LISANTI, Joseph
In memory of Joseph LISANTI who passed away August 20, 1978.
We often sit and think of him when we are all alone
For memory is the only friend
That grief can call its own
Like ivy on the withered oak
when other things decay
Our love for him will still be green
And never fade away.
- Never forgotten, with love from Mom and Dad.

TANSLEY, Donald Dougans
Member Of The Order Of Canada
Born in Regina, Saskatchewan on May 19, 1925, died peacefully at home on July 19, 2007. Dear husband and best friend to Murielle LISE. Loving father to Jean, Doug and Jill; father-in-law to Bill, Anne and Michael; grandfather to Wes, Petra and Matthew and step-father to Pierre (Annette) and Colette. After the war, Don attended the University of Saskatchewan, where he earned degrees in Arts and Commerce. Over the next 35 years, he served as a senior public servant in Saskatchewan, New Brunswick and the Government of Canada. Highlights included his work as Chairman of the Commission which implemented Medicare in Saskatchewan, and his contribution, as Deputy Minister of Finance, to the revolutionary program of reform in New Brunswick. His federal appointments included Executive Vice-President of C.I.D.A., Administrator under the Anti-Inflation Act, and the first Deputy Minister of Fisheries and Oceans. From 1972-1975 he was on leave of absence to the International Red Cross, charged with producing a report of their future role in the world, an assignment which involved visits to some 45 countries. In 1999, Don was awarded the highest honours possible by both the Canadian and International Red Cross. In that same year, he became a Member of the Order of Canada. When Don found out about his imminent departure, he said 'Hey Friends, I'm leaving. But what a time I've had! It's not often that I've been one of the first to leave the party. I want to say thanks and to pay tribute to so many whom I have been blessed to know'. It was Don's hope that in lieu of a service, family and Friends would find comfort in their memories.

LISSON, Ross Adair (May 7, 1966-November 12, 2003)
It's hard to believe another year has passed since you've been gone
at times it feels like yesterday you were here, yet 4 years without you have seemed like an eternity. Many things have changed and yet every day is still filled with constant reminders of you. I doubt that will ever change. You will always and forever be in our hearts and minds. "It takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but an entire life to forget them." I love and miss you bud. Tammi

LIST o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-12-20 published
He was Canada's 'dean of labour journalists'
By James RUSK, Page S8
In an era when reporters joined newspapers and often stayed on a beat for life, Wilf LIST of The Globe and Mail set the standard for labour reporters.
Through his coverage of turbulent strikes in the 1950s and 1960s, of internal problems in the labour movement and of the political influence of labour at a time when it was much more powerful force in society than today, he also became an important figure himself.
That influence was the product of Mr. LIST's reputation for fairness and impartiality. "He understood the players and the issues," Canadian Auto Workers president Buzz Hargrove said yesterday.
In 1968, labour minister Bryce Mackasey cited Mr. LIST's influence when, the national railways reached a mediated agreement with their non-operating employees on a new contract - before the old one had expired, the first time that had happened since Confederation.
After the settlement, the minister told reporters that he had appointed the mediator after Mr. LIST wrote an article commenting that bargaining between the unions and the railways had become a ritual that made a mockery of collective bargaining.
That fit Mr. LIST's view of his role. After a half-century as a labour reporter, he told an industrial-relations conference that newspapers "are one of the most effective media for both union and management to get their case to the workers and the people who may influence the employees."
Ian CARMAN, a former editor of Report on Business, said Mr. LIST was an invaluable reporter, one who was so good in covering labour disputes that senior company executives sometimes found out the details of a labour settlement at their company from their morning paper. "He had the contacts, and wherever there was a labour dispute or some kind of strike going on, he was able to get inside with all the workers."
Like so many young people who came of age during the Depression, Mr. LIST was forced to start working at a young age. His father died when he was 14, and in 1934, Mr. LIST left Harbord Collegiate at 15 to work at the Spitzer and Mills advertising agency to support his mother.
In 1942, he joined The Globe and Mail, and in the late 1940s, took over the labour beat. He quickly established his credentials as a top reporter - in the National Newspaper Awards of 1950, he earned a citation of merit for news reporting. A year later, he won an honourable mention, and in 1952, he became one of the first Globe and Mail reporters to garner a National Newspaper Award: first prize for feature writing with a series on labour and sociological developments in Quebec, which was tied to the coverage of a textile strike.
At the awards ceremony, Globe managing editor W.T. MUNNS said Mr. LIST had the coldly analytical approach necessary to impartial reporting of labour issues.
Mr. LIST knew everyone in the Canadian and U.S. labour movements. In 1962, he travelled to Washington to interview Jimmy Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters from 1957 until the mid-1960s. The grinding taping session lasted three hours and produced a long and penetrating feature in The Globe Magazine, plus a radio program that Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio put together from Mr. LIST's reel-to-reel tapes.
His reputation for fairness stayed with him through his tenure on the labour beat. In the early 1970s, he was held in such high esteem that the Trudeau government offered him a seat on the Anti-Inflation Board. Mr. LIST turned Ottawa down, just as he turned aside job offers from other publications. He remained with The Globe until retiring in 1984.
After that, the United Steelworkers of America set up an annual award for newspapers and named it after Mr. LIST, "the dean of labour journalists in Canada."
In retirement, he continued to write freelance articles for The Globe and also found a new role in labour affairs as a member of the Public Review Board, an impartial agency set up the Canadian Auto Workers in 1985 to deal with member complaints against the union. Mr. LIST was active on the board for the remainder of his life. Earlier this week, he participated in a conference call regarding a board matter, said chairman Alan Borovoy.
Mr. Borovoy said he so valued Mr. LIST's experience, judgment and impartiality that he sought his opinion even on cases that the former reporter had not heard. "He commanded respect universally. It was largely because everybody knew he would be fair."
Wilf LIST was born in Toronto on October 6, 1919. He died yesterday at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre of heart problems. He was 88. He is survived by his wife, Ethel; children Marcy, Stephen, Wendy and Cary; grandchildren Samara, Sarah and Shayna; and a sister.

LISTER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-08-16 published
LISTER, Mary
Sister, friend, vintner. Born November 12, 1929, in Toronto. Died February 9 in Toronto of complications after a fall, aged By Joan WILLIAMS, Page L8
When my sister was born, the doctor predicted she would not last a year because she had cerebral palsy. Stubborn from birth, she proved them wrong.
Mary attended a school for disabled children. When she left she met a wonderful lady who taught her how to weave; it changed Mary's life. She became an exceptionally talented weaver and her fabrics won many prizes at the Canadian National Exhibition.
Mary attended a workshop, now known as Corbrook, where she worked for 56 years. Along with her weaving she did any task she was assigned.
She had excellent hearing, sight and understanding. Her left side was affected by her impairment, but her big problem was an inability to speak. She communicated with notes and gestures, and many people took this as a sign of a lack of intelligence. Yet she immensely enjoyed the theatre, the ballet and music concerts.
As a teenager she swam with the Gus Ryder Lakeshore Swim Club. She took dancing lessons at Arthur Murray Studios, never missing a chance to be out and about. Each summer she spent time at a camp for disabled children in Collingwood.
Her spirit of adventure took her far. Early on, Mary's parents started "tripping" with visits to Canada's east and west coasts, Bermuda and England, Europe and Asia. Mary even kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland. At 70, she went to India and climbed a mountain at Kathmandu in Nepal. While canoeing with Outward Bound, she spent a night alone in Algonquin Park. On a trip to Asia, Mary visited Kowloon, our mother's birthplace.
She saw the Tattoo in Scotland, cruised the Caribbean Sea and Greek Islands, and sailed Lake Ontario and the North Sea off the Netherlands. Aboard the KLM flight, Mary sat with a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer who was filming the trip. The group was in first class and the drinks were flowing freely. When questioned about her drinking Mary replied, "People with cerebral palsy can drink a lot because you can't tell the difference between their sobriety or their inebriation."
Mary had a friend with whom she produced homemade wine. No one turned down a bottle, for it was always very good.
She spent her entire life in the family home, living independently the past 30 years with some community help. She was a common sight in her east-end neighbourhood, shopping or walking to church. She was known to our seven children and 14 grandchildren as "Aunt Mary."
Her many Friends gathered at her memorial service; for this, her last trip, a floral arrangement read: Bon Voyage Mary. We hope her story will inspire others to do things that seem impossible and to make the best of what life hands you.
Joan WILLIAMS is Mary's sister.
