REDFORD, William James
By Robert A. KEITH, Page A22
Husband, father, educator. Born December 10, 1910 in Toronto. Died October 2, 2005, of Alzheimer's disease, aged 94.
William James REDFORD was the third of four children in the family. In 1910, Toronto was very much a horse-and-buggy town. The year Bill REDFORD was born, 180,000 automobiles were sold in North America. The Titanic struck an iceberg and famously sank when Bill was 2. During his life, he witnessed massive social and technological change, and the growth and development of his city and our nation.
Bill had a paper route as a young boy. The money he earned went to help support his family, and he continued with it through high school. He was a member of a church youth group at First Avenue Baptist Church. Mr. BENNER ran the group and they did sports and Bible study. As a young man Bill worked at Bolton Camp as a leader, and later helped run Rotary Camps for inner-city boys.
These influences lead to Bill becoming a teacher, first by taking some classes at the University of Toronto, and later at the Toronto Normal School (now Toronto Teacher's College). Along the way, Bill met, courted and married Jean ROBERTSON and they started their own family. Bill's first date with Jean was at a skating party. Jean's identical twin sister was also there; for years Bill would joke about knowing whom he wanted to marry because "Jean was the one with a mole on her hip." In 1946, Bill and Jean bought a cottage property on Baptiste Lake near Bancroft, Ontario, where they spent long summers with their children, Patricia and Robert.
To be successful in education, one must have patience, a sense of humour, genuine love and respect for children, high tolerance for ambiguity and a recognition that the greatest rewards in life don't go in one's pocket. Bill REDFORD had all these qualities.
Bill had a long career as a teacher and school administrator. He was a school principal and later a superintendent in charge of staffing for the Toronto board. Bill was also a provincial school inspector. As a school inspector, he recognized the hard work of teachers; when he was in a school, he'd "inspect" by taking over a class for the afternoon, giving the teacher time to organize and mark assignments.
For his six grandchildren, Bill REDFORD was everything a "Grandpa" is meant to be: kind, supportive, generous and funny. At his Baptiste Lake cottage, he would lead blueberry-picking expeditions and fishing trips. He taught how to mix boat gas and how to water-ski, on homemade skis with old rubber tire pieces tacked on to hold small feet. He was forever re-modelling his waterfront, and could spend days just puttering in his lakeside boathouse.
When we think of Bill REDFORD, we think of a smile and a handshake, of treats like ice cream, cashews and Rosebuds, and Laura Secord chocolate gingers. Bill used to wrap Christmas presents, always a cheque, in a jar full of sweets. Every year, the amount of the cheque would increase in accordance with age and the rate of inflation. If anyone ever protested his generosity, Bill would say, "I'd rather give with a warm hand."
We think of endless games of seven-stage rummy, of hobo songs like The Big Rock Candy Mountain, and funny stories and sayings. When he'd win a hand of rummy, Bill would shout "Holy Smoke, the preacher said; in the rain he lost his hair, and now his head resembles heaven for there is no parting there!"
In his later years, Bill suffered from Alzheimer's. He and his wife Jean lived at Central Park Lodge until her death in 1998. After that, Bill required increasing levels of care. Many people gave considerable time and energy to this. Numerous family members, former colleagues, camp counsellors and Friends attended Bill's funeral.
Rob KEITH is Bill REDFORD's grand_son.

BENNETT, Louise Christine (née JONASSON)
Died peacefully Friday, March 3 at Lion's Gate Hospital, North Vancouver, in her 81st year. Born in to an Icelandic-Canadian family in 1925 at Winnipegosis, Manitoba, Louise was the youngest of three daughters born to Gudmundur and Kristin JONASSON. Louise remained proud of, and connected to her Icelandic heritage throughout her life. She moved with her parents to Winnipeg, where she was educated and graduated from Kelvin High School. Determined to follow a career in nursing, she trained at Winnipeg General Hospital School of Nursing. There she became known to her colleagues in the Class of 1947 as 'The lady that's known as Lou'. The qualities of compassion and care for others that had led her into a nursing career remained with her throughout her life. In 1949 she married Donald BENNETT, whom she had met at a Halloween nurses' dance at war's end in 1945, and moved with him to Toronto. She moved again and again following Don's work in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, to Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, London, and Winnipeg. In 1986 they moved to Vancouver in retirement. Louise was a keen observer of nature and enjoyed experimenting with watercolours, especially in the Gatineau Hills north of Ottawa. There she also enjoyed trail skiing with her family, which included her daughter, Christine, and her two sons, Alan and Peter. She excelled at hooking rugs and enjoyed hours searching for suitable fabric and colours in company with Friends who were also hooked on hooking rugs. With many of these same Friends she delighted in visiting local auction sales in the Ottawa Valley, where strange treasures could be found. Louise was an accomplished pianist, sharing her love of music with her family and ensuring her children all learned to play the piano. Louise enjoyed travel, in Canada and abroad. Motor trips with the family through Northern Ontario to the Prairies, or east to the Maritimes or New England, were common. From Winnipeg there were trips to Florida, Arizona and British Columbia. Abroad there were visits to Hawaii, Australia, South East Asia, India, North Africa, and Europe. She shared with her children and grand children her interest in art and archaeology and in museums and ancient sites in Italy, Greece and Egypt. Louise will be remembered for her compassion and love of life, her patience and devotion to her family and her tender and loving ways. She will forever be known by her beloved granddaughters as 'gramma sweetheart', always wishing that everyone should 'have a nice time.' She will never be forgotten and always be missed by those who love her. Surviving to mourn the loss of a wonderful partner, a loving mother and grandmother, are her husband Donald; her sons Alan (Nanette) and Peter (Deborah;) and daughter Christine LONG (Peter) granddaughters Tamara, Corinne, and Sydney; grand_sons Adam and Kyle. Also surviving are Louise's sister Sylvia Allen ROSS (Dave) of Winnipeg; brother-in-law Douglas MAXWELL (Beverley;) and Don's brother Howard (Marjorie) and twin sisters Ellen DERKSEN (Walter) and Joanne JONES (Dennis.) A much loved sister, Salina (Sally MAXWELL) predeceased her in 1988. A memorial service will be held at St. Stephen's United Church, 7025 Granville St, Vancouver, on Sunday afternoon, March 12, at 3: 00 p.m. Following Louise's wishes, she has been cremated. In lieu of flowers Friends may wish to contribute to the Alzheimer's Society, or to a charity of their choice. The family wishes to thank the staff of Hollyburn House in West Vancouver, and the doctors and nurses of Lions' Gate Hospital for their dedicated care to our loving partner, mother and grandmother Louise. We also wish to thank Dr. Bruce NOBLE and his colleagues at the Seymour Medical Clinic for their care over more than fifteen years. Hollyburn Funeral Home 604-922-1221 www.HollyburnFunerals.com

TERRY, Pamela Anne (BECKWITH)
Born June 10, 1926, in Vancouver, British Columbia, died peacefully in the early morning, November 25, 2006, in Toronto, Ontario. She was pre-deceased in 2003 by her son, Symon Francis BECKWITH. She will be dearly missed by her children, Robin Jane BECKWITH (Houston, Texas), Jonathan Lewis BECKWITH (Shanghai, China), and Lawrence Matthew BECKWITH (Toronto, Ontario;) her brother, Robin TERRY (Sooke, British Columbia;) her daughter-in-law, Teri DUNN; her son-in-law Tom PHILBROOK; her grandchildren, Fawn ANDERSON, Alison Jane BECKWITH and Juliet Braden BECKWITH; and her great-grandchild, Venice ANDERSON. Pamela was a passionate trailblazer when it came to the theatre. When she first came to Toronto, she was a student of Sterndale BENNETT, director of the Canadian Theatre School. In addition to acting in the early 1950s with the American Forces Theatre Company, touring in Europe with the father of her children and her husband of more than 20 years, John BECKWITH, she acted in Toronto in several plays, with notable appearances as The Maid in Ionesco's The Bald Soprano, and Sonya in Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. She then turned to direction, with her early success marked by three plays by Ben Jonson, including Volpone with Timothy Findley as Volpone. She also directed Canadian poet and novelist, Margaret Atwood, when Atwood was a student at University of Toronto. Pamela directed the first Canadian production of Becket's Waiting for Godot in 1957, winning the Dominion Drama Festival's best direction award. The following year, she again won the Dominion Drama Festival award for best direction with a production of James Reaney's first play, The Killdeer. The Canadian poet and playwright, who always referred to her as "my first director," dedicated his play, The Easter Egg, to her. She directed it twice during the 1960s. Her forward looking vision prompted her to direct the first Canadian productions, in the 1970s, of plays by Peter Handke, Vaclav Havel and others. Her natural talent as an actress, dramatic coach, but particularly as a director, was highly respected. With a quick intelligence, immense sensitivity and understanding of nuance in her directing ventures, great command of all the elements of direction - including set construction, lighting, music, blocking, and costume - she also directed Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat, Poulenc's La Voix Humaine, and Reaney and Beckwith's Night Blooming Cereus, which combined musical elements with theatrical understanding. With humor and a sense of delight, Pamela also directed two original children's musicals by Pat Patterson for the Toronto Children's Theatre. A long-time proponent of avant garde theatre, with a strong philosophical bent, Pamela's contribution to the growth of theatre in Toronto is immeasurable. Just this past October, Pamela took charge of an opportunity for the University Alumnae Dramatic Club, by arranging and overseeing its participation in Toronto's first Nuit Blanche, a co-operative and free open-all-night celebration by the city's cultural organizations. Pamela, your brilliance will be missed by all upon whose light it shed. A celebration of her life will be held in Toronto on Thursday, November 30 at 2: 00 p.m. at the Alumnae Theatre (corner Adelaide Street East and Berkeley Street). In lieu of flowers, please send donations in her name to Doctors Without Borders, Care Canada or a small, independent arts organization of your choice.

Police looking for Friends of slain teen
Not sure what weapon was used
Boy found stabbed on Oshawa street
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
Police are trying to trace the final hours of a 15-year-old Oshawa boy found slain in a downtown parking lot Saturday evening.
Durham Region detectives also are trying to locate Friends of Jeremy BENNETT, who died of several stab wounds, said Det. Sgt. Rolf KLUEM, who heads the homicide unit.
"We still don't know what the weapon was or the reason for this tragedy," KLUEM said yesterday.
The boy's family are taking his death "quite hard" and do not want to make any public statements at this time, he said.
"I think we are all working hard towards the same goal of solving this before someone else possibly gets hurt," KLUEM said.
The youth lived with his mother in a north Oshawa co-operative housing project, but was found dead about seven kilometres south in the parking lot of a medical centre at Simcoe and Gibb Sts.
Neighbours in the south Oshawa community expressed shock that the young man apparently was left to die where he fell.
"No one deserves to die like that," said one man who would not give his name.
Police are canvassing Oshawa's downtown area, which has a significant population of migrant and homeless youth.
A post-mortem examination Sunday showed he died of several "sharp force trauma" wounds, similar to stab wounds.
