PETRONE, Serafina " Penny"
Serafina (Penny) PETRONE, A.T.C.M., B.A., M.A., Ph.D., Order of Ontario died unexpectedly on Monday August 22nd, 2005 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Daughter of the late Luisa SISCO and Liugi PETRONE, Dr. PETRONE was born and raised in Port Arthur (Thunder Bay.) She attended St. Joseph's School and the Port Arthur Collegiate Institute where she won the first Canadian Federation of University Women(Canadian Federation of University Women) scholarship given to an outstanding Grade 13 female student in the Lakehead. After graduating from Grade 13, Penny attended the North Bay Norman School and began, at the age of eighteen, a long and productive teaching career which encompassed the elementary, secondary, teachers' college and university levels. Beginning in the one room rural schools of the Onion Lake Road, and Five Mile, Dr. PETRONE moved on to urban elementary in Port Arthur and Windsor, Ontario and then to secondary in Chapleau, Parry Sound, Thunder Bay, Soest, Germany, and Gros-tenquin (#3 Fighter Wing) France with the Dept. of National Defence. After returning to Hillcrest High School in Thunder Bay in 1958, she was offered a teaching post in the newly-opened Lakehead Teachers' College. In 1963 she was seconded to the Dept. of External Aid to teach at Iganga Teachers' College in Uganda, East Africa. In 1965 she was transferred to Ottawa Teachers' College. A bout of breast cancer forced her to return to Lakehead Teachers' College in 1968. But she managed to turn a tragic situation into a positive life experience and continued her teaching and academic upgrading, receiving her Doctorate in English Literature from the University of Alberta. After a two year residence in Edmonton, she resumed her teaching duties at Lakehead University until her retirement. During this time she was an indefatigable researcher and lecturer, writing articles for a number of reference books as well as presenting conference papers and press and broadcast interviews in Canada and abroad. Her research on the Canadian Poet, Isabella Valancy Crawford resulted in two books The Selected Short Stories of Isabella Valancy Crawford and The Fairy Tales of Isabella Valancy Crawford. They were the first books to make Crawford's prose works publicly accessible. Dr. PETRONE also pioneered the critical study of aboriginal literature in Canada with her landmark books First People, First Voices, and Northern Voices. Her Native Literature in Canada was the first book-length history of the literature of Canada's First Peoples. For this ground-breaking research, Dr. PETRONE was made an honorary Indian Chief by the Gull Bay Ojibwa and gained international recognition. After her retirement from Lakehead University, Dr. PETRONE's scholarly focus shifted to the study of her Italian heritage. Anxious to promote Italian culture, in January 1995, she was instrumental in forming 'I Literati', a local reading group which focused on Italy's cultural heritage in the fields of literature, art, music, history and film as well as on the Italian immigrant experience in North America. She also wrote two memoirs, Breaking the Mould and Embracing Serafina. Her book Breaking the Mould was translated into Italian and launched at the University of Rome, La Sapienza in July, 2005. Dr. PETRONE was a lover of the arts and served on the Boards of Magnus Theatre and the Thunder Bay Regional Arts Council. She also served on the Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council. Over the years she held various executive offices in teachers' organizations and in the Canadian Federation of University Women. She traveled extensively and was a popular platform speaker to numerous community groups in Thunder Bay and district. During her lifetime Dr. PETRONE received many honours and awards: The Corporation of the City of Thunder Bay Citizens of Exceptional Achievement Awards (Culture) in 1981, 1984, and 1989, 'L'ordine d'onore' from the National Congress of Italian Canadians (1994) the 'Order of Ontario' (1992); Canada 124 Medal (1992); Honorary Citizen of Piane Crate (1997); the Golden Jubilee Medal (2002) the F.G. Bressani Literary Award (2002); the Kouhi award for 'her outstanding contribution to writing in Northwestern Ontario' (May 2004.) Dr. PETRONE was also the proud recipient of Lakehead University's first 'Distinguished Teacher' Award in 1989 and the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations teaching award (1988). She cherished the knowledge that she was remembered fondly by generations of students as an outstanding teacher. Dr. Penny PETRONE is survived by her brother, Alfred (Celina) in Thunder Bay, Ontario; her sister, Rita McCALL (Lawrence) in Oakville, Ontario. A brother Frank predeceased her on March 16, 1988 as well as her sister Mary on July 14, 2004. Left to mourn are many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. Dedicated teacher, author, role model and mentor, sister, aunt, friend, Penny PETRONE enriched the lives of all who knew her. She was a life-long learner who lived a full life, brimming with curiosity and discovery. She has left to those who mourn her death, the legacy of her great courage, her deep and abiding faith in God, her generosity, vivacity and passion for learning. Funeral Mass for the late Dr. PETRONE was held on Saturday, August 27th, 2005 at 9: 30 a.m. in St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church, Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Volunteer, business 'pillar' LOCKYER dies
By Debora VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter
As a corporate lawyer, Peter LOCKYER used his expertise and entrepreneurial skills to start a financial services company and serve as chairperson of a London-based bank. As a community member, LOCKYER gave his time to help the Anglican Church, Huron University College and other causes.
"He was the kind of guy who said, 'Something should be done -- let's do it,' Peter SPENCE, LOCKYER's law partner, said yesterday.
"If I had to use a phrase to describe Peter, it would be 'energetic enthusiasm,' " he added.
LOCKYER, 61, collapsed and died suddenly Monday while running with his wife, Gail.
A corporate lawyer with Lockyer Spence in London, LOCKYER was chairperson of Pacific and Western Bank of Canada, a London-based institution with more than $1 billion in assets.
He also was founder of Oak Trust Co. financial services.
LOCKYER's latest venture was a bid, with his Friends Andy SPRIET and Bob SISKIND, to buy the former central library on Queens Avenue and convert it to offices.
Yesterday, Friends described LOCKYER as energetic and athletic, committed to enterprise and volunteerism.
"London has lost a pillar in the business community," said Pacific and Western president David R. TAILOR/TAYLOR, who for 20 years has counted LOCKYER as a friend and colleague.
"He was enthusiastic, passionate, highly motivated."
And publicly low-key, said Bishop Bruce HOWE of the Anglican diocese of Huron.
"He wasn't standing up looking for accolades. But those of us who have the privilege of working with him in some of his volunteer activities knew he was there and was committed."
LOCKYER headed the diocese's investment committee and was past chairperson of the executive board of Huron University College. He served both groups "with distinction," HOWE said.
LOCKYER's sudden death shocked all who knew him.
"Peter was one of those fellows you'd think would live to 100 easily. He was the epitome of health," TAILOR/TAYLOR said.
LOCKYER was an exceptional tennis player and an avid skier who also worked out regularly in his home gym.
He was proud of a recent series of routine medical tests that showed he was in tip-top shape: "He was like a kid with a straight-A report card," SPENCE said.
He was a teen when he first met LOCKYER 31 years ago and asked the lawyer for career advice. LOCKYER became a mentor and a friend.
"We had more of a brother relationship than anything," SPENCE said of the man he described as a visionary.
"He wasn't in the spotlight a lot," SPENCE said, "but he had a lot of influence, positive influence, in the city. I don't think we or the community will fully appreciate the loss for a while."
LOCKYER also was past-president of the London Hunt and Country Club and past chairperson of the National Seniors Tennis Championships.
LOCKYER is survived by his wife, three daughters and his father. Visitation is tomorrow at the James A. Harris Funeral home, with the funeral to be held Friday at 11 a.m. at St. Paul's Cathedral.

SISSON, Barb
In loving memory of a special friend, Barb, who passed away 1 year ago today.
A year has gone by in the blink of an eye
And it's hard to believe that it's gone
But the Friendship we shared, will always be there
No matter where we call home.
We miss you, our friend
More than words can say
You're in our thoughts, every day.
Till we meet again.
Deeply missed by Mary, Jim, Dave and Tim.

SISSON, Barbara
In loving memory of Barbara SISSON.
It can't be a year since you went away, because it feels just like yesterday, we laughed, we hugged, we cried, can it really be a year since you died?
You've missed so much since you went away, some jobs have changed, the work is the same,
I'm getting ready to change my name, your daughter had a baby girl, she is a spitting image down to each little curl,
Things are hard, times have been tough,
Sometimes I didn't know if we'd make it because it was too rough.
You are missed every single day, but I think our family is going to be okay.
You taught us all to be strong and how to love, but can you keep your eye on us from above.
In our hearts you will remain, until one day we meet again.
Your Loving niece Crystal
