McLEAN, Glen
In loving memory of my dear husband Glen who passed away September 7, I do not need a special day To bring you to my mind
The days I do not think of you are hard to find
And no one knows the heartache
As I try to carry on
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
Your place no one can fill
I loved you dearly in death
And I love you still
- Norma

Fire victim identified
By Canadian Press, Thurs., June 21, 2007
Markham -- Tenants in an alleged illegal rooming house in this town just north of Toronto have identified the man killed in yesterday's early-morning blaze as the building's landlord.
Thirty-four-year-old Roberto VALDINI was pronounced dead on scene when firefighters carried his body out of a second-floor room of the three-level house.
Markham fire Chief Don McCLEAN said the building is currently the subject of a court fight in a dispute over its use as a multi-unit dwelling. The landlord had been in court with York Region since September 2006, facing charges of breaking the fire code in a house that was zoned to be a single-family home.

Help sought to find body
Sarnia police have charged the slaying victim's common-law husband and his sister.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Sun Media, Fri., August 10, 2007
Sarnia -- Police are urging rural landowners to search properties between Watford and Wyoming for a slain woman believed dumped in the area in the spring.
But even without the body of Shelley MATHIEU- READ, 45, Sarnia police said yesterday they had enough evidence to charge her common-law husband, Thomas MOFFIT, with second-degree murder.
MOFFIT, 36, is in custody on the charge. His sister, Kathy LONG, 54, of Wyoming, is charged with being an accessory after the fact.
"I can't get into the evidence, but there is certainly evidence&hellip to determine Shelley MATHIEU- READ has met a violent death," Sgt. Scott MacLEAN said at a news conference yesterday.
MATHIEU- READ, formerly of London, and MOFFIT, her partner of about six months, have a "history of domestic violence," he said.
MacLEAN said police believe there was a "domestic disturbance" in mid-May and MATHIEU- READ was killed.
Police have a daunting task in the search for MATHIEU- READ's body. They think she was dumped in mid-May, when the terrain, now blanketed by tall cornfields and overgrowing bush, was sparse.
More than 20 officers from Sarnia police searched a 39-hectare woodlot in the area yesterday.
"That's just one small sample of the area we're searching," MacLEAN said. Earlier in the week, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police assisted Sarnia police in a search on Churchill Line between Wyoming and Watford.
"It really is overwhelming. The landowners know their properties better than anyone, so we are asking for their assistance," MacLEAN said.
"We are looking for any signs of disturbances on their property tire tracks or areas that may have been disturbed as a possible gravesite."
MATHIEU- READ, a mother and grandmother known as a heavy drug user, was last seen by a neighbour on May 10, police said.
"Shelley was a sibling, a mother and a grandmother," said MacLEAN. "She struggled her whole life with drug addiction, but she kept in contact with her family. She was a very loved person."
MATHIEU- READ's daughter, Robin HARDMAN of Saint Thomas, reported her missing on July 29. HARDMAN hadn't seen her mother since May.
MATHIEU- READ moved to Sarnia from London in March. She and MOFFIT moved into a Finch Street apartment building in a well-kept complex.
Though MATHIEU- READ's daughter has said her mom moved to Sarnia to get "clean," neighbours in the 10-storey apartment building said yesterday both she and MOFFIT were known drinkers and drug users.
"We would hear them fighting all the time," said a woman who lives next to MOFFIT's apartment on the building's fourth floor.
The neighbour said MATHIEU- READ had been there only a short time when the two women shared an elevator.
"She was holding a PlayStation, and she had a book bag on her back, and she was bawling," the neighbour said.
In the elevator, MATHIEU- READ said she was sick of her boyfriend's drinking.
"She was crying and she said, 'I'm so lonely, I'm from London and I don't know anybody around here,' " said the neighbour, who asked not to be named.
After that, the woman said, another woman seemed to be living with MOFFIT, who remained in his apartment until last week.
Police said MOFFIT had once been charged with assaulting MATHIEU- READ but she didn't appear in court and the charge was dropped.
MOFFIT is known to Lambton Ontario Provincial Police, said spokesperson Const. John REURINK.
"We did investigate a sudden death where he was involved in the relationship with the deceased, but it was deemed that no foul play was suspected," REURINK said.
He said that case could be reopened if there were enough similarities to the MATHIEU- READ slaying.
How To Help Police
- Police believe a black 4X4 Ford F250 was used to to dump Shelley MATHIEU- READ's body somewhere off Churchill Line between Wyoming and Watford. They ask Churchill Line landowners in southeast Lambton County and western Middlesex County between Wyoming and Watford to check their properties.
- They also ask anyone who saw the truck to call Sarnia police at 519-344-8861 ext. 6077 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Generous volunteer skimped on sleep
By Claire NEARY, Sun Media, Sun., December 23, 2007
It took Bill FARQUHAR a while to figure out how his mother Beatrice managed to pack countless hours of volunteering into her days and still maintain an impeccably organized household.
"She got about four hours' sleep every night," the Saint Thomas man said.
"Our neighbours always noticed that the lights in our house were never off and the driveway was always full of cars belonging to our Friends and family."
Beatrice Viola FARQUHAR, 89, died December 6 of complications from colon cancer at her home at Elgin Manor in Saint Thomas.
Born in Belmont, FARQUHAR was a farm girl and lifelong volunteer who loved horses, children, music, family and giving back to her community.
She played the steel guitar and loved spending time with her four grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
"My mother never had a cross word for anyone," Bill FARQUHAR recalled. "Everyone liked her, and no matter how busy she was, she always had time for family."
Beatrice started training to be a nurse during the Second World War, but the war ended before she was set to leave.
She kept up her first aid skills and later worked her way up through the ranks of Saint_John Ambulance, where she taught police officers.
"She was always tying us up in slings and splints to practise," her son said.
"And her life-sized cardio-pulmonary resuscitation doll, named 'Resusci-Annie,' led to a pretty funny incident when she was stopped by a police officer who noticed the realistic-looking doll in the trunk."
Bea was active in a host of community groups, including Knox Presbyterian Church, Belmont Monta Rebekah Lodge, the Liberal Association and Mackenzie King Club, the Alzheimer Society, the Women's Missionary Society, the Willing Workers Society and Neighbourhood Watch.
She was the first woman inspector at the Somerville box factory in London.
"She was always impeccably dressed, with her hair done -- even when she was sick -- and she always did everyone's hair in the neighbourhood for free," daughter Viola McLEAN of Port Stanley said.
Bill and Viola said they'll always remember how their mother was non-judgmental and accepting of everyone.
"When we were kids we were allowed to bring anybody home," Viola said. "She was such a good listener and she loved spending time with her Tim Hortons gang of ladies in Saint Thomas."
"She was very organized and very happy. The only thing she didn't like was missing out on time with family."
FARQUHAR was predeceased by her husband Charles John FARQUHAR.

SCHULTZ, Margaret " Marg" Agnes (née McLEAN)
(August 16, 1913-August 4, 2007)
On Saturday, August 4, 2007, my mother, Marg, died with her family by her side at The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg at the age of 93 years after putting her last piece of chocolate to rest.
Remaining to forever cherish Marg's memory are her daughter Peggy of Toronto; sister Leila (Lee) McDONALD of Winnipeg; niece Barbara KEHLER (Joseph) of Cartier, Manitoba; as well as many relatives, Friends and extended family across Canada who brought joy to Marg's life. She was predeceased by her parents Douglas and Leila McLEAN; husband Carl William SCHULTZ (F/O, DFC, Royal Canadian Air Force No. 77 Squadron) in 1956; brothers Robert Douglas McLEAN of Winnipeg (1973), John (Jack) Gordon of Ottawa (2004).
Born, raised and educated in Winnipeg, Marg graduated from Kelvin High School in 1929 and began her career at the Hudson Bay Co. She became buyer of women's millinery and later lingerie taking her to the Calgary store during the Second World War. Marg and Carl were married in Calgary as the war ended and returned to Winnipeg.
Daughter Peggy was born in 1949 and the family (with Carl's mother, Sophia) moved to Morden, Manitoba. For 5 years Marg worked with the finance department of Bruins Ford dealership. Active in the community, including Ladies Auxiliary, Canadian Branch No. 11 Legion, she made many lifetime Friendships.
1954 saw the family back in Winnipeg, as Marg joined Winnipeg Motor Products (later to become Park Pontiac Buick). Two years later, the world as Marg and her daughter knew it, changed with the sudden death of Carl. As a single mother, she became credit manager of Winnipeg Motors and began active involvement in the wider credit world.
In 1975 Marg became the first female president, in its 40 year history, of Credit Grantors Association of Canada. She was an Associate of the Canadian Credit Institute and held all offices, including president of Credit Women's International.
A credit manager with a heart for those whose circumstances made it hard to manage Marg's humour and smiling face influenced people from all walks of life. "Maggie" could make a story out of any life event!
"Retiring" in 1978, Marg soon took on part time employment with the Credit Bureau until well into her 70's. She was active in Winnipeg Council of Women, Manitoba Society of Seniors, Saint_John's Resource Centre, Sons of Scotland (Lord Selkirk 205). She continued to participate in credit conferences across Canada.
This last decade has seen Marg struggle to retain her sense of control as dementia and diminished eyesight challenged her daily life. She kept going long after it seemed she could not. Her own strength and spirit have been supported by care and devotion of staff and volunteers during Marg's last 8 years at The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. Thank you to them and to the companions who have added to Marg's quality of life.
In compliance with Marg's wishes, no formal funeral service will be held. A service of remembrance will be held at a later date. Marg will be buried with Carl in Brookside Cemetery.
Those wishing to honour Marg's memory may do so by making a donation to The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg, 276 Hugo Street N., Winnipeg, Manitoba R3M 2N6.

GOETZ, Peter Henry (1917-2007)
Beloved dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, passed away on Tuesday, August 28, 2007 just shy of his 90th birthday. He was born on September 8, 1917, in Slavgorod, Russia, where he was raised on a collective farm by his parents, Henry and Justina. He immigrated to Canada in 1929 along with his parents and his brother Henry. His baby brother Siegfried was born during the ocean voyage to Quebec City. The family then settled in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Peter attended Kitchener Collegiate Institute where he met his future wife, Helena WARKENTIN. In his thirties, Peter pursued an accounting career with B.F. Goodrich. He was, however, an avid sportsman, becoming recognized as a 'scratch' golfer at the Westmount Golf and Country Club. His passion for the arts eventually eclipsed his interest in sports. By attending Saturday morning classes at Waterloo College, now Wilfred Laurier University and joining the Kitchener-Waterloo Society of Artists in 1946, Peter developed his artistic skills. He also added a daughter Jean Margot to the family in 1946 and a son, Peter Andrew in 1949. Peter was elected to the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour in 1960 and the Ontario Society of Artists in 1963. Exhibitions include the National Gallery, Ottawa; the Rotunda Gallery, London, England; La Scala Gallery, Florence, Italy the Galleria International, New York City and the Art Gallery of Ontario. During his seventy plus years as a respected Kitchener-Waterloo Artist he received numerous rewards and accolades and was a respected member of the community. His work is in the collection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the City of Waterloo, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, the London Regional Art Gallery, the National Club in Toronto, the Universities of Guelph, Waterloo and Wilfred Laurier and many, many private homes. Peter was predeceased by his parents, his brother Henry and his wife Helena. He is survived by his daughter Jean (David) HOOVER, his son Peter (Louella) GOETZ and his brother Siegfried (Corinne) GOETZ. He will be greatly missed by his long time friend and companion Dora Melville STEPHENS. He is also survived by his grandchildren Jennifer (Garry) MacLEAN, Oliver (Alpena) HOOVER and Travis HOOVER, as well as his great-grandchildren Megan and Lyssa MacLEAN and Alexander and Stephan HOOVER. There are many nieces and nephews. A viewing will be held at the Erb and Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo, on Friday from 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 78 John St. W., Waterloo, Saturday, September 1, 2007 11 a.m. Interment will follow at the Parkview Cemetery. If Friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made to Redeemer Lutheran Church, Canadian Cancer Society or the Lung Association, all of which he supported and these can be arranged through the funeral home, 519-745-8445 or www.erbgood.com.

PAVANEL, Charles " Charlie" (1925-2007)
Charles PAVANEL, who died Saturday, November 17, 2007 at the age of 82, enjoyed every opportunity life afforded him. 'You only go through this world once,' he said, 'so you've got to have a good time.' For Charlie, a good time meant standing by his family and Friends through thick and thin, living large at social gatherings, sharing a joke or handful of cash with strangers in need, and excelling at sports and in business. A no-nonsense competitor and unafraid to take chances, Charlie commanded the respect and affection of many who met him on the field and in the boardroom. Born in 1925 in Cooksville to Carlo and Elena PAVANEL, who had emigrated from Treviso, Italy, Charles was the youngest of seven children. From the age of nine he was drawn time and again to the Credit Valley Golf Course, where he learned the game first as a caddie and later as a talented and dedicated player. He also showed great skill as a running back for the Port Credit High School football team. It was at high school that he met his future wife, Mary McDERMOTT, who was a member of the cheerleading squad. They were married on April 28, 1951, in a small ceremony at the Port Credit Presbyterian Church, and went on to have five children. During the Second World War, Charlie served in the Navy. He graduated in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto in 1951. Right out of school he was hired by B.F. Goodrich to work in Waterloo as part of the Chemical Division's sales team, and some time later became one of the firm's leading managers. After settling in he joined Rockway Golf Club and later Westmount Golf and Country Club, where he laid low the competition for more than three decades, both on the golf course and, for several years, the curling rink. A 3-handicapper - with a best score of 69 on par 72 - Charlie took great pleasure in playing many of the top courses in the world, and always appreciated the game for opening innumerable doors both in business and Friendship. He was also a member of the KW Racquet Club in Kitchener, the Mississauga Golf Club, the Tournament Players Club in Dearborn, Michigan, and the Vines Golf Club in Fort Myers, Florida. He also belonged to the local Gyro Club. In 1974, Charlie enjoyed immediate success with the founding of Genesta Manufacturing, which was begun with the help of Mary, who ran the office out of their dining room for the first year. Hematite Manufacturing was added in 1978, and in 1987, Genesta, Hematite and other interests became Pavaco Plastics Inc. Under Charlie's leadership, the company garnered several awards, and introduced many industry firsts in the lighting and automotive sectors. Charlie was devastated following the death of Mary on May 7, 1986, but a year later had the good fortune to meet Vivian McLEAN, and after 12 happy years they were married on July 13, 2000. Charles is survived by Vivian, his children Ellen, John, Jane and Joanne (Alex predeceased him on December 20, 2006), and their spouses Wendy, Clare, Sami, Mark and Mike; his grandchildren Adam, Leah, Kate, Evan, Hailie, Charlie, Nicholas, Hannah, May, Jack, Liam, Maddie, Callum, Hannah, Amy and Elizabeth; his brother and sister-in-law Bruni and Marie, and his sister-in-law Mary KAY. Charles is missed by Vivian's children, Wendy, Susan, Gary, and Patrick. He is lovingly remembered for being a generous and upright father, a fun-loving uncle, an excellent companion to his Friends, and a good provider for all who were fortunate to enjoy the charm and embrace of his company. A memorial celebration of Charles' life will be held at Del Dente's at The Charcoal Steakhouse, 2980 King St. E. Kitchener on Sunday, December 2, 2007 from 1-4 p.m. A private family service at Charles's residence was officiated by Rev. Walter McLEAN.

WALKER, Olwen (née OWEN)
Of Avondale Road, Rosedale, Toronto; The Cabin at Claremont, Ontario; and Park House, Isle of Mull, Scotland, beloved wife of 63 years of the late James Woods WALKER, OBE, Q.C. Born Wychwood Park, Toronto, November 14th, 1912 to Professor Eric Trevor OWEN of Trinity College, Toronto and Elsie Una MacLEAN of the Isle of Mull. Died peacefully at Belmont House December 6th, 2007. Olwen was a shining example to her niece, Daphne (Miller) BEAUROY, nephews Iain (her Godson) and the late Keith MILLER Eric, Ronald, Trevor, the late Kenneth, and Gerald OWEN, niece Meredith STANFORD née OWEN, Daphne's children Fabienne, Stéphane, Muriel and David BEAUROY and grandnieces Rachel BEAUROY and Lucy BEAUROY. Olwens brothers Trevor and Ivon OWEN, and on the WALKER side, Hugh, Gordon, Hilary and Mary WALKER, Leonard and Douglas GILDAY, their children and families and the many Friends and admirers throughout the world will never forget her clear purpose, her sense of decorum, her generosity of hand and heart, her forthrightness, her joy in everything. She strove for perfection in all she was and did, and expected the same in return. Her warm benevolence and hospitality illuminated many lives. Devoted to her husband, she shared with him a love of nature translated into their life work: reforesting whole tracts of their land on the Oakridges Moraine.
Interment at the Walker plot, Mt. Pleasant Cemetery on December 15th at twelve noon, followed by Anglican service at the Belmont House chapel and a lunch reception in the Solarium at 1 p.m.
Olwen supported Belmont House with her husband as a donor. She worked there as a volunteer, and since 1996 it has been her home. Our thanks to the staff, to Doctor BIRMINGHAM, and to dear Angela SMART, Olwen's private nurse-companion, true friend and carer in her final years.
To remember Olwen and Jim WALKER, please plant a tree in their name, or give to a charity of your choosing.
