SENBA " Semba," Masayoshi
Passed away peacefully at the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on December 30, 2006 at the age of 59. Born in Sendai, Japan on October 24, 1947, Masayoshi was the first son of Masataka and Kazuko SENBA. Growing up in Tokyo, Masa showed keen interests in physical sciences from early on, setting up his first laboratory in a closet when he was 11. Convinced that physics held the key to truth, Masa studied at the Tokyo University of Education, where he met Kazue (née NUMAKURA) who was playing in the same university orchestra. They were married in 1972. The couple moved two years later to the U.S.A. to study at Rutgers University and Masa obtained a Ph.D. in physics in 1980. In 1981 he moved to Vancouver, British Columbia to conduct experimental and theoretical research in solid state, atomic and nuclear physics and physical chemistry at TRIUMF. Masa moved to Halifax in 1996 to join his wife and later became a Professor Research in the Department of Physics and Atmospheric Science at Dalhousie University. Masa made original contributions to several fields of physics. In particular he provided a precise theoretical frame work, called the time-ordered stochastic method, to investigate spin and charge exchange phenomena involving hydrogen-like species, with the goal to understand various experimentally observable quantities in terms of fundamental physical quantities inherent in the process in question, such as quantum mechanical spin flip rates and atomic collision cross sections. His theoretical method has been applied successfully to a wide variety of experimental situations in solid state physics, physical chemistry, and atomic physics. He lectured regularly at the Russian Academy of Sciences Winter School of Physics in St. Petersburg, Russia since 1998, and gave a series of seminars at the Rutherford-Appleton Laboratory in Oxford, United Kingdom in 2002. Masa also taught physics at Dalhousie University, where he was known to push his students hard while taking great care to ensure thorough understanding, always earning their respect and appreciation. In 2002 he received from the Dalhousie Undergraduate Physics Society the first Langstroth Memorial Award, which recognizes an instructor of physics who shows the greatest love of teaching and the strongest desire to assist students in all matters. In addition, Masa's interests in philosophy (including Kant) led him to teach Einstein's theories to students at the University of King's College in Halifax. As a self-taught viola (and violin) player, Masa found great joy in playing in orchestras, including the Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra and Dalhousie Music Department Orchestra. He also cherished playing string quartets and other chamber music, most recently as a member of the Mostly Telemann Ensemble since 1996 and the Edward Street Quartet since 1997 in Halifax. Deeply fond of the German language, Masa studied it steadily throughout his life, reading original writings of great composers including Brahms. He and his wife took great pleasure in following the steps of these composers in Austria, Germany and other countries in Europe. Masa was predeceased by his father Masataka SENBA. Masa is lovingly remembered by his wife Kazue SEMBA in Halifax and his mother Kazuko SENBA, brothers Tamio and Hideo and other family members in Tokyo. According to Masa's wish, there will be no funeral, but a get-together to remember him will be scheduled at a later time in Halifax. The family would like to thank the staff of the QEII Halifax Health Sciences Centre, particularly the Palliative Care Unit, and Victorian Order of Nurses nurses for their care, concern and kind support for Masa and the family during his illness.

RILEY, Helena Day " Polly" (née HARRIS) (1923-2007)
Polly died peacefully at Grace Hospice on Tuesday, October 9, 2007 after a heroic struggle with pulmonary disease. Polly is survived by her devoted husband of 62 years Derek; three children and their families: Jeannie, her husband Rod SENFT, their children Riley, Derek and Lauren; Derek, his wife Anne POULSON, their children Andrew and Kate; Leslie, her husband Buzz GRANT and their children Jean, Tom, Ian, and Christopher. She was predeceased by her daughter Debby, her parents Alan and Helena HARRIS, sisters Nancy and Janet, and her brother Tom. Polly was born in Buffalo, New York on December 8, 1923 and moved to Winnipeg with her parents in 1938. She attended Riverbend School and the University of Manitoba, graduating with an Interior Decorating Diploma from the School of Architecture in 1944. Her great beauty, athleticism and endearing personality made her one of the most popular girls on campus. She was chosen Winter Carnival Queen in 1942, and was at one time University of Manitoba Ladies Tennis Champion and Ladies Golf Champion. Polly and Derek were married during World War 2 while he was home on leave from the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm and she provided financial support to him during the early years following the war by obtaining outside employment while he was studying to become a Chartered Accountant. Polly devoted her life to her family, her Friends, and her community. Her volunteer involvement included the Junior League of Winnipeg, the White Cross Guild of the Winnipeg General Hospital, Middlechurch Home of Winnipeg, and she was always a willing canvasser for a host of deserving charitable institutions. Her family was her pride and joy. Many happy summers were spent at Lake of the Woods from the time her children were babies until adulthood, and many a ski trip was taken in the family station wagon to the Canadian Rockies and to Colorado. Polly loved the world of sport, particularly golf, badminton, and tennis. She was a member of the St. Charles Country Club, Winnipeg Winter Club and Kinsman Re-Fit Centre. In more recent years she has been immensely proud of her nine grandchildren - all of them bright, healthy, and handsome, and they in turn have been as devoted to their 'Gammie' as she has been to them. A great lady of the highest moral character with a very positive outlook, a keen sense of humor, and an unfailing concern for needs and feelings of others, 'Miss Polly' will be fondly remembered and sorely missed by all who knew and loved her. Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of her life will be held at St. George's Anglican Church (Crescentwood), 168 Wilton Street, on Saturday, October 13, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. Flowers are greatly declined. If Friends so wish donations in Polly's memory may be made to the St. George's Anglican Church Memorial Fund, 168 Wilton Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3M 3C3, or to a charity of their choice.
