She was involved in The Victorian Order of Nurses, Third Oshawa Brownies and Guides, University Women's Club (charter member), and St Andrew's United Church. Travelling, reading, cottage life, gardening, playing bridge and piano brought Flora great delight, but the greatest joy came from close Friends and her beloved family- her grandmothers, parents, aunts, uncles, thirty-nine first cousins, brothers Bruce and Stewart, and their families: Mary McROBERTS, Pam McROBERTS and Neil, Alanna and Brynn OSTVIK, Bob and Susanne, Corey, and Patrick McROBERTS, Donald, Christine, and Mark McROBERTS, Cecil SPROULE, Jim and Marylyn SPROULE, John and Wiebke, Haldon, Dana, and Kelsey SPROULE, Debi SPROULE and George, Taryn, and Breanne SCOTT, Dorcas FULTON and Donald, Nick and Tony MORRISH.
Great thanks to Sheryl WINACOTT, Jan MADSEN, and the teams at Hillsdale Estates for their compassionate care, conversation and laughter. Thanks to Flora's dear neighbours on Primrose Path and to their families for their cheer. You all made a caring community for Flora and her family.
A celebration of Flora's life will be included in a memorial service in the Worship Centre of Hillsdale Estates, Oshawa, on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. Interment has taken place.

Motorists' flash of anger ignites a fatal confrontation
By Sarah BOESVELD, Page A1
It was all over in a minute.
In a crash that police say was fuelled by a split-second fit of road rage, a man was killed yesterday when he was ejected from his black sport utility vehicle after a dramatic showdown with another driver in the eastbound lanes of a busy Ontario highway.
The early-morning crash caused five hours of traffic headaches for thousands of commuters heading eastbound on Highway 401 outside the town of Milton, just west of Toronto, and shined a spotlight on the dangers of driving while raging.
By late yesterday, police had arrested a man and charged him with criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving and failure to remain and assist at the scene of a collision.
Reached last night, the mother of the arrested man said she knew police were looking for her son when she heard about the crash through the news media.
"Right away, I knew who it was. The time, the place, the colour of the car and the make of the car," she said. Her other son was also in the car. Both men were heading to work in Mississauga at the time of the crash.
"It's like a nightmare," their mother said. "I can't believe it, I can't believe it."
From eyewitness reports, police gave a detailed account of events leading up to the crash.
A 55-year-old man was heading to work from his Milton home. He was driving north on James Snow Parkway when, at 5: 16 a.m., a maroon Pontiac Grand Prix pulled up beside him.
While police don't know what precipitated it, they allege the two drivers began a duel of sorts, jockeying to be the first on the Highway 401 ramp ahead. They accelerated "at a high rate of speed" toward the on-ramp, said Staff Sergeant Dennis MAHONEY- BRUER of the Ontario Provincial Police Port Credit division.
The man driving the sport utility vehicle managed to surge ahead and merge into the centre lane, but the Pontiac driver wasn't conceding defeat: He accelerated and cut in front of the sport utility vehicle, then slammed on the brakes - a classic road-rage manoeuvre, police say.
To avoid rear-ending the Pontiac, the sport utility vehicle driver swerved to the left and lost control, smashing into the cement median and rolling at least three times, police said. The sport utility vehicle bounced about 300 metres until it landed upright. The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the vehicle; he landed about four metres away, police said.
The time was 5: 17 a.m.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not released his name at the request of the family. [He was later identified as Tony GRECO.]
Although police do not often write "road rage" into their collision reports, Kenford Nedd, a stress specialist based at the Western Medical Centre in Vancouver, said most crashes can be directly linked to stress. He also sees an increasing number of patients admitting to their road rage.
When a driver's blood boils after being cut off on the road, a muscle stimulation prompts the hypothalamus to secrete cortisol, a hormone offering a natural high, Doctor Nedd said.
"When the impulses go to the hypothalamus, you can get a sense of euphoria, a sense that you're not responsible, you can almost do anything, there's a lack of control," he said.
But regaining control can take "just nanoseconds," he added. It can be as easy as taking a deep breath. "We need to learn to respond to situations rather than to react like we're wind-up toys ready to be released when any twig falls."
In the Highway 401 case, Staff Sgt. MAHONEY- BRUER said old-fashioned common courtesy could have prevented the crash.
"It's hard to be angry at somebody that waves a hand and says sorry, but when you get two hotheads together, that really precipitates the problem," he said. He said the crash is also an example that the public isn't getting the message about the life-saving benefit of wearing a seatbelt.
Wayne WINSOR, 39, of Milton, turned himself in to the local collision reporting centre at 2: 40 p.m. yesterday. Ontario Provincial Police officers picked him up and brought him to their Port Credit detachment for questioning.
He is scheduled to appear in court this morning.

JOCIUS, Gintarius " Ginty" Frank (1946-2008)
Gintarius (Ginty) Frank JOCIUS lost his two-year battle with brain cancer on January 2, 2008. Ginty passed away at home, surrounded by family and hospice care. Born in post-war Germany on August 15, 1946 of Lithuanian parents who had fled their Baltic homeland in 1944, Ginty's family immigrated to Canada in 1949, settling in Rodney, Ontario where they eventually started greenhouse and tobacco farming near the shores of Lake Erie. Ginty is predeceased by his father, Frank, and his brother, Ronald. He is survived by his mother, Martha (née POVILAITIS,) and brother Peter and his family. Ginty graduated from the Ontario Agricultural College, University of Guelph, in 1970 and married Lorie MUNCE of Leamington, Ontario that same year. They have three children: Daiva JOCIUS of Calgary, Alberta; Gavin JOCIUS and wife Hannah of Durham, North Carolina; and Jordan JOCIUS and partner Julie BRUIN of Guelph. Ginty's passion was always agriculture. He mentored under George Atkins at C.B.C. Radio Noon and then served as Executive Assistant for two Ontario Ministers of Agriculture and Food, the late William A. Stewart and the late William Newman. After leaving the Ministry in 1978, Ginty worked in the cattle industry, helping to launch the first-ever video auction, the Ontario Beef Exchange. In 1982, he established his own marketing/communications firm, Ginty Jocius and associates, in Guelph, specializing in agricultural products and services across North America. Ginty was always looking for the 'next big idea.' In addition to helping launch Strategic Research Associates now headquartered in at the Research Park in Guelph, he helped initiate the internet company, Agribiz.net, which eventually morphed into Farms.com In 1994, Ginty diversified further into event management by creating Canada's Outdoor Farm Show. Now in its 15th year and held annually in September at Canada's Outdoor Park in Woodstock, Ontario, it is the largest outdoor agricultural tradeshow in Canada. In June of 2004, the Great Canadian Outdoor Expo was created in celebration of Ginty's other passions - family and the great out-of-doors. A self-proclaimed entrepreneur, Ginty was just as deeply committed to 'service above self.' He was a member of the Guelph Rotary Club for almost 25 years, intimately involved in fundraising events such as 'Gift of Wings' and Dream Home projects, and was recently recognized as an Honorary Paul Harris Fellow. In 1995, he was named Agri-Marketer of the Year by the Canadian AgriMarketing Association and Alumnus of Honour by the University of Guelph in 1996. Ginty was a tireless campaigner in the political arenas, at both the federal and local levels. He was past Chair of the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario (A.R.I.O.) and the Ontario Agricultural College (O.A.C.) Alumni Foundation; a contributor to the formation of the Enroot Foundation established by the Ontario Institute of Agrologists and a strong supporter of the arts in Guelph. A memorial service celebrating Ginty's life will be held at the River Run Centre at 35 Woolwich Street in Guelph on Friday, January 11, 2008 at 2: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations to be made to The Ginty Jocius Journey of Growth Fund at the Ontario Agricultural College/ University of Guelph; the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada; or Hospice Wellington.
