"MYE" 2008 Obituary


MYERS 

MYERS o@ca.on.manitoulin.howland.little_current.manitoulin_expositor 2008-04-02 published
MYERS--In loving memory of Eldridge Myers, 1920-2007.
To some you were a man
To some a carpenter
To some a farmer
To us you were simply the best!
We could see you fading
But never thought you'd leave
We wanted you forever
Our father, Granddad and friend.
You meant so much to us
The tears never quit
It's been one year and yet the pain doesn't stop.
We speak of you often
The memories are all good
But the tears start again
And life goes on!
They say it will get easier
I'm not sure when
But we'll love you forever
Our father, Granddad and friend.
Loved and remembered by Jack, Freda, Pam and Brent, Owen, Marie and Great Grandkids.

FARQUHAR, Alexander James
Alexander James FARQUHAR, native of Brooklyn, Hants County, son of the late Judge Hiram Smith FARQUHAR and Eva Mary DIMOCK, died at home in Halifax on Sunday, March 9, 2008, in his 82nd year. Married for 57 years, he leaves his beloved wife Glennis, brother Hugh (Claudette DERDAELE,) children Alec (Kathleen McDONNELL,) James (Liliane SAYEGH,) Sarah (Randy SUTHERLAND,) Megan (David GRAVES), Donald (Kathryn MYERS), Anaya (Donald CARRIER) and Katherine (Robert LALONDE,) thirteen grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws and Friends. After first pursuing postgraduate study in physical education at Springfield College, Massachusetts, Alex felt and responded to a call to the ministry, enrolling at Pine Hill Divinity Hall, Halifax, Nova Scotia. While serving on a student mission field in rural Saskatchewan, he met Glennis LAMB, of Wawota, Saskatchewan, and they were subsequently married in 1950. After ordination in the United Church of Canada in 1951, Alex was called to a succession of pastorates in Nova Scotia (Lockeport, Baddeck, Sydney River, and St. Matthew's, Halifax), Ontario (First-St. Andrew's, London) and Quebec (St. Andrew's-Dominion Douglas, Westmount), before bringing his ministry to a close at Zion United Church, Liverpool, Nova Scotia in 1991. As a pastor, Alex was deeply devoted to his parishioners, serving them faithfully and with a profound sense of privilege. The words of Psalm 16: 6 held for him a special significance: 'The lines have fallen unto me in pleasant places yea, I have a goodly heritage'. Known and respected widely for his insightful and scholarly sermons - some of which were included in such published collections as 'Outstanding Sermons from Canadian Pulpits' (Evergreen Press, 1966) - Alex was invited on many occasions to preach at churches across North America and to address various conferences, student convocations and other assemblies. He also represented the United Church in international events pertaining to the Reformed Wing of the World Church, including the 1961 Kirchentag in Berlin, the 1962 Japan Evangelism Project of the U.S. National Council of Churches, and the 1970 dedication of the National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. As a member of the United Church Committee on Christian Faith, in 1968 Alex helped to craft the United Church Creed, and as a member of the Committee on Church Union in the 1970's, he participated in conversations then being held between the United Church and the Church of England. During the 1980's, Alex served as President of the Montreal InterFaith Task Force on the Liberation of Soviet Jewry and in recognition of his leadership in this cause, he was presented with an Award of Merit at the 1992 Plenary Assembly of the Canadian Jewish Congress. In 2005, Alex was named Pine Hill's distinguished alumnus of the year. Throughout his life, Alex was passionate about sports and during his early years, he was an outstanding varsity athlete who excelled at track, basketball and football. He was named captain of Dalhousie University's football team in 1945. His summers in youth were occupied with baseball, as he played with the Halifax Saint Mary's softball and baseball teams (provincial runner-ups) and later with teams in Pictou, Lockeport, Shelburne, Nova Scotia and Lampman, Saskatchewan. Alex coached the Lockeport High School girls' basketball team to two Nova Scotia championships in the early 1950's, and concluded his own athletic career in 1958 as a member of the Cape Breton All Stars Maritime Basketball Champions. A funeral service will be held in Edgewood-Oxford United Church, 3055 Connaught Ave., Halifax, on Saturday, March 15, 2008, 10 a.m., followed by a reception at the Atlantic Funeral Homes. A brief committal service will be held in Newport United Church, Brooklyn, Hants Co. the same afternoon at 3 p.m., prior to interment at the Riverview Haven cemetery. Any who are moved to honour Alex's memory with a gift are gratefully encouraged to consider a contribution in his name to the church or charity of their choice, or to Dalhousie University (the Hiram and Eva Farquhar Bursary for students in the School of Social Work, or the Doctor James W. Reid Lectureship in Medical Humanities). The family extends a heartfelt thanks to all who participated in Alex's care. On-line condolences may be made at: www.atlanticfuneralhomes.com

She was Marshall McLUHAN's great love ardent defender, supporter and critic
An aspiring actress from a privileged Texas family, she was swept off her feet by a young Canadian academic who would lay the cornerstone of modern media theory. She later edited his first big book
By Lisa FITTERMAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
When she was young, Corinne Lewis McLUHAN won a Mary Pickford look-alike contest, but woe betide any person who assumed that there wasn't much more to her than masses of dark hair, a wide smile and a disarming southern drawl. For Mrs. McLUHAN, actress, English teacher and wife to the unbending, irascible and brilliant Marshall, looks were just the medium in which she packaged a sharp intellect, a steely will and enough spirit to elope with a man who did not impress her upon first introduction.
"He was six-feet, two-inches, thin, with a little moustache," she once told a television interviewer. "He was very self-contained and very British, all with this peculiar Canadian accent. I thought he was the strangest duck I'd ever met!"
No one in her family, at least, ever envisioned her, a southern belle from Fort Worth, Texas, falling in mad love with a skinny, awkward academic from Edmonton with a penchant for poetry. After all, she was a direct descendant of one of Fort Worth's founders, while her great-grandfather had been the state's first carriage manufacturer and her own father, Charles Wallace LEWIS, provided a more-than-comfortable living for his family as the chief financial officer of the local Swift and Company packing plant. From her father, young Corinne learned to how to shoot and hunt, while her mother, the feisty Corinne Keller LEWIS, raised her and older sister, Carolyn, in the tradition of the Daughters of the American Revolution, complete with its motto of "God, Home and Country."
In this rarefied world, scholastic excellence was lauded, as was churchgoing and the pursuit of hobbies such as theatre. In high school, young Corinne was always a top student but she was also a key member of the drama club called the Vagabond Players, both directing and performing in plays such as Seven Keys to Baldpate, a whodunit by George M. Cohan for which the tagline was "Mystery writer and blonde… too scared to kiss… in mansion of fear!" In The Constant Wife, an extramarital farce by W. Somerset Maugham, she played Martha Culver, a prickly, cynical spinster who doesn't trust men one bit.
After graduating from high school in 1930, she was offered scholarships to several universities elsewhere in Texas, but her parents pressed her to remain in Fort Worth, where she attended Texas Christian University, completing a degree in general arts and pursuing her interest in drama. She also won poetry-recitation contests and honed her talent for public speaking.
Throughout, she had any number of gentleman callers, but she wasn't at all interested in living what she knew for the rest of her life. Rather, she decided to pursue her dramatic studies further, ending up in Pasadena, California, which had a well-regarded theatre school. There, a meeting with a teacher would change her life forever: Elsie McLUHAN, Marshall's mother and a force in her own right, had arrived to run a class after directing at a theatre in Detroit. At once, she decided the younger woman was the perfect match for her intellectual son, who was coming to visit her.
"She told me he was very handsome," Mrs. McLUHAN recalled in a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio documentary. "She invited me over a lot and generally promoted our togetherness."
As part of their courtship, he would pick her up in Pasadena and drive to the countryside, where they'd lie on the grass and read poetry to each other. They hadn't been going together for very long when Marshall, who was working on his master's degree at Cambridge University, had to go back. He proposed marriage. She responded by suggesting that they write to each other for a while first. "But no, he wanted me to go with him or forget about it," she would say in another documentary about her husband. "I wasn't used to this kind of treatment. What made this man tick?"
In the end, she said yes. On August 4, 1939, they tied the knot she telegraphed her family the news only after the deed was done. "Mother knew they'd never accept him," said Stephanie McLUHAN, the fourth of the couple's six children. "Her family never particularly accepted him. Texas and Canada are still pretty different."
The newlyweds honeymooned in prewar Venice, sailing through the canals with gondoliers singing at the tops of their voices - until they descended one morning from their hotel room to learn that war appeared imminent. Their next stop was Paris, but they soon felt compelled to leave there, too; as Mrs. McLUHAN quickly packed, her husband ventured out to get provisions.
"He came with a bottle of Benedictine and a basket of pastries," she recalled in the same documentary. "We took the last train out of Paris and a boat across the Channel, which was crammed to the gills. We were the only ones with any food or drink on hand. We arrived in London the night before the war was declared, and then went down to Cambridge where we stayed for the year."
He got his master's in January, 1940, and though he would begin his doctoral dissertation soon after, the outbreak of war led the university to grant him permission to complete it in North America; it would be granted three years later without him having to travel back to make a defence. The couple sailed for the United States, stopping in St. Louis for a year because he had to work at a local university.
In 1944, they moved to Windsor, Ontario, where Doctor McLUHAN taught at Assumption College. Two years later, he joined the faculty at Saint Michael's College in Toronto. In the 1950s, he began to give the Communication and Culture seminars that would lead to the establishment, in 1963, of the Centre for Culture and Technology the university did so because, by then, Doctor McLUHAN was so famous he was receiving tempting offers from other institutions.
Mrs. McLUHAN was her husband's most ardent defender, fan, critic, editor and love. A staunch patriotism, an even stauncher faith in God (like Doctor McLUHAN, she was a convert to Catholicism) and an impish sense of fun would help guide her throughout her life, through the raising of six children and through the leaner years before her husband gained renown. She never renounced her U.S. citizenship and prayed regularly, while author B.W. Powe, who first met her in 1978 at a Christmas party at the McLUHAN home in Toronto's tony Wychwood Park, recalls that she was in the kitchen, spiking the punch with lots of alcohol.
"She poured and sang," Mr. Powe wrote in an e-mail. "You must picture her: tall, elegant, with a Texan drawl and that bright, broad smile, much laughter in her face. There she was, singing and pouring in the alcohol so that we, Marshall's grads, would no doubt happily reel out into the good Christmas night."
The McLUHANs were devoted parents, although Stephanie McLUHAN speculates that her mother's experience as a stage director must have helped, for it was she who did most of the day-to-day raising of her and her siblings, of listening, disciplining, bandaging and counselling. Her husband may have popularized terms and phrases such as "global village" and "the medium is the message" but he was stymied by the sheer noise of children, sometimes even retreating to a table in the backyard when weather permitted so he could work in peace and quiet.
"They expected us to excel," said Stephanie, who now runs the Canada Institute program for the Washington, D.C.-based Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. "Mom was a voracious reader and a real confidante to my father. She edited his first major book, The Gutenberg Galaxy. Dad was a stellar verbal person but when he sat down to write, he needed help.
"They had a real partnership in addition to marriage," she continued. "Dad just adored her."
In 1979, Doctor McLUHAN suffered a stroke that robbed him of his ability to speak, read and write. While it broke his wife's heart that they couldn't continue the intellectual discussions they'd been having ever since they first met, they continued with their regular walks around Wychwood Park. She would guide him and he'd stay fast by her side - just like it had always been.
Corinne Lewis McLUHAN was born April 11, 1912, in Fort Worth, Texas She died April 4, 2008, of natural causes at her home in Toronto. She was 95. She leaves her children: Eric, Mary, Teri, Stephanie, Elizabeth and Michael. She also leaves grandchildren Jennifer Colton THUET, Emily McLuhan BOMS, Anna and Andrew McLUHAN, Claire and Madeleine McLuhan MYERS and Arthur, Mark and Gwendolyn McLUHAN, and her great-grandchildren, Olivia, Charlotte and Gillian.

KROGH, Thomas Edvard
Born in Peterborough, Ontario, 1936, passed away April 29, 2008. Professor Emeritus, Department of Geology, University of Toronto Retired Curator and Founding Director of the Geochronology Laboratory at the Royal Ontario Museum.
Much loved and greatly missed by his wife Kathy MYERS and sister Joan Armstrong BENNETT. Fondly remembered by his children and their spouses: Erik and Jane, Kari and Dave, Sara and Mark and Jason and Jenn as well grandchildren Jeremy, Rebecca, Ezra and Alyssa Hong GEE.
Tom approached life with a scientific mind, sharing his insights into geology, cooking, organic gardening, energy efficiency and more. Every experience was seen as an opportunity for learning. Always down to earth, Tom was as comfortable in a straw hat on his tractor as he was examining minerals under a microscope. But Tom was perhaps most at home on an outcrop of the Canadian Shield.
A graduate of Queen's University M.Sc. and Massachusetts Institute of Technology Ph.D., Tom especially enjoyed his many years of research at the Carnegie Institution of Washington, D.C. His work revolutionized techniques of radiometric uranium-lead rock dating leading to an unprecedented level of precision that has facilitated the unraveling of the history of the Earth's crust.
Tom was the recipient of numerous awards in recognition of his scientific contributions including the Geological Association of Canada's Logan Medal and the Canadian Geophysical Union's Tuzo Wilson Medal. In addition to receiving an Honorary Doctorate of Science from Queen's University, he was inducted as a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, the Geological Association of Canada, the American Geophysical Union, the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, and the European Association for Geochemistry.
A gathering in Tom's honour will take place on May 8, 4: 00 p.m. at the University of Toronto Faculty Club. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Tom's memory to the Queen's University Science '59 Entrance Award for students in financial need. Condolences received at www.jasonkrogh.com.
