STOKVIS, Elizabeth " Betty" Nina (née Black)
(April 18, 1928-September 4, 2006)
Artist, Vancouver B.C.
Betty is survived by her two daughters, Susan W. STOKVIS and Gillian E. STOKVIS- HAUER; her two granddaughters, Tina F. STOKVIS and Alyssa A. STOKVIS- HAUER of Vancouver, British Columbia; her brother, Patrick A. BLACK of West Vancouver; and by her former companion, during the 1980's, Mr. John WALLACE of Vancouver. Betty was predeceased by her Father, Gordon Boyes BLACK, O.B.E. the Vancouver Publisher of the Western Miner Magazine and her Mother, Constance Vera BLACK (née TURNER); her exhusband, Wilfred David STOKVIS (Lieutenant-Commander, Royal Canadian Naval Reserve (Ret)., and her former companion from the late '50's to mid '60's, Bill REID, Haida Artist. Her long list of Friends affiliated with the art community, patrons and peers, include Gordon Smith of Vancouver, British Columbia; Anne Kipling of Falkland, British Columbia; Irene F. Whittome of Montreal, P.Q.; Bill Kootchen of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Sally Michener of Vancouver, British Columbia to name a few, are at a loss for words in bidding their dear friend a final farewell. Betty was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, 1928. She attended Queen's Hall Private School, Magee High School and for her post secondary education she studied drawing and painting at the Vancouver School of Art. Having left the Vancouver School of Art, and by a twist of fate, Betty went onto become one of Canada's top fashion photography models. The art world, however, was still very much present in her life and in 1959, newly separated, and a single parent of 2 small girls, Betty returned to the Vancouver School of Art and in 1963, graduated with honours in Painting. She went on to become a highly respected Artist/ Painter in Western Canada as well as in the greater International Art World. Her fulfilling career as a painter was complemented by her adventurous world travels, her fabulous parties, and her unprecedented culinary skills all of which were accented by her elegance and personal panache. These qualities were the signature of my Mum, Betty BLACK. Please come and celebrate her life on Saturday, October 7 @ 3: 00 p.m. at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver on 49th Avenue at Oak Street. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Vancouver Art Gallery would be appreciated.

STOLWIJK, Peter
In loving memory of my beloved husband and dear father, Peter, who passed away 1 year ago, July 2, 2005.
We often lay awake at night,
When the world is fast asleep,
And take a walk down memory lane,
With tears upon our cheeks.
Remembering you is easy,
We do it every day,
But missing you is a heartache,
That never goes away.
God has you in his Heaven,
And we have you in our hearts.
Love your wife, Nellie, your children, James, Marilyn and Angie.

STONE, Bernice
In loving memory of our mother and grandmother, Bernice, January As time goes by without you
Days turn into years
We hold a lot of memories
And a million tears
if we could hear your voice and see your smile
if we could only sit and talk with you for a while
if we could be together in the same old way
That would be our only wish today
In our hearts you will always stay
We love you and miss you every day.
-Love you always and miss you so much, Lori, Bruce, Ryan, Sequoya.

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

William SIBBALD, Doctor And Educator (1946-2006)
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook and Women's College hospitals in Toronto was an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who guided the city through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and helped alter the nature of intensive-care treatment in Canada
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Bill SIBBALD was an ideas machine. Strategies, suggestions and potential solutions cascaded from his lips at the Ontario teaching hospitals where he built an international reputation, at global medical conferences and around the family dinner table.
His ideas helped to change the face of intensive-care treatment in Canada, to shape the way health care is delivered in Ontario, to guide Toronto through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis of 2003 and to inspire a new generation of critical-care professionals.
Dr. William John SIBBALD was director of critical care at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, and a professor at the University of Western Ontario from 1977 until 2000. Then he became physician-in-chief at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. In both roles, he was a physician, teacher, leader, mentor and researcher.
"I used to tell people who didn't know him they should ignore something the first time he mentioned it," says Doctor Frank RUTLEDGE, who heads the critical-care programs at Victoria Hospital and Western. "They should pay attention the second time. The third time they should put it at the top of their pile. He threw out so many ideas, if you tried to work on everything the first time it was mentioned, you'd never get anything done." Doctor Steven SHUMAK, deputy physician-in-chief, says many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas involved medical informatics, the application of computers and information systems to improve patient care and education.
Colleagues remember him as gruff but generous, an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who smoked heavily in his early years to burn off excess energy, but who gave it up after an operation for salivary gland cancer. He was an advocate for those he worked with, giving them his undivided attention in private meetings. In the workplace or on the golf course, he strove for perfection, but often interrupted a game to respond to a BlackBerry message. He occasionally told off-colour jokes and he followed hockey religiously, even when out of the country.
Dr. SIBBALD started work before dawn, even on weekends, so he could be home to spend time with his wife and five children. He coached his sons in hockey, attended his children's sporting events and told them all he was their "biggest cheerleader."
Over his career, Doctor SIBBALD wrote about 250 articles and editorials, more than 70 book chapters and some major textbooks on critical care. He was invited to give some 550 lectures in 16 countries. He held many positions with medical and critical-care associations.
Dr. Ron HOLLIDAY, a general surgeon at Victoria Hospital and a professor of surgery at Western, says Doctor SIBBALD was often thinking of issues five or 10 years down the road. And he always knew who to approach to get around the system. "We called it the SIBBALD end run," he says.
Critical-care experts around the world knew him as a friend and a trendsetter. "He was a fantastic scientist and a great clinician respected by all," says Doctor Jean-Louis Vincent, a professor of intensive care at the Free University of Brussels. "He could always ask the right question and raise the appropriate issue in any kind of debate or scientific discussion."
Bill SIBBALD, as his Friends called him, was the middle of three children of Jack SIBBALD, a banker, and Shirley (née STONE) who grew up in a suburb of Guelph, Ontario As a boy, he played basketball, football, badminton and hockey.
Gale KAY, now a retired Presbyterian minister, babysat him when he was about 12. "He was quite clear that he was going to be a doctor," she says, "not that he wanted to be a doctor, but that he was going to be one."
He was graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1970 and stayed on to complete a residency in internal medicine in 1974. That was the year he married Connie ECKERSLEY, a nurse he worked with in intensive care.
From 1974 to 1976, he did a fellowship in critical-care trauma at Wayne State University School of Medicine, in Detroit. The specialty was in its infancy in Canada at the time, and he returned to London as one of the country's few experts in the field.
At the time, Victoria Hospital had become "a massive zone of deferred maintenance," according to Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto and a long-time friend. Doctor Adam LINTON, the hospital's physician-in-chief, put the young Doctor SIBBALD in charge of the intensive-care department where he overcame professional turf wars and put together a team of specialists in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Doctor Trevor LOBB, an anesthetist at the hospital, says Doctor SIBBALD helped change "a glorified recovery room" into a critical-care trauma centre that treated patients flown in by helicopter and that trained fellows who came from around the world. In 1976, he made the news for using an armed forces pressure suit to control massive bleeding in a patient. A year later, he was in the headlines for telling a medical conference in France that the common practice of lowering the head of a critically ill shock victim might actually have detrimental effects.
In one highly publicized incident, Doctor SIBBALD, accompanied by Dr. HOLLIDAY, went to court in the middle of the night seeking permission for a blood transfusion to save the life of a Jehovah's witness boy. The judge bypassed the family's religious objections by making the boy a ward of the court, allowing the procedure to go ahead.
Much of Doctor SIBBALD's research centred on sepsis (disease-causing agents in the blood), trauma, blood substitutes, and ethical issues involving life-support and end of life. In later years, he branched out into the field of health-care policy and delivery.
For many years, he used sheep to study infections in people. "In our research lab at Victoria Hospital, you could hear the sheep baaing," Doctor HOLLIDAY says. Doctor SIBBALD introduced infections into the animals and studied the effects. Then he treated the sheep, so they didn't have to be destroyed.
He served as co-chairman of a Working Group on Critical Care in Ontario, which presented its findings to the province's health ministry in 1991. Over the years, he received many honours, including a distinguished investigator award from the American College of Critical Care Medicine in 1998.
Dr. SIBBALD turned down many job offers in the United States, and in 2000 he moved to Toronto as Sunnybrook's physician-in-chief. That put him on the front lines when many of the patients from the 2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome ended up at Sunnybrook. He threw his back out while dealing with the crisis, so his bed at home became the command post where he kept in contact with officials from hospitals, government and the military.
In one phone call, he told Doctor Tom STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, director of critical care at Toronto's Mount Sinai and University Health Network, that his staff was starting to become ill. "He's a strong man, but he broke down crying," said Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. "It struck me how soft and sensitive he is."
Two back operations followed. Doctor SIBBALD returned to work after each of them, even though he had to hobble around the hallways.
After the severe acute respiratory syndrome emergency ended, Ontario's ministry of health set up a Critical Care Steering Committee. Doctor SIBBALD and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART were among its members. Many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas showed up in the report and are now being implemented, Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART says.
In November, 2004, Doctor SIBBALD was diagnosed with colon cancer. He carried on working and, hoping for a remedy, sought treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. In early September, he was told the end was near. He resigned as Sunnybrook's chief of medicine on September 5 and spent the following week as a patient in the hospital.
Staff members still came to him for advice. Doctor Andreas LAUPACIS, now the director of a research institute at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital, asked for his opinion on an upcoming debate. "His eyes lit up," Doctor LAUPACIS says. "His energy came back. He said, 'Look at this article and that article and here's the point I would be making.' "
Dr. SIBBALD went Toronto on September 12. A day later, his fourth grandchild was born in Vancouver. His son Martyn phoned to say the baby would be called William. The next morning Doctor SIBBALD was shown an e-mailed photo of his new namesake. He died later that day.
William John SIBBALD was born in London, Ontario, on June 28, 1946. He died of colon cancer at his Toronto home on September 14, 2006. He was 60. He leaves his wife Connie; children Tammie, Martyn, Robert, Katie and Georgie; four grandchildren; his mother, Shirley, and sisters Nancy DAVIDSON and Susan TAILOR/TAYLOR.

Bobby CUNNINGHAM, 79: Two-sport pro
By Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporter
His father wanted him to be a golf pro instead of a football pro.
Bobby CUNNINGHAM Jr. became both.
As a halfback, he won a Grey Cup championship with the Montreal Alouettes in 1949, a most outstanding player award in 1953 with the Ottawa Rough Riders, and beat the likes of golf legends Moe Norman and George Knudson on the way to winning the Canadian match-play championship in 1959.
"It was unusual at that time to have those combined talents (football and golf) to that degree," said former Port Credit high school teammate Bill CUNNINGHAM, 80 (no relation.)
Bobby GENOVESE, 44, remembers his father as a "rare breed" in sports.
"Someone once asked him what was tougher: football or golf? And he said golf because in football you just react. In golf, there's too much time to think."
Football was also tougher on the body. Injuries eventually caught up with CUNNINGHAM. In the 1990s, he underwent two hip replacement surgeries, suffered two strokes and his leg was amputated above the knee after gangrene set in.
CUNNINGHAM died at the Wexford Residence nursing home in Scarborough on Thanksgiving weekend. He was 79.
He leaves his daughter, Julia FOX, 53, of Toronto, who runs a courier company with her husband; and his son GENOVESE, of Nassau in the Bahamas, chairman and owner of merchant bank B.G. Capital Group. CUNNINGHAM's older sister, Mina, died a couple of years ago.
Friends and family remembered him as a colourful character. "He was the most engaging guy I ever met," said former Alouettes teammate Bruce Coulter, 78, adding that CUNNINGHAM loved the social scene.
His adventurous side and his love of golf took CUNNINGHAM all over the world after his football career, which began in 1947 and ended with a knee injury in 1955.
In 1958, with only $1,000 in his pocket, he spent the winter on the U.S. tour. He estimated he ate 1,000 pancakes on his way through Texas to save money because they were only 35 cents a plate.
His interest in golf was instilled early by his father, who was the golf pro at St. George's Golf and Country Club in Etobicoke for 32 years. In fact, Bobby CUNNINGHAM Sr. and his son both have their names on the Millar Trophy, emblematic of the Canadian match-play championship.
CUNNINGHAM succeeded his father as golf pro at St. George's from 1960 to 1965, and he made a career teaching golf in the Mississauga area.
Client Marian RITCHIE, 66, became good Friends with him. "When he was teaching me golf it was very cute. I said 'I've got this problem because I keep hooking the ball.' He said to me, 'Well, you don't look like a hooker to me.'" she said, laughing. "He was very sharp."
But it was football where he first found success first. At Port Credit High School, his friend and teammate Bill CUNNINGHAM remembered him for his powerful legs. "His thighs were the size of a tree trunk," his friend, the team's quarterback, recalled. "He was also a great kicker who was good for 50 to 55 yards on every kick."
After high school, he joined the Balmy Beach Rugby Club and stayed two seasons. Just under 6 feet and weighing 200 pounds, CUNNINGHAM soon attracted the attention of the Canadian Football League.
In 1948, he signed a $2,500 contract with the Alouettes, turning down the $1,000 offered by the Argonauts. It was a lot of money for a few months of football; the average annual wage at that time was $2,175.
A halfback who could run and catch passes, he helped lead Montreal to the 1949 Grey Cup championship, scoring a touchdown early in the game. A picture of him in a Toronto newspaper shows him snagging a ball. The caption referred to him as "Crazy Legs" CUNNINGHAM.
In 1953, after being traded to Ottawa, he became the first Canadian to win the Jeff Russel Memorial Trophy as the most outstanding player in the division.
"Everybody thought the world of him," said FOX, his daughter, who with her husband Wayne STONE owns and operates Metro Courier Services Ltd. in Toronto. "I was very proud of him and all his achievements."
Over the years, she helped assemble the memorabilia of his life. For that, he gave her his proudest possession, his 1949 Grey Cup ring, telling her to wear it around her neck. To this day, it is never far from her heart.
