OTTE, Hans
In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather Hans OTTE, who passed away one year ago March 7, 2004.
Nothing can ever take away
The love a heart holds dear.
Found memories linger every day
Remembering keeps you near.
Memories don't fade they just grow deep
For the one we loved and couldn't not keep
Life goes on we know that's true.
But not the same Hans, without you.
Sadly missed by wife Renate, children and grandchildren.

Motorcyclist dies after crash
By Sharon HO, Free Press Reporter
A 19-year-old Perth County man is dead after crashing in what police termed a motorcycle race.
But another teenager involved in the Thursday night crash denied the two were racing.
Eric WOUTERS was at a house party with 18-year-old Chris OTTEN, both from St. Paul, when they decided to race on a country road, Perth County Ontario Provincial Police said yesterday.
The road, Line 26, is about 10 kilometres southwest of Stratford.
"They were travelling well in excess of the speed limit (80 kilometres an hour,)" Const. Glen CHILDERLEY said.
OTTEN said he didn't know WOUTERS well and they were joking around when they decided to go for a ride. They rode for slightly less than a kilometre before the crash, he said.
"He was ahead of me when he got into a speed wobble -- the front end of his motorcycle started shaking.
"Then he lost control. He went down in front of me. I hit the brakes hard and flew over the handlebars."
A resident called the Ontario Provincial Police, who arrived at 11 p.m. to find the men lying in a corn field.
Both were taken to Stratford General Hospital where WOUTERS died.
OTTEN was released after being treated for a broken wrist and burns on his knees, arm and back. He also received stitches on a foot and elbow.
OTTEN said he was driving his boss's motorcycle and had only driven a motorcycle three or four times before.
Police said OTTEN has a motorcycle licence. It was not immediately clear whether WOUTERS had one.
An autopsy was to be performed on WOUTERS yesterday.

Great Uncle of Hannah, Miles, Nathaniel, Gwen, Kyla and Emma. Pete was born in Hillegom, The Netherlands and was 11 years old when his family immigrated to Canada. They settled in the London area with the dream of building a business. Pete's destiny was to work in the greenhouse. From a very young age, he loved to accompany his father to the greenhouses where he worked. So while his parents worked elsewhere to provide a steady income, Pete was instrumental in the growth of the family business from its inception. Eventually he took over the business from his parents and has steadily and successfully built it to what it is today. Through the years he employed many family members and students and taught them an admirable work ethic. He worked right along with his staff and found it very difficult when he became ill and could no longer work. Pete was an admired Boy Scout Leader and a founding member of the London and District Florists Association. Special thanks to Dr. KERR, Dr. PERERA and Mary Liz. Your compassion for and care of Pete during his four years of treatment greatly helped ease his journey. Also thank you to the special women (ie Nurses) of Victorial Hospital who helped him through his final week. Pete touched the lives of all who knew him! He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. Cremation has taken place. Memorial visitation will be held in the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North (2 blocks north of Oxford) on Thursday from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the memorial service. The family invites all to attend the celebration of his life on Friday, November 11th, 2005 at 11: 00 a.m. in the funeral home chapel. Pete's ashes will then be inurned at St. Peter's Cemetery. Memorial contributions to the London Health Sciences Foundation - Cancer Centre would be appreciated.

Edith FIRTH, Librarian And Scholar: 1927-2005
Historian who wrote the book on early Toronto was a librarian with a gift for inspired research, writes Sandra MARTIN. Although she retired in 1982, the Toronto Public Library still profits from her work
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, July 30, 2005, Page S9
A woman of impeccable intellectual standards, Edith FIRTH edited landmark collections of documents about the early history and culture of Toronto. As head of Canadian manuscripts at the Toronto Public Library for 30 years, she belonged to the tradition of scholar/librarians -- professionals who publish their own research while providing the tools that enable others to write and study.
"She created a scholarly haven for historians and geographers in the Baldwin Room," said geographer John WARKENTIN, who first met her as a graduate student in the early 1950s. "Aside from leading just about everybody and their brother to the materials that they built their reputations on, she was very important as a historian," said writer Stephen OTTO. " Almost anything she put on paper herself will stand the test of time."
"She was much more than capable," said historian Maurice CARELESS. "She was very confident and rightly so because she knew what she was doing. I felt a great sense of trustworthiness in her work." As for her books, "they really were very good."
Tall, elegant and reserved, she had a quick sharp wit that she shared with close Friends and confidants. While clumsy or inept researchers were treated courteously and given access to the documents they requested, she was known to mutter: "That man is a menace."
"We are still reaping the benefit of what she did throughout her career," said David KOTIN, her successor as manager, special collections, at the Toronto Public Library. "She put her stamp on them and the staff." The library's holdings now include 25,000 books relating to Canada published before 1900, about 30,000 broadsides, posters and ephemera and 80,000 pictures.
Edith Grace FIRTH grew up in North Bay, Ontario, where her geologist father had taken up teaching high-school science. The youngest of four children of Thomas and Amy FIRTH, she left home in the late 1940s to attend the University of Toronto, graduating with an honours degree in modern history and a degree in library science.
After graduation, she joined the staff of the Toronto Public Library, where she worked in general reference. In 1952, she was put in charge of the Treasure Room, where the library's rare books, especially Canadiana, were housed.
She began studying for a master's degree in history in the early 1950s while continuing to work at the Toronto Public Library and to prepare her first publication, Guide to the Manuscript Collections in the Toronto Public Libraries, which was issued in 1954.
Prof. WARKENTIN, the geographer, met her in J.M.S. CARELESS's senior seminar on the history of Old Ontario at that time. They were both a little older than the other students and they "hit it off together." He remembers her "steely regard" for good scholarship. "Her standards were very high, and she was quite independent-minded."
Prof. CARELESS remembers her as "highly capable and very engaging and intelligent." She never finished the graduate degree, perhaps because she was doing historical research in her job and didn't feel the need of another qualification. In 1961, she completed Early Toronto Newspapers, 1793-1867, a catalogue of newspapers published before Confederation in the Town of York and the City of Toronto.
When the Toronto Public Library opened its Reference Library Addition in its building at St. George and College Streets in 1960, Ms. FIRTH was put in charge of the new Baldwin Room of Manuscripts and Canadiana (named after Reformer Robert Baldwin, an early advocate of responsible government) and the Toronto Room, which housed current and bound volumes of Toronto newspapers and the Early Toronto Picture Collection.
She and Prof. WARKENTIN renewed their Friendship when they met up again in the early 1960s as volunteers with the Champlain Society, an organization devoted to increasing public access to and awareness of our documentary heritage. "She was the general editor of the Ontario series and I was elected to the council [of the Champlain Society]," he said. "We were quite junior members," at least compared to the "titans of Canadian history" on the board at the time -- a list that included W.L. Morton, Donald Creighton, C.P. Stacey, W.K. Lamb (Dominion archivist and the first national librarian of Canada) and Leslie Frost, the recently retired premier of Ontario. "And there was Edith -- shy and reserved, but, if she made any remarks, they listened because it was very clear that she was respected as a scholar."
The early 1960s was an optimistic time for Canadian studies in the run-up to the centennial celebrations. Ontario, and its capital city, were no exception. It was in this era, when public money was available to underwrite large historical projects, that Ms. FIRTH made her mark as the editor of The Town of York, 1793-1815, which was published by University of Toronto Press and the Champlain Society in 1962 (with financial support from the Ontario government, thanks largely to Mr. Frost and his successor, John Robarts). She had spent more than three years amassing and editing documents related to the early history of Toronto from the library's own collections, the federal and provincial archives and many other repositories and historical societies in Canada and the United States.
In a review in The Globe, Col. STACEY, the military historian, declared The Town of York "the most important book on the history of Toronto in many years." He described it as "a big handsome volume of documents" from "the day in 1793 when Col. and Mrs. John Graves SIMCOE and the Queen's Rangers arrived to found the settlement, down to the end of the War of 1812, during which the place was twice raided by the Americans."
Five years later, on the eve of the centennial year, Ms. FIRTH compiled The Town of York, 1815-1834: A Further Collection of Documents of Early Toronto. She pushed the story ahead to the incorporation of "dirty little York" into the city we know as Toronto and the election of journalist William Lyon MacKENZIE as its first mayor.
By then, the newly minted Toronto, which had more than 9,000 inhabitants and was the biggest town in Upper Canada, had survived the cholera epidemic of 1832 and the nascent battles between MacKENZIE the reformer and the members of the ruling oligarchy later known as the Family Compact. In reviewing this volume for The Globe, Col. STACEY praised Ms. FIRTH for "the skill and ingenuity with which she has hunted documents from their hiding places and explained them, and for the lucid introduction with which the volume begins."
Prof. WARKENTIN was a frequent user of the Baldwin Room, which moved to the new Raymond Moriyama facility on Yonge Street that was opened as the Metro Toronto Reference Library in the early 1970s. He had many occasions to watch Ms. FIRTH in action on the floor, or in her office "scribbling away on her research" and attending to administrative work.
Of course, she wasn't working all the time. She and her older sister, Mary, an English teacher, lived in a house in Etobicoke, cared for their widowed mother and attended to an older sister who suffered from Alzheimer's disease. When they could, the two sisters travelled -- mainly to England -- and collected commemorative China, a passion that had begun when Edith's father had given her a plate celebrating the young Princess Elizabeth after the coronation of George Virgin Islands.
After Mary died in 1975, Ms. FIRTH continued to build the collection, which eventually included a Charles II plate from 1673, wares celebrating William and Mary and the Glorious Revolution of 1688 and a 1722 mug mourning the death of Queen Anne. The collection of nearly 400 pieces, which was displayed on shelves in the recreation room in her basement, was eventually sold at auction for £160,000 at Christie's in London in 1999.
She retired in 1982 at 55, perhaps with the intention of writing more books or devoting more time to her hobbies and her nieces and nephews. The following year, she published Toronto in Art: 150 Years Through Artists' Eyes to coincide with the city's sesquicentennial. The selection was limited to 70 works by 130 artists chosen for their historical value in depicting the city from 1834 to 1983. It won the City of Toronto Book Award in 1984.
Writer Stephen OTTO met her first as a library user and then came to know her well when he headed up the Ontario Heritage Conservation program in the mid-1970s. The odd thing, says Mr. OTTO, was that she didn't write more actively or productively after she retired. It was "almost as if she wanted to throw away her scholarship," he said. Instead, she indulged her passion for Dandie Dinmont dogs, a breed of Scottish terriers.
In the past few years, the family affliction of Alzheimer's disease began flexing its deadly tentacles. Lawyer Joseph CERMAK (a dear friend who met her after he arrived as a refugee from Czechoslovakia in 1949 and found a job as an assistant at Toronto Public Library) kept a caring watch over her, organizing a housekeeper and finally a nursing home a few weeks ago.
Edith Grace FIRTH was born in Lindsay, Ontario, on January 27, 1927. She died of Alzheimer's disease in Toronto on July 23, 2005. She was 78. She is survived by a brother-in-law, a sister-in-law, six nieces and nephews and their families.
