DRYBURGH, Joy " Jocelyn" (née PATERSON)
Went home to her Lord on January 12, 2006, at Victoria Hospital, just 8 days short of her 81st birthday. She was predeceased by her husband Dr. Bob (1990). Precious mom to Sharon and Brian MAHON, Heather DRYBURGH and Eddie EBANKS, Dean and Lynn DRYBURGH and Pam and Kevin DASH. Awesome Grandma to Justin, Amy and Nick MAHON, Kathy and Jeff BUELL, Kristy PEARSON and Mike CAIRNS, Jordan, Kim PEARSON, Kristen, Melanie, Heather and Brad DRYBURGH, Sarah, Meredith and Melissa DASH, and Abuk. Survived by her sister Beverly (George) MADILL, and predeceased by her parents James and Jessie PATERSON and her brother Grant PATERSON. Joy was just that, a joy, and we will deeply miss her laughter, her companionship and her prayer for all of us. She was well loved and respected and had a new awareness of that over the last few weeks, which was an incredible gift from God to her before He took her home. Special thanks to Laurie SHAW and her team, the 4th floor staff at London Health Sciences Centre and the staff (and chef!) at Central Park Lodge for your care for Mom over the last few weeks. Details of visitation and funeral to follow. (James A. Harris Funeral Home, telephone: 433-7253)

She sold the first hot dog at the Air Canada Centre
By Danny GALLAGHER, Page S7
Toronto -- Bessie LAMSON, who worked hard all her life, died at the Carpenter Hospice in Burlington, Ontario, on June 24. She was 107.
Over the years, Ms. LAMSON toiled as a maid, put in time on an assembly line, worked at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens when it was first built in the 1920s and sold the first hot dog at the Air Canada Centre in 1999.
Born on February 8, 1899, she was the eldest of eight children born to Charles and Charlotte LAMSON, descendants of Empire Loyalists who had settled in Cardinal, Ontario She left home in her early teens to work at a hospital across the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg, N. Y, then moved to Toronto to become a maid at the Park Plaza Hotel.
Later, she worked for 12 years for the Elizabeth Arden beauty company, where she was employed in the lunch room, on the assembly line and in the packaging department. On her way to work one day, she noticed that houses were being torn down in Toronto to make way for a new hockey shrine to be known as Maple Leaf Gardens.
"She was very upset with the buildings being taken down and that some people would have no place to live," said her niece, Nancy MILLER- KARKOULAS, of Burlington. "But she said she couldn't do anything about it and decided she would go there and work part-time selling hot dogs."
When Ms. LAMSON's supervisor at the Gardens told her she couldn't listen to Leafs games on her transistor radio (her job was far from the playing surface), she quit and purchased season's tickets way up in the grey seats. On February 13, 1999, she attended the final game played at the Gardens and was on the ice for the final ceremonies.
When the Air Canada Centre replaced the Gardens, she was asked to sell the first hot dog there. The sale was made to Leafs owner Steve STAVRO. Ken DRYDEN, then club president, had been the intended target but he'd been delayed by traffic. Ms. LAMSON was fond of Mr. DRYDEN because, for many years, he had sent her birthday cards.
Ms. LAMSON, who liked a shot of brandy here and there, once explained the reasons for her longevity: "I did what I wanted to do, I never married and I never smoked."
