Of Toronto, Ontario passed away on December 11, 2017 after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson's Disease, at the age of 92. Margery was born in Toronto on May 15, 1925 to Flora and Harvey Dodds. After graduating from Branksome Hall Girls School in 1943, Marnie worked for a numbers of years at McLean Hunter Publishing. In 1946, Marnie married Archibald Gardner and immediately started raising a family of three boys.

Archie and Marnie were married for 27 years. Following Archie's death, Marnie remarried and enjoyed over 30 years of life with Allan McCall of London, Ontario.

Marnie was predeceased by Archibald Gardner, Allan McCall and stepsister, Lorna Linklater; deeply loved and sadly missed by her sister, Shirley (Saylor); sons, Cameron (Judy), Ian (Sam) and Allan (Cathy); grandchildren, Charles, Christa, Taegan, Tyler, Cameron and Wesley; greatgrandchildren, Ruby, Cole and Jacob; step family, Brian McCall (Jane) and Dr. Marnie McCall (Ken); step-grandchildren, Megan, Andrew (Kirstin), Marnie and Duncan McCall.

While Marnie grew up and lived in Toronto and later in London, her true love was her Muskoka life! As a young girl she summered at Pinelands and then as an adult enjoyed her cottage on East Bay, Lake Muskoka and finally her home on Brandy Lake just outside of Port Carling. Her father started the first downhill ski manufacturing company in Canada, so it is no surprise that she was an enthusiastic and very good downhill skier - a passion she passed on to her three boys.

Marnie was also an avid and skilled gardener and an accomplished ornithologist who could easily identify a bird simply by listening to their song. She was deeply dedicated to her family, the arts she had to have her classical music on at all times - and nature above all. Her life was full of family and friends, time spent helping every one she touched feel welcome and loved and sharing her love of the wilderness.

A gathering to celebrate her life will be held with family and friends at Turner & Porter, Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane subway, on Friday, December 15, 2017 at 1 p.m., visitation one hour prior. A private family interment will follow at Park Lawn Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation to Nature Canada

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dearly loved father, Lino. He was at peace when he died after a short battle with cancer. He will be sorely missed by his son, Mark; and daughter, Marina; his loving granddaughter, Sophie; and dear partner, Robbie Shaw. In Italy and New York, his dear brothers, Carlo (Giuliana), Paolo (Lucy) and Sandro (Ada) and many cousins, nieces and nephews will miss him very much. He will also be missed by Paul Shaw, Danielle Carter, Terry Shaw, and Bill Klimowych; dear friends the Flaim family; Ian Russell (Bruna Nota); the Bellissimo family; former wife, Rosemary (nee MacLean); former son-in-law, John; and many acquaintances too numerous to name.

Born in Revò, Trentino, Italy, our Dad arrived in Canada by ship on his own in 1952 with one small suitcase and not knowing a word of English. Four years after arriving in Canada, he went on to pursue his degrees as a top student at UBC and U of T. It was at UBC where he met his lifelong friend and English professor Gordon R. Elliott. In addition to a successful career at Ontario Hydro supervising the design of computer controls for Ontario's Nuclear Power Stations and moving into Finance before retirement, he also devoted his time and energy to volunteering because of his firm belief in social justice and his wish to help others.

In the late 60's he became friends and worked closely with The Right Honorable Charles Caccia, MP for Davenport. He then became the President of COSTIIIAS Immigrant Services for 10 years, the founder and first Vice President of the National Congress of Italian-Canadians, and former Vice Chairman of the Canadian Consultative Council on Multiculturalism.

After 20 years on the Senate and the Board of Directors of York University, he remains an Honorary Member of its Board.

He was a Member of the Board of the United Way GTA, Ontario March of Dimes, and Member of the Ontario Council of University Affairs. In 1988, he became a Member of the Order of Canada and also received the Golden and Diamond Jubilee medals.

Dad also had a love for poetry and of the arts spending many days reading, attending music concerts, galleries, theatre and opera with Robbie. Having grown up in a valley of the Alps, this instilled a lifelong love of mountain hiking, hiking on the Bruce Trail and the beauty of nature.

In his memory, donations to Music Toronto or Anishnawbe Health would be appreciated. At our Dad's request there will be no service. Our thanks go out to the doctors and nurses at Trillium Health Partners, Mississauga for their help, care and dedication.

"Candy" August 2, 1937 Odder, Denmark December 8, 2017 Calgary, Alberta

On December 8, 2017, Eleanor "Candy" D. Pierce passed away in Calgary at 80 years of age.

Cherished wife and best friend of Robert "Bob" L. Pierce (d. 2012); beloved mother of Greg (d. 1975), Brad, Jennifer (Ross Wonnick) and Susannah (Peter Gibson); and proud and dotting Gammy to Ben, Jake, Robert, Gabriela, Charlotte and Harrison.

Candy will be remembered for her glamour, creativity, lust for life, and fabulous parties in the Bahamas, Mexico and especially her Calgary Stampede parties which included live music, balloon rides, goat milking contests, panning for gold, and pig in pipe races. A professional entertainer before marrying her husband Bob, she was not shy to pick up a microphone and entertain friends if a live band was playing. She was also a generous patron of a number of charities including the Salvation Army, the University of Saskatchewan School of Law, Easter Seals, Silver Linings, and Valour Canada.

Born in Odder, Denmark, her family immigrated to Canada in 1939 when she was two years old.

They settled in Brantford, ON.

Candy was a registered nurse by profession. While nursing and raising two small sons as a single mother, she also had a successful professional singing career under the names of "Candy Hansen" and "Diamond Lil" during the 1960s. After marrying Bob, she moved west; first to Regina and then on to Calgary in 1973 where they continued their love affair and raised their family. Candy was most proud of her family.

Amazingly strong and resilient, Candy survived the death of her eldest child, the loss of the love of her life, and a rare form of cancer.

Her family thanks all the medical professionals, caregivers and friends that supported and cared for Candy over the last several years. Without their help, Candy wouldn't have been able to travel the world, see her grandchildren grow, and live life as she wanted.

Candy's life will be celebrated at a private service in accordance with her wishes at the family's home Sunday, December 17, 2017. Condolences may be forwarded through
