WOOD, Michael Bruce (March 22, 1959-January 18, 2008)
For those blessed to have been taken into Michael's heart he made us better and stronger people. Being his friend meant that you were the recipient of sage advice, sometimes hard to hear, but always spot-on. His compassionate spirit and caustic humour made for delightful visits. All Michael demanded in return was that we be the most we can be. His Friends miss the man but do not grieve the liberation of this exceptional spirit and say thank you for the love. There will be a private memorial held in Alvinston, Ontario.

WOOD, Eleanor Clayton
Died peacefully in her sleep on February 6, 2008. She was 88.
Eleanor was born in Saint Thomas, Ontario and graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1941. She moved to Toronto and worked for Maclean Hunter magazine. In Toronto, she met Cecil WOOD an engineering student, on a blind date. They were married in 1948.
Eleanor was a happy, vivacious and active mother of 3 who adored her husband and soul mate of 60 years. She loved tennis, bridge, travelling, walks with her family and skinny dipping in the early morning at the family cottage in Muskoka. She was actively involved in her local church through the altar guild and other activities.
Eleanor adored her 3 children, their spouses and her 7 grandchildren and was much loved by them in return. A love of books was her other passion. Once her children were in high school, she returned to school and became a library technician, and then worked at Aurora High School for many years.
Eleanor left many gifts to husband, family and Friends. Her ability to love unconditionally and to surround people with her love, will be remembered by all who knew her.
Perhaps her grandchildren said it best. "Grandmas make life more beautiful". We love you and will miss you always.
In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations being given to the Canadian Wildlife Federation, 350 Michael Cowpland Dr., Kanata, Ontario K2M 2W1.

WOOD, James Douglas
(December 13, 1928-June 7, 2008)
It is with great sadness that the WOOD and Bretsen family announce the passing of Jim WOOD. Father, grandfather, friend and self-proclaimed husband, Jim is best remembered for his enthusiastic embrace of his life's passions. His love of music was manifest throughout his life. Jim played piano and sang a sweet high tenor, he enjoyed many performances of the Canadian Opera Company and Elmer Eisler Singers, and he supported and bequeathed the Mendelssohn Choir. Jim encouraged music education in his children, grandchildren and Friends supporting 15 of them with gifts of new pianos over his lifetime and supporting his children's participation in the Royal Conservatory and the Toronto Mendelssohn Youth Choir. Jim fondly remembered his part in the Bob Quartet at Victoria College of University of Toronto, from which he graduated in 1953. Having spent his early years training to be a minister of the United Church, Jim left the church for a career in education. He taught shop, English and drama during the early years of York Mills Collegiate. Promoted to department head, then principal, and completing a Masters and Doctorate, Jim became a Professor of Education at the Faculty of Education, University of Toronto. A handyman and weekend builder throughout his life, Jim lovingly designed and built a small farmhouse and barn overlooking Creemore, Ontario. The unparalleled view from the floor to ceiling windows captured Jim's attention and those of all who visited. Often with a hammer in his hand and always with a pencil behind his ear, Jim willingly helped his family and Friends with renovations and upgrades, delighting in the design and completion of every project. His handy skills helped him cope with maintaining not only his farm but four other properties including a large Madison Avenue rooming house where he kept rents very low to help University student tenants. His intellect and vast range of interests made him a modern renaissance man. Admired by his Friends and relatives he will be dearly and sorrowfully missed. Jim is survived by his loving partner Ferne and his three children Joel, Seana and Matthew, as well as their mother, Ryl and sister Margaret.

She is dearly missed by her sister Barbara SPEARS, her sons John St. George O'BRIAN (Helen) and Peter Beatty O'BRIAN (Carolyn BENNETT,) her grandchildren Melanie, Amy, Meghan, Jack and Ben (all O'BRIAN) who knew and loved her as 'Dede', her nephew Douglas SPEARS, and her nieces Jean PODOLSKY (George,) Buffy ASH (Bill,) and Kit RENGERS. She is also remembered with love by her brothers-in-law, James O'BRIAN (Anne) and Liam O'BRIAN (Barbara). Edie grew up in Toronto on Cottingham Street and Ava Crescent, the third daughter of lawyer Percy BEATTY (Fraser and Beatty) and Marjorie. She attended Bishop Stachan School and Hatfield Hall and spent summers at Nares Inlet, Georgian Bay, where she first met Peter in 1936.

During the War she served with the Red Cross. She later volunteered for many years with the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire at Dixon Hall in Toronto. She delighted in her family life, her dogs, Chelsea, Hollywood and Marley, long country walks and blueberry picking by canoe in the Georgian Bay. She was fiercely loyal and supportive to those she loved, and always sided with the 'underdog'. Edie's family is deeply grateful to the Meighen Manor for the loving care provided by its dedicated staff. She is sadly missed by her devoted care-giver, friend and daily companion, Merlidita DE VERA, who faithfully maintained her dignity, confidence and humour during her decline from Alzheimer disease. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, July 9th at 2 p.m. in the Chapel of St. James the-Less Cemetery, 635 Parliament Street, Toronto. Donations may be made to the Canadian Alzhiemer Society or Salvation Army, Meighen Manor.
