KERR, Samuel Aubrey
It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Samuel Aubrey KERR on February 19, 2008 at the age of 92. Predeceased by his beloved wife and solid supporter of sixty-three years Elsie Ruth (née SANDS- YAWORSKI). Admired and respected father of Ernie (Louise MARSHALL / TYSON), Robert (Angie CHIEW), grandfather to Stewart (Tonia KEIZER,) Mathew (Autumn PEER fiancee,) Jennifer, and Amy PILLING, great-grandfather to Brendan, Ty and Dominic. He leaves his loving brother Professor Donald Peter (Ruth HIGGINS deceased). Aubrey was born in Orillia, November 29, 1915. He attended Oakwood Collegiate in Toronto. Following studies at the University of Toronto he enrolled in the graduate program at U.B.C. (Vancouver) obtaining his M.A. (Geology) in 1942. Immediately following this he was recruited by Imperial Oil as part of Canada's war effort to search for oil in Southern Alberta. After years of exploration with Aubrey as field geologist, Leduc 'blew in' February 13, 1947, changing the course of Canadian history, making Alberta a major player in the world oil market. In 1959 Aubrey was chosen by the National Energy Board as Chief Geologist and the family moved to Ottawa. Following success in the capital he retired and returned to Calgary in 1975. He turned his attention to an intense study of the history of Alberta's oil industry by collecting and documenting a wealth of information. He interviewed and taped many 'oil patch' personalities leaving a large collection to the Glenbow Museum Archives, Calgary. All of this culminated in eight great books (including Leduc, Redwater and Atlantic #3). In 1998 he received an honourary Doctors degree from the University of Calgary and was inducted into the Petroleum Hall of Fame in Leduc. He participated in numerous professional organizations including the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum and Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta. He was involved in the Anglican church. Both he and Elsie enjoyed annual escapes from the -30 degree weather to visit Barbados and Victoria. He continued to be involved with his writing even to his ninety-first year. The family wish to thank the staff of Trinity Lodge, Calgary for their decisive professional actions and care as well as the outstanding medical staff of the Rockyview Hospital, Calgary. Service at Anglican Christ Church Calgary to be announced.

PEEREN, Henricus Philippus Maria " Harry"
Leny's beloved husband and our beloved pa, passed away on Sunday, May 25, 2008 at the age of 74 years. Pa will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed by Leny, his wife and love of his life of 52 years, his children: Charles (Barb) of Kitchener, Ontario, Mark (Cathie) of Naramata, Kathleen (Marcellino VAN HOOF) PEEREN of Eindhoven, Holland, Robert (Jackie) of Kingston, Ontario, Sergeant Anthony (Margaret) of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Lucas of Summerland, seven grandchildren; Tyler, Kyle, Chelsea, Graeme, Kristopher, Mark Jr., and Sarah, siblings, Willy, Mieke of Penticton, Dientje, Gerard, Toos all of Holland and Jetje of California, U.S.A.

They married and moved to Canada in 1956, living first in London, Ontario, where they raised six children, then in 1979 they moved their family to Penticton. Penticton was pa's paradise. He spent his happiest years here, building his home, playing golf at the Summerland Golf and Country club, walking his Samoyeds in the mountains. If you live on Wiltse Flats, you would know pa. He walked there every day with his big white dog and had a kind word for everyone he met. Pa had his favourite walks to the "poppy tree' to "the throne" and to the dam. Pa marvelled at the views and the beauty of the Okanagan Valley. He taught us to find happiness in the simple things. For pa, waking up in the morning meant it was going to be a good day. Pa loved us and we never doubted that. We were his pride and joy. Mom was (quite simply) his life. Their love was classic, easy and beautiful. Prayers will be held, 7: 00 p.m. Thursday, May 29, 2008 followed by a Funeral Mass 11: 00 a.m., Friday, May 30, 2008 from Saint Ann's Catholic Church, 1296 Main Street, Penticton, British Columbia. V2A 5G2 with Father Pat Monette celebrant, with a gathering in the church hall afterwards. Everyone who knew pa is welcome to join us. Pa never liked the colour black, so we kindly ask that you wear casual, colourful attire. The family would like to give their thanks to the Penticton Regional Hospital staff, Doctor Hedges and especially to nurses Kathy and Michelle from the second floor. Donations in Harry's memory may be made to the Canadian Alzheimer Society if Friends so desire. "Pa, your deck is a masterpiece".

JAMES, Gayle Marlene (née GILCHRIST)
(April 15, 1940-May 30, 2008)
Gayle Marlene Gilchrist JAMES passed away on Friday, May 30, 2008 at the age of 68 years with close family members by her side. Gayle met lymphoma and death as she lived her life; carefully researched, discussed at length and then accepted the outcome with a calm dignity and a touch of black humour. Born April 15, 1940 in rural Alberta, she attended a one room school taught by her father, high school in Castor and on to the University of Alberta (B.A. English 1962) and University of Toronto (B.S.W. 1963, M.S.W. 1966). Gayle was predeceased by her parents, Lela (GREENWALT) and Don GILCHRIST, her brother, Don, her sister, Norma, and her beloved canine, Lady. She will be missed by her brother, Garry (Elly) Victoria, British Columbia; her nieces and nephews, Debby DOBSON (Ed HALL), Becky DOBSON, Melanie DOBSON (Graeme ROCKER) all of Nova Scotia, Kim DOBSON (Ramona KRAEMER) of Ontario; Laura, Jacqueline and Nicole GILCHRIST of Victoria she will also be missed by her grand-nieces, nephews and god children, Karen, Esther, Alex, Chris, Sarah, Emily, Adam, Patrick, Zac, Linda, Ben, Erin and Sean; as well as her great-grandnephew, Nahze; honorary aunt, Jean PEETERS of Victoria, British Columbia as well as by Doctor K.W. JAMES. She started her social work career with the Alberta Child Guidance Clinic before joining the Education Clinic, Edmonton Public School Board in 1967 and then the University of Calgary, the Faculty of Social Work in Edmonton in 1975 before moving to Calgary in 1994 and retiring as Associate Professor Emeritus in 2004. While working with students with learning disabilities and their families, she developed a consummate passion for public issues that led to a life-long involvement in social advocacy and public policy. Her dedication to social work and inspirational leadership was legendary, holding many professional association positions, first as Registrar (1974-1977), President (1979-1981) and Treasurer (1996-98) of the Alberta Association of Social Workers and President of the Canadian Association of Social Workers (1981-83). Gayle's international leadership began in 1978 and was capped by being elected Canada's first President of the International Federation of Social Workers (1988-1992). She was instrumental in Canada hosting the first world social work conference in 1984 and the establishment of the International Federation of Social Workers Human Rights Commission in 1988 to advocate for missing, wrongfully detained and tortured social workers and students. Appointed by the Prime Minister to Chair the National Council of Welfare (1986-1989), she was the senior non-governmental organization delegate on the Minister of Health and Welfare's social policy mission to the Republic of China and the only woman and only non-governmental organization member of Canada's delegation to the United Nations Welfare Ministers Inter-Regional Consultation on Developmental Social Welfare in 1987. She was a founding member of the Edmonton Association for Children with Learning Disabilities, Canadian Research Institute for Law and Family, Canadian Social Work Foundation, Weiler Award Trust; long time board member of the Canadian Council of Social Development and International Council of Social Welfare, Canada; and member of Kings College Circle, University of Toronto. Her many honours included an Alberta Achievement Award (Excellence Category), Exemplary Contribution Award (Alberta Association of Social Workers), 75th Anniversary Award (University of Toronto, Faculty of Social Work), Outstanding National Service Award (Canadian Association of Social Workers), Teaching Excellence Award (University of Calgary), Arbor Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service (University of Toronto), inaugural Andrew Mouravieff-Apostol Medal (International Federation of Social Workers) and Lifetime Achievement Award (Pulse of Social Work, Calgary). Gayle was an inspiration and beloved mentor to countless students, colleagues, Friends and family. She was uncompromising in her support of students and an incisive media commentator on social policy issues. Unphased by her illness in her final years, she devoted untold hours of volunteer expert witness testimony to help victims of eugenic sterilizations win a landmark class action settlement. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, those touched by Gayle may forget her exact words or the specifics of what she did, but they will never forget how special she made them feel. A special thank you to Doctor T. Thaell, Doctor E. Liu, and to the staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre for the excellent care they provided to Gayle over the last seven years. A Memorial Celebration of Gayle's Life will be held at the Rozsa Centre, University of Calgary, on Monday, July 14, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will follow. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
