HARRIS, Eugenia Jennifer (née BARTMAN)
(June 8, 1921-October 10, 2007)
Jennifer HARRIS was a petite dynamo with a heart of gold. She had wide turquoise eyes and wore a winning smile under a crown of brilliant red hair. Never meek, she was a strong business woman, loving wife and devoted family matriarch. Born in 1921 to Sam and Anna BARTMAN, Ukrainian immigrants, Jenny grew up during the Great Depression with her 10 siblings on a farm outside Vegreville, Alberta. Under these conditions, she developed an independent character, a strong work ethic, a wealth of common sense and a belief in the importance of family. She maintained a youthful appearance and indomitable spirit throughout her life, advocating a healthy lifestyle and the power of positive thinking. After attending business school, Jenny met and married Perry HARRIS in Vancouver in 1946. They moved to Etobicoke in 1959 with their sons, Robert (Bob) and Al. In 1980, Perry and Jennifer bought Select Brushes, where they worked together, alongside their son Al. Following Perry's death in 1994, Jennifer continued to go to work every day until her early 80's. Upon recently learning that she had pancreatic cancer, Jenny declared that she had been blessed with a long, wonderful life. She was determined to have one last Thanksgiving dinner with her family and Friends, and having given thanks, she died peacefully at home two days later on October 10, 2007. By her side were her loving children Bob and Al, their wives Mary and Heather, and her beloved grandchildren Erin and Mark HARRIS and Alastair TIVY- HARRIS. She was the best Mother, Mother-in-law and Nana one could have, embracing these roles with characteristic energy and love. She also leaves to miss her, her brother-in-law Peter HARRIS, his wife Vivian, and their children Carolyn and Douglas, and her sisters Emily, Rose, Nancy, Olive and their families. She was predeceased by her siblings Minnie, Mary, Sophie, Walter, Michael and Eugene. The family wishes to thank Vivian HARRIS and Jenny's close Friends who lovingly cared for her during her illness: Diane and Peter WAKEFIELD, Patience and Mac ROURKE, and, especially Betty MILNE. Heartfelt thanks as well to Doctor Vincent MAIDA for exceptional palliative care and support for Jenny's wish to take this journey with minimal medical intervention and to die with peace and dignity in her own home. Private burial has taken place. A memorial service to honour and celebrate Jenny's life will be held at 12 noon on Sunday, October 21 at Ward Funeral Chapel, 109 Reynolds Street, Oakville. If desired, contributions in memory of Jenny's life may be made to The Ride to Conquer Cancer: www.conquercancer.ca., Robert HARRIS, participant. Jennifer believed strongly in taking responsibility for one's life choices. An avid bridge player, she lived by the motto 'In the game of life, play the best hand you can, with the cards you've been dealt.' She remains an inspiration to us all.

MAIDMENT, Louise A. (née BETTS)
In loving memory of a dear wife, mother and grandma, Louise A. MAIDMENT née BETTS. Went to be with the Lord October 27, 2003.
Look around your garden, Lord,
She won't be hard to find,
She has a face that's full of love,
And a heart that is good and kind.
Tell her that we love her, Lord
And hold her for a while.
- Glen, family and Friends.

HERZ, Robert (a.k.a. "Robin")
Passed away peacefully at his North York home, Saturday, June 9, 2007 in his 77th year, born in Brno, Czechoslovakia. Survived by his loving daughter Liza HERZ- MacINNIS and her husband Craig MacINNIS of Toronto, nephew Michael HERZ and wife Helga of Waterloo, nephew Steve HERZ and wife Nicola of Calgary, sisters-in-law Ingrid HERZ of Toronto and Elizabeth Charlotte BAHNSON of Copenhagen. Predeceased by his wife of 50 years, Renata, who died in 2005 with Robin by her side, and by his brother Macek, who died in 1984. Remembered fondly by his beloved madrich Franta MAIER and 'The Boys,' the tight-knit and fiercely loyal group of Holocaust survivors who found themselves, during World War 2, incarcerated as children by the Nazis at Terezin and later at Auschwitz, forging lifelong bonds that remain unbroken despite geographical distance and illness.
Moving to Canada as a war orphan, Robert met Renata, another Czech emigree, in Toronto in 1955. They were married six months later. He lived a happy, productive life as an industrial accountant, refusing, in both attitude and deed, to let his wartime experiences conquer his spirit. As one of the profiled subjects in Thelma Gruenbaum's poignant 2004 book, Nesarim: Child Survivors of Terezin, Robert offered his musings on the war's lasting effects: 'Whatever it was, good, bad or terrible, this was the greatest, biggest thing that ever happened to us. Of our family, only my brother and I came back. I always say, I don't need to buy a lottery ticket. I won the lottery the first time.'
A memorial service will be held for family at a later date.

MAIER, Karl Robert
October 9, 1933 Zeltweg, Steiermark, Austria - August 30, 2007 Scarborough, Ontario, Canada
Peacefully and with his family at his side, Karl was gently lifted to Heaven by angels after a long illness. Husband, best friend and soul mate to his wife Liesbeth of 53 years, outstanding father to sons Robert (Barbara-Anne) and Richard (Daniela), and to his loving daughter Monica (James); brother to Christl (Otmar) and Heinz (Christine) from Austria and Annemarie (Tony) of Germany. Opa captivated his 7 grandchildren, James, Natalie, Ryan, Erik, Olivia, Benjamin and Isabel with stories about nature and his youth. They will greatly miss his loving and caring guidance. Born in the mountains of Austria and a lover of the outdoors, Karl was an avid downhill skier, fly fisherman, hiker, forester, sailor, windsurfer and golfer. He treasured the cottage that he and Liesbeth built with their own hands on Chandos Lake Ontario. Karl passed these passions on to his children and grandchildren and to anyone who was fortunate enough to enjoy some time up at his 'Pleasant Point'. He came to Canada in 1953 at the age of 19 as a trained tool and die machinist and as an engineer from Voest Alpine in Liezen Austria, landing in Toronto working for English Electric (later General Electric Canada) building Canada's first nuclear turbines and retiring only this year as an entrepreneur and owner of PUMA Engineering, the company he founded in 1979. With a smile that could tame any wild beast, Karl had the ability to make Friends in any type of environment and those Friendships, spanning the globe, have lasted a lifetime. Over the years Karl was always proudly and stubbornly, fair and honest, black 'n' white in his dealings never grey. A special thank you to Karl's long time buddy, Doctor Ed MORAN of Millbrook, Ontario who came to visit every week. Ed was generous with his love and caring advice and the two enjoyed their weekly discussions about books, politics and the 'Black Hole' way out there. A memorial is planned for 2 p.m. on Thursday, September 6th, 2007 at McDougall and Brown Funeral Home, 2900 Kingston Road, Scarborough, Ontario M1M 1N5, 416-267-4656. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to Doctor Lorne ZINMAN, Neurologist at Sunnybrook Hospital for his ongoing research into neuromuscular diseases.

MAINPRIZE, Joan
December 17, 2005.
Little 1 knew that morning,
God was going to call your name,
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I do the same.
It broke my heart to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of me went with you
The day God called you home.
You left me beautiful memories,
Your love is still my guide,
And though I cannot see you,
You are always at my side.
- Missing you always, remembered and loved, Gord.

MAINPRIZE, Joan " Mom"
if we could bring you back again,
For one more hour or day,
We'd express all our unspoken love
We'd have countless things to say.
if we could bring you back again,
We'd say we treasured you,
And that your presence in our lives
Meant more than we ever knew.
If we could bring you back again,
To tell you what we should,
You'd know how much we miss you now,
And if we could, we would.
- Always remembered, Jim BELL and the boys.

MAINS, Heather Lee (February 1, 1957-September 1, 2007)
Heather has left us, but she leaves an enduring legacy. Heather's advocacy in the not-for-profit sector reflected her deep concern about how people can interact compassionately with other people, animals, and the environment. She was a dedicated champion of women's health and well-being; a funloving mother to Curtis and Mia; and a friend to society's under-served. 'Helping to transform social cause into social action' was both her mantra and that of the social marketing company, Duegood, she founded with her life partner, John. In Heather's various roles as mother, doula, speaker, and educator, she thrived on connecting people and ideas. Her interests were boundless and her curiosity was endless. Whether curating art shows, breaking new ground in quality maternal care, exploring self healing through Jin Shin Jyutsu, or carving down a ski hill, Heather embraced life with energy, flair and compassion. Nature - and especially, water - were fundamental to Heather's spiritual being. She died in a kayaking accident on the Tay River in Perth, Ontario. Heather's network of colleagues, Friends and family are invited to remember and celebrate her fifty years of life in a memorial service at the Metropolitan Community Church, 115 Simpson Ave., Toronto on Saturday, September 22 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please support the causes that were close to Heather's heart. Consider donating to your local hospice, or to the Association for Research on Mothering (www.yorku.ca/arm/) or to Dona (www.dona.org). Through water Heather lives and plays. Through water she leaves us behind and continues her journey. Through water her spirit will always remain with us.

EIDT, James Kenneth " Jim"
Broadcast journalist, documentary filmmaker, old timers' hockey player, Toronto Maple Leafs fan, husband, cat daddy. Born December 16, 1955, in London, Ontario Died September 8 in Venice, Italy, aged By Michael MAITLAND, Page L8
Jim EIDT's lack of ego was probably best reflected by his business attire, which usually consisted of shorts, running shoes and a well-worn hockey old-timers' golf shirt.
A graduate of the journalism program at Ryerson University in Toronto, Jim began his career in Alberta where he honed his craft working in Lethbridge, Red Deer, Calgary and Edmonton.
In Calgary he met Nancy. They married and in 1990 moved to Victoria where Jim turned his energies into making Pan Productions Ltd.
While corporate and government videos and post-production services kept the doors at Pan open, television production was his true passion.
His pride in being a Canadian was equalled by his commitment to telling Canadian stories.
There was a time, or so the story goes, when his niece lamented about "Canadian" television. Jim outlined the merits of, and the need for, Canadian television and by the end his niece had become a fan.
Jim will perhaps be best remembered for Terry Fox Remembered, a film he dedicated to the memory of his mother, the late Shirley EIDT, the former Scarborough councillor who welcomed Mr. Fox to Toronto.
Other productions include the award-winning Crowded at the Bottom and the television series Good to Go, about the trials and tribulations of producing a Canadian feature film.
His ability in the editing suite was matched by his extraordinary skill with a pen, his love of literacy and his passion for hockey.
Jim's dedication to the Maple Leafs never waned and he would try to get into a Leafs game whenever he was in Toronto on film business.
Ever health-conscious, Jim played for two old-timer teams in Victoria, the Silver Bullets and the Pharma Kings.
On more than one occasion while working with him, I would catch him eyeing the clock.
We had work to do but, equally as important, the puck was about to drop. Jim had it timed just right so he could be out the door and on the ice in 15 minutes.
Yet his greatest passion wasNancy, his wife of 27 years. Their mutual love of travel took them to Europe whenever possible.
It was during the first week of a month-long vacation to Europe that Jim suffered a fatal heart attack.
Jim EIDT was above all a man of rock-solid integrity. He will be dearly missed by Friends and family, but most of all by his loving wife and cats Ruffian and Elmo.
Michael MAITLAND co-produced several films with Jim EIDT.

Extraordinary woman, loving wife of Morgan and devoted mother of Carmen, Roseline passed away in the comfort of her home surrounded by her admiring family. Roseline will be deeply missed by Morgan, Carmen, parents Harry and Evelyn CICCONI of Nanaimo, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law Paul and Gail STURDY and Ron and Diane MAITLAND and nieces Sandy, Lindsey and Courtney and their husbands and her nephew Greg and his wife. Though her life was cut short, we remember the gifts that Roseline brought to us and the profound impact she had on the lives of so many. Roseline impressed and amazed those she touched by her magical zest for life, her curiosity, energy, fresh perspective and her remarkable creativity. She had a unique ability to make every day and moment count and was a genuine example of living each day to the fullest. A generous, selfless and kind spirit, she was always there to offer her love and Friendship without expectation or recognition. Her smile would light up a room. Her infectious enthusiasm would light up other people. And her ability to see the humour in things would put every one at ease. You couldn't help but soak up the sunshine she radiated. A successful business woman who turned her attention to raising Carmen, she continued to express her creative side through her many hobbies and interests. And no matter where she applied that creativity, it left people awestruck. Loving everything Mother Nature offered, Roseline was at peace nurturing the soil and creating exquisite beauty in her gardens. They reflected who she was - beauty, vibrancy and happiness. For the two and half years she valiantly battled health challenges, she was unrelentingly positive, unfailingly optimistic and remained focused on the needs of others. Her strength, courage and conviction will be a lasting inspiration for those that knew and loved her. She will be sorely missed by all but will never be forgotten by anyone who had the privilege of being touched by her. The family is extremely grateful for the care and compassion provided by Doctor Paul Sugar. A memorial service will be held on Monday, November 12th, at 2: 30 p.m. at St. David's United Church at 1525 Taylor Way, West Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation for Colorectal Research in memory of Roseline STURDY.
