McCUTCHEON, Susan
Our beloved Susan passed away on April 10, 2008, at age 69, in London, England, after a recurrence of melanoma. She was surrounded by daughters Susan-Eva and Jessica PORTER, beloved husband Bob BENJAFIELD, and Bob's family. Susan spent the last few months of her life enveloped in the love of her family and many Friends, providing strength and courage to all. Susan was the daughter of the late Eva and Wallace McCUTCHEON of Toronto, and sister of James, Frederick, Douglas and the late Barbara McCUTCHEON. She is survived by three generations of the McCUTCHEON and Porter families in Canada; by step children Richard and Jackie BENJAFIELD and their spouses; and step-grandchildren Samuel, Robin and Rueben BENJAFIELD of Guilford, England. Susan was a teacher by training and spent many years involved in the health care and social services community in Toronto. As one friend noted, she was a tireless spokesperson for the rights of women. Susan was Chairman of Women's College Hospital from 1985 to 1988 and served on the Royal Commission for New Reproductive Technology during the early 1990s. She was actively involved and committed to the Palliative Care Foundation and the Childbirth Education Association, and she also served for a time on the boards of Jessie's Centre and the Toronto Zoo. Susan moved to England permanently in 1994 to be with her husband Bob, living first in Cornwall and then in Wimbledon, where she and Bob created a life full of music, travel, happy companionship, and hospitality. She spent her final years devoting her energy to mentoring members of a spiritual fellowship, which gave her a profound sense of purpose and meaning. Throughout her life she loved others as they loved her, with compassion, kindness, and fidelity. Her greatest legacy was her capacity for abiding Friendship, and thus she will be mourned and missed by many. A memorial service in celebration of Susan's life will be held in Toronto in mid-May, details to be announced.
In lieu of flowers, the family invites Susan's Friends to make anonymous donations to charities of their choice.

JOSELYN always felt compelled to give back to her community
By Joe MATYAS, Thurs., July 24, 2008
Marilyn JOSELYN was the kind of woman who had to be involved when she saw needs she thought she could address, her spouse of 47 years said yesterday.
"She believed very strongly that you had to give something back to the community in areas of your competence," said Roland JOSELYN, a retired history teacher.
His wife died in hospital on Monday at age 68 after a brief, courageous battle with cancer.
"Marilyn lived life to the fullest," her husband said. "She wasn't one to let any moss grow on her."
A nurse and psychotherapist by profession, JOSELYN was also a London board of education trustee for 12 years and an active volunteer with such organizations as Childreach, Youth Opportunities Unlimited and the London Abused Women's Centre.
She was honoured by the Ontario Liberal party this year as its provincial volunteer of the year.
In her case, it was an award for contributions to the party spanning more than 40 years, said Ontario Attorney General Chris Bentley, Liberal member of provincial parliament for London West.
"Marilyn was active in politics for all the right reasons," said Bentley, who's set to speak at JOSELYN's memorial service tomorrow.
She was a person who was a voice for people who didn't have a voice, she advocated for services for the vulnerable and she was a champion for a fair, just society, Bentley said.
"She never hesitated to praise governments of any stripe for improvements they made, but she also reminded everyone of what still needed to be done. She was never satisfied with the status quo. She always wanted us to do better."
JOSELYN had such a profound, positive influence on so many people in so many areas "that it's hard to go anywhere in London without meeting someone who knew Marilyn," Bentley said.
As a school board trustee, JOSELYN was a strong voice for students "who were challenged in some way and needed programs and supports that helped them," said Joyce BENNETT, a current trustee who served on the board with JOSELYN.
She showed concern for special needs children, dropouts and students who were newcomers to Canada, BENNETT added.
"She felt it was very important that everyone felt welcome and included in our schools. She was a good trustee and a good friend."
As a psychiatric nurse at Victoria and University hospitals from 1976 to 1985, and later as a private psychotherapist, JOSELYN developed a great deal of sympathy for women and children traumatized by domestic violence and dysfunctional families, said her husband.
That motivated her to become active in volunteer work on behalf of women and children, he said.
"She was a feminist who supported the equality of women and she worked tirelessly on behalf of abused women," said Megan Walker, executive director of the London Abused Women's Centre.
"She was someone who was always there when you needed her and she worked for the cause with little fanfare."
Said Bentley: "For Marilyn, it was always about the work, never about her. She was a very special person. She will truly be missed."
Visitations are scheduled for 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. today and a memorial service at 4 p.m. tomorrow, all at Westview Funeral Chapel on Wonderland Road.
"It will be a celebration of her life," said her husband.

BOYD, Richard Norman, M.D., F.R.C.S.
(June 5, 1944-March 29, 2008)
It is with overwhelming grief that the family of Doctor Richard BOYD announces his death at age 63 on Saturday, March 29, 2008 after a heart attack and a stroke. Rick took his last breath held lovingly by his family and close Friends Doctor Frank DEMARCO and Doctor Tom ELSDON. Rick deeply loved, and was loved by, his wife of nearly 40 years, Jane (JOHNSTON,) and cherished his sons David Richard and Andrew Macartney. Rick adored his beautiful 'daughters' Kristen (SKINNER) and Lindsay (GRAY/GREY.) He was predeceased by his loving parents Doctor Norman and Barbara BOYD, and father-in-law Robert 'Mac' JOHNSTON. He will be profoundly missed by his mother-in-law Olive JOHNSTON. Left to mourn are his sisters Judy MANNING, Mary HOPKINS (Ed DAVEY) and Heather MUNRO (Bob,) his aunt Dorothy SEARLE, brother and sister-in-laws Dick and Jane JOHNSTON, cousins, nieces and nephews, and a legion of Friends. He was predeceased by his loyal Bichon Frises, Bijoux and Beaumont. Doctor BOYD graduated from the University Of Western Ontario Medical School in 1968. He obtained his Specialist Fellowship in Urology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1976, and has since then practiced Urological Surgery in Windsor. He previously served as Chief of Surgery, and was currently head of Urology, at the Windsor Regional Hospital. He was one of the founders of the prostate cancer Bracytherapy programme at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. In recent years he has also served the community as a Provincial Coroner for Essex County. Rick was a member of the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. An athlete, Rick ran 27 marathons around the world with a personal best of 2: 48 in Chicago. He curled in the Ontario Medical Association bonspiels, and was an avid golfer and scholar of golf history. He was a member of the Donald Ross Society. He was currently the very proud President of Essex Golf and Country Club. Rick was a skilled clinician and diagnostician, and a gentle man who exhibited great kindness to his patients. He had twinkling blue eyes, a mischievous smile and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. Rick's prize orchids are especially beautiful this spring. Our family thanks the medical community, both doctors and nurses, who supported Rick in area hospitals over the years, and especially Ruth Anne PIETTE and Staci LEMIEUX who loyally kept his office organized in spite of him. We thank the doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospitals who so valiantly tried to save him: Doctor Rob WOODALL, Doctor Anthony GLANZ, Doctor Hash PATEL, Doctor Natalie MALUS and Doctor Balraj JHAWAR, who over five difficult days demonstrated extraordinary skill, as well as great compassion and love to our family. Thank you to Carol DERBYSHIRE and Steve BRENNAN from the Hospice of Windsor; Pat BEST, Paula DEEHAN- SCHMIDT and Chaplain Joyce JARDIN from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital; Kim VAN ALLEN and Bishop Bob BENNETT from All Saints' Church; and our community for enveloping our family in love and prayers as we ran with Rick on his last marathon. Always one to put others first, and ever the healer, Rick has made four gifts of life. His two corneas will go to enhance sight, and, ironically the "perfect urologist kidneys" will give life and hope to two patients. In order to give back to our community which Rick so loved, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to organizations that were so a part of his life: Hospice of Windsor for care of men with prostate cancer; All Saints' Anglican Church; Windsor Regional Hospital for a Cystoscopy suite; Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for the Prostate Brachytherapy Program; and Essex Golf and Country Club for a croquet pitch and garden in his name. Visiting will be held at the Walter D. Kelly Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1969 Wyandotte St. E. On Monday and Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 330 City Hall Square on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation to follow.

KROGH, Thomas Edvard
Born in Peterborough, Ontario, 1936, passed away April 29, 2008. Professor Emeritus, Department of Geology, University of Toronto Retired Curator and Founding Director of the Geochronology Laboratory at the Royal Ontario Museum.
Much loved and greatly missed by his wife Kathy MYERS and sister Joan Armstrong BENNETT. Fondly remembered by his children and their spouses: Erik and Jane, Kari and Dave, Sara and Mark and Jason and Jenn as well grandchildren Jeremy, Rebecca, Ezra and Alyssa Hong GEE.
Tom approached life with a scientific mind, sharing his insights into geology, cooking, organic gardening, energy efficiency and more. Every experience was seen as an opportunity for learning. Always down to earth, Tom was as comfortable in a straw hat on his tractor as he was examining minerals under a microscope. But Tom was perhaps most at home on an outcrop of the Canadian Shield.
A graduate of Queen's University M.Sc. and Massachusetts Institute of Technology Ph.D., Tom especially enjoyed his many years of research at the Carnegie Institution of Washington, D.C. His work revolutionized techniques of radiometric uranium-lead rock dating leading to an unprecedented level of precision that has facilitated the unraveling of the history of the Earth's crust.
Tom was the recipient of numerous awards in recognition of his scientific contributions including the Geological Association of Canada's Logan Medal and the Canadian Geophysical Union's Tuzo Wilson Medal. In addition to receiving an Honorary Doctorate of Science from Queen's University, he was inducted as a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, the Geological Association of Canada, the American Geophysical Union, the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, and the European Association for Geochemistry.
A gathering in Tom's honour will take place on May 8, 4: 00 p.m. at the University of Toronto Faculty Club. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Tom's memory to the Queen's University Science '59 Entrance Award for students in financial need. Condolences received at www.jasonkrogh.com.

WITHERS, Eileen Anne (née TRAYNOR)
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Eileen WITHERS, after a short and courageous battle with lung cancer. On Friday, June 13th, she died peacefully with her husband and two children by her side in hospital in Halifax, age 61. A woman whose journey through life blended several families in many locations, including homes in Scotland, England, Gatineau in Quebec, Ottawa, Halifax, Toronto and finally retirement in Windsor, Nova Scotia. Daughter of proud parents Harry TRAYNOR and Katherine (née GILL) of Halifax. Beloved wife and best friend of Thomas (Ted) WITHERS. Cherished mother of Sarah (Keith BENNETT, Toronto) and Adam MAHONEY (Kendra HURSHMAN, Windsor.) Dear stepmother of Rob MAHONEY (Tracey SLITER, Ottawa), Paul WITHERS (Judy MYRDEN, Halifax) and Carolyn (Andy HEARD, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia). Precious sister of Ian (Ottawa) and Gordon (Halifax), she was predeceased by her sister Christine (Bryan UNSWORTH, York). Eileen will be sadly missed by her extended family and Friends in the United Kingdom, the U.S. and throughout Canada. Born in Greenock, Scotland, her family moved to England before she started school. An avid sportswoman and student, tennis and grass-hockey were balanced by studying mathematics and chemistry, eventually completing an honours degree in Economics at the University of London. In 1968, shortly after arriving in Canada, she realized that her French skills, learned in England, were not sufficient so she enrolled in a French ski school. That way, she could learn to ski and speak French at the same time. Her strong work ethic and commitment to efficiency helped propel her into senior policy roles in several federal government departments, and trade negotiator for International Trade Commission. Eileen was truly a remarkable and multifaceted woman whose interests included her pets, wine making and antiques. Always fond of puzzles and games, the complexity of duplicate bridge enchanted her. She was a Life Master, certified as both a director and teacher. She also judged competitive debating teams. A collector by nature she attended estate auctions most weekends. Travel often centred around a theme, first bridge tournaments, then 'collecting' state capital domes in the United States, and finally, viewing paintings by Vermeer in museums around the world. Her love of art was shared with Ted. In recent years, her generosity led her to volunteer with seniors at the Windsor Elms, especially in the Palliative Care Unit. An active member of her church, she was a Eucharistic Minister. Funeral mass and celebration of life were held in Windsor, Nova Scotia In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, or your local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Animal Shelter. Private messages of condolence can be made in the 'Guest Book' at: www.familycare.ca She met each challenge in her path with grace and wisdom and it was the gift of herself that she gave to others.

During World War 2, she sailed to England to join 'Pete', who was serving overseas in the Royal Air Force, and they were married in London at Saint Martin-in-the-Fields in December, 1941, returning to Toronto in 1959. During the War she served with the Red Cross. She later volunteered for many years with the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire at Dixon Hall in Toronto. She delighted in her family life, her dogs, Chelsea, Hollywood and Marley, long country walks and blueberry picking by canoe in the Georgian Bay. She was fiercely loyal and supportive to those she loved, and always sided with the 'underdog'. Edie's family is deeply grateful to the Meighen Manor for the loving care provided by its dedicated staff. She is sadly missed by her devoted care-giver, friend and daily companion, Merlidita DE VERA, who faithfully maintained her dignity, confidence and humour during her decline from Alzheimer disease. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, July 9th at 2 p.m. in the Chapel of St. James the-Less Cemetery, 635 Parliament Street, Toronto. Donations may be made to the Canadian Alzhiemer Society or Salvation Army, Meighen Manor.
