And we long to see his dear face,
But the river flows between
Someday, sometime we shall see
The face we loved so well,
Someday we'll clasp his hand,
And never say farewell.
Always in our thoughts, forever in our hearts.
Beulah and family

Faced with not being able to drive she purchased a 'mobility scooter'! She embraced 'scooter life' with gusto. The DVD: 'Betty Rides Again' celebrated her success.

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

ROBERTS, Mary Elizabeth "Betty" (née McALPINE) (1921-2008)
Passed away, with family at her side, at Saint_Joseph's Health Centre, March 7th, 2008. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, passionate amateur entertainer, artist, skilled Bridge and Scrabble player and bonne vivante. She often said that she was named after two Queens and became affectionately known to her family as the Monarch. She is the beloved wife of 61 years to Cy ROBERTS, (predeceased,) loving mother of Bruce and wife Therese of Toronto, and Liz ROBERTS of Perth, Australia, dear sister of Marjorie RUSSELL of Vancouver. She approached life's challenges with a determined spirit. She often said "I'll find a way or make one". She made a successful transition to independent living after Cy's passing. After a stroke a year ago, she was so well loved by all her caregivers that she was able to make the journey from Hospital to Long Term Care then to a Retirement Home! Faced with not being able to drive she purchased a "mobility scooter"! She embraced "scooter life" with gusto. The DVD: "Betty Rides Again" celebrated her success. She always focused on what she had gained not on what she lost. Mom's positive spirit was a godsend for her family and an inspiration to everyone. A private celebration of Mom's life will be held for Friends and family at Chartwell Scarlett Heights, 4005 Eglinton Ave., Toronto on her birthday Wednesday, March 26th, 2008 from 2-4 p.m. Daughter Liz will celebrate Mom's Life in Perth, Australia on the same date.

The family would like to thank Doctor and Mrs. SHKLAR, and the caring staff at Saint_Joseph's Health Centre, Extendicare Brampton and Chartwell Scarlett Heights.
