PETRIE, Jack
In loving memory of my dear father, Jack PETRIE, who left us on January 12, 2006 We little knew that God was going to call your name, If life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. We cherish all the memories, your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Forever missed by Debbie, Lee and Graham.

DONOVAN, Daniel James " Bud"
Daniel James DONOVAN, beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather died peacefully on the morning of Wednesday, May 30th, 2007 in Toronto. He was 92. Daniel was born on June 8, 1914 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Affectionately called 'Bud' by his Friends and family, he followed a strict golfer's diet; he lived on greens as much as possible. Already a natural at the age of 9, he quickly became an accomplished amateur golfer as a teenager and burst into prominence in the early 1930s. Having won the Manitoba Junior title in 1929 and the Manitoba Open in 1933, he was one of eight Canadian amateur golfers sent by the Royal Canadian Golf Association on a Goodwill Tour of Britain in 1935. He was the only one to reach the fifth round of the British Amateur Championship. He made quite an impression with his fine swing and long distance hitting. The press called him 'the last of the gallant Canadians.' The most outstanding performance of his golf career came later in 1935. In the first General Brock Open Championship - a tournament open to amateurs and professionals - he was runnerup to American professional, Tony Manero, beating every other U.S. and Canadian professional player. He was also the first Canadian to receive a golf scholarship to a U.S. university (University of Notre Dame in Indiana). During the Second World War, as a naval officer, he met his wife Annette, one of Air Canada's first stewardesses, at a dance at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. By the end of the war, Bud DONOVAN had given up serious competitive golf and moved east, to work in the insurance business. Always quick to tell an entertaining story, he excelled in his lifelong career in sales. He was a member of Scarboro Golf and Country Club and gave back his enjoyment and passion for golf by working as a publicity officer for the Ontario Golf Association. He was also a colour commentator for major Canadian golf events on CFRB radio in Toronto and for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and television for 15 years. Bud is survived by his three daughters Anne SCHWALM (Andrew SCHWALM,) Louise DONOVAN (Willi VOGL,) and Nora DONOVAN- WARD (Julian WARD) four grandchildren, Natalie PETTI (Tom PETTI,) Doctor Stephanie JACOBS (Dr. Larry JACOBS), Kimberley McKEOWN, and Erin McKEOWN and four great-grandchildren, Donovan, Paige, Elle and Lawrence JACOBS. Bud joins his loving wife Annette, who passed away in 1997. His ways were gentle and his sense of humour was understated. Bud had an ideal golfing temperament, a quiet and unassuming manner, and an infectious smile. His was a life of many great moments both on and off the course. A private mass and celebration of his life was held on June 2, 2007. His family would like to thank his long time physician, Jocelyn CHARLES, and all of the staff at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Veterans' Residence for their exemplary care and support. Donations to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Geriatric Research or Schulich Heart Centre gratefully accepted in his memory.

After almost eighty wonderful years, Betty passed away peacefully at home on August 20, 2007, surrounded by the loving support of her husband Andrew and children: Ian (Jaqueline,) Dawn LOUCKS (Barry,) Gail PETTINGER (Bill,) and Bruce (Patricia.) Betty, a woman of great beauty, empathy, spirit and quiet strength, was born in Montreal, Québec. in 1927; daughter of H. Maitland and M. Patricia YOUNG (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.) Predeceased by her brothers Ian and Brock, survived by sister Margot TAILOR/TAYLOR (Gary) and brother Ross (Alicia), Betty will also be greatly missed and cherished by all of her family, including twelve grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and by Friends throughout the world. Mum was a beautiful woman in many ways: a devoted wife, an incredible mother, always a good listener and considerate of others' needs. She encouraged her children always to look for the good in people and in life's situations. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren would be unanimous on the recent quote of one, 'G.G., you're the best brownie maker ever!' Having travelled the globe extensively with Andrew, she was always most at home in her coastal British Columbia environs, where she spent many pleasurable hours with family and Friends. No service by request. A gathering for close family to celebrate Betty's life will be held in Victoria near the date that would otherwise have seen Betty celebrating her sixtieth wedding anniversary with her beloved husband. The family offers thanks for the wonderful support, care and kindness of the Victoria Hospice Society and Beacon Community Services home care givers. No flowers by request. If desired, the family would appreciate donations made to the British Columbia Lung Association or a charity of choice.
