Doctor remembered for putting others first
Former Lion's head physician at some 1,500 births
By Jim ALGIE, Sun Times Staff, Page A1
Her colleagues knew her as a cheerful, conscientious physician. Her children knew her for a dedication to her profession that carried through more than 40 years of family practice on the Bruce Peninsula and often interrupted her personal and family life. Her patients just knew her as Doctor Norma.
Dr. Norma HOPKINSON, 82, died suddenly Thursday at the Grey Bruce Health Services hospital in Owen Sound.
A memorial service was to he held at 2 p.m. today at Central United Church in Lion's Head.
Although Doctor HOPKINSON had moved in recent years to Owen Sound, Lion's head is the place where both she and her husband, the late Doctor Mervyn HOPKINSON, worked together for years. They were instrumental in the construction in the late 1950s of a community hospital in the village which served as a health-care base for people living on the peninsula.
Dr. HOPKINSON, the presiding physician at more than 1,500 births, was well known throughout the region. Even on the day she died, daughter Joan IRVINE met three health-care workers in the hospital emergency department who were former colleagues or patients, including one delivered by Doctor HOPKINSON.
"She lived for other people, I would say," IRVINE said in an interview. "I walked in the night she died into the emergency room and all the people there had been touched by her. She lived for other people, to help other people."
When she retired in 1991, Doctor HOPKINSON told Sun Times reporter Pam HEAVEN she was one of only three women in the University of Western Ontario's 1946 graduating class.
Back then there was a quota that allowed only 10 per cent of medical students to be female.
Following internships at Saint Michael's and Women's College hospitals in Toronto, she began in practice in the Orillia area where she met her future husband. They moved together to Lion's head in 1951 and stayed.
For several years afterward, the HOPKINSONs were the only doctors on the Bruce Peninsula.
A retired colleague, Doctor Jim LEESON of Wiarton, knew Norma HOPKINSON as a fellow student at University of Western Ontario.
"She always seemed to be a cheerful, conscientious physician who kept up to date," LEESON said in an interview from his Sauble Beach home.
Dr. HOPKINSON was in a wheelchair during their last meeting, a dinner out in Owen Sound, but was alert and in reasonably good health otherwise, LEESON said.
Because the Bruce Peninsula is a habitat for poisonous Massassauga rattlesnakes, part of the HOPKINSON medical practice involved the treatment of snake bites. IRVINE recalls their back yard became a depository for live snakes to be used as sources of venom for used in snakebite serum.
"People brought them in, they'd get $5 (per snake)… and my cousin, John, would collect the box and fly it down" to serum producers in Toronto.
Both her parents were coroners and IRVINE recalls them studying materials on unusual causes of death.
"It was an unusual upbringing, I'll tell you that," IRVINE said.
Dr. HOPKINSON moved from Lion's head to Owen Sound to be closer to family. In Owen Sound, she was an active member of the University Women's Club and a recently formed Unitarian Church group.
Dr. HOPKINSON was also a lifelong music lover and pianist who faithfully attended concerts of the Georgian Bay Symphony. She was a passionate amateur photographer, dabbled in watercolour painting and loved exploring nature. She donated her body to the University of Western Ontario for medical research.
She maintained an active interest in politics and international affairs.
"She read two or three newspapers every day," IRVINE said. "Towards the end, the main thing was that she get her newspapers.
Born and raised in Hensall, Ontario, Dr.; HOPKINSON was among four children of Elizabeth THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Norman COOK. She is survived by three children and five grandchildren. She was the mother of Joan IRVINE of Big Bay, Mary HOPKINSON of Owen Sound and Bruce HOPKINSON of Lansdowne. She is also survived by a sister, Eleanor CORLETT of Shelburne and two brothers, Doug COOK of Hensell and Bob COOK of Grand Bend.

20-year-old dies on snowmobile trail
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Page 12
A snowmobiler from Barrie was found dead by Friends on a trail near New Lowell Sunday afternoon.
Travis PELLETIER, 22, of 121 Grove Street, was found on the trail, near Sunnidale Sideroad 6/7, around 2 p.m.
The man's family said he had been missing since around 2 a.m. Saturday morning when he left to test his snowmobile after making some adjustments.
Police said PELLETIER missed a turn while going along the trail and struck a tree. The location was just 10 minutes from his parents' home, according to family members.
Mark KINNEY, a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police said alcohol, excess speed and not wearing a helmet are "a" considered to be factors" in the fatal crash.
Police were on the scene Sunday for almost four hours, trying to piece together what transpired.
"Travis lived on the edge a bit," said Bruce COOK, PELLETIER's stepfather. "But deep down he was a good-hearted person who loved his mom."
"Right now we are trying to celebrate his life."
PELLETIER belonged to the Serpent River First Nation in Cutler, Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
COOK said his stepson grew up in Orangeville and later New Lowell. He attended one year at Stayner Collegiate Institute.

Sledder dies, alcohol a factor
Family mourns the loss of son who died while taking his snowmobile for an early Saturday morning ride. Searchers found the young man's body on Sunday afternoon.
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A 22-Year-Old snowmobiler from Barrie was found dead by Friends on a trail near New Lowell Sunday afternoon.
Travis PELLETIER of 121 Grave Street, was found dead on the trail, near Sunnidale Sideroad 6/7, around 2 p.m.
The man's family said he had been missing since around 2 a.m. Saturday morning when he left to test his snow machine after making some adjustments.
Law enforcement officials said that the deceased missed a turn while going along the trail and struck a tree. The location was just 10 minutes from his parents' home, according to family members.
Mark KINNEY, a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police, said that alcohol, excess speed and not wearing a helmet are "all considered to be factors" in the fatal crash.
KINNEY said that police were on the scene Sunday for almost four hours, trying to piece together what transpired. The Clearview Fire Department was also on hand for about the first 45 minutes, but other than that Chief Dave CARRUTHERS wasn't able to say what role his people played because he hadn't received a full report.
Bruce COOK, PELLETIER's step-father, talked by telephone with The Stayner Sun on Monday afternoon.
"Travis lived on the edge a bit," he said. "But deep down he was a goodhearted person who loved his mom."
PELLETIER had been arrested and convicted in the past for mischief under $5,000. He also was convicted for drug offences. On both occasions he was sentenced to jail time.
"He had some issues but he was trying to find his niche in life again," COOK said, adding he didn't want to discuss PELLETIER's troubled past. "Right now we are trying to celebrate his life."
PELLETIER was an aboriginal who belonged to the Serpent River First Nation in Cutler, Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
COOK said his stepson grew up in Orangeville and later New Lowell. He attended one year at Stayner Collegiate Institute but dropped out.
He said that PELLETIER, who he described as a handsome and slightly athletic man, enjoyed hockey as a youngster but that he abandoned the game in his early teens. Growing up he also liked to skateboard, COOK said.
He did not know if his stepson was working but he did note that PELLETIER was close with his girlfriend of seven years, Tamra LORBETSKIE.
He explained that PELLETIER came to visit his two siblings, Justin, 17, and Amanda, 15, on Friday night in New Lowell. He added that his stepson was drinking before venturing out on the three- or four-year-old snowmobile that he'd owned for only a few months. COOK said he wasn't sure if PELLETIER had much experience on snow machines.
COOK said that Justin and Amanda became alarmed around 10 a.m. Saturday morning when they realized that PELLETIER had not come back from the ride. Friends helped them search but it was not until Sunday that they discovered the man's body, approximately 10 feet off the trail, COOK said.
At one point during the search on Sunday morning COOK said his son Justin walked by the scene but did not see anything.
At the time PELLETIER went missing his stepfather and mother, Michelle, were visiting family on the reserve. COOK said they did not learn that PELLETIER was missing until getting home around noon on Sunday.
COOK said he learned the worst when two family Friends, Ryan McSWEEN and Paul FLANNERY, came up the driveway of their 21 Fawn Cres., home to say they found PELLETIER's body.
Throughout the ordeal COOK said his wife and children have been surrounded by family and Friends, something that has helped a great deal.
PELLETIER's body was taken to Barrie's Royal Victoria Hospital on Sunday for a post-mortem, scheduled to take place Monday afternoon, police said. Details of the autopsy were not available.
The Serpent River Band is handling the funeral arrangements, COOK noted, adding that PELLETIER will be buried on the reserve. He said the man's body was to be picked up yesterday. There will be no public service.
Still, COOK said that in memory of his stepson donations can be made to Stayner Collegiate Institute, where Amanda and Justin attend school or the Barrie Native Friendship Centre.
PELLETIER leaves behind his mother, siblings Justin, 17, Amanda Tammy, 34 and Dean 32.

After serving with the Royal Air Force and Royal Air Force Vol. Reserve 1946-54 and beginning his career with Transparent Paper Ltd, he emigrated to Canada with his bride and growing family in 1957. Here his family and career thrived as he spent the next 20 years in management positions in the building materials manufacturing industry. He was president of Westroc Industries, Director of British Plasterboard, and served as a director of the National Home Builders Association of Canada. Following this Nigel chose a less travelled career path in residential real estate in the Oakville area as agent, broker and business partner. A long time member of the Oakville Club, Nigel's interests in squash, tennis, boating and music kept him active and his Friends entertained. Nigel also applied his engineering experience and technical aptitude to model railroading. He will long be remembered for the family parties he and Babs hosted with games and activities for all ages. As his disease progressed Nigel lost his joie de vivre and slowly withdrew from social activities. Nigel and Babs have been residing quietly in Milton for several years. Following Nigel's wishes, he has been cremated and a memorial service and suitable send off will be arranged when his snowbird Friends have returned. Donations may be made in his memory to the Victorian Order of Nurses Canada Foundation.

OLIVER, Peter -- Dispatch:
By Bert ARCHER, Page M4
'He would just eat books," said Peter OLIVER's daughter, Anne HODGSON. "He was always reading, reading, reading."
And as a professor of legal history at York University and editor-in-chief of the Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History, as well as associate editor of the Ontario Historical Studies series of publications, Mr. OLIVER had plenty of opportunity to indulge his passion while exercising a major influence on the course of legal historical studies in Canada.
"My father worked very hard," said his son, Kevin OLIVER, who remembers him always being available to his three kids (including another son, Tony), no matter how busy he was, "yet he did not see it as work."
Though he retired from teaching last spring and had recently moved to Stratford with his partner, Sandra WEBSTER, Mr. OLIVER had planned to continue his work at Osgoode and retire at the same time as his friend, Ontario Chief Justice Roy McMURTRY, in a couple of years.
Mr. OLIVER was the author of five books, and at the time of his death from esophageal cancer on May 14 at the age of 66, was working on his sixth, a history of the Conservative Party in Ontario. "He was a Liberal federally, but a Conservative provincially and for some reason, he just always wrote about the Conservative Party," Ms. HODGSON said. His other books include an edition of the diaries of Allan GROSSMAN, Ontario's first Jewish Conservative cabinet minister.
A memorial service will be held at Osgoode Hall at 5: 30 p.m. on June 8, featuring tributes from Chief Justice McMURTRY and historian Ramsay COOK. A book of essays in his honour, planned since his retirement, is also in the works.

GRAY/GREY, Mary " Peggy" -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Page M6
For decades, secrecy laws prevented Peggy GRAY/GREY from telling even her husband the details of her wartime role with the code breakers at Bletchley Park.
Only long after the Second World War could they hear the full story of her work among the best British brains of the day, the so-called Bletchley Boffins, who cracked the German Enigma code. But even then she barely discussed her wartime service, said her daughter, Wendy COOK.
Ms. GRAY/GREY signed up in 1942 and became a petty officer with the Women's Royal Navy Service, in charge of several other W.R.E.N.S. stationed at Bletchley Park, testing the various code combinations the cryptologists came up with.
In London for a dance during the war, she met Donald T. GRAY/GREY, a Canadian serving with the Royal Air Force. They were married in 1945 and she moved to Toronto as a war bride.
Ms. COOK said her mother was an avid golfer and shopper who enjoyed playing cards with her faithful bridge circle and liked to do crosswords, the bigger the better.
"The Christmas crossword, that was a red-letter day for her," remembers Ms. COOK, the younger of the family's two children. "She was a stay-at-home mom, but was a very dedicated volunteer with the Canadian Cancer Society."
Ms. GRAY/GREY kept her home in North York for several years after her husband died in 1990, resisting the idea of a seniors' residence.
"Then, of her own volition, she decided to go to an assisted-care home," Ms. COOK said. "The one thing she always said was that there were too many old people there -- she preferred young people."
Ms. GRAY/GREY died on May 26 after a period of decline. She was 87.
