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. A man ahead of his times, he was a sensitive and caring husband and father, actively engaged in the raising of his children. He leaves his wife of sixty-three years, daughters Catherine WOLFE, Virginia WALSH (Michael WALSH) and Margaret NORRIE, son Alan TRIMBLE (Andrea ROTH,) grandchildren Martin WOLFE (Karen HISLOP), Heather WOLFE (Dean RIMANDO), Thomas WALSH, Alan WALSH, Mira TRIMBLE, Rebecca ALTON (Eric ALTON) and Hannah NORRIE, step-grandchildren Joshua McKAY and Oliver McKAY and great-grand_sons Henry and Alexander WOLFE. Bill and his family very much appreciated the compassion and support of Sunrise and Community Care Access Centre caregivers who enabled Dorothy and Bill to remain together during his last years.

Suddenly at home on June 18, 2008, age 82.
Predeceased by his parents, James and Vivian (née MATTHEWS) former wife, Sally, and several members of the Tyson, Pottinger, Humber clan. He was from long-time Victoria families on both sides.

McKAY, Ann
Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, world traveller, singer, conversationalist, humorist. Born August 17, 1907, in Aberdeen, Scotland. Died February 5 in Toronto of old age, aged 100.
By Georgina ABELA and Nellemarie HYDE, Page L6
Ann Urquhart Davies Clyne McKAY lived for 50 years in Aberdeen and 50 years in Toronto.
Early life wasn't easy for Ann, known as Annie. Her mother, Mary CLYNE, lost her leg at 4 when she was run over by a horse and cart, yet she managed to raise Annie and her two sisters (a third sister died at eight months old.) Hugh URQUHART, Annie's father, was a Gordon Highlander who fought in the Boer War.
Annie married Frank McKAY in her teens and gave birth to four children: Nan, Francis, Hugh and Ronald. Sadly, she was widowed at the age of 47. Two years later, she and Ronald immigrated to Canada.
Those first years in Toronto were difficult for Annie and Ron, having no job skills or family nearby. Annie moved between jobs, then was delighted to be hired by Connaught Laboratories, where she remained a devoted employee, sterilizing lab equipment, until her retirement.
Motivated by a strong desire to visit her son Francis in New Zealand, Annie babysat in the evenings for extra money to pay the fare. She was forever grateful to the travel agent who advised her to go by ship from San Francisco on a world cruise, calling in at all the exotic places she never thought she would see. She got off the ship at one port in Japan, travelled with a fellow passenger the length of the country by train and caught up with the boat at another port. While staying several months with her son and his family, Annie worked in a dress shop to help finance more travel in New Zealand. One of the highlights of her trip was joining a much younger group of people to walk the arduous Milford Track.
Annie loved singing old Scottish songs and hymns. She was quick-witted and funny, and always lightened the mood. Who could forget her description of bathing without a bathtub in Scotland: "First you wash down as far as possible, then you wash up as far as possible, and then you wash possible."
Although she wasn't happy about compulsory retirement, Annie travelled when she could, returning twice to New Zealand, to Scotland many times, and to Florida every year. She had 13 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Annie loved to walk through her neighbourhood. In her 80s, while out on her daily walk, she was hit by a car. With both legs and her pelvis broken, the prognosis wasn't good. The doctors didn't think she would survive surgery, and didn't operate for three days. But survive she did, and lived to travel more, to Scotland, London, Paris and Daytona Beach, Florida Despite several small strokes in her 90s, Annie celebrated her 100th birthday surrounded by family and Friends.
Georgina ABELA and Nellemarie HYDE are Annie's cousins.
