When God saw you getting so tired
And cure was not to be
He put his arms around you
And whispered ‘Come to Me’
He didn’t like what you went through
And he finally gave you rest
His garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best
And when we knew you were sleeping
So peaceful and free from pain
We wouldn’t wish you back
To suffer that endless pain again
So as you take your final rest
Now we can say goodbye
Rest well Nancy, our sweet Sister

Obituary of GILLIES, James “Jim” McPhail of Toronto

Posted by on December 18, 2015

Gillies, JamesJim passed peacefully at North York General Hospital in Toronto on Sunday, December 13. He is missed by his loving family, many friends and colleagues.

Jim was born in the village of Teeswater in Western Ontario to Dr. M.H. Gillies and his wife Gladys, a family that was part of the town and region from its earliest days. At 17, Jim attended the University of Western Ontario, and majored in Economics. His time at Western was interrupted by the war when Jim joined the RCAF in 1944 and served as air crew overseas. Upon his return Jim finished his degree with honours and decided to continue his education at Brown University in the USA where he earned an MA. Jim continued his education at Indiana University where he was granted his PhD in Urban Land Economics. After graduation, Jim accepted a professorship at UCLA in California where he rose to prominence in his field, gained his full professorship and was assistant Dean. Jim married his wife Betsy and welcomed children David and Cathy at this time.

Jim was always longing to return to Canada and his family in Ontario. In 1965, the opportunity arose for him to return to act as the founding Dean of the Faculty of Administrative Studies at York University – now the Schulich School of Business. Over seven years Jim built the school from a big idea into the strong base for what is one of the leading schools in North America today. During this period Jim made many friends and grew strong relationships throughout the Canadian business community. He served on many corporate boards and helped establish a world-class zoo in Toronto. Jim and Betsy welcomed children James and Ted during this time. He loved the time with his family. Christmas was always special as were many, many memorable summers in Pointe-au-Baril, Muskoka and the Bruce Peninsula.

In 1972, Jim ran for parliament, winning a seat in the Don Valley riding in Toronto and going on to act as shadow finance minister in the PC opposition to the Trudeau Government. He won reelection to a second term in Don Valley in 1975. Jim ran for leadership of the PC party towards the end of his second term in parliament, throwing his support toward the eventual winner Joe Clark. Jim served as senior policy advisor to the Prime Minister during the Clark government, accompanying him to the G7 Tokyo summit.

After his time in government, Jim returned as a professor at York University, in the school of business. He was instrumental in continuing to build the school he founded to the stature it has today. Jim chaired several programs while at York, most recently the Canada-Russia Corporate Governance Program. He always had great passion and energy for teaching business students, being with them and sharing in their fresh ideas and enthusiasm. Jim has a great many friends and colleagues from this time both in academia and in the business community where he was a member of several corporate boards.

Jim was honored in many ways for his dedication to education and public service. He was awarded honorary doctorates from York, Simon Fraser and the Moscow Higher School of Economics. At York, Jim was awarded the title of University Professor. As a proud Canadian he was deeply honored by the award of the Order of Canada for his contributions to education.

Jim leaves behind a loving family: his wife of 62 years Betsy, children David (Kathy), Cathy, James (Cindy) and Ted (Jacquie), grandchildren Jackie, Gwen, James and David and several nieces and nephews. Jim was the last surviving member of his family, being predeceased by his siblings, Helen Wilson (James), Don (Francis) and John (Poppy). Even with his successful career in many capacities, Jim held dear most of all, family, friends and his roots as a small town boy from Teeswater, Ontario.

A funeral service to commemorate Jim’s life will be held at the Teeswater United Church (13 Elizabeth Street South), Teeswater on Saturday, January 2nd, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. He will be laid to rest in the family plot at Culross-Teeswater Cemetery. A Celebration of Life to be held in Toronto in the spring. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Teeswater Town Hall Renovation Fund (cheques payable to Municipality of South Bruce) would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.

Obituary of Yule: Janet L. (Ballah) of R.R. #1 Dobbinton, formerly of Guelph

Posted by on October 21, 2015

Janet Cropped2The world has lost a doting and devoted woman who always put her husband, children, grandchildren and community first. Janet Louise Yule will be remembered as a strong, smart, selfless and creative woman whose family was the center of her life. Growing up as the eldest child, Janet quickly learned how to care for people, to be responsible and to make sacrifices for family and friends. Her upbringing also meant a lifetime of unconditional love for those around her. Janet loved having her family around and the more family the better! At the same time, Janet also greatly appreciated her quiet, alone time.

Janet was born October 22, 1961 in Guelph and attended the “smart” high school – GCVI. Late in high school she moved up to Chesley and on October 15, 1983 she married her childhood sweetheart Jamie Kenneth Yule. Two years later this young couple were blessed with Rob, and then John, Lloyd and Alissa. It has been said that perfection was attained when Alissa was born.

Traditionalist would not be a word that describes Janet. She was ambitious, returning to school as an adult and attaining a diploma from Georgian College in business and further courses in carpentry. Working with wood was a passionate pastime for Janet. She created a dog house, resembling an actual house, and worked tirelessly for Habitat for Humanity constructing a home in Tara.

At some point Janet was roped into helping with the Santa Claus parade in Tara and ten years later was still volunteering her time and talent. Camping with her family, driving through the countryside, taking pictures of scenery, shopping at the Southampton Market, antiques, checking out architecture were just some of Janet’s many passions. To know Janet is also to know of her absolute love of animals, including Shadow, Duke, a bunny, and twenty-three or so cats! She shared a love of Sci-Fi Fantasy books with her children. As if this isn’t enough, Janet was also an accomplished seamstress, cook and baker. She is famous for her Chocolate Chip cookies. It was an accomplishment if the cookie dough even made it to the oven. Janet personally loved anything chocolate!

Janet was the designate “go to person,” care-giver, everyone’s conscience and strength in her family. She will be missed terribly. After a courageous battle with breast cancer, and with her never ending positive attitude and brave face intact, Janet Louise Yule slipped the yoke of her illness and unwillingly left behind her loving family on Monday, October 19, 2015.

Cherished wife of Jamie of R.R. #1 Dobbinton and most dedicated mother of Rob (Trish) of Port Elgin, John (Hiliary) of Chesley, Lloyd (Amanda) of Wiarton, and Alissa Yule of Tobermory. Loving and proud grandmother to Shyla, Arianna and Annabelle. Janet also leaves to grieve: her parents Judy (Toms) Ballah and Jim Dyson, her brother Jeff Ballah, half-brother Kieran John (Andrea) Ballah and half-sister Kristin (Drew) Wood, her in-laws Ken and Eleanor Yule of Mount Forest. Janet was predeceased by her nephew Cory, sister-in-law Lisa Yule and Jamie’s grandparents Lawrence “Lorne” and Mabel Yule.

Visitation will be at Rhody Family Funeral Home, Chesley on Friday from 2 – 4 and 6 – 9 p.m. where a funeral service celebrating Janet’s life will be held on Saturday October 24, 2015 at 1 p.m. Interment in Chesley Cemetery.

Memorial donations to Habitat for Humanity Canada or Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated in her memory.
