Obituary of ALBERT EDWIN SCHNELL, C.C.C., Hon. B.A.S.

Posted by on August 29, 2018

August 9, 1935 – August 23, 2018

With heavy hearts, we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our dear husband and father, Albert Edwin Schnell, at home at the age of 83. He was a gentle and loving pillar of strength and will be missed immensely by Rosmarie, his beloved wife of 57 years, son Andre, and daughter Marion. Albert was predeceased by his loving parents Paul and Franziska Schnell. He will be missed greatly by extended family in Switzerland including his dear brothers Paul (Erika) and Hans (Liselotte), brother-in-law Eugen (Christa), and nieces Daniela (Christian), Eliane (Markus), Carole (Rolf), Viviane, and their sons and daughters.

Albert was extraordinarily caring, compassionate and generous to all. He was a man of strong faith in God and relied heavily on the Lord. Albert was an active member of Yorkminster Park Baptist Church in Toronto and, prior to that, The Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul in Montreal. House of Compassion of Toronto was also dear to his heart.

Born and raised in Zurich, Switzerland, Albert followed his great passion for cooking and quickly rose to become a world-renowned chef. He was blessed with an illustrious 50-year career in the culinary field, of which the last 45 years were with Hilton International in Montreal and then Toronto. At the age of 28, he became Executive Chef at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel and four years later was appointed as Corporate Executive Chef of Hilton Canada, the position he held until his retirement from Hilton Toronto in 2000.

Albert was fondly referred to as “Papa Schnell” by those who worked with him over the years. He was a mentor to many in all corners of the world and with whom he maintained and cherished close friendships. Throughout his career he always acknowledged that the many accomplishments were the result of the entire team.

Albert passionately promoted his profession and the high standards of international cuisine and received awards for his lifetime commitments towards apprenticeship training and excellence in Culinary Arts. He was a member of several organizations including the Escoffier Society of Toronto, the Canadian Culinary Federation, and the Toronto Chapter of Les Toques Blanches of which he was a founding member and the first President.

Albert had so many interests and passions in life, such as nature, the outdoors, gardening, and learning. The family will fondly remember our vacations together in Switzerland.

A Memorial Service will be held at Yorkminster Park Baptist Church (1585 Yonge Street, Toronto) on Friday, September 21, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Reception to follow. If desired, donations in memory of Albert may be made to Yorkminster Park Baptist Church or House of Compassion of Toronto.

Obituary of HUMPHRIES: MARY ELIZABETH of Lunenburg, NS Formerly of Toronto, Ontario

Posted by on April 6, 2018

images-4

It is with great sadness that the family of Mary Elizabeth Humphries, 92, of Lunenburg, announces her death on Thursday, February 22, 2018, at the Halifax Infirmary, Halifax.?? Born in Evanston, Illinois, she was the daughter of Andrew William and Elizabeth Holbrook (Marsales) Murdison.

In the course of her long life, Mary was an entrepreneur, scientist, educator, consumer advocate, broadcaster, author, volunteer, frustrated gardener, cat lover, singer, family historian and one of nature’s great enthusiasts. She never stopped learning new things, and was optimistic, curious and adventurous.

She grew up in Thornhill, Ontario, the youngest of four children. A brilliant student, Mary obtained both her B.A. and M.A. from University College, University of Toronto on full scholarships. She married English-born Michael Humphries in 1949, and became a specialist in textile and dye chemistry for Croy Knitting Mills.

An activist as well as a scientist, Mary helped shape the new Consumer Association of Canada from the 1950s and she broadcast her own weekly national consumer program on CBC Radio in the ‘60s. Mary taught textile science at Seneca College in Toronto for over 25 years. She was a Fellow of the Institute of Textile Science and a valued committee and board member for groups including the Metric Commission, Costume Society of Ontario, Jane Austen Society, Bata Shoe Museum, UC Book Sale, Maritime Concert Opera and many others. She made many, many friends through her professional and volunteer work.

She was an entrepreneur, writing and self publishing her own textbooks and swatch sets, which were eventually published by Prentice-Hall internationally and became some of the standard works in the field. She would definitely want us to remind you at this point that “a fibre is not a fabric”!

Mary is survived by her daughter, Nina Scott-Stoddart (David Mosey), Lunenburg; son Thomas (aka Chi) (Christa), Lahr, Germany; grandchildren, Dennis (Lydia) and Kai (Miriam Rother), Germany as well as her sister Jessie Wesley of Ontario and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sister Lucy Noble, her brother Andrew Murdison, her niece Heather Parekh and her nephew William Noble.

We would all like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the medical staff, especially the nurses, at South Shore General and the Halifax Infirmary, for their humane kindness and compassion , not only for Mary but for us.

In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Second Story Women’s Shelter in Lunenburg or SHAID Tree Animal Shelter of Lunenburg County would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements were by Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home in Lunenburg.

He was proud of his work and the opportunity it gave him to travel the world and meet a variety of people he called his friends, but his greatest joy was his family.
