PERRON, Jacqueline Emilienne
Passed away peacefully at home, 590 Huron Street, Toronto on Friday, October 26, 2007 with her husband by her side. Beloved wife of Paul PERRON, Professor of French and former Principal of University College, University of Toronto, she is survived by her dear sister Hélène LACHANT and brother-in-law Michel, her brother Jean-Jacques MAURIN and his spouse Michèle, numerous nieces and nephews in France and her dog, devoted walking companion and fellow traveller, Loulou. Jacqueline was born in Aiguillon, lot et Garonne France. A graduate of the École de la haute couture de Paris, she began her career with Jacques Esterel and Oleg Cassini in Paris, France. Jacqueline met Paul in Bordeaux in 1962, they lost sight of each other, Jacqueline going to Paris to study high fashion and Paul staying in Bordeaux to finish a PhD in French literature. They were separated for four years and met again by chance in the 5th arrondissement in Paris in May 1966 going to see a classical film. They saw each other again and thus continued a wonderful and loving 41 year partnership. As they would both say later on "Le hasard fait bien les choses" or chance has a way of doing things. She rejoined Paul in Canada in April 1967 where she quickly became a leader in the growing Canadian fashion industry. In Toronto she worked as a designer for Holiday Knitwear, National Knitwear and Dylex, where she was co-responsible for the Daniel Hechter line. For sixteen months Jacqueline fought a courageous battle with lung cancer with the same grace and courage that marked her life. Jacqueline will be remembered for her kindness and generosity, her keen intelligence and sense of style, her warmth and compassion and for the way she welcomed everyone to her home - whether that home was at 590 Huron Street or University College where for eight years she and her husband hosted numerous elegant evenings. She was greatly loved by all students, staff, faculty and alumni of the College and will be deeply missed by all those whose lives she touched. Following her wishes there will be no public or private ceremonies and those wishing to commemorate Jacqueline can make a donation in her name to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 University Avenue, Toronto M5G 2M9 whose caring and gifted staff gave her such personal and loving care.

LACKIE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-06-27 published
LACKIE, Kathleen E.
Kathy died peacefully, and for us very sadly, in hospital in Toronto on Saturday, June 23, 2007 after a brief battle with cancer. She is survived by her beloved daughters Brynn and Lauren, mother Meg, partner Uno HOFFMANN, pugs Hugo and Pee Wee, her cats Baby, Precious Angel, Timmy, and Lola, her mom's dog Max, and many close Friends from several generations. Kathy touched the hearts and minds of many people. She had impact. She demanded candor, integrity, principle, intellectual curiosity, in sight, inspiration and humour. She got to the inside of you and she took risks. She loved to laugh, hard. She never stopped exploring 'running the streets' she would say. She always asked the question nobody else would. Her keen intellect and curiosity created adventures for her and for those she chose to take on the ride. She was a truth seeker, especially when the truth was on the edge. She had a keen interest in the issues and challenges of the human condition which informed her ability to befriend people from all generations. Kathy was also an aesthete which shone in her professional work and her private life, be it the beauty of her home, her taste in art or her captivating personal style (even if there was too much black in her closet). It was a privilege to experience life with Kathy and her girls; she was an inspiration to them, and they to her. The loss of Kathy will leave a permanent gap in each who knew her well. As were her wishes, there will be neither a funeral nor a memorial, just some gatherings along the way. She will be cremated and her remains placed in the Lackie family plot at Mount Pleasant Cemetery and in a garden dear to her heart. In lieu of flowers, donations would be welcome to either of the following: Opportunity International Canada (www.opportunityinternational.ca) or Toronto Botanical Garden (www.torontobotanicalgarden.ca) Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com
