David and his dear wife, Nancy St. Clair Ryley DENOVAN, died on November 20, 2007 on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. David was the son of Samuel Parker DENOVAN and Laura McCLINTOCK and the brother-in-law of George Moore RYLEY, all pre-deceased. He and Nancy were dearly loved and will be sadly missed by their niece Norah RYLEY of Toronto, nephew Peter RYLEY and his wife Denise HUPÉ of Ottawa, sister-in-law Jessica RYLEY of Toronto and many close Friends. Born on February 13, 1944, David grew up in Toronto and studied Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He began his career as a production film editor with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television in Toronto in 1967. His editing credits included popular series such as Man Alive and The Nature of Things as well as many award-winning dramas and documentaries. His love of film extended to his personal life where he was an avid collector and home-theatre buff with a special interest in the science fiction genre. Later in life, he and his wife moved to rural western Canada where he became involved in environmental concerns and efforts to protect wilderness areas while also indulging his passion for skiing and hiking. Cremation has taken place and will be followed later by burial and commemorative gatherings. Memorial donations to the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, the David Suzuki Foundation or the Sierra Legal Defence Fund would be greatly appreciated.

DENOVAN, Nancy St. Clair (née RYLEY)
Nancy and her dear husband, David McClintock DENOVAN, died on November 20, 2007 on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia Nancy was the daughter of Alfred St. Clair RYLEY and Norah Frances MOORE and the sister of George Moore RYLEY, all predeceased. She and David were dearly loved and will be sadly missed by their niece Norah RYLEY of Toronto, nephew Peter RYLEY and his wife Denise HUPÉ of Ottawa, sister-in-law Jessica RYLEY of Toronto and many close Friends. Nancy was born on March 14, 1932, grew up in Montreal, did undergraduate studies at McGill and post-graduate work at the University of Toronto. Her subsequent career as a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television producer, director and writer was highlighted by her series of documentaries about Canadian artists, musicians and naturalists. Her choice of subjects reflected an abiding sense of a soul connection with nature. Her passion for Canadian art as a representation of that soul was captured particularly in her films about Emily Carr and Lawren Harris which received both national and international awards and continue to be shown in museums and art galleries. Later in life, Nancy and her husband left Toronto to establish their own connection with nature in rural western Canada. The proximity to the wilderness and her own garden sanctuary on Salt Spring Island gave her great joy. Her 1998 book, The Forsaken Garden, is based on her experience living with environmental illness and explores the deep psychological and spiritual relationship between the health of our bodies and souls and the health of the planet. To her, "the garden is a metaphor for the soul, a place where the most important thing is to live and grow; to return to our garden is to consciously return to a place of fullness and naturalness of being that the modern world in its frenzied pace has threatened to obliterate." Cremation has taken place and will be followed later by burial and commemorative gatherings. Memorial donations to the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, the David Suzuki Foundation or the Sierra Legal Defence Fund would be greatly appreciated.

She never remarried, never forgot her war-hero husband
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- Martha COUGHLIN spent her entire adult life deeply in love with the same man, in both peace and war. Everyone thought Lieutenant-Commander Tony COUGHLIN and his wife were made for each other, but their happy marriage lasted only five years, cut short by his death at sea.
Still, her all-too-short marriage was so important to Mrs. COUGHLIN that she venerated it for six decades. In fact, she never married again, preferring to spend the rest of her life alone, cherishing the memory of her husband and his wartime valour. Lt. Cdr. COUGHLIN, known for his fighting spirit, was decorated for helping to sink a U-boat during the Second World War.
Mrs. COUGHLIN's inspiring story of love and devotion still tugs at the heartstrings 69 years after she married her handsome sailor on September 23, 1939, a bare two weeks after Canada declared war on Germany. They spent their honeymoon in New York but it was a short one, since Lt. Cdr. COUGHLIN was badly needed as the Royal Canadian Navy expanded dramatically into the Allies' third-biggest sea force.
After serving six months on convoy duty in the Atlantic as HMCS Assiniboine's gunnery officer, Lt. Cdr. COUGHLIN was seconded to HMS Resolution.
Meanwhile, Mrs. COUGHLIN worked in Ottawa for Metropolitan Life and hoped for the best. On May 26, 1943, her husband took command of HMCS Chilliwack.
On March 6, 1944, Chilliwack played a key role in the destruction of U-744. For almost 48 hours, the corvette was among several warships that stalked a German submarine in the North Atlantic. In the end, U-744 was forced to the surface with depth charges and then pounded into submission by gunnery. Lt. Cdr. COUGHLIN was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross.
Seven months later, on October 19, 1944, Mrs. COUGHLIN's world fell apart when she lost her husband. The day before, a storm had almost washed Lt. Cdr. COUGHLIN overboard from his fourth ship of the war, HMCS Iroquois. Shipmates hauled him to safety, but his leg was fractured. He developed pneumonia and died at Because overseas travel was severely restricted during the war, Mrs. COUGHLIN was unable to attend her husband's burial at the Royal Navy base in Scapa Flow, Scotland. In tribute to their former captain, the crew of Chilliwack presented the ship's bell to Mrs. COUGHLIN. It hung proudly in her Ottawa home for the rest of her life.
Martha COUGHLIN grew up in Ottawa to a life of privilege. The grandniece of lumber baron J.R. BOOTH, she enjoyed a comfortable and carefree childhood during the 1920s.
When her mother died in 1931, her aunts took her under their wing and "continued to school Martha in the ways of a proper young lady as they had been raised in the 1880s. Martha went through life with very firm ideas about how men and women should behave. While she felt men were ideally suited for opening doors for women and fixing things throughout the house, she did not believe that women should be restricted in any way from pursuing whatever they chose to do," said her nephew, Roger DENT.
Mrs. COUGHLIN met her future husband in 1931, at the start of the Depression. Times were hard so the couple decided to settle for a long engagement until things improved.
During the six decades that followed the war, Mrs. COUGHLIN kept the memory of her dashing sailor in a special place in her heart. That didn't mean she stopped living - far from it. She built an active social life, attending parties, luncheons, and played bridge with her Friends, but she just wasn't interested in meeting another man, said her sister-in-law, Theresa DENT. " She did sometimes have an escort for a ball, but she was clear that she'd never remarry. She never removed her wedding band."
An optimist who loved life, Mrs. COUGHLIN graduated from Carleton College (now Carleton University) in 1954. She also spent a year in Paris, studying at the Sorbonne. In 1965, after retiring from Metropolitan Life, she taught typing and shorthand in Ottawa high schools until 1979, insisting on the same high standards she had learned 40 years earlier.
"Manners, posture and politeness were demanded of all students. Those daring enough to chew gum in class were forced to place it on their noses," said Mr. DENT.
An avid world traveller, Mrs. COUGHLIN first visited her husband's grave at Scapa Flow in 1951. She returned nine times, the last in 2000. Making more than 50 trips outside North America, she also went to New York and Halifax to revisit the familiar sights she'd shared so briefly with him.
Mrs. COUGHLIN liked rereading the hundreds of letters her husband wrote during their courtship and the war. On March 16, she suffered a stroke and was hospitalized. A family member fetched some photos of her husband so she could look at them one more time. It gave her great comfort.
Martha Hazel Dent COUGHLIN was born March 4, 1914, in Ottawa. She died May 2, 2008, in Ottawa of natural causes. She was 94. She is survived by nieces and nephews.

McGEACHY, Audrey Yvonne (DENYES)
Passed away on May 2, 2008 in her 92nd year at Rayoak Place. Beloved wife of 63 years of Thomas who passed away in November, 2001. The McGeachys resided in the Agincourt area from 1952 to 2000 and were active members of St. Timothy's Anglican Church. Audrey was proud to say she was born in Toronto's Women's College Hospital. There, in later years, her three daughters, Heather (RICHARDS of Vancouver,) Holly (LIPSETT of Toronto) and Dawn (of Toronto) and grandchildren, Todd and Bart LIPSETT were born. As a young high school graduate in the mid 1930's, when there was limited employment, Audrey was entrepreneurial, applying her love of and skill with dance to establish the Audrey Yvonne School of the Dance. In those tight economic times, she travelled by bus weekly to Guelph and Peterborough to conduct classes there, as well as three days a week in Toronto. Marriage to her Tom in 1938 brought an end to that professional career, but the love of dance never left her and staff at The Leaside and Rayoak Place were cajoled into knowing the five ballet positions which were deftly demostrated even though Audrey would announce, 'I don't do a pas de chat anymore.' More than anything, in her final years, Audrey yearned to be 'back with Dad'. The family is joyful that the wish has now been granted. She will be missed by her daughters sons-in-law, Je In LEE and Robert LIPSETT; grand_sons and great-granddaughter, Taylor LIPSETT. Appreciation to the relatives and Friends who recognized the debilitating social effects of dementia that Audrey suffered from for many years, and stayed the course of contact and Friendship. Family and Friends will be received at the Sherrin Funeral Home, 873 Kingston Road (west of Victoria Park) Toronto, 416 698-2861, on Monday, May 5, 2008 from 10-11 a.m. Funeral service to follow in the chapel at 11 a.m. Interment at Prospect Cemetery. Donations to Alzheimer's Society or the Ontario Cancer Society will be appreciated. Family and Friends are invited to sign Audrey's book of condolences at www.sherrinfuneral.ca
