CLENDENNING, Thomas Gerald, P.Eng.
Peacefully on Tuesday December 6, 2005 at Eagle Terrace in Newmarket, Ontario, surrounded by his wife and three children. Gerald was born July 26, 1918, and was the third of four sons of Campbell and Anna May (McNEELY) CLENDENNING, on a farm near Gananoque, Ontario. A graduate of Queen's University (1941), he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Corps of Engineers and served in the invasion of Italy and the liberation of the Netherlands. He married Evelyn Marie PRESTON of Portland, Ontario in England on November 14, 1943. After the war he joined Ontario Hydro and retired from its Research Division in 1983, having used his expertise in the science of concrete engineering to work on nuclear waste disposal, and as a private consultant, on the construction of the Toronto City Hall, Trent University and the C.N. Tower. He was a founding member of the Canadian Concrete Institute. Gerry enjoyed summers on Rideau Lake for many years. In 1972, the family relocated from Etobicoke to a minifarm near Barrie, Ontario, where they stayed for 27 years. After suffering a stroke, Gerry became a resident of Eagle Terrace in Newmarket, whose fine staff gave him warm and understanding care during his 5 years there. In retirement, his favourite pastimes included planting the kitchen garden, driving for the Red Cross, analyzing current events and the stock market, and partnering Evelyn at the bridge table. He loved limericks, peanuts and small dogs. His intellect, sense of humour and gentle nature will be fondly remembered by Evelyn, Anne (Ken ROBERTS) of King City, Bob (Christine) of Sudbury, and Linda (Colin CHALMERS) of Stony Plain, Alberta. He also leaves his brother Don (Carolyn) of San Jose, California; seven grandchildren, Will, Virginia and Mary Roberts, and Rob, James, Anna and Grace CLENDENNING; his nieces, nephews and cousins in the Clendenning, McNeely, Thomson and Spence families; and many beloved in-laws and Friends cherished over his 87 years. He was predeceased by his brothers Leonard (Thunder Bay) and Kenneth (La Jolla, California). Cremation has taken place and memorial arrangements to follow are entrusted to the Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, Newmarket (905-895-6631). The family would be thankful for donations in his memory to the Canadian Red Cross or to Queen's University in lieu of flowers.

Migrant workers killed by car while biking to Delhi in dark
By Monte SONNENBERG, Special to The Free Press
Otterville -- Investigators probing a collision near Delhi that killed two migrant workers and left a third with serious injuries are probing the role vehicle speed and the absence of bicycle reflectors may have played in the crash.
William BELL, 54, Desmond McNEIL, 39, and Fred SMITH, 35, were cycling on Highway 59 northwest of Delhi about 7: 50 p.m. Tuesday when they were hit from behind by a car, Norfolk Ontario Provincial Police said.
BELL and McNEIL were killed. SMITH was taken to London Health Sciences Centre.
BELL, McNEIL and SMITH were part of an eight-man crew from Jamaica working at the Kwan farm near Otterville.
"This morning, before they started their work day, we took some time and said some words about the injured and killed and had a moment of silence," Arthur KWAN said last night. "It's at a time like this when it really hits you because you realize they're not coming back. It was a total shock. I watched last night as they rode out the lane."
The men were riding toward Delhi in the dark on bicycles when they were hit by a car near the intersection of Mall Road, police said.
The car suffered extensive damage. Its driver, Chris MORRIS, 26, of Simcoe, was admitted to Norfolk General Hospital in Simcoe for observations after showing signs of distress, police said.
BELL had been employed on the Kwan farm for the last eight years. The farm near Otterville specializes in growing Chinese vegetables.
KWAN described BELL as a hard worker who was always seeking extra hours to support his large family.
"He was always a good-natured guy," he said. "You could always joke around with him. He was a dependable, go-to guy who did his best in the field."
McNEIL often spoke of a woman in Jamaica, but never shared her name, KWAN said.
He frequently rode into Delhi to call her because she was worried about him.
McNEIL went into Delhi Monday -- the day before he died -- and bought his sweetheart a fancy necklace. KWAN said McNEIL was likely cycling into Delhi to call her again when the collision occurred.
The KWAN family and the rest of the Jamaican crew travelled to London last night to check on SMITH, who is expected to recover.
The Jamaican Liaison Office took possession of the affected workers' belongings yesterday. They will be held in trust pending their return to next-of-kin. The liaison office is arranging to fly the bodies back to Jamaica.

Harry J. BOYLE, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Broadcaster: Farmer's son from southwestern Ontario shook the soil off his feet to become a radio and television pioneer who shaped Canada's air waves, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, With files from Canadian Press, Monday, January 24, 2005 - Page S6
Broadcaster, playwright, novelist, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation executive and a former Chair of the Canadian and Radio Television Commission, Harry J. BOYLE was a huge influence on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and television as a programmer, talent spotter (think Wayne and Shuster), broadcast boss and policy maker.
"He helped the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation become the link that held the country together," said novelist and radio producer Howard ENGEL. "The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, in my time [the 1950s-1970s] was like the railway a century earlier. It let people in Corner Brook know what was going on in Edmonton. He was very important that way in his writing and in his broadcasting."
Harry BOYLE was born on a farm in 1915 in southwestern Ontario. After graduating from Wingham High School and St. Jerome's College (now part of the University of Waterloo) he worked as a journalist for the Goderich Signal Star and a stringer for the London Free Press and the Globe and Mail.
He got his first job as a broadcaster in 1936 at Radio Station CKNX in Wingham, Ontario, the town later made famous as the birthplace and literary home of short-story writer Alice MUNRO. He left the radio station in 1941 and worked for a year at the Stratford Beacon-Herald before joining the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a farm commentator in 1942. He quickly rose to become a network supervisor of features and director of the National Farm Radio Forum.
"He literally had an understanding of broadcasting and life from the grass roots up because he was a farmer," said playwright and Toronto cultural maven Mavor MOORE who was a colleague at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio as far back as the 1940s. There were two Canadian programs that were way ahead of every other in the world in terms of the size of their collective audience audiences that would gather in halls and meeting places across the country to listen to radio, according to Mr. MOORE. One of them was the Citizen's Forum and the other was the Farm Forum under Mr. BOYLE's supervision.
"He was a real thinking farmer," said Mr. MOORE, "and a good deal deeper than people expected of the head of the farm dept." Those programs gave him an insight into the importance of broadcasting across the country, an understanding that he used "to turn radio into a medium where difficult and large topics could be tackled," said Mr. MOORE. With his "enquiring mind and his lively concern about big issues in society and communications" he was an "anomaly among the people starting radio and television, who were on the whole pretty low brow," according to Mr. MOORE.
He was an anomaly in other ways, too. A devout Irish Catholic who enjoyed a drink or three, Mr. BOYLE hated hypocrisy, top-down bureaucracies and micro-managing. The legendary broadcaster Max FERGUSON was a staff announcer at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in the late 1940s. By that time Mr. BOYLE was head of the Trans-Can network.
"I was the lowest paid announcer on staff," Mr. FERGUSON remembered yesterday, "Every year we got an annual increment, although we called it the annual excrement because it was about ten dollars a year." That year -- it was 1949 -- Mr. FERGUSON was told by a functionary that he wasn't going to get a raise at all, even though he was doing Rawhide, his satirical commentary in addition to his regular duties.
In the ensuing blow-up, Mr. FERGUSON either quit or was fired for insubordination, depending on who is telling the story. While Mr. FERGUSON was still seething, along came Mr. BOYLE with the suggestion that he should think about selling Rawhide to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on a freelance basis. "He was like the army sergeant interceding for the privates with the officers, except he did it between the announcers and the producers," said Mr. FERGUSON.
"He sold that Rawhide show to them [the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation]for about five times my salary and I was able to move back to Halifax, which I certainly preferred to Toronto. Things worked out beautifully and I owe it all to Harry BOYLE. He was the only one who would listen to you and go to bat for you with his bosses."
When the Dominion Network was established at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Mr. BOYLE created the feature show Assignment which reflected "homey" local stories from across Canada and his real triumph, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Wednesday Night, a mix of opera, musicals, classical and original plays and even documentaries that ran for 90 minutes or three hours depending on the strength of the program. Until then, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation schedule was divided into rigidly fixed and timed segments. What Mr. BOYLE did, to the delight of both listeners and freelance producers, was to make the process more flexible so that the quality of the program determined the schedule rather than the other way around. This was the era that is known as the "golden age" of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with actors and producers of the ilk of John Drainie and Lister Sinclair fusing listeners to their radios.
"He was the making of me," said retired radio producer Howard ENGEL, only one of many people Mr. BOYLE took a chance on as broadcasters. "I was a high-school teacher and not much enjoying it in the mid-1950s," he said, confessing that after a single pedagogical year in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, he had given it up and moved to Toronto and was looking for work. The two met over a drink at a crowded table in the Evereen, a pub across from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on Jarvis Street, just north of the Celebrity Club, a local watering hole that Mr. BOYLE was known to frequent.
He sent Mr. Engel off with a tape recorder and commissioned him to do a short documentary about the celebration of Chinese New Year in Toronto's Chinatown. "That meant I had to learn how to use a tape recorder, to edit tape and to do a mix," Mr. ENGEL said, confessing that he produced a 45 minute script that he had to boil down to about five minutes. He soon became a tape editor on Assignment with host Bill McNEIL.
Mr. BOYLE made the tape recorder an indispensable tool of broadcasting, said Mr. ENGEL, as essential as a typewriter was for print journalists at the time. In doing so, he ruffled the technicians union. He was in favour of unions, said Mr. ENGEL, but he thought this was new territory and in the same way that you wouldn't impose somebody sitting on the lap of a print journalist writing on a typewriter, he believed broadcast journalists should be allowed to go out and record sounds and voices.
Although Mr. BOYLE had a bad enough drinking problem that he would disappear from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for as much as a week at a time, Mr. ENGEL said he could always re-invent and resurrect both himself and his career with brilliant new programming ideas. "He was a multiple phoenix," said Mr. ENGEL, who was able to save himself by his own invention.
He could arouse envy as well as admiration in other broadcasters. Margaret LYONS, former vice-president English radio services for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, was a senior producer in public affairs and "a competitor for air time" in the 1960s. She remembers Mr. BOYLE as "very independent minded" with no patience for political or any other kind of "correctness." Saying that Mr. BOYLE was a great generalist who always wanted to poke fun at the establishment and against all forms of intellectual pretension, she said he was an iconoclast who gave legitimacy to an irreverence about public life and broadcasting bureaucracy. "His commonsensical approach was a good thing," she concluded.
He was always at loggerheads with the brass above him, said Mr. ENGLE and when he went to Ottawa he found himself in the same situation with his political bosses. In 1968, Mr. BOYLE was appointed vice chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission, the independent public authority that regulates and supervises broadcasting and telecommunications in Canada. He succeeded Pierre JUNEAU as chairman when Mr. JUNEAU resigned in 1975 and was later confirmed to the position in 1976.
A committed nationalist, Mr. BOYLE had a huge influence on the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission and the shaping of the 1968 broadcasting act, according to Joan Irwin a journalist who wrote about the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission for a number of print outlets at the time. 'Harry was better at cutting through crap than anybody I have ever known. He was absolutely real and he could see through anybody -- a terrific guy."
Mr. BOYLE left the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission after a year, having gained a reputation, along with Mr. JUNEAU, of safeguarding domestic ownership of Canada's broadcasting industry and creating a set of Canadian content quotas for television, among other initiatives.
In 1977, Mr. BOYLE presided over a committee of inquiry which examined national broadcasting shortly after the victory of the separatist Parti Quebecois victory in Quebec's 1976 election. The report was critical of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for failing to promote communications among the country's regional and linguistic communities, and expressed concern about the centralization of the system, the lack of programming from regions outside central Canada and the gap between French and English audiences.
Mr. BOYLE was also a newspaper columnist, an essayist, novelist and playwright. His novels, included, A Summer Burning (1964), With a Pinch of Sin (1966), Memories of a Catholic Boyhood (1973) and The Luck of the Irish (1975). His radio and stage plays including Strike, The Macdonalds of Oak Valley and The Inheritance. He won the Stephen Leacock award for humour and the John Drainie award.
Harry J. BOYLE was born on October 7, 1915 in St. Augustine, Ontario He died in Toronto on January 22, 2005. He was 89. He is survived by a son and a daughter.

Bob MacDOUGALL, Royal Canadian Air Force Flier And Priest 1924-2004
Shot down over the North Sea, he made a pact with God, accepted the German surrender in Denmark and then came home to take his vows and work among hardened criminals. Later, he starred on 100 Huntley Street as a evangelical priest
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, January 29, 2005 - Page S7
No one wants to be the last man killed in a war.
Hitler had just four days to live when Bob MacDOUGALL found himself floating in the dark in the North Sea. Flying Officer MacDOUGALL had about another 60 years to live, most of them as a Jesuit priest, but all he knew then was that the Second World War was almost over and his situation was desperate.
Minutes before, he had been the tail gunner in a Halifax bomber, carrying war material to the resistance in Denmark. The crew was with 644 Squadron and had left their base in Dorset in England at 10 p.m. on April 26, 1945. To remain undetected by German radar, the plane flew between 50 and 100 feet above the water. "When we hit the west coast of Jutland, we had to climb," remembered Father MacDOUGALL in an interview in 1988.
A short while after they made their drop, they were hit by fire from the ground. According to Sandy BARR, a pilot who now runs the Squadron's historical website, their pilot ditched the plane just off the coast. All six crew members -- one Canadian, three New Zealanders and two Brits -- made it out alive.
The frigid water numbed his legs. Later in life, vascular problems would confine him to a wheelchair. Father MacDOUGALL wasn't particularly religious then, but as he struggled in the water, he formulated a pact. Years later, he told his brother Ian that he had made a promise to God. "He said, 'Save me from this and I'll spend my life doing good.' He was saved, and he kept his promise," said Ian MacDOUGALL.
After a spell in the water, the crew was picked up by Danish fishermen. As soon as the crew members landed, they left the fishermen, since the Germans shot anyone who helped a downed airman. Father MacDOUGALL wandered for a day or so, following instructions from the fishermen to look for a church steeple, since there he might find a sympathetic minister.
"I came to a brook and crossed over, but failed to see a German sentry on the other side. He raised his gun and brought me to a halt," recounted Father MacDOUGALL. He and at least one other crew member were arrested and put in a prisoner of war camp. Their internment didn't last long. On May 7, 1945, far away at a schoolhouse in the French city of Rheims, senior representatives of Hitler's defeated forces signed a ceasefire and the war in Europe was over.
In Denmark, the Germans wanted to surrender, but not to the Russians, who were fast approaching from the East and had already occupied an offshore island. The German command resolved to surrender to a British or American officer, preferably a general or even a colonel. They scoured their prisoner of war camps and all they could come up with was a 21-year-old Canadian flying officer who only days before had been swimming about in the North Sea. His officer rank was the second-lowest in the Royal Canadian Air Force, equal to a lieutenant in the army.
And that is how Bob MacDOUGALL came to accept the surrender of the German garrison in Denmark. He was carried through the streets of Vejle, the town nearest his PoW camp, and hailed as a liberator. At that moment, no one was more surprised than he. A month later, the picture of the celebration found its way back home and the face and name of "F/O Robert MacDOUGALL of 107 Henry Street, Halifax," was splashed across the front page of the Halifax Chronicle.
Father MacDOUGALL grew up in Nova Scotia but was born in Saskatchewan, where his father worked as a bank manager. The family moved to Halifax when he was a tot. Ralph MacDOUGALL was a businessmen, and although not rich, he was successful enough to raise a brood of children and send them all to university. He was a Presbyterian but his wife May WEBB was a Roman Catholic, so young Bob went to Saint Thomas Aquinas elementary school and St. Patrick's high school.
His mother died when he was quite young and his father married Gertrude MacNEIL, also a Catholic. Together, they raised his six children, as well as two more the couple would have together.
Bob MacDOUGALL joined the Royal Canadian Air Force from high school. He was the third member of his family to join, and all three went overseas -- his brother Bill as a soldier in the army and his sister Betty as an army nurse. Like everyone who joined the air force, he hoped to be a pilot. Instead, he became a tail gunner, the most vulnerable crew position on a Second World War bomber.
On his return to England from Denmark, he visited his sister at the hospital where she worked. In their happiness, a rather raucous party developed during which "he wrecked my bicycle," she recalled.
When he reached Halifax, Bob MacDOUGALL decided to attend St. Mary's University, where he was active in organizing the hockey team and also played football. Mindful of his promise to God, he considered becoming a journalist and instead opted for the priesthood. In 1950, he joined the Jesuits, the largest of all Roman Catholic religious orders. Many of his Friends bet he wouldn't last.
"It was tough for a war veteran who had seen the world to settle into that routine," said Elmer MacGILLIVRAY, who attended the Jesuit Novitiate with Father MacDOUGALL. "He was older than everyone else and the rules were tough for him."
Life was lived in silence, from rising at 5: 30 a.m. to chapel at 5: 55 a.m., followed by prayer from 6 to 7 a.m., a mass, and then breakfast 30 minutes later. "You could ask for sugar, but otherwise it was total silence," said Mr. MacGILLIVRAY, who later gave up the priesthood.
Because of his age and experience, Bob MacDOUGALL was ordained after 11 years instead of the usual 13. One of his first assignments was Loyola High School in Montreal. There he coached sports teams and taught several subjects, including Latin.
In one session, the boys learned to conjugate scio, the verb to know. In Latin, the words "I know," "you know," "he knows" are scio, scis, scit, with the "c" pronounced as an "h." His 14-year-old pupils fell about laughing at the sound of scit. To help them get over it, Father MacDOUGALL had them conjugate the verb aloud 30 times. The giggles soon disappeared.
Father MacDOUGALL had a varied life. He taught in schools, worked in parishes, was the priest at a veterans hospital and even worked as a missionary in South America. For several years, he served as the chaplain at Stoney Mountain Penitentiary near Winnipeg. There, he started a choir and convinced parishes in the area that his singing prisoners posed no danger. One of those he convinced was Elmer MacGILLIVRAY, who was then the parish priest at St. Ignatius of Winnipeg.
"On one trip, he stopped and he lost one prisoner when he escaped for a while. He was embarrassed about that," said Mr. MacGILLIVRAY who now lives in Edmonton.
Working at the maximum-security jail was tough and Father MacDOUGALL sometimes found it depressing to deal with hardened criminals. Often dismissed by cynical and intractable convicts as just another man in a dog collar to offer them empty promises and meaningless rituals, Father MacDOUGALL came to believe he was a failure and that the promise he made on that black, North Sea night had come to nothing. He was convinced he was a catastrophe as a prison priest and had not done good or helped any in his congregation. The truth, of course, was quite different. Until he learned otherwise, he grappled with more immediate demons at Stoney Mountain and found himself drinking too much. In the end, Father MacDOUGALL succeeded in conquering both depression and alcohol.
Perhaps the most astounding part of Father MacDOUGALL's religious life was his born-again status as a Christian evangelist. That occurred while working in a parish north of San Diego, California. Afterward, he remained a Roman Catholic and a Jesuit but embraced the scripture, the words of the Bible, and became the only Roman Catholic priest to preach on 100 Huntley Street, the Toronto-based evangelical Christian television channel.
He appeared on hundreds of television shows and started his own Food for Life program. Many conventional Catholics found his evangelism shocking and lodged complaints, but he persisted. "There are Catholic evangelicals, and he served them," said Rev. Jacques MONET, the archivist at Jesuit headquarters in Toronto.
Father MacDOUGALL was unapologetic about his evangelism. "I know God wanted me to be an evangelist to the world -- my Roman Catholic world," he said. A natural performer, he appeared on television and at prayer meetings, sometimes in his Roman collar, other times in an open-necked shirt.
Even his brothers and sisters, all of them religious Catholics, were sometimes startled at what their brother was up to. For all that, they are intensely proud of the homeless mission he set up in Toronto.
"I think one of the highlights of his life was setting up the Good Shepherd Refuge on Queen Street East near Parliament [in Toronto]. He wanted to feed the street people, and he worked at gathering food from local restaurants to feed them" said his brother Ian. "He started it in the mid 1970s and it's still open."
He made good on that promise.
Robert Leonard MacDOUGALL was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan., on February 27, 1924. He died on December 26, 2004. He was 80. He is survived by his brother Ian of Brampton, Ontario, his brother Lorne of Truro, Nova Scotia, and by his sisters Bette COLFORD and Margaret BOUDREAU of Halifax.

McNEIL, Leonard -- Dispatch:
By Jordan PRESS, Saturday, April 16, 2005, Page M6
When Leonard McNEIL's niece went to visit him in Milton 20 years ago, he brought out one of his most prized possessions: a series of identical jars filled with screws.
But these weren't just any screws -- these were Robertson screws, a gift from the P.L. Robertson plant in Milton to Mr. McNEIL, who helped put the town on the map as the birthplace of the revolutionary Robertson screw and driver.
"You could tell he was never going to use all of them," his niece Carol says of his beloved screws.
Mr. McNEIL died of natural causes on March 22. He was 91.
He was born in 1913, near Bethany, Ontario, where he became a teacher in 1933. He later joined a church choir specifically to meet Helen PATTON, the choir's pianist, and the two married in 1943.
They moved to Milton in 1957 and Mr. McNEIL felt the town was neglecting its history, so in 1977 he helped found the Milton Historical Society, says Jim DILLS, the society's first president.
About nine years later, Mr. McNEIL spent months researching and petitioning the province to recognize Milton as the home of the Robertson screw and driver.
Invented in 1906, the square-socketed Robertson eliminated many of the inadequacies of the old slotted screw, which stripped easily and allowed the screwdriver to slip out. Using Robertson screws to build its early cars, Ford was able to reduce assembly damage and increase production time, saving an estimated two hours in the assembly of a vehicle.
On November 8, 1986, the province put a plaque in front of the P.L. Robertson plant on Bronte Street in Milton to recognize the town's link to industrial history.
For his efforts in preserving Milton's history, the city named a street after Mr. McNEIL some years later.

MORRISON, Sister Domitilla, S.O.S.
Sister Domitilla MORRISON, Sister of Service, died peacefully at Providence Healthcare, Scarborough, on May 23, 2005 in her 76th year of religious life. Born in Sydney, Nova Scotia on September 4, 1909, she was one of 7 children born to Joseph MORRISON and Mary MacKINNON. She was predeceased by her brothers, Jonathan Allen (Elizabeth), John James, Ronald Hugh and her sisters Sarah Ann MORRISON, Mary (Angus) MacDONALD and Mary Agnes (Hugh) MacNEIL. Entering the Sisters of Service in 1929, the Community, then seven years in existence, she was one of the pioneers who shaped and influenced its policies, values and traditions. Early assignments in the Immigration Ministry in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Toronto, Ontario, teaching in rural public schools in Manitoba and Catechetics in Saskatchewan prepared her for a unique assignment - a request to set up and administer a Religious Education Program in the diocese of Fargo, North Dakota, designed on the S.O.S. model. As Formation Director for the Community from 1945-1954, she influenced, challenged and prepared a generation of Sisters of Service who continue to look on her as a friend and mentor. On her retirement from active missions, she studied Library Science at the University of Manitoba. For the next twenty years as as Archivist and Librarian, she documented and catalogued the history and library resources of the Community and laid the foundation for the present archival holdings of the Sisters of Service. With her passing, the S.O.S. have lost a community icon, a wisdom figure, a reservoir of community history and dedicated servant of the Lord. She leaves to mourn in her passing her S.O.S. Friends across the country. Visitation will be held Wednesday, May 25, from 7 p.m. at La Salle Manor, 61 Fairfax Cr., Scarborough, Ontario (416-755-7818). Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated Thursday May 25 at 10: 30 a.m. in La Salle Manor chapel. Interment in Mt. Hope Cemetery. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home & Chapel, Toronto, Ontario.

MORRISON, Sister Domitilla, S.O.S.
Sister Domitilla MORRISON, Sister of Service, died peacefully at Providence Healthcare, Scarborough, on May 23, 2005 in her 76th year of religious life. Born in Sydney, Nova Scotia on September 4, 1909, she was one of 7 children born to Joseph MORRISON and Mary MacKINNON. She is predeceased by her brothers, Jonathan Allen (Elizabeth), John James, Ronald Hugh and her sisters Sarah Ann MORRISON, Mary (Angus) MacDONALD and Mary Agnes (Hugh) MacNEIL. Entering the Sisters of Service in 1929, the Community, then seven years in existence, she was one of the pioneers who shaped and influenced its policies, values and traditions. Early assignments in the Immigration Ministry in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Toronto, Ontario, teaching in rural public schools in Manitoba and Catechetics in Saskatchewan prepared her for a unique assignment - a request to set up and administer a Religious Education Program in the diocese of Fargo, North Dakota, modeled on the S.O.S. design. As Formation Director for the Community from 1945-1954, she influenced, challenged and prepared a generation of Sisters of Service who continue to look on her as a friend and mentor. On her retirement from active missions, she studied Library Science at the University of Manitoba. For the next twenty years as Archivist and Librarian, she documented and catalogued the history and library resources of the Community and laid the foundation for the present archival holdings of the Sisters of Service. With her passing, the S.O.S. have lost a community icon, a wisdom figure, a reservoir of community history and dedicated servant of the Lord. She leaves to mourn in her passing her S.O.S. Friends across the country. Visitation will be held Wednesday, May 25, from 7 p.m. at La Salle Manor, 61 Fairfax Cres., Scarborough, Ontario (416-755-7818). Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated Thursday, May 26 at 10: 30 a.m. in La Salle Manor chapel. Interment in Mt. Hope Cemetery. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home & Chapel, Toronto, Ontario.

LEAMY, Michael John " Jack"
Born in England in January, 1922, Uncle Jack passed away in the early evening of October 6, 2005 at Etobicoke General Hospital in Toronto, Ontario, with Friends and family reassuringly close to his side throughout his last days and hours. Jack came to Canada in the early 1960's, and after living in Whitehorse for a brief period, moved to Ontario. After many years of owning "Olde York Mews Books and Antiques" and "Leamy's Saw Sharpening Service" in Oakville, Jack began a new chapter in his life by earning undergraduate and master's degrees in East Asian Studies at York University. Upon completion of his studies, he accepted a teaching position in China, returning to Toronto several months after the Tiananmen Square protest of 1989. Jack LEAMY is survived by his daughter Hannah McDONALD, his grand_son Stuart, and his brother Vincent, sisters Pat and Mary, all of England and Wales, and numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives. He was predeceased by his brothers Joseph and Paul of England, and Frank of Toronto. Jack's path in life was uniquely his, and all who pause at his passing would be comforted to know that his journey was made richer by the deep, kind, and unwavering Friendship of his Friends of close to 40 years, Cam and Orva McNEIL of Toronto. It was Jack's wish that his remains be cremated, that there be no service, but that prayers be offered. On his behalf, we would like to thank the nurses at Etobicoke General's Palliative Care Unit their gracious compassion and skillful care is a salve to us all.
