FICK, Ruth Anna (formerly POWERS, née WOOLL)
Died peacefully in her 92nd year after losing a fight with pneumonia in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Ruth was born in Saginaw, Michigan, to the late John Oliver WOOLL and the former Edith Eliza BAILEY. Ruth attended Saginaw High and continued her education with secretarial studies. She met a young Canadian Evangelist, the Reverend George Max POWERS, senior. They fell in love, were married, moved to Sarnia, had four daughters and later moved to Walsingham where George pastored the Free Methodist church; there they had a son. George died of cancer in 1947 and Ruth continued as a lay pastor in Walsingham for the next three years. In 1951 Ruth was again in love and married William Ernest FICK, senior, of Marston. The family moved to a farm at R.R.#3, Tillsonburg where Ruth had another son. Ruth had a full life, raising a family, farming, playing an active role in the Cornell Women's Institute, and for many years holding positions of service at the Tillsonburg Free Methodist church: youth leader, Sunday school teacher, pianist, organist and board secretary. Ernest died in 1990 and in 1993 Ruth moved to the senior apartments at 31 Maple Lane, Tillsonburg, where she met many new Friends. In 2005 she moved to the F.J. Davey Home in Sault Ste. Marie, where she quickly adapted, again making more new Friends and enjoying delicious meals. Until contracting pneumonia, she remained mentally active, e-mailing and chatting online, and hearing, for the first time, a live performance of Handel's Messiah - a special treat was arriving early, catching the end of rehearsal and hearing her favourite song, the Hallelujah Chorus, twice. It is common to hear her Friends and family say they valued her Friendship and prayer support. Her passing is their loss, not hers. She will be deeply missed. Ruth was the dear mother and mother-in-law of Lois STOVER; Tillsonburg; Geraldine POWERS (deceased 2001;) Edith GARWOOD (deceased 1999,) Don (Pat) GARWOOD, Uruguay; Ruth (Joseph) INFURNARI, Dunnville; George POWERS (deceased 1995,) Linda MAE- POWERS, Haliburton; and William (Carol) FICK, Sault Ste. Marie. Ruth had 14 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. She prayed for them all daily. Ruth was predeceased by one sister and four brothers. Ruth is resting at Verhoeve Funeral Home, 262 Broadway, Tillsonburg, Ontario (519-842-4238) where service will be held in the chapel on Saturday, January 21st, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. by Reverend Douglas J. DAWSON of the Free Methodist Church, Tillsonburg. Interment to follow at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Walsingham, Ontario. Memorial donations (by cheque only) to the Free Methodist Church or the charity of your choice Visitation Friday 2: 00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00 p.m.

EDINBOROUGH, Arnold, O.C., M.C., M.A., LL.D., Litt.S.D.
Peacefully, surrounded by his loving family at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital on Friday, June 2, 2006, in his 84th year. Dearly beloved husband of Tish, with whom he recently celebrated 60 wonderful years of marriage. Much loved father of daughters Kip LONGSTAFF of Oakville and Sarah ILEY of Banff and Oakville, he was pre-deceased by his son Alastair last spring. Adored grandfather of Nicholas and Michael LONGSTAFF, Lucy (Duncan) and Campbell EDINBOROUGH, Meghan and Beth ILEY, he will also be sorely missed by his devoted son-in-law Stephen ILEY.

Founding President of The Council for Business and the Arts in Canada and a long-time contributing editor to The Financial Post, Arnold came to Canada from Cambridge in 1947 to teach English at Queen's University in Kingston. His long, varied and distinguished career was shaped by his endless curiosity, generous spirit and astonishing intelligence. A captain in the Royal Artillery during World War 2, he then became a scholar, professor, writer, editor and publisher of Saturday Night magazine, an active Anglican layman, a director of numerous arts, educational and social service organizations and was, always, a marvelous raconteur. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at Saint_Jude's Anglican Church, 160 William Street, Oakville on Wednesday, June 7th at 2 o'clock.

Arnold EDINBOROUGH: Editor, Arts Advocate (1922-2006)
Demobilized from the British Army after the Second World War, he came to Canada to teach at Queen's University, writes Sandra MARTIN. Later, he became editor-owner of Saturday Night and a champion of the arts
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A smart boy from a poor family, Arnold EDINBOROUGH made excellent use of his brains and personality to earn an elite British education on merit rather than pedigree. After winning the Military Cross for bravery in the Second World War, he emigrated to Canada and became a significant cultural force as editor of the Kingston Whig-Standard and Saturday Night magazine. A devout Anglican, an accomplished public speaker, raconteur, and columnist for the Financial Post magazine, Mr. EDINBOROUGH was the author of several books and the founding president and chief executive officer of the Council for Business and the Arts in Canada, a pioneering advocacy group encouraging corporations to support the arts.
He had an uncanny likeness to his friend, novelist Robertson DAVIES, with the same receding hairline and pointed Van Dyke beard. Indeed, there's a story from the 1970s about an excited airline passenger sitting beside Mr. DAVIES (newly famous because of the success of his novel Fifth Business) and lavishing him with praise during the seven-hour flight across the Atlantic, only to say on landing: "My wife will be so excited to hear that I have met Arnold EDINBOROUGH."
It was Mr. EDINBOROUGH's misfortune to be an anglophile in Canada at a time of nascent cultural nationalism. He loved the country with a passion and worked hard to nurture a climate for arts and culture. "He might have seemed a bit stuffy to subsequent editors of Saturday Night," journalist John FRASER said yesterday, referring to himself and Robert FULFORD, "but he certainly gave me a big break by publishing 'political letters from Newfoundland' when I was an undergraduate [at Memorial University]. All you need in journalism to get going is a bit of nerve and somebody to have faith in you and get you published so people can see that you can do it," he said. "Every journalist has somebody in their life who somebody took a chance on, and he was mine."
Arnold EDINBOROUGH was the younger son of Frank and Sarah Ann (née CLARK) EDINBOROUGH. His family were tenant farmers. By his grandfather's time, they had managed to acquire a small amount of property. Arnold, who won a scholarship at the age of 11 to attend Spalding Grammar School (founded by Royal Charter in 1588 and officially known as Queen Elizabeth Royal Free Grammar School) was the first EDINBOROUGH to go beyond the village school. His future wife, Letitia (Letty) Mary WOOLLEY attended Spalding School for Girls, the female academic equivalent.
They met at the annual tennis challenge between the two schools. She was a champion player, he was head boy, heavily into dramatics, and lacking a partner for the doubles competition. She offered to play with him, a decision she initially regretted because he wielded a racket with a bent elbow. They won the match and continued a casual Friendship in Cambridge, where he went on a scholarship in October of 1940 to study English at St. Catharine's College and where she trained as a nurse at Addenbrooke's Hospital. Their relationship really flourished through the correspondence they exchanged during the Second World War after he enlisted in the British Army, serving with the 23rd Field Regiment of the Royal Artillery in North Africa and then in Italy. He quickly rose to the rank of captain.
He was awarded the Military Cross for bravery for his role as a forward observation officer in the long march on Rome. The citation describes him remaining in his observation post in the "exposed flank of the battalion" during the attack on the River Gaiano, breaking up at least two counter attacks with "accurate gunfire." Later, he destroyed two enemy-held footbridges and contributed "greatly" to the speed of the advance on Medicina. "His complete disregard of his own safety was an inspiration to all," according to the citation.
Any thought of remaining in the military after the war ended evaporated after his colonel enquired whether he had the necessary funds to support himself properly as an officer in the professional army. He was demobilized in December of 1945, returned to Cambridge to resume his studies for his degree in English, married Ms. WOOLLEY on January 14, 1946, and graduated with a very respectable 2.1 ranking in 1947. After toying with the idea of working for the British Council -- the postings he was offered were in Brazil and Turkey and a teaching post in what was then Ceylon, he accepted a fortuitous offer from the ex-patriate British Shakespearean scholar G.B. Harrison to teach at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario His marks, his passion for drama and his experience teaching at the University of Lausanne during summer vacations cinched the appointment. He and his bride sailed for Canada in August of 1947.
All three of the EDINBOROUGH's children, Christine, Alistair and Sarah, were born in Kingston, where Mr. EDINBOROUGH taught at Queen's in both the normal academic year and in the summer school, and picked up courses to teach at The Royal Military College as well. Cambridge automatically bestowed a master's degree on him in 1950 to mark the third anniversary of his graduation. He went back to England in 1952 to work on a doctorate, but abandoned the advanced degree after deciding he was a popularizer and a teacher rather than a scholar, according to his youngest daughter, Sarah, an arts administrator.
Kingston was "a dour Presbyterian place," which he described in his 1991 memoir, Arnold Edinborough: An Autobiography, as "like Caesar's Gaul, divided into three parts: town, gown and military." Although each pretty much kept to itself, Mr. EDINBOROUGH managed to bridge all three, largely because of his Friendship with Robertson DAVIES.
They had both been educated in England (although Mr. DAVIES went to Oxford, not Cambridge), they shared a passion for theatre and English literature, and they both had families and small children. They differed in two major respects: Mr. DAVIES came from a wealthy literary family, and he was an exceptionally talented writer. When they met, Mr. DAVIES was the editor of The Peterborough Examiner, a newspaper owned by his father, Rupert DAVIES, and he generously introduced his younger English friend to the nascent literary community. When Mr. EDINBOROUGH left academe in 1954, he became the editor of the Kingston Whig-Standard, which was also owned by Mr. DAVIES's father.
After four years at the helm of the Whig, Mr. EDINBOROUGH resigned to move to Toronto as editor of Saturday Night Magazine, which was then owned by the flamboyant media entrepreneur Jack Kent Cooke. The two did not share an editorial vision, but Mr. EDINBOROUGH outlasted his employer by buying the magazine away from him (and mortgaging his house to do so -- a flamboyant gesture that he advised John FRASER, a later editor of the magazine, not to emulate.)
The reports on Mr. EDINBOROUGH's tenure as editor of the venerable (and now defunct) magazine vary. He had a quick succession of managing editors, including Harry Bruce, Kildare Dobbs and Jack Batten. "Arnold was an impressive figure with a goatee beard and a fine speaking voice and given to sounding off at banquets about dirty books and other issues of the day," said Mr. Dobbs in an e-mail message. "His virtues as an editor were his friendliness to talent and willingness to leave associates to run their own shows."
Those are "virtues" that he may have taken to extremes in a three-person operation that makes shoestring seem extravagant. "Arnold was the editor of record, but I did all the work," said Mr. Batten, who was managing editor from September of 1967 to April of 1968 "just long enough to know that I didn't ever want to be an editor. I wanted to be a writer."
He described his boss's "idiosyncrasy" of spending about half his time out of the office travelling, delivering speeches and encouraging random acquaintances, rather than professional writers, to send stories to the magazine. Mr. Batten put out three issues and then quit to work as a writer for The Star Weekly, which was then being edited by Peter Gzowski.
Robert Fulford followed Mr. Batten, but he insisted on being named editor in name, as well as deed. Mr. EDINBOROUGH then became publisher of Saturday Night Publications, which at the time included Monday Morning, a magazine for teachers, and Parallele, a quarterly published in French with articles translated from Saturday Night. "In the end, it was the wrong decision," Mr. EDINBOROUGH wrote in his autobiography. "Not to hire Fulford [who continued as editor until Conrad Black bought the magazine in 1987], but to think I could have the revivifying effect on the business side as I had undoubtedly had on the editorial side of Saturday Night Publications."
He finally left the publication in 1970, selling his stake for one penny to David Fry, William Nobleman and Jack Seed. He went on to write an extremely popular column on the arts in the Financial Post magazine, which dovetailed with his advocacy work with corporations at the Council for Business and the Arts in Canada, a position he held until he retired in 1989 at the age of 67.
Arnold EDINBOROUGH was born in Donnington, Lincolnshire, on August 2, 1922. He died in Oakville, Ontario, on June 2, after suffering a massive stroke during surgery for skin cancer. He was 83. Predeceased by his son, Alistair, he is survived by his wife, Letty, daughters Christine and Sarah, and six grandchildren.

Suspected street racer dies in hospital
Was driving one of 3 Corvettes on 427
Cars seized by police in separate fatal crash
By Amanda-Marie QUINTINO, Staff Reporter
A 25-year-old Etobicoke man who spent almost a week in hospital with serious head injuries following a suspected street race has died.
Myron KOCUR died Sunday of injuries suffered June 13 when his silver Corvette hit a guardrail along the northbound lanes of Highway 427 near Rathburn Rd. at about 11 p.m., police said.
The collision occurred after three Corvettes were seen travelling at extremely high speeds, police said.
"It is certainly an obvious possibility that these three speeding Corvettes could have been street racing," said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY. "The possibility is definitely a part of the investigation."
The victim was ejected from the Corvette, which was torn to pieces. Debris was spread across six lanes.
The drivers of the other two Corvettes were arrested. Milan PAUNOV, 31, of Etobicoke, is charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm, criminal negligence causing bodily harm and failing to remain.
Michael GODINA, 24, also of Etobicoke, is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
As a result of KOCUR's death, amended charges are pending.
Police have seized the other two Corvettes, WOOLLEY said.
Since 1999, 34 people in the Greater Toronto Area have died in street-racing incidents, police say.
Meanwhile, York Region police said yesterday that they have seized two vehicles involved in a collision that killed two people last month.
Robert MANCHESTER, 46, and his wife, Lisa MANCHESTER, 43, of Richmond Hill, were killed May 27 in a suspected street race at the intersection of Yonge St. and Stouffville Rd. On Thursday, officers executed search warrants at the homes of the men charged in the fatal crash and seized their vehicles as offence-related property under the authority of the Criminal Code.

WOOTTON, Siobhán
By Seán McDONNELL, Page A18
Musician, actor, speech pathologist, wife, mother. Born August 25, 1961, in Antigonish, Nova Scotia Died September 2, 2005 in Waterloo, Ontario, of cancer, aged 44.
As a child, Siobhán (pronounced shiv-awn) hated her name. People had problems with its pronunciation. Each year, she would stomp back from her first day of school and bitterly recount the manglings offered up by her new teachers. Our favourite (and her sometime nickname) was "Soybean."
Growing up, she was the Goddess of Small Things. Animal, vegetable or toy - if they could fit in her palm, they were loved. A particular favourite of hers was a canary, Beakly Tweet III (there never was a I or II). She also had rabbits, and accidentally invented horizontal silage one fall, when she stored grass cuttings in plastic bags in her dresser so they could eat over the winter. The smell of rotting grass was awful.
Siobhán was a perfectionist. Her wedding cake (which she made herself) took four days' effort and about eight iterations. It involved vertically alternating two different coloured cake batters (against the laws of physics, as I understand) as well as highly technical marzipan carvings. Her culinary masterpiece, though, was her trifle -- a delicately assembled concoction of angel food cake, raspberries, custard and whipped cream, totally compromised by the better part of two bottles of Dad's most expensive liqueurs. Dad hated that dessert, from the bottom of his third bowl.
Music was a defining theme of her life. She played piano, flute, tin whistle, oboe and Irish harp. She played in numerous groups at St. Francis Xavier University, and did a music/English double major for her first degree. Her second degree, a master's in music criticism, persuaded her it was much more fun to play music than to write about it. She worked as a freelance harpist and spent several years as an actor/musician in dinner theatres in Charlottetown and Halifax. (Being slightly introverted, she was a very good character actor.) She did an SM5000 recording for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in the late 1980s (O'Carolan's Harp, Marquis Classics). Along with her various instruments, Siobhán had a glorious voice - clear, pure and strong. Not many people knew this, as she rarely sang solo in public.
In the early 1990s, she went back to school for her second master's degree - in speech pathology this time. After moving to Waterloo, Ontario, with her family (husband Richard, children Adam and Emma), she worked as a speech pathologist at the KidsAbility Centre, and found her work with children there highly fulfilling again, she was helping "small things."
Siobhán was gentle and non-confrontational to a fault. She had an understated sense of humour, and loved irony.
Following are her own words: "Thoughts Regarding My Life and Death
"Top three things I won't miss because I'm dead: housework, picking up dog poo and having to get up when it's still dark. …If anybody tells my kids that God needed me more than they did, they're wrong. …In many ways, the last years of my life were the most enjoyable (in the moments between the anguish of having to leave my kids at such a young age). I got to be a 'stay-at-home mom,' to be there when my kids came home for lunch every day. …I feel like I've left so many things unfinished, yet I feel like I've accomplished a lot, too. I earned three degrees, married a wonderfully devoted husband, gave birth to two beautiful children, had a fulfilling career which allowed me to continue to love and pursue music, and made Friends who sustained me and gave me comfort through this illness.
"To my parents: I'm sorry for your anguish. I can't imagine having my child die before I did (and I guess I won't have to worry about that any more)."
Seán McDONNELL is Siobhán's brother.
