SMILLIE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-04-24 published
Doctor helped pioneer Canadian system of Well Baby Clinics
Graduating in 1938, she was expected to join a physician-driven approach to infant health inspired by the example of the famous Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe. Instead, she preferred adult patients
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Toronto -- Early on as a physician, Elspie SHAVER found herself untangling stethoscopes from the clutch of curious infants. Back then, she wasn't given much choice in terms of where to practise. She was a woman doctor. Ergo, she'd work with mothers and babies - what could be more natural? So off she went to tend the growing families that attended a Well Baby Clinic in an East Toronto neighbourhood.
The history of Canada's Well Baby Clinics is often overlooked, but the work of those who staffed these centres, particularly a cadre of public health nurses (doctors worked there only one afternoon a week) shows an extraordinary effort to stem alarming rates of infant and child mortality. Most clinics were closed by the 1960s but variations exist today, mostly in rural or remote communities.
Seventy years ago, the clinics were frequented by poor women. After the Second World War, many of Doctor SHAVER's patients were among the 48,000 war brides who immigrated to Canada. According to Madeline SMILLIE, a nurse who worked with her at a clinic at Kew Gardens on Queen Street in Toronto, their facility experienced an influx of pregnant women and their small children, sometimes 90 women and twice that many children in one afternoon.
Children were immunized against smallpox, scarlet fever, diphtheria, measles, whooping cough, typhoid, tuberculosis, infantile paralysis and cerebrospinal meningitis. The clinic was typically staffed by four public health nurses who kept things going and handed out information, plus a couple of volunteers who helped calm anxious children. Doctor SHAVER did examinations once a week. The history of the clinics also includes plenty of mother-blaming. In those days, the business of babies and health care was a scientific matter, and professionals could be highly critical of what they considered to be ignorant and neglectful parents, primarily mothers.
Historian Cynthia COMACCHIO of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, studied Ontario's Well Baby Clinics and described their philosophy. "This doctor-designed educational crusade called for the creation of a new, improved, scientific mother, a thoroughly modern mother befitting the new industrial order," she said. "Modern motherhood was infused with the spirit of industry, with its unrelenting demands for regularity, scheduling, systematization, discipline, and productivity."
The birth of Canada's most famous little girls, the Dionne quintuplets, probably added to the highly regimented, doctor-driven approach to raising children. During their early years, the quints were accommodated in a purpose-built hospital compound under the care of Doctor Allan Roy Dafoe, who had delivered them.
To Ms. SMILLIE, Doctor SHAVER was a rare kind of doctor. What made her unusual was not so much that she was a woman, but rather that she spent time actually listening to the mothers as their babies fidgeted on their laps. "The patient wasn't in and out in 10 minutes, that's for sure. She got to know them better from spending more time with them."
Dr. SHAVER was also atypical in another respect. Back then, no doubt due to the sometimes patronizing attitudes of doctors in these clinics, it was out of the ordinary for nurses and doctors to get along well. But Doctor SHAVER and Ms. SMILLIE quickly became Friends and remained so for the next 60 years.
Dr. SHAVER spent her early years in Brampton, Ontario where she lived with her father, Lemen HALNAN, and her mother, Elspie HALNAN, until the family moved to Stratford, Ontario, when she was 9. She was a rough-and-tumble girl who preferred climbing trees and skating on the Avon River to puttering in the kitchen or playing with dolls. "She wasn't terrible domesticated," said Ms. SMILLIE, although she did recall a story about her friend shocking the community by winning a pie-baking contest in high school.
Her schoolteacher father had great expectations for his only child. He steered her toward a future as a physician from an early age, insisting that she excel in math and sciences and not fool around with her future. But his ambition for her didn't always match her ambition for herself. It was a perplexing and unusual contradiction. On one hand, he encouraged his daughter to pursue non-traditional women's work, while on the other, he gave her little freedom of choice and pressured her relentlessly in the worst patriarchal manner.
In 1930, very much on schedule and with excellent grades, she moved to the big city to begin pre-med studies at the University of Toronto. But about a month later, purely by chance, her father learned that she had gone behind his back and instead registered in pre-law. In a rage, he caught a train and rushed to Toronto, where he yanked her out of the program. He presented her with two choices: Either go to medical school and become a doctor, or return with him to Stratford and attend teacher's college.
"In the end, she went where she should have and she learned to love it," said Ms. SMILLIE. "So I don't know what she was thinking when she thought of law. In my opinion, she was a much better physician than she would have been a lawyer."
Dr. SHAVER graduated from medical school in 1938. In that year's graduation ceremony, there were 110 men and eight women. In the audience sat her deeply proud father. He died the following year.
By then, however, another man had entered her life. Some time between the demands of studying and satisfying her father's dreams, Dr. SHAVER found herself at a university dance in the arms of Victor SHAVER, who at 6 foot 4, was a tall match for her own 5-foot-10 stature.
Romance bloomed and they were married in 1940, soon after the outbreak of the Second World War. According to Ms. SMILLIE, Mr. SHAVER always believed it was his wife's careful attention to his heart (he had been born with a cardiac defect) that he managed to live so well. He became a high-school teacher and later a principal.
Dr. SHAVER interned at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in Toronto and spent a year at Women's College Hospital before going to work at the Well Baby Clinic. While doing her weekly clinic shifts, she also began a 14-year career as an anesthetist at the Toronto East General Hospital. Speculating about what it might have been like for a woman doctor in those days, Prof. COMACCHIO said the systemic challenges would have been stupendous, particularly at the Well Baby Clinic. On top of the animosity frequently experienced between nurses and attending physicians, where the doctors tended to demand subordination and obedience from both nurses and young mothers, Doctor SHAVER would have likely encountered another kind of complication.
"Women doctors had to take particular care not to 'over-identify' with women nurses," she wrote. "… Their gender made them 'inferior' to their male colleagues, while their profession made them 'superior' to the nurses… women doctors probably had to step very carefully so as to keep the professional hierarchy intact while also avoiding the nurses."
All the while, Doctor SHAVER developed a private practice. As truth would have it, Doctor SHAVER preferred adults over children and spent the rest of her 50-year career growing old alongside her patients. "In those days, the general public was not too familiar with female physicians. They weren't exactly rushing to them&hellip It took a long time [for Doctor SHAVER] to build up a practice."
Eventually, Doctor SHAVER worked out of her central Toronto home. In the late 1960s, Doctor SHAVER and her husband bought a second home in Brampton, where they spent weekends. In 1972, she turned 65 and spent the next 15 years working part time. But, said Ms. SMILLIE, she was never far from her doctor's bag - she left many a dinner party to make a house call.
Her good friend, Paddy Silverthorne, met Doctor SHAVER in 1983 at the Brampton Business and Professional Women's Club, where both women were members. Ms. Silverthorne was working for American Motors, while Doctor SHAVER was still working part time as a physician. By then, she was in her early 70s and continued to maintain a devoted core of patients.
"I valued Elspie's intellect and knowledge as far as medicine was concerned," Ms. Silverthorne said. "I felt that she had forgotten more than most of the medical profession had ever learned."
In 1995, Victor SHAVER died 56 years after their first dance together. They had no children, even though Doctor SHAVER had worked with hundreds of youngsters. "She was not gung ho on children," said Ms. SMILLIE.
What Doctor SHAVER really enjoyed was the chance to whip her Friends in a game of bridge or a round of golf, or to take long, slow scenic drives to Niagara Falls or to Florida.
Elspie SHAVER was born Elspie Roberta HALNAN on May 22, 1912, in Brampton, Ontario She died of natural causes on February 18, 2008, at Woodhall Park Specialty Care in Brampton. She was 95. She left no immediate survivors.

NIXON, Annie McPhail "Nan" (née McLEAN)
Nan NIXON passed away peacefully at Errinrung Residence in Thornbury on Monday May 26, 2008 at the age of 93. Born in Greenock, Scotland, she was the daughter of John and Lilius (née DELGARNO) McLEAN. At the age of 15 Nan immigrated to Canada with her parents and siblings. Although Nan received a limited education and faced many challenges in her earlier life, as was so often the case in those years, she was able to fulfill her most important dreams, those of raising her family and being a kind and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She is remembered by her family and Friends as a wise woman whose patience and forgiveness set examples for all to follow. She loved her home and ensured that it was always a welcoming environment for all and her homemaking skills were passed as a legacy to her children. Her home was always clean, the treadle sewing machine rarely resting as she made and re-made clothing for her family and the results of her knitting and quilting were cherished by all who received her homemade gifts. Above all Nan loved to play with the grandchildren sharing their laughter while enjoying checkers, dominoes, snakes and ladders and many card games. She encouraged her family to strive to succeed by endeavoring to do their best at whatever task might be in front of them. She shared her spirit with the gentle 'toughness' that was her inspiring strength of character. Nan was predeceased by her husband Robert Henry NIXON in 1956 when she was a woman of 41 years of age and she remained undaunted in her dedication that her family should know the warmth and security of home. She is remembered as a loving mother by her daughters Dorothy FROST of Thornbury, Isobel LEVACQUE of Collingwood and Debra Nixon McLEOD of Nottawa and she was predeceased by her son Bill NIXON. She is lovingly remembered as a dear mother-in-law by her daughter-in-law Betty (SANGSTER) Nixon VANDERLINDEN of Clayhurst, British Columbia, and by her son-in-law Roger McLEOD of Nottawa. She will also be remembered by her brother Jim McLEAN of Parksville, British Columbia and by sisters-in-law May McLEAN and Joy McLEAN, both of Meaford. Nan was also predeceased by sons-in-law Bill FROST, Ray LEVACQUE and Dale VANDERLINDEN and by brothers and sisters John McLEAN (Isabelle,) Jean SMITH (Harvey,) May MARTIN (Ray), David McLEAN, Tom McLEAN (Ethel), and Bill McLEAN. Nan will be most affectionately remembered as the devoted matriarch of her family including her seven grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren and her many nieces and nephews and their families. As Nan desired, a family service of committal and interment of her cremated remains, officiated by Reverend Dr. Brian GOODINGS of Grace United Church, was conducted at Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery on Friday May 30 where Nan's ashes were interred with her late husband. If so desired, and in memory of Nan, memorial donations to Thameswood Lodge, a residence for cancer patients in London, Ontario, would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, The Valley Chapel, in Thornbury to whom arrangements have been entrusted.

Mom,
Till the stars have lost their sparkle
And the sun no longer shines
Till the flowers fail to bloom
You will always be on our mind
Till lighting no longer strikes,
And rain stops falling
Till the rainbow have no ending
Your name we will be still calling
Till time stops ticking
And skies are empty of blue
Till our heart stops beating
We will always love you.
Forever loved, Marilyn, Doug, Billy, Connie and Keith

If tears could build a stairway, and memories were a lane.
We would walk right up to heaven, to bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it, and our only thought is why.
You left us a garden of beautiful memories, watered by a million tears,
Although we smile and make no fuss, no one misses him more than us.
And when old times we recall, that's when we miss him most of all.

We little knew that morning
That God would call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Dad,
A million times we needed you,

If love alone would have saved you,
You would of never died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still,
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one can ever fill.
A light from our household is gone
,A voice from our love is stilled,
A place in our vacant home,
Which never can be filled.
Some may think you are forgotten,
Though on earth you are no more,
But in our memory you are with us,
As you always were before.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
A part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
Your precious memories are for keepsakes,
With which we never part,
God has you safely in his keeping,
But we have you forever in our hearts.
Always loved and sadly missed by Mary, Joe, Jeannie, Donna, Dan, Darin,

Because we're missing her today.

DANIEL, Jerry
My Final Broadcast Peacefully and prayerfully, in my 69th year, after a courageous battle at Alexandra Hospital surrounded by my family on June 2, 2008 our Lord welcomed me home. I leave behind my devoted and adoring wife of 47 years Diane (TREMBLAY,) and my 5 loving children and their spouses. Jerry Jr. and his wife Roxanne (ANTAYA,) Terry and his wife Terryanne (CARROLL,) Mark and his wife Sherri (SMITH,) Michelle and her husband Jim (MERRIFIELD,) Nicole and her husband Dany (JACQUES.) I will continue to watch over my beautiful grandchildren that gave me more joy than I ever thought possible - Jessica and John DANIEL, Kyle and Brittany DANIEL and Brandi and Daniel LEWIS, Tara and Mitchell DANIEL, Mark and Matthew MERRIFIELD and "Peanut" Jacques as well as my sister Pat PROUSE of Ingersoll. I have been reunited with those who went before including my mom Delia (GATES) 1989 and dad Naboth 1996. My life has been full and blessed. I was fortunate to love my chosen career in broadcasting which spanned over 40 years. Starting at CFCO in Chatham, CHOK in Sarnia, SJCS Stratford, CFPL London, and finally CKOT Tillsonburg where I forged many lifelong Friendships. I also derived joy from my many years of DJ work. It is hard to imagine the number of first dance songs I played for newlyweds over the years and the people who knew me by my unique speakers. I express special thanks to our family physician Doctor Kelly SHAUGHNESSEY who was a tremendous support throughout and the loving care given by the Alexandra Hospital staff. In regards to my illness I am indebted to Woodstock Urologist Doctor VOGALIN and excellent medical staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre including Doctor Mary McKENZIE and her assistants Grace and Paul. I appreciated the constant support of John LAMERS, Owner and General Manager of CKOT Easy 101.3, Elaine BELANGER, Kathy BEEMER, Peter BAUMAN/BOWMAN, Lorette CRUNDWELL, George MANTLER, Doug OLTSHER, Pat PROUSE, Dean and Cheryl SHEVALIER, Louie TREMBLAY and Luanne WATT. Community Care Access Centre and their dedicated caring staff allowed me to spend my final days at home with my family where I wanted to be. God Bless You.

(Janurary 12, 1985-July 11, 2002)
Don't think of Katie as gone away, Her adventure has just begun, Our lives hold many dimensions, Life on earth is merely one. Remember Katie smiling, As she is today, Knowing only our sadness, Can truly pass away. Think of her forever alive, In the hearts of those she touched. No one loved is ever lost, and Katie is loved so much.

ZABOROWSKI, Eugene
Died peacefully, January 18th, 2008, in his 94th year, after a brief illness at Guelph General Hospital. Born January 6th, 1915, in Tuapsc, Russia, on the Black Sea, Eugene was raised and educated in Poland. He served as a 2nd Leftenant in the Polish Army - Artillery, was captured by the Russians in 1939 and survived the Soviet Gulag labour camps to join the Allied Forces where he trained as an Royal Air Force navigator. In 1950, he immigrated to Canada and settled with his wife Janina, in Oakville, Ontario. He worked for Sun Life Insurance, Dufferin Construction and St. Lawrence Cement until his retirement. His zest for life was evident in the great pleasure he found in the art and craft of every day living. He built his own homes (Campbellville and Erin), raised a menagerie of animals, and grew a thriving garden of fruits and vegetables, all destined for the table. His repertoire also included making his own sausage, smoking bacon, baking his own rye bread, pickling mushrooms, fishing, and telling riveting stories of his war years. He loved languages, tutoring his family and Friends, reciting Polish poetry and practising Russian, until his death. He also loved a good joke, a good drink, a challenging game of bridge, and a rousing discussion with his best friend Ludck Kraszewski, in equal measure. His tender devotion in caring for his wife, Janina, for 15 years after her major stroke, continues to be an inspiration to all of us.
Eugene was predeceased by his wife Janina (Dr. ZABOROWSKA 2000) he is lovingly remembered by his daughter Eva ROSS (John,) son Mark (Kathleen JONATHAN,) and grandchildren Jason ROSS (Heather SMITH,) Jenna VEENSTRA (Dave) and Amanda BELL (Josh,) ten lively great-grandchildren - Gage, Nolan, Jett, Preston and Jaxxon ROSS and Danielle, Jacob, Joanna, Sarah and Rebecca VEENSTRA.
A memorial service will be held at Saint_John Brebeuf Catholic Church on Saturday, January 26th, 2 p.m. at 24 Millwood St. Erin, Ontario with reception to follow. The family wishes to thank the Guelph General Hospital and Riverside Glen staff for their gentle care in his last days.

Uncompromising, transformative professor nurtured students and grudges across borders
Abused as a child in England, he arranged passage to Canada and built a successful but peripatetic academic career
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
Pomp, circumstance and hooded academic gowns were the order of the day when York University celebrated its 40th anniversary in March, 1999. Among the invited guests was John R. SEELEY, the university's first professor of sociology, and a former friend and colleague of inaugural president Murray ROSS.
"What are you doing here?" a clearly affronted Prof. ROSS demanded when Prof. SEELEY, who had travelled from his home in California, arrived at the reception. "I was invited," Prof. SEELEY replied. Enraged, Prof. ROSS threw his gown across the room and stomped out and had to be persuaded to return, according to some of the other guests in attendance.
Prof. ROSS was not alone in his antipathy to Prof. SEELEY, an elfin-like man of diminutive stature (5 foot 4 at a stretch) but outsized moral and intellectual presence. His maddening refusal to compromise personal ethical standards led to his abrupt departure from teaching positions at several universities. Senior bureaucrats at two Ontario universities vetoed decisions to hire him despite his reputation as a top sociologist who eventually had more than 400 publications, including Crestwood Heights: A North American Suburb, Community Chest: A Case Study in Philanthropy, and a collection of psychological essays, The Americanization of the Unconscious.
But the same qualities that frightened administrators and branded him a troublemaker often made him a transformative influence. His capacity for listening, his respect for the individual and his ability to nurture ideas and people, especially children and young adults, made him a moral beacon for many.
"He was more important in my life than either of my parents," criminal lawyer Clayton RUBY said in an interview.
"He picked up everything I was concerned about before I'd finished the sentence and replied, as always, with astute, sensitive advice," said journalist Rick SALUTIN, who, like Mr. RUBY, was a student at York in the early 1960s. "I have no idea what I'll do for advice without him."
Prof. SEELEY grew up physically and emotionally abused in England, experiences that shaped his academic interests as a sociologist, his therapeutic approach as a psychoanalyst and his world view as a citizen.
"It was pretty plain to those of us who knew him that his traumatic and terrible childhood gave birth to a lifelong commitment to treating children well, respecting them as people and honouring their right to be free from abuse," his son Ron said. "The way that he started out being treated as a child, without any recognition of who he was, made him thirsty for knowledge and made him recognize the importance of the emotional nurturing of children."
John Ronald SEELEY was born in the Hampstead area of London in 1913, the second of four sons, to Emil FRIEDEBERG, a German businessman who was a principal in a European commodities firm centred in Antwerp. His mother, Lilly SEELEY, was a wealthy Edwardian society woman who may have been mentally ill. The family probably took her last name because of anti-German sentiment during the First World War.
Young John was beaten and abandoned for long stretches by his mother. After his father died when John was 8, he was sent to a boarding school in Heidelberg, Germany, where he was the youngest pupil by far and unable to speak the language. At 12, he was brought back to England and sent to another boarding school, where the headmaster taught him practical life skills and encouraged him to read, to think for himself and to take pride in his intellectual abilities. John was 15 when he saw what was probably an ad offering passage to Canada and the prospect of land for those willing to work as farm labourers for a specified period of time.
Seeing this as a way to escape his mother, John arranged his passage and worked as a farm labourer for three years, and, with the help of a local Presbyterian minister, completed his high-school education. He moved to Toronto in 1931 and found work as a printer's devil at a graphic arts firm called Rolf Clark Stone. Eventually, he worked his way up to export manager and into the affections of secretary Margaret Mary DEROCHER. Mr. SEELEY left in 1940 to study at the University of Chicago, where he earned a bachelor's degree. He returned to Toronto in 1942, enlisted in the army as a second lieutenant and eventually worked his way up to staff captain. He didn't fight overseas, although he was shipped to London on a short-term project that included a progressive attempt to deal with what we now call post-traumatic stress syndrome and postwar planning for veterans.
In 1943, he and Ms. DEROCHER married in Toronto. Between 1944 and 1955, they had four sons: John, David, Ronald and Peter. After demobilization, he returned to the University of Chicago and began work on his doctorate in sociology. He returned to Toronto in 1949 without having completed his dissertation and took a job as executive director of what is now the Canadian Mental Health Association.
He was also teaching part-time in the psychiatry and sociology departments of the University of Toronto, separate departments that he believed for the rest of his life should be combined. These were also the years when he was researching social mores in Toronto's Forest Hill Village, then studying fundraising methods in Indiana. The SEELEYs moved back to Toronto in late 1956 and he took a job as director of research for what is now the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. That same year, Crestwood Heights was published by the University of Toronto Press. The book, based on his five-year study of Forest Hill (the area was not named), described men working extremely hard to maintain a luxurious lifestyle, wives trained to support their husbands by cultivating social connections, and children inculcated with the same mores so they, too, would learn to value social prestige and wealth. It was a hugely influential book. The following year, the University of Toronto published Community Chest, an examination of organized fundraising in Indianapolis and community perceptions of its effectiveness.
While teaching at the U of T, Prof. SEELEY became friendly with Dr. ROSS, a professor of social work. They talked about the issues of the day, including new approaches to education, given the huge wave of children born after the Second World War who were approaching university age. Many of them felt entitled to higher education and wanted a voice in what and how they were taught. In the preface to The New University (a collection of his speeches that amounted to a draft plan for York University,) Prof. ROSS emphasized the beneficial effects of the more intimate setting of a liberal arts college, acknowledging his debt to Prof. SEELEY for "reading, and commenting on, many of these speeches in their original form."
After Prof. ROSS was named the inaugural president of York in 1959, he invited Prof. SEELEY to join him there as professor of sociology. Within three years, the two men were bitterly and publicly estranged, essentially over the institution's size and nature. By 1963, 10 of the 43-member faculty had resigned, several out of dissatisfaction with Prof. ROSS's leadership and what they felt was muddled thinking and misplaced priorities in turning the university into a massive educational factory. Historian Michiel Horn, author of a forthcoming history of York University, and political scientist Denis SMITH, who served as the university's first registrar, both stated in interviews that amid the challenge to find faculty, establish a curriculum and educate students, Prof. ROSS had a tendency to say what he thought people wanted to hear.
As the relationship soured, Prof. SEELEY arranged to be a visiting professor in the sociology department at Brandeis University for the 1963-64 academic year. While teaching at Brandeis, he resigned from York. The following year, he was a visiting fellow at California's Stanford University, and returned to Brandeis in 1965 as chair of the sociology department. Within a short time, he was at odds with the administration over his political activism against the Vietnam War. He objected vociferously to the university sharing students' personal information (including grades) with the Selective Service System, which administered the military draft.
For most of the next decade, Prof. SEELEY moved his family back and forth across the United States as he took up what invariably turned into short-term appointments at a variety of institutions, including the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, a liberal think tank founded by educational philosopher Robert Hutchins in Santa Barbara, California. This didn't last long, as Prof. Hutchins reorganized the centre two years later after a philosophical and economic parting of the ways that saw many fellows depart, including Prof. SEELEY, and others join, including Alexander Comfort, later the author of The Joy of Sex, and Stanford biologist Paul R. Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb.
Prof. SEELEY yearned to return to Canada, especially Toronto, but his dissident political activity and fractious reputation apparently mitigated against formal invitations. He was a "lightening rod," said Ron SEELEY. "He was just too hot for many people in staid institutions to handle."
Nevertheless, he was offered a faculty position in the sociology department at the University of Toronto in May, 1974, which was overruled by senior administrators. Then, a search committee from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education chose him to fill a sociology department vacancy, but this, too, was vetoed by a senior executive after education minister Thomas Wells telephoned Ontario Institute for Studies in Education director Robert Jackson to pass on negative comments about Prof. SEELEY. Amid student and faculty protests, The Globe and Mail wrote an editorial asking whether Mr. Wells had improperly influenced the decision.
Prof. SEELEY, by then 61, finished his academic career at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles as a professor of sociology. He finally received his doctorate (philosophy - social sciences) from International College on January 15, 1975. At 65, he retired and began a new career as a psychoanalyst in private practice under a supervising analyst.
In his last years, he became a devout member of his local Episcopal Church and maintained Friendships with family and Friends.
"It was a wonderful experience to be his child," Ron SEELEY said. "The breadth of his knowledge and his intellect were amazing. It was interesting as he was ill and passing - you could feel all of what he had distributed around the world coming back toward him in letters, visits and phone calls, and so many of them said the same thing: that he had touched their lives in a way that nobody else had and that he was like a father to them."
John Ronald SEELEY was born in London on February 21, 1913. He died at Saint_John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California., on December 16, 2007, after a short illness. He was 94. Predeceased by his wife and his siblings, he is survived by four sons, six grandchildren and extended family.

SMITH, Richard E. " Rick"
Passed suddenly Friday, January 25th at the age of 56 sitting on his brand new snow machine in the bush in northern Ontario. This was a fitting end for a man who was dedicated to his family, Friends, the outdoors and his love of life. Raised on a farm in Azilda, Rick developed uncanny instincts about animals, nature and the land. An avid hunter, fisherman, sportsman and accomplished equestrian, he left behind a huge legacy. Rick and his wife Cathy INCH, own Foothills Farm, a full service equestrian facility in Northern Ontario. Although Rick remained planted in the valley, his desire to grow intellectually drove him to develop a variety of skills. A fully accredited course designer, Rick's knowledge of horses and innate sense of construction led him into a very successful career that enabled him to travel with Cathy and his daughter Natalie to showjumping venues across North America. Never one to sit still, other hobbies included skiing, hockey and canoeing. Whether Rick was travelling in the elite world of showjumping or out in the back 40, he was renowned for his quick wit and sense of timing. Rick's genuine interest in people and incredible loyalty to his Friends and family endeared him to all. These special traits are reflected in his son and sidekick Jedd. The loss of Rick will leave a huge void in everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. He was larger than life. Beloved husband of Cathy INCH. Loving father of Natalie Rebecca SMITH (Jeff LAWRENCE) and Jedd Robert William SMITH. Cherished son of Beryl (Hill) SMITH and the late Earl SMITH predeceased 1985. Loving brother of Garry (Dorothy), James (Paulette), Darlene (Mike JOLIAT,) Nadine (Fern METHE) and Arlene (Brian ONION.) Special brother-in-law to Tracey INCH- PERRAS (Kent). Sadly missed by the Inch family and many loving nieces and nephews. Resting at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury. Friends may call 2-9 p.m. Monday only. A celebration of Rick's life will be held in Scott's Airplane Hangar across from Foothills Farm, 5715 Nickel Offset Rd.

SEAGRAM, Charles Joseph, Q.C.
Barrie, Ontario
(May 20, 1918-January 29, 2008)
Charlie died peacefully at Grove Park Home on Tuesday January 29, 2008 in his 90th year. He is survived by his loving wife Joyce (née LITTLE) 4 children, 12 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild: David (Martha) and their children Tina and Phillip of Cincinnati Jim (Carol) and their children Jason, Kathleen, Naomi (Brian) and baby Kristina, and Sarah of Stayner; Kathy (Jamie SMITH) and their children Leona, William, Julia and Grace of Alliston and Becky (John GUTTERIDGE) and their children Katie-Ann and Rebecca of London. Charlie is the brother of Adine HUSSEY of Toronto and the late Leona CLARK of Victoria. He is the brother-in-law of Doctor Bill LITTLE (Margaret) of Vankoughnet. Charlie was born in Orillia, Ontario in 1918 and moved to Barrie in 1919. At the age of 11 he attended Trinity College School, Port Hope where for the next 7 years he excelled in both athletics (he was a football, cricket, squash and tennis champion) and academics. Crowning his career at Trinity College School he won the All Round Athletic Honours in addition to winning the All Round Top Academic Student Award in 2 consecutive years. Charlie made Friendships at Trinity College School which have lasted a lifetime and which followed him through his army and war experiences, law school and later his law practice. Charlie graduated from University of Toronto in 1939 and Osgoode Hall in 1942. In 1943 he went overseas as a member of the 48th Highlanders and Infantry Regiment as a First Lieutenant. He saw active service in Italy and Continental Europe between January 1944 and September 1945. Following the war, Charlie joined the Barrie law firm of Boys and Boys in 1947 and with Ozzie ROWE, bought the firm in 1949, changing the name to Boys, Seagram and Rowe. 1949 also marked the biggest merger of Charlie's life, marrying Joyce LITTLE, daughter of the late Doctor Bill and Kitty LITTLE. Charlie's active and generous life included a 7 year term as a bencher of the Law Society of Upper Canada, President of the Simcoe County Law Association, a Director of Sterling Trust, Warden and Sidesman of Trinity Anglican Church, a Director of the Barrie Golf and Country Club and member of the Scottish Country Dancers. His love of sports continued throughout his life as he remained active in golf and curling. But the sport for which Charlie will be most remembered is tennis, playing and talking a mean game into his early 80's. When he didn't have a tennis racquet in his hand, he would have a chain saw, garden trowel or a rake, as he loved working outdoors at the house, cottage or bush lot. Always the life of the party, Charlie's wit and humour endeared him to all. He was a loving husband, caring father and friend, and will be deeply missed. We give thanks for the life of this extraordinary dear man. Friends may call at the Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, 30 Worsley Street, Barrie on Friday from 2: 30-5:30 p.m.. The Funeral Service will held at Trinity Anglican Church, 24 Collier Street, Barrie on Saturday February 2, 2008 at 11 a.m. Spring interment Barrie Union Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, you may wish to make a donation in memory of Charlie to Grove Park Home, Trinity Anglican Church, Royal Victoria Hospital, Barrie, or Trinity College School Scholarship Fund, Port Hope.

ASHENHURST, Robert Carl
(April 5, 1918-March 8, 2008)
Carl left us just before he celebrated his 90th birthday. Predeceased by his loving and devoted wife, Rita (née THRASHER) and by his treasured daughter, Jane (Charlie), his passing has left a hole in the hearts of his son John and his wife Brooke MILLS of Surrey, British Columbia, his daughter Lani and her husband Maurice KENNY, of Stratford, and his son Jim and his wife Lila, of Burlington. Carl is predeceased by his sister, Isabel (GREENWOOD) and her husband Al, and by his brother Robert (Bert) and his wife Thelma. Carl will be sorely missed by his grandchildren, Erin ASHENHURST, Corinn SMITH and her husband Paul, along with their daughters Hayleigh and Makenna, and by his grand_son, Rob. To his nieces and nephews, his great-nieces and nephews and their children, Carl represented a wise, generous, humourous and kind 'head of the clan' and he will be long grieved. Carl started life in Goodwood, in Uxbridge Township, Ontario and worked his first paid job at the age of 7, weeding carrots for $0.10 an hour. He was a gifted athlete, excelling particularly in hockey and lacrosse. He started working as a bookkeeper in New Brunswick at the age of 19 and worked his way up through the mining industry to top executive positions in mines such as Heath Steele Mines, Mattagami Lake Mines, Stanley Uranium and Noranda Mines. During this time he helped to raise his family and became a Chartered Accountant. He ended his employment with Noranda as Vice President, Finance. After retiring for a year or so, Carl then started working on the financing of the Blackdome Mine in British Columbia. As President and Chief Executive Officer of Blackdome Mine, he and his team built and brought the gold mine into full production in record time, a culmination of all that he had garnered in his 40+ years in the mining industry of Canada. Carl had a wide circle of close Friends and loved a game of golf, a game of cards and especially a long chin-wag. Most of all Carl loved his family both related and extended. He leaves behind many precious lessons and we absorbed those lessons by his example. Work hard. Play harder. Love hardest. Our sincere thanks to the staff on Kent at Billings Court Manor who eased his journey to the end. Visitation at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street, (one block north of City Hall) Burlington (905-632-3333) on Wednesday from 3-5 and 7-9 p.m., where Funeral Service will be held Thursday, March 13, 2008, at 11: 00 a.m. Interment Springcreek Cemetery, Mississauga.

SMITH, R. Laird, P.Eng.
(5 March 1947 - 12 March 2008)
son of Edna and the late W. Charles SMITH passed from this life at home with the same dignity he had carried throughout his life, after a long and devastating illness. Laird is survived by his beloved wife Barbara and his wonderful and treasured sons Jonathon and Craig as well as Craig's wife Andrea. He is also survived by his loving sister Carolyn and her husband David. There are many cousins, nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews who will sadly miss Laird's "Almost True Farm Stories". Laird's career in engineering spanned over 30 years as a consulting engineer with various successful firms including his own. It was a profession that he truly loved. Even when he was really too ill to work, he accepted a position at the Regional Municipality of Halton just to do "pure engineering" as he called it. I hope that those who knew Laird well will remember him fondly for his integrity, dedication, wry wit and spectacular dance moves.
Rest well now, Smitty Darling.

It is with great sadness that the McInnes family announces the passing of Hector MCINNES/MCINNIS on Tuesday, March 18, 2008. Born in Halifax, he was the eldest son of the late Donald MCINNES/MCINNIS and Betty (ROWAN- LEGG.)

He was called to the Nova Scotia Bar in September 1957 and began the practice of law with McInnes Cooper as the firm's third generation McInnes. Hector proudly built upon the legacy of his father, Donald MCINNES/MCINNIS, and his grandfather, Hector MCINNES/MCINNIS, for forty years, devoting his whole career to the firm and its clients. Hector was a gifted corporate and commercial lawyer, and his advice was much sought after by companies large and small, local and international in scope. His contribution was significant with his effort spent developing the economic cornerstones of the Province of Nova Scotia. He was appointed Counsel to the firm in 1994. Hector was always an active member of the legal community, as a member of the Canadian Bar Association and the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society. He also contributed his experience to many volunteer organizations, serving as President of the Halifax Young Men's Christian Association, President of Symphony Nova Scotia, Chairman of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and Vice President of Neptune Theatre. Hector served as a director and officer of numerous Canadian corporations. He was a member of St. Matthew's United Church, the Halifax Club, Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, Ashburn Golf Club and Chester Yacht Club.

SMITH, Margaret " Peggy" Emily (née BRAY)
Margaret (Peggy) Emily SMITH (née BRAY) passed away on April 11th, 2008 in Kitchener in her 92nd year. Beloved wife of the late Richard Routledge SMITH; adored mother of Charles, Peter (Nicolina,) Steven (Shirley) and Richard (Sarah); dear sister to Molly and much loved by grandchildren Christopher and Kevin (mother Geri), Michael, Courtney, Derek, Lindsey, Matthew and Sophia and family friend Tisha. Born in Ipswich, England during the First World War, Peggy lived her life against the backdrop of some of the major events of the 20th century. The presence of large numbers of U.S. and British servicemen in Ipswich during the Second World War meant that Peggy and Molly were never short of dance partners on one memorable occasion, a Lancaster bomber was sent to pick them up and take them to a ball at a distant airbase! Always beautiful, charming, stylish and gracious, Peggy had plenty of admirers, but it wasn't until she met Richard, a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy, that she found her match - and thus began a love story that crossed continents, lasted decades and produced a 'family of Friends' spanning generations. Whether doing volunteer work with the many organizations she supported; travelling through Asia, Africa, Europe and South America; or enjoying time with Friends and neighbours, Peggy's grace, charm and genuine warmth drew in all who met her, and created long-lasting and deep Friendships. Peggy's greatest joy and commitment in life was to her family and Friends. Until the very end, she was able to connect with every one, young and old, making each feel special, understood and above all, cherished. She was the foundation that supported us, with a love of life and a wisdom that inspired us all and kept drawing us back to her, to seek her views, her guidance, or just her wonderful company. She will be missed. Memorial service will take place on Tuesday, April 15th at 1: 30 p.m. at David MacLeod Funeral Home, 617 King St. North, Waterloo to be followed by a reception at Willowells at 40 Blue Springs Drive, Waterloo. In lieu of flowers, donations to the WaterlooWellington Community Care Access Centre would be appreciated.

OSBURN, Muriel Jarvis (née SINCLAIR)
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Muriel OSBURN (née SINCLAIR) on April 12th, 2008 at the age of 92 years.
Muriel Jarvis SINCLAIR was born in Toronto on April 3rd, 1916. She attended Branksome Hall in Toronto, and spent her summers in Algonquin Park at Camp Tanamakoon.

In 1943 Muriel enlisted with the Canadian Army as a Nursing Sister with the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. She was posted oversees at the No 24 Canadian General Hospital in Surrey, England. One of her patients was Major Fred TILSON who lost both legs in action and he requested Muriel accompany him in his wheelchair to Buckingham Palace when King George V awarded him the Victoria Cross.
In 1945, Muriel volunteered to join the Canadian Army of Occupation in Germany as a nursing sister and was stationed near Oldenburg. It was here that she met William OSBURN who was also serving with the Canadian Army. When discharged in 1946, Bill and Muriel returned to Canada and were married in Toronto on June 14th, 1947. They settled in West Vancouver, British Columbia and resided there for many years, raising two children. Upon Bill's retirement in 1977, they moved to Salt Spring Island, first residing on Sunset Drive and moving to Brinkworthy Estates in 1990. For the past two years, Muriel has been a resident of Lady Minto Hospital and the concern and support of the caring staff has been much appreciated by the family.
Muriel always enjoyed nursing and was on the staff when Greenwoods Care Facility first opened. Upon her retirement, she volunteered with the Thrift Shop and Seniors for Seniors and enjoyed evenings with Friends at the local Legion.
Muriel was predeceased by her husband of 57 years, Bill, in 2004.

PACE, Elizabeth Deans " Betty" (née WAUGH)
(July 6, 1921-April 20, 2008)
Peacefully slipped away after a valiant fight against Leukemia, on Sunday, April 20, 2008, at Victoria Hospital, London. Loving wife of the late Doctor W.E. PACE. R.N. Winnipeg Class of '45, Mother of 6, Genealogist, Abstract Artist and fascinating friend to many. Betty lived her 86 years of life on this earth to the fullest with spirit, fire and great style and will live forever in the hearts of her children, grandchildren and great-grand_son: Anne and Harry WALKER of Burlington with children Jennifer and husband Steven SMITH (and young son William,) Lindsay and David; Captain John and Sheilagh PACE of Richmond, British Columbia with children Jessica and Kaitlin; Doctor Ron and Ellen PACE of Waterloo with children Michael and Alison; Mary (PACE) and Roy FRENCH of Toronto with son Alex (PACE) and daughters Jennifer and Katie; Allan PACE and Lin WARD of Orangeville with son Taylor; and Carla Louise PACE of Vancouver. Cherished sister of the late Richard WAUGH and his wife Pat, cousin to Alex WAUGH and his partner Jerry DEE, and Pat (WAUGH) ETTER of Arizona, and much loved Aunt to her many WAUGH nieces and nephews. Born in Antwerp, Belgium, Betty moved with her family back to Winnipeg where her forefathers pioneered the Red River Settlement. It was there that Betty graduated as an R.N. and where she met and married the love of her life, Bill PACE. They settled in London, Ontario and enjoyed the summers in Muskoka, autumn canoe trips in Algonquin Park, and their beloved Lake Kawagama camp. Together they founded a family of nature-lovers, bird watchers, driftwood walkers, amateur biologists, paddlers and all with just a touch of Betty's unique perspective on the natural world. Throughout her life Betty steeped herself in the history and mystique of her pioneering past and, thanks to her love of genealogy, all of her children shared in the dramatic stories of their collective past through the WAUGH / MOWAT line. Betty was the consummate letter writer and her distinctive cursive handwriting on weekly letters will be missed by many. Always creative, a true turning point for Betty was attending H.B. Beal art classes and becoming part of a devoted group of art aficionados. The creative freedom of abstraction in watercolour, oils and acrylic was perfect for expressing her passionate spirit. She loved colour and her many works showed off her bold dramatic flair. She approached her art as she did her life, with great zest and energy, and right to the end rose to the challenge of one last small canvas with her signature theme, a graceful swan. Betty's passionate temperament fueled her vibrant art, her approach to gardening, baking and cooking, and also her fierce love and concern for her husband, family, Friends and neighbours. She had her own sense of style, whether in the kitchen, the garden or at a party, loved hats and fine shoes, and spread a lifetime of joy with her beautiful smile. Friends may call on Friday, April 25 from 7-9 p.m. at the James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 Saint_James Street at Richmond, London, where the funeral service will be conducted on Saturday, April 26, at 2 p.m. As flowers of all types were a focus in her life and art, floral tributes are always appreciated by Betty and her family, or a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, 480 University Avenue, Suite 1502, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1V2.

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Margaret Anne (née HORNE)
After a brief, but valiant fight, Margie succumbed to the devastating effects of cancer on May 11, 2008 at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.
The family is deeply grateful to all the oncology, clinical research and palliative care teams for the compassionate and thoughtful care Margie received while at Sunnybrook.
Margie is survived by her beloved husband Peter, her sons David (Joanne DE VISSER) and Ian, and her cherished grandchildren Erin and Callum THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
Born in Montreal, Margie was the elder daughter of the late Marjorie Frances HORNE (née SMITH) and the late David Ross HORNE, and leaves her sister Janet HAWKE (Earl) of Pointe Claire and her many nieces and nephews.
Margie's love of her family, her passion for sport and her commitment to her community, like her beloved Orford Lake, ran deep. An avid and accomplished athlete, Margie was always on-the-go whether it was over to the tennis or badminton courts in Leaside, on the ski hills of the Eastern Townships and Jay Peak, or in recent years, chasing a little white ball all over Ontario and Quebec. Slow was not in Margie's vocabulary, and her passion for action burns brightly in her children and grandchildren.
Margie was also a very active volunteer in her Leaside community. Recently at her bedside, she was honoured for her 35 years as a volunteer at the Bloorview Kids Rehab centre. She also canvassed extensively for worthy causes such as the Salvation Army and Canadian Cancer Society. Margie could be counted on to support her sons' and grandchildren's school functions, as well as various neighbourhood events. For many of these functions, Margie could always depend on her extended circle of Friends to lend a hand in these endeavours. Over the years, her Friends really became more like family.
The family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, Margie's memory will be honoured through Tribute donations to the Bloorview Kids Foundation, 150 Kilgour Road, Toronto, Ontario M4G 1R8 or www.bloorview.ca.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial gathering for family and Friends will be held on May 20, 2008 at 11 a.m. at Leaside United Church, followed by reception at the Church.

BUCHANAN, David William, Q.C.
(January 14, 1942-May 18, 2008)
(Vancouver) David was born in Bristol, England. His earliest school years took place in Scotland, England and Wales, with one year in Lebanon and part of a year with a tutor in Syria. The majority of his primary education was at Hurst Grange Boys Boarding School, Sterling, Scotland. During these formative years, he spent holidays, in places such as Nigeria, visiting with his parents who were stationed internationally, working on various engineering projects. When David was 12, he immigrated with his parents, to Canada whereupon he attended Upper Canada College and later The University of British Columbia, obtaining his Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Law in 1966. David articled at the prestigious law firm of Clark Wilson LLP in Vancouver, where he became a partner, enjoying a successful career in the litigation department, practicing employment law, gaming law, family law, and intellectual property. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1983. As well, David took pride in providing leadership in training and mentoring in his field. His practice lasted for 42 years, until days before he passed. As a volunteer, David served on the Board of Trustees of Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre for 13 years, acting as Chairman for one year. He was a former President of The Vancouver Bar Association; a former director of the Legal Services Society of British Columbia; former Chair, Law Day of British Columbia; former member, National Judiciary Committee, Canadian Bar Association and a member of the International Commission of Jurists. From his university days, he remained a member of the Psi Upsilon Fraternity and the Annual Gardy Frost Steelhead Fishing Group. He was also a member of the University Club and subsequently, The Vancouver Club. If law was his life-long profession, then fishing was his passion. David's pursuit of trout, salmon, dorado, marlin, sailfish, and bonefish took him throughout Canada, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, and Hawaii. Two special hobbies David enjoyed were reading and philately, which brought him quiet times and fulfilled his vast interest in history. David was part of a very close and loving family, he was predeceased by his father, Rae BUCHANAN; and is survived by his mother, Olive Buchanan SMITH; his wife, Patty RANDALL; his daughter, Laura KEARNES, her husband Russell; his son, Adam; his daughter, Kate and his two grandchildren, Quinlan and Veronica KEARNES. David's remarkable courage and strength and his incredibly positive attitude after his diagnosis with esophageal cancer, gave both him and his family an extra year and a half of quality life, full of family gatherings, further travel and laughter. In lieu of flowers donations may be sent to: The Nature Trust Of British Columbia, #260 - 1000 Roosevelt Crescent, North Vancouver, British Columbia V7P 3R4; www.naturetrust.bc.ca David's family invites his colleagues and Friends to join them in honoring David's life at The Vancouver Club (valet parking will be available at the back of the Club), in The Grand Ballroom, Wednesday May 28 at 2: 00 P.M.

GROOME, Agnes Jean (née MILLS)
Passed away peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Hospital in Toronto on May 30, 2008. She was born November 5, 1918 on the family farm near Fleming, Saskatchewan. Eldest daughter of Sam and Isabelle MILLS, Agnes was predeceased by her husband Leslie Jaquest GROOME, her parents, her sister Ivy SMITH, brothers-in-law Paul GROOME, Al SMITH, Bob SMITH, and sister-in-law Iris MILLS. She is survived by her brother Reuben MILLS, her sister Isabelle MILLS, daughters Jean COOPERBERG (Peter), Ruth KURTZ, Mary KAINER (Michael), seven grandchildren Ruthie SHUGARMAN (Danny,) Michael COOPERBERG, Daniel KURTZ (Martina SORBARA), Thiago KURTZ (Andrea BREEN), Anton KAINER, Leah KAINER and Lindsay KAINER, and her 3 great-grandchildren Talia and Cooper SHUGARMAN and Francesca KURTZ. Also important to her were nieces Gae MILLER, Vivian PALSSON, Ariel GROOME and nephews Alan MILLS and Byron MILLS (deceased) and their families. Dr. Reverend Agnes GROOME was a woman of remarkable energy and organizational skills. An accomplished educator and minister, she was highly educated, earning seven degrees in seven decades (B.A., B.Ed., B.Div., M.A., M.Ed., Ph.D., M.Div.). Involved in life-long learning, she took her last course at the University of Regina at the age of 88. Her teaching positions included Central Collegiate (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan), Martin and Sheldon Williams Collegiate (Regina, Saskatchewan), University of Regina, and University of Toronto. Her church postings included mission fields in rural Saskatchewan, Saint_James United Church (Regina), Grace Church in Moose Jaw, St. Andrew's (Toronto), Silverthorne (Toronto), and a short locum in Ft. Qu'appelle. A woman ahead of her time, St. Andrew's College refused her ordination and her name was struck from the roster of graduates because she had married and was expecting her first child. Agnes always took a leadership role in community organizations including the Young Women's Christian Association, United Nations Association, University Women's Club, Health Research Board, Saskatchewan Pension Committee, New Democratic Party (candidate in Wascana), plus many church positions including Sunday School Superintendent, Elder (first female in position at Lakeview United Church). Agnes was honoured to have been appointed by the government of Saskatchewan to the Cluff Lake Inquiry into uranium development. As recent as two years ago, Agnes embarked on a project to have stained glass windows honouring women in the Bible installed in Lakeview United Church. As part of her dedication to education in Saskatchewan, Agnes established several scholarship funds at the University of Regina in the names of her husband Les GROOME, her brother-in-law Paul GROOME, her parents Sam and Isabelle, and plus made a generous donation to the University of Regina establishing the Groome family fellowship in health research. Agnes and Les were a remarkable team; through all their studies, travels, and endeavours they loved and supported each other. Agnes was a true matriarch in her family. She was the driving force behind family projects; everyone was expected to be onboard and involved. She could do anything and did -- wire a home, build a stone fence, shingle a roof, install floors and siding, build furniture, sew, even bake 12 pies at a time. Agnes tackled everything with passion, including stamp collecting, family tree research (four volumes), and land development. Foreign travels were opportunities to study history and were fodder for lectures. Widowed at 62, she then earned a new degree, and embarked on a new career in a new city. Beloved by her grandchildren, she encouraged them in all their varied interests. Later in life she took great pleasure in building a new home (at age 80) and planting 900 perennials on Pasqua Lake. She knew Canada well as she moved many times: from Fleming to Brandon, Saskatoon, Regina, Dunnville, Guelph, Clinton, Vancouver, Moose Jaw, Regina, and Toronto. Funeral will be held on Thursday, June 5, 2008, 2 p.m., at Wesley United Church, 3913 Hillsdale Street, Regina. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 4, 6-7: 30 p.m. at Speers Funeral Chapel 2136 College Avenue, Regina.

Commemorating the tragedy that history forgot
The water was calm when officers set out for a Lake Simcoe patrol on June 7, 1958. But a hellish storm swept through that night, taking five lives in the worst single-incident death toll in Royal Canadian Mounted Police history
By Barry WARD, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page A12
It was the largest single-incident loss of life in the 135-year history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which stretches from the skirmishes of the Northwest Rebellion to the slaying of four officers near Mayerthorpe, Alberta.
But history has largely forgotten five officers who drowned 50 years ago this weekend on a stormy Lake Simcoe night in what should have been a routine patrol of the "dry" Georgina Island Indian Reserve. As with recent Royal Canadian Mounted Police tragedies, the officers were young - four had less than two years of service - and the ensuing controversy reached Parliament Hill. The incident led to changes in Canada's boating regulations.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police will take a step toward rectifying the oversight with a ceremony at the Newmarket detachment tomorrow. Family members of the dead Mounties are expected to attend, along with the last living member from that ill-fated patrol on June 7, The deaths still haunt Murray SMITH, 69, now retired and living in Victoria Harbour, Ontario In a last-minute decision, Mr. SMITH gave up his seat in the boat to another officer.
"I think about it an awful lot," Mr. SMITH said. "I've had a lot of close calls but never that close. It makes cold chills go up your back."
Two weeks after graduating from training, Mr. SMITH was part of a team patrolling the lake in a 14-foot, cedar-strip boat with a 35-horsepower outboard motor. The officers made several arrests for liquor infractions. After supper, the Mounties decided to make one more run from Paradise Beach, west of Jackson's Point.
"I was in the boat, the motor was started and, for some reason, a member came down to the dock and walked right up to the boat and said, 'Smitty, you've been in the boat all afternoon, how about letting me go?' Well, it didn't matter to me, so I got out and he got in and I pushed the boat off and went back up and sat in the police car all night."
That was about 10: 30 p.m., and the lake was calm. After midnight, "a hell of a storm" swept through the area. Mr. SMITH and another Mountie, Ron McDONALD, began to worry. "We kept saying, 'They'd be on land by now, they should be okay.' But we couldn't understand why they didn't call us on the radio."
Mr. SMITH and Mr. McDONALD went to a nearby marina for help. A search party headed out at first light, quickly finding the boat, submerged except for its bow, running lights still on. They also discovered the body of Corporal Herbert SMART, 33, of Toronto, the officer in charge. It was apparent he had been trying to get into a life jacket.
Constables Glen FAROUGH, 22, of Stockton, Manitoba, Maurice MELNYCHUK, 21, of Prince George, British Columbia, David PERRY, 19, of North Burnaby, British Columbia and George RANSOM, 21, of Melville, Saskatchewan., were missing. All were good swimmers, but little hope was given for their survival. None was wearing a life jacket and the water temperature was determined to be 11 degrees on the surface and much colder a few feet down.
After the accident, justice minister Davie FULTON defended the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the House of Commons, saying all rules were followed, the boat had the necessary equipment and was not overloaded. However, a few days later it was brought to his attention that the maximum load for 14-foot boats was 740 pounds, and the five officers weighed a total of 860 pounds.
Within two weeks, before the lake had given up another body (all eventually were found), an inquest was under way at the town hall in Pefferlaw, Ontario, newly painted for the occasion. It included a re-enactment of the patrol with five similar-sized men in the recovered boat. When the men jumped into the water, none of them could use the standard life jackets and cushions. The five-member jury concluded that the boat was likely swamped by 1.4-metre waves, perhaps when one of the fuel tanks ran dry. The jury also found the boat was overcrowded and overloaded, the standard life jackets and cushions were unsatisfactory in emergencies and the metal plaque listing the boat's capacity at 950 pounds was ambiguous.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police officials testified they believed the weight to exclude the boat's motor, which weighed 129 pounds. Officials from the government, boat manufacturers and boating groups said the motor was included, although they agreed the wording was subject to different interpretations. The five Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers also had about 100 pounds of equipment on board.
By the last day of June, Mr. FULTON had told the Commons he would implement the jury's recommendations, including new rules to clarify capacity. On July 1, the Transport Department announced new wording for load-warning plaques, making it clear the specified weight limit included everything in the boat, including motor, gear and people.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced it would set up a board to examine the risks of water patrols. A week later, the last body, that of Constable RANSOM, washed up on shore.
A memorial service was held on Georgina Island that September. The incident then disappeared into history. Corporal Marc LaPorte, an Royal Canadian Mounted Police media relations officer, said the initiative to mark the 50th anniversary came from the force retirees association.
"Why it took 50 years, I'm not sure," Cpl. LaPorte said. "Most people are unaware of it."
The event will begin at 11 a.m., when a plaque will be unveiled. Mr. SMITH will be there, reading Psalm 46, which refers to troubled water. He is glad the deaths are finally receiving some recognition.
"We lost four members in Mayerthorpe, Alberta., and the media picked up that that was the worst tragedy that had ever happened," Mr. SMITH said.
"Although the four members were shot, I can't think of a more tragic death than drowning in ice-cold water in the middle of the night."
Mr. SMITH spent 32 years in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, retiring as a staff sergeant from the Hamilton detachment. He has a son and daughter who are police officers.
In a final twist, Mr. SMITH ended up being posted to Orillia to replace one of the dead officers, where one of his duties was patrolling Lake Simcoe. "I used that boat for the next two years," he said.

Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Colleen attended both Holy Rosary Elementary School and Marion High School, and will be remembered as a Provincial champion athlete in badminton. Graduating from the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Montreal, Colleen began her studies at Newton College of the Sacred Heart in Boston, Massachusetts in the late 60's. This is where she met her life long best friend Leslie TALBOT, who walked beside Colleen in the last months of her brave journey. An intrepid traveller, Colleen lived and studied in India, New Zealand and Hawaii. In 1977 she married Mr. Leo SMITH of San Francisco. They ran a successful storage company together in Lahaina, Maui for several years until Leo's passing. Colleen then continued her studies in China in 1983, and the Dominican University of San Rafael in Marin County, California in 1984. She was a natural teacher, a gifted holistic health practitioner and a passionate lover of people. Anyone who had the privilege of knowing Colleen will miss her genuine interest in their lives, her sage repartee, and advise (given freely), and her sparkling sense of humour. The family extends special thanks to Colleen's many devoted Friends… and our heartfelt thanks goes to The Hospice of San Diego and especially to Doctor Roger Strong and all the angel caregivers. Prayers for Colleen are at 4: 00 p.m. on Sunday, June 8 at Mother of Confidence Church at 3131 Governor Drive, San Diego, California.

Facing fraud rap, United Way official commits suicide
Executive was confronted with evidence she embezzled at least $600,000 from a previous employer, charity's president confirms
By Timothy APPLEBY and Elizabeth CHURCH, Page A10
A senior United Way of Greater Toronto executive committed suicide last month after being confronted with evidence she embezzled at least $600,000 from a previous employer, United Way president Frances LANKIN confirmed last night.
Janet DONIO, the local United Way's vice-president for informational services and operational change management, died while under investigation for her activities at the Council of Ontario Universities, a lobby group where she worked for six years as chief information officer.
As well, Ms. DONIO's chief academic credentials - a Canadian university degree and a PhD from the United States - were found to be bogus, Ms. LANKIN said.
The irregularities were uncovered by the Deloitte and Touche accounting firm and involved the payment of funds - said to be between $600,000 and $700,000 - for services never produced, and which instead were allegedly being siphoned off by Ms. DONIO.
The story began to emerge in March after the Council of Ontario Universities hired someone to fill Ms. DONIO's old position.
"We found pretty clear evidence of fraud," said chief executive officer Paul GENEST, stressing that no other individuals appear to have been involved. Nor were any improprieties uncovered in a second Deloitte and Touche audit at the United Way, which hired Ms. DONIO in February, 2007.
The Council of Ontario Universities gets some government funds, but most of its revenue derives from levies paid by the universities it represents and it will be seeking to recoup its losses from its insurer, Mr. GENEST said.
When Deloitte and Touche began unearthing irregularities, Toronto police fraud investigators were notified, but they were awaiting completion of the audit and apparently never interviewed Ms. DONIO, Ms. LANKIN said.
On the day the United Way was told of the allegation, - May 5 - Ms. LANKIN and chief operating officer Catherine SMITH met with Ms. DONIO, 56, and told her she was being placed on a paid leave while the investigation continued.
"It was a difficult conversation," Ms. LANKIN recounted.
She and Ms. SMITH then drove Ms. DONIO home to her west-end Toronto house, where she was found dead the next day.
A coroner's report said the cause of death was "undetermined," according to a family account relayed to Ms. LANKIN.
As for Ms. DONIO's phony academic credentials - a degree from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and a doctorate in cognitive science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - it appears that the Council of Ontario Universities did not check them.
Neither did the United Way, relying instead on character references from the council and another former employer, Ms. LANKIN said.
"Those credentials weren't critical to the job we hired her for, so we didn't check them."
The United Way of Greater Toronto was established in 1956 and supports a network of 200 health and social service agencies. Last year it raised a record $108.1-million.
Ms. DONIO's previous experience included a stint at TVO, as creative director of educational television, and at the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs, where she was an assistant director.
A member of the Biinjitiwaabik Zaaging Anishinaabek Band, whose home is on the shores of Lake Nipigon in Northern Ontario, Ms. DONIO is survived by two adult sons, Jason and Robyn DONIO. Her former husband, Marcel DONIO, is a justice of the peace in Thunder Bay.
Financially, Ms. DONIO's affairs appeared unremarkable at the time of her death. In February, 2006, she purchased her house in west Toronto's Junction area, for $540,000, and in January of this year she remortgaged the property for just over $523,000.
"Jan DONIO was a respected and admired member of the United Way team," the United Way said in a statement. " We grieve her loss and the difficulty faced by her family."

Family, Friends mourn loss of 'gentle spirit'
Music, memories grace celebration of 25-year-old shooting victim's short but full life
By Sarah BOESVELD, Page A11
Friends and family used music and memories yesterday to say goodbye to Dylan ELLIS, a young man lauded as a fiercely devoted friend, brother and son at his memorial service yesterday.
A pencil sketch of a grinning Mr. ELLIS rested amid a smattering of framed photos at the sanctuary of Rosedale United Church during the memorial service.
A photo slideshow depicted the 25-year-old Mr. ELLIS and his Friends at play. Stories shared by 16 of Mr. ELLIS's loved ones drew periodic laughter from the nearly 500 guests crammed into the pews and hallways of the church.
Mr. ELLIS was shot dead early Friday morning while waiting in a Range Rover for a friend to return a set of keys. His best friend, Oliver MARTIN, 25, was also fatally shot and will be remembered in a service this afternoon.
The violent crime shook the city and surprised many who struggle to understand why the young men from Rosedale were killed in a brand of crime associated with neighbourhoods much different from their own.
Mourners heard yesterday that Mr. ELLIS's favourite food was a plain bagel soaked in Tabasco sauce. His favourite place to be was with the Friends he loved like family.
Friend Graham SMITH imagined Mr. ELLIS up in heaven "with his right arm around Jimi Hendrix and his left around his long-time crush, Audrey Hepburn."
Cody ELLIS sobbed as he described his older brother and fellow guitar player as a role model and best friend.
"You taught me how to be a good person," he said, addressing his brother directly.
Akasha ELLIS remembered his little brother's sparkling eyes and his calm, yet energetic, presence in their family.
Mr. ELLIS's girlfriend, Caitlin BROWN, said the last thing he told her was that he wanted them to grow old together.
"I wanted that more than anything," Ms. BROWN said through tears. "Your gentle spirit was taken from us in such a violent way."
The circumstances of Mr. ELLIS's death were rarely mentioned in the service.
Friends and family hunched in the pews in front of a sanctuary adorned by a weathered pair of shoes and a scuffed surfboard. A white electric guitar was plugged into an amplifier, as if waiting to be played.
A recording of Foxglove, an acoustic Bruce Cockburn song, serenaded the crowd as they sat in silence exchanging hugs and wiping away tears while watching a video slideshow featuring a smiling Mr. ELLIS.
The tricks behind his mischievous grin were also talked and laughed about during the service. Long-time friend Ben McPHEE remembered Mr. ELLIS for his playful demeanour. He recalled a paint fight instigated by Mr. ELLIS one summer when he was working as a house painter.
"I think it's safe to say every girl that met him had a crush on him," said Katie PETRIW, a close friend of Mr. ELLIS's sister, Kiri. "And if you didn't it was because the girl next to you had."
She recalled how Mr. ELLIS used to chase her around his house with a forkful of tuna after discovering she loathed the smell, taste and touch of the stuff.
A lone can of tuna rested at the scene of the crime yesterday. The sidewalk outside the condominium at Richmond and Niagara Streets where the two men were gunned down is still lined with flowers and notes, now starting to brown and wilt in the sun. A police command post and flyers begging for information also remain.
Residents of the complex held a community meeting last night to discuss how to tackle the recent violence in and around their neighbourhood.
Police have ruled nothing out and are still digging for clues while they consider a YouTube campaign and a reward posting to help find the suspect, described as a black man with a light complexion who rode away on a bike.

HILL, Frederick Walter Hembling
Born September 2, 1920, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 13, 2008 at his home in Regina, Saskatchewan. Third son of the late Walter A. HILL and Grace E. HILL, Mr. HILL was predeceased by his brothers, James, Edward and Robert; by his beloved wife Margaret 'Shirley' (MULVIHILL) HILL; and most recently his daughter, Colleen Hill SMITH. Mr. HILL leaves to cherish his memory his children, Paul (Carol) HILL, Regina, Saskatchewan; Terrence HILL, Vancouver, British Columbia; Daniel (Anne) HILL, England; and Marylyn (Jack) HORSMAN, Windfield, British Columbia. He will also be remembered as their beloved Patriarch to his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, along with their families - Rosanne Hill BLAISDELL, Shannon HILL, Matthew HILL, Jan YANKO, Kathryn HILL; James HILL, Conor HILL, Patrick HILL, Joseph HILL; Danielle BEARS, Jonathon HORSMAN, Andrea LEFEBVRE, Stephen HORSMAN; and Mia HILL. He left us all a gift of Faith… 'that those who have lived in love, never see each other for the last time'. Born in Regina, Fred attended Lakeview Public School, Campion High School, and the University of Saskatchewan (B.A.). While attending the Harvard Business School in 1942, Fred joined the U.S. Army Air Force piloting B-17 Flying Fortress Bombers, serving in the 15th Air Force in Italy and the 8th Air Force in England. For unflinching service he received the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal with Three Oak Leaf Clusters. Upon graduating with distinction from Harvard with an MBA in 1947, Fred returned to his home province of Saskatchewan to join his father in The Hill Companies real estate and insurance business. He developed the first private residential sub-division in Saskatchewan (Hillsdale) since the 1920's. He also participated in the first light sweet crude discovery oil well in Creelman, Saskatchewan. Fred's entrepreneurial skill and business judgment were revered by all those who knew him. Subsequently he became a director of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Chairman and Director of Harvard Developments Inc. (A Hill Company), Harvard Energy (Calgary, Alberta), Western Surety Company, Harvard Investments Inc. (Phoenix, Arizona), Harvard Broadcasting, and for years he considered it an honour to serve as a member of the Papal Foundation in Rome. A man of big stature, gifted with a laser intellect and a legendary humour, Fred enjoyed reminiscing and a rousing debate. He read voraciously, loved people to the extreme and was a fully involved citizen of our world. But in his quieter hours he practiced a private and direct empathy for the vulnerable amongst us. We heard him often say… 'it is far better to err on the side of generosity'. He was a Christian profoundly dedicated to his Faith. Following the death of Msgr. Athol Murray (1976), and at the request of the Board of Regents, Fred picked up the torch from his life-long mentor 'Père', to carry on the work at Notre Dame College in Saskatchewan. From that point on, Fred maintained a life-long commitment to help young students achieve their total potential in mind, body and spirit at Notre Dame. In addition, he personally dedicated his time and resources to helping countless individuals from around the world to attain their educational and spiritual goals. Many of these people were entirely unknown to his family. He was passionately dedicated to supporting Catholic and numerous other charities. In the mid 80's he assisted Mother Teresa's work in Canada. Fred proudly became a member of the Order of Canada in 1986 and was also a recipient of the Saskatchewan Order of Merit, the Canada 125 Medal, the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal and the Cross of Merit Sovereign Military Order of Malta. Most recently he was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great by Pope Benedict XVI. And now in the words of Grant Harvey eulogizing FDR… 'there will forever more be an empty place against the sky'. The body will lie in repose at Holy Rosary Cathedral, 3125 13th Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan on Wednesday, July 16, 2008 from 7: 00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for private prayers. Funeral service will be held on Thursday, July 17th at 11: 00 a.m. at Holy Rosary Cathedral, 3125 13th Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan followed by a U.S. Air Force Honour Guard ceremony at the Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery, 815 Assiniboine Ave. E. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Speers Funeral Chapel, Regina, Saskatchewan. The Hill family has requested that all Friends and colleagues wishing to celebrate Fred's memory make a donation to the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame, Box 100, Wilcox, Saskatchewan, S0G 5E0, c/o Mr. David Kenney.

Innocent shooting victim 'worked hard'
By Michele HENRY and Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporters with files by Joanna SMITH, Donovan VINCENT and Tonda MacCHARLES.
Tomorrow would have been his last day on the job.
Hou Chang MAO, the city's second innocent victim of gun violence in a week, was days away from ending his tenure in the fruit and vegetable department of Fu Yao Supermarket when he was killed by a stray bullet Thursday night. MAO was stacking oranges on a display outside the Gerrard St. E. store when he was caught in the crossfire of a gun battle waged by two warring groups.
Described as honest, the kind of man who would pick only the nicest fruit for his customers, MAO 47, had worked at the small but busy market in the heart of Chinatown east for about two years -- ever since immigrating to Canada from Fuqing, a small coastal town in China.
He quit earlier this week, a family friend said yesterday. The father of two had agreed to stay until tomorrow due to his boss's pleadings.
MAO quit because he didn't like working outside in the cold, said the friend, who stopped by the family's home last night and did not want to be named. "He was a very good person. He worked hard and was kind to everyone. It's unbelievable "
Late yesterday evening, just feet from where MAO was struck, his younger brother met with local members of the Fuqing community to discuss funeral arrangements.
Hou Tan MAO talked privately with about 10 others, in an inner room at Fu Yao. He was appealing to people from his hometown on behalf of MAO's children, Zuo Xi, 22, and Yun Yam, 18, who both immigrated to Canada in the past two years and lived with their father in a house that sources said the father recently purchased. Friends said MAO's wife lives in China.
"They are really devastated," Jack LI, president of the Fuqing Association of Canada, said of the siblings while at Fu Yao last night for the discussion. "It's a really, really big surprise to us. It's a shock."
LI said he will post a plea in Chinese newspapers calling for help for the family of Toronto's third homicide victim of 2008.
A bouquet of flowers tied to a pole outside the store, and bullet holes in cars and on buildings on the north and south sides of Gerrard, are reminders of the shooting.
People ducked for cover as the bullets flew, but MAO was struck in the torso. He staggered toward the brightly lit entrance of the store where he worked and collapsed. He died later in Saint Michael's Hospital.
While no weapons have been recovered, police said they found two types of bullet casings at the scene of the shooting, which began amid the dinnertime rush of shoppers, around 6 p.m. Officers are searching for two male witnesses: seen leaving the scene shortly after the gun battle in a silver car with a shiny round grille.
Homicide Det. Pauline GRAY/GREY said police have more than 100 hours of surveillance tape to go through and appealed for witnesses: especially the two men, who are not considered suspects -- to come forward.
It's the second such murder in Toronto in less than a week. John O'KEEFE, 42, a father of one, was shot last weekend as he walked past the Brass Rail tavern on Yonge Street, just south of Bloor St. Two men have been charged with first-degree murder.
Even though last month Brian RAYBOULD, head of Toronto's homicide squad, suggested the chances of being a homicide victim are minute if you're not engaged in a criminal lifestyle, politicians yesterday called for a handgun ban.
Mayor David Miller toured the area yesterday morning and said he plans to ask Michael Wilson, Canada's ambassador to the U.S., for his assistance and will meet Monday with Ontario's new Attorney General, Chris Bentley.
"One of the items on the agenda will be handguns and how we can work together -- the province and the city of Toronto -- to deal with this issue," Miller said yesterday. Miller and Premier Dalton McGuinty want Ottawa to ban handguns.
The federal Tories say that won't address the "real problem."
"Handguns are already extremely tightly controlled," Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day said in a written statement.
Irrespective of calls for a ban, Insp. Peter YUEN of 55 Division, which includes the Gerrard strip, said the area is peaceful, not "crime-ridden," and still a safe place to shop, live and work. "This is a very rare occurrence," he said.

ASHENHURST, Robert Carl
(April 5, 1918-March 8, 2008)
Carl left us just before he celebrated his 90th birthday. Predeceased by his loving and devoted wife, Rita (née THRASHER) and by his treasured daughter, Jane (Charlie), his passing has left a hole in the hearts of his son John and his wife Brooke MILLS of Surrey, British Columbia, his daughter Lani and her husband Maurice Kenny, of Stratford, and his son Jim and his wife Lila, of Burlington. Carl is predeceased by his sister, Isabel (GREENWOOD) and her husband Al, and by his brother Robert (Bert) and his wife Thelma. Carl will be sorely missed by his grandchildren, Erin ASHENHURST, Corinn SMITH and her husband Paul, along with their daughters Hayleigh and Makenna, and by his grand_son, Rob. To his nieces and nephews, his great-nieces and nephews and their children, Carl represented a wise, generous, humourous and kind "head of the clan" and he will be long grieved. Carl started life in Goodwood, in Uxbridge Township, Ontario and worked his first paid job at the age of 7, weeding carrots for $0.10 an hour. He was a gifted athlete, excelling particularly in hockey and lacrosse. He started working as a bookkeeper in New Brunswick at the age of 19 and worked his way up through the mining industry to top executive positions in mines such as Heath Steele Mines, Mattagami Lake Mines, Stanley Uranium and Noranda Mines. During this time he helped to raise his family and became a Chartered Accountant. He ended his employment with Noranda as Vice President, Finance. After retiring for a year or so, Carl then started working on the financing of the Blackdome Mine in British Columbia. As President and Chief Executive Officer of Blackdome Mine, he and his team built and brought the gold mine into full production in record time, a culmination of all that he had garnered in his 40+ years in the mining industry of Canada. Carl had a wide circle of close Friends and loved a game of golf, a game of cards and especially a long chin-wag. Most of all Carl loved his family both related and extended. He leaves behind many precious lessons and we absorbed those lessons by his example. Work hard. Play harder. Love hardest. Our sincere thanks to the staff on Kent at Billings Court Manor who eased his journey to the end. Visitation at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street, (one block north of City Hall) Burlington (905-632-3333) on Wednesday from 3-5 and 7-9 p.m., where Funeral Service will be held Thursday, March 13, 2008, at 11: 00 a.m. Interment Springcreek Cemetery, Mississauga.

SMITH, R. Laird, P.Eng
(March 5, 1947-March 12, 2008)
son of Edna and the late W. Charles SMITH passed from this life at home with the same dignity he had carried throughout his life, after a long and devastating illness. Laird is survived by his beloved wife Barbara and his wonderful and treasured sons Jonathon and Craig as well as Craig's wife Andrea. He is also survived by his loving sister Carolyn and her husband David. There are many cousins, nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews who will sadly miss Laird's "Almost True Farm Stories". Laird's career in engineering spanned over 30 years as a consulting engineer with various successful firms including his own. It was a profession that he truly loved. Even when he was really too ill to work, he accepted a position at the Regional Municipality of Halton just to do "pure engineering" as he called it. I hope that those who knew Laird well will remember him fondly for his integrity, dedication, wry wit and spectacular dance moves. Rest well now, Smitty Darling Family and Friends may call at the McKersie-Kocher Funeral Home, 114 Main St. Milton, 905-878-4452, from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday March 15 and 2-4 p.m. and again 7-9 p.m. Sunday March 16. The funeral service will be held in the funeral home chapel on Monday March 17 at 11: 00 a.m. Interment to follow at the Gore Cemetery in Hagersville Ontario, lunch to follow at the Hagersville United Church. Memorial donations to the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital Foundation - Heart Function Clinic, Hagersville United Church and the McMaster University Faculty of Engineering Foundation would be greatly appreciated. Letters of condolence may be left for the family at www.mckersie-kocher.ca

Death ruled homicide
By The Canadian Press, Sat., July 5, 2008
Kitchener -- Police are now treating the death of a 28-year-old woman found in a Kitchener motel room as a homicide.
Waterloo police and paramedics found the body of Nicole SMITS in a room at the Kitchener Motel last Saturday.
Her death was initially deemed suspicious but police didn't confirm foul play until more recently.
Detectives say the results of an autopsy and field work have led them to believe SMITS's death was the result of a homicide.
Police have been appealing to the public for information about SMITS's last days and released a photo yesterday hoping it would trigger the memories of people who saw her during her final hours.
