Dollmaker, renaissance artist
Known for brilliant Japanese Mataro dolls
Accomplished calligrapher, kimono designer
By Tim LAI, Staff Reporter
The death of a renowned self-taught dollmaker has created a large hole in Toronto's Japanese artistic community.
Miyoko OGURA was well known in the Japanese community for her artistic brilliance in the creation of Mataro dolls -- figures based on the daily life and folk tales of the Heian dynasty (784-1191), a period noted for its peace and cultural blossoming. She died September 29 at the age of 74.
Born in the southern prefecture of Kagoshima, OGURA was the only certified Mataro teacher in Toronto. Instructors must send in dolls for examination in order to be licensed by the Mataro Doll Craft Academy in Tokyo.
Other teachers outside Japan operate in New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Paris and Hong Kong.
Mataro dolls are a type of Kimekomi Ningyou -- wooden dolls dressed in kimonos and other Japanese garb.
They preserve the tradition of hand-carved wooden dolls developed on the riverbanks of Kyoto more than 250 years ago.
The founder of the academy, Mataro KANABAYASHI, discovered a new way to manufacture these types of dolls by mixing Paulownia sawdust with glue.
OGURA was a special teacher who was able to see all the careful details on a doll, according to a long-time student.
"There's always a point on a doll that's very difficult and that's where she would come in and help you," said Carol DOI, 62, a 17-year student of OGURA. "It takes you back into the past of Japan."
Even with her years of experience, DOI said she wouldn't be able to teach future students the way OGURA did.
Hiroko PIGGOTT, 51, a newer student, said OGURA was patient and affectionate, but challenging.
PIGGOTT joined her classes a year ago, after she saw the Mataro dolls and wanted to buy some for her children.
OGURA told PIGGOTT it would be more meaningful if she took the time to learn and make the dolls herself.
Dolls, which must be bought in kits from Japan that cost up to $1,000, can take nearly 50 hours to complete.
"She did meticulous work," PIGGOTT said.
OGURA, who immigrated to Toronto in 1959, had been teaching the Mataro art form for more than 30 years.
For the past 23 years, she'd been living alone -- she had no children -- following the death of her husband, Hisao OGURA, but her love for people brought her to many community events.
She was a helpful volunteer at the Seicho-No-Le Church, especially when it came to preparing food.
Often during classes and events at the church, OGURA would tantalize the taste buds of others with her sweet Japanese delicacies.
Red bean cakes were the favourite of 80-year-old Kay YAMAMOTO, a long-time friend and fellow practitioner at the church.
YAMAMOTO said her friend was a renaissance woman when it came to revealing Japanese art.
In addition to creating Mataro dolls, OGURA practised Odori -- traditional Japanese dancing -- was an accomplished calligrapher and designed elegant kimonos from scratch.
"She's one of these people that doesn't walk up stairs, she runs," said DOI.
In her 70s, OGURA still went to her Tai-Chi classes nearly every morning.
OGURA had hundreds of dolls in her home, many of them stored in boxes, and DOI doesn't know what will happen to the collection.
In 2004, OGURA donated sets of court and Samurai dolls to the Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care in Scarborough.
She also provided a set to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre after a big showing of her dolls at the centre in September.
"Her displays were always special because they were shows you don't see much," said Jim URA, cultural programs co-ordinator for the cultural centre.
"She wasn't there to become famous. She just enjoyed the fact that people came and looked," added DOI.
OGURA was set to travel back to Japan at the end of the month to help celebrate her mother's 100th birthday.
A memorial service will be held today at the Seicho-No-Le Church at 622 Victoria Park Ave. at 3 p.m.

Crash claims life of young woman
Girl, 2, suffers minor injuries from collision near Bradford
Police seek pickup truck driver for more clues in accident
By Tim LAI, Staff Reporter
The crash was so loud Mike GEORGIEVSKI heard the bang a hundred metres away, over the noise from his machinery on a busy stretch of Highway 11, south of Bradford.
From there, he ran out in the rain and saw a grey Nissan Sentra that had its passenger and front side crumpled like an accordion.
With two other men yesterday morning, GEORGIEVSKI spotted a small child, still in her child seat, crying in the back on the passenger side.
She had a bit of blood splattered on her face, but no visible cuts.
Using a box cutter, one man cut the straps of the child seat, freed the 2-year-old and handed her off to a woman who wrapped the child up in a blanket. "After we picked her up, she stopped crying," said GEORGIEVSKI.
He said he believes the blood on the child came from the 20-year-old driver of the car who had ended up in the back seat due to the impact of the collision. "I could see a lot of blood from her nose and she wasn't moving. There was no reaction, there was no pulse when we checked her," said GEORGIEVSKI.
"Her head went under the child seat."
The driver was taken to Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket where she died around 11 a.m. of her injuries.
The child suffered minor injuries.
According to police, at about 10: 30 a.m. yesterday, the southbound Sentra was driving down Highway 11 when a grey pickup truck pulled out of a gas station onto the road.
To avoid hitting the truck, the Sentra swerved, lost control, and was hit by a northbound Sealtest cube van.
The driver of the van was not injured in the collision.
Police are seeking the driver of the pickup truck who may help in the investigation.
He is described as a white male between 40- and 50-years-old.
Parts of the Sentra were strewn as far as 15 metres away from the car on the highway and adjacent ditch where the cube van had ended up.
Investigators shut down the stretch of highway for several hours as they tried to piece together the collision.
Those who work and live in the area say the road is notorious for speeders, adding that police often set up radar traps around the location of where the woman crashed.
"Everybody flies down this road," said a woman who didn't want to be identified. She said the child was cared for by another woman once she was taken out of the car.
"She was asking for her mom," the woman said.
"That lady was amazing. How she held it together, I have no idea."
The impact of the collision caused a slight tremor in the area..
"I was sitting on my bed and all of a sudden, boom," said Deborah TOBIN, 45, who lives above GEORGIEVSKI's Four Star Cups Machinery Ltd. shop. "It shook my apartment."
A man who said he was the brother of the driver who was killed identified her as Crystal ORGAN.

Popular University of Toronto coach dies, 88
John McMANUS led Varsity hoops team from 1954-1983
By Tim LAI, Sports Reporter, Page E2
Even near the end of his decades-long career as the head coach of the men's basketball team at the University of Toronto, John McMANUS was in better shape than his players -- and that was in his 60s.
"We shared a locker area and many times, we'd be finishing practice and he'd be in the washroom area doing chin-ups on the handle across the stalls," laughed Doug FOX, athletic director at Humber College, who played under McMANUS from 1974 to 1979.
The fitness fanatic, who coached the Varsity Blues for 29 years between 1954 and 1983, never stopped working out, even up until his death Wednesday after his second battle with cancer in two years. McMANUS was 88.
Over his lengthy career in Toronto, McMANUS amassed a 172-152 regular season record, but coached more than 600 games in total. His only title came in 1958 when he led the squad to victory in the Wilson Cup, Ontario's championship game.
He was known at the university, not only for being the longest-serving coach -- he was also the football assistant for 24 years -- but for his physical prowess, as well. He was the definition of a gym rat, playing and coaching every sport possible. He almost became a professional baseball player, but World War 2 began. Before he started at the U of T, he coached every single team at Acadia University in Wolfville, N.S.
"Even when he was sick in the hospital, I'd walk in and there he'd be leaning on the end of his bed, on the railing, doing push-ups on it," said his daughter, Katherine McMANUS- BROWNE, who studied physical education at U of T. "Even at 88, he was still working out twice a day."
His coaching wisdom has been passed on to hundreds of players over the years.
"He helped me with my free-throw shooting," said Mike KATZ, who has been the head coach of the basketball team for the past three years and played for McMANUS between 1968-1971. "He wanted you to place your hands across the seams of the basketball. It's something that I still do with my kids today."
McMANUS's career netted him an award upon his retirement in 1983 for being "a retired coach who exemplified the highest ideals and qualities of sportsmanship and service."
Fittingly, it was the inaugural award and named after him.
There was no funeral or service, as per his wishes, but like the sign-off on his letters, he had a quick final message: "Get in shape and keep fit."

No one will talk about daylight killing
By Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporter
A wall of silence was erected at once, leaving police stumped as to who is responsible for a midday shooting in a small townhouse complex that ended the life of a 22-year-old man.
On Friday, around 12: 45 p.m., someone fired several bullets into Michael LAIDLEY inside unit 48 at 301 Washburn Way in Malvern, northwest of Sheppard and Neilson Rds.
Police found LAIDLEY dying just inside the front door. He was rushed to hospital but could not be revived.
The young man, who played basketball with the community group HOODLINC, lived in the house with his mother Lenore BARKER and two brothers. No one else was at home at the time of the slaying.
"He was shot inside the house and they (suspects) were brazen enough to not mask themselves, shoot him at one o'clock in the afternoon, then run down the driveway amongst all those people," Homicide Det. Sgt. Steve RYAN said.
An autopsy was being performed yesterday.
Despite the fact it was daytime, despite the fact there were lots of people around, including those who heard the gunshots, and despite the fact police have, in some recent cases, made progress persuading witnesses: to come forward, RYAN said this is one of those discouraging examples of people clamming up.
"I find it hard to believe that all those people are out front and not one person claims to have seen anything," said RYAN.
So far, not a single potential witness has volunteered any information.
"Two guys were seen running down the driveway -- one ran behind unit 48 and the other hopped on a bicycle and fled," he said.
"That's third-hand. Not one person has come forward," he said.
Police have no evidence to suggest the homicide is linked to gang activity.
LAIDLEY was only known to police for some minor drug possession offences. Yesterday, two police cars remained parked at the residence part of a cluster of well-maintained, attached homes -- while investigators continued to search the house for evidence.
Malvern earned a notorious reputation after a wave of gang-related violence rocked the area until 2004 when Toronto police rounded up members of two warring gangs, the Malvern Crew and Galloway Boys. After that, the number of shootings dropped drastically although there have been occasional flare-ups.

Barrie woman charged with murdering her children
Family embroiled in bitter custody battle
By Gregory BONNELL and Allison JONES / The Canadian Press
A troubled mother embroiled in a court battle over custody of her two young daughters was facing murder charges Wednesday after police discovered the girls dead in a west-end apartment.
An early-morning phone call summoned police to the apartment, where they made an emotional and grisly discovery: the bodies of a one-year-old girl and her three-year-old sister.
Also in the apartment was the mother of the victims, 31-year-old Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, who was taken to hospital for a brief examination before she was charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Residents of the building expressed shock and disbelief as they described seeing the girls playing outside; those who know their mother said the family was in the midst of a bitter custody dispute. "Nobody would help her, it seemed like," said one of the building's tenants, speaking on condition of anonymity. "She was reaching out for help and she was struggling.
She was having a hard time."
CAMPIONE, whom the neighbour said lived in shelter before recently moving into the apartment complex, was scheduled to appear in family court today on what a judge would only describe as "family matters." She's now scheduled to appear in criminal court instead.
Sharon LYNN, whose daughter lives in the building and is a good friend of CAMPIONE, said it's impossible for strangers to understand what she's been going through.
"(She) was tormented and nobody saw the signs," said LYNN. "( Imagine) you are so desperate that you actually kill your children, to take away the pain to send them to be with the Lord."
"The little girls are precious, their eyes would light up," she continued. "My little grand_son (said he) was going to marry her (oldest daughter)."
CAMPIONE called 911 at about 6: 15 a.m. Wednesday "to notify us that there were two children dead in the apartment," Barrie police Insp. Jim FARRELL said.
The sight of the bodies being removed from the building on adult-size stretchers proved emotional for one officer on the scene. "To see two young bodies being brought out definitely choked me up," said Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND.
"I can only imagine what officers and staff had to face when they saw those children… three and one, they're very innocent and it's very difficult."
Police did not release the names of the girls or how they were killed. Post-mortem examinations were expected to take place Thursday in Toronto.
Neighbours walking their dogs in the small park beside the building said they would see the girls there every day.
"Last Sunday, one little girl was out in the yard looking for a prince," said Reid, who declined to give his last name.
When asked about the mother, Reid replied: "She kept to herself."
Another neighbour, John LAINE, said he didn't know the family well but he recalled seeing the two girls playing in a park outside the apartment building.
"They were happy, go-lucky kids," he said.
The Toronto Star reported on its website that the father lives with his parents in Woodbridge, Ontario - a suburb northwest of Toronto where he lived with CAMPIONE and the two girls before their marriage fell apart.
Neighbours identified the father as Leo CAMPIONE, a hard-working, soft-spoken construction worker who loved nothing more than time with his children, the Star reported.
"He wanted to work things out for the kids, and he loved his wife, too," said neighbour Elisa RIZZO, a grandmother who watched Leo CAMPIONE grow up on the street, fall in love, then suffer through marital breakdown.
"He's a very good guy," "she told the Star. "Always kept his nose clean. Very respectful."
