NIXON, Annie McPhail "Nan" (née McLEAN)
Nan NIXON passed away peacefully at Errinrung Residence in Thornbury on Monday May 26, 2008 at the age of 93. Born in Greenock, Scotland, she was the daughter of John and Lilius (née DELGARNO) McLEAN. At the age of 15 Nan immigrated to Canada with her parents and siblings. Although Nan received a limited education and faced many challenges in her earlier life, as was so often the case in those years, she was able to fulfill her most important dreams, those of raising her family and being a kind and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She is remembered by her family and Friends as a wise woman whose patience and forgiveness set examples for all to follow. She loved her home and ensured that it was always a welcoming environment for all and her homemaking skills were passed as a legacy to her children. Her home was always clean, the treadle sewing machine rarely resting as she made and re-made clothing for her family and the results of her knitting and quilting were cherished by all who received her homemade gifts. Above all Nan loved to play with the grandchildren sharing their laughter while enjoying checkers, dominoes, snakes and ladders and many card games. She encouraged her family to strive to succeed by endeavoring to do their best at whatever task might be in front of them. She shared her spirit with the gentle 'toughness' that was her inspiring strength of character. Nan was predeceased by her husband Robert Henry NIXON in 1956 when she was a woman of 41 years of age and she remained undaunted in her dedication that her family should know the warmth and security of home. She is remembered as a loving mother by her daughters Dorothy FROST of Thornbury, Isobel LEVACQUE of Collingwood and Debra Nixon McLEOD of Nottawa and she was predeceased by her son Bill NIXON. She is lovingly remembered as a dear mother-in-law by her daughter-in-law Betty (SANGSTER) Nixon VANDERLINDEN of Clayhurst, British Columbia, and by her son-in-law Roger McLEOD of Nottawa. She will also be remembered by her brother Jim McLEAN of Parksville, British Columbia and by sisters-in-law May McLEAN and Joy McLEAN, both of Meaford. Nan was also predeceased by sons-in-law Bill FROST, Ray LEVACQUE and Dale VANDERLINDEN and by brothers and sisters John McLEAN (Isabelle,) Jean SMITH (Harvey,) May MARTIN (Ray), David McLEAN, Tom McLEAN (Ethel), and Bill McLEAN. Nan will be most affectionately remembered as the devoted matriarch of her family including her seven grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren and her many nieces and nephews and their families. As Nan desired, a family service of committal and interment of her cremated remains, officiated by Reverend Dr. Brian GOODINGS of Grace United Church, was conducted at Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery on Friday May 30 where Nan's ashes were interred with her late husband. If so desired, and in memory of Nan, memorial donations to Thameswood Lodge, a residence for cancer patients in London, Ontario, would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, The Valley Chapel, in Thornbury to whom arrangements have been entrusted.

MacCOLL, Beulah Sarah Jane (née FISHER)
Passed peacefully away at Fiddick's Nursing Home, Petrolia on Monday, April 14. She was the beloved wife of the late Hugh (Barney) MacCOLL (1989.) Beulah was born on February 05, 1913 on the 10th Line East (Petrolia Line) to Margaret (McLEAN) and Walter FISHER. She attended church in her early years at St. Andrew's Brooke and Enniskillen United Church and attended school on the Tenth Line. In her early twenties she moved to Regina to live with her grandfather George FISHER. Upon returning she met and married her husband Barney in 1938 and lived in Petrolia. They purchased a house on Greenfield Street in 1947 where she lived until 2003 when she moved to Fiddick's Retirement Home. Shortly after Barney's illness in the 50's she returned to high school and completed her commercial diploma, then obtaining employment at a local bank until he was able to return to work at Polymer several years later.

In her 80's she learned to tole paint and spent many enjoyable hours painting various projects. She loved to knit and continued this hobby until the last month of her life. Beulah attended many exercise classes which she said kept her flexible and in good health. Her many trips with Charlie were a special pastime and she attained her goal of visiting both the east and west coasts of Canada. Beulah was the last surviving member of a family of eight. She was predeceased by her sisters and brothers Delores (Fred) EVOY, Clayton (Gwen) FISHER, Don (Lou) FISHER, Jerry FISHER (killed in action in France in World War 2), Gwendolyn FISHER, Arlie FISHER and Wayne (Donna) FISHER and Catherine FISHER.

RISSLING, Mildred Doreen (née LLOYD)
Passed away at University Hospital, London, Ontario on Thursday, May 15, 2008 in her 84th year. Predeceased in 2005 by her husband of 63 years, Ned RISSLING. Also predeceased by two brothers, James and Grant LLOYD. Dearest and most beloved mother of Elaine and Craig CASWELL (Sudbury,) Sharon and David RUBY (Strathroy,) Linda BALTZER (London), Jim and Linda (Strathroy), Shirley (Strathroy), Beverley and Doug JONES (Whitby,) Dale and Jacquie (Saint Thomas,) Terry (Saint Thomas) and Douglas (London). Loving and fun loving sister of Audrey LIMOGES (Robert, deceased,) Arden LLOYD and Carolyn and Leo ROUSSY (Sudbury.) Precious grandmother of Garnet and Joh-Anna, Neil and Elizabeth, Brent and Kami-Rae, Glenn and Lianne, Gregory and Karen, Sandra and David, Beth and Mark, Karen and Jeff, Jennifer and Richard, Sherri and Steven, Frankie, Ned Jr., Tara, Amy-Jo, Shannon and Dave, Tiffany and Kyle, Drew and Amanda, Daniel and Tasha, Melissa and Jamie-Lynn. Also survived by 28 great-grandchildren. Survived by two sisters-in-law, Eva McLEAN and Regina HOSKINS of Regina, Saskatchewan. and several nieces and nephews. This was Mom's legacy - each person meant so much to her, each one equally important. She delighted in her family's visits and kept a little stash of toys and books in her home "in case the great-grandchildren came by." Born in Toronto, the eldest child of Mildred WILSON and Edgar LLOYD (deceased.) She moved to Kagawong as a child, and later to Sudbury. Her kindness in caring for her family was always her first priority - she lived by her Heart. A spirited young woman, she learned to drive the family automobile at age 14 and shared some very humorous stories with her family. She often said she could live without many things, but not without her car. Her grandchildren often teased her with their pet names of Grandma Dynamite, Little Grandma and Diamond Lil because of her love and accumulation of fine jewelry. As a young married woman, Doreen traveled to the Air Force Bases with her husband and young child and made the best of each sometimes difficult situation. A wonderful cook, who could make "something from nothing", and learned how to cook her husbands' favorite German dishes, and took great glee in his compliments of outdoing his own precious mother's cooking. Mom was often asked for her recipes and would simply say they were "all written in her Head" as she divulged her secret style. Doreen was a partner with her husband in their Family Business before moving to London over 30 years ago, although she was sad to leave her Gatchell and Sudbury Friends. She was a great card player and also enjoyed her television game shows and could "outwit" all of us with her brilliant knowledge on many topics. For the past several years in failing health, Mom gratefully acknowledged the special help of her daughter Linda, in both her and Dad's illnesses. She continued to love the simple pleasures of life and very much enjoyed the neighbourly chit chats and especially appreciated the kind help of her good friend Bob (the neighbourhood Mayor). At The Place She Loved Best, a private celebration will take place at the Country Estate Home of her daughter Sharon and Son-in-law David RUBY. Mother loved their long winding and Lantern Lit acres of green fields, with Lilac trees and a myriad of flowers - she loved the fresh fragrances of the grass and the songbirds as they playfully whipped around. She loved to reminisce about this place that reminded her of her beloved childhood home on Manitoulin Island. A spiritual woman who showed great courage in the face of her illness, her life will be celebrated as she had wished, with her family gathered together in Friendship, loads of food, gospel music, story telling and children playing everywhere, running noisily amongst the trees. She would say "it doesn't get any better than this". The Matriarch and Hub of her family, missing her is an "understatement". Safe in the arms of Jesus, peacefully resting and "Free At Last". Thank you Mother - you were the best! On-line condolences and donations may be made through www.mcfarlane-roberts.ca. or if you wish, a donation to any Food Bank would honour our mother. McFarlane and Roberts Funeral Home 519-652-2020, Lambeth in care of arrangements.

CHAPPLE, James " Jim" Clement
Age 70, died July 1st, 2008, surrounded by family and Friends. Jim was born in Montreal in 1938. His 33 years at Bell Canada helped shape Jim's life. It was there he made many Friends and made the move from his hometown to Ontario. Loyal friend and generous teacher are words commonly used to describe Jim. He was a man who was true to his commitments and those around him. Jim was an energetic member of the East London Anglican Ministries. Fundraiser extraordinaire, he could always be counted on to lend more than a hand. As consistent as East London Anglican Ministries in Jim's life was his involvement in the Huff n' Puff hockey league and love for spending time with his pals on the golf course. The consummate social director Jim could always be found organizing events, serving as master of ceremony or host and in general the life of the party. His jokes and sense of humour are legendary. Through his life there are so many people he has touched and who are richer for both the wisdom and laughter gained from Jim. Whatever the moment in life, Jim was someone you wanted by your side. Jim is survived by his wife, Nancy, his son and his wife, Marty and Barb (of Brantford); his son and his wife, Joe and Pam of Ajax); his daughter and her husband, Donna and Rick (of Chatham); his son and his wife James and Erin (of Seattle); eight grandchildren, Brandi and her husband Ian, Steven, Danielle, Laura, Lee, Jana and Logan; one great-grandchild, Loren and his business partner and close friend Dan MacLEAN. He is further survived by brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, cousins and an endless number of Friends. Relatives and Friends are welcome at the Forest Lawn Memorial Chapel, 1997 Dundas Street E. (at Wavell) London, on Thursday, July 3rd from 1: 00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. or 6: 00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Funeral services for Jim will be held at 10: 30 a.m. Friday, July 4th, at East London Anglican Ministries, 2060 Dundas Street E, London. Father Michael JOHNSON will officiate. Jim's life would not be complete without a party. After the funeral service there will be a reception at the church. Burial will follow the evening of Friday, July 4th at 8: 00 p.m. in Erskine Cemetery, the North East corner of Finch Avenue and Fairport Road, Pickering. Memorials may be made to either the East London Anglican Ministries building fund (2060 Dundas St. E. London, Ontario, N5V 1R2) or the Canadian Cancer Society (www.cancer.ca or 1-888-939-3333). Jim was known for his constant celebration of life. For those who cannot attend the reception please take a moment to celebrate Jim's life by toasting to your favourite memory, story or laugh shared with Jim.

Innocent victim dies from gunshot wounds
By Lisa PRIEST, Page A10
Toronto police are investigating the homicide of a 22-year-old man - in what is believed to be another tragic case of an innocent bystander killed by gunfire.
Shawn McLEAN died in hospital after being shot three days earlier in the neck at the Jane Street and Chalkfarm Drive area.
"Wrong place at the wrong time," Sergeant Norman SMART said yesterday. "It's one of those things, he's just there and there was an altercation and unfortunately he was hit."
Paramedics managed to revive Mr. McLEAN, who was found unconscious with a gunshot wound to the neck Tuesday night. He died on Friday, after being on life support.
Police said Mr. McLEAN, who is the city's fourth homicide, was not affiliated with gangs and had no criminal record.
Security camera footage shows he had been at the North York Sheridan Mall before he was shot on Tuesday; he was last seen walking to his mother's home.
This is the third murder involving guns.
John O'KEEFE was shot in the head January 12 after gunfire broke out on Yonge Street, near the Brass Rail Tavern. Five days later, a stray bullet killed another innocent bystander, Hou Chang MAO, outside a Chinatown market on Gerrard Street East near Broadview Avenue.

CAMPBELL, Doctor Nettie Mae (née MacLEAN) (A.N.)
69, passed away suddenly with grace and dignity, at home in West Porters Lake, Nova Scotia, surrounded by her loving family on Monday, 3 March 2008. Born in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, daughter of the late Neil Charles Sr. and Catherine Rebecca (HARNISH) MacLEAN. She is survived by Harry (West Porters Lake,) the father of her two wonderful sons, Doctor David (Kathy) and children Nicole and Christopher (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), and Paul (friend Gail YOUNG, Halifax) and Mom's favourite Chihuahua Zara ROZITA (West Porters Lake). Mom's lifelong path pursuing education initially began at the Teachers College in Truro, Nova Scotia. The consummate educator, she received her B.A. (with distinction) at Sir George Williams University in Montreal, Quebec (1973); M.A. (cum laude) (Educational Technology) at Concordia University in Montreal (1978); undertook further graduate studies at the Atlantic Institute of Education in Halifax (1979-84); then received a Ph. D. in Curriculum, Teaching, Learning, Leadership, Professional and Personal Development at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto (2001). In the ensuing years, Mom taught Doctoral and Master students via distance education through the University of Toronto, as well as provided thesis coaching and consulting for students throughout Ontario, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. She developed and taught several graduate courses: University of Prince Edward Island (2001 and 2003) University of Saskatchewan (2002); and University of St. François Xavier (2004 and 2005). Mom was a much sought after speaker and was invited to many national and international conferences. As an Author, she published numerous national and international articles and was in the process of completing a series of six books. These were intended to be published in 2008 and another in 2009 with a focus on Care-Empowering Education (enhancing attitude, everyday skills for addressing challenges and opportunities, awakening and self-actualization). This focus then evolved into Caring, Happiness and Inner Peace which became Mom's Ethical Will. Mom's philosophy of life was 'searching for a better way'. Some of our favourite quotes from Mom are: 'Life is about Learning and Learning is about Life' 'Falling in love with life: from the inside out, with grace, dignity and respect. A fabulous life I live and love!' 'Respect and Dignity = Caring; so, to the greatest possible extent, each person is heard towards accommodating their happiness' 'Synchronicity! The Universe and I are in Sync! Our Rhythms are Aligned' Mom contributed to the community in many ways throughout her life including: working as a substitute teacher at several public schools throughout Dartmouth teaching Grades 2-6, while working in various capacities for the Dartmouth City Council and subsequently, was a fulltime elementary school teacher (TC-8) in Nova Scotia, and Quebec. Mom was very active on numerous committees serving in many leadership capacities throughout her life: President of Memorial Society of Nova Scotia throughout the 1980's, as well the Memorial Society of British Columbia in the 1990's Vice President of Ontario Institute for Studies in Education Alumni Association 1995-1998 and Chair of its many sub-committees Editor of American Educational Research Association newsletter contributing to many administrative offices within the Wholistic Education Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association, including President 2003-2005 and received an American Educational Research Association Award 2005 for her many contributions for the advancement of educational research. Mom was a life long learner who was an avid library user, often reading 20 books at a time. She loved life! Mom loved nature and she cared for the universe with dignity and respect. Mom had a certain sense of style, designing and creating many cutting-edge clothes over the years, founding the ever fashionable NEMA label. She made many early morning cruises in her peddle boat with her little companion Zara on Porters Lake, soaking up the morning sun and in the evening she loved watching for shooting stars. She was an avid SeaDooer spending many hours cruising the banks of Porters Lake. Mom was a bicycle enthusiast, hiker and instructional guide on the Toronto Islands and Hyde Park, bird watcher, gardener - who planted many beautiful flowers she also loved harp music and nature sounds. Mom loved to spend time walking with family and Zara on the white sand of Martinique Beach, Nova Scotia's longest beach. She tamed two beautiful seagulls (that she named Sue and Frankie) and would feed them everyday by hand. Mom also enjoyed country drives wearing broad floppy hats in Paul's 1930 Model A and 1937 Jaguar SS100. She cherished her time alone for self-actualization, Hatha Yoga and meditation. Recently, Mom spent many hours sightseeing with Dad, Paul and Zara all over Nova Scotia (Briar Island-whale watching), Cape Breton Island (Cabot Trail), Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Maine, and Bermuda. Mom's passing-over has created a void that nothing will ever fill - she will be missed and forever remembered. Her spirit will live on with her family and close Friends. There will be a private family celebration of her life. Cremation under the care of Donald K. Walker Funeral Directors Ltd, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia (902-469-5601). On-line condolences may be sent to donaldkwalker@accesswave.ca. Memorial donations may be directed to the charity of your choice. Mom's ultimate wish was that we should respect and care for one another and work towards world peace. 'At the end of the day, know that I was loved and that you were loved'.
