MUIRHEAD, Amelia “Ivy” (formerly AYRES, née STARLING)
Amelia “Ivy” MUIRHEAD passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 17, 2005 in Caressant Care nursing home in Woodstock, Ontario, at the age of 99. Amelia was the widow of Gavin Stuart MUIRHEAD and Wilfrid Maxwell AYRES. Amelia (née STARLING) was born in 1906 in Cheveley, England. Lovingly called “Nanny” by those close to her, Amelia worked as a governess for the family of an English country gentleman and then for a prominent family in Denmark. Her service afforded her a unique opportunity to travel throughout Europe. She married her first husband Wilfrid AYRES in Cheveley in 1929 before immigrating to Canada in 1930 on the Empress of Scotland. The young couple settled in Montreal, Quebec where they raised two daughters and a son. Wilfrid passed away in 1965 following a battle with lung cancer. Amelia volunteered her time as president of the Cancer Society at Saint Mark's Church in St. Laurent, Quebec. She married her second husband Gavin MUIRHEAD in 1968 in St. Laurent and then moved with him to Woodstock in 1977. Amelia soon became an active member of Old St. Paul's Anglican Church and was involved in numerous church endeavours. She was accomplished in many arts and crafts and was especially adept at crochet and knitting. Her garden afforded her countless hours of enjoyment and she enjoyed walks and new learning experiences. Amelia remained active for many years after Gavin passed on in 1985 but when her own health started to fail she moved into a retirement residence before settling into the Caressant Care nursing home.
She leaves behind her son John AYRES and his wife Eliane Leclerc AYRES and two daughters Brenda MAVER (née AYRES) and Sheila WALKER (née AYRES) and daughter-in-law Elaine AYRES (née FAHRNER:) grandchildren Robin AYRES, Rand AYRES, Ken MAVER, Kathryn BROWNE (née MAVER), Robert WALKER, Tobin WALKER and Joanne TATRO (née WALKER); great grandchildren Robert MAVER, Michael MAVER, Andrew BROWNE, Sean BROWNE, Jaime WALKER, Kevin WALKER, and Keliann WALKER.

George BUTLER, Musician 1936-2005
Alabama-born 'blower' whose poor beginnings meant he was born to play the blues put down roots in Chicago but later took his 'swamp harp' sound and settled in Windsor, Ontario
By Brad WHEELER, Wednesday, March 23, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- He held the harmonica upside down, and wasn't supposed to live long after birth. George (Wild Child) BUTLER, a robust, barrel-chested blues performer and composer who possessed a sturdy baritone voice, forged a long career marked by sporadic recordings and under-recognition. With a beaming moon face and a star-emblazoned front tooth, the gregarious musician, it was said, never met a stranger.
Although portrayed as a Chicago bluesman, Mr. BUTLER's style was singular and owed as much to his upbringing in Alabama as his time in the Windy City. The damp, earthy sound of his harmonica playing was usually described as a "swamp harp" tone. Like many budding musicians in the rural south in the 1940s, 12-year-old George was too poor to buy a proper harmonica. Instead, he fashioned a crude instrument from an old Prince Albert tobacco can, half-filling it with thin gravel and cutting holes in the end into which he moaned.
Eventually acquiring a store-bought harmonica, the self-taught Mr. BUTLER developed prowess despite the fact that he had learned to produce the requisite bluesy groans, squawks and whimpers while playing in an unconventional manner -- he held his mouth harp upside down. It wasn't until he was 25 that he found out that the high notes on the harmonica were usually to the right. He continued, however, to play the instrument the way he had learned. "The sound that I got was so uniquely my own," Mr. BUTLER recalled years later, "that people encouraged me to continue doing it my own way."
In all likelihood, the strong-willed musician needed very little prodding. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Mr. BUTLER was a songwriter, performing and recording his own compositions instead of covering others' material. As well, suggestions by record label producers that he stray from standard electric blues to incorporate rock and soul influences were not well-received by the musician. "The way I do my blues, that's me," Mr. BUTLER once said. "The blues isn't something that I do, it's something that I am."
Though it may sound clichéd, it is not unreasonable to suggest that Mr. BUTLER was born to play the blues. The son of 13-year-old Betty Mae BUTLER, he was the eldest of nine children. His humble beginnings extended to his own condition -- he was in such perilous health as an infant that family members who fed him "greens juice" in the morning were never quite sure if he would still be alive in the evening when they returned from working the fields.
He survived, and then some -- before he could even walk, the tyke had earned a nickname. The rambunctious boy took to harassing the women who visited his mother on Sundays after church. He would crawl across the floor of the family's modest dwelling outside Montgomery, Alabama, and pull on their skirts and legs. His mother began calling him "leg man" until neighbours politely suggested that "wild child" might be more appropriate.
By the time he was 5, he was already singing the blues. At fish fries and all-night jukes, young George would be plunked on table tops and expected to sing. As a young teen, he began working the fields, picking corn from sunrise to sundown for $1.50 a day. Escaping a life of hard labour was on his mind when he wrote one of his first songs: "I'm leaving here early in the morning. Peoples, I'm about to go out of my mind. I'm going to find me some companion, even if she's deaf, dumb, crippled and blind."
In the mid-1950s, Mr. BUTLER made good on his promise and left Alabama for Chicago. There, he struck up a Friendship with Eddie Taylor, a pioneering guitarist and a crucial figure in the founding of postwar Chicago blues. The pair made a rather odd couple -- the expressive, jovial harmonica player paired with a guitarist of serious and reserved temperament. These were the glory days of the Chicago blues scene, but even so the young harpist and singer was unable to make his mark.
By the late 1950s, Mr. BUTLER was gigging professionally as a bandleader and moving around. He recorded his first sides in 1963 on the Sharp label, in Montgomery. Aching All Over and Down in the Chill, a harmonica instrumental, were both original compositions. At one point, he ended up at the doorstep of Buddy Guy, a Chicago guitarist who worked steadily for the Chess label. Today, Mr. Guy is regarded as the greatest living blues guitarist, but at the time he was a session player -- one of the very best, but not someone who could offer much help to a harmonica player looking for a record contract.
Back in the South, Mr. BUTLER recorded with celebrated Texas country blues artist Lightnin' Hopkins for the Jewel label. Eventually, he recorded his own material with Jewel, backed by well-known musicians such as Jimmy Dawkins and Big Walter Horton. Mr. BUTLER's association with the label, however, was not a lucrative endeavour. Rather than release an album, the company leased the material to another label, Charly, which did issue an album (Open Up Baby) but failed to compensate Mr. BUTLER, who only found out about the record when he came across it in a store.
In 1969, Mr. BUTLER joined the Sam Lay Blues Revival Band, a loose touring collective formed by drummer Sam Lay that included his old friend Eddie Taylor and guitarist Jimmy Rogers, among others. Mr. BUTLER spent the succeeding years travelling to Houston, New Orleans, Detroit and, eventually, Windsor. While touring in the Yukon in the early 1980s, the musician met a Canadian who would eventually become his wife and manager. The couple chose the Windsor area because it was as close to Chicago as they could get and still be in Canada, according to his wife, Elaine.
Mr. BUTLER, who wrote more than 200 songs, recorded for a variety of labels; his last album, Sho' Nuff, was released in 2001. The recordings were characterized by what came to be known as "snapping blues" -- so described for the syncopated manner in which Mr. BUTLER sang and played the harmonica. If commercial success wasn't in the cards, the musician was highly praised by peers and critics alike. The great blues composer and producer Willie Dixon described Mr. BUTLER's "way-out strange voice," and said that he could hear it between Howlin' Wolf and Lightnin' Hopkins. "Ain't nothing been around like that."
Mr. BUTLER slowed down the pace of his career in the past few years, choosing to go fishing as much or more than perform. He played Toronto's Black Swan as recently as 1999, and his final performance occurred last summer at the Snowbird Jazz and Blues Festival in Utah.
Neighbours would find Mr. BUTLER occasionally on various farm ponds and fishing holes in Stoney Point, Ontario, where he liked to fish a little and play his harmonica. Once, with his back to the road, he blew his harp and, unbeknownst to him, a crowd gathered. He finished one song, and was about to put his instrument away when the listeners told the surprised player to continue. "Don't stop now," they said.
George BUTLER was born in Autaugaville, Alabama, on October 1, 1936. He died in a Windsor, Ontario, hospital on March 1, 2005, as a result of a pulmonary embolism. He was 68. He is survived by his wife, Elaine, and by a son and two daughters from a previous marriage.

Toronto jazzman played in legendary 1953 concert
Canadian Press, Thursday, June 16, 2005, Page S11
Guelph, Ontario -- Hartland WHEELER, who played with bebop giants DIzzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Charlie Mingus and Max Roach at a legendary jazz concert in Toronto in 1953, died on Friday in Guelph, Ontario, of prostate cancer. He was 83.
Mr. WHEELER was born in Toronto but had lived in Guelph since Mr. WHEELER's mother bought him his first instrument -- a clarinet when he was 15. He mastered the clarinet and the tenor saxophone, his signature instruments over his 60-year career.
One of his greatest moments came on May 15, 1953, when he played with Mr. Gillespie and company in a now-legendary Massey Hall performance.
His career took off in the late 1940s when he was featured in Ellis McClintock's band.
Until he became ill in recent months, Mr. WHEELER continued to travel across Ontario in Jim Galloway's Wee Big Band and the Canadian Glenn Miller Tribute Band, of which he and lifelong friend Gordie EVANS were founders.

Hart WHEELER
By Murray GINSBERG, Monday, December 5, 2005, Page A24
Musician, friend, photographer, recording technician. Born December 22, 1921, in Toronto. Died June 10 in Guelph, Ontario, of prostate cancer, aged 83.
Hart WHEELER was a dear friend, and one of the most intelligent individuals I ever knew. He also went out of his way so many times to help others.
Hart worked professionally as a jazz saxophonist from the age of 18 and was truly one of a kind: Talent oozed from every pore. Not only was he an accomplished musician, he was also an accomplished photographer as well as an amazing recording technician who carried his equipment wherever he went.
Quite often we would meet at my apartment for lunch or dinner. With Friends, mostly musicians, seated around the table, the stories would fly from everyone's lips while Hart would have his microphone turned on, catching every snippet of conversation "for posterity," he would say.
And each story always drew a chorus of laughs only to be topped by another story and more laughs. Those were wonderful times and I always knew that without Hart present, those parties would not have been quite the same.
He often told a charming story about how he got into music as a youth in Toronto. He said he was 15 years old and his rich aunt recognized some sort of latent talent in him because he was playing bones and harmonica in public school. So she went to Whaley Royce, the music store on Yonge Street, and bought a clarinet. That decision, he said, affected his whole life.
At the same time, he said he discovered Benny Goodman. The first thing he wanted to do was play Benny Goodman solos. The clarinet had come with ten lessons and the teacher showed him where to put his fingers. From then on, he said he got Benny Goodman records and learned Benny Goodman solos by himself. And that was how he got started.
During the Second World War, Hart served in the Royal Canadian Air Force band. After the war, he became a very busy musician. Several times he guested for director Norman JEWISON on his Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television series The Denny Vaughan Show. He also performed with the big bands of Bobby Gimby, Ellis McLintock, Art Hallman and Mart Kenney, as well as Jim Galloway's Wee Big Band and the Canadian Tribute to Glenn Miller.
In the Miller band, Hart played and sang as a featured performer. Whenever he sang songs such as Chattanooga Choo Choo and I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, his shining personality lit up the entire ballroom.
One of his greatest moments came on May 15, 1953, when he played alongside jazz giants DIzzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Charles Mingus and Max Roach in the legendary Massey Hall jazz concert when these musicians played together for the only time in their lives.
Hart's high level of intelligence was evident when I once asked him why he loved to play. His answer was direct and to the point: "It's tied up with emotion; it's tied up with ego; it's an artistic endeavour where your output is immediate. A lot of artistic output can take years to realize, or weeks or days, depending on what the finished product is -- a photograph, a painting, a novel or a motion picture. None are as immediate as music.
"When you play an instrument, it's not just your eye and your hand painting a picture. It's the immediate result that pleases the senses. It's a continuing, revolving beautiful experience."
Hart is survived by sons Hartland, Ted and Stacey, their wives and children. And sadly missed by his cherished cousin, Denna BENN.
Murray is Hart's friend.

MAGUIRE, Jane Kingsbury (née WHEELER)
Peacefully on December 4, 2005 at Belmont House in her 84th year. Reunited with her beloved husband Richard (Dick) who died in 1999, Jane will be missed by her children Linda, David (Marie-Noël), Alan (Martha), John, and Margot (Bruce). She was a very special "Manna" to grandchildren Caitlin (Fulvio), Robin (Ryan), Alice and John, and to great granddaughter Isabella. Predeceased by her parents Norman and Marguerite WHEELER and sister Betty ETHERINGTON.
Educated at Havergal College, Jane married Dick MAGUIRE in 1942. During their 57 years together they created a strong, loving family life at their home in Thorncrest Village and at "The Farm" where Jane loved to garden and find bargains at country auctions. Jane was able to use her knowledge of antiques and collectibles to help others as a long-time volunteer with Goodwill. A lover of art, architecture and design, she accumulated a garage full of treasures that "just need a little work." Jane had a sparkling personality, steely determination, and fierce loyalty. She also had an unusual talent for finding four-leafed clovers that amazed her children and grandchildren.
Thank you to the staff of Belmont House for their compassion and care for Jane and her family during her final days. Cremation has taken place at a private family gathering. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.
