MILLER, Ronald " Ron"
In loving memory of Ronald (Ron) who passed away March 5, 2007.
One year without your words, your touch.
Our lives go on without you,
But nothing is the same.
We have to hide our heartaches
when someone speaks your name.
Sad are the hearts that love you,
Silent the tears that fall,
Living our hearts without you
is the hardest part of all.
- Missing you more every day, all our love, Eleanor and family.

BARR never wavered from his desire to become doctor
By Jenni DUNNING, Sun., July 20, 2008
Dr. David BARR didn't have it easy.
A hemophiliac with a progressive form of muscular dystrophy, he had to work twice as hard to become a doctor -- a longtime goal.
BARR died July 3 from heart failure related to muscular dystrophy, a genetic condition that slowly weakens muscles.
He was 52.
He's survived by his wife, Sarah, daughter Victoria and mother Evelyn.
"He was the epitome of stick-to-it-ness and drive and where it can get you," said friend Ben MILLER.
BARR was born in Trail, British Columbia, and moved around Canada with his Salvation Army minister parents, eventually settling in London.
He applied to medical school each year he attended university, but he figured he was turned down because of his illnesses.
"He wasn't going to take 'no' for an answer. He was ready to step out and do something," MILLER said.
BARR received five degrees and diplomas in the 1970s and '80s, before being accepted into the McMaster University medical school.
These include a bachelor of science from the University of Western Ontario, an honours degree in physiology and pharmacology, and a master's in business administration from McMaster.
In his time off, BARR worked with missionaries in Africa, and raised thousands of dollars to send packages of medical supplies there.
He later opened a family practice in Walkerton, shortly before the E. coli tragedy of 2000.
MILLER said he often uses stories of BARR's determination to inspire his own children.
"He just wanted to be a doctor. That focus amazed me," said MILLER, who knew BARR in his teenage years and early 20s.
"You'd call his house and he'd answer, 'Dr. BARR.'
He wanted to be a doctor ever since age four, said his mother, Evelyn BARR.
"It was just one thing he wanted to be, and that's all. He never, ever changed his mind."
BARR was devastated when he had to give up his medical practice a few years ago as his muscles deteriorated, she said.
In his last couple of years, BARR was bedridden and couldn't move his hands, arms or legs.
"He says, 'You know, I can't do anything, nothing.' And here he was only 52, in the prime of life," said Evelyn. "He never complained. That's the only time he ever said that anything was hard."
BARR's father and brother also died from muscular dystrophy, and his sister has the condition.
BARR didn't talk much about his illnesses with Friends, said Monty MITCHELL, who knew him for about 40 years.
MITCHELL said BARR was so focused on his goals that not many people knew his adventurous side.
"David was always full of life. (He) was a lively young man," he said, adding BARR had a great love of the outdoors.
The pair went camping in Ipperwash and rode motorcycles. BARR also took adventure trips, such as whitewater rafting.
He also loved books, MITCHELL said, noting his favourite collection of non-fiction books with gold-lined pages.
"He was voracious for knowledge. You could take any topic and David would be just like a library of information."
BARR even studied his own X-rays when he started getting sicker.
"He really was a very rare kind of guy. I was privileged having him as a friend," MITCHELL said.

Economist was 'great warrior of peace' and sworn enemy of Third World debt
A consultant to three levels of Canadian government, he put out financial fires for the United Nations and the World Bank, and went all over 'a world that is obscenely unequal, unfair and immoral'
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- 'Greed is good," cooed the go-for-the-jugular capitalist Gordon Gekko in the 1987 movie Wall Street. Just three years later, a more sobering motto was sounded by Morris MILLER, who was a bit better grounded in the real world: "Anxiety can be good for you."
We have nothing to fear but lack of fear itself, Mr. MILLER wrote in Peace Magazine in 1990, and self-deceiving illusions can be dangerous. "When surgery is needed, Aspirin is no cure," he warned. "We are living an illusion and must act to counter the global malaise that now afflicts us."
Long before U2 singer Bono's crusade, Mr. MILLER recognized that malaise as foreign debt, which was crushing not only developing nations' treasuries, but their hope.
That the rich are getting richer and the poor poorer was hardly news, but Mr. MILLER, ever the economist, cited depressing evidence. The average income in the developing world was a little less than $400 (U.S.) per capita, he found at one point. In the industrialized world, it was about $24,000, a ratio of 1 to 60. Two decades earlier, the ratio had been 1 to 30. "It has doubled in one generation!"
An even more revealing comparison was between the world's richest fifth and the world's poorest fifth: The ratio was 1 to 140. And one out of five people earns less than $1 per day.
He minced no words: "We have a world that is obscenely unequal, unfair and immoral. We live in a period when poverty is not only tolerated, but is exacerbated." Part of the rationale for the tolerance is a sense of futility: Poverty, he said, is thought to be too wide and deep to be seriously alleviated, let alone eradicated.
The global condition is "deplorable and getting worse." Between a third and half of humankind is not getting enough to eat or clothe itself, "or live in pride, hope, or human dignity. In fact, their conditions are worsening… Not since the conquistadors plundered Latin America has the world experienced a [financial] flow in the direction we see today."
It was a depressing scenario to be sure, but Mr. MILLER believed there was a way out. Industrialized countries had to do more and needed to regroup in a way that the United States, Japan and Western Europe would work together to re-establish some degree of global financial stability. In other words, co-operation.
Put another way, he felt that the days of American economic dominance had to end, to be replaced by a new type of international management that takes into account the economic slippage of the U.S. and the stronger position of its two main capitalist rivals.
As for already poor countries which must service ballooning foreign debts, "they are cannibalizing their economy to survive at a level that can hardly be called living. Is it any surprise that these nations are tinderboxes, ready to explode into rioting and civil breakdown?"
An economist and development expert who worked for three levels of government - provincial, federal and international - Mr. MILLER was known by his family as a "great warrior of peace."
The son of immigrant Jewish parents, he grew up in Montreal. His mother had come from Poland, while his father, Louis MAZUR, was from Ukraine. He was raised not in the storied St. Urbain Street neighbourhood, but in more uptown Outremont, graduating from Strathcona Academy and going on to study first political science and then commerce at McGill University.
He then headed to the London School of Economics, where he befriended another Outremont intellectual, Pierre Trudeau. The two bummed around Europe one summer, and they remained Friends for the rest of Mr. Trudeau's life.
Following completion of a master's degree in 1949, Mr. MILLER travelled the world, witnessing wrenching poverty and inequality. Back in Montreal, he wrote a play, The Flame Within, that was staged at the Canadian Drama Festival.
Following PhD studies at Harvard University, where he completed everything but his dissertation, he began teaching economics at McGill. One of his students was future Star Trek star William Shatner. Family lore has it that one day, Mr. Shatner informed his professor that he would not be making a future for himself in finance, to which Mr. MILLER said something like, "Maybe that's a good thing."
Mr. MILLER teamed up with Mr. Trudeau again in the early 1950s to attend an economic conference in Moscow, where Mr. MILLER was extended a very rare invitation to visit China. Can my friend Pierre come too? he asked. No, he was informed, Mr. Trudeau was not invited. Mr. MILLER went anyway as part of a Western delegation that helped Mao Zedong celebrate the anniversary of the revolution that had brought him to power in 1949.
Only decades later did Mr. MILLER discover why Mr. Trudeau had been unwelcome in China. In Moscow, Mr. MILLER had worn a tweed jacket, and Mr. Trudeau his customary sandals and shirt. The Chinese wanted only respectably attired Westerners.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, however, did not take kindly to Mr. MILLER's travels in the communist world, and they pressured McGill to relieve him of his teaching post. So in the mid-1950s, he and his new wife headed to Regina, where he took a job as director of research and planning at Saskatchewan's natural resources ministry.
In Ottawa for two years, Mr. MILLER helped guide a federal conference called Resources for Tomorrow, which examined policies related to economic development and the environment at two levels of government.
After a brief stint as an economist with the United Nations in New York, he spent four hectic but fruitful ears in Rome working for the Food and Agriculture Organization, a United Nations agency. He travelled throughout Africa and Asia, developing self-aid programs on water, food, infrastructure, health, education and the plight of women.
Continuing with the United Nations years later, he worked for the agency's Resources Development Group and was deputy secretary-general of a conference in Nairobi on new and renewable energy resources. He tangled with the Saudis and Americans on the rising cost of propane, which millions of poor had to use to cook their food.
Where did his passion for economic justice come from? "He must have been born with those views," offered Claire, his wife of 55 years. "The big thing for him wasn't so much the politics as the human being involved. His attitude was that we need to help people not exploit people, and it was very clear for him that there were choices to be made."
In 1968, Mr. MILLER went to Washington to work for the World Bank, which kindled his later view that the bank and its sister organization, the International Monetary Fund, were still operating on the outdated rules of the 1944 Bretton Woods Agreement, which put the U.S. dollar at the centre of the global financial system. To him, that made no sense, but he felt the United States couldn't admit that its influence had waned, nor could it cede any more of its power.
Back in Ottawa in 1975, he worked for the Treasury Board and the Department of Energy, Mines and Resources, and directed a task force on federalism for the Privy Council.
But the World Bank again beckoned, and he returned from 1981 to 1984 as an executive director representing Canada, Ireland and 10 Caribbean countries. The experience provided fodder for his 1986 book, Coping is Not Enough, described in The Globe's Report on Business as "a cry of frustration at the way the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are short-changed by the United States, which is responsible for about a fifth of their finances but has been the biggest brake on the agencies' expansion."
Mr. MILLER warned that urgent work needed to be done to avert a major crisis in the world economy. For one thing, since its initial payment to the World Bank of $635-million in 1947, Washington had contributed only $479-million more, an amount "that is less than the misplaced or stolen weaponry the Pentagon reports each year, or less than the cost of one destroyer." The price of oil was also a factor in global economic instability: "Both in 1973 and 1978, Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries pushed on the accelerator," Mr. MILLER wrote. "The United States in 1979 slammed on the brakes and the rest of the world, like unbuckled passengers, went through the windshield."
He did not let Canada off the hook, accusing it of a sycophantic approach when it came to Third World debt reduction: "There's always pressure to placate the Americans," he stated. "I don't think the Canadian government gave a damn when it supported structural adjustment. They just wanted to support the U.S., who only wanted to help the banks get their debts serviced."
As for asking international bankers to exercise social responsibility, "you might as well ask cats to bark. Banks are not in the business of providing charity."
Between 1986 and 1995, Mr. MILLER led or took part in some 20 overseas missions for United Nations agencies, the World Bank and the governments of Canada, Poland and Mexico to examine fiscal and development issues and the alleviation of poverty.
He spent the final 20 or so years of his life as a consultant on development issues and a professor at the University of Ottawa. He found a haven at his cottage in the Laurentians, where he loved to fish with his grandchildren. To the best of his family's knowledge, he never caught anything.
With current economic arrangements unsustainable, the key question for Mr. MILLER was whether new policies to redirect capital to help poor countries would be adopted voluntarily or whether circumstances will force changes. Under that second option, he warned, "we will reap the whirlwind."
Morris MILLER was born on June 15, 1924, in Montreal. He died of cancer in Ottawa on February 17, 2008. He was 83. He leaves his wife, Claire, his children Riel, Shereen and Leona, and eight grandchildren.

MILLER, Blema (COOPER)
Wife, mother, gifted teacher, loyal friend, feisty pioneer. Born December 14, 1910, in Montreal. Died September 16, 2007, of old age in Toronto, aged 96.
By Jack MILLER and Mary Jane MILLER, Page L6
Blema COOPER was in some ways a typical child of Jewish parents growing up in the 1920s in Montreal. In other ways, she was different. She did well at school and played sports, but also loved to climb through unfinished buildings with her father.
Graduating with honours from McGill University, she became the first Jewish high-school teacher hired by Montreal's Protestant school board. She could not study architecture, her first love - women did not do that sort of thing in the 1920s - but discovered that teaching was a vocation.
As a teacher Blema had many gifts, including a head for math and a heart for kids who needed extra attention. She was firmly convinced that anyone could do math with the right help.
When she married Abe MILLER, she was laid off, like every other female teacher who married. In Cornwall, Ontario, while raising son Jack and daughter Helene, she channelled her energies into the synagogue, volunteer work for local charities and substitute teaching. When Abe died, she returned to Montreal to teach high school, a widow at 53.
Blema did not suffer fools gladly. The school board tried to retire her at 60, but she taught another year. They tried it again. Stern letters did not deter her from teaching one more year. Until her mid-80s, she tutored kids in math. She was still helping her caregivers with English in her 90s.
Always up on the latest news, Blema had strong opinions on events. She disliked cooking and had help with cleaning all her life. She made imaginative, custom-knitted sweaters using all kinds of wools and yarns.
Blema wanted to see both children happily married - with lots of grandchildren. Hélène and Bob KENIGSBERG obliged. Blema took grand_sons Mike, Dan and Alan to the theatre, played board games and generally spoiled them. All children, including her great-grandchildren, delighted her.
Jack resisted her repeated suggestions that he get married. Then, at 40, he chose Mary Jane, another MILLER and academic but a Presbyterian. That was fine with Blema, who became a close friend of Mary Jane's mother, Elizabeth.
In later life, bridge, travel, newspapers and grandchildren kept Blema busy, although it was a struggle to get her to give up driving.
At 89, with her eyesight and hearing failing, she chose to go into a retirement home. She had a gift for making Friends, and her laugh was infectious. Despite her "forgettery" - her word - she enjoyed the company, the activities and the food.
Her last three years were difficult, but she was still loving, still stoic in her illness when family visited, and still a joy.
Jack and Mary Jane MILLER are Blema's son and daughter-in-law.

Man arrested in Hamilton stabbing death
By James BRADSHAW and Caroline ALPHONSO with files from The Canadian Press, Page A9
Hamilton police have charged a 22-year-old man with the stabbing death of Chris MILLER, also 22, at a stag and doe after-party in the city's east end early Saturday.
Police arrested Robert BALDWIN at his home at 9: 30 p.m. Saturday and charged him with second-degree murder, attempted murder and aggravated assault. Mr. BALDWIN is expected to appear in court this morning.
Police say more arrests are expected.
Mr. MILLER reportedly suffered stab wounds to his neck at approximately 4: 20 a.m. Two other men were stabbed and are listed in stable condition after suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
The three victims were among 35 to 40 people who left a stag and doe party at a nearby Royal Canadian Legion banquet hall and went to 239 Weir St. North, where the attacks allegedly occurred.
Neighbour Kevin PELLETIER, 45, said he heard people return to the house around 2 a.m. Saturday. He saw people getting out of three cars. And then around 4: 30, he heard a woman screaming, "Someone's cut in the neck, call an ambulance."
Mr. PELLETIER, who has lived on the street for 17 years, said a couple in their 30s live in the home with their three children. There have been a few incidents on other streets around him, but not on his, he said.
"I think the neighbours are pretty shocked that it happened," he said.
Another neighbour, Ted MARTIN, said he came out at 5: 30 Saturday morning to find police cruisers on the street. "It's just one of those parties that got out of hand, I guess," he said.
A man who answered the phone at 239 Weir St. declined comment.
Mr. MILLER aspired to be a high school teacher but had to interrupt his studies in English literature at Brock University because he could no longer pay the tuition, according to friend Justin BRIDGEMAN. Instead, he had moved back in with his father in Hamilton and taken a factory job to earn money. Mr. MILLER's mother died while he was a child, and Friends say his father and younger sister are in shock.
"Chris was a quiet and really intelligent guy who loved camping in Algonquin Park with us," Mr. BRIDGEMAN said.

MILLER, Peter Christian
(October 31, 1942-March 25, 2006)
When Vikings Ruled
Here is a Viking as you can see, Manly in every way. He rules the land with a stature grand, In a typical Viking way. He was loved by all and feared by some, This most masculine of beasts. Yet when faced with fear, his stance was clear, And always danger seized. A gentle man with strong of hand, Decisive through each test. He showed his strength with stature and grace, And always looked his best. Now the Vikings are gone, only a few remain, And one I chance to meet. He challenges the day, this Viking proud, And never skips a beat. His name is Peter MILLER, A credit to his race. The strong, the mighty, the Viking Proud, A real Norwegian face. So when you think of Viking traits, Remember days gone by. And carry Peter's memory, Never to say good-bye. Peter remains a clear bright light at Anomet Inc., the company he co-founded. His vision is reflected in ever ything we do and we continue to honor his memory with the same integrity, passion and laughter he showed each of us along the way. Peter was a generous, kind, fun loving soul and his Friends at Anomet miss his warmth and laughter more than words can say.

DERBY, Ralph Smyth, B.A., B.Paed.
Director Of Education Emeritus
Died peacefully on Sunday, April 6, 2008 in his 95th year. Beloved husband of Gwendolyn GAUKRODGER, his wife of 67 years. Fondly remembered by his son, Doctor Ian DERBY and his wife, Sue. Survived by his sister-in-law, Alice GAUKRODGER of Toronto. Predeceased by his brothers, sisters and parents, Albert and Olive DERBY. Ralph DERBY came to the Sault in 1952 as the Director of Education at the time the city was entering the great educational adventure that was to continue for the next two decades. It was a time of tremendous growth in population and rapidly increasing birth rate, known as the post war baby boom. It was an age of great expectation, challenge, exploration, opportunity, new ideas and demands. It was a time when education was urgently in need of progressive and sagacious leadership. In 1952 qualifications for a Director of Education were stringent. Both teaching and supervisory experience in elementary and secondary levels were required as well as an Inspector's certificate. Mr. DERBY was the Board's first choice and trustees were very gratified to learn he had accepted their request to come to Sault Ste. Marie. Mr. DERBY received his B.A. Degree from Queen's University and further qualifications from the University of Toronto. He began his career in a one room public school in the eastern Ontario village of Bishop's Mills in the depression years. He became an elementary school principal and later taught and become a principal in the secondary level. He was President of Northern Ontario Inspectors' Association and of the Ontario School Inspectors' Association. He served as an officer in the Armed Services in the Second World War. The wisdom of the Board's judgement was exemplified throughout the many years he was in our city during the time of unprecedented expansion. His leadership was Provincially outstanding as the student enrolment grew from 5,500 to nearly 18,000, and the number of schools from 14 to 49. The continuing advances in curriculum and teaching methods kept abreast of economic, scientific, and social progress. His ability to analyse the ever changing educational ideas and plans, to be progressive while still retaining the proven traditional benefits, to balance the academic with vocational student needs and desires, and to maintain a high standard of proficiency, was of inestimable value to our city. Mr. DERBY demonstrated many other characteristics so very important to our community and students, such as a fine sense of fairness, honesty, dignity, compassion, diplomacy, perseverance, good humour, sincerity and the ability to inspire confidence. He will be remembered for these by those who had the privilege of working with him. Mr. DERBY was untiring in his efforts to obtain tertiary education for the Sault. He was instrumental in introducing Technical Night Classes and Adult Education programs. He took a leading role in both the early and later efforts to obtain the Sault College and Algoma University. He was also active in community and social affairs. He was a past President of the Rotary Club. The Rotary Club awarded him with membership in the Paul Harris Fellowship for outstanding contribution to the Club and to the Community. He was an Elder and a choir member in his church, St. Andrew's United. The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the many caregivers who assisted Ralph. A Memorial Service will be held in St. Andrew's United Church on Saturday, April 12 at 3 p.m. conducted by the Rev. Philip D. MILLER. In lieu of flowers, if it is desired, a gift may be given in Ralph's memory to the Memorial Fund of St. Andrew's United Church, 712 Wellington Street East, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. P6A 2M7.

ZUCKERMAN, Murry (1918-2008)
Beloved husband of Estelle ZUCKERMAN and the late Rayzel ZUCKERMAN, loving father and father-in-law of Alan and Debbie, Linda and Jeff FARBSTEIN, Gary and Beverly, Stuart and Joanne, Mitchell, and Lloyd and Shari, brother of the late George and Arthur ZUCKERMAN grandfather of Leo, Jonah, Eli, Blair, Chase, Aubrey, Chloe, Adam, Rachel, Jeremy, Jesse, Noah, Riley, Taylor, Andie, Hannah, Ben, Sam, Aaron, sadly missed by Estelle's children and their spouses Lori and Jeff GOSSACK, Karen and Steven MILLER, Robin and Elic ANBAR, and Barry and Susan ASTROFF, son of the late Charles and Rebecca ZUCKERMAN. Murry's life was rich in chapters, beginning as a semi-pro ball player in his youth, and later graduating as a dental surgeon, and opening a practice. In 1955, he decided to join the family textile business, where he worked alongside his brother George until his retirement in 1990. Together, they grew a small quilting business in Toronto into one of Canada's largest textile companies, with operations across Canada and spanning into Europe. Murry was loved, respected, and held in the highest regard by all who knew him: From Friends to strangers, he loved people and nurtured relationships, and so people loved him back. His reputation was impeccable. He was kind, compassionate, a true gentleman and friend. Murry was fortunate to spend his life with two wonderful women. His loving marriage to Ray produced 6 children, and along with their spouses, 19 grandchildren.

MILLER, Allan
On Monday May 12th, 2008 after a brief illness, Allan MILLER beloved husband of Bessie, loving son, brother, father and grandfather. Dad will be fondly remembered by his children Sam, Lianne, Willie and Julie, Murray and Susy, and Rivi and Steven ROGUL. He was a tremendous inspiration for his grandchildren, Issy, Max and Genny MILLER, Allison, Amy and Adam ROGUL, and Jacob MILLER. Dad was born in Russia in 1912 and emigrated to Canada in 1920. Although he wanted to become a physician, quotas on Jewish students prevented his entry. He graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy in 1939, and served in the army during the war. He married Bessie, the love of his life, in 1950 and they had a wonderful life together until her sudden death in May 2005. Dad remained interested in the events of the day until his final hours. He especially took great delight in the many accomplishments of his children and grandchildren, never missing any occasion despite the travel involved. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother-in-law, uncle and friend. Dad was always generous and supported many wonderful causes. Family and Friends were his raison d'etre and as a result, our world is a much better place. Funeral services will be held at the Shaarey Zedek Synagogue in Winnipeg, at 11 a.m. Wednesday, May 14, 2008. Memorial donations may be made to the Bessie and Allan Miller Fund at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba. www.jewishfoundation.org

Best buddy to Layne MINGIE. Friend to many. Alfred believed life was a joyous adventure to be lived fully with love and laughter. He grew up in Toronto and spent a happy childhood in the Bayview Yorkmills neighbourhood playing with Friends and embarking on adventures in Wilket Creek. Alfred attended Crescent school from grade 2 to 12 where he formed some of his closest Friendships. He spent his last year of high school at the Canadian Junior College in Lausanne where he fell madly in love with Susan ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. Alfred and Susan married 2 years later. Alfred lived life fast and fully. While in his 20's he proudly became the father of four beautiful children.

For the past 13 years he and Susan have owned and operated the Once Upon a Child Store on Bayview, building it into one of the most successful stores in the chain. Alfred was a large, loud, gentle man, full of exuberance for life. He loved rock and roll, cars and boats, his dogs James and Dakota and diet coke with lime. He especially enjoyed playing backgammon and cards, (gin and hearts) and long, hard fought battles of Risk. Most of all, Alfred loved people. He never put off spending time with those he loved. He was a happy, positive person who saw good all around him. He considered himself a very lucky man and smiled and laughed almost every day of his life. He will be sadly missed by all whose lives he touched. A special thanks to the wonderful people at Southlake, especially nurses Matt and Steve on the 5th floor and social workers Pat EDWARDS and Pat MILLER.

GROOME, Agnes Jean (née MILLS)
Passed away peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in Toronto on May 30, 2008. She was born November 5, 1918 on the family farm near Fleming, Saskatchewan. Eldest daughter of Sam and Isabelle MILLS, Agnes was predeceased by her husband Leslie Jaquest GROOME, her parents, her sister Ivy SMITH, brothers-in-law Paul GROOME, Al SMITH, Bob SMITH, and sister-in-law Iris MILLS. She is survived by her brother Reuben MILLS, her sister Isabelle MILLS, daughters Jean COOPERBERG (Peter), Ruth KURTZ, Mary KAINER (Michael), seven grandchildren Ruthie SHUGARMAN (Danny,) Michael COOPERBERG, Daniel KURTZ (Martina SORBARA), Thiago KURTZ (Andrea BREEN), Anton KAINER, Leah KAINER and Lindsay KAINER, and her 3 great-grandchildren Talia and Cooper SHUGARMAN and Francesca KURTZ. Also important to her were nieces Gae MILLER, Vivian PALSSON, Ariel GROOME and nephews Alan MILLS and Byron MILLS (deceased) and their families. Dr. Reverend Agnes GROOME was a woman of remarkable energy and organizational skills. An accomplished educator and minister, she was highly educated, earning seven degrees in seven decades (B.A., B.Ed., B.Div., M.A., M.Ed., Ph.D., M.Div.). Involved in life-long learning, she took her last course at the University of Regina at the age of 88. Her teaching positions included Central Collegiate (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan), Martin and Sheldon Williams Collegiate (Regina, Saskatchewan), University of Regina, and University of Toronto. Her church postings included mission fields in rural Saskatchewan, Saint_James United Church (Regina), Grace Church in Moose Jaw, St. Andrew's (Toronto), Silverthorne (Toronto), and a short locum in Ft. Qu'appelle. A woman ahead of her time, St. Andrew's College refused her ordination and her name was struck from the roster of graduates because she had married and was expecting her first child. Agnes always took a leadership role in community organizations including the Young Women's Christian Association, United Nations Association, University Women's Club, Health Research Board, Saskatchewan Pension Committee, New Democratic Party (candidate in Wascana), plus many church positions including Sunday School Superintendent, Elder (first female in position at Lakeview United Church). Agnes was honoured to have been appointed by the government of Saskatchewan to the Cluff Lake Inquiry into uranium development. As recent as two years ago, Agnes embarked on a project to have stained glass windows honouring women in the Bible installed in Lakeview United Church. As part of her dedication to education in Saskatchewan, Agnes established several scholarship funds at the University of Regina in the names of her husband Les GROOME, her brother-in-law Paul GROOME, her parents Sam and Isabelle, and plus made a generous donation to the University of Regina establishing the Groome family fellowship in health research. Agnes and Les were a remarkable team; through all their studies, travels, and endeavours they loved and supported each other. Agnes was a true matriarch in her family. She was the driving force behind family projects; everyone was expected to be onboard and involved. She could do anything and did -- wire a home, build a stone fence, shingle a roof, install floors and siding, build furniture, sew, even bake 12 pies at a time. Agnes tackled everything with passion, including stamp collecting, family tree research (four volumes), and land development. Foreign travels were opportunities to study history and were fodder for lectures. Widowed at 62, she then earned a new degree, and embarked on a new career in a new city. Beloved by her grandchildren, she encouraged them in all their varied interests. Later in life she took great pleasure in building a new home (at age 80) and planting 900 perennials on Pasqua Lake. She knew Canada well as she moved many times: from Fleming to Brandon, Saskatoon, Regina, Dunnville, Guelph, Clinton, Vancouver, Moose Jaw, Regina, and Toronto. Funeral will be held on Thursday, June 5, 2008, 2 p.m., at Wesley United Church, 3913 Hillsdale Street, Regina. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 4, 6-7: 30 p.m. at Speers Funeral Chapel 2136 College Avenue, Regina. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sam and Bella Mills Scholarship, University of Regina.

MILLER, Lois Mary (née TOMKINS)
(August 29, 1916-July 12, 2008)
Lovingly and tenderly supported by family and caregivers at Toronto Western Hospital, Lois passed away peacefully to her heavenly journey on Saturday July 12th in her 92nd year. She was the treasured sweetheart of the late S. Dickson MILLER and a loving partner of the late Doug STEVENS; cherished mother of Catherine MILLER (Cliff KACHALUBA,) Marnie (John KOWALEWSKI,) Bruce (Ginny,) and Peter (Celeste); devoted Nana to Camille, Andrew, Scott, Stephanie (Paul), James, Kristen (Andre), Alicia (John) and Stephen; great-grandmother to Kaiya.
Lois's life was defined by her love of family, Friends and faith in God. She will be remembered for many things: devoted to her parents, notable Lisgar (Ottawa) graduate, Queen's graduate (Arts '39) and one of Queen's first two female cheerleaders, a loving mother, grandmother and wife, an activist through her volunteer and professional work, and a woman always progressive in her thinking: a woman of grace and quiet strength.
In recent days confronted with failing health she continued to be independent, thoughtful and loving to family and her support team. She maintained her amazing sense of humour and even while facing her final days she possessed the strength and faith to graciously accept God's master plan for her.
Lois's example of living with integrity, wisdom and love continues to inspire and guide us.
As she wished, a private family service has been held and a Memorial Service to celebrate her life will be held Monday August 25th, 1 p.m. at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. West, Toronto (2 lights west of Yonge St.).
