In loving memory of our sisters, Catherine Louise WILSON, who passed away May 9, 1979 and Nancy Lucille (WILSON) KEATING, who passed away May 5, 1996.
We seem to see in the soft dim light
The faces we love the best
Recalling them as the Sun's last rays
Go down in the far-off west
We miss them more as time goes on,
We can never close our hearts
And the lamp of our love still burns.
Their hearts the truest in all the world,
Their love the best to recall,
None on earth can take their place,
They are still the dearest of all
Lovingly remembered by Ivan and Lisa, Ginelle, Brianne and Lindsey LANGEMAP, Phil and Debbie, Brittany and Robert WILSON.

Our hearts are full of memories
We cherish them with care.
The way you had to go so soon,
Will always seem unfair.
We never thought of losing you,
And maybe that was wrong
You always were a part of us,
That would always carry on.
One thing we have to tell you, girls,
Of which there is no doubt
You're wonderful to think about,
But so hard to live without
"Love never faileth"

A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

WILSON, James
In loving memory of our dear husband, father and grandfather, James WILSON, who passed away October 24, 2003.
A million times we've missed you,
A million times we've cried
If our love could have saved you, James
You never would have died,
We will always remember the way you looked
The way you walked and smiled,
The things you always said and did
Are with us all the while
You never failed to do your best
Your heart was true and tender,
You lived your life for those you loved
And those you loved, remember.
Til we meet again, Jean, Dwayne, Susie, Shannon, and Justin.

WILSON, Kenneth (December 1, 1969 - January 9, 2004)
In loving memory of a dear husband, a great Dad and our best friend, Kenneth WILSON.
In tears we watched you sinking,
We watched you fade away,
We could not wish you back,
To suffer that again.
Little did we know that morning,
The sorrow that day would bring,
If love could have saved you,
You never would have died.
The call was sudden,
The shock was severe,
To lose someone we love so dear.
Although it has been a year,
It still feels like you are here,
No matter how our lives may change in
whatever we may do,
We will never forget those precious times,
The ones we spent with you.
We could shed tears that you are gone,
Or we could smile because you lived life to the fullest,
We could close our eyes and wish you were still with us,
Or we could embrace the legacy you left behind.
We could remember you and that you are gone,
Or we could cherish your memories and let them live on.
Sadly your journey was much too short,
We know you are never too far away,
You walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, still very dear,
Till we meet again.
In our hearts always and forever loved, your wife Patricia and three wonderful kids you would be so proud of - Sarah, Jordan and Makayla.

Police lay murder charge
Slashed tires and a broken window were found at the home of a slain woman.
By John HERBERT, Free Press Reporter
A young London woman is dead and a London man she knew has been charged with murder in the city's first homicide of the year. Police did not reveal the identity of the woman, who was found dead at 4: 15 a.m. yesterday at her home at 875 Thistledown Way, Unit 5.
But neighbours say the body was that of Laura WILSON, a woman in her early 20s who had recently left her boyfriend.
James William VANDERSANDEN, 23, of 485 Castlegrove Blvd., is charged with first-degree murder, break and enter, criminal harassment, mischief under $5,000 and assault with a weapon.
Police would not say what their relationship was but did confirm they knew each other.
"They had an association," said Det. Sgt. John PARE.
Police would not identify the woman until after an autopsy was completed.
"We spoke to her family, but we can't release the name. It's got to be done the proper way," PARÉ said.
Police would not say what weapon was used.
A shocked neighbour said Wilson lived alone in her mother's condo in the quiet, mostly-seniors Rembrandt Heights condominium complex, just west of the intersection of Wonderland and Sarnia roads.
WILSON had been living with a boyfriend, but recently returned to her mother's place, the neighbour said.
The condo is for sale and WILSON's mother and a younger sister had already moved out, the neighbour said.
WILSON was planning to live in the condo until it was sold, then move in with her mother, she said.
Police confirmed the dead woman was living alone.
But another woman was in the condo at the time of the attack, PARÉ said.
She suffered knife wounds and bleeding, fled the condo and called police from a neighbour's place, police said.
VANDERSANDEN was arrested about 5 a.m. after a short foot chase that ended near the London Aquatic Centre, in the backyard of a home on Blue Forest Place.
Yesterday morning, a silver Chrysler Sebring was parked in front of the condo, with three of its tires slashed.
A large front window near the entrance to the condo was smashed.
"I'm very shocked. She was a very nice woman," said neighbour Dave ROBERTS.
"I heard ambulances about 4: 30 in the morning, but I never heard any noise until then. I looked out the window and all the police were here."
"Nothing like this happens around here," added shocked neighbour Michael GIBBONS.
There were five homicides in London last year.
The most recent victim was William Gordon (Bill) SMITH, who was found face down in gravel outside his apartment at 206 Clarence St. near Simcoe Street November 16.

In a little country graveyard
Where the gentle breezes blow
While the birds chirp their love song
And the spring flowers begin to grow
Lies the one we loved so dearly
And lost 4 years ago.
May the winds of love blow softly
And whisper in your ear
That we will always love and miss you
And wish that you were here.

In memory of my grandfather, William (Bill) WILSON who passed away on February 04, 2001.
Even though the farm is gone
I'll always remember your charm
The way you ploughed, the way you hayed
I wish we could relive those days
While I'm travelling the country roads to-day
Our memories will never fade
As I continue to plough and hay,
Meeting the challenges you met everyday
What I would give to hear you say
"Hello Jay" in the same old way
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart
As the star in Heaven that come alive at night
I know it's you Grandpa
Coming to say good-night.
Love always Jason MILLS.

COOPER, Margaret Roseanna (formerly WILSON, SUTTON, née LEWIS)
Unexpectedly but peacefully at her residence surrounded by her family on Thursday, May 19, 2005, Margaret Roseanna COOPER (formerly WILSON, SUTTON, née LEWIS) in her 76th year.

Being one of 18 siblings was a point of pride for Margaret (Maggie) because despite the numbers there was always enough love and laughter to go around. Of the 18 children, 14 grew to have families of their own but there always remained a very close connection between each and every one of them. Surviving brothers and sisters include: William LEWIS (Hildred,) Florence ASHFORD (Claude,) Bernice SAMPSON/SAMSON (Charlie), Hector LEWIS (Eileen), Sadie JOYES (Ray), Hazel MacSWEEN, George LEWIS (Susie), Joyce STANDING (Bobby), Daniel LEWIS (Anna) and Shirley MURRAY. "Aunt Marg" was considered a "favorite" to many, many nieces and nephews. Also survived by exhusband and good friend Bob WILSON Sr. of Owen Sound. There is probably a kitchen in heaven right now with a tea pot on the stove and some good Cape Breton fiddle music playing and love, laughter and memories being shared between Marg and her predeceased parents Maude (HINKS) and John Henry LEWIS, brothers Jim and Stan LEWIS and sister Mary BAKER. She was also predeceased by two great men who came into her life and brightened it in their own loving ways, husband Raymond SUTTON, husband Kenneth COOPER. Friends may call at the R.D. Longworth Funeral Home, 845 Devonshire Avenue Woodstock (539-0004) on Sunday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. where the funeral service will be held in the chapel on Monday at 1: 30 p.m. with Reverend John FURRY officiating.

Homicide No. 13
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter
A Toronto-area man faces a second-degree murder charge after one man was shot to death and another injured in a pub parking lot early yesterday.
Dwayne PITTER, 23, of Vaughan, was charged yesterday with second-degree murder and attempted murder in connection with London's record 13th homicide.
PITTER is to appear in a London court today.
Joshua Kenneth WILLIAMS, 22, of the London area, was shot in the torso outside the Roxbury Pub and Grill at 1165 Oxford St. E. at 2: 20 a.m.
He died later.
Three people, including PITTER, were taken into custody. The other two were released, police said last night.
Detectives scoured the lot yesterday as they wrestled with a skyrocketing number of homicides this year.
Neighbours said they saw a crowd leave the bar about 2: 30 a.m., then heard screaming.
"I heard the gunshots and I saw someone go down. I thought it was firecrackers," said a woman who was standing outside the Roxbury near a variety store at the time. She did want to give her name.
"I heard two shots and I ran into the (variety) store."
Police said a dispute outside the bar led to the shooting.
Police and paramedics arrived to find WILLIAMS seriously hurt and another man shot in the arm. The second man was treated and released from hospital.
Police have recovered a handgun and are not looking for any more weapons, said Det. Andrew WHITFORD.
It's unclear whether WILLIAMS, the injured man and the three people in custody had just left the Roxbury when the shooting happened, WHITFORD said.
But there were about 40 people in the parking lot when a disagreement broke out, he said. Police are still probing the cause of the dispute.
WHITFORD said many witnesses: have come forward and bar staff have co-operated.
Roxbury staff declined comment yesterday.
Neighbours have complained of fights and loud noise after the bar's closing time.
"It's scary," said Brenda PARSONS, who lives in a nearby townhouse complex. "You don't need television to live in this neighbourhood. There's enough entertainment outside."
PARSONS said she thinks police should patrol the area more regularly on Friday and Saturday nights.
The parking lot is the same one in which Ryan VLAAD, 26, died after being punched in the head during an early morning brawl in July 2002.
Ward 3 Coun. Bernie MacDONALD said he's fielded complaints from neighbours who have had beer bottles thrown at their houses and on their property after 2 a.m. and have heard fights breaking out.
"This has been an ongoing thing with the residents," he said.
The concerns were passed on to police and MacDONALD thought the problems had been quelled until he heard about yesterday's shooting.
But MacDONALD said he thinks drugs are the "root evil" behind violence and shootings in the city this year.
"Until we cut the flow of drugs, we're going to see this and it's going to continue to rise," he said.
Police said they don't know whether drugs were involved in the fatal shooting.
Officers blocked off a large section of the strip mall, which also houses a Sport Mart, Goodwill, variety store, karate school and Tim Hortons.
A green Jeep and a black car also were taped off, though police wouldn't say why.
A shell casing and knife were visible at the scene.
A green camouflage hat, grey T-shirt, plastic beer cups, a cigarette pack and a lighter were strewn near what appeared to be a bloody stain near the black car.
Forensic detectives picked through the evidence and used a fire department aerial truck to photograph and videotape the lot.
An autopsy will be conducted today to determine the cause of death.

WILSON, Dorothy
In loving memory of Dorothy, who passed away 5 years ago today, October 1st, 2000. I close my eyes and you are right there with me, Smiling at me as there were no one else around. I feel so much warmth in my heart and happiness in my voice when I speak your name. My eyes sparkle with love and my smile a mile wide, I'd walk over five to be by your side. I long for the softness of your touch and the warmth of your skin next to mine. You're always in my thoughts and forever in my heart, Not a day passes by that I don't think of you. Sadly missed by your loving children and grandchildren.

MCINNES/MCINNIS, Edythe Frances (née CALLAGHAN)
Peacefully, on Thursday, November 24, 2005, a long time resident of Mt. Carmel, Ontario, more recently of Chateau Gardens, Parkhill, passed away at Chateau Gardens, at the age of 88. Predeceased by her husband of over 50 years, John "Jack" Feeney MCINNES/MCINNIS (June, 2005). Left to cherish her memory are daughter, Ann and her husband Clive TONGE, Strathroy and son Paul and his wife Shelley MCINNES/MCINNIS of Mt. Carmel, sisters-in-law, Margaret CALLAHAN, Sarnia and Bea CALLAHAN, Teeswater. Numerous nieces, nephews and Friends will lovingly remember her. Predeceased by parents, Thomas J. and Ann Jane "Jennie" (COMISKEY) CALLAGHAN, brothers; Terrance (1913), Joseph C. "Tim" (1995), John C. "Jack" (1992) and sisters Marjorie VALLIERES (1983,) Helen McTAGGART (2004,) Mary (1922.) Edythe was born in Watford, Ontario December 21, 1916, where she grew up. She attended Watford Public School, Watford High School and Progressive Business School, London. After graduating, she worked in London at the Bureau of Credits and then the Mobilization Office as assistant to the registrar. After the war, she worked for Simpson's Department store, in the credit department, until she married and started raising her family. Jack and Ede then moved to Grand Bend, they owned and operated the Imperial Hotel for many years. No matter the job, whether it was helping her father, Tom, drive cattle, to being a mother she always gave the task at hand her full attention. As a child she loved listening to her father tell tales of when he was growing up in Adelaide Twp., as an adult she loved to relate tales of her life growing up in Watford. Her family was first and foremost to her and in later years she was interested in genealogy. She was always proud of her Irish background. Over the years the "g" has been dropped from Callaghan, her maiden name, her comment was "I came into the world with the "g" and I'll go out with it!" She had a wonderful sense of humour and a quick wit. Ede and Jack liked to travel when the children were younger they would go to Florida for holidays. When the children were older, they would pack up the car and go to Louisville on the first weekend of May to attend The Kentucky Derby (always a favorite trip). During retirement years Jack and Ede liked to head south to Panama City Beach, in their '68 Thunderbird for a few months to get away from the cold. Her laugh, her smile, her sense of adventure, are a few of the things we loved about her. She will be missed. The family would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. WHYNOT, the staff at Strathroy Hospital (1st floor south,) Doctors WILSON and TAILOR/TAYLOR, Grand Bend and everyone at Chateau Gardens for their care and compassion. Resting at the T. Harry Hoffman and Sons Funeral Home, Dashwood, with visitation Monday, November 28th, 2005 from 9: 30 a.m. to 10: 30 a.m. followed by the funeral mass at Our Lady of Mt.

Jack (1992) and sisters Marjorie VALLIERES (1983,) Helen McTAGGART (2004,) Mary (1922.) Edythe was born in Watford, Ontario on December 21, 1916, where she grew up. She attended Watford Public School, Watford High School, and Progressive Business School, London. After graduating, she worked in London at the Bureau of Credits and then the Mobilization Office as assistant to the registrar. After the war, she worked for Simpsons Department Store, in the credit department, until she married and started raising her family. Jack and Ede then moved to Grand Bend, where they owned and operated the Imperial Hotel for many years. No matter the job, whether it was helping her father, Tom, drive cattle, to being a mother, she always gave the task at hand her full attention. As a child, she loved listening to her father tell tales of when he was growing up in Adelaide Twp. As an adult, she loved to relate tales of her life growing up in Watford. Her family was first and foremost to her and in later years, she was interested in genealogy. She was always proud of her Irish background. Over the years, the g has been dropped from Callaghan, her maiden name, her comment was I came into the world with the g and Ill go out with it! She had a wonderful sense of humour and a quick wit.

When the children were older, they would pack up the car and go to Louisville on the first weekend of May to attend the Kentucky Derby (always a favourite trip). During retirement years, Jack and Ede liked to head south to Panama City Beach, in their 68 Thunderbird for a few months to get away from the cold. Her laugh, her smile, her sense of adventure, are a few of the things we loved about her. She will be missed.

Man killed in crash
By Ian McINROY, Thursday, September 15, 2005
Bradford -- Another local driver has lost his life, the fourth in just 10 days.
South Simcoe police say a Ford Mustang entered the ditch on 5th Sideroad after going out of control yesterday, just south of Line 4 around 9: 30 a.m., striking a tree.
Authorities have released few details, but say the male driver was not wearing a seat-belt and was thrown from the vehicle.
Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. (His name is being withheld pending the notification of next of kin.)
Weather was not a factor, said South Simcoe police Insp. Tom WILSON, adding that was also the case with previous fatalities September 7 and September 4.
“We're trying to determine whether or not speed is the common denominator. The others were also in broad daylight,” he said Wednesday.
“The road conditions were fine, it hadn't rained. People should be aware of the roads they're driving on and drive accordingly and be a little more cognizant of their speed,” he said.
Innisfil resident Glenn MOORE, 56, died September 7 in a collision on the northbound off-ramp of Highway 400 at Innisfil Beach Road.
Police said MOORE was killed when he lost control of his motorcycle on the off-ramp, colliding with an eastbound pickup truck on Innisfil Beach Road.
“It just appears that he was going to fast for the off-ramp,&rdquo said South Simcoe police Sgt. Steve WILSON.
The crash happened at about 1: 45 p.m., closing the area to traffic for nearly five hours while police investigated.
Another Innisfil resident, Josef LUCKAS, 45, was killed the afternoon of September 4 when the car he was driving on Big Bay Point Road rolled several times in a ditch and slammed into a tree.
Police say LUCKAS was not wearing a seat-belt and was thrown from the car.
A third Innisfil man, 33-year-old Douglas THORN, was killed when his pickup truck rolled into a ditch on the 10th Line of Essa Township the evening of September 5. He was taken to Royal Victoria Hospital and airlifted to Sunnybrook Medical Centre in Toronto where he died of his injuries.

Zenardo built homes and communities in Georgian Triangle
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 29
Dennis ZANARDO, a man who not only built hundreds of homes in Wasaga Beach but invested in its community infrastructure, died Monday following what family members say was a short and courageous six-week battle with liver cancer.
His life was celebrated by an estimated 450 people Thursday at the Wasage Beach RecPlex, a facility the man played a role in building.
He was 51.
Marilyn RUTTAN, his companion for much of the last 12 years, said that during his fight with cancer he was always optimistic about the outcome.
ZANARDO was intimately associated with the local residential construction industry. He was associated with Fernbrook Homes and jointly owned Zancor Homes, a company with residential subdivision developments in Collingwood, Wasaga Beach and Stayner.
RUTTAN said ZANARDO, a Brampton native who enjoyed some success as a high school basketball player before entering the family business, will be missed by a number of people.
Wasaga Beach mayor Cal PATTERSON recalled ZANARDO, a close friend, on Monday afternoon.
"I think his character is what will be remembered," he said. "Dennis was one of those larger than life guys.
PATTERSON said that ZANARDO, a jovial six-foot, four-inch man, loved Wasaga Beach and its people. The mayor added that ZANARDO, who owned part of Zancor Homes, was always trying to find a way to better the community.
ZANARDO donated the landscaping for the new library when it opened about 10 years ago. He donated the building in which the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce is now located and the brick canteen building at the Wasaga Beach Sports Park and was a big financial contributor each year to the Carly Patterson Memorial Golf Tournament.
"There are so many things Dennis did for Wasaga Beach," PATTERSON said.
His generosity extended beyond the Beach. ZANARDO also gave financially to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.
One of his favourite annual things was the Christmas party he threw for Friends and owners of Zancor houses. ZANARDO's one condition was that people bring a toy for children of less fortunate families.
"I spent Saturday with him. I was there about seven hours. Dennis was a really good friend. My children called him Uncle Dennis and when my daughter died he was right there by my side," PATTERSON explained.
PATTERSON's 22-year-old daughter, Carly, died from Hodgkins Disease in 1998.
ZANARDO tried to win a council seat in the early years but failed, the mayor remembered.
Former mayor Walter BORTHWICK also spoke fondly of ZANARDO on Monday. He said their relationship started off professionally about 15 years ago but added it quickly developed into a Friendship.
"Dennis was such a warm and generous individual," BORTHWICK said. "I'm sure to some, that because he was a big fellow who worked in construction, he seemed a bit rough around the edges but he was a very good man."
Paul PULLMAN was also Friends with ZANARDO, who people lovingly called Dennis the Menace. He said they met through a real estate broker in 1992 when PULLMAN, a freight broker, moved to Wasaga.
"He was a gregarious guy who had a heart of gold," PULLMAN said. "He was always helping people out when they were in trouble."
Simcoe-Grey member of provincial parliament Jim WILSON said Monday he was saddened to learn of ZANARDO's death.
"Dennis was a big supporter for all of my (political) years and yet he never asked for anything. He was a big fellow and his heart matched his size," WILSON said. "He was much too young to die."
ZANARDO is survived by his mother Jean, sister Nadine and brother Eric.

Community builder dies after battling cancer
Memorial service set for Thursday in Wasaga
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 8
Dennis ZANARDO, a man who not only built hundreds of homes in Wasaga Beach but invested in its community infrastructure, died Monday following what family members say was a short and courageous six-week battle with liver cancer.
He was 51.
Marilyn RUTTAN, his companion for much of the last 12 years, said that during his fight with cancer he was always optimistic about the outcome!
RUTTAN said ZANARDO, a Brampton native who enjoyed some success as a high school basketball player before entering the family business, will be missed by a number of people.
"He was definitely loved," she said.
Wasaga Beach mayor Cal PATTERSON recalled ZANARDO, a close friend, on Monday afternoon.
"I think his character is what will be remembered," he said. "Dennis was one of those larger than life guys.
PATTERSON said that ZANARDO, a jovial six-foot, four-inch man, loved Wasaga Beach and its people. The mayor added that ZANARDO, who owned part of Zancor Homes, was always trying to find a way to better the community.
"Dennis felt he could never do enough," PATTERSON said.
His touch can be found in countless places around town. For exam pie, PATTERSON said that ZANARDO donated the landscaping for the new library when it opened about 10 years ago. As well, he donated the building in which the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce is now located.
ZANARDO also donated the brick canteen building at the Wasaga Beach Sports Park and was a big financial contributor each year to the Carly Patterson Memorial Golf Tournament.
"There are so many things Dennis did for Wasaga Beach," PATTERSON said.
His generosity extended beyond the Beach. ZANARDO also gave financially to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.

"I spent Saturday with him. I was there about seven hours. Dennis was a really good friend. My children called him Uncle Dennis and when my daughter died he was right there by my side," PATTERSON explained.
His 22-year-old daughter, Carly, died from Hodgkins Disease in ZANARDO and PATTERSON first met about 16 years ago shortly after the developer began work in the community. Along with building homes here and giving back to Wasaga, ZANARDO tried to win a council seat in the early years but failed, the mayor remembered.
PATTERSON said he learned of ZANARDO's death early Monday morning, around 4 a.m. He said that he went over to the house to be with RUTTAN.
Former mayor Walter BORTHWICK also spoke fondly of ZANARDO on Monday. He said their relationship started off professionally about 15 years ago but added it quickly developed into a Friendship.
"Dennis was such a warm and generous individual," BORTHWICK said. "I'm sure to some, that because he was a big fellow who worked in construction, he seemed a bit rough around the edges but he was a very good man."
It was just a week ago. that BORTHWICK said he popped in to see ZANARDO.
"We had a good chat and did a lot of catching up. Quite frankly I knew he wasn't well but I was really surprised when I got the phone call this morning."
BORTHWICK later added that "Dennis was one of those people who made it very easy to remember the good times now that he is no longer with us."
Paul PULLMAN was also Friends with ZANARDO, who people lovingly called Dennis the Menace. He said they met through a real estate broker in 1992 when PULLMAN, a freight broker, moved to Wasaga.
"We just hit it off," PULLMAN said. He recalled they often went for lunch, would play cards, visit Casino Rama near Orillia or just get together for some drinks.
"He was a gregarious guy who had a heart of gold," PULLMAN said. "He was always helping people out when they were in trouble."
PULLMAN noted he last saw ZANARDO Sunday.
"He couldn't really talk but he understood what we said. We communicated by holding hands and I talked to him."
Simcoe-Grey member of provincial parliament Jim WILSON said Monday he was saddened to learn of ZANARDO's death.
"Dennis was a big supporter for all of my (political) years and yet he never asked for anything. He was a big fellow and his heart matched his size," WILSON said. "He was much too young to die."
Former Wasaga clerk Eric COLLINGWOOD remarked that from his first meeting he knew that the man would do Wasaga proud.
"His dreams were big, the projects were even bigger but being guided by the goodness of his heart many of these dreams and projects became reality." The Town of Wasaga Beach has grown and prospered from just knowing 'Dennis the Menace'," said COLLINGWOOD.
Despite ZANARDO's fun-loving and hard working ethic, he was also a big reader, RUTTAN said.
"I don't think many people knew that," she added.
Every day ZANARDO would read The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, The National Post and The Toronto Sun.
She said he also read local community newspapers in the area.
"He always wanted to see them the day they came out," she said.
ZANARDO enjoyed a good relationship with the Metroland newspaper chain, which includes The Sun. He often called the newspaper in the late 1990s to let reporters know of charity events he was corporately supporting, but shied away himself from the limelight.
A service in memory of ZANARDO is scheduled for Thursday at the RecPlex, 1724 Mosley Street, from 1 a.m. to 2 p.m. The family asks that donations in memory of ZANARDO be made to the RecPlex. ZANARDO was on the committee that oversees fundraising for the multi-use facility,
ZANARDO is survived by his mother Jean, sister Nadine and brother Eric.

WILSON, Dr. W. John, M.D., (F.R.C.PC)
Passed away peacefully at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital on Saturday, February 5th, 2005. John is sadly missed and proudly remembered by his beloved wife Marion, his sons, John (Susanne) and Douglas (Susan,) granddaughters, Erin (Rick ANDREWS) and Sarah (Ken MERCER,) his extended family and the many Friends, colleagues and patients whose lives he touched over 91 years. John's earliest years were spent in the Kirkland Lake area where his father, Dr. John P WILSON, carried on a. general practice serving the local mining communities. Later, the family relocated to Richmond Hill where John grew up, together with his sister Olive 'Betty' and brothers Fred and Eric. In 1937 John realized his dream of following his father into medicine, graduating from the University of Toronto with a specialty in pediatrics. While at medical school John met Marion ROGERS, who was then nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. John and Marion were married on July 15th 1939 and there began a love that simply grew and inspired all those who knew them. John never missed an opportunity to speak lovingly of 'my bride', words he could barely express without choking up, they were so deeply felt. After they were married he and Marion moved to Richmond Hill and John joined his father in medical practice. Because his father was already known to the community as 'Dr. WILSON', John became known to many colleagues and patients as 'Dr. John', a name by which many Friends continued to know him through the years. When World War 2 began, John enlisted (1940) in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a medical officer and served overseas with the 407 'Demon' Squadron, between April, 1944 and November, 1945, attaining the rank of Squadron Leader. John was also mentioned in dispatches. After the war John and Marion, with their two boys, John and Doug, first resided in East York and later, for many years, in Leaside. During these years he joined the staff of the Hospital for Sick Children and established a highly-respected pediatric practice in the north part of Toronto. In 1967 John accepted an appointment as Chief of Pediatrics at the newly-built Scarborough Centenary Hospital. During the following years, until his retirement in 1984, he experienced all the challenges of being at the leading edge of pediatric care in a community-focused hospital. Many innovations, particularly those aimed at supporting parents in the care of their sick children, were developed at Scarborough Centenary Hospital at that time. It was also during this time that John began a long and dedicated commitment to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital. After retiring, John and Marion divided their time between life at their beloved Quaker Ridge Farm in Uxbridge and their winter home, and many Friends, at Lake Fairways in North Fort Myers, Florida. In recent years John and Marion remained active and enthusiastic members of the Uxbridge community enjoying golf, Friends and community activities. John was always sustained by the things he loved the most - his devoted family, his Friends, his faith, his love of the care of children and his many memories of a life well-lived. His family, Friends and community now celebrate that wonderful life. Visitation will take place at the Low and Low Uxbridge Chapel, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge, Ontario (905 852 3073) on Thursday, February 10th, 7: 00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and on Friday, February 11th, 2: 00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Brian BATTEN and the staff of the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for their gentle and skilled care, especially during the past two weeks. At John and Marion's request, a memorial service will be held with the family at a later time. Instead of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation or a charity of choice.

KOERNER, Karin Elizabeth (née VIKSTEN)
Karin E. KOERNER passed away in Victoria, British Columbia on 15 July 2005 after a short but courageous struggle with cancer. Karin is survived and sorely missed by her children Stephen, Marianne (Rodolfo) and James, her sister Marta WILSON of Mill Creek, Washington, granddaughters Francesca and Giuliana and other family members throughout North America and Sweden. She was predeceased by her parents Lisa and Albert VIKSTEN, older brothers Sven and Hans and husband Nicholas KOERNER. Karin was born on 28 January 1928 in Farila, Sweden. She enjoyed a happy childhood being raised in a lively and artistic environment. Karin met Nicholas in 1949 when he visited Sweden on a business trip. They subsequently married, settled in Vancouver, British Columbia and started a family. In 1958 employment opportunities caused them to move to the San Francisco Bay Area. The family returned to Canada in 1967 and created a permanent home in Victoria, British Columbia. Karin was a devoted mother to her children, a loyal friend and someone who touched countless people with her warm and outgoing personality. She was a keen supporter of the arts in general and the Victoria Symphony, Pacific Opera Victoria and the Art Gallery of Victoria in particular. An artist herself, Karin exhibited her paintings at various shows in Canada and the U.S.A. Karin was also a tireless advocate on behalf of the mentally handicapped and served on the board of directors of the Garth Homer Society for many years. One of her proudest achievements was to arrange the English language translation and publication of two books, one of her brother Hans' artwork, the other a collection of writings of her father Albert VIKSTEN which vividly describe his many visits to Canada over the years. The family would like to thank her caregivers including Dr. Gary Nielsen, Sue Bleakley, the Victoria Hospice, South Victoria Home Care Society as well as her Friends Gunvor, Shushan, Muriel and Bill, Barbro and Stephen, Bjorn and Barbara and Fatima who all helped so much during the final weeks of Karin's life. There will be a private memorial service later in the summer. In lieu of flowers, donations to either the Canadian Cancer Society or the Garth Homer Foundation.

Died at age 90 on September 17, 2005, at Wellesley Central Place, having lived fully and independently to within a year of her death. Always a fighter, she stubbornly resisted her brief decline. Predeceased by her husband, geology professor Walter WILSON, she leaves her two children, Owen (Catherine LAHOURATATE) and Ellen (Kenneth KIDD,) and her loving grandchildren, Anne, Emilie and Sarah. Ellie was born April 15, 1915, and was raised in Brooklyn, New York in a family of four sisters and one brother.

She raised her family in Islington and moved, after his death, to Cabbagetown in 1972. Excelling at whatever she undertook, she was a real estate agent and geological reports editor, an intrepid traveller, visiting more than 50 countries, a voracious reader of history, art, architecture and literature, and knowledgeable collector of glass and porcelain. She belonged to a number of cultural societies, including the Arts and Letters Club. A tireless worker, she will be remembered with love, respect and admiration.

WILSON, Elizabeth "Betty" Agnes (née HEFFORD/ TOON)
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Elizabeth (Betty) Agnes WILSON (née HEFFORD/ TOON) wife, sister, mother, aunt, cousin, grandmother, greatgrandmother, friend and lady. Betty died peacefully on September 18th, 2005 at Princess Margaret Hospital at the age of eighty-one surrounded by her loving husband and family. Betty was born July 28, 1924 at Toronto, Ontario. Betty is survived by her husband of 37 years William (Bill) G. WILSON, her son and daughter in law, Garry and Karyn TOON and her daughter, Elizabeth TOON, her four stepsons and their partners: Tony and Susan, George and Myrna, Kevin and Denise, and Scott WILSON, as well as her grandchildren: Maryrose VERNER (née COLEMAN,) Robert COLEMAN, Emily REA (née COLEMAN), Kali COLEMAN; Joanne, Robert, Danielle Mae and Geordie TOON; Emma, Craig, Kelly, Kevin and Christopher WILSON; her brother and sister-in-law, Lloyd and Marylou HEFFORD, along with more than thirty-five cousins, nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren. Betty's absence will be palpable for us all. Betty loved to travel and her journeys with Bill took her the world over. One trip that she talked about often was to South Africa for a photo safari. She also organized a family trip with her cousin Nancy DATTRINO to England, Scotland and Wales on a quest to discover her lineage. Betty and Bill enjoyed winters in Florida away from the cold of Toronto and they would invite family and Friends to come and visit for winter holidays. The tradition of toasting the sunset over the gulf was started at Madeira Beach and continued when they moved to St. Augustine to be closer to her niece Debbie CASCADDEN. There was a cottage at Belmont Lake that was a special place for Betty and her family and is the source of many funny stories. Then later on when Betty and Bill bought a cottage on Paint Lake they would host tremendous parties for the whole gang. When she set the table you felt honoured to be there with her. When Betty had a party there was always dancing, and her husband continued to dance with her right to the end. Betty enjoyed sitting on the deck swing and watching the hummingbirds feed and the evening sunsets were so beautiful over the lake that the whole cottage would be filled with a golden light. Betty was predeceased by her parents, Tom and Mae HEFFORD (née JONES,) her niece Elizabeth-Anne HEFFORD and her grand_son Simon WILSON. Visitation will be held Sunday, September 25th at 11: 00 a.m. followed by a service at 1: 00 pm at Turner and Porter Funeral Home, 436 Roncesvalles Avenue in Toronto, Ontario. The family of Betty WILSON wishes to acknowledge the excellent care and compassion given by the Princess Margaret Hospital staff. Words alone cannot express our thanks for the support given our family during Betty's last days. Donations in Betty's memory may be made to Casey House Hospice, the Scott Mission or a charity of choice.

Week of Remembrance: Evelyn FLEMING/FLEMMING, Army Nurse (1918-2005)
Caring for injured servicemen, she wrote letters for those who had lost their eyesight and fed the men without hands
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, November 8, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Evelyn FLEMING/FLEMMING stared at the cards displaying colourful, swirling designs with mounting dismay. Fighting panic, she tried again to identify the reds, greens, blues and other colours right in front of her face. It was no use. She realized for the first time in her life that she was colour blind and there was absolutely nothing she could do about it.
Waves of disappointment washed over her. It was February of 1944, and Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING, a registered nurse, wanted nothing more than to join the Canadian Army and do her bit for king and country, as millions of Canadians had been doing since 1939, either in the military or on the home front.
There was one very tiny, albeit illegal and irregular, chance left. The medical technician supervising Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING's examination at Ottawa's Lansdowne Park had been her schoolmate years ago. Seeing her extreme disappointment, he decided to take an enormous personal risk and help her.
" 'How badly do you want to go?' he asked her. She said, 'I want to go.' She failed the test, but this school friend falsified [the result] because she really wanted to go and so she got in the army," said Brenda KENNEY, one of Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING's daughters.
Soon after, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING took the oath of allegiance to King George VI and was formally sworn in to the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps as a second lieutenant.
After four months training in the hospitals at Kingston and Camp Debert, Nova Scotia, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING shipped out to Britain with her two best Friends, Brenda WILSON and Hazel PERRIN. The three nurses had become fast Friends and decided to stick together no matter what. In fact, they were known far and wide as the "Three Ottawas."
A week after boarding their ship in Halifax, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and her Friends landed in a Britain reeling from five years of total war. Although the Luftwaffe's blitz had ended years earlier, British service men and women were still fighting and dying all over the world.
Assigned to No. 18 Canadian General Hospital, in Cherry Tree, Colchester, just after the Allies invaded Europe on June 6, 1944, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING quickly adapted to the routine of an Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps hospital at war. Supervised by a formidable matron, she assisted at operations and treated patients in the wards.
It was a hectic and busy time for Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and the other nurses, doctors and orderlies of No. 18, with wounded pouring in every hour of the day and night in their hundreds, fresh from the fighting in Normandy just over the English Channel. Units of the 1st Canadian Army were pushing inland from the beachhead, making good progress but taking their share of casualties.
"By the end of June, nearly 20,000 casualties from the British-Canadian sector had been evacuated to the United Kingdom, almost 3,000 of them Canadian," wrote Colonel G.W.L. NICHOLSON in Seventy Years of Service, a history of the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps.
Col. NICHOLSON described the routine of a typical Canadian hospital, in this case No. 4 Canadian General Hospital four days after D-Day: "A steady flow of patients to and from operating theatres continued all day and into the evening. Nursing sisters toiling in the wards for 18 hours on end lost all sense of self and often had to be reminded to eat. Except for a few difficult cases requiring assistance by a medical officer, sisters were starting all blood, plasma and saline infusions, taking blood pressure, and giving all serum and penicillin injections."
Treating men who were badly disfigured from facial burns particularly affected Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING, Ms. KENNEY said. "They lost their noses and ears. She said that if ever they could see, they couldn't even wear glasses. She called them 'my boys' [and] became very attached to them."
In the evening, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING escorted "her boys" to the local pub for a drink. She wrote letters for those who had lost their eyesight, and fed the men without hands. It was hard for her, but she was glad to help, Ms. KENNEY said. "A lot of them didn't want to go home, wanted to die because they were so disfigured. Their mental anguish really affected her, [but] she was modest about what she did."
Paradoxically, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and her two Friends enjoyed a very active social life -- years later, she told her daughter her dance card was never empty -- at a time when people were determined to grab whatever pleasure they could.
One night, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and her two sidekicks suffered a narrow escape when they returned home from a pub in the blackout. "It was really foggy, pitch black, they couldn't see their hands in front of their faces and they were walking their bikes when they heard a rifle bolt being cocked," said Ms. KENNEY.
Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING and her Friends had walked into a nervous Home Guard patrol. "We were really lucky not to have been killed. It was the most frightening night of my time there," she told her daughter years later.
After the Germans surrendered on May 7, 1945, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING was assigned to an army hospital in Bramshott, Hampshire. In March of 1946, she transferred to another in occupied Germany. For the next two months, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING saw at first hand a devastated Germany and attended a whirlwind round of going-home parties.
After obtaining a certificate in public-health nursing at the University of Toronto in 1948, Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING enlisted in the peacetime army on January 13, 1950. Posted to the big supply depot in Montreal's Longue Pointe, Evelyn MORIN -- as Ms. FLEMING/FLEMMING was known then met her future husband, Lieutenant Stephen FLEMING/FLEMMING of the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.
A year later, on April 4, 1951, they were married in Fort Lewis, Washington. Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING was on his way to the Korean War and he was in a hurry to marry his sweetheart. After a 10-day honeymoon, he shipped out and she returned to Montreal. They didn't see each other for a year.
Evelyn Inez FLEMING/FLEMMING (née MORIN) was born on December 17, 1918, in Cumberland, Ontario She died of a stroke on July 13 in Ottawa. She was 86. She leaves her husband, Stephen, her daughters Brenda, Joanne, Debbie, Lori, son Stephen, and her sisters Margaret and Cairine.

Dottie WILSON
By David WILSON, Friday, November 25, 2005, Page A24
Hospice pioneer, stepmother, wife. Born September 16, 1923, in Aurora, Ontario Died June 1 in Bayside, New York of heart failure, aged 81.
Dottie WILSON fervently believed that the traditional practice of forcing terminally ill patients through a gauntlet of pain in their process of dying, in the unrealistic, faint hope of miraculous recovery was morally indefensible, unnecessary and barbaric. And so in 1974, she became captivated with the new field of hospice and palliative-care medicine, just then being introduced into Canada at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal by Dr. Balfour Mount.
She immersed herself in the hospice movement, becoming the administrator of the palliative care service at the Royal Victoria Hospital, North America's first hospital-based hospice. In 1979, we left Quebec and moved to Chevy Chase, Md., to work with Elm Services Inc., one of the largest U.S. health care consulting firms. As their hospice consultant, she worked internationally with local health care organizations, teaching and encouraging hospice development.
In 1982, after completing a feasibility study of a hospice for children at Saint Mary's Hospital for Children in Bayside, New York Dottie was retained to oversee its design, construction and startup. The facility became the first hospice for children in the world. After its completion, she remained as its director for five years until her retirement.
Born Dorothy Nettie CLARKE in Aurora, Ontario, to Caroline and Ernest CLARKE, she was the second of three children, between older sister Mary Louise and younger brother Douglas.
Many years ago, I asked her father what he thought was the most important thing about a sign for my new store. I was stunned when he answered "that it not fall down." Yet it was fundamental, down-to-earth and revealed his methodical, basic and practical way of thinking. I believe that her father instilled that way of looking at things into her.
After graduating with a degree in sociology from the University of Toronto in 1946, she worked for several years with Dr. Perry Culver at the Massachusetts General Hospital until she moved to Montreal in 1951, where she became a systems and procedures analyst for what was then the RCA Victor company. She then became Canada's first female management consultant with the Montreal accounting firm of Riddell, Stead, Graham and Hutchison.
In 1959, she married David WILSON, a Montreal businessman and later a psychoanalyst and group therapist in New York City. This marriage was her second.
Dottie is remembered for her skill in empowering the infant dreams of nascent startups in the health care field. Her expertise was honed in guiding the development of her husband's many startup projects.
After her retirement from Saint Mary's, Dottie helped Dr. Louis Ormont create the Center for Group Studies. Ironically, Dottie herself was forced into the gauntlet of severe pain by the development of an excruciating ulcer during a recent hospitalization for disorientation. She knew that common hospice protocols for wound care might have avoided this tragedy, so, after weeks of pointless suffering, and recognizing the hopelessness of her situation, she chose to enter a local hospice program. She knew that the hospice focus on the quality of life, rather than clinging to life at any cost, would help her win the relief she deserved.
She is survived by her husband David WILSON, her nephews Rory CAMERON, Gordon CAMERON and David CLARKE, and her nieces Susan CAMERON, Margaret McCUTCHEON, Wendy ZAROWSKI and Sandra RANA. Stepsons David Andrew WILSON, Daniel Thompson WILSON and Douglas S. WILSON will sorely miss her.
David is Dottie's husband.

Charles Clarence "Clare" LAKING, Veteran (1899-2005)
Canadian veteran of First World War learned hard work on the front lines
By Joe FRIESEN and David PYETTE, Monday, November 28, 2005, Page S11
Clare LAKING, a farm boy from Campbellville, Ontario, who never finished high school, volunteered for the Great War to spite his father and narrowly avoided being killed on his first trip to the front.
The first shell he saw landed 45 metres away. He started wondering what he had gotten himself into. A second shell came so close that he dropped to the ground in terror. Before he could get up, a third shell landed right in his trench, showering him with dirt and debris.
Mr. LAKING survived his first brush with death, and lived through many more in his two years as a signalman who repaired communication lines at the front.
Mr. LAKING died Saturday at the age of 106. There are now only four Canadian veterans of the First World War still living.
Charles Clarence LAKING, named for his father Charles, but known as Clare, was born on February 21, 1899, on a farm in Southern Ontario. He attended a one-room school five kilometres from his home, and grew up playing hockey on the flooded, frozen fields near the school.
In an interview a few years before his death, Mr. LAKING, who was always a keen joker despite his strict Methodist upbringing, remembered walking to school with his older brother Bob in a particularly harsh snowstorm. When they arrived, they were the only ones there.
"The storm was too severe for everybody else. We had our lunch with us, we were cold and hungry and we didn't want to start back home right away. So we filed the padlock off the door, went out to the woodshed, and got the fire going. We spent most of the day catching mice and putting them in the girls' pencil boxes. Most of the mice smothered before the next morning, but it was still quite a surprise for the girls."
After he finished elementary school, Mr. LAKING commuted by train to a business college in Hamilton for six months. At 16, he took a job in Campbellville with the Bank of Nova Scotia that paid $300 a year.
Two years later, in 1917, he hitched a ride to Guelph and joined the army.
"I went against my father's wishes. He was dead against war, and he was getting under my skin," Mr. LAKING said. "And it was in order -- as much as anything -- to shut him up that I enlisted.
"He as much as told me at the time that, 'If you enlist I'm through with you.' It was a hard decision. Nevertheless, I carried through and enlisted. And when I came back, everything was fine. Everything was forgiven."
Mr. LAKING was sent to England, where he trained as a Morse code operator before being sent to the front.
"In fact I could have had a nice soft job in England for the balance of the war, because they knew I had worked for a bank, and I was in the orderly room for a couple of months there. But I thought: 'I have come this far, let's go on.' "
The next two years were filled with adventure and sorrow, as many of the young Canadians he served with died in battle. But the best feeling came at war's end, as he travelled through liberated villages, and people lined the roads to wave and cheer.
He came home to Canada intending to move to Alberta, but ended up working in lumber yards. It was in the late 1920s that he began courting a legal secretary named Helen PATTERSON.
One night he was on his way to Helen's parents' house for a Saturday supper. He was wearing his best fedora, navy blue overcoat and white silk scarf.
"In those days they had iced toboggan slides in Riverdale Park. I met some boys there who persuaded me to come for a ride on the toboggan. At the bottom of the toboggan slide the light standards were surrounded by manure piles to guard against any accident.
"The toboggan headed right for the manure pile. I was lying on the bottom of the toboggan with the rest of the guys on top of me, so I couldn't get off. I rolled into the manure pile wearing my Sunday best. Then I had to visit Helen's parents."
Nevertheless, they were married in 1929, just before the stock market crash, and a year later their son Keith was born, followed by their daughter Sheila six years later.
In 1941, Mr. LAKING bought his own business, Danforth Wallboard, in Toronto's East End, and kept it for close to 25 years before selling in 1965.
Throughout his life he was an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and held season tickets until the age of 100. He was to have been honoured at a ceremony at the Air Canada Centre this month, but couldn't attend due to his failing health.
He was also an avid curler, who once scored an rare eight-ender, a feat of perfection when all eight of the team's rocks are closer to the centre circle than any of the opposition's.
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime feat, if you're lucky," he once said.
After retirement, he and Helen travelled the world together and spent time with their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Helen died in 1993, and Mr. LAKING moved into the veterans residence at Sunnybrook hospital in 2003. He was in good health until a few weeks before his death, and kept a driver's licence until the age of 102.
The four remaining Canadian veterans of the First World War are Lloyd CLEMETT, 105, who is also at Sunnybrook; John BABCOCK, 105, who lives in Spokane, Washington.; William PROCTOR, 106, now residing in Salmon Arm, British Columbia; and Dwight WILSON, 104, a resident of Oshawa, Ontario

Kenneth LAURIN, Immediate Past President of the Hospital Auxiliary and member of the Board.

Ken was born in Montreal on February 17, 1924, was educated at Daniel O'Connell school, and volunteered for service with the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943. He qualified as a Pilot Officer and survived some of the most dangerous flying of the war on Wellington bombers in Europe and later on air transport over "the hump" of the Hymalayas in support of the British Army in Burma. He continued to fly in the Reserves after the war until the advent of jet fighters convinced him that accounting was his true calling. Ken and Emmy lived in Montreal for many years, and built a beautiful vacation home at Jay Peak in Vermont that they continued to retreat to after moving to Toronto in 1980 and on to Oakville in 1989. Ken was a man of tremendous charm and charisma, combined with a savvy and determined mind. His personal talents seemed limitless, from stained glass work through music and writing. His last days were spent surrounded by the love of Friends and family, and concerned and professional care from the staff of Three East at Oakville Trafalgar.

ROBERTS, Susanne (née WILSON)
On Sunday, November 20, 2005 in Los Angeles, of a sarcoma, Susanne ROBERTS, daughter of Ferne and Bud WILSON of Visalia, California, mother of Daniel and Camille ROBERTS, and formerly married to Neal ROBERTS. Susanne, (known as Bede to her family and many of her Friends) was born on December 3, 1946 and grew up in Visalia. A graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, she trained and worked as a teacher before marrying Neal ROBERTS. They lived first in India and then in Toronto where Neal was on the faculty of Osgoode Hall Law School between 1971 and 1981, with an interval of two years at the University of Warwick in England. Both their children were born in Toronto. During this time Susanne developed her enthusiasm and expertise as a potter and for a time worked professionally for an English ceramics firm. Her talent as a potter was characterized by speed and daring, and her pieces are treasured by her Friends and admirers. The family moved to Santa Monica, and subsequently Susanne returned to live in Visalia in 1996 where she was a dedicated and admired elementary school teacher. Her vibrant personality, sense of humour and intelligence touched a wide circle of Friends wherever she lived.
A service in celebration of her life was followed by, as she instructed, a large and joyful party at her house in Visalia on Saturday afternoon, December 3.

No smoke alarms in fatal fire
Retired couple die in bedroom; heavy smokers, police say
son frantically tries to douse fire with garden hose
By Leslie FERENC, Staff Reporter
A man who frantically tried to put out a blaze at his Scarborough home with a garden hose was unable to save his retired parents who were trapped in their second-floor bedroom.
Police say both Jack WILSON, 68, and his wife Sharon, 61, were heavy smokers and there were no smoke alarms in the home.
Emergency crews were called to 121 Hildenboro Square near Warden and McNicoll Aves. just after midnight Tuesday where they discovered the couple's son, Trevor WILSON, trying to put out the fire. Trevor, a Canada Post employee, had come home from work to find black smoke billowing from the house.
The couple was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead. Autopsies were being performed yesterday to determine the cause of death.
The Ontario Fire Marshal's Office is also investigating.
Fire officials say the blaze likely started in the kitchen but wouldn't confirm if it had been ignited by a smouldering cigarette tossed into a trash bin.
A melted plastic garbage can with cigarette butts was clearly visible amongst the charred debris sitting outside the front door of the home yesterday.
Fire Chief Bill STEWARD/STEWART/STUART confirmed there were no smoke alarms in the house.
"In this case, smoke alarms could most certainly have made the difference between life and death," he said in a release yesterday. Neighbour Chris BABANARAS, who has lived across the street from the WILSONs for 22 years, cried as he sat in his garage looking at their home, the smell of smoke still heavy in the air.
"They were a very nice family, a very quiet family," he said of Jack, a retired engineer, and wife Sharon, a nurse, and their two adult sons, Trevor and older brother Carey.
"It's hard to believe that I saw him (Jack) yesterday and he waved to me. I can't believe they are now gone."
A woman, who would only identify herself as a family friend, laid two bouquets of pink carnations next to a tree on the WILSONs' front lawn.
She said the couple's sons were together yesterday and "were pretty struck" by the deaths.
Neighbour David MILLER said he grew up with the WILSONs' sons, now in their late 20s and early 30s, and described the family as "quiet, nice people." He said he often saw Jack WILSON outside with Carey's young children.
"This is very sad and very tragic," MILLER added.
Lenny SPATAFORA, who lives directly across the street, said he arrived home about 11: 30 p.m. Monday "and didn't see anything unusual." About 20 minutes later, he could smell smoke.
"I thought my parents had been cooking and had burned something on the stove," he said yesterday.
SPATAFORA described the WILSONs as a great family.
"It's so sad to see this happen."
Yellow police tape cordoned off the property yesterday as fire officials continued their investigation.
Charred walls in the hallway of the house were clearly visible as the front door of the home remained open for most of the day yesterday. Blackened curtains fluttered through the broken windows of the front bedroom on the second floor.

WILSON, Dr. W. John, M.D., (F.R.C.P.C)
Passed away peacefully at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital on Saturday, February 5th, 2005. John is sadly missed and proudly remembered by his beloved wife, Marion, his sons, John (Susanne) and Douglas (Susan,) granddaughters, Erin (Rick ANDREWS) and Sarah (Ken MERCER,) his extended family and the many Friends, colleagues and patients whose lives he touched over 91 years. John's earliest years were spent in the Kirkland Lake area where his father, Dr. John P. WILSON, carried on a general practice serving the local mining communities. Later, the family relocated to Richmond Hill where John grew up, together with his sister Olive "Betty" and brothers Fred and Eric. In 1937 John realized his dream of following his father into medicine, graduating from the University of Toronto with a specialty in pediatrics. While at medical school John met Marion ROGERS, who was then nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. John and Marion were married on July 15th, 1939 and there began a love that simply grew and inspired all those who knew them. John never missed an opportunity to speak lovingly of "my bride", words he could barely express without choking up, they were so deeply felt. After they were married he and Marion moved to Richmond Hill and John joined his father in medical practice. Because his father was already known to the community as "Dr. WILSON," John became known to many colleagues and patients as "Dr. John", a name by which many Friends continued to know him through the years. When World War 2 began, John enlisted (1940) in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a medical officer and served overseas with the 407 "Demon" Squadron, between April, 1944 and November, 1945, attaining the rank of Squadron Leader. John was also mentioned in dispatches. After the war John and Marion, with their two boys, John and Doug, first resided in East York and later, for many years, in Leaside. During these years he joined the staff of the Hospital for Sick Children and established a highly-respected pediatric practice in the north part of Toronto. In 1967 John accepted an appointment as Chief of Pediatrics at the newly-built Scarborough Centenary Hospital. During the following years, until his retirement in 1984, he experienced all the challenges of being at the leading edge of pediatric care in a community-focused hospital. Many innovations, particularly those aimed at supporting parents in the care of their sick children, were developed at Scarborough Centenary Hospital at that time. It was also during this time that John began a long and dedicated commitment to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital. After retiring, John and Marion divided their time between life at their beloved Quaker Ridge Farm in Uxbridge and their winter home, and many Friends, at Lake Fairways in North Fort Myers, Florida. In recent years John and Marion remained active and enthusiastic members of the Uxbridge community enjoying golf, Friends and community activities. John was always sustained by the things he loved the most - his devoted family, his Friends, his faith, his love of the care of children and his many memories of a life well-lived. His family, Friends and community now celebrate that wonderful life. Visitation will take place at the Low and Low Uxbridge Chapel, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge, Ontario (905 852-3073) on Thursday, February 10th, 7: 00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and on Friday, February 11th, 2: 00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Brian BATTEN and the staff of the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for their gentle and skilled care, especially during the past two weeks. At John and Marion's request, a memorial service will be held with the family at a later time. Instead of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation or a charity of choice.

NOVAK, Dr. George Martin, Ph.D., Dipl. Math., B.Sc.
It is with deep sorrow that the family announces the passing in his 80th year of Dr. George Martin NOVAK, beloved husband, father and Opa. George died suddenly and peacefully in Intensive Care at Centenary Health Centre on Tuesday, March 15, 2005 with his entire family by his side. He will be missed by his wife of 50 years, Rosemarie, his two children Alex (Sharon) and Hellen (Alan) CANAVAN, and his grandchildren Jessica, Jason, Jeffrey and Sarah. He is also survived by his sister Marcuka and brother Jarozlav, both living in Germany. George was born on October 25, 1924 in Prague, Czechoslovakia. Following World War 2, George moved to Germany. It was in Cologne where George met and married his beloved Rosemarie and received his Ph.D. in mathematics. Some things that made George particularly proud include: being crowned Prince of Mardi Gras in 1974/75 with Rosemarie as his Princess; his role as President of the Club Old Severin; watching both of his children graduate from university; the birth of his 4 grandchildren; family vacations in Holland, Florida and Niagara Falls, to name only a few; tinkering around in his workshop which, among other things, allowed him to hold various patents in his name. In the last year of this life George spent much of his time sitting at his computer restoring old family photos. The wonders of digital photography provided George with a whole new means by which to catalogue his family history. He also enjoyed a weekend in Niagara Falls with Rosemarie, many family celebrations and dinners, and time spent working on the last of his many inventions, this time with his good friend Dr. Murray WILSON. He will be sadly missed by family and Friends. A funeral service will be held at the Scarborough Funeral Centre, 2966 Eglinton Avenue East (just west of Bellamy Road), 416-289-2558, on Saturday, March 19th at 11 a.m. with visitation two hours prior.

VAN BOSKIRK, Margaret " Meg" (née WILSON)
Meg passed away in Santa Cruz, California, on December 27, 2004, just three days before her 96th birthday. Meg was born and raised in Toronto, on Delaware Ave., north of Bloor St. After completing school, she ventured south and settled in Chicago for 20 years, before moving to Santa Cruz in 1983. She owned and operated a sporting goods store in Chicago for many years, and was active there in martial arts youth programs. In Santa Cruz she was a charter member of the Scotts Valley Senior Centre, where she participated in Seniorama for many years. She was an avid singer and actress, and wrote songs and skits for the revue and for senior shows. Her elaborate costumes were her own design and making. She also volunteered as a suicide prevention telephone counsellor. She enjoyed helping seniors, and, until near the end, driving them about. Meg always remembered the Toronto of her youth. Her visits to the city became fewer as the years passed, but when she came she liked to go and visit the old neighbourhood of Delaware near Hallam. Much changed over the years, the old Friends passed on or moved away, but much stayed the same. Her memories remained fresh. Her husband, James VAN BOSKIRK, and son, Harry Lee SMITH, died before her. She is survived by her grand_son, Maj. Shawn SMITH, United States Air Force of Monterey, California; and by her daughter, Marilyn AMOS and her husband Earl of Scotts Valley; two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. In Toronto she is survived by her nephew Fred WILSON and his wife Linda ROTHMAN, and their two daughters. At Mrs. VAN BOSKIRK's request, there were no formal services. Contributions are preferred in her memory to the donor's local senior centre or favourite charity.

He made every day a good hair day
Yorkville hair colourist worked until age 91
Bon vivant and master of his craft beloved by clients
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Legendary hair colourist Pierre TESSIER was on the job up until the week before he was admitted to hospital where he died three weeks later on February 17. Even though he was 91 years old, he never had any intention of ever stopping work.
At The Private World of Mary Tripi, the upscale Yorkville hair salon where he was employed for the last decade of his life, there's a sweeping spiral staircase that leads up to a big, bright room overlooking the old fire hall across the street. Every morning he would pause at the top of the stairs, an erect dapper figure, immaculate in one of his starched shirts and silk cravats, and beam at his co-workers. Mary TRIPI herself works at the station at the top of the stairs.
"It was a wonderful smile," she said.
A client recommended she hire TESSIER but warned her he was old. "Then I met him," she recalled. "He wasn't old. He had a magic. He was the age he was -- but also he wasn't."
He loved this world of artistry and egos, power and pampering, where four days a week he engaged in the curious intimacy forged between a woman and the man or woman she trusts with her hair.
TESSIER may have been the last colourist in Toronto using a technique for highlighting he had learned from his father and grandfather in his birthplace of France: a laborious process involving cotton balls and hours of his client's time. "Very old school," said his colleague, Nicholas VRETTAKOS. " You need a lot of patience. But he had more than 60 years experience. He was a master at what he did."
His workstation was the fourth chair in the colourist row, between Monique SANJAREI and VRETTAKOS, who both adored him. He was in the middle of things, where he liked to be.
On his lunch breaks he would look out over the salon with its cool green walls and softly lit mirrors, where women in salon wrappers, hair combed in damp furrows back from unadorned faces, feel safe, protected.
"I was addicted to him," said Sherry Eaton DREW. TESSIER streaked her hair for 37 years. "It was horrifically slow but absolute perfection."
She was stopped by strangers on the streets of Rome, Paris and London and asked for the name of her hairdresser, she said. "He was a maestro."
He turned down a request from actor Maggie Smith to do her colour when she was performing at Stratford. She wanted him to go to Stratford; he thought she should come to the salon. It didn't happen and he didn't care.
"He didn't need the accolades of doing Maggie Smith's hair," said his friend, Carole WILSON.
TESSIER became Friends with a good many of his clients. They were all blindly loyal to him: Margann ANDREWS followed TESSIER through four hairdressing salons to Tripi's, where TESSIER arrived with a file of 350 names of clients willing to pay upwards of $250 for colour and highlighting.
"He always made me feel special," ANDREWS said. "He saw the beauty in everything: people and paintings."
Carolyn WALKER began as a client in 1974. "I found him totally interesting," she said. WALKER had worked for the U.N. in Geneva they found they had much in common. "It was never gossip, never empty talk. He was a man of substance. His conversation was about ideas and culture and travel and food."
And, if asked, about his adventures.
The son of a barber and hair salon owner, and the grand_son of a wigmaker for the Paris Opera, TESSIER's own career began in the late 1920s when he apprenticed at a Paris salon from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., when it was busy repairing the coiffeurs of the women who worked at the bordello below. He quit to join the army and see the world for the next three years. Back in Paris, he was working in the storied salon at the Georges V hotel, when World War 2 broke out.
By 1940 he was a prisoner of war, interned in a stalag near Baden-Baden, from which he escaped twice, one of those times disguised as a woman. But when he and a buddy were recaptured the second time, they were moved to a higher security Prisoner of War camp near Düsseldorf and shackled together in a small cell for weeks. As soon as they were released, they escaped again. They thought they had made it into Belgium; they hadn't and were recaptured.
Again he escaped, this time during the Allied air raid on Cologne in 1943 and with the help of the Resistance, got to England where he joined de Gaulle's Free French. On D-Day he was hitting Sword Beach with commandos, but when the war was over, he didn't settle down and return to the salon. Instead he enlisted in the French Foreign Legion because he wanted to travel.
He was posted in North Africa and later Indo-China where he was captured and held prisoner again. And one more time, he escaped. But it took him two years to get back to the Legion's outpost in Morocco, he often said.
He was ready to get back to work. He rejoined the staff at the Georges V hotel, later moved to Monte Carlo and Cannes where he famously did Marlene Dietrich's hair. He met and married a beautiful Parisienne ballerina named Lucienne with whom he had a son. But in 1957, restless again, he moved the family to Montreal where he had a new job as head of the newly opened salon at the Ritz-Carleton hotel.
But 10 years later, he moved to Toronto. Alone. His wife had died, after a long battle with cancer. And his son? TESSIER rarely told people this, but his son returned to France and refused to speak with his father, whom he accused of not spending enough time with his dying mother. TESSIER never heard from him again, although he tried on at least two occasions to locate him.
This was not one of the stories he ever told his clients; instead he would chat about his travels, the latest art show or ballet or French film in town. But only when asked. He was a quiet man by nature, focused on his work.
In Toronto he met Anna WILSON, a glamorous Scotswoman in the fashion business. They were an elegant pair, hosting sparkling dinner parties featuring French recipes prepared by TESSIER and only the best wine.
"They were modern people, so interested in everything going on in the city," recalled Carole WILSON, who married Anna WILSON's son Patrick. A francophone from Quebec, Carole WILSON was taken under TESSIER's wing. Their Friendship continued until his death, even after WILSON was divorced from his stepson and after Anna WILSON's death.
"He was like a father to me," she said. "We were his family."
TESSIER worked in some of Toronto's best-known salons -- for Vicki Runge, Gerald and Lloyd, Monroe's in the Colonnade -- before joining Mary Tripi. When he turned 80, dozens of his clients and colourists whom he had trained turned up at Bumpkin's Restaurant for a surprise party. When he turned 90, the staff at Mary Tripi took him out to dinner and gave him a surprise trip to the Greek islands. On his 91st birthday (last April 13) he slipped away to Montreal to see an art show and old Friends. Last September, he rented an apartment in Montmartre and wandered through his old haunts in Paris.
When he fell ill with pneumonia at the end of January, clients and colleagues rushed to his bedside. His hospital room resembled a garden, one said. WILSON was there every night. WALKER spent hours by his bedside.
Sherry DREW was there every day for two weeks -- "He was my friend. How could I not?" she said -- until she had to travel out of town four days before he died. She walked down the hallway weeping because she knew she would never see him again.
She and the staff of Mary Tripi are fundraising for a scholarship in TESSIER's name. It will go to a student of hair colouring. They believe it is a fitting tribute to a man who always did his best work so that women, as DREW put it, "can go out feeling wonderful and invincible."

KING- WILSON, Joy Donna (née CREYK) (May 10, 1919-March 18, 2005)
Joy's daughter Norma sorrowfully announces the death of her dearly loved mother. Joy was born on May 10, 1919 to Vera and James CREYK in Toronto, a sad yet joyous day for Vera as her husband James, Joy's father, had died November 1918 of influenza. Joy attended Northern Secondary and the Bishop Strachan School before serving in Washington, D.C. during the Second World War for four years. Joy returned to Toronto and married James Patrick KING- WILSON at Timothy Eaton Church on Guy Fawkes Day, November 5, 1953. Joy and Patrick had two children, Norma in 1955 and John in 1957. After her divorce, Joy went to work for her mother, Vera at Shoppe d'Or Ltd. at 119 Yorkville Avenue, which her mother founded in 1945. Joy retired from Shoppe D'Or on July 1, 1987, Canada Day, and drove herself at the tender age of 67, all the way across the country to Victoria, alone. A feat she was exceedingly proud of and which gave her daughter many anxious days. Joy had a marvelous house with fabulous gardens that she tended with love and peacefulness for 16 years on the incomparably beautiful Vancouver Island in Broadmead, Victoria, British Columbia. Her home was a safe haven and filled with Friends from near and far, young and old. Joy moved to the Lodge at Broadmead in August 2001 after a series of health issues. Joy leaves her daughter Norma Victoria KING- WILSON, her son John William KING- WILSON, her beloved cousin Marilyn PIDDINGTON, Pasadena, California, her brother Hugh SYKES of Victoria, British Columbia, and her step-children Marianne KING- WILSON (Dr. Roger GOULD) of Parry Sound, Ontario; Pamela KING- WILSON, Vancouver, British Columbia; Susan KING- WILSON (Chas) Vancouver, British Columbia; James KING- WILSON, England; also her Friends in Broadmead - Connie MacGregor and Sheila and Bill Chauven. Extremely heartfelt thanks to all the caregivers of the Lodge at Broadmead and to Jean Muir, all love and gratitude. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23rd.

Fergus, Ontario -- In shock from seeing her son's body, a Toronto woman forgot about her other two boys. And then the unthinkable happened.
One boy drowned and his two young brothers were airlifted to hospital yesterday after being discovered in an unsupervised swimming area at a conservation area in Fergus, near Guelph.
Larry LE, 9, was pronounced dead at Groves Memorial Hospital in Fergus.
Calvin LE, 7, was taken to Groves Memorial and later airlifted to Toronto Sick Children's Hospital, police said. Anthony LE, 8, was airlifted to McMaster Hospital in Hamilton and is listed in critical condition, police said last night.
"He's doing better," the boys' uncle said of Calvin, as he stood with a group of relatives last night outside Sick Kids. "He's breathing on his own now."
The uncle, who did not want to be identified, said both parents were at the Toronto hospital and were heading to Hamilton late last night.
The parents, who are in their 30s and live on Jane St. in North York, were at the park for a day trip. They have no other children.
It was the second drowning in the area this weekend. On Saturday, a Kitchener man drowned at the Dolime Quarry just outside of Guelph.
In Fergus, about 200 people watched early in the afternoon as Larry was pulled out of the water onto the crowded beach at Belwood Lake Conservation Area, said Keith WHITTAKER, a 50-year-old Toronto resident who was fishing nearby with his son.
"People were trying to save him, and it didn't look like they were doing so well," WHITTAKER said, his voice breaking.
It wasn't until someone was attempting to resuscitate Larry that the mother realized she didn't know where her other two children were.
"All of a sudden she cried out that her other two sons were missing," WHITTAKER said. "It was terrible."
A group of bystanders frantically searched the water for about 10 minutes before someone spotted the other boys under water, said WHITTAKER's 22-year-old son, Mark.
"It was the worst day of my life... if only we knew the other two kids were missing when we were all watching to make sure the first boy was living, we might have been able to do more," he said.
The Toronto brothers were found in about a metre of water in an area where beach-goers were swimming just before the first boy was pulled from the water, Keith WHITTAKER said.
"We were going crazy trying to find them, but the water was so thick... it almost made it impossible to see anything.
"Finally, somebody bumped into a body."
The older WHITTAKER said all three boys "looked lifeless."
One portion of the swimming area is fenced off for children -- it doesn't get any deeper than about a metre. Keith WHITTAKER said the bodies were found outside the kids' area, where Grand River Conservation Authority spokesperson Dave SCHULTZ said it gets as deep as 4.5 metres.
Emergency crews, including Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police and two helicopter ambulances, arrived at 1: 50 p.m. -- about 20 minutes after the second and third boys were found, said Const. Jennifer SMITH.
"This is an extremely tragic incident, and obviously the boys' mother is upset," SMITH said.
Keith WHITTAKER said waiting for the emergency crews "felt like an eternity. Bystanders said the boys' mother was having trouble communicating with emergency response crews.
"She was screaming for her sons, that's all we know for sure," WHITTAKER said. "I just wish we could have done more."
Visitors to the spot are confronted by an 2.4 by 2.4 metre sign that reads: "Beach patrol services have been discontinued... Do not leave children unattended."
The conservation authority's SCHULTZ said the beach patrol was cut in 1996 when funding from the provincial government dwindled.
"They weren't necessarily trained in emergency response, but having another set of eyes sometimes helped," he said. The authority will examine if system changes need to be made, SCHULZ said.
Extreme weekend heat was also a "likely contributing factor" in the drowning of a Kitchener man on Saturday night, SMITH said.
Three men had taken a cab from Kitchener to cool off and take a swim in the quarry, police said. The 28-year-old man, whose name was not released, jumped into the water at the Dolime Quarry at County Road 124 and Kossuth Road.
He came up once, waved his arms, went back under and did not resurface, police said.
One of the man's Friends called 911 but emergency personnel were not able to locate the victim.

Police seek killing motive
Man found dead in Woodbridge Shot in home invasion robbery
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
Forensic investigators spent the weekend searching for clues in a Woodbridge home, hoping to discover what led to the killing of a 45-year-old man Friday.
York Region police said Carlo DIMATTEO died of a gunshot wound during a home invasion robbery at his home on Cipriano Court in the area of Rutherford and Vaughan Mills Rds.
"It was a robbery, but we can't reveal whether anything was taken," York homicide Detective Larry WILSON said yesterday.
Police won't reveal whether DIMATTEO, who worked at the Brampton Chrysler Plant, was targeted. "As far as I know, it had nothing to do with his job," WILSON said.
DIMATTEO made a frantic 911 call about 10 a.m. on Friday, moments after investigators believe he was shot.
Investigators said he revealed little during his call, except that he was injured in a robbery.
DIMATTEO, who was alone in the home at the time of the shooting, died at Sunnybrook hospital about 11: 30 a.m. Neighbours said five people, including three children, lived in the posh two-storey home, which remains cordoned off by police.
Meanwhile, York police have yet to confirm whether a man who collapsed in the driveway of the Pinecrest Motel on Highway 7 in Concord on Friday at about 11: 50 a.m. was also the victim of a homicide. Police said the unidentified man died a short time later in hospital.
