Teacher devoted to children
Kay McLAUGHLIN saw her career as an 'investment' in children.
By Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Mon., March 3, 2008
Wilma DE ROND credits her Grade 8 teacher Kay McLAUGHLIN with helping her through a difficult time.
"She was the first female teacher I had since my mother passed away," said DE ROND, education director of the London District Catholic school board. "I had already gone through a lot of change.
"She was just a steady hand and that's what I needed," DE ROND said.
McLAUGHLIN, whose career in education inspired others to follow, died February 24 She was 92.
Her daughter, Kathy FRAUMENI, is a school principal. Granddaughter Kate VAUTHIER teaches and Mary Kate FRAUMENI, another granddaughter, aspires to teach.
An elementary teacher in the Catholic system, then a three-time trustee on the board that preceded the London District Catholic school board, McLAUGHLIN's life revolved around children, those who knew her said.
She trained to become a teacher in Saint John, N.B., where she was born in 1916.
She met her future husband, Maurice, at a skating rink one frosty day while a student and the couple later kept in touch.
They married in 1940 and and raised five daughters and a son. The young family moved frequently with each job transfer Maurice had while dealing trucks and farm equipment.
"We were a close family because we moved together," recalled her daughter Patricia McLAUGHLIN of London.
They settled in London in 1967 where Kay McLAUGHLIN taught at Notre Dame, St. Paul and Saint Anne schools.
When she retired at 65, McLAUGHLIN decided to run for the school board. She ran three times, all successfully.
In 1982, in her third run, she told The Free Press her plan was to "protect my investment in the children."
Her experience as a teacher and a mother paid dividends later, recalled former board education director Ken REGAN.
"She brought all of those perspectives to the board. They were terrific bits of information," he said.
Seldom seen without a hat, McLAUGHLIN's wit was sharp, her manners impeccable and her arguments almost always pointed, said Regan.
"She certainly added some decorum to our deliberations," said trustee John FERRIS, now the board's chairperson.
McLAUGHLIN encouraged parents and teachers to take part in public meetings and have their voices heard in a boardroom where they often felt intimidated.
McLAUGHLIN's presence was also felt at her parish, now Holy Cross, where she was president of the Catholic Woman's League and a key fundraiser. Among her projects was an annual bake sale, begun 30 years ago, to repair public works in South America.
The fundraiser continues to this day and has raised "tens of thousands" of dollars, Patricia McLAUGHLIN said.

COX, Nel (née HILL)
Passed away peacefully at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on Monday, March 3, 2008 after a brief illness. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Herbert H. COX, and is survived by her children Joanne and Brock RONDEAU, Brian and Marsha COX and Bill COX and Georgia GUENTHER; by her grandchildren and (great-grandchildren) Colin and Julie MITCHELL (Cameron,) Kara and Yuri MacHADO (Sierra,) Jason and Janine COX (Stephen and Christopher), Megan and Andrew SHAW (Paige and Taylor,) Ben and Suzanne COX (Ethan and Ella,) and Paul COX. Nel was born in Field, British Columbia, the daughter of George and Mabel HILL, and younger sister of Jo GORANSON. Her active outdoor childhood, among her beautiful mountains, included hiking, riding, skiing, golf, and other sports. On a trip east to Malartic Goldfields to visit her sister, she met and married Herbert H. COX, mine manager. Together they enjoyed life in a small mining community with their three children. Nel always loved children and taught Sunday school and theatre. In 1957 they moved to Lawrence Park, Toronto, and later enjoyed retirement at Muir Park Condos. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary surrounded by family at their favourite Granite Club, where they played bridge, curled, and bowled. Herb died in 1991 but Nel continued to live independently at Muir Park until the last few days of her life. She loved to socialize, but her increasing deafness and, more recently, her failing eyesight, made it difficult for her to communicate. In her nineties she had such wonderful recall, she was able to publish a book of her memoirs. Always proudly independent, as her hearing declined she took a night school course in lip reading and carried on. Nel was the matriarch of her family - a confidant of each of her grandchildren and Great Nana to her eight grandchildren. She always had time to listen and was never short of support for her family's hopes and dreams. The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude for the professional and caring support of Doctor Rob FOWLER and the nursing team at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com.

Ex-Delhi man kills wife, self
39-year-old shoots estranged wife in Florida
By Sun MEDIA, Fri., April 25, 2008
Simcoe -- A former Delhi man shot and killed his wife before taking his own life on the run in a murder-suicide played out in two U.S. states this week.
Chris RONSON, 39, a warehouse manager living in Florida, confronted his wife and a male friend with her in a restaurant near Interstate 75 in Ocala, Florida, Sunday night, police told a local newspaper.
Police described a chilling, stalking sequence of events.
RONSON waited for his estranged wife and her friend, Mike BUBNOW, outside, then walked up to their vehicle as they prepared to leave and shot them through a window.
Afterward, RONSON -- apparently terrified of facing a murder rap in Florida, which has the death penalty -- drove nearly 1,300 kilometres to Texas, where he shot himself in Walker County on Monday.
Along the way, he called family and Friends on his cellphone, told them what he'd done and made it clear he intended to take his own life.
"We said our goodbyes," said Shelby Glazer, a friend and chiropractor in Southfield, Michigan., near Detroit.
"The last thing he said to me was, if there is life after death, he will see me on the other side."
Laura Lynn RONSON, 39, died after being shot three times.
BUBNOW, 32, critically hurt, was shot twice.
RONSON shot and killed himself at a rest stop in Texas as police moved in to arrest him.
A.45-calibre gun found at the scene is being tested to determine if it's the gun used in the Ocala shootings.
RONSON had spoken to his father, Delhi insurance broker Robert RONSON, who tried to convince his son to turn himself in.
But RONSON was determined to get out of Florida.
"There was no changing his mind," Robert RONSON said yesterday. "He was determined to end it. The only thing he said was, 'I killed my wife.' That was it.
"I kept insisting he give up. I told him we'd get him a good lawyer and do the best we could. But he must have known the law in Florida."
Glazer recalled Chris RONSON as an intense man who finally buckled under the weight of a failed marriage.
RONSON and his wife lived in the same apartment complex in Ocala but in different units.
Married for 17 years, they had children 12 and 14.
"It was a classic case of they couldn't live with each other and they couldn't live without each other," Glazer said, adding RONSON had become "more and more angry with his relationship."
"There was a lot of pent-up hurt and anger."
RONSON went to the U.S. in the early 1990s, during a recession in Ontario, to look for work. He met Laura in Michigan and the two married.
