On Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at 2:30 a.m., Nonna finished her work here on earth. This was not unexpected. Our beloved Nonna now has the freedom to fully explore the universe with the same passion, curiosity and independent spirit that marked her time here.
Unconventional in every aspect, she made us wonder if she knew something we did not or could see things and communicate in ways we could not. Such was her particular brand of magic that endeared her to friends and mentors in all corners of the world, and beyond. Nonna will be deeply missed by her daughters, Jennifer and Monica; her sisters, Heidi and Margit; as well as her grandsons, Michael, Mason and Daniel. She will also be missed by her sons-in-law and the many nieces and nephews with whom she shared a special bond.
Her friends and family fully expect her to tune in from time to time to ensure all is well in the world of those she cared about.

Josephine wanted to share the many things that she cherished and that were important to her in her poem below: To my friends and family, A little farewell note from me, Josephine Campbell Burns The time has come for me to leave Miss me, please, but do not grieve.
There are many things to do and see That should remind you all of me.
Light a candle - or a fire, Choose some flowers to admire Perhaps my daisies in a vase, Then sit, and take the time to pause With fresh brewed coffee in your hand, And realize it is so grand To wake each morning to a day That's filled with things to do and say.
Take a walk - Go on a hike, Enjoy the scenery on your bike.
When winter comes ski downhill I wish that I could do it still! Play good music - Read a book, And other's needs don't overlook! Take time to visit with your friends, And, if need be, to make amends.
Enjoy a social glass of wine, And dining that is really fine.
Go to a concert, or a play A lovely way to end a day! All these things were dear to me With family top priority! And so, I will miss all of you, But it is time to say "Adieu".

JAMES W. DUNCAN
James William Duncan died suddenly of natural causes on April 1, 2019 at the age of 72. He leaves his wife, Vesna Petrovic, and his daughter Samantha, who were both with him when he died.
He is also survived by his sons Michael (Erin) and Tyler (Shawna) and his twin grandsons, Finn and Jack. He was predeceased by his father, James William Duncan and his mother Elizabeth Grace Gray.
Known as Jamie or Jim, he was born and raised in Montreal where he was a competitive skier, a passion he kept all his life and one he shared with his children.
Jamie began his career in the bond market at Royal Securities in the 1960s. He joined the exodus of financial talent to Toronto in 1970 and began his rise to fame as a star bond salesman at Burns Fry under the legendary chairman Jack Lawrence. He was part of the generation of wise-cracking traders, and he was a man who despised political correctness, a trait that sometimes landed him in a bit of hot water. Jamie possessed a keen sense of humour and was very good company. Behind the sharp wit was a kind man and a good friend.
Jamie was an excellent golfer and frequently played with the elite of Bay Street. Golf was another passion he passed on to his sons.
Jamie was a shrewd investor and enjoyed a lifelong fascination with the markets. Another passion was exotic cars; perhaps his favourite was a Porsche 911 Turbo.
He left Toronto and moved to Vancouver where he ran the firm's bond desk.
After he retired, he left West Vancouver and moved full time to his beloved Whistler where he skied from his house on Blackcomb and played golf in the offseason.
Jim supported countless charities and ensured his three children had every opportunity in life. Perhaps the greatest joy of his last few years was the time he spent with his young daughter Samantha, who he loved beyond words.
A celebration of his life will be held at the Point Grey Golf and Country Club on May 11th from 11 to 2.
On Thursday, April 11, 2019 peacefully and painlessly passed away in his 87th year, with Rienne, his loving wife of 68 years, by his side. Holocaust survivor and Israeli soldier. Loving father and father-in-law of Yonah, Eli Fleischmann and Annette Duvdevani and Ora and Michael Leese. Beloved grandfather of Amir, Sam, Noam, Daniel, Ronen (z"l) and Julia.

BETTY IRENE GRINNELL (née Heron)
May 15, 1920 - April 10, 2019 Predeceased by H. Rae Grinnell, her beloved husband of 68 years; loving mother to Eric (Sandra), Jane Kelly (John), Doug (Elaine) and Sheila Trenholm (Bill); loving grandmother to Jessica, Jamie, Corey, Caitlin, Jameson, Connor and Graham and great-grandmother to Thompson, Georgia, Keaton, Tristin, Brady and Adeline. Predeceased by her sister Sheila (Hill) and brother Frank (Heron).
Shortly after the War, Betty caught Rae's eye while on a Toronto streetcar.
They married in 1948, and eventually settled on the banks of the Rideau River in Manotick. The river was a reflection of our family. As we rode the current of life, Mom's voice was an eddy of calm. And while it was her wisdom that wended its way into our hearts and minds, it was the undercurrent of her love that held us together.
Dad's government career and involvement in skiing took him across international waters. Mom was the consummate ambassador at his side, her blue eyes sparkling with wit and charm. She was Dad's source of strength and stability.
When her children were launched, Mom devoted her life to volunteering for her community. She spent years on the Altar Guild of St. James Anglican Church in Manotick, was instrumental in the founding of the "Happy Gang", a seniors' support group in Manotick, and volunteered at the Queensway Carleton Hospital up until her late 80s.
As Dad so wisely noted, "she gave so much to so many and asked for so little in return". Their love was transcendent.
Thou hast taught me, Silent River! Many a lesson, deep and long; Thou hast been a generous giver I can give thee but a song.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Funeral Service: 11 a.m. Thursday, April 18th, St. George's Anglican Church, Grafton ON. Reception to follow at the home of Jane and John Kelly.

The task force was made up of 70 professional and community members in 10 committees who investigated Manitoba's shockingly high infant mortality rate. The outcome was that the Provincial Department of Health established the Maternal and Child Health Directorate for the province. Agnes presented the report to the Manitoba legislature.
Agnes served on the first board of Winnipeg's Adolescent Treatment Centre which opened in 1987. Agnes raised monies to establish the Winnipeg Women's Health Clinic in 1981. A clinic for women run by women. This clinic is still in operation today.

Agnes served as a Board Member of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Winnipeg Region and initiated the formation of the Winnipeg Mental Health Network in 1986. Agnes co-founded the Manitoba Adolescent Inter Agency Network. The network held monthly meetings at various member agencies.
When moving to Vancouver in 1993 after her husband died, Agnes, became very involved in St. Andrew's-Wesley Church, where she was an active member of the social justice action group and the End Homelessness Now Committee.
In 2013, Agnes heard that Judy Graves, Advocate for the Homeless for the City of Vancouver was about to retire. Agnes was pleased with the scholarship she had recently established at SFU in memory of daughter Nancy and decided there should be a Judy Graves Scholarship as well. Agnes raised monies and created The Judy Graves Graduate Award at SFU.

PHILIPPA DOANE HUNTER
On April 4, 2019, our dear Pippy died at the age of 90. She died in her precious house in accordance with her well understood, but never explicitly expressed, wishes.
A woman of determination and kindness who valued social propriety as well as individuality, she carried those qualities with her to the end. Even with advanced dementia and limited mobility she tried to care for the needs of others. Prioritizing her family, she became a professional artist only once her children left home and she had a room of her own.
She was a sensitive painter who made beautiful works evocative of the sea and imaginary worlds.
With her husband Robin, she built a strong, interesting, creative and formative home for her beloved children where friends, family, and pets were welcomed.
She loved tennis, literature (especially Canadian fiction), old movies that starred Humphrey Bogart, music, paintings and sculpture, lovely pine furniture and Robin's martinis on the rocks with olives. Wonderful summers were spent by the sea at the cottage in PEI which occupied a place in her heart, as only a Canadian summer cottage can.
Pip was predeceased too early by her husband, Robin Hunter.
He is always missed and often remembered by us all. She was devoted to her three children, Leith (David Rounthwaite), Robin (Susan) and Jonathan (Nancy MacKenzie). She will be remembered as their kind Pippy by her 8 grandchildren, Adair, Hilary and Meredith Rounthwaite, James and John Hunter and Emma, Lauren and Meghan Hunter. Her three greatgrandchildren, August, Georgia, and Franklin will not remember her; but will be told stories about her to keep her memory alive. She will be so missed by Di Bethune and Bill Boyd for whom she was an older sister and mentor.
We are so grateful to Ruby (who is a true gem), Noriette, Shine, Tess, Daisy and Elaine whose gentle help allowed us to keep Pip at home as she failed. Special thanks go as well to Dr. Melissa Nutik and the Mt. Sinai Family Health Team.
A funeral service will be held at the Church of the Transfiguration, 111 Manor Road East, Toronto on Wednesday, April 17 at 2 p.m.
Instead of flowers, please make a donation in Pip's memory to the Daily Bread Food Bank.

As a design architect and partner at Adamson Associates he was recognized for his many awardwinning buildings. After 30 years of practice, he traded his drafting board for his easel and followed his passion, landscape painting. For the next 30 years "Van Gar" captured the beauty of some of his favourite sites, notably Georgian Bay and historic landmarks in southern Ontario.
His true love was his beautiful wife Janet, his beloved children and his legion of loyal grandchildren.
Gar was so enormously proud of his family in his own, quiet way and enjoyed the simple things in life; being at home surrounded by his brood or out on the course or court with his many lifelong friends. Fiercely independent and private, Gar was a principled man to the core. His love of mystery novels, crossword puzzles and sports was matched only by his penchant for warm beer.
Visitation will be held from 4 - 7 p.m. on Friday, April 26, 2019, at Humphrey Funeral Home, 1403 Bayview Ave, Toronto. A celebration of Gar's life will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, 2019, in Laidlaw Hall at Upper Canada College, 220 Lonsdale Rd, Toronto. Reception to follow.

Bill requested that there be no funeral, and cremation has taken place. The family would like to extend special thanks to Faith-Ann Donald (Staci) for her years of caring service, and to the many kind people who looked after our Dad at Peel Manor.

FANNIE ALLISON MAY
May 26, 1924 - April 6, 2019 At the age of 94, Fannie (known to many as Fran) passed away peacefully in Toronto.
Fannie was predeceased by her husband, Joseph and her brother, Joe Galway. She is survived by her brother, Roy Galway; her sister, June Hendren; as well as the children of her brothers and sister.
Fannie, a proud resident of Toronto, came from humble beginnings in Gananoque. After acquiring her Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Toronto, she was a trailblazer during her professional career with the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services -Vocational Rehabilitative Services (VRS). She hired people, not based on their academic credentials but on whether she intuitively believed they had the skillset to do unique jobs while trusting and supporting them in their respective tasks. Fannie's leadership created a strong team within VRS and resulted in lifelong friendships.
Her civic pride carried into retirement where she supported and championed many community initiatives. After retirement Fannie continued to learn - avidly reading, attending lectures, and always ready to engage in an interesting discussion that at times was fueled by local or Canadian politics.
Fannie will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all. A Celebration of her Life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23rd at Christie Gardens, 600 Melita Crescent, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations to Sistering (http://www.sistering.org) are appreciated.

Win lived a full life to 89 years of age during which time she created an incredible family home, entertained a great deal, always giving back to the people and the communities in which she lived with boundless generosity and kindness. Win was an accomplished clothing designer, a master in cross-stitchery, and enthusiastic traveller, travelling with Dave, family and friends.
One of Win's favorite places was cruising on the ocean and boating but most importantly following her lifelong passion for fishing with her life mate and best friend Dave, friends and family.
Family and friends are gifts that we give ourselves and there was no greater gift to all of our family than Win. Win always said "It is better to wear away than to rust away" and she lived her life to the fullest following her values.
If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in Win's name to your favorite charity.
We would like to add a heartfelt thank you to the staff at Mount St.

WILLIAM EARL SHEPHERD (Earl)
MD FRCPC Earl Shepherd died peacefully on March 29, 2019 at Sunrise of Vancouver. Born January 20, 1929 in Winnipeg, MB, he was predeceased by his beloved wife of 62 years, Anne, in October 2014.
He is survived by his children, John (Verna), Cathy, Heather (Don), and Nancy (Joseph); as well as his 10 beloved grandchildren; and 9 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Eleanor Best; and 3 nieces.
Born at the onset of the Great Depression, Earl was imbued with a drive to succeed by his parents and he excelled academically and athletically during his high school years, winning both the gold medal for his high school class and the 100-yard dash! Entering United College, now the University of Winnipeg, at age 15, his life was altered for the best when he met Anne Williams with whom he formed a loving partnership that lasted 70 years until her death.
He graduated from the University of Manitoba medical school in 1952 and moved to Vancouver to pursue further studies, eventually doing his residency in Pathology.
He continued to excel during this period, winning a prestigious Markle Scholarship in 1961 during which he took further training at Louisiana State University (becoming a life long Tigers fan) and worked in Central America for many months.
As his career developed, he worked with many of the great men and women of Pathology and Medicine in BC; his long friendship with the late Dr. Don Rix and his professional relationship with the late Dr. Cam Coady were sources of pride to him. After working for the Federal Government at Shaughnessy Hospital, the family moved to Kamloops in 1968 where he developed particular interests in medical microbiology and medico-legal pathology. During this time, he did volunteer professional work in Western Samoa and Sierra Leona and formed fast friendships with others who did the same.
In 1981 Earl, Anne, and Nancy moved to Chilliwack where he spent the last years of his working career with CJ Coady and Associates and again formed many lasting friendships both professionally and personally.
He retired in 1989 but continued to be active in Rotary, being awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship, and other community service organizations.
He was proud of his magnificent garden and spent countless hours improving it. In 2002, he and Anne moved to Vancouver so they could spend more time on their love of music, particularly opera.
They travelled extensively during retirement and he made trips to Ethiopia, the Silk Road and Tibet after Anne was unable to travel-he was immensely proud of climbing the steps to the Potala Palace in his 80s.
Family was important to Earl and Anne and they were the kind of parents who always supported and contributed to the activities of their children with their time and money. Every one of his children has wonderful memories of him as a coach, umpire, travel companion, and community leader-these memories are his greatest legacy to us. They were similarly generous in their support of many community and educational organizations both locally and internationally.
In their latter years, Anne and Earl lived at Tapestry at Arbutus Walk where the caring staff provided both of them with support allowing independent living for a number of years. Following Anne's death, Tess Aquilario supported Earl for over 4 years with warm and comforting care allowing him to stay at Tapestry into his 90th year. For the last 11 months of his life, Earl was fortunate to be under the care of the loving and compassionate staff at Sunrise of Vancouver-each and every one of them was kind to him and genuinely interested in his well-being. We are profoundly grateful to all of them.
A celebration of his life will be held on Friday, May 24, 2019 at 1:30 p.m.
at the UBC Golf Club in Vancouver; in lieu of flowers, donations to the Vancouver Opera Association or the University of Winnipeg to the Anne and Earl Shepherd Tuition Credit Bursary Fund are most gratefully appreciated.

1924 - 2019
On Friday, April 5, 2019, Berenice Barbara Sisler (nee Warne) at the end of a full life of exceptional contribution. She was predeceased by her husband, George; and daughter-in-law, Deanna. Survived by her daughter, Lesley (Lewis St. George Stubbs); son, John; and grandchildren, Aiden, Warne and Kieran.
Born in Winnipeg in 1924, Berenice was awarded the GovernorGeneral's Medal upon graduation from East Kildonan Collegiate.
In 1945, she graduated with a BA from United College where she held the office of Lady Stick.
Berenice earned a Diploma in Education from the University of Manitoba in 1946 and the following year taught mathematics at Dauphin Collegiate. Apart from two years spent in Louisville, Kentucky for George's residency in psychiatry, and a sabbatical year in Lausanne, Switzerland, Berenice lived in Winnipeg.
Berenice was known locally and nationally as a feminist, volunteer and social activist. Her extensive volunteer community work included service to the Resident Advisory group of Assiniboine Park, Westminster Church, the Liberal Party and the University of Winnipeg where she served as President of the Alumni Association and the alumni representative to the Board of Regents. In 1970, she received the Alumni 25th Anniversary Award; in 1990 an honorary degree.
Her association with YWCA was lengthy, her contributions recognized by life membership in the organization and a Woman of the Year Award (Public Affairs) in 1989.
Nationally, Berenice served on the board of YWCA of Canada (1973-1977) and on the Canadian Advisory Council on the Status of Women (1980-1984). During this appointment, she wrote the CACSW presentation to the Parliamentary Task Force on Pension Reform.
In the 1970's Berenice was a driving force in the work of women's groups to reform family law legislation in Manitoba. She documented these efforts in her book A Partnership of Equals: The Struggle for the Reform of Family Law in Manitoba published when she was 71. After working with the YWCA, the Manitoba Action Committee on the Status of Women, and the Coalition on Family Law, she joined the Charter of Rights Coalition (Manitoba) to further lobby on behalf of women's equality.
In recognition of her work to advance gender equality she was awarded Manitoba's Order of the Buffalo Hunt in 1985; in 1986 the Governor General's Commemoration of Persons Award. At the Spirit of Leadership event (2008), she was recognized along with four other extraordinary Manitoba women for her legacy of vision and action.
Berenice will be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother, an inveterate writer of letters to the editor, and a leader in the fight for reforms in family law legislation and pensions.
Her family would like to thank the staff at the Charleswood Care Centre for their kind and compassionate care.
A memorial service to celebrate Berenice's life will be held on Monday, April 22, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. in Westworth United Church, 1750 Grosvenor Avenue.
No flowers please. It was Berenice's wish that donations in her memory be sent to the University of Winnipeg Foundation, 901-491 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 2E4 or to the Westworth Fund, Westworth United Church, 1750 Grosvenor Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3N 0H9.

November 1, 1947 - April 9, 2019
Robert Ian Waldie, son of the late Ian Scott Waldie and Joscelyn Hogg Waldie, passed away April 9, 2019 in Toronto.
Ian was a true original Torontonian. From nursery at Branksome Hall to Brown School, to UCC prep to boarding at Ridley College. As a youth, Ian was an active sailing member at the RCYC and notable snooker champ at the Badminton & Racquet and Granite Club. He enjoyed archetypal summers as a passionate Hurontario camper, and loved to chat of his first summer mining job in Chibougamou. After years travelling in Europe and studying at the Sorbonne in Paris, Ian began to ground himself in his 2 greatest life loves: Northern Ontario and Family. Upon graduating from the Hailebury School of Mines, he became a bright and enthusiastic prospector in the staking of the original Hemlo Gold Rush. Ian's love for the North never waned. He settled in Muskoka and began to raise a family, choosing a new lifestyle so he could always be there as his kids grew. He successfully built an impressive career in Muskoka Real Estate alongside his cherished Sandy Waldie.
Ian leaves a legacy of great, sincere friendships spanning back over 60 years that includes treasured old friends of his Ridley College boarding days.
Ian's genuine, pure spirit lives on in his greatest loves: his four children, Robert John Waldie (Alberta) Sean Kemp Waldie (Toronto) Samantha Jane Waldie/Don (Muskoka), Stephanie Joscelyn Leman Waldie (Toronto); his two grandchildren, Hayden and Charlotte Louise; and his long-time love and best friend, Sandy, along with his junior chess and pool partner, his beloved Johnny, and his dear forever extra daughter, Marnie. Ian predeceases his siblings, Heather Waldie Maclean (Toronto), Holly Reiger (Australia) and Scott Waldie (Port Hope).
Family and close friends were Ian's raison d'être. He was the most honourable, truthful, kind and truly grounded soul we ever knew, and he showed his family the importance of being faithful to that which you value in life. That was his motto. Ian was completely selfless, generous in all ways and that never wavered, whilst being the true free spirit that he was. We will miss him forever, and we are eternally grateful to him that his fine essence will live within each of us as a guiding light of strength, beauty, brilliance and wisdom. Thank you "Waldo" for the time you gave us. You are always in our hearts.
There will be a Celebration of Life at Christ Church Deer Park, 1570 Yonge St, Toronto on Friday, April 26th at 11:00 a.m. with Reception to follow, and a Muskoka Gathering on June 7th. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Muskoka Conservancy or Mining Matters.
