JARVIS, Anita Agnes, B.Sc., M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P., C.C.
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Doctor Anita JARVIS on June 25, 2006. Anita was born in Szeged, Hungary. Her father was a professional engineer and entrepreneur. In addition to Hungarian, at age 3 she learned to speak German and English, to which she later added French. She loved to spend the summers swimming and rowing in the River Tisza. After the war she started to study chemistry in Budapest, but by 1949 she knew that she could not possibly live in a communist country pretending to beliefs that she did not share. So, in spite of the close to impenetrable Iron Curtain, she managed to escape to Austria from where two years later, in 1951, she emigrated to Canada. She finished her chemistry degree in Montreal, where she also met her husband Gregory, to whom she was married for 55 years. Their daughter, Ingrid, was born in Montreal, just before they moved to Ottawa where Gregory enrolled in medicine. Anita also followed Gregory into medicine. She graduated as an M.D., with summa cum laude, just three weeks after the birth of her second daughter, Arianna. They moved to Toronto following her internship where, in the shadow of the cold war at its height, Anita embarked on her second successful career: that of a researcher on the health impacts of radioactive fallout. After publishing close to twenty refereed papers, she decided to launch her third and longest career: that of a dermatologist. She practiced dermatology for some thirty years, much of it in partnership with her daughter Ingrid and with her close friend Peter HACKER. Her final career, running parallel with her dermatology practice, was that of grandmother to Spencer and Colin in whom she invested all the infinite love of which she was capable. In January 2005 she became seriously ill. She died peacefully on June 25, 2006. She was an exceptionally giving person who had a lifelong love affair with her husband, adored her daughters, and loved her brother and his family. But she also had a number of acquired daughters for whom she also became a mother figure: Sheila MURRAY, Iona JAFFE, Rozalia PETROVICS, and Dijana OLIVER. To all of these, and to her close Friends, she will be irreplaceable. A private service has taken place.

Anita JARVIS, Biochemist And Dermatologist (1929-2006)
As a teenager, she escaped the Communist regime in Hungary and came to Canada as an indentured servant, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S13
A brilliant student who fled Hungary during the Communist regime in a pair of high-heeled shoes and came to Canada as an indentured servant, Anita JARVIS was a biochemist and a medical researcher before becoming a leading dermatologist in Toronto.
"There are people who are naturally larger than life and she was one of them," said her younger brother, Ivan FELLEGI, a former refugee and now chief statistician of Canada. "She saved my life many times and she saved my daughter's life," he said.
In 1963, Doctor FELLEGI's infant daughter had had diarrhea for six weeks and was wasting away. She had celiac disease, a syndrome that was not well known or understood 40 years ago. It was Doctor JARVIS who deduced that the baby had a gluten intolerance. "She was always so well read about aspects of medicine she didn't even practise," he said.
A devoted and inspiring mother to her own children, Doctor JARVIS also embraced more than half a dozen young women as "adopted" daughters, inviting them to use her house as a second home, offering them advice on all aspects of their lives, encouraging them to further their educations and, with her husband's help, often supplying funds for tuition and other necessities.
Tall, elegant and slim, her blond hair always perfectly coiffed, she never left the house without her pearl necklace and earrings, whether she was setting out for a power walk in the morning or a performance of the opera or theatre in the evening.
Anita Agnes FELLEGI was grew up in Szeged, Hungary, the elder of two children of Andrew and Barbara FELLEGI. Her father owned a stone-finishing factory that made monuments, tombstones and building facades; her mother was the daughter of a wealthy landowning family, although most of the family estates had been lost in the peace settlements after the First World War. Anita and Ivan were raised with governesses and servants and spent summers on the River Tisza, swimming and boating.
Anita grew up speaking German and English, as well as Hungarian, and later learned French. Always in awe of his brilliant older sister, Doctor FELLEGI remembers how she told him, when she was 17 and he was 11, that if he didn't want to be a "street bum" he should put away adventure stories and start reading the classics. She suggested he start with The Royal Game, a short novel by Stefan Zweig, which remains "one of the most beautiful books I have ever read," he said. "I was hooked on classical literature from then on, so if I am an intellectual these days, I can thank my sister for it."
The FELLEGIs survived the Red Army's invasion of Hungary at the end of the Second World War and prospered, after a fashion, during the pseudo-democratic regime the Soviets allowed from 1945 to 1947, before the Stalinist crackdown. Anita, who was studying chemistry at the University of Budapest, couldn't tolerate the official lies and hypocrisy and talked to her parents about fleeing to Austria. Her father was unwilling to leave his aged mother, and her mother was unable to leave her husband, so Anita, 19, made her own plans to leave in February, 1949, telling nobody except Ivan, who was then 13.
She and a male friend pretended to be betrothed lovers so that they could visit his family, who lived in the restricted border region adjacent to Austria. She left home decked out in jewellery, high-heeled shoes, three pairs of stockings, and carrying her best clothes in two suitcases -- as though determined to impress her future in-laws. She met her little brother to say goodbye and gave him her jewellery to take back home. Her friend then escorted her across the heavily guarded border. To this day, her brother wishes he had persuaded his sister to keep the jewels so that she could have sold them in Austria to support herself.
She made her way to Vienna and then to Innsbruck, where she was awarded some scholarships based on her sterling academic transcripts from Budapest. Her father also managed to send her some money via a courier. Two years later, she applied to immigrate to Canada, which, in 1951, meant pledging to serve as a domestic servant for two years.
In Montreal, her ability to speak four languages immediately attracted the attention of Gaspard Fauteux (who had been appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec in October, 1950) and his wife Marguerite (who was suddenly chatelaine of a large household in Quebec City). The Fauteuxs quickly learned that their new maid knew nothing about cooking, cleaning, laundry or housekeeping.
One of her first tasks was to iron Mr. Fauteux's white dress trousers so he could wear them to his inaugural ball. She scorched the seat and, following the enterprising suggestion of her employer's children (who were already fond of the new maid), camouflaged the burn marks with chalk. Of course, the chalk wore off and Mr. Fauteux unwittingly walked around for much of the evening with a big brown mark on the back of his pants.
All was forgiven. In fact, after about six weeks as a maid, the family, recognizing her intelligence, used its influence to release her from her indentureship. She found a job as a lab technician at a pharmaceutical company while continuing to study for her degree at night at Sir George Williams University (now Concordia). At a night class in German literature, she met her future husband, Gregory JARVIS. (The son of a Russian father and a German mother, he was born Gregorij YAKIROV in Berlin in 1921, was sent to England just before the Second World War and was subsequently evacuated to Canada.) The professor, recognizing their proficiency, excused them both from classes, and Gregory invited her to have a cup of coffee with him. They talked for the next five hours. "We couldn't get enough of each other. I knew that night that this was the woman of my life," he said. They were married in 1952. Neither the bride nor the groom had any family in Canada. The witnesses: were poet Irving Layton, their neighbour in Côte St.…Luc, and forensic pathologist Fred Jaffe.
Their daughter Ingrid was born in 1954, as Mrs. JARVIS was completing her undergraduate degree in chemistry. The family moved to Ottawa that September so that Mr. JARVIS, who by then had an engineering degree, could study medicine at the University of Ottawa. Her husband used to tell her jokingly that half of his M.D. belonged to her because he relied on her biochemistry notes, which were so much more concise and precise than his own.
Meanwhile, Anita enrolled in a PhD program in biochemistry, but switched to medicine in 1955, graduating summa cum laude in 1959, three weeks after her second daughter Arianna (now a psychologist practising in Vancouver) was born. Doctor JARVIS's brother Ivan came to Canada as a refugee after the Hungarian Revolution in 1956 and her parents managed to escape in 1959.
After Doctor JARVIS finished her internship, she and her husband moved to Toronto in 1960, with no money and two kids, so that he could do a residency in ophthalmology at the University of Toronto. This being the era of heavy nuclear testing, she immediately found a research job in the Department of Physiological Hygiene, working on the health impacts of radioactive fallout in mother's milk, air quality and soil. She also began working toward a PhD in radiation chemistry (combining her background in biochemistry and her new interest in radiation).
Dr. JARVIS published nearly 20 referred papers in academic journals, but encountered serious problems with her academic supervisor. He was treating her as an unpaid assistant, expecting her to write his lectures, presenting her research as his own and claiming her grant money, according to Doctor JARVIS's husband.
The situation became so intolerable that she left research and qualified as a dermatologist. She practised this new profession for the next 30 years, eventually inviting Doctor Peter HACKER, a Hungarian dermatologist she had met in Ottawa, to join her and, latterly, her older daughter Ingrid, who qualified as a dermatologist in 1983.
"She was an inspiring role model," her daughter said, joking that she got medicine along with mother's milk. As a teenager, she would go to her mother's medical office after school to do her homework -- and to have help with chemistry, math and physics. "She made everything fun."
While working with one's mother always presents "control issues," Dr. JARVIS says she found it easy, and an excellent learning experience. "She was a very good surgeon and I would pick up tips from her, because what makes you a good dermatologist is practice."
For the past three decades, Doctor JARVIS suffered from migraines on an almost daily basis. They varied in severity from bearable to "killer," as she described the worst ones. Her brother thinks her headaches may have been the beginning of a process that precipitated a seizure that caused her to fall into a coma on January 17, 2005. There has never been a definite diagnosis, although Doctor JARVIS's husband says one neurologist labelled his wife's condition as Hashimoto's encephalopathy, a rare brain disorder first described in 1966, ironically by a Doctor Brain.
Twice over the next 18 months, she emerged slightly from the coma, before she finally succumbed to pneumonia. "Rationally, I knew she would not recover after being in a coma for one year," said her brother, the statistician, "but while she was still alive there was always hope for a miracle."
Anita Agnes Fellegi JARVIS was born in Szeged, Hungary, on May 20, 1929. She died in Toronto on June 25 of pneumonia after a long illness. She was 77. She is survived by her husband, Doctor Gregory JARVIS, her daughters Ingrid and Arianna, two grand_sons and her brother Ivan FELLEGI and his family.
