KEATLEY, Elizabeth Helen (née GRANT)
Died peacefully in Vancouver on April 29, 2008 after a courageous fight with cancer. She was born in Vancouver on September 26, 1929 and raised in Kerrisdale. Recently predeceased by Philip, her beloved husband of fifty-four years. Elizabeth is survived by her brother John GRANT (Sandy,) her three children, Anne MURDOCH (Brent,) Chris KEATLEY (Tracey) and Julia KEATLEY (Guy,) and five grandchildren Chris, Kate, Jenny, William and Sarah. Elizabeth attended Crofton House, Point Grey and Magee High Schools, before heading off to University of British Columbia, where she graduated with a B.A. in 1951. At University of British Columbia she joined the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, became an enthusiastic member of the Players Club and began many lifelong Friendships. It was through the Players Club that Libby met Philip and began a love affair that nourished their shared commitment to close and extended family that became the foundation of their lives. Early in their marriage they moved to London, England where Elizabeth supported the struggling actors who shared their flat. After returning to Vancouver in 1957, she led a rich and active life; she volunteered for many arts organizations, was a founding member of the P.P.B.S., jointly started a catering company called 'Brown Cow', and co-owned a small island in the Sechelt Inlet that she christened 'Fluttering Gussets'. Always warm and welcoming, she was the centre of many a lively and stimulating dinner party, opening her heart and home to all. An affectionate and supportive mother, she was a voracious reader, adventurous traveler, fabulous cook, brilliant gardener, and always ready to perform a charade in her own inimitable style. Elizabeth was a woman of grace, strength and love. Always a lady, she will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. The family extends their deepest appreciation to the staff at V.G.H., Cottage Hospice and the numerous doctors who helped to keep her with us over many years. A memorial service will be held on Friday May 30, 2008 at 3: 00 p.m. at the Unitarian Church, 949 W 49th Ave., Vancouver.

TAIT/TAITE/TATE, William C. " Bill"
Passed away April 10, 2008 peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by loving family after a mercifully quick battle with cancer. Bill is missed and loved by his wife, Sylvia (née MURPHY) and children Bruce TAIT/TAITE/TATE (Kim), Deborah BURGESS, Michael TEMPLETON (Nancy,) Brad TEMPLETON (Kathryn) and Ty TEMPLETON (Keiren,) along with grandchildren, Jesse, Curtis, Kellam, Cale, Jordan, Taylor, Sean, Will, Katie and Marika. Born May 12, 1925 in Regina, Bill served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War 2 and then received a Bachelor of Commerce from Queen's University and a Chartered Accountant degree. In 1955 he joined fledgling Garrett Manufacturing Limited in Toronto, a division of the growing Garrett aerospace company in the U.S.A. Four years later he moved to the Los Angeles headquarters, but his rising star brought him back to Toronto to run Garrett Manufacturing Limited. He built it from a small operation to a major manufacturer with over 1,400 employees, producing top quality equipment for the aviation and aerospace industries. If you've flown on a major commercial airliner, Bill's systems, among many roles, helped control the air you breathed for a comfortable flight. He rose to become president of Garrett Canada, as Garrett Manufacturing Limited was renamed after being acquired by Fortune 50 corporation Allied-Signal. Bill served on the board of Allied-Signal Canada. After retiring he cofounded Tulmar, a leading vendor of aviation life support supplies based in Hawkesbury. Bill also worked in international affairs, twice serving as chairman of the Canadian North Atlantic Treaty Organization Industrial Advisory Group, and also as chairman of the Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers Assoc. of Canada. Out of the office, Bill was passionate about golf, and had been recruited to play hockey for the Detroit Red Wings before the war intervened. Bill was predeceased by his first wife Daphne (née SCOTT) and brother Doctor Robert G. 'Bob' TAIT/TAITE/TATE. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, April 15 at 12: 00 p.m. at Turner and Porter Funeral Home, 2180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga, Ontario.

LINTON, M. Charlotte " Peetie" (née MURPHY)
Passed away suddenly, at home, on Saturday, April 26, 2008, at the age of 92. Born in Halifax to E.J. MURPHY and Ethel (SULLIVAN,) Peetie was the middle child of five, Catherine and Barbara, who predeceased her, a younger sister, Carol, and brother, Edward. She shared many happy stories of her family growing up in their beautiful house on Rhuland Street, as well as the good times enjoyed summering in Jollimore at "Unadilla" on the shores of The North West Arm. Peetie attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart, where she made many lifelong Friends. She went on to Dalhousie, receiving a B.A. in 1937, and then to McGill, where she earned a graduate degree in Library Science. She loved to tap dance and starred in the "Red and White Review" at McGill. Well-educated and an avid reader, Peetie began her career as a librarian at the Halifax Herald where she worked for the next 10 years, introducing many innovations. She did volunteer work in Halifax during the war including decoding navy messages and editing soldiers' letters. Peetie married Bill in 1948, and began raising their family, but she always found time to contribute to her community. She worked through the Library Committee to help found the Halifax Library. She was a long-time member of the Junior League, and served on the Board of the Victorian Order of Nurses. Peetie was a generous and thoughtful friend to many. Whether visiting people in their times of need, or contributing extensively to her bridge and book clubs, she was always thinking of others. Throughout her life, the Catholic faith was always important to her, and she followed "The Golden Rule" as a matter of course. After Bill retired, they spent considerable time in Florida and Chester, enjoying Friends and family. She became a remarkable strength for Bill during the latter years of his life, caring for him until he died in 2006. In her later years, Peetie was surrounded, at her home on Studley Avenue, by good Friends, her daughter, Cathy, and had the care and Friendship of Rosanne Bedard, Hedy Gavel, and Ina Burke.

Successful filmmaker at National Film Board turned to a life of crime writing
He worked on documentaries and television programs, and got to know the Beatles and Bob Dylan, but longed to write fiction. The result was award-winning short stories and a bidding war over a first novel
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Toronto -- Film producer and record-label publicist Dennis MURPHY worked among stars, but he wasn't dazzled by them. His true ambition was to write and publish Canadian crime fiction, and it was a dream to which he held firm.
Writing fiction and doing his own thing was always on his mind, even while working for Elektra Records and meeting the likes of Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Jim Morrison and the Beatles. The same could be said of his time at the National Film Board, where he had a hand in such documentaries and television programs as Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, Manufacturing Consent and a portrait of the late Oscar Peterson titled In the Key of Oscar.
In Canada, Mr. MURPHY's work appeared on TVOntario, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Global, History Television and The Discovery Network. In the United States, it was seen on Court TV, National Geographic and PBS. In 1990, he was appointed executive producer of National Film Board's Studio C in Montreal. A year later, he became director of National Film Board's flagship Ontario Centre, executive producing more than 100 documentary films. "Dennis was brilliant at everything he tried," said friend Douglas McARTHUR, a retired Globe and Mail reporter. "He had a zest for life and Irish whisky."
Within a few short years of publishing crime fiction in such notable places as Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock Magazine and Storyteller Magazine, he became one of Canada's leading crime writers. Dead in the Water, a fictionalized account of the death of painter Tom Thomson, won the Bloody Words crime writers' award and Storyteller's annual Best Canadian Short Story prize, and was short-listed for a Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Award.
In 2005, he won the Storyteller prize for the second year running with Death of a Drystone Wall, and with it scored one of two nominations for that year's Arthur Ellis Short Story award. The other nomination was for Sound of Silence. A year later, he won the 2006 short story prize with Fuzzy Wuzzy, originally published in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine.
After a bidding war between two publishers, Mr. MURPHY signed a contract last March with Harper-Collins Canada for his novel Darkness at the Break of Noon. He borrowed the title from a Bob Dylan lyric, so clearly some of the stars he had worked with mattered to him more than he let on.
Dennis MURPHY grew up in Dundas, Ontario, loving the life of a small-town boy. But when he was 14, darkness descended after his 45-year-old father, Robert MURPHY, died of a heart attack. Dennis never got over the loss and always feared he, too, would die young. This fear may have explained why he achieved so much during his life.
In 1967, Mr. MURPHY graduated from McMaster University in Hamilton with a bachelor of arts in Irish literature. He was editor of the school paper, a drummer in a rock band and in love with all things Dylan. Bored one Christmastime, Mr. MURPHY convinced a group of Friends to go door-to-door "Dylan-ing." They greeted people on their doorsteps with Blowin' in the Wind instead of Come Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
After graduation, he was offered a teaching job in Ireland but moved instead to New York, where he threw himself into the music business. In 1971, he became the East Coast head of audio engineering with Elektra Records, but he soon returned to Canada and established Sundog Productions, based in Toronto and Vancouver. He produced albums for singers Shirley Eikhard, Christopher Kearney, Ron Nigrini and others. In 1976, he worked at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as director of Ninety Minutes Live, hosted by Peter Gzowski. He also worked on Take 30 and The Final Edition. As a highly successful freelancer, Mr. MURPHY's career took off in all directions, resulting in a curriculum vitae more than 20 pages long.
"Whatever Dennis did, he would just completely obsess about it, do everything he could, research it and just exhaust the subject and then move on to something else," said his wife, Joanna KUBICKI. "He lived for writing. When he wasn't writing, you could see him, the wheels were spinning - he was creating stories in his head."
Of all the genres, it was crime writing that appealed to him most, she said. Several filing cabinets bulging with stories were a testament to that.
Ms. KUBICKI met Mr. MURPHY at TVO in 1980. She was working in the arts department and he was freelancing. They came together over shared misery, commiserating about the abrupt ends to their previous relationships. He had a white dog; she had a white cat. Neither could find a place to rent, so they bought a house together in Toronto's Riverdale neighbourhood. It worked out so well that they married a couple of years later. In 1983, the circle was completed with the birth of their son, Adam.
Around that time, Mr. MURPHY began longing to return to the kind of small-town pleasures he knew as a child and to raise Adam in some place similar. He convinced Ms. KUBICKI to move to an old Victorian house in Stouffville, Ontario He not only excelled at his work but he was also an impressive community member. He became a scout leader, played on a baseball team, organized a music festival and was appointed to the Stouffville parks and recreation advisory board.
He started his own television production company, Anagraph Inc. He did some of his best thinking on the backed-up Don Valley Parkway while commuting to Toronto. But, true to form, he soon grew bored took a job in 1990 with the National Film Board in Montreal. The family lived in Hudson, Quebec, during the famous Mohawk land dispute in Oka, just across the river. Traffic jams were soon replaced with tanks on Main Street and disturbing newscasts. Out of this, Mr. MURPHY made the documentary Acts of Defiance, in support of land-rights issues.
The National Film Board transferred him to Toronto and the family moved back into their house in Stouffville. There, he continued quietly writing. In 1992, Ms. KUBICKI's longing to live in Toronto landed them in a house in the Beaches neighbourhood and an introduction, for Mr. MURPHY, to a gathering of writers at The Feathers pub on Kingston Road. He decided to get serious, and joined Crime Writers of Canada.
He also decided to try his hand at travel writing, and contacted his friend Mr. McARTHUR, who was then acting travel editor at The Globe. He submitted an account of his quest to find the perfect omelette pan in Paris.
"I thought it was really good, but I was afraid I might be prejudiced because he was a friend, so I showed it to some other editors," said Mr. McARTHUR. " They liked it too, and it ran as a travel front. The next week, I had a phone call from a professor at a journalism school somewhere in the southern U.S. He wanted to use it in his classes as an example of how to write a perfect travel story."
Toronto mystery writer Peter ROBINSON lived around the corner from Mr. MURPHY. He was also a crony at The Feathers and the two men frequently talked about crime writing over a pint or two. Mr. ROBINSON recognized his friend's passion and his excellent storytelling skills. He became a mentor to him. Around this time, Mr. MURPHY started to publish award-winning short stories, as well as starting on a book.
"The novel was his dream, and it's hard to get over the cruel irony that he should be taken away so soon after finding out that it was going to be published," Mr. ROBINSON said. "But Dennis was a polisher, a perfectionist. It was hard for him to let go of a piece of writing because he knew there was always more he could do to make it even better."
Mr. MURPHY also published a poem in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine called Final Escape.
"If a short story can be deemed a process of finite literary craft, then a poem is a word sculpture," Mr. MURPHY told Poe's Deadly Daughters, a blog for mystery aficionados. "It also elevated me instantly to the precious (to me) category of published poet, something that, as yet, has impressed no one who reads my curriculum vitae."
Scottish mystery writer Ian Rankin, who liked the poem, sent Mr. MURPHY a book that he dedicated to "the crime poet."
Mr. MURPHY, who until earlier this year taught broadcasting and film studies at Centennial College in Toronto, frequently steered his crime-writing into Canadian history. Without being preachy, the stories often packed a political punch. "I don't set out to make a bald-headed statement, just to write a story with a crime at its centre that has something to do with our world," he said. "I've been making documentary films for a long time and I suppose my feelings about issues are always there and ready (and more than willing) to be tapped."
Many of his killers were highly moral human beings who had been wronged, or who had committed crimes that readers might condone or even approve, he said. For instance, in Dead in the Water, Tom Thomson is killed by a local guide who feels his home in Algonquin Park has been stolen by "the painter" who sees only wind-bent trees and broken beaver dams. The story ends with these lines: "If I hadn't killed the painter, he'd be forgotten, too."
Darkness at the Break of Noon will be published in February.
Dennis MURPHY was born September 6, 1943, in Hamilton. He died June 15, 2008, in Toronto of lung cancer. He was 64. He is survived by his wife, Joanna KUBICKI, and their son, Adam MURPHY.
