Additionally, he is survived by his daughters Argena (Bonnie) BERNE of Stelle, Illinois; Lynn JOHNSON of Dawson Creek, British Columbia; Kathleen HAMILL of Ft. Fraser, British Columbia and his step-daughter Beth BORIS as well as 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Clearly, Jack emerged as a self-made man who lived an extraordinary life. Valued for the insights and optimism he shared with others, he was distinguished by his particular focus on self-discipline, love, freedom and trust. Characterized by his use of reason and creative innovation throughout his many careers, he was held in respect by many, especially in business matters. Jack served in his youth as a member of the Royal Scottish Regiment in World War 2 (1940-1945). During the past 6 years, he lived in Parkwood Hospital, London, until his death on Sunday last. A memorial service will be held at 1: 30 pm., Thursday, March 6, 2008 at the Church of the Good Shepherd at Parkwood Hospital to acknowledge the deep sadness and heartfelt loss of his presence in our lives.

BLAIS- DIAMOND, Margaret (née JOHNSON)
Joyfully entered the world on October 10, 1919 and quietly left on April 12, 2008. She spent 88 years living, loving and appreciating the world around her. Born to Hugh and Myrtle JOHNSON, sister to Vera, Jean and Nonie, she spent her early years as a "tomboy" playing tennis, climbing trees, skipping school and doing a variety of water activities. Her lifelong love of swimming and the serenity of water began with her dodging ships on the Detroit River in a sailboat or swimming. Margaret was in the Air Force during World War 2 and began her medical career there working with the Doctors and then in Medical Records. In 1949 while living in Toronto she met and married Aime BLAIS, together they raised six children and lived in a variety of farms in Southern Ontario and eventually settling in Strathroy. Times were tough on the farms but with lots of love, and determination they weathered the storms and Margaret even completed a Hospital Administration program at University of Saskatchewan. She was in Public Relations, and as Assistant Executive Director for over 30 years at the Strathroy Hospital loving it, and totally believed in positive leadership and the balance of work and family life. To say Margaret was proud of her six children was an understatement. Her unconditional love and unwavering support was there for all of us throughout our lives. She spent her retirement living on Lake Huron with her second husband Bert DIAMOND and swimming in many oceans and lakes. Bert died in 1987. For the last 15 years she lived with her son Paul in Toronto and together they roamed the world. Margaret loved life, she was kind, funny, curious and keen to meet new people and enjoy new experiences. She always said "Yes, I'll go" We will miss her dearly and will hold her strong values of family and respect forever. We are her proud children. David (Joanie and Thomas), Don (Ruth, Lisa, Chris, Angela and Hannah), Paul (Chris), Michele (Cliff, Ian and Paul) Doug (Michael), Nicole (Holly,) and her special daughter Tena GRAY/GREY. Visitation will be held on Monday, April 21st from 2-3 p.m. where the Funeral Service will be held at 3 p.m. in Denning Bros. Funeral Home, Strathroy. Tea to follow. Celebrate her life by doing something you love or donating to a charity. A tree will be planted as a living memorial to Margaret.

CHAPPLE, James " Jim" Clement
Age 70, died July 1st, 2008, surrounded by family and Friends. Jim was born in Montreal in 1938. His 33 years at Bell Canada helped shape Jim's life. It was there he made many Friends and made the move from his hometown to Ontario. Loyal friend and generous teacher are words commonly used to describe Jim. He was a man who was true to his commitments and those around him. Jim was an energetic member of the East London Anglican Ministries. Fundraiser extraordinaire, he could always be counted on to lend more than a hand. As consistent as East London Anglican Ministries in Jim's life was his involvement in the Huff n' Puff hockey league and love for spending time with his pals on the golf course. The consummate social director Jim could always be found organizing events, serving as master of ceremony or host and in general the life of the party. His jokes and sense of humour are legendary. Through his life there are so many people he has touched and who are richer for both the wisdom and laughter gained from Jim. Whatever the moment in life, Jim was someone you wanted by your side. Jim is survived by his wife, Nancy, his son and his wife, Marty and Barb (of Brantford); his son and his wife, Joe and Pam of Ajax); his daughter and her husband, Donna and Rick (of Chatham); his son and his wife James and Erin (of Seattle); eight grandchildren, Brandi and her husband Ian, Steven, Danielle, Laura, Lee, Jana and Logan; one great-grandchild, Loren and his business partner and close friend Dan MacLEAN. He is further survived by brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, cousins and an endless number of Friends. Relatives and Friends are welcome at the Forest Lawn Memorial Chapel, 1997 Dundas Street E. (at Wavell) London, on Thursday, July 3rd from 1: 00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. or 6: 00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Funeral services for Jim will be held at 10: 30 a.m. Friday, July 4th, at East London Anglican Ministries, 2060 Dundas Street E, London. Father Michael JOHNSON will officiate. Jim's life would not be complete without a party. After the funeral service there will be a reception at the church. Burial will follow the evening of Friday, July 4th at 8: 00 p.m. in Erskine Cemetery, the North East corner of Finch Avenue and Fairport Road, Pickering. Memorials may be made to either the East London Anglican Ministries building fund (2060 Dundas St. E. London, Ontario, N5V 1R2) or the Canadian Cancer Society (www.cancer.ca or 1-888-939-3333). Jim was known for his constant celebration of life. For those who cannot attend the reception please take a moment to celebrate Jim's life by toasting to your favourite memory, story or laugh shared with Jim.

JOHNSON, Victor
In memory of my husband Victor December 29, 1930-July 24, 2003. I remember the day I met you And the day God made you mine, I remember the day God took you, And will 'till the end of time. We made our vows together, Until death do we part, But the day God took you from me, Sometimes I think I'm dreaming, I can't believe it's true, That I can go on living, When I no longer have you. And the memories of the happy years When we were together, The joys, tears, love and fears, Will stay with me forever. And when I'm sad and lonely, And everything goes wrong, I seem to hear you whisper, "Cheer up and carry on". Each time I see your picture, you seem to smile and say, "Don't cry, I'm only sleeping We'll meet again some day". Miss you - Your loving wife Jean.

'The Sibelius of Latvia' made his mark in Canada as a composer and teacher
He fled his homeland at the end of the Second World War and settled in Toronto in 1951 to produce a steady stream of symphonies, concertos, cantatas and chamber music
By Ken WINTERS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Talivaldis KENINS was a major musical figure in the latter half of the 20th century, both retroactively in his native Latvia and pro-actively in Canada.
He arrived in Canada in 1951 to serve as organist and choirmaster of the Latvian congregation of St. Andrew's Lutheran Church in Toronto, and stayed on to carve out a career as a teacher, conductor, performer and composer. A professor emeritus of the Toronto's faculty of music, he was celebrated for his chamber music as well as for composing symphonies, concertos, cantatas and for the organ.
Prof. KENINS was born into a cultivated Latvian family. His mother was a writer, while his father was a lawyer, diplomat, politician and nationalist who would later die in a Soviet gulag.
Young Tali, as he was called, began playing the piano when he was 5, but as he said, "music was never forced on me because I was not expected to be a musician." Instead, everyone anticipated he would become a diplomat. With that career in mind, he was sent to the Lycée de Grenoble, in France, where he graduated in 1939. He returned home to Riga, where he turned instead to music and took up studies at the Latvian State Conservatory. He was compelled to leave Latvia when the Soviet Union occupied Latvia at the end of the Second World War.
He returned to France, where he won a scholarship to the Conservatoire de Paris. In 1950, his Cello Sonata, which he composed for his graduation, had its premiere at the Salle Gaveau concert hall in Paris by French cellist Maurice Gendron.
After graduating, he had some difficulty making a living. By that time, he had fallen in love with Valda DREIMANIS, a young countrywoman he had met in Paris. They married and were soon expecting their first child. He was playing the piano in bars to keep bread on the table when a letter arrived from Canada offering a job as organist and choirmaster at the St. Andrew's Latvian Lutheran Church on Jarvis Street in Toronto.
The KENINS soon set sail for Canada. They arrived in Halifax in November, 1951, and took the train to snow-covered Toronto to begin their new life.
The salary at St. Andrew's was nominal, and to supplement it Prof. KENINS took a job delivering refrigerators and stoves for Simpson's, the department store. Desperate, he asked for a meeting with Arnold WALTER, the director of the newly established faculty of music at the University of Toronto. Celebrated Canadian tenor Edward JOHNSON, now chairman of the board of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, was also at the meeting. Both men agreed that he should join the faculty of music to teach composition, contrapuntal techniques and keyboard harmony at an annual salary of $2,000.
Thus began a teaching career that Prof. KENINS considered as important as his writing. Composer John BECKWITH became his closest colleague on the faculty. "He and I were appointed to the University of Toronto faculty of music in the same year, 1952," Prof. BECKWITH said. "I had just returned from studying in France. Tali had spent the immediate postwar years at the Conservatoire in Paris, in the same class as Pierre Boulez. He was the only colleague with whom I could enjoy habitually conversing in French."
Prof. KENINS, who became a Canadian citizen in 1956, went on to teach such pupils as pianists Arthur Ozolins and William Aide, musicologist Walter Kemp and composers Edward Laufer, Bruce Mather and Ben McPeek, plus a generation of younger composers.
He continued along his twin paths as teacher and composer with unflagging ebullience until 1984, when he retired as professor emeritus. His composing, however, continued apace.
Prof. BECKWITH, who retired from University of Toronto as professor emeritus six years later, said Prof. KENINS excelled as a pianist and improviser. "What Tali had was craft. He had it up to his eyebrows. He was at home in counterpoint and fugue. He had that fluency that all composers strive for but many find hard to achieve."
His compositions deserve to be better known, said Prof. BECKWITH. "In Latvia, despite his emigration, Tali became known as the country's national composer, like Neilsen in Denmark or Tubin in Estonia. He was also the Latvian Sibelius, with eight superb symphonies in his output. Symphonies, I might add, which Canada's major orchestras have ignored, a fact I find not surprising but absolutely appalling."
The Eighth Symphony, commissioned for the Latvian Song Festival in Toronto, had a major role for concert organ, to take advantage of the Gabriel Kney organ at Roy Thomson Hall, where the work was premiered in 1986.
Latvian-Canadian pianist Arthur Ozolins is a champion of Prof. KENINS's music. He plays all four piano sonatas, including the Schumann Paraphrase, and the concertos. He has recorded the First Sonata, and he gave the premiere of the Concerto for Piano with Strings and Percussion in 1991 at Roy Thomson Hall. Mr. Ozolins hears the influence of French composer Olivier Messaien in these works, but points out Prof. KENINS's highly personal use of the octatonic scale (alternating semi-tones and tones) and his fondness for discords of the seventh and the minor second.
Mr. Ozolins was a pupil and protégé of Prof. KENINS since his arrival in Canada in 1958. "He treated me almost as a son. He loved to spend his summers in a cottage in Wiarton, on Georgian Bay, where he did most of his composing. His wife was not much interested in music, but she was a superb cook… and she babied KENINS. I spent a summer with them and it was an idyllic time. I remember his younger son, Andy, who then was about 15, copying his dad's manuscripts in the most beautiful, meticulous hand in India ink."
The elder son, the cellist George KENINS, also remembers an earlier summer, when he was in his mid-teens, sight-reading with his father the Beethoven cello sonatas. "We would also do solfège to Bach fugues. So when I got to the University of Toronto, I was ready. He was a teacher to me, but I was seldom aware of it. His aim was to make his pupils think in music for themselves."
He said his father always composed to order. "He agreed with Hindemith, who said, 'The muse has learned to be prompt.' He also didn't like revising things. He would rather write a new piece. He wasn't attracted by the wave of minimalism which swept up composers of the time. He said, 'I am not a minimalist; I am a maximalist.' "
Prof. KENINS also liked to say he was not an innovator, but a follower. "But as a follower, I try to put in as much as I can of my own mind, my spirit and my message… But I can tell you I learned a very great deal indeed from my teachers… I also always followed the advice of Jean Cocteau, who said 'The great masters are inimitable; therefore, imitate them.' My model was Maurice Ravel. His aim was, in the minimum of time, to say important things."
For all that, Prof. KENINS said that in writing symphonies, he chose to take new paths in different directions. "The Third was a stepping stone, when I realized I was able to express my priorities in music and drama in a symphonic language," he said. "In the Fourth, I set out to find whether the latest devices, or catalogues of devices, would fit my musical thinking.
"They have said in France and Canada, and now in Latvia, that KENINS has lots of craft. I hope that, besides the craft, there is some talent and some music, too."
Prof. KENINS received Latvia's highest honour, the Order of the Three Stars.
In 1994, he finished what he vowed was his last large work, the Nonet, subtitled L'Ultima Sinfonia. He had spent eight years on it and declared that it included all he knew and had to say. "You know, Copland said, 'To write one minute of music is nothing, but to write two minutes is already more complicated.' Here, I have written a 40-minute work, and that was extremely complicated and very exhausting. So this will be the last."
Four years later, however, he was inspired to write his Viola Concerto. Commissioned by the great violist Rivka Golani, at her request, it was premiered by her in 2000. The work really was his last.
He was, according to Latvian composer Peteris Plakidis, a witty writer of music. "His music is full of self-irony, just like the man. He said, 'I don't like my own compositions very much, but I like terribly to compose them.' "
Talivaldis KENINS was born in Liepaja, Latvia, on April 23, 1919. He died of pneumonia in Toronto on January 21, 2008. He was 88. He was predeceased by his wife, Valda, in 2006. He is survived by his sons George and Andy and his grandchildren Aleks, Amanda, Laura, Christie and Daina.

Philanthropist won Breeder's Cup as the owner of thoroughbreds
With her husband, Ernie SAMUEL, she made significant donations to the Royal Ontario Museum. Together, they also owned Dance Smartly, at one time the world's top money-winning mare
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S10
A woman with an insatiable appetite for life and an inherent belief in the value of giving back, Liza SAMUEL was a volunteer, a horse breeder, president of the second oldest company in Canada, a philanthropist and probably the richest woman in the country. As a couple, Liza and Ernie SAMUEL were Friends, lovers and lifelong partners in a range of interests and pursuits including family, business, the Gaslight nightclub, which they owned and operated in Yorkville in the 1960s, sailing, horse breeding and even a hydroponics venture. "They believed if you can dream it, you can do it," said their son Mark.
Elizabeth (Liza) June SAMUEL was the only child of William Roy and Constance (WRIGHT) CHADBURN, a family of missionaries and entrepreneurial inventors. One of her antecedents invented the Chadburn telegraph, a device that enabled a crew member on the bridge of a ship to pull a handle that would ring bells in the engine room to communicate instructions, such as "dead slow" and "full steam"; the company, centred in Liverpool, England manufactured a great number of navigational instruments. Her parents lived in England, but happened to be visiting Paris in June, 1933, when she was born.
In the early days of the Second World War, when Liza was about 6, she and her mother were evacuated to Canada. Her daughter Kim still has the beloved doll her mother brought with her on the ship crossing the treacherous Atlantic. They settled in Montreal and Liza attended The Study, a private girls school. Her father, who was in the Home Guard, stayed behind in England until after the Germans were defeated. After joining his wife and daughter, he moved his family to the Moore Park area of Toronto and sent his daughter to Bishop Strachan School in Forest Hill.
When she was about 14, Liza went on a blind date with 16-year-old Ernest (Ernie) SAMUEL, a student at St. Andrew's College, a boarding school in Aurora, Ontario Although immediately smitten, she wisely decided to connect with him as a friend - while "she conspired with the nanny of the house to eliminate all other suitors," Mark SAMUEL said. After high school, she entered Trinity College at the University of Toronto, graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in 1955. She married Mr. SAMUEL on September 4, 1956. Children Kim, Tammy and Mark followed.
Mr. SAMUEL, who was born Ernest WILLINSKY, was the great-grand_son (on his mother's side) of Lewis SAMUEL, who founded the steel company Samuel, son and Company in 1855, a dozen years before Confederation. He was also the grand_son of Sigmund SAMUEL, a noted philanthropist who bequeathed the Sigmund Samuel Canadiana Gallery at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. After his parents' marriage disintegrated when he was 3, Ernie and his mother moved into his grandfather's house, which was literally a treasure trove of furniture and the decorative arts.
At his grandfather's request, Ernie WILLINSKY legally assumed SAMUEL as his surname. After graduating in engineering from the U of T, he joined the family firm, which was then a steel-warehousing and distribution business, in 1953. Less than a decade later, he was president. He redirected the company into processing, then product manufacturing.
"He took over the company as a $6-million-dollar business and by the time he was done it was a $2-billion operation," Mark SAMUEL said. "He was an enterprise builder and she [his mother] was very supportive of that."
Mrs. SAMUEL, who had done some work as an actress in radio plays, "kept the home fires burning" while her husband built the company, which is now a leading North American processor and distributor of carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum industrial products. In 1985, Mr. SAMUEL transferred the manufacturing and technology operations into Samuel Manu-Tech Inc., a public company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and expanded Samuel into the United States after the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement was signed in 1988.
In the 1960s, the SAMUELs became involved in horse racing after they bought the show-jumper Canadian Club. The horse, ridden by equestrian James Day, was part of the Canadian team that won the gold medal at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. They then moved into thoroughbreds, buying two foundation mares in 1972, and establishing Sam-Son Farm in Milton and the Sam-Son training centre in Ocala, Florida, which produced a number of champion horses, including Chief Bearheart, Sky Classic, and above all, Dance Smartly, a granddaughter of Northern Dancer and daughter of Danzig. In addition to everything else, Mrs. SAMUEL named all the horses.
As a three-year-old, Dance Smartly (known as Daisy because of the white flower-shaped mark on her forehead) ran her way into the record books in 1991 as the first filly to win Canada's Triple Crown, the first Canadian-bred winner of a Breeder's Cup Race and, for quite some time, the leading money-winning mare in the world. Mr. SAMUEL was named Racing Man of the Year in Canada and received the American Thoroughbred Horse Racing Eclipse Award for outstanding owner in 1991, the year Sam-Son Farm netted $6.9-million and broke the record for earnings. As a broodmare, Dance Smartly produced two consecutive winners of the Queen's Plate: Scatter the Gold (2000) and Dancethruthedawn (2001) and was inducted into both the Canadian and American horse racing halls of fame. After suffering an irreparable injury in an arthritic knee joint, she was euthanized in August, 2007, at 19, and buried at Sam-Son Farm in Milton, Ontario
Following the tradition established by his grandfather, Mr. and Mrs. SAMUEL were generous benefactors of the Royal Ontario Museum. His family tradition meshed seamlessly with her interests. She began as a volunteer in the 1980s, trained as a docent and became president of the museum volunteers. Besides hands-on work, the money she and her husband gave in the 1980s and 1990s enabled the museum to complete its Samuel European Galleries. They both served as board members, with Mrs. SAMUEL chairing the board and co-chairing the foundation board of governors.
In the late 1990s, Mr. SAMUEL suffered a head injury while on a sailing vacation with his wife and was in extremely ill health for about three years. She retreated from her volunteer activities to care for her ailing husband, while taking on many of his responsibilities at the family business. Having been a director of Samuel Manu-Tech since 1986, she became chair and also moved up from vice-chair to chair of Samuel. "She was very strong on governance," said her son, describing how she instituted boards of directors at both the public and private companies. Just as Mr. SAMUEL was recovering from his head injury, he was diagnosed with a brain tumour and died four months later on May 25, 2000. He was 69.
Instead of enjoying retirement with her husband after more than 40 years of marriage, Mrs. SAMUEL had to rebuild her life as a single woman. One of the first places she turned was to the Royal Ontario Museum, which as an institution had always been "close to her heart," according to her children.
"She carried on with a tremendous ferocity," said William THORSELL, who became chief executive officer of the Royal Ontario Museum in August, 2000. "I think she found the Royal Ontario Museum was a way of re-establishing with the broader world," he said, pointing out that she began serving on committees and boards at the museum again, including the committee to select the architect for Renaissance Royal Ontario Museum. (She favoured Daniel Libeskind.) In 2002, she was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Medal for her contributions to the community.
The next year, she donated $5-million to the museum, which dedicated its newly restored rotunda in memory of Mr. SAMUEL and in honour of Mrs. SAMUEL. She was also extremely generous to Renaissance Royal Ontario Museum, donating a total of $8.5-million. Later this year, the museum will unveil a 1,000-square-metre "green roof" in her honour on the south roof of the building's west wing. Built with donations from several trustees, Liza's Garden will be visible from the C5 restaurant.
Daughter Tammy SAMUEL- BALAZ took over the leadership of Sam-Son Farm, the family's horse breeding and racing interests, after her father's death in 2000. Like her brother and sister, she had been involved with horses all her life. An accomplished rider when she became president and general manager of the family's horse operations, she became one of the most significant figures in Canadian thoroughbred racing. In her 20s, she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Although she appeared to have triumphed over the disease, and went on to marry and have two children, she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and died in January.
Mrs. SAMUEL's own ill health forced her to step down as chair of the Samuel group of companies in favour of her son Mark in January, 2006, although she accepted a position as Chairman Emeritus. Daughter Kim SAMUEL- JOHNSON is in charge of the family charitable foundation.
Stalwart even after her daughter Tammy's death, she enjoyed smoking and drinking "and did both right up to the end," according to her son. A few days before, she indulged in a last drink and a final cigarette and told her daughter Kim: "You know I have loved your father all my life."
Elizabeth June SAMUEL was born June 20, 1933, in Paris. She died of cancer and emphysema at her home on March 16, 2008. She was 74. Predeceased by husband Ernie and daughter Tammy, she is survived by daughter Kim, son Mark, five grandchildren and extended family.

Former Canadian ambassador got his start as a wartime spy
With dashing looks and a gift for languages, he served as high commissioner in London and as ambassador to Indonesia, Czechoslovakia, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic
By Alicia PRIEST, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Victoria -- It was 1975, and the Canadian ambassador to Indonesia was busy conducting his usual diplomatic duties. Peter JOHNSTON was obliged to host colleagues, visit regional governors, negotiate aid projects, lobby cabinet ministers on behalf of Canadian business interests, advise distraught parents whose children had run afoul of the law, open art shows and attend an endless series of meetings, military parades, state dinners and cultural functions.
Then, in late November, the former Portuguese colony of East Timor declared its independence. Within two weeks, the Indonesian army invaded and eventually slaughtered as many as 100,000 East Timorese. When the fighting supposedly stopped, the Jakarta regime invited Mr. JOHNSTON to tour its new and allegedly peaceful territory, hoping to polish its tarnished international image.
As directed by his government, however, Mr. JOHNSTON "had nothing to do with it." As he explained in his 2002 memoir Cooper's Snoopers and Other Follies, accepting the offer would have condoned the Indonesian takeover.
"But what stung a little," he continued, "was the fact that I was not instructed to do any 'deploring' at the Indonesian foreign ministry… and External Affairs in Ottawa, as far as I knew, had made no fuss about the matter either publicly or through diplomatic channels. To me, personally, the incident was a good illustration of Talleyrand's advice to his ambassador, 'Surtout point de zèle,' or more to the point, 'Keep your head down and shut up.' "
In some ways, that counsel captured Mr. JOHNSTON's modus operandi precisely. With his dashing looks, poise and gift for languages, he made an ideal envoy. Fluent in French, Italian, Spanish and Russian, he could get by in German and Czech and taught himself rudimentary Swahili and Indonesian. The one language he balked at, declaring it too difficult, was Japanese. As a diplomat, he served at the Canadian high commissions in London and Tanzania, and was Canadian ambassador to Indonesia, Czechoslovakia, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic.
But while he performed the protocols of the foreign service with aplomb, he possessed a more critical and less reverent side - all bolstered by a questioning mind and a wicked sense of humour. Undoubtedly, those traits made his life both more difficult and more interesting. "I don't think he was always popular with his senior officers. They may have found him a little difficult to work with from time to time," said long-time friend and former journalist Charles King. "But that was the strength and beauty of the man. He was an un-diplomat, really."
Diplomacy was actually Mr. JOHNSTON's second vocation. Earlier, he had been a spy and security-information analyst, working in counterintelligence during the Second World War and the Canadian intelligence community during the Cold War.
Raised in Toronto, he was the eldest of four children whose father, George, was a Toronto lawyer and mother, Gladys, was an immigrant from England. His mother refused to send him to private school, so he attended Brown School and then Jarvis Collegiate in Toronto. He showed a keen interest in languages, inspired no doubt by his father, who had learned to read and write Russian.
One lunch hour in the spring of 1940, Mr. JOHNSTON walked into a Royal Canadian Air Force recruiting station, seeking to become a fighter pilot. He was 18 and had yet to finish Grade 13. Rejected as pilot material for failing to distinguish red dots from green, he enlisted as a foot soldier immediately after graduation. Sent to England, he was accepted for training as a German-speaking interrogator.
By August, 1942, he was under the command of Bill Cooper, of the First Canadian Field Security Section, and joked about being a "Cooper's Snooper." However, at the time, the term referred to investigators from the British Ministry of Information who were charged with measuring the state of the nation's morale and answerable to then-head Sir Duff Cooper, formerly First Lord of the Admiralty. (The Ministry of Information and its Cooper's Snoopers were much parodied in fiction, particularly by Graham Greene in The Ministry of Fear and by Evelyn Waugh in Put Out More Flags.) As the war intensified, Mr. JOHNSTON was sent to the Mediterranean for the invasion of Sicily in July, 1943. Over the next two years, as the Allies slowly captured the remainder of Italy, he scouted the length of the country - mostly on motorcycle - in pursuit of spies, traitors, collaborators, bogus refugees and other suspicious types.
Although hardship, danger and fear were constant, his account of his adventures resembles the Keystone Kops more than James Bond. A case in point were his experiences at Riccione, a town near Rimini on the Adriatic Sea that was still partly occupied by the Germans. Ordered to enter the town to establish a base and put up roadblocks, the event was celebrated in a 1981 Canadian Intelligence and Security book that reported how Mr. JOHNSTON and a friend saved a military police officer's life by shooting a group of armed Germans.
But according to Mr. JOHNSTON, that's not actually what happened. Entering the town, the two men hid their jeep and bedded down for the night in a comfortable house. Their sleep was soon disturbed by a mortar barrage. They fled the house "bare-assed," wearing nothing more than their shirttails, and hid behind a hedge. "We hid because we sensed that the troops marching along the road&hellip were wearing the wrong kind of helmets. We didn't wipe them out because we had nothing to wipe them out with, our armoury having been left upstairs under our beds."
Nevertheless, his intelligence efforts were honoured and Mr. JOHNSON was mentioned in dispatches. Returning home after the war, he enrolled in the University of Toronto, graduating with a degree in modern languages and literature in 1948. One year earlier, on a blind date, he met Valerie FAREWELL, a Toronto teacher. It was love at first sight; the couple soon married and went on to have four children.
As postwar global relations morphed into the Cold War, Mr. JOHNSTON's linguistic skills and professional discretion became increasingly valued. He worked briefly for the communications branch of the National Research Council, then joined the Department of External Affairs (now the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade), where one of his duties was to analyze events in Africa and Cuba. His 1960 assessment of Fidel Castro said he was creating a "nationalist and not a communist government" and that U.S. hostility to the new regime could force the Cuban leader to turn to the Russians for support. Two years later, the Cuban missile crisis erupted.
As a young child, daughter Celia HUNTER remembers her father spending long hours away from home but never mentioning his work. "In Grade 5, we all had to say what our fathers did. I told the teacher mine was a civil servant and she looked at me and said, 'A garbage man?' I just shrugged and said, 'I have no clue.'"
In 1962, the family moved to London, where Mr. JOHNSTON served as counsellor at the Canadian High Commission. Four years later, he filled the same post in Tanzania. On his return to Ottawa, he headed a division of security intelligence where, after four Kafkaesque years of endless meetings, producing reports that no one read and recommending changes that never happened, he suffered what his doctor diagnosed as a "nervous breakdown."
Upon recovery, he accepted a position as counsellor at the Canadian embassy in Japan. But tragedy struck in 1973 when Valerie was hit by a car as she was hailing a taxi in Tokyo. Some time after her death, he married Rosanne HUGHES, an embassy secretary.
Intrigued with the manoeuvrings of global politics, he served as ambassador in various posting until 1983, when he moved to British Columbia and briefly taught history at the University of Victoria.
In his early 80s, he set about recording what he called "fragments" of his life. True to form, Cooper's Snoopers and Other Follies proved to be both politically irreverent and astute. But as the reminiscences of someone who knew a lot about some very interesting goings-on, it is full of gaps. Friend and former intelligence colleague Robert McLaren says Mr. JOHNSTON applied to have another 18 pages of information cleared by Ottawa, but the request was denied.
John Starnes, the first civilian director-general of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Security Service, the author of six spy novels and of the memoir Closely Guarded, was Mr. JOHNSTON's boss at External Affairs.
Although Mr. JOHNSTON often spoke his mind bluntly, "I trusted him completely, and he was dealing on a daily basis with very sensitive, tricky intelligence data," Mr. Starnes said. "He was a remarkable, delightful human being."
Mr. JOHNSTON's interest in world affairs never abated. In his early 70s, he worked as an election monitor in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Angola for the United Nations, and for the Organization of American States. Until recently, he was active in the Victoria branch of the Canadian International Council.
Peter Arthur Edward JOHNSTON was born in Toronto on September 18, 1921. He died February 19, 2008, in Victoria. He was 86. He is survived by his wife, Rosanne JOHNSTON, and by his children Celia, Geoffrey, Stuart and Sarah. He also leaves his sister, Jane Rae, and numerous grandchildren.

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.

WATTERS, Shelagh Muriel (née DILLON)
Shelagh WATTERS died in Newmarket on June 22, 2008 after a short battle with cancer which she waged with dignity and courage. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Doctor Neil WATTERS, and her devoted children, grandchildren and their families: Douglas WATTERS and daughter-in-law Maggie GOSSELIN, of Toronto, grand_son Isaac WATTERS, granddaughter Doctor Caitlin PEPPERELL and husband Ted BURNS of Menlo Park, California and great-granddaughter Myrna BURNS; Doctor James WATTERS and daughter-in-law Patricia WATTERS of Ottawa, grand_son Sean WATTERS and granddaughter Sarah WATTERS Michael WATTERS and daughter-in-law Terri WATTERS of Atherton, California and grand_sons Grant WATTERS and Neil WATTERS; and daughter Louise CRAIG and son-in-law Albert CRAIG, III, of Rochester, New York, and grand_son Albert CRAIG, IV. Born in Simcoe, Ontario on January 3, 1924, Shelagh was the eldest daughter of Brigadier M.M. DILLON and Muriel HICKS. She is survived by her brother Doctor Michael DILLON of London, her sister-in-law Elizabeth DILLON of Toronto and her sister Doctor Diana JOHNSON of Minden. She was predeceased by brothers John (1926,) Col. Richard DILLON (2008,) brother-in-law Gerald JOHNSON and sister-in-law Maggie DILLON. She grew up in London, Ontario during the 30's on a small farm, and took on family responsibilities from an early age. Shelagh graduated from high school at age 15, worked for an insurance company, and quickly decided this was not for her. She completed training in physiotherapy at the University of Toronto in 1944, and then joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps as Lt. (N/S). She served in Ottawa and Montreal, and then at London Military Hospital, Crumlin, Ontario, where she met Neil. They were married in London on November 1, 1947, and lived briefly in Galt, in Toronto until 1987, and then at the farm in Cookstown, Ontario, with winters in Crystal River, Florida. Shelagh was guided by duty, love and beauty. She set herself high standards, often critical of her own work. An artist in all she did, she strove to bring harmony (at times to a house of unruly boys), nurturing both family and community. She had a special bond with her daughters-in-law and granddaughters, being both mentor and mother to all. A lifelong learner, she attended many University of Toronto extension courses. She was a figure skater in her youth, played the piano well and exposed her children to music. After trips to Europe, Shelagh became a fine chef. Her cooking was an inspiration to her daughter and daughters-in-law, and even to her sons. In latter years, bounty from Neil's garden in Cookstown was preserved for family and Friends. Each grandchild now treasures their own beautiful quilt, made by Shelagh and filled with personal references. She was an avid gardener. A member of the Garden Club of Toronto, she excelled at dried flower arrangements. Her gardens at Cookstown were included in tours. In the early 1970s, Shelagh joined the Association of Woman Electors, attending meetings at City Hall, helping to improve oversight and governance. Later in life Shelagh began to paint, and became a very accomplished watercolourist. She studied with distinguished teachers, a number of whom became lifelong Friends. We would like to thank the doctors and nurses of the Southlake Regional Health Centre for their skill and kindness to Shelagh, and invite those wishing to make a donation to consider the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation (www.southlakeregional.org/foun dation.html). The family invite Friends to visit us at the farm at Cookstown on Saturday, June 28 between two and six p.m., or to send messages of condolence to neilwatters3@gmail.com. Directions to the farm are at 705 458 9135.

JUDGE, Shirley Ann (née HIBBERD)
Social worker, feminist, professor, partner, lover of books, gardens and road trips. Born September 22, 1938, in Surrey, England. Died February 4 in Ottawa of colon cancer, aged 69.
By Helen LEVINE and Donna JOHNSON, Page L6
In many ways, Shirley JUDGE came at the world in an old-fashioned British way. She was independent, courageous and outspoken, but had a certain personal reserve.
Born Shirley Ann HIBBERD, she was the responsible eldest of four girls raised in wartime England. Her earliest memories were of food rations, victory gardens, billeted Canadian soldiers and hiding in the "bomb shelter" under the stairs when air-raid sirens sounded.
A top-flight high-school student who dreamed of studying history at Oxford, Shirley was streamed into social work at the University of Bristol, a course of study "befitting a woman." Her first job was in a mining community. By age 23 she was co-ordinating adoptions for an entire county.
Shirley married in 1963, immigrating with her husband to Ottawa, where she worked in child welfare at the Children's Aid Society. The marriage ended after seven years. Shirley formed an enduring bond with Henry HOMONICK.
She became a highly respected psychiatric social worker at Ottawa's Queensway Carleton Hospital. When the head of her department died suddenly and a less-qualified male colleague was appointed as interim director, Shirley resigned in protest.
She joined the faculty of Carleton University's school of social work, teaching and organizing the graduate field placement program. The school's structural feminist approach fit with her convictions about social justice and women's equality. On the side she ran a small counselling practice and acted on the boards of various women's organizations.
Shirley had a lifelong love of learning. She earned a pilot's licence, was an expert gardener, took courses in retirement, belonged to a book club, and travelled. She was a member of a feminist "envisioning" group - nine women who met regularly for potluck suppers and discussions both personal and political.
She met her terminal diagnosis with true British grit and humour. She wanted full information and choices, including the option to die with dignity. In the end she fought to stay alive, for in spite of chemo, pain and loss of energy, Shirley found riches and meaning in the last year of her life. Dying was a kind of intense road trip in a foreign land, and she lived it fully, opening up about her fears, joys and hopes in a way she had never done before.
Her final project was audiotaping her experience of dying for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. At meetings, at parties, at chemo sessions or alone in the middle of a sleepless night, the tape recorder came out. Shirley loved having a project that challenged her and gave a sense of purpose to her dying.
Helen LEVINE and Donna JOHNSON are Shirley's Friends.
