Born in Stockport, Cheshire, England on October 5, 1930. An accomplished dancer, she was the winner of numerous trophies, medals and certificates for ballet, tap, and musical comedy. She performed professionally in productions in London, England, most notably Snow White, and also in Paris, France, in the early 1950's. Nancy met and married Joe in London, and followed him to Canada where he went on to become the Food and Beverage Manager at the Park Plaza Hotel, and later The Prince Hotel. Nancy, took a job in 1957 with the Ontario Workmen's Compensation Board and had a distinguished career, until her retirement in 1988. One of her most cherished memories of this period of her life, was the active participation in production and direction of the annual staff Christmas show, which benefited from her dancing and musical talents. She is survived by her two nephews. Peter WOODALL living in Valencia, Spain, his daughters Rachel, Michelle and her son Lewis, and their mother and grandmother Stephanie, all in England.

TARKANYI, Nancy Kathleen -- Dispatch:
By Jeffrey HAWKINS, Page M6
Nancy TARKANYI loved to dance. Ballet, ballroom, stage -- you name it, she did it all.
Her elegance and determination even caught the eye of a Life magazine photographer when she was 16 and performing across England with a travelling theatre production of Snow White.
Nancy Kathleen WOODALL was born in Stockport, England, on October 5, 1930, and essentially she lived two successful lives.
In her early life, she enjoyed a career as a performer, winning numerous trophies, medals and certificates during the 1950s for her work in productions staged everywhere from London to Paris.
That was before a young waiter, Joszef TARKANYI, working at a dance club where she was performing, asked her to marry him (she said yes) -- and she emigrated with him to Canada.
Settling in Toronto, Mrs. TARKANYI left behind the theatre for a career at the Ontario Workmen's Compensation Board, where each year she helped to organize elaborate staff Christmas parties that are still fondly remembered.
"She had a way about her that everyone noticed," recalls Josephine LYONS, a cousin of hers.
"She was a very determined and opinionated woman, but she had such elegance in everything she did."
In fact, in the weeks before her death, Mrs. TARKANYI astounded the hospital staff at St. Joseph's Health Centre with her determination, as she continued her daily ritual of leg stretches.
"It must have seemed odd to them, but that's just the kind of confidence she had with herself and her body," said her cousin's husband, Bob LYONS.
Nancy TARKANYI died on February 4. She was 75.

LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Doctor Robert Neil
Dr. R. Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, noted consultant to the pool industry in Canada and the United States, passed suddenly Tuesday, March 28, 2006. The Newmarket, Ontario, resident had just returned home from a day-long session at a Toronto hotel teaching water chemistry to pool operators when he collapsed. He was 67. At the time of his death, Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was serving as principal-in-charge of Lowry and Associates, a nationwide distributor of specialty chemicals which has exclusive representation of Taylor Technologies' water-testing products in Canada; owner and chief educator for the Lowry School of Pool and Spa Chemistry; and a contributing writer and commentator for numerous trade publications, most notably Pool and Spa Marketing magazine. He was an active member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada and the only Canadian voting member of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals' Recreational Water Quality Committee whose water quality guidelines are followed by public pools and spas throughout North and South America. He also served as an advisor to the board of directors of the Professional Pool Operators of America. Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY's ability to make a complicated subject understandable for the average person was coupled with an enthusiasm for his subject matter that most people could not resist, and this made him a sought-after public speaker. Most recently he took part in a panel discussion on preventing recreational water illnesses at the 26th annual Canadian Pool and Spa Conference in Toronto. Said Richard HUBBARD, the Markham, Ontario-based publisher of Pool and Spa Marketing, 'Neil was one of the pool industry's finest and most respected educators, and one of its greatest Friends. He was passionately devoted to elevating the understanding of water chemistry among aquatic facility managers, public health inspectors, and pool builders, service companies, and pool supplies retailers. He always said, 'Over ninety percent of pool problems are caused by poor water chemistry.' Without him, the level of discourse in our industry will be diminished.' His influence on Canada's $1.2-billion-a-year pool and spa industry is pervasive. Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY contributed to the present regulations for public spas under the auspices of the Ontario Ministry of Health. He also designed the model labels for pool products regulated under the federal Pest Control Products Act. He was the original author of 'Pool and Spa Chemistry: A Testing and Treatment Guide,' widely regarded as the Bible of water quality management. Over the course of 26 years, thousands across Canada became certified pool water technicians by his pool school.
Robert Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was born in Windsor, Ontario, to Mac and Marjorie LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and was a loving big brother to David Kent LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and Lynda Jane PARKER. He earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the University of Western Ontario in nearby London; a doctorate in inorganic chemistry from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; and a master's in business administration from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. But Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was no ivory tower academic. He spent the early part of this career with three Canadian chemical companies: first in pool chemical sales at Kert Chemical Industries, Inc., then as pool chemical products manager at Swan Recreational Products Limited, and finally as technical services director for Mursatt Chemicals Limited. He established Lowry and Associates in 1985 with his wife Gabriele as his business partner. Lowry and Associates became the master distributor for Taylor Technologies in Canada in 1989, but the two firms' relationship goes back even further. 'Neil and I worked together for 26 years,' said a saddened Paul WOODEN, president of Taylor. 'He was more than a trusted business associate. He was a good friend to me, and to many others at Taylor. He was an incredibly smart man and so funny! We loved spending time with Neil at the end of a long day at a trade show; he kept us in stitches with his jokes and parlor tricks. His sudden passing has left us all numb with grief.' One of his Friends at Taylor was marketing Vice-President Patricia FITZGERALD. 'Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY had a fierce intellect and a blunt manner of speaking that took some getting used to. He was an avid reader, a student of history, and always up on current events. In a debate of any kind he took no prisoners. But if he had the roar of a lion, he also had the heart,' FITZGERALD reminisced. 'I will miss him greatly.' He met Gabriele ADELMANN in Boston, Masssachusetts, and the pair married shortly thereafter in July 1972. While growing their business together they also grew a family, producing sons Michael and Derek, now ages 30 and 28 respectively, and daughter Sarah, age 17. He was a devoted husband and father. When Mackenzie, 3, Andrew, 18 months, and Erik, 1 month, were born to Michael and his wife Jennifer, the grandchildren became his pride and joy. Derek LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and his spouse Sheila STARRETT are both involved in running Lowry and Associates; Michael LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY too is following in his father's footsteps by being a part of the industry. 'We all have not only lost a loving husband, father and grandfather we have also lost our very best friend.' A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 3rd, at the Old Mill Inn, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto, in the Brule A Room on the first floor (416-236-2641). All Friends and colleagues are welcome. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the First Church of Christ Scientist, Etobicoke, where Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was a member. Arrangements entrusted to the Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, Newmarket, (905-895-6631), www.roadhouseandrose.com.
