Josephine ReddickFriday, March 17, 2017
Silver Medal for nursing upon graduating.
After the war, she came to Canada, where she worked at the Red Cross Outpost Hospital in Thessalon, Ontario.
In 1953, she was introduced to Rip in Kemptville by a nursing colleague. She and Rip were married soon afterwards. With Rip, she shared a love of the Canadian outdoors – fishing, snowshoeing, canoeing and hiking. Jo enjoyed music, travel, telling funny stories, and encouraging “kids to be kids”.
While raising her three boys, Jo worked as a nurse in Belleville, volunteered with the Mental Health Association, taught prenatal classes and helped young single mothers. She also taught nursing at the Edith Cavell School of Nursing and Loyalist College in Belleville.
She studied at home to receive her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, and she later earned her Master’s Degree in Science. In 1975, she began teaching at Queen's University as an Associate Professor of Nursing and Anatomy, retiring in 1989. While at Queen’s, she taught students how to engage and support seniors coping with aging. She helped students plan social activities with seniors, a very popular one being a Sunday Afternoon Tea at City Hall which led to an annual Christmas dinner for seniors in the community that still runs. Another of her passions was advocating to improve geriatric and palliative care.
She was presented the Alumni Association Award for Excellence in Teaching at Queen's and the 3M Award for Excellence. In recognition of her commitment and enthusiasm, the nursing students instituted the Reddick Award for Excellence in Nursing Education in her honour, of which Jo was the first recipient.
After retirement, Jo cared for her grandchildren and continued to volunteer by assisting children in primary school with reading skills, literacy being a skill in which she was greatly interested. She continued to teach classes for the care of t...

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
