WENHARDT, Helen Jean (née ODDIE)
Jean WENHARDT, was born November 11, 1914 and passed away December 25, 2007 in Victoria, British Columbia. With joy we celebrate the life of Jean and sadly announce her passing, one month past her 93rd birthday. She was the youngest of four children and grew up on a farm at Milestone in southern Saskatchewan. In 1932, she completed Grade 12 and worked diligently at various jobs for six years to finance her university education. Jean graduated from the College of Home Economics at the University of Saskatchewan in 1941 and completed her dietetic internship at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, British Columbia in 1942. She worked for the Junior Red Cross in Saskatchewan for the remainder of the war years, and was awarded a MBE (Member of the British Empire) for her efforts. She went on to complete an M.A. in Public Health at the University of Michigan and returned to Saskatchewan as the first provincial nutritionist, a post she held for several years. Jean married Arthur WENHARDT in 1951 and their children Lorna, Wesley and Murray were all born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. The family relocated to Saskatoon in 1961. She was predeceased by her husband Arthur in 1988 and Jean moved to Victoria in 2003. Jean's connections to people were vital and her relationships dear. Her first love was family and Friends who brought great joy throughout her long and energetic life. Jean had many interests: gardening, camping, travelling the world, genealogy, promoting nutrition, language and lifelong learning. Left to carry on her spirit are her three children: Lorna (Gibson) Victoria, Wesley (Paula) Vancouver, and Murray (Venice) Toronto and her five adored grandchildren: Matthew PIERCE of Brisbane, Australia, Daniel PIERCE (Alison BAILLIE) of Vancouver, Robin PIERCE (David SPICER) of Auch, France, and Ella Jean and Brynn Helena WENHARDT of Toronto. A memorial service will be held in Saskatoon in July 2008. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice that best represents your memory of Jean.

SHULTIS, Doctor William Kenneth (1915-2007)
Dr. William Kenneth SHULTIS died suddenly of a heart attack on Friday, June 1, 2007 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada at the age of 92 years. He was born on March 24, 1915 in Port Colborne, Ontario to Doctor John and Mary Lavina Dawn SHULTIS. He was the youngest of four children. His brothers, John and Everett, and sister Vera all have predeceased him. After graduating from Port Colborne High School in 1932, he enrolled at McMaster University where he excelled at tennis and hockey. In 1933 he enrolled in Dentistry at the University of Toronto. During the summers of his University years he was a popular counsellor at Camp Ahmek on Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park, where he inspired in his young campers a great love of the outdoors during his many extended canoe trips. Upon graduation, Doctor SHULTIS practiced General Dentistry in Toronto from 1938 to 1942. In 1942 he joined the Royal Canadian Dental Corps and served his country for two years in the Air force and one year each in the Navy and Army. Upon discharge in 1946, Doctor SHULTIS took postgraduate training in Orthodontics at the University of Toronto, graduating in 1947. He then started, in Toronto, a private Orthodontics practice which he ran until his retirement in early 1988. He developed several novel techniques in Orthodontia, which he taught as an associate of Orthodontics in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto from 1947-57. He also served in 1953 as chair of the Orthodontics section of the Canadian Dental Association, and in 1958 as chair of the Orthodontics Study Club. He was a long term member of the Granite Club in Toronto, and later when he moved to Calgary in 1991 he was a member of the Calgary Golf and Country Club. In 1940 Doctor SHULTIS was married to the former Dahlia Roberta AINLAY in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Ken was predeceased by his wife Dahlia in 1979. He later married the former Jean Margaret VANSTONE (McCORMICK) in 1980 in Galt, Ontario. Jean predeceased Ken in 2005. Doctor SHULTIS is survived by two children from his first marriage: Doctor John Kenneth (Susan) SHULTIS of Manhattan, Kansas, and their daughters Kate (Ed) WENNINGER and Carrie (Nate) REITZ and granddaughters Abby, Anna, Cara, and Millie; and Dahlia Sue (Jack) WOOD of Calgary. From his second marriage, Ken is survived by Jean's three children: Barbara Elizabeth (Jim) BRIGNALL of Calgary, and sons Chris (Alisha) BRIGNALL and Eric BRIGNALL and grand_son Keenan; Helen Margaret (Bruce) MURRAY of St. Catharines, and daughters Chandra and Jillian and Frederick Walter (Patty) VANSTONE of Vancouver and daughters Sheila and Laurie. Doctor SHULTIS will be remembered as a very kind and generous person, always of good humour, and with concern for others. He never met a stranger, making Friends with his congeniality and his signature butterscotch candy. His children remember the skating years at the Granite Club, and the wonderful canoe trips with him in Algonquin Park; his grandchildren treasure the stories he told; and his great-grandchildren remember his extraordinary whistling. A private family gathering will be held in Calgary. A Private Family Graveside Service will be held at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto on Thursday, June 21, 2007. Forward condolences through Arrangements in care of McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes

TAILOR/TAYLOR, Mary Patricia (née BRADY)
It is with great sadness that the Taylor family announce that Mary Patricia (Pat) TAILOR/TAYLOR née BRADY, family matriarch, devoted wife, dearly loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully in her 95th year surrounded by her family at Mount Sinai Hospital on July 29, 2007. Pat was born in Campbellford, Ontario, May 20, 1913, and was the only daughter of Alphonsus and Alice BRADY. She was predeceased in 1976, by her loving husband of 41 years, John Joseph TAILOR/TAYLOR and will be fondly remembered and dearly missed by her children, Grant (Charlotte), Ann DE JONG, Paul, Frances WENTGES, Sheilagh, Philip, Stephen, Vicki and Peter (Michelle), by her brother Charles (Gerry) and all the Brady clan. She leaves a legacy of 24 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren, all of whom were blessed with her affection, grace and approachable nature. She was predeceased in 2006, by her sons-in-law Cornelis (Kees) WENTGES and Egbert (Bert) DE JONG. Vibrant and candid, Pat was cherished for her thoughtful and generous spirit, her wisdom and natural elegance. Without losing touch with her strong faith, Irish roots and respect for tradition, she embraced modern day life, having a strong connection with those far younger than herself. A flapper in the 20's, a stylish young bride in the 30's, she devoted herself entirely to family, spending cherished summers with them on Lake Joseph. Pat will always be remembered for her ease as a gracious hostess in Hamilton, Montreal, Toronto and Naples. The family is enormously appreciative to all the staff at The Balmoral Club, where Pat had been a resident these past 10 years. We wish to gratefully acknowledge the compassion and kindness of her care-givers, Esther, Nellie and Gillian. A funeral Mass will be held at Holy Rosary Church at 1: 30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 1, 2007 at 354 St. Clair Avenue West. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy can be made to Lung Cancer Canada in Pat's memory in honour of The Egbert Douwe de Jong Fellowship Fund.
