Star on ice, champ, adored coach
Generous spirit fed homeless man
Party, not memorial, to mark her life
By Debra BLACK, Staff Reporter
Rosemary FORBES died doing something she loved, tending her garden. It was a fitting end for a woman who was passionate about everything from gardening to ice skating.
The one-time Ice Follies dancer and Canadian Ladies Junior champion parlayed a love of skating into a career as a figure skating coach, first at the Lakeshore Skating Club and then the Port Credit Figure Skating Club. During 50-odd years of coaching, she taught thousands of youngsters how to skate.
"She treated every skater in the club equally -- it didn't matter if you had talent or not," says Siobhan CRAWLEY, a former student.
"She was very caring. She had a real sense of humour in the way she taught. She had a way of making you feel important even if you felt unsure." FORBES was teaching until the day she died. Many of her students are beside themselves, said CRAWLEY, who sits on the board of the Port Credit Figure Skating Club. She has arranged for a grief counsellor to talk to the children.
"They loved her," said CRAWLEY. " She was so pivotal to our club. We won't be the same club without her. That was her legacy -- she has taken so many little ones and started them on their way."
Born in Toronto, FORBES, in her 70s, died earlier this month from heart problems.
A passionate gardener and traveller, FORBES married Freddie, who had a drugstore in New Toronto, in 1959. He died in 1991. They never had children.
She also ran a skating group, called Morning Glories, for women aged 40 to 80.
She was generous to Friends, but also strangers. FORBES had lived near a grocery store and put her garbage in the nearby dumpster. "One day a homeless person climbed out of the dumpster and growled at her: 'Stay away, this is my territory,'" recalled Taylor ECHLIN, a friend and executor of her estate. "Rosemary pointed her finger at him and said: 'No one in Canada should eat food out of a garbage bin. You come home now and I'll fix you a sandwich and anytime you're hungry I want you to knock on my door.'"
No funeral or memorial service is being held. FORBES "didn't want people to be sad," ECHLIN said. "She wanted me to hold a big party for all her Friends so we can laugh and giggle and share memories." The party will be in late November, he said.

COOPER, Marjorie Helen (née LICK)
Left us on March 28th in her 81st year. She passed on in peace and dignity at her Toronto home in the loving care of her family and Friends. Her family caregivers extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Giovanna SIRIANNI, Heather WHALEN, Marlene CARSCALLEN and Heather McLEAN for helping her through a mercifully brief and intense battle with cancer. Born in Calgary, educated at the Universities of Toronto, Ottawa and Carleton, Marjorie was known and admired for her elegance, intellect, dry wit and peaceful spirit. Betrayed by her body, her sharp mind continued her daily ritual of completing the Globe and Mail crossword puzzle until two days before she died. She also was able to enjoy most of the televised World Championships in both skating and curling. Marjorie is predeceased by Bill COOPER, her husband of 54 years, her brother Gordon LICK of Ottawa and her daughter Margaret CRAY of Holland Landing. She leaves four children, Ian (Toronto), Doug (Powell River, British Columbia), Judy EAST (Calais, Maine), Kathy (Lindsay, Ontario), and eleven grandchildren, Valery, Alexander and Patrick COOPER, Mathew, Devon and Caitlynn PIANOSI, Graham and Heather CRAY, Jocelyn COOPER, Merryn LUSH and Alyson EAST. She is also survived by her daughters-in-law, Karen COOPER (nee PIANOSI,) Kate SAUNDERS, Sandra WRIGHT and sons-in-law, Paul CRAY, Richard EAST and Stuart LUSH. She lived a rich, full life that had its share of both great joy and extreme hardships. A scholarship at the age of 16 took her to Trois Pistolles, Quebec for a French immersion experience, the memory of which she treasured ever after. She met Bill in 1941 on one of many hiking and cycling expeditions in the Canadian Youth Hostelling Association. She shared Bill's keen advocacy for the Canadian Youth Hostelling Association and hosted a chuckwagon-style Canadian Youth Hostelling Association information booth at the Calgary Stampede of 1942. Marjorie served in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Women's Division working in Halifax during the war. With Bill and four other Friends, she went on a cycling expedition to New England in 1946 visiting Boston and Cape Cod. They were married in 1948 after both completed university. Her professional career included teaching sociology at the University of Toronto and she served as Registrar of Erindale College (now Utah, Mississauga) for many years, a job that she found deeply fulfilling especially when she knew she had helped students make difficult choices in their lives. After her retirement she focused on a quiet life of spiritual questing and fulfillment and never missed the full season of the Canadian Opera Company. Her community of Friends of Grace Church on-the-Hill meant the world to her. At Grace Church she was a member of the Altar Guild, the Cariboo Group, the Adult Christian Education Committee and she was the founder and moving spirit of The Book and Film Club. Serving as librarian, she was instrumental in the development and maintenance of the Church library. Her spiritual path also led her to become an oblate with the Sisters of St. Benedict in Erie, Pennsylvania. Her many contributions to the Church were recognized last Spring in the Award for Meritorious Service, an honour that, very quietly, gave her great pride. Funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 1, 2006, 11 a.m., Grace Church On-The-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Road with luncheon and reception to follow in the Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, Mount Sinai Hospital or the Palliative Care Unit at South Lake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket where her daughter received such excellent care.
