Doctor remembered for putting others first
Former Lion's head physician at some 1,500 births
By Jim ALGIE, Sun Times Staff, Page A1
Her colleagues knew her as a cheerful, conscientious physician. Her children knew her for a dedication to her profession that carried through more than 40 years of family practice on the Bruce Peninsula and often interrupted her personal and family life. Her patients just knew her as Doctor Norma.
Dr. Norma HOPKINSON, 82, died suddenly Thursday at the Grey Bruce Health Services hospital in Owen Sound.
A memorial service was to he held at 2 p.m. today at Central United Church in Lion's Head.
Although Doctor HOPKINSON had moved in recent years to Owen Sound, Lion's head is the place where both she and her husband, the late Doctor Mervyn HOPKINSON, worked together for years. They were instrumental in the construction in the late 1950s of a community hospital in the village which served as a health-care base for people living on the peninsula.
Dr. HOPKINSON, the presiding physician at more than 1,500 births, was well known throughout the region. Even on the day she died, daughter Joan IRVINE met three health-care workers in the hospital emergency department who were former colleagues or patients, including one delivered by Doctor HOPKINSON.
"She lived for other people, I would say," IRVINE said in an interview. "I walked in the night she died into the emergency room and all the people there had been touched by her. She lived for other people, to help other people."
When she retired in 1991, Doctor HOPKINSON told Sun Times reporter Pam HEAVEN she was one of only three women in the University of Western Ontario's 1946 graduating class.
Back then there was a quota that allowed only 10 per cent of medical students to be female.
Following internships at Saint Michael's and Women's College hospitals in Toronto, she began in practice in the Orillia area where she met her future husband. They moved together to Lion's head in 1951 and stayed.
For several years afterward, the HOPKINSONs were the only doctors on the Bruce Peninsula.
A retired colleague, Doctor Jim LEESON of Wiarton, knew Norma HOPKINSON as a fellow student at University of Western Ontario.
"She always seemed to be a cheerful, conscientious physician who kept up to date," LEESON said in an interview from his Sauble Beach home.
Dr. HOPKINSON was in a wheelchair during their last meeting, a dinner out in Owen Sound, but was alert and in reasonably good health otherwise, LEESON said.
Because the Bruce Peninsula is a habitat for poisonous Massassauga rattlesnakes, part of the HOPKINSON medical practice involved the treatment of snake bites. IRVINE recalls their back yard became a depository for live snakes to be used as sources of venom for used in snakebite serum.
"People brought them in, they'd get $5 (per snake)… and my cousin, John, would collect the box and fly it down" to serum producers in Toronto.
Both her parents were coroners and IRVINE recalls them studying materials on unusual causes of death.
"It was an unusual upbringing, I'll tell you that," IRVINE said.
Dr. HOPKINSON moved from Lion's head to Owen Sound to be closer to family. In Owen Sound, she was an active member of the University Women's Club and a recently formed Unitarian Church group.
Dr. HOPKINSON was also a lifelong music lover and pianist who faithfully attended concerts of the Georgian Bay Symphony. She was a passionate amateur photographer, dabbled in watercolour painting and loved exploring nature. She donated her body to the University of Western Ontario for medical research.
She maintained an active interest in politics and international affairs.
"She read two or three newspapers every day," IRVINE said. "Towards the end, the main thing was that she get her newspapers.
Born and raised in Hensall, Ontario, Dr.; HOPKINSON was among four children of Elizabeth THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Norman COOK. She is survived by three children and five grandchildren. She was the mother of Joan IRVINE of Big Bay, Mary HOPKINSON of Owen Sound and Bruce HOPKINSON of Lansdowne. She is also survived by a sister, Eleanor CORLETT of Shelburne and two brothers, Doug COOK of Hensell and Bob COOK of Grand Bend.

Woman dies in fire
Fire Marshal's office investigating blaze
By Jim ALGIE, Sun Times staff; Canadian Press
The Ontario Fire Marshal's office is investigating the cause of a house fire near Mount Forest that claimed the life of a 39-year-old Chatham, Ontario, woman.
Cindy TEBO was killed after she ran back inside her rented farmhouse to try to rescue her five-year-old grand_son T.J., who family friend Julio RAMIREZ said was visiting with his aunt.
RAMIREZ said T.J. was safely outside the house with his aunt when TEBO ran back up the stairs.
TEBO's common-law husband Bruce LAMB is in hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.
It is believed the fire began in a guest bedroom in the home on Normanby Township Road 63, northwest of Mount Forest, West Grey Police Sgt. Rob THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said in a statement issued Friday.
A child raised an alarm, which alerted other family members.
An atopsy performed Friday determined TEBO died of smoke inhalation and carbon monixide poisioning, a police news release said.
Firefighters from the North Wellington Fire Service, based in Mount Forest and Harriston, and from the West Grey service in Ayton responded to the alarm that came in about 8: 30 a.m. Thursday.
An Ontario Fire Marshal's investigator was at the scene Friday.
Police and fire marshal's investigators expect to study the fire scene for "several days," THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's statement said.
Fire Chief Ron MacEACHERN of the North Wellington Fire Service said the building was "totally engulfed" when firefighters arrived.
MacEACHERN said he could not identify the victims of the fire.
The size of the fire and water supply problems at the rural location required a response from all three area fire departments, he said.
