HELBIG, Marian
Mom left the stage suddenly on Tuesday, October 31, 2006 in the middle of a brilliant set. She was a singer, model, mother, grandmother extraordinaire, and passionate friend who leaves a devastating hole in our lives. We will miss her sense of humour, her style, her beauty and grace, and most of all her incredible warmth and devotion to her family. Mom would want us to remember her long years of cottage freeloading, berry picking and freestyle swimming, globetrotting with kindred spirits, and many nights of jazz to which she brought her inimitable zest and insouciance. We also remember the talented dressmaker, fabulous cook, and hostess who made each legendary Christmas party a destination. We will terribly miss watching the Leafs, doing crosswords and wonderful conversation with this proud Canadian and protoenvironmentalist. She survived in the face of lupus for over 45 years, and taught us to aspire to her noble example. We'll make certain her memory stays alive and bright in her grandchildren's lives. Marian will be deeply missed by her children Karla RODGERS, Avril HELBIG (and spouse Mike HANSEN,) Jason HELBIG and wife Cathy) and grandchildren Michelle, Sadie, Wilder, Greer and Bridget. She is also mourned by her extended family William McCULLOCK, Loretta McCULLOCK, Valida RAHAL, Walter McCULLOCK, Willa LEJOUR, Christina FINNEY and their families. She was predeceased by her loving husband Herbert HELBIG. Visitation at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West (2 stoplights west of Yonge Street), on Sunday, November 5, 2006 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at St. Peter's Anglican Church, 188 Carlton Street (between Jarvis and Parliament Streets), on Monday, November 6, 2006 at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at Marian's residence after the service. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Marian Helbig Memorial Trust in support of an emerging Canadian jazz talent (www.marianhelbig.com). 'I'm walking on eggs, I'm walking on jelly legs…'

For this a journey that we all must take And each must go alone It's all apart of the master plan A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart Go to the Friends we know And bury your sorrow's in doing Good deeds Miss Me - but let me go.

Surgeon excelled at four sports
By John HERBERT, Free Press Golf Reporter, Sun., September 24, One of Western's all-time sports greats, Reg ORT was also one of the university's most outstanding citizens.
The 78-year-old ORT died recently in Tillsonburg Memorial Hospital after a long illness.
A funeral service was held Friday in Tillsonburg where he practised general surgery for 33 years.
A member of Western's W Club sports hall of fame since 1984, ORT was recruited by long-time friend Jack FAIRS to come to Western from his hometown of Welland to play football for coach Johnny METRAS.
Before graduating with an honours degree in physical education in 1953, ORT starred in football, swimming, hockey and wrestling.
He was a member of the 1953 Western football team that won the Yates Cup Ontario senior intercollegiate championship for the eighth time.
After teaching for a few years, ORT returned to Western to study medicine and graduated in 1957.
He also earned his fellowship in general surgery in 1962 and a fellowship in the American College of Surgeons in 1966.
While at Western, ORT also won two of Western's most prestigious awards for achievement in athletics, academics and university life -- the Doctor Claude Brown Memorial Award and the Hon. G. Howard Ferguson Award.
FAIRS first met ORT in Welland in the late 1940s when they played on the same baseball team. At the time, FAIRS was also recruiting talent for the Western football team and became aware ORT was an outstanding high school prospect.
"He was a big lineman and Johnny METRAS obviously liked him," said FAIRS, also an assistant coach with the Mustangs. "In those days, linemen weren't as big as today and he was bigger than most when he came to Western. He was an outstanding player who played with some of the best teams Western had at the time."
"He was a four-star athlete," said another long-time friend Bob GAGE, a former London Free Press sports writer who covered Western sports for decades. "He played four sports and that's not done today. He was one of the best and one of the last to play four sports. He was one of the last to graduate in physical education and then become a doctor.
"What impressed me was his athletic ability," GAGE said. "He was certainly a likeable guy. Everybody liked him."
ORT is survived by his wife of 50 years, Joan (CRANSTON) ORT, and their children Chris ORT, Lisa RAHN of Vancouver and Robert ORT of Guelph.
Joan ORT was a teacher at Central secondary school.
