Bright light for disabled is remembered
Woman with cerebral palsy worked for March of Dimes for years
By James RUSK, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page A12
A month after Janet YOUDELL, described yesterday by a former colleague as "a bright-eyed blonde with a wobbly walk," and her elderly parents died together in an apparent suicide pact, their family and Friends are left wondering why the family had to die.
"There's no way Janet should have died.... I've been crying since before Christmas," Louise SANKEY, a friend since kindergarten, said yesterday after a memorial service organized by the Ontario March of Dimes. Ms. YOUDELL worked for the agency for 14 years.
Days before Christmas, Joseph YOUDELL, 86, his wife Ruby, 79, and their daughter Janet, 49, died in their East York bungalow of carbon-monoxide poisoning.
A note warning of the danger of carbon-monoxide poisoning was pinned to the front door, and a second note was apparently found inside the house along with an outdoor barbeque. Police have ruled out foul play in the deaths.
Ms. SANKEY said she believes Ms. YOUDELL's parents felt that even with home help, they could no longer take care of their daughter, who was born with cerebral palsy, and that they did not want her to move into assisted living.
"This is the second person I know who has committed suicide because of a disability," Ms. SANKEY said.
But her memories are not all sad. When they were in kindergarten, and the Queen Mother came to visit Sunnyview School for the Disabled, the children were supposed to be seated. "But Janet and I stood up," she said.
She plans to organize a fundraising event later this year to help disabled people whose situation has become desperate.
Janet's health had deteriorated since 2000 as the result of a stroke.
Andria SPINDEL, president and chief executive officer of the Ontario March of Dimes, said that after the stroke, Janet had hoped to return to work, "but the days of full recovery never came."
Family friend Lauri Sue ROBINSON, said that Joe and Ruby YOUDELL "were the dearest people, they clearly lived their lives for Janet. They revolved around her."
She said that "I had spoken to Joe a couple of days before they died. He told me how frustrated they were with Janet's health. She had muscle spasms in her jaw that wouldn't stop, and she'd go for days where she couldn't eat."
And with a tear in her voice she said, "We're trying to understand why they chose the path. Knowing Janet, I bet it was her idea, and Joe and Ruby just would not have wanted to live without her."
Despite the way their lives ended, the picture painted of the YOUDELL family was one of achievement. Joe, a farm boy from the Kincardine area, was a tank mechanic who came back from the war and worked for Canada Post until age 65, and then as a courier for a law firm for nearly another 20 years.
Ruby provided a home for both him and their daughter.
Janet earned a degree from York University's Glendon College. And despite being advised on graduation that she should go on welfare because she was unemployable, Janet went to work for the March of Dimes.
She became one of the province's most effective advocates for the disabled.
Paul LOGAN, a past chairman of the March of Dimes, described Janet as "a whirling dervish with a mail cart," which she used to support herself as she moved around the office.
He said she was an example of how "a truly brave spirit" cannot be diminished by the difficulties of the body.
Paul RAINA, March of Dimes director of government relations and her most recent supervisor, recalled that despite her physical weakness, she was "one of the most personally empowered individuals I have ever met...."

YOUNG, Roy
In memory of a father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Roy, who passed away May 8, 1989.
Beautiful memories are wonderful things,
They last to the longest day.
They never wear out,
They never get lost
And can never be given away.
To some you may be forgotten,
To others a part of the past,
But to those who lost you
Your memory will always last
Forever remembered by Ken, Eldon, Verral, Ron and Families.

In loving memory of a Dear Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother and Sister, Athena (MANAX,) who went to be with her Lord one year ago today, March 8, 2004.
God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be
So He closed His arms around you
And whispered "Come to me"
You do not deserve what you went through
And so He gave yourest.
God's garden must be beautiful
For He only takes the best,
In time we saw you sinking
We watched you fade away.
Our hearts were almost broken.
You fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping
So peacefully from pain,
We could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
If you had spoken before you died
These are the words you'd have replied
"Weep not for me but courage take
And love one another for my sake."
Sadly missed by Bill, her husband of 60 years, daughters Athena (BILYEA,) Mary-Anne (HALL) and families.

YOUNG, Marion Katharine (née STEVENSON)
Marion Katharine YOUNG (STEVENSON.) Born April 16, 1922, in London, England, Kay died peacefully on July 13, 2005, under the good care of the staff of Victoria Hospital, London, Ontario. A sensitive, civil and gentle woman, she was ever loving and caring as wife to her late husband Gordon Alexander, as mother to Donald Gordon YOUNG, Robert Andrew YOUNG and William Alexander YOUNG, as grandmother to Alicia, Duncan and Troy, and as mother-in-law to Louise GADBOIS and Mary YOUNG. She is survived as well by her beloved sister Ruth Clare LODGE and her husband Arthur and by her brother William Denman STEVENSON and his wife Mildred, along with her relatives sister-in-law Dorothy Jean ANTROBUS, nieces and nephews Kathryn, David and Steven LODGE, Cathy McCALLUM and Robert STEVENSON, and Drew ANTROBUS, together with their spouses and children. Kay was a wise and competent home-maker, and a warm and welcoming hostess. She was raised in relative comfort in the Niagara escarpment area by her mother Agnes Macdonald STEVENSON (CARPENTER,) who was a graduate of the Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph, and her father William Oliver STEVENSON, a surgeon. She survived meningitis and rheumatic fever as an adolescent but was left with a damaged heart. Kay and her future husband Gordon met as teenagers, and after an appropriate courtship, they married in September 1944. Kay moved with Gordon's career, which focused on polyester textiles, first with C.I.L. and later with Celanese Canada. As mother to three busy boys, she cared for the family homes in Toronto, Kingston, Hamilton and Montreal with diligence and creativity. After Gordon's retirement in 1978, Kay and Gord settled in Kingston and passed idyllic summers with family and many Friends at their beloved cottage on Bob's Lake, near Westport, Ontario. Kay's old-Ontario culinary mastery, including her signature sweet red pepper sauce, was enjoyed by dozens of visitors from across Canada and around the world. She enjoyed nature, games and reading, and followed the lives of her family and many Friends with much interest and affection. Kay endured two open heart surgeries, first in 1965, and again in 1981 to insert a mechanical heart valve. The valve, which was designed to operate for some ten years, was still functioning at the end of her long, rich and productive life. Relatives and Friends are invited to a memorial service for Kay, to be held in Kingston, Ontario, during the autumn of 2005. Details will be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Wildlife Federation would be gratefully appreciated.

LITT operated Farm Tax Services for 25 years
By Sarah FRALEY, Free Press Reporter
When the farmers who hired Clinton LITT to help them with their finances fell on hard times, he was understanding.
"He would take different types of payment," said Laurie GIBSON, his youngest daughter.
"Sometimes for payments he'd bring home a side of beef or a dog.
"He had a great, great, relationship with all of his clients," she said.
"He was extremely optimistic and positive."
LITT, 77, died July 6 after a short battle with lung cancer.
He was the owner and operator of Farm Tax Services for 25 years until he retired in 1992. LITT began the business while living in London. He moved to Moorefield between Palmerston and Mount Forest to be closer to his clients.
"It was a very personalized business... he was known for just sitting at the kitchen table and talking for hours," said Jacquie FRASER, LITT's oldest daughter who now runs the business with her husband Kim.
LITT provided farmers with advice on how to prepare for the future. He worked for about 100 clients and still managed to get to know each one.
"He cared about the individual," said Kim FRASER. "He really looked out for peoples' finances and he wanted to make sure that people invested money."
"As a bookkeeper he was the most diplomatic gentlemen. He was very professional about his work," said Maxine YOUNG, a client and long-time friend of LITT's. "He loved to stay for lunch. He loved homemade pie."
LITT came out to the YOUNG farm in Moorefield three times a year and at year's end to put together income tax returns, and the two families enjoyed travelling together on family trips.
As a young boy, LITT enjoyed horse races because his family farm was bought by the Hanover Raceway and he lived next door most of his childhood.
He grew up in Hanover and was the youngest of five children. At the age of 21, LITT contracted tuberculosis and decided to undergo an operation to collapse one of his lungs.
Breathing problems and asthma were constant worries for him after that, making it difficult for him to attend outdoor activities such as horse racing.
But LITT found other passions such as his business, his family and the Toronto Blue Jays.
"He was an avid, avid Blue Jays fan and never, ever gave up on them," GIBSON said.
"Anytime I was over there and there was a Blue Jays game on, he would listen to you with one ear and listen to the game with the other," YOUNG said.
She described him as good father who was proud of his daughters.
The family built their first home in London in 1963. When their two daughters moved out, LITT and his wife, Shirley, moved to Moorefield.
"They came from London to the country. Shirley adapted very well and she learned to be a country girl."
YOUNG remembers the couple as a perfect pair that worked together at home and at work.
"He had a very good wife at home working in the office. As a team they worked really well together," said YOUNG.
The couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this past January before Clinton was diagnosed with cancer.
"What a great day that was. It was a really pretty party. He looked great," YOUNG said.

RYALL, John David, C.A.
Born September 16, 1937 in Montreal. Died February 3, 2005, North York, after a four month illness. Retired Partner Grant Thornton LLP
Longstanding active and contributing member of the Kiwanis Clubs of Toronto and Montreal.
Only child of Edgar John (Jack) and Gertrude Irene (née LOVETT) who predeceased him by some years.
John was educated in Montreal and practiced there as a C.A. for two decades before moving to Toronto in 1983. He was noted for his technical expertise in assurance and a passion for working with companies in the mines and minerals sector. He loved mentoring junior members of the accounting profession and cultivating their skills. In retirement he found a new professional niche in chairing an audit committee for a public company and remained engrossed in this work throughout his illness.
He gave back to the community as a Kiwanian, as Treasurer of the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club and as Treasurer of his Condo Board where he is remembered for his gruffly delivered wit, Friendship and sense of humour.
Leaves to mourn, his partner in life, Andrea DEMCHUK and her son Severn MOZER who wish they'd had much more time with John. He was a quick study as step-father, knowing how to make life fun while providing much-appreciated guidance. For years to come, episodes of Star Trek and JAG will bring tears to our eyes, as will CNN, British Broadcasting Corporation world, takeout pizza and trips to Radio Shack, Canadian Tire and Costco. Nobody could talk things through like John. He brought meaning to life.
First cousin Marilyn YOUNG and her grown daughter (and John's much beloved Goddaughter) Lindsey YOUNG of Leaside.
Former wife Janice Morrison RIEHL of Houston, Texas and her husband Bernard. And too numerous to list here, all of John's wonderful Friends from his business and community work who took the time to call, or drop by the hospital or the local Keg. Andrea is especially grateful to all of you and to her Friends and family.
And John wanted all of the health professionals who provided care these past months to know how very highly he valued their work.
Memorial service will be held at Murray E. Newbigging Funeral Home, 733 Mt. Pleasant Rd. (south of Eglinton) at 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 12, 2005 Captain Geoff Ryan officiating.
If desired, donations to Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs, 101 Spruce Street, Toronto M5A 2J3, 416-925-2243 ext. 22.

YOUNG, George Paxton, 1889
Saturday, February 26, 2005 - Page S7
Philosopher and educator born at Berwick upon Tweed, England, on November 9, 1818. After studying at the University of Edinburgh University, he was named minister of Knox Church, Hamilton, Canada West, in 1850. In 1853, he was appointed professor of "Logic, Mental and Moral Philosophy" at Knox College in Toronto, 1853, but resigned to become an inspector of grammar schools for Ontario whose reports paved the way for a high-school system. In 1868, he went back to Knox and then switched to the University of Toronto, where he taught logic, metaphysics and ethics. At the time, his teachings struck a responsive chord in students struggling with new theories of evolutionary naturalism.

Noël will also be remembered by his many Friends, including his canoeing buddies, colleagues from George Brown College, fellow advocates for better childcare and social justice, and his community at Trinity St. Paul's United Church. Noel's life was all about children, from summers spent as a camp counsellor, through working in school-age childcare, to teaching Early Childhood Education at George Brown College. Noël loved stories, the Canadian wilderness and social history. He dealt creatively and courageously with the challenges of living with a brain tumour, and made new plans and new Friends until his last days. Noël spoke often of "the gifts of cancer," and of all he had learned from the lives and deaths (from cancer) of his father The Reverend George YOUNG, mother Beatrice, and sisters Gwen and Lorraine. Many thanks are due to his caregivers, especially the team at the Grace. Noël lived well, loved well, and laughed a lot. Our celebration of Noel's life is on Saturday, March 19 at 1 p.m., at Trinity St. Paul's United Church, 427 Bloor St. W. Children welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Campaign 2000, which aims to end child poverty in Canada (355 Church Street, Toronto, M5B 1Z8); to his daughter's education fund or to a cause of your choice.

ROE, David McGregor (1930-2005)
David McGregor ROE passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 9, 2005 at the age of 74 years at 51°6' N 114°1' W.
Dave was born on July 24, 1930 in Toronto to Jean Maude YOUNG and Charles Robert ROE. He was close to his grandparents McGregor and Alice YOUNG (WILLIAMS) and his cousin Peter. Dave, known as "Rosie", attended St. Andrew's College and has stayed close to his classmates over the years, still carrying on the tradition of mischief they had all mastered as young men. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in the early 1950's. Dave's fondest memories of this period were when he was with 414 Sabre Squadron stationed in Baden Soellingen, Germany. Dave moved to Saint John's in 1958 to work for Canadian Marconi and spent long periods on the Distant Early Warning line in Labrador. In Saint John's he met the love of his life, Geraldine Mary KELLY, and they were married in 1960. He lived the next forty years in Newfoundland raising two boys David and Ian along the way. Dave was with the Signal Hill Tattoo, as well as being employed with Petro-Canada before his retirement. Known for his quick wit, sharp intellect, and easy going attitude, Dave loved telling stories about his world adventures (which often included a drink or three!). For Dave, life was something to be enjoyed, he made stress seem like a four letter word.
David is survived by two sons, David of Calgary and Ian of Vancouver, British Columbia; and grandchildren, Niall, Jean, and Tavin and step-sister Dee Dee.
He was predeceased by his wife Geraldine who passed away in 1997. Dave also leaves behind many great Friends in Saint John's, Calgary, Bali and other places around the world.
Cremation, no service to be held immediately. At David's request, a Memorial Service and party will be held in his honour in St. John's at a later date.
Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, if Friends so desire, memorial tributes can be made directly to T.B.D. Tudball Memorial Fund, St. Andrew's College. In lieu of grief, smile and give someone a hug.

Robert BURNS, Graphic Designer: 1942-2005
Creative wizard whose firm Burns Cooper Hynes made the logos of corporate Canada instantly recognizable allowed cocaine to ruin a brilliant career, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Wednesday, June 1, 2005, Page S7
Robert BURNS was many things -- a graphic artist, a creative thinker, a father -- but most of all he was a cocaine addict. That fact obscured his talents and darkened his life for the last 25 years, from the collapse of the high-flying design firm Burns Cooper Hynes in the early 80s to the ruin of personal relationships.
As a designer he was the equivalent of a bandleader, said his former partner, copywriter Jim HYNES. "He was like Glenn Miller. He knew the sound he wanted to create and he was a genius at putting together the right ingredients to get that result." Other people did most of the work, of course. "He used to call me the donkey," said Mr. HYNES "because I did a little work every day, keeping the cart moving at all times while he would run, run, run and then crash because he would be running at a pace that nobody could sustain."
At his best, Mr. BURNS was a virtuoso of the big idea -- the central phrase or image that you could build a product or an advertising campaign around. "He had heart, wit and intelligence," said Eric (Ric) YOUNG a social and environmental communications consultant. "That is a rare combination and it was invested in all of his work, which was strategic and conceptual. He had real passion and ambition and he brought fantastic energy and an aspiration for greatness to every project."
"He could plug into another person and tune himself onto that wavelength so perfectly that it was mesmerizing," said Mr. HYNES. "That was his greatest talent when he was building a very successful organization, but it was also the talent that enabled him to survive on the street and carry on with a lifestyle that most people can only manage for a few years before they end up in the graveyard."
Robert BURNS grew up in a working-class neighbourhood on the outskirts of London. He was hard to handle as a teenager and once made the newspapers after he and a couple of Friends were arrested for urinating on somebody's front lawn. His parents, fearing he was headed for trouble, made him enlist in the Royal Air Force at age 15, to train as an airplane mechanic. Robert frequently butted heads with his superiors, although he did find success as a bugler and a fencer. Finally, he persuaded the Royal Air Force that he was a conscientious objector and won a discharge.
He put together a portfolio and went to art school in London on a grant for a couple of years. Like so many creative types in the early 1960s, he fancied himself a folksinger. As well as strumming a guitar, he ran an artist's booking agency called Folksounds in Lewisham.
He met Canadian Ellen ANDERSON (now an artist and social activist) in 1965 as she "stepped off the plane" from Toronto. One of her high-school Friends, who was working at the same agency, had asked him for a ride to the airport. "We never parted from that point," Ms. ANDERSON said. They married and made plans to move to Canada.
Mr. BURNS, then 22, needed a passport. At the registry office he made a casual joke about his parentage and learned that he'd been adopted as a baby. He felt betrayed, according to Ms. ANDERSON, who believes that confronting the truth about his birth was one of the demons that Mr. BURNS wrestled with for the rest of his life.
In Toronto, Mr. BURNS and Ms. ANDERSON shared a house with a number of artists. Mr. BURNS found work as a graphic artist for the CTV television network and then formed his own company called Robert Burns Designs. Ms. ANDERSON says her husband, who had grown up with rationing and deprivation, was so bewitched by the wealth of North America that he wrote a letter to a friend back in England saying, "the streets are filled with cars as big as houses."
Mr. BURNS left Ms. ANDERSON in 1969 when she was pregnant with their son Gabe. The breakup was cruel and acrimonious. By then, Mr. BURNS was working on a freelance basis with Heather COOPER, an illustrator and graphic designer whom he'd met through photographer Bert BELL. They began a professional and personal relationship that lasted 11 years, a creative partnership that brought them a stellar list of clients, a lavish life style and a daughter Sarah who is now 34.
Either separately, or together as the graphic design firm Burns Cooper, they seemed to be involved in everything that was fresh and innovative, from David Crombie's mayoralty campaign to Canadian Brass, Roots and CITY-TV. " Being intensely creative was what we were about," said Ms. COOPER. " Work was our passion and probably the original reason for us being together."
Jim HYNES, then a corporate communications executive, arrived in Toronto from Montreal in 1972 and hired them to develop a new graphic identity for his company. Over the next three years, the two men became close Friends. Finally, in 1975, Mr. BURNS persuaded Mr. HYNES to quit his job and join him and Ms COOPER in a partnership that became Burns Cooper Hynes.
"Within the next five years we became if not the biggest graphic design company in Canada certainly the best known and the most prestigious," said Mr. HYNES. They produced corporate identities, annual reports and sales materials for clients such as Northern Telecom, Alcan, Imperial Oil, Cadillac Fairview and Canadian Pacific airlines.
"He loved luxury. When he had money, it vanished instantly on the most expensive things he could find." says Mr. HYNES. In those days it was not uncommon to end a meeting with an advertising agency by doing a "mile-long line" of cocaine on the boardroom table. "Everybody snorted coke," said Mr. HYNES. "It was considered completely harmless fun." But Mr. BURNS moved on to injecting, quickly draining the company to feed his rapacious habit.
"He changed our lives in a big way, first for the better and then for the worse," said Mr. HYNES. "I needed to get out of the corporate world and I still remember that decade as the happiest of my working life. Heather is a very reclusive person and for her to sell herself as an illustrator was very difficult, but Robert made her into a superstar. The first requirement of one of Robert's big ideas was a great big poster by Heather COOPER."
After the collapse of Burns Cooper Hynes in the early 1980s -- Ms. COOPER said it took her years to wind up dealings with creditors and contractors -- Mr. BURNS started a couple of other design firms, but he never really recovered.
"I thought he might be able to control his addictions, said Ms. ANDERSON, "but he had so many demons and drugs were the way to keep them at bay." About a year ago he learned that he had at least two types of hepatitis and he had terminal liver damage.
Although he had been living on and off the street for years, lately he was living in a group home run by the Homes First Society and had connected with outreach and religious workers at St. James Cathedral in Toronto and a neighbourhood centre called 6 St. Joseph Street. Two weeks ago, he spent the day working on a renovation project, went home to have some soup with a friend and collapsed.
Robert BURNS was born in London, England on April 16, 1942. He died of hepatitis and heart failure on May 14 after nearly 30 years of drug abuse. He was 63. He is survived by his first wife Ellen ANDERSON and his son Gabe; and by his former partner Heather COOPER, his daughter Sarah Cooper BURNS and her family.

Neil YOUNG's father was an icon in own right
Sports journalist also a noted author
By James CHRISTIE, Tuesday, June 14, 2005, Page S1
With reports from William HOUSTON and Canadian Press
The labels that people attach to the name of Scott YOUNG inevitably mention prominently that he was the father of pop music icon Neil YOUNG.
But YOUNG, who died Sunday in Kingston, Ontario, at the age of 87, deserved the title of icon in his own right as a journalist, author, colleague and spinner of big-league dreams for kids who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s.
YOUNG's trilogy of hockey books for boys, Scrubs on Skates, Boy on Defence and Boy at the Leafs' Camp, were food for fantasy for the youth of a hockey-loving country. They were only a part of a body of work that included 40 books of fiction and autobiography drawn from a career in which YOUNG travelled the world covering everything from the Second World War to the assassination of John F. Kennedy and nearly every major sporting event in North America.
In his own field, he was just as big a star as the heroes he covered working for The Globe and Mail, the Winnipeg Free Press, The Canadian Press, the Toronto Telegram and Maclean's and Sports Illustrated magazines. He loved his craft. He was skilled in the telling of stories, and lessons were more important than the vanity of embellished prose. He made a reader comfortable, involved.
"He was someone who preferred to be at home," Margaret HOGAN, his wife of 25 years, said yesterday from Kingston in an interview with the Peterborough Examiner. "He went to bed early, he got up early. He wrote early in the morning. He was a writer, he was a kind, hospitable person who loved to walk in the country and follow the seasons."
YOUNG was born April 14, 1918, in Cypress River, Manitoba He lived with his mother and other relatives in several Prairie towns after his parents split up when he was 13. As an adult, YOUNG would follow a similar path.
He married three times, to Edna Blow RAGLAND, Astrid Carlson MEAD and HOGAN and had a total of seven children and step-children.
YOUNG began his journalism career officially at age 18 as a sportswriter at the Winnipeg Free Press in 1936. He also supported the family selling short stories published in Collier's, Argosy and the American magazines.
He moved to The Canadian Press in Toronto, where he would cover both news and sports, at the age of 23 after the paper refused to give him a raise.
YOUNG told Canadian Press in 1994 that Free Press managing editor George FERGUSON told him, "You will never be worth more than $25 a week to the Winnipeg Free Press."
YOUNG covered the Second World War for Canadian Press from London, then served in the Royal Canadian Navy 1944-45.
In 1957, YOUNG joined The Toronto Globe and Mail as a sports columnist.
He covered Grey Cups, World Series, Stanley Cups, the Olympics and appeared on Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts.
A talented and resourceful reporter, he was seconded to cover a Royal tour and write a general column, leaving an opening on the sports page that would be filled by Dick BEDDOES. He jumped to the Telegram in the 1960s, then made his way back to The Globe in the 1970s.
YOUNG said in his memoir A Writer's Life that his hockey books for boys "were based on hockey as I had known it in Winnipeg high schools and junior teams."
Hockey, as YOUNG knew it, was the brand espoused by Toronto Maple Leafs founder Conn SMYTHE and Stanley-Cup-winning coach George (Punch) IMLACH, for whom he would also author books.
He gave up newspapers in 1980, dismayed by what he saw as a twist in the journalistic profession, away from reporting facts and quoting real contacts to scandal hunting via "unnamed sources."
His novels and non-fiction work included The Flood, the two Arctic thrillers Murder in a Cold Climate and The Shaman's Knife, and 1984's Neil and Me, about his relationship with his famous rock 'n' roll son.
HOGAN said her husband hadn't written for several years.
Peterborough Mayor Sylvia SUTHERLAND said YOUNG's death left a void in the landscape of Canadian journalism.
"He was one of the outstanding journalists of his time," she said. "He had an incisive intelligence. He knew how to get a good story. I love Scott. I miss him a lot, everybody will. He's one of the great legends of Canadian journalism and it's a loss to those of us who love journalism."
SUTHERLAND said she first met YOUNG in the mid-1960s, when she worked at the Toronto Telegram. "We became close Friends in the '70s when we all moved to Peterborough," she said.
HOGAN said she and her husband moved to Kingston last October to be closer to her family. But they kept the family farm in Cavan.
"We still use and love the farm," HOGAN said.
"In the late '60s he was looking for property. He settled on this property in the Cavan hills."
The couple were there only two weeks ago, the last time SUTHERLAND saw her friend.
"Right until the end he was a very graceful and gracious man," she said. "He had been ill for a number of years, but he was still the same sweet Scott. He loved to talk about the old days in journalism and it was fun to do that with him."

YOUNG, Mary Cecilia (née VAN BERGEN)
(October 11, 1910-June 14, 2005)
Dearly beloved wife of the late Frederick E. YOUNG. Dear mother of Sylvia Baron R.N., of Toronto and Dr. Frank D. YOUNG, Ph.D. and his wife Donna of Calgary; cherished grandmother of Angela, Michael, Paul, Marie, Mark, Sarah and Susan. Loving and proud great-grandmother of Anthony, Emma, Serena, Rachel and triplets Isabella, Noah and Zachary. Mary was an extraordinary inventor and designer of hospital equipment, a unique diagonal subway system for Toronto, political, environmental and architectural reforms, a pioneer in "reduce, re-use, and recycle" during the war and the Depression, and the designer of the butter keeper used in refrigerators even today. She generously and humbly "gave away" many of her ideas in order to boost others in their pursuits and careers. Her desire to make positive social and political change one person at a time was always foremost in her mind, whether that person was a friend or statesman (often one and the same). Mary was a very determined lady whose brilliant mind, abiding faith, inspired sense of humour, generosity, and unflappable sense of style and glamour have set a standard for us all. She was very well loved and admired and will be greatly missed by all the many, many lives she touched. Mary passed away at Mount Sinai Hospital on the morning of June 14 of complications from pneumonia. She has been entrusted to Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home at 467 Sherbourne St. Her family would love to share her memory with Friends at Rosar-Morrison on Thursday, June 16 from 7-9 p.m. and Friday the 17th from 2-4 and 7-9. Mary's Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, June the 18th at 3: 30 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 78 Clifton Rd. Parking adjacent to the funeral home.

I Remember -- Scott YOUNG
By Gerry FRYER, Saturday, June 18, 2005. Page S9
Thornhill, Ontario -- Scott YOUNG's obituary appeared on June The passing of Scott YOUNG this week brought back for me memories of September, 1964, and the conversion of Toronto's CJBC into a French radio station. I came to Toronto at the time to work as an announcer on the newly converted station.
There was some hostility in the newspapers regarding the conversion, as CJBC was popular with the English-speaking audience. But we found an unexpected friend in the most unexpected place: Scott YOUNG, a columnist for The Globe and Mail who had written several columns supporting a French CJBC.
On October 1, 1964, our first day on air in French, we had wanted to interview Mr. YOUNG. When we phoned him for an appointment, we found out he did not speak French. But we agreed to meet anyway. We met at his Rosedale home and, for the next two hours, painstakingly, we put together a good minute and a half of Scott YOUNG in French.
Word by word, Mr. YOUNG repeated each word of a prepared French text several times until he had reached a perfect pronunciation for each one. Back at CJBC, it was my job to edit Mr. YOUNG's voice. It took me a good three hours of minute splicing of quarter-inch audiotape. But, at the end, we had Mr. YOUNG wishing the best for the new CJBC in a more than passable French.
This was my first interview with a member of our new Toronto audience. I could not have had a better introduction to this city than the one I got with this most civilized and broadminded Torontonian.
Vive Scott YOUNG!
Jacques GAUTHIER, Toronto
On learning of Scott YOUNG's passing, I was immediately taken back to the early 1960s in Winnipeg. Then, most schoolboys played hockey year-round, watched Hockey Night in Canada every Saturday and read every book that could be found about the greatest team sport in history and "the world's fastest game."
At the time, many of us still thought we had a legitimate shot at playing professional hockey, despite the nearly insurmountable odds against that prospect. Mr. YOUNG's scintillating trilogy Scrubs on Skates, Boy on Defence and Boy at the Leafs' Camp was the cornerstones of most of our rather limited personal libraries.
I ripped through the pages of Scrubs on Skates so many times that the book nearly disintegrated. Somehow, Santa knew to put another copy under the tree that year.
Mr. YOUNG's books were the first works of fiction that ever set my heart racing while broadening my horizons to consider some of life's possibilities. For many, it was the closest we ever got to the training camp of a professional hockey team, and we can all thank Scott YOUNG for that opportunity. His power with the pen could thrill and excite while magically transporting you to the world of your dreams.
Roy MacGREGOR notes that Canadians now have "no Scott YOUNG to connect the national game to the national culture" (This Country June 15). Fortunately for many of us, he already has and his legacy will live on for generations to come.
Jeffrey PECKITT, Oakville, Ontario
About 45 years ago, during my first (and only) year in Ryerson's journalism program, I decided -- in my desire to become Canada's greatest sportswriter -- that I should write about my school's teams for The Globe and Mail.
Shamelessly invoking the name of an uncle who knew him, I visited Jim VIPOND, the Sports editor, and suggested that The Globe needed to cover Ryerson sports -- and that I was just the man to do it. Without missing a beat, he sent me out of his office to write a brief autobiography to help him make a decision.
Choosing an empty chair in front of an old manual typewriter, I almost froze when I noticed that the man pounding away next to me was Scott YOUNG, an icon in sports journalism and one of my heroes. I recall no greeting or sign of acknowledgment from my neighbour (and I certainly would not have dreamed of interrupting him); but that brief near-encounter remains one of my fondest memories.
Despite shaking, clammy hands, a suddenly dry throat and a blank mind, I managed to bang out something for Mr. VIPOND. I got the non-paying "job" and, for a few months, wrote for the same newspaper as Scott YOUNG at the peak of his career.
Eventually, I met my wife, Gail. She bettered my story: She and a former boyfriend used to double-date with Scott YOUNG's son Neil. Together, we still feel a certain affinity with the YOUNGs.
Carl A. CHRISTIE, Winnipeg
In the late 1950s, my parents purchased the full Encyclopedia Britannica on my behalf. Being more sports mad at the time than now, I was delighted to find an article titled Hockey -- A Nation's Pastime in the 1960 yearbook. The article left an indelible impression on me, and I have read it many times since.
It was built around a 1-0 game in December, 1959, between the Maple Leafs and the Canadiens. The author, Scott YOUNG (at that time a Globe and Mail columnist), described the atmosphere inside and outside Maple Leaf Gardens beforehand, including the scalpers and the standing-room patrons, who at that time were about 15 per cent of the Gardens' ticket holders. Then came "the whole beauty of the game" - teamwork, body checks, high skills and reflexes, and the individuality of stars like Doug Harvey, the Pocket Rocket, Jean Beliveau ("moving with the effortless power of a big buck deer"), and the only goal scorer, Frank Mahovlich.
Mr. YOUNG's article soared by translating the Canadian passion for ice hockey into poetry. He wrote, "Throughout the game the noise of the crowd was a constant series of great Ohs," and, at game's end, "Here I had seen something to remember -- the Canadian equivalent of an Italian opera audience, rising as one to shout 'Bravo.' "
That article is a time capsule of my love for the game, and also of what the return of great hockey would mean for our country. Thank you, Scott YOUNG.

I Remember -- Scott YOUNG
By Louis CAUZ, Saturday, June 25, 2005, Page S9
Louis CAUZ, managing director of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame, writes about Scott YOUNG, whose obituary ran on June On a warm June morning in 1970, Scott YOUNG and I walked along "shed row" at Woodbine Race Track in Toronto, aware that the stories we had to write that day wouldn't be pleasant. Two Violins, the undefeated favourite for the Queen's Plate, had come up lame that morning, and his trainer, Lou CAVALARIS, hoped we wouldn't go to the owner until he had a chance to tell him the bad news. Naturally, we agreed. In 1984, Scott recalled that incident in writing the introduction of my book, The Plate: A Royal Tradition. At the launch of the book in the director's room at Greenwood, he brought along his pal, Punch IMLACH, and spoke glowingly. His knowledge of King's and Queen's Plate races from the 1940s and 1950s was a source of great inspiration. He also edited my book about the Blue Jays, Baseball's Back in Town. If there was one memory of Scott YOUNG that I cherish more than any other, it was one night at The Globe and Mail when he was working on his column on deadline. My desk was next to his. A stranger walked into the sports department, which wasn't unusual in those days, and began questioning him. Scott stopped writing and slowly and politely answered him, instead of brushing him off. He always had time for people.

By Marjorie BARTON, Tuesday, July 5, 2005, Page S9
Marjorie BARTON writes about Scott YOUNG, whose obituary appeared on June 14.
In the mid-1960s, I was a fan of Scott YOUNG and an avid reader of his daily column. Therefore, I was thrilled when my daughter, as editor of her high-school yearbook, was invited to introduce him as a speaker on career day. She had some aspirations toward writing and valued the advice he gave. Six years later, she was married, living in Newfoundland and writing for the local paper. Unfortunately, she and her husband were both killed in a traffic accident. Though I knew Mr. YOUNG would hardly remember his brief encounter with my daughter, I felt a compulsion to contact him. He responded immediately, and the outcome was a very moving column he wrote describing the young couple's hopes and dreams. We were strangers, but his kindness and compassion gave solace to our family at a very difficult time.

Star Trek's chief engineer, Lt.-Cmdr. Montgomery Scott, was irascible, excitable and prone to delivering dire warnings in a Scots burr. As portrayed by Canadian James DOOHAN, Scotty became a favourite of the cult television program's legions of fans.
Many assumed the actor shared traits with his character, but out of his red uniform, Mr. DOOHAN was a serious actor with a substantial list of credits. As a young man, he led soldiers as part of the D-Day invasion in an attack which he later described as "giving Hitler the finger."
Mr. DOOHAN's chief engineer character cursed dilithium crystals and coaxed power from overstressed warp-drive engines on the Starship Enterprise. The order to be beamed aboard was directed at Mr. DOOHAN; " Beam me up, Scotty" became a cultural catchphrase, as well as the punchline to innumerable jokes. Mr. DOOHAN became so associated with the command that he used it as the title of his autobiography.
Yet, the program's dedicated fans -- their numbers legion and their allegiance bordering on the fanatical -- insist no character ever uttered the phrase. "Beam me up, Scotty" is to Star Trek what "Play it again, Sam" is to Casablanca.
After the original series ended following a three-year run, Mr. DOOHAN was upset at being typecast as the irascible engineer with the unforgettable burr. After all, he had earlier performed Shakespeare under the direction of Mavor Moore and won notice for his performances in dramas telecast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. He eventually made peace with the character, whom he portrayed in subsequent feature films. He also became a frequent and well-received guest at Star Trek conventions.
A first-class mimic, Mr. DOOHAN tested eight accents when auditioning for the role. "Well, if you want an engineer," he told Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, "it had better be a Scotsman." Mr. DOOHAN settled on a dialect he described as an Aberdeen brogue.
Scotty's accent, it has been noted by one newspaper, fooled no one north of Berwick-upon-Tweed, let alone a Scotsman. Yet the near-comic urgency of his delivery compelled many fans into worshipful imitation. The actor named the character after his maternal grandfather, James MONTGOMERY, a sea captain.
In many ways, Mr. DOOHAN imbued the chief engineer with what could be described as Canadian qualities. His practical warnings ("In four hours, the ship blows up") and excitable protestations ("Ah canna change the laws of physics") always gave way to a resourceful fortitude in completing a task, however dangerous or improbable.
The actor may have drawn on his own experiences as a veteran of the Second World War. He was wounded during the D-Day invasion of Normandy in an incident he described as "giving Hitler the finger."
Those who found his accent unconvincing were not surprised to learn he traced his Scottish roots to an ancestor who lived three centuries ago. He was Irish by heritage and Canadian by birth. James Montgomery DOOHAN, conceived in Belfast, was born in Vancouver on March 3, 1920. His parents and three older siblings had just emigrated to Canada, arriving in Halifax on New Year's Day.
In his 1996 autobiography, Mr. DOOHAN describes his father as a dentist, pharmacist, veterinarian and drunkard. His memories were of a household made unhappy by his father's alcohol-fuelled rages. The family moved to Sarnia, Ontario, when the boy was 6. Two years later, while serving as an altar boy at a Catholic mass, Jimmy suddenly felt delirious and was rushed from church. He was diagnosed with diphtheria.
Around home, he was known to imitate the voices he heard on the radio or at the cinema. At 16, he played the title role in a school production of Robin Hood at Sarnia Collegiate Institute and Technical School.
Eager to leave home, he enlisted as a gunner in the Royal Canadian Artillery immediately after Canada declared war on Germany on September 10, 1939. After learning Morse code and earning a commission as an officer, Mr. DOOHAN spent two frustrating years in training in England. He served as a general's aide-de-camp during the planning for the Dieppe raid.
On June 6, 1944, Mr. DOOHAN commanded 120 men of D Company of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles. In the early morning of D-Day, he joined the landings on Juno Beach. While he saw a captain go insane and another man suffer a grievous stomach wound, Mr. DOOHAN managed to lead his men to the seaside village of Graye-sur-Mer without casualty.
Soon, however, they came under fire from a machine-gun lodged in a church tower. Mr. DOOHAN, a command post officer by rank, borrowed a rifle. His first shot missed, but each of the next two shots felled a German soldier and the nest went silent. He never learned whether he had killed or wounded the enemy.
Shortly before midnight, Mr. DOOHAN was walking to his command post when a "machine-gun opened up on us. It hit me and spun me around. Staggering, I fell down into the shell hole," he wrote in his autobiography. "Then I looked at my right hand and saw the blood covering it. I could see the holes in my middle finger."
He walked to a regimental aid post where it was discovered four bullets had also imbedded in his left leg. In his shock at the three shots that smashed his right hand, Mr. DOOHAN hadn't even noticed the other wounds.
He examined the rest of his uniform, discovering a bullet hole in his shirt. He reached his left hand to his right breast pocket. "I pulled out the sterling silver cigarette case that my brother Bill had given me when I was his best man. And there I discovered a dent in it.
"The bullet had come in at an angle, ricocheted off the cigarette case, and bounced away. Four inches from my heart."
The finger was amputated. Years later, Star Trek fans would detail scenes in which the absence of the digit is noticeable. For his part, Mr. DOOHAN was always self-conscious about the loss. He often subtly camouflaged his right hand.
After six years in uniform, he was left with few plans for the future at the end of war. He became an actor by accident. Annoyed by poor performances in a radio drama, Mr. DOOHAN went to radio station CFPL in London, Ontario, to record himself reading from Shakespeare and other works. He disliked what he heard, but an enthusiastic sound engineer convinced him he was a natural. By coincidence, a brochure for a Toronto drama school had arrived at the station not an hour earlier. The novice signed up, and soon won a scholarship to study at the Neighbourhood Playhouse School of the Theater in Manhattan.
Mr. DOOHAN was taught by Sanford Meisner, whose eponymous technique of self-investigation was heavily influenced by the great Russian director Constantine Stanislavsky. Others attending the school in those years included Lee Marvin and Leslie Nielsen, a fellow Canadian who became a close friend.
A versatile performer, Mr. DOOHAN did not want for work. From 1950 to 1958, he appeared in, by his count, 450 live television broadcasts and 4,000 radio shows, shuttling from New York to Toronto. He was called Canada's busiest actor. He starred in Flight into Danger, an hour-long television drama aired on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's General Motors Theatre in 1956. Mr. DOOHAN portrayed a traumatized fighter pilot who takes over the controls of a commercial airliner after both pilots are incapacitated by food poisoning. The script was the first written by Arthur Hailey, a British émigré who settled in Canada after the war and went on to write such blockbusters as Airport and Hotel.
A role as an agent on the television series Treasury Men in Action evaporated without explanation soon after director David Pressman was identified as a Communist. Only later did Mr. DOOHAN learn he had lost the gig to an actor who secretly accused him of being a Red.
In 1963, Mr. DOOHAN appeared as a defence attorney in his first feature film, The Wheeler Dealers, a romantic comedy starring James Garner and Lee Remick, directed by Edmonton-born Arthur Hiller. Meanwhile, his list of television credits reads like an anthology of cult hits. He appeared in episodes of Bewitched, Ben Casey, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
The three-year run of the original Star Trek series cemented the actor's image in the public mind as a blustery but dependable miracle worker in a red uniform. He was paid just $850 U.S. per episode in the inaugural season.
A cast so familiar now -- with William SHATNER, another Canadian, starring as Capt. James T. Kirk; Leonard Nimoy as the logical Mr. Spock, a pointy-eared Vulcan; and DeForest Kelley as the crusty Dr. Leonard H. (Bones) McCoy -- won only a modest audience at first. The series lasted just three seasons, two years short of the Enterprise's promised "five-year mission to explore strange new worlds."
The low-budget series allowed for strong characterizations, which in part explains Star Trek's success in syndication. The series became a phenomenon, sparking an industry of collectables and conventions. Fans memorized large chunks of dialogue. Among the engineer's most repeated quotes: "The best diplomat that I know is a fully loaded phaser bank."
Mr. DOOHAN often failed to mask his antipathy for the star's hammy acting. The kindest praise he offers for Mr. SHATNER in his autobiography is a grudging acknowledgment that one episode's performance was "pretty okay."
The Scotty character was not often the focus of plot twists, although in an episode titled The Changeling, Bones leans over the engineer's body to deliver the shocking line, "He's dead, Jim."
Happily, the engineer is revived before hour's end.
In The Trouble with Tribbles, perhaps the best-loved of all episodes, Scotty disobeys captain's orders and precipitates a bar brawl with Klingons. The episode concludes on a pun ad-libbed by Mr. DOOHAN, after he dispatches a growing horde of furry creatures to a Klingon ship. "I transported the whole kit 'n' caboodle into their engine room," he tells the captain, "where they'll be no tribble at all."
Cancellation left Mr. DOOHAN unemployed and, he feared, unemployable. He complained of being typecast to his dentist, who said, "Jimmy, you're going to be Scotty long after you're dead. If I were you, I'd go with the flow."
He did so, reprising his role as Scotty in seven films. In Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, the engineer attempts to give voice commands to a 20th-century computer, including speaking into a mouse. Audiences roared with laughter.
After surviving a massive heart attack in 1989, Mr. DOOHAN seemed ever more frail. He deferred questions about the rumoured deterioration of his health by quipping: "If I had Alzheimer's I think I'd remember."
What would be his final public appearance came last August at a five-day event in Los Angeles billed as "Beam me up, Scotty one last time." He posed in his wheelchair in front of his star along the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
James DOOHAN was born on March 3, 1920, in Vancouver. He died on Wednesday at home in Redmond, Washington., a lakeside suburb 30 kilometres east of Seattle. Alzheimer's disease was one of many afflictions he suffered, including diabetes, lung fibrosis and Parkinson's. He was 85. He leaves his wife, Wende BRAUNBERGER, and their three children, Eric, Thomas and five-year-old Sarah. He also leaves four adult children -- Larkin, Deirdre and twins Montgomery and Christopher -- from his 15-year marriage to Janet YOUNG, which ended in divorce in 1964. A marriage to Anita YAGEL in 1970 ended in divorce two years later. Space Services Inc., a Houston-based company, will send his ashes into space, as he requested.
Toronto Trekkies will gather tonight at the Auld Spot Pub, 347 Danforth Ave., where fans can sign a condolence book to be presented later to the family.
2005-0-7-23 DAWSON, Nora -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, July 23, 2005, Page M4
Wielding a chainsaw into her mid-80s and riding her bicycle around Toronto a few years after that, Nora Claire Elizabeth DAWSON was not one to sit still.
Relatives describe a woman who took hiking trips to the Alps, bought a computer at 85 so she could trade e-mail messages with a grand-nephew in Panama and insisted that her relatives have certain tools on hand, for when she came over.
"When she came to visit us, she'd get the pruning shears and work in the garden," said Dan Walker DAWSON, a nephew who lives in London, Ontario
Her niece, Georgie Dawson DOCKER, tells a similar story. "She would arrive here, aged 85 and up, with her chainsaw and loppers, and she'd be up on the ladder pruning whether you liked it or not," said Ms. DOCKER, who now lives in Dunnville, Ontario
She was physically vigorous and capable, her relatives say, but she was also a well-educated and intellectually active woman. She did The Globe and Mail's cryptic crossword every day until she was 90.
Ms. DAWSON graduated from the University of Western Ontario, in her hometown of London, at only 17 and went on to take a master's degree at Laval University. But when she submitted her work, they gave her a doctorate instead.
As a young woman she moved to Toronto to teach French. She lived in North Toronto and then North York as she moved through a succession of schools including Havergal College and East York Collegiate Institute. She was head of languages at King and Wexford Collegiate Institutes. She was also closely involved in the Women's Musical Club of Toronto, though she didn't play an instrument herself.
Ms. DAWSON did not marry. She died early last month at 92. She leaves two nephews, a niece, and six grand-nephews and grand-nieces.

Margaret ALLEMANG, Nurse And Scholar: 1914-2005
Pioneer in applying methodology to traditional care, she wrote the first paper on Canadian nursing history
By Sabitri GHOSH, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, July 25, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Decades after the entrance exam that secured her a spot in the University of Toronto's School of Nursing, Margaret ALLEMANG -- by then a much-honoured professor emeritus -- was still mulling over her response to the question of why she wanted to be a nurse. "I guess I just used the pat answer," she mused in a 1993 interview, "that 'I wanted to be of service to others."
An inveterate deep thinker, Dr. ALLEMANG could never settle for a pat answer if a more profound one could be unearthed. As her nephew, Globe and Mail writer John ALLEMANG, recalls, "She had a professorial way of dealing with issues: you always allow time for further thought and consideration, and you don't close off any avenues for possibility." Yet in spite of her second-guessing, what she said in 1937 proved inescapably true -- both of her career as a researcher, teacher and historian, and of herself in general.
One of a new breed of nurses who emerged from an academic program instead of from an in-hospital apprenticeship, Dr. ALLEMANG was a pioneer in applying research methodology to traditional nursing. "Essentially, nursing wasn't a research-oriented profession or academic pursuit," Mr. ALLEMANG says. "It was simply the business of training nurses to be nurses. So she was kind of on the edge of that transition, where they started doing clinical studies of nursing care."
Her 1956 master's thesis on "factors affecting the sleep of patients" was among the earliest dissertations in clinical nursing. It was unique, too, for its emphasis on the individual patient -- a marked contrast from other studies of the era. Throughout the 1960s, Dr. ALLEMANG continued to broaden the purview of contemporary clinical research, chronicling the experiences of hospitalized cardiac patients and leading an experimental research unit at Sunnybrook Hospital trying out more patient-centred systems of nursing.
"She was very concerned with the patient as a person -- a whole person," says her friend and teaching colleague, Judith YOUNG.
Dr. ALLEMANG's quest to meet the "patient's physical, emotional and spiritual needs" was one charted by personal experience. As a child, she suffered from osteomyelitis, a chronic bone infection that left her bed-ridden for most of her youth. Later, studying philosophy in university, she came to embrace the existentialist view of how a crisis like hers could be transformative. "There was the idea in my thinking," she said, "that this fits into the sick person, because illness is a crisis, that people can grow and learn through illness."
For her PhD, Dr. ALLEMANG initially wanted to construct a theory of nursing "based on the existentialist approach to man." But her PhD committee at the University of Washington nixed the idea. So instead, she turned to the development of nursing education in North America from 1873 to 1950, focusing on the leaders who ushered in its most important changes. The project took her nearly 20 years to complete, with Dr. ALLEMANG working on it in between teaching duties at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Nursing. She was, remarks her nephew, "a great procrastinator."
When Dr. ALLEMANG's paper finally did come out in 1976, it was the first ever published on Canadian nursing history. Moreover, points out Kathryn McPHERSON, dean of women's studies at York University, it also deposited a crucial piece of scholarship into the hands of social historians just as they were starting to take stock of women's history-making contributions. "It was consistent with a genre of women's history which was about looking at Canada's female leadership," Dr. McPHERSON says.
While pursuing her PhD, Dr. ALLEMANG became familiar with another group of history-making women through the Nursing Sisters Association of Canada. She herself served as a nursing sister in the air force during the Second World War. While she did not go overseas, she later discovered dozens of women who had been principal actors in the drama of war. From 1977 until the early 1990s, she systematically interviewed 30 of them in a monumental oral history project. "It's very different view of the war," Dr. YOUNG says. "Nurses were the only women who were close to the front lines. I think Margaret saw them all as heroines."
During the 1980s, a group interested in nursing history, including Dr. YOUNG and Dr. McPHERSON, began to coalesce around Dr. ALLEMANG in meetings hosted at her West Toronto home. In 1993, the group formalized as the Margaret M. Allemang Centre for the History of Nursing. Even without a building or staff, Dr. McPHERSON believes their advocacy helped prevent precious archival materials from being lost during the wave of cutbacks that swept health care in the mid-1990s. She also credits Dr. ALLEMANG for bringing nursing history into its own in Canada through her tireless support of academics like herself.
"She was a real encourager, a co-ordinator," Dr. McPHERSON says. "Nursing history is so much part of general social history, so much on the map."
Never married, Dr. ALLEMANG was particularly close to Mr. ALLEMANG, her twin brother's son. In her retirement, the two regularly went to the opera and restaurants together, and would indulge in substantive conversations about the arts, history, food and philosophy. Somehow, Mr. ALLEMANG marvels, she managed to be a critical thinker without ever being critical. "I never knew if she had a bad thought about anybody," he says. "I'm sure she did, but you had to work pretty hard to get a sense that she didn't approve of something."
Even when a boarder from Hong Kong took her prized red Mustang on a wild joyride that ended in it being totalled, Mr. ALLEMANG says his aunt barely budged. Nor did it discourage Dr. ALLEMANG from her practice of opening her home to strangers. The last in a long series of tenants was Gizaw CHUTA, a refugee from Ethiopia and a minister in training. Today, Reverend CHUTA says he initially worried that the elderly white Canadian would see his presence as an imposition. "What she told me, she has experience with all people, with all cultures, so she liked to talk with all people. For her, really, all the world's people are the same."
When Mr. CHUTA learned last November that his wife and children had finally received visas to come to Canada, Dr. ALLEMANG insisted on paying their airfares.
Margaret ALLEMANG was born in Toronto on July 19, 1914. She died in Toronto on April 14, 2005. She was 91.

Noel's life was all about children, from summers spent as a camp counsellor, through working in school-age childcare, to teaching Early Childhood Education at George Brown College. Noël loved stories, the Canadian wilderness and social history. He dealt creatively and courageously with the challenges of living with a brain tumour, and made new plans and new Friends until his last days. Noël spoke often of "the gifts of cancer," and of all he had learned from the lives and deaths (from cancer) of his father The Reverend George YOUNG, mother Beatrice, and sisters Gwen and Lorraine. Many thanks are due to his caregivers, especially the team at the Grace. Noël lived well, loved well, and laughed a lot. Our celebration of Noel's life is on Saturday, March 19 at 1 p.m., at Trinity St. Paul's United Church, 427 Bloor St. W. Children welcome.

Tell me, what is it you plan to doWith your one wild and precious life?" (Mary Oliver)

Noël YOUNG had vision for daycare
He wanted a seamless day for schoolchildren
'Incurable' optimist devoted life to youngsters
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
A playful, joyful giant of a man, Noël YOUNG dedicated his life to children, their care and their welfare -- even though it was all theoretical until the birth of his own daughter just six years ago.
Mieke was an amazing gift, he used to say, and this wasn't theory, nor just the words of the smitten father he was. Four years before she was born, he was diagnosed with a brain tumour and given a few months to live. Perhaps it was his sunny, optimistic nature, perhaps it was something else, but YOUNG married his partner, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation writer Ann JANSEN, after his diagnosis and New Year's Eve surgery, and lived another 10 years. He died March 8 at age 51.
"When he was first sick, we never thought (having children) was a possibility," JANSEN said. "But he stayed well and the desire to have children is a very strong one. "
And he was someone who had a very strong sense of possibility.
"Cancer wasn't the only thing Noël had that was incurable. His optimism was," said Geoff WILLIAMS, a friend from their high school days in Scarborough. "Until close to his death he rarely expressed frustration or spoke of being upset with having cancer."
What did concern him -- greatly -- was establishing a child-care program for school-aged children within a federally funded universal child-care system. His vision was a seamless school day for children, in which they could go to one place for school and daycare. He was a founding member of the School Age Care Association of Ontario and the author of a 1994 book Caring for Play: The School and Child Care Connection.
He was the sparkplug behind a conference in Toronto six years ago and the driving force behind the association newsletter "Exploring Environments".
"He was very involved in things for children, advocacy for children, not-for-profit children's care," said Martha FRIENDLY, who saw him the day after the federal budget was announced in February. He had been staying in the palliative care unit at Toronto Grace hospital since the beginning of the year and by then was having some trouble speaking, but he wanted to know if the budget included finally -- funding for child care.
FRIENDLY is chair of the University of Toronto Childcare Resource and Research Unit, but she was one of a group of parents starting up the Alternative Primary School in about 1982 when she hired YOUNG to help with its faltering daycare. "He was tall -- about 6-foot-4 -- with a big, bushy head of red hair and I thought he was just the cutest guy. I tend to make snap judgments. I thought 'Okay, here's the guy (we need).'"
YOUNG told the hiring committee he wasn't strong on administration and that became a running joke. He was a creative, compassionate, imaginative and inspirational child-care worker: he started an outdoor education program in which the daycare kids experienced overnight outdoor camping, he designed a school-aged child-care program that focused on what the kids were interested in, including Friday afternoon swim lessons, but he never could pull together a budget.
It was the same when he arrived in the early childhood education program at George Brown College in 1987, ready to shake things up at a school known for its focus on the infant and toddler stages. He envisioned school boards and child-care centres working together to provide the seamless day, and it now exists at the early childhood education program funded by the province and run by George Brown at Ryerson public school.
YOUNG also initiated an innovative Canadian social history project, collecting archival photographs and organizing them into stories of child care, health, women's work, poverty and racism he often shared with classes at the college.
"He was trying to engage students in a more meaningful way of learning about history, and for early childhood education students to understand why we have the health care we have," said Pam DOYLE, his friend and colleague at George Brown.
She worked on the project with YOUNG in 1998. "He once affectionately referred to me as 'his staff,'" she recalled. "It was a faux pas he didn't make again."
But it was also typical of YOUNG, who could talk his, mainly female, colleagues into helping out and usually into doing the majority of the detail work on the many projects, conferences and causes he believed in. He got away with it because of his infectious idealism, youthfulness and exuberance. Still his Peter Pan-like ability to have the women in his life look after all its practicalities had a female friend at George Brown threatening to make up T-shirts proclaiming "I'm not Wendy."
He grew up in a family of women. "When he was born, everybody was thrilled," said his sister Betty VEITCH. He was the youngest child and only boy, and his three sisters fought over who was going to take him to school on his first day.
His father was an Anglican Church minister, idealistic and often away administering to the needs of his parishioners, something that wasn't lost on his son. When YOUNG was about five, he disappeared one day. The family finally found him having milk and cookies at the home of the church organist who lived with her elderly sister. He told his frantic mother he was "doing visiting just like Dad does."
YOUNG began working with children at the former Bolton Camp for underprivileged children and at the Eastview drop-in centre in downtown Toronto while attending the University of Toronto. He graduated -- eventually. "This was typical of how he approached academia: he liked it in theory better than practice," said WILLIAMS.
YOUNG started up and lived in a number of communal houses in the city: "From the first house on Follis to the apartment above the shawarma shop on College, in the house that shook in high winds on Clinton, and during brief diversions to the foreign lands east of the Don Valley Parkway, Noël managed to bring groups of people together in various degrees of harmony," WILLIAMS noted.
YOUNG and JANSEN made their home in a co-op near University of Toronto and a Starbucks, where YOUNG used to take his plastic travel mug every morning for a fill-up. He got to know the staff there so well, one of them started babysitting Mieke and another signed up in George Brown's youth services program. "He was a natural mentor," his wife said.
When he moved into the palliative care unit, the Starbucks staff arranged delivery of coffee to him.
His surgery last fall wasn't successful, but it might have given him an extra month or so of life, which he put to use. His was a family devastated by cancer: both his twin sisters died of it (Gwen had breast cancer and Lorraine ovarian cancer). His father had died of pancreatic cancer and his mother died of leukemia. Only Betty VEITCH survived kidney cancer.
Trinity Hospice organized a care team for YOUNG that was soon overflowing with Friends.
Pam DOYLE was a team member. "He still had ideas to the end. He still wanted to get people to work on committees. He said the team was life-giving; we were in awe of him."
When he still could, he did paddling exercises in his bed because he was hoping he might be able to go on one more canoe trip to Killarney. With DOYLE, he worked out the details of the Noel Young Award, which will be awarded to a student in George Brown's early childhood education program who has shown a commitment to advocacy and action.
About 450 people attended his memorial celebration at Trinity St. Paul's Church last month. There were cards and condolences. One was from Martha FRIENDLY's daughter Abigail, now 25 and studying in London, England. She was one of the kids at that daycare in 1982 where YOUNG first worked. She used to pretend she wasn't feeling well at school so she could sit with YOUNG in the daycare. "I always thought you were a giant," she wrote.

SNELGROVE, Katheleen Mary (née MARTIN)
Peacefully passed away at Sandalwood Park Retirement Community, Brampton, in the presence of family, at the age of 84, on Monday, April 25, 2005. "Kay" is survived by her loving family, son David SNELGROVE, wife Susan, grand_son Andrew of Richmond Hill, and daughter Mary NORWOOD, fiancé Alex KOWALSKI of Midland, grandchildren Laura, Adrianne and Alexander NORWOOD, daughter June YOUNG and husband Colin of Brampton. Kay was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in 1921. Her parents Tim and Rose MARTIN introduced her to a number of notables in her youth such as Mackenzie King, K.C. Irving and Elliott Trudeau. These associations led to a lifelong interest in politics. Trained in dance and theatre, Kay was also a skilled athlete and marksman. In 1938, she enrolled in Emerson College in Boston and began a key phase of her life as she served as part of the Sir William Stephenson's Intrepid network. As a student, she secretly brought vital communications documents between Churchill and Roosevelt back and forth across the Canada/U.S. border. In 1941, after Pearl Harbor, Kay immediately left school in Boston to serve the balance of World War 2 as an intelligence officer at the Captor II naval base in New Brunswick. In 1942 she married a sailor, Donald Edward SNELGROVE. After the war, Kay and Donald moved to Regina to start their family. Divorced in 1970, Kay returned to the workforce. She spent 17 years at the Brampton Times newspaper. In retirement Kay kept up her sports and was still dancing to the end bringing a smile to the faces of those around her. A memorial service will be held in the Chapel and Reception Centre, Assumption Cemetery in Mississauga on Saturday, April 30, at 12: 30. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or Alzheimer Society would be appreciated by the family.

Her desire to make positive social and political change one person at a time was always foremost in her mind, whether that person was a friend or statesman (often one and the same).

Kay SNELGROVE, 84: Intrepid spy and courier
Part of legendary spy operation
Kept quiet about her wartime work throughout life
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Every family has its secrets. And had the 1976 bestseller A Man Called Intrepid, not been written, Kay SNELGROVE's family might never have learned of hers.
As a teenaged schoolgirl attending Emerson College in Boston and regularly going back home to Saint John, New Brunswick, to visit Friends and family in the early years of World War 2, she helped deliver dozens of covert messages from Britain's war offices that ultimately went to those of American president Franklin D. Roosevelt.
She was part of the largest intelligence operation in history run by Canadian Sir William STEPHENSON, secret envoy for British prime minister Winston Churchill and the man code-named Intrepid.
After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, catapulting the Americans into the war, she was pulled out of school and brought home. Like many women, she went to work for the war effort; unlike many women, she was a code runner, a young woman with war knowledge considered so vital, she was assigned an Royal Canadian Mounted Police undercover officer to accompany her to and from her work at the naval yards.
She had taken an oath of secrecy and she kept it until author William STEVENSON's book was published. It described what is generally believed to be a masterful campaign by Britain to draw the U.S. out of its isolationist policy into the war effort to defeat the Nazis. STEPHENSON ran it out of the British Security Co-ordination Office in Rockefeller Center. Its cable address was Intrepid. But SNELGROVE took no joy in telling her children about what she did in the war.
It was the late '70s and by then she was a single mom living in Brampton raising June, her youngest and the only child still at home. Her country club and cocktail-party lifestyle had ended in 1969 when her husband, Don, left her and she became one of the first women of her set to divorce and downsize to a lifestyle that came without the backyard pool.
She'd picked up the pieces and applied for her first job since she was married, as a receptionist at the Brampton Daily Times, a now defunct Thomson newspaper. SNELGROVE had stunned her boss when she had put down the name of Ken Thomson himself as a reference. She went on to head the paper's classified ad section until she retired in 1986.
Reading STEVENSON's bestseller was "bittersweet" for her, her daughter Mary NORWOOD said.
According to her son, David SNELGROVE, when the book came out she realized she could finally talk about what she did -- but the only person she wanted to talk to about it had died in 1972.
"She always said she regretted never talking to her father about it," he said.
Because she always believed -- but never knew for sure -- that it was her father who volunteered her for the secret agent job.
Thomas MARTIN was a successful consultant working for the federal government rescuing foundering companies in the Dirty Thirties.
Although a lifelong Tory, he was a close colleague of and often on call to Liberal prime minister Mackenzie KING, whom his only child took to calling "Uncle Mac."
Her mother, Rose, an opera singer in Britain, made sure her daughter had every lesson imaginable: jazz, piano, ballet, tap, even acrobatic dance. She grew up in increasingly comfortable and influential homes in the West, then Montreal, where she became Friends with a young man named Pierre Elliott Trudeau whom she always called Elliott, and on to Saint John, where the family lived two blocks from the home of K.S. Irving and where she pitched on the same baseball team as two of his sons.
Talented, athletic and a whiz with numbers like her father, Kay MARTIN graduated from high school at 15. She never understood why her father insisted she attend Emerson College in Boston, where she studied dance and theatre with a great-grand_son of Davy Crockett.
She was in her second year when she was taken to the basement of a museum in Saint John where a man swore her to secrecy, told it had been cleared with her father, and conscripted her to serve her country.
That's how a tiny (she was 5-foot-1 and 99 pounds) convent-educated college girl became a King's Courier, blithely carrying white envelopes across the border. She knew only what she had to do she never knew who else was involved or what purposes the documents she was delivering served.
From her home in Saint John, she'd call a particular cab to drive her to the train station. When it arrived she would say to the driver, "Do you have something for me?" He would reach back over the seat and hand her a sealed envelope she'd put in her school papers.
She never told her children how she knew which Boston cabbie to hail, but once in the cab she had merely to say, "Take me to my dorm," and the driver would ask if she had something for him. And so it went, for two years, until 1941, her senior year, when she got a call demanding she come home for American Thanksgiving.
In Saint John, she again went to the museum basement where she was given another white envelope but this time told what message it contained, and then given different instructions and a combination of numbers and letters to memorize. She never forgot the message: It stated a large flotilla of Japanese battleships was heading for either Pearl Harbor or San Francisco, estimated time of arrival was December 6 or 7.
And she was to deliver that message to the British consul.
On December 6 she was studying in her dorm when her frantic roommate burst in announcing the Japanese bombing. "Pearl Harbor or San Francisco?" MARTIN blurted. It was the first time she had let anything slip and she thought it had gone unnoticed. But a half-hour later, her roommate wanted to know how MARTIN knew where the bombing was. She thought fast and said, "There are only two American naval bases on the west coast," which satisfied her roommate.
Almost immediately, she got a phone call ordering her home. With four months to go before she completed her degree and being of an independent nature, she refused, but the next day discovered her bank account had been emptied and closed, and when she returned to her room, a train ticket had been left on her bed. She never did graduate but went to work ostensibly as a secretary back in Canada.
Again, she was told where she would be working: at the New Brunswick Captor II naval base. Her job description was as a civilian secretary, but it was a cover for her work as an intelligence officer decoding cipher machines for critical naval operations. Once, she was hauled back to the base to run some codes on a suspicious ship in the Bay of Fundy with an outdated code. She identified it as an American vessel that had crossed the international dateline, and saved it from being blown up.
Decades later, she went into therapy to help with her resurfacing nightmares about working triage -- boarding ships to document the human devastation of war -- but when the war ended, she re-entered civilian life with gusto. The '50s found her living a Leave It To Beaver kind of life with the executive husband and three kids.
"She became Mrs. Mom," said NORWOOD.
Her mother taught her how to serve hors d'oeuvres at their parties, but she also taught her how to do a mean cartwheel. When daughter June YOUNG wasn't going to be able to take a night school gym class because of low enrolment, Kay SNELGROVE signed on and took the course. "I got a 79 and she got 84," said YOUNG.
When YOUNG started dating, her mother mentioned that she had been taught how to kill a man with a hatpin. Once, she showed her son an old bullet and told him it had been given to her at the end of the war by a man who said, "This had your name on it, Katie. We got him."
David SNELGROVE did some research on the Internet and found the bullet is a type issued to many European World War 2 military officers. "It could have been a true story," he said. " It's a great story and I don't have any reason not to believe it."
His mother was parsimonious with her war stories, however, never mentioning names, and tight-lipped about identifying details, as she had been trained to be. She never saw her role in the war as heroic. "I would say Mom felt it was her duty," said NORWOOD. "She sure loved her country. She loved being a Canadian."
SNELGROVE died April 25 in Brampton. She was 84 and had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease. She used to say she should write her memoirs, but she never did, perhaps because she was true to her word and kept her secrets.

Boy's home drew noise complaints
East-end home where body was found drew noise complaints
By Debra BLACK, Staff Reporter With files from Dale Anne FREED
Neighbours of 12-year-old Jamie CHAVEZ, whose body was discovered in the basement by his brother, had lodged a number of complaints with the city's housing agency about noise, rowdiness and lack of adult supervision at his east-end home.
Complaints had been made to Cityhome, Toronto's non-profit housing agency, in May and June, said a complainant who asked not to be identified.
"I called many times," he said, adding three households complained.
They were told nothing could be done. "We were concerned about the noise, the carrying on, kids not going to school, the lack of respect for the standards of the neighbourhood, those standards simply being quiet.
"Nobody gets upset with kids playing, but basketball in the street at midnight is ridiculous. And a gang of 10 kids on the porch being loud. If my door is shut and my television is on and I can still hear them across the street, it's too loud."
And now, he said with a quaver in his voice, one of the street's children is dead. It's too awful to contemplate, he said. "It's one of our kids. One of our children on our street. Dead."
Jamie CHAVEZ was found dead early Friday morning in a bin or barrel in the basement of his family's Coady Ave. home. Cause of death has not yet been determined. An autopsy was inconclusive.
"We're still in the process of pursuing further testing," said coroner Dr. Trevor GILLMORE.
Neighbour Louise COLE said Jamie had been reported missing to police at about 1: 30 a.m. by his mother Karen CHAVEZ after she found him missing when she got home from work. CHAVEZ had first called COLE and asked if Jamie was there. COLE said he wasn't.
When police arrived the first time they searched the house and found no sign of the boy.
After they left, COLE told Jamie's brother, Abel, 18, to check the shed in the backyard. He went to the basement for a screwdriver to break the lock on the shed and found his brother's body, COLE said.
CHAVEZ then called the police again, she said.
Yesterday, the family home appeared virtually abandoned except for a couple of bicycles locked to the porch railing and a pumpkin propped on a white plastic chair.
Neighbours say CHAVEZ lived there with her eldest son Abel, Jamie, two sisters -- Vanessa, 16, and Veronica, 14 -- and two teenage cousins. An 18-year-old friend of Abel's had also been living there for six months. CHAVEZ had recently separated from her husband, Alex, and was working nights at a packaging and labelling factory, said COLE's husband, Ronald.
But not everyone on the street had complaints about the family or noise. Other neighbours described the family as "nice" and weren't concerned about the loud music or late-night gatherings on the front porch.
"The kids were not bad," said Helen CULLEN, a pensioner who lives down the street. Often she would see the children playing road hockey, she said.
"They're just like other kids... they were a bunch of teenagers. What do you expect? (Jamie) was polite. He was not a bad kid. He never sassed you or anything. The mother did a good job with them."
Elise PARENT, who also lives nearby, didn't know the family well, but said she wasn't bothered by the teens hanging out.
"You could see a family, a single mother and a lot of kids, not flowing in money," said PARENT. "It was a hangout for kids in the neighbourhood. They would hang out until 1 in the morning. They were good people. They never made any trouble."
Throughout the day, police officers came and went from the house, continuing their probe.
Flowers and cards of condolences were placed lovingly behind the police tape at the foot of the lawn.
One card read: "Sorry for your loss. But he will still live on in our hearts. From Matthew, Daniel and Sarah."
A mother and son brought red roses and a cross with the Lord's Prayer written on it.
They placed it on the lawn and then stopped to look at the other bouquets, cards and candles. The boy had attended school with Jamie -- they were in some classes together, his mother said.
Later, a former employer of Jamie's father, Alex, came by to pay his respects.
He placed a bouquet of flowers on the lawn and shook his head in dismay.
"I didn't know the kids or the family," said Cam YOUNG, adding Alex worked for him as a mechanic for a number of years. They haven't been in touch recently, but he felt moved to do something.
"Alex is a nice, nice man. Very soft-spoken.... I just read about it in the paper. It's a tragedy."

Marion was the wife of the late George "Bun" CHERRY of Islington, Ontario. Marion was the youngest of sixteen children of the Stringer family of Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park, Ontario. She is survived by her beloved sister Mabel COOKE of Mississauga, Ontario. Marion spent the last two years at "We Care Retirement Home" in Streetsville, Ontario. The family is eternally grateful to Ms. Joyce GOPEE, R.N. and proprietor of "We Care." Ms. GOPEE's loving and sensitive care as Marion's nurse and friend is rarely paralleled in today's retirement home community. The quality of Marion's life in the last two years was truly enhanced because of Joyce GOPEE and the "We Care Retirement Home" family. Marion was strong willed, hard working and an amazingly compassionate woman. She was caring and well respected by family and Friends. She will be fondly remembered as a longtime seasonal resident of Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park. She had been referred to by some as the "Monarch of Canoe Lake" having moved there in 1925 and spending the rest of her summers there till recently. Marion will be sadly missed by many family members and Friends who are too many to mention. She will be especially missed by her great-nephew Carl YOUNG whom she fondly referred to as her best friend. As per Marion's specific wishes, a private family memoriam will take place. "C'mon Monty"
