FELICITY DIANE BRIGGS
A remarkable, funny and vibrant woman left us unexpectedly on September 9, 2018. She died in her true love's arms at their beloved cottage in Prince Edward County. Married for 33 years, Felicity and Don Mayne shared a joyous journey of life. She will be greatly missed by her sister, Fiona; brother-in-law, Bernie; and their children, Myles and Kaitlin. Her brother, Andy Briggs, predeceased her.
Felicity was a mentor and role model who approached life with a zest for learning and sharing. She was witty, wise and compassionate to all whose paths she crossed. Felicity loved and thrived practising as a labour relations mediator and arbitrator modeling fairness and social justice. She resolved their disputes while connecting with the parties through personal stories.

Felicity's involvement with Casey House and World Vision Canada would make them excellent choices for a donation in her memory.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of Terry Wayne Elder on September 9, 2018.
Terry leaves behind Janet, his loving wife of 41 years, and daughters Christine (Jeremy) Sandor, Joanna (Loughlin) Dyer, and Margaret (Ben Bowers) Elder.
Terry will be greatly missed by his two beloved grandchildren, Juniper and Caspian Sandor; his brother Ken (Louise) Elder of PEI; sisters Janice Taillon and Lori (Colin) Ferguson of Guelph; and sister-in-law Lynda Wright. Terry's friend Allen Coates will feel the great loss of the friendship they shared. Terry will be fondly remembered by his aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews, and his many, many friends and clients.
He was predeceased by parents Jessie and Jack Elder of Guelph; parents-in-law Hugh and Elsie Wright; and brother-in-law Harvey Wright of Toronto. Born in Toronto, Terry spent his formative years in Guelph, attending Victory School and Guelph Collegiate Vocational Institute before earning his BSc at the University of Waterloo.
On graduation in 1966, he joined Deloitte, Plender, Haskins and Sells, the beginning of his 51- year career as a Chartered Accountant.
In 1991, Terry left his partnership at Deloitte and established himself as a sole practitioner, growing the successful Elder Financial Services in West end Toronto.
Terry was an avid sportsman, playing football, baseball, and squash in addition to windsurfing, skiing, snowboarding, and golfing.
Terry loved to travel and began his globe-trotting shortly after receiving his CA, working for Deloitte in Vancouver; Los Angeles; Sydney, Australia; and Auckland, NZ. He believed the key to a successful marriage was to always have a trip in the planning stages and he followed that rule. Over the years, Terry and Janet travelled to 17 countries in addition to exploring many parts of Canada and the US. In recent years, Terry loved spending time at his beloved cottage at Paradise Point, casting his line from the "Titanic" into Georgian Bay. The fish had nothing to fear.
He was a longtime member of The Rotary Club of Toronto Eglinton and of Royal York Road United Church.
We are grateful to Dr. David Hedley (Princess Margaret Hospital), Dr.
Hamrahi (Dorothy Ley Hospice) and nurse Kay McKenzie for their excellent care.
The family will receive friends at Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas St. W. on Monday, September 17, 2018 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. A celebration of Terry's life will be held at Royal York Road United Church, 851 Royal York Road, Etobicoke (at Glenroy) on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, friends and family may wish to make a donation to The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, to Dorothy Ley Hospice, or a charity of their choice.
CHARLES EDWARD SELWYN FRANKS (Ned)
BA, MA (Queen's), DPhil (Oxon), FRSC, FRCGS Professor Emeritus of Political Studies, Queen's University October 23, 1936 September 11, 2018
With profound sadness we announce that Professor C.E.S.
(Ned) Franks died with grace and dignity after a six-year battle with short-term memory loss and prostate cancer, on September 11, 2018, with family at his side. Ned is survived by Daphne (nee Berlyn), his wife of 61 years and devoted caregiver in recent years. Also survived by daughter, Caroline Davis (Gary); son, Peter Franks (Sharon); granddaughter, Gillian Franks; sister, Anne Montagnes; nephew, David Montagnes (Fiona); niece, Joan Montagnes (Martin); and numerous cousins; tragically predeceased in 1989 by son, Timothy.
During his 35 years at Queen's University, Ned's scholarship and public service covered public administration, government accountability, Canadian parliamentary government, aboriginal self-government, canoeing, Canada's north, and political issues related to sport, nuclear energy, and India. His books included The Parliament of Canada (now a classic), The Canoe and White Water, and Dissent and the State. He was once introduced as "the rock star of Canadian political studies"! Ned was an inspiring teacher and mentor, indeed a father figure, to generations of students. Ned loved outdoor activities including cross-country skiing, camping, and above all, wilderness white water canoeing, particularly in the far north. His keen artistic sense was apparent in his stunning photographs, haunting watercolours, and his deep appreciation of food, wine, painting, prints, pottery, architecture, and the treasures of his exotic (East) Indian heritage.
Along with a love of music and an inability to sing on key, Ned could recite verse ranging from Shakespeare and Dylan Thomas to bawdy limericks, Beat Poets, and William McGonagall. Ned was also a master of bad puns, an ability he kept right to the end.
Cremation has taken place.
A celebration of Ned's life will be held at a later date.
In remembrance, donations to the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation directed to the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario or Palliative Care at Providence Care would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to Robert J. Reid & Sons, "The Chapel on the Corner", Kingston.

DR. TERRY KAVANAGH
A famous Canadian pioneer in the field of cardiovascular health, died at home at age 91 on September 10, 2018, from complications of metastatic skin cancer.
Terry was born on June 6, 1927, in Manchester, England, to Anne and Denis Kavanagh. He emigrated from England to Canada in 1957 as a physician and worked at the Workmen's Compensation Board (now WSIB) for 10 years, achieving the position of Chief Pensions Medical Officer.
In 1967, Terry became Medical Director of the Toronto Rehabilitation Centre (TRC) and introduced what has now become the largest outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program in North America. During his 32-year tenure at TRC, 25,000 patients passed through the program and benefited from Terry's groundbreaking approaches. In 1973, he made medical history when seven of his heart attack patients completed the Boston Marathon and, in 1985, he personally trained and ran with the first heart transplant patient to complete the same marathon.
Dr. Kavanagh was also an active clinical researcher in his field.
His early work concentrated on post-heart attack patients and establishing the benefits of exercise training, the effects of dehydration on distance runners and the safety of marathon running. His later research contributed significantly to our understanding of exercise testing, prescription and training in heart transplant and chronic heartfailure patients, and his findings were published in more than 100 peer-reviewed journals. He received national and international recognition for developing unique and visionary clinical concepts in this field, many of which are as contemporary today as they were forward thinking when he originally introduced them. During his tenure, Terry also authored three books: Heart Attack, Counter Attack; The Healthy Heart Program; and Take Heart.
Over a period of four decades, in recognition of his endeavours, Dr. Kavanagh received countless prestigious honours and awards from organizations such as the American Heart Association, the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Medicine, the Canadian Cardiovascular Society and the American College of Sports Medicine.
In 2003, Terry was honoured by the University of Toronto, which conferred on him the degree of Doctor of Science, honoris causa, in recognition of his contributions. In 2006, he also received "The Living Legend" award from the World Society of Cardiothoracic Surgeons and, in 2013, on the occasion of the 150th Anniversary of Bayer Inc., Terry received an award as an outstanding Canadian, for his exceptional contributions to science and innovation in Canada.
Terry is survived by his loving wife, Johanna, as well as numerous nieces and nephews in England, the United States and Canada, and dear cousins in Australia.
Cremation has taken place and a celebration of his life will be held on Thursday, October 4 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mount Pleasant Funeral Centre (w w w. m o u n t p l e a s a n t g r o u p.
com). Visitation will be held on Wednesday, October 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at the same location.
Those wishing to honour Terry's memory are encouraged to make a donation to the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada for "The Dr. Terry Kavanagh Heart Health Laboratory" at the University of Toronto (http://www.cardiachealth.ca).
HOWARD WILLIAM MACDONALD
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Howard William MacDonald, P. Eng., on June 14, 2018 in Toronto, Ontario. Howard passed away peacefully surrounded by family after a short battle with cancer.
Howard was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia on April 7, 1950, the fourth child of fifteen children to Daniel and Pearl (Bouchie) MacDonald. Howard attended Mulgrave Memorial School, St Francis Xavier University and Nova Scotia Technical College, graduating as a Chemical Engineer. He went on to have a distinguished career as a Petroleum Engineer spanning over 40 years, and working in over 10 countries internationally.

BERNICE ELIZABETH MANSON (Bern)
On July 24, 2018, aged 95, in Victoria, BC. Bern is survived by her son, Garth (Margaret Fisher); and sister, Shirley Haughey (Stan). She was predeceased by her husband of 73 years, Russell; and her son, Greg (Angela van Barneveld). She also leaves her sister-in-law, Shirley Phizacklea of Winnipeg; and several nieces and nephews in Canada and the US.
Born in Winnipeg, Bern married Russ, her high school sweetheart, in 1943 following his return from active duty overseas as an RCAF bomber pilot. They spent the remaining war years traipsing around air force bases in western Canada where Russ served as an instructor with the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan and Bern spent many sometimes lonely hours becoming adept at solitaire and card shuffling.
After the war, Russ stayed in the service and Bern embarked fully on the life of a military wife of the time, raising baby-boomer children and holding down the home front through Russ's postings to various military facilities across Canada, to Texas, to the Egyptian Sinai with UNEF peacekeeping operations (Bern and children stayed in Canada for that one), to Italy for three years as Canada's military attaché (where Bern added diplomatic hostessing to her résumé), and back and forth to Canadian Forces HQ at Ottawa. As well, she worked for a number of years for the Canadian Medical Protective Society and several doctors as a medical secretary.
Following their retirement in 1975, Bern and Russ moved to Victoria where they spent some years managing a small sweet shop before giving it up to focus on long walks, travel, bridge games, golf (mostly for him) and the company of friends and other retired military couples. Bern enjoyed those years, although they were occasionally marred by her struggles with depression. As time went on, she coped with the onset of Parkinson's along with the many challenges associated with advancing age.
The family is grateful to all those who provided caring and compassionate support to Bern in her later years, especially her long-time friend Maria Barter, Lesley Blackman, and everyone at Estevan Pharmacy, the caregivers from Home Instead (many of whom became real friends over the years), Dr. Malcolm Orr, Drs. Ted Rosenberg and Fiona Manning and their colleagues at Home Team Medical Services, and Dr. Konia Trouton and her staff. A special thanks to the management, staff and residents of Shannon Oaks, her home with Russ for eight years, and of Sunrise Senior Living, where Bern resided for the last months of her life.
A loving wife and mother, Bern was a gentle, quiet soul who observed with resigned good humour the effects of age and infirmity on her independence and privacy, and was not distressed at the prospect of it all ending. In keeping with her wishes, there was no visitation or service.
Cremation has taken place and her ashes interred with Russ's at Royal Oak Burial Park in Victoria. For those wishing, donations to their preferred charity are appreciated.
ALLAN JAMES McCREADY
Passed away at home in Port Hope on Saturday, September 8, 2018. Allan beloved husband of Margaret.
Dear father of Helen (Jason Firing) and Julie (Forbes Silverthorne). Loving grandfather of Ruben Firing and Kate Silverthorne.
A celebration of Allan's life will be held at the Beamish House, 27 John Street, Port Hope, Saturday, September 22 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. If desired, memorial contributions may be made by cheque to the Canadian Cancer Society or Peterborough Regional Health Care Foundation - Dialysis Unit.
JESSIE JEANNETTE MCCULLOUGH (née Langford) 1931 - 2018
We sadly announce that our beloved Jessie went home to heaven quite suddenly and painlessly on Tuesday afternoon, September 11, 2018. She had suffered from dementia for five years, but otherwise was healthy.
Her husband of 64 years, Fred; son, Tom (Karen); grandchildren, Kate and Ben (Miranda Crocket); and sisters, Marie Wilson and Isabel (Ray) Unger will miss her dearly.
Born and raised in Ottawa, Jessie studied to be a teacher and taught kindergarten with the then Toronto Board of Education. As a young mother, she led neighbourhood children's programs with CEF Ontario, and trained other leaders. Later, Jessie formed her own business, Complements, designing "permanent" flower arrangements for corporate and retail clients.
Jessie was deeply committed to her Lord, and very involved over the years at Pine Grove Meeting in Woodbridge, Hilltop Chapel in Etobicoke and Erindale Bible Chapel in Mississauga.
Jessie contributed her artistic and hospitality gifts in many ways at home, in church, and with Christian Women's Club. She was generous, gracious, enthusiastic and kind to all she met. Many will remember gatherings in the McCulloughs' backyard, playing games on the lawn, swimming in the pool and eating homebaked treats, with Jessie in the background making it all happen, and making it all look so effortless.
Jessie was a fabulous grandmother to Kate and Ben.
Always turned out so beautifully, she still didn't hesitate to get down on the floor to play, or dig in the dirt in the garden, or even to jump in the balls at McDonald's with her grandkids! She instilled a sense of "can do" fun and adventure in her grandchildren, and demonstrated to them and everyone a life of humble and sincere faith and service in God.
Jessie and Fred were as close as a couple could be. They had good friends and a close family and, together, were a blessing to many people over the years.
Six years ago, they moved into the Village of Humber Heights retirement home, where they have experienced the love and admiration of staff and residents alike. The staff of the Memory Care neighbourhood have been especially remarkable in their tireless care and dignity shown to Jessie and Fred. The family is very grateful for this indeed.
A service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 4th at Bloor West Village Baptist Church (293 South Kingsway, Toronto). Please visit the website of Turner & Porter Funeral Homes http://www.turnerporter.ca/memorials for memories and an opportunity to share.
JANE J. McLEOD
87 years old Died peacefully on September 10, 2018 at Wellesley Central Place. She is survived by her devoted husband of 68 years, Ian ("Jock") McLeod; her daughters, Kim and Laurie; and her grandchildren, Caitlin Axelrod-McLeod, Nicholas Axelrod-McLeod and Javier McLeod.
A celebration of Janie's life will follow at a later date. Her entire family extends their deepest gratitude to her longterm caregivers Lalaine De Vera, Grace Francisco, Villaflor Cruz and all her other private caregivers and the staff at Wellesley Central Place.
MARLENE ISOBEL MOFFATT (nee Agar) 1932 - 2018
Marlene passed away peacefully at Kingston General Hospital on September 6, 2018. She was predeceased by her father, Stan; mother, Isobel; stepmother, Violet; and brothers, Bill and Bob. Left to remember her with deepest love are her husband, Craig; son, Cam (Sera); daughter, Stacie Stanton (Ray); and grandchildren, Will, Meg, Connor, Jane and Isabella.
Marlene was born in Hamilton, but her mother died when Marlene was six years old, shortly after the family had moved to Gananoque. Her father, Stan Agar, remarried and Marlene spent the rest of her childhood years in Gan. She did well in school and developed secretarial skills which stood her in good stead for the rest of her life. It was while serving in that capacity at the Royal Military College in 1954 that she met a fourth year cadet, Craig Moffatt. It was love at first sight, and they were married in 1956, a bond of caring and companionship that endured for 62 years. Several years later they moved to Boston, where Marlene continued as a secretary at MIT, but after the birth of their first child, Cam, she retired and became a full-time loving mother.
By 1966, they were a family of four, and returned to Kingston, ON. While always dedicated to the family, as the children grew older, Marlene offered her time and secretarial skills to several charitable organizations, most notably the Canadian Diabetes Association. Her personal and entrepreneurial interests expanded - she took up rug braiding, brass rubbing (forming Tudor Images as a business for selling her works), willingly assisted in neighbourhood yard sales, and spent countless hours assisting charities in selling their used clothing and household items.
Marlene was always eager to expand her knowledge and life experience. Whether it was a three-month camping trip to Europe in 1961 (including Berlin just before the Wall was built), a year in Brussels in the late '70s along with her then teen-age children or a year in Australia in the mid '90s, her response was always totally positive with a willingness to do everything she could to make the adventure a memorable success. Many subsequent ocean cruises added to a total of over 50 countries she and Craig visited. For more than 40 years she and Craig sailed Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River during the summer months, often with family and friends, and spent countless days and nights securely berthed on their Dock Island, in the heart of the Thousand Islands.
Marlene was always a dedicated sailor, extending her duties and commitment from the galley to the foredeck and the helm.
Cremation has taken place. A celebration of her life will be held in the chapel at James Reid Funeral Home, 1900 John Counter Blvd. on Wednesday, September 19 at 2:00 p.m., followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Diabetes Canada or a charity of choice would be appreciated.
DIANA JOSEPHINE O'CALLAGHAN September 14, 1923 - September 8, 2018
One week shy of her 95th birthday, Diana chose to have her celebratory martini in Heaven.
Known for her warmth, kindness and grace, Diana made everyone she met, across all generations, feel loved, accepted and welcomed into her life. A woman ahead of her time, she was open, accepting and never judging, but instead simply got to know people with a genuine curiosity and care.
Everyone would agree that Diana's sense of humor was marvelous; it was full of wit, intelligence and a fun feistiness that always made us laugh. Never afraid to speak her mind and courageous in doing so, people always listened with deep respect and admiration.
Born and raised in Victoria and lived in Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver, Diana was always up for an adventure and loved to travel globally with friends and family. Her favorite place of all was Chilliwack Lake where she would sit on the dock surrounded by love and take in the sunshine with a hot cappuccino.
Diana was predeceased by the love of her life, Robert Boultbee O'Callaghan; and her sister Sheila Moilliet. She is survived by sons, Robert and Patrick; and daughter, Jane O'Callaghan (Linda Tarrant); daughters-in-law Shelley O'Callaghan and Rosie Jo O'Callaghan; grandchildren, Kevin (Joanna), Michael (Molly), Jessica (Brian) and Rob (Erica); and greatgrandchildren, Nora, Bronwen, Fiona, Finlay, Roger, William, Keely, Camryn and Lucas.
Until the moment she peacefully passed, Diana led her life with extraordinary vibrancy, dignity and bravery. She truly was a matriarch and set a shining example for her progeny who will carry on and honor her beautiful spirit.
Services will be held: Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 12:00 noon.
St Francis in the Woods, 4773 South Piccadilly Rd., West Vancouver, BC, V7W 1J8 Reception at St Francis to follow the service.
In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to the BC Cancer Foundation (686 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1G1.) on Diana O'Callaghan's behalf.
JOSEPH (JOSIP) PAJOVIC "Puba" March 16, 1937 - October 31, 2017
Passed away at age 80 at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.
He was cared for by the doctors and nurses for which I am extremely grateful. I am missing him ever since he left me after fifty years of our married life. My wounded heart will never properly heal, and my soul will always be with him. He is survived by his wife, Neda ("Mikica"). According to his wishes a private interment will be held at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery and will be led by Father Mladen Horvat of Our Lady Queen of Croatia Church.
D. JANE POOLER (nee Glenny)
Died peacefully at North York General Hospital, Toronto on Monday, September 10, 2018 at the age of 92.
Predeceased by her beloved husband, Ted. Survived by Ted's children, Bruce (Katharine) and Janet Louvel (George) and grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Dr. Andrew Glenny (Susan); his children, Robert (Lucinda), Martha McElweenie (Steve), Andrew, and Beth (David Parker), and their children.
Jane's early career as an occupational therapist was very important to her, enabling WWII veterans to lead happy and productive lives, and she formed long lasting friendships with a number of them. Jane and Ted travelled extensively and had many adventures. During this time Jane developed her artistic skills with wonderful watercolour paintings which she shared with family and friends. She had great fashion sense, and was a lover of opera, ballet, theatre and golf.
She was fortunate and very appreciative to have had the companionship and support of her nephew, Robert and her cousin, Mary Elizabeth Harris, after Ted passed away. Jane's family is very appreciative of the caring shown by the physicians and staff at the North York General Hospital.
Private family arrangements.

It is with great sadness but with gratitude for a life well lived that the family announce the peaceful passing of Bob on September 7, 2018 in Toronto.
Bob is survived by his beloved wife, Brenda Taylor; dearly loved children, Paul (Christina) and Katherine (Colin); grandson, Hunter Christian; sister, Dorothy; and his nieces and nephews, Angela, Sandy, Pam, and Jamie. Born to immigrant parents, Bob's humble beginnings on a farm in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia formed the foundation of his strong character. After graduating from Dalhousie with a B.Sc. and B.Eng.,
Bob moved to Montreal where he studied at McGill and obtained his Chartered Accountant designation. Ultimately, Bob returned to Nova Scotia and started a family with the late Dr. Irene Szuler. He had an accomplished career at KPMG, including being Managing Partner Halifax/Atlantic Region, and later served as President of Eastlink. Never fully retiring, Bob pursued numerous entrepreneurial endeavours and was active on many Boards including The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Dalhousie University, IMP, Farmer's Dairy Co-operative, Halifax Chamber of Commerce, Halifax Water Commission, and Voluntary Planning of Nova Scotia. A firm believer in continuous education he completed the Directors Education Program at the University of Toronto Rotman School of Management in 2010. Bob's love for Brenda led him to Toronto and then to the United Kingdom.
Together they shared a passion for travel, adventure, entertaining and theatre. Bob will be remembered most as someone who inspired. A man who lived every day with optimism, listened first, and regardless of the challenges he faced was guided by his unwavering concern for others and love for his family. The family expresses heartfelt gratitude to Bob's medical team for their care and friendship, specifically his incredible GP, Dr Sam Tirkos; at Princess Margaret Hospital, Dr Monika Krzyzanowska and her oncology team, along with Dr Madeline Li and Dr Joshua Wales; at Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr Erin Kennedy; and from ParaMed, Sherry Lodge. Thank you also to Filomena Servidiao-Italiano of Colorectal Cancer Canada for her advocacy and support. A celebration of life will be held on September 23, 2018 from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. at the Lord Nelson, 1515 South Park St., Halifax, Nova Scotia. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to Colorectal Cancer Canada. All donations made in Bob's memory will be directed to their Never Too Young Program.

Who died in Toronto on September 5, 2018 at the age of 43, wore many hats-literally. An assortment of beautiful headgear for all occasions filled half her room-sized closet; her fabulous vintage dresses the other half. The rest of her home was taken up by art and by books, many her own. Priscila was the author of 10 books of poetry, including the Griffin Poetry Prize-nominated Ontological Necessities, two novels, a short story collection, a memoir, two plays, as well as the editor of several anthologies. Her memoir, Projection: Encounters with my Runaway Mother, was nominated for a Governor General's Award and the Hillary Weston Prize for Non-Fiction. Her selected poems, Successful Tragedies: Poems 1998-2010, was published in the U.K. in 2010, and Time Out London has called her "Canada's coolest poet." At the time of her death, another book of poetry, On Second Thought, two more plays, and Another Dysfunctional Cancer Anthology, edited by her and Meaghan Strimas, were in production, and a book of her last stories will follow. No wonder Priscila's favourite footwear was running shoes (often worn with one of her glamorous dresses). Canada's official Olympic poet and stellar 5-K runner was a super-athlete in the literary world as well.
She turned her cancer into art, including poems and her play What Linda Said, with her characteristic honesty and darkly comic vision, and took up karaoke to heal her lungs with music. Priscila was one of the youngest tenured professors in Canada at York University, where she taught English and Creative Writing. She was the kindest, most dedicated mentor a young writer-or any writer-could have, and the literary legacy she leaves behind is not just her own, but all the work she has inspired and pushed others to create. Priscila loved her family, given and chosen, with all her heart, and we loved her back. She leaves her father, Avtar; brother, Jit and sister-in-law, Jen; nephews, Emmitt and Hunter; chosen mother, Toni; long-time partner, Chris; her beloved cat, Ovid, whose brother, Vergil, died the same day as Priscila; and the many, many others who were her family. We miss her terribly. Life was Priscila's greatest love, and she taught the rest of us how to embrace it. In one of her last poems, she wrote: Because my heart has not had its fill./Because I won't waste a single, glorious, precious day. Promise.

DAV I D F R E D E R I C K W H I T E
It is with great sadness the family announces David Frederick White, passed away peacefully in Dartmouth, NS on Monday, September 10, in his 84th year, from complications of Multiple Sclerosis. David devoted his career to helping others. He was a graduate of the University of Western Ontario Medical School and both practiced medicine and taught in London, Halifax, and Saskatoon. After residency, he followed his heart to London, England, young family in tow, to specialize in oncology and hematology. David returned to Canada and became the Senior Medical Oncologist at Victoria Hospital in London. He then became the head of Medical Oncology for the Nova Scotia Cancer Treatment & Research Foundation. He was subsequently recruited to open the new cancer clinic in Saskatchewan and became the Medical Director of the Saskatchewan Cancer Foundation.
David practiced, published and lectured on the difficult subject of cancer at a time when research was formative. David was an avid sailor, and loved cooking and the daily crossword. He took pride in his children's accomplishments and grandchildren's milestones, reveling in his role as "Papa" to Taylor and Hannah. His retirement to Mahone Bay with Pat allowed him to set sail from his doorstep in his cherished Minuet which took him on many adventures including challenging the tides of the Bay of Fundy. A feat which made him a minor celebrity with the local coast guard. With his wife, Pat and two girls, David enjoyed exploring the world. Always a curious mind, wandering around Cartagena or Bethlehem seemed a normal family vacation. David enjoyed being with his family on vacations where he took charge of all the cooking and his children's entertainment with delight. After Pat's death he married Wilma and enjoyed many more years of traveling and great food and life by the sea as he loved. Predeceased by his beloved wife, Patricia (nee Pollard), he will be deeply missed by his daughters, Andrea (Brian Koturbash) and Heather (Jim Janzen); grandchildren,
Taylor and Hannah; sister, Mary Airth Kindree, as well as his wife, Wilma (Stewart). David's strength of character will in death, as in life, serve as an important resource for the family. The family wish to thank the staff of Lewis Hall, Parkland at the Lakes for their exemplary care. A service is planned for October 13, 2018 at 11:30a.m. followed by a reception immediately thereafter at the Kilworth United Church, just outside of London, ON where David was a devoted member. A Further Memorial Service Is Planned In Mahone Bay In The Summer Of 2019. In Keeping With David'S Service And devotion to the cause of curing cancer, consider a donation, in lieu of flowers, to The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation or Trinity United Church, Mahone Bay. Cremation and arrangements entrusted to the care of Mahone Funeral Home, P.O. Box 200, 32 Parish St., Mahone Bay, NS B0J 2E0 (902-624-8241).
