Oscar Lee Thuthikattu joined big brother Owen, and parents Su and Rick on May 10, 2006. Family and Friends here, in India, Finland and abroad have warmly welcomed him into the fold. Oscar is named for Rick's paternal THUTHIKATTU family in Kerala, India, and in loving memory of Libardo (Lee) MELENDEZ and Oscar GOULD, who are surely smiling down on him. The wonderful Denise HOO was once again our unwavering guide, ensuring that Oscar was born into love, music, beauty and calm. We will always be grateful for the magical births we shared with her. Heartfelt thanks also go to Doctor BERNSTEIN, Doctor ENGLE and Deborah HAYNES of Mt. Sinai Hospital for their exceptional care. Oscar was baptized on February 11, 2007 by Rev. Jenny ANDISON (Saint Paul's Anglican, Toronto) and is a godson to Jenni LAWLESS (Kingston) and Wayne WOLANSKI (Forest.) And to our wonderful Oscar: your beautiful soul brings light to our hearts each and every day. Thank you for coming into our lives.

HOOKER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-10-02 published
In a famous role, the spy didn't love her
James Bond's flirtatious foil grew up in Ontario; she returned and penned tabloid columns, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
Gutsy, impetuous and adventurous, Lois MAXWELL ran away from home as a teenager to become an actress and became famous as Miss Moneypenny, M's flirtatious secretary in the James Bond films. Although she appeared in 14 Bond films, she had a tough life, supporting two young children after her husband died prematurely of heart disease. Writing a weekly newspaper column in Toronto and starting a company to build crowd-control barriers were just two of her schemes.
Lois Ruth HOOKER was born on February 14, 1927, in Kitchener, Ontario For the rest of her life, she loved to throw people off balance with her name, introducing herself by saying, "I'm a hooker." Her father was a school teacher and her mother a nurse she once described her family as religious and temperate while she was scrawny, freckled and saucy and sulky. When she was a child, the Hookers moved to Toronto. Lois attended John Wanless Public School and then Lawrence Park Collegiate.
Lively, rebellious and game for anything, she was much more interested in performing on stage than sitting in a classroom solving algebra equations. She played parts in radio dramas under the name Robin WELLS, at least partly so that her parents wouldn't find out. After winning a part in Maurice Maeterlinck's play The Blue Bird at Hart House, she was determined to become an actress. However, an oft-told story has her running away from home in 1942 to join the Canadian army. She would have been 15.
"Teenagers in those days were terrified that the war would end before they could get into it," explained journalist Peter WORTHINGTON, a friend and former newspaper colleague. There's another version of the story, which Ms. MAXWELL told when she began writing a weekly column in The Toronto Sun in 1979: She skipped school in 1943 to audition for the army's entertainment corps, earned a place and then went to England with the show, where she sang and danced and (according to some reports) often appeared on a bill with comedians Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster.
Seven months later, army officials discovered she was underage and prepared to send her home. Undeterred, she knocked on the doors of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, where she persuaded officials to name her "the first winner of the Lady Louis Mountbatten Scholarship," according to an account she wrote in The Sun. At Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, her favourite classmate was Roger Moore - she once played his uncle, complete with red beard, in a performance of Shakespeare's Henry V. After leaving Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, she found small parts in plays and films and was "discovered" by Canadian-born film mogul Jack Warner, who put her under contract and sent her to Hollywood. Her first major role was as a schoolteacher in That Hagen Girl (1947), starring Ronald Reagan and Shirley Temple. She was so impressive that she won a Golden Globe as "best newcomer." Two years later, Life magazine included her and Marilyn Monroe in a photo spread of eight starlets.
She never made the Hollywood big time and after appearing in two forgotten Warner Brothers films, The Big Punch and The Decision of Christopher Blake, she went to Italy with friend Geraldine Brooks. Ms. MAXWELL lived in Rome for five years, making British and Italian films.
During this time, she met British television executive Peter Churchill MARRIOTT - "a handsome sardonic stranger," as she later described him. They married in 1957 and moved to London, where they had two children: daughter Melinda in 1958 and son Christian in 1959.
In 1962, Mr. MARRIOTT collapsed with a serious heart condition and Ms. MAXWELL was forced to seek film work to support the family. That year, she was given a small part as a nurse in Stanley Kubrick's Lolita and the role of Ms. Moneypenny in Doctor No, the first Bond film. Apparently, director Terrence Young, who had once turned her down for a role because she looked like she "smelled of soap," offered her the part of either Moneypenny or Bond's girlfriend, Sylvia Trench. Ms. MAXWELL was squeamish about playing sex scenes, so she chose the part of the chaste secretary to the head of MI6. She supplied her own clothes and was guaranteed two days' work at what was then the daily rate of £100. At the wrap party at the end of filming, she met Ian Fleming, the creator of the James Bond books. "I visualized Moneypenny as a tall, elegant woman with the most kissable lips in the world," Ms. MAXWELL remembered him saying. "You, my dear, are perfect."
As Moneypenny, she created a character who was cheeky and flirtatious but also knowing and impervious to the seductive prowess of a series of Bonds, including Sean Connery and her old Royal Academy of Dramatic Art pal Roger Moore. Her last Bond film was A View to a Kill in 1985. She asked producer Cubby Broccoli if he would kill off her character, but he recast it instead. Miss Moneypenny was subsequently played by Caroline Bliss and Samantha Bond.
Ms. MAXWELL, who always had ambitions beyond her secretarial character, set her sights on M, but that part was out of bounds as an equal opportunity role until Judy Dench laid claim to the position.
"She was always fun and she was wonderful to be with and was always perfect casting," Mr. Moore told the British Broadcasting Corp.'s Radio 5 Live on the weekend. "… It was a great pity that after I moved out of Bond, they didn't take her on to continue in the Timothy Dalton films. I think it was a great disappointment to her that she had not been promoted to play M. She would have been a wonderful M."
The good part about playing Miss Moneypenny was that she was so identified with the role that she became a recognizable part of popular culture. The bad part, of course, was that she was so typecast as the smouldering secretary that it became hard to win other major roles.
After Ms. MAXWELL's husband died in 1973, she returned to Canada to film a television series, Adventures in Rainbow Country. She bought a property in cottage country and a bungalow in Fort Erie, Ontario, settled down with her young children and established a company called Great Barrier Industries, which manufactured crowd-control stands. She eventually opened a British subsidiary and planned to market her barriers in Europe.
In the late 1970s, she proposed writing a column for The Toronto Sun to editor Peter WORTHINGTON and publisher Donald Creighton. They took her for a boozy lunch at Winston's, according to Mr. WORTHINGTON, and long before the coffee was served, they had a deal. She wrote her chatty, gossipy, opinionated weekly column, called "Moneypenny," for almost a dozen years.
After Kim Campbell's Progressive Conservatives went down to an ignominious defeat in the 1993 federal election, Ms. MAXWELL confided that she had declined an invitation to run. "Kim Campbell's handlers threw her to the slavering wolves," she said. "She is a gutsy, bright strong woman who didn't deserve the treatment she received from her party."
As for Ms. MAXWELL, she had her own problems in the newsroom at The Sun, according to Mr. WORTHINGTON. " There was a certain resentment that she was a celebrity getting into the column business," he said. "She was also one of the better-read people and that was a problem, too."
Her final column appeared April 23, 1994. By then, her daughter, Melinda, the married mother of a small child, was living near the market town of Frome in Somerset, England. Ms. MAXWELL decided to join them, planning to live every day, "with gusto!"
Her last film was The Fourth Angel (2001) with Jeremy Irons. The same year, she underwent surgery for colorectal cancer and then moved to Perth, Australia, where her son, Christian, and his wife had settled.
Lois Ruth MAXWELL was born in Kitchener, Ontario, on February 14, 1927. She died of cancer in Fremantle Hospital in Perth, Australia, on September 29, 2007. She was 80. Ms. MAXWELL is survived by her daughter and son and extended family.

LOVENUIK, STEVE
Pa, a master builder of family, Friendships, and structures, passed away peacefully at home, on Wednesday, July 4, 2007. Steve's passion for living life fully and sharing that passion made him unforgettable to all that he met. He was a positive force in many lives, especially his family of 8 children, 17 grandchildren, and to Dorothy, his loving wife of 51 years. Steve is survived by Dorothy; children and grandchildren, Jeff (Cheryl), Anna, Calvin LOVENUIK of Calgary, Laurie (Perry,) Kyle, Kurtis, Michael NISHIYAMA of Edmonton, Donna (John,) Alyson, Veronica, Paula ROONEY of Calgary, Pat (Dale,) Kara, Ben, Mallory KNELLER of Durango, Colorado, Stephen LOVENUIK of Revelstoke, British Columbia, Mary (Gord,) Krysia, Ross, Reid FERGUSON of Calgary, Margaret (Joe) Sofia SCHLIESSLER of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Monica (Dave,) Declan, Brendan GAINER of Redmond, Washington; sisters, Mary (Joe) HOOVER, Elise (Chris) DEMUYNCK, Margaret GELINAS, and brother Al (Heather) LOVENUIK. Steve was born in Smoky Lake in 1934, the son of Anna and Nicholas LOVENUIK. He grew up in Coal Valley. Steve was respected as an owner of a successful construction business in Edmonton. Over many years he was responsible for the construction of several hundred buildings in the area. Steve was forever working to help those he loved. Throughout his life he was always aware of the needs of his growing family and made everyone happy. He gave us a great sense of family that we all possess now - that legacy lives on. He loved to see his family gathered around the dining room table for a feast prepared by Dorothy and to hold everyone captive until he recited his Italian, or Polish, or Latin version of Grace. Like Louis Armstrong sang, Steve lived in 'A Wonderful World'. We will miss him at track meets, recitals, athletic races, golf games, ski hills, volleyball games, dance competitions and soccer games. He was an avid spectator and Number One Fan of his children and his grandchildren's endeavors. We would like to thank Doctor Helen Hays for her kind and caring support and efforts to help make Pa comfortable in his final week. Prayers on Monday, July 9, 2007 at 7: 00 p.m., Hainstock's Funeral Home 9810-34th Ave, Edmonton.

GOETZ, Peter Henry (1917-2007)
Beloved dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, passed away on Tuesday, August 28, 2007 just shy of his 90th birthday. He was born on September 8, 1917, in Slavgorod, Russia, where he was raised on a collective farm by his parents, Henry and Justina. He immigrated to Canada in 1929 along with his parents and his brother Henry. His baby brother Siegfried was born during the ocean voyage to Quebec City. The family then settled in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Peter attended Kitchener Collegiate Institute where he met his future wife, Helena WARKENTIN. In his thirties, Peter pursued an accounting career with B.F. Goodrich. He was, however, an avid sportsman, becoming recognized as a 'scratch' golfer at the Westmount Golf and Country Club. His passion for the arts eventually eclipsed his interest in sports. By attending Saturday morning classes at Waterloo College, now Wilfred Laurier University and joining the Kitchener-Waterloo Society of Artists in 1946, Peter developed his artistic skills. He also added a daughter Jean Margot to the family in 1946 and a son, Peter Andrew in 1949. Peter was elected to the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour in 1960 and the Ontario Society of Artists in 1963. Exhibitions include the National Gallery, Ottawa; the Rotunda Gallery, London, England; La Scala Gallery, Florence, Italy the Galleria International, New York City and the Art Gallery of Ontario. During his seventy plus years as a respected Kitchener-Waterloo Artist he received numerous rewards and accolades and was a respected member of the community. His work is in the collection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the City of Waterloo, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, the London Regional Art Gallery, the National Club in Toronto, the Universities of Guelph, Waterloo and Wilfred Laurier and many, many private homes. Peter was predeceased by his parents, his brother Henry and his wife Helena. He is survived by his daughter Jean (David) HOOVER, his son Peter (Louella) GOETZ and his brother Siegfried (Corinne) GOETZ. He will be greatly missed by his long time friend and companion Dora Melville STEPHENS. He is also survived by his grandchildren Jennifer (Garry) MacLEAN, Oliver (Alpena) HOOVER and Travis HOOVER, as well as his great-grandchildren Megan and Lyssa MacLEAN and Alexander and Stephan HOOVER. There are many nieces and nephews. A viewing will be held at the Erb and Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo, on Friday from 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 78 John St. W., Waterloo, Saturday, September 1, 2007 11 a.m. Interment will follow at the Parkview Cemetery. If Friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made to Redeemer Lutheran Church, Canadian Cancer Society or the Lung Association, all of which he supported and these can be arranged through the funeral home, 519-745-8445 or www.erbgood.com.
