Recognizing the three Joneses - Moose Jaw Times-Herald

Wednesday, July 05, 2017

We’re very grateful to them. Without them paving the way, we wouldn’t be where we’re at today.”The home first began on March 9, 1940. W.J. Jones came west from Perth, Ont. in 1905 with his family to Valour, a village west of Assiniboia. As a carpenter, he travelled to Moose Jaw for supplies and soon moved there. Irwin knew a few people working at a funeral home, which sparked an interest. When he approached W.J. with the idea, they decided to try their hands with funeral work.In 1939, the pair acquired the building where the funeral home still stands, built in 1906.Don grew up in the funeral home, as his parents lived in the suite above.“I know every nook and cranny and pipe and electrical switch. So I just observed what was going on,” said Don. “I remember when I was a little boy … I was helping my dad and my granddad have funeral services in this area at that time. My job was to let people in the front door, the big old oak door, and so people knew the Jones’ at that point and they knew me.”While attending Victoria Public School and then Central Collegiate, he helped out in various roles at the business.“It wasn’t long into my high school years that I decided, ‘This is what I’d like to do,’” he said. “So after high school, I began apprenticing under my dad.”He received his funeral director and operator license in 1966. While working, he abides by the philosophy of his grandfather – “Serve or do for others as you would like to see done for you if you were in the same, difficult position,” he said.“Coping with a death is a difficult thing. First of all, family doesn’t want to deal with it and they don’t know how to deal with it. They don’t know what is involved,” said Don, “but once they come in and work with our staff directors, they soon learn there’s more to it than buying a casket and going to a cemetery.”For Don, Friday’s dedication ceremony went beyond the renaming of the rooms and the chapel. It has remained a family affair throughout itsbentire operation.“My dad and my granddad both arranged many, many funerals serving many, many hundreds of families of the Moose Jaw and surrounding districts,” he said, pointing to areas such as Dilke, Chamberlain, Central Butte, Tugaske, Chaplin, Mossbank and Cardross.“It’s been an honour to serve all of the famil...

Frank Theodore Bodnar, Jr. Obituary - WKBN.com

Wednesday, July 05, 2017

For Sunday dinners, Frank raised and butchered chickens in his backyard to make the best tasting roasted chicken one ever ate. He loved the outdoors, hunting and trapping in the winter. One very cold winter he took his children ice skating on Mosquito Creek all the way from Youngstown Road to East Market Street, which is a distance of three plus miles through the woods. Frank was able to speak several languages, Polish, Russian, Austrian to name a few. He loved polka music, bands and singing.

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa Citizen

Wednesday, 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. Clark Davey, former publisher of the Montreal Gazette, displaying a mock-up of the paper's new Sunday edition in 1988. Bill Grimshaw / The Canadian Press 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. (...
