Don't think of Katie as gone away, Her adventure has just begun, Our lives hold many dimensions, Life on earth is merely one. Remember Katie smiling, As she is today, Knowing only our sadness, Can truly pass away. Think of her forever alive, In the hearts of those she touched. No one loved is ever lost, and Katie is loved so much.

It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Samuel Aubrey KERR on February 19, 2008 at the age of 92. Predeceased by his beloved wife and solid supporter of sixty-three years Elsie Ruth (née SANDS- YAWORSKI). Admired and respected father of Ernie (Louise MARSHALL / TYSON), Robert (Angie CHIEW), grandfather to Stewart (Tonia KEIZER,) Mathew (Autumn PEER fiancee,) Jennifer, and Amy PILLING, great-grandfather to Brendan, Ty and Dominic. He leaves his loving brother Professor Donald Peter (Ruth HIGGINS deceased). Aubrey was born in Orillia, November 29, 1915. He attended Oakwood Collegiate in Toronto. Following studies at the University of Toronto he enrolled in the graduate program at U.B.C. (Vancouver) obtaining his M.A. (Geology) in 1942. Immediately following this he was recruited by Imperial Oil as part of Canada's war effort to search for oil in Southern Alberta. After years of exploration with Aubrey as field geologist, Leduc 'blew in' February 13, 1947, changing the course of Canadian history, making Alberta a major player in the world oil market. In 1959 Aubrey was chosen by the National Energy Board as Chief Geologist and the family moved to Ottawa. Following success in the capital he retired and returned to Calgary in 1975. He turned his attention to an intense study of the history of Alberta's oil industry by collecting and documenting a wealth of information. He interviewed and taped many 'oil patch' personalities leaving a large collection to the Glenbow Museum Archives, Calgary. All of this culminated in eight great books (including Leduc, Redwater and Atlantic #3). In 1998 he received an honourary Doctors degree from the University of Calgary and was inducted into the Petroleum Hall of Fame in Leduc. He participated in numerous professional organizations including the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum and Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta. He was involved in the Anglican church. Both he and Elsie enjoyed annual escapes from the -30 degree weather to visit Barbados and Victoria. He continued to be involved with his writing even to his ninety-first year. The family wish to thank the staff of Trinity Lodge, Calgary for their decisive professional actions and care as well as the outstanding medical staff of the Rockyview Hospital, Calgary. Service at Anglican Christ Church Calgary to be announced.

Farm deaths 'very sad'
Weekend accidents kill two in Perth County
By Joe BELANGER, Tues., April 22, 2008
Perth County's farming community is reeling after two of its own were killed in weekend accidents.
The deaths have agriculture officials urging farmers to take fewer risks at a time when the pressure's on to get in their spring planting.
"It's very, very sad," said Andy DE VRIES, an Ontario Federation of Agriculture director for Perth North.
"It's just devastating for the whole community to have something like that happen."
Glen MILLS, 44, of Blanshard Ward, was killed Sunday when he fell into a liquid manure tank and drowned.
Russell KIPFER/KUEPFER, 40, of Milverton, was killed Saturday when he was crushed beneath a cultivator he was working on.
Perth Ontario Provincial Police said MILLS was doing chores on his dairy farm on Perth Line 6 about 6: 45 p.m. when there was a problem with the tank.
MILLS used a ladder to climb into the tank to try shutting off a valve and slipped off the ladder into the pit, which contained about 450,000 litres of manure, police said.
"Family members attempted to locate Mr. MILLS, and when they found him in the pit, they pulled him out of the pit and attempted to resuscitate him, but attempts were unsuccessful," said Const. Glen CHILDERLEY.
MILLS was transported to Saint Marys Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Saturday, police were called to a report of a man crushed under a cultivator at 3: 30 p.m. on Duke Street in Brunner.
Police said KIPFER/KUEPFER had rented a shop to work on the cultivator and was under it when the hydraulic bottle jack gave out, pinning KIPFER/KUEPFER.
A friend stopped by the shop, found KIPFER/KUEPFER and called emergency services.
Emergency crews arrived at the scene but were unable to revive KIPFER/KUEPFER, who was pronounced dead at the scene by a coroner.
DE VRIES said many farm-related injuries and deaths occur during the spring planting or fall harvest because of the workload.
"When the weather's nice and you've got a lot of work to do, it's go, go, go," said DE VRIES, who operates a poultry farm in Elma Ward in northern Perth.
"A lot of it comes down to maybe making short cuts. But you've still got to use common sense."

CHILDS, Philip Harry Routley
Philip Harry Routley CHILDS died peacefully, surrounded by his family, at Kingston General Hospital on July 24, at the age of 83. Born in Yeovil, Somerset from a long line of west-countrymen, he found himself at 14 on the south coast of England in 1940 with a vintage Ross rifle to fend off the Germans. Between 17 and 19, better equipped, he saw action as a subaltern with 141 Royal Armoured Corps, (the Buffs) in North West Europe. Retrained for Japan, in August 1945 he was redirected to the Middle East and seconded to the Arab Legion, a posting which gave him a life-long affection for the Arab people, particularly the Bedouin. With life in postwar England holding little attraction, he emigrated to Canada and by mid 1948 received his third commission, as an officer of the Lord Strathcona's Horse, leading him in the following years to locations as diverse as Staff College, Vietnam with the International Control Commission, the United States and Ghana. On retirement in the mid 1970s he became a law student, exchanging a crew cut for longer hair and a beard and acquiring new Friends only slightly older and cooler than his children. A small town law practice in Kemptville preceded a further career founding the legal division of the Auditor General's Office of Canada. A final retirement opened a very happy period on Sand Lake welcoming birds, beasts, Friends and family. Beyond his life long knack for finding himself in the world's hot spots, Philip was a loving husband and father, a genial host and bon vivant, an enthusiastic traveler, an avid reader, a mechanical wizard, and an accomplished woodworker; capable of fixing a washing machine while debating world history or quoting obscure poets, practical in small things and unbendably principled and idealistic in larger ones. He believed very strongly in justice and was convinced that finding truth was the surest route to achieve it. He is survived by his beloved wife of 56 years, Eileen, his children Peter (Maureen McEVOY,) Andrew (Pauline ANDERSON,) Caroline (Babis MAGOULAS) and Michael (Danielle ST- VINCENT,) his 7 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. A remembrance and celebration of his life, followed by a reception, will be held at Sand Lake: 130 Powell Bay Road, Elgin, Ontario, at 2 p.m. Saturday, August 16. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.

OSBORNE, a natural saleswoman
By Trina BERLO, Page 27
Wasaga Beach retail pioneer Edna OSBORNE continued working until shortly before her death last month at the age of 91.
She is the well-known matriarch of the OSBORNE family, long-time retailers in Wasaga Beach.
Mrs. OSBORNE died in Florida on April 15 after a two-year battle with cancer.
Mrs. OSBORNE owned and operated a store in Hollywood Beach, Florida until the age of 84 but continued assembling shell jewellery, which she sold in her daughter Erna's nearby shop.
"She was a natural salesperson. Very quiet spoken and everybody seemed to like her," said Ernie OSBORNE of his mother.
She is the original proprietor of The Jewel Box, located in the castle on River Road West, which is now operated by her grand_son, also named Ernie.
Mrs. OSBORNE and her husband, Ernie, opened their first store in Wasaga Beach in 1944.
It was the height of a new era of tourism in Wasaga Beach as soldiers, stationed at nearby Camp Borden, discovered the burgeoning resort town, which they visited while on leave.
"They were overwhelmed with how busy it was and how much the stuff they sold in the city was needed here," said Ernie,
His parents first visited Wasaga Beach as children in the 1920s. They both lived in Barrie and Ernie recounts stories he has heard about the trip taking six hours by car because of the limited speed of the early automobile, and road conditions which regularly caused flat tires.
His parents met in high school, were married and went to work their first retail jobs in Burlington.
Ernie said shortly after they borrowed money from his grandparents - Ernie and Edith OSBORNE - to open a store in Toronto.
They ended up operating several Toronto stores at once in the late 1950s.
Ernie said his parents loved to dance at the dance halls of the day - such as the Dardanella and Starlight Gardens (an outdoor dance floor) - where they danced while they were dating.
He said his parents would get in the odd night of dancing in the shoulder season, before their retail stores demanded long hours.
With staff operating the Toronto locations, eventually the family operated several 5 and 10 stores in Wasaga Beach - a type of variety store that sold everything from house wares to souvenirs.
Ernie said the main store (built in 1945) was located in the Main Street mall at the main beach. They also had one store at Balm Beach and one near 22nd Street.
Ernie said he has spent every summer of his life in Wasaga Beach but his parents took the whole family to Florida every winter. He said it was their chance for a getaway at the beach, a chance to relax and spend time with their children.
As a child, Ernie said he began the school year in Wasaga Beach, transferred to Toronto, then to Florida, then back to Toronto and transferred back to Wasaga Beach to finish out his year. He said he spent many evenings with the family preparing merchandise for sale.
Ernie said his parents were always working. His grandparents helped at the store too and a number of young women were brought in to work at the store as well. One of those young women who came on staff in 1964 was Elaine - Ernie's wife-to-be.
Elaine said about 35 people lived in 16 rooms on the second floor of the Main Street store. while Mr. OSBORNE made regular trips to Toronto to pick up merchandise, Mrs. OSBORNE's job was to look after the staff. She had to hire a cook to feed all the people who worked for them.
"The staff alone that they managed was amazing," said Elaine. "They were busy people."
"It was crazy," said Ernie.
Elaine and Ernie describe Mrs. OSBORNE as a fiercely hard-working woman who was tender but also strict and managerial when it came to the daily operation of her business.
"She could give you heck for something and when she was finished you were happy and you couldn't figure out why… one of those kinds of people," said Ernie.
Family members travelled to Florida for the cremation but there was no service.
Her husband Ernie OSBORNE, 92, lives in Hollywood Beach, Florida.
Ernie and Edna had four children; Ernie OSBORNE, Elaine CHILLMAN, Erene McWILLIAM, Erna DENNIS, seven grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

'Conscience of Canadian publishing' was a champion of free speech
As director of the Book and Periodical Council, she promoted writers and publishers, helped settle copyright issues and encouraged literacy. Most of all, though, she fought censorship wherever it lurked
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Toronto -- Nancy FLEMING/FLEMMING has been called the conscience of Canadian publishing, the keeper of its secrets, a patient instructor and a fierce opponent of censorship in all its forms.
As executive director of the Toronto-based Book and Periodical Council, she left behind a legacy that includes Freedom to Read Week, the Canadian Children's Book Centre, Access Copyright, the Canadian Copyright Institute, Give the Gift of Literacy, and everything from the Book Industry Freight Plan for book shipments to the royalty payments of the League of Poets.
A certifiable bookworm, her own shelves bulged with hundreds of books. Not surprisingly, the collection revealed a predilection for banned books with titles ranging from Asha's Mums to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. She was particularly interested in female North American writers, "and that automatically includes a number of banned authors: Margaret Laurence, Mavis Gallant, Alice Munro," said her daughter Martha. "They've all experienced having their books banned… not by the state but by individual libraries or faith-based schools."
She was born Nancy CHISHOLM in a flat above Mildred Rose's millinery shop in Toronto's west end. In an unpublished memoir, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING described how as a little girl during the Depression, she learned her colours in the hat shop. Her father worked in another store up the street, selling shoes. "The shoe business was a good one," she wrote. "After all, children's feet did grow… and men who had jobs (or were looking) needed them."
As a teenager, she studied commercial arts at Western Technical High School in Toronto, learning about the world of clerical and retail business, which were traditional routes for women in the 1940s. Shortly after graduation, she met Allan FLEMING/FLEMMING, who had studied commercial art at the same school but was a year older. In a sense, he already knew her: He had fallen in love with a photograph of her in the school yearbook.
The couple married in 1951 and soon moved to England, setting up in a garden flat near Chelsea. Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING worked in a Soho garment factory while her husband studied type and printing. It was an exciting time to be abroad. In London, they became Friends with filmmaker Ken Russell, who went on to direct Women in Love, Tommy, and Altered States. And they rubbed shoulders with the likes of Pablo Picasso in Paris. They were dining in a Spanish restaurant there when they were suddenly asked to pull in their chairs. "Just as the musicians and dancers were coming to the stage, the waiter asked us to move briefly so he could escort the customers… it was Picasso and Jacqueline [Roque] we stood up for. He nodded in acknowledgment but I'm reasonably sure he remembered me less than I him," she wrote.
Four years later, they returned home on a freighter, putting in at Rimouski, Quebec, to pick up timber. There were 11 passengers on board and each afternoon, they sipped tea together and nibbled tin after tin of Peak Frean biscuits.
Back in Toronto, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING became acquainted with the city's arts community, largely through her husband's work as art director at Maclean's magazine and chief book designer for the University of Toronto Press. Mostly, she spent the next two decades raising their three children. As she wrote in her memoir, "[I chose to] forget about running the world."
She was, however, the underpinning for all her husband's busy freelance career, looking after the books and serving as project manager on such corporate assignments as his acclaimed logo for Canadian National Railway. "She was a fantastic executive wife and became a fantastic executive herself," said her daughter Martha.
In 1977, everything changed when Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING died suddenly. By then, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING had begun working at the Toronto constituency office of John Roberts, a Trudeau-era Liberal member of Parliament with a committed interest in Canadian arts and culture. Two years later, the Book and Periodical Council offered her the job of executive director. "Take it, Nancy," said Mr. Roberts, who was anticipating a federal election call. "One of us must be employed."
He lost the election and she began her career - feet first - in Canadian publishing. In running the BPC, an umbrella organization for associations involved in writing, editing, publishing, manufacturing, distributing, selling and lending books and periodicals in Canada, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING immediately launched into issues dear to her heart. At the top of the list was the fight for intellectual freedom and how to best manage a disparate community of players.
"Nancy was one of those key people who laboured in the trenches on behalf of the writing and publishing community," said novelist Graeme Gibson, the author of Five Legs (1969), Perpetual Motion (1982) and The Bedside Book of Birds (2005). "The quiet dedication and persistence needed for such work is far too often overlooked."
Perseverance was indeed a key requirement of the job. Over the years, controversy dogged Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING - both in council meetings, where the clash of different philosophies sometimes stirred up conflict, and anywhere that books and magazines were being stopped at the border, pulled from library shelves or removed from children's hands.
"Nancy worked well with everybody: her board, committees - she was the kind of person who was strong, had her own opinions, and her views were sometimes controversial, but she put everything else aside for the sake of making the project a success or making the event happen," said Jackie Hushion, executive director of the Canadian Publishers' Council. "It's hard running an organization of organizations, and she was very good at helping all the various entrants get to the point of saying: Okay, let's just get on with it and get it done."
As Jane Coutts's boss at the Book and Periodical Council, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING prioritized the work so as to always achieve the big at the expense of the small. For instance, she let Ms. Coutts draw a line on the wall and not do any filing until the pile of papers reached it. Meanwhile, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING's determination to champion free speech in Canada went well beyond anti-censorship. According to Ms. Coutts, she once laboured long into a Friday evening trying to free her young assistant, who had inadvertently locked herself into the supply cupboard at the Toronto office. "We were hours late going home that night. The door had to be taken off its hinges. And Nancy just thought it was funny. Once I got out. She was far too mother-hen-ish to laugh at me while I remained locked in."
Franklin Carter, an editor of the journal Freedom to Read, said Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING never backed down in the fight to prevent controversial books and magazines from being removed from libraries, schools and even convenience stores. "Some people think that the Freedom of Expression Committee defends only classic novels by Alice Munro and Margaret Laurence from would-be censors," he said. "We do defend these books, but we also defend the right of Canadians to read gay pornography and Mein Kampf."
Defending Vancouver's Little Sisters Book and Art Emporium was a case in point. Janine Fuller of Little Sisters said Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING worked tirelessly on their decades-long struggles against Canada Customs, which had seized shipments of books and materials considered pornographic and obscene.
During the early years of the fight, at a time when the store was receiving little support, she said Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING sent "a bottle of scotch, mailed it from Toronto during our court case, saying that she was thinking of us and knew how difficult it was to go through the process."
The fight went all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada. In 2000, the court ruled that customs officials were indeed harassing the store by seizing its books and videos. It said the government had the right to censor material, but was doing so unfairly and needed to change its procedures.
By that time, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING had retired. She left the BPC in 1999, to accolades and tributes. Three years later, she was joint recipient of an award for the Advancement of Intellectual Freedom in Canada for her work on the Freedom to Read Kit. The award, which is recognized by the Canadian Library Association's Advisory Committee on Intellectual Freedom, honours contributions to intellectual freedom by individual librarians, libraries or institutions. The kit itself was seen as an essential reference tool for the Canadian library community, as well as a key lens through which to examine the state of censorship at a time when threats to freedom of expression are prevalent. Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING shared the award with co-workers Peter Carver and Sarah Thring.
Mr. Gibson, who worked with Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING for close to four decades, said her contribution to Canadian publishing was essential: "I have a sense there was a period in the history of the BPC when Nancy was central in keeping it alive and kicking."
The secret, he said, was her quiet and unrelenting devotion.
"Translate this 'quiet' activity into sound and you have something resembling Gustav Mahler's Symphony of a Thousand," wrote Ruth Pincoe, of the Editors' Association of Canada, in a 1999 tribute to Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING.
Nancy FLEMING/FLEMMING was born Nancy CHISHOLM on June 23, 1931, in Toronto. She died there peacefully on February 24, 2008, after a long struggle against emphysema. She was 76. She leaves behind children Martha, Susannah and Peter, as well as their partners and her grand_son, McCullough.
