DIAMOND, Marc (May 2, 1944-November 17, 2005)
Teacher, theatre director, playright, novelist, opera librettist, Marc DIAMOND died suddenly at his home in Vancouver, aged 61. Born in Hornell, New York, he came to Canada with his family in 1954. His father, Dr. Ralph DIAMOND, his mother Mary (nee LEFF) and brother Michael, are now deceased. He received his doctorate in Drama from the University of Toronto in 1979, and came to British Columbia in 1980, where for 25 years he taught in the theatre area of the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University. He is survived by his beloved partner and colleague of 27 years, Penelope STELLA, with whom he taught in the School, and by his countless students and Friends for whom he was a constant support and inspiration. An open, generous and encouraging mentor, patient and demanding by turns, with a subversive sense of humour, Marc DIAMOND has, along with his partner, had a transformative effect on the development of theatre in Canada. The hundreds of students who have gone on to act, direct, write and develop new companies form his enduring legacy. Marc DIAMOND was enthusiastically committed to the idea of interdisciplinary and collaborative projects, and regularly formed substantial creative alliances with musicians, composers, dancers, artists and film-makers. His remarkable sensitivity to the nuances of disparate art forms became an endless, surprising pleasure for the creative artists with whom he worked. From librettos for contemporary opera and musical theatre, through experimental novels to classical Greek dramas re-cast as contemporary political theatre, he brought to life his heartfelt commitment to the progressive possibilities of these art forms. The inquisitive and judicious audiophile, the uncannily discerning listener these animated his enduring love of music, especially jazz. Wide-ranging visits to the galleries of New York, his favourite city, fed a remarkable aesthetic sensitivity. The range of interests and curiosities pursued throughout his life were returned to the arts - his driving pleasure. Once a competitive swimmer, over the last several years Marc DIAMOND became an accomplished sea-kayaker. On vacation at his favorite place on the big island of Hawaii he could be seen at dawn, setting out alone into the Pacific. Thus we will remember him. The magnitude of his loss will be hard to calculate the math has not yet been invented. There will be a public viewing this Friday, November 25, from 7 to 9 p.m., and a funeral service on Saturday, November 26, at 1 p.m., at the Mount Pleasant Universal Funeral Home, 306 E. 11th Avenue, in Vancouver. In lieu of flowers or other donations, a contribution to the Marc Diamond Fund may be made through Simon Fraser University. Mount Pleasant Universal Funeral Home (604) 876-2161

Elizabeth LEFORT, Artist (1914-2005)
'Canada's artist in wool' who learned at her mother's knee turned Acadian rug hooking into an art form
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, October 25, 2005, Page S9
Halifax -- As a young girl she watched her mother make hooked rugs in the barn of their Acadian home on Cape Breton Island, which were sold to supplement the family's income. Captivated by the craft, she soon worked alongside her mother and began to show an unusual talent. But instead of making only the floral patterns like the rest of the rug hookers in the community, she created more complicated works of landscapes and portraits. Eventually her work earned her the nickname of "Canada's artist in wool."
Over the years, Elizabeth LEFORT produced more than 300 tapestries that now hang in galleries around the world. In 1957, she travelled to the White House to present U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower with a portrait in wool. It was the first large portrait she had done. Years later, when asked what it was like to visit the presidential residence she replied: "It was just a house like any other one."
In 1959, a visit to Canada by the Queen inspired Ms. LEFORT to create another portrait. Measuring 68.5 centimetres by 84, the Queen's portrait featured 50 different shades of colour, for which she dyed all her own wool. When she presented the portrait to the Queen at Buckingham Palace in 1959, Ms. LEFORT told her that the portrait represented 11 days of work. The Queen replied: "Eleven days of work, but no doubt a lifetime of experience." By accounts, the portrait stills hangs in the palace.
Ms. LEFORT worked in the Cheticamp style of rug hooking which uses a hook to pull loops of dyed wool through a burlap sheet suspended in a frame. Experienced rug hookers can pull the wool through the burlap at great speeds, keeping the length of each loop approximately the same. During her heyday, Mrs. LEFORT, like other experienced rug hookers, clocked at 55 loops per minute, 3,300 in an hour and 26,400 in an eight-hour day.
A devout Catholic, Ms. LEFORT hooked many religious tapestries including The Last Supper, which measures 2.5 metres by one metre and features 154 colours. Her only hooked tapestry hanging in her Margaree Harbour home showed the infant Jesus. It was her favourite piece and was displayed prominently in her living room.
In 1959, Ms. LEFORT hooked a portrait of Pope John [[XXIII]], which was exhibited at the Vatican. Ten years later, she presented Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau with his portrait in Halifax at the start of the Canada Summer Games.
When asked which portrait she liked best of all the famous people she had depicted, she pointed to Ann Terry MacLellan, a popular Cape Breton radio and television personality. "She was hard to impress," said Reverend Daniel Doucet, who is writing Ms. LEFORT's biography.
Born on Cape Breton, Ms. LEFORT was the youngest in a family of 12 children. At 12, she left school to stay home to help her parents Placide and Evangeline manage the home. Although she had hooked from an early age, it was not until she was in her mid-20s when she realized her talent was a gift. "At that moment, God took charge of me and I knew I could do it," she recently told Father Doucet.
"She never doubted herself afterwards," he said.
That moment coincided with her decision to move away from simple floral designs in which she would use four or five different colours. In their place, she tried a complicated English country scene that required a great many colours, including dozens of shades of brown.
"She had a tremendous sense of who she was," Father Doucet said. "She was very matter-of-fact about everything. There was no fuss, no bother. She had a gift and that was it."
Aside from doing a bit of house-cleaning work outside the family home, she spent most of her time hooking and helping out at home until she met the man who would later become her husband. "She probably would have died there if her husband hadn't come along and swept her away," Father Doucet said.
Ms. LEFORT met Walter Kenneth HANSFORD in the early 1950s. Originally from Toronto, Mr. HANSFORD bought a piece of land in Margaree Harbour and became a pivotal influence in her life. He immediately recognized her talent and bought all the pieces she created. In 1951, Mr. HANSFORD built a craft-and-souvenir store in the community, which he called "PaulPix Shop" and hired Ms. LEFORT, who at the time spoke little English, to demonstrate her rug-hooking method. The store also became an outlet for selling her hooking and before long he had a gallery built where she could exhibit her work.
In 1955, Mr. HANSFORD asked Ms. LEFORT if she could produce a portrait with her hook and wool. Until that point she had done only flowers and scenery. Her first attempt was a portrait of Mr. Eisenhower. After personally presenting the portrait to the president, Ms. LEFORT received a letter from Mr. Eisenhower. "I am keenly interested in the unusual effects that you are able to create through the medium of hand hooking in wool yarn," the president wrote.
For years, Mr. HANSFORD and Ms. LEFORT operated the gallery in Margaree Harbour during the summer months and spent their winters in Phoenix, Arizona., where she continued to hook. On the side, her husband was a talented photographer in his own right. An artistic and cultured man, he enjoyed listening to opera and surrounding himself with fine crafts. He spoke little French and died in 1987.
"They were an unlikely pair," Father Doucet said.
While she eventually learned English, Ms. LEFORT felt most comfortable speaking French throughout her life. Having left school at 12, Ms. LEFORT didn't continue her education and spent most of her time hooking.
In 1983, the Elizabeth Lefort Gallery opened at Trois Pignons, a cultural centre in Cheticamp, after La Société Saint-Pierre bought 15 of her best pieces. There are now 21 pieces hanging in the gallery. One of the most impressive is a tapestry she did in 1967 when Canada celebrated its 100th anniversary of Confederation. The 5.5-square-metre piece represents important events in Canadian history, including each prime minister from 1867 to 1967. It required 416 different shades of colour, about two million loops with the hook and seven months of her time from start to finish.
"Her pieces are very well known," said Lisette Cormier, executive director of Les Trois Pignons. "It [rug hooking] is so much a part of our Acadian history. It's so important to have her work stay in the community."
In 1986, Ms. LEFORT was appointed a member of the Order of Canada for having adapted Acadian rug hooking into an art form and, in the process, having contributed to the preservation of Acadian culture and heritage.
"All the awards she won were not that important," said her friend Charles Roach. "To her, the Order of Canada was no big deal." Instead, she believed that everyone who volunteered in their community should receive the award.
In the last years of her life, Mrs. LEFORT lived in Margaree Harbour with her sister, whom she cared for until she died. This spring, Ms. LEFORT suffered a stroke but was still able to live in her small bungalow and continue to hook.
Elizabeth LEFORT was born on July 17, 1914, in Point Cross, Nova Scotia She died in nearby Cheticamp on October 10, 2005.
She was 101, and the last of her immediate family. Predeceased by her husband and by her many siblings, she is survived by one step-daughter, and by many nephews and nieces.

Elizabeth LEFORT
By Margaret CHESAL, Thursday, October 27, 2005, Page S7
Hamilton, Ontario -- Margaret CHESAL of Hamilton, Ontario, writes about Elizabeth LEFORT, whose obituary ran on Tuesday.
I was thrilled to read about my aunt Elizabeth. I am sad to say that I do not have a piece of her work -- only memories of her sitting in gramma's kitchen hooking away with a hook that my father had hewn out of a nail, it was that primitive. As far as I know, she continued to use that same hook throughout her many years of hooking. She was a very humble woman, and didn't consider herself an artist. In hindsight, she probably would have given me a souvenir, but, to my chagrin, I didn't ask. The story had an error in her age -- she was 91, not 101. Having been born in Cheticamp and having moved to Ontario many years ago, the memory of my gramma's kitchen will remain forever, as will my memories of Aunt Elizabeth.
