HARRIS, Eugenia Jennifer (née BARTMAN)
(June 8, 1921-October 10, 2007)
Jennifer HARRIS was a petite dynamo with a heart of gold. She had wide turquoise eyes and wore a winning smile under a crown of brilliant red hair. Never meek, she was a strong business woman, loving wife and devoted family matriarch. Born in 1921 to Sam and Anna BARTMAN, Ukrainian immigrants, Jenny grew up during the Great Depression with her 10 siblings on a farm outside Vegreville, Alberta. Under these conditions, she developed an independent character, a strong work ethic, a wealth of common sense and a belief in the importance of family. She maintained a youthful appearance and indomitable spirit throughout her life, advocating a healthy lifestyle and the power of positive thinking. After attending business school, Jenny met and married Perry HARRIS in Vancouver in 1946. They moved to Etobicoke in 1959 with their sons, Robert (Bob) and Al. In 1980, Perry and Jennifer bought Select Brushes, where they worked together, alongside their son Al. Following Perry's death in 1994, Jennifer continued to go to work every day until her early 80's. Upon recently learning that she had pancreatic cancer, Jenny declared that she had been blessed with a long, wonderful life. She was determined to have one last Thanksgiving dinner with her family and Friends, and having given thanks, she died peacefully at home two days later on October 10, 2007. By her side were her loving children Bob and Al, their wives Mary and Heather, and her beloved grandchildren Erin and Mark HARRIS and Alastair TIVY- HARRIS. She was the best Mother, Mother-in-law and Nana one could have, embracing these roles with characteristic energy and love. She also leaves to miss her, her brother-in-law Peter HARRIS, his wife Vivian, and their children Carolyn and Douglas, and her sisters Emily, Rose, Nancy, Olive and their families. She was predeceased by her siblings Minnie, Mary, Sophie, Walter, Michael and Eugene. The family wishes to thank Vivian HARRIS and Jenny's close Friends who lovingly cared for her during her illness: Diane and Peter WAKEFIELD, Patience and Mac ROURKE, and, especially Betty MILNE. Heartfelt thanks as well to Doctor Vincent MAIDA for exceptional palliative care and support for Jenny's wish to take this journey with minimal medical intervention and to die with peace and dignity in her own home. Private burial has taken place. A memorial service to honour and celebrate Jenny's life will be held at 12 noon on Sunday, October 21 at Ward Funeral Chapel, 109 Reynolds Street, Oakville. If desired, contributions in memory of Jenny's life may be made to The Ride to Conquer Cancer: www.conquercancer.ca., Robert HARRIS, participant. Jennifer believed strongly in taking responsibility for one's life choices. An avid bridge player, she lived by the motto 'In the game of life, play the best hand you can, with the cards you've been dealt.' She remains an inspiration to us all.

KAY, Gloria Violet (BARWELL) B.Sc., B.A., M.Sc.N.
Peacefully in hospital on Thursday, October 25, 2007. Beloved wife of orthopedic surgeon George KAY for 54 years. Dear sister of Anne BARWELL, the Late Cora BARWELL and the late Arthur BARWELL Jr. Gloria pursued a vigorous career in nursing both academic and practical. During her hospital duties, she noted, some 30 years ago that, progressively, nurses were not wearing a cap - the historical symbol of a nurse. To preserve them, at least as a collection, she set to, and 20 years later donated to the Canadian Museum of Civilization (and enthusiastically accepted) over 170 caps each from an individual school of nursing. Her collection is regarded as the largest one known. Unfortunately she died amongst a flurry of capless nurses, but her display still remains and will continue to do so. A memorial service will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 140 Brooke Street, Thornhill on Wednesday November 7th at 1: 30 p.m. Following the service a reception will be held in the church hall. In lieu of flowers anyone wishing to make a charitable donation may do so to the Toronto East General Hospital Foundation or the North York General Hospital Foundation.
