GREEN, Evelyn, R.N.
October 24th, 2007, Orillia. 'Nana' has left us in her 90th year after what can only be described as an incredible life by a spirited character. Evelyn was born in Calgary and grew up in Alberta which was also the birthplace of her sister Pat HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON, now of Mayne Island. In 1941 Evelyn went on to graduate in Nursing from Kingston General Hospital. It was here where she met her late husband, Doctor Thomas GREEN, and worked alongside him in his medical practice in Orillia, Ontario while they raised their two daughters, Marsha REGENSBURG (Bruce) of Victoria, British Columbia, and Marilyn GREEN of Orillia. Evelyn worked for many years as an administrator at the Ontario Hospital and her generosity helped many patients go on to live productive lives in the community. In her mid life she began a new career as a special education and substitute teacher and taught at Twin Lakes and Park Street High Schools where her contagious wit made her extremely popular with the students. Evelyn was adored by her grandchildren Steven LAUER and Alison DOMINELLI (Joe); Paul, Nicole, and Mark REGENSBURG, and her great-grandchildren Nicholas and Lucas DOMINELLI. She was affectionately known as 'Nutty Nana' to them and you would routinely hear people, young and old, approaching Evelyn on the streets with a hearty 'Hi Nana!' Evelyn was very proud of her heritage home at 77 Peter Street N where she lived for 60 years and kept the door open to everyone whether it be family, young triathletes visiting for a competition, or her grandchildren's college buddies. The minute you entered her house you felt welcome and she would ask 'Beer or Bloody Mary?' Her sense of humour, love of animals, and zest for playing piano will always be fondly remembered. Thanks to the caring staff at Trillium Manor and to her daughter Marilyn for being by her side in the final days of her life - Nana's funny faces and sense of humour was with her until the end - we would expect no less from her. As she wished, there will be no service. The family would appreciate you sharing memories at regen@shaw.ca

GALBRAITH, Clarretta " Tom"
Clarretta 101, died customary Harmony on Friday, 'Tom' GALBRAITH, quietly, and with her grace and dignity, at Homes in Red Deer November 23. The youngest of three sisters, Clarretta was born in Lion's Head, Ontario, on May 2, 1906, and raised in Regina and Edmonton. She graduated from the Royal Alexandra Hospital as a Registered Nurse in 1929, working first as a public health nurse with the Travelling Clinic in Northern Alberta and later at the Olds Agricultural College. She moved to the Red Deer Health Unit in 1933 before winning a scholarship to the University of Toronto where she received a Diploma in Public Health in 1935. Returning to the Red Deer Health Unit, she married Philip GALBRAITH, the Publisher of the Red Deer Advocate, in 1936 and lived the rest of her wonderfully full and happy life in Red Deer. She and Philip were two peas in a pod, blessed with a wide circle of Friends in Canada and overseas. They entertained with panache and travelled widely to Europe, the U.S., Asia and the Middle East. On her travels she wrote a column for the Advocate, as did her husband, who was amused that she got more fan mail than he did. She continued to travel after his death in 1970. Known for her charm, taste and warmth, she was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, a gracious hostess and a keen observer with a great sense of humour. For six decades she welcomed a constant stream of visitors and family to her home. She is survived by her daughter Mary LAUGHREN (Grant) of Calgary and son Michael GALBRAITH (María INÉS) of Singapore; and grandchildren Jessica LAUGHREN (François TREMBLAY) of Sugarland, Texas, Olivia LAUGHREN of Edmonton, Veronica GALBRAITH of Hong Kong, and Andrew GALBRAITH of Shanghai. A private funeral service will be held on Wednesday, November 28, at the Eventide Funeral Chapel in Red Deer. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice. Condolences may be forwarded to the family at www.eventidefuneralchapels.com Service and Interment Providers: Eventide Funeral Chapels 4820 - 45th Street, Red Deer. Phone 347-2222.

LAURSEN o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-10-31 published
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
