EDWARD (TED) GRAY BROWNELL, M.D., F.R.C.P. (London), F.R.C.P. (C.), F.A.C.P., F.A.C.C. 1923 - 2004 It is with deep sadness that we, the family of Ted Brownell, announce his passing on September 16, 2004, at his home. He is survived by his wife Anne-Marie, brother Don (Barb), former wife Bjorg of Calgary, daughter Alix (Gary) of Calgary, son Laurence (Heather), stepdaughters Gillian (Mark) of Ottawa, Kate (Steven) of Maine, and Heather of Halifax, and grandchildren Lauren, Cameron, Morgan, Katie, David, Signy, Jon, Miranda, Casey, Hilary, Jacob, Adam, Joseph, Emily-Rose, and Romney. Ted lived most of his life in Winnipeg with two periods in London, England. He chose a career in medicine, graduating with his M.D. from the University of Manitoba in 1946. He then took specialty training in Internal Medicine and Cardiology in London, England, and obtained Fellowship degrees from Canada, England, and the United States. He practiced at the Winnipeg Clinic and the General Hospital until he took a full-time position at the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Medicine. He continued to practice at the General Hospital, later the Health Sciences Centre, while teaching medical students, interns and residents. Caring for his patients, teaching his students and being a "medical detective" were his great career enjoyments. He served medicine and the University in other ways: on task forces, advisory boards, the University of Manitoba Senate and The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Board of Examiners. He also devoted much time to the Manitoba Heart Foundation as a Board Member and Chairman, the Unitarian Church as a Board Member and Chairman, and the Manitoba Theatre Centre. Ted loved theatre, be it in London, New York or Winnipeg. He served on the Manitoba Theatre Centre Advisory Board from 1970 until recently and served as its President from 1974-1976. Ted loved to play golf in the summer at the Niakwa Country Club with his friends, his wife, and his family, and curled at the Granite Club in the winter. He enjoyed good food, good wine, and the good company of friends and family. He loved to travel especially in Europe with his wife. His wife and family and his duty to his patients were at the core of his being. The family wishes to thank the many people who cared for Ted during his illness including: Dr. M. Verrelli and the Peritoneal Dialysis Team, Dr. G. Louridas and the Vascular Team, and Dr. H. Smith at St. Boniface General Hospital, and the entire Home Care Team who were extraordinary. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Kidney Foundation, 730 Taylor Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3M 2K8, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 200 - 6 Donald St., Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6, or the Manitoba Theatre Centre, 174 Market Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3B 0P8. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday September 22 at St. Andrews River Heights United Church, Kingsway at Oak. Condolences may be emailed to NEIL BARDAL INC. 949-2200
