Audrey CAMPBELL, 90 Philanthropist
Newspaper magnate's daughter left own legacy in health care, racing
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
A horse breeder, a philanthropist and a nurturer of family and Friends, Audrey CAMPBELL was the last surviving child of newspaper magnate Roy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Together with her three daughters, she gave $25-million to establish the Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. The gift "really was transformational because it was the largest private donation for breast cancer at that point and also because it helped to support the work of Doctor Tak MAK… and allowed him to grow his team and his research organization," said Paul ALOFS, president of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, referring to the renowned cancer researcher.
Mrs. CAMPBELL's younger brother, Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, celebrated her generosity with a public tribute.
"From the time of my first memories, I have looked up to Audrey as my big sister, the person who, along with my parents, looked after me and always had my best interests at heart," he said. "She prefers a low profile and I'm sure all this recognition embarrasses her… [but] she has made me proud of her again."
Phyllis Audrey THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was born in Toronto on July 6, 1917, the eldest child of Roy and Edna (IRVINE) THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Her sister Irma (later BRYDSON) was born in 1918 (died 1966,) and her brother Kenneth in 1923 (obituary June 13, 2006).
Audrey's early years were far from luxurious - her father, the son of a barber, struggled to make enough money for food and rent. The THOMSONs moved to Ottawa in 1925, when she was 8, and to North Bay three years later. Her father worked as a travelling salesman before he paid $1 for a broadcasting licence, bought a 50-watt transmitter on three months credit and started his first radio station, CFCH, in North Bay. Soon, he also bought radio station CKGB in Timmins and then moved into print by acquiring the Timmins Daily Press in 1934.
Three years later, the family moved back to Toronto. Audrey, now 20, attended the University of Toronto and earned a bachelor of arts degree. After the Second World War, she met Queen's University engineering graduate Elwood CAMPBELL, later a high-school math and physics teacher. They married in 1947 and bought a three-bedroom bungalow in Port Credit, where they raised their three daughters, Linda, Gaye and Susan.
Despite her father's immense wealth from his North American and European newspaper interests and his stake in North Sea oil and gas, Mrs. CAMPBELL lived a quiet suburban life, immersed in family and her daughters' activities. While she attended meetings of Woodbridge, the family holding company, she was not involved in the running of the Thomson corporate empire. "I may have inherited my father's title and had many benefits conferred upon me in the business and social world, but Audrey is mind, heart and head of the family," Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said of his older sister in Mrs. CAMPBELL's two younger daughters were interested in riding ponies, which triggered her own interest in standardbred horses. She and her husband started small in the early 1970s, with a part ownership in a single animal. She found early success with horses Armbro Dallas and Arcane Hanover and eventually established the Lothlorien Equestrian Centre in Cheltenham, Ontario, an offshoot of her daughter Susan's own stable of hunters and jumpers called Lothlorien Farms. "Lothlorien" is the name of a forest in J.R.R. Tolkien's fictional Middle-earth.
Breeding and racing horses became an enduring passion for Mrs. CAMPBELL, who eventually had a stable of more than a dozen horses. In 2002, Red River Hanover, which she partly owned, won the $1.5-million prize for harness racing in Toronto. Three years later, Rocknroll Hanover won the Breeders Crown Race at New Jersey's Meadowlands Racetrack.
In 2004, Mrs. CAMPBELL and her daughters decided to invest in health care in a focused way, rather than just making a general donation to the system. They researched where their money might have the most impact and decided to support the work of Doctor MAK because they realized that his work on cancer cells would have far-reaching consequences in breast cancer, but other types of malignancies as well.
Phyllis Audrey CAMPBELL was born in Toronto on July 6, 1917. She died of metastasized melanoma in Toronto Western Hospital on September 23, 2007. She was 90. Predeceased by her husband, Elwood, she leaves her three daughters, 10 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and extended family.

BELL, Mary-Ellen (née THORNBURY)
It is with deep sadness that her family announces the death of Mary-Ellen BELL. She died peacefully in the early morning hours of July 30th, 2007 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Beloved wife of the late George E. BELL. Loving and devoted mother of Jilean (Mark ROTHARMEL.) Much-loved and devoted 'Nanny' to her grandchildren Owen and Marina. Mary-Ellen was very fortunate to be part of a large and loving family and the support and love of the Thornbury clan extends like a warm embrace to all of us. She was also blessed with the love of many caring nieces and nephews who thought the world of her. Her deep connection to her family extended to her beloved grandchildren upon whom she bestowed praise, affection and love. She created many wonderful memories for her family that they will cherish forever. Mary-Ellen touched everyone she knew with her thoughtfulness, warmth and generosity. She lived life to the fullest and pursued many activities and interests. She was a beautiful and elegant woman and a natural athlete who excelled at many sports from semi-pro baseball to golfing and competitive curling and, in her later years, she took up tai chi. She had a lengthy career at Confederation Life before her marriage, quite an accomplishment in those days. Mary-Ellen's varied interests ranged from antique-hunting to gardening and she happily enjoyed traveling near and far whether at the cottage preparing for large gatherings of family and Friends or traveling across Canada and the U.S. Underpinning all these things were her strong sense of family values and her care and concern for others. Mary-Ellen was an active volunteer at a great number of church and community events throughout her lifetime. Her strong sense of values, her boundless energy and her love of life are among the many memories of MaryEllen we will hold close to our hearts. The family wishes to thank their Friends, neighbours and extended family for their love and support and to thank Sylvia Partab, Mary-Ellen's friend and companion, for her compassion and caring from the first moment we met her.

Bill BOSS, 90: Journalist
Canadian Press combat reporter 'ate censors for breakfast'
By Stephen THORNE, Canadian Press, Page S7
Ottawa -- Pierre Berton called him one of the toughest combat reporters he ever knew, a trusted and familiar newsman who "ate censors for breakfast."
Bill BOSS was the epitome of foreign correspondents, roving the world's hot spots in goatee, khakis, silk scarf and black beret.
"The Bill BOSS byline has always been a trusted and familiar one to Canadian newspaper readers," Mr. Berton (obituary, December 1, 2004) wrote in the Toronto Star in 1958. "I got to know him in Korea, and he was the toughest reporter I encountered there. He wasn't only tough physically, he was tough in other ways. He was as fiery as his red beard."
His career with the national news service was a relatively brief 14 years, but the legacy he left behind among war correspondents endured. He was among the elite of Second World War reporters, ranking alongside the likes of Ross Munro and Bill Stewart of The Canadian Press, Matthew Halton and Peter Stursberg of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Charles Lynch of Reuters.
More than just a reporter, he was a member of the Canadian News Hall of Fame and held degrees in arts and philosophy. He also spoke French, Italian, German, Dutch and Russian (along with a little Korean and Japanese), played piano and organ, composed music and occasionally conducted orchestras.
As a journalist, he worked for the Ottawa Citizen and The Times of London before serving a stint with the Canadian Army in Italy as a public-relations officer, often escorting journalists to the front.
After two years, he was "drafted" out of the army by Canadian Press chief Gil Purcell to report as a civilian on the Allied advance through Italy and northwestern Europe. He seized on the opportunity.
"As soon as the appointment was made official and I was free of army red tape, I grew a beard," he wrote years later. "My feeling was that brass hats might be interviewed by umpteen correspondents and never remember one of them. But they couldn't forget a man with a red beard."
And they didn't.
Mr. Berton said some military public-relations officers lived in terror of BOSS. "He fought like a tiger to get his copy out, and to report things as he saw them. Some high-ranking officers hated him and, on occasion, tried to have him thrown out of Korea because he wrote certain unpalatable things about the army there. But BOSS wouldn't be budged. He holds the Korean endurance record for war correspondents."
In 1951, Mr. BOSS won the National Newspaper Award for feature writing with a story recounting the travails of Canadian soldier from the time he was wounded to his repatriation to Canada. Two years later, he won a second National Newspaper Award, this time for what was then called "staff corresponding" (overseas reporting) with a series of stories from Moscow.
But one of Mr. BOSS's greatest coups is not recognized by any award or official record.
He'd just landed in Pusan, Korea, with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, and he wanted to shake his reliance on military authorities to get where he wanted to go. In short, he needed his own, independent transportation. He went to the quartermaster and said he required Scotch whisky enough for "the CP" - never exactly specifying that it was The Canadian Press, not the Command Post, that wanted the alcohol.
The quartermaster provided him with Scotch enough for an entire company. Mr. BOSS traded it for a tent, a generator, a trailer and a Jeep, which has gone down in the annals of wire-service lore as "The CP Jeep." He subsequently established what was arguably the war's first press office.
Between wars and afterward, Mr. BOSS reported from all over Europe, Africa and Asia. He worked in all of the wire service's North American bureaus, from Vancouver to New York, where he played organ in St. Patrick's Cathedral.
A self-professed lifelong bachelor, he eventually left Canadian Press to become a public-relations man himself - a sellout, according to Mr. Berton.

BELFORD, John Alexander " Jack"
Died in Oakville at Churchill Place on October 26, 2007, in his 90th year. He was born on January 16, 1918. He personally drew up this notice in order to express gratitude, especially for happiness and fulfillment in a wondrous marriage to Jeanne. Their deep, loving relationship constant for 64 years, gave them enduring joy; despite the world as it is, such marriage and their family opened up to them a meaning of life.
He is survived by his wife, whom he adored and to whom he owed so much and by the family they cherished: daughter Glen and her husband Bill HARLEY; son John and his wife Audrey; grand_son Ian THORNLEY and his wife Helena; grand_son Andrew THORNLEY and his wife Kadek; grandchildren Kristine and Steven BELFORD; and great-grandchildren Sam, Charlotte and Anna THORNLEY.
He was grateful too, for enriching fellowships at school and university and in the army, in industry, and in social relations at home and abroad. Given his age at the end, in the natural order of things, most Friends predeceased him.
Jack asked that there should be no secular or religious service. His favoured charities were Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital and his Alma Mater, McGill University.

FRAZEE, Rowland Cardwell, B.Com, C.C.
Peacefully, surrounded by his family, on July 29th, 2007 in his 87th year. Devoted husband to Marie for 58 years. Sadly missed by his son Stephen, daughter Catherine (Patricia SEELEY,) daughter-in-law Katherine, granddaughter Laura and grand_son Patrick. Survived by his younger sister Barbara THORNTON, her daughter Nan (Colin STEWARD/STEWART/STUART) and fondly remembered by his three sisters-in-law (Anita LOGIE, Kaye RANSOM and Louise LAIDLAW) and many nieces and nephews. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on May 12, 1921 to descendants of United Empire Loyalists, he grew up in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, where his father was the manager of the Royal Bank. Like so many of his generation, Rowlie FRAZEE enlisted in the Canadian Army in 1941, serving overseas with the Carelton and York Regiment, First Infantry Division. He was wounded three times, once when his cap badge deflected a scrap of German shell which otherwise might have ended his life. After the war ended, Rowlie studied at Dalhousie University (Kings College) in Halifax where he graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1948. He joined the Royal Bank that year and worked his way up through the ranks in various management positions in five different provinces. A signal that he was headed to the top came in 1973 when he was made Executive Vice President of the Royal Bank in 1977, Chief Executive Officer in 1979 and Chairman in 1980. He was often sought after to serve as director and served on many boards over the years including Royal Bank of Canada, Ganong Bros Limited, University of New Brunswick Board of Governors, Huntsman Marine Science Centre, Air Canada, Newfoundland Capital Corp, Continental Air lines, The Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Kings College Board of Governors, Home Support Services (Charlotte County, New Brunswick) and New Brunswick Investment Management Corporation. He also served as Chairman of the Business Council on National Issues, National Chair man of Junior Achievement of Canada and served three terms as Chairman of the Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission. During his career he received many awards, including honourary degrees from six universities (Acadia, Dalhousie, Kings College, Mount Allison, University of New Brunswick and York) and in 2001 was inducted into the New Brunswick Business Hall of Fame. In 1985, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada and was promoted to Companion in 1991. He proudly wore his Order of Canada lapel pin for the rest of his life. Rowlie was always proud of his Maritime heritage and he and his wife Marie enjoyed a very happy retirement in St. Andrews, New Brunswick where he worked at improving his golf game and tending to his beloved rose garden. His passionate zest for life and public spirited persona was epitomized in a 1983 biography entitled 'Big Banker with a Heart', which praised him for his work for numerous charitable and educational organizations. Rowlie FRAZEE will be remembered as a brave soldier who served his country, a respected businessman, an eloquent speaker and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Our thanks to Doctor Brian Peer, Doctor Julia Wildish and the team of Extra Mural caregivers for their kindness and dedicated professionalism. Arrangements have been entrusted to the care and direction of MacDonald Funeral Home, 20 Marks Street, St. Stephen, New Brunswick (506-466-3110) from where the first visitation will be held on Thursday afternoon from 2-4 p.m. only and then the second visitation will be held on Thursday evening at All Saints Anglican Church, 75 King Street St. Andrews, New Brunswick from 7-9 p.m. only. The funeral service will be held on Friday, August 3rd, from All Saints Anglican Church at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will immediately follow the service in the adjoining church hall. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of the donors' choice would be appreciated by the family. Condolences may be placed or this notice viewed at www.macdonaldfh.com.
