Agnes JACKS, Ringette Promoter: 1923-2005
As a champion of a sport known as the little sister of hockey, she took up the banner from Sam JACKS, its inventor
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, April 19, 2005, Page S9
In the early days, enthusiastic young girls and women flooded onto outdoor rinks in northern Ontario, wearing discarded hockey skates and clutching broken hockey sticks. Up and down the ice they skated, chasing a ring. Most of the players didn't wear uniforms, and some preferred pink sweaters and matching pink sticks to keep the neighbourhood boys away from the rink.
It was 1963, and ringette was born. Agnes JACKS was there watching the emergence of the game her husband had invented to give girls and women their own winter team sport. Over the next 40 years, she saw it grow from a handful of young women in northern Ontario to a presence in half a dozen countries around the world. In Canada alone, it counts more than 25,000 players competing on nearly 2,000 teams. Even today, the sport is primarily for women and girls.
Over the years, Ms. JACKS became known as the ringette ambassador for Canada. She tirelessly travelled the world to boost the sport that Mr. JACKS invented in North Bay when he was the city's parks and recreation director. When he died of cancer in 1975 at 59, she continued her husband's legacy.
"In the early 1960s, there was a great need for girls' and women's sports," Ms. JACKS told the Kitchener-Waterloo Record in 2003. "Sam could see the need."
Mr. JACKS patched together hockey and basketball rules to create a fluid, non-contact game that soon became one of the fastest team sports on ice. Six years after he invented ringette, which has been called the little sister to hockey, the Ontario Ringette Association was founded with a government grant of $229.27. At the time, it numbered 1,500 players in 14 communities.
The sport boomed after the mid-1970s when the other provinces took an interest and formed ringette associations. In particular, it gained a firm footing in Quebec and first appeared there in Mount Royal where it was introduced by Herb LINDER, a good friend of the JACKS. In the late 1970s, the United States also started leagues. By all accounts, former Toronto Maple Leafs coach Roger NEILSON used ringette during the late 1970s to vary routines at practice. That got the attention of the then coach of the Czechoslovak national hockey team, who took home information on the game and adopted it in training and for his country's universities.
Ms. JACKS, who became honorary president of the International Ringette Association, didn't play the game herself but sponsored trophies and scholarships for outstanding players, coaches and officials and faithfully attended as many ringette tournaments and championship events as she could. In March, she was at the Ontario provincial AA championships in Ottawa. Young athletes flocked to her to ask for autographs and for words of encouragement.
"She always told us that we were 'her girls' and you believed it," said Laura WARNER, ringette's Team Canada captain. The one bit of advice she repeatedly gave to the girls was "stay out of the penalty box." When she said this to you, said Ms. WARNER, you felt she was honestly encouraging you to play ringette in the true spirit of the game -- fair play, sportsmanship and teamwork.
Like hockey, ringette is played on ice with skates and sticks and six players on each team -- a goalie and five skaters. But instead of a puck, the players pursue a rubber ring, which must be shot into a standard hockey net. The ring is passed to another player, rather than carried from zone to zone, all of which makes it a very team-oriented game. Wingers carry bladeless, red sticks so that an official can identify them if they illegally enter their own zone. Defence players have blue sticks and are not allowed in the attacking zone. The rules allow for fast play and little congestion in any zone. While hockey has become a game associated with body contact, ringette is not. A player receives a penalty for any body contact.
Like boys' hockey, ringette is divided into divisions: petite for girls 10 years and under, tweens for 12 and under, juniors for 14 and under, belles for 17 and under, debs for 18 and under and ladies for those over 20. It is not uncommon to find 25-year-old players who first took up the game at 6. Some dedicated veterans are in their mid-50s.
When they first take up the sport, young girls can be self-conscious about wearing boys' skates but soon stop worrying about it. Eventually, they give up wearing figure skates -- even for public skating and some abandon figure skating in favour of ringette.
Ms. WARNER remembers the first time she saw Ms. JACKS. She was just 14 years old and excited to be at the opening ceremony of the national ringette championships. Suddenly everyone around her stood and started cheering. She looked up and saw a petite, Scottish woman walking onto the stage.
"As soon as she started talking you couldn't not be drawn to her. "This [was] someone with an unparalleled love of the sport," Ms. WARNER said. "You could feel her love for the game."
In 2001, Ms. JACKS was appointed a member of the Order of Canada for her devotion to the sport. "She is an example of integrity, selflessness and devotion," the citation reads. "For over 30 years, she has promoted ringette as a medium for girls and women to benefit from the physical activity and personal growth derived from team sports... She has become a goodwill ambassador, imparting the importance of perseverance, good conduct and fair play to tens of thousands of young athletes."
Agnes MacKRELL was a Scottish lass who, during the Second World War, moved to England to work in a munitions plant. It was at a dance where she met Sam JACKS, a young Canadian soldier and recreation director in the army. After the war, he took her back home with him to Canada. They arrived in Halifax and made their way to Toronto and then in 1946 to North Bay. While Ms. JACKS didn't see her husband's dream of ringette becoming an Olympic sport fulfilled, she did see it inch closer to that goal. She remained faithful to the sport and its community until the end and had planned to attend the 2005 Canadian Ringette Championships that would up in Winnipeg on Saturday.
"I love the game," Ms. JACKS told a reporter in 2003. "It has everything a sport needs -- skill, speed, passion and no checking."
Agnes JACKS was born in Scotland on August 17, 1923. She died of heart failure on April 1, 2005, at the North Bay General Hospital. She was 81. She leaves her sons Barry, Bruce and Brian; three brothers and two sisters; 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

LINDO, William Joseph " Bill" (1921-2005)
Passed away peacefully at home, Wednesday January 13, 2005, following a lengthy illness. He is survived by his devoted wife Bernice, his loving sister, Margaret McCULLOUGH, and his 7 children, Lorraine HENNESSEY, Eleanore, Elaine, Marion ZAKOS (Kingston), Christine MILCAWICH, Peter, and Marguerite. He was proud and delighted to have 15 grandchildren. Nothing was more important to him than his family. Bill often said his greatest accomplishment was his marriage to Bernice. Through her loving care and unwavering courage, he was able to live out his final months as he so dearly wished, at home, surrounded by those whom he loved, and who loved him most. As a successful entrepreneur, Bill created several manufacturing enterprises involving a wide range of products from the first artificial fire logs in Canada to windshield wiper antifreeze. His flagship company, TML Industries Ltd., the second largest can manufacturing business in Canada, continues as his legacy, operated by his son Peter, and daughters Christine and Marguerite. He also leaves behind his last venture, a fledgling start-up - Dr. Maggie Pet Food Supplements - operated by daughter Elaine. Much of his success was due to the personal integrity and concern for others that he brought to all his business dealings. His longtime business partner, Joe WOMERSLEY remained a lifelong steadfast friend as did countless colleagues, customers and employees. Bill was an exceptional athlete throughout his life. He especially distinguished himself as a senior marathon runner and triathlete, competing for the Canadian National Team in the World Champion Triathlon in 1993 at the age of 72. His stamina and dedication to physical fitness were amazing and inspirational, particularly to those who knew him as a denizen of the Willowdale Fitness Institute where he was a member for over 30 years. All of us who were privileged to know him through business, sports, or on a personal level, were touched by his generosity of spirit, his love of people, animals, nature, music, and his unbounded enthusiasm for life. We will remember him in so many ways for so much that we shared - the illuminating ideas, the smiles, the songs, the moments full of love and hope and striving, the triumphs and failures that made up his meaningful and cherished life.

LINDO, William Joseph " Bill" (1921-2005)
Passed away peacefully at home, Thursday, January 13, 2005, following a lengthy illness. He is survived by his devoted wife Bernice, his loving sister, Margaret McCULLOUGH, and his 7 children, Lorraine HENNESSEY, Eleanore, Elaine, Marion ZAKOS (Kingston), Christine MILCAWICH, Peter, and Marguerite. He was proud and delighted to have 15 grandchildren. Nothing was more important to him than his family. Bill often said his greatest accomplishment was his marriage to Bernice. Through her loving care and unwavering courage, he was able to live out his final months as he so dearly wished, at home, surrounded by those whom he loved, and who loved him most. As a successful entrepreneur, Bill created several manufacturing enterprises involving a wide range of products from the first artificial fire logs in Canada to windshield wiper antifreeze. His flagship company, TML Industries Ltd., the second largest can manufacturing business in Canada, continues as his legacy, operated by his son Peter, and daughters Christine and Marguerite. He also leaves behind his last venture, a fledgling start-up - Dr. Maggie Pet Food Supplements - operated by daughter Elaine. Much of his success was due to the personal integrity and concern for others that he brought to all his business dealings. His longtime business partner, Joe WOMERSLEY remained a lifelong steadfast friend as did countless colleagues, customers and employees. Bill was an exceptional athlete throughout his life. He especially distinguished himself as a senior marathon runner and triathlete, competing for the Canadian National Team in the World Champion Triathlon in 1993 at the age of 72. His stamina and dedication to physical fitness were amazing and inspirational, particularly to those who knew him as a denizen of the Willowdale Fitness Institute where he was a member for over 30 years.

Crossing the finish line his specialty
Bill LINDO swam, cycled and ran almost to the end
Top triathlete was also a successful businessman
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
This is a story of a life in the fast lane. A very long fast lane.
Bill LINDO, 83, is believed to have been Canada's oldest triathlete, entering and often winning the Olympic distance races of 1.5-kilometre swims, 40-kilometre cycles and 10-kilometre runs.
He thought it was easier than marathon running -- although he did a lot of that as well, including a personal best on April 13, 1981, his 60th birthday, at the prestigious Boston Marathon.
He'd been planning to stop running marathons after that one -- he always over-trained and he always sustained some injury or other -- but he did so well, easily conquering Heartbreak Hill at Mile 22, and felt so good crossing the finish line, he decided to revise that plan and keep on running.
There were plenty more finish lines for LINDO. He ran marathons in Toronto, Ottawa, New York, Chicago, a couple of more times in Boston, and he had the T-shirts to prove it. In 1992, when he was 71, he competed for the Canadian national team at the world championship triathlon event held at Deerhurst Inn in Muskoka, the first time ever in Canada. He crossed that finish line looking as if he had just run around the block.
Perhaps that is what it felt like, too. LINDO had been training hard for that meet, three hours a day, six days a week, swimming six, cycling 120 and running 80 kilometres. Actually he'd been training to compete in Hawaii's famous Iron Man, infinitely more gruelling as it includes a full marathon run, and he'd been travelling around the province's triathlete circuit. He was spotted at a Guelph event and urged to try out for the national team. He qualified, but he had to be talked into competing at the world championship because it meant he would have to miss the Iron Man event.
"He told us that he couldn't say no, that they were giving him all this great stuff," his daughter Elaine LINDO said. "Red-and-white warm-up pants, swimsuit, hat, singlet, all kinds of stuff. He couldn't resist."
He was the only Canadian competing in the over-60 age categories there were nine athletes over 70. Wearing red and white and the number 1104, LINDO came fourth.
"He was the hometown hero. Everybody knew who he was," Elaine recalled. She remembered that the crowds went wild when her father came into view. "When he crossed the finish line, he looked so fresh, like he could do another triathlon. The Japanese guy could barely make it across the line."
The photo Elaine took of her father crossing the line is reproduced here. Of all the photos of all his finishes, this one was his favourite. He was upright, he was fresh and he was laughing.
LINDO died at home on January 13.
"He liked winning his categories to the point where he was the only one in his age category," said another daughter, film director Eleanore LINDO. "He wanted to compete until there was no one left."
But then LINDO decided what he really liked about the triathlon was biking, so for his 75th birthday, and in honour of what was supposed to be his retirement, he flew one of his titanium racing bikes to Amsterdam, where he rode around Holland. He then flew to Paris and rode through that city and France, and then on to to Switzerland, where he told his family he biked halfway up the Matterhorn.
Sure, they said. But maybe he really did, as his wife Bernice and their seven children well knew.
LINDO started getting fit sometime around his 50th birthday. He was out on the golf course kibitzing with some Friends and business colleagues when he commented on the girth of one of the men. Then he found out the man wore waist size 44: the same as LINDO. He joined the Y -- his family thinks it might well have been the next day -- taking up racquet ball, then squash.
Then he joined the Fitness Institute the first year it opened and got really serious about his workouts. Around the club he was famous for his endurance and fitness level, especially on the stationary bike, where he could go faster and longer than the professional hockey players working out next to him.
"Dad used to say they were wusses," said daughter Christine MILCAWICH. Here was a man who used to bike from his Beach-area home to Picton Provincial Park, bike around the park and then back home, all on a Sunday afternoon. "He had to do everything full force."
LINDO had at least two collisions with cars while training; the emergency-room doctors at Toronto East General Hospital once teased Bernice that she had brought her husband in more than all of their seven kids combined.
Sometimes he'd come in from training sessions looking tired and drained. "But he'd walk up the stairs, have a shower and be fully recovered when he came back down," his wife said.
Five years ago, he and Eleanore took up tennis. "He used me as a backboard," said Mayfair Lakeshore Racquet Club tennis coach Scott HURTUBISE. "He was remarkable. Only a small handful of people have his agility and tenacity."
LINDO grew up in Toronto's east end, where he was known as the "singing delivery boy," working at the grocery store of his buddy Steve STAVRO's father, at the corner of Queen St. E. and Coxwell Ave. A dropout after Grade 11, he was serving in Italy driving a supply truck in the middle of the action at Anzio when he vowed that if he got out of the war, he was going to settle down, get married and make something of himself. His mother decided she knew just the right girl, whom she took with her to the train station to welcome home the returning soldier. He and Bernice settled in his old family home at 11 Cherry Nook Gardens and had seven children in 10 years.
He worked in sales for a chemical company for years, taking his university degree in chemistry at night. In the early 1960s, LINDO formed a can distribution company that became the second largest in the country. His flagship company, TML Industries in Pickering, is run today by daughters Christine and Marguerite, and by Peter, his only son.
LINDO and his best friend Joe WOMERSLEY also started up Linwo Industries, a chemical packaging company. "Bill was a wizard at figures. He could set up a big quote in his head in 10 minutes," WOMERSLEY said. Entrepreneurial and adventurous, they also kick-started the first company in the country to make aerosol packaging, then another business making heavy-truck accessories, and later a company manufacturing the first artificial fireplace logs in Canada.
If things were getting tense at a meeting, or slow at a convention, LINDO would stand on his head and sing "Old Man River." If circumstances permitted, he'd stand on his head, drink a beer and belt out the song.
LINDO ran his businesses the way he ran his races, one after another after another. Soon he and WOMERSLEY were setting up a plant in Edmonton making plastic gallon jugs for antifreeze and another facility in Buffalo to wind 2.4 million cases of Stretch 'n' Seal for Colgate Palmolive in five years.
Then there was the Weed As You Walk weed killer. Dr. Maggie's Pet Food Supplement was his last business venture.
LINDO was still working four days a week and working out even more often when he was diagnosed with cancer. The last year of his life was the only time in which he'd ever been sick. Eleanore said he never gave up on the idea that he would do another triathlon. As his long-time friend WOMERSLEY said, "His heart was like a diesel motor. You can't stop that running. It was only his body that disintegrated and in the end gave out."
