Debra Ann KRANENBURG went to be with her Heavenly Father peacefully with her family by her side at the South Bruce-Grey Health Centre, Walkerton on Monday, October 22nd, 2007 at the age of 50 years, the former Debra SCOTT of Paisley. She will be missed by her best friend and husband Bill KRANENBURG. Together they shared a great love for their children; Wesley and his wife Jessica of Scotland, Ontario, Nathaniel and his wife Laura of Port Elgin, Jeremy and his wife Katie of Southampton, Zachary of Paisley, and Emily of Paisley. Bill and Debra also received great joy from their three grandchildren; Josiah, Caleb, and Chloe-Anne. Debbie is survived and greatly loved by her parents Roy and Bertha SCOTT of Port Elgin, her sister Darlene MASHINTER and family of Waterloo, and by her brothers Don SCOTT and family of Calgary, Alberta, and Dave SCOTT and family of Wellesley. She will always be remembered by her many Friends and remain in their hearts. Friends called at the W. Kent Milroy Paisley Chapel, 216 Queen St. S., Paisley, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, October 24th, 2007. Funeral service was conducted in the Immanuel Missionary Church, Paisley, on Thursday at 2: 00 p.m., with the Rev. Tony GEENSE officiating. During the service, family remembrances were presented by her brother Don SCOTT. Barb JOHNSTON served as pianist and led the music portion of the service. Debbie was born June 16th, 1957 to Roy and Bertha SCOTT, and was raised on a farm in Paisley. She was educated locally, and graduated from the Accounting Program at Georgian College in Owen Sound. Very involved in her church, it was there that she met Bill KRANENBURG, eventually marrying in 1978. Debbie taught Sunday School for many years, and served faithfully as Church Treasurer for 25 years. Aside from farming, together, Bill and Debbie successfully partnered in business when they purchased the Beefway meat packing business in Kincardine in 1997. They then went on to acquire the First Base Restaurant on Port Elgin Beach in 2000, which they quickly established as a family favourite. She faithfully supported her children in all their activities, dreams and aspirations. Debbie enjoyed doing crafts, was an avid garage-saler, loved to shop and collect collectables. She was a wonderful cook who shared her meal creations with her many Friends and family. She will be remembered as a fun-loving, Christian woman with a wonderful sense of humour and a bubbly, contagious laugh. Her family will miss the compassionate, caring and generous nature with which she blessed them everyday. Her zeal for life inspired many people to love their lives to the fullest, to enjoy the small pleasures in life, and to trust God in all things. Interment was made at Paisley Cemetery. Acting as casket-bearers were Nelson HARVEY, Willard HORST, Ken TOMAN, Jim WALKER, Bryan WEBB and Ron WELLS.

SHADLYN, Joseph
Family man, button master, gambler. Born July 10, 1916, in Toronto. Died March 31 in Toronto of natural causes, aged 90.
It was a 1,000-to-one shot. When Joseph SHADLYN turned over a royal flush, dealt to him at a Miami casino in 1996, and walked away with $10,000 cash, his reaction was typical: inner excitement masked by outer calm and a slight smile. Joe's gambling spirit was always balanced by a rare ability to savour the experiences life dealt him while they lasted.
As one of seven siblings born to immigrant parents in downtown Toronto, Joe spent his early years shooting dice, playing sports and hanging out with his Jewish and Italian Friends. Despite the sometimes nefarious activities of his companions, he managed to avoid serious trouble, and actually became quite proficient at swimming, speed skating and handball. In the years to come, the sports would end but the love of gambling continued. Joe was able to handicap horses, play cards and shoot dice into his 90th year.
During the Depression, he left school at the age of 14 and found a job making deliveries on his bicycle for a button factory in the garment district.
Before he became Spadina Avenue's "Button Man," Joe served as an army medic in the Second World War. He took part in the invasion of Kiska Island, in the Aleutians, carrying cola bottles instead of bullets. Asked why he made this gamble, Joe responded that he wasn't going to shoot anyone.
After he returned from the war, Joe met his wife, Eva, started a family and immersed himself in the button business. Joe was never a proud man, and even after his first business in the garment district failed, he was willing to work for his competitors. Eventually, with the help of a partner and Eva, who would keep the books for more than 60 years, Joe started National Button.
Joe had his chances to build a monstrous company, but he was content with his small operation and enjoyed the other things that enriched his life: family, Friends, and gambling. Perhaps it was this contentedness and humility that, despite a major heart attack at 72, allowed him to endure cardiac rehab and work into his mid-80s - practising a lost art and maintaining a factory in an industry that had mostly moved overseas.
Joseph SHADLYN combined a keen and often quirky sense for the gambles in his life, with a lighthearted and unshakable appreciation for the moments along his journey. A few days before his passing, sitting contentedly by the fireplace in his son's home, a 90-year-old Joe remarked that he had seen it all and loved every minute of it. The smile on his face that evening showed that he truly knew just how lucky he was.
Luke JOHNSTON is Joe's grand_son-in-law.

Wartime pilot was among the first to introduce the Royal Canadian Air Force to the jet age
An instructor who had been denied a combat role because he was a superb flyer, he went aloft in a Gloucester Meteor in 1945. It proved to be the most memorable flight of his career
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S10
Ottawa -- Sitting in the cockpit of a Gloster Meteor jet aircraft, Bill GILMOUR of the Royal Canadian Air Force could feel and hear the immense power of both Rolls Royce Derwent 1 centrifugal turbojet engines as they idled quietly before takeoff.
It was December 8, 1945, and he had just received clearance from the control tower. Mr. GILMOUR pushed the throttles forward and the Meteor, the first operational jet fighter to enter service with the Allies during the Second World War, quickly rolled down the runway.
Seconds later, Mr. GILMOUR, a highly experienced pilot and flight instructor who was awarded an important decoration for his instructional abilities, was airborne over a war-weary English countryside. The fighting in Europe had been over for seven months, but the Royal Air Force and its allies, including the Royal Canadian Air Force, were developing and testing new aircraft for post-war service.
For the next 70 minutes, Mr. GILMOUR, an Royal Canadian Air Force flight lieutenant attached to the Royal Air Force's Empire Central Flying School, put his Meteor Mk III jet through a series of dazzling acrobatics. After more than four years spent flying two dozen types of piston-engine aircraft from Spitfires to Harvards, it was the first time he'd gone aloft in a jet.
After rolling and looping at a cruising speed of 660 km/h, as high as 15,000 metres above the earth, Mr. GILMOUR reluctantly brought his aircraft back to earth to the flying school's airfield at Hullavington in Wiltshire. He never forgot that flight for the rest of his life. According to one of his sons, Jeffrey, it even made history of a sort. "He told me that he was one of the first five Royal Canadian Air Force pilots to fly a jet, at the dawn of the jet age."
It was a highlight of Mr. GILMOUR's war-time career, all of which had been spent in Canada as an instructor with the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. It wasn't that he wanted to stay safe and sound 5,000 kilometres from dogfights in the skies over Europe, it was that he was simply too good a pilot to send overseas on operations.
In fact, on July 28, 1943, Wing Commander E.R. JOHNSTON of Royal Canadian Air Force Trenton's Central Flying School rated Mr. GILMOUR as "an above-average pilot and instructor." That was gratifying, but instructors of that calibre were at a premium and no matter how many times he sent in a request for a transfer to the war, he was turned down. It was galling, but he had to obey orders.
"He was extremely keen to get overseas on operations against the enemy, but the air force obviously saw that he was an excellent pilot so he was selected to remain in Canada to train others," said Jeffery GILMOUR. "He was frustrated because his primary aim was to fly with a fighter squadron against the enemy, but he never got the chance."
Day in, day out, starting in April, 1941, at No. 1 Service Flying Training School at Camp Borden, Ontario, Mr. GILMOUR climbed into innumerable Harvards, Yales, Cranes and Hudsons -- all yellow-painted training aircraft -- at all hours of the day and night. He flew with his students -- teaching and assessing them, cajoling, criticizing and encouraging them -- until he judged they were ready to go solo. Those who couldn't make the grade washed out, packed their bags and were reassigned.
Page after page of neat entries in his log book chronicles the students he took up over Camp Borden and Trenton during those four years. The list -- with names like Hall, Magwood, Freeland, Honeyman, Heard, Eaton, May, Jackson, Jones, Anderson, Smith, Curry, Elmes -- is endless. Ground checks, takeoffs, instrument flying, emergencies procedures, gunnery, night flying, there were thousands of things to learn and there wasn't much time to do it. Almost all of his students graduated, a few were killed during training and some lost their lives overseas on operations, but all were the better for his instruction.
By 1942, Mr. GILMOUR was so good at his job that he was appointed acting chief flying instructor at Camp Borden. That meant even more paperwork, plus supervising the other instructors to make sure that procedures were followed and standards met.
For his dedication, Mr. GILMOUR was awarded the Air Force Cross on January 1, 1945. "By his excellent leadership as a pilot he was been a mainstay in the training organization," the official citation read. "For the past six months he had the responsibilities of chief flying instructor as well as those of a squadron commander and has performed those duties most efficiently. The excellent work of this officer and the outstanding devotion to duty he has displayed at all times are most praiseworthy."
Bill GILMOUR grew up in Ottawa and Toronto. Working as a clerk and cashier for the Crown Life Insurance Company was pretty boring, so he took flying lessons and obtained his private pilot's license. "My ambition is to fly," he once wrote. "It has been my ambition every since I was a kid. I want to make flying my business." On June 25, 1940, after a frustrating, six-month wait, Mr. GILMOUR joined the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was awarded his wings on January 24, 1941.
After the war, Mr. GILMOUR, whose whole life was based around flying and the comradeship he found in the Royal Canadian Air Force, elected to stay in the air force. It was a good decision, since he was immediately promoted to squadron leader and participated in the air force's golden era, which lasted roughly from 1950 to Post-war planners had envisioned a tiny force of just 16, 100 men and eight squadrons, but by 1950, North Atlantic Treaty Organization had been founded, the Cold War was in progress and Canadian troops were fighting in Korea in support of the United Nations. By 1959, the Royal Canadian Air Force boasted more than 2,000 aircraft and 56,000 men and women stationed at dozens of bases in Canada and Europe.
Filling a number of staff positions across Canada during the 1950s, Mr. GILMOUR flew as often as he could, for a total of 3,567 hours overall. Starting in 1955, his 13-year-old son, Jeffrey, a member of 181 (Mosquito) Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Cadets, was lucky enough to be invited to fly Harvards with his old man on weekends.
"The first time we went flying, he taxied out to the runway. I remember the aircraft moving from side to side. I thought, he must be a lousy pilot, but later I learned he had to do that while taxiing in order to see out of the cockpit," he recalled. "We'd go both Saturday and Sunday, fly all over southern Ontario, fly low level so I could see everything. He'd do loops and rolls but always ask me if I was comfortable."
John GILMOUR remembers a highly-organized man who wasn't the most demonstrative parent, which was something the man had in common with many stiff-upper-lip fathers of his generation, but he knew what values to teach his children. "Loyalty, determination, leadership and dedication, all too absent in today's society. He was away quite a lot -- it wasn't a 9-to-5 job -- so we often didn't see him as often as kids who had civilian fathers."
After retiring from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1963 as a wing commander, Mr. GILMOUR spent the next 15 years with the Public Service Commission of Canada. He loved golfing, gardening, big-band music (he played a mean alto saxophone) and entertaining his grandchildren.
Walter William GILMOUR was born December 20, 1913, in Winnipeg, Manitoba He died of natural causes in Ottawa on Oct 7, 2007. He was 93. He is survived by sons Jeffrey and John, and by daughters Angela and Paula. He also leaves his sisters Audrey, Jean and Erna, and numerous grandchildren. His wife Sheila predeceased him in 1995.
