Pearl PALMASON, Musician (1915-2006)
Daughter of Icelandic immigrants took childhood lessons from her brother, Sandra MARTIN writes. Later, she broke gender barriers to become one of Canada's first female solo violinists and a Toronto Symphony Orchestra concertmaster
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S7
This is a story about two women and a violin. In 2003, Judy KANG needed an instrument worthy of her prodigious talents. Pearl PALMASON, a trailblazing musician who broke gender barriers at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra back in the 1940s, could no longer play her precious 1747 Gagliano violin to her own demanding standards. She agreed to lend it to the Canada Council so that younger fingers could make it sing.
"I've always wanted a warm, dark, deep quality in a violin," Ms. KANG, 26, said this week. She loved the sound of the Gagliano and the way it made her feel when she was playing it. "It made me think I could really push my limits."
Ms. PALMASON went to the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto to hear Ms. KANG play during a competition and to watch the bow being passed from one dedicated player to another. But Ms. KANG was far from the only female musician to be touched by Ms. PALMASON through her long career as a violinist.
"I saw her when I was seven years old at Maple Leaf Gardens at a concert with Fritz Kreisel as the soloist," said violinist Andrea HANSEN. "I couldn't take my eyes off this redhead -- this beautiful regal person -- sitting there in a flowing black gown playing the violin with the Toronto Symphony. I was just smitten."
It was 1947 and Ms. HANSEN, who had already been playing the violin for four years, knew what she wanted to do for a career. Nearly 30 years later, the two women became neighbours, Friends and colleagues in the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. "We were the only two Scandinavian ones in the orchestra," said Ms. HANSEN who is of Finnish descent. "I was even more in awe then because of the kind of person she was. She opened the door for the rest of us."
Pearl PALMASON was born during the First World War in Winnipeg. She was the third of four children of Icelandic immigrants Sveinn and Growa PALMASON (née SVEINNSDOTTIR.) Her architect father prospered in construction, but the Depression wiped him out financially and the family moved to a farm.
No matter how stretched they were, the PALMASONs always found money for violin lessons for their eldest son Palmi, who was six years older than Pearl. He studied with the violin builder and teacher Olafur Thorsteinsson in Husavick, Manitoba, and then with John Waterhouse in Winnipeg before becoming a member of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
Palmi would walk five miles home from his lessons and then teach everything he had learned to his little sister Pearl. From the time she was nine years old, she was officially her brother's student, acquiring both her Associate, Toronto Conservatory of Music and Licentiate, Royal Schools of Music qualifications and winning four medals from the Toronto Conservatory of Music for having the highest examination marks in the country.
They both performed at the Manitoba Music Competition Festival in Winnipeg and played with what would later be called the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
"My uncle Palmi would perform very respectably and get high marks, but never win, and Pearl always won in her class, and she would win overall," said her niece Valerie THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. She was awarded both the Rose Bowl and an Aikens Memorial Trophy and won a scholarship at age 18 to study for three years with Elie SPIVAK, concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and a teacher at the Royal Conservatory of Music.
In the late 1930s she went to England to study with Carl Flesch, the Hungarian-born violinist and also played solo concerts in Iceland in 1938 and in London. Years later she described Mr. Flesch as "a genius with the violin but not in his practical life." She also complained that he "had pupils from all over the world and he wiped the floor with every one of them."
She returned to Toronto when the Second World War broke out and studied briefly with Kathleen PARLOW, before moving to New York to be instructed by Demetrious Dounis. She found him secretive and mysterious. "You went in one door and out through another," she remembered. Apparently, concert masters studied privately with him and didn't want anybody to know so "it was very hush-hush."
In 1941, she left New York and joined the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at $25 a week for a five-month season. "The burning question," she said later, "was how to survive the other seven months of the year and pay the rent." Even so, she managed to find the money to buy a violin made in 1666, that had previously been owned by violinist Alexander Chuhaldin, and was thought (incorrectly) to be a Stradivarius.
Ms. PALMASON was married in the 1940s, after she joined the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and supported her husband who lived in New York and studied with her former teacher, Dr. Dounis. By all accounts, the marriage was disastrous and quickly ended. On September 19, 1948, she performed a solo recital at the Town Hall in New York. "A metropolitan debut of promise," concluded the Musical Courier.
She considered pursuing a career as a concert violinist, but decided against it, partly because, as she said later, "you have to be absolutely great to be a concert performer and I knew I wasn't." There was another reason: the loneliness of the long-distance concert circuit. "I wouldn't have all this -- my home, my possessions and my Friends around me."
Essentially, Ms. PALMASON chose career over marriage in an era when it was extremely difficult to have both. "In those days, what happened to women violin soloists was that they got married and had children. Their career was put on hold for a while and then they tried to make a comeback, but it was never the same," she said in an interview in the 1950s.
Instead, she built a life around music, travel, a huge circle of Friends and her sister Ruby's children. "When my mother died, Pearl made the announcement that she now had three children," said her niece Valerie THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. "We were all past the age of majority, but she said she was adopting us."
By the mid 1950s, she was one of eight women playing with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and was the first female to serve as assistant concert master and to slip into the senior role when her male colleague Hyman GOODMAN was unavailable. From 1960 to 1962, she played principal second violin. She also played with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Symphony (after having confronted the conductor about his male-only hiring policy), the Singing Stars Orchestra, the Hart House Orchestra and the York Concert Society group.
An article by Florence SCHILL in The Globe and Mail in October of 1954, under the tag "Earning a Living," focused on Ms. PALMASON. The column began by quoting Sir Thomas Beecham (1879-1961). Apparently, the famous British conductor liked to explain the paucity of women in his orchestra by saying: "If they're pretty, they bother the men; if they aren't, they bother me."
Jack ELTON, manager of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, denied there was discrimination against women. "We have never said: Let's not take her because she's a woman -- especially if they look like Pearl." And she was definitely a looker, with flaming red hair, usually called Titian in newspaper clippings from the era, striking blue eyes and luscious red lips.
In 1960, she bought the Gennaro Gagliano violin with the rich velvet sound for $3,500 (U.S.) -- about the price of a new car at the time, according to violin-maker and restorer Ric HEINL of the Toronto firm George Heinl and Co. It was made in Naples, Italy, in 1747 by Gennaro Gagliano, who was arguably the best in a large family of expert violin-makers.
A salesman for the Rembrandt Wurlitzer company in New York brought the violin to Toronto to show to a potential client, who declined to purchase it. Ms. PALMASON fell in love with it "at first play" and insisted the instrument wasn't going back, according to Mr. HEINL. The violin is now insured for $220,000.
After her farewell concert in front of 10,000 people at Ontario Place in August of 1981, she told The Globe that she had "spent more of my life at Massey Hall than at home." Although she had reached retirement age, she had no intention of putting her violin away. She played with the Canadian Opera Company orchestra from 1981 to 1985, and continued to teach privately, play with chamber groups, give recitals with her string group. In 1987 she became concertmaster of the Oakville Symphony Orchestra.
Ms. PALMASON lived in a spacious home in North Toronto until the mid-to-late 1990s when she moved into a large retirement condominium with her Boesendorfer piano and her beloved violins. She continued to have "drinkie winkies" (Beefeater gin with a splash of tonic and one ice cube) with Friends and gave at least two concerts in her condo for her neighbours.
She practised every day, but after she broke her ankle in 2002, life became harder. After she agreed to lend her Gagliano to the Canada Council instrument bank, she played every day on her "second" violin. A year ago in January, Ms. KANG, who had been sending Ms. PALMASON letters regularly, paid the woman she calls "her angel" a visit. "She was very warm and very sweet," Ms. KANG said. "It was really moving to see her playing the violin," she said, and "inspiring to see somebody who loves music so much that she plays every day just to have it in her life."
Pearl PALMASON was born on October 2, 1915, in Winnipeg. She died in Toronto of heart failure on February 17, 2006, after having suffered a stroke in September. She was 90. She is survived by a niece, two nephews and their families.

Storm topples tree on woman
By Jennifer O'BRIEN and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Fri., October 13, 2006
Filomena PALMEIRI shelters herself with a blanket from a howling snow squall yesterday. She was watching her son's football team from Mother Teresa high school battling the Saint Thomas Aquinas high school team at Aquinas's field in London. (Dave CHIDLEY, The London Free Press)
Yesterday's unexpected snowsqualls and wind gusts broke a large tree that fell on and seriously injured an elderly woman.
It was just one of many calls paramedics faced yesterday because of slick roads and weather-related injuries.
The elderly woman was walking along Central Avenue near Wellington Street when the tree fell.
"She sustained extensive internal injuries," said Middlesex-London Emergency Medical Services duty manager Chris DARBY.
"She was not trapped under the tree, but she was under a branch. Paramedics were able to immobilize her and treat her before transporting her" to hospital.
The woman was simply "in the wrong place at the wrong time," DARBY said.
Accidents occurred throughout the day, including one at Adelaide and Oxford streets, where a vehicle crashed into a former bank building, DARBY said.
The injuries in that crash were not serious.
A car crash southeast of London that claimed the life of a 27-year-old Langton woman also was blamed on slick and snow-covered roads.
Norfolk County Ontario Provincial Police said the driver of a minivan that slid into oncoming traffic on Concession Road 2 in the former Houghton Township near Tillsonburg died from her injuries.
Jaclyn SZALKAI, 27, of Langton, was pronounced dead in a Tillsonburg hospital after the 2 p.m. crash. Ontario Provincial Police said snow and slush-covered roads contributed to the crash.
Another crash south of London sent a minivan driver to hospital with minor injuries. The driver in that crash T-boned a dump truck, which slid into the opposite lane of traffic.
The truck driver steered his vehicle back into the southbound lane of Highbury Avenue near Westminster Drive and wasn't injured. He was on his way home because he'd been told Highway 401 was too slick to work on.
The fall blast of snow caused havoc elsewhere in London yesterday.
Blinded by the snow, University of Western Ontario students, many in T-shirts, raced for the nearest cover.
The first squall dismayed students taking part in a Bike for A.I.D.S. bike-athon outside Western's University Community Centre.
"Oh no, this was not supposed to happen," groaned organizer Samantha ROBERTSON, holding an arm over her face to block the wind as balloons danced behind her and jugs holding donations tipped over.
"What the hell is going on?" shrieked a woman, head down as she plowed through a white wall of snow.
"Um, Okay folks, we are just going to break for a few minutes here and reassess the situation," announced the lead singer of a band that had been playing on a stage.
While organizers did so, students ran in all directions, often bumping into one another in the scramble.
But not even wintry weather could break the spirit of the 150 people participating in the bike-athon, designed to raise money to buy bikes for workers with African A.I.D.S. agencies.
"Well, I guess it's a tradition," Jackie STRECKER said. "The first year we ran it in April and it snowed, so this year we moved it to October, and look at this."
Though the snow may have come as a surprise to most people, it isn't really out of the ordinary, an Environment Canada meteorologist said.
"This time of year, the air masses travel across the Great Lakes…. You're warm, then the next day you're cold. That's the way it goes," Andre Cyr said.
Yesterday's snowsqualls came to southern Ontario after crossing Lake Michigan and tossed about one centimetre of snow onto London.
That's far from the record, said Cyr, citing a 6.8-centimetre dump on October 12, 1988.
Flurries are expected to return tonight when the low dips to -2°C. Highs for the next few days will be in the high single digits, well below the normal high for this time of year of 14.9°C.
Analynda MIELKE and Bill CHERNIAK of University of Western Ontario's Triathlon Club were at the bottom of a hill when the snow hit.
"It was really, really intense," said MIELKE, her face wet.
Though wacky weather may have cut into on-site donations for the event, organizers of the bikeathon still hoped to reach their $10,000 goal, STRECKER said. Each of 14 teams paid $200 to take part and a charity party was planned for last night.
Last year the event raised $7,500, which bought about 32 bikes to be sent to A.I.D.S. workers in Africa.

In loving memory of a dear wife and mother, Elva, who passed away three years ago, February 11th, 2003.
Though her smile is gone forever
And her hand we cannot touch,
Still we have so many memories
Of the one we loved so much.

With which we'll never part
God has her in his keeping,
We have her in our hearts.
There is a link death cannot sever.
Love and remembrance lasts forever.

CLARK, Eula Johanna (formerly HOBBIN, née TAIT/TAITE/TATE)
Of Norwich, Ontario, at People Care, Tavistock on Thursday June 15, 2006, after a brief illness. Eula was in her 99th year and was born on the family farm at South Walsingham, Ontario on March 15, 1908. She is survived by her loving daughter Joan (HOBBIN) BISHOP and husband Robert of Woodstock; her dear granddaughter Pamela (BISHOP) CHRISTIE and husband Peter of London; and her cherished and loving great granddaughter Erin JOHNSON and husband David of London, England. Also survived by nephews Jim MERCHANT (Zora) of Sherwood Park, Alberta; Larry TAIT/TAITE/TATE (Lynn) of Woodstock; Brennan TAIT/TAITE/TATE of Beachville; niece Marion ANDERSON of Edmonton, Alberta, as well as several great nieces and nephews. Eula was predeceased by her dearly loved parents Henry and Ellena (McCALL) TAIT/TAITE/TATE, an infant son Raymond Peter HOBBIN, husbands Peter HOBBIN and Stanley CLARK, sisters Blanche PALMER (Stewart), Orpha WESTFALL (John), Viola MERCHANT (Tom,) brother Morley TAIT/TAITE/TATE (May,) and several nieces and nephews. In approximately 1918, the family moved to Norwich and the five children of Henry and Ellena grew up at the Norwich Gore, attending the Gore Public School and the Gore United Church. Our Mother and Grandmother was active in the community and enjoyed being a member of the Norwich Historical Society and the Norwich United Church. Her other pursuits included decorating and quilting and in particular painting which she continued to do into her late nineties. She was extremely proud of and took an avid interest in our United Empire Loyalist ancestors (the McCalls of Norfolk County) and passed on a great deal of family history. Eula enjoyed life and was always happy, healthy and content. She was kind, generous and blessed with a wonderful sense of humour. Eula was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. The family feels blessed to have had her in our lives for so many years and we are so grateful for her love. Thank you Grandma.

PALMER, Doctor John Dickinson
Much loved husband of Diana, father of Susan, Heather, John, Diana, and Ann, and grandfather to Diana, Ian, John, Matthew, Jess, Madelaine, Katie, and Jane, died aged 89 on 17 April, 2006 after a notable career in medicine and active retirement on Salt Spring Island, including a period on the board of Greenwoods elderly care facility (where, fittingly, he passed away). John, a specialist in cancer care, was a distinguished surgeon at Montreal General Hospital from the 1950s until his retirement. He also taught at McGill University, and was at one time team physician for the Montreal Canadians. Outside medicine, he was a lifelong learner, always immersed in a new book; a surprisingly talented painter and accordion player; a keen outdoorsman; and of course a sportsman, into tennis, golf, and in his early days, hockey. John was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, son of John Dickinson PALMER, a noted shoe manufacturer (Hart,) and Florence (Bappy) JARDINE, of the Jardine shipping family. After Fredericton High School, he completed an arts degree at University of New Brunswick before studying medicine at McGill University, where he also found time to play hockey for the McGill Redmen. His medical career path was interrupted by the 2nd World War, in which he served as a medical officer in the Canadian Navy before being seconded to the British Navy. It was on shore leave at Esquimault, Victoria, that he met Diana HETT, a British Columbia rancher's daughter, and so began a romance that was to last over 60 years. John and Diana moved to Salt Spring Island permanently in 1986. Typically, in retirement John was a well known figure in the island's tennis, golf, and bridge communities. The family would like to express their heart-felt thanks to the extraordinary care and kindness of the staff at Greenwoods during John's final illness. For those who wish to remember John, donations to Greenwoods Elder Care Society, 133 Blain Road, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, V8K 1Z9, would be gratefully appreciated.

Helen ALLEN, Journalist (1907-2006)
She laboured for decades to improve the lot of unwanted children, many of whom were better off because of her efforts, writes Sandra MARTIN. At the end of the Vietnam War she also helped rescue orphans in Saigon
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
The concept may seem bizarre today, but in its era, the Toronto newspaper column Today's Child was an innovative force intended to improve the lives of thousands of emotionally needy and often physically damaged children. In the early 1960s, back in the days when having a child "out of wedlock" was socially unacceptable and before reliable contraception or abortions were generally available, many young women gave their unplanned babies up for adoption. The ranks of healthy infants were swelled by older children who had been abandoned by parents unable or unwilling to raise their own offspring or who had been removed from dangerous situations. Many of these "hard-to-place" children trundled from one foster home to another or marked birthday after birthday in orphanages and other residential institutions.
Helen ALLEN, a journalist who became a crusader for adoption, believed that all children deserved parents and a home to call their own. For nearly 20 years, she devoted her energies to the task through her column Today's Child in The Telegram in Toronto and the long-running television program Family Finder. Although, nobody knows for certain how many of these adoptions were successful, there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that many, many children were happier and healthier because of Ms. ALLEN's actions.
"Some social workers were very reluctant at the thought of exposing children to the public in this way, because it was an invasion of privacy, but I was all for it," recalled Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, a former social worker and adoption supervisor who knew first-hand the dire circumstances of these children's lives. She and Ms. ALLEN became colleagues and good Friends, sharing the same dedication and sense of humour.
The late media mogul John BASSETT, who was the last publisher of The Telegram, considered Ms. ALLEN's long-running adoption column "her real life's work." Ms. ALLEN "has helped this country enormously by giving new hope and new opportunities to the nation's richest resource, our children," he wrote in a tribute to her in 1982, and "nothing has given me greater pride than being associated with her in this task."
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born near Saskatoon, the only child of a Presbyterian minister and a school teacher. The family eventually settled in Aurora, north of Toronto, as her father moved from one congregation to another. He died of meningitis when Helen was five and her mother worked as a supply teacher to support them both. Ms. ALLEN later described her childhood as happy, although she regretted that there was never enough money to buy her a bicycle. It was only much later that she looked back as an adult and realized that "it's too bad to be an only child, too bad not to have a Dad."
After graduating from high school in 1925, Ms. ALLEN moved to Toronto to do a four-year degree in modern languages (French and German) at University College at the University of Toronto. By then, her widowed mother had married a man named PALMER, so Ms. ALLEN boarded with a family named GRIFFITHS while she attended university, financed with $2000 from her mother's savings. That's how she met the GRIFFITHS' daughter, Phyllis, who became a classmate, then a journalism colleague and a dear friend and housemate until she died more than 50 years later in 1978.
At U of T, Ms. ALLEN joined the German club, which turned out to be a lively collection of people, including professors Geoffrey HOLT and Barker FAIRLEY, who got together on a weekly basis to sing German songs. An older cousin, who worked on the student newspaper, The Varsity, introduced Ms. ALLEN to the editor, a young man named Charles STACEY. (A year older, he was destined for a stellar career as a military historian and became very well known as a biographer of Prime Minister Mackenzie King.) "Somehow I found myself accepting an assignment to cover a freshie tea that first week. It showed up on the front page, without a word changed, and I was hooked," she presciently told Judith ADAM/ADAMS, the author of the 1982 Ontario government publication, Today's Child and Helen ALLEN.
After graduating in 1929, Ms. ALLEN went to work as a reporter for The Telegram, a newspaper founded in 1876 by John Ross ROBERTSON as a vehicle to promote British and Imperial sentiments. For the next three decades, Ms. ALLEN did general assignment reporting, reviewed movies, covered political events and criminal trials, and edited the women's pages. In covering the 1939 Royal Tour of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth she wrote: "Everyone who has seen her is talking about the Queen. The Queen's smile. The Queen's charm. The Queen's beauty. The Queen's lovely gowns."
What made her name, however, was an assignment that she took on reluctantly in 1964 to write an adoption column for the paper. Instead of being the brainchild of one person, the idea came about as a confluence of incidents, experience and inspiration dating back to the early 1960s when The Telegram ran a front-page story about a young boy being publicly beaten by his father on a downtown street corner. Publisher John BASSETT assigned reporter Andrew MacFARLANE to investigate and write an article on child abuse.
Mr. MacFARLANE contacted the office of Doctor James BAND, the deputy minister of welfare in Ontario, who supplied huge amounts of information on child protection services and took Mr. MacFARLANE to visit an orphanage which housed dozens of children three years of age and under. Mr. MacFARLANE quickly realized that many of these children had short attention spans, played aggressively, and, despite being "cuddled" by volunteers, appeared lacking in warmth and curiosity. Both men believed these children needed families and permanent homes, if they were to have any chance of growing up emotionally healthy.
In 1964, Doctor BAND sought out Mr. MacFARLANE, who by then was The Telegram's managing editor, and suggested he run an "advertising" feature to make the public aware of the plight of these forgotten children. Both Mr. MacFARLANE and Mr. BASSETT took up the idea enthusiastically and assigned the column to Ms. ALLEN, telling her to contact the more than 50 regional Children's Aid Societies that operated in Ontario under the Child Welfare Act, find some children who were waiting for families, and run their pictures and write about them in the paper. The plan was to run Today's Child for a few weeks and check the response.
Children's Aid Societies, which are protective by definition, were largely horrified at the idea of parading children, along with their physical and emotional problems, in a public newspaper. To them, the column reeked of "freak shows" at carnivals. Only three were willing to participate -- Hamilton, Kenora and Toronto. Although disappointing, the response was strong enough to give Ms. ALLEN enough children to produce a daily column for three weeks.
The first child was a 15-month-old girl of mixed race named Hope, a difficult placement in those homogeneous days before the immigration rules relaxed and Canada had an official multiculturalism policy. Nevertheless, 40 prospective adoptive parents wrote in response to the story about Hope. Their letters were passed along to the Children's Aid Society for screening, assessing and processing. "I wrote abut 23 children in those first Today's Child columns that summer," Ms. ALLEN recalled years later, "and when the results were finally assessed, 18 of those youngsters found homes."
After three years of daily columns, Today's Child expanded to other daily and weekly papers throughout Ontario. The following year, Ms. ALLEN proposed doing a television version of the column based on the daily Ben Hunter Program in California, which delivered commercials for a variety of products, saving one day a week for children wanting to be adopted. Armed with a tape of the American show, Ms. ALLEN and Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, then Ontario Adoption Co-ordinator, approached CFTO, the Toronto television station that was part-owned by Mr. BASSETT. "It took them all of 15 minutes to make up their minds," Ms. ALLEN reported later. Family Finder, which ran commercial-free, debuted in the fall of 1968 and for years was the longest-running program on the channel.
When The Telegram folded in 1971, the Ontario government hired Ms. ALLEN as an information officer in the Ministry of Community and Social Services. She continued to write the column three times a week (which was syndicated by the government to more than 20 daily newspapers including The Toronto Star), do the television program and speak about adoption to community and service groups.
In the early 1970s, television and newspaper reporting from Vietnam publicized the plight of many of the children who had become victims of the continuing conflict. The orphanages in Saigon were overflowing with abandoned or parentless children. Social changes, including a declining birth rate, had put an end to the baby surplus of a decade before. That fact, plus the human desire to help needy children, had lots of North Americans flying to Vietnam and trying to pick up babies in exchange for cash or services.
The local adoption agencies were floundering, so the Ontario Ministry of Social and Community Services sent Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH and Ms. ALLEN to Saigon to work with the Vietnamese. As the Viet Cong advanced and the Americans pulled out, the two women rescued close to 60 children, brought them to Canada and found homes for them. "The deputy minister told me, 'if we are going to do this, we will give it the same service we give our own children,' Ms. LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH said.
Ms. ALLEN received many honours, including being named to the Order of Canada and an honorary doctorate from York University and the Award of Merit from the City of Toronto. In the late 1970s, she was at an Order of Canada reception when she encountered fellow laureate and University of Toronto military historian Charles STACEY. " When I was at college, I dated Charles, who was then editor of the Varsity. He was in fourth year and I was in second," she told Ms. ADAM/ADAMS. "He went off to Oxford and then Princeton; I went on to the Tely as a reporter."
Ms. ALLEN and Colonel STACEY, a widower, renewed their Friendship and their affection for each other and were married in a small wedding at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Toronto on October 3, 1980. The bride was 73, and the groom 74. A little more than a year later, she officially retired from Today's Child (Judith ADAM/ADAMS took over the column for another seven years) and Family Finder, but continued to spend two days a week answering mail and writing Adoption Bulletins while her husband wrote his books.
The STACEYs were a very companionable couple. They loved to entertain at small dinner parties at Massey College, to read Jane Austen novels aloud to each other and to travel. Col. STACEY died suddenly of a heart attack in November of 1989, after nearly a decade of marriage. She continued to live in their Rosedale apartment until she suffered a heart attack and a fall late in 2002, and moved into the Leaside Retirement Residence.
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born in Dundurn, Saskatchewan., on August 16, 1907. She died in Toronto of congestive heart failure on November 9. She was 99. Predeceased by her husband Charles STACEY and by her dear friend Phyllis GRIFFITHS, she is survived by her god-daughter Nadine BELL and her family.
