There, Marion studied Biochemistry and obtained her Ph.D. It was in the Biochemistry Department that she met another fellow Ph.D., William Wallace JOHNSTON, whom later she married. As her husband went to Halifax, his young bride followed and there they were instrumental in the development of Cod Liver Oil. They moved to Montreal and then to Toronto, where their careers changed to teaching. Marion did supply teaching and was sought after by many school boards in the west end of Toronto, until she stopped to care for her ailing husband. Marion natured and nurtured all who came in contact with her. She encouraged all to be the best they could. Thank you. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W.

Four taxi drivers attacked in 24 hours
Father of four dead after passenger stabs him in the neck, back and torso
By Timothy APPLEBY, Page A24
A 40-year-old cab driver died after being stabbed by a passenger in east Toronto early yesterday -- one in a wave of four attacks on city-area taxi drivers within 24 hours.
Mahmood BHATTI, a father of four, was found bleeding from the back, neck and chest at around 3: 30 a.m. after his Beck cab slammed into the back of a parked car at Coxwell and Danforth Avenues.
He remained in hospital on life support, but doctors pronounced him dead at 10: 20 p.m.
More than a dozen cabbies who gathered outside Saint Michael's Hospital while Mr. BHATTI's family were at his bedside mourned him as a hard-working colleague and exemplary parent.
Beck general manager Gail BECK- SOUTER said the same of Mr. BHATTI, who owned his car and had driven for the company for about six years.
"This is a real tragedy," she said. "He is a terrific guy, very enthusiastic about business. Always wanting to make improvements within the industry. The guy with the good ideas. He'll be sorely missed."
A man was spotted fleeing the scene, and police are optimistic digital photographs from the in-car camera, required in all city taxis, will lead to an arrest.
In Markham, meanwhile, a second cab driver was in stable condition after his throat was cut in a carjacking around midnight.
In a third incident on Eglinton Avenue in west-end Toronto at around 5: 40 a.m., a cabbie driving for Royal Taxi was beaten and robbed of his vehicle, apparently after an argument. The car is a blue Chevrolet Impala bearing the licence plate ABPF 744. The driver was listed in stable condition.
And early Monday, a cabbie driving two men north on Highway 400 was robbed at gunpoint of cash and his phone and left stranded by the roadside after his taxi was stolen.
It was later recovered at a curling rink in Bradford, about midway between Toronto and Barrie, and provincial police retrieved photographs of the two assailants.
The last slaying of a Toronto cab driver occurred in September, after a gap of several years, when Morteazai KHORASSANI, 42, was stabbed in his parked taxi behind an apartment building on Don Mills Road. A 19-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder.
In general, violence against the roughly 5,000 taxis and 10,000 drivers has declined steeply in recent years, after cameras and other safety measures were implemented.
"Crimes committed against cab drivers have decreased by about 70 per cent since 2000," said Jim BELL, president of Diamond Taxicab and a leader of the Toronto Taxicab Alliance, an owners group.
Mr. BELL, who knows Mr. BHATTI, credits a range of city initiatives for the decline -- the in-car cameras, global positioning devices, special emergency flashers and enhanced driver-safety training.
"This has been a tough day," he said. "But it's an anomaly. We've seen it over the years where we've had a whole rash of incidents in a very short time and then nothing happens for a couple of years. You just can't predict when and how it's going to happen."
Bruce ROBERTSON, who heads the city's licensing division, concurred.
"This is a dangerous profession, for obvious reasons, but what's happened here is not typical at all. I don't know what would explain it."
Co-op driver Edward LEIGHTON, a 16-year veteran of the roads, says he figured out the risks long ago.
"I drive during the day, in the downtown, and I haven't had a problem in 10 years," he said.
"Late at night -- that's where almost of the problems happen. I'm cautious; I think that's why I've survived. I'm choosy about what areas I go into. But a lot of drivers have big expenses, they're desperate, so they'll pick up anybody."

BECK, Lorene (née LOOSEMORE)
By Donald SANDERSON, Page A16
Wife, mother, grandma, teacher, homemaker, gardener, musician, bicyclist. Born July 29, 1932, in Lambton County, Ontario Died July 24, in London, Ontario, aged 73.
Lorene's life was not an easy one and she never missed an opportunity to tell us so. "Remarkable" is an appropriate word to describe the life of Lorene BECK, as it signifies that her time amongst us made a difference. Born in the Great Depression, Lorene LOOSEMORE knew what it was like to do without. In spite of many hardships, both physical and economic, Lorene's parents ensured that both she and her brother Jim were well-educated. The Loosemores understood the value of a strong education and Lorene never missed an opportunity to instill that value in us all.
Graduating from the London Normal School, Lorene took up the art of teaching and shortly thereafter met her husband, Robert. Lorene and Robert raised two remarkable daughters, Bonnie and Karen, who loved their mother unconditionally, perhaps as only daughters can.
Lorene's happiness was cut short by the early and untimely death of her husband, Robert. Nonetheless, there was work to be done and, with some help from her Friends and family, Lorene set out to finish the job of raising her family, now as a single mom.
Lorene was a hard worker, indeed. "Loose yourself in toil, lest you wither in despair!" she would say, and we would chuckle. In fact, we still do. However, I think that Lorene was right, and perhaps this is how she coped with a life that was imperfect and often difficult.
In spite of many hardships, Lorene's life was remarkable and positive in a number of ways: raising two daughters to be thoughtful, caring and responsible women, good wives and exceptional mothers caring for her father and her mother until the end of their lives making sure that her children were well-educated. Lorene developed and nurtured a number of lifelong Friendships, providing homemaking services and caring for a host of people in the Cherryhill community of London.
Lorene loved all things homemade and gently used. She loved music, especially when it was made in her living room or produced by her grandchildren. And she found peace in God's garden, the great outdoors, while riding her bike.
And though solitary in many respects, Lorene loved the company of good Friends; Friends who accepted her just the way she was. She was a surrogate mother to a number of young farm girls from Kent County who boarded with her while attending the University of Western Ontario. These relationships remained strong to the end of her life.
Lorene was a shrewd businesswoman. In her own words, she could "squeeze a penny and make it beg for mercy!" Some people would say that she was tight with her money. If there is one regret that many of us share, it is that, for whatever reason, Lorene chose to deprive herself of many of the simple pleasures that she so generously provided for many of us. Over time, we came to realize that, like it or not, this was the way it was going to be, and we learned to accept it. And so her life, while far from easy, was indeed remarkable, and she did, in fact achieve everything that she ever set out to accomplish, and more.
Lorene's graveside service was just as she would have wanted it. Her family and close Friends gathered around a casket, hand-crafted of freshly sanded pine by her son-in-law and lovingly upholstered by her three grandchildren. The minister read from the 23rd Psalm, two grandchildren played Bach on their violins, and a cardinal, her favourite bird, performed a fly-by. I played Amazing Grace on the bagpipes and we gave thanks for all that was good in the full and remarkable life of a woman named Lorene BECK.
Donald is Lorene BECK's son-in-law.

JOHNSTON, Doctor Marion Jane (née LAWSON)
(March 26, 1910-March 30, 2006)
After a valiant battle, Marion has moved on to a better life. Marion was the dearly loved mother of Anne WALLACE and mother-in-law to Jack, who Marion thought, could do anything! Doting grandmother of Paul (Sheila) WALLACE, Liz Wallace PATTERSON (John,) John (Anne-Marie) WALLACE and David WALLACE. Thrilled great-grandmother to Kayla, Nathan and Alyana WALLACE, Sarah and Claire WALLACE and Mason (born on Marion's Birthday) and Quinn PATTERSON. Aunt to Peter BECK and Delwin McLENNAN, who were a great source of pride and joy to Marion. Marion is predeceased by her loving husband William Wallace JOHNSTON, her daughter Marguerite, her parents, three sisters, a baby brother and nephews Gordon McLENNAN and Paul BECK. Marion and her sisters all attended Oakwood Collegiate Institute and proceeded to the University of Toronto, at a time when only a few women obtained higher education. There, Marion studied Biochemistry and obtained her Ph.D. It was in the Biochemistry Department that she met another fellow Ph.D., William Wallace JOHNSTON, whom later she married. As her husband went to Halifax, his young bride followed and there they were instrumental in the development of Cod Liver Oil. They moved to Montreal and then to Toronto, where their careers changed to teaching. Marion did supply teaching and was sought after by many school boards in the west end of Toronto, until she stopped to care for her ailing husband. Marion natured and nurtured all who came in contact with her. She encouraged all to be the best they could. Thank you. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Monday, April 3rd from 12-1 p.m. followed by a service in the chapel at 1 o'clock. Interment York Cemetery.

SAXBERG, Lorne 48
Canadian Press, Page S8
Veteran Canadian Broadcasting Corporation newsman earned Murrow award
Veteran Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news anchor Lorne SAXBERG died Saturday in a snorkelling accident while on vacation in Phuket, Thailand.
Mr. SAXBERG had a 27-year career with the country's public broadcaster and was a widely recognized news anchor on both television and radio. The 48-year-old broadcaster was one of the original anchors when Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's all-news channel Newsworld was launched in 1989, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News reported.
He was recently awarded an Edward R. Murrow Award for a documentary he wrote and hosted on the 60th anniversary of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb.
Mr. SAXBERG grew up in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and graduated from Confederation College's broadcasting program before joining Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio as an announcer in his hometown. He later moved to Toronto.
"He was the consummate pro and an exceptional journalist," said Ken BECKER, a Newsworld producer who worked with Mr. SAXBERG.
Despite Mr. SAXBERG's international success as a journalist, he never strayed far from his northwestern Ontario roots.
With his family, Mr. SAXBERG bought and restored a 130-year-old mining shop near his hometown to create the Silver Islet General Store and Tea Room, where he served as harbour master. He returned every summer to work at the store.
