TSUBOUCHI, Kiyoshi Thomas
In the presence of his family at Sunnybrook Hospital on Saturday October 22 at the age of 83. Beloved husband of the late Fumiko (Frances) née TAKAHASHI who passed away in March, 1997. He was a loving father to his children David (Elaine), Dan (Diane) and Lynne. Survived by his sisters Pat IOI, Nobu SMART (Buddy,) and Sets ODA (Paul,) and his brothers Kenji (Kay) and Eiji (Dorothy.) He will be deeply missed by all of his relatives, Friends, golfing and bowling partners. Kiyoshi was born in Vancouver on November 20, 1921, and raised in Duncan on Vancouver Island. He was the eldest son of Hyakuzo and Ume TSUBOUCHI. Kiyoshi, along with his sister Pat, left high school before graduating to work to support the family upon his father's illness. At the outbreak of war, he was sent to the Prisoner of War camp at Angler in Northern Ontario, where despite the difficult conditions, he used his time to better himself and complete his high school diploma by correspondence. After the war, he and his family moved to Thunder Bay (Fort William) where the family established themselves among a hard working community. Kiyoshi worked for logging companies to provide for the family and after his family was established, Kiyoshi moved to Toronto in 1948. He married Fumiko in 1951 residing in downtown Toronto, before moving to Agincourt in 1955, where he lived until his passing. Kiyoshi owned a successful dry cleaning business (Apex Cleaners) for 20 years before retiring. Kiyoshi loved sports, especially his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Yankees, and of course Tiger Woods, and was well known for his skill in a broad range of sports, in particular golf and bowling. Kiyoshi was a man of great determination, was an excellent provider who, along with Fumiko, sacrificed all for his family. He loved his family dearly and was determined to provide his children with the opportunity to gain industry educations. All three children graduated from university and established successful careers. David as a lawyer, then a senior cabinet minister in the Mike Harris Progressive Conservative government, and now a corporate lawyer with Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP Dan as an oil company executive, and now in the investment dealer business with GMP Securities.

TAKASHIMA o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-10-27 published
Shizuye TAKASHIMA, Artist And Writer: (1928-2005)
Japanese Canadian who was interned during the Second World War published a moving and furious account of her experiences for children and then lost her spark, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Thursday, October 27, 2005, Page S7
Painter, writer and teacher Shizuye TAKASHIMA was the author of A Child in Prison Camp, the first book about the internment of Japanese Canadians during the Second World War. Called Shichan by family and Friends, Ms. TAKASHIMA was the youngest of six children of Senji and Teru TAKASHIMA, a first-generation (Issei) gardener and a housekeeper.
She was born three months prematurely, weighing less than three pounds, and suffering from a congenital dislocation of both hips. As a small child she spent a year in traction in hospital as doctors tried unsuccessfully to correct her birth defect, which meant she was a year late enrolling in elementary school. She walked with a pronounced limp for the rest of her life.
After Japan bombed Pearl Harbour on December 7, 1941, the TAKASHIMA family was caught up in reprisals against Japanese Canadians. Before the war, there were more than 22,000 Japanese Canadians in British Columbia, most of them either naturalized or native-born Canadians. Their homes, farms and fishing boats were confiscated and sold for paltry sums, single young men were sent to labour camps, and families were relocated to eight internment camps in the interior of B.C.
Her four older brothers were sent to work on road gangs in Ontario, while Ms. TAKASHIMA, her father, mother and older sister were removed to an internment camp outside the village of New Denver, in the Kootenay Mountains near the Alberta-B.C. border. They lived under surveillance in a hastily built one-bedroom wooden house without electricity or running water, and were forced to share their accommodation with another family. They had to walk more than a mile to get drinking water and there was no school beyond Grade 8.
In 1944, William Lyon Mackenzie King's Liberal government passed a law saying Japanese Canadians who returned to British Columbia after the end of the war were liable to be deported. Ms. TAKASHIMA joined her older sister Mary in Hamilton in September of 1945 and was reunited with the rest of her family in Toronto a year later. She studied commercial art at Central Technical School and then went to the Ontario College of Art (now the Ontario College of Art and Design), graduating in fine arts in 1953.
She spent most of the next two decades travelling and studying art in Europe, Mexico (at the Fine Arts Institute in San Miguel Allende), New York (at the Pratt Graphic Art Centre), India, Asia and Europe. Toronto remained her home base, where she showed paintings, influenced by her travels, at the Jerrold Morris Gallery in Toronto. Writing in The Globe, art critic Kay KRITZWISER praised the paintings from her 1964 show as "mummified figures blindly searching in non-colour space."
A friend from those days says Ms. TAKASHIMA had a studio on the top floor of a mansion on Jarvis Street in Toronto. "She was a tiny little thing, with a pronounced limp and the biggest mouth I had ever heard. She could swear and she was sharp-tongued," said a friend who asked not to be named. "I remember her snapping at a visitor, 'If I knew why I painted bound figures, I'd be a writer.' "
May Cutler, founding publisher of Tundra Books, met Ms. TAKASHIMA at the Fine Arts Institute in San Miguel Allende, probably in 1968. Ms. TAKASHIMA was painting and weaving and "I was immediately interested in her background," said Ms. Cutler, with the result that Ms. TAKASHIMA wrote and illustrated a book for children about life in the internment camps.
Reading the ensuing manuscript, her "heart sank," Ms. Cutler said from her Montreal home. "It was so awful... just a kind of indignation letter that somebody might write to a newspaper... with none of the living information. But every so often she had these little sections that looked like poetry and suddenly it came alive."
In one of these scenes, Shichan and her older sister (called Yuki in the book) walk by an Royal Canadian Mounted Police office "half hidden among the dark pines" and Yuki warns they are being watched. Shichan looks at the closed door and says: "Their power seems to come through the very walls. We walk quietly past."
"Do the whole book like this," commanded Ms. Cutler. The result is an evocative and poignant account of daily life in an internment camp, with all its deprivations, rivalries and small joys, accompanied by Ms. TAKASHIMA's impressionistic watercolours (which are now in the Osborne Collection of the Toronto Public Library).
The book had a huge impact. It went into several reprints, was excerpted in newspapers and magazines, won a gold medal from the Canadian Children's Library, and was published in several countries, including Japan, where it was also turned into a musical.
A Child in Prison Camp marked a transition for Ms. TAKASHIMA, from painter to writer and illustrator, but there were other more fundamental changes going on that had a profound impact on her life and her art.
During her travels, she had embraced Agni Yoga, sometimes called the teaching of "Living Ethics," a philosophy founded by the Russian painter Nicholas Roerich and his wife, Helena Roerich in the 1920s. In the five years she spent in New York at the Pratt Institute, she became devoted to an Agni Yoga guru named Ralph Harris Houston. She dedicated A Child in Prison Camp to him.
Lorne Berkowitz met Ms. TAKASHIMA in New York in 1969. They were both followers of Mr. Houston and they went to classes and meditated together. She believed that all the great religions were different paths toward a greater consciousness of God and the boundaries and distinctions between them were mainly cultural, he explained.
Her art, as Ms. KRITZWISER wrote in The Globe in 1971, altered "largely due to her change in philosophy," to pastel paintings based on interpretations of the planets, the cosmic system, and peaceful cohabitation. "Our basic problems occur because we isolate our religions," Ms. TAKASHIMA told Ms. KRITZWISER. "As long as we think in 'I' terms, we'll never change."
Ms. Cutler also noticed the transformation. "Her early art was fascinating, and then she became interested in eastern religions and her art became very happy, lovely, pastel flowers." Noting the contrast from the marvellous "spooky" and powerful works done in the days when Ms. TAKASHIMA was bitter at what had happened to her family, and her later art, Ms. Cutler said, "I was glad that she found happiness even though her early art was the most powerful." Another observer said: "When she lost her anger, she lost her edge as a painter."
In 1976, Ms. TAKASHIMA began teaching watercolour classes in the drawing and painting department of the Ontario College of Art, a position she held until she reached retirement age. In the 1980s she did the illustrations for a book called Kenji and the Cricket written by the late Adele Wiseman.
She also became a supporter, although not a very vocal one, in the movement to seek redress from the Canadian government for the shame and economic loss the Japanese community suffered during the war. She attended a press conference in Toronto in June of 1984 at which David Dingwall, then multiculturalism minister in Pierre Trudeau's last Liberal government, announced that the federal government couldn't apologize for the internment of Japanese Canadians because the action was "legitimately taken by elected representatives."
As reported in The Globe and Mail, she told him that his statements did not "ring the right bell" for the community. "The government is made up of human beings and they made an error. Why can they not admit it?"
The Tory government of Brian Mulroney had no difficulty apologizing for the actions of Mackenzie King's cabinet four decades earlier. He signed a $12-million compensation package in 1988.
Ms. TAKASHIMA retired from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 1993 and moved back to Vancouver, mainly to be nearer a brother and sister who had also relocated to the West Coast and to avoid the harsh Ontario winters. By then, Ms. TAKASHIMA was very lame and suffered from chronic bronchitis in the cold weather. She wanted a respite from the climate and the slippery sidewalks. Just before she left she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She put off treatment until she had relocated.
Although she reconnected with her siblings and some old Friends in Vancouver, she missed those she had left behind. Writer Joy Kogawa, author of Obasan, the seminal novel about the Japanese-Canadian experience, was visiting Vancouver this summer and went to see her. "She was living in a basement apartment and all of her work was around her, but she was very weak and very lonely. 'Never move for the weather -- you can't leave your Friends,' she told me."
A few weeks ago, Ms. Kogawa heard that Ms. TAKASHIMA was in hospital and went to visit. "She was very peaceful. She wasn't in any pain and she knew what was happening to her, but she seemed okay with it." Ms. Kogawa wrote "with love from all of your Friends in Toronto," on a board in her room. "And the next day I heard she had died."
Shizuye (Shichan) TAKASHIMA was born in Vancouver on June 12, 1928. She died of breast cancer in the palliative-care unit at Vancouver General Hospital on September 21, 2005. She was 77. She is survived by an older sister and brother and by many nieces and nephews.
A memorial service is to be held on Friday evening at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, 6 Garamond Court, Don Mills, Ontario

HODDER, John Henry
Quietly, in Kitchener, Ontario, at the age of 85, on Monday November 28, 2005. John is survived by his wife and companion of 62 years Mary Fraser HODDER, sons Richard and Steven, daughters-in-law Margo TAKEDA and Valerie REED and grandchildren Matthew, Tanis and Jordyn HODDER. John came into the world with one name and left with another. Adopted soon after birth in 1920 by C. Victor HODDER, O.B.E. and Kathleen Telford HODDER, John, or Jack to many Friends, was raised in Toronto and distinguished himself as a fine athlete at Ridley and Upper Canada Colleges and North Toronto Collegiate. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1940 and earned his wings in 1941. After coastal defence duties during the war, surviving several crashes in peacetime and duty as a test pilot, John left the Royal Canadian Air Force to enter private business in 1956. A lifelong stamp collector, he retired in the late 1980's to work on his collection and to pursue his interests in needlepoint and painting. Special thanks are extended to Dr. Mary JACKSON, Dr. Eric HENTSCHEL and the nursing staff in the Chest Unit at Saint Mary's Hospital. His cremains will be interred in the family plot, Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto.
