Dottie WILSON
By David WILSON, Friday, November 25, 2005, Page A24
Hospice pioneer, stepmother, wife. Born September 16, 1923, in Aurora, Ontario Died June 1 in Bayside, New York of heart failure, aged 81.
Dottie WILSON fervently believed that the traditional practice of forcing terminally ill patients through a gauntlet of pain in their process of dying, in the unrealistic, faint hope of miraculous recovery was morally indefensible, unnecessary and barbaric. And so in 1974, she became captivated with the new field of hospice and palliative-care medicine, just then being introduced into Canada at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal by Dr. Balfour Mount.
She immersed herself in the hospice movement, becoming the administrator of the palliative care service at the Royal Victoria Hospital, North America's first hospital-based hospice. In 1979, we left Quebec and moved to Chevy Chase, Md., to work with Elm Services Inc., one of the largest U.S. health care consulting firms. As their hospice consultant, she worked internationally with local health care organizations, teaching and encouraging hospice development.
In 1982, after completing a feasibility study of a hospice for children at Saint Mary's Hospital for Children in Bayside, New York Dottie was retained to oversee its design, construction and startup. The facility became the first hospice for children in the world. After its completion, she remained as its director for five years until her retirement.
Born Dorothy Nettie CLARKE in Aurora, Ontario, to Caroline and Ernest CLARKE, she was the second of three children, between older sister Mary Louise and younger brother Douglas.
Many years ago, I asked her father what he thought was the most important thing about a sign for my new store. I was stunned when he answered "that it not fall down." Yet it was fundamental, down-to-earth and revealed his methodical, basic and practical way of thinking. I believe that her father instilled that way of looking at things into her.
After graduating with a degree in sociology from the University of Toronto in 1946, she worked for several years with Dr. Perry Culver at the Massachusetts General Hospital until she moved to Montreal in 1951, where she became a systems and procedures analyst for what was then the RCA Victor company. She then became Canada's first female management consultant with the Montreal accounting firm of Riddell, Stead, Graham and Hutchison.
In 1959, she married David WILSON, a Montreal businessman and later a psychoanalyst and group therapist in New York City. This marriage was her second.
Dottie is remembered for her skill in empowering the infant dreams of nascent startups in the health care field. Her expertise was honed in guiding the development of her husband's many startup projects.
After her retirement from Saint Mary's, Dottie helped Dr. Louis Ormont create the Center for Group Studies. Ironically, Dottie herself was forced into the gauntlet of severe pain by the development of an excruciating ulcer during a recent hospitalization for disorientation. She knew that common hospice protocols for wound care might have avoided this tragedy, so, after weeks of pointless suffering, and recognizing the hopelessness of her situation, she chose to enter a local hospice program. She knew that the hospice focus on the quality of life, rather than clinging to life at any cost, would help her win the relief she deserved.
She is survived by her husband David WILSON, her nephews Rory CAMERON, Gordon CAMERON and David CLARKE, and her nieces Susan CAMERON, Margaret McCUTCHEON, Wendy ZAROWSKI and Sandra RANA. Stepsons David Andrew WILSON, Daniel Thompson WILSON and Douglas S. WILSON will sorely miss her.
David is Dottie's husband.

MacDONALD, Norienne (née RANAHAN)
(February 24, 1915-September 20, 2005)
The old legs, have gotten weary and I felt it was time to join Mac. After all, it's been 3 years since he left my side after 60 years together. John and I were blessed with 3 wonderful children and their families, Mary and Dennis (STARKEY,) in Durham, John and Debra (recently deceased), in Goderich and Rick and Barbara (BIGGAR) in Tecumseh. I was privileged to watch my grandchildren, Brianne, Kyle and Sean grow into young adults. We moved from London to Saint Thomas where we lived for close to 55 years and the majority of those years were in our home we built in Lynhurst. My life was a fulfilling one, raising our 3 children and embarking on a teaching career when they were older, teaching at Holy Angels Elementary School and at St. Joseph's High School. Being elected as a trustee for the Elgin County Roman Catholic Separate School Board and being the only woman on the Board was quite an experience. Three years ago, I moved to Windsor, a sudden move with little time for goodbyes. So it was quite a treat to return to Saint Thomas to celebrate my 90th birthday with all my old Friends in February. Thanks to the "pot luck" group who kept in touch and a special thanks to my close friend, Norma ROCHE, who sent me weekly notes keeping me up on the news in Saint Thomas. Mom was very active in the community over the years with a long standing involvement in the Cancer Society, (serving two terms as president of the Elgin County Unit), the Saint Thomas Golf and Country Club both as a golfer (serving a term as President of the Ladies Division) and as a Bridge Club member. She was a committed volunteer for the Rotary Music Festival for decades, and served a term as President of the local chapter of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. One of Mom's favourite activities was the bike ride for cancer, which she did into her 80's. For her commitment to the community, she received the "Saint Thomas Citizen of the year award" with Dad, an unexpected but well deserved honour. She was an amazing mother and we will miss her terribly. Thanks to those care workers at Sunrise Assisted Living who went beyond the call of duty and a special thanks to the staff at Extendicare Tecumseh and Dr. Ian McLEOD, who took such terrific care of mom and allowed her to keep her dignity as her health failed over the past 9 months. The family will receive their Friends at the R.E. Allen Funeral Chapel, 31 Elgin Street, Saint Thomas, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Friday afternoon and evening. Funeral service will be held at Holy Angels Church, 502 Talbot Street, Saint Thomas, Saturday morning at 10 a.m. After cremation, interment will be made in St. Peter's Cemetery, London. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Ontario Heart Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
