BRANDT, Robert " Bob" Wardell
Dearest Bob, We have been so lucky to know you - a great gentleman who cared for others in so many ways. You were a straight for ward genuine good guy, having a positive impact on many lives with an unassuming graciousness, an indomitable spirit but with a bit of mischief now and again. Great respect was earned by you with your intelligence, integrity, common sense and fairness to all. With your quick wit and famous Bob Brandt humour (just ask the staff) you could brighten up a discussion. You loved problem solving from puzzles to broken equipment and management issues. The challenges captivated you. Classmates from Ontario Veterinarian College '70, Guelph named you their Class President and we have been fortunate to rendezvous every 5th year to renew those Friendships with gusto. You enjoyed opening new clinics in St. Vital and The Pas, working on Veterinary Boards and church organizations, the camaraderie with the curling team, the eventful and sometimes fateful fishing trips, bonding while hunting at the farm when you had your licence, the sometimes hospital bound but fun ski trips plus exploring and observing nature while hiking and biking far and near and special summers with family and Friends at the lake. Travel was a big part of our life, especially in your semi-retirement as we set out to explore and to meet new and old Friends. Your family was very special to you. You were born to Doctor Marvin and Martha BRANDT (both deceased) in The Pas then moved to Dauphin, Manitoba; studied at the University of Manitoba then Ontario Veterinary College before settling in Winnipeg to work at St. Vital Clinic and then Birchwood Animal Hospital. You had great visions and Birchwood grows again. We will sure miss you with all of that warmth and charm. Wife - Barb; daughter Susan and Dave SIMPSON; son David and Katarina WELSH; sister Lynne and Dave BELL -- Ian, Chris, Peter; brother Doug - Jamie, Kenneth, Adam; Father-in-law - Jack DEGUERRE; sister-in-law and brother-in-law - Sue and Ted DOBIE -- Jeff, Karen. Thanks so much for the very precious memories. Love with Big Hugs and Kisses, Family and Friends. A 'Celebration' of Bob's life will be held on Friday, April 18th, 2008 at The Gates, 6945 Roblin Blvd; family welcoming of guests at 2: 00 p.m., 'Celebration' at 2:30 p.m. Thanks to all the special caregivers in Palliative Care at St. Boniface Hospital, Home Care and Riverview. Donations may be made to Fort Garry United Church Rebuilding Fund, 800 Point Rd., Winnipeg, Manitoba R3T 3L8, a charity of your choice or plant a tree in memory of Bob.

Whether cycling in France, sailing in Turkey or camel rides in Jordan her enthusiasm and beautiful smile inspired all those she encountered along the way. An interest in learning continued throughout Carolyn's life; she was an avid Francophile who undertook the study of the French language both in Quebec and France and with equal interest embraced the literary and culinary cultures. She went on to be Vice-President of the Alliance Français Edmonton. Carolyn was born in Bournemouth, England on April 22, 1933 to an English merchant seaman father and Nova Scotian mother (Gertrude DOBSON née WEEKS.) Her father, Lt. Commander Andrew Hedley DOBSON, officer commanding HMCS St. Croix, was killed in action in the Battle of the Atlantic in 1943. The terrible loss of the St. Croix with all hands but one was, at that time, Canada's largest naval disaster and is memorialized in the 1997 book Deadly Seas. Carolyn grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia and attended Queen Elizabeth High School (1949-1951). After high school she went to the University of Toronto on a full scholarship studying Physical and Occupational Therapy and graduated top of her class. At University of Toronto she played Varsity Women's Basketball winning an Ontario Intercollegiate Championship. She returned to Halifax and in 1957 she married her high school beau Michael. They have four daughters, the first three born in Halifax and the youngest in Edmonton where they have made their home for the last 42 years. Even after moving West, Carolyn always retained her links to and love of Nova Scotia. Carolyn is survived by her loving husband and first grade classmate Michael, daughters Nancy, Sarah (Martin GOUIN), Eve (Keith TRACEY), Barb (Ian COLLOMBIN,) and grandchildren Justin GOUIN, Andrew JAYCOCK, Anna GOUIN, Lauren GOUIN, Isabelle GOUIN, Luke COLLOMBIN, Taylor COLLOMBIN, Eve COLLOMBIN, and her brother Doctor Tom DOBSON, as well as a large and extended family of brothers and sistersin-law, nieces and nephews (plus loyal companion, golden retriever Ryder). Her parents, sister-in-law Jean DOBSON, and brother-in-law Kirk MacDONALD predecease her. Carolyn bravely battled illness these last 15 months with the dignity and generosity of spirit that those who loved her knew well. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the University of Alberta Hospital (4G3), the Glenrose Hospital and the General Hospital (9Y) for their care and compassion. A celebration of Carolyn's life will be held at All Saint's Cathedral, 10035-103 Street, Edmonton, Friday May 23rd at 12.00 p.m. Memories of Carolyn can be sent to www.connellymckinley.com In lieu of flowers donations to University of Alberta Hospital Foundation - Neurology would be appreciated.

JAMES, Gayle Marlene (née GILCHRIST)
(April 15, 1940-May 30, 2008)
Gayle Marlene Gilchrist JAMES passed away on Friday, May 30, 2008 at the age of 68 years with close family members by her side. Gayle met lymphoma and death as she lived her life; carefully researched, discussed at length and then accepted the outcome with a calm dignity and a touch of black humour. Born April 15, 1940 in rural Alberta, she attended a one room school taught by her father, high school in Castor and on to the University of Alberta (B.A. English 1962) and University of Toronto (B.S.W. 1963, M.S.W. 1966). Gayle was predeceased by her parents, Lela (GREENWALT) and Don GILCHRIST, her brother, Don, her sister, Norma, and her beloved canine, Lady. She will be missed by her brother, Garry (Elly) Victoria, British Columbia; her nieces and nephews, Debby DOBSON (Ed HALL), Becky DOBSON, Melanie DOBSON (Graeme ROCKER) all of Nova Scotia, Kim DOBSON (Ramona KRAEMER) of Ontario; Laura, Jacqueline and Nicole GILCHRIST of Victoria she will also be missed by her grand-nieces, nephews and god children, Karen, Esther, Alex, Chris, Sarah, Emily, Adam, Patrick, Zac, Linda, Ben, Erin and Sean; as well as her great-grandnephew, Nahze; honorary aunt, Jean PEETERS of Victoria, British Columbia as well as by Doctor K.W. JAMES. She started her social work career with the Alberta Child Guidance Clinic before joining the Education Clinic, Edmonton Public School Board in 1967 and then the University of Calgary, the Faculty of Social Work in Edmonton in 1975 before moving to Calgary in 1994 and retiring as Associate Professor Emeritus in 2004. While working with students with learning disabilities and their families, she developed a consummate passion for public issues that led to a life-long involvement in social advocacy and public policy. Her dedication to social work and inspirational leadership was legendary, holding many professional association positions, first as Registrar (1974-1977), President (1979-1981) and Treasurer (1996-98) of the Alberta Association of Social Workers and President of the Canadian Association of Social Workers (1981-83). Gayle's international leadership began in 1978 and was capped by being elected Canada's first President of the International Federation of Social Workers (1988-1992). She was instrumental in Canada hosting the first world social work conference in 1984 and the establishment of the International Federation of Social Workers Human Rights Commission in 1988 to advocate for missing, wrongfully detained and tortured social workers and students. Appointed by the Prime Minister to Chair the National Council of Welfare (1986-1989), she was the senior non-governmental organization delegate on the Minister of Health and Welfare's social policy mission to the Republic of China and the only woman and only non-governmental organization member of Canada's delegation to the United Nations Welfare Ministers Inter-Regional Consultation on Developmental Social Welfare in 1987. She was a founding member of the Edmonton Association for Children with Learning Disabilities, Canadian Research Institute for Law and Family, Canadian Social Work Foundation, Weiler Award Trust; long time board member of the Canadian Council of Social Development and International Council of Social Welfare, Canada; and member of Kings College Circle, University of Toronto. Her many honours included an Alberta Achievement Award (Excellence Category), Exemplary Contribution Award (Alberta Association of Social Workers), 75th Anniversary Award (University of Toronto, Faculty of Social Work), Outstanding National Service Award (Canadian Association of Social Workers), Teaching Excellence Award (University of Calgary), Arbor Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service (University of Toronto), inaugural Andrew Mouravieff-Apostol Medal (International Federation of Social Workers) and Lifetime Achievement Award (Pulse of Social Work, Calgary). Gayle was an inspiration and beloved mentor to countless students, colleagues, Friends and family. She was uncompromising in her support of students and an incisive media commentator on social policy issues. Unphased by her illness in her final years, she devoted untold hours of volunteer expert witness testimony to help victims of eugenic sterilizations win a landmark class action settlement. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, those touched by Gayle may forget her exact words or the specifics of what she did, but they will never forget how special she made them feel. A special thank you to Doctor T. Thaell, Doctor E. Liu, and to the staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre for the excellent care they provided to Gayle over the last seven years. A Memorial Celebration of Gayle's Life will be held at the Rozsa Centre, University of Calgary, on Monday, July 14, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will follow.
