KNOX, James Edward Massey -- Dispatch:
By Alexandra SHIMO, Page M4
James Edward Massey KNOX's silver tongue brought success in his many careers, but occasionally it landed him in hot water.
"My dad told me he and my mum met because they worked together in World War 2 -- he as a fighter pilot, and she as his bomber guide," said Christine PICARD, his daughter. "The truth was a bit less glamorous -- they met on a blind date. I believed that story for 20 years, and even told all my Friends."
At 17, he was one of the Canadian boys chosen to play cricket at the Berlin Olympic Games in an exhibition match. Disturbed by the tight security, aggressive guards and militaristic atmosphere of the 1936 Games, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in With the end of the war, Mr. KNOX began a degree in horticulture at the Ontario Agricultural College. Although he wanted to continue in the family's farming tradition -- he was a distant cousin of the Massey family, who made a fortune with the Massey-Ferguson Tractor Company -- Mr. KNOX set aside his dream to support his wife and young children. Instead, he took a job in sales at Upjohn Co. of Canada, a pharmaceutical company. A wordsmith and creative person, he later moved into advertising. When he was 52, he changed careers again, and set up Scholar House Publishing, a successful publisher of trade magazines.
"He was always reinventing himself," said his wife, Rosemary KNOX. "He could persuade you of anything."

Lister SINCLAIR: Broadcaster, Playwright (1921-2006)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation personality and intellectual closely identified with the radio program Ideas loathed being called a Renaissance man, yet excelled at almost everything
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- His voice, writings and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio plays were heard by Canadians for seven decades. In the end, though, Lister SINCLAIR was best known as the man who hosted Ideas for 16 years. Although he was part of a team, listeners thought of Ideas and Lister SINCLAIR as one, since his sense of curiosity and vast knowledge were reflected in the program.
Yet, he was more than that. To an earlier generation, he was the writer of more than 400 feature-length radio plays, and hundreds of other shorter works that ranged from wartime propaganda to children's stories.
In the early days, his plays were as important on radio as documentaries are today. In fact, the American magazine Variety, in describing one of his plays as "boffo," said it was as smoothly written as a documentary.
The play, Hilda Morgan, dealt with a young woman whose fiancé is killed in a car accident. She is pregnant, and her sister suggests an abortion -- without using the actual word. The play caused an uproar in the House of Commons, the type of outrage now reserved for documentaries that carry a definite message. It was Lister SINCLAIR's rule to "always be on the side of the victim."
Whenever reporters wrote about him, they always seemed to mention his age. At first, it was because he was so young for someone to have done so much. "At 27, Lister SINCLAIR is already well known as author, actor, critic, mathematician and linguist," said a publicity blurb in April of 1948.
Two years later, Time ran a piece on the "Bombay-born Lister SINCLAIR, 29, who had three of his original radio scripts dramatized on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Stage 50 last week."
By 1956, it was along the lines of "At 35, Lister SINCLAIR is one of the principal contributors to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's radio and television drama series."
Almost 40 years later, the air of amazement was still evident. In 1995, a profile in The Globe mentioned that, at 74, Mr. SINCLAIR had been at it for 50 years and "shows no signs of slowing down."
While he will always be associated with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation mainstream, Mr. SINCLAIR represented a kind of eccentric (he wrote most of his scripts longhand) who was almost a caricature of the professional intellectual. He called himself an "omnibrow," rather than a highbrow.
Over the years, he wrote many books and articles but was best known for the spoken word. With his beautiful voice, he could explain complex ideas in simple sentences.
The first time Canadians heard that voice was when he was acting on radio. Later, he hosted and narrated The Nature of Things he even came up with the name -- when it first went on television. In that same period, he also took a comic turn on Wayne and Shuster, the hugely popular comedy show. There he changed a bit, and chose to sound Canadian. He once described himself as "a pretty good second-rate actor. But unlike first-rate actors like John Drainie, I couldn't turn into someone else."
Lister SINCLAIR had an unusual start in life. He was born in India, but never really knew the place. His father, William SINCLAIR, was a chemical engineer working in India. At 18 months, Lister was sent home to Britain to live with an aunt. Years later, he said perhaps his mother had worried he might come down with tropical diseases.
His English aunt proved to be somewhat overprotective, even cruel. He did not see his parents again until he was 7, when they came home on extended leave. At 8, he was packed off to Colet Court, a boarding school that served as a feeder for the great English public school of Saint Paul's. Though young Lister did poorly at prep school, often coming last in his class, he was clever at math and won a scholarship to Saint Paul's. Among his fellow students were the grandchildren of Sigmund Freud, the family having fled the Nazis to settle in London.
Later in life, he told of a savage beating he suffered for talking back to a matron, a woman who worked at the school. One of the masters, her boyfriend, beat him so badly with a pool cue that he broke a bone at the base of the boy's spine. The master was fired over the incident.
Mr. SINCLAIR was bitter about his lost childhood, having been all but abandoned by his parents, yet never dwelled on it. He understood that, from their point of view, it was a great thing to be educated at one of Britain's top schools. Meanwhile, when he was not away at school, his aunt continued to rule his life and once refused to allow him to go on a supervised scout trip to France.
For all that, his parents did weigh in from time to time. In the summer of 1939, his mother, reassured by a travel agency that there wasn't going to be a war, arrived in England and booked a trip to New York to attend a World's Fair. They sailed on the Normandie, a luxurious French ship that was then the fastest liner on the North Atlantic run, landed in New York to see the fair and then headed for Buffalo, New York They were visiting Niagara Falls as part of a package tour, when Britain declared war on Germany. It was September 3, 1939, and mother and son were stuck on the wrong side of the Atlantic. The father was isolated in India, so the two of them set off for the West, first to Washington state and then north to Vancouver. They travelled by bus.
Mr. SINCLAIR enrolled at the University of British Columbia during his first week in Canada. To his Canadian classmates, he must have appeared rather odd (he walked with a cane and had a strange English accent), and yet at University of British Columbia he made some of his first meaningful Friendships.
"He seemed pretty old and knew everything," said Pierre Berton, a fellow student at University of British Columbia. "We always figured he swotted up on things the night before so he could tell us exactly what it was that Mozart had said to Beethoven. He was a non-stop talker and a very fast reader… he remembered everything he ever read."
Later, Mr. SINCLAIR went to the University Toronto to study for a master's degree and in 1942 he made extra money by teaching math to undergraduates and by acting at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He was part of what became known as the "Vancouver Exodus" of young intellectuals who headed for Toronto during the 1940s.
At the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, he first wrote war propaganda, for there was no question of him joining the war effort. He was lame from a back injury -- not from the beating, but from falling down stairs -- which was why he walked with the aid of at least one cane. One of his first acting jobs was to imitate Germans in such works as Nazi Eyes on Canada. It was narrated by Lorne Greene, the chief announcer at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation who was known as the Voice of Doom, and featured actress Helen Hayes.
Mr. SINCLAIR soon began writing plays and he entered a period of great productivity. As a trained mathematician, he liked to say that math and drama had much in common. After all, both were the arrangement of ideas.
In all, he wrote more than 700 radio plays, some very ambitious. One of his favourites was about Socrates, the Greek philosopher.
"Of course he liked it," said a former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation colleague. "He was so much like Socrates -- someone devoted to teaching and talking. Socrates never wrote anything. Lister did, but it is nothing compared to the words he spoke in plays and on Ideas."
After radio, Mr. SINCLAIR moved to television, where he was sought after as a performer as well as a writer. He had to cut his hair, trim his beard and not dress like a bohemian. While many of his radio programs are on tape in the archives, his earlier television programs were broadcast live and vanished, unrecorded.
"I do wish I had more of these things on tape. One thing that I much regret, for example, is a television drama that, in fact, was one of my better television programs. It was called Beethoven. Lorne Greene played Beethoven before he left for Hollywood. But there was no kinescope [copy]. It's completely gone."
Pierre Berton, who died in 2004, told The Globe that Mr. SINCLAIR could have easily joined Lorne Greene and Canadians who went to Hollywood.
"I think he regrets that he didn't go to Broadway in the fifties. There was no theatre here to speak of when he was writing. He wrote wonderful [radio] plays. He got good reviews and an audience."
For a time, Mr. SINCLAIR considered trying his luck in London's West End but instead stayed in Canada, producing and writing a greater variety of material than perhaps anyone else in the country.
"I'm interested in pretty well anything, but finance is low on the list," he told The Globe. "I'm also not very interested in selling." Even though he knew his limitations, that was not enough to stop him from trying what he must have known he was not good at -- running things. Perhaps the strangest period of his long career was a spell in Canadian Broadcasting Corporation management. It read like one of his plays in three acts: the opening farce, the melodrama and the final tragic act.
It all began to unfold in 1968 when Laurent PICARD, an academic who later became dean of the Faculty of Management at McGill University in Montreal, was made an executive vice-president at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In 1972, Mr. PICARD became president and decided he needed someone creative to run the network's English-language services. He fastened on Lister SINCLAIR and made him executive vice-president of English services.
Suddenly, Mr. SINCLAIR, a man who had never managed more than a small broadcast production, found himself in charge of a vast bureaucracy. A producer had never risen so high the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation hierarchy. "It was a disaster," said one of his Friends. "The rumour was, he went to Coles and bought a book on management. He was not suited to it."
Mr. PICARD soon realized his mistake and conflicts began to erupt. After two years, Mr. SINCLAIR was downgraded to vice-president of program policy and development. Two years later, he was out of management altogether and describing administration as "a branch of anthropology." It was the only period of his life that could be categorized as a failure.
He soon went back to doing what he did best -- writing, performing and producing programs, especially ones that dealt with difficult subjects. He became a frequent guest on Morningside at a time when the host was his friend Don Harron. Together, they did ambitious stuff, such as imaginary tours of 18th-century Venice, complete with the sound effects of oared gondolas.
At an age when many people start to think of retirement, Mr. SINCLAIR took on the job of host of Ideas. For 16 years, he was the voice for more than 2,000 programs, hundreds of which he wrote and produced himself. He was often late for recording sessions and, if the programs were his own scripts, he worked to the last possible deadline.
Mr. SINCLAIR was also a fixture on the program Court of Opinion and helped organize the Association of Canadian Television and Radio Artists. Now known as A.C.T.R.A., it represents thousands of Canadian performers.
His private life was sometimes as complex as his professional life. Lister SINCLAIR was married three times, and had several relationships that ran for years. He had two sons from different marriages, remained close to one but was estranged from another. He said he found family life difficult which, given his own formative years, is not surprising.
Soon after settling in Toronto, Mr. SINCLAIR and wife, Alice, whom he had met at University of British Columbia, became part of an artist's community in Kleinberg, north of Toronto.
"The community was called Windrush and the houses were designed by Bill McCROW, who was a set designer at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation," said Peter SINCLAIR, a technology entrepreneur who is his son from his first marriage.
Alice SINCLAIR lived in the house until her death and, although Mr. SINCLAIR moved out, he never went far. He made lasting Friendships in Toronto and was elevated to the status of national icon, a characterization he despised right along with the even more loathsome "Renaissance man."
Mr. SINCLAIR shed the awkwardness of youth and became an attractive, middle-aged man. Women were often intensely attracted by his casual style, diffident manner and quick mind. He lost little of his appeal in old age.
He was awarded the Order of Canada in 1985.
Lister Shedden SINCLAIR was born in Bombay on January 9, 1921. He died in hospital in Toronto yesterday. He was 85. He is survived by his sons Peter and Andrew.

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.

GILHULY, Sister Angela Marie (Anne Lillian GILHULY)
At Ignatia Hall, Mount St. Joseph, on Thursday, February 16, 2006, Sister Angela Marie GILHULY (Anne Lillian) of the Community of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Diocese of London, in her 82nd year. Lovingly remembered by her sister Dorothea O.S.U. of the Pines, Chatham, and her many devoted nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her parents John C. GILHULY and Delima GILHULY (BOYER,) her brothers John, Gordon, Francis and Harold, and by her sisters Della PICHARD and Mary MARTIN. Lillian GILHULY trained with the Sisters of St. Joseph in Chatham and subsequently entered the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1948. At the reception of the habit, Lillian was given the religious name of Sister Angela Marie. Following her Novitiate she was sent to St. Joseph's Hospital in Sarnia from 1950 to 1954 and St. Joseph's Hospital in London from 1954 to 1981. Over these years Sister Angela Marie worked in intensive care units. Her outstanding qualities of gentleness, patience and compassion combined with her astute mind and competent care made her a leader in her own right. Remaining updated professionally, she encouraged those she supervised to continue their education and to grow in their nursing profession. The Sisters of St. Joseph, recognizing her leadership qualities appointed Sister Angela Marie as Supervisor of Ignatia Hall, Mount St. Joseph, where she offered compassionate care to the Sisters from 1981 to 2000, the year in which she retired. Over her years of active ministry, many Friendships were forged with Sisters, staff and patients. Though Sister Angela Marie will be greatly missed by the Sisters of St. Joseph, the nursing staff in Ignatia Hall, her family and Friends, especially Elaine and Dan LEE and children Kathleen and Brendan, we know that she longed to see the face of God and always experienced inner peace and equanimity during her illness.

KIRK, Norman
Norman KIRK's family celebrated his life last Tuesday. The blur of the past two weeks has cleared and it is time to reflect and give thanks. The many cards of sympathy, phone calls, memorial gifts, food and personal visits from Friends, neighbours, pensioner club members, lodge brethren, and fellow church members were much appreciated. Though a fiercely independent gentleman, Norman would not have reached the age he did without great and caring support. To his family physician, Doctor PICHE, to his super neighbours Bob and Dianne, and Muriel and Vi; to the health professionals who worked with him at home and in the hospital…thank you very much. Thanks too, to: Needhams for their excellent service; the officers and members of Saint_John's 209a for their memorial service Norman's six grand_sons for acting as pallbearers; the Knox-Wesley ladies for their hard work in providing us lunch; and finally to both Rev. Tom HISCOCK and Rev. Fred McKINNON for providing the guidance, leadership and reassurance we needed. Now, if Norman had been writing this 'thank you' himself, he would simply have said: "Thank you!"

McRAE, Elizabeth "Betty" Hope (formerly PICHÉ, née BLYTH)
By Bob McRAE, Page A32
Philanthropist, wife, mother. Born December 15, 1922, in Britannia Bay, Ontario Died July 23, in Ottawa, of leukemia, aged 83.
Betty McRAE was born (as were three sporting boys) to William and May BLYTH. She grew up in the Great Depression, in a family thankful for the monthly cheque brought home by her father, a decorated First World War veteran. To listen to Betty, she had the best childhood imaginable. Betty told stories of summer swimming at Britannia Park beach, diving off the towers at the end of the pier or watching streetcars bringing thousands to the "end of the line" and, in winter, skating on Mud Lake or across farmers' fields under glistening stars.
Betty married Earl PICHÉ while in her late teens; they had a son. Her young husband was soon off to fight in the Second World War. One day, only weeks before the end of the war, Betty learned that her husband Earl had been killed in Germany by a sniper's bullet. Just a few months earlier, her dear brother Fred had been killed fighting in Italy.
A short while later Bill McRAE (a childhood sweetheart) called and late in 1946 they were married. Together Bill and Betty had five children whom they raised (along with her first son, Earl). Betty embraced motherhood, unconditionally, from the beginning, to the end. Her children truly have difficulty remembering a day that she took off.
Family and Friends were Betty's passion. Photographs adorned every wall of her home. Until recently, Betty held family Sunday night dinners, dinners every Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and other special occasions. These were gargantuan undertakings with her children, grandchildren and often a few other invitees attending. Betty's phone was constantly busy as her children, and often grandchildren, checked in daily, if for no other reason than just to hear her voice.
She had a friendly smile or hello for anyone she passed and often would stop to talk, whether to a homeless person, a student packing groceries, a person doing some volunteer work, or someone out for a walk. Often on leaving she would give students or the less fortunate some money, along with some words of encouragement. Betty gave to more charities than you can imagine, particularly organizations devoted to the well-being and health of people. Betty was particularly devoted to the war veterans and their causes. Every year for weeks leading up to Remembrance Day, she would faithfully sell poppies then spend every November 11 watching the ceremonies on television; she preferred mourning by herself.
Betty had a genuine joie de vivre; her jovial, friendly spirit was contagious, with everyone seeking her out for some good-natured fun, conversation or dancing. She was able to lift the spirits and bring out the fun side of the most introverted.
Betty was an intelligent, beautiful, fit woman, until recently looking 20 years younger than her age. She loved politics, elections, and sports, both participating and watching them. Up until the age of 81, when her leukemia began to slow her down, Betty played tennis regularly for hours at a time and adored her walks for miles along the scenic paths of the Ottawa River Parkway.
This summer the leukemia began to seriously restrict Betty's independence. Never wanting to be any sort of a burden, Betty decided it was time. For two weeks in July she rested at home and said goodbye to family and Friends. Only hours after becoming a great-grandmother for the first time, Betty took her last breath at home, held by her husband and children.
At Betty's burial, a sunny summer day, the bagpipes played, and butterflies, representative of resurrection, flitted about as a hundred balloons were released into the beautiful blue sky.
Bob McRAE is Betty's son.
