DR. WILLIAM DAVIDSON (Bill)
1930 - 2 018 After a full and wonderful life, Bill left us on September 14, 2018 after a brief illness surrounded by his loving family.
Bill grew up in Glasgow, Scotland with his six siblings. In his youth, he served in the British army as a radio mechanic in Singapore.
After his tour, he returned to Scotland and graduated from medical school at the University of Glasgow. He ended up in Canada via Carbonear, Newfoundland as a General Practitioner. In 1962, he arrived at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto where he worked as a paediatric intern and then Chief Resident, eventually earning his Fellowship in Paediatrics. In 1972, Bill served as a paediatric volunteer doctor in the Vietnam War caring for orphans.
Back in Toronto, Bill started his own paediatric medical practice in the mid-70s. He also worked in Dr. Norman Epstein's allergy office and was on the neonatology clinic staff at St. Michael's Hospital.
An incredible 50 plus career in medicine and paediatrics.
An extremely proud Scot, Bill was an avid, competitive sailor out of the National Yacht Club (known best for Gunboat), a reckless skier at Craigleith Ski Club, a lover of fast cars, and a Sudoku and Jeopardy expert. A Medical Officer for the 48th Highlanders and a beloved member of the Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir, Bill was also an exceptional story teller with a wry sense of humour. He was unapologetically unique and remarkable in his individuality.
Bill met his wife, Pat, a paediatric nurse, during a lumbar puncture on a baby in the infectious ward at SickKids. Normally an intern would leave immediately to let the nurse comfort and settle the baby. After the procedure, Bill held and comforted the baby until the crying stopped.
Pat sensed that this doctor was an exceptional man - and the rest is history! Loved by many others including his daughter, Katherine Kennedy (Peter); stepdaughters, Linton Carter (James Darling) and Sarah Carter; siblings, Helen Wylie (Bill), Margot Barrie (John), Peter Davidson, Bobby Davidson (Janice), Kenneth Davidson (Patsy), and Jim Davidson (Marion).
Grandpa to Colin, Bridget, Georgia, Samantha, Alex, Ella, Oscar, Isidor, and Kara. Adored by another 10 nieces and nephews, their 20 kids, and the thousands of children he cared for as a pediatrician from the mid-1960s until six days prior to his passing.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial gathering for drinks and desserts will be held at the University of Toronto Faculty Club, 41 Willcocks Street, Toronto on October 1, 2018 at 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to SickKids Foundation http:// m y. s i c k k i d s d o n a t i o n s . co m / BillDavidson

MARY ELIZABETH HARDIE
November 5, 1920 - September 13, 2018
Quietly, after a short illness, Mary passed away at Dorothy Ley Hospice in Toronto, in her ninetyeighth year. Beloved wife of the late Col. Robert Gellatly Hardie, and much loved mother of the late James (Barbara), Catherine and Peter (Brenda). Adored grandmother of five, and soonto-be great-grandmother of one.
Youngest daughter of Frances Violet Collier and James Gauldie, and sister to the late Donald Gauldie, the late Nancy Stewart and the late Winifred Scollard.
Dear sister-in-law of the late Betty Hardie.
Known as 'Mimi' to most, she was a keen reader, enthusiastic gardener, and completed cryptic crosswords well into her nineties.
She and Bob, married for fiftysix years, made a wonderful team. Their life together was full of travel, good friends, and countless Sunday evening dinners with family, in the back garden and at the cottage. Mimi's warmth and quiet wisdom endeared her to everyone she met; her absence will be felt not just by family, but by all the friends - young and old - who came to know her through the years.
Thank you to all those who provided compassionate care to Mary in her final weeks.
Friends are invited to join the family for a funeral service at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19th at St. George'son-the-Hill Anglican Church, 4600 Dundas St. W., Toronto.
The sadness of our loss is immeasurable, but we take comfort in the legacy of kindness and generosity Mary leaves.
She was our most lovely Mimi, our one-of-a-kind, and a truly special soul.
Arrangements entrusted to Turner & Porter Butler Chapel 416-231-2283.

GERALDINE JOAN HEFFERNAN
February 3, 1923 September 15, 2018 Geraldine Joan Heffernan (95), loving wife of Gerald, passed away peacefully at home on September 15, 2018.
Geraldine (nee O'Leary) grew up in the Parkdale neighbourhood of Toronto. Gerald met "the girl with the curly hair, big smile and a serious love of books" on a blind date in 1938, sparking an 80 year-long romance. Together they enjoyed a variety of activities including dancing, skiing, golfing, tennis and reading.
Geraldine graduated from U of T with a degree in physiotherapy during WWII. The Gerrys married in 1943. As Gerald pursued his career, first in Vancouver then in Edmonton and Toronto, Geraldine took on the challenging task of raising eight children while pursuing her academic interests, completing an honors BA in history at U of T in 1970.
Geraldine was predeceased by her daughter Shelagh. She leaves Gerald and her children, Joe (Marie), Mary Clare, Mark, Helen, Tracy, Teresa and Virginia (Roger); and son-in-law, Peter Sinclair.
She is fondly remembered by her eight grandchildren, Blake, Siobhan, Spencer, Madeleine, Emma, Yasch, Graham and Danaé; and great-grandchildren, Soleil and Cillian.
A special thank you to Eunie Arevalo and her supportive team of caregivers for their compassion, diligence and devotion during Geraldine's final years.
The family will preside at a private burial.

BARBARA DÉSIRÉE MILLS
(nee Conway) March 28, 1922 - September 8, 2018 Our dear mother passed away peacefully in her sleep in her 97th year, at home in her retirement residence. She had lived a full life, and after a pleasant evening with Judith watching Nadal play tennis (her favourite next to Federer), she slipped away in the wee hours of Saturday morning.
She was predeceased by her husband of 53 years, John Mills; her brother, Abbott Conway; sister, Helen O'Connor; parents, Jennie and Worrell Conway; and her good friend, Bill Macdonald.
Barbara leaves her children, Jennifer, Judith, Terry and Megan; grandchildren, Alex Sayers, Michael Campbell, Mary Claire Mills and John Mills; and greatgrandchildren, Elsie, Arlo, Lola, Judith and Lane.
Mom was born and grew up in Huntsville with a vivid appreciation of the woods and lakes, and could identify the calls of all the birds.
She would often talk about her favourite activities, tennis, skiing, and the summers at Norway Point, Lake of Bays in the days of steamships and the portage railway. Those now distant times wove through the depression and into the war, and after studying Fine Arts at Trinity College, U of T she joined the WRCNS and was stationed in Halifax. She had many stories from her time in the navy as a signaller sending messages to ships in the harbour.
She had the advantage that old friends arriving in port could contact her directly from their ships to make plans for a party that evening. The Halifax riot at the end of the war was a most memorable experience. After the war, she married our father, John, had children and we eventually returned to live in Huntsville for some years. She was a wonderful and energetic mother who loved children, along with writing, painting, silversmithing, reading and horses which she effortlessly did all at once. In her eighties she wrote and illustrated two books based on her memories of her early life in Muskoka.
So here's to a life well lived. She was a true-heart and someone who loved a project. A special thank you to the staff at Balmoral Club who patiently provided care and support as her mobility became difficult.
A celebration of her life will take place at the Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles - Newbigging Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville Avenue) on Wednesday, September 26th at 1:00 p.m. followed by a reception.
If desired, donations to the Lake of Bays Heritage Foundation (P.O. Box 81, Baysville, ON, P0B 1A0) or charity of choice would be appreciated. Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through www.
Born July 10, 1932 and died peacefully at home on September 15, 2018 at the age of 86. Deeply loved and only child of Oliver Mills and Ethel Higham in Ashtonunder-Lyne, Lancashire, England.

He will also be greatly missed by the extended Spencer family and those close to him.
Donald was gifted with a brilliant mind which grew throughout his education at Manchester Grammar School, The University of Manchester, and University of Toronto where he earned a PhD in metallurgy. Don came to Canada in 1957 and worked at AECL and Ontario Hydro where he completed his career as the Director of Research. He loved racing cars, hockey, baseball, rugby, cooking, and good wine.
His favorite places were the cottage at Lake Nipissing, West Lake, and anniversaries each year in Barbados. His favorite quote is from Hamlet: Act 1, Scene 3, Lines 56 to 81.
We will gather to remember him on Friday, September 21, 2018 at 11 a.m. at St. Philip's Anglican Church, 31 St. Phillips Rd., Etobicoke. Refreshments will be served. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be considered to the Department of Anatomy at University of Toronto or a charity of your choice.

DAVID JOHN WRIGHT
1961 - 2018
With great sadness - and much gratitude for a life lived to the fullest - we grieve the passing of Dave Wright on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at the age of 56. He leaves behind his wife and soulmate of 32 years, Karen, and their daughters Shannon, Katie and Lindsay. Also mourning his loss are his sisters, (Karen Wright and Janet Wright); his motherin-law, (Roberta Vice); Karen's siblings and sister-in-law, (John and Debbie Vice, Cathy Smart); his many nieces and nephews, (Matt, Drew and Michelle, Sarah, Geoffrey and Stephen, Rachel and Tracy, Brendan and Conor) - and countless others who remember him as a trusted, generous, witty and loyal friend. Dave was predeceased by his parents, (Sondra and Allan Wright), and Karen's father, (David Vice).
Karen and Dave met in 1983 when they were both working at Peat Marwick in downtown Toronto. It was love at first sight, and they were engaged eleven months later. Their life together was built on love, shared values, a commitment to family, and a 'seize the day' mindset. They were supportive of each other in their respective careers, and over the years shared many adventures on the golf course, ski slopes and music halls. They considered themselves very fortunate to have had many wonderful friends, and appreciated that their life together was richer as a result.
First and foremost, Dave was a family man, cherishing his time with Karen and his three girls above all else. Many of the family's happiest times were spent at their cottage on Lake Joseph. It was here, away from phones and TV, that they shared many special moments including campfire singsongs, a love of reading and time on the water.
Dave especially enjoyed family dinners where he and Karen could simply sit and connect with the girls.
As Dave would say, his love for his girls was infinite. He led by example, and instilled in them the importance of honouring your commitments, and always giving your best in everything you did.
He was an eternal optimist, and saw every experience in life as a valuable teaching moment. He and Karen were tremendously proud of their daughters, empowering them to be or do whatever they chose.
Dave was born in Toronto, and graduated from Western in 1983 after studying business at the Ivey Business School. He joined Peat Marwick as an auditor, earning his CA in 1986. He moved on to a finance position at Nortel; during his two years with the company in Calgary, Dave and Karen made some lasting friendships and developed an affinity for the mountains. From Nortel, Dave moved to Microsoft holding Senior Leadership positions, and finally fulfilled his entrepreneurial desires in co-founding Agora Consulting Partners, a softwaredevelopment consulting firm in Toronto.
Dave was extremely generous with his time and expertise, never missing an opportunity to give back. He was an avid coach, serving on the boards of the North Toronto Basketball Association and the Lawrence Park Athletic Association. He mentored many young women, encouraging them to take up coaching and to give back. At Ivey, he was a pioneer on the entrepreneurship advisory board and its longestserving chairman. He will be remembered by the countless Ivey alumni who were fortunate enough to have him as a mentor, coach, judge or instructor.
Notwithstanding his many personal passions and professional accomplishments, Dave was humble and unassuming, always putting others before himself. He was kind, smart, generous and funny. We will miss him dearly, and his optimistic and gracious spirit will live on.
We are indebted to the talented team at Princess Margaret Hospital for the wonderful care Dave received throughout his cancer journey.
A celebration of Dave's life will be held at 4 p.m. on Friday, September 21 at The Concert Hall, 888 Yonge Street, Toronto.
Visitation prior at 3 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, a donation in Dave's name to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation (thepmcf.ca), or to Kidsport Ontario (kidsportcanada.ca/ ontario) would be appreciated.
