TRIMBLE, William Burbage Smyth
Educator, died at Sunrise of Aurora on Monday, June 2nd 2008. Born in California, he grew up in Toronto, obtaining his education at the University of Toronto, from which he held four degrees. His education was interrupted by five years of service with the R.C.N.V.R., most of which was spent on loan to the Royal Navy. He served first in Combined Operations and was on the carrier ship M.V. Ettrick when it was torpedoed on its return from the North African landings. He went back to sea as a Fighter Direction Officer, attached to the first squadron of night fighters ever to operate from an aircraft carrier. He was awarded a Mention in Despatches on one of several Murmansk convoys. He was discharged in 1945 as a Lieutenant-Commander. Back in civilian life, he saw himself first and foremost as a teacher. Along with any administrative duties, he always insisted on remaining part time in the classroom. He served as Vice- President of Ryerson, professor of education at the University of Toronto, Vice-President of Humber College and first Chairman of The Board of George Brown College. He and his wife (Dorothy ROBERTSON) spent three years in Lesotho, Africa in the 1970s where he helped to implement a World Bank education project and Dorothy was Field Supervisor for Oxfam and Save the Children Fund. Bill had a gift for writing. His family treasure his letters and stories, but many students will remember his texts, Understanding the Canadian Economy and Basic Economics for Lesotho. While accomplished in his profession, Bill's devotion to family was a priority. A man ahead of his times, he was a sensitive and caring husband and father, actively engaged in the raising of his children. He leaves his wife of sixty-three years, daughters Catherine WOLFE, Virginia WALSH (Michael WALSH) and Margaret NORRIE, son Alan TRIMBLE (Andrea ROTH,) grandchildren Martin WOLFE (Karen HISLOP), Heather WOLFE (Dean RIMANDO), Thomas WALSH, Alan WALSH, Mira TRIMBLE, Rebecca ALTON (Eric ALTON) and Hannah NORRIE, step-grandchildren Joshua McKAY and Oliver McKAY and great-grand_sons Henry and Alexander WOLFE. Bill and his family very much appreciated the compassion and support of Sunrise and Community Care Access Centre caregivers who enabled Dorothy and Bill to remain together during his last years. A memorial service in celebration of Bill's life will be held at Friends (Quaker) Meeting House, 17030 Yonge Street, west side of Yonge Street just south of Eagle Street and North of Mulock Drive, Newmarket, on Saturday, June 21st, 2008 at 10: 30 a.m. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Thompson Funeral Home, 905-727-5421.

MARSHALL, Anne Louise
Anne, (68) died peacefully at home in Oakville on Friday, July 18, 2008 from cancer (mesothelioma). She was born in Nipigon, Ontario, the eldest of four children, and is survived by husband David, her sisters Jessie and Ruth, her children Karen and Jason and grandchildren, Kaitlin and Gavin. Anne will be greatly missed by a wide circle of devoted Friends, who loved her for her kindness, thoughtfulness, and a readiness to extend a helping hand to those in need, and we are all better for having known her. Anne retired from Ontario Hydro in 1990 and worked most recently with Acclaim Health (formerly Victorian Order of Nurses) in their Seniors Day Program at Sheridan College, where she had a wonderful empathy for the clients, caregivers and co-workers. She was an avid golfer at Wyldewood Golf Club, and a regular exerciser at Glen Abbey Recreation Centre. Anne donated her body to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College for teaching and research. Our grateful thanks go to Doctor KHAN, the staff of Community Care Access Centre, Acclaim Health, Community Rehab, Comcare, Doctor ROTHER and staff at the Credit Valley Hospital Oncology Centre, and many others who helped us in our time of need.

HANRAHAN, Doctor Gorman Edward, B.A., B. Sc. (Hon. Chem.) M.D., C.M., PhD
To say that a huge presence has left our lives is to understate the personality and life force of our father and grandfather.
Curious and intelligent with a great sense of humour, Gorman had a love for life that stayed with him till he passed away on March 19th, 2008. After battling pneumonia, his heart simply gave out.
Born in Montreal in 1925, to Marion (née GORMAN) and Edward J. HANRAHAN, Gorman inherited their musical talents, playing both guitar and piano competitively. He attended D'Arcy McGee, Loyola College and McGill, where he graduated in 1951 with an M.D. and a degree in Psychiatry in 1956.
Extremely proud of Gorman's many achievements, the family wants to ensure that Gorman is acknowledged for his work as a psychiatric pioneer in the 1950's. He was one of the first doctors in North America to test, study and describe the action of key anti-psychotic drugs in treating mental illness at the time - notably manic depression and schizophrenia.
Gorman took great pride and satisfaction in this research and firmly believed that these drugs prevented many from having to undergo lobotomies and electric shock treatments of that era and to leave bleak asylums and institutions and in many cases go onto lead normal, progressive lives. (See Pills For the Mind, Time Magazine, March 7th, 1955.)
Gorman was predeceased by his wife of 50 years, Doctor Edythe HANRAHAN, his parents and his sister Patricia LATENDRESSE. He will be greatly missed by his children Patricia (P.K.,) Marnie and Kerry HANRAHAN, their partners, Eric ROTHSCHILD, Dwight GREEN and Terry SHAY/SHEA and his grandchildren Max and Kate ROTHSCHILD. We know that Dan LATENDRESSE, Lori SHEEHAN and Amy FITZPATRICK, his nieces and nephew in the U.S. A his cousin Stanley COATES in Texas, the Santo family in Saskatchewan, and Friends and patients in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa will also greatly mourn his passing.
In keeping with his wishes, no service is planned following a cremation. A memorial celebration will be held in Ottawa on March 29th.
Condolences can be sent to the family via patricia@rothschildco.com Cole Funeral Services, Ottawa.

MUGRIDGE, Thomas " Tom" Patrick
(July 22, 1941-May 4, 2008)
Tom died peacefully at home in the arms of his wife and best friend, his eyes taking in the view of his beloved Rocky Mountains, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was 66 years old. Tom was our husband, father, grampa, brother, mentor and friend. Born in Red Deer, Alberta, he attended a one-room prairie schoolhouse in Condor, Alberta. before joining the Canadian Army Militia at the age of 15. Tom had a 25-year career in the Canadian Military, serving in Gagetown, Borden, Bermuda, Chilliwack, Shilo (Brandon), Kingston and Hamilton. He rose quickly through the ranks from apprentice electrician to Master Warrant Officer. While stationed in Chilliwack, he earned his private pilot license with multi-engine and night ratings. Tom retired from the armed forces in 1985 and attended the University of New Brunswick, graduating with a Bachelor of Education degree. Later he worked as a senior inspector for Industry Canada, Weights and Measures. In all, Tom gave 43 years of loyal service to the Government and people of Canada, for which upon his retirement from the Public Service in January, 2007 he was recognized by Prime Minister Stephen Harper. However, his most prized achievement was the Peer Recognition Award he received from his colleagues at Measurement Canada in 2002. Tom's outstanding trait was his unique mixture of strength, gentleness and his deep compassion for the human condition. He was a man of great integrity, patience, wry humour and kindness. Even in his final days, when he knew his time was close, his main concern was for the welfare of his family.
Besides his loving wife of 33 years, Samantha-jane, Tom is survived by sons Jeff and Garry (Lynne); grandchildren Eric, Sarah, Stacey, Laura and Brian; brothers Dan (Frances,) Dick (Theresa LALONDE) and Jerry (Susan;) brother-in-law Robert SHIRLEY (Eva RODIER) nieces Kelly RANCE, Bonita FANZEGA and Samantha (Doug) ROTHWELL nephews Paul and Stephen MUGRIDGE and William MUGRIDGE; mother-in-law Nettie SHIRLEY and devoted canine friend "Chelsea."

ROTTER, Julek " Julian"
(February 12, 1912-July 8, 2008)
Born in Lvov, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Julian ROTTER lived through two world wars. His formal education came to an end early, as he left school at about 12 years of age to help support his impoverished family. He became involved in radical politics as a young teenager, and throughout his life remained committed to the struggle for social justice. When the second world war broke out in September 1939, Julian enlisted in the Polish Cavalry in their brief, ill-fated struggle against Hitler. Later that year, while working to organize a factory union, he met and fell in love with the late Natalie Strawczynski ROTTER, who had fled Nazi-occupied Poland in autumn 1939. They married in Lvov on December 10, 1940, the day that the Soviets declared war on Hitler. Julian then joined up with the Red Army to fight the Nazis. At the end of World War 2, Julian returned to Lvov, but was devastated to find that he was the only survivor in his entire immediate and extended family. He immigrated to Montreal with his wife Natalie, and baby Frederika, to join Natalie's late brothers (Zygmunt and Oscar STRAWCZYNSKI) and their families. His younger daughter Pearl ("Pep") was born in Montreal. Julian will be remembered as a hard-working, devoted, loving husband, father, uncle and friend who fought intensely for all he believed in, worked tirelessly to provide for his family, and refused to accept defeat whenever he saw any injustice. He was shattered by the death of his beloved wife of sixty years in 2001. He is survived by their two daughters; Frederika and her husband, Philip BERGER; and Pearl and her husband, Evan SPLETT; three adoring grandchildren, Pia and Joey BERGER and Esther SPLETT; and numerous loving nieces, nephews, great nieces and great-nephews. The funeral service will be held at Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Avenue West (3 lights west of Dufferin), on Thursday July 10, 2008 at 10: 00 a.m. Shiva at 106 Riverdale Avenue.
