Some other notes gleaned from the web, October, 2004:


WINE, Jeri Dawn, B.Sc., M.Sc., Ph.D. - Passed over on Tuesday, November 30, 2004, surrounded by beloved family and friends, after a tenacious struggle of more than two and an half years with mesothelioma, at the age of 65. Dr. Wine lived and worked in the Halifax area for the last eight years. She was a registered psychologist in private psychotherapy practice in Halifax and previously in Charlottetown and Toronto. With her skill and wisdom, she helped many individuals to make profound and lasting changes in their lives. From 1975 to 1992, Dr. Wine was a professor in counselling and community psychology and feminist studies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. She advanced to the rank of full professor and was Chair of the Department of Applied Psychology for three years. She was President of the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women; was on the Editorial Board of Resources for Feminist Research, and published many scholarly articles and edited volumes. Dr. Wine was a pioneer in feminist studies. She left a deep impression on her students, supervisees, and colleagues. Jeri was a lover of nature. She enjoyed roaming outdoors with her dogs, Soji and Zack. Her passion for social justice was most recently expressed through her involvement with the Raging Grannies in Halifax. She was also a late-blooming and prolific artist whose sculptures are cherished by her family and friends.

Jeri was a courageous free spirit with abundant curiosity and a taste for adventure. She lived her life as a celebration and inspired those around her to do the same. Jeri's passing leaves a large hole in the lives of her devoted daughters, Wendy Wine of Toronto, Joanna Wine and Jessica Wine of Halifax; her loving sisters, Johnnye Jenner and Judy Smithson of Norman, Okla., and Janna DeMarta? of Crystal River, Fla.; and her many friends. A memorial service will be held in UniversalistUnitarianChurch, 5500 Inglis St., Halifax, on Tuesday, December 7, at 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sierra Club of Canada, David Suzuki Foundation, Metro Food Bank or BryonyHouse.
