MANSER, James
James MANSER embarked on his Spiri tual Journey, Monday evening on February 21st, 2005. Jim was a dedicated loyal employee at Dow Chemical for 35 years. Highly respected by co-workers for his strong skills and compassionate nature. Jim selflessly volunteered within his community. He excelled to President of the Sarnia and District Crimestoppers Association where, in addition to many other responsibilities, was able to raise funds for local charities. Jim touched the lives of many people through work, organizations and community events, but it is the family and Friends of James MANSER who were truly blessed. Jim was a true, dedicated friend. He was loyal and dependable in times of need and a wonderfully animated character the rest of times. His Friends will greatly miss his companionship but his spirit lives strong in their hearts. Jim and his wife Linda were married for 40 years. Jim's top priority was being a loving husband and father. He took Linda and his three daughters Cindy, Sue and Samantha up north to a summer cottage every year while they were growing up. In later years, Jim and Linda had a boat at Bridgeview Marina where family and Friends created many memories. Jim was blessed with two granddaughters in 1990 and 1992. Alexa and Cora are his special little girls. They both love him with all their hearts as he does them. Surrounded by all of these ladies, Jim was so happy to receive Rich STOCKDALE and Kevin SSAINTAIR as his sons. Finally he has some men on his team! Even his dogs were female. Poor guy!
Jim is survived by many family and Friends. His loyal wife Linda and youngest girl Sam with her two daughters Lexie and Cora. His daughter Cindy and son-in-law Rich. His daughter Sue and son-in-law Kevin. Jim's mother Jeanne MANSER, his sister Bev and (Leon), his brother Fred and (Sharla). His grand-doggies Tanner, Pokey, Jacob, Dakota, Noodles and Ralphie! The funeral service will be held on Friday, February 25, 2005 at 11: 00 a.m. at St. Christopher's Roman Catholic Church, 68 Union Street, Forest, Ontario. Interment in Resurrection Cemetery, Sarnia. Friends will be received at Smith Funeral Home, 1576 London Line, Sarnia on Thursday afternoon from 3 to 5 and evening from 7 to 9 p.m. Prayers will be held at 7: 30 p.m. Sympathy donations made in Jim's name would be greatly appreciated. We suggest Bluewater Health - Palliative Care Unit or the Cancer Research for Mesothelioma. Memories and condolences may be emailed to smithfuneralhome@cogeco.net

SSAINTAIR, Ronald Lorne
In loving memory of a dear father, Ronald Lorne, who passed away 5 years ago today, March 5, 2000.
On the day the Angel came and took your hand,
We cried as you left for an unknown land,
But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight,
For your soul was a diamond, a shinning so bright.
We remember you, you are with us,
And we're not afraid.
"Mom is with you now".
Lovingly remembered by daughter Kim and son Todd.

SSAINTAIR, Arthur, 1818 -- Died This Day
Tuesday, August 23, 2005, Page S9
Soldier and politician born in Thurso, Scotland, on March 23, Educated at the University of Edinburgh, he purchased a commission in the British army and was sent to Canada. He took part in the capture of Louisburg, Nova Scotia, on July 26, 1758, and fought under General James WOLFE at the Plains of Abraham. In 1762, he resigned his commission, bought a vast tract of Pennsylvania land and acquired wealth. In 1776, he threw in his lot with George Washington under whom he held the rank of brigadier-general. In 1787, he served as president of the Continental Congress and was named governor of what today is Ohio and Michigan. He sought to end native American land claims and to clear the way for white settlement. The policy was meant to provoke Indians into fighting, so that U.S. forces could then wipe them out. Instead, the U.S. army met a series of defeats. In 1791, he personally led a punitive expedition that ended up being routed at the Battle of the Wabash, with 600 dead. He resigned from the army and, in 1802, was removed as governor. He retired to his Pennsylvania property, where he suffered a series of business reverses and died in poverty. Lake St. Clair is named for him.

Evelyn HORNE, Civil Servant and Volunteer: 1907-2005
Ottawa secretary worked for Mackenzie KING and was acquainted with a succession of prime ministers. From her vantage point at the centre of power, she saw everything and knew everyone
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, May 17, 2005 Page S9
Ottawa -- Everyone came to see Evelyn HORNE to pick her brains on people and policy, including Jean CHRÉTIEN. She spent 30 years at the centre of political power. Starting with Mackenzie KING, Miss HORNE knew five prime ministers in a row, including Louis SSAINTURENT, John DIEFENBAKER, Lester PEARSON and Pierre TRUDEAU.
From 1941 to 1973, Miss HORNE perched just off centre stage as a perceptive spectator of some of the most tumultuous events in recent Canadian history -- from the anxious years of the Second World War to the new welfare state that came later. Surrounded by statesmen, politicians, governors-general and civil servants, Miss HORNE knew practically all of them, many on a first-name basis.
"She told me that she knew CHRÉTIEN when he was a young pup who came and sat on the corner of her desk and talked politics," said her nephew, Robert PIKE of Ottawa.
Other Ottawa mandarins who valued Miss HORNE for her administrative skills during the '40s and '50s included Prime Minister Paul MARTIN's father, Paul MARTIN Sr., Jack PICKERSGILL and C.D. HOWE.
For all that, Miss HORNE never forgot the years she spent working for Mackenzie KING. Getting that job was a "case of being in the right place at the right time and knowing the right people though I would be selling myself short if I didn't admit that I had some native intelligence and was willing to go the second mile into overtime when it was necessary," she said in 1997.
Miss HORNE first attracted Mr. King's attention when, as a provincial civil servant, she was secretary of the committee organizing the Nova Scotia segment of the 1939 visit to Canada of King George Virgin Islands and Queen Elizabeth.
"When Mr. KING asked to meet me during his tour of East Coast defences in the fall of 1940, I knew I was to be interviewed for a job. And what an interview! Presumably, someone had told him that I could write a fairly good letter; he asked me nothing about my work capabilities," said Miss HORNE.
Instead, Mr. KING quizzed her about the architectural features of the room they were sitting in at Nova Scotia's Province House, Canada's oldest seat of government. "[It was] the most perfect example of Adam architecture in North America. He asked me to explain the symbolism of the bas-relief around the fireplace and recount the history behind the life-size portraits of kings and queens that adorned the walls," she said.
Fortunately, Miss HORNE knew all the answers and found herself in Ottawa in January of 1941. "My first reaction was disappointment. I found the city dull and boring -- after Halifax. There was no immediate awareness that there was a war on. And I was very disappointed in [my new] job. I was assigned to do the 'routine correspondence.' "
It was so simple and repetitive, she was "bored to tears. When I could stand it no longer, I complained to the boss -- not Mr. KING, of course, but [to his] principal secretary. I said I wanted to go back home. The work was too easy -- there was no challenge I didn't have enough to do. As a result, I was given the responsibility for the whole of the Prime Minister's correspondence."
That task was not without its lighter moments, Miss HORNE told her niece, Frances PIKE. " One day, she reached an envelope addressed 'To the Biggest Prick in Canada.' There was nothing inside except an unused condom. 'Mr. PICKERSGILL,' she said, 'what do I do with this'? He said, 'Miss HORNE, I'll take care of it. As far as the contents are concerned, you may do with it what you will.'"
Although Miss HORNE rarely saw Mr. KING during the war, the Prime Minister's Office "was an exciting place to be, right at the heart of government, during those increasingly intense years of war. There were so many pressing concerns, and all kinds of people wrote to the Prime Minister about all kinds of problems. I had to find the answers, or find the people who could.
"I learned so much, not only about government, but also about the people of this country, who showed so much courage, stoicism, and forbearance in the face of all the tragedy and the hardships that affected us all during those terrible years."
In 1946, Miss HORNE moved from the East Block to Laurier House, Mr. KING's home, where she handled his personal correspondence and did some speechwriting. "I became acquainted with [him] as a person, and I liked him."
In 1950, Miss HORNE struck an early blow for women's rights after she went to work for the assistant private secretary to Robert WINTERS, then minister of reconstruction and supply. Despite all her experience, Mr. WINTERS "wouldn't take her on trips because he thought that was unseemly. So he hired a man, whom she had to train. He was hopeless, but making more money than her," said Mr. PIKE, the nephew.
When Miss HORNE complained to her boss that she should be earning as much as the new man, he retorted that he saw no reason for a raise -- she was making excellent money "for a woman."
"So she packed up and went home," said Mr. PIKE. " Then she called Jack PICKERSGILL, who told her to sit tight for a few days and he'd see what he could do. Very soon after, she went to work for Ellen FAIRCLOUGH at the Department of Citizenship and Immigration."
Miss HORNE finished her career with the federal government in 1973 when she retired from the National Film Board. Awarded the Coronation Medal in 1953 and the Centennial Medal in 1967, she received a Governor-General's Caring Canadian Award in 2004 for her years spent as a volunteer.
Miss HORNE first started volunteering during the First World War, when she knitted scarves for the troops. "I distinctly remember the outbreak of the war in 1914, and I recall many occasions when I went to the train station in Truro with my mother to meet the troop trains to present gifts of food and cigarettes and warm knitted items."
When the Second World War broke out in 1939, Miss HORNE's volunteering became a "way of life. I worked as a check-girl for the weekly dances at the famous North End Services Canteen, and playing the odd game of snooker with the boys who didn't feel like dancing. Many times, I would best serve by lending a sympathetic ear or looking at pictures of sweethearts or wives and children back home."
Life in Halifax during the war was grim, she recounted. "The most vulnerable spot in all of Canada, the city was actually at war and everyone pitched in to help. I can laughingly say that my war work was entertaining and being entertained by the officers of the great battleships that anchored in Halifax harbour. We had a lively social life.
"But the shadow of war was always close at hand; and more than once, men I had danced with one night were brought back two days later, burned beyond recognition when their ship was torpedoed by German U-boats just beyond the harbour headlands. Volunteer visits to Camp Hill, the [military] hospital, were a high priority for me at that time."
Evelyn Annie Ethel HORNE was born on February 23, 1907, in Truro, Nova Scotia She died of heart failure on March 21, 2005, in Ottawa. She was 98. She leaves her niece, Frances; nephews Robert, David, Peter and Donald; 16 great-nieces; and 11 great-great-nieces and nephews.

William SOMERVILLE, Mover And Shaker 1921-2005
Poor farmer's son rose to the corporate boardroom and maintained a lifelong passion for politics
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, August 15, 2005, Page S11
Every summer when he went to the family cottage for a vacation, William SOMERVILLE would bring the same book to re-read. It was Dale Carnegie's classic self-improvement text: How To Make Friends And Influence People.
In retrospect, the book's central message -- work relentlessly at getting people to do what you want them to do by having them think it is what they want to do -- captures much of the reason for Mr. SOMERVILLE's highly successful forays into business, government and the voluntary sector.
"He understood, when you deal with government, you don't go and ask what you can do for me. You understand that they have problems and they want help in solving their problems," recalled Hal JACKMAN, the Toronto financier for whom he worked for 20 years.
That, an affable manner, a firm handshake and a photographic memory for names helped Mr. SOMERVILLE rise to chairman and Chief Executive Officer of National Trust Co., chairman of the Ontario Pension Fund, and president of the Stratford Festival, among other things.
The work ethic came naturally to a poor farmer's son in Saint Marys, Ontario, whose poverty worsened when at 5, his father died.
The SOMERVILLE family's poverty meant that, unlike his brother, Mr. SOMERVILLE couldn't go on to any higher education after high school, but instead joined his brother's drug store. The two brothers then went into the wholesale drug trade until Mr. SOMERVILLE joined British Mortgage and Trust Co. in Saint Marys in 1965. The main reason seemingly was the challenge of doing something different, as he would joke afterward that it took him 20 years in the trust business to achieve his drug-business salary.
All the while he was indulging in his other favourite activity after work -- politics. Born into a big-L Liberal family, married to the daughter of another Liberal family, Mr. SOMERVILLE had grown up in a small-town Ontario atmosphere in which politics was not only discussed but so intensely scrutinized that everyone's probable vote was dissected after each election.
The political bent meant, first of all, that Mr. SOMERVILLE was elected mayor of Saint Marys in the 1960s. In 1963, a young John TURNER came to town to open a dam and the two hit it off immediately. The result was a 40-year Friendship with a man Mr. SOMERVILLE told his family was the most impressive politician he had ever met. The feeling was reciprocated.
"He had a dedicated work ethic, a fine sense of detail, a personal warmth for those of us he dealt with," is how former prime minister John TURNER summed up Mr. SOMERVILLE.
In 1968, Mr. SOMERVILLE tried to launch himself onto the national political stage by running for Parliament as part of Pierre Trudeau's election steamroller. While Mr. TRUDEAU swept the country, even Trudeaumania could not get Mr. SOMERVILLE elected in Conservative, rural, southwestern Ontario. However, after the election, Mr. TRUDEAU came to the SOMERVILLE house for a get-together and galvanized the neighbourhood.
"It was the biggest jam of people you ever saw," said his wife Jean. A picture of the time shows Mr. SOMERVILLE beside Mr. TRUDEAU beaming a characteristic cherubic smile.
Mr. SOMERVILLE found time to be the chairman of fundraising for both the Liberal Party of Ontario and the Liberal Party of Canada. His behind-the-scenes abilities led to him to be described as one of the most important people in Ontario politics who didn't hold a seat in Parliament.
According to Mrs. SOMERVILLE, while her husband always had high political aspirations for himself -- at his retirement he mused to a local newspaper that he always wanted to be prime minister his growing business interests meant he couldn't pursue full-time politics.
In mid-1965, Atlantic Acceptance Corp. collapsed with $150-million in uncollected debts. British Mortgage and Trust Co. was part of the same company, and Mr. SOMERVILLE feared he would lose his job. However, he wangled a supposed five-minute interview with Walter HARRIS, who had been the federal minister of finance in Louis SSAINTURENT's Liberal government, and who was the head of Victoria and Grey Trust, which had taken over British Mortgage after the debacle.
The two men immediately clicked, both professionally and politically, and after a three-hour interview, Mr. SOMERVILLE was offered the head of British Mortgage's office in Stratford, Ontario
In Stratford, he soon found himself involved in the promotion of the Stratford Festival, an organization of which he became chairman in 1985/86. His participation was more an example of his sense of what a public-spirited person should do than a result of his great love of theatre. "He was not necessarily a Shakespeare person," said his wife, dryly. But he was exactly what a festival that was running a million-dollar yearly deficit needed -- a sound businessman. Within a few years of his taking over, Stratford was turning a profit.
In 1970, Victoria and Grey was taken over by Mr. JACKMAN, who also found Mr. SOMERVILLE to be an astute businessman with a genius at making and keeping Friends. He was particularly impressed with the affinity for the small businessmen and farmers of rural Ontario that Mr. SOMERVILLE maintained while working on Bay Street.
The relationship with Mr. JACKMAN, a well-known supporter of the Conservative Party, underscored something about Mr. SOMERVILLE's Liberalism. He was what you might call a blue Liberal. "Dad liked the Liberals as a Tory party with a social conscience," said his son, John.
Eventually, Mr. SOMERVILLE became head of National Trust, Canada's third-largest trust company, when it merged with Victoria and Grey in the 1980s. Not only did the merger initially mean working 18-hour days and seven-day weeks, but he had to both cut staff and increase the workload. He was so cost-conscious at the time that the story floated about that he had cancelled the office Christmas party. No, no, he later told a journalist. He had given the job of organizing the party to one of his lieutenants who had become miffed with the post-merger politics of the workplace. "The guy... was planning to leave and he walked and did nothing about [the party]," he explained sadly.
For a man who often told his family that work was his hobby, his retirement from National Trust in 1989 was hardly a retirement at all. Two days later he was approached by David Peterson's Liberal government to become chairman of the Ontario Pension Board. He was so successful at this that he was reappointed both by Bob Rae's New Democratic Party government and Mike Harris's Conservative one after that.
He also served as chancellor of Windsor University and was honorary chancellor for life at Assumption University, a small Catholic school in Windsor.
At the end of his life the true-blue Liberal had become a simply blue Conservative. Upset with what he saw as Liberal arrogance in power, in the past few elections he had begun to vote Tory. He was a great admirer of Ontario premier Mike Harris, who he thought ran the government with business smarts, but in an even more right turn, the formerly blue Liberal was lavish in his praise for the federal Conservative Party's bluest of leaders Stephen Harper.
William Henry SOMERVILLE was born in Perth County, Ontario, on April 25, 1921. He died of the effects of Parkinson's disease in Stratford General Hospital on July 23. He was 84. He is survived by wife Jean, son John, daughter Karen and four grandchildren.

LAMBERTS, 63, stage's mirth master
By Robert CREW, Arts Writer
He was a comic genius with a troubled soul, a man able to leave a whole theatre helpless with laughter.
Toronto-born Heath LAMBERTS, for many years a mainstay at the Shaw Festival, died early yesterday in a Pittsburgh hospital.
"He was a genius," said Andrew Paul, artistic director of the Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre. "I don't use that word lightly. There are very few people that have the sort of skills he has as a comedic actor and a clown."
LAMBERTS had been in remission after being diagnosed with cancer about five years ago, but had a recurrence recently and the cancer had spread to his vital organs, said Paul.
At one time LAMBERTS was, without a doubt, Canada's favourite farceur. His 12 seasons at the Shaw Festival between 1974 and 1985 were filled with wildly successful productions of light fare such as One for the Pot, Tons of Money and A Flea in Her Ear.
An actor of bustling energy and razor-sharp timing, his supreme comic gifts won him a Dora Award in 1981 for his performance as Pseudolus in a Toronto production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
But it was a production of Cyrano de Bergerac, staged at the Shaw in 1982 and 1983 and revived at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in 1985, that confirmed that his talents extended far deeper.
His deeply romantic Cyrano made you laugh then made you cry, finally breaking your heart. It won him his second Dora.
"This is one occasion where you can use the phrase 'God-given,'" Barry MacGREGOR, who acted with LAMBERTS on many occasions, said of LAMBERTS yesterday.
"He was brilliant at making people laugh but was sometimes impossible to work with. He had a lot of demons and didn't suffer fools gladly.
"I think he expected anyone who was working with him to have the same intense concentration that he had."
LAMBERTS was a practising Buddhist for many years, restlessly seeking for self-knowledge and enlightenment. Media interviews with him were volatile and unpredictable.
Born James LANCASTER in 1941, LAMBERTS began his career as a boy soprano with the Toronto Opera Company. He was a member of the first class (along with Martha Henry and Diana Leblanc) at the newly opened National Theatre School in Montreal in 1960.
Jim SSAINTWRENCE was a childhood friend who knew LAMBERTS from the days that they were both boy sopranos.
"He prided himself that he never had another job other than acting," he said.
After graduating in 1963 and winning the Toronto Telegram Award for Most Promising Newcomer, he joined the Stratford Festival, winning two Guthrie Awards.
In addition to his acclaimed work at the Shaw Festival, he excelled in a number of high-profile roles at the Vancouver Playhouse in the late 1970s.
The parting with the Shaw Festival was less than happy but LAMBERTS then made a number of appearances in Toronto, notably in David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross in 1987 and a revival of One for the Pot in 1996. The latter won him his third Dora.
LAMBERTS was named to the Order of Canada in 1987.
He also had a successful run on Broadway in the Disney production Beauty and the Beast. in the mid-1990s. He then starred alongside Sarah Jessica Parker in the 1996-7 New York production of Once Upon a Mattress.
LAMBERTS' career had slowed over the last few years. He busied himself with supporting comedic roles that didn't interfere with his cancer treatments.
He had moved to Pittsburgh a few years ago because he was in a relationship with a woman there, and because of the health care available, said Paul.
Jennifer PHIPPS, who performed with LAMBERTS in several productions at the Shaw Festival, remembered him as a "marvellous, wonderful comic.
"I always thought he was extraordinarily funny."
Many, many thousands of theatregoers would agree.
