Meningococcal disease possible cause of death
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Sun Media, Wed., March 5, 2008
Health officials in Lambton County are investigating if the death of a 21-year-old Sarnia woman was caused by meningococcal disease.
Sara Bethany DOIG, 21, died in a London hospital from a blood infection and symptoms of the disease, said Vicki HAWKSWORTH of the Lambton County Community Health Services Department.
"We don't know how she died because we don't have lab confirmation, but if it was (meningococcal disease) it is an isolated case," she said.
The disease infects the lining of the brain or bloodstream and is fatal in about 10 per cent of patients. Symptoms include sudden onset of fever, headache, neck stiffness and vomiting.
People who were in close contact with DOIG have been treated with preventative antibiotics, HAWKSWORTH said.

Mary EVENS: 96
Cellist Played In Concerts, And For Ballet And Opera
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S10
Victoria -- Mary EVENS, a cellist who performed with symphony orchestras across the land during a long career, has died in Victoria. She was 96.
Her orchestral résumé included the Victoria Symphony as principal cello in the 1950s, after which she joined the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as assistant principal cello from 1961 to 1970. She was then principal cello for London Symphony Orchestra (now Orchestra London) until 1979. At each of these she was joined by her husband, Clifford EVENS, a violinist and conductor.
Mary Edith BUCKLIN was born on February 10, 1911, at Guatemala City, Guatemala, where her father, George Augustus BUCKLIN, Jr., was the American consul-general. Her mother, the former Emiline PORTER, hailed from Keene, Ontario, near Peterborough. Mr. BUCKLIN later served as a consul at Victoria, during which time his daughter won the gold medal for excellence in solo performance at the 1929 Victoria music festival.
Her childhood education owed more to Baedeker than to the ABCs, as she lived in France, Germany, Canada, Mexico and New Zealand. She spoke four languages by age 10, by which time she had already taken up the stringed instrument that would be her lifelong avocation as well as passion. She studied in London; Paris; Koblenz, Germany and in Seattle, Washington. Among her instructors was Kurt Reher, familiar to longhairs of a later age for having recorded with Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention.
She earned a master's degree in music at Mills College at Berkeley, California., and later held a position on the faculty of the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario
After her husband's death in 1980, she played with the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra, as well as the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra.
Among her former pupils is Christopher SHARPE, who is the associate principal cello for the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony.
Mrs. EVENS died on December 23. She leaves a son, two daughters, five grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by husbands Reginald Ellery Percy HAMMOND and Clifford Wallis EVENS. She was also predeceased by a brother and three sisters.

NELSON, Ron, 84
Centreman Was A Star Of Pre-War Ontario Hockey League
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S11
Victoria -- Ron NELSON, a crafty centreman with the Oshawa Generals' wartime hockey dynasty, has died in Thunder Bay. He was 84.
The Generals won seven consecutive Ontario Hockey League championships from 1937-38 to 1943-44. For three of those seasons, Mr. NELSON was a star with a reputation for scoring timely goals.
The Generals were favoured to win the Memorial Cup junior championship against the Winnipeg Generals in 1943, only to be stymied by 17-year-old goaltender Doug (Stonewall) Jackson. A turning point in the series came in the fifth game of the best-of-seven series when the goalie blocked a shot by Mr. NELSON in the third period to preserve a one-goal lead and the victory.
"It might have all been different if that shot had gone in," Oshawa coach Charlie Conacher said after the game. The opinion was echoed by the opposing goalie who said, "That was the one that broke their hearts."
Winnipeg won the series in six games.
By the time Oshawa took the Memorial Cup the following season, Mr. NELSON was serving in the wartime army. One of his Oshawa teammates, Albert (Red) TILSON, a lance corporal in the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, was killed in action in Europe. The Red Tilson Trophy is now awarded to the Ontario Hockey League's most outstanding player.
Mr. NELSON later played senior hockey for the Quebec Aces, the Sydney Millionaires and the Glace Bay Miners, among other teams. In playoffs for the Allan Cup with the Millionaires in 1949, Mr. NELSON scored six goals and eight assists in 16 games.
Mr. NELSON spent 44 years working for General Motors, the automobile manufacturer that sponsored his Oshawa junior team.
He died at a long-term care facility on March 7. He leaves two sons, four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by two wives, two brothers, and two sisters.

Stratford actor chose anonymity as a television voiceover specialist
After a stage and screen career, he found that commercials paid better. His work on food products was so lip-smackingly evocative that he came to be called 'succulent Franz'
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Victoria -- His was a familiar voice amid a cacophony of commercial pitches.
Franz RUSSELL's melodious pronouncements extolled the virtues of cars and credit cards, jeans and juice, milk and margarine, hamburgers and gasoline, pain remedies and Republican candidates.
For many years, he was the radio and television herald of Duracell batteries, offering basso profundo assurance that "You can't top the coppertop."
When he declared AT&T to be "the right choice," it was hard to disagree.
When he promised "hot, fresh, golden-brown, crispy chicken from your microwave," it was hard to doubt the tastiness of Shake 'n Bake.
His voice was warm, authoritative, trustworthy. Millions would recognize the tone, though he was unknown by sight. To maintain anonymity, he merely needed to keep his mouth shut.
Four Clio Awards were recognition from the advertising industry of his talents behind a microphone. He became a voiceover specialist after a stage and screen career in Toronto and Vancouver, including roles in top dramas, as well as some memorably inept Canadian television productions. In a field not known for rewarding the character actor or the bit player, Mr. RUSSELL earned a healthy income through his tireless schedule. "I approach acting as a business," he said in 1966.
He was a performer without formal training, launching an acting career from the humble beginnings of a high-school radio program in his hometown. His after-school work on High Time for Teen Time sparked a desire to perform on stage.
Born in Oshawa, Ontario, he first won notice in the Toronto newspapers as one of a "cast of little-known players" in a production of The Rise and Fall of Marvin Derwent at the Avon Theatre in Stratford, Ontario Mr. RUSSELL played a young man who lives in a theatre.
A children's theatre production of The Dandy Lion placed him in the role of Dalton the Daring, a sadistic lion tamer whose cruel antics the audience was encouraged to hiss. He had a secondary - and less villainous - role as a penguin.
Much in demand, Mr. RUSSELL appeared on stage in a production of The Glass Menagerie that offered public performances at Toronto high schools, and on television in the hour-long drama The Great Casa Loma Purchase on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Show of the Week. He also had a role in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation series Seaway.
He found time in his schedule to attend the 1965 wedding of Toronto actor Bill Kemp to Lady Iris Mountbatten, a cousin of the Queen. Alas, the actress Lauren Bacall and her husband, Jason Robards, were unable to attend the ceremony as she was appearing on Broadway in Cactus Flower.
When not on stage or before the television cameras, Mr. RUSSELL was busy as an advertising pitchman. He appeared as a barman for O'Keefe breweries and as a milkman for Borden dairies. The actor had so many well-paying gigs that Globe theatre critic Herbert Whittaker profiled him in an article with the headline: An actor proves there are opportunities to make money in Canada. Mr. RUSSELL told the critic he expected to earn $20,000 in 1966, had an agent who collected 10 per cent of his earnings (except for stage work), and had more assignments than he could handle.
"Perhaps this burly, cheerful and energetic young actor is more versatile than many of his fellow actors," Mr. Whittaker wrote. "He may also be more businesslike, more competitive."
The 1960s offered theatrical possibilities away from the stage. In 1968, Mr. RUSSELL attended a house-wrecking party with artists and socialites in the tony Forest Hill neighbourhood of Toronto. An architect wished to have destroyed an 11-room building he had purchased. A Yorkville model in attendance described the soiree a "super-scene."
The following year, the actor helped raise funds to aid in the legal defence of the producers of the controversial play Futz, who faced a trial on obscenity charges.
In 1969, Mr. RUSSELL was cast in a Toronto-based situation comedy that producers hoped would be shown in daytime in Canada and in prime time on a U.S. television network. Starring Diane Nyland and Steve Weston as newlyweds Doug and Tracy Young, the show's scripts were based on a popular 1930s radio program, Easy Aces. Mr. RUSSELL played a brother-in-law. The Young Marrieds was billed as the first five-a-week serial sitcom in television history.
As it turned out, the show was rejected by all the American networks. Renamed The Trouble with Tracy, the Toronto Star described the production as "deep in trouble" before a single episode aired.
Plagued by a small budget, tired scripts, and a breakneck shooting schedule of seven shows in five days, The Trouble With Tracy came to be seen as the epitome of everything wrong about Canadian television.
Peter Kenter declared it to be the "worst Canadian show ever made" in his 2002 book television North. Five years ago, the Comedy Network announced a revival of the series, an outrageous unlikelihood that convinced a few critics before the move was revealed to be an April Fool's joke.
Mr. RUSSELL was cast in other television shows produced at the CFTO studios in Toronto, including The Waterville Gang, a children's puppet show set in an aquarium. He portrayed a town councillor in Barney Boomer and its Upside Town sequel, both filmed on location at Oakville, Ontario He also appeared as a panelist on the show What on Earth.
Other Canadian television credits include roles in Wojeck, The Beachcombers, Razzle DAzzle and Quentin Durgens, M.P.
On the big screen, Mr. RUSSELL portrayed a small-town businessman in Paperback Hero, a 1975 release filmed in Delisle, Saskatchewan., that The New York Times called "a simple but intriguing movie that says much if you are willing to listen."
Mr. RUSSELL befriended Robert Mitchum while working together on Agency, a 1980 movie produced by Robert Lantos, former Chief Executive Officer of Alliance Communications Corporation, that won three Genie Awards.
He won his first Clio Award for a 1975 radio spot for the British Columbia Government's Alcohol and Drug Commission. Other Clios were won for 1986 television commercials produced by the New York advertising agency Ogilvy and Mather for clients AT&T and Shake 'n Bake.
Perhaps because he so enjoyed food himself, Mr. RUSSELL's voice work on certain commercials was so lip-smackingly evocative that he came to be called "succulent Franz." He was versatile, too, a big man who voiced ads for vegetables not as the Jolly Green Giant but as his sidekick, the Little Green Sprout.
After working in Manhattan and Los Angeles, Mr. RUSSELL settled at Hilton head island, South Carolina, where he and his wife, Robin DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, co-hosted a public-affairs radio program called Around the House. She had launched her radio career at station CHIC ("Where the girls are") in Brampton, Ontario
After a stage hiatus of more than two decades, he returned to the boards in Savannah, Georgia., in 1996 in Here's Love, an adaptation of Miracle on 34th Street. With his girth, jolly disposition and white beard, he was not surprised to be cast as Kris Kringle.
Mr. RUSSELL once told The Globe that he felt shame that he'd "never had any formal training in the business I've chosen.
"I've felt sort of awkward in social situations where people are rapping about how well so-and-so handled the theory in that part; and how so-and-so went to RADA [Royal Academy of Dramatic Art], and how somebody else went to this other theatre school, and I never went anywhere, you know."
Franz William RUSSELL was born May 31, 1937, at Oshawa, Ontario He died June 8, 2008, of heart failure at his home in Guyton, Georgia. He was 71. He leaves the former Robin DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS (née Marilyn ALLAN,) his wife of 39 years, as well as a daughter, step-son two granddaughters and a sister.

Doug MAHER: 87
Playmaker Scored Decisive 1948 Goal
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S8
Victoria -- Doug MAHER, a stay-at-home defenceman who scored a dramatic goal to win a championship for his Dallas hockey club in 1948, has died. He was 87.
Mr. MAHER played 10 seasons of minor-league hockey in the United States. A slight player, especially for a defenceman, at 5-foot-6, 148 pounds, he showed greater skill as a playmaker than a sniper. He never scored more than 10 goals in a season.
On April 16, 1948, Mr. MAHER was patrolling the blueline for the Houston Huskies in the final game of a tied series for the U.S. Hockey League title. With the score tied at 3-3, Mr. MAHER took a pass from teammate Ducky Skinner before shovelling the puck past the Minneapolis Millers goaltender. The series-winning goal was scored with just 28 seconds left in regulation time.
The marker gave Houston the Paul W. Loudon Trophy as league champions. Mr. MAHER's heroics also gave Toe Blake his first title as a coach, as the Montreal Canadiens great had taken over bench duties just weeks earlier after suffering a broken ankle as a player.

Ross IRWIN: 87
Flier won DFM in Royal Air Force, then became Navy Doctor
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S10
Victoria -- Ross Irwin, who has died, aged 87, was a bomber airman decorated for his bravery during an attack by a German fighter.
On the night of January 21, 1944, a Halifax bomber piloted by R.N. Shard of No. 78 Squadron of the Royal Air Force joined a major raid on Magdeburg, Germany. Mr. IRWIN was flight engineer.
Their heavy bomber came under a prolonged attacked by a night fighter, suffering extensive damage as 20 mm cannon shells ripped into the fuselage. "The astrodome was shot away, the mid-upper and rear turrets were put out of action and the hydraulic gear was damaged," the Royal Air Force report states. "The port outer propeller blade was also damaged."
As the enemy fighter continued attacking, Mr. IRWIN stood so that his head stuck out of the broken dome. From this precarious vantage point, unprotected from the elements, he gave directions to aid the pilot in evading the attacking fighter.
The crippled craft eventually eluded the enemy, landing in England despite damaged flaps and two blown tires on the landing gear. Only two of four engines were working.
Mr. IRWIN, a flight sergeant, was awarded the Distinguished Flying Medal for his courage and devotion to duty.
Ross Barrett IRWIN was born June 6, 1921, at Sarnia, Ontario A sheet-metal worker at the de Havilland airplane plant, he enlisted in Toronto in August, 1940. After the war, he joined the navy and studied medicine, becoming an anesthetist. He served as a commanding officer at three military hospitals.
Mr. IRWIN died at his home in Victoria on July 15. He leaves Elfrieda (STUHLMILLER,) his wife of 62 years.
