PRESTON, Sheila Delia K.
By Ann SILVERSIDES, Page A16
Executive medical secretary, mother, friend. Born June 29, 1922, in Howth, Ireland. Died September 18, 2005, in Toronto, of complications after a fall, aged 83.
Sheila never knew who her father was, but speculated that she was the illegitimate daughter of a murdered Irish patriot. This wasn't necessarily just the romantic daydream of a woman who was never told the identity of her father. After all, her mother Delia's close Friends included William O'BRIEN, the Irish member of Parliament, journalist and author (1852-1928), and his wife Sophie, also an author. William and Sophie were Sheila's godparents, and she and her mother spent holidays with the O'BRIEN's at their home in Mallow. After William died, and Delia married Joseph O'ROURKE, Sheila continued to spend most of her boarding school holidays with Sophie, who dedicated one of her books to Sheila.
While working at the War Office in London, Sheila fell in love with a Canadian, Royal Canadian Air Force pilot Lou H. PARKER, and made plans to return to Canada with him. PARKER was shot down and killed in the spring of 1945, but remained the love of her life. A black and white photo of the two of them in uniform, standing in a doorway, was on her bedside table after her death. An immaculate and stylish dresser all her life, Sheila rarely went out without her Royal Canadian Air Force wing pin on her lapel, in memory of her great love.
Sheila married another Canadian on the rebound, and came to Canada when she was pregnant with her first child, daughter Leueen. That union fell apart several years after their son, Kevin, was born with Down syndrome. Sheila never remarried.
She worked as a secretary in Chalk River, Ontario, and then, in the early 1960s, with my father at the Addiction Research Foundation in Toronto. That association let to her lifelong Friendship with our family, with many holiday visits to our log house near Perth, Ontario
Sheila was fiercely intelligent with an extraordinary memory that made lesser mortals (like me) feel woefully ignorant. She kept up to date about current affairs and was a student of history especially military, particularly aviation. She scribbled margin notes in her many books about the Second World War, commenting on (and often disputing) the facts.
She was fierce in her devotion to Kevin, who, as an adult, lived in a Toronto group-home until his death in 2001. It saddened and angered Sheila that some of Kevin's group-home peers were virtually abandoned by their families.
After working for physicians at several Toronto hospitals, Sheila ended her career at St. Michael's Hospital. Family practice residents of the late 1970s to late 1980s will no doubt remember her organizational skills and her insistence on good manners.
In retirement, Sheila made several trips home to Ireland and was interviewed by Irish radio about her memories of her famous godparents.
An early tenant of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood, Sheila spent the last 15 years of her life in subsidized housing for seniors in east-end Toronto. She was grateful for the housing and railed against the "sheer stupidity" of politicians who chose not to understand that adequate housing is the key prerequisite to health and well being. She wrote about these concerns to politicians and media figures, and gave a significant portion of her limited income to charities she approved.
Sheila didn't suffer fools, but was noted for her small courtesies and thank-you notes to those she appreciated.
Sheila was predeceased her son and is survived by many Friends as well as her sister Margaret, daughter Leueen, son-in-law Bill and grandchildren Michael, Kathleen and Patrick.
Ann is a friend of Sheila PRESTON.

Hilary KILBOURN, 53: Creative to the end
Adored daughter of rebel alderman Bill KILBOURN
Sensitive painter 'could capture people' in her art
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
She was born into Toronto royalty, certainly its establishment, a statement that would not have made her wince because it honours her father.
And Hilary KILBOURN worshipped her father.
When Bill KILBOURN died in 1995, "it was as if the history of our lives was passing in front of us," Rosedale member of Parliament Bill GRAHAM said at the time. It meant that and more to KILBOURN's second child, who was so grief-stricken she was hospitalized for two days.
Passionate about Toronto, Bill KILBOURN was a rebel alderman on city council in the '70s, David Crombie's time, when Toronto had an exciting future and its politicians the courage to fight developers to preserve its past.
Founding chair of York University's humanities department, author of 14 books, with Friends and admirers in the usually disparate worlds of the arts, politics, academia and media, he was often dishevelled as he rode his bike through Toronto winter traffic without an overcoat. But at the same time, he helped stop the Spadina Expressway and the planned Pickering Airport.
He lived with his wife, Elizabeth, an Anglican minister, and five children in a rambling three-storey house in south Rosedale with a dining room painted a shocking black for a while, modern art on all the walls, wolf skins on the living room floor, singsongs round the piano, political discussions around the table and hockey on the rink in the backyard.
"It was magical," said Francesca Mallin PARKER, whose family lived in the next block and who became fast Friends with the KILBOURN sisters, Hilary and Philippa. "We were a gang of three."
Though she was the youngest, Hilary was their leader because she had the verve, the artistic passion and talent. There was always a painting on an easel set up in the bedroom and playroom on the third floor that she shared with her sister.
"Often her zeal for artistic expression was unable to be contained and spilled over onto the walls and ceilings of her house," recalled George HATHAWAY, who moved in across the street in 1976.
It was always understood within her family, and by her Friends, that Hilary was -- and was going to be -- an artist. "Right from the beginning she was always drawing -- princesses and witches. Dad kept a lot of them," said Philippa or Pippa, her sister. (There were also three sons: Nicholas, Timothy and Michael.)
Their father adored Hilary, taking her along to official functions if his wife was unavailable. An intellectual descended from prominent Toronto industrialists, he was thrilled to have an artist in his family. "They were very much soulmates," said Pippa.
Tall, lively and lovely -- with dimples, fair hair and an entourage Hilary was a sophisticated presence in the halls of Jarvis C.I., her poetry and art winning awards and filling the school magazine and yearbooks.
"I felt lucky that she accepted my Friendship. I was in awe of her," said writer Ann SILVERSIDES. "It was all rather exotic to me, a kind of J.D. Salinger-ish household full of brilliant individuals."
Activists, politicians, artists, people were often in their living room -- even Pierre Trudeau swung by on his first campaign to be prime minister.
Hilary thrived on the excitement on the home front as well as from her own social whirl of poetry readings and formal dances. There was every reason to believe a fine future lay ahead of her studying art and drama at York University's brand new fine arts program.
But Hilary's "incredibly fertile existence," as her sister described it, began to crumble when she was 22 and spending time in Findhorn Community, a religious retreat in Scotland. She came home and was hospitalized after experiencing her first episode of mania, now known as bipolar disorder.
It had been building for a while. Her friend Mallin PARKER remembers seeing "an episode of misery like I've never seen" when Hilary, in university, sank to the floor, weeping. "She was crying and hysterical and in such emotional pain that literally she couldn't stand."
Her illness dogged her the rest of her life as she fought it and fought to retain her creativity. She gained a lot of weight as a result of her medications. She was in and out of many hospitals and almost as many apartments until 1983, when her father got her a house on the Toronto Islands.
There she found her place. Her home was one of the original island houses, a blue cottage with purple trim and a bathtub out back on Wyandot Ave. Typically, there were usually two or three other people living there with her. She was subsisting on a government disability pension, but she felt blessed to have her island home and therefore obligated to share it.
In a community of characters, everybody knew her -- outgoing, friendly, bumming a cigarette, riding her bike, pointing her video camera anywhere she could record another moment of life in her community. In turn, they kept an eye out for her, knowing when she wasn't taking her medication, helping her during her ensuing mania and at times psychotic episodes.
In 1994, she produced a half-hour film with original music about life on the island, past and present. "She would come here, hands shaking, and video-film The old still photographs I had," said self-styled island archivist Albert FULTON. "And I was amazed at what a professional production it was."
Her father died January 4, 1995, three days before her film was aired on a local cable channel.
She was always sketching, but she was extraordinarily modest about her art, often giving it away because she valued it so little. Her portraits were vivid, passionate. Pippa KILBOURN says Hilary's best work was a larger-than-life portrait of their father looking like rebel leader William Lyon Mackenzie. "She could capture people. She had such sensitivity she could penetrate the personality," she said.
On Thursday, February 2, she died in her sleep. She was 53.
Her funeral wasn't held at the island's church, St. Andrew-by-the-Lake. Instead her mother, Pippa and brothers, and several hundred of her Friends gathered at St. James Cathedral. Hilary KILBOURN loved the island and that church, but it was too small and there was no doubt that the cathedral was really the appropriate place to say goodbye to her. For it was there that several hundred people had also gathered, back in 1995, to mourn the passing of her father.

Meaford's Edith STEWARD/STEWART/STUART was Ontario's first female justice of the peace
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Edith I. - Who left us to be with God on November 23rd I remember the day I met you and the day God made you mine.
I remember the day God took you and will til the end of the time.
We made our vows together until death do us part,
but the day God took you from me, my whole world fell apart.
Sometimes I think I'm dreaming I can't believe it's true,
that I can go on living when I no longer have you.
And the memories of the happy years when we were together
the joys, the tears, the love, the fears,
and when I'm sad and lonely and everything goes wrong,
I seem to her you whisper, cheer up and carry on.
Each time I see your picture you seem to smile and say,
don't cry, I'm only sleeping. We'll be together again some day.
Forever loved, terribly missed.

ROWNTREE, Gideon Torrance, D.D.S. (1923-2006)
A private family service and cremation have taken place at his request. Gid died at home with grace, after a long illness from colorectal cancer. He was a 'renaissance man' with many talents beside his professional life in dentistry and music. Music has been his second career, fostered first during his high school years at Humberside Collegiate. A lifetime member of the musician's union, he played in many bands and formed his own swing band. For over 60 years he played around Toronto and his second home in Muskoka. His favourite places for his own band were The Palais Royale in Toronto and Windermere House in Muskoka. His last musical job was for Valentine's Day of this year. He did most of his own band arrangements. He played many instruments and recorded all the parts of an arrangement. He produced over a dozen different CD's, some with 24 different parts. He enjoyed giving these to Friends and to guests at our cottage B&B in Muskoka. During his years at University of Toronto he was a director as well as a band leader for Dentantics, and played in the U. of T. band at football games. His university years were interrupted by World War 2 - first as a member of the 2nd Canadian Army Course at U. of T., then with the Royal Canadian Artillery overseas. After the war he returned to U. of T. to graduate in Dentistry in 1951. His dental career included several years as a clinical demonstrator at the Faculty of Dentistry. He will be remembered also for his many years of compassionate dental care at Runnymede Chronic Care Hospital. He maintained his own dental practice for over 30 years in Islington. He married Ruth, the girl across the road in 1948 and would have celebrated 58 years together this June. For Ruth, he will forever be the 'love of my life' and for his three dearly loved daughters, Lenore, Beth and Patricia, their memories will always be for a kind father who enjoyed building boats at the cottage and could fix anything. Gid was the younger son of the late Doctor Harold Lee ROWNTREE and Louise née SILVERTHORN) ROWNTREE. An older brother, Harold Silverthorn ROWNTREE died in his teen years in 1937 of scarlet fever. His family invites Friends to an afternoon of musical memories at Islington Golf and Country Club, on Sunday, April 23rd from 2-5 p.m., 45 Riverbank Drive, Islington.(turn west on Riverbank from Islington Ave, one block north of Dundas St.). Gid had hoped to have another of his cellar sessions, so his family would be pleased if some of his musical buddies felt free to join the trio for his last session. Although too many to name here, we wish to thank all the kind Friends, relatives, care workers and nurses, who helped us at the end, especially Doctor David SWARTZ, the home care palliative team, and Thornbrook Home Care. Rather than donations or flowers in Gid's memory, his family asks only that you support 'Live Music' at every opportunity. Gid's musical philosophy was 'Play for me, not at me, make me smile and tap my foot.'
