STEPHANIC, Helena (HOCHSTRAUSS)
By Ellen McNEILL and Darcy McNEILL, Page A16
Mother, grandmother, lover of winter. Born July 12, 1906 in Kukujevci, in what is now Serbia and Montenegro. Died October 19, 2005, in London, Ontario, of complications from a fall, aged 99.
When Helena HOCHSTRAUSS was 6, she was so ill that she was measured for a coffin. At that time, she certainly wasn't expected to live for another 93 years. So much of her history occurred in tumultuous times and yet she maintained a passion for life and adventure and displayed an incredible strength of will.
While the First World War did not have a large impact on Helena's day-to-day life as a young child, the national and political landscape changed dramatically beneath her feet. The part of Austro-Hungary in which she lived became part Yugoslavia. An independent woman, Helena studied bookkeeping at a time when many young women did not pursue education. It was during this time that she met her husband, Louis Octavio STEPHANIC. He was waiting on the street corner for her every day when she finished her classes and would not take no for an answer; eventually he wore her down and she agreed to go out with him. They were married in 1926 and had two daughters, Zorah and Deena (our mother).
When the Second World War began, the family's lives, like many others, were irreparably altered. One of first bombings of the war was on a hotel in Belgrade that was known as the place where diplomats and political dignitaries stayed. Helena's sister Cecilia worked there as a telephone operator and was killed in that bombing. Louis became ill and died from tuberculosis. Deena also spent time in a sanatorium with tuberculosis. Helena always felt an extra strong responsibility to her younger daughter due to Deena's chronic ill health; because she was unable to better provide for her and nourish her, and because of the loss of her father at so young an age.
At the end of the war, Helena decided to take her family away. They travelled on foot and in caravans; from one refugee camp to another, taking rides when they were available until they got to Israel where they remained for a few years. Deena immigrated to Canada in 1958, and Helena followed in 1962 to join Deena and her new husband and family.
By that time, our family was living in Haliburton, Ontario Helena worked her way into that small rural Ontario community amazingly well. In no time she had many Friends and a part-time job as a bookkeeper for the local plumber. For a new Canadian not from a northern climate, Helena loved the winter. The snow, the ice, the look and the texture of the world under freshly fallen snow all appealed to her. She continued to go for long walks well into her eighties. She lived by herself, in her own apartment, until her death.
Helena had strong opinions on many things (most things, actually) and she certainly had no hesitation in sharing them with the rest of us. She was a proud Canadian and became engrossed in Canadian politics. She kept current on local events, those things that affected the people she loved, and also on global trends and issues. She was always looking forward to what lay ahead, and rarely reflecting back on what had been, even in the face of enormous personal loss.
Photographs of her as a young woman reveal a special glint her eyes - a characteristic that can still be seen in pictures taken of her just weeks before her death. It's not so much a mischievous glint but her sharp blue eyes are twinkling, her lips pursed after a short intake of breath, head cocked slightly, finger raised, just before she refuted a statement or added another salient point.
Ellen and Darcy are Helena's grandchildren.

Ian SINCLAIR, Last Of The Railway Titans: (1913-2006)
He ran Canadian Pacific almost single-handedly, operating the giant company at a time when it was still the most powerful corporate force in the country
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
He was Canadian Pacific's last titan. Ian SINCLAIR ran Canadian Pacific from 1969 to 1981, a time when it was still the most powerful company in the country and owned everything from the railway, a shipping line and a hotel chain, to an airline and oil-and-gas assets. In 1988, he was identified as one of six Lords of the Line, a book by writer-historians David Cruise and Alison Griffiths that put him right up there with the first presidents of Canadian Pacific Railway: George STEPHEN, William VAN HORNE, Thomas SHAUGHNESSY, Edward BEATTY and Norris Roy (Buck) CRUMP.
Ian SINCLAIR was a tough and demanding boss at Canadian Pacific Enterprises. "We don't go to work at Canadian Pacific, we report for duty," he once said and cracked down on office workers goofing off in the middle of the day. He did not want to see them loitering around the concourse of Windsor Station, the head office of the Canadian Pacific Railway. In his view, being seen in the favourite public gathering spot of the railway employees outside of lunch hour or coffee breaks could be a firing offence. Later in his career, he was known as Big Julie, but it's unlikely anyone ever called him that to his face.
Unlike many corporate leaders of the day, Mr. SINCLAIR was outspoken on public issues and even a bit of a Canadian nationalist. He got on so well with prime minister Pierre Trudeau that he was named to the Senate after he retired in 1984.
The empire Ian SINCLAIR ruled over had started out the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Canadian Pacific Railway picked up a lot of its assets in the 19th century, including a land grant of 25 million acres to build the railway. Much of the land was sold to settlers, but oil was later found on the railway's properties. Hotels were built along the way, as well as a shipping line to bring immigrants and goods to Canada. By the time he left, the railway no longer took passengers, the airline was gone and the company had strayed so far from its roots that it had invested in huge swathes of forest. The trees were a mistake but, even so, Ian SINCLAIR had increased the assets of the Canadian Pacific Railway and made it easier for the company to be broken into five pieces in 2003.
Mr. SINCLAIR rose to prominence under Buck CRUMP. Both men were tough and confident leaders of Canada's greatest company. Mr. SINCLAIR joined Canadian Pacific Railway in 1942 in Winnipeg. His father had come from Scotland to work in the repair shops of the Grand Trunk Railway, one of the railways that made up rival Canadian National. Ian SINCLAIR went to the University of Manitoba, where he took a degree in economics and then another in law.
His first job at the Canadian Pacific Railway was as an assistant solicitor and he quickly made his mark. Four years later, he moved to head office at Windsor Station in Montreal. Mr. SINCLAIR was known as the Perry Mason of railway law, for his resemblance to the burly television lawyer and for his dogged defence of railway interests in a series of royal commissions and tribunals.
At that time, it was still a railway world. Mr. SINCLAIR and other top executives would travel across the country in private railway cars kept on sidings in Windsor Station. Ian SINCLAIR straddled the era of the steam engine and the diesel locomotive a struggle with the unions over who was to man the trains was one of his great victories.
The job, as he saw it, was to get rid of firemen. Steam engines required an engineer to drive the train and a fireman to feed the boiler. With the end of steam and the introduction of diesel electric trains, there was no need for firemen, but the union contract still called for them. It was a textbook case of feather-bedding. Mr. SINCLAIR won his case against the unions and the firemen were gone. In 1960, he became vice-president of law at Canadian Pacific Railway. He was next put in charge of the operating and traffic departments, so that by the time he was made president in 1969 there wasn't a piece of the railway he didn't know. He was 52.
Mr. SINCLAIR was a textbook workaholic who read the Globe and Mail and Report on Business first thing every morning and loved his job. "Some people may think that work is distasteful, but not I. I'm very happy when I work," said Mr. SINCLAIR. To him, running Canadian Pacific Railway was a group exercise. "Sometimes, we have our disappointments and we back off and take another look. Then we solve something -- when we make it good -- that's when work's most enjoyable."There were many problems to solve at the start of his reign. Canadian Pacific Railway wanted to get out of the passenger business. People were using highways and planes to get around and railways across the continent were dying. As a result, Via Rail was born as a merger of the passenger services of Canadian Pacific and Canadian National.
That did not mean there weren't profitable parts of the business. In 1958, Canadian Pacific Oil and Gas, the predecessor to PanCanadian Petroleum -- later Encana -- was formed with the purpose of reassembling the land, which had been leased to oil companies.
Four years later, Mr. CRUMP created a subsidiary called Canadian Pacific Investments, which was given all of Canadian Pacific's non-transportation assets (a structure designed to keep those interests off limits when Canadian Pacific had to undergo review by federal regulators). The new subsidiary's mandate was to acquire and develop resource operations.
The chief architect in the execution of this was Mr. SINCLAIR, who oversaw a period of unprecedented growth at Canadian Pacific. At the start of 1970, Canadian Pacific's asset value was $2.2-billion. A decade later, it was $13-billion, a spectacular growth even allowing for inflation. In the same period, Canadian Pacific's annual revenues swelled to $10-billion from $616-million, moving Canadian Pacific to No. 1 from No. 6 in the corporate size sweepstakes.
And he did it all in a way that is denied today's corporate executives. David O'BRIEN, the last man to run the entire Canadian Pacific empire, said in 2001 that life was different for Chairman SINCLAIR.
"I knew Ian SINCLAIR when I was a young boy. I don't think he met with more than three analysts the whole time he was running Canadian Pacific," said Mr. O'BRIEN. " Now, they're banging down your door every day."
Though Mr. SINCLAIR became a politician late in life, he was often frustrated by politics. In particular, he disliked the victory of the separatist government in Quebec and how it had hollowed out the business centre of Montreal. One after the other, companies fled for Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
Corporate chronicler Peter Newman told a story of visiting Mr. SINCLAIR in his office at Windsor station and interviewing him across the giant oak desk once owned by Sir William VAN HORNE, the man who built the Canadian Pacific Railway. Mr. Newman asked him about the corporate exodus from Montreal.
"What's left in Montreal?" bellowed Mr. SINCLAIR, pounding his desk. "This damn desk."
That gruff personality was usually misunderstood, his daughter, Christine SINCLAIR, said yesterday. "In fact, he was a shy person and had trouble approaching people unless he already knew them."
She said he enjoyed gardening, particularly roses, and revelled in chopping wood. "He loved to see a cord of word stacked neatly."
All things considered, Mr. SINCLAIR probably would have taken to retirement earlier if Mr. Trudeau had not come calling. In 1983, Mr. SINCLAIR was made Senator SINCLAIR, just as he was leaving Canadian Pacific after 42 years. He surprised many of his corporate Friends by supporting the National Energy Policy and fighting free trade. He said the Americans were protectionist.
Mr. SINCLAIR was one of the toughest businessmen of his generation, and one of the most colourful. He stood well over six feet and once weighed as much as 240 pounds, bringing columnist Allan Fotheringham to describe him as "a linebacker who stumbled into the chairman's office by mistake."
For that, he did commit some spectacular errors. The man who engineered Canadian Pacific's enormous growth also made giant blunders. Among his mistakes was a missed opportunity to buy MacMillan Bloedel in 1979. A proposed buyout of the forestry giant prompted a corporate brawl between premier William Bennett and Mr. SINCLAIR. "B.C. is not for sale," declared Mr. Bennett, who had visions that MacMillan Bloedel would become little more than a branch office of the Montreal company whose railway had opened up the West.
Years later, Mr. Bennett confided that Mr. SINCLAIR had rubbed him up the wrong way -- much too arrogant, he said.
Another mistake was Mr. SINCLAIR's 1981 attempt to buy Hobart Corp. of Ohio, the appliance maker. For years, Canadian Pacific had wanted to establish a manufacturing arm, and by all accounts it was to be the foundation of that core business. Reports at the time suggested Mr. SINCLAIR mishandled the situation.
For all that, he didn't make many mistakes in office. While other North American railways failed in the transition from steam, Mr. SINCLAIR did his job -- he made Canadian Pacific hugely profitable.
Ian David SINCLAIR was born in Winnipeg on December 27, 1913. He died on Oakville, Ontario, on April 7, 2006. He was 92. His wife Ruth died in 1994. He is survived by his four children, Ian, Susan, Christine and Donald.

STEPHENS, Don
Dear husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, who was taken from us September 14, 2003.
We thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence
And often speak your name
All we have are memories
And your picture in a frame.
When our family gets together
There is one we do not see
And it fills our heart with sadness
Thinking of it used to be.
In life we love you dearly
In death we love you still
You hold a special place
That no one else can fill.
- Love you forever, Fran and family.

In loving memory of Mary STEPHENS.
The newest of spring is upon us.
The dawn of a new day begins-
Yet I a.m. still in yesterday,
Waiting to hear your voice again,
Or wanting to ask you a question-
Yet you're not there or here.
You're on the other side free of pain and suffering,
Yet able to watch over us,
Watch us grow to be the kind of women you taught us to be.
Love Janice and Tom.

STEPHENS, Elsie " Alice"
In loving memory of a dear Grandmother Elsie (Alice) STEPHENS who passed away 1 year ago May 21, 2005.
The "Angels" of the Lord came down And gently whispered in your ear "Nanny it is time to go Your work is finished here" They took you on a journey Sailing through the sky Looking for your Grandchildren To say your last goodbye. Papa was one of the Angels Leading all the way Only he knew where to find us on that day. As we stood at the cemetery waiting He brought you to our side, you were there for us Before the precession even had a chance to arrive. Your tears fell down from Heaven And gently reached the ground, As we stood sorely crying You didn't make a sound, But let us feel your presence all around. You asked the Lord to hold us And watch over us night and day You asked him to remind us Of you both when we pray. You said " The love that's deep within me Shall reach my Grandchildren from the stars, They'll feel it from the Heavens And it will heal their scars." You said I will watch over all of you Each time you go to sleep, I will kiss all your tears away Every time you weep". You know Nanny we miss you and always will but we know we will never be apart again, because the biggest part of you is deep within our hearts. Our hearts are yours forever and always.
Love your 4 Grandchildren Teri, Kim, Patty and Bobby.

MATHESON, Evelyn Florence
By Joan STEPHENS and Kathy NEALE, Page A16
Nurse, educator, aunt. Born in Pithapuram, India on November 21, 1921. Died in Dundas, Ontario, on December 6, as the result of heart failure, aged 85.
Mahatma Gandhi said "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Evelyn MATHESON believed passionately in this principle and lived her life striving to make positive changes in a troubled world. A remarkably intelligent, compassionate and generous soul, she sought and tackled new challenges with courage, commitment and a keen sense of responsibility.
Evelyn was the eldest child of Arthur MATHESON and Sybil Grace MacHUM, Baptist ministers working as missionaries in South India. She attended Breeks Memorial School in Ootacumund, graduating with a Senior Cambridge Certificate in 1937. Evelyn continued her studies in Canada, and before she turned 20 received a B.A. from Acadia University. In 1944, she graduated from the School of Nursing at the Toronto General Hospital, where she worked on the wards until 1950. After completing an M.A. at Columbia University in New York, she returned to Toronto General Hospital as Educational Director of the School of Nursing.
In 1953, looking for new challenges, Evelyn joined the World Health Organization and was sent to British North Borneo. She tackled this first assignment with an enthusiasm that even the loss of her bungalow and all of her belongings in a fire could not dampen. Early on in her international career, Evelyn realized that her affiliation with World Health Organization might allow her to enrich the lives of those less fortunate. When one of her young Chinese students in Borneo appeared academically gifted, Evelyn persuaded the organization to fund a scholarship enabling him to study in Australia and become a doctor. In 1955, she was stationed in the Sudan where she established the Khartoum Nursing College, which continues to train nurses to this day.
While living in the Sudan, Evelyn witnessed several governmental coups d'état, which she once described as rebels "charging in from the West, riding camels and brandishing spears." From 1962-1964, on one of her home leaves in Canada, Evelyn served as assistant professor of nursing at McGill University. She went on to become the World Health Organization's Regional Nursing Adviser based in Alexandria, Egypt.
"Determined to visit every continent and island", she also had postings in Somalia, Yemen and South Korea. It was in Korea that Evelyn established a primary health-care program in the rural countryside. Her trips to outlying villages in what was initially a small sector of South Korea later resulted in a health-care decree adopted by the entire country. Her final career appointment was senior World Health Organization nurse educator at the school of nursing in Rarotonga, Cook Islands.
Evelyn retired from the World Health Organization in 1981 and returned to Canada, settling in Dundas, Ontario Her retirement provided her with the opportunity to become an avid gardener, environmentalist, Liberal Party member, and patron of the arts. She was a contributing member of the National Ballet, the Toronto Symphony, the Shaw Festival, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Royal Ontario Museum. She was likewise a passionate advocate for world peace; she believed, in the words of Benedict Spinoza, that "peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice."
Evelyn truly dedicated her life to bettering the lives of others all around the world. To quote Dag Hammarskjold, one of her heroes, "We all know that if we feel that what we do is purposeful, not to say essential for the progress of men and human society in a broader sense… we are willing to accept hardships and serve gladly for the sake of serving." Evelyn certainly lived a purposeful life, bringing education and health care to those living in less fortunate regions of the world.
Joan and Kathy are Evelyn's nieces.

McISAAC, Norma Frances (née BUCKLEY)
Halifax, Nova Scotia. Died on Thursday, July 18th at St. Vincent's Nursing Home in her 97th year with her family by her side. Daughter of the late Donald J. and Christina (BLEHR) BUCKLEY of Sydney, Nova Scotia, she was the last surviving member of her immediate family. Norma graduated from the Mount with a Social Work Degree in 1931 and received her Masters from U. of T. two years later. She resided at St. Vincent's since 1996 after moving from Ontario in 1994 to live with her daughter Norma and her family. Although she suffered from arthritis, she was always in good spirits and thinking of others. One of her favourite sayings was "It's not what others think of me that matters, it is how I feel about myself." She spent her married years with Ron in Montreal (twice), Halifax, Winnipeg, and finally Toronto before moving to the family cottage at Thunder Beach, Ontario. She is survived by her daughters Maryl (Barrie) STEPHENS of Calgary, Astrid WHITE/WHYTE of Penetanguishene, Ontario and Norma (Don) CUNNINGHAM of Halifax, sons John R. (Jeanne) of Penetanguishene, Donald of Palmerston, Ontario and Paul (Deborah) of Powell River, British Columbia, seventeen grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren. Norma enjoyed frequent visits from Friends and family who always gave her something to look forward to in her later years. She will also be missed by many nephews and nieces along with her dear cousin, Frank BUCKLEY of Toronto. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Ron in 1974 and their daughter Diane in 1990. A Mass of Christian Burial and cremation has already taken place at Norma's request. There will be a memorial service at St. Vincent's on Friday, July 21st at 9: 30 a.m. followed by an interment service in Ontario later this summer to rest with Ron and Diane. Donations in memory of Norma can be made to St. Vincent's Nursing Home, Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Arthritis Society of Canada or The Martyrs' Shrine, Midland, Ontario. Many thanks to those who eased Norma's suffering over the years, especially the dedicated staff at St. Vincent's who tended to her and the family in the last days. May she rest in peace with Ron and Diane in the hands of the Lord.
