WOLCH, Diane Kay (née WILSON)
(February 17, 1935-January 26, 2008)
Diane Kay WOLCH of Victoria, British Columbia ended her long fight with cancer early on the morning of January 26, 2008. Born in Montreal, Quebec to Muriel Olive and Charles Tappen WILSON. Diane was raised in Montreal where she graduated from McGill University as a Finance major. Diane was preceded in death by her parents, and her sister, Joan HYLAND (Wilson.) She is survived by her loving husband, Doctor Lorne A. WOLCH, children Susan and Bruce (Darcy) and her adoring grandchildren Kaitlyn, Robbie, Holly and Fisher; stepchildren Sara (Julian), Mark (Sandra), and Jonathan; step-grandchildren Ari and Jackson; nieces Tara and Meghan and nephews Sean and Tim. Professionally, Diane was the first female stockbroker at Burns Fry Limited in Winnipeg. She was also a financial consultant at the Exchange Consulting Group and was appointed to the Manitoba Securities Commission. After moving to Victoria in 1994, she was appointed to the British Columbia Securities Commission for 3 consecutive terms. Always generous, Diane's volunteer work was varied and extensive. In Winnipeg, she was actively involved in the Junior League, eventually becoming President. She was a member of the Board of Governors and Treasurer of Balmoral Hall School. And, she was a member of the Board of Directors of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet for nine years, culminating in her appointment as President of the Board of Directors. She was also the first female Commodore of the Royal Lake of the Woods Yacht Club. In Victoria, she was a member of the Board of Directors for Pacific Opera Victoria. She also participated in the Capital Campaign for the new research facility for the British Columbia Cancer Agency of Victoria. In her early years in Montreal, Diane was a track and field star. This led to a lifelong love of tennis, snow skiing, golf, hiking, kayaking and swimming. She was always active and fit, as illustrated by her involvement in Dragonboat racing in Victoria after she was diagnosed with cancer. Her hobbies included poker, bridge, book club, birding and gourmet cooking. The family would like to express our deepest thanks to Doctor Phillip Kelly and the nurses on 7A at the Victoria General Hospital for making the last weeks of Diane's life as comfortable as possible. A service will be held in Diane's honour at 11: 00 a.m. on Friday, February 1, 2008 at Saint_John the Divine, 1611 Quadra, Victoria.

His family would like to thank family and Friends for the tremendous outpouring of love and support that they and John received while he was in hospital.

TRIMBLE, William Burbage Smyth
Educator, died at Sunrise of Aurora on Monday, June 2nd 2008. Born in California, he grew up in Toronto, obtaining his education at the University of Toronto, from which he held four degrees. His education was interrupted by five years of service with the R.C.N.V.R., most of which was spent on loan to the Royal Navy. He served first in Combined Operations and was on the carrier ship M.V. Ettrick when it was torpedoed on its return from the North African landings. He went back to sea as a Fighter Direction Officer, attached to the first squadron of night fighters ever to operate from an aircraft carrier. He was awarded a Mention in Despatches on one of several Murmansk convoys. He was discharged in 1945 as a Lieutenant-Commander. Back in civilian life, he saw himself first and foremost as a teacher. Along with any administrative duties, he always insisted on remaining part time in the classroom. He served as Vice- President of Ryerson, professor of education at the University of Toronto, Vice-President of Humber College and first Chairman of The Board of George Brown College. He and his wife (Dorothy ROBERTSON) spent three years in Lesotho, Africa in the 1970s where he helped to implement a World Bank education project and Dorothy was Field Supervisor for Oxfam and Save the Children Fund. Bill had a gift for writing. His family treasure his letters and stories, but many students will remember his texts, Understanding the Canadian Economy and Basic Economics for Lesotho. While accomplished in his profession, Bill's devotion to family was a priority.

Joe was also the beloved grandfather - a role he cherished - to Laura, Andrew, Sydney and Calum (and a fifth who is on the way, name pending). He treasured being Uncle Joe to Bruce, Brian, and Douglas EMERSON. Joe also had a special relationship with his late uncle, Jack DRENNAN, who's wife Miriam maintained that special bond. During his year-long battle with cancer, all those who knew him were inspired by his perseverance, stoicism, selflessness, and enduring sense of humour.

COTTON, Mary A. (née SMITH)
Of Owen Sound and Tobermory passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital on Thursday, June 26, 2008 in her 87th year. Mary was predeceased by her loving husband Harold and will be deeply missed by her children Penny CURTIS (the late Bill CURTIS) of Brampton, Linda RIEGER (Ray) of Port Stanley, Robert COTTON of Owen Sound/Tobermory and Valerie COTTON of Bolton as well as by her grandchildren Tracy JONES (Jeff,) Terri BENWELL (Rick,) Karen WOLFENDEN (Geoff,) James CURTIS (Lara), Anne CURTIS and Daniel COTTON- KOVEN. In her later years, Mary was especially delighted by visits from her great-grandchildren Jessie, Kayla, Michael, Tyson, Caleb, Madison and Chloe. Mary was the daughter of the late Rev. Robert SMITH and Dora (nee FIELDS) and was predeceased by her sisters Dora and Jenny and her brothers Herbert and Arthur. Growing up she lived in many small towns in the Eastern townships and Quebec and then attended McGill University and MacDonald Normal School in Montreal. After teaching for one year, she enrolled in the Canadian Women's Army Corps and while serving in London, England met and married Harold. Mary was a spirited, independent and intelligent woman. While raising her family, she returned to teaching and continued her education, graduating from Queen's University (1971) and qualifying as a primary educational specialist and teaching librarian. She was instrumental in designing and establishing elementary school libraries in Owen Sound. The young children loved story time with Mrs. COTTON and she had many devoted library helpers over the years. Mary had many varied interests (reading, music (piano), travel, knitting, bridge, rocks) and like her husband Harold, continued to learn and take on new challenges. Mary and Harold were tremendous role models for their children, students and Friends. Sincere appreciation is expressed to the staff of the Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital for the loving care provided to Mary. Visitation will be held at the George Funeral Home, 430 Mary Street, Wiarton on Sunday, June 29, 2008 from 7: 00 to 9: 00 p.m. and on Monday, June 30th from 12:30 p.m. until the time of the service at 2: 00 p.m. Interment Bayview Cemetery.

KORTE, Adele
With all of us feeling that a future without Mom (a.k.a. Nana) has arrived at our doorstep far sooner than any of us hoped it would, the daughters and partners of Adele KORTE (Johanne/Rick GREGORY, Nancie/Andy WOLFF, Lu/Sue KING and Karen KORTE and Heidi/Bob McKEE) announce her sudden death March 28, 2008, while visiting family in Toronto. In true KORTE fashion she made her exit while packing the car to go skiing for the weekend! Adele was predeceased by her parents Gustave and Maria VOGEL, and her beloved brothers Ed and Don. It's said that you can tell a lot about a woman by rifling through her purse. As we stare at its contents poured out on the kitchen table, we realize Adele's bulging bag was no exception. A favourite watch of her husband Johan who predeceased her in 2007 after 51 years of marriage, photos of her adored 11 grandchildren (Ryan, Keli, Lian and Derek GREGORY, Makena, Hayden and Lake KORTE- MOORE, Quincy and Jesse KORTE- KING and Kayla and Kieran McKEE,) very old and stale but still used tubes of lipstick that spoke of a woman who was 'a child of the depression' beside blank cheques that were generously dispatched to make sure we never would be, a driver's license with the date of birth showing her to be younger than she actually was, Turkish lira and Saudi riyals, a much used library card, and, at the very bottom, a tiny yellowed newspaper clipping with words memory tells us she took to heart; 'You may have tangible wealth untold, Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold, Richer than I you can never be, I had a mother who read to me' In Adele's memory, grab a coffee, grab a book and grab a child. Not necessarily in that order! Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, on Tuesday, April 1, 2008 from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 2: 30 p.m. Condolences may be sent to korte.nomad@gmail.com.

He will be dearly missed by his loving wife Vivien, his three children Nicolas (Teresa), Michael (Andrea) and Christina (Timothy) and his five grandchildren Nicole, Kelsey, Jeremy, Erika and Matthew. He will also be sadly missed by his only cousin Werner (Helga), in Germany, who was more like a brother to him. He was predeceased by his parents Kurt and Erika and sister Annemarie. His favourite hobby was photography and he spent his long and healthy life working in that field. He was an avid sportsman and played tennis and golf to within weeks of his death. He had been a member at the Donalda Club for over 20 years and served on their tennis committee for most of that time. He served terms as President of the Inter-County Tennis Association, the Ontario Tennis Association and the Ontario Umpires Association. He was also a very keen member of the Canadian arm of the International Club of Tennis where his duties as Secretary took him all over the world, including Wimbledon. It was his love of tennis that took him to New Zealand where he met his wife. Together they forged a life long mixed doubles partnership. For years he was also a dedicated March of Dimes volunteer for which he was the highest collector in Ontario the last two years. The family wishes to thank Doctor KNIGHT and the dedicated team at North York General Hospital.
