BACON, Barbara Harriet (née PORTER)
Peacefully at Countryside Manor on June 6, 2006 Barbara passed away with family by her side. Loving wife and best friend of Frank BACON (1987,) very dear mother to Arthur and his wife Olga, Richard and his partner Janet of Surrey, England, special grandmother to Michelle and Leah. Survived by her sister Mary LENEHAN, brother-in-law Bill BACON of Winnipeg and sister-in-law Essie BACON. Barbara will be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews and their families for her loving and caring nature. Barbara was born on June 17, 1914 in London, Ontario to Frank Arthur PORTER and Helen Irene WALDHOFF. In 1941 Barbara married Frank BACON and after a brief stay in London they moved to Lambeth to raise their family. Barbara was totally devoted to the three men in her life. Her unconditional love, never ending support and encouragement as numerous family endeavours were pursued was the essence of Barbara and her greatest gift to them. Having a very keen interest in china, Barbara joined Sayvette Department Stores from 1965-1976 becoming head of the Giftware Department. In June of 1978 Barbara joined Birks Jewellers and was well known for her enthusiasm and "very catchy smile". Barbara was an active member in the Lambeth community for many years, developing many Friends and sharing in many activities. Barbara was an avid sports fan and enjoyed playing bridge and euchre. Barbara's strength and commitment to her husband Frank during his period of illness was remarkable. During her later years, Barbara was a very devoted and loving grandmother. Her kind and gentle manner will forever warm the hearts of her granddaughters. She will always be remembered for supplying awesome "dress up" clothing, preparing fabulous Sunday family dinners and baking delicious brownies. In 2001 Barbara moved from Lambeth to Countryside Manor. Heather and her staff provided a loving and compassionate environment that allowed Barbara to live out her life with grace and dignity. If desired, memorial contributions to Countryside Manor, 24264 Coldstream Road, R.R.#2, Ilderton, Ontario N0M 2A0 would be appreciated by the family as gratitude for the kindness they showed to Barbara. Private Burial Saturday June 10, 2006.

SONSHINE, Joseph
By Ruth PIKE, Page A18
Veteran, entrepreneur, philanthropist. Born October 11, 1920, in Toronto. Died March 13 in Toronto, of cancer, aged 85.
In June of 1944, an Royal Canadian Air Force plane was shot down during a bombing raid near the French-German border. Alone and injured, the navigator, Joe SONSHINE, buried his parachute and hid in the forest for several days until he could walk. A farmer who spotted him got him into the escape lines organized by the French Underground. For several weeks, he was passed from one safe house to another. Unable to speak French, in public he posed as a deaf-mute. In private, he helped plot local sabotage.
Joe's planned escape to England was foiled when a collaborator betrayed him to the Gestapo. Because he was captured in civilian clothes, he was presumed to be a spy. He was transported in a cattle car to Buchenwald where he was kept in solitary confinement. Denied access to protection under the terms of the Geneva Convention, he was sentenced to death. Months later, finally recognized as military, he was sent, first to Stalag Luft III, then force-marched with other Prisoners of War from one camp to another until liberated by the Russians.
Although he knew the consequences could be dire, Joe had told a guard that he was a Jew, because he wanted a Jewish burial. His concern for his remains was premature. Despite everything, emaciated and ill, Joe outlived the war.
Joe's core beliefs included hard work and family values. Back in Toronto, he married Mildred LONGERT, his sweetheart who had waited. Their marriage exemplified the best interdependent, loving relationship possible. In 1969, he founded a family company, Welded Tube of Canada, one of the leading steel tubing producers in North America with plants in South Carolina and Ohio as well as Toronto.
Joe was big in every respect. Six feet tall, 300 pounds in his prime, he dreamed big, had lofty expectations, strong convictions, solid principles and powerful determination. He lived on a grand scale but was surprisingly soft-spoken and seemingly shy; quietly dignified and unassuming.
A standard nuclear family would not suffice for Joe. His immediate family had 24 tightly-knit members. His virtual family was far greater, all regulars on his invitation list for any kind of gathering. Joe's last party, three months before his death, was a celebration of his and Mildred's 60th wedding anniversary.
Joe's life was more than work, family and fun. When the Canadian War Museum was being built in Ottawa, Joe saw the opportunity to provide a memorial for his older brother, Murray. A flying officer whose plane was also shot down, Murray's body was never recovered. The boardroom in the museum bears Murray's name.
Joe broke his silence about those terrible months in Buchenwald when two veterans who had also been imprisoned illegally started compiling an oral history. He financed the publication of 168 Jump Into Hell, to let the world know what had occurred. Subsequently, Joe led other survivors to Ottawa to lobby for official recognition and for assistance in getting compensation from the German government.
The Buchenwald episode left Joe predisposed to various ailments and physical disabilities entailing repeated surgical procedures. His nephew, endocrinologist Paul WALFISH, guided him through the health-care system. In gratitude, last summer, Joe supported the start up of The Joseph and Mildred Sonshine Family Centre for head and Neck Diseases at Mount Sinai Hospital.
Although Joseph SONSHINE was not a public figure, it was not surprising to see more than 750 people at his funeral -- and even more visited the family during the week of Shiva to offer condolences.
Ruth PIKE's oldest son, Robert, is married to Joe's youngest daughter, Ellen.
