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.

A link gone from our chain

Sweet memories cling to her name,
Those who loved her in life sincerely
Still love her today just the same.

DAVIDSON, Trent
In loving memory of a dear son and brother Trent DAVIDSON, who passed away one year ago today.
God looked around His garden
And saw an empty space,
Then He looked down here on earth
And saw your loving face,
He put His arms around you,
And lifted you to rest,
His garden must be beautiful,
Because He only picks the best,
A million times we'll miss you,
A million times we'll cry,
If love could have saved you,
You never would have died,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still,
In our hearts you hold a special place,
No one could ever fill,
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
Love, Mom, Cody and Sean

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.

William SIBBALD, Doctor And Educator (1946-2006)
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook and Women's College hospitals in Toronto was an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who guided the city through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and helped alter the nature of intensive-care treatment in Canada
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Bill SIBBALD was an ideas machine. Strategies, suggestions and potential solutions cascaded from his lips at the Ontario teaching hospitals where he built an international reputation, at global medical conferences and around the family dinner table.
His ideas helped to change the face of intensive-care treatment in Canada, to shape the way health care is delivered in Ontario, to guide Toronto through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis of 2003 and to inspire a new generation of critical-care professionals.
Dr. William John SIBBALD was director of critical care at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, and a professor at the University of Western Ontario from 1977 until 2000. Then he became physician-in-chief at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. In both roles, he was a physician, teacher, leader, mentor and researcher.
"I used to tell people who didn't know him they should ignore something the first time he mentioned it," says Doctor Frank RUTLEDGE, who heads the critical-care programs at Victoria Hospital and Western. "They should pay attention the second time. The third time they should put it at the top of their pile. He threw out so many ideas, if you tried to work on everything the first time it was mentioned, you'd never get anything done." Doctor Steven SHUMAK, deputy physician-in-chief, says many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas involved medical informatics, the application of computers and information systems to improve patient care and education.
Colleagues remember him as gruff but generous, an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who smoked heavily in his early years to burn off excess energy, but who gave it up after an operation for salivary gland cancer. He was an advocate for those he worked with, giving them his undivided attention in private meetings. In the workplace or on the golf course, he strove for perfection, but often interrupted a game to respond to a BlackBerry message. He occasionally told off-colour jokes and he followed hockey religiously, even when out of the country.
Dr. SIBBALD started work before dawn, even on weekends, so he could be home to spend time with his wife and five children. He coached his sons in hockey, attended his children's sporting events and told them all he was their "biggest cheerleader."
Over his career, Doctor SIBBALD wrote about 250 articles and editorials, more than 70 book chapters and some major textbooks on critical care. He was invited to give some 550 lectures in 16 countries. He held many positions with medical and critical-care associations.
Dr. Ron HOLLIDAY, a general surgeon at Victoria Hospital and a professor of surgery at Western, says Doctor SIBBALD was often thinking of issues five or 10 years down the road. And he always knew who to approach to get around the system. "We called it the SIBBALD end run," he says.
Critical-care experts around the world knew him as a friend and a trendsetter. "He was a fantastic scientist and a great clinician respected by all," says Doctor Jean-Louis Vincent, a professor of intensive care at the Free University of Brussels. "He could always ask the right question and raise the appropriate issue in any kind of debate or scientific discussion."
Bill SIBBALD, as his Friends called him, was the middle of three children of Jack SIBBALD, a banker, and Shirley (née STONE) who grew up in a suburb of Guelph, Ontario As a boy, he played basketball, football, badminton and hockey.
Gale KAY, now a retired Presbyterian minister, babysat him when he was about 12. "He was quite clear that he was going to be a doctor," she says, "not that he wanted to be a doctor, but that he was going to be one."
He was graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1970 and stayed on to complete a residency in internal medicine in 1974. That was the year he married Connie ECKERSLEY, a nurse he worked with in intensive care.
From 1974 to 1976, he did a fellowship in critical-care trauma at Wayne State University School of Medicine, in Detroit. The specialty was in its infancy in Canada at the time, and he returned to London as one of the country's few experts in the field.
At the time, Victoria Hospital had become "a massive zone of deferred maintenance," according to Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto and a long-time friend. Doctor Adam LINTON, the hospital's physician-in-chief, put the young Doctor SIBBALD in charge of the intensive-care department where he overcame professional turf wars and put together a team of specialists in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Doctor Trevor LOBB, an anesthetist at the hospital, says Doctor SIBBALD helped change "a glorified recovery room" into a critical-care trauma centre that treated patients flown in by helicopter and that trained fellows who came from around the world. In 1976, he made the news for using an armed forces pressure suit to control massive bleeding in a patient. A year later, he was in the headlines for telling a medical conference in France that the common practice of lowering the head of a critically ill shock victim might actually have detrimental effects.
In one highly publicized incident, Doctor SIBBALD, accompanied by Dr. HOLLIDAY, went to court in the middle of the night seeking permission for a blood transfusion to save the life of a Jehovah's witness boy. The judge bypassed the family's religious objections by making the boy a ward of the court, allowing the procedure to go ahead.
Much of Doctor SIBBALD's research centred on sepsis (disease-causing agents in the blood), trauma, blood substitutes, and ethical issues involving life-support and end of life. In later years, he branched out into the field of health-care policy and delivery.
For many years, he used sheep to study infections in people. "In our research lab at Victoria Hospital, you could hear the sheep baaing," Doctor HOLLIDAY says. Doctor SIBBALD introduced infections into the animals and studied the effects. Then he treated the sheep, so they didn't have to be destroyed.
He served as co-chairman of a Working Group on Critical Care in Ontario, which presented its findings to the province's health ministry in 1991. Over the years, he received many honours, including a distinguished investigator award from the American College of Critical Care Medicine in 1998.
Dr. SIBBALD turned down many job offers in the United States, and in 2000 he moved to Toronto as Sunnybrook's physician-in-chief. That put him on the front lines when many of the patients from the 2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome ended up at Sunnybrook. He threw his back out while dealing with the crisis, so his bed at home became the command post where he kept in contact with officials from hospitals, government and the military.
In one phone call, he told Doctor Tom STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, director of critical care at Toronto's Mount Sinai and University Health Network, that his staff was starting to become ill. "He's a strong man, but he broke down crying," said Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. "It struck me how soft and sensitive he is."
Two back operations followed. Doctor SIBBALD returned to work after each of them, even though he had to hobble around the hallways.
After the severe acute respiratory syndrome emergency ended, Ontario's ministry of health set up a Critical Care Steering Committee. Doctor SIBBALD and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART were among its members. Many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas showed up in the report and are now being implemented, Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART says.
In November, 2004, Doctor SIBBALD was diagnosed with colon cancer. He carried on working and, hoping for a remedy, sought treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. In early September, he was told the end was near. He resigned as Sunnybrook's chief of medicine on September 5 and spent the following week as a patient in the hospital.
Staff members still came to him for advice. Doctor Andreas LAUPACIS, now the director of a research institute at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital, asked for his opinion on an upcoming debate. "His eyes lit up," Doctor LAUPACIS says. "His energy came back. He said, 'Look at this article and that article and here's the point I would be making.' "
Dr. SIBBALD went Toronto on September 12. A day later, his fourth grandchild was born in Vancouver. His son Martyn phoned to say the baby would be called William. The next morning Doctor SIBBALD was shown an e-mailed photo of his new namesake. He died later that day.
William John SIBBALD was born in London, Ontario, on June 28, 1946. He died of colon cancer at his Toronto home on September 14, 2006. He was 60. He leaves his wife Connie; children Tammie, Martyn, Robert, Katie and Georgie; four grandchildren; his mother, Shirley, and sisters Nancy DAVIDSON and Susan TAILOR/TAYLOR.

FOX, John Hamilton
Born January 8th 1925 in Toronto, and died there March 30th 2006 peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Hospital, predeceased by his parents John Hamilton FOX and Alice Arnott FOX (née WHITE/WHYTE) and his sister Margaret DAVIDSON; and survived by his wife, Ella, sons Michael and his wife Susan, Rick and his fiancee Michele IRION, Kevin and his wife Sarah, Steven and his wife Jan and his daughter Lisa; as well as his grandchildren Rebecca, Ben, Ella, Piers, Jack, Edward, and Joe; his step-grandchildren Jennifer, Julian and Chera FRANCOEUR; and his siblings William and Joseph FOX and Lucinda KRETCHMAN. When the war broke out young "Jack" lied about his age to join the Canadian Navy at age 17, served on the H.M.C.S. Ontario and H.M.C.S. Matane, earning a Mentioned In Dispatches citation. His career in radio took him from CFJB in Brampton to the Radio Sales Bureau of Canada in Toronto and finally to CKNW in New Westminster, British Columbia, thereby inspiring a love affair with the natural beauty of a place where "you only get snow where you want it, on Christmas Cards and mountain tops." John was a committed member of Lions Club International, serving as President of clubs in Brampton and New Westminster, where he established many close Friendships which, along with those forged during the war with his comrades-in-arms, flourished through the exchange of letters and emails until the last days of his life. But John's greatest passion, as anyone who knew him can attest, was always his family. He will be greatly missed. Special thanks to all the wonderful professionals who attended to John in the Intensive Care Unit of Saint_Joe's. He could not have been better cared for. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or the charity of one's choice. For information regarding a memorial service to be held at a future date as yet to be determined, contact the Ridley Funeral Home 416-259-3705 www.ridleyfuneralhome.com.
