B. Marion AXFORD
By Grant SMITH, Wednesday, April 27, 2005, Page A22
Teacher, guidance counsellor, honorary mother. Born December 20, 1917, near Delhi, Ontario Died February 21, in Toronto, of natural causes, aged 87.
Marion AXFORD was born on a farm south of Delhi and from her earliest years, she dreamed of becoming a teacher. She spent hours in the woodshed behind the house playing with a blackboard and chalk to teach spelling and arithmetic to imaginary kids. She would admit years later, however, that as a child, she ran low on self-esteem. The desire to teach and the search for self-esteem in herself and others would consume her for the rest of her life.
She attended McMaster University in Hamilton, obtaining her B.A. in 1939 with a major in mathematics. These were difficult times for women to make their way in the world. She applied to teach mathematics at Elmira High School in 1941. When the board reviewed her application, one member opined, "Women can't teach math," to which the director replied, "This one can." And she did for the next five years. Marion followed this by becoming the first woman to serve as registrar and dean of women at Waterloo College.
In 1952, she returned to her hometown to teach mathematics at Delhi Secondary School where she met an inspector from the provincial Department of Education named Olive PALMER. Olive married John DIEFENBAKER, the future Prime Minster of Canada. She provided Marion with the first nuance of a vision that would turn into a lifetime mission to develop guidance programs for students. In the process, the two became the greatest of Friends.
In 1955, she accepted a job in Agincourt followed by a moved to the Scarborough Board of Education as a supervisor of guidance, working at the elementary level to help students select courses for high school. This involved ground-breaking work to develop a guidance course, on-the-job-training in elementary schools, and teaching other teachers how to deliver the program.
Everything in her life, however, was interrupted in late November, 1969. Marion suffered a stroke and in a display of courage and perseverance she made it through the night despite predictions to the contrary. She spent 11 weeks recovering in hospital and would be back to work in August of 1970. She admitted later that she had to get better because the children needed her. A year later she was chief supervisor of Guidance in the Scarborough Board of Education; she retired in 1979.
Ten years after retiring she sat down to write a book about enhancing self-esteem in children. The book was called Me 'n' You, and it finally exposed her for what she was; the Queen of Self-Esteem, the Hug Lady and a creator of the "warm fuzzies."
In recognition of her outstanding service and dedication to teaching and guidance, in 1975 she was honoured with a "Woman of the Year Award" presented by the Ontario Government for outstanding contribution to education in the province. In 1992, the Ontario School Counsellors Association created The Marion Axford Award to be presented in recognition of an outstanding contribution to guidance.
Marion never married, instead choosing to adopt all the children she met along the way. One very special child, Lynda FORGET, lived next door to her in Agincourt. At age 5, Lynda adopted Marion. Reflecting on Marion's life and influence, she said: "When I think of Marion I always think of love; her love of children, her unconditional love of family and Friends and her love of life." This was the heart that drove the spirit. For Marion, reaching out to help children was not a job. It was a love affair. The world will be a better place because she touched the lives of thousands of children and everyone who met her.
Grant SMITH is Marion's cousin.
