HARTLEY, Strachan, B.Sc., M.Sc., M.D.
After a courageous 21 months, Strachan lost his battle against Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma July 5th, 2007 at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. Prior to his illness, he experienced short but unfettered joy as an M.D. pursuing his orthopedic surgery residency at McGill. Strachan is survived by his devoted wife Doctor Chloe ROUMAIN, proud parents Mary Ann and Michael, and loving siblings Aimee-Noel, Wyatt and Blythe. Sharing their daughter's loss are parents-in-law Pierre YVES and Françoise ROUMAIN of Haiti and sister Stephanie READ and family in Miami. While his Uncle Peter HARTLEY, Aunt Catherine LOUVET and cousins Camille and Lauren feel a particularly strong loss as they acted as his surrogate family during his 7.5 years in Montreal, their grief is shared equally with his Uncles and Aunts Ian and Mary-Louise and Susan HARTLEY, Glenn and Margaret MUNRO, Jim MUNRO and Margaret DRAGU and cousins Megan, Brian, Scott, Kim, Josh and Aretha. He was predeceased by his grandparents Herb and Simone HARTLEY and Ralph and Isabelle MUNRO of Toronto. During his 30 years, Strachan left a powerful legacy of Friendship, sport and scholarship in Edmonton, Vancouver and Montreal. His captaincy of the 1997 Vanier Cup Champion University of British Columbia Thunderbirds football team and subsequently of the McGill Redmen football team are testament to his leadership and commitment to others. Earning All-Star status in both leagues, 5-time Academic All-Canadian Honours, the Russ Jackson Award as the top community, academic and athletic achiever in the Province of Quebec and twice bestowed with the prestigious Canadian Interuniversity Sports Award as one of the Top 8 most outstanding academic, leadership and athletic performers in Canadian sports are tributes of his tremendous work ethic and strength of character. His successful completion of medical school while battling cancer speaks to the bravery and determination of this truly remarkable man who wanted to make a difference in this world. But most of all, Strachan will be remembered for his warm sense of humor, compassion and integrity. All who knew him cannot wonder what might have been. Why, when he had so much to give, was he taken from us? Sleep in peace wonderful Prince. We will carry you always in our hearts. The family wishes to acknowledge all the amazing Friends and community members who supported Strachan during his life and illness. Your overwhelming caring and compassion touched him and the family deeply and helped soothe his burden. In lieu of flowers, the Hartleys have requested that Friends honour Strachan's memory through the Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation. The Legacy Foundation is designed to further Strachan's life goal of making a difference in the world. All donations will receive a tax deductible receipt. Please make cheques payable to the Tides Foundation c/o Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation 468 Arbutus Ave. Duncan, British Columbia V9L 5X6

THEOBALD, Elsie Mary
Daughter, sister, schoolteacher. Born June 15, 1910, in Toronto. Died of old age May 16 in Montreal, aged 96.
By Susan DRAIN, Page L6
Elsie THEOBALD was the last of her family. Her parents emigrated from England in the early years of the last century; their infant son died shortly after their arrival. Elsie was Canadian-born, as was her sister Alice, five years younger. Neither sister married.
Work with the railway took the family to Quebec City. Elsie and Alice were bright girls, brought up to be both ladylike and independent, and with a strong sense of duty. At 19, Elsie was teaching in Levis, Quebec
Their father died of pneumonia on Alice's 21st birthday. From then until her death in 1955, their mother lived with Elsie in Aylmer, Quebec Their lives were centred on school and church: Hundreds of "bazaar novelties" flew from Elsie's needles and onto church sale tables. She taught in Hull, read Heidi to her Grade 6 classes, and sometimes spent the weekend in bed, felled by one of her migraines.
She read Dickens almost as faithfully as the Bible. She worried that she had got too good a bargain out of her life membership in the Faversham Society, and in recent years sent cheques to cover postage. She was punctilious in such matters: Her horror of debt was part of her independence.
Although she eventually moved to Montreal to be near her sister, it was on her own terms, in her own apartment.
When Alice became infirm, Elsie wore herself out in her care, taking the bus everywhere to do the shopping and banking for two. When the sisters moved into a nursing home, Elsie whispered to my mother, with evident relief: "No more shopping."
Still she fretted over Alice, and when Alice died two years ago, we thought she might follow. But she surprised us - for the first time since she was 5, she was free of responsibility.
Her expectations were few. She enjoyed her newspaper, especially the crossword puzzle and the business pages. She went to bingo and trivia games, and won every round. They put a limit on the number of prizes she could claim. It wasn't quite fair to the others, she admitted, because "they don't have all their marbles."
She had strong opinions, and she was known to take umbrage when someone crossed her over, say, church sale arrangements. She was used to her own way.
I am not sure that she would have been pleased to be written about in a newspaper. When they summoned me to her bedside, she greeted me by name and asked if I'd had my supper. Then she gave me instructions about one or two treasures, and told me she wanted to die. After that night, she said almost nothing more. Except a day or two before she died, as I was reading evensong to her, faintly, but steadily, her voice joined in the Lord's Prayer.
Susan DRAIN is Elsie's first cousin once removed.
