JACKSON, Ruby Doris (née ALEXANDER)
'The Wind Beneath our Wings'
Our beloved Ruby has bid her final adieu. After a short illness, she passed away peacefully on May 22, 2006 at the Montreal General Hospital. Ruby joins her late husband, Jack, with whom she celebrated 64 years of marriage. She will be dearly missed by her four sons, Jack Jr. (Carole), Rick (Louise), Terry (Bonnie), and Rob (Sharon). Ruby was a caring sister-in-law to Helena and aunt to Shirley, Marge, Ken Jr., Glenn, Linda, Bruce, Neil, Judy, Kim, David and Bill. Her wonderful spirit will be forever cherished by her ten grandchildren, Scott, Michelle, Joelle, Shaun, Joanna, Heidi, Holly, Tim, Ryan and Lauren and four great-grandchildren, Jill, Ellie, Kate and Owen. She was predeceased by her brother Ken, brothers-in law Bob and Graham and sisters-in-law, Bea and Meta. Born in Montreal on September 17, 1917 to Rupert Irvine ALEXANDER of Gaspé, Québec and Nancy Maude EAMAN of Ingleside, Ontario, Ruby grew up in Montreal West where she attended Elizabeth Ballantyne School and Montreal West High. She earned a Bachelor of Household Science from McGill/MacDonald College. Upon graduation, she trained at the Montreal General Hospital and later became head dietician at Eaton's Ninth Floor restaurant. When Jack returned home following World War 2, she became a fulltime homemaker dedicating her life to her loving husband and four boys. Ruby was a very special lady filled with a wonderful sense of humour and an immense joy for living which was enjoyed by all those around her. Her selflessness was evident in her day to day life, always finding only the positives in everybody. She contributed her time and energies to charitable causes including Centraide and the Montreal Association for Retarded Children. Ruby loved to entertain and was the ultimate hostess, forever ensuring that everyone felt 'at home' while enjoying her culinary delights. She was also blessed with an incredible memory, never forgetting to acknowledge everyone's special achievements/milestones, whether minor or major. Ruby was a most incredible wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Now Ruby has reached the end of her journey, and what a memorable journey it was for all of us who were fortunate enough to have shared it with her. Her strong sense of family values, unconditional love, support and generosity comprise the wonderful legacy she leaves to us all. We love you, Mother. You were indeed - 'the wind beneath our wings.' A private family service was held at the Mount Royal Funeral Complex. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Quebec, 1434 Ste-Catherine St. West, Suite 500, Montreal, Québec H3G 1R4 or The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Canada, 7100 Woodbine Ave, Suite 311, Markham, Ontario L3R 5J2 would be greatly appreciated. The family wishes to extend heartfelt thanks to the marvelous, caring staffs on 14 West at the Montreal General and at the Julius Richardson Centre.

RICHARDS, Eddie
By John CUNNINGHAM, Page A26
Musician, bandleader, husband, father, eternal optimist. Born June 18, 1924, in Port Arthur, Ontario Died September 15, of natural causes, in Halifax, aged 82.
'Who have you been listening to?" he would always ask.
Almost to the end, he'd usher you to his car, turn on the stereo and settle in to share some band that had just attracted his attention.
It was a Christmas gift of a set of Michael Bublé videos that were cheering him on that damp, windy day in early spring when blackened snow clung to the curbs along King Street in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia "My oldest son Robert gave it to me," he said. "You can't believe this Bublé guy. You've got to come and see it."
But Eddie died before we could watch them together, of a combination of illnesses including the incapacitating lung disease that two years ago had robbed him of the pleasure of playing his beloved trumpet to a standard acceptable to him.
But on that last meeting, Eddie seemed to be saying that the growing popularity of the young Vancouver crooner Michael Bublé was an affirmation that the kind of music he had loved and dedicated his life to would continue on well into the future.
Edwin Leonard Richards began his 68-year musical career with a school trumpet band in the former Port Arthur, Ontario, where he got "the only formal musical training I ever received."
Soon, the war was on and, through long daily practise, Eddie qualified as a Royal Canadian Navy bandsman and was posted to Sydney, N.S.
Post-war years saw him play lead trumpet with a United States Air Force Orchestra at the air base at Stephenville, Newfoundland. Moving to Halifax, he joined the orchestra of long-time Canadian Broadcasting Corporation jazz program host Don Warner.
Then, as a bandleader, Eddie fronted a series of trios, swing, jazz and Dixieland bands that continued to thrive for decades despite the onslaught of rock 'n' roll music.
Eclectic in taste and abilities, he spent 13 years as principal trumpet with the Halifax Symphony, which has evolved into Symphony Nova Scotia.
A frequent performer on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and television, he lead a jazz combo appearing in a production entitled This Is Jazz. But being a jazzman on Canada's East Coast wasn't an easy life. While playing seven nights a week at the Lobster Trap, Halifax, he had a day job at a music store helping customers chose good records. The jazz gig began at 9: 30 p.m. and, on a good night, ended at 2: 30 a.m., he told me in a 1995 interview. A lot of times, they played until 4 a.m.
According to longer-term Friends, he was devastated by the loss of his first wife, Cecilia, to cancer, but after a long period of grieving, his life began anew when he met the former Hazel ALEXANDER. It was a whirlwind courtship and she tells the story of how, within days of their meeting, Eddie played, on a muted trumpet over the phone, a few bars of You Made Me Love You. He then proposed.
The couple were married in 1991 and, approaching his seventh decade, Eddie became patriarch of an extended family of nine, four children of his own and five of Hazel's. Well into the new millennium, Eddie and his Dixieland band would play at the exhibition in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, where he and some of his long-term musical buddies would jam all afternoon. The musicians, aged from 60 to 80 and beyond, went through a repertoire of good old Dixie chestnuts. They played from the heart.
Eddie and his fellow musicians were going to go down fighting to help preserve these old musical standards. It was an art form they totally enjoyed. It was their mission to share this joy with others.
John CUNNINGHAM is a friend of Eddie.

ALEXANDER, Olga " Youzwa"
By Mary Ann ROBINSON, Page A20
Wife, mother, horticulturalist, flower arranger. Born March 19, 1921, in Nipawin, Saskatchewan. Died September 29 in Mississauga of complications arising from heart-bypass surgery, aged 85.
Olga ALEXANDER is remembered outside her family as a consummate artist who created works of art, full of life and mystery, from fleeting materials -- flowers and plants. She was a horticultural judge and master flower-arranger. Her journey to this position of excellence would never have been predicted in her early years. Born in Saskatchewan to a pioneering Ukrainian family, the drive was for food and financial security. There was little time for "superfluous" schooling or flowers, especially not for girls. Her own mother in later years dismissed a gift of peonies that failed to bloom: "Should have planted potatoes, at least there'd be something useful."
Olga went east in 1943 during a recruiting drive for women to work in munitions plants as part of the war effort. Instead of finding the big city intimidating, she explored it with youthful zest, in the process meeting her future husband Bill through mutual acquaintances.
Their backgrounds were remarkably similar; they were both transplants from Saskatchewan. They bought their first home in Mimico, Ontario, and settled down to raise seven children on its half-acre. They would never have left, had the land not been expropriated in 1968 for an industrial park. After two unsettling years of fighting for equitable compensation, they relocated to Mississauga and began again, successfully transplanting virtually every plant, except one enormous maple tree.
Home and family were always their focus; education, for boys and girls alike, was seen as the key to a good future. Bill was a millwright, welder -- and mad inventor. Whatever was needed, he could and did make, from props for school productions to tools and yard carts.
By 1956 they had what seemed a perfect family, two boys and two girls. Then tragedy struck. Their six-year-old son was killed in a car accident. The grief was overwhelming. There were few formal sources of comfort, few relatives to turn to. Olga said it took two years before a semblance of normalcy returned to their lives. On her 80th birthday, the subject came up and Mom told us she occasionally had days when her grief was so intense that when Bill went to work and we all went to school she'd howl like an animal just to give some expression to the overwhelming sadness.
As the children grew, the parents developed their own interests. They'd always gardened around their home, and now it became a passion, starting with the useful and evolving into the decorative. They were a team: Bill did the structural and Olga the design and management (read "bossing"). In the mid-1950s Olga discovered specialist groups, in her case the Canadian Iris Society, and from there her expertise and creativity grew. From irises she moved to roses, orchids and dahlias. She took classes, passed examinations, competed, created, judged and instructed others. She studied Japanese and English schools of flower arranging. She prided herself on her use of a diverse palate of materials, virtually all propagated and grown in the garden by Bill or herself.
Bill died in 2002 and for her much of the light went with him. She wrote stories of her life, put her pictures in albums and planted her garlic and dahlias but when it came to it, she was ready to go.
Generous with cuttings, good with advice, sound in her knowledge, hers was a life vision that looked in only one direction; a triumph of innate ability over a beginning that promised little. Certainly there were thorns on her roses, but there were always roses, roses, roses, all the way.
Mary Ann is Olga and Bill's oldest child.

Scarborough's first policewoman'feisty'
A widow at 38, she worked to support her children as part of Toronto's so-called 'Powder Puff Patrol'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Some smart aleck once thought Evelyn Morden JOHNSTON was driving too slowly. He was right on her tail as she proceeded sedately at precisely the speed limit along a Scarborough side street, before he floored it, crossed the centre line and cut in front of her. Then he slowed right down. He no doubt thought he was giving the little old lady a well-deserved taste of her own medicine and he couldn't have been more wrong.
Deftly and swiftly she overtook him and blocked his way with her car, forcing him to stop. Then she coolly got out and arrested him.
He had just met his match -- and Scarborough's first policewoman.
JOHNSTON had worked stakeouts, undercover, in the youth and women's bureaus. She'd taken the sharpshooting medal at police college. A trim five-foot-one, she was unarmed when she single-handledly arrested a young man for flashing in a public park.
Her granddaughter, Karen BOUCHER, grew up admiring her unconventional Nana. "She was very much a trailblazer, feisty, almost unstoppable."
She'd been a traditional wife and mother until 1950, when her husband, Howard MORDEN, was killed in a car crash on Sammon Ave. in Toronto's east end. A young man with a car full of girls had run a stop sign and smashed into their car. MORDEN put his arm out to hold back his wife and was thrown out of the car, which rolled on him.
At 38, she was left with two children -- Shirley, 21, and Fraser, 19. Friends urged her to find work. She applied for the job of secretary to Scarborough's police chief, got it and was soon conscripted to frisk and escort women prisoners.
Finally her chief told her she was doing the work of a policewoman so why not become one.
"I'm too old," she told her daughter.
"I'll help you study," Shirley replied. "We'd sit at the kitchen table and I would ask her questions from her books." In 1960 MORDEN graduated at the top of her class. She was 50 years old and went back to work at Scarborough's 41 Division in what was then the Metro Toronto Police force.
"I was always worried about her," said her daughter. "Once she phoned and was whispering. She said she was at a stakeout down by the waterfront. I think it was a drug bust. I was scared to death." Usually though, her workday was more routine, even deskbound.
Women officers were still a rarity. The first two had joined Toronto's force in 1913, and their numbers had yet to top 50 when MORDEN joined. When she retired in 1974, there were 63 policewomen and 3,504 male constables. It wasn't until 1975 that women joined the rank and file. Their rank was changed to police constable and they were allowed to carry a gun, where before they'd carried a leather baton in their purse and wore a navy serge jacket, skirt, lisle stockings, white gloves and perky hat.
"In those days women were in very few beats," said Gina BELLAMY, who joined about a decade after MORDEN. " They directed traffic between Eaton's and Simpsons and patrolled Union Station ticketing illegally parked cars."
The policewomen's bureau was located in the old 13 Division station at Markham and London Sts., the only division that housed women overnight. The division had one car, known as WB1, and the policewomen were responsible for handling wayward members of their sex.
But on March 5, 1962, an American documentary was televised across North America. It was called the Powder Puff Patrol and it was all about Toronto's policewomen. The logo was a gun, lipstick and compact. There were shots of policewomen powdering their noses and hovering over typewriters.
MORDEN was featured going undercover as a bag lady, wiping her nose on the sleeve of her ill-fitting coat, with stockings furled at her ankles, shopping bags and a kerchief over a wig. Bureau chief Sgt. Fern ALEXANDER told the cameras MORDEN was "always efficient and always proper" but "just ham enough to be loving" going undercover.
The show's enthusiastic announcer hailed every policewoman's patience and pronounced them "here to stay," while the police chief of the time, James MacKEY, declared they were "excellent public relations officers for our city."
For years the Toronto force used the film for recruiting. "[The film] is an absolute howl," said BELLAMY, who hails the women as true pioneers. Her former husband worked with MORDEN. " Bernie always said that if Ev did a (police) check then it would be done perfectly."
MORDEN worked in the complaints bureau in her final years on the force. She retired in 1974 at 64, having married Insp. Walter JOHNSTON. They met while both worked at 41 Division; JOHNSTON moved to Oshawa to become police chief, later returning to Toronto when he was nominated for the Police Commission. They moved to Mississauga. Eight years later when JOHNSTON died of cancer, she moved to Beaverton near her daughter and her family.
At 90, she was still out shovelling snow. "You could never tell Nana not to do something," said BOUCHER with a laugh.
She died August 15 at age 95.
She had requested a police chaplain at her funeral, and there were also two uniformed police officers as honour guard and a Toronto Police piper. Later, when Shirley was going through her mother's personal effects, she discovered that Toronto Policewoman #5518 was still an active member of the police revolver club.

RITCHIE, John Andrew " Jack," M.D., R.C.A.M.C., R.C.P.S.C.
Captain (Ret) (December 19, 1915-May 30, 2006)
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jack on May 30, 2006. He has gone to join his beloved wife Kaye who predeceased him in 1967. Jack is survived by his daughter June ALEXIS and son-in-law Bryan and son Spencer and daughter-in-law Cindy. Jack also leaves behind his two loving sisters Joyce (Port Credit) and Pat (Summerside, Prince Edward Island), and other sisters-in-law along with numerous nieces and nephews. After serving with distinction in World War 2 throughout Europe, Jack returned to his hometown of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and moved his family to Newmarket, Ontario. There he built a thriving medical practice and worked as Chief of Surgery in what was then known as York County Hospital. He retired for the second time in May 1994 after serving as an examining surgeon with the Workman's Compensation Board. The family would like to thank the many nurses, doctors and staff of North York General Hospital, especially those on 5 South and North for their compassion and caring. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 1st. A private burial service will be held. If desired, donations may be made to the North York Hospital Foundation, 4001 Leslie Street, Toronto, Ontario M2K 1E1. We leave the final words from Jack "Remember me with smiles and laughter for that's the way I remember you. If you only remember me with tears then don't remember me at all."
