WARD, Tim
In loving memory of our son, brother and grand_son Tim, who left us 15 years ago, February 19, 1991 (our Valentine).
We never asked for miracles
But today one would do
To see the door swing open
And see our Tim walk through
if we could have one lifetime wish
One dream that would come true
It would be to sit and talk about
The last 15 years we missed with you.
We miss you, Tim.
-Forever loved and missed by Mom and Dad, Jamie and Grandma JOHNSTON.

LEBEDEW, Evelyn Louise (GRAHAM)
Passed away July 5th, at University Hospital, peacefully and with Ky and Deb by her side. Evelyn was born June 7, 1934 in London, Ontario. She is predeceased by her parents and husband, Paul LEBEDEW. She will be sadly missed by her children; Paul and Glenda WADDELL, Ky WADDELL and Deb ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, and Alexander and Corry LEBEDEW. Zack WADDELL will never forget the time spent together playing games and talking with his "Meme". Jan (Brad), Mike (Kim), and Chris (Natasha) have many years of laughter and fun to remember Evie by. Dawson LEBEDEW, and his sister Fiona (yet to be born), will learn of their Grandma through stories. Evelyn is survived by her siblings; Ken GRAHAM, Cheryl and Fred SMALL and Marrianne and Marvin MAGILL, John and Burt Ann WARD were special Friends, and their presence in her life these past few years was greatly celebrated by Evelyn. Evelyn spent most of her adult life in London and then Exeter where she raised her three children with unconditional love and support. During her time in Exeter, she started the first "Beavers" pack and served for many years as a leader. These were happy times for Evelyn and nothing pleased her more than watching children, her own and others enjoying themselves. She returned to London 15 years ago, when her first diagnosis of breast cancer was received. Thankfully, she had been symptom free since that early treatment, and only very recently began the battle again. She spent her last weeks at home, as was her wish. Her family offer sincere thanks to Doctor Irene COHEN for her skilled and compassionate care of Evelyn during these last weeks. The Community Care Access Centre team and the Victorian Order of Nurses palliative team were also instrumental in supporting her stay at home. Special thanks to University Hospital palliative team, especially Carolyn. Family and Friends will be received at the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North on Friday, July 7th from 3 p.m.-5 p.m. and 7 p.m.-9 p.m. The funeral service, officiated by The Rev. Sylvia BRIGHTWELL, will take place at Christ Anglican Church, 138 Hill Street, at Wellington, at 4: 30 p.m. on Saturday, July 8th. If so desired, rather than flowers, Evelyn has requested donations to Christ Anglican Church in her memory.

BLACKBURN's writing brought war home
By John WARD, Canadian Press, Fri., November 17, 2006
Ottawa -- George BLACKBURN, who was a journalist, a composer, a songwriter, a public servant, a war hero and an acclaimed author, died in an Ottawa hospital Wednesday. He was 90.
He was a gregarious, fun-loving, piano-playing story-teller with a twinkling eye and a gift for a telling phrase.
He wrote award-winning songs, a play that was performed in a purpose-built theatre at Upper Canada Village, and produced and wrote television and radio documentaries.
His three-volume memoir of his harrowing, Second World War career as a forward artillery observer, won praise when it was published in the 1990s. He was showered with prizes and awards, including the Order of Canada.
The books, The Guns of Normandy, The Guns of Victory and Where the Hell are the Guns?, recounted his war experiences, running from the last, idyllic pre-war summer of 1939 when he was working as a reporter in Pembroke, through the hellish time on the front lines calling down artillery fire on enemy positions.
They were written in an unusual first-person style, which gave them a chilling "you are there" realism and they offered a unique account of the role that the gunners played in the bitter, brutal campaign from Normandy through the Netherlands.
BLACKBURN was one of the longest-serving forward observers in the Canadian army. It was a dangerous job and most of his fellow observers were killed or wounded as they plied their hazardous trade within sight of the enemy.
The observers job was to direct fire from gun batteries positioned well behind them onto enemy targets, correcting the aim of the gunners. Because they controlled the artillery, they were key targets for the Germans, who knew if they killed the observer, they blinded the gunners.
BLACKBURN won the Military Cross for protecting a Canadian bridgehead in Holland.
And his books had impact.
"Anyone who reads this will put it down in wonderment, whispering softly, 'So that's what it was like,' " wrote Cliff Chadderton of the War Amps.
Quill and Quire, in a review of The Guns of Normandy, said it "brings us as close as we will ever come to the tension and turmoil of the fighting in Normandy half a century ago."

RAYMONT, Robert Lewis
By Peter RAYMONT and David RAYMONT and Elizabeth RAYMONT, Page A14
Ranch hand, military officer, public servant, proud Canadian. Born April 2, 1908, in Llanishen, Wales. Died September 3, 2005, in Ottawa, of natural causes, aged 97.
A kind, generous, ever-curious man, Dad's life was one of adventure, surprise and quiet dedication to his country and his family.
Robert (Bob) RAYMONT was a man very much of his time: an age of decency, humanity and personal courage. He was one of those quiet Canadians who accepted the challenge to help create a new world out of the ruins of the Second World War. He played an important role, inside the government, to help create Canada's prominent position on the world stage.
His 97 years spanned the beginning, and almost the end, of the petroleum age. Born in Llanishen, Wales, at 4, Rob lost his father, Charles, a mathematics teacher, to cancer. His mother, Gwen (also a teacher), and her three sons, were supported by many uncles and aunts.
As the youngest child, Rob chose not to take work at his uncle's steel works. He spent a few years toiling for a British bank, where his main job was copying financial documents -- by hand! In 1929, at age 21, he took a boat to Canada.
The stories of his arrival in Canada were some of his favourites: Surviving a dreadful storm at sea: the long train-ride west to Alberta (an opportunity to meet many people of his age who'd play their part in making the country grow); getting off the train at a whistle stop, the Rocky Mountains etched against the evening sky, cowboys riding toward him on horseback through the snow.
He worked on his Aunt Maud's cattle ranch at Spencer Creek, just west of Cochrane, Alberta., in the beautiful foothills. Dad dabbled in the pipeline business and the oil patch and drove a 16-cylinder Marmon. One of his many projects was the planning of a private oil and gas pipeline to link major Canadian cities, but the war intervened. He enlisted in the army, joined the Loyal Edmonton Regiment, trained at Calgary's Currie Barracks, and led recruiting drives throughout Alberta.
Dad's organizational skills were appreciated and he advanced quickly through the ranks. As a lieutenant-colonel, he ran the Canadian Intelligence Corps training facility in Aldershot, England. For his war service he was awarded the M.B.E. (Member of the British Empire). Later, he received many other honours.
In Sheffield, during the war, he married Mary WARD, an intelligent woman who drove for the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry. After the war, back in Ottawa, Dad served as executive staff officer to four Chiefs of Defence Staff. His work involved Canada's participation in the creation of North Atlantic Treaty Organization and North American Air Defence Command. He also played an integral role in planning Canada's first United Nations Peacekeeping contingents.
Following Colonel RAYMONT's retirement from the Canadian army, he wrote a series of historical reference volumes and he declassified intelligence documents for the Department of External Affairs. He later received a citation from the Department of National Defence thanking him for his committed service in the recording of many Canadian initiatives during the Second World War and the post-war peace process.
For us, his three proud children, Dad offered a steady hand, with gentle humour and a broad perspective, willing to let us find our own paths, ever supportive of the choices we made.
Dad loved a round of golf, a day at the beach, and good banter.
Intelligent, gentle and devoted to his family, we'll miss the twinkle in his eye and his sage advice. "Don't take any wooden nickels" and "Take care of each other."
Elizabeth, Peter and David are Robert's children.

WALLIS, Colin Ross " Bud"
On March 25th, 2006, in his 77th year, due to Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, an illness with no known cause and no known cure. Colin was a born and bred Torontonian with undying loyalty to his city and his employer of over forty years, the late Moore Business Forms. He was a man who enjoyed a lifetime of good luck, who said if he had it to do all over again, there was not one single thing he would change. Colin leaves his wife Helen, Peterborough children Laura Kate (Patrick GRANLEESE,) Toronto, and Scott Cameron (Maggie BERG,) Kingston; beautiful bright granddaughters Rebecca and Emma, brother Jack, and numerous nieces and nephews; he was predeceased by his twin sister, Barbara, and his dear friend, John WARD. Bud abhorred funerals and cemeteries, and in a final, master stroke of procrastination, he willed his body to science in the hope that it will help in finding a cure for this strange disease that stalked him for the past two years. If you would like to share your memories of this happy man, and join in a possible memorial at a later date to raise a glass and bid him a fond farewell, please email hwallis@sympatico.ca.

WALLIS, Colin Ross " Bud"
On March 25th, 2006, in his 77th year, due to Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, an illness with no known cause and no known cure. Colin was a born and bred Torontonian with undying loyalty to his city and his employer of over forty years, the late Moore Business Forms. He was a man who enjoyed a lifetime of good luck, who said if he had it to do all over again, there was not one single thing he would change. Colin leaves his wife Helen, Peterborough children Laura Kate (Patrick GRANLEESE,) Toronto, and Scott Cameron (Maggie BERG,) Kingston; beautiful, bright granddaughters Rebecca and Emma, brother Jack, and numerous nieces and nephews; he was predeceased by his twin sister, Barbara, and his dear friend, John WARD. Bud abhorred funerals and cemeteries, and in a final, master stroke of procrastination, he willed his body to science in the hope that it will help in finding a cure for this strange disease that stalked him for the past two years. If you would like to share your memories of this happy man, and join in a possible memorial at a later date to raise a glass and bid him a fond farewell, please email hwallis@sympatico.ca.

Anna RUSSELL, 94: Opera parodist
Singer Anna RUSSELL got start in T.O.
Took cheeky shows around the globe
By Olivia WARD, Staff Reporter with files from Associated Press
The fat lady has sung.
After a dazzling, often zany career spanning six decades, singer and comedian Anna RUSSELL died Wednesday at 94 in the Australian seaside town of Bateman's Bay -- half a world away from her former home in Unionville, Ontario
"She went very peacefully," her adopted daughter, Dierdre PRUSSAK told reporters in Australia, where her mother had joined her for the last months of her life.
But peaceful is the last word to describe Canadian-born RUSSELL's lively career, which included sold-out performances in New York's Carnegie Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall, and with the Canadian Opera Company -- as well as global tours featuring her own saucy satirical songs and poetry.
"She was somebody who believed that serious music doesn't have to wear a frown," says Toronto Star critic William LITTLER.
A naturalized Canadian, RUSSELL gave farewell performances in her 70s while living in the Unionville retirement community of Heritage Village, adjacent to a street named for her, Anna Russell Way. Married and divorced twice, her second husband was the late Canadian artist Charles GOLDHAMMER.
"I fly a lot… and the airport is closer than it would be if I lived in Toronto," she once told the Star's columnist Lotta DEMPSEY, as she continued a head-spinning schedule of European and American engagements in her golden years.
Born in London, Ontario, of a Canadian mother and a British military officer father, RUSSELL grew up in England lamenting her less-than-perfect looks and voice -- the result of a smashed nose in a field hockey accident while at boarding school.
"Certain notes came out a yodel," she explained, telling of a career that veered from classical to comedic after the voice-altering event. But she went on to study at the elite Royal College of Music, and even snaffled a short and disastrous role in the Pietro Mascagni opera Cavalleria Rusticana.
Her one performance ended when she slipped onstage and crashed against the set, which collapsed. As the orchestra exploded with laughter, RUSSELL was packed off in disgrace. She then debuted as a folk singer on British Broadcasting Corporation radio, and later appeared on Canadian radio in a variety of shows.
She described some of her misadventures in her autobiographical books, The Power of Being a Positive Stinker, and I'm Not Making This Up, You Know.
The latter title was scooped from one of her most famous lines, taken from a breathless half-hour tour de force condensation of Richard Wagner's Ring of the Nibelungs, still used by serious students as a guide to the German composer's masterwork.
But it was in Toronto that RUSSELL got her start, when she returned to Canada with her mother after her father's death at the onset of World War 2.
"She was taken on by Sir Ernest MacMillan for his popular Christmas Box concerts with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra," says LITTLER. "He had a great sense of humour, and he saw her talent right away. She was a big hit."
Like vocal satirist Victor Borge, RUSSELL became a sought-after performer worldwide. Her recordings as well as performances were hailed as gems, and later as classics. In one, RUSSELL accompanied herself on the piano, offering lessons in "how to write your own Gilbert and Sullivan opera." But she also brought down the house during the Cold War with a mock-tragic Russian folk song featuring a chorus of "da, nyet, da, nyet."
In one of her best-known riffs, she explains Wagner's Das Rheingold, in which Erda tells the god Wotan, weiche, weiche -- "be careful. She then bears him eight daughters."
No musical nationality escaped what critics called "her laser-beam sense of humour."
RUSSELL's defiant floor-kicking flamenco dancer and her ultra-virginal British choral soprano delighted European audiences as much as those in Canada. A parody of Bizet's Carmen, with the feisty heroine groping for her deck of fortune-telling cards in her voluminous low-cut bodice, won her standing ovations.
Even RUSSELL's Ring Cycle performance won admiration from the notoriously combative Wagner family, which invited her to perform it at their musical shrine of Bayreuth, and included it in a video of the opera.
Best known for her vocal performances, RUSSELL jokingly described herself as "the Rip Van Winkle of Toronto -- a bit decrepit but not yet passed away."
"I still have one of the great voices of the decayed -- a roar rather than screech, in a comfy basso nonprofundo," she told the Star in 1977.
Her comic opera roles include the Duchess of Crackenthorp in the 1977 Canadian Opera Company production of Daughter of the Regiment, and the witch in Hansel and Gretel at the New York and San Francisco operas.
But RUSSELL also played a variety of instruments, including the piano and ukelele. "She once came on stage with a bagpipe, and took it apart as a lesson on how to play it," recalls LITTLER.
RUSSELL took to the stage, founding Grow Productions, which presented Victorian drama Lady Audley's Secret at the New York World's Fair in 1964, and played a leading role in Noël Coward's comedy Blithe Spirit. Catching a wave of popularity, she composed, wrote and performed her own comedy material for Columbia Records.
RUSSELL's cheeky style won over audiences when she was well into her 70s. Giving advice on how to be a successful singer, she quipped that although a glorious voice was important, "it helps to be an independently wealthy, politically motivated, back-stabbing bitch."
