RICHARDSON, Margaret W. (née BEBBINGTON)
In loving memory of my beloved wife Margaret W. RICHARDSON (nee BEBBINGTON,) who passed away on the 8th of April, 1999 in London, Ontario, Canada.
I long to see her kindly face,
I long to see her smile,
I long to see her tender eyes,
And to sit by my side for a while,
I long to hold her hand in mine,
And tell her how much I cared,
And how glad I a.m. to know it was me,
With whom her life she shared,
No one will ever take her place,
And no one ever can,
To brighten my life the way she did,
This sweet and lovely lady, I know
I will wait until we meet,
Upon that other shore,
Where life goes on forever,
We shall part no more,
And be together always.
Your loving husband always Eric and family Margaret, Ray, Ashley, Samantha and Gareth.

Its just a place I come to
So I can show my love.
I know that youre not here now
Youre with mom up above.
But its all that I have left now
Its where we said goodbye.
I like to come and bring a flower
And have a little cry.
I know it will never bring you back again
But as I turn and walk away
I feel I've spent some time with you
And it brightens up my day.
Sis, I love you and miss you more than anyone will ever know, Wendy

RICHARDSON, Theresa Madeline (née LAPETINA)
Left this world with grace on March 13, 2006, surrounded by her family, after 91 glorious years. You cannot squeeze much more out of a life than that! Born in Toronto on February 19, 1915, she was predeceased by her wonderful husband, George, in 1982 and was never able to find a completely suitable replacement. Theresa is survived by her daughter Catharine (Paul CARROLL) and son George ("Stix") both of whom were with her to the end. Tragically, she was predeceased by her other son, Jimmy, in a car accident many years ago, a loss from which she never completely recovered. She loved, and was loved by, her grandchildren, Peter CARROLL (Suzanne LORD), Michael CARROLL (Vera), Ann Marie PIEKENBROCK (Zane) and Amanda RICHARDSON, as well as by her great grandchildren Devin, Jenna and Brendan (Carroll). Her former daughter-in-law, Angela CANNON, was with her at the end, having been a great help over the years. Grand dogs Robin (San Francisco), Rowdy (Vancouver) and Cosimo (Kingston) stand on guard for her. The last five years of her life would have been unbearable if it were not for the tireless assistance, compassion and humour of her dear friend, Merlin CAMERON, and all the staff and volunteers at Seven Oaks Home for the Aged, with special thanks also to Bev and Harold PARRINGTON for the "happy hours," especially on Fridays. Theresa, and her husband, were always immersed in music, classical and opera in particular, but also pop. George Sr.'s favourite line, with no apologies to Caruso or Beurling, was "if I could sing like that I wouldn't even talk to you!" Theresa also was a wiz on the piano, playing mostly by ear. This love of music transcended their life and is carried forward by her descendants. Even the dogs like music. A Memorial Mass was celebrated on March 22, 2006 at Saint Thomas More Catholic Church followed by interment with her parents, husband and son at Mount Hope Cemetery. At Theresa's request, attendance was limited to family and close Friends as she did not want a fuss. Anyone wishing to make a donation in memory of Theresa is invited to send it to Seven Oaks Home for the Aged, 9 Neilson Road, Toronto, Ontario M1E 5E1 where a fund has been established to continue the tradition of camaraderie among the residents, in which Theresa was an active participant.

RICHARDSON, John, 1852 -- Died This Day
Writer born at Queenston, Upper Canada, on October 4, 1796
As a young man he fought in the War of 1812 as a member of the militia. Later, after an attempt at soldiering in the regular army, he tried his hand at journalism and then fiction. He failed miserably, except for his 1832 novel Wacousta: Or The Prophecy. Set during Pontiac's successful 1763 uprising in the Detroit frontier area, it was a compelling yarn about betrayal and atrocities told from the point of view of a Scottish immigrant who had been accepted by the Indians as their leader and war chief. The work was a modest success and remains in print. In 1842, he published a history of the War of 1812, but wrote little else of value. He died in poverty.

RICHARDSON, Howard William
Bill RICHARDSON died peacefully in Ottawa on July 7, 2006, his 92nd birthday, after a short illness. He was born in Montreal and grew up in Montreal West, spending summers at Lake Macdonald in the Laurentians. After graduation from Montreal West High, he joined Williams and Wilson, Ltd., a leading distributor of production machinery, where his father also worked. A keen hockey player, he played semi-pro, until sidelined by a knee injury. In 1943, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, completing officer training at King's College in Halifax. Later in the same year, he married Grace Edith (Peggy) TEES, also of Montreal. Stationed in Halifax, he served as a Sub-Lieutenant on board corvettes doing convoy duty on the North Atlantic Ocean. After demobilization, Bill re-joined Williams and Wilson and in 1951, took up residence in Hudson, Quebec. Bill and Peggy curled in the winters and with four young children, the family was active in the yacht club and the golf club, as well as horseback riding. Each fall, Bill went duck hunting with Friends and business colleagues on the lower St. Lawrence River. In 1962, he joined the fledgling Toronto industrial distributor, Wainbee Tools Ltd., as a partner. Together with Jean-Paul Trudeau, he established a successful branch in Montreal, serving Quebec and the Maritimes. In 1974, he retired and he and Peggy moved to West Hawkesbury, Ontario, where he converted a ramshackle barn on a farm property to a welcoming family home. He led a very active life at Granary Farm, growing nursery stock, flowers and vegetables and making honey. He was a partner in a near-by Christmas tree farm. He enjoyed bass fishing at the North Lake Fish and Game Club's Lac Commandant, as well as salmon fishing in Labrador. On visits from his grandchildren, he entertained them with rides in the tractor bucket, feeding the steers and many practical jokes. He knew where to find the best corn on the cob in every place he lived. Bill and Peggy wintered in Vero Beach, Florida for over 25 years, developing many close Friendships. Bill especially enjoyed fishing and was a dedicated fan of the Dodgers at their spring training camps. In 1997, he and Peggy moved to Bath, Ontario and then, in declining health, to a retirement residence in Ottawa in 2005. Bill was predeceased by his sisters, Jean Laurie and Ruth Empey. He is survived by Peggy, his wife of 63 years, his son, Blair RICHARDSON of Oakville, daughters Sheila BLAINEY of Cobourg, Diana CARR of Ottawa and Pamela RICHARDSON of Hudson, Quebec along with son-in-law Jim BLAINEY, daughter-inlaw Sharon RICHARDSON, brother-in-law Ronald LAURIE, nephew Bill EMPEY, niece Anne GILLESPIE, cousin Frances COULL, and grandchildren Evan and Tori (BLAINEY,) Matthew and Katherine (CARR) and Graham and Gillian (RICHARDSON.) Following a private funeral, he will be interred at the Saint_James Anglican Church cemetery in Hudson, Quebec. He will long be remembered for living according to a strongly-held sense of duty; to his country, his wife and family, his employees, and his Friends. He will be sadly missed. In lieu of flowers, donations to Ducks Unlimited Canada, P.O. Box 1160, Stonewall, Manitoba R0C 2Z0 would be appreciated. A special thanks goes to the Alzheimer Society of Kingston, for their support to the family.

RICHARDSON, Hugh, 1913 -- Died This Day
Lawyer and judge born in London on July 31, 1826.
Called to the bar of Upper Canada in 1847, he lived in Woodstock, Ontario, until 1872, where he served as the Crown attorney for Oxford County. In 1872, he went to Ottawa as chief clerk of the Department of Justice and remained there until 1876, when he was made stipendiary magistrate in the North-West Territories. At the same time, he also held a seat on the Territorial Executive Council and served as legal adviser to the lieutenant-governor. In 1885, he secured a place in history when he presided at the trial of Louis RIEL, the leader of Northwest Rebellion. Sadly, he was not up to the job and may have been selected for just that reason. The trial was a plodding, procedural affair that remains controversial to this day. In 1887, he was made chief justice of the North-West Territories Supreme Court.

Kenneth McILWRAITH, Officer and Diplomat (1917-2006)
The quiet ambassador had some remarkable wartime adventures -- patrolling Palestine on horseback and being taken prisoner by the French Foreign Legion, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
A very private, modest person, Kenneth McILWRAITH disliked talking about himself almost as much as he loved playing golf after he retired from the diplomatic service. Nevertheless, he had some extraordinary adventures in his long life.
Although Canadian born, he served with the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry, one of the last British cavalry regiments to still use horses at the beginning of the Second World War. He was captured by the French Foreign Legion in the Syrian desert in 1941 and held for two months as a prisoner-of-war of Vichy France.
After the war he had a lengthy career as a diplomat and ultimately became Canadian ambassador to Norway and Iceland. "He was a man of infinite courtesy and patience and he helped train his juniors in a methodical and systematic way that was quite rare among senior officers and heads of missions," said Roy MacLAREN, a former High Commissioner to London and one of Mr. McILWRAITH's juniors at External Affairs. "The juniors in the department greatly admired him. He would take any amount of time helping to train us and showing us by example how to conduct ourselves," said Mr. MacLAREN. "He was a very fine person."
Kenneth Douglas McILWRAITH was the younger son of William Norman McILWRAITH and his wife Ruby (née SOMERVILLE.) His father, who had left school at 16, was hired as a clerk by George Herbert WOOD and James Henry GUNDY as one of their first two employees on the day they opened their investment firm in 1905. Mr. McILWRAITH became such an adept and valued investment analyst that five years later, when he was 30, the founders asked him to open the London office of Wood Gundy (which is now part of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce).
Although a decidedly anglophile couple, the McILWRAITHs returned to Canada every summer to their cottage on Centre Island in Lake Ontario across the harbour from Toronto, and deliberately came back to Canada in the penultimate year of the First World War so that their second son, Kenneth, could (like his elder brother William) be born on Canadian soil. As well, Mr. McILWRAITH "did not trust the quality of British medical treatment," said his grand_son Bill McILWRAITH in a e-mail from Thailand where he owns a small resort.
Ken was sent to board at Boxgrove preparatory school in Guildford, Surrey, from the age of 8. At 13, he went to Rugby School, near Coventry in Warwickshire, the same school that the soldier-poet Rupert Brooke had attended, and then went up to Cambridge where he studied English literature at Clare College, graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1939 and a master's the following year.
Mr. McILWRAITH joined the British Army as a second lieutenant and served with the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry, a regiment that can trace its lineage back to 1794. At the time Mr. McILWRAITH enlisted, the regiment (which had been given the honorific Royal in 1831 and designated the Prince of Wales's Own in 1863 in tribute to the future King Edward VII) was still a cavalry unit, a tradition that must have appealed to the horse-loving Mr. McILWRAITH. He, along with his batman, served in Palestine, riding his own two horses (which he had shipped by train and boat from England) on patrols. It was only at the end of 1941, two years into the war, that the regiment was mechanized, following its transfer to the Royal Armoured Corps.
While serving as a regimental liaison officer in the Syrian desert, Mr. McILWRAITH and his batman were captured south of Palmyra on June 2, 1941, by a French patrol (of Arab soldiers with French officers, as he later explained in a letter to his parents). As France had fallen to the Germans the year before and established the Vichy collaborationist government, the French and the British were technically at war.
Mr. McILWRAITH was taken to the local commandant, a captain in the French Foreign Legion. After a noisy exchange, the commandant sent his prisoner on his first flight by "aeroplane" to Homs, about 145 kilometres west of Palmyra. "The plane was a very ancient affair (four-seater biplane), the air currents over the desert were particularly active, and the pilot and navigator were more concerned with some bottles of wine they had brought with them than with the smooth progress of their flying chicken-crate," he wrote to his parents in September, 1941.
Lieutenant McILWRAITH was transported along with other captured British officers to Alefsis on the outskirts of Athens. That's where he saw the Germans for the first time. "The Jerries paid no attention to us other than to glance with a certain bovine curiosity at the rather motley looking party of British officers. It was obvious, however, that the French depended on German authorization for every move they made," he wrote.
Another "hair-raising" flight later, the prisoners reached Salonika, where they were kept in filthy conditions in a warehouse for five days and then interned for two weeks in the hold of a French passenger ship in the harbour. After the Saint Jean d'Acre Armistice was signed on July 14 between British forces in the Middle East and Vichy France forces in Syria under General Henri Dentz, he should have been returned to the British. The prisoners were shown the armistice and allowed to read the clause demanding their immediate return to the British, but they were still loaded on a train and sent across enemy-occupied Europe and through Germany to Toulon, France -- all the time in ghastly conditions, without adequate food or water.
In Toulon, he and the other officers were finally released under the terms of the armistice and sent back to Beirut on a French ship that sailed through the Mediterranean, enjoying considerably better conditions than he had endured on his outward journey. He arrived in Cairo on August 19, a little more than two months after his capture and after 10 days leave, returned to the fighting.
The Royal Wiltshire was the first British tank regiment to engage the German (and Italian) forces under General Erwin Rommel at the crucial battle of El Alamein in North Africa in 1942. Mr. McILWRAITH missed the fighting because he was ill with jaundice and desert sores, (a virulent form of impetigo that was exacerbated by sand, heat and the confined quarters in tanks). The sergeant who took his place was killed almost immediately, according to Mr. McILWRAITH's daughter Mary.
He later served in Norway and was demobilized with the rank of captain in 1946. Although he survived the war, many of his school Friends and army colleagues were killed and he suffered from horrible nightmares about the horrors he had witnessed. His daughter, Mary McILWRAITH, can still remember him shouting in his sleep and waking everybody up. As a result they rarely talked about their father's war experience.
When peace came, his father wanted him to join Wood Gundy, but he resisted and opted instead to study Canadian history at the University of Toronto for a year with a view to joining External Affairs (now Foreign Affairs and International Trade), which he did on September 1, 1948, after successfully writing the entrance examinations. As a student, Mr. McILWRAITH lived in a boarding house on Lonsdale Road. That's where he met Ruth (née KEOGH) RICHARDSON, a widow one year his senior and the mother of two little girls, Deirdre and Darragh. Her husband Pat had fought with the Canadian forces and been killed in Holland near the end of the War.
Although of different religions -- Mr. McILWRAITH was Protestant and Mrs. RICHARDSON was Irish Catholic -- they married in 1951 just before he received his first foreign posting to Geneva. During their three years in Switzerland, the McILWRAITHs' daughter Mary was born. The family returned to Canada and lived in Ottawa where Mr. McILWRAITH was a member of the inspection service, charged with travelling the globe to observe and report back on conditions in Canadian embassies and diplomatic missions. The McILWRAITH's final child, Sheila, was born in Ottawa just before their next posting to Tokyo in 1958. They travelled by ship, as Mrs. McILWRAITH disliked flying, a trip that her daughter Mary still remembers as the height of luxury and glamour. After a three-year stint, the family went back again to Ottawa where Mr. McILWRAITH was head of personnel for External Affairs.
In 1964, the fluently bilingual Mr. McILWRAITH was posted to Paris at the height of the first wave of Front de Liberation du Québec violence in Quebec and during a troubled diplomatic period between French president Charles de Gaulle and the Canadian government. While working in the embassy he took some pleasure in recounting to his colleagues how an earlier French administration had held him as a prisoner-of-war, according to his old friend and colleague Peter Towe, former Canadian ambassador to the United Nations. Mr. McILWRAITH's final posting was to Oslo where he served as ambassador to Norway and Iceland from 1972 until 1976.
He took early retirement at 60 and continued to live in Ottawa where he enjoyed playing golf, meeting with old Friends from External and reading. He and his wife separated in 1990 and she returned to Toronto where she died in 2004.
Mr. McILWRAITH, who continued to live in Ottawa in the family home with his step-daughter Darragh, was in good health, surviving prostate cancer and melanoma, until the cancer metastasized to his urinary tract. He died shortly after receiving the diagnosis and having refused treatment.
Kenneth Douglas McILWRAITH was born in Toronto on May 25, 1917. He died in Ottawa on September 11, 2006. He was 89. He is survived by his four daughters, three grandchildren and his extended family.

WRIGHT, Gretchen (née RICHARDSON)
By Karen Lander TUCKERMAN, Page A24
Great-grandmother, pioneer, teacher, farmer. Born October 10, 1905, in Tilbury, Ontario Died September 5, in Provost, Alberta., aged 100.
It was December of 1927 and 50 degrees below zero the morning Gretchen RICHARDSON married Bert WRIGHT, farmer and auctioneer, in the Chauvin, Alberta., telephone office where her family lived. Bert had bought a buffalo coat as her wedding gift, but it was so cold that, against the furrier's advice, he gave it to her before the big day. After spending the winter in South Dakota, the newlyweds returned to Alberta via Winnipeg, where they stopped to buy everything they'd need to set up house. Not long afterward, the Depression years began. "I was lucky," Grandma told us. "If we'd been married a year later, I might have had nothing to set up my house."
Gretchen quickly learned to cook and bake for a crew, and that's the way she always baked. She told us that hired men didn't care about the food looking fancy, there just had to be a lot of it. (Years later, her deep-freeze was legendary for the baking produced on a moment's notice.) They farmed on a large scale, six sections of land, so Gretchen had lots of men to feed, plus a new baby, Albion, and her father (suffering from Parkinson's disease) to care for. Those years were tough. The Second World War brought an end to the Depression, and developments in farm equipment brought an end to the family farm. Gretchen and Bert made new arrangements to farm the land, moved into town and never looked back.
Just after settling in Provost, the deaths of Gretchen's mother and Bert left her living alone for the first time in her life. But even as her children and their families moved away, she returned to teaching and stayed put for 50 more years.
Perhaps she was tired of being uprooted. Gretchen was just 3 when they moved from Tilbury to Wainwright where her father established the first general store. Four years later, they moved to Edmonton, and later to Sedgewick where they operated an egg and cream buying station, and finally to a farm near Chauvin. Gretchen and her two younger sisters travelled to school by horse-drawn buggy in the summer and by sleigh in winter. When Gretchen's father became ill, her mother took over the Chauvin telephone office.
That's when Grandma first learned to drive. Just 20 and teaching school, she cranked her father's Model T Ford into action and came home weekends to help her mother in the telephone office. She loved driving, and it wasn't until age 97 that she very reluctantly gave up her licence. It was her first real loss of independence.
Gretchen loved to talk and wasn't afraid to speak her mind. But the Alberta in which she grew up was not culturally diverse. At times she surprised us when her language unintentionally betrayed the prejudice of those times.
Grandma anchored all of us to the Prairies, to farming and to our roots. Her letters were filled with news of relatives and Friends, advice, encouragement and, depending on the season, the weather, the crop and the harvest. In Provost, you were introduced and known as Mrs. WRIGHT's (great) grandchild, as the child of Evelyn or Albion. Grandma kept us linked to our past, even as we tried hard to forge ahead.
This past June, when cancer landed her in the hospital for the first time since Evelyn was born, doctors quickly realized she wasn't any ordinary 100-year-old. After two weeks of radiation treatments, she was sent from Edmonton back to the Provost hospital. The day they discharged her, she got her walker, asked her great nephew to carry her things, and walked from the hospital to her home at the seniors' lodge. I exclaimed about how amazing that was and she replied, "Well, it was only across the road." Gretchen died the day the harvest was done. It was a good crop.
Karen is Gretchen's granddaughter, Albion's daughter.

Used bookseller was a friend to customers
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
One of the bonuses of living in a big city is the small bookstore.
The very small used bookstore.
The kind where the aisles are narrow, book-lined shelves reach from floor to ceiling, and handwritten notes denote whether they are history, romance, mystery or for children.
The kind of place where there are always boxes of more books, spine up, on every available surface waiting for sorting.
The kind Olive NAVIS ran for 32 years.
First on Yonge St. (near Lawrence Ave.), then on Avenue Rd., the Handy Book Exchange attracted customers from near and far, and that is more than a cliché. NAVIS had regulars from the United States, North Bay and the Beach. Most became her Friends. Long before there were coffee bars on every corner, her coffee pot was always on.
She had treats for all the dogs. One customer once tried to avoid the bookstore -- she was in a hurry that particular day -- and crossed the street. But her dog balked and refused to move. The woman had to cross back over Avenue Rd. and stop at the store to appease her pet.
There are at least 10,000 books in the store -- although NAVIS's son, Gord, believes there are probably more like 20,000 to 30,000 books when you count those in the basement.
Nothing was or is computerized -- NAVIS used to keep track of her books in her head or in a series of small pads of paper in which she would record the author's name, every book he or she'd written and the number of copies she had.
Her good friend Carole NELLES, who has run the store during the past couple of years when NAVIS has been too ill to come in, used to call her at home three times a day, on the pretext of locating a book.
"I did it to keep her part of it," NELLES said. "Say someone wanted Leon Uris's Trinity, she'd say 'Go downstairs, walk straight to the bathroom, turn left at the boxes. Lift the top box and it's there.' She was always right."
NAVIS, the mother of two sons, always referred to NELLES as the daughter she never had. There was real love between the two, which started when they bonded over books and cigarettes smoked by the back door and grew when NELLES, a nurse working in London, Ontario, began spending more and more time in the bookstore when she was back in Toronto on her days off.
Together they cleaned up the books -- NAVIS called it their "spit and polish" day -- fixing broken spines with coloured magic markers, coating the covers with Mylar so they shone once more. "It was a lot of fun," NELLES recalled. "It's amazing what you can do."
NAVIS was fun, too. She kept a favourite cartoon near the cash "Going into a bookstore and buying one book is like going to McDonald's and buying one French fry." She collected jokes, filling 10 scrapbooks with them. She would foist copies of jokes on her customers.
She also handed out small notebooks, telling her customers to write down every book they read to avoid duplications.
"I was the bane of Olive's existence," said Enid RICHARDSON. "She would explain to me -- over and over -- that when books came out in their second printing, often their covers were different colours. 'Enid, this is one you have already read,' she would say. She gave me two notebooks to write my books down. I never used them."
For the last few years she was in the store, she refused to let RICHARDSON pay for books. RICHARDSON and her late husband, Jack, often drove her home from her shop -- NAVIS loathed using taxis and could never understand why a short trip from the store to Wanless Crescent could cost $7.
And until ill health stopped her, NAVIS was always at her store. It was officially closed Mondays, but she would be there anyway working on inventory. She absolutely loved being there. After her husband Borden died in 2001, her home was just a place to sleep. The store was always her real home.
Olive CHABAN was born and raised in Winnipeg. She married Borden NAVIS, a hometown Ukrainian boy and talented graphic artist in Winnipeg in 1938 and the two moved to Toronto. Sons Gord and Al were born 11 years apart; the family always lived with Borden's parents. Father and son owned the house jointly, but it was NAVIS's mother-in-law, whom neighbourhood kids called Queen Mary, who ruled it.
"My mother came from an abusive home -- so she never fought and maybe had one or two confrontations with my Dad during all those years," Gord NAVIS recalled. And so she was always polite to her mother-in-law, even going home to make lunch for her every day she worked at the bookstore.
NAVIS worked for a Yonge St. bookstore, then for Simpson's department store variously as a model, white-gloved elevator attendant, and in their book section. No one in the family is too sure about when she went to work for Tom MERCHANT, who owned the Handy Book Exchange on Yonge St. near their home.
She took over the store in 1974 after MERCHANT died. NELLES said she had been in the process of buying the business with weekly payments culled from the sale of handicrafts -- crocheted toilet paper covers and the like -- she made and sold in the store.
"It was a cute little store, a half-width store," recalled Gord NAVIS, and it thrived under the combination of NAVIS's personality, her knowledge of books and her coffee pot.
The family opened up the second location on Avenue Rd. in 1982 for son Al to operate. Ten years later, she moved into that store, when Al started a rare book and first edition business in Thornhill.
She was always happy in her store. She had a knack for finding just the right book -- especially for younger readers, whom she doted on. That doesn't mean she made money -- far from it, possibly because she was so generous about the credit she gave people for the used books they brought her.
"With Ollie, some customers brought 10 cartons of books. She'd give a credit of $1 per paperback. One man had a credit for $250," NELLES said.
Her eyesight began failing -- she developed cataracts -- but NAVIS kept going to the store until 2003, when she suffered an accidental fall at home. She died early on November 9 at age 89. NELLES opened the store that day in her honour. Her picture is still in the window and by the cash is a book for customers to sign. Many have.
"You gave me a googly-eyed pencil," wrote one young reader. "You were the first friend I made when I moved here," wrote another. And one person spoke for hundreds of customers when he wrote: "You were a touchstone in my reading life."
