In loving memory of my wife Irene HIGGINS.
To know her was to love her,
Both for family and Friends,
And the sweetness of her memory
Time can neither dim nor end.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
Because part of me went with you,
The day God called you home.

WILSON, William Robert (1916-2006)
Born in Toronto on August 15, 1916 to Elizabeth CALDWELL and William S. WILSON, Bill died peacefully surrounded by his family on March 30, 2006. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 63 years, Margaret, and his three children, David (Shelagh HIGGINS,) Ken and Ann (Rob PRICHARD.) He was adored by his nine grandchildren Amy, Katie and Hilary WILSON, Alex, Erika and Ian WILSON and Wilson, Kenny and Jay PRICHARD. Bill grew up in Toronto and lived there for most of his life. He attended Victoria University at the University of Toronto, where he met his wife and life companion Margaret LAVERY. Upon graduation in 1941, he enlisted with the Royal Canadian Air Force where he became Squadron Leader and was awarded the Air Force Cross for distinguished service. After the war he joined the T. Eaton Company where he had a long and successful career spanning 36 years. Upon mandatory retirement at the age of 65, he continued to work as a consultant for Eaton's for an additional ten years. Always an energetic and generous contributor to many community activities too numerous to list, he was particularly involved over many years as a director of Anglican Houses (now Leap of Faith, Toronto Community Services). His most passionate pursuit was his family and his many close Friends, a number of whom felt that the affectionate nickname 'Saint Bill' suited him remarkably well. The family thanks the staff at St. Mike's for the superb treatment Bill received while in their care. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Sunday, April 2nd.

CADARIO, Dorothy
Died on June 18, 2006 at the age of 88. She was a wife, a mother, and one of the longtime residents of Leaside, Toronto. She was the widow of Harry CADARIO, Director of Engineering at Ontario Hydro. Dorothy leaves behind her children, Paul of Washington, D.C., and Barbara of Vancouver, British Columbia, and her sister Corinne HIGGINS of Brockville, Ontario. Dorothy was a beautiful, intelligent, and very strong woman. She grew up on the St. Lawrence River in Brockville, where she loved to canoe. Her happiest times as an adult were spent raising her children and she retained a life-long delight in young children. She regretted that she never went to university, and after her retirement from the Borough of East York, she was an avid participant and loyal volunteer in Later Life Learning at the University of Toronto, as well as Living and Learning in Retirement at Glendon College. Dorothy was as devoted to her family, as they were to her. She never hurt a fly. Dorothy died of old age at her home, after suffering for several years from the uneven care provided by the professionals of the Ontario healthcare system and by the private homecare industry. Thanks go to Vicki JOHNSTON of the East York Community Care Access Centre, for her exemplary help, to Doctor Jamie MEUSER and his team at the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, to Lisa, and to those caregivers who were good to her. Barbara and Paul will receive visitors at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East) from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, June 22nd. The Funeral Mass in celebration of Dorothy's life will take place on Friday, June 23rd at 10: 30 a.m. in St. Anselm's Church, 1 MacNaughton Road (at Millwood). In lieu of flowers, please send a letter to your provincial Minister of Health asking that increased funding be devoted to affordable, quality homecare for the elderly, so that they may spend their last days in peace and safety. Donations may be made to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care at Mount Sinai Hospital, 600 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1X5.
