WALLNER, Joseph Peter " Joe"
Died peacefully, on March 2, 2005 at Wellington House Nursing Home in Prescott, Ontario, after several years of declining health, in his 88th year. Born April 11, 1917 in Hanover, Ontario, and a long-time resident of Ancaster and Burlington, Joe was known throughout his life as a fine gentleman who championed through his actions his belief in God, family, his country and the credit union movement. Active in credit unions from an early age, Joe joined the staff of CUNA Mutual in 1951 and travelled extensively in Canada, the U.S. and abroad to support the growth and development of credit unions, and insurance services for credit unions. In 1954-1955 he was president of CUNA (Hamilton) Credit Union. He established many lasting Friendships through his business travels, retiring as Senior Vice President, Corporate Relations, for CUMIS in 1982. He also was active in the Burlington Chamber of Commerce, serving as its president in 1976. In World War 2, Joe served first in the Merchant Marine and then more than three years in Ferry Command, delivering planes and equipment across the Atlantic. His patriotism was still evident years later when he organized a door-to-door campaign in Burlington to encourage families to proudly fly their country's flag on Canada Day. Dozens of families took part, including virtually everyone on Joe's street. Joe was a founding member of two Catholic parishes and was a founding director of St. Louis Parish Credit Union, which became Waterloo Regional Credit Union and where he retained membership for more than 50 years. He was a member of Saint John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Burlington for 37 years. The family express their deepest appreciation to Father John APPELMAN and the Pastoral Care Group at Saint Mark's Parish, Prescott, who supported Joe's faith in many kind ways in recent years. Joe's other great faith was in medical practitioners, from whom he received stellar care, particularly in his declining years. The family would especially like to thank the caring and compassionate staff at Wellington House, where he spent his last four years, as well as Dr. Maung Tun ZAW of Burlington and Dr. Gun BHATT of Prescott. Joe was the dear father of John WALLNER (Sheila) of Gatineau, Quebec, and Eloise COLEMAN (Tom) of Toronto and Brockville. He was predeceased by two loving wives: Audrey Mary BENINGER, (1981,) and Margaret WHITELEY, (1992.) He is survived by his sister Salome (Mrs. Dan DACEY) of Thunder Bay, and brother George WALLNER (Phyllis) of Guelph, and was predeceased by three siblings; Sister Mary SALOME, S.S.N.D.; Gertrude (Mrs. James DAVIDSON) of Kenora; and Flight-Sergeant John WALLNER of Hanover, who was shot down in action August 18, 1943, 15 months after serving as Joe and Audrey's best man. He was 23. Loving sisters and brothers-in-law include Rosemary TRAPLIN (Jack) of Kitchener, Elaine COUCH (Hank) of Calgary, Doris (Mrs. Tom) BENINGER of Orleans, Loretto (Mrs. Gerald) BENINGER of Belleville, Monique (Mrs. Len) BENINGER of Sorel, Quebec, Helen YEO (Kenneth) of St. Catharines, Irmgard (Mrs. Ralph) ROEDIGER of Hamilton and, deceased, Marguerite (Mrs. Lawrence) COLIGAN of Morrisburg, and Bernice MURPHY of Toronto. Joe was also very close to dozens of nieces and nephews. Visitation at the Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street (one block north of City Hall), Burlington (905-632-3333) Friday March 4th from 3 to 5, and 7 to 9 p.m. with Vigil Prayers at 8: 30 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial at Saint John's Church, Burlington (Brant Street at Blairholm) on Saturday, March 5, 2005 at 10: 00 a.m. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family would be grateful for expressions of sympathy through donations to School Sisters of Notre Dame Mission Fund, c/o Notre Dame Motherhouse 1921 Snake Road, Waterdown Ontario L0R 2H0.

MOFFATT- SCHAFFNER, Beverly Jean (CROCKER)
It is with great sadness that the family of Beverly Jean MOFFATT- SCHAFFNER (CROCKER) announces her death on February 15, 2005, in her 63rd year. Bev faced her short but difficult battle with Inflammatory Breast Cancer, the way she faced life - head on, with courage, determination and pride - never thinking about herself, but worrying about those around her. Bev always introduced herself as "an extreme introvert", yet she managed to touch the hearts of everyone she met. Bev leaves behind her life-partner of 11 1/2 years, Sami, with whom she loved to explore the back roads of Ontario, and spend weekends cross stitching and watching movies; her daughter, Christine, her husband Christopher BOAL, and their children Nicholas, Ashley-Rose, and Anthony, who were Grandma's pride and joy; and her daughter Susan, and her husband Marc DE LEON and "The Munchkin," due August 23rd. Also left to mourn Bev are her mother-in-law Dorothy MOFFATT; her chosen sister and brother-in-law Sue and Bob NITTOLY, and her best friend Lisa FAKHOURIE, both who cared so lovingly for Bev; her feline babies Sweetums, Treya, Molly, Merlin, Billy and LilSpooks; her spiritual family at St. Dunstan of Canterbury Anglican Church; and her former co-workers, family and Friends. She is predeceased by her parents, Jean and Alfred and her step-father Jack. The family would like to thank Drs. Akbar KHAN, Arnold TEPPERMAN, Michael CHAN and Dina ZAYID, for the wonderful and supportive care they gave Bev throughout her illness; her special nurse, Shawn, who visited daily and gently tended to her needs; the Palliative Care team from Scarborough Centenary Hospital; Fr. Richard NEWLAND whose visits were filled with spirituality and humour; and "The Prayer Team", who encompassed most the world and supported all of us through their prayers, cards, phone calls and emails. A celebration of Bev's life will be held at St. Dunstan of Canterbury Anglican Church (56 Lawson Road, Scarborough), on Saturday, February 19, 2005. Visitation and reception will begin at 7: 30 p.m., followed with the Funeral Service at 9: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to PALIN "The Weekend to End Breast Cancer"; or, 4 women 4 ever team, in Bev's name would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to the McEachnie Funeral Home, 905-428-8488.

Baruch "Ben" MINTZ
By Rena ZAYIT, Monday, October 31, 2005, Page A14
Father, husband, salesman, small business owner. Born February 24, 1915, in Toronto. Died May 13 of pneumonia after hip surgery, aged 90.
My father was a very dignified man. He epitomized old-fashioned characteristics of honesty, integrity and decency. The highest compliment that he could pay anyone was: "He was really a very decent chap."
For him, that said it all. I have been honoured to follow in my father's footsteps, for my father, too, was a very decent chap.
Born Baruch on February 24, 1915, in downtown Toronto, my father grew up the son of a clothing jobber in a large family. He left home at a young age and travelled across North America before ending up in Montreal. There, he met my mother, Marge TORONTOUR, and became the father of Raanan, my twin brother Arne and me.
My father believed in working hard. "Thorough" was his favourite word. Well before I learned that sinning was missing the mark, I learned from my father that not making the most thorough attempt was not working hard enough, and that was inexcusable.
Primarily, I remember my father working as a travelling salesman, carting heavy cases of samples in and out of his car. I never remembered my father complaining about his hard work. For him, the definition of being a decent chap was that you worked hard, looked after your family and did not impose on others.
I wished my father had been willing to impose on others and let us help him. Right until his 90th birthday, he was ruggedly independent and would not impose on anyone to ask for help. Nor would my father permit himself much. When we bought him new clothes, they would stay in his closet for years, still pristinely wrapped. My father, in his modesty, turned away compliments.
As a young man, he was a splendid artist, making incredible lifelike drawings using the most humble materials: a simple pencil and plain paper.
My father's great delight was his grandchildren. About the only time I ever saw him beam with pleasure was when he mentioned, or when anyone talked about, his grandchildren -- Tziona, Anne, Yonan and Corey -- and his precious great-grandchildren -- Ryan and Talya.
One of my favourite memories of my father is his reading bedtime stories to my twin brother and me. We would each sit on one side of him and we loved listening to him read The Fat Baron. He carefully articulated each word and took great pleasure in pausing dramatically.
There was another pleasure my father had: writing short stories. During a five-year period starting in 1995, he wrote and rewrote numerous stories. In many cases, there are three or four drafts of the outline plus hand-written drafts of the story, all written on the backs of flyers or carefully opened letters. Each draft is carefully edited with his red pen with suggestions for changes. In some cases, he carefully glued new words over the old.
His stories say so much about him. They are gentle and peopled with hard-working characters, whom my father describes as having the highest moral values. In one story, two Friends in their boat narrowly miss the dangers of the rapids and capsizing. As they bicycle away, leaving the boat and the water, one friend tells the other: "I got to hand it to you. You took everything in your stride. Not a word of complaint. While I fussed and complained you kept your cool during the worst of it."
The other friend looks at him in silence for a while.
"I was praying," he says simply.
Baruch means blessed in Hebrew. My father will be missed.
Rena is Ben's daughter.
