OSBORNE, Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS)
Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS) OSBORNE passed away on January 1, 2006 in Grey Bruce Health Centre, Markdale, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.
Jean was born August 29, 1929 to Bert and Emily EDWARDS, who had just immigrated from England to Canada, finally landing in Dundalk. Jean grew up in Dundalk. She was an excellent student and athlete and graduated at a very young age. Then Jean went to work at the Bank of Commerce (C.I.B.C.) in Dundalk.
She met and married her life partner, Dallas OSBORNE, in June 1949, a marriage that lasted over 50 years. Through the years Jean and Dallas raised their four children, Lynda, Steve, Doug and Shelly, while Jean continued to work at the bank. Jean was a kind and caring mother as well as grandmother and then great-grandmother.
Nothing to do with family or at her work was too much for her to handle. She enjoyed the many family get-togethers at the cottage at Wasaga Beach.
On January 31, 1987, Jean officially retired after 32 faithful years at the bank. She had many, many Friends in the community.
Later, Jean and Dallas left Dundalk and moved to Barrie for a few short years, then they both retired to Brewsters Lake, Singhampton. After the passing of Dallas, Jean moved to Markdale. She enjoyed her time there, and met many new Friends.
Through the years Jean and Dallas attended services at Erskine Presbyterian Church, Mount Pleasant Missionary Church, and then later Jean attended as many services as she could at the Eugenia United Church.
Left to mourn Jean are her four children, Lynda (Hans) MUELLER, Steve (Brenda) OSBORNE, Doug (Delores) OSBORNE, and Shelly LAMBERT, ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Also brothers, Jack (Mary) EDWARDS and Peter (Elske) EDWARDS, as well as sisters-in-law Donna WILLIAMS and Marie (Barry) ADAM/ADAMS.
Funeral services were held at the McMillan Jack Funeral Home on Wednesday, January 4.
Patrick HALFERTY, Jean's friend and pastor for some years ably conducted the service that would have pleased Jean very much. Her daughter Lynda played the hymn "Hope" on the piano during the service.
The pallbearers were Chris OSBORNE, Gene MATTHEWS (grand_sons,) Doug OSBORNE, Cameron EDWARDS, Darryl GREEN (nephews,) and Hans MUELLER (son-in-law.) Flowerbearers were grandchildren, interment was held in Dundalk Cemetery following the service. A lovely luncheon was served to family and Friends at the Erskine Presbyterian Church by their ladies group.
The family once again, appreciated everyone's kind words, prayers and support during this difficult time. Mother is and will be truly missed by her family and Friends.

MILNE, William J.
Naval Architect
Bill MILNE was born in Saint John, New Brunswick on June 3, 1928. Bill was a practicing naval architect and university professor in a career spanning nearly five decades. An alumnus of McGill University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Bill trained at shipyards in Europe and Canada before joining the firm of German and Milne in Montreal in 1953, where he was involved in the design of numerous ships for the Canadian government and commercial clients, including research and patrol vessels, package freighters, ferries, tugs, and icebreakers. In 1979 Bill joined the faculty of Memorial University in Saint John's, Newfoundland as founding chairman of the Department of Naval Architectural Engineering - the first such program in Canada - where over 15 years he trained and helped establish in their careers a new generation of Canadian naval architects. Throughout his career Bill served on many ad-hoc and permanent maritime commissions, including the National Research Council Advisory Committee for the location and construction of the 'Ice Tank' which eventually became the Institute for Marine Dynamics in Newfoundland, and numerous government enquiries into the loss of vessels at sea. Among many professional affiliations, Bill was Honorary Life Member of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, serving for many years as secretary of the Eastern Canadian Section and on its education committee. He was also a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, a member of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering, and a founding member of the Marine Technology Society in Canada. Bill leaves his wife of 26 years, Ruth Nicholson MILNE of Farm Point, Quebec. He was formerly married to Jill Thorogood MILNE of Montreal. Bill leaves his children Chris, Geoffrey, Merry Jill, Joseph, and Jonathan; and step-children Anne, Roxanna, John, Lowell, Horton and Walter. Bill was the proud grandfather of 13 wonderful grandchildren. He leaves two sisters - Barbara LAMBERT and Eleanor MILNE, both of Ottawa. Bill loved to walk and ski in the woods with his dogs, and after retiring to the Gatineau in 1994 was an active volunteer in cutting and maintaining hiking trails throughout the neighbourhood. Bill was a voracious reader and collector of books, particularly on Canadian history and the Arctic. He was a birder and stargazer with his grandchildren, and taught two generations of descendants to enjoy Canadian summers and winters skiing, skating, and canoeing.

Margaret GIBSON, Writer: (1948-2006)
Author of Opium Dreams and The Butterfly Ward produced works of singular vision, writes Sandra MARTIN. It was an intense and brilliant output that was too often sidelined by the march of mental illness
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
There were many Margaret GIBSONs and all of them were complicated. She was like a prism that could shimmer with refracted brilliance one moment and then fracture into dangerous shards the next. As a writer, she was like a foreign correspondent reporting from the front lines of insanity, taking readers places where most of us have never been in collections of stories such as The Butterfly Ward and Sweet Poison, screenplays such as Outrageous, Ada and For the Love of Aaron and in her only published novel, Opium Dreams, which won the Chapters/Books in Canada first-novel award in 1997.
Although she self-diagnosed as autistic after she read Donna Williams's memoir, Nobody Nowhere, Ms. GIBSON was probably a paranoid schizophrenic. In one of her "good" periods in the early 1990s she described what it felt like to have a mental illness. "It is not so much that madness… is a muddied eyehole, but rather it is seeing things too sharply, clearer than clear, a light that fills up your eyeholes and is, in the end, blinding with its visions."
Ms. GIBSON worked with some top literary editors, including Ellen SELIGMAN at McClelland and Stewart, Phyllis BRUCE at Harper Collins and Barry CALLAGHAN of Exile Editions. "All writers write out of their experiences, but this was like an open vein," said Mr. CALLAGHAN. "If ever a writer in this country hit on the terrors that seem to strike at women who are defenceless and vulnerable," it was Ms. GIBSON. " She was frightening in her presence and she was frightening in her work because she was really in touch with the madness that was loose inside herself" and by extension, in "metropolitan life." "Losing the words" to describe her terrors was often a signal that her illness was on the march again. And that made knowing Ms. GIBSON a desperate struggle to keep her afloat without being sucked into the whirlpool that was her life. As her loyal friend, Shirley FLAVELLE, said: "She was a 24/7 girl. You could only live with her when you were young."
Margaret Louise GIBSON was the second of five children of Bell Telephone engineer Dane GIBSON and his wife Audrey (neé McCULLOUGH.) She grew up on a small rural property on what was then the eastern edge of Scarborough, Ontario, on land her father, an air force tail gunner in the Second World War, had been able to buy with a veteran's grant. Her older sister Dana was bright, gregarious and an excellent student. Her twin sisters, Lenore and Deirdre, were a younger playful unit. Margaret, or Margie as her family called her, was the solitary dreamy one.
"We were a typical Canadian family except that there was one daughter who was always ill, her whole life," said Deirdre GIBSON, a planner. Margaret GIBSON herself once said that "colours hurt" when she was a child. "A leaf was a kaleidoscope," she said. "Starting kindergarten damn near killed me. But I was never lonely I'm a one-piece band." Puberty is difficult for most adolescents but for Ms. GIBSON it was catastrophic. Always withdrawn, she started slashing her arms and eventually attempted suicide. She spent about a year at the Homewood Health Centre in Guelph, Ontario, experiences that she would later use as a trigger for her fiction. After she was released, her parents sold the beloved family property and moved to a housing development so she could start "over again" in a fresh environment.
The new school was even more disaffecting than the old one, but Margaret did make Friends with two alienated classmates, Shirley FLAVELLE and Craig Russell EADIE. He later became well known as the female impersonator, Craig RUSSELL. A bisexual, he was addicted to drug and drinks and died of an Aids-related stroke in 1990.
In September of 1971, Ms. GIBSON married Stuart GILBOORD, a young man she had met briefly six years earlier through her father. "She was damn interesting to talk with," Mr. GILBOORD said, adding that she was an attractive woman who wore heavy makeup as a defence against the world. Their son Aaron was born on November 22, 1972.
At the time, Ms. GIBSON's psychiatrist was encouraging her to write as therapy. "I would come home from work and we would talk for three or four hours about her writing," said Mr. GILBOORD. Her concentration was all-consuming and obsessive and she used phrases that were brilliant, but the process was "draining."
Mr. GILBOORD took some of his wife's stories to a script supervisor he knew at TVOntario. She showed them to Michael MacKLEM of Oberon Press in Ottawa. Ms. GIBSON's stories subsequently appeared in Oberon's annual Best Canadian Stories anthologies and in a solo collection, The Butterfly Ward, under her married name, Margaret Gibson GILBOORD. (She and Mr. GILBOORD, who now works for a call centre, divorced when their son was a toddler.)
Reviews were exultant. William FRENCH, then literary editor of The Globe and Mail, described her as a "writer of burning intensity and rare vision, an accomplished explorer of hidden caves of the mind." This debut shared the City of Toronto Book Award in 1977 with Margaret Atwood's Lady Oracle.
Meanwhile, Ms. GIBSON's story Making It (from The Butterfly Ward) about her Friendship with Craig RUSSELL was made into the low-budget film Outrageous. Starring Mr. RUSSELL as himself and Hollis McLAREN as Ms. GIBSON, it was the hit of the 1977 Toronto film festival.
Former Chatelaine editor Rona Maynard was a young writer at Flare magazine at the time. Intrigued by both Ms. GIBSON and The Butterfly Ward, she began writing a profile of the "hot" writer. "She had a deep Lauren Bacall voice, kohl-rimmed eyes, an air of world-weary glamour," smoked long black cigarettes in a holder and "had a burning passion for language unlike anything I have ever seen," said Ms. Maynard.
The two women became Friends, but when the profile was about to be published, Ms. GIBSON had her lawyer send a threatening letter to the magazine, and "so she dropped out of my life." At the time, Ms. GIBSON was also immersed in a bitter custody battle with her former husband. She turned some of that experience into Sweet Poison, a collection of stories published by Phyllis Bruce at HarperCollins. Another story was turned into the television movie, For the Love of Aaron.
Mr. GILBOORD provides a convincing anti-story to Ms. GIBSON's claims of abuse, saying that he and his father-in-law were in constant communication with each other and with child-welfare officials trying to protect Aaron and manage Ms. GIBSON's erratic behaviour.
"She tried the best she could to raise me," said Aaron GILBOORD, who is now 33 and living with his wife and three sons in Manitoba, where he works as a juvenile counsellor with young offenders. He left home when he was 16, but remained in touch with his mother and his father. Ms. GIBSON wrote a poem about her son, when he was 5, saying in part, "and to phone the doctor when I a.m. crazed and always you bring my pill bottles/offering them up with renewed hope each time." The poem appeared in Aurora: New Canadian Writing, edited by Morris Wolfe. By the late 1980s, Ms. GIBSON was living in a subsidized unit in a housing co-op. That's how she met her second husband, Juris RASA, an architectural draughtsman who was living in the same development. Apparently, she showed up at his door one day to ask for bandages because her fingers were bleeding from banging on the keys on her typewriter. Eventually, they moved in together and married. He helped her learn to use a computer and to make the transition from short stories to the longer form of the novel.
Her literary Friends, including the late Timothy Findlay and his partner, screenwriter William Whitehead, and journalist June Callwood helped her get grants to support her writing and introduced her to agent Dean Cooke, who agreed to represent her in the early 1990s. He believes that Mr. RASA made it possible for her to write Opium Dreams, the novel that Ellen Seligman published at McClelland and Stewart.
"I was always amazed by her stamina and staying power because I anticipated the editing of the book would be hard for her," said Ms. Seligman, who came to treasure their long conversations on the telephone. "I think writing sustained her, more so than any other form of nourishment."
The novel was a literary success, but Ms. GIBSON was sinking again into mental illness. She and Mr. RASA separated in the late 1990s after she repeatedly accused him of trying to murder her. He died about a year ago. Ms. Maynard had reconnected with Ms. GIBSON in the mid 1990s during one of her many episodes of instability and formed an unofficial support group with Mr. Cooke, Mr. Wolfe and Ms. Callwood. "She was getting farther and farther away from reality," said Ms. Maynard.
About four years ago, Ms. GIBSON was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. She was seeing an oncologist, but stopped chemotherapy, probably because she was afraid of the side effects of her complex combination of medications.
Margaret Louise GIBSON was born in Scarborough, Ontario, on June 4, 1948. She died of metastasized breast cancer in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on February 25, 2006. She was 57. She is survived by her son Aaron, his wife Jennifer LAMBERT, their sons Logan, Drew and Ayden, and her three sisters Dana, Lenore and Deirdre and their families.

LAMBERT, Violet Grace
By Kim HUGHES, Page A14
Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. Born July 26, 1910, in Toronto. Died September 3, 2005 of natural causes in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, aged 95.
The day my darling grandmother was buried was radiant and mild, the kind of sparkling September afternoon that mocks summer's heat and autumn's menace and then hangs there just a moment before thinning into memory.
My grandmother's life was a succession of simple but acknowledged joys: travels abroad and trips on the streetcar to shop for new shoes and lipstick at Simpson's downtown. Spontaneous at-home organ recitals. Meeting and marrying my grandfather and the eventual birth of her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She wished for death often near the end. That was her mantra: to go to sleep and never wake up. She was done with living, simply, unassailably done. She had seen what she needed to see and felt what she needed to feel and she was bored to tears at not being able to knit or bake or comprehend the television any more. Who could blame her really, except that such certainty is awful for others to bear. It leaves no room for self-pity.
Born the middle child of three in 1910, she grew up on Springhurst Avenue in Toronto's Parkdale, a neighbourhood as full of contradictions then as now. Her father and brother were intensely artistic, painting for pleasure and profit, yet my grandmother's passion was music. Music and her own poetry, which she added as greeting-card embellishments and dismissed as sentimental detritus (not that it was).
There were lowlights: moving away from her blood relatives to Kitchener as a lonely 19-year-old newlywed. The death of her husband to cancer many years later in 1978 and the sudden realization that her archaic rearing ensured she didn't even know how to pay a bill on her own. Romantic rebirth through a new companion that led to loneliness and heartbreak once again.
But damn, she was funny -- even when a scrim of sadness tucked in around her shoulders. Her self-deprecating tone never wavered and it was, I think, an outreach of her humility. She simply couldn't believe that a woman of middling education and status (though lovely looks) could inspire us so much. Yet she did, every day.
She captured us with tales of attending silent films. She howled remembering Fluffy the cat coming home after tomcatting through the streets, ears torn and coat matted. She remembered her senior citizen's club where she handmade tiny perfect stuffed kangaroos that sold at Christmas bazaars. She remembered washing my mouth out with soap as a child in a rare fit of pique after I sassed her. And she always remembered my grandfather. Even in the darkest days of his illness, he remained the love of her life.
This glorious woman who lived 95 years, rousing in me not just love but absolute devotion, would have appreciated the abundant ironies her funeral day held: the tears despite the sunshine my sadness over losing her versus her joy at finally transcending her feeble body.
A few weeks before my grandmother's death, I visited a Tarot card reader as I do from time to time when everyday things make so little sense that mysticism seems like a reasonable alternative. As always, I asked how my Nanny was really doing even though, until the very end, I could pretty much ask her myself and count on getting an honest answer.
Leanne, the psychic, consulted the cards: "She has 18 people waiting for her on the other side," she enthused.
If even one of those 18 loves her a fraction as much as I do, she's doing fine.
Kim HUGHES is Violet LAMBERT's granddaughter.

DOAN, Dorothy
By Michael A. MAZZA, Page A30
Nurse, sister, aunt, traveller, friend. Born July 18, 1915, Komoka, Ontario Died June 10, in Strathroy, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 91.
At 16, while still attending high school, Dorothy DOAN answered an ad in the London Free Press and interviewed to become a nurse in training. Through her dedication, Dorothy became a pioneer a female leader in an era when female leadership was not always appreciated, a role model for younger women and one of the most beloved members of the community.
Dorothy was born on a farm; the daughter of Alex and Isabelle DOAN, she was the second youngest of nine children. With love and gratitude, she recalls how her oldest sister came home to care for her and her siblings after their mother died when Dorothy was only 8.
Dorothy graduated as a registered nurse from Strathroy General Hospital in 1935. When war was declared in 1939, Dorothy enlisted and reported for duty in 1942, receiving several weeks training in England, before travelling to Cape Town, South Africa. The journey to Cape Town was a dangerous one; their vessel travelled in a convoy of ships moving only at night and negotiating their way through enemy-infested waters. She grimly remembers counting the surrounding ships at first light each day, missing those that had been destroyed by enemy submarines, and thanking God that their own ship had not been hit during the night.
Later in the war, Dorothy was transferred to Cairo where she worked in an operating room for 13 months. Gruelling work, but also opportunities to visit market bazaars, tour the pyramids and even try a camel ride.
"There was a job to do, and so we did it," was how Dorothy matter-of-factly recalled the dangers of nursing during the Second World War. It was this same approach Dorothy applied to her professional career.
After the war, she was hired as assistant superintendent at Strathroy. In the next few years, she completed a Nursing Service Administration degree at the University of Toronto and in 1956 became superintendent of Strathroy Hospital, continuing her education through correspondence.
Three years later, Dorothy completed her certification in hospital organizational management. She received membership in the American College of Hospital Administrators in 1963 -- at the time there was no comparable Canadian association -- and in 1969 she attained her fellowship with American College of Hospital Administrators, becoming one of the first women in Canada to do so.
In a time when women in positions of power were few, Dorothy was a leader in a health-care world dominated by men. She was a persuasive leader with a task-oriented perseverance. She built a hospital and 10 years later, doubled it in size, all the time overseeing the funding, construction and design -- areas that were all male-dominated. In a time before books on "managing change," Dorothy guided Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital through many changes in her 25 years there.
After retirement in 1981, Dorothy devoted herself to volunteering with the hospital, the United Church, the Salvation Army, the Canadian Cancer Society and in the Community Living kitchen.
Family was also important to Dorothy. She was Aunt Dot to her many nieces and nephews and her cottage on Lake Huron near Forest, Ontario, was a popular place for family to visit with her, recalls Yvonne LAMBERT, one of her nieces.
Among many honours, Dorothy DOAN was a lifetime member of the Registered Nurses of Ontario, and a Fellow in the American College of Hospital Administrators. In 1992, she was awarded the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada Medal.
Michael is a friend of Dorothy; he wrote this with Sarah Louise Davidson's help.
