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.

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.

Numerous tips lead to arrest in Ontario killing
Man considered a missing person until two fishermen found his body
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A7
The mysterious disappearance of a man named Jeffrey MASON last year had nearly everyone in a Northern Ontario town talking. The 37-year-old welder's home and car had been found burned and gutted - his loyal dog's remains inside - and, for months, there hadn't been a trace of Mr. MASON anywhere.
But the mystery is no more: The body of Mr. MASON, from Dowling, Ontario, near Sudbury, was discovered in a nearby river last month, and this week an arrest was made in his death.
Two couples fishing on the Vermillion River on June 7, just kilometres from Mr. MASON's home, caught sight of something that had floated up from the 120-foot-deep river.
"Two of the people went out and retrieved what was floating and it was actually Jeffrey," said Sudbury police Staff Sergeant Sheilah WEBER, adding that Mr. MASON was found fully clothed, with a light-coloured cloth wrapped around him. He had died of blunt-force trauma.
Then on Wednesday, Sudbury resident Nicholas Aaron MARTIN, 18, was charged with first-degree murder in Mr. MASON's death. Mr. MARTIN appeared in court yesterday and has been remanded into custody until Tuesday.
Local police initially treated the investigation, which The Globe and Mail reported on in February, as a missing-person case. But with each passing day they were further convinced it was much more than that. His family always maintained that he was murdered, and that the killer burned away the slightest bit of evidence.
Staff Sgt. WEBER said Ontario Provincial Police divers had twice searched the river, once in the days immediately after Mr. MASON's disappearance, and once in the early spring after the temperature had risen, but could never make it deeper than 90 feet.
After the discovery of his body, the case became a homicide investigation.
Four investigators worked on the file full-time. Witnesses: began to come forward, forensic evidence - including a blanket that belonged to Mr. MASON that was found near the river - was analyzed, and tips were followed up, she said.
"Basically, everybody had a piece of the puzzle and now we've been able to put that puzzle together," Staff Sgt. WEBER said.
Police confirmed that at the time of his arrest, Mr. MARTIN was already in jail awaiting a trial for attempted murder in an unrelated incident from last November, when he had allegedly slashed another person's neck with a knife during a house party in the Sudbury area.
Mr. MASON's eldest brother, John, confirmed yesterday that Jeffrey and the accused weren't strangers. "He was known to him, but he wasn't an acquaintance," he said. "I certainly don't believe [his death] was random."
The discovery of Jeffrey's body and the news of an arrest, he said, brings an uncomfortable sense of relief to his tight-knit family - three siblings and a widowed mother.
Mr. MASON had moved back to the family farm in 2003 from Calgary to take care of his mother after his father died of a stroke. He never went a day without getting in touch with her or his siblings.
"It was just so unbelievably surreal. We always felt that something disastrous had happened to him. He could not, because we believed he would not, stay away from us for so long."
Despite the arrest, the elder Mr. MASON says there will never be closure with the family, not even with a conviction, because he never got to say goodbye to his baby brother.

Teens mourn friend's 'death by misadventure'
The body of 17-year-old Taylor WHITNEY was found Sunday afternoon in a backyard after he failed to make his way home from a party
By Anthony REINHART, Page A10
As an avid athlete and the life of many a teenage party, Taylor WHITNEY rarely lacked for company.
With a ready supply of jokes and a put-on Irish accent, the 17-year-old left his many Friends in stitches whenever they got together, which was often.
Still, no one was there when he needed it most - in the wee hours of Saturday morning, as he struggled to make his way home from just such a gathering. As other teens filtered off into the night, Mr. WHITNEY wandered in the opposite direction of his parents' Toronto home and into a backyard, where his body was found by a neighbourhood search party on Sunday afternoon.
"Death by misadventure" is what the police called it after an autopsy yesterday; the Richview Collegiate Institute student apparently lost his footing and fell down an embankment behind a house on Edgehill Road, a leafy street lined with large, stately homes in the Royal York Road and Dundas Street West area of Etobicoke.
Toxicology tests, still pending, should reveal whether Mr. WHITNEY was intoxicated, but his Friends said he was experienced with alcohol and there was drinking at the party, which was hosted by a teenage boy whose parents were not home.
Yesterday, the dead teen's Friends struggled with guilt for not keeping tabs on Mr. WHITNEY, who would have started Grade 12 at Richview Collegate next week, and taken the football field wearing his usual No. 24, or "two-four" as he called it, in a nod to his zest for parties and beer.
"I feel kind of bad because at parties, if people start getting out of hand or people start drinking too much, I'm usually the one who takes care of them," said Tyler VELLEND, a close friend and fellow Richview linebacker. "The one time that I wasn't there to make sure he was okay, he went missing and ended up passing away."
Mr. VELLEND said he had planned to go to the party on Valecrest Drive with Mr. WHITNEY, but a last-minute chance to attend a football camp in Virginia came along. He didn't know anything was wrong until early Saturday morning, when text messages flooded his cellphone from Friends asking if he'd heard about Mr. WHITNEY's disappearance.
When Mr. VELLEND arrived home that morning, his mother Kathy, a Toronto police sergeant, was already organizing volunteers for a search. She directed groups of parents, teens and neighbours - including the boy who hosted the party and his parents - from a command post at St. George's Junior School.
When a friend sent a text message to Mr. WHITNEY's cellphone at 10 a.m., police were able to determine the message was received, which meant his phone must have been within two kilometres of a cellular tower at Royal York Road and Dundas Street West. The search was focused accordingly.
At about 2 p.m. Sunday, Ms. VELLEND got the call from one of the searchers.
"She was like, 'All right, you stay there at the meeting point,' " her son said, while she headed to the discovery site on Edgehill Road.
Then, with dozens of volunteers milling around him at the command post, young Mr. VELLEND got the call from his mother: "We're looking at him right now, but there's no signs of [life]."
"There was total silence, and I had a can of pop in my hand and I just dropped it," Mr. VELLEND said. "I broke down and collapsed on the ground."
Michael MASOTTI, another close friend of Mr. WHITNEY, was nearby when the search party found the body. He followed Mr. WHITNEY's parents down into the backyard, past a swimming pool to where the ground dropped off steeply toward a ravine that flanks the Humber River.
"There were logs and rocks at the bottom," Mr. MASOTTI said, confirming that it appeared Mr. WHITNEY's neck was broken. "I think it was quite sudden. He definitely didn't suffer."
Mr. MASOTTI, 16, said he attended the party briefly on Friday night, and described it as typical of many.
"It's a house party; I mean, there's always alcohol," he said, adding that he saw "nothing overly serious" going on.
"That's what's scary; it can happen to anyone at any time," he said. "It happened to him and he didn't deserve it. No 17-year-old deserves to die."
Asked if anything can be learned from Mr. WHITNEY's death, Mr. MASOTTI said, "This isn't going to change drinking [among teenagers]. The one thing it will change is how people treat their Friends.
"They have to stay with their Friends, and if you see someone who's having trouble, you don't just leave them. You pick them up and you get them to their door."
Earlier this year, Mr. MASOTTI said, he was with Friends, all of whom had been drinking before a school dance. During a subway stop along the way, one of them appeared intoxicated, but told the others he was okay. The others continued on, only to learn later that their friend had wound up in hospital to get his stomach pumped.
Paul CHORLEY, another friend who attended the party, said he and about 25 teens left the house when the party ended at about 12: 20 a.m. Saturday. Mr. WHITNEY was among those departing, but "I guess unnoticeably, he fell behind."
Mr. CHORLEY and Mr. MASOTTI later heard that Mr. WHITNEY accepted a ride soon afterward, but got out of the vehicle a short distance away. There, he began walking with two other teens he did not know well, and reportedly told them "this is my street" as he headed onto Edgehill Road, which was in the opposite direction of his family's home on Ravensbourne Crescent, three kilometres northwest.
Asked if Mr. WHITNEY appeared different than normal at the party, Mr. CHORLEY said no.
"He was just his usual self," he said. "There was no reason, really, to take precautions; no one was really watching him because nobody thought we had to."
Mr. CHORLEY's father, David, said it's too soon to discuss alcohol or parental supervision in the absence of firm details about the party, but spoke for countless parents when he described his feelings about teenagers.
"You worry about the kids all the time," he said, adding that Mr. WHITNEY was a good kid with loving, involved parents, like most in the neighbourhood where he has lived all of his 51 years.
"Everything was above board. There was constant communication within the parent group. That's why his mother got so upset when he didn't make it home in the wee hours." (Mr. WHITNEY's mother called the CHORLEYs' home at 4 a.m. to ask Paul if her son had gone home with him.)
Calling the young man's death "a very unfortunate, tragic accident" that has devastated parents in the neighbourhood as much as his peer group, the elder Mr. CHORLEY said when it comes to teens, "You do the best you can with what you've got, and they have to make choices, because you're not there."
Tyler VELLEND, who hopes to wear his friend's No. 24 this football season, wishes he had been.
"I don't want to regret it," he said, "but I feel that if I was there, I would have made a difference."
