TOUGH, Douglas Ernest, B.A.Sc.
With great sadness the family announces the passing of Douglas Ernest TOUGH on Sunday December 30, 2007 at the Ian Anderson House, Oakville, Ontario in his 89th year.
Beloved husband of Betty (née PERDUE) for 62 years, loving father of Jeanine, Douglas, and Graham, and their respective partners, Don THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Domenica and Rosemary; grandfather of Cathy MONTEITH (Mark) and James McKAY (Cindy); Kristi, Jenny, Douglas and John TOUGH, Ginny HOMEWOOD (Josh), Lindsay (Alex FRIEL), Lesley, and Graham TOUGH; and extended family Kaelen (Paul STEPHENS,) Christopher, Rob (Anna ESCHER) and Michelle THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON: great-grandfather of Adam and Ellie MONTEITH and Liam McKAY, brother of Barbara JONES of St. Catharines and Uncle to Susan McGRAIL- HAGGAR. Brother-in-law to Dorothy MARTYN of Mississauga and Uncle to Jennifer and John.
Born in Montréal to Ernest and Lucy Davis TOUGH he moved to Toronto where he was captain of his football team at Vaughan Road Collegiate and also played for the University of Toronto where he graduated in Metallurgical Engineering in 4T4.
He held executive positions with Westinghouse Canada in Defense Apparatus, the Motor Division, and laterally the Atomic Power Division in Port Hope. He served as joint chair of the American and Canadian Nuclear Power Associations in 1968.
A fine athlete he enjoyed football, hiking, scuba-diving, skiing and golf at the Oakville Golf Club, badminton and tennis at the Oakville Club; Doug was also an avid swimmer at his beloved Balsam Lake and in their condo pool in Florida. Dad first took up tennis in his mid-forties at Long Point and enjoyed the sport so much he formed a committee and funded the construction of a new second court in the centre lands. His enthusiasm for the sport and initiative led to the existence of two excellent courts enjoyed by the cottagers extensively. The Association in his honour have named the annual Cup and Saucer mixed doubles championship the "Tough Trophy".
Upon his retirement he and Betty enjoyed many years of travel, to Europe, China, Russia, Indonesia and many cruises in the Caribbean, barge trips along the canals of France were a highlight.
His special delights included reading in his solarium on Spruce Street, his residence for sixty years, listening to classical music in the sunroom of his cottage on Long Point, Balsam Lake and discussing philosophy with his many grandchildren during family dinners and parties.
Border Collies, Raleigh, Collette, and Bailey were a big part of his life as was his interest in painting where many of his family have treasured possessions of his talent. Many of Doug's Friends have tokens of his artistic ability, sketches and cards etched on birch bark were his forté. For over 20 years Dad encouraged and organized family parties at Long Point, memorable events that will always be remembered and cherished by all of us. His family was his greatest dedication and our love and respect will be his finest achievement.
Our special thanks to Doctor Ken Collett, for his care and support to Doug and the family, he is truly a credit to his profession. We also want to thank the many compassionate caregivers at the Ian Anderson house for their dedication and commitment in making Doug comfortable and safe during his stay at their Hospice.

PRIDDLE, Stanley Alexander
Stanley Alexander PRIDDLE of Markdale passed away suddenly in the Grey-Bruce Regional Health Centre in Owen Sound on Sunday evening, September 2, 2007.
He was born on July 10, 1930 in Osprey Township, the only son of Roy PRIDDLE and Jessie (BADGEROW) PRIDDLE. He and his three sisters attended S.S.#2 McIntyre in Osprey Township where his parents farmed. In 1944 Stan's father purchased a home near Dundalk where the family resided for many years.
Stan's working career started after high school when he found employment with Aitchison's Bakery in Dundalk. He worked there for 12 years and learned the baking trade. In 1957 he took over the bakery in Markdale which had been started by Allen SMITH of Dundalk. Two years later he purchased a building across the street and moved the business there.
On October 24, 1959 he married Vivian DAWSON of Dundalk and together they owned and operated Priddle's Bakery. And that bakery was a great success. People still rave about it today. Just last year someone told his daughter Brenda that she used to go to his bakery and had to hide the pastries she bought in different areas of her house so people wouldn't eat them before meal time. Many of the pleasant memories shared by those who attended visitations and the funeral revolved around the bakery.
After Stan sold the bakery in 1972, he worked as a baker for Vern's Donuts in Owen Sound His employer, Vern BARBER, remembered Stan as someone who always had a smile on his face, and his co-worker, Paul DICKSON/DIXON said that Stan taught him how to be a good baker. Stan worked for Vern for 17 years before ill health forced him to retire.
Stan's favourite pastime was to drive a car. He enjoyed travelling to many places, both locally and far away. He has been in every Canadian province and in many parts of the United States, to the Bahamas and to Jamaica. "If you're not going, you're not living!" was his motto.
In retirement years he and Vivian purchased antique cars and attended local parades and car shows. If a stranger wanted a ride in one of his cars, he gave him one. They had many adventures with these cars and met many new people along the way.
Stan had a good sense of humour. He was generous, quiet kind and considerate. He was held in good esteem by all who knew him.
Stan is survived by his daughters, Brenda CATCHER of Owen Sound and Evelyn (Reg) CREGO of Burlington and by his son David (Camilla) PRIDDLE of Manotick, near Ottawa. He also has four grandchildren, Ryan and Allison DEMERCHANT and Cole and Brock PRIDDLE. He is fondly remembered by his friend Joyce ROWE of Hanover who has arranged to have a tree planted in his honour near Griersville. He is also survived by his sisters Rosetta MUIR of Dundalk, Margaret BROWN of Shelburne and Verna MARKOVICH of Shelburne. His mother-in-law Lillian DAWSON of Shelburne and his brother-in-law Tom DAWSON of Dundalk also survive. He was predeceased by his parents Roy and Jessie PRIDDLE, and by his brothers-in-law Bill MUIR, Donald BROWN and Stephen MARKOVICH.
A funeral was held on Friday, September 7 at the Donald and May Funeral Home in Markdale. His daughter Brenda wrote the eulogy and his son David delivered the eulogy along with his own thoughts. His other daughter, Evelyn, prepared a collage of pictures of Stan at various stages in his life. Rev. Mark WAUGH officiated at the service and David FRIES played the organ. A floral arrangement was made for Stan by Bernice TUPLIN of Feversham.
Friends and relatives were present from Markdale, Dundalk, Owen Sound, Chesley, Cambridge, Burlington and Manotick.

DEGRACE, Margaret French (née MacLAUCHLAN)
Wolfville
Passed away peacefully at her cottage at Sebim Beach, Villagedale, Nova Scotia, on July 5, 2007. Peggy was born July 29, 1924 in Kentville, Nova Scotia, the daughter of the late Roderick and Marian (FRINK) MacLAUCHLAN. She spent her early years with her family in Rothesay, New Brunswick, Wolfville and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. She served in the Royal Canadian Navy as a Wren (Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service) from 1944 to 1945, working in Halifax, and in 1945 married Robert F. DEGRACE of Seattle, Washington. They made their first home in Seattle and after several years there, and in Corvallis, Oregon, they moved back to Canada in 1952. Eventually they settled in Manor Park in Ottawa, where they lived for thirty years.
Peggy was not only a busy community volunteer (sometimes referred to as "Mrs. Altar Guild"), she was also a loving and devoted mother and grandmother, and a caring friend to many. She took up curling at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Curling Club in Ottawa and developed a love for this sport which stayed with her all her life. She was interested in everything: politics, sports, community events, a good game of cribbage, and, above all, the well- being of family and Friends. In 1984 Peggy and Bob moved to Wolfville, Nova Scotia where they renewed old Friendships and developed many new ones. In Wolfville, Peggy was a member of Saint_John's Anglican Church and worked faithfully for the church. She helped with Meals on Wheels, served on the local hospital auxiliary, and canvassed for many important charities.
Peggy loved her cottage at Sebim Beach, and nothing pleased her more than a sunny day, a warm tide, and lots of children and dogs.
She is survived by her sons John (Judy SIMMS,) Prince George, British Columbia, and Bill, Bermuda; daughters Barbara THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Jim), Kingston, Ontario, Mary KEIRSTEAD (Rod), Caledonia, Nova Scotia, and Anne (Phillip JACKSON,) Nelson, British Columbia her sister, Joan TAPLEY, Cockeysville, Maryland; ten grandchildren several nieces and nephews.

FRISBY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-01-02 published
GRENON, J. Émile
By Aline GRENON, Page A14
Father, cribbage player. Born June 17, 1909, in Casselman, Ontario Died August 22 in Montreal, probably of heart failure, aged 97.
The son of an enterprising farmer turned carpenter, Émile was born the second of seven children. Graduating with a commerce degree from Bourget College, in Rigaud, Qué., in 1933, at the height of the Depression, most of Émile's first year out of school was spent looking for work. It was not until he heard of a Sudbury merchant in need of a bookkeeper that things began to look up. Telephoning from the Casselman general store, he was asked "How soon can you get here?" He responded "Within 24 hours."
After a year bunking out in the back-room of the place where he worked, Émile acquired a surrogate family when he moved into the boarding house operated by Mme. Clémentine LEFEBVRE- PAQUETTE, a remarkable woman for whom Émile developed a high regard. However, it was her entrepreneurial son Roméo who would change Émile's life. The two struck up a Friendship and one day, Roméo let drop that a well run grocery business in the then-booming mining town of Larder Lake stood a good chance of success. Émile agreed that it probably would and promptly forgot about it until Roméo informed him that he had purchased the lot that would hold their store. Although taken aback, Émile felt obliged to honour his unintentional promise and, with a small sum of borrowed money, he left Sudbury to join Roméo in business. Thus was born Paquette and Grenon (or P and G as it soon became known): the result of one man's vision and another's commitment to Friendship.
The initial years were difficult. To make ends meet, the partners delivered firewood house-to-house with a horse and wagon. At the best of times, the future appeared uncertain, and at the worse it was downright bleak, particularly when a bank manager, convinced that French-Canadians lacked business acumen, cut off their line of credit without warning. Luckily, a local bootlegger named "Black Nellie" lent them sufficient money to permit the business to survive and thrive. P and G eventually grew to eight stores.
With the advent of the Second World War, Émile enlisted in the Canadian army. Although he had no medical training, he was posted to the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. He often joked that this was because his brother was a doctor and one of his sisters a nurse! His was, in the parlance of the times, a "good" war. Stationed mainly at Camp Borden, Émile continued to look after P and G's accounting needs. On three occasions, he received orders to ship out to Europe, only to have them rescinded. It was during one such occasion, while awaiting transportation in Québec City that he met the charming and attractive Berthe SAMPSON/SAMSON, who was working in a munitions factory. They wed in 1946. That she married him in spite of a mix-up as to his background (the result of a letter from a confused Casselman priest who mistook him for an unsavoury cousin with a similar name) proves the extent of her faith in him. Together they would have three children. Sadly, Berthe died in early 1967, after a struggle with breast cancer.
Émile's loneliness over the next 20 years was mitigated somewhat by frequent travel, his love of golf, curling and cards, a close circle of Friends and the presence of his children. However, the next milestone in his life occurred when he met the remarkable Phyllis FRISBY, whom he married in 1986. Fun-loving and strong-willed, she reintroduced a degree of warmth and bustle into his life. He found it difficult to recover from Phil's death in 2002.
Émile's last years were spent in Montréal. Possibly his greatest joy during this period came from the countless games of cribbage he played with his children and his grand_son, Daniel.

FRISINA, Alfonso Esamuele
Husband, father, grandfather, builder, visionary. Born January 11, 1926, in Delianuova, Calabria, Italy. Died in Hamilton, Ontario, March 29, unexpectedly while in hospital being treated for gout, aged 81.
By Filomena FRISINA, Page L6
'The harder you work the luckier you get."
That was one of Dad's favourite mottos. He pretty well always achieved what he set out to do, be it in his family life, his career or his community.
Al FRISINA was born in a mountain town in southern Italy. He was one of 10 children and he worked with his brothers building furniture to help support the family, particularly after his father's death. That event changed his hopes of becoming a lawyer.
Dad's decision to embark on the ship Saturnia for Canada was made for love - to be with his betrothed, Antonia. They married and had seven children.
His first year in Canada was spent working on a farm in Millgrove, Ontario He later started his career as a carpenter with a local contractor, working long hours by day and on small house renovation projects nights and weekends.
But he was ambitious and set his sights on bigger things. In 1954, he established Frisina Construction Co. Ltd., which later became the builder of numerous schools, churches, apartment and commercial buildings.
Dad was outspoken and, in some ways, fearless. He connected with politicians and religious and community leaders, challenging them all to upset the status quo.
He worked hard, and in his younger years he played hard, too. He scuba dived (even though he didn't know how to swim at the time), tried to teach Mom to drive his Austin Healey Sprite (not the most practical from her perspective) and few could believe it when he shipped his 1960 white Lincoln to Delianuova, Italy to enjoy it with his hometown Friends.
He encountered numerous setbacks such as discrimination, naysayers, a brain aneurysm at 48 and two serious car accidents. He faced these challenges head-on with a healthy dose of optimism and humour.
Behind all the drive, hard work and charisma was a man who was immensely proud and deeply devoted to his family.
His eyes lit up whenever one of his 10 grandchildren entered the room. Whenever we asked him what he wanted as a gift, he would simply reply: "I want you to be good."
The Lake Erie cottage he built became the meeting place for family gatherings.
He was pivotal in these events, his tenor voice leading everyone in Neapolitan song, dancing the tarantella with vigour and, most often, winning the bocce tournament. My cousin recently remarked: "He was the force that brought all of us together."
Filomena FRISINA is Al's daughter.
