OAKE, Conner
March 16, 2004
In loving memory of our dear son who left us 2 years ago today.
If tears could make a staircase,
And heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.
We hold you close within our hearts
And there you will remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.
Sadly missed, forever loved, and always remembered by Mommy (Brandi ALBERT,) Daddy (Jason OAKE,) Jaiela, J.R., Grandma Char, Grandpa Kevin, Grandpa Randy, Nano, Uncle Randy, Grandpa Dan, Julia and Shay.

OAKS, Dr. B. Ann
Passed away peacefully on Friday, January 13, 2006 at the age of 76, at the Guelph General Hospital. Ann was daughter of the late H.A. "Doc" and Bernice OAKS (FARLINGER.) Raised in Port Arthur, she was an excellent swimmer, active in many other sports and fascinated by the natural world of Northern Ontario. Her interest in nature drove her to become one of the first female fire watchers, with her cousin Helen SAINT_JOHN. Her real focus, during her time off from watching for fires, was gathering and identifying local flora and fauna. Her wonder and curiosity was always with her. This led to a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Toronto and a lifetime of pushing through barriers society put between women and success in the sciences. She went on to receive her M.Sc. and PhD from the University of Saskatchewan. She visited the far north and was captivated by it, working for a year in Churchill. Her widely respected research into how maize seedlings grow, particularly focusing on the acquisition of nitrogen and nitrate reductase, led her to conferences around the world. She developed and cherished working relationships and Friendships with scientists from India, Japan, North America and across Europe. Her work not only pushed forward the understanding of the physiology of plant growth but also helped to open doors for women who followed in her footsteps. She received the Gold medal award from the Canadian Society of Plant Physiologists and was a member of the Royal Society of Canada. She retired as a Professor at McMaster University for 24 years and then was an adjunct professor at the University of Guelph for 10 years. She passed on her passion for plant physiology and biochemistry to undergraduate and graduate students, encouraging them to question and challenge ideas. Her interests were widespread, from fighting against the untested introduction of genetically modified crops with the Council of Canadians to collecting Inuit art. In later years she would not let the frailty of her body slow her down. She was recognized by the McMaster University with an Honourary Doctorate and as a Woman of Distinction for lifetime achievement by the Guelph Young Women's Christian Association. Ann will be sadly missed by her brothers Steve (Monique) of Ottawa, Tony and Rick (Barb) of Toronto, her six cherished nieces and nephews; and seven great-nieces and nephews, who fondly remember her as KoKosh. Many Friends, from near and far, will also miss her lively discussions and passionate concern for the environment and politics. The world has lost another Lorax - another must spring from a stump to replace her. A memorial will be held at a later date. Ann was a supporter of many charities: if desired, make a donation to the charity of your choice in memory of Ann.
