FORAN, George Patrick " Pat"
George Patrick (Pat) FORAN, D.C., was born in Vancouver on December 22, 1935. He passed away quietly in Vancouver on September 19, 2006 after enjoying the day with his children and grandchildren in the family home he loved so dearly throughout his industrious and illustrious life. Predeceased by his beloved wife and best friend Louise (May 28, 2005), Patrick will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by children Sydney, Donald, Michael, Lesley, Frances, Tricia, Paula, Jocelyn, and Christine, their partners, and loving grandchildren Katie, Lauren, William, Louise, Ruthie, Georgia, and Simon Patrick. Predeceased by his parents John Joseph and Kathleen, and brother Elmer, Pat is survived by brother Tom (Kay,) Frank (Patricia,) sister-in-law Terry MacDONALD, brother-in-law John MacDONALD, many nieces, nephews, cousins, Friends and colleagues. A lifelong Vancouverite, Pat faithfully attended St. Augustine's Catholic Church, vigorously engaged in social and political causes, happily pursued his love of sports and recreation, and passionately devoted himself to the well-being of his family and his patients. A proud student at Kitsilano High School and University of British Columbia, Pat attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic in 1959. In 2005, Doctor FORAN received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. Last year, he felt privileged to volunteer his chiropractic services in Ecuador and looked forward to participating in future missions abroad. Pat loved his work because he loved helping others. We believe he would have worked well into his eighties had illness not forced his abrupt retirement. Pat, our dad and grandpa, was a larger than life character whose generous heart, independent spirit, rapier wit and unconditional love for others set him apart. Pat loved life, laughter, people, wonderful music, great stories, ideas and travel. Whether on a wild road trip to Mexico with his infinitely patient wife and their nine kids or a romantic Ireland camping trip alone with Louise, the love of his life, Dad loved adventure and togetherness. Family times at the Glen were some of the most cherished of all. Dad's legacy of love and loyalty, thirst for knowledge and truth, devotion to health and personal growth, powerful work ethic and strong faith will continue to inspire and influence us. We are comforted by the thought of mom and dad traveling together again, holding hands and strolling along distant shores. Prayers at St. Augustine's Church, 2028 West 7th Avenue, on Sunday, September 24 at 7: 00 p.m. Funeral Mass at St. Augustine's Church on Monday, September 25 at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Augustine's School Fund or to a charity of your choice would be appreciated. 'Don't forget I love you.'

FORBES, Brooke -- Dispatch:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M5
Through 25 years of dynamic global change, Brooke FORBES produced Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio programming, including Variety Tonight, Sunday Morning, As It Happens and Sunday Edition, that linked millions of us as Canadians.
"An advocate, mentor and role model, she was someone people turned to in times of crisis and need -- [or] when they wanted a belly laugh," recalls Jane CHALMERS, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio vice-president.
The product of a family that was immersed in the arts, and a graduate of Harbord Collegiate Institute, Ms. FORBES began her radio career at Vancouver's CFRO, before joining the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation program Daybreak and then later moving back to Toronto.
Ms. FORBES, who was married to celebrated violist Leslie MALOWANY, lived her values. "As an activist for social justice, she sat on the boards of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations, the Open Door Society, and she was instrumental in founding and running a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio training program for minority students," says her sister, Wendy FORBES.
On April 22, at the age of 65, Ms. FORBES, who was predeceased by Mr. MALOWANY, succumbed to cancer. She left four children, a legion of saddened Friends, and a bar set higher than before.

Brooke FORBES, Radio Producer (1940-2006)
Born a 'red diaper baby,' she entered broadcasting armed with socialist sensibilities and remained true to her principles throughout a long Canadian Broadcasting Corporation career with the shows As It Happens and Sunday Morning
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Brooke FORBES believed passionately in public radio and in its responsibility to seek out and broadcast the stories of minorities and the underprivileged.
"She made sure we told stories about people on the wrong side of the power equation," says George JAMIESON, a television news assignment editor who once worked with her as a producer on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation flagship public affairs show As It Happens. "If they needed a voice, she'd make sure they got it."
During a quarter century with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio, Ms. FORBES was a producer at As It Happens, Sunday Morning and The Sunday Edition. She was also instrumental in setting up and running a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation summer camp aimed at teaching the basics of radio to students from minority groups.
Co-workers say she strove to produce radio features that would both entertain and educate listeners, and that her encyclopedic knowledge of music helped provide the perfect accompaniment for any report. They remember her as a person who stopped smiling only to laugh and who loved listening to and telling stories. She was intensely proud of her mixed ethnic heritage and often talked about how a particular issue was seen by her Jamaican, Scottish and Jewish families.
In late 2004, she was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and had to quit work to undergo painful treatments. It was a bitter blow for someone in the communications industry who also loved socialize. But she lived much longer than the doctors predicted, says close friend and fellow radio producer Karen Levine. "She was very stubborn about staying alive."
Brooke FORBES' championship of equal rights and her love of music were rooted in her Toronto childhood. Born early in the Second World War, she was a "red diaper baby" - the child of two committed and activist socialists. She also mingled at an early age with her parents' Friends in the arts and entertainment industries. Her Scottish-born father, William B. FORBES, was a union organizer and journalist. He edited The Clarion and the Canadian Tribune, both left-wing newspapers, and later became publisher of Canadian Printer and Publisher for Maclean Hunter. Her mother, Hazel FORBES (née MOYSTON,) was director of publicity at Toronto's O'Keefe Centre theatre and once took a year off to work in London and Paris for the New China News Agency.
Her maternal grandmother, Daisy MOYSTON, born in Jamaica with a Jewish father, ran a rooming house on Toronto's Bernard Ave. that was frequented by actors and writers. Visiting there as a child, Ms. FORBES sat on the knee of Paul Robeson, the black singer and actor who eventually had his U.S. passport revoked because of his left-wing activities. Years later, she produced a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio documentary on Mr. Robeson's life.
She attended Harbord Collegiate in Toronto, but took her final year of high school at Neuchatel, Switzerland. On her return to Canada she spent a year at the University of Toronto and played guitar and sang at popular Toronto folk clubs including the Purple Onion, the Bohemian Embassy and the Village Corner.
In 1962, while working in the coat check at the O'Keefe, she met violist Leslie MALOWANY, who was playing in the theatre's orchestra.
They were married in London and lived there three years, then moved to Montreal, and, in 1975, to Vancouver. While her husband played in the symphony orchestras of all three cities, she was busy looking after a family that grew to four children.
Ms. FORBES had neither experience nor training in radio when she started her career in her late 30s. "She taught herself to edit, tape, write scripts and chase stories," says her daughter Megan FORBES.
She worked first with CFRO, the volunteer station of Vancouver Co-operative Radio, where she hosted a morning show. Moving to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Vancouver, she served as associate producer of Variety Tonight, which was carried nationally, and of Daybreak, a local morning show.
Hal Wake, who worked with Ms. FORBES in co-op radio, says she made the studio her home and on one occasion, a Christmas broadcast, turned her living room into a studio, hosting her show over the background crackle of a roaring fireplace.
"Brooke was the proverbial 'breath of fresh air' in current affairs, because she didn't fit the earnest journalist profile, at all," says Linda Negrave, a co-worker at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Vancouver. "She was much too colourful [in both her dress -- she loved bright purples and pinks -- and her take on the world], well-rounded and well-read, with an extensive knowledge of the arts, and just a hoot, who loved to laugh and refused to take anything too seriously."
In the mid-1980s, after going through a divorce, Ms. FORBES moved to Toronto where she held key public affairs positions with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. While there, she lobbied for increased diversity and convinced the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1990 to start a one-week summer radio camp for high-school students from four designated groups: women, aboriginals, people of colour and the disabled. She organized and taught at it for six years until the network pulled the funding.
Aisha WICKHAM, who attended one of the camps, is now Canadian talent development manager with FLOW 93.5 radio in Toronto. "It had a strong impact on my decision to pursue a career in radio," she says. More recently Ms. FORBES taught radio skills to a group of First Nations teenagers as part of a Vancouver program called Rookie Radio.
On the job, Ms. FORBES was both professional and popular. "She was the kind of person you wanted to tell things to, knowing she could share a tear or a laugh without embarrassment or judgment," says Michael Enright, host of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Sunday Edition.
One of her particular interests was black history in the United States and Canada, says Mary Lou Finlay, former host of As It Happens. "She wanted the rest of us to know a lot of stories about African-Canadians we didn't know, and some she didn't know until she'd discover them."
She served as a volunteer director of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations in the 1980s, helping organize a media-monitoring program. "We were doing very serious work," says Carol Tator, who worked with her on the project. "But she made it fun."
After and between her cancer treatments, Ms. FORBES lived at home seeing only family members and close Friends. But she kept in touch with a wide network of admirers through The Brooke Blog, a website created by her son Matthew Malowany. And she made it clear she wanted more than good wishes from those who kept in touch.
"I ask for gossip and you rush out and look under every rock you can find," she wrote on her son's website last December. "Matthew says on the blog, I prefer mail, suddenly the mailman is loaded down. When I say, no e-mail is fine, the box is almost full every day."
Brooke FORBES was born in Toronto on September 29, 1940. She died at her Toronto home on April 22, 2006, 16 months after being diagnosed with esophageal cancer. She was 65. She is survived by a daughter, Megan; three sons. Caedmon, Matthew and Paul and a sister Wendy FORBES. Friends in Vancouver have set up the Brooke Forbes Legacy Fund (604-877-7241) to carry on her work teaching radio skills to minority youth.

FORBES, Rosemary
Died Saturday, October 7th while tending her magnificent garden on a beautiful, sunny day. Rosemary was Friends to thousands of persons. Everyone in the figure skating community knew her as a loving, tireless, and truly dedicated coach. She first started teaching children at the Lakeshore Skating Club in the 1950's. For close to 30 years she has been an honoured coach at the Port Credit Figure Skating Club. "She taught me all the dance tests" is a touching phrase spoken by so many. Rosemary was avid about all her activities. She played bridge every week. Lawn bowling was her fun summer activity. Swimming, walking, and bicycling for miles every day kept her fit. She participated in so many activities at the Boulevard Club where she was an honourary member. All of this was in addition to her daily joy of teaching skating. Traveling was a passion for Rosemary, and she journeyed the world, making Friends easily wherever she visited with Fred, her husband. He was the love of her life. They were married in 1959 in New Toronto where Fred had his drug store. Fred passed away in 1991. Rosemary did not want a Church service, or a Memorial service because that would make people sad. Rosemary's remains are to be cremated with her ashes interred at Fred's family plot. Rosemary wants us to have a party where her Friends can eat, drink, and laugh, telling stories about her and sharing memories. This will happen later in November. Please send a note to Taylor ECHLIN, 2338 Hurontario Street, Suite 301, Mississauga, Ontario, L5B 1N1 to receive details, and an R.R.S.P. invitation. Any donations should be made to your favourite charity for children.

Star on ice, champ, adored coach
Generous spirit fed homeless man
Party, not memorial, to mark her life
By Debra BLACK, Staff Reporter
Rosemary FORBES died doing something she loved, tending her garden. It was a fitting end for a woman who was passionate about everything from gardening to ice skating.
The one-time Ice Follies dancer and Canadian Ladies Junior champion parlayed a love of skating into a career as a figure skating coach, first at the Lakeshore Skating Club and then the Port Credit Figure Skating Club. During 50-odd years of coaching, she taught thousands of youngsters how to skate.
"She treated every skater in the club equally -- it didn't matter if you had talent or not," says Siobhan CRAWLEY, a former student.
"She was very caring. She had a real sense of humour in the way she taught. She had a way of making you feel important even if you felt unsure." FORBES was teaching until the day she died. Many of her students are beside themselves, said CRAWLEY, who sits on the board of the Port Credit Figure Skating Club. She has arranged for a grief counsellor to talk to the children.
"They loved her," said CRAWLEY. " She was so pivotal to our club. We won't be the same club without her. That was her legacy -- she has taken so many little ones and started them on their way."
Born in Toronto, FORBES, in her 70s, died earlier this month from heart problems.
A passionate gardener and traveller, FORBES married Freddie, who had a drugstore in New Toronto, in 1959. He died in 1991. They never had children.
She also ran a skating group, called Morning Glories, for women aged 40 to 80.
She was generous to Friends, but also strangers. FORBES had lived near a grocery store and put her garbage in the nearby dumpster. "One day a homeless person climbed out of the dumpster and growled at her: 'Stay away, this is my territory,'" recalled Taylor ECHLIN, a friend and executor of her estate. "Rosemary pointed her finger at him and said: 'No one in Canada should eat food out of a garbage bin. You come home now and I'll fix you a sandwich and anytime you're hungry I want you to knock on my door.'"
No funeral or memorial service is being held. FORBES "didn't want people to be sad," ECHLIN said. "She wanted me to hold a big party for all her Friends so we can laugh and giggle and share memories." The party will be in late November, he said.
