HARTLEY, Strachan, B.Sc., M.Sc., M.D.
After a courageous 21 months, Strachan lost his battle against Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma July 5th, 2007 at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. Prior to his illness, he experienced short but unfettered joy as an M.D. pursuing his orthopedic surgery residency at McGill. Strachan is survived by his devoted wife Doctor Chloe ROUMAIN, proud parents Mary Ann and Michael, and loving siblings Aimee-Noel, Wyatt and Blythe. Sharing their daughter's loss are parents-in-law Pierre YVES and Françoise ROUMAIN of Haiti and sister Stephanie READ and family in Miami. While his Uncle Peter HARTLEY, Aunt Catherine LOUVET and cousins Camille and Lauren feel a particularly strong loss as they acted as his surrogate family during his 7.5 years in Montreal, their grief is shared equally with his Uncles and Aunts Ian and Mary-Louise and Susan HARTLEY, Glenn and Margaret MUNRO, Jim MUNRO and Margaret DRAGU and cousins Megan, Brian, Scott, Kim, Josh and Aretha. He was predeceased by his grandparents Herb and Simone HARTLEY and Ralph and Isabelle MUNRO of Toronto. During his 30 years, Strachan left a powerful legacy of Friendship, sport and scholarship in Edmonton, Vancouver and Montreal. His captaincy of the 1997 Vanier Cup Champion University of British Columbia Thunderbirds football team and subsequently of the McGill Redmen football team are testament to his leadership and commitment to others. Earning All-Star status in both leagues, 5-time Academic All-Canadian Honours, the Russ Jackson Award as the top community, academic and athletic achiever in the Province of Quebec and twice bestowed with the prestigious Canadian Interuniversity Sports Award as one of the Top 8 most outstanding academic, leadership and athletic performers in Canadian sports are tributes of his tremendous work ethic and strength of character. His successful completion of medical school while battling cancer speaks to the bravery and determination of this truly remarkable man who wanted to make a difference in this world. But most of all, Strachan will be remembered for his warm sense of humor, compassion and integrity. All who knew him cannot wonder what might have been. Why, when he had so much to give, was he taken from us? Sleep in peace wonderful Prince. We will carry you always in our hearts. The family wishes to acknowledge all the amazing Friends and community members who supported Strachan during his life and illness. Your overwhelming caring and compassion touched him and the family deeply and helped soothe his burden. In lieu of flowers, the Hartleys have requested that Friends honour Strachan's memory through the Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation. The Legacy Foundation is designed to further Strachan's life goal of making a difference in the world. All donations will receive a tax deductible receipt. Please make cheques payable to the Tides Foundation c/o Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation 468 Arbutus Ave. Duncan, British Columbia V9L 5X6

WITHER, Isobel Fleming (née POTTER) (1923-2007)
Born in Cypress River, Manitoba, Isobel passed away peacefully on Friday, November 9th at Providence Health Care Centre in Toronto. Isobel lived in Winnipeg for most of her life where she and her late husband Glenn raised their family. She will be lovingly remembered by her children and their families; Joan and Tim ROUNDS (Laurel, Will, and his wife Anthea,) Bruce and Joan WITHER (Robert, John and Allison) and Don and Donna WITHER (Jacqueline.) Isobel was predeceased by her husband Glenn in 1981 after 35 wonderful years of marriage. Isobel's focus was charity work with over 40 years working for the McKinnon Guild in Winnipeg, supporting the Children's Hospital Foundation. She was a prodigious knitter, providing yearly sweaters for her grandchildren and mittens for all. She enjoyed her golf and the many Friendships she made at Southwood Golf and Country Club. Her fondest memories are of her youth spent at Fox Lake with her brother Ross and cousins David and Margaret. Despite Rheumatoid Arthritis, Isobel proudly maintained her independence in Winnipeg until last Christmas, when a fall necessitated her move to Toronto. Although Winnipeg was always her home, her close proximity to her children in her last year was a blessing to all. Many thanks to the compassionate staff at Providence Health Care Centre for their help and support, particularly in her last few months. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to The Arthritis Society or Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. A private family memorial will be held in Toronto, followed this spring with her interment and a celebration of her life in Winnipeg.

Edith left Hungary for Canada following her 1938 wedding and spent many happy years in Montreal where she turned her diverse talents to being a devoted mother. With her life partner, Edith enjoyed traveling to the far corners of the world. Widowed in 1977, she moved to Toronto where she lived for almost thirty years. Due to failing health, Edith relocated to Calgary to be with her family in October 2006. Always willing to lend a sympathetic ear, she leaves behind many Friends of all ages who recognized and appreciated her wisdom, intelligence, compassion and lady-like elegance. Our mother frequently said that 'it was not by words that I would wish my life distinguished but rather by deeds done'. In this spirit she volunteered with the Royal Ontario Museum and with the Canadian Blood Services, the latter until the age of 87 years.

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.

HUFF, Gordon MAC (February 20, 1917-August 24, 2007)
'Mac Celebrating His 90th'
It is with sadness we announce the death of Gordon Mac HUFF, a man who gave generously to his family, his Friends and neighbours, and to his community. Born in Chatham, Ontario, over the years Mac lived in Kent Bridge, Hamilton, London, Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa. Mac had a 'brilliant career' as a top salesman for Addressograph Multigraph where one of his major accomplishments was the development and sale of a machine to print postal money orders, which ended up in every postal outlet in Canada. And in his very active social life, Mac helped to found the first ski club in London, Ontario, he was an early member of the Ottawa Hunt Club, and a longstanding and faithful member of the Rideau Kiwanis. After his retirement Mac provided countless volunteer hours building custom adaptive equipment for the Ottawa Children's Treatment Centre. His great passions for woodworking led him to join Ottawa's wood tur ners' community as well. Mac was predeceased by his beloved wife Angela (née NEUMANN) and his brother Jim (Frances BURTON.) He is survived by his nieces Katheleen (Jake BANKY), Margaret (Peter HUFF- ROUSSELLE) and Elizabeth (Jamie SARGENT.) 'Uncle Mac' spread bad jokes and good humour wherever he went and was a much-loved favourite of his grand-nieces and grandnephews. He regularly terrorized the west coast on board his old pal Bob McCollum's boat and could claim full responsibility for establishing the tradition of the Sunday-morning Caesar among the Gulf Islands of British Columbia. Mac's commanding presence and his extraordinary sense of fun will be missed by his family and by his many Friends and neighbours on Woodview Crescent, Blackburn Hamlet (Ottawa). The family wishes to express thanks to the employees of the Ottawa General Hospital, the Elizabeth Bruyere Health Centre, and most of all at 'Amica at Bearbrook' - where so many have provided Mac with supportive and skilled care over the past few years. And finally the family would like to express our deepest appreciation to Hugh O'Gorman and to Ellen Philps. Donations in Mac's memory could be given to the Ottawa Children's Treatment Centre Foundation (613.738.4335). A memorial service will be held at Amica at Bearbrook, 2645 Innes Road, Ottawa, at 2: 00 p.m. on September 21, 2007. Condolences/Donations at: mcgarryfamily.ca (613) 233-1143.

HALE, George Morris (1922-2007)
On November 17, 2007, George Morris HALE accepted the starter's call for his divine tee time at 10: 30 a.m. George spent his final days at Kingston General Hospital, within the confines of his beloved alma mater, Queen's University, singing with his loved ones. George's passion for his Welsh heritage was unrivalled even though he came to Canada four years after his birth in Cwmtillery on December 23, 1922. He held St. David's Day celebrations the world over, awarded the Welsh Cup in family competitions (the highest honour attainable) and had a zeal for music - so much so that George's religious affiliation was determined by the quality of the choir. Queen's University offered George more than a diploma (Science '45, Masters '47): he met his true love Mary Lillian CONNER (Arts '45 - one of the famed Goodwin House Girls), forged essential life-long Friendships and instilled in his children the value of a university experience. While 'The Graduate' may have suggested it, George lived the future - an official Canadian Plastics Pioneer. His career course began in Shawinigan Falls and continued to North York, Brampton, Pointe Claire and culminated with the prestigious position as President, China Gulf Plastics Corp. in Taipei, Taiwan. His success afforded George and Mary, often accompanied by good Friends, the opportunity to travel the globe and experience its pleasures. Retiring from the plastics industry in 1976, George resettled the family in St. Catharines where he opened the Marco Polo Shop - keeping Mary and him occupied between golf and bridge games. His final years were spent in Kingston, enjoying the love and companionship of Ruth CHISAMORE, together wreaking havoc at the Kingsdale bridge tables. Predeceased by his wife Mary, granddaughter Michelle, sister Lilian and brother Cyril. Survived by his sister Kitty (Kathleen) and recognized progeny Richard (Skip), Susan (Doug ROUTLEDGE,) Jeff (Ted COOPER,) David (France) and Alison (spinster librarian); grandchildren Michael (Julie), Taben, Devin, Sarah (Dave LANOVAZ), Julie (Nathan LAX), Jordan, John Lee COOPER, Mathieu BOURBONNAIS; great-grand_son Liam LANOVAZ and his dearest companion Ruth CHISAMORE. A celebration of George's life will be held at the Country Squire Inn in Gananoque on November 24, at 7: 00 p.m. For accommodations in the Hale block, call 613-382-3511. Although we are requesting casual attire, George would have preferred 'clothing optional.' Please share your memories with us at www.jamesreidfuneralhome.com. In recognition of his life-long passion for music, in lieu of flowers, please offer a donation to a musical organization of your choice.
