Thursday to be with her son here.
The mother was by his side when he died.
"Sunday, he had a really good day. When we went in (Monday), he wasn't good at all, but I didn't expect he'd go so quick," she said.
Mark SHERIDAN arrived in London on July 15, one day before his 40th birthday, to defend his gold-medal title in 10-pin bowling at the World Transplant Games.
Before he could compete, the two-time kidney recipient had a heart attack.
He was marooned at University Hospital for more than a month, unable to afford the cost of an air ambulance home -- about $120,000 U.S. -- and not medically fit to take a commercial flight. Neither his insurance company nor government medical coverage in Australia would pay for the flight.
Last week, several Londoners joined SHERIDAN's Friends and family in Australia to help raise the money to fly him home by air ambulance.
Chris and Michele GOULD, who became good Friends with SHERIDAN's Australian teammates while they were in London, organized a raffle through their company, 2000 Tours.
Chris GOULD visited SHERIDAN in hospital Monday to relay stories of his teammates' travels.
"I said, 'Your boys don't play table tennis very well, but they can sure down a pint," he recalled telling SHERIDAN hours before he died in his sleep. "That made him smile."
The cause of death wasn't known last night.
GOULD and his wife have decided to go ahead with the fundraising raffle to help ease the financial burden left on SHERIDAN's family.
"His government and his insurance have just left him here. This is the least that I can do," GOULD said.
The London Rotary Club will likely go ahead with fundraising plans as well, said club secretary Murray WOOD.
SHERIDAN's mother said she's grateful for the help she's received in London, but she's still left with the problem of getting her son back to Australia, which could cost more than $10,000 Cdn.
"This is the last thing we expected so soon," she said. "Now, all I've got to do is get him home."
The local organizing committee of the Transplant Games will offer some financial help to transport SHERIDAN's body, said Nancy LAWRENCE, spokesperson for the games. She wouldn't say how much money the games would offer.
The Australian High Commission in Ottawa said a representative from the consulate met with SHERIDAN's mother yesterday.
"During the whole case, we were in constant contact with Mark and the doctors," said Lin FOWLER, vice-consul at the Australian High Commission.
"We were satisfied that he was receiving the best care. We are now providing counselling (and) looking into options for the trip back."
Fundraising Raffle
- An Ultimate Leafs Package, worth more than $1,100, will be raffled off September 12, with all proceeds going to the SHERIDANs.
- The $20 tickets can be purchased by credit card by calling 474-7706 or 1-888-869-0506, or at 2000 Tours' 299 Springbank Dr. office. See www.2ktours.com for more information and prize details.

Serial killer feared in teen's death
By Terry PEDWELL, Canadian Press
Ottawa -- The case of a missing Ottawa teen is now a murder investigation, sparking fears by some a serial killer may be on the loose.
Police confirmed yesterday that a body found near a hiking trail, just steps from a frequently used parking lot, is that of 18-year-old Jennifer TEAGUE who disappeared on her way home from work September The body was partly covered in tree branches when it was found Sunday about five kilometres from the west-end restaurant where TEAGUE was last seen after working the late shift.
Investigators are not ruling out the possibility that a serial killer is responsible, but they said it doesn't immediately appear that the case is related to that of another murdered Ottawa woman.
The body of Ardeth WOOD, 27, was discovered more than two years ago near a path in the city's east end and police have yet to find her killer.
"At this point, I must stress that the two investigations do not appear to be related," said a sombre Staff-Sgt. Monique ACKLAND at a roadside news conference near where the body was discovered.
But that didn't ease everyone's fears. At least one radio talk show host and many residents raised concerns about a link to WOOD and fears of a serial killer.
The cause of death was not immediately known and police would not reveal whether TEAGUE had been sexually assaulted, nor whether she was fully clothed when discovered.
"It will take... extensive forensic testing to obtain more information," said ACKLAND. " That could take weeks."
The identification was done through dental records.
As many as 65 police officers continued searching area roadways and the swamp near where TEAGUE's body was found as separate investigative teams probed her death.
All available staff, from forensics specialists to crime lab personnel and beat cops, have been called in to help.
As a small aircraft guided them from above, vanloads of police searchers could be seen yesterday heading into a marsh that makes up part of the Stoney Swamp Conservation Area, about 500 metres from the trail where the odour of a decomposing body led an off-duty police officer to TEAGUE.
The TEAGUE family, after being informed of the positive identification of the teenager, asked police to relay their wishes for privacy to the media, said ACKLAND.
"They are going through very hard times and our hearts go out to them. Please leave the family alone."

Nancy OAKES, Heiress: 1924-2005
The Toronto-born socialite's courtroom testimony helped save her playboy husband from the gallows. He had been accused in the sensational 1943 murder of her father, the Ontario mining magnate Harry OAKES
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, February 19, 2005 - Page S9
A young Nancy OAKES faced a tragedy beyond comprehension. Her millionaire father, Sir Harry OAKES, was bludgeoned and set afire at his beachfront mansion in the Bahamas; her playboy husband, a Mauritian-born count, was charged with the murder.
Police described to her in sordid detail a killing about which they had no doubt as to guilt. The widow, Eunice Lady OAKES, believed police had fingered the culprit. The opinion was shared by her peers in Bahamian high society, who at last found an excuse for their lingering dislike of the foreigner with a French title.
In the face of overwhelming animosity, with evidence weighing against her husband, Nancy OAKES chose to believe the word of the man with whom she had eloped a scant 14 months earlier. The love affair scandalized her parents, who harboured great antipathy for a son-in-law they suspected of being a gigolo and a gold digger. The daughter's marriage put at risk her inheritance of one of the world's greatest fortunes, created from gold found in Northern Ontario.
Blessed with the good fortune to be born the beautiful daughter of a multimillionaire, with auburn hair that turned heads at the yacht club, Nancy OAKES accepted the role of faithful and trusting wife with a sang-froid beyond her years. She agreed to be the final witness for the defence at her husband's trial.
Her testimony could determine his fate -- freedom, or the gallows. She was just 19.
The murder and subsequent trial bumped war news from the front page of newspapers around the English-speaking world in 1943. The teenaged bride would forever after be known for what happened in those days, a legacy that she would carry to her death, on January 16 in London, at the age of 80.
The case has inspired a television mini-series, as well as Hollywood films and several true-crime books. Novelists also have delighted in the characters: a wealthy gold miner, his beautiful (but spoiled) daughter, her louche lover, and, irresistibly, the Duke of Windsor, the abdicated Edward VIII appointed governor of the colony, who was to have golfed with Mr. OAKES on the day of his murder and whose inexplicable interference with the investigation raises questions that remain unanswered to this day.
Born in Toronto, Nancy OAKES was the first of Harry OAKES's five children. Their father was a gruff and irascible man whose ample generosity did not always extend to his offspring.
Mr. OAKES, who was born and raised in Maine, quit medical school as a young man to join the Klondike gold rush in 1898. He laboured in poverty for years before staking a successful claim near Swastika, Ontario He later sold his share in the claim to finance what would become the greatest gold discovery in the Western Hemisphere, the Lake Shore Mine at Kirkland Lake.
Soon, he was the richest man in the land, owning a lakeside chateau near the mine as well as a hilltop estate on 20 acres overlooking the Niagara River. These would be Nancy OAKES's first homes.
In 1934, he abandoned Canada for the British West Indies to avoid taxes levied on his great fortune by the Conservatives. Five years later, he was granted a baronetcy by the king for his philanthropy.
His eldest daughter was schooled at Heathfield in Ascot, England the Fermata in Aiken, S. C.; and the French School for Girls in New York. She spent holidays with her family on the Bahamian archipelago. On one of those visits she danced with Marie-Alfred Fouquereaux DE MARIGNY, known as Count MARIGNY of Mauritius to the newspapers and as Freddie MARIGNY to his Friends. Majestic at 6-foot-5, dark-skinned from many hours aboard his yacht, he was possessed of many flamboyant skills.
On May 19, 1942, two days after Nancy OAKES attained her majority, she was married to her dashing suitor by a county-court judge in a ceremony in the Bronx. News of the elopement shocked her parents, who disapproved of the groom, who, at 32, was already twice divorced. (Sir Harry seemed to forget he was 48 when he married Eunice McINTYRE, 26, following a whirlwind romance.) Relations were frosty.
On the morning of July 8, 1943, Sir Harry was discovered on his back in bed in his second-floor chambers at Westbourne, a seaside estate surrounded by hibiscus and bougainvillea. He was found by his best friend, Harold CHRISTIE, a wealthy real-estate agent risen from poverty who was the baron's only house guest that night.
As court would be told, Sir Harry's face was blackened by soot, his groin and left hand burned. He had four small puncture wounds above his left ear. Blood from his ear had dried across the bridge of his nose. The body was covered in small pillow feathers, which waved grotesquely from the stirrings in the room.
As governor, the Duke of Windsor decided not to entrust the investigation into the murder of the colony's wealthiest citizen to the local constabulary, nor to Scotland Yard. Instead, he called in two detectives from nearby Miami. If the duke wished a quick resolution, he got it. Within hours, the detectives arrested Mr. DE MARIGNY, announcing they had found his fingerprints on a Chinese bed screen at the murder scene.
The count's wife, who, like her mother and siblings was in the United States at the time of the killing, returned home convinced of her spouse's innocence. She visited him in jail twice a week. "I do all I can to make my husband comfortable," she told a reporter. "I send linens and special dishes to him -- chicken and fish and things like that. I suppose Freddie is what you'd call a gourmet."
Meanwhile, Sir Harry's will was filed for probate shortly before the opening of what was billed as the trial of the century. Rumours of disinheritance proved wrong. The will, representing Nassau holdings only, disposed of £3,671,700. The widow was awarded one-third, with the remainder to be divided among the five children. The countess was to receive two-fifteenths of her father's fortune on turning 30, with an annual living allowance until then.
A Bahamas Supreme Court jury heard the Miami detectives present the Crown's only physical evidence against the count, a single print from the pinky finger of his right hand, introduced as Exhibit J.
The count wept silently in the dock before composing himself as his wife began testifying on November 9, 1943. She was dressed in a black suit with white polka dots, wearing a white hat and white gloves, "an appealing figure," one writer noted, "composed but pale."
The defence wished to use her testimony to rebut the Crown's suggested motive for murder.
"Mrs. DE MARIGNY," asked defence counsel, "at any time during your married life has the accused ever attempted to obtain money from you?"
"No," Nancy replied.
"Has the accused ever made a statement of hatred toward your father?"
"No."
The defence had demolished earlier the Crown's fingerprint evidence, proving the print had come not from the bed screen but likely from an opaque drinking glass, or the cellophane wrap from a pack of cigarettes. Both had been handed to the count by the Miami detectives, raising questions as to their competence, if not criminality.
The jury deliberated for one hour, 55 minutes before reaching a verdict of not guilty on a 9-3 vote. The verdict was cheered in the courtroom, yet the jury had also called for the count's expulsion from the colony.
With the baron's estate tied up in court, the young couple auctioned household goods to finance their exile in Cuba, where they stayed with Ernest Hemingway.
By 1945, they had separated, the count signing an agreement reneging on claims on her inheritance. He came to Montreal and enlisted in the Canadian Army. In 1949, the New York Supreme Court ruled the count's second divorce had not met statutory requirements at the time he married the heiress. Their marriage was annulled.
In April, 1946, the heiress flew to Copenhagen after receiving news of the death of Joergen Edsberg, a Danish Royal Air Force pilot she planned to marry as soon as each obtained a divorce. She arrived the day after a military funeral attended by the pilot's wife and son, leaving a bouquet of lilacs at a grave left open at the request of the pilot's mother.
Nancy OAKES's life was filled with tragic loss, her father's savage murder being only the best known. An aunt drowned in the sinking of the liner S.S. Mohawk off the New Jersey coast in 1935; a brother, William Pitt OAKES, died of a heart attack complicated by a liver ailment at 27 in 1958; brother Sydney, who inherited Sir Harry's title, was killed at 39 in 1966 when his Sunbeam Alpine failed to negotiate a curve. A sister, Shirley, spent the final years of her life in a coma following an accident.
After the war, Nancy OAKES provided fodder for gossip columnists by being squired by dashing Hollywood stars. "Heiress Nancy OAKES and Philip Reed are Movietown's Big Talk," Walter Winchell wrote in an item typical of what was also to be found under the bylines of Dorothy Kilgallen and Hedda Hopper.
In a candlelight church ceremony performed by the Lord Bishop of Nassau before a society crowd on December 29, 1952, Nancy OAKES wed Baron Ernst Lyssardt VON HOYNINGEN- HUENE of Oberammergau, Germany, a union that would end in divorce less than four years later.
On March 1, 1962, she married Patrick Claude Henry Tritton, a Cambridge-educated importer of typewriters and firefighting equipment. Her third wedding was held before a handful of close Friends at the British ambassador's residence in Mexico City. Mr. Tritton was said to have been the model for the Anthony Powell character Dicky Umfraville, a likeable rogue.
After that marriage failed, she resumed using her second husband's name, not discouraging the practice of being called the baroness.
Erle Stanley Gardner, the creator of Perry Mason, called the baffling case "the greatest murder mystery of all time." Sent by Time magazine to cover the trial, he maintained Sir Harry was not killed in bed, but was moved there after death, as the burns on the bedding did not match those on the body. As well, the dried blood across the bridge of the nose indicated the body had been rolled over after death. The writer raised the spectre of the baron being tortured.
The murder has been attributed to a love triangle, to a voodoo ritual killing, and to mobsters Meyer Lansky and Lucky Luciano, whose dreams of casinos in the colony might have been thwarted by the powerful Sir Harry. Even the Duke of Windsor is not above suspicion.
Count DE MARIGNY, who died in Houston in 1998, wrote a book accusing Mr. OAKES's best friend, Mr. Christie, later Sir Harold, of ordering the murder. The crime remains unsolved 61 years after Nancy OAKES successfully asserted her husband's innocence.
Nancy Oakes VON HOYNINGEN- HUENE was born in Toronto on May 17, 1924. She died in London on January 16, aged 80, and was buried in Nassau, the Bahamas, on January 28. She leaves a son, Baron Alexander VON HOYNINGEN- HUENE, known as Sasha; a daughter, Patricia Oakes LEIGH- WOOD; and a younger brother, Harry OAKES.

Annie Evelyn Wood COLBERT
By Judith COLBERT, Friday, February 25, 2005 - Page A16
Nurse, sister, mother. Born January 29, 1910, in Saint Mary's, Ontario Died December 12, 2004, in Guelph, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 94.
When my mother's classmates at the Victoria Hospital School of Nursing penned the following lines for her graduation yearbook in 1932, they could not have known how prophetic they would be:
"Always happy, always gay, Chasing all the blues away. Where Woodie is, no one is ever sad. We know she will be successful wherever she goes, and may all her dreams come true."
Evelyn was a caregiver by nature and by profession. She was happiest tending to the needs of others and her loyalty lasted a lifetime. The eldest of six daughters of James and Arabella Lamond WOOD, Evelyn was fiercely protective of her sisters: Marguerite, Isabel, Dorothy, Irene and Lillian. In a remembrance written for her funeral, Dorothy called her "little mother to us all," capturing, in a single phrase, her affection for her family.
But although family and community mattered, it was belonging to the nursing profession that brought out the best in my mother's nature and shaped her distinctive personality. In a memoir she wrote in the early 1990s, Evelyn called entering training on February 4, 1929, "the beginning of the most wonderful experience of my life." The Class of 1932 became a second family, and residence life forged ties that bound the girls together for the rest of their lives.
Evelyn's career spanned amazing changes in health care. As a student, she sterilized hypodermic needles on a spoon filled with water boiled over a Bunsen burner. Common diseases of the day included diphtheria, typhoid and polio.
On graduation, she joined the nurse's registry and took cases as a "special" or "private-duty" nurse and often told us of her adventures.
Once, a surgeon took her to a private hospital -- essentially another doctor's house some miles away in the country. He did an emergency appendectomy, and then left Evelyn alone with the patient in a sweltering upstairs bedroom on 24-hour duty. The patient recovered, but had no money to pay the nurse, and probably not the surgeon. Years later, Evelyn met the grateful patient on the street in London. On recognizing her, she pressed a $5 bill into her hand and disappeared. Evelyn never saw her again.
In the days before universal medical insurance, Evelyn was often a community nurse for Friends and neighbours. Sometimes she was paid, but more often, she donated her services. In the 1960s, she joined the staff of Saint Mary's Hospital in London, where she remained until her retirement in 1980, at 70 years of age.
When she married Whitney COLBERT in 1941, Evelyn moved to the rural village of Hyde Park, just outside London, Ontario Her marriage was happy and she made a loving home for my sister, Nancy, and me. With our father, she enjoyed entertaining family and Friends; much of their life together focused on church and community. Long after Whitney's death in 1982, when she had moved on to London and Guelph, Evelyn often said how much she valued the fellowship of Hyde Park.
After 1995, when she went to Guelph to live with Nancy and her husband, her greatest delight was being "grandma" to Drew and Allison and their many Friends who stopped by after school to sample her famous tea biscuits and oatmeal cookies.
Throughout her life, Evelyn was fond of recalling that in 1932, as each graduate left residence, she and her classmates followed school tradition by singing the farewell hymn, Blessed Be the Tie that Binds. Now it seems fitting to confirm that my mother's Friends were right -- Evelyn did spend much of her life chasing blues away and told us all, many times, that all of her dreams had come true.
Judith COLBERT is Evelyn's daughter.

After returning from the War, he graduated from The University of Toronto with a Master of Commerce degree. He began his career working for Harry JACKMAN as an investment analyst with the Jackman Group of Companies. After seven rewarding years working with Mr. JACKMAN, he ventured out on his own and later brought in prominent investment managers, Jim COLE and Austin THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, to form an investment counselling business. One of the pioneers of the Canadian investment management industry, he launched and managed the Andreae Equity Fund, a leading equity mutual fund in the 1950's and 1960's. He also served as President of the Security Analysts' Association of Toronto in 1957-58 (a for-runner of the Toronto Society of Financial Analysts) and as a director of the Debenture Securities Corporation. In 1970, at the age of 50, he was described by the Toronto business media as, 'the grand old man of mutual funds.' He later sold Andreae Equity to First National City Bank of New York (now Citibank), negotiating the transaction with its President, Walter Wriston. After this sale, he agreed to serve as President of International Trust Company, Citibank's Canadian operation, and later acted as a consultant to Citibank in Geneva, Switzerland. After living in Geneva for several years, he moved to London, England and then returned to Toronto in 2004 to be closer to his family. An avid student of his family's genealogy, he was an enthusiastic supporter of the Andreae Ouheidkamer Museum, a regional museum located near an ancestral estate in Kollum, Holland. He spoke several languages and enjoyed travelling extensively. He enjoyed sailing and was a long-time member of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. He was also a member of The Albany Club and The National Club. Private funeral arrangements have been made.

OBORNE, Elizabeth Marguerite (née BOYDE) (1920-2005)
It is with profound sadness that the family of Elizabeth (Bette) Marguerite OBORNE announces the passing of its matriarch on Tuesday, August 2, 2005 at Rideau Place on-the-River, Ottawa, after a, thankfully, short term illness. Bette, predeceased by her parents Winnifred (WOOD) and Stanley BOYDE, her sister Shirley LONEY, and an infant son, John, was born in Toronto, October 2, 1920 where she lived until moving to Montreal in 1960, and Ottawa in 1978. With extensive travel, and winters in Florida since 1980, for 57 years she spent her summers at the beloved cottage at Skootamatta Lake, the gathering point for her extended family. Left to mourn are Ross, her beloved husband of 64 years, her children and their partners: Jim-Winnipeg-(Bryan, Jennifer, Jimmy and Elizabeth); David-Toronto-(John and Tracy) and Lynn-Lennoxville (Michael, Stephen, Jennifer and Carolyn) and 9 great-grandchildren. Mum was strong, independent, organized and hard working. She was a baseball fan and active participant in swimming, curling and particularly gardening. She loved flowers almost as much as sunsets at the lake and was able to enjoy several sunsets in the beautiful garden at Rideau Place shortly before her passing. A life-long supporter of her husband's and immediate family's activities, she was proud of their achievements and concerned during their trials. The connections to her extended family were very important to her and the family was her occupation in life - a job from which she never retired - and she remained more concerned for their interests than her own, right to the end of her days. A sincere appreciation is expressed by the family to Mum's caregivers: Ottawa Civic Hospital (4B), particularly intern Jennifer SOUCIE, St. Elizabeth Health Care, the staff and Friends at Rideau Place, and, most importantly, to her family physician, Dr. Howard COHEN, for his attention in the last 3 days of her life making her passing as comfortable as possible. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made at the Canadian Cancer Society or to the charity of choice. In accordance with her instructions, the remains will be cremated and deposited at Skootamatta Lake at a later date at a family memorial celebration.

Arthur WOOD, Pedodontist And Inventor: 1917-2005
Ontario dentist and minor-hockey coach helped develop the mouthguard. At first, young players rejected his device but later he became at least to parents -- a real-life tooth fairy
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail; Globe and Mail archives, Wednesday, August 17, 2005, Page S9
As a children's dentist, Arthur WOOD was appalled by the injuries caused by hockey pucks. Young patients filled his dental chair every winter, presenting mouthfuls of what were known among their peers as bloody Chiclets.
After a neighbour's son suffered broken teeth, Mr. WOOD made it his calling to end what he regarded as needless damage.
What he devised, with the help of Charlie PATTERSON and others, would cause the dentist to later be known as the Father of the Mouthguard.
He received many honours for his invention, not the least of which was the Order of Canada.
The son of a nurse and a store owner, Arthur WOOD was born in rural Saskatchewan near Estevan, about 20 kilometres from the North Dakota border. He learned to play hockey outdoors, stuffing department-store catalogues down his socks to act as shin guards. Like many of his future patients, he had no protection for his teeth.
In 1935, Gopher, as he had been nicknamed, was hired as a teacher at public schools, although the deprivations of the Depression forced him to defer some of his salary. He would later note with satisfaction that he had been paid in full, a decade after retiring as a teacher.
Mr. WOOD enrolled at the University of Toronto in 1938, completing a doctor of dental surgery degree in 1943. He married that same year and became a member of the Canadian Dental Corps with the rank of captain. Mr. WOOD served in Britain, Europe and Asia, although the only action he saw was hand-to-mouth combat. His final posting came aboard H.M.C.S. Ontario, a light cruiser serving in the Pacific, in 1946.
After the war, the dentist returned to the classroom for post-graduate studies in pediatric dentistry. He studied at the University of Illinois and Northwestern University in 1948 and 1949 under a fellowship provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
He returned to Canada for a position in the University of Toronto dentistry faculty. He would later become president of the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. He was also president of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and served on the board of the American Academy of Pedodontics.
Mr. WOOD maintained his boyhood passion for hockey throughout his life. In the 1950s, he became president of the Cooksville Hockey Association in what is now suburban Mississauga, Ontario He also coached a boy's team. With so many players becoming patients, he began to wonder if something couldn't be done to protect them.
The last straw landed in the early 1960s when a 17-year-old neighbour, who had only just had his teeth straightened, gave up four of his young pearlies to a hockey stick. Mr. WOOD got to work on some sort of protector that players would wear in their mouths.
At about the same time, Mr. PATTERSON, a researcher at York University who was also a fellow Cooksville coach, began tinkering with hockey helmets after his son, Dan, suffered a concussion in a nasty spill. At the time, helmets were little more than a leather skullcap. From there, the two men collaborated on developing what was known at first as a "mug guard" or "teeth guard." They also worked together on helmets.
In 1954, Mr. WOOD made mandatory for his players the wearing of his dental protector. By 1961, the equipment had become obligatory for all skaters in what was then the Toronto Township Hockey League.
He made a presentation about his innovation to the annual convention of the Ontario Dental Association the following May. In time, the mouthguard was adopted across the country, becoming an essential piece of protective equipment in hockey and many other contact sports.
"As a pediatric dentist, I used to see 200 hockey accidents a year," Mr. WOOD told the Toronto Star in 1991. "Now there are practically nil."
Still, the culture of the national game was such that many junior, senior and professional players refused to wear the gear, as though missing teeth were emblematic of a devil-may-care ferocity.
Mr. PATTERSON's head gear was also dismissed by some as an attempt to sissify a man's sport. Not until the start of the 1979-80 season was the wearing of helmets made compulsory for new players entering the National Hockey League. By that time, a generation which had grown up with unbroken smiles and uncracked skulls had climbed to the pro ranks.
Later, he took to visiting high school, university, even National Hockey League locker rooms to gather feedback from athletes. "Every year we try to build a better mousetrap," he once said.
Less well known was his work on building what he called "Allan Average," a kind of adjustable head form that could be used for testing all sizes of helmets. Along the way, he also became interested in developing mouth protection for basketball players.
Mr. WOOD's concern for safety also extended beyond dental well-being. He helped found the local traffic safety council in 1956, for which he later devised a "Kiss and Ride" drop-off program for schoolchildren and parents.
Even at age 75, he could be found at curbside making inspections on behalf of the council, which honoured him by appointment as a life member.
The dentist was inducted into the Mississauga Sports Hall of Fame in 1984. He was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in 1991. "It is gratifying to be a member of a team that greatly reduced facial and dental injuries," he said at the time.
His family says he never held a patent on any of his designs, taking as his reward the knowledge that athletic children could reach adulthood with their teeth intact.
Arthur WOOD was born on June 22, 1917, at Alameda, Saskatchewan. He died on July 11 at home in Mississauga, Ontario He was 88. He leaves his wife Mary Ruth, known as Molly; sons Peter WOOD of Toronto and John Kenneth (Kim) WOOD of Dallas, Texas; daughter Mary Sue Phillips of Ottawa; and seven grandchildren.

Robert Francis BROWN
By Neil CAMPBELL, Thursday, August 25, 2005, Page A16
Veteran, innkeeper, husband, father. Born December 24, 1916, in Montreal. Died April 18 in Kingston, Ontario, of cancer, aged The only child of Warren and Winifred BROWN grew up in comfortable surroundings in Montreal, his father the president of Cockfield, Brown, the largest advertising agency in Canada at one time. He attended Lower Canada College at an early age, and later, St. Andrew's College. He sailed on the original Bluenose, and travelled across Canada with his mother, staying at the finest hotels. However, his childhood was at times a lonely one; his fondest memories were of summer visits with his grandmother in Belleville, Ontario
The Second World War cut short his studies at McGill University. He enlisted for active service with the City of Westmount Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force, and was soon in England. In September, 1940, his Tiger Moth went into a tailspin, hit high-tension wires (which actually saved his life by breaking the fall), and crashed. The official photographs of the crash show no sign of an airplane only twisted and scorched metal -- yet somehow he walked away. He served the rest of the war back in Canada, as flight lieutenant at several air force bases in the Maritimes and Ontario. After the war ended, he never flew again.
Returning to civilian life, he studied hotel management at Cornell University, and then gained experience at the Alpine Inn in the Laurentian mountains and the Mount Royal Hotel in Montreal. In 1950, he purchased an old summer estate on Lake Massawippi in North Hatley, Quebec It was architecturally reminiscent of George Washington's Mount Vernon; in an ironic twist, he named it Hovey Manor after a prominent Loyalist settler, and over the next three decades built it into one of Canada's pre-eminent country inns.
He was the ideal innkeeper, very sociable, and a great raconteur. And there were many stories: temperamental chefs, eccentric guests, electricity and plumbing crises, visits by the National Ski Team (Nancy Greene et al.), pranks conducted up and down the lake. He was only away from the hotel a handful of days during a period of 30 years. Over the years, he was also instrumental in promoting tourism in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.
After three decades, however, both the clientele and the political climate were changing; his Montreal of the Normandy Roof and Kon Tiki restaurants was fading. To his credit, and despite generous offers, he refused to sell the hotel to a man with foreign connections. He helped turn the tide; today, North Hatley, prosperous and with its traditions intact, is in his debt. In 1979, he sold Hovey to the son of a good friend, knowing that it would be in good hands, and it continues today as a five-star resort hotel.
Early in the war, he had married Virginia WOOD, a union that produced three children: Carol, Robert and Anne. Ultimately the marriage did not last and in middle-age he married Elizabeth McCRAE. After her early death, he married a third time, spending a happy final decade with Audrey Esler SAVAGE.
In retirement, he enjoyed his long daily walks, his boat, Canadian football, the History Channel and the news, cocktail parties in North Hatley, and maintaining his meticulous daily diary. With Elizabeth he travelled a little, largely in New England, and with Audrey he enjoyed splitting time between North Hatley and an apartment in Kingston, with lunches at Chez Piggy replete with mandatory martinis. After a vigorous and full life, and hardly sick a day of it, the final months were frustrating for him, laid low by the sudden onset of diabetes and pancreatic cancer.
There was an appropriate memorial service for him in North Hatley. It was a life worth celebrating. He enjoyed life and made the world a little more interesting.
Neil is Robert BROWN's son-in-law.

Body in Ottawa identified as missing 18-year-old
By Gloria GALLOWAY, Tuesday, September 20, 2005, Page A6
Ottawa -- Jennifer TEAGUE's family sat on the front step of their townhouse in suburban Barrhaven yesterday and waited for confirmation of what seemed brutally obvious -- the decomposing body found in a swamp a short drive away was indeed that of the athletic 18-year-old.
Exhausted after more than a week of torturous uncertainty, her brother and others had no public words to offer about the vivacious Jennifer, a student and soccer goalie who chatted with Friends on the walk home from her late shift at a fast food restaurant, then disappeared.
When the official identification of the remains finally came mid-afternoon, the police begged for some quiet time for her loved ones.
"Jennifer TEAGUE's family has requested for us to ask that their privacy be respected," Staff Sergeant Monique ACKLAND said. "They are going through very hard times and our heart goes out to them. Please leave the family alone."
Her devout father, Edward TEAGUE, had remained stalwart during the long days after her disappearance, refusing to give up hope that she was still alive. Her mother, Jean TEAGUE, was mostly too distraught to speak, but broke down at one press conference, telling her missing daughter to "please, please come home."
That possibility ended Sunday when an off-duty police officer discovered the body just steps from a small parking lot in a marshy conservation area. Much more testing needs to be done before a cause of death can be determined, said Staff. Sgt. ACKLAND, and it could be weeks before the results are known.
So, even if her family must accept that their pleas for her safe return will not be answered, they do not know what she endured before her death. And there are many other questions being asked by the people of Ottawa -- including is there a serial killer in their midst?
It was just over two years ago that Ardeth WOOD, a 27-year-old university student taking a break from doctoral studies in philosophy, did not return from a midday bike trip in another part of this city. Her naked body was discovered five days later just off a bike trail near the edge of a creek where it had been covered with branches and leaves. She had been drowned.
Despite a slew of eyewitness descriptions of a man who had been approaching women along the same path, her killer has never been found.
Staff Sgt. ACKLAND said yesterday that there is no apparent link between the two crimes. "The major team investigators are pursuing their investigation and they will not discard any possibility," she said. "However, at this point, I must stress that the two investigations do not appear to be related."
But the similarities are difficult to ignore. Both young women were accosted when they were alone. Both were apparently taken from bike paths. Both were found in the woods. Both had been partly concealed with debris from the surrounding forest.
"It's just too coincidental," said Sheila MacKINTOSH, the mother of two teenage girls who played in the same soccer league as Ms. TEAGUE.
As with many of the women who live near the spot where she was last seen, Ms. MacKINTOSH's daughters have found their freedom curtailed. They "don't take the bus alone and they don't walk two blocks" at night, she said yesterday when she stopped to view the crime scene. "It's definitely shaken them up, and shaken their Friends up."
Ms. TEAGUE's Friends are also, understandably, distraught. One of them who was with her on the night she vanished took reporters to task for suggesting that the slightly built teen was partly responsible for her own demise because she didn't spend eight dollars to take a taxi home.
"Jennifer didn't have eight dollars," she said, refusing to give her name and lambasting the news media for intruding on private grief. "And do I look like I have wheels?"
Matthew CLAYTON, another friend, had a hard time speaking after being told that it was indeed Ms. TEAGUE who had been found Sunday,
"We were hoping for the best, but I guess it just wasn't supposed to happen," he said, his voice breaking. "She was a great person."
The police acknowledge that, so far, they have no "persons of interest" in the case.
Yesterday, they trolled in hip waders through the area surrounding the spot where Ms. TEAGUE's body was found. Others paddled through it by canoe, pedalled the local roads and conducted overhead searches by helicopter. But they acknowledge that random crimes such as this are the hardest to solve -- and the most frightening.
"I am just afraid that no one can trust the neighbourhood any more," said Kelsey CARKNER, a teenager who was biking through the fast-food restaurant parking lot.

FONTAINE, Marjorie " Mona" Jessie (READ)
Entered into rest at the Ross Memorial Hospital in Lindsay on Thursday, July 7, 2005. Mona READ was in her 86th year. Nicknamed Mona, from a character in a 1970's deodorant commercial, she was born in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. Her father was a Mountie who was still actually mounted. After living through the Dirty Thirties on the prairies, the family returned to England prior to World War 2, where she became a Registered Nurse and later served in the Army Nursing Corps in North Africa, India and Italy. Not bad for a gal from Maple Creek. After the war, she continued her nursing career at a veterans' hospital in Vancouver. There, she met her husband-to-be, Gerry, a patient who had been injured in the Korean War. They married, had one child and shared life together for almost fifty years. She continued her nursing career and eventually was registered in three provinces. Concentrating on long term care, she served as Director of Nursing at nursing homes in Calgary and Union Villa and Participation House (for physically challenged young people) in the Toronto area. After retirement, she and her husband settled in the Lindsay, Ontario area where they busied themselves with curling, golf, lawn bowling and travel. She was a curious person with a life long love of reading and learning who wanted to understand everything about everything. Returning from a vacation, she would faithfully read two or three weeks of newspapers despite the fact that the news was stale. As well, she was an adventurous person who liked new experiences. These included waterskiing in her fifties, sailing and cross country skiing in her sixties, golf and playing the ukulele in her seventies and trying to run Extendicare-Kawartha Lakes in her eighties. She had a strong sense of duty and responsibility, of pulling one's own weight and not being a burden on other people. In her last years, she worried that she was not doing her fair share of the work and was letting her fellow nurses at Extendicare-Kawartha Lakes down. She loved jokes (especially off colour ones) and collected punch lines for which she could not remember the joke. Cooking was not a strength. Rumour has it that she smoked out the house once by heating a frozen pizza while it still was on its cardboard tray! And she worried about everything, especially about not having anything to worry about. But her best quality was her love of people. She enjoyed talking to anyone about anything since this was another opportunity to learn. She was an unconventional woman who did things her way and was a liberated woman before the term had been invented. Survived by her son Michael and his wife Caroline GRAHAM of Toronto and her sister Dorothy WOOD of Yorkton, Saskatchewan. Predeceased by her husband Gerry and her brothers Buster of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and Paddy of Wagga Wagga, Australia. Visitation at the Mackey Funeral Home, 33 Peel Street, Lindsay (705-328-2721) on Saturday August 6th from 12: 00 p.m. until time of memorial service in the chapel at 1: 30 p.m. Interment of cremated remains at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Women's Resource Centre of Lindsay.

Missing teen murdered
Police identify body found in Ottawa wood
Girl's death sparks fear of possible serial killer
Canadian Press
Ottawa -- The case of a missing Ottawa teen is now a murder investigation, sparking fears by some that a serial killer may be on the loose.
Police confirmed yesterday that a body found near a hiking trail, just steps from a frequently used parking lot, is that of 18-year-old Jennifer TEAGUE, who disappeared on her way home from work September The body was partly covered in tree branches when it was found Sunday about five kilometres from the west-end restaurant where TEAGUE was last seen after working the late shift.
Investigators are not ruling out the possibility that a serial killer is responsible, but they said it doesn't immediately appear the case is related to that of another murdered Ottawa woman.
The body of Ardeth WOOD, 27, was discovered more than two years ago near a path in the city's east end and police have yet to find her killer.
"At this point, I must stress that the two investigations do not appear to be related," Staff-Sgt. Monique ACKLAND said at a roadside news conference near where the body was discovered.
The cause of death was not immediately known and police would not reveal whether TEAGUE had been sexually assaulted, nor whether she was fully clothed when discovered. The identification was done through dental records.
"It will take... extensive forensic testing to obtain more information," said ACKLAND. " That could take weeks."
TEAGUE disappeared shortly after heading home late at night from the Wendy's restaurant where she worked.
Wendy's Canada has a policy that forbids employees from leaving their place of work alone, said a spokeswoman.
But unlike some other fast food chains, it does not ensure employees are driven home in taxis or picked up by parents. The fast food chain is reviewing that policy.
"We are now in the process of reviewing our policies and procedures," said Sharon REID, who added that the corporation closely guards many details of its policies to protect employee safety.
