He was a month short of his 84th birthday. Born in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, on April 6, 1919, Robert was the only child of Dr. Robert Gordon MacLELLAN and Hazel Carré Primrose MacLELLAN. His father died in 1930, and his mother in 1937. An aunt helped his widowed mother raise him. Robert attended local schools and university in Halifax, Nova Scotia, graduating in law from Dalhousie University, Halifax, after World War 2. Robert enlisted in the Canadian Army in 1942 until 1946, as a Lieutenant in the British Columbia Dragoons (the 9th Canadian Armoured Regiment), serving in Italy, Belgium and Holland. He served as General Counsel of the Husky Oil Limited, the parent company with its two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Husky Oil Company, and Husky Oil Canadian Operations, for 35 years, based in Calgary, until he retired in the early l980's. Robert, (his Friends called him 'Bob'), enjoyed the Friendship of his colleagues at Husky Oil and after his retirement, he and others formed a dining club, the Husky Dining Club. It still operates at the Hospitality Inn.A bachelor, he enjoyed life at his Riverdale Avenue bungalow, where he had a large library. A fall and a stroke weakened him five years ago, and he entered Scottish Extendicare on 25th Avenue South West. Due to its imminent closure, Robert was moved to the Colonel Belcher nursing facility in February. Robert came from a distinguished Nova Scotian family. His paternal grandfather, for whom he and his father were named, Robert MacLELLAN, a distinguished educator, was Principal of Pictou Academy from 1889 to 1923. The elder MacLELLAN helped to prepare young minds for the challenges of the 20th century. Pictou Academy, through its principals and graduates had strong links to Dalhousie University.

Robert is survived by several cousins, among them, Janet Maclellan TOOLE of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Judith Ann (MacLELLAN) GIBSON, of Saint John's, Newfoundland, and Ann MacLELLAN of Amherstview, Ontario. His family is greatly indebted to the care-giving services of 'Tip' Pornthip WONGTHONGLUA, whose intelligence, gentleness and devotion were always exceptional, during his stay at Scottish, Colonel Belcher and Rockyview Hospital. A committal service in Nova Scotia will take place in the summer.

JOHNSON, E.D. Julianna "Julie" (née TOOLE) (March 27, 1912 - November 13, 2003)
Julianna (TOOLE) JOHNSON died comfortably and peacefully at Lake of the Woods District Hospital on November 13th, 2003, age 91½, having lived a full and happy life.
Born March 27, 1912 to George and Eleanor TOOLE, she was a lifetime citizen of Kenora except for her upper schooling years in Toronto (Havergal College graduate with the Herbert Mason Gold Medal for high character, 1931; University of Toronto B.A. 1934) and Vancouver (Vancouver General Hospital, R.N. 1938). She married Larry P. JOHNSON (Johnson's Pharmacy 2nd Street,) on June 28th, 1939. They produced 8 children and had a busy, happy 58 years together.
Julianna was predeceased by her parents, her husband L.P. JOHNSON, brother Laurence (Donalda) TOOLE, brother Michael TOOLE, sons Paul JOHNSON in 1952 and Terry JOHNSON in 1996, great-grand_son John WAGENAAR in 2001. She is lovingly remembered and survived by son Larry (Lyn) JOHNSON, Calgary, daughter-in- law Sue JOHNSON, Kenora, daughter Eleanor (Bill) KYLE, Kenora, daughter Mary Pat (Rob) DICKSON/DIXON, Winnipeg, son Bill (Janet) JOHNSON, Winnipeg, daughter Elizabeth/Honey (Tony) JONES, Mississauga, son Kevin (Deborah) JOHNSON, Calgary; grandchildren from Australia to England to the U.S. and all across Canada -- Peter, Tim, Paul and Stephana, Joe and Jaye, Beth, Mark Johnson, Nancy and Kevin WAGENAAR, Rob and Melissa JOHNSON, Larry and Susan KYLE, Shannon and Phil EDGELL, Dave and Dominique, Brad KYLE, Chris, Susie and Billy DICKSON/DIXON, Diane and Eric JOHNSON, Trevor and Evan JONES, Charlie, George, Andy and Julie JOHNSON; great-granddaughters Hailey JOHNSON, Beth WAGENAAR, Ericka EDGELL, Olivia JOHNSON; brother Ned (Anne) TOOLE, Edmonton; sisters-in-law Evelyn INGO and Marjorie Merceline PIGOTT, Vancouver; many kissing cousins, nieces, nephews and Friends.
Julianna's main focus in life was her large family to whom she devoted vast amounts of time and energy. She was a patient, wonderful, caring mother and grandmother, a whiz at accomplishing many tasks in a calm and unflappable manner, an excellent cookie and pie maker, and a gracious hostess. Over the years her fingers were rarely idle as she created items for the Hospital Gift Shop or knitted goods, especially sweaters, for her own family. She was active in the community being a lifetime member of St. Alban's Cathedral and St. Alban's Altar Guild. Of her many volunteer activities she really enjoyed helping children from Kin Valley School at their swimming classes in the (now) Lakeside Inn and delivering Meals on Wheels with daughter Eleanor. She was a member of the Ladies Hospital Auxiliary for many years taking a turn as President. She enjoyed Friendships with many people including her square dancing group and her afternoon Bridge Club with whom she played bridge until she was 89. Truly her favourite time of year was summertime when she loved sharing the family island on Lake of the Woods with her ever growing and changing family. She took great pleasure her whole life long in boat rides, picnics and sunsets on beautiful Lake of the Woods. Julianna will long be remembered as a kind, considerate and dear person.
Immediate cremation has taken place. A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held at St. Alban's Cathedral, 312 Main Street South, Kenora, on Saturday, November 22nd, 2003 at 1: 30 p.m. A reception downstairs in the church hall will follow immediately afterwards.
As an expression of sympathy, those who wish may make a donation in Julianna's memory to the Lake of the Woods C.T. Scanner Fund, 21 Sylvan Street West, Kenora, Ontario P9N 3W7 or to St. Alban's Cathedral, 312 Main Street South, Kenora, Ontario P9N 1T2, or to a charity of one's choice.
