HAMILTON, Billie (December 21st, 1968-February 3rd, 1999)
Seven years ago our family was changed forever.
As time continues our family also changes, since you left us
Things happened where the sun seems to shine and we are
Happy and then the rain starts and the tears fall.
God would probably tell us,
I never promised you a rose garden,
Along with the sunshine, there has to be a little rain sometimes.
So until we meet again where the sun always shines,
We will think of you often and know we are blessed to have had you for a brother.
Love always, Wilma and Jim

Forgetting you never.

Dear Billie
We loved you as a baby,
We treasured you as a child
We watched you grow through teenage years
We were proud of you as a grown man.
As time goes on things here on earth do change
The little ones are growing up.
And we have moved across the lane.
We feel your closeness still in our hearts
And often wonder what are you doing today.
We're sure in God's Heavenly Home
There is lots of work yet to be done
We know that you're not lonely there
In Heaven with your grandparents, relatives and Friends.
It's seven years since you've been with us
And we are assured each day is one day closer to you.
May the Good Lord Bless and Keep you,
Our dearest Billie Boy.
Till we meet again.
Love, Mom and Dad - Edna and Bill HAMILTON

ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, The Reverend Dr. Clifford A.S. (1919-2006)
Peacefully at home, surrounded by love on February 27, 2006 in his 87th year after a lengthy illness. He is survived by his wife, Mary SANDERSON, his children: Cherry (Bill WEBSTER) of Newmarket; Kirk (Donna GRIFFITH) and Stuart (Monica HAMILTON), both of Toronto, his brother-in-law, Robert MITCHELL of White Rock, British Columbia and grandchildren: Daryll, Kimberley, Meredith, Gillian and Gwendolyn. Predeceased by his parents, Annie JENNINGS and George ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, his first wife Patricia KIRKPATRICK (1977,) his daughter, Gracie (1981;) his sisters, Grace MITCHELL of Montreal and White Rock (2003) and Doris GROSE of Swift Current (1999) and his brothers, Walter of Langley, British Columbia (2005) and Lloyd of Montreal (1986). Cliff was born in Langham, Saskatchewan and was always fiercely proud of his Saskatchewan roots. He studied theology at St. Andrew's College in Saskatoon and at Union Theological College, Columbia University in New York where he obtained his doctorate with great distinction. Ordained by The United Church of Canada in 1942 at the age of 23, he served pastorates in Dundurn, Sask (1942-44), Third Ave, North Battleford, Saskatchewan. (1947-52), St. Giles, Hamilton (1952-59), Robertson (now Robertson-Wesley), Edmonton (1959-66), Metropolitan, Toronto (1966-75 and Bloor Street, Toronto (1975-86). Cliff's great gift and passion was in conveying the message of the Gospel. This was manifested in radio programmes (Sunday School of the Air in North Battleford and The Good Ship Crusader in Hamilton) as well as two minute weekly spots on Station CFRB (1970-86) in Toronto; a festival of the arts, dayspring at Metropolitan United Church; a controversial sculpture of The Crucified Woman at Bloor Street Church (1979); articles in The United Church Observer (1960's 1990's) and monthly columns in The Toronto Star. Following his retirement in 1986, Cliff was a popular anniversary preacher and retreat leader across the country and a volunteer chaplain at Casey House Hospice for people with A.I.D.S. and Wellesley Hospital's H.I.V./A.I.D.S. wing. He taught at many of the United Church's theological colleges during his ministry and was the author of several books. Cliff travelled extensively in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America; in China, East Germany and Russia and gained on-the-spot understanding of current social and political conditions which informed his preaching. Throughout Cliff's life, singing was an important expression of his faith and love of life and even in his last years when his memory failed him he continued to sing. For over forty years he cottaged on Little Boshkung Lake at Carnarvon in Haliburton, Ontario. For ten and a half years, following a stroke during surgery, Cliff was cared for in his own home. The family is grateful to the many, many Friends, Community Care East York, Bayview Community Hospice and Dr. Ian FERGUSON and Dr. Robert McKELLAR who supported them during this time and made it possible for Cliff to remain at home. A celebration of Cliff's life will be held at Bloor Street United Church, 300 Bloor St. W. (corner of Bloor and Huron) on Saturday, March 4 at 11: 00 a.m. Visiting will be on Friday, March 3 at Bloor Street United Church from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Donations in Cliff's memory may be made to The Clifford Elliott Spirit of Saskatchewan Ministry Trust Fund, c/o The United Church of Canada, 3250 Bloor Street West, Suite 300, Toronto, Ontario M8X 2Y4.

Jack MATHER, Actor (1915-2006)
Veteran player of bit parts gave up mining coal in Alberta to become 'just about the best voice man' in movies and television
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Many know his face but few his name. A mainstay character actor, Jack MATHER appeared as the station master in Anne of Green Gables, the drunk in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television series King of Kensington, and the minister in Middle Age Crazy.
And while he spent a great deal of his career portraying characters on-screen, he began it by acting voices off-screen, on radio and television. As part of that, he brought puppets Dilly Dally and Flub-a-dub to life on the Canadian Howdy Doody Show.
"Jack was not only a member of the cast, he was a paramount member of the cast," said Alfie SCOPP, who played Clarabell the Clown on the show. "He was really a star in what he did. He was just about the best voice man I ever met."
The popular children's program ran for five years during the 1950s and followed the escapades of the puppet citizens of Doodyville, including its mayor, Phineas T. Bluster, and siblings Heidi and Howdy Doody. A studio audience of kids made up the Peanut Gallery, and each show began with: "Say kids, what time is it?" To which the gallery replied: "It's Howdy Doody time."
In addition to Mr. MATHER, James DOOHAN (later of Star Trek fame,) Larry MANN and Barbara HAMILTON all played key roles.
Not only did Mr. MATHER supply voices for the puppets, but he co-wrote some of the shows with Mr. SCOPP.
It was part of a career that spanned 60 years, during which Mr. MATHER made a solid living. "He was always there," Mr. MANN said. "You could depend on Jack and the Maple Leafs to entertain."
Mr. MATHER's resumé cites more than 2,000 television appearances during 13 years. He last performed, at 88, as Grandpa Max in the 2003 television movie Hunger Point. Often playing the nice guy, or the nice guy who goes mad, Mr. MATHER was particularly proud of his work in a death scene in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation series The Campbells.
So well-known did he become that, in later years, he rarely needed to look for work. Instead, the work came to him.
His late success came from early persistence. Born in an Alberta coal-mining town east of Jasper National Park, Mr. MATHER grew up the second of four children in a family that owned a coal mine. As a child, he embraced his natural surroundings and attended local schools. As a young teen, he performed as a dancer at provincial exhibitions and appeared in amateur theatre whenever he could.
With few prospects during the Depression, Mr. MATHER became a coal miner. Following his shifts, he often drove to Edmonton to perform in theatre. In the early 1940s, he received a telegram from Esse Ljungh, a radio producer and director for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio in Winnipeg (and later the national supervisor of radio drama,) asking Mr. MATHER to work for him. With a wife and two young children at home, he accepted the offer.
"He said if he'd stayed in the mines, he would have died," said Janine MATHER, Mr. MATHER's daughter.
Regular radio and television work followed, and he moved to Toronto. Another move came in 1965 when he joined the exodus of Canadian actors who left for Hollywood because they were frustrated by the favouritism shown to British and American actors. On leaving Canada, Mr. MATHER left voice acting behind.
During his eight-year stay in Tinseltown, jobs sometimes came Mr. MATHER's way because he could ride a horse. He appeared in such shows as Daniel Boone, Bonanza and Gunsmoke. As well, Mr. MATHER, a lifelong teetotaller, often portrayed a drunkard or, benefiting from his ability with accents, a Norwegian cook.
A supportive Canadian expatriot community also saw him with work in Norman Jewison films. Agents helped, too; Mr. MATHER learned of work through rushed phone calls from telephone booths.
He returned to Canada just as the film scene was beginning to pick up, and he became part of it. Along the way, he wrote a series of short stories, never published, drawn from his Hollywood experiences.
Jack MATHER was born on December 8, 1915, in Mountain Park, Alberta., now a ghost town. He died on January 25, 2006, in Toronto. He leaves his wife, Kathleen, his son Grant, daughter Janine, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. A son, Lorne, and daughter, Karen, predeceased him.

MacFEETERS, Diana Louise (née HAMILTON)
(January 5, 1925-December 7, 2006)
Her determination to live life to the fullest after a paralyzing stroke in 1998 was inspirational for all who knew her - but eventually she succumbed to additional strokes. Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her husband for over 55 years Ronald, daughters Laura (Duncan SINCLAIR) of Whitehorse, and Sheila (Michael WILLIAMS) of Toronto, and sister Elizabeth HAMILTON. Pre-deceased by her brother David. Joyous and adventurous times with Grannie will always be remembered by Lindsay, Caitlin and Brooke SINCLAIR, and Rob and Andrew WILLIAMS. Diana graduated from Bishop Strachan School and initially studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Toronto, but after service in the Red Cross Transport during World War 2 she switched to Commerce and Finance (class of '49) and started a lifelong involvement with Kappa Kappa Gamma. Before marrying Ronald in 1951 she worked at Hamilton Gear and Machine Co., but from her early days with the Toronto Junior League Diana made volunteerism her career of choice. Over 40 years she developed great Friendships on the Travel Committee and in the Reproduction Shop of the Members' Volunteer Committee at the Royal Ontario Museum. She was was also a member of The Current Events Club and The Ladies Club. Since 1998 Diana lived at Central Park Lodge Thorncliffe where she was an active participant on various committees. She was able to spend many weekends with Ronald and caregiver Sandra RHODES at Timbertop in the hills of Mono, and she enjoyed every possible opportunity for summer trips to her 'spiritual home' at Go Home Bay. In recent years Diana worked diligently towards her goal of walking again, and got great encouragement and much pleasure from the calls and visits of Friends. Those wishing to make a fitting memorial to her could call or visit someone they know who is not well or is feeling sad. Cremation has taken place. Friends are invited to share memories at the York Club (northeast corner St. George and Bloor) on Tuesday December 12 from 3-5 p.m.

CARMICHAEL, John Alexander, M.D., C.M., (F.R.C.S.C) (1928-2006)
With great sorrow, John's family announces his death at Kingston, Ontario on December 13th, 2006. He will be remembered and mourned by his beloved wife Katie. He was the much loved father of Elspeth, Jane (John NIXON), Malcolm (Sharon) and Sally (Richard HAMILTON). John will be sorely missed by his grandchildren Katie and Christopher NIXON, Sarah, Emma and Katy CARMICHAEL and Holly HAMILTON. Born in Saskatchewan and educated in Regina, Toronto and Vancouver, John followed in his father's footsteps to the Faculty of Medicine at Queen's University, graduating in 1953. After training in Surgery and Obstetrics and Gynaecology in British Columbia, Toronto and Harvard, and having had the experience of clinical practice in Regina, he returned to Queen's in 1966. Doctor CARMICHAEL joined the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Queen's University in 1966 and started the Division of Gynaecologic Oncology the same year. In 1972 he was appointed head of the first Division of Gynaecologic Oncology created in Canada, providing leadership for 21 years. Initially responsible for the obstetrical and gynaecological service at Hotel Dieu Hospital, Doctor CARMICHAEL was promoted to full Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 1976 and Oncology in 1986. In 1989 he also assumed the leadership of the Department of Oncology's Division of Surgical Oncology. In 1992, he became acting head of the Department of Oncology and Chief Executive Officer of the Kingston Regional Cancer Centre. In 1980 he assumed the inaugural presidency of the Society of Gynaecologic Oncologists of Canada. For having helped 'give birth' to this Society, he was awarded the Gynaecologic Oncologists of Canada Presidential Gold Medal in 2005 for his outstanding leadership. Recognized nationally and internationally throughout his career for his clinical research, especially in the area of cervical cancer screening, Doctor CARMICHAEL applied enthusiasm, vigor and a distinctive style to his work. As a University Senator representing the Queen's Faculty of Medicine for an unprecedented two terms, his contributions to the collegial leadership of the university, the faculty and the medical community were widely appreciated. During retirement Dr. CARMICHAEL enjoyed playing a leadership role in a variety of community organizations. His numerous colleagues and Friends reflect fondly on his love of history, music and lively debate. His sharp intellect and colorful personality will surely be missed by all. A sportsman throughout his life, John was a competitive sailor, avid golfer, mountaineer and skiing enthusiast. Heart surgery in 2000, only strengthened his resolve to climb higher, ski faster and live each day to the fullest. One of his proudest achievements in retirement was becoming a Canadian Ski Instructor Alliance certified ski instructor and spending winters teaching at the Lake Louise Ski School. He climbed every mountain. A funeral service will be held at 1: 00 p.m. Saturday, December 16th, 2006 at St. George's Cathedral; located at King Street East and Johnson Street, Kingston. A reception will follow at Ban Righ Hall, Queen's University.

ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, The Reverend Dr. Clifford A.S. (1919-2006)
Peacefully at home, surrounded by love on February 27, 2006 in his 87th year after a lengthy illness. He is survived by his wife, Mary SANDERSON, his children: Cherry (Bill WEBSTER) of Newmarket; Kirk (Donna GRIFFITH) and Stuart (Monica HAMILTON), both of Toronto, his brother-in-law, Robert MITCHELL of White Rock, British Columbia and grandchildren: Daryll, Kimberley, Meredith, Gillian and Gwendolyn. Predeceased by his parents, Annie JENNINGS and George ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, his first wife, Patricia KIRKPATRICK (1977,) his daughter, Gracie (1981;) his sisters, Grace MITCHELL of Montreal and White Rock (2003) and Doris GROSE of Swift Current (1999) and his brothers, Walter of Langley, British Columbia (2005) and Lloyd of Montreal (1986). Cliff was born in Langham, Saskatchewan. and was always fiercely proud of his Saskatchewan roots. He studied theology at St. Andrew's College in Saskatoon and at Union Theological College, Columbia University in New York where he obtained his doctorate with great distinction. Ordained by The United Church of Canada in 1942 at the age of 23, he served pastorates in Dundurn, Saskatchewan. (1942-44), Third Ave., North Battleford, Saskatchewan. (1947-52), St. Giles, Hamilton (1952-59), Robertson (now Robertson-Wesley), Edmonton (1959-66), Metropolitan, Toronto (1966-75) and Bloor Street, Toronto (1975-86). Cliff's great gift and passion was in conveying the message of the Gospel. This was manifested in radio programmes (Sunday School of the Air in North Battleford and The Good Ship Crusader in Hamilton) as well as two minute weekly spots on Station CFRB (1970-86) in Toronto; a festival of the arts, dayspring at Metropolitan United Church; a controversial sculpture of The Crucified Woman at Bloor Street Church (1979); articles in The United Church Observer (1960's-1990's) and monthly columns in The Toronto Star. Following his retirement in 1986, Cliff was a popular anniversary preacher and retreat leader across the country and a volunteer chaplain at Casey House Hospice for people with A.I.D.S. and Wellesley Hospital's H.I.V./A.I.D.S. wing. He taught at many of the United Church's theological colleges during his ministry and was the author of several books. Cliff travelled extensively in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America; in China, East Germany and Russia and gained on-the-spot understanding of current social and political conditions which informed his preaching. Throughout Cliff's life, singing was an important expression of his faith and love of life and even in his last years when his memory failed him he continued to sing. For over forty years he cottaged on Little Boshkung Lake at Carnarvon in Haliburton, Ontario. For ten and a half years, following a stroke during surgery, Cliff was cared for in his own home. The family is grateful to the many, many Friends, Community Care East York, Bayview Community Hospice and Dr. Ian FERGUSON and Dr. Robert McKELLAR who supported them during this time and made it possible for Cliff to remain at home. A celebration of Cliff's life will be held at Bloor Street United Church, 300 Bloor St. W. (corner of Bloor and Huron) on Saturday, March 4 at 11: 00 a.m. Visiting will be on Friday, March 3 at Bloor Street United Church from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Donations in Cliff's memory may be made to The Clifford Elliott Spirit of Saskatchewan Ministry Trust Fund, c/o The United Church of Canada, 3250 Bloor Street West, Suite 300, Toronto, Ontario M8X 2Y4.
