BOYD, Minnie Marian (née SWANTON)
Minnie Marian was born on April 15, 1921 to Emily and William SWANTON who resided on the East Back Line, Markdale. She was the younger sister to her brother George who was five years her senior. The four were a tight knit farming family who grew up with strong values and the hearty Grey county work ethic.
Minnie finished high school and then went off to teacher's college. She began her teaching career in a one room schoolhouse in Ceylon with grades one through eight; quite a challenge for a newly graduated young teacher. When she went to Toronto to teach, she tackled this job with determination and passion and enjoyed the many opportunities it presented.
It was during this time that she met her soul mate for life local Flesherton boy, George BOYD. They were married in July 1944 with the entire Boyd and Swanton family in attendance. George and Minnie had three children, Brenda, Randy and Wendy. Minnie was devoted to her family. Whether as a homemaker to a young family or as the accountant/receptionist at the family business, Boyd Bros. Motors, Minnie excelled. She also made time for many pursuits including sewing, painting and cooking. The family enjoyed great love and support from each other.
Minnie and George had a great enthusiasm for life. They both enjoyed impromptu parties with Friends and family and Minnie was always ready with lots of food and stories to tell. They had many great adventures through the family trips around the world and even day trips in the area. Minnie loved to dance and it was usually George and Minnie who were first up to "cut a rug" on the dance floor. George was the love of her life and the two were inseparable until almost three years ago when George passed away. Although she suffered greatly from heart-break and arthritis in the final years, Minnie never let the pain dampen her positive spirit.
The service celebrating Minnie's life took place on Wednesday, February 15 at the Fawcett Funeral Home in Flesherton. Minnie's daughter-in-law, Kim BOYD composed and delivered a wonderful tribute to Minnie. A second loving tribute was written by her daughter, Wendy and read by Reverend Martin GARNISS. The Boyd family appreciated the beautiful music of David FRIES, the religious message of Reverend Martin GARNISS and the excellent lunch served by the ladies of Flesherton's Saint John's United Church. Thanks are also extended to the pallbearers Don BRODIE, Jack DAVIS, Kevin DAY, Tyler DAY, Bob EDWARDS and Jim WILLIAMS.
Relatives and Friends will remember Minnie's generosity, kind spirit and keen sense of humour. She will be greatly missed by her children, Brenda, Randy and Wendy, her daughter-in-law Kim, her son-in-law Kevin, her six grandchildren, Lindsay, Ferris, Kelsey, Melanie, Tyler and Samantha and her loving relatives and Friends.
The Boyd family give thanks for Minnie's life and are comforted to know that she will once again be with her one true love, George. Minnie's spirit will remain in the family's hearts and minds forever.

JOHNSTONE, Madam Justice Cecilia
On April 15, 2006, Madam Justice Cecilia JOHNSTONE of Edmonton passed away at the age of 54 years after a lengthy battle with cancer. She lived a life of passion and grace. Cecilia is survived by her loving husband, John DAY and his children, Jennifer, Jacquie and Olivia; her mother, Anne and her lifelong family friend, Ernie FOSS; her brother, Tim and his wife, Ruby; her uncle and aunts and cousins. Cecilia was predeceased by her father, Lawrence in 1962. This extraordinary woman was an accomplished teacher, lawyer and jurist in our community. She was born, raised and educated in Edmonton. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alberta in 1973 and her LLB from the Faculty of Law in 1974. Cecilia articled with the then Stratton Lucas firm, to Joseph J. Stratton (later a Justice of the Court of Appeal), and was admitted to the Bar in 1975. She remained with the firm, practicing in the area of wills and estates until her appointment to the Court of Queen's Bench in 1996. She was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1988. Cecilia was a natural teacher. She was course head of the Wills and Estates Bar Admission Course, a member of the Board of Directors for the Legal Education Society of Alberta, a panelist for numerous legal education seminars, a mentor in the Wills and Estates Program and a sessional instructor at the Faculty of Law. Cecilia was a leader at the bar. She was President of the Edmonton Bar Association (1988-89); the first female President of the Alberta Branch of the Canadian Bar Association (1990-91); a member of the American Bar Association; and the National President of the Canadian Bar Association (1993-94). Cecilia courageously championed the fair treatment of women in the legal system and played a major role in the adoption of the recommendations of the 1993 Bertha Wilson Task Force on gender equality. To celebrate her accomplishments in promoting equality in Canada, the Canadian Bar Association honoured Cecilia with the Touchstone Award in 1997. She also received the Distinguished Service Award for the Profession in 1995 from the Law Society of Alberta and the Canadian Bar Association (Alberta Branch). In 2000, she received the first Alumni Honour Award from the University of Alberta, recognizing her service to the community and her significant contribution to the legal profession. Cecilia was devoted to the community. She served as a member of the Board of Directors of Junior Achievement, President of the Saint Thomas Moore Lawyers' Guild, President of the Estate Planning Council, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Western Catholic Reporter, Chair of the Northern Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation and then member of the Hospital's Board of Management (now the Stollery Children's Health Centre), Chancellor of Newman Theological College, Chair of the Judges' Forum of the Canadian Bar Association and as a member of various governmental advisory committees. Cecilia was a woman well loved by a large circle of family and Friends in her community, across the country, and beyond. Cecilia was known for her passionate efforts on behalf of others, whether ensuring underprivileged school children would have Christmas or penning ground-breaking family or human rights decisions. We are sad to lose this elegant flame of conviction and compassion. Mass of Christian Burial Saturday, April 22 at 10: 00 a.m. at Saint_Joseph's Basilica, 10044-113 Street, Edmonton with Reverend Mike McCaffery officiating, Concelebrants - Most Reverend J.N.

Leslie WITT, 72: Chess 'superstar'
Received carved set from Fidel Castro
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Leslie WITT never talked about the time he beat Bobby Fischer at his own game -- but others did for years afterwards.
It was 1964 and the chess world's greatest prodigy had not yet knocked out Russian great Boris Spassky from his world domination, but the 19-year-old was still a huge chess star and all of Montreal's and Toronto's chess players were thrilled when he showed up for some exhibition matches.
His first day in Montreal, Fischer was subjected to a vapid television interview. He hated being asked questions about dating; he actually hated talking about anything other than chess but the highlight of the show was the one-minute chess match he played against WITT, then the city's best player as well as a member of the Canadian Olympic chess team.
Fischer was -- naturally -- confident. He'd already played two exhibition games -- one in which he faced 56 people at once, beating them all, the other where he took on 10 players with clocks. They were better players but Fischer completed his 40 moves in under two hours, winning every game.
He could be forgiven for thinking he had another easy ride ahead. WITT, a Hungarian émigré, was unprepossessing -- an affable, smiling man who earned his living as a television repairman, not particularly tall, a little on the pudgy side.
"But Les was one of the speediest players I have ever seen," recalled Denis ALLAN, an assistant Crown attorney in Hamilton who was a young chess player at the time. "Not only could he think fast, but the speed with which he could move his hands was incredible. Bobby was not happy about losing. He made that clear."
Much later that night everybody got together at the Boulevard Club, where chess was played seven days a week, and Fischer and WITT faced off for about a dozen five-minute games.
"Bobby cleaned him out," ALLAN recalled. "Leslie won maybe one, but even one game is pretty good. Bobby Fischer was a genius."
But WITT was pretty darn good as well: a four-time Montreal chess champion, three-time winner of the Montreal Closed Championship, winner of the Quebec Provincial Championship, the Ontario Provincial Championship and, in 1962, the Canadian Open Chess Championship, held that year in Ottawa, with a perfect score of 9-0.
He was a member of the Canadian chess Olympic team at the 1964 Olympiad held in Tel Aviv, the 1966 Olympiad in Havana and the 1970 event in Germany.
"I remember the Tel Aviv Olympiad because it was the first time the Canadian team made the A group -- the top two teams," said Zvonko VRANESIC, a University of Toronto professor who often played WITT. In the '60s he and WITT were vying for the country's top spot.
"They were the two superstars," said Toronto Star chess columnist Lawrence DAY. "It was a great rivalry."
Both men were representing Canada when Cuban leader Fidel Castro, a big chess fan, pulled out all the stops for the Olympiad in Havana -- putting them up in the best hotel, even opening the event himself playing an exhibition match with the ubiquitous Fischer. Castro presented each player with a gorgeous wooden chess set, in a splendid carved box.
In 1969, WITT won a Brilliancy Prize in the Canadian Closed tournament. That same year he was named an International Master, which is one rank below Grand Master.
Laszlo WITT was born in Budapest, where chess is respected and popular, and the best chess players accorded the accolades reserved for hockey players in North America. He began playing the game at age 8 and tournaments when 15. By 17, he was the premier player for the Hungarian junior national team.
He was in Vienna for a tournament during the three weeks in October and November of 1956 of the Hungarian Revolution. His wife, Viola, and 4½-year-old daughter, Sylvia, had not been permitted to accompany him to the tournament. "We were collateral," said Sylvia SANKEY, now a stage manager who lives in Winnipeg.
Jews who had pretended to be Christians since the war when most of the family's male relatives -- including WITT's father -- were taken to Auschwitz concentration camp where they perished, they quickly decided to flee the country. Mother and daughter crossed the border to Austria to the sounds of Russians shooting on one side and Germans on the other. For three weeks they had hid out in farmhouses and fields.
They were taken to refugee camp outside Vienna where they were eventually reunited with WITT. They left for Italy and the ocean voyage to Halifax, where one of WITT's six sisters lived, moving to Montreal in 1957.
They lived in a walk-up on the Main in the heart of the émigré chess-playing community.
SANKEY remembers them always sitting at her parents' kitchen table playing chess with her father, all men, all in their 20s and 30s, slapping the button on the top of the clocks.
She and her mother never did really learn to play the game, but SANKEY grasped quickly that she had to be "quiet, quiet, quiet" so her father and his Friends could play. "I would read or go and watch television in the other room. It was just a part of life, coming home to see who ever happened to be in the kitchen playing chess with daddy. It was the norm," she said.
And yet by the time the family all moved to Toronto in the late '70s, WITT had all but retreated from the chess scene. In Toronto and Montreal it was no longer dominated by the émigré master a new generation of home-grown talent had emerged under their tutelage.
Current top-rated Canadian Kevin SPRAGGETT was moving up fast. "He beat WITT in 1979 for the Montreal championship and that was the changing of the guard," said DAY.
WITT was a very private man who simply slipped out of the world of chess. Few questioned it -- chess had become an increasingly young person's game.
"When you've played the game at such a high level, climbing down is difficult," VRANESIC said. "People just quit instead. I think that's what probably happened in this case."
WITT took up painting and backgammon in the '80s and in the last few years frequently went to Casino Rama for poker games.
Before he died at 72 on December 27, his daughter found his easel and paints in the Scarborough townhouse he had shared with a young couple -- as well as the chess set from Havana.
"You know it was kind of sad," said ALLAN, the lawyer. " WITT's death was mentioned on an international chess chat room and it got no comments. I guess people just don't know him anymore."
