Sheila Beryce WYNNE- JONES
By Tim WYNNE- JONES, Wednesday, April 13, 2005, Page A20
Mother, wife, homemaker. Born July 27, 1916, in Bromborough, Cheshire, England. Died February 27, in Perth, Ontario, of pneumonia, aged 88.
In his book Surprised by Joy, C.S. Lewis talks about his mother: a Scot, who had, as he puts it, "a talent for happiness in a high degree -- went straight for it as experienced travellers go for the best seat in a train."
He might well have been talking about Sheila B. who had a capacity for "cheerful affection" and needed it. There were many long and difficult journeys in her lifetime. Finding a good seat was a useful gift.
So much was left behind for her when we came to Canada in 1952. Everything she loved. Everything, that is, except for "Wynne" and us five kids. A sixth would come along in Kitimat, British Columbia, where Dad was to be an engineer building the docks for the Alcan smelter.
She had grown up in the town of Bromborough -- a town founded in 912 by King Alfred's daughter, Aethelfred. And suddenly, here she was (my mother, not Aethelfred) in a pioneer town, without streets, without shops other than the Hudson's Bay Co. outlet, living in a prefab house shipped by barge from Vancouver. If that weren't enough, she had to make the move without my father. He had gone ahead to start work. It was always that way.
And yet, when you look at the pictures of life in Kitimat, she is always smiling. True, in some of the pictures she looks a bit drunk but she's smiling, all the same. Smiling is what Sheila did best.
And homemaking. There were lots of homes, 20 or so. There was a stretch of time in Vancouver, after my father suffered an accident, when all eight of us lived in a basement. Mum hung up sheets for walls. It was like an endless washing day. A sorry architecture. A field hospital redolent of boiled celery.
Sheila didn't complain. Oh, I'm sure she did, but it is not how one remembers her. One remembers her smile. They called her the Queen Mum at Lanark Lodge, the nursing home in Perth where she spent her last five years. One remembers the wit that did not desert her even when dementia took so much else.
Mum had a single room but there were always visitors. Her fairies, she called them. Sometimes they intimidated her. I remember trying to calm her down when she was beset by these phantoms.
"Mum, it's okay," I said. "They're only imaginary." To which she responded. "Oh, I know they're imaginary, but do they?"
A few months ago, I found her chatting away to one of her fairies. When she saw me, she got very excited. "Guess what they bought me!" she said.
"What?"
"A rowboat!" she crowed.
"That's great. What are you going to do with it?"
She looked at me with surprise -- like maybe I was losing it and said, "Row up the river, of course."
I'd like to think that it was Dad with her that day. She was going to need some help if she were going to row anywhere. And she wanted nothing more than to be with him again after 24 years without him. Maybe, in her failing mind, his absence was just a longer variation of how it had often been; him going on ahead to get things set up.
This is the image I want to hold on to: Mum and Dad rowing together, as in the folk song, The Water is Wide. Not upstream, but down. Down from Lanark Lodge past Tay Terraces, where Mum lived for several happy years, a Wind in the Willows kind of place, Ratty's bijou riverfront residence. I imagine them rowing on down the Tay River to the Rideau to the St. Lawrence and the sea and, finally, home.
Writer Tim WYNNE- JONES is Sheila's son.
