MONAHAN livened college publications
By Joe MATYAS, Sun Media, Sun., January 6, 2008
An "energetic microdot of a woman," Karen MONAHAN is remembered as a woman who excelled at her college job.
It was her responsibility to keep Fanshawe College's 100,000 graduates in touch with their alma mater, a job that a longtime friend and colleague said she did extremely well.
She also encouraged others to follow their dreams and give something back, said Emily MARCOCCIA, lamenting the death of Fanshawe's alumni officer at 52.
"Karen was all about relationships and encouragement," said MARCOCCIA, Fanshawe's marketing and communications manager.
"She invested herself in others and made them feel as if their contributions were important. She made a difference and she made you feel as if you could make a difference, too."
MONAHAN died December 22 after a two-year battle with breast cancer.
"She thought she had beaten it, but it came back very aggressively," said MARCOCCIA.
MONAHAN was "an energetic microdot of a woman who was absolutely the loveliest, classiest woman I've ever met," she said.
"Karen had small feet, but she's left very big shoes to fill."
A citizen of Grenada, MONAHAN came to Fanshawe in London as one of its first international students, graduating in television broadcasting in 1976.
She began her career at the college a year later, hired as a media library technician.
MONAHAN joined the marketing and communications department in the late 1980s, working for MARCOCCIA as publications officer.
"She became one of the best at her job in the entire (Ontario) community college system," said MARCOCCIA. " She was an innovator, she anticipated developments and was often ahead of her time."
MONAHAN shifted Fanshawe's publications focus from dry, fact-based calendars and program guides to brochures that brought life to the college's programs, opportunities and people, she said. "She won awards for it and became someone who others copied."
MONAHAN pushed the development of the college's electronic publications, including its website, said MARCOCCIA.
"She was an exemplary employee and a great friend. As her boss, I was sad to lose her when she became Fanshawe's third alumni officer. But I knew she was perfect for the job."
MARCOCCIA said she tried to persuade MONAHAN to apply for the post 18 years earlier after Mary Ann DARLING, Fanshawe's first alumni officer, died in a car crash just before Christmas.
"She couldn't do it then because Mary Ann was her best friend and it didn't seem right."
As alumni officer for the last five years, MONAHAN won awards for Fanshawe's alumni magazine and oversaw development of mentoring and student and alumni purchase-discount programs, said MARCOCCIA.
"Karen was a producer and she punctuated her world with a wonderful wit," said MARCOCCIA. " Nobody was faster with words."

BARTA, F. DART, N. PETTIT, E. BUSTARD and L. QUINN. We thank all those who gave active care, with the love one would give a family member: Doctor P.

DARVELL o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-01-10 published
DARVELL, Henry
Father, husband, grandfather, friend, neighbour, gardener, outdoorsman, engineer, self-declared curmudgeon. Born March 26, 1931, in Glasgow, Scotland. Died July 27, 2007, in Carleton Place, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 76.
By Shayna WATSON and Rob JENNINGS and Giles DARVELL, Page L8
It is fitting that Henry, born in Scotland and raised in England, would find himself in a Canadian hamlet of 100 people most famous for its pub. He claimed status as the Ashton Village Curmudgeon with a self-published book by that name. The book was atlas, architectural document and love song to the village and life he adored.
He left Ashton, near Ottawa, adorned with sculptures made of gourds, daffodils, trees, garden gates with sunflower designs and unlikely connections between people.
Henry cultivated relationships. He was married twice, first for 26 years to Betty, with whom he had three children - Giles, Karen and Tim - then for 20 years to Susan, who predeceased him in Susan and Henry found great joy in their large garden. Henry designed and built additions to his barn and home. He traded lumber for copper and began building fountains; this gave way to gourd sculptures and then to painting and life drawing.
Henry accommodated, though didn't give in to, his failing health. He had cardiomyopathy.
Henry enjoyed drinks at the Ashton Pub on darts night, ice cream at the General Store, a good meal and the perfume of a beautiful flower.
Behind his big gruff exterior was a gentle man who easily fell under the spell of small children, delicate garden creatures and the promise of seeds.
He spoke with great pride of his children and grandchildren. His Friends were a group of people as eclectic as his interests. The extent of his social circle was evident at his 70th birthday party - toddlers, retired farmers, academics and artists joined the celebration.
Although he was unable to walk more than a block or two, Henry headed for Mexico with his dog and camper van. This was preceded by trips to northwestern Ontario, Yukon and James Bay, and followed by a trip to Newfoundland.
In the later stages of his illness, he complained that he was "dying too bloody slowly," but Henry lived independently until a few days before his death, in his home surrounded by Dougal, his canine companion, sports on the telly and a book by his side.
When he died, he left an ambitious five-foot canvas with the beginnings of a farm scene, gourds partly carved, fish to feed, plants to tend and frogs to show to visiting children. These were the signs of hope and the love of life that desired one more day.
Shayna WATSON and Rob JENNINGS are Henry's Friends, and Giles DARVELL is his eldest son.
