WESTON, Kristine (née MYSZKOWSKI)
After a difficult six-month long struggle with cancer, our Kristine passed away quietly at Grace Hospital on Thursday, November 30, 2006 at the age of 58, surrounded by loving family and Friends. Cherished firstborn daughter of mother Janina of Toronto and her late father Florian MYSZKOWSKI, Kristine was born in Lincoln, England. She spent the first 8 years of her life in Buenos Aires, coming to Canada in 1956. Beloved sister of Margaret BOBET of Geneva, Switzerland and Angela MYSZKOWSKI of Collingwood, and adored (and adoring) aunt Tissie to Jessica and Olivia BOBET. Always a larger than life personality with an innate sense of style and fashion, a resonant laugh and brilliant smile, Kristine began her working life teaching early elementary grades. She was a charismatic, creative and energetic teacher, much loved by her kids. She would later find her niche in executive recruitment as a researcher and consultant with Al Beech and Associates, as a corporate manager at Manulife Financial, and as an entrepreneur and consultant forming her own company Kris Weston and Associates. One of her proudest accomplishments in recent years was completion of the Washington Marathon in the fall of 2005 as a member of Jean's Marines. Kris will be dearly missed by her family and a large group of Friends who actively supported her through some of the worst moments of her life. She will be remembered as a true dog lover (Riley and Bentley), as a woman with a passion for living and for enjoying every moment to its fullest, a caregiver extraordinaire, an avid movie goer, reader and traveller, an Outward Bound graduate, an enthusiastic and caring friend, sister, daughter and aunt. Friends may call at the Ralph Day Funeral Home, 180 Danforth Avenue, between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m. on Tuesday. All are welcome to attend the memorial service for Kristine to be held at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club 7 p.m. Wednesday. The family and Kris' circle of Friends express deepest gratitude to Kris' medical team at Princess Margaret Hospital and Toronto General Hospital and to the skilled and compassionate palliative care team at the Salvation Army's Grace Hospital in Toronto. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Palliative Care Floor at the Grace Hospital (416-925-2251), would be greatly appreciated.

'Loss of a giant'
Tributes pour in for the renowned Dutton-born economist.
By John MINER, Free Press Reporter and News Services, Mon., May 1, Dutton -- "It is the loss of a giant."
News of the death of world renowned economist John Kenneth GALBRAITH, 97, was greeted with sadness yesterday in his hometown, where the library bears his name and people say they've forgiven him for his 1964 book poking fun at the area.
Leafing through letters from GALBRAITH in her second-floor Main Street Dutton studio, Jenny PHILLIPS said the former advisor to U.S. presidents -- who died Saturday -- will be missed by residents.
"We got a little bit of star quality because of him," said PHILLIPS, who helped spearhead the drive to have GALBRAITH recognized with a plaque and library renaming.
"He was one of the good ones. I don't believe they make men like that anymore with morals and ethics who don't mind going to bat against anybody. He was a giant."
Tributes came in yesterday to the towering intellectual from around the world.
British Finance Minister Gordon Brown said GALBRAITH advised him and others in recent years with insights into the modern age. "He will be remembered for his erudition, his wit and eloquence, and particularly for his economic insights into our age," he said.
Senator Edward Kennedy -- GALBRAITH served his brother in the White House -- lauded GALBRAITH's "profound commitment to social justice."
"I know how much President Kennedy admired his genius, valued his Friendship and loved his extraordinary wit, and so did I," he said.
"Our affluent society is a fairer and more just society today because of Ken, and no one who knew him will ever forget him."
Free Reporter Randy RICHMOND, among the last Canadian journalists to interview GALBRAITH, said his "grace" impressed him most when he interviewed him in 2003.
"He spoke as someone who had been through a lot of wars and had a lot of wisdom. He would take verbal potshots at his enemies, but it was always with humour," he said.
At the farm where GALBRAITH was born October 15, 1908, southwest of London, owner Robert BOBIER regrets he wasn't able to take GALBRAITH up on his invitation to visit him in the U.S.
GALBRAITH had been back to the family farm several times, once for the making of a British Broadcasting Corporation film.
"He was a smart, smart man," said BOBIER.
At the farm, GALBRAITH is commemorated with an Inuit inukshuk, a rock monument.
After graduating from the University of Toronto in 1931, GALBRAITH moved to the U.S. where he earned his Ph.D. in economics from the University of California.
He taught at Harvard from 1934 to 1939 and at Princeton University from 1939 to 1942.
GALBRAITH returned to Harvard in 1948, remaining active there until retiring in 1975.
He served as adviser to Democratic presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Bill Clinton and was John F. Kennedy's ambassador to India.
GALBRAITH became one of America's best-known liberals and was outspoken in his support of government action to solve social problems.
The author of more than 20 books, his 1958 work The Affluent Society caused the U.S. to reconsider its values and helped propel him into the international spotlight.
The book argued the American economy was producing individual wealth, but hadn't adequately addressed public needs such as schools and highways.
But it was a book GALBRAITH wrote while ambassador in India, The Scotch, that infuriated locals in his home area.
Yesterday, the book was repeatedly mentioned by Dutton residents, but people said they were over it.
"Time heals everything," said BOBIER.
PHILLIPS said there was nothing in the book others hadn't said, but GALBRAITH wrote it down.
"I don't think he ever intended to be rude," she said.
GALBRAITH's nephew, Jerry GALBRAITH of the Dutton area, said his uncle was particularly pleased when Dutton named its library after him.
"He always spoke about the library and wrote to us several times about it. He was quite honoured," he said.
When GALBRAITH couldn't make the trip to Canada for a plaque unveiled in his honour, the Free Press's RICHMOND interviewed him at his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The one question GALBRAITH avoided answering was what he saw as his own legacy.
"He said that was up to other people to decide. He never wanted to talk about his own heroics," RICHMOND said.
In that 2003 interview, GALBRAITH said his greatest political accomplishment was during the Second World War when he was a central part of the successful effort to keep inflation under control.
Asked what he would rank as his greatest failure, GALBRAITH replied: "That is not my disposition, but I would have no doubt that in the United States, and also in Canada, our greatest failure has been in the very large number of people who live in poverty, deprivation, concern as to life next week, next year."
John Kenneth Galbraith
Born: October 15, 1908, in Iona Station.
Education: B.S., University of Toronto, 1931; M.S., Ph.D., University of California, 1934.
Experience: From 1934 to 1939, he was an instructor and tutor at Harvard. Also taught at the University of California and at Princeton before returning to Harvard in 1948 as a lecturer in economics. Promoted to professor in 1949 and in 1959 became the Warburg Professor of Economics. He retired in 1975.
GALBRAITH organized and oversaw price controls during the Second World War as deputy administrator in the Office of Price Administration. President Kennedy appointed GALBRAITH ambassador to India, where he served from 1961 to 1963.
Family: Wife, Catherine Atwater GALBRAITH. Sons, Alan, Peter and James.
Quote: "There is no hope for liberals if they seek only to imitate conservatives, and no function either." -- From a 1992 article in Modern Maturity.
