PULLAR, Linda Louise (née GORDON) (1946-2006)
Linda Louise Pullar (née GORDON,) beloved wife, partner and best friend of John PULLAR, passed away peacefully at home, with her family, on Friday, April 14, 2006, at the age of 59 years, after a lengthy battle with cancer. Linda was born on June 9, 1946 in Arvida, Québec. She is survived by her adoring husband John her daughter Tracy; and her son Shawn. She will be missed by her son-in-law Jason PIGEON; and daughter-in-law Cindy PULLAR. She was the proud grandmother of Jack, Luke and Will PIGEON. Linda is also survived by her three amazing sisters, Barbara WING, Helen McCHEYNE and Jean ROY; and her loving brother George GORDON. Linda was predeceased by her parents John and Edith GORDON. Her extended family, spread over the country, will grieve for Linda whom they considered the life of any party. Sammy, the family dog, will miss her more than we will ever know. Married on October 12, 1968, Linda and John set up house in Pierrefonds, Montreal and, without knowing another soul in the west, they moved their little family to Calgary in 1977. Linda raised her children at home and after a long stint as the best stay-at-home-mom, she made a return to the work force in the mid-eighties. While she formed many close Friendships in the oil and gas industry before retiring in 2002, Linda's greatest joys and accomplishments were found closer to home. With a marriage of thirty-eight years, Linda enjoyed being a Grandma; she also loved knitting, sewing and playing a very mean competitive golf game. Members at Douglasdale and later at Cottonwood, Linda and John spent many hours golfing together and it was a passion they both shared. Linda always enjoyed good Friends, a good laugh, great food and wine, nice vacations, and the view from their lakefront home in Okotoks. She had a sharp sense of humour, always looked amazing, had a positive outlook on life, and was a role model to us all. This little family will sorely miss our hero, fighter, our glue, our inspiration, and our best friend. Linda had a fantastic life, full of love and laughter, and we know she would only want us to remember the very good times and to celebrate her life. The family would like to extend special thanks to the Foothills Special Services staff, the Okotoks Homecare staff and the many people who supported Linda, prayed for her, sent good wishes, and who assisted all of us by extending a helping hand. A Celebration of Linda's Life will be held at McInnis and HollowayS Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, Alberta), on Friday, April 21, 2006 at 11: 00 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

Dollmaker, renaissance artist
Known for brilliant Japanese Mataro dolls
Accomplished calligrapher, kimono designer
By Tim LAI, Staff Reporter
The death of a renowned self-taught dollmaker has created a large hole in Toronto's Japanese artistic community.
Miyoko OGURA was well known in the Japanese community for her artistic brilliance in the creation of Mataro dolls -- figures based on the daily life and folk tales of the Heian dynasty (784-1191), a period noted for its peace and cultural blossoming. She died September 29 at the age of 74.
Born in the southern prefecture of Kagoshima, OGURA was the only certified Mataro teacher in Toronto. Instructors must send in dolls for examination in order to be licensed by the Mataro Doll Craft Academy in Tokyo.
Other teachers outside Japan operate in New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Paris and Hong Kong.
Mataro dolls are a type of Kimekomi Ningyou -- wooden dolls dressed in kimonos and other Japanese garb.
They preserve the tradition of hand-carved wooden dolls developed on the riverbanks of Kyoto more than 250 years ago.
The founder of the academy, Mataro KANABAYASHI, discovered a new way to manufacture these types of dolls by mixing Paulownia sawdust with glue.
OGURA was a special teacher who was able to see all the careful details on a doll, according to a long-time student.
"There's always a point on a doll that's very difficult and that's where she would come in and help you," said Carol DOI, 62, a 17-year student of OGURA. "It takes you back into the past of Japan."
Even with her years of experience, DOI said she wouldn't be able to teach future students the way OGURA did.
Hiroko PIGGOTT, 51, a newer student, said OGURA was patient and affectionate, but challenging.
PIGGOTT joined her classes a year ago, after she saw the Mataro dolls and wanted to buy some for her children.
OGURA told PIGGOTT it would be more meaningful if she took the time to learn and make the dolls herself.
Dolls, which must be bought in kits from Japan that cost up to $1,000, can take nearly 50 hours to complete.
"She did meticulous work," PIGGOTT said.
OGURA, who immigrated to Toronto in 1959, had been teaching the Mataro art form for more than 30 years.
For the past 23 years, she'd been living alone -- she had no children -- following the death of her husband, Hisao OGURA, but her love for people brought her to many community events.
She was a helpful volunteer at the Seicho-No-Le Church, especially when it came to preparing food.
Often during classes and events at the church, OGURA would tantalize the taste buds of others with her sweet Japanese delicacies.
Red bean cakes were the favourite of 80-year-old Kay YAMAMOTO, a long-time friend and fellow practitioner at the church.
YAMAMOTO said her friend was a renaissance woman when it came to revealing Japanese art.
In addition to creating Mataro dolls, OGURA practised Odori -- traditional Japanese dancing -- was an accomplished calligrapher and designed elegant kimonos from scratch.
"She's one of these people that doesn't walk up stairs, she runs," said DOI.
In her 70s, OGURA still went to her Tai-Chi classes nearly every morning.
OGURA had hundreds of dolls in her home, many of them stored in boxes, and DOI doesn't know what will happen to the collection.
In 2004, OGURA donated sets of court and Samurai dolls to the Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care in Scarborough.
She also provided a set to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre after a big showing of her dolls at the centre in September.
"Her displays were always special because they were shows you don't see much," said Jim URA, cultural programs co-ordinator for the cultural centre.
"She wasn't there to become famous. She just enjoyed the fact that people came and looked," added DOI.
OGURA was set to travel back to Japan at the end of the month to help celebrate her mother's 100th birthday.
A memorial service will be held today at the Seicho-No-Le Church at 622 Victoria Park Ave. at 3 p.m.
