Elinor MELVILLE, 65: Friends were family
'She really gathered us in,' buddy says
Elinor MELVILLE, 65, brilliant scholar
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
She died as she lived, surrounded by Friends. Elinor MELVILLE never married ("Just lucky, I guess" she'd say if questioned), and when she died at 65 of cancer -- in the early hours of March 10 in the palliative care unit at Toronto Grace Hospital -- she had no known relatives.
Instead, she had Friends from two hemispheres, both of her careers and both of the countries where she chose to live during the past two decades.
Fierce Friends, loyal Friends, who wouldn't let her die alone, and who now feel doubly bereft because they lost someone who had become family.
"Elinor has had an incredible ability to create family; always a family of her own choosing," said Joan Harkness, a friend who uses MELVILLE and her circle of Friends as an example of one type of family when she teaches sociology at the University of Victoria.
"She had this talent; she really gathered us in," said Morris Thompson, an American journalist who rented and is now buying MELVILLE's beloved adobe home in Mexico. "Unlike the rest of us, she did not have to consider whether she liked Aunt Sally or cousin Mary when choosing the people in her life. She gave me the greatest compliment when she once told me I was like a really irritating younger brother."
An associate history professor at York University, MELVILLE was a brilliant scholar who wrote A Plague of Sheep, a pioneering work of environmental history in which she said that it was the introduction of European plants and animals in the 16th century that turned the Valley of Mezquital, an important valley north of Mexico City, into a desert in less than a century.
"She had a way in her academic life and in her personal life that she could make us look at things differently," said Thompson.
Elinor Gordon Ker MELVILLE was born in Papua New Guinea. Her father was a supervisor of British mines there; she and her mother caught the last flight out of the country before the Japanese invaded in World War 2 and went to stay with her father's only relatives, two spinster sisters living in Australia. When her father died four years later, her mother, tired of living under the matriarchal rule, moved them to New Zealand, where they lived on a sheep ranch. Mother worked as the district nurse and daughter learned how to ride horses and shoot.
Solitary and sickly -- MELVILLE told Friends she should have died about six times as a child -- she grew into a tall, mouthy adolescent who was tossed from three schools. Encouraged to be independent by her mother, who used to take her obstreperous daughter on her own dates as a romantic deterrent as much as a chaperone, she sailed for Newfoundland soon after getting a degree in physiotherapy in Sydney, Australia.
She later went back to school, receiving her B.A. from U of T's Scarborough campus in 1972, her M.A. and then her Ph. D. in anthropology from the University of Michigan. Her research had led her to Mexico 25 years ago, a country that charmed her. She told Friends she felt as if she had come home, that here was a country that fit her.
Using her small inheritance from her mother, she bought a lot in Tlayacapan, Morelos, in the hills about 95 kilometres south of Mexico City. She designed her adobe home and the subsequent guesthouse, where she always stayed whenever she had visitors. She took under her wing the family of her gardener, Augustine, paying for his children's education, and had a longstanding affair with a local man she called "the love of her life" -- but never stayed there longer than 10 or 12 weeks.
She always returned to Toronto, where she had her work and usually another house to renovate and decorate in rich, warm colours. She bought and sold five houses in 15 years. Her Friends remember rooms painted in bright blue and one in the colours of red, yellow and orange that looked as if it was on fire -- and recall one dinner party at which her guests had to crawl out a window to access the table set up on the deck.
MELVILLE was 6 feet, a dramatic, dashing woman with a penchant for hats and Eileen Fisher designs, who would moan with pleasure when eating a good steak and who never walked but strode.
"The world didn't move fast enough for her," said Ruth McGUINNESS, who admitted she found MELVILLE "daunting" the first time they met.
It was 2000 and the two were in Buffalo, undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Four of them became Friends (only two survived). They'd meet at 4 p.m. so MELVILLE could watch Tom Selleck reruns they made a pact that none would join a support group. "We decided we would have none of those people crying in their soup," said McGuinness.
But in 2002, MELVILLE was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. "She raged against the cancer; she didn't just fight it," said McGuinness.
She continued to teach three classes at York until the fall of 2004. Her Friends remember her lecturing a grad student as she was being wheeled down a hospital hallway on a stretcher. Last July she officially went on sabbatical.
Often she stayed with McGUINNESS and her husband, Rory, after a hospital stint, until she was strong enough to return to her own home. But after last Christmas, she was noticeably weaker and stayed with her friend Agueda SHUBERT, the wife of a York colleague.
SHUBERT was one of the dozen Friends who met in February to form MELVILLE's care team. They didn't all know one another, although they knew of each other. "She talked about her Friends to us all," said Mireya Cunningham. "She was always saying wonderful things about us to others."
There was no set schedule in place -- MELVILLE was still too independent to want that -- but there was a new intimacy with her. She let friend Mireya Cunningham, who describes herself as a "touchy" person, hold her hand. "There is a great degree of intimacy involved in being with someone who is ill. It's a world of little losses," said Ruth McGUINNESS.
As well as gains. "She taught me to cherish my Friends," said Jean LEVY, the department assistant at York.
On Thursday, March 9, McGUINESS sent out an email -- in English and Spanish -- and her Friends came flooding to the hospital. Her York colleague Jeannette NEESON read her a poem from a 1940s anthology; Thompson read Shakespearean sonnets. Tea was served and the conversation flowed all around MELVILLE, as she lay dying.
Her Friends held a memorial service for her in Toronto the following Tuesday at 7 p.m. It was 4 p.m. in Victoria, British Columbia where Joan Harkness was teaching her Sociology 100 class about Elinor MELVILLE.
"I put her death notice up on the overhead projector and talked about her," she said. "I wanted to be part of a community of people thinking of Elinor at the same time."
She told her students that this is the kind of impact one life can have, that this is what they can do. They can create a family they can create their own life; their life can be an act of creation just like hers.

Elderly woman dies in blaze
Friends said the Platt's Lane resident was blind and barely mobile.
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter, Sat., February 4, 2006
An elderly woman is dead after a fire ripped through her ground-floor apartment in west London last night.
London police and firefighters wouldn't identify the victim of the blaze at 261 Platt's Lane, but Friends huddled outside said it was Ruby YAHNKE, an elderly woman who was blind and barely mobile.
"The poor lady -- she couldn't see anything and she could hardly walk," said an emotional Dianne EDWARDS, who visited the senior twice a day to help care for her dog.
"She was a wonderful woman. I just saw her today and everything was fine. Now this," EDWARDS said.
The fire, which started shortly after 8: 30 p.m., charred YAHNKE's first-floor apartment and sent smoke billowing out her windows, smashed by firefighters trying to contain the blaze.
Though YAHNKE herself did not escape the fire, her dog, a small Shih Tzu named Molly, was brought out by firefighters and handed to EDWARDS.
"She's okay, just a little black," EDWARDS said of the dog she walked twice a day.
"She's gonna miss her mom."
Dozens of residents of the five-storey building were forced to evacuate because of heavy smoke.
They huddled outside and in a nearby building for nearly two hours as police and firefighters investigated.
"The hallways and stairwells were full of smoke and it smelled really strong," said Ramsey SHUCK, who lives on the third floor.
"Smoke was just billowing out of the first-floor apartment," he said.
Deputy fire Chief Dave KITTERMAN said last night it was unclear how much damage the building sustained in the blaze.
He did say the first-floor apartment where the fire originated received "severe" damage.
KITTERMAN didn't know what sparked the fatal blaze, but neighbours said YAHNKE was a smoker.
"It's just so sad," EDWARDS said. "She's a beautiful person."

William SIBBALD, Doctor And Educator (1946-2006)
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook and Women's College hospitals in Toronto was an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who guided the city through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and helped alter the nature of intensive-care treatment in Canada
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Bill SIBBALD was an ideas machine. Strategies, suggestions and potential solutions cascaded from his lips at the Ontario teaching hospitals where he built an international reputation, at global medical conferences and around the family dinner table.
His ideas helped to change the face of intensive-care treatment in Canada, to shape the way health care is delivered in Ontario, to guide Toronto through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis of 2003 and to inspire a new generation of critical-care professionals.
Dr. William John SIBBALD was director of critical care at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, and a professor at the University of Western Ontario from 1977 until 2000. Then he became physician-in-chief at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. In both roles, he was a physician, teacher, leader, mentor and researcher.
"I used to tell people who didn't know him they should ignore something the first time he mentioned it," says Doctor Frank RUTLEDGE, who heads the critical-care programs at Victoria Hospital and Western. "They should pay attention the second time. The third time they should put it at the top of their pile. He threw out so many ideas, if you tried to work on everything the first time it was mentioned, you'd never get anything done." Doctor Steven SHUMAK, deputy physician-in-chief, says many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas involved medical informatics, the application of computers and information systems to improve patient care and education.
Colleagues remember him as gruff but generous, an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who smoked heavily in his early years to burn off excess energy, but who gave it up after an operation for salivary gland cancer. He was an advocate for those he worked with, giving them his undivided attention in private meetings. In the workplace or on the golf course, he strove for perfection, but often interrupted a game to respond to a BlackBerry message. He occasionally told off-colour jokes and he followed hockey religiously, even when out of the country.
Dr. SIBBALD started work before dawn, even on weekends, so he could be home to spend time with his wife and five children. He coached his sons in hockey, attended his children's sporting events and told them all he was their "biggest cheerleader."
Over his career, Doctor SIBBALD wrote about 250 articles and editorials, more than 70 book chapters and some major textbooks on critical care. He was invited to give some 550 lectures in 16 countries. He held many positions with medical and critical-care associations.
Dr. Ron HOLLIDAY, a general surgeon at Victoria Hospital and a professor of surgery at Western, says Doctor SIBBALD was often thinking of issues five or 10 years down the road. And he always knew who to approach to get around the system. "We called it the SIBBALD end run," he says.
Critical-care experts around the world knew him as a friend and a trendsetter. "He was a fantastic scientist and a great clinician respected by all," says Doctor Jean-Louis Vincent, a professor of intensive care at the Free University of Brussels. "He could always ask the right question and raise the appropriate issue in any kind of debate or scientific discussion."
Bill SIBBALD, as his Friends called him, was the middle of three children of Jack SIBBALD, a banker, and Shirley (née STONE) who grew up in a suburb of Guelph, Ontario As a boy, he played basketball, football, badminton and hockey.
Gale KAY, now a retired Presbyterian minister, babysat him when he was about 12. "He was quite clear that he was going to be a doctor," she says, "not that he wanted to be a doctor, but that he was going to be one."
He was graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1970 and stayed on to complete a residency in internal medicine in 1974. That was the year he married Connie ECKERSLEY, a nurse he worked with in intensive care.
From 1974 to 1976, he did a fellowship in critical-care trauma at Wayne State University School of Medicine, in Detroit. The specialty was in its infancy in Canada at the time, and he returned to London as one of the country's few experts in the field.
At the time, Victoria Hospital had become "a massive zone of deferred maintenance," according to Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto and a long-time friend. Doctor Adam LINTON, the hospital's physician-in-chief, put the young Doctor SIBBALD in charge of the intensive-care department where he overcame professional turf wars and put together a team of specialists in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Doctor Trevor LOBB, an anesthetist at the hospital, says Doctor SIBBALD helped change "a glorified recovery room" into a critical-care trauma centre that treated patients flown in by helicopter and that trained fellows who came from around the world. In 1976, he made the news for using an armed forces pressure suit to control massive bleeding in a patient. A year later, he was in the headlines for telling a medical conference in France that the common practice of lowering the head of a critically ill shock victim might actually have detrimental effects.
In one highly publicized incident, Doctor SIBBALD, accompanied by Dr. HOLLIDAY, went to court in the middle of the night seeking permission for a blood transfusion to save the life of a Jehovah's witness boy. The judge bypassed the family's religious objections by making the boy a ward of the court, allowing the procedure to go ahead.
Much of Doctor SIBBALD's research centred on sepsis (disease-causing agents in the blood), trauma, blood substitutes, and ethical issues involving life-support and end of life. In later years, he branched out into the field of health-care policy and delivery.
For many years, he used sheep to study infections in people. "In our research lab at Victoria Hospital, you could hear the sheep baaing," Doctor HOLLIDAY says. Doctor SIBBALD introduced infections into the animals and studied the effects. Then he treated the sheep, so they didn't have to be destroyed.
He served as co-chairman of a Working Group on Critical Care in Ontario, which presented its findings to the province's health ministry in 1991. Over the years, he received many honours, including a distinguished investigator award from the American College of Critical Care Medicine in 1998.
Dr. SIBBALD turned down many job offers in the United States, and in 2000 he moved to Toronto as Sunnybrook's physician-in-chief. That put him on the front lines when many of the patients from the 2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome ended up at Sunnybrook. He threw his back out while dealing with the crisis, so his bed at home became the command post where he kept in contact with officials from hospitals, government and the military.
In one phone call, he told Doctor Tom STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, director of critical care at Toronto's Mount Sinai and University Health Network, that his staff was starting to become ill. "He's a strong man, but he broke down crying," said Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. "It struck me how soft and sensitive he is."
Two back operations followed. Doctor SIBBALD returned to work after each of them, even though he had to hobble around the hallways.
After the severe acute respiratory syndrome emergency ended, Ontario's ministry of health set up a Critical Care Steering Committee. Doctor SIBBALD and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART were among its members. Many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas showed up in the report and are now being implemented, Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART says.
In November, 2004, Doctor SIBBALD was diagnosed with colon cancer. He carried on working and, hoping for a remedy, sought treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. In early September, he was told the end was near. He resigned as Sunnybrook's chief of medicine on September 5 and spent the following week as a patient in the hospital.
Staff members still came to him for advice. Doctor Andreas LAUPACIS, now the director of a research institute at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital, asked for his opinion on an upcoming debate. "His eyes lit up," Doctor LAUPACIS says. "His energy came back. He said, 'Look at this article and that article and here's the point I would be making.' "
Dr. SIBBALD went Toronto on September 12. A day later, his fourth grandchild was born in Vancouver. His son Martyn phoned to say the baby would be called William. The next morning Doctor SIBBALD was shown an e-mailed photo of his new namesake. He died later that day.
William John SIBBALD was born in London, Ontario, on June 28, 1946. He died of colon cancer at his Toronto home on September 14, 2006. He was 60. He leaves his wife Connie; children Tammie, Martyn, Robert, Katie and Georgie; four grandchildren; his mother, Shirley, and sisters Nancy DAVIDSON and Susan TAILOR/TAYLOR.

SHUTTLEWORTH o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-11-25 published
MILLARD, Carl (November 28, 1913-November 21, 2006)
Carl MILLARD was born on a snowy November 28 day in 1913 on his father's 100 acre farm at Folden's Corners, near Ingersoll, Ontario. It was only 10 years after the Wright Brothers first flight, and their invention of the 'flying machine' and Carl's path through life were going to intersect. But before that happening, Carl would be going to the one-room school house, where Grade 1 was in the back row and Grade 8 was in the front row, and it was here in Grade 8 that the school marm took a disliking to young Carl. Another boy, the school prankster, had loaded all the students' bench seats with cap pistol sparkers so that when the seats were slammed down to start the morning class there erupted a halluva lot of noise and smoke. Carl's delight at the incident annoyed the school marm, and she tried to threaten Carl into revealing the culprit, but she ran up against a boy with principles whose attitude was 'If you want to catch somebody, do it yourself, you're not going to use me', and so it came to be that young Carl was deliberately failed. He would have to repeat Grade 8. Carl's mother, Vera (SHUTTLEWORTH, 1890-1960,) was a no-nonsense hard working farm wife who went into battle with the school board, who eventually and reluctantly would allow Carl the opportunity to write the Grade 8 exams again. But there was a hitch, he would have to wait until next year. He spent the next year working on the farm, and when he did pass the exams the following year he had already been working full-time and given up the plans to study mechanical engineering. Carl's father, Earl (1888-1978), bought a used Model T in 1925, and it wasn't long before Carl was driving the milk cans to the cheese factory, even though he was only 12 years old, and changing engine main bearings before he was not yet a teenager. His natural talents included learning the accordion, completely self-taught, on an old instrument picked up at an auction. He became a master player, all by ear. He could not read one note of sheet music. Ploughing on the farm was done with a one-furrow handplough pulled by a team of two horses, and it was on such a day when Carl was 15 years old, a 'big, red monoplane' thundered directly overhead flying low under a misty cloud cover, eastbound, in a London, Ontario to London, England record attempt. (Unfortunately the Stinson Detroiter vanished over the Atlantic). The sight of the airplane had a lasting effect. From that moment on, the young boy dreamed of turning in the plough for the cockpit, but flying lessons were $50 an hour and the average wage was 25¢ an hour. So it was going to take a lot of determination to achieve this goal. When Carl was 17, he decided to start his own business (in the depression!) to earn enough money to finance his flying ambitions. He bought an old truck that was broken, fixed it up and got it running again. His first customer was a farmer who owned a breeding bull that needed to be transported from farm to farm during breeding season. The bull got to like riding around in the truck, his head over the cab with the wind in his face. He even learned how to lean into the corners. One day, when going down a steep hill with a sharp right turn at the bottom, Carl applied the brakes to find they had failed and his foot was on the floor. He and the farmer looked at each other with the same question in their eyes. Straight ahead into the ditch or maybe roll it on the corner? Carl took a chance and made the sharp turn. Sure enough, that bull leaned heavily into the corner and saved the day. In 1939, the fledgling TransCanada Airlines expanded operations to inaugurate a coast-to-coast route, and Carl became the 46th pilot to be hired by TransCanada Airlines. Carl retired from TransCanada Airlines in 1954 as second senior Captain in Toronto, having flown Lockheed 14, 18, Douglas DC3 and North Stars for 15,000 hours. Carl enjoyed telling the story about Mary, a newly hired stewardess who had not gotten to know many people on the airline, yet, when she took a flight to New York and back on the North Star. She served the pilots dinner on the way back. After the flight debriefing, the crew went on their own ways. Carl went home and wasn't in long when the phone rang. It was his younger brother George. Now George and Carl has started a little cab company, which later became Metro Cab, because they had a couple of cars for sale that weren't moving. 'Hey Carl, I've got a fare for you, are you free'. Carl put on his cab driver tunic and cap, and arrived at the apartment building. When he knocked on the door, he found the fare to be Mary. She was stunned to see the North Star Captain of an hour ago to actually be a cab driver. 'Are you a cab driver impersonating as an airline captain?' she asked in disbelief. 'No,' replied Carl, 'just a pilot who is now making an honest living.' Carl and Dell formed Millard Auto Aero Marine Ltd. in 1946, and over the next 15 years were Canadian distributors for Steelcraft Boats, Beech Aircraft, Fleet Aircraft and Bellanca Aircraft. The office headquarters was the little sunroom at the back of the tiny bungalow at 127 St. Clements Avenue. Of his many Friends, Carl held a special regard and respect for the aircraft design genius Giuseppe Bellanca, who created outstanding planes well ahead of the competition in terms of efficiency. In 1927 his 'Columbia' flew from New York to Germany and stayed aloft for 46 hours. The pilot was Clarence Chamberlin, who became Bellanca's chief test pilot. When Carl took on being Canadian distributor for Bellanca, he got to know these aviation celebrities as personal Friends. One day Carl dropped into the factory at Wilmington, Delaware to have lunch with Clarence. Carl's steed was a Bellanca Cruisemaster that hadn't yet sold, and one that he had installed on the side of the cowling a venturi for driving the turn and bank, which was the common modification in those days. After lunch, Carl noticed on his preflight walkaround that the venturi was missing. He asked the Bellanca foreman who was standing close by, what happened to the venturi. The foreman nodded over his shoulder to the second floor office of the hangar where Giuseppe was standing looking out. The foreman said 'The old man told me he couldn't bear to see parasite drag on his design and to move it to inside the cowling. Also it won't ice up in there'. Carl and Giuseppe nodded to each other. Such was the attention to minute detail of Bellanca. Improvement of aircraft for operation in the Canadian environment occupied Carl's mechanical creativeness. he held Supplemental Type Certificates for several inventions, which included Stinson floatplane conversion to 190 hp., Stinson metallization, Cessna 170 floatplane to 165 hp., Piper Apache to 180 hp., Stinson SR-10 cargo door installation. DC3 cabin heating system, and improved carburetor heat box design. Post-war light aircraft manufacturers produced thousands of machines for the exploding private market, and weather related accidents increased at an alarming rate. Carl believed that better qualified pilots in the private sector was the key to materially reducing the accidents, and he went on a crusade promoting Instrument Flight Rules training for the private pilot, at that time unheard of, as the Instrument Rating was then a qualification held only by airline pilots. For this work he was awarded the 1954 Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Award for the Canadian contributing the most to general aviation. He was also a founding director of Canadian Owners and Pilots Association, an organization that has been essential to the growth of general aviation in Canada. When Carl imported into Canada the Cessna Citation executive jet, the Department of Transport sent out a flight inspector to take him on a check ride.
