POWELL, Margaret Pearl (BABCOCK)
A teller of tales, a dreamer of dreams.
A fountain of fashion, a planner of schemes.
Could this be one person You think it untrue
Just look again dear, for that person was you!
Look back on your life -- take stock of the years,
And all you accomplished through laughter and tears.
Remember the children, how they took your hand
Remember the stories -- adventures you planned
How you nursed us in sickness and shared in our pain,
No thought of reward -- no question of gain.
You were a lady of grace, you stood out in a crowd,
Just count your achievements -- be thankful and proud!
You always looked to the future -- so much to be done,
The joys to be conquered -- love to be won!
Kept building your bridges -- planning those schemes,
Remember that you were our weaver of dreams.

BABINETZ, Jim
By Norma SHEPHERD, Page A18
Husband, father, athlete, gardener, teacher, crusader, dog-lover. Born February 18, 1940, in Brantford, Ontario Died November 12, 2005, of natural causes, aged 65.
There's a story of a hardworking homeowner whose beautiful garden prompts the parish priest to comment "My God, the Lord and yourself are partners," to which the gardener responds, "That may be, Father, but you should have seen this garden when the Lord had it on his own."
I never got to see Jim BABINETZ's multiple-awards-winning garden when "the Lord had it on his own" nor did I meet Jim's children before Jim and Jan, his wife of 41 years, had raised them to be responsible, family-centred young men, capable of speaking honestly and eloquently at their father's funeral. However, I was privileged to enjoy Jim's gifts of home-grown horseradish and feel somewhat guilty that an empty jar sits in my cupboard despite Jim's request to return it.
Jim placed high expectations upon those around him, but they were no loftier than the expectations he placed on himself. "I don't do it to win," was his mantra when presented with a Civic Rose or some such award. Jim worked in tune with the principles of seedtime and harvest, well-acquainted with the natural rewards of diligent sowing and reaping, nourishing, weeding, and pruning.
As a student Jim nurtured his love of outdoors through nine seasons of recreation work as a park supervisor and his efforts on the football field earned him a try-out with the Montreal Alouettes in 1960. "He blends size, weight, and speed in a good combination," said the Oakville Black Knights coach who recommended the lineman to Canadian Football League scouts.
In 1959, at 278 pounds, Jim was expelled from teachers college for "gross obesity." He and 11 other students were considered to be unsuitable role models. Jim challenged the Board of Education's ruling, ultimately appealing to the office of the premier, who ultimately instructed the health ministry to re-examine the case. Toronto-area newspapers followed Jim's struggle, photographing him almost daily under headlines that referred to the 19-year-old with descriptions of his girth, such as "Too Big Jim." This, despite Jim's large-boned physique and star four-sport athletic career in high school.
Jim's struggle for permission to return to college provoked petitions, inspired editorials and cartoons, and sparked a demand for the education minister's resignation. Seven other provinces, the ministry of transport, the army, navy, and air force -- even The Times of London gave its support to this determined young man. Jim's battle with his weight and the bureaucrats was profiled in Time magazine.
Within a few weeks of his dismissal, Jim carried only 265 pounds on his six-foot frame and had arranged for further weight loss to be supervised by the Banting Institute. After passing a second medical exam, Jim returned to the college that had dismissed him and engaged tutors to help him recover lost ground. He graduated two years later to begin his teaching career at a school in Oakville, Ontario
Jim's public war with the establishment resulted in a system change; potential students would now be medically evaluated prior to the start of classes instead of midway through the first term. But as one paper put it: "He had to lose to win."
Jim remained a serious person throughout his life but over the years he welcomed five Springer Spaniels into his life and his home.
Jim may have embraced teaching and sports for their structure and discipline but I suspect Jim wanted a hand in helping precious young lives reach their potential. After all, isn't that what a good gardener does?
Norma is a friend of Jim BABINETZ.
