DANN, Clifford Milton
After three philosophic years at Castleview-Wychwood Towers, Cliff died peacefully, at Toronto General Hospital on New Year's Eve 2006, at the age of 81. son of Olive (née BRASIER) and nephew of Lillian MONSON, Cliff never tired of remembering his glory days on the football and basketball teams at Humberside Collegiate. Along with spectator sports, he loved golf, cards, games, television, jazz and a good cup of coffee. With a work life beginning with Air Canada (then Trans Canada Airlines) and ending with Harrison and Blackburn Real Estate, Cliff always had time for his wide circle of Friends and anyone who pulled up a chair. Although dementia and Parkinson's Disease curtailed his activities in his last years, he never lost his enthusiasm for the visits from his daughter Cynthia (Dann BEARDSLEY) and his treasured grandchildren Rachel, Amelia and Max. "Grandpa" was extremely proud of them all but remained dismayed that they played piano better than they played golf. He enjoyed sports discussions with his son-in-law Jay INGRAM and conversations with his Friends, especially Frances STRETTON, Lou TICKINS and Royal COPELAND, and his cousin Pat GAVED of Guernsey, Channel Islands. Special thanks to Jill HALLAM at Castleview-Wychwood Towers and Doctor Melanie SPRING, Doctor Tony LEE, Lisa, Cecilia, Kayan, Lovelynn, Mike, Jackie, Judy, Linda and Pat of Toronto General Hospital's 13th floor. A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 13 at the Lynett Funeral Home, 3299 Dundas Street West, Toronto.

MORTON, Sheila Anne
Daughter, wife, mother, community activist, political pundit, wit. Born April 15, 1928, in Toronto. Died May 26 in Toronto of emphysema, aged 79.
By Susan K. RIGGS, Page L6
The year was 1933. My aunt Sheila, aged 5, golden curls sashaying from side to side, reached into my grandmother's handbag and stole her first cigarette. Witnessing the theft, my mum, Barbara, felt an elder sibling's responsibility to correct her. After all, my grandmother had carefully placed the newborn Sheila in her doll carriage, announcing that the baby "belonged" to Barbara. For years, little Sheila would toddle around in search of "my Barbie." Throughout their entire lives, the two sisters (and soon a third, Donna) "belonged" to each other as few siblings do.
Growing up, my aunt took a gentle pride in being the granddaughter of Frederick W. HALLS, founder and chairman of Fine Papers Ltd., a company as staunch and formidable as my great-grandfather himself. Entering high school at age 11 and graduating at 15, she became the first female (and youngest) family member to work in the family business.
My infantile pronunciation tagged my aunt with the nickname of Auntie "Kiki", a moniker that stuck. With the 1960s still a breath away, I tottered down the aisle as her flower girl, watching her exchange marriage vows with her beloved "Johnny," a handsome Scotsman with whom she raised three children: John, Andrew and Jane. Family life was divided between the Toronto city home and the residence at Pleasant Point on Sturgeon Lake in the Kawarthas. We all knew that she was fiercely devoted to us. She was our best friend. People were her forte.
Unsurprisingly, throughout the sixties and seventies, that heart of gold extended to the community. She volunteered on a distress line, at one point inviting a schizophrenic teen into her home because she felt he needed words of encouragement. (Who among us would be so brave?) Her community work also brought her lifelong Friendships with many in Toronto's newly arrived immigrant community.
However, it was the political scene that provided the greatest grist for her unstoppable, disarming, wit. My aunt, often with Uncle Johnny in tow, would stride into city council or campaign meetings and make it clear that she would not take any prisoners. Having inherited a love of the Progressive Conservative party from her maternal grandfather, she worked tirelessly throughout elections - stuffing envelopes, canvassing, burning the midnight oil, writing speeches for various candidates but always refusing offers of paid employment. Like so many women of her generation, family came first. First and foremost, she was "Mrs. John Morton" - her children remained her most precious possessions.
Susan K. RIGGS is Sheila's niece

Pol MARTIN, 78: Epicure
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
When a friend telephoned Pol MARTIN in the middle of her dinner party to lament the failed meal she was preparing, he told his panic-stricken friend to leave the back door open. He hurried over to her house, swept in unnoticed and deftly rescued the feast she had been attempting to orchestrate. The dinner party was a hit and none of the guests had the slightest clue that the meal had been created by one of North America's most celebrated chefs.
Although Mr. MARTIN could not make house calls to every cook in a crisis, he was welcomed into kitchens across North America, via his culinary television shows and the more than 30 cookbooks he authored. His sage advice about meal preparation centred on the basics. With proper guidance, good cooking is very simple, he said. "The more fun you have in the kitchen, the more you will want to try."
Born Pol HALNA DU FRETAY in Brittany, he was the son of an aristocratic French military officer. He grew up in a castle which he once almost set ablaze through an early attempt at cooking. He studied to become a chef at the École hôtelière de Paris and emigrated to Canada in 1954. He crossed the country working in the kitchens of the Canadian Pacific Hotel chain, before he was hired as a saucier at the Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan. In 1967, he moved to Montreal where he managed the once chic and now-defunct restaurant, Mother Martin's. It was during his tenure there that he came to be known as Pol MARTIN. He said that his new name suited his adopted country, noting that Halna du Fretay was too high-brow for Canadian tastes.
In 1970, he began focusing on culinary education. He opened his Montreal cooking school, L'Ecole Culinaire Pol Martin, and began making appearances on French television in Quebec. In 1973, he published his first book The Art of Cooking and also hosted The Art of Cooking, a nationally broadcast CTV television program. Lighthearted, and blessed with an infectious sense of humour, his personality was a perfect fit for the small screen. In 1981, three years after the show went off the air, Mr. MARTIN closed his cooking school and moved to Port Credit, Ontario There, he devoted himself to writing such books as Love at First Bite and Smart and Simple Cooking while simultaneously managing two French-language culinary magazines, Télé-cuisine and Santé menu.
Mr. MARTIN remained a much sought-after guest on television and radio talk shows across North America. He was a huge hit on Live with Regis and Kathie Lee and is remembered today by the producer, Victoria Lang, as one of funniest chefs to appear on the show. She also liked his recipes. "Anybody can look at Easy Cooking and complete a recipe successfully. I have a lot of cookbooks, but I especially like this one."
What made his cookbooks so successful was a culinary philosophy that centred around the idea that should be mere starting points. They were not meant to be followed religiously. Mr. MARTIN described his recipes as dependable, simple dishes that allow cooks to improvise, so that it can be made by everyone, not just gourmets. "I have vulgarized French food," he once said during an interview.
His daughter, Melissa HALNA DU FRETAY, said that, as a child, the kitchen had been the centre of family life. "My brother and I served the multi-course dinners that my father and mother would host at our family home in Pointe Claire. We learned early about table etiquette and hospitality. Those dinners were always joyous events in an era when a five-hour dinner was normal. Or at least it was at our house."
Pol MARTIN was born in Nantes, France, on August 3, 1929. He died of cancer at home in Carlisle, Ontario, on September 16, 2007. He was 78. He is survived by his second wife, Suzanne, and by three children from a previous marriage, Melissa, Brett and Abigail.

Wasaga man stabbed, friend faces murder charge
Twenty-nine year old Roger HALVORSON was stabbed in the upper body before being found outside the Riverboat Resort Saturday, police say.
And a 23-year-old Wasaga Beach man accused of second-degree murder in connection with his death was set to appear in a Barrie courtroom Thursday.
Police responded to a 911 call Saturday morning made by Riverboat Resort manager Nick SINGH.
SINGH said he found HALVORSON laying in the parking lot of the motel located at 280 River Rd. E. at 8 a.m.
He said in an interview Tuesday, that at first he thought HALVORSON had passed out.
"He was transported to hospital and later passed away as a result of the injury," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark Kinney.
According to SINGH, HALVORSON was staying temporarily at the Riverboat. He had been there only a few days and was renting by the week. The motel is known for having long-term tenants.
SINGH said HALVORSON and friend Noah COUTTS, also of Wasaga Beach, went out the night before and that they had been drinking. They returned sometime Saturday morning.
It was COUTTS, 23, who was later charged with second-degree murder.
SINGH said police cleared the scene Monday.
Ontario Provincial Police Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Inspector Dave QUIGLEY is leading the investigation into HALVORSON's death.
Police are not releasing many details about the crime or an autopsy conducted Sunday.
The same parking lot was the scene of the October 20, 2002 beating death of 20-year-old Rahim PREBTANI. Michael Gordon McCARROLL was found guilty of second-degree murder and is serving a life sentence for the death of PREBTANI.
His co-accused, James Luke SMITH, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to two years less a day.
