PLUMB, Arthur " Art" George
Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 28, 2006 in the Veterans' Wing (K-Wing) of Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre at the age of 87. Art served as a Lieutenant with the Lincoln and Welland Regiment and saw duty in Holland and Germany. Member of The Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 10. Life Member of the Canadian Professional Sales Association. Member of the Army, Navy and Air Force Association. Art is survived by his wife Wendy, their daughter Jane (Lindsay PEARLMAN) and grandchildren Hannah and Jonah. Also survived by his children -- Sandra (Peter CROOK) grandchildren Doug, Geoffrey and Susan (Doug); Nancy (Vic PFEIFFER) -- grandchildren Ryan (Debbie,) Jarrett (Daniella,) Angela, Tyler (Monique); Ron (Risa), and great grandchildren Alexander, Adrianne, Raymond and Micha. Art spent the last 19 years of his life as a resident of K-Wing. His greatest ambition was to 'perpetuate the veteran identity'. As President of The Veterans' and Community Residents' Council for a total of 10 years, he brought about many changes that improved the lives of his fellow comrades -- especially 'Bullet' (the bus he was told would never materialize). He was an original member of the Veterans' Advisory Committee to the Board of Directors of Sunnybrook and Women's. Art received the Canada 125 Medal and the Queen's Jubilee Medal for his contributions to the veteran community at Sunnybrook. Art was a fountain of information about K-Wing and Sunnybrook. When someone had a question or problem, they were usually advised to 'Ask Art Plumb'. He loved to paint -- both watercolours and silk scarves. Many thanks to Lorrie CLARKE and Sue WATSON for their guidance in these endeavours which brought him much pleasure. Art received excellent care on unit K2 East under the management of Suzanne PLOWMAN. The family is so grateful for all that was done to keep him comfortable during difficult times. His nurses were his 'angels' -- especially Delores. Thanks also to Dr. Sheldon TURNER. Visitation at R.S. Kane Funeral Home, 6150 Yonge Street (south of Steeles), on Thursday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A funeral service will be held in the Sunnybrook Chapel (E-Wing) on Friday March 3rd at 10: 00 a.m. Interment in the Veterans' section B of York Cemetry, Senlac Road (Yonge and Sheppard Avenue area), North York.

PEARN, Patricia Louise (née BETTERS)
Our sweet Pat passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, 21 October, 2006, early in the morning, in Toronto. Daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, wife, sister-in-law, god mother, mother, mother-in-law, fairy god aunty, lover of children, committed volunteer, trail blazing banker, and a dear and loyal friend to many, near and far. Always a prairie girl at heart, Pat loved nature, the harvest season, the wind and the sky. She was well read, well travelled, well informed and no matter what, always well turned out. An inveterate baker, adventuresome cook, imaginative gardener and gracious host, Pat's creations were readily shared and continuously anticipated, even if it meant having to play a board game or two before or after enjoying! A quick and bright mind, sharp wit, vast vocabulary, wonderful sense of humour, playfulness, competitive but fair play nature, leadership and management capabilities, kindness, generosity, energy and determined spirit served her well both personally and professionally. Our hearts are broken and her physical absence leaves a huge void but we are comforted in knowing she remained independent and self-determining to the end. In keeping with Pat's wishes, a graveside service and interment have been held and we are gratefully declining all things floral in favour of tribute contributions, should you be so inclined, to: Sunnybrook Hospital Foundation in aid of Geriatric Day Hospital 2075 Bayview Avenue, Room H332, Toronto, Ontario M4N 3M5 Sincere thanks to neighbours, Friends and professionals, who have supported, cared for and encouraged Pat, particularly in the last few years. She deserved more time but we know she's off to see her beloved Spence. Godspeed Mom.

"He was a very stylish writer, with a marvellous eye for details," his former colleague Charles KING told Canadian Press last week. Describing Mr. YOUNG as "a down-to-earth intellectual" who "wasn't taken in by puffery or power," Mr. KING said he was "a man of absolute integrity."
Christopher Moody YOUNG was the only son and eldest of three children of Norman YOUNG, a Rhodes scholar and teacher, and Grace MOODY of Winnipeg. His parents married in Winnipeg in 1925 in a double wedding with Ms. MOODY's older sister Maryon and a young Ontario academic and future prime minister named Lester PEARSON. Ms. MOODY's mother took her maternal duties very seriously when it came to finding husbands for her daughters, believing that a younger child could not marry until the older one was suitably settled.
After happily resolving the marital protocol issues, Mr. YOUNG and his bride went out to Ghana in West Africa, in what was then a British colony called the Gold Coast, to teach in a native school that had been founded by Sir Frederick Guggisberg, a Canadian-born mining engineer and one-time governor of the colony. Ms. YOUNG defied the custom of the time, which determined that white women went back to England to have their babies, and insisted that her son be born in Accra.
The family returned to Winnipeg when Christopher was 3, and his father became the founding headmaster at Ravencourt's School (now Saint_John's Ravenscourt) in 1929. When the Second World War broke out, Christopher's father enlisted in the armed forces and was killed in the Allied raid on Dieppe in August, 1942. Christopher was 16 and the only male in a family of four.
After graduating from Saint_John's Ravenscourt in 1943, Christopher YOUNG went to the University of Manitoba, graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in 1947 and winning a scholarship to Balliol College, Oxford. That same year he married his first wife, Florence, the daughter of John and Ruby SIRITT. By then, journalism was already in his blood. As an undergraduate, he had worked summers at the now defunct Winnipeg Tribune and he joined the paper full-time in 1949, after he had come down from Oxford with a master's degree.
He worked at the Trib for six years, the last two as news editor. In 1955, the YOUNGs moved to Hamilton after he accepted at job at the Hamilton Spectator as news editor. He was promoted to executive news editor in 1957 and moved to the Southam news service two years later, where he worked as the Ottawa bureau chief from 1960 to 1961.
The following year, he was appointed editor of the Ottawa Citizen, the Southam chain's flagship paper, a post he held for 14 years. As an editor, Mr. YOUNG continued to write elegant and thoughtful columns and articles on local, national and world events. He won a Bowater Award in 1961 for a series on unemployment. These were years of sadness as well as accomplishment. His first wife died in 1966, after a long illness, leaving him a widower with three daughters to raise. He married Ann COFFIN, a theatre officer at the Canada Council, the following year. Together they had a daughter, Rachel.
In 1975, Mr. YOUNG became general manager of Southam News, a position he held until 1981. After more than 15 years in management, Mr. YOUNG wanted a new challenge and, on the cusp of 50, he sent himself into the field as a foreign correspondent. He was London bureau chief for Southam News from 1981 to 1984, (winning a National Newspaper Award in 1982 for his reporting on the massacre at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Lebanon) and then did a two-year stint as national political columnist back in Ottawa before heading up the Moscow bureau from 1987 to 1989. He won another National Newspaper Award for a series on Mongolia in 1988 and a Citation of Merit in 1989 for stories about pollution in the former Soviet Union.
In 1996, Conrad BLACK bought the Southam chain of newspapers. He and Mr. YOUNG did not share the same editorial viewpoint, especially about Israel and about the way Mr. BLACK's Hollinger corporation was running The Jerusalem Post.
"Chris was old school," Toronto Star columnist Jim TRAVERS told Canadian Press last week. "He believed newspapers had to be edgy and aggressive, but he also thought they had to contribute to a public understanding of public affairs.
"He saw journalism as a public service and feared that under Conrad BLACK it was being reduced all to business."
The Southam papers subsequently stopped running the column that Mr. YOUNG had been writing after his retirement.
Normally an articulate man, for whom verbal and written fluency were skills he took for granted, he began having trouble expressing himself in the mid-1990s. His mother had died of Alzheimer's when she was 92, so many of the symptoms were tragically familiar. After a year of waiting lists and tests, his fears were confirmed with a diagnosis in December, 1998. He was 72.
Bravely, he decided to write about his illness and how it affected his life in an article for Maclean's magazine entitled Descent into Alzheimer's. After a career of reporting on events, he turned his journalistic skills on himself and wrote candidly, with considerable assistance from his wife Ann, about the scourge that affects one in 10 adults over 65.
"People like me don't look funny, babble, cry out or make unseemly noises in public," he wrote, describing a recent holiday he had taken with his wife to California, where he had gotten lost on a tour of Alcatraz prison in San Francisco Bay. "Misjudging the situation, I took a boat returning to Fisherman's Wharf and then walked for hilly blocks until I realized I was lost, and that the best bet was to retrace my steps."
Somehow he made his way back to the wharf, but he "chose the wrong ferry dock and the wrong people to ask for help." Finally a sensitive woman heard him say "Alcatraz" and took him to the correct dock where he found his distraught wife. "The efforts of all the National Park Service rangers who now man the prison had not turned me up, so I became the first man to escape from Alcatraz and survive," he reported with his characteristic wit.
The article, which was the cover story on March 13, 2000, generated a huge response -- bigger than any story he had written in 42 years as a professional journalist. So, with even more help from his wife, he wrote a follow-up story on an Alzheimer's Society site, talking about his life and some of his fellow sufferers and paying tribute to the Friends, family and former colleagues who shared his company, wise in the knowledge that the disease, however devastating, is not "contagious."
Christopher Moody YOUNG was born in Accra, the Gold Coast (now Ghana) on July 9, 1926. He died in Ottawa of complications from Alzheimer's disease on March 21, 2006. He was 79. He was predeceased by his first wife, Florence Sirrett, and his eldest daughter, Alix. He is survived by his second wife, Ann, his daughters Sheila, Judy and Rachel, five grandchildren and his three younger sisters.

Mary MacDONALD, Civil Servant (1918-2006)
For decades, she guarded the gates of power in the Prime Minister's Office, first as an 'indispensable' executive secretary to Lester PEARSON and then to Pierre TRUDEAU
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S11
Ottawa -- In 1967, Prime Minister Lester PEARSON needed to find a birthday gift for his executive assistant, and it had to be special. Mary MacDONALD had been with him 20 years and, as he admitted handsomely in his autobiography, "[she was] indispensable as my Girl Friday. Nobody ever served anyone with greater devotion."
So, what to give Miss MacDONALD for her 49th birthday on April 30, 1967? In the end, he settled on the perfect gift: the Bible presented to him by Prime Minister Mackenzie KING on September 10, 1948, when Mr. PEARSON was sworn as a member of the King's Privy Council for Canada. At the same time, Mr. PEARSON, arguably Canada's most famous diplomat, was appointed secretary of state for External Affairs, and the Bible had become a treasured family memento.
On the flyleaf, Mr. PEARSON wrote a warm and heartfelt message: "To Mary, with all of my best wishes and grateful appreciation for helping a P.C. become a p.m. … L. B. PEARSON." The Bible is now held in trust by Mr. PEARSON's grand_son, Michael, for his infant son.
Miss MacDONALD first joined Mr. PEARSON in 1947 at the then-Department of External Affairs. They had made a terrific team together, travelling the world when he was minister of External Affairs and then the country after he became leader of the Liberal Party of Canada in 1958.
As one of the gatekeepers to Mr. PEARSON, Miss MacDONALD did not suffer fools gladly. "My father owed his success in part, to her," said retired diplomat Geoffrey PEARSON at her funeral last week. "Success in politics, as in life, is often due to those who stand at the door."
Miss MacDONALD's working day always extended past 5 p.m., for 10 or 12 hours overall. She once wrote 91 letters in one day. Politics was her life, to the exclusion of everything else including marriage, except her family. Weekends were no different. If Mr. PEARSON and his wife Maryon needed her, Miss MacDONALD would be there.
"She really knew who was useful and kept him in touch with his constituents and vice-versa. She was a great organizer," said retired senator Landon PEARSON.
Mary MacDONALD grew up in Ottawa during the Depression. After graduating from the University of Ottawa in 1938, she spent five years with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. In 1941, she joined the Canadian Red Cross Corps, shipping out to Britain two years later. A month after D-Day, June 6, 1944, she was sent to No. 12 Canadian General Hospital as a welfare officer. Since there was a shortage of nurses, her organizational skills were used to regulate the efficient flow of patients from the wards to the operating theatres.
Janet FLANDERS of Ottawa first met Miss MacDONALD in 1943, in a battered London at war. "She was bright and cheerful… She could do anything."
After returning to Ottawa in December of 1945, Miss MacDONALD joined the Department of External Affairs. Soon after, she was assigned to the new undersecretary of external affairs, just back from Washington as Canadian ambassador. Lester "Mike" PEARSON was a rising star and it took very little time for them to develop a working relationship, although she never called him anything other than "Mr. PEARSON."
For the next 12 years, Miss MacDONALD received an education in foreign affairs, as her boss helped Prime Minister Louis SAINT_LAURENT make Canada an important player on the world stage. It was the beginning of the Cold War and Canada's foreign policy included giving strong support to her allies in North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the United Nations. She also obtained a master's degree in political science in 1948, but paused in her own advancement to help old Friends, one of whom was Janet FLANDERS. " After the war, she got me a job in External in 1947&hellip We were close Friends for 60 years. You don't come across people of her calibre very often."
Another of her Friends was Aline CHRÉTIEN, wife of former prime minister Jean CHRÉTIEN. They had met in 1963 after Mr. CHRÉTIEN was first elected to the House of Commons. "We saw her all the time. She was devoted to her boss, Mr. PEARSON, her Friends and family," said Mrs. CHRÉTIEN. " She was like a mother to all sorts of people… Jean and I loved her."
During Mr. PEARSON's 20 years in federal politics, Miss MacDONALD played a part in getting him elected eight times in his riding of Algoma East, in Northern Ontario. He was fortunate to have Miss MacDONALD as his riding secretary, he once wrote. She was a "very friendly, outgoing person who enjoyed meeting new people. She became the bulwark of my political life and soon knew everyone in the constituency, to my great advantage."
In fact, Time magazine said the only person who could ever dethrone Mr. PEARSON in Algoma East was Miss MacDONALD. After Mr. PEARSON was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo in 1957 for helping secure peace in the 1956 Suez Crisis, he found himself out of office when John Diefenbaker's Conservatives won the next election. An exhausted Louis SSAINTURENT resigned as Liberal chief and Miss MacDONALD became the executive assistant to the new leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition. Five long years in opposition followed, until Mr. PEARSON beat Mr. Diefenbaker and became the 14th prime minister of Canada on April 22, 1963.
A devoted Liberal, she also served Mr. PEARSON's successor. When Pierre Elliott TRUDEAU took over as Prime Minister on April 20, 1968, he was advised that continuity in the Prime Minister's Office was important and that Miss MacDONALD could provide it. After all, she knew everyone in Ottawa.
For the next 11 years, she was Mr. TRUDEAU's administrative and constituency liaison officer, ruling a staff of 15 secretaries with tact and humour. Isabel METCALFE of Ottawa was one of them. "She was marvellous to us. She encouraged us, gave us advice she was fun. She was meticulous in upholding the standards of the Prime Minister's Office. She was an inspiration to us in the context of political activism."
It was the role in which she probably felt most comfortable and most effective. In 1968, rumours swirled around Parliament Hill that Mr. PEARSON was thinking about appointing her to the Senate. For reasons that may never be fully known, it didn't happened. Instead, former Liberal cabinet minister Paul Martin, Sr., got the call.
Landon PEARSON, who was Lester PEARSON's daughter-in-law, believes Miss MacDONALD "would have made an excellent senator. She had excellent political instincts and knew politics. She was a great organizer. In my view, she was never adequately recognized by the men."
In 1979, Miss MacDONALD retired and the following year she was content to receive the Order of Canada. From her point of view, it was probably more than enough. After sitting at the right hands of Lester PEARSON and Pierre TRUDEAU, she had seen it all.
"Behind every great man is a surprised woman, my mother used to say," said Geoffrey PEARSON. " Mary was never surprised."
Mary Elizabeth MacDONALD was born on April 30, 1918, in North Cobalt, Ontario She died of a stroke on June 5 in Ottawa. She was 88. She leaves her sister Kay, her nephews Peter, Joe, Paul, John and Greg. She was predeceased by her brother Neil.

ANDERSON, Paul Chenery
(Major, Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, retired)
Passed away gently in the arms of his children on October 7, 2006. Born in Toronto on May 16, 1916, the eldest son of Oscar Victor ANDERSON and Isabella St. Clair CHENERY, Paul had 90 years of life, and leaves a fine and enduring legacy of accomplishment to his family, and to Canada. The brother of the late Isabella CONWAY of Guelph, Frances PEARSON of Vancouver, and Doctor David ANDERSON of Maple, he was an outstanding student, athlete, soldier, professional engineer, husband, father and grandfather. The valedictorian on graduation from Humberside Collegiate Institute, he was also a starting guard on the Humberside senior basketball team which won the Dominion of Canada Championship in 1934. He was a leading figure at the University of Toronto, where he was President of the Engineering Society of the School of Practical Science in 1939. Graduating with an engineering degree, he worked at Ferranti, a major United Kingdom electrical and electronics equipment firm. He married the late Phyllis Irene HANNAFORD of Toronto at High Park United Church in early 1941, to share their love of dancing for life. The honeymoon was interrupted as he had volunteered for duty with the Canadian Army. He sailed overseas to the United Kingdom, where he eventually took part in the Normandy Invasion, serving with honour, in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and finally Germany. After Victory in Europe and in Japan were secured, he returned to Canada and, retired from the military, worked for Canada Electric, the consulting firm MacGregor-Anderson which he co-founded, and later with the Toronto Board of Education. He was married to his beloved Phyllis for 60 years, and was the devoted father of William Victor ANDERSON, Carole Chenery JEROME, both of Toronto, and Bruce Edward ANDERSON of Laguna Niguel, California. He was a wonderful father-in-law to Lise ANDERSON and Christina ANDERSON, and a loving grandfather to Anne-Marie, Lindsey, Thomas, Joshua and Matthew, who all called him 'Bubba', with affection. Paul continued his athletic career for decades and was a solid skier and tennis player, finally, but reluctantly, retiring from downhill skiing at age 76. Not giving up very easily, he joined a Superfitness club after turning 80. He was also a skilled vegetable gardener, and travelled with Phyllis in North America, Europe and Hawaii. There will be a brief visitation, a memorial service, and a reception afterwards, commencing at 2 p.m. Saturday October 14, 2006, at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West (at Winder mere, east of the Jane subway), Toronto, 416 767 3153. We will be delighted to see Friends and family there, and of course flowers are most welcome as a touch of this happy celebration of a good life, welllived. Now he has left for the unknown territory ahead of us all. He had a good and strong spirit, a high and thoughtful intelligence, and a loyal and faithful heart. They And And And gave him light in his ways, love, and a space for delight; beauty, and length of days, night, and sleep in the night. We will miss him, and we now wish him dancing in the stars.
