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.

BOWLER, Marilyn Carscallen (née CRANG)
Died Monday, March 10, 2008, surrounded by her family, at home on Hilton head Island, South Carolina.
Born June 5, 1926 in Toronto, Canada to Maude Miriam Shepley CARSCALLEN and James Goulding CRANG, sister to the late James Carscallen CRANG.
She graduated from Victoria College at the University of Toronto in 1950 and on June 16, 1950 married Joseph BOWLER Jr.
Early in their married life, Marilyn, an avid outdoors woman, devoted much of her time to conservation and environmental issues. She was President of the Federated Conservationists of Westchester County, working to save land from over-development and for use as open space of for the public.
After moving to Hilton head Island in 1972 from Briarcliff Manor, New York, Marilyn became intricately involved in Joe's portrait business and took on the role as his sole representative… partners in work, life and love.
Acutely aware of the importance of art in education she helped establish an Artist in Residence program at Sea Pines Academy. She was very involved in the Island School Council for the Arts and worked for more than 25 years to help the "Evening of the Arts"… always sharing of her time and knowledge, and always willing to learn something new.
"At 81 years of age, I feel that I have experienced a wonderful, long life, better than 99.99% of those who have walked this earth. I have had a fabulous life, which, of course, has included some serious heart-break. I am deeply grateful to the family I had growing up and my wonderful family and Friends now. I plan to continue living as I have, working with Joe and keeping the household running with wonderful help, and sharing time with those I care so much about." She did just that.
Survived by her husband of 57 years, Joseph BOWLER Jr., two daughters Jolyn Louise BOWLER and Bevan Brynne BOWLER, one grand_son Coby James WAKEFIELD and preceded in death by her grand_son Joseph Bowler WAKEFIELD.
In recognition of Marilyn, donations may be made to the Tidewater Hospice Foundation, Bluffton, South Carolina.
A private gathering of Friends and loved ones is being planned for a later time.
