IVEY, Beryl M. (née NURSE)
In the early hours of Christmas morning, in her 83rd year, 2007, Beryl IVEY died in her sleep of heart failure. She will be greatly missed by her husband Richard, her children Richard (Donna), Jennifer Ivey BANNOCK, Rosamond (John MacFARLANE) and Suzanne Ivey COOK (Dan,) her grandchildren Samantha, Alexandra and William IVEY, Olivia, Stephanie and Michael BANNOCK, and Dylan, Myles and Hayden COOK, and her brother Robert NURSE (Margaret.) Born in Chatham, Ontario, Beryl was predeceased by her parents Lt. Col. W. IVAN and Beatrice NURSE, and her sister Audrey WRIGHT.
A celebrated athlete in high school, Beryl attended Brescia College at the University of Western Ontario on full scholarship, earning a B.A., and then attended the Ontario College of Education.
In 1949 she began a 58 year partnership with Dick in which they focused on raising a family, volunteerism, community leadership and philanthropy. As the children grew, she became actively engaged as a board member for many arts organizations including the Shaw Festival and the National Ballet School. A lifelong interest in gardening and extensive travel to exotic destinations with Dick led Beryl to become increasingly enthralled by, and concerned for, nature's great gifts. For more than forty years, through environmental grantmaking at the Ivey Foundation and leadership at organizations such as the World Wildlife Fund Canada, she stood up and spoke out for conservation and the protection of biodiversity.
To round out her interests, for the last twenty years Beryl also devoted her considerable energy to the betterment of Canada's healthcare system through London based health care institutions, and to the advancement of education and research at The University of Western Ontario. Her devotion to volunteerism and philanthropy were recognized this year with her appointment as a Member of the Order of Canada.
Beryl's kind and generous nature, impeccable integrity, intellectual curiosity and pursuit of excellence were admired by all who knew her.
A private family service and burial will take place on her 83rd birthday, December 28th. A memorial service, followed by a reception, will be held on Friday, January 11, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. at Saint Paul's Cathedral, 472 Richmond Street, London, Ontario. In lieu of flowers, a charitable donation to Foundation Western at University of Western Ontario or London Community Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

BLACK, Kenneth James
Died on August 11, 2007 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto from complications following pneumonia. Loving husband of Mary, who predeceased him in 1976, a devoted father to Amy and grandfather to Theo BROOKE, born August 2006; he was adored by Amy, Theo and son-in-law Stephen BROOKE. His sister-in-law Marjorie BLACK, nieces and nephew Cathy, Diane and Norm BLACK, great-nephew Gregory BLACK and great-niece Jacqueline BLACK, cousins Michel JONES, Stephen and Stuart THURSBY, Wendy and Bill KREVER, and Natalie COYLE were all dear members of his family in Ontario. He will be greatly missed by all his family from Winnipeg: brother-in-law Alfred KAYE, nephews and nieces John, Kathie, Gordon and Jeanne KAYE; great-nieces and great-nephews Liz, Cameron, Donna, Michael, and Michele KAYE, Michael PURVES- SMITH and Robert POHL. Ken was also a dear and caring uncle to niece Nicola IVANOVIC, nephews David and Neil CHAPMAN, great-nieces Natasha and Isabella IVANOVIC and Jessica CHAPMAN, all of Merseyside, England; he was a cherished brother-in-law to Rosemarie CHAPMAN and Dennis CHAPMAN, also of Merseyside. He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth, and brothers Ralph and Arthur, and by his nieces Jacqueline BLACK and Margaret KAYE. Ken's strong sense of loyalty and fun animated a wide circle of Friends in Canada and in England over his entire life.
Ken was born in Winnipeg on May 10, 1924, the youngest of Norman and Margaret BLACK's four children. He attended the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy in corvettes during the Second World War. After the war, he became a journalist, first working at the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Tribune then spending time in Europe and England for Reuters. In 2006, he published a memoir of his adventures during and after the war entitled Telling It Like It Was. He joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1957 where he worked, in both radio and television, for over 35 years, in London, England, Saint John's, Newfoundland and Toronto. After his retirement he dedicated himself to his many interests, including travelling, writing, neighbourhood activism, birdwatching and his legendary annual Victoria Day Party.
Ken brought an unrivalled joy to life and touched everyone he met with this enthusiasm and with his charm and humour. He was a true gentleman, but with a wry and sometimes mischievous outlook. Ken had the gift of treating everyone with the same gracious manner. As the countless guests to his house will attest, he was the soul of hospitality. He was as happy playing with children as entertaining adults and will be remembered by a number of generations as the delightful and engaged grown-up always ready with wind-up toys, kites, stories and songs. His interests were eclectic, but they were bound together by an unceasing curiosity and energy. Ken was the cherished heart of a number of social worlds and families. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August, 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street (one block east of Parliament, just south of King Street East, Toronto). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken's memory to the Bruce Trail Association.
