FRANKS, Gladys Evelyn (née BATCHELOR)
Gladys Evelyn FRANKS was born in Proton Township, May 19, 1914 and entered eternal rest April 14, 2005 at Dufferin Oaks. She was the fifth child of Samuel and Edith (CAMPBELL) BATCHELOR. Gladys is survived by one sister, Elva DUNN, Toronto, and two brothers Ernie (Eunice), Collingwood and Fred (Melrose) of Orangeville.
Gladys was predeceased by her husband Osborne who was killed in a construction accident, December, 1946, one sister Ila FARR and four brothers - John, Edward, Wilfred and Robert, an infant son and a grand_son Tim FRANKS. Gladys' children are Russell (Arlene) of Orangeville, Marie HODGKINSON, Toronto, Leslie (Isabell) of Dundalk, Delbert (Diane) of Orangeville, and Keith (Pat) of Dundalk. Gladys' grandchildren are: Wilda (Bob) HARDING, Jeff (Diane) FRANKS, Mark (Sonya) FRANKS, Dawn (Scott) HIGGINSON, Tammy (Paul) NIXON, Jeremy FRANKS, Rob (Jenn) FRANKS, Gaye FRANKS, Scott (Kristin) FRANKS. Great-grandchildren are: Jennifer (Rick) JOHNSTON, Chris HARDING, Carter, Jordan, Tanner, Natalie, Ryan, Tyler FRANKS and Courtney, Kristen, Ashley NIXON.
Gladys was raised at Saugeen Junction, north of Proton Station. Her parents were farmers, and then bought the brick yard at Proton Station, then returned later to farming. Their children all knew what hard work was. Gladys and her siblings attended public school at Proton Station and as a young girl worked at home and did housekeeping for neighbours.
Gladys and Osborne were married in 1935, farming in the south of Proton, then to Artemesia Township and settling on the 3rd Line of Osprey, near Hatherton. With a family of five children, times being hard in the forties, Osborne worked with Greenwood Construction as well as farming. It was while Osborne was away at work that the tragic news was received of Osborne's sudden death, December 2, 1946 in a construction accident. Gladys was left a widow and five children to raise. Being the strong and courageous person she was, she struggled on and with the help of family, community and Friends, Gladys kept farming and raising her children and teaching them skills of life. She was always so appreciative of the help she received in those difficult years. Gladys farmed until 1970, when she sold the farm and moved to her newly built home in Dundalk.
In Dundalk, Gladys enjoyed her home, family gatherings, gardening, community events, hockey and baseball, senior tours, bingo and her growing family of grandchildren. Gladys lived in her home in Dundalk until March 2004. With failing health she sold her home and in June moved to Dufferin Oaks. She enjoyed her new experience of living at Dufferin Oaks; adjusting well and going to events as her health allowed. She enjoyed the staff there, loved the visits of everyone who came by. As her health failed she was given special attention by Dufferin Oaks and Palliative care. Gladys passed away on April 14, almost reaching the grand age of 91.
Her funeral was held April 18 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk with burial following at Community of Christ Cemetery. The service was officiated by Elder John RICHARDSON and Evangelist Rod McLEAN, a family friend.

3 reservists face murder charges
Homeless man beaten to death in Moss Park
By Hilda HOY, Staff Reporter
Three members of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves are facing second-degree murder and assault charges after a homeless man was beaten to death in a downtown park and a woman coming to his aid was attacked.
Paul Richard CROUTCH, 59, died at St. Michael's Hospital on Wednesday as his case manager stood nearby. An autopsy performed Friday found the cause of death was trauma to the head, and the injuries were consistent with being punched, kicked or stomped.
Police were called to an assault in Moss Park, near Sherbourne and Shuter Sts., shortly before 5 a.m. on Wednesday. An unconscious CROUTCH was rushed to hospital but died later that morning.
A woman who witnessed the beating and intervened was treated for soft-tissue damage and bruising, police said.
CROUTCH had been a resident of the Salvation Army's Gateway Shelter, around the corner from the park on Jarvis Street, since 2002. Gateway will host a funeral next week.
He has family on the West Coast who have been notified.
"He was very mild-mannered and soft-spoken," said Gateway director Dion OXFORD. "He was harmless."
Last time he saw CROUTCH, he was watching the Gateway softball team play in the park.
"He kept to himself most of the time," remembered Gateway chaplain Ron FARR.
Brian DEGANIS, 21, Jeffery HALL, 21, and Mountaz IBRAHIM, 23, all of Toronto, were arrested and charged Friday after a joint investigation by Toronto police and the army's National Investigation Services.
The three men are part-time members of the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, a reserve infantry unit that trains at the Moss Park Armoury adjacent to the park where CROUTCH was found.
Each has received at least two years of combat training, although the exact length of their service could not be confirmed. They had attended a "social function" at the armoury that evening but were not in uniform, investigation services spokesman Capt. Mark GILES said.
"Uniform or no uniform, these are very serious charges and we take it very seriously," said GILES.
Because the incident took place in the park and not on armoury property, the investigation falls under city police jurisdiction. The National Investigation Services provided support and will continue to do so as needed, GILES said.

THOMAS, Harriet " Hallie" (née TOMPKINS)
Died peacefully with her family at her bedside, on Monday, April 25th, 2005, at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. Hallie was born in New York City on December 4th, 1913, the daughter of Leslie Jay TOMPKINS, a noted law professor, and Jean Edgar BURNET, a well-known suffragette. Hallie graduated from The Brearley and from Vassar, where she was the editor of the college newspaper. After graduation she went to Paris as a free-lance journalist for the New York Herald Tribune. There she met John Kempster (J.K.) THOMAS, a brilliant philosophy student who later became a respected editor and psychologist. They were married in 1937 and moved to Toronto where, as a member of the Junior League, she put together the children's radio program 'Sounds Fun'. She was also very involved with the National Ballet of Canada, serving on its first Board of Directors and as the editor of the Ballet News. Saturday nights were spent in rowdy stimulating conversation with her long time Friends Morley and Loretto CALLAGHAN, Mary Lowrey ROSS, film Critic for Saturday Night magazine, and Eustace ROSS, the symbolist poet. When Hallie's husband died, she took up a new career, Real Estate, at the age of 55. After her retirement, she travelled widely across the continent in her red convertible with Molly, her beloved Irish setter. Always game for new challenges, in her latter years she became a prize-winning duplicate bridge player.
She is survived by four children: Mary FARRAR (Edward) and John THOMAS (Liz WHELPDALE) of Kingston, Ontario, and Jeannie Thomas PARKER and Christie Thomas POTTS of Toronto. She was also loved by her late brother James B. TOMPKINS, her sister-in-law, Patty, her niece Teri, and her late nephews, Leslie J. and James B. TOMPKINS, all of Toronto. She was the loving grandmother of 13 grandchildren: Ross, Scott and Andrew FARRAR, Jean PAQUIN (Andy,) Hannah CARLSEN (Angelo), Deepamala and Stephen THOMAS, Tony PARKER, Lisa NORTH (Chris,) Trevor and Joanna POTTS and the late Gavin and Jason POTTS. She was the caring great-grandmother of Meghan and Caitlyn NORTH, Mika CARLSEN and Sarah PAQUIN.
She loved: Friends and Friendship, canoeing in the evenings, helping out in small ways, scotch, genealogy, poolside afternoons, mysteries, crosswords, heady conversation, jokes and laughter, elegance, Gershwin, the Toronto Maple Leafs, French cooking, the New Yorker, scrabble and bridge, parties, bargains, swimming the breast stroke, sunsets, yoga, poetry, and the open road. But most of all, she loved family. We will all miss her enormously.
Funeral arrangements will be announced in tomorrow's paper.
