TAILOR/TAYLOR, Isobel Audrey
Passed suddenly yet peacefully, September 12, 2007. Devoted wife to Paul, loving mother of Jeff (Diane DEAN,) Ann (Jamie McALPINE,) Scott (Sharonne YOUNG,) Sue TAILOR/TAYLOR, doting Grandmother to Carrie and Randall ROTH, Jennifer and Paula TAILOR/TAYLOR, Jane and Laura McALPINE, Jennifer and Kimberly DEAN, excited Great-grandmother of Ben ROTH. She shall be sadly missed though fondly mused by all. Those privileged to have known her can attest to a life, lived fully as the embodiment of faith, unwavering selflessness and a tireless devotion through her compassion for the betterment of, not only those she knew, but many unmet. Demonstrated by her many years' involvement in her community including tenure as Director of the Credit Reserve Association, President of the Mississauga Symphony Woman's Committee and as a perennial volunteer for the Cancer Society, she never demanded more than she did of herself. Others could only revel at her pace - a bar set high - physically, emotionally and spiritually. In eighty-four short years, she wasted none, travelled many, learned much and let all be savoured. Surely, now she rests in Heaven's embrace. Friends will be received at The Funeral Home of Skinner and Middlebrook, one block west of Hurontario Street at 128 Lakeshore Road East, Mississauga, Ontario L5G 1E4, (905) 278-5546 on Monday, September 17, 2007 between 7 and 9 p.m. A Memorial Service will be held at Lorne Park Baptist Church, 1500 Indian Road, Mississauga, Ontario, L5H 1S7 (905) 278-7833, on Tuesday, September 18, 2007 at 11 a.m. - a luncheon to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to: Lorne Park Baptist Church.

BELL, Mary-Ellen (née THORNBURY)
It is with deep sadness that her family announces the death of Mary-Ellen BELL. She died peacefully in the early morning hours of July 30th, 2007 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Beloved wife of the late George E. BELL. Loving and devoted mother of Jilean (Mark ROTHARMEL.) Much-loved and devoted 'Nanny' to her grandchildren Owen and Marina. Mary-Ellen was very fortunate to be part of a large and loving family and the support and love of the Thornbury clan extends like a warm embrace to all of us. She was also blessed with the love of many caring nieces and nephews who thought the world of her. Her deep connection to her family extended to her beloved grandchildren upon whom she bestowed praise, affection and love. She created many wonderful memories for her family that they will cherish forever. Mary-Ellen touched everyone she knew with her thoughtfulness, warmth and generosity. She lived life to the fullest and pursued many activities and interests. She was a beautiful and elegant woman and a natural athlete who excelled at many sports from semi-pro baseball to golfing and competitive curling and, in her later years, she took up tai chi. She had a lengthy career at Confederation Life before her marriage, quite an accomplishment in those days. Mary-Ellen's varied interests ranged from antique-hunting to gardening and she happily enjoyed traveling near and far whether at the cottage preparing for large gatherings of family and Friends or traveling across Canada and the U.S. Underpinning all these things were her strong sense of family values and her care and concern for others. Mary-Ellen was an active volunteer at a great number of church and community events throughout her lifetime. Her strong sense of values, her boundless energy and her love of life are among the many memories of MaryEllen we will hold close to our hearts. The family wishes to thank their Friends, neighbours and extended family for their love and support and to thank Sylvia Partab, Mary-Ellen's friend and companion, for her compassion and caring from the first moment we met her. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, August 2nd. A Family Service of Remembrance and Celebration for Mary-Ellen's life will be held in Woodville United Church, Woodville, Ontario on Friday, August 3rd at 1: 00 p.m. Interment at Smith's Cemetery, Woodville. Reception to follow at Woodville United Church. If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations in MaryEllen's name may be made to the Sunnybrook Foundation or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com.

LARSEN, Doctor Donn
Dr. Donn LARSEN was born in Copenhagen, on December 4, 1927, and died of cancer on May 15, 2007, in Vancouver. Donn was an Eagle Scout who prided himself on thinking outside the box long before that term was coined. Donn was passionate about business and negotiations, beginning as a black marketeer and business entrepreneur when just a teenager in occupied Denmark. He was an Industrial Designer and, after immigrating to Canada, operated Donn Larsen Office Interiors Ltd. It was an innovative and successful firm specializing in industrial and furniture design, office space planning and interior construction. Donn was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, London, England, and was appointed as an Honorary Member of the Registered Interior Designer Institute of Alberta in 1983. After retiring from his business, Donn continued consulting in the design field, became a mentor to many aspiring business people, and volunteered his unique and spirited efforts to a number of organizations. Donn was the Danish Consul for Edmonton from 1977-1998, receiving the Order of the Dannebro from Queen Margrethe II of Denmark for his long and dedicated service. Donn was first a member, and then the Chairperson, of the Governing Council of Athabasca University, from 1981-1992. After extensive travel and consultations with other distance learning institutions, Donn received an honorary doctorate in Business Administration from Ramkhamhaeng University in Thailand. He was the first non-Thai to be so honored. Governor-General Adrienne Clarkson honored Donn's commitment and service by awarding him a Grant of Arms in 1999. Donn also received much recognition for his contributions to international humanitarian projects and other public service. A lifelong learner, Donn was always eager to expand and share his knowledge, and promoted innovation in education. Donn was an accomplished pianist, who passionately believed that music was a necessary part of life. Donn was eccentric, brilliant, and didn't suffer fools gladly. Donn and his wife Ella loved entertaining, and hosted many wonderful parties in their Old Glenora home in Edmonton. Donn and Ella also kept an apartment in the West End of Vancouver since 1970, and retired there in 2001. Donn and Ella were married for over 53 years. She was his partner in everything and his number one supporter. Sadly, Ella's illness with Alzheimer's' Disease separated them prematurely. Predeceased by his parents and nephew, Per CHRISTENSEN Jr., Donn is survived by Ella, now a resident of Yaletown House in Vancouver, and many nieces and nephews, Friends and colleagues. He will particularly be missed by niece Dorte PITTAWAY, great-niece Margot PITTAWAY, nephew Paul CHRISTENSEN (Kim ROTHERY,) and companion Marion ROLSTON. No service by request, as Donn would much rather have a party than a funeral. Flowers gratefully declined, but donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Donn loved telling stories, so please share a story and offer a final Skol!
