In memory of a loving husband, Don, who passed away March 21, My heart is full of memories
I cherish them with care
The way you had to leave me

You tried so hard to stay with me
But now you are at rest
I will forever love you
You were the very best
You will always have a special
place in my heart, Don.

POTTS, Phyllis Catharine (née McLEOD)
Phyllis Catharine POTTS, beloved wife of the late Dean POTTS, passed away after a brief illness on January 6, 2008 in Centre Grey Hospital, Markdale, Ontario in her 82nd year.
Phyllis was born on December 24, 1926 to Katie (CAMPBELL) and Marshall McLEOD, on Lot 11, Conc. 9 Nottawasaga Township, nestled between the hills of Glen Huron and Dunedin. She was the third of eight children, namely Hazel (Harry ROWLEY,) Don (Betty,) Jean (Joe YAGER,) Marion (William GORDON,) Charles (Maureen,) Mildred (James WALKER) and Helen (Ronald WRIGHT.)
Phyllis earned her education at S.S.#16 Nottawasaga, Glen Huron, Ontario, writing her entrance in Singhampton. After completing school she would go to work at Dunedin General Store. She worked in the homes of the Bowerman's and Sherlock METHERAL's before venturing off to Collingwood to work in Dominion Woolens Textiles Peerless factory which made denim products; and Woolworth Department Store. During that time she boarded at the homes of the Aikins', Hornsby's, Martin's and Wilson's.
Phyllis married Wallace Dean POTTS on October 15, 1955 in Dunedin Knox Presbyterian Church, with a reception in Stayner. A honeymoon was enjoyed in Niagara Falls and also a few days in Northern Ontario. Then returning to start a new life on the family farm on the third line of Osprey Township, between McIntyre and Badjeros. Phyllis continued to work in Collingwood for awhile, before coming home to help Dean on the farm and sawmill and preparing many meals for the hired men who helped in the fields and at the sawmill. No one ever left the table hungry.
Phyllis and Dean had two children, a stillborn son in 1961 and a daughter Judith Phyllis in 1965. Judy married Dan WICKENS on October 15, 1988 and lives close by. Phyllis enjoyed watching her two grandchildren Katie and Lori growing up next door, taking advantage of every opportunity to watch them in their activities. She was indeed a "proud" Grandma.
Phyllis and Dean celebrated 44 years of marriage at the time of Dean's passing in 2000. She was fortunate to live on the family farm until her time of passing.
Baking, flowerbeds, visiting and chatting with family and Friends, and the occasional bus trip, were some of the things that she enjoyed and that helped to pass the time for Phyllis.
Phyllis was predeceased by her parents Marshall in 1987 and Katie in 1989. Husband Dean (2000), sister Jean (1999) and brother-in-law Joe YAGER (1998,) brother Charles (2007.)
A Celebration of Life was held at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home in Dundalk on January 9, 2008 with Pastor Heather McCARREL officiating. Daughter Judy gave the eulogy and niece Mariane McLEOD played the organ and pallbearers were nephews Roger GORDON, Donald GORDON, Blair GORDON, Robert McLEOD, Alex McLEOD and David WRIGHT. Flowerbearers were granddaughters Katie and Lori WICKENS and nieces Sally STUHL and Dianne ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. Spring interment in Badjeros Southline Cemetery.

It seems like only yesterday
We saw your smiling face,
And we wish for just one second
We could go back to that place.
That place where we could be together
To laugh, to joke and play.
A place where we could be together
For even one more day.
This past year was a hard one,
Cause God came and took Mom (Grandma), too,
But each day we can smile, because
We know now she's back with you.

There's a special angel in heaven
That is a part of us
It is not where we wanted her
But where God wanted her to be.
She was but just a moment like
A nighttime shooting star.
And though she is in heaven
She isn't very far.
She touched the heart of many
Like only an angel can do
We would have told we loved her more often
If the end we only knew.
So now we send this special message
To the heavens up above
Please take care of our Angel
And send her all our love.
Sadly missed and always loved.

15-year-old boy killed driving on a rural road
By The Canadian Press, Mon., June 30, 2008
Jarvis -- A 15-year-old boy is dead after the all-terrain vehicle he was driving crashed into another vehicle near Jarvis.
Ontario Provincial Police said the teen was going through a rural intersection around 6: 30 p.m. Saturday when the all-terrain vehicle crashed into a vehicle.
The driver of the all-terrain vehicle, identified as Jake RICHARDSON of Peacock Point was pronounced dead at the scene.
Const. Paula WRIGHT said the people in the vehicle were taken to hospital with minor injuries and later released.
RICHARDSON's death comes on the heels of another all-terrain vehicle crash that claimed the life of a 52-year-old Dunnville man last Wednesday.
Ian KLEIN, who may have been trapped under his vehicle for up to 10 hours before being discovered, was found after crashing into a ditch.
Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Michael PRICE, off-road safety co-ordinator with the highway safety division, said all-terrain vehicles have grown in popularity. The biggest users are in the 25- to 45-year-old age range. On private property and trails, kids must be under close parental supervision, PRICE said.

WRIGHT, Alexander Gordon (1911-2007)
Canadian educator, athlete, government administrator, naval officer, camper, author and leader of youth, died in Beeton at age 96 on Thursday, November 15, with his wife and two sons by his side. He had just been read the newspaper report that his passionate cause of protecting the Sir Frederick Banting Homestead was achieved by local legislation passed 3 nights before. He leaves his beloved wife of 68 years, Ruth, and two sons, Alec and John, and four grandchildren, Grace, Adam, Wesley and Jonathan, and three great-grandchildren, Brianna, A.J. and Evan, and 6 nieces, Eleanor, Anne, Barbara, Victoria, Lois, Joan, and four nephews, Ken, Bill, James and Gordon. He was pre-deceased by daughter Carol Anne, sister Laurabelle and brother Frank. Dean of the clan and witty host of annual reunions, Gord will be sorely missed. His university yearbook states his football name as 'Flash Gordon' and his academic motto: 'Facta non verba'. Both proved true for the next 70 years. There will a celebration Memorial on Saturday, January 19, 2008, at his branch, Alliston Legion, 111 Dufferin Street South, from 2: 00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. All are invited to attend. Eldest of three children of Annie and James, this farm boy from Kippen, Ontario, was a track and field star athlete who was the first Canadian to use the Western Roll. Doing post-graduate research he won the rare University of Toronto 'Bronze T' for being a member of 3 championship teams in different sports: football, gymnastics and wrestling. He was Canadian Champion in Wrestling and did a double major (Chemistry and Physics) during the Depression, working his way through school. Doing post-grad research he admired the work of Banting, discoverer of insulin. In Schumacher High School, teacher Gord started coaching sports and pioneered community evening classes in high schools in Ontario. Gord married the professor's daughter, Ruth BAKER of Guelph. They later raised their 3 children in Lorne Park on a large property with many gardens and travelled and camped. Decorated as a World War 2 convoy Encryption Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve, Gord also taught unarmed combat to troops going to the front and developed a program for literacy of enlisted men. After World War 2, Gord served with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, demobilising troops and re-training them for jobs in a changed society. From 1947-62 he was Director of Physical and Health Education for Ontario where he pioneered leadership education camps for youth: Ontario Athletic Leadership Camp at Couchiching for athletes and Ontario Camp Leadership Centre at Bark Lake for campers. He co-founded Ontario Federation of Secondary School Athletics and was President of Can. Association of Health, Physical Education and Recreation. Then he became Canada's first Director of Fitness and Amateur Sport in Ottawa. Under a new Minister Gord resigned and returned to teaching high school: Vice-Principal at Banting Memorial High School in Alliston, birthplace of his old hero, Sir Frederick Banting. Gord moved the family there in 1963 and he and Ruth became major contributors to the area. He became a popular Principal, retiring in 1974 with many Ontario Scholars and champion athletes as his legacy. Using his international contacts, Gord had stick-handled businesses and politicians into creating the nationally respected outdoor multi-sport fields and amphitheatre beside the high school. It was later dedicated as the G.A. Wright Playing Fields. Gord co-founded the Alliston Potato Festival and the Sir Frederick Banting Educational Committee. The thrust of the latter was to establish a forum for educating the public and diabetics about the disease and its management, and to establish a camp for juvenile diabetics for them to learn and help one another. Gord won many local and international awards, the latest being Ontario's Senior Achievement, 2006, and Museum on the Boyne's Wall of Fame, 2006. Previously he won Queen's Jubilee Medal, Rotary's Paul Harris Fellow, Lion's Citizen of the Year, South Simcoe Achievement and many others. He has been a popular writer of local articles and a regular supporter of the University of Guelph, where he and Ruth contributed the Baker-Wright Walkway through the research Arboretum. Secretary of Class of Ontario Agricultural College '33, which set a record of meeting annually for 70 years and set a precedent with the Year '33 Bursary to worthy students, many of whom gratefully continued their studies and went on to major contributions to agriculture and science. Gord and class-mate, Doctor Bert 'Honey' MARTIN, led their class into researching and sponsoring several well-received books on leading professors at Ontario Agricultural College/University of Guelph. Ruth and Gord hosted many Guelph reunions at their winter home in Venice, Florida and many more at their Mansfield chalet. Gord at age 90 wrote Leadership - Beyond the Playing Field with journalist, Katherine MOOIJ of Beeton, a critically acclaimed guide to teaching youth to be leaders via athletics. Published by YorkWright Planning Associates Ltd., it is also available through Can. Association of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, the non-profit professional body. You are invited to view and add notes to Gord's new blog site: www.freewebs.com/gawright/. Thoughout his long and productive life, Gord led and served others, encouraging them to innovate and strive to be the very best they could. He and Ruth loved to listen to the successes of others, so many of whom they had helped. A model of service and humility to family and Friends alike, he leaves big shoes to fill. With a twinkle in his eye and a quip on his lip, Gord was always a typification of Olympian sculptor Tait McKenzie's 'Joy of Effort'. To continue the dream of helping others, donations in Gord's honour are encouraged to the Sir Frederick Banting Legacy Foundation, 2 John Avenue, Alliston, Ontario, L9R 1J8. Email foundation@banting.ca or view www.discoveryofinsulin.com. Thanks, Gord - you taught us much and gave us the spirit to try.

Three die in weekend shootings
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A12
Three men are dead after three separate shootings over the long weekend, police say.
In the first incident, Toronto police responded to reports of a robbery at a grocery store on Yonge Street, near the Davisville subway station, on Saturday evening.
Shortly before 8: 30 p.m., they located a 28-year-old man, who witnesses: allege had been drinking and brandishing a knife, in nearby Oriole Park.
An altercation with police ended with the man being shot, the Special Investigations Unit said.
The provincial agency probes cases of serious injuries and death during dealings with police.
The man, whose identity has not been released, was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital in critical condition and was later pronounced dead.
A postmortem examination was scheduled for yesterday, but no details were released.
Two officers were injured in the confrontation, but they were able to drive themselves to hospital. Police last night would not comment on either the officers' conditions or the shooting, citing the Special Investigations Unit probe.
In the second incident, a man was shot and killed at an all-night house party in Scarborough early Sunday morning.
Police had cordoned off Dunsfold Drive, near Neilson Road and Finch Avenue, for much of the day after neighbours reported hearing several gunshots around 6: 15 a.m.
A 23-year-old man's body was found in the snow between two houses. A postmortem determined Tristan WRIGHT of Toronto died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head.
Detective Terry BROWNE, who is leading the investigation, said last night he believes that Mr. WRIGHT never made it inside the house where the party, attended by a much older crowd, was being held.
Homicide investigators last night continued their search for a small, white, four-door car seen leaving the area at the time of the shooting. There may have been three or four people in it, and police want to speak to them. Police do not know if they were simply attending the party and left, or if they were involved in the shooting.
Meanwhile, Peel police were investigating the region's fourth homicide of the year after a Malton man was shot outside a nightclub early yesterday.
Police were called to Trilogy Night Club, on Kennedy Road South in Brampton, for a shooting just after 2: 20 a.m. They found the 26-year-old man suffering from life-threatening injuries in the parking lot.
Andre Alexander HARRISINGH died in hospital. A postmortem is scheduled for today.
Investigators are appealing to any witnesses: who may have seen a small white vehicle leaving the club at the same time as a green sport utility vehicle that night.

HAYMAN, Norman Wright, B.A.Sc., M.B.A.
Norm, beloved husband of Carol (HUGHES,) passed peacefully with family by his side on February 15, 2008 in his 82nd year. He passed after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer, much as he lived with quiet strength and inspiring resolve to care for those around him. Born October 29, 1926 in Toronto, Ontario, Norm was son of the late Thomas and Wilhelmina (WRIGHT) HAYMAN, both emigrants from Scotland in 1913. Norm was predeceased by brothers Bill (Gladys) of Toronto and Tom (Marion) of Ottawa. Norm will be greatly missed by his loving wife of nearly 51 years, his best friend and soul mate, Carol. He was a wonderful and caring father to daughter Leslie (partner Kate), son Jamie, and two sons from a previous marriage, Douglas (Joyce) of Caledon and David of Ottawa, Ontario. Norm was proud papa to Mathew and Katrina, and Kate and Steven. Norm is survived by many nieces, nephews and dear Friends. and was particularly thrilled to meet his namesake, Norman, young son of nephew Thomas. Norm's family is grateful for being in his life and feels deep pride in him. He was a true gentleman who was unpretentious in his success, fulfilling life-long goals and dreams. Primary among them, Norm committed to taking care of his family in a way his father could not. Norm's father died during the Depression without insurance, forcing his Mom to work and leaving 12 year-old Norman with his two older brothers to contribute as they could. As a boy and throughout his life, he was passionate about aircraft engineering. Along with middle brother Tom, Norm dreamt of designing planes. This he did. And he was delighted to fly a First World War biplane from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, as a gift from his wife for his 75th Birthday. He often enjoyed telling the story about a time just prior to his father's death when young Norm and Tom studied aircraft in great detail. They wrote letters with such competence that aircraft manufacturers actually sent box loads of specifications and designs to them at the small family apartment above a store in North Toronto. That was until Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers paid a visit to identify the two unknown Hayman 'men' and confiscate their materials, all deemed critical to national security leading into the Second World War. The officers interrogated Mr. HAYMAN, senior, at length in absolute disbelief that it was young 'Nor' and 'the boys' who were responsible for collecting a treasure trove of classified military documents for no real reason other than genuine curiosity and desire to learn. Norm went on to graduate from Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Toronto in 1950 after graduating from Northern Vocational School in 1945. Norm joined Avro Canada at Toronto and engaged in design of the CF100, initial work on the supersonic Avro Arrow. He then went on to Engineering Personnel Administration and was recognized for his executive potential by Avro. In 1958, the company sponsored Norm to the Middle Management and MBA Programs at the Harvard Business School from which he graduated a year later. When the Arrow project was cancelled, Norm returned to Toronto and joined Woods Gordon Management Consultants for four years. He was engaged for the next six years by the Dominion Forge Company in Windsor Ontario. In 1969, Norm returned to Toronto to join Inco Limited's corporate office in Organization Planning, Management Services and Corporate Planning. He retired in 1991 as Assistant Vice President, Corporate Planning and Business Development. And he then established N.W. Hayman Associates to carry out business consulting projects until 1997. For two decades until his diagnosis with cancer in January 2008, Norm devoted much time and effort to groups and major institutions in the fields of mental and community health, social support and family services. He was engaged in a wide range of roles and responsibilities including front-line volunteer activities, Board level involvement, strategic planning, advisory and committee work at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, among others. He served as President of Madison Housing and Support Services Inc. And as a caring citizen, Norm made informative presentations to Toronto City Council explaining his thorough analysis of the social and economic risks to the City if it won its bid for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Norm was proud to establish a Mathematics Scholarship in his name for the 75'th anniversary of 'Northern' Secondary School. His annual award to a top student provides financial support and encouragement much as Norm received from his teachers on a personal basis while there. Without such interest and direct assistance, Norm's potential would not have been realized. He would not have considered or found opportunity to step beyond his vocation as a teenaged draftsman to succeed as he did in higher education with a focus on engineering and an executive career path. Norm's greatest pleasures included travel around the world with Carol, with family, Friends and for business. He enjoyed time at the cottage in Haliburton, playing bridge, reading, managing personal investments, exploring economics and current affairs. Norm enjoyed their playful cat, Theo, and entertaining Friends and family around the pool and garden of the long-time family home in west-end Toronto. Based on his wishes, cremation has already taken place with plans for later interment at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. On February 27, 2008 a service will be held for Norman at 4 p.m. in the Chapel of The Old Mill, followed at 5 p.m. by a Celebration of Life in the Garden Room, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto M8X 1G5. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a directed fund being set up in Norm's name at Princess Margaret Hospital, to Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation or to your favorite charity and will be very much appreciated by Norm's family.

Philanthropist won Breeder's Cup as the owner of thoroughbreds
With her husband, Ernie SAMUEL, she made significant donations to the Royal Ontario Museum. Together, they also owned Dance Smartly, at one time the world's top money-winning mare
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S10
A woman with an insatiable appetite for life and an inherent belief in the value of giving back, Liza SAMUEL was a volunteer, a horse breeder, president of the second oldest company in Canada, a philanthropist and probably the richest woman in the country. As a couple, Liza and Ernie SAMUEL were Friends, lovers and lifelong partners in a range of interests and pursuits including family, business, the Gaslight nightclub, which they owned and operated in Yorkville in the 1960s, sailing, horse breeding and even a hydroponics venture. "They believed if you can dream it, you can do it," said their son Mark.
Elizabeth (Liza) June SAMUEL was the only child of William Roy and Constance (WRIGHT) CHADBURN, a family of missionaries and entrepreneurial inventors. One of her antecedents invented the Chadburn telegraph, a device that enabled a crew member on the bridge of a ship to pull a handle that would ring bells in the engine room to communicate instructions, such as "dead slow" and "full steam"; the company, centred in Liverpool, England manufactured a great number of navigational instruments. Her parents lived in England, but happened to be visiting Paris in June, 1933, when she was born.
In the early days of the Second World War, when Liza was about 6, she and her mother were evacuated to Canada. Her daughter Kim still has the beloved doll her mother brought with her on the ship crossing the treacherous Atlantic. They settled in Montreal and Liza attended The Study, a private girls school. Her father, who was in the Home Guard, stayed behind in England until after the Germans were defeated. After joining his wife and daughter, he moved his family to the Moore Park area of Toronto and sent his daughter to Bishop Strachan School in Forest Hill.
When she was about 14, Liza went on a blind date with 16-year-old Ernest (Ernie) SAMUEL, a student at St. Andrew's College, a boarding school in Aurora, Ontario Although immediately smitten, she wisely decided to connect with him as a friend - while "she conspired with the nanny of the house to eliminate all other suitors," Mark SAMUEL said. After high school, she entered Trinity College at the University of Toronto, graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in 1955. She married Mr. SAMUEL on September 4, 1956. Children Kim, Tammy and Mark followed.
Mr. SAMUEL, who was born Ernest WILLINSKY, was the great-grand_son (on his mother's side) of Lewis SAMUEL, who founded the steel company Samuel, son and Company in 1855, a dozen years before Confederation. He was also the grand_son of Sigmund SAMUEL, a noted philanthropist who bequeathed the Sigmund Samuel Canadiana Gallery at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. After his parents' marriage disintegrated when he was 3, Ernie and his mother moved into his grandfather's house, which was literally a treasure trove of furniture and the decorative arts.
At his grandfather's request, Ernie WILLINSKY legally assumed SAMUEL as his surname. After graduating in engineering from the U of T, he joined the family firm, which was then a steel-warehousing and distribution business, in 1953. Less than a decade later, he was president. He redirected the company into processing, then product manufacturing.
"He took over the company as a $6-million-dollar business and by the time he was done it was a $2-billion operation," Mark SAMUEL said. "He was an enterprise builder and she [his mother] was very supportive of that."
Mrs. SAMUEL, who had done some work as an actress in radio plays, "kept the home fires burning" while her husband built the company, which is now a leading North American processor and distributor of carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum industrial products. In 1985, Mr. SAMUEL transferred the manufacturing and technology operations into Samuel Manu-Tech Inc., a public company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and expanded Samuel into the United States after the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement was signed in 1988.
In the 1960s, the SAMUELs became involved in horse racing after they bought the show-jumper Canadian Club. The horse, ridden by equestrian James Day, was part of the Canadian team that won the gold medal at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. They then moved into thoroughbreds, buying two foundation mares in 1972, and establishing Sam-Son Farm in Milton and the Sam-Son training centre in Ocala, Florida, which produced a number of champion horses, including Chief Bearheart, Sky Classic, and above all, Dance Smartly, a granddaughter of Northern Dancer and daughter of Danzig. In addition to everything else, Mrs. SAMUEL named all the horses.
As a three-year-old, Dance Smartly (known as Daisy because of the white flower-shaped mark on her forehead) ran her way into the record books in 1991 as the first filly to win Canada's Triple Crown, the first Canadian-bred winner of a Breeder's Cup Race and, for quite some time, the leading money-winning mare in the world. Mr. SAMUEL was named Racing Man of the Year in Canada and received the American Thoroughbred Horse Racing Eclipse Award for outstanding owner in 1991, the year Sam-Son Farm netted $6.9-million and broke the record for earnings. As a broodmare, Dance Smartly produced two consecutive winners of the Queen's Plate: Scatter the Gold (2000) and Dancethruthedawn (2001) and was inducted into both the Canadian and American horse racing halls of fame. After suffering an irreparable injury in an arthritic knee joint, she was euthanized in August, 2007, at 19, and buried at Sam-Son Farm in Milton, Ontario
Following the tradition established by his grandfather, Mr. and Mrs. SAMUEL were generous benefactors of the Royal Ontario Museum. His family tradition meshed seamlessly with her interests. She began as a volunteer in the 1980s, trained as a docent and became president of the museum volunteers. Besides hands-on work, the money she and her husband gave in the 1980s and 1990s enabled the museum to complete its Samuel European Galleries. They both served as board members, with Mrs. SAMUEL chairing the board and co-chairing the foundation board of governors.
In the late 1990s, Mr. SAMUEL suffered a head injury while on a sailing vacation with his wife and was in extremely ill health for about three years. She retreated from her volunteer activities to care for her ailing husband, while taking on many of his responsibilities at the family business. Having been a director of Samuel Manu-Tech since 1986, she became chair and also moved up from vice-chair to chair of Samuel. "She was very strong on governance," said her son, describing how she instituted boards of directors at both the public and private companies. Just as Mr. SAMUEL was recovering from his head injury, he was diagnosed with a brain tumour and died four months later on May 25, 2000. He was 69.
Instead of enjoying retirement with her husband after more than 40 years of marriage, Mrs. SAMUEL had to rebuild her life as a single woman. One of the first places she turned was to the Royal Ontario Museum, which as an institution had always been "close to her heart," according to her children.
"She carried on with a tremendous ferocity," said William THORSELL, who became chief executive officer of the Royal Ontario Museum in August, 2000. "I think she found the Royal Ontario Museum was a way of re-establishing with the broader world," he said, pointing out that she began serving on committees and boards at the museum again, including the committee to select the architect for Renaissance Royal Ontario Museum. (She favoured Daniel Libeskind.) In 2002, she was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Medal for her contributions to the community.
The next year, she donated $5-million to the museum, which dedicated its newly restored rotunda in memory of Mr. SAMUEL and in honour of Mrs. SAMUEL. She was also extremely generous to Renaissance Royal Ontario Museum, donating a total of $8.5-million. Later this year, the museum will unveil a 1,000-square-metre "green roof" in her honour on the south roof of the building's west wing. Built with donations from several trustees, Liza's Garden will be visible from the C5 restaurant.
Daughter Tammy SAMUEL- BALAZ took over the leadership of Sam-Son Farm, the family's horse breeding and racing interests, after her father's death in 2000. Like her brother and sister, she had been involved with horses all her life. An accomplished rider when she became president and general manager of the family's horse operations, she became one of the most significant figures in Canadian thoroughbred racing. In her 20s, she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Although she appeared to have triumphed over the disease, and went on to marry and have two children, she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and died in January.
Mrs. SAMUEL's own ill health forced her to step down as chair of the Samuel group of companies in favour of her son Mark in January, 2006, although she accepted a position as Chairman Emeritus. Daughter Kim SAMUEL- JOHNSON is in charge of the family charitable foundation.
Stalwart even after her daughter Tammy's death, she enjoyed smoking and drinking "and did both right up to the end," according to her son. A few days before, she indulged in a last drink and a final cigarette and told her daughter Kim: "You know I have loved your father all my life."
Elizabeth June SAMUEL was born June 20, 1933, in Paris. She died of cancer and emphysema at her home on March 16, 2008. She was 74. Predeceased by husband Ernie and daughter Tammy, she is survived by daughter Kim, son Mark, five grandchildren and extended family.
