WRIGHT, Don
In loving memory of our dad and pah, who passed away 10 years ago, March 21, 1996.
Dad… so many images come to mind whenever I speak your name
It seems without you in my life, things have never been the same.
What happened to all those times when I always looked to you
No matter what happened in my you could make my gray skies blue.
Dad, who will I turn to for answers when life does not make sense
Who will be there to hold me close when the pieces just don't fit
Please know I love you and no one can take your place
Years may come and go but your memory will never be erased.
Today, Jesus, as You are listening in Your home above
Would you go and find my Dad and give him all our love.
-Forever loved and missed by Your Family.

WRIGHT--In loving memory of Thomas Wright, February 22, 2005.
Papa Tom
It's been one year now
Since you've been gone
Our love for you
Still lingers on
You are still with us
Yes, that's how it seems
You still bring us joy
In our thoughts and our dreams
We think of you often
Almost every day
Our love for you
Is here to stay
We like to think
We like to say
We love you more
Each and every day
Some days it's hard
Some days it's not
All of the memories
We love them a lot
Some days we laugh
Some days we cry
We feel this way
It's love, that's why
We know you're safe
Yes that is why
We like to think
As we look at the sky
We look up high
We look and smile
We know deep down inside
We will see you in a while.
Lovingly remembered and sadly missed, grandkids Rhonda and Pat and family, Rodney and Stacey and family, Tania.

WRIGHT--In loving memory of Thomas Wright (Dad,) February 22, 2005.
I thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new,
I thought about you yesterday
And the days before that too.
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name.
Now all I have is memories
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake
With which I'll never part
God has you in his keeping
And Dad, I have you in my heart.
Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by Tammy and B.J. LaFleur.

WRIGHT--In loving memory of my great Papa Tom Wright, February 22, 2005.
One year ago on this day
God came to earth and took you away.
Three weeks later I was born
My birth they celebrated, your death they mourned.
You told my mommy before you died
That you'd be gone before I arrived.
But you still see me so not to cry.
I'm 11 months old now, my birthday's soon
And I know you'll be there, an angel in the room.
As I get older it may hurt me to know
That I never got to meet you
Or learn what you know.
But still I'll be happy and hold my head high
Cause now you're my guardian angel
Sending me love from the sky.
Love always, Baby Emile Heather Alvira Moore. xo

Car dealer respected by customers, competitors
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter, Sun., April 2, 2006
Bill CHAMBERS was not your stereotypical, smooth-talking car salesperson.
But his quiet confidence, honesty and laid-back demeanour made him a staple in the local auto sales business for more than 50 years.
The owner of Nilestown Auto Sales -- formerly Bill Chambers Chev-Olds died March 19 at 65.
"My dad built Friendships as much as he did business relationships," Jeff CHAMBERS said.
"He enjoyed working with cars and he enjoyed working with people."
CHAMBERS, born and raised in the Dorchester area, began working in his father's auto sales shop as a teen, Jeff said.
He pumped gas and helped fix and sell cars before inheriting the family business in 1974, when his father died.
The softspoken salesperson continued the family tradition of treating clients with respect and fairness, which helped him keep loyal customers.
"There are families here that dealt with my grandfather and then with my father and then with me," said Jeff, who also worked at the business.
Even though the small dealership never kept more than 15 new and used cars on the lot at one time, Jeff said his dad sold thousands of vehicles during his career.
"He was all about the low-pressure sales tactic and giving people a fair deal," he said. "He was very well known and respected for that."
Arlene WRIGHT, a former GM dealer in Thamesford, said CHAMBERS was well-liked among his business associates.
"Every dealer that knew him just thought the world of him," WRIGHT said.
"He was honest, straightforward and trustworthy."
CHAMBERS, who downsized his own operation in recent years, was supportive when WRIGHT's 55-year-old family dealership closed, she said.
"When I had to make that decision to shut down, Bill was the first person I went to and he just walked me through everything," she said. "He was like a father."
WRIGHT said CHAMBERS' lengthy career in the auto business -- especially in recent years, when small shops were increasingly forced to compete with big dealers -- was a major achievement.
"To survive in that business for so long really says something about a person," she said. "It definitely means you're doing something right."

WRIGHT, Donald "Don" John Alexander, B.A., D.M., L.M., Member of Order of Canada
Don passed away peacefully at his home in Toronto after a brief illness on June 27th, 2006 in his 98th year. His beloved wife Lillian, his life partner and best friend, predeceased him on January 12, 1993. Sadly missed and fondly remembered by his sister Dr. Mary Jean WRIGHT of London, Ontario, son Timothy and his wife Sharon (née EMPRINGHAM) of Sarnia, daughter Priscilla of Toronto, son Patrick (predeceased in 1993), grand_sons and granddaughters Christopher and his wife Katrin (née ZEUNER) of Toronto, Brian and his wife Susan (née PRINCE) of Australia, Pamela WHITTAKER of Delaware, Ontario, Liam and his wife Louise of Toronto, Alyssa of Cannington and Doctor Tarah and her husband Daniel of Halifax, great-grand_sons Connor, Kyle, Corwin, Benjamin and Aidan, and great-granddaughters Cassidy and Lilly. Don really lived a charmed life. He was born in Strathroy, Ontario to Ernest and Jean (nee CLARK) WRIGHT in 1908. He had three brothers and a sister Doctor Mary WRIGHT. The family was very involved in theatre and music and the boys formed the "Wright Brothers Orchestra" which had a great following during their school years and on through university. Don met his "Lilly Belle" (Lillian (née MEIGHEN,) the daughter of the Right Honourable Arthur MEIGHEN and his wife Isabel (nee COX) at one of the dances and the rest was history. They courted each other for their entire lives together. At the University of Western Ontario, Don started the U.W.O. marching band -- an institution that continues to this day. He was a very successful athlete as a sprinter, high hurdler and his long jump record of twenty-three feet, eight inches held for over a quarter century. Don taught music, history, Latin and Greek for several years at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate in London and all of his classes were over-subscribed. His pedagogical talents were prodigious and his former pupils still rave about his classes more than 60 years after he taught them. Don became supervisor of music for the London Board of Education and from there he was recruited to take over the reins of CFPL Radio. He completely remodeled the studios and control rooms and simultaneously brought new and exciting programming to life. He increased the audience levels many times over. His " CFPL Goes Calling" brought many talented people (both musical and other forms of radio entertainment) onto the airwaves. Such voices as Max Ferguson (Rawhide), Ward Cornell, John Tretheway and Murray Brown were all brought into CFPL by Don. His outstanding creation while there was his "Don Wright Chorus" which entranced audiences throughout both Canada and the U.S. all through the early 1950s. Don moved to Toronto in 1955 and continued his advertising "jingle" business in addition to being Musical Director for the Denny Vaughn Show, Wayne and Schuster and the Cliff McKey show "Holiday Ranch". He developed a new radio choir called the Don Wright Singers which performed for several years. As his career matured he composed a series of provincial anthems presented in a performance package called "Proudly we Praise", a tribute to Canada, which could be performed by professionals or amateurs, and Don was very proud to be asked to arrange and conduct a performance of this work on Parliament Hill on Canada's Centennial for Queen Elizabeth II. Don's philanthropy in later years was generous and impressive. He donated to track and field endeavours and musical programmes at many universities across Canada. He received several Honourary Doctorates from Canadian Universities for these efforts, and the faculties of music at U.W.O. and Victoria University bear his name. Grace Hospital in Toronto as well as Saint Michael's Hospital's maternity centres bear his and Lillian's names. A celebration of his life will be held in Saint_James Cathedral, 65 Church Street, (at King Street East) Toronto on Thursday, July 6th at 11 o'clock. A reception will follow. Private entombment in the family niche at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Please direct any donations to the charity of your choice. Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles Chapel 416-487-4523

WRIGHT, George Vernon " Vern"
Died on Tuesday, March 14, 2006. Born February 16, 1919 marking the beginning of a much travelled, interesting and fulfilling life. He was the loving and proud husband for fifty nine years of the late Edith (2003) and the father of Mark S. Wright of Aurora, Ontario. Survived also by grandchildren Daniel and Caitlin and two sisters and a brother. Except for five years in the military during the war, he spent his entire working life with the Royal Bank commencing in the town of Comber, near Windsor and served in other Ontario locations such as Essex, Windsor, Port Dover, Cookstown, Elmira, Toronto, Hamilton, Burlington and in Montreal. Additionally, he spent four years on an International assignment in Europe operating from London, England and later a four year stint in the Far East while stationed in Tokyo, Japan. By choice he retired in St. Catharines, where both he and his late wife were happy, proud citizens of the city and its environs. They treasured their membership in the St. Catharines Golf Club, enjoying the game and the fellowship with other members over many years. He entered this world quietly and being a rather unassuming person it was his wish to depart without fuss or ceremony. Consequently, the celebration of his demise will be a private family affair. Cremation has taken place and he will be placed alongside those of this beloved wife Edith, together forever, at Pleasantview Memorial Gardens Fonthill. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Alzheimers Society would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Niagara St. Chapel of Butler Funeral Home (905) 646-6322.

COOPER, Marjorie Helen (née LICK)
Left us on March 28th in her 81st year. She passed on in peace and dignity at her Toronto home in the loving care of her family and Friends. Her family caregivers extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Giovanna SIRIANNI, Heather WHALEN, Marlene CARSCALLEN and Heather McLEAN for helping her through a mercifully brief and intense battle with cancer. Born in Calgary, educated at the Universities of Toronto, Ottawa and Carleton, Marjorie was known and admired for her elegance, intellect, dry wit and peaceful spirit. Betrayed by her body, her sharp mind continued her daily ritual of completing the Globe and Mail crossword puzzle until two days before she died. She also was able to enjoy most of the televised World Championships in both skating and curling. Marjorie is predeceased by Bill COOPER, her husband of 54 years, her brother Gordon LICK of Ottawa and her daughter Margaret CRAY of Holland Landing. She leaves four children, Ian (Toronto), Doug (Powell River, British Columbia), Judy EAST (Calais, Maine), Kathy (Lindsay, Ontario), and eleven grandchildren, Valery, Alexander and Patrick COOPER, Mathew, Devon and Caitlynn PIANOSI, Graham and Heather CRAY, Jocelyn COOPER, Merryn LUSH and Alyson EAST. She is also survived by her daughters-in-law, Karen COOPER (nee PIANOSI,) Kate SAUNDERS, Sandra WRIGHT and sons-in-law, Paul CRAY, Richard EAST and Stuart LUSH. She lived a rich, full life that had its share of both great joy and extreme hardships. A scholarship at the age of 16 took her to Trois Pistolles, Quebec for a French immersion experience, the memory of which she treasured ever after. She met Bill in 1941 on one of many hiking and cycling expeditions in the Canadian Youth Hostelling Association. She shared Bill's keen advocacy for the Canadian Youth Hostelling Association and hosted a chuckwagon-style Canadian Youth Hostelling Association information booth at the Calgary Stampede of 1942. Marjorie served in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Women's Division working in Halifax during the war. With Bill and four other Friends, she went on a cycling expedition to New England in 1946 visiting Boston and Cape Cod. They were married in 1948 after both completed university. Her professional career included teaching sociology at the University of Toronto and she served as Registrar of Erindale College (now Utah, Mississauga) for many years, a job that she found deeply fulfilling especially when she knew she had helped students make difficult choices in their lives. After her retirement she focused on a quiet life of spiritual questing and fulfillment and never missed the full season of the Canadian Opera Company. Her community of Friends of Grace Church on-the-Hill meant the world to her. At Grace Church she was a member of the Altar Guild, the Cariboo Group, the Adult Christian Education Committee and she was the founder and moving spirit of The Book and Film Club. Serving as librarian, she was instrumental in the development and maintenance of the Church library. Her spiritual path also led her to become an oblate with the Sisters of St. Benedict in Erie, Pennsylvania. Her many contributions to the Church were recognized last Spring in the Award for Meritorious Service, an honour that, very quietly, gave her great pride. Funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 1, 2006, 11 a.m., Grace Church On-The-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Road with luncheon and reception to follow in the Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, Mount Sinai Hospital or the Palliative Care Unit at South Lake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket where her daughter received such excellent care.

WRIGHT, Frank Edwin (1917-2006)
Grand Old Man Of Rugby
Frank Edwin WRIGHT of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, April 5, 2006 at the age of 88 years. 'I was born and raised in King Williams Town, South Africa, which was founded by the 1820 British soldiers on the banks of the Buffalo River. It was an ideal spot with plenty of water, lumber and blue granite. I remember the Holy Trinity Church so well. It is still a majestic structure, well over 150 years old. There I attended Sunday School and eventually became confirmed. How I liked to go to King's market and buy some nice fresh cream to go with the abundance of fresh fruit that supplemented the great variety that grew in our own back garden. There were grapes, guavas, custard apples, figs and pomegranates. We grew everyday vegetables like potatoes, carrots, cabbage and nice lettuce. It was so that one could plant all year around, a good life, indeed. I am proud to have attended Dale College as a 'day pot' meaning a local resident and that is where I developed my love of rugby. It seemed all too soon after graduating from Dale that we found ourselves in uniform and in the Middle East in North Africa. We endured some trying times during 4 years in Prisoner of War camps, first under Italian command and then German. After the war, I was sent to London where I met a beautiful Canadian woman, Irma TOTH. I was successful in persuading her to follow me to South Africa where we were married. We had three children: Frances (Richard POOTMANS,) Kay and Les (Verna.) As my wife pined for her beloved Canada, we decided to move, arriving here in the fall of 1953. Shortly after arriving, several like-minded rugby aficionados got together, placed an ad in the newspaper and were able to locate enough 'foreigners' to form two sides. Rugby was officially introduced to Calgarians! Dad spent his entire life playing and working in various capacities on the local, provincial and national level to promote and grow the game he so dearly loved. A cub leader, the treasurer and enthusiastic campaigner for many years of both provincial and federal Liberal constituencies and candidates, a member of the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and also a recipient of the Queen's Jubilee Medal. Father also enjoyed golf and curling and the time spent with his colleagues at B.A. Oil and Gulf Oil. He was an accomplished writer, the author of many stories and poems penned for the amusement of his rugby buddies. Although he would not win any awards for his vocal performances (other then for his enthusiasm), he loved to sing. He was a good husband, a kind father and the proud grandfather of Becky and Adam. The loss of Irma in October 2003 was eased by the new family of Friends he developed at the Manor at Garrison Woods where he resided for the past several years. He valued these Friendships and the camaraderie to the end. He will be greatly missed by family, including Alice and Fred CRICK, and Peg and Rod RODWAY, his large and beloved 'Bokkie' family and his many Friends world wide. A Celebration of Life will be held at McInnis and Holloway'S, Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Monday, April 10, 2006 at 7: 00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Our thanks to the wonderful paramedics, his doctors and nurses in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at the Foothills Medical Centre and Doctor Kozak at the Rockyview General Hospital. In living memory of Frank WRIGHT, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W., Calgary, Alberta T2S 2L5.

Mark FARRELL, Newspaper Publisher (1913-2006)
Controversial top man at The Windsor Star and the Montreal Gazette was never reluctant to skewer sacred cows, but always remained a stickler for truth and integrity
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- Mark FARRELL arrived as publisher of The Windsor Star in 1969, driving a green Volkswagen Beetle festooned with flower decals. His young daughters, who put them on, had assured him they would easily wash off. They didn't, and the splashy foreign car, in the home of Chrysler Canada, was to become a symbol of a brash new direction for the previously staid newspaper.
During his four years in Windsor, Mr. FARRELL gave the Star's editorial support to the New Democratic Party in the 1972 federal election, the first time any Canadian newspaper had endorsed the party, and organized one of the country's first press councils.
As publisher of the Montreal Gazette, from late 1972 to 1977, he supported language rights for French-speaking Quebeckers and encouraged an era of award-winning investigative journalism. Earlier in his career, he supervised the building of Canada's largest rotogravure printing plant for Standard Publishing in Montreal, and played a key role in creating two of the most-read publications in the country's history, Weekend and Perspectives magazines.
A left-leaning social democrat from his days at McGill University, Mark FARRELL was never reluctant to skewer sacred cows, but was a stickler for truth and integrity. He lived with a stammer he could not control, but never allowed it to hold him back. In his personal time, he was an avid outdoorsman and expert skier, a caring family man and a lover of black poodles.
"Mark was every reporter's dream of what a publisher should be," says Tim Creery, editorial page editor of the Montreal Gazette under Mr. FARRELL. "He stood up to advertising and political pressure on editorial content. He applauded vigorous and deep-digging reporting. He encouraged outspoken editorials favouring the interests of ordinary people and denouncing privilege."
The second of four sons of Montreal stockbroker Gerald FARRELL and the former Eileen O'MEARA, Mark FARRELL was born into money. When he was 6, his father died. The boy attended Selwyn House, a private school in Montreal for a few years until his mother moved the family to England, where he and two brothers went to Ampleforth College, a prestigious Catholic boys' boarding school that their father had attended. In his unpublished memoirs, written with Mr. Creery's assistance, Mr. FARRELL described being the only boy since the school started to receive a caning of 13 strokes.
Returning to Canada, he earned a commerce degree at McGill University, yet the only diploma he ever posted on his office wall was from a six-week sociology course at Moscow University's American Institute. During the Depression, he turned a $5,000 inheritance into nearly $20,000 on the stock market and then lost it all. At the same time, he worked for free as managing editor of Canadian Forum, a left-leaning intellectual magazine, and as treasurer of the Ontario branch of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, the predecessor of the New Democratic Party.
After becoming a chartered accountant, he was hired as promotion manager at Montreal Standard Publishing Co. He married his first wife, Joanna WRIGHT, on the eve of the Second World War, but was turned down by the military because of his stammer. Instead, he worked for the British Air Commission in New York, where he became internal auditor and signed cheques totalling $1.5-billion for British purchases of U.S. aircraft and supplies. Returning to Standard Publishing, he became a director and the right-hand man of John McConnell, son of owner J.W. McConnell.
At Standard, he supervised the construction of a state-of-the-art rotogravure printing plant and helped found Weekend and Perspectives, weekly English and French magazines that were carried in Saturday editions of newspapers across the country. Their combined circulation of 2.5-million was a Canadian record.
After separating from his first wife in the late 1940s, Mr. FARRELL married Florence WALL, a Weekend employee, in 1952. In 1969, Mr. FARRELL was hired to run The Windsor Star after two members of the owning GRAYBIEL family died in quick succession. According to his memoirs, he accepted the offer, which he had previously turned down, after being squeezed out in a power struggle at Standard Publishing. Told to act as through he owned The Windsor Star, he redesigned its layout, sponsored a regular broadcast on U.S. Public Television in Detroit to tell Americans about Canada, and made Peter BENESH, an immigrant from Czechoslovakia, a member of the editorial board at the age of 23. Mr. BENESH recalls his boss regularly quoting H.L. Mencken's adage: "A journalist's job is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable."
While at the Star in 1971, Mr. FARRELL set up a press council to consider local complaints. It became the model for the Ontario Press Council. He also led a successful editorial campaign to bring Windsor's U.S.-owned CKLW radio station into Canadian hands, says Hugh NANGLE, who served under Mr. FARRELL on the editorial boards in both Windsor and Montreal. In 1972, the Southam newspaper chain transferred Mr. FARRELL to Montreal.
Under Mr. FARRELL, The Windsor Star was the first large daily to support the New Democratic Party in a federal election, and the first to call for legalization of marijuana and abortion, Mr. NANGLE says. Mr. FARRELL also curtailed the influence of the Liberal Party over The Windsor Star and of the Conservative Party over the Gazette, he says. Under Mr. FARRELL, the Gazette supported the aspirations of Quebec nationalists, but not calls for separation.
"He was a patrician and had the air of a patrician," says Henry Aubin, an award-winning investigative reporter under Mr. FARRELL and now a Gazette columnist. "He could take on the anglo establishment as one of their own on equal terms. He could have been one of the boys." Mr. Aubin credits Mr. FARRELL with supporting investigative reporting and helping the staff set up a code of ethics for reporters.
Mr. FARRELL had a showdown with The Windsor Star's mechanical unions in 1970, when they staged a two-week sit-in strike in the pressroom. According to James BRUCE, then assistant city editor and later the Star's editor and publisher, Mr. FARRELL staged a sit-in of his own by staying in his office. Publication resumed in two weeks, thanks to a federal labour mediator.
A Time magazine article from the mid-seventies called the Gazette "Canada's most improved newspaper," thanks to Mr. FARRELL and his predecessor, Denis Harvey. It credited Mr. FARRELL with increasing the news budget by 40 per cent in two years, adding editorial staff and hiring managing editor Lindsay Crysler, who launched an era of investigative journalism, and Tim Creery, who gave the editorial and op-ed pages "some bite."
Terry Mosher, the Gazette's editorial cartoonist who signs his drawings Aislin, says Mr. FARRELL gave permission for him to run some controversial pieces early in his career. One of the Queen resulted in the publication of three days of angry letters from readers. Mr. FARRELL left the Gazette in 1977, moving with his wife to a ski property in Stowe, Vt. Later, they moved to Morrisville, Vt. In his retirement, he continued his passion for downhill skiing until 85. His greatest thrill came in 1970, when he did Switzerland's Haute Route, a hut-to-hut trek that involves downhill and cross-country skiing and climbing. Mr. FARRELL talked about social issues even at home, says Willa FARRELL, the youngest of his three daughters. When she was a child, she recalls him lamenting that the newspaper industry was built on the child labour of carrier boys.
Norman Redlich, a former dean of law at New York University and a long-time vacation friend in Vermont, says Mr. FARRELL once told him that the U.S. First Amendment protecting freedom of the press is an old whore that should be retired. "His point was: If you can't verify it, don't print it," Mr. Redlich says. "I've always thought it was an excellent thing for a publisher to say."
Mark FARRELL was born in Montreal on January 22, 1913.
He died of pneumonia on April 6, 2006, in Morrisville, Vt. He was 93. He is survived by his wife, Florence, and their daughters Fiona FARRELL and Willa FARRELL.
He also leaves Sally KININMONTH, his daughter from his marriage to Joanna WRIGHT, several grandchildren and his brother, Charles. An infant son, Mark, died after one day in 1957.

DICKSON/DIXON, Joyce Ethel
Joyce DICKSON/DIXON died peacefully at St. Boniface Hospital, Sunday night, April 23, 2006. Paralyzed on her right side by a stroke, Joyce spent the last two years at Misericordia Health Centre. Predeceased in 1981 by her twin sister, Gladys SIM of Ontario. Because of her poor eyesight, Joyce went directly to normal school after graduating from Gordon Bell High School. She began her teaching career in Dugald, Manitoba and immediately took education courses by correspondence. Joyce traveled many times to Europe during the summer holidays, and over the years taught in several elementary schools in Winnipeg. Her last school was Laura Secord. During her lifetime she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Ottawa, a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Manitoba and a Master of Education from the University of Toronto. After the death of her twin, Joyce took early retirement. Whenever she was shopping or visiting in different areas of the city, she was constantly approached by young women and men, who would rush to speak to her, "Do you remember me? I was in you Grade 4 class! You were my teacher!" Cards and letters often came from some of her former pupils and that pleased her a great deal. Since 1940, Joyce worshipped at First Presbyterian Church where she made many Friends and experienced a variety of ministers. Joyce was also a devoted member of the University Women's Club of Winnipeg where she especially appreciated the desserts that were served at Drop-In lunches. If any of her Friends or former pupils would like to do something in her honour, Joyce makes a special request. No flowers and no gifts to charities. "What I would really like is that you befriend a youngster or two in your neighbourhood. Support that child or those children, remember their birthdays, listen to their stories, get to know their families, and enjoy the reactions you will receive." Joyce leaves to mourn her sister Rev. Dr. Irene J. DICKSON/DIXON; her cousins Clifford (Marceline) PESHAL, in Lindsay, Ontario; Grace SEGERKVIST in Sault Ste. Marie; and Mavis WRIGHT (Steve) in Nevada, U.S.A. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, April 26 at 10: 00 a.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue, and the service will be conducted by Joyce's friend, the Reverend Amy CAMPBELL. Family and Friends are invited to sign the Book of Condolence at www.chapellawn.mb.ca Chapel Lawn Funeral Home and Reception Centre 204-885-9715.

WRIGHT, Norman Stanley
At peace on Thursday, June 22, 2006 at the age of 84, exactly 3 years after his beloved wife Isobel. Norman was a very proud and loving Nonno for Isabella Maria and Matthew Norman, a loving father to Joanne and Andrew, and father-in-law to Wayne and Silvy. He will be missed dearly by his family and Friends here and in England. Originally from Keighley, Yorkshire, Norm served in the British Army during World War 2 seeing action in North Africa, the Middle East and Italy. After the war, he followed Isobel, her mother, Ted, and sister, Bobbie, to begin a new life in Toronto and on Georgian Bay. With his keen interest in jazz (and Manhattans), he placed a cryptic classified ad in a local newspaper seeking like- minded enthusiasts. The resulting group met regularly over 25 years as "The Jazz Club". A man of impeccable ethics, he was a partner at Harris and Wright, Chartered Accounts, for over 40 years. He maintained his razor sharp wit throughout and faced his death with a typical British stiff upper lip. A memorial service will be held at The York Cemetery Chapel and Reception Centre, 130 Beecroft Road, North York, 416-221-3404 on Sunday June 25, 2006, in the chapel at 12 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the North York General Hospital, would be appreciated.

Don passed away peacefully at his home in Toronto after a brief illness on June 27th, 2006 in his 98th year. His beloved wife Lillian, his life partner and best friend, predeceased him on January 12, 1993. Sadly missed and fondly remembered by his sister Dr. Mary Jean WRIGHT of London, Ontario, son Timothy and his wife Sharon (née EMPRINGHAM) of Sarnia, daughter Priscilla of Toronto, son Patrick (predeceased in 1993), grand_sons and granddaughters Christopher and his wife Katrin (née ZEUNER) of Toronto, Brian and his wife Susan (née PRINCE) of Australia, Liam and his wife Louise of Toronto, Alyssa of Cannington and Tarah and her husband Daniel of Halifax, great-grand_sons Connor, Kyle, Corwin, Benjamin and Aidan, and great-granddaughters Cassidy and Lilly. Don really lived a charmed life. He was born in Strathroy, Ontario to Ernest and Jean (née CLARK) WRIGHT in 1908. He had three brothers and a sister Doctor Mary WRIGHT. The family was very involved in theatre and music and the boys formed the "Wright Brothers Orchestra" which had a great following during their school years and on through university. Don met his "Lilly Belle" (Lillian (née MEIGHEN,) the daughter of the Right Honourable Arthur MEIGHEN and his wife Isabel (née COX) at one of the dances and the rest was history. They courted each other for their entire lives together. At the University of Western Ontario, Don started the U.W.O. marching band - an institution that continues to this day. He was a very successful athlete as a sprinter, high hurdler and his long jump record of twenty-three feet, eight inches held for over a quarter century. Don taught music, history, Latin and Greek for several years at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate in London and all of his classes were over-subscribed. His pedagogical talents were prodigious and his former pupils still rave about his classes more than 60 years after he taught them.

Such voices as Max Ferguson (Rawhide), Ward Cornell, John Tretheway and Murray Brown were all brought into CFPL by Don. His outstanding creation while there was his "Don Wright Chorus" which entranced audiences throughout both Canada and the U.S. all through the early 1950s. Don moved to Toronto in 1955 and continued his advertising "jingle" business in addition to being Musical Director for the Denny Vaughn Show, Wayne and Schuster and the Cliff McKey show "Holiday Ranch". He developed a new radio choir called the Don Wright Singers which performed for several years. As his career matured he composed a series of provincial anthems presented in a performance package called "Proudly we Praise", a tribute to Canada, which could be performed by professionals or amateurs, and Don was very proud to be asked to arrange and conduct a performance of this work on Parliament Hill on Canada's Centennial for Queen Elizabeth II.

Don WRIGHT, Musician And Teacher (1908-2006)
Composer wrote jingles for products from Bromo-Seltzer to Coffee Crisp and formed a charitable foundation that endowed music faculties and athletic programs across Canada, Sandra MARTIN writes
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Known as the jingle king for writing the words and music for hundreds of commercials for products such as Bromo-Seltzer (his daughter Priscilla sang the vocals), Carling's Red Cap Ale, Tide, Kelvinator and Coffee Crisp, Don WRIGHT was a natural showman and educator, and a very talented musician. As a teenager, he played the trumpet in The Wright Brothers Orchestra, a dance band started by his father. Later, he founded both the Don Wright Chorus and the Don Wright Singers, and composed and conducted music for radio, television and documentary films.
Prodigiously hard-working, Mr. WRIGHT amassed many millions of dollars in a long and productive life, from royalties, wise investments and the cushion provided by his beloved wife Lillian's inheritance from her father, former prime minister Sir Arthur MEIGHEN. He had a motto: "He who gives while he lives also knows where it goes." Since forming the Don Wright Charitable Foundation, in 1966, he had been true to that adage by endowing music faculties and athletic programs at universities across the country, funding hospital maternity wings in honour of his wife's love of babies, as well as giving $3-million to his alma mater, the University of Western Ontario.
Donald John Alexander WRIGHT was one of five children (four boys and a girl) of Ernest Joel (Ernie) and Mary Jean (Mamie) WRIGHT from Strathroy, Ontario The WRIGHTs had emigrated from Exeter in England in the 1850s, not long before Mamie's parents, the Clarks, had arrived from Scotland.
Ernie loved to sing and act in minstrel shows and Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. At 18, he was spotted by scouts from a New York company who invited him to move to the United States to become a professional actor. His father's stern disapproval made him decline the offer. Instead, he opened a store in Strathroy, selling pianos and other musical instruments, and founded his own piano-manufacturing company in 1907, which flourished until the mid-1920s when the factory burned down.
Mamie also loved to sing and play the piano, and is said to have taught her four sons a new song every week before they were old enough to go to school. Donald sang in public, "right on key," at the age of 2, and then climbed on his proud mother's lap and went to sleep, according to a family memoir written by Mr. WRIGHT's sister, Mary Jean WRIGHT, an emeritus professor of psychology at University of Western Ontario.
Donald joined the church choir before he could read, having been taught the words of the processional and recessional hymns by his mother, and had taught himself to play the trumpet by the time he was 10.
His father Ernie organized garden parties to promote his pianos and to showcase his sons and himself as entertainers. They were so good that the family was hired to tour the garden-party circuit, offering one-hour concerts in 20-minute segments. Donald was also studying the cello with Howard GORDON, who had once played with the Edinburgh Symphony. At 14, Donald won the gold medal in a nationwide competition held at Massey Hall in Toronto. The same year, he and his three brothers put together a five-piece dance band (with Donald on the trumpet) and landed a gig playing for open-air dancing at nearby Brights Grove.
Young Donald was an exemplary student, but he did have some foibles. A sleepwalker, he got up one night, left the house and walked across the street to a neighbour's house -- unconsciously. He also couldn't stand the ticking of an alarm clock, and would scream "stop the clock" in the middle of the night until somebody found the offending instrument and buried it in the laundry hamper in the bathroom. In high school, he excelled in track and field, winning the regional track championships in 1928 and 1929. And he scored high marks academically until his fifth year of high school, when he and a friend made a pact to do absolutely no work, failed all their exams and had to repeat the year. Waking up, at least figuratively, Mr. WRIGHT realized that if he wanted to study honours classics at university, he needed Greek, so he mastered the four-year Greek curriculum with a tutor and earned an entrance scholarship to University of Western Ontario in 1929.
He kept his scholarship through four years of undergraduate work, graduating in 1933 with the Ferguson Trophy. As an athlete, he reigned supreme in the hurdles and set a broad-jump record that stood for more than 40 years. Meanwhile, he was hyperactive musically, leading the university orchestra, starting the marching band and arranging all the music, and serving as musical director for The Wright Brothers Orchestra.
At its peak, the dance band had nine players, travelled in its own van and played summer resorts in Port Elgin and then in Hamilton. Real life intruded in 1934, when Ernest, the second brother, was called to the bar and was told by a senior barrister in his firm that it was not on for a lawyer to play in a dance band. By then, Donald WRIGHT had graduated from the Ontario College of Education and had accepted a teaching job beginning that September at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate in London. His employers also looked askance at his musical sideline. Besides, during the Depression, it was frowned upon to hold more than one paying job.
He met Lillian MEIGHEN, his future wife, in the summer of 1930 at the old Embassy night club in Toronto. Mr. WRIGHT and his brothers were playing, she was there dancing with Friends. As Mr. WRIGHT's sister tells the story, Ms. MEIGHEN fell in love with the trumpet player and persuaded her brother Max, a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity (as were three of the WRIGHT brothers,) to bring his "fraternal" brother home so she could meet him.
They were married five years later, after a thorough vetting by her father, who took his daughter on a long trip to Australia to separate the lovers and withheld his consent for the nuptials until Mr. WRIGHT had taught for a year and saved $1,000. The couple lived in London, where their three children were born, until they moved to Toronto in 1956, buying a large house on Chestnut Park Road where Mr. WRIGHT continued to live after his wife died of Alzheimer's disease in 1993.
As a schoolteacher, Mr. WRIGHT was hired to instruct students in classics and history and to promote music in the school. The challenge was to encourage children not only to sing, but to do it with enthusiasm and in harmony. Mr. WRIGHT put his innovative ideas into a series of manuals outlining his techniques for arranging music for the changing voice, and eventually gave copies to every high school in Ontario, at his own cost. He also organized and conducted a school orchestra and a glee club at Sir Adam Beck, all of which led to an invitation in 1940 to become director of music for all London schools, a position he held until 1946.
Mr. WRIGHT tried to enlist when the Second World War erupted, but instead of being sent overseas he was commanded to put on shows to entertain the troops at their training centres. For the next six years, in addition to his "day" job, he and his army of volunteers mounted three shows a week, never putting on the same program twice in the same place, with Mr. WRIGHT planning the performances, writing the music and conducting the musicians.
When the war ended, he gave up teaching and became manager of radio station CFPL in London, where he hugely improved the ratings and developed a staff orchestra and choir known as the Don Wright Chorus. In 1950, he went out on his own, founding Don Wright Productions. His chorus was soon being heard on major radio networks here and in the United States, and he expanded his interest in music education by publishing Youthful Voices and other manuals, and giving workshops in many cities on both sides of the border.
He moved into television big time in the 1950s, writing jingles for commercials, founding the Don Wright Singers, serving as musical director for The Denny Vaughn Show, Cliff McKay's Holiday Ranch and The Wayne and Shuster Show, and composing the music for several documentary films including A Day to Remember and The Unknown Country. All this creative and frenetic activity came to a halt in December, 1961, when he suffered a heart attack that forced him to convalesce for three months and then to ease his workload -- somewhat.
When the Queen came to Canada in centennial year, Mr. WRIGHT composed, produced and conducted a medley of songs entitled Proudly We Praise, highlighting each province and territory, for the two-day celebrations on Parliament Hill on June 30 and July 1. He was congratulated by the Queen and given the Centennial Medal.
His last major publication was a 20-volume thesaurus entitled Fifty Years of Music with Don Wright. He donated copies to teachers' colleges and universities across Canada.
Donald John Alexander WRIGHT was born in Strathroy, Ontario, on September 6, 1908. He died at home in Toronto on June 27, after a brief illness. He was 97. Predeceased by his wife Lillian and his son Patrick, he is survived by his children Timothy and Priscilla, several grandchildren and great grandchildren, his sister Mary Jean and his extended family. His life will be celebrated at Saint_James Cathedral in Toronto on Thursday at 11 a.m.

PARKINSON, Dale Alwyn George
It is with great sorrow we announce the unexpected death of Dale Alwyn George PARKINSON on November 27, 2006.

Dale is also survived by his grandchildren Eden, Abigail and Benjamin MONKS, his stepgrandchildren Ryan PAYNE, Denise and Reed MONKS and his special friend Ingeborg KOOL. He was predeceased by his father George PARKINSON, his mother, Alicia PARKINSON and his brother Dion PARKINSON. Dale was born on September 2, 1941, in Rochdale, England. He lived his early years in Duff, Saskatchewan, and never lost his love of the prairies. He moved to Winnipeg with his family at 12 years old and eventually graduated from the University of Manitoba as a Chartered Accountant in 1967. His career at Investors Group spanned four decades where his dedication, hard work and integrity resulted in many appointments until he retired from the position of Executive Vice-President, Investors Group Inc., in 1999. He continued to serve the company as a consultant, Chairman of the Board and Director of Investors Group Trust Co., and President and Director I.G. Resources Inc. Dale was also currently Chairman of the Board, The International Scholarship Foundation, Committee Chair of the Audit, Finance and Risk Management Committee and member of the Governance, Investment, Educational Policy and Scholarship IT Strategy Committees.

Dale was also currently Director and Vice-President and Lifetime Sponsor of the National Board of Ducks Unlimited, Cda. Dale also dedicated a great deal of his time to serving his community including the United Way, Hospice, Ducks Unlimited, and Assiniboine Park Rangers and many others. Dale was a man of great wisdom, a strong and dedicated leader who brought his deep sense of pride and integrity to everything he did. Many will remember him as one who could be relied upon for wise counsel and for his devotion to mentoring others and helping them achieve their dreams. Dale touched the lives of countless people and was loved and respected by all who knew him. Dale was a very proud Winnipegger and a patriotic Canadian who loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing and napping in the sun at his cabin at Clearwater Bay. Dad was a great lover of music and of his three dogs Admiral, Columbus and Ptarmigan. No one will forget his keen sense of humour, his endless supply of jokes, his penchant for nicknaming those he cared about, and his contagious laugh. But Dale will be remembered most of all for his unconditional love and devotion to his family. Not only was he a dedicated husband and father but a very good friend and confidant to all of his children. His unwavering support and love made him a place of safety and refuge for his children always. His Pallbearers will be Gary, Gerry, Jim and Garth RUMMERY, Terry VANDERPLOEG and Marcel CHARBONNEAU with Honourary Pallbearers being Murray MITCHELL, Art MAURO, Sterling McLEOD, Dick Archer Wayne WALKER, Terry WRIGHT and Bob GREGG.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the United Way or the Winnipeg Humane Society. May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand Thomson 'In The Park' Funeral Home And Cemetery 1291 Mcgillivray Blvd, Winnipeg, Manitoba Www. Thomsoninthepark.Com 204-925-1120

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.

MARSH, Bernice Amelia (née WRIGHT)
On March 2, 2006 at the age of 73, our angel help-mate, Bernice, after a valiant battle with cancer, was embraced by the loving arms of her Heavenly Father, where she believed she would experience a new and wondrous life. Although petite in stature, Bernice is fondly remembered as being full of spunk, love, wisdom, courage and strength. She left a legacy of kindness and consideration. Bernice gave freely of herself to those in need, whether the need was for earnest prayer for the sick or needy, a tray of the best sandwiches ever or an incomparable dessert for an event. She was always there in mind, body and spirit. As well as being very loving, she was also a hard working lady. She spent over 50 years in banking and as part owner and chief manager of the family business. In addition, she was a 33-year volunteer at a major hospital with many years service in "Post-Op" and administration. Bernice was also a long-term member of St. Luke's Anglican Church in Mississauga where she was a special light at the centre of her musical passion, the 'Joy in the Morning' choral group. As well, she was very active on several committees. Bernice leaves her husband of 53 years, Keith; her daughter Cheryl and husband Phillip ELLIOT/ELLIOTT of New Brunswick; her daughter Janet; her son John and his wife Beatrice and grandchildren Andrew, Meaghan, Nicholas and Victoria as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins all over North America. A Celebration of Bernice's Life and interment in the Garden of Remembrance will take place at her home church of St. Luke's on Saturday, March 11, 2006 with visitation at 10: 00 a.m. and the Service at 11:00 a.m. The church is located at 1513 Dixie Road (south of the Queen Elizabeth Way across from Dixie Mall), Mississauga.

COOPER, Marjorie Helen (née LICK)
Left us on March 28th, 2006, in her 81st year. She passed on in peace and dignity at her Toronto home in the loving care of her family and Friends. Her family caregivers extend heartfelt thanks to Doctor Giovanna SIRIANNI, Heather WHALEN, Marlene CARSCALLEN and Heather McLEAN for helping her through a mercifully brief and intense battle with cancer. Born in Calgary, educated at the Universities of Toronto, Ottawa and Carleton, Marjorie was known and admired for her elegance, intellect, dry wit and peaceful spirit. Betrayed by her body, her sharp mind continued her daily ritual of completing the Globe and Mail crossword puzzle until two days before she died. She also was able to enjoy most of the televised World Championships in both skating and curling. Marjorie is predeceased by Bill COOPER, her husband of 54 years, her brother Gordon LICK of Ottawa and her daughter Margaret CRAY of Holland Landing. She leaves four children, Ian (Toronto), Doug (Powell River, British Columbia), Judy EAST (Calais, Maine), Kathy (Lindsay, Ontario), and eleven grandchildren, Valery, Alexander and Patrick COOPER, Mathew, Devon and Caitlynn PIANOSI, Graham and Heather CRAY, Jocelyn COOPER, Merryn LUSH and Alyson EAST. She is also survived by her daughters-in-law, Karen COOPER (nee PIANOSI,) Kate SAUNDERS, Sandra WRIGHT and sons-in-law, Paul CRAY, Richard EAST and Stuart LUSH. She lived a rich, full life that had its share of both great joy and extreme hardships. A scholarship at the age of 16 took her to Trois Pistolles, Quebec for a French immersion experience, the memory of which she treasured ever after. She met Bill in 1941 on one of many hiking and cycling expeditions in the Canadian Youth Hostelling Association. She shared Bill's keen advocacy for the Canadian Youth Hostelling Association and hosted a chuckwagon-style Canadian Youth Hostelling Association information booth at the Calgary Stampede of 1942. Marjorie served in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Women's Division working in Halifax during the war. With Bill and four other Friends, she went on a cycling expedition to New England in 1946, visiting Boston and Cape Cod. They were married in 1948 after both completed university. Her professional career included teaching sociology at the University of Toronto and she served as Registrar of Erindale College (now Utah, Mississauga) for many years, a job that she found deeply fulfilling especially when she knew she had helped students make difficult choices in their lives. After her retirement she focused on a quiet life of spiritual questing and fulfillment and never missed the full season of the Canadian Opera Company. Her community of Friends of Grace Church on-the-Hill meant the world to her. At Grace Church she was a member of the Altar Guild, the Cariboo Group, the Adult Christian Education Committee and she was the founder and moving spirit of The Book and Film Club. Serving as librarian, she was instrumental in the development and maintenance of the Church library. Her spiritual path also led her to become an oblate with the Sisters of St. Benedict in Erie, Pennsylvania. Her many contributions to the Church were recognized last Spring in the Award for Meritorious Service, an honour that, very quietly, gave her great pride. Funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 1, 2006, 11 a.m., Grace Church-on-the-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Road, with luncheon and reception to follow in the Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, Mount Sinai Hospital or the Palliative Care Unit at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket where her daughter received such excellent care.
