NIXON, Annie McPhail "Nan" (née McLEAN)
Nan NIXON passed away peacefully at Errinrung Residence in Thornbury on Monday May 26, 2008 at the age of 93. Born in Greenock, Scotland, she was the daughter of John and Lilius (née DELGARNO) McLEAN. At the age of 15 Nan immigrated to Canada with her parents and siblings. Although Nan received a limited education and faced many challenges in her earlier life, as was so often the case in those years, she was able to fulfill her most important dreams, those of raising her family and being a kind and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She is remembered by her family and Friends as a wise woman whose patience and forgiveness set examples for all to follow. She loved her home and ensured that it was always a welcoming environment for all and her homemaking skills were passed as a legacy to her children. Her home was always clean, the treadle sewing machine rarely resting as she made and re-made clothing for her family and the results of her knitting and quilting were cherished by all who received her homemade gifts. Above all Nan loved to play with the grandchildren sharing their laughter while enjoying checkers, dominoes, snakes and ladders and many card games. She encouraged her family to strive to succeed by endeavoring to do their best at whatever task might be in front of them. She shared her spirit with the gentle 'toughness' that was her inspiring strength of character. Nan was predeceased by her husband Robert Henry NIXON in 1956 when she was a woman of 41 years of age and she remained undaunted in her dedication that her family should know the warmth and security of home. She is remembered as a loving mother by her daughters Dorothy FROST of Thornbury, Isobel LEVACQUE of Collingwood and Debra Nixon McLEOD of Nottawa and she was predeceased by her son Bill NIXON. She is lovingly remembered as a dear mother-in-law by her daughter-in-law Betty (SANGSTER) Nixon VANDERLINDEN of Clayhurst, British Columbia, and by her son-in-law Roger McLEOD of Nottawa. She will also be remembered by her brother Jim McLEAN of Parksville, British Columbia and by sisters-in-law May McLEAN and Joy McLEAN, both of Meaford. Nan was also predeceased by sons-in-law Bill FROST, Ray LEVACQUE and Dale VANDERLINDEN and by brothers and sisters John McLEAN (Isabelle,) Jean SMITH (Harvey,) May MARTIN (Ray), David McLEAN, Tom McLEAN (Ethel), and Bill McLEAN. Nan will be most affectionately remembered as the devoted matriarch of her family including her seven grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren and her many nieces and nephews and their families. As Nan desired, a family service of committal and interment of her cremated remains, officiated by Reverend Dr. Brian GOODINGS of Grace United Church, was conducted at Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery on Friday May 30 where Nan's ashes were interred with her late husband. If so desired, and in memory of Nan, memorial donations to Thameswood Lodge, a residence for cancer patients in London, Ontario, would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, The Valley Chapel, in Thornbury to whom arrangements have been entrusted.

Dearest husband for over 53 years of Jacqueline (RUBANOWICZ of Paris, France,) beloved father of Evelyne (Michael GARDNER, Halifax,) Richard (Shona GODWIN, Montreal), Stephen (Michaela LINCOLN, Montreal), and Michael (Linda SALNA, Toronto.) He was the much adored Zeidah of Theo and Michaela Meltzer GARDNER, Alexander and Marieke GARDNER, Sebastian, Aidan, Jacob, Spencer, Ariella, Elijah, Kendra and Alison MELTZER. Also leaving behind brother Murray (Eleanor, Montreal,) sister Mary (Walter NACHUM, Florida,) cousin Lillian Meltzer GOLDSTEIN, many nieces, nephews, grand nieces, grand-nephews, and other cousins in Canada, the United States, France and Israel.
Will be greatly missed by Mary ROY MELTZER and Elizabeth BOSCO who provided loving home support over the decades.
Predeceased by his father Samuel MELTZER (who immigrated to Saint John from Vilna, Lithuania) and mother Alice {DRITZ} MELTZER (Vilna, Lithuania) who died in Saint John when Gar was only two, much-loved stepmother, Sarah BALAGENSKI (Warsaw, Poland,) and siblings Lillian (Sydney SCHOEN), Kaye (Barney COLTON), Edward, Anne (Jack LEVINE), Frances (Mischa GELTMAN) and Bill (Doreen.) He dearly loved his in-laws Simon RUBANOWICZ and Raymonde {GORDON} RUBANOWICZ who had also predeceased him. Gar was the kindest, most generous, fair, honourable, humble, optimistic, and evercourteous man who had an indomitable spirit to the very end, and had an irrepressible Gar Heart, that continued to beat long after the doctors thought it would. Gar always took the high road, always turned the other cheek, always had a good word with a smile for everyone. He was committed to promoting human rights, brotherhood, mutual respect, peace and community service throughout his life. He was active in the scouting movement, Akela for over 25 years with the Judaen and then the Eli Boyaner Cub Pack in Saint John. He considered each of his cubs as one of his boys. He delivered Meals on Wheels, offered pastoral care at the Saint John Regional Hospital, served on the Board of the Shaarei Zedek Synagogue, was a founding member and Commander of the Jewish War Veterans in Atlantic Canada, was a member of the Maritime Parkinsons Association, the North West Commercial Travellers' Association of Canada, Albion Masonic Lodge No. 1, the Saint John Multi-Cultural Association, B'nai Brith, RUSI, and past member of the Carlton Curling Club. Gar was a life member of the No. 2 Legion in Saint John having served in the Canadian army and then the airforce as an Officer Training Instructor during World War 2. After the war he was actively involved as an instructor with the air cadets. Gar believed in working hard, in doing one's best and realizing the fruit of one's labours for family and community. He was a ship chandler, the owner of Gar's Diner, the Gar Meltzer Sales, and a commercial salesman for over 40 years representing some 50 companies throughout Atlantic Canada. Six months on the road every year for decades, he developed a network of customers who became Friends who never forgot him for his acts of kindness and tzadkah. His good deeds were innumerable and we usually only heard by chance from those who were touched by his generosity and altruism. In 1992 he was awarded the Canada 125 Confederation Anniversary Medal for community service. And yet Gar never sought honours or recognition. Gar loved his family and he loved his home. He treasured his Friendship with life-long pal I. J. Davis. Thanks to caregivers Judy and Jackie who were so helpful and compassionate providing athome assistance in Saint John; special hugs to Donna who took such good care of him while visiting in Toronto. Much appreciation to the wonderful medical and nursing staff at Toronto East General Hospital where he spent his last days. Donations may be made to the Maritimes Parkinsons Association or to the Gar MELTZER Memorial Scholarship fund c/o the Toronto Dominion Bank, 78 Main Street West, Saint John, New Brunswick, E2M 3N3. Funeral was held at Brenan's Select Community Funeral Home, Paradise Row, Saint John, New Brunswick (506) 634-7424 on Wednesday April 30, 2008. Interment was in the Shaarei Zedek Cemetery, Westmorland Road, Saint John, New Brunswick. The family sat shivah at 55 Goodrich Street, Saint John, New Brunswick following the interment.

JUDGE, Shirley Ann (née HIBBERD)
Social worker, feminist, professor, partner, lover of books, gardens and road trips. Born September 22, 1938, in Surrey, England. Died February 4 in Ottawa of colon cancer, aged 69.
By Helen LEVINE and Donna JOHNSON, Page L6
In many ways, Shirley JUDGE came at the world in an old-fashioned British way. She was independent, courageous and outspoken, but had a certain personal reserve.
Born Shirley Ann HIBBERD, she was the responsible eldest of four girls raised in wartime England. Her earliest memories were of food rations, victory gardens, billeted Canadian soldiers and hiding in the "bomb shelter" under the stairs when air-raid sirens sounded.
A top-flight high-school student who dreamed of studying history at Oxford, Shirley was streamed into social work at the University of Bristol, a course of study "befitting a woman." Her first job was in a mining community. By age 23 she was co-ordinating adoptions for an entire county.
Shirley married in 1963, immigrating with her husband to Ottawa, where she worked in child welfare at the Children's Aid Society. The marriage ended after seven years. Shirley formed an enduring bond with Henry HOMONICK.
She became a highly respected psychiatric social worker at Ottawa's Queensway Carleton Hospital. When the head of her department died suddenly and a less-qualified male colleague was appointed as interim director, Shirley resigned in protest.
She joined the faculty of Carleton University's school of social work, teaching and organizing the graduate field placement program. The school's structural feminist approach fit with her convictions about social justice and women's equality. On the side she ran a small counselling practice and acted on the boards of various women's organizations.
Shirley had a lifelong love of learning. She earned a pilot's licence, was an expert gardener, took courses in retirement, belonged to a book club, and travelled. She was a member of a feminist "envisioning" group - nine women who met regularly for potluck suppers and discussions both personal and political.
She met her terminal diagnosis with true British grit and humour. She wanted full information and choices, including the option to die with dignity. In the end she fought to stay alive, for in spite of chemo, pain and loss of energy, Shirley found riches and meaning in the last year of her life. Dying was a kind of intense road trip in a foreign land, and she lived it fully, opening up about her fears, joys and hopes in a way she had never done before.
Her final project was audiotaping her experience of dying for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. At meetings, at parties, at chemo sessions or alone in the middle of a sleepless night, the tape recorder came out. Shirley loved having a project that challenged her and gave a sense of purpose to her dying.
Helen LEVINE and Donna JOHNSON are Shirley's Friends.

It is with great sadness that our family announces the death of our Father, Grandfather, Great-grandfather and Patriarch, in his 96th year on Friday, March 28, 2008 at The Apotex Centre, Baycrest. He will be greatly missed by his daughter, Donna and son-in-law Sheldon ROBINS, and his grandchildren Laurie and Carolin, David and Sharon, and Josh. His great-grandchildren Noah, Sarah, Jessica and Amy were his very special joys and he was indeed fortunate to have been able to live to meet them and watch them as they grew. In addition, Percy is mourned by his sister Betty and was pre-deceased by his brother-in-law Nat, and his brother and sister-in-law Sam and Esther. He was an adored uncle to Carolyn and Bill, Sharon and Les, Erle, and Eddie and Fern and a very special friend to so many, most of whom he out-lived. There are no words to express our gratitude to Percy's many caregivers at Baycrest especially Lorna, Elmeh, Joycelynn, Beverley, Cecil and Glenda. Their loving care made all the difference to him and eased our family's pain as we watched him slowly decline.

ROSS, Claire Isabel (née REID)
Died June 17th in Kingston, Ontario where her devoted daughter Cindy ensured that her final years were made comfortable. Claire was the loving daughter of Harold and Clara (SUTTON) REID of Montreal. When Claire grew up in Quebec higher education was a luxury only the affluent could afford. She was sent to secretarial school and then to work at an early age. However, this did not deter her from reading widely, developing a love of poetry, and learning everything she could. Indeed, Claire was a quick and able student who easily mastered anything she set about to learn, whether it was playing bridge, dancing, or learning to speak French. Later, her children came to depend upon her ability and strength of character. They rightly felt that she could do anything - and do it with loving kindness and grace. She could make clothes, hats, upholstery, draperies, pottery, all with her characteristic beauty and elegance. Lucky recipients treasured her hand knit sweaters as one of a kind works of art. Claire was an exceptional and sophisticated cook, who also had flawless taste in interior decorating; she could turn an ordinary room into a beautiful, cozy oasis. Although Claire had a quick and lively wit, she never criticized people or said an unkind word about anyone. She was always cheerful and loved fun as she made everyone feel happy and welcome while she provided endless hospitality. Her husband, Ralph, who died in 1969, often said that the luckiest day of his life was the day he met Claire. She is survived by her three adoring children, Deborah CAMPBELL (David) Fredericton, New Brunswick, Cynthia McKEGNEY (Brian) Sydenham, Ontario, and Ian ROSS (Cheryl) Toronto, and her five beloved grandchildren, Kate and Neal McKEGNEY, Ross CAMPBELL, and Madeleine and Evan ROSS. Also surviving are her three sisters, Mabel ADRIAN, Jessie REESE and Shirley RAMSAY for whom she was a loving sister. She also helped raise two step-daughters, Ruth LEVY and the late Mary KELTON, who were grateful for her compassion and generosity. She was the brilliant, shining light of our lives and we treasure her memory. In keeping with Claire's wishes, cremation will be followed by a private family service. In lieu of donations, please do something kind for someone today in memory of Claire.
