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!

School mourns teen killed by freight train
By Kelly PEDRO and Jon WILLING, Free Press Reporter; Special to The Free Press
Students at a Woodstock high school paid tribute yesterday to a classmate killed when he ran into the path of a freight train Tuesday night. Marc MATTHEWS, 17, of Embro, was killed instantly, police said.
"This is going to be one of those tragedies that shakes up the community," said Oxford Community police Const. Bob McDONALD.
Staff and students at College Avenue secondary school spent yesterday remembering MATTHEWS, a Grade 11 student.
"It's a sad loss when there's a sad, tragic accident," principal Judy THORNER said.
An announcement of MATTHEW's death was made to the school. Students signed a long piece of paper in the school's guidance office and wrote tributes to MATTHEWS.
After classes yesterday, students described MATTHEWS as a likable classmate.
"He was a good kid," Billy HARRIS, 15, said.
"I was weak today," Bobby WALKER, 16, said. "He was one of my best Friends."
MATTHEWS's uncle, Randy LOVE, said the teen loved outdoor activities, including skateboarding and swimming.
"He liked to do dirt biking and rollerblading," LOVE said, noting MATTHEWS was always willing to help those close to him. "If he could help you out, he would."
MATTHEWS was walking about 8: 45 p.m. when the lights and gates at a rail crossing on Wilson Street in the city's downtown were activated, police said.
Police aren't sure why MATTHEWS bolted across the tracks, where he was hit by a westbound Canadian National freight, said McDONALD.
Investigators are trying to determine if MATTHEWS was alone and where he was going.
Police ask anyone who saw what happened to call them at 537-2323.
The train was en route from Toronto to Sarnia.
The crew asked for relief at the scene and was replaced, said Canadian National's Ian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
The tracks were closed until about midnight.
The crossing is in one of the heaviest freight corridors, said THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, with about 40 Canadian National freight trains travelling through it every day.

Crash victim had faced serious adversity
Kevin SEAMAN, who was killed by a train Tuesday, once spent six months in a coma.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
Kevin David SEAMAN was a loving son who brought his father a chocolate bar nearly every day. The 38-year-old London man died Tuesday after he was hit by a Canadian National freight train while cycling across the tracks at Hale and Trafalgar streets.
SEAMAN had faced adversity, but overcame it, his family said yesterday.
In 1989, he and two brothers were in Toronto to see his beloved Western Mustangs win the Vanier Cup. He was crossing the street when a car came flying around a corner and hit him.
The crash left SEAMAN in a coma for six months with serious head injuries.
Although he survived, his injuries meant he could never work again.
"His left arm could never properly function again. He did all right for the amount of injuries he had, but he had a lot of short-term memory problems," his brother, Rod, said yesterday.
That didn't stop SEAMAN from becoming a walking phone book, having nearly every phone number he knew at the tip of his tongue.
The second-youngest of 10 children, SEAMAN was a doting son, brother and uncle to 19 nieces and nephews.
"He was very family-oriented. He loved his family and Friends," his sister, Sandra McDONALD, said yesterday.
The family would often get together and play euchre.
Since the Toronto crash, SEAMAN had lived with his parents and faced tragedy in October when his mother died.
"That was really hard on him," Rod SEAMAN said.
SEAMAN was born and raised in London and went to Laurier secondary school.
A football and hockey fan, he liked all types of music.
"He could listen to Metallica and then he could listen to John Denver," Rod SEAMAN said.
SEAMAN also had a way to bring a quick smile with his "corny" sense of humour, said his brother.
He often became restless and liked to ride his bicycle.
"He'd get bored very easily and go to the coffee shop," Rod SEAMAN said.
"It was hard to stop him. We warned him about going out. But he was the restless type," Rod SEAMAN said.
"He didn't want to sit still."
On Tuesday, SEAMAN was on his way home when he was hit by the train, his brother said.
Police believe SEAMAN misjudged the speed and distance of the train.
SEAMAN was the second cyclist to die at Hale and Trafalgar streets in three years.
On Aug, 9, 2002, cyclist Terra Joy RAWNSLEY, 20, died when she went around the gates and was hit by a passenger train.
City council voted last year to go ahead with the first phase of a $11.5-million overpass over the Canadian National tracks at the crossing.
Proponents of the overpass said it would eliminate fatalities and traffic backups caused by slow-moving trains.

Talented man recalled through his own work
Win SCHELL's Friends will honour his memory with a 90-minute show.
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter
London renaissance man Win SCHELL was held in such high regard by his Friends they're honouring him seven months after his sudden death. They're celebrating his wit, wisdom and whimsy in a public way by shining a light on them at Central secondary school Friday night.
Following a 90-minute showcase of SCHELL's many talents, they'll move to another venue for a social event, a kind of belated wake.
The death of Winston George SCHELL -- a teacher, writer, publisher, artist and folksinger -- at the age of 61 took people by surprise last September, said Sue CASSAN, an organizer of the tribute to him. He died of a brain hemorrhage.
"It was so sudden, it came as a shock," she said, adding some Friends approached his wife, Linda GREGSON, with the idea of holding a memorial event at a later date to honour SCHELL.
"Win was a remarkable person, a man of many talents and interests," CASSAN said. "He ran in a lot of circles. He had a lot of Friends."
By occupation, SCHELL was a teacher of English and media studies who plied his trade at Banting and Central secondary schools and at the Wheable Centre for Adult Education.
He was the head of the English departments at Central and Wheable, said CASSAN, who taught with him at both schools.
"He inspired a lot of students," she said. "They loved him."
In the community, SCHELL was known as the founder of Ergo Books, a small publishing company that gave a number of London writers their start or the opportunity to publish books that didn't fit the criteria of bigger publishers.
Ergo's authors were an eclectic bunch, including playwright James REANEY, Herman GOODDEN, Gloria MULCAHY, Mary Ann MICRO, Jaroslav HAVELKA and London's well-known street persona, Roy McDONALD.
SCHELL's own works included Reading, Writing and Radio, co-authored with Marstan WOOLLINGS, that was used as a school text.
SCHELL released two albums of original music in a folk style, Any Directions and City Wilderness. He also penned Riverside Tom, a song about the wild turkey that created a stir in London a couple of years ago.
"It was a funny song that reflected Win's great sense of humour that was always close to the surface," CASSAN said. "Even his recipes and school department minutes could make you laugh."
Memorials usually feature people talking about the departed, but Friday's event will be a presentation of SCHELL's essays, poetry, music and one of his short plays by his Friends.
Some of his paintings will also be available for sale, CASSAN said.
Donations will also be collected to establish a scholarship in Win's name at the Thames Valley District school board, she said.

Man dies after dive at Trout Lake Park
By Hugo RODRIGUES, Special to The Free Press
Woodstock -- A Kitchener man hurt in a diving accident at Trout Lake Park has died, the park's second water-related fatality in 10 days.
Patrick Darrell GRAY/GREY, 34, died yesterday at London Health Sciences Centre, police said.
The case has been turned over to a coroner in London, who was to perform an autopsy yesterday.
On Saturday, GRAY/GREY jumped from the highest diving board at the former quarry in Innerkip and struck another swimmer's knee with his head as he hit the water, Oxford Community police said.
GRAY/GREY had not waited for the area to clear before jumping, police said.
Former Woodstock resident James DRABICK, 22, died after jumping off the same, 6.5-metre diving board at the park on June 26.
Police can only appeal to the public's common sense to guard against such tragedies in the water, said Oxford Const. Bob McDONALD.
"It's impossible to legislate common sense," he said.
Swimming areas such as Trout Lake Park or the Pittock Conservation Area are private and a grey area when it comes to minimum safety standards, which are applied to supervised swimming areas, said Mike BRAGG, Oxford County director of public health and emergency services.
"It doesn't meet the definition of a public swimming area," he said.
This year is not the first time tragedy has struck at Trout Lake. There have been at least three other drownings at the park since Leonard Eugene WEILER drowned June 12, 1988, when he went swimming at the park after drinking and smoking hashish.
Two scuba divers died at the park during a winter dive.
The owners of the dive school were found negligent in that incident in 1991.
A Kitchener resident was injured at the park June 13, 1993, when he dived into the lake and struck some rocks.

Or hear your last faint sigh
I only heard that you were gone
Too late to say goodbye and for that I'll

My silent tears still flow
For what it meant to loose you Sam
No one will ever know.
Always remembered and sadly missed by your loving wife Leitha

In loving memory of Dorothy J. BLOIS who passed away August 14th, It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
On the day God called you home.
Your resting place we now visit
And place flowers there with care
But no one knows the heart ache
When we turn and leave you there.
No matter how we spend our day
No matter what we do
Before we close our eyes at night
We always think of you.
You are always in our thoughts, love Stephen and Rebecca BLOIS, Judy and Larry JEFFERY, Carol and Steve EVANS and Kenneth MacDONALD.

MacDONALD, Anne
A dear wife, mom and grandma, who passed away one year ago today, September 21, 2004. God saw you getting tired When a cure was not to be So he closed his arms around you And whispered "Come to me". A golden heart stopped beating Your gentle hands at rest God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. In tears we saw you sinking We watched you fade away Our hearts were truly broken You fought so hard to stay. But when we saw you sleeping Peacefully and free from pain We could not wish you back To suffer that again. So keep your arms around her Lord, And give her special care Make up for all she suffered That seemed to us unfair. So many times we've needed you So, many times we've cried If love could have saved you You never would have died. Dearly loved and forever in our hearts by your husband Rick (Whitey), children Ricki-Leigh (Paul), Tyler and grandchild Mackenzie.

MacDONALD, Norienne (née RANAHAN)
(February 24, 1915-September 20, 2005)
The old legs, have gotten weary and I felt it was time to join Mac. After all, it's been 3 years since he left my side after 60 years together. John and I were blessed with 3 wonderful children and their families, Mary and Dennis (STARKEY,) in Durham, John and Debra (recently deceased), in Goderich and Rick and Barbara (BIGGAR) in Tecumseh. I was privileged to watch my grandchildren, Brianne, Kyle and Sean grow into young adults. We moved from London to Saint Thomas where we lived for close to 55 years and the majority of those years were in our home we built in Lynhurst. My life was a fulfilling one, raising our 3 children and embarking on a teaching career when they were older, teaching at Holy Angels Elementary School and at St. Joseph's High School. Being elected as a trustee for the Elgin County Roman Catholic Separate School Board and being the only woman on the Board was quite an experience. Three years ago, I moved to Windsor, a sudden move with little time for goodbyes. So it was quite a treat to return to Saint Thomas to celebrate my 90th birthday with all my old Friends in February. Thanks to the "pot luck" group who kept in touch and a special thanks to my close friend, Norma ROCHE, who sent me weekly notes keeping me up on the news in Saint Thomas. Mom was very active in the community over the years with a long standing involvement in the Cancer Society, (serving two terms as president of the Elgin County Unit), the Saint Thomas Golf and Country Club both as a golfer (serving a term as President of the Ladies Division) and as a Bridge Club member. She was a committed volunteer for the Rotary Music Festival for decades, and served a term as President of the local chapter of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. One of Mom's favourite activities was the bike ride for cancer, which she did into her 80's. For her commitment to the community, she received the "Saint Thomas Citizen of the year award" with Dad, an unexpected but well deserved honour. She was an amazing mother and we will miss her terribly. Thanks to those care workers at Sunrise Assisted Living who went beyond the call of duty and a special thanks to the staff at Extendicare Tecumseh and Dr. Ian McLEOD, who took such terrific care of mom and allowed her to keep her dignity as her health failed over the past 9 months. The family will receive their Friends at the R.E. Allen Funeral Chapel, 31 Elgin Street, Saint Thomas, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Friday afternoon and evening. Funeral service will be held at Holy Angels Church, 502 Talbot Street, Saint Thomas, Saturday morning at 10 a.m. After cremation, interment will be made in St. Peter's Cemetery, London. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Ontario Heart Foundation would be appreciated by the family.

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.

Body found downtown
By Amy LAZAR, Thursday, October 13, 2005
Yellow tape secured a downtown corner for more than 14 hours yesterday after a 38-year-old Stratford man was found dead on the concrete outside the OLCO gas bar.
A cab driver from A&A Taxi noticed a man lying unconscious at the gas station around 3 a.m., said Henry MacDONALD, a night dispatcher for the company.
MacDONALD phoned the Ontario Provincial Police.
Police arrived on the scene and found a man with no vital signs. Police said the man was transported to Soldiers' Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Calling the death suspicious, police released few details about the incident.
The Packet has learned the dead man is Liam BROADMORE, 38, of Stratford.
BROADMORE was heading home after spending Thanksgiving weekend at a family cottage near head Lake, about 30 kilometres east of Washago, a source told The Packet.
Yesterday, police roped off the corner of Peter and Colborne streets before dawn.
Around 9 a.m., the yellow police tape that ran across Peter Street at Mississaga Street was moved closer to the Colborne Street intersection.
A few businesses on Peter Street remained closed for the day. The RBC Financial Group was open but the drive-thru was blocked off.
The OLCO gas station has been closed for business since Tuesday at 10 p.m.
“It's a tragedy for everyone in town,” said the owner of the gas bar, Arfan AHMAD, from his home yesterday.
He found out about the investigation from his employee, who showed up to open the station at 6 a.m.
“I was shocked to hear that she couldn't open the store,” said AHMAD.
After receiving that phone call, he went to see for himself.
A black Ford Explorer with purple and white markings on the side, believed to be the victim's vehicle, was parked on the gas bar property.
Police marked a pool of blood and a red and black jacket, which were on the ground, close to the car's front bumper, as evidence.
There were 17 evidence markers at the blocked-off corner.
Eight Ontario Provincial Police officers surrounded the perimeter, reminding people to stay back from the scene and redirecting traffic.

MacDONALD, Finlay Michael
59, died Thursday morning, December 30, while playing tennis in Halifax.
Born in Sydney, August 2, 1945, he was the son of the late Senator Finlay MacDONALD and Ann (MacKENZIE) MacDONALD. He was educated at St. Francis and Saint Mary's University High School, St. Francis Xavier University and Dalhousie Law School. Finlay spent his professional life in broadcasting and politics.
Finlay began his broadcasting career at CJCH Radio in Halifax and then, while still in law school he moved on to television, creating the current affairs program ID which was the predecessor to ATV's top-rated Live at 5. After anchoring and reporting at CJOH-TV in Ottawa, Finlay became CTV's first national correspondent for Atlantic Canada. Finlay rose to the pinnacle of his profession when he was posted as a national reporter for CTV News on Parliament Hill. His marquee accomplishments included being the first Canadian journalist to ever interview Cuban President Fidel Castro in Finlay was an entrepreneur and an innovator. He built a pioneering television network, The Star Channel, which revolutionized the pay television industry in Canada. In recognition of his accomplishments, he was appointed to a Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission National Royal Commission. He later used his expertise to become one of the nation's leading regulatory and licensing consultants in the broadcasting industry.
Never one to seek the spotlight, Finlay offered counsel to countless successful business, political and professional leaders. A life-long lover of politics and a committed Progressive Conservative, Finlay was among the first to recognize the potential of Nova Scotia Premier John Hamm, and served as a trusted advisor from the premier's earliest days in politics.
Fin was a consummate gentleman whose compassion and style were legendary, as were his infectious laugh and his ability to live every moment to the fullest. Finlay loved tennis. He loved winters in Long Boat Key, Florida and summers in Chester. His idea of a perfect day was two sets of tennis in the morning, "tubing" with his nieces and nephew, two more sets of tennis in the afternoon and then some quiet time on the wharf with Maggie and the family dogs, Jack and Eddy.
He is survived by his beloved Maggie; sister Mary (Kevin) RYAN, Halifax; brother Ian (Sandra), all of Halifax. He is also survived by his nieces and nephew, Emmett and Katherine RYAN, and Sonja and Dana MacDONALD, all of Halifax.

Alma Louise TOLL
By Victoria TOLL, Tuesday, January 18, 2005 - Page A20
Fighter, survivor, nurturer, supporter. Born April 9, 1917, in Ottawa. Died January 4 in Ottawa of natural causes, aged 87.
Tea, bingo and Johnny Carson ended up being among my grandmother's favourite things.
She was born on the first day of the First World War's Battle of Vimy Ridge. Alma's parents were immigrants: Her father, Otto SCHINZEL, was German, her mother, his second wife, Letitia MacDONALD, was a pretty English rose. Letitia had arrived at Halifax expecting her brother to meet her, but when he did not, she made her way to Ottawa on her own. This strong spirit was passed on to her daughter.
Alma had a happy childhood and was the blonde beauty of the family, doted on by her father. He would take her on the streetcar from Eastview to Britannia Beach. There were family outings to the Governor-General's residence.
When Alma was 10 years old, her father died. In 1927, Alma was sent to live with a wealthy family who had a disabled son. She was to serve as the son's companion, and was unable to continue in school. When she was 16, this unhappy time of her life ended, and she swept out the door, back to her mother's.
One day, the man who delivered bread to her home asked her brother for Alma's name and phone number. For 10 cents, a princely sum, brother Alfred agreed.
Alma married Ernest TOLL, of East Templeton, Quebec, and bore him six children: Wayne, Sandra, Glenn, Garfield, Grant and Terrence. A small home on a large plot of land in Nepean, Ontario, served as a TOLL homestead and hockey rink for two generations. They had their share of difficulties, including Ernest's service in the Second World War. Upon his return, Ernest was quite ill and lived in a Montreal veteran's home. Alma never remarried after his death.
Alma raised her children and, through her babysitting jobs, helped to raise many others. She loved children and it was returned by many of them, some of whom visited her when they were much older.
She was the most beautiful woman in the world to her family. Naturally beautiful, reed thin, she was extremely elegant, smoking her extra-long cigarettes. She was not especially interested in food, although she liked a good steak and a garden-grown beefsteak tomato. Her diet pre-dated the Atkins craze by 50 years.
She would often sing her grandchildren an old German Christmas carol her father had sung to her, O du frohliche. When they were older, they would beg her to sing it. Often she would say angrily "I won't!" but ultimately, she was persuaded, her sharp tone a gruff front for her creampuff centre.
Alma was an inveterate tea drinker, a legacy of her English mother. She would drink it after her bingo game, and watch The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Tea, bingo and Johnny were among her great loves.
In her later years, Alma lived with her elder sister Hilda in Gloucester, Ontario
When Hilda passed on, Alma moved in with her sons Terry and Grant, who cared for her in the last five years of her life. While she could not play bingo, to the end she would give Terry numbers for Lotto 6/49.
In her final days at a nursing home, a brunette nurse was deemed similar to her granddaughter Michelle -- a great compliment. Another nurse said that each morning, they would find Alma undressed in bed. When the nurse asked her why she was out of her pyjamas, Alma explained that she was helping the nurses get her dressed. She thereby maintained some independence.
Alma died peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her son Terry, and her grandchildren, who told her how much she was loved.
Victoria TOLL is Alma's granddaughter.

Peter WIDDRINGTON, Executive and Chief Executive Officer: 1930-2005
As the head of Labatt, he was a 'father of baseball in Canada' who established the Blue Jays in Toronto and later came close to becoming president of the American League. For a time, he was even commissioner of baseball
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, February 18, 2005 - Page S7
Peter WIDDRINGTON once mused that he could well be the only beer salesman with an M.B.A. from Harvard. The long-time executive and former chairman of the Toronto Blue Jays took his Ivy League degree to John Labatt Ltd., where he started out in sales and held senior positions along the way before becoming head of the company in 1973. He held that position until 1989.
When talks started more than 30 years ago about bringing major league baseball to Toronto, Mr. WIDDRINGTON was at the front and centre. He helped put together a team that would eventually make it happen. The day came on March 26, 1976, when the American League voted to expand to Toronto, awarding a franchise to a group made up of Labatt, Imperial Trust Ltd. and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Three months later, a franchise fee of $7-million (U.S.) was agreed upon. Early on, the owners decided that the franchise was to be run on sound business principles, where the baseball people were allowed to act freely within certain parameters, but were to report back to the board.
"He was definitely one of the fathers of baseball in Canada," said Paul GODFREY, the president of the Blue Jays. "Without the corporate leadership of Labatt's, there would have been no baseball in Toronto."
Mr. WIDDRINGTON's interest wasn't focused just on the bottom line: He was also a big sports fan. He truly loved the game of baseball and was lucky enough to have been chairman of the Blue Jays during the glory years leading up to, and including, the 1992 and 1993 World Series, when the team beat Atlanta and Philadelphia respectively. He watched as the Blue Jays became the first team to capture back-to-back World Series titles since the 1977-1978 Yankees.
Even last year, long after he had left the team's corporate management, Mr. WIDDRINGTON would still make the two-hour trip to Toronto from his home in London, Ontario, to watch a game with Mr. GODFREY. Or, if he wasn't with the president, then he'd be down in the stands taking in a game. "He was one of the big fans," Mr. GODFREY said.
Born in Toronto, Peter Nigel Tinling WIDDRINGTON was the son of Margery MacDONALD and Gerard WIDDRINGTON. His father, who emigrated from England, was assistant headmaster at Pickering College, a private school in Newmarket, Ontario, midway between downtown Toronto and Barrie. The young Mr. WIDDRINGTON attended Pickering College, where he played football and hockey. After high school, he studied economics at Queen's University and then went on to Harvard Business School. Later, he received an honorary doctorate from the University of Western Ontario.
One of his early successes as president of Labatt was to have the bright idea of producing a Canadian version of Budweiser, with the result that the beer grabbed a 7 per cent market share in the opening weeks of the 1991 summer season -- a stunning figure by industry standards. Two weeks later, Labatt launched "Bud" in Quebec and sold out its entire inventory in a day.
In addition to his role as president and chief executive officer, Mr. WIDDRINGTON served as chairman from 1987 until 1991, when Interbrew of Belgium took over the beer company and the Blue Jays. During his time at Labatt, he also played a key part in the creation of TSN, Canada's first all-sports network.
In 1993, Mr. WIDDRINGTON temporarily occupied the office of commissioner of major-league baseball after Fay VINCENT was forced out by the owners, and deputy Steven GREENBERG left of his own accord.
"There was no senior person in baseball in the commissioner's office and, at the time, there were 170 people working there, so I was there on somewhat of a part-time basis for an average of two to three days a week from January through until December," Mr. WIDDRINGTON said.
Then, for a few years in the mid-1990s, he was also the chairman of Major League Properties until interim baseball commissioner Bud Selig decided Mr. WIDDRINGTON should go because he was no longer affiliated with baseball.
"I miss baseball, and I miss the Jays, but I had to recognize that when Interbrew bought Labatt's, they were going to make some changes, as they are entitled to do," Mr. WIDDRINGTON later told a reporter. "I personally was disappointed but, structurally and objectively, I understood."
Mr. WIDDRINGTON's power-packed résumé shows he was also chairman of Laidlaw Inc., a director of Brick Brewing Company, Radiology Corporation of America Inc., Gatekeeper Business Solutions Inc., and Pickering College. In a 1994 interview with The Globe and Mail, he admitted that he wasn't the type to retire and head south to golf every day or lie on a beach.
"Really, I'm a professional manager, I guess you could say," is the way Mr. WIDDRINGTON described himself at the time.
How did he find the time for everything at an age when he could have easily been slowing down his life? "I do the best I can in juggling time and responsibilities," he said in 1994. "It depends on my other schedules. I can't drop everything and devote all my time to baseball. Am I retired? I suppose I'm retired from Labatt's, but certainly I'm not retired in the sense of playing golf or going down south, but I don't have a 9-to-5 job."
That same year, he was in the running to become president of the American League. While he never seriously saw himself as a contender for the commissioner's job, the American League job had its attractions. After all, his beloved Jays were an American League club.
"I was approached [to apply] in both cases," he told The Globe and Mail. "I've been interviewed twice for the American League post. I would be interested in the job. I think they'll be making up their minds fairly shortly. I think I would enjoy it very much, but I'm just taking it a day at a time."
In the end, it came to nothing and instead, he found himself involved in operating a series of companies.
In 1997, he landed in the middle of a bitter corporate conflict of the kind long remembered by the business community. A succession feud erupted within the family that owned Cuddy International Corp., then Canada's largest poultry processor with about $500-million in annual sales, a staff of 3,000 people worldwide and a juicy contract to supply McDonald's with McNuggets. The London, Ontario, company had been rife with plots and counterplots that pitted the founder against one or more of his five sons, and between 1992 and 1996 had gone through several chief executive officers. At the time, Peter WIDDRINGTON was the fifth or sixth Chief Executive Officer.
Not surprisingly, the situation was not to anyone's liking and Mr. WIDDRINGTON made his exit. Most recently, he was chairman of Brick Brewing of Waterloo, Ontario
Until the end, Mr. WIDDRINGTON had one foot in the business world and one foot in the sports world. Earlier this month, he had joined Tom VALCKE, president of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, in New York, where they met with Charles Bronfman to ask him to sponsor the hall's expansion and planned academy in St. Marys, Ontario Mr. WIDDRINGTON was chair of the hall's fundraising campaign, which is currently aiming to raise $5.3-million. Mr. VALCKE was more than impressed with Mr. WIDDRINGTON's skill in the boardroom on February 2. "Based on that meeting, we will be having another meeting with [Mr.] Bronfman."
Afterward, Mr. WIDDRINGTON remarked that it was one of the best presentations he had ever been a part of. Despite the high note, he didn't have time to celebrate or even to join his colleagues for dinner. He bid them farewell and immediately headed back to the airport. Just over a week later, after an exhilarating day of skiing in Aspen, Colorado., he suffered a heart attack.
"He was living life in the fast lane," Mr. Valcke said.
Peter WIDDRINGTON was born in Toronto on June 2, 1930. He died in Aspen, Colorado., on February 11, 2005. He was 74. He is survived by his wife, Betty Ann, daughters Cindy and Stacy, brother Michael and three grandchildren. A funeral service is set for today at St. Paul's Cathedral in London.

BUTCHERD, Stanley H. (April 14, 1924-April 26, 2005)
Passed away suddenly at Welland General Hospital at the age of 81. Stan leaves behind his loving wife, best friend and life-long travel companion, Dorothy (née DEARING,) many close Friends and colleagues.
After serving as a Flying Officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Stan graduated from the University of Toronto School of Architecture in 1950. A Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, and past president of the Ontario Association of Architects (1969), Stan practised architecture for over 54 years - an achievement that was recognized by the Ontario Association of Architects in 2004. Stan's career began in Toronto in the offices of noted architect John LANGE, before forming a private practice with Bob CALVERT. In 1957, he moved to Port Colborne to establish his own company. He was a founding president of the Niagara Chapter of the Ontario Association of Architects, founding member of the Port Colborne L.A.C.A.C., and was responsible for the design of many civic buildings throughout the Niagara region.
Throughout his life, Stan was an inspiration and mentor to many younger architects. Nowhere was this more evident than when he formed a partnership toward the end of his career with Robert MacKENZIE. Their firm subsequently joined Quartek, a multi- discipline design and engineering company, where Stan continued to practise until finally being allowed to retire at age 80.
With Dorothy, he shared a love of travel, music, and art that endeared them to Friends of all ages. In the glint of his eyes, one discovered his sense of humour and quiet intelligence. His profound commitment to citizenry led Stan to become a President of the Port Colborne Lion's Club, a member of the Police/ Citizen's Advisory Committee, and an active member of the community's First Lutheran Church.
Predeceased by his parents, Nellie and Harry (of Eastbourne, England), he will be greatly missed by his wife, Dorothy, and their Godchildren, Don RHYNAS (Jane MacDONALD) of London, Ann SMALE of Kitchener (Wayne MOORE), Jane SMALE (Anthony VANLEEUWEN), and Peter SMALE (Nancy BENITZ) of Toronto.
Friends will be received at the Port Colborne Chapel of the Davidson Funeral Homes 135 Clarence St. on Thursday and Friday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 30 at 2: 00 pm at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 688 Elm Street, Port Colborne, followed by burial at St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery and a reception. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please make donations to Doctors without Borders, 2200 Yonge Street, Toronto, or to the Welland Humane Society.

MORRISON, Sister Domitilla, S.O.S.
Sister Domitilla MORRISON, Sister of Service, died peacefully at Providence Healthcare, Scarborough, on May 23, 2005 in her 76th year of religious life. Born in Sydney, Nova Scotia on September 4, 1909, she was one of 7 children born to Joseph MORRISON and Mary MacKINNON. She was predeceased by her brothers, Jonathan Allen (Elizabeth), John James, Ronald Hugh and her sisters Sarah Ann MORRISON, Mary (Angus) MacDONALD and Mary Agnes (Hugh) MacNEIL. Entering the Sisters of Service in 1929, the Community, then seven years in existence, she was one of the pioneers who shaped and influenced its policies, values and traditions. Early assignments in the Immigration Ministry in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Toronto, Ontario, teaching in rural public schools in Manitoba and Catechetics in Saskatchewan prepared her for a unique assignment - a request to set up and administer a Religious Education Program in the diocese of Fargo, North Dakota, designed on the S.O.S. model. As Formation Director for the Community from 1945-1954, she influenced, challenged and prepared a generation of Sisters of Service who continue to look on her as a friend and mentor. On her retirement from active missions, she studied Library Science at the University of Manitoba. For the next twenty years as as Archivist and Librarian, she documented and catalogued the history and library resources of the Community and laid the foundation for the present archival holdings of the Sisters of Service. With her passing, the S.O.S. have lost a community icon, a wisdom figure, a reservoir of community history and dedicated servant of the Lord. She leaves to mourn in her passing her S.O.S. Friends across the country. Visitation will be held Wednesday, May 25, from 7 p.m. at La Salle Manor, 61 Fairfax Cr., Scarborough, Ontario (416-755-7818). Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated Thursday May 25 at 10: 30 a.m. in La Salle Manor chapel. Interment in Mt. Hope Cemetery.

Louise will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by Patrick, her husband of 49 years; her children Sydney, Don, Michael, Lesley, Frances, Tricia, Paula, Jocelyn, and Christine and their partners her adoring grandchildren, Katie, Lauren, William, Louise, and Ruthven (who loved nothing better than being with their 'Bupa') brother John MacDONALD, brothers and sisters-in-law Tom and Kay FORAN and Frank and Patricia FORAN, sister-in-law Terry MacDONALD as well as many close Friends and relatives. Predeceased by her parents Don and Ruth MacDONALD and her brother Cameron. Louise led a full and meaningful life, guided by her strong faith, positive attitude, wonderful sense of humour and love of family and Friends. She enjoyed adventures with Pat, travel, close relationships with people of all ages, great conversations, shopping with Katie, and 'all things bright and beautiful' including art, literature, music, good movies, and writing. Her generous spirit found expression in a variety of personal and social causes, often eloquently revealed in her 'letters to the editor.' Louise epitomized the spirit of the multi-tasker and always gave the impression she had all the time in the world to share her time and energy. She devoted herself to the well being of others, social justice, and ser vice to family, church, and community. Although Louise had nine children of her own, there was always room for more at her table...always soup on the stove, chocolate chip cookies in the oven and tea for everyone. A gifted listener with an abundance of patience, compassion, and understanding, Louise was the center of our family - the light of our lives. In the past few years, Louise faced illness with characteristic courage, grace, and dignity. We will love and miss her forever and always. Prayers and visitation at St. Augustine's Catholic Church, 2028 W. 7th Ave., Vancouver at 8: 00 p.m. on Thursday, June 2. Funeral Mass at St. Augustine's on Friday, June 3 at 12: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, Louise would appreciate acts of kindness to those in need and donations to St. Augustine's School Fund or the C.W.L.

Bill LAFORGE, Hockey Coach: 1951-2005
He was a coach with good intentions, but his 'goon hockey' Ontario Hockey League methods were not suited to the National Hockey League. He lasted only 20 games behind the Vancouver bench
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, June 25, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- If you played for Bill LAFORGE, you loved him. If you were an opposing player or coach, you hated him. If you were a league commissioner or president, you would wince at his methods to win games.
His legacy is mayhem hockey. More often than not in any game in which he was involved, the gloves came off and the penalty minutes soared. It was a successful tactic that won games in the Canadian major junior ranks. The bad-boy coach extraordinaire of his era, Bill LAFORGE and his boys were fabled for physical play, brawling and instilling fear in the opposition. It was called goon hockey.
Yet, his coaching also produced explosive offensive talent. Among his proteges were such future National Hockey League players as Keith Primeau, Mark Habscheid, Gary Leeman, Garth Butcher, Brad May, Tony Tanti, Rob Brown, Lyndon Byers, Shayne Corson, Ken Daneyko and Doug Bodger -- not to mention Barry Trotz, who has been head coach of the National Hockey League's Nashville Predators since their inception.
Mr. LAFORGE's success at the junior level led to a failed experiment as head coach of the National Hockey League's Vancouver Canucks. That, however, is not his legacy.
"His legacy is his success in junior hockey and how he loved his players and how his players loved him back," said Garth Butcher.
As a teenager growing up in Edmonton, Bill LAFORGE was like a lot of youngsters and enjoyed playing all sports. What made him different was that he excelled at hockey and football -- with a decided preference for the latter. As a bruising fullback, he starred for both Archbishop MacDonald High School and the Edmonton Huskies of the Prairie Junior Football League. He dreamed of suiting up in the Canadian Football League. In 1974, he seemed set to join the Calgary Stampeders. But he failed a physical at training camp.
"Bill had gotten hurt not long before while working on a construction site when he was hit in the head with a piece of concrete," said his cousin, Pat LAFORGE, the president of the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers. "That's why he didn't pass the physical."
His playing career over before it had really begun, Mr. LAFORGE plunged, instead, into coaching recreational hockey in Edmonton and at nearby Enoch, a Cree reserve where he was sports director. He must have been doing something right because a few years later, Sherry BASSIN, general manager of the Ontario Hockey League's Oshawa Generals, came calling. Mr. BASSIN had been searching for someone to replace Paul THERIAULT as coach for the 1980-81 season and knew something about a junior coach from Alberta who possessed winning ways. He returned home to Ontario and announced he had hired a no-name coach, something unheard of in the junior hockey world. Thus began Mr. LAFORGE's tumultuous career behind the bench.
"It was great perception on Sherry's part to see something in Bill," said Stew MacDONALD, who at the time was working for the Generals as an intern and as assistant to Mr. BASSIN.
"I had never heard of Bill until he sent us a letter with a resumé that wasn't that fancy," Mr. BASSIN said. "The resumé was half blotted out. So I met him in Vancouver when I was on business. His team had won a junior C championship somewhere in Alberta and I found him to be extremely enthusiastic."
All things considered, with an unknown calling the shots, no one expected the Generals to make the playoffs. To everyone's surprise, they did -- largely because of Mr. LAFORGE's tough-guy tactics. As the regular season wore on, his aggressive strategy earned a number of short suspensions for him and his players. But nothing compared to what happened one night in March of 1981 during the first round of the playoffs against the Peterborough Petes. It was in that series, one game specifically, that the LAFORGE legend began to take shape. In the pre-game warm-up, a shoving match developed on centre ice between Oshawa and Peterborough players. Dave DRYDEN, the Petes coach, tried to restore order. Mr. LAFORGE shot out of his office to investigate and discovered his opposite number among the players.
"Keep your hands off my players," he bellowed at Mr. DRYDEN. Within seconds, the two men were poking at each other's chest and screeching back and forth like two roosters at a cockfight. Not surprisingly, their behaviour did nothing to cool the players' tempers. Mr. LAFORGE was later reported to have had an altercation with Peterborough player Doug EVANS; but, as Mr. MacDONALD tells the story, the two coaches never actually traded blows.

Gus BODNAR, Athlete, Coach And Salesman 1923-2005
In 1943, the handsome and 'dimpled darling' of the Maple Leafs was the quickest, slickest thing on skates when he set an National Hockey League record for the fastest goal scored by a rookie
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, July 9, 2005, Page S9
Vancouver -- On October 30, 1943, Ontario Premier George DREW stepped to centre ice at Maple Leaf Gardens to drop the puck for a ceremonial face-off. The Toronto Maple Leafs had several rookies in the lineup to start the season, as wartime enlistments thinned the ranks. Among those skating into the breach was a handsome 20-year-old centre-man named Gus BODNAR.
Fifteen seconds from the start of the game, Mr. BODNAR pounced on a loose puck in front of the New York Rangers net. He slipped the disk into the net past goalie Ken McAuley. Just like that, the young forward had etched his name in the National Hockey League record book. Nearly 62 years later, the goal still stands as the quickest scored by a player making his debut.
Mr. BODNAR added another goal and an assist in leading the Leafs to a 5-2 win in the season opener, a performance that made him an instant fan favourite in Toronto.
Mr. BODNAR was a wiry centre with a reputation as a savvy playmaker. As a 5-foot-11, 150-pound rookie, he seemed a tad fragile to survive professional hockey's take-no-prisoners combat. Indeed, he would suffer a lengthy list of wounds and ailments in his career. He exited many games on his back courtesy of stretcher bearers and more than once did so while unconscious. Yet, he always seemed to be back on the ice within a week or two.
Sportswriters praised the skills of the "dynamic midget" who was described as a "resourceful young puckster" and "one of the slickest skaters ever."
The "dimpled darling" of "cherubic countenance" received poetry and mash notes from female admirers in those years when so many men were serving overseas. Mr. BODNAR, who had been rejected for army service for heart palpitations, was said to inflict that condition on his bobby-soxer fans. One piece of doggerel that made the newspapers read: "We want Gussy, good or bad/ He's the cutest number you've ever had."
What his erstwhile suitors did not know was that he was carrying a torch for a high-school sweetheart back home in Fort William (now Thunder Bay).
August BODNARCHUK starred with the junior team in his Ontario hometown, his obvious skills catching the attention of Leafs scout Squib WALKER. In his final season of junior hockey, the centre scored 10 goals and 29 assists in just nine games with the Fort William Hurricane-Rangers in 1942-43.
The brash youngster arrived at his first Leafs training camp convinced he would soon be an National Hockey League star.
"I thought I was pretty big stuff," he later told Frank ORR of the Toronto Star. "I had my hair long and all slickered down with goo. I figured I was about the hottest rookie ever to hit the pros, even though I weighed only 145 pounds."
The rookie got a quick and unforgettable lesson in the realities of the National Hockey League when veteran, 205-pound defenceman Bucko McDonald hit him with a stiff bodycheck during a scrimmage.
"I crashed to the ice and figured every bone in my body was broken. The only reason my hair was still attached to my head was because of all the goo I had on it."
He learned to skate with his head up, alert to incoming threats.
The three-point debut was a harbinger of a stellar rookie campaign spent on the Leafs first line between veterans Bob Davidson and Lorne Carr. Mr. BODNAR's talents earned him the Calder Trophy as the National Hockey League's outstanding rookie. Montreal Canadiens goalie Bill Durnan was runner-up, while Leafs rookies Elwin Morris and Teeder Kennedy tied for third. The trophy was announced on the final day of the season. Mr. BODNAR then scored two goals and three assists in a 10-2 shelling of the Boston Bruins.
Mr. BODNAR ended his first season with 20 goals and 42 assists to set a new league mark for scoring by a rookie. The record would stand for a quarter century until beaten by Danny Grant of the Minnesota North Stars in 1968-69. Mr. BODNAR's 62-point season was the Leafs club standard for rookies until bettered by Peter Ihnacak in 1982-83.
While Mr. BODNAR scored just eight goals in his sophomore season, his three playoff goals were all game winners. The Leafs outlasted the Detroit Red Wings in seven games to claim the Stanley Cup in 1945. Mr. BODNAR would also get his name on the Cup with the Leafs in 1947.
In his years with the Leafs, he centred Mr. Carr and Sweeney Schriner to form the Bacon Line, so called because the trio "brought home the bacon." He later combined with Bud Poile and Gaye Stewart to form the Flying Forts. All three players hailed from Fort William and all were part of a blockbuster, seven-player deal with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1947.
The seasons in Chicago were highlighted by a magnificent feat coming in the third period of the final game of the 1951-52 season. Chicago's Bill Mosienko scored three goals in 21 seconds against the Rangers on March 23, 1952. Mr. BODNAR assisted on all three. The record for the three fastest goals -- coming at 6: 09, 6:20 and 6: 30 -- still stands, as does the record for three fastest assists.
"I never left centre ice," Mr. BODNAR once told Paul Patton of the Globe. "I just won the face-offs and [Mosienko] did the rest."
Mr. BODNAR was later traded to Boston, where he ended his National Hockey League career after the 1954-55 season. He had scored 142 goals with 254 assists in 667 games. Along the way, he had also gone and married that hometown sweetheart, Etta MacDONALD. They were wed in Toronto in 1948 at a ceremony which included such Leaf greats as Teeder Kennedy, Syl Apps, Turk Broda, Don and Nick Metz, and Wally Stanowski, who was best man.
The player's popularity was such that a newspaper photographer was dispatched to Wellesley Hospital in Toronto to capture Mr. BODNAR and his bride posing with their first-born child, a daughter named Bonny Lynn, in 1949. He had rushed to the hospital on a Saturday night after playing the Leafs. He then caught a train for Chicago.
A house painter in the off season during his early hockey career, Mr. BODNAR had a long career as a salesman for a steel company. He also coached the Toronto Marlboros from 1965 to 1970, winning the Memorial Cup in Centennial Year with a roster including future National Hockey League defencemen Mike Pelyk, Brian Glennie and an 18-year-old Brad Park, who would become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Mr. BODNAR's patience and willingness to adapt to his young players' needs made him an ideal junior coach. He was not a screamer, unlike so many of his peers.
He left the Marlies just before the opening of training camp in 1970, when offered the general manager and coaching posts for the Salt Lake City (Utah) Golden Eagles of the Western Hockey League. His first job as a pro coach ended after a season, as the Buffalo Sabres farm team finished with a woeful record of 18 wins, 49 losses, 5 ties.
Mr. BODNAR headed the Oshawa Generals when named Ontario Hockey League coach of the year in 1972.
He also was one of three coaches to handle Canada's junior team in 1977-78, which won a disappointing bronze medal at the World Cup. The roster included Mike Gartner, Rick Vaive and a 16-year-old Wayne Gretzky.
In recent years, Mr. BODNAR often took part in charity golf tournaments. He has been inducted into sports halls of fame at Oshawa and Northwestern Ontario at Thunder Bay.
Gus BODNAR was born on April 24, 1923, at Fort William (now Thunder Bay), Ontario He died on Canada Day in Oshawa, Ontario He was 82. He is survived by his wife, Etta. He also leaves a son and four daughters.

son charged in death of mother
By Joe FRIESEN, Friday, July 29, 2005, Page A12
A man has been charged with manslaughter after his mother died in what police describe as a shocking case of abuse and neglect.
Mary NOSEWORTHY, 78, was found dead two weeks ago by her 54-year-old son, Donald, at the home they shared in Scarborough. There were obvious signs of abuse on her body, Detective Joel KULMATYCKI said.
"There were bruises on her body as a result of assaults," he said yesterday. "She hadn't bathed in, I would hazard a guess, a number of weeks.... Her bedroom and the area where she lived in that house weren't fit for anyone to live in."
Det. KULMATYCKI said it was the accused who asked for police to be called in.
An autopsy showed that Ms. NOSEWORTHY died of congestive heart failure.
"The primary cause of death was heart failure, and the secondary cause of death, which contributed directly to the primary, was elder abuse and neglect," Det. KULMATYCKI said. "She wasn't properly cared for.
He added that Mr. NOSEWORTHY told police his mother suffered from dementia, although she hadn't seen a doctor.
"It's almost like child abuse where the baby is crying and the parent gets so frustrated that they strike out," he said.
Rod MacDONALD, who lives next door to the NOSEWORTHY home on Westcroft Drive, said he hadn't seen Ms. NOSEWORTHY for the two months before she died. Normally she liked to walk to the local store every day to buy groceries, he said, but his wife had noticed her condition deteriorating over the winter.
Mr. MacDONALD said it was difficult to talk to his elderly neighbour. She was almost completely deaf, he said, and would often repeat stories.
"You kind of didn't like to walk away from her, but then she'd come up and start repeating these stories, things from way back in the past," Mr. MacDONALD said.
"Her husband was an elevator installer and he used to go all over Canada, and she used to talk about being alone a lot of the time and bringing up Donald.
"She'd talk about bringing Donald along on trips to Newfoundland or British Columbia to see his father because he'd been away for four or five weeks installing elevators. And the next week she'd have the same story again."
Mr. MacDONALD said Mr. NOSEWORTHY took his mother to see her husband's grave in Pickering every Sunday, but otherwise wasn't around much.
He, too, worked in the elevator business, starting his day at 5: 30 a.m. and staying out late.
Unlike his father, however, Mr. NOSEWORTHY made no effort to cut the lawn or clear the driveway, the neighbour said. Even though he owned a snow blower, he allowed his mother to shovel the driveway all winter.
Mr. MacDONALD said he could tell that Ms. NOSEWORTHY was sometimes afraid of her son, and recalled an incident two years ago when she locked herself out of the house and walked next door for help.
"She was saying Donald's going to be mad," he said.

GALLIE, Alan Edward
Alan Edward GALLIE (known to everyone as 'Doc') was born Feb 13, 1915 in Toronto, Ontario and died peacefully on August 6, 2005. Doc will be best remembered for his remarkable interest in everything and everyone around him, and his extraordinary ability to make Friends. Doc, a born engineer and natural outdoorsman, worked for Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. for 42 years in numerous mining camps throughout Northern Ontario and Manitoba. In 1939 he married his high school sweetheart Mary MITCHELL and took her to northern Manitoba where they spent their first winter in a tent at 40 below, to the horror of their parents and delight of themselves. As mine manager at Lynn Lake, Manitoba, Doc orchestrated the move of an entire town - buildings, people, dogs and all - 147 miles over a winter road from Sherridon to a new mine site at Lynn Lake. He never hesitated to get his hands dirty or to see things done right. Later, Doc became Vice President of Sales and travelled around the world selling Sherritt's nickel. When he retired, he and Mary lived full-time at the 'Saltbox' near Claremont, Ontario just outside Toronto. His passions were fly-fishing at Glenmajor, bird-watching and gardening. He energetically cared for future generations, with a deep involvement in the Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation scholarship program for engineering students, the Daisy Fund for children seeking treatment for retinoblastoma, and the pursuit of justice, honesty and common sense. Throughout it all, Doc built innumerable Friendships, born of a wonderful confidence, deep interest in and respect for others. Doc lived at his beloved Saltbox until the last day of his life. He died in his daughter Brenda's house in Toronto, surrounded by his family, enquiring after the interesting details of their lives until the end. Doc, son of William Edward GALLIE and Janet Louise (HART) GALLIE, is predeceased by his wife Mary Frances (MITCHELL,) and survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD (Gary GILLIES), Brenda GALLIE (Michael JEWETT), and Ann GALLIE (Dougal McCREATH;) by his grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD, and Frances and Gordon JEWETT; and by his nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY, Jane GALLIE, Louise GALLIE and Ian GALLIE.

Alan (Doc) GALLIE, Northern Adventurer 1915-2005
Mining engineer made history by moving an entire town across 245 kilometres of frozen muskeg in northern Manitoba
By Michael VALPY, Wednesday, August 10, 2005, Page S6
Alan Edward (Doc) GALLIE was a Canadian mining engineer of pioneer legend, a dashing adventurer of the North, a passionate outdoorsman and an engaging charmer in his youth who could roller-skate his way into the hearts of beautiful young women.
He made history by moving an entire town over 245 kilometres of frozen muskeg in northern Manitoba. He revelled in working beside men named Half-Ear Andy, Rubbernose Ragolski, Bonehead Joe and Alphabet Smith.
He snow-shoed through a valley at night pursued by wolves ("The fastest I ever snow-shoed," he later told his daughters), walked away more than once from plane crashes in the wilderness and on one occasion trekked alone into the bush to bring out a deranged, homicidal prospector.
In the latter part of his 42-year career with Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. -- now Sherritt International -- he was vice-president of marketing, travelling the world to sell Canadian nickel.
Doc GALLIE was a tall, fit man -- 6-foot-4 -- with enormous self-confidence who made Friends wherever he went. He had a sunny view of life. His maxim was that he wanted the world to be nice. He was a doer, a builder who hated merely watching things happen.
Throughout his professional life, he was engaged in programs awarding bursaries and scholarships to Canadian engineering students and finding jobs for them at home when they graduated so that they would not leave the country. He did not like old people, his family said of him. He wanted to be around the young.
Mr. GALLIE acquired the nickname of Doc as a student at Upper Canada College when one of the masters asked him if he was the son of Toronto's internationally renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. William GALLIE. Young Alan GALLIE said yes, and he was known as Doc ever after.
While he was still at Upper Canada College, his mother arranged a date for him for a school dance with the daughter of one of her Friends. Doc GALLIE roller-skated over to the girl's house, knocked on the door, was admitted into the front hall and, as he later said, down the stairs to meet him came the most beautiful creature he'd ever seen -- Mary MITCHELL.
Doc GALLIE decided to become a mining engineer after hearing tales of the Northern Ontario mining town of Cobalt told over lunch one day by a medical colleague of his father's who practised in the community.
As a student at University of Toronto, one of his engineering professors, H.E.T. HAULTAIN, asked the young man to be his assistant on a trip to Africa in 1936. Prof. HAULTAIN lectured him each morning on the 21-day ocean crossing so that he wouldn't fall behind in his studies, then took him to some of the continent's great mines.
In Bulawayo, Rhodesia -- now Zimbabwe -- he took time off to go roller-skating in a local rink, collided with a pretty girl, knocked her down, helped her up and dated her.
Back home, after graduating with honours in 1938, he started work with Sherritt in northern Manitoba and shortly thereafter telephoned Mary MITCHELL in Toronto to ask if she would be ready to marry him in two weeks. Mary said yes, while her mother, overhearing the conversation, said no.
They married in the chapel of Bishop Strachan School and she became his life's closest companion, fellow adventurer and equally passionate aficionado of the outdoors.
After a honeymoon in New York and holiday celebrations at home for Christmas, Mary accompanied her new husband into the bush where their first home was a mine-office tent shared with the company geologists with the new Mrs. GALLIE assigned the job of camp radio operator.
That first winter of their marriage, the temperature dropped more than once to 40 below. "When our Samoyed dog climbed into bed with us at 3 in the morning, I knew it was time to put more wood in the stove," Mr. GALLIE later wrote.
From Manitoba, Mr. GALLIE was sent in 1941 to manage an iron mine at Josephine, near Wawa, Ontario The mine was under a lake and, in 1946, the lake bed unexpectedly let go and flooded the mine. Mr. GALLIE wrote his engineering master's thesis on why it happened.
In 1947 -- now with two young daughters, Joan and Brenda -- he was reassigned to northern Manitoba, and five years later supervised the unprecedented feat of closing down an exhausted mine, in Sherridon, and moving the equipment and the entire town site 245 kilometres north over winter roads to a new ore body at Lynn Lake (where a third daughter, Ann, was born).
Mr. GALLIE was made assistant to the president of Sherritt Gordon in 1958, a job he said neither he nor the president felt had any purpose.
At that time, "no one [in the company] was really doing anything about selling the product," Mr. GALLIE noted. All the company's contracts were with U.S. steel companies and the U.S. government, and they were coming to an end.
So Mr. GALLIE basically invented a job for himself as vice-president of sales and spent the next two decades selling the company's output around the world.
At home in Canada, Alan and Mary GALLIE indulged in their hearts' passions of canoeing, bird watching, fishing and the garden of the 150-year-old Cape Cod saltbox home they bought at Claremont, northeast of Toronto. When Mrs. GALLIE died in 1998, Mr. GALLIE sold their Toronto home and moved permanently to "The Saltbox," close to the Glenmajor fishing camp he belonged to and loved.
He lived an active life at The Saltbox until a few days before his death.
He was 90 when he died, surrounded by family members in the home of his daughter, oncologist Dr. Brenda GALLIE. He'd had a martini a few hours earlier, made jokes and chatted with his family about what they were doing. He said he was looking forward to death as his next adventure.
Alan Edward (Doc) GALLIE was born on February 13, 1915, in Toronto. He died of lung cancer on August 6 in Toronto following a short illness. He was 90. He is survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD and Brenda and Ann GALLIE, grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD and Frances and Gordon JEWETT, and nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY and Jane, Louise and Ian GALLIE. Funeral service is 2 p.m. today at Grace Church-on-the-Hill, Toronto.

James JEROME, Politician and Judge: (1933-2005)
He was king of the hill as Speaker of the House of Commons but less successful as a federal judge. Appointed in a blip of election-day patronage, he encountered unaccustomed criticism
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, August 31, 2005, Page S9
James JEROME was a popular Speaker of the House of Commons who seemingly could do no wrong until he became a federal judge.
Mr. JEROME was the first Speaker chosen from an opposition party, he introduced television coverage of the Commons and he wielded a fair but firm hand during Question Period. Then, in an unusual spasm of election-day patronage, he was made associate chief justice of the Federal Court of Canada, where he came under unfamiliar attack. He stepped down in March of 1998 after his slow handling of war-crimes cases.
James JEROME spent his early years in Kingston, Ontario, where his father was a construction engineer. Later, the family moved to Toronto, where James went to high school, the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall Law School.
After law school, Mr. JEROME moved to Sudbury, Ontario His first step into politics was winning a seat on city council. He then ran for the Liberals in a by-election in May of 1967 and lost but won in the 1968 general election, the year of Trudeaumania. He was re-elected in 1972, 1974 and 1979. Though the Liberals lost that election, he retained his seat with a majority of 12,000 votes.
Along the way, he had taught himself French to advance his political career and it probably helped land what some call the best job in the House of Commons. The post of Speaker comes with a staff of 3,000 and includes a rent-free, country estate called Kingsmere and a social life as glittering as that of the Governor-General.
The Commons first elected Mr. JEROME the Speaker in September of 1974 after the Liberals had won a majority government. Yet it wasn't a unanimous vote for the new Speaker. In an interesting footnote, Robert STANFIELD, leader of the opposition, refused to second his nomination.
Mr. JEROME remained in power through the long Trudeau Parliament. His most lasting change to the House of Commons was bringing in television coverage in 1978, which he said led to "a far higher quality of journalism in reporting the proceedings of the Commons." His ground rules for broadcasters were eventually copied by other parliaments, including the British House of Commons.
As Speaker, he managed to steer clear of problems. He was involved in only a few major battles while ruling as arbiter of taste and as master of debates in the Commons. He did, however, get into a fierce war of words with The Globe and Mail when the Speaker sided with a 1976 vote by the parliamentary press gallery to bar Canadian Press managers who were working as reporters during a strike. Parliamentarians said The Globe had committed a "gross libel" against the Speaker. The newspaper's view, as expressed in two editorials, was that the Speaker shouldn't be allowed to decide who can or cannot sit in the press gallery.
In October of 1979, during the short-lived Tory government of Joe CLARK, Mr. JEROME refused to recognize Warren ALLMAND after the former Liberal cabinet minister showed up in the House wearing a turtleneck sweater under a tweed jacket. Mr. ALLMAND wasn't happy, but before he get to his feet to complain, he first had to rush out and borrow a tie.
"Men in this House should have the same freedom of dress as women," Mr. ALLMAND eventually responded, pointing out that cabinet minister Flora McDONALD was not wearing a tie. The Speaker was not moved and cries of "Wear a dress, Warren," arose from the government side.
Mr. JEROME's election as Speaker during a Conservative government had been a minor triumph. In June of 1979, the Tories won a minority government and, in a surprise move, prime minister Joe CLARK allowed Mr. JEROME to remain in the Speaker's chair.
It was the first time in Commons history that a Speaker had been chosen from an Opposition party, a testament to the high esteem in which Mr. JEROME was held on all sides of the House and a recognition by the Tories of the benefits of reducing potential Opposition votes by one in a minority situation.
As it turned out, the arrangement did not last. The Clark government was defeated in a no-confidence vote that December.
A general election was called for February 18, 1980, and Mr. JEROME chose not to run. Instead, as Canadians went to the polls, Mr. CLARK named him associate chief justice of the Federal Court of Canada. Since the Conservatives were, in theory, still in power, they likely made the appointment at the request of the Liberals. It was a most unusual development, as outgoing prime ministers seldom make appointments on election day. In this case, it seemed all parties had agreed to making a judicial appointment for the sake of the retiring Speaker.
His new job, however, was not so cozy. As a judge, he soon found his decisions open to criticism. His biggest troubles arose during his last years as a Federal Court judge. Two incidents exposed the question of whether former senior politicians and government officials should be named to the bench.
In 1996, the chief justice of the Federal Court, Julius ISAAC, had a dinner meeting with a senior official of the department of justice who complained that Mr. Justice James JEROME was taking too long in the deportation hearings against three alleged Nazi war criminals.
The chief justice then intervened privately with Judge JEROME. Later, the Supreme Court ruled that Judge JEROME and another judge could not have any further connections with the case. Around the same time, Judge JEROME became involved in another controversy, related in part to the war-crimes case.
In making a comment about a case involving an aboriginal band, Judge JEROME was reported to have said he would never put a native judge on a native case and would never put a Jewish judge on a war-crimes case. This remark caused outrage from Jewish and aboriginal leaders, and a rebuke by the then-justice minister, Anne McLELLAN.
Both incidents led to a reform of how judges were named by the federal cabinet. For a time, at least 10 judges in the federal court's trial and appeal divisions had been former federal members of Parliament or government employees -- including Judge ISAAC, who was a former employee of the Department of Justice.
The appointments had been made by the Liberals during their long run in power from the 1960s to the early 1980s. On his last full day as prime minister in 1984, Pierre TRUDEAU appointed two cabinet members to the court. Two weeks later, his successor John TURNER appointed another former cabinet minister. The practice had made the court the object of criticism over its independence from the government.
In 1998, changes were finally made to the way judges are named.
"Now, it would appear to be impossible to name a cabinet minister as a judge," said Ian BUSHNELL, a retired law professor from the University of Windsor who wrote the history of both the Supreme Court and the Federal Court. "He [Mr. JEROME] was caught up in the patronage binge of the Trudeau/Turner era. No one who was appointed was a dud or a failure. As a judge, Mr. JEROME was certainly adequate."
Even so, it was as Speaker that he had shone. After his retirement from the Commons, Mr. JEROME wrote a memoir titled Mr. Speaker. In a review of the book, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter Larry ZOLF recalled Mr. JEROME's years in the House: "Few parliamentarians have ever been as popular with members of Parliament, reporters or constituents as the Toronto Irish Liberal member from the mining constituency of Sudbury.... JEROME's sensibilities are certainly missed in the carnival atmosphere into which the House, alas, has lately degenerated."
In his private life, Mr. JEROME was very much the family man. After he moved to the Speaker's house north of Ottawa, he bought a family cottage on Ramsey Lake near Sudbury. Mr. JEROME was an accomplished piano player and loved card games, especially bridge and gin. He was a keen golfer and he and his family skied at Camp Fortune near Ottawa.
James Alexander JEROME was born on March 4, 1933. He died in Ottawa on August 21 of Huntington's disease. He is survived by his wife Barry Karen and his children, Mary-Lou, Paul, Jim and Megan. Another son, Joseph, died in an accident in 1986.

Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER, Sergeant-At-Arms (1935-2005)
The House of Commons' longest-serving sergeant-at-arms presented the image of a man one would not wisely cross. He ran Parliament Hill as a 'private fiefdom'
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, September 3, 2005, Page S7
Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER paraded daily into the House of Commons with a military bearing befitting a retired major-general. As sergeant-at-arms, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER handled responsibilities ranging from security to the allotment of parking slots. His duties that gave him much control over the day-to-day lives of members of Parliament, a power exercised out of public sight.
More conspicuous was Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's role in leading the parades that open and close a day's sitting. In preceding the Speaker on entering and leaving the House, the sergeant-at-arms carries the ceremonial mace, a symbol of authority.
Dressed in a black court coat and a tricorne hat, the mace gripped by his right hand as it rested on his right shoulder, a ceremonial sword carried at his left hip, with service ribbons on his breast adding a dash of colour, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER presented the image of a man one would not wisely cross. For all that, his long tenure as sergeant-at-arms coincided with a breakdown in traditional parliamentary behaviour. On two occasions, members grabbed the mace, a shocking breach of decorum considered a gross contempt of Parliament.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was the longest-serving sergeant-at-arms since Confederation. His 27-year tenure surpassed that of the other seven men to have held the position.
A long climb through the ranks of the armed forces prepared him well for doing battle with civilians, as Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER proved a wily adversary in bureaucratic squabbles.
Born in Drummondville, Quebec, Maurice Gaston CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was educated at Mount Allison University at Sackville, New Brunswick, and, later, at the University of Liege in Belgium. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1952 while still a teenager, and married Joan CAHILL of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, before he was 20.
Serving as a navigator with Maritime Air Command, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER became an air instructor at the Air Navigation School at Winnipeg in 1960. He was appointed resident staff officer at Laval University at Quebec City two years later.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER relocated to Europe in 1964, serving as protocol chief for the armed forces. He was also appointed executive assistant to the commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force air division. After graduating from the Canadian Forces staff college in 1969, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was named bilingual policy adviser to the personnel chief. He was promoted to the rank of major-general in 1975.
He became executive assistant to Liberal defence minister Donald MacDONALD in 1970, remaining in the post under Edgar BENSON, C.M. (Bud) DRURY, James RICHARDSON and Barnett (Barney) DANSON.
The retired general was appointed sergeant-at-arms on April 27, 1978, by Pierre TRUDEAU, the first of seven prime ministers for whose security on Parliament Hill he was responsible. Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER succeeded David CURRIE, a decorated war hero awarded the Victoria Cross who had been sergeant-at-arms for 18 years.
As the official Commons guard, the sergeant-at-arms places the mace on a table before the Speaker. He then sits patiently throughout proceedings adjacent to the entrance to the House. The role of sergeant-at-arms carries with it a centuries-old responsibility for security, hence the mace and sword.
Yet, one of Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's first public statements regarded the diminished size of the Christmas tree installed in the lobby of the House. Several controversies generated headlines in his first years. A stern report from the auditor-general was highly critical of Parliament's administration, noting an annual $3.5-million deficit from restaurants and cafeterias.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was soon embroiled in a public squabble over spending with Speaker Jeanne SAUVÉ. Without her knowledge, he had ordered $10,000 of riot gear, including vests, helmets, handcuffs and 12-gauge shotguns. He had also neglected to inform her of the creation of a new restaurant to address overcrowding in Parliament's main dining room. Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER opened an elegant, 70-seat restaurant for senior bureaucrats in the South Block in 1980. The first-class restaurant served $2.75 gourmet meals, a bargain for top mandarins as each meal served cost $12 in subsidies.
The Speaker called the restaurant scandalous, ordered it closed (after having allowed it at first to remain open), and issued a public rebuke of the sergeant-at-arms' spending habits.
An attempt soon after to end wasteful spending left Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER with egg on his face. A special Commons-Senate committee decided laying off 30 cafeteria workers would save money. But members of Parliament and bureaucrats proved sadly incapable of tidying up after themselves, and the federal health department sent a letter of reprimand to the sergeant-at-arms insisting the unhygienic practice not continue.
Over the years, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER has also had to sweep offices for bugging devices, and ordered walls rebuilt to prevent eavesdropping among rival caucuses and research staffs.
Two incidents in 2002 raised questions about security in the wake of the previous year's attacks on New York and Washington. A protester crashed the official unveiling of former prime minister Brian Mulroney's portrait. Two weeks later, a man left a grenade at the front desk of the Langevin Block, across the street from Parliament Hill and outside of the sergeant-at-arms' jurisdiction.
At the adjournment of the House on October 30, 1991, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER shouldered the mace when rushed by an member of Parliament. Angered by a ruling by the deputy speaker, New Democrat Ian WADDELL tried to grab the mace from the sergeant-at-arms.
An apologetic Mr. WADDELL was called to stand at the bar of the House the next afternoon, where he was reprimanded for a breach of privilege and gross contempt of the House.
In 2002, member of Parliament Keith MARTIN, then with the Canadian Alliance, touched the mace in protest the loss off his private member's bill on marijuana decriminalization. He was censured by the House.
In 2002, all five parties in the House paid tribute to Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER for his 50 years of public service. (By coincidence, the honour came 11 years to the day after the WADDELL incident.) The unanimity among the speakers led Progressive Conservative leader Joe CLARK to quip: "Mr. Speaker, it is a good thing there are only five parties in the House or these tributes could cause an outbreak of order."
Earlier that month, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER co-ordinated the royal visit to Canada as the Canadian Secretary to the Queen. He became the longest-serving sergeant-at-arms since Confederation last year, surpassing the 26-year tenure of Henry Robert SMITH (1892-1917.)
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER took his responsibilities most seriously. In December, 1995, a Liberal member of Parliament in a Santa Claus costume and accompanied by an elf arrived on the floor of the House to spread bonhomie. Hansard reporters captured the interruption in typically understated fashion, inserting a note in the account of daily proceedings. It read: "Editor's note: Whereupon a visitor in red entered the Chamber."
The sergeant-at-arms, perhaps not fully appreciating the spirit of the season, gave the bum's rush to Santa, ushering Stan DROMISKY off the floor.
Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was born on June 6, 1935, at Drummondville, Quebec He died of colon cancer on Tuesday at the Elizabeth Bruyere Health Centre at Ottawa. He was 70. He is survived by his partner, Mary-Lynn GALLANT. He also leaves son Michael, and daughter, Nancy, as well as their mother, Joan, from whom he was separated.

Fred KELLY, Artist and Realtor (1921-2005)
He drew the original Mr. Monster, a wartime superhero drafted by comic-book publishers during trade restrictions
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail; Globe and Mail archives, Saturday, September 24, 2005, Page S9
Victoria -- Fred KELLY was an artist from Canada's brief golden age of superhero comics. He created the original Mr. Monster and then vanished until tracked down last year by a diligent fan.
Mr. KELLY drew for Bell Features of Toronto during the Second World War, as government restrictions on American periodicals gave birth to a homegrown comic-book industry. In place of Superman, Batman, Torch, The Shield and countless others, Canadian artists churned out scores of characters. Among Mr. KELLY's creations was Dr. Jim (Doc) Stearne, a medical doctor and crack marksman who hunted monsters. Mr. Monster, as his alter ego was known, appeared in the third issue of "Super Duper Comics." Mr. Monster wore black boots and white gauntlets, a helmet with goggles, and a red body stocking with a white skull on the chest. He was armed with a pistol and boasted no special powers other than his wits.
According to Library and Archives Canada, Bell comics varied in quality but were identifiably Canadian. Mr. KELLY joined a stable of such Canadian artists as Adrian Pringle, who produced the heroes Nelvana of The Northern Lights and the Penguin, and illustrator Edmund Legault, who drew Dixon of the Mounted. Also part of the Bell lineup was Phantom Rider by Jerry Lazare and the character Rex Baxter, drawn by Edmond Good. Best known, however, was Johnny Canuck. Drawn by Leo BACHLE, who died in 2003 and also went by the name of Rex BARKER, " Johnny Canuck -- Canada's answer to Nazi oppression" had no powers other than an inexhaustible source of courage and a killer right-hook.
Bell Features was not alone in stepping into the regulatory gap. Such other publishers as Vancouver's Maple Leaf Publishing and Anglo-American Publishing of Toronto also offered their own fighters of crime and fascism, including such homegrown heroes and heroines as Freelance, Black Wing and Commander Steel, to name a few.
Interestingly, Mr. KELLY also chose to work for a less dashing line of characters offered by Educational Projects of Montreal. Published as Canadian Heroes, the series featured profiles of prime ministers and other worthies, and was surely more popular among parents and teachers than the children on whom they were foisted. Among the real-life figures given the comic treatment was First World War air ace Raymond COLLISHAW, hockey star Howie MORENZ, and Sir John A. MacDONALD. Canadian Heroes did offer one clean-cut fictional hero, a stalwart named Canada Jack who combined healthy outdoor activities with crime-busting and spy-fighting.
Among the other characters he created for Bell were Betty Burd, a shapely roving reporter who found every opportunity to wear a revealing swimsuit; Cinder Smith, the manager of a train station in the Rockies; Steve Storm, a monocle-wearing British commissioner in colonial Africa; and race car driver Clip Curtis, The King of the Dirt Track.
After the war, Mr. KELLY and Mr. Monster returned to obscurity, as Canadian publications became overwhelmed by American imports, but not before trying his luck in the United States. In 1946, he worked with Damon Runyan and produced a comic strip that featured characters from the writer's popular stories about the gamblers, petty thieves, actors and gangsters of New York's Prohibition period. To be titled The Other Half, it was on the cusp of acceptance by a major publisher when Mr. Runyon died and the project collapsed.
After that, Mr. KELLY returned home and attended the University of Toronto to study medical illustration. He graduated in 1949, found steady work as an illustrator and then took up a successful career selling real estate in the Toronto area, most notably in the Willowdale area where he was a partner in Kelly and Craig Realtors.
The Mr. Monster character was revived in 1984 by Michael T. Gilbert, an American illustrator who had purchased a coverless copy of the original in 1971. The rejuvenated hero was presented as the son of Doc Stearne.
Just last year, Toronto comics historian Robert PINCOMBE tracked down Mr. KELLY, who had retired and divided his time between Mexico and Owen Sound, Ontario Mr. KELLY, who taught art classes in his retirement, attended the Toronto Comicon 2004 convention in June, where he appeared on a panel with contemporaries Ed Furness and Jerry Lazare. He also got to meet Mr. Gilbert.
"He was gratified, but thought the whole thing was all a bit silly," said Mr. PINCOMBE. "He felt it was great to be remembered and was pleased to learn that Mr. Monster had come back but didn't want a piece of it. He was a very pragmatic man."
Frederick George KELLY was born in Toronto on September 8, 1921. He died in Owen Sound, Ontario, on September 14 as the result of a stroke suffered in 2003. He was 84. He leaves his wife, Rita, a son; two daughters, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Marion McDONALD
By Rod McDONALD, Wednesday, November 16, 2005, Page A22
Wife, mother, great-grandmother. Born July 11, 1922, in Lochiel, Ontario Died June 16 in Alexandria, Ontario, of kidney failure, aged 82.
Marion was proud of her penmanship even though she never graduated from high school. Because she lived on a farm on the Sixth Concession of Kenyon Township in Glengarry County, just north of Alexandria, Ontario, and there were no buses, she had to board in town. Within weeks, she got homesick for the old homestead, and decided to go back to the country, where she could spoil her pet pig and rooster, and ride the mare bareback.
About five years after that time, when my father Hugh McDONALD was 45 years old, he walked out of the bush and away from his job tending the cattle in a lumber camp in the Ottawa Valley, and guided his horse and buggy for "The Sixth," as the locals called the Sixth Concession, the Scottish settlement where he was born. There, in Gaelic, he asked my grandfather, Rory MacCULLOCH, for his daughter Marion's hand in marriage. Rory answered, "Och yes, Hughie, if she agrees." Only 20 years old, Marion then dedicated the rest of her life to her father's most trusted friend.
Marion and Hughie moved from The Sixth to Alexandria. They never owned a car. They did not go on trips. Their main focus was on their seven children, and all else was secondary. They were deeply religious, and St. Finnan's Cathedral became their second home.
Marion was a "people person." It used to take her an hour to go to the post office, which was just down the street, because she would stop and talk to everybody. She would shake hands with her powerful grip, which she had developed from milking the cows by hand when she was a little girl, and ask a litany of questions before she let a person go. That was her time away from the house, and she made the most of it.
She was also a woman of high spirits, even though she did not drink. Every Saturday morning, she would listen to a radio show called Scots on Parade and she would dance to the jigs and reels as she did her chores. When I was learning to play the fiddle, and could barely scratch out a tune, I would look up and there she was dancing around the kitchen.
Marion was no stranger to hardship. Her sister Sadie was hit by a car and killed instantly on a busy street in Montreal and her brother Vincent drowned in a boating accident while he was working as a forest ranger in northern Ontario. Two of her children died in infancy. I was the eldest child and got to see first-hand the stuff my mother was made of at an early age.
When I was five years old, I lost my sister to a viral infection. The wake was held in the front room, a place reserved for visits from the priest, Gaelic conversations between my father and his cousin Alec, and reciting the beads during Lent.
My sister's coffin was not much larger than a fiddle case, and it was propped gingerly on two pressed back chairs. From my perch on the stairs, I watched my mother, and listened to the soft hum of the prayers being incanted over and over again by the ladies of the Catholic Women's League.
My mother's face was drawn and gaunt, but she kept her pleasant smile throughout the ordeal. She maintained her vigil until all the mourners had passed through, and then she knelt on the hardwood floor and prayed alone, with her head down. When she came out of the room, she waved at me as I crouched on the stairs, as if she had been away on a long journey.
That was the day I got to know my real mother, but it was only after she died that I got to know the meaning of the old saying that the mother's heart is a child's real schoolroom.
Rod is Marion's son.

HARMAN, " Effie" Mae
Peacefully, at home in Toronto, on Wednesday, February 23, 2005. Born in the parlour at Lot 71, Con. 1, King Township in May 1920 to Jennie (MacDONALD) and Arwood HARMAN, Mae was the beloved younger sister of the late Leonard HARMAN. She attended Temperanceville Public School and Aurora High School, and participated in many youth rural reform efforts of the 1930s. In 1942 she left home for Victoria College at the University of Toronto. Upon graduating in 1946 she began her social work career at the Young Women's Christian Association at Winnipeg. In 1950 she returned to University of Toronto to earn a M.S.W., and after some years as a Branch Director with the Toronto Young Women's Christian Association, she took a position running junior and teen programs at the University Settlement. She remembered these years as "the happiest and most productive years of [her] professional life". Mae served as Executive Director of the Ontario Association of Professional Social Workers from 1967-1973, and in 1973, she was appointed to the School of Social Work at the University of Windsor. Upon her retirement in 1985, Mae returned to Toronto, where she bought a house that she filled with mementos of her many travels and Friends. She took great pleasure in her neighbours and her cats, and she embarked on a second career as a volunteer advocate for social justice. As a member and then President of Canadian Pensioners Concerned, Ontario Division, and in connection with many other organizations and committees, she spoke out with passion and intelligence on many health and social policy issues. She received numerous awards for her volunteer service and advocacy efforts, including the Arbor Award from University of Toronto and the Dan Benedict Award from the Ontario Coalition of Senior Citizens' Organizations. Mae is admired and fondly remembered by her niece Joan (HARMAN) MURRAY and husband Timothy MURRAY, and her great-nephew Peter Harman MURRAY. Her great-niece Laura MURRAY, with Sergio SISMONDO and their children Joseph and Clara Mae, will also cherish Mae's combination of toughness and sweetness. The family wishes to thank Dr. Rashida HAQ and the staff of the Medical Day Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital, together with Mae's warm caregivers from Senior Peoples' Resources in North Toronto and Toronto Community Care Access Centre and the wonderful neighbours and Friends whose visits, phone calls, and soup sustained her in her final illness. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, March 20th, at 2 p.m., at the Victoria College Chapel, University of Toronto, 91 Charles Street West. Reception to follow in the Alumni Hall.

MORRISON, Sister Domitilla, S.O.S.
Sister Domitilla MORRISON, Sister of Service, died peacefully at Providence Healthcare, Scarborough, on May 23, 2005 in her 76th year of religious life. Born in Sydney, Nova Scotia on September 4, 1909, she was one of 7 children born to Joseph MORRISON and Mary MacKINNON. She is predeceased by her brothers, Jonathan Allen (Elizabeth), John James, Ronald Hugh and her sisters Sarah Ann MORRISON, Mary (Angus) MacDONALD and Mary Agnes (Hugh) MacNEIL. Entering the Sisters of Service in 1929, the Community, then seven years in existence, she was one of the pioneers who shaped and influenced its policies, values and traditions. Early assignments in the Immigration Ministry in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Toronto, Ontario, teaching in rural public schools in Manitoba and Catechetics in Saskatchewan prepared her for a unique assignment - a request to set up and administer a Religious Education Program in the diocese of Fargo, North Dakota, modeled on the S.O.S. design. As Formation Director for the Community from 1945-1954, she influenced, challenged and prepared a generation of Sisters of Service who continue to look on her as a friend and mentor. On her retirement from active missions, she studied Library Science at the University of Manitoba. For the next twenty years as Archivist and Librarian, she documented and catalogued the history and library resources of the Community and laid the foundation for the present archival holdings of the Sisters of Service. With her passing, the S.O.S. have lost a community icon, a wisdom figure, a reservoir of community history and dedicated servant of the Lord. She leaves to mourn in her passing her S.O.S. Friends across the country. Visitation will be held Wednesday, May 25, from 7 p.m. at La Salle Manor, 61 Fairfax Cres., Scarborough, Ontario (416-755-7818). Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated Thursday, May 26 at 10: 30 a.m. in La Salle Manor chapel. Interment in Mt. Hope Cemetery.

GALLIE, Alan Edward
Alan Edward GALLIE (known to everyone as 'Doc') was born February 13, 1915 in Toronto, Ontario and died peacefully on August 6, 2005. Doc will be best remembered for his remarkable interest in everything and everyone around him, and his extraordinary ability to make Friends. Doc, a born engineer and natural outdoorsman, worked for Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. for 42 years in numerous mining camps throughout Northern Ontario and Manitoba. In 1939 he married his high school sweetheart Mary MITCHELL and took her to northern Manitoba where they spent their first winter in a tent at 40 below, to the horror of their parents and delight of themselves. As mine manager at Lynn Lake, Manitoba, Doc orchestrated the move of an entire town - buildings, people, dogs and all - 147 miles over a winter road from Sherridon to a new mine site at Lynn Lake. He never hesitated to get his hands dirty or to see things done right. Later, Doc became Vice-President of Sales and travelled around the world selling Sherritt's nickel. When he retired, he and Mary lived full-time at the 'Saltbox' near Claremont, Ontario just outside Toronto. His passions were fly-fishing at Glenmajor, bird-watching and gardening. He energetically cared for future generations, with a deep involvement in the Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation scholarship program for engineering students, the Daisy Fund for children seeking treatment for retinoblastoma, and the pursuit of justice, honesty and common sense. Throughout it all, Doc built innumerable Friendships, born of a wonderful confidence, deep interest in and respect for others. Doc lived at his beloved Saltbox until the last day of his life. He died in his daughter Brenda's house in Toronto, surrounded by his family, enquiring after the interesting details of their lives until the end. Doc, son of William Edward GALLIE and Janet Louise (HART) GALLIE, is predeceased by his wife Mary Frances (MITCHELL,) and survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD (Gary GILLIES), Brenda GALLIE (Michael JEWETT), and Ann GALLIE (Dougal McCREATH;) by his grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD, and Frances and Gordon JEWETT; and by his nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY, Jane GALLIE, Louise GALLIE and Ian GALLIE. The Funeral service will be held at Grace Church on-the-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Rd. (at Russell Hill Rd.), Toronto, on Wednesday, August 10, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund through the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation, 555 University Ave., Toronto, Ontario, M5G 1X8 1-800-651-5825 or www.sickkids.org/Foundation/ and specify 'The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund' under 'Additional Comments'.
