DUMFRIES, Phyllis
In loving memory of a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Phyllis, who passed away, March 16th, 2003.
When you lived upon this earth,
You were the very best
Your love extended from east to west
You touched so many lives,
You didn't even know that you did
Randy said that you were an angel on this earth.
You must have been one right from your birth
Now you are up in Heaven,
And we miss you so
But we understand now why you had to go.
We still miss you so much daughter Helen (Randy), son Dave (Sammy) granddaughters Heather (Steve) and Bonnie, and great-grandchildren Amanda, Kaitlyn, Brandon, Tyler and Emily.

Herb COONS, Aviator And Engineer 1918-2005
Royal Canadian Air Force pilot used his DC-3 transport plane to break up an attack by Japanese Zeros. His tenacious action earned him another Distinguished Flying Cross
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, June 21, 2005, Page S9
Herb COONS was one of the few Canadian pilots to serve in the war against Japan. He was decorated for flying his unarmed Dakota, the military version of a DC-3, straight at a Japanese fighter plane.
On January 15, 1945, Squadron Leader COONS was leading seven Dakota aircraft in a history-making mission over Burma. They were dropping fuel and other supplies to elite British and Indian jungle troops, known as the Chindits, who were fighting behind enemy lines. Never before had a large fighting force been supplied entirely from the air.
The Royal Canadian Air Force planes were attacked by seven Japanese Zeros. "As one of the Zeros bore down on COONS's aircraft, he waited until it was only 400 yards away, then, with super-human effort, he yanked the lumbering transport into as tight and as steep a turn as he could," wrote Arthur Bishop in his book, Courage in the Air, a series of stories about Canadian air heroes.
The Zero slipped by and Mr. COONS repeated the manoeuvre four more times. When the fighter gave up and attacked other planes, he flew at the Zero to draw fire away from his colleagues. Mr. COONS repeated the trick, but was so low his wing scraped the jungle canopy. The fighters called off their attack and he managed to limp back to the airfield in India with a large section of the wing missing. The action resulted in a "bar" to a Distinguished Flying Cross he had earlier won. (The bar, in effect, was a second Distinguished Flying Cross.)
There were two Royal Canadian Air Force squadrons (435 and 436) sent to the Burma campaign in December of 1944. There was political pressure in Ottawa to have the squadrons return as soon as they arrived. For one thing, politicians (and even some senior Royal Canadian Air Force staff) thought flying in Southeast Asia was "as restful as a holiday at a luxury spa," according to Robert FARQUHARSON, a University of Toronto professor who later wrote a book about the Royal Canadian Air Force in Second World War Burma.
"For the squadron as a whole, this January 12 encounter with the enemy was a rude and abrupt awakening to the reality of war," he wrote in For Your Tomorrow: Canadians and the Burma Campaign 1941-1945. "Six squadron member had been killed, five wounded, two aircraft shot down, and one badly damaged."
It was dangerous work flying across unmapped mountains and uncharted jungles. "The real problems for us were flying in the mountains and the monsoon weather," Prof. FARQUHARSON once told Legion Magazine. "We got pretty good at looking ahead and seeing where the darkness in the clouds was and flying around it.
"One day I misjudged which way it was moving and it turned out it was coming towards me. One moment we were going up at about 5,000 feet a minute and the next we were going down at the same rate. The co-pilot and I both had our feet on the dashboard and were pulling on the stick to get out of the downdraft. We then climbed to get free of the mountains."
Pilots and crew, often supplemented by ground crew who volunteered to go along as "kickers" to help push out cargo, regularly made two and sometimes three flights a day. "We had to fly every day," said Prof. FARQUHARSON. " The army depended upon it... Up in the north in the mountains we were dropping supplies all the time. As the army moved south, the land became flatter and we landed more than we dropped."
Herb COONS, who was born on a farm in Matilda Township, grew up in eastern Ontario. His family was descended from Pennsylvania Dutch settlers who had migrated north. His father died when he was a still in public school. His mother later married a teacher who became a high-school principal and then a professor at Queen's University in Kingston. The family lived in several places in eastern Ontario, including Napanee and Collins Bay.
After high school, Mr. COONS went to the University of Toronto, where he was studying mining engineering when the Second World War broke out. He finished his year, then joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in June of 1940 (two brothers followed him). He was commissioned a flying officer 10 months later and was assigned to the Royal Air Force's Coastal Command as a navigator on Sunderland flying boats.
The Sunderland was designed as an airliner, a double-decker plane with sleeping quarters and a galley to prepare hot food. Amphibious, it took off and landed on water. The military version was used in long-range, anti-submarine patrols. A large, four-engine plane one of them once landed on the Atlantic to rescue 34 seamen from a torpedoed merchant ship -- it carried a big payload of bombs and depth charges for use against U-boats.
The Sunderlands were slow at 110 knots, but bristled with firepower. With 14 machine guns pointing in every direction, the planes could hold their own against German fighters. German airmen called them Fliegende Stachelsweine (flying porcupine).
Herb COONS was in a Sunderland that shot down a Focke-Wolfe Kurrier, Germany's only four-engine bomber. On the other hand, two of his aircraft had to ditch in the ocean. Flying Officer COONS, as he then was, distinguished himself by pinpointing the position of the Sunderland so the crew could be rescued. Three times, his Sunderland was attacked by fighters. On one occasion, the plane caught fire and he put it out. It was one of the actions that won him his first Distinguished Flying Cross.
"When on another sortie, the bomb room caught fire... this officer gallantly assisted in extinguishing the outbreak," read part of the citation for his Distinguished Flying Cross. "Flying Officer COONS is an extremely cool and efficient navigator whose courage and devotion to duty have been most praiseworthy."
One of his Friends and fellow airmen said Mr. COONS later described the action with an understated modesty. "There was a fire between me and the door," he told Wally DUMONT. "I had no choice but to put it out."
Mr. COONS flew in long-range missions from bases in Northern Ireland and as far south as Sierra Leone in West Africa. Flights were as long as 20 hours, and the 11-man crew came to appreciate the Sunderland's on-board galley. Some crew members would sleep. Navigator COONS was once woken up and called to the cockpit. The plane was over Spanish territory and was being fired on by anti-aircraft guns. "Where are we?" asked the confused pilot.
"I'd say we're over enemy territory," replied Mr. COONS.
Eventually, Mr. COONS was selected for pilot training and sent home to Canada to learn how to fly. From there he was assigned to the Far East campaign. Until then, like many Canadians, he enjoyed his time in Britain. His Canadian accent meant the class-conscious British couldn't pigeonhole him. As a farm kid from eastern Ontario, he relished spending his leave at a posh estate in England's Lake District. Only once during the war did he manage to meet up with both his brothers, who were also in the Royal Canadian Air Force. His brother Gib was a Spitfire pilot who survived his younger brother Willis, also in Coastal Command, did not.
Herb COONS was not always easy to get along with, said Gib COONS. The temperament that would make a man fly a slow unarmed plane at a fast, armed fighter came out later in life. "He could be abrasive."
After the war, Mr. COONS returned to the University of Toronto and finished his degree. Although he had worked in underground mines during summers before the war, he went into civil engineering. In the early 1950s, he read in the newspaper that E.P. TAILOR/TAYLOR was turning Toronto-area farmland into the suburb of Don Mills. He decided to approach the financier Taylor directly.
"He walked into his office and said he could do the surveying for him," said his son, Bill. "After a long meeting, Dad got the business. Later, he had as many as 40 people working for him and they also surveyed sections for the new 401 highway."
Mr. COONS's business career had its highs and lows. He later got involved in some mining projects where he both made money and lost money. Always a curious man, he took a course in computer programming long before the advent of the International Business Machines Corporation Personal Computer. He had wanted to understand how computers worked.
Mr. COONS stopped working about 10 years ago. He spent the last five years of his life in Fredericton living with his daughter Nancy and her family.
Herbert Lindsay COONS was born near Morrisburg, Ontario, on February 13, 1918. He died in Fredericton on April 29, 2005. His wife, Doris COOKE, died 10 years ago. He is survived by his daughters Nancy, Linda and Annalee and by his son Bill.

BAYER, Mary Elizabeth, C.M., M.A., LL.D.
(February 10, 1925-September 7, 2005)
A sixth generation descendant of Red River settlers, Mary Elizabeth BAYER was the daughter of Anne Farquharson PATTESON and Granville Lovejoy BAYER. Her grandfather, Thomas Edward PATTESON, was a member of the North West Mounted Police, great grandfather the Hon. E.H.G.G. HAY was the first leader of the opposition in Manitoba's first Legislature, and great great-grandfather Hugh GIBSON was with the Hudson's Bay Company at York Factory. Mary Liz was one of two children; her beloved brother Edward was killed in action with the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1944. Alberta-born Mary Liz was raised and educated in Manitoba. An outstanding Canadian, she was a champion of great causes, a poet, patriot, public servant, communicator, educator, advocate, moderator, and volunteer leader. In Manitoba she was Executive Director of the Volunteer Bureau and of the Manitoba Centennial Corporation, founding Executive Director of the Manitoba Arts Council, founding Chair of Heritage Winnipeg, founding member of the Assembly of Arts Administrators, pioneered adult daytime television programming and served as the provincial government's first woman Assistant Deputy Minister. Nationally, Mary Liz brought her wisdom, humour, tact and deep understanding of Canadians to her roles as National President of Heritage Canada, member of the National Executive of the Girl Guides of Canada, member of Charlottetown's Confederation Centre for the Arts and the Canadian Commission for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. She also served with great distinction on the Selection Committees for both the Rhodes Scholarships and the Royal Bank Award.
After retiring to Victoria in 1980, Mary Liz, with unflagging creativity and energy, continued to guide and advise, as Chair of the Greater Victoria Library Board, founding member of the Greater Victoria Arts Commission, Executive member of the Provincial Capital Commission, member of the Honourary Board of the Victoria Foundation, Chair of the British Columbia Heritage Society, and founding Chair of the Province-wide arts and heritage advocacy group, Culture Acts Now. Her numerous awards include an Honourary LL.D. from the University of Winnipeg, the University of Manitoba Distinguished Alumni Award, Girl Guides of Canada Merit Award and the Canadian Centennial Medal. In 1994 she was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada and in 2000 she was named an Honourary Citizen of Victoria. She was the 2004 recipient of the Woman of Distinction Award for Lifetime Achievement and in June 2005 received the British Columbia Heritage Award.
Mary Liz's greatest talent was in inspiring and motivating others. She believed in God, honour, justice, noblesse oblige, encouraging youth and a future for our lovely planet. She will be deeply missed by her friend of fifty-five years and co-worker for good causes, Anne DUMOULIN, cousins Mary McMULLEN, David (Erika) McMULLEN and Louise (Jim) KAGAN, many other family members, and thousands of Friends throughout Canada and around the world. Heartfelt appreciation is extended to loving Friends, and the many dedicated medical and health care practitioners, who assisted Mary Liz in her long and most courageous battle with cancer. A memorial service will be held at St. Saviour's Anglican Church, 310 Henry Street, on Monday, September 12 at 2: 00 p.m. Contributions may be made to the Mary Elizabeth Bayer Heritage Fund at the Victoria Foundation.
