OAKE, Conner
In loving memory of Conner OAKE who passed away on March 16, "See you when we get there"
A million times we've needed you
A million times we have cried
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died.
In Life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
For in our hearts you hold
A place no one could ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God took you home.
Remembered by Mommy, Daddy, Jaiela and J.R.

OAKES, Jean
In loving memory of my beloved Aunt who passed away on October I would sit and talk to you all day
You had so many interesting things to say.
You were an aunt unlike any other,
My friend, my mentor, my second mother.
Your honesty, compassion, and strength I admired,
You were someone who did inspire.
I miss your smile, your laugh, your grace.
You made my world a better place.
I'll always miss you

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.
