STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Frances Alma (née CARSON)
Frances Alma STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, beloved wife of the late Neil STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2008 at Extendicare Halton Hills, in her 99th year. Frances was born on December 6, 1909 to Walter and Minnie (MacLEOD) CARSON on the family homestead just outside of Dundalk on the Backline, Proton. On September 13, 1930 she was married to Neil Glenford STEWARD/STEWART/STUART of Shrigley.
Neil and Frances lived on the Stewart family farm from the time of their marriage until 1944, at which time they purchased the nearby farm of Robert BAILEY where they remained until 1969 when they moved to Dundalk in retirement. Neil and Frances worked side-by-side and were well respected farmers in the area.
During that period, Frances and Neil were active participants in the Agricultural Society in Dundalk and together they received an award that acknowledged their contribution. In 2000 Frances received a 30 year certificate for her volunteer service in the community.
Frances was also an active member of the Maple Valley Women's Missionary Society and in 1969 she received a life time achievement certificate and pin. Members of the Women's Missionary Society remained in contact with Frances throughout the remainder of her life.
Frances loved Dundalk and was a well-known and well-loved contributor to the people of the town. Her delicious cooking and her generous nature made it common place for those who were unwell to receive a full chicken dinner for the family or her very delicious date squares or pie.
Frances and Neil had celebrated their sixty-sixth wedding anniversary just prior to Neil's passing, December 31, 1996.
Frances is survived by grand_son, Donald BERRY of Edmonton and Linda BERRY of Georgetown, by great-grandchildren, Dawn and Andrew of Edmonton and by Melissa, Rhonda, Janice and Nadine, all of Alberta, and by a number of great-great-grandchildren also living in Alberta. Frances was predeceased by daughter, Helen DELORES in 1987 and by grand_son, Neil BERRY and brothers Ivan and William CARSON and sisters-in-law Edna and Mary CARSON.
In May 2003 after a period of ill health, Frances moved to Extendicare in Georgetown, where she became a much loved resident and she received constant care and loving attention of nursing/care-giving staff. Upon arrival she was reconnected with her childhood nickname of 'Frankie'. Staff spoke often of her great character and nature and of her desire to continue to do things for herself, which she continued to do until the final week of her life. While Frances moved to Extendicare almost five years ago, her heart remained solidly in Dundalk and she always enjoyed her calls and visits from family and Friends who offered some 'news' of her beloved town.
The funeral was held on January 29, 2008 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk. Long-time friend, Rev. Willis HUNKING was the officiating minister and was capability assisted by his brother, Clarence's granddaughter, Denise; who also beautifully sang three favorite hymns. Acting pallbearers were Jack, Bill and Brad CARSON, Rick MARCH, Joe CLEARY and Donald BELL. Honorary pallbearers included Therese Haverty CLEARY, June and Lesley CARSON, Leaman HUNKING, Cathy MARCH, and Mary EDWARDS, and the Flowerbearer was Calvin LYLE- ASHBY.
Spring internment will be in Badjeros Cemetery.

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.

ASHLEY--In memory of a wonderful Dad, Grandpa and Old Grandpa, Mervin ASHLEY who passed away on July 25, 2007.
One year has gone by and everyday we think of you and miss you
Thank you for all the wonderful memories,
We miss your kindness, thoughtfulness and just being there when we needed someone,
Your little Angels talk of Old Grandpa and miss the jelly beans, they watch your star at night,
Your empty chair still waits at Loco Beanz where so many people came and chatted,
We were so fortunate to have the time we spent with you
All the chats and wonderful things we learned about you over the last few years,
We know that God knew the suffering you were going through and took you to a place of peace,
The horrible hurt of losing you has lessened day by day and is replaced with wonderful memories and a peace in knowing that you are in a better place and free from pain.
We have the hope that we will see you again.
Sadly missed and always loved by Linda, Sharon, Dave, Shannon, Paul, Nicole, Shawn, Faith, Shaylee and Jenna.

John ASHLEY, 77 Athlete
National Hockey League official believed 'nobody ever paid to see a referee work'
By Josh BROWN, Canadian Press; Globe and Mail archives, Page S8
Kitchener, Ontario -- Being an National Hockey League referee could be trying at times, but John ASHLEY never let the crowd get to him.
"My dad's commentary was, 'if they're watching me, they're missing one helluva good game,' his daughter, Kristine BAILEY, recalled. "I think I heard him say that hundreds of times.
"Most people don't like officials. You either love them or hate them. He used to just laugh it off and say it's apart of the game."
Mr. ASHLEY, who was a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, called more than 650 National Hockey League games over the years. Regarded as a tolerant arbiter who was willing to let the game proceed until the childish hacking of the players became a factor, he was fond of saying that "nobody ever paid to see a referee work. The players wanted to play. I'd let them."
Raised in Preston, Ontario, he hit the ice as a youngster and forged a successful hockey career playing for the Toronto Marlies and Guelph Biltmores on the Junior A circuit, before moving on to stints with Pittsburgh and Syracuse in the American Hockey League.
"Then they sold me to Eddie Shore at Springfield, and that's when I quit," he told the late Paul Patton of The Globe and Mail in 1987. After that, he joined a senior hockey club in Stratford, Ontario, "but when the league went broke, I turned to officiating just for something to do. It turned out longer than I expected."
Although a talented player, he had the wisdom to recognize he had better prospects as an official and donned the zebra stripes. He refereed one year in the American and Central leagues, served as a linesman in the National Hockey League for 17 games, and then turned to refereeing in 1959. He soon established himself as one of the most reliable referees in the business.
Mr. ASHLEY refereed 622 regular season games and 58 playoff matchups during his 13-year on-ice career in the National Hockey League. From 1964-72, he worked every Game 7 of the Stanley Cup playoffs a sure sign of respect.
Over the years, he experienced his share of problems. Jack Riley, the general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins, once complained that he called too many penalties against expansion teams; Bill Jennings, the New York Rangers' president, threatened to protest any games he officiated (Mr. Jennings was upset after a Chicago Blackhawk player threw his stick on to the ice to a teammate who had broken his stick, and the referee missed it); in 1969, Red Kelly, then coaching at Pittsburgh, said he was patently biased against expansion teams. To balance all the criticism, Toronto Maple Leafs manager Punch Imlach said Mr. ASHLEY was welcome to handle every Leaf game he wanted.
"Officiating is a one-way street," Mr. ASHLEY said. "Every time a team loses, they blame the referee, but that's a cop-out. When they win, no one remembers who the referee was. Hockey would be in an awful mess if the officials made as many mistakes as the players."
Mr. ASHLEY said he did not know a lot about officiating when he started, "but I had been on the other side of the fence as a player, so I knew how hockey players thought, how they reacted. I was used to all the noise in the rink. When people yelled at me, I'd tell them 'Keep hollering! Come back and bring your Friends. You're paying my salary…' "
As for his prejudice against expansion teams, Mr. ASHLEY said he simply preferred the standard of play to be found in the "original six."
"My God, we had some awful tough players when there were only six teams," he told The Globe's Allen Abel in 1981. "They use the word 'goon' a lot these days, but how could you call players like Ted Lindsay and Fernie Flaman goons when they were getting you 25 goals a year? They knew how to play hockey. Now you've got players, the people are screaming for blood and thunder, and they get 200 minutes in penalties and score five goals all season. Don't you think the people would rather cheer for somebody who could help win a hockey game?"
For all that rough play, he said he never saw anything on the ice that frightened him. "I had the game when Pat Quinn hit Bobby Orr; remember what a big deal they made about that? If it hadn't been Orr, nobody would have said a word. I didn't think it was anything."
Although Mr. Quinn's crunching check during the 1969 playoffs between the Leafs and the Boston Bruins is today regarded as the final blow that did in Mr. Orr's knees, the veteran referee shrugged it off as business as usual: "They talk about violence today… it's just people crying."
At a personal level, Mr. ASHLEY was a fun-loving father who took family members on the road across North America while he worked, in part for the thrill, in part for company. At one game, his daughter Kristine said he asked an usher to keep an eye on her while he worked. "He would say 'watch the game, cheer for everybody and don't tell anybody who you are' " she said. "He was always objective. He liked to watch a good hockey game. He never cared who won or lost. That wasn't his job. He really had a good appreciation for players and officials who were talented."
In 1971, he worked the seventh games of the quarter-final, semi-final and final in the Stanley Cup playoffs. "There's a lot of pressure, but those are the easiest games because players are afraid to make mistakes. The first and third games of a series, the ones that open a building, are the toughest. You get three things out of this business: The satisfaction of knowing that you did a good job, your cheque every payday and the next year when they rehire you."
Mr. ASHLEY retired that same year but remained with the National Hockey League as a talent scout for officials. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981.
John ASHLEY was born in Galt, Ontario, in 1930. He died of heart failure at Saint Mary's Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario, last Saturday. He was 77. He is survived by his wife, June, and by daughter Kristine and son Tom. He also leaves his brother, Doug.
