THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Vera Elsie (née RADCLIFF)
(July 10, 1915-December 19, 2006)
Vera died peacefully after a brief stay in hospital. She was born in Regina and lived in Moose Jaw before moving with her parents to Vancouver in 1927. Vera was predeceased by her husband Callum THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, parents Charles and Elsie as well as brothers George and Lorne. At 17 she received her A.T.C.M. from the Toronto Conservatory of Music, attaining the highest marks in Canada. Her University of British Columbia years are deeply etched in her life particularly her activities with the Music Society which continued long after graduation. Vera chose to express her gifts through teaching, conducting, and mentoring students. In 1995, her last formal piano student passed through her doors, some 60 years after the first. In one sense, Vera's death marks the end of a line. But through the years of sharing music, humour, love of Canada, and a passion for teaching, she touched the lives of countless people, all of whom now carry her spirit forward. Friends and former students will gather for a celebration of her life at Ryerson United Church, 2195 West 45th Avenue, Kerrisdale, 11 a.m., Saturday, December 30, 2006. Viewing from 10 a.m., burial to follow service. Flowers to be sent to the church. In lieu of flowers, donations in Vera's memory may be made to a charity of your choice.

HEASLIP, William Arthurs, C.M., LL.D. (Hon.)
(July 5, 1927-March 3, 2006)
78, died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Florida, on March 3, 2006. Adored husband of Nona MacDONALD, he is the cherished brother of Betty DREW- BROOK (Bob) of Qualicum Beach, British Columbia. He was predeceased by his two other sisters, Alice RADFORD (Paul) and Doris MORRIS (Bert.) He is uncle of Bruce RADFORD (Rosemary), Brenda Radford MILLION (Rob) the MORRIS children - Debra, Lee, Sheri, Bob, Bill and Brad - and of the Drew-Brooks - Alan, Neil and Paul. He and the late Richard CHATER co-founded one of Canada's largest retail clothing conglomerates, Grafton Group Ltd. Bill retired as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman in 1992. He was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada and received an Honorary Doctorate from St. Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia. His interest in education led him to create undergraduate ongoing scholarships for the following universities: Toronto, York, Western Ontario, Waterloo, Guelph, Prince Edward Island, Memorial, Manitoba and British Columbia. His many grand-nieces and grand-nephews will remember him for his financial assistance in achieving their higher education goals. At the University of Toronto, he established the Nona Macdonald Visitors Centre and the Macdonald Heaslip Walkway at Hart House Theater. At Ryerson University, Heaslip House for Continuing Education opened recently as did The Macdonald Heaslip Theatre at Sheridan Institute, Oakville. Other significant gifts have been made to Shaw Festival, Soulpepper Theatre, Toronto Symphony, Canadian Opera Company, Art Gallery of Ontario, Design Centre and Banff Centre for the Arts. He was a dedicated fundraiser and board member of Care Canada and Canadian Liver Foundation. He made major gifts to United Way, Rotary Club and Hincks Institute. Hospitals that benefitted from his giving include: Sunnybrook, Women's College, St. Michael's and Toronto General. An avid golfer, he held club memberships at Rosedale, Toronto Hunt; and in Florida at The Oaks he scored a 77, one-less-his-age, this January. A skilled fly fisherman, he belonged to Ristigouche Salmon Club, New Brunswick, and to the Caledon Mountain Trout Club, Ontario. Other recreational clubs were Tadenac in Georgian Bay and Griffiths Island. Two highlights of a favourite sport, Ballooning, were soaring over The Alps and participating in the 200th Anniversary of Ballooning, starting from Place de la Concorde, Paris. His love of wine was enjoyed with the members of The Tastevin des Chevaliers and The Commanderie de Bordeaux societies. In the 1820's, the Heaslips immigrated to Ontario from County Wexford, Ireland. This Irish background may account for his convivial and generous nature. Unfortunately, the 'luck of the Irish' ran out when heart disease, prevalent in the family, became his problem in later years. Thanks to superb surgery, he survived two by-pass operations at Toronto General Hospital where he has been a decade-long patient of Dr. Douglas WIGLE, his friend and cardiologist. Stricken suddenly at his Florida residence, he succumbed to a stroke. An organ donor at his death, he gave the ultimate gift - his liver so befitting a benefactor of the Canadian Liver Foundation. Bill HEASLIP will be remembered always, by his wide-ranging coterie of loyal Friends; by George and Joan REYNOLDS, by Carmelita and Danny ALCALA and by his wife's family, the Macdonald clan. Family and Friends are invited to celebrate his life on Monday, May 8, 2006 at Rosedale Golf Club, Toronto from 5: 30 to 8:00 p.m. If desired, a charitable donation may be made to any of the above-mentioned universities or to Theatre Museum Canada, 77 Bloor St. West, Ste. 1903, Toronto, Ontario M5S 1M2.

VAS, Stephen (1926-2006)
A Pioneer In Peritoneal Dialysis, Professor Of Microbiology And Medicine University Of Toronto
Stephen was born on June 4, 1926, as the second child after his sister Veronika, in Budapest. His father was the shopkeeper and owner of a hardware store in central Budapest. After receiving his High School diploma from the Fasor Gymnasium in the Spring of 1944, he was taken right away into a Nazi labour camp in the southeast part of Hungary. Subsequent to the liberation of Romania, Stephen escaped the camp and fled to Bucharest. He originally planned to study physics, yet when the Hungarian University in Cluj (Kolozsvár) opened, he started studying medicine as this was the only discipline offered. After the war finished in Hungary, Stephen returned to Budapest in 1945 and continued his studies there. He received his M.D. in 1950. As a young doctor, Stephen worked in various hospitals and public health research institutes. He also spent three years in the military as an immunologist, and focused on epidemic control and microbiology. Stephen married Dr. Magdalena RADITZ in 1954. In 1956 he received his 'Candidacy' (PhD). The same year, Stephen and Magdalena fled Hungary to Vienna, where Stephen received a Rockefeller Scholarship to go to Montreal. Three years later, he started teaching at McGill medicine and microbiology. Five years before leaving Montreal, Stephen became the chairman of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at McGill. In 1977, Magdalena and Stephen moved to Toronto, where he became Chief of Microbiology and Magdalena joined the hematology department of the Toronto Western Hospital. Stephen VAS when he moved from Montreal to Toronto to become our Microbiologist-in-Chief, he helped us immensely in the diagnosis of treatment of peritonitis in patients on Chronic Peritoneal Dialysis and he applied his vast knowledge of microbiology and infectious diseases to the care of his patients. He was one of the first to study the inflammatory response of the peritoneal cavity and he went around the world lecturing on the principles of treatment of the infectious complications of peritoneal dialysis. Until the end of his life, he was available and gave his opinion freely about these difficult problems to people who called from around the world. He cared deeply for his patients who literally adored him, especially the women, who felt so comfortable with his compassionate care. After his retirement, he was happy looking after peritoneal dialysis patients who were totally attached to him. He was always available to the nurses day or night, whenever they needed his advice. Unfortunately five years ago, Magdalena died and Stephen became quite depressed, although he never let his feelings show during our daily interactions. However, at the end his loneliness became quite strong, and the attraction of his family and his roots were so strong that he decided to return to Budapest. He was excited by the fact that not only the physicians and nurses there but even the Government officials held him in great respect. He supported with all his strength the Nephrology department of Saint Margit Hospital in Budapest. He was deeply involved in teaching, something that he always enjoyed. Stephen died on the 14th of October 2006.

RADOSTITS, Doctor Otto M., C.M., D.V.M.
(August 31, 1934-December 15, 2006)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Otto Martin RADOSTITS on December 15, 2006. The family is thankful for his many years of wonderful health and his productive life. We are joyful that his courageous battle with kidney cancer is over and he is at peace with his God. Otto was born in Edmonton, the eldest son of Austrian immigrants, Stephen and Hermine RADOSTITS (deceased), who instilled in their four boys the values of the Roman Catholic faith, a strong work ethic and the importance of a good education. Otto's early years on a mixed farm and his high school job at the Blue Cross Animal Hospital in Edmonton were the beginnings of a life long passion for veterinary medicine. Otto received his DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1959 and a Master of Science degree from the University of Saskatchewan (U. of S.) in 1967. As a veterinary educator, clinician and author, Otto had a profound influence on his students, on the establishment and growth of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the U. of S. and on his beloved profession. On his retirement in 2002, he was appointed Professor Emeritus and the Western Canadian Association of Bovine Practitioners established the O.M. Radostits Legacy Fund to fund an annual lecture series on bovine medicine. Otto received many awards and honours during his career. He treasured his teaching awards, particularly the Master Teacher award from the U. of S. He was humbled and proud to be made a member of the Order of Canada in 2003. In 2006 he received the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association President's Award to recognize his dedication and contributions to the Association and he also received the Sask Centennial Medal. Otto's wise counsel, mentorship and his numerous authoritative textbooks on large animal medicine were sought after nationally and internationally. Otto loved classical music, attending the Saskatoon Symphony, singing (especially the annual WCVM student Christmas carolling), reading, tennis, biking and long walks, even at -30°. His most special times were spent at family celebrations with his wife and extended family. He loved to debate the issues of the day - his daily reading of the Globe and Mail made him a formidable debater and kept us all informed. Although, his profession allowed him to travel the world, there was no place like home. He was a proud Canadian and always thankful for the many opportunities our country provides for all. Otto leaves his loving and devoted wife, Ruth (Clancy,) six children and their families: Anna ALDERSON (Pryce,) Liam and Erin; Eileen RADOSTITS, Gershon and Sophia Julia RADOSTITS (Richard HONG,) Sebastian and Justin; Stephen RADOSTITS (Robin FISHER), Todd, Mark, Kurt and Joshua; Anita LIVINGSTONE (Brent,) Kayden and Chloe; and Jennifer ARTHURS (Richard,) Brendan and Lauren; his three brothers Ivan (Mary Agnes), Peter (Brenda) and Francis (Pat) and their families; his sister-in-law Velma KELEHER and brother-in-law Michael CLANCY and their families his special cousins Mitzi CROWE (Fred,) Mary METZ (Harry,) Jean EASTWOOD (Kirby) and their families; and the RADOSTITS clan in Chicago. Otto also leaves many Friends and veterinary colleagues around the world. We all will miss deeply his strong presence, his beautiful loud voice and his challenges. Prayer service will be held at Holy Family Church (110 - 104th Street, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan S7N 1M8) on Thursday, December 21, 2006 at 7 p.m. and the Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Family on Friday, December 22, 2006 at 11 a.m. Private family interment at Holy Cross Cemetery in Edmonton to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Saint Paul's Hospital Foundation Inc. (1702 - 20th St. W, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, S7M 9Z9), Holy Family Church Building Fund or a charity of choice. Arrangements in care of John Schachtel - Mourning Glory Funeral Services, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (306-978-5200).
