WALLACE, Michael Sydney (March 21, 1927-June 12, 2007)
Our family is sad to announce that Mike passed away at home on Tuesday, June 12 with Josie by his side. Married to Josephine DILL 53 years ago, Mike led the family from Montreal to Toronto, out to Winnipeg and then finally back to Toronto. Together they raised a great family of four children: Alistair (Corinne SCHUSTER,) Sarah (Paul HAMBLETON,) Derek (MaryAnn LEE) and Christopher (Katie THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.) He will always be remembered as a wonderful grandfather by Teighan, Aiden, Ava, Aman, Catherine, Annie, Lizzy and Michael. So proud of his grandfather and great-grandfather's founding role at Bishop's College School, Mike attended Bishop's College School and later achieved his C.A. designation. He worked and made many Friends over the years at MacDonald Currie, Urwick Currie, P.S. Ross, Bay Bronze Inc., Wilson Office Specialty, Harrison and Crossfield, and finally, AC Technical, where he happily worked into his seventies. Being Mike meant: countless visits to the hockey rink, trips to the Winnipeg Winter Club, Chairman of the Board at Saint_John's Ravenscourt, always wishing for a sailboat at his birthday, helping with the L.P.A.A., and getting out on the course for a round of golf. A trip last summer to Tadoussac completed an important circle for Mike, returning to a place so special to him. Mike's love for life, his never ending support, love and encouragement, and his great sense of humour will be with us always. Husband, father, grandfather&hellip he will be so missed by all of us. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, June 14 and 1-3 and 7-9 p.m. Friday, June 15. Service at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 16 in Saint John's York Mills, 19 Don Ridge Drive, followed by a private family interment. Mike would have been so pleased if you would consider a donation to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 Unviersity Avenue, Toronto M5G 2M9 or a charity important to you.

Charmion KING, Actress: (1925-2007)
The grande dame of Canadian theatre was known for her dynamic stage presence, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
In a career that spanned 60 years on stage, radio, television and film, Charmion KING was known for her dynamic stage presence, her throaty laugh, her beauty, her dedication to the theatre, and her professionalism. Of all playwrights she loved Chekhov the best and no wonder, for she delivered many of her best performances in his work.
"She was the grande dame of Canadian Theatre," Albert SCHULTZ, artistic director of The Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto, said yesterday. Ms. KING joined the company in its third season (2000) to play a character in Noël Coward's Present Laughter. "We needed one of those great dames who could come on stage and convince you that she could function under a couple of martinis and be as witty as the next person in the room and bring with her a great aristocratic bearing and great wit and elegance -- and that was Charm," he said.
The only child of Charles KING, a businessman who worked for Neilsen's (and was called The Candy Man, according to his granddaughter Leah) and his wife Amabel (née REEVES,) Charmion KING spent her earliest years in The Beach area of Toronto in a house fronting the boardwalk. Even as a five-year-old, she dreamed of becoming an actress. After the family moved to Forest Hill, she attended Bishop Strachan, the private girls' school, where she often played male roles in plays. In the summers she went to Tanamakoon, the girls' camp where the late Dora Mavor Moore had begun teaching musical theatre in the 1930s.
She enrolled in University College at the University of Toronto in the early 1940s, where she acted in college productions. In 1944, The Globe and Mail reported that she had been offered a screen test by Warner Brothers after talent scouts for the film studio had seen her perform in Thunder Rock. The 19-year-old star of the University College Players' Guild had declined, saying "this is just a school play."
Her best work was probably done at the Hart House Theatre under the direction of Robert GILL, an American actor who had worked at the Cleveland Playhouse. At the time, only men were allowed to use Hart House, the recreational and athletic facility that had been given to the university by the Massey family, but the theatre was run by a different administration, one that welcomed women on its stage after the war.
Mr. GILL, who headed Hart House Productions, was an "enormous influence," Ms. KING told Susan LAWRENCE in 2002 for an article in the University of Toronto magazine. "He taught me professional behaviour as an actress." In her most memorable role at university, she played the title role in Saint Joan at Hart House Theatre in 1947, the year she graduated. "Her performance of Joan," The Globe and Mail critic wrote the following morning, according to Hart House records, "is a luminous portrayal, instinct with an inner fire of truth and spiritual beauty, and exquisite in its shadings of emotion and execution."
From Hart House and a year of graduate work in English literature, she did summer stock in New York, and then helped found the Straw Hat Players in 1948 with Murray and Donald DAVIS, two brothers who had been part of the Hart House theatre gang. The company, which included Eric HOUSE, Ted FOLLOWS and Barbara HAMILTON, toured Muskoka and Port Carling and the border region of the U.S. for several summers. "In a way it was the best time I ever had on the stage," Ms. KING told The Globe in 1961. "We were 10 ambitious, idealistic youngsters who thought we were building Canadian theatre and, perhaps, we were."
The DAVIS brothers and their sister Barbara CHILCOTT went on to open The Crest Theatre in a renovated cinema on Mount Pleasant Road in Toronto in 1954. At The Crest she played Masha (with Kate Reid) in Chekhov's The Three Sisters, Madame Ranevskaya in The Cherry Orchard and Lady Utterword in Heartbreak House, among other roles in that theatre's ambitious and groundbreaking history.
She worked in England in the very early 1950s but returned to Canada to work in television on the fledgling Canadian Broadcasting Corporation network and at the equally neophyte Stratford Festival, appearing as Hermione in The Winter's Tale and Lady Percy in Henry IV, Part 1 in 1958. (She returned to the Festival in 1982 as a senior member of the Shakespeare 3 company and acted in All's Well That Ends Well and A Midsummer Night's Dream.)
The following year she performed on Broadway in Robertson Davies's Love and Libel, directed by Tyrone Guthrie, and toured in a principal role in Love and Libel in Detroit, Boston and New York.
In 1962, she went back to The Crest to play opposite a Newfoundland actor named Gordon PINSENT in The Madwoman of Chaillot. They married on November 2 of that year, a creative and romantic partnership that lasted more than 44 years. After her wedding, Ms. KING told The Toronto Star that she "was doing Orpheus Descending at the Crest and when it ended I said I didn't want to work for a long, long time. I was tired." Their daughter, actress Leah PINSENT, was born on September 20, 1968. The family moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s where Mr. PINSENT (after the end of the television show Quentin Durgens, M.P., in which he had starred) was writing and finding backers for his film The Rowdyman.
"She was my best friend," Leah PINSENT said yesterday about her mother. "Other than when I had to go away, we talked every day. She was giving and kind and warm and funny and smart and a great cook."
After having retired for most of a decade to spend more time as a wife and mother, Ms. KING ended her self-imposed retreat by appearing in the Ethel Barrymore role in The Royal Family, a comedy by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber, at the Shaw Festival in 1972.
She performed steadily after that on television and radio (playing Aunt Josephine on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television's Anne of Green Gables and appearing on The Newsroom, Twitch City and Wind at My Back, and playing the voice of Mrs. Gruenwald in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio series Rumours and Boarders). She appeared in film (Who Has Seen the Wind? and Nobody Waved Goodbye) and on stage, notably as Jessica Logan, a temperamental actress trying to make a comeback, in the premiere production of David French's showbusiness comedy Jitters in Toronto and at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven in 1979, a role that she revived in Toronto in 1986.
In 1990, she again performed opposite Kate Reid in a Hart House revival of Arsenic and Old Lace. In 1998 she starred in the Tarragon Theatre production of Janet Munsil's Emphysema (A Love Story) in which she shared the stage with her daughter Leah, as they both played actress Louise Brooks at different ages. Although Ms. KING had been a heavy smoker, she had successfully stopped for a decade until the director asked them to smoke "real" cigarettes on stage, according to her daughter. Alas, she was hooked again.
Ms. PINSENT said it was "fabulous" working with her mother because she was "always a very generous woman. There was no ego; she always wanted to serve the writer and the theatre in the best way she possibly could."
In the last several years Ms. KING performed regularly at The Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto, appearing in Present Laughter in 2001, as Maria in Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and in Jean Genet's The Maids in 2002. "We called her at home and we got her," Mr. SCHULTZ said about casting her for the first time. "She always brought such humanity and elegance and wit to everything she did. She was a pleasure to have around."
Asked a few years ago by an interviewer whether she could imagine retiring, Ms. KING said absolutely not. "Being an actor is something like being at university. It opens your mind and your soul and makes you tap into yourself." Her last role was as Mrs. Soames in Thornton Wilder's Our Town at Soulpepper in 2006 and she was planning to reprise the role this spring.
"To the very end, Charm stood up for the creative arts in Canada," her family said in a statement this week. She was a steadfast believer in the creative spirit of this country, its culture&hellip her cry was always… get on with it and be proud."
Charmion KING was born in Toronto on July 25, 1925. She died in Toronto of complications from emphysema on Saturday. She was 81. She is survived by her husband Gordon PINSENT, her daughter Leah PINSENT and her son-in-law Peter KELEGHAN. There will be a private family cremation, followed by a memorial service at a later date.

Hospital physiotherapy pioneer was a 'tough but sympathetic' taskmaster
For more than 25 years, she was a force to be reckoned with at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, where she helped polio victims and treated Canada's first separated conjoined twins
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Isabel BRODIE was a pioneer physiotherapist who played a key role in rehabilitating children crippled by a polio epidemic that swept across North America, and treated the first set of Canadian conjoined twins to be successfully separated. For more than 25 years, she headed the physiotherapy division at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, where she was a force to be reckoned with.
She was variously described by Friends as outspoken, feisty, loud, compassionate and caring. Doctor Barry SHANDLING, the former pediatric surgeon at Sick Kids, called her "tough but sympathetic" - exactly the qualities needed for treating infants whose heads were bent to one side because of wry neck.
The condition, which is caused by a shortened muscle, can be corrected in small babies provided someone has the skill and tenacity to twist the head to its proper position. Most parents and physiotherapists do a "wishy-washy" job of this because they are too concerned about being gentle, he says. Not so Ms. BRODIE.
In 1972, she performed physiotherapy on Heather and Kristen, the first set of Canadian conjoined twins to be successfully separated. Doctor SHANDLING performed the surgery and she helped to keep them active and to mobilize their joints.
Early in her career, she had treated scores of children who had been crippled by polio. Successive epidemics had affected thousands of children across the continent until Doctor Jonas Salk of the University of Pittsburgh developed a vaccine in 1955.
"Ms. BRODIE was a very dedicated, compassionate physiotherapist who was very effective in treating of children with paralysis, particularly those who suffered from poliomyelitis in the years before the vaccine was developed," said Doctor Robert SALTER, a professor emeritus of surgery at Sick Kids.
But her contributions at the children's hospital went beyond simply treating young people. She also became involved in their lives. She invited numerous children and their families to live at her home while the youngsters were undergoing treatment.
As director of physiotherapy, however, she was a strict taskmaster who asked her staff to address her as Ms. BRODIE, recalled Anne-Marie HAMILTON, a former co-worker. Later, after stepping down for health reasons and rejoining the front-line therapy team, she asked them to call her by her nickname, Skip. "Then we got to see her soft side," Ms. HAMILTON said. "We saw she had a sense of humour."
Isabel BRODIE grew up in Oakville, Ontario Her Scottish-born father, Robert BRODIE, had travelled around the world as a ship's carpenter before building the family home. Her mother, also from Scotland, was a homemaker who often returned to the old country to visit relatives.
Ruth MacDONALD, who also grew up in Oakville, remembers bicycling along the shore of Lake Ontario with Ms. BRODIE to visit Friends in the nearby village of Clarkson when both were girls. After the outbreak of the Second World War, Ms. BRODIE joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and convinced Ms. MacDONALD to do the same.
They were among 17,000 Canadians who enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force to serve in the Women's Division, which trained those who joined in more than 40 trades. Ms. BRODIE, who enlisted in 1942, worked as an equipment assistant and achieved the rank of leading air woman. She was posted to a number of places in Canada, as well as Torbay, Newfoundland., which at the time was considered to be "overseas."
She used to talk about the snow in Newfoundland being so high that she had to go in and out through an upstairs window to get to the mess hall, said Marion LEAVITT, a close friend and frequent travel companion over the years years. She also told about talking an air force chef into cooking up some steaks so she could organize a party. After the war, but while still in uniform, she was sent to England and posted to an Royal Canadian Air Force airbase in Topcliffe, Yorkhire.
After returning to civilian life, Ms. BRODIE used her military allowance to take a three-year physical therapy course at the University of Toronto. She graduated in 1950 and practised for about four years at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital before moving to Sick Kids, where she worked for more than a quarter of a century.
Mary SAURIOL, who worked with her at Saint Michael's, said: "She was wonderful with children. If they wanted to run around, she ran around with them." She often took outpatients on excursions to the Canadian National Exhibition or on day camping trips.
Next to her work, Ms. BRODIE's greatest love was travelling, both within North America by camper van, and abroad, including Russia, China and several times to India. She sponsored a number of children through the Christian Children's Fund and visited some of them overseas.
Her most constant companion for travel, sports and pastimes was Mable STUBBS, a Revenue Canada employee who had also served in the air force. After the war, the two women shared an apartment and later bought a house in Clarkson. In 1988, when Ms. STUBBS was quite ill with cancer, they took their final trip together, a Mediterranean cruise. Ms. STUBBS died shortly after their return. Friends said Ms. BRODIE took a long time to recover her bounce after the loss.
Their relationship was one of Friendship and convenience, but nothing more, said her niece, Heather HEAPS. Ms. BRODIE was engaged to a man who was killed during the Second World War, and later to a second man, but she broke that relationship off when she realized she still loved the first.
A woman of eclectic interests and athletic prowess, she filled her leisure time with camping, canoeing, cross-country skiing, bird-watching, photography, wood-carving, dressmaking, gardening, playing the organ, folk dancing, and playing bridge. She took up golf in her early 70s, and went on to win three hole-in-one trophies.
Isabel BRODIE loved entertaining, said Marilyn BRODIE, a niece by marriage. "The first time I met her was at a corn roast in her backyard. She had a giant pot like a witch's cauldron."
In her early 80s, she began to develop Alzheimer's disease and could no longer drive. But that didn't ground her. She would jump on her bicycle and ride to a favourite restaurant for ribs and a rum and Coke, Ms. HEAPS said.
As her health deteriorated, she began using a cane. "Unfortunately, the cane became a lethal weapon," Ms. HEAPS added. "When dining in a restaurant, she thought nothing of smacking the waitress with the cane to get her attention."
Isabel BRODIE was born in Oakville, Ontario, on May 31, 1920. She died of complications of Alzheimer's disease at the King Nursing Home in Bolton, Ontario, on June 1, 2007, one day after her 87th birthday. She is survived by a nephew and five nieces. She was predeceased by her older brothers John, a former Mountie, and Robert, who died in Walkerton, Ontario, in 2000 when the municipal water supply there became contaminated with E. coli bacteria.

HALL, Oswald, PhD, LLD, F.R.S.C. (18 January 1908-31 August Born in Lily Plains, northern rural Saskatchewan, and one of nine children, Oswald came to be one of the early members of the sociological profession in Canada. He studied at Queens, McGill and Chicago, and taught at Brown and McGill where he served 16 years, many as chairman. Following a visiting professorship at Tulane University he joined the faculty at the University of Toronto in 1956. His primary practical research interests centred on the sociology of work and the professions, especially medicine, focusing on doctors, chiropractors and paramedical specialties. His career found him moving between the worlds of academe and government policy, and he served on both the Royal Commission on Health Services and the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism. After retiring from the University of Toronto, he held sessional appointments with the University of British Columbia, the University of Calgary, the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, Trent University and Memorial University.
He enjoyed a rich and rewarding career of teaching and research in the early years of what was then an exciting and new area of academic endeavour. His colleagues and students throughout Canada honoured him with a series of published papers. His contribution to the development of sociology and Canada were also recognized through the awarding of an honorary doctorate by the University of Carleton, and membership in the Royal Society of Canada.
Predeceased by his wife Florence HALL (née TANNER.) He is survived by his sister Kathleen HAMILTON, his son Frank, daughter Mona (BROWNE,) granddaughter Christina HALL, and many nephews and nieces and their children. His intellect, presence and humour are now gone, and it has created a void.
