(February 7, 1936-March 6, 2008)
An intrepid traveler, Arnold set off on his final journey on Thursday, March 6, 2008… after an heroic, brief battle with cancer. Having just celebrated his 72nd birthday, Arnold did not go 'quietly into that good night,' rather he fought against the cancer with the same determination and spirit that he had applied to every aspect of his colorful life. His beloved wife Tania and his children were at his side at the Foothills Country Hospice in Okotoks, Alberta. Arnold will be missed by his devoted wife Tania, daughters Shauna (Gordon) KOPPANG and Erin (Brian) WILLUMSEN, son Ian (Debbie) and granddaughters Amy and Laura, niece Susan (Dave), nephew John (Lisa), grand-nephews Michael, Scot, Lucas and niece Nicola, mother-in-law Anne MURENKO (Paul,) brother-in-law Igor (Peggy,) sister-in-law Lucie (Joe) nieces and nephews Jessica, Vanessa, Christopher and Andrew.

After selling the firm in 1989, he started up Willumsen Ventures Inc. specializing in forensic engineering, namely structural failures. Early in his career in construction, he became concerned about the welfare of employees and was instrumental in starting the first health, welfare and pension trust funds for the construction related industry unions in Alberta and parts of Western Canada, along with Funds Administrative Services, a firm providing administration of these plans to the Laborer's of Western Canada, Electrical Workers of Alberta, Bricklayers, Carpenters.

He served as Chair of the Calgary General Contractors Association, Canadian Board of the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans, The Calgary Firefighters Supplementary Pension Plan and numerous boards of trustees over a forty year period. In his spare time, he had a passion for nature mountaineering, motorcycles, handball, photography and farming. In recent years, he became a serious photographer exhibiting and selling his landscapes.

WILSON, John Elwin
John Elwin WILSON passed away in his sleep on Wednesday, February 13, 2008 at the Shelburne Nursing Home. Elwin was born in Melancthon Township on May 21, 1928. He was the second son of George and Florence (PALLISTER) WILSON. He was predeceased by his two brothers Mervyn and Everett. Elwin grew up on the family farm and got his education at Maybourne School.
Elwin married June (ACHESON) WILSON on Wednesday, June 27, 1951, the 33rd Wedding Anniversary of June's parents Stanley and Olive (McMILLAN) ACHESON. Their marriage took place at Bethel United Church.
Elwin began a career of trucking gravel in the cities of Brampton and Toronto shortly after their marriage and continued that career for 46 years until his retirement at the age of 71.
Elwin and June were the parents of Cathy WILSON, Nancy (WILSON) KEATING, Lisa (WILSON) LANGERAAP and Phillip WILSON. Elwin is predeceased by his daughters Cathy and Nancy, who both passed away from Leukemia.
After raising their children in Dundalk, Elwin and June built their home on property adjacent to the family farm where June was raised on the West Backline. They resided there for fifteen years, before moving into a new home in Dundalk in 2002. Elwin had a great interest and involvement in the betterment of his community. He was President of the Dundalk Service Club and when his health failed and he was no longer as active as he would like to have been, he was appointed the first Honorary Usher for Dundalk United Church.
Elwin took great pride and interest in his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and their great-grandchildren and their activities. He loved to watch hockey games, figure skating, attend baptisms, weddings and graduation ceremonies for his grandchildren. He Will be very much missed by them.
Elwin's failing health forced him to spend numerous periods of time in Markdale Hospital due to complications from diabetes and hip surgery. It was troubling for his family to come to the realization that his care should be specialized and Elwin became a resident at Shelburne Nursing Home for the past three years. The onset of Alzheimer's disease may have robbed him of his memory, but it never took away his sense of humour. As aptly described by his nephew Ted ACHESON, " His last few years were more like living in a waiting room to eternity. All believers can take comfort that he is now with his Lord and Saviour just as it has been foretold."
A Celebration of Elwin's life was held on February 16, 2098 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk. Dundalk United Church minister; Rev. Janet Eriksen and organist Mary Nicholls participated in the service. Nephew Ted ACHESON gave the Eulogy and all of Elwin's ten nephews were pallbearers. His nieces sang a beautiful "Gaelic Blessing" accompanied by his sister-in-law Doreen (ACHESON) PORTER. Elwin's grandchildren were flowerbearers. Spring interment will be in Bethel Cemetery.

WILSON, Catherine and Nancy (WILSON) KEATING
In loving memory of Catherine WILSON, born April 30, 1953, passed away May 9, 1979.
Nancy (WILSON) KEATING, born September 13, 1954, passed away May 5, 1996.
I thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new
I thought of you yesterday
And days before that too.
I think of you in silence
And often speak your names
All I have are memories
And your pictures in frames.
My memories are keepsakes
with which I'll never part,
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart.
- Lovingly remembered, Mother, June.

In Loving Memory of a dear friend and an inspiration to all, Teresa, who left us quietly one year ago, March 11, 2007. A little tear falls from my eye, I swallow hard, try not to cry; I think of you so far away, One year ago, you died today. Still sometimes when I'm all alone, I hope and pray to hear the phone; To hear you say just one more time, That I am loved and your are fine. But on life's road there's no return, So now I must try hard to learn; To learn to live and love and do, The very way you taught me to. But Teresa dear remember this, You for me are truly missed. If I could have one last hug, I would hold on to you forever. I love you T! xoxo Shell

Passed away at University Hospital, London, Ontario on Thursday, May 15, 2008 in her 84th year. Predeceased in 2005 by her husband of 63 years, Ned RISSLING. Also predeceased by two brothers, James and Grant LLOYD. Dearest and most beloved mother of Elaine and Craig CASWELL (Sudbury,) Sharon and David RUBY (Strathroy,) Linda BALTZER (London), Jim and Linda (Strathroy), Shirley (Strathroy), Beverley and Doug JONES (Whitby,) Dale and Jacquie (Saint Thomas,) Terry (Saint Thomas) and Douglas (London). Loving and fun loving sister of Audrey LIMOGES (Robert, deceased,) Arden LLOYD and Carolyn and Leo ROUSSY (Sudbury.) Precious grandmother of Garnet and Joh-Anna, Neil and Elizabeth, Brent and Kami-Rae, Glenn and Lianne, Gregory and Karen, Sandra and David, Beth and Mark, Karen and Jeff, Jennifer and Richard, Sherri and Steven, Frankie, Ned Jr., Tara, Amy-Jo, Shannon and Dave, Tiffany and Kyle, Drew and Amanda, Daniel and Tasha, Melissa and Jamie-Lynn. Also survived by 28 great-grandchildren. Survived by two sisters-in-law, Eva McLEAN and Regina HOSKINS of Regina, Saskatchewan. and several nieces and nephews. This was Mom's legacy - each person meant so much to her, each one equally important. She delighted in her family's visits and kept a little stash of toys and books in her home "in case the great-grandchildren came by." Born in Toronto, the eldest child of Mildred WILSON and Edgar LLOYD (deceased.) She moved to Kagawong as a child, and later to Sudbury. Her kindness in caring for her family was always her first priority - she lived by her Heart. A spirited young woman, she learned to drive the family automobile at age 14 and shared some very humorous stories with her family. She often said she could live without many things, but not without her car. Her grandchildren often teased her with their pet names of Grandma Dynamite, Little Grandma and Diamond Lil because of her love and accumulation of fine jewelry. As a young married woman, Doreen traveled to the Air Force Bases with her husband and young child and made the best of each sometimes difficult situation. A wonderful cook, who could make "something from nothing", and learned how to cook her husbands' favorite German dishes, and took great glee in his compliments of outdoing his own precious mother's cooking. Mom was often asked for her recipes and would simply say they were "all written in her Head" as she divulged her secret style. Doreen was a partner with her husband in their Family Business before moving to London over 30 years ago, although she was sad to leave her Gatchell and Sudbury Friends. She was a great card player and also enjoyed her television game shows and could "outwit" all of us with her brilliant knowledge on many topics. For the past several years in failing health, Mom gratefully acknowledged the special help of her daughter Linda, in both her and Dad's illnesses. She continued to love the simple pleasures of life and very much enjoyed the neighbourly chit chats and especially appreciated the kind help of her good friend Bob (the neighbourhood Mayor). At The Place She Loved Best, a private celebration will take place at the Country Estate Home of her daughter Sharon and Son-in-law David RUBY. Mother loved their long winding and Lantern Lit acres of green fields, with Lilac trees and a myriad of flowers - she loved the fresh fragrances of the grass and the songbirds as they playfully whipped around. She loved to reminisce about this place that reminded her of her beloved childhood home on Manitoulin Island. A spiritual woman who showed great courage in the face of her illness, her life will be celebrated as she had wished, with her family gathered together in Friendship, loads of food, gospel music, story telling and children playing everywhere, running noisily amongst the trees. She would say "it doesn't get any better than this". The Matriarch and Hub of her family, missing her is an "understatement". Safe in the arms of Jesus, peacefully resting and "Free At Last". Thank you Mother - you were the best! On-line condolences and donations may be made through www.mcfarlane-roberts.ca. or if you wish, a donation to any Food Bank would honour our mother. McFarlane and Roberts Funeral Home 519-652-2020, Lambeth in care of arrangements.

SANDERS, Marie (formerly McCULLOCH, née WILSON)
By Barbara McCulloch MITCHELL and Alison SMYTH, Page L8
Lawyer, company president, golfer, world traveller, bank director. Born March 24, 1909, in Toronto. Died August 18, 2007, in Toronto of old age, aged 98.
When Marie WILSON married R.J.P. McCULLOCH six decades ago, our family became acquainted with a wonderful and highly educated woman who seemed a combination of fairy princess and liberated modern businesswoman.
Marie was an only child, born in Toronto to Albert Edward WILSON and Marie TROTTER. Her father was founder of A.E. Wilson and Co. Ltd. She was brought up graciously at her parents' home in Rosedale, the same house where she ended her days last year.
In 1912, when she was 3, Marie's father opened her first bank account with Bank of Nova Scotia. She would later sit on the bank's board as a director.
Marie was educated at Bishop Strachan School and went to the University of Toronto. She graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1935.
She practised civil law until her father became sick with Alzheimer's disease, thrusting the governance of his successful insurance company onto her shoulders. She became vice-president and later president upon her father's death in 1959. She rose to the challenge, successfully remaining at the company's helm until she sold it upon her retirement in the early 1980s.
Marie had numerous accomplishments throughout her life, and eventually was made a Queen's Counsel.
In her youth, she excelled in athletics. She was a keen badminton player and an avid golfer, a love that continued throughout her life.
Fluent in French, Marie was a regular visitor at Cap d'Antibes, France, and in later years spent winters in Palm Beach, Florida, at The Breakers hotel.
To our family, Marie was a refined lady who could balance the old world of her parents with the modern world of commerce and the demands of high society. She and Doctor McCULLOCH were married from 1948 until his death in 1954.
In 1977, Marie married Toronto lawyer Richard SANDERS in Palm Beach. Marie and Dick loved to entertain, dance and take long walks through Rosedale holding hands. Every year, they hosted a neighbourhood invitational golf tournament at the nine-hole putting green they had installed on their front lawn. Any visit to their house or an invitation to one of their many private clubs almost always included champagne cocktails - Marie's signature drink.
Dick died in 2001, and Marie continued to live in her childhood home.
She had style and grace, and her loyalty, family contributions, intellect and pioneering spirit will never be forgotten. We raise our glass in honour of Marie and toast her with a champagne cocktail.
Barbara McCulloch MITCHELL and Alison SMYTH are Marie's relatives.

HEALEY, Evelyn Annie (née WILSON)
Wife, mother, nana, teacher, author, driver, adventurer. Born December 6, 1918, in Darlington, England. Died December 20, 2007, in Toronto of uterine cancer, aged 89.
By Catherine ROUSE, Page L10
To say that Evelyn was a survivor would be an understatement.
Born Evelyn Annie WILSON, she experienced many tragic events in her life, but she didn't just survive. She loved life. A more apt description would be adventurer.
Evelyn's father was killed by a sniper during the First World War, before she was born. She and her mother immigrated to Canada when Evelyn was 8. At age 16, she was left to fend for herself when her mother died at 36.
Fortunately there was Art, her beloved. She was his "girl next door" in Toronto from the time they were 12, and when Evelyn's mother died she turned to him for comfort. Even though the Second World War separated them for a time, they married in 1945 and started their life together. They had six children, five girls and one boy.
One of the greatest tragedies of Evelyn's life was the loss of her only son, Glen, to leukemia when he was 7. Tears sprang to her eyes whenever his name was mentioned. She was never the same after his death, but her fortitude saw her through.
Evelyn thrived on adventure. Family road trips, camping and annual visits to the Canadian National Exhibition and the circus were a treasured part of our childhood.
Nothing could keep Evelyn down. She learned to swim and ride a bicycle in her 60s, went whitewater rafting and learned French in her 70s and went tubing on the lake at my sister's cottage at 82.
Evelyn worked part-time as we were growing up but was mostly a housewife, a term she was proud of - although keeping house was definitely not her passion. She was too busy moving from one adventure to another, always busy at Hilltop Chapel, a non-denominational church she and Art helped to establish. Sunday afternoons would find one of the chapel families at our house for our traditional lunch of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.
When Art passed away in 1983, Evelyn was heartbroken. She knew she would never love another man the way she had loved Art. But life went on and Evelyn kept busy, teaching medical secretarial procedures at night school and even publishing her own Canadian textbook because she felt the U.S. text didn't accurately apply to the Canadian course she taught.
Evelyn loved to drive and she did so until last fall, when she became too weak.
Her grandchildren remember her as the "cool" nana, the one to whom you could say just about anything. Her daughters remember her as a strong-willed, free-spirited, independent woman, and we are proud to say that we picked up those traits.
Catherine ROUSE is Evelyn's daughter.

ZIMMERMAN, William " Bill" Martin
Born 1930 in Winnipeg, died in Vancouver March 29th, 2008. A graduate of Kelvin High School and the University of Manitoba (M.S.W./56), Bill was an athlete, an actor (MTC; U of M) and a social worker in Winnipeg and Ottawa. As a probation officer at Winnipeg's Juvenile Court, Bill found delinquent youth were the invariable result of families lacking access to services he thought communities should provide. When he moved to Ottawa with his own family, he joined the city's Social Planning Council to help address those needs. He soon discovered that stronger financial support was required by Ottawa-Hull United Way agencies. As director of the United Way for 13 years, he believed strongly that its funds should be determined by the communities' needs rather than by donors' choice. Privately, as a jazz fan and a sports enthusiast, he was expert in the arcana of both. In his retirement in Sechelt, British Columbia, Bill found a fellow sports buff in Gilbert Joe, an elder with the Sechelt Indian Band, whose memory he chose to honour by assembling a unique collection of photos of aboriginal athletes, now a permanent exhibition at the town's Kinnikinnick Elementary School. Bill's positive personality, which found humour even in dialysis units and hospital wards, sustained him to the end. Bill is survived by his wife Sheila, and their children Kate, John and Frances, sons-in-law Ron SHEWCHUK and Peter FINDLAY, and four grandchildren, Zoe and Jake SHEWCHUK, Audrey and Georgia FINDLAY, as well as his sister Betty ZIMMERMAN. He was predeceased by his brother, Jack. Among those who will miss him are his sisters-in-law, Elspeth NICKERSON, Catherine MONTROSE, Ann YOUNG, Hellie WILSON and Florence BROWNRIDGE. A memorial for Bill is planned for this July. Condolences to the family may be sent to billzimm2008@gmail.com

ATKIN, John Hamilton " Jack"
Born August 12, 1928 in Leamington, Ontario; died peacefully on May 19, 2008 in his 80th year, exactly 10 days after accepting the news of the extent of his cancer with courage and dignity - the same realistic way he dealt with every other challenge he faced throughout his life, particularly during his last few years with limited mobility and multiple health issues (to quote him, this was just another 'curve ball'). He was surrounded during his last days by love, family, Friends, music, and of course, Flowers. Needless to say, he was telling jokes right up to his last hours of consciousness. He was much loved and will be missed by his children Greg and Carolyn ATKIN, Jay and Mary Maureen ATKIN, Virginia ATKIN and Keith AMBACHTSHEER, and Jacqui ATKIN and Laurie FRASER; his grandchildren Melissa ATKIN and Mike RYAN, Sean and Lori ATKIN and Peter AMBACHTSHEER. He was also very close to and will be missed by his sisters Jane JOHNSON, Bette SHARPE and Ruth STOREY. There are also numerous nieces and nephews who lovingly remember their Uncle Jack, cousins, a multitude of Friends, and a brother Bill. Predeceased by his parents Edward and Edith (JACKSON) ATKIN, his step-mother Agatha (WILSON) ATKIN his brother Don ATKIN, his brothers-in-law, far too many Friends, and his soulmate, Mary (ROBERTSON) BLAIR, with whom he is now reunited. Always a visionary, Jack was a pioneer in the growing, mass marketing and distribution of flowers throughout his career. He was one of the first flower producers to introduce the sale of potted plants and cut flowers to major food chains and department stores. In carrying on the family business that his father started (Atkin's Flowers, then Yoder-Atkin), he advanced the year-round propagation and sale of chrysanthemum cuttings to North American markets, and was a great believer in plant breeders' rights. His innovation for packaging and distribution led the way for the success that exists in today's flower industry. He also started the direct sales business at Ontario Flower Growers. Known as 'Action Jackson', he was also an avid volunteer in numerous organizations - he was one of the founders of the Cecil Delworth Foundation and the Canadian Ornamental Plant Foundation, a strong supporter of Flowers Canada and The Canadian Horticulture Council, and served on the Board of the Royal Winter Fair when they introduced the flower show into the annual program. Jack has always been recognized by the flower industry of North America and has been given many awards for his contributions over the years. He was also involved in building the Leamington District Memorial Hospital in the 1950s. His interests included having the best garden in town, curling, Kinsmen, tennis, barbershop singing, playing cards, scotch, dancing (even in his wheelchair) and more recently being a Claremont Calendar guy! Jack was always proud of the lifelong Friendships he made along the way with so many people, including his colleagues, most of his clients, and his competitors. His life was about 'caring and sharing'. He will be remembered by his 'power of positive thinking' approach to life, his loyalty and Friendship, the flowers he always had for everyone, and his lifelong ambition to make people smile. Jack's family is very grateful to Lynn WEBSTER, Natalie COPPOLINO and the entire Staff of The Claremont Retirement Residence for making the last few years of his life so happy (and the Residents, too); to Doctor Mary GOSPODAROWICZ of The Princess Margaret Hospital, and Dianne WILLIAMS and all of the very special Palliative Care Nurses at Saint Michael's Hospital for their care and compassion in easing the pain for Dad, and helping his family through this last part of his journey Dr. Gary MAY and the Gastro-Intestinal Team at Saint Michael's Hospital as well as Doctor Carmen MUELLER and Doctor Catherine WONG. Arrangements handled by The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, North York. A Celebration of Life will be held at The Old Mill, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto on Tuesday, June 17 at 3: 00 p.m. While there will definitely be flowers, we ask that those interested in making a donation to remember Jack do so either to The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 2M9 (1.866.224.6560 or www.pmhf.ca) or to The Jack Atkin Memorial Fund at the Ontario Agricultural College, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1 (payable to the University of Guelph). We are setting up a 'Jack Atkin Memories' website - you can email jacqui.atkin@sympatico.ca to send us your stories and photos, and to be added to get on our website announcement mailing list. We will all miss Jack's warmth, love of life, and jokes! It Was A Great Ride!

KIDDER, Jill (born Jocelyn Mary WILSON)
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Jill KIDDER (born Jocelyn Mary WILSON.) She died on June 1 at the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops a few days after having suffered a stroke. We are happy to say she died exactly as she would have wanted bravely, quickly and with minimal fuss.
Jill was born in 1923 in Prince George, British Columbia. She served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War 2, and went to Queen's University, where she met her husband Kendall. With Kendall, she spent her life all over Canada -- from the Northwest Territories to British Columbia to Quebec to Labrador. For the last twenty-five years, she had been living in her much-beloved Dry Belt in Ashcroft, pruning her Russian Olives, moving rocks, and working in the Thrift Shop.
She was pre-deceased by her husband Kendall. She is survived by her sister Barbara SCOTT and Tony SCOTT, by her brother Peter WILSON and Ruth WILSON; by her children John, Margie, Annie, Michael and Peter; by her grandchildren Janet, Maggie, Orion, Kendall, Avery, Julia, Molly and Katie; by her niece Margie and her children, Sara and Hugh; by her great good friend Mary Parson and her son Graham; and by her four great-grandchildren, Maisie, Charlie, Oliver and Ava. She is also survived by many much-loved nieces and nephews.
Jill shone the brightest in her life as a grandmother -- if grandmothers ran the world, she said, we would do more of the obviously right things. So if people want to do something to remember her, they should make a donation to "Grandmothers for Grandmothers" www.grandmotherscampaign.org/ or mail a donation, clearly marked "Grandmothers" but payable to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, 260 Spadina Ave, Suite 501, Toronto, Ontario M5T 2E4.
A memorial service will take place in Vancouver on Monday June 9th at 2 p.m. at Saint Mary's Church on 37th and Larch, and a celebration of her life will be held in Ashcroft on July 26th. Messages may be sent to kidder@telus.net

WILSON, John
Passed away in Ottawa on Wednesday June 25th, 2008 at the age of 88.
Although I was born on December 21, 1919, life for me really began when I met and married my late wife, the Honourable Bertha WILSON, and ended when she died on April 28th, 2007. Since that time life has been kind of a shadowland, punctuated with memories of a wonderful partnership, where we shared joys and sorrows, disappointments and triumphs. In the years of our earthly pilgrimage we have met and enjoyed the Friendship of some very fine people, and discovered unique acquaintances in surprisingly unexpected places. Our declining and final years were enlightened and sustained by the devotion of two loyal and exceptional caregivers: Beverly EDWARDS and Sherlyn PORTER. My funeral arrangements are private and after cremation my ashes will be deposited in Beechwood Cemetery.

DANYLKIW, Mary Ann (née NOLAN)
Suddenly in Oakville, on July 1, 2008, after a fall in her 82nd year.
Mary was pre-deceased by her beloved husband of 55 years, Mike, and two of her sons, Christopher and Michael and all of her brothers and sisters, May, Patricia, Paddy and John NOLAN and Nora GRIFFIN.
She is dearly missed by her sons John (Brenda) and Brian DANYLKIW, her daughter Anne-Marie WILSON and her grandchildren: Victoria, Michelle, Lauren, Katherine, Caitlin and Esme. She is survived as well by her many nieces and nephews.
Mary grew up in Outremont, Quebec, the last child of Philip and Mary Teresa NOLAN, and moved to St. Laurent with her husband. Their incredible journey of love together took them around the world, but they lived in Rosemere, Quebec, Toronto and then Brampton, Ontario after which they retired to the Saanich peninsula on Vancouver Island in British Columbia where they were both devoted to their Friends and neighbours and deeply involved with the parish of St. Elizabeth's Church in Sidney. When Mike passed away in 2003, Mary's health became more fragile and she eventually joined the Sunrise community in Victoria, British Columbia and later came to the Sunrise residence in Oakville in October 2006. While Mary's health continued a slow decline, she was still very active in the Sunrise community, making many Friends and keeping everyone on their toes. Mary will be missed by all.
The family wants to thank the many dedicated, compassionate caregivers and staff at Sunrise, all of whom worked as a team to provide Mom with the closest thing to home, particularly Alma, Sara, Sabah, Henrietta, Makeba and Vanda, who went above and beyond to make Mom's last two years as comfortable and as energizing as possible. As well, the family also wishes to express their deepest thanks to Doctor Helen Pyle for her constant care, assistance and patience.
A funeral service will be held on Friday, July 18th at 11: 00 a.m. at Saint Michael's Roman Catholic Church, 181 Sewell Drive (905-844-7971) in Oakville. Memories can be shared at amjwilson@sympatico.ca and bdanylkiw@rogers.com. Donations to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation would be gratefully accepted. A private family interment will take place later this summer.
