LEFEBURE, John Victor
Jock, our beloved patriarch, died peacefully at home on November 28, 2007 at the age of 86. He was predeceased by his wife Barbara and his sister Jill JANSEN of the United Kingdom. He is survived by his children: David (Nan EDMISON,) Jon (Marlene HAYES,) Todd (Susan HARRISON) and Deborah (Rob KURLUK;) his grandchildren: Sarah (David WARRINER,) John (Gillian BISHOP,) Michael, Julia, Sean, Claire, Will, Emma and Hayden; step grandchildren Justin and Andrea; and his sister Judith LYWOOD of Bath, United Kingdom. Jock was born in the Golders Green area of London on November 18, 1921. He graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Civil Engineering during World War 2, and immediately joined the Royal Air Force. In between flying Wellingtons, he was smitten with Barbara 'Bill' WHATLEY and married her on October 12, 1946. Jock and Bill set out to start a new life in Canada in 1948. He worked as an engineer with Alcan in Kingston and Montreal, and then moved to Stelco in Hamilton, where he worked in Sales Engineering until his retirement. Jock and Bill enjoyed retirement years both in Ontario and then in Victoria, British Columbia until her death in 1997. Jock then started a new chapter in his life, turning his energies to community service. He arranged for thousands of used tennis balls to be shipped to poor children abroad. While dealing with loss of eyesight, he became an innovator, champion and spokesperson for people with low vision. He lived life fully to the end, with the help of his dear friend Barbara Riggs and his family. We will all miss his zest for life, sense of adventure and endless curiosity. The times spent at the cottage on Lake of Bays, at the house on Sanibel Island and more recently at the cottage on Salt Spring Island will stand out in memory, as will images of Jock the master sailor and woodworker. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind or a charity of your choice. A Celebration of Jock's Life will be held for family and Friends on Saturday, December 29 at the First Memorial Chapel at 4725 Falaise Drive, Victoria at 2 p.m. followed by a reception at Jock's home. Condolences may be sent to

OXFORD, Kay Frances Clare (née DAVIDOVICH)
Mother, wife, teacher, college administrator, best friend to many. Born April 12, 1945, in London, England. Died February 8 of cancer in Toronto, aged 61.
By Dianne LOCOCO, Lynne KURYLO and Hilde ZIMMER and Earle OXFORD, Page L6
'I'm the luckiest person in the world." Days after being told that her cancer was inoperable, Kay, on impulse, took off to London for a long weekend. She was the Energizer Bunny, on the hop the whole time.
Kay's affinity for England was engendered by her English mother, Phyllis NASH. Kay's tenacity was engendered by her father, Stephen DAVIDOVICH. Stephen was a Canadian army officer in wartime London, where he met and married Phyllis.
"A wisp of air in a breeze," was how her father described Kay. She flitted from one social engagement to another, gracing hundreds of Friends with warmth, mirth and gifts of the Bruce Peninsula pottery she so loved.
How Kay shoehorned daily coffees, lunches, dinners with Friends and chats with shop clerks, bus drivers and students into her rigorous schedule as an administrator at George Brown College is a study in time management. She worked tirelessly for more than 40 years to facilitate access to education for new Canadians.
Kay's many years of volunteer work reflect her varied interests. A long-time student of Canadian history and heritage, she was a member of and volunteer at the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse museum. Patients in the palliative care unit at Saint Michael's Hospital loved Kay's natural warmth and caring. Her spirit will live on in the lively annual neighbourhood parties that she instigated.
Kay was a saint with a broad swath of wicked humour painted up her steel spine. After her first operation, in 2003, I called her husband, Earle, who said, "Kay's fine." He meant that he hoped Kay would be okay, so I thought Kay was fine and sent flowers with a cocky note: "Start eating. Get off the Calista Flockhart I.V. diet." Kay telephoned. "You don't know they removed 2/3 of my stomach, do you?" I didn't. "I have cancer." I didn't know that either. "The nurses are upset with you." Kay thought it was hilarious. For the next 3½ years, she would tease me about my faux pas and delight in my squirming.
The last time I saw Kay, her health was fading quickly. She was weak and couldn't talk for long. But she spoke of her unbridled love for and pride in her son, John Daniel. She spoke of how wonderfully caring Earle was and the "lovely" talks they were sharing. She whispered, "I'm the luckiest person in the world."
The day before Valentine's Day, St. Philip's Anglican Church was packed. It was a testament not to Kay's luck, but to her heart.
Kay's friend Dianne LOCOCO wrote this with help from Lynne KURYLO, Hilde ZIMMER and Earle OXFORD.
