DAVIDSON, Francis Joan (née ASHTON)
By Lee DAVIDSON, Page A18
Daughter, wife, mother, cow collector, jazz supporter. Born July 8, 1929, in Muirkirk, Ontario Died August 11, in Toronto, of pulmonary disease, aged 77.
Francis Joan was delivered on the kitchen table at The Knoll, the farm where she grew up as the only child of Edmund (Ted) Elliott ASHTON and Edith Belle (née SHANKS.) Joan's education began in the one-room school house where her mother taught Grades 1-8, and continued at Ridgetown High School and then the University of Western Ontario from which she received an honours English B.A. in 1950. It was at Western that Joan met Gord whom she dated off-and-on (but mostly on) and married on a heat-record-breaking September 13, 1952.
After marriage, Joan worked for only a short time as what today would be titled an administrative assistant at Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing (now 3M) before daughter Lee Joan was born. Within three years, Lee had two brothers, Kim Gordon and Jay Ashton, and the family embarked on a series of moves in conjunction with Gord's business career. These took them from Ontario to British Columbia to California to Minnesota, before returning to their "home and native land" in the summer of 1971. Moving on average every 1.5 years over a 20-year period, Joan devoted herself to what she considered her job: To create "home" in each new city, enrolling three children in schools, scouting out doctors, dentists and piano teachers, and generally providing the most secure and nurturing environment imaginable for her transient family.
In the Toronto home where they finally settled for a record 19 years, Joan created an homage to her rural roots with a cow-themed décor in everything from light-switch plates to bath mats and towels to coffee mugs, lamp shades and even Christmas-tree lights! In addition to her starring roles as wife and mother, she played Oma (grandmother) to son Kim's three children: In lieu of traditional Christmas stockings for her grandchildren, she decorated baskets, boxes or other containers in her signature cow theme.
Her commitment to family extended to researching, and continuing to update, the family history, tracing her paternal lineage to Thomas LEE, born in 1841 in Skibbereen, Ireland. In the interest of further strengthening family ties, Joan instigated a reunion of cousins who had spent childhood summers at The Knoll: It was such a hit, they dubbed themselves The Cow Cousins and took turns organizing annual reunions for more than 20 years.
By the mid-1970s, with the nest empty of children, if not cows, Joan had time to nurture some of her own interests, including traditional jazz, which she claimed was "better than a psychiatrist!" Both ardent supporters of the genre, Joan and Gord travelled to a plethora of festivals across North America. Between festivals, they got their weekly jazz fix by rotating weekend afternoons among the half-dozen Toronto venues that feature live traditional jazz bands where Joan would be inspired to open up one of her many hand-decorated umbrellas (yes, one with a cow theme) to join the parade of "second liners," a New Orleans jazz funeral tradition of people who follow the musicians. "People think we're out having fun, but it's hard work being a jazz fan!"
Throughout her 77 years, she made -- and maintained -- many strong and lasting Friendships. The breadth and depth of Joan's connection with other people was evinced by the number of cards, letters, telephone calls and e-mails people utilized to reach out with condolences to her family who will endeavour to carry forward her strong commitment to people and fulfill her maxim to "take care of each other."
Lee is Joan's daughter.

Mystery shrouds teen's death
Family says he was in custody before being found in river, but chief says there is no record
By Isabel TEOTONIO and Tracy HUFFMAN, Staff Reporters
The last time Kamara ASHTON's family saw him, he was leaving home to go to an all-ages club with Friends. That was almost a month ago.
Over the next few weeks, the family made a flurry of phone calls to his lawyer, Friends, police and even Toronto-area jails looking for the 18-year-old. They knew something was wrong, especially when he missed a court date on a charge that he had vowed to beat.
On November 23, they learned his body had been found three days earlier in the Humber River.
There are many unanswered questions concerning ASHTON's whereabouts between November 3 and November 20 and the cause of his death questions his family desperately wants answered.
"We're not pointing fingers at no one, we just want answers," mother Lorna ASHTON told the Toronto Star yesterday, after a news conference.
Nikishua ASHTON told reporters she contacted police days after her brother's disappearance and was told he had been arrested and was in police custody. But yesterday, police Chief Bill Blair, who personally reviewed the file, said there was no information that ASHTON was ever in custody between the date of his disappearance and discovery of his body.
Nor do they have a record of the family contacting police in the early days of his disappearance.
The sister said she later called ASHTON's lawyer and was told her brother had not contacted him and had missed a November 7 court appearance on a robbery charge.
The family then tried to file a missing person report, said the sister, adding they were initially dissuaded by police who suggested ASHTON could be in hiding after missing court.
But the next day, November 16, police did meet with the family and took down their information, she said.
A week later, they were notified ASHTON had been found in the river, behind the highrise where he lived on Weston Rd., just south of Highway 401.
Ontario's deputy coroner Doctor Jim Cairns said a cause of death has yet to be determined, but there were no obvious signs of trauma to the body. Further tests will determine if ASHTON drowned and toxicology tests, which are standard procedure, will show if there were drugs or alcohol in his system.
According to Blair, the first inquiry made by the family was after they were contacted on November 16 by officers looking for ASHTON because there had been a warrant issued after he had missed his court date. After that phone call, the family went to police to report ASHTON as missing.
At the news conference, held at the Jamaican-Canadian Association, ASHTON's two sisters and a cousin were flanked by representatives of the Black Action Defence Committee, including executive director Dudley LAWS and lawyer Selwyn PIETERS, and a lawyer with the African Canadian Legal Clinic.
"We would like a full investigation into the death of this young man," said LAWS, adding he had not contacted police for information but had gone directly to the Special Investigations Unit. "It's very obvious that something went wrong."
His comments were echoed by PIETERS, who also called for a coroner's inquest into ASHTON's death.
Special Investigations Unit spokeswoman Rose Bliss said yesterday that based on information it has at this point from the family and police, there is no reason to believe ASHTON was in police custody at the time of his death.
