I stood beside your bedside
My heart was crushed and sore
I prayed to God to spare you
Till I could do no more
In tears I watched you sinking
I watched you fade away
And though my heart was breaking
I knew you could not stay
You left behind some aching hearts
That love you most sincere
I never will forget you both.

There is a gift you cannot buy,

It's a gift of a wonderful mother and grandmother
Like the one we had in you.
The many things you did for us,
In your kind and loving way,
You gave us years of happiness,
No one can take away.
Nothing can be more beautiful
Then the memories we have of you,
To us you were someone
God must have thought so too.

Be so happy inside

With God we'll abide.

ROWE, Harold
Harold was born on Manitoulin Island December 21, 1921, son of Ted and Lily ROWE. He was later joined by a sister Edna and a brother Wilbert.
In 1942 Harold joined the Canadian Army, Second Division landing in France in 1944 to begin the fighting. He was wounded twice during the war. His brother Wilbert was killed and is buried in Holland. The war ended May 8, 1945, he arrived back in Canada, November 27, 1945 and was finally discharged January 21, 1946.
He bought a truck and a small farm outside Little Current. On February 21, 1950 he married Doreen STRINGER. A son, Garry, was born June 14, 1951 and Carol arrived September 1, 1952. In 1957 they moved to the 8th of Proton buying a farm from Lou BENSON.
They bought milk cows, converted the barn adding a bulk tank and began shipping milk. In 1967 they sold the farm and bought the New Century Restaurant from John and Irene MILLS. Harold started a job at the newly built factory Trim Trends, working in the day time at the factory and then switching to washing dishes at the restaurant in the evening. He continued at Trim Trends until his retirement in 1986.
He took flying lessons from Carl IRWIN and got his pilot's license which had been a dream of his for years. He bought a two-seater Cessna which he kept at Lorne ACHESON's until they built their present house, a hanger for the plane and a landing strip. He attended many fly-ins, looked for lost cattle, flew back and forth to the Manitoulin to visit his relatives and really enjoyed flying.
They sold the restaurant in 1969 and in 1970 Greg joined the family. Early '80s a boat replaced the plane and a trailer was placed at Victoria Harbour where they spent many weekends fishing and relaxing.
Harold had many hobbies. He loved to read, listen to music, and watch horse racing on T.V. He was an avid bird watcher and had many visitors at his feeders. He loved to travel and had taken many trips to the American West, Canadian West, East coast and Florida. He was overseas twice, once in 1984 with Doreen and Carol and again in 2004 with Allan SMITH. He visited Germany, Holland, France Belgium, Luxembourg and England. While there he visited his brother's grave and many other interesting places.
He took pride in his huge garden always trying to outsmart the birds and keep them away from his strawberries. He had a passion for teaching his children, their Friends and grandchildren to love the sport of fishing, a tradition that hopefully they will pass on to their children. Some days his line never got in the water as he was too busy taking off sunfish and small bass for everyone else. He went on many fishing trips with his sons and grand_sons. He loved to fish and even liked it better if he caught something. He was also a very good cook and was always looking for new recipes to try. You could always count on there being cookies, squares, donuts around for the grandchildren and the candy dish was always full.
He was a great Dad supporting and helping his children. He built his own home and helped build Garry's and Greg's homes. He was always there to answer any questions and offer advice. He spent endless hours helping at Lorne and Carol's farm, ploughing, cultivating, baling, drawing grain, fixing things and doing any little jobs that needed to be done. His truck could be seen daily spring and fall heading towards the farm. He was a cherished and special grandfather who was always there whether it be to babysit, or teach them to ride their first bike, or read a story or remove that sunfish from their hook. There were always some treats somewhere in the house for the grandchildren when they popped in after school.
Harold passed away peacefully at home on April 13, 2006, and will be sadly missed but lovingly remembered by his wife Doreen, son Gary and Barb, daughter Carol and Lorne, son Greg and Kelly, his grandchildren Don and Stacy ROWE, Theresa and Sandy YOUNG, Janette, Denise, Lori, Andrew, Kati RIDDELL, Connor and Meghan ROWE and great-grandchildren Avery, Jared and Jordon ROWE and Carter and Abigail YOUNG.
To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.

SMITH, Linda
In loving memory of a special sister and friend who passed away September 15, 2002.
You were the sunshine of our family
The one we could always depend on
Life without you for us
Will never be the same.
There's a link death cannot sever
Love and remembrance last forever.
Always in our hearts and prayers, Lois, Gladys, Judy and families.

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.

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.

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.

Our hearts can be empty because he is no longer with us, Or be full of the love he gave us. We can turn our backs on tomorrow and live in the past, Or look to tomorrow and live as he wished. We can cry and feel empty inside, Or smile and cherish all the memories that allow him to live on.

SCHEEL, Dorothy Florence (KNOTT)
Of Wilson Avenue, Delhi passed away peacefully at the London H.S.C., Victoria Hospital on Sunday, February 26, 2006 in her 79th year. Dorothy was a loving partner and wife for 62 years. She was born in Dorchester and married at 17. In childhood, she is remembered as the one always on the go and 78 years later it was still challenging to keep up to her. Dorothy was a devoted and loving mother to Jan and Michael who learned the meaning of determination, fun and integrity. She was a very proud grandmother of Abby and Kate, and was always delighted by their visits. To Dorothy's many dear Friends, her sense of fun and humour, her loyalty, common sense and honesty were always appreciated. With her sharp mind, intelligence, keen sense of business and financial affairs, she and Mike were successful in all they endeavoured. Her love of life showed up on the dance floor, playing a vigorous game of cribbage or euchre, creating a beautiful flower garden, spending a weekend with her sister Audrey, celebrating special occasions with joy, reading a favourite new book, creating delicious meals, spending time alone or taking a drive to Port Dover for a foot long hot dog and some people watching. After retirement one of Dorothy and Mike's favourite things was to jump into the car and go for a drive. It didn't matter where or for how long. But you can be sure it would always be Dorothy in the driver's seat! Throughout her 78 years, Dorothy touched the lives and hearts of many. She was deeply loved and will be deeply missed. Former Dorothy Florence KNOTT. Beloved wife of Michael SCHEEL. Loving mother of Jan SCHEEL (Margie COGILL) and the Late Michael SCHEEL Jr. (1999) and his wife Jane SCHEEL. Cherished grandmother of Abby and Kate SCHEEL. Dearest sister of Audrey McGUGAN and Jean SMITH (Verne.) Also survived by her sisters-in-law Dorothy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Lee), Anne SCHEEL, Julie SCHEEL and by her brother-in-law Fred MERZ (Evelyn) and several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her sisters Velma ROBBINS (Hap) and Millie WEYMOUTH (George,) her brother Allan KNOTT (Ann) and by her brothers-in-law John McGUGAN, John SCHEEL, Fritz SCHEEL (Peg) and Andrew SCHEEL. Friends may call at the Murphy Funeral Home, Delhi for visitation on Wednesday from 2: 00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Thursday, March 2nd at 11: 00 a.m. with Pastor Larry LABATT officiating.

Each day we look at the kids and see pieces of you within us.

SMITH, Teresa " The Dash" (1939-2005)
"From beginning to end, what matters most is the dash"
The dash represents all the time that you spent on earth and now only those who loved you know what that line is worth. It matters not, how much we own; the cars… the house… the cash, what matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash. So think about this long and hard… Are there things you'd like to change For you never know how much time is left, that can still be rearranged. If we could just slow down enough to consider what's true and real, and always try to understand the way other people feel, and be less quick to anger, and show appreciation more, and love the people in our lives like we've never loved before. If we treat each other with respect, and more often wear a smile… Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.
Mom, you always wore a smile and taught us so much.
We love and miss you Love always Terry, Darrell, Mat, Chris and Damian.

POWELL, Margaret Pearl (BABCOCK)
A teller of tales, a dreamer of dreams.
A fountain of fashion, a planner of schemes.
Could this be one person You think it untrue
Just look again dear, for that person was you!
Look back on your life -- take stock of the years,
And all you accomplished through laughter and tears.
Remember the children, how they took your hand
Remember the stories -- adventures you planned
How you nursed us in sickness and shared in our pain,
No thought of reward -- no question of gain.
You were a lady of grace, you stood out in a crowd,
Just count your achievements -- be thankful and proud!
You always looked to the future -- so much to be done,
The joys to be conquered -- love to be won!
Kept building your bridges -- planning those schemes,
Remember that you were our weaver of dreams.

Celebration of a life
Superlative after heartfelt superlative was used yesterday to describe the life and legacies of TAILOR/TAYLOR.
By Norman DE BONO and Jonathan SHER, Free Press Reporters, Mon., June 19, 2006
To Cal STILLER, it seemed strangely appropriate that J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR passed away on Father's Day weekend.
After all, it's as though London, its business and philanthropic communities, lost their father figure, he said yesterday.
"The community really looked to him as their father. He was the de facto boss of the business community," said STILLER, a pioneering transplant surgeon here.
"He did not wield that, but it is the way we saw him. "
TAILOR/TAYLOR, 99, died Saturday afternoon. Those paying tribute yesterday described a business giant who gave tirelessly to the community and gently pushed people to be better.
Mr. T., as many Friends called him, was a relentless optimist, said a Londoner who read to him several times a week.
Margi NASH said TAILOR/TAYLOR's recent favourites included Jessie's Journey and Unusual Heroes: Canada's Prime Ministers and Fathers of Confederation.
His optimism was exemplified in his response whenever anyone asked how he was doing. "His answer was always one of two things," NASH said. 'Never better' or 'Better now that you're here.'"
When NASH visited TAILOR/TAYLOR Friday, he was too weak to speak. Even so, when NASH asked him how he was, he mouthed, "Never better."
"A joy, a blessing and a privilege -- that's what it meant knowing him," NASH said through tears.
While he deserved the nickname "Mr. London," he was also a patriotic Canadian, hosting a Canada Day party every year in his backyard.
Daughter Lynn FLEMING/FLEMMING recalled how, in the 1950s, while he was a Canada Trust executive, TAILOR/TAYLOR would go to the basement at Christmas to share a drink with the maintenance workers.
"He didn't care who you were," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "He shopped at the A and P and bought Jane Parker pies for half-price. He would say, 'I am just a simple Prairie boy.' "
Don SMITH, founder of EllisDon Construction, said,He" left us an example and so many wonderful people have learned from him."
Equally at ease in the worlds of community, philanthropy and business, TAILOR/TAYLOR helped found the London Community Foundation, just as he laid the groundwork for the Robarts Research Institute and helped lead so many businesses by serving on their boards.
"He was a mentor to me," SMITH said. "I used to watch what he did and tried to follow his example. Often when I had to make a decision I thought, what would TAILOR/TAYLOR do? He was great help and guidance."
University of Western Ontario president Paul DAVENPORT described TAILOR/TAYLOR as "one of the great builders of postwar London."
TAILOR/TAYLOR, who served as University of Western Ontario chancellor, brought thousands of jobs to the city by helping lay the building blocks for a burgeoning business community. He was a lifelong proponent of education and research, DAVENPORT said.
"In addition to all his other accomplishments, J. Allyn was also a wonderful friend to so many people in this city. He could light up a room just by walking into it."
TAILOR/TAYLOR was also the only Londoner ever to head the national and provincial chambers of commerce simultaneously more than 35 years ago, said Gerry MacARTNEY, general manager of the London Chamber of Commerce.
"(It) is an inspiration to young leaders everywhere to look at a man like him. He led in a kind and calm way. Many barons of industry were tyrants, but TAILOR/TAYLOR had such a gentle approach. He was soft-spoken, but very focused."
Bill BRADY, who served on several boards with TAILOR/TAYLOR, said his long-time friend pushed people to become better than they thought they could be. Everyone who had any contact with TAILOR/TAYLOR learned from his example how to serve others, BRADY said.
STILLER added that others always looked to TAILOR/TAYLOR as a man with measured, solid ideas. "He was always quizzing me, asking me what was happening. He was always saying 'Tell me, tell me,' said STILLER.
"He had integrity with feet-on-the-ground pragmatism. He was a wise, wise man."
The first time Britta WINTHER spoke to TAILOR/TAYLOR, she was afraid he might throttle her. It was 1998 and TAILOR/TAYLOR had been a guest at the London Convention Centre to hear Prime Minister Jean Chretien at a fundraiser. A heavy back-drop curtain fell eight metres and TAILOR/TAYLOR disappeared beneath it.
WINTHER, who worked at the convention centre, phoned TAILOR/TAYLOR next day and braced herself. "As much as I tried to apologize, he would have none of it," she recalled.
Struck by his kindness, WINTHER invited him to lunch and the two struck up a Friendship.
"He was a modest, humble man who always wanted to talk about you. He made you feel great about yourself," she said.
Years before Fred GOSNELL became London's mayor, he was an unknown businessperson trying to get a start when he called TAILOR/TAYLOR's office and asked if they could meet.
TAILOR/TAYLOR saw him that very day, GOSNELL's son, Deputy Mayor Tom GOSNELL recalled.
"He treated my father the same as when he didn't even know him as he did when he was mayor.
GOSNELL said TAILOR/TAYLOR "made everyone in a room feel so important. He made us want to do so much more. And only after you left the room did you realize he had been the driving force."
TAILOR/TAYLOR was the last of a great generation of men that included publisher Walter Blackburn and brain surgeon Charles Drake, GOSNELL said. "They're a generation that left a legacy."
For the funeral, "we want to celebrate a life," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "It will be a family-focus only. He has had so many accolades, it is appropriate this be just a family service."
Funeral Arrangements
Visitation is at James A. Harris Funeral Home Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The service will take place at Saint_John the Evangelist Church at 280 Saint_James St. (at Wellington Street) Thursday at 11 a.m.
Anecdotes and quotes about and by J. Allyn TAILOR/TAYLOR
TAILOR/TAYLOR once said if he could change one moment of his life, it would be his birthdate. Until recently, he played weekly games of bridge, golf and billiards. "I'm enjoying life," he said, adding he would take as much of it as he could get.
"You should learn from any job you have, not only about human nature, but also about the basic principles of how to conduct yourself in the business world."
Reflecting on his favourite summer job, at a Winnipeg golf course in the 1920s
Mr. London is one name by which he was known. Many of London's power people called him Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR out of respect or Mr. T. out of affection. His Friends called him Allyn.
"I'm keenly aware of my own shortcomings. Do we have time to discuss them? No."
Long after retirement and into planning for the Robarts Research Institute, he would still convene meetings for 7: 30 a.m. When long-time (and younger) friend Bill BRADY protested, TAILOR/TAYLOR said, "Perhaps when I get to be your age, I'll want to sleep in, too."
"My father died at the age of 44 from a leaking (heart) valve, which… in those days was beyond medical science to deal with. Today (fixing it) is like filling a tooth, almost."
Reflecting on the genesis of his passion for funding medical research
TAILOR/TAYLOR called BRADY a few years ago to tell him a move was afoot to rename the Robarts Research Institute as the Queen Mother Elizabeth Research Institute. When BRADY protested, TAILOR/TAYLOR said: "April Fool's" and hung up.
When the historic TD Canada Trust building at Wellington and Dundas streets was named in his honour, TAILOR/TAYLOR cadged a kiss from Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO -- then five more kisses so the photographers could get it just right.

In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, who passed away five years ago today, July 8, 2001.
As time goes by without you,
And the days turn into years,
They hold a million memories,
And a thousand silent tears.
To us you were so special,
What more is there today,
Except to wish with all our hearts,
That you were here today.
To hear your voice and see your smile,
To sit with you and talk awhile,
To be together in the same old way,
Would be our greatest wish today.
Deep in our hearts you will always stay,
Loved and remembered everyday.
Deeply missed and forever loved by Doris, Penny, Rick and Families.

SMITH, Ralph William
In loving memory of Ralph William, who passed away one year ago July 21, 2005.
Don't think of him as gone away,
His journey's just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
This Earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting,
From the sorrows and the tears,
In a place of warmth and comfort,
Where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing,
That we could know today,
How nothing but our sadness,
Can really pass away.
And think of him as living,
In the hearts of those he touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost,
And he was loved so much.
Remembered by Lynda, Susan, Shawn, and families.

And the hills were hard to climb,
He put his arms around you,
And He lifted you to rest.

Nor shall you ever be,
I will always love and miss you,
And wish that you were here.
God has you in his keeping.

To every one of our Friends and neighbors who blessed us with gifts in the form of comforting words, prayers, cards, donations, food, and other acts of compassion, I sincerely thank you. You will all remain in my heart and in my prayers forever, and I offer my love and heartfelt gratitude. Dot's passing has left me with a void that will never be filled, but she wanted me to go on with my projects and find comfort in our many fond memories. I thank God for giving me an angel in Dottie, with whom I shared many years of love and happiness. I have been very fortunate to spend my life with her, she was one of a kind and I miss her deeply.

SMITH, Eileen Frances (née COOPER)
By Joan NOTENBOOM and Peter NOTENBOOM, Page A20
Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. Born October 12, 1919 in Dryden, Ontario Died September 11, 2005 in Kenora, Ontario, of cancer, aged 85.
In 1935, in small town Ontario, it was almost unheard of for a woman to drive a car. Eileen's father, Frank COOPER, however, insisted that she learn to drive as soon as she turned 16 and taught her in his Model A Ford. With a driver's licence came a sense of independence, and it was a quiet, self-reliant independence that defined the rest of Eileen's life.
Eileen left high school two months shy of graduation to work in Dryden's general store. She met James SMITH when she was 20. Her parents did not approve of their marrying as he was Catholic and she was Anglican, so the two eloped in 1940. Jim and Eileen had three children, two boys and a girl. The family left Dryden in 1958 and headed west to Kenora, where they opened Smith's Grocery. The store soon became a staple in the community, popular for their quality meats, homemade sausages and the special holiday tradition: Eileen's homemade Christmas pork pies.
As with any small family business, running Smith's Grocery meant long hours and a lot of hard work.. Eileen helped Jim in the store, all the while looking after the house and the three children.
When Jim died unexpectedly of a heart attack at 58, Eileen kept the business going for four more years, eventually selling it to her son in 1975. She continued to work part-time in the store for another 14 years, finally retiring in 1989.
In her later years, Eileen made up for her early lack of vacations, taking the time to enjoy life by travelling extensively. In November, 1977, Eileen and her 88-year-old mother flew to Churchill, Manitoba, to visit her daughter and family. Being an adventurous person, she was easily persuaded to view the polar bears feeding at the local garbage dump as well as take a flight in a two-seater airplane to view other northern wildlife.
In March of 1979 Eileen also travelled to the high arctic settlement of Chesterfield Inlet, where her daughter's family lived. While there she had the unique opportunity to crawl into and explore an igloo made by an Inuit elder.
As a senior, she loved playing the slots at the casinos and was more often lucky than not. A voracious reader, Eileen consumed several books a week. To keep her mind active, she plowed through crossword puzzle books and was a faithful fan of Jeopardy, yelling out the answers to the questions from her chair in the corner. Two other passions were watching The Weather Network and enjoying a good hockey game on Saturday night.
She learnt to knit at a young age, and helped her mother provide the Red Cross with countless pairs of warm socks for the soldiers in the Second World War. Later in life, she picked up her knitting needles once again and began supplying the needy with hats, scarves, mittens and socks. Her family and Friends also became grateful recipients of her knitted items.
In 1990 she purchased her first brand new car: a red Ford Escort. Ever thrifty, she would never consider paying for needless extra luxuries such as power steering or automatic transmission. Her only concession was an a.m. radio -- but only because it had already been installed.
When Eileen learned that she had cancer, she took the news in her usual no-nonsense manner, never shedding a tear, even through radiation and chemo treatments. She lived on her own until a week before her death, when the cancer finally forced her into the hospital. Eileen was a steady support for her children, a wealth of wisdom, a good listener, a warm heart and above all, the best of Moms.
Joan is Eileen's daughter and Peter her son-in-law.

TORRANCE, Robert Joseph (1922-2006)
Born May 22, 1922, in Edmonton, Alberta, and predeceased by his parents Jack and Bessie, as well as his only brother, Ken. Bob leaves to mourn, his dear wife of 61 years, Margaret Georgena SMITH of Queenston, Ontario, his sister-in-law Lois TORRANCE and family, extended families and Friends throughout Canada and the U.S.A. Active as a youth in sports, volunteerism, leadership and wartime service, Bob prepared for his distinguished Young Men's Christian Association career with a B.Comm. and B.S.W. (U of A) and M.S.W. (University of British Columbia). There followed Y postings in West Vancouver, Portland, Oregon, and the National Young Men's Christian Association, Toronto. After moving to Queenston, Ontario in 1974, he completed his PhD through the University of Toronto and Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. He continued after retirement to research and publish the National Young Men's Christian Association History Project - 1950 to 1984, and to serve on the Y's National Archives Committee. Bob's remarkable Y career as a builder of bridges and creator of linkages with whomever he met saw this quiet, self-effacing, humourous man, conferred with Companion of the Fellowship of Honour (Young Men's Christian Association, 1993). His lifelong example of faith in action as a member, activist, and lay person in the United Church of Canada, saw him build Friendships and liaisons while working and travelling in Canada, the United States, Europe, Russia and the middle east -- often remembering those he met with a snapshot memento or sharing a humbug from his candy pouch. St. Stephen's College, Edmonton, awarded Bob the D.D. Honouris Causa, in 1994. Bob worked to create change and move the world to a more inclusive society that honoured all. He died Saturday, April 15, 2006. The family thanks Doctor David Reimer, and staff at Chateau Gardens, Niagara-on-the-Lake, for the special care he received there, and is especially grateful for the compassion and support of Queenston neighbours, the Duc-Trianos and the Barratts. A celebration of Bob's life will be held in the Addison Hall, beside Saint Mark's Anglican Church, 41 Byron Street, Niagara-on-the-Lake, on Thursday, April 27, 2006, at 11 a.m. If desired, remembrances may be made to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Grandmother to Grandmother Fund (Africa), 260 Spadina, Suite 501, Toronto, Ontario M5T 2E4.

RAMPLEE- SMITH, Colin Martin
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Colin, whose active, gregarious and gracious view on life was foreshortened by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. He was in his 79th year. Beloved husband of Christine (Chris) STEWARD/STEWART/STUART and loving father to Sarah (Clark) and his step-daughters, Lynne (Stuart) and Paula (Edgar). Colin's loss to our individual lives is too painful to quantify. Poppa/Grandpa to eight grandchildren he was a Very Important Person. Magic fixer-upper of everything, he was our walking encyclopedia and next to indispensable. His in-laws, the Harley family, lovingly embraced this special man who earned their high esteem. A professional engineer, Colin graduated with honours from Cambridge University in 1951. His varied career spanned in diversity from the Avro Arrow aircraft to managing the installation of sophisticated technical equipment which enabled Canada's ice observers to help ships navigate ice congested waters from the Great Lakes to the high Arctic. Colin was one of the pioneers in a new era of monitoring sea ice in Canada and the equipment eventually found it's way into the modern satellite systems of today. He will be missed by his many good Friends of long standing who shared his life-long love of sports, academia and social pursuits. Former Environment Canada colleagues, M.S. Society volunteers/personnel and members of the U of T, Academy for Lifelong Learning also counted among his many interests and Friends. He spent much of his last three plus years at Scarborough Grace Hospital receiving very good care from super nurses who made his life bearable. Thanks too to the doctors and the Community Care Access Centre who showed much compassion by allowing Colin to spend some quality time at home, a priceless gift to him. A special thanks to the respiratory technicians who were constantly there for us. Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service and reception in celebration of Colin's life will be held on Tuesday, May 16, 2006 at 1: 00 p.m. in the chapel of Jerrett Funeral Home, 6191 Yonge Street, North York (2 lights south of Steeles).

PICKFORD, Mary, 1979 -- Died This Day
Actor-producer born Gladys Louise SMITH in Toronto on April 9, Born near what is now Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, she was baptized Gladys to please relatives. Her father was an alcoholic who abandoned his family in 1895 and died soon after. Her mother made a living as a seamstress and took in boarders. When Gladys was 7, a lodger persuaded her mother that the girl try for a part at the Princess Theatre on King Street, three blocks east of the present Princess of Wales theatre. Consequently, she played many roles and became a popular local child actress. She was soon joined by three siblings and the family troupe went on tour. In 1909, fed up with the theatre life after one Broadway success as Mary PICKFORD, she reluctantly auditioned for a silent movie, then seen as a lowly art form. She enjoyed the experience and went on to such a successful career that she is widely regarded as the first female film star. Unable to make the transition to talkies and seriously typecast, she retired from acting in 1933 and chose to go fully into producing. In 1919, she co-founded United Artists with Charles Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffith. Before her death, she petitioned Ottawa to restore her Canadian citizenship which she believed she had lost. As it turned out, she probably never lost her status and Ottawa obliging declared her a dual citizen.

BOYD, Jack Ross
Peacefully at Credit Valley Hospital, in his 83rd year, Jack passed away on Wednesday, June 21, 2006. He will be sadly missed by Mae (SMITH) his "Child bride" for the past 54 years, his three children Peter (Lorraine,) Mary-Jane MEDDICK (Scott,) Steven (Kathy) and nephew Kevin O'DONNELL (Cheryl.) He was the proud "Papa" of Kendra, Adam, Evan, Brock, Myles, Taylor, Christopher and Darcy, as well as Great-Uncle to Duncan and Liam. The youngest of Abel and Rachel BOYD's ten children, he was raised in the Annex area of Toronto. A Star athlete at Harbord Collegiate, he went on to serve Canada during World War 2 in the Army and the Air Force. Following the service he obtained his B.Ph.E at University of Toronto which led to his career in education. He taught at Long Branch, New Toronto, Soest (Germany), Thistletown and retired as the Principal at Vincent Massey Collegiate. His encore was as Principal at St. Albert's Collegiate, a private school. A long time member of Caledon Ski Club and an East Bay cottager, Jack loved life and introduced the joys of cottaging and skiing to many. His sense of humour was legendary, his last witticism: "Jack is dead, pontoon boat for sale." The family would like to thank the many health care professionals who cared for him. Jack will be cremated and a private service will be held later in Muskoka. Those who wish to help commemorate Jack's contributions and impact to all our lives are invited to join his family on Sunday, June 25th at Caledon Ski Club's West Hill Lodge, 17431 Mississauga Road, Belfountain.

SMITH, Donald Edward, M.C. and Bar, M.D., C.M., F.R.C.P.C.
(November 25, 1921-July 11, 2006)
Don grew up in Saint John, New Brunswick with his big brother Bill and his sister Jean. He served overseas in World War 2 in the infantry with the Carlton and York Regiment. He fought courageously in Italy and North-West Europe and was highly decorated for his valour and achievements, receiving the Military Cross as platoon commander and the Bar to the Military Cross as company commander, both in 1944. Just before the end of the War, at the age of 23, while flying to liberate Holland, Major SMITH lost his right leg below the knee and the sight in one eye. After the War, back in Saint John, Donald met Constance MURRAY and proposed to her on Valentine's Day 1946. Later that year, they were married and Donald and Connie moved to Montreal where Don attended medical school at McGill University. Don specialized in Internal Medicine, and then did a residency in London, England. In 1957, Don and Connie moved to Oshawa, Ontario where Don accepted a position at the Oshawa Clinic. Don and Connie promptly proceeded to have their four children. Donald practiced Internal Medicine in Oshawa for 34 years and served for a period as Chief of the Department of Internal Medicine at the Oshawa General Hospital (now Lakeridge Health Oshawa). In the early 1980's he established the first pulmonary function lab and service at the hospital. He retired in 1990 due to his own cardiac health problems. His beloved Connie passed away in 1998, and he missed her greatly. But he finished his days in his family home, which was very dear to him. Fittingly, Don passed away in the coronary care unit at the hospital where he spent so much time helping so many other people. Donald is survived by his sister Jean BAXTER, his brother Bill's wife Mary, and by Don's four children Rod and his wife Patsy, David and his wife Anne, Cathy and her husband Michael, and Edward and his ex-wife Jan, and his eight grandchildren, Emily, Claire, Laura, Hayley, Lysanne, Griffin, Alec, and Dylan. He will be greatly missed, but as one of his grandchildren said "at least Grampie will now be with Grammie". He led a life of great and selfless service to his fellow man. "At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them." There will be a visitation for Doctor Donald SMITH at the Armstrong Funeral Home, 124 King Street East, Oshawa (905-433-4711) on Friday July 14th from 5-8 p.m. Funeral Service will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations to the War Amps, (Scarborough, Ontario), or the Oshawa General Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

Osborne COLSON, Skating Coach (1916-2006)
Eccentric and prickly, the 'Jurassic Park' of skating won prewar national titles, directed Barbara Ann Scott's professional tour and coached a parade of top-notch competitors
By Beverley SMITH, Page S7
Toronto -- Osborne COLSON was the last of an era, an old figure-skating world of blueblood families, of impeccable manners and proper etiquette. "He stood alone in an era of figure skating that has long gone," said Toller CRANSTON. "He was the Jurassic Park of the Barbara Ann SCOTT era."
Mr. COLSON's father, Henry, was one of the founders of the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club, an institution that was like mecca for the skater who won the 1936 and 1937 Canadian men's championships.
His cousin, Cecil SMITH, finished second to Sonja Henie at the 1930 world championship. Mr. COLSON was a walking history book of figure skating. He lived it. He met Ms. Henie at a skating show in Toronto. He directed and choreographed Barbara Ann SCOTT's Canadian professional tour in the early 1950s. He took Donald JACKSON under his wing when he became a professional skater during the 1960s. "His great accomplishment was producing some of the most unique skaters in history," Mr. CRANSTON said. "He moulded the minds of splendidly artistic people who went on to even greater heights than he."
All this from a Toronto boy, who joined the Dominion Bank in 1935 as the youngest teller in its history. According to a Toronto Cricket Club history book, "both bank and his father thought Osborne was a good prospect for promotion with an ideal future in finance."
Mr. COLSON earned $32 a week. He took a temporary leave of absence when he landed a $500-a-week, 20-week contract as the star of Ice Follies. He never returned.
Through his Ice Follies adventure, he met and worked with Joan Crawford and Jimmy Stewart. Later, he was introduced to stars such as Boris Karloff, Mickey Rooney, Ronald Reagan and Judy Garland.
He was also one of the true eccentrics of the sport. Mr. COLSON rarely invited anyone to his Toronto apartment, not even his 60-year friend, Ellen BURKA, who had been Mr. CRANSTON's coach. He rarely let anyone inside his private life, but then maybe he was "a sphinx without a secret," Mr. CRANSTON said.
Ms. BURKA said skating was his life. He went to every little competition. He'd drive all over the city and teach at six different rinks every day until, at 75, he finally settled at the cricket club. For all that, he still worked at different rinks. This was risky business, because he was widely known as a rather erratic driver.
Except for his red cap, Mr. COLSON dressed conservatively. Mr. CRANSTON, however, believes he really wanted to be rather baroque. "He was always after my clothes. Many, many times I gave him things that he liked. COLSON didn't quite have the guts to be flamboyant, yet he admired it in others. He always wanted my coats."
Once, when Mr. COLSON and Ms. BURKA visited Mr. CRANSTON at his Toronto home, the coach took one look at the skating outfits in a closet, and began to try them on. "They were all his crazy costumes from the '70s -- all glitter," Ms. BURKA said.
He tried on a turquoise number, the most glittery of them all, waltzed into the room and began to dance. "We had a party," she said, laughing.
He had lots of frank opinions on many subjects. It was not something he developed in later life. The legendary coach Gus LUSSI taught Mr. COLSON for six years and once said: "He was a very well-behaved child with good discipline, although he was rather an opinionated boy. He had unique views and ideas about everything."
It's no surprise that Mr. CRANSTON calls him "madly eccentric." But he adds that the coach was really quite funny "as long as you were out of range." He could be prickly. Ms. BURKA calls him mean. Mr. CRANSTON refers to him as the "red-hot stinger." People feared him, wondering if they'd be next. Few escaped.
"At any second of the day or night, he could stick you with a [verbal] sword that would leave you flat on the ground," Mr. CRANSTON said. "One might say he was difficult."
Ms. BURKA referred to him as her "best friend and loving enemy."
"Everybody knew it. I got used to it," she said. "In the beginning, he would call me the most horrible names. I talked back to him, then we had a fight. Then, of course, we didn't look at each other and sat in the coffee shop back to back."
One of these fights lasted six months, another three months. Ms. BURKA also knew how to push his buttons. When she saw he was in a bad mood, she'd provoke him further. "Did I ever get it."
At the very least, Mr. COLSON kept her on her toes, she said. She always arrived at the rink well dressed with her hair perfectly coiffed, because if she didn't, "I got hell."
Finally, about 15 years ago, Mr. COLSON approached Ms. BURKA and told her: "Look, I think we are a little bit too old for this. Let's face each other again."
Obviously, he was one of a kind. "There can never be anything like him again," Mr. CRANSTON said. Yet, he always remained current. Ms. BURKA said he had the mind of a 25-year-old. And he had a Genghis Khan-like character that survived being booted out of the cricket club by a group that didn't understand his significance, according to Mr. CRANSTON. "It was like taking the goldfish out of the goldfish bowl. To a normal person, that would have been the death rattle. But COLSON rose from the ashes, went to the Granite Club and spawned this Patrick CHAN, this hot little thing."
The diamond in his crown was Sarah KAWAHARA, who studied with the coach when he set up the Banff Fine Arts skating school in 1960. Ms. KAWAHARA went on to become one of the great choreographers in the sport, winning an Emmy for her work on the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics and another for Scott Hamilton's television special, Upside Down. She also was responsible for Mr. Hamilton's successful skating career.
Ms. KAWAHARA, who took the red-eye flight last night from Los Angeles so she could attend the funeral today, said of Mr. COLSON: "He formed me. Mr. C showed me the path, and he was also the source of great inspiration and strength. He's responsible for everything I've done in my life and career. He was not just a skating teacher but a teacher of life."
Over the years, Ms. KAWAHARA and Mr. COLSON kept in touch at least every two weeks. "It's very difficult to know that I can't call him any more," she said.
Like Ms. KAWAHARA, Mr. COLSON's skaters always had "infinite class," Mr. CRANSTON said. "They were a cut above the others."
His work, Mr. CRANSTON said, should have been on the Broadway stage, not the ice rink. He's watched many COLSON products in skating shows and "my mouth would drop open," he said. "They were so great. That kind of skater cannot ever exist again because there aren't any other COLSONs to produce it."
Mr. COLSON's last master project was Patrick CHAN, a Toronto skater who glides over the ice with great speed and wonderful edges -- all COLSON hallmarks. Mr. COLSON predicted that Mr. CHAN, who is just 15, would make a splash at the 2010 Olympics and that he'd try to stick around to guide him there.
But all was not well with Mr. COLSON in the past year. He ended up in hospital for nine weeks with an infection after a youngster on a bicycle collided with him. Somehow, he talked his doctors into letting him out of the hospital for a weekend. Instead of resting, however, he headed to the Thornhill Summer Competition, where he coached Mr. CHAN from the boards. While he was in hospital, he designed the young skater's outfit, too.
The intrepid Mr. COLSON accompanied Mr. CHAN when he finished sixth at the world junior championship in Slovenia last March, but he was so frail that three doctors treated him there.
In the spring, he was involved in a car accident, breaking his collarbone and suffering head injuries. It proved to be his undoing. He underwent two surgeries to remove blood clots from his brain but then developed pneumonia.
The CHAN family was with him when he died. "Patrick said goodbye very close to his ears and vowed to skate his best for him," said his mother, Karen. "He knew Patrick had landed his quad toe."
It was a dismal day for Ms. BURKA, who at first glance thought Mr. COLSON an unusual character when she met him in 1952. For years, she had worked while facing him from the other side of the rink. They had a private joke, a pact in which they'd warn each other if their mouths had opened too wide. "It hit me hard that I cannot see him any more…. I had to cry.
"I enjoyed him all my life," she said. "It was fun to fight with him and to talk with him. Everybody is so boring. It is a big vacuum for me. I will miss him terribly."
Osborne COLSON was born in Toronto on March 31, 1916. The Canadian figure skating hall of fame member died in hospital in Toronto on Friday, July 14, 2006. He was 90. He is survived by his brother, James Hall COLSON.
