TOPLEY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-04-30 published
TOPLEY, Enid Mary (née TAILOR/TAYLOR)
Mrs. Enid Mary TOPLEY passed away very peacefully in her ninety-second year at the Beverly Centre in Calgary on Friday, April 22, 2005 with her daughter Marilyn at her side. She chose to leave us on the very same day as her beloved husband of fiftyseven years Herb did, seven years earlier, even within the same hour. Enid is survived and will be deeply missed by her daughter Carol JARVIS (George) of Nanoose Bay, British Columbia; son Steve TOPLEY (Debra) of Tsawwassen, British Columbia; daughter Marilyn COSTA (Renzo) of Calgary; as well as her dear grandchildren, Drew JARVIS (Sara,) Andrea JARVIS (Nimi LANGER,) Heather TOPLEY and greatgrandchildren Jordan and Rafael, all of Vancouver. Born in Leduc, Alberta on November 19, 1913, Enid lived a long, full life in Calgary. In her formative years, she traveled extensively with her family on their famous road trips throughout North America. Her father, G.L. TAILOR/TAYLOR, founder of Taylor Signs, being an accomplished artist was capturing the magnificent landscapes as they set about exploring new horizons. These trips nurtured her lifelong interest in nature, camping, hiking and outdoor pursuits. This introduction to both art and travel continued throughout her whole life. Sports played a prominent part in her life with swimming, skating, golfing and ultimately speed skating, winning two provincial championships in that sport. As an adult, curling became the new undertaking and she enjoyed many years playing at the Glencoe Club in the ladies and the mixed leagues. When she decided to hang up the 'broom', she participated for many years on the administrative side of curling starting at the Glencoe and working her way up to various positions travelling around Alberta and the country in the capacity of chairperson of both the Alberta Senior Ladies Curling Association and Southern Alberta Ladies Curling Association. Enid had a modest nature and yet was very independent, a woman ahead of her time. She was an astute businesswoman in real estate and property management. To Enid, her family was everything and her primary focus. Her children were her pride and joy and this was extended when grandchildren arrived. In her later years, the biggest thrill of all was becoming a great-grandmother to Jordan and Rafael. Friends and relatives are welcome to join the family in a celebration of Enid's life at a reception at the Glencoe Club (636 - 29th Avenue S.W., Calgary) on Saturday, April 30, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations made directly to the Canadian National Institute of the Blind (15 Colonel Baker Place Nebraska, Calgary, Alberta T2E 4Z3) would be appreciated by the family. To email condolences leydens@arbor memorial.com heading Enid TOPLEY. Arrangements entrusted to Leyden's Funeral Home, Reception Centre and Crematorium. Tel. 403 228 4422 www.leydens.com

I Remember - Leo LABINE
Ron WICKS, a former National Hockey League referee, writes about Leo LABINE, whose obituary appeared on March 1.
By Ron WICKS, Monday, March 14, 2005 Page S9
I first met Leo LABINE in October of 1960, when I was a rookie linesman fresh out of the Sudbury Midget Hockey League. I was a buddy of Leo's teammate, Gerry TOPPAZZINI, so I had some credibility with the players. Leo was a great guy who had a lovely habit of irritating the star players on the opposing teams, and cause them to forget about scoring goals and, instead, would run around the ice trying to catch him. Rocket Richard was a favourite target. As you can imagine, there was no love lost. Back in the era of train travel, Boston would play in Montreal on a Saturday night, then both teams would travel to Westmount station and board the same train and go overnight to Boston to play round 4 the next night. Each team had their own sleeper car, but had to have breakfast together. Some mornings, I expected the fisticuffs to begin at 8 a.m., not 8 p.m. Some grudges never were resolved. About 10 years ago, Rocket Richard was refereeing an National Hockey League old-timers game in North Bay when Leo walked into the room and said, "Hi Rocket, how are you?" Maurice never looked up. "Fuck off," he mumbled and Leo kept right on going. Gilles Marotte told me he damn near fell over laughing.

HARRIS, Arthur S.
Born: Halifax, Nova Scotia, 23rd of April, 1918
Died: Mississauga, Ontario, 7th of May, 2005
Younger son of the late Reginald V. and Ethel W. HARRIS (née SMITH,) brother of the late R. Gordon HARRIS. Loving husband of Jean (née BUCKNER,) dear father of Philip and his wife Patricia, Ian and his wife Margaret and Kathryn and her husband Steven TOPPING. Proud grandfather of Joanna, Carolyn and Daniel HARRIS Laura and her husband Christopher PLANTE, Colin and Simon TOPPING and great-grandfather of Austin and Megan PLANTE. Also remembering his first wife Irene (née LAWES,) the mother of his children.
Arthur was educated at Halifax Academy, at an aeronautical technical college in London, England and at Sir George Williams College in Montreal (B.Sc.). During World War 2, he served in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a Flight Lieutenant (Engineering) and later worked at Canadair, Avro Aircraft, De Havilland and Litton Systems, as a technical writer.
Arthur had many interests including all things aeronautical, classical music, poetry, history, correct English, travel, world affairs and human rights. He was a devoted genealogist, adding to over forty years of his father's research into their family history. He was a keen member of the Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants and another great enthusiasm was his membership at the Unitarian Congregation of South Peel, his spiritual home for over forty years.
He took a great interest in the environment and nature and always loved the sea and Nova Scotia, where he and Jean spent nearly every summer from 1989 on.
We give you ships and tides and men
Anchors a-weigh and wind-filled sail
We give you back the sea again
In sailor's songs and rousing tale
And inland where the dark hills rise
Between you and the salt-thick foam
You hear the surf, the sea-gulls' cries
And eastward turn your heart towards home.
After cremation, Arthur's ashes will be returned to Nova Scotia and his final resting place will be among his kin in the HARRIS family burial ground at Oakhill Cemetery, Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.
A memorial service to celebrate Arthur's life will be held at the Unitarian Congregation of South Peel, 84 South Service Rd., Mississauga, on 18th of June, 2005, at 3: 00 p.m.
