Born Earl REIBEL in Kitchener in 1930, he joined the Red Wings in 1953 and helped the team capture back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1954-55 and 1955-56. He finished in the top 10 in National Hockey League scoring in each of his first three years and won the Lady Byng Trophy in the 1956-57 season.
He was the only player to dethrone Gordie Howe as the Red Wings' top scorer between 1950 and 1964.
Mr. REIBEL was traded to Chicago in 1957 and later played for the Boston Bruins.

In loving memory of a beloved mother and friend, Dora Ellen (LINTON) REID, who passed away July 22, 2002 in her 93rd year.
We often lie awake at night,
When the world is fast asleep,
And take a walk down memory lane,
With tears upon our cheeks.
The happy years we had with you,
Are worth their weight in gold,
The joy and laughter that you gave,
Are ours to have and hold.
- Forever loved and treasured by the Reid Family and Kevin LONG.

FURBER, Jean Alice (née ROLLINGS)
It is with great sadness that the family of Jean Alice FURBER announce her passing on May 29th, 2007, in her 84th year, after her courageous battle with stroke/leukemia. Jean passed peacefully away at the Village of Taunton Mills Nursing Home, Whitby, Ontario, the way she lived, with grace and dignity, in the presence of her family. Beloved and cherished wife of Roy Francis FURBER, who passed away in 2000 after 54 years of marriage. Devoted and loving mother of daughter Susan (predeceased 1988) and sons Michael and wife Jacqui and Geoffrey and wife Liz. Beloved grandmother of Sarah (Andrew), Ben, Cody (Tami), Tom, Aimee, Neil and Jane. Proud great-grandmother of Trenton and Dylan. Faithful sister to brother John ROLLINGS and wife Anne and sister-in-law Mavis and family. Left also to mourn are her nieces and nephews, Tim, Judy and Peter. Also mourning, are Rosemary, Maggie, Harry and Margaret, Pauline and Hugh, Eiry, Isobel and John, Cynthia and Ian, Nagu and Suseela, Norm and Linda, whose Friendship brought lifelong companionship and happiness to Jean. Waiting for her in heaven with her beloved Roy and daughter Susan are grand_son Nick and nephew Chris and parents Tim and Ruby ROLLINGS and Charlie, a wonderful canine friend with whom she shared a special relationship. Born in Westcliff on Sea, England, Jean received her training as a nurse at Peace Memorial Hospital in Watford. She worked at Bushey Health Hospital from 1942-1944. With her marriage to Roy came new chapters and adventures in a full and rewarding life, raising children, setting up homes in England, Egypt and South Africa, becoming known as the 'Pine Lady' in her 50's restoring and selling Welsh furniture, before moving to Canada in 1989, living near her son Michael and family. Despite a seemingly fragile appearance, particularly in later years, Jean possessed an indomitable spirit and an extraordinary strength and resolve, which enabled her, time and time again, to bounce back from a steady progression of serious conditions and illnesses. The core of her being was wrapped in the warm embrace of family. Jean radiated a quiet, dignified, old-fashioned grace and style. Her silent strength was evident to her final breath. God speed, Jean! Our family would like to thank Jeff DONOVAN, Doctor REID and the wonderful staff at Taunton Mills Nursing Home whose dedication and professionalism showed kindness, compassion and understanding each day. Jean's wishes are to be reunited with her beloved. A memorial celebration of her life will be held in England.

She was a co-founder and defender of Ontario's McMichael gallery
With her husband, she was always ready to do battle with anything that threatened the collection. As the more knowledgeable, she was also responsible securing significant donations
By Val ROSS, Page S9
Toronto -- About 35,000 schoolchildren a year troop through the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario Until recently, a white-haired woman with a taste for artistic scarves would often greet them. Sometimes, she'd stoop down to pick up after them -- whisking away stray candy wrappers as scrupulously as if the gallery were her own house.
Once, it was. Signe McMICHAEL was one half of the couple who created the collection of works by Tom Thomson, Emily Carr, David Milne and the Group of Seven, and Inuit and Woodland art and sculpture. She and her husband, Robert, donated 200 paintings to the public in 1965, along with the house that contained them known as Tapawingo (Place of Joy) -- and the forest in which it sits, about 40 kilometres northwest of Toronto.
"The sense of home that pervades the place today is due to her," said Tom SMART, director of the McMichael. "That kind of feel is her legacy."
"Without this remarkable couple, there would be no gallery," wrote author Pierre Berton, a lifelong friend and defender of the McMichaels, in a letter to The Globe and Mail in 1981. "[They] gave the best years of their lives to the fulfilment of that dream. And when the dream was complete, they turned it over to the people of Ontario -- everything -- the astonishing collection of paintings, the unique log building in which they were housed, and the setting itself -- perhaps the most valuable piece of rural real estate in the province."
Mr. Berton, the champion, invoked the ghost of Canada's first prime minister and aimed his lance directly at Queen's Park, which had decided to close the gallery and the estate (and with it the McMichael's home), for two years.
"In the light of the ludicrous and contradictory statements being made on behalf of the gallery's board and the Government, it is pertinent to question the real motives of the bureaucrats," Mr. Berton wrote. "For none of the arguments has been convincing. As Sir John A. Macdonald once said, in a different context, 'It won't catch the blindest.' The suspicion lingers that the civil servants are trying to get rid of the McMichaels. The public, surely, will not stand for this shabby treatment. Every Canadian who has spent an afternoon at this unique and splendid gallery owes a debt to Robert and Signe McMICHAEL."
The McMICHAELs were always ready to skirmish with anyone they sensed who wanted to move the collection or the institution away from its founders' vision, with Robert doing the talking, and Signe frowning and nodding vigorously in the background.
Her family, the Sorensons, immigrated to Canada from Denmark in 1927. They arrived when Signe was 6, settling in the Peace River district of Alberta. Her mother, Anna Tera, died shortly after, leaving Soren SORENSON to bring up his three daughters, Astrid, Signe, and Helen, in the approaching Depression. Yet Signe always spoke of a happy childhood, with a pony, a dog cart and explorations on cross-country skis.
A good scholar with a prodigious memory, she graduated from Alberta College in the opening days of the Second World War and was hired into the communications branch of the Royal Canadian Air Force. With demobilization, she took jobs in commercial radio in Edmonton, Vancouver -- and then Toronto, where she met a tall, confident salesman who told her he was building a business that offered bridal photography services.
"When I first met her, Signe SORENSON was employed as a continuity writer at [Toronto's] radio station CKEY," Robert McMICHAEL wrote in his autobiography, One Man's Obsession. "Impressed with the care and attention she gave to writing and scheduling the brief, inexpensive bridal commercials I purchased, I found that I was also personally attracted to her. In spite of the small salary I could offer, I was able to lure her to work at my photographic studio."
This passage is one of the longest Mr. McMICHAEL wrote about the woman who would become his loyal wife for the next 54 years.
"The title of his book tells it all," said Geoffrey ZIMMERMAN, who was Ms. McMICHAEL's legal representative on the McMichael gallery board. "But the thing that always struck me was what a complementary partnership it was. Bob was full of bravado, he could bully or charm; Signe was quiet but methodical."
"I always felt he kept her under a basket," said Dennis REID, senior curator of Canadian art at the Art Gallery of Ontario. "And I always liked her sweet disposition and gentle heart."
The pair married in 1949. Two years later, Robert went to see some bush land outside Toronto on the Humber River (and here his prose becomes genuinely romantic): "My pulse quickened and I knew I was falling in love at first sight; an affair that would last a lifetime. That evening, as I tried to describe the forests and hills above the yawning valley with its twisted river… Signe smiled at me and, I could see, was making allowances for gross exaggeration."
But she fell in love, too, and they bought six hectares. As Robert's photography business morphed into packaging products targeted at the newlywed market, he travelled the continent, leaving Ms. McMICHAEL to handle the construction of their new house. Soon, they were wealthy enough to fill it with Canadian landscape art.
By the late 1950s, Tapawingo had become famous for paintings and parties, with neighbours such as the Bertons, and surviving members of the Group of Seven, the famed association of landscape artists that included Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. MacDonald and Frederick Varley. Tom Thomson was Friends with most of the members but died before the group was formed. Later, the group expanded to include L.L. FitzGerald, Edwin Holgate and A.J. Casson.
As it happens, Jackson and Varley lived out some of their final years at Tapawingo, and some members of the group are buried on the property.
In 1965, the McMichaels convinced the provincial government to take over Tapawingo's operating costs and create a public gallery. In return, they were given the unusual right to live on-site, all expenses paid, and to occupy two of the five positions on the gallery's board. In 1968, after more McMichael lobbying, the gallery won Crown status, which meant that gifts could be written off against donors' income -- a precedent for all art patrons in Canada.
One who gave to the McMichael was Colonel Sam McLAUGHLIN, president of General Motors of Canada. "I doubt that but for Signe's Friendship with Isabel McLAUGHLIN that the colonel would have given his collection," Mr. ZIMMERMAN said.
By 1980, the gallery had become a conservationist's nightmare. The couple was ousted so the building could be fireproofed, repaired and expanded. In 1981, Ontario taxpayers paid $298,544 to buy them a big new house in nearby Belfountain, but it wasn't the same. They were unhappy to be away from home. "We'd still rather have Tapawingo," Mr. McMichael said.
Another festering issue was the gallery's mandate. According to the original deal, it was to collect works by artists "who have made contributions to the development of Canadian art." But what is "Canadian art"? In 1996, after curators installed a modernistic steel-and-concrete sculpture by John McEwen on the long entrance drive where the couple had once planted saplings by hand, the landscape-loving McMichaels sued Ontario for breach of contract. In June, 2000, they won. Ontario passed legislation that restored their board positions and reaffirmed that the gallery's mandate lay predominantly in realistic imagery.
This was the art loved by Ms. McMICHAEL, in particular. John RYERSON, now director of the Varley Gallery in Markham, Ontario, chatted with her about the collection in the 16 years he worked at the McMichael. "She was the more knowledgeable," he recalled, "though profoundly overshadowed by Bob."
Mr. McMICHAEL died in 2003. "He was the love of her life," Mr. ZIMMERMAN said. "After, she was preoccupied with her memories."
But for as long as she could, he said, despite knee surgery, she would go to the gallery to greet the schoolchildren.
Signe Kirsten Sorenson McMICHAEL was born February 10, 1921, in Sandersig, Denmark. She died of heart disease in Toronto on Wednesday evening. She was 86. She is survived by her older sister, Astrid WRIGHT. She will be buried at Tapawingo beside her husband, amid the graves of the Group of Seven. The graveyard was created by the Province of Ontario and is restricted to members of the Group of Seven, their wives and the founders. The graves are laid out in a circle, with rocks from the Canadian Shield as headstones. Members of the group not interred there are Franklin Carmichael, Edwin Holgate, L.L. FitzGerald and J.E. MacDonald.
The funeral will be held at the gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario, at 11 a.m. on Monday.

Born in Vancouver February 23, 1920, Robert attended Lord Byng High School, graduated from University of British Columbia (B. Comm. - Kiwanis Gold Medal, 1941 and Honours B.A. - Economics, 1942) and Harvard University (M.A. and Ph. D. - Economics, 1944, 1946). As a member of the University of British Columbia Economics Department (1946-1985) and Director of Academic Planning (1965-1977), he especially enjoyed teaching government finance. His writings include The Municipal Business Tax in Canada (1952) and a two-volume report, Economic Security for the Aged in the United States and Canada (1959). He served on three provincial commissions of inquiry on public finance issues.

He was awarded the Confederation Medal by the federal government in 1992 for outstanding service to the people of Canada.

Prince Edward Island plant pathologist led the world in potato research and breeding
Although unable to stomach spuds himself, he believed that with some laboratory tinkering the humble tuber could be the answer to beating famine in developing countries
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
As a boy, Orville PAGE had a bad experience with a potato. He either choked on one or had an allergic reaction. In any case, he never knowingly ate one again.
Yet he was to become one of the world's leading potato researchers and a strong believer in the introduction and expansion of potato production in developing countries as a means of alleviating hunger. The Ontario-born scientist worked in Peru from 1973 to 1985 as the first director of research and deputy director at the International Potato Center. The centre is a multinational institution devoted to reducing poverty through sustainable development of the potato, sweet potato and other root and tuber crops.
Dr. PAGE, known to Friends and co-workers as Ory, had earlier spent 12 years researching potatoes in Fredericton with Agriculture Canada and the University of New Brunswick. And he continued his potato work after his retirement through assignments with a number of development agencies.
As a young man, he was based in Prince Edward Island, Canada's potato capital, where he served as a pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. He went on to obtain a doctorate in plant pathology, to teach at the Ontario Agriculture College in Guelph and to spend a number of years researching banana diseases for the United Fruit Co. in both Honduras and the United States.
Colleagues at International Potato Center say Doctor PAGE set the centre's overall research policy while letting his staff get on with their individual projects without interference. They remember him as a charming but tough boss, and as a dedicated scientist with a commitment to feeding the world's burgeoning population and a reputation for looking immaculate -- even when inspecting agriculture projects in remote areas of the Third World. In his spare time, he had a passion for sailing and dabbled in studying sparrows, saying he was intrigued by the small birds' ability to adapt to local conditions anywhere in the world.
"Ory laid the groundwork for a highly recognized international potato research program," says Hubert Zandstra, a fellow Canadian who was International Potato Center's director general from 1991 to 2005. One of Doctor PAGE's major contributions, he says, was the development of sanitary measures that allow genetic material from potatoes to be exchanged among researchers around the world and to be made available for breeding in developing countries. Without those procedures, most countries would refuse entry to specimens taken from live potato plants.
Peter VanderZaag, a Canadian potato breeder, says Doctor PAGE's initial priority at the centre was to collect and classify wild and cultivated species of potato and study their properties. His team then had to find ways to transfer disease-resistant genes from plants that grow wild in the Andes to domesticated varieties, a complicated process because of the genetic makeup of potatoes.
Dr. PAGE also helped further the growing of potatoes from the plants' seeds, rather than from pieces of the tuber as had been the normal practice. This is important in Third World countries because it means all the tubers could be used for food, says Dr. VanderZaag, who was once Southeast Asian regional director with the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research, of which International Potato Center is a member.
Dr. PAGE had a special interest in late blight, the fungal disease that led to one million deaths during the great Irish famine in the mid-1800s, says George Tai, a retired New Brunswick potato researcher. Late blight continues to ravage crops today, and Dr. PAGE worked to find a way to prevent it by building up resistance. Under his guidance, researchers and breeders developed many new potato varieties and introduced them to suitable locations around the world. "To a large extent," says William George BARKER, a retired potato researcher and long-time friend, "the potato presence in the world is largely his doing."
In a 1994 paper published in the Canadian Journal of Plant Pathology, Dr. PAGE explained that potatoes yield more food energy per hectare than cereals and are especially valuable in developing countries that can grow more than one crop a year. The most critical problem in developing countries is the population explosion, he wrote. But potato production in the Third World is limited by the lack of disease and pest controls and the limited availability of chemical fertilizers.
Orville Thomas PAGE grew up in Burlington, Ontario, and learned carpentry skills from his father, English-born Thomas William PAGE, and used them later in life to design and finish a 12-metre wooden sailboat he called Caesar's Ghost. He passed his woodworking skills on to his son, William, a professional carver who lives in New Brunswick.
Orville's mother, Eunice Grace (née BUSCOMBE,) died when the boy was 3. He and a younger sister Grace (now BRIDLE) were raised by their father's second wife, Scottish-born Isobel REID.
The future scientist was not a stellar student at high school and was happy to sign up with the Royal Canadian Air Force when war broke out, says his daughter, Karen MARANTZ. He joined as a mechanic, but soon quit and re-enlisted to be trained as a pilot. He should have been turned down because he was colour-blind, she says. But he avoided detection by memorizing the correct responses to eye tests. Based at No. 1 General Reconnaissance School in Summerside, he flew low flights over coastal waters looking for enemy submarines. He was also the base's chief test pilot. Wartime flying in Prince Edward Island was so dangerous that 98 young airmen died there, mostly as the result of air crashes. While in the service he courted Norma Isobel ELLIS of Summerside and married her in 1944.
After the war he went to Guelph to earn a bachelor of science at the Ontario Agricultural College (then affiliated with the University of Toronto), followed by a masters and PhD from Iowa State College. From 1954 to 1957, he was an associate professor at Ontario Agricultural College. It was there he met Doctor BARKER, then a fellow member of the botany faculty. The pair went on to work together in both Honduras and Fredericton.
While in Guelph, Doctor BARKER, who had also served in the Canadian military, extolled the virtues of "army underwear" and convinced his friend to buy some with him at a surplus store. The pairs they purchased were too constrictive to wear, but became the basis of a long-running joke.
Once while Doctor PAGE was giving a scientific lecture in the United States, his friend dangled a set of army underwear from the balcony on a string. Doctor PAGE retaliated by having a pilot friend drop a package containing army underwear to Doctor BARKER using a parachute. The underwear passed back and forth on special occasions for half a century. At Doctor PAGE's 50th anniversary party, Doctor BARKER had a pair piped in on a silver tray.
From 1957 to 1959, Doctor PAGE worked in La Lima, Honduras, where he conducted research into banana diseases for the United Fruit Co. He brought along his wife and two young children. Mrs. MARANTZ says her parents flipped a coin to decide whether to go or not. At that time, United Fruit, which operated banana plantations, had near-total control of most Central American economies. He continued as a research officer with the United Fruit Co. in Norwood, Massachusetts., from 1959 until 1961.
The family then moved to Fredericton where Doctor PAGE was a research officer with Agriculture Canada's national potato program until 1964 and then a professor and associate dean of science at the University of New Brunswick until 1973. His work at the potato centre in Lima started as a one-year sabbatical from the university, but he ended up staying until his retirement in 1985. He hired staff and directed the work of some 50 PhD-level scientists and their research students. During his career he published 33 scientific papers and served as president of the Canadian Phytopathological Society.
On his retirement, he moved with his wife to a Summerside house that had been built for her parents. But he continued to work as a consultant with International Potato Center and such agencies as Canadian International Development Agency and the U.S. Agency for International Development. Over the years his work took him to more than 25 countries including China, India, Tanzania and Papua New Guinea.
In Summerside he put his knowledge of sustainable development to use as a volunteer board member with the Bedeque Bay Environmental Management Association, a non-profit group that focuses on local ecosystem issues. He helped with the establishment of the Prince Edward Island Potato Museum at O'Leary and worked on setting up a local library in a former train station. He also laid out a heritage tree walking tour that highlighted species imported from Europe by pioneers or from points abroad by early seafarers. That project won him the nickname Tree Man of Summerside.
In recent years, he began writing poetry, with environmental issues as one of his most common themes. He continued to keep up with developments in science until he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
Orville Thomas PAGE was born in Burlington, Ontario, on February 13, 1921. He died of pulmonary arrest on August 4, 2007, in Summerside. He was 86. His wife, Norma Isobel (née Ellis), died in 2006. He leaves his daughter, Karen Marantz, his son, William PAGE, and his sister, Grace Bridle.

REID, Thomas Christopher
Thomas Christopher REID passed away on December 19, 2007 at the age of 60. Diagnosed with colon cancer in 2003, his commitment to see and know his grandchildren helped him brave many surgeries and procedures before finally succumbing to complications. Tommy was a dedicated and compassionate husband, Dad, Grampa, son and friend. He was incredibly good looking, his jokes and anecdotes became more entertaining with each telling, and his genius will likely never be fully appreciated. Despite all this, he was still relatively humble. He was a master of lists, was always too early, and he left us much too soon. He always stood up for what he believed was right and stood by those who needed his support. His principled nature earned him the respect and admiration of many Friends and co-workers, and pissed off all the right people. To the end, his children were still finding new reasons to look up to him. He lived for his wife, children and grandchildren, and for this they will always love him. He will forever remain in the hearts of his wife, Susan, his children, Ginny, Tommy, David and Crystal, grandchildren, Caleb, Maya, Andrew, Catriona and Hayley, daughter-in-law, Tina, son-in-law, Brent, David's partner, Carol, sisters Mary Jo and Susan, dog Hanna and cat Navajo. Tommy was predeceased by his infant daughter, Catherine Rebecca, parents, Mary and Tom REID and infant brother, Anthony Patrick. Tom retired from Petro-Canada as General Manager of Supply, Optimization and Trading in 2002. Private family burial will take place at Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens, Nanaimo, British Columbia. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cancer Foundation, North Island Wildlife Recovery Association (250-248-8534) or charity of your choice. Sands ~ Nanaimo.

Hundreds mourn 2007's first homicide victim

In the cold spitting rain, hundreds of mourners gathered at a Scarborough church to pay their respects to Jean SPRINGER, Toronto's first homicide victim of 2007.
Row upon row was packed with teary-eyed mourners at Morningstar Christian Fellowship, who prayed and remembered the 60-year-old as a kind and loving mother of two.
"She was selfless," said her friend, Judy SUTHERLAND, as she stood in the cold after the service. "We will miss her but we will celebrate her life."
SPRINGER was shot to death shortly after she opened her door on New Year's Day.
Altaf IBRAHIM, 26, was arrested in connection with the shooting. He is believed to have been a friend of one of SPRINGER's sons.
At the church yesterday, family members hugged each other as they waited in the cold and rain, watching the casket being loaded into the hearse.
Many wiped away tears as they left the service where two photo collages were on display, filled with pictures of SPRINGER through the years, from her childhood days -- to dancing with her husband, Arden-Ray.
A friend, Judy INGRID, said SPRINGER lived her life in a way that inspired others to want to "model our life after her."
With her warmth, faith and her smile, Ingrid said SPRINGER drew many to her.
"From this turnout, you can see."
SPRINGER was born February 9, 1948 to Alva and Gwendolyn REID in the Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. As a young girl, she shone academically.
Eventually, her academic aptitude led her to win a scholarship to Bishop Anstey High School.
In the years following, she went to Trinidad's Mausica Teachers' College where she graduated with a teacher's diploma.
After meeting and marrying her husband, she moved to Canada where she became a bookkeeper and accountant after teaching for a few years.
In Canada, she raised her two sons, Anton and Anwelle.
SPRINGER was also well known in her community as a woman with a strong Christian faith. She often led prayers and took part in the women's ministry at her local church.
"She was a very inspiring lady," said Sandra MILLER, another friend who had come to pay her respects.
A viewing for Friends and family was also held yesterday at Ogden Funeral Home.
