ACHESON, Lorne Victor
On August 1, 2007, a funeral service was held to celebrate the 86 year life of Lorne Victor Acheson who passed away suddenly on July 28, 2007.
Lorne was born and raised on a farm in Proton Township and as a boy, he attended S.S.#2 School sometimes known as the "Acheson School" until old enough to work on the farm. In 1942, he, along with his father, Stanley ACHESON, took over a live-stock trucking business that Lorne would continue to operate for 54 years.
On July 7, 1951, Lorne married Roma CHANDLER who had moved to the area as a high school mathematics teacher. Having been raised in the rather nomadic home of a United Church minister, Roma often commented that she never really had a permanent home until she met and married Lorne and adopted Dundalk as her home. Lorne and Roma raised a family of four children: Edward (Ted), Kenneth, Elizabeth (Beth), and Joyce. Roma passed away on November 24, 1979 after a lengthy battle with cancer and Lorne was to continue his life's journey on his own.
He continued on his own but definitely not alone While he kept busy at his trucking business, he also volunteered for years with the Dundalk Agricultural Society, as well as maintaining his involvement with the Dundalk Lions Club up until the time of his death. In his later years, he became a' "special friend" with Doris LANGDON and together they enjoyed two sets of in-laws, cousins and grandchildren. "Aunt" Doris was certainly the tonic that added years to his life.
Reverend Janet ERIKSEN officiated a service that was held in a packed church on a beautiful late summer day. Reverend Janet delivered the eulogy. Gospel readings were done by Lorne's granddaughters Olivia and Holly ACHESON. Olivia remembered a story of Grandpa, when learning that Olivia was going to England to study Archeology, telling her that there were lots of potatoes in Badjeros that needed digging. Jim DOLMER shared memories of "Uncle Lorne" when Jim was growing up and Janine GOSTICK shared her memories of "Grandpa." Ian LEITH played a lovely rendition of "Whispering Hope", Lorne's favourite gospel tune. Pallbearers were grand_sons Ted CLARKE, Allan CLARKE, Robert CLARKE, Jesse ACHESON, Steven GOSTICK, Kevin ACHESON, and Ryan ALDCORN. Flowerbearers were granddaughters Olivia ACHESON, Holly ACHESON, Melissa ACHESON, Heather ACHESON, Janine GOSTICK, Jackie CLARKE, Carlene ALDCORN, Randi ALDCORN, and Emily PHILLIPS. Special music was provided by Mary NICHOLLS, Dundalk United Church Choir, and Ian LEITH.
It is very hard to capsulize 86 years in a few paragraphs. A brief summary was included in the funeral service bulletin, simply titled:
Our Dad
A simple man in the best sense of the description. A humble man. A kind, loving and caring husband and father. A man who wanted only what he needed and needed little. Born and raised on a farm during the Depression, he was blessed with an inherent humility that, over his lifetime, became a more rare trait in people. Obviously we have no recollection of him as a youngster, only stories heard.
He loved the farm life. As hard-scrabble a life as it seems to us, he took pride (the little he had) in a job well done. He loved a new-born calf, a fat steer, a "hot" market, a fast trotter, and the smell of alfalfa curing in the windrow.
He loved his community and never yearned to move on to better opportunities elsewhere but rather to help improve the community he was in. As somewhat of a creature of habit, he loved his special places and routines. Anyone who knew him always knew where he could be found. Early mornings in his later years would find him at the Highway 10 Breakfast Club. On Sunday morning, he could be found in the same pew down to the left of the minister. On Tuesday morning he could be found at the Keady Auction Market in the same seat down to the left of the auctioneer. Just as he had been during his fifty-four year career as a live stock trucker, he continued to be a "morning person" in his retirement. He loved his church as any devout Christian would. Most of all, he loved his family. He loved family gatherings with a Sunday afternoon picnic on the front lawn. He loved his parents, his siblings, his wife, his special friend and her extended family and he loved us. He loved his many Friends that he met along the way. If you are reading this, should know that you were one of them.

LANGDON, Elmer W.
In loving memory of a very dear husband and father who suddenly passed away December 8, 1986.
There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear.
But always precious memories
Of the days when you were here.
You never failed to have a smile
Your heart was true and tender.
You lived your life for those you loved
And those you loved remember.
- Sadly missed and lovingly remembered by Doris and Donalou.

LANGDON, Gerald
By Ted LANGDON and Lynda LANGDON, Page A16
Author, polio survivor, entrepreneur, volunteer.
Born April 5, 1909, in Brighton, Ontario. Died August 2, 2006, of old age, aged 97.
At the age of 96, Gerald published his first book. Titled As I Recall, the book is a collection of Gerald's memories of growing up and living in the small eastern Ontario town of Brighton.
Born the sixth child in a family of nine, Gerald was given daily chores, ranging from gardening to tending the animals to churning butter and cranking the washer to tapping the trees for maple syrup. He became an expert on apples through growing and picking them; in his book, he lists 21 varieties that grew on the family orchards. Gerald loved to tell the story of all nine children having their tonsils and adenoids out on the kitchen table, noting that it took a full day for a specialist from Toronto as well as the local doctor and nurse to do the job.
By age 12, Gerald was known throughout the town as a visitor. He regularly visited family and Friends, and would stop anyone anywhere for a conversation. This became a lifelong trait. We can still picture him at the Crystal Garden in Victoria, British Columbia, aged 70, proudly turning to anyone within earshot and announcing, "I'm Gerald Langdon, from Brighton, Ontario, Canada!"
Although polio at the age of 2 permanently affected the mobility of his right arm, Gerald, who was turned down for the war because of this disability, laboured at various jobs in the Brighton/Trenton area: farming, picking and canning tomatoes, the Canadian National railway and in a manufacturing plant.
In 1945, he married Marjorie STILES of Toronto and, tired of working for other people "for peanuts," Gerald bought a local general store and gas bar on Hwy. 2, which he proudly and promptly named "Langdon's." He ran the store until his retirement in 1973, living in the attached house with Marge and their three children. In later years, Gerald had difficulty with the notion of dropping a loonie into a machine to buy a pop, recalling that he used to sell pop for 5 cents a bottle. He often reminisced about the night in the 1940s when the circus stopped at the store: He and Marge woke up the children to help feed the elephants, quickly converting a large washtub into a watering dish.
As a retiree, Gerald could not sit still. He worked part-time at a car dealership, helped run the bridge club at the drop-in centre, was head greenskeeper for the lawn bowling club, and assisted with the restoration of the historic Proctor House Museum. He is famous locally for his appearance in the annual Applefest parades, dressed as John A. McDonald, Prince Charles and Pierre Trudeau. A lifelong Liberal, Gerald enjoyed political debate and was up-to-date on the political scene right until his death.
For the last seven years, Gerald lived at the Warkworth Community Nursing Home. He routinely played bridge and acted as an advocate for patients who could not speak up for themselves. He developed close relationships with several staff members and will be greatly missed by them.
Gerald would have been delighted with the turnout at his funeral on August 8, 2006, and the kind words of so many Friends, relatives and neighbours. The longevity gene seems to run in the family: his 98- and 90-year-old brothers, and 95-year-old sister sat in the front row of the Trinity St. Andrews church in Brighton. The highest tribute came from a friend who wrote: "Gerald was an inspiration, a triumph of spirit over circumstances. We all were the better for having known him. May we all develop the strength of character to rise above life's challenges as he did."
Ted is Gerald's oldest son; Lynda LANGDON, his daughter-in-law.

OLMSTED, Marjorie Kingsland (née SALTER)
(February 25, 1917-June 23, 2007)
Marjorie OLMSTED lived 90 years of what she would have termed an 'ordinary life', but to those of us who knew and loved her, she was extraordinary. She brought joy to others in the simplest way possible - yet few achieve it - she made us laugh. Constantly! Her keen eye combined with quick wit left any situation open to her humorous quips. Marj will always be remembered as kind, gentle, artistic and creative, and most of all, funny. She loved the sound of laughter and even as Alzheimers slowly diminished her memory in later years, with a twinkle in her eye she managed to bring delight to others daily. This beautiful Scottish/Irish lassie with the gorgeous auburn hair and freckles was born in Quebec City on February 25th, 1917 to parents Lillian and Norman SALTER who later moved to Ottawa. At 14, Marj met her childhood sweetheart, Earl OLMSTED, whom she married at 23 and they remained together for 76 years. Not an easy feat when you consider they endured the 2nd World War being apart. (Lt. Col. OLMSTED [Ret.] was overseas for 5 years and is one of the few living survivors of the Normandy Beach landing.) For 2 of the war years Marj attended Kemptville Agricultural College, one of the highlights of her life. This was followed by a life being an 'army wife' with moves from Ottawa to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Fort Churchill, Manitoba, and Madison, Wisconsin accompanied by their four children - Eric, Valerie, Eleanor, and Bruce. She was able to put her home economic studies to good use in her chosen career as a devoted and outstanding Mom. Marjorie lived for many years on Broadview Avenue, Ottawa and in Amberwood Village, Stittsville surrounded by wonderful neighbors. On one of their postings 45 years ago, Marjorie discovered she had breast cancer. Her humour helped her through those dark times and upon waking from major surgery asked her doctor 'Does this mean I can no longer wear double breasted suits?' He encouraged her to find a new hobby so she signed up for art lessons as a form of therapy and found a hidden artistic gift that blossomed into years of painting (often with her beloved dog Lara at her feet). Using mixed media, she would amaze relatives and Friends with her original artwork and poems to suit special occasions. Always a journalist and poet, at the age of 80 Marj wrote an article entitled 'Diary of Breast Cancer.' Not only was it published in the Ottawa Citizen, but it has been widely distributed to thousands of women across Canada to offer them hope and inspiration. Her illness never returned and she lived cancer-free 45 more years! Marjorie's #1 passion was her family and grandchildren - Jana and Pat CLENDON of Calgary, Lani EL- GUEBALY of Vancouver, and Tally, Lindsay, and Geoffrey OSBORNE of Toronto - and many happy reunions took place at Marj and Earl's beloved Red Pine Camp on Golden Lake, Ontario where lifelong Friendships were formed and strengthened each summer for over 65 years. Beauty was an ongoing theme in her poems; Sugarbush Pointe and Red Pine Camp captured for Marjorie the best that camaraderie and nature had to offer. Perfect and personal pieces of Canada. Already sadly missed by her husband, children, and grandchildren, some very special people who will mourn her loss are relatives Noreen LANGDON, Rita SALTER, Ted and Muriel LANGDON, Alan and Waveney SALTER, Doctor Nady EL- GUEBALY, Doctor Ray OSBORNE, Judy KETCHESON, Marilyn EL- GUEBALY, Bill SALTER Jr., Mary and King CHAPMAN, Andrea and Albert PETERS, Doug and Jean SALTER, Red Piners and lifelong Friends in the Ottawa Valley. She was recently predeceased in August 2006 by her first-born son Eric, also by her parents, her brothers Bill and Jack, her niece's son Scotty, many aunts and uncles, fellow grandparents Ahmed and Andree EL- GUEBALY, and nephew Geoffrey LANGDON. In the summer of 2002 Marjorie said, 'soon I will be flying with wings.' We are forever grateful that we had a few more years to enjoy her company before she flew away. Marjorie loved words and here are a few of her own which foreshadowed this occasion.
End of Summer
Touch the rustic railings one more time And gaze at the quiet lake. The leaves are brittle now And rattle in the breeze. Feel the sun, half warm, half chill, And say goodbye to summer. A quiver is in the poplars; A shiver is in the pines, On the lake the waves wear A lacey fringe of winter white And one bird flies Into a fading sky.
Special thanks to Evelyn ALBAN, who is like a member of the family, and to the loving staff at the Claremont Retirement Residence in Toronto, especially Barbara. You are truly an amazingly loyal and caring group of people. A Graveside Internment Service will be held at Capital Memorial Gardens Cemetery, 3700 Price of Wales Drive, Nepean on Thursday, June 28, 2007 at 3: 15 p.m. For further information please call Tubman Funeral Homes at 613-722-6559. In lieu of flowers, donations in Marjorie's name to the Ottawa Mission, 35 Waller Street, Ottawa, K1N 7G4, would be sincerely appreciated. Anyone wishing to read 'Diary of Breast Cancer' can find it on Val Warner's website www.walkandtalkforwomen.com.

GRAY/GREY, Muriel May (née BEAUFIELD)
Passed peacefully away on Wednesday, December 12, 2007, at Arborstone Enhanced Care after a twelve-year struggle with Parkinson's Disease. She was in her 74th year and was predeceased in 2005 by her devoted and beloved husband of 46 years, Peter Forbes GRAY/GREY, her mother Margaret in 1996, father Charles in 1980 and brother Raymond in 2003. Leaving to mourn, her daughter Susan (Clayton DICKSON/DIXON) and grand_son Oliver, Halifax, Nova Scotia; son John (Lisa) and grand_son Gunnar, San Diego; two brothers, Calmond (Daisy), Ship Cove, Newfoundland, and Guy (Juanita), Saint_John's, Newfoundland and five sisters, Faye (Ross SWEENEY,) Halifax, Nova Scotia Marie (Scott SMITH), St. Andrews, New Brunswick; Patricia (Bud BEST) and Elaine (Hedley LANGDON,) St. Anthony, Newfoundland Pamela (Brian GUY,) Saint_John's, Newfoundland, and a large number of relatives and Friends. Described by her siblings as effortlessly clever, she completed high school at the age of fifteen and began teaching at the age of sixteen, first at L'Anse au Clair, Labrador, and later at her hometown, Raleigh. In 1953, after receiving her Laboratory Technician Certificate, she began working at the St. Clairs Mercy Hospital, Saint_John's, Newfoundland. Beautiful but shy, Muriel was introduced to her future husband Peter by a friend of the family. At the time, Peter was working with McNamara Construction building a highway in the Witless Bay area. He was young, handsome and had a charming wit that was rumoured to have won Muriel's heart by whispering in her ear 'You sure smell better than the guys at the bunkhouse!' Muriel and her family lived in Toronto, Ottawa, and Sudbury before moving to Halifax in 1973. Apart from being a dedicated mother, wife, and homemaker, she also worked for a time as an interior decorator and was known for her personal touch of having a 'sense of style'. Muriel was also respected as a tireless volunteer and committee member of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron where she served for some thirtythree years. Muriel was beautiful in mind, body, and spirit she had a musical laugh and a wonderful, self-depreciating sense of humour, and a gentle touch that made her unique to all who knew her. She adored her two grand_sons and was well enough to enjoy them both as young children. A sincere thank-you to the thirdfloor staff of Arborstone Enhanced Care for their kindness and dedication to Muriel and her family these past two years. Donations in Muriel's memory may be made to the Parkinson's Society of Canada. E-mail condolences to: susang@ca.ns.sympatico.ca.

LANGFORD, Ernest Frederick (March 9, 1920-December 1, 2006)
With great sorrow, we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Ernest Frederick LANGFORD, writer, musician, and painter. Ernest was born in Broseley, Shropshire, England. As a boy, Ernest was an accomplished violinist. He immigrated to Canada in 1950 and settled in British Columbia in 1953 where he began writing stage, radio and television plays. In the 1960s he began to write full time and over four decades produced 24 novels, 20 full-length stage plays, many short stories, and a collection of poetry. The hallmarks of Ernest's work are originality and imaginative power. He was a self-educated man and prolific reader and interpreter of classical and English literature. Music remained a great love throughout his life. Surviving are his wife, Caroline, his children, Rachel (Janette), Stephanie, Mark (Kate) and Francesca (Surinder). We love him dearly and will miss him greatly. His grandchildren, Michael, Adam, Cecilia, Hannah, Anna, and Rosemary will always remember him. A private viewing was held for family members.

WARD, Claire (née HIGGINS)
Died quietly on July 5, 2007 at age 87, the final small transition in an illness that had diminished her once-sharp mind and weakened her once-agile body. Her emotional capacity endured longer, allowing occasional flashes of her essential kindness, sweetness and bravery, even towards the end. Claire was born in East York in 1919, the youngest in a family of five children of Thomas Bartholomew William HIGGINS and Augusta RYAN, and step-mother Frances COOK. Her four siblings, Tony, Marjorie, Arthur and Ray all predeceased her. In 1932, the family returned to England and in 1938, Claire married Arthur WARD. They were intensely devoted to each other for 65 years until his death in 2003. They went through the London Blitz together, each working in civil defense. Then in 1949 they and their daughters emigrated to Canada where Claire worked with passion and commitment in a number of helping organizations in Toronto, including many years with the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and the United Nations Association in Canada. She also studied for 14 years, mostly in the evenings, to get a B.A. from the University of Toronto at age 54. Claire and Arthur were members of Holy Trinity Church, Thornhill and Saint Paul's (Westdale) in Hamilton. For the family, the sense of missing her began some years ago but now it is definite. She was "Mum" to Vandra (and husband Volker MASEMANN) and Kirsten (and husband Don THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON) and "Granny" to Charlotte (Erik DE VRIES,) Alison (Jeff GRAY/GREY,) Hilary, Bronwen, Rosemary, Galen (Ratana EK,) and Taliesin (Coire LANGHAM.) And we are happy that she was able to spend some time with her great-grand_sons, Leo, Willem and Felix. Elizabeth THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON will miss her honourary Granny. Claire will also be missed by her nephews Peter and Donald LOGAN and her sister Marjorie's descendants, and also by her cousin Joyce SMITH, and special Friends. We are overwhelmingly grateful for the kind care and companionship she experienced at New Horizons Tower, her home for the past five years. The staff there and her morning caregivers from Para Med have treated her with the kind of respect and gentleness that she accorded everybody. She was an exceptional person. Memorial service will be held on July 20, 2007 at 3: 30 p.m., in Dovercourt Baptist Church at New Horizons, 1140 Bloor Street West at Dufferin. Instead of flowers, we invite you to make donations to either United Nations Children's Fund Canada, 2200 Yonge Street, Toronto M4S 2C6 or to the Wilkie Fund at New Horizons Tower, 1140 Bloor St. West, Toronto M6H 4E6.

'Profound sadness' at GREENBERG's death
Memorial Sunday for former professor, local lecturer
By Denis LANGLOIS, Thursday, May 31, 2007
Well-known architecture expert, lecturer and retired university professor Bob GREENBERG has died from cancer.
People close to GREENBERG say he was a great teacher and a man who cared deeply about architectural preservation and an increased appreciation of architecture.
"We've lost a very rare and unique person," local heritage advocate John HARRISON said in an interview Wednesday.
GREENBERG, who was born in Bronx, New York in 1942, died Monday.
He was instrumental in establishing a degree architecture program at Ryerson University in 1972 and retired from the university in 1999 after a 28-year career. He and his wife Georgina bought a house near Dobbinton in 1992.
GREENBERG has a long list of accomplishments in Grey-Bruce and worked for many years on architectural heritage in the area. He also worked on projects at both Grey Roots and the Bruce County museum and was a founding Bluewater Association of Lifelong Learning lecturer.
He was vocal during the debate over the demolition of the historic Queen's Hotel in Owen Sound.
HARRISON said GREENBERG aroused an interest in people in historical architecture.
"He was a renaissance man in the truest case," he added. "He was a tremendous teacher of architecture."
GREENBERG is survived by five children - Noah, 34, Zoe, 31, Naomi, 22, Paula, 19, and Eli, 15.
Noah GREENBERG, an architect in Seattle, Washington., said Wednesday his father saw the "big picture" and a need to spread an understanding of the importance of architecture.
He said his father's home is filled with architectural drawings, sketch books, scrolls and educational books - enough to fill a library.
Noah said his father was "very close and patient" as a parent..
Georgina recalled her husband had a minor roll in the development of the World Trade Center in New York City, as a junior draftsman creating flow charts on pedestrian traffic. He was designed the award-winning St. Elias Ukranian Catholic Church in Brampton, Ontario, where a celebration of his life will be held this summer.
She said the local heritage work her husband was involved with became like a second career after retirement. He sort of "fell into it" after being approached by people in the community.
Ed WOJS, a Ryerson University professor who was taught by GREENBERG, said he has been receiving e-mails since GREENBERG's death from around the world from his former students.
"There's a profound sadness," he said. "He is the father of our program here at Ryerson."
GREENBERG served as an architecture heritage advisor in both Owen Sound and Collingwood. He worked on the city's facade program, was a consultant on heritage issues and involved in Doors Open and the city's historic walking tour.
"He had a wealth of knowledge and an ability to teach and impart that knowledge to all of us," Owen Sound Mayor Ruth LOVELL said.
GREENBERG advised on such local projects as the Intrawest development at Blue Mountain, the Loblaw's grocery store in Collingwood, the planned expansion of the Owen Sound Farmer's Market and early talks to move and restore a 19th century Mennonite church west of Rockford.
GREENBERG spent more than 600 hours designing and building a scale model of Grey Roots' Moreston village.
Grey Roots' manager Brian MANSER said GREENBERG, who sat on the museum's fundraising committee and lectured there, had a great interest in Grey County architecture and saving historic buildings and 'gave himself completely" to projects.
"It's tough moving forward without him."
GREENBERG also helped design "L'Chaim, the story of the Beth Ezekiel Synagogue," exhibit at Grey Roots.
"The exhibit is a success because of his efforts," synagogue president Jeff ELIE said, adding GREENBERG's knowledge of Judaism, sensitivity and insight proved invaluable.
ELIE said GREENBERG was Jewish by birth, but was not a member of the synagogue although he cared deeply about it. When the building was in danger of collapse, GREENBERG offered his architectural services free of charge.
The Beth Ezekiel Synagogue will hold a memorial service for GREENBERG on Sunday starting at 4: 30 p.m.
