O'NEAL, Barbara (née SWANN)
Passed away, peacefully, at Unitarian House in Ottawa on 15 March 2006, at the age of 82. Barbara was born in Chungking, China, the first-born child of the late Doctor and Mrs. H.F. SWANN, missionaries with the United Church of Canada. She leaves behind brother Neil SWANN, of Toronto, and sister Carol IRWIN, of Sun City, Arizona. She was the loving, caring mother of sons Deems, of Surrey British Columbia, and Brian, of Gatineau, Québec. Barbara was also the much loved mother-in-law of Maggie O'NEAL, and Marthe VARY. Barbara's grandchildren, Noah and Aidan of British Columbia, Simone of Alberta, and Arielle and Caroline, of Québec, were her pride and joy and will miss her dearly. Barbara also leaves behind a great-grand daughter, Lucy, who has inherited her joyful and determined spirit. Barbara had a lifelong involvement in the visual arts. She and her husband, the late John O'NEAL, ran an art gallery in rural Nova Scotia that provided exhibition space for many young artists at the beginning of their careers. When the family moved to Ottawa in 1961, Barbara found work at the National Gallery of Canada where she was able to share her profound understanding of, and love for, art and artists with visitors to the gallery. She derived special pleasure from showing the Gallery's collections to young children who were the source of unrestrained enthusiasm and opinion about art, willing to say what adults could, or would not, say. Barbara also had an endless fascination for stimulating ideas, good writing and books, and people. Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and the New Yorker magazine were valued companions, and she encountered people who interested her wherever she went. Her interest in people was rooted in compassion and a desire for social justice for all in retirement, she did volunteer work, and was a staunch supporter of the New Democratic Party. In the remaining years of her life, Barbara lived at Unitarian House where she developed a close Friendship with Ray COOPER, who will miss her dearly. The family is profoundly grateful to the staff of Unitarian House for the care and support they gave to Barbara, and to Ray for the love and Friendship he provided. Barbara's Friends are invited to join her family in celebrating her life at a memorial service to be held at the Unitarian Church, 30 Cleary Avenue, at 4 p.m., Sunday, March 26, 2006. In lieu of flowers, donations in Barbara's memory can be made to the National Gallery of Canada Foundation - 380 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, Ontario K1N 9N4. /Au lieu des fleurs, des dons à la mémoire de Barbara peuvent être envoyés à la Fondation du Musée des beaux-arts du Canada - 380 promenade Sussex, Ottawa (Ontario) K1N 9N4.

BOYD, Minnie Marian (née SWANTON)
Minnie Marian was born on April 15, 1921 to Emily and William SWANTON who resided on the East Back Line, Markdale. She was the younger sister to her brother George who was five years her senior. The four were a tight knit farming family who grew up with strong values and the hearty Grey county work ethic.
Minnie finished high school and then went off to teacher's college. She began her teaching career in a one room schoolhouse in Ceylon with grades one through eight; quite a challenge for a newly graduated young teacher. When she went to Toronto to teach, she tackled this job with determination and passion and enjoyed the many opportunities it presented.
It was during this time that she met her soul mate for life local Flesherton boy, George BOYD. They were married in July 1944 with the entire Boyd and Swanton family in attendance. George and Minnie had three children, Brenda, Randy and Wendy. Minnie was devoted to her family. Whether as a homemaker to a young family or as the accountant/receptionist at the family business, Boyd Bros. Motors, Minnie excelled. She also made time for many pursuits including sewing, painting and cooking. The family enjoyed great love and support from each other.
Minnie and George had a great enthusiasm for life. They both enjoyed impromptu parties with Friends and family and Minnie was always ready with lots of food and stories to tell. They had many great adventures through the family trips around the world and even day trips in the area. Minnie loved to dance and it was usually George and Minnie who were first up to "cut a rug" on the dance floor. George was the love of her life and the two were inseparable until almost three years ago when George passed away. Although she suffered greatly from heart-break and arthritis in the final years, Minnie never let the pain dampen her positive spirit.
The service celebrating Minnie's life took place on Wednesday, February 15 at the Fawcett Funeral Home in Flesherton. Minnie's daughter-in-law, Kim BOYD composed and delivered a wonderful tribute to Minnie. A second loving tribute was written by her daughter, Wendy and read by Reverend Martin GARNISS. The Boyd family appreciated the beautiful music of David FRIES, the religious message of Reverend Martin GARNISS and the excellent lunch served by the ladies of Flesherton's Saint John's United Church. Thanks are also extended to the pallbearers Don BRODIE, Jack DAVIS, Kevin DAY, Tyler DAY, Bob EDWARDS and Jim WILLIAMS.
Relatives and Friends will remember Minnie's generosity, kind spirit and keen sense of humour. She will be greatly missed by her children, Brenda, Randy and Wendy, her daughter-in-law Kim, her son-in-law Kevin, her six grandchildren, Lindsay, Ferris, Kelsey, Melanie, Tyler and Samantha and her loving relatives and Friends.
The Boyd family give thanks for Minnie's life and are comforted to know that she will once again be with her one true love, George. Minnie's spirit will remain in the family's hearts and minds forever.

SWANTON, Rob " Puckman"
In Loving Memory Of Our Son, Brother, Uncle and Nephew Rob "Puckman" SWANTON Who Left Us On July 22, 2005
"If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
We'd walk right up to heaven, and bring you home again.
Our hearts they seep with sadness, and secret tears do fall.
What it meant to lose you still weighs upon us all.
We remember all the happy times and the zest for life you had,
We call you often to your boys, "Rob, your Super Dad
You left us so suddenly, your thoughts, your dreams unknown,
But you left us with great memories, we are proud to call our own.
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good-bye,
You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why."
Lovingly remembered until we meet again
Mom, Dad, Lorri, Dean, Regan, Bryn, Uncle Ken and Aunt Veda

"Forever In My Heart"
In Loving Memory Of My Wonderful Husband "Rob SWANTON" Who was taken from us on July 22, 2005
"It broke my heart to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
Part of me went with you,
The day he took you home.
A million times I've thought of you,
A million times I've cried.
If loving could have saved you,
You never would have died.
I will always weep for the husband,
I loved, but could not keep."
You are always in my heart,

ROWNTREE, Gideon Torrance, D.D.S. (1923-2006)
A private family service and cremation have taken place at his request. Gid died at home with grace, after a long illness from colorectal cancer. He was a 'renaissance man' with many talents beside his professional life in dentistry and music. Music has been his second career, fostered first during his high school years at Humberside Collegiate. A lifetime member of the musician's union, he played in many bands and formed his own swing band. For over 60 years he played around Toronto and his second home in Muskoka. His favourite places for his own band were The Palais Royale in Toronto and Windermere House in Muskoka. His last musical job was for Valentine's Day of this year. He did most of his own band arrangements. He played many instruments and recorded all the parts of an arrangement. He produced over a dozen different CD's, some with 24 different parts. He enjoyed giving these to Friends and to guests at our cottage B&B in Muskoka. During his years at University of Toronto he was a director as well as a band leader for Dentantics, and played in the U. of T. band at football games. His university years were interrupted by World War 2 - first as a member of the 2nd Canadian Army Course at U. of T., then with the Royal Canadian Artillery overseas. After the war he returned to U. of T. to graduate in Dentistry in 1951. His dental career included several years as a clinical demonstrator at the Faculty of Dentistry. He will be remembered also for his many years of compassionate dental care at Runnymede Chronic Care Hospital. He maintained his own dental practice for over 30 years in Islington. He married Ruth, the girl across the road in 1948 and would have celebrated 58 years together this June. For Ruth, he will forever be the 'love of my life' and for his three dearly loved daughters, Lenore, Beth and Patricia, their memories will always be for a kind father who enjoyed building boats at the cottage and could fix anything. Gid was the younger son of the late Doctor Harold Lee ROWNTREE and Louise née SILVERTHORN) ROWNTREE. An older brother, Harold Silverthorn ROWNTREE died in his teen years in 1937 of scarlet fever. His family invites Friends to an afternoon of musical memories at Islington Golf and Country Club, on Sunday, April 23rd from 2-5 p.m., 45 Riverbank Drive, Islington.(turn west on Riverbank from Islington Ave, one block north of Dundas St.). Gid had hoped to have another of his cellar sessions, so his family would be pleased if some of his musical buddies felt free to join the trio for his last session. Although too many to name here, we wish to thank all the kind Friends, relatives, care workers and nurses, who helped us at the end, especially Doctor David SWARTZ, the home care palliative team, and Thornbrook Home Care. Rather than donations or flowers in Gid's memory, his family asks only that you support 'Live Music' at every opportunity. Gid's musical philosophy was 'Play for me, not at me, make me smile and tap my foot.'
