A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

GERTLER, Jeffrey Lee
January 18, 2005
After a recurrence of brain cancer, despite the best of care at the Clinique de Genolier, Switzerland, and the constant support of family, colleagues and Friends, his courage and morale undiminished, on January 18, 2005 he was taken from his wife, Ann Stewart GERTLER their sons Marin (fiancée Rocio LASTRAS) and Joshua; his parents, Maynard and Ann Straus GERTLER; brothers and sisters-in-law, Michael (JoAnn JAFFE,) Alfred (Kathryn MacRAE,) Franklin (Catherine OLIVER) and Edward (Mary-Jo LOW/LOWE/LOUGH;) sisters-in-law, Cynthia VON MAERESTETTEN and Rowena STEWARD/STEWART/STUART; mother-in-law, Thisbe STEWARD/STEWART/STUART nieces, Lisa and Jardena; nephews, Mark, Maxim, Will, Leo, Nicholas, John Nathaniel and Theo; beloved family member, Doris WINKLER and his extended family in Ottawa, Toronto, New York, California, England and Scotland who survive him to celebrate his 51 productive years. He was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, among the Plain People, where his college-teaching parents chose to farm. But his education was to begin at Darwin House, Cambridge, England (when they resumed research interrupted by service in the wartime administrations and army (Maynard) of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman) -- to be continued largely at St. George's School, Montreal. His further development was associated with training institutes in non-violence and peace research, fostered by the Canadian Peace Research Institute and sponsored by the Canadian Friends Service Committee and the Canadian National Commission of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. He was a "resource person" for the 1970 and 1971 high school peace workshops which took place at Grindstone Island on Big Rideau Lake, Portland, Ontario, the former summer home of Admiral Sir Charles Edmund KINGSMILL (first director of the Royal Canadian Navy) and his family, and loaned by his heirs for that purpose. Jeffrey's professional skills were acquired at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania, by a B.A., with emphasis on contemporary political economy, history and French (Université de Grenoble), by study at the Institute of Comparative International Law, Paris, on Regulation of International Business Transactions, by a J.D. at the University of San Diego, California, an LLM from Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., and by work with the Commonwealth Secretariat, London, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the Office of the United States Trade Representative, among others. A member of the California and District of Columbia bars and of the American Society for International Law, he entered his latest field of activity through applications to United Nations and United Nations-affiliated agencies. Invited to Geneva by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, he was employed by them in 1988, and stayed on when the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade evolved into the World Trade Organization in 1995. As Senior Counsellor in the Legal Affairs Division, he was active in the elaboration of dispute settlement procedures, in panels pertaining to the admission of countries, such as China, to the World Trade Organization, in work, duty travel and conferences on four continents, including university-sponsored speaking engagements on various aspects of globalization: human rights, labour, environment and living conditions, as well as trade. Jeffrey gravitated toward work in the public interest by an early internship with the Environmental Defense Fund of Washington, D.C., and by a spell as Special Assistant to the Rector of the United Nations University of Tokyo. Not incidentally, his two non-professional affiliations in 1988 at the time of joining the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade were with the Lawyers Alliance for Nuclear Arms Control, and Friends of the Earth. He delighted in sailing off Norfolk, England, on Lakes Ontario and Champlain, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Chesapeake with his wife Ann and boys, from their first home at Shady Side, near Annapolis, Maryland, and Lake Geneva (Léman). He loved life and knew well what to do with it, was an enthusiastic skiier and swimmer, an accomplished photographer, a keen gardener and family farmer, in Ontario, and an excellent cook. At various times he played the recorder, violin and guitar. Family meant the world to him, and his children were his greatest joy. Facing final illness, his supreme regret was the prospect that he might not be around to share in their lives, to support them, and to help celebrate their accomplishments. The warmest of farewells were given him at the Temple de Genolier above Lake Geneva, January 24, on a sunny day, emblazoned by fresh snow and invigorated by the mountain air. In addition to his wife, sons and brothers, some 150 Friends and colleagues were in attendance, many from the World Trade Organization, the United Nations family, the International School of Geneva, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Femmes Pour la Paix, and the International Peace Bureau. Following cremation, Jeffrey's remains will be interred near his home in Divonne les Bains, France.

Robert Francis BROWN
By Neil CAMPBELL, Thursday, August 25, 2005, Page A16
Veteran, innkeeper, husband, father. Born December 24, 1916, in Montreal. Died April 18 in Kingston, Ontario, of cancer, aged The only child of Warren and Winifred BROWN grew up in comfortable surroundings in Montreal, his father the president of Cockfield, Brown, the largest advertising agency in Canada at one time. He attended Lower Canada College at an early age, and later, St. Andrew's College. He sailed on the original Bluenose, and travelled across Canada with his mother, staying at the finest hotels. However, his childhood was at times a lonely one; his fondest memories were of summer visits with his grandmother in Belleville, Ontario
The Second World War cut short his studies at McGill University. He enlisted for active service with the City of Westmount Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force, and was soon in England. In September, 1940, his Tiger Moth went into a tailspin, hit high-tension wires (which actually saved his life by breaking the fall), and crashed. The official photographs of the crash show no sign of an airplane only twisted and scorched metal -- yet somehow he walked away. He served the rest of the war back in Canada, as flight lieutenant at several air force bases in the Maritimes and Ontario. After the war ended, he never flew again.
Returning to civilian life, he studied hotel management at Cornell University, and then gained experience at the Alpine Inn in the Laurentian mountains and the Mount Royal Hotel in Montreal. In 1950, he purchased an old summer estate on Lake Massawippi in North Hatley, Quebec It was architecturally reminiscent of George Washington's Mount Vernon; in an ironic twist, he named it Hovey Manor after a prominent Loyalist settler, and over the next three decades built it into one of Canada's pre-eminent country inns.
He was the ideal innkeeper, very sociable, and a great raconteur. And there were many stories: temperamental chefs, eccentric guests, electricity and plumbing crises, visits by the National Ski Team (Nancy Greene et al.), pranks conducted up and down the lake. He was only away from the hotel a handful of days during a period of 30 years. Over the years, he was also instrumental in promoting tourism in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.
After three decades, however, both the clientele and the political climate were changing; his Montreal of the Normandy Roof and Kon Tiki restaurants was fading. To his credit, and despite generous offers, he refused to sell the hotel to a man with foreign connections. He helped turn the tide; today, North Hatley, prosperous and with its traditions intact, is in his debt. In 1979, he sold Hovey to the son of a good friend, knowing that it would be in good hands, and it continues today as a five-star resort hotel.
Early in the war, he had married Virginia WOOD, a union that produced three children: Carol, Robert and Anne. Ultimately the marriage did not last and in middle-age he married Elizabeth McCRAE. After her early death, he married a third time, spending a happy final decade with Audrey Esler SAVAGE.
In retirement, he enjoyed his long daily walks, his boat, Canadian football, the History Channel and the news, cocktail parties in North Hatley, and maintaining his meticulous daily diary. With Elizabeth he travelled a little, largely in New England, and with Audrey he enjoyed splitting time between North Hatley and an apartment in Kingston, with lunches at Chez Piggy replete with mandatory martinis. After a vigorous and full life, and hardly sick a day of it, the final months were frustrating for him, laid low by the sudden onset of diabetes and pancreatic cancer.
There was an appropriate memorial service for him in North Hatley. It was a life worth celebrating. He enjoyed life and made the world a little more interesting.
Neil is Robert BROWN's son-in-law.

MacRAE, Margaret Elizabeth -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, November 19, 2005, Page M5
Driven by her love of stories, Margaret Elizabeth MacRAE helped spearhead the establishment of the libraries that are now seen in Toronto's elementary schools.
The daughter of a Presbyterian minister, she was offered a mission scholarship to the University of Western Ontario but opted for the University of Toronto, where her future husband was bound.
Before switching to library school, Ms. MacRAE studied English, which helped her in her library career, her son Charles said.
"You have to bring a certain sense of discrimination [to book selection]," Mr. MacRAE said. "Her house is still full of books. There's quite an extensive... collection of children's literature."
Ms. MacRAE joined the Toronto Public Library as it moved to stop maintaining outposts in local schools, and was given the task of helping the boards establish their own libraries.
She later joined her husband, professor Donald Alexander MacRAE, as a lecturer at the University of Toronto. She died October 10 after a long illness.

MacRAE, Janet M. " Jill" (née GRANT)
By Bill MacRAE and Susie MacRAE, Wednesday, November 23, 2005, Page A20
Mother, great-grandmother, great-aunt, matriarch. Born May 9, 1907, in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Died May 21 in Toronto, aged Janet M. GRANT was one of 10 children born to T. Geddes and Christiana GRANT. As the last surviving member of her family and generation, her passing marks the 115th anniversary of her parents' marriage.
Grandma left Trinidad in the early 1920s to attend the Halifax Ladies College. Upon graduation, she moved on to study piano and voice at the Toronto Conservatory of Music.
It was during this time that she met a dashing young man named Harry MacRAE and they were smitten with each other. After his graduation from medical school, they were married. They had four children, Ria Jean, Janet, Bill and Margaret, and eventually had 16 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.
They travelled, explored the world and filled their lives with culture and experience and were fortunate to have celebrated a remarkable 50 years of marriage together.
Harry passed away in 1983 and, for the next 22 years, Janet was the matriarch of the family. Over the years, she taught us the importance of family and extended family: Everyone was to feel like they belonged.
Grandma was actively involved in several Toronto cultural associations, including: the Women's Musical Club of Toronto; the Women's Art Association of Canada and the Toronto Heliconian Club. She had a passion for bridge and played competitively at the Granite Club until the age of 93. She was also a large part of Deer Park United Church and sang in the choir for many years.
What was so extraordinary about Grandma was her thirst for knowledge and awareness. She served as a great source of wisdom for her family. Grandma knew that keeping an open mind would allow her to enjoy and appreciate the changing times. She never stopped caring, whether it was about her family and their daily lives, current political events or even what score Mike Weir got in his current round at the Masters golf tournament. Her vast number of Friends with whom she corresponded around the world is testament to her loyalty and compassion.
She taught us that there were important things in life: respect, acceptance, humour and grace. And of course, let us not forget about good grammar and proper enunciation, as well as the ever-important good haircut.
She bore her last illness with courage, dying as she had lived, with grace and dignity.
Grandma's core was love, and her love manifested itself as kindness. She was always interested in people's welfare, not to pry into people's affairs and gossip, but out of genuine love and concern. Grandma always had a listening ear, an open heart and, if needed, a ready cheque-book.
In her 94th year, Grandma was asked to write the closing chapter in a book about Canadian-Caribbean relations with a focus on Trinidad. She concludes her account by lamenting the Trinidad of today, which is experiencing an epidemic of crime, corruption and racial tension, and is a society with broken relationships. What Grandma emphasized is that with forgiveness comes reconciliation. And with reconciliation comes healed relationships.
And that is what Grandma was all about: developing, healing and fostering relationships. This is what she passed on to her family. Sharing her words of wisdom, Grandma would tell us: Laugh, remember, be good to others, take care of others and cherish family.
Bill is Janet's son and Susie her granddaughter.

FRANKLIN, Cecil Hammond " Cec"
Peacefully, at Central Park Lodge, Toronto, on Thursday, January 27, 2005, in his 90th year. Loving and cherished husband of Ingrid. Predeceased by his wife Phyllis Lorraine (Peg), 1983, and daughter Sandra, 1987. Dear father of Rob and his wife Pinky. Loving grandfather of Signy, Ali and Tad. Sadly missed by cousin Jean WATSON. Fond uncle of Richard and Carol FRANKLIN, Keith and Carole McEWING, the Culley Clan, and many grandnieces and grandnephews. Cec was a treasured member of Ingrid's family, especially beloved by Edith HANSEN, her son Jason, daughter Nicole and friend Scott.
Graduating from Northern Secondary School during the Depression, Cec worked in Toronto before heading to Northern Quebec in pursuit of a more rewarding life in the mining industry. He worked for Prospectors Airway and Mining Corp. at various mines in the Abitibi and Temiscaming regions, eventually residing in Noranda, where he left employment to start his own entrepreneurial endeavours.
Cec started his first enterprise in 1951, selling new and used mining equipment. With early success, he moved the family to Toronto where he expanded his business to include a number of small manufacturing companies. Always entrepreneurial, he acquired an expanding number of interests in businesses and mines, both public and private, from coast to coast. At 75, having achieved success and satisfaction, he retired from active business life.
Throughout his life he was an active participant in community life, and served in many capacities. He was Chairman of the University of Guelph, a Governor of the Scarborough Grace Hospital, an active member of the Prospectors and Developers Association, and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. Cec loved the outdoors, and was a proud founding member of the Goodwood Hunting Club and an active member of the Nicholson's Island Club. He was a very generous host at the York, Granite and Rosedale Clubs. Always a proud Canadian, he enjoyed fishing and hunting, his cottages and farms. In pursuit of travelling the width and breadth of the country, he became a pilot at the age of 44.
A heartfelt thank you to the management and staff of every department of Thorncliffe Central Park Lodge, and especially to caregivers Emy MacRANES, Helen FRANCES, Josie GABUTEN and Macrina PONCE.
