GIBSON, Lt. Col. Edward Slade, C.D., M.D., F.C.B.O.M.
On November 10, 2007, age 79. Beloved husband of Audrey WRIGHT (MOGGACH) and the late Jean SOEDER (mother of his three sons.) son of the late Capt. Lyle and Edith GIBSON. Proud father of Col. Neil (Eleanore) of St. Albert, Chris (Nicole) of Courtice and Brian (Alison) of Burlington. Step-father of Susan O'BRIEN of Hamilton and Warren WRIGHT (Linda) of Harrington Park, New Jersey. Brother of Joan BENNETT of Toronto, uncle of Karen BENNETT (Peter) of Toronto and John BENNETTT (Inge) of Ottawa. Proud of 11 exceptional grandchildren, Katy, Aidan, Kyle, Breanne, Taylor and Gregory GIBSON, Jesse and Matt O'BRIEN, Eric, Alex and Lauren WRIGHT. He was a graduate of the University of Toronto Schools and the University of Toronto. In his medical career he was in family practice in Welland and Tavistock Ontario. As an occupational health physician was Medical Director at Dofasco until his retirement, then Medical Director of the Hamilton Hospitals Assessment Centre. He was the first president of the Occupational and Environmental Medical Association of Canada. He was a strong supporter of Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Ergonomics within industry and was an honourary fellow of the Association of Canadian Ergonomists. In his research as a Clinical Professor in the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McMaster University he was the first to identify the association between steel foundry work and lung cancer. With his colleagues at Dofasco demonstrated the hearing loss could occur at noise levels of 85 decibels (formerly thought to be a 'safe' level). His research on low back pain demonstrated that pre-employment back x-rays did not predict future back pain, other research involved cardiovascular disease and hypertension in steelworkers and latterly the impact of sleep problems on adolescent students. In the Canadian Forces he had been a Flight Surgeon in the Royal Canadian Air Force and in the R.C.A.M.C.(M) was Commanding Officer of 12 Medical Company, Kitchener, and 16 Medical Company, Hamilton. In the community he was President of SleeplWake Disorders Canada and had been a director of the Art Gallery of Hamilton, the Hamilton Burlington Big Brother Association and Pet Trust (University of Guelph). He was a member of Saint Paul's Anglican Church, Westdale. We would particularly like to thank the Staff of the Community Care Access Centre for their vital help. The Juravinski Centre, Dr. Hotte, Doctor Craigie, Maryanne were particularly efficient and compassionate. Very special thanks to Doctor Grant Taylor and the caring staff of the Doctor Bob Kemp Hospice. The family will receive Friends at The Swackhamer, Blachford and Wray Funeral Home, 1341 Main St. W., Hamilton, 905-522-9221, on Tuesday November 12, 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Service will be held on Wednesday at Saint Paul's Anglican Church, Westdale, at 11 a.m. Cremation to follow. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Doctor Bob-Kemp Hospice, Saint Paul's Anglican Church or the charity of your choice.

Nonetheless, Eva remained, to Friends and family, an optimistic and witty entertainer who endured without complaint. 'Her stories are remembered, her spirit is embraced'.

BOISSONNEAU, Alice Irene (EEDY)
In Guelph, Ontario, December 9, 2007. Novelist, poet, short-story writer, social worker by training. Born in Walkerton, Ontario, in 1918, raised in Saint Marys, Ontario, graduated in 1939 from Victoria College, University of Toronto. Loving wife of the late Arthur BOISSONNEAU. Predeceased by her sister, Elizabeth Eedy Brown FRYE (1997,) and her brother, John W. EEDY (1996.) Alice began her adult life as a hospital social worker in Toronto and Vancouver, and wrote short stories in her spare time. Her work appeared in the Canadian Forum, Alphabet magazine, Exile: A Literary Quarterly, and she wrote for the Anthology series on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. During her life with Arthur, a specialist in forestry, Alice took to writing in an isolated trailer in the northern Ontario woods, in the "clement" months. Her publications included two novels, Eileen McCullough (1976), shortlisted in 1977 for the W.H. Smith/Books in Canada First Novel Award, and A Sudden Brightness (1994); and a short story, "The McCrimmons", in Stories from Ontario (Germaine Warkentin, ed., 1974). In 1992, she published There Will Be Gardens, a poignant memoir of life in Toronto. A Globe and Mail review at the time described this latter book as mining both the grace, and the "sour, sad stillness" of pre-"world-class" Toronto, in a "long, hypnotic chant…to great literary effect". Her family remembers her as a wonderful cook, who loved music, and encouraged Arthur's recorder group; in her young life, Alice sang folk songs and arias, seated at the piano with her mother. Alice leaves her sisters-in-law, Dorothy EEDY of Saint Marys and Marie MILLER of Woodbridge; her godson, Sy BENSON of Brantford, and her friend Kelli ARPPE of Guelph; and many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews, in communities throughout Canada; and in Hong Kong, China, and London, England. A gathering for family and Friends will take place at 1: 00 p.m. on January 12, 2008, at 54 Paisley Street in Guelph. For further information, please call Gilchrist Chapel in Guelph, at (519) 824-0031. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider a donation to Amnesty International Canada, or Oxfam Canada.

BUCKLES- BORCHERT, AGNES
On July 1, 2007, Mrs. Agnes 'Aggie' BUCKLES- BORCHERT of Edmonton passed in to the loving hands of the Lord at the age of 89 years. Her husband Leo BORCHERT and her sister Iris LIPINSKI predecease her. Aggie is survived by her sisters: Joyce JONES (Toronto) and Madeline PAPE (Edmonton) nieces; Gwen BENTLEY (Edmonton,) Barbara JONES (San Francisco), Pamela JONES (Montreal) and Jennifer JONES (Toronto) nephews; David and Rodger PAPE (Edmonton,) and Peter and Andre LIPINSKI (Toronto.) Aggie's life was the epitome of the three Es: educate, enlighten and entertain. Her life-long career as an educator began at the young age of eighteen in a one-room schoolhouse in Wetaskiwin and led to English Department head at NcNally S.H. Although she retired from teaching after 40 years, her love of education continued, finding her tutoring many students and relatives, teaching inmates of Fort Saskatchewan Jail and speaking at many conventions and workshops. She worked for equal pension rights for women teachers and was a founding member of the Edmonton Chapter of the Canadian College of Teachers. Aggie had a passion for the arts and loved to stir others to explore and enjoy the arts. Along with playing the piano and organ, writing plays and books, she was the organizer and director of the Edmonton Youth Chorus and the Canadettes, a group that also performed for CFRN Radio and television. She was a great supporter of many music students, helping them to achieve their dreams by buying musical instruments and underwriting concerts. She coordinated musical comedies including a creative production of 'Brigadoon' and co-edited a drama text, 'Nobody in the Cast'. Aggie loved to bring people together. She would often open her home; inviting people of all walks of life to meet and mingle and party. She will be fondly remembered by her many Friends, family, and former students. A Memorial Service will be held at Robertson-Wesley United Church on Friday, July 06, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. Friends who so wish may make memorial donations directly to the Taylor University College and Seminary, 11523-23 Avenue, Edmonton T6J 4T3 Connelly-McKinley Ltd., 10011114th St. Edmonton, Alberta: (780) 422-2222, to send condolences: www.connelly-mckinley.com

DAVIES, John Picton and Beverley Ann (née LEWIS)
John Picton DAVIES died suddenly of congestive heart failure on Thursday, November 8, 2007. He was 87. Born in Ton Pentre, Wales in 1920, Picton enjoyed Jack London novels, hiking, exploring caves, and climbing mountains. His determination and intelligence led to notable achievements throughout his life. At age ten he played violin in an otherwise all-adult orchestra. He won scholarships to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge University. After graduating from Cambridge, he joined the British Army 3rd Infantry Division, where he was the youngest officer in his battalion. On June 12, 1944 at the age of twenty-four he landed in France in command of a landing craft, and thirty men. He fought through France and Germany, and remained in the occupying forces until after the war ended. He emigrated to Canada in 1947 and began a successful corporate career in Montreal and later Toronto. He married Iris Elanor BENTLEY in 1958. They had three sons Tudor, Morgan, and Trevor. Iris died of cancer in March, 1969. Picton remarried that December to Beverly Ann LEWIS, a primary school teacher. With her encouragement he earned his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Charter, and started his own business, The Polymetric Report. He retired in the year 2000 at the age of eighty. He remained independent and active until the very end. Beverley Ann DAVIES (née LEWIS) died at home on November 11, 2007 at age 74, at home, with her family, after a lengthy and courageous battle against Hepatitis C with multiple complications. Born in 1933 in Guelph, Ontario, she often reminisced about growing up in Peterborough during the Great Depression. After her first day of school, she told her mother, 'I love school. I'm going to be a teacher.' Ann grew up to be a highly respected elementary school teacher in Hamilton, Calgary and Toronto. She took particular pride in teaching children to read. Former students would often greet her decades later with fond memories of her classes. Ann married Picton DAVIES in 1969. They enjoyed travels in Europe and New England and had a particular love for Stowe, Vermont. Ann often combined her love of travel with her activities in the Peace movement and Voice of Women. She was also an active member of Parkwoods United Church. Ann's generous, outgoing nature, her marvelous stories and unique sense of humour brought joy to many people. She will be deeply missed by her family and her many Friends. Ann and Picton are survived by Ann's sister Barbara, Picton's brother Mostyn and his sister Moya, their sons Tudor, Morgan and Trevor, and their grandchildren Meredith and Graham. A Celebration of Life for Ann and Picton DAVIES will be held at Parkwoods United Church, 85 Parkwoods Village Drive, Don Mills, Ontario on Friday, November 16 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to your favorite charity would be appreciated by their family.
