BULLER, Betty Angela (née TILLARD)
(May 20 1920-June 14 2008)
Peacefully in her home Saturday, June 14th 2008.
Born in England, Betty moved to Alberta with her family at age 8. At 17 she moved to Paris to live with relatives to continue studies, but returned to Canada in 1940 narrowly escaping the occupation of France. During the war she worked at Aircraft Repair in Edmonton where she met Frederick BULLER whom she married in 1944. After the war, Fred's aerospace career brought them to north Toronto where they raised their family, daughter Jocelyn and son Christopher. Many happy years ensued with family, wonderful neighbours, and De Havilland Canada Friends.
Retirement brought Betty and Fred to the west coast in 1981, first to White Rock. Betty remained devoted to Fred throughout his long illness. After his death in 1994 she moved to Vancouver and energetically renewed her interests in literature, music, current events and travel, returning to Paris and the south of France with family often. She had a genuine interest in others and made new Friends of all ages throughout her life. Participating in the growth to young adulthood of her four adoring grandchildren was her greatest pleasure. Betty is survived by Jocelyn, Chris, son-in-law Mark GABBERT, daughter-in-law Elizabeth, grand_sons Jeremy and Jonathan GABBERT and granddaughters Robin and Adrienne BULLER. Her loving kindness will be greatly missed.
A memorial service will be held July 7, 2008 at 11 a.m. St. Anslem's Anglican Church, 5210 University Blvd, Vancouver. Donations in her name to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation.

Soldier, Engineer, Public Servant, Cabinetmaker, Sailor. Colonel Richard Maurice DILLON Born August 4, 1920. Died on April 23, 2008 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, after a long illness, borne with courage and his customary patience and grace. Eldest son of Brigadier M. Murray DILLON and Muriel HICKS of London, Ontario. He is survived by his beloved Elizabeth, his wife of 63 years, and by his loving and grateful children, his daughter Kelly MEIGHEN and son-in-law Michael MEIGHEN of Toronto, his daughter Ann DILLON and son-in-law Edmund CAPE of West Vancouver, and his daughter Katherine DILLON of Toronto. Remembered with great love and admiration by his seven grandchildren, Ted, Hugh and Max MEIGHEN and Tony, David, Katherine and Hugh CAPE whose lives have been shaped by their grandfather's enthusiasm for life's possibilities, his integrity and his wonderful sense of fun. He is also survived by his sister, Shelagh WATTERS and her husband Neil of Cookstown, his sister Diana JOHNSTON of Minden and his brother Michael DILLON of London. He was predeceased by his brother John (1926,) brother-in-law Gerald JOHNSTON and his sister-in-law Maggie DILLON. He joined The Royal Canadian Regiment in 1939, serving overseas in Italy until wounded at Ortona on Christmas Eve, 1943. For bravery in the field he was awarded the Military Cross. A graduate of the University of Western Ontario (B.A. Honours Mathematics, gold medalist) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.Sc. Engineering), Richard began his career as a civil engineer. In 1960 he was appointed the first Dean of Engineering at the University of Western Ontario and then moved, in 1971, to the Ontario government, serving as deputy minister of a number of different ministries. He found many ways to involve himself in the life of his community and his country. In London he served as Chair of the United Way, as a church warden, political organizer and confidante to John Robarts during his tenure as Premier of Ontario. He contributed as well to more distant communities through work with Canadian International Development Agency in Thailand, as President of Professional Engineers of Ontario, President of the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires and as a founding director of The Schmeelk Canada Foundation. Throughout his life he worked passionately to promote the strengthening of ties between English and French Canada and tried valiantly, though largely unsuccessfully, to learn to speak French. He maintained a lifelong association with the Royal Canadian Regiment, serving as Colonel of the Regiment from 1993 until 1997. Appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 1986, he was a proud Canadian whose record of service through his long and full life has been an inspiring example and source of pride to his family, colleagues and many Friends. Friends will be received at 4 Lamport Avenue, Toronto (valet parking provided) on Sunday, April 27, 2008 between 2: 00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. A funeral service will be held on Monday, April 28, 2008 at 11: 30 a.m. at St. Clement's Church, 59 Briar Hill Avenue, Toronto.
