BROUSE, Barbara Jean (née TAILOR/TAYLOR)
On February 23, 2005, at age 73, of a massive heart attack after many months struggling against various challenges to her health. She fought with all her strength to complete her life's work, seeking to finish and publish her memoirs of her traumatic childhood. Born in British India, schooled in Ireland and at Bishop Strachan School and University of Toronto (Victoria College), she was later a copy editor for Simpson's department store and a creative force in the advertising company she ran with her husband. In the seventies, she took up a second career as romance novelist (Harlequin, Silhouette) and, with more than a dozen titles (under the pen name of Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR) she supported her family. Her essence was unconditional love and generosity. She will be profoundly missed by her children Andrew of Montreal (currently studying in the United Kingdom , Gillian (Paul RICHER) of Ottawa, Susan (David WARNER) of Vancouver, and Terance (Andrea BALL) of Maple. She was a beloved "mema" to Danielle and Stephanie BROUSE, to Charlotte and Cléo RICHER and to Kyle WARNER. A memorial service will be held in the chapel of the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West (2 stoplights west of Yonge Street) on Sunday, February 27, at 1 p.m.

BROUSE, Barbara -- Dispatch
By Jordan PRESS, Saturday, April 9, 2005, Page M4
Barbara BROUSE's children often gathered after school in her home office, where she would read to them at a desk cluttered with a typewriter and an ashtray. But these were no children's stories. These were passages about the heaving chests of a hero and a heroine, and how the man took the woman in his arms and kissed her deeply.
"How she came up with it? I don't know," daughter Gillian, now 41, says of her mother, a prolific romance novelist. "It wasn't so bad or graphic that you wouldn't read it to your teenage daughter with her father in the room."
Ms. BROUSE wrote more than a dozen books under the pen names of Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR and Araby SCOTT and was the first person to write a so-called Harlequin Super Romance -- a 400-page novel that was steamier and longer than any before it.
She let her children read every book before it was published, says Gillian's twin sister, Sue, and she fed off their energy and support.
On February 23, Ms. BROUSE died of a heart attack. She was 73.
Born to missionary parents on New Year's Day in Indore, India, in 1932, Ms. BROUSE came to Toronto when she was 8, attending Brown Public School, Bishop Strachan School and then the University of Toronto. After graduation, she worked as an advertising copy writer, which is how she met Lionel BROUSE, with whom she settled in Rosedale after marrying in 1955.
They started their own ad agency, but when the business faltered, she began writing romance novels in the late 1970s, seeing it as a chance to be with her children and fulfill her dream of being a published writer, her son Terance says.
At one time in her career, reporters asked Ms. BROUSE about the "formula" of writing romance. Her reply: "The hero and the heroine be together and in love at the end of the book."
But the same formula didn't play out for her in real life. Her marriage to Mr. BROUSE ended in 1985. Shortly after, she stopped writing romance novels, Gillian says

Barbara BROUSE
By Andrew BROUSE, Gillian BROUSE, Susan BROUSE and Terance BROUSE, Wednesday, May 18, 2005, Page A22
Mother, grandmother, author, poet. Born January 1, 1932, in Indore, India. Died February 23, of a heart attack, in Toronto, aged Barbara was born in British India in 1932 to missionary parents. Barbara's father, a respected doctor, would eventually become Chief Surgeon to Lord Louis Mountbatten (the last Viceroy and first Governor-General of independent India). Barbara adored her father, but lived in constant fear of her abusive mother. While Barbara's childhood was traumatic, it enabled her to master unique survival skills that became the basis of her talents as a writer -- a finely tuned memory and a love of language.
Sent to boarding school in Ireland when she was 6, she became the school's youngest-ever recipient of the "student of the year" award. Barbara came to Canada two years later, went to Brown School, Bishop Strachan School and University of Toronto. Her first job was as an advertising copywriter for Simpson's department store.
Like many women in the early Sixties, Barbara was not expected to return to the office after she had children. She stayed connected to the world of work by taking freelance assignments, and in volunteering with the Art Gallery of Ontario where she dreamt up some outlandish promotions, including a tribute to the psychedelic Sixties that the gallery director hosted in his bare feet.
Barbara was later a creative force in the advertising company she ran with her husband, Lionel. Among several award-winning collaborations at the time, she wrote the lyrics for the jingles "It's hard not to think of the Bay," and "Nobody knows noses, like Kleenex knows noses." In the late Seventies, she took up a second career as romance novelist and, with more than a dozen titles, under the pen names Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR and Araby SCOTT, she supported her family. Barbara wrote Harlequin's first "SuperRomance," a longer and steamier format that became a huge success for the company.
Her own marriage ended in the mid-Eighties. Although she and Lionel grew apart, there was no enduring animosity and Barbara kept the surname that had been hers for almost 30 years.
In her later years, Barbara began to recover memories of her traumatic childhood and worked tirelessly on corroborating and completing her as-yet-unpublished memoirs, The Drummin, Lion in the Drawer, and Dolly. All three manuscripts tell a story of survival and hope.
In 1997, Barbara had a major stroke and temporarily lost her ability to communicate, her gift for words. It was a profound loss.
As Barbara worked hard to regain her precious language, there were some surprisingly hilarious and beautiful moments. Barbara was moved to Riverdale Hospital for lengthy speech therapy and physiotherapy. Having just been reduced to one or two syllables, she was assigned Dr. OCHTERLONY. Many a sidesplitting tear was shed as she tried to pronounce that name -- and pronounce it she would.
A year later, with her family gathered around her, Barbara pointed to each of her four children in turn and, with still-limited language, declared, "Imperfect, imperfect, imperfect, imperfect," and then gesturing again to each, she emphasized, " PERFECT!" With two simple words, she boiled down to its essence one of her basic philosophies; the foibles and frailties of her children were an integral part of the complete people she loved. She wanted her children to know that she felt this way and hoped that they could see each other in the same way.
Of star we come; returned to star We change - and changing, changeless are.
From Peace, by Barbara BROUSE.
Andrew, Gillian, Susan and Terance are Barbara's four grown children.

Romance writer troubled by memories
Barbara BROUSE added depth to bodice rippers
Memoirs recall mother's abuse, servants' kindness
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
As Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR, she created a world in which love's raging passion always overcomes deceit, betrayal and flame-haired predators (aka the other woman), in which the oh-so-handsome (but distant) count will finally sweep our heroine, the small grey-eyed governess, into his rippling arms and, with a shudder, a groan low in his throat, cover her mouth with burning kisses.
She was one of the world's best-selling romance writers.
As Barbara BROUSE she had to be: her own marriage was disintegrating and she was single-handedly keeping four children and a grand house going in Rosedale.
It was the early '80s and she was part of a romantic revolution, one of a stable of writers injecting new realism -- and more than one plot line -- into bigger and bolder love stories. Now there were throbbing groins, restless hands, sex scenes and heroines who were definitely not virginal.
She wrote the first of Harlequin's Super Romance novels: End of Innocence ("Rafael's eyes had darkened and directed their attention toward the region of her breasts... her heart beat like a winged thing..."). Later she was a solid performer for Silhouette and wrote as Araby SCOTT for Avon publishers.
"My editor-in-chief met Barbara at a Romance Writers of America conference and I remember her calling me with so much excitement in her voice saying 'Guess who I signed up for our list? Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR.' It was a coup at the time," said Alicia CONDON, a former senior editor with Silhouette Books.
CONDON edited TAILOR/TAYLOR's book Hold Back The Night, which became a huge seller for the U.S. publisher.
"It had an emotional depth and drama to it that was not common at that time in contemporary romance; it was a book that really struck me," CONDON remembered.
The story featured a young woman who falls in love with a sculptor. There is a misunderstanding and she has his child without him ever knowing.
The copy editor who worked on the book told CONDON it was the best book she'd ever read. CONDON herself wrote to BROUSE in a letter: "This book wrings tears out of me every time I read it."
From 1979 to about 1984, BROUSE wrote dozens of romance novels, many of which were translated and published in Japanese, Italian, French, Portuguese and Swedish. They were never just tales of girl-meets-older-'n'-wealthier-man, and she was never just a dilettante tossing off fanciful froth between lunch engagements.
"She was up every morning at 5 a.m. writing until 5 p.m. and then she would make dinner for all of us. We'd all descend on her in her study after school wanting to know what we were having for dinner. She really did keep it all together," said her daughter Gillian BROUSE.
A former advertising copywriter, Barbara BROUSE thoroughly researched the locales for her stories, whether she had been there or not. She displayed all her books on a shelf behind her desk and enjoyed getting letters from her fans. "They would tell her that she touched their lives," said Gillian. "They don't say that when you write an ad for a refrigerator."
But five years after she began writing, she stopped. She never wrote another romance. It was years before she wanted to write another book -- and when she did, it consumed her.
After she fought her way back from a stroke that robbed her of her ability to speak, BROUSE began a long journey of introspection that resulted in her need to tell her own story. She wrote three volumes, The Drumming, Lion In The Drawer and Dolly, of polished but raw, painful stories of childhood abuse.
More than anything she had written, she wanted these published. After immersing herself in the fiction of love conquers all, she wanted desperately to tell a true story of overcoming cruelty. But when she died at 73 of a heart attack on February 23, she still hadn't found a publisher.
BROUSE was born in Indore, India; her Canadian father was a missionary doctor who tended to many of the prisoners of war made famous in the film The Bridge on the River Kwai. He was also Lord Mountbatten's physician. She was sent away to an Irish boarding school when she was six, then came to Toronto to attend Brown public school, Bishop Strachan School and the University of Toronto.
She was hired by Simpson's to write advertising copy, but after she met and married Leo BROUSE, the couple started their own advertising agency, Lionel T. Brouse and Associates. It was a good time to be in the advertising game. "It was very creative and a lot of fun then," said Margaret BREAK. She and her husband Paul were great Friends with the couple, who were at the centre of the social set of the '60s. They were golden: he was urbane, witty and charismatic; she was beautiful and talented. She wrote the lyrics for the jingle "It's hard not to think of the Bay" and "Kleenex knows noses."
She worked from home, where she looked after their four children: Andrew, now a researcher and PhD candidate at University of Plymouth the twins Gillian, a marketing consultant currently on maternity leave, and Susan, a casting director in Vancouver, and Terance, a communications consultant.
In a house teeming with books and children, she made up stories about a gang of crazy alley cats for her own brood. But when their ad business took a downturn, her marriage showed the strain. Leo BROUSE, who died in 1999, took to sleeping all day and roaming the house at night, a drink at hand. Barbara BROUSE bought a box full of romance novels, studied them and started writing. The marriage officially ended when she stopped writing them.
She sold the big house in Rosedale and all the antiques. "Barbara scoffed at all that anyway," said her friend Buck HENRY, a hairdresser. They met when he came to look at some of the antiques she was selling.
BROUSE was barely into her 60s when she was felled by a massive stroke in 1997. Her carotid artery completely closed down; she could not remember any words and she had to learn how to speak all over again. No one understood the process. In fact, doctors told her she might never be able to walk or talk again.
Henry and the four children took turns being with her in the hospital. He remembers the despair of watching his friend struggling and failing -- to say even a one-syllable word.
"I remember Gillian saying to me 'I just want my Mom back,'" he said.
Her children recall her trying to tell them something after the stroke. Someone handed her a piece of paper so she could spell it out. She wrote "moves," then crossed it out, "woves," crossed it out as well. They started guessing words. Finally someone said "loves." "Yes," she said, pointing in turn to each of her children. "Love, love, love, love."
Her love of language may have saved her: she read and memorized the poetry she loved until the sound of those words became familiar to her again. When her father died in 1994, she turned to writing to revisit her childhood and recover the memories of the abuse she remembers receiving at the hands of her mother. It was also the way she wanted to thank the servants in the family home in India, whom she was convinced saved her from even worse trauma.
"Nobody was helping her do this, her writing was helping her," said her friend Peggy STAMP, who is a therapist. "It turned out to be the route to her unconscious."
But many of her Friends were uncomfortable when BROUSE talked about her latest writing. They had been fine with her escapism writing, the romance novels with the inevitable happy endings, but were threatened and frightened by her memoirs.
Some of them didn't believe her, and she spent years researching and trying to verify her memories.
The three unpublished volumes are her life's work. Not the hundreds of thousands of novels sold round the world by Abra TAILOR/TAYLOR or Araby SCOTT. Her children understand that; they say they are determined to find a publisher for their mother's last and most important words.

James Vincent MALONEY
By Patricia MALONEY, Monday, May 16, 2005, Page A14
Husband, father, story teller, Catholic, machine shop inspector. Born April 11, 1922, in Mt. St. Patrick, Ontario Died January 21 in Ottawa, after a heart attack, aged 82.
Family and religion were the cornerstones of Jim's life. He also loved to tell stories about growing up on the farm. This was the same farm Jim's grandfather homesteaded when he emigrated from Ireland during the potato famine. The rocky hills Jim called home would eventually be named after his family, Maloney's Mountain, near Mt. St. Patrick, Ontario Jim's parents Margaret, a school teacher, and John, a farmer, raised nine children here, without indoor plumbing, electricity or a telephone. Bartering when cash was tight was common. Once my grandfather purchased a 1937 Ford for $125 and 100 cords of maple wood.
We all loved to listen to Jim's stories of the farm. He remembered every detail and we often heard the same story many times. One of his favourites was when he was still in primary school. On a Friday, Jim pushed Wilbert LYNN off his seat, breaking the cast-iron pedestal in the process. Sister Bernadette told Jim to tell Father HARRINGTON what he had done. Jim knew he was in trouble. Father said, "Your dad is going to have to pay for that seat." To make matters worse, Father said "Don't tell your dad because I'll tell him Sunday at Massachusetts."
Jim had the worst weekend of his life. On Sunday, he went with his brother Mike to play down near the water. Jim's dad came home from church, but didn't say anything to Jim. On Monday, Jim asked Father what his dad had said about the broken pedestal. But the priest hadn't told his dad.
Stunned, Jim asked "But who is going to pay for it?" Father said, "Oh I will, but I guess you had a pretty rough weekend, English Jimmy?"
Jim married Elaine BROUSSEAU in 1945 in Ottawa. By 1953 they had three children but were still living in an apartment. Jim wanted desperately to own his own home for his growing family but he couldn't afford to.
Then he heard about an opportunity to build one. The only catch was, he had to help build 16 of them. So the family moved to Hull, Quebec, where Jim joined a co-op of men who built homes in the evening and still worked their day jobs. Two years later, Jim and Elaine owned their very own home where they had three more children.
Jim suffered bipolar disorder most of his adult life and was forced to retire at the age of 49 from his job in the federal public service.
When he was feeling down he would go to bed in his day clothes. The way Jim explained it, when you feel that awful, you don't want to have to get dressed in the morning. But when Jim was feeling good, he was back to story-telling, making buns (which he learned from his mother), tending his garden or working with his church.
In 2001 Jim lost Elaine to cancer, was forced to sell his home in Kemptville, Ontario, where they now lived, and move into a nursing home. Jim lost most of his personal freedoms but still enjoyed frequent visits from his children and grandchildren. Going to Mass on Sunday was important to Jim and his children took turns taking him.
Jim's sense of humour never wavered. I used to take him to Tim Horton's every Monday for a coffee and doughnut. When we passed the nursing station he always joked to the nurse on duty, "If I don't come back I'll write."
He missed Elaine terribly. Always deeply religious in his Catholic faith, Jim was sure he would be with her again in Heaven. I can hear him now, telling her stories about growing up on the farm.
Pat MALONEY is Jim's daughter.

WALSH, Garnet Ralph
Garnet Ralph WALSH of Markdale passed away on Saturday, April 9, 2005 after succumbing to smoke inhalation as a result of a small grass fire at his farm in Euphrasia Township.
He is sadly missed by his wife of 52 years, Frances (THIBAUDEAU) WALSH. Sorrow surrounds his family members Valerie BROWN of Meaford, Barb and Manfred VOSS of Dundalk, Ralph and Sandy WALSH and Bill WALSH of Markdale. Garnet is also missed dearly by his five grandchildren Carol BROWN, Stephanie VOSS, Wendy, Emily and Charlie WALSH. The suddenness of his death was felt by his many nieces and nephews both from out West and in Southern Ontario.
Garnet was the first born child to William and Queenie (BOWEN) WALSH of Markdale. He is predeceased by a sister Iris MILLS and her husband Glen of St. Catharines. He leaves a younger sister, Madeline MCINNES/MCINNIS of Edmonton, Alberta to mourn his passing.
Garnet enjoyed his life as a farmer, occasionally taking extra jobs picking apples or working at the local ski hills. He enjoyed time spent with family and Friends. In his later years he would often be seen on Saturday nights cheering on his favourite racers at Varney racetrack. Upon retiring, he kept busy on the farm helping Ralph and Bill with various jobs.
Garnet was a genuine, caring thoughtful and hard-working character. The family takes much comfort in believing that Garnet's death was not seen as tragic, as he got his ultimate wish to leave this world with his boots on, working on his well-loved farm.
Visitation was held on Tuesday, April 12, and the family was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and comfort shown by family and Friends. A fitting tribute to this well-liked and well-respected man.
A private funeral was held at the May Funeral Home on Wednesday, April 13 with Reverend Mark WAUGH offering words of comfort. A short remembrance was read by daughter-in-law, Sandy WALSH. Afterwards, family and Friends along with Reverend WAUGH shared comforting words and thoughts at an interment of his cremated remains at a pre-chosen location cherished by Garnet.

BROWN, Jimmy
In loving memory of my dear father, Jimmy, who passed away 4 years ago today, January 10, 2001.
There is a son who misses you badly
In the home where you used to be,
A son who wanted to keep you
But God willed it not to be.
I think of all the good times Daddy
Of days when I was young,
Of all the places we would go
And things we would have done.
The times when laughter filled our hearts
And tears were very few,
You left me with beautiful memories
But all I really want is you.
A wonderful Daddy, only lent
One of the best God ever sent,
A smiling face and a heart of gold
The dearest father this world could hold.
Oh, God please be good to my Daddy
Because he was so good to me,
Put your loving arms around him
And keep him happy just for me.
Forever loved and sadly missed by your son Jim and daughter-in-law Cory.

In loving memory of our precious Papa, Jimmy, who passed away 4 years ago today, January 10, 2001.
Papa,
You cared for us when we were small
And watched with pride as we grew tall,
You shared our smiles and wiped our tears
Thank you for all those happy years.
We have sent a dove to Heaven
With a present on it's wings,
Be careful how you open it, Papa
It's filled with beautiful things.
Inside are a million kisses
Wrapped up in a million hugs,
To show you how much we miss you
And to send you all our love.
Lord, please take good care of our Papa
And keep him by Your side,
For we are sure the angels sang
The day that he arrived.
Forever in our hearts. Your loving grandchildren Natasha, Patrick, Justin, Shane, Trevor, Riley and Shayla.

In memory of my loving husband, Jimmy, who passed away 4 years ago today, January 10, 2001.
Behind the gates of Heaven
Is a man whom I adore,
Four years have passed already
Yet still my heart is sore.
A husband so lovely, with a heart so true
A man with eyes of the brightest blue,
With snow-white hair and a smile so bright
He's my angel, my sunshine, my night.
Our closeness was a blessing
Oh, how I miss his touch,
That is why I loved him
And miss him very much.
His ways were always quiet
He never cared for fuss,
Only to be remembered
And loved by all of us.
Jimmy, I know you would never leave me
Unless you had to go,
So keep a place beside you, love
For your wife who loves you so.
Forgive me Lord for asking why
The thorns live on and the roses die.
Loving you now and missing you forever. Your loving wife Joan and large family circle in Canada, Ireland and England.

It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone For part of us went with you The day God took you home. Missed by Jack, Willie, Niki, Shawn, Devin and Bailey.

Transit death leads police to second body
Detectives speculate store proprietor and companion died in murder-suicide
By Joe FRIESEN, Saturday, February 19, 2005 - Page A16
A man and woman are dead after an apparent murder-suicide that spanned the city's east and west ends.
The police investigation began shortly after 2 a.m. yesterday, when a man was killed by a subway train at Donlands station. Police said they traced the man to a corner store on Mimico Avenue in Etobicoke where, two hours later, they discovered the body of a female acquaintance of the man. They would not identify the two people.
Police are trying to establish the nature of the relationship, but residents of the quiet, working-class neighbourhood by the lake say the store was run by Tanvir Ashraf KHAN, known to his customers as Tan.
Mr. KHAN's long-time companion was known as Shah.
Jill REED, who lives across the street from the store, said the two were in their 40s and had been a couple for some time. There was trouble in the relationship recently, however, and Shah left Mr. KHAN for about a month around Christmas, Ms. REED said.
"They were just nice, friendly people," Ms. REED said. Like many people, she shopped at the New Jersey Variety and Discount Store for such things as cigarettes and milk. Mr. KHAN always greeted his customers with a smile, she said.
However, another neighbour, Gary David BROWN, said he spoke to Shah on the streetcar last week, and she told him that Mr. KHAN was "a little unstable."
At the time, Mr. BROWN was explaining how he had had a falling out with Mr. KHAN nine months earlier.
Mr. BROWN had taken a special interest in the goings-on at his local corner shop two years ago and had been advising Mr. KHAN on the business. He recommended that Mr. KHAN branch out by establishing a Western Union money-transfer service, as well as providing fax and photocopy services and installing a pay telephone -- all of which turned out well for his store, Mr. BROWN said.
But one day, when Mr. BROWN wanted to send a fax, Mr. KHAN reacted angrily toward him, telling him not to wave the papers in front of him. Mr. BROWN was baffled, and left the store vowing not to return. The two had barely spoken since.
"He was very reserved, but as soon as something went wrong, like when he was having Internet problems with Western Union, it really got his blood pressure up," Mr. BROWN said. "He was easy-going until something got on his nerves."
Mr. BROWN said Mr. KHAN worked all hours of the day, from around 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and was often spotted stepping outside the shop for a cigarette. Shah, who Mr. BROWN described as "the nicest person you would ever want to meet," would often join Mr. KHAN at work.
The only problem Mr. BROWN had been aware of at the store related to the penny candy.
Children from the local school were stealing too much of it, Mr. BROWN said, so Mr. KHAN decided to get rid of it and sell only chocolate bars.
Manvinder KAUR, who lives next door to the small residence -- attached to the store -- where Mr. KHAN lived, said she saw him late Thursday night.
He was putting out the garbage as usual, and said hello with a big smile. The two often chatted because they shared a language, she said.
Mr. KHAN was born in Pakistan. He took up the corner-shop business in December, 2001. He rented the store for $725 a month, and the attached residence for $325 a month.
The property owners described Mr. KHAN as likable and said he always paid his rent on time.
"It's very sad news. We'd never believe that," said the owner, who asked to remain anonymous.
"I don't know why he did this."
Postmortems will be performed today. The homicide squad has taken over the investigation.

Alan BROWN
By Ainsley BROWN, Monday, February 21, 2005 - Page A16
Husband, father, grandfather, storyteller, friend. Born May 21, 1930, in Toronto. Died September 12, 2004, of cardiac arrest resulting from kidney failure, aged 74.
In July of 2004, my Dad and I sat on the back porch of my Montréal apartment. The day was sunny and clear and we were enjoying the serenity. My Dad was admiring the view: electrical poles and clotheslines interwoven on a clear blue sky. "This is what I imagine Mordecai Richler's world was like," he said. I agreed. By evoking this literary scenery, he transformed those brief instants into a scene from a book. Now that he is gone, sentences like these and moments we shared all echo in my mind. Since he died suddenly in September, my Dad has become a series of stories, so it seems appropriate that I keep him with me in this way. For my father was a storyteller, and writing about his life is a way of following in his footsteps.
Alan BROWN was born in Toronto, the eldest son of Ruth and Reuben BROWN. His father, Dr. Reuben BROWN, practised dentistry in downtown Toronto. Alan admired his father's generosity and social consciousness, manifested through his willingness to treat all patients in need, regardless of their financial means. His mother, Ruth BROWN (ROTENBERG,) graduated from the University of Toronto in 1926. A talented pianist, she made her debut at Massey Hall at 6 and later played at her father's movie house, the Mary Pickford Theatre, which stood at the corner of Queen and Spadina. Her musical prowess stayed with her well into her 90s, and in the last years of her life, she played the piano on the stage of Roy Thomson Hall. My Dad was so proud to see his mother on stage, her fast fingers racing along the keys during her piano accompaniment to a chase or love scene.
Not inclined to follow in his mother's musical footsteps, Alan opted to study dentistry, like his father. As a young man he studied at University College, and was very proud that his two daughters continued in this tradition. He graduated from the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry in 1954, and was very active in the Toronto chapter of the Alpha Omega Fraternity. He went on to practise oral surgery in Toronto for many years, with appointments at the Toronto General Hospital and at Mount Sinai Hospital. In 1986, he was appointed an assistant professor of oral surgery at the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry. Father of five, when he died he was the proud grandfather of six.
My Dad's extreme modesty meant that, every so often, I would learn new and unexpected things about him. For young children, parents are mysterious and enigmatic creatures; with my father, this intrigue lasted into my adulthood. "You lived in New York?" I asked, surprised at my new discovery. He then told me about his first oral surgery internship at Harlem Hospital in the 1950s. "You were at that hockey game?" my brother exclaimed. And, indeed, in September, 1972, my father had travelled to Russia. A lifelong sports fan, he considered himself a lucky man to have witnessed Paul Henderson's overtime goal that won the series.
Alan BROWN was an extraordinary man of class, character and charm. He was, above all, a kind man, and his kindness reflected itself in everything he did. My back porch is now covered in snow; winter has taken with it the scenery of that peaceful summer afternoon. The season has changed and my father has passed away. In a couple of months, summer will come again; the snow will melt, our scene will once again appear and my Dad's words will echo in my mind, like so many other things he has said to me throughout my life. We will never relive those moments, but I can relive our story every time I look out of my window.
Ainsley BROWN is Alan BROWN's daughter.

On April 6 Myrtle I. LORIMER died in Coquitlam, British Columbia from a cancer that confined her to bed in her last weeks. She did not suffer unduly and maintained her wry sense of humour almost until the end. She assured us all many times that she had led a long and happy life.
Myrt was born May 20, 1912 in Regina to James Hamilton MOORE, blacksmith, and Annie (HUNTER) MOORE, seamstress. She is survived by her husband Wes, whom she married in 1940, her children James (publisher, Halifax), Rowland (professor, Vancouver) and Elizabeth (Betty; musician, Ottawa), her grandchildren Eric and MifAnne Lorimer BOLLMAN, Stefan, Conor, and Julia LORIMER and step-grandchildren Lynn MacGREGOR, Wendy MacGregor STORDY and Bill MacGREGOR, and her nephews and nieces. In her final years her nephew David BROWN and his wife, Marsha, were most kind and nurturing.
In early adulthood, Myrt acquired a specialist certificate for teaching kindergarten and began her professional career in Regina. However she was forced to give up teaching by a Regina School Board policy forbidding the employment of married women. She briefly returned to teaching kindergarten in Moose Jaw and then again in her 80s and 90s at Maple Leaf Estates in Florida, teaching music theory to seniors.
Myrtle and Wes moved their family to Winnipeg in 1949 and Myrt became active in many community organizations as a board member, board chair, and president. Her volunteer work included the Children's Home, the Fort Garry Library, the Winnipeg Library, and, perhaps her greatest love, the International Music Camp at the Peace Garden where she was involved for 45 years, many years as a board member, some as president. She was instrumental in establishing the Manitoba Committee, a group of nine Canadians who, with nine Americans, operate the music camp. She recognized as a Woman of Distinction in 1984 by the Winnipeg Young Women's Christian Association / Young Men's Christian Association, by the Mayor of Winnipeg for her service to the city, and by the International Music Camp.
We will remember Myrt's social grace and acumen, her sense of justice, her love of music and art, her avid card playing, her feistiness, her love, warmth, and conspiratorial delight, and her devotion to providing opportunities for her family and others.
A memorial service will be held Friday April 15 at 3: 00 pm at Saint John's College Chapel at the University of Manitoba. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the International Music Camp c/o #9 - 270 Roslyn Road, Winnipeg R3L 0H3, Crossroads Hospice, P.O. Box 1072, Coquitlam V3J 6Z4, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

BASSI, Elizabeth (née CULLIVAN)
Passed away on Sunday, August 7, 2005 at William Osler Health Centre after a courageous battle with cancer, which she endured with dignity, grace and a sweetness of spirit that amazed family, Friends and medical staff alike. Elizabeth leaves behind her loving husband of over 50 years, Kris BASSI, son Kristopher of Dubai, United Arab Emirates and daughter Sheila and son-in-law David KELLETT of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

In 1948, she left Ireland to practice nursing in London, England. An accomplished nurse, Elizabeth met her beloved Kris in 1952 and they were married December 23, 1954. In 1957, they made the decision to move to Canada and settled in Toronto where they have made their home ever since. Elizabeth was a gregarious, vivacious, sparkly woman whose Irish charm and generosity of spirit touched everyone she came in contact with. She and Kris enjoyed travelling and went to many destinations in North America and elsewhere. She left a strong impression wherever she went and was particularly popular in Yellowknife as a result of visits she and Kris made to Sheila and Dave. Her love for her family, her adopted country Canada and for her Ireland was unwavering. She is forever on our minds and always in our hearts.

Bob BROWN
By Ellen McANSH, Tuesday, August 9, 2005, Page A16
Husband, father, police officer. Born June 22, 1926, in Toronto. Died January 31, in Bowmanville, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 78.
Robert (Bob) Edwin BROWN was born to Thomas BROWN and Margaret Reid BROWN, immigrants to Canada from Northern Ireland. His mother died of tuberculosis in April, 1927. His father remarried and in August, 1930, Bob's sister Edna was born. Bob said that his stepmother showed as much affection and guidance to him as any boy could expect to receive from his mother.
He joined the air force in 1943, and was training in New Brunswick when the war ended so he never saw service overseas. By early 1946, he was back at his civilian job working as a meat cutter in a grocery store. On March 12, 1946, he went on his first date with a fellow employee at the store, the woman who was to become the love of his life, Bea JONES. They were married on June 7, 1947, and spent their wedding night at the Ford Hotel, which overlooked a Toronto police station. At that time, Bob did not know that he would soon be one of the officers going in and out of that division.
A few months after his marriage, Bob decided that he should look for a better, more secure job. On August 27, 1947, he walked into Police Headquarters on College St. and walked out a few hours later as a police constable. He then had to go home and tell Bea that he had joined the police force.
For 27 years, Bob was a dedicated, respected, hard working police officer, rising to the rank of detective sergeant. During his policing career he served on the executive of the Metropolitan Toronto Police Association and was most proud of his involvement in contract negotiations. He was part of the bargaining team that negotiated the single largest increase in salary for any police department at that time.
Police associations were active in lobbying government for legislative changes they felt would improve public safety and Bob chaired the Canadian Police Association committees on Capital Punishment and the Bail Reform Act, participating in televised debates with then-Justice Minister, John Turner. Bob retired from police work in 1974 and embarked on a second career as an investigator for the Ontario Securities Commission, retiring as chief investigator in 1988 after undergoing a heart bypass operation. He suffered from heart problems for the next 17 years.
The most important part of Bob's life, though, was his wife and family. He and Bea had four daughters. He was very supportive of everything his girls did and sacrificed a great deal over the years for their benefit. There were many family holidays and camping trips and the small house on Honey Drive in Scarborough was always full of family and Friends.
Bob was especially proud that two of his daughters followed him into police work and that three of his sons-in-law also served the department he loved. When another daughter was working on her master's at York University, he would copy the material that she needed while she worked in the library. He was proud of his York U cap and the credit given to him as a research assistant in her published thesis.
In turn, his daughters thought that their Dad could do anything. If it needed to be built, he could build it. If it needed to be fixed, he could fix it. He adored his three grandchildren and always looked forward to their visits. His favourite Christmas gift was the calendar with the grandchildren's pictures that he and Bea received every year.
Bob was a man of strong character and work ethic. He passed these values on to his children. Being Bob's daughter means knowing that you can do whatever you put your mind to. His daughters will always be grateful to him for his unconditional love and support.
Ellen McANSH is one of Bob's daughters.

Robert Francis BROWN
By Neil CAMPBELL, Thursday, August 25, 2005, Page A16
Veteran, innkeeper, husband, father. Born December 24, 1916, in Montreal. Died April 18 in Kingston, Ontario, of cancer, aged The only child of Warren and Winifred BROWN grew up in comfortable surroundings in Montreal, his father the president of Cockfield, Brown, the largest advertising agency in Canada at one time. He attended Lower Canada College at an early age, and later, St. Andrew's College. He sailed on the original Bluenose, and travelled across Canada with his mother, staying at the finest hotels. However, his childhood was at times a lonely one; his fondest memories were of summer visits with his grandmother in Belleville, Ontario
The Second World War cut short his studies at McGill University. He enlisted for active service with the City of Westmount Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force, and was soon in England. In September, 1940, his Tiger Moth went into a tailspin, hit high-tension wires (which actually saved his life by breaking the fall), and crashed. The official photographs of the crash show no sign of an airplane only twisted and scorched metal -- yet somehow he walked away. He served the rest of the war back in Canada, as flight lieutenant at several air force bases in the Maritimes and Ontario. After the war ended, he never flew again.
Returning to civilian life, he studied hotel management at Cornell University, and then gained experience at the Alpine Inn in the Laurentian mountains and the Mount Royal Hotel in Montreal. In 1950, he purchased an old summer estate on Lake Massawippi in North Hatley, Quebec It was architecturally reminiscent of George Washington's Mount Vernon; in an ironic twist, he named it Hovey Manor after a prominent Loyalist settler, and over the next three decades built it into one of Canada's pre-eminent country inns.
He was the ideal innkeeper, very sociable, and a great raconteur. And there were many stories: temperamental chefs, eccentric guests, electricity and plumbing crises, visits by the National Ski Team (Nancy Greene et al.), pranks conducted up and down the lake. He was only away from the hotel a handful of days during a period of 30 years. Over the years, he was also instrumental in promoting tourism in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.
After three decades, however, both the clientele and the political climate were changing; his Montreal of the Normandy Roof and Kon Tiki restaurants was fading. To his credit, and despite generous offers, he refused to sell the hotel to a man with foreign connections. He helped turn the tide; today, North Hatley, prosperous and with its traditions intact, is in his debt. In 1979, he sold Hovey to the son of a good friend, knowing that it would be in good hands, and it continues today as a five-star resort hotel.
Early in the war, he had married Virginia WOOD, a union that produced three children: Carol, Robert and Anne. Ultimately the marriage did not last and in middle-age he married Elizabeth McCRAE. After her early death, he married a third time, spending a happy final decade with Audrey Esler SAVAGE.
In retirement, he enjoyed his long daily walks, his boat, Canadian football, the History Channel and the news, cocktail parties in North Hatley, and maintaining his meticulous daily diary. With Elizabeth he travelled a little, largely in New England, and with Audrey he enjoyed splitting time between North Hatley and an apartment in Kingston, with lunches at Chez Piggy replete with mandatory martinis. After a vigorous and full life, and hardly sick a day of it, the final months were frustrating for him, laid low by the sudden onset of diabetes and pancreatic cancer.
There was an appropriate memorial service for him in North Hatley. It was a life worth celebrating. He enjoyed life and made the world a little more interesting.
Neil is Robert BROWN's son-in-law.

She was married to her loving husband of 48 years, Nathan STALL, who sadly predeceased her in 1986. Gertrude was born on May 17, 1917 to Annie and Leo BRAUNSTEIN. She had one brother, Morton, who died at age 16 in 1941. Gert and Nathan had 4 children, Shelley, Morton, Phyllis and Richard. They enjoyed living on McAdam Avenue, travelling the world, summers at Winnipeg Beach, dancing on the Moonlight train, golf, bridge and winters in Palm Springs. They were blessed with a loving and close group of Friends that lasted throughout Gert's lifetime. Gert was an accomplished pianist, golfer and bridge player. She attained her diploma from the Toronto Conservatory of Music (ATCM.) She was a life member of Hadassah-Wizo, and her Jewish heritage played a central role throughout her life. She was the heart of our Shabbat dinners, traditions and holidays. We will always remember her wonderful smile, her delicious meals, her emphasis on family gatherings and we will always cherish the times spent together. Gert will always be remembered with great love and much affection by her children, Aubie RUSEN, Phyllis and Marvin SHENKAROW, Richard STALL and Lisa BERGER; her grandchildren, Sara and Howie, Janis and Jeff, Marnie, Lori and Jeff, Michelle and Laurence, Morris and Rana, Nathan, Jacob, Benjamin, and Rosa her great-grandchildren, Benjamin, Hannah, Anna, Noah, Matthew, Natasha, Gillian, Sydney, Samuel, Tyler, Samantha and Abbie. Tragically, she was predeceased by two of her children, her son Morton in 1963, and her daughter Shelley RUSEN in May, 2005. Throughout her life, her dignity, strength and courage were an inspiration to her family. Her values will live in our hearts forever. The family greatly appreciates the care and support extended to her by her caregivers who enabled her to remain at home and enjoy the last years of her life. A special thank you to Dr. Jack RUSEN for his care and compassion. In addition, we are grateful to CancerCare Manitoba for their many acts of kindness.

BROWN, William Thomas " Tom" (1912-2005)
Peacefully at Crofton Manor, Vancouver on November 2nd at the age of 93. Loving husband of the late Daphne, who died in 1980. He is survived by his sons Michael and Peter (Helen), daughter Jane (Gordon BALL) and his sister Ann. Pre-deceased by brother Malcolm. Dear grandfather of Maura, Meghan, Hilary, Jeffrey, Ian, Jonathan and Jennifer. Proud great-grandfather to thirteen children. Tom was second generation-born in Vancouver, attended Magee High School and then U.B.C. He was designated a Rhodes Scholar in 1932 and attended Saint John's College, Oxford. During World War 2 Tom served overseas with the Essex Scottish, rising to the rank of Lt. Col. before being badly wounded at Rouen, France. He received an M.B.E. for his work at Army Headquarters prior to D-Day. After the war Tom returned to work with Odlum Brown Investments Ltd., the investment firm founded by his father, A.M. 'Buster' BROWN. Tom fostered the growth of Odlum Brown as President for many years. He became a respected member of the business community, much admired for his integrity and honesty. He was the first British Columbia President of the Investment Dealers' Association and a director of many firms including British Columbia Telephone, Bank of British Columbia, Bank of Western Canada, Fidelity Life, Wardair and in 1961 was a Member of the Gordon Royal Commission on Banking and Finance. Tom believed strongly in sharing his business acumen for the benefit of his community and province. He was instrumental in developing the Vancouver Foundation into one of Canada's largest philanthropic institutions and served as a director for many years. He was a founding director of the Nature Trust of British Columbia, a director of the Chris Spencer Foundation, a director of the Vancouver Public Library and a member of the Vancouver Police Foundation. He was also President of both the University of British Columbia Alumni Association and the Vancouver Club. In 2003, Tom was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada. Tom's life was not all work and no play. Until very recently he attended the weekly Round Table luncheon at the Vancouver Club, played bridge with fearsome skill and aplomb, and looked forward every spring to fly fishing at his beloved Pennask Lake. In the early years, he fished with Daphne and later with his children and good Friends from the Harry Hawthorne Foundation. He will be remembered by his family and Friends as a highly intelligent, respectful man who was so proud that all his children and grandchildren placed the same emphasis on education as he did. A memorial service will be held at Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard Street, on Wednesday, November 9 at 2: 00.

Marianne BLUGER, Poet: (1945-2005)
A victim of breast cancer, she died the day she published her 10th volume of poetry, titled The Eternities
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, November 25, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Marianne BLUGER wrote poetry because, as she once said, it was all she was ever good at. Only those very close to her know whether that bit of characteristic modesty was really true. The rest of us just know that she was a very, very good poet.
Although not a household name, Ms. BLUGER published 10 volumes of clean, precise, evocative verse ranging from intense lyrical poems to delicate, spare examples of haiku and tanka (traditionally, 31 syllables in five lines). She was among Canada's leading and most respected practitioners of Japanese poetic traditions, admittedly not a big community, but her work won a Canada Council Arts Award and the Archibald Lampman Award for Poetry. She had a strong following in the United States, where she won first prize in the annual Tanka Splendor contest, and in Japan, which honoured her with the Hoshito-Mori Prize.
She worked until the breast cancer, first diagnosed 13 years ago, claimed her, correcting her poems by ear as her husband read them at her bedside. She died on the day her 10th volume was launched in Toronto. It is titled The Eternities.
A deeply religious, even mystical Anglican, Ms. BLUGER also drew on her Jewish heritage, a long experience with Zen meditation, and western political activism. Her haikus and tanka have been likened to photographs or paintings, providing quick snapshots, but in three dimensions. Known for their Zen-like simplicity and grace, they describe mundane events such as highway driving and the onset of winter as things of beauty. As one critic said, they are about how to see.
"There was absolutely no B.S. in her work, no pretense at all," said Richard Stevenson, an old friend of Ms. BLUGER's who teaches poetry at Lethbridge Community College. "It was all stripped down to the barest elements. She made it look easy."
She wasn't published until 1981, when a collection titled The Thumbless Man is at the Piano made its appearance. She was 36 at the time. Other volumes included Gathering Wild (1987), Tamarack & Clearcut (1997), a book of haiku illustrated with photographs by Rudi Haas, and Scissor, Paper, Woman (2000). A 1998 volume, Gusts, was the first book-length collection of tanka published in Canada, and inspired a journal by the same name devoted entirely to the form.
"Hats off to you, Marianne, for showing the rest of us untutored louts how it's done," enthused Mr. Stevenson in reviewing this year's publication of Ms. BLUGER's book of tanka, Zen Mercies/Small Satoris. "This book, rightfully, should inspire generations of poets interested in the unvarnished, real McCoy."
Like this lean offering from Gusts:
In a ruined orchard
among drenched leaves
I found you these
mist-silvered
fat blue plums.
Mr. BLUGER's poems reflect a deep spirituality and connectedness to nature, notes Marilyn ROSE, a Brock University expert on 20th-century Canadian women poets. While John McCrae's In Flanders Fields has become a kind of anthem for these occasions, consider Ms. BLUGER's cut-to-the-bone haiku, Remembrance Day, from Early Evening Pieces (2003).
bagpipes wheeze
through the cenotaph mist
a thin line of vets
As Prof. ROSE points out, loss is conveyed in just three lines, 11 words and a single image. Economical? More than any editor would dare dream.
Don't be fooled, though. That sort of austerity takes passion, the same kind that drove her love for "that poor radical, Jeshua, the Christ" in The Eternities, which is mostly a homage to her father, Walter Vladimir BLUGER. A mathematician who died in 1986, her father was a convert to his wife's Anglicanism but did not divulge that he had been a Jewish Holocaust survivor until his daughter was an adult. Born in Berlin to parents who had fled Russian pogroms, he escaped to Britain but was interned in a prison camp. Two ships later took the inmates to safety, one vessel going to Canada and the other to Australia. The latter was sunk, with all aboard.
For a German Jew's daughter
how exactly was she to conduct the
business of life
when sipping a soda at the mall
she would feel fraught happiness
as some kind of criminal failure
of consciousness
Add Zen to the mix. In the late 1960s, Ms. BLUGER dropped out of medical school to marry a Korean refugee and Zen master. That was after she had turned down an offer to study philosophy at Oxford following her graduation from McGill University, where she befriended the poet Louis Dudek.
Though meditation and Zen's stillness appealed to her and influenced her work, the troubled marriage didn't last. Her poem, The Zen Master's Wife, hinted at the trauma.
On the other hand, a robust personality seemed to become even fuller:
On my personal
Jewish Zen Christian
Calendar
every day Pesah
every day Easter
As for making a living, Ms. BLUGER spent 25 years administering the Ottawa-based Canadian Writers' Foundation, which provides assistance to authors in financial need.
It was only in her late 30s that she came to see her talent as God-given.
"Poetry moves me to a kind of reverence," she once wrote. "When I engage with poetry, I become contemplative and mystically transported to a deeper awareness, to a kind of enlivened, prayerful consciousness and to gratitude...
"Poetry soothes and heals me... all I am any good at is poems."
In 1991, she married Larry NEILY, an avid birder and fellow nature lover whose on-line updates on his wife's failing health during her last two months moved readers to tears.
Ms. BLUGER co-founded Christians Against Apartheid and the Tabitha Foundation, which brings humanitarian aid to Cambodia and has helped thousands of women there set up small businesses. She ran her Ottawa church's Sunday school for years, and visited the sick and elderly.
Not much frightened her, says Mr. NEILY, "but she was often bought to tears by the meanness of other people."
She did, however, see mostly good in people, recalls fellow Ottawa poet Ronnie R. BROWN. " She was happiest to acknowledge people and tell them she cared for them. I never saw anyone face death with such radiance. She profoundly believed she would meet with us later and that her work would live on. And it will."
Indeed, a posthumous volume, Nude With Scar -- the manuscript she edited on her deathbed -- is due out next year.
Marianne Sasha Bluger NEILY was born in Ottawa on August 28, 1945, and died there of cancer on October 29, 2005. She was 60. She leaves her husband, her mother, two children, one grandchild and three siblings.

Lisa BROWN, 41, suffered in silence
But family speaks up about the depression that killed her
'I looked for it. I could never see it,' anguished father says
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Lisa BROWN was a cherished daughter, beloved sister, generous friend -- all those clichés of death notices, but in this case all so true. She was also a suicide.
The 41-year-old woman with the flashing dark eyes, and gleaming thick curls she hated and her mother loved, killed herself in her St. George St. apartment last October 14. Two days later, her parents, Dan and Fran BROWN, who live in Waterloo, received her apartment keys in the mail, along with the rent payment stubs.
Their life has never been the same since.
Along with the despair and pain of losing a child, they have been haunted by guilt and feelings of failure because they couldn't protect her, the "if onlys" and the "what ifs" and all the "why, why whys?"
Not long before she ended her life, Lisa BROWN was at her parents' home downloading music from the Internet, telling her mother with affectionate exasperation that she was wearing the wrong shade of lipstick -- again. "Isn't that what all daughters do?" Fran BROWN says, smiling at the memory.
Now they know their daughter was depressed, although she never indicated it to them. "I looked for it. I could never see it," Dan BROWN says. Fran BROWN calls it "the mask" and wonders if Lisa hid her depression because so much of society is uncomfortable acknowledging it.
The family decided they wouldn't hide the cause of Lisa's death at the Toronto service, Fran BROWN instructed the rabbi to acknowledge her daughter's final act along with "her beautiful life," and her older brother Paul addressed it in his eulogy.
"What we are all hoping for is that the message is out there that this is a disease like any other," he says.
"If Lisa had had heart illness or cancer, we would have discussed it," Fran BROWN says. "But she had a brain disorder and the brain is part of the body. Why on earth isn't brain disorder discussed? Why do people turn their backs?"
Compounding her pain is the fear she has seen in the eyes of some of her neighbours and Friends. Suicide is one of society's last taboos, but the code of silence it invokes also wounds. Fran BROWN has come to believe it may even contribute to the stigma of a mental illness, let alone the act of a suicide.
And that is why she and her family agreed to talk to media about Lisa.
"I have to help raise awareness in order to lower the ugly stigma," Fran BROWN says. "The only way it won't happen to others is if we don't sweep it under the rug any more. I'll be the voice Lisa didn't have."
Waterloo Region bereavement counsellor Dena MOITOSO says having a community acknowledge the death is an important part of mourning and a necessary part of grieving for the families. "Suicide describes the death, not the life. But if we as society aren't able to talk about the death, then we can't talk about the life."
MOITOSO leads three bereavement groups a year made up exclusively of relatives of suicides. "Unfortunately they are always full," she says.
The latest figures from Statistics Canada record 3,681 suicides in 1997, or a rate of 12.3 per 100,000 population. The World Health Organization has deemed suicide a global crisis. The suicide rate is up 60 per cent in the last 45 years, catapulting it to a place among the three leading causes of death of people aged 15 to 44.
MOITOSO believes it helps families to understand the medical basis of the suicide act, otherwise they take on the burden of blame for themselves.
"We as a society need to know there is a malignant form of depression and a benign form of depression," she says.
Lisa BROWN grew up in a home with all the prerequisites of a happy girlhood: the ballet and piano lessons, the family ski days, the collection of dolls from around the world and 6 Elisa Place, the two-storey, red-shuttered dollhouse with the tile roof her parents made for her on her 6th birthday. They have kept the essay she wrote in Grade 8 on children with special needs -- "other kids wrote about their holidays," her mother recalls with fierce pride.
She studied business at the University of Western Ontario, sharing a house on Central Ave. with three other girls, including Laurie MORGAN, her best friend. After graduation she was off to Israel, where she spent a year in a kibbutz, and was involved in a serious relationship.
Back in Toronto, she worked for Ontario Hydro, then National Trust. It was a job, not a career, her parents think. It was not something she talked about, MORGAN says.
"I tried to ask her about work, but she would just say it was fine," says MORGAN, a teacher and mother of three girls living in Caledon East. "It was difficult to have a conversation focused on her even for a brief time."
Lisa BROWN was that rare breed, a gifted listener, who was genuinely interested in the minutiae of her friend's and family's lives.
When she visited, Lisa would arrive at the bus depot loaded with gifts for MORGAN's girls.
They called her "Auntie Lisa" and she always seemed to know which Groovy Girl outfit was the coveted one and the latest, greatest book.
She was helping MORGAN write a memoir about her homesteading ancestors, doing line edits, researching sources, taping a relevant documentary.
Two years ago, she was the powerhouse behind her mother's driveway hosta plant sale that raised several thousand dollars for a nearby facility for disabled children.
Mother and daughter were so close they were each other's best Friends, but Fran began to worry when her daughter lost her job three years ago and never found another one. Always quiet, Lisa became a private, guarded person.
Laurie MORGAN didn't know Lisa had lost her job until 18 months ago, when Fran BROWN told her. "I tried many times in an indirect way to talk about it," she says. She and Lisa had a "giggly" phone conversation just a week before her death. "Had I thought (suicide) was a possibility I would have been knocking her door down."
She says she has vowed to finish her family's story and dedicate it to Lisa.
To help himself understand his sister's death, Paul BROWN joined Bereaved Families of Ontario where he is taking courses so he can facilitate the association's new seminars and meetings for bereaved adult siblings.
Her parents are setting up a memorial fund in Lisa's name to help raise awareness and lower the stigma of depression. Fran BROWN wants to speak to service and community groups and visit schools.
"I will do this for you and the millions out there suffering in silence," she recently wrote late one night in a note to her daughter. "Together, sweetheart, we will make a difference."
Cheques for the Lisa Brown Memorial Fund can be made out to the Benjamin Foundation and sent to c/o the Lisa Brown Memorial Fund, 3429 Bathurst Street, Toronto, Ontario, M6A 2CE.

Stabbings kill woman, 62, injure daughter
Neighbours watch in horror through patio door as woman attacked
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
A Toronto family that spans five generations has to find a way to go on without their "Nana" after she was stabbed to death in an incident that also left her daughter critically injured.
The man who attacked them was shot dead minutes later by Toronto police.
Just before that, a teenage girl described by family members as the dead woman's granddaughter escaped death when a group of neighbours fought off the attacker's attempt to drag her back inside a townhouse at 1898 Sheppard Ave. W. near Jane St.
Pandora WHITE/WHYTE, 62, was killed late Friday in her home by her adoptive brother, Ucal LAUZON, 34, family members and neighbours said as they gathered outside the home yesterday.
"We lost the major link to a chain, the major source to a family that stays together," said Kathleen MILLINGTON, a family member who spoke to the Star outside the neat townhouse where WHITE/WHYTE lived with her granddaughter, Rochelle.
Horrified neighbours watched shortly after 10: 30 p.m. Friday as the man they identified as Lauzon, described by family members as an adoptive brother, stabbed WHITE/WHYTE's daughter Marcia ALLYNE, 37, just metres away on the other side of a glass sliding door.
A neighbour who wanted to be identified only as Kevin said he couldn't see a knife, but Lauzon struck Allyne repeatedly with an object.
"(Allyne) fought (back)," Kevin said. "I really respected that."
Minutes later, Lauzon was shot dead by police officers who arrived on the scene, neighbours said. He was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook hospital early yesterday.
Neighbours in the townhouse complex said they heard officers shout to Lauzon to drop his weapon several times before he was shot.
The provincial Special Investigations Unit, which probes civilian deaths involving police, is taking over the investigation.
A press release from the Special Investigations Unit said police officers arrived at approximately 11: 02 p.m. and found Allyne lying outside the house with "serious stab wounds."
"A Toronto Police Service officer was involved in a confrontation with a 34-year-old man, resulting in shots being fired."
Allyne is in critical condition at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre.
MILLINGTON told reporters WHITE/WHYTE was a "law-abiding citizen" and said the incident had nothing to do with drugs or any other kind of crime. "... I want that stated," she said.
Neighbours said Rochelle was in the house when the violence started and tried twice to get out.
The first time Lauzon dragged her back inside in front of horrified onlookers.
When she escaped a second time, she was taken inside the home of neighbour Zolikha WARDAK, whose family phoned 911.
"She was (covered) in so much blood, I th
