With great sadness the family announces the passing of Douglas Ernest TOUGH on Sunday December 30, 2007 at the Ian Anderson House, Oakville, Ontario in his 89th year.

Brother-in-law to Dorothy MARTYN of Mississauga and Uncle to Jennifer and John.
Born in Montréal to Ernest and Lucy Davis TOUGH he moved to Toronto where he was captain of his football team at Vaughan Road Collegiate and also played for the University of Toronto where he graduated in Metallurgical Engineering in 4T4.
He held executive positions with Westinghouse Canada in Defense Apparatus, the Motor Division, and laterally the Atomic Power Division in Port Hope. He served as joint chair of the American and Canadian Nuclear Power Associations in 1968.
A fine athlete he enjoyed football, hiking, scuba-diving, skiing and golf at the Oakville Golf Club, badminton and tennis at the Oakville Club; Doug was also an avid swimmer at his beloved Balsam Lake and in their condo pool in Florida. Dad first took up tennis in his mid-forties at Long Point and enjoyed the sport so much he formed a committee and funded the construction of a new second court in the centre lands. His enthusiasm for the sport and initiative led to the existence of two excellent courts enjoyed by the cottagers extensively. The Association in his honour have named the annual Cup and Saucer mixed doubles championship the "Tough Trophy".
Upon his retirement he and Betty enjoyed many years of travel, to Europe, China, Russia, Indonesia and many cruises in the Caribbean, barge trips along the canals of France were a highlight.
His special delights included reading in his solarium on Spruce Street, his residence for sixty years, listening to classical music in the sunroom of his cottage on Long Point, Balsam Lake and discussing philosophy with his many grandchildren during family dinners and parties.
Border Collies, Raleigh, Collette, and Bailey were a big part of his life as was his interest in painting where many of his family have treasured possessions of his talent. Many of Doug's Friends have tokens of his artistic ability, sketches and cards etched on birch bark were his forté. For over 20 years Dad encouraged and organized family parties at Long Point, memorable events that will always be remembered and cherished by all of us. His family was his greatest dedication and our love and respect will be his finest achievement.
Our special thanks to Doctor Ken Collett, for his care and support to Doug and the family, he is truly a credit to his profession. We also want to thank the many compassionate caregivers at the Ian Anderson house for their dedication and commitment in making Doug comfortable and safe during his stay at their Hospice.

Though they be mad and dead as nails,
Heads of the characters hammer through daisies
Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,
And death shall have no dominion.

Backbone of Saint Michael's Choir School groomed 'young gentlemen'
For more than 60 years, 'the guardian of the school's character' served in many capacities but mostly she taught the students liturgical music and religion, as well as their ABCs
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Kathleen (Kay) MANN could have easily become a Roman Catholic nun, but chose instead to teach. The decision proved almost moot; she viewed her job as a religious calling. Besides, teaching was no mere whim - she did it for an astonishing 65 years at the same school.
"My work is equivalent to that of an apostolate," she reflected in 1987. "It gives me great joy. I love my work and my faith."
Ms. MANN combined those as can few who do not take religious vows. She was a fixture at Toronto's famed Saint Michael's Choir School as a firm but much-loved teacher, administrator and conductor, and maintained a spotless attendance record since the school's founding in 1937 - missing only one day, when she fractured her elbow playing softball, her other passion.
Over six decades, thousands of boys learned liturgical music and religion, as well as their ABCs, from Ms. MANN, who served the school in virtually every capacity and taught every one of its administrative and choir directors.
"I was her boss for 24 years, but she was always my teacher," remembered Harry HODSON, a pupil of Ms. MANN's in the early 1950s who went on to become the school's principal and director. "She was a guardian of the school's character."
Proper and punctilious, with a straight back and earnest smile, Ms. MANN (Miss MANN to her students) was a gentle and inspiring instructor, and kept her boys on the straight and narrow. "She was not a softie by any means," Mr. HODSON said. "She wanted the very best from her boys but was probably one of the fairest people you'll ever come across. She wanted to raise young gentlemen and, along the way, turn them into singers."
Several of her choirboys went on to find fame in singing, among them Michael Burgess, operatic tenor Michael Schade, jazz crooner Matt Dusk, members of the Crew-Cuts and Four Lads, and Kevin Hearn of Barenaked Ladies.
"She didn't joke around a lot. She was pretty serious and dedicated and made us work hard," recalled Mr. Hearn, a student from Grades 3 to 11. "When I look at my self-discipline skills, she's certainly the person who had a major influence on helping them develop. She was a beautiful person."
Mr. Hearn, who still does the vocal exercises he learned from Ms. MANN, went to visit his old teacher a few years ago. "She asked how I was doing and what I was doing. I said I was in a band. She asked what it was called. When I told her, she just sort of shook her head, looked at me and said," - and here he lowers his voice for effect - " 'Oh, Kevin …' "
Mr. Dusk, with three jazz CDs under his belt, remembers Ms. MANN as "a kind of second mother to us. She taught us that singing is praying twice, that music can be fun but spiritual."
For years, she was equally dedicated to softball, and even turned down a professional contract. "I thought my teaching was more important," she told the Toronto Star in 1987. "Playing ball would have only lasted a few years."
Born into a working-class family in Toronto, Ms. MANN displayed her mettle and sense of fair play early, once challenging a neighbourhood tough to "Take off your glasses and fight."
She learned to play baseball in the schoolyard at age 12, recalled her sister, Doris McGRATH. "In those days, there wasn't much to do but go to the school playground."
She entered a local girls' league, developed a wicked pitching arm and hot bat, and never looked back. Newspaper reports of the day described her as "a sterling pitcher… speed-ball hurler&hellip one of the best."
She played for 23 years, starting at age 13 with the Nationals, going on to the Toronto Ladies, followed by corporate teams such as Peoples Credit Jewellers, Simpsons and Clayton's. She guest pitched for several world tournaments in Detroit and was offered a contract to play in the women's big leagues in Chicago. She declined.
The softball-and-music combination led to decades of "perfect-pitch" puns.
Meantime, Toronto's Cathedral Schola Cantorum, founded in 1926 to train boys for Saint Michael's Cathedral's choir, added elementary grades in 1937 and was rechristened Saint Michael's Choir School. A 19-year-old Ms. MANN began as an assistant to founder Monsignor John Edward RONAN. She is remembered as the last of the school's co-founders.
Armed with a teaching certificate from the Toronto Normal School, she started instructing traditional academic subjects, as well as Gregorian chant, sight singing, choral music and voice. The life of a chorister was hard, Mr. HODSON recalled. It started in Grade 3, went to Grade 13, "and for nine of those, from Grade 5 on, you were singing every Sunday of the school year at the cathedral."
Although stern, Ms. MANN had a way of easing tension. She would hold up small cards facing the choir that said, "No smoking," or "chicken lips." Darren Dais, a former student and now a Dominican priest, recalled that she installed two rear-view mirrors on her piano, which faced away from the class, to keep an eye on trouble-makers. The jingle of the huge ring of keys she carried alerted the more rambunctious singers to settle down before her arrival.
Her interest in Gregorian chant led to additional studies in New York, the Catholic University of America in Washington, and Boys Town in Nebraska. She also held a Bachelor of Sacred Music degree from the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome, through an affiliation with the choir school.
She was awarded two papal medals, the Bene Merenti in 1964, and the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice ("For Church and Pope") in 1987, on the school's 50th anniversary. She was inducted into the Order of Ontario in 1997.
Ms. MANN was at the school seven days a week, usually arriving straight from 7: 30 a.m. mass at the cathedral next door. Weekends were spent on paperwork. For a time, she pinch-hit as the secretary at night. She taught at the summer school until the mid-1960s. And she taught singing to nurses at Saint Michael's Hospital and the Catholic Youth Organization's glee club.
Despite plenty of opportunities, she never married. Her students were "her boys" and she unabashedly mothered them. "Children nowadays need somebody to be firm, consistent and loving," she told the Star.
From 1967 until her first "retirement" in 1984, Ms. MANN was the school's vice-principal. In 1984, the school persuaded the archdiocese of Toronto to retain her as an "adviser in sacred music," a position she held for almost 15 years. And from 1985 on, she conducted the elementary and junior boys' choirs. She was 85 when she finally stopped working.
After slipping into a deep sleep on her final day of life, she waved her hands in the air for a few minutes. At first puzzled, her family realized that she was conducting. Then she crossed herself, folded her hands on her chest, and died.
At her packed funeral service, several men approached the family to say, "Kay is the reason I'm a gentleman."
Kathleen Mary MANN was born in Toronto on August 31, 1919. She died of cancer in Toronto on December 8, 2007. She was 88. She was predeceased by her brothers Leo and Raymond KILLORAN. She leaves her sister, Doris McGRATH.

REDMOND, Wendie Elizabeth
Daughter, wife, mother, human rights activist, mentor. Born April 7, 1941, in Hamilton. Died September 27 in Saint Thomas, Ontario, of cancer, aged 66.
By Holly KRAMER, Page L6
Wendie was born to Rilla STIPE and Norman PARTINGTON. But her parents separated before she was born, and she was adopted at birth by Doctor J.K. McGREGOR and his wife, Trudy.
After Doctor McGREGOR's sudden death, when Wendie was still too young to understand adoption, Trudy remarried and Wendie was adopted a second time, by Trudy's new husband, T.J. BELL.
Wendie BELL graduated from Havergal College in Toronto. Her manner, cadence and command of language bespoke her private-school upbringing, but Wendie also had the "common touch." She commanded respect in a not-so-common way - by showing it - particularly during the many committee hearings of the Ontario legislature in which she spoke eloquently in support of what she considered the inalienable human rights of the adopted.
Wendie didn't suffer fools gladly ("Let's be kind, he's stupid," she'd say of opponents in private). She could curse in the nicest possible way, sparingly and only when appropriate, and was intolerant only of intolerance. And dirt.
It may have been the stigma attached to so-called "illegitimacy" and adoption for her generation that made her the housekeeper she was - no speck of dust was safe from her - but it was surely this experience that made her a pioneer in Canada's adoption-disclosure reform movement.
Wendie helped thousands of adult adoptees discover their roots following her own successful search and reunion. Her book, Once Removed: Voices from Inside the Adoption Triangle, is still on recommended-reading lists 25 years after its publication.
As founder and co-founder of several chapters of the national non-profit organization Parent Finders, and later, Adoption Roots and Rights, Wendie left an indelible influence on many lives.
Many of us hold dear our memories of sitting at her kitchen table enjoying her offerings of homemade "sun tea" and delicious food.
Wendie had a quick, biting wit, and found humour in the most unlikely places. Her stories usually ended with her trademark phrase: "… right, Buddy?" Wendie and her sweetheart, Henry (Bud) REDMOND had a rich, loving relationship. Sadly, their only child, Stephen, died accidentally in 1983.
Just days before her death, Ontario's new disclosure law, for which she fought so long, came into force, and a mere 48 hours later was overruled by the Ontario Superior Court.
But as Wendie so often reminded us, "adoptees are no strangers to loss."
Holly KRAMER is Wendie's friend.
