Facing fraud rap, United Way official commits suicide
Executive was confronted with evidence she embezzled at least $600,000 from a previous employer, charity's president confirms
By Timothy APPLEBY and Elizabeth CHURCH, Page A10
A senior United Way of Greater Toronto executive committed suicide last month after being confronted with evidence she embezzled at least $600,000 from a previous employer, United Way president Frances LANKIN confirmed last night.
Janet DONIO, the local United Way's vice-president for informational services and operational change management, died while under investigation for her activities at the Council of Ontario Universities, a lobby group where she worked for six years as chief information officer.
As well, Ms. DONIO's chief academic credentials - a Canadian university degree and a PhD from the United States - were found to be bogus, Ms. LANKIN said.
The irregularities were uncovered by the Deloitte and Touche accounting firm and involved the payment of funds - said to be between $600,000 and $700,000 - for services never produced, and which instead were allegedly being siphoned off by Ms. DONIO.
The story began to emerge in March after the Council of Ontario Universities hired someone to fill Ms. DONIO's old position.
"We found pretty clear evidence of fraud," said chief executive officer Paul GENEST, stressing that no other individuals appear to have been involved. Nor were any improprieties uncovered in a second Deloitte and Touche audit at the United Way, which hired Ms. DONIO in February, 2007.
The Council of Ontario Universities gets some government funds, but most of its revenue derives from levies paid by the universities it represents and it will be seeking to recoup its losses from its insurer, Mr. GENEST said.
When Deloitte and Touche began unearthing irregularities, Toronto police fraud investigators were notified, but they were awaiting completion of the audit and apparently never interviewed Ms. DONIO, Ms. LANKIN said.
On the day the United Way was told of the allegation, - May 5 - Ms. LANKIN and chief operating officer Catherine SMITH met with Ms. DONIO, 56, and told her she was being placed on a paid leave while the investigation continued.
"It was a difficult conversation," Ms. LANKIN recounted.
She and Ms. SMITH then drove Ms. DONIO home to her west-end Toronto house, where she was found dead the next day.
A coroner's report said the cause of death was "undetermined," according to a family account relayed to Ms. LANKIN.
As for Ms. DONIO's phony academic credentials - a degree from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and a doctorate in cognitive science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - it appears that the Council of Ontario Universities did not check them.
Neither did the United Way, relying instead on character references from the council and another former employer, Ms. LANKIN said.
"Those credentials weren't critical to the job we hired her for, so we didn't check them."
The United Way of Greater Toronto was established in 1956 and supports a network of 200 health and social service agencies. Last year it raised a record $108.1-million.
Ms. DONIO's previous experience included a stint at TVO, as creative director of educational television, and at the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs, where she was an assistant director.
A member of the Biinjitiwaabik Zaaging Anishinaabek Band, whose home is on the shores of Lake Nipigon in Northern Ontario, Ms. DONIO is survived by two adult sons, Jason and Robyn DONIO. Her former husband, Marcel DONIO, is a justice of the peace in Thunder Bay.
Financially, Ms. DONIO's affairs appeared unremarkable at the time of her death. In February, 2006, she purchased her house in west Toronto's Junction area, for $540,000, and in January of this year she remortgaged the property for just over $523,000.
"Jan DONIO was a respected and admired member of the United Way team," the United Way said in a statement. " We grieve her loss and the difficulty faced by her family."

Two years have gone by since those of us who loved Joanne have had to
face an empty seat at the Christmas table and one less voice joining in
to sing Happy Birthday.
But...two years doesn't seem like such a long time when those of us who
miss Joanne also had the joy of knowing, loving and being loved by her

DOUG LANKTREE WAS A PILLAR OF THE MINDEMOYA COMMUNITY
MINDEMOYA – Central Manitoulin lost a key member of the community when
Doug LANKTREE passed away on Sunday, October 5 at his home in Mindemoya.
Mr. LANKTREE was born on a farm near Providence Bay in 1928, the youngest
of seven children. He spent time working in Levack as a policeman, then
in North Bay, Kirkland Lake and Larder Lake as a teacher, before
returning to the Island later in life to spend 40 years in the Mindemoya community.
His unexpected passing leaves a large void in many community
organizations in which he was the head or an active member.
Doug was a lifelong member and founder of the Central Manitoulin Lions
Club, president of the Historical Society, and active in the running of
the Pioneer Museum. He was also a member of the Manitoulin Planning Board
and the senior’s club – spearheading the drive for a seniors’ apartment
complex in Mindemoya – and until recently was a regular driver for Meals
on Wheels. He was a former councillor for the township and served as
principal of the Central Manitoulin Public School for 23 years.
Mr. LANKTREE received many awards over the years for his community work,
including the Central Manitoulin Lions Club Citizen of the Year honour in 1997.
Doug was an avid hunter and fisherman and enjoyed these pastimes with his
family. He was an active member of the United Church. Doug was a
voracious reader and local historian, and did extensive genealogical
research on the LANKTREE and Kay families. He loved Manitoulin and had
many stories to share of life growing up on the Island.
Favourite activities included golfing, curling, gardening and travelling
with a trailer to locales such as Sauble Lake. After retirement, he and
his wife Shirley enjoyed regular trips to Florida as well as visits to
Cuba, Portugal and England. He also enjoyed two special celebrations this
year – his 80th birthday in April and a family reunion at his home in
July to mark 55 years of marriage with Shirley.
Mr. LANKTREE was known as a humble and kind-hearted, but no-nonsense,
community-minded family man. Besides his beloved wife, he leaves behind
two sons, Robert (wife Shelley) and John (wife Lois-Ann), seven
grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Doug will be sadly missed by
his family and many Friends.

LANNIGAN, Robert, M.D., F.R.C.P.C.
Peacefully in his sleep at Parkwood Hospital, London Ontario. Survived by his beloved and devoted wife Rena, his son and daughter-in-law Robert and Kathryn, grandchildren, Heather, Darragh and Julie and three sisters, Elizabeth, Jean, Margaret and sister-in-law Margaret HAIG. Robert was born in Wishaw, Scotland in 1922. Graduated from Wishaw High School and then attended Glasgow University where he studied medicine. After graduating he served in the Royal Army Medical Corps in the Middle East and on his return continued his medical training in Pathology. Through his long and illustrious academic career he worked in Departments of Pathology in Birmingham, England and Belfast, Northern Ireland. During those years he had the opportunity on two occasions to study in Chicago one year as a Fullbright scholar and another as a visiting professor. Wherever he was, he made lifelong Friendships with those he worked with. In 1969 he moved to the University of Calgary to be head of Pathology at the newly constituted Medical School where he remained until he retired. During his career he obtained a PhD from Birmingham University and a D.Sc. from Glasgow. His contributions in the fields of cardiac and renal pathology were recognized worldwide. He moved to London, Ontario, after his retirement, to be closer to his family. His enthusiastic love of life and learning inspired all who knew him. To the end of his life he was a voracious reader; there was no subject that did not spark his interest. He was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather, he will be missed. Thanks to Paramed for the wonderful home care he received and also to the staff of the palliative care units at the London Health Sciences Centre and Parkwood Hospital.

SINCLAIR, Robert Grey
Robert (Bob) passed gently at the age of 94 on April 9, 2008, surrounded by family. He will be profoundly missed by his wife of seventy years, Irene (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON,) their daughters Diane GILDAY (David) and Marilynne SINCLAIR (Brent HOLDEN,) son Gregory SINCLAIR (Kateri LANTHIER) and six grandchildren, Sean (Jane CASKEY), Neil (Kristi SYRON), and Keith GILDAY (Regan BIGGS), and Nicholas, Julia and newborn William SINCLAIR. Robert was the proud great-grandfather of James, Ellen and Walker GILDAY. He was predeceased by his sister Renee DUNTHORNE.
Born in Toronto on July 22, 1913, Robert married Irene in 1937. In 1943, the couple moved to Montreal, where they raised their family, returning to Toronto in 1987. Robert delighted us all with his passion for jazz and swing music - he was a clarinet and saxophone player, and performed in Toronto swing bands by night in the 1930s, while completing Chartered Accountant accreditation by day. He enjoyed a successful career as chief financial officer for a major, Quebec-based construction company. In later years, he and Irene took great pleasure in their cottage on Lake Champlain in upstate New York, hosting innumerable joyful family gatherings. His sense of humour, unshakeable optimism at lowering his golf score 'next time,' and his talent for improvising vivid bedtime stories are indelible memories. We will always cherish the legacy of Robert's gracious, gentle and deeply considerate nature.
The family wishes to acknowledge the thoughtful care and diligence of the staff of the Wellesley Central Place, Robert's home for the last two years of his life. If desired, donations may be made to Wellesley Central Place, 160 Wellesley Street East, Toronto, M4A 1J3.
A family service will be held on Saturday, April 12. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com.
