BELL, Robert Archibald "Archie" Lt. Col, Lake Superior Regiment, Retired.
Died suddenly but peacefully on April 28, 2005 at Wyndham Manor, Oakville, in his 88th year. Much loved father of Lesley (Rod MORRISON) and Alison (Doug CHARLTON.) Born in Port Arthur, Archie was proud of his Scottish heritage and that his people came from the Hebridian island of Colonsay. Archie's war years defined him. He landed at Juno Beach with his regiment in August 1944, was wounded in action, and spent the remainder of the war in military hospitals in England and Canada, returning to Thunder Bay in 1946. Archie joined the family moving business, Angus Bell Cartage, in 1947, retiring in 1968. He then pursued successful real estate and sales careers. He was a devoted volunteer with countless organizations, including the Liberal Party of Canada, the Port Arthur General Hospital and the Lake Superior Regiment Old Boys Association. Archie married Barbara GILLESPIE in 1949. Their marriage was sustained by love and humour, which helped them through the loss of their daughter Nancy at 20 in 1974. Barbara died unexpectedly in 1986. In addition to his daughters, Archie is survived by brother Bruce (Anita), sister Marion (Wally), sister in law, Mona and many nieces and nephews. His sisters Jessie SPOONER (Art) and Dodie STRACHAN (Jack) and brother Ken predeceased him. Archie was fully engaged in life until the day he died. He will be remembered for his wry wit and engaging conversation. There will never be another like him. Lesley and Alison would like to thank the staff of Wyndham Manor for their exceptional and compassionate care of their father. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Northern Cancer Research Foundation, Thunder Bay or Port Arthur Branch 5 Building Fund. Funeral service will be held at St. Paul's United Church, Thunder Bay on Tuesday, May 3rd, 11 a.m. Sargent and son Ltd. 1-866-242-5351.

HARBRON, Sheila Elizabeth (née LESTER) B.A., B.Ed., U.E.
On Saturday, December 3 at Central Park Lodge Westside in Etobicoke, at the age of 79, after a long illness. Beloved wife of 55 years of John, sister of Richard LESTER of West Vancouver, dearly loved mother of Patrick of Kinderhook, New York Christopher of Regina, and Ann of Toronto, and grandmother of Katie and Jessie of Regina. Sister-in-law to the late Janet BRAIDE, and to Florence KRISTJANSON and Lillian P. DYSON- BABCOCK. Mother-in-law to Dana SPOT and John WESTHEUSER. Among Sheila's ancestors are John Pritchard (one of the original settlers of Rupert's Land, an area encompassing most of what later became Western Canada), Egerton Ryerson, a United Empire Loyalist and a leading figure in 19th-century Ontario education and politics, and Elizabeth Matheson, one of the first female doctors in Canada. Sheila lived a full and active life, and made many contributions to her community. Born in Toronto on November 29, 1926, and raised in that city, she attended Oakwood Collegiate and graduated from Trinity College at the University of Toronto in 1948. She married John Davison HARBRON on September 20, 1950 and devoted much of her energies over the next three decades to being a devoted wife and mother. She was the first social convener of the newly founded Victoria Symphony Orchestra in 1952, and was a scriptwriter for radio station CJVI in Victoria in 1952-53. The couple moved to Toronto in 1953. In the early 1970s, while still raising her family, Sheila began working as a substitute teacher. She returned to university part-time and earned her B.Ed. from the University of Toronto in 1976, and spent the next 20 years as a much-in-demand substitute teacher at Etobicoke high schools. Sheila was president of the Etobicoke branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women in 1966-67, and president of the Governor Simcoe branch of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada from 1989-92. She was a member of the Ryerse-Ryerson Family Association, produced a family tree of Ryerson descendants in 1983, and was given a Volunteer Service Award by the government of Ontario in 1998 for her work with the United Empire Loyalists. Sheila was also an active member of St. George's Church-on-the Hill in Etobicoke, including serving as editor of the church newsletter The Lance from 1989-92. Sheila will be profoundly missed by her family and her many lifelong Friends. The family would like to convey their deepest gratitude to Sheila's caregivers and to Dr. Sam GREENSPAN at Central Park Lodge Westside, and all who have supported us through her long illness. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto. The memorial and celebration of Sheila's life will be held at St. George's Church on-the-Hill on Thursday. December 22, at 11 a.m. Interment, to be attended by the immediate family, will be at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery at 2 p.m.
