AVRITH, Ernest
Our hearts are broken by the loss of our father, grandfather and husband, Ernest AVRITH who died peacefully, surrounded by his family at home on Tuesday, January 8, 2008. Beloved husband of Marilyn SILVERMAN for 59 years. Loving and devoted father and father-in-law of Gale AVRITH and Nadim WAKEAM, Douglas and Pilar AVRITH, Heather AVRITH and William ROSENBERG. Cherished grandfather of Elliot, Kira and Alex WAKEAM; Natasha AVRITH and Eric TOMAN, Samuel, Nita, Harry and Leticia AVRITH; Arlene and David ROSENBERG. Loving great-grandfather of Alexa and Sean TOMAN.
He is remembered as the President of Yellow Shoes which pioneered the idea of low cost self-serve retail stores. He grew the company from 10 stores to one of the largest shoe chains in Quebec. His brilliance as a stylist and his creative genius at retailing helped Yellow become one of the most successful shoe chains in the country and he was known as a leader in the shoe industry. Yellow was so much a part of Quebec culture that one of the three major characters in the play "Broue", a satirical look at working class life in Quebec, was a Yellow store manager.
In the latter part of his life his major challenge was his health and he met it with the same optimism, courage and spirit that he poured into his business.
He was a major benefactor of the Marilyn and Ernest Avrith Liver Transplant Clinic at the Royal Victoria Hospital and the Beth Jacob Teacher's College, Montreal.
Funeral service from Paperman and Sons, 3888 Jean Talon St. W. on Friday, January 11 at 11: 00 a.m. Burial at Congregation Shaar Hashomayim Cemetery, Mt. Royal Blvd. Shiva at 4350 Sherbrooke St. W. #610, Westmount, Quebec, evening services at 7: 30 p.m. Contributions in his memory may be made to the "Marilyn and Ernest Avrith Liver Transplant Clinic" c/o the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation, (514) 843-1543.

TOMBS, Walter
Dad I can't believe a year has passed since He took you away from your pain. Although you were never sick before until that terrible disease hit you hard and then you were taken away from us within a year. We are so glad we had so much time together in your last few months and right to the very end we were all with you. Although I was so glad you were relieved of you pain, I miss you so much each and every single day and night. We all know when you care about someone, no matter who spends time together, enjoy your life because you never know when the time will come, when you lose the people you love. We all love you so much and never to be forgotten. P.S. The leafs are close to going into the playoffs, yeah! Love Patty and Brian.

MILLER, Lois Mary (née TOMKINS)
(August 29, 1916-July 12, 2008)
Lovingly and tenderly supported by family and caregivers at Toronto Western Hospital, Lois passed away peacefully to her heavenly journey on Saturday July 12th in her 92nd year. She was the treasured sweetheart of the late S. Dickson MILLER and a loving partner of the late Doug STEVENS; cherished mother of Catherine MILLER (Cliff KACHALUBA,) Marnie (John KOWALEWSKI,) Bruce (Ginny,) and Peter (Celeste); devoted Nana to Camille, Andrew, Scott, Stephanie (Paul), James, Kristen (Andre), Alicia (John) and Stephen; great-grandmother to Kaiya.
Lois's life was defined by her love of family, Friends and faith in God. She will be remembered for many things: devoted to her parents, notable Lisgar (Ottawa) graduate, Queen's graduate (Arts '39) and one of Queen's first two female cheerleaders, a loving mother, grandmother and wife, an activist through her volunteer and professional work, and a woman always progressive in her thinking: a woman of grace and quiet strength.
In recent days confronted with failing health she continued to be independent, thoughtful and loving to family and her support team. She maintained her amazing sense of humour and even while facing her final days she possessed the strength and faith to graciously accept God's master plan for her.
Lois's example of living with integrity, wisdom and love continues to inspire and guide us.
As she wished, a private family service has been held and a Memorial Service to celebrate her life will be held Monday August 25th, 1 p.m. at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. West, Toronto (2 lights west of Yonge St.). Her family will be present to welcome you during the hour before the service and the reception following.
In lieu of flowers in Lois's memory you may consider contributions to a charity of your choice or to one of her favorites: Big Sisters of Ontario, Richmond Hill or Forest Hill United Church, Queens University or Young Women's Christian Association National Office.

MacARTHUR, Dorothy Frances (née TOMLINSON) "Tootie"
Peacefully on Saturday, June 14th, 2008. Loving and devoted wife, for 61 years, of the late Cam. Wonderful mother to Judy (Fergus), Cam (Leah), Heather and Jamie (Terry). Doting grandmother to 12 and great-grandmother to 10. Born in Toronto, she grew up in Winnipeg. She and Cam settled in Oakville following World War 2 and raised their children on Dundas Street (now Trafalgar) until moving to "the farm" north of Oakville in 1961. She loved her family. Each Sunday she hosted large family dinners, serving heaping portions of brisket and tomato aspic. Known for being a great conversationalist, these occasions were true family events at which she held court with everyone from toddlers to seniors. With her sense of humour and quick wit she would often have a crowd of people in stitches. With Cam, her soul mate, she regularly attended extended family reunions and events across Canada and the United States. When she wasn't at her family's sports, scholastic or other events, she was enjoying summers at the cottage on Georgian Bay -- always catching the biggest fish! Warm winters were spent in Tortola, British Virgin Islands with visits from family members and Friends. To Tortolans, she and Cam were family and the feeling was mutual. Survived by her sister Jean of Toronto. Predeceased by her brothers Joe of Nassau and Bill of Thunder Bay. Beloved aunt of many nieces and nephews. Resilient in all facets of her life, she faced recent health challenges head-on with an upbeat attitude. Each moment was lived to the fullest. No doubt, she's already ordered a hot dog and beer to enjoy with her beloved Cam. A heartfelt thank you from the family to Brenda OOSTEN, whose loving care and compassion over the last five years granted mom her wish to remain at home, at "the farm." Visitation will be held at the Kopriva Taylor Community Funeral Home, 64 Lakeshore Road West, Oakville (one block east of Kerr, 905-844-2600), Friday evening from 6-9 p.m. A Service to celebrate Dorothy's life will be held on Saturday, June 21, 2008 at Saint_Jude's Anglican Church, 160 William Street, Oakville at 1: 00 p.m. If desired, memorial contributions to the Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family. Email condolences may be made through www.koprivataylor.com.
