JOSEPH PAUL CHERTKOW 1953 - 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected death of Joseph Chertkow on July 9, 2018 in Toronto. Joe was a devoted and loving son to his mother, Evelyn, and his father, Gerald, who predeceased him in 2013. He is survived by his son, Daniel, whom he adored; and by his beloved friend, Marie Natanson, whose support and kindness has been unfailing.
He leaves behind a family shocked and heartbroken by his loss, including loving younger siblings, Howard (Ann) and Patricia (Robert); and many nieces, nephews, and cousins whom he cherished. Joe grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and London, Ontario, graduating from the University of Western Ontario's Faculty of Law in 1975 with a Bachelor of Law (LL.B) and some of the highest marks ever awarded in the school's history. He obtained an LL.M. in 1976 from the London School of Economics and Political Science and entered the Faculty of Law of the University of British Columbia, before moving into the private sector. Joe worked as a legislation and policy consultant for London Life, Royal Trust and Royal Bank.
He then embarked on a third career as an international legal and regulatory expert, designing and drafting new legislative and regulatory frameworks for Asian banks in Vietnam, Mongolia, Cambodia and elsewhere.
Joe was an intense, erudite and brilliant man who was fiercely loyal and generous to those he loved. He was known and admired for his quirky wit, encyclopedic knowledge of rock trivia, passion for travel, and terrible Ed Sullivan impersonations.

CAROL ANN DOULOFF January 7, 1945 - July 7, 2018
Carol Douloff (neé Leacock) passed away on July 7th at Trillium Health Partners Mississauga Hospital at the age of 73 years. Her mother, Sarah; sister, Irene; and brother, William predeceased her. Her husband of 51 years, Nicholas; and her sons, Christopher (Ginny) and Aaron (Lisa); granddaughter, Jessica (Charles); great-grandchildren, Olivia and Maxwell; her sister-inlaw, Helen; her brother-in-law, Steve (Louise); and her nephew, Ryan and nieces, Debbie, Vicki, Judy, Joanne, Shannon, Nicole and Julia and their families, survive her.
Carol was born and raised in Toronto. After attending Humberside Collegiate Institute, she graduated from The Atkinson School of Nursing at Toronto Western Hospital in 1967. As a Registered Nurse, Carol went on to a 43-year, progressive career in nursing, which included the fields of oncology, cardiology, neurosurgery, palliative care and nursing management at the University Health Network, Cambridge Memorial and Trillium Health Partners hospitals. Carol was an energetic, knowledgeable, thoughtful and articulate practitioner whose curiosity in nursing practice and other subjects led her to complete Bachelor of Arts (Economics) and Master of Health Science degrees at the University of Toronto.
Carol's zest for life included a passion for travelling and gardening, which she shared with her family. During numerous vacations she and family travelled together in Canada, the USA, Mexico, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Her garden was a special place, where she not only planted flowers, to match each passing season, but also took time to relax there with a good book. Carol's family, friends and fellow health care practitioners will cherish memories of her cheerfulness, generosity, kindness, quiet humour and steadfast support.
Carol requested cremation and a private funeral service. A celebration of life is being planned.
Online condolences are available through http://www.turnerporter.ca.

KATHLEEN ELIZABETH BEAUMONT HILL
On June 27, 2018, Canada lost an amazing lady. "Katie" Hill, affectionately known as "The Pigeon" passed away peacefully, in her 90th year, surrounded by her family. Her death was preceded by that of her beloved husband, Jim, in 2014. They were a remarkable pair. She is survived by her brother, Henry Beaumont; her sons, Brian (Andrea), Ross (Jane); daughter, Nancy; and grandchildren, Natalie, Oscar, Beaumont, and Paloma. She was predeceased by her parents, Arthur and Ida Beaumont; and her sister, Ellen Cherry.
Born in Ponoka, and raised in Lethbridge, Alberta, Katie attended high school at Qu'Appelle Diosesan School For Girls in Regina. That boarding school experience had a profound positive influence upon her. For the rest of her adult life she made the Hill family home, "the Hill Hilton," a place of loving welcome to their friends, her children's friends, relatives, and many Mexican students.
She graduated from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, as did all three of her children. She never forgot her amazing Queen's experience.
She became one of its most active supporters, particularly as a recruiter par excellence. Katie regularly hosted events to encourage young potential students to make the long trek across the country to her Alma Mater. Years later, the "Kathleen Beaumont Hill Award" was established in her honour. It is bestowed annually on the most outstanding Queen's alumni from British Columbia based upon meaningful contribution to society and commitment to the University.
Katie loved her job working for Canadian Pacific Airlines, flying to northern B.C. and overseas, in the early 1950's. She later created what was to be her favourite job as a ground hostess at YVR before becoming the Vice President's Secretary.
Her volunteer work was an important part of her life. For years she was active with the Salvation Army canvassing persuasively, and encouraging others to do the same in the annual Red Shield appeal. Katie was a pillar of her church and volunteered for over 20 years at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
As a member of the Arbutus Club, she was a linchpin in the Walking Group, and later in the Aquafit programs encouraging members to participate. The annual Sun Run would inevitably see Katie, ready to participate with friends in tow.
For all of her successes and triumphs, Katie was proudest of her own family. She always made time to drive the kids anywhere and provide a meal with a smile on her face and never a complaint. Her fierce loyalty and strength of character built three strong willed and independent children.
Her commitment and dedication to the business provided a foundation of support to help build the family business into what it is today.
Katie and Jim raised Brian, Ross, and Nancy to be a reflection of all they believed in, and were enriched and rewarded in their grandchildren, Natalie, Oscar, Beau, and Paloma.
Radiantly beautiful in her trademark pink lipstick, Katie was a renowned hostess, enjoying dinners out with Jim at Il Giardino every Friday night and hosting their annual New Year's Eve and summer parties.
Mother, counsellor, mentor, beloved friend, Katie left a legacy for all of us in how to be a good citizen. She will never be forgotten.
A special thank you to Rudy Svarovsky and to her dedicated caregivers Perlita Dadbe, Lillian Tanoja, and Helen Werry.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. at St. Mary's Church, 2490 W.
37th, Vancouver on Wednesday, August 29, 2018.

ALARICH VON EPPINGHOVEN "Al" June 20, 1930 - July 5, 2018
Passed away peacefully at Wesburn Manor with his sons, Armin and Ralph, at his side after a long battle with Ataxia. Alarich (Al) was born in Arusha, Tanganyika (Tanzania), Africa at his parent's coffee plantation. Life in Africa had a number of challenges including the loss of Al's twin brother, Jurgen, at age 5 and culminating with the loss of the plantation and detention in an internment camp for the duration of the Second World War. Returning to Germany in 1948, Al felt his best opportunity was to start a new life in Canada and he emigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1956.
Al had a great aptitude for mechanical assembly and he started a life-long career in the Millwright Union Local # 2309 in 1958. Al worked on a number of landmark construction projects over his career including the original TD Tower in Toronto, Ford Assembly Plant in Oakville, the Pickering Nuclear generating station, and the St. Mary's Cement plant in Bowmanville.
In 1959, Al met Anni (Ziggert) and they enjoyed the nightlife in Toronto, including a number of visits to the El Mocambo night club which is still in existence today. They married in 1960, and the birth of the 'twin boys,' Armin and Ralph, soon followed and this started their adventures in parenting. Both Anni and Al understood the benefits of hard work and hands-on parenting and a number of fantastic family memories were forged around camping trips, overloading the boat trailer, driving back and forth from Blue Mountain and the famous 'throwing of the tools' followed by innovative swear words during family fix-it projects. Throughout it all, Al maintained his great sense of humour. For Anni and Al, their proudest moment was the graduation of both Ralph and Armin from University of Toronto Electrical Engineering in 1983.
With the departure of 'the boys' after graduation, Al and Anni spent more time playing tennis and travelling. Anni passed away in 1991, and Al was lucky to meet Norah McLoughlin in 1995 and she became his partner for the next 20 years during which time they travelled the globe including Europe, Africa, Australia and North America. The arrival of the three grandkids, Konrad, Derek, and Alexander, gave Al the opportunity to showcase some of his skills in building birdhouses, flower planters and fixing lawnmowers, much to the amusement of the grandkids.
Unfortunately, by the late 1990's Al began to notice a deterioration in his physical condition and he was diagnosed with Ataxia. He continued to live on his own after Norah passed away in 2016, however, his condition required the move to Wesburn Manor in early 2018. Many thanks to the staff of both Thornbrook Homecare and Wesburn Manor for their patience and compassion over the last months of Al's life.
Al is survived by his sons, Ralph and Armin (Peri Schleining); and his grandchildren, Konrad, Derek, and Alexander. He will also be missed by his cousin, Helga Cathrein, and her family in California.
The family is holding a private service. If friends desire, memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Online condolences may be made through http://www.turnerporter.ca.
Marion Jean Woodman (nee Boa) died peacefully July 9, 2018 at Mount Hope Centre for Long Term Care, London. Marion was born August 15, 1928, in London, Ontario.
Marion studied at the University of Western Ontario, and taught English for more than twenty years at South Collegiate Institute in London, Ontario, where she taught poetry and drama. Her theatre productions at South have become the stuff of legend, and through them she transformed countless students' lives.
In the early 1970s, Marion began analysis with Dr. E. A. Bennett in London, England, which inspired her to train as an analyst with Barbara Hannah at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich. After receiving her Diploma in 1979, Marion opened a practice in Toronto. Her first manuscripts, published by Daryl Sharp with Inner City Books, became bestsellers and pioneered subsequent work on the feminine, addiction, and the relationship between body and mind. She taught and lectured on this work to students and audiences worldwide. With Ann Skinner and Mary Hamilton she developed her BodySoul workshops, which they taught internationally. Along with her brother, Fraser Boa, she was one of the founders of The Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts (OAJA). Her many books have been published worldwide and translated into multiple languages.
Marion was predeceased by her husband, Ross Greig Woodman, Professor Emeritus in the Department of English at the University of Western Ontario; her father and mother, Rev.
Andrew D. Boa and Ila J. Phinn; and brothers, Bruce, a Canadian and British actor, and Fraser, a Jungian analyst. Marion is survived by nieces and nephews, David and Janet, Luke and Robyn, Marion, Paul and Kathryn, Quint and Karen, Shelley, and Siobhan and Jacques; great nieces and nephews, Aidan, Anouk, Connor, two Ellas, Emma, Finlay, Loveday, Marlow, Marion, and Sam.
Visitation is at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London on Sunday, July 15, from 2-4 p.m. The family wishes to thank the staff of the Mount Hope facility for the loving and compassionate care Marion received. In honour of Marion, please donate to the charity of your choice.
