good hearty laugh when she was in the room. She was a historian at heart,
she felt that history was important and so, she kept up with the family
tree. She enjoyed care giving, which lead to her achieving her Registered
Practical Nurse diploma. You could say that she was like a mother hen
helping anyone who needed to be tucked under her wing. She had moved to
Toronto to help take care of her ailing mother and while there worked in
several hospitals and nursing homes. Later she moved to Wikwemikong where
she worked with the Victorian Order of Nurses and she continued
practicing her nursing skills to many on the Island. She also worked as a

KERR, Samuel Aubrey
It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Samuel Aubrey KERR on February 19, 2008 at the age of 92. Predeceased by his beloved wife and solid supporter of sixty-three years Elsie Ruth (née SANDS- YAWORSKI). Admired and respected father of Ernie (Louise MARSHALL / TYSON), Robert (Angie CHIEW), grandfather to Stewart (Tonia KEIZER,) Mathew (Autumn PEER fiancee,) Jennifer, and Amy PILLING, great-grandfather to Brendan, Ty and Dominic. He leaves his loving brother Professor Donald Peter (Ruth HIGGINS deceased). Aubrey was born in Orillia, November 29, 1915. He attended Oakwood Collegiate in Toronto. Following studies at the University of Toronto he enrolled in the graduate program at U.B.C. (Vancouver) obtaining his M.A. (Geology) in 1942. Immediately following this he was recruited by Imperial Oil as part of Canada's war effort to search for oil in Southern Alberta. After years of exploration with Aubrey as field geologist, Leduc 'blew in' February 13, 1947, changing the course of Canadian history, making Alberta a major player in the world oil market. In 1959 Aubrey was chosen by the National Energy Board as Chief Geologist and the family moved to Ottawa. Following success in the capital he retired and returned to Calgary in 1975. He turned his attention to an intense study of the history of Alberta's oil industry by collecting and documenting a wealth of information. He interviewed and taped many 'oil patch' personalities leaving a large collection to the Glenbow Museum Archives, Calgary. All of this culminated in eight great books (including Leduc, Redwater and Atlantic #3). In 1998 he received an honourary Doctors degree from the University of Calgary and was inducted into the Petroleum Hall of Fame in Leduc. He participated in numerous professional organizations including the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum and Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta. He was involved in the Anglican church. Both he and Elsie enjoyed annual escapes from the -30 degree weather to visit Barbados and Victoria. He continued to be involved with his writing even to his ninety-first year. The family wish to thank the staff of Trinity Lodge, Calgary for their decisive professional actions and care as well as the outstanding medical staff of the Rockyview Hospital, Calgary. Service at Anglican Christ Church Calgary to be announced.

From far, from eve and morning
And yon twelve-winded sky,
The stuff of life to knit me
Blew hither: here am I.
Now -- for a breath I tarry
Nor yet disperse apart --
Take my hand quick and tell me,
What have you in your heart.
Speak now, and I will answer
How shall I help you, say
Ere to the wind's twelve quarters
I take my endless way.

NIXON, Annie McPhail "Nan" (née McLEAN)
Nan NIXON passed away peacefully at Errinrung Residence in Thornbury on Monday May 26, 2008 at the age of 93. Born in Greenock, Scotland, she was the daughter of John and Lilius (née DELGARNO) McLEAN. At the age of 15 Nan immigrated to Canada with her parents and siblings. Although Nan received a limited education and faced many challenges in her earlier life, as was so often the case in those years, she was able to fulfill her most important dreams, those of raising her family and being a kind and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She is remembered by her family and Friends as a wise woman whose patience and forgiveness set examples for all to follow. She loved her home and ensured that it was always a welcoming environment for all and her homemaking skills were passed as a legacy to her children. Her home was always clean, the treadle sewing machine rarely resting as she made and re-made clothing for her family and the results of her knitting and quilting were cherished by all who received her homemade gifts. Above all Nan loved to play with the grandchildren sharing their laughter while enjoying checkers, dominoes, snakes and ladders and many card games. She encouraged her family to strive to succeed by endeavoring to do their best at whatever task might be in front of them. She shared her spirit with the gentle 'toughness' that was her inspiring strength of character. Nan was predeceased by her husband Robert Henry NIXON in 1956 when she was a woman of 41 years of age and she remained undaunted in her dedication that her family should know the warmth and security of home. She is remembered as a loving mother by her daughters Dorothy FROST of Thornbury, Isobel LEVACQUE of Collingwood and Debra Nixon McLEOD of Nottawa and she was predeceased by her son Bill NIXON. She is lovingly remembered as a dear mother-in-law by her daughter-in-law Betty (SANGSTER) Nixon VANDERLINDEN of Clayhurst, British Columbia, and by her son-in-law Roger McLEOD of Nottawa. She will also be remembered by her brother Jim McLEAN of Parksville, British Columbia and by sisters-in-law May McLEAN and Joy McLEAN, both of Meaford. Nan was also predeceased by sons-in-law Bill FROST, Ray LEVACQUE and Dale VANDERLINDEN and by brothers and sisters John McLEAN (Isabelle,) Jean SMITH (Harvey,) May MARTIN (Ray), David McLEAN, Tom McLEAN (Ethel), and Bill McLEAN. Nan will be most affectionately remembered as the devoted matriarch of her family including her seven grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren and her many nieces and nephews and their families. As Nan desired, a family service of committal and interment of her cremated remains, officiated by Reverend Dr. Brian GOODINGS of Grace United Church, was conducted at Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery on Friday May 30 where Nan's ashes were interred with her late husband. If so desired, and in memory of Nan, memorial donations to Thameswood Lodge, a residence for cancer patients in London, Ontario, would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, The Valley Chapel, in Thornbury to whom arrangements have been entrusted.

Police discover third body in charred home
By Jill MAHONEY, Page A11
Investigators discovered a third body yesterday in the charred ruins of a Don Mills townhouse believed to be the scene of a double murder-suicide.
Two bodies had been found previously, after a suspicious fire engulfed the home Saturday evening. The three bodies are thought to be those of a woman, her husband and her mother.
"That's what we anticipate, and that would make it a double homicide-suicide," said Toronto police homicide Detective Doug SANSOM.
Around the time of the blaze, a three-year-old boy, who police believe was orphaned by the fire, was found unharmed by a neighbour after the man received a mysterious knock on his door. The boy was carrying a confession note.
"The note would indicate that there's some foul play," Det. SANSOM said, adding it appeared to be in a man's handwriting.
The note referred to a tape recorder in a nearby car that had only the sounds of people singing in English, Urdu and Hungarian. Police suspect the person who tried to make the recording was unaware the tape recorder did not work.
The boy has been in the care of the Children's Aid Society, but police believe he will be released to a paternal aunt who lives outside Toronto.
The second body, found Sunday, and the third body had not been removed from the townhouse late yesterday afternoon because of concerns about the structure's safety.
Police had responded to past complaints of domestic violence at the address on Green Belt Drive; the last incident was about three years ago, Det. SANSOM said. As well, emergency responders reported a strong smell of gasoline at the fire, which occurred in the Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue area.
Police said the victims are believed to be a 41-year-old man and two women, aged 46 and 70. Police won't officially release the names until the badly burned bodies are identified, likely through dental records or DNA. However, they have been identified by local media as Magid AHMAD, his wife, Ildiko SZAVA, and her mother, Karolyne GALLASZ.

WHITE/WHYTE, Patric Jon " Ric Chip"
I would like to take this time to say "Thank You". But a simple "Thank You" doesn't come close to expressing the gratitude I feel for all the support that I have received from family and Friends. It's in difficult times like these that we realize just how many Friends we have, and how much they really mean to us. Throughout his life, Ric has touched so many people with, his genuine smile, his laugh, his jokes, his stories, his generosity, and quick impulse to help anyone or any cause that came along. One of Ric's most important accomplishments in life was the many Friends he acquired along the way. The respect and final farewell that all of you gave him will never be forgotten. Just as I'm certain that Ric will never be forgotten, because there will always be a part of him in all our hearts. I would like to extend a special thank you to- Dennis and Sheila JOYCE, Renaye and Bernice MYERS, Joe SANTOS, Wayne HAUSER and Karen CURRAH, Gary BROOKS, Ted and Kathy JOHNSTON, Wayne HENDERSON, Pete and Gloria PALMER, Tracy TRUDELL, Kathy CRAWFORD, Christine McAULEY, Reverend J. WHITE/WHYTE, Bill DENNING, Saint Mary's Church, West Elgin Legion and everyone who brought food, sent flowers, sent cards and emails and telephoned. A very special thank you to Hostess Frito Lay and the person(s) who arranged for the "Chip Truck" to be at the church on the day of the funeral. It was a befitting tribute and goodbye to Ric "Chip", who took great pride in his job and who had fond attachments to everyone associated with it. From Branika Savic and the family of Ric "Chip" Whyte.
