OXFORD, Kay Frances Clare (née DAVIDOVICH)
Mother, wife, teacher, college administrator, best friend to many. Born April 12, 1945, in London, England. Died February 8 of cancer in Toronto, aged 61.
By Dianne LOCOCO, Lynne KURYLO and Hilde ZIMMER and Earle OXFORD, Page L6
'I'm the luckiest person in the world." Days after being told that her cancer was inoperable, Kay, on impulse, took off to London for a long weekend. She was the Energizer Bunny, on the hop the whole time.
Kay's affinity for England was engendered by her English mother, Phyllis NASH. Kay's tenacity was engendered by her father, Stephen DAVIDOVICH. Stephen was a Canadian army officer in wartime London, where he met and married Phyllis.
"A wisp of air in a breeze," was how her father described Kay. She flitted from one social engagement to another, gracing hundreds of Friends with warmth, mirth and gifts of the Bruce Peninsula pottery she so loved.
How Kay shoehorned daily coffees, lunches, dinners with Friends and chats with shop clerks, bus drivers and students into her rigorous schedule as an administrator at George Brown College is a study in time management. She worked tirelessly for more than 40 years to facilitate access to education for new Canadians.
Kay's many years of volunteer work reflect her varied interests. A long-time student of Canadian history and heritage, she was a member of and volunteer at the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse museum. Patients in the palliative care unit at Saint Michael's Hospital loved Kay's natural warmth and caring. Her spirit will live on in the lively annual neighbourhood parties that she instigated.
Kay was a saint with a broad swath of wicked humour painted up her steel spine. After her first operation, in 2003, I called her husband, Earle, who said, "Kay's fine." He meant that he hoped Kay would be okay, so I thought Kay was fine and sent flowers with a cocky note: "Start eating. Get off the Calista Flockhart I.V. diet." Kay telephoned. "You don't know they removed 2/3 of my stomach, do you?" I didn't. "I have cancer." I didn't know that either. "The nurses are upset with you." Kay thought it was hilarious. For the next 3½ years, she would tease me about my faux pas and delight in my squirming.
The last time I saw Kay, her health was fading quickly. She was weak and couldn't talk for long. But she spoke of her unbridled love for and pride in her son, John Daniel. She spoke of how wonderfully caring Earle was and the "lovely" talks they were sharing. She whispered, "I'm the luckiest person in the world."
The day before Valentine's Day, St. Philip's Anglican Church was packed. It was a testament not to Kay's luck, but to her heart.
Kay's friend Dianne LOCOCO wrote this with help from Lynne KURYLO, Hilde ZIMMER and Earle OXFORD.

FENETY, Jack Theodore Hampton
Jack Theodore Hampton FENETY, C.M. LL.D. died peacefully at his cherished home in Fredericton, New Brunswick, on July 24, 2007 with his family present. He was born on March 22, 1920, son of the late John G. and Vivian (LINDBERG) FENETY. He was predeceased in 2001 by his loving wife Joyce Eileen (NASON.) Jack was 'Dad' to six children, Michael (Mary Ann,) and Susan DOHERTY, of Fredericton, Jane BEYEA (Don) of Saint John, Anne of Halifax, Krista ARSENAULT (Joseph) of Moncton, and Peter (Beverly) of Fredericton. He is also survived by a brother Linden H., of Florida, nine grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews as well as Sandra Hitchcock, long-time caregiver for both he and Joyce. He is predeceased by a brother, Gordon, and a sister Irene (McCABE.) In 1945, after five years in the Armed Forces, he joined the staff of CFNB, the Fredericton radio station that for many years was foremost in the Maritimes. In 1988, he retired, having served with distinction in roles that ranged from radio personality to Station Manager to Vice President / General Manager, ending as a Management Consultant for the station. As one of Canada's best known broadcasters, he was a trusted news voice for thousands of CFNB listeners across the Maritimes. He is perhaps best known locally as creator and host of the daily morning program, 'Fact and Fancy' which was broadcast to homes and offices across New Brunswick for a total of 12,818 programs. 'The Poetry Corner ', the 'Saturday morning prayer' and his visit with the weather office were some of the hallmarks of the program. As a proud New Brunswicker Jack served his community, his province and his country in many capacities, without moving away from his roots. Jack loved his family, his home, and his Friends. He said he had two jobs he wanted to do, to be a broadcaster and to be a salmon conservationist. He gained pleasure and recognition in both areas, and accomplished much of what he set out to do. Over the years, Jack was elected to numerous regional and national committees that regulated and strengthened radio broadcasting in Canada. FENETY also sat on many prestigious, but demanding international agencies and commissions dedicated to Atlantic salmon conservation. As a result of his work, Jack received many commendations for his years of untiring work in broadcasting and conservation. Most notably, he received an honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from the University of New Brunswick in 1989 and was inducted into the Order of Canada in 2005. The award that he was perhaps most proud of came from the Miramichi Salmon Association when they established, in his name, a $10,000.00 scholarship for Atlantic salmon research, to be made available annually to a selected university graduate student conducting meaningful research on Atlantic salmon. In recognition of his work, the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce awarded him the 'Distinguished Citizen Award' in 1988. He received the Paul Harris Fellowship Award by Fredericton North Rotary Club and the Marysville Y's Men Award for 'extraordinary community service contributing to improving the quality of life in the City of Fredericton'. The New Brunswick Minister of Natural Resources also awarded him a special plaque, in recognition of his many years of service to Atlantic salmon conservation. In consideration of his varied legacies, Jack FENETY has been named a Hall of Famer many times over, with citations in the Canadian Fishing Hall of Fame, the Atlantic Salmon Hall of Fame, the Fredericton Sports Wall of Fame and the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Broadcast Hall of Fame. An Anglican by faith, he was a member of Saint Mary's Parish where he served as a vestryman and later as warden. Visitation is at McAdam's Select Community Funeral Home, York Street, Fredericton on Thursday, July 26 and Friday, July 27 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at Christ Church Cathedral on Saturday, July 28, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. conducted by The Rev'd. Keith Joyce, Dean of Fredericton, assisted by Canon T.A. Smith. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Miramichi Salmon Association, or the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated. Online condolences and donations may be made at: www.mcadamsfh.com

NASRULLA o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-06-18 published
ANWAR, Nasirah
Mother, grandmother, Urdu scholar. Born April 28, 1933, in Aligarh, India. Died March 4, in Mississauga, Ontario, of cancer, aged By Amber NASRULLA, Page L6
Nasirah ANWAR ran her Mississauga home as though it were a 19th-century literary salon. On many occasions, the lights in the living room would be ablaze long into the night, while a visiting Pakistani poet or human-rights lawyer held court. Her husband, Colonel ANWAR Ahmad, invited the eminent guests but it was Auntie Nasirah (as she was known to many) who served pot after pot of chai along with sweet and savoury goodies. The two, married 53 years, were well-known for their sterling dinner parties. She was always elegantly dressed in flowing shalwar kameez (her native dress), accented with a string of pearls.
Auntie Nasirah, the eldest of six, grew up on the campus of Aligarh University, where her father was a prominent professor of medicine. Her mother was a homemaker.
In 1955, Auntie Nasirah completed her master's in Urdu literature at Punjab University in Lahore, Pakistan. Meanwhile, her future husband, Col. ANWAR, was studying in England when he received a letter from his sister indicating that the family had selected a bride for him. The two wed in Pakistan on December 26, 1955. Nearly a month passed, however, before they met at their wedding reception on January 21, 1956. Despite the delayed introduction, theirs proved a solid, loving match: Auntie Nasirah was a gentle foil to her gregarious husband.
She was fond of gardening and, during an army posting in Dhaka, took courses in Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangements. Once they'd had children, they knew the three youngsters would benefit from a Canadian education. Auntie Nasirah was excited about the move and took a year-long course at Karachi's Alliance Française.
"She thought half the people would speak French," Col. ANWAR recalled, "…she was quite disappointed to learn that this was not the case!"
Auntie Nasirah embraced her new Canadian life. She took photography and painting courses. When Col. ANWAR became the president of the Liberal Riding association (Mississauga Centre) in the 1990s, she worked next to him.
Occasionally, Col. ANWAR mused about returning to Pakistan and Auntie Nasirah stopped him, saying, "No way! Our children are happy…" In adulthood, though, most of the children scattered. In all, Auntie Nasirah had eight grandchildren.
She first successfully fought cancer in 1993. Last fall, however, doctors told her the cancer had spread. In her last days, Auntie Nasirah continued to read Urdu poetry. Then, in the middle of the night on March 4, she took several short breaths and was gone.
Amber NASRULLA is a family friend
