FRASCATI- LOCHHEAD, Rev. Dr. Marta (formerly DERRA, née FRASCATI)
Marta is predeceased by her father Piero FRASCATI, and her husbands Walter DERRA and David Morgan LOCHHEAD. She is survived by her daughter Francesca DERRA, mother Nicla FRASCATI, sister Liana SAMMARTINO, and brother Pier Luigi FRASCATI.
Marta was born in Livorno, Italy on April 16th 1953. In Livorno, she received her Diploma in Education at the Instituto Magistrale. She received further training in Education at the Faculty of Pedagogy of the University of Florence. Marta followed her family and immigrated to Canada with her daughter in 1975. After a number of years spent in Alaska, she and her daughter settled in Vancouver in 1984. Marta studied at the Vancouver School of Theology, where she received a Master of Divinity in 1988. In that same year she joined the United Church of Canada, following a strong call to the ministry. In 1990 she received a Master of Theology. In 1991 she was ordained minister. In 1994, she received a doctorate in the Philosophy of Religion from the University of McGill in Montreal.
Marta served a number of parishes in the church. She served as minister on Gabriola Island, British Columbia, and in Howick, Quebec. Most recently she had served as the Westminster Pastoral Charge in The Pas, Manitoba. Marta had also been the Director of Pastoral Care at Fair Haven United Church Homes in Burnaby and Vancouver, and was recently the Corrections Chaplain in The Pas. Marta had also been a professor of Theology at St. Andrew's College, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
All through her life, Marta remained close to her Catholic spirituality. In the later years, Marta returned to the Catholic Communion.
Marta believed that she had received a great gift to be able to know in depth two great traditions like the Catholic and the Protestant. She believed in Ecumenicism.
Ut Omnes Unum Sit
That All Become One
Words cannot express the profound effect she had on the lives of many people. She was adored, beloved, and cherished. She was an intelligent, passionate, thoughtful and generous person. She had the most beautiful smile and infectious laugh. Marta will be deeply missed by her Friends and colleagues, but especially by her family and her devoted and loving daughter, Francesca. She will not be forgotten and will be in our hearts and minds forever.
She died at 6: 10 p.m. on March 7, 2008 after a six year struggle with ovarian cancer. Her funeral will be held at Sacred Heart Church in Ladner, British Columbia on Wednesday, March 12th at 10: 00 a.m., Fr. Michael Martell and Rev. Brian Burke presiding.

FRASER, James Kenneth " Ken"
Friday, December 14 a funeral service was held to celebrate the 96 year life of James Kenneth FRASER. Ken passed away suddenly at Grey Gables, Markdale on December 11 with his wife of 71 years, Elva, by his side.
Ken was born on Lot 36, Concession 9 of Proton Township, September 4, 1911. He was the fourth son of James A. FRASER and Elizabeth WALTON, brother of Albert, Jack, Mel and Lena McQUARRIE, who have predeceased him. Ken attended S.S.#10 school and went on to graduate from King Edward High School in Dundalk. He married Elva HENDRY, daughter of William HENDRY and Emma PALLISTER on September 12, 1936 and took over the farm where he was born. Ken and Elva raised four children, Maxine, Margaret, Don and Harvey. In 1973 they retired from farming and moved to Dundalk. In 2003 Ken and Elva moved to Grey Gables, where Ken enjoyed the community of residents and care people there.
Ken was truly a man of the soil, he began farming, ploughing the fields with a one and two furrow plough and horses. He purchased his first tractor in 1945, with his father-in-law. During his time of farming he saw many changes. There was nothing fairer to Ken than a clean field of grain waving in the wind or a new born calf frolicking in the pasture, (especially if it was a shorthorn). His passion was farming, and he loved the land and took pride in what he could do with it. When he left the farm Ken worked for Gohcon, a farm tilling company, for a few years and found this enjoyable as he still worked with the land and had a chance to see many farms of the area. His vegetable garden and his roses were his pride and joy during his retirement time in Dundalk and kept him busy, when he wasn't lawn bowling, in the summertime.
Ken enjoyed a game of cards and was a regular visitor to the little card room in Dundalk. He was noted for introducing the euchre game pepper to Grey Gables. Ken took great interest in what was going on in the world and faithfully read the newspapers and watched the news. Quite often reminding his family of what was up in politics and clueing them in on things they should be aware of. He was always standing up for the agriculture community, even in the last three weeks of his life, when he took up the torch, that they should have butter on the tables at Grey Gables. So with a petition he went the rounds of the residents and staff and made a presentation to administration. It was received and butter was put on the tables. Ken being who he was went one step further and wrote a letter to Gay Lea congratulating them on their 50th anniversary, and of course informed them of what he had done at Grey Gables. He also made note that he had been on the United Dairy and Poultry Board which was the beginning of Gay Lea. A week after his passing a package came from Gay Lea with four pounds of butter and a 50th anniversary limited edition of a Gay Lea truck. This was Ken FRASER to the end.
Ken devoted not only his time to farm and family, but to his community and his church. He served 11 years as a director of the Dundalk Agricultural Society and a term as president, and was 4-H Calf Club leader during that time. One of his proudest moments of his later years was opening the 150th Anniversary of Dundalk Fair in 2005. He was a director on the Dundalk Co-Op, and a director on the Grey County Hog Producers. Ken was a trustee on Proton Township School Board, and seven years on Proton Township Council. He attended Knox Presbyterian Church at Ventry where he served on the board of managers, and also served as an elder of Erskine Presbyterian Church, Dundalk. After moving to Grey Gables, Ken was active on the residence council.
Rev. Mark DAVIDSON, minister of Erskine Church and Rev. John HOGERWAARD, former minister of Erskine, officiated at the service in Erskine Presbyterian Church, Dundalk. Service commenced with Psalm 100, a Psalm of thanksgiving. Hymns sang were "All the Way My Saviour Leads Me", "And Can It Be That I Should Gain" and "Beyond the Sunset". Scripture read by granddaughter Christine BUTLER was Psalm 23, 1st Corinthians 15: 55-57 and Romans 8:35-39. Rev. John HOGERWAARD gave a meditation "A Living Hope" that Hope being through Jesus Christ, and Him alone. Memories were given by grandchildren Shawn WALTER, Brent FRASER and son Harvey FRASER. Rob SCOTT, grand_son, sang "In the Bulb There is a Flower." Pallbearers were grand_sons, Brent FRASER, Shawn WALTER, Richard FRASER, Rob SCOTT, grand_son-in-law Henry REINDERS and great-grand_son Mark REINDERS. Flowerbearers were granddaughters, Christine BUTLER, Shelley KRAUTH, Shirley REINDERS and Julie BARRETT.
Ken leaves behind his wife Elva, daughters Maxine (Bob) SCOTT and Margaret (Ray) WALTER and sons Don (Cay) FRASER and Harvey (Terry) FRASER, nine grandchildren, predeceased by one, and nine great-grandchildren.
The many people who paid their respects at the time of Ken's passing would have been received with great appreciation by Ken. He was among a generation that there are few remaining. And many of them who have been great examples of lives well spent no matter what the challenge was before them. Harvey FRASER, youngest of the family, summed it all up when he said "Dad, you were one of a kind, and you leave big footsteps to follow".

LINKLATER, Harold Fraser
Harold Fraser LINKLATER was born on October 1, 1917 in Teeswater, Ontario to Harvey and Gladys (née Mason FRASER) LINKLATER. He was the oldest of three brothers. Until his death all four of them were still living - I'm sure that is a record for four brothers who had survived World War 2. Harold died at 90 and all his brothers are in their 80s. His great-grandparents arrived in Canada from the Orkneys in Scotland in 1852 and some of his great-uncles had come to Canada with the Hudson's Bay Company. The family moved to Kincardine in August 1929 when his father Harvey bought the furniture store and funeral home from W.H.A. MORRISON. He worked helping his father from age 12, but really started that career in 1935 when he finished Grade 12. In 1937-38 he took courses at the Banting Institute and General Hospital in Toronto. At 19 he got his license as an undertaker but couldn't use it until he was 21. He married Nora Elizabeth DIMOND on November 20, 1940. In May 1940 he had joined the Canadian army. He went into Officer training in Brockville and between 1940 to 1943 he was stationed in Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia. In World War 2 he went overseas in June 1944 before the invasion of France and stayed there until the fall of 1946. He was in the 19th Self-Propelled Regiment. He was a Captain by the time the war ended. His daughter Elizabeth Ann was born in 1949 and son John Douglas in 1951. He was a Rover Scout and became a cub and scout leader. He was on the Kincardine Public School Board for 10 years, belonged to the Rotary Club, the Kinsmen, the Masonic Lodge and was president of the Chamber of Commerce for two years and received an award. In 1970 he was chairman of the Old Boy's and Girls Reunion Committee and won the award of Citizen of the Year. He cherished the silver tray that he was given to him with that inscription. The award was reported in the London Free Press. Ballots were received from as far away as Michigan and from across the province. It was the largest number of ballots at that time and 70 percent voted for him. His pride and joy was the cottage he built on Crab Cove near Red Bay. He bought the lakefront property in 1952 for $350 and in 1953 he and his neighbour Ed HAGEDORN put up the frame. He worked both at the Linklater Funeral Home and the Linklater Furniture Store. From 1966 to 1974 he owned and operated the funeral business by himself. In 1974 at age 57 he sold the Funeral business although he helped the new owner in the summers for 4-5 years afterwards. In 1974 he and Nora bought a place in Lakeland, Florida and started going there in the winters in 1975. Nora died on his birthday, October 1, 1988 after a 48-year marriage. He married Helen Emma HAYES (née COULSON) of Saint Thomas and Lakeland, Florida on July 22 1989. He and Helen lived at the cottage until September 2000 and in Owen Sound since then. They wintered in Lakeland until 1995 when Harold got cancer of the jaw. He survived that as he did a heart attack, strokes, blindness, and several operations. He was tenacious and had a tremendous will to live through all of these ailments until April 2008 when he accepted he was failing. Perhaps being a funeral director had given him this will to live because he had to live with death around him for so many years. Harold is survived by his beloved wife Helen, his daughter Elizabeth (Liza) and her husband James TROTTIER of Manila, Philippines, his son Douglas (Doug) of Red Bay, his grandchildren Jesse and Dane of Barrie, his brothers Ken (and Reita) of Kincardine, Bryce (and Alma) of Jarvis and Gordon (and Joan) of Toronto, and his former daughter-in-law, Dianne LINKLATER of Kincardine; his step-family Helen (and Bert) WRAY of Durham and their children Marla (and Lee) ZWOLMAN of Milton, Kevin and David WRAY; and to Marg NICHOL (and Gerald) of Brampton, Donald FINDLAY (and Teresa) of Campbell River, British Columbia and William FINDLAY (and Gazelle) of Winnipeg; as well as everyone's children and many grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren. Heartfelt thanks and affection are extended to dearest Helen, Helen and Bert WRAY of Durham, Fern and Ken FYNN, Linda CRANDALL and Ab LIPSETT and Mary VAN TRIGT, all of Owen Sound for their loving care and assistance over the last years. A memorial service took place on Monday May 5 at the Kincardine cemetery and was followed by a reception at Knox Presbyterian Church. Arrangements were made by Harold's friend Tom WHITCROFT of the Thomas C. Whitcroft Funeral Home and Chapel in Sauble Beach. Donations can be made to the charity of your choice.

CARSEN, Clementine Ruth (née NAHM)
(Sunday December 29th, 1918-Sunday April 6th, 2008)
In her 89th year, suddenly, after a brief stay in hospital, from lung disease. Clementine leaves behind her husband Walter, daughter Johanni and son Robert. Clementine immigrated to Canada with her parents from Mannheim, Germany, shortly before World War 2. She adjusted to a new way of life, set to work in several capacities, married, and was instrumental in helping her husband to build up his new business (W. Carsen Co). She later worked as a very active member of the Volunteer Committee of the Art Rental Department of the Art Gallery of Ontario, of which she was a Founder Member. But it was her discovery of yoga which completely altered her life. She became a remarkable teacher, and her gentleness combined with her intuition and generosity made her a much loved teacher, first in Toronto, then at the Prem Anandham Ashram in Beaverton, Ontario and in more recent years in Naples, Florida, where her classes were always full to overflowing. She donated the proceeds of her teaching to charity, which was always an important part of her life. Clementine was a devoted wife and mother, and a loving, concerned friend. She had a wonderful sense of humour, boundless curiosity and genuine interest in others. She will be greatly missed by everyone that she met. Her family is grateful to her many Friends who gave her so much love and support in recent years and especially during the 3 weeks she spent in hospital. Particular thanks go to Doctor Weaver and the medical and nursing staff at the Physicians Regional Medical Centre in Naples, Florida, and also to Doctor Michael BENTLEY- TAILOR/TAYLOR and Doctor Ian FRASER at the Toronto East General Hospital. Her family would also like to thank her wonderful spiritual guide Arundhati STEINMEISTER and her dear friend Lianne DI ROCCO for helping her through her brief illness. Memorial services will be held at a later date in Toronto, Ontario; Naples, Florida and also in Europe. Please email: jcarsen@sympatico.ca to be kept informed. Clementine's wish was for her life to be celebrated, not mourned. If you would like to do so by making a donation to charity in her honour, please contact: The Canadian Cancer Society, Ontario Division, 1639 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario M4T 2W6 Online address: https://secureccs.ca/donations/donations.aspx?div=2?=en or The Salvation Army Ontario Central-East Division Public Relations and Development Department 1645 Warden Ave Toronto, Ontario M1R 5B3 Online address: https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/honor.aspx?EventId=8102&LangPref=en-ca

FRASER, Mary " Betty"
Passed away peacefully at Elginwood Nursing Home on Sunday, May 18, 2008, in her 89th year. Betty was predeceased by her husband Larder FRASER, a well known Cape Breton municipal councillor, in 1973. She was the beloved and loving mother of Elaine and Ross, and she used all her formidable strength and wit to establish them in life and then, in retirement, inspire them with her diverse cultural interests, her financial management skills and, in recent times, her tenacity in the face of chronic pain. She learned to speak French as a retirement project, painted poignant watercolours of children and 'old faces,' as she called her portraits of older people, and bottled classic preserves such as her famous corn relish. Earlier, as a school teacher, she inspired a generation of students at Riverview Rural High School in Cape Breton, where she taught for nearly 20 years; she had the talent of being the firm, nononsense teacher who truly cared, and students became devoted to her. Before retiring, she completed her university degree by taking classes part time at the University College of Cape Breton. Funeral services will be held at Marshall Funeral Home, 10366 Yonge Street, Richmond Hill (4th traffic light north of Major MacKenzie) on Thursday May 22 at 11 a.m. At her request, Betty will be buried in Cape Breton. A funeral service will therefore also be held in Betty's home town of Sydney, Nova Scotia at the Chant Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra Street on Saturday May 24 at 11 a.m. Online condolences may be left at marshallfuneralhome.com

ATKIN, John Hamilton " Jack"
Born August 12, 1928 in Leamington, Ontario; died peacefully on May 19, 2008 in his 80th year, exactly 10 days after accepting the news of the extent of his cancer with courage and dignity - the same realistic way he dealt with every other challenge he faced throughout his life, particularly during his last few years with limited mobility and multiple health issues (to quote him, this was just another 'curve ball'). He was surrounded during his last days by love, family, Friends, music, and of course, Flowers. Needless to say, he was telling jokes right up to his last hours of consciousness. He was much loved and will be missed by his children Greg and Carolyn ATKIN, Jay and Mary Maureen ATKIN, Virginia ATKIN and Keith AMBACHTSHEER, and Jacqui ATKIN and Laurie FRASER; his grandchildren Melissa ATKIN and Mike RYAN, Sean and Lori ATKIN and Peter AMBACHTSHEER. He was also very close to and will be missed by his sisters Jane JOHNSON, Bette SHARPE and Ruth STOREY. There are also numerous nieces and nephews who lovingly remember their Uncle Jack, cousins, a multitude of Friends, and a brother Bill. Predeceased by his parents Edward and Edith (JACKSON) ATKIN, his step-mother Agatha (WILSON) ATKIN his brother Don ATKIN, his brothers-in-law, far too many Friends, and his soulmate, Mary (ROBERTSON) BLAIR, with whom he is now reunited. Always a visionary, Jack was a pioneer in the growing, mass marketing and distribution of flowers throughout his career. He was one of the first flower producers to introduce the sale of potted plants and cut flowers to major food chains and department stores. In carrying on the family business that his father started (Atkin's Flowers, then Yoder-Atkin), he advanced the year-round propagation and sale of chrysanthemum cuttings to North American markets, and was a great believer in plant breeders' rights. His innovation for packaging and distribution led the way for the success that exists in today's flower industry. He also started the direct sales business at Ontario Flower Growers. Known as 'Action Jackson', he was also an avid volunteer in numerous organizations - he was one of the founders of the Cecil Delworth Foundation and the Canadian Ornamental Plant Foundation, a strong supporter of Flowers Canada and The Canadian Horticulture Council, and served on the Board of the Royal Winter Fair when they introduced the flower show into the annual program. Jack has always been recognized by the flower industry of North America and has been given many awards for his contributions over the years. He was also involved in building the Leamington District Memorial Hospital in the 1950s. His interests included having the best garden in town, curling, Kinsmen, tennis, barbershop singing, playing cards, scotch, dancing (even in his wheelchair) and more recently being a Claremont Calendar guy! Jack was always proud of the lifelong Friendships he made along the way with so many people, including his colleagues, most of his clients, and his competitors. His life was about 'caring and sharing'. He will be remembered by his 'power of positive thinking' approach to life, his loyalty and Friendship, the flowers he always had for everyone, and his lifelong ambition to make people smile. Jack's family is very grateful to Lynn WEBSTER, Natalie COPPOLINO and the entire Staff of The Claremont Retirement Residence for making the last few years of his life so happy (and the Residents, too); to Doctor Mary GOSPODAROWICZ of The Princess Margaret Hospital, and Dianne WILLIAMS and all of the very special Palliative Care Nurses at Saint Michael's Hospital for their care and compassion in easing the pain for Dad, and helping his family through this last part of his journey Dr. Gary MAY and the Gastro-Intestinal Team at Saint Michael's Hospital as well as Doctor Carmen MUELLER and Doctor Catherine WONG. Arrangements handled by The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, North York. A Celebration of Life will be held at The Old Mill, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto on Tuesday, June 17 at 3: 00 p.m. While there will definitely be flowers, we ask that those interested in making a donation to remember Jack do so either to The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 2M9 (1.866.224.6560 or www.pmhf.ca) or to The Jack Atkin Memorial Fund at the Ontario Agricultural College, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1 (payable to the University of Guelph). We are setting up a 'Jack Atkin Memories' website - you can email jacqui.atkin@sympatico.ca to send us your stories and photos, and to be added to get on our website announcement mailing list. We will all miss Jack's warmth, love of life, and jokes! It Was A Great Ride!
