Brother and brother-in-law of Joyce and Dick BROUWER of Dorchester, Thea BERDAN of Richmond Hill, Art "Bunky" JANSEN Jr. and Alice VANDEVEN, Ann and Julius HALSEMA, Rita and Marcel OTTEN all of Dorchester. Special son-in-law of Pauline SMEENK of Woodstock and the late Ted SMEENK Sr. Brother-in-law to Frank and Janice SMEENK of Kleinburg, Rob and Sylvie SMEENK of Saint Marys, Helena Smeenk PRITCHARD and Wayne PRITCHARD of London, Brian SMEENK of Toronto, Ted SMEENK Jr. and Maria ROOS of Woodstock, Ben SMEENK and Monique CERESNEY of Canmore, Alberta, Tom and Sandy SMEENK of Oakville, Richard SMEENK and Kyla SCULLION of Uxbridge.

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.

SMELLIE, Lt. Col. R.G., C.D./Q.C.
The death of Robert Gordon SMELLIE on Thursday, September 29, 2005 at Victoria General Hospital, brought to a close a lifetime of service to community, province and country. Bob is survived by his wife of 25 years, Jean and her daughter Penelope (Paul) INKSETTER; his first wife, Lois; their daughters Susan (Tsugio) KURUSHIMA in Victoria, Carol (George) GAMBY in Winnipeg, and Linda (Doug) GAGE in Calgary; grandchildren; Carmen and Brad KURUSHIMA, Christopher and Andrew GAMBY, and Scott and Graham GAGE; and great-granddaughter Emily GAGE. Also surviving are Bob's sister, Patricia PARTAKER of Winnipeg; brothers George (Taisia) of Winnipeg, and Logie (Dorothea) of Esterhazy, Saskatchewan. as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and greatnephews. Bob was predeceased by his parents, George and Jessie SMELLIE of Russell and Winnipeg. His life began in 1923 at Russell, Manitoba., where Bob received his elementary and high school education. The service began when he interrupted his education at Brandon College and enlisted in the Canadian Army to serve in World War 2. Within weeks of surviving the D-Day landing at Juno Beach in Normandy, Bob was wounded and evacuated to England for treatment and recovery. Officer training followed, and he received his commission as a Lieutenant. Returning to Canada after the war, he completed his interrupted education, and married his fiancée, Lois COCHRANE of Silverton, who became mother of their three daughters. After obtaining his law degree, he acquired a legal practice in Russell. Several years later, he joined the Aikins MacAulay firm to practice law in Winnipeg. While still in Russell, Bob was elected to the provincial Legislature and served a period as Minister of Municipal Affairs with the Duff Roblin government. He subsequently chaired a provincial boundaries commission and, after retiring from the practice of law, served as chairman of the Municipal Board of Manitoba. Bob maintained a close relationship with his wartime regiment, the Royal Winnipeg Rifles and, in 1986, was appointed Honorary Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment. His service in the community included volunteer work at the Deer Lodge Centre, and with organizations like the Heart Foundation and the Manitoba and Canadian Bar Associations. After many years of membership and leadership at various levels with the Royal Canadian Legion, his service there reached a pinnacle in the early Seventies when he presided as Dominion President. Bob joined the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires in 1978 as a governor of the Manitoba Division. Serving in various provincial and national offices led to his selection as National Chairman in 1995. After 20 years of service, the Corps awarded him its highest honor - a Distinguished Service Medal. In 2003, he was awarded a Queen's Jubilee Medal. A Celebration of Bob's Life will be held in the Minto Armoury, 969 St. Matthews Ave., Winnipeg at 7: 00 p.m., on Tuesday, October 18. In lieu of flowers, Friends wishing to make tributes are encouraged to make donations in Bob's memory to either Royal Winnipeg Rifles Trust Fund, 221-5445 Roblin Blvd., Winnipeg, R3R 3W7 or to First Presbyterian Church, 61 Picardy Place, Winnipeg, R3G 0X6.

NOVAK, Sylvia
It is with great sorrow that Dr. Emilie NEWELL and Zorka SMET of London, announce the death of their beloved sister Sylvia NOVAK in her 55th year on October 14, 2005 in Hilden, Germany. She will be remembered by other family members especially her brother-in-law Eddy SMET, her niece Nicole NEWELL, and cousins in U.S.A. and Slovenija. Many Friends in Germany including her special friend Ken HARDING and her longtime friend Christine NEWLAND in London will miss her.
Sylvia was born in London on February 9, 1950 to Vinko NOVAK (deceased 2003) and Ella NOVAK (deceased 1993.) An excellent scholar, she attended Sir Adam Beck Collegiate and the University of Western Ontario graduating with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Music. A promising career as a violinist was cut short when she developed rheumatoid arthritis in her early twenties. Ever resilient and adventurous, she emigrated to Dusseldorf, Germany in 1975 to teach English and learn German. A hardworking perfectionist, she eventually ended up working at 3M in Hilden where, since 1988, she used her talent for languages and her organizational skills.
In January 2004, she was diagnosed with lung cancer. In her typical stubborn way, she grabbed the tiger by the tail. She immediately quit smoking, educated herself about the disease, and then devoted one hundred percent of her time fighting her disease. She stayed well until August 2005.
With the help of family, Friends and palliative care personnel, Sylvia was able to remain in her home until the last five days of her life. She passed away quietly in a hospice attended by Zorka and hospice staff.
A memorial service will be held in Hilden on November 27, 2005. Private family interment of ashes will take place in Canada at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society will be greatly appreciated by her family.
