KELLY, Jewel Theresa (née ELLEMENT)
Passed away after a sudden illness in Toronto on November 27, 2007, at age 77, surrounded by family and her special friend Bev Smart FITCH. She will be sadly missed by her daughter Debbie, sons David and Daniel and daughter-in-law Susan. She was predeceased by her youngest daughter, Colleen. Proud and loving grandmother to Stephen FREITAG, Angela KELLY, Christina WHITE/WHYTE, Jennifer WHITE/WHYTE, and Kendra KELLY. Youngest sister of Nadine and Jacqueline, who both predeceased her. She was born in Hornepayne, Ontario to John and Mary (née FREEMAN) ELLEMENT, and subsequent to her own mother's death at age 3, she and her sisters were cared for by Aunt Melda SWAN in Ottawa. She attended Maxwell P.S. and Nepean H.S. Her caring nature led her to aspire to be a physiotherapist, however circumstances did not allow for that dream to be pursued at that time. She returned to a railway town in Northern Ontario as a bride of Howard, where her four children were born. The children spent their early years in Capreol, where she was a tireless volunteer in her adopted church and community. At age 37, she returned to Ottawa, to be closer to her sisters, with her 4 children, and embarked on a new career as a single mother, learned a new profession and resumed her work in the community. She had a long career with Royal Insurance, where in the latter years, both in Ottawa, and after a promotion to head office in Toronto, she was a compassionate advocate for head and spinal cord injury victims ensuring they received equitable treatment and rehabilitation. Jewel was a committed proponent of the introduction of the graduated drivers licensing in Ontario, to reduce grievous injury and tragic mortality amongst the young. Jewel campaigned passionately, for many decades, for availability of reasonable housing for the working poor and single parent families by volunteering with both the Ontario and Ottawa Housing Authorities. She served on the Social Planning Council for many years, and contributed her skills with many other support groups, and election campaigns. She was an avid fan of traveling and the outdoors, a skilled photographer and pianist, a wonderful cook and an amazing baker, an expert seamstress, a patient practitioner of the art and skill of knitting and crocheting, and an accomplished green thumb. The family will receive Friends at the Tubman Funeral Home, 403 Richmond Rd, (at Roosevelt), Ottawa, 613-722-6559, from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Monday, December 3. Service will be held in the chapel on Tuesday December 4 at 11: 00 a.m. with internment at Capital Memorial Gardens, following the service. Reception to follow. The family and Friends are grateful to the compassionate and skilful staff at Scarborough Grace Hospital, especially the gentle and empathetic nurses and doctors of the Intensive Care Unit. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made as an expression of sympathy to the Scarborough Grace Hospital, 3050 Lawrence Ave. E., Scarborough, M1P 2J5. Condolences, tributes or donations may be made at www.tubmanfuneralhomes.com.

ELLINSON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-06-29 published
LEFCOE, Charlotte Sohn
Mother, grandmother, sister, friend. Born August 24, 1932, in Boston, Massachusetts. Died March 12 in London, Ontario of complications from cancer, aged 74.
By Riva ELLINSON, Page L6
Charlotte LEFCOE (known fondly as Chuckie) had an irrepressible sense of humour. It surfaced just before her last operation, when the surgeon asked her if she had any questions before being anaesthetized, and she said "Are you married?"
Charlotte, along with three sisters and a brother, were born into a traditional Jewish family. While she was studying to become a nurse, she met and married Nevil LEFCOE, interrupting her nursing career to devote herself to raising four children: Daniel, Robert, Jane and Andrew. They soon moved to London, Ontario They were among the founding members of the Unitarian Fellowship where my husband and I met Charlotte. We became close Friends.
After Charlotte's divorce, she went back to university to earn her degree, returning to nursing. She made many new Friends and was a treasure to her patients. She would call my husband late in the evening to ask him the punchline of a joke she had forgotten: she would repeat it to to howls of laughter from her patients.
What fun we had with her over the years: The converted school bus she had with the seats removed and filled with bean bags, with all the gang travelling down to Toronto to see Aida - singing operatic arias all the way down and pub songs on the way back. Every now and again, Charlotte would pull on her ape-man mask while driving to freak out all the other drivers.
Prior to her 50th birthday, Charlotte and I and two other girlfriends practised a tap-dancing routine and gave a performance at her birthday party to wild applause. Charlotte loved Mario Lanza and three of us concocted a bogus Mario Lanza fan club; when the gang got together, we would read make-believe reports to good-natured boos and hisses from our serious opera-loving Friends but we always sang together Mario's recording Be My Love.
At her funeral, her niece said that Chuckie was not like the other adults in the family: deep down, Chuckie was a kid, that there was a place inside her that held onto that precious quality usually only children have … pure joy for life. With this quality, I'm sure her life was extended by her visits to Montreal to be with her two grand_sons.
Charlotte was gregarious, volatile, endearing, frustrating, and unconventional. Always upbeat, despite family illness, she collected Friends everywhere regardless of race, colour or religion; she nursed us when we were sick, bringing along her Jewish penicillin (chicken soup).
Those wonderful years we spent together, like our youth, are gone but precious memories linger.
Riva ELLINSON is Charlotte's friend.

Canada's first environment minister had orders to clean up Ontario
Appointed in 1969 by premier John Robarts, he was described by a Toronto Telegram reporter as being like 'a sheriff from out of the Old West.' He also twice served as solicitor-general, resigning each time after separate scandals, writes Sandra MARTIN. He survived handily
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
A natural politician who loved the meet-and-greet of politics, George KERR was a cabinet minister in the Ontario governments of John Robarts and William Davis. The first politician to hold the environment portfolio in any jurisdiction in Canada, he was as far-sighted in his struggles to combat pollution as he was controversial in his attempts to ban phosphates and reduce automobile emissions.
The only son and elder child of lumber trader George and Florence (HINTON) KERR, he was born in Montreal but grew up in Esquiminac on Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula. As a child, he and his younger sister Patricia (Patsy) went to the village school in a cart pulled by their pony Julie. He was apparently heartbroken when his parents decided to send him at the age of 9 to Rothesay Collegiate, a boarding school located near Saint John. The school yearbook, The Blue and White, calls him Buzz and says he came to the school as a "wee mite" who "from the hour of his arrival" was into everything "official and not quite so official." He was very athletic, playing on all of the school teams, winning a middleweight boxing championship and serving as captain of the football and hockey teams in his senior year.
He graduated in 1942 and entered the undergraduate program at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton that fall. Barely a year later, he tried to enlist in the armed forces, but was diagnosed with tuberculosis when he underwent his mandatory medical. Instead of serving overseas, he was sent to a sanatorium where he was subjected to the clean-air cure that was standard treatment in those days. After recovering, he worked for some time in the lumber trade with his father before returning to university in 1949, managing to complete his degree in a year by attending summer school. During this second stretch at University of New Brunswick, he met a student from Spencer Island, Nova Scotia, named Joan Merrydith (Mim) SPICER. They both enrolled in the law school at Dalhousie University in Halifax in September, 1950. Afterward, he liked to claim that he got through because she tutored him. They were married September 1, 1951, and eventually had three children, Larry, Margot and James.
After earning their law degrees from Dalhousie in 1953, the KERRs moved to Ontario, settling in Burlington in 1954, where they both worked in the law firm Kerr and Hawken. As he had done at boarding school two decades earlier, Mr. KERR got into everything "official and not quite so official" from the hour of his arrival in Burlington, from the town council to the chamber of commerce to the Halton County Progressive Conservative Association. He was first elected to the Ontario Legislature in 1963 for Halton and held his seat (which was renamed Halton West and then Burlington South) for more than two decades, finally retiring before the 1985 election.
As a backbencher in premier John Robarts's government, he served on a number of standing committees, including municipal affairs and education, health and welfare, and won his riding in the 1967 provincial election with a plurality of nearly 6,000 votes. Two years later, in June of 1969, Mr. Robarts appointed him to cabinet in the new portfolio of energy and resources management, with the express mandate of cleaning up Ontario's soil, air and water. He was 45.
A reporter from the now defunct Toronto Telegram interviewed the newly minted minister in his Queen's Park office in January of 1970, describing him as tall, with a strong, firm jaw and looking variously like "a sheriff from out of the Old West" and "a trifle stiff and stern in the manner of a not-so-bad high-school principal." Sitting behind a huge desk and smoking his ever-present pipe, Mr. KERR said: "Pollution is the thing everybody seems to be concerned about right now. It's just amazing how the interest in it has boomed in the past 12 months."
He lived beside Hamilton Harbour, infamous for the belching smoke from the Stelco and Dofasco steel smelters on its shores, and admitted that it was "not the most beautiful body of water in the world." He made a promise to change all that, vowing that the bay would be clean enough to swim in within five years.
Five years later, he climbed into an old-fashioned horizontal-striped bathing suit adorned with shoulder straps and plunged into the water for a short but bracing swim, and emerged without any seeming ill effects.
When William Davis succeeded Mr. Robarts as leader of the party and as premier in 1971, he appointed Mr. KERR as environment minister. "He was a very able minister," Mr. Davis said yesterday, suggesting that heading up the first environment ministry in Canada was his major political legacy because "it was a major departure in terms of government responsibility and George did it and did it well." A year later, Mr. Davis shifted him to the ministry of colleges and universities, with postsecondary schools expanding rapidly as the baby boom shouldered its swaggering way into secondary education.
A strong supporter of his own community, Mr. KERR "strenuously and successfully" resisted the inclusion of Burlington in the formation of the Hamilton-Wentworth regional government in the early 1970s, according to Mr. Davis. "He was very persuasive in that regard," said Mr. Davis, who can still remember the arguments around the cabinet table before the legislation was passed in June of 1973. "Most people in Burlington would say that his success in keeping Burlington as a separate community was his main accomplishment."
Mr. KERR's political life was not without controversy. He was solicitor-general twice, resigning each time after a public clamour, although his exile to the wilderness of the back benches was short lived because he had never done anything illegal.
The first occasion, in July, 1975, involved the mention of his name in the trial of former Hamilton Harbour commissioner Kenneth ELLIOT/ELLIOTT in connection with dredging contracts. Mr. Davis reappointed Mr. KERR to cabinet three months later for his second stint as environment minister, where he remained until January, 1978, when the premier shifted him back again to solicitor-general.
The second stumble was more serious. On August 14, 1978, while Mr. KERR was solicitor-general and provincial secretary for justice, he made a telephone call to an assistant crown attorney on behalf of Francis HARRISON, a constituent who was facing trial for driving while his licence was suspended. According to Mr. KERR's explanation, he made the call not to attempt to influence the outcome of the pending trial but to learn whether Mr. HARRISON, a pipe fitter (who had telephoned the minister at home after looking up his number in the telephone book), would face a mandatory jail term if convicted. The intervention quickly became public and Mr. KERR resigned from cabinet on September 9, 1978, in an atmosphere that was already contaminated by John MUNRO, another Hamilton-area politician, who had been forced to step down the day before as the federal labour minister after calling a judge to offer a character reference for an accused constituent.
"I think it was something he felt personally he should do," Mr. Davis said. "George was one of those individuals who was very anxious to do what he felt was appropriate and that is why he resigned. He was not pushed."
Mr. HARRISON was acquitted at a trial that November. A subsequent report of a government inquiry into the matter questioned Mr. KERR's wisdom but stated that: "It does not seem that Mr. KERR's telephone call constituted an attempt to obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice within the meaning of Section 127 of the Criminal Code."
Although he never returned to the cabinet table, Mr. KERR served on a number of standing committees and was asked by Mr. Davis to become speaker of the house in 1981, an invitation he declined. "I think he was tired of refereeing," the former premier said.
Four years later, Mr. KERR resigned his seat and returned to practising law with his wife. "He was very dedicated to his family and of course he was supported by Mim," Mr. Davis said. "I would argue that she may have gotten more votes for him than he got for himself. They were a great pair."
About five years ago, Mr. KERR was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Although frail, he enjoyed what his daughter Margot called "his last hurrah" in February when he made an appearance at a fundraiser for Joyce Savoline, the successful Progressive Conservative candidate in a provincial by-election in Burlington.
Although Mr. KERR wasn't on the list of speakers, he responded to the call when he was asked to say a few words, said party chief John Tory, who was there to "motivate the troops" for the upcoming vote.
"He was absolutely magnificent," Mr. Tory said of Mr. KERR's 10-minute speech on how much he enjoyed his early days in politics. "I think it was a very moving experience for most of the people there, probably two-thirds of whom were far too young to have known him as an active politician. He summoned up everything he had."
In the middle of April, Mr. KERR suffered a fall and had to go into hospital.
George Albert KERR was born in Montreal on January 27, 1924. He died of pneumonia in a Burlington hospital on May 21, 2007. He was 83. He is survived by his wife Mim, three children, four grandchildren, his younger sister Patricia Lawson and his extended family.

ANDERSON, Brigadier General (Ret'd) Frank Elliott
(January 5, 1912-June, 25 2007)
Frank ANDERSON, soldier, civil servant, and more importantly, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather quietly won his last battle on Monday, June 25th, 2007 in Brockville, and joined his best friend and the love of his life, Anna Helena (Girlie), who predeceased him. In addition to his wife, he was predeceased by his son John Robertson ANDERSON, his son-in-law Wayne HUNT, his brother Tim ANDERSON, and his sister Jean BALHARRIE. Left to mourn are his daughter Fran HUNT of Brockville, Ontario, and her children Julie and her husband Rob and Adam; his daughter-in-law Margaret ANDERSON of Elora, Ontario, and her children Heather and husband Derek, Jim and wife Arlene, David and wife Tomoko, Rob, and Tim, his son Charles D. ANDERSON and Pam of Brockville, Ontario, and their children Elliott and wife Lanna, Kate and husband Rob, Neil and John; and eleven great-grandchildren. Frank was born in Ottawa January 5, 1912, the first child of John ANDERSON and Elizabeth ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. In the midst of the depression he attended Queens University (B.A. and B. Com, '1934), where he captained the track team and ran in the British Empire Games. On holiday back in Ottawa he met and fell in love with Girlie ROBERTSON. They married as soon as studies and finances permitted, and formed a true matrimonial partnership that lasted 68 years. In 1939 he joined the Canadian Army and during the war rose through the ranks of the Royal Canadian Ordinance Corps with assignments of ever increasing importance. At war's end he was persuaded to continue his military career with postings and further training at the Staff College in Washington, D.C., and the University of Toronto where he completed his Masters of Commerce before returning to Army Headquarters in Ottawa. Ultimately he served as the Director of Army Budget, and after the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces as Deputy Comptroller General. He retired from the Canadian Forces on a Friday, and commenced a second career in the civil service of Canada the following Monday. On reaching retirement age once more, he was persuaded to continue on as Chairman of the Contracts Dispute Settlement Board of the Department of Supply and Services on a part time basis, a position that he held to age 70. He lived a full and honourable life. He loved his family and his country, and taught those who knew and loved him to do the same. A graveside celebration of life and interment service will be held for both Frank and Girlie ANDERSON on July 7, 2007, at 10: 30 A.M., at Pinecrest Cemetery, Ottawa, followed by a reception in the Pinecrest Reception Centre.

CATTO, Barbara Jean (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With great sadness, we announce the death of our Mom, Jean CATTO, who passed away quietly at home, surrounded by her children, on Tuesday, July 24, 2007.
Born on May 14, 1931, Mom grew up in Port Credit, Ontario. Following graduation from the University of Toronto in 1952, Mom married our Dad, James Arthur CATTO on June 26, 1954.
Although Port Credit was home, Mom's heart was in Muskoka where she and Dad spent many magical seasons. After our Dad died in 1984, Mom moved north to Muskoka in 1986. For 15 years the cottage, the lake, the mergansers, the white pines and the beautiful rocks of Muskoka provided a sanctuary and served as a welcoming refuge for her far-flung kids and many other family members and Friends.
In 2001, Mom moved west to Victoria, British Columbia to be closer to kids and grandkids, and her new view of the Olympic Mountains across the waters of the Juan de Fuca provided much comfort. We feel very fortunate that following a short illness, Mom was able to spend her final days at home, surrounded by all of her children, close family and Friends.
Mom will be sadly missed by her kids: Joanne, of North Yorkshire, England; Babs, of Victoria, British Columbia; and Steve, of Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories. Also grieving her passing are sons-in-law, Colin GRIFFITH and David VERNON, her grandchildren Ben, Andrew, Jack and Julia, her sister Peggy ELLIOT/ELLIOTT of North Carolina, and so many other dear family and Friends.
Please help us celebrate Mom's life during a memorial service to be held, on Saturday, August 25, 2007 at 2 p.m. at Skinner and Middlebrook, 128 Lakeshore Road, Port Credit, Ontario, with a reception to follow.
At Mom's request, we thank you for donations to: Victoria Hospice, 1952 Bay Street, Victoria, British Columbia, V8R 1J8.

Born on July 25th, 1930, Fred lived his entire life in the Toronto area, growing up in the Beaches, and then later moving to Scarborough. He was a dedicated employee at Crouse Hinds for over 40 years, but his true passion was quiet times spent with his family, feeding the birds, walking in the park, Hockey Night in Canada, cross country skiing and "scooping up" Morris.

~ Brother, Husband, Father, Friend,
Your time on earth has come to end.
It saddens us that we must part,
Forever you'll be in our hearts.
Until we meet again. ~
