MADELEINE JESSIE GOSNELL (nee Lascelles)
February 10, 1927 September 1, 2019 After a long full life, it is with deep sadness our family announces the passing of an extraordinary woman and mother, Madeleine Gosnell. She died at home, as she wished with courage, grace and dignity, surrounded by family. Predeceased by her loving husband Bruce Harold Gosnell.
Loving mother to Jill and Don Kowalchuk, Lesley Gosnell and Dale Mowat, Beth Gosnell and Gren-Erich Zwicker. Amazing Gramma to Jesse and Jamie Gosnell-Mowat and Leah Zwicker.
Dear Aunt to Nancy Hall, Diane Venner, Donna Macrae, Pam Ullock and Geoffrey Lascelles.
Madeleine was a very strong, intelligent, quick witted, warm, thoughtful mother and grandmother. Full of grit, she passed on many wonderful characteristics to her children and grandchildren. She had a gift for connecting and maintaining friendships. Once she was your friend she was a friend for life.
From her endless cherished tennis group friends to her immense group of developed friendships over a long lifetime and her very special close knit neighbour friendships who helped her over so many years. Bayview Golf & Country Club was a second home to Madeleine, providing many fond years of tennis, to the age of 90 and an immense social life with special close relationships with many of the staff.
A proud Alpha Gamma Delta from the University of Toronto, who studied history and classical languages, having impressively translated Homer's "The Odyssey" from Greek to English and worked at the same with The Iliad.
Always a flower gardener Madeleine was, with an aesthetic talent that came naturally as a floral arranger. Madeleine had a love of travel and was a fabulous cook, who made endless meals inspired by cuisine from her around the world travels.
There will be a celebration of life held on October 1, 2019, Bayview Golf & Country Club at 12:30 p.m.
Thank you to all of her friends and her doctor, Janet Morse, who supported her over so many years and at the end of her life.
She will be fondly remembered and missed by all whose lives she touched.

PAUL MICHAEL KAVANAGH
January 2, 1928 September 11, 2019
Paul Michael Kavanagh, aged 91, died peacefully at his Toronto home on September 11, 2019. He was born in Ottawa, Ontario, on January 2, 1928 to the late Alfred Byron Kavanagh and Monica Margaret Kavanagh (nee McEvoy).
With an undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto and a PhD in Geology from Princeton University, he was a mainstay of Canadian mining exploration for nearly 40 years, with senior positions at Kerr Addison, Rio Algom, Newmont and Barrick.
He served as president of the Geological Association of Canada in 1975-1976, and was a recipient of the Past Presidents' Gold Medal awarded by the CIM in 1972.
Grampa is survived by his devoted wife, Marcia; his loving children, Janet (Gordon) Webb of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Ted (Toni) Kavanagh of Pelham, New York, and Gerret (Heather) Kavanagh of Thornhill; also survived by his nine cherished grandchildren, Alex (Xi), Barth, Caroline (Alex), Will, Peter, Julia, Patrick (Caitlin), Andrew, and Timothy; and by his two greatgrandchildren, Siqi and Sixian. He was predeceased by his brother, John and is survived by his sisters, Anne (Garry) Guzzo of Ottawa, Sheila Serafini of Calgary; and sister-in-law, Lorraine Kavanagh of Ottawa who, along with many cousins, nieces, and nephews, are greatly saddened by his passing.
Paul's long exploration career took him to most corners of the globe, and he filled in many of the gaps with Marcia over the course of their nearly 46-year marriage.
He devoted many hours during his retirement to giving talks at assisted living facilities in Toronto, and playing bridge and cribbage with the residents. He maintained his good health and good spirits over the years by regular application of very dry martinis.
A memorial service is planned in due course. In lieu of flowers, donations to the St. Michael's Hospital Foundation or the Good Shepherd Ministries would be most appreciated.

A kind and gentle man, he loved spending time with his grandchildren and the many family pets throughout his life. Jack was a loving and devoted husband and father who always put his family first.

HUGUETTE SCHWARTZ (née Rajotte)
In Montréal on September 7, 2019.
She leaves behind her husband Georges Schwartz, her daughters Annabel and Nathalie (Charles Décarie), her grandchildren Delphine and Romain, her sister Andrée, her nieces and nephews, as well as many friends and colleagues.
Visitation will be held on : Thursday, September 12th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 p.m.
Friday, September 13th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
at Centre Funéraire Côte-Des-Neiges 4525 Côte-des-Neiges Road Montréal QC H3V 1E7 (514) 342-8000 Warm thanks to the 6th floor team at St. Mary's Hospital who went out of their way to make her comfortable with such exceptional care.
Contributions in her memory may be made to St. Mary's Hospital Foundation.
Incredibly gifted for languages, passionate about architecture, Huguette Rajotte Schwartz possessed several qualities which led her to become one of Montréal's foremost tourist guides. An excellent communicator in five languages, she helped thousands of visitors and tourists discover her beloved city through her much appreciated tours.
Loving wife, mother and grandmother, supremely elegant and original with a remarkable wit, she was curious and always ahead of her time. She was the first Montrealer to drive a scooter, the first francophone to sing in a Ukrainian choir, and her in-depth knowledge of jazz music and musicians led her to co-found the Emanon Jazz Society, a group of passionate connoisseurs which left its indelible mark on Montréal's music scene in the 1950s.
Her versatility was put to use during Expo 67 when she headed the Québec Pavillion's team of hostesses. Her functions led her to meet numerous heads of state (including French President Charles de Gaulle just before his infamous "Vive le Québec libre !"
speech at Montréal's City Hall) and eventually to become General Secretary of the prestigious France-Canada Association.
Her passing leaves an unfillable void.
DOUGLAS LORNE TURNER
In memory of our father, Douglas Lorne Turner, who passed away September 8, 2019 at the age of 91. He is survived by his wife, Lois Rae Turner (nee Jenkins), his daughters Anne and Mary, and daughter-in-law, Antje. His son Brian pre-deceased him.
Dad was the youngest of six children born to Bert and Edythe Turner, both of whom emigrated from England. Directly out of high school he joined the RCAF, initially as a technician, but ultimately moving to officer training to become a navigator. One of his early postings was to CFB Summerside in PEI where he met and married our mother, and where Anne was born. His career moved him all around Canada, and to England to fly on exchange with the RAF at Tangmere. On his return to Canada he and his pilot partner made the first Trans Canada flight for the CF100. Mary was born in Alberta while he was with the Fighter Training Squadron at CFB Cold Lake. Brian was born in Toronto while he was studying at the Canadian Forces Staff College. Later he commanded CFB Armstrong, one of the Pinetree Line radar bases. He retired with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and, ready for his next challenge, undertook a second career with the Ontario Housing Corporation.
There he was very involved in the acquisition of the lands for the planned Seaton community in Pickering.
In his true retirement he became a disciple of Tai Chai both as a student and as a teacher, no doubt contributing to the wonderful health he enjoyed right up until the end. Golf was a lifelong passion, as was wine. But above all, he was a voracious reader, studying a number of international newspapers each day, and ordering endless books from the Toronto Public Library on his well-used iPad. Dad and Mum also enjoyed long walks in the local park system until Mum fell and broke her hip recently. At this time, Dad embarked on his third career, that of devoted care-giver, seeing her through recovery, mobility issues and memory loss.
While we understand it is hard for family and friends not to have an opportunity to come together, we are respecting his express wish for no ceremony whatsoever, and in lieu of flowers, for donations to be made to The Salvation Army. He will always be in our thoughts, and perhaps one evening, as you sip a nice glass of wine, he'll be in yours.
We know he would enjoy that.
DOUGLAS HECTOR MACDONALD SMITH
1964 - 2019 The Death of Douglas Hector MacDonald Smith has occurred at his home in Sydney, Australia. He was the eldest son of Stuart Allen Smith and the late Valerie, (Poaps), Smith. He is survived by his son Lachlan, and Lachlan's mother, Terry Bursey (Ian), his father and step-mother Brenda Conboy, his sister Rachel Alexander, (Doug), brothers Matthew, (Rose), Adam, (Tascha), and numerous nieces and nephews, but above all, by Emily Wells, a childhood friend who, after many years, became the centre of his life.
Born in Ottawa and raised in Fredericton, he graduated in Geology from the University of New Brunswick.
As a geologist, he worked all over northern Canada, Alaska, and the Canadian Arctic. The explorer in him took him to the western deserts of Australia, and finally to Papua New Guinea. It was there he found a new family, and the search for gold was enriched by a love of the native people of the area. That love was returned by the people of Enga province, and especially, the Puman Aiyel and Yokorin tribes among whom he was known as "a man who greets people well." As a spontaneous gesture of affection and acceptance, a traditional two day village funeral has been held in Crown Ridge PNG.
Interment will be in Keswick New Brunswick at a later date and a portion of his ashes will return to Papua New Guinea at the request of the community.
