McEACHERN, Allan Davis (1926-2008)
It is with gratitude for a life well-lived that his family announces the passing of Allan Davis McEACHERN on January 10, 2008. Predeceased by his wife of 44 years, Gloria, he is survived by his loving wife Madam Justice Mary NEWBURY, his daughters Jean WILLIAMS (Michael) and Joanne EVANS (John,) his grandchildren Bria, Stephen, Jenna, Laura, Rosalind and Ian, his brother Bruce, his sister Lillian McDONELL, and many nieces and nephews. Allan was the grand_son and son of pioneering British Columbia families who instilled in him a love of 'God's country', the magnificent natural setting of British Columbia and an appreciation of his Scottish heritage. In his earlier school years he spent the winters in Penticton due to his asthma but later was able to stay in Vancouver and attend high school at Kitsilano and Lord Byng, where he made many lifelong Friends. He spent his youth playing team sports (rugby and football) and swimming in the waters of English Bay, where later in life he spent his leisure time 'crashing around the Bay' in his sailboats Skye I, II, and III. He also loved the mountains of western Canada and treasured the memory of a summer spent as fire lookout above Lake Louise. Allan attended University of British Columbia and completed his B.A. and Bachelor of Law degrees (l950). He practiced law at Russell and DuMoulin (now Fasken Martineau DuMoulin) in Vancouver for 28 years before his appointment as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia and later as Chief Justice of the Court of Appeal of British Columbia. Law was his passion. He loved the collegiality of the profession and firmly believed in the Shakespearean principle 'Strive mightily in court, but eat and drink as Friends.' All those he befriended attest to his integrity, humility, energy, intelligence and sense of humour. He was a superlative mentor to many talented law students and took great pride in his establishment of the Inns of Court program. He was a progressive Chief Justice in that he initiated and encouraged the use of computers by all judges, set up an interactive webpage and created a Legal Compendium for the public to keep abreast of legal decisions. Many female lawyers and judges owe much to his efforts to open the profession to women. In addition to his profession, he co-founded the Kats Rugby Club and was actively involved with the British Columbia Lions and the Canadian Football League for many years. More recently, he wished to acknowledge the important role University of British Columbia had contributed to his many successes in life, and accepted the Alumni Association's nomination to run as Chancellor. It was a position he held with great pride and dignity for almost 6 years. We are blessed for having known and loved this remarkable man. In keeping with Allan's wishes, there will be a reception held at a future date. He requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to establish a University of British Columbia Law Scholarship for a deserving student so that he or she might have the opportunities Allan had.

SAUNDERS, Doctor Shelley Rae (KOLOSHUK)
(February 28, 1950 to May 14, 2008)
Professor of Anthropology at McMaster University, Hamilton. Doctor SAUNDERS held a Canada Research Chair in Human Disease and Population Origins and founded McMaster's Ancient DNA Centre. Doctor SAUNDERS was North American editor of the International Journal of Osteoarchaeology and was elected to the Royal Society of Canada in 2001. Shelley received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of Toronto in 1977. Her numerous research projects, in places such as Italy, South Africa, France and Canada received international recognition and were the subject of television documentaries. Her work in forensic anthropology received considerable media attention and one case in particular was the subject of an extensive series of articles in the Hamilton Spectator. Her greatest love, however, was developing and working with her graduate students. Shelley took great pride in their accomplishments. Despite her long battle with cancer (colon cancer, kidney cancer and pancreatic cancer) and despite having to undergo hemodialysis six days a week for the past 5 years, Shelley continued her teaching and research programs. Her latest book entitled 'Biological Anthropology of the Human Skeleton' was co-edited with Doctor Anne KATZENBERG and was just recently published (March, 2008). Shelley leaves behind her sister, Geri KIRKPATRICK, her brother, Robert SAUNDERS, her two children, Robert and Barbara KOLOSHUK, her husband of 37 years, Victor KOLOSHUK, and a host of current and former graduate students. Shelley has just established a scholarship for graduate students in anthropology at McMaster University and her family requests that rather than sending flowers, Friends consider a donation payable to 'McMaster University - Shelley Saunders Scholarships' c/o Mary J. WILLIAMS, 1280 Main Street, Gilmour Hall room 204, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada L8S 4L8. The funeral service will be held at Knox Presbyterian Church, 89 Dunn Street, Oakville at 10 a.m. on Wednesday May 21st, 2008.

ATKIN, John Hamilton " Jack"
Born August 12, 1928 in Leamington, Ontario; died peacefully on May 19, 2008 in his 80th year, exactly 10 days after accepting the news of the extent of his cancer with courage and dignity - the same realistic way he dealt with every other challenge he faced throughout his life, particularly during his last few years with limited mobility and multiple health issues (to quote him, this was just another 'curve ball'). He was surrounded during his last days by love, family, Friends, music, and of course, Flowers. Needless to say, he was telling jokes right up to his last hours of consciousness. He was much loved and will be missed by his children Greg and Carolyn ATKIN, Jay and Mary Maureen ATKIN, Virginia ATKIN and Keith AMBACHTSHEER, and Jacqui ATKIN and Laurie FRASER; his grandchildren Melissa ATKIN and Mike RYAN, Sean and Lori ATKIN and Peter AMBACHTSHEER. He was also very close to and will be missed by his sisters Jane JOHNSON, Bette SHARPE and Ruth STOREY. There are also numerous nieces and nephews who lovingly remember their Uncle Jack, cousins, a multitude of Friends, and a brother Bill. Predeceased by his parents Edward and Edith (JACKSON) ATKIN, his step-mother Agatha (WILSON) ATKIN his brother Don ATKIN, his brothers-in-law, far too many Friends, and his soulmate, Mary (ROBERTSON) BLAIR, with whom he is now reunited. Always a visionary, Jack was a pioneer in the growing, mass marketing and distribution of flowers throughout his career. He was one of the first flower producers to introduce the sale of potted plants and cut flowers to major food chains and department stores. In carrying on the family business that his father started (Atkin's Flowers, then Yoder-Atkin), he advanced the year-round propagation and sale of chrysanthemum cuttings to North American markets, and was a great believer in plant breeders' rights. His innovation for packaging and distribution led the way for the success that exists in today's flower industry. He also started the direct sales business at Ontario Flower Growers. Known as 'Action Jackson', he was also an avid volunteer in numerous organizations - he was one of the founders of the Cecil Delworth Foundation and the Canadian Ornamental Plant Foundation, a strong supporter of Flowers Canada and The Canadian Horticulture Council, and served on the Board of the Royal Winter Fair when they introduced the flower show into the annual program. Jack has always been recognized by the flower industry of North America and has been given many awards for his contributions over the years. He was also involved in building the Leamington District Memorial Hospital in the 1950s. His interests included having the best garden in town, curling, Kinsmen, tennis, barbershop singing, playing cards, scotch, dancing (even in his wheelchair) and more recently being a Claremont Calendar guy! Jack was always proud of the lifelong Friendships he made along the way with so many people, including his colleagues, most of his clients, and his competitors. His life was about 'caring and sharing'. He will be remembered by his 'power of positive thinking' approach to life, his loyalty and Friendship, the flowers he always had for everyone, and his lifelong ambition to make people smile. Jack's family is very grateful to Lynn WEBSTER, Natalie COPPOLINO and the entire Staff of The Claremont Retirement Residence for making the last few years of his life so happy (and the Residents, too); to Doctor Mary GOSPODAROWICZ of The Princess Margaret Hospital, and Dianne WILLIAMS and all of the very special Palliative Care Nurses at Saint Michael's Hospital for their care and compassion in easing the pain for Dad, and helping his family through this last part of his journey Dr. Gary MAY and the Gastro-Intestinal Team at Saint Michael's Hospital as well as Doctor Carmen MUELLER and Doctor Catherine WONG. Arrangements handled by The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, North York. A Celebration of Life will be held at The Old Mill, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto on Tuesday, June 17 at 3: 00 p.m. While there will definitely be flowers, we ask that those interested in making a donation to remember Jack do so either to The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 2M9 (1.866.224.6560 or www.pmhf.ca) or to The Jack Atkin Memorial Fund at the Ontario Agricultural College, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1 (payable to the University of Guelph). We are setting up a 'Jack Atkin Memories' website - you can email jacqui.atkin@sympatico.ca to send us your stories and photos, and to be added to get on our website announcement mailing list. We will all miss Jack's warmth, love of life, and jokes! It Was A Great Ride!
