REHDER, John Edward " Ned" (1916-2008)
John Edward (Ned) REHDER passed away at Leaside Retirement Home on Wednesday July 9th, 2008 after and long and valiant struggle with dementia. Born in Bowmanville in 1916, he worked for the family business, The Bowmanville Foundry, until attending McGill University to study metallurgy. He graduated in 1943 and married Jocelyn BOWDEN. They took up residence in Windsor, Ontario until moving to Ottawa, where he worked for the Canadian Government at the Dept. of Mines and Metallurgy doing research and development. Later he moved to Montreal to take up the post of Vice President of R&D for the Canada Iron Co. While working for this firm he won the Peter L. Simpson gold medal from the American Foundrymen's Society. He stayed with Canada Iron until the 1960's when he left to work for himself as a Consultant. He and Jocelyn divorced in 1973 and in 1975 he moved to Toronto and continued his consulting business. In 1979 he married his second wife, Mignon ELKINS. Upon his retirement he was invited to the Department of Mines and Metallurgy at the University of Toronto as a research assistant. This involved doing work with the Department of Archeology, a subject that gave him the chance to indulge in his passion for history, with particular interest in the Minoan culture. Ned had over a thousand papers published in various trade magazines and journals, and, at the age of 85 had a book "The Mastery and Uses of Fire in Antiquity" published by McGill/ Queens University Press. It was re-published in paperback two years later. He leaves behind his five children from his first marriage; Christine HORNE, Eric, Jonathon, Mark and Michael, his daughters-in-law Maxine REHDER and Jane BIGGS and son-in-law Lee HORNE and his loving and devoted wife Mignon Elkins REHDER. Family will receive Friends at the York Visitation, Chapel and Reception Centre, 160 Beecroft Road (north of Sheppard Ave. west of Yonge St.), Toronto, 416-221-3404 on Monday July 14th from 3: 30 p.m. until time of funeral service in the chapel at 4: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Alzheimer's Society would be appreciated.

McLEOD, Phyllis Elizabeth (née LUCAS)
Age 85, passed away peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, on April 27, 2008 in Vernon, British Columbia. Phyllis will be dearly missed by Bruce, her loving husband of over 60 years, and her four sons: Ian (Pauline); Kevin (Jean); Roderick and Robert. She is also survived by 5 cherished grandchildren: Sarah REHILL (Shawn;) Kathleen ETHERINGTON (Marc) Heather ARDRON (Brad); Duncan McLEOD; Jenna McLEOD; 5 great-grandchildren: Tristan, Gavyn, Ava, Mersaia and Gwendolyn; sister: Doreen McMILLAN (Ken); brothers: Gordon LUCAS, David (Margaret) LUCAS, and numerous nieces and nephews. Phyllis was born and raised in rural Saskatchewan and following a brief stint working for the Australian Consulate in Washington, D.C. during the war, she and Bruce settled in London, Ontario where they raised their family until moving to Vernon in the late 1980's. Phyllis was an avid reader of fine literature, but was comforted most through regular reading and devotion of the scriptures. In her quiet moments, Phyllis entertained herself and others by playing all time popular music of the 40s and 50s on her piano. Phyllis had a quick wit and was a formidable and hilarious player of Scrabble. She was a devoted wife and mother to the very day of her passing. We are all very thankful to have been blessed by her sense of care and love. The family wish to extend their heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the caring staff of Vernon Jubilee Hospital and to the excellent care provided by her physician, Doctor David Naismith. Friends and family are planning a celebration of Phyllis' life to be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers and other tributes, people are encouraged to make a donation to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital, 2101 - 32 Street, Vernon, British Columbia V1T 5L2. Cremation arrangements are in the care of Vernon Dignity Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
