McCUTCHEON, Ann Liisa
passed away Sunday, February 6, 2005 after a valiantly fought battle with cancer. Born February 19, 1968, beloved daughter of Dave and Irene, she will be deeply missed by her brothers George (and Ingrid), Matt (and Cathy), Tim (and Kelly), her nephews Gabriel, Carmine, Northrop, Keihgan, Luke, her niece Hannah, relatives in Canada, the United States, and Finland, and her devoted Friends and colleagues.
Ann inspired all who know her with her courage, optimism, humour, love, and grace. She never gave up, and she encouraged this same positive attitude from those around her.
Ann received her B.A. from University of British Columbia where she was sorority president. In 1999, she joined the Credential and Ethical Funds family. She devoted herself to her job and to the people she worked with as Client Relations Manager. She was a leader and friend to many.
Ann was a lifelong lover of the arts. In her youth, she read voraciously and took piano and ballet lessons. As a young adult, she performed in musicals and loved to travel. In her prime, she was a brilliant writer and lent her angelic soprano voice to the Gallery Singers, an early music choir.
Ann will be fondly remembered for her stylish shoes and matching handbags, and for her deep affection for chocolate. On a Sunday afternoon, she could be found walking the seawall with Friends or strolling through Granville Island.
Among her many volunteer activities, Ann enlisted Friends and colleagues to run in the Canadian Cancer Society's annual Relay for Life. "Annie's Bananies" was the top fundraising team in 2004, with a contribution of more than $22,000. Four "Bananies" teams from Credential and Ethical Funds, will run in this year's Relay for Life in memory of Ann.
Though tears of sadness flow today, Ann's memory will endure in the hearts of those who knew her. Her contagious smile and her zest for life will continue to inspire us to live our lives to the fullest and to express our affection for each other. That will be her legacy. Truly, the world has lost one of the best.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (register donations for Annie's relay teams online through links at www.bc.cancer.ca Relay for Life 2005) or to the Centre for Integrated Healing, Suite 200, 1330 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, V6H 4A6. Your donations are very much appreciated.
Thanks to the healthcare professionals at the British Columbia Cancer Agency, the Spine Unit at V.G.H., the G.F. Strong Rehab Centre and the Palliative Care Unit at V.G.H. Ann wrote down all your names in order to remember and give thanks for the wonderful care.
A memorial service will be held on Ann's birthday, February 19th, at 11 am at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1440 West 12th Avenue (at Hemlock), Vancouver, and a celebration of Ann's life will be held later in the day, from 6 to 11 pm at the False Creek Community Centre, 1318 Cartwright Street, Vancouver.
Expressions of remembrance can be posted at www.kearneyfs.com

Dottie WILSON
By David WILSON, Friday, November 25, 2005, Page A24
Hospice pioneer, stepmother, wife. Born September 16, 1923, in Aurora, Ontario Died June 1 in Bayside, New York of heart failure, aged 81.
Dottie WILSON fervently believed that the traditional practice of forcing terminally ill patients through a gauntlet of pain in their process of dying, in the unrealistic, faint hope of miraculous recovery was morally indefensible, unnecessary and barbaric. And so in 1974, she became captivated with the new field of hospice and palliative-care medicine, just then being introduced into Canada at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal by Dr. Balfour Mount.
She immersed herself in the hospice movement, becoming the administrator of the palliative care service at the Royal Victoria Hospital, North America's first hospital-based hospice. In 1979, we left Quebec and moved to Chevy Chase, Md., to work with Elm Services Inc., one of the largest U.S. health care consulting firms. As their hospice consultant, she worked internationally with local health care organizations, teaching and encouraging hospice development.
In 1982, after completing a feasibility study of a hospice for children at Saint Mary's Hospital for Children in Bayside, New York Dottie was retained to oversee its design, construction and startup. The facility became the first hospice for children in the world. After its completion, she remained as its director for five years until her retirement.
Born Dorothy Nettie CLARKE in Aurora, Ontario, to Caroline and Ernest CLARKE, she was the second of three children, between older sister Mary Louise and younger brother Douglas.
Many years ago, I asked her father what he thought was the most important thing about a sign for my new store. I was stunned when he answered "that it not fall down." Yet it was fundamental, down-to-earth and revealed his methodical, basic and practical way of thinking. I believe that her father instilled that way of looking at things into her.
After graduating with a degree in sociology from the University of Toronto in 1946, she worked for several years with Dr. Perry Culver at the Massachusetts General Hospital until she moved to Montreal in 1951, where she became a systems and procedures analyst for what was then the RCA Victor company. She then became Canada's first female management consultant with the Montreal accounting firm of Riddell, Stead, Graham and Hutchison.
In 1959, she married David WILSON, a Montreal businessman and later a psychoanalyst and group therapist in New York City. This marriage was her second.
Dottie is remembered for her skill in empowering the infant dreams of nascent startups in the health care field. Her expertise was honed in guiding the development of her husband's many startup projects.
After her retirement from Saint Mary's, Dottie helped Dr. Louis Ormont create the Center for Group Studies. Ironically, Dottie herself was forced into the gauntlet of severe pain by the development of an excruciating ulcer during a recent hospitalization for disorientation. She knew that common hospice protocols for wound care might have avoided this tragedy, so, after weeks of pointless suffering, and recognizing the hopelessness of her situation, she chose to enter a local hospice program. She knew that the hospice focus on the quality of life, rather than clinging to life at any cost, would help her win the relief she deserved.
She is survived by her husband David WILSON, her nephews Rory CAMERON, Gordon CAMERON and David CLARKE, and her nieces Susan CAMERON, Margaret McCUTCHEON, Wendy ZAROWSKI and Sandra RANA. Stepsons David Andrew WILSON, Daniel Thompson WILSON and Douglas S. WILSON will sorely miss her.
David is Dottie's husband.

Const. Bill McCUTCHEON: Leader of the band
Police officer led host of parades
At 6-foot-4, he had the carriage of a warrior
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For years he was the leader of the parade. Metro Toronto Police Pipe Band drum major Bill McCUTCHEON was at the head of the Santa Claus parades, Labour Day parades, Warrior Day parades, Grey Cup parades, the march past at the Police Games, the opening of the Royal Winter Fair and Kitchener-Waterloo's Oktoberfests.
At the annual Police Games held on summer nights at the Canadian National Exhibition, he led the march past; during the popular Musical Ride, the force's mounted unit did the charge straight at McCUTCHEON, standing two or three paces ahead of his band. The crowd always erupted as the horses stopped at what looked like just 10 metres before the man holding his ground with his mace held high.
He loved the spectacle more than they did.
Six-foot-4, he had the carriage of a warrior, the thrown-back head of a lion leading his pride whether he was leading the parade past the mayor of small town Ontario or Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at the storied Braemar Royal Highland Gathering of Scotland.
"He was a great big strapping fine-looking man," said Jocko THOMAS, the Star's legendary police reporter. "Millions saw him leading parades."
"He looked really sharp in front of the band," said former band piper John BREMNER. "He was a great guy to follow."
BREMNER and McCUTCHEON were young police officers in neighbouring downtown precincts when they signed up for a newly revived Metro Toronto Pipe and Drum Band in 1964. Originally started by Thomas ROSS in 1912, the marching band was disbanded in 1939, when Canada went to war. In a nod to its history and its original founder, the new police band chose the red Ross plaid as its official tartan.
Within months of joining, McCUTCHEON was elected drum major, responsible for not only leading the parade but also for the "dress, deportment and discipline," as BREMNER put it, of the 40 to 50 members.
"He was a stickler for punctuality," BREMNER remembered. "If Bill promised to be there at 2 p.m., we moved at 2 p.m."
McCUTCHEON retired from the band in 1975, when he retired from the police -- "we wished he could have stayed with us," said BREMNER -- but he kept marching at the head of the pack for the Ontario Royal Canadian Legion Pipes, Drums and Colours.
A year earlier, he had been asked to lead the Legion massed bands at Florida's New Year's Eve Rose Bowl parade, a huge honour at a time when the streets were painted white for the televised nighttime parade. He returned two more times: in 1976 and then in 1991.
In 1978, McCUTCHEON led the Ontario Royal Canadian Legion Pipes, Drums and Colours along the 10-kilometre route of the Tournament of Roses Parade, lined with 1.5 million cheering spectators in California. They made repeat appearances in 1981, 1989 (when McCUTCHEON had just undergone treatment for cancer of the colon six weeks before) and in 1994.
They marched the dusty main street of Tijuana, Mexico, and in the Cavalcade Parade down Princes St. in Edinburgh. They were cheered at the Punch Bowl and Hula Bowl in Hawaii. The first time they appeared at Braemar, they marched past the Duke of Fife because Queen Elizabeth was mourning the assassination of her uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, but on their third tour of Scotland in 1990, it was the royal couple on the stand.
A local newspaper photographer caught Prince Philip leaning forward and peering at McCUTCHEON's medals when he was presented to the pair.
"It was Bill's police service medal and police war veteran medal, that's what Philip was interested in knowing about," said McCUTCHEON's wife, Hilda.
But McCUTCHEON's favourite parade was always Toronto's Santa Claus Parade. No contest.
His daughters would be bursting with pride.
"We'd scream from the sidelines when we saw him," said Karen ZWARYCH. "He always looked straight ahead, but he always gave us a wink. We knew he knew we were there."
"I would say to all the people next to us 'That's my Dad,' " said Janice FATTORE.
Sometimes, if there was a break in a parade, Hilda McCUTCHEON would tell her daughters, "Bet that's your father."
He loved making an entrance, even though he insisted in a 1975 interview for a police magazine that he wasn't "the type of show-off who struts like a peacock."
McCUTCHEON had a cache of stories: the time the band was marching at the Greenwood Race Track and they turned left and he went straight ahead, or the times he missed the toss of the mace.
"It's the guys in the band who make it the hardest on you, like the piper who has threatened to buy me a baseball glove," he told the police magazine.
In his memoirs, McCUTCHEON described marching in Nathan Phillips Square to mark Police Week. He was doing "the walk" manoeuvre with his mace -- stabbing the ground to the left and right as he marched -- when the mace became embedded in a crack between the concrete slabs. He kept right on marching without his mace, then turned the startled band around and led them back where he retrieved the mace on his return.
During another Yonge St. Daffodil Day parade, the mace slipped out of his hand and bounced down the road. When he bent to retrieve it, his feather helmet fell off. The crowd gave him an ovation as he caught it.
The son of a streetcar driver, McCUTCHEON grew up in west Toronto. He always loved uniforms: he belonged to the Boys Brigade and, when he was 17, he lied about his age to enlist in the air force but never saw any overseas action, much to his disgust. A neighbour suggested he join the police. The neighbour was Jack ACKROYD who would go on to become Toronto's chief of police. He loved being a police officer, but it was when he joined the pipe band and later the policemen's chorus that he combined both his passions. Possessed of a spectacular rich bass voice, he had long sung at church minstrel shows and as a soloist in the choir at then Westmoreland United Church. During his 28 years with the force, he sang the national anthem at the Police Games and was the soloist at the annual police Remembrance Day ceremony at Yorkminster United Church.
He sang at both daughters' weddings and, always, around the house. Until last October, he sang with the Seranato Singers, a seniors singing group, stopping only because he was having trouble breathing. Having survived a bypass in 1978, colon cancer and an operation for an aneurism in 1998, he died January 20 at age 78 of melanoma.
At his funeral, members of the Toronto police chief's ceremonial unit were honorary guards and fellow police war veterans the pallbearers. A piper played behind the hearse and at the gravesite.
The family buried him with the mace he had carried for more than 40 years.
It was their way to ensure that he got to lead his last parade.
