RICHARDSON, Theresa Madeline (née LAPETINA)
Left this world with grace on March 13, 2006, surrounded by her family, after 91 glorious years. You cannot squeeze much more out of a life than that! Born in Toronto on February 19, 1915, she was predeceased by her wonderful husband, George, in 1982 and was never able to find a completely suitable replacement. Theresa is survived by her daughter Catharine (Paul CARROLL) and son George ("Stix") both of whom were with her to the end. Tragically, she was predeceased by her other son, Jimmy, in a car accident many years ago, a loss from which she never completely recovered. She loved, and was loved by, her grandchildren, Peter CARROLL (Suzanne LORD), Michael CARROLL (Vera), Ann Marie PIEKENBROCK (Zane) and Amanda RICHARDSON, as well as by her great grandchildren Devin, Jenna and Brendan (Carroll). Her former daughter-in-law, Angela CANNON, was with her at the end, having been a great help over the years. Grand dogs Robin (San Francisco), Rowdy (Vancouver) and Cosimo (Kingston) stand on guard for her. The last five years of her life would have been unbearable if it were not for the tireless assistance, compassion and humour of her dear friend, Merlin CAMERON, and all the staff and volunteers at Seven Oaks Home for the Aged, with special thanks also to Bev and Harold PARRINGTON for the "happy hours," especially on Fridays. Theresa, and her husband, were always immersed in music, classical and opera in particular, but also pop. George Sr.'s favourite line, with no apologies to Caruso or Beurling, was "if I could sing like that I wouldn't even talk to you!" Theresa also was a wiz on the piano, playing mostly by ear. This love of music transcended their life and is carried forward by her descendants. Even the dogs like music. A Memorial Mass was celebrated on March 22, 2006 at Saint Thomas More Catholic Church followed by interment with her parents, husband and son at Mount Hope Cemetery. At Theresa's request, attendance was limited to family and close Friends as she did not want a fuss. Anyone wishing to make a donation in memory of Theresa is invited to send it to Seven Oaks Home for the Aged, 9 Neilson Road, Toronto, Ontario M1E 5E1 where a fund has been established to continue the tradition of camaraderie among the residents, in which Theresa was an active participant.

That dedication helped him infiltrate organized crime, charm hardened criminals and propel him to a spot on Ontario's elite anti-terrorism squad.
Now, as the Windsor police force mourns the loss of this 14-year veteran, the question is whether Constable ATKINSON's willingness to go the extra mile may have played a role in his death.
Police say Constable ATKINSON, 37, was on duty Friday afternoon when he was fatally shot after confronting two people outside a convenience store. The father of two died in the parking lot, only blocks from his east-end Windsor home. Two 18-year-olds have been charged with first-degree murder.
Police say Constable ATKINSON suspected a drug deal was going on, and Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD said yesterday that the officer would have been "duty bound" to investigate.
Breaking up petty drug deals was not a part of the job description for an officer who worked in street clothes and sometimes undercover. He had been working for the past two years to unearth terrorists with a provincial joint task force.
Yesterday, the force's honour guard joined thousands of Ontario police in Toronto for a service honouring fallen officers.
As they ate lunch after the service at Queen's Park, his colleagues described Constable ATKINSON as a "true brother" who lived for his family and his profession.
"He was a policeman 24 hours a day," said one constable who did not want to be named.
"You say 'police,' you say 'John,' " added another.
Constable ATKINSON grew up in Windsor and married his high-school sweetheart, Shelly. They bought the house next door to his parents and had two children: Mitchell, now 9, and Nicole, who turned 7 on Saturday.
He joined his hometown police force as a cadet in 1991, and earned a reputation as a hard-working cop who was especially adept at recovering stolen vehicles.
"There's people who go 120 miles an hour and there's people who go 40 miles an hour," said Chief STANNARD. "He worked all the time."
About six years ago, Constable ATKINSON became an undercover officer. His easy-going manner had proven valuable in getting criminals to talk.
"He was really good at cultivating that information," said Sergeant Mike LAPORT, president of the Windsor Police Association. "He could pretty well talk to anybody."
He was also "strong like an ox," said another officer, who said he often worked out with Constable ATKINSON, who was about six feet tall and weighed over 200 pounds. "He was a true-blue cop's cop," he added. "If you're in [trouble], you want him there."
About two years ago, Constable ATKINSON was assigned to the province's anti-terrorism section, a unit that includes municipal, provincial and federal officers. The job meant he often worked alone.
He showed up to work most days wearing jeans.
On Friday afternoon, just after 2 p.m., police say Constable ATKINSON pulled up to a gas station and convenience store. He was in plainclothes and filling up his unmarked vehicle with gas.
Police say he noticed two men involved in what appeared to be a drug deal.
"He came across something that was potentially a criminal offence and was duty bound to take some action, and he did," Chief STANNARD said.
Constable ATKINSON flashed his police badge, police say, and shortly after he was struck by a bullet. He was able to return fire before falling to the pavement.
Chief STANNARD said he did not know whether Constable ATKINSON knew the two teens charged in his death.
"I'm not going to question or second-guess whether he should have done this, or should have done that," Chief STANNARD said.
"He took some action -- whatever that may be. We'll sort through the rest of that in the investigation."
He said the officer was comfortable working alone, as he often did.
Constable ATKINSON, the first Windsor police officer ever killed on duty, will be buried with full police honours on Thursday. A public memorial service will be held Tuesday.
Charged with first-degree murder are Nikkolas BRENNAN and Coty DEFAUSSES, both 18. Mr. BRENNAN was also charged with possession of a narcotic for the purpose of trafficking. He also faces a weapons charge.

John MacNAUGHTON, Engineer and Chief Executive Officer (1932-2006)
As head of Spar Aerospace, he brought star power to the Canadarm and launched Canada into a new age of robotics and telecommunications
By Simon STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- The next time The Canadarm delicately unfurls itself from a space shuttle, one can imagine it waving a fond adieu to its godfather: John MacNAUGHTON.
While a mechanical engineer by trade, it was Mr. MacNAUGHTON's creative and visionary approach to marketing that helped to bring international star power to the Canadarm and launched Canada into a new age of robotics and telecommunications.
In the 1970s, N.A.S.A. had presented Canada with a challenge of astronomical proportions: Develop a giant arm to be carried aboard the Space Transportation System, now commonly referred to as the space shuttle. Believing that Spar Aerospace had the capacity to build something called a Shuttle Remote Manipulator System. Mr. MacNAUGHTON convinced Ottawa, and Spar itself, that this was where Canada's future lay in the space business.
"John had a strong belief on how to market to the government," said Doctor Phil LAPP, a long-time friend and colleague at Spar Aerospace. "The key to his approach was to come up with the idea, and then convince the government it was their own concept and let the government run with it."
Then vice-president of marketing and planning, Mr. MacNAUGHTON dazzled N.A.S.A. and Ottawa with what might be called reverse salesmanship. When he was done, Ottawa was completely on side and the Shuttle Remote Manipulator System had been officially renamed the Canadarm. Decked out with a red "Canada" logo, it was identified by millions of television viewers every time the shuttle's cameras broadcast it on the job in orbit. The same logo could easily have been pasted across John MacNAUGHTON, too. The only child of a retired postmaster general of Saskatchewan and a schoolteacher, he was raised in Victoria, British Columbia, and groomed by his parents for a career in medicine. Instead, he displayed an early aptitude for engineering and built model boats, airplanes, and mail-order home radio kits -- all constructed to amuse himself and his Friends. It was a passion for things mechanical that never abated. The summer before he was expected to leave for medical school at McGill University in Montreal, a friend decided to study engineering in Britain. That was enough for John MacNAUGHTON. With the financial support of a wealthy uncle, he soon followed.
At the de Havilland Technical School in Hatfield, England, and later London University's Hatfield College, he started buying and repairing cars and motorcycles. According to his wife, whom he met during his four-year stay in England, he owned three of each during that time.
On his 350 c.c. Velocette motorcycle, Mr. MacNAUGHTON sped through the English countryside, his face as close as possible to both the ground and his feet. It was as near to an epiphany as most of us ever experience. "The sensation of man and machine working together as parts of the same whole sealed his decision to spend a lifetime with designs and mechanisms," said Doctor LAPP.
Back home in Canada, he found an emerging space program. In 1954, Mr. MacNAUGHTON started work in the guided-missile division of de Havilland Aircraft. There he developed design systems for such missiles as the Velvet Glove, Sparrow 2 and Bomark. Later, he worked on the S.T.E.M. antennas employed by Alouette I, Canada's first satellite. In 1967, de Havilland decided to shut down its space research division, leading a group of its employees -- Mr. MacNAUGHTON included -- to found Spar Aerospace.
In the early years of Spar, he was involved in a broad series of space projects and programs, including the Manned Space Program, I.S.I.S., Skylark and Dragon. Working with governments, industry, and academics, his insights into the business often showed him to be much more than an engineer. He was, said Doctor LAPP, "a visionary who could envision final products and then find the optimum pathway to completion."
At times, though, Mr. MacNAUGHTON, saw himself more as a humble cog in a wheel.
"I remember well the night the first Gemini manned spacecraft circled the Earth," he told a group in 1992. "I was a young engineer immersed in the fledgling space industry. I was leaving work late one night and I looked up and saw a full moon. I thought: 'It's incredible, the things we have designed, touched, and agonized over are going there, they'll land there, and they'll become a monument to all of our efforts.' "
For all that, as the founding chairman of the Aerospace Industry Association of Canada's space committee, he went on to develop the Aerospace Industry Association of Canada's policy paper on space, which was instrumental in convincing the government to build the Canadarm and its successors.
Yet John MacNAUGHTON did more than establish Canada's reputation in aerospace technology. He was not just the ship's captain, sitting Picard-esque on the bridge, commanding his crew to "make it so." Instead, he preferred to roll up his sleeves and show how it could be done. In 1989, he was appointed president and Chief Executive Officer of the company. It was not a happy time for the company. Morale had plummeted after the loss of several large contracts, and mismanagement had led to the balkanization of some divisions and to dissent and hostility among executives.
"I couldn't get these guys to address the issues," Mr. MacNAUGHTON once told Report on Business. "Basically their attitude was 'It's your problem, you fix it.' "
Mr. MacNAUGHTON's idea of a repair job centred on his fascination with a new piece of technology -- the microprocessor -- and its potential to change the face of the space-and-telecommunications industry. A few years earlier, he had arranged for Spar to buy a San Diego-based developer of satellite ground terminals, an acquisition that put the company at the centre of a highly competitive consumer electronics field. Little by little, he turned Spar's fortunes around by expanding commercial business and moving into international communications and software.
After his retirement from Spar in 1996, he continued as a board member and director of such groups as the National Quality Institute, an organization devoted to the improvement of organizational quality and workplace health standards in Canada. "He would come in to the National Quality Institute office and sit in his shirtsleeves and get at it with flipcharts and things. And the next day he'd be sitting in a boardroom and talking about why Canadian business leaders should look seriously at this and why it's important," recalls John PERRY, a senior adviser at the institute.
All the same, space travel remained his true passion. For 40 years, he made Vero Beach, Florida, his winter retreat and he would sit on the beach in front of his condo and watch as rockets and space shuttles launched from nearby Kennedy Space Center lit up the sky.
A lifetime collector of gadgets and electronics, his Mississauga, Ontario, home was filled to capacity with the latest cellphones, televisions, portable Digital Video Disk players, large-band radios, Personal Digital Assistants, and BlackBerries -- culminating in the recent purchase of a Global Position System unit. "He didn't need it to navigate," his children wrote in a eulogy. "He cherished it because on its display he could watch the various satellites lock into his co-ordinates on Earth."
In 1997, Mr. MacNAUGHTON was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.
John David Francis MacNAUGHTON was born on April 10, 1932, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. He died of heart arrhythmia on May 12, 2006. He was 74. He is survived by his wife, Joy, his daughter Jane and two sons, Paul and Neil.

STEPHENSON, Donald Ross (May 13, 1928-March 26, 2006)
It is with great sadness that the family of Donald STEPHENSON announce his passing on March 26, 2006. Don slipped away quietly in his sleep at Sarnia General Hospital following a brief illness. He is now in a better place and we are sure that he is watching and patiently waiting for the 'happening', that he wanted us to have in memory of him and in celebration with him. Born in Toronto, May 13, 1928, Don lived his early years in North Toronto. Don married Betty Joan WILCE in 1952 and relocated to Richmond Hill where together with his wife and life partner they raised three boys. Don was always a loving, dedicated and supportive father. After 22 years, they relocated to Camlachie, near Sarnia, in 1975 and from there their love of boating took them in 1982 to a condominium in a marina development in Point Edward (a suburb of Sarnia) where he lived out this retirement years. Don began his working life as a professional photographer, and enjoyed his passion for this creative art long into his life. Realizing that photography might not 'pay the bills', Don soon moved into a career in marketing, advertising and ultimately, public relations, concluding his career with a 25 year tenure at Dow Chemical Canada. Don was transferred to Sarnia in 1975 to take up a position as Public Relations and Advertising Manager for Dow. During his years in Richmond Hill, together with Betty, Don was active in both federal and provincial politics serving in riding association executives, as president, campaign manager and as a fund raiser. While his political allegiances changed later in life, his work at that time was helpful in securing the election of Barney Danson, Federal Minister of National Defence and Donald Deacon, the Deputy Leader of the Provincial Liberal Party. In the years following his transfer to Sarnia he became Director of Public Relations and Communications, Director of Public Issues and a member of the Management Committee of Dow Chemical Canada, earning many national and international awards in the process. Don retired from Dow in 1988 at age 60. Left behind to mourn his loss and to remember and celebrate his life are Betty, his loving (and very patient) wife and partner of 54 years; sons (and occasional troublemakers) John (Barbara KEMENY) of Thunder Bay; Chris (Lynn FOSTER) of Richmond Hill; and Mark (Kerri-Lea DEMARSH) of Corunna, Ontario; grandchildren Laura and Andrew (John,) Bill FOSTER (Chris and Lynn) and Luke and Amber-Lea (Mark and Kerri;) Helen STEPHENSON (mother of Laura and Andrew;) his cousins, Doctor Betty STEPHENSON, Dr. Alan PENGELLY, Faye WEISS and Joan STEPHENSON, his 'in-laws' Howard and Ivy WILCE, Sandie WILCE and Howard HARVEY and his numerous nieces and nephews on the Wilce side of the family. Don was the only son of and predeceased by his father, Roscoe Cecil (1889-1962) and his mother Leta Louella (née (LAPP1890-1969.)) Don will also be fondly and humourously remembered by his large family of long time, close and loyal Friends, affectionately known as 'the gang'. Too numerous to mention here, they need only know that he is counting on them to make the 'happening' a memorable party. Don will also be remembered by his many Friends in the extended Stephenson and Legge families with whom he had connected in later years as he worked on the greatest of his many projects - The Stephenson and Legge Chronicles. As it was during his working career Don's retirement was enriched by his enjoyment of his many projects and activities - boating, gardening, travelling with Betty, making wine, woodworking, photography, and his genealogical work. Our lives are enriched by his legacy: the family history he wrote, his many wonderful photographs and the beautiful pieces of furniture he made. Most of all, we are enriched by having known him and by our memories of him. At Don's request, there will not be a funeral service and his ashes will be privately interred. A 'happening' in memory and celebration of Don's life will take place at the Sarnia Golf and Curling Club on Saturday, April 22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Memorial donations in Don's name may be made to Blue Water Health Intensive Care Unit, 89 Norman Street, Sarnia, Ontario N7T 6S3.
