GORDON, Mrs. Mary Eva (née ADDYMAN)
Died at home on Friday, June 10, 2005. Heartwarming memories of Mary and recollections of some very funny times together will be carried in the hearts of her family as a reminder to live life with spirit and mirth.
Grateful to have been at her side, riding shotgun in her many adventures and escapades as a daughter, sister, mother, aunt, step-mother, wife and "nana" is her best friend and ally, confidante and husband, Merritt GORDON, whom she lovingly referred to as "Meg".
Thankful for how Mary enhanced and embellished their lives, adding bold colour and broad dimension, are daughters Jaye, Krista and Tere OUELLETTE and stepchildren Debbie Shelley and Robert.
No one loved to play or enjoyed a new toy more than Mary. To her six grandchildren, Mason, Merritt, Colleen, Meritt, Alaina and Keri, Mary was a "nana" who was fun, entertaining, "with it", "cool", exciting, doting and loving.
Mary's Creativity and free spirit could be witnessed in all she touched. Martha Stewart stole many of her best ideas! A diva in the kitchen and a fashion maven par excellence she was always on the cutting edge of "what's hot and what's not".
At Mary's request cremation services will be a private affair. However, should anyone be looking, she always said the south of France would be the place to find her when her time here was up.
Friends are invited to a reception in honour of Mary, which will take place on Wednesday, June 15, 2005 from 2-4 p.m. at the Best Western, Otonabee Inn, 84 Lansdowne Street East, Peterborough.
The family would like to express very warm thanks to the caregivers Dr. Mohindra and Dr. RAGAZ, Victorian Order of Nurses Nurses, the compassionate staff 3rd Floor St. Joe's and the Nightingale Homecare and Nursing Staff who made it possible for Mary to be at home with family. In lieu of flowers, donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
Arrangements entrusted to Peterborough Cremation Services, 593 Arndon Avenue, Peterborough K9J 4A9, (705) 740-0404.

DUNCAN, Alexander James (1929-2005)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alexander DUNCAN on Saturday, April 30th, 2005. Alex was predeceased by his devoted and loving life partner of nearly half a century James Richard SHAEFFER. Alex passed away due to complications from a recent stroke and weakened by grief over the loss of his beloved Jim two weeks prior (see obituary for SHAEFFER, James Richard). Alex is predeceased by his parents Mary Jean and William DUNCAN, sister Dora WAY (Bill,) brother Douglas DUNCAN (Vicki,) sister Sheila STAMBULSKI, brother-in-law Denny RAGEN, and cousin and great friend May WAY. Deeply saddened by his loss are sister Gertrude RAGEN, step-sister Sandy VERNON, brother-in-law Stanley STAMBULSKI, and many devoted nieces and nephews. Alex will be affectionately remembered and deeply missed by all members of the Shaeffer family for his humour, generous spirit, and hospitality. Many people in the "Doggie Profession" will remember Alex and Jim. They started out showing dogs, went on to their own breeding kennels in Uxbridge, Ontario, and eventually settled down and opened the grooming business "The Beauty Salon for Dogs" on O'Connor Drive in Toronto. When it came time to retire they took their two pups Maude and Fred and moved to Niagara Falls where they enjoyed a beautiful home and garden, and made some wonderful new Friends, both two legged and four. The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses of the Greater Niagara General Hospital for their tender loving care and support, not only to Alex and Jim, but the family as well. Special thanks go out to a wonderful friend and mentor Paul BARBER; your gentle spirit, calm demeanor, offers of respite, and quiet talks soothed our hearts. Cremation has taken place. In memory of Alex and Jim, please support an animal shelter, an agency that trains service dogs, or just take a few minutes to walk your four legged best friend. God bless you Alex. We are so proud of you!Arrangements entrusted to Niagara Funeral Alternatives, (905) 894-0120.

RAGLAND o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-06-14 published
Neil YOUNG's father was an icon in own right
Sports journalist also a noted author
By James CHRISTIE, Tuesday, June 14, 2005, Page S1
With reports from William HOUSTON and Canadian Press
The labels that people attach to the name of Scott YOUNG inevitably mention prominently that he was the father of pop music icon Neil YOUNG.
But YOUNG, who died Sunday in Kingston, Ontario, at the age of 87, deserved the title of icon in his own right as a journalist, author, colleague and spinner of big-league dreams for kids who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s.
YOUNG's trilogy of hockey books for boys, Scrubs on Skates, Boy on Defence and Boy at the Leafs' Camp, were food for fantasy for the youth of a hockey-loving country. They were only a part of a body of work that included 40 books of fiction and autobiography drawn from a career in which YOUNG travelled the world covering everything from the Second World War to the assassination of John F. Kennedy and nearly every major sporting event in North America.
In his own field, he was just as big a star as the heroes he covered working for The Globe and Mail, the Winnipeg Free Press, The Canadian Press, the Toronto Telegram and Maclean's and Sports Illustrated magazines. He loved his craft. He was skilled in the telling of stories, and lessons were more important than the vanity of embellished prose. He made a reader comfortable, involved.
"He was someone who preferred to be at home," Margaret HOGAN, his wife of 25 years, said yesterday from Kingston in an interview with the Peterborough Examiner. "He went to bed early, he got up early. He wrote early in the morning. He was a writer, he was a kind, hospitable person who loved to walk in the country and follow the seasons."
YOUNG was born April 14, 1918, in Cypress River, Manitoba He lived with his mother and other relatives in several Prairie towns after his parents split up when he was 13. As an adult, YOUNG would follow a similar path.
He married three times, to Edna Blow RAGLAND, Astrid Carlson MEAD and HOGAN and had a total of seven children and step-children.
YOUNG began his journalism career officially at age 18 as a sportswriter at the Winnipeg Free Press in 1936. He also supported the family selling short stories published in Collier's, Argosy and the American magazines.
He moved to The Canadian Press in Toronto, where he would cover both news and sports, at the age of 23 after the paper refused to give him a raise.
YOUNG told Canadian Press in 1994 that Free Press managing editor George FERGUSON told him, "You will never be worth more than $25 a week to the Winnipeg Free Press."
YOUNG covered the Second World War for Canadian Press from London, then served in the Royal Canadian Navy 1944-45.
In 1957, YOUNG joined The Toronto Globe and Mail as a sports columnist.
He covered Grey Cups, World Series, Stanley Cups, the Olympics and appeared on Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts.
A talented and resourceful reporter, he was seconded to cover a Royal tour and write a general column, leaving an opening on the sports page that would be filled by Dick BEDDOES. He jumped to the Telegram in the 1960s, then made his way back to The Globe in the 1970s.
YOUNG said in his memoir A Writer's Life that his hockey books for boys "were based on hockey as I had known it in Winnipeg high schools and junior teams."
Hockey, as YOUNG knew it, was the brand espoused by Toronto Maple Leafs founder Conn SMYTHE and Stanley-Cup-winning coach George (Punch) IMLACH, for whom he would also author books.
He gave up newspapers in 1980, dismayed by what he saw as a twist in the journalistic profession, away from reporting facts and quoting real contacts to scandal hunting via "unnamed sources."
His novels and non-fiction work included The Flood, the two Arctic thrillers Murder in a Cold Climate and The Shaman's Knife, and 1984's Neil and Me, about his relationship with his famous rock 'n' roll son.
HOGAN said her husband hadn't written for several years.
Peterborough Mayor Sylvia SUTHERLAND said YOUNG's death left a void in the landscape of Canadian journalism.
"He was one of the outstanding journalists of his time," she said. "He had an incisive intelligence. He knew how to get a good story. I love Scott. I miss him a lot, everybody will. He's one of the great legends of Canadian journalism and it's a loss to those of us who love journalism."
SUTHERLAND said she first met YOUNG in the mid-1960s, when she worked at the Toronto Telegram. "We became close Friends in the '70s when we all moved to Peterborough," she said.
HOGAN said she and her husband moved to Kingston last October to be closer to her family. But they kept the family farm in Cavan.
"We still use and love the farm," HOGAN said.
"In the late '60s he was looking for property. He settled on this property in the Cavan hills."
The couple were there only two weeks ago, the last time SUTHERLAND saw her friend.
"Right until the end he was a very graceful and gracious man," she said. "He had been ill for a number of years, but he was still the same sweet Scott. He loved to talk about the old days in journalism and it was fun to do that with him."
