SCHILDT, Melanie
You are our special angel, our daughter and still our pride and joy.
The Lord wrapped His arms around you and took you by the hand
He said, "Come with Me Melanie, to God's Eternal land
The years have passed so quickly and still we miss you so
There are times we can hardly wait till it's our time to go
We know God picks the time and place to take our loved ones home
But it is so hard to accept the loss when its one of your very own
We know others have lost their loved ones and this we can't explain
We cannot judge what happens when tears and questions start
We only see what is visible, but God sees into the heart
Our smiles try to hide our heartaches and we say we are doing fine
But to those who have experienced death know how it changes you in time
Your dreams didn't get accomplished, you didn't get to raise any kids
But you left a lasting impression on all you said and did
Please always know we love you and no one can ever take your place.
- Love you "Missy", Mom and Dad.

SCHILDT, Melanie Linda
To our sister Melanie Linda SCHILDT August 1986 to October 2001.
Why God?
The first thing that we asked God, was just the reason why?
When He took our precious sister beyond the stars and sky
As we held on to her body We started to scream and cry
Was this God so really kind as many people were making out?
But our anger then turned to sadness as we held her in our arms
She was still our beautiful sister truly an angel with all her charms
It was then we started to wonder as we wiped the tears from our eyes
Was an angel needed elsewhere and is that the reason why?
Love you Melanie
- Andrew and Adam

SCHILDT, Melanie
In loving memory of our granddaughter Melanie who passed away October 6, 2001.
Each morning that we wake
We know that you are gone
No one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on
Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it means to lose you
No one will ever know
Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
They say that time heals everything
But we know it isn't so
It hurts as much today
As it did five years ago
- Forever loved and missed Nanny and Poppa CARNEY.

In loving memory of Melanie SCHILDT October 6, 2001.
No one could ever know
How much I miss you so
The pain in my heart
Continues to grow
I'm never going to let you go
You'll always be with me
Even on this day
This day 5 years ago
You were taken away
It happened so fast
It was so hard to grasp
You were gone in a flash
Everyone told me it gets better with time
But it doesn't, it gets so much harder
It will never be the same
My head still spins
when I think of that day
My tears still fall
Every time it hits me that you're gone
My heart still aches
When I think of what you've missed and would have done
No one could ever know How much I love you so.
- Missing you every day Mel!
Love Nicole.

SCHILDT, Melanie
In memory of Melanie SCHILDT, tragically taken from us October 6, It is hard to believe that it was 5 years ago that we lost our loving niece and cousin. We still expect you to walk in the door&hellip
You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray
That she'll come back
Or you can open your eyes
And see all she's left
Your heart can be empty
Because you can 't see her
Or you can be full of the love you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow
And live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow
Because of yesterday
You can remember her
And only that she's gone
Or you can cherish the memory
And let it live on
You can cry and close your mind
Be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she'd want:
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
We have cried as many tears as the number of days we have spent missing you and take great comfort in knowing that you are here with us. We feel you around us in all that we see and do, that tingle on our cheeks, the middle of the night wakeup call, our favourite movie. All these things are like your arms wrapping around us, like a great big bear hug, that we never want to end, to protect us and keep us warm, just like your favourite blue sweater.
- Missing you lots, sending you hugs and kisses, Uncle Buck (Ken), Aunt B (Brenda) Lisa and Eric

SCHILDT, Melanie
It's been quite some time now since we all have been with our sweet Melanie. They always say, "Time heals everything" but in this case I feel as though time only makes me miss her more. Everybody's lives are changing and I find myself thinking of how different things would be if she hadn't of left us that awful day. I wish she were here to experience all that life gives us. I wish she could have been by my side at my wedding, I wish she could have been there when my first son was born and I wish she was here experiencing all of this for herself. It hurts me to continue thinking like this, but I know in my heart she was right there beside me every step of the way enjoying it just as much as I a.m. She would want us to live life to its fullest And sometimes I can't help but wonder who Lucas is talking to when I hear him cooing and laughing away. I bet it's our guardian Angel Mel making faces at him! I want everybody to take a second now and look back at all the happy times with Mel and listen to her voice as she laughs and feel the warmth of her arms around us. Melanie, you will be always remembered and never ever forgotten. Best friend forever Chick! Love Dude,
(Jamie-Lee HIGGINSON)

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.

GIFFELS, Christiana Julia
By David John SCHLEICH, Page A22
Mother, poet. Born May 13, 1927, in Hamilton, Ontario Died May 28, in Chesley, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 79.
Unlike Chaucer's famous Wife of Bath whom she admired and who outlived five husbands, Chris GIFFELS outlived only two. The first was a handsome, sailor-salesman. The second worked a lifetime at Polymer in Sarnia and was a devoted family man. They represented the contrary imperatives that propelled her through life. Like her literary hero, she always said that she was on a pilgrimage. Like many women of her generation, she had had little formal education, but all her life she hungered for models and ideas to help transcend the hand life dealt her. Always she yearned to discover and express her intense creativity and considerable raw intelligence. Her marriages she likened to bookends framing her life; in the middle, though, "I ran my own show."
Her parents were from Liverpool and imposed a strict, "unconscious" Protestant upbringing. And then, "like fire and powder/Which, as they kiss, consume" (she loved Shakespeare, too), along came Paul, the handsome Romanian-German immigrant Canadian navy sailor "hunk" with whom she had seven children in eight years, shocking both sets of parents. It started at the legendary Wonderland dance pavilion in London, Ontario, during the Second World War, where men on leave would partner up, jiving to the Big Bands. She was with her sailor for 10 years. "I was a stupid kid, but oh could he dance, the old goat," she said more than once.
Painfully, he danced with many other women too and their marriage inevitably collapsed. Even so, she'd show the picture of their wedding day in 1944, he in his sailor's uniform, and she a striking 17-year-old beauty who craved excitement and change. And then she'd show the wedding pictures of her and Bill 20 years later. (Sometimes, she'd show another picture, taken in between, of seven children hanging off an exhausted young woman of 27 who needed to flee to survive.)
Where she found the courage or the depths of her despair, we can only speculate, but she left her first husband and their kids behind and went on an unusual odyssey for a woman of her time and adopted Catholic faith. An eighth child, a boy, was born but died soon after in Saskatchewan. She wandered alone around North America for a number of years, at one point working as a cook in two lumber camps in British Columbia, and at another waitressing in a "greasy spoon" in San Francisco, all the while carrying the guilt and stress of having left her children and husband. Eventually she returned to southern Ontario and married Bill GIFFELS, settling in Brigden. Little by little she re-engaged with her own children and, with Bill, raised four more. Bill always recruited her to be the manager of their northern camps during hunting trips; she was a superb organizer. She became a published poet at age 60, declaring that if she had it to do again, "I'd try to be a writer like Alice Munro."
In the end, her body yielded to a lifelong load of kids, husbands, work, and a numbing fear that she had missed herself. In her final months she told tales of adventure that blended fact and fantasy with an extraordinary narrative energy. She also quit hiding a long-confined bitter edge, blaming herself for "a mixed-up life."
The last time I saw her she wouldn't eat her dinner. Instead she ordered and finished off (fast) a bowl of ice cream unsuitable for any chronic diabetic, defying her caregivers with "Like it or lump it." She was worried about her 37 cats that day, too. They lived with her in her self-described "cat house." Chris GIFFELS's spirit plays out in the lives of more than two dozen grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She is buried beside her second husband, miles from her first.
David John SCHLEICH is Chris's No. 3 son.
