Evelyn Randall THOBURN
By Liz ARMSTRONG Monday, September 8, 2003 - Page A18
Great friend, neighbour, heart of a large and loving family. Born January 5, 1911, in Toronto. Died March 11 in Unionville, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 92.
Evelyn Marion RANDALL was the fourth youngest of eight children born in Toronto's Cabbagetown to Sophie and Ed RANDALL (an organizer with Canada's first printer's union.) All the RANDALLs loved learning (including a new word every day under the tutelage of their dad); they loved to laugh and loved music. Like many of her brothers and sisters, Evie played piano by ear.
Evelyn was married twice, the first time to Norman POLSON. In 1933, the young couple moved from Toronto to Peru where he worked as an engineer for an oil company. In the Spanish-speaking town of Talara, they had the first two of their three children, Barbara and Carolyn. There Evie became an accomplished horseback rider. She also became fluent in Spanish after amusing the locals by asking for "tiny balls" rather than "lemon tarts" in her first attempt at her second language.
Tragically, in 1940, Norman was killed in an oil-field explosion. After Norman's death, Evie was given 24 hours to depart for Toronto, without even time for goodbyes. Back in Canada, pregnant with their third child (Norman, Jr.), and with very little financial help from the company, Evie decided more assertiveness was necessary. After directing her horrified lawyer to tell the company to "stuff" its apparently rather stingy offer to wind up the case, the parties finally reached an agreement that paid Ev both a lump sum and an annuity that allowed her to move to the house that became her home of more than 60 years.
A few years later, neighbours across the street asked if they might come over and bring a friend. Evie and the new friend -- usually gregarious people -- were both somewhat speechless that evening, and more than a little unnerved. He conveniently forgot his pipe and, once back with a foot in the door, never left. In order to be democratic, however, Evie sat the three kids down, presented a slate of four potential candidates, then told them to vote for their next father. She also made it clear that they couldn't complain from then on. Soon after, Evelyn and Gordon THOBURN were married in the living room of their home. (Many a time, apparently, one or other of the kids was overheard to say, "Don't blame me, you voted for him!" Evie was quite the storyteller, and her son Norman noted recently that her "slate" of four may have included the milkman, mailman and the ice-man. Clearly, the odds favoured Gordon, and the tale no doubt grew taller with time.)
Her marvellous life of 92-plus years continued to unfold -- including a fourth child, Gord Jr., who arrived in 1944. Although there was a fair share of losses and tragedies, Evie always looked on the positive side -- even after losing her eyesight -- and admonished all around her to do the same. Her lifetime motto was: "Never be a perpetrator" -- never contribute to your own grief.
Surely it was a measure of her wonderful life that on the March morning just after Evie passed away suddenly in Unionville, Barbara hurried over to the Sunrise Assisted Living Centre to find all the staff gathered in the administrator's office crying together, and sharing a loving cup of one of Evie's favourite liqueurs in her honour. In the year since her move from her home of many years, Evie had captured a whole new set of hearts, with her repertoire of favourite piano tunes (including When I Grow Too Old to Dream), her even larger stock of bad jokes and, of course, her effervescent personality.
Liz ARMSTRONG was once a neighbour of Evelyn THOBURN. She wrote this with help from Evelyn's eldest daughter, Barbara TOWE.

Truth is emerging in Trinidad deaths
By Colin FREEZE Crime Reporter; With a report from Ken THOMAS in Port of Spain. Friday, January 24, 2003, Page A5
The bruised and bloated bodies of the young newlyweds washed ashore on a remote beach in Trinidad.
Even in death, they lay close together. Inside the woman's belly was their unborn baby. A suspicious double drowning cruelly ended the promise of a new family.
Today, one veteran homicide investigator says that the 1994 honeymoon deaths of Geoff BARNES, 23, and Sherelle Ann IMPERIO- BARNES, 22, are the result of one of the most elaborate conspiracies he has witnessed. Yet another theory calls the tragedy an accident. Only now is the truth beginning to surface in court.
For years, criminal investigators have believed that the vacationing Toronto couple was drugged and drowned in a scheme hatched by conspirators intent on collecting life-insurance money.
Yet only one man has ever been formally accused of murder: Roland (Bobby) DOORGADEEN, whose trial has begun in the capital of the Caribbean island nation of 1.5 million people.
After a lengthy investigation by Trinidadian authorities, Mr. DOORGADEEN was charged with the murders in 1998. The former Trinidadian police officer and convicted car thief has pleaded not guilty. But he will be hanged if a jury finds him guilty.
On the witness stand yesterday was the prosecution's star witness his estranged wife.
Nicole DOORGADEEN testified that in May, 1994, two men in a rental car came to pick up her husband. She said he returned much later in the evening, bellowing from the car: "Don't come outside. Send a scrubbing brush for me."
After the two men drove away, Mr. DOORGADEEN came into the house in his underwear, Mrs. DOORGADEEN testified. He held a bottle of chloroform, she said, adding that she later found his clothes covered with sand.
She also testified that her husband later said he was expecting a "large sum" of about $50,000. And that "one day, while looking at television, he told me that he killed the Canadians and explained how he did it," she told the court.
Her husband said he and two other men drugged the couple and dragged them into the sea, she said. A previous witness has testified he saw Mr. DOORGADEEN with the Canadian couple at a beach house.
Next week, the jury is expected to hear from former Toronto homicide detective Tom KLATT. "I had given my word to the family that I would follow this through to the end," Mr. KLATT said a few hours before boarding his flight to Trinidad yesterday.
Working with insurance adjusters and Trinidad police, Mr. KLATT said he discovered that a former boyfriend of Sherelle-Ann IMPERIO- BARNES had taken out a $100,000 life-insurance policy on her. The insurance, which would have paid double if her death was ruled accidental, survived the relationship.
Despite the breakup and Ms. IMPERIO's marriage, the ex-boyfriend didn't sever his ties. In fact, Mr. KLATT said, he bought the newlyweds tickets to his home country -- Trinidad.
The ex-boyfriend still lives in Canada and has not been charged in connection with the deaths.
"There's a simple explanation," he told a Toronto Star reporter a year after the killings. He then referred questions to his lawyer, who refused to say anything more.
With matters still before the courts, Mr. KLATT did not want to discuss the investigation further, except to say the insurance was never collected. But the veteran of 70 homicide investigations called the Barnes' case "one of the most complete conspiracies that I've ever been involved in."
The nine-year wait for justice has been excruciating for the victims' families.
"From the day it happened we said it would take a long time," Tom BARNES, Geoff's 60-year-old father, said in an interview from his home in Georgetown, Ontario
The court has already heard that autopsies uncovered traces of cocaine in the dead couple's systems. The judge has asked the jury to consider whether the couple might have accidentally drowned.
But Mr. KLATT, who once investigated international drug networks, said this theory is inconsistent with his investigation.
"There was zero information, evidence, hearsay, assumption or guesses that would suggest that either one of these two had ever been involved with drugs, or alcohol for that matter," he said.

W.K. THOMAS
By Alister THOMAS Wednesday, April 30, 2003 - Page A22
Father, husband, teacher. Born December 9, 1927, in Brockville, Ontario. Died January 31, in Cambridge, Ontario, of cancer, aged Dressed in a black, knee-length rayon gown, and with his sonorous voice and entertaining use of character voices, Walter Keith THOMAS was a commanding presence in the University of Waterloo classroom. "He was never afraid of being theatrical to drive home a point, "explained a former student.
Back in 1960, Keith, who wore the gown to reinforce the role of the university as a centuries-old tradition, was a founder of Waterloo's English department and served as its first full-time dean of arts. But his interests included much more than literature. From art, music, history and languages (he had a reading knowledge of French, German, Latin, ancient Greek, and a smattering of Gaelic) to astronomy, gardening, religious studies, rhetoric and Classical civilization: they all contributed to a greater understanding of each other.
"Teaching is, "he once wrote, "creating, in a student, the ability to see clearly and to evaluate wisely."
In addition to numerous scholarly articles, Keith, bespectacled and slight, authored eight books. His two bestsellers, Form and Substance, and Correct Form in Essay Writing, were the standards for student term papers. In the book, A Mind For Ever Voyaging, co-authored with friend and colleague Warren OBER, they tweaked a few noses by suggesting that William Wordsworth, the great Romantic poet, was not entirely original. Keith retired in 1991, and a year later was named distinguished professor emeritus.
His writing, especially his poetry, was visceral and replete with sexual imagery. Paradoxically, Keith, whose sideburns went up and down -- from non-existent to muttonchops -- in the opposite direction to the trends of the day, was a moral conservative. "Profoundly saddened, "was his reaction to a son and his girlfriend when they decided to live together instead of getting married.
A religious non-believer until his mid-40s, he found his faith first in the United Church and then as a Presbyterian. He called himself a "primitive Christian."
He was a self-confessed technological Luddite, and did not use cellphones, e-mail or automated teller machines, preferring more personal contact. When withdrawing money, Keith, a Canadian-history enthusiast, would often ask the teller for one King, a Macdonald and a Laurier ($50, $10 and $5).
Keith completed his three degrees (B.A., M.A. and Ph.D.) at the University of Toronto. His first full-time teaching job was as at Acadia University, from 1956 to 1960. While living in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, he entered a contest to describe his favourite Walt Disney character in 25 words or fewer. He profiled Jiminy Cricket and won $2,500 -- more than half his yearly salary. His first car, a 1957 Austin Cambridge, was called Jiminy. All 12 cars he owned over his lifetime had interesting literary names, as did the family dog, Dylan.
Always disciplined, he pursued his lifelong hobby of gardening with vigour. Even though he had no natural talent for music, he learned to sing church solos -- joyously. On May 31, 2002, he and his wife, Bettie, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. As next-door neighbours in Toronto, they had been teenage sweethearts.
Predeceased in 1978 by a son, Malcolm, Keith is survived by his wife and two sons, Alister and Kevin. Keith wrote his own obituary as well as his memorial service, including new words to old hymns.
For his pioneering efforts and three decades of professorial excellence, Keith was honoured on January 24, when Humanities room 232 at University of Waterloo was renamed the W. K. THOMAS English Department Faculty Lounge and Reading Room. The inscription on the plaque reads: A Mind For Ever Voyaging.
Alister is one of Keith's sons.

After working in Toronto in public health, she returned to Sudbury the following year where she met and married Mac.
Kae loved to golf and curl, and took an avid interest in her family's history. She was very talented in the traditional arts, enjoying knitting, quilting and cooking. As an active community volunteer, she belonged to the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire where she was Regent and to the Salvation Army as an organizer for the annual fund raising drive and board member. She loved to travel with her husband and Friends, but her favourite place in the world was Lake Pogamasing where her parents established a family camp in 1941 and where she spent every summer with her family. She loved to entertain her Friends and her children's Friends, especially at Pog. We were blessed to have a mother and grandmother who stressed the importance of family, community and responsibility.

Dorothy Mae SEALE
By Grace STEVENSON Monday, June 16, 2003 - Page A18
Teacher, student, writer, wife and mother. Born December 7, 1907, in Chisholm Township, Ontario Died April 6, 2003, in Oshawa, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 95.
'Fifty years ago, a neighbour seeing my three small children said, 'Dorothy, this is the best part of your life.' She was wrong. Being alive right now is the best part of my life."
Dorothy SEALE wrote this two years ago in an assignment for the Creative Writing class she was enrolled in at the Oshawa Senior Citizens Centres. At the time, she was 93.
Confined to a wheelchair a great part of the day because of the ravages of peripheral neuropathy, Dorothy never lost her interest in life. Another of her articles focused on the many disturbing happenings in the world and complained that she was suffering from "a malady with no cure in sight called Too Much Information." But, much as it worried her, she made no effort to escape the information overload. She watched television, listened to radio broadcasts and ingested news reports daily. She also read and discussed with her many visitors the latest books. The day she went to the hospital and, with little warning, died, she left an atlas opened to a map of Iraq propped on a stand near her chair in her apartment.
Born to Tom and Annie ANDERSON, Dorothy grew up on a farm in Chisholm Township in Ontario. She took her nursing training at Riverdale Hospital, attended the University of Toronto, and then taught anatomy at a hospital in Quebec City. When she married Lewis SEALE, they bought a house in Sillery, a suburb of Quebec. Lewis worked in his father's lumber mill during the years their two sons and one daughter grew up. Later, he did auditing for the provincial government. Dorothy often went with him on these jobs and, while she waited in the car, made beautiful sketches of anything that caught her fancy. In 1983, they moved to Oshawa, Ontario, to be near their children, but Dorothy always retained a deep concern for the problems of the province where 53 of her 95 years were spent.
In 1987, when the program director of the Senior Citizens Centre suggested Dorothy join a memoir writing group, she protested, "I can't write; I never could write; and I come from a long line of people who didn't write." But she did join the class and, delving into her past, discovered more than one writer in her family. Her great-great-great grandfather, John THOMAS, head factor at Moosonee, Ontario, for Hudson Bay Co. between 1769 and 1813, wrote copious notes to head office. His extensive reports, now in the Hudson Bay Company archives in Winnipeg, continue to be a valuable source of research information on the era. About him, Dorothy wrote, "At this time, the company did not allow European women at its posts. So John married a native woman, Margaret (whose name he anglicized), and had nine children by her." Dorothy was very proud of her native genes.
Charles THOMAS, John's oldest son and Dorothy's great-great grandfather, was sent to England to be educated, but returned to take charge of several trading posts across Canada. He kept detailed diaries, now lost, but his life story, too, is well documented in the Hudson Bay Company archives. In more recent years, Dorothy's cousin, Stanley ANDERSON, received an Ontario Heritage Foundation award for his help in compiling a history of Chisholm Township, and a "first cousin once removed" married writer Carol SHIELDS. Dorothy was certainly wrong when she said there were no writers in her family.
Like other seniors who join writing groups, Dorothy made many new Friends and found an added dimension to her life through her writing. Although unable to attend the classes in person the last months of her life, she continued to enroll, receive the assignments, and send her submissions to the teacher every week.
Grace STEVENSON is a friend of Dorothy's.

Neighbours grieve power-outage victim
15-year-old who died in Ottawa-area house fire remembered for 'a big heart.
He was a good boy.'
By Jordan HEATH- RAWLINGS and Kim LUNMAN Tuesday, August 19, 2003 - Page A3
The house where Michael THOMAS lived remains dark, burned-out and deserted. The power has been restored to the a small Gloucester, Ontario, neighbourhood, but the mood remains black.
"It shocked the community. It shocked everyone," said Tracy YOUNG, who lives beside the THOMASes' house. "It's pretty tense around here."
Michael's grieving family are staying in a motel while they recover from the trauma. The 15-year-old boy died during last Thursday's blackout, when a candle he took to ward off the darkness for his frightened sister ignited a fire when he fell asleep.
"He went to comfort her because she was afraid of the dark," said neighbour Jim SCRIVENER, who has set up a trust fund, along with other members of the community, to help Michael's family get back on their feet. "He had a big heart. He was a good boy.
"Michael was close to his sister and very protective of her," Mr. SCRIVENER said.
Michael, 15, was autistic and appeared much younger, he said, and was more like an eight-year-old in his demeanour.
The fire started after Michael's sister, Jennifer, left the room to join their mother, Erika, who was sitting outside. One of the candles Michael had taken to her room ignited a stuffed animal.
Ms. THOMAS was sitting outside with various neighbours, including Ms. YOUNG who lives next door, when the fire started.
Ms. YOUNG said that Ms. THOMAS noticed the smoke when she went in the house to put Jennifer back to bed.
"She ran back to my house and asked if I had a flashlight," Ms. YOUNG said. "I asked her what was wrong and she said 'I smell smoke,' so I grabbed the candle and ran up her stairs and you couldn't get up. It was just filled with smoke.
"But we never heard a smoke alarm, we never even smelled anything," she said.
The house was equipped with three fire alarms, but all of them were powered by alternating current electricity -- not batteries and were not operating during the blackout.
Ms. YOUNG and Ms. THOMAS ran to another neighbour's house, and when he couldn't find a way in, some of those outside hooked up Ms. YOUNG's garden hose and tried quench the flames in order to rush up the stairs to Michael's aid.
"They were yelling his name inside, when they brought the hose up, and they were screaming, really screaming, but there was no answer, no nothing from him," she said. "Then they tried to go on the roof and they broke the window and that's when the fire department showed up."
Michael's parents and sister have been left homeless by the fire and are living in an Ottawa motel while they grieve. The family who were living in subsidized housing -- did not have insurance. Michael's father, Dan, a security guard, was at work when the fire occurred.
"They're still in shock," said Mr. SCRIVENER, who started a fund in Michael's name yesterday at the Gloucester Centre branch of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Ottawa. He said all other Ottawa Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce branches will also accept donations and that he is hoping Canadians across the country will also help the family.
"They didn't have much to begin with," Mr. SCRIVENER said. Michael's sister "is taking it very, very hard," he said. The boy will be buried after a funeral Friday.
His death was one of the few attributed to the blackout in most of Ontario that left 10 million Canadians without electricity. Another 40 million people in the northeastern United States, from New York City to Ohio and Michigan, were also affected.
Another neighbour tried to save the teenager from the blaze at the townhouse complex but was too late. He was pronounced dead at hospital.
Mr. SCRIVENER remembered Michael during a happier time in the neighbourhood when people gathered outside to gaze at the sky during a lunar eclipse. Michael was there.
"He had a big smile that night," Mr. SCRIVENER said. "He was a nice kid."
Michael's young demeanour made him a perfect playmate for her four-year-old son, Nathan, Ms. YOUNG said.
"They got along so well. It was excellent," she said. "My son would always ask me, 'Can I go play with Michael now?' "
"Michael would come over and see if Nathan could come out. They would always play together. He was a beautiful kid. Very nice, very shy, very polite. I never saw him hurt a fly... He was just so funny. An excellent boy."
In addition to the trust fund set up by Mr. SCRIVENER to help the family get back on its feet, the neighbourhood is soliciting donations to help pay for for flowers for Michael's funeral.
"Any extra money we get will go to help the family buy whatever they need," Ms. YOUNG said. "We want to do something, whatever we can."

'Galloping Ghost' of Canadian football made five halls of fame
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail Friday, December 12, 2003 - Page R17
Ottawa -- If Gordon PERRY had one regret following his illustrious career in Canadian sports, it's that he never competed as a sprinter in the Olympics.
A glance at the Moncton native's résumé clearly shows why he never ran for Canada at the Games: He didn't have time.
Mr. PERRY, who died in Ottawa on September 18 at the age of 100, competed successfully in seven sports. His extraordinary feats earned him a place in five Canadian sports halls of fame: Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Canadian Sports Hall of Fame, Quebec Sports Hall of Fame, New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame and Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame.
Friends and colleagues have compared him to Canada's Lionel CONACHER, who played hockey and football, and American Deion SANDERS who was both a baseball and football player. Mr. PERRY, however, excelled in football, baseball, hockey, boxing, track and field, curling and swimming.
As a kid, "all he ever wanted to do was play sports," says his son Gordon PERRY Jr. of Ottawa. "It seemed like he always had a baseball glove on his hand or skates on his feet. And he could run like a deer." Born of Welsh ancestry in Moncton on March 18, 1903, Mr. PERRY went to school in Moncton and Quebec City. His father Harry, was a composer and musician who played the organ at a church in Quebec City.
Mr. PERRY, who began his working career in banking and stocks in Carleton Place, Ontario, boxed as an amateur in Quebec City and was a goaltender in the Bankers' Hockey League, a highly competitive loop in the 1920s and '30s that played at the Montreal Forum. As a sprinter, Mr. PERRY posted times of 10 seconds and under for 100 yards.
But he's best known for his role as captain of the undefeated Montreal Amateur Athletic Association Winged Wheelers that beat the Regina Roughriders 22-0 in the 1931 Grey Cup game. Small and quick, and standing at just at five foot eight and 165 pounds, PERRY was nicknamed the "Galloping Ghost" because of his elusiveness.
He was a four-time Eastern all-star in the Canadian Rugby Union, precursor to today's Canadian Football League. In 1931, he won the Jeff Russel Trophy as the player who best combined athletic ability with sportsmanship. Sir Edward BEATTY, president of the Canadian Pacific Rail, awarded PERRY the trophy, which earned him $200 on top of his football salary of $1,200.
From 1928 to 1934, the Wheelers squad was built around Mr. PERRY.
"I played both ways," he told The Ottawa Citizen on the eve of his 100th birthday. "I didn't often sit down, that's for sure." He once told the Montreal Gazette the secret to his success against bigger men was that "You can run like hell when you're scared." There was one time, however, when Mr. PERRY couldn't run fast enough.
"He was playing in Montreal against Ottawa and he laughed at a lineman," recalls his son. "When the teams came back here [Ottawa], the guy caught up with my dad and he was carried off the field with three broken ribs. He did not always get away." Mr. PERRY often said baseball was his favourite sport, a game he played with grace and skill. He was invited as a young teen to go to Boston to play but his father would not let him leave Moncton. Later, as a centre-fielder in Montreal, he helped his Atwater Baseball League team win five championships in seven seasons.
After retiring from football in 1934, Mr. PERRY, took up curling. After settling down in Ottawa in 1941, he won curling's Royal Jubilee Trophy in 1953 and 1956. At age 60, he scored a rare eight-ender while competing in a provincial event, says his son, who is president of the Ottawa Curling Club, which for 42 years has run a spring bonspiel in his father's name.
In Ottawa, he worked in several positions with the Bank of Canada. When he retired in the early 1970s, he was involved in the printing and distribution of Canada Savings Bonds -- ironically, working alongside Ron STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, who was once a fleet-footed running back with the Ottawa Rough Riders.
Mr. PERRY continued to curl until he was 90 and played his last round of golf at 98. At 100, the honours continued to pour in. In the 1903 Canadian Football League season, Mr. PERRY was named honorary captain of the Montreal Alouettes.
Mr. PERRY and his first wife, Jay KEITH, had three children, Gord Jr., Pat and Lynn. His second wife was Betty THOMAS. Ms. KEITH and Ms. THOMAS died in their 60s; at age 91, Mr. PERRY married Muriel TAGGART, then a 72-year-old widow. He leaves his wife and three children.
