MUDRY, Andrea Patricia Fawcett (May 7, 1941-July 5, 2006)
Andrea succumbed to cancer after a brave brief fight. A born Torontonian, graduate of Saint Michael's College, University of Toronto, she completed her education with an M.

She had careers in university public relations (where she won numerous writing awards), real estate, as special assistant to the President of the Ontario College of Art and Design, and as a writer (and member of the Writers' Union of Canada). She read and travelled widely and said herself, in her last days, that with her children and grandchildren and her second husband, Peter BRIGG, she had lived a full and varied life, although all of the many whom she touched feel it has been cut off far too short. Andrea is survived by her mother, Mary KEEFE, her brother Russell Stephen MUDRY of St. Catherines, her daughter Natalie Andrea FAWCETT (wife of John LEE) of Toronto, her daughter Tatian a (Tanya) FAWCETT (wife of Pierre Pascal GENDRON) of Toronto, and her husband, Peter Alexander BRIGG.

20-year-old dies on snowmobile trail
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Page 12
A snowmobiler from Barrie was found dead by Friends on a trail near New Lowell Sunday afternoon.
Travis PELLETIER, 22, of 121 Grove Street, was found on the trail, near Sunnidale Sideroad 6/7, around 2 p.m.
The man's family said he had been missing since around 2 a.m. Saturday morning when he left to test his snowmobile after making some adjustments.
Police said PELLETIER missed a turn while going along the trail and struck a tree. The location was just 10 minutes from his parents' home, according to family members.
Mark KINNEY, a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police said alcohol, excess speed and not wearing a helmet are "a" considered to be factors" in the fatal crash.
Police were on the scene Sunday for almost four hours, trying to piece together what transpired.
"Travis lived on the edge a bit," said Bruce COOK, PELLETIER's stepfather. "But deep down he was a good-hearted person who loved his mom."
"Right now we are trying to celebrate his life."
PELLETIER belonged to the Serpent River First Nation in Cutler, Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
COOK said his stepson grew up in Orangeville and later New Lowell. He attended one year at Stayner Collegiate Institute.

Passionate about future of Creemore, businessman and publisher dies
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Fri., May 5th, 2006
Gordon BADGER, a charismatic character known for his business skills and community involvement in the Creemore area, has died.
He was 69.
BADGER died Sunday in Ireland, while on honeymoon with his wife, Marilyn. No details regarding funeral or memorial arrangements were available at press time.
Jeff SHEARER, publisher of On The Bay Magazine, based in Collingwood, was a friend of BADGER's. He said that BADGER died in his sleep.
He noted that BADGER and his new wife had just married about a month ago in Florida. The visit to Ireland followed a stop in Venice, Italy where the couple renewed their vows, he said.
SHEARER spoke highly of BADGER in an interview with The Connection.
"He was a smart, big thinker and passionate about the community," SHEARER recalled.
The son of a grocery store owner turned United Church Minister, BADGER was an accountant who for many years worked on the business side of the publishing industry.
Among his ventures was a partnership in Comac Communications, which published for a time Homemaker's Magazine.
BADGER also published the now defunct Creemore Star and a number of other titles, including the Elmvale Lance, Stayner Star and Wasaga Star. The newspapers ceased publishing in the 1990s.
His other business pursuits included real estate projects in Canada and abroad. One of his Canadian partnerships was the Woodland Heights residential development adjacent to Deerhurst Resort near Huntsville.
Clearview Township mayor Fran SAINSBURY said yesterday she was saddened to learn of BADGER's death.
"I liked Gordon -- he was feisty but he also had a good sense of humour. When Gordon got involved in something he saw it through to the end."
SAINSBURY said that she and BADGER met in about 1998 when the two -- the mayor was not in office -- were fighting to stop the Creemore sewer project.
"He had some concerns, as everyone else did, about the sewer project here. He had the same concerns I did, build it and they will come."
BADGER also successfully lobbied the township in 2000 to make improvements to the then proposed official plan.
Last year, he appeared at public meetings to raise concerns about the scope of the Alliance Homes project proposed for Creemore.
SAINSBURY pointed out that before getting involved in something BADGER was careful to research both sides of the issue, a quality the mayor said she admired.
SAINSBURY noted that BADGER was instrumental in helping raise funds for the library and arena in the village. She added he touched the community in a number of other ways.
"He was very deeply connected to the Creemore area," she said.
One of the things BADGER enjoyed doing when in the area on Friday was gathering for lunch with Friends and acquaintances interested in the local political scene, SHEARER said.
"You could best describe Gordon as charming, with a bigger than life presence, passionate and he could be gregarious in an eloquent way. He was well-connected and an aggressive, aggressive businessman," he added.
Among the high profile people BADGER knew was former Ontario Liberal premier David Peterson.
When not in the Creemore area, BADGER enjoyed staying at his home in the Dominican Republic or at the cottage on Lake Joseph.
"I think this is a great loss to our community," said Creemore area resident Noël BATES.
BATES and BADGER knew each other for a number of years and a dined together during the Friday lunch/political discussion meetings.
"He was quite an interesting character and one of those that make Creemore an interesting place to live. We're saddened by his death."
BADGER, who lost his last wife, Vicky, to emphysema in June of 2002 and his daughter Martha at 36 in 2000 due to a heart seizure, is survived by his sons Gregg, Matthew, Storey and daughter Lawrie.

Sledder dies, alcohol a factor
Family mourns the loss of son who died while taking his snowmobile for an early Saturday morning ride. Searchers found the young man's body on Sunday afternoon.
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A 22-Year-Old snowmobiler from Barrie was found dead by Friends on a trail near New Lowell Sunday afternoon.
Travis PELLETIER of 121 Grave Street, was found dead on the trail, near Sunnidale Sideroad 6/7, around 2 p.m.
The man's family said he had been missing since around 2 a.m. Saturday morning when he left to test his snow machine after making some adjustments.
Law enforcement officials said that the deceased missed a turn while going along the trail and struck a tree. The location was just 10 minutes from his parents' home, according to family members.
Mark KINNEY, a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police, said that alcohol, excess speed and not wearing a helmet are "all considered to be factors" in the fatal crash.
KINNEY said that police were on the scene Sunday for almost four hours, trying to piece together what transpired. The Clearview Fire Department was also on hand for about the first 45 minutes, but other than that Chief Dave CARRUTHERS wasn't able to say what role his people played because he hadn't received a full report.
Bruce COOK, PELLETIER's step-father, talked by telephone with The Stayner Sun on Monday afternoon.
"Travis lived on the edge a bit," he said. "But deep down he was a goodhearted person who loved his mom."
PELLETIER had been arrested and convicted in the past for mischief under $5,000. He also was convicted for drug offences. On both occasions he was sentenced to jail time.
"He had some issues but he was trying to find his niche in life again," COOK said, adding he didn't want to discuss PELLETIER's troubled past. "Right now we are trying to celebrate his life."
PELLETIER was an aboriginal who belonged to the Serpent River First Nation in Cutler, Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
COOK said his stepson grew up in Orangeville and later New Lowell. He attended one year at Stayner Collegiate Institute but dropped out.
He said that PELLETIER, who he described as a handsome and slightly athletic man, enjoyed hockey as a youngster but that he abandoned the game in his early teens. Growing up he also liked to skateboard, COOK said.
He did not know if his stepson was working but he did note that PELLETIER was close with his girlfriend of seven years, Tamra LORBETSKIE.
He explained that PELLETIER came to visit his two siblings, Justin, 17, and Amanda, 15, on Friday night in New Lowell. He added that his stepson was drinking before venturing out on the three- or four-year-old snowmobile that he'd owned for only a few months. COOK said he wasn't sure if PELLETIER had much experience on snow machines.
COOK said that Justin and Amanda became alarmed around 10 a.m. Saturday morning when they realized that PELLETIER had not come back from the ride. Friends helped them search but it was not until Sunday that they discovered the man's body, approximately 10 feet off the trail, COOK said.
At one point during the search on Sunday morning COOK said his son Justin walked by the scene but did not see anything.
At the time PELLETIER went missing his stepfather and mother, Michelle, were visiting family on the reserve. COOK said they did not learn that PELLETIER was missing until getting home around noon on Sunday.
COOK said he learned the worst when two family Friends, Ryan McSWEEN and Paul FLANNERY, came up the driveway of their 21 Fawn Cres., home to say they found PELLETIER's body.
Throughout the ordeal COOK said his wife and children have been surrounded by family and Friends, something that has helped a great deal.
PELLETIER's body was taken to Barrie's Royal Victoria Hospital on Sunday for a post-mortem, scheduled to take place Monday afternoon, police said. Details of the autopsy were not available.
The Serpent River Band is handling the funeral arrangements, COOK noted, adding that PELLETIER will be buried on the reserve. He said the man's body was to be picked up yesterday. There will be no public service.
Still, COOK said that in memory of his stepson donations can be made to Stayner Collegiate Institute, where Amanda and Justin attend school or the Barrie Native Friendship Centre.
PELLETIER leaves behind his mother, siblings Justin, 17, Amanda Tammy, 34 and Dean 32.

Port Credit woman dies in Cty. Rd. 124 crash
Three sent to General and Marine with injuries
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A 69-year-old Port Credit woman is dead following an automobile crash on Cty. Rd. 124 around noon Sunday.
Isabel KAY was killed when the green 2004 Jaguar CX3 she was a passenger in collided with a blue 2000 Chevrolet Silverado, near Nottawasaga Sideroad 12/13.
KAY was pronounced dead at the scene.
The woman's husband, Archibald KAY, 73, was driving the Jaguar and injured in the crash. He was transported by ambulance to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital with what police call serious injuries.
Also sent to hospital with minor injuries was Stacey CUMMING, 34, and Daniel CUMMING, 13, both of Badjeros. The two were riding in the Silverado.
Emergency workers said they learned of the mishap when a police officer stumbled upon it while responding to another call. Along with police and paramedics, members of the Clearview Fire Department were on scene as well.
Mark KINNEY a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police, could not say if weather conditions played a role in causing the crash.
However, a motorist who happened upon the scene moments after the collision told The Stayner Sun there was snow falling and slush on the road.
Police had County Rd. 124 closed for about three hours while they conducted an investigation. While officers are still looking into the matter, they do have a general sense of what happened, Kinney said.
He explained that the southbound Jaguar passed a transport truck. Pulling back into its lane, the car hit the west shoulder and then veered back into the northbound lane, at which time the Jaguar and Silverado made contact.
Mariane McLEOD, a spokesperson for General and Marine Hospital, said Monday afternoon that KAY is listed in stable condition. There was no information available regarding Stacey and Daniel CUMMING.

Thomas Stayner recipient loses battle with cancer
Grace FORD remembered by family, Friends at funeral Tuesday
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
Grace FORD, the winner of last year's Thomas Stayner Award, died on Saturday.
She was 87.
Daughter-in-law Tish FORD told The Sun on Monday that FORD died of liver, lung and bone cancer. She was diagnosed in early December and subsequently moved to Stayner Nursing Home, where she passed away on the weekend.
The award she received at last year's Stayner Chamber of Commerce Business Awards ceremony was special to her, her daughter-in-law said.
"She had that on her television in the nursing home so she could see it. She was so incredibly honoured by it," Tish FORD said.
The Thomas Stayner Award is a citizen of the year-type award created by the Chamber four years ago.
FORD told people at the ceremony it was nice to receive the award, but quickly added there were a number of others just as deserving.
Judges selected FORD based on a 14-year commitment to the Stayner Public Library Board.
Many other things she was involved with helped her win as well. FORD was a volunteer driver for the Children's Aid Society, ferrying wards to appointments and did work through United Church Women.
"Her enthusiasm toward her town and its heritage is unending, and she is an individual who possesses a very strong community spirit and has definitely made a difference to Stayner and the lives of its citizens," FORD's daughter-in-law wrote when nominating her last year.
She recounted Monday that her mother-in-law was "a very caring and outspoken person. No one pulled the wool over Grace's eyes. If she had something to say she said it. You always knew where you stood."
Grace FORD was born and raised in Stayner. She attended Byng Public School and subsequently Stayner Continuation School.
Her parents were Vern and Eva JOHNSON. FORD's dad was a tailor, who had a business where R.C. Robinson Mens Wear is now located on Main Street.
Growing up and as a young woman FORD loved to play sports.
"She played hockey, baseball, whatever was going back then she enjoyed it," Tish FORD said.
Helen HANNA, 87, FORD's best friend, recalled the first time they met.
"We've been Friends for over 75 years. They'd moved to a new house on John Street and I'd heard there were two little kids there. So I lived on John Street too and I went up the walk and there she was standing out front," HANNA said.
Growing up the two played sports together and as adults were often in each others company, HANNA said, adding she was a bridesmaid in FORD's wedding.
FORD lived most of her life in Clearview Township, except for a few brief stints, including one when she worked building airplanes for the deHavilland Aircraft Company in Toronto during the Second World War.
"She was always very good with her hands. It was not uncommon for her to fix things at my place," her friend said.
She married her husband Fred shortly after the war ended and the couple lived on a farm at Sunnidale Corners for 20-plus years, until moving back to town. The Stayner home was the one FORD grew up in as a little girl, HANNA said.
"She loved Stayner too -- it was her favourite place. She was a big believer in buying locally, which I guess stems from when her dad was in business."
HANNA noted her friend was also a good mother. She raised two boys, Tom and John.
"She also cherished every moment with her great-grandchildren and grandchildren," Tish FORD said.
In terms of entertainment she loved to play cards, although HANNA said she thinks FORD enjoyed the social aspect more than the game itself.
Reading was another favourite thing, her daughter-in-law said. FORD was a big diary writer as well and kept one since she was a youngster.
HANNA said she will miss her friend dearly.
Yesterday afternoon, a funeral service for FORD was held at the Carruthers and Davidson Funeral Home on Main Street. FORD was buried at Stayner Union Cemetery.
The family said that donations in memory of FORD can be made to the Centennial United Church Building Repair Fund, Box 385, Stayner, L0M 1S0.

Search is on to replace much loved local doctor
By Michael GENNINGS, Wed., Mar 8th, 2006, Page 3
The family of Nottawa doctor Sandy MacDOUGALL says they are in the process of trying to find a replacement for his patients.
Dr. MacDOUGALL died of a heart attack suddenly at his home in Duntroon while cross-country skiing on February 22.
He was 52.
Dr. Lorna MacDOUGALL, who practices in Creemore, spoke about her brother during an interview with The Sun last week.
She said the family, through advertising and personal contacts in the medical community, is searching for a physician who can take over her brother's practice.
She added that arrangements have been made for patients requiring immediate care.
Dr. MacDOUGALL said her brother was a wonderful person who had a great sense of humour.
He was the fourth of six children, born in Guelph, Ontario
At the age of two, the family moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and within a year was calling Kansas City, Kansas, home.
After high school Dr. MacDOUGALL and his family moved to Michigan, where he graduated in 1975 from the University of Michigan with a degree in chemical engineering.
After he attended the University of Waterloo and worked on his masters degree for a year. He also met his wife Marni while at the Southwestern Ontario school.
Dr. MacDOUGALL subsequently attended medical school at McGill University in Montreal and graduated in 1980.
His sister said that her brother wanted to become a doctor "out of a desire to help others ease their sickness and pain."
The same year he finished medical school Dr. MacDOUGALL and his wife wed.
Dr. MacDOUGALL did his family medicine residency at Dalhousie University in Halifax between 1980 and 1982. Given the broad region that the university served, Dr. MacDOUGALL lived in Summerside, Prince Edward Island; Saint John, New Brunswick and Woodstock, New Brunswick.
After his residency was complete Dr. MacDOUGALL, Marni and their eldest daughter Beth moved to Collingwood. Dr. MacDOUGALL joined the Stayner Medical Centre, where he practiced with a number of other local doctors.
The move to the Georgian Triangle was so both Dr. MacDOUGALL and his wife could be closer to their respective families in Toronto, his sister said.
They also loved the idea of rural family practice, caring for a whole family from birth to grave, she added.
Dr. MacDOUGALL left Stayner in 1991 and moved to nearby Nottawa so he could establish a solo practice.
Outside of the medical community, Dr. MacDOUGALL was "passionate" about his faith. He was actively involved in the Cornerstone Pentecostal Church.
An accomplished musician, Dr. MacDOUGALL played piano, guitar and clarinet. He participated in the musical group Shepherd's Staff.
As well, Dr. MacDOUGALL enjoyed building and as such was not afraid to take on any home project, his sister said.
She added that her brother was a big believer of integrity -- both professionally and personally.
As reported in last week's edition of The Sun, funeral services for Dr. MacDOUGALL were held February 25 at New Life Brethren in Christ Church in Collingwood.
Dr. MacDOUGALL is survived by his wife Marni and children Beth, Katie, Sandy Jr., Margaret Grace, Rebecca and T.J.

Lexie was like a warm ray of sunshine, partner says
Founded Abernant Veterinary Services in the late 1980s
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
Local Veterinarian Lexie CAMERON will be remembered by family and Friends at a memorial on May 5.
Huw LLEWELLYN, Lexie's partner, said the memorial is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Abernant Veterinary Services, 6725 Hwy. 26 East.
Lexie, 49, died April 13 at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre in Toronto, after sustaining head injuries at home.
In a telephone interview Thursday, LLEWELLYN said his partner fell around 11 p.m. on April 11.
He said the fall happened just as they were going to bed, after watching television, at their home in Wasaga Beach.
LLEWELLYN explained that Lexie was likely attempting to use a bathroom in the dark, misjudged the doorway and fell down the stairs.
He said the tumble caused a skull fracture and brain injuries.
"I was just going to bed, I heard a thump, put the lights on and she was at the bottom of the stairs," LLEWELLYN said. "It's an image I'll live with for the rest of my life."
He noted their 15-year-old son, named Cameron after his mother's family, was asleep in the house at the time of the accident.
Paramedics were called and Lexie was raced to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital. She was then airlifted to Sunnybrook, where LLEWELLYN said a computed axial tomography scan was done. The procedure, he added, determined there was no hope for her.
He said that Lexie's heart, lungs, liver, pancreas and kidneys were donated to people in need of organs.
Because of how Lexie died, LLEWELLYN said that the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police investigated. The process involved talking to family and neighbours, something LLEWELLYN said he found understandable but also very hurtful. Police subsequently ruled out foul play.
In talking about his partner of 20 years, LLEWELLYN said she was like a ray of warm sunshine.
"Lexie always put everyone before herself," he explained. "She was an incredibly compassionate person."
He added that Lexie was honest also and had the highest standards as a vet and a human being.
"Everyone who knew her liked her. She was a strikingly beautiful woman as well, yet clothes and material things were of no significance."
LLEWELLYN said that Lexie was the type of person who did most of her clothes shopping at second hand stores, often buying items that contained purple, her favourite colour.
Born and raised in Barrie, Lexie was the daughter of Donald and Berhta CAMERON. For a number of years her father was the administrator at Royal Victoria Hospital.
As a child Lexie developed a passion for riding horses, LLEWELLYN said, and subsequently decided to become a veterinarian.
She attended two years of pre-vet schooling at the University of Guelph and then in 1980, after four years of study, graduated with her degree.
LLEWELLYN said he was Lexie's professor at Guelph, although the two did not date until about four or five years after she graduated. He spoke of how Lexie caught his attention.
"I was her professor and I noticed that she was so well read. She knew a lot about different things. She had a tremendous vocabulary. I could talk with her and we got along very well."
Together the couple started Abernant Veterinary Service, on a farm just east of Stayner, in 1988.
Because of a stream on the property, they chose the name Abernant, a Welsh word meaning entry of the stream.
"She did the small animals and I helped with surgery," LLEWELLYN recalled.
They built the business into a three-person practice that grew by mainly word-of-mouth, he said.
LLEWELLYN, who primarily treats horses, noted he plans to keep the vet operation open -- at some point finding a person to take on Lexie's duties.
He said that Lexie was the type of person who loved animals and people so much that if an owner couldn't pay for their pet's operation it wasn't an issue.
Lexie herself had 12 horses, thoroughbred crosses, and LLEWELLYN said he plans to keep her two favourite.
A competitor with her animals, LLEWELLYN said that in 2004 Lexie flew to Scotland and northern England to compete in jumping events over three days.
When not working she enjoyed the role of mother, was also an accomplished pianist and big reader.
"Lexie read everything, including the Bible and she wasn't a religious person -- she just read it as a book. Her favourite though was true crime stories."
Travel played a big role in their lives too, LLEWELLYN said. The couple visited Europe extensively, Mexico, Costa Rica and Florida.
Recently the couple purchased a farm, near Owen Sound, as a get-away and eventually a place to live when they retired.
"Our lives perhaps appeared glamorous, but we didn't put a lot into material things," LLEWELLYN said. "What we did was live each day as if it was our last."
He encourages everyone who knew CAMERON to attend her memorial.
He said they picked Abernant for the location because CAMERON was happiest there.
Donations in memory of CAMERON can be made to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.

Gordon BADGER dies in Ireland
Friend says big thinker was passionate about Creemore and area
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
Gordon BADGER, a charasmatic character well-known for his business skills and community involvement in the Creemore area, has died.
He was 69.
BADGER died Sunday in Ireland, while on honeymoon with his wife, Marilyn.
Jeff SHEARER, publisher of On The Bay Magazine, based in Collingwood, was a friend of BADGER's. He said that BADGER died in his sleep.
He noted that BADGER and his new wife had just married about a month ago in Florida. The visit to Ireland followed a stop in Venice, Italy where the couple renewed their vows, he said.
Shearer spoke highly of BADGER in an interview with The Sun yesterday.
"He was a smart, big thinker and passionate about the community," SHEARER recalled.
For many years BADGER, an accountant, worked on the business side of the publishing industry.
Among his ventures was a partnership in Comac Communications, which published for a time Homemaker's Magazine.
BADGER also published the now defunct Creemore Star and a number of other titles, including the Elmvale Lance, Stayner Star and Wasaga Star. The newspapers ceased publishing in the 1990s.
His other business pursuits included real estate projects in Canada and abroad. One of his Canadian partnerships was the Woodland Heights residential development adjacent to Deerhurst Resort near Huntsville.

SAINSBURY pointed out that before getting involved in something BADGER was careful to research both sides of the issue, a quality the mayor said she admired.
SAINSBURY noted that BADGER, who for a number of years owned an estate on Nottawasaga Concession 3 south of the village, supported her mayoral bid in 2003.
"We didn't have a personal Friendship per se, but we know each other and we both had a keen interest in Creemore. I really respected him."
SAINSBURY noted that BADGER was instrumental in helping raise funds for the library and arena in the village. She added he touched the community in a number of other ways.
"He was very deeply connected to the Creemore area," she said.
One of the things BADGER enjoyed doing when in the area on Friday was gathering for lunch with Friends and acquaintences interested in the local political scene, SHEARER said.
