WALLACE, Michael Sydney (March 21, 1927-June 12, 2007)
Our family is sad to announce that Mike passed away at home on Tuesday, June 12 with Josie by his side. Married to Josephine DILL 53 years ago, Mike led the family from Montreal to Toronto, out to Winnipeg and then finally back to Toronto. Together they raised a great family of four children: Alistair (Corinne SCHUSTER,) Sarah (Paul HAMBLETON,) Derek (MaryAnn LEE) and Christopher (Katie THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.) He will always be remembered as a wonderful grandfather by Teighan, Aiden, Ava, Aman, Catherine, Annie, Lizzy and Michael. So proud of his grandfather and great-grandfather's founding role at Bishop's College School, Mike attended Bishop's College School and later achieved his C.A. designation. He worked and made many Friends over the years at MacDonald Currie, Urwick Currie, P.S. Ross, Bay Bronze Inc., Wilson Office Specialty, Harrison and Crossfield, and finally, AC Technical, where he happily worked into his seventies. Being Mike meant: countless visits to the hockey rink, trips to the Winnipeg Winter Club, Chairman of the Board at Saint_John's Ravenscourt, always wishing for a sailboat at his birthday, helping with the L.P.A.A., and getting out on the course for a round of golf. A trip last summer to Tadoussac completed an important circle for Mike, returning to a place so special to him. Mike's love for life, his never ending support, love and encouragement, and his great sense of humour will be with us always. Husband, father, grandfather&hellip he will be so missed by all of us. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, June 14 and 1-3 and 7-9 p.m. Friday, June 15. Service at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 16 in Saint John's York Mills, 19 Don Ridge Drive, followed by a private family interment. Mike would have been so pleased if you would consider a donation to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 Unviersity Avenue, Toronto M5G 2M9 or a charity important to you.

WHITE/WHYTE, "Jane Jordan" (Jane BELFRY) (née APPLETON)
Peacefully on August 28th at St. Patrick's Home of Ottawa, shortly after her 81st birthday and a spirited battle with cancer. Jane is survived by her beloved husband of 59 years, G. Russell WHITE/WHYTE of Garry J. Armstrong Home of Ottawa, eldest son John R. WHITE/WHYTE of Ottawa, eldest daughter Holly (Beverley) SCHUT and her husband, Ray, of Toronto, and twins Robert G. WHITE/WHYTE and Barbara A. WHITE/WHYTE of Ottawa. Cherished Grandmother of Shannon and Sarah SCHUT, Jane is also survived by her sister Barbara REID of Federal Way (U.S.A.,) and pre-deceased by her siblings Tim APPLETON and Kay CLARKE of Toronto. "Jane Jordan," as she is known in the literary-arts community, grew up in the Lawrence Park area of Toronto and graduated from Havergal College in 1946. Her father, Franklin Fletcher APPLETON of Wm. Collins and Sons, published the works of many famous Canadian authors including "Two Solitudes" by Hugh MacLennan. Jane Jordan's skill and dedication at promoting Canadian writers, poets, artists and musicians in Toronto (circa 1960s) - and Ottawa beginning in 1973 with her signature series "Folk and Poetry" - garnered the attention and support of the Canada Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and (circa 1990s) TREE with the annually awarded "Jane Jordan Award." Her published works and contributions were extensive - including several books of poetry culminating in A Signature of Leaves (2004, Penumbra Press). Her grace, keen intellect and deep compassion bestowed a legacy of inspiration and gratitude that is keenly felt with the appellation "Fairy Godmother." A Celebration of her life will be held Saturday September 15th at Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa, commencing with visitations at 1: 30 p.m. Services at 2:30 will be followed by a reception.

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.

On his return to Canada, he completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and established his practice in Hamilton. Larry was an accomplished surgeon, obstetrician and respected clinical professor with the Hamilton Health Sciences Centre at McMaster University, delivering thousands of newborns during his career, as well as performing as a skilled surgeon. He pursued his career with dedication, professionalism and caring, while at the same time maintaining a balanced life style through family, church and his new found love for golf.

He last sailed his boat with his family on June 10, 2007. Many thanks to Leslie GAUTHIER, Doctor S. KOZIAK, Dr. N. VALETTAS, and Doctor J.D. SCHWALM.

KIEDROWSKI, Zygmunt " Ziggy"
By Patrick KIEDROWSKI; John KIEDROWSKI; Karen SCHWINGHAMER, Page L8
Husband, father, brother, tile contractor, lover of the outdoors. Born January 8, 1925, in Torun, Pomorze, Poland. Died May 18 in Hamilton, Ontario, of complications related to diabetes, aged 82.
Zygmunt had a short childhood and an interrupted education. He began fighting in the Second World War in 1939 at the age of 14. He received several medals for valour.
In December, 1945, as he told his grand_son Patrick, he ran down the cobblestone streets past the bomb holes and the exploded buildings and corpses of those who didn't make it, and realized there was no life for him in Europe. He accepted an offer from the British army to move to Canada.
He took a five-day boat trip across the Atlantic and landed in Halifax, on Pier 21. In January 1946, he travelled for two weeks to a farm in Embro, Ontario, near Woodstock. He worked at the farm for two years, because it was mandatory. The people were kind and looked after Ziggy (as he was by then known), but the work was hard.
He attended night school in Woodstock, and learned to speak English and read. He never did learn how to write it.
After his work period on the farm, he moved to Toronto and got a job delivering papers, which he did for two years until he was forced to quit after being off sick for 14 days. He moved to Brantford, where he got a job installing tiles. Because he could speak English, he became second-in-command.
One night at the movie theatre, he noticed a beautiful young woman, Peppina Angelina MANFREDI, who was selling tickets. He wooed Peppina (whom everyone called Josie) by taking care of her invalid mother while she worked in her parents' fruit store.
Josie's mother liked Ziggy even though he wasn't Italian. Josie fell in love with his sweet nature and generous spirit. They married and had four boys: Joseph, John, Peter and Michael. They had a close marriage and shared an earthy sense of humour. The bungalow they built was their pride and joy for 45 years.
Ziggy loved the outdoors, and took his boys camping at every opportunity.
He started his own business, Ziggie's Tile, and according to Josie his customers adored him, not only for his fine craftsmanship but for his gentle and kind personality. He was proud of his business: "At the height of my career, I had eight guys working under me."
The last few years of Ziggy's life were tough, yet he maintained his optimism and sense of humour and always looked forward to the next opportunity to be outside. He was happiest walking in the woods, or feeding the birds and chipmunks populating his backyard.
Patrick KIEDROWSKI is Ziggy's grand_son, John KIEDROWSKI his son and Karen SCHWINGHAMER his daughter-in-law.
