CLEMENS, Ruth (née GOLDSMITH)
Wife, mother, grandmother, sister, friend, lawn bowler, curler, fashion plate. Born February 24, 1925, in Oshawa, Ontario Died November 27, 2007, in Oshawa of breast cancer, aged 82.
By Lindsay ZIER- VOGEL, Page L8
Nana Ruth was no typical granny. She had all four of her grandchildren reading betting forms at the racetrack by the time they were 3, making up new rules for Scrabble by 6, and, on rainy afternoons, helping her set up the couch as a net in the middle of the cottage in Haliburton, Ontario, for an intense, Nana-initiated indoor tennis tournament.
Born Ruth GOLDSMITH, her childhood wasn't the easiest, growing up in a large family on a farm in Oshawa, Ontario But she made sure her children and grandchildren's childhoods were glorious. With Ruth, fun reigned supreme.
Two years after Doug CLEMENS, a dashing young Royal Canadian Air Force instructor, laced up her skates, she married him. They created a true partnership - it was always Nana and Papa, Ruth and Doug. They didn't preach or proselytize, but for 62 years were a living example of kindness and generosity - always ready with a moving truck, a paint roller or a box of doughnuts.
Ruth was a determined lady, stubborn even. She overcame a high-school education cut short by the Second World War to become a successful real estate agent in her 40s. Then, in her late 70s, she defied fading knees and creaky arms by inventing a device so she could continue throwing rocks at the Oshawa Golf and Curling Club.
Stylish to the end, with a tube of lipstick forever in her pocket, Ruth dressed in well-cut suits in her signature colour - cream. Even in her 80s, she outshone her fashionista granddaughters with a new Louis Vuitton purse and countless pairs of heels.
Ruth didn't much like talking about the past; she preferred instead to live in the present, but did say once that her father was as much a man of tears as he was of smiles - happy tears, she explained. Turns out it was genetic, and Ruth learned early on to keep a handkerchief tucked into her sleeve. She passed this trick on to her two daughters, Sharon and Susan, who in turn passed it on to their children.
From the initial diagnosis, Ruth dealt with her breast cancer with dignity and poise. She never once complained, and still found the strength to offer her signature seal of approval on a recently purchased pair of boots or a haircut: "That's sharp." After a long and stoic struggle, Ruth died at home on the day of her and Papa's wedding anniversary.
Ruthie to her brothers and sisters, Goldie to a select few, Ruthie the Riveter when she built airplanes at General Motors during the forties, she was an ordinary woman and an extraordinary Nana. And we have all learned to keep a tissue tucked in our sleeves, because you never know when you'll laugh so hard you'll cry.
Lindsay ZIER- VOGEL is Ruth's granddaughter.

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

Elizabeth, or Buzz, as she was affectionately known by her closest of Friends, made lasting impressions throughout her lifetime. Her exceptional organizational abilities were nurtured at an early age and surfaced most prominently when she served as a dietician in the Royal Canadian Air Force overseas from 1943-45. This was followed by 38 dedicated years as a dietician at Burwash Hall, Victoria University, University of Toronto. She retired in 1983 to Niagara-on-the-Lake and more recently Virgil.
Buzz's modesty was outshone by her generosity, and she provided much quiet support of many non-profit organizations throughout her retirement years. As per Elizabeth's wishes, a private family service will take place on April 12, 2008. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Chapel of the Morgan Funeral Homes. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Palliative Care, Pleasant Manor Retirement Village in Virgil, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

KALMAKOFF, Sandra Mary
(January 27, 1952-March 29, 2008)
With great sadness, we announce the death of Sandy KALMAKOFF, beloved mother, partner, sister and friend. Sandy died at the Palliative Care Unit, Saint Paul's Hospital in Vancouver after courageously facing and coping with the challenge of cancer.
Sandy was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, the second child of Michael KALMAKOFF and Elizabeth Allison (ZINKAN) KALMAKOFF. A seeker of truth and social justice from an early age, she studied philosophy at the University of Saskatchewan and spent five years as a Canadian University Services Organization volunteer: three years teaching in Nigeria, and two years promoting appropriate technology in Papua New Guinea. She also worked for Canada World Youth in Toronto. She settled in Vancouver in 1980 where she was active in feminist and peace organizations. Sandy became a teacher, worked for a number of years, then returned to school and was awarded a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology by the University of British Columbia in 1994. She was employed as an elementary school counsellor for many years in the Surrey School District. As a Registered Play Therapist she was particularly interested in helping children understand and grow through and beyond difficult and traumatic experiences.
Sandy loved music from an early age and played violin with the Saskatoon Youth Orchestra and the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra. When her son Jacob began to study the violin, Sandy began to play again after a long hiatus. Over the years she was a member of three different music ensembles. Music helped her bear the emotional and spiritual burden of disease.
Living with cancer Sandy became involved with the Callanish Society and found hope and inspiration by attending retreats, support groups and participating in their art therapy programs.
Predeceased by her parents, Sandy is survived and will be deeply missed by her partner, Lezlie WAGMAN, their son, Jacob KALMAKOFF, sisters Elizabeth KALMAKOFF and Jane KALMAKOFF, brother David KALMAKOFF, nephew Erin WEIR and many relatives and Friends.
If desired donations can be made to the Callanish Society, www.callanish.org.
