PETRIE, Jack Melville (1914-2006)
Suddenly and peacefully at home in his 92nd year. Jack PETRIE, beloved husband of Phyllis (née CLIPPERTON) for 54 years, and devoted, cherished father of Debra and son-in-law Lee (MALES,) Kent and friend Tammie, and Leah and son-in-law Peter; grandchildren Graham, Erica, Ashley, Jordan and Shawn. Predeceased by daughter Donna (1961) and son Alan (1999), brothers Lorne, Bill, Glen, Ken, Bud, and sister Lenore. Survived by sister Olive and Steven MANLEY, sisters-in-law Hazel PETRIE and Jean PETRIE and a large extended family. To know Jack was to immediately like him. He always greeted you with a smile, a mischievous twinkle in his eye and a little chuckle as if to say "I've been waiting for you to arrive, now let's enjoy ourselves". A lifelong resident of the London area, Jack worked at Kellogg's up to his retirement in 1979. Apart from work, his private life revolved around his family and many interests. In his younger years he would have been called a sportsman. He excelled at everything he did. All at one time, he was a scratch golfer, a city-wide champion bowler, horseshoe player, marksman, billiard player and raised gamecocks for sport. He loved to tinker and was an accomplished musician, mastering many instruments including the fiddle, guitar, harmonica, piano and mandolin, playing daily right up to the time of his passing. Jack had a passion for old-time country music and one of his hobbies was to play the fiddle at impromptu gatherings and jambories around the area, and continued to do so into his mid-eighties. He never had a bad word to say about anyone and he loved to entertain people. Apart from his music, he would keep us laughing for hours with stories of his youth, events and mishaps along the way. Jack enjoyed life, lived well and never lost his youthful zeal. As a result of his many interests and considerable charisma, Jack accumulated a long list of lifelong Friends, and will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. To Dr. Hugh ROONEY, thank you for your diligent care. To our mother Phyllis who, out of love, so dutifully tended to his every want and need; Beauty and youth are fleeting, but grace and memories endure. Friends may pay their last respects at the A. Millard George Funeral Home, 60 Ridout Street South, London on Sunday, January 15th between the hours of 2: 00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.. A private family service and interment will follow on Monday, January 16th. On line condolences accepted at www.amgeorgefh.on.ca

JONKER, Nicolette M. (1944-2006)
Surrounded by family, Nicolette passed away peacefully at Saint Michael's Hospital Palliative Care Unit on July 4, 2006, after a valiant struggle with cancer. She will be forever missed by her life partner and best friend Mike HRYSZKO. Predeceased by her parents, Garrelt and Margaretha JONKER. Survived by siblings: Ena VAN ROOYEN (John), Gus (Tina), Tina GOLDIN (Bill), Vince (Edwina), and Carla (Tim GARRISON) and their families in Canada and the United States. Fondly remembered by her extended family and Friends in Holland. Nicolette was born in Vleuten, Holland and emigrated to Canada with her parents in 1957, only to return a few years later to study, work and live there until 1978. Returning to Canada as a Registered Nurse, she cared for patients in many hospitals but longest of all at Toronto's Saint Michael's, her favourite. Her caring attitude endeared her to her patients who were her greatest source of personal and professional satisfaction. Nicolette will be remembered by her nursing colleagues for her conscientious professionalism, tireless dedication and independent mind. To stay current in her profession, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies from York University in 1994. Always the caregiver, that attitude remained with her even as she became a patient herself. During her illness, Nicolette's many Friends and family lent a helping hand with home duties and driving to medical appointments. She had a gift for Friendship which was returned in abundance. The family would like to thank all of those Friends who were always there when needed. Special thanks to Doctors V. CELLARIUS and J. ARVANITIS of Mt. Sinai Hospital, and staff of the Community Care Access Centre who provided the excellent care which permitted her to stay at home for a long time. A heart felt thank you to Doctor Ellen WARNER of Sunnybrook Hospital for years of compassionate care. Thank you to Doctor HAQ and staff of the Medical Day Care Unit and the staff of the Palliative Care Unit of Saint Michael's Hospital who so ably provided compassionate care in the final stages of her illness. The spiritual guidance given by Pastor John TENYENHUIS was enormously helpful and very much appreciated. Cremation having taken place, a Memorial Celebration will be held at the Christian Reformed Church, 800 Burnhamthorpe Rd, Etobicoke on August 11th at 2: 00 p.m. If desired, donations in memory of Nicolette M. JONKER may be made to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for breast cancer research at www.cbcf.org or call 1-866-373-6313 ext. 350
