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.

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.
