Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me - but let me go.

BANKS, Irene L.M. (1951-2005)
Peacefully at Grace Hospice in Winnipeg, Irene BANKS died on November 10, 2005. Irene was born and raised in Oxbow, Saskatchewan, daughter of Evelyn and Roy BANKS and sister of Walter (Laura,) Sheila (Reg) Glennie, and Karen (Dick) McMURRAY. She was predeceased by her father, and is survived by her mother, brother, sisters, and niece and nephews, Katherine and Carleton BANKS, Kelsey, Kyall, Devin GLENNIE.
She received her Bachelor of Arts degree and certificate with High Honours in Economics from the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus. Throughout her post-secondary education, which culminated in a Master's Degree in Economics from Queen's University, she received numerous scholarships and awards for academic achievement.
After receiving her degree from Queen's University, Irene worked for the Economic Council of Canada before moving to Winnipeg in 1977, where she began a distinguished career in the Government of Manitoba, serving under Premiers Schreyer, Lyon, Pawley, and Filmon. Initially, Irene was a member of the Cabinet's Planning Secretariat and then joined the Federal-Provincial Relations and Research Division of the Department of Finance, becoming the Department's chief economist, and earning widespread respect from colleagues across Canada and in international capital markets for the professionalism, rigour, candour, and brilliance of her analysis.
Despite a tragic and premature end to her professional career, Irene continued to enjoy what she could in life. She maintained her interest in social issues and supported many organizations dedicated to humanitarian goals. A gracious host, she welcomed many Friends into her home for fine food and stimulating conversation. She had a keen interest in dance, music, literature, and art. Irene also had a wonderful eye for design and had filled her home with small objects of beauty and whimsy from around the world. And most of all, she loved to travel. She took great pleasure in her annual trips to spend the winter months in Puerto Escondido, Mexico where she developed many long-term Friendships.
For the past fifteen years she fought a long and difficult battle. She used every ounce of her formidable intelligence and will to push back against the limitations of her illness, to broaden her options, to live life to the fullest. We are left to honour the memory of her immense courage and determination and to miss our friend, Irene.
At Irene's wish her remains were cremated. Also, at her wish, Friends, family and associates are invited to join together for a memorial service in celebration of her life on Saturday, November 26 at 3: 30 p.m. 3 - 544 Wardlaw Avenue in Winnipeg.
In recognition of the care provided to Irene over the past year, donations may be made to Grace Hospice, in care of Grace General Hospital Foundation, 300 Booth Drive, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3J 3M7.
Condolences may be emailed to thomsonfh@alderwoods.com. Thomson Funeral Home (204) 783-7211 in Winnipeg.

He also had a soft spot for England, counselling any who would listen that England was the place to go. When he was healthier, he had a knack for giving thoughtful, well-chosen gifts.

Judge led probe into baby deaths
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Samuel GRANGE, who chaired a royal commission into the deaths of 36 babies at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, has died. He was 85.
GRANGE also led a public inquiry into a 1979 train derailment in Mississauga that forced 218,000 residents to flee their homes in the largest peacetime evacuation in North American history, and was the first judge in Ontario to take a drunk driver's licence away for life.
GRANGE "was a most respected jurist," said Chief Justice Roy McMURTRY, who was Ontario's attorney general at the time of the hospital and derailment probes.
"He had a lot of responsibility which he took seriously, but he never took himself too seriously."
GRANGE was an Ontario Supreme Court judge and later a judge for the Ontario Court of Appeal.
He was appointed to look into the three dozen deaths at the Hospital for Sick Children between July 1980 and March 1981. The death rate in the two cardiac wards was about 625 per cent higher than normal during those months.
Police charged Susan NELLES, a former nurse at the hospital, with the deaths of four babies. On May 21, 1982, charges against her were dropped because there wasn't enough evidence for a trial.
The royal commission opened in June 1983. It lasted more than a year, cost more than $2.8 million and called 64 witnesses.
GRANGE concluded at least eight and possibly as many as 23 babies died from overdoses of the heart drug digoxin. But in the end, he didn't find anyone responsible for the deaths.
GRANGE, who died Friday, leaves a son, Dougall, and daughter, Alice. His wife, Patricia, died in 2003.

Judge KANE a giant in two arenas
Hockey and law were his driving passions in life
Former National Hockey League arbitrator had 'common touch'
By Christian COTRONEO, Staff Reporter
Joseph Charles KANE's heart belonged on a bench -- and even behind one.
As a Superior Court judge, his decisions from the judicial bench helped mould civil society in Ontario.
As a hockey coach, he shaped the lives of countless youth -- even if he had to be uncivil about it at times.
"The national anthem is finished," he would holler from his team's bench. "It's all right to move now."
The true measure of a man, KANE often said, is in his Friends. In that case, the former hockey coach, athlete and judge who died January 11 at the age of 76 was among the wealthiest men in the world.
Everyone from Maple Leafs coach Pat QUINN to sports magnate Steve STAVRO to Justice Roy McMURTRY attended KANE's funeral at Leaside United Church last Saturday.
"I have never been to a more glorious celebration of a man's life," said hockey analyst Bill WATTERS.
"I think he had more of a profound influence on me than I realized at the time. He always had a smile. He was always so positive."
WATTERS was 19 when he first met KANE.
"I thought, 'Boy, he's the kind of guy I would most like to be like,'" said WATTERS, who at various times was a coach, friend and even neighbour.
The fit, muscular man from Stratford, who "swore but was never mean," had role model written all over him.
KANE was among four freshly minted lawyers who founded a criminal law practice in an old building near Bay St. and Bloor Ave. KANE had the unenviable task of collecting fees from the clients.
"We were no good at charging fees," says former Justice Hugh LOCKE, who was a partner at the time. "So Joe collected the money. We called him the Vacuum Cleaner."
In 1978, after 23 years as a lawyer, KANE was appointed a county court judge in the City of Toronto. By 1997, he was sitting on the Superior Court bench.
"He was a very human judge," LOCKE says. "He knew what troubles people had. He had a very close, common touch."
Ontario Chief Justice McMURTRY, a friend of KANE's for more than 50 years, said KANE excelled when it came to tenant and landlord issues -- cases that could be so complex "a lot of judges sort of avoided them."
"But Joe understood people and he knew how to bring them together."
KANE was the consummate mediator, and his passion for law and hockey intersected when he served as an arbitrator for the National Hockey League.
Between hockey and the courthouse, KANE always found time for home.
"He was very hands-on," said daughter Wendy KANE. " Always involved in his children's lives and interested in their careers."
Along the way, KANE coached his four sons and spearheaded the move to bring a hockey team to York Mills Collegiate Institute in the early 1980s.
By then, the married father of six had long shaken the nickname Vacuum Cleaner -- and had been busy dispensing nicknames of his own. KANE's Friends were called the Fly, Spider and the Brush, names they kept for decades.
At one point, KANE reserved hockey tickets for a friend at the Corel Centre in Ottawa, but that friend found no tickets waiting for him at the arena.
Desperate, he tried using his nickname.
There were four tickets waiting for someone called "Haematoma."
"That's Joe," said WATTERS. "He was a judge. He was a scholar. But if he forgot your name, he would use your nickname."
