QUAIL, Margery " Bunny" (née CAMBON) (1918-2008)
Quietly, on Easter Friday, at Sunnybrook Veterans Hospital. Margery CAMBON was born in Quebec City on February 15, 1918 to George CAMBON, an army musician, and his wife Lucy DUFFIELD. Bunny was amongst the first Canadian women soldiers to cross the Atlantic in 1939 to join the war effort. As a nursing sister she was chosen by Dorothy MacHEM, future president of Womens College Hospital, to join the first plastic surgery unit in Basingstoke England. Bunny met her future husband, John QUAIL, who was an injured soldier on her hospital ward. They were married by her uncle Reverend John DUFFIELD, in St. Stephen's church in Twickenham, England. Bunny was model of her professionalism as a nurse, latterly at Oakville Trafalgar Hospital where she was eventually persuaded to retire in her 68th year. Bunny and John had a great love of family and Friends and fun. Their dinner table was seldom empty, often entertaining a surprise guest by lifting a glass of good cheer. Bunny is predeceased by her husband John QUAIL, her sister Muriel and her brother Doctor Ken CAMBON. She is survived by her sister Noreen and her brother Austen CAMBON as well as her loving children Susan FITZGERALD (Michael), Judi QUAIL (Collin BRADLEY), Rev. Charles QUAIL (Joy) and David (Margaret NELLIGAN). Bunny's most cherished legacy is certainly her grandchildren, Rebecca, Julia, Caitlin, Emily, Liza, Aileen and Jack. For those wishing to send flowers, please consider donating to the High Risk Mothers and Babies program at Sunnybrook Health Center. A Celebration of Bunny's life will be held at Central Baptist Church, 340 Rebecca Street, in Oakville on Saturday, March 29th at 11 a.m. Please direct donations and any other inquires to Oakview Funeral Home, 905 842-2252.

ROBINSON, J. Lewis
(July 9, 1918-July 19, 2008)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather - J. Lewis 'Lew' ROBINSON - one of Canada's first Geography professors. Lewis passed away peacefully with his family by his side after suffering a stroke the day after celebrating his 90th birthday. Survived by his wife and partner of 63 years, Josephine (née ROWAN,) son David (Zonda NELLIS and daughter Alexandra;) daughters Jo-Anne and Patricia (David SSAINTURENT and children Michael and Joanna.) Born in Leamington and raised in Windsor, Lewis studied at The University of Western Ontario (B.A.) Syracuse University (M.A.) and Clark University (PhD). In 1946 Lewis was invited by University of British Columbia President, Norman Mackenzie, to start a Geography Division within the Department of Geology, and in 1958 he started the Geography Department at University of British Columbia, serving as the first head until 1968; and remained as a Professor until his retirement in 1984. Lewis made an outstanding contribution to Geography in Canada - writing 14 books, developing 9 wall maps and contributing to hundreds of articles - particularly on the geography of British Columbia and the Canadian Arctic. His textbooks and wall maps of Canada were used in universities and schools throughout the country. During his 48 years of teaching Geography at University of British Columbia, he taught thousands of students earning him the reputation as an outstanding teacher and mentor. In recognition of these contributions, University of British Columbia awarded him a Master Teacher Award (1977). Lewis also received numerous other honours and awards throughout his distinguished career, including the Centennial Medal and Silver Jubilee Medal from the Government of Canada, the Massey Medal of the Royal Canadian Geographical Service and two university honourary degrees. Lewis retired from University of British Columbia in 1984, but remained an active force at the institution, establishing the Alumni Association's Professors Emeriti Division - the first organization of its kind in Canada. He was also an enthusiastic supporter of University of British Columbia sports and was the Captain of the University of British Columbia Old Birds Seniors Hockey Team until he hung his skates up for the last time at the age of 77. Lewis, along with his wife Jo, were active members of the University of British Columbia Faculty Club and Gourmet Group and even co-authored a cookbook together. Lewis was also deeply involved in Deaf Education and Sports Development in Canada, including serving as President of the Western Institute for the Deaf. The family wishes to extend a special thank to Lewis's longtime physician, Doctor Bradley Fritz and to his wonderful caregivers - Mila and Hilda. A memorial service celebrating Lewis ROBINSON's life and legacy will be held at Cecil Green Park House, on October 3, 2008 at 1 p.m. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in memory to the J. Lewis Robinson Memorial Scholarship fund at University of British Columbia (Attn: Maryn Ellis, 500-5950 University Blvd., Vancouver, British Columbia, V6T 1Z3). Geographer, mapmaker, explorer, writer, teacher, mentor, husband, father and friend - the kindest man we ever knew - the boy who ran so fast - you taught us kindness, generosity and usefulness. We will miss you - you gave us the world and more - thank you.

NELSON, Ron, 84
Centreman Was A Star Of Pre-War Ontario Hockey League
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S11
Victoria -- Ron NELSON, a crafty centreman with the Oshawa Generals' wartime hockey dynasty, has died in Thunder Bay. He was 84.
The Generals won seven consecutive Ontario Hockey League championships from 1937-38 to 1943-44. For three of those seasons, Mr. NELSON was a star with a reputation for scoring timely goals.
The Generals were favoured to win the Memorial Cup junior championship against the Winnipeg Generals in 1943, only to be stymied by 17-year-old goaltender Doug (Stonewall) Jackson. A turning point in the series came in the fifth game of the best-of-seven series when the goalie blocked a shot by Mr. NELSON in the third period to preserve a one-goal lead and the victory.
"It might have all been different if that shot had gone in," Oshawa coach Charlie Conacher said after the game. The opinion was echoed by the opposing goalie who said, "That was the one that broke their hearts."
Winnipeg won the series in six games.
By the time Oshawa took the Memorial Cup the following season, Mr. NELSON was serving in the wartime army. One of his Oshawa teammates, Albert (Red) TILSON, a lance corporal in the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, was killed in action in Europe. The Red Tilson Trophy is now awarded to the Ontario Hockey League's most outstanding player.
Mr. NELSON later played senior hockey for the Quebec Aces, the Sydney Millionaires and the Glace Bay Miners, among other teams. In playoffs for the Allan Cup with the Millionaires in 1949, Mr. NELSON scored six goals and eight assists in 16 games.
Mr. NELSON spent 44 years working for General Motors, the automobile manufacturer that sponsored his Oshawa junior team.
He died at a long-term care facility on March 7. He leaves two sons, four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by two wives, two brothers, and two sisters.

Ron was born on April 27, 1923 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. As a young man, he settled in Oshawa and spent his entire working life of 44 years at General Motors of Canada. During the war years he served in the Army as a motorized vehicle driver trainer at Camp Borden. Ron and his wife Jean moved to Thunder Bay in 1998 to be closer to family. Ron and Jean enjoyed their many trips travelling and had particularly special memories of their 17 winters spent in Florida. An outstanding athlete, he enjoyed a remarkable hockey career playing junior hockey for the Oshawa Generals (two Memorial Cup Finals); senior hockey for the Quebec Aces, Sidney Millionaires, Glace Bay Miners, Peoples Credit Jewellers (Toronto Hockey League), Smith Truckmen (Wren Blair's first hockey team) and Orillia Pontiacs (league Most Valuable Player). Ron was also an exceptional fastball player. As the catcher for Oshawa Tony's Senior A team he participated in two world tournaments and was inducted into the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the Oshawa 'Colts' Intermediate 'A' fastball team. He also managed to maintain a 185 average for his ten pin bowling team. Later he developed a passion for golf.

STANNERS, James Ellwood
(July 16, 1920-March 8, 2008)
Passed away peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Villa in Dundas, Ontario in his eighty- eighth year. Predeceased by his beloved wife Margaret (née HART.) He is survived by his three children Robert (Victoria,) Joan NELSON (Les) and Barbara PHILIPS (John,) loving companion of many years Frances Mete and his six beloved grandchildren. Jim was born and lived his entire life in Toronto. He attended Harbord Collegiate Institute and the University of Toronto graduating in civil engineering. Throughout his life he passionately pursued an engineering career both as a partner in a large engineering firm and then as a consultant. He enjoyed travelling both as part of his career and for pleasure. He covered the world several times as he mixed his keen interest in engineering with that of people and places. This included visits to Russia and Cuba during the 1960's. Jim was a caring, fun loving and active individual with a keen sense of humour which he retained to the end. He loved to alpine ski, swim and play tennis. He encouraged and took many individuals, including his son, on around-the-lake swims at Cliff House in the Muskoka's (accompanied by a rowboat). An active member of the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club for over forty-five years Jim continued daily to have lunch, meet with Friends and walk around the cricket pitch (three times) well into his eighties. For over twenty years he enjoyed his twice yearly trips to his townhouse at Seabrook Island, South Carolina to cycle, walk the beach, and of course play tennis. Jim's legacy of ongoing concern, support, humour and keen interest in his children, grandchildren, companion Frances and Friends throughout his life will be forever cherished and remembered. His was truly a life well lived. The family would like to express our appreciation to the caregivers at both Number 4 Teddington (Toronto) and Saint_Joseph's Villa (Dundas, Ontario) for making Jim's last years comfortable. Visitation will be held at the Trull Funeral Home "North Toronto Chapel", 2704 Yonge Street (5 blocks south of Lawrence) on Thursday from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. Funeral Service will be held at Fairlawn United Church (Fairlawn Avenue, west of Yonge Street) on Friday at 11 a.m. with a short luncheon to follow. Interment at the Park Lawn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family asks that a donation be made, if desired, to a charity of your choice.
