ADAM/ADAMS, Margaret Annie (née NORTHCOTT)
Born on May 30, 1922 in Sarnia. Passed away on Monday, February 6, 2006 in Lindsay. She was the proud daughter of John and Iva NORTHCOTT. Margaret had two sisters June Marie and Francis Mae and four brothers Jack, Cecil, Bill and Lyle all who have predeceased her. She was much loved by her step dad, James Llewellyn BURLEY, who most often called her "Annie". Margaret was married for more than 50 years to her husband Lloyd ADAM/ADAMS, who died a short three months ago. The most endearing thought by those left behind is that Lloyd and Margaret are happily romping through a meadow or finding a new adventure to explore. Margaret was and always will be loved by her many nieces and nephews, who shall miss her attentive presence. They are; The Reverend Dr. Janet BRIGHAM- TUROWSKI and Gunter, Cheryl and James CRICKS, James and Brenda SHERRELL, Shelley and Carl MAKELA, and the late John NORTHCOTT. Margaret's great nieces and nephews are; Christi and Wayne CRESS, Chase ANDERSON, Hillary and Ben ANDERSON, Brian MAKELA, Christa and Marc JONES, Jamie Sue SHERRELL, Jay SHERRELL, Larry NILES, and Kevin NILES. Her great-great-nieces and nephews are Ben, Brooke, wyatt, Bailee, Blake, Cameron, the late little Nicholas, and Myia. Margaret's passing brings to a close an era in our family but her legacy lives on in those she loved. We will all miss her but wish her God speed in her new land. Family and Friends are invited to gather for a memorial visitation at Cambridge Street United Church, Lindsay on Saturday, February 25th from 1: 00 until the time of memorial service, celebrating Margaret's life, at 2: 00 p.m. Graveside service at Clinton Cemetery in the spring.

THORNTON, Hugh Richard
Loving and adored father, kind and devoted husband to Bardie, Hugh passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family on October 25, 2006 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Born on February 4, 1929, in Woodstock, Ontario, to Jessie Robertson and Percy Sanford THORNTON, he was the youngest of eight children. Love and appreciation of music and fine art were always encouraged in the household by his mother, an accomplished pianist, and at an early age Hugh began to show great promise in drawing, illustrating and painting. He loved to talk about his days growing up in a large family where late-night chats would turn into early morning discussions of philosophy, science, the arts, and politics. The eight children loved to play pranks on each other, build water-glass orchestras and go-carts, read together and play music. Being in a large family he learned to assume responsibility early, and at age 11, he worked as a parcel boy at Loblaws in order to buy his first bike while later he took on summer jobs delivering ice and bread. The family moved to Toronto in 1938 to the High Park area where Hugh attended Keele St. Elementary School and Humberside Collegiate. At school he excelled in art, music, and literature. He met the love of his life, Barbara BRIGHAM, when she was 15 and he 16, and four years later, they were married while Hugh was attending the Ontario College of Art in the fine art program. He switched into the commercial program when he realized he would need to be able to support a family. During college, Hugh worked steady nights at Goodyear and Stelco, paying for all of his tuition. He won two scholarships and a bursary before he graduated in 1951 and continued to work at Goodyear upon graduation. Subsequently he was employed at Rabjohn Illustrators and after 1 year there, he went to Avro Aircraft where he quickly rose to department head. In 1955, after 3 years of top-secret illustration on the Arrow aircraft program, Hugh left to start his business in partnership as Industrial Art and Publicity Associates which subsequently became Thornton Hall Limited. As an employer, he was very fair and many times in the early days had to finance the payroll unbeknownst to his employees. Usually Hugh would be the last one to close the door, well into the early morning hours, as he built a successful career as illustrator, photographer, artist, copywriter, designer, and typographer. He was a rare one-stop talent that many envied and yet he was the most unassuming man to all who knew him. During the rare moments when he would take time for himself, he would relax with reading or playing Mendelssohn, Chopin, Beethoven and Bach piano pieces. Hugh and Bardie had to be thrifty in the early years, seldom living beyond their means, but still managing to always throw great parties with their many Friends and relatives. The door was always open at the Thornton household, laughter abounded, and visiting out-of-town relatives were never expected to stay in a hotel. In 1960, they bought a cottage on Buckhorn Lake and many happy weekends were spent fishing, water-skiing and boating. After Buckhorn was sold, they bought a cottage on Boshkung Lake north of Minden, Ontario, where Hugh loved to walk in the country with his artist's pad and camera in hand, creating ideas and sketches for some his most beautifully realized landscape paintings. Hugh provided a wonderful home in Don Mills for his wife and children, and loved to go on vacation with their Friends to sunny climes during the winters. He and Bardie instilled in their children strong family values of honesty, integrity, humility, and grace. Hugh was delighted to engage in conversation with his children and extended family and to be taken to task by his kids in discussions on politics or philosophy. The bantering and humour that went on around the table, even right up until the days before his passing, will be remembered and cherished by them forever. He was very proud of his children and their spouses and his adored grandchildren. Hugh was most proud of his accomplishments that occurred in his post-retirement years when he returned to painting. His many beautiful works of art adorn the halls of the family home, and the homes of Friends. He was eternally grateful to the Minden Hills Cultural Centre where his works were regularly shown each summer at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery and where, just in October, he was awarded 1st place in the People's Choice Award at the Members Show. He leaves his beloved wife of 56 years, Barbara BRIGHAM, and their loving children David LIVINGSTONE (Paula ZINOVICH) of Victoria, British Columbia, Gerry THORNTON (Stephen MOORE) of Toronto; and Andrew THORNTON (Sandra REYNOLDS) of Barrie, Ontario. Left to grieve for their adored Grandpa are Colin, Raeanne and Richard MOORE, and Jesse and Emma LIVINGSTONE. Hugh was predeceased by all seven of his siblings: Philip, Margaret (Bud BURROWS,) Bob (Phyllis, Helen,) Marion (Frank KENNEDY), Don (Mimi); Anne (Vince RUSSO), and Gerry. He was a wonderful uncle to Doctor Dan THORNTON (Donna,) Carol PAGNACCO (Ernie), Brian KENNEDY (Katie), Keith KENNEDY (Joan), Gail WILLIAMS (Ken,) Linda CLARY, the late Ted THORNTON, Andrea THORNTON, Philip RUSSO (Mary), Vicki BENOIT (Jerry), Eric Russo, Dianne THORNTON (Mark RECZKIEWICZ), Ian THORNTON (Lisa McLAUGHLIN) and Rob THORNTON. He is survived by his sisters-in-law Hilde THORNTON of Toronto (Dr. Harry HURWITZ,) Leonore THORNTON of Kingston, Jean CAWLEY of Vernon, British Columbia and children Tom, Cathy, and Joy Frances BRIGHAM (John DAVIES) of Victoria and children Becky, Tony, Judy, and Tim; along with brothers-in-law Joe BRIGHAM (Mary) of New Bern and son Phil; and Bill BRIGHAM (Pearl) of Mount Hope and children Cathy, Ruth, and Terry. He is lovingly remembered by dear cousins Kirk and Mary THORNTON of Orillia and Marilyn, Andrea, and Chrissie LEMIEUX of Toronto. He leaves many grand nieces and nephews and a great-grand niece. Deeply saddened are Friends from high school days, business and the art world, the cottages at Buckhorn and Boshkung Lakes, Don Mills and Aurora neighbours, as well as the many caregivers whose hearts were touched by his incredible courage and ceaseless wit and sense of humour. Special thanks goes to our primary care day nurse, Melissa, and primary care night nurse, Dan, our primary support worker, Jacquie, and most especially the Dies family, Bill, Joan, June, Rob, Paul, and Joanne for their generosity of spirit, Friendship, time, love, and personal care for Dad during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation (Cancer Program) would be appreciated. Address: 615 Davis Dr., Suite 304, Newmarket, Ontario. L3Y 2R2. Alternatively, donations may be made to the Hugh Thornton Award. This has been established by the Minden Hills Cultural Centre to be given to a special Grade 8 student at Archie Stouffer Elementary School in Minden who has shown an interest and/or potential in the arts. The address is: Hugh Thornton Award, c/o Dianne GRAHAM, Agnes Jamieson Gallery, 176 Bobcaygeon Road, Minden, Ontario. K0M 2K0 Cremation has taken place. A public memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 19, at Trinity Anglican Church, 79 Victoria St. in Aurora, Ontario at 2 p.m.

Evelyn is survived by her siblings; Ken GRAHAM, Cheryl and Fred SMALL and Marrianne and Marvin MAGILL, John and Burt Ann WARD were special Friends, and their presence in her life these past few years was greatly celebrated by Evelyn. Evelyn spent most of her adult life in London and then Exeter where she raised her three children with unconditional love and support. During her time in Exeter, she started the first "Beavers" pack and served for many years as a leader. These were happy times for Evelyn and nothing pleased her more than watching children, her own and others enjoying themselves.

Thankfully, she had been symptom free since that early treatment, and only very recently began the battle again. She spent her last weeks at home, as was her wish. Her family offer sincere thanks to Doctor Irene COHEN for her skilled and compassionate care of Evelyn during these last weeks. The Community Care Access Centre team and the Victorian Order of Nurses palliative team were also instrumental in supporting her stay at home. Special thanks to University Hospital palliative team, especially Carolyn.

McDONALD, Ida McNaughton (née BRILL)
By Marylyn FRYER and Thomas OATES, Page A16
Psychiatrist, world traveller, musician, painter, bridge player. Born November 13, 1913, in Teeswater, Ontario Died July 15 in London, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 92.
Ida McNaughton BRILL was born the younger of two daughters of Samuel Robbins BRILL and Mary Etta (Minnie) McNAUGHTON. Samuel BRILL was a local Liberal powerbroker and the family once hosted former Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier for dinner at their home, Coral Villa. Doctor Ida (as she was known throughout much of her life) had a full head of Anne of Green Gables red hair (a colour she favoured right until the end).
The daughter of a prominent businessman -- who owned the oldest creamery in Ontario (second oldest in Canada, established in 1875, still in operation) -- she grew up believing she could be more than just an ordinary housewife and mother. She was smart enough to skip two grades, although her teachers considered left-handedness almost a defect. "I was persuaded to change from being left-handed to right-handed. It worked," Doctor Ida noted.
Dr. Ida met her future husband, Herbert McDONALD, when she was a 14-year-old in a local church youth group but her mother was disapproving; the young 18-year-old was a mere pig farmer. A deal was struck; it was decided that Ida would pursue her education post-high school (she graduated from Wingham District High School at 16; she had travelled there by train every Monday morning and returned home Friday). She studied at Victoria College, the University of Toronto, earning her B.A. in 1936. She earned her medical degree in 1939, interning at Saint Michael's Hospital. Dr. Ida specialized in psychiatry, only one of eight women in the class of 1940 to do so, completing her training in 1942.
Having kept her end of the deal with her father (who had already passed away), Doctor Ida ended her lengthy courtship and married Herbert McDONALD on September 26, 1942, and together they raised four children (Elizabeth, James, Jeanette and Herbert Jr.) on a small family farm. During the Second World War, she put her medical skills to use, visiting patients by horse and buggy, even bringing along her infant daughter while carrying her second child.
But once her children were old enough, Doctor Ida took a full time position at the London Psychiatric Hospital, co-founding the Behaviour Modification Unit and working there until her retirement in 1981. Doctor Ida embraced the newer practices, including new drug therapies, but she also used her faith to instill strength and hope in her patients. In her soft-spoken but firm way, she was particularly good at working with violent young offenders.
Dr. Ida loved to travel. Among her earliest adventures: trips by train to the West Coast and various cruises, including one through the Panama Canal. She also travelled extensively throughout Europe.
Upon her retirement, she once again began to travel in earnest, despite her husband's increasing infirmity, seeing China, New Zealand and Australia. Following his death in 1994, Doctor Ida began to travel with Madeline WUNSCH, her former head nurse at the hospital. She spent every winter, including last winter, in Lakeland, Florida
She played the piano and was a member of various choirs throughout her life, a life member of both the Women's Institute and the service club Soroptomist International, receiving a Woman of Distinction award in 2001. Doctor Ida also became an amateur oil painter. She loved bridge, a game she loved and played well. To the end, strong and alert, she maintained a benevolent but firm role as family matriarch. Death, when it came, was not easy for her to accept. Her love of life and her spirit were simply too strong to enter that good night so easily.
Marilyn and Thomas are Friends of Ida McDONALD. They wrote this with help from the McDonald family.

Landlord found dead in his building
Gave homes to shelter residents
Body discovered in boiler room
By Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporter
Tenants in a low-rise east-end apartment building say the city's latest homicide victim, whose body was discovered yesterday morning in the basement boiler room, was the building's owner.
Homicide Det. Wayne FOWLER would only confirm the deceased was a man who had suffered trauma to his body.
But residents of 40 Craigton Dr., near Eglinton and Pharmacy Aves., identified the victim as Albert WING. Property documents list Albert Yee Kwan CHENG, among others, as one of the directors of Wing Shing Co. Ltd., the company that owned the property. They are believed to be the same man.
Some of the building's residents -- several of whom came from shelters -- painted a conflicting image of a man who offered them a place to live but who could also be cantankerous and rude. Several said the building had maintenance problems.
Marion BRILLIANT said when she was looking for an apartment for herself and children, a housing worker at the women's shelter where she was staying "called Albert."
BRILLIANT said he was good to her, but she recalled that he was "rude" to others. "He pissed off enough people in the building, but he's good to all the single moms.
"The building had to be run the way he liked it." But BRILLIANT said that didn't mean things were up to snuff.
She gave a mini-tour of her second-floor apartment, pointing to floors that weren't sanded, doors loose on their hinges and a bathroom with plaster peeling from the ceiling. She pointed to the windows, which lack the screens that are needed for her grandchildren to visit.
Still, BRILLIANT said, "If I called Albert myself, he came."
In an apartment below, Chris WYATT described the owner in a similar fashion -- as someone with good and bad qualities. He could sometimes be "ignorant," accusing tenants of things others had done, WYATT said.
He was someone who "didn't know how to talk to people," and WYATT said he didn't appreciate that his dog was blamed for urinating when it turned out to be teens who were evicted.
WYATT said before the owner "gave me a place to live" six months ago, he was living in a shelter with his two daughters.
"Don't get me wrong. I feel bad for Albert. There's no excuse for somebody to do that to somebody for whatever reason."
Det. FOWLER said police were appealing for any witnesses: who may have seen a man entering the boiler room either Monday night or yesterday morning.
WYATT said a window in the laundry room has been broken for some time, allowing easy entry from the outside.
