Marion WEYER, 87: A secret life
Marion WEYER joined the Royal Air Force and served in Kingston for three years during World War 2.
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Marion WEYER had a secret. Only a few people knew it; no one else suspected it.
The 25-year Imperial Oil employee -- an accounting clerk, the kind of employee considered the bedrock of a company -- retired in 1982 with a pension based on an annual salary of $22,000.
Hers seemed an ordinary life: WEYER was single, always well turned out, and happy and independent in her Thorncliffe Park apartment. She was something of a hotshot in Esso's bowling league for retirees, a crossword puzzle aficionado, an avid reader and for years drove about town in a Volkswagen Beetle. She was a handsome woman, poised and tall with a proud carriage.
Her secret was born September 29, 1956, when WEYER was 37. It was a common enough story of that straitlaced time -- a hushed, hidden pregnancy, because the father of Mary Ann Constance was WEYER's boss, a man 10 years her junior on his way up who was single but had no intention of marrying her.
Social history records kept by the Catholic children's aid only hint at WEYER's anguish: "Birth mother was very concerned about the baby and took several months to make up her mind to place an adoption. She visited the baby regularly and really wanted to keep her but eventually said it was not possible. She kept in touch with the birth father and possibly hoped for marriage. He was not interested and told her she should place her for adoption."
In those days -- just 50 years ago -- the birth mother had to appear in court and physically hand the baby over to the adoptive parents. It was the saddest day in WEYER's life -- and she went through it alone.
"As far as I know, my dad and Uncle Jack would have done nothing but give her hell, but I think she thought she was letting the family down. Fifty years ago, this was something terrible," said Joan WEYER, a mother of eight who kept her aunt's secret for close to 40 years.
They had been sitting together in the dining room of the Peterborough home of Jack WEYER, Marion's eldest brother, the family patriarch after the death of their Irish Catholic parents, when Joan's two little girls came running in from the backyard and climbed up onto both women's laps. "[Marion] said to me, 'You know, Joanie, I had a little girl' and I didn't know what she meant. I thought she meant she had passed away, but then she said she had given her up for adoption."
Marion WEYER was the baby in a family with three protective older brothers, growing up in a town where the girls coming home from convent school had to walk on the opposite side of the street from the boys. She left Peterborough when she joined the Royal Air Force, and served in Kingston for three years before taking a job in a finance company after the war.
It was there she met her child's father, and it was then that her family went three years without seeing her. The family assumed she was busy with her life in Toronto. Her goddaughter and niece, Jeanne D'ERAMO, who is Joan WEYER's sister, often spent a week in the summer with her glamorous aunt. "We were very close," D'ERAMO said.
But she was shocked the day in 1990 when she dropped by her aunt's home. "As soon as I opened the door, she could hardly wait to tell me the news," D'ERAMO recalled. "Connie had sent her a note. She showed me her photo. I was amazed." It was the only time WEYER opened up about her daughter.
Connie REEVE had registered with the adoption agency to locate her birth mother in 1982 while still an articling law student. At that time, both parties had to register before the agency would turn over information, and WEYER hadn't registered. In 1990, after the disclosure rules were loosened, REEVE was told her birth mother's name.
They exchanged notes and photos. Then, on April 18, REEVE phoned WEYER. They met for lunch at the Inn on the Park -- it was awkward and fascinating, REEVE recalled. She didn't look like her birth mother -- different height, build and eye colour. "It is strangers getting to know one another," she said.
REEVE had been raised as one of three adopted children in a loving family in Thornhill. "There are adoptees who are resentful," she said. "I never felt that. I felt welcomed and special. I never had to get over feelings of abandonment. Marion visited me (as a baby). It's not like I didn't have someone to care for me."
They forged a Friendship, phoning, going out to dinner, spending every Christmas Eve together. WEYER refused to come to the Christmas celebrations of REEVE's adoptive family, but the two mothers once met over lunch. REEVE's adoptive mother had made a photo book for WEYER, who had only one 1958 photo of her daughter.
But WEYER was as private with REEVE as with her own family. She ducked the issue when REEVE asked if she would tell her family about her. As for REEVE's birth father, WEYER said she cut any contact -- and cut his likeness out of her photos -- when he refused to see his baby. Only after knowing REEVE for five years did she tell her his name.
"Marion never expressed her emotions in plain language," REEVE said, "but she wanted to keep contact with me."
It was REEVE who found WEYER collapsed in her apartment this fall after being unable to reach her by phone. And it was REEVE who was with her the night before she died in hospital of a bleeding gastric ulcer November 2, at age 87. The nurses said WEYER's heartbeat always improved when REEVE visited.
REEVE had to go through WEYER's phone book to locate the family to tell them about the death. Two weeks after WEYER died, many of them met REEVE for the first time at a Peterborough cemetery.
"I would have introduced her to every relative I have," said Joan WEYER. " She is certainly someone to be proud of."
"Her family were welcoming and seemed really nice. I don't know why she wouldn't have told them all," said REEVE.
In clearing out WEYER's effects, she discovered Marion had kept every card from the bouquets REEVE had sent for the past 15 Mother's Days.
"That's the whole thing about secrets. They get bigger and bigger over time."

Elderly woman killed in hit and run
By Hilda HOY, Staff Reporter
An elderly Mississauga woman is dead after being struck yesterday by a vehicle that hit her while backing up before speeding away, police say.
Both the driver and passenger jumped out of the car and looked at the victim before taking off, witnesses: told police.
The 75-year-old victim had been crossing from the west side of Hurontario Street, just north of Dundas Street, at about 3 p.m.
She was hit when a car on Dundas St. suddenly went into reverse, police said. "It appears they missed their turn and backed up and hit her," Peel police Const. Kathy WEYLIE said.
Kwai Lin TAM was taken to hospital, but later died.
She was not at a designated crosswalk when she was hit, WEYLIE said.
Investigators are looking for a small, dark car, possibly a Honda or Toyota, last seen on John St. Both the driver and the passenger are described as men in their early 20s.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 905-453-2121, ext. 3710, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Cyclist falls to death from bridge
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
A 46-year-old man is dead following a bizarre bicycle accident on a bridge in Mississauga.
According to witnesses, Andrzej SACAWA lost control yesterday morning as he was riding along a sidewalk on a bridge on Burnhamthorpe Rd. over the Credit River -- and then tumbled over the railing to his death.
Police said SACAWA's handlebars somehow became lodged in the railing as he was riding across the bridge that crosses the Credit River in the area between Mississauga Rd. and Creditview Rd.
Suddenly, he lost control of his mountain bike, then tumbled over the handlebars and fell about 28 metres to his death.
A coroner pronounced him dead at the scene, police said.
"The railing is apparently quite low if you're on a bike," Peel Constable Kathy WEYLIE said.
Police officials said no other people or vehicles were involved in the bridge tragedy.

SCHEEL, Dorothy Florence (KNOTT)
Of Wilson Avenue, Delhi passed away peacefully at the London H.S.C., Victoria Hospital on Sunday, February 26, 2006 in her 79th year. Dorothy was a loving partner and wife for 62 years. She was born in Dorchester and married at 17. In childhood, she is remembered as the one always on the go and 78 years later it was still challenging to keep up to her. Dorothy was a devoted and loving mother to Jan and Michael who learned the meaning of determination, fun and integrity. She was a very proud grandmother of Abby and Kate, and was always delighted by their visits. To Dorothy's many dear Friends, her sense of fun and humour, her loyalty, common sense and honesty were always appreciated. With her sharp mind, intelligence, keen sense of business and financial affairs, she and Mike were successful in all they endeavoured. Her love of life showed up on the dance floor, playing a vigorous game of cribbage or euchre, creating a beautiful flower garden, spending a weekend with her sister Audrey, celebrating special occasions with joy, reading a favourite new book, creating delicious meals, spending time alone or taking a drive to Port Dover for a foot long hot dog and some people watching. After retirement one of Dorothy and Mike's favourite things was to jump into the car and go for a drive. It didn't matter where or for how long. But you can be sure it would always be Dorothy in the driver's seat! Throughout her 78 years, Dorothy touched the lives and hearts of many. She was deeply loved and will be deeply missed. Former Dorothy Florence KNOTT. Beloved wife of Michael SCHEEL. Loving mother of Jan SCHEEL (Margie COGILL) and the Late Michael SCHEEL Jr. (1999) and his wife Jane SCHEEL. Cherished grandmother of Abby and Kate SCHEEL. Dearest sister of Audrey McGUGAN and Jean SMITH (Verne.) Also survived by her sisters-in-law Dorothy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Lee), Anne SCHEEL, Julie SCHEEL and by her brother-in-law Fred MERZ (Evelyn) and several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her sisters Velma ROBBINS (Hap) and Millie WEYMOUTH (George,) her brother Allan KNOTT (Ann) and by her brothers-in-law John McGUGAN, John SCHEEL, Fritz SCHEEL (Peg) and Andrew SCHEEL. Friends may call at the Murphy Funeral Home, Delhi for visitation on Wednesday from 2: 00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Thursday, March 2nd at 11: 00 a.m. with Pastor Larry LABATT officiating.
