TURNBULL, Brian Murray, LLB
(Barrister and Solicitor)
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Brian on Friday, March 24th, 2006; in his 62nd year. Brian is survived by his devoted wife and soulmate Rosemary (FAUBERT) who has treasured their life together for over 35 years. Brian was born on June 27th, 1944 to Robert and Kathleen (predeceased) TURNBULL in Fife, Scotland. He will be deeply missed by his cherished father and his dear sister Kathleen CHARLTON of Barrie, Ontario. He is also survived by his stepmother Mary (SIEGRIST) and her family Jan REGIS, Eric, Stephen and Barry SIEGRIST who has not only been one of Brian's devoted caregivers but a wonderful support to Rosemary during this difficult time. And he will be sadly missed by his many other relatives, Friends, neighbours, and colleagues. Brian has faced many challenges in his life with unwavering determination and such a positive attitude. He has also had several special accomplishments including winning a Gold Medal at the 1967 Pan Am Games for swimming some 6 years after being seriously injured in a car accident which left him a paraplegic at age 17. He was named Orillia's Athlete of the Year in 1968, won several public speaking contests over the years and coached and mentored many aspiring young lawyers. He also made time for his community serving on the Cancer Society, the Ethics Board for Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital, the Terriers Hockey Club, the Big Brother Association and belonged to both the Kinsmen and Rotary Clubs. But Brian's crowning moment was when he was admitted to Osgoode Hall Law School at age 40 after owning and managing several small businesses in Simcoe County and Toronto. Brian loved practicing the law and was deeply respected and admired by Judges, Lawyers, Court Staff and the many clients he assisted with his fair, compassionate, non-judgmental way. Brian loved his home, maintaining his property, working on model ships, cooking, entertaining Friends, and travelling. He and Rosemary were fortunate enough to do extensive travelling and particularly enjoyed visiting Brian's homeland Scotland and spending time in the Caribbean. He leaves Rosemary, his Friends and family with so many wonderful, funny, precious memories and he will be so missed. Brian TURNBULL - a friend to many; and inspiration to all. Following cremation, the family will receive Friends at the Mundell Funeral Home, 79 West Street North, Orillia, on Monday, March 27th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and on Tuesday, March 28th at the Hawk Ridge Golf and Country Club, Orillia from 3: 30 until time of Memorial Service at 4: 30 p.m. A Reception to Celebrate Brian's Life will be held immediately following the Memorial Service. If desired, Memorial Donations to the Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society, or the charity of your choice would be gratefully appreciated. Messages of condolence are welcome at www.mundellfuneralhome.com.

JOHNSTONE, Madam Justice Cecilia
On April 15, 2006, Madam Justice Cecilia JOHNSTONE of Edmonton passed away at the age of 54 years after a lengthy battle with cancer. She lived a life of passion and grace. Cecilia is survived by her loving husband, John DAY and his children, Jennifer, Jacquie and Olivia; her mother, Anne and her lifelong family friend, Ernie FOSS; her brother, Tim and his wife, Ruby; her uncle and aunts and cousins. Cecilia was predeceased by her father, Lawrence in 1962. This extraordinary woman was an accomplished teacher, lawyer and jurist in our community. She was born, raised and educated in Edmonton. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alberta in 1973 and her LLB from the Faculty of Law in 1974. Cecilia articled with the then Stratton Lucas firm, to Joseph J. Stratton (later a Justice of the Court of Appeal), and was admitted to the Bar in 1975. She remained with the firm, practicing in the area of wills and estates until her appointment to the Court of Queen's Bench in 1996. She was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1988. Cecilia was a natural teacher. She was course head of the Wills and Estates Bar Admission Course, a member of the Board of Directors for the Legal Education Society of Alberta, a panelist for numerous legal education seminars, a mentor in the Wills and Estates Program and a sessional instructor at the Faculty of Law. Cecilia was a leader at the bar. She was President of the Edmonton Bar Association (1988-89); the first female President of the Alberta Branch of the Canadian Bar Association (1990-91); a member of the American Bar Association; and the National President of the Canadian Bar Association (1993-94). Cecilia courageously championed the fair treatment of women in the legal system and played a major role in the adoption of the recommendations of the 1993 Bertha Wilson Task Force on gender equality. To celebrate her accomplishments in promoting equality in Canada, the Canadian Bar Association honoured Cecilia with the Touchstone Award in 1997. She also received the Distinguished Service Award for the Profession in 1995 from the Law Society of Alberta and the Canadian Bar Association (Alberta Branch). In 2000, she received the first Alumni Honour Award from the University of Alberta, recognizing her service to the community and her significant contribution to the legal profession. Cecilia was devoted to the community. She served as a member of the Board of Directors of Junior Achievement, President of the Saint Thomas Moore Lawyers' Guild, President of the Estate Planning Council, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Western Catholic Reporter, Chair of the Northern Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation and then member of the Hospital's Board of Management (now the Stollery Children's Health Centre), Chancellor of Newman Theological College, Chair of the Judges' Forum of the Canadian Bar Association and as a member of various governmental advisory committees. Cecilia was a woman well loved by a large circle of family and Friends in her community, across the country, and beyond. Cecilia was known for her passionate efforts on behalf of others, whether ensuring underprivileged school children would have Christmas or penning ground-breaking family or human rights decisions. We are sad to lose this elegant flame of conviction and compassion. Mass of Christian Burial Saturday, April 22 at 10: 00 a.m. at Saint_Joseph's Basilica, 10044-113 Street, Edmonton with Reverend Mike McCaffery officiating, Concelebrants - Most Reverend J.N.
