WEBB, Kenny
In loving memory of Kenny, a dear son and brother, who passed away 6 years ago, January 3rd, 2001.
Lord tell him how much we miss him,
And give him all our love.
Our family gatherings are never the same,
Without your smiling face and your warm embrace.
They say times heals all sorrow,
And helps us to forget.
But time so far has only shown how much,
We miss him yet.
- Loving you always, forgetting you never.
Love Mom, Dad, Donna, Leonard, Krista, Shane, Kevin and Sarah.

She will be missed by her best friend and husband Bill KRANENBURG. Together they shared a great love for their children; Wesley and his wife Jessica of Scotland, Ontario, Nathaniel and his wife Laura of Port Elgin, Jeremy and his wife Katie of Southampton, Zachary of Paisley, and Emily of Paisley. Bill and Debra also received great joy from their three grandchildren; Josiah, Caleb, and Chloe-Anne. Debbie is survived and greatly loved by her parents Roy and Bertha SCOTT of Port Elgin, her sister Darlene MASHINTER and family of Waterloo, and by her brothers Don SCOTT and family of Calgary, Alberta, and Dave SCOTT and family of Wellesley.

During the service, family remembrances were presented by her brother Don SCOTT. Barb JOHNSTON served as pianist and led the music portion of the service. Debbie was born June 16th, 1957 to Roy and Bertha SCOTT, and was raised on a farm in Paisley. She was educated locally, and graduated from the Accounting Program at Georgian College in Owen Sound. Very involved in her church, it was there that she met Bill KRANENBURG, eventually marrying in 1978. Debbie taught Sunday School for many years, and served faithfully as Church Treasurer for 25 years. Aside from farming, together, Bill and Debbie successfully partnered in business when they purchased the Beefway meat packing business in Kincardine in 1997. They then went on to acquire the First Base Restaurant on Port Elgin Beach in 2000, which they quickly established as a family favourite. She faithfully supported her children in all their activities, dreams and aspirations. Debbie enjoyed doing crafts, was an avid garage-saler, loved to shop and collect collectables. She was a wonderful cook who shared her meal creations with her many Friends and family. She will be remembered as a fun-loving, Christian woman with a wonderful sense of humour and a bubbly, contagious laugh. Her family will miss the compassionate, caring and generous nature with which she blessed them everyday. Her zeal for life inspired many people to love their lives to the fullest, to enjoy the small pleasures in life, and to trust God in all things. Interment was made at Paisley Cemetery.

Numerous tips lead to arrest in Ontario killing
Man considered a missing person until two fishermen found his body
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A7
The mysterious disappearance of a man named Jeffrey MASON last year had nearly everyone in a Northern Ontario town talking. The 37-year-old welder's home and car had been found burned and gutted - his loyal dog's remains inside - and, for months, there hadn't been a trace of Mr. MASON anywhere.
But the mystery is no more: The body of Mr. MASON, from Dowling, Ontario, near Sudbury, was discovered in a nearby river last month, and this week an arrest was made in his death.
Two couples fishing on the Vermillion River on June 7, just kilometres from Mr. MASON's home, caught sight of something that had floated up from the 120-foot-deep river.
"Two of the people went out and retrieved what was floating and it was actually Jeffrey," said Sudbury police Staff Sergeant Sheilah WEBER, adding that Mr. MASON was found fully clothed, with a light-coloured cloth wrapped around him. He had died of blunt-force trauma.
Then on Wednesday, Sudbury resident Nicholas Aaron MARTIN, 18, was charged with first-degree murder in Mr. MASON's death. Mr. MARTIN appeared in court yesterday and has been remanded into custody until Tuesday.
Local police initially treated the investigation, which The Globe and Mail reported on in February, as a missing-person case. But with each passing day they were further convinced it was much more than that. His family always maintained that he was murdered, and that the killer burned away the slightest bit of evidence.
Staff Sgt. WEBER said Ontario Provincial Police divers had twice searched the river, once in the days immediately after Mr. MASON's disappearance, and once in the early spring after the temperature had risen, but could never make it deeper than 90 feet.
After the discovery of his body, the case became a homicide investigation.
Four investigators worked on the file full-time. Witnesses: began to come forward, forensic evidence - including a blanket that belonged to Mr. MASON that was found near the river - was analyzed, and tips were followed up, she said.
"Basically, everybody had a piece of the puzzle and now we've been able to put that puzzle together," Staff Sgt. WEBER said.
Police confirmed that at the time of his arrest, Mr. MARTIN was already in jail awaiting a trial for attempted murder in an unrelated incident from last November, when he had allegedly slashed another person's neck with a knife during a house party in the Sudbury area.
Mr. MASON's eldest brother, John, confirmed yesterday that Jeffrey and the accused weren't strangers. "He was known to him, but he wasn't an acquaintance," he said. "I certainly don't believe [his death] was random."
The discovery of Jeffrey's body and the news of an arrest, he said, brings an uncomfortable sense of relief to his tight-knit family - three siblings and a widowed mother.
Mr. MASON had moved back to the family farm in 2003 from Calgary to take care of his mother after his father died of a stroke. He never went a day without getting in touch with her or his siblings.
"It was just so unbelievably surreal. We always felt that something disastrous had happened to him. He could not, because we believed he would not, stay away from us for so long."
Despite the arrest, the elder Mr. MASON says there will never be closure with the family, not even with a conviction, because he never got to say goodbye to his baby brother.

Margaret ATWOOD, Dietitian (1909-2006)
Headstrong woman loved the outdoors and helped inspire her daughter and namesake, Canada's celebrated author and poet
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S7
A dietitian by training, strong-willed and independent by upbringing, the original Margaret ATWOOD raised her children on a diet of thrift, reading aloud and the freedom to explore their natural and intellectual surroundings. By the time she was a grandmother, economy was ingrained as a habit rather than a necessity, but the years had not blunted her sense of adventure.
"Quite some time after the event, I told both my parents that I had tried LSD," her younger daughter, Ruth SIFERD, said recently. "Daddy pursed up his mouth and looked disapproving. Mum leaned forward and said, 'What was it like?' "
Staying with her grandmother when her parents (writers Margaret ATWOOD and Graeme GIBSON) were away was "fantastic," recalled Jess Atwood GIBSON, 30, now a graduate student in art history at Yale University. "My grandmother would allow me to feed her Venus flytrap endless small pieces of ground meat on toothpicks, and she would show me how to tickle its fronds, pretending to be a fly, and give me an account of its digestion."
Every morning before school, Mrs. ATWOOD would sit young Jess on a stool and wind her hair into long, fat curls around her finger with a white comb dipped in a glass of water. "For a seven-year-old, the best grandmother possible was one who could both explain plant digestion and curl hair into ringlets."
Although Margaret ATWOOD has always resisted interpreting her own fiction for readers, she told literary biographer Rosemary Sullivan (The Red Shoes) that her muse was the mother figure. Mothers run the gamut in Ms. ATWOOD's work from holy terrors to benevolent nurturers, but the story that is probably most autobiographical is "Significant Moments in the Life of My Mother" from Bluebeard's Egg.
"I used to think that my mother, in her earlier days, led a life of sustained hilarity and hair-raising adventure," Ms. ATWOOD wrote. "Horses ran away with her, men offered to, she was continually falling out of trees…" It is only later that Ms. ATWOOD realizes that "the stories were just the punctuation" in a life that had "long stretches of uneventful time."
Margaret Dorothy Killam ATWOOD was born in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. The eldest of five children of Harold KILLAM, a country doctor, and his wife Ora Louise WEBSTER, she was socially shy but physically daring. A tomboy, she delighted in walking the barn ridgepole and riding her two cherished horses, Dick and Nell.
She was 17 and sliding down a banister at Normal School in Truro when Carl ATWOOD, a hard-working self-made man who had grown up in the backwoods of South Shore, Nova Scotia, spotted her and immediately fell in love -- or so he said.
As wily as she was headstrong, she got the better of her father after he refused to let her bob her hair in the 1920s. She waited until he had a dentist appointment and made her plea while the drill was whirling. He retorted that she could do anything she wanted as long as she left him alone, and so she went straight to the barber and had her waist-length tresses chopped.
Perhaps that's why her father declined to send her to university on the grounds that she was "frivolous." Instead she taught school, saved money and won a scholarship to Mount Allison University. She graduated in domestic science and became a dietitian and nutritionist.
After a long courtship with Carl ATWOOD -- money was scarce and she was having "too much fun," as she later told her children she finally married her beau in 1935. Besides having a PhD, he was an expert woodsman and the only one of her suitors that her father didn't dismiss as a "jackass." They spent their honeymoon canoeing down the Saint_John River in New Brunswick.
Then they headed for northern Quebec, where Prof. ATWOOD, an entomologist, had a small forest insect research station. Living first in a tent then a cabin, Mrs. ATWOOD raised her first two children, Harold and Margaret (Peggy), without the benefit of running water or electricity -- during prime insect season -- from spring until fall. Prof. ATWOOD pawned his fountain pen to pay the hospital bill when Peggy was born in November, 1939.
The family spent winters in Ottawa, but Mrs. ATWOOD much preferred the bush, where she could swim in the cold northern lakes -- "refreshing, refreshing," she invariably trilled as she strode purposefully into the frigid water. She also loved to grow vegetables, pick blueberries, fish, shoot grouse, sweep the dirt out the door in the morning and be done with housekeeping for the day. "My mother baked her way through the war years," Ms. ATWOOD remembered, "with no-butter, low-sugar recipes, and when we ran out of protein she'd open a can of Spam, mix up some Klim milk powder, or go down to the end of the dock and throw in a line for pickerel."
In 1945 the ATWOODs moved to Sault Ste. Marie, where Prof. ATWOOD set up another insect lab. With this change of venue, the family spent the warmer months of the year at a cabin on the shore of Lake Superior.
Mrs. ATWOOD put her children to work picking berries at a cent a cup, which she preserved for eating in the colder months. Her daughter Peggy still remembers seeing her mother waving a broom and yelling "Scat" to chase away a bear that had trashed the food cache.
The family moved to Toronto in 1946, so that Prof. ATWOOD could begin teaching zoology at the University of Toronto. Their second daughter and third child, Ruth, was born five years later, in 1951. Mrs. ATWOOD was 42, but age wasn't the only factor that differentiated her from most of the other neighbourhood moms. She hated housework and was oblivious to the consumer boom of the 1950s and 1960s.
"She had absolutely zero interest in colours of furniture, curtains, or other 'girl' stuff -- Dad did all that," remembered her younger daughter, Ruth. "As long as things were cleanish and had no holes she was happy." She was attached to "things" for their sentimental value, but otherwise material goods were of little interest. "The Depression mentality of reduce-reuse-recycle came naturally to her and was very useful in the bush and on canoe trips."
Besides raising three children, to whom she read aloud voraciously, Mrs. ATWOOD was committed to Scottish country dancing and ice dancing, an activity she enjoyed until she was 75.
Her last years were mired in ill health, but even when she was blind and bedridden in a nursing home, she never complained. She didn't believe in whining.
Margaret Dorothy Killam ATWOOD was born June 8, 1909, in Kinsman's Corners, Nova Scotia She died at home in Toronto this past Saturday. She was 97. Predeceased by her husband, the zoologist Carl ATWOOD, she leaves her three children, their families and her younger sister, Joyce BARKHOUSE. There will be a memorial service later in the month.

MORGAN, Dorothy Ann Mary (née PHILLIPS)
(February 1, 1909-October 14, 2007)
In the company of her daughter, son and elder granddaughter, Ann (Dolly) MORGAN died peacefully on the evening of October 14, 2007. It was the end of an astonishing life. Born in London, she learned the city by heart, developing a particular affection for 'her' bridge, Westminster, across which she so often crossed from her home in Kennington. She remembered the First World War, growing into adulthood in the vibrant 1920s, and life in the London of Olivier and Toscanini in the 1930s. While teaching school she met Islwyn MORGAN. They married in 1935 and moved to Cardiff, where their children Janet (1937), Richard (1945) and John (1948), were born. In 1958 the family emigrated to Canada. After Islwyn died in 1966, most of the MORGANs moved to British Columbia, and Dolly eventually settled in Vancouver. There she later was fortunate enough to meet and marry Clem PENNEY. Dolly thoroughly enjoyed her new life. Even after Clem's death in 2002, Dolly maintained her own household until an illness required her move to Carlton Gardens in Burnaby, where she spent her last few months very comfortably.
Dolly is survived by her daughter, Janet and son, John, as well as daughters-in-law Bronwen and Jeannine, and former son-in-law Norman WEBSTER. She was predeceased by her elder son Richard (1990) and son-in-law Bob BACON (1998.) In addition, Dolly was deeply fortunate to enjoy grandchildren Julian (Cindy), Chris, Sarah and Sian (Buz), and great-grandchildren Helena, Rhys, Brandon and Dylan.
Dolly's interests ranged widely. She was an addicted (and accomplished) crossword puzzler, avidly attacking the Globe's infamous Saturday puzzles, though even when she attained the right answer, she admitted she could not always fathom the clues. She read voraciously, particularly enjoying mysteries; she also had a lifelong passion for classical music and theatre. She possessed a quick mind, a strong wit, a good sense of humour, a commitment to left-wing politics, a convinced doubt concerning religion and yet an appreciation of its music and ceremony, a belief in the necessity of charity and a dedication to her family.
Living ninety-eight years, Dolly became not only the grand matriarch, but also an institution, in the MORGAN family. She was much loved and we all miss her beyond our ability to say. Nos da, Dolly.

MORGAN, Dorothy Ann Mary (née PHILLIPS)
(February 1, 1909-October 14, 2007)
In the company of her daughter, son and elder granddaughter, Ann (Dolly) MORGAN died peacefully on the evening of October 14, 2007. It was the end of an astonishing life. Born in London, she learned the city by heart, developing a particular affection for 'her' bridge, Westminster, across which she so often crossed from her home in Kennington She remembered the First World War, growing into adulthood in the vibrant 1920s, and life in the London of Olivier and Toscanini in the 1930s. While teaching school she met Islwyn MORGAN. They married in 1935 and moved to Cardiff, where their children Janet (1937), Richard (1945) and John (1948), were born. In 1958 the family emigrated to Canada. After Islwyn died in 1966, most of the MORGANs moved to British Columbia, and Dolly eventually settled in Vancouver. There she later was fortunate enough to meet and marry Clem PENNEY. Dolly thoroughly enjoyed her new life. Even after Clem's death in 2002, Dolly maintained her own household until an illness required her move to Carlton Gardens in Burnaby, where she spent her last few months very comfortably.
Dolly is survived by her daughter, Janet and son, John, as well as daughters-in-law Bronwen and Jeannine, and former son-in-law Norman WEBSTER. She was predeceased by her elder son Richard (1990) and son-in-law Bob BACON (1998.) In addition, Dolly was deeply fortunate to enjoy grandchildren Julian (Cindy), Chris, Sarah and Sian (Buz), and great-grandchildren Helena, Rhys, Brandon and Dylan.
Dolly's interests ranged widely. She was an addicted (and accomplished) crossword puzzler, avidly attacking the Globe's infamous Saturday puzzles, though even when she attained the right answer, she admitted she could not always fathom the clues. She read voraciously, particularly enjoying mysteries; she also had a lifelong passion for classical music and theatre. She possessed a quick mind, a strong wit, a good sense of humour, a commitment to left-wing politics, a convinced doubt concerning religion and yet an appreciation of its music and ceremony, a belief in the necessity of charity and a dedication to her family.
Living ninety-eight years, Dolly became not only the grand matriarch, but also an institution, in the Morgan family. She was much loved and we all miss her beyond our ability to say. Nos da, Dolly.
