MULLIGAN, Hazel Violet (née LEE)
Hazel Violet (Vi) MULLIGAN died peacefully on Sunday September 17, 2006 at the Grey Bruce Health Services, Markdale Site in her 80th year.
Vi was born on July 14, 1927 to parents Charles and Mildred LEE. She was raised in the Dundalk area and after her marriage to Joe MULLIGAN resided at Victoria Corners. They built a new house in 1974 and moved to live at Lake Eugenia. After Joe died in 1985, Vi resided in the Flesherton-Markdale area until she became a resident of Grey Gables in March 2005 when failing health took away her independent living.
Vi was a stay-at-home mom caring for her eight children who survive her: Donna (Floyd) GRUMMETT, Linda McGRATH, Ivan MULLIGAN, Helen (Bill) MILLER, Kathy MULLIGAN, Don (Jayne) MULLIGAN, Patti (Brian) BATCHELOR, and Marlene (Glen) McINTYRE. 17 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren will miss her. A sister, Muriel ALLEN, brothers Gord and Glen LEE and a daughter-in-law, Barb MULLIGAN also survive her. Her brothers Jack, Bill and Ed and a son-in-law Ron McGRATH predeceased Vi.
The family received Friends at the May Funeral Home, Markdale on Tuesday September 19. Pat GRAHAM, a close family friend, prepared supper at the McIntyre residence for the family between visitations. A Mass of Christian burial was held at Saint_John's Roman Catholic Church, Glenelg, on Wednesday September 20th, The BLACK family sang during the Mass as Father Jiri MacENAUER officiated. The interment was in Saint_John's Cemetery.
The pallbearers were grand_sons Mark McGRATH, Christopher and Bradley MULLIGAN, Kyle BATCHELOR and Adam, Lee and Paul McINTYRE. The flower bearers were granddaughters Joe-Anne SMITH, Angela McGRATH, Shannon MULLIGAN, Marni GOSS, Shelley DILLMAN and Sandi BATCHELOR.
Granddaughter Lee-Anne TEETER read a "Grandma" poem. Jan POWELL, a special family friend, read a poem "Our Mom" written by Kathy MULLIGAN. Vi's favorite song, "The Rose" was played, then Sharon MULLIGAN said grace before the luncheon was served at the Glenelg Hall.
There is no doubt, a wonderful person was she
With a loving, caring nature, now set free
A wife, sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend
A great-grandma, grandma, and loving mom to the end.
Rest in Peace! Until we meet again.

MULLIGAN, Vi
Thanks, from the family, is what we can say
To the wonderful people, sending our way
Food, cards, flowers and donations did come
Showing your care in the loss of our mom.
Thanks to Doctor POWER and the hospital staff for their care
And all of Grey Gables, mom had resided there.
To Pat GRAHAM and the Glenelg ladies, the food did prepare
To the BLACK family who sang at the church during the service there,
To the May Funeral Home the way you do
At this difficult time, in guiding us through.
Everyone's support and kindness will be remembered for years to come
As will the treasured memories of Vi - a wonderful grandma and mom.

GRAHAM, Peter
On September 13, 2002, 4 years ago today,
You Peter GRAHAM at 14 were so needlessly and tragically taken away.
Our lives will never be the same,
But always in our hearts you do remain.
We miss your smile, your thoughtful caring ways,
The happy way you lived your days.
Many a time we ask the reason why,
But God will answer us in the Sweet Bye and Bye.
We know we will see you again, on that Golden Shore,
Where we will rejoice and live forever more.
- Always loved and never to be forgotten, by Grandma Elizabeth GRAHAM and with him in Heaven, Grandpa Peter GRAHAM.

GRAHAM, Peter
In loving memory of a dear cousin and nephew.
On one day, that day, Friday the 13th,
The world lost an angel,
Who had wandered down to earth,
Whether a father, a mother,
A sister, grandparent or a cousin,
A friend, a fellow,
Or perhaps even a stranger,
It seemed that he was missed by all,
And all still miss him, every day,
And still to this day,
But now, for now; and since that day,
A child is here with us
Named after a great bay,
She has healed and given life,
Where once there was not,
But a hole is still there,
And there it should remain,
And while life now exists
Where it once did not,
Let us try not to refrain,
From forgetting the spirit of the day,
And the spirit of Peter,
So please don't be sad,
For after all, being an angel,
He would have wanted it that way.
- Written by cousin Graham on behalf of Toby, Aunt Mary and Uncle Mike.

Man, 60, dies in early morning collision
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Tues., January 17, 2006
A Londoner was killed and a veteran trucker badly shaken yesterday in an early-morning crash in Thames Centre that police are investigating.
Joe ANTONIO, 60, was heading to work in Dorchester shortly before 6 a.m. yesterday when his van broadsided a tractor-trailer reversing into a driveway along Westchester Bourne, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said. ANTONIO, whose vehicle was trapped under the rig, died at the scene.
"He's a very good brother and a very good father," Adelina ANTONIO said of her brother, who had a 21-year-old stepson and two other children, ages 13 and 10. "We are trying to cope with the loss because it was so sudden."
Skip LACHARITY, the veteran trucker who was backing his tractor-trailer onto his Dorchester-area property, was unhurt in the crash but obviously upset by the tragedy in the pre-dawn darkness.
"I'm not so sure it's sunk in yet," said LACHARITY, 54, who had been delivering flowers to grocers in London and Sarnia. "It was over in a heartbeat. It was a tragic thing."
The 16-metre-long trailer was outfitted with reflective stripes and marker lights, Const. Doug GRAHAM said. It was dark at the time of the collision and investigators were still piecing together how it happened, he added.
ANTONIO had worked at the same Dorchester factory for about 25 years, his sister said, and often pledged to retire within four years.
He moved to Canada from the Philippines in the mid-1970s, she said.

Area woman dies after sport utility vehicle rolls on top of her
By John HERBERT, Free Press Reporter, Tues., February 7, 2006
A 35-year-old Nairn woman on her way home from work in London Monday was killed after her vehicle hit a patch of ice and rolled over into a ditch on Vanneck Road near Nine Mile Road in Middlesex Centre.
Ontario Provincial Police said Michelle HYMERS died when her sport utility vehicle rolled on top of her in the ditch.
Ontario Provincial Police said HYMERS was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle when it went out of control at about 5: 30 p.m.
"I'm sure she would have survived that collision had she worn a seat belt," Const. Doug GRAHAM said. "She was thrown out and her Cherokee rolled over. If she had been belted, I doubt there would have been anything more than minor injuries."
HYMERS is the fourth London and area motorist killed since Sunday in crashes blamed on poor weather conditions.
Sixteen-year-old Joanna PILARINOS and her mother, Christine FOSTER, 45, died Sunday afternoon whern their van was struck by a VIA train at a gated crossing in Thames Centre. The teenager was driving the vehicle. Iklas SARDOUM of Windsor died Saturday in a three-car crash on Bloomfield Road south of Chatham during high winds and snow.

Goodbye, Mr. London
To many Londoners, J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR was an icon of business and charity. To daughter Ann Fleming, he was a 'wonderful father.' We look back at his life and legacy on Pages C1, 2.
By Norman DE BONO, Free Press Reporter, Mon., June 19, 2006
He may have been a giant in London's business and philanthropic community, but to Ann FLEMING/FLEMMING, J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR "was a wonderful father," she said yesterday.
His health failing in the days before his death, TAILOR/TAYLOR and his family spent their last night together Friday, eating pizza, drinking beer. TAILOR/TAYLOR sat with them and a few close Friends, said FLEMING/FLEMMING, his daughter.
He died Saturday, "at home, with his family around him, peacefully, there was no pain," said FLEMING/FLEMMING.
"I held him and he gave me a great big smile."
TAILOR/TAYLOR is also survived by daughter Lynn GRAHAM of Ottawa and son John TAILOR/TAYLOR of Picton. His wife, Betty TAILOR/TAYLOR, died in 1999. The couple had been married 62 years.
"Even though he was busy and active, he loved his family," she said. "I have wonderful memories of my father."
Memories such as the days spent at the family cottage in Grand Bend, going to church on Sunday mornings, hiding candy at Easter, feeding animals in Springbank Park.
"I'll always remember the time at (an) exposition in Osaka, he ended up conducting an oom-pah-pah band," she recalled.
"He had such a sense of humour, he could be very silly at times."
TAILOR/TAYLOR's father died when he was 12.
"I think he gave to us what he missed growing up," she said. "He really valued his family life. He was a very loving father."
Mostly, she recalls how much TAILOR/TAYLOR loved their mother, Betty.
"He loved my mother, he always really loved her," she said.

LEBEDEW, Evelyn Louise (GRAHAM)
Passed away July 5th, at University Hospital, peacefully and with Ky and Deb by her side. Evelyn was born June 7, 1934 in London, Ontario. She is predeceased by her parents and husband, Paul LEBEDEW. She will be sadly missed by her children; Paul and Glenda WADDELL, Ky WADDELL and Deb ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, and Alexander and Corry LEBEDEW. Zack WADDELL will never forget the time spent together playing games and talking with his "Meme". Jan (Brad), Mike (Kim), and Chris (Natasha) have many years of laughter and fun to remember Evie by. Dawson LEBEDEW, and his sister Fiona (yet to be born), will learn of their Grandma through stories. Evelyn is survived by her siblings; Ken GRAHAM, Cheryl and Fred SMALL and Marrianne and Marvin MAGILL, John and Burt Ann WARD were special Friends, and their presence in her life these past few years was greatly celebrated by Evelyn. Evelyn spent most of her adult life in London and then Exeter where she raised her three children with unconditional love and support. During her time in Exeter, she started the first "Beavers" pack and served for many years as a leader. These were happy times for Evelyn and nothing pleased her more than watching children, her own and others enjoying themselves. She returned to London 15 years ago, when her first diagnosis of breast cancer was received. Thankfully, she had been symptom free since that early treatment, and only very recently began the battle again. She spent her last weeks at home, as was her wish. Her family offer sincere thanks to Doctor Irene COHEN for her skilled and compassionate care of Evelyn during these last weeks. The Community Care Access Centre team and the Victorian Order of Nurses palliative team were also instrumental in supporting her stay at home. Special thanks to University Hospital palliative team, especially Carolyn. Family and Friends will be received at the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North on Friday, July 7th from 3 p.m.-5 p.m. and 7 p.m.-9 p.m. The funeral service, officiated by The Rev. Sylvia BRIGHTWELL, will take place at Christ Anglican Church, 138 Hill Street, at Wellington, at 4: 30 p.m. on Saturday, July 8th. If so desired, rather than flowers, Evelyn has requested donations to Christ Anglican Church in her memory.

Woman dies, child spared
An autopsy will determine whether medical factors may have led to the death of Barbara WICKERSON, 73.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed., December 20, 2006
A two-vehicle crash claimed the life of a woman yesterday morning at Thirteen Mile and Wonderland roads. (Mike HENSEN, London Free Press)
Birr -- A London-area woman is dead after a two-vehicle crash near here yesterday that also affected a three-year-old girl.
Barbara WICKERSON, 73, was driving east along Thirteen Mile Road at 10 a.m. when her eastbound sport utility vehicle collided at Wonderland Road with a minivan heading south, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said.
An autopsy today will examine if medical factors may have contributed to the death of the Middlesex Centre woman, officers said at the scene, about seven kilometres north of London.
Her injuries, they noted, didn't appear severe enough to have been fatal.
Three generations of the same family were in the minivan, including Nikaia SIRE- RODRIGUES, 3, of Toronto. Her mother, Marcie SIRE, 30, and grandmother, Harolyn SIRE, 59, of Lucan, were hurt.
The toddler was properly strapped into a car seat and that likely saved her from injury, Ontario Provincial Police Const. Chris HUNTER said. "It's just great to see the compliance from parents" to the provincial car seat laws."
Long stretches of road around the rural intersection were closed for hours yesterday as Ontario Provincial Police investigators examined the scene.
The minivan, which had been heading south toward London, came to rest several metres from the road in an open field. The sport utility vehicle, with major front-left damage, ended up nearby.
No charges will be laid, Const. Doug GRAHAM said.

Born on January 21, 1932 in Cheshire, England, Alan graduated at age 19 from Nottingham University with a degree in Mining Engineering. During his final year at university, Alan applied for a student position at Sigma Gold Mine in Val D'Or, Quebec and left England in 1952 for Canada, a life long dream. After working with Sigma for three years, Alan went to Manitouwadge to work for Noranda Mines, Geco Division producing copper and zinc, where he worked as an underground surveyor, and later as a layout engineer. In 1958, he moved to Elliot Lake as the Planning Engineer for Rio Algom Mines - Milliken Division, and in 1959, on a blind date at the old Gatineau Club in the Ottawa /Hull area where Della Reese was performing, Alan met Diane McGLADE, affectionately known as Nicki, whom he married on June 25, 1960. It was at Milliken Mines in Elliot Lake that Alan met a number of people who would direct the course of his life and career - Dale and Norma HENDRICK, Mervyn UPHAM, George STENNING, Carl ASHENHURST, Ted CHEESEMAN, Dennis BRIDGER, Alex McNEILL, and many others. Alan moved quickly through the ranks at Milliken Mines holding the position of Chief Mining Engineer until the mine closed in 1964. Nicki and Alan then moved to Nenagh, Ireland in 1964 where he developed a lead-zinc mine as the Chief Engineer for Mogul of Ireland. He returned to Canada in 1966 to work as Chief Engineer at Newmont's Granduc Mines Ltd, and engineered an eleven-mile tunnel that had to be driven under intervening mountain ranges and glaciers. The tunnel then connected to a mountain road that had to be built to Stewart, the nearest port, 32 miles away. The Granduc project achieved engineering goals unprecedented in the history of mining. In 1970, Mervyn Upham, then president of Selco Mining Corporation, invited Alan to join him as Director of Engineering in Toronto. Known by many as the best mining engineer in the industry, he was given many global assignments including the development of the mine design in 1973 of the Newmont-Mount Isa Agnew nickel project in western Australia. Back in Canada, until his retirement in 1992 from Selco, later known as BHP Billiton, he engineered the development of the Quebec Selbaie copper zinc mine and the South Bay copper zinc mine in western Ontario. All of his mines made major contributions to the well being and the economics of their respective locations. Alan was excellent at any endeavour he took on whether it was curling, tennis, golf, bridge, snooker, toastmaster and drama clubs, model trains and woodworking. He was, in particular, a smiling connoisseur of good Scotch. Alan was a member of the Professional Engineers Association of Ontario, the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, the Engineer's Club of Toronto, and the Ontario Club. Although he excelled as a mining engineer, Alan's gift of recital, particularly of the Battle of Hastings, and numerous other epic poems was closely matched by his singing of Danny Boy, performed beautifully with granddaughter Emily TAILOR/TAYLOR, a mere three weeks before his death. Exceptionally bright, kind, modest, and witty, Alan not only led the world of engineering science in some of the largest and most ambitious mines around the world, he was at all times unfailingly devoted to his wife, his children, his grandchildren and all his family and Friends. Alan is survived by his devoted wife of 46 years, Diane (Nicki) LAW (née McGLADE,) his beloved daughters Elizabeth Ann (Robert VOGTLE;) Diane Millicent (Greg DAVIES,) and Nancy-Jane (Iain TAILOR/TAYLOR;) by grandchildren Mathew, Jennifer and Laura VOGTLE; Emily and Simon TAILOR/TAYLOR, and Sean DAVIES. Alan leaves behind his two brothers in England, John Geoffrey LAW and David Thomas LAW. He is dearly loved by his brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and 29 nieces and nephews. No one was blessed with more loyal or caring Friends than Alan, many spanning decades of memorable years with Alan and Nicki at the cottage in Muskoka or around the bridge table. The LAW family gratefully acknowledges the commitment and care delivered by cardiologist Dr. Anthony GRAHAM for over 25 years; and by the wonderful home care workers from the Etobicoke Community Care Access Centre. Funeral services will be held at St. Georges On-The-Hill, 4600 Dundas Street West on Tuesday, February 21, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, it was Alan's preference that any donations be directed to the St. Michael's Hospital Foundation, c/o Dr. Gordon Moe's Research Program in Congestive Heart Failure, 30 Bond Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5B 1W8

SCHUETT, Margaret Mary "Peggy" (née BURK/BURKE) (1921-2006)
Of Calgary, Alberta, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 20, 2006 at the age of 85 years. Peggy was born March 5, 1921 at Kingston, Ontario to Albert and Margaret (SULLIVAN) BURK/BURKE. One of five children, she grew up in a proud Irish Catholic family. During the war, Peggy worked in Ottawa and then returned to Kingston where she met her husband George. They married June 21, 1943 and crossed Canada many times, living in 17 cities and 5 provinces. An independent and resourceful woman, Peggy moved with their three children in advance of her husband to set up the new family home. She loved entertaining the many Friends and family with whom she and George shared their lives, but she treasured her quiet time also, creating beautiful needlework and tending her adored garden. When George retired, he and Peggy began travelling the country returning to places they loved and exploring the many parts of Canada, making new memories and new Friends along the way. After George passed away suddenly in 1978, Peggy went to work for ten years until she retired. Her greatest legacy was the inspiration she provided her family: an open-minded spirit, tireless perseverance, and enthusiasm and joy for life. Her greatest influence is most evident in the imaginations and independence of her three children, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Peggy was caring, humble, romantic, and accepting of everyone. There was never a person who met her who did not love her fun loving and generous spirit. Peggy smiled all the days of her life including her last in spite of the burden of Alzheimer's disease. She was a source of joy for everyone she knew. Family and Friends alike will remember her as 'Grandma Peggy' with a ready smile and a 'twinkle in her eye'. Full of fun and always enjoying a good laugh, Peggy brought life to every gathering. Peggy was so proud of her family and is survived by her two daughters, Margie SCHUETT of Toronto and Kate MUNOZ (John PRESTON) of Calgary by her son and daughter-in-law, Bob and Cheryl SCHUETT of Calgary by her six grandchildren, Jennifer and her husband Dick McDOUGALL, Karen (Chris GRAHAM,) John (Lindsey HODGSON) of Toronto, Rebecca (Ryan KALMACOFF,) Robbie and Megan; and by her four great-grandchildren, Robyn, Blake, Abby and Burke McDOUGALL. She is also survived by a brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Mary BURK/BURKE of Drumheller, their children, Julie, Dan and Mark (Natalie) and their families her niece Jackie; her nephew Hugh. Peggy was predeceased by her husband George SCHUETT in 1978; her two sisters, Evelyn (Jack) and Rita (Ben); and her brother Power (Connie). Relatives and Friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at McInnis and Holloway's Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.

THORNTON, Hugh Richard
Loving and adored father, kind and devoted husband to Bardie, Hugh passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family on October 25, 2006 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Born on February 4, 1929, in Woodstock, Ontario, to Jessie Robertson and Percy Sanford THORNTON, he was the youngest of eight children. Love and appreciation of music and fine art were always encouraged in the household by his mother, an accomplished pianist, and at an early age Hugh began to show great promise in drawing, illustrating and painting. He loved to talk about his days growing up in a large family where late-night chats would turn into early morning discussions of philosophy, science, the arts, and politics. The eight children loved to play pranks on each other, build water-glass orchestras and go-carts, read together and play music. Being in a large family he learned to assume responsibility early, and at age 11, he worked as a parcel boy at Loblaws in order to buy his first bike while later he took on summer jobs delivering ice and bread. The family moved to Toronto in 1938 to the High Park area where Hugh attended Keele St. Elementary School and Humberside Collegiate. At school he excelled in art, music, and literature. He met the love of his life, Barbara BRIGHAM, when she was 15 and he 16, and four years later, they were married while Hugh was attending the Ontario College of Art in the fine art program. He switched into the commercial program when he realized he would need to be able to support a family. During college, Hugh worked steady nights at Goodyear and Stelco, paying for all of his tuition. He won two scholarships and a bursary before he graduated in 1951 and continued to work at Goodyear upon graduation. Subsequently he was employed at Rabjohn Illustrators and after 1 year there, he went to Avro Aircraft where he quickly rose to department head. In 1955, after 3 years of top-secret illustration on the Arrow aircraft program, Hugh left to start his business in partnership as Industrial Art and Publicity Associates which subsequently became Thornton Hall Limited. As an employer, he was very fair and many times in the early days had to finance the payroll unbeknownst to his employees. Usually Hugh would be the last one to close the door, well into the early morning hours, as he built a successful career as illustrator, photographer, artist, copywriter, designer, and typographer. He was a rare one-stop talent that many envied and yet he was the most unassuming man to all who knew him. During the rare moments when he would take time for himself, he would relax with reading or playing Mendelssohn, Chopin, Beethoven and Bach piano pieces. Hugh and Bardie had to be thrifty in the early years, seldom living beyond their means, but still managing to always throw great parties with their many Friends and relatives. The door was always open at the Thornton household, laughter abounded, and visiting out-of-town relatives were never expected to stay in a hotel. In 1960, they bought a cottage on Buckhorn Lake and many happy weekends were spent fishing, water-skiing and boating. After Buckhorn was sold, they bought a cottage on Boshkung Lake north of Minden, Ontario, where Hugh loved to walk in the country with his artist's pad and camera in hand, creating ideas and sketches for some his most beautifully realized landscape paintings. Hugh provided a wonderful home in Don Mills for his wife and children, and loved to go on vacation with their Friends to sunny climes during the winters. He and Bardie instilled in their children strong family values of honesty, integrity, humility, and grace. Hugh was delighted to engage in conversation with his children and extended family and to be taken to task by his kids in discussions on politics or philosophy. The bantering and humour that went on around the table, even right up until the days before his passing, will be remembered and cherished by them forever. He was very proud of his children and their spouses and his adored grandchildren. Hugh was most proud of his accomplishments that occurred in his post-retirement years when he returned to painting. His many beautiful works of art adorn the halls of the family home, and the homes of Friends. He was eternally grateful to the Minden Hills Cultural Centre where his works were regularly shown each summer at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery and where, just in October, he was awarded 1st place in the People's Choice Award at the Members Show. He leaves his beloved wife of 56 years, Barbara BRIGHAM, and their loving children David LIVINGSTONE (Paula ZINOVICH) of Victoria, British Columbia, Gerry THORNTON (Stephen MOORE) of Toronto; and Andrew THORNTON (Sandra REYNOLDS) of Barrie, Ontario. Left to grieve for their adored Grandpa are Colin, Raeanne and Richard MOORE, and Jesse and Emma LIVINGSTONE. Hugh was predeceased by all seven of his siblings: Philip, Margaret (Bud BURROWS,) Bob (Phyllis, Helen,) Marion (Frank KENNEDY), Don (Mimi); Anne (Vince RUSSO), and Gerry. He was a wonderful uncle to Doctor Dan THORNTON (Donna,) Carol PAGNACCO (Ernie), Brian KENNEDY (Katie), Keith KENNEDY (Joan), Gail WILLIAMS (Ken,) Linda CLARY, the late Ted THORNTON, Andrea THORNTON, Philip RUSSO (Mary), Vicki BENOIT (Jerry), Eric Russo, Dianne THORNTON (Mark RECZKIEWICZ), Ian THORNTON (Lisa McLAUGHLIN) and Rob THORNTON. He is survived by his sisters-in-law Hilde THORNTON of Toronto (Dr. Harry HURWITZ,) Leonore THORNTON of Kingston, Jean CAWLEY of Vernon, British Columbia and children Tom, Cathy, and Joy Frances BRIGHAM (John DAVIES) of Victoria and children Becky, Tony, Judy, and Tim; along with brothers-in-law Joe BRIGHAM (Mary) of New Bern and son Phil; and Bill BRIGHAM (Pearl) of Mount Hope and children Cathy, Ruth, and Terry. He is lovingly remembered by dear cousins Kirk and Mary THORNTON of Orillia and Marilyn, Andrea, and Chrissie LEMIEUX of Toronto. He leaves many grand nieces and nephews and a great-grand niece. Deeply saddened are Friends from high school days, business and the art world, the cottages at Buckhorn and Boshkung Lakes, Don Mills and Aurora neighbours, as well as the many caregivers whose hearts were touched by his incredible courage and ceaseless wit and sense of humour. Special thanks goes to our primary care day nurse, Melissa, and primary care night nurse, Dan, our primary support worker, Jacquie, and most especially the Dies family, Bill, Joan, June, Rob, Paul, and Joanne for their generosity of spirit, Friendship, time, love, and personal care for Dad during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation (Cancer Program) would be appreciated. Address: 615 Davis Dr., Suite 304, Newmarket, Ontario. L3Y 2R2. Alternatively, donations may be made to the Hugh Thornton Award. This has been established by the Minden Hills Cultural Centre to be given to a special Grade 8 student at Archie Stouffer Elementary School in Minden who has shown an interest and/or potential in the arts. The address is: Hugh Thornton Award, c/o Dianne GRAHAM, Agnes Jamieson Gallery, 176 Bobcaygeon Road, Minden, Ontario. K0M 2K0 Cremation has taken place. A public memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 19, at Trinity Anglican Church, 79 Victoria St. in Aurora, Ontario at 2 p.m.

Bruce TRIGGER: Archaeologist, Anthropologist (1937-2006)
McGill University professor was one of Canada's great, yet uncelebrated, minds, writes Sandra MARTIN. Uninterested in self-promotion, he refused to rearrange history in order to make it agree with his theories
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Archaeologist, anthropologist and historian Bruce TRIGGER had a wide-ranging intellectual curiosity that roamed across civilizations from ancient Egyptians in Africa to the Huron Confederacy in Eastern Canada -- historical time frames and scholarly disciplines. He understood from an early age that complexity was an underlying factor in human behaviour, an insight that made him wary of ideological determinism and rigid methodological approaches to data.
"He was a dedicated Canadian patriot," said his McGill University colleague Michael Bisson. "He was extremely interested in Canada's history, but he was also interested in the history of inequality and that was the crucial thing that led him to look at early civilizations and at how social and political inequalities developed."
Of his two dozen books, three are considered masterpieces: The Children of Aataentsic: A History of the Huron People to 1660 A History of Archaeological Thought; and Understanding Early Civilizations: A Comparative Study.
Writing in Saturday Night magazine in 1986, journalist Boyce Richardson called Aataentsic "a work of such historical imagination and literary quality that TRIGGER deserves to rank with Harold Innis, Northrop Frye, and Marshall McLuhan -- Canadian academics known abroad for their critical imaginations and honoured at home for their contributions to Canadian self-knowledge." And yet, Mr. Richardson lamented, fully 10 years after the publication of Aataentsic, that it had sold only 1,500 copies.
One of those books was bought for Ron Williamson as a Christmas present from his parents. In 1976, he was an undergraduate at the University of Western Ontario and he already knew that he wanted to be an archaeologist and that he had to have Prof. TRIGGER's two-volume work. "It changed my life," he said yesterday. "There was no comprehensive treatment of that period that covered not only the Huron, but all of their allies and enemies in the Great Lakes Region… and gave voice to the people in that history in a way that was different from anything that came before. Reading TRIGGER brought that whole world alive to me." He was so stimulated that he went to McGill to study under Prof. TRIGGER.
What made Prof. TRIGGER different from almost anyone else as a teacher, a scholar and a human being is the thoroughness and integrity of his work, according to Ursula FRANKLIN, university professor emeritus at the University of Toronto. "He let the evidence speak, he didn't rearrange history to fit his theory. He had the incredible ability to step back and see what is a figment of somebody's wishful imagination and what is sustained by internally consistent facts," Prof. FRANKLIN said yesterday.
In contrast to some archaeologists, she said, Prof. TRIGGER had a great openness to different sources -- from science, folklore, oral history -- but he always evaluated them with rigour and integrity. He applied those same standards to every aspect of his life, as a scholar, teacher, husband and father. "If you gave me the choice of [naming] one intellectual, in the very best sense of the world, a citizen who used an exceptional intellect carefully, humbly and immensely effectively in Canada, I would say that's Bruce."
Bruce Graham TRIGGER was the only child of John and Elizabeth (neé GRAHAM) TRIGGER. His childhood was lonely because his father, an operator for Ontario Hydro, often worked the night shift and slept during the day, and his mother seemed preoccupied with her own interests. His life-long friend, set designer Maxine GRAHAM, remembered him as "a very precocious child" who could be "quite imperious." At 7, he had already absorbed The Book of Knowledge and was "reading the Bible for fun."
When not yet 10, he had an even more formative reading experience after having succumbed to chicken pox and infecting his father. While they were both recuperating, Mr. TRIGGER showed his son a lavishly illustrated book on ancient Egypt. "I was wonderstruck," Prof. TRIGGER recalled in Retrospection, an essay that he wrote for The Archaeology of Bruce Trigger: Theoretical Empiricism, a festschrift edited by Doctor Williamson and Prof. Bisson.
His early interest in Egyptian archaeology prompted an awareness of the history of his own province, which was abetted by occasional newspaper articles at the time about a dig at Sainte-Marie-among-the-Hurons and Ojibwa artifacts that were still turning up in local farmers' fields. Hydro transferred John TRIGGER to Saint Mary's, Ontario, and then to nearby Stratford, which meant that young Bruce had to switch schools and leave Friends behind, so he spent even more time metaphorically digging into ancient Egyptian and First Nations archaeology.
After high school, he enrolled in the University of Toronto in 1955, doing fieldwork in his final two summers with Norman Emerson. After graduating with a degree in anthropology in 1959, he headed to Yale University on a Woodrow Wilson fellowship to do a PhD in anthropology, along with two other undergraduates, Richard Pearson and George MacDonald, both of whom would also become significant scholars. As he noted many years later, "there was no alternative to going abroad to study." At the time, there was no established graduate program in anthropology in Canada, but he always intended to come back as soon as he could find a teaching job.
He joined the Pennsylvania-Yale Expedition to Nubia that was carrying out rescue anthropology before the area was flooded by the Aswan High Dam project. That led to his dissertation, which was published as History and Settlement in Lower Nubia in 1965. He was able to show that environmental conditions, technological innovations, trade and war were the four factors that accounted for changes in the size and location of settlements. This complex approach to understanding human behaviour became a trademark of his scholarly work.
He had become increasingly nostalgic for Canada during the years he spent living in what he later described as "imperial America," a society in which political debate was limited and "citizens almost unanimously agreed that their way of life was the most advanced and perfect in human history …" Determined to help reverse the brain drain, he ignored the advice of American academic colleagues who warned him that he would be in an academic backwater if he returned home, and accepted an appointment at McGill in 1964. That is where he stayed for the next four decades, despite many offers of distinguished chairs at illustrious institutions abroad. He preferred to build a department and a discipline in Canada rather than to chase international scholarly accolades.
At the McGill Faculty Club in the fall of 1965, he was introduced to Barbara WELCH, an English geographer who was teaching at the university. They were married in London in 1968 and subsequently had two daughters, Isabel, a particle physicist, and Rosalyn, a historical geographer. He was a very engaged father. Rosalyn remembers intense family discussions at the dinner table with people leaping up to get books to substantiate their arguments. "I think he went to a lot of trouble to ensure that my childhood, and that of my sister, was quite different from the one he had himself," said Ms. TRIGGER, who has "lots of happy memories" of her father coming home at midday from McGill to scoop up his daughters for impromptu lunches.
"He hired me in 1974," said Michael Bisson, chair of the department of anthropology at McGill. He was "absolutely wonderful" to work with, said Prof. Bisson, describing Prof. TRIGGER as a very hard working scholar, a huge contributor as a teacher and administrator, and a conciliator in disputatious situations. "He was quite a shy person, which is one of the reasons he didn't go to a lot of academic conferences and make presentations. He wasn't into self-promotion."
A dedicated teacher, Prof. TRIGGER taught mainly advanced courses, as befitted the leading theoretician and author of the definitive texts in the field. He used those books, Archaeological Thought and Early Civilizations, as the basis for two of his major courses. He was very interested in the synergy between undergraduate teaching and cutting-edge scholarship. Unlike many eminent scholars who have little time or patience for undergraduates, Prof. TRIGGER was "very accessible," said Prof. Bisson.
Prof. TRIGGER fell ill about a year ago and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November of 2005. The prognosis was brutal, but even while submitting to aggressive chemotherapy, Prof. TRIGGER continued his prodigious work load. It was almost as though he feared time was short and set his mind to completing unfinished tasks and embarking on new projects. He worked on the galleys of a revised edition of A History of Archaeological Thought, contributed to the festschrift in his honour, continued writing a book of essays on what he considered to be the problems of the political right, both globally and in Canada, began planning a new text on the history and archaeology of Egypt, and translated some Middle Egyptian texts.
He was also showered with awards, including the Order of Canada, which Governor-General Michaëlle Jean presented to him in his hospital room in December of 2005. Although obviously frail, he was well enough in June of this year to attend convocation, where McGill president Heather Munroe-Blum appointed him James McGill Professor Emeritus of the university.
His final decline was swift. "We were getting out archaeology books from the McGill library within days of his death," said his daughter Rosalyn. She and her fiancé had been planning their wedding for December 2, which her father insisted should go ahead, no matter what was happening with his health. Her sister Isabel came from Vancouver with her family, including her infant daughter. But it was not to be. The wedding went ahead without the father of the bride.
Bruce Graham TRIGGER was born in Preston, Ontario, on June 18, 1937. He died of cancer at the Montreal General Hospital on December 1, 2006. He was 69. He is survived by his wife, Barbara, daughters Isabel and Rosalyn, and by his grandchildren David and Madeleine.

TAILOR/TAYLOR, J. Allyn
By William BRADY, Page A24
Father, business leader, philanthropist. Born April 10, 1907, in Winnipeg. Died June 17 of natural causes at his home in London, Ontario, aged 99.
Modest, compassionate and always interested in others, Allyn became the man to go to when there was a community need. He chaired countless not-for-profit boards, served on many committees and raised millions of dollars. All this while managing a rapidly growing financial corporation.
Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR was respected for his business acumen and his leadership at Canada Trust, a career of 40 years culminating in his retirement as chairman in 1979. When he arrived in London, the company had only a few branches; when he stepped down, there were 200 doing millions in business annually. He once said, "When I got up each morning to go to work, I liked to say, 'God help the competition today.' " Still, he seemed to always make time for those who sought his advice, particularly young people.
He was modest and often self-deprecating: At a large community party celebrating his 95th birthday, he said: "I appreciate all these kudos but you seem to have confused longevity with ability."
His displeasure was evident on one occasion when someone addressed him as "Al." He frowned and in an aside to me, "That guy always calls me that, don't you ever do that!" A few days before, the university had conferred an honorary doctorate on him and he made it clear that while he was greatly honoured, he did not want to be addressed by the degree's honorific. I sent him this rhyme: "If you want to be his buddy, a very special pal / never call him Doctor and never, ever Al."
Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR frequently used long-forgotten expressions; phrases he no doubt had heard as a child growing up in Winnipeg. If someone displeased him or failed to follow through on a promise or commitment he'd say, "Well, I am disappointed, he certainly blotted his copybook." When at a board or committee meeting names were proposed for certain roles and he thought the suggested person was the right one to serve, we'd hear, "Oh my yes, she's a ten-strike."
Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR became impatient with any who took more time than he believed was necessary when they spoke. I was the target the day I rose to make a point; clearly he thought I was running overtime, "Well Mr. Brady has made a good point and while it took quite some time for him to do so, I believe it was time well spent."
Allyn and Betty TAILOR/TAYLOR were married for 62 years, until her death 1999. Their family: Ann FLEMING/FLEMMING of London, Lynn GRAHAM of Ottawa, John of Picton and seven grandchildren.

Hilary KILBOURN, 53: Creative to the end
Adored daughter of rebel alderman Bill KILBOURN
Sensitive painter 'could capture people' in her art
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
She was born into Toronto royalty, certainly its establishment, a statement that would not have made her wince because it honours her father.
And Hilary KILBOURN worshipped her father.
When Bill KILBOURN died in 1995, "it was as if the history of our lives was passing in front of us," Rosedale member of Parliament Bill GRAHAM said at the time. It meant that and more to KILBOURN's second child, who was so grief-stricken she was hospitalized for two days.
Passionate about Toronto, Bill KILBOURN was a rebel alderman on city council in the '70s, David Crombie's time, when Toronto had an exciting future and its politicians the courage to fight developers to preserve its past.
Founding chair of York University's humanities department, author of 14 books, with Friends and admirers in the usually disparate worlds of the arts, politics, academia and media, he was often dishevelled as he rode his bike through Toronto winter traffic without an overcoat. But at the same time, he helped stop the Spadina Expressway and the planned Pickering Airport.
He lived with his wife, Elizabeth, an Anglican minister, and five children in a rambling three-storey house in south Rosedale with a dining room painted a shocking black for a while, modern art on all the walls, wolf skins on the living room floor, singsongs round the piano, political discussions around the table and hockey on the rink in the backyard.
"It was magical," said Francesca Mallin PARKER, whose family lived in the next block and who became fast Friends with the KILBOURN sisters, Hilary and Philippa. "We were a gang of three."
Though she was the youngest, Hilary was their leader because she had the verve, the artistic passion and talent. There was always a painting on an easel set up in the bedroom and playroom on the third floor that she shared with her sister.
"Often her zeal for artistic expression was unable to be contained and spilled over onto the walls and ceilings of her house," recalled George HATHAWAY, who moved in across the street in 1976.
It was always understood within her family, and by her Friends, that Hilary was -- and was going to be -- an artist. "Right from the beginning she was always drawing -- princesses and witches. Dad kept a lot of them," said Philippa or Pippa, her sister. (There were also three sons: Nicholas, Timothy and Michael.)
Their father adored Hilary, taking her along to official functions if his wife was unavailable. An intellectual descended from prominent Toronto industrialists, he was thrilled to have an artist in his family. "They were very much soulmates," said Pippa.
Tall, lively and lovely -- with dimples, fair hair and an entourage Hilary was a sophisticated presence in the halls of Jarvis C.I., her poetry and art winning awards and filling the school magazine and yearbooks.
"I felt lucky that she accepted my Friendship. I was in awe of her," said writer Ann SILVERSIDES. "It was all rather exotic to me, a kind of J.D. Salinger-ish household full of brilliant individuals."
Activists, politicians, artists, people were often in their living room -- even Pierre Trudeau swung by on his first campaign to be prime minister.
Hilary thrived on the excitement on the home front as well as from her own social whirl of poetry readings and formal dances. There was every reason to believe a fine future lay ahead of her studying art and drama at York University's brand new fine arts program.
But Hilary's "incredibly fertile existence," as her sister described it, began to crumble when she was 22 and spending time in Findhorn Community, a religious retreat in Scotland. She came home and was hospitalized after experiencing her first episode of mania, now known as bipolar disorder.
It had been building for a while. Her friend Mallin PARKER remembers seeing "an episode of misery like I've never seen" when Hilary, in university, sank to the floor, weeping. "She was crying and hysterical and in such emotional pain that literally she couldn't stand."
Her illness dogged her the rest of her life as she fought it and fought to retain her creativity. She gained a lot of weight as a result of her medications. She was in and out of many hospitals and almost as many apartments until 1983, when her father got her a house on the Toronto Islands.
There she found her place. Her home was one of the original island houses, a blue cottage with purple trim and a bathtub out back on Wyandot Ave. Typically, there were usually two or three other people living there with her. She was subsisting on a government disability pension, but she felt blessed to have her island home and therefore obligated to share it.
In a community of characters, everybody knew her -- outgoing, friendly, bumming a cigarette, riding her bike, pointing her video camera anywhere she could record another moment of life in her community. In turn, they kept an eye out for her, knowing when she wasn't taking her medication, helping her during her ensuing mania and at times psychotic episodes.
In 1994, she produced a half-hour film with original music about life on the island, past and present. "She would come here, hands shaking, and video-film The old still photographs I had," said self-styled island archivist Albert FULTON. "And I was amazed at what a professional production it was."
Her father died January 4, 1995, three days before her film was aired on a local cable channel.
She was always sketching, but she was extraordinarily modest about her art, often giving it away because she valued it so little. Her portraits were vivid, passionate. Pippa KILBOURN says Hilary's best work was a larger-than-life portrait of their father looking like rebel leader William Lyon Mackenzie. "She could capture people. She had such sensitivity she could penetrate the personality," she said.
On Thursday, February 2, she died in her sleep. She was 53.
Her funeral wasn't held at the island's church, St. Andrew-by-the-Lake. Instead her mother, Pippa and brothers, and several hundred of her Friends gathered at St. James Cathedral. Hilary KILBOURN loved the island and that church, but it was too small and there was no doubt that the cathedral was really the appropriate place to say goodbye to her. For it was there that several hundred people had also gathered, back in 1995, to mourn the passing of her father.

KENNEDY, Kathleen Helen (née KRAFFT)
Age 87, passed away peacefully at her home April 8, 2006, with her three loving daughters by her side. Gracious and kind, lover of music, Kay has joined her beloved husband, Doug, in Heaven. Kay felt truly blessed by her large, close-knit family, which included four children: Sue ROGERS (Robert), Ottawa, John KENNEDY (Virginia BARNES,) Australia, Pat BOND (Robert,) Mississauga, and Janet GRAHAM (Brian) Grimsby. Her 10 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren were the joy and pride of her life. Born and raised in Cayuga, Ontario, Kay (Kathy), at the tender age of 16, was the organist at her beloved Church of Saint_John the Divine, and later went on to the University of Guelph where she and Doug met and then married soon after graduation. Typical of many young couples in the forties, Kay and Doug lived through the hardships of war and poverty as they began their young family. (Their first Thanksgiving dinner was a pigeon that Doug shot on the family farm!) With wisdom and devotion, Kay rose to the challenge of being a politician's wife in the years from 1967 to 1985, when Doug served as Conservative M.P.P. for Mississauga South. World travel was a significant part of their 63 rich and fulfilling years together, and included trips to countries such as Australia, Africa, and China. Many dear Friends and extended family reaped the benefits of her warm and generous hospitality demonstrated by her wonderful home-cooked meals, lots of laughter, and enjoyment of card games and scrabble. To the surprise of her family, in her last few years she took up playing pool. Kathleen lived her faith with dignity and by patient example, as she herself had been nurtured. A legacy for us all. The family would like to especially thank the staff at the Regency Retirement Home for their loving kindness. Kathleen had a real place in her heart for Moorelands Camp, www.moorelands.org 416-466-9987, The L'Arche Community, office@Iarchecanada.org 514-844-1661, and Primates World Relief and Development Fund, www.pwrdf.org/give/ 416-924-9192. A donation to any of the above organizations would honour her memory. Visitation will be at the Funeral Home of Skinner and Middlebrook, 128 Lakeshore Rd. E. (1 block west of Hurontario St.), Mississauga (parking off Ann St.) on Tuesday, April 11th from 7-9 p.m. There will be a Memorial Service at Trinity Anglican Church, 26 Stavebank Rd., Port Credit, Wednesday, April 12th, 2006 at 1: 00 p.m.
