SPROULE, Flora Vivian (née McROBERTS)
In loving memory of Flora Vivian (McROBERTS) SPROULE who passed away at Hillsdale Estates, Oshawa, on Sunday, April 27, 2008 in her 98th year. Flora, daughter of Gertrude (BRUCE) and Herbert McROBERTS, beloved wife of Harold SPROULE, loving mother of Catherine and son-in-law Elliott BEHARRELL, loving grandmother of Oonagh, Aaron and his wife Laura, and thrilled great-grandmother of Alexander.
Flora was born August 27, 1910 at Tyrone, Ontario, and graduated from Tyrone Public School, Oshawa Collegiate, Toronto Normal School, and The University of Toronto. Before her marriage in 1944, she taught at Maxwell, Cederdale, and Albert Street Schools in Oshawa. She was involved in The Victorian Order of Nurses, Third Oshawa Brownies and Guides, University Women's Club (charter member), and St Andrew's United Church. Travelling, reading, cottage life, gardening, playing bridge and piano brought Flora great delight, but the greatest joy came from close Friends and her beloved family- her grandmothers, parents, aunts, uncles, thirty-nine first cousins, brothers Bruce and Stewart, and their families: Mary McROBERTS, Pam McROBERTS and Neil, Alanna and Brynn OSTVIK, Bob and Susanne, Corey, and Patrick McROBERTS, Donald, Christine, and Mark McROBERTS, Cecil SPROULE, Jim and Marylyn SPROULE, John and Wiebke, Haldon, Dana, and Kelsey SPROULE, Debi SPROULE and George, Taryn, and Breanne SCOTT, Dorcas FULTON and Donald, Nick and Tony MORRISH.
Great thanks to Sheryl WINACOTT, Jan MADSEN, and the teams at Hillsdale Estates for their compassionate care, conversation and laughter. Thanks to Flora's dear neighbours on Primrose Path and to their families for their cheer. You all made a caring community for Flora and her family.
A celebration of Flora's life will be included in a memorial service in the Worship Centre of Hillsdale Estates, Oshawa, on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. Interment has taken place.

PLANK, James Wilfred
Heard his name on February 29, 2008. His release from earthly pain was welcome and well prepared as his loved ones were gifted with time to acknowledge and share their love and admiration for this first-class man - a gentleman and a scholar, Jim modeled a life of strong Christian values, solid family ideals, and a deep work ethic. His joy was found in his love of the Lord, his lifelong sweetheart, his family, great literature, and fine works of music. Jim had the ability to inspire those around him to rise to greater heights morally, intellectually and spiritually, challenging us all to follow our own paths. His impact was felt by many after 34 years of teaching - many of these at Herman Collegiate Institute in Windsor. And, he lent comfort to many through his years of Pastoral Care in jails and hospitals, and his Elder work in his churches. His careers included selling subscriptions to Liberty magazine as a young boy, reining in run-away horses on his 2nd job as milkman, teaching and volunteering with the Alzheimer Society. Born on October 29, 1930 in London, Ontario, Jim spent most of his school years there before moving with his parents to a farm in Merlin, Ontario. Jim enjoyed a blessed and rich childhood. He will be dearly missed by his sisters Audrey LUMLEY (John,) and Marion WINDELL. He is predeceased by his parents Laura and Fred PLANK, his sister Helen ZANIER and his brother Fredrick PLANK. Jim takes temporary leave from his wife of 53 years, Mildred PLANK and his four children - Cynthia MORRIS, Grant PLANK (Linda PLANK), Amy ROBINSON (Claude ROBINSON) and Jennifer PLANK (Michael WATTS.) He is well loved by his grandchildren: Nicole PLANK, Jennilee PINO (Brad), Benjamin ROBINSON, Andrew MORRIS, Kimberly PLANK (Eduardo), Patrick ROBINSON, Nicholas ROBINSON, Helen WATTS, Dakota ROBINSON, Emma WATTS, Nakita ROBINSON, and his Great-Grandchildren: Lucca CONTE, Amilia PINO, Ella PLANK. We invite you to share our tears and joys in celebrating the life of Jim PLANK through your prayers of thanksgiving for a life well lived. At the request of James, there will be no funeral or public memorial service - his spirit lives on when you gather for prayer, raise your voice in song, or are moved by fine prose. Donations to the Foundation of Chatham Kent Health Alliance-Magnetic Resonance Imager Campaign (http://www.foundationckha.com/mri/mri.html) or charity of your choice, would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to McKinlay Funeral Home, 459 St. Clair Street, Chatham. (519) 351-2040.

WINGROVE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-07-16 published
Slain interior designer had been in 'downward spiral'
Toronto man had become addicted to sex, drugs and alcohol, acquaintance says
By Josh WINGROVE, Page A1
The demise of Ross MAGILL began some three years ago.
Mr. MAGILL had fallen for a Vancouver man in 2005. Their relationship blossomed quickly, and Mr. MAGILL - always prone to move on a whim - uprooted his life to be with his new partner out west.
Later that year, the couple split, and Mr. MAGILL returned to Toronto a changed man.
So began what Friends called a "downward spiral" of a gifted interior designer. Mr. MAGILL became addicted to drugs, sex and alcohol, and could not keep a job or apartment.
He grew promiscuous, bringing many younger men home to his latest midtown apartment, Friends said. Monday night, he let two others in - and soon afterward he was dead, the victim of a stabbing attack in a city where few recognized the man he'd become.
Born William Ross MAGILL in Hamilton in January, 1944, he displayed a flair for design early on. He never went to design school, instead learning on the job wherever he worked - in Florida, New York, Toronto, Vancouver and Bobcaygeon, Ontario, where his mother lived.
"He was a very talented designer, really a top-flight designer," said Diane WATTS, a home furnishings designer who'd worked with Mr. MAGILL.
John MANUEL, another Toronto designer, first met Mr. MAGILL at age 17.
"He was very well-liked. He was chock full of personality and devastatingly handsome," Mr. MANUEL said. But Mr. MAGILL had a "very checkered career," he added, moving on a whim and starting over each time. "He was successful in Florida, and he threw Florida away," Mr. MANUEL said.
Eventually, Mr. MAGILL, who Friends say was Human Immunodeficiency Virus-positive, returned to Toronto to get the benefit of the Canadian health-care system. His mother, with whom he was very close, died a few years ago. Soon after, he moved to Vancouver. On December 17, 2005, he called Ms. WATTS and asked if he could move back and stay with her.
"[The boyfriend] threw him out, basically, and Ross was never the same after that," Ms. WATTS said. "It just totally messed him up."
He stayed with Ms. WATTS for two months, weeping often. She didn't believe he was addicted to drugs at the time, but knew he'd battled alcoholism. He moved out in early 2006, and after brief stays at two other apartments (one on Alexander Street in Toronto, where Ms. WATTS suspects he picked up a drug habit,) he moved into the building on Delisle Avenue, near Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue.
Over the past five months, he rarely returned phone calls from Friends. His only family, a sister, lives on the East Coast. While falling out of contact with his design associates, it appears Mr. MAGILL, at age 64, descended into a life of drugs, sex and alcohol.
"It was just a downward spiral," Ms. WATTS said. "He was really on a descent into hell."
Friends say he continued to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, but that he wasn't looking for help.
"Everyone was upset about it for him, and tried in big ways to help him," Mr. MANUEL said. "It was getting to a point where I couldn't cope with his problems."
Mr. MAGILL became insular, only saying a quick hello to neighbours and choosing not to place his name in his building's front-door tenant directory.
He often brought in young male guests - "junkies," one tenant said - who neighbours believed to be lovers of his. "He got really mixed up in the wrong crowd," Ms. WATTS said.
But Mr. MAGILL, a proud man who spoke in such a way that neighbours believed he had a British accent, was shy about the relationships with young men. He would often send his partners up alone in an elevator so as not to arouse suspicion, neighbours said.
On Monday night, two men knocked on the door of his second-floor apartment. Mr. MAGILL let them in while a 23-year-old man living with him, identified by neighbours as his boyfriend of three months, was in the shower.
Soon afterward, Toronto police said, Mr. MAGILL had been stabbed "multiple" times and lay dead in his home.
"I believe he knew his attackers - at least one of them anyway. He opened the door," Detective Sergeant Dan NIELSEN said.
His 23-year-old guest heard the commotion and called police at 10: 42 p.m. He has been interviewed by police - saying he saw two men flee but was unable to give descriptions - and is not considered a suspect, police said.
Officers are reviewing security tapes from nearby buildings and found cocaine in Mr. MAGILL's apartment. They have made no arrests.
His frequent guests didn't please the superintendents of the 104-unit building. Much like his Friends, his neighbours warned him about the dangerous life he was leading, with young men coming and going.
"How can I say it nicely? I mentioned it many times, his 'friends,' said Agnes FORIKA, 47, with a knowing wink. "I promised him: 'One of them will kill you, Ross.' "
Mr. MAGILL is Toronto's 30th homicide of the year. An autopsy is scheduled for today.

Body found minutes after police report missing woman
By Josh WINGROVE, Page A7
A body was found in a Mississauga park yesterday, minutes after Peel police released a description of a missing woman from the same area.
The body was found around 12: 30 p.m. in Windy Hollow Park, in the Erin Mills Parkway and Dundas Street West area, Peel police Constable Wayne PATTERSON said. Police had not identified the body last night. The death is being treated as suspicious. "Any time you find a body in a park in a wooded area, we would treat that as suspicious," Constable PATTERSON said. An autopsy is planned for today.
At 12: 19 p.m. yesterday, Peel police sent out an alert for a missing 31-year-old Mississauga woman. Karina NEFF was last seen at her home at 10 p.m. Monday, and has a reduced cognitive capacity, police say. Her home is near where the body was found.

Grey County motorist found dead in field
By Josh WINGROVE, Staff Reporter
A 20-year-old man killed in a car crash this morning may have laid dead in a field for hours before being found by another driver, Ontario Provincial Police say.
Chance MORTON, 20, wasn’t wearing his seatbelt when his Honda Prelude left the road, clipped a hydro pole, and rolled several times before stopping in a field along Side Road 9, near Owen Sound, about 200 km northwest of Toronto.
His car and body were discovered around 6: 30 a.m. by another driver. Ontario Provincial Police believe the crash happened much earlier Saturday morning, possibly several hours before the car was found.
Weather was not a factor, police said. The victim was alone in the car.
MORTON lived in Kilsyth, a small town just a few kilometres from the crash site.
Ontario Provincial Police are working to determine the cause of the crash. Witnesses: are asked to call police at 1-888-310-1122.
