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.

Jennie was born in Billings Township on Manitoulin Island. She attended Billings Public School and Gore Bay High School. It was always her ambition to teach school so she followed through with this by attending North Bay Normal School (Teacher's College). In 1936 she began teaching at Pleasant Valley, then Long Bay and Sandfield schools on Manitoulin. In 1943 she moved to Windsor, Ontario and spent the rest of her long teaching career there until her retirement in about 1980. She taught Kindergarten at Begley School for ten years and during those years she also attended night school and summer school classes at Wayne State University in Detroit, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education degree in 1956 and a Master of Education degree in 1959. Then she became a primary reading consultant for Essex County. Her next move was to the Windsor Teacher's College where she was a Master of Primary English courses. When the Teacher's College affiliated with the University of Windsor in 1970 Jennie became a Professor with the Faculty of Education, a position which she held until her retirement. During the years she also taught many night school and summer school courses in various locations between Toronto and Windsor. Her retirement years were spent in Toronto, Kelowna, BC and Cambridge. Cremation has taken place, arrangements made by Barthel Funeral Home in Cambridge. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date in Gore Bay, Ontario. Interment at Long Bay Cemetery.

Negotiator remembered for toughness
By Sandra MARTIN and Campbell CLARK and Greg McARTHUR, Page A4
Simon REISMAN, Canada's chief free-trade negotiator during talks with the United States in the late 1980s, died in his sleep of cardiac arrest early yesterday morning at the Heart Institute in Ottawa.
The tough-talking civil servant and Second World War veteran had a pacemaker installed on Thursday because of ongoing heart problems. He was 88.
In interviews yesterday, his Friends and colleagues from both sides of the negotiating table pondered who the real Simon REISMAN was: Was he the blunt, pushy and crusty debater who forged Canada's first free-trade agreement with the United States, or just an artful negotiator?
Derek Burney, a former Canadian ambassador to the United States, said Mr. REISMAN's bluster was the real deal.
"Charming is not a word you would use, okay?" chuckled Mr. Burney, a onetime chief of staff to Brian Mulroney. "He was Mr. Rough-and-Tumble."
While his angry walkout on free-trade talks in the 1980s seemed to end the negotiations in a very public way, it actually moved them up a notch to top politicians who pushed the free-trade agreement ahead.
"He was one tough bird," said Allan Gotlieb, former Canadian ambassador to the United States. " He was extremely direct and totally unfearful of the consequences of his comments. He was the diametric opposite of the namby-pamby civil servant."
Thomas Niles, the U.S. ambassador to Canada during the talks, said he remembered Mr. REISMAN fondly, but always wondered if his often loud and indignant objections were more strategic than spontaneous.
"A lot of it was for effect, I always had the feeling. Sometimes - I never did it because he was an older man and you always had to show respect - but sometimes I wanted to say 'Simon, Simon, please. Calm down,' " Mr. Niles said, laughing.
Born in Montreal on June 19, 1919, Mr. REISMAN studied economics at McGill University and the London School of Economics where he received a master's degree in economics. After joining the civil service in 1946, he worked on a number of significant economic agreements under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade that helped establish international trading systems and regulations after the Second World War. He also played a major role in the establishment of the Canadian-U.S. Auto Pact in 1965.
His son, physician John REISMAN, said yesterday that Mr. REISMAN appeared to have come through the pacemaker operation without any difficulties. "He was reading The Wall Street Journal yesterday and was active mentally and we thought he was going to make it," Dr. REISMAN said.
Mr. REISMAN leaves his wife Constance and three children. Funeral arrangements are pending.

McARTHUR, Alexander Arthur, " Jock," "VE3DJ,"
Died at home in Ancaster on May 6th 2008, in his 92nd year.
Beloved husband of the late Elizabeth Janet, father of Lawrie (Tom) and Julia (Justin), and Grandad of his adored grandchildren, Jane, Alex and Chris, by all of whom he is missed and lovingly remembered.
Jock was fascinated with electronics and his lifelong hobby was amateur radio from age 13 when he got his first amateur radio licence for code, to his later experiments with amateur television. He graduated in Electrical Engineering from the University of Toronto, and was President of his Class of '39.
During the Second World War he served with the Royal Canadian Signals Corps in Italy and the Netherlands, retiring as a major at the end of the war. He was a Life Member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute.
His working life was with Canadian Westinghouse, notably, managing the Turbine and Generator Division, and retiring as Assistant to the President.
Jock's community involvement included serving as Church Warden for Saint_John's Anglican Church in Ancaster, and membership on the Board of Directors of Saint Peter's Hospital, Hamilton, where he was intimately involved in the major building projects undertaken by Saint Peter's during his tenure. With Janet, he volunteered enormous time and effort over many years to the Art Gallery of Hamilton. He headed the building committee of the "new" Art Gallery of Hamilton, now a pillar of cultural life in Hamilton and environs, as well as serving as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors.
He bequeathed to his children and grandchildren enquiring minds, a fascination with science and nature, and a love of life and fun.
Jock was able to have his wish of remaining in his home of 54 years because of the fond and able care of Tammy CARLSON, her family, and Richard BELL. He also benefited from wonderful medical and personal care from Doctor Michael STEPHENSON, the staff at Community Care Access Centre (Hamilton), and many others.

MacARTHUR, Dorothy Frances (née TOMLINSON) "Tootie"
Peacefully on Saturday, June 14th, 2008. Loving and devoted wife, for 61 years, of the late Cam. Wonderful mother to Judy (Fergus), Cam (Leah), Heather and Jamie (Terry). Doting grandmother to 12 and great-grandmother to 10. Born in Toronto, she grew up in Winnipeg. She and Cam settled in Oakville following World War 2 and raised their children on Dundas Street (now Trafalgar) until moving to "the farm" north of Oakville in 1961. She loved her family. Each Sunday she hosted large family dinners, serving heaping portions of brisket and tomato aspic. Known for being a great conversationalist, these occasions were true family events at which she held court with everyone from toddlers to seniors. With her sense of humour and quick wit she would often have a crowd of people in stitches. With Cam, her soul mate, she regularly attended extended family reunions and events across Canada and the United States. When she wasn't at her family's sports, scholastic or other events, she was enjoying summers at the cottage on Georgian Bay -- always catching the biggest fish! Warm winters were spent in Tortola, British Virgin Islands with visits from family members and Friends. To Tortolans, she and Cam were family and the feeling was mutual. Survived by her sister Jean of Toronto. Predeceased by her brothers Joe of Nassau and Bill of Thunder Bay. Beloved aunt of many nieces and nephews. Resilient in all facets of her life, she faced recent health challenges head-on with an upbeat attitude. Each moment was lived to the fullest. No doubt, she's already ordered a hot dog and beer to enjoy with her beloved Cam. A heartfelt thank you from the family to Brenda OOSTEN, whose loving care and compassion over the last five years granted mom her wish to remain at home, at "the farm." Visitation will be held at the Kopriva Taylor Community Funeral Home, 64 Lakeshore Road West, Oakville (one block east of Kerr, 905-844-2600), Friday evening from 6-9 p.m. A Service to celebrate Dorothy's life will be held on Saturday, June 21, 2008 at Saint_Jude's Anglican Church, 160 William Street, Oakville at 1: 00 p.m. If desired, memorial contributions to the Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family.

Toronto -- Film producer and record-label publicist Dennis MURPHY worked among stars, but he wasn't dazzled by them. His true ambition was to write and publish Canadian crime fiction, and it was a dream to which he held firm.
Writing fiction and doing his own thing was always on his mind, even while working for Elektra Records and meeting the likes of Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Jim Morrison and the Beatles. The same could be said of his time at the National Film Board, where he had a hand in such documentaries and television programs as Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, Manufacturing Consent and a portrait of the late Oscar Peterson titled In the Key of Oscar.
In Canada, Mr. MURPHY's work appeared on TVOntario, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Global, History Television and The Discovery Network. In the United States, it was seen on Court TV, National Geographic and PBS. In 1990, he was appointed executive producer of National Film Board's Studio C in Montreal. A year later, he became director of National Film Board's flagship Ontario Centre, executive producing more than 100 documentary films. "Dennis was brilliant at everything he tried," said friend Douglas McARTHUR, a retired Globe and Mail reporter. "He had a zest for life and Irish whisky."
Within a few short years of publishing crime fiction in such notable places as Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock Magazine and Storyteller Magazine, he became one of Canada's leading crime writers. Dead in the Water, a fictionalized account of the death of painter Tom Thomson, won the Bloody Words crime writers' award and Storyteller's annual Best Canadian Short Story prize, and was short-listed for a Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Award.
In 2005, he won the Storyteller prize for the second year running with Death of a Drystone Wall, and with it scored one of two nominations for that year's Arthur Ellis Short Story award. The other nomination was for Sound of Silence. A year later, he won the 2006 short story prize with Fuzzy Wuzzy, originally published in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine.
After a bidding war between two publishers, Mr. MURPHY signed a contract last March with Harper-Collins Canada for his novel Darkness at the Break of Noon. He borrowed the title from a Bob Dylan lyric, so clearly some of the stars he had worked with mattered to him more than he let on.
Dennis MURPHY grew up in Dundas, Ontario, loving the life of a small-town boy. But when he was 14, darkness descended after his 45-year-old father, Robert MURPHY, died of a heart attack. Dennis never got over the loss and always feared he, too, would die young. This fear may have explained why he achieved so much during his life.
In 1967, Mr. MURPHY graduated from McMaster University in Hamilton with a bachelor of arts in Irish literature. He was editor of the school paper, a drummer in a rock band and in love with all things Dylan. Bored one Christmastime, Mr. MURPHY convinced a group of Friends to go door-to-door "Dylan-ing." They greeted people on their doorsteps with Blowin' in the Wind instead of Come Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
After graduation, he was offered a teaching job in Ireland but moved instead to New York, where he threw himself into the music business. In 1971, he became the East Coast head of audio engineering with Elektra Records, but he soon returned to Canada and established Sundog Productions, based in Toronto and Vancouver. He produced albums for singers Shirley Eikhard, Christopher Kearney, Ron Nigrini and others. In 1976, he worked at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as director of Ninety Minutes Live, hosted by Peter Gzowski. He also worked on Take 30 and The Final Edition. As a highly successful freelancer, Mr. MURPHY's career took off in all directions, resulting in a curriculum vitae more than 20 pages long.
"Whatever Dennis did, he would just completely obsess about it, do everything he could, research it and just exhaust the subject and then move on to something else," said his wife, Joanna KUBICKI. "He lived for writing. When he wasn't writing, you could see him, the wheels were spinning - he was creating stories in his head."
Of all the genres, it was crime writing that appealed to him most, she said. Several filing cabinets bulging with stories were a testament to that.
Ms. KUBICKI met Mr. MURPHY at TVO in 1980. She was working in the arts department and he was freelancing. They came together over shared misery, commiserating about the abrupt ends to their previous relationships. He had a white dog; she had a white cat. Neither could find a place to rent, so they bought a house together in Toronto's Riverdale neighbourhood. It worked out so well that they married a couple of years later. In 1983, the circle was completed with the birth of their son, Adam.
Around that time, Mr. MURPHY began longing to return to the kind of small-town pleasures he knew as a child and to raise Adam in some place similar. He convinced Ms. KUBICKI to move to an old Victorian house in Stouffville, Ontario He not only excelled at his work but he was also an impressive community member. He became a scout leader, played on a baseball team, organized a music festival and was appointed to the Stouffville parks and recreation advisory board.
He started his own television production company, Anagraph Inc. He did some of his best thinking on the backed-up Don Valley Parkway while commuting to Toronto. But, true to form, he soon grew bored took a job in 1990 with the National Film Board in Montreal. The family lived in Hudson, Quebec, during the famous Mohawk land dispute in Oka, just across the river. Traffic jams were soon replaced with tanks on Main Street and disturbing newscasts. Out of this, Mr. MURPHY made the documentary Acts of Defiance, in support of land-rights issues.
The National Film Board transferred him to Toronto and the family moved back into their house in Stouffville. There, he continued quietly writing. In 1992, Ms. KUBICKI's longing to live in Toronto landed them in a house in the Beaches neighbourhood and an introduction, for Mr. MURPHY, to a gathering of writers at The Feathers pub on Kingston Road. He decided to get serious, and joined Crime Writers of Canada.
He also decided to try his hand at travel writing, and contacted his friend Mr. McARTHUR, who was then acting travel editor at The Globe. He submitted an account of his quest to find the perfect omelette pan in Paris.
"I thought it was really good, but I was afraid I might be prejudiced because he was a friend, so I showed it to some other editors," said Mr. McARTHUR. " They liked it too, and it ran as a travel front. The next week, I had a phone call from a professor at a journalism school somewhere in the southern U.S. He wanted to use it in his classes as an example of how to write a perfect travel story."
Toronto mystery writer Peter ROBINSON lived around the corner from Mr. MURPHY. He was also a crony at The Feathers and the two men frequently talked about crime writing over a pint or two. Mr. ROBINSON recognized his friend's passion and his excellent storytelling skills. He became a mentor to him. Around this time, Mr. MURPHY started to publish award-winning short stories, as well as starting on a book.
"The novel was his dream, and it's hard to get over the cruel irony that he should be taken away so soon after finding out that it was going to be published," Mr. ROBINSON said. "But Dennis was a polisher, a perfectionist. It was hard for him to let go of a piece of writing because he knew there was always more he could do to make it even better."
Mr. MURPHY also published a poem in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine called Final Escape.
"If a short story can be deemed a process of finite literary craft, then a poem is a word sculpture," Mr. MURPHY told Poe's Deadly Daughters, a blog for mystery aficionados. "It also elevated me instantly to the precious (to me) category of published poet, something that, as yet, has impressed no one who reads my curriculum vitae."
Scottish mystery writer Ian Rankin, who liked the poem, sent Mr. MURPHY a book that he dedicated to "the crime poet."
Mr. MURPHY, who until earlier this year taught broadcasting and film studies at Centennial College in Toronto, frequently steered his crime-writing into Canadian history. Without being preachy, the stories often packed a political punch. "I don't set out to make a bald-headed statement, just to write a story with a crime at its centre that has something to do with our world," he said. "I've been making documentary films for a long time and I suppose my feelings about issues are always there and ready (and more than willing) to be tapped."
Many of his killers were highly moral human beings who had been wronged, or who had committed crimes that readers might condone or even approve, he said. For instance, in Dead in the Water, Tom Thomson is killed by a local guide who feels his home in Algonquin Park has been stolen by "the painter" who sees only wind-bent trees and broken beaver dams. The story ends with these lines: "If I hadn't killed the painter, he'd be forgotten, too."
Darkness at the Break of Noon will be published in February.
Dennis MURPHY was born September 6, 1943, in Hamilton. He died June 15, 2008, in Toronto of lung cancer. He was 64. He is survived by his wife, Joanna KUBICKI, and their son, Adam MURPHY.
