LOUGHEED, Edith Cavell
A lovely Remembrance to Celebrate the Life of Edith Cavell LOUGHEED (December 1, 1916-January 30, 2008) was held on February 2, 2008 in the city of Mississauga.
The service for Edith was held at Lorne Park Baptist Church with many Friends and family present. Edith was born to Jacob and Mary (COUTTS) LOUGHEED on the 4th Line of Osprey Township: Edith was the last living descendant of the 12 children in the family. Brothers and sisters included Margaret, Christopher, Ernest, George, Janet, Eva, Wildon, Edna, John, Mary and Jacob Alvin (J.A.). Edith attended school in Maxwell and had dreamed of being a teacher and writer, but as the 30's depression came, priorities changed.
Edith and her sister Mary, moved to Brampton taking a position as domestic house keepers where they remained with the same family for 30 years. At this point, Edith and Mary opened a catering business offering the finest of foods for parties and banquets.
After Edith's love of cooking came her next love; writing. She began writing short stories and published many of them as well as a cookbook. She also worked in a Bramalea flower shop learning the fine art of floral arrangements for three years.
Edith then retired to enjoy life to the fullest, travelling east and west to visit Friends and relatives. Neither sister married so came to live together all their adult life travelling and working together until Mary's passing ten years ago.
Edith moved to the Erin Mills Lodge, Mississauga in 2005 to enjoy what she quoted as her "oasis of kindness and beauty". Her new Friends at the lodge encouraged her creativity even further when she wrote and published her last writings at the age of 90.
We feel honoured to have known and loved this fine lady who was our Great Aunt. Her wit and humour will remain with us for many years. May God Bless.

Elizabeth, or Buzz, as she was affectionately known by her closest of Friends, made lasting impressions throughout her lifetime.

This was followed by 38 dedicated years as a dietician at Burwash Hall, Victoria University, University of Toronto. She retired in 1983 to Niagara-on-the-Lake and more recently Virgil.
Buzz's modesty was outshone by her generosity, and she provided much quiet support of many non-profit organizations throughout her retirement years. As per Elizabeth's wishes, a private family service will take place on April 12, 2008. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Chapel of the Morgan Funeral Homes. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Palliative Care, Pleasant Manor Retirement Village in Virgil, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

Search for snowmobilers ends in tragedy
Bodies discovered under the ice as Lake Simcoe thaws with mild weather and freezes again in cold snap
By Anthony REINHART, Page A8
Virginia, Ontario -- At a time of year when it's too early to trust the ice, Darlene CAMERON took comfort when her husband, Willie, pledged to stay off Lake Simcoe on New Year's Day.
He'd just taken delivery of a 2008 Ski-Doo on December 21, and the 40-year-old father of two said he wasn't about to risk losing it, or harming himself, for the sake of catching a few thrills with his snowmobiling buddy, Steve DOCHERTY, 43.
When neither man returned home Tuesday night, any such comfort turned to fear. When their bodies were found under the lake ice off Georgina Island late yesterday, the fear turned to grief.
The discovery of the bodies sent a chill through an already frigid day of searching by York Region and Georgina Island police, firefighters, the victims' families, Friends and area residents, fuelled by the faint hope that somehow, some way, they would turn up alive and unhurt.
"They're responsible sledders, they're not idiots," Ms. CAMERON told Friends inside the Virginia Beach Marina and Restaurant, the unofficial community hub in the tiny settlement of Virginia, a few hours before the bodies were found. "I just can't figure out how two of them can disappear. Two of them."
But, when volunteer searchers on their own risky snowmobile foray found a helmet atop the ice off the island's northeast shore at 4: 45 p.m., police had their first firm clue that the men had indeed ventured far out onto the lake, despite uncertain ice conditions and whiteouts on Tuesday afternoon.
Police searchers descended from a helicopter shortly afterward and found the first body, using poles, in three to four metres of water. The second body was found at about 9 p.m.
It is believed the men fell into a patch of open water, and that the water then froze over as the temperature plunged overnight.
The changeability of conditions in what is still early winter only underscores the danger the men and their searchers faced throughout the ordeal, despite their extensive snowmobiling experience and familiarity with the area, said Sergeant John LOUGHRY, who conducted the search for York Regional Police.
"The ice is treacherous enough that at any given time somebody could be going through," Sgt. LOUGHRY said. "The lake is dangerous, and it's going to stay dangerous."
Ms. CAMERON had not expected her husband to encounter danger when he set off to meet Mr. DOCHERTY on Tuesday at about 12: 30 p.m. A few hours before the first body was found yesterday, she stood shivering by the lakeshore and recounted his last words to her.
"Do you mind me going out for a boot with Steve?" Mr. CAMERON asked his wife. "We're not going on the lake; it's not safe and you can't see a foot in front of you."
With that, the two men headed off, and were last seen travelling north along Sunkist Road - toward the lake.
The search effort included two search-and-rescue helicopters, one belonging to police and the other from Canadian Forces Base Trenton; several propeller-powered air boats, some equipped with heat-sensing infrared equipment; and a pair of police snowmobiles.
Dozens of area residents joined in on snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles to comb trails around the small settlement of Virginia, where both men lived, and nearby Georgina Island, home to the Chippewa First Nation, which sits in plain view about one kilometre offshore.
There was precious little to see on New Year's Day when the men headed off in whiteout conditions.
"It was horrible," said Felicia SISI, a server at the Virginia Beach Marina and Restaurant, on the waterfront where police placed their command post.
"You couldn't even see the island."
Like many here, Ms. SISI knew both men.
"They're my neighbours," she said. "One lives in front of me and the other one lives behind me."
Mr. DOCHERTY's rock band performed regularly at community events, and the CAMERONs came into the restaurant for breakfast most Sundays.
People here are well accustomed to severe winters, and to keeping close tabs on ice conditions, not only for recreational reasons but for practical ones - an ice road is the only link between Georgina Island and the mainland for much of the winter.
That road, however, follows a specific band of shallow water that freezes earlier than deeper waters nearby, as evidenced by the slushy ferry channel just west of it that remained in use yesterday.
"This lake is ever-changing," Sgt. LOUGHRY said.
When police put an airboat onto the ice just after midnight yesterday morning, the infrared sensor quickly began to measure wild variations in its thickness, "from open water to a foot thick," he said.
"Five miles straight out from here, you are on open water - or you were this morning," the officer said, noting yesterday's severe drop in temperature.
While Mr. CAMERON and Mr. DOCHERTY were universally described as responsible and experienced snowmobilers, police nonetheless had to include the lake in their search, based on the men's departure route from home.
"If you're last seen northbound on Sunkist Road, where do you snowmobile from there?" Sgt. LOUGHRY asked, before answering his own question. "At some point, you're going to use the lake."
Police also combed hundreds of kilometres of trails that lead from the nearby Pefferlaw River, a known destination for the two men in the past.
Mr. CAMERON was carrying a cellphone, but hadn't answered any calls since his wife began calling him about four hours after he left home.
With an array of television cameras rolling, her voice broke as she described what her husband and his friend were wearing, in hopes the information might yield clues to their disappearance.
"If anybody has seen them, Steve has a Yamaha coat; it's blue and white, it's brand new, he just bought it at the sled show this year," she said.
"Willie has a brand new Ski-Doo coat; it's yellow and black, mainly yellow with all the reflectors. It was brand new. I just bought it for him for his birthday, at the sled show."

Ordinary day, extraordinary tragedy
Couple killed on Highway 400 remembered as truck drivers await next court date
By Susan KRASHINSKY, Page A12
It was the kind of day that shouldn't have been remarkable at all, much less tragic.
On a cloudy Saturday, Don LOURIE got into his car. His wife, Elsie, was in the passenger's seat. The Scarborough couple set off along Highway 400 on a pleasure trip to Rama, Ontario
Meanwhile, Gurmail Singh BRAICH and Ali BASER steered their dump trucks onto the same highway - another afternoon on the job.
Before the end of the day, the LOURIEs would be dead, Mr. BRAICH and Mr. BASER would be in custody and three families would have their lives upended.
At the funeral yesterday, Dan LOURIE remembered his parents as high-spirited, generous and full of stories.
"I will never tire of Don and Elsie's wonderful adventures," he said.
For 21 years, the LOURIEs ran Chunky Fries, a chip truck at the 400 Market. When Mr. LOURIE sold the wagon last year, he had hoped to have more free time, manager Scott SAUNDERS said.
"You could always count on Don to be a gentleman. He was a great man to know," he said.
On Saturday, a dump truck headed south on Highway 400 collided with the concrete median. The tailgate came off the truck and flew into the northbound lanes, where it crashed through the windshield of an oncoming sport utility vehicle.
Elsie LOURIE was killed instantly, and Mr. LOURIE died shortly after. They were both 75.
Mr. BRAICH, of Brampton, is charged with dangerous driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death, while Mr. BASER, of Toronto, is charged with dangerous driving.
Defence counsel Rudi COVRE is representing both of them. He described them as hardworking family men caught in a tragic situation.
"Three families' lives have been destroyed," he said in an interview Wednesday.
Neither man had a previous criminal record.
Mr. BRAICH was released Tuesday on $100,000 bail. Mr. BASER was granted bail on Wednesday, at $30,000.
Their bail conditions forbid them to drive or even have keys to a motor vehicle, Crown counsel Harold DALE said in an interview.
Standing outside the courthouse in Newmarket on Wednesday, Mr. BASER's teenage son said the truck-driving job was the best work his father had found since coming to Canada from Turkey about a decade ago.
"He's the only one working in the family," said 16-year-old Ali. "What are we going to do now?"
He stubbed out his cigarette and excused himself. "I got to go get my dad," he said.
Mr. BRAICH and Mr. BASER will return to court in May.
