Sadly missed along life's way
Quietly remembered every day.

But in our hearts, Mom
You are always there.

TRUDEAU--In loving memory of our dear brother Archie who made his
transition on November 10, 2007.
My First Christmas in Heaven
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year
But the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
For its beyond description to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart.
But I am not so far away, we really aren't apart.
So be happy for me, dear ones, you know I hold you dear,
And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold,
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do.
For I can't count the blessings or love he has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear,
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
Lovingly remembered by sisters Ida Embry, Josephine Eshkibok, and Christine Belonga.

HOWARD, Frank
On February 26th, 2008, in Guadalajara, Mexico, from the effects of lung cancer. Frank, 77, was loved, and will be fondly remembered, by his wife Geraldine CASTLE- TRUDEL and her children Jennifer (widow of Brigadier-General Marc POULIOT, mother of Jessica and Nicole,) Nicholas (husband of Jennifer-Anne McNEILL, father of Noah,) Victoria NOURY (mother of David and Erik) and Mellissa (wife of Ian HOLMES, mother of Oliver.) Also bereaved are his daughters Virginia HOWARD, Susan (wife of Robin LYNCH, mother of Jessica and Alison,) Lisa (wife of Andrew FOGARASIS, mother of Peter and Alice,) Jennifer HOWARD (married to Mary SCOTT,) and their mother Patricia, as well as many other relatives and numerous Friends. When Frank retired from journalism on February 18, 1994, he was writing the Bureaucrats column in the Ottawa Citizen. As a tribute, John Gray reminisced about Frank as a journalist and friend for The Bureaucrats: Souvenir Edition. What John wrote is as affectionately appropriate today as it was then: "Many, many years ago when he was Canada's youngest city editor on Canada's oldest daily newspaper, Frank HOWARD taught me the rudiments of journalism. For this I am grateful: it has kept me off the streets in the intervening 30 odd years. Since then, however, the HOWARD scorecard is a bit smudged. Early on, he set out to save the country. He busied himself with the affairs of Quebec and talked endlessly to those who would listen about the mystic union of French and English Canada. He wanted to be, he said, un interlocuteur valable. The rest is history - the immediate birth of the Quebec separatist movement and the country's long decline into the national toilet. So much for the joys of mysticism. He was not much better outside Quebec. He travelled to Toronto to be the best man at our wedding. This was much appreciated, except that he insisted on playing the rustic, throwing himself downstairs in full view of 50 people. Two days later, at what was supposed to be a wedding party, he lectured another 50 people for 4½ hours on the evils of contraception. A lot of people still believe that I am a hideous judge of character. In the mid-1960s he persuaded me that the Montreal Star was a wonderful place to work. He left within a few weeks. And a few years later, of course, the Montreal Star died. Through long and patient effort, Frank was crucial in furthering a lifelong commitment of myself and many others to beer and related pleasures. Later he renounced the devil and all his works and he now looks upon the rest of us with sad eyes and infinite pity and superiority. My own suspicion is that this exalted moral plane from which he now views the world is his own revenge for a lifetime of short jokes. Those who know him will recognize in all this a desperate ring of truth. However, I will say this for Frank. Over the years he has resisted the temptation to teach me everything he knows about snooker. Of such forbearance is great Friendship made."
In accordance with his wishes he has been cremated, and so "Adieu kind friend, adieu…."

WHITE/WHYTE, Patric Jon " Ric Chip"
I would like to take this time to say "Thank You". But a simple "Thank You" doesn't come close to expressing the gratitude I feel for all the support that I have received from family and Friends. It's in difficult times like these that we realize just how many Friends we have, and how much they really mean to us. Throughout his life, Ric has touched so many people with, his genuine smile, his laugh, his jokes, his stories, his generosity, and quick impulse to help anyone or any cause that came along. One of Ric's most important accomplishments in life was the many Friends he acquired along the way. The respect and final farewell that all of you gave him will never be forgotten. Just as I'm certain that Ric will never be forgotten, because there will always be a part of him in all our hearts. I would like to extend a special thank you to- Dennis and Sheila JOYCE, Renaye and Bernice MYERS, Joe SANTOS, Wayne HAUSER and Karen CURRAH, Gary BROOKS, Ted and Kathy JOHNSTON, Wayne HENDERSON, Pete and Gloria PALMER, Tracy TRUDELL, Kathy CRAWFORD, Christine McAULEY, Reverend J. WHITE/WHYTE, Bill DENNING, Saint Mary's Church, West Elgin Legion and everyone who brought food, sent flowers, sent cards and emails and telephoned. A very special thank you to Hostess Frito Lay and the person(s) who arranged for the "Chip Truck" to be at the church on the day of the funeral. It was a befitting tribute and goodbye to Ric "Chip", who took great pride in his job and who had fond attachments to everyone associated with it. From Branika Savic and the family of Ric "Chip" Whyte.

BRYCE, Jocelyne (née TRUDELLE)
Suddenly, but peacefully at her home on February 20th. Daughter of the late Ajutor and Marie-Berthe TRUDELLE and beloved sister of the late Micheline TRUDELLE and the love of her husband David's life.
Ambitious throughout her life, Jocelyne was working full time at an accounting firm at 16 while pursuing a commerce degree from Laval University. She and her sister embarked on a new life and challenge by moving to Toronto in their 20's where Jocelyne showed her prowess and talent first at a major bank and then for many years with the Toronto office of Revenue Quebec. Jocelyne was unique in so many respects, including her ability to completely entertain a group, strangers or not, with her non-stop exuberant humour - and in either language. Her taste in décor, style and fashion was impeccable. And she was kind and thoughtful to all and will be surely missed by all who had the good fortune to know her.
A memorial mass will be held on Monday February 25, 2008 at St. Monica's Catholic Church (44 Broadway Ave., east of Yonge St.) at 2 p.m. If desired, donations may be made to your favourite charity.

Maggy REEVES, 85: Couturier
Austrian-born designer clothed Canada's rich and famous
By Iris NOWELL, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
Toronto -- As a child, fashion designer Maggy REEVES became acquainted with immense wealth and one of its conspicuous spinoffs - beautifully dressed women. It changed her life so that years later she would attain the pinnacle of fashion excellence in Canada.
Born into uncertain times in Austria in 1924, she was christened Margarethe WEISZ. As a nine-year-old growing up in Austria she sensed only faint stirrings of the unrest around her. In 1937, she gained an abrupt understanding when her Jewish father, Robert WEISZ, fled the Nazis and escaped abroad, leaving behind his Catholic wife and daughters Margarethe and Trude.
During the Second World War, the threesome moved to the countryside where they were spared the worst of the conflict. In 1947, Margarethe married Willibald NAGENZAUM, a bookkeeper she had known from her school days. The marriage lasted only two years and she, with son Frederick, left Vienna to join her father in the Dominican Republic. There, she discovered he had bigamously married a niece of Rafael TRUJILLO, the country's infamous dictator. Margarethe and her son moved in with her father and his wife and, in doing so, rubbed shoulders with the elite of society. The women, she discovered, were stunningly dressed.
"I was so jealous," she said years later. "I showed off by making the wildest clothes." This achieved the desired effect: "People looked at me."
By 1949, however, she had grown unhappy living with her father's new wife and ran off and married James COURTNEY, a well-to-do Texan. This proved to be a mistake. After two tumultuous years in Dallas, they divorced and she moved to New York where she became an apprentice pattern maker.
In 1953, she moved to Montreal where she broadened her experience as a junior designer. Two years later, she settled in Toronto. There she got a foothold in couture by custom designing high-fashion clothes. By then known as Maggy, she set up a business in her home on Bayview Avenue in Toronto's Moore Park neighbourhood and hired three women as seamstresses. In her window she hung a sign: "L'elegance - Paris, Toronto, Haute Couture."
"Maggy organized little fashion shows in the living room," said her friend Edith BILEK, a fellow Austrian who served clients tea and sandwiches. "That's how Maggy began."
The business developed quickly but lacked capital to expand. A client named Reva JOSEPH, whose husband was a prosperous car dealer, offered the necessary backing. The new business was named Maggy Reeves, which is derived from their first names - Maggy and Reva. In 1957, the Maggy Reeves salon opened on Cumberland Street in Toronto. Over time, Maggy adopted it as her own name.
The business flourished and in 1962 she married Otto SOMLAI, a Hungarian who had fled the 1956 revolution. At first, he worked in a furniture factory but later quit to work alongside his wife.
By that time her salon enjoyed a staff of European-trained women who painstakingly produced the handwork that was the Maggy Reeves imprimatur -- beading, quilting, hand painting and embroidery. Working with fine silk chiffon, for example, a design might comprise six or eight hem lengths, each hand-rolled and stitched so fine the stitches were scarcely visible. Such filmy chiffon and tiny stitches allowed a dress to "float" as the wearer walked. It was a distinct mark of couture.
Ms. REEVES's workers spent hundreds of hours on handwork she could never afford to charge. Prices of her ball gowns averaged $2,000 to $3,000, which in Paris or New York would be 10 times higher. Her costliest design was $10,000.
Interestingly, the customer was not always right. If Ms. REEVES felt an outfit would not be flattering, she refused to make it and instead devised a glamorous alternative. She steered women away from tight-fitting clothes they thought were sexy. "If you wear something too tight that shows your bumps," she once told a reporter, "you will look like a snake that has swallowed eggs."
In October of 1964, an afternoon tea and fashion show at the Park Plaza Hotel put her salon on the map. Organized by her friend and public-relations whiz, the late Catherine SMYTH, the event was intended to expose Toronto women to haute couture suits, coats and ball gowns that were the equal of Paris, Rome and New York.
"Everybody went ga-ga," recalls Anne CASEY, a client who modelled in the show. "People wanted to buy the clothes right off your back."
Clientele grew quickly and Ms. REEVES often had difficulty obtaining high-quality fabrics in Canada. Twice a year, she travelled to textile mills in France, Italy and Austria in search of the best materials. Frequently, she went to New York for the luxurious ribbons, piping, vintage beads and Swarovski crystal buttons that gave her designs their characteristic touch.
In 1977, a star-studded charity fashion show in Los Angeles earned recognition in the U.S. The show, in support of the Loretta Young Auxiliary of Saint Anne's Maternity Hospital and Home for Unwed Mothers, was organized by Toronto broadcast journalist Edie FRANKEL. The clothes were modelled by the wives of actors and the event attracted celebrities and young starlets.
However, it also produced a big problem.
"Maggy took one look at the models and said, 'I told you, no breasts!' Ms. FRANKEL recalled. All along, Ms. REEVES had been concerned that naturally busty women and breast-implanted women would not fit her fashions. Fortunately, she had brought along a sewing machine, and her assistant Franca RANIERE immediately made alterations.
Ms. REEVES continued as a leader in Canadian haut couture for some years after that but demand diminished in the 1990s as fashion changed to ultra casual wear. Nonetheless, with one part-time worker she continued to make couture in her Toronto apartment for a few loyal clients.
Maggy REEVES was born Margarethe Katharina WEISZ in Vienna, Austria, on October 11, 1924. She died April 9, 2008, in Toronto of heart failure. She was 85. She is survived by her sister, Trude, and her son Fred Courtney. She was predeceased by her husband, Otto, in 1991.

RORKE, Gwendolyn (née WANNAMAKER)
Gwendolyn RORKE Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, breast cancer survivor. Born October 12, 1908, near Ameliasburg, Ontario Died November 17, 2007, in Souris, Prince Edward Island, of old age, aged 99.
By Derek NEWTON, Page L10
Gwendolyn WANNAMAKER began her life on a small farm, the only surviving child of Zella TRUMPOUR and Walter WANNAMAKER.
An intelligent and determined woman, Gwen believed in the importance of education, deportment and etiquette. She was one of few women in Canada to earn a university degree in mathematics during the 1930s.
Gwen was an enthusiastic alumna of Queen's University in Kingston. She returned many times, most recently to celebrate her reunion 70 years after graduating. True to her guidance, all of Gwen's three children and eight grandchildren completed postsecondary education. Much to her delight, some of them went to Queen's.
Gwen married Colin RORKE, a fellow Queen's alumnus and mechanical engineer, and they eventually settled in Toronto with their children. In the 1950s, the RORKEs purchased a property in the Kawarthas, northeast of Toronto, beginning the labour of love of building a cottage. Always resourceful, Gwen fashioned curtains out of old soap bags from Lever Brothers Ltd., where Colin worked.
One of Gwen's proudest accomplishments was her term as president of the Canadian Home and School Federation in the 1960s.
A true lady, Gwen was always dignified, her outfits adorned with an elegant brooch or scarf. Kind actions were always promptly acknowledged with a thank you note, and there would be no stacking of dirty plates or resting of elbows at her table. But she wasn't one to take herself too seriously.
Gwen played a significant role in her grandchildren's lives and education, providing tireless homework assistance and even tutorials in cribbage and bridge. She braved numerous recitals, performances and commencement ceremonies.
Generous in spirit, Gwen knitted hundreds of teddy bears for a local women's shelter. Well into her 80s, she maintained her sharp mind, organizing indoor lawn bowling tournaments and playing bridge twice a week. She battled breast cancer and came through it with her spirit intact. Sadly, by her mid-90s, her intellect was lost to Alzheimer's disease. She outlived two of her three children, Harvey and Beverley, and spent her last few years in her daughter Sally's care in Prince Edward Island.
Gwen always enjoyed giving guided tours of Ontario's Prince Edward County to any willing grandchild. On the drive back from one such trip, we pulled off the road to admire the sunset at the end of a day of memories, history and a lesson on our family's roots. It is this picture of Gwen, strong and proud, that I will fondly remember.
Derek NEWTON is Gwendolyn's grand_son.

Steven TRUSCOTT's 'poor Mom' spent decades fighting on his behalf
The matriarch of a military family endured divorce and disappointment before seeing justice done
By Lisa FITTERMAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Doris Truscott BRENNAN would tell her children that when they were older, they'd look back on their youth and want to live it all over again. Childhood, she was wont to say, is the most precious and beautiful time of life.
"Poor Mom," her most famous son, Steven TRUSCOTT, once said to journalist Bill Trent. "How could she know that the soft, golden days of my childhood would one day come to an abrupt, tragic end and that she would be visiting me in a jail?"
Back in 1950s, Mrs. BRENNAN was known as Dot TRUSCOTT, a traditional air force wife and mother of four who spent her time cooking, cleaning, doing endless loads of laundry and ensuring that her boisterous offspring minded their manners. From the family's small clapboard house in Clinton, Ontario, she was the boss who tolerated no insubordination. Petite and plainspoken, it was her way to strike a balance between strictness and love.
In June, 1959, Mrs. BRENNAN was doing what she did every year: making plans for summer vacation and occasionally socializing with her husband, Dan, in the sergeants' mess. On June 10, everything began to unravel. That's when Leslie HARPER, the father of 12-year-old Lynne, showed up on the doorstep, saying he'd been told that one of the Truscott boys had seen her. She hadn't come home the night before. The family was frantic. Steven told him that he'd given her a lift on his bike to the corner and that she'd hitched a ride on the highway.
When Lynne's body was found in the nearby bush, investigators focused on the 14-year-old who seemed to have been the last person to see her alive. It was ridiculous, Mrs. BRENNAN knew. Her tall, handsome and shy second son, who excelled at track and field and liked to fish in his spare time, couldn't have committed the grisly crime he was accused of. How could the authorities, whom she'd always respected, pin this horror on him?
She would learn to fight back, grimly and with a singular sense of purpose. She fought through his arraignment and his trial, sitting behind him and whispering words of encouragement and testifying that with four active kids, she had to do laundry more than once a week and that a dirty pair of jeans was not exceptional.
She fought against the shocking sentence to hang by his neck until he was dead (later commuted to life in prison), and she fought all the way up to the Supreme Court of Canada to have the conviction overturned. She fought without help from the air force, even as her family moved from Clinton into a secondhand trailer in a park near the small-town Ontario jail where her son was first held. And throughout, she fought to keep her family together and to shield her other children from the trauma.
"She instilled in Steven the air force way: Keep your emotions in check, stand firm in the face of adversity and never back down," said investigative journalist Julian Sher, who chronicled the family's struggle in the book Until You Are Dead. "She was efficient, she was dedicated, she was a whirlwind and she was to be reckoned with."
Mrs. BRENNAN once told Mr. Sher that she had to draw on all of her military grit to survive. "I think being a serviceperson, you learn to accept things more and make do with what you have," she recalled. "Your world has turned completely around, but you push it to the back of your mind and you look ahead. Nothing more could happen that could be worse, so it's got to get better."
But it wouldn't get better, not for a long time.
Born Doris BOWERS, Mrs. BRENNAN was an air force child herself. Her father was an engineer and worked at one point on an air-sea rescue boat. Dan TRUSCOTT, whom she met in 1942, worked on that boat, too; he first came by the BOWERS home as a family friend but soon dropped all pretence as the relationship with Doris heated up. The couple married and had four children.
Along the way, they were stationed for various periods on bases near Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Quebec City and Rivers, Manitoba, where they lived in a shack with an outdoor toilet. It wasn't an easy life, but Mrs. BRENNAN had been ready all her life to take on the challenges of raising a family within the confines of the military. New schools and new Friends were par for the course.
Her son's arrest and what followed turned everything she knew on its head. After the trial, she worked at three part-time jobs, in a bakery, a grocery store and a cafeteria, to help keep the family afloat and to pay for gas for the monthly car trips to and from Collins Bay Penitentiary near Kingston, where Steven would serve the bulk of his sentence.
Mac STIENBURG, the Collins Bay chaplain who became a surrogate father to Mr. TRUSCOTT in prison and with whom the young man first lived when he was paroled, said the parents never let him see how scared and frustrated they were.
"They would spend time in the chapel and they'd pass on family tidbits, keeping him up to date," Mr. STIENBURG said. "They had very natural, newsy conversations. They never got into that 'poor you' or 'poor me' mindset."
The chaplain, now retired, said his most poignant memory of the mother and son was her visit in May, 1967, after they'd lost a Supreme Court bid to have the verdict overturned. After placing their faith in the ability of the judges to recognize the case as a circumstantial fiction, she was devastated, but Mr. STIENBURG said that didn't stop her driving out to the prison to speak to Mr. TRUSCOTT face to face.
"It was after-hours and because of the way it was happening, I was granted permission to monitor the visit," he recalled. "She did the exact right thing. She said, 'This isn't the end of it. We'll go on and see what we can do.' She was so strong and determined, sitting there in this cold visiting room, and I think Steve drew strength from her."
Indeed, Mrs. BRENNAN grasped at any chance to clear her son's name. When Isabel LeBourdais, a Toronto journalist, first wrote to the Truscotts to express her interest in writing a magazine exposé about why a 14-year-old would be tried as an adult and given the death penalty, the two women began to forge a Friendship made stronger by the fact that Ms. LeBourdais had a son only a little older than Mr. TRUSCOTT.
Ms. LeBourdais eventually decided that the story was one of wrongful conviction and too big to tell within the limited scope of a magazine. Instead, she wrote The Trial of Steven Truscott, a book she dedicated to Mrs. BRENNAN "with affection and profound respect."
"It really summed up their relationship," said the author's son, Julien LeBourdais. "They were two mothers with sons close in age and one of the things we always say to people is, 'I know how you feel.' But we don't really know. We can't know. You can only feel awe."
No matter how strong Mrs. BRENNAN was, the ordeal did take its toll. At one point, she took tranquilizers to get through the long days and even longer nights, while Mr. STIENBURG said she was disappointed by administrative decisions that her son must live under an assumed name when he was paroled and that he must live with the chaplain instead of coming home.
Her marriage to Dan TRUSCOTT unravelled while their son was in prison, a casualty of the pressure. Although she married again, the union didn't last and she spent her latter years living outside Ottawa near three of her children.
In an e-mail sent to supporters, Mr. TRUSCOTT's wife, Marlene, wrote that Mrs. BRENNAN was an inspiration to them all. Although the family declined to make any further comment, it seems clear she will be remembered as the fierce, stalwart mother who refused to give up on her son - the mother who, last summer, finally saw justice done when the Ontario Court of Appeal quashed the conviction, calling it a "miscarriage of justice."
She lived long enough to see it and for that, she was happy.
Doris (Dot) BRENNAN died at the Ottawa Heart Institute on December 17, 2007. She was 82. She is survived by children Ken (Lenora), Steven (Marlene), Bill (Carol) and Barb, and grandchildren David, Dwayne, Ryan, Leslie, Devon, Crystal and Tom.
