PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10.30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queens Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queens University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. West, at Windermere, East of the Jane Subway, on Tuesday, November 29, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of his life will take place at Timothy Eaton Church on Wednesday, November 30 at 3.00 p.m. Donations may be made in his memory to a favorite charity. It is not often that a man can live for most of a century, can experience life before telephones, cars or airplanes were common, and can enjoy the fun of WiFi on an IMac, lucid to the end. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed.

Peter JENNINGS, 67: Canadian face of U.S. television
Delivered nightly news for decades
Lung cancer claims veteran
By David BAUDER, Associated Press
New York -- Peter JENNINGS, the suave, Toronto-born broadcaster who delivered the news to Americans each night in five separate decades, died yesterday. He was 67.
JENNINGS, who announced in April that he had lung cancer, died at his New York home, ABC News President David Westin said late last night.
"Peter has been our colleague, our friend, and our leader in so many ways.
"None of us will be the same without him," Westin said.
With Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather, JENNINGS was part of a triumvirate that dominated network news for more than two decades, through the birth of cable news and the Internet.
His smooth delivery and years of international reporting experience made JENNINGS particularly popular among urban dwellers.
JENNINGS was the face of ABC News whenever a big story broke. He logged more than 60 hours on the air during the week of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, offering a soothing sense of continuity during a troubled time.
"There are a lot of people who think our job is to reassure the public every night that their home, their community and their nation is safe," he told author Jeff Alan.
"I don't subscribe to that at all. I subscribe to leaving people with essentially -- sorry it's a cliché -- a rough draft of history. Some days it's reassuring, some days it's absolutely destructive."
JENNINGS' announcement four months ago that he would begin treatment for lung cancer came as a shock.
"I will continue to do the broadcast," he said, his voice husky, in a taped message that night. "On good days, my voice will not always be like this."
But although JENNINGS occasionally came to the office between chemotherapy treatments, he never again appeared on the air.
"He knew that it was an uphill struggle. But he faced it with realism, courage, and a firm hope that he would be one of the fortunate ones," Westin said. "In the end, he was not."
Broadcasting was the family business for JENNINGS, who was born in Toronto. His father, Charles JENNINGS, was the first person to anchor a nightly national news program in Canada and later became head of the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.'s news division. A picture of his father was displayed prominently in JENNINGS' office off ABC's newsroom.
Charles JENNINGS' son had a Saturday morning radio show in Ottawa at age 9. JENNINGS never completed high school or college, and began his career as a news reporter at an Ontario radio station in Brockville. He quickly earned an anchor job at CTV.
Sent south to cover the Democratic national convention in 1964, the handsome, dashing correspondent was noticed by ABC's news president. JENNINGS was offered a reporting job and left Canada for New York.
As the third-place news network, ABC figured its only chance was to go after young viewers.
JENNINGS was picked to anchor the evening news and debuted on February 1, 1965. He was 26.
"It was a little ridiculous when you think about it," JENNINGS told author Barbara Matusow. "A 26-year-old trying to compete with Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley. I was simply unqualified."
Critics savaged him as a pretty face unfit for the promotion. Using the Canadian pronunciations for some words and once misidentifying the Marine Corps' anthem as "Anchors Aweigh" didn't help his reputation. The experiment ended three years later.
He later described the humbling experience as an opportunity, "because I was obliged to figure out who I was and what I really wanted to be."
Assigned as a foreign correspondent, JENNINGS thrived. He established an ABC News bureau in Beirut, and became an expert on the Middle East. He won a Peabody Award for a 1974 profile of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.
On the scene at the Munich Olympics in 1972, JENNINGS was perfectly placed to cover the hostage-taking of Israeli athletes by an Arab terrorist group. He and a crew hid in the athletes' quarters for a close-in view of the drama.
JENNINGS returned to the evening news a decade after his unceremonious departure. In 1978, ABC renamed its broadcast World News Tonight, and instituted a three-person anchor team: Frank Reynolds based in Washington, Max Robinson from Chicago and JENNINGS, by then ABC's chief foreign correspondent, from London.
Following Reynolds' death from cancer, ABC abandoned the multi-anchor format and JENNINGS became sole anchor on September 5, 1983.
Starting in 1986, JENNINGS began a decade on top of the ratings. His international experience served him well explaining stories like the collapse of communism, the first Gulf War and the terrorist bombing of an airplane over Lockerbie, Scotland. He took pride that World News Tonight, as its name suggested, took a more worldly view than its rivals. Fans responded to his smart, controlled style.
"When it's clearly an emotional experience for the audience, the anchor should not add his or her emotional layers," JENNINGS said in an interview with the Star Tribune in Minneapolis.
Two-thirds of local broadcasters responding to a 1993 survey by Broadcasting and Cable magazine said JENNINGS was the best network news anchor.
Washington Journalism Review named him anchor of the year three straight years.

PRITCHARD, David -- Dispatch
By Jordan PRESS, Saturday, March 26, 2005, Page M4
Radio listeners never knew what they were going to hear when David PRITCHARD took to the Disk Jockey booth. One night he piped up in the middle of a pop song and told listeners, "later we'll chop some chives with Charles Ives." Some nights he would look at whoever was at the station with him and begin one of his 10-minute esoteric conversations. "Uh... uh... John," he would start, according to fellow disc-jockey John DONABIE, who met Mr. PRITCHARD in the 1970s when the two were at CHUM-FM. 'I notice you have a staple in your arm. Are you for sale?'
"He would go so deep into somewhere, and it would all make sense," says Mr. DONABIE, now the weekend morning man at CFRB.
Mr. PRITCHARD was a musician and an artist, but is best remembered as an influential local radio host from the end of the era when Disk Jockeys -- not corporate programmers -- picked the play lists. He died of cancer on February 27 at age 60.
"Everyone believed that no one could be that creative... without doing something," Mr. DONABIE says, referring to the drugs that fuelled the period. But "David didn't even smoke cigarettes."
Mr. PRITCHARD was born on October 18, 1944, in London, England, and moved with his family to North York in 1952. As a teenager, he started his own pirate radio station he called CBIG by rigging up a microphone and an antenna to broadcast across his Willowdale neighbourhood.
He rose to prominence in 1968 when he became the late-night man at CHUM, where it wasn't unheard of him to broadcast classical, jazz and electronic records simultaneously on the station's three turntables, Mr. DONABIE says.
He would also play his own experimental electronic compositions. "But he would always say a listener named Fred had sent in some new music," says Jim BAUER, who worked with Mr. PRITCHARD at CHUM. " People listening on the air had no idea it was David."
In 1969, he married Libby GRAHAM and they had two children, Christian, now 32, and Fraser, now 29.
Shortly after Fraser was born, Mr. PRITCHARD became the first program director for then-fledgling CFNY in 1977. He continued to make music, becoming the first North American to be signed by Island Records, the same label as U2 and Bob Marley. He was also a visual artist, creating many collages and paintings that now hang on the walls of his Friends' homes.
While he had opportunities to take more lucrative jobs, he was always more interested in art than money, his son Christian says.

COTTON, Dorothy Lucille (née WRIGHT)
Dorothy Lucille COTTON, daughter of the late George Wallace and Lucy Copping WRIGHT, passed away peacefully on June 21st, 2005. Dorothy was born in Toronto in 1915 and spent her early years in Hamilton and many summers on Sparrow Lake. Dorothy's remarkable life was full of the things she most loved: family, Friends, animals, painting and golfing. Her love of golf spanned more than eighty years and her start at golf was impressive. Dorothy became ladies champion many times in Saint Thomas and at Chedoke in Hamilton. Her next success came with the coveted "Hole-in-One." Most recently, she discovered the joys of the links on the computer but was still occasionally found on the greens with her golfing buddies at age 89. Golfing, however, was not her only passion. She also came from a long line of people with a talent for painting and pursued this interest from an early age. Dorothy will be best remembered for her love of her family, children and animals. Throughout her life she provided safe harbour to many birds, fish, pugs and cats and provided an abundance of love and treats to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Dorothy was predeceased by her husband Ray in 1965. In addition to her daughter Lynda BAUGHMAN of London, Dorothy is also survived by her son, Allan COTTON of Kelowna, British Columbia. Dorothy was a much loved grandmother to Vicki MENCE and her husband of Kingston, Michelle BAUGHMAN, Doug (Sally) BAUGHMAN, Randy (Stephanie) BAUGHMAN, all of London, Mark (Michele) BAUGHMAN of Toronto, Lance (Maggie) COTTON of Kelowna, British Columbia and Paul (Dana) COTTON also of Kelowna. Dorothy's presence will be deeply missed by her seven greatgrandchildren. She is also survived by a daughter-in-law, two nieces, a nephew and many wonderful Friends here and in Florida. A celebration of Dorothy's life will take place at Littlewood United Church on Friday, June 24th at 1 p.m. with Reverend Krist iane Charlton officiating. Instead of visitation, a reception will follow at the church after the service. If desired, donations to the Canadian Diabetic Association or The London Humane Society would be gratefully acknowledged, but Dorothy would be happiest if you remember her while out on the golf course, admiring a sunset at the lake, or just when enjoying the good things in life. McFarlane and Roberts Funeral Home, 652-2020 in care of arrangements.
