ALLEN, Jean Rodgers Kerfoot
By Ann WALMSLEY, Page A16
Librarian, wit, aunt, wife. Born November 26, 1916, in Picton, Ontario Died November 18, 2005, in Toronto, of natural causes, aged 88.
When Jean KERFOOT finally married at the age of 56, her wedding invitation read "I am about to commit matrimony." She had just retired as librarian of the Ontario Legislative Library -- the first to have a professional library-science degree. She liked to joke that she was one of the few people who retired and then settled down.
As she stood before the minister in her 1970s green crochet-knit wedding dress and flamboyant white fur stole, we, her devoted clan of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, bid farewell to her epic spinsterhood. Long a maiden aunt living with her unmarried sister Anna, Jean was the quintessential independent, irreverent and culturally sophisticated auntie. She rescued various nieces and nephews from suburban monotony by giving them their own accounts at Britnell's book store in Toronto, inviting them to travel with her to New York City and exposing them to French restaurants. In 1950, she became one of the few single women of her peer group to buy her own car, a British-made Ford Prefect, and to purchase her own acre of land north of Toronto, where she built a modest cabin.
Our heads rang with her folksy aphorisms. Upon hearing that one great-great-niece would attend her alma mater, Victoria College: "That'll put some polish on the kid." Or her stoic: "Leave her lay where Jesus flang her."
Born in Prince Edward County, the youngest girl in a family of five girls and one boy, she was largely self-made. Her father, textbook editor in the Ontario Department of Education, died during her last year at university and she struggled to find work in the months before the Second World War. Finally in September 1939, at age 23, she landed a job as a typist and book retriever at the legislative library. Seeing her potential, the library encouraged her to enroll in the McGill library science program, after which they appointed her senior librarian.
At 46, she took on the top job, just as the government was launching a disruptive renovation of the library, which is housed at Queen's Park. Jean supported the plan to build better study areas for members, but put her foot down on a proposal to run an air conditioning duct through the stacks. Her tenure saw improvements to the law collections -- critical for legislators -- and many other advances.
After retiring, Jean focused on raising her two teenaged stepchildren with her husband Basil ALLEN, a widower. Her life lesson to them was to take time every day to discuss the day's events because those simple topics could cascade into great discussions. Jean and Baz fostered those talks by requiring that all televisions and radios be shut off at 5 p.m.
Meanwhile Jean continued to be the glue that bound the extended family. She operated her cottage not as a treat for herself, but as a retreat for family or Friends. At age 82, she self-published an elegant cloth-bound Kerfoot family history because she was the last surviving Kerfoot sister able to pass on the stories.
Her enthusiasm for her favourite book, the 1896 novel The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett, attracted others to her University Women's Club book group. At book discussions Jean was known for her insights, at the club's marathon bridge group, for her droll asides, and at Soroptimist Club service organization fundraisers, for her gleeful baking stints. Even when Jean was "blind, half-deaf and lame," as she herself said, she entertained Friends several times a week -- always creating a memorable exchange.
Jean may have committed matrimony, but she also remained a committed aunt, friend, and contagious wit.
Ann WALMSLEY is one of Jean's great-nieces

KERN, Doctor Rolf Robert
On the evening of Friday, April 21, 2006, Rolf succumbed to heart failure and passed away peacefully at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto. After thirteen years battling prostate cancer and five years post kidney failure, his strength could endure no more for his 78 years. Predeceased in 1998 by Inge, his wife of 40 years, Rolf was a loving and devoted father to his three girls Rona and husband Luke O'CONNOR of Los Angeles, Barbara and husband Dougal MacDONALD of Toronto and Petra and husband James SWAYZE of Toronto. His five grandchildren, Elina O'CONNOR, Katrina MacDONALD and Spencer, Olivia and Erika SWAYZE will miss their beloved Opi who leaves a legacy as a caring and conscientious patriarch. Born on August 5, 1927, to Friedrich and Lina in Freiburg, Germany, Rolf and brother Fritz worked the Bakerei Kern before a war-torn Germany saw him imprisoned in a Siberian camp at the age of 18. Before immigrating to Toronto, Canada in 1958 to help spearhead the North American expansion of the Gerling Konzern insurance operations, Rolf completed his PhD in Economics at the University of Freiburg. During his studies, Rolf traveled extensively and was honored as the first German student invited to the United States by the Rotary Club. His business savvy and intelligence earned him the position of President and Director of Gerling Global General and Reinsurance companies where he led the organization to an unprecedented record of 10 straight years of underwriting profit. His passion for beauty in many forms was evident in the rose gardens of his Willowdale home and Muskoka cottage and in his appreciation of music and modern dance. His intuitive investment philosophy saw continued success beyond his retirement where his keen sense for resource stocks and currency trading earned him a following in financial circles. Revered for his wisdom and respected for his strength of character and integrity his greatest attribute was his generosity. As a mentor to future leaders, a helping hand to those in need or the simple gesture of chocolates for the parking attendant, Rolf concerned himself with the well being of others above all. Spiritually, through meditation and yoga, his belief in Buddhist teachings and the reincarnation of the soul will ensure that he will always be among us. 'Life is hard if you take it hard' was his mantra and few people could boast such a robust and fulfilling existence - every day he was with us, Rolf KERN truly lived. Special thanks to Lilia ABOC who was not only a caregiver but a companion to Rolf for many years and whose devotion shone through in his final days. Doctor BAXTER, Nurse Sam and rest of the team deserve credit for making his stay at Saint Michael's so pleasant towards the end. Thanks must also go to the extraordinary group of nurses led by Doctor GOLDSTEIN in the hemodialysis unit of the hospital for their help in sustaining Rolf's life through the past 5 years with kindness and compassion. A celebration of Rolf's life will take place at the Granite Club located at 2350 Bayview Avenue north of Lawrence this Friday, April 28, 2006, from 5: 00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. with a tribute at 6: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Hemodialysis Unit, Saint Michael's Hospital expressed in the name of Rolf KERN, would be appreciated.

TEETER, Wayne
In loving memory of Wayne TEETER.
Josette KERNS
I wish with all my heart I could see you once more, I would use that moment and time to tell you how much love my heart holds for you and I shall never close that door.
Life each and every day without you keeps going on even if some days I do not wish it I know I am being selfish and maybe even wrong, but to see you just once more I so very much long.
I try to remember all the loving and happy times we were granted to enjoy and share, I try to understand and not cry but to see you once more even only for a moment to let you know just how very much I do care.
I know that day will eventually come when its my turn to this world to say goodbye, but until then I shall hold your love close to my heart and sometimes I shall break down and cry, and I will still ask the question why did you have to die?
- Love Cindy

John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Engineer: (1924-2006)
Unsung hero of Canada's Imax success story knew how to make the big-screen technology work
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Montreal -- He was the man in the engine room of the good ship Imax. John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was an engineering guru, a genius at tinkering who was the brains behind making the Imax corporation's giant-screen technology work as well as it did. Years before, he was the wizard who helped keep Expo 67's Labyrinth film project going. And when it was all over, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS went back to his first love -- the humble train.
In the meantime, his other passion remained electronics. As a teenager during the Depression, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's future in telecommunications was foreshadowed when he plied his talent for radio repair in the small town of Sutton in Quebec's Eastern Townships. Neighbours and customers paid 25 cents to have their wonky Radiolas, RCA Victors and Silvertones tinkered back into working order.
At 18, poor eyesight disqualified him from serving in any of the Canadian armed forces during the Second World War. At the suggestion of doctors who advised he spend less time in libraries with his head buried in books, he worked for a year with the Canadian Pacific Railroad and then enrolled at McGill University.
It was while earning his degree in science that he met his wife, Althea McCOY, a likeminded student who became his life-long collaborator. They were both involved in the McGill drama department. Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was in charge of lighting and his future wife was the costume co-ordinator. Their initial collaboration at the McGill Red and White Revue revealed a symbiotic relationship that would often find the couple working side by side."The smartest thing I ever did was to marry him," said writer and archivist Althea DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. "Creighton was my favourite proof reader and copy editor."
The couple married in 1948 and the following year he departed for a career in the Quebec wilderness repairing radio transmitters for Canadian Marconi. He later travelled to England, sent by Marconi, to study the emerging world of television.
When the couple returned to Canada, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS began demonstrating the principles of television at trade fairs. With both of them operating a camera, the duo wowed Toronto audiences at the Canadian National Exhibition in 1950. Althea DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS recalled how aiming the camera at the crowds delighted visitors, who, through closed-circuit monitors, discovered themselves on television for the first time. Commercial television was still a few years away and she lays claim that the experience at the Canadian National Exhibition made her Canada's first female operator of a television camera.
Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's cutting-edge knowledge of the new medium resulted in work as a consultant with the Canadian Broadcasting Company when it first went on the air in 1952. Later, he returned to Canadian Marconi as the engineering manager for Montreal's CFCF radio and in 1961, he supervised the construction of a television transmission tower. Erected at the top of Mount Royal, it broadcast the first television signals when CFCF-television at last went on the air.
Regarded as a technical genius, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was the go-to person hired by the National Film Board of Canada to orchestrate the Labyrinth project for the 1967 world's fair in Montreal. A multiscreen film, In the Labyrinth, was a smash hit at Expo and is considered the precursor to today's large-format films. Using a complicated projection system with three synchronized viewing chambers, it featured stereo sound and a mirrored maze.
Colin Low, the National Film Board of Canada's former head of animation, said that Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS possessed the right mix of flexibility and vigour necessary to handle the madness that In the Labyrinth inspired. "A lot of things, we had never tried before. Creighton was intrigued by it. He made it work. Labyrinth was one of the starting points for Imax technology."
Imax was a revolution in the movie industry. What made it arrestingly different was the sheer size and crispness of the projected image, combined with resonant, multitrack sound systems. No matter what the subject, watching can be viscerally intense -- a fact that directors have exploited with roller-coaster intensity ever since the first Imax title, North of Superior, lit up the media. The format uses the largest film frame in movie history, 10 times the size of conventional 35-mm film. The screens, too, were oversized, as tall as eight storeys.
The system was the brainchild of five Canadian visionaries who toiled for more than a quarter of a century to make Imax Corp. a household word in entertainment. Graeme FERGUSON, Robert KERR, Roman KROITOR, Bill SHAW and Bill BREUKELMAN founded Imax and pioneered the giant-screen, large-format film medium before selling the technology in 1994 to a group of American investors for about $100-million (U.S.).
All the same, few knew the system better than Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. In 1981, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS found himself in France supervising the installation of a new generation of Imax screens. His final Imax project was to co-ordinate the installation of the company's theatre at the Museum of Civilization.
In retirement, he returned to the much less complicated technology of locomotives, and the tracks they travelled down. His interest also left its mark on his marriage, for his wife possessed railway roots of her own ("My father worked for the Canadian National Railway," she said), and together they co-wrote Canadian Railway Records: A Guide for Genealogists, a resource for families with rail connections going back about 150 years.
The DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS manual, composed for family historians, offers tips and resources for recovering historical records of family members via ticket sales and the vast network of railway payrolls, journals, magazines and subsidiary companies. In the introduction, the couple wrote, "this book has been a joint effort but we each have our own areas of expertise. Creighton wrote much of the material on the railway way of life, working conditions and so on. Althea did the archival work checking documents and bibliographical data and wrote about libraries and archives so, inevitably, on occasion we wrote in the first person singular and at other times in the first person plural."
Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS also added a consumer warning: "The railway offers such a variety of intriguing information and experience that there is some aspect that will intrigue almost everyone." In other words, railways are highly addictive and can absorb all your free time and available money.
John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was born on August 15, 1924, in Cowansville, Quebec He died of a congestive heart failure on February 6, 2006 in Ottawa. He is survived by his wife.

Florence is mourned by children Robert (Dale), Josephine, Geoffrey, Stephanie (Alexander), 7 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren and countless Friends.

Her formative years were spent in Sackville, New Brunswick on the campus of Mount Allison University, where her mother also taught, while Florence studied Home Economics. Upon graduation, she worked at Toronto Western Hospital as a dietician.

TERHUNE, David
Musician, editor, friend. Born February 6, 1951 in Toronto. Died April 19 in Markham, Ontario, after a fall, aged 55.
By John KERR, Page A20
David TERHUNE was born, the younger of two sons, to Moore and Ruth TERHUNE. He was raised and lived almost all his life in Markham, Ontario I first met him in 1956 when my family moved from Sutton, Ontario, to Paradise Avenue in Markham. For me, David was the boy next door who quickly became my best friend. Our homes backed on to the old Markham Fair Grounds, which extended to the Rouge Valley. One day, when we were only five years old, we got into an altercation and started throwing stones at each other. After taking one in the face, I ran crying to my mother. She in turn called David's mother, Ruth. David -- fearing the worst -- elected to run away from home and fled to the safety of the Rouge Valley. I was given some candy to aid my recovery while the mothers organized a search-party to find and rescue David. An hour later David had circled around the valley and come home via another route.
We quickly made up and enjoyed my treats while awaiting the return of our mothers from their search.
We spent many wonderful days exploring the ravine where we fished, hunted, played games and enjoyed the great outdoors. In winter we played hockey on the frozen Rouge River and also built, in true Canadian tradition, some great backyard hockey rinks, which the whole neighbourhood gang enjoyed.
Spring, summer and fall found us playing road-hockey or baseball and football in the fairgrounds. There were also summer swimming lessons at the Markham outdoor pool. David was a quiet but athletic boy who was well-liked.
In those days, Markham was still a small town and provided all the benefits of country life. David and his family were great lovers of the outdoors and every summer they took their vacations on extended canoe trips along the Madawaska River. David learned the wilderness arts of canoeing, fishing and hunting and became a master of all three. Camping is a great time for family bonding and these bonds surely accounted for David's willingness to care for his parents in their retirement years.
David and I walked back and forth to school, twice a day for eight years while attending Franklin Street Public School and later James Robinson. In those days, everyone came home for lunch. We spent so much time together that most people assumed that we were brothers -- especially after our mothers knitted us almost matching wool sweaters. We really did become closer than brothers over time. We shared everything that we owned and our mothers took turns feeding us and driving us to Cubs, Scouts, swimming lessons and other events. The boyhood dream of owning a dog that we loved and cared for was ours as well: David owned a hound named Cloe and I had a cocker spaniel named Ripper.
Our high-school days were spent at Markham District High School where we slowly drifted apart, as we chose different programs and sports. After graduating I went off to university to pursue a career in business and David went to college where he trained as a writer and journalist. Just after graduating, he and his older brother Jack published a book on seals. David became an editor of trade magazines and continued to live in an apartment that was attached to his parents' home. In addition to writing, David was also an accomplished musician and enjoyed playing the guitar at local establishments.
David cared for his aging parents until they both passed away and then a tragic accident took his life. I will always remember him as a quiet faithful companion and the best childhood friend a boy could ever ask for.
John KERR is a friend of David TERHUNE.

HACKETT, Dr. Gerald Thomas
At Orillia Soldiers Memorial Hospital on Friday, February 3, 2006, after cheating death for 67 years. Gerry was a devoted family man, married for 55 years to Muriel (née KERR.) Proud father of Lynne, David, and Elaine LENZ; delighted grandfather of Danielle (Dani) and Drew OSMOND of Keswick; Jesse HACKETT of Maryhill; and Helen and Henry LENZ of Keswick. Though he held many jobs before becoming an educator, the latter was his life's work. Gerry may have been the last University of Toronto student to obtain his undergraduate and graduate degrees including doctoral, by summer, evening, and weekend attendance while holding down jobs as grade teacher, special education teacher, Public School Inspector, Superintendent, and regional specialist consultant in Special Education. Gerry and Muriel and family lived in York Borough, Toronto, Port Credit, Gananoque, Brampton, Sarnia, and Kitchener in his work. A lifelong Anglican, Gerry did his part as churchwarden, Sunday School Superintendent, fund raiser, photographer, and general jack of all trades in the churches he attended. He was a solid believer in the King James Bible and the Book of Common Prayer, and wrote a brief factual history of the Anglican Church. Gerry was Worshipful Master of his Masonic Lodge, Unity number 606, in 1961, following his father who served in 1932. He also served in several Rotary Clubs, participating in civic betterment projects, as well as judging Lion's Club public speaking contests. Once played Den Mother for a busload of Toronto Township Grade 8 winners whose prize was an overnight trip to Cornwall to tour the St. Lawrence Hydro development then under construction. A lifelong Conservative, Gerry has donated cash, knocked on doors in Dovercourt Davenport riding, provincial and federal, and for the Reform Party in his current home, Simcoe County. Served as President of the Ontario Public Service Employees' Union regional education office in Region 5. There was never any doubt about his opinions on any matter! A ravenous and omnivorous reader all his life, Gerry also enjoyed the computer revolution of recent years, and wrote a family history, collecting many photographic, movie, video, and digital pictures in the course of this work. His chief hobbies were carpentering, electrical and electronic, motor mechanics, and plumbing at home. He had a tremendous tool collection and loved to visit flea markets, especially in Florida, where he and Muriel wintered for twenty years after retirement, with visits from family and Friends, making new American and French Canadian Friends there and on email. Gerry made as much progress as he could with his talents and time and health. His Friends were not large in numbers but of supreme quality. His voice and enthusiasm will be missed in many places. In memory of Gerry HACKETT's life, donations to St. David's Anglican Church, Orillia would be appreciated by the family.

Barrie mom faced custody hearing
Girls, 1 and 3, found dead at home
Family court appearance set for today
By Jim WILKES and Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporters with files from Peter EDWARDS
Barrie -- Friends say a woman charged with killing her two young daughters feared she was about to lose them in a bitter custody battle with her estranged husband.
The latest chapter in the custody dispute was to have played out in family court today, but yesterday's slayings of Sophia CAMPIONE, 3, and her year-old sister Serena have brought that hearing to a tragic end.
Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, 31, will instead face two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of the blond-haired tots who one friend described as "perfect little angels."
Neighbours in the 13-storey apartment building on Coulter Street, a stone's thrown from Bayfield St. and Highway 400 in Barrie's north end, were stunned by news that police had found the children dead when they answered an emergency call shortly after 6 a.m. yesterday.
Insp. Jim FARRELL said CAMPIONE had placed a 911 call reporting "two dead children inside an apartment."
As officers stood watch over the slain youngsters' bodies, CAMPIONE was taken to Royal Victoria Hospital for a medical examination and then moved to police headquarters for questioning.
Police were awaiting the results of autopsies today to learn how the children were killed.
"It's a sad day for the city of Barrie," FARRELL said.
CAMPIONE had moved to the apartment, behind the huge Bayfield Mall, a few months ago after separating from her husband, Leo, who was living with his parents in Woodbridge.
Neighbours said Children's Aid Society workers had visited her twice in recent weeks as she prepared for today's custody hearing.
Some recalled seeing the little girls running in the hallways of the building or holding on to their mother in the elevators.
"They were the sweetest little girls that you've ever seen in your life -- tiny, petite and well-behaved," said neighbour Cathie MORGAN, 50. "The mother always took such good care of them. They were always dressed in princess dresses."
MORGAN said she was struggling to understand how anyone could take two precious, innocent lives.
CAMPIONE was a "woman who was tormented," said friend Sharon LYNN, who wiped tears from red-rimmed eyes as she placed flowers outside the building late yesterday afternoon.
LYNN said CAMPIONE was struggling to cope with a life that was "so bad.
"That mother needs a hug," she said. "She needs to know that people love her."
John KERR said he last saw the mother and daughters in an elevator a day earlier.
"She's not a happy woman," said KERR, 37. "I've never ever seen that woman smile.
"She was not a happy person at all."
A resident of the Woodbridge neighbourhood where Leo CAMPIONE grew up said the girls' mother went into a deep depression after the birth of her second child last year.
She said the mother dropped the children off at her in-laws, saying she couldn't deal with them.
At one point, she didn't even want to see the kids, so the grandmother took them in, the neighbour said.
One neighbour on the Woodbridge street where the dead girl's grandparents live collapsed when she heard the news of the slayings.
Other neighbours described the girls' father as a hard-working, soft-spoken construction worker who loved to spend time with his children.
"He loved his kids," said Elisa RIZZO, a grandmother who watched Leo CAMPIONE grow up on the street, fall in love, then suffer through marriage break-up.
"He wanted to work things out for the kids, and he loved his wife too," said RIZZO.
Family members guarded the grandparents' door from the media as red-eyed neighbours dropped in to pay their respects.
Neighbours said the girls' grandparents loved to walk the girls through the neighbourhood where many families have lived for a quarter-century.
"They would walk them every day," one said.
"They loved to take them to the park and to church," said another.
The building where the slayings took place is operated by the Barrie Municipal Non-Profit Housing Corporation, which provides geared-to-income and full-market-rate units.
Ann HARVEY, the corporation's community relations manager, said she had met the family and described the two dead girls as "very sweet."
"The whole family was very wonderful -- gentle, sweet people," she said. "They were nice young children.
"There's just sadness, just overwhelming sadness."
Barrie had just two homicides in 2005.
"Barrie doesn't see too many homicides in a year," said Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND. "To make it two children, it touches the hearts of everybody.
"It's going to take some time for people to try to consume why this occurred," he said. "Hopefully we'll have some answers for the public in time to come.
"There's still a lot of legwork that has to be done by investigators."
GOODBRAND said he was moved as he watched the youngsters' bodies removed from the building.
"It chokes me up," he said. "I have two children about the same ages.
"I can't imagine anything like this. It would be my worst nightmare."
