son charged in death of mother
By Joe FRIESEN, Friday, July 29, 2005, Page A12
A man has been charged with manslaughter after his mother died in what police describe as a shocking case of abuse and neglect.
Mary NOSEWORTHY, 78, was found dead two weeks ago by her 54-year-old son, Donald, at the home they shared in Scarborough. There were obvious signs of abuse on her body, Detective Joel KULMATYCKI said.
"There were bruises on her body as a result of assaults," he said yesterday. "She hadn't bathed in, I would hazard a guess, a number of weeks.... Her bedroom and the area where she lived in that house weren't fit for anyone to live in."
Det. KULMATYCKI said it was the accused who asked for police to be called in.
An autopsy showed that Ms. NOSEWORTHY died of congestive heart failure.
"The primary cause of death was heart failure, and the secondary cause of death, which contributed directly to the primary, was elder abuse and neglect," Det. KULMATYCKI said. "She wasn't properly cared for.
He added that Mr. NOSEWORTHY told police his mother suffered from dementia, although she hadn't seen a doctor.
"It's almost like child abuse where the baby is crying and the parent gets so frustrated that they strike out," he said.
Rod MacDONALD, who lives next door to the NOSEWORTHY home on Westcroft Drive, said he hadn't seen Ms. NOSEWORTHY for the two months before she died. Normally she liked to walk to the local store every day to buy groceries, he said, but his wife had noticed her condition deteriorating over the winter.
Mr. MacDONALD said it was difficult to talk to his elderly neighbour. She was almost completely deaf, he said, and would often repeat stories.
"You kind of didn't like to walk away from her, but then she'd come up and start repeating these stories, things from way back in the past," Mr. MacDONALD said.
"Her husband was an elevator installer and he used to go all over Canada, and she used to talk about being alone a lot of the time and bringing up Donald.
"She'd talk about bringing Donald along on trips to Newfoundland or British Columbia to see his father because he'd been away for four or five weeks installing elevators. And the next week she'd have the same story again."
Mr. MacDONALD said Mr. NOSEWORTHY took his mother to see her husband's grave in Pickering every Sunday, but otherwise wasn't around much.
He, too, worked in the elevator business, starting his day at 5: 30 a.m. and staying out late.
Unlike his father, however, Mr. NOSEWORTHY made no effort to cut the lawn or clear the driveway, the neighbour said. Even though he owned a snow blower, he allowed his mother to shovel the driveway all winter.
Mr. MacDONALD said he could tell that Ms. NOSEWORTHY was sometimes afraid of her son, and recalled an incident two years ago when she locked herself out of the house and walked next door for help.
"She was saying Donald's going to be mad," he said.

BROADFOOT, Richard Keith
On Friday, August 26, 2005 Rick left this life after a brief battle with cancer. Rick is survived by his wife of 36 years, Helen (née MURPHY,) daughter Kelly (Shawn) GORDON, son Ron, and granddaughter Alanna. He is also survived by his sister Lynne (John) McLURE and their children Michael (Kelly) and Kristen (Terry), all of Winnipeg. Rick will be greatly missed by his assistant and "team member" of 32 years, Shiran NOSEWORTHY, and by Helen's sisters, brother and many nieces and nephews.

He was raised in Gladstone, Manitoba, a community founded by his pioneer forefathers in 1871.

After articling and being called to the Bar, he began his law career with Inch, Easterbrook and Shaker (now Inch Hammond) in 1971 and continued to provide trusted, confidential advice to his many clients until his illness would no longer allow him to continue. Golf and curling were Rick's avocations, having taken them both up at age 10. Although and enthusiastic 11-handicapper, Rick was probably a better curler than a golfer, having won club championships at Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club and Glendale Golf and Country Club.

He was an active member of The Rotary Club of Hamilton and slated to be President in 2007. Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be at Dodsworth and Brown Funeral Home.

Keith WINTERHALDER, Scientist (1935-2005)
Laurentian University teacher was a meticulous researcher but the epitome of the eccentric absent-minded professor at home, writes Sandra MARTIN. Importantly, he was the brains behind the greening of Sudbury, Ontario,
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, November 29, 2005, Page S9
Sudbury was not a pretty sight when botanist Keith WINTERHALDER arrived to teach at Laurentian University in 1965. Logging, fire, smelter emissions from the International Nickel Company (Inco) and soil erosion had wiped out almost all of the vegetation in the area. The barren soil, lacking the normal mulch from leaves falling in the autumn, suffered from severe frost in the winter and overheated in the summer.
Inco had tried sowing grass seeds. They would germinate, but the roots would wither as soon as they encountered the contaminated soil surface. After years of experimentation, Prof. WINTERHALDER learned, in what came to be called the Winterhalder Method, that an application of ground limestone could detoxify soil -- not just in Sudbury but in many areas of the world where mining and other industrial applications have polluted the environment. He also discovered that if a sparse grass cover could be established on a rocky hillside that had been treated with limestone and fertilizer, seeds from the few existing poplars, willows and birches in the surrounding area would blow in, germinate and grow.
"He suggested a lot of different grasses and different soils and different amounts of lime and fertilizer we could use," said Tom PETERS, former head of the Agricultural Dept. at Inco. It was as though the land degraded by the smelter formed a huge open air laboratory. "We carried on talking as we did different things and he became quite involved after I retired [in 1984] in planting trees on the tailings," said Mr. PETERS.
Prof. WINTERHALDER served as chair of Sudbury's Vegetation Enhancement Technical Advisory Committee for more than 20 years, initially preparing an inventory and then producing a case study to show that the toxic conditions could be reversed. Beginning in 1978, the Sudbury region established ground cover on more than 3,000 hectares of barren land and cleaned up 1,000 hectares of dead standing debris. They also planted more than a million trees.
W.E. LAUTENBACK, now director of planning services for the city of greater Sudbury, was the staff person on Vegetation Enhancement Technical Advisory Committee. When the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro lauded the region for its environmental stewardship in 1992, Mr. LAUTENBACK compared the honour to winning an Olympic gold medal. Prof. WINTERHALDER was extremely important in the greening of Sudbury, Mr. LAUTENBACK said. "He was the guy who pointed the way [with his research] and he was also very committed to public service. It gave his knowledge back for the public good."
Prof. WINTERHALDER was also generous and patient with his students. "I learned more from him than any other professor," said biologist Peter NOSKO, who did a masters degree at Laurentian.
Although he was meticulous with his field notes and his research papers, he was the epitome of the eccentric absent-minded professor in his personal life. He also seemed to have a lucky angel sitting on his shoulder. "If he were late for a plane it would be delayed," said Karen GANDIER, a former math teacher and his partner for more than 25 years.
On an Asian field trip he was perched 30 metres above the ground in a Malaysian rain forest when he dropped his glasses off the platform into the tree canopy. The next morning he went down to the ground and found them. Another time, he couldn't shift his ancient car into forward gear, so he drove it backwards all the way home from the university. The only tricky part, according to Ms. GANDIER, was figuring out which side of the street to drive on after he turned a corner at the street lights.
A linguist who was proficient in a number of languages including Ojibwa and Russian, he was also an accomplished musician who sang choral music in a Sudbury choir and loved to play the bagpipes. Prof. NOSKO remembers working very late in a lab when he was a student and feeling sorry for himself until he heard the skirl of the bagpipes coming from the herbarium down the hall and realized that he wasn't alone. "It was comforting to know that Keith was in there working, too."
Keith WINTERHALDER was born in Burrington, Shropshire, near the border between Wales and England, the eldest in a family of four children. His father, Frederick Albert WINTERHALDER, was a sports fisherman and a policeman. Originally watchmakers from the Black Forest area near Switzerland, the WINTERHALDERs had emigrated to London four generations earlier. His mother, Ursula May (WILLIAMS,) was a descendant of a long line of Welsh singers and a housewife who, when Prof. WINTERHALDER was a child, kept a cow and chickens and churned her own butter.
He was six years older than Neil, his nearest sibling; 12 years older than his sister, Sandra, and 14 years older than his brother Robin, and he "grew up in beautiful countryside on a smallholding miles from the nearest village," with only a sheepdog as a companion, according to his sister.
After his family moved to Rhayader in mid-Wales, he attended local schools before going on to Llandrindod Wells grammar school. He was "a loved father figure" to his youngest siblings, because their father, who had joined the air ministry police during the war, "worked away" for most of their early lives.
"Rob and I were taken for frequent long walks in the old-fashioned pram through the beautiful Welsh countryside and Keith, even then, seemed to be able to tell us all about nature." He was head boy at his grammar school. "He was always ahead of his peer group at school and was really quite intellectual as a boy -- spending time in the local library reading when his classmates were doing the more usual boyish activities."
After Llandrindod Wells, he went to the University of Wales at Aberystwyth, graduating with first-class honours in botany in 1956 and winning a Commonwealth Scholarship to do graduate work at the University of New England in New South Wales, Australia.
For somebody so intellectually talented and passionate about his subject, Prof. WINTERHALDER lacked a conventional curriculum vitae. He studied and taught botany as a sessional lecturer at University of New England for six years (until 1962) before taking up a three-year posting as a research fellow in botany at the University of Liverpool back in England. In 1963, he accepted a job as a lecturer in botany at the newly incorporated Laurentian University and immediately on arriving he became curator of the university's newly formed herbarium.
He was promoted to assistant professor in 1969 and associate professor in 1980. After his retirement in 1999, he continued working at the University Herbarium as curator emeritus and founded his own company, Wintergreen Ecological Services.
A procrastinator who cared little for credentials, he only belatedly acquired a masters degree in science from University of New England in 1970 and he never completed the dissertation for his Ph. D. degree. The frequently told story is that all his data burned up in a fire in a lab while he was out in the bush doing field research.
Zoologist Vic CLULOW met him in 1968, three years after he arrived at Laurentian. "He could have got a Ph. D at any time, but he never did," said Prof. CLULOW, relating a story about Prof. WINTERHALDER being held in such high esteem by his academic colleagues that he was asked on at least one occasion to serve as an external examiner for a Ph. D thesis even though he didn't technically have the qualification himself. "He also helped a lot of undergraduates and postgraduate students with money, time and space without ever expecting anything back," said Prof. CLULOW.
"He was never boring, but often exasperating," said Ms. GANDIER. They met after Prof. WINTERHALDER rented a house in the early 1970s from a colleague who was away on sabbatical and found a note saying: "For plumbing or dogs, see Karen." They had mutual interests in skiing, dogs, music and the outdoors, but they always maintained separate residences.
"Neither of us could stand living with the other full time. Both of us were real loners," said Ms. GANDIER. Besides, she was a dog person and he was a cat lover. Prof. WINTERHALDER always kept a window open in his basement and stray cats and the occasional raccoon would come in to eat the food he left for them.
About six years ago he was diagnosed with scleroderma, a chronic connective-tissue disorder that is generally classified as an autoimmune rheumatic disease. It affected his hands and feet first, making the joints painful and inflexible, and then progressed to his lungs and compromised his breathing. He never complained, according to Ms. GANDIER. He continued to go on field trips and conferences, attending one this year in a wheel chair.
Keith WINTERHALDER was born in Shropshire, England, on April 14, 1935. He died in Sudbury, Ontario of complications from scleroderma on October 29. He was 70. He is survived by his partner, Karen GANDIER, and by three siblings.

Gisela VON RICHTHOFEN, Aristocrat, Farmer: 1909-2005
Born into German nobility, she grew up within a stone's throw of the Kaiser, experienced life under the Nazis and then emigrated to Canada where she became a three-time Ontario dressage champion
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail Thursday, June 2, 2005, Page S9
Baroness Gisela VON RICHTHOFEN was born into the German aristocracy, but spent more than half her life in Canada, much of it on a farm outside Toronto. The freedom of the rural life in Canada was in sharp contrast to the world into which she born.
She lived for all but 8½ years of the 20th century. Just her name, VON RICHTHOFEN, provides a hint of her life. Manfred VON RICHTHOFEN, known as the Red Baron, was the top fighter pilot of the First World War. But when the famous VON RICHTHOFEN was killed in April of 1918, Gisela was just 8 years old and knew as much about the Red Baron as any other German child. He was a cousin of her future husband.
She was born Countess Gisela VON EINSIEDEL, one notch up from a baroness on the nobility scale. She was the first great-grandchild of Prince Otto VON BISMARCK, the Iron Chancellor who forged the German Empire in the mid 19th century.
The wars of the 20th century shaped her life. Her father survived the First World War; other members of her family did not. One brother was killed in France in 1940. Another brother, a fighter pilot, was shot down three times, the last time over Stalingrad in 1942. He was taken prisoner by the Russians and did not return to Germany until 1951.
As the wife of a diplomat she was a witness to the intrigue of the Second World War. Her first husband was posted to Warsaw before the start of the war and then to Paris during the German occupation. One of her close Friends -- and godfather to her son Manfred -- was Adam VON TROTT, the diplomat executed for his part in the failed plot to kill Adolf Hitler in 1944.
Gisela grew up on an estate in Saxony near Berlin. One of her neighbours was the German empress. When she was about 8 years old, one of Gisela's Friends dared her to climb the wall to the estate next door. Her pluck impressed the empress and she was invited to tea.
At the start of the First World War she saw her father off with his cavalry regiment, though she was more interested in the horses. "I was 5 years old and I went with my mother to the barracks and saw him go off to war," she wrote years later. "The horses being loaded on the train was what fascinated me. I was too young to have a perspective of what the war meant."
She spent the war on an agricultural estate near Heidelberg. After the war, her father worked as an estate manager and then for an agricultural-equipment firm. During the 1920's, Germany was ravaged by a post-war economic collapse and her family lost much of their land. Instead, Gisela went to university and, at 22, was the youngest woman to graduate from the University of Berlin law school. She didn't practise long since the Nazis came to power in 1933 and they didn't approve of women in professions. In 1936, she married a diplomat, Oswalt VON NOSTITZ, and had the first of six children. After the fall of France in 1940, she moved with him to Paris but during that time the marriage collapsed. She soon wed Baron Wolfgang VON RICHTHOFEN, an officer in General GUDERIAN's tank regiment who, before the war, had owned an art gallery in Berlin.
By the time the final months of the Second World came around, Gisela and her three children were staying on the Bismarck estate of Varzin in Pomerania and feared the approach of the Soviet army. Her husband Wolfgang, with the help of her ex-husband, managed to get a car with Japanese diplomatic licence plates (there were almost no civilian cars on the road) and mounted a rescue mission. The baron slipped away from his post for several days (an act punishable by firing squad), and used formaldehyde to fuel the car, since gasoline was impossible to find.
"My stepfather was Absent Without Leave and he had to use the back roads to avoid Gestapo checkpoints," recalls Manfred VON NOSTITZ, who went on to a career in the Canadian diplomatic service as high commissioner to Malaysia and ambassador to Pakistan and Thailand. "In Berlin we experienced some of the heaviest bombing. My mother was always very cool under pressure. At one stage she moved us from one shelter just before it was destroyed by bombs."
Life in Germany after the war was harsh. The VON RICHTHOFEN family was homeless, being from what would soon be called East Germany. For a while, they lived in rooms in a small castle in Ramholz with a friend from Baron VON RICHTHOFEN's regiment. At school, the children were harassed.
"I remember my mother once saw a chicken roaming free, grabbed it, killed it and cooked it for us. For the most part, we survived on cabbage, which I still can't stand," said Mr. VON NOSTITZ.
The VON RICHTHOFENs decided to emigrate. "My parents didn't feel at home in western Germany. They said they saw former Nazis in positions of authority, people like lawyers and doctors, and didn't want us growing up with them," said Carmen VON RICHTHOFEN.
In 1951, the family bought an 80 hectare farm near Campbellville outside Toronto and arrived with little money. Mrs. VON RICHTHOFEN, as she was almost always called in Canada, set out to make her new life a success. Later, her husband concentrated on training race horses, but at first they ran a mixed farm with everything from dairy cattle to field crops and chickens. She took night courses at the Ontario Agricultural College in nearby Guelph. Along the way, Micaela, the last of her children, was born.
Her mother, Bismarck's grand-daughter, also lived in the house. Mrs. VON RICHTHOFEN cooked for 10 people and sewed clothes for her children and for herself. Yet, for all that, her years on the farm were among her happiest. For one thing, it meant a renewal of her love for horses. In the early days on the farm, she jogged trotters up and down Guelph Line, then a dirt road with little traffic and at age 50 she taught herself dressage.
From 1964 to 67, she won three Ontario dressage championships. She continued riding until she was 84. On her 75th birthday, her daughters Carmen and Micaela worked for hours posing her on a horse in her dressage outfit. The idea was to mirror a photograph taken of her ancestor Otto VON BISMARCK on his 75th birthday.
Mrs. VON RICHTHOFEN and her husband left their farm in 1985 and moved to Toronto.
Gisela Sybille Frieda Else Marguerite VON EINSIEDEL was born in Creba, Saxony, Germany, on July 25, 1909. She died in Toronto on April 4, 2005. She leaves her children Christine, Veronika and Manfred VON NOSTITZ and Carmen, Nikolaus and Micaela VON RICHTHOFEN. Her husband died in 2000.
