Harry Robert AMBROSE
Harry Robert AMBROSE passed away peacefully in the evening of March 10,
2008 at the Manitoulin Health Centre in Little Current at the age of 64.
He was born in Bowmanville, the son of the late Robert and Viola COOPER)
AMBROSE. A special loving husband, companion and best friend of Gladys.
Father to daughter Tammy Lyn and special Pops to Vic. Dear brother of
Margaret (husband Les) Fickling, Jim (wife Vivian) Ambrose, Harvey (wife
Cheryl) Ambrose. Harry will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews.
Harry grew up in Oshawa and worked from being a paper boy to working at
General Motors until he officially retired in October 1996. He was a
member of Saint Steven's United Church and sang in the choir. Harry moved
to Manitoulin Island in 1994 to be with the love of his life and made
many, many new Friends during his time here. He was an active member of
the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 177 always volunteering and giving
donations to support their events. It was through the Legion that he took
up curling, going out at least three times a week. He enjoyed this sport
and was very proud when the team won the provincial curling championship
in 2006, bringing the trophy back to Little Current. A fun loving
character, he always was the life of any gathering and loved to make
people laugh through his passion for singing and playing the " BONES." He
was a professional welder and took on many welding jobs after doing shift
work at GM. He loved stock cars and helped build them but never actually
raced. He attended many Nascar Races and his favorite was the #5 car
driven by Terry Labonte. Although he would always say, "I've never done
this before", Harry was a self-taught woodworker, and carpenter. He liked
to work in Gladys' flower gardens when she wasn't looking, and learned to
knit squares and the cancer clinic, used them to make special blankets.
Gone, yet not forgotten, Although we are apart, Your spirit lives within
us, Forever in our hearts. Visitation was from 5 pm Wednesday at Aundeck
Omni Kaning Community Centre. Funeral Service was at 11: 00 am Friday,

Collingwood historian Don PARRISH dies
PARRISH key in implementing Harbourland project
By John EDWARDS, Page 3
Well-known Collingwood resident Don PARRISH died on February 12, at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket.
He was 77
PARRISH worked at the Collingwood Shipyards for more than 40 years and was an avid historian.
According to Deputy Mayor Sandra COOPER, who knew PARRISH all of her life, he often volunteered at the museum and was an active member of the Harbourlands committee. COOPER said PARRISH was instrumental in putting together the path of hull plates from Huron Street to the harbour.
Former Mayor Terry GEDDES, who gave the eulogy at PARRISH's funeral, said he will be sadly missed.
"When he died, not only did a piece of his family die, but so did a piece of Collingwood," GEDDES said. "It's the Don PARRISH's that made Collingwood the community it is."
PARRISH was an avid sports fan, having played hockey for the Stayner Royals and was regularly seen at Collingwood Blues games. He was a fan of the Boston Bruins and Red Sox.
"You'd always see him with a Boston ball cap on," she said.
He was married to Yvonne and was a father to Stephanie, Donna and Brenda and grandfather to Nathan, Brandon, Kayla, Becca, Ryan and Lexi. He is predeceased by his brothers Gordon and Gary.

Heinz NIEDERHAUSER, 72: Baker And Athlete
Chocolatier became leading cross-country ski coach
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Heinz NIEDERHAUSER never seriously strapped on cross-country skis until he was in his 30s. Once started in the sport though, he never stopped - all the way to the Olympics. Over a span of 35 years, he tested instructors, started ski clubs, co-founded the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors and served as head coach of the national cross-country team.
His rigorous training programs took a no-nonsense approach. Athletes could expect three-hour runs, their coach in the lead, and to be left in the parking lot if ever they were late. "He was very dedicated, and we worked extremely hard under him," said Margaret Holden WAECHTER, who was a member of the Ontario Junior Team in the early 1980s. "He had this love of racing and training and health and fitness and he inspired people to be the best they possibly could be."
Raised in Zurich, Switzerland, he grew up as one of three children to parents who ran a chocolate factory. Young Heinz enjoyed sports and persuaded his Friends to stay play soccer by sometimes bribing them with bits of chocolate.
Never the keenest student, he finished secondary school and worked for a while in the factory. In 1952, he began an apprenticeship as a confectioner and pastry chef in Basel. Despite his father's skepticism, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER excelled, placing first in his year.
Between compulsory stints of military training, where he trained as an army cook, he worked in a confectionery shop in Lausanne until being persuaded by his father to return to the family factory as a salesman. A year later, he left after a row with his father and immigrated to Finland in 1957.
He found a job with a candy manufacturer where he fell in love with Ann SARKKI, a co-worker. They married in December, 1958, and immigrated to Canada three years later. The family (including new son Lars) settled in Toronto, where Mr. NIEDERHAUSER worked first at a bakery, then at the Westbury Hotel. Two more sons, Tom and Glen, quickly followed.
For seven years, the family owned a bakery in Scarborough before moving east to what is now Pickering, Ontario There, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER coached soccer and became involved in fitness programs at public schools. In the late 1960s, the family took up downhill skiing near Barrie, Ontario, and, after meeting some Finns and Estonians there, switched to cross-country. Before long, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER was racing (and losing miserably) against the experienced Scandinavians. He began training year-round and was soon beating them soundly.
In the 1970s, the sport took off, and so did Mr. NIEDERHAUSER's involvement. By 1975, he was the paid coach of the South Ontario Division ski team, and moved the family to the Muskoka region, where they lived on 32 hectares of land that soon became the Raymond Ski School.
Mr. NIEDERHAUSER used it as a training facility for the team and supplemented activities with year-round, week-long training camps in provincial parks.
In 1976, he co-founded the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors and, a year later, moved to Ottawa as technical director and head coach of the national team. However, not everyone appreciated his style. Grumbling followed his introduction of mandatory, European-style, early-morning runs, and discontent ran so high that he believed it would be better if he did not accompany the team to the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid.
To his disappointment, only the women's team competed. The Canadian Olympic Committee had deemed members of the men's team unlikely to place in the top 16 and told them to stay home.
Mr. NIEDERHAUSER was fired along with Jack SASSEVILLE, another coach. While the dismissal angered Mr. SASSEVILLE, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER chose to focus on ensuring a smooth transition. "That was his way," Mr. SASSEVILLE said. "He constantly was working towards trying to make skiing better."
That year, too, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER's marriage ended.
In 1981, he met Blanche DRAPEAU. During the next decade, the couple moved to White Lake outside Ottawa, purchased Lowney Lake Campground and started a family. From the campground, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER ran a bake shop and a landscaping business, while remaining involved in skiing.
During the 1980s, he also founded and coached the Ottawa Racers Ski Club and helped develop the city-owned Mooney's Bay facility into one for cross-country training and racing. He coached the Ontario Junior Team and served on the national ski team committee.
When the 1988 Calgary Olympics came around, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER was there as chief of manual grooming of the cross-country course. With his usual dedication, he supervised a large crew charged with touching up the trail with rakes and shovels.
Later, Mr. NIEDERHAUSER started the ski club that came to be known as Lowney Lake Nordic and was eventually based out of the campground. He also became involved with the national capital district ski program and the Ontario Junior Team. Among his protégés was Kate Brennan, who made her World Cup debut in last month's races in Canmore, Alberta.
Although Mr. NIEDERHAUSER officially retired last fall, he continued to coach. At the beginning of January, some of his athletes were competing near Collingwood, Ontario, and he took to the trails between events to prepare for an upcoming World Masters Race in Idaho in March. "It's a beautiful day for a ski," he said as they parted. He collapsed soon afterward.
Heinz Walter NIEDERHAUSER was born August 27, 1935, in Zurich, Switzerland. He died January 5, 2008, in Duntroon, Ontario He was 72. He is survived by his wife, Blanche Drapeau. He also leaves his children, Sven, Jana, Lars, Tom and Glen.

MILLER, Blema (COOPER)
Wife, mother, gifted teacher, loyal friend, feisty pioneer. Born December 14, 1910, in Montreal. Died September 16, 2007, of old age in Toronto, aged 96.
By Jack MILLER and Mary Jane MILLER, Page L6
Blema COOPER was in some ways a typical child of Jewish parents growing up in the 1920s in Montreal. In other ways, she was different. She did well at school and played sports, but also loved to climb through unfinished buildings with her father.
Graduating with honours from McGill University, she became the first Jewish high-school teacher hired by Montreal's Protestant school board. She could not study architecture, her first love - women did not do that sort of thing in the 1920s - but discovered that teaching was a vocation.
As a teacher Blema had many gifts, including a head for math and a heart for kids who needed extra attention. She was firmly convinced that anyone could do math with the right help.
When she married Abe MILLER, she was laid off, like every other female teacher who married. In Cornwall, Ontario, while raising son Jack and daughter Helene, she channelled her energies into the synagogue, volunteer work for local charities and substitute teaching. When Abe died, she returned to Montreal to teach high school, a widow at 53.
Blema did not suffer fools gladly. The school board tried to retire her at 60, but she taught another year. They tried it again. Stern letters did not deter her from teaching one more year. Until her mid-80s, she tutored kids in math. She was still helping her caregivers with English in her 90s.
Always up on the latest news, Blema had strong opinions on events. She disliked cooking and had help with cleaning all her life. She made imaginative, custom-knitted sweaters using all kinds of wools and yarns.
Blema wanted to see both children happily married - with lots of grandchildren. Hélène and Bob KENIGSBERG obliged. Blema took grand_sons Mike, Dan and Alan to the theatre, played board games and generally spoiled them. All children, including her great-grandchildren, delighted her.
Jack resisted her repeated suggestions that he get married. Then, at 40, he chose Mary Jane, another MILLER and academic but a Presbyterian. That was fine with Blema, who became a close friend of Mary Jane's mother, Elizabeth.
In later life, bridge, travel, newspapers and grandchildren kept Blema busy, although it was a struggle to get her to give up driving.
At 89, with her eyesight and hearing failing, she chose to go into a retirement home. She had a gift for making Friends, and her laugh was infectious. Despite her "forgettery" - her word - she enjoyed the company, the activities and the food.
Her last three years were difficult, but she was still loving, still stoic in her illness when family visited, and still a joy.
Jack and Mary Jane MILLER are Blema's son and daughter-in-law.

GROOME, Agnes Jean (née MILLS)
Passed away peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in Toronto on May 30, 2008. She was born November 5, 1918 on the family farm near Fleming, Saskatchewan. Eldest daughter of Sam and Isabelle MILLS, Agnes was predeceased by her husband Leslie Jaquest GROOME, her parents, her sister Ivy SMITH, brothers-in-law Paul GROOME, Al SMITH, Bob SMITH, and sister-in-law Iris MILLS. She is survived by her brother Reuben MILLS, her sister Isabelle MILLS, daughters Jean COOPERBERG (Peter), Ruth KURTZ, Mary KAINER (Michael), seven grandchildren Ruthie SHUGARMAN (Danny,) Michael COOPERBERG, Daniel KURTZ (Martina SORBARA), Thiago KURTZ (Andrea BREEN), Anton KAINER, Leah KAINER and Lindsay KAINER, and her 3 great-grandchildren Talia and Cooper SHUGARMAN and Francesca KURTZ. Also important to her were nieces Gae MILLER, Vivian PALSSON, Ariel GROOME and nephews Alan MILLS and Byron MILLS (deceased) and their families. Dr. Reverend Agnes GROOME was a woman of remarkable energy and organizational skills. An accomplished educator and minister, she was highly educated, earning seven degrees in seven decades (B.A., B.Ed., B.Div., M.A., M.Ed., Ph.D., M.Div.). Involved in life-long learning, she took her last course at the University of Regina at the age of 88. Her teaching positions included Central Collegiate (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan), Martin and Sheldon Williams Collegiate (Regina, Saskatchewan), University of Regina, and University of Toronto. Her church postings included mission fields in rural Saskatchewan, Saint_James United Church (Regina), Grace Church in Moose Jaw, St. Andrew's (Toronto), Silverthorne (Toronto), and a short locum in Ft. Qu'appelle. A woman ahead of her time, St. Andrew's College refused her ordination and her name was struck from the roster of graduates because she had married and was expecting her first child. Agnes always took a leadership role in community organizations including the Young Women's Christian Association, United Nations Association, University Women's Club, Health Research Board, Saskatchewan Pension Committee, New Democratic Party (candidate in Wascana), plus many church positions including Sunday School Superintendent, Elder (first female in position at Lakeview United Church). Agnes was honoured to have been appointed by the government of Saskatchewan to the Cluff Lake Inquiry into uranium development. As recent as two years ago, Agnes embarked on a project to have stained glass windows honouring women in the Bible installed in Lakeview United Church. As part of her dedication to education in Saskatchewan, Agnes established several scholarship funds at the University of Regina in the names of her husband Les GROOME, her brother-in-law Paul GROOME, her parents Sam and Isabelle, and plus made a generous donation to the University of Regina establishing the Groome family fellowship in health research. Agnes and Les were a remarkable team; through all their studies, travels, and endeavours they loved and supported each other. Agnes was a true matriarch in her family. She was the driving force behind family projects; everyone was expected to be onboard and involved. She could do anything and did -- wire a home, build a stone fence, shingle a roof, install floors and siding, build furniture, sew, even bake 12 pies at a time. Agnes tackled everything with passion, including stamp collecting, family tree research (four volumes), and land development. Foreign travels were opportunities to study history and were fodder for lectures. Widowed at 62, she then earned a new degree, and embarked on a new career in a new city. Beloved by her grandchildren, she encouraged them in all their varied interests. Later in life she took great pleasure in building a new home (at age 80) and planting 900 perennials on Pasqua Lake. She knew Canada well as she moved many times: from Fleming to Brandon, Saskatoon, Regina, Dunnville, Guelph, Clinton, Vancouver, Moose Jaw, Regina, and Toronto. Funeral will be held on Thursday, June 5, 2008, 2 p.m., at Wesley United Church, 3913 Hillsdale Street, Regina. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 4, 6-7: 30 p.m. at Speers Funeral Chapel 2136 College Avenue, Regina. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sam and Bella Mills Scholarship, University of Regina.
