Kaye SARGENT, Oxford County Libertarian stalwart, dies
Was a candidate in every provincial and federal election since By Bruce URQUHART, Sun Media, Wed., November 22, 2006
Innerkip -- Kaye SARGENT, a fixture of Oxford County's political scene for more than two decades, has died.
SARGENT -- who ran in every provincial and federal election since 1981 -- died Tuesday morning at Woodstock General Hospital.
She was remembered today for her devotion to her family and to Libertarian principles.
And she was remembered as someone who counted political foes as her personal Friends.
SARGENT was founder and president of the local Libertarian Party riding association, as well as deputy leader of the Ontario organization, which urged voters to put their civil liberties above the needs of the state.
“She took her politics very seriously,” said Doctor Bruce HALLIDAY, a former Tory Oxford member of Parliament, “but that didn't preclude her from Friendships with people of different political views&hellip We were always invited to her Christmas party every year. She was an exceptional person.&rdquo
Greig MORDUE, Liberal candidate in the most recent federal election, said SARGENT was always warm and engaging: “The democratic process in Oxford County really lost a standard bearer.&rdquo
Libertarian leader Jean-Serge BRISSON said SARGENT took every opportunity to voice her convictions.
“It's going to be a big loss for us. We lost a major icon of our party,” BRISSON said.
Oxford member of Parliament Dave MacKENZIE remembered SARGENT as a “great lady” who put her family before politics.
“She thought the world of her children and grandchildren. She was so proud of all of their accomplishments.&rdquo
Predeceased by her husband Clifford, SARGENT is survived by her two daughters, Sherry CAMBOIA and Joanna SARGENT, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Her daughters remembered a woman of uncommon compassion and tremendous energy.
CAMBOIA described her mother as the “original tree hugger,” saying SARGENT's ardent environmentalism came well before conservation became a popular movement.
SARGENT was also a gifted writer and wrote her memoirs -- “scribbles,&rdquo she called them -- by hand.
SARGENT was also very fond of music and loved singing and dancing. During their youths, SARGENT and her husband would often visit the Stork Club in Port Stanley and dazzle other visitors with their accomplished dancing.
SARGENT's family is inviting Friends to Friday's visitation at the Smith-LeRoy Funeral Home from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at the Berean Bible Church on Saturday at 1 p.m.

EBY, Herbert Clifton
Herbert Clifton EBY of Feversham passed away in Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre on January 7, 2006 in his 90th year.
Herb was born in Elsinor, Ontario on August 8, 1916, the son of the late Gideon and Georgina EBY. In 1926 the EBY's left the farm at Elsinor and moved to Feversham and purchased what was to become known as "Eby's Store".
Herb aftended public and continuation school in Feversham and in 1936 he married Madge DAVIDSON. The young couple resided in the apartment above the family store and Herb worked for his father. In 1937 their son Stephen was born and shortly thereafter, Herb, Madge and baby moved to Barrie where he worked at a hardware store and drove a taxi.
In 1946 they returned to Feversham to take over the general store as the elder EBY's moved to Walters Falls. In 1950 their daughter, Sally May, was born. Herb purchased an insurance business from Norman HARRIS and for the next 15 years he and Madge operated the store and the insurance business.
Herb was an active member of many community organizations and as many of his generation was involved in getting what is now known as the "old community centre" established. He enjoyed many years in the bowling league there. The church was an important part of the EBY's life and for 40 years Herb was an Elder at Burns' Presbyterian Church in Feversham.
1986 was a landmark year for the EBY's as they celebrated 40 years of operating the store, their 50th wedding anniversary and made the decision to sell the store and retire to the home they purchased in the village.
Left to mourn his passing are Madge, his wife of 69 years, son Steve, daughter Sally, son-in-law John HOOD, grand_son Kevin HOOD, sisters Marguerite FORSYTH and Marion DOBIE as well as many nieces, nephews and Friends.
A funeral service was held in Burns Church on January 10, 2006 with Dr. David GLADWELL officiating. Pallbearers were Kevin HOOD, Todd ARMSTRONG, Scott ARDIEL, Bill BRISTOW, Wayne DAVIDSON, Lonnie HUDSON. Honourary pallbearers were Elmer MULLIN, Bruce DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Lloyd HUDSON, Burt HALE and Murray LASHOVICH.
Flowerbearers were Reta PHILLIPS, Bonnie DAVIDSON, Carol WAGSTAFF, Mary Lynn McCAULEY, Pamela BRISTOW, Cindi ALLEN, April HUBBARD, Lois PLUMMER and Jane ARDIEL. An excellent eulogy was provided by Burt HALE and a reading by John HOOD. Evelyn DARGAVEL and Kenton HUDSON shared their gift of music and Burt HALE, Rev. Charles JACKSON, Barbara SHIER and Kenton HUDSON sang "Because He Lives". Following the service a large crowd enjoyed the wonderful lunch organized by the Osprey Museum Committee assisted by Friends in the community.
Herb will be remembered for his quiet, gentle manner and he will be missed walking the streets of Feversham with his wee dog Lori.
