ALLAN DICKENSON GRACE MACLEAN "Max" December 6, 1941 in St.
Catharines, ON - December 14, 2018 in Collingwood, ON.
Max's friends are sad to announce the passing of our dear friend.
This is his obituary in his own words.
A lifetime full of friends.
Growing up in Hamilton at Central Public, Ryerson Senior Public and Westdale Secondary schools; over the same period at the family cottage at Red Bay on Lake Huron; new people from other places in Canada and the USA. More new friends from everywhere at Wilfred Laurier where the credo was fun and somehow we figured it out.
Many became lifelong friends and we often reflect on the impact of the school and how it helped all of us achieve our successes; 38 years at the Ford Motor Co.
retiring as Director of Labour Relations, wonderful people both Canadian and American who I had the pleasure of meeting and associating with and who provided levity and support under difficult circumstances; 40 years at my "handyman special" cottage in Honey Harbour and the many wonderful people met along the way at local social events (many), boating on Georgian Bay and becoming a charter member of the Honey Harbour Hummers R&R band; about 50 years in Collingwood where I ultimately retired in 2000.
Skiing, tennis and golf...many old friends showed up and new friendships grew. The fun never stopped.focal point The Toronto Ski Club.
Thank you all...you were my family, Max.
A celebration of Max's life will held in Collingwood in the Spring of 2019 on a date yet to be set. Friends may visit Max's online Book of Memories at http://www.fawcettfuneralhomes.com.
MINIMOSA ELOISE MCCREA
Minimosa Eloise McCrea was one of a kind, the first and only of her name.
Mini was a wonderful child who was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia at age two and after a very difficult two years has died peacefully at home with her parents on December 17, 2018.
She is survived by her mother Ruth, her father Kent and her "baby" Frank. She has very special grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins that she leaves behind.
Mini faced a long and difficult road through her time with cancer and it created within her a child beyond her years in love, determination, and wisdom. Despite all that she faced, Minimosa was rarely scared, never felt sorry for herself and always kept a playful sense of humour that brought joy, and tears to many a moment.
When free from the hospital Mini loved the adventure of baking something new, tending to her beautiful garden blossoms, and family boat rides to chase the sunset.
We are deeply thankful to our hospital family who helped steer us through these times of hope and sadness, supporting us in all ways big and small. It was a time of crises, which has now turned to sorrow. We are grateful for your heroic efforts, kindness and genuine investment in Mini's well-being as well as your true friendship with her as a person.
We are also deeply grateful to our family, friends and support community. Our strength to support Mini and keep going through the most difficult of times came from you.
Our family will be hosting a reception in memory of Mini at the Mount Pleasant Funeral Centre, located in Mount Pleasant Cemetery at 375 Mount Pleasant Road (east gate entrance) on Friday, December 21st, from 2 - 4 p.m. and 7 - 9 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Hospital for Sick Children, in memory of Minimosa Eloise McCrea at http:// m y. s i c k k i d s d o n a t i o n s . co m / Minimosa We love you Mini, baby unicorn, kitty, foal, baby elephant, baby tiger, and porcupine. We will always remember our perfect summer at Grampy's cottage, howling under the bridges with our family wolf-pack, and the strong and protective love you had for your baby brother.

SISTER ENID SELKE, CSJ
Died peacefully at the Sisters of St. Joseph Residence, 2 O'Connor Drive, Toronto, Ontario, December 17, 2018 in the 77th year of her religious life.
She is predeceased by her parents, Frank Joseph Selke, and Mary Agnes (Schmidt) Selke; her sisters, Blanche and Evelyn; and her brothers, John and Frank D. Selke Jr.
She is survived by her sisters, Delphine (Condon) and Geraldine Selke; and lovingly remembered by her many nieces, nephews, friends, and sisters in community.
Sister Enid grew up in St. Monica's parish in Toronto and attended St.
Joseph's College School, where she was taught by the Sisters of St. Joseph. In 1941, she entered the congregation and served in the ministry of education as a teacher and principal in Toronto, St. Catharines and Prince Rupert, British Columbia.
Sister Enid lived the charism of the congregation as she brought love and unity to many situations. Gifted as a teacher and organizer she continued to use her talents for teaching outside the formal classroom in Kapuskasing, Ontario.
While there, in 1986, in memory of her late father, Sister Enid, in collaboration with others, founded the Frank J. Selke Memorial Resource Centre for pastoral education and adult faith development. She was treasured by many of the people of Kapuskasing and the surrounding area, where she ministered for 34 years.
In 2016, as Sister Enid's health began to decline she had to leave her mission in Kapuskasing and return to Toronto. Recently, she has resided at Sisters of Joseph Care Centre, where she prayed for the needs of new Canadian families struggling to make their home in Toronto, among other needs.
Visitation will take place at the Sisters of St. Joseph Residence, 2 O'Connor Drive, Toronto ON on Friday, December 21, 2018 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., with a Prayer Vigil at 7:00 p.m.

in the Chapel at 2 O'Connor Drive, Toronto, Ontario. Interment at Holy Cross Cemetery.
HELEN SHARPE After a full and rewarding life, Helen Sharpe died on December 16, 2018 in Jerusalem. She is mourned by her sister, Bubbles Koblinsky; her children, Ricki and Steven, and Mark; her grandchildren, Rachel and Ryan Landen, Spencer, Emily Sharpe and Micky New, Benjamin and his fiancee, Ardith, Samuel and his fiancee Jenni; her greatgrandchildren, Scarlett and Aria Landen; and countless others whose lives she touched.
Helen was born in Toronto, May 15, 1932, to Sam and Ann Meyers.
She grew up in Toronto, graduated from Harbord Collegiate and began her studies at the University of Toronto.
Helen's plans changed when she married Sydney Sharpe, and as a 20-year-old bride, moved to Windsor. Her boys were born and raised in Windsor. Helen devoted herself to her family, to her volunteer work and her fight to free Soviet Jews. When, in the mid-1970's, Helen was obliged to find a job, her friend Harvey Strosberg offered her one as a secretary in his law firm. In no time, Helen realized two things: she had none of the skills necessary to be a secretary, and second, she wanted to be a lawyer. With Harvey's encouragement, she applied to, attended and graduated from the University of Windsor Law School, and, at age 50, was called to the Bar.
She practised law in Windsor for a number of years before moving to Toronto to be closer to family.
Helen immersed herself in her family and continued to practise law. She also took up the sport of dragon boat paddling, the eldest breast cancer survivor by decades of all her teammates. As well, Helen undertook several tours of duty as a Sar-El volunteer, serving on IDF bases across Israel. She greased tank parts, packed medics' kits and painted and refilled jerry cans.
At age 70, Helen decided to fulfill her lifelong dream to make aliyah and move to Israel. By herself, with no family and few friends, she moved to Jerusalem and set about making a brand-new life for herself. By force of her personality and her character, she was able to quickly develop a number of deep friendships. She was welcomed into their families, and in turn, those families became a cherished part of her own family. Despite a number of health challenges over the last 17 years, Helen loved her life in Jerusalem and would not have traded it for anything. The quality of her life in Israel was due in no small part to the love, devotion and commitment of her friends.
That devotion was incredible and it was mutual.
Sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, lawyer, 45-year breast cancer survivor, dragon boat paddler, Sar-El veteran, dear friend. Helen was a force to be reckoned with. May her memory be for a blessing.
Burial took place at Eretz Hachaim cemetery in Israel, and shiva began there. Shiva will continue in Toronto on Wednesday, December 19, at 400 Walmer Road, West Tower, PH 6, between 2 and 4 p.m. and 7 and 9 p.m. Shiva will continue until 4 p.m. on Friday, December 21.
