Village's spirited defender dies
Long Branch's Marie CURTIS, 94, fought subway wars, hurricane Hazel
By James RUSK. Page A12
Marie CURTIS, who as reeve of the village of Long Branch from 1953 to 1962 paved its streets and fought the building of the Bloor-Danforth subway line, has died.
Ms. CURTIS, a feisty woman whose spirited advocacy for her municipality foreshadowed the careers of municipal leaders like Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCALLION, was one of the few remaining city political figures whose career began before the creation of Metropolitan Toronto in 1954.
A charter member of Metro council, Ms. CURTIS died of an apparent stroke on Sunday at age 94 in a nursing home in Markdale, said her daughter, Joan McGEE.
"She was absolutely a stormy petrel, as they used to call them in those days…. She was a doughty defender of her municipality, no doubt about it," said former Toronto mayor David CROMBIE. "I'm an old Swansea guy from the waterfront, and Marie CURTIS was one of my mom's heroes."
When Ms. CURTIS was reeve, the village on Long Branch on the shore of Lake Ontario had a population of only 10,000. Lakeshore Road, now Lakeshore Boulevard, was its main street, recalled Toronto councillor Doug HOLYDAY, whose family settled in the village in 1919.
"You could run into quite a few people on a Saturday and Marie knew just about everybody. Consequently, she was the reeve for nine years there," said Mr. HOLYDAY, the last mayor of Etobicoke before it was amalgamated with Toronto in 1997.
Ms. CURTIS and her husband moved to Long Branch in 1935 at the height of the Depression to escape high rents in Toronto. After a term as deputy reeve, she became reeve while the postwar boom was hitting a village that only a few years earlier had given returning Second World War veterans free building lots.
Those were likely lots on unpaved side streets, and one of Ms. CURTIS's achievements as reeve was to get sewer lines put in and the roads paved, her daughter said.
"They put in the sewers and they paved the streets and she got them to plant crabapple trees. And every spring, if you drive through Long Branch, there they still are on the edges of the streets," Ms. McGEE said.
Soon after Ms. CURTIS became reeve, two storms rolled in. One was the 1954 creation of Metropolitan Toronto, an upper-tier supergovernment that controlled and guided the city's postwar expansion.
The Lakeshore communities fought the creation of Metro, and although as reeve of Long Branch Ms. CURTIS served on the first Metro council, the fights did not end.
When Metro decided to build an east-west subway line and impose a small property-tax increase to help pay for it, she fought the tax all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.
She paid a price for her opposition to the subway line when she was tossed off Metro's executive committee.
At the time she told a reporter, "I'm in this fight because I think I'm right, and when you are right, you're not doing right by yourself or anyone else if you back down."
The other storm to hit in 1954 was hurricane Hazel. On October 15 that year, after moving up from the United States the storm battered Toronto, killing 81 people and leaving thousands of families homeless. Long Branch was severely flooded. After the storm, 30 properties that had been in its path on the flood plains of Etobicoke Creek were expropriated.
Property owners who thought they were not getting enough for their homes turned to Ms. CURTIS, and she helped them get more money from the city. Instead of houses being rebuilt at the same location, however, a 35-acre park was created at the mouth of Etobicoke Creek.
Then it came time to name the park.
"First they were going to call it Curtis Park, that was the story, then [former Ontario premier] Les FROST told [former Metro chair] Fred GARDINER that they would have to call it Marie Curtis Park, because there was only one Marie CURTIS. So they did that…. It is a living memorial to her. It always will be there," said Ms. McGEE said, adding that she will tell this story at her mother's funeral today.
In 1962, five years before a second round of amalgamation saw Long Branch merged into the city of Etobicoke, Ms. CURTIS left politics and moved with her husband to a retirement home near Flesherton in the Beaver Valley.
Until 1968, she was secretary-treasurer of the Mayors and Reeves of Ontario, the forerunner of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. Until a stroke four years ago, she returned to Toronto for events and, on occasion, to appear at council meetings to speak out for Long Branch, Mr. HOLYDAY said.
Ms. CURTIS was predeceased by her husband, Bryce, a son and a grand_son. She leaves her daughter, four grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Web clues in club shooting mystify police
By James RUSK, Page A10
Toronto police said yesterday that they have pictures of a man they suspect shot another man dead in an illegal after-hours club on Weston Road early Saturday morning.
They just don't know who he is, Detective Sergeant Gary GIROUX told a news conference at police headquarters.
He said that witnesses: in the community directed police to an Internet site on which the photographs of the suspect were posted.
The suspect, described by the police as a Hispanic in his late 20s or early 30s, is "extremely, extremely dangerous to the community. He is a high-risk to reoffend violently," Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
The suspect is wanted in connection with the shooting of Gabriel JARAMILLO, 22, just before 6 a.m. Saturday in an after-hours club at the rear of 1806 Weston Rd., near Lawrence Avenue West.
"The deceased was involved in a physical fight within the premise of the after-hours club, not with the shooter, with another male, who had been in the company of the shooter throughout the evening. The shooter intervened in the fight, and shot the deceased a number of times at extremely close range," Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
Mr. JARAMILLO was pronounced dead at the scene, and an autopsy performed yesterday morning concluded that he had died of a gunshot wound to the head, Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
The shooter and his friend were last seen on Weston Road.
According to the police, the suspect who fired the shots has a dark complexion, is 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 9, weighs 180 pounds, and has a thin nose, thin face, slight goatee, dark curly hair and tattoos with the word "libertad" on his arms, chest and the back of his neck.
His friend is described as a Hispanic in his late 20s or early 30s, 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 9, 200 pounds, lighter complexion than the shooter, wider face, big build, muscular, with a long, dark-brown ponytail just below the collar and one earring.
Also yesterday, police said they have made an arrest in another homicide committed in the city on the weekend.
Detective Sergeant Steve RYAN of the homicide squad said that Patrick BRADLEY, 25, has been charged with second-degree murder after his mother, Colleen BRADLEY, 59, was stabbed to death in her North York apartment near Keele Street and Sheppard Avenue West.

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Ken -- I Remember
By Bruce RUSK, Page S11
Neighbour Bruce RUSK also writes about Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
Shortly after my partner, James, and I moved into our condo, we were outside watching our 16-year-old wire-haired dachshund sniffing around (walking any distance was too challenging for Lionel) when an elderly man walked by with two dogs. He stopped to inquire about Lionel and introduced himself as Ken. A week later, I was walking through Craigleigh Gardens and saw Ken talking to someone. Not wanting to interrupt, I walked past.
"Hey, you didn't say hello," he called out. I turned. "Sorry, Ken, I wasn't ignoring you deliberately." After that, James and I made a point of stopping to say hello to him and to chat briefly. Ken was genuinely sad when Lionel died, and obviously pleased to meet D'Arcy, the new puppy. Even if we were driving by, we would roll down the window and say "Hi, Ken. How are you?" "Fine," would come the response. "Thank you for stopping and saying hello."
He was Lord Thomson of Fleet and Northbridge and the richest man in Canada but, to others, he was Ken, a kind neighbour who just liked to say hello.

MELANSON, Richard Edgar " Dick"
Diploma, Nova Scotia Agricultural College, 1941; B.Sc. Agricultural Engineering, MacDonald College (McGill University) 1943
Of Moncton, New Brunswick, passed away peacefully after a long illness, on May 31. Born to Walter A.S. MELANSON and Leona Gordon RAYWORTH on April 9, 1923 and raised in Moncton, Dick was widely known throughout the farm machinery and irrigation communities of Canada and the United States, but in particular in his native Maritimes. After service in the Canadian Army during the war where he held the rank of Lieutenant, he went to work with Cockshutt Farm Machinery in Truro, Nova Scotia and then in Brantford, Ontario. In 1957, Dick returned to his native Maritimes as the regional representative of Farmers' Supply and Equipment Ltd. In 1963, with the encouragement and support of his wife Jean, he established his own company, Maritime Farm Supply Limited, distributing farm and garden equipment and irrigation systems as well as highly specialized machinery which would assist farmers to become more efficient in planting and harvesting their crops. In later years, his expertise in the design of irrigation systems placed him in a class by himself. While he made numerous contributions to the agricultural industry in Atlantic Canada over the course of his career, one of his best known achievements was the creation of the Atlantic Farm Mechanization Show, the first being held in 1975. 2005 marked the 30th anniversary of this highly successful trade show in which he played a continuing role until his retirement in 1995. Nominated by the Agricultural Producers of New Brunswick, he was inducted into the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame in 2005. Dick was a man who lived life large, with great style and humor. There are few farm gates in the Maritimes that he did not enter and where he was not received with affection and respect. He valued honesty and integrity in business above all and expected that all who worked with him do the same. He had a keen interest in fly-fishing which he pursued in many Maritime rivers, but never more happily than with his Friends in the Aesculapius Fishing Club in the Miramichi. Predeceased by his wife Jean McOuat MELANSON in 1998, Dick is survived by four children; Anne CROCKER (Myron GOCHNAUER,) Christie (Dan GOODYEAR,) John and Elizabeth (Paul RUSNOCK.) He also leaves eleven grandchildren and one great-granddaughter and his special friend, Francena HUBBARD. He will be greatly missed by the family of whom he was so proud. A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 9, 2006 at 1: 00 p.m. at St. Bernard's Church, 43 Botsford Street, Moncton, New Brunswick. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, those who wish make a donation to the Canadian Diabetes Association or to Moncton head Start (Tel: (506) 858-8252, Fax: (506) 857-3170, E-mail: headstart@ca.nb.aibn.com).

Don't think of them as gone away
Their journey's just begun,
Life holds so many facets
This earth is only one.
Just think of them as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years.
Think how they must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away.
And think of them as living
In the hearts of those they touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost
And they were loved so much.

Margaret GIBSON, Writer: (1948-2006)
Author of Opium Dreams and The Butterfly Ward produced works of singular vision, writes Sandra MARTIN. It was an intense and brilliant output that was too often sidelined by the march of mental illness
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
There were many Margaret GIBSONs and all of them were complicated. She was like a prism that could shimmer with refracted brilliance one moment and then fracture into dangerous shards the next. As a writer, she was like a foreign correspondent reporting from the front lines of insanity, taking readers places where most of us have never been in collections of stories such as The Butterfly Ward and Sweet Poison, screenplays such as Outrageous, Ada and For the Love of Aaron and in her only published novel, Opium Dreams, which won the Chapters/Books in Canada first-novel award in 1997.
Although she self-diagnosed as autistic after she read Donna Williams's memoir, Nobody Nowhere, Ms. GIBSON was probably a paranoid schizophrenic. In one of her "good" periods in the early 1990s she described what it felt like to have a mental illness. "It is not so much that madness… is a muddied eyehole, but rather it is seeing things too sharply, clearer than clear, a light that fills up your eyeholes and is, in the end, blinding with its visions."
Ms. GIBSON worked with some top literary editors, including Ellen SELIGMAN at McClelland and Stewart, Phyllis BRUCE at Harper Collins and Barry CALLAGHAN of Exile Editions. "All writers write out of their experiences, but this was like an open vein," said Mr. CALLAGHAN. "If ever a writer in this country hit on the terrors that seem to strike at women who are defenceless and vulnerable," it was Ms. GIBSON. " She was frightening in her presence and she was frightening in her work because she was really in touch with the madness that was loose inside herself" and by extension, in "metropolitan life." "Losing the words" to describe her terrors was often a signal that her illness was on the march again. And that made knowing Ms. GIBSON a desperate struggle to keep her afloat without being sucked into the whirlpool that was her life. As her loyal friend, Shirley FLAVELLE, said: "She was a 24/7 girl. You could only live with her when you were young."
Margaret Louise GIBSON was the second of five children of Bell Telephone engineer Dane GIBSON and his wife Audrey (neé McCULLOUGH.) She grew up on a small rural property on what was then the eastern edge of Scarborough, Ontario, on land her father, an air force tail gunner in the Second World War, had been able to buy with a veteran's grant. Her older sister Dana was bright, gregarious and an excellent student. Her twin sisters, Lenore and Deirdre, were a younger playful unit. Margaret, or Margie as her family called her, was the solitary dreamy one.
"We were a typical Canadian family except that there was one daughter who was always ill, her whole life," said Deirdre GIBSON, a planner. Margaret GIBSON herself once said that "colours hurt" when she was a child. "A leaf was a kaleidoscope," she said. "Starting kindergarten damn near killed me. But I was never lonely I'm a one-piece band." Puberty is difficult for most adolescents but for Ms. GIBSON it was catastrophic. Always withdrawn, she started slashing her arms and eventually attempted suicide. She spent about a year at the Homewood Health Centre in Guelph, Ontario, experiences that she would later use as a trigger for her fiction. After she was released, her parents sold the beloved family property and moved to a housing development so she could start "over again" in a fresh environment.
The new school was even more disaffecting than the old one, but Margaret did make Friends with two alienated classmates, Shirley FLAVELLE and Craig Russell EADIE. He later became well known as the female impersonator, Craig RUSSELL. A bisexual, he was addicted to drug and drinks and died of an Aids-related stroke in 1990.
In September of 1971, Ms. GIBSON married Stuart GILBOORD, a young man she had met briefly six years earlier through her father. "She was damn interesting to talk with," Mr. GILBOORD said, adding that she was an attractive woman who wore heavy makeup as a defence against the world. Their son Aaron was born on November 22, 1972.
At the time, Ms. GIBSON's psychiatrist was encouraging her to write as therapy. "I would come home from work and we would talk for three or four hours about her writing," said Mr. GILBOORD. Her concentration was all-consuming and obsessive and she used phrases that were brilliant, but the process was "draining."
Mr. GILBOORD took some of his wife's stories to a script supervisor he knew at TVOntario. She showed them to Michael MacKLEM of Oberon Press in Ottawa. Ms. GIBSON's stories subsequently appeared in Oberon's annual Best Canadian Stories anthologies and in a solo collection, The Butterfly Ward, under her married name, Margaret Gibson GILBOORD. (She and Mr. GILBOORD, who now works for a call centre, divorced when their son was a toddler.)
Reviews were exultant. William FRENCH, then literary editor of The Globe and Mail, described her as a "writer of burning intensity and rare vision, an accomplished explorer of hidden caves of the mind." This debut shared the City of Toronto Book Award in 1977 with Margaret Atwood's Lady Oracle.
Meanwhile, Ms. GIBSON's story Making It (from The Butterfly Ward) about her Friendship with Craig RUSSELL was made into the low-budget film Outrageous. Starring Mr. RUSSELL as himself and Hollis McLAREN as Ms. GIBSON, it was the hit of the 1977 Toronto film festival.
Former Chatelaine editor Rona Maynard was a young writer at Flare magazine at the time. Intrigued by both Ms. GIBSON and The Butterfly Ward, she began writing a profile of the "hot" writer. "She had a deep Lauren Bacall voice, kohl-rimmed eyes, an air of world-weary glamour," smoked long black cigarettes in a holder and "had a burning passion for language unlike anything I have ever seen," said Ms. Maynard.
The two women became Friends, but when the profile was about to be published, Ms. GIBSON had her lawyer send a threatening letter to the magazine, and "so she dropped out of my life." At the time, Ms. GIBSON was also immersed in a bitter custody battle with her former husband. She turned some of that experience into Sweet Poison, a collection of stories published by Phyllis Bruce at HarperCollins. Another story was turned into the television movie, For the Love of Aaron.
Mr. GILBOORD provides a convincing anti-story to Ms. GIBSON's claims of abuse, saying that he and his father-in-law were in constant communication with each other and with child-welfare officials trying to protect Aaron and manage Ms. GIBSON's erratic behaviour.
"She tried the best she could to raise me," said Aaron GILBOORD, who is now 33 and living with his wife and three sons in Manitoba, where he works as a juvenile counsellor with young offenders. He left home when he was 16, but remained in touch with his mother and his father. Ms. GIBSON wrote a poem about her son, when he was 5, saying in part, "and to phone the doctor when I a.m. crazed and always you bring my pill bottles/offering them up with renewed hope each time." The poem appeared in Aurora: New Canadian Writing, edited by Morris Wolfe. By the late 1980s, Ms. GIBSON was living in a subsidized unit in a housing co-op. That's how she met her second husband, Juris RASA, an architectural draughtsman who was living in the same development. Apparently, she showed up at his door one day to ask for bandages because her fingers were bleeding from banging on the keys on her typewriter. Eventually, they moved in together and married. He helped her learn to use a computer and to make the transition from short stories to the longer form of the novel.
Her literary Friends, including the late Timothy Findlay and his partner, screenwriter William Whitehead, and journalist June Callwood helped her get grants to support her writing and introduced her to agent Dean Cooke, who agreed to represent her in the early 1990s. He believes that Mr. RASA made it possible for her to write Opium Dreams, the novel that Ellen Seligman published at McClelland and Stewart.
"I was always amazed by her stamina and staying power because I anticipated the editing of the book would be hard for her," said Ms. Seligman, who came to treasure their long conversations on the telephone. "I think writing sustained her, more so than any other form of nourishment."
The novel was a literary success, but Ms. GIBSON was sinking again into mental illness. She and Mr. RASA separated in the late 1990s after she repeatedly accused him of trying to murder her. He died about a year ago. Ms. Maynard had reconnected with Ms. GIBSON in the mid 1990s during one of her many episodes of instability and formed an unofficial support group with Mr. Cooke, Mr. Wolfe and Ms. Callwood. "She was getting farther and farther away from reality," said Ms. Maynard.
About four years ago, Ms. GIBSON was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. She was seeing an oncologist, but stopped chemotherapy, probably because she was afraid of the side effects of her complex combination of medications.
Margaret Louise GIBSON was born in Scarborough, Ontario, on June 4, 1948. She died of metastasized breast cancer in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on February 25, 2006. She was 57. She is survived by her son Aaron, his wife Jennifer LAMBERT, their sons Logan, Drew and Ayden, and her three sisters Dana, Lenore and Deirdre and their families.

CAVE, Richard " Dick," P.Eng. (August 29, 1943-February 26, 2006)
son of Frank and Hilda (née HOWE) CAVE
Peacefully, at La Farm in Duncan, Ontario and surrounded by his loving family and Friends, both at home and abroad, both with us and in heaven, our amazing husband, dad, guardian angel, grand-dad, uncle, cherished friend and valued colleague, passed graciously into a space filled with beauty, light, energy and peace for safekeeping, until we are all reunited. He leaves his adoring wife, Sally LEPPARD, partner of 18 years. By his side, throughout his 4 year battle with cancer, and for always, are his treasured and adored children - Emma (and Brian), Steve (and Kerry), Kate (and Kris,) Liz NIELD (née McHARDY, and Jim,) Louise (and Chris,) Jamie McHARDY, and his precious and beloved granddaughter, Sarah Grace. His sister Sue and husband Dave WHITEHEAD came from Cornwall, England to be by his side. He will always be loved by his special extended family - Sue CORKE, Jenny, Joel and Gabrielle HELMAN, Dave LEPPARD, Luce KENNEDY, Helen, Paul and Daniel RUSSELL, Jeremy and Amanda, Katie, Simon, Guy and Heidi, Miranda and Toby, Bob and Joan, Shylah and Austin, Sylvie, Bernhard and Baby Yannick, Mark, Barbara, Julian and Clee (and children), and beloved parents-in-law John and Jocey LEPPARD, and all of our children's dearest Friends ("the Urban Terrorists"). Dick's humour, wit, tall tales and strength of character will be sadly missed by his many great Friends. Throughout his last few weeks, you have helped us enormously with snow plowing, dishwashing, great food and wine, books, fine company, paintings, fun and laughter, and gifts of love and kindness too numerous to mention. Dick had a career full of achievements and 'firsts'. After emigrating from Derby, England as a Civil Engineer in 1969, he worked with Kilbourn Engineering until 1984 when he founded the Ontario-based R. Cave and Associates Engineering Inc. There he nurtured a tradition of creative, pragmatic and holistic engineering solutions to Canada's waste management and ecological problems. He finished his career with Trow Consulting in Brampton. Our family's grateful thanks go to those who cared for Dick in his last stage of life - the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital, the Owen Sound Community Care Access Centre home care team and nurses Lorraine, Royanne, Sue and Laurie, and "spa lady" Sharon, Dr. and Mrs. Tony ROWLINSON, Joyce STRAITON, Dr. Jennifer KNOX and Bettina of Princess Margaret Hospital, and Dr. Marwan FAKIH of Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Your safety net was invaluable and gave us enormous hope over the last year and kindness and caring in the last few weeks. Dick is in our hearts, spirits, souls and minds, and his huge presence will be forever with us. "the candle burned out long before the legend ever did" -- E.J.A. memorial to Dick will be held at Bethany Church of the Nazarene, Trowbridge Street West in Meaford, Ontario on Monday, March 6, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. As your expression of sympathy, donations to the Georgian Triangle Hospice would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford N4L 1B9 (519-538-1320) to whom arrangements have been entrusted.

Anna RUSSELL, 94: Opera parodist
Singer Anna RUSSELL got start in T.O.
Took cheeky shows around the globe
By Olivia WARD, Staff Reporter with files from Associated Press
The fat lady has sung.
After a dazzling, often zany career spanning six decades, singer and comedian Anna RUSSELL died Wednesday at 94 in the Australian seaside town of Bateman's Bay -- half a world away from her former home in Unionville, Ontario
"She went very peacefully," her adopted daughter, Dierdre PRUSSAK told reporters in Australia, where her mother had joined her for the last months of her life.
But peaceful is the last word to describe Canadian-born RUSSELL's lively career, which included sold-out performances in New York's Carnegie Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall, and with the Canadian Opera Company -- as well as global tours featuring her own saucy satirical songs and poetry.
"She was somebody who believed that serious music doesn't have to wear a frown," says Toronto Star critic William LITTLER.
A naturalized Canadian, RUSSELL gave farewell performances in her 70s while living in the Unionville retirement community of Heritage Village, adjacent to a street named for her, Anna Russell Way. Married and divorced twice, her second husband was the late Canadian artist Charles GOLDHAMMER.
"I fly a lot… and the airport is closer than it would be if I lived in Toronto," she once told the Star's columnist Lotta DEMPSEY, as she continued a head-spinning schedule of European and American engagements in her golden years.
Born in London, Ontario, of a Canadian mother and a British military officer father, RUSSELL grew up in England lamenting her less-than-perfect looks and voice -- the result of a smashed nose in a field hockey accident while at boarding school.
"Certain notes came out a yodel," she explained, telling of a career that veered from classical to comedic after the voice-altering event. But she went on to study at the elite Royal College of Music, and even snaffled a short and disastrous role in the Pietro Mascagni opera Cavalleria Rusticana.
Her one performance ended when she slipped onstage and crashed against the set, which collapsed. As the orchestra exploded with laughter, RUSSELL was packed off in disgrace. She then debuted as a folk singer on British Broadcasting Corporation radio, and later appeared on Canadian radio in a variety of shows.
She described some of her misadventures in her autobiographical books, The Power of Being a Positive Stinker, and I'm Not Making This Up, You Know.
The latter title was scooped from one of her most famous lines, taken from a breathless half-hour tour de force condensation of Richard Wagner's Ring of the Nibelungs, still used by serious students as a guide to the German composer's masterwork.
But it was in Toronto that RUSSELL got her start, when she returned to Canada with her mother after her father's death at the onset of World War 2.
"She was taken on by Sir Ernest MacMillan for his popular Christmas Box concerts with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra," says LITTLER. "He had a great sense of humour, and he saw her talent right away. She was a big hit."
Like vocal satirist Victor Borge, RUSSELL became a sought-after performer worldwide. Her recordings as well as performances were hailed as gems, and later as classics. In one, RUSSELL accompanied herself on the piano, offering lessons in "how to write your own Gilbert and Sullivan opera." But she also brought down the house during the Cold War with a mock-tragic Russian folk song featuring a chorus of "da, nyet, da, nyet."
In one of her best-known riffs, she explains Wagner's Das Rheingold, in which Erda tells the god Wotan, weiche, weiche -- "be careful. She then bears him eight daughters."
No musical nationality escaped what critics called "her laser-beam sense of humour."
RUSSELL's defiant floor-kicking flamenco dancer and her ultra-virginal British choral soprano delighted European audiences as much as those in Canada. A parody of Bizet's Carmen, with the feisty heroine groping for her deck of fortune-telling cards in her voluminous low-cut bodice, won her standing ovations.
Even RUSSELL's Ring Cycle performance won admiration from the notoriously combative Wagner family, which invited her to perform it at their musical shrine of Bayreuth, and included it in a video of the opera.
Best known for her vocal performances, RUSSELL jokingly described herself as "the Rip Van Winkle of Toronto -- a bit decrepit but not yet passed away."
"I still have one of the great voices of the decayed -- a roar rather than screech, in a comfy basso nonprofundo," she told the Star in 1977.
Her comic opera roles include the Duchess of Crackenthorp in the 1977 Canadian Opera Company production of Daughter of the Regiment, and the witch in Hansel and Gretel at the New York and San Francisco operas.
But RUSSELL also played a variety of instruments, including the piano and ukelele. "She once came on stage with a bagpipe, and took it apart as a lesson on how to play it," recalls LITTLER.
RUSSELL took to the stage, founding Grow Productions, which presented Victorian drama Lady Audley's Secret at the New York World's Fair in 1964, and played a leading role in Noël Coward's comedy Blithe Spirit. Catching a wave of popularity, she composed, wrote and performed her own comedy material for Columbia Records.
RUSSELL's cheeky style won over audiences when she was well into her 70s. Giving advice on how to be a successful singer, she quipped that although a glorious voice was important, "it helps to be an independently wealthy, politically motivated, back-stabbing bitch."
