GARBUTT--In loving memory of a dear mother and grandma, Emma, who passed away one year ago, April 13, 2005.
If roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for us
Place them in our mother's arms
And tell her they're from us.
Tell her we love and miss her
And when she turns to smile
Place a kiss upon her cheek
Because remembering her is easy
We do it every day
But there's an ache within our hearts
That will never go away.
Love you, Mum. Val, Dan and grand_son Cory. PS - See you in my dreams!

The gates of Heaven opened up, And slowly she walked through, So now there is one more angel, That God has in his care. We'll think of you often, And remember you in our prayers, We'll always miss you, But we'll meet again. Forever in our hearts and with our love, Jim, Ann, Al, Eileen, Donna, Don, Doug, Petra, Sandy and Andy.

Village's spirited defender dies
Long Branch's Marie CURTIS, 94, fought subway wars, hurricane Hazel
By James RUSK. Page A12
Marie CURTIS, who as reeve of the village of Long Branch from 1953 to 1962 paved its streets and fought the building of the Bloor-Danforth subway line, has died.
Ms. CURTIS, a feisty woman whose spirited advocacy for her municipality foreshadowed the careers of municipal leaders like Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCALLION, was one of the few remaining city political figures whose career began before the creation of Metropolitan Toronto in 1954.
A charter member of Metro council, Ms. CURTIS died of an apparent stroke on Sunday at age 94 in a nursing home in Markdale, said her daughter, Joan McGEE.
"She was absolutely a stormy petrel, as they used to call them in those days…. She was a doughty defender of her municipality, no doubt about it," said former Toronto mayor David CROMBIE. "I'm an old Swansea guy from the waterfront, and Marie CURTIS was one of my mom's heroes."
When Ms. CURTIS was reeve, the village on Long Branch on the shore of Lake Ontario had a population of only 10,000. Lakeshore Road, now Lakeshore Boulevard, was its main street, recalled Toronto councillor Doug HOLYDAY, whose family settled in the village in 1919.
"You could run into quite a few people on a Saturday and Marie knew just about everybody. Consequently, she was the reeve for nine years there," said Mr. HOLYDAY, the last mayor of Etobicoke before it was amalgamated with Toronto in 1997.
Ms. CURTIS and her husband moved to Long Branch in 1935 at the height of the Depression to escape high rents in Toronto. After a term as deputy reeve, she became reeve while the postwar boom was hitting a village that only a few years earlier had given returning Second World War veterans free building lots.
Those were likely lots on unpaved side streets, and one of Ms. CURTIS's achievements as reeve was to get sewer lines put in and the roads paved, her daughter said.
"They put in the sewers and they paved the streets and she got them to plant crabapple trees. And every spring, if you drive through Long Branch, there they still are on the edges of the streets," Ms. McGEE said.
Soon after Ms. CURTIS became reeve, two storms rolled in. One was the 1954 creation of Metropolitan Toronto, an upper-tier supergovernment that controlled and guided the city's postwar expansion.
The Lakeshore communities fought the creation of Metro, and although as reeve of Long Branch Ms. CURTIS served on the first Metro council, the fights did not end.
When Metro decided to build an east-west subway line and impose a small property-tax increase to help pay for it, she fought the tax all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.
She paid a price for her opposition to the subway line when she was tossed off Metro's executive committee.
At the time she told a reporter, "I'm in this fight because I think I'm right, and when you are right, you're not doing right by yourself or anyone else if you back down."
The other storm to hit in 1954 was hurricane Hazel. On October 15 that year, after moving up from the United States the storm battered Toronto, killing 81 people and leaving thousands of families homeless. Long Branch was severely flooded. After the storm, 30 properties that had been in its path on the flood plains of Etobicoke Creek were expropriated.
Property owners who thought they were not getting enough for their homes turned to Ms. CURTIS, and she helped them get more money from the city. Instead of houses being rebuilt at the same location, however, a 35-acre park was created at the mouth of Etobicoke Creek.
Then it came time to name the park.
"First they were going to call it Curtis Park, that was the story, then [former Ontario premier] Les FROST told [former Metro chair] Fred GARDINER that they would have to call it Marie Curtis Park, because there was only one Marie CURTIS. So they did that…. It is a living memorial to her. It always will be there," said Ms. McGEE said, adding that she will tell this story at her mother's funeral today.
In 1962, five years before a second round of amalgamation saw Long Branch merged into the city of Etobicoke, Ms. CURTIS left politics and moved with her husband to a retirement home near Flesherton in the Beaver Valley.
Until 1968, she was secretary-treasurer of the Mayors and Reeves of Ontario, the forerunner of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. Until a stroke four years ago, she returned to Toronto for events and, on occasion, to appear at council meetings to speak out for Long Branch, Mr. HOLYDAY said.
Ms. CURTIS was predeceased by her husband, Bryce, a son and a grand_son. She leaves her daughter, four grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Marie CURTIS, 94: Long Branch fighter on Metro Council
Marie CURTIS always spoke her mind
Fought doggedly for her constituents
By Phinjo GOMBU, Staff Reporter
As reeve of the long-gone village of Long Branch, Marie CURTIS took pride in being described as a plain-spoken housewife whose political commentary was as crusty as the scrumptious apple pies she loved to bake.
And as politicians -- including then-Toronto mayor Nathan PHILLIPS and Metro chairman Fred GARDINER -- soon realized, they crossed CURTIS's path at their peril.
The year was 1953, and CURTIS, who represented Long Branch -- a working-class community of about 10,000 long since incorporated into Etobicoke -- on Metro Council, was a reeve who believed in speaking her mind.
"If you wanted a job done, call Marie," recalled Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCALLION, whose long political career in local politics was beginning just as CURTIS's was ending.
"She was such an energetic, lively person who didn't hesitate to take a stand on an issue," McCALLION said. "When she was active, I was just a junior in local politics and I always admired her and had great respect for her."
From her epic battles against the east-west Toronto subway line, to helping the victims of Hurricane Hazel relocate, to creating Toronto's regional parkland system, CURTIS left her mark on a city that was just beginning to take form.
She lambasted builders who got a permit for one thing and then built another, called the youth of the day "big lumps" who didn't deserve publicly funded community centres, and fought tooth and nail for the interests of her constituents.
CURTIS, who is honoured today by Marie Curtis Park on the banks of Etobicoke Creek and Lake Ontario, died Sunday at her residence, Grey Gables, in Markdale, southeast of Owen Sound. She was 94.
She was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Bryce CURTIS, in 1988, and by her son Bill in 1987. She is survived by her daughter Joan McGEE, five grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
Ann Marie McCARTHY, who was born on a farm in Wyebridge, near Midland, was a shy country girl until an aunt visited from St. Louis, Missouri, when she was 9 years old. Family lore has it that the aunt took a shine to her and the two went back to Missouri, where the girl discovered the joys of music, theatre and libraries things she didn't have back on the farm.
Ann Marie, who never went to high school or university, was a changed girl when she returned home. One of seven children, she was 14 when her mother died, and by 18 she was in Toronto working in a hat factory to help support the family.
A few years later she met her husband, Bryce CURTIS, and the couple settled in the village of Long Branch because -- much like today -- a house in Toronto was out of reach.
Back then, the village was a poor community made up of people who worked in about a half-dozen local industries that included making paint, bricks and water meters.
CURTIS's first foray into politics came when she was elected president of the local Home and School Association, where she led a victorious battle to get kindergarten classes. The ease of the victory piqued her interest, and she began attending local council meetings to learn about the business of politics.
In 1951, her life took a crucial turn when she learned the deputy reeve's spot was being filled by acclamation because nobody wanted to run against him.
"I thought that was awful," she told a journalist. "Why, he hadn't done anything but rubber-stamp the rest of the council all the time I was watching. So I went out to try and find someone to fight that drone."
Unsuccessful in finding the right candidate, she returned home one day and said she had found the perfect person: herself. She went on to win in 1952.
A year later, in 1953, CURTIS ran for reeve -- roughly equivalent to village mayor -- and was elected. Long Branch voters quickly learned they were on to a good thing and continued to re-elect her until she retired in 1962, a decade of municipal politics under her belt.
Betraying her housewife roots, CURTIS often said her proudest accomplishments included getting the village streets paved because she was fed up with complaints from parents about their kids tracking road tar into the house. She planted crabapple trees that still bloom every spring, and brought the village its first artificial ice rink by encouraging woman to sell kisses to gentlemen for $1 apiece.
But it was on Metro Council, where she was a charter member -- and the first woman to sit on the powerful executive committee with "Big Daddy" Gardiner -- that she began to make her mark.
CURTIS's politics were both populist and conservative.
She likened fathers who deserted their families to people who sold tainted meat from dead and diseased animals. Both, she pronounced, should be horsewhipped.
CURTIS wanted police officers posted outside drinking establishments to keep drunks from driving. But she didn't think government could force people out of their cars and on to public transit, and supported the ill-fated Spadina Expressway.
It was, however, her opposition to the Bloor-Danforth subway line -- a pet project of the mayors of Metro Toronto's bigger municipalities in the early 1950s -- that propelled her into the limelight.
CURTIS said she couldn't support the idea because the residents of Long Branch were being forced to subsidize the Toronto Transit Commission while zoned bus fares in her village were rising unfairly.
The battle went all the way to the Supreme Court and twice cost her a place on council's executive committee. But both times she bounced back.
"My mother always told me that the only way she did really well at Metro Council was because she did her homework first," her daughter Joan said.
After she retired as reeve, CURTIS continued to play a role in politics for six years as executive director of the Association of Mayors and Reeves of Ontario -- forerunner to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.
"She was well-respected by the elected people across the province," McCALLION said.
On leaving municipal politics, CURTIS was urged by all three political parties to run for the provincial Legislature. Instead, she moved to a farm near Markdale to be with her retired husband.
Visitation is at Gentle Shepherd Community Church, 8th Concession and Inkerman St. in Eugenia, near Markdale, today from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A celebration of CURTIS's life will be held at the church tomorrow at 1 p.m.
