GIRVAN, Kenneth MacDougal
Kenneth died November 17, 2007 at age 86 at Brentwood Bay, British Columbia. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 42 years Jean Emily CALLISTER on April 18, 1991, as well as by his later life partner Louise LANG of Duncan, British Columbia. His loss is mourned by two daughters and a grand_son, Jane GIRVAN of Golden, British Columbia, and Martha MEERS and her son Mitchell MEERS of Georgetown, Ontario. At age four Ken suffered a severe infection of the middle ear which left him deaf in one ear and partially impaired in the other. Ken enlisted in the army in 1942 and was commissioned as an Infantry Lieutenant early in 1943 at Camp Borden, Ontario. During battle training in Southern England, the continued cold wet conditions aggravated his chronic middle ear leaving him temporarily deaf. As a result he was reassigned to Barriefield, Ontario, as an infantry instructor for the duration. Ken was a member of the Toronto Argonauts Rowing 8's before and after the war. In June 1945 Ken joined the Canadian publishing firm of Random House as a sales representative for Ontario. Over the years, Ken represented McGraw-Hill, Clarke Irwin, and Fitzhenry and Whiteside, being with the latter firm for 18 years. Ken was well suited to his employment and felt it was an occupation to be envied. Ken and Jean lived on a small rural acreage near Georgetown, Ontario during most of his working years. After his retirement in 1985 they moved to Gorden Head, British Columbia, an area which offered fine weather, year around fishing, a splendid opera and excellent medical facilities. After a three year struggle, Jean succumbed to cancer in 1991. Ken enjoyed great success fishing in the early years, but the diminishing quality of the ocean fishery led him to sell his boat and purchase Nikon Camera equipment and immerse himself in the study of photography. Numerous road trips with his camera to the American Southwest and the Canadian Rockies were highlights of his later years. In the winter months Ken kept busy in his darkroom or listening to classical music to which he was devoted to throughout his life.

ARNSBERGER, Ruth Karin
Painter, weaver, adventurer, teacher. Born April 22, 1922, in Haug, Norway. Died January 11 in Wiarton, Ontario, of complications of heart disease, aged 85.
By Ross CALVERT and Lynn KRZYWIECKI, Page L6
An adventurer and accomplished artist, Ruth lived her life with a tireless energy and depth of passion.
Her story can be told from the immense number of sketches, paintings and tapestries she created over her lifetime, from the drawings of her youth through her studies at art school in Norway to the many years that followed. She was recognized internationally for her skills as a designer, weaver and painter, and her work was presented in many exhibitions.
Ruth was born the eldest of three sisters and two brothers. They were close growing up, experiencing the hardships and deprivation of the Depression and the Second World War.
She left Norway, in her own words, "to have an adventure." Eventually she found her way to Colpoy's Bay, Ontario, where she spent nearly 50 years. Here she found love and married Orlo. Until his death in 1988, they maintained and operated Cliffside, a rustic cabin retreat on the shores of Colpoy's Bay. Cliffside was Ruth's beloved home, and she remained there until her death.
Ruth painted in any weather, frequently accompanied by one of her dogs. She sought isolated locations, capturing wind and rain, snow and ice, long-lost buildings and the rocks and cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment.
For more than 20 years she taught weaving part-time at Georgian College. Over the years she donated her art to local fundraising causes and contributed to the preservation of the Bruce Peninsula. One of her proudest accomplishments was her ski shop, which she operated from Cliffside.
Ruth found love a second time with her friend Ross. In the last two decades of her life, their Friendship gave them a cherished companionship. With Ross she was able to maintain Cliffside and enjoy many years of discovery on the Bruce Trail and the Lake Huron and Georgian Bay shorelines.
Ruth treasured her Friends and neighbours. Although she didn't have children of her own, she enjoyed a good relationship with Orlo's daughter, Barbara, and her children. And in spite of the distance between herself and her family in Norway, they had a timeless relationship.
Ruth was a proud and private person, and fiercely independent. Although she could admit to her failing health, she found accepting help from anyone but Ross difficult.
She once said she was never alone because she had her art. It sustained her in difficult times and gave her the will to live until she couldn't hold on any more. Thankfully, she left her spirit immortalized in the places she loved best.
Ross CALVERT is Ruth's friend, and Lynn KRZYWIECKI is Ruth's friend and Ross's daughter.

RICH, Bernard Wakeham
Bernard was at home in Oakville in his bed by the window, his loving wife Margaret and his family were by his side as he closed his eyes for the last time. He died peacefully on June 12th 2008 at the age of 86. Bernard will be dearly missed by his wife of 62 years Margaret (DAKERS) and his five daughters Bonnie RICH (Thomas CALVERT), Catherine HANSEN (Kaj), Virginia PEARCE (Richard), Linda ESSIEMBRE (Yvon) and Pamela BEZIC (Val) and his ten grandchildren Mark, Devon, Laurel, Emily, Peter, Eric, James, Rebecca, Joshua and Jennifer. He was born in Beamsville, Ontario, but most of his boyhood memories were of St. Catharines where he met Margaret before going off to the war. During World War 2, Bernard served as a flight instructor with the Royal Canadian Air Force before being assigned to 31 Squadron Royal Air Force as a flight officer and posted to Burma. Upon his return to Canada, he joined Trans Canada Airlines and went on to a distinguished 37 year career. He retired in 1981 as a highly respected 747 Captain with Air Canada after logging 26,600 hours in the air. In his retirement years when he wasn't filling his time maintaining his beloved home in Oakville he was golfing, sailing, flying and sharing happy hour with anyone who happened to drop in. He made many Friends in Naples, Florida where he and Margaret were the center of what they referred to as their "other life". For those who were lucky enough to cross his path, he was a genuine man's man. From skiing the mountains of the Alps to diving in the coral reef, from canoeing Canadian northern lakes to sailing Lake Ontario and everything in between; he took advantage of all life's opportunities and he generously shared his experiences with others. The Boy Scouts at Maple Grove United Church were one of the many groups that benefited from his commitment to community. Bernard was admired for his devotion to his five daughters (Bonnie, Catherine, Ginny, Linda and Pam). His passing is a devastating loss in the lives of his 5 daughters, ten grandchildren and all those whose lives he touched. All of our lives have been enriched by Grandpa's words of wisdom, encouragement and inspiration. His priceless life lessons will continue to guide us all. Our Canadian Airman has flown, to touch the face of God.
Final Departure.
Family will receive visitors in the Ward Funeral Home, 109 Reynolds Street, Oakville (905-844-3221) on Tuesday from 6: 30-8:30 p.m. Service will be held in Saint_John's United Church, 262 Randall Street, Oakville on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. with a reception to follow.
