VAISEY- GENSER, Florence Marion (née BERRYHILL)
Marion passed away at the Riverview Health Centre on October 22, 2005 after a struggle with lung cancer. She was predeceased by her husbands Edgar VAISEY in 1961 and Lawrence GENSER in 1997 and her son Jacques VAISEY in 2003. She is survived by: her sister Dorinne THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and her family; daughter Jill VAISEY and her husband Peter DICKOF and their children Carla and Raymond DICKOF daughter-in-law Tasha NATHANSON and her children Saskia, Ariana, and Bronwyn VAISEY; step-daughter Irene CORNE, her husband Bob and their children Lesley and Jeff WOLMAN, Janet and Michael KATZ, Maureen and Avi SLAMA, and Eric and Aimee CORNE, and their children (Marion's great-grandchildren) Yale and Serena WOLMAN, Ariel, Liav and Neeve SLAMA, and Ira CORNE; and by her step-son Steven GENSER. Marion was born to Florence and Dolph BERRYHILL in Winnipeg on April 3, 1929. She graduated with a B.Sc. from the University of Manitoba in Home Economics in 1949 and an M.Sc. in Nutrition from McGill University in 1951. She went on to teach in Halifax, Corvallis and Guelph before joining the University of Manitoba's Home Economics Faculty (now Human Ecology) in 1965 where she taught and did research using sensory methods to evaluate foods such as canola oil. She joined the administration of the University in 1980 as Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and served as the Associate Vice President, Research from 1983-91. She published many papers and received a number of awards throughout her career. After her retirement in 1993, she was honoured with Senior Scholar and Professor Emeritus status. Elegant and erudite, sharp witted and well spoken, successful professionally and charming personally, Marion was an inspiration. She worked gladly to further causes as diverse as women in the sciences and Canadian food products. She served on national science committees and even appeared on Korean television to promote flax seeds for her beloved prairie provinces. She loved her family, playing cards, and ending the day with a nice bowl of vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce or - joy! - raspberries from the garden. We will all miss her terribly. A memorial service will be held in Winnipeg at 1: 00 p.m. on Saturday, October 29th at Saint John's College Chapel, 92 Dysart Rd. A reception is to follow in the Cross Common Room.

Floyd NATTRASS, Trap Shooter And Salesman: 1918-2004
After competing at the Olympics without a coach, he learned a bitter lesson and became a gifted teacher of marksmanship
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, January 3, 2005 - Page S6
Victoria -- A keen eye for sniping game birds on the family ranch in Alberta led Floyd NATTRASS all the way to an Olympic shooting range. A spectacular collapse in the final rounds at the Tokyo Games in 1964, and his own disappointment with his performance, later made him a shooting coach of uncommon insight.
Mr. NATTRASS taught several generations of Alberta trap shooters, including up-and-comer Ty Bietz, who is regarded as a future Olympian. The student to have enjoyed the greatest success, however, has been his daughter, Susan NATTRASS, who in 1976 became the first woman to compete in trapshooting at the Olympics.
Mr. NATTRASS preached a commitment to the basics of the sport, such as how to weild a shotgun. "Bring it up to your face, not the shoulder," he once instructed a reporter from the Calgary Herald. "Don't muscle the gun. The left hand is like holding a fresh egg. The right hand is like holding a rattlesnake by the neck, so it doesn't bite you."
Born and raised in rural Alberta, Floyd Caldwell NATTRASS spent his early years on a ranch on which his father operated livery stables. As a boy, Floyd's daily duty was to shoot duck, pheasant or partridge for the family supper table. He also earned spending money by plugging such prairie nuisances as gophers and weasels at 50 cents each.
He hunted elk and other larger game as a young adult, although his reputation was as a scourge of coyotes, whose pelts he sold to build a nest egg for married life.
After joining the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Mr. NATTRASS was posted to New Brunswick as a constable. A Golden Gloves champion in his youth, he taught boxing to fellow Mounties until a bad back led to an early retirement.
Mr. NATTRASS became a fruit salesman who moonlighted as a hunting guide. On one such expedition, he struck up a Friendship with the president of an Edmonton clothing manufacturer, who hired the guide as a travelling salesman. For many years, Mr. NATTRASS sold the blue jeans and other durable work clothes made by the Great Western Garment Co., and became national sales manager.
It was during another hunting foray that a client suggested the dead-eye shot take up competitive shooting and Mr. NATTRASS soon won provincial and national titles. He represented Canada at the world championships three times.
In 1958, Mr. NATTRASS won the Sahara Gun Club's annual midwinter trap shoot in Las Vegas by hitting 98 of 100 targets before striking all 25 clay pigeons in a shoot-off against a Kansan and a Californian.
The 1964 Olympic trapshooting competition was held in the Tokyo suburb of Tokorozawa, where Mr. NATTRASS competed without a coach. After six of eight rounds, the Alberta shooter was tied for fourth place, trailing the leader by just three points and in contention for a medal. Then calamity struck. His timing slowed even as he perceived his trigger finger to be too eager and he finished ninth.
Later, the silver medalist from the Soviet Union and a sheik from the United Arab Republic told Mr. NATTRASS they had spotted the flaw in his technique, though they felt it improper to tell him during competition. The disappointed shooter made a lifetime commitment to provide coaching -- the lack of which he felt had cost him a medal.
While he grounded his daughter in the fundamentals of the sport, she found her father's intense presence at competitions to be a distraction. He was asked to stay away and, since 1969, her mother has been her coach. Her parents have long been separated.
At the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, Ms. NATTRASS became the first woman to compete against men at trapshooting. Her lobbying eventually led to women gaining their own shooting events.
Mr. NATTRASS continued to give shooting lessons until slowed by ill health earlier this year. He also tinkered with equipment to improve the sport, especially sights. According to the Herald, he owned a patent for a device he called the Super Sighter.
Floyd NATTRASS was born in Manyberries, Alberta., on January 2, 1918. He died at High River Hospital on December 7, 2004. He was 86.
