WARD, Tim
In loving memory of our son, brother and grand_son Tim, who left us 15 years ago, February 19, 1991 (our Valentine).
We never asked for miracles
But today one would do
To see the door swing open
And see our Tim walk through
if we could have one lifetime wish
One dream that would come true
It would be to sit and talk about
The last 15 years we missed with you.
We miss you, Tim.
-Forever loved and missed by Mom and Dad, Jamie and Grandma JOHNSTON.

Miss you dearly, yes I do
Positive thoughts I crave from you
Your strength and strong will still lives on
For a piece of you I hold on strong
I thank you Glenn for who you. were
I appreciate you more just as if you were here
You were so beautiful inside and out
You'll never be forgotten, that's no doubt
Hope some day we meet again
For now my love I wish to send.

Body found in parking lot
34-year-old Owen Sound man charged with manslaughter
By Jonathon JACKSON with files from Michael DEN TANDT and Bill HENRY, Page A1
An Owen Sound man has been charged with manslaughter after the death of an Owen Sound businessman died after what police believe may have been an "altercation" Monday night.
James MORELLI, 34, has been remanded in custody pending a bail hearing today. He was charged after William "Larry" HILSDEN was found unconsciious in a downtown parking lot Monday night.
Two people were originally taken into custody Tuesday, but one was later released.
Chief Tom KAYE of the Owen Sound Police Services said earlier Tuesday, before any charges had been laid, that police were " investigating it as though there were foul play involved, but to what extent that is, we don't know."
Yellow crime scene tape cordoned off a large section of the municipal parking lot behind the Golden Sand restaurant, formerly the Ritz Cafe, on Tuesday.
Const. Chantelle BEIRNES of the Mount Forest-based Ontario Provincial Police Forensic Identification Unit and acting Capt. Greg SCOTT of Owen Sound Fire and Emergency Services filmed the lot from an aerial fire truck.
James MORTON lives in an apartment above the restaurant. He said in an interview he was returning from a walk Monday night when he saw two men in the parking lot. One was lying on the ground next to the open driver's door of a truck, his legs under the vehicle.
"I thought the other guy had beat him up or something," MORTON said, "but he said, 'I found him like this and I can't get a pulse.' I tried and I couldn't get one either."
MORTON said the first man called 911. Emergency services worked on the unconscious man for some time before moving him to the Owen Sound hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The cause of death was not released by police and hospital staff declined to provide that information. Police said in a news release Tuesday night an autopsy will be performed in London on Thursday.
Darlene NELSON, a server at the Golden Sand restaurant, said HILSDEN was a regular customer at the restaurant, eating there between five and seven days a week.
"He was my landlord for six years and I love him dearly," NELSON said.
She said HILSDEN, 61, ate a late meal Monday and left through the rear entrance at about 10 p.m. According to a news release from the city police, he was found unconscious approximately 30 minutes later in the parking lot.
Few other details have been released but acting Staff Sgt. Vince WURFEL said in the news release police would like to speak to anyone who "may have witnessed an altercation in the municipal parking lot in the 900 block of 3rd Avenue East."
People are asked to call the police at 519-376-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
HILSDEN owned a number of residential properties and businesses in and near Owen Sound over the years. They included a restaurant along the East Bayshore Road, a downtown home electronics store called Hilsden Sight and Sound and the Ted and Grace's snack bar at the corner of 2nd Avenue and 14th Street West. He was in the process of rebuilding Ted and Grace's after a 2004 fire gutted the landmark.
"He was always a good employer to work for," said Jamie JOHNSTON, who worked for several years at Hilsden Sight and Sound. "He always treated us good… even when times were tough, he always made sure I got paid."
HILSDEN's brother, Ronald HILSDEN, said Tuesday the family did not wish to comment.

CANN / JOHNSTON
In loving memory of our dear friend, Mandy, March 10, 2002.
If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to Heaven
To bring you home again.
No farewells were spoken
No time for goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears will flow
What it meant to us to lose you
No one will ever know.
Time! Where did you go?
Author unknown
Lovingly remembered by your forever friend, Laurie VANDYK, and best friend Cindy PEDRO

She was the loving sister of Doctor Marion JOHNSTON (Wallace,) the late Kathleen BECK (Ben) and the late Marguerite McLENNAN (William.) She is survived by her nephew Dr. Peter BECK (Izi,) her niece Doctor Anne WALLACE (Jack) and her nephew Del McLENNAN Q.C. (Jackie.)

Anne is further survived by 20 great-great-nephews and nieces. Anne's father wished each of his daughters to attain a university education in days when post-secondary education for women was not common. Anne and each of her sisters graduated with distinction from the University of Toronto. Anne specialized in household economics and, after graduation, taught in Fort Frances, Ontario. She often referred to her time in Fort Frances as being very happy and enjoyable. She subsequently joined the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War 2.

Anne and her Friends travelled the world and enjoyed every minute of it. In later years she enjoyed discussing the details of their travels with others. Anne maintained her intellectual abilities and considerable curiosity until her final days. She always enjoyed a challenging game of bridge with Friends. In 1967 Anne was awarded the Centennial Medal by the Government of Canada. At Anne's request, she has been cremated and a family memorial service will be held at a later date.

JOHNSTON, James, 1988 -- Died This Day
Newspaper publisher born in Malden, Ontario, in 1927
After earning a doctorate in economics from Indiana University, he decided that working on newspapers was much more to his liking. At one time, he was an assistant editor of the Financial Post and an associate editor of the Stratford Beacon Herald. In 1958, he bought the Aurora Banner, which he later sold to the Toronto Star. In 1965, he became national director of the Conservative Party, but all the while kept his hand in publishing. In 1969, he bought the Cobourg Sentinel Star, Canada's oldest weekly newspaper. He later bought the Port Hope Evening Guide. Over the years, he added several papers to form Northumberland Publishers Ltd. In 1983, he sold the company and retired. He also wrote The Party's Over, a 1971 insider's look at Tory party politics.

JOHNSTON, Doctor Marion Jane (née LAWSON)
After a valiant battle, Marion has moved on to a better life. She was the dearly loved mother of Anne WALLACE and mother-in-law to Jack, who Marion thought, could do anything! Doting grandmother of Paul (Sheila) WALLACE, Liz Wallace PATTERSON (John,) John (Anne-Marie) WALLACE and David WALLACE. Thrilled great-grandmother to Kayla, Nathan and Alyana WALLACE, Sarah and Claire WALLACE and Mason (born on Marion's Birthday) and Quinn PATTERSON. Aunt to Peter BECK and Delwin McLENNAN, who were a great source of pride and joy to Marion. Marion is predeceased by her loving husband William Wallace JOHNSTON, her daughter Marguerite, her parents, three sisters, a baby brother and nephews Gordon McLENNAN and Paul BECK. Marion and her sisters all attended Oakwood Collegiate Institute and proceeded to the University of Toronto, at a time when only a few women obtained higher education. There, Marion studied Biochemistry and obtained her Ph.D. It was in the Biochemistry Department that she met another fellow Ph.D., William Wallace JOHNSTON, whom later she married. As her husband went to Halifax, his young bride followed and there they were instrumental in the development of Cod Liver Oil. They moved to Montreal and then to Toronto, where their careers changed to teaching. Marion did supply teaching and was sought after by many school boards in the west end of Toronto, until she stopped to care for her ailing husband. Marion natured and nurtured all who came in contact with her. She encouraged all to be the best they could. Thank you. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Monday, April 3rd from 12-1 p.m. followed by a service in the chapel at 1 o'clock. Interment York Cemetery.

JOHNSTON, Robert H.
By Alan CASSELS, Page A16
Professor, wit, raconteur, thespian. Born July 29, 1937, in Toronto. Died October 19, 2005, in Hamilton, Ontario, of cancer, aged The bare facts of Bob JOHNSTON's life and career read like those of a conventional academic. Although he was indeed a successful academic, he was also so much more.
Educated in English boarding schools, he obtained his degrees in history from the University of Toronto and Yale University. After teaching briefly at the University of Calgary, in 1969 he came to McMaster University where he remained for the rest of his career. He published two well-received books on Russian history and a number of articles, but what a legion of Friends and colleagues remember most fondly about him is his life outside the classroom and library.
Bob JOHNSTON was at his best in company. He was a brilliant conversationalist with a Wildean wit. He was particularly adept at pricking pomposity, although he never did so cruelly; often his humour was self-deprecatory. It was perhaps his love of language and words that lay behind his extraordinary linguistic ability; he was one of those rare people who can pick up a foreign language at the drop of a hat. He mastered Russian in a matter of weeks at language school, and from that base he was able to converse easily in their own language with any Polish, Czech or other Slavic visitor to McMaster. Sometimes he would surprise by revealing unexpected familiarity with a language; I once recall him interpreting to my astonishment a rude word someone had uttered in Afrikaans. In France, the natives would often mistake him for one of their own.
No doubt a photographic memory (for certain things) aided his linguistic prowess. He could recite -- or sing, because he had a fine voice -- a vast amount of opera from Mozart to Gilbert and Sullivan. The prompter was seldom used when Bob JOHNSTON was on stage in the many amateur theatrical productions in which he appeared in the Hamilton area. Those with whom he acted have been heard to say he could have enjoyed a professional theatrical career had he chosen.
They say that teaching is a form of acting. Bob's thespian and story-telling ability meant that his classes were invariably the history department's most popular. The drudgery of academic administration did not seem a fit with his lively and irreverent spirit. Yet, in his last years before retirement, he assumed the chairmanship of McMaster's history department, as well as a decanal post. He was successful in these roles -- thanks to a generous tolerance of his colleagues' foibles.
In spite of an outward mien of a debonair boulevardier, Bob was also capable of a steely determination. Left wheelchair-bound after an operation for cancer and a professional opinion that he would never walk again, he resolved to disprove the prognosis. He put himself through extensive hydrotherapy treatment, and was featured as a model patient in a television clip of a Hamilton hydrotherapy clinic. First, he graduated from wheelchair to walker, and in due course was able to take several steps unaided; for example, from lobby to theatre seat at the Stratford and Shaw festivals. His Friends remain torn between joy at this exceptional triumph over physical adversity and sorrow that he had so little time in which to enjoy his recovered partial mobility.
Bob JOHNSTON never married, but he was quintessentially a ladies' man. In his last difficult days, it was noticeable that he managed, under heavy sedation, to respond best to the female visitors at his bedside. A memorial service at McMaster attracted probably the largest audience ever for such an occasion. It was a fitting tribute to a multidimensional personality with a remarkable talent for Friendship.
Alan CASSELS is Bob JOHNSTON's friend of 36 years.

JOHNSTON, Douglas Millar, LLM, McL, JSD
Douglas Millar JOHNSTON, LLM, McL, JSD, succumbed to recurring prostate cancer on Saturday, May 6th, just having celebrated his 75th birthday. Born in Dundee, Scotland, he immigrated to Canada in 1955, after graduating from St. Andrews University. He worked as an Executive Trainee at Eatons before realizing that academia was his calling. Earning post-graduate degrees from McGill and Yale Universities, he went on to teach at the New School for Social Research in New York City, the University of Western Ontario, Louisiana State University, the University of Toronto, Dalhousie University, the National University of Singapore, and the University of Victoria in a career that lasted until 1999. In retirement he held the titles of Emeritus Professor at University of Victoria Law School and Adjunct Professor at Dalhousie Law School. Demonstrating a passion for writing, he wrote over 30 books and 90 articles in the theory and history of international law, law of the sea, marine and environmental policy studies, comparative law, modern Chinese studies and public policy issues. He died, pen in hand, completing the finishing touches on a comprehensive history of international law. He will be remembered by his colleagues as an institution-builder through the creation of the Southeast Asian Programme in Ocean Law, Policy and Management centered in Bangkok, the Dalhousie Ocean Studies Programme in Halifax and the Maritime Awards Society of Canada dedicated to student scholarships. He was the founding Chair in Asia-Pacific Relations at the University of Victoria.

He leaves behind Judith, his wife and partner of 47 years, a son, Keith, living and working in Bangkok, and a son, Murray and a daughter, Caroline, both in Vancouver. He leaves a lifetime of memories as a kind, generous man with a positive attitude and a great sense of humour, a role model and inspiration to his family.

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.

Scarborough's first policewoman'feisty'
A widow at 38, she worked to support her children as part of Toronto's so-called 'Powder Puff Patrol'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Some smart aleck once thought Evelyn Morden JOHNSTON was driving too slowly. He was right on her tail as she proceeded sedately at precisely the speed limit along a Scarborough side street, before he floored it, crossed the centre line and cut in front of her. Then he slowed right down. He no doubt thought he was giving the little old lady a well-deserved taste of her own medicine and he couldn't have been more wrong.
Deftly and swiftly she overtook him and blocked his way with her car, forcing him to stop. Then she coolly got out and arrested him.
He had just met his match -- and Scarborough's first policewoman.
JOHNSTON had worked stakeouts, undercover, in the youth and women's bureaus. She'd taken the sharpshooting medal at police college. A trim five-foot-one, she was unarmed when she single-handledly arrested a young man for flashing in a public park.
Her granddaughter, Karen BOUCHER, grew up admiring her unconventional Nana. "She was very much a trailblazer, feisty, almost unstoppable."
She'd been a traditional wife and mother until 1950, when her husband, Howard MORDEN, was killed in a car crash on Sammon Ave. in Toronto's east end. A young man with a car full of girls had run a stop sign and smashed into their car. MORDEN put his arm out to hold back his wife and was thrown out of the car, which rolled on him.
At 38, she was left with two children -- Shirley, 21, and Fraser, 19. Friends urged her to find work. She applied for the job of secretary to Scarborough's police chief, got it and was soon conscripted to frisk and escort women prisoners.
Finally her chief told her she was doing the work of a policewoman so why not become one.
"I'm too old," she told her daughter.
"I'll help you study," Shirley replied. "We'd sit at the kitchen table and I would ask her questions from her books." In 1960 MORDEN graduated at the top of her class. She was 50 years old and went back to work at Scarborough's 41 Division in what was then the Metro Toronto Police force.
"I was always worried about her," said her daughter. "Once she phoned and was whispering. She said she was at a stakeout down by the waterfront. I think it was a drug bust. I was scared to death." Usually though, her workday was more routine, even deskbound.
Women officers were still a rarity. The first two had joined Toronto's force in 1913, and their numbers had yet to top 50 when MORDEN joined. When she retired in 1974, there were 63 policewomen and 3,504 male constables. It wasn't until 1975 that women joined the rank and file. Their rank was changed to police constable and they were allowed to carry a gun, where before they'd carried a leather baton in their purse and wore a navy serge jacket, skirt, lisle stockings, white gloves and perky hat.
"In those days women were in very few beats," said Gina BELLAMY, who joined about a decade after MORDEN. " They directed traffic between Eaton's and Simpsons and patrolled Union Station ticketing illegally parked cars."
The policewomen's bureau was located in the old 13 Division station at Markham and London Sts., the only division that housed women overnight. The division had one car, known as WB1, and the policewomen were responsible for handling wayward members of their sex.
But on March 5, 1962, an American documentary was televised across North America. It was called the Powder Puff Patrol and it was all about Toronto's policewomen. The logo was a gun, lipstick and compact. There were shots of policewomen powdering their noses and hovering over typewriters.
MORDEN was featured going undercover as a bag lady, wiping her nose on the sleeve of her ill-fitting coat, with stockings furled at her ankles, shopping bags and a kerchief over a wig. Bureau chief Sgt. Fern ALEXANDER told the cameras MORDEN was "always efficient and always proper" but "just ham enough to be loving" going undercover.
The show's enthusiastic announcer hailed every policewoman's patience and pronounced them "here to stay," while the police chief of the time, James MacKEY, declared they were "excellent public relations officers for our city."
For years the Toronto force used the film for recruiting. "[The film] is an absolute howl," said BELLAMY, who hails the women as true pioneers. Her former husband worked with MORDEN. " Bernie always said that if Ev did a (police) check then it would be done perfectly."
MORDEN worked in the complaints bureau in her final years on the force. She retired in 1974 at 64, having married Insp. Walter JOHNSTON. They met while both worked at 41 Division; JOHNSTON moved to Oshawa to become police chief, later returning to Toronto when he was nominated for the Police Commission. They moved to Mississauga. Eight years later when JOHNSTON died of cancer, she moved to Beaverton near her daughter and her family.
At 90, she was still out shovelling snow. "You could never tell Nana not to do something," said BOUCHER with a laugh.
She died August 15 at age 95.
She had requested a police chaplain at her funeral, and there were also two uniformed police officers as honour guard and a Toronto Police piper. Later, when Shirley was going through her mother's personal effects, she discovered that Toronto Policewoman #5518 was still an active member of the police revolver club.
