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...."

Ivan Clifford MORGAN
By Mary Morgan McKNIGHT, Wednesday, August 10, 2005, Page A14
Spiritual leader, theological educator, family man, friend. Born August 14, 1912, in Paris, Ontario Died February 22 in Dundas, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 92.
Ivan was born in a house on the Grand River. When he was a baby, he and his family were rescued during a flood by a dray (a flat wagon with sides on it pulled by horses). When Ivan was 6, his younger brother, Frank, developed breathing problems. The doctor recommended the family move out west where the air was dryer and cleaner. They sold everything, and took the Grand Trunk train to Saskatchewan. (Frank soon recovered.)
One of Ivan's greatest achievements during his year in the west was learning to "lasso" gophers when they stuck their heads out of their holes -- for which he was paid a penny for 10 gophers. The MORGANs moved back to Ontario, where Ivan discovered in high school that he had leadership ability. At Sir Adam Beck Collegiate in London, Ontario, he was president of the student body, editor of the school magazine, and a star basketball player.
At 19, he became president of his church youth group of 150 young people, and then later president of the citywide church youth group. After high school, Ivan couldn't afford to continue his education. He drove a grocery delivery truck, and then became a purchasing agent.
Feeling called to become a minister, he arrived at McMaster University in 1933 to begin his training, with $17 in his pocket. The academic fee, plus room-and-board, was $500. But jobs and gifts appeared, and paid for everything.
At McMaster, the men and women of the two university residences held a dinner, and the men picked out of a hat the name of the girl they would take to the dinner. Ivan picked the name of Ruth RAITHBY, and they were together ever after, including 62 years of marriage. Ruth was musical, and beautiful. She had a keen mind, and a sparkling sense of humour.
Ivan served three Baptist churches as minister -- in Hamilton, Peterborough and Windsor. He was viewed as a good shepherd, was an outstanding preacher, encouraged interchurch co-operation, and was active in community service. He had a magnificent speaking voice, and when he spoke, to many or a few, you could hear a pin drop.
In Hamilton, he worked with the Children's Aid Society hosting a weekly radio phone-in show about children's issues. On the morning after his first child, Franklin, was born, the radio announcer told the listening audience that Ivan was a new father, and would finally be able to give knowledgeable advice about children. Ivan took great delight in being a father and grandfather whether it meant walking the floor with a colicky baby, or tobogganing in the park.
In 1960, he joined the faculty of McMaster Divinity College as professor of preaching and pastoral care. And from 1966-78, he was principal of the college.
Upon retirement he took some time for travelling with Ruth, and he also returned to interim ministry in many Baptist and United Churches in southern Ontario.
The loves of his life, besides his family and Friends, have been his church, his alma mater, his rose garden, cooking, summer cottaging, crossword puzzles, mystery stories, the humour of P.G. Wodehouse, and the Toronto Blue Jays.
The book Stories of My Life: Ivan Clifford MORGAN (written with his daughter, Mary) was published earlier this year. Ivan was celebrated at an autographing party, complete with a photographer, balloons, flowers, and refreshments. After the party, overjoyed that so many family and Friends had gathered, he said that it was like being at his own funeral while he was still alive. Two weeks later, he died.
Mary Morgan McKNIGHT is Ivan's daughter.
