PARKINSON, Don-Roger
Passed on: January 1st, 2018

With heavy hearts we regretfully announce the sudden, unexpected passing of Don-Roger Parkinson, PhD, MCIC, CC on Jan. 1, 2018 at Western Memorial Regional Hospital in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Don-Roger was born in Sarnia, Ontario in 1952, and grew up in southern Ontario. Don-Roger was an Award of Merit trained swimmer and lifeguard and he spent many summers growing up working in outdoor community pools. In addition, he was a goalie on his high school water polo team. Don-Roger was a founding member of the Environmental Science program (1995) at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, now Grenfell Campus-Memorial University of Newfoundland, Corner Brook. For the past 23 years as an Associate Professor of Analytical Chemistry, he taught numerous students introductory and inorganic chemistry, as well as the courses he pioneered in environmental analytical and aquatic chemistry. Close to 50% of all students in the Chemistry Stream of the program completed their General or Honours degree research projects under his thoughtful guidance. He served twice as Chair of Environmental Science at Grenfell Campus, most recently completing two terms as Chair in April 2017. Don-Roger loved teaching his students. His insistence that they become their best in his classes was his passion. He tirelessly worked on his research in the areas of assessing biomarkers for mould in buildings and building materials, in quantifying anti-oxidants in foodstuffs such as garlic and most recently in the isolation and uses of chitan and chitosan from green crab, an invasive species in Newfoundland and Maritime ocean waters; he published extensively in these and other areas in environmental science and analytical chemistry journals. His recent work on chitan and chitosan was aimed at improved methods of removing heavy metals and organic chemical compounds from drinking water. Don-Roger wanted to make this world a better place to live in. While studying at Brock University for his Bachelor of Science, Don-Roger, in his early twenties, supported himself in the summer holidays working in the coke ovens at Stelco Steel Industry in Hamilton, Ontario. Looking to study abroad and travel, Don-Roger toured around Europe with friends for a year in his Volkswagen mini-bus and went back to England which included teaching in a chemistry lab at a boys school for a couple of years, There, he met HRH Queen Elizabeth II, when she officiated the reopening of the school. Photographs of Don-Roger, his colleagues and the Queen are proudly displayed in his office at Grenfell Campus and in our family living room. After teaching the young school boys in Chemistry, Don-Roger went to City of London Polytechnic to work in a Chemistry Lab and study for his PhD in Chemistry. He enjoyed working side by side with his supervisor Dr. William McFarlane. After defending his PhD in 1988, and living and working in England for 8 years, Don-Roger desired to work in North America to be nearer to family. Don-Roger moved to Boston to accept a position in his field at Tufts University for a couple of years, Bishops University in Sherbrook, Quebec for 2 years, and then on to Grenfell Campus in 1995. During his sabbaticals and summer terms, throughout his career, Don-Roger was a guest lecturer to speak about his research, and visiting researcher and scholar at many universities. Several summer terms were spent lecturing, teaching and researching at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. Don-Roger is much loved by his 94 year old mother (Lili Turner-Parkinson) and by his younger sister (Holly Carol Parkinson) of Ottawa, Ontario, formerly from south-western Ontario. We will miss his daily phone calls, visits on every holiday and summers. The three of us went on many vacations around the world. Don-Roger was well traveled. He was Liliís right arm and Hollyís dear big brother. He cared for, fixed things, solved our problems, bought and paid for many things, treated us like princesses, and told us daily that he loved us. Don-Roger was a classically trained musician, which included piano, guitar, harmonica, organ, flute and other instruments. He had a love for jazz music and Holly and Don-Roger attended several summer jazz festivals together. He was an ear trained musician and able to sit at the piano without music for an audience and play familiar songs and incorporate jazz riffs into the music. His fingers tinkled the keys that gave us joy. Our little family of three is now gone. We are very proud of him and life will never be the same without him. Don-Roger recently purchased a home where he hoped to retire. This past summer, Don-Roger enjoyed gardening, which included growing the sweetest tomatoes and tending to the seasonal flowers and roses. Don-Roger made us proud to walk down the street with him. He was easy to point out in a crowd because of his size and height, piercing blue eyes, and warm and gentle smile. Kindness and friendship to Don-Roger from colleagues, students and friends was received and returned. He was very well respected in the Corner Brook, Grenfell Campus and communities where his mom and sister lived. He will be greatly missed. A memorial and Celebration of Don-Rogerís life will be held at Grenfell Campus in the Spring, so Lili and Holly can travel to Corner Brook in the milder weather, details to follow. Don-Roger will be buried in a family plot in an Anglican Cemetery in Carleton Place, Ontario. Donations to be put towards a prize for a student with the highest grade in Analytical Chemistry at Grenfell Campus with details to follow.

Please see www.arnmortuary.com for a complete obituary.
WILLIAMS, Ivy Sylvia
June 8, 1937 - January 29, 2018
Ivy Sylvia Williams (née Humber)
died peacefully in Greenwood Healthcare Center on January 29, 2018 in Greenwood, Indiana at the age of 80.
Ivy is survived by her son, Charles Lee Williams Jr; grandsons, Alexander L. Williams and Christopher L. Williams; and brother, Gerald Humber. She is preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Miriam Humber; brothers, Reginald, Harold, Cyril, Donald, and Ronald; and sisters, Dorothy, Ella, Elsie, Melissa, and Rose.
Ivy was born on June 8, 1937 in John's Beach, Newfoundland, Canada to Albert and Miriam Humber. She attended St. Ambrose School in Humber Arm South, Newfoundland, Canada. She regularly attended church service at St. Ambrose Anglican Church, where she also taught Sunday school.
Ivy took her first job as a waitress at The Knob in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, Canada. She later worked as a waitress at the Glynmill Inn in Cornerbrook, and then she worked as a waitress at the Candlelight Restaurant in Stephenville, Newfoundland, Canada.
While working in Stephenville, she met Charles (Chuck) Lee Williams, who served in the United States Air Force and would later become her spouse. They were married April 16, 1960 in Curling, Newfoundland, Canada.
Together, Chuck and Ivy moved to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. On June 27, 1963 Ivy became a naturalized U.S. citizen. Within the following year, Chuck was stationed at Zaragoza Air Base in Zaragoza, Spain and Ivy relocated to Zaragoza to be with Chuck.
While in Zaragoza, Ivy gave birth to her only son, Charles Lee Williams Jr. The family lived together in Zaragoza for just over one year before Ivy and Lee moved to Chuck's hometown, Fairmont, West Virginia for a brief period. When Chuck returned from Zaragoza, he, Ivy and Lee moved to Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha, Nebraska.
Shortly thereafter, Ivy and Lee then returned to Fairmont, West Virginia and developed a strong familial relationship with Albert and Julia Spatafore, who were lifelong friends of Chuck. Albert and Julia played an integral role in Ivy's relocation and acclimation to the city that would be her home for the next 25 years.
While there, she held various positions in the service industry, including waitress at the Poky Dot Restaurant. She eventually served as general manager of the Holiday House Motor Lodge for 10 years.
In 1994, Ivy relocated one final time to Indianapolis, IN to be near her son and her grandchildren. It was here that she bought her first home near Garfield Park.
Living in Indianapolis, she worked in a variety of roles with Target, Walmart, and Indianapolis Public Schools.
During her employment with Walmart, Ivy received multiple recognitions for outstanding performance, including the "4-Star Badge" award, several "Job Well Done" awards, and five consecutive "Excellent Attendance" awards. Her exemplary contributions earned her a recognition trip to the home office of Walmart in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Ivy enjoyed music, crocheting, bingo, cooking, playing games, being informed about news, and spending time with her family. Her pet cats, Abbott and Carmel, were also very important members of the family …and some would say quite spoiled by her.
The memorial event is scheduled for February 9, 2018 at Aaron-Ruben-Nelson Mortuary, 11411 N. Michigan Rd., Zionsville, IN 46077. Visitation will take place from 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. with a memorial service immediately following from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, contributions to Alzheimer's research may be made in the name of Ivy S. Williams to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (https://alzfdn.org/support-us/donate/).
Ivy's family would like to extend special thanks to Rittenhouse Village at Northside, St. Vincent's Hospital, Community Hospital, Greenwood Healthcare Center, and Kindred Hospice.

WISEMAN, John Charles (Dickie)
Born In: Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Born: August 14th, 1943
Passed in: Chatham, Ontario, Canada
Passed on: January 16th, 2018
John Wiseman
passed away peacefully and unexpectedly in his sleep at his home in Chatham on January 16, 2018.
To the world, John was a kind man, but to his wife and children, he was the whole world: an unwavering pillar of love, wisdom, fun, compassion and laughter. Their beloved patriarch, champion and hero. The ways he loved them and was loved could fill volumes.
John was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland on August 14, 1943 to parents John and Emma (nee Darrigan). He was the ninth child in a big Catholic family of thirteen children. He had many fond memories of his childhood: the family homesteads on Carmen Avenue, Howley Road and Victoria Street in Mount Bernard, family dinners with bread freshly baked by his mother every day, conspiring with his brothers to tease their sisters and trick them into handing over their baking, playing endless hours of hockey and baseball. John was an accomplished athlete who loved sports, especially hockey, curling, darts and baseball. John and his brother Joe were a fearsome duo on many baseball and hockey teams, competing throughout Newfoundland, even catching the attention of Boston Bruins scouts. John rose to any athletic challenge, once roller-skating for over forty-one consecutive hours to break a provincial and national marathon record, even receiving special permission from the parish priest to miss Sunday Mass so he could be the last man skating. John was fun-loving and had a mischievous streak but his quick wit usually kept him from getting into too much trouble.
John moved to Ontario in 1968 to attend university. There, he met the love of his life, Judy. They were in love and were best friends until the very end. They were opposites in many ways but agreed on what was most important to them: building a strong and loving family together. Soon, they had their own "Three Wise Men": Stephen, Stephanie and Hollie. The consummate family man, John chose a career path in order to provide for his family. Together, John and Judy created a loving home and beautiful life for their children, instilling in them a deep love of family above all else. John cherished his kids, and never tired of spending time with them. He made time for his children even when he had to do shift work, taking them for special lunch dates in his truck. His children will forever treasure their memories of building forts, inventing games, swimming, piggyback rides, dancing, puppet shows, slideshows and family trips. The family photographer, John provided a priceless record of many of these beautiful childhood memories. He shared his love of music with his children also, and the family soundtrack over the years included many of his favourites: Stephen Foster, Paul Simon, Neil Diamond, Abba, Boney M, and The Traveling Wilburys to name just a few.
Throughout their lives, John taught his children by example how to be a good person and friend. Along with Judy, he often acted as a surrogate parent to kids who needed some extra love. When his kids were growing up, the doors to the Wiseman house (the "cave" as the basement hang-out spot was known) and family cottage were always open to kids. John never talked down to his kids or their friends, but instead treated them with respect, asking questions and truly listening to what they had to say. This never changed, even as the kids became adults. John also had an incredible bedside manner, and was a trusted confidante for many people whenever they had a problem. He was a rock and always knew the exact words to say to help loved ones through times of sorrow or trouble. John always warmly greeted those he loved - with a hug and a kiss for the girls, and a hearty handshake and hug for the guys. He let them know they were loved through his words and actions. He was a generous soul who gave himself freely to his family and friends, and also quietly donated to those less fortunate in his community each year.
John was in his glory when the entire family gathered together, especially for family events, holidays and at the cottage in Rondeau. He said that the weddings of his children were among the favourite days of his life, and he loved his daughter-in-law Jenn, and his sons-in-law Stephan and Scott beyond words. John was Tapa to his grandkids, and had boundless energy, love and support for each and every one. He called them his "half-dozen", his six grandchildren: Madeleine, Hannah, Willow, Sam, Frances and Sabine. He loved his kids and grandkids to pieces and was there to celebrate every milestone.
Well-known as a masterful, if long-winded, raconteur, John's stories and jokes were loved far and wide. Legendary stories include the glory of the roller skating marathon, the great smudge pot caper and his mission to "borrow" exams to ensure the academic success of the entire student body at Regina High School. When shenanigans occurred, John was the shepherd but never the sheep. Even in his seventy-fifth year, he continued to be a ring-leader in late night antics and dancing.
John enjoyed sharing his heritage, from jiggs dinners to traditional music, and always kept Newfoundland in heart, passing this love to his kids and grandkids. Some of his favourite memories were of family trips in Newfoundland, especially the historic Wiseman Descendants Reunion of 2008 in Corner Brook, attended by 94 family members. He was as proud as a peacock that day and loved every single minute. He couldn't wait for the entire family to gather again in Corner Brook for a ten-year reunion in August 2018.
John is incredibly missed and will be forever in the hearts of his loving partner of nearly 47 years, Judy (nee Preston) and their children: Stephen (Jenn), Stephanie (Stephan Burchi) and Hollie (Scott Sparling), and their bonus "fourth child", John's nephew, Paul Wiseman (Brenda). He will be forever loved by his grandchildren: Madeleine, Hannah, Willow, Sam, Frances and Sabine.
John is predeceased by his late parents, John and Emma Wiseman, his parents-in-law, Frank and Madeleine Preston; his brothers Sam, Gerald, Gene and Joe; his sister Anne (Birmingham); his brothers-in-law Jim Birmingham and Al Cowan; his sister-in-law Dennie Wiseman; his nephew Jim Birmingham; and by one sister-in-law, four brothers-in-law and a niece in Ontario.
John will be lovingly remembered by his siblings Frances (Bill Prowse), Marie (Tom Collier), Carmel Cowan, Madonna (Ken King), Mike, Louise (Ron Birmingham), and Gerard (Kathy); sisters-in-law Hope Wiseman, Marie Wiseman, Olga Wiseman, as well as four sisters-in-law in Ontario. He will also be remembered with great fondness by more nieces and nephews that can be named here, each of whom held a unique and special place in his heart. He will be missed by his dear friends Bert and Marilyn Smart, Leo Hogan, Linda Hunter and Bud Adlam, and Gabriel Burchi. He will also be fondly remembered by his friends and neighbours in Newfoundland and Ontario.
To honour John's wishes, no formal funeral service will be held. A Celebration of Life is being planned for March 2018 in Chatham. A Mass of Remembrance will take place in Corner Brook in August 2018. For for those wishing to make a donation in John's name, please consider your local food bank, women's shelter, or a charity of your choice.
We know that he will be with us in spirit whenever we are together.
