PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10.30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queens Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queens University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. West, at Windermere, East of the Jane Subway, on Tuesday, November 29, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of his life will take place at Timothy Eaton Church on Wednesday, November 30 at 3.00 p.m. Donations may be made in his memory to a favorite charity. It is not often that a man can live for most of a century, can experience life before telephones, cars or airplanes were common, and can enjoy the fun of WiFi on an IMac, lucid to the end. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed.

Grace was a charter member of St. Stephen's-on-the-Hill in Mississauga and a stalwart member of the choir and countless other church activities. Her love of the outdoors and her paintings are among her enduring legacies to her family and Friends.

A private memorial will be held at Reynolds Funeral Home "Turner Chapel", Bracebridge followed by a private family interment at the St. Thomas Cemetery Columbarium in Bracebridge.

McGOWN, Dr. Kirby Lee
After a fierce battle with cancer "Lee" died peacefully in the arms of his loving wife, Marilyn, at his home in the beautiful Blueridge Mountains of Virginia, on January 31st, 2005. Born in Clarksvillle, Tennessee November 19th, 1943 and raised in Beaumont, Texas, Lee served in the United States Marine Corps. After his honorable discharge from the corps, Lee went on to earn his doctorate degree in business, and subsequently moved to Montreal, taking on the position of Professor of Marketing at Concordia University. In 2001, Lee retired and wanting to once again get south of the Mason-Dixon Line, returned to the United States to take up residency in the state of Virginia, home of his greatest hero General Robert E. Lee.
Lee was a serious history buff, a lover of the great outdoors, an avid traveller, and enjoyed life to the fullest. He will be dearly missed by his wife Marilyn McGOWN of Nellysford, Virginia, daughter Hilary McGOWN of Toronto, Ontario, sister Kathleen PHELAN of Fort Myers Beach, Florida, nephews Grant PHELAN of Naples, Florida and Adam PHELAN of Atlanta, Georgia.
True to his wishes, following a simple family graveside ceremony, Lee will be laid to rest at the McGown family cemetery in San Augustine, Texas on February 4th -- "home at last".
Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, www.cancer.ca or 1-888-939-3333 would greatly honor his memory and hopefully be of benefit to others facing cancer.

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.

McGOWN, Mary Jessie
Died quietly on Friday, May 13, 2005, one day short of her 82nd birthday. She was a loving and generous mother to Christine and David, sister to Don, Ann, and Edna, mother-in-law to Rima and Rob, and grandmother to Katie, Michael, Taryn, Gavin, Joshua and Sarah, but she loved perhaps most of all her late husband Keith with whom she spent over 50 years of her life. Mary spent much of her life changing gears. Born in Scotland, she moved to Canada as a child, and then continued to move, from Chatham to Toronto, to Uxbridge, to Sudbury, to Winnipeg, to Milton, to Barrie, and finally back to Toronto. Mary had a warm heart and a wry sense of humour and she was loved wherever she lived. She leaves behind a well-worn address book full of the names of loyal longtime and recent Friends. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17. A service will be held in the chapel on Wednesday, May 18 at 11: 00 a.m. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 20 Holly Street, Suite 101, Toronto, Ontario M4S 3B1, in lieu of flowers.
