Artist known for dog paintings
By Ryan CUREATZ, Free Press Reporter, Mon., July 10, 2006
London artist Catherine (Kit) AZIZ linked her love of art and animals to paint the pooches of world leaders.
Her pastel portraits of Canadian wartime prime minister Mackenzie King's beloved Irish terrier, Pat I, and of U.S. wartime president Franklin D. Roosevelt's Scottish terrier, Fala, earned AZIZ acclaim at an early age, her niece said.
"She wanted a dog so badly when she was a child," Susan MASCIOTRA said.
"She started painting pictures of them."
Born in Saint Thomas, AZIZ lived in London most of her life before she died June 22 of cancer at 89, MASCIOTRA said.
AZIZ was a commercial artist who met with King in 1948 in Ottawa to give the prime minister a painting of his pooch, the first of three terriers he owned -- all named Pat -- and about whom he wrote in his diary almost every day the dog lived.
King, a devotee of the spiritual world, who held seances to contact the dead, including his mother, to confirm his instincts, once wrote that he believed Pat had been sent by his mother to offer him peace and comfort.
On the same trip AZIZ made to Ottawa to meet King, she gave a painting of Muldoon the Second, a Great Dane, to its owners -- Lord Alexander of Tunis, Canada's governor-general at the time, and his wife Lady Margaret.
"They loved their pets and (AZIZ) was aware of that," MASCIOTRA said. "She just presented herself to these people with the utmost grace."
When AZIZ handed Roosevelt's widow, Eleanor, the portrait of Fala at F.D.R.'s memorial library in Hyde Park, New York the same year, Fala licked the artist's hand.
"There were a lot of admirers of her work," MASCIOTRA said.
In other portraits of celebrity dogs, AZIZ depicted a border collie used by the U.S. army's K-9 Corps to send messages during the Second World War.
A German shepherd that worked as a seeing-eye dog and a perennial dog-show champion, the Great Dane Rudiki, were also captured in AZIZ's lifelike works crafted from photographs.
"She was just an incredible person who enjoyed all aspects of the visual arts," said her cousin, Philip AZIZ, also a prominent London artist.
Catherine AZIZ loved the opera and enjoyed dancing her fingers along piano and organ keys, MASCIOTRA said.
"(She was) just a fun-loving person when she socialized."
AZIZ once confessed she'd like to have a Kerry Blue terrier.
But her quiet, private life came with no children or dogs of her own, MASCIOTRA said.
"I don't want to become merely an imitator of someone who is recognized as a great artist," AZIZ told The Free Press 60 years ago.
"I want to be original, if I can, and I can achieve originality, I feel, only by working by myself."

Know that we love you,
And still do today,
Know how much we miss you,
And in our hearts you will stay,
They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Helps the emptiness we feel,
Each morning when we wake,
We know that you are gone,
No one knows the heartache,
As we try to carry on,
The special years will not return,
When we were all together,
But like the love within our hearts
You will be part of us forever.
Remembered with love and sadly missed by husband Bill, children, Eileen, Waverly, Jackie and Cori, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

MORRISON, Hugh Whitney, B.A. (Alta,) B.A. (Hons) M.A. (Oxon)
Peacefully, in his 99th year, May 23, 2006, at the Aurora Retirement Centre, Aurora, Ontario. Hugh had an extraordinary and very full life. Born May 15, 1908 in Vegreville, Alberta, he earned his B.A. (Hons.) (language and literature) at the University of Alberta, Edmonton and was named a Rhodes Scholar in 1930. At his Oxford College, Merton, he read literature and political theory from 1930 to 1932, with post-graduate studies in 1933. After serving as a reporter at the Toronto Star and editor of the Star Weekly from 1934 to 1937, Hugh was appointed the first Director of Talks and Public Affairs at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, serving in Ottawa and Toronto from 1937 to 1943. Thereafter, he worked as Assistant to the President of a Central and South American airline out of New York until 1947. While in that position, he was recruited to assist 'Intrepid', Canada's spy master Sir William STEPHENSON, by reporting wartime activities of German agents in Central and South America. (In Hugh's library is a copy of A Man Called Intrepid by Stephenson dedicated 'To Hugh, my comrade in arms'.) From 1946 to 1948 he was a partner in a public relations firm in New York. Then he rejoined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in its 'Overseas ShortWave Broadcasting Service' in Montreal as its first Director for Latin America. He returned to Toronto in 1952 as the first Director of Public Relations for the United Way, serving until 1972. On retirement, he developed a diploma course in Public Relations at Humber College and taught there until 1983. Always a keen scholar of English literature, particularly Shakespeare, Hugh wrote Shakespeare, his Daughters and his Tempest, published in 1963. He also wrote Oxford Today and the Canadian Rhodes Scholarships, published in 1958. Hugh was the oldest surviving Canadian Rhodes Scholar. Unfortunately, his autobiography remains unfinished. While at Oxford Hugh played hockey for the Spengler (European) Cup-winning Oxford teams in 1931 and 1932. Recently, he was invited to Oxford for a reunion of Oxford hockey teams and presented with a replica of his playing jersey. Hugh outlived three wives (Florentine St. Clair SHERMAN, Patricia LeMoine FITZGERALD, daughter of the artist, and Marita LAFLÈCHE) and one companion, Mary-Lucile Getchell FRENCH, called 'Ceeley', with whom he was reunited after an interval of 62 years they had met while he was at Oxford and she was in Paris on her 'junior year abroad' from Smith College. Hugh is survived by his loving granddaughter Elizabeth St. Clair Morrison FIELD (Adam CHRISTIAN) of Buffalo, N.Y. daughter of his only child, Hugh., Peter St. Clair who died in 1998, and his nephew Hugh John BOLTON of Edmonton. Hugh's extensive library was donated in lots over many years to the University of Alberta and his Oxford College, with assistance from his long-time friend, book dealer David MASON of Toronto. His extensive Shakespearean studies collection was gratefully accepted in 2004 by doctoral candidates in the University of Toronto's English Department. His extensive memorabilia, including transcripts of wartime and other Canadian Broadcasting Corporation shows Hugh produced, has been gratefully accepted by Library and Archives Canada (finding aid No. 2283). For more on Hugh's career, his publications and honours received, see the entry in the 2006 Whose Who in Canada. A memorial service will be held at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W. (2 stoplights west of Yonge St.), Toronto on Sunday, May 28, 2006 at 11: 00 a.m., reception following there. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation in his name would be appreciated.

COWLEY, George
By Clyde SANGER, Page A24
Husband, father, diplomat, adventurer, music lover, man of faith, raconteur. Born July 13, 1930, in Ottawa. Died February 5, of Lewy body dementia, aged 75.
Most good story-tellers yield to the temptation to embellish their tales with a touch of fantasy. George COWLEY rarely had that need. His life, both as youthful traveller and in his 33 years as a foreign-service officer, was too full of adventure and kindly fun (and too hilarious) to require embroidery.
It didn't start that way. Born in Ottawa, he trailed across Canada to different schools as his pilot father rose to the heights of air vice-marshal. At 18, he landed at McGill and completed honours studies in political science. Then he escaped to explore life on his own, going first to the Sorbonne and then to London.
At 24, he answered an ad in The Times to sell advertising space for Owen's Pan-African and Middle East Directory and, his being the only reply, became its chief (and only) representative in those regions. With a small suitcase he lived hand-to-mouth for three years visiting a total of 52 countries in dangerous times civil war in Algeria, Mau Mau in Kenya, turmoil in Iran -- and ended up in Japan. In South Africa, he undertook to smuggle out an uncut pink diamond for someone who then failed to claim it. Years later George had it cut for an engagement ring.
He survived on his charm and by pawning his typewriter, and on the kindness of British diplomats (Canadians weren't yet in Africa). In turn, as a diplomat, he paid back this kindness to countless travellers.
Back in Victoria he dug ditches (his mother boasted to Friends of his "major engineering project"). Luck smiled, External Affairs beckoned and posted him back to Japan. In 1963 he was sent to Cuba, in the wake of the missile crisis. A junior diplomat, he was caught photographing military sites and expelled by Castro.
His next three years, as an attaché to Governor-General Georges Vanier, were the most spiritually enriching of his life. He also met and married Deborah MASON, back from United Nations Relief and Works Agency in Beirut, choosing (of course) St. George's Day to wed.
After Vanier's death, he collaborated with his son, Jean Vanier, to document the Governor-General's spiritual beliefs. Of many postings -- Washington, London, Brussels -- the most memorable was to Cairo 1971-74. For a guidebook Deb had been commissioned to write, he set out to map the city by jogging each morning through a different neighbourhood, noting all the Arabic street names for translation. He even photographed Cairo from a small plane, highly risky in tense times.
Never ambitious to be an ambassador, he often pushed the boundaries of diplomacy. When two Canadian oil workers were taken hostage in southern Sudan, he took it on himself to walk miles to a meeting place and negotiate their release. In London, defending the seal hunt to a group protesting in Trafalgar Square, he won them over with the offer of pizza.
On his retirement in 1991 he had a calling card printed that read "George COWLEY, Clochard" (tramp, loafer.) Despite it, he enrolled in a PhD program, taught political science in France and, with Deb, walked the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela.
Stories of his kindness are legion: to a young woman in a Cairo hospital, to a Japanese baby, and to the neighbourhood as a soccer coach when their sons Christopher and Geoffrey were young.
When he died in February, another Ottawa lawyer Wendy BRYANS said: "George really has left a warmth on Earth -- the George who always said, when I asked how he was: 'All the better for seeing you.' And we are all the better for knowing him."
Clyde SANGER is a family friend.

PITHER, William Garth (March 6, 1921-September 8, 2006)
A pioneer in the Cable television industry, Garth passed away peacefully on September 8, 2006 in Vancouver. Predeceased by his adoring wife Dorothy, he is survived by sons Ron, Barry, and Gordon; grand_sons Colin and Lane; daughter-in-law Deborah BROADLEY; sister Beth (Charles;) nephew Gerry EDWARDS, and nieces Linda MASON, Sharon FARNETTI, and Heather PICCO. Garth's 'family' was bigger than most, as his reach, influence, and genuine interest always extended in the most caring of ways beyond the conventional his sense of community and contribution were hallmarks of his life. Garth's watchwords were 'Perseverance', 'Why not?', and 'Never dismiss anyone or anything'. Born in Winnipeg and growing up in Saskatchewan and Vancouver, Garth began an electrical apprenticeship at RCA in Toronto during 1938. In 1940 he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and was seconded to the Royal Air Force where his technical brilliance was applied to the then secret U.K.-based radar initiative. Returning to Canada in 1945 he rejoined RCA and married Dorothy LOVELL in 1946. A chance television repair job for Syd WELSH lead to a three way partnership with Bud SHEPARD in the early fifties pioneering Cable television in Canada. His technical knowledge and skills were employed in wiring the mountain communities of British Columbia, including antenna sites surveyed on foot, by packhorse, boat, jeep, helicopter, and snowmobile. By the 1960s, this visionary trio, and others too many to mention, brought Cable television to the major urban centres of Canada and around the world including the U.S.A., Ireland, and the United Kingdom, garnering the respect of governments and business partners such as CBS. In 1971 the Welsh companies formed Premier Cablevision Limited which was eventually purchased by Rogers Cable of Toronto. Garth's 'retirement' in 1981 was hardly ever that(!) as he offered his skills, enthusiasm, and insight to support Rick Hansen's dream to wheel around the world and such organizations as the British Columbia and Canadian Paraplegic Associations, Vancouver Rotary and finally the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club. Golf both in Vancouver and Palm Springs was always in the 'fore'. Always busy, always involved, always offering, always there… Garth was always 'doing something' and led by example to create and fix things rather than just offer words. A private Celebration of Garth's life will be held amongst his dear family and Friends. The family thanks the volunteers and members of the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club and other stroke support services in Vancouver for enabling Garth to maintain his independence since his wn stroke in 1996. Moreover, we give honourable mention to the staff at Vancouver General Hospital, University of British Columbia Health Sciences and Providence Health Care, in particular staff at the Brock Fahrni facility for the wonderful care and attention Garth received over the past year. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to one of Garth's proudest and greatest achievements, the British Columbia Paraplegic Foundation (780…S.W. Marine Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia V6P 5Y7) of which he was a founding visionary over 30 years ago.

KELLY, Dr. Norman Henry, M.D.
(September 17, 1921-January 8, 2006)
"Love between two children of God outlives the union, outlives failing bodies, outlives the earth itself. Love, in whatever celestial form it takes in heaven, lives on after the earthly shell has passed into dust. For the one who believes, death changes "goodbye" into other more hopeful words. I will see you soon my love. I cannot bring you back to me, but I can come to you. And I will." And he has. Norman KELLY died peacefully at home to join his beloved wife, Helen, of 60 years in the fourth mansion on the right just inside the Pearly Gates.
