PENSA 'made us all better'
The Londoner, who championed social causes for decades, lost her battle with cancer.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
London's social conscience is a little quieter today. Elaine PENSA, a passionate and strong voice for the poor, the sick and the discriminated against, died at home yesterday after a two-year battle with ovarian cancer.
She was 68.
Family, Friends and countless others she touched were left feeling both broken-hearted and lucky they knew her.
"It has been a horrible day," said friend Janet STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, a managing partner at Lerners law firm.
"But she has left us all with wonderful memories. She made us all better than we were."
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART and PENSA's paths crossed in the early 1980s and became permanently entwined with the creation of the legendary London Ladies Literary League, a group of 11 women who met once a month to talk about books, family and, thanks to PENSA, helping the community.
"We talked about books for about 20 seconds," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART recalled with a laugh. "Then we talked about family and everything else.
"She was our radical activist."
The list of initiatives PENSA championed spanned decades and issues, from London Lawyers Feed the Hungry to a committee that established the city's anti-hate group.
"She was the conscience for a lot of people," said Deb MATTHEWS, a close friend and London-North-Centre Liberal member of provincial parliament.
"She really cared about social justice, about inequality, racial or social inequality. She felt these issues in her heart and in her soul. She had a very generous spirit and she wasn't hesitant to make sure people heard about it."
PENSA went far beyond talking about the need for change. She started projects and followed each to completion, said Laila NORMAN.
The two women helped found London's Association for the Elimination of Hate.
"She was just a marvellous woman," NORMAN said. "I am still broken up about it."
PENSA firmly believed everyone, regardless of colour, creed or sexual orientation, had the right to live in safety, said Debbie LEE, the association's executive director.
"Elaine was amazing. She had so much spirit that it was like she was a young girl in a woman's body," LEE said.
PENSA's sense of social justice also led her into politics. She ran unsuccessfully for the Ontario Liberals, but led successful campaigns for Joe SWAN for city council and board of control.
"I couldn't have had a better friend and mentor," SWAN said. "She took me with all my warts, like she did with everyone. My God, we're going to miss her."
After being diagnosed with ovarian cancer and recognizing a lack of awareness about the deadly illness, PENSA threw herself into organizing the Run for Ovarian Cancer.
"She gave cancer an unbelievable battle," NORMAN said.
Despite her commitments to the community, family always came first, NORMAN said.
"They are a very loving, caring family."
In a recent Free Press interview, husband Claude PENSA described his perfect day as "sitting on the porch at our cottage with Elaine, family, Friends..."
"He will miss her tremendously," MATTHEWS said.
Besides her husband of 46 years, PENSA leaves four children and nine grandchildren.
Visitation takes place Monday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Donohue Funeral Home at 326 Waterloo St. in London.
The funeral mass will be held at St. Peter's Basilica, 196 Dufferin Ave. at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

LARSON, Ted (né Tadeusz ZAGOZDZON)
former President and Chief Executive Officer Borden Canada After a brief battle with cancer, Ted LARSON died peacefully, with his family at his side, on Tuesday, May 10, 2005, bringing to an end a rich and fulfilling life. His accomplishments were many, both in family and business. He leaves behind a loving family and many close, long-time Friends. Born Tadeusz ZAGOZDZON in Druskieniki, (Lithuania) in 1921 to parents Adela and Henryk, Ted left his family in 1939, narrowly escaping the invading forces. He made his way across Europe and eventually to England. Once there, he joined the 1st Polish Armored Division, which shortly after the Normandy invasion was dispatched to France to operate as a part of the 1st Canadian Army. In the ensuing battles with the retreating German forces, Ted was injured, and spent months recovering in hospital in Scotland. He returned to active service to discover that many of his close Friends had not survived the campaign. During his service, Ted distinguished himself both in the field of battle and in training exercises and was highly decorated. With the end of the war, Ted resigned from the military with the rank of Lieutenant, (later raised to Major). Ted graduated from Stockholm Technical Institute in Sweden with a B.S.c in Applied Chemistry. It was in Sweden that he met his first wife, Elsie LARSON. They married and several years later, Ted, Elsie and their 2 year-old daughter, Christina, emigrated to Canada. Ted (who had changed his last name to LARSON) was able to find work, and within a few years joined Borden Chemical Canada, a division of Borden, Inc. as a chemist, then technical director, vice president and finally President and Chief Executive Officer of Borden Canada. His contribution to the chemical industry earned him a lifetime fellowship designation with the Chemical Institute of Canada. He was also a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute, a member of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club and numerous other associations. Ted retired in 1987 after 32 years with the company. During his tenure as Chief Executive Officer, Borden achieved record growth and profits. In 1962, Elsie died of cancer, leaving Ted to raise 13 year-old Christina and 3 year-old Anna on his own. Several years later he met Mary SPILLER. Mary and Ted married, and with the marriage, the family grew to five with the addition of Mary's son John. Ted and Mary were soon blessed with a second son, Ted LARSON, Junior. A voracious reader who could converse fluently in a half-dozen languages, Ted was renowned for his intelligence, sharp wit and encyclopedic knowledge of history, world events, and management philosophies and techniques. He'll be greatly missed by his wife, Mary; his children, Christina, Anna, John and Ted; their spouses, Phil, Joe, Mary Beth and Julie; his grandchildren, Serge, Carl, Ben, Emma, Katrina, Ella, Laura and Matty; his Aunt Maria, sisters Alicia, Zosia and Barbara and many other relatives in Poland. He will also be missed by the many Friends he made over the years in the chemical industry, in business, socially, and in the Lake Kashwakamak cottage community. A memorial service will be held for Ted at Saint Margaret's-inthe-Pines Anglican Church, 4130 Lawrence Ave. East, Scarborough, On., on Friday, May 13 at 11: 00 a.m. Visitation at the church from 9: 30 a.m. Friends are invited back to the family home following the service to celebrate Ted's life. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Rouge Valley Health System Foundation in recognition of Dr. SWAN.

CARRELL, Nancy Jean (formerly McGOWN)
Nancy died peacefully on 10 May, 2005 in Princess Margaret Hospital surrounded by her family.
Nancy was born in Longview, Texas, on 25 July, 1944. She obtained a B.A. from Texas Tech University and an M.L.S. from North Texas State University. She moved to Montreal in 1974 with her then husband, Lee McGOWN, immediately entered the law faculty of McGill University and earned an LLB, LLM and a BCL. After a short time in private practice, she moved into corporate counsel work and eventually became General Counsel, Legal and Government Affairs at Avon Canada. From there she moved to Canadian National Railways as Deputy Secretary, to Celanese Canada Inc. as Vice-President and General Counsel and, finally, to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as Assistant General Counsel. She was a superb manager and all those with whom she worked were devoted to her.
She leaves her husband, John SWAN, who adored her, her daughter, Hilary McGOWN, to whom she was utterly devoted, her step-daughters, Ellen and Amanda SWAN, her mother, Mary Hasty CARRELL, her brother, Bill and his wife Janeen, her sister, Marilyn MARTIN, along with Molly, Min, Sara and Kate, all of whom will miss her greatly.
Nancy's enthusiasm for life was infectious and touched all those who came into contact with her. Her life was characterized by tremendous spirit and courage, by many loyal Friendships and, above all, by generosity, kindness and humour. Those who knew Nancy will never forget her laugh and her delight in jokes.
The family wishes to thank David LOACH and the nurses and other staff of Unit 14B at Princess Margaret Hospital for their kindness, gentleness and compassion.
Celebrations of Nancy's life will be held in Montreal at the University Club on Wednesday, 18 May, 2005 at 5: 00 p.m. and in Toronto at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Building, Front Street, on Wednesday, 25 May, 2005 at 5: 00 p.m.
The family would be very grateful if, instead of flowers, a donation were made in Nancy's name to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.

MOORE, Vivian
It was a long battle with a short, but peaceful ending. After fighting cancer successfully for five years, Vivian MOORE quietly slipped away from us all on October 23, 2005 in Toronto.
Vivian was no stranger to struggle. She fled the grinding poverty of a small mountain village in Greece as a child. On her own, she crossed the Atlantic on a steamer ship to live with an uncle and aunt in Canada in the hope of finding a better life. She grew up half a world away from her mother and brothers, living in a land where she did not speak the language. It was a challenge that would defeat many. But with unwavering determination, she persevered. And she did find that rich and wonderful and rewarding life.
A radiant young woman living in Hamilton, she met Allan MOORE, the man with the dancing blue eyes and infectious smile who became her true love and devoted soulmate. From Hamilton, they moved to Winnipeg, where they spent most of their 51 years together. They shared a life blessed with close family and warm Friendships. They entertained graciously. They cocooned with their children at the cottage. They celebrated both triumphs big and small with Friends and loved ones. And with infinite compassion, they were always the first to extend a hand when darkness descended into someone else's life. Rarely did they stand still for long. Together they criss-crossed the globe, sharing adventures together in Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia. But their most poignant trips were visits back to Greece where Vivian reconnected with her loving mother and adoring brothers.
Vivian will be deeply missed by her family. Her husband Allan, her sons Paul and David, Paul's wife Susan SWAN and David's partner Alfredo RODRIGUEZ. And she will also be deeply missed by the two boys, who could always put a smile on her face, her beloved grand_sons Graydon and Jonathan. Beyond family, there are countless people from Winnipeg, Victoria Beach, Toronto and throughout southern Ontario, who will be saddened by her passing. But all of us, family and Friends alike, will smile someday soon knowing that we were all privileged to have shared a walk along the same path as such a vibrant and loving soul.
A funeral service will be held in Toronto this Thursday, October 27, at 1: 00 p.m. at the Chapel of St. James-the-Less at St. James Cemetery, 635 Parliament Street. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, #1-888-939-3333.

LARSON, Ted (né Tadeusz ZAGOZDZON)
After a brief battle with cancer, Ted Larson died peacefully, with his family at his side, on Tuesday, May 10, 2005, bringing to an end a rich and fulfilling life. His accomplishments were many, both in family and business. He leaves behind a loving family and many close, long-time Friends. Born Tadeusz ZAGOZDZON in Druskieniki, (Lithuania) in 1921 to parents Adela and Benjamin, Ted left his family in 1939, narrowly escaping the invading forces. He made his way across Europe and eventually to England. Once there, he joined the 1st Polish Armored Division, which shortly after the Normandy invasion was dispatched to France to operate as a part of the 1st Canadian Army. In the ensuing battles with the retreating German forces, Ted was injured, and spent months recovering in hospital in Scotland. He returned to active service to discover that many of his close Friends had not survived the campaign. During his service, Ted distinguished himself both in the field of battle and in training exercises and was highly decorated. With the end of the war, Ted resigned from the military with the rank of Lieutenant, (later raised to Major). Ted studied chemistry at the Stockholm Technical Institute in Sweden, where he graduated in Applied Chemistry. It was in Sweden that he met his first wife, Elsie LARSON. They married and several years later, Ted, Elsie and their 2 year-old daughter, Christina, emigrated to Canada. Ted (who had changed his last name to LARSON) was able to find work, and within a few years joined Borden Chemical Canada, a division of Borden, Inc. as a chemist, then technical director, vice president and finally President and Chief Executive Officer of Borden Canada.

Peacefully, at home on November 18, 2005, surrounded by his children. He is now reunited with his wife Mary Lie Kwie Hwa, his parents and predeceased family in heaven. He was a wise, loving and devoted father to Su Yung (Daniel) and Paul Ming I (Andrea SWAN.) He will be remembered with fondness by his grandchildren Kenneth and Michael.

Since that time he has been unwavering in his faithfulness; a daily mass was his pillar of strength and humility. He opened his home and resources to many family and Friends when they first came to Canada.
