GRANT, Doreen Violet (née COWAN) (February 21, 1924-June 3, 2007)
In her 84th year, as a result of a debilitating stroke, Doreen passed away surrounded by her family and under the compassionate care of the staff at Sunnybrook Hospital. Even though she was paralyzed and without speech, Doreen was able to communicate expressions of her love to the members of her family and Friends at her bedside with a smile and a squeeze of the hand. She was predeceased in 1983 by her husband of over 40 years, William (Bill) A. GRANT, an executive of Philips Electronics. She leaves behind her family: daughter Margaret, daughter Karen (Larry JACKSON,) daughter-in-law Carol GRANT and son Hugh (Sheri PURCELL.) She is lovingly remembered by her four grandchildren, Scott (Liz PLATTS), Tracey (Dave PENDER), Joni BRUNTON (Andrew LAMORE), and Kate JACKSON; and one great-grandchild, Jessica MacDONALD and many beloved nieces and nephews. Her two remaining brothers, Bert COWAN (Sue) of Vancouver and George COWAN (Lena) of Port Colborne also mourn her passing. She is predeceased by her siblings: Het NURSE, Boyd COWAN and Mary JOHNSON. Doreen remained vigorous, vibrant and independent until her stroke. She lived in her own home, carefully tended her own gardens and played bridge with a number of groups. 'Granny' was a welcome and active participant in the lives of her children and their families. The day of the stroke she was taking pleasure in the warm spring sun from her seat on the front porch swing of her home. Through her life Doreen was an active force in everything in which she became involved. Through the fifties and sixties, summers at the 'Lake of Two Rivers' cottage meant all the Algonquin Park staff knew her by name. She was also active in the Progressive Conservative Party at both the federal and provincial levels, participating in many election and leadership campaigns. Following cremation, a visitation will be held at the Pine Hills Visitation, Chapel and Reception Centre, 625 Birchmount Road, Toronto (416-267-8229) on Sunday, June 10, 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Memorial Celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation or Sunnybrook Health Science Centre.

PURDY, John Winston
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Doctor John Winston PURDY. John died peacefully on Thursday, December 28, 2006, at his daughter Anna's home in Calgary, surrounded by those who loved him dearly. He will be remembered with joy for his magnificent mind, his love of beauty and his passion for life. John, a West Side boy, was raised and completed high school in Saint John, New Brunswick. He studied physics at the University of New Brunswick, where he received a Bachelor of Science with honours. He went on to the University of Toronto, where he obtained both a Masters degree and a PhD in geophysics. It was in Toronto that he met his great love, Carolyn. Together they embarked on a life of adventure. John and Carolyn began their life together in Berne, Switzerland where they had their two daughters, Sarah and Anna. They moved on to England where John was a professor of geophysics at the University of Liverpool. John found his true calling upon returning to Canada to study medicine at Dalhousie University. Known as 'the refugee' from the geriatrics ward, he was greatly admired and respected by all of his colleagues. He had a thriving family practice in Fredericton, New Brunswick. He subsequently specialized in ophthalmology in Fredericton for 20 years, developing a practice of devoted patients for whom he cared greatly. His patients were grateful for his competent gentle manner. John served his community as a member of the York-Sunbury-Queens Medical Society, the New Brunswick Medical Association, and numerous government committees. John had many passions through his life. He used his beautiful, inquisitive mind to explore the mysteries of nature, the joy of music, and the wonders of science. John was predeceased by his parents, George and Ethel PURDY, his brother Judson PURDY and his daughter Sarah. He leaves his wife Carolyn, daughter Anna, son-in-law Peter, grandchildren John Winston and Keziah, and nephew Sean. They will always miss him, love him and honour his memory as a man who loved deeply, selflessly and wholly. There will be no visitation. The funeral service will be held on Friday, January 5, 2007 at Christ Church Cathedral, Fredericton, at 2: 00 p.m. with The Very Rev. Keith Joyce officiating.

BLACK, Kenneth James
Died on August 11, 2007 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto from complications following pneumonia. Loving husband of Mary, who predeceased him in 1976, a devoted father to Amy and grandfather to Theo BROOKE, born August 2006; he was adored by Amy, Theo and son-in-law Stephen BROOKE. His sister-in-law Marjorie BLACK, nieces and nephew Cathy, Diane and Norm BLACK, great-nephew Gregory BLACK and great-niece Jacqueline BLACK, cousins Michel JONES, Stephen and Stuart THURSBY, Wendy and Bill KREVER, and Natalie COYLE were all dear members of his family in Ontario. He will be greatly missed by all his family from Winnipeg: brother-in-law Alfred KAYE, nephews and nieces John, Kathie, Gordon and Jeanne KAYE; great-nieces and great-nephews Liz, Cameron, Donna, Michael, and Michele KAYE, Michael PURVES- SMITH and Robert POHL. Ken was also a dear and caring uncle to niece Nicola IVANOVIC, nephews David and Neil CHAPMAN, great-nieces Natasha and Isabella IVANOVIC and Jessica CHAPMAN, all of Merseyside, England; he was a cherished brother-in-law to Rosemarie CHAPMAN and Dennis CHAPMAN, also of Merseyside. He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth, and brothers Ralph and Arthur, and by his nieces Jacqueline BLACK and Margaret KAYE. Ken's strong sense of loyalty and fun animated a wide circle of Friends in Canada and in England over his entire life.
Ken was born in Winnipeg on May 10, 1924, the youngest of Norman and Margaret BLACK's four children. He attended the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy in corvettes during the Second World War. After the war, he became a journalist, first working at the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Tribune then spending time in Europe and England for Reuters. In 2006, he published a memoir of his adventures during and after the war entitled Telling It Like It Was. He joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1957 where he worked, in both radio and television, for over 35 years, in London, England, Saint John's, Newfoundland and Toronto. After his retirement he dedicated himself to his many interests, including travelling, writing, neighbourhood activism, birdwatching and his legendary annual Victoria Day Party.
Ken brought an unrivalled joy to life and touched everyone he met with this enthusiasm and with his charm and humour. He was a true gentleman, but with a wry and sometimes mischievous outlook. Ken had the gift of treating everyone with the same gracious manner. As the countless guests to his house will attest, he was the soul of hospitality. He was as happy playing with children as entertaining adults and will be remembered by a number of generations as the delightful and engaged grown-up always ready with wind-up toys, kites, stories and songs. His interests were eclectic, but they were bound together by an unceasing curiosity and energy. Ken was the cherished heart of a number of social worlds and families. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August, 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street (one block east of Parliament, just south of King Street East, Toronto). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken's memory to the Bruce Trail Association.

And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea.
