STAPLETON, Arnold Grieve
Joined his wife Helen (née PRESTON) and soul mate of 49 years on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Born August 2, 1918 in Stratford, Ontario, he is survived by his second wife Mary MacLEOD, brother Bill, brother-in-law Hugh SHORTILL, children Joan BOXER (Richard,) Jeff (Patti,) Diana (Bill TAILOR/TAYLOR,) and Arn (Peggy.) Grandchildren Sarah, John, Todd, Marley, Preston and Katie will sorely miss their Poppa. Uncle Arn leaves giant shoes to fill in the lives of the many Stapleton/Preston relatives spread throughout the world. As corporate lawyer (having graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1950), Director of Personnel and chief labour contract negotiator for General Motors of Canada over a 29 year career, A.G. was the youngest director in the company's history. His was the voice of reason - the calm amidst many a storm during one of the most challenging eras in the United Auto Workers/General Motors contract evolution. Many said that Arn's unique ability to compartmentalize complicated concepts won over both union foes and management associates alike. He was able to maintain composure by utilizing a wonderful sense of humour centered around a quick wit and well placed one-liners. A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened. An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford. Memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 633 Colborne Street, Suite 150, London, Ontario N6B 2V3 would be gratefully appreciated.
"Safe Journey, Dad."

BOXER, Nancy Isabel (née BAKER)
On May 8th, 2008, her 88th birthday, surrounded by family, passed away peacefully, at home. Nancy, treasured wife of Dick, for 64 rich and wonderful years, beloved mother and mother-in-law of Richard and Joan BOXER, Shelagh and Christopher TAILOR/TAYLOR and Jeffrey BOXER and Nancy FLANDERS. Adored grandmother of Sarah, John and Todd BOXER, and Ryan, Patrick and Jeffrey TAILOR/TAYLOR. Cherished sister of Gina LAMB (Reverend Bill LAMB) and predeceased by her sister Kathleen WOODS and her brother Graham BAKER. In addition, Nancy will be missed by her companion Mila VILLOTE, who provided her compassion, help and love during the last six years. Born in 1920, in Toronto, Nancy attended Bishop Strachan School, Cheltenham Ladies College (United Kingdom) and the University of Toronto (Pi Phi), where she majored in child studies. She taught briefly before joining the navy (Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service) and served on the east coast until the war ended and she returned home to Toronto. An example for all, Nancy lived life to the fullest. Warm, gracious, informed -- she always had a kind word to say about everyone. Thoughtful, charitable, forgiving -- she was a devout Christian as her church and faith played an important role in her life. Nancy always devoted her life to her family and Friends. For her efforts in supporting her community including the Garden Club of Toronto, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Toronto Hunt, the Order of St. Lazarus, and many other organizations, she was awarded the Queen's Jubilee Medal for public service in 1977. A private family service and interment will be held at Saint Paul's Church and the Mount Pleasant Cemetery. A memorial service to celebrate Nancy's life will be announced in this paper later. For those wishing to honour Nancy's life in a material way, donations to Evangelical Medical Aid Society, Box 820, Station Main, Stouffville, Ontario L4A 7Z9, would be appreciated.
'The smile of our dear Nancy will be missed in her person, but her memory will live in our hearts until we meet again'
