IVEY also a very respected businessperson
Former London member of provincial parliament Dianne CUNNINGHAM says Beryl Ivey was 'a role model for many.'
By Joe BELANGER, Sun Media, Thurs., December 27, 2007
Beryl IVEY, whose philanthropy touched the lives of countless, was also an astute London businessperson, her acumen admired by many.
Accolades continued to pour in yesterday for the London icon who died Christmas morning and will be buried in London tomorrow her birthday -- following a private family service.
A memorial service will be held January 11 at Saint Paul's Cathedral in London.
"Most of us know her as a business woman," said Dianne CUNNINGHAM, a former London member of provincial parliament, Ontario cabinet minister and now director of the Lawrence National Centre for Policy and Management at the Richard IVEY School of Business at the University of Western Ontario.
"We were all involved in raising money and there was always a business plan in place. She always asked the questions… She was a role model for many of us."
CUNNINGHAM, who has known Beryl and Dick IVEY for more than 30 years, was devastated by the news of IVEY's death three days before her 83rd birthday after suffering a heart attack on Sunday.
"She taught us to ask questions, be generous and to always say thank you," said CUNNINGHAM. " She was a great advisor for everybody, who would give you her best ideas. Has London ever known a family like this? No. I'm going to miss her very, very much."
Another London icon, Don SMITH, who founded Ellis-Don Ltd., Canada's second-largest construction company, said he lost a "close friend."
SMITH said Beryl IVEY, president of Beehive Investments Inc., sat on many boards, including corporations, but not just in an honorary capacity.
"Her judgement certainly was respected," said SMITH. " She brought to boards an intelligent, female point of view. She'll certainly be missed."
Through her company Beehive, IVEY contributed $1 million toward a $9-million partnership fund for London's National Centre for Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery.
Born Beryl NURSE in 1924 in Chatham to a Canadian army lieutenant-colonel, IVEY was a gifted high school athlete who received a full scholarship to Brescia College at University of Western Ontario in 1943.
It was at school that she met Dick, whom she married in 1949, becoming part of a wealthy family that co-founded the Empire Brass Manufacturing Co., now known as Emco.
It was Dick's father, Richard G. IVEY, who in 1947 incorporated the Ivey Foundation that became such a big part of the couple's lives.
Beryl IVEY is credited with the business-like approach to philanthropy the family adopted in the 1970s. She and Dick passed along control of the foundation to their four children in 1997.
Beryl and Dick IVEY moved to Toronto from London 18 months ago to be closer to their children. In June, Beryl was named to the Order of Canada.
She is survived by her husband, Richard, four children, nine grandchildren and a brother, Robert NURSE.
It's estimated the IVEYs donated about $150 million to philanthropy over several decades.
While much is known about the IVEYs volunteerism and philanthropy toward education, medicine and the arts, not so well known is their wide-ranging interest and support for the environment.
The World Wildlife Fund, the Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Talbot Land Trust are but a few of the IVEY's benefactors.
Judith RODGER, former chair of the London Community Foundation, said Beryl and Dick IVEY "had a sense of the importance of protecting biodiversity.
"If you ever needed good, sensible advice, Beryl was a good person to turn to," said RODGER.
"She was very astute and cared deeply about the environment. And she had a real business sense."
John KIME, former chief executive of the London Economic Development Corp., said the IVEYs didn't give blindly.
"She put discipline into managing their philanthropy," he said.
"They supported things they felt were truly worthwhile. They did wonderful research and then backed those causes or projects strongly, with commitment. She was an extraordinary person in terms of her commitment to this community. It's a huge loss."
In lieu of flowers, the family asks memorial donations be made to Foundation Western at University of Western Ontario or the London Community Foundation. Online condolences may be posted at www.harrisfuneralhome.ca

RODGERS, Jean
In loving memory of a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother who passed away January 7th, 1997.
Time speeds on, ten years have passed
Since death its gloom, its shadow cast
Within our home where all seemed bright,
And took from us a shining light.
We miss that light and ever will,
Her vacant place there's none to fill.
Down here we mourn, but not in vain,
For up in Heaven we will meet again.
- Always in our thoughts, love Watt, Lynne, Dave, Bob and Mary and grandchildren.

Ron BENDER, 60 Educator
Math teacher one of first to receive Prime Minister's Award
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Knowlton, Quebec -- Ron BENDER was a math teacher who taught generations of high-school students, some of whom struggled with algebra while others were gifted in calculus. One of his students was Steve MacLean, the astronaut.
Along with being a math teacher, and then department head, Mr. BENDER also marked advanced tests for gifted students in contests run by the University of Waterloo. "The idea was to create 10 problems for students to solve. They were so difficult neither Ron nor I could solve them all in the exam time frame," said Jeri LUNNEY, a math teacher who worked with Mr. BENDER. As it turned out, only the brightest students could get seven out of 10.
"He was recognized as a first-class teacher within the first five years of his career, Ms. LUNNEY said. "He was charismatic, passionate and an excellent communicator."
Few of Ron BENDER's students forged brilliant careers. Most were plodders who were afraid of math. "Let's face it, he had kids who didn't want to be in his class," said his wife, Sharon Ann. "But if he could show a student something, and get the switch to go on, it really made his day."
Mr. BENDER knew that, in the modern world, an understanding of math beyond basic arithmetic was essential.
"I would go by his classroom and he would be using a ball to explain the concept of a sphere," said Moe RODRIGUE, who started teaching with Mr. BENDER and went on to become principal of West Carlton Secondary School. "A lot of math teachers just pick up homework and assign homework. Ron wasn't like that. He was a natural teacher and involved with his students."
Ron BENDER grew up near Timmins, Ontario, where his father worked for the highways department and his mother was a housewife. A bright lad, he skipped a couple of elementary grades and then travelled an hour each way to attend high school in Timmins. When there was activity after school, he would sometimes stay in town with an aunt.
In 1964, he won a full scholarship to study math at the University of Waterloo. He graduated four years later and began teaching at Merivale High School in the Ottawa suburb of Nepean. It was at Merivale that he taught Steve MacLean, who went on to earn a doctorate in physics. It was also where he met his wife, the school secretary. They married in 1970.
In 1973, he moved to nearby Gloucester High School. The BENDERs bought a house and a parcel of land in Carp, Ontario, where they raised their children and could work outdoors. "He loved a well-stacked woodpile," Mrs. BENDER said.
Mr. BENDER also liked to visit his hometown. "He came to teach in the Ottawa area and, for the first few years, always thought he would go home some day."
After Gloucester High School, Mr. BENDER was made head of mathematics department at Earl of March Secondary School in Ottawa's western suburbs. Later, he moved to the new West Carleton Secondary School as head of the math department. "I never remember a day when he complained about going to work," Mrs. BENDER said.
In 2000, Mr. BENDER retired but remained involved in mathematics. He worked at the University of Ottawa, tutoring first-year engineering students who were weak in math.
Over the years, he received many awards for his teaching. In 1993, he was in the first group of teachers to receive the Prime Minister's Award for Teaching Excellence in Science, Technology and Mathematics. The University of Waterloo gave him the Descartes Award, named after the 17th-century French mathematician, René Descartes.
Ronald Cecil BENDER was born in Matheson, Ontario, on October 12, 1946. He died of leukemia in Ottawa on June 13, 2007. He was 60. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Ann, and their children Matt and Amy.

MOORE, Allan
A good man has left us. A very good man. Quietly and peacefully, Allan MOORE slipped away on January 6 after he could no longer conquer the ailments that afflicted him in recent years. Allan was a man of courage, conviction and compassion. The youngest child in a family of modest means, he was the first with the good fortune to go to university. His resolute determination led to a successful and accomplished career as a C.A. Perhaps the highest tribute was paid to him just over a year ago when the Manitoba Institute of Chartered Accountants honoured Allan with their Lifetime Achievement Award. Allan's achievements were not limited to the workplace. Always mindful of his roots and grateful for his successes, he strongly believed that it was equally important to give back to the community. He devoted himself tirelessly to volunteering his talents and energy to enrich the lives of others. The list of charities and institutions in Winnipeg to which he devoted his efforts is lengthy - the Manitoba Opera, L'Arche, the Blue Bombers, to name just a few. Among his most notable achievements was as Chair man of the United Way campaign in 1973. But the most important part of Allan's story has nothing to do with public accomplishments. It's about the man he was loving, caring, always possessed of unwavering good humour, a strong moral compass and an unending concern for others. His warmth and spirit, like his smile and the twinkle in his blue Irish eyes, was ever present. The sun could be shining or the storm clouds rolling in. It didn't matter. He lived his life with an unquenchable and infectious optimism. His sails always found the wind, even when it seemed there was none. As a young man, he crossed paths with an effervescent young woman who had moved from Greece to his hometown of Hamilton. That woman was Vivian, his wife and soulmate for the next 52 years. Early in their marriage they moved west and put down roots in Winnipeg. They lived life fully, travelling the world and touching down on every continent on the planet. Together they would light up any room they entered and their very obvious love and affection for each other was an inspiration for others. Allan will also be remembered warmly by his wide circle of Friends- childhood chums from Hamilton, neighbours, extended family, golfing buddies, fellow Victoria Beach cottagers, business associates- for his uncompromising and unconditional Friendship. He was a man they loved, respected and trusted. And deeply loved he was by those closest. His wife Vivian, who passed away in 2005. His sons Paul and David, Paul's wife Susan SWAN and David's partner Alfredo RODRIGUEZ, and his adored and adoring grand_sons Graydon and Jonathan. Allan is survived by his sister Thelma of Hamilton and was predeceased by his brother Lloyd of Burlington. To a very good man, we say our farewell. Not through tears of grief but with thanks and love for bestowing on us the great fortune of being part of your life. All of us are so much richer for it, and there is truly no greater legacy. A private funeral will be held in Toronto followed by an interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery with Vivian. At the family's request, no flowers please. But you can honour Allan with a donation to the Parkinson Society of Canada at 1-800-565-3000 or www.parkinson.ca

GAMBLE, Erik John Darryl
Father, artist, musician, island boy, morel hunter, gourmand. Born October 14, 1950, in Toronto. Died May 20 in Toronto of diabetes, aged 56.
By Lupe RODRIGUEZ, Page L6
I first met Erik in 1967 when I was 14. His younger sister invited me to their home on Ward's Island, a natural paradise off Toronto's mainland.
He was always in the distance: the tall, lanky, elusive artist whose soft long curls and rumpled good looks resembled a sexy cross between Bob Dylan and John Lennon. As a rebellious, creative, foreboding young man, Erik embodied the creative spirit of the late 1960s: At the grand old age of 17, he was already both romantic and cynical.
From his earliest years Eric defined himself through his art, as a painter and a musician with his band, Moonfood. Not one for systems or conventions, he left Jarvis Collegiate to attend a specialized art program at Central Tech, followed by a series of courses at Toronto's New School of Art.
Erik painted diligently and with passion. His large, abstract paintings, with their luscious vivid colours, rich textures and unique combination of organic and rectangular forms, were accomplished works of art. By his mid-20s Erik was exhibiting at the renowned David Mirvish Gallery in the company of major U.S. and Canadian abstractionists. He participated in exhibitions across Canada and the United States and his work was represented in major art collections. He exhibited with a number of galleries, but as time passed and trends changed Erik, like many other artists, lost popularity with dealers, curators and the public. Although he kept painting, he lost interest in playing the "art game."
In 1980, Erik became reacquainted with his beautiful Grade 9 sweetheart, Madeleine, at a Ward's Island dance. A true romantic, he was totally besotted. Madeleine had a daughter, Genevieve. They soon married and had two more daughters, Eliza and Diana. Erik was a proud and loving father, but sadly the marriage ended in 1985.
Many of us knew Erik the great chef and true gourmand. Following an extended stay in Deia, an idyllic village on the island of Majorca in Spain, Erik cooked up feasts of Spanish tapas. On one of my last visits, we shared a picnic of thinly sliced prosciutto, stuffed olives with anchovies and Portuguese bread with olive oil and fresh herbs.
A part of Erik will always be with us. Whether we're taking a ferry to Toronto Island on a breezy summer day, visiting a painting exhibition, listening to world music, painting a watercolour, looking for a fun dance partner or tasting the earthiness of the morel mushrooms he hunted every spring, Erik is sure to be there.
Lupe RODRIGUEZ is a friend of Erik.
