McDONALD, Ida McNaughton (née BRILL)
By Marylyn FRYER and Thomas OATES, Page A16
Psychiatrist, world traveller, musician, painter, bridge player. Born November 13, 1913, in Teeswater, Ontario Died July 15 in London, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 92.
Ida McNaughton BRILL was born the younger of two daughters of Samuel Robbins BRILL and Mary Etta (Minnie) McNAUGHTON. Samuel BRILL was a local Liberal powerbroker and the family once hosted former Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier for dinner at their home, Coral Villa. Doctor Ida (as she was known throughout much of her life) had a full head of Anne of Green Gables red hair (a colour she favoured right until the end).
The daughter of a prominent businessman -- who owned the oldest creamery in Ontario (second oldest in Canada, established in 1875, still in operation) -- she grew up believing she could be more than just an ordinary housewife and mother. She was smart enough to skip two grades, although her teachers considered left-handedness almost a defect. "I was persuaded to change from being left-handed to right-handed. It worked," Doctor Ida noted.
Dr. Ida met her future husband, Herbert McDONALD, when she was a 14-year-old in a local church youth group but her mother was disapproving; the young 18-year-old was a mere pig farmer. A deal was struck; it was decided that Ida would pursue her education post-high school (she graduated from Wingham District High School at 16; she had travelled there by train every Monday morning and returned home Friday). She studied at Victoria College, the University of Toronto, earning her B.A. in 1936. She earned her medical degree in 1939, interning at Saint Michael's Hospital. Dr. Ida specialized in psychiatry, only one of eight women in the class of 1940 to do so, completing her training in 1942.
Having kept her end of the deal with her father (who had already passed away), Doctor Ida ended her lengthy courtship and married Herbert McDONALD on September 26, 1942, and together they raised four children (Elizabeth, James, Jeanette and Herbert Jr.) on a small family farm. During the Second World War, she put her medical skills to use, visiting patients by horse and buggy, even bringing along her infant daughter while carrying her second child.
But once her children were old enough, Doctor Ida took a full time position at the London Psychiatric Hospital, co-founding the Behaviour Modification Unit and working there until her retirement in 1981. Doctor Ida embraced the newer practices, including new drug therapies, but she also used her faith to instill strength and hope in her patients. In her soft-spoken but firm way, she was particularly good at working with violent young offenders.
Dr. Ida loved to travel. Among her earliest adventures: trips by train to the West Coast and various cruises, including one through the Panama Canal. She also travelled extensively throughout Europe.
Upon her retirement, she once again began to travel in earnest, despite her husband's increasing infirmity, seeing China, New Zealand and Australia. Following his death in 1994, Doctor Ida began to travel with Madeline WUNSCH, her former head nurse at the hospital. She spent every winter, including last winter, in Lakeland, Florida
She played the piano and was a member of various choirs throughout her life, a life member of both the Women's Institute and the service club Soroptomist International, receiving a Woman of Distinction award in 2001. Doctor Ida also became an amateur oil painter. She loved bridge, a game she loved and played well. To the end, strong and alert, she maintained a benevolent but firm role as family matriarch. Death, when it came, was not easy for her to accept. Her love of life and her spirit were simply too strong to enter that good night so easily.
Marilyn and Thomas are Friends of Ida McDONALD. They wrote this with help from the McDonald family.
