KOZIOLEK, Karl-Heinz
Peacefully at the Toronto Grace Hospital, on Saturday, March 1, 2008, in his 68th year, after a brief battle with cancer. Karl was born on December 1, 1940 in Schwaz, Tirol, Austria to proud parents Anna Wally and the late Helmut KOZIOLEK. In his youth he was an avid skier and hiker. After moving with his family to Germany as a teenager, he became a tool and die maker. In 1960, along with his cousin Frank, he immigrated to Canada in search of adventure. Once in his new home, Karl enjoyed many trips to Northern Ontario especially French River, and other places around the world, and trips to the family cottage with his kids. In 1973, Karl changed careers and worked at Air Canada until his retirement. Good hearted and kind, Karl was always willing to lend others a hand, either with a knack for fixing things or a silly joke to break the mood. Who could forget his bad translations of German jokes and ever present Super 8 camera? Karl will be missed by his mom, younger brother Rainer and spouse Françoise, cousin Frank, children Erika, Rainer, Paul and spouses Spencer, Carolyn and Yvette. Also missing him will be his many cousins, grandchildren Renee, Hannah, Nolan, Hayley, Charlotte, William, and niece Natalie and nephew Ralph and their families, former wife Erika, sister-in-law Jean and extended family and Friends in Ontario, Germany, Minnesota and Austria. Many thanks to Doctor BROWN and Doctor WALDRON and their teams and nurses at the University Health Network. Special thanks to the nursing staff on 6B at Toronto General and also 6th Floor Salvation Army Grace Hospital. A special thanks to nurse Joan who was at his bedside in his final moments. As per Karl's wishes he has donated his body to the Department of Anatomy at the University of Toronto. Following cremation, his ashes will be returned to his birthplace in Austria. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, The Salvation Army Toronto Grace Hospital 6th floor Palliative Unit, or the charity of your choice. Condolences may be made online at www.thestar.com. A family celebration of Karl's life will be held in the spring. So long Dad. As Uncle Frank told you, when you get to the next "Raststaette" pull up a chair and wait for us, we'll all see you there one day.

POTTS, Phyllis Catharine (née McLEOD)
Phyllis Catharine POTTS, beloved wife of the late Dean POTTS, passed away after a brief illness on January 6, 2008 in Centre Grey Hospital, Markdale, Ontario in her 82nd year.
Phyllis was born on December 24, 1926 to Katie (CAMPBELL) and Marshall McLEOD, on Lot 11, Conc. 9 Nottawasaga Township, nestled between the hills of Glen Huron and Dunedin. She was the third of eight children, namely Hazel (Harry ROWLEY,) Don (Betty,) Jean (Joe YAGER,) Marion (William GORDON,) Charles (Maureen,) Mildred (James WALKER) and Helen (Ronald WRIGHT.)
Phyllis earned her education at S.S.#16 Nottawasaga, Glen Huron, Ontario, writing her entrance in Singhampton. After completing school she would go to work at Dunedin General Store. She worked in the homes of the Bowerman's and Sherlock METHERAL's before venturing off to Collingwood to work in Dominion Woolens Textiles Peerless factory which made denim products; and Woolworth Department Store. During that time she boarded at the homes of the Aikins', Hornsby's, Martin's and Wilson's.
Phyllis married Wallace Dean POTTS on October 15, 1955 in Dunedin Knox Presbyterian Church, with a reception in Stayner. A honeymoon was enjoyed in Niagara Falls and also a few days in Northern Ontario.

A year has past
And our memories are all that last.
A man who was approachable, understanding and caring
A true farmer with his work boots, always wearing
He was the real thing.
Wisdom, knowledge, guidance, dedication and laughter are the things he would bring with whatever he did, to whomever he met, and wherever he went.
This is the type of man that is hard to find and we will remember
He was a man that we know and love
A Father, Grandfather, Mentor and Friend,
Robert Kenneth WALKER was all the above.

With a wrist shot 'like a bullet,' she played hockey for 73 years
There's longevity in sport and then there was the veteran from Bala, Ontario, who competed for most of the 116 years that Canadian women have been playing organized hockey
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
It was on a frigid windswept lake in central Ontario's Muskoka region where Mickey WALKER's parents strapped a pair of bobskates to her tiny feet when she was three years old. As she grew, the girl played shinny with her father and four big brothers. She learned to stickhandle quickly. "If I didn't," she would recall, "I never would have had the puck."
At 12, Ms. WALKER joined her first hockey team with her brother's hand-me-down skates, an old stick (a new one cost 25 cents), and magazines wrapped around her shins for protection. She was 73 when the Ontario Women's Hockey Association recognized her as the oldest woman in Canada still playing, and 85 when she finally stopped skating in regular Monday night scrimmages at the arena in her native Bala, Ontario
She twice contested the Canadian women's championship in the 1930s, and pioneered the growth and development of hockey for girls and women. "She was so dedicated to women's hockey," remarked her friend of 25 years, Hazel McCALLION, the irrepressible mayor of Mississauga who's leading an effort to preserve Ms. WALKER's small mountain of hockey memorabilia. "She always encouraged young girls to get involved."
Ms. WALKER so loved the clean way women played that she spoke out against the violence in today's professional game every chance she could. "These young women play the game the way it should be played - without violence," she told The Muskokan newspaper in 1994. "I hate the violence of the National Hockey League! [Commentator] Don Cherry and the National Hockey League players who promote and play violent hockey should pay attention to those women.
"Great hockey players over the years, whether men or women, have never been violent. Only the goons who can't play the game and are out to injure the great players are violent. They should be barred from the game."
Little got her dander up like Mr. Cherry. "All he does is promote violence in the hockey telecasts and he makes videos out of them and sells them," she huffed in the Muskoka Sun in 1993. (Attempts to reach Mr. Cherry for comment were unsuccessful.)
Her disdain for violence and concern for women and children extended beyond hockey. Over several summers in Bala, she was known for sporting a sweatshirt emblazoned with the words: "My name is Mickey WALKER and I abhor mental, physical and sexual abuse against women and children. It has to be stopped!" She was also a fierce supporter of the death penalty.
She came into the world as Mary WALKER, the youngest of eight children born to Ada Berry WALKER and Captain John WALKER, who worked on Imperial Oil supply boats on the Great Lakes. The clan's Muskoka roots went back to the 1860s (Walker's Point bears the family name). The "Mickey" moniker stuck after young Mary endlessly sang a popular song she learned from the radio: "Mickey, pretty Mickey."
Her athletic skills came naturally. "We were a sports-oriented family," she recalled. "My mother was a beautiful skater and was still skating at 65. My father was a good hockey player well past the age of 50. So, hockey and sports just came naturally to me."
She also excelled at baseball and curling, and canoed well into her 80s.
Ms. WALKER began playing for the Bala girls' team in 1930. Practices were Friday at 4 p.m., and young Mickey so looked forward to them that she devised a way to get out of school early to get to the arena before anyone: She'd begin talking to someone in class until the teacher would holler, "Mary WALKER - out!"
That worked until the principal saw her scurrying along with her skates and stick before school was over. The next time the teacher spied his talkative pupil, she was kept for a half-hour after class.
"Well, that cured me," Ms. WALKER recalled in the 1995 history of women's hockey in Canada, Proud Past, Bright Future, by Brian McFarlane. "I never tried my little trick to get to the arena early ever again."
In 1934, Ms. WALKER's cousin returned to Bala after a stint in the semi-pro leagues in the United States, and joined the men's team in Bracebridge, Ontario, about 50 kilometres away. When he heard that the women's squad in nearby Bracebridge needed players, he told them about Ms. WALKER, who soon got an offer, accompanied by room and board.
When a teammate noticed that the toe of one of Ms. WALKER's skates was worn through, with her sock sticking out, she marched Mickey to her father's hardware store, where Ms. WALKER was handed a pair of $5 CCMs. They were the first new skates she'd ever owned.
She soon developed into her playing height and weight - 5 feet 8 inches, 130 pounds - and in her first year with Bracebridge, played for the national championship against the legendary Preston Rivulettes. The old Bracebridge arena was packed to the rafters. Ms. WALKER and her teammates had never played before such a large crowd and were so nervous, "it took us most of the first period to settle down," she told the Ice Times newspaper in 1991. The fearsome Preston girls, who reigned as champs for 10 years, were used to crowds and won the game 3-1 to retain their title.
Ms. WALKER and a group of Bala girls joined the team in Gravenhurst, about 15 kilometres down the road, for the following season, and again faced the Rivulettes for the national crown. The 1935 outdoor game was a disaster. For one thing, rain had dumped more than two centimetres of water onto the ice surface. "Have you ever tried to stickhandle on water?" Ms. WALKER later pondered. "The puck won't go anywhere."
For another, the champs had singled out Ms. WALKER as the only real threat on the opposing team. They identified her as the one whose wavy hair curled with perspiration (this was before helmets). Cries of "Get Curly!" could be heard from fans and the Preston bench.
Soon, the Rivulettes' big Marm Schmuck came barrelling down a wing straight at Ms. WALKER. " Step into her, Mickey! Step into her!" yelled her brother, Reg, from the stands. She complied, and both went down, but not before the Preston player's stick smashed Ms. WALKER across the nose and left her with two black eyes. "It wasn't an accident," she said, years later. A scar across the bridge of her nose was a lifelong souvenir.
As if that wasn't bad enough, an irate fan tried to swat Ms. WALKER with an umbrella every time she skated by. This time, her team lost 9-1, and the wild hit cemented her distaste for violence in hockey.
The Bracebridge and Gravenhurst teams folded and it was back to Bala until the Second World War broke out. At age 22, Ms. WALKER moved to Toronto to work at a small-arms plant that made Lee-Enfield rifles. Among 7,000 employees, she was soon picked among only a half dozen women to work in the "tool room," where she operated her own machine and earned the resentment of the men. "Girls in the tool room," she later mused. "Unheard of."
Two-and-a-half years later, she married a plant engineer and moved to Mississauga, where she played pickup games on the lake and in backyard rinks. Her daughter, Launi BANNISTER, a onetime figure skater, laughs heartily when asked whether she ever joined in. "Oh God, no! I didn't know what to do with a hockey stick!" Her mother was always chosen first and always shamed the guys with nimble skating and stick handling, and a deadly wrist shot that was "like a bullet."
But the story gets a little murky here. All her family will divulge is that Ms. WALKER endured back-to-back abusive marriages, both ending in divorce. She returned to Bala, alone, at 64.
She dived back into hockey, coaching a girls' team and captaining the Young Tymers, a squad of women over 35. She also started the Ice Girls, who met every Monday night at the arena for informal games. "There were no hockey programs for women or girls," she said about Bala. "So I started one. I'm trying to teach them that hockey is fun."
That's a lesson Ann KNIGHT learned. "She taught us how to stickhandle, how to steal the puck and how to love the game," said Ms. KNIGHT, who played alongside Ms. WALKER for a dozen years.
When Ms. WALKER turned 75, former Toronto Maple Leaf great Darryl Sittler was among dozens of people who sent her birthday greetings. She carried fan mail in her purse from Japan, Australia and the Netherlands.
In gratitude to her boosterism, the Ontario Women's Hockey Association in 1993 inaugurated the Mickey Walker Most Sportsmanlike Award. Ms. WALKER watched the Ontario Women's Hockey Association's ranks swell from a few thousand in 1975, the year it was founded, to about 40,000 players on 2,300 teams today, according to Fran RIDER, the association's executive director.
She loved the fact that women's hockey caught on globally, especially in 1990, the year of the first Women's World Championship, and 1998, when it was first played as an Olympic event. "You don't know how happy I am to see how far women's hockey has progressed," she enthused. "We've got just great players. They can do it all."
At the 1997 world championships in Kitchener, Ontario, she was interviewed by CBS television. The clip caught the eye of the late Charles Schultz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip and an avid hockey fan who had staged the Snoopy Senior Annual World Hockey Tournament in California every year. He sent Ms. WALKER an invitation to play on his team (the 75- to 80-year-olds) but she was battling the flu and couldn't go.
But she was well enough to show up at the 2000 world championship in Mississauga decked out in full hockey paraphernalia, and with her face painted red and white.
Incredibly, Ms. WALKER chain-smoked, starting at 25, and quitting only two years ago after a bout of pneumonia.
She died four days before her namesake trophy was awarded to four-time world champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Jennifer Botterill, who helped power the Mississauga Chiefs to the 2008 Esso women's national club championship in Charlottetown this month.
Mickey WALKER was born Mary Pearl WALKER in Bala, Ontario, on January 18, 1918. She died there on March 11, 2008 of natural causes. She was 90. She is survived by her daughter, Launi BANNISTER, son Stephen KNIPFEL and grand_son Joseph.

PACE, Elizabeth Deans " Betty" (née WAUGH)
(July 6, 1921-April 20, 2008)
Peacefully slipped away after a valiant fight against Leukemia, on Sunday, April 20, 2008, at Victoria Hospital, London. Loving wife of the late Doctor W.E. PACE. R.N. Winnipeg Class of '45, Mother of 6, Genealogist, Abstract Artist and fascinating friend to many. Betty lived her 86 years of life on this earth to the fullest with spirit, fire and great style and will live forever in the hearts of her children, grandchildren and great-grand_son: Anne and Harry WALKER of Burlington with children Jennifer and husband Steven SMITH (and young son William,) Lindsay and David; Captain John and Sheilagh PACE of Richmond, British Columbia with children Jessica and Kaitlin; Doctor Ron and Ellen PACE of Waterloo with children Michael and Alison; Mary (PACE) and Roy FRENCH of Toronto with son Alex (PACE) and daughters Jennifer and Katie; Allan PACE and Lin WARD of Orangeville with son Taylor; and Carla Louise PACE of Vancouver. Cherished sister of the late Richard WAUGH and his wife Pat, cousin to Alex WAUGH and his partner Jerry DEE, and Pat (WAUGH) ETTER of Arizona, and much loved Aunt to her many WAUGH nieces and nephews. Born in Antwerp, Belgium, Betty moved with her family back to Winnipeg where her forefathers pioneered the Red River Settlement. It was there that Betty graduated as an R.N. and where she met and married the love of her life, Bill PACE. They settled in London, Ontario and enjoyed the summers in Muskoka, autumn canoe trips in Algonquin Park, and their beloved Lake Kawagama camp. Together they founded a family of nature-lovers, bird watchers, driftwood walkers, amateur biologists, paddlers and all with just a touch of Betty's unique perspective on the natural world. Throughout her life Betty steeped herself in the history and mystique of her pioneering past and, thanks to her love of genealogy, all of her children shared in the dramatic stories of their collective past through the WAUGH / MOWAT line. Betty was the consummate letter writer and her distinctive cursive handwriting on weekly letters will be missed by many. Always creative, a true turning point for Betty was attending H.B. Beal art classes and becoming part of a devoted group of art aficionados. The creative freedom of abstraction in watercolour, oils and acrylic was perfect for expressing her passionate spirit. She loved colour and her many works showed off her bold dramatic flair. She approached her art as she did her life, with great zest and energy, and right to the end rose to the challenge of one last small canvas with her signature theme, a graceful swan. Betty's passionate temperament fueled her vibrant art, her approach to gardening, baking and cooking, and also her fierce love and concern for her husband, family, Friends and neighbours. She had her own sense of style, whether in the kitchen, the garden or at a party, loved hats and fine shoes, and spread a lifetime of joy with her beautiful smile. Friends may call on Friday, April 25 from 7-9 p.m. at the James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 Saint_James Street at Richmond, London, where the funeral service will be conducted on Saturday, April 26, at 2 p.m. As flowers of all types were a focus in her life and art, floral tributes are always appreciated by Betty and her family, or a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, 480 University Avenue, Suite 1502, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1V2.

GORRIE, Wayne Allen
With great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Wayne on the nineteenth of May 2008. The adored and cherished husband of Sue and dear and much loved father of Jason. Remembered with love by step-mother Shirley of Sarnia, Aunts Vey NESDALE (Frank) of Mississauga, Grace COMPTON of Truro and many cousins in Ontario, British Columbia and Nova Scotia. Most loved brother-in-law to Annette WALKER (Geoff.) Adored uncle to Mark WALKER (Sally) and Godfather to Paul WALKER (Anya) and Sue's family in England. Predeceased by his mother Doris (née RUDD) 1967, father Donald (1995) and sister Carolyn (1967). Wayne was raised in Sarnia and attended the University of Western Ontario's Richard Ivey School of Business graduating in 1970. He enjoyed a successful career in the footwear industry. The 'Shoeman' will be sorely missed by Friends, colleagues and business associates in Canada and abroad. Wayne lived life to the fullest. His passion for family, nature, and hockey complemented a successful career, yet he always had time for those less fortunate. Wayne enriched all of our lives with his intelligence, wit and guidance and touched all with the warmth of his smile and his caring personality. Just watching the way you live your life has deeply affected the way we try to live ours. There are so many things we have learned from you and so much about you we love and admire. Not only have you been a caring person but also a wonderful teacher who has taught us some of life's most important lessons through the beautiful example you give. You will live in our hearts forever. The family is grateful to Sue's Air Canada family who has been tremendously supportive. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Islington and Kipling) on Sunday, May 25th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Mass will be celebrated on Monday, May 26, 2008 at 11 a.m. from Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 3055 Bloor Street West (west of Royal York Rd.). Interment at a later date. A lunch reception will follow at 1: 30 p.m. at Lambton Golf and Country Club, 100 Scarlett Rd., Toronto.
