MELNICK- McKENNEY, Lily May (June 19, 1924-January 5, 2004)
One year ago today we lost a wonderful Mother and Nana.
Mom, know that we love you,
And still do today,
Know how much we miss you,
And in our hearts you will stay.
They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Helps the emptiness we feel.
Each morning when we wake,
We know that you are gone,
No one knows the heartache,
As we try to carry on.
The special years will not return,
When we were all together,
But like the love within our hearts,
You will be part of us forever.
Loved always. Donna and Tim, Rob, Laurie and Nathan, Ron and Carolyn and Shari and Tyler.

Larry passed away with family and Friends by his side in Comox, British Columbia, engulfed in love.

FOURNIE, Georgina (née CORRIVEAU)
Lived a glorious life. From her early days growing up in St. Joseph's, Ontario, to her 60 years in London, Ontario, she lived life to its fullest. Born May 11th, 1930, she peacefully passed after a very rapid bout with cancer on November 10th, 2005. Although sadly missed, we are grateful for the fact that she raised four wonderful children. She is predeceased by our dad Morley, her true love, who passed away on April 14th, 1987 and her parents Ed and Bertha CORRIVEAU. She is survived by sisters Yvonne JEFFERY (and husband Pete, who was like a brother) of St. Joseph and Marie WILD of Exeter. Georgina has four children and lots of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Rob FOURNIE and his children James FOURNIE of Montreal and Chelsey FOURNIE; Joe FOURNIE (Nancy) and their children: Meghan FOURNIE, Mike KIRKPATRICK (Rose) of Kitchener, Melody PLISHKA (Art) and their children Alex and Nick of Winnipeg, Miranda HODGSON (Tom) and their children Eric and Emma of Winnipeg, Brad FOURNIE (Amy) and their children Haley and Alyssa; Geoff FOURNIE (Tracy BRENNAN) and their children Sydney and Patrick; Darlene McKENNEY (Rick) and their children Cody and Tyler. Georgina always took great delight in having her family around her. Mom always laughed to the point of tears when we'd get together. "I have four crazy kids" she always said and marvelled at the next generation coming up. Throughout this tough period, her family was at her side as she was for us throughout our lives. She was and will continue to be an inspiration and model for all of us. Thank you Mom, we love you! To her many Friends who shared her life through the Catholic church, playing cards, dancing, travelling and of course the Legion (Victory Branch), we thank you. Although a short stay at University Hospital, we appreciate the support from the nursing team. Also a special thanks to the two outstanding professionals: Dr. Matt FELTHAM who showed compassion in our family's time of need and to Dr. Valerie SCHULTZ of the Palliative Care Pain Team who ensured mom's comfort. We would like to also express our appreciation for the thoughtfulness of Father Leslie and her childhood friend Sister Bernadette. Your prayers meant the world to her. Visitation will be held at the Lloyd R. Needham Funeral Chapel on Sunday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. with prayers to be held at 3 p.m. and a Legion service to be held at 7 p.m. under the auspices of the Victory branch.

Alone but never quite alone
I face an empty chair
But sometimes in the silence
I feel that you are there
My companion for so many years
No longer here with me
And yet is some mysterious ways
You keep me company.

Man, 22, drowns at quarries
By Joe BELANGER, Free Press Reporter
A 22-year-old Caledonia man drowned Saturday while swimming in a popular private park in Innerkip, northeast of Woodstock.
Police did not release the man's name, saying his family had not been contacted.
Oxford community police said the man was visiting Trout Lake park, a privately owned swimming hole popular among young people, who also refer to it as the quarries.
The park was packed Saturday as people sought relief from the heat, which climbed higher than 30°C.
At about 8: 45 p.m., the man jumped from a diving board about six metres above the water.
"He went into the lake and didn't resurface," Const. Don McKENZIE said yesterday.
Innerkip volunteer fire fighters recovered the man's body and attempted to resuscitate him.
The man was taken to Woodstock General Hospital, where he was declared dead soon after arrival.
An autopsy is expected to confirm the cause of death.
The privately run park, which is a day-use and a camping facility, was open yesterday.
One park user said she heard reports the man did a somersault off the diving board and possibly hit his head with his knees on the way down.
Diving boards of various heights surround the lake, which was once a quarry.
There are no lifeguards at the park, but signs warn people to swim at their own risk.
Yesterday, park officials refused to discuss the incident.
When asked whether similar incidents had occurred at the park, a woman who answered the phone said: "We can't give you any information about (the victim's) status."
Meanwhile, a 67-year-old Romanian man remained in critical condition yesterday from injuries he suffered in a single-car crash that claimed the life of his 61-year-old wife.
Brandusa-Maria MOSNEAGU was killed Saturday in the noon-hour crash that occurred while the driver of the car in which she was a passenger attempted to pass another vehicle on Wellington Road north of Saint Thomas.
The car skidded out of control, rolled and caught fire.
Brandusa-Maria MOSNEAGU died in Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital, while her 67-year-old husband, Niculae MOSNEAGU, was in critical condition at Victoria Hospital in London.

Respected doctor most proud of his musical achievements
By Sarah FRALEY, Free Press Reporter
He was a Middlesex County coroner for almost four decades, a dedicated doctor and father to three children who all went into health care.
But John (Ozzie) MERRITT also will be remembered as a talented musician and a man who loved a good game of golf.
"(It) was a passion of his. He had three holes-in-one," said Rick MERRITT, his oldest son.
"His biggest passion and what I would say was his biggest success, was he was an accomplished musician."
MERRITT, who battled Alzheimer's disease in his final years, died June 10 at 89.
A talented piano player, MERRITT played with the Morgan Thomas Dance Band on radio shows broadcast coast-to-coast in the 1930s.
He also played at Port Stanley's Stork Club, which attracted such big-name musicians as Louis Armstrong and Guy Lombardo.
"What he achieved at piano most people never achieve," son Rick MERRITT said. "He had his teaching certificate by the time he was 16."
Born in Grimsby, MERRITT graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1943. He began practising in Delaware after serving in the army until 1946.
After seven years, he moved to Lambeth and served as a coroner for London and Middlesex County for 39 years.
He retired from that job at 70 but practised medicine for seven more years, completely retiring in 1994.
Rick MERRITT, founder of the Dove Dental Centres, said he doesn't see the kind of dedication that his father had in the medical field today. A good work ethic was something his father inherited from his mother Ethel, he said.
"She always said 'If a job is worth doing, it is a job worth doing well, to the best of one's ability or it's a job not worth doing at all,' " he recalls.
MERRITT made that his life's philosophy.
Friends and colleagues remember him as an excellent physician.
"He was a solid practitioner and his patients loved him," said Howard CAMERON, an orthopedic surgeon in London. "He was always a perfect gentleman."
"He was a good friend and a good family man," added Don MacKENZIE, a London surgeon who attended medical school with MERRITT.
As a father, "he was always preparing you for being an adult," said his son. "He was a good all-around fellow but very strict. There wasn't a lot of compromise in his life."
As a child, Rick MERRITT said he learned valuable lessons -- such as the consequences of dangerous driving -- when he went with his father on house calls or to vehicle crashes.
MERRITT was proud all three of his children pursued medical professions. Rick and Robert MERRITT both went into dentistry, and daughter Linda BRAY is a registered nurse.

Service for Ian LANG on Saturday
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Page
A man who dedicated his life to teaching, public service and the environment has died.
Clearview Township Ward 3 councillor Ian LANG, 62, died Monday afternoon at his home near Dunedin.
"It's very shocking," Clearview Township Mayor Fran SAINSBURY said during an interview at the municipal office in Stayner. "We are all extremely sad for Marjorie and the family."
The mayor said council and municipal staff will do whatever possible to support LANG's family.
A sign of compassion was already evident at the township office Tuesday -- flags were lowered to half~staff
LANG, a seven-year member of council, was remembered fondly by colleagues and staff.
Chief administrative officer Sue McKENZIE, who regularly rode with LANG to and from council meetings, was near tears as she spoke.
"He wasn't just a councillor -- he was a friend. He was an amazing person, very devoted to the job."
Deputy-Mayor Ken FERGUSON said he's lost a "friend and good colleague who's input will he missed."
FERGUSON, who last spoke with LANG over the phone for about 30 minutes on Friday, said: "while we didn't always agree we respected each other and that allowed for a good relationship."
Ward 7 councillor Shawn DAVIDSON called LANG's death "tragic."
"He was very dedicated, one of our hardest working council members," DAVIDSON said.
Former mayor Bob McKEE, who now lives in Collingwood, said he was saddened to learn of LANG's death.
"Of my council Ian was among the top three people we had," said McKEE.
"He was a real asset to us, giving a lot of his time."
During the last term of council, LANG oversaw the launch of a municipal newsletter in order to maintain better communication with residents.
LANG's passion was the environment, something evident from the committees and boards he served.
The retired science teacher, who taught for 29 years at North Collegiate in Barrie, served on the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority, the Niagara Escarpment Commission, the Clearview Tree Committee, the Lake Simcoe Nottawasaga River Watersheds Assimilative Capacity Study and the Blue Mountain Watershed Trust Foundation.
Outside of the environment realm, LANG was on the. Creemore Medical Centre Services Board and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity.
As a councillor he successfully advocated that Clearview spend almost $300,000 on provincially mandated water system upgrades at aging community halls, saying the facilities were the heart and soul of rural life and must be kept open.
LANG is originally from Scotland. He came to Canada about 30 years ago.
He and his wife, Marjorie, have two grown daughters.
Earlier this year LANG returned to Scotland, where his mother still lives, taking a grandchild along for the trip. At the time, LANG remarked while it was nice to visit he'd long since considered Canada his home.
A memorial service for LANG will be held at Creemore's Station on the Green, 10 Caroline Street, at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
McKENZIE said the family is still waiting for autopsy results to determine the cause of death.
For more information, call Fawcett Funeral Home in Creemore at 466-2108.

MacDONALD, Finlay Michael
59, died Thursday morning, December 30, while playing tennis in Halifax.
Born in Sydney, August 2, 1945, he was the son of the late Senator Finlay MacDONALD and Ann (MacKENZIE) MacDONALD. He was educated at St. Francis and Saint Mary's University High School, St. Francis Xavier University and Dalhousie Law School. Finlay spent his professional life in broadcasting and politics.
Finlay began his broadcasting career at CJCH Radio in Halifax and then, while still in law school he moved on to television, creating the current affairs program ID which was the predecessor to ATV's top-rated Live at 5. After anchoring and reporting at CJOH-TV in Ottawa, Finlay became CTV's first national correspondent for Atlantic Canada. Finlay rose to the pinnacle of his profession when he was posted as a national reporter for CTV News on Parliament Hill. His marquee accomplishments included being the first Canadian journalist to ever interview Cuban President Fidel Castro in Finlay was an entrepreneur and an innovator. He built a pioneering television network, The Star Channel, which revolutionized the pay television industry in Canada. In recognition of his accomplishments, he was appointed to a Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission National Royal Commission. He later used his expertise to become one of the nation's leading regulatory and licensing consultants in the broadcasting industry.
Never one to seek the spotlight, Finlay offered counsel to countless successful business, political and professional leaders. A life-long lover of politics and a committed Progressive Conservative, Finlay was among the first to recognize the potential of Nova Scotia Premier John Hamm, and served as a trusted advisor from the premier's earliest days in politics.
Fin was a consummate gentleman whose compassion and style were legendary, as were his infectious laugh and his ability to live every moment to the fullest. Finlay loved tennis. He loved winters in Long Boat Key, Florida and summers in Chester. His idea of a perfect day was two sets of tennis in the morning, "tubing" with his nieces and nephew, two more sets of tennis in the afternoon and then some quiet time on the wharf with Maggie and the family dogs, Jack and Eddy.
He is survived by his beloved Maggie; sister Mary (Kevin) RYAN, Halifax; brother Ian (Sandra), all of Halifax. He is also survived by his nieces and nephew, Emmett and Katherine RYAN, and Sonja and Dana MacDONALD, all of Halifax.
Visitation will be Monday, January 3rd from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Snow's Funeral Home on Windsor Street in Halifax.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated by Reverend Father Thomas Mabey on Tuesday, January 4th at 10 a.m. at Saint Mary's Basilica on Spring Garden Road in Halifax.

VAN EGMOND, Anthony, 1838
Tuesday, January 4, 2005 - Page S7
Nobleman-soldier born in Holland in 1778. A veteran of the Napoleonic wars who fought on the side of the French, he later settled in Upper Canada with his family. In 1828, he bought a large parcel of land in what was called the Huron Tract on condition that he build roads and prepare it for settlement. He was soon in conflict with the authorities and joined reformers led by William Lyon MacKENZIE. VAN EGMOND agreed to be military commander in a future uprising, but MacKENZIE took action before he could begin to raise an army. On December 4, 1837, he arrived at Montgomery's Tavern on Yonge Street only a few hours before government troops attacked rebel forces had gathered there and urged retreat. MacKENZIE refused and, after the rebel defeat, VAN EGMOND was found hiding in a farmhouse and placed under arrest. Held in the damp and unheated Don Jail, he became seriously ill and died. Although he was posthumously pardoned, the government confiscated the VAN EGMOND family land holdings. He was buried in a graveyard near Egmondville outside of Seaforth, Ontario

William MacMurray LOUGHEED
By Donna DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Friday, February 4, 2005 - Page A16
Neurosurgeon, teacher, husband, father, boat-builder. Born July 9, 1923, in Toronto. Died September 30, 2004, in Barrie, Ontario, of respiratory failure, aged 81.
There he sat, a short, round-faced young man, hunched over the dining room table, Plasticine model in hand. At right, his wife's sewing kit. At left, a brain X-ray. With patience, the young surgeon recreated that brain, blood vessels, arteries, tissue everything. He tested needle entry angles, complexities of reach and retrieval. "Test" over, he left for Toronto General Hospital. Bill LOUGHEED's legacy is larger than his own life. First, surgeon. Then, teacher of medical residents. Researcher. Author of medical papers that shifted neurosurgery to new heights.
Excellent teachers stand back and let students learn. Even in life-and-death operating room experiences, Bill could navigate residents through complex neurosurgical procedures with heroic patience and achieve a positive outcome, the medical resident's pride of achievement intact.
The country's medical geniuses pay tribute to the man with the growly voice, the operating room work-boots, the ability to relate a procedure involving minute operations on the brain to the building of a boat. Son, brother, husband of doctors, Bill thought like an engineer. He looked ahead, tested, thought things through.
Bill's family grew up watching their father "operate" on the Christmas turkey. Precision, instruction -- doled out with humour and candour -- were part of the trademark style of the man whose life-work has saved thousands of lives.
Through neurosurgeon Dr. K. G. McKENZIE, Bill decided to pursue research into the blood vessels of the brain. Consider his firsts: being Canada's first (and one of the world's first) neurosurgeon to use the microscope in the operating theatre; designer of the world's innovative, life-saving aneurysm clip; performer of the world's first long-vein artery bypass for the brain. During his lifetime he became a neurosurgical superstar.
A man with several communities, Bill balanced, often precariously, the needs of a vibrant neurosurgical practice, a demanding operating schedule, research responsibilities, teaching position, and cottage community where his love of boats embraced the entire family.
Bill built an eight-foot boat for each of his grandchildren. By the time each was 3, they were -- life-jacketed -- rowing green or yellow punts up and down the waters of Georgian Bay, calling on their Friends as awestruck parents looked on.
He believed potential surgeons should be graded on woodworking as well as science. He used the same approach in his garage as in his research labs. Make a model. Then test it. Rebuild it. Retest it. Don't use the marine mahogany until you're sure it's going to work.
Bill LOUGHEED respected people in every walk of life, his O.R. nurses as much as surgical residents. He gave the same attention to the marina owner where he kept his boat as he did to the hospital Chief Executive Officer.
Bill met his wife, Grace, in medical school and Grace concentrated on his career and their family of five. She enhanced his ability to reach for the highest branch. Together they were impulsive, creative, funny, forgiving. When Bill retired in 1991, they moved to Barrie to be near family. Here Grace died in 1995. In the same home, sailboats on the bay outside his front window, Bill suffered a final respiratory attack. Bill's kids, along with his later life partner, Margot MacKAY, celebrated his life with his "communities." In his later life, Bill created a wonderland for squirrels, for blue jays, for cardinals, for tiny finches, coaxing them to his side for daily treats; his last years full of wonder at the power of a kind voice and patient hand.
Donna is a friend of the family.

BUTCHERD, Stanley H. (April 14, 1924-April 26, 2005)
Passed away suddenly at Welland General Hospital at the age of 81. Stan leaves behind his loving wife, best friend and life-long travel companion, Dorothy (née DEARING,) many close Friends and colleagues.
After serving as a Flying Officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Stan graduated from the University of Toronto School of Architecture in 1950. A Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, and past president of the Ontario Association of Architects (1969), Stan practised architecture for over 54 years - an achievement that was recognized by the Ontario Association of Architects in 2004. Stan's career began in Toronto in the offices of noted architect John LANGE, before forming a private practice with Bob CALVERT. In 1957, he moved to Port Colborne to establish his own company. He was a founding president of the Niagara Chapter of the Ontario Association of Architects, founding member of the Port Colborne L.A.C.A.C., and was responsible for the design of many civic buildings throughout the Niagara region.
Throughout his life, Stan was an inspiration and mentor to many younger architects. Nowhere was this more evident than when he formed a partnership toward the end of his career with Robert MacKENZIE. Their firm subsequently joined Quartek, a multi- discipline design and engineering company, where Stan continued to practise until finally being allowed to retire at age 80.
With Dorothy, he shared a love of travel, music, and art that endeared them to Friends of all ages. In the glint of his eyes, one discovered his sense of humour and quiet intelligence. His profound commitment to citizenry led Stan to become a President of the Port Colborne Lion's Club, a member of the Police/ Citizen's Advisory Committee, and an active member of the community's First Lutheran Church.
Predeceased by his parents, Nellie and Harry (of Eastbourne, England), he will be greatly missed by his wife, Dorothy, and their Godchildren, Don RHYNAS (Jane MacDONALD) of London, Ann SMALE of Kitchener (Wayne MOORE), Jane SMALE (Anthony VANLEEUWEN), and Peter SMALE (Nancy BENITZ) of Toronto.
Friends will be received at the Port Colborne Chapel of the Davidson Funeral Homes 135 Clarence St. on Thursday and Friday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 30 at 2: 00 pm at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 688 Elm Street, Port Colborne, followed by burial at St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery and a reception. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please make donations to Doctors without Borders, 2200 Yonge Street, Toronto, or to the Welland Humane Society.

GROPPER, Naomi Laura (STEINER)
Born October 3, 1970 passed away peacefully on June 23, 2005 surrounded by her family.
Despite being diagnosed with a brain tumor almost year ago, Naomi continued to live her life to the fullest. She continued to have hope, and continued to give to, and draw strength from, an enormous group of family and Friends.

Her university education was at McGill (B.A., 1990), Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1989) and University of Toronto (M.B.A., 1998) where she was her class president. From 1994 to 1996 she worked, first as a volunteer, and then as a manager, at The United Way of Greater Vancouver. From 1988 to 2001 she worked as a management consultant with AT Kearney, dividing her time between her home with Daniel in Toronto and cities across North America, including New York where she and Daniel lived from 2000 to 2002. In 2002 Naomi and Daniel returned to Vancouver, where Naomi worked with Arts Umbrella where she was instrumental in the establishment of the endowment fund in honor of Carol Henriquez.
Naomi was also active in the community, as a board member of the Jewish Family Service Agency of Vancouver and co-chair of its 'Innovators Lunch' held in April 2004, and co-chair of the Ben Gurion Society and of the Family Day of the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver.
Family and Friends were central to Naomi's life. She had the ability to touch each of them all of the time. Her children bear the indelible stamp of her love. She will be missed and remembered by many.

Edith FIRTH, Librarian And Scholar: 1927-2005
Historian who wrote the book on early Toronto was a librarian with a gift for inspired research, writes Sandra MARTIN. Although she retired in 1982, the Toronto Public Library still profits from her work
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, July 30, 2005, Page S9
A woman of impeccable intellectual standards, Edith FIRTH edited landmark collections of documents about the early history and culture of Toronto. As head of Canadian manuscripts at the Toronto Public Library for 30 years, she belonged to the tradition of scholar/librarians -- professionals who publish their own research while providing the tools that enable others to write and study.
"She created a scholarly haven for historians and geographers in the Baldwin Room," said geographer John WARKENTIN, who first met her as a graduate student in the early 1950s. "Aside from leading just about everybody and their brother to the materials that they built their reputations on, she was very important as a historian," said writer Stephen OTTO. " Almost anything she put on paper herself will stand the test of time."
"She was much more than capable," said historian Maurice CARELESS. "She was very confident and rightly so because she knew what she was doing. I felt a great sense of trustworthiness in her work." As for her books, "they really were very good."
Tall, elegant and reserved, she had a quick sharp wit that she shared with close Friends and confidants. While clumsy or inept researchers were treated courteously and given access to the documents they requested, she was known to mutter: "That man is a menace."
"We are still reaping the benefit of what she did throughout her career," said David KOTIN, her successor as manager, special collections, at the Toronto Public Library. "She put her stamp on them and the staff." The library's holdings now include 25,000 books relating to Canada published before 1900, about 30,000 broadsides, posters and ephemera and 80,000 pictures.
Edith Grace FIRTH grew up in North Bay, Ontario, where her geologist father had taken up teaching high-school science. The youngest of four children of Thomas and Amy FIRTH, she left home in the late 1940s to attend the University of Toronto, graduating with an honours degree in modern history and a degree in library science.
After graduation, she joined the staff of the Toronto Public Library, where she worked in general reference. In 1952, she was put in charge of the Treasure Room, where the library's rare books, especially Canadiana, were housed.
She began studying for a master's degree in history in the early 1950s while continuing to work at the Toronto Public Library and to prepare her first publication, Guide to the Manuscript Collections in the Toronto Public Libraries, which was issued in 1954.
Prof. WARKENTIN, the geographer, met her in J.M.S. CARELESS's senior seminar on the history of Old Ontario at that time. They were both a little older than the other students and they "hit it off together." He remembers her "steely regard" for good scholarship. "Her standards were very high, and she was quite independent-minded."
Prof. CARELESS remembers her as "highly capable and very engaging and intelligent." She never finished the graduate degree, perhaps because she was doing historical research in her job and didn't feel the need of another qualification. In 1961, she completed Early Toronto Newspapers, 1793-1867, a catalogue of newspapers published before Confederation in the Town of York and the City of Toronto.
When the Toronto Public Library opened its Reference Library Addition in its building at St. George and College Streets in 1960, Ms. FIRTH was put in charge of the new Baldwin Room of Manuscripts and Canadiana (named after Reformer Robert Baldwin, an early advocate of responsible government) and the Toronto Room, which housed current and bound volumes of Toronto newspapers and the Early Toronto Picture Collection.
She and Prof. WARKENTIN renewed their Friendship when they met up again in the early 1960s as volunteers with the Champlain Society, an organization devoted to increasing public access to and awareness of our documentary heritage. "She was the general editor of the Ontario series and I was elected to the council [of the Champlain Society]," he said. "We were quite junior members," at least compared to the "titans of Canadian history" on the board at the time -- a list that included W.L. Morton, Donald Creighton, C.P. Stacey, W.K. Lamb (Dominion archivist and the first national librarian of Canada) and Leslie Frost, the recently retired premier of Ontario. "And there was Edith -- shy and reserved, but, if she made any remarks, they listened because it was very clear that she was respected as a scholar."
The early 1960s was an optimistic time for Canadian studies in the run-up to the centennial celebrations. Ontario, and its capital city, were no exception. It was in this era, when public money was available to underwrite large historical projects, that Ms. FIRTH made her mark as the editor of The Town of York, 1793-1815, which was published by University of Toronto Press and the Champlain Society in 1962 (with financial support from the Ontario government, thanks largely to Mr. Frost and his successor, John Robarts). She had spent more than three years amassing and editing documents related to the early history of Toronto from the library's own collections, the federal and provincial archives and many other repositories and historical societies in Canada and the United States.
In a review in The Globe, Col. STACEY, the military historian, declared The Town of York "the most important book on the history of Toronto in many years." He described it as "a big handsome volume of documents" from "the day in 1793 when Col. and Mrs. John Graves SIMCOE and the Queen's Rangers arrived to found the settlement, down to the end of the War of 1812, during which the place was twice raided by the Americans."
Five years later, on the eve of the centennial year, Ms. FIRTH compiled The Town of York, 1815-1834: A Further Collection of Documents of Early Toronto. She pushed the story ahead to the incorporation of "dirty little York" into the city we know as Toronto and the election of journalist William Lyon MacKENZIE as its first mayor.
By then, the newly minted Toronto, which had more than 9,000 inhabitants and was the biggest town in Upper Canada, had survived the cholera epidemic of 1832 and the nascent battles between MacKENZIE the reformer and the members of the ruling oligarchy later known as the Family Compact. In reviewing this volume for The Globe, Col. STACEY praised Ms. FIRTH for "the skill and ingenuity with which she has hunted documents from their hiding places and explained them, and for the lucid introduction with which the volume begins."
Prof. WARKENTIN was a frequent user of the Baldwin Room, which moved to the new Raymond Moriyama facility on Yonge Street that was opened as the Metro Toronto Reference Library in the early 1970s. He had many occasions to watch Ms. FIRTH in action on the floor, or in her office "scribbling away on her research" and attending to administrative work.
Of course, she wasn't working all the time. She and her older sister, Mary, an English teacher, lived in a house in Etobicoke, cared for their widowed mother and attended to an older sister who suffered from Alzheimer's disease. When they could, the two sisters travelled -- mainly to England -- and collected commemorative China, a passion that had begun when Edith's father had given her a plate celebrating the young Princess Elizabeth after the coronation of George Virgin Islands.
After Mary died in 1975, Ms. FIRTH continued to build the collection, which eventually included a Charles II plate from 1673, wares celebrating William and Mary and the Glorious Revolution of 1688 and a 1722 mug mourning the death of Queen Anne. The collection of nearly 400 pieces, which was displayed on shelves in the recreation room in her basement, was eventually sold at auction for £160,000 at Christie's in London in 1999.
She retired in 1982 at 55, perhaps with the intention of writing more books or devoting more time to her hobbies and her nieces and nephews. The following year, she published Toronto in Art: 150 Years Through Artists' Eyes to coincide with the city's sesquicentennial. The selection was limited to 70 works by 130 artists chosen for their historical value in depicting the city from 1834 to 1983. It won the City of Toronto Book Award in 1984.
Writer Stephen OTTO met her first as a library user and then came to know her well when he headed up the Ontario Heritage Conservation program in the mid-1970s. The odd thing, says Mr. OTTO, was that she didn't write more actively or productively after she retired. It was "almost as if she wanted to throw away her scholarship," he said. Instead, she indulged her passion for Dandie Dinmont dogs, a breed of Scottish terriers.
In the past few years, the family affliction of Alzheimer's disease began flexing its deadly tentacles. Lawyer Joseph CERMAK (a dear friend who met her after he arrived as a refugee from Czechoslovakia in 1949 and found a job as an assistant at Toronto Public Library) kept a caring watch over her, organizing a housekeeper and finally a nursing home a few weeks ago.
Edith Grace FIRTH was born in Lindsay, Ontario, on January 27, 1927. She died of Alzheimer's disease in Toronto on July 23, 2005. She was 78. She is survived by a brother-in-law, a sister-in-law, six nieces and nephews and their families.

HARRIS, Standish Alan (1901-2005)
On August 14th, 2005 Alan passed away peacefully at his country home in Caledon, in his 105th year. Adoring husband of the late Naomi Francis (PICK) and stepfather to her son the late Robert Sholto DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. Loving 'Pappy' to Margot CURRY and family and Michael DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS and family. Uncle Alan to Alan HODGINS, Mel HODGINS, Betty McWHINNIE, Jim HARRIS, Aldine BEAUMONT and their families. After leaving his home in Kilmallock, County Limerick and graduating from Trinity College in Dublin Alan made his way to Toronto. He had a brief job with the T. Eaton Co. and then landed the job he wanted, to teach. He became a teacher at Upper Canada College and was there from 1925-1965. Alan was a most admired and respected teacher. He loved the challenge of teaching Mathematics and was at his best when dealing with those who found the subject difficult. He was the head of the Mathematics Department for 30 years. Upper Canada College's property in Norval was a great love of Alan's and he personally supervised and assisted with the planting of thousands of trees there, results of his efforts are remembered as the 'Harris Arboretum'. After his wife's death Alan moved to his property in Caledon with his dog Rheba. He maintained a first-rate vegetable garden and wonderful flowerbeds. He also spent many years reforesting this property. He fed countless birds each winter and took great joy in his last years observing them with his binoculars on the bird feeder outside his living room. Much to the delight of many visitors Alan had the chickadees feeding from their hands. Alan had wonderful loving care over the last few years from Margot and Shane CURRY, Wendy DARROW, Thierry FOURNIER, Nancy WENGLEWICK, Evelyn BUNKER, Nancy SINCLAIR and Diane McKENZIE and her Victorian Order of Nurses team. Also Dr. Stuart BIRNIE and Elizabeth BIRNIE. A private family funeral service was held at the Egan Funeral Home, Bolton on Wednesday, August 17. Interment of cremated remains at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto.

Donald Roy MacKENZIE
By Rosemary GANLEY, Tuesday, October 18, 2005, Page A26
Husband, grandfather, teacher, Arctic guide, farmer, neighbour. Born July 9, 1932, in Ripley, Ontario Died May 5 in Peterborough, Ontario, of cancer, aged 72.
Don MacKENZIE was an ordinary man who led an extraordinary life. He died in Peterborough on May 5, after living courageously with cancer for several years.
Don's knowledge and love of the natural world led to his becoming an inspirational teacher of geography, a respected leader of tours to the High Arctic, and a friendly farmer with a "cut-your-own" Christmas tree farm and a steam-filled sugar shack.
Born in 1932 in Ripley, in southwestern Ontario, Don came from a musical family with Scottish roots. His father Roy was a pipe major and his mother Violet played piano. Each of the four MacKenzie brothers played an instrument in the MacKenzie Family Band and Don's was the snare drum.
At 18, Don began teaching in a one-room school in the hamlet of Lothian, and later, a three-room school in Chesley. During those early years, teaching also included maintaining a wood stove. "I kept a pot of creamed corn on the stove for lunches," Don once said.
During the summers, while earning his B.A., he met his perfect match: Joyce HUXTABLE of Oshawa, who was preparing to teach physical education. Don and Joyce married in 1957 and raised three children together.
Not long after they were married, they invested in a cottage on Lake Weslemkoon, near Bancroft. Summers at the lake were an important part of Don's life. He was a steward of the lake and an active member of the Cottagers' Association.
At Peterborough Collegiate and Vocational School, Don taught geography for 23 years. Through his considerable slide collection, he brought the landscape into the classroom for his students. Don spent winter weekends volunteering with the Canadian Ski Patrol System at the local ski hills and Nordic trails. He dedicated 40 years to the organization, as a patroller, instructor, examiner and member of the national executive. In 1988, Don was honoured to patrol the Nordic events at the Calgary Olympics.
The north drew Don in a profound way. In 1978, he spent a sabbatical year in England at Cambridge University's Scott Polar Research Institute. The next year he was invited to lead a tour to the Canadian High Arctic. This would be the first of 23 trips over the next 14 years. Don took his tourists to remote destinations Grise Fjord, Pond Inlet, Ellesmere Island, Resolute Bay, and Beechy Island. He was a knowledgeable, organized, and patient tour leader.
Don spent much of his later life tending the hobby farm where he and Joyce lived for the past 20 years. His daughter Louise noted that "he seemed spiritually connected to the land and all that lives on it. He would buy special trees to encourage birds." Each year, the MacKenzies welcomed upward of 500 families who made a seasonal trip to the farm to cut their Christmas tree, enjoying hayrides and hot chocolate. Don donated part of the proceeds to Jamaican Self Help, an international development group he supported in Peterborough. When he was gravely ill, many long-time MacKenzie Friends came to the farm to prepare Don's trees for future years.
Don leaves his beloved wife Joyce, his children Ian, Louise and Janice, and his seven grandchildren, ages 23 to one year.
The night he died, after just three days in palliative care in Peterborough, a shooting star greeted Joyce and her sister Donna as they drove back to the farm at midnight.
Shooting star he was, but also a warm, grounded teacher, and a gifted friend.
Rosemary is Don's friend.

McKENZIE, Hon. Lloyd George, Q.C.
Was born August 20, 1918, died October 29, 2005, at Lion's Gate Hospital, North Vancouver, after suffering a stroke. He was born in Penticton, British Columbia, moved to Victoria with his family at age 10 when his father became Minister of Mines and Labour in the Tolmie Administration, and except while on military service and at law school lived there for 46 years. After two years at Victoria College, he enlisted in the Westminster Regiment and married Betty (née MAHAREY) before leaving for Europe, where he served as an infantry officer throughout the Italian campaign. On his return, in 1945, he enrolled in the first class at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Law, of which he became class President, articled to J. Howard Harman, Q.C., and thereafter practised for 26 years with the Harman firm. He was President of the Victoria Bar, a Bencher of the Law Society of British Columbia and for 19 years a Governor of the University of Victoria, including a term as Chairman. He had a widely-varied practice, appearing for the Crown or accused in numerous criminal prosecutions and acting for the Province in notable civil suits, including the British Columbia Electric takeover litigation and several major taxation cases, before being appointed in 1974 to the British Columbia Supreme Court, which required that he move to Vancouver. During 1977-78 he was Chairman of the Royal Commission on the British Columbia Railway. After retirement from the bench, in 1993, he acted for 10 years as Information Officer for the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, a position without precedent in which he dealt daily with the media, often on important issues about which sitting judges cannot speak. He is survived by Betty, his treasured companion for more than 60 years; also by Anthony McKENZIE, nephew, Barbara (Mark) PIMLOTT, cousin, and extended family: Frank and Patricia SMITH, Andrea SMITH, Clyde (Linda) SMITH, Kathleen (Lyn) BROOKS and Frances (Ian) MURRAY. In accordance with Lloyd's wishes there will be no service. The family asks that no flowers be sent.

James KAVANAGH and James HENDERSON, 1837 -- Died This Day
Friday, December 9, 2005, Page S9
Members of the Children of Peace movement, they were among 800 rebels under the leadership of William Lyon MacKENZIE who briefly defended Montgomery's Tavern on Yonge Street against the militia in what is now Toronto. A Quaker sect from the village of Hope (now Sharon, Ontario), the Children of Peace was led by the charismatic Davidson WILLSON, whose concern for the poor caused him to become radically involved in the politics of Upper Canada. Accordingly, many of his followers joined the rebellion even though they were pacifists. In the brief conflict at the tavern, James KAVANAGH and James HENDERSON were shot and killed.

MacKENZIE, Peter Donald
Passed away peacefully, at home, surrounded by his family, on December 31, 2004, after a long and determined battle against cancer. Peter was born in the Town of Mount Royal, Québec and attended Sir George Williams University (Concordia), where he earned his Bachelor of Commerce degree, and McGill University where he obtained his C.A. designation. He articled and worked at Price Waterhouse and entered industry with C.I.L. in Montreal, eventually moving with his family to Vancouver to work as C.F.O. with Chemetics International; after 20 wonderful years with Chemetics, Peter enjoyed a career in private consulting. Peter was involved in many business, professional, and community activities including F.E.I., I.A.F.E.I., Junior Achievement, and his church. While growing up in Montreal, Peter was also very active in his community and excelled in a variety of sports, particularly tennis, baseball, and hockey, at one time becoming property of the Montreal Canadiens. Peter was a great supporter of amateur sport, happily volunteering much of his time to coaching and refereeing. However, Peter's family was the most important thing in his life, and he was forever grateful for the many years of happiness with his wife and one true love, Madelyne, his three children, Heather (Terry), Craig (Jenny), and Matthew, and his precious grandchild, William, all of whom he cherished every day of his life. Peter was a man of great humour and integrity, with exceptional people skills. Amentor, peacemaker, and skilled mediator, Peter applied his talents passionately to everything from international business transactions to local volunteer work. Peter had a gift for seeing the best in everything and nurturing the best in everyone, and his guidance and strength will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him. A celebration of Peter's life will be held at St. Christopher's Anglican Church, 1068 Inglewood Avenue, West Vancouver on Friday, January 7th, 2004 at 12 noon with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Oncology Department of Lions Gate Hospital. The family expresses its sincere gratitude to Doctors Grant, Klimo, and Mutat for their many gifts, and to Peter's special circle of Friends that have been so supportive. Memories of Peter's life can be shared at: memoriesofpeter@shaw.ca

University football star killed in bar
Suspect turns himself in to Kingston police
By Katie ROOK, Staff Reporter
A man wanted in connection with the slaying of a Queen's University football star at a Kingston bar turned himself in early yesterday morning.
Justin SCHWIEG, a 23-year-old physical education student, died after he was stabbed at AJ's Hangar on Princess St. early Friday morning.
Police, who described the attack as unprovoked, said the suspect fled the scene when bar staff confronted him.
Around 2 a.m. Friday, Kingston police and ambulance were called to the dance bar, a popular destination frequented by youth from the Kingston area, Queen's University and the Royal Military College.
Earlier, chaos had erupted after the stabbing on the second floor as screaming patrons pushed and shoved each other to get their coats to quickly leave, witnesses: said.
"This is a tremendous loss to our community, all because of a vicious and cowardly act," said Kingston police Det. Sgt. Harley KELLAR, lead investigator.
SCHWIEG, who was a defensive back for the Queen's Golden Gaels, had worked as a doorman at the Brass Pub on Princess St. for just over a year.
"There are nothing but nice things I could say about him. Everyone looked up to him. He was someone I could really rely on, that's why I had him," said the pub's general manager Mike WIEBER.
"He was a hard-working kid, a great attitude not only at work, but life in general. He was an athlete. He was just on his way to finishing a university degree. He wanted to get into teaching and that's what he wanted to do after when he graduated. He would have been great at it."
In addition to going to school, playing football and holding a job, SCHWIEG coached youth football.
The Brass Pub bar staff, a tight-knit group, was in a state of shock and gathered yesterday to try to make sense of the tragedy, he said.
"I don't know if it has to do with we're getting a bigger population (in Kingston) or if the kids that are growing up these days are just getting more violent," he said.
A number of fundraisers are being planned and fellow employees say they would like to help the SCHWIEG family.
"I know in big cities like Toronto and Ottawa a lot of these incidents happen, but here in Kingston it doesn't happen," WIEBER said.
"It's really showing how much Kingston is changing. I just really think we should open our eyes here in Kingston and we're going to have to be more aware of things that are going on and maybe different security measures for getting into the bars."
This was Kingston's second homicide of the year.
Bruce Keno McKENZIE, 26, also known as Fuzzy or Fuzzy J, is charged with second-degree murder and possession of a weapon.
He is in custody and scheduled to appear in court today.
A 23-year-old Kingston man, Michael CRICTOBAL, was arrested by Toronto police and returned to Kingston where he was scheduled to appear in court today to face a charge of being an accessory after the fact to murder.

FREMONT, Marilyn Joan (née MacKENZIE)
Of Mississauga, Ontario, formerly of Winnipeg. It is with profound sadness that we announce Marilyn's passing in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 27, 2005. Marilyn, affectionately called "Aunty MiMi" by her nieces, will be forever cherished by her husband Chris FREMONT, her family in Winnipeg: sister Evelyn MACKENZIE-REID (Chuck REID), nieces Diana MacKENZIE, Donna NELSON and family, her beloved Aunt Ishbel in Scotland and long time friend Joseph RYAN of Mississauga. She was predeceased by her parents Daisy and Jack MacKENZIE, Winnipeg. Marilyn loved her family, Friends, nature, all animals, music and was proud of her Scottish heritage. Her love for nature and animals was projected with her caring for all creatures great and small. Marilyn delighted in her daily visits feeding and watching the antics of "her Black squirrels", birds and other creatures. During her courageous battle with cancer, Marilyn's concern was not for herself but for her "Chrissy" as she so fondly called him. Marilyn reached out her hand and touched your heart. Cancer may have taken her away, but cherished memories will always remain. Chris and family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Credit Valley Hospital, Mississauga for the care and compassion shown Marilyn. Marilyn requested cremation and no formal service. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, donations in Marilyn's memory may be made to the Mississauga Humane Society, 1050 Shawnmarr Rd., Mississauga, L5H 3V1 or the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 16586 Woodbine Ave., R.R.#3, Newmarket, L3Y 4W1.

SWARBRICK, Mavis Maxine (née JOYCE)
(December 10, 1924 to April 14, 2005)
It is with heavy hearts and deep sorrow that her family announces the passing of Mavis Maxine Joyce SWARBRICK. After a life of sickness and operations and then cancer in 1999, she passed away in Mount Sinai Hospital. Beloved wife of the late Harry SWARBRICK, March 11, 1923 to May 11, 1989. The second youngest daughter of the late Juanita Violet (SEDDON) and John JOYCE of Toronto. Mavis survived all of her siblings, brother James Henry "Marlow" JOYCE, and sisters "Wynne" Florence Amelia Joyce GILCHRIST, Juanita Valerie Joyce HARRIS, Joan Yvonne JOYCE, and Coral Dawn "Blossom" Joyce POLLOCK. Survived by her daughters Heather SWARBRICK and Valerie and son in law Ralph MacKENZIE. Special thanks to Louise ATKINS and Elka RUDOLPH for their visits and kindness, over the years. Manuel and Sandy who brought such happiness to her sister Blossom and herself, your visits and calls brightened her days. Thank you also to her Friends and neighbours in San Diego. I know that you were all sad to see her leave San Diego last summer, she was just as sad to leave and give up her home and happy memories there. Thank you to the doctors and nurses in the emergency department and those on the 12th floor of Mount Sinai Hospital for your kindness (Sunday April 10, 2005 to Thursday April 14, 2005.) Mavis' father was a fireman for the city of Toronto and she seemed to meet firemen wherever she went and at the end it was firemen who carried her to the ambulance that took her to the hospital. She felt comfort in that it was like her father was carrying her as he had so many times when she was a sick child. So, to those gentlemen and the paramedics - thank you. Before her marriage Mavis worked for the Steel Company of Canada to aid the war effort and was a long distance operator for Bell Canada. Mavis was a stay at home Mom, who always put her family first. She had a beautiful voice and loved to sing, especially to her family. Mavis was a kind and caring person who helped everyone in any way she could. She had a gift for writing beautiful letters to people to ease their sorrows or brighten their days. Many young people have called her Mom over the years. We are comforted in our sorrow knowing that she is with her beloved Harry and family. She will be missed by family and Friends who knew and loved her. As per her wishes there will be no funeral service. The cremated remains of Harry and Mavis will be laid to rest together in Riverside Cemetery. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Those wishing to, may make donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Cancer Society.

SCOTT, Roderick " Roy" Alexander, B.A., B.Ed., M.Ed.
(Retired Principal of the Etobicoke Board of Education) Passed away on Tuesday, June 28, 2005 at The McCall Centre, Toronto. Beloved husband of Betty (née BRAY) and loved father of Gordon (Shirley). Grandfather of Heather and Jennifer. Loving brother of Elsie WEISE of Oakville, Annabel (Joseph) FURROW of Los Alamitos, California and John A. (Monica) PATERSON of Mississauga and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents James and Barbara (née McKENZIE) SCOTT and his sister Florence. Born on May 17, 1918 in Toronto of Scottish immigrant parents, he attended Wilkinson Public School and Riverdale Collegiate. In 1940 he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and took his pilots training at Fort McLeod, Alberta prior to going overseas. In 1942 he was asked to join the Special Duties Squadron 138 to do low level flying in a Halifax aircraft on moonlit nights over occupied Europe, delivering spies, canisters of food, medicine and arms to the Resistance Fighters. On August 12, 1943, his plane with a crew of seven was shot down in Normandy, France. He and his dispatcher were uninjured and made contact with the Resistance Fighters. Eighty-five days later after being passed from safe house to safe house, walking over the Pyrenees and spending three weeks in a Spanish jail, he returned to Britain. That experience influenced the rest of his life. With a strong sense of gratitude for his survival, he came back home determined to make the most of his life. Following the war, he became a teacher, working for the Lakeshore Board and later for the Etobicoke Board, retiring after 22 years as a principal of an elementary school. Upon retirement, he pursued many interests. He was past master of the Anthony Sayer Lodge Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons No. 640 G.R.C., past principal of Victoria Chapter Royal Arch Masons No. 205 G.R.C., 33rd degree mason of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasons, and a member of the Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. He was past president and librarian for his air force group, the Royal Air Force Escaping Society. Belonging to a Speakers' Bureau, to raise funds for the Helpers (Resistance Fighters) of the R.A.F.E.S. he spoke at many schools and clubs across Ontario about his wartime experiences. Writing and editing a newsletter for the R.A.F.E.S. and for the masons was a challenging project for him. Gifted musically, he played the piano or organ for Riverdale Presbyterian Church and the degrees of the Scottish Rite. He enjoyed his many trailers and travelling across the country during summer vacation. He was past president of the Ontario Citation Trailer Club. He loved crossword puzzles, opera on a Saturday afternoon, playing his organ with his earphones on, and driving his big cars. He loved his country Canada and served it well. He loved the city of Toronto where he was born and lived most of his life. He loved his home, a refuge from life's troubles. Most of all he loved his family. We, your family will miss your smile, your laughter, your sharp wit, your eloquence of language, your cheerfulness and most of all your great love for each of us. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Islington and Kipling Aves.) from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Monday, July 4, 2005. Funeral Service in the Chapel Tuesday, July 5, 2005 at 11 o'clock. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the Parkinson Foundation of Canada would be appreciated by the family.
