OSBORNE, Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS)
Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS) OSBORNE passed away on January 1, 2006 in Grey Bruce Health Centre, Markdale, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.
Jean was born August 29, 1929 to Bert and Emily EDWARDS, who had just immigrated from England to Canada, finally landing in Dundalk. Jean grew up in Dundalk. She was an excellent student and athlete and graduated at a very young age. Then Jean went to work at the Bank of Commerce (C.I.B.C.) in Dundalk.
She met and married her life partner, Dallas OSBORNE, in June 1949, a marriage that lasted over 50 years. Through the years Jean and Dallas raised their four children, Lynda, Steve, Doug and Shelly, while Jean continued to work at the bank. Jean was a kind and caring mother as well as grandmother and then great-grandmother.
Nothing to do with family or at her work was too much for her to handle. She enjoyed the many family get-togethers at the cottage at Wasaga Beach.
On January 31, 1987, Jean officially retired after 32 faithful years at the bank. She had many, many Friends in the community.
Later, Jean and Dallas left Dundalk and moved to Barrie for a few short years, then they both retired to Brewsters Lake, Singhampton. After the passing of Dallas, Jean moved to Markdale. She enjoyed her time there, and met many new Friends.
Through the years Jean and Dallas attended services at Erskine Presbyterian Church, Mount Pleasant Missionary Church, and then later Jean attended as many services as she could at the Eugenia United Church.
Left to mourn Jean are her four children, Lynda (Hans) MUELLER, Steve (Brenda) OSBORNE, Doug (Delores) OSBORNE, and Shelly LAMBERT, ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Also brothers, Jack (Mary) EDWARDS and Peter (Elske) EDWARDS, as well as sisters-in-law Donna WILLIAMS and Marie (Barry) ADAM/ADAMS.
Funeral services were held at the McMillan Jack Funeral Home on Wednesday, January 4.
Patrick HALFERTY, Jean's friend and pastor for some years ably conducted the service that would have pleased Jean very much. Her daughter Lynda played the hymn "Hope" on the piano during the service.
The pallbearers were Chris OSBORNE, Gene MATTHEWS (grand_sons,) Doug OSBORNE, Cameron EDWARDS, Darryl GREEN (nephews,) and Hans MUELLER (son-in-law.) Flowerbearers were grandchildren, interment was held in Dundalk Cemetery following the service. A lovely luncheon was served to family and Friends at the Erskine Presbyterian Church by their ladies group.
The family once again, appreciated everyone's kind words, prayers and support during this difficult time. Mother is and will be truly missed by her family and Friends.

Donald THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON loved family and the law
He would read a book a day and made regular visits to the local library, said daughter and Owen Sound mayor Ruth LOVELL
By Scott DUNN and Denis LANGLOIS, Sun Times Staff, Page A1
Long-time Grey County Justice Donald THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON died Monday in his 90th year.
THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON practised law in London, Ontario, from 1940 until his appointment to the Grey County court bench in 1970. He retired in 1990.
THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's daughter Ruth LOVELL, the mayor of Owen Sound, said the family will always cherish her father's humour.
"He had a wonderful sense of humour," LOVELL said in an interview Tuesday evening.
She said her father had two passions in life -- his family and the law. Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON adored his grandchildren, LOVELL said, and they spent a lot of time with him.
He enjoyed cross-country skiing, cycling and reading.
LOVELL said he would read a book a day and made regular visits to the local library.
That love for the library has prompted the family to ask that donations be made to the library's book fund in memory of Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and in lieu of flowers.
Owen Sound lawyer Brian BARRIE said he had "nothing but admiration" for Justice THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
BARRIE recalls hearing as a young lawyer Justice THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was supposed to be "smart, curt, A bit crusty," -- a worrisome prospect for a young defence lawyer starting out in county court.
"I found him to be smart, very polite but he would not suffer fools lightly," BARRIE said. "And he usually had the case figured out with the right decision long before the lawyers got to the end of their presentations."
Justice flew with him because he was so efficient.
When he wasn't busy he made some calls to other jurisdictions, looking for work to do, BARRIE said.
BARRIE noted the judge's sense of humour and that "all that crustiness was just a little bit… a gown that he wore because he had a real touch for humanity and understanding of humanity and loved a good story and could laugh with the best of them."
Ralph ADAM/ADAMS, a Sun Times reporter for 11 years, remembered the judge as a "regular guy."
He would talk with the judge in his chambers about matters in court, some he'd use in stories and some he wouldn't.
"He ran it pretty well. He wasn't too harsh," ADAM/ADAMS recalled Wednesday.
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON is survived by his wife Eleanor, three children, including Peter and Tim, his grandchildren Kelly, Scott and Chris LOVELL, Sean and Jennifer THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Mimmi, Lina and Erik THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and great-grandchildren Alexis and A.J.
He is also survived by his sister, Ruth Dawson, and his brother Jack THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Predeceased by his brother, Alfred.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

ADAM/ADAMS, Margaret Annie (née NORTHCOTT)
Born on May 30, 1922 in Sarnia. Passed away on Monday, February 6, 2006 in Lindsay. She was the proud daughter of John and Iva NORTHCOTT. Margaret had two sisters June Marie and Francis Mae and four brothers Jack, Cecil, Bill and Lyle all who have predeceased her. She was much loved by her step dad, James Llewellyn BURLEY, who most often called her "Annie". Margaret was married for more than 50 years to her husband Lloyd ADAM/ADAMS, who died a short three months ago. The most endearing thought by those left behind is that Lloyd and Margaret are happily romping through a meadow or finding a new adventure to explore. Margaret was and always will be loved by her many nieces and nephews, who shall miss her attentive presence. They are; The Reverend Dr. Janet BRIGHAM- TUROWSKI and Gunter, Cheryl and James CRICKS, James and Brenda SHERRELL, Shelley and Carl MAKELA, and the late John NORTHCOTT. Margaret's great nieces and nephews are; Christi and Wayne CRESS, Chase ANDERSON, Hillary and Ben ANDERSON, Brian MAKELA, Christa and Marc JONES, Jamie Sue SHERRELL, Jay SHERRELL, Larry NILES, and Kevin NILES.

ADAM/ADAMS, Hugh
In loving memory of a dear dad and grandpa who passed away 10 years ago today.
We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new,
We thought about you yesterday
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name,
Now all we have are memories
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
We'll always have you in our heart.
We miss you. Love Gary, Becky, Jen and Jesse

In loving memory of a loving husband, father and grandfather, Keith ADAM/ADAMS, who passed away October 21st, 1996. Sometimes an old-fashioned song Brings us a thought of you; Sometimes a flower as we pass along, Or a sky that is azure blue; Or a silver lining in the clouds, When the sun is peeping through. The world changes year to year And Friends from day to day; But never will the one I loved From memory pass away. The years may wipe out many things But this they'll wipe out never, The memory of those happy days Which we have spent together. As I journey toward life's sunset Mourning him who went before, Faith keeps saying, "You'll be with him, When you reach the other shore." You are always in our mind, No matter what we do. All the time within our hearts, There are thoughts of you. Always loved and remembered by his wife Barbara, children and grandchildren.

CARMICHAEL was a legendary figure
By Shawn GIILCK
A Collingwood legend has left us.
Mr. Collingwood, William James Scotty' CARMICHAEL, died last week at 98. The former soldier, town councillor and sometime journalist was a tireless, passionate Collingwood advocate to the end, his daughter Nancy Liotta said.
CARMICHAEL was the eldest of three children. He was born “above a store on Hurontario Street” August 17, 1908. He first showed interest in story-telling, Liotta said, at his mother's feet. The CARMICHAEL family had immigrated to Canada from Ireland in the 1880s with his grandfather and namesake William. CARMICHAEL's mother, Mary Heslip CARMICHAEL, was also Irish and delighted in telling stories.
CARMICHAEL was the editor of the Collingwood Collegiate Institute yearbook, The Gleaner, during his high school years.
As a young man, he edited his own newspaper, but the Great Depression drove it into closure. For the next several years, Liotta said CARMICHAEL crisscrossed Canada and the eastern United States looking for steady work.
He quickly volunteered for military service in 1939 with the Grey and Simcoe Foresters at the outbreak of World War 2. He was married the following year to Anne BYRNES, who died in 1981. He “never stopped feeling her loss,” Liotta said. She was their only child.
In 1943 he was finally sent overseas and served as a scout. In 1944 he was injured by a grenade while on a mission. He subsequently contracted diphtheria from contaminated water and was sent to England for rehabilitation.
When he returned to Collingwood in 1945 he was appointed to a job at the post office. He worked there until 1972.
During that time, CARMICHAEL also worked as a freelance journalist for the Owen Sound Sun Times newspaper and the Toronto Telegram until its demise in 1972. After his retirement, he provided numerous stories to the Enterprise-Bulletin.
Former managing editor Ian ADAM/ADAMS recalled CARMICHAEL as an “encyclopaedia&rdquo of local sports knowledge and trivia.
That was an outgrowth of his long association with local minor hockey, both as a member of the organization and as a journalist covering the Collingwood teams. During that time, he also worked freelance for the CKCB radio station, where he provided colour commentary. Up until the early 1990s, he also provided vignettes to the radio station about local sports history that ran after the noon news.
“He was a bit of a character,” Liotta said. “He wanted to make it to 100, and came pretty close.&rdquo
CARMICHAEL also spearheaded the creation of the Collingwood Sports Hall of Fame in 1974 and was one of the first inductees.
He served as a municipal council member in the 1970s and 80s. In 1986 he was named the Rotary Citizen of the Year. He was also a recipient of the Order of Collingwood in the 1970s.
He is survived by his daughter, five grand-children and eight great-grand-children.

Helen ALLEN, Journalist (1907-2006)
She laboured for decades to improve the lot of unwanted children, many of whom were better off because of her efforts, writes Sandra MARTIN. At the end of the Vietnam War she also helped rescue orphans in Saigon
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
The concept may seem bizarre today, but in its era, the Toronto newspaper column Today's Child was an innovative force intended to improve the lives of thousands of emotionally needy and often physically damaged children. In the early 1960s, back in the days when having a child "out of wedlock" was socially unacceptable and before reliable contraception or abortions were generally available, many young women gave their unplanned babies up for adoption. The ranks of healthy infants were swelled by older children who had been abandoned by parents unable or unwilling to raise their own offspring or who had been removed from dangerous situations. Many of these "hard-to-place" children trundled from one foster home to another or marked birthday after birthday in orphanages and other residential institutions.
Helen ALLEN, a journalist who became a crusader for adoption, believed that all children deserved parents and a home to call their own. For nearly 20 years, she devoted her energies to the task through her column Today's Child in The Telegram in Toronto and the long-running television program Family Finder. Although, nobody knows for certain how many of these adoptions were successful, there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that many, many children were happier and healthier because of Ms. ALLEN's actions.
"Some social workers were very reluctant at the thought of exposing children to the public in this way, because it was an invasion of privacy, but I was all for it," recalled Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, a former social worker and adoption supervisor who knew first-hand the dire circumstances of these children's lives. She and Ms. ALLEN became colleagues and good Friends, sharing the same dedication and sense of humour.
The late media mogul John BASSETT, who was the last publisher of The Telegram, considered Ms. ALLEN's long-running adoption column "her real life's work." Ms. ALLEN "has helped this country enormously by giving new hope and new opportunities to the nation's richest resource, our children," he wrote in a tribute to her in 1982, and "nothing has given me greater pride than being associated with her in this task."
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born near Saskatoon, the only child of a Presbyterian minister and a school teacher. The family eventually settled in Aurora, north of Toronto, as her father moved from one congregation to another. He died of meningitis when Helen was five and her mother worked as a supply teacher to support them both. Ms. ALLEN later described her childhood as happy, although she regretted that there was never enough money to buy her a bicycle. It was only much later that she looked back as an adult and realized that "it's too bad to be an only child, too bad not to have a Dad."
After graduating from high school in 1925, Ms. ALLEN moved to Toronto to do a four-year degree in modern languages (French and German) at University College at the University of Toronto. By then, her widowed mother had married a man named PALMER, so Ms. ALLEN boarded with a family named GRIFFITHS while she attended university, financed with $2000 from her mother's savings. That's how she met the GRIFFITHS' daughter, Phyllis, who became a classmate, then a journalism colleague and a dear friend and housemate until she died more than 50 years later in 1978.
At U of T, Ms. ALLEN joined the German club, which turned out to be a lively collection of people, including professors Geoffrey HOLT and Barker FAIRLEY, who got together on a weekly basis to sing German songs. An older cousin, who worked on the student newspaper, The Varsity, introduced Ms. ALLEN to the editor, a young man named Charles STACEY. (A year older, he was destined for a stellar career as a military historian and became very well known as a biographer of Prime Minister Mackenzie King.) "Somehow I found myself accepting an assignment to cover a freshie tea that first week. It showed up on the front page, without a word changed, and I was hooked," she presciently told Judith ADAM/ADAMS, the author of the 1982 Ontario government publication, Today's Child and Helen ALLEN.
After graduating in 1929, Ms. ALLEN went to work as a reporter for The Telegram, a newspaper founded in 1876 by John Ross ROBERTSON as a vehicle to promote British and Imperial sentiments. For the next three decades, Ms. ALLEN did general assignment reporting, reviewed movies, covered political events and criminal trials, and edited the women's pages. In covering the 1939 Royal Tour of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth she wrote: "Everyone who has seen her is talking about the Queen. The Queen's smile. The Queen's charm. The Queen's beauty. The Queen's lovely gowns."
What made her name, however, was an assignment that she took on reluctantly in 1964 to write an adoption column for the paper. Instead of being the brainchild of one person, the idea came about as a confluence of incidents, experience and inspiration dating back to the early 1960s when The Telegram ran a front-page story about a young boy being publicly beaten by his father on a downtown street corner. Publisher John BASSETT assigned reporter Andrew MacFARLANE to investigate and write an article on child abuse.
Mr. MacFARLANE contacted the office of Doctor James BAND, the deputy minister of welfare in Ontario, who supplied huge amounts of information on child protection services and took Mr. MacFARLANE to visit an orphanage which housed dozens of children three years of age and under. Mr. MacFARLANE quickly realized that many of these children had short attention spans, played aggressively, and, despite being "cuddled" by volunteers, appeared lacking in warmth and curiosity. Both men believed these children needed families and permanent homes, if they were to have any chance of growing up emotionally healthy.
In 1964, Doctor BAND sought out Mr. MacFARLANE, who by then was The Telegram's managing editor, and suggested he run an "advertising" feature to make the public aware of the plight of these forgotten children. Both Mr. MacFARLANE and Mr. BASSETT took up the idea enthusiastically and assigned the column to Ms. ALLEN, telling her to contact the more than 50 regional Children's Aid Societies that operated in Ontario under the Child Welfare Act, find some children who were waiting for families, and run their pictures and write about them in the paper. The plan was to run Today's Child for a few weeks and check the response.
Children's Aid Societies, which are protective by definition, were largely horrified at the idea of parading children, along with their physical and emotional problems, in a public newspaper. To them, the column reeked of "freak shows" at carnivals. Only three were willing to participate -- Hamilton, Kenora and Toronto. Although disappointing, the response was strong enough to give Ms. ALLEN enough children to produce a daily column for three weeks.
The first child was a 15-month-old girl of mixed race named Hope, a difficult placement in those homogeneous days before the immigration rules relaxed and Canada had an official multiculturalism policy. Nevertheless, 40 prospective adoptive parents wrote in response to the story about Hope. Their letters were passed along to the Children's Aid Society for screening, assessing and processing. "I wrote abut 23 children in those first Today's Child columns that summer," Ms. ALLEN recalled years later, "and when the results were finally assessed, 18 of those youngsters found homes."
After three years of daily columns, Today's Child expanded to other daily and weekly papers throughout Ontario. The following year, Ms. ALLEN proposed doing a television version of the column based on the daily Ben Hunter Program in California, which delivered commercials for a variety of products, saving one day a week for children wanting to be adopted. Armed with a tape of the American show, Ms. ALLEN and Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, then Ontario Adoption Co-ordinator, approached CFTO, the Toronto television station that was part-owned by Mr. BASSETT. "It took them all of 15 minutes to make up their minds," Ms. ALLEN reported later. Family Finder, which ran commercial-free, debuted in the fall of 1968 and for years was the longest-running program on the channel.
When The Telegram folded in 1971, the Ontario government hired Ms. ALLEN as an information officer in the Ministry of Community and Social Services. She continued to write the column three times a week (which was syndicated by the government to more than 20 daily newspapers including The Toronto Star), do the television program and speak about adoption to community and service groups.
In the early 1970s, television and newspaper reporting from Vietnam publicized the plight of many of the children who had become victims of the continuing conflict. The orphanages in Saigon were overflowing with abandoned or parentless children. Social changes, including a declining birth rate, had put an end to the baby surplus of a decade before. That fact, plus the human desire to help needy children, had lots of North Americans flying to Vietnam and trying to pick up babies in exchange for cash or services.
The local adoption agencies were floundering, so the Ontario Ministry of Social and Community Services sent Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH and Ms. ALLEN to Saigon to work with the Vietnamese. As the Viet Cong advanced and the Americans pulled out, the two women rescued close to 60 children, brought them to Canada and found homes for them. "The deputy minister told me, 'if we are going to do this, we will give it the same service we give our own children,' Ms. LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH said.
Ms. ALLEN received many honours, including being named to the Order of Canada and an honorary doctorate from York University and the Award of Merit from the City of Toronto. In the late 1970s, she was at an Order of Canada reception when she encountered fellow laureate and University of Toronto military historian Charles STACEY. " When I was at college, I dated Charles, who was then editor of the Varsity. He was in fourth year and I was in second," she told Ms. ADAM/ADAMS. "He went off to Oxford and then Princeton; I went on to the Tely as a reporter."
Ms. ALLEN and Colonel STACEY, a widower, renewed their Friendship and their affection for each other and were married in a small wedding at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Toronto on October 3, 1980. The bride was 73, and the groom 74. A little more than a year later, she officially retired from Today's Child (Judith ADAM/ADAMS took over the column for another seven years) and Family Finder, but continued to spend two days a week answering mail and writing Adoption Bulletins while her husband wrote his books.
The STACEYs were a very companionable couple. They loved to entertain at small dinner parties at Massey College, to read Jane Austen novels aloud to each other and to travel. Col. STACEY died suddenly of a heart attack in November of 1989, after nearly a decade of marriage. She continued to live in their Rosedale apartment until she suffered a heart attack and a fall late in 2002, and moved into the Leaside Retirement Residence.
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born in Dundurn, Saskatchewan., on August 16, 1907. She died in Toronto of congestive heart failure on November 9. She was 99. Predeceased by her husband Charles STACEY and by her dear friend Phyllis GRIFFITHS, she is survived by her god-daughter Nadine BELL and her family.
