DANIEL, Jerry
My Final Broadcast Peacefully and prayerfully, in my 69th year, after a courageous battle at Alexandra Hospital surrounded by my family on June 2, 2008 our Lord welcomed me home. I leave behind my devoted and adoring wife of 47 years Diane (TREMBLAY,) and my 5 loving children and their spouses. Jerry Jr. and his wife Roxanne (ANTAYA,) Terry and his wife Terryanne (CARROLL,) Mark and his wife Sherri (SMITH,) Michelle and her husband Jim (MERRIFIELD,) Nicole and her husband Dany (JACQUES.) I will continue to watch over my beautiful grandchildren that gave me more joy than I ever thought possible - Jessica and John DANIEL, Kyle and Brittany DANIEL and Brandi and Daniel LEWIS, Tara and Mitchell DANIEL, Mark and Matthew MERRIFIELD and "Peanut" Jacques as well as my sister Pat PROUSE of Ingersoll. I have been reunited with those who went before including my mom Delia (GATES) 1989 and dad Naboth 1996. My life has been full and blessed. I was fortunate to love my chosen career in broadcasting which spanned over 40 years. Starting at CFCO in Chatham, CHOK in Sarnia, SJCS Stratford, CFPL London, and finally CKOT Tillsonburg where I forged many lifelong Friendships. I also derived joy from my many years of DJ work. It is hard to imagine the number of first dance songs I played for newlyweds over the years and the people who knew me by my unique speakers. I express special thanks to our family physician Doctor Kelly SHAUGHNESSEY who was a tremendous support throughout and the loving care given by the Alexandra Hospital staff. In regards to my illness I am indebted to Woodstock Urologist Doctor VOGALIN and excellent medical staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre including Doctor Mary McKENZIE and her assistants Grace and Paul. I appreciated the constant support of John LAMERS, Owner and General Manager of CKOT Easy 101.3, Elaine BELANGER, Kathy BEEMER, Peter BAUMAN/BOWMAN, Lorette CRUNDWELL, George MANTLER, Doug OLTSHER, Pat PROUSE, Dean and Cheryl SHEVALIER, Louie TREMBLAY and Luanne WATT. Community Care Access Centre and their dedicated caring staff allowed me to spend my final days at home with my family where I wanted to be. God Bless You. God Bless the seen and unseen Angels who kept me and my family in their prayers. I would be remiss not to mention the tremendous sacrifices that my family and extended family members have made while on my journey. Love heals. Friends will be received at the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home, 246 Thames Street South, Ingersoll Wednesday 7-9 p.m. and Thursday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Knights of Columbus prayers Thursday @ 6: 30 p.m. Parish Prayers Thursday @ 8: 45 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Church, Ingersoll Friday June 6th, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Interment to follow Sacred Heart Cemetery.

Doctor helped pioneer Canadian system of Well Baby Clinics
Graduating in 1938, she was expected to join a physician-driven approach to infant health inspired by the example of the famous Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe. Instead, she preferred adult patients
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Toronto -- Early on as a physician, Elspie SHAVER found herself untangling stethoscopes from the clutch of curious infants. Back then, she wasn't given much choice in terms of where to practise. She was a woman doctor. Ergo, she'd work with mothers and babies - what could be more natural? So off she went to tend the growing families that attended a Well Baby Clinic in an East Toronto neighbourhood.
The history of Canada's Well Baby Clinics is often overlooked, but the work of those who staffed these centres, particularly a cadre of public health nurses (doctors worked there only one afternoon a week) shows an extraordinary effort to stem alarming rates of infant and child mortality. Most clinics were closed by the 1960s but variations exist today, mostly in rural or remote communities.
Seventy years ago, the clinics were frequented by poor women. After the Second World War, many of Doctor SHAVER's patients were among the 48,000 war brides who immigrated to Canada. According to Madeline SMILLIE, a nurse who worked with her at a clinic at Kew Gardens on Queen Street in Toronto, their facility experienced an influx of pregnant women and their small children, sometimes 90 women and twice that many children in one afternoon.
Children were immunized against smallpox, scarlet fever, diphtheria, measles, whooping cough, typhoid, tuberculosis, infantile paralysis and cerebrospinal meningitis. The clinic was typically staffed by four public health nurses who kept things going and handed out information, plus a couple of volunteers who helped calm anxious children. Doctor SHAVER did examinations once a week. The history of the clinics also includes plenty of mother-blaming. In those days, the business of babies and health care was a scientific matter, and professionals could be highly critical of what they considered to be ignorant and neglectful parents, primarily mothers.
Historian Cynthia COMACCHIO of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, studied Ontario's Well Baby Clinics and described their philosophy. "This doctor-designed educational crusade called for the creation of a new, improved, scientific mother, a thoroughly modern mother befitting the new industrial order," she said. "Modern motherhood was infused with the spirit of industry, with its unrelenting demands for regularity, scheduling, systematization, discipline, and productivity."
The birth of Canada's most famous little girls, the Dionne quintuplets, probably added to the highly regimented, doctor-driven approach to raising children. During their early years, the quints were accommodated in a purpose-built hospital compound under the care of Doctor Allan Roy Dafoe, who had delivered them.
To Ms. SMILLIE, Doctor SHAVER was a rare kind of doctor. What made her unusual was not so much that she was a woman, but rather that she spent time actually listening to the mothers as their babies fidgeted on their laps. "The patient wasn't in and out in 10 minutes, that's for sure. She got to know them better from spending more time with them."
Dr. SHAVER was also atypical in another respect. Back then, no doubt due to the sometimes patronizing attitudes of doctors in these clinics, it was out of the ordinary for nurses and doctors to get along well. But Doctor SHAVER and Ms. SMILLIE quickly became Friends and remained so for the next 60 years.
Dr. SHAVER spent her early years in Brampton, Ontario where she lived with her father, Lemen HALNAN, and her mother, Elspie HALNAN, until the family moved to Stratford, Ontario, when she was 9. She was a rough-and-tumble girl who preferred climbing trees and skating on the Avon River to puttering in the kitchen or playing with dolls. "She wasn't terrible domesticated," said Ms. SMILLIE, although she did recall a story about her friend shocking the community by winning a pie-baking contest in high school.
Her schoolteacher father had great expectations for his only child. He steered her toward a future as a physician from an early age, insisting that she excel in math and sciences and not fool around with her future. But his ambition for her didn't always match her ambition for herself. It was a perplexing and unusual contradiction. On one hand, he encouraged his daughter to pursue non-traditional women's work, while on the other, he gave her little freedom of choice and pressured her relentlessly in the worst patriarchal manner.
In 1930, very much on schedule and with excellent grades, she moved to the big city to begin pre-med studies at the University of Toronto. But about a month later, purely by chance, her father learned that she had gone behind his back and instead registered in pre-law. In a rage, he caught a train and rushed to Toronto, where he yanked her out of the program. He presented her with two choices: Either go to medical school and become a doctor, or return with him to Stratford and attend teacher's college.
"In the end, she went where she should have and she learned to love it," said Ms. SMILLIE. "So I don't know what she was thinking when she thought of law. In my opinion, she was a much better physician than she would have been a lawyer."
Dr. SHAVER graduated from medical school in 1938. In that year's graduation ceremony, there were 110 men and eight women. In the audience sat her deeply proud father. He died the following year.
By then, however, another man had entered her life. Some time between the demands of studying and satisfying her father's dreams, Dr. SHAVER found herself at a university dance in the arms of Victor SHAVER, who at 6 foot 4, was a tall match for her own 5-foot-10 stature.
Romance bloomed and they were married in 1940, soon after the outbreak of the Second World War. According to Ms. SMILLIE, Mr. SHAVER always believed it was his wife's careful attention to his heart (he had been born with a cardiac defect) that he managed to live so well. He became a high-school teacher and later a principal.
Dr. SHAVER interned at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in Toronto and spent a year at Women's College Hospital before going to work at the Well Baby Clinic. While doing her weekly clinic shifts, she also began a 14-year career as an anesthetist at the Toronto East General Hospital. Speculating about what it might have been like for a woman doctor in those days, Prof. COMACCHIO said the systemic challenges would have been stupendous, particularly at the Well Baby Clinic. On top of the animosity frequently experienced between nurses and attending physicians, where the doctors tended to demand subordination and obedience from both nurses and young mothers, Doctor SHAVER would have likely encountered another kind of complication.
"Women doctors had to take particular care not to 'over-identify' with women nurses," she wrote. "… Their gender made them 'inferior' to their male colleagues, while their profession made them 'superior' to the nurses… women doctors probably had to step very carefully so as to keep the professional hierarchy intact while also avoiding the nurses."
All the while, Doctor SHAVER developed a private practice. As truth would have it, Doctor SHAVER preferred adults over children and spent the rest of her 50-year career growing old alongside her patients. "In those days, the general public was not too familiar with female physicians. They weren't exactly rushing to them&hellip It took a long time [for Doctor SHAVER] to build up a practice."
Eventually, Doctor SHAVER worked out of her central Toronto home. In the late 1960s, Doctor SHAVER and her husband bought a second home in Brampton, where they spent weekends. In 1972, she turned 65 and spent the next 15 years working part time. But, said Ms. SMILLIE, she was never far from her doctor's bag - she left many a dinner party to make a house call.
Her good friend, Paddy Silverthorne, met Doctor SHAVER in 1983 at the Brampton Business and Professional Women's Club, where both women were members. Ms. Silverthorne was working for American Motors, while Doctor SHAVER was still working part time as a physician. By then, she was in her early 70s and continued to maintain a devoted core of patients.
"I valued Elspie's intellect and knowledge as far as medicine was concerned," Ms. Silverthorne said. "I felt that she had forgotten more than most of the medical profession had ever learned."
In 1995, Victor SHAVER died 56 years after their first dance together. They had no children, even though Doctor SHAVER had worked with hundreds of youngsters. "She was not gung ho on children," said Ms. SMILLIE.
What Doctor SHAVER really enjoyed was the chance to whip her Friends in a game of bridge or a round of golf, or to take long, slow scenic drives to Niagara Falls or to Florida.
Elspie SHAVER was born Elspie Roberta HALNAN on May 22, 1912, in Brampton, Ontario She died of natural causes on February 18, 2008, at Woodhall Park Specialty Care in Brampton. She was 95. She left no immediate survivors.

Al MIKALACHKI loved his Habs and basketball
By Krista SEGGEWISS, Sun., June 15, 2008
In many ways, Al MIKALACHKI was an extraordinary Londoner.
He was the first person to earn a PhD in business administration from a Canadian university, which he received from the University of Western Ontario in 1964.
He's also in the Concordia University sports hall of fame for his brilliance as a basketball player.
For more than three decades, MIKALACHKI combined his two loves by teaching organizational behaviour at Western and playing basketball in the university's top pickup league with students.
"He led a very fortunate life, he was a very bright guy," said son Sandy MIKALACHKI. " Dad's life was centred around his teaching, his sports and his family."
MIKALACHKI's journey began in Montreal in 1933, where he was born to a working-class family. His parents emigrated from Yugoslavia with Grade 7 educations.
Growing up, MIKALACHKI took up basketball and continued at Sir George Williams University while studying commerce.
A great shooter and a quick point guard, MIKALACHKI's highlights included leading the Georgians in scoring for two of his four years and setting a school record for most points in a game.
It was at George Williams where MIKALACHKI met his wife, Dorothy. The two moved to London where MIKALACHKI continued his education. His time at Western began with a gold medal for the highest marks in his class and ended with a Pleva Award for excellence in teaching.
Despite all the accolades, MIKALACHKI was down-to-earth. He loved the Montreal Canadiens and his family.
"He grew up coaching and playing basketball with us. He led us to a grounded life," said Sandy.
A longtime colleague remembered MIKALACHKI as a funny man knowledgeable in many areas.
"Al had a tremendous sense of humour," said Dave SHAW, a former finance professor at Western. "He loved people and loved to talk about many subjects, which made him a fun guy to be around."
As a professor, MIKALACHKI was a stern but effective leader.
"It was tough love in the classroom," said SHAW. "Al had strong ideas and he was very committed to them."
About 10 years ago, MIKALACHKI began a gradual struggle with Lewy Body Dementia, identified by abnormal structures in brain cells. There's progressive loss of memory, language, reasoning and other higher mental functions, such as calculation, but he fought courageously the last year and still managed to play sports.
"It's a miserable illness, but in the last 12 months, he was still on the basketball and tennis courts," said Sandy.
Al MIKALACHKI died May 27 at age 75 but will be remembered by his wife Dorothy, children Sandy, Rob and Jodi and grandchildren Brooke, Kelsey, Kristen, Owen and Keira.

Actor enjoyed long Stratford career and doubled as a gifted drama coach
Trained in British repertory and a graduate of a famous London school for actors, he built a highly regarded Canadian career and founded Toronto's George Brown Theatre School
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Toronto -- Joseph SHAW was a pillar of the Stratford Festival who liked nothing better than to mentor young actors struggling to wrap their tongues around Shakespeare. "I wouldn't be an actor without him," said Alison Lawrence, who was one of the actor-director's first students. "He had great faith in us. He used to say that he would never kick anybody out of school, but that the actual work in the theatre [community] was going to select people."
She recalled a flamboyant teacher whose style sense had never left the 1970s. He'd stride about wearing hip-hugging bell-bottoms, love beads and a shiny white belt, said Ms. Lawrence, who is a regular on the Toronto stage and who co-wrote the three-woman comedy Bittergirl. He wore an ascot, splashed on what seemed like cartons of cologne and puffed at an elegant cigarette holder.
His students adored him, even when he dramatically blew smoke in their faces. He demanded professionalism and insisted they pay careful attention to voice training, movement, dance, music - all the bits and pieces that go with being a well-rounded actor.
Joseph SHAW was born in Lancashire, England, and fell in love with the theatre at an early age.
His first Shakespearean role came while a schoolboy at a British boy's school. He played a woman - Hermia - in A Midsummer Night's Dream. During the Second World War, he joined the Royal Air Force and was assigned menial work until his true talents were discovered. After that, he was put in charge of staging musical shows and skits to entertain the troops and boost morale. As a young man, he studied at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London, also the training ground of Julie Christie, Claire Bloom, Jeremy Brett, Peggy Ashcroft, the Redgrave sisters and many others. In 1949, he won the school's gold medal for acting and spent the next five years appearing with various companies throughout Britain.
In 1954, Mr. SHAW was asked by director Leslie Yeo (obituary, September 25, 2006) to join his London Theatre Company in Saint_John's. "Joe could fit new lyrics to age-old Newfoundland sea shanties and milk all the local sacred cows," Mr. Yeo wrote in his book A Thousand and One First Nights.
Former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation writer and producer Jeannine Locke recalls meeting Mr. SHAW in Saint_John's more than 50 years ago. "I remember seeing him for the first time, leaning against the fireplace mantel, looking exactly like a school boy for the Jolly Boys Annual, with his blond hair and blue eyes. Very English good-looking in a way I thought all English should look."
In 1962, he moved to Toronto to act and direct at the Crest Theatre. The Crest signalled the beginning of commercial theatre in Toronto, and for 13 years, audiences were treated to local productions. Until then, audiences had been entertained mainly by touring companies from Britain or the United States. Among other actors at the Crest were Richard Monette, Barry Morse, Jackie Burroughs, Frances Hyland, Amelia Hall, Eric House, Martha Henry and Kate Reid.
While working at the Crest, Mr. SHAW moved into what was possibly the only theatrical rooming house in Toronto at that time. The house on Sherbourne Street was owned by Canadian author Shirley FAESSLER and it was alive with actors and dancers and such writers as Margaret Laurence, Adele Weisman and Mavis Gallant. Mr. SHAW met his wife, actor Mary SAVIDGE, by sharing a tiny kitchen with her at the house. In 1960, they exchanged wedding vows in the living room. Their son, Timon SHAW, remembers from an early age always being around assorted groups of thespians and other creative folk. "My father had the most extraordinary character and spirit, whether he was on stage or off. His love and fascination for life and the arts was nothing short of infectious."
In 1962, Mr. SHAW began a long run at the Stratford Festival, occasionally in productions alongside his wife. Among his first roles were Duncan in Macbeth and Pedant in The Taming of the Shrew. "He had a kind of elegance to him," said general director Antoni Cimolino. "He was able to play the leading-man stuff very well, but he also had a wonderful comic sense. Not a low comedian, but he had real status and style, so he had a bit of a chameleon in him."
In the mayor's role in a 1989 run of A Shoemaker's Holiday, Mr. SHAW tucked the back of his cape inside his tights just as he stepped onto the stage. "I heard this great wave of laughter at the right side, and it spread across like a wave at a football field," said Mr. Cimolino. "What was brilliant about this piece of business was that it was the pin that pricked the pomposity of the character and made him human. So, as an artist, he found a way to add something to the whole and make it better."
As a mentor, Mr. SHAW was once particularly helpful to a certain fresh-faced Romeo Montague. Mr. Monette, former artistic director at the Stratford Festival, tells a story in his memoir Rough Magic about how Mr. SHAW arranged a dinner with Sir John Gielgud in 1976. The British actor was in Toronto to perform at the Royal Alexandra Theatre and Mr. SHAW came straight to the point: "A friend of mine is a rising young Canadian actor who has just played Hamlet and is about to play Romeo. He'd love to meet you."
A fine evening followed where Dom Pérignon flowed, conversation sparkled, and lobster thermidor was picked dry. Finally, at 2 a.m., quietly urged on by Mr. SHAW, Mr. Monette asked Sir John, arguably the greatest Shakespearean actor of the 20th century, for some pointers on how to play Romeo. "Well, it's very difficult," he replied. "You see, in the first act, you get a crick in your neck from the balcony scene."
In 1975, Mr. SHAW founded Toronto's George Brown Theatre School and served as its artistic director for 10 years. His role as mentor reached profound proportions during this decade.
"He cared tremendously about the theatre in Canada, the future of the theatre in Canada and the future of the young Canadian theatre professionals," said Diana Reis, a teacher who worked with him in the early 1980s. "He built a bridge between the theatre training of old that concentrated on skills classes, dancing, voice, deportment and elocution, to the modern theatre training classes. And at that time, it focused on the Stanislavski-based work that was so popular in America, most specifically by [the American actor] Uta Hagen."
He also revealed great depth in musical theatre.
"Joseph had a lot of experience writing musical shows… he had been doing that in Newfoundland," said Judy Peyton WARD, who worked with him at the theatre school. "He had a great gift in writing musical lyrics [and] he put that to good use at George Brown."
Key to his philosophy was to hire faculty members who came not from academia but from the theatre. A case in point was Ms. Peyton WARD, a successful costume designer and cutter whom he brought from Stratford. She easily transferred her skills to the George Brown curriculum, handing students their own scissors and telling them to cut and sew.
Operating a theatre school and performing fitted neatly into Mr. SHAW's calendar. Typically, he would finish his "season" at the school and head off to Stratford to begin rehearsals.
Inevitably, there was overlap. Toronto actor Dan Chameroy benefited from Mr. SHAW's mentoring while auditioning for a leading role in Cymbeline in 1992. "He was my launching pad when it came to Shakespeare… without his help and assistance, I don't think they would have looked at me seriously," he said. "It was the intimidation of speaking without music underscoring my every word, fear of being out there alone with only words: 'Oh my God, I have to speak Shakespeare.' "
Standing in Mr. SHAW's tiny Stratford living room, he was instructed in breathing, punctuation and how to use his voice in the many ways demanded by the Shakespearean language. "There were so many different approaches to the work that I had never really thought of," Mr. Chameroy said.
Mr. SHAW's own enthusiasm for his trade never flagged. He staged plays and musicals in Montreal, Halifax, London, Toronto and Saint_John's, and in 1979, he played the lead role in Blithe Spirit at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake. On television, he appeared in The National Dream, King of Kensington, Street Legal, A Gift to Last and Ray Bradbury Theatre. More recently, he appeared in The Great Defender and Dieppe.
His roles at Stratford included the King of France in All's Well That Ends Well; the title role in Julius Caesar; Dorilant in The Country Wife; Old Adam in As You Like It; Seigneur Anselm in The Miser; John of Gaunt in Richard II; and Abbe Faria in The Count of Monte Cristo. His final roles were Vintner and Archbishop Scroop in the 2006 production of Henry IV, Part 1. By that time he was 85. "I'm sure some people wonder why I continue to act, well past the usual retirement age," he said in the program guide. "The answer is quite simple: I'm still stage-struck."
Joseph SHAW was born January 6, 1921 in Lancashire, England. He died of emphysema in hospital in Stratford, Ontario, on January 9, 2008. He was 87. He was predeceased by his wife, Mary SAVIDGE, in 1982. He is survived by his son, Timon SHAW.

COX, Nel (née HILL)
Passed away peacefully at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on Monday, March 3, 2008 after a brief illness. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Herbert H. COX, and is survived by her children Joanne and Brock RONDEAU, Brian and Marsha COX and Bill COX and Georgia GUENTHER; by her grandchildren and (great-grandchildren) Colin and Julie MITCHELL (Cameron,) Kara and Yuri MacHADO (Sierra,) Jason and Janine COX (Stephen and Christopher), Megan and Andrew SHAW (Paige and Taylor,) Ben and Suzanne COX (Ethan and Ella,) and Paul COX. Nel was born in Field, British Columbia, the daughter of George and Mabel HILL, and younger sister of Jo GORANSON. Her active outdoor childhood, among her beautiful mountains, included hiking, riding, skiing, golf, and other sports. On a trip east to Malartic Goldfields to visit her sister, she met and married Herbert H. COX, mine manager. Together they enjoyed life in a small mining community with their three children. Nel always loved children and taught Sunday school and theatre. In 1957 they moved to Lawrence Park, Toronto, and later enjoyed retirement at Muir Park Condos. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary surrounded by family at their favourite Granite Club, where they played bridge, curled, and bowled. Herb died in 1991 but Nel continued to live independently at Muir Park until the last few days of her life. She loved to socialize, but her increasing deafness and, more recently, her failing eyesight, made it difficult for her to communicate. In her nineties she had such wonderful recall, she was able to publish a book of her memoirs. Always proudly independent, as her hearing declined she took a night school course in lip reading and carried on. Nel was the matriarch of her family - a confidant of each of her grandchildren and Great Nana to her eight grandchildren. She always had time to listen and was never short of support for her family's hopes and dreams. The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude for the professional and caring support of Doctor Rob FOWLER and the nursing team at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
