'There was always singing in the house'
By Alwynne GWILT, Staff Reporter
When Pasquale CARPINO began to cook, two things were bound to happen: good food would sizzle and he'd break out into opera.
Fans of his Italian cooking shows, which have aired around the world since the mid-1970s, will always remember CARPINO as the Singing Chef in his double-breasted, bright blue smock.
"If I sing when I cook, the food is going to be happy," CARPINO once said.
Pasquale passed away on Friday of complications from surgery. He was 69.
"I think people in Canada can reproduce Italian food now thanks to him," said Mary McGRATH, former food columnist for the Star.
"At one time I can remember we had Chef Boyardee at home and then we caught on a little bit to spaghetti and lasagna. I think he really contributed to that movement."
Mixing music and munchies made audiences realize cooking could be relaxing, long before the dime-a-dozen cooking shows of today, McGRATH added.
"His singing... was really quite pleasant, it made him approachable and he came across as a very happy person," McGRATH said. "(He showed that) food was really a wonderful thing and that cooking for your family and Friends can be pleasant."
Pasquale came up with the names of most of his recipes, many based on opera characters, composers and singers.
By using ordinary ingredients, viewers with little time felt comfortable recreating his recipes.
To family members, his life on television was no different than life at home.
"The show was just Dad, nothing was made up, nothing was done for television. It was just Dad all the time," said Beatrice, his oldest daughter. "He was always full of life; what you saw on television, that was him."
Pasquale once said he introduced his singing and style to keep Beatrice interested in her Italian heritage and language.
"She was in kindergarten and she was losing her Italian because she was in school," he told the Hamilton Spectator in 1999.
"I didn't want to force her to speak Italian. Then the idea came to sing and be colourful because children like colour."
It worked, not only on Beatrice but his other daughter, Lisa.
His life was full of accomplishments since he emigrated from Italy in 1958. Arriving with only a few dollars in his pocket, he started out as a dishwasher at a Toronto restaurant.
"When you came to a strange country you have to do anything you can," said Evelina, Pasquale's wife.
But dishwashing paid off as he quickly moved up the ranks to chef and soon after, saucier. A job at Toronto's Waldorf Astoria followed. Simultaneously, he studied opera at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.
"(Music) was his first love but sometimes you can't make a living with love," Evelina said. "He loved to sing but cooking gave him an opportunity to make a living."
The two sweethearts met in 1964.
She was also a singer -- a soprano to his tenor -- and Pasquale happened to ask her brother if he knew any sopranos for an upcoming concert.
"We met by music," said Evelina wistfully. "He was a very kind gentlemen."
The couple had two children -- Beatrice in 1968 and Lisa in 1973 and Pasquale moved on to cooking on television.
Growing up in a house of food, music and love has made Beatrice appreciative.
"As a child you don't really think about it but now I am so grateful to have been brought up that way," she said.
"I like to cook now as it's been passed on just from being around it; he was always trying new things and we were the guinea pigs, " Beatrice said. "Music is there, and I couldn't picture my life without it. There was always singing in the house. It was a wonderful environment to grow up in."
For Beatrice, this meant a loving family life growing up and a confidant when she was older.
"There were a lot of hugs, a lot of kisses and we were able to talk as Friends," she said.
"My dad was my dad but he was one of my Friends, and he always encouraged me to go after any dreams I had; no matter what I did he always said, 'You go after it,' and that showed how loving and caring he was."
Evelina said he would want to be remembered as an honest man and a family man, not only as the legendary operatic chef.
"He loved children and family and for people to be together," she said.
CARPINO is survived by his wife of 39 years; his two daughters his brothers Giovanni, Carmine and Mario; and his sisters Anna and Carmine.

'Destined for the military'
Fallen soldier remembered as someone who loved army life
By Scott DUNN with files from The Canadian Press, Thursday, October 05, Cpl. Jimmy MITCHELL always wanted to be the protector. The 32-year-old Owen Sound-born soldier died as one Tuesday in Afghanistan, during an insurgent attack with rocket propelled grenades and assault rifles. Fellow Royal Canadian Dragoon, Sgt. Craig Paul GILLAM, of South Branch, Newfoundland, died with him while protecting a road construction crew.
Robert Thomas James MITCHELL grew up in Owen Sound, attended West Hill Secondary School to the end of Grade 10, then switched to Saint Mary's High School in 1992.
Retired West Hill special education teacher Jim McGREGOR recalled the gangly young man with red hair as a gentle, happy loner.
MITCHELL got into scrapes at the school and was very protective of his younger brother. MITCHELL also struggled to fit in and many at the school didn't expect him to graduate. But McGREGOR knew differently "and he certainly did mature."
It was McGREGOR who recommended MITCHELL switch high schools to get a fresh start and MITCHELL did improve there. He enlisted in the Forces straight out of high school.
"He ended up being in the Armed Forces, which is what he always wanted to do," McGREGOR said.
"He'd put on a fairly tough exterior but inside he was a caring kid. I sometimes think we stereotype a lot of these guys, you know, the big Rambo types, but Jim wasn't one of those."
Everyone who knew MITCHELL said he was destined for the military.
Family friend Norm BIGGAR said MITCHELL was always interested in "enforcement," noting he joined Owen Sound police auxiliary for a while.
"He seemed to want to do that kind of thing. He wanted to be out and helping people," said BIGGAR, who works at Rogers Cable with MITCHELL's father, Bob MITCHELL.
Peter SCOTT is Bob MITCHELL's nephew. He watched Jimmy MITCHELL grow up, went to his minor hockey games and later his wedding at Saint Mary's Church in Owen Sound in 2000.
MITCHELL enlisted in the regular Forces straight out of high school but was injured during basic training and had to drop out. He re-enlisted more than six years ago.
"That says a lot for him too," SCOTT said. "I believe that was his purpose and destiny to be in the military. I don't believe it was his purpose and destiny to get killed."
He cared for his fellow soldiers and loved the adventure of army life and "he put his country ahead of his family," SCOTT said.
MITCHELL's father-in-law, Gary HASS, told the St. Catharines Standard that MITCHELL was proud of the work he was doing and felt strongly he was working toward the greater good.
"He was dedicated to his family and dedicated to his military career," said HASS, of Fort Erie.
MITCHELL graduated from Niagara College and his first military posting was with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry in Edmonton. He served with the Royal Canadian Regiment and, most recently, with the Royal Canadian Dragoons as part of North Atlantic Treaty Organization's International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.
MITCHELL had moved into a new home near Canadian Forces Base Petawawa just days before he was sent overseas.
Maj. James Follwell of the Dragoons said MITCHELL was an avid runner who competed in iron man races and had applied for JTF2, the country's elite commandos.
Parents Bob, Carol, and their son Mark MITCHELL took a chartered flight to Petawawa on Tuesday.
SCOTT said MITCHELL's body will be returned to Canada Friday. Funeral arrangements include a service in Petawawa, he believed, but details were not known.
MITCHELL, who was scheduled to return home next month, leaves his wife, Leanne, and three children, ages five, three and two.
Owen Sound Legion president Bob GRIFFITH is a good friend of Bob MITCHELL. When his friend said Jimmy wanted a career in the military, GRIFFITH advised him how to go about it.
After he was discharged for medical reasons, GRIFFITH had several talks in his home with Bob MITCHELL about whether his son should return to the military.
GRIFFITH feels for Bob and Carol MITCHELL for all they're going through "But then you've got to look at it (as) this young lad really wanted to go into the military, so he was doing what he wanted to do. There's nothing else in life he wanted to do but be in the military," said GRIFFITH, who spent 45 years in the armed forces.
"We all go in knowing this is a possibility. It's just that I was really fortunate in that I never had something like this happen in my tour."

Michel CHEVALIER, Teacher, Soldier And Businessman (1924-2006)
Quebecker of high-born French origins ended up a professor but had been a D-Day artilleryman and a political hopeful
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Michel CHEVALIER did so many different things in life, he is almost impossible to pigeonhole. He ended as a professor, earning a PhD in his 40s after having earlier quit university. Along the way, he was a soldier, a businessman and a somewhat prescient politician.
The CHEVALIER family was an oddity in Quebec. They came from France in the 19th century, not the 17th. Michel CHEVALIER's grandfather arrived in Montreal to found a branch of the French financial institution Credit Foncier. Michel's parents distrusted the influence of the Catholic Church in 1920s Quebec, so they sent their children to English-language private schools.
His mother, Alice GEOFFRION, was the daughter of a prominent Montreal lawyer. One ancestor on that side of the family was Sir Antoine DORION, a prominent player in Quebec politics who was briefly joint premier of the united province of Canada in August of 1858. In the next decade, he opposed Confederation but eventually served in a Liberal cabinet and became chief justice of Quebec.
When the Second World War began, Michel CHEVALIER was scarcely 15 but keen to get into the thick of the fighting. Many young men longed to be officers so, a little more than a year later, he faked his age and qualified for officer training. He graduated a year later and was eager to head overseas as soon as possible but ran into a colonel who had known his father during the First World War.
"You must be Jacques," said the colonel, referring to his older brother. When the colonel discovered Michel was only 17, he put a stop to him going overseas.
Michel then resigned his commission and re-enlisted as a private soldier. He was sent overseas, trained in England and landed with the 13th Canadian Field Regiment, Royal Canadian artillery, on D-Day, June 6, 1944. He was wounded twice during fighting in Europe.
After the war, Mr. CHEVALIER enrolled at McGill University but felt too restless for student life and lasted about a month. It was during this time that he first met his future wife, Jean MacGREGOR. He proposed marriage after their first meeting. She turned him down, and he took off on a long trip through Africa and Latin America. He came home three years later to find she had changed her mind. For a while, he worked at Alcan in the public-relations department, where he objected to the lack of French-speaking smelter managers.
"He pushed so hard, he was fired from Alcan," long-time friend High Pawson recalled. "He was a forward thinker and called the shots on what was going to happen in Quebec long before it happened."
It was around then that Mr. CHEVALIER wrote a rather prescient letter to a Tory member of Parliament, J.M. Macdonnell, saying the Progressive Conservatives needed to win support in Quebec or the country faced the prospect of unending Liberal rule. In his letter of 1950, he used the old-fashioned term Canadien to describe Quebeckers. "It is true that the Canadien vote can, in rare instances, be stampeded away from the Liberals, but there is no denying that this kind of support scatters just as fast as it is gathered," Mr. CHEVALIER wrote, adding that the country needed a strong second party.
Later, he started his own company, a business that organized conferences. It was a success, and his brother joined him as a partner in Chevalier Associates. They worked out of the elegant Prince of Wales Terrace on Sherbrooke Street (it was later torn down).
In the mid-1960s, Mr. CHEVALIER decided to return to school. He earned a master's degree and then a doctorate in city planning at the University of Pennsylvania. He returned home to be a professor at the Université de Montreal in the Institute d'urbanisme. At the same time, he joined the faculty at Toronto's York University to teach environmental studies.
"Michel was very focused on ideas and always thinking ahead," said Fred Carden, one of Mr. CHEVALIER's doctoral students at the Université de Montreal. "For example, he was talking about horizontal management 10 to 15 years before it became a hot topic in government circles."
At the same time, Mr. CHEVALIER became involved in municipal politics. He worked with the Montreal Citizens Movement, a group that challenged Jean Drapeau's one-man rule at City Hall, with good effect. But while they got some new councillors elected, their number was insufficient to temper the Montreal mayor's ego and power. Mr. Drapeau went ahead with the 1976 Olympic Games, which the city and province are still paying off.
On the city level, Mr. CHEVALIER mostly worked behind the scenes but did have one foray into organized politics. In 1972, he ran for the Progressive Conservatives in Argenteuil-Deux-Montagnes, the federal riding near the confluence of the Ottawa and St. Lawrence where his family had long owned a farm. He didn't stand much of chance; his opponent was Francis Fox, a future minister in Pierre Trudeau's cabinet, and the Liberals swept Quebec to win 56 of 75 seats. He had fallen victim to the very circumstances he had predicted regarding Liberal hegemony in Quebec.
Much of Mr. CHEVALIER's childhood and adult life were spent at a family farm at Oka, Quebec After the troubles at Oka, the family sold most of the property. Mr. CHEVALIER left the Université de Montreal in 1988 but stayed on at York until his retirement in 1992.
Michel Philippe CHEVALIER was born in Montreal on July 1, 1924. He died in Toronto on January 15, 2006, after a long stay in hospital. He is survived by his wife, Jean, and four children. He was predeceased by a daughter in 1991.

McGREGOR, Don (March 28, 1934-April 1, 2006)
Don is gone, but his spirit lives on. Each of us will remember him with a smile and loads of laughs. After a lengthy and stoic battle with cancer Don passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by family and Friends. Those who knew Don loved him. He had consistent quick wit, mischievous nature, generosity, and common sense approach. His business career began working alongside his father and brother in the family's auto servicing business. At his father's urging, Don left the family business to find a job where "you don't have to get your hands dirty everyday." He successfully pursued various careers including securities sales, financial controller and marketing manager before coming to the realization that, like his father, he wanted his own business. In the early 70s Don made three decisions that would have a dramatic impact on the rest of his life. He married Molly and became an instant father to Catherine and Stephen. He founded CMC Wholesale Warehouse. He and Molly purchased a small farm near the town of Stirling in eastern Ontario. " CMC," the company founded by Don became a Canadian leader in its field. His marriage to Molly, and having an instant family, added a new zest to his life and Don fell in love with farming. Over time, the farm became Don's true spiritual home. When he was first diagnosed with cancer five years ago and given the prognosis of having only a year or two to live, Don decided to follow his dream and begin farming on a full time basis. He couldn't wait for the arrival of each new spring to get out on the fields, clearing stones, plowing, cultivating and sowing his crops. Don was delighted last year when a respected old time farmer surveyed his crop of soybeans and said, "you know Don, you're one of the best farmers in these parts." Don was truly an individual whose main pleasure in life was making people laugh with his dry one-liners. His departure will leave a gaping hole in the lives of all who knew him. His love and humour will continue to be remembered by his wife Molly, daughter Catherine and her husband Mark, son Stephen and his wife Catherine, and four beautiful granddaughters, Don's brother Bill, his wife Margaret, as well as an extended family that includes many nieces, and nephews. He also leaves a close circle of Friends. An open house where Friends and family can share fond and humorous memories of Don will be held at the family house in Port Credit on Saturday April 8th, 2006 from 1: 00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This will be followed by a "Don" day to be held at the family home farm on Saturday May 13th from 1: 00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Any donations in Don's memory should be sent to: Camp Trillium Childhood Cancer Support System at 1 888 999 2267. No flowers requested.

Alex TRIMBLE, Royal Canadian Air Force Officer (1920-2006)
Meticulous worker began his career during the Battle of Britain, repairing and maintaining the delicate instruments that crowded the cockpits of his squadron's Hawker Hurricanes
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S9
Ottawa -- Alex TRIMBLE climbed out of the cockpit of a Hawker Hurricane fighter aircraft and wiped his brow. Nearby, a dozen Hurricanes stretched down the airfield, each of them swarmed by Royal Canadian Air Force technicians intent on servicing their aircraft for the next flight.
From the fitters who maintained the engines and the riggers who repaired the airframes, wings and undercarriage, to the men who fixed the radios plus the armourers who cleaned and loaded each aircraft's eight.303-inch machine guns, the technicians knew the pilots of No. 1 (Fighter) Squadron depended on them.
Mr. TRIMBLE had a vital job of his own. Known for his painstaking accuracy, he was an instrument maker, responsible for repairing and maintaining the dozen or so delicate instruments that crowded each Hurricane cockpit.
Speedometer, tachometer, oil-pressure gauge, air-pressure gauge, compass -- every instrument had to be in perfect working order because a pilot's life could depend on it, especially when flying blind in clouds.
The Royal Canadian Air Force regarded servicing extremely seriously. "Before a plane can take off, a chart has to be signed by eight different men, including the five airmen in charge of the main ground jobs, and the flight sergeant," said a newspaper story entitled Ground Men Playing Vital Roles In War. "As a result, accidents from mechanical faults seldom occur and when a pilot sets out on a sweep across northern France he can be reasonably certain that if he doesn't get in the way of enemy guns he'll come safely back to his base."
Despite a lack of formal recognition -- ground crew weren't entitled to a campaign star, like the Aircrew Europe Star awarded after the war to aircrew -- Mr. TRIMBLE enjoyed his job. He knew his pilots as human beings, since he strapped them into their cockpits and wished them good hunting before taking off. Scanning the sky anxiously, Mr. TRIMBLE was there for them when they returned, physically and emotionally drained after combat.
A key member of the only Royal Canadian Air Force squadron to participate in the epic Battle of Britain, fought from July 10 to October 31, 1940, Mr. TRIMBLE watched history being made in the skies over Britain that hot summer of perfect weather as the German Luftwaffe tried to destroy the Royal Air Force as a prelude to invasion. Over all, 105 Canadian pilots flew in the Battle of Britain, 77 with the Royal Air Force and 28 with No. 1 Squadron.
Organized in 1937 at Royal Canadian Air Force Station Trenton, Ontario, No. 1 Squadron and its Hurricanes were mobilized on September 10, 1939, the day Canada declared war against Germany. In May, 1940, No. 1 absorbed No. 115 (Fighter) Squadron and moved to Britain.
On August 26, No. 1 Squadron engaged the Luftwaffe for the first time when 10 Hurricanes scrambled against a force of 25 to 30 bombers. Flight Lieutenant G.R. McGREGOR destroyed a Dornier Do. 215 and Flying Officer T.B. LITTLE was awarded a bomber probably destroyed. Flying Officer R.L. EDWARDS was killed.
It had been quite a day for Squadron Leader Ernie McNAB and his pilots. His unit was the first Royal Canadian Air Force squadron to score victories, suffer combat casualties and win gallantry awards. On March 1, 1941, No. 1 was renumbered as 401 Squadron after the Royal Canadian Air Force was awarded the 400-block series of numbers.
For Mr. TRIMBLE and his comrades, life during the Battle of Britain was hectic. Described as unsung heroes for their dedication, ground crew worked long hours -- often starting before dawn and finishing after midnight -- but the bright lights of London also beckoned, with its "tonight we live for tomorrow we may die" atmosphere.
In 1941, Mr. TRIMBLE was at a party when he spied a pretty girl. Sparks ignited and he asked Isobel KIRKPATRICK to dance. That was the beginning of a whirlwind romance that ended in marriage a year later, on March 17, 1941.
"It must have been the uniform. We danced, we dated, he got posted then came back. It was war time and we didn't know what tomorrow would bring," said Mrs. TRIMBLE. "It was love at first sight. He was a handsome lad, had a great sense of humour, a wonderful personality."
Alex TRIMBLE joined the Royal Canadian Air Force the day after Canada declared war on Nazi Germany on September 10, 1939. After training in Ottawa, he was sent to No. 115 (Fighter) Squadron. On August 25, 1941, he was posted to the newly formed 408 Squadron. A month later, he was promoted to sergeant, just 24 months after first enlisting. Mr. TRIMBLE spent the next two years in charge of 408's instrument section. Formed as the second Royal Canadian Air Force bomber squadron overseas, 408 attacked targets all over Europe with its Hampden and Halifax bombers.
After the war, Mr. TRIMBLE remained in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He served from 1948 to 1956 with 412 (Transport) Squadron, based at Royal Canadian Air Force Station Uplands, in Ottawa, in command of the instrument and electrical sections. Then, as now, 412 is known as the "V.I.P. squadron," flying prime ministers, governors-general and the royal family. It was the golden era of the Royal Canadian Air Force, which soon reached 52,000 men and women and 2,000 aircraft.
In 1956, Mr. TRIMBLE became an officer, specializing in aeronautical engineering. He and his family spent three years in France before going to air force headquarters in 1959. He retired in 1968 as a captain and bought a 100-acre farm in Lanark County, Ontario, in 1973.
Gail PROUDE of Ottawa remembers family life with her father during the 1950s with affection. "He went to work every day and every night the family sat down for supper together. Afterwards, Ann and I did the dishes and Mom and Dad would retire to the living room and read the paper. Families established their parameters and kids followed the rules, for the most part. It was a secure time."
Known as an organized, meticulous man, Mr. TRIMBLE loved repairing clocks and watches. "[It] became his hobby when we kids were all very young. He used to tell us that whatever money he made&hellip he used it to put gas in the car," said Mrs. PROUDE. He continued his repair work for a jewellery store in Perth, Ontario, until Alexander George TRIMBLE was born on September 3, 1920, in Ottawa. He died of heart disease on April 11, in Perth, Ontario He was 85. He is survived by his wife, Isobel, his son Gordon, his daughters Gail and Ann, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Our dear mother passed away in her sleep early on September 26. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Geoffrey. Left to cherish countless memories are daughter Judith (Jonathan RUBES) and son Trevor (Nancy); grandchildren Michael (Cathy), Glen, Dale (Martin,) and Morgan and Colin RUBES; great-granddaughter Audrey and many nieces and nephews. Her only sister, Joyce ELLIS, predeceased her this year. Mum was a generous hostess, an inventive decorator and painter, an exceptional knitter, and, right up to the last days, a killer Scrabble player. She considered herself extremely fortunate to have had 66 wonderfully happy years with Geoff, who left her side less than 6 months ago. Betty and Geoff met and married in war-time London in 1940, and their extraordinary partnership was often referred to by their many Friends as one of the "great romances." We are grateful that she is not alone any longer. The family extends its heartfelt appreciation to Helga MacGREGOR for all her loving care and support as well as the excellent nursing staff at Belmont House, Walker Wing 3 West. As Mum wished, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral service.

McGREGOR, Don (March 28, 1934-April 1, 2006)
Don is gone, but his spirit lives on. Each of us will remember him with a smile and loads of laughs. After a lengthy and stoic battle with cancer, Don passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by family and Friends. Those who knew Don loved him. He had consistent quick wit, mischievous nature, generosity, and a common sense approach. His business career began working alongside his father and brother in the family's auto servicing business. At his father's urging, Don left the family business to find a job where "you don't have to get your hands dirty everyday." He successfully pursued various careers including securities sales, financial controller and marketing manager before coming to the realization that, like his father, he wanted his own business. In the early 70s, Don made three decisions that would have a dramatic impact on the rest of his life. He married Molly and became an instant father to Catherine and Stephen. He founded CMC Wholesale Warehouse. He and Molly purchased a small farm near the town of Stirling in eastern Ontario. " CMC," the company founded by Don, became a Canadian leader in its field. His marriage to Molly, and having an instant family, added a new zest to his life and Don fell in love with farming. Over time, the farm became Don's true spiritual home. When he was first diagnosed with cancer five years ago and given the prognosis of having only a year or two to live, Don decided to follow his dream and begin farming on a full time basis. He couldn't wait for the arrival of each new spring to get out on the fields, clearing stones, plowing, cultivating and sowing his crops. Don was delighted last year when a respected old time farmer surveyed his crop of soybeans and said, "you know Don, you're one of the best farmers in these parts." Don was truly an individual whose main pleasure in life was making people laugh with his dry one-liners. His departure will leave a gaping hole in the lives of all who knew him. His love and humour will continue to be remembered by his wife Molly, daughter Catherine and her husband Mark, son Stephen and his wife Catherine, and four beautiful granddaughters, Don's brother Bill, his wife Margaret, as well as an extended family that includes many nieces, and nephews. He also leaves a close circle of Friends. An open house where Friends and family can share fond and humorous memories of Don will be held at the family house in Port Credit on Saturday, April 8th, 2006 from 1: 00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This will be followed by a "Don" day to be held at the family home farm on Saturday, May 13th from 1: 00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Any donations in Don's memory should be sent to: Camp Trillium Childhood Cancer Support System at 1-888-999-2267. No flowers requested.

CUMMING, Margaret Mayme
By Jean CUMMING, Page A30
School teacher, partner, mother. Born April 23, 1952, in Barrie, Ontario Died August 26 of breast cancer in Fort Nelson, British Columbia, aged 54.
Margaret was born to Bruce and Mayme CUMMING -- a younger sister for brother Andy.
As a child, she took part in figure skating; there's a terrific picture of Margaret in which she's wearing a white rabbit costume for the skating carnival. And she loved, loved, loved to read, starting from childhood.
When she was nine years old, her family moved from "town" to a farm about 10 miles away. It was a difficult transition for Margaret; she had to leave behind her best friend Patty and easy access to schoolmates. But she adapted and learned new things: For instance, when she and her younger brother Jimmy walked the mile to elementary school, they learned to whistle like the different types of birds they heard. But Margaret's childhood was marked by terrible tragedy. She took direct hits to the heart when our brothers Andy and Jimmy were both killed in separate accidents, six years apart. They were immediate to her in age, and dear, dear Friends. Margaret adapted by toughing it out.
She developed a fondness for horseback riding; she had a favourite horse, Little Joe, whom she named after the youngest brother on the hit television series of that time, Bonanza. As a teenager, she also had a cat she was very fond of, Simon; he was promoted from barn cat and was the only cat our mother ever allowed in the house.
Margaret had a lot of fun at Barrie Central Collegiate, and she maintained Friendships from those days for the rest of her life one couple from that time visited Margaret in Fort Nelson Hospital in northern British Columbia this summer.
After high school, she went to Saint Paul's College, University of Waterloo, for an undergraduate degree in history and geography, and then to the University of Toronto for a teaching degree. Secure teaching jobs were difficult to obtain at that time; after a few years teaching in a private school (where she was so underpaid that she also took a job at a dry-cleaning store) then supply-teaching a bit, and working at a group home, Margaret received the opportunity of a secure teaching position in Cambridge Bay, Northwest Territories. Yes, it was a huge move; yes, it meant leaving her family and Friends, but she jumped at the opportunity and adapted to the change. She developed good Friendships wherever she went, including there, and later in Fort Nelson.
And that's where the highlight of Margaret's life happened. At age 40, she gave birth to her son, Scott CUMMING.
Still, Margaret came to Ontario to visit her family every summer and many times at Christmas. She came for as long as she could when our parents were sick and needed her care-giving. Not long after our parents died (one year apart), Margaret was diagnosed with breast cancer. From the very beginning, telling Scott the truth about her illness was her policy. It was her partner John McGRORY's, too.
Beyond that, Margaret didn't complain about her condition. She regularly encountered people in clinics and hospitals whom she thought had it worse than she did and, sick as she was, she tried to do something to help when she could. While in Edmonton about five years ago for treatment, she was staying in a hospital residence. She met there a woman whose cancer put her into a difficult financial position. Margaret treated her to an expensive concert one evening.
Margaret tended to talk too much, it has to be said. But on the other side of the ledger, she was a wonderful mother, generous with care and money, and fun. She was an unusually strong example of adaptation to bad news in life.
Jean CUMMING is Margaret's sister.
