OSBORNE, Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS)
Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS) OSBORNE passed away on January 1, 2006 in Grey Bruce Health Centre, Markdale, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.
Jean was born August 29, 1929 to Bert and Emily EDWARDS, who had just immigrated from England to Canada, finally landing in Dundalk. Jean grew up in Dundalk. She was an excellent student and athlete and graduated at a very young age. Then Jean went to work at the Bank of Commerce (C.I.B.C.) in Dundalk.
She met and married her life partner, Dallas OSBORNE, in June 1949, a marriage that lasted over 50 years. Through the years Jean and Dallas raised their four children, Lynda, Steve, Doug and Shelly, while Jean continued to work at the bank. Jean was a kind and caring mother as well as grandmother and then great-grandmother.
Nothing to do with family or at her work was too much for her to handle. She enjoyed the many family get-togethers at the cottage at Wasaga Beach.
On January 31, 1987, Jean officially retired after 32 faithful years at the bank. She had many, many Friends in the community.
Later, Jean and Dallas left Dundalk and moved to Barrie for a few short years, then they both retired to Brewsters Lake, Singhampton. After the passing of Dallas, Jean moved to Markdale. She enjoyed her time there, and met many new Friends.
Through the years Jean and Dallas attended services at Erskine Presbyterian Church, Mount Pleasant Missionary Church, and then later Jean attended as many services as she could at the Eugenia United Church.
Left to mourn Jean are her four children, Lynda (Hans) MUELLER, Steve (Brenda) OSBORNE, Doug (Delores) OSBORNE, and Shelly LAMBERT, ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Also brothers, Jack (Mary) EDWARDS and Peter (Elske) EDWARDS, as well as sisters-in-law Donna WILLIAMS and Marie (Barry) ADAM/ADAMS.
Funeral services were held at the McMillan Jack Funeral Home on Wednesday, January 4.
Patrick HALFERTY, Jean's friend and pastor for some years ably conducted the service that would have pleased Jean very much. Her daughter Lynda played the hymn "Hope" on the piano during the service.
The pallbearers were Chris OSBORNE, Gene MATTHEWS (grand_sons,) Doug OSBORNE, Cameron EDWARDS, Darryl GREEN (nephews,) and Hans MUELLER (son-in-law.) Flowerbearers were grandchildren, interment was held in Dundalk Cemetery following the service. A lovely luncheon was served to family and Friends at the Erskine Presbyterian Church by their ladies group.
The family once again, appreciated everyone's kind words, prayers and support during this difficult time. Mother is and will be truly missed by her family and Friends.

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.

CHESHIRE, Shirley Amelia (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With sadness at her passing and joy in her life, the family of Shirley Amelia CHESHIRE announce her death, after a long illness, on Friday, March 10, 2006. Shirley was born on June 20, 1918 in Oil Springs, Ontario, the fourth child of George THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Margaret WILLIAMS. She was predeceased by her older siblings, Russell (d.1909) and Florence LIMON (Archie) and is survived by her older brother, Kemp THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Joan) of Kitchener. In 1944, Shirley married John Robertson CHESHIRE of Wiarton, Ontario, then a lieutenant. Their loving partnership of 62 years gave great joy to them, their family and Friends. John gives thanks for the life of his dear wife. Shirley was a loving and proud mother to Robert and his wife, Rosamund DA GAMA, and to Pamela and her husband, Jim GALLAGHER. She was a doting grandma to Robert's children, Katie and David, and to Pamela's children, Kevin and Shannon. She is remembered with sweet affection by many nieces and nephews and a great circle of Friends. Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire National Treasurer. In Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, Nova Scotia, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario. Interment of Shirley's ashes will take place nearby, in Wiarton's Bayview Cemetery, this summer. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapter, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) from 2-4 p.m., and from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14. A celebration of Shirley's life will be held at Humber Valley United Church, 76 Anglesey Blvd., on Wednesday, March 15 at 11 a.m. Light refreshments will be served at the church, after the service. In lieu of flowers, gifts for work with Canadian youth may be entrusted to The National Chapter of Canada Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, 40 Orchard View Blvd, Suite 254, Toronto, Ontario, M4R 1B9

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.

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.

WILLIAMS, Orvel Stanley
His devoted family sadly announces the death of Orvel, on January 28, 2006, at the age of 88. His beloved wife and close companion, Della (née FOURNIER) is left to mourn, together with their three loving daughters Karen (Paul DZATKO,) Shelley (Scott BARCLAY,) and Heather (Marko NOGA,) as well as "the apples of his eye," his adored and adoring grandchildren, Kyle and Jillian NOGA. Orvel was a Torontonian, born-and-bred, who recalled his life with his four siblings, raised by their deserted mother during the Dirty Thirties, when times were hard and people were poor. He originally taught himself to play the guitar, progressed to lessons and soon began to play professionally with small groups of musicians in gigs around the city and in cottage country during the summer months. Before his marriage, he worked at Massey Harris and then became the owner of the BA Gasoline Station at Queen and Gladstone from 1947 to 1953. Playing tennis kept him in good shape and together with Della, they were avid supporters of their local tennis club (Orchard Heights) and played for many years. In fact, Orvel played right up to the age of 86. He was a gentle man and gentleman, a family man who had a long and fulfilling life centering around his family and Friends, who now have many fond memories to sustain them in their sorrow. "And I love you so" A Memorial Gathering in celebration of Orvel's Life will be held at a future date at The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, 1535 South Gateway Road, Mississauga (905) 602-1580.

Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire National Treasurer. In Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, Nova Scotia, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario. Interment of Shirley's ashes will take place nearby, in Wiarton's Bayview Cemetery, this summer. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14. A celebration of Shirley's life will be held at Humber Valley United Church, 76 Anglesey Blvd., on Wednesday, March 15 at 11 a.m. Light refreshments will be served at the church, after the service. In lieu of flowers, gifts for work with Canadian youth may be entrusted to The National Chapter of Canada Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, 40 Orchard View Blvd., Suite 254, Toronto, Ontario, M4R 1B9.

Eerie storm scenario takes two lives
Death followed woman to second park
By Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporter with files from Canadian Press
Cristina CLAYTON and her family had left the Sandbanks Provincial Park near Picton, Ontario, when they learned a 4-month-old Orangeville boy had been struck by a fallen tree and killed on Sunday.
One day later, in a creepy and cruel twist of fate, the Guelph mother herself would be killed by a toppled tree at another provincial campsite, this one 30 minutes northeast of Peterborough.
The flash storm late Monday night swept through Greater Toronto and parts of southern Ontario, leaving destruction in its wake. In Callander and Mattawa, the storm was so destructive, the mayors declared states of emergency.
The coincidence of Cristina's death, one day after the baby's death under similar circumstances, wasn't lost on the CLAYTON family.
"They had just come from the site where the baby had been killed," said an incredulous family member Cheryl WILLIAMS through tears. "They were one week at Sandbanks. It was a devastating thing. You think camping is a safe activity, but with all these freak storms coming up, you just never know."
The CLAYTONs had been avid campers, travelling from their Guelph home every summer to give their three children a full camping experience at Ontario's provincial parks.
"They did everything together. Every year, they camped," WILLIAMS said.
On a two-week excursion, the CLAYTONs had camped for a week at Sandbanks Provincial Park and had set up their tents at the Warsaw Caves Conservation area, just north of the Village of Warsaw in Douro-Dummer Township.
That visit was tragically cut short Monday night when a violent thunderstorm whipped up just before 11 p.m. and toppled a massive tree onto the family's tent trailer, killing Cristina instantly.
She was one of two people killed by thunderstorms that lashed the province Monday night.
Ontario Provincial Police also blamed a tree felled by the storm for the death of Jeff GRAY/GREY, 26, of Michigan, who had been in a tent in Algonquin Provincial Park, south of Kiosk, Ontario
GRAY/GREY was director of Camp Kennedy, an adventure camp for young people who were on a canoe trip.
A second person in the tent, Aaron LEBOVICK, 19, also of Michigan, was airlifted with serious injuries to North Bay District Hospital and transferred to Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto.
These kinds of accidents, like the one that killed the mother of three, are hard to prevent, the Ontario Provincial Police say.
"Someone asked me, 'How do you protect yourself from this?' and the truth is we can't recommend anything. It was really a freak," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Iain McEWAN.
John, the victim's 42-year-old husband, had tried valiantly to save her life.
When the storm hit suddenly, it sent the tree crashing down on the tent trailer. John kicked out the back of the trailer to escape, pulling 9-year-old Jordan with him. He then crawled beneath the trailer to get 10-year-old Vanessa and 12-year-old Justine. He called out for Cristina, but got no response.
"He couldn't get her because the tree was on top of the trailer," said John's sister, Cheryl WILLIAMS.
Her distraught husband was able to say only that "I loved her very much," before breaking down in tears.
At one point, more than 170,000 residents across Ontario were without power yesterday throughout northern and central Ontario and east into western Quebec.
By late afternoon, 90,000 customers remained without power and Hydro One, responsible for transmission lines, was warning people that those in the hardest-hit areas, including North Bay, New Liskeard, Sudbury, Manitoulin Island, Peterborough and Newmarket, could be without power for three days due to the size of the storm path and the widespread damage.
High winds felled hundreds of trees, while lightning damaged hydro lines and poles.
"It's a tangled mess out there," said Daffyd RODERICK of Hydro One.
In York Region, the severe thunderstorm forced the closing of Woodbine Ave. between Davis Dr. and Green Lane in Newmarket because of a downed power line that fell across Woodbine Ave.
The damaged line was the primary cause for the power outage that struck the northern part of York Region late Monday and early Tuesday.
The Ontario Provincial Police also warned motorists the traffic lights at Highway 9 and Highway 400 northbound will be out for a few days.
Environment Canada's forecast says that more thunderstorm activity could return tomorrow, when the Toronto area could see temperatures near 31°C and rising humidity, too.
