After a courageous battle with cancer until her peaceful passing in Ottawa hospital on Friday, January 11, 2008. Carol Elizabeth BRADLEY of Pembroke, born in Cobourg on July 19, 1935. Beloved wife of Henry J. BRADLEY, Q.C. Loving mother of David (Nancy PETRICK) BRADLEY, Thunder Bay; Elizabeth (Jim BELASKIE) BRADLEY, Houston, Texas; Matthew (Lisa) BRADLEY, Pembroke; Henry Christopher (Carolyn) BRADLEY, Ottawa; Victoria (fiancé Kip BRADFIELD) BRADLEY, Massey.

Very loving aunt to Jennifer (Charlie) FAULKNER, Chicago; and John (Jennifer) HAYDEN, Whitby. Daughter-in-law of the late Verna J. DAWSON of Thunder Bay. Carol moved to Pembroke in 1957 at which time she continued her teaching career for two years at Victoria Street Public School. The 60's and 70's were focused on raising her children and thereafter working with Henry in his law firm. Carol's impact on life in the community was enormous through her involvement in a myriad of clubs, charitable organizations and endeavours. She will be especially remembered for her long-time involvement in the Pembroke Ski Club, Canadian Club, Alexandra Club and the Women's Auxiliary of the First Presbyterian Church. Carol served the people of Ontario during her tenure on the Ontario Parks Council with pride and vigour where she travelled the province at large. Those who knew Carol know that she enjoyed life to the fullest and was grateful for her ability to remain active until overtaken by illness.

Carol loved the outdoors and found peace and great satisfaction working in her garden at her home on Supple Street. Until now, Carol continued to be active with Henry on the ski hill, on the tennis court, on the beaches of Mexico, Florida and Mont Ste. Marie, at the horse races in Saratoga and Florida, at the National Arts Centre and on the dance floor. Well known for her infectious laugh and love of a good party, Carol was always happiest when she had the opportunity to host family and Friends in her home.

MacPHERSON, Bruce Edward, M.D.
Born in Toronto on September 8, 1920 to Edna MITCHELL and Arnold William MacPHERSON, Bruce died peacefully on January 10, 2008 in the Almonte General Hospital. He is survived by his wife Pauline, his children Michael (Jean,) Sandra (John MERTENS,) Elizabeth (Lars DANIELSSON,) Arnold (Karin,) grandchildren Andrew (Beth,) Matthew (Fiona), Dan, Eric, Henry, Robert, Louisa, and great-grandchild Emily. He is survived also by his four sisters, Joan CRAWFORD, Jean HILL, Mary FLEMING/FLEMMING and Ada MORRIS, and their families. He will be missed by Aunt Pauline's kin, Annalee, Ed and Emma LADOUCEUR, Lisa, Bill, Kelly and Katie RICHARDSON, and Pat and Ken BELBECK and family. Bruce grew up in Saint Thomas Ontario where he met and later married Mary Pauline RICHARDSON. Like his father, Bruce took his medical degree at the University of Toronto, graduating in 1950. He practiced for many years as a family physician in Weston, Ontario and at the Humber Memorial Hospital, and also served as physician for Orenda Engines and at the United Cooperatives of Ontario. He retired in 2000 at age eighty. Bruce served overseas flying Spitfires with Royal Canadian Air Force 412 Squadron first in Britain and later in Europe after D-Day. He flew with Royal Air Force 93 Squadron in North Africa. In 1942 he survived a voyage to Murmansk (PQ 16) as a Hurricat pilot with Merchant Ship Fighter Unit on the Camship Empire Lawrence, and was mentioned in dispatches when she was sunk as a result of enemy action. Bruce was a Prisoner of War for the last few months of the war. He truly appreciated the lifelong Friends he made from his adventures. Bruce demonstrated exceptional grace during his final years, living with Parkinson's. He was a gentleman, genuinely interested in people, forever active and curious about the world, humble about himself, and in Pauline's words, "always so much fun". We shall all miss him dearly. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Bruce to the Parkinson Society Canada, Canadian National Institute for the Blind, Arthritis Society Canada, or the Almonte General Hospital.

BELDAM, Murray
The family are saddened to report the passing of Murray BELDAM on June 6th, 2008, at the age of 98, after a valiant struggle with Alzheimer's disease. A quiet and unassuming man, Murray was born and raised in Scarborough Village. The adored and only child of Charlie and Edna BELDAM. He grew up in a close family setting, surrounded by loving aunts and uncles, at the corner of Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue in a large country home, surrounded by tall maples. Murray was an accomplished track and field athlete, holding a cigar box full of medals for high hurdles while attending the University of Toronto and the Ontario Agricultural College, from which he graduated as a bacteriologist in 1934. He was a third-generation Torontonian and a proud Canadian. Murray served his country as a Sergeant in the Medical Corps performing cold climate research from 1939 to 1945 and retired in 1970 from the Food and Drug Division of the Federal government. He and Billie, his loving wife of 65 years, enjoyed an active retirement, spending their winters in Florida and summers at their cottage in Muskoka. Murray and Billie enjoyed an exceptionally long life together, managing to live together in the family home up until a few weeks ago, when the Alzheimer's disease became a crushing burden to Billie and their wonderful nurse, Grace. How many couples manage to live together in their family home to their late 90's and are able to drive themselves for dinner together at local restaurants? Clearly, he had an enviable life. Murray is survived by Billie (Lillian HAYWOOD of Toronto,) his son David Blair, two grandchildren, Jo-Anne GRISTINA of Columbus, Georgia, and David Charles of Toronto, and three great-grandchildren, Lily, Annabelle and this spring, little Max GRISTINA, all of Columbus, Georgia. A funeral service will be held in the chapel of Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Thursday, June 12th at 3: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to UNICEF Canada, 2200 Yonge Street, Suite 1100, Toronto, Ontario M4S 2C6 or the Canadian Cancer Society, 1639 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario M4T 2W6.

Survived by sister Beatrice GENDRON, 93, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. Rose spent most of her life in Saskatchewan and enjoyed such outdoor activities as gardening, picking wild berries, fishing, boating and swimming. The long Saskatchewan winters turned her into an avid bridge player and she became a Life Master. Another favourite pastime was listening to music and she loved any music that had a beat. After moving to Toronto, she spent many happy hours attending local concerts and musical shows, always perfectly turned out with hat and gloves. A feisty, independent senior, she eventually succumbed to the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. The family wishes to express a very special thanks for their loving care, companionship and support, to her personal support worker, Neverlyn JAMES, and the other devoted members of her 24/7 team, Marialyn AGUILLON and Juvy BALQUIN.

STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Frances Alma (née CARSON)
Frances Alma STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, beloved wife of the late Neil STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2008 at Extendicare Halton Hills, in her 99th year. Frances was born on December 6, 1909 to Walter and Minnie (MacLEOD) CARSON on the family homestead just outside of Dundalk on the Backline, Proton. On September 13, 1930 she was married to Neil Glenford STEWARD/STEWART/STUART of Shrigley.
Neil and Frances lived on the Stewart family farm from the time of their marriage until 1944, at which time they purchased the nearby farm of Robert BAILEY where they remained until 1969 when they moved to Dundalk in retirement. Neil and Frances worked side-by-side and were well respected farmers in the area.
During that period, Frances and Neil were active participants in the Agricultural Society in Dundalk and together they received an award that acknowledged their contribution. In 2000 Frances received a 30 year certificate for her volunteer service in the community.
Frances was also an active member of the Maple Valley Women's Missionary Society and in 1969 she received a life time achievement certificate and pin. Members of the Women's Missionary Society remained in contact with Frances throughout the remainder of her life.
Frances loved Dundalk and was a well-known and well-loved contributor to the people of the town. Her delicious cooking and her generous nature made it common place for those who were unwell to receive a full chicken dinner for the family or her very delicious date squares or pie.
Frances and Neil had celebrated their sixty-sixth wedding anniversary just prior to Neil's passing, December 31, 1996.
Frances is survived by grand_son, Donald BERRY of Edmonton and Linda BERRY of Georgetown, by great-grandchildren, Dawn and Andrew of Edmonton and by Melissa, Rhonda, Janice and Nadine, all of Alberta, and by a number of great-great-grandchildren also living in Alberta. Frances was predeceased by daughter, Helen DELORES in 1987 and by grand_son, Neil BERRY and brothers Ivan and William CARSON and sisters-in-law Edna and Mary CARSON.
In May 2003 after a period of ill health, Frances moved to Extendicare in Georgetown, where she became a much loved resident and she received constant care and loving attention of nursing/care-giving staff. Upon arrival she was reconnected with her childhood nickname of 'Frankie'. Staff spoke often of her great character and nature and of her desire to continue to do things for herself, which she continued to do until the final week of her life. While Frances moved to Extendicare almost five years ago, her heart remained solidly in Dundalk and she always enjoyed her calls and visits from family and Friends who offered some 'news' of her beloved town.
The funeral was held on January 29, 2008 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk. Long-time friend, Rev. Willis HUNKING was the officiating minister and was capability assisted by his brother, Clarence's granddaughter, Denise; who also beautifully sang three favorite hymns. Acting pallbearers were Jack, Bill and Brad CARSON, Rick MARCH, Joe CLEARY and Donald BELL. Honorary pallbearers included Therese Haverty CLEARY, June and Lesley CARSON, Leaman HUNKING, Cathy MARCH, and Mary EDWARDS, and the Flowerbearer was Calvin LYLE- ASHBY.
Spring internment will be in Badjeros Cemetery.

MOORE, Mary Alexandra " Alma" (BELL)
(June 8, 1915-April 8, 2008)
Peacefully at Meadow Park Nursing Home, London, Ontario on Tuesday, April 8, 2008, Mary Alexandra "Alma" (BELL) MOORE of London in her 93rd year. Predeceased by her husband William C. MOORE and her son Peter Charles. She was the most loving and giving person - always thinking of others before herself. She had a beautiful twinkle in her eye and the most infectious giggle. As the new women in her only son's life, I was quite nervous in meeting her for the first time, but after a few seconds she made me feel so welcomed and loved, you couldn't help but love her back. She had this effect on every one she knew, from her Friends to where she lived to those in her parish of Wellington Street United Church. She also worked as a ward clerk at Victoria Hospital for many years, and I know that with her loving and caring ways, she was where she was supposed to be. Alma was a cherished aunt to many nieces and nephews (Sharon, Ross, Marlene, and others I am sure I have forgotten to mention, but know that she loved you all) and their children who I know will miss her terribly. In her sweet way she was "Aunt Alma" to everyone she met and embraced them all in her circle of love, affection and laughter. She also loved to spend time with her dear friend Jeanne and her daughter Sandra and husband John and her son Randy and his wife Mariann at the cottage in Grand Bend. Oh the fun times we had over the years! Memories I will always cherish. Much love and appreciation go out to Judy who has always been there for me to assist with Alma's care when I couldn't be in London. Judy and her husband Tom (who has been waiting in the wings with Alma's son to welcome her home to be with God), will always hold a special place in my heart. The world has lost a true angel. Rest well Alma, soar through the skies and sparkle brightly like the stars above. I knew the best mother-in-law there was! You were truly one of a kind and I thank God you sent me your beautiful son to be my husband for 17 years. I will miss you both always. Cremation has taken place. Friends and family will be received at the A. Millard George Funeral Home, 60 Ridout Street South, London one hour prior to the memorial service being conducted in the chapel on Saturday, April 12th at 10: 30 a.m. with interment following in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, London. Friends and family who wish may make donations to the Alzheimer Society, 555 Southdale Road East, London, Ontario N6E 1A2 or the charity of your choice. On line condolences accepted at www.amgfh.com

Hundreds of Friends and family hoisted a glass to honour Earl BELL Friday, the day of his funeral, at the St. Regis Tavern he owned.
One of Ontario's first lottery winners, BELL used his $100,000 prize to buy the London bar, a fixture on Dundas Street for 27 years.
"He called all the girls who worked here Earl's pearls," said tavern employee Sheree RUDNICKI.
BELL died May 20 after a battle with cancer. He was 66.
"Earl was a straight shooter who would do anything for anybody," said Ken McVITTIE, a tavern regular.
Born on a farm near Hensall, BELL grew up milking cows. A practical joker, he would squirt milk or toss mice at his sister. BELL moved to Toronto for a short time before settling in London.
"When we walked down Yonge Street, we'd never wait in line for any establishment," recalled Ron MASON, BELL's brother-in-law and athletic director at Michigan State University. "Everyone knew Earl."
A lottery ticket purchase in the early 1980s altered the course of BELL's life.
"The lottery win really changed Earl because it enabled him to do the thing he loved the most," said MASON. " Earl couldn't have been a better bar owner. He was born for it."
The St. Regis is a small spot catering to a close-knit community and known for Saturday jam nights.
"The place is an institution," said RUDNICKI. " Earl's rules still go. They were: Respect the staff; respect him and respect the business."
Remembered for his generous spirit, BELL often took in regulars and gave them a place to stay in the hotel. BELL sponsored baseball, softball and basketball teams.
"He had a big heart, everybody loved him," said wife Shani, who met BELL when she played on a St. Regis Tavern softball team. "I miss him."
The two were married in Barbados in 2002. A father, stepfather and grandfather, BELL loved sports, fishing and horse races.
"He had an unbelievable knack for picking horses and football teams," said MASON.
Perhaps BELL's most defining quality was his flair for conversation. He loved to read newspapers and discuss current events.
"Earl was a people person and the life of the party," said MASON. "No matter where he went, people surrounded him."

ZABOROWSKI, Eugene
Died peacefully, January 18th, 2008, in his 94th year, after a brief illness at Guelph General Hospital. Born January 6th, 1915, in Tuapsc, Russia, on the Black Sea, Eugene was raised and educated in Poland. He served as a 2nd Leftenant in the Polish Army - Artillery, was captured by the Russians in 1939 and survived the Soviet Gulag labour camps to join the Allied Forces where he trained as an Royal Air Force navigator. In 1950, he immigrated to Canada and settled with his wife Janina, in Oakville, Ontario. He worked for Sun Life Insurance, Dufferin Construction and St. Lawrence Cement until his retirement. His zest for life was evident in the great pleasure he found in the art and craft of every day living. He built his own homes (Campbellville and Erin), raised a menagerie of animals, and grew a thriving garden of fruits and vegetables, all destined for the table. His repertoire also included making his own sausage, smoking bacon, baking his own rye bread, pickling mushrooms, fishing, and telling riveting stories of his war years. He loved languages, tutoring his family and Friends, reciting Polish poetry and practising Russian, until his death. He also loved a good joke, a good drink, a challenging game of bridge, and a rousing discussion with his best friend Ludck Kraszewski, in equal measure. His tender devotion in caring for his wife, Janina, for 15 years after her major stroke, continues to be an inspiration to all of us.
Eugene was predeceased by his wife Janina (Dr. ZABOROWSKA 2000) he is lovingly remembered by his daughter Eva ROSS (John,) son Mark (Kathleen JONATHAN,) and grandchildren Jason ROSS (Heather SMITH,) Jenna VEENSTRA (Dave) and Amanda BELL (Josh,) ten lively great-grandchildren - Gage, Nolan, Jett, Preston and Jaxxon ROSS and Danielle, Jacob, Joanna, Sarah and Rebecca VEENSTRA.

BRANDT, Robert " Bob" Wardell
Dearest Bob, We have been so lucky to know you - a great gentleman who cared for others in so many ways. You were a straight for ward genuine good guy, having a positive impact on many lives with an unassuming graciousness, an indomitable spirit but with a bit of mischief now and again. Great respect was earned by you with your intelligence, integrity, common sense and fairness to all. With your quick wit and famous Bob Brandt humour (just ask the staff) you could brighten up a discussion. You loved problem solving from puzzles to broken equipment and management issues. The challenges captivated you. Classmates from Ontario Veterinarian College '70, Guelph named you their Class President and we have been fortunate to rendezvous every 5th year to renew those Friendships with gusto. You enjoyed opening new clinics in St. Vital and The Pas, working on Veterinary Boards and church organizations, the camaraderie with the curling team, the eventful and sometimes fateful fishing trips, bonding while hunting at the farm when you had your licence, the sometimes hospital bound but fun ski trips plus exploring and observing nature while hiking and biking far and near and special summers with family and Friends at the lake. Travel was a big part of our life, especially in your semi-retirement as we set out to explore and to meet new and old Friends. Your family was very special to you. You were born to Doctor Marvin and Martha BRANDT (both deceased) in The Pas then moved to Dauphin, Manitoba; studied at the University of Manitoba then Ontario Veterinary College before settling in Winnipeg to work at St. Vital Clinic and then Birchwood Animal Hospital. You had great visions and Birchwood grows again. We will sure miss you with all of that warmth and charm. Wife - Barb; daughter Susan and Dave SIMPSON; son David and Katarina WELSH; sister Lynne and Dave BELL -- Ian, Chris, Peter; brother Doug - Jamie, Kenneth, Adam; Father-in-law - Jack DEGUERRE; sister-in-law and brother-in-law - Sue and Ted DOBIE -- Jeff, Karen. Thanks so much for the very precious memories. Love with Big Hugs and Kisses, Family and Friends. A 'Celebration' of Bob's life will be held on Friday, April 18th, 2008 at The Gates, 6945 Roblin Blvd; family welcoming of guests at 2: 00 p.m., 'Celebration' at 2:30 p.m. Thanks to all the special caregivers in Palliative Care at St. Boniface Hospital, Home Care and Riverview. Donations may be made to Fort Garry United Church Rebuilding Fund, 800 Point Rd., Winnipeg, Manitoba R3T 3L8, a charity of your choice or plant a tree in memory of Bob.

McARTHUR, Alexander Arthur, " Jock," "VE3DJ,"
Died at home in Ancaster on May 6th 2008, in his 92nd year.
Beloved husband of the late Elizabeth Janet, father of Lawrie (Tom) and Julia (Justin), and Grandad of his adored grandchildren, Jane, Alex and Chris, by all of whom he is missed and lovingly remembered.
Jock was fascinated with electronics and his lifelong hobby was amateur radio from age 13 when he got his first amateur radio licence for code, to his later experiments with amateur television. He graduated in Electrical Engineering from the University of Toronto, and was President of his Class of '39.
During the Second World War he served with the Royal Canadian Signals Corps in Italy and the Netherlands, retiring as a major at the end of the war. He was a Life Member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute.
His working life was with Canadian Westinghouse, notably, managing the Turbine and Generator Division, and retiring as Assistant to the President.
Jock's community involvement included serving as Church Warden for Saint_John's Anglican Church in Ancaster, and membership on the Board of Directors of Saint Peter's Hospital, Hamilton, where he was intimately involved in the major building projects undertaken by Saint Peter's during his tenure. With Janet, he volunteered enormous time and effort over many years to the Art Gallery of Hamilton. He headed the building committee of the "new" Art Gallery of Hamilton, now a pillar of cultural life in Hamilton and environs, as well as serving as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors.
He bequeathed to his children and grandchildren enquiring minds, a fascination with science and nature, and a love of life and fun.
Jock was able to have his wish of remaining in his home of 54 years because of the fond and able care of Tammy CARLSON, her family, and Richard BELL. He also benefited from wonderful medical and personal care from Doctor Michael STEPHENSON, the staff at Community Care Access Centre (Hamilton), and many others.
