Suzanne ROCHON- BURNETT, Broadcaster: (1935-2006)
Articulate, bilingual and passionate, she became the owner of a commercial radio station -- the first aboriginal to do so in Canada, writes Sandra MARTIN. It turned out to be a powerhouse enterprise
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Suzanne ROCHON- BURNETT had more "firsts" in her life than most people have fingers. The first aboriginal woman to own and operate a commercial radio station and the first woman to be inducted into the Canadian Aboriginal Business Hall of Fame, she had many other achievements, including membership in the Orders of Ontario and Canada and an honorary doctorate from Brock University.
Articulate, bilingual and female, she was an obvious candidate for community and cultural boards in the postfeminist, multicultural, postconstitutional Canada of the 1980s and 1990s. What mattered, though, was what she brought to these privileged positions: passion, experience, advocacy, business acumen and commercial success as a broadcaster and the Chief Executive Officer of her own business.
Cultural advocate Nalini Stewart, who met her after both women were appointed to the Canada Council in 1998, remembers Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT quoting Métis leader Louis Riel at her first board meeting: "My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who will fuel their spirits."
This statement, which Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT repeated frequently, was like a mantra. "She was a very passionate advocate, but she was not strident," said Ms. Stewart, who credits Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT with pressing the council to hire more aboriginal arts officers. "She was always educating us… and I felt very enriched by all the things I learned from her."
"Suzanne was a grand lady who brought enormous pride to her people," said Tony BELCOURT, president of the Métis Nation of Ontario. Having known her since 1972, he said she was like a sister to him. "She met every challenge head-on, persevered and was successful in everything she touched -- in business, in the arts, in communications, public service and in life. She gave 110 per cent."
Suzanne ROCHON- BURNETT was born in the Laurentians, north of Montreal in the middle of the Depression, the only daughter and middle child of Achille Joseph and Jeanne Marie BURNETT (née FILLION.) She was proud of her Métis heritage, which she could trace back through both sides of her family. She loved to tell stories about how her grandmother made and sold hats to supplement her income after she was widowed in her 40s, with 12 children to raise and a farm to run. Her mother carried on the artisan tradition by designing sweaters, hiring local women to knit them and then selling the finished product to tourists. At 7, Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT was hard at work as a courier, delivering wool to knitters and picking up the finished pieces to take back to her mother to assemble into sweaters.
Her parents sent her to boarding school at Pensionnat des Saint-Anges, a convent in Saint_Jérome, Quebec, where the nuns rapped her knuckles if she didn't attend to lessons or speak clearly in class. Decades later, she told an interviewer that her parents had warned her before she left home to keep her Indian blood a secret because "it doesn't show." She believed her parents were trying to protect her, but it left her "wondering what was wrong with it."
After the convent, she went to Proulx Business College to learn typing and shorthand. The job choices in her community in the 1950s were few: "The bank, the Bell, or the mill." She wasn't interested in the first two, so she applied for a job as a secretary, but the mill owner rejected her, saying she was too talented. According to Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT, he called her father and said, "don't let her work in this small town. It will bury her." Instead, the mill owner introduced Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT to the manager of CKJL-AM (now CJER-AM,) a radio station that had opened in Saint_Jerome in 1952. The manager was so impressed with her diction and pronunciation that he gave her a job.
Later, Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT credited her knuckle-rapping nuns for getting her a start as a broadcaster. But it was her own drive, journalistic talents and easy charm that won her a job as host, producer and public relations director of the station when she was 19, a position she held for six years. During this time, she also repackaged some of her programs for other stations around the province, took night classes in public relations and marketing at McGill University, and began working as a freelance journalist in print as well as broadcast.
With her striking colouring -- pale skin and chestnut hair and dark eyes -- she also found work as a model, becoming "the face" of the Montreal Royals baseball team and appearing in commercials on television. She made the most of the hedonism of the 1960s travelling around Europe working as a freelance print and broadcast journalist, living for a time in Paris, where she was said to have stayed in Edith Piaf's apartment and made Friends with Jacques Brel, hooking up with Gypsies in Spain and acting in commercials for NBC in New York.
Back in Canada, she converted a Laurentian lodge into a successful art gallery. She sold the business after she met and married Gordon BURNETT, owner of CHOW-AM in Welland, Ontario, in 1967. They soon had a baby daughter, Michèle-Elise BURNETT. The family moved to St. Catharines, where Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT was a full-time mother and volunteer for several years. One day, after dropping her daughter at school, she was struck by the empty hours in her days. "I'm 40 years old. I'm going to be 60 one day and I'm going to turn around and say 'what have I done with my life,' " she told Niagara magazine in May, 2005.
She came up with Chansons à la Française, a program idea that she turned into a one-hour show on CHOW that quickly expanded into two, and then four hours. The Ontario Ministry of Culture sponsored its distribution to more than 20 AM and FM radio stations in the province. That led to frequent invitations to appear as a commentator on francophone and Québécois talent on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's Morningside, first when Harry Brown was a host and then with Don Harron.
In the recession of the early 1990s, her husband's AM radio station was gasping for survival. In 1995, she formed a company, R.B. Communications, and bought her husband's firm Wellport Broadcasting Ltd., and became the owner of a commercial radio station -- the first aboriginal to do so in this country. She was 60 years old and her husband was 75. Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT knew that having an FM frequency was essential for the station's success and she also knew that there was a licence for an FM frequency -- 97.1 -- available from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.
"I looked at my mom and she looked at me and we said: 'Okay, let's go for it,'" said her daughter Michèle-Elise BURNETT, who was then 28 and in the business, having studied radio and television arts at Ryerson in Toronto. They won the licence in 1997, and launched a new format country music station they called Spirit 91.7 F.M. "It was a powerhouse," said Ms. BURNETT. "We became the second-most powerful station in the market, and very competitive."
Beginning in the 1980s, Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT had begun sitting on the boards of community native and arts and culture organizations, including the Canadian Native foundation for the Arts, TVOntario, the Métis Nation of Ontario, the Canada Council for the Arts and Brock University. At one time, she was working on six major boards simultaneously.
About three years ago, Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT was having trouble breathing. She was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive scarring of the lungs that makes it increasingly difficult for them to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream. There is no cure and treatment options are negligible. Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT applied for a lung transplant, but she was an unsuitable candidate. She sold the station in 2004, but continued her advocacy work. About a year ago, she and her husband, who had led separate lives for some time, separated. Their daughter said that the radio station was the last thing her parents had in common. After it was sold, they divorced.
Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT made her last public appearance in February when she was the first woman to be inducted into the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business Hall of Fame. Still beautiful, her shoulder-length black hair still shiny, she made a joke about her "leash." It was a reference to the portable oxygen tank held by her 12-year-old grand_son, who had designed a backpack to make it easier for her to carry it around. Always intuitive, she spoke as though she were making a farewell speech, rather than accepting an award. "When you start reliving your life, you realize you don't really have any worries about dying because it is part of life," she said. "I am here to let you know that my life was good. It was full of challenges, but it was a great life." Referring to the many boards on which she served, she was grateful that "her dreams had become a reality" and that she had had the opportunity to work with people who had "the same belief in aboriginal capacity and power."
Suzanne ROCHON- BURNETT was born on March 10, 1935, in Mont Rolland, Quebec She died in Welland, Ontario, of a brain hemorrhage on April 2, 2006. She was 71.
She is survived by her daughter Michéle-Elise BURNETT and her husband Bill REICH and two grand_sons. She also leaves her former husband, Gordon BURNETT. There will be a traditional ceremony and celebration of her life on May 7 at 2 p.m. at the Pond Inlet at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario

In loving memory of a beloved mother and friend Dora Ellen (LINTON) REID, who passed away July 22, 2002 in her 93rd year.
She had a loving nature and a heart as pure as gold
She always had a smiling face and a story to be told
A wonderful sense of humor and a twinkle in her eye
A helping hand in time of need, on that you could rely
Maybe we can't touch her hand or see her smiling face
And maybe we can't hear her voice or feel her warm embrace
But something we will always have, trucked safely in our hearts
Our love for her, her love for us, will never let us part
- Forever loved and treasured by the Reid family and Kevin LONG.

REID, Ian
With the greatest sadness, we announce that heart disease took Ian REID on March 23, in Saint Thomas. His Friends are invited to pay their respects at 11: 00 a.m. on Friday, March 31. A gravesite service will be held at Holy Angels' Cemetery in Saint Thomas, Ontario. Ian, who previously lived in London, Mississauga, Toronto, Chicago, Victoria, and Timmins was proud of his adopted Canadian citizenship. Born at St. Bartholomew's Hospital in the City of London, Ian and his brother Mac emigrated from England with their parents in 1947. Harsh winters in Timmins were only one of many difficulties that Ian overcame. When their mother Harriet, began long radiation treatments to combat cancer, Ian and Mac sacrificed childhood play to care for their baby brother; the love for reading and learning they transferred to Brian enabled him to become a Doctor of Philosophy, but Ian's schooling suffered and he matured too quickly. By the time his mother died in 1965, he had already married for the first time to Frances, mother of Ian, Diane, and Réal. It was in the 1960s that Ian began helping others through charitable acts that continued throughout his life, culminating in recognition by the Governor-General of Canada. Ian was honoured for his service to the Canadian Red Cross, supporting their work with plasma and apheresis and donating blood himself more than 200 times. Never one to seek recognition, he helped others because in his democratic world view he hoped that everyone would do what they could. Based on his experience in palliative care, Ian did appear in a volunteer training video for London Hospice. Into his busy family and work life, he crammed many activities to benefit others, serving on committees at London Transit and the Byron branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. For many years, Ian served as lay counselor to family, Friends, people in hospice care, recovering alcoholics, and strangers whom he touched. Ian and Rachelle fostered more than sixty children: "It was amazing, the things that behaviour-challenged children would do for Ian, things that they just wouldn't do for anybody else." Empathetic and never condescending, he had a talent for making people feel better. Earning a certificate in bereavement counseling from the University of Western Ontario enabled him to apply research-supported clinical advice to those who needed his support. A founder of Employee Assistance at London Transit, Ian's pseudonym Justin Fun was a columnist for the Omnibus newsletter. An avid writer to newspaper editors, Ian also created a character Hal F. Wit, who dispensed off-kilter advice through the neighbourhood newsletter. Every day was humour day for Ian, especially when he helped others deal with sadness. His work pals knew him as a "joke-a-day" man. An unregenerate punster, Ian's gift for mimicry allowed him to create many hilarious, imaginary, politically incorrect characters. Snooker rivalry between Ian and Mac graduated to a snooker league at Strokers involving many players in a dozen teams. Mac told anyone who would listen that: "Starting the league was Ian's way of getting a trophy." Like his father George, taken by cancer in 1989, Ian was a proud Canadian who loved hockey - a game he played for half a century. His team-mates loved his positive talk and he used his management skills to make their rink time fun time. In the past year at St. Gabriel's School he made play time fun time for the little ones who called him, "Mr. Grandpa." Those tykes are the only people who called him "Mister." To everyone else, Ian REID was "Ian." Polite and unpretentious, but also a man with a voice as huge as his heart, Ian made Friends every place he went. He leaves a hole in his close family today. Rachelle, his wife and companion these past 27 years, will miss him every minute of every day. In addition to Diane, Ian, and Réal, Ian Sr. leaves behind three daughters: Lori, Lisa, and Aimi; their husbands, Michael BAYLEY and Gary McKAY; two grand-children: Shannon McKAY and Fabbio BALDINELLI; brothers, Mac of London and Brian of Annandale, Virginia. He will be sorely missed by sisters, Joanne and Sharon. A brother to all, Ian helped Raymond and Bob and Roger and too many others to name. We, he left behind, will never know all the good deeds he performed on this earth, but someone has been watching. From Saint Thomas to St. Peter is a short drive. For that trip we join Ian's best friend Fabbio, who says, "love you Grampa."

KALBFLEISCH, Claude Elwyn (1912-2006)
Died peacefully at the Sunshine Centre in Waterloo, Ontario on October 31 a few days before his 94th birthday. Claude was born to Edward KALBFLEISCH and Matilda (LIESEMER) and was the last surviving brother of five. In 1939 he married Janet AGNEW and they shared their lives together for 65 years until Janet's death last year. His sister-in-law, Marion SHAW, formerly of Goderich, now lives in Waterloo. He will be greatly missed by his children and their partners: Jim and Rebecca KALBFLEISCH of Waterloo Jack and Sharon KALBFLEISCH of Ann Arbor, Michigan; Carol KALBFLEISCH and Doug CAMPBELL of Oakville; and Peter KALBFLEISCH and Lynn REID of West Vancouver.

He also has six great-grandchildren. Claude was a caring and dedicated mathematics high school teacher for almost forty years, and during that time rarely failed to provide his regular "morning smile" at the beginning of every class. Claude was a long time member of Goderich North Street United Church, a charter member of the MacKay Center for Seniors in Goderich, and a member of the Masonic Lodge in Clifford. He was a keen gardener whose roses and vegetables were the envy of the neighbourhood. Claude loved a good game of cribbage, and his sense of humour never deserted him. The family wishes to thank Doctor Angus BENNETT, the staff of the Sunshine Centre, and Ann McELHONE of HomeInstead for their caring. Visitation will be held at the McCallum and Palla Funeral Home (11 Cambria Rd.

Born in London, Ontario in 1930, the only child of Ernest Anderson LAVERY and Norma Loretta REID, Ken began his multitude of careers as a deckhand. This experience led him to realize the importance of education so he took on a job as a tobacco primer to finance his future education. After his service in Germany with the 27th Infantry Brigade and working as short order chef, Ken continued his commitment to lifelong learning as he worked through careers as teacher, devoted husband, author, proud father, managing partner of Touche Ross and P Ross. S. and Partners, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Brewers Association of Canada, and caring grandfather. Finally, Ken initiated a successful class action suit in the United Kingdom versus Cuthbert Heath, 418 Merrett Insurance Syndicate and Ernst and Whinny leading to Lloyd's of London making an offer for 'final' settlement of all outstanding litigation accepted by over 35,000 Names; but not this one. Well travelled and a member of many professional associations and societies, Ken had Friends and colleagues all around the world. Regardless of the many international places he visited, Ken's favourite places were found in his own backyard: Hardy Bay, Mississauga Golf Club, Saint_James Oyster Bar, Royal Montreal and Ottawa Golf Clubs, Rideau Club Billiards Room, Caledon Mountain Trout Club, East India Club, The Ocean Club (Stuart, Florida) and fishing for sail off the St. Lucie Inlet. Other favorite passions included the Forum for Young Canadians and Trudeau Liberals. Visitation to be held at P.X. Dermody Funeral Home (www.pxdermodyfuneral.com), located on 7 East Avenue South in Hamilton, on Thursday, April 20 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of Ken's life will take place at St. Andrew's Church, 47 Reynolds Street in Oakville on Friday, April 21 at 11 a.m. with burial to follow at Holy Supulchre Cemetery.

He was stationed in Halifax, then Southampton, United Kingdom and participated in the Allied Forces invasion of Normandy in 1944. Art was honourably discharged in 1945 after serving his country. Several years later, on a ski train headed from Montreal to Ste. Agathe he met his wife Doris and renewed a romance that had begun before the war. Art and Doris married in 1954 and settled in Rosemere, Quebec. In 1988 they moved to Ottawa where they grew to love the city, and all it had to offer. He joined the Metropolitan Bible Church and was consistently proud of it's growth over his many years of membership. A lover of nature and the outdoors, Art enjoyed golf, curling, skiing, sailing, walks, hikes, and observing all the natural beauty Canada has to offer and encouraged his children and grandchildren to do the same. Art had a kind word for everyone. He sponsored godchildren in Africa and the Philippines, and led his family by example. He will be greatly missed by his three boys, his daughters-in-law, his six grandchildren, his brothers and sisters-in-law. We love you Dad, thanks for your leadership and guiding hand. May you rest in peace. Friends may visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa on Thursday, May 18, 2006 from 7-9 p.m. A private family graveside service will be held. Those wishing may make donations to a charity of their choice. condolences/ donations/tributes at www.mcgarryfamily.ca

BELL, Thomas Edward James (1941-2006)
After a valiant battle against cancer, our dad, husband, brother, and friend passed away Friday, June 30th at Sunnybrook Hospital. He was a loving husband and friend to Pam (née TAIT/TAITE/TATE,) a wonderful father and mentor to Catherine BELL (Kent BROWN,) Jennifer BELL (Jeff BURZYNSKI) and Kimberley BELL (Wes PARKER,) and a fabulous grandfather to John and Michael BROWN, Sidney and Grayson BURZYNSKI, and Keara PARKER. He was a cherished brother to Carolyn McLENNAN (Peter McLENNAN) and he loved and was loved by his nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his parents, Tom and Lillian BELL. After completing his B.Sc. at McGill University, (fun filled years of fraternity and playing Redman hockey), Tom began his career in business. He was a seasoned marketing, sales, and operations executive who had a passion for entrepreneurial opportunities. Tom greatly enjoyed various challenging positions that took him across Canada and around the world. Tom had a sincere love of nature. His cottage at Big Gull Lake was particularly special to him. He was a keen observer and had a deep understanding of the natural world. He was happiest in the outdoors - at his lake or in the garden. Tom will be remembered by his daughters as the best dad ever - from hours spent teaching them how to water-ski to offering his wise counsel on life's more complex issues. He was patient, reassuring, and most definitely their greatest fan. For those who knew him well, he will be missed for his passion and fight for life, his genuine positive attitude, his twinkling eyes, and bright smile. We would like to thank Doctor BERRY and his team at Sunnybrook Hospital and Doctors KOCHA, REID, and LOGAN and their team at the London Health Sciences Centre for their exceptional efforts. Tom's care at both facilities was outstanding and we would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of the nurses involved in his care. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the London (Ontario) Health Sciences Neuroendocrine Program, 800 Commissioners Road East, P.O. Box 5010 London, Ontario, Canada N6A 5W9. A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, July 5th at 1: 00 p.m. at Lawrence Park Community Church in Toronto.

She went on to become a highly respected Artist/ Painter in Western Canada as well as in the greater International Art World. Her fulfilling career as a painter was complemented by her adventurous world travels, her fabulous parties, and her unprecedented culinary skills all of which were accented by her elegance and personal panache. These qualities were the signature of my Mum, Betty BLACK. Please come and celebrate her life on Saturday, October 7 @ 3: 00 p.m. at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver on 49th Avenue at Oak Street.

David PARTRIDGE, 87: Painted with nails
By Tamara CHERRY, Staff Reporter
To the art world, he was the "naillie" pioneer. To those who knew him best, he was the committed crossword puzzler, teller of ghost stories and frustrated musician.
"I've never thought of myself as a sculptor," David PARTRIDGE said in a 2003 interview with the Star. "I'm a painter who paints with nails."
At that time, PARTRIDGE also rejected the idea that his most recent show, "Phenomena," might be his last. But it was.
PARTRIDGE hammered his way through an award-winning career with hundreds of thousands of nails, inviting recognition from the artistic and political communities alike.
In recent years, however, he was slowed by a stroke, bowel infection and heart attack. He died December 11 at age 87.
"There was so much to celebrate about his life," Kate PARTRIDGE said of her father whose career spanned England and much of Ontario before he settled in Toronto in the 1970s.
"He had a creative urge that just was unlike anything I've ever seen in anybody else," his son John PARTRIDGE said.
That creativity burst into the art scene with his first self-titled "naillie" in 1958. PARTRIDGE the painter had chanced upon an exhibition by Zoltan Kemeny made up of metal bits and pieces in Paris that March.
Back in Ottawa, that creativity -- combined with a 2-by-3-ft piece of plywood, nails and hammer -- led to his first nail sculpture.
Later, living in England in the early 1960s, he created about 400 naillies. "Back then I was forever lifting 60-pound boxes of nails up and down stairs to my studio," he told the Star in PARTRIDGE's work -- commissioned by places from the Townhouse Motel in Ottawa to Westminster Cathedral in London, England -- is likely most recognized locally by the naillie found in the entrance to Toronto City Hall. Called Metropolis, PARTRIDGE couldn't recall how many nails it took to complete the sweeping relief in 1975. Most guidebooks put it at 100,000.
"Even though the medium, the nails, is so cold and hard on the surface of things, he was somehow able to make this incredibly soft, flowing pleasing beauty out of it," his daughter said.
It was a beauty that spoke broadly, making naillies popular with the public, said Dennis REID, director of collections and research at the Art Gallery of Ontario and a long-time friend.
"People discover things in them. You see people approaching them with a sense of wonder."
And it was a beauty taken from above. While his wife was overseas in the Navy during World War 2, PARTRIDGE was in Ontario teaching flying lessons. His view from the sky translated on to planks of wood, his son said.
In the 1970s, PARTRIDGE bought an ultralight airplane kit, put it together in a studio and flew it on Stony Lake, near Peterborough.
PARTRIDGE will be remembered "as somebody who just made this very strong personal statement as a sculptor," REID said. "You don't think of him in terms of schools. He was attuned to his own visions in his own intense fashion."
"(He) had a love for kids and shaggy dog stories for adults -- great long stories with ridiculous endings," sister Kate said. "There was a very delightful child-like energy to him… with a lot of charisma in the twinkling of his eyes."
His father could burst into song at the drop of a hat, played a trumpet too, and delighted in telling Stephen Leacock ghost stories at his Stony Lake cottage, said John. He was a lover of "long, involved corny jokes."
A stroke paralyzed his right side in September 2003, ending his work with nails. But the right-hander taught himself to paint with his left hand, his son recalled.
"It was just remarkable. He just kept doing it… It was as if he couldn't stop being creative."
When he couldn't make it to Ottawa to be inducted as a Member of the Order of Canada, then-Governor General Adrienne Clarkson came to his home to hand over the honour personally the following year.
PARTRIDGE leaves behind his wife of 63 years, Rosemary or "Tibs," and their two children.
