Margaret GIBSON, Writer: (1948-2006)
Author of Opium Dreams and The Butterfly Ward produced works of singular vision, writes Sandra MARTIN. It was an intense and brilliant output that was too often sidelined by the march of mental illness
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
There were many Margaret GIBSONs and all of them were complicated. She was like a prism that could shimmer with refracted brilliance one moment and then fracture into dangerous shards the next. As a writer, she was like a foreign correspondent reporting from the front lines of insanity, taking readers places where most of us have never been in collections of stories such as The Butterfly Ward and Sweet Poison, screenplays such as Outrageous, Ada and For the Love of Aaron and in her only published novel, Opium Dreams, which won the Chapters/Books in Canada first-novel award in 1997.
Although she self-diagnosed as autistic after she read Donna Williams's memoir, Nobody Nowhere, Ms. GIBSON was probably a paranoid schizophrenic. In one of her "good" periods in the early 1990s she described what it felt like to have a mental illness. "It is not so much that madness… is a muddied eyehole, but rather it is seeing things too sharply, clearer than clear, a light that fills up your eyeholes and is, in the end, blinding with its visions."
Ms. GIBSON worked with some top literary editors, including Ellen SELIGMAN at McClelland and Stewart, Phyllis BRUCE at Harper Collins and Barry CALLAGHAN of Exile Editions. "All writers write out of their experiences, but this was like an open vein," said Mr. CALLAGHAN. "If ever a writer in this country hit on the terrors that seem to strike at women who are defenceless and vulnerable," it was Ms. GIBSON. " She was frightening in her presence and she was frightening in her work because she was really in touch with the madness that was loose inside herself" and by extension, in "metropolitan life." "Losing the words" to describe her terrors was often a signal that her illness was on the march again. And that made knowing Ms. GIBSON a desperate struggle to keep her afloat without being sucked into the whirlpool that was her life. As her loyal friend, Shirley FLAVELLE, said: "She was a 24/7 girl. You could only live with her when you were young."
Margaret Louise GIBSON was the second of five children of Bell Telephone engineer Dane GIBSON and his wife Audrey (neé McCULLOUGH.) She grew up on a small rural property on what was then the eastern edge of Scarborough, Ontario, on land her father, an air force tail gunner in the Second World War, had been able to buy with a veteran's grant. Her older sister Dana was bright, gregarious and an excellent student. Her twin sisters, Lenore and Deirdre, were a younger playful unit. Margaret, or Margie as her family called her, was the solitary dreamy one.
"We were a typical Canadian family except that there was one daughter who was always ill, her whole life," said Deirdre GIBSON, a planner. Margaret GIBSON herself once said that "colours hurt" when she was a child. "A leaf was a kaleidoscope," she said. "Starting kindergarten damn near killed me. But I was never lonely I'm a one-piece band." Puberty is difficult for most adolescents but for Ms. GIBSON it was catastrophic. Always withdrawn, she started slashing her arms and eventually attempted suicide. She spent about a year at the Homewood Health Centre in Guelph, Ontario, experiences that she would later use as a trigger for her fiction. After she was released, her parents sold the beloved family property and moved to a housing development so she could start "over again" in a fresh environment.
The new school was even more disaffecting than the old one, but Margaret did make Friends with two alienated classmates, Shirley FLAVELLE and Craig Russell EADIE. He later became well known as the female impersonator, Craig RUSSELL. A bisexual, he was addicted to drug and drinks and died of an Aids-related stroke in 1990.
In September of 1971, Ms. GIBSON married Stuart GILBOORD, a young man she had met briefly six years earlier through her father. "She was damn interesting to talk with," Mr. GILBOORD said, adding that she was an attractive woman who wore heavy makeup as a defence against the world. Their son Aaron was born on November 22, 1972.
At the time, Ms. GIBSON's psychiatrist was encouraging her to write as therapy. "I would come home from work and we would talk for three or four hours about her writing," said Mr. GILBOORD. Her concentration was all-consuming and obsessive and she used phrases that were brilliant, but the process was "draining."
Mr. GILBOORD took some of his wife's stories to a script supervisor he knew at TVOntario. She showed them to Michael MacKLEM of Oberon Press in Ottawa. Ms. GIBSON's stories subsequently appeared in Oberon's annual Best Canadian Stories anthologies and in a solo collection, The Butterfly Ward, under her married name, Margaret Gibson GILBOORD. (She and Mr. GILBOORD, who now works for a call centre, divorced when their son was a toddler.)
Reviews were exultant. William FRENCH, then literary editor of The Globe and Mail, described her as a "writer of burning intensity and rare vision, an accomplished explorer of hidden caves of the mind." This debut shared the City of Toronto Book Award in 1977 with Margaret Atwood's Lady Oracle.
Meanwhile, Ms. GIBSON's story Making It (from The Butterfly Ward) about her Friendship with Craig RUSSELL was made into the low-budget film Outrageous. Starring Mr. RUSSELL as himself and Hollis McLAREN as Ms. GIBSON, it was the hit of the 1977 Toronto film festival.
Former Chatelaine editor Rona Maynard was a young writer at Flare magazine at the time. Intrigued by both Ms. GIBSON and The Butterfly Ward, she began writing a profile of the "hot" writer. "She had a deep Lauren Bacall voice, kohl-rimmed eyes, an air of world-weary glamour," smoked long black cigarettes in a holder and "had a burning passion for language unlike anything I have ever seen," said Ms. Maynard.
The two women became Friends, but when the profile was about to be published, Ms. GIBSON had her lawyer send a threatening letter to the magazine, and "so she dropped out of my life." At the time, Ms. GIBSON was also immersed in a bitter custody battle with her former husband. She turned some of that experience into Sweet Poison, a collection of stories published by Phyllis Bruce at HarperCollins. Another story was turned into the television movie, For the Love of Aaron.
Mr. GILBOORD provides a convincing anti-story to Ms. GIBSON's claims of abuse, saying that he and his father-in-law were in constant communication with each other and with child-welfare officials trying to protect Aaron and manage Ms. GIBSON's erratic behaviour.
"She tried the best she could to raise me," said Aaron GILBOORD, who is now 33 and living with his wife and three sons in Manitoba, where he works as a juvenile counsellor with young offenders. He left home when he was 16, but remained in touch with his mother and his father. Ms. GIBSON wrote a poem about her son, when he was 5, saying in part, "and to phone the doctor when I a.m. crazed and always you bring my pill bottles/offering them up with renewed hope each time." The poem appeared in Aurora: New Canadian Writing, edited by Morris Wolfe. By the late 1980s, Ms. GIBSON was living in a subsidized unit in a housing co-op. That's how she met her second husband, Juris RASA, an architectural draughtsman who was living in the same development. Apparently, she showed up at his door one day to ask for bandages because her fingers were bleeding from banging on the keys on her typewriter. Eventually, they moved in together and married. He helped her learn to use a computer and to make the transition from short stories to the longer form of the novel.
Her literary Friends, including the late Timothy Findlay and his partner, screenwriter William Whitehead, and journalist June Callwood helped her get grants to support her writing and introduced her to agent Dean Cooke, who agreed to represent her in the early 1990s. He believes that Mr. RASA made it possible for her to write Opium Dreams, the novel that Ellen Seligman published at McClelland and Stewart.
"I was always amazed by her stamina and staying power because I anticipated the editing of the book would be hard for her," said Ms. Seligman, who came to treasure their long conversations on the telephone. "I think writing sustained her, more so than any other form of nourishment."
The novel was a literary success, but Ms. GIBSON was sinking again into mental illness. She and Mr. RASA separated in the late 1990s after she repeatedly accused him of trying to murder her. He died about a year ago. Ms. Maynard had reconnected with Ms. GIBSON in the mid 1990s during one of her many episodes of instability and formed an unofficial support group with Mr. Cooke, Mr. Wolfe and Ms. Callwood. "She was getting farther and farther away from reality," said Ms. Maynard.
About four years ago, Ms. GIBSON was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. She was seeing an oncologist, but stopped chemotherapy, probably because she was afraid of the side effects of her complex combination of medications.
Margaret Louise GIBSON was born in Scarborough, Ontario, on June 4, 1948. She died of metastasized breast cancer in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on February 25, 2006. She was 57. She is survived by her son Aaron, his wife Jennifer LAMBERT, their sons Logan, Drew and Ayden, and her three sisters Dana, Lenore and Deirdre and their families.

At Toronto, Ontario on December 10, 2006 just fifteen days short of her eighty-ninth birthday on Christmas Day. Daughter of the late James GILCHRIST and Georgina Gordon GILCHRIST of Toronto. Dear sister to the late Gordon, Donald (Christiane), Morag and Jean MATTHEWS. Beloved aunt of Nancy Ann, Donald (Jeanne) and Jean GILCHRIST, the late Peter MATTHEWS (Sharon), Rosalie RUFELDS and Christopher MATTHEWS (Liz) and great aunt of thirteen nieces and nephews. Christina attended Harbord Collegiate Institute, Toronto and then Trinity College, University of Toronto where she graduated in Classics in 1940. That year she was head of College at St. Hilda's College and was a member of the University of Toronto Student Council. Christina subsequently received her Bachelor of Education and her Master of Education from the University of Toronto. Christina commenced her high school teaching career in Ridgetown, Ontario where she taught Latin and Greek. She subsequently spent most of her 41 years as a teacher in Hamilton, where she taught at Westdale, Delta and Barton Secondary Schools. As a specialist Christina taught Classics, Physical Health and Education, Guidance and Counseling and Commercial, in addition to coaching many high school sport teams. Her dedication to her profession and her students was indicated by her absence from work for only five days in her teaching career, four of them as a result of a broken leg. Christina loved to travel to all parts of the globe and to spend time with her nieces and nephews, enduring endless hours at the card table with them. In recent years the ravages of Alzheimer's Disease took its toll on Christina's great energy and memory. The staff at Central Park Lodge, 123 Spadina Road, Toronto were extremely caring in looking after Christina during the past five years. Special mention should be made of Carol, Jannis and Blossom for their total compassion and care for Christina. A private service and interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery will take place at a later date.

CONWAY steps up for Attack
Backup goalie gets call minutes before 7-2 Owen Sound win
By Bill WALKER, Sun Times sports editor, Thursday, March 30, There really wasn't any time for Neil CONWAY to get nervous.
The 18-year-old Owen Sound Attack goalie was all set to take his customary seat at the end of the bench Wednesday where he would watch veteran overager Michael OUZAS start against the Kitchener Rangers.
But a bout of the flu made it impossible for OUZAS to keep anything down, which meant CONWAY had five minutes warning that he'd be the Game 4 starter in the Ontario Hockey League playoff series.
“Sometimes it's better to just get out there into the game without knowing but I had an idea that I may have to go in,” CONWAY said after being named the game's second star for a 35-save performance in the Attack's 7-2 victory over the Rangers.
“After the first couple shots I felt pretty comfortable.&rdquo
OUZAS left the ice with three minutes remaining in the warmup Wednesday. He was evaluated by team doctors and was diagnosed as having the flu and being dehydrated.
He's listed day-to-day.
“The decision was basically made after warmup so nobody had any time to dwell on it,” said Attack coach Mike STOTHERS.
“When a guy is threatening to vomit in the crease, or worse, you just can't do it so Neil had very little time to prepare. To his credit, he's been putting in so much extra time that it's great to see him rewarded.&rdquo
The Attack now have a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series.
Game 5 is set for Friday in Kitchener. If necessary, Game 6 will go Saturday in Owen Sound. Game time at the Harry Lumley Bayshore is 7: 30 p.m.
The Attack started the game with a sense of urgency, looking to give their sophomore goalie an early lead.
Jeff KYRZAKOS and Bobby RYAN put Owen Sound up 2-0 eight minutes into the game, but the Rangers tied it as Cory KONECNY and Matt AUFFREY scored 3: 12 apart late in the period.
“There are a lot of adjectives I could use (for this game) but most of them aren't appropriate for audiences,” said Rangers' coach/general manager Peter DEBOER.
“They faced some adversity with their backup goalie going and they found a way to get a win. It's eerily like Eric PFLIGLER coming in here last year,” he said, a reference to the Rangers backup who took the team to the conference final last season.
Andrej SEKERA gave the Attack the lead with 1: 28 remaining in the first when the puck squirted out from behind the net and he was able to shovel it past a startled Rangers goalie Dan TURPLE.
Mike ANGELIDIS made it 4-2 in the second when he stepped out of the penalty box and took a pass from SEKERA, breaking in alone and beating TURPLE with a backhand high to the glove side.
Owen Sound blew it open in the third as ANGELIDIS scored his second of the game, this one shorthanded. KYRZAKOS scored his second 10 minutes later on a two-man power play and centre Scott GILES finished it off with a late shorthanded marker.
“Our special teams worked and I think that was key,” said ANGELIDIS. “You have to give credit to Neil CONWAY. He stepped up huge for us.&rdquo
TURPLE made 26 saves on a night when he got little help from his defence.
“I feel bad for (TURPLE) because he's a guy who battled all year for us and we really hung him out to dry,” said DEBOER.
“I think we had an opportunity here to change the momentum of the series, but we would have had to show up and get off the bus and be ready to battle. Our big players who have not been big in the first three games had an opportunity to come in here and turn the series around. We didn't get contributions from anybody.&rdquo

Club shooting victim was target, police say
By Hayley MICK, Page A9
A Toronto man was the intended victim of a fatal shooting at a packed downtown nightclub early Monday, police said yesterday.
Kirk GILES, 30, died after a shooter sprayed bullets into the patio of Volume nightclub, triggering a stampede by hundreds of terrified patrons out onto Richmond Street West.
Police did not speculate as to why the shooter may have wanted to harm Mr. GILES, a native of Guyana and 15-year Toronto resident who was known to police.
Ricocheting bullets also hit the foot of a 28-year-old man and the leg of 20-year-old California woman, who was in Toronto for a wedding. None of the victims knew each other, police said.

Uzoma AZUH, 23: Got minorities on registry
Medical student saw need at marrow registry
His efforts led to matches for other leukemia patients
By Tanya TALAGA, Health Reporter
In less than a year, cancer came to Uzoma AZUH and took his life, but not before the 23-year-old medical student made a difference in the lives of others.
AZUH, who suffered from a fast-moving form of leukemia, started a movement to create awareness about the need for more ethnic minorities to get on Canada's national bone marrow registry.
The second-year student at Wayne State University in Detroit was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia last September. The Windsor man, of Nigerian descent, needed a bone marrow transplant to greatly increase his chance of survival.
Despite his efforts and those of family and Friends, that match never came. AZUH died August 13 of multiple organ failure after eight rounds of chemotherapy.
While he didn't find a match, his efforts led to the pairing of three patients with bone marrow donors, said his brother, Ogochukwu (Ogo) AZUH.
"He knew of (two) before he died," said AZUH, 21. Like his big brother, Ogo AZUH is studying medicine at Wayne State.
Uzoma AZUH wanted to become a doctor so he could continue helping other people, said his best friend Sonali Bhalsod, 20.
"Because of all the work he has done, two or three people will live now," she said. "He got his wish. I couldn't possibly want more for him than that."
Shortly after he was diagnosed with cancer, AZUH began a campaign in the Windsor area to make people aware of the need to get on the bone marrow registry.
He was featured in a May 15 article in the Star about how the national bone marrow registry is currently overwhelmingly Caucasian. According to figures available at the time, of nearly 230,000 Canadians registered on the unrelated donor transplant list, only 0.5 per cent of potential donors classify themselves as black, says Canadian Blood Services, which manages the registry.
One per cent of those on the list are aboriginal, 1.6 per cent East Indian, 3.6 per cent Asian, 0.3 per cent Hispanic and 83 per cent Caucasian. The others are classified as unknown.
Bone marrow is found in the breast bone, ribs, hip bones, skull and spine. Marrow produces infection-fighting white blood cells, oxygen-rich red blood cells and platelets used in clotting. Transplants are used to fight immune or blood disorder diseases such as acute myelogenous leukemia, in which the marrow produces faulty infection-fighting cells.
"A lot of traits in the bone marrow are inherited," AZUH told the Star. "I'm more likely to find a match in the ethnic community. People don't understand how important this is."
The week prior to AZUH's diagnosis, Ogo remembers him coughing a lot. Then came the night sweats. One morning AZUH woke up with rashes "all over his body," said Ogo. His brother went to hospital and was diagnosed days later.
Whether he was recuperating at home or from his hospital bed, AZUH worked hard to spread the word about donating.
"His campaign was for bone marrow donation awareness and testing, so that no one would ever have to go through what he or my family went through," Ogo and his sister Chinye wrote in an email to Friends shortly after their brother's death. "Uzo's philosophy was always… if things were hard for him, he would make it easier for the next person."
AZUH was an inspiration to those who knew him, said Ron GILES of Windsor, a bone marrow donor who worked with AZUH to raise awareness.
GILES, 42, donated his marrow to an unrelated teenage boy in 2003 and was so moved by the experience that he went to work trying to help others find a match, setting up a website, http://www.donorcorner.com. GILES visited AZUH shortly before he died. "He was optimistic everything would work out," GILES said. "We need to put more emphasis on getting people on the bone marrow registry. There could be matches out there. We need to carry on his fight."
As well as his brother and sister, AZUH leaves his mother Margaret and his father Doctor Victor AZUH.
A funeral was held in August.
