JANNAWAY, Jean Elizabeth "Betty" (ne SHEPHERD)
(August 31, 1919 to March 20, 2005)
Betty passed away peacefully at Oak Bay Lodge in Victoria after many months of declining health. She was predeceased by her husband Donald Renwick JANNAWAY, and her brother Charles SHEPHERD. She is survived by her brothers George and Don SHEPHERD, and her sister Shirley (Bill) HEFLER; her sister-in-law Marjorie (Chuck) SHEPHERD, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and their children in Eastern Canada.
Mom will also be sadly missed by her sons Grant (Janet) and Graeme (Leigh) and grandchildren Bradley (Tamara), Donovan (Janet), Claire (David) LUTTMANN, and Andrew, as well as great grandchildren Grant and Julianna LUTTMANN.
Betty was born and raised with her loving family in St. Catharines, Ontario. She was an active member of the Presbyterian Church in Canada from her early years; teaching Sunday school, leading C.G.I.T., and many years leading Couples Clubs and Young Peoples groups with Don. Betty was a life member and past president of the Women's Missionary Society and also an Elder at Rosedale Presbyterian Church in Toronto. She continued her work in St. Andrews Presbyterian Church during her time in Victoria, by visiting the elderly, helping with "Open church" days, plus Bible study and actively supporting the Book Club.
Work with books and literacy was a lifelong pleasure. Betty graduated in Library Science from Ryerson Institute. She worked as a librarian for television Ontario and taught reading to adults through York University, University of Toronto and George Brown College. As well as supporting literacy programs, church libraries, and book clubs, Betty loved to read to the young people in her family, giving them all books to treasure.
Betty supported and worked for many charitable organizations, during a lifetime of giving. The Arthritis Society of Canada, Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke Foundation, British Columbia Lung Association and Salvation Army were of particular interest for her heartfelt fund raising efforts.
A gracious hostess, Betty opened her home here and in Toronto to many travelers: students, church guests and others needing a place to rest. As well she welcomed numerous Friends to meetings, and parties for the organizations she supported.
Mom always said "the most important things in life were family and relationships". She always had time and energy for Friends and family especially the youngsters in her life. She expressed her regret that her life wouldn't be long enough to "see what these wonderful people would become"
The family wishes to express their thanks and immense appreciation to the staff at Oak Bay Lodge for the tender care they provided to our mother and grandmother these past months, especially in her final days. Thanks also to Reverend Dr. and Mrs. Currie as well as Dr. M.D. Hunt. A service will be held at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Victoria, on Thursday March 24th, 2005 at 10: 00 am. We will gather with Friends and family to celebrate Betty's life in May at Toronto, followed by interment of ashes. Arrangements will be announced later. You may wish to remember Betty by donating to the Oak Bay Lodge Foundation 2251 Cadboro Bay Road, Victoria, British Columbia, a charity of your choice, or by giving a book to a child.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of Anna BELOW, on March 21, 2005. Wife of the late Timofey BELOW. Loving mother of Annalisa VELLA (Tony,) and Halina SPADA (Frank.) Grandmother of David (Sandra) and Jim (Eva) VELLA and Marissa and Liana SPADA, great-grandmother of Cristina and Olivia. Anna was a remarkable person. She was born in her beloved Ukraine in 1923 during difficult times. As a child she suffered poverty and the death of her mother. At the age of 18, during World War 2, Anna was transported to Germany to work in forced labour camps, where she endured further trials including the death of her first daughter, Julia. Despite all her hardships, Anna had a deep reverence and a fierce joy of life. Anna never received any formal schooling, however, she spoke five languages and self-taught herself to read English. She found immense pleasure in the world of nature and had a passion for growing things. Her gardens were blooming masterpieces. Anna had strong moral convictions and was a natural feminist. Anna was extremely compassionate and she loved animals, especially her pet dogs and birds. Legions of wild birds flocked to her gardens on Jackson's Point, where she also cared for dozens of stray cats and other wildlife. Anna was truly one of a kind and will be deeply missed. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place Wednesday at 12 noon from St. Jerome's Roman Catholic Church (8530 Chinguacousy Rd., Brampton) followed by visitation at the Ward Funeral Home "Brampton Chapel" 52 Main Street South (Hwy. 10), Brampton from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Interment on Thursday at 11 a.m. at Briar Hill Cemetery, Sutton, Ontario.

JANSEN--In memory of my brother, my friend, Michael JANSEN, January 25, 1980 - February 7, 2003.
Pure Love
I have felt unconditional love
I have been protected by your hands
I have been crushed by your hands
I have held your little hand within mine
I have had my small hand held within your large hand
I have given you advice for many occasions
I have taken advice from you on just as many
I have lied to protect you from discipline
I have had you lie to protect me from a similar fate
I have screamed, yelled and argued with you
I have had you return the favor
I have held you in comfort in your moments of weakness, frustration and pain
I have been held by you in comparable moments
I have shared clothes and animals with you
I have had you share books and toys with me
I have built shelters, swam in ponds and gone sledding with you
I have had you soak me, pull me and lend a helping hand
I have told you many secrets
I have had you share yours with me
I have sat quietly with you through the hard times of our life
I have had you spin me around in a hug to make my hard times better
I have let you read my heart in the best and worst moments ever imagined in my life
I have teased, laughed, and cried with this wonderful man
I have loved and been loved unconditionally by this child, boy, man
I have had a little, big brother
Kudos to you Michael
You live on in our thoughts and our hearts
You live on in the little foot prints you have left behind for our enjoyment and love

JANSEN
-In memory of Michael Benn JANSEN who went home with Jesus on February 7, 2003 at age 23 years.
Michael,
You remain always in our thoughts and heart
Your presence does not grow dim nor depart.
Your picture smiles as your children kiss it.
It seems impossible you can miss it.
We are lonely here but we look around,
And everywhere signs of your life can be found.
The door you built, the cradles sweet,
Our corner shelves you made so neat.
Your coat, your boots, your sweater soft,
Your little girls cuddle them and don't feel so lost.
Alexandra laughs and we do too,
For she's a living image of you.
As Brianna sleeps with profile tender,
We see a face that we remember.
We know you are safe in Heaven above,
Enjoying peace and Jesus' love.
You trusted Christ to forgive your sin
So God's open gate you did enter in.
Your daughter says, "He beat us there."
But left us here just to prepare
The Way is clear since Jesus died.
For you and me He was crucified.
"Father forgive me," is all we need say
And we are ready for Heaven right away.
If death comes suddenly we need not fear,
For the Angels of God will be hovering near.
Already your Uncle Mark has joined you, Michael.
Soon there will be more as we end life's cycle.
What a reunion it will be on God's glorious shore,
When our loved ones we see to part no more.
Until then, we thank God for the time you were given.
And ask Him to ease the sorrow that is hidden.
Always missed and lovingly remembered by, Mom and Dad, Serena and Marius and family, Kyla, Erica, Peter and daughters Alexandra and Brianna.

Great Uncle of Hannah, Miles, Nathaniel, Gwen, Kyla and Emma. Pete was born in Hillegom, The Netherlands and was 11 years old when his family immigrated to Canada. They settled in the London area with the dream of building a business. Pete's destiny was to work in the greenhouse. From a very young age, he loved to accompany his father to the greenhouses where he worked. So while his parents worked elsewhere to provide a steady income, Pete was instrumental in the growth of the family business from its inception. Eventually he took over the business from his parents and has steadily and successfully built it to what it is today. Through the years he employed many family members and students and taught them an admirable work ethic. He worked right along with his staff and found it very difficult when he became ill and could no longer work. Pete was an admired Boy Scout Leader and a founding member of the London and District Florists Association. Special thanks to Dr. KERR, Dr. PERERA and Mary Liz. Your compassion for and care of Pete during his four years of treatment greatly helped ease his journey. Also thank you to the special women (ie Nurses) of Victorial Hospital who helped him through his final week. Pete touched the lives of all who knew him! He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. Cremation has taken place. Memorial visitation will be held in the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North (2 blocks north of Oxford) on Thursday from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the memorial service. The family invites all to attend the celebration of his life on Friday, November 11th, 2005 at 11: 00 a.m. in the funeral home chapel. Pete's ashes will then be inurned at St. Peter's Cemetery. Memorial contributions to the London Health Sciences Foundation - Cancer Centre would be appreciated.

Nol YOUNG had vision for daycare
He wanted a seamless day for schoolchildren
'Incurable' optimist devoted life to youngsters
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
A playful, joyful giant of a man, Nol YOUNG dedicated his life to children, their care and their welfare -- even though it was all theoretical until the birth of his own daughter just six years ago.
Mieke was an amazing gift, he used to say, and this wasn't theory, nor just the words of the smitten father he was. Four years before she was born, he was diagnosed with a brain tumour and given a few months to live. Perhaps it was his sunny, optimistic nature, perhaps it was something else, but YOUNG married his partner, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation writer Ann JANSEN, after his diagnosis and New Year's Eve surgery, and lived another 10 years. He died March 8 at age 51.
"When he was first sick, we never thought (having children) was a possibility," JANSEN said. "But he stayed well and the desire to have children is a very strong one. "
And he was someone who had a very strong sense of possibility.
"Cancer wasn't the only thing Nol had that was incurable. His optimism was," said Geoff WILLIAMS, a friend from their high school days in Scarborough. "Until close to his death he rarely expressed frustration or spoke of being upset with having cancer."
What did concern him -- greatly -- was establishing a child-care program for school-aged children within a federally funded universal child-care system. His vision was a seamless school day for children, in which they could go to one place for school and daycare. He was a founding member of the School Age Care Association of Ontario and the author of a 1994 book Caring for Play: The School and Child Care Connection.
He was the sparkplug behind a conference in Toronto six years ago and the driving force behind the association newsletter "Exploring Environments".
"He was very involved in things for children, advocacy for children, not-for-profit children's care," said Martha FRIENDLY, who saw him the day after the federal budget was announced in February. He had been staying in the palliative care unit at Toronto Grace hospital since the beginning of the year and by then was having some trouble speaking, but he wanted to know if the budget included finally -- funding for child care.
FRIENDLY is chair of the University of Toronto Childcare Resource and Research Unit, but she was one of a group of parents starting up the Alternative Primary School in about 1982 when she hired YOUNG to help with its faltering daycare. "He was tall -- about 6-foot-4 -- with a big, bushy head of red hair and I thought he was just the cutest guy. I tend to make snap judgments. I thought 'Okay, here's the guy (we need).'"
YOUNG told the hiring committee he wasn't strong on administration and that became a running joke. He was a creative, compassionate, imaginative and inspirational child-care worker: he started an outdoor education program in which the daycare kids experienced overnight outdoor camping, he designed a school-aged child-care program that focused on what the kids were interested in, including Friday afternoon swim lessons, but he never could pull together a budget.
It was the same when he arrived in the early childhood education program at George Brown College in 1987, ready to shake things up at a school known for its focus on the infant and toddler stages. He envisioned school boards and child-care centres working together to provide the seamless day, and it now exists at the early childhood education program funded by the province and run by George Brown at Ryerson public school.
YOUNG also initiated an innovative Canadian social history project, collecting archival photographs and organizing them into stories of child care, health, women's work, poverty and racism he often shared with classes at the college.
"He was trying to engage students in a more meaningful way of learning about history, and for early childhood education students to understand why we have the health care we have," said Pam DOYLE, his friend and colleague at George Brown.
She worked on the project with YOUNG in 1998. "He once affectionately referred to me as 'his staff,'" she recalled. "It was a faux pas he didn't make again."
But it was also typical of YOUNG, who could talk his, mainly female, colleagues into helping out and usually into doing the majority of the detail work on the many projects, conferences and causes he believed in. He got away with it because of his infectious idealism, youthfulness and exuberance. Still his Peter Pan-like ability to have the women in his life look after all its practicalities had a female friend at George Brown threatening to make up T-shirts proclaiming "I'm not Wendy."
He grew up in a family of women. "When he was born, everybody was thrilled," said his sister Betty VEITCH. He was the youngest child and only boy, and his three sisters fought over who was going to take him to school on his first day.
His father was an Anglican Church minister, idealistic and often away administering to the needs of his parishioners, something that wasn't lost on his son. When YOUNG was about five, he disappeared one day. The family finally found him having milk and cookies at the home of the church organist who lived with her elderly sister. He told his frantic mother he was "doing visiting just like Dad does."
YOUNG began working with children at the former Bolton Camp for underprivileged children and at the Eastview drop-in centre in downtown Toronto while attending the University of Toronto. He graduated -- eventually. "This was typical of how he approached academia: he liked it in theory better than practice," said WILLIAMS.
YOUNG started up and lived in a number of communal houses in the city: "From the first house on Follis to the apartment above the shawarma shop on College, in the house that shook in high winds on Clinton, and during brief diversions to the foreign lands east of the Don Valley Parkway, Nol managed to bring groups of people together in various degrees of harmony," WILLIAMS noted.
YOUNG and JANSEN made their home in a co-op near University of Toronto and a Starbucks, where YOUNG used to take his plastic travel mug every morning for a fill-up. He got to know the staff there so well, one of them started babysitting Mieke and another signed up in George Brown's youth services program. "He was a natural mentor," his wife said.
When he moved into the palliative care unit, the Starbucks staff arranged delivery of coffee to him.
His surgery last fall wasn't successful, but it might have given him an extra month or so of life, which he put to use. His was a family devastated by cancer: both his twin sisters died of it (Gwen had breast cancer and Lorraine ovarian cancer). His father had died of pancreatic cancer and his mother died of leukemia. Only Betty VEITCH survived kidney cancer.
Trinity Hospice organized a care team for YOUNG that was soon overflowing with Friends.
Pam DOYLE was a team member. "He still had ideas to the end. He still wanted to get people to work on committees. He said the team was life-giving; we were in awe of him."
When he still could, he did paddling exercises in his bed because he was hoping he might be able to go on one more canoe trip to Killarney. With DOYLE, he worked out the details of the Noel Young Award, which will be awarded to a student in George Brown's early childhood education program who has shown a commitment to advocacy and action.
About 450 people attended his memorial celebration at Trinity St. Paul's Church last month. There were cards and condolences. One was from Martha FRIENDLY's daughter Abigail, now 25 and studying in London, England. She was one of the kids at that daycare in 1982 where YOUNG first worked. She used to pretend she wasn't feeling well at school so she could sit with YOUNG in the daycare. "I always thought you were a giant," she wrote.
