LARSEN, Doctor Donn
Dr. Donn LARSEN was born in Copenhagen, on December 4, 1927, and died of cancer on May 15, 2007, in Vancouver. Donn was an Eagle Scout who prided himself on thinking outside the box long before that term was coined. Donn was passionate about business and negotiations, beginning as a black marketeer and business entrepreneur when just a teenager in occupied Denmark. He was an Industrial Designer and, after immigrating to Canada, operated Donn Larsen Office Interiors Ltd. It was an innovative and successful firm specializing in industrial and furniture design, office space planning and interior construction. Donn was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, London, England, and was appointed as an Honorary Member of the Registered Interior Designer Institute of Alberta in 1983. After retiring from his business, Donn continued consulting in the design field, became a mentor to many aspiring business people, and volunteered his unique and spirited efforts to a number of organizations. Donn was the Danish Consul for Edmonton from 1977-1998, receiving the Order of the Dannebro from Queen Margrethe II of Denmark for his long and dedicated service. Donn was first a member, and then the Chairperson, of the Governing Council of Athabasca University, from 1981-1992. After extensive travel and consultations with other distance learning institutions, Donn received an honorary doctorate in Business Administration from Ramkhamhaeng University in Thailand. He was the first non-Thai to be so honored. Governor-General Adrienne Clarkson honored Donn's commitment and service by awarding him a Grant of Arms in 1999. Donn also received much recognition for his contributions to international humanitarian projects and other public service. A lifelong learner, Donn was always eager to expand and share his knowledge, and promoted innovation in education. Donn was an accomplished pianist, who passionately believed that music was a necessary part of life. Donn was eccentric, brilliant, and didn't suffer fools gladly. Donn and his wife Ella loved entertaining, and hosted many wonderful parties in their Old Glenora home in Edmonton. Donn and Ella also kept an apartment in the West End of Vancouver since 1970, and retired there in 2001. Donn and Ella were married for over 53 years. She was his partner in everything and his number one supporter. Sadly, Ella's illness with Alzheimer's' Disease separated them prematurely. Predeceased by his parents and nephew, Per CHRISTENSEN Jr., Donn is survived by Ella, now a resident of Yaletown House in Vancouver, and many nieces and nephews, Friends and colleagues. He will particularly be missed by niece Dorte PITTAWAY, great-niece Margot PITTAWAY, nephew Paul CHRISTENSEN (Kim ROTHERY,) and companion Marion ROLSTON. No service by request, as Donn would much rather have a party than a funeral. Flowers gratefully declined, but donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Donn loved telling stories, so please share a story and offer a final Skol!

LUGSDIN, Lilie Anine "Chris" (née CHRISTENSEN)
With much regret the family announces the passing of Lilie on October 29, 2007 at Toronto Grace Hospital in her 91st year. Lilie was born on September 28, 1917 in Edmonton, Alberta. Her parents, Niels CHRISTENSEN and Marie Sophie (LAURSEN,) had emigrated from Denmark in 1911. The youngest of the large family, she is predeceased by her sister Sophie and her seven brothers; Christian, Ernst, Werner, Carl, Ewald, Herbert, and Heino CHRISTENSEN. Through the years she was a wonderful aunt and great- aunt and will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews and their children.
Lilie graduated as a registered nurse from the Royal Alexandra Hospital, Edmonton in 1941. She practiced her chosen profession with great dedication working initially in western Canada in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory and then Edmonton and Lamont, Alberta. During this period she was also active teaching several courses in the student nursing program. Moving east to Toronto in 1947 she became more focused on medical social work. She contributed significantly to the development of social service departments at Wellesley, Hillcrest, and North York General hospitals. After an eventful and rewarding career in nursing she retired from North York in 1982.
As an educational and leisure pursuit in life Lilie was an avid traveler. Over the years, often with her sister Sophie and other groups of Friends, she visited many fascinating and out-of-the-ordinary locales around the globe. Photos, maps, and lively descriptive narratives were always carefully edited in keepsake albums for captivated Friends and relatives at home.
She lived for the past 22 years at Christie Gardens Seniors Apartments near Christie and Dupont streets in Toronto and thoroughly enjoyed the many close Friendships she made there. In an exhilarating turn of events, she met and then married another resident, W. Ross LUGSDIN in September 1986. The two were a delightful couple and took great pleasure and an active leadership role in the club and social activities at Christie Gardens. However, their particular joy over the succeeding years was to spend the summer months at their charming cottage on Little Hawk Lake in the scenic Haliburton, Ontario area. She is predeceased by Ross who passed away in September 2006 at age 101. Lilie received much support and care from her step-sons Gordon and James LUGSDIN and their families and will be lovingly remembered by them.
In accordance with Lilie's wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be no funeral home visitation or service. A private family committal service will take place at a later date in Edmonton, Alberta.
If desired, a memorial donation to the Toronto Grace Hospital Palliative Care Unit, or the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care at Mount Sinai Hospital Toronto, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated. Condolences may be forwarded through Morley Bedford Funeral Services: www.morleybedford.ca

TEGLAS, Doctor Aloysius Louis
Unexpectedly, on Wednesday, May 30, 2007, surrounded by his loved ones at Saint_Joseph's Health Centre. Beloved husband of the late Joan TEGLAS and loving father of the late Catherine (Jason DUCHARME.) Also loving father of Joy (John CHROBOK), Ann (Michael HORTON), Michael (Dorota MIREK) and Trevor (Jack.) Cherished companion of Kristin GISLADOTTIR. Dear brother of living siblings John, Etus and Boris. Much adored grandpa of Michael and Sarah; Jade Jennifer, Thomas and William; Julia and Andrew. We are forever grateful to our dad for teaching us to have the courage to love, the importance of family and the constant reminder to keep life simple as Dad's poem so eloquently illustrates… I am becoming simplified. To become less is better. I yearn to be free of matter. I want liberation from my senses, from all bodily pretenses. From achievement, from pain and pleasure: from time, space and matter. Simple is better. We love you Dad! Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane subway, on Sunday, June 3 from 2-5 p.m. and on Monday, June 4 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A private service for the family will be held at a later date.
