MAGNUSON, Rose Emma (née BELIVEAU)
On Tuesday, April 22, 2008, Rose Emma MAGNUSON passed away peacefully in her 91st year. Beloved wife for almost sixty years of the late Edgar Theodore MAGNUSON. Dear mother of Karen WEILER, mother-in-law of Bobby and grandmother of Nancy and Catherine. Sister of the late Patricia CROTEAU and the late Madgella CHAMBERS. Survived by sister Beatrice GENDRON, 93, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. Rose spent most of her life in Saskatchewan and enjoyed such outdoor activities as gardening, picking wild berries, fishing, boating and swimming. The long Saskatchewan winters turned her into an avid bridge player and she became a Life Master. Another favourite pastime was listening to music and she loved any music that had a beat. After moving to Toronto, she spent many happy hours attending local concerts and musical shows, always perfectly turned out with hat and gloves. A feisty, independent senior, she eventually succumbed to the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. The family wishes to express a very special thanks for their loving care, companionship and support, to her personal support worker, Neverlyn JAMES, and the other devoted members of her 24/7 team, Marialyn AGUILLON and Juvy BALQUIN. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Senior Persons Resident In North Toronto homecare program, the Victorian Order of Nurses, or the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care at Mount Sinai Hospital. The individuals within these organizations enabled Rose to end her days in dignity in her own surroundings. Mass of Christian Burial will be conducted in Blessed Sacrament Church, 24 Cheritan Avenue (Yonge Street south of Lawrence Avenue), on Thursday at 11 a.m. In accordance with her wishes, Rose will be cremated.

Facing fraud rap, United Way official commits suicide
Executive was confronted with evidence she embezzled at least $600,000 from a previous employer, charity's president confirms
By Timothy APPLEBY and Elizabeth CHURCH, Page A10
A senior United Way of Greater Toronto executive committed suicide last month after being confronted with evidence she embezzled at least $600,000 from a previous employer, United Way president Frances LANKIN confirmed last night.
Janet DONIO, the local United Way's vice-president for informational services and operational change management, died while under investigation for her activities at the Council of Ontario Universities, a lobby group where she worked for six years as chief information officer.
As well, Ms. DONIO's chief academic credentials - a Canadian university degree and a PhD from the United States - were found to be bogus, Ms. LANKIN said.
The irregularities were uncovered by the Deloitte and Touche accounting firm and involved the payment of funds - said to be between $600,000 and $700,000 - for services never produced, and which instead were allegedly being siphoned off by Ms. DONIO.
The story began to emerge in March after the Council of Ontario Universities hired someone to fill Ms. DONIO's old position.
"We found pretty clear evidence of fraud," said chief executive officer Paul GENEST, stressing that no other individuals appear to have been involved. Nor were any improprieties uncovered in a second Deloitte and Touche audit at the United Way, which hired Ms. DONIO in February, 2007.
The Council of Ontario Universities gets some government funds, but most of its revenue derives from levies paid by the universities it represents and it will be seeking to recoup its losses from its insurer, Mr. GENEST said.
When Deloitte and Touche began unearthing irregularities, Toronto police fraud investigators were notified, but they were awaiting completion of the audit and apparently never interviewed Ms. DONIO, Ms. LANKIN said.
On the day the United Way was told of the allegation, - May 5 - Ms. LANKIN and chief operating officer Catherine SMITH met with Ms. DONIO, 56, and told her she was being placed on a paid leave while the investigation continued.
"It was a difficult conversation," Ms. LANKIN recounted.
She and Ms. SMITH then drove Ms. DONIO home to her west-end Toronto house, where she was found dead the next day.
A coroner's report said the cause of death was "undetermined," according to a family account relayed to Ms. LANKIN.
As for Ms. DONIO's phony academic credentials - a degree from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and a doctorate in cognitive science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - it appears that the Council of Ontario Universities did not check them.
Neither did the United Way, relying instead on character references from the council and another former employer, Ms. LANKIN said.
"Those credentials weren't critical to the job we hired her for, so we didn't check them."
The United Way of Greater Toronto was established in 1956 and supports a network of 200 health and social service agencies. Last year it raised a record $108.1-million.
Ms. DONIO's previous experience included a stint at TVO, as creative director of educational television, and at the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs, where she was an assistant director.
A member of the Biinjitiwaabik Zaaging Anishinaabek Band, whose home is on the shores of Lake Nipigon in Northern Ontario, Ms. DONIO is survived by two adult sons, Jason and Robyn DONIO. Her former husband, Marcel DONIO, is a justice of the peace in Thunder Bay.
Financially, Ms. DONIO's affairs appeared unremarkable at the time of her death. In February, 2006, she purchased her house in west Toronto's Junction area, for $540,000, and in January of this year she remortgaged the property for just over $523,000.
"Jan DONIO was a respected and admired member of the United Way team," the United Way said in a statement. " We grieve her loss and the difficulty faced by her family."

EVANS, Kenneth Warren
Passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 9, 2008 in the Palliative Care Unit of Parkwood Hospital, London, Ontario, with his wife, Marianne, by his side. Ken was born in Montreal, August 31, 1926, an only child to the late Albert EVANS and Dora THORNE. At the age of fourteen Ken and his parents moved to Toronto where he attended Oakwood Collegiate Institute. At age seventeen he left school and embarked on a fifty-two year career in the property/casualty insurance industry. His first job was with the venerable old British firm, the Union Insurance Society of Canton on King Street. Ken began as a clerk in the accounting department and eventually became a marine underwriter. This Company spawned many success stories in the property/casualty insurance industry. Due to a General Manager by the name of Jim Price, who died suddenly, a group was formed to honour his memory and was named 'The Old Cantonese Society'. This group met yearly at a black tie dinner in a downtown Toronto hotel and was officially disbanded after 40 years. In 1944, and shortly after his eighteenth birthday Ken enlisted in the Army during World War 2 he never left Canadian soil and did the usual training but, alas, the War ended in 1945 and he was as discharged. Upon release from service he returned to the Union of Canton. He was an articulate and well read man with a sharp wit and a penchant for silly humour. His interest in music was catholic and open-minded, ranging from E. Power Biggs to Frank Sinatra, Neil Young and the Beatles. Ken enjoyed many late hours with his father philosophizing and listening to their shared taste in music over a bottle of Remy Martin. His son, George, also had the good fortune to spend many late hours with his father, and listening to a new brand of music that Ken eventually embraced. He moved to The Travelers Insurance Company and was eventually appointed Assistant Manager for Canada. In 1969 he was asked to take over the Canadian Operation of the Reliance Insurance Co. of Philadelphia. In 1973 Ken was asked to join The Insurance Corporation of Ireland (Canada) Ltd. of which he was so proud because he had birthed and nurtured the Canadian Operation and, ultimately, was devastated by its shut down due to overseas in-house problems in the London office. Over a twelve year period Ken was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Operation. He enjoyed over twenty years of membership at Markland Wood Country Club. His group of four golfing buddies was known as the T.A.T.S. Group (That's A True Story). They enjoyed each other's company and shared a lot of laughter together, with some golf thrown in for good measure. Ken is the last member of that group to pass on. He is predeceased by former wife Ethel. Together, they raised three children - Warren, Victoria and George (Hazel); grandfather to Michael Warren, Louisa and Noah. A man who was known to take a drink, Ken had enormous stamina and drive and loved to be the last man to leave the party. He was also regarded as a man of integrity and, with all the success that he enjoyed in business, he never lost the common touch. But the last years were not kind to Ken as his body succumbed to a lifetime of hard work, drinking and smoking. He will be lovingly remembered by his devoted wife, Marianne GENISE, who nursed him throughout his long illness. His adored Labrador, Bella, was a constant source of comfort and joy to him. Special thanks to Hospice of London; Personal Support Workers Saffie, Linda and Helen; Doctor Maurice BUTCHEY (who's sartorial attire Ken always admired;) nurses Cheryl, Barb, Liz and Mary in the Palliative Care Unit of Parkwood Hospital. Special thanks, also, to wonderful Friends for their tireless devotion throughout Ken's illness; the daily phone calls, chauffeuring, visiting, meals, meals and more meals, really good humour and, of course, caring for our Bella. Visitation will be held at the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, on Friday from 2: 00-4:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m. A Celebration of Ken's life will be conducted at Saint Paul's Cathedral, 472 Richmond Street, on Saturday, February 16th, 2008 at 1: 30 p.m. with Archdeacon D. Ian Grant officiating. Cremation with interment of ashes at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto at a later date. If so desired, donations may be made to Hospice of London. 'death is not the end'

Nelson continued to be a faithful member of the Royal Canadian Legion. He will be fondly remembered by his good Friends Ian and Sheila McKILLOP, and also all the many Friends he made at Tim Horton's on Colborne Road. His nickname was "Cowboy" because he always wore his western hat, boots and jeans - a throw back to his younger days around horses. He loved animals all his life.

We will all miss him dearly, but know that he is now with his beloved Audrey and they are back together and in God's hands.
