Passed away Monday, April 10th, 2006 in his 82nd year at the Lion's head Hospital. Beloved husband of Helen (LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY) FORSTER for 60 years. He was the best Dad and husband and will be terribly missed by his whole family which includes his son Brian and Debbie FORSTER of Burlington, daughter Linda and Jim WYONCH of Colpoy's Bay, grandchildren, Cherry and Autumn, Brian and Cam FORSTER and his five great grandchildren. Ray worked in industrial sales for many years in the Hamilton area and he was a World War 2 veteran. He loved fishing and hunting and boating on Lake Huron and cared deeply for his family. A very special thank you to Dr. JANNESON, Doctor THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Doctor WONG. Also to the nurses, Nancy, Linda, Kim, Goldie and Christine for all your kindness, sensitivity and support during this difficult time. Also thanks to Ted and Phyllis HAYES and all the residents of Hayes Crescent Apartments for their caring compassion and support. In honour of Ray's request there will be no funeral services. But we leave you with this. When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom filled room Why cry for a soul set free. Miss me a little… but not too long And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared Miss me… but let me go. For this is a journey that we all must take And each must go alone. It's all part of the Master's plan A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart Go to the Friends we know And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds Miss me, but let me go.

GRAVES, Winnifred Lottie (née BLEWETT)
Formerly of Saint Thomas, after a prolonged illness that robbed her of communication, passed away at dawn on November 10, 2006, at the Sunnyside Home in Kitchener, Ontario, in her 85th year. She was the eldest daughter in the Elgin County farming family of the late William and Eva BLEWETT, and the beloved wife of city trainman and musician, the late W. Jack GRAVES of Saint Thomas. She was a nursing graduate of the Saint Thomas Memorial Hospital Class of 1944. Winnie enjoyed the love and admiration of her brothers and sisters and their families, as they celebrated their milestones with brunches in the London-Saint Thomas area. She will be missed by her sisters, Flossie (Ed, dec.) TRIMBLE, Marion (Bill) WHITE/WHYTE and Suzanne MILLIGAN, and her brothers, Jack (Eleanor) BLEWETT: Ted (Barbara) BLEWETT, and George (Joy, dec.) BLEWETT. Winnie's older brother Murray, died as a teenager. Her children, Mary Ann (Keith) LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Toronto; Judy Marie GRAVES (Terry STOREY), Edmonton and William Scott (Theresa Fitzgerald) GRAVES, Waterloo, are especially proud of her accomplishments - as a Victorian Order of Nurses professional; as a leader in the Order of the Eastern Star, Daughters of the Nile, and Lady Trainmen; and as a model of unwavering commitment to community service and education. But their sweetest memories of Mom are her quiet ways of making simple moments joyful- stove-top birthday cakes, silly racing games, music and dancing, camping trips and her unmistakable delight in her grandchildren, Sean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Toronto; Karah LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Newmarket; and Carmen and Cleo GRAVES, Waterloo. Don PARDEY will officiate at the funeral service on Saturday, November 18 at 1 p.m. at Williams Funeral Home, 45 Elgin Street, Saint Thomas.

LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Doctor Robert Neil
Dr. R. Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, noted consultant to the pool industry in Canada and the United States, passed suddenly Tuesday, March 28, 2006. The Newmarket, Ontario, resident had just returned home from a day-long session at a Toronto hotel teaching water chemistry to pool operators when he collapsed. He was 67. At the time of his death, Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was serving as principal-in-charge of Lowry and Associates, a nationwide distributor of specialty chemicals which has exclusive representation of Taylor Technologies' water-testing products in Canada; owner and chief educator for the Lowry School of Pool and Spa Chemistry; and a contributing writer and commentator for numerous trade publications, most notably Pool and Spa Marketing magazine. He was an active member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada and the only Canadian voting member of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals' Recreational Water Quality Committee whose water quality guidelines are followed by public pools and spas throughout North and South America. He also served as an advisor to the board of directors of the Professional Pool Operators of America. Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY's ability to make a complicated subject understandable for the average person was coupled with an enthusiasm for his subject matter that most people could not resist, and this made him a sought-after public speaker. Most recently he took part in a panel discussion on preventing recreational water illnesses at the 26th annual Canadian Pool and Spa Conference in Toronto. Said Richard HUBBARD, the Markham, Ontario-based publisher of Pool and Spa Marketing, 'Neil was one of the pool industry's finest and most respected educators, and one of its greatest Friends. He was passionately devoted to elevating the understanding of water chemistry among aquatic facility managers, public health inspectors, and pool builders, service companies, and pool supplies retailers. He always said, 'Over ninety percent of pool problems are caused by poor water chemistry.' Without him, the level of discourse in our industry will be diminished.' His influence on Canada's $1.2-billion-a-year pool and spa industry is pervasive. Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY contributed to the present regulations for public spas under the auspices of the Ontario Ministry of Health. He also designed the model labels for pool products regulated under the federal Pest Control Products Act. He was the original author of 'Pool and Spa Chemistry: A Testing and Treatment Guide,' widely regarded as the Bible of water quality management. Over the course of 26 years, thousands across Canada became certified pool water technicians by his pool school.
Robert Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was born in Windsor, Ontario, to Mac and Marjorie LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and was a loving big brother to David Kent LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and Lynda Jane PARKER. He earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the University of Western Ontario in nearby London; a doctorate in inorganic chemistry from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; and a master's in business administration from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. But Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was no ivory tower academic. He spent the early part of this career with three Canadian chemical companies: first in pool chemical sales at Kert Chemical Industries, Inc., then as pool chemical products manager at Swan Recreational Products Limited, and finally as technical services director for Mursatt Chemicals Limited. He established Lowry and Associates in 1985 with his wife Gabriele as his business partner. Lowry and Associates became the master distributor for Taylor Technologies in Canada in 1989, but the two firms' relationship goes back even further. 'Neil and I worked together for 26 years,' said a saddened Paul WOODEN, president of Taylor. 'He was more than a trusted business associate. He was a good friend to me, and to many others at Taylor. He was an incredibly smart man and so funny! We loved spending time with Neil at the end of a long day at a trade show; he kept us in stitches with his jokes and parlor tricks. His sudden passing has left us all numb with grief.' One of his Friends at Taylor was marketing Vice-President Patricia FITZGERALD. 'Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY had a fierce intellect and a blunt manner of speaking that took some getting used to. He was an avid reader, a student of history, and always up on current events. In a debate of any kind he took no prisoners. But if he had the roar of a lion, he also had the heart,' FITZGERALD reminisced. 'I will miss him greatly.' He met Gabriele ADELMANN in Boston, Masssachusetts, and the pair married shortly thereafter in July 1972. While growing their business together they also grew a family, producing sons Michael and Derek, now ages 30 and 28 respectively, and daughter Sarah, age 17. He was a devoted husband and father. When Mackenzie, 3, Andrew, 18 months, and Erik, 1 month, were born to Michael and his wife Jennifer, the grandchildren became his pride and joy. Derek LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and his spouse Sheila STARRETT are both involved in running Lowry and Associates; Michael LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY too is following in his father's footsteps by being a part of the industry. 'We all have not only lost a loving husband, father and grandfather we have also lost our very best friend.' A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 3rd, at the Old Mill Inn, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto, in the Brule A Room on the first floor (416-236-2641). All Friends and colleagues are welcome. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the First Church of Christ Scientist, Etobicoke, where Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was a member. Arrangements entrusted to the Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, Newmarket, (905-895-6631), www.roadhouseandrose.com.

Jean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Nurse And Union Organizer (1931-2006)
In 1957, the year she completed training, Ontario nurses were overworked, underpaid, undervalued and expected to stand when a doctor entered the room. She decided to do something about it
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Asked about working conditions for nurses in Ontario in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Anita ABDULLAH chuckles in that exasperated way. "We were indentured servants," sighs the London, Ontario, nurse, who began working in 1970. "Little more than glorified slaves." In 1973, newly minted registered nurses earned $7,736 a year. No health benefits. No occupational safety provisions. No notice or severance required for layoffs. Overtime of 30 minutes or less a day was unpaid -- and it added up.
And is it true that a nurse who happened to be sitting was obliged to stand when a doctor entered the room? Mrs. ABDULLAH doesn't pause. "You're darn right. If you didn't, you were disciplined."
Nurses were overworked, underpaid, and undervalued. So, Mrs. ABDULLAH's friend and colleague, Jean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, set out to change that -- but not before she duly noted that the plight of nurses was not completely the fault of management.
"I was concerned about the apathy of nurses at the time with respect to working conditions," Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY observed a few years ago. "The nurses complained constantly over coffee and lunch but didn't feel comfortable complaining to a higher authority. They worried about losing their jobs. They didn't have the nerve to take action. The question for me was, what could be done to help the situation."
Fortunately for nurses in Ontario, Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY had nerve to spare. On October 13, 1973, in a landmark meeting in Toronto, more than 300 representatives of 85 independent nurses' organizations from across the province joined forces to form the Ontario Nurses' Association, with Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY installed as founding president.
Just nine months later, after a brief but noisy labour dispute, the Ontario Nurses' Association reached an 18-month agreement with Queen's Park covering 10,000 registered nurses in 41 hospitals, boosting starting salaries to $10,200 annually and maximum salaries by a healthy 50 per cent.
Eventually, the union would bring together 104 separate nurses' associations.
It was while working as a nurse herself that Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY realized many of her colleagues were unhappy with their hours, shift work, low pay and lack of prestige. "When attempts to work with management to set standards failed, she and others decided that collective bargaining was the answer," related Ontario Nurses' Association chief executive officer Lesley BELL. " Thousands of registered nurses have benefited from her efforts since."
Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY served two, one-year terms as president of the Ontario Nurses' Association, today a powerful union representing more than 51,000 registered nurses and allied health professionals in hospitals, community health, long-term care, Canadian Blood Services, clinics and industry. For 16 years, she worked at several staff positions at the association, retiring in 1991 as an honorary member.
For a time, she was also director and acting chair of the Ontario Health Coalition.
Over the past 30 years, the Ontario Nurses' Association has spearheaded great strides for nurses in pay, layoff provisions, overtime, parental leave and recognition of previous experience, to name a few areas.
Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY would note with satisfaction the changes brought about over the years, not only in the strength and power of the nursing collective, but in how nurses regard themselves. "Today, nurses don't hesitate to go up to the mike and speak their peace," she said recently. "Nurses are now much better educated and know how to achieve a particular goal, whether it concerns working conditions or any other issue."
The eldest of six children born to farmers in the Caledon region outside Toronto during the Depression, she was among 14 psychiatric nursing graduates of the Ontario Hospital in Whitby in 1951, finishing her studies on time despite a broken hip suffered in a car accident. Six years later, she received her certification in public health from the University of Toronto.
It was while nursing in the community-health sector that she joined a committee formed to hear complaints about working conditions. In the early 1960s, Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY went to work for the Etobicoke Health Department at a time when nurses in Peel and Halton counties were beginning to form their own associations and gain certification for the purpose of collective bargaining, which proved useful when they did not get anticipated raises.
Given the low wages and status the job was saddled with in her day, why did people -- women, back then -- enter the profession at all?
"The prestige came from the satisfaction we got from making our patients feel better," offers Mrs. ABDULLAH. " Adjusting a pillow, washing somebody's face, cleaning their teeth, rubbing their back, sitting and holding their hand, listening to them cry in pain and trying to soothe them -- that's what made it all worthwhile."
So didn't Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and other nurses who entered the labour end of things, locking horns with adversaries, miss that compassion?
"While you missed that gratification of being at a bedside, how you rationalized [that] was you hoped that through your skills and your activism, you were able to make a bigger contribution to your profession," said Mrs. ABDULLAH, who worked alongside Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY at the Ontario Nurses' Association for a decade.
Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY's accomplishments were acknowledged in Ontario's legislature earlier this month. George Smitherman, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, no stranger to the fortunes of nurses in the province, said the profession today "can proudly claim to be respected, strong and united. [Nurses] are, as they have always been, the heart and soul of health care. Today, they are recognized as such, which is something that they have not always been. Thousands of nurses have benefited from the efforts made and the example set by Jean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY. As a result of that, hundreds and thousands of patients have as well."
Another dimension to Jean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was her love of playing nickel slots at casinos. "In the last few years, she played just from her winnings," Mrs. ABDULLAH smiles.
Lamentably, for a nurse, it was a long-time smoking habit that resulted in the lung cancer that finally claimed her. "She said to me a couple of weeks ago, 'Ironic isn't it'? recalled Mrs. ABDULLAH. " 'All the years I was a public-health nurse advising people to quit smoking…' "
Jean Marilyn LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was born in the Caledon region of Ontario on September 23, 1931, and died in Toronto on April 3, 2006, of lung cancer. She was 75. She leaves her long-time partner, Fred Barthel, daughter Marylin Bailey and son Paul LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Gladys Caroline
By Keith LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and Rob LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Page A20
Wife, grandmother, certified grapho-analyst. Born on November 28, 1915, in Penzance, Saskatchewan. Died on December 23 in Toronto, of Alzheimer's disease, aged 90.
Like a Norse hero, Gladys overcame adversity throughout her life with will, wit and courage. Her determination to survive difficult times and to share the warmth of her kitchen and weave it all into a compelling story became hallmarks of her life.
The early years were not easy for Gladys, the surviving child of Norwegian immigrants Arne and Borghilde (BERTHA) EIKRE. Widowed early, Bertha moved in 1923 from Saskatchewan to Toronto, where she took jobs in several households. Bertha's diamond ring went in and out of hock to balance the razor-thin cash flows.
When the founder of Regal Stationery visited Toronto's Eastern Commerce school to recruit a secretary, 16-year-old Gladys was eager to be his first employee; a full-time job in 1932 was more valuable than waiting for graduation. Within months, she assumed all the administrative duties and soon supervised other employees. Today, she would have been on the fast track to senior management but times were different then.
In 1934, Gladys accepted a blind date with "the most handsome man I had ever seen." William James LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was a farm boy from Rodney, Ontario, recently let go from Ontario Hydro because scarce Depression-era jobs were reserved for married men with dependants. Two years later, she married Bill and they moved to the family farm, a challenging transition for a Toronto girl. But she earned acceptance and respect from Bill's mother. The couple later settled in Saint Thomas, Ontario, when Bill found employment with the post office (and later became postmaster).
Throughout the Second World War, their Regent Street home was never locked, so that young pilots and aircrew training at nearby airfields could come and go as they needed. Many returned in the '50s and '60s to thank Aunt Gladys and Father William.
Although their first child, Carol, died as an infant, Gladys found strength, and raised sons Keith and Robert. She also found time to lead the girls' club at the church and coach baseball. On special occasions, Gladys would pen several lines of doggerel tailored to a person, gift or date.
Through home study, both Gladys and Bill became grapho-analysts, able to diagnose character and personality traits from handwriting. Gladys gave presentations to community groups and at international conferences. Her skills served local employers selecting staff, lawyers working with clients, and police investigating crimes. She also analyzed notes from girlfriends, teachers and supervisors to provide her sons with clandestine insight into the characters of these people.
After Bill retired, they rediscovered square dancing, and travelled to jamborees across Canada. They were good neighbours to everyone, proud of their sons' academic, career and family achievements, and adored their four grandchildren -- but they never met their two great-grandchildren.
Bill's first heart attack in 1978 was followed by several more, draining his strength and confidence. Gladys was always there to care for her love with never a shortage of conversation. After Dad died in 1991, we discovered that Mom's dementia had been masked by daily routine. Moving her out of our family home was very emotional, and soon led to retirement homes in Toronto.
After 14 years apart, Mom and Dad were back together for Christmas and their 70th wedding anniversary. Undoubtedly, they had lots to talk about.
Keith and Rob are Gladys's sons.

O'NEILL, Mary (née McARTHUR)
On September 21, 2006 after a long well lived life in her 95th year. Predeceased by her beloved husband Jim. Left to cherish countless memories are daughters Sharon O'NEILL and Kathleen (Mark LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY.) Devoted grandchildren Shannon BISSET (Anthony CAVALLIN,) Megan McLENAGHAN (Luke McLENAGHAN,) McArthur and Julie LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, and great-grandchildren Cael and Ella BISSET- CAVALLIN. One of four sisters, Mary is survived by Margaret CAMPBELL and Helen KURTZ and predeceased by Kay SMYTH. As the wife of an exploration geologist, Mary raised her daughters in Copper Cliff where she was active in the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, United Church Women's Assoc., the School Board and her many bridge groups. During their retirement Mary and Jim enjoyed travelling and especially their cottage at the French River. As a Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother she provided a wonderful example of a positive outlook with love and laughter. We will miss your sense of humour and smile. As Mom wished, cremation has taken place and her life celebrated by her immediate family. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, October 10, 2006 -- 4: 00 p.m. at the Copper Cliff United Church. In Mom's memory, family and Friends may make a donation to a charity of their choice.

GRAVES, Winnifred Lottie (née BLEWITT)
Formerly of Saint Thomas, after a prolonged illness that robbed her of communication, passed away at dawn on November 10, 2006, at the Sunnyside Home in Kitchener, Ontario, in her 85th year. She was the eldest daughter in the Elgin County farming family of the late William and Eva BLEWITT, and the beloved wife of city trainman and musician, the late W. Jack GRAVES of Saint Thomas. She was a nursing graduate of the Saint Thomas Memorial Hospital Class of 1944. Winnie enjoyed the love and admiration of her brothers and sisters and their families, as they celebrated their milestones with brunches in the London - Saint Thomas area. She will be missed by her sisters Flossie (Ed, deceased) TRIMBLE, Marion (Bill) WHITE/WHYTE and Suzanne MILLIGAN, and her brothers, Jack (Eleanor) BLEWITT: Ted (Barbara) BLEWITT, and George (Joy, deceased) BLEWITT. Winnie's older brother Murray died as a teenager. Her children, Mary Ann (Keith) LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Toronto; Judy Marie GRAVES, Edmonton and William Scott (Theresa FITZGERALD) GRAVES, Waterloo, are especially proud of her accomplishments - as a Victorian Order of Nurses professional; as a leader in the Order of the Eastern Star, Daughters of the Nile, and Lady Trainmen; and as a model of unwavering commitment to community service and education. But their sweetest memories of Mom are her quiet ways of making simple moments joyful - stove-top birthday cakes, silly racing games, music and dancing, camping trips and her unmistakable delight in her grandchildren, Sean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Toronto; Karah LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Newmarket; and Carmen and Cleo GRAVES, Waterloo. Don PARDEY will officiate at the funeral service on Saturday, November 18 at 1 p.m. at Williams Funeral Home, 45 Elgin Street, Saint Thomas. Afterward, family and Friends will be welcomed at a reception at the Community of Christ Church at 105 Fairview Avenue. Visitation will take place at Williams Funeral Home on Thursday, November 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. and on Friday, November 17 from 2 to 5 and from 6: 30 to 9 p.m. At 6:45 p.m. on Friday evening the Daughters of the Nile will hold a brief service, followed by the Order of the Eastern Star service at 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, Winnie requested donations to the Shriners Hospitals for Children, the Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Diabetes Association.

LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Doctor R. Neil
Noted consultant to the pool industry in Canada and the United States, passed suddenly Tuesday, March 28, 2006. The Newmarket, Ontario resident had just returned home from a day long session at a Toronto hotel teaching water chemistry to pool operators when he collapsed. He was 67. At the time of his death, Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was serving as principal-in-charge of Lowry and Associates, a nationwide distributor of specialty chemicals which has exclusive representation of Taylor Technologies' water-testing products in Canada; owner and chief educator for the Lowry School of Pool and Spa Chemistry and a contributing writer and commentator for numerous trade publications, most notably Pool and Spa Marketing magazine. He was an active member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada and the only Canadian voting member of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals' Recreational Water Quality Committee whose water quality guidelines are followed by public pools and spas throughout North and South America. He also served as an advisor to the board of directors of the Professional Pool Operators of America. Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY's ability to make a complicated subject understandable for the average person was coupled with an enthusiasm for his subject matter that most people could not resist, and this made him a sought-after public speaker. Most recently he took part in a panel discussion on preventing recreational water illnesses at the 26th annual Canadian Pool and Spa Conference in Toronto. Said Richard HUBBARD, the Markham, Ontario-based publisher of Pool and Spa Marketing, "Neil was one of the pool industry's finest and most respected educators, and one of its greatest Friends. He was passionately devoted to elevating the understanding of water chemistry among aquatic facility managers, public health inspectors, and pool builders, service companies, and pool supplies retailers. He always said, 'Over ninety percent of pool problems are caused by poor water chemistry.' Without him, the level of discourse in our industry will be diminished." His influence on Canada's $1.2-billion-a-year pool and spa industry is pervasive. Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY contributed to the present regulations for public spas under the auspices of the Ontario Ministry of Health. He also designed the model labels for pool products regulated under the federal Pest Control Products Act. He was the original author of "Pool and Spa Chemistry: A Testing and Treatment Guide," widely regarded as the Bible of water quality management. Over the course of 26 years, thousands across Canada became certified pool water technicians by his pool school. Robert Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was born in Windsor, Ontario, to Mac and Marjorie LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and was a loving big brother to David Kent LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and Lynda Jane PARKER. He earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the University of Western Ontario in nearby London; a doctorate in inorganic chemistry from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; and a master's in business administration from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. But Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was no ivory tower academic. He spent the early part of this career with three Canadian chemical companies: first in pool chemical sales at Kert Chemical Industries, Inc., then as pool chemical products manager at Swan Recreational Products Limited, and finally as technical services director for Mursatt Chemicals Limited. He established Lowry and Associates in 1985 with his wife Gabriele as his business partner. Lowry and Associates became the master distributor for Taylor Technologies in Canada in 1989, but the two firms' relationship goes back even further. "Neil and I worked together for 26 years," said a saddened Paul WOODEN, president of Taylor. "He was more than a trusted business associate. He was a good friend to me, and to many others at Taylor. He was an incredibly smart man and so funny! We loved spending time with Neil at the end of a long day at a trade show; he kept us in stitches with his jokes and parlor tricks. His sudden passing has left us all numb with grief." One of his Friends at Taylor was marketing Vice-President Patricia FITZGERALD. " Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY had a fierce intellect and a blunt manner of speaking that took some getting used to. He was an avid reader, a student of history, and always up on current events. In a debate of any kind he took no prisoners. But if he had the roar of a lion, he also had the heart," FITZGERALD reminisced. "I will miss him greatly." He met Gabriele ADELMANN in Boston, Masssachusetts, and the pair married shortly thereafter in July 1972. While growing their business together they also grew a family, producing sons Michael and Derek, now ages 30 and 28 respectively, and daughter Sarah, age 17. He was a devoted husband and father. When Mackenzie, 3, Andrew, 18 months, and Erik, 1 month, were born to Michael and his wife Jennifer, the grandchildren became his pride and joy. Derek LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and his spouse Sheila STARRETT are both involved in running Lowry and Associates; Michael LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY too is following in his father's footsteps by being a part of the industry. "We all have not only lost a loving husband, father and grandfather we have also lost our very best friend." A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 3rd, at the Old Mill Inn, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto, in the Brule A Room on the first floor (416-236-2641). All Friends and colleagues are welcome. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the First Church of Christ Scientist, Etobicoke, where Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was a member. Arrangements entrusted to the Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, Newmarket, (905-895-6631) www.roadhouseandrose.com

LOWTHIAN, Bill
In loving memory of our dear Bill. Beloved husband, father, son, brother and best friend, who passed away June 12th, 2005.
Some say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I feel,
For no one knows the heartache,
Behind the smiles I hide,
No one knows how many times,
I have broken down and cried,
I want to tell you something,
So there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to live without.
Love you always, Cathy, Erica and Jason, Kyle and Sarah, Mom and Gayle.
We miss you so much!
