2012 at Winston Park Long Term Care Residence, just shy of her 87th birthday. Barb was predeceased by her
husband, Alvan (Bubs) Hall in 2009 and by her brother, Jim Speers and her sister, Elsie Speers. She is survived by
her sister, Kathleen Barker, of Kitchener and her sisters-in-law, Lois Wright and Marie Morris of Owen Sound; and
by an extended family of nieces and nephews and their children. Barb was born in Kitchener on December 6, 1925,
the second of four children. Her father, Andrew Speers, died when she was about 13. At the age of 15, Barb began
employment at B.F. Goodrich Rubber Company, to help with the family finances as her mother, Nellie worked hard
to raise four children (2 of whom had serious health challenges) on a widow's pension. Barb was a lifelong
employee of B.F. Goodrich until her retirement. She married the love of her life, Alvan, on October 14, 1950 and
they enjoyed many wonderful years together, whether bowling, travelling, gardening, helping with family building
projects, or working on their hobby farm which they owned for several years with her brother, Jim; and in their later
years, helping each other cope with successive age related illnesses and finally as companions at Winston Park until
Al's death. During her last years at Winston, her short term memory progressively failed but she was still able to
laugh and her sweet demeanor was always remarked upon and appreciated by the staff at Winston Park. Barb's
generosity, sense of humour and laugh, and love for her family is greatly missed. While she lived a good, long life,
we are still saddened by this loss. A private family memorial service will be held at Erb & Good Family Funeral
Home on Sunday, November 18, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. Barb and Al always supported the local hospitals and other

BASRUR, Professor Parvathi (Pari)
November 10, 2012
Location: Guelph
BASRUR, Professor Parvathi (Pari) Dr. Pari Basrur passed away, on November 10, 2012, at 11:40 a.m. at Guelph
General Hospital, Ontario, with her husband of 56 years at her side. Dr. Basrur is survived by her husband Dr.
Vasanth Basrur and daughter Jyothi Basrur, and predeceased by her daughter, Dr. Sheela Basrur (2008). She will be
sadly missed by her grand-daughters Simone Koves and Simone's father Peter Koves, Natasha and Nina Esmail and
their father Amin Esmail. To mourn her, she leaves behind her brother Ram and his wife Kamla Nambiar, brother
Ravi, sisters Nalini, Sashi, brother and sisters-in-law and nieces and nephews, long time friends Ed and Susie Reyes,
Allan and Lena King and many other close family friends. Dr. Basrur was born September 15, 1929 in Kerala State,
India. After the completion of a M.Sc. in Bangalore, India, she came to Canada in 1955 to pursue doctoral studies at
the University of Toronto. In 1959, she joined University of Guelph as the first female faculty member in the
Ontario Veterinary College. In her 60 year career, she investigated and shared her fascination with the magic of
chromosomes focusing on animal health, reproduction and response to environmental exposure to toxins,
carcinogens and clastogens. Her work has been disseminated in over 200 scientific articles and several books. She
has contributed to the training of over 5,000 veterinarians and supervised 20 M.Sc. students, 26 Ph.D. students, and
Waterloo Region Record Obituaries - November 2012
11 Post Doctoral Fellows and mentored countless others. Dr. Basrur's laboratory was always a vibrant research
environment and a meeting place for students and scientists from Canada and all corners of the world. The Basrur
home was the "home away from home" for many and she was fondly referred not only as Dr. B. but also as Mama
Basrur. The food, the scientific discussions, the stories, the self effacing but distinct humour will be sorely missed.
Her many accomplishments were rightfully acknowledged by personal tributes and awards, all of which were of
equal importance to Dr. Basrur. She was particularly proud of the Order of Canada, YMCA-YWCA Woman of
Distinction award for Life Achievement, the Norden Award for Distinguished Teaching and most recently the
Queen's Jubilee Award. Dr. Basrur was a role model, friend, inspiration, confidante, a visionary and a promoter, all
rolled into one. She literally inspired generations of people and her legacy will carry on. She leaves a void in the
lives of many friends, colleagues, and former students. Dr. Basrur retained her dignity, sense of humor and
consideration for others during her year-long convalescence following cardiac surgery. The family extends their
heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate care given to her at Trillium Health Centre, Mississauga, Grand River
Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital, Kitchener and Guelph General Hospital. The family is holding a private ceremony
in the days to follow. A public celebration of Dr. Basrur's life will be arranged in ensuing weeks. Dr. Basrur had
requested the donations be sent, in lieu of flowers, to the Grand River Hospital Foundation, 835 King St. W.,
Kitchener, ON N2G 1G3 or a charity of their choice. Condolences may be forwarded to the family through the Erb

JACKSON, Glenys
Waterloo Region Record Obituaries - November 2012
November 15, 2012
Location: Palmerston
JACKSON, Glenys 81, of Palmerston, passed away on November 15, 2012 at Palmerston Hospital. Glenys was born
to Evelyn and Ken Ried on a farm on the 8th Concession near Palmerston. She went to high school at Norwell
Secondary School and then went on for nursing training at Grace Maternity Hospital in Toronto. She married Ken
Jackson on October 11, 1958 and moved to a dairy farm near Moorefield, Ontario. In the 1960's, Glenys had three
children: Mary Ellen, Andrea and Bill. She spent a great deal of time ensuring that her children got the most out of
their education and opportunities to study music and art or whatever else they were interested in. In 1972, Glenys
again went back to school for further training and became a registered nurse. She worked as a nurse and eventually
became the Director of Nurses at the Pleasant Villa Estates Nursing Home in Palmerston. She also worked as
Director of Nursing at Caressant Care in Arthur, Ontario. In both of these work places, she trained many young
women who would later pursue careers in nursing and caregiving in the community. When her husband Ken passed
away in 1996, she moved to Palmerston. She enjoyed and participated in the community throughout her life,
including the Ladies Aid at the Presbyterian Church and in the Red Hat Society. Although she was always a slight
woman, she enjoyed attending all of the many dinners held at churches, in the community and all the local
restaurants - especially cherry pie. Two years ago, she moved into the Royal Terrace and appreciated the care and
kindness of the staff there. Near the end of her life, she did have a number of challenging health issues, but received
excellent care under the guidance of Dr. Donald and all of the excellent health care professionals in the Palmerston
and London Hospitals. Throughout her life, she was surrounded by a large family who got together for Thanksgiving
and Christmas. She is survived by her three children and their spouses: Mary Ellen Jackson and Stephen Rigby of
Toronto; Andrea and Raymond MacGillivray of Nova Scotia and Bill and Carrie Jackson of Toronto. She had five
grandchildren of whom she was very proud: Jackson and Adrian Rigby, and Madeline, Kelly and Ryan
MacGillivray. She is survived by three of her siblings: Grant Reid and his wife, Audrey Reid of Elora, Pat and her
husband, Moon Mullins of Manitoba and Mary Wilford of Selkirk. Her sister, Betty and Betty's husband Roy Miller,
and her brother-in-law Wayne Wilford predeceased her. Her husband Ken had a very large family. She is also
survived by Ken's sister, Lucy Clarke of Toronto, and Ken's brother, Allan Jackson and his wife Shirley. Members
of her husband's family who have passed away include: Mary Hollowood, Stella Chapman, Alice Hill, Rus Pearson,
Jean Jackson, Alec Jackson, Harold Jackson and Jim Jackson. As it was her way, Glenys requested that
arrangements on her death be simple. Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation. A Memorial Service of
remembrance will be held at Heritage Funeral Home in Palmerston at a later date which will be announced. In lieu
of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Palmerston Memorial Hospital and will be directed to projects
for the staff, as Glenys always understood how important the staff are to the health and wellbeing of patients.

SPIDELL, Ona (nee Cerskute)
Waterloo Region Record Obituaries - November 2012
November 15, 2012
Location: Kitchener
SPIDELL, Ona (nee Cerskute) November 15, 2012 A life well lived. Ona was born in Kaunas, Lithuania on
November 21, 1929. Her early teenage years were spent under the Soviet and then German occupations of her
homeland, then her formative late teens in a displaced persons camp in Germany, where she discovered her love of
writing. Ona immigrated to Canada alone in September 1948 to work at Canadian Cottons in Hamilton. Genuine and
outgoing, she soon won over her co-workers - her ability to charm an entire room never left her. Her brothers Vincas
and Kostas arrived in Canada a year after she did. She met Bernie Spidell at a YMCA Tip Toppers Club in 1957 and
was married later that year. They moved to Kitchener in the early '60's where she raised two sons and wrote
countless letters to editors, a children's fable and her own life story, as well as translating two classic Lithuanian
plays into English (one of which was staged). In 1967, Ona became a volunteer executive in an international youth
exchange organization, and, with Bernie, brought groups of foreign university students to Kitchener and arranged
one month home stays with local families for each. Her home was a parade of people from around the world and
Ona considered each one a member of her own family - and that love was almost always returned. Through the early
1970's she worked as a school secretary, first at Mackenzie King Public School then later at Victoria Public School,
winning over students and Principals to mutual respect. Ona and Bernie bought the Steddick Hotel in Elmira in 1977
and for 10 years Ona ran the increasingly popular restaurant while Bernie ran the bar. They moved back to
Kitchener in 1987 and became very early and faithful members of Kitchener East Presbyterian Church. Her sincerity
and compassion as she went through life, created such enduring relationships that Ona is leaving behind at least a
dozen people who called her "Mom". Ona spent her last months charming the staff at Emmanuel Village, to whom
her family would like to pass along their sincere gratitude. Ona passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 15,
2012, a week shy of her 83rd birthday. Beloved wife of the late Bernie Spidell (2011). Loving mother of Kip Spidell
(Eva Ennist) of Toronto, and Scott Spidell (June) of Kitchener. Cherished grand- mother of Casimir and Sydney.
Dear sister of Kostas Cerskus (Danute) of Barrie and Leonas Cerskus (Teofile) of Lithuania. Predeceased by her
brothers Jurgis Cerskus (1942), Vincas Cerskus (1977) and her sister Irena Raskeviene (2012). Ona's memorial
service will be held at Kitchener East Presbyterian Church, 10 Zeller Drive, Kitchener on Saturday, November 24th
at 11 a.m. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Kitchener East Presbyterian Church would be appreciated
by the family (cards available at the Henry Walser Funeral Home , 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener, 519-749-8467).
