LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Gladys Caroline
By Keith LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and Rob LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Page A20
Wife, grandmother, certified grapho-analyst. Born on November 28, 1915, in Penzance, Saskatchewan. Died on December 23 in Toronto, of Alzheimer's disease, aged 90.
Like a Norse hero, Gladys overcame adversity throughout her life with will, wit and courage. Her determination to survive difficult times and to share the warmth of her kitchen and weave it all into a compelling story became hallmarks of her life.
The early years were not easy for Gladys, the surviving child of Norwegian immigrants Arne and Borghilde (BERTHA) EIKRE. Widowed early, Bertha moved in 1923 from Saskatchewan to Toronto, where she took jobs in several households. Bertha's diamond ring went in and out of hock to balance the razor-thin cash flows.
When the founder of Regal Stationery visited Toronto's Eastern Commerce school to recruit a secretary, 16-year-old Gladys was eager to be his first employee; a full-time job in 1932 was more valuable than waiting for graduation. Within months, she assumed all the administrative duties and soon supervised other employees. Today, she would have been on the fast track to senior management but times were different then.
In 1934, Gladys accepted a blind date with "the most handsome man I had ever seen." William James LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was a farm boy from Rodney, Ontario, recently let go from Ontario Hydro because scarce Depression-era jobs were reserved for married men with dependants. Two years later, she married Bill and they moved to the family farm, a challenging transition for a Toronto girl. But she earned acceptance and respect from Bill's mother. The couple later settled in Saint Thomas, Ontario, when Bill found employment with the post office (and later became postmaster).
Throughout the Second World War, their Regent Street home was never locked, so that young pilots and aircrew training at nearby airfields could come and go as they needed. Many returned in the '50s and '60s to thank Aunt Gladys and Father William.
Although their first child, Carol, died as an infant, Gladys found strength, and raised sons Keith and Robert. She also found time to lead the girls' club at the church and coach baseball. On special occasions, Gladys would pen several lines of doggerel tailored to a person, gift or date.
Through home study, both Gladys and Bill became grapho-analysts, able to diagnose character and personality traits from handwriting. Gladys gave presentations to community groups and at international conferences. Her skills served local employers selecting staff, lawyers working with clients, and police investigating crimes. She also analyzed notes from girlfriends, teachers and supervisors to provide her sons with clandestine insight into the characters of these people.
After Bill retired, they rediscovered square dancing, and travelled to jamborees across Canada. They were good neighbours to everyone, proud of their sons' academic, career and family achievements, and adored their four grandchildren -- but they never met their two great-grandchildren.
Bill's first heart attack in 1978 was followed by several more, draining his strength and confidence. Gladys was always there to care for her love with never a shortage of conversation. After Dad died in 1991, we discovered that Mom's dementia had been masked by daily routine. Moving her out of our family home was very emotional, and soon led to retirement homes in Toronto.
After 14 years apart, Mom and Dad were back together for Christmas and their 70th wedding anniversary. Undoubtedly, they had lots to talk about.
Keith and Rob are Gladys's sons.

Free Press veteran had an eye for detail, facts
Bob (Ace) SCHROEDER is hailed as one of the best journalists the newspaper has seen.
By Chip MARTIN, Free Press Reporter, Wed., February 15, 2006
Ace was dealt a bad hand.
His death at age 61 late Monday came too soon for his family, Friends and colleagues who remember Bob (Ace) SCHROEDER as one of the best reporters and editors The London Free Press has seen.
SCHROEDER, a veteran of 39 years at the paper, succumbed to cancer after a brief but valiant fight.
His Friends in the newsroom, where he had risen to the rank of senior copy editor, mourned the loss of the stickler for detail and fact who fell ill two months ago.
"I'm going to miss him terribly," said Bill ELUCHOK, who edited copy alongside SCHROEDER until Eluchok retired a few months ago.
"He was a superb reporter and an even better editor," said ELUCHOK, who first met SCHROEDER 40 years ago.
A native of Exeter, SCHROEDER won a Free Press scholarship at the University of Western Ontario to further his studies. He became a full-time reporter in May 1966 and was a general assignment reporter, Sarnia Bureau reporter and police and court reporter before becoming an assistant city editor, sports copy editor and ultimately a senior copy editor.
Last year, senior editors at The Free Press named SCHROEDER the paper's winner of the QuickWire Award for Excellence in Editing.
"He was one of the best editors we had in terms of knowledge of grammar and facts," said ELUCHOK, who acknowledged SCHROEDER would also draw attention to factual or copy errors missed by colleagues. "He would find errors in copy I had edited and point them out," he said.
More than a few rookie reporters sloppy with facts or spelling and grammar would feel the lash of SCHROEDER's tongue. But he challenged them to do better and they usually responded.
Free Press Editor-in-Chief Paul BERTON said SCHROEDER gave immeasurable credibility to the newspaper.
"I don't know how he got his nickname, but I always thought it was because he was the best at what he did. It gave me a certain comfort when he was editing my stories, and it gave me even more comfort that he was part of the team when I became editor-in-chief."
John JARDINE, a former London city engineer, became a friend of SCHROEDER when they met at Western in 1963.
"His great love other than his family was golf," JARDINE said. SCHROEDER played 150 rounds of golf a year, mostly at Sunningdale Golf and Country Club, where he was a member.
His evening shift allowed him to hone his game to the point where he had a handicap of 10.
Before he and SCHROEDER switched to golf 30 years ago, JARDINE said he learned how competitive his friend was on the tennis court.
"He hated to lose."
In golf, it was SCHROEDER who was always lining up tee times and partners.
"He was a very honest guy," JARDINE remembered.
"He wouldn't play with anybody he thought was cheating."
SCHROEDER was proud of his work for The Free Press and JARDINE said it was clear his friend was "very ethical in his work."
JARDINE was a neighbour of SCHROEDER in Westmount and confessed he had trouble keeping track of London's system of rotating garbage pickup days JARDINE himself introduced. So JARDINE never bothered to consult his city-issued calendar -- he just watched the curb in front of SCHROEDER's house to know the collection day.
He knew his friend Ace wouldn't make a mistake.
SCHROEDER leaves his wife, Beth, and three daughters, Wendy, 33, of Parry Sound; Erin, 30, of Melbourne, Australia, who was married Saturday; and Leslie, 29, of London, England.
A memorial service is set for February 22 at Westview Funeral Chapel at 11 a.m.

BEATTIE, Jeann
By Joan HOTSON and Gail BENJAFIELD, Page A18
Writer, intellectual, educator, inspiration, mentor, friend. Born May 21, 1922, in St. Catharines, Ontario Died September 17, 2005, in St. Catharines, from complications of surgery, aged Jeann BEATTIE projected such an aura of strength that we thought she would live forever. She was a stylish woman with great flair and dignified bearing. We would have never condescended to regard her as "old."
The only child of Frances and Frederick BEATTIE (a St. Catharines councillor and local businessman), the precocious Jeann, at 11 years old, was answering telephones in Liberal headquarters on election day.
In 1944, after four years on the St. Catharines Standard newspaper, she studied journalism at Columbia University in New York and political science at the New School of Social Research after which she joined the New York office of the British Broadcasting Corporation.
In 1950, Jeann won the prestigious Ryerson All Canada Fiction Award for her first novel, Blaze of Noon. She often said she wrote it because her father went about saying she would. She credited her father with shaping her fundamental ethics; she absorbed his staunch liberalism and sense of social justice.
She remained a single woman and had a long career including her work at Maclean's magazine; articles and essays in major Canadian magazines and newspapers; three books; and producing a daily television show on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television. She counted as Friends a number of famous literati such as Pierre BERTON.
In later years she conducted writing workshops at St. Catharines Centennial library, co-opting and inspiring many loyal followers in her two decades of dedication to the craft.
She was an intriguing mixture of sophistication and innocence. Astute and well informed, she retained a naïve sense of wonder and continued to be captivated by new ideas. "Fascinating! Fascinating!" she'd say with relish. In recent years she instituted the stimulating Plato workshop series, a venue, in her words, "…for deepening our understanding of what is going on in our marvellous, frightening, confusing and exciting world."
Prominent among her unassailable core values was a strong sense of justice tempered by compassion, the kind that is forged from life experience, intelligent contemplation of self and the fair and rigorous examination of all sides of an issue. She was once coshed on the head by an intruder, a disadvantaged youth for whom she ultimately became an advocate in the justice system. Her book And The Tiger Leaps is an account of that experience.
A woman of unwavering conviction, she was a singularly persuasive advocate promoting tolerance and social justice, particularly for women. Always open to an opposing cogent argument, she could generously admit she was wrong.
Her friend Robert Fulford's words capture her self-effacing humour: "I remembered her as a spirited and enthusiastic professional with a fine sense of humour, directed at the world around her and above all at herself."
Her Friends watched helplessly as she endured a painful decline. The enormous outrage we felt on her behalf was left unexpressed in the face of her tremendous dignity and fortitude, as she was the antithesis of victimhood. Independent and proud, she bore her vicissitudes with a strong will in a manner expressed by one of her characters: "…without self-pity's confusing whimpers and distortions."
Many Friends attended her memorial service and spoke of how profoundly inspired they had been by Jeann. Her example will be long remembered.
Joan HOTSON and Gail BENJAFIELD are Friends and admirers of Jeann BEATTIE.

Pat PATTERSON, Broadcaster And Writer (1921-2005)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation pioneer hosted Trans-Canada Matinee, launched Polka Dot Door and wrote umpteen documentaries, plays and musicals but always turned down accolades
By Sabitri GHOSH, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Kingston -- Even in the form of a disembodied voice, Pat PATTERSON turned heads. Her firm yet supple contralto, one Canadian Broadcasting Corporation listener wrote, was "the most beautiful speaking voice" she had ever heard. Furthermore, said the fan letter, Ms. PATTERSON's show Trans-Canada Matinee "has helped me raise my children, kept me informed on world affairs, and acquainted me with the little but interesting people in the world -- and always with a chuckle." Added the Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, writer: "Your audience has always felt that Matinee was you, Pat."
For Ms. PATTERSON, there was no higher compliment. As striking in person as her radio voice insinuated, the prolific broadcaster, author and composer wanted her work to speak for her; she was merely the transmitter. "She was very retiring and very unassuming," said her partner, Sheila GILBERT. " Her attitude was, 'I don't want anything. No fuss, no muss.' "
In later years, she recoiled from public attention, even failing to show up at the 1986 Gemini Awards to pick up the John Drainie Award for lifetime achievement in broadcasting. Orphaned amid the festivities, the plaque was eventually retrieved from a garbage bin (so the story goes) and delivered in private.
The lifetime it celebrated was rarely discussed by Ms. PATTERSON. All she would reveal of her early years was her birthplace, Victoria, and the fact she earned a licentiate in voice and violin. A precocious only child, she co-wrote her high school's anthem with next-door neighbour Lucy BERTON, a sister of writer-historian Pierre BERTON. At 21, she joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and drove ambulances in Britain for the Red Cross. Returning to Canada in 1944, she moved to Toronto, where she hoped to have a career in advertising.
An agency man referred her to a friend, who referred her to another friend who worked at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. There, she landed jobs in the record library and continuity department.
"It was strictly the understudy in the wings department," Ms. PATTERSON told Peter GZOWSKI on a Morningside interview in 1986. "An announcer by the name of Frank Herbert was doing an afternoon concert hour, and I planned that program -- I planned the music and so on. One day, he was ill, and no one could be found to take his place. And the boss said, would I like to try it? So I did. And that was it: I was hooked."
In 1948, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation gave Ms. PATTERSON her own nationwide show, Pat's Music Room, half an hour of her diverse musical selections. She also lent her voice, programming skills and writing talents to a host of other network enterprises, prompting one columnist to dub her a "Jill of all trades."
When the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation joined the television revolution in 1952, the poised and telegenic Ms. PATTERSON led the charge. She often served as a pitchwoman for live-to-air commercials; writer June CALLWOOD remembered seeing her in one for electric stoves, "the kind that she just stands there and says she just loves her stove."
As Ms. PATTERSON's reputation grew, Ms. CALLWOOD's husband, Trent FRAYNE, was sent to interview her for Chatelaine. "You two would be great Friends," he told his wife. When the women met through a mutual friend, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Dorothy (Dodi) ROBB, they did indeed get along famously.
"We had the same sense of humour and the same ethics about behaviour she was a little more Victorian than I was, but we were both very proper women," Ms. CALLWOOD said.
When the still-single Ms. PATTERSON became pregnant and decided to raise her child herself, she turned to Ms. Callwood for support. "That was very unusual, to keep a baby in those days," Ms. Callwood said. "What people did was hide out and give the baby up for adoption, but she was not going to do that. At the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which was more broad-minded than most places, it was still a bit of a shocker."
Through resourceful time management and the help of close Friends, Ms. PATTERSON managed to rear her son, David, while working on three radio and two television shows at the same time. It was a remarkable feat that she divulged to no one but the most trusted of intimates.
She found sanctuary, as well as creative satisfaction, in her profession. "You sit in that booth and you are quite private," said fellow Canadian Broadcasting Corporation employee Liz FAWKES, who befriended the older woman and later babysat her son.
In the pinnacle of her Canadian Broadcasting Corporation career, Ms. PATTERSON was chosen to host Trans-Canada Matinee in 1961. Aimed at a daytime audience of women -- even as that audience's perceptions of itself and its role were shifting -- the public-affairs program offered interviews with the likes of W.H. Auden, George Balanchine, and Laurence Olivier.
"If and when women achieve that mythical status they keep fussing about, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Matinee should deserve some of the credit," wrote Toronto Telegram columnist DuBarry CAMPEAU in 1968. "It is lively and literate and any woman or man listening to it will be both entertained and informed."
Though upset by the abrupt cancellation of Matinee in 1971, Ms. PATTERSON smoothly segued into children's entertainment, arguably the love of her professional life. In the 1950s and '60s, she had collaborated with Ms. ROBB on a children's musical fantasy, an after-school television program, and three children's musicals. Now, the partners set to work on a new children's program, The Polka Dot Door. Besides composing the buoyant theme song -- still hummed on schoolyards and playgrounds across Canada -- Ms. PATTERSON also co-wrote the first 60 shows. "She had a sense of play, she had a sense of fun," said Ms. CALLWOOD, citing these as the cues for Ms. PATTERSON's approach to writing for children.
In a 1973 interview, Ms. PATTERSON also spoke of her strong sense of responsibility. "I think we're so conditioned, so tuned into the fact we're writing for children, we have to take care." She wanted her plays and programs to act as "good influences," she said, "if not in a moral sense, at least in a getting-along sense."
Ms. PATTERSON's words and music were behind many of the most durable children's shows of the 1970s and '80s, including numerous Sharon, Lois and Bram specials and Fred Penner's Place. She also developed and hosted short-run Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio series, and wrote plays and documentaries for radio and television. Her proudest achievement -- a docudrama on the life of landscape painter and war artist David Milne, A Path of His Own, which she also narrated -- won seven Canadian Film and Television Awards in 1980.
A scrupulous craftswoman, she was a critic of her own work, too. In a 1990 letter, she asked the editors of The Encyclopedia of Music in Canada to drop all references to her musical Henry Green and the Mighty Machine, "as it had a very brief life, while the three musicals previously mentioned have continued to get productions after more than 20 years."
But real life allowed no such revisions. In the late 1980s, Ms. PATTERSON had a permanent falling-out with Ms. ROBB, which affected her personally as well as professionally. Even more devastating was her son's death in 1994 from cancer. "That was a disaster," said Ms. FAWKES. " You don't want your children to go before you."
Pat PATTERSON was born in Victoria on December 4, 1921, and died in Toronto on December 19, 2005, of cancer. She was 84. She leaves her partner, Sheila GILBERT.

'You'd believe everything he said'
The veteran Canadian Broadcasting Corporation broadcaster was known as a non-stop talker and an equally good listener, writes Guy DICKSON/DIXON
By Guy DICKSON/DIXON, Page R3
Lister SINCLAIR felt that all the talk about being a Renaissance man and a Canadian media icon, even after more than 50 years as one of the Canada's most prominent broadcasters, was something he really didn't want.
In an interview recorded last year, the writer and broadcaster, who spent five decades at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, said with an audible smile that any association with the Renaissance was code for being hopelessly emblematic of something long since past.
And all that icon talk? Well, that made him sound like an authority on things. "I don't wish to be an authority, because I know I'm not," he said.
No doubt many will view SINCLAIR's death yesterday morning at the age of 85 as the passing of a golden era for radio and television, a time when both were more conversational and, many will argue (including SINCLAIR himself, some say,) more substantive. It was a time when SINCLAIR the playwright, actor, writer, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation host, trained mathematician and all around polymath could simply sit in front of a television camera and talk about Einstein's theory of relativity and it would be a great broadcast.
But as it turns out, SINCLAIR didn't pine for that era.
"If you said to him, 'When was your golden age?' He'd say, 'This one right now.' To him, now was the golden age. He did not look backwards," said Sara WOLCH, a producer at Radio One's Ideas, who worked with SINCLAIR for 25 years.
Ideas had become SINCLAIR's signature show. The program has been airing Thank You, Mr. SINCLAIR, which continues tonight. (The tribute series originally ran last year, but has modified for this rebroadcast with SINCLAIR's death.) Wolch said it features interviews with SINCLAIR and excerpts from his long career: from acting in Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio plays during the Second World War to Ideas, and even his radio show on disco.
"One of the saddest things about him dying is that he always wanted to know, 'What next?' He had so many questions unanswered about the nature of the universe. He was interested in everything," Wolch said.
By the time she started working with him, SINCLAIR was already 60 and a broadcast veteran. After meeting at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and talking about various projects, they decided to rent a lecture hall and form a studio group in the early 1980s, a monthly weekend seminar for 30 people, ranging from a journalist and economist to a massage therapist to a singer of Schubert's songs, to discuss military history, the Romantics, the ideas of Charles Darwin, mathematics, physics, you name it.
"Lister only charged $30 per person per weekend," WOLCH added. "When you think now of all these salons that are starting up, where people pay a lot of money to chat for a weekend, we were doing this a long time ago for almost nothing."
Then there were similar, pan-topic discussions with more prominent people, such as Pierre BERTON, who met as students at the University of British Columbia. BERTON has in the past described SINCLAIR as a non-stop talker, but others note that SINCLAIR was an equally good listener.
Yet Elsa FRANKLIN, BERTON's long-time manager, joked that SINCLAIR's enthusiasms sometimes got the better of him.
"He had total recall. He had a photographic memory. He had a beautiful voice, of course. And he spent all his money. He never had a penny," she said. But "I have a daughter who's a physicist. She teaches at Harvard. They'd get together, and she'd say to me, 'He really doesn't know that much about physics.' He could talk and he knew so much that you'd believe everything he said. Sometimes you did catch him.
"He was extraordinarily curious and had a tremendous knowledge. He awed most people because of that," she added. FRANKLIN had originally met SINCLAIR when he taught at Lorne Greene's Academy of Radio Arts in Toronto.
Then there were SINCLAIR's lunches with Conrad Black. "Twenty five years ago or something, Conrad Black had phoned me up and said, 'Do you know Lister SINCLAIR? He's my intellectual hero, and I've never met him, and could you arrange a lunch,' " remembered writer, broadcaster and former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation chairman Patrick WATSON. All three had that lunch in one of Black's corporate board rooms. WATSON later wrote about it in his autobiography, and Black chided him for doing so.
WATSON and Black then bumped into each other in June this year, "and after we joked about it, Black said, 'We should reconvene the lunch.' And we do. Those two guys just went at it about European military history until your head was spinning." This was in July. "It was just great to be a spectator at that one," WATSON said.
But even though SINCLAIR was "a powerful intellectual, he was also a populist. And he wanted to make ideas and a penetrating view of the world available to the widest possible audience," WATSON said.
Similarly, WOLCH noted that "he profoundly believed that the people who listened to our programs were smart, but perhaps not necessarily in the subject area that we were discussing that night."
That notion of making the material accessible was very important to SINCLAIR. "We would pass drafts of the script back and forth, back and forth, constantly editing and rewriting to get it just right. He had no ego whatsoever when it came to editing his writing."
