SCUDELLARI, Beryl (KELLY)
Career woman, role model, pilot, ham radio operator, wife. Born January 2, 1924, in Kingston, Ontario Died September 11, 2007, in Toronto of complications from Alzheimer's disease, aged 83.
By Diane KELLY and Joan CHAMP and Susan KELLY, Page L6
We three bridesmaids remember a glorious day on October 7, 1961, when our much-loved and admired aunt Beryl KELLY married Norm SCUDELLARI.
Beryl graduated from Queen's University in 1945. She left her hometown of Kingston, moved to the "big city" of Toronto and joined Eaton's as a retail sales clerk.
She later recalled, "As a woman you might have to work a little harder than the guy next to you, but you could definitely move up." And move up she did, from store buyer to national buyer of women's clothing to national jewellery buyer.
Beryl travelled to New York, Montreal, London, Paris and Rome in search of the best lines for young Canadian women. She was successful in landing exclusive contracts with some of the biggest designers of the time, but, as she said, it was tricky: "If you made a boo-boo, it was bye-bye." Her sense of fair play and business acumen were widely regarded.
Beryl had worked at Eaton's a short time when she was granted a leave of absence to volunteer in Mexico. She learned Spanish and developed a love of travel that remained with her for life. She had a great sense of adventure, wasn't afraid to take risks and always absorbed the culture in which she was immersed.
Beryl had an independent spirit. She bought waterfront land and built a little house, commuting from the shores of Frenchman's Bay in Pickering, Ontario, to downtown Toronto. As she said, "You can't have been raised in Kingston and not love the rocks and the water."
She balanced a successful career with equal time for Friends and family in Kingston. She met her future husband, Norm, the Eaton's photographer at the time, at a company party where he courted her to the music of Frank Sinatra. Together they travelled the world, snowmobiled, were ham radio operators and learned to fly.
Beryl became an excellent pilot, receiving her instrument rating. She and Norm took many trips in their Mooney, from Nunavut to Los Angeles. Beryl was a founding and active member of the first Canadian chapter of the Ninety-Nines, an international organization of women pilots.
A classic suit and gold hoop earrings were her trademarks. She personified sporty elegance behind the wheel of Big Red, her X K E convertible.
And she was, for us, a favourite aunt, a mentor and a role model who was full of fun, who always had something positive and supportive to say and who never lost her sense of humour in the last weeks of her life.
Diane KELLY, Joan CHAMP and Susan KELLY are Beryl's nieces.

CABAK, Frank John
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Frank John CABAK in his 87th year. He died peacefully, with his family by his side at Parkwood Hospital, Complex Care on Friday, March 28, 2008. Frank has gone to join his beloved wife of sixty years, Blanche VAN PRAET (2004.) Leaving to mourn are his cherished son, Donald and his wife Nancy RAYE. Loving brother of Ed and Jeanette SALTARSKI and Joseph SALTARSKI (Gladys) all of London, Ontario. Predeceased by his sister, Stella KOWALESKI and brothers Albert (Helen) and John (Helen) CABAK. Frank will be sadly missed by his brother-in-law Camiel VAN PRAET and his wife Mariea of Sarasota, Florida, and his sister-in-law Frankaileen SCULLY of Wallaceburg, Ontario. Step grandfather of Lisa DUBE (Matthew) and Curtis MORRIS, and step great-grandfather of five. Frank leaves many happy and fond memories with his many nieces and nephews. Our family would like to extend sincere thanks to the many caregivers and Friends who performed many acts of kindness for our father during the last few years. And so, Dad's chapter in the book of life has come to an end. His was a life well lived, full of hard work, hard play and many many sports. His wisdom, counsel, and balance will be sadly missed by all who touched his life. As is the case of a child and his father it is impossible to remember a time when he was not there and that will make his absence even more pronounced. He advised, supported, provided for and yes on occasion corrected me. His commitment to his family was total, unreserved and it never wavered. Friends and family will be received at John T. Donohue Funeral Home, on Sunday evening from 6-9 o'clock. Funeral Mass will be held at Saint Martin of Tours Church, 46 Cathcart Street at Duchess, on Monday afternoon at 1 o'clock. Interment in Saint Peter's Cemetery. Prayers Sunday evening at 6 o'clock. As an expression of sympathy, donations to the ALS Society, the Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
