Mom and her family received compassionate nursing care on Unit 8 South. As the recipient of the Wellesley School of Nursing Bedside Nursing Award 1946, she found this trait in her health care providers. We know that Mom would wish any donations to be made to either the Hospital for Sick Children, The Heart and Stroke Foundation, or the Wellesley School of Nursing Alumni Association Bursary to promote this type of quality health care everywhere.

PORTER, Helen Carmichael
Peacefully, in Toronto on September 10, 2007, surrounded by loving family, after a brave battle with leukemia. Beloved wife of Gary HOPHAN. Adored mother of Phillip and grandmother of Isaac. Cherished sister of Sheila SMITH, Anne PARIS, and Ian PORTER. Daughter of the late Rev. Gordon and Caroline (McLAREN) PORTER. Inspirational aunt to: Ross, Sharon, Wendy, Rosemary and Stephen (SMITH;) Jona, James, Jessica, and Emily (PARIS;) Andrew, Caroline, and Mary (PORTER.) A lifelong teacher and artist, Helen earned her Master of Arts in English at Victoria College, University of Toronto. In her storytelling career, she brought to children and teenagers a unique vision of Canadian and world myth, fairytale, legend, and short fiction. Her storytelling performances for adults explored family relationships, contemporary literature, and the theme of "the grotesque." In the later stages of her career, Helen's performances increasingly featured her own writing. Her one-woman shows at The Senator, The Luna Lounge, and many other venues, presented vividly drawn characters from the streets of Toronto and the hills of the Ottawa Valley. Her book, a fictionalised set of memoirs entitled The Bully and Me, has empowered students, parents, and teachers to confront a frightening aspect of young people's lives. In her dual careers, storytelling and teaching, Helen passionately developed her own creative gifts. Simultaneously, she encouraged others to do the same. Helen's students remember her as a mentor who nurtured their imaginations and supported their dreams. Her fellow storytellers will always be grateful for her motivational workshops and the opportunities she provided through the National Storytelling Theatre, which she founded and directed. Her countless Friends will cherish forever her love and generosity of spirit. A private service was held on Friday, September 14, at the chapel of the Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home. A memorial celebration of Helen's life will be held on Saturday, September 29. Details to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Helen's memory to Princess Margaret Hospital or to PEN Canada.

PORTER, Helen Carmichael
Teacher, writer, raconteur, wife, stepmother, sister, auntie. Born August 19, 1946, in Milton, Ontario Died September 10 in Toronto of leukemia, aged 61.
By Ross SMITH and Anne Porter PARIS, Page L8
Helen Carmichael PORTER was gifted from her earliest years. She had a swift imagination and intense energy, leaving no doubt that she was marked for stardom. She was attuned to the foibles of others and crafted these idiosyncrasies into weird and wonderful characters.
Her father, a Toronto United Church minister, used his estimable oratorical skills to enrapture his family with stories at the family cottage near Huntsville, Ontario Each summer evening, he gathered everyone around the hissing gas lamp and read aloud from such classics as Uncle Tom's Cabin, The Vicar of Wakefield and Grimms' Fairy Tales. Helen never forgot the delicious thrill a gothic tale brings to an imaginative child.
At summer camp, Helen wove ghost stories out of her vivid imagination and memory. As a young adult, she terrorized her nieces and nephews with tales of horror and suspense - and they loved every second of it.
Following university, Helen taught high-school drama and English, spending many years at Toronto's Vaughan Road Collegiate. She empowered her students through her imagination and generous spirit, and their appreciation empowered her. Yet, she needed room to create beyond the classroom. Making the leap to the then-unknown field of professional storytelling, she refined her talents in theatres, churches and schools across Canada.
In 1986, Helen married Gary HOPHAN, and together with his son, Philip, they established a creative home that became the birthplace of the National Storytelling Theatre, providing a vehicle for her to write, produce and perform shows. After the theatre's demise she continued to write, collect and tell stories while also leading workshops and teaching part-time.
Helen told her stories to audiences across Canada in performing arts venues and on radio, television and film. In 1996, she was invited to lead an assembly of high-school students on the topic of bullying. This inspired her to draw on her formative experiences. After eight years of touring this show, Helen wrote and published The Bully and Me: Stories that Break the Cycle of Torment.
In May, when Helen was diagnosed with leukemia, she saw cancer as just another bully to be reckoned with - and she was determined to come out victorious. Each morning, she laced up her sneakers to power-walk through the city streets she loved. She bravely fought the bully to the end with the loving support of her family.
Ross SMITH is Helen's nephew and Anne Porter PARIS is her sister.

PASHLEY, John
Television man, rum enthusiast, raconteur. Born June 15, 1940, in Hove, Sussex, England. Died May 22 in Toronto of multiple causes, aged 66.
By Nicholas PASHLEY, Page L8
John PASHLEY arrived in Canada in 1953, clutching his cricket bat. He had a posh English accent and impeccable manners, as you'd expect from a Brighton College boy.
That September, John enrolled in Grade 9 at Weston Collegiate in Toronto's west end, a school that placed no premium on manners or a good accent. Mocked by his peers for saying "Thank you" to a bus driver, John saw he had to change. Virtually overnight, he transformed into a North American teenager.
This horrified John's parents, but it was no bad thing to be the younger brother of a teenager connected to popular culture. John had a letter printed in the Toronto Telegram blasting the older generation for its criticism of Elvis. Let them listen to their Frank Sinatra, he wrote, but I'm going to buy every record Elvis ever makes.
A more mature John PASHLEY found room in his life for both Presley and Sinatra. He always found some new singer, some new band, and recently discovered downloading, which freed him from having to add to his prodigious record collection.
John left school early and went to work at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in television, an industry in its infancy. Still in his teens, he was chosen to work the 1959 royal tour. John worked as a cameraman (and was cast as such in the 1976 film Network; that's him on the camera crane in Peter Finch's big scene) and later moved into directing and producing. John worked with actors, athletes, musicians and celebrities of every sort, in the process winning two Can Pro awards.
John was a big guy, a hellraiser who drank too much, smoked too much, stayed up late and never met a vitamin he liked. But he was doing fine until, working in Vancouver in 1979, he was set upon by a gang of thugs in a club. They beat him and left him for dead. John was made of tough stuff, but the beating took a toll.
Shortly before John died, a female employee at Toronto General commented on his beautiful blue eyes. Those eyes had been noticed by women before. Twice married, John found the last passion of his life in 1992, Lorraine PARISI, and loved her in sickness and in health for his last 15 years.
Increasingly it was in sickness - three heart attacks, a quadruple bypass, an aneurysm, even flesh-eating disease. In John's hellish last two months, everything that could go wrong did. But he never lost his good manners or his sense of humour. The day after being diagnosed with lung cancer, John had a word of fraternal advice for me: Don't take up smoking. Message received, big brother.
Nicholas PASHLEY is John's brother.

PARK, Kevin Robert
Died January 3, 2007 at the age of 61. He will be greatly missed by his wife Yvonne and children Gareth, Megan, Tammy, Jason and Ashley and his sister Patty. He leaves grandchildren Ashleigh, Madison, Mackenzie and Liam. Like his father Eamon before him, Kevin worked for the Canadian labour movement his whole life. He was particularly proud of his work on the Gainers strike in Alberta, organizing fish plant workers in Newfoundland, negotiating for British Columbia Place stadium workers and fighting the privatization of government liquor stores in British Columbia. He inspired workers to use their collective power to fight for better working conditions and ultimately a more just world. The breadth of his intellect and energy was reflected in his varied interests: birdwatching, labour and military history, left political theory, landscape painting and in his later years, his grandchildren. Their daily visits were a source of joy and fascination to him. A memorial service will be held February 3, 1 p.m., Operating Engineers Hall, 4333 Ledger Avenue, Burnaby, British Columbia. A memorial service in Toronto is planned for a later date. Donations may be made to the Centre for Integrated Healing, Suite 200, 1330 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, B.C., V6H 4A6 or to organizations dedicated to social justice.

BUTTEDAHL, Doctor Paz
Dr. Paz BUTTEDAHL, 65, passed away peacefully on October 8, 2007. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 25 years, Doctor Knute BUTTEDAHL. She is survived by her husband, John K. PARK, daughter Maria Beck BUTTEDAHL (Bob BECK), son John BUTTEDAHL (Lisa FERRARI), brother Valerio GOYCOOLEA (Rebecca PALMA,) and sisters Sofia GOYCOOLEA (Richard E. LANE) and Loreto GOYCOOLEA. Paz was a proud aunt of Claudia GOYCOOLEA (Mauricio MEYER,) Alexandre COULON (Maureen COULON- MENASHE,) Oliver GOYCOOLEA and great-aunt to Nicholas MEYER. She was a loving step-mother to Kim and Gary BUTTEDAHL and proud grandmother to Caleb and Alisha GRUNERT. Her family wishes to join in expressing all their love and appreciation for the extraordinary person Paz was, and for the outstanding contributions she made to the world. Paz was born in Santiago, Chile, and created a vast network of Friends, colleagues and students throughout the world, garnered through a long and distinguished career. The breadth of her experience spanned work with universities, international development organizations and agencies, and the Canadian military. Whatever the setting, common threads ran through all of her work: a passion for fostering international and intercultural understanding; a focus on sustainable development; and a belief in the possibility of creating an equitable and socially just world. The academic portion of Paz's career involved teaching at several universities in Canada, the United States, and Latin America, including a faculty position at the University of British Columbia and most recently, at Royal Roads University. Her work at the universities was always characterized by a passionate commitment to her students, the injection of an international perspective and comparative education approach to her courses, and a desire to create international partnerships linking students and educators from the developing world with those in Canada. Paz was sought after as a researcher and educator specializing in international development issues, and was a consultant with many international agencies and organizations. These included the Canadian International Development Agency, The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Organization of American States. Paz also worked for almost a decade with the International Development Research Centre in Ottawa. As Deputy Director of the Fellowships and Awards Division, her focus was on the development of human resources and the strengthening of institutions in the developing world through the education and training of their researchers and project staff. Paz strongly believed in learning as a crucial component in the achievement of sustainable development. In the early 1990s, as international development issues became more and more intertwined with issues of security, Paz was invited to attend the National Defense College in Kingston, Ontario, where she also contributed as the academic advisor to the Commandant. A subsequent posting to the Centre for National Security Studies provided a base for her research linking issues of sustainable development to those of human security. Paz's vast storehouse of knowledge and experience found a home and became invested in the creation of the Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. As founder and program head, Paz worked tirelessly to build the program and to ensure its sustainability and its relevance to the international development and security issues of today's world. The Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program was to be Paz's final contribution in a lifetime of notable achievements. In spite of failing health during the past months, she found strength in providing ongoing leadership to the program and in planning for its future. Paz, with her indomitable spirit and her vision of a world that might be, has enriched and influenced the lives of hundreds of Friends and colleagues around the world. Her loss will be deeply mourned. A celebration of her life will be held on at 1 p.m. on October 21 at Royal Roads University, 2nd Floor Grant Building, 2005 Sooke Rd. Victoria, British Columbia.

Dreams of Toronto city planner turned into a nightmare of red tape
Visionary and prophetic British-trained surveyor and urban developer battled bureaucracy to make an important contribution to the development of the city in the Sixties
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
As Toronto's first Commissioner of Development, Walter MANTHORPE had a hand in a stunning new city hall complex, envisioned a metropolitan skyline dominated by soaring towers, understood the value of downtown residential neighbourhoods and was among the first to have notions of a domed stadium.
Yet, as a guiding light, he was also an engineer whose vision was infused with controversy. He rode fluctuating waves of public opinion, fashioned creative solutions but still managed to gain the respect of his political opponents. "He and I tangled greatly in the late sixties and early 1970s," said former Toronto mayor, John Sewell. "He believed very strongly, as many people did, in the idea that modernist approaches to the city were a really good idea - high-rise apartments, towers in parks, getting rid of streets. Those kinds of things.
"We were on the cusp of the big change that was happening in Toronto, that gave Toronto the central area plan," Mr. Sewell added.
Walter MANTHORPE cut his teeth on controversy. He was one of two sons born into a family with strong Quaker connections in Norwich, England, during the First World War. His grocer father was a conscientious objector who was sentenced to several years' hard labour in Dartmoor Prison. Meanwhile, his mother ran the family business, which was an early health-food store, and raised her sons as vegetarians during a time when such a path was strongly criticized.
After articling with a firm in Norwich, Mr. MANTHORPE qualified as a surveyor in 1936. But instead of immediately picking up a pencil, he joined Maddermarket Theatre, a local venue that in 1921 had become the first permanent recreation of an Elizabethan Theatre. Under the founder and director, Nugent Monck, Mr. MANTHORPE also acted in early productions of plays by George Bernard Shaw.
Shortly afterward, he found a job in London at the Office of Works, which looked after government property and, in particular, public parks. He then took another surprising turn and moved into a place called the Youth House, a residence established by a group of theosophists who valued the principles of internationalism. While living here, Mr. MANTHORPE helped provide accommodation and find jobs for German and Austrian students who were fleeing the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler. He met his future wife, Anne PARKER, at Youth House.
When the Second World War started Mr. MANTHORPE, like his father, chose to be a conscientious objector, and the ramifications of this decision were significant. Questions were asked in the House of Commons as to the validity of his case, since he was one of the first people in Britain to argue conscientious objector status on philosophical rather than religious grounds. He had to appear before a tribunal as well as resign from his government job. Instead, he did first aid work and become an air raid warden. Meanwhile, his brother Jack enlisted in the Royal Air Force and was later killed.
In 1951, Mr. MANTHORPE joined the Central Office of Information in London and became involved in designing the Festival of Britain. This festival, popularly referred to as "a tonic for the nation," was an attempt to boost the morale of bombed-out Londoners. An elaborate exhibition was developed on the south bank of the River Thames. Controversy plagued the festival. Irate tenants who were being evicted from their homes to make way for the highly publicized development took their fight to the streets, and many believed the millions budgeted for the event would have been better spent on new housing. In the process, Mr. MANTHORPE had caught sight of his future; he attended London University at night and qualified as a town planner. One of his early jobs was to design the dry dock at Greenwich for the Cutty Sark, the last of the three-masted tea clippers. Perhaps it was on the deck of this ship that he first considered crossing oceans and taking his city-planning skills to Canada.
In 1955, he landed a job as Toronto's deputy planning commissioner. He and Anne, along with their daughter Vicky and son Jonathan, who later became a reporter at the Globe and Mail, emigrated to Toronto just as the city was staging an international competition for the design of the new city hall. His career took off and in 1962 he was appointed Toronto's first Commissioner of Development.
"He was at the centre of a community of planners and architects who paved the way for Toronto's progress toward becoming one of the most cosmopolitan and attractive cities in North America," said Vicky. "It was a period of ferment, creativity and excitement."
Mr. MANTHORPE developed a passion for functional architecture in the style of modernist architect Walter GROPIUS, with whom he worked on a Toronto waterfront development later in his career. He viewed the development of high-rise apartments as a necessary component. "His outlook was very cosmopolitan. He was keen on people being able to flow around the world," said Vicky. "In Toronto, he foresaw that there would be great immigration… and that lots of apartments would be required."
He also was one of the first to come up with the idea of a domed sports stadium in downtown Toronto, and believed that derelict railway yards that lay between Front Street and the lake shore was just the place to put it. The idea, however, was years ahead of its time and decades elapsed before the SkyDome took shape.
Fed up with bureaucratic limitations and what he considered to be backward thinking, Mr. MANTHORPE resigned his post as commissioner in 1967. Mr. MANTHORPE was fond of an editorial cartoon that appeared in The Globe and Mail. It shows him slipping out of a meeting of the board of control whose members are all asleep. "Great things are going to happen in this city and I want to be part of them," he whispers.
An editorial published in The Globe and Mail at that time said Mr. MANTHORPE had been hired to attract developers to Toronto and "clear the track ahead of them," but instead of being free to get on with his job, he found himself mired in red tape. So he tiptoed out of city hall and into the offices of Meridian Property Management Ltd. to become a consultant.
Controversy continued to dog him. For instance, a high-rise building development planned for Toronto's South Saint_James Town neighbourhood quickly developed into a highly publicized fracas. In 1970, more than 100 tenants living in low-rise buildings in this downtown neighbourhood were given eviction notices by their landlord, the Meridian Group, to make way for the construction project. They formed a tenants' union and John Sewell - who at that time was a Toronto city alderman - spearheaded their fight against the developer. Mr. Sewell and Mr. MANTHORPE devised an experimental program whereupon Mr. Sewell became the middleman between the company and the tenants. Rents were paid to Mr. Sewell and then passed on to the Meridian Group. While zoning decisions were being made at city hall concerning low-rise or high-rise developments, tenants were protected from immediate eviction. Meanwhile, planning went ahead.
Where Mr. Sewell and Mr. MANTHORPE differed was not that new zoning laws had to be established, but rather what kind of development would fill the space and whether residents would have a say in the planning. "[Meridian] want high density. We say fine. There's no problem with high density at all as long as that doesn't mean high rise," Mr. Sewell said at that time.
Mr. MANTHORPE's position at Meridian gave him a platform upon which to try and shame the city into looking to the future and accepting that higher was better. "It's understandable that people in downtown residential areas are frightened," he said. "Practically every other city has a downtown core that is rotting away, a battlefield that no one dares cross. But Toronto is on the right track and if you're winning, it's the wrong time to turn tail and run away."
His approach did not always win Friends but it did gain him respect. "He was actually a nice man; I liked him," said Mr. Sewell earlier this month. "I got along with him in a personal way, but we believed in fundamentally different directions."
While critics point to Saint_James Town as a failure, the low-cost housing development may also be seen as another example of Mr. MANTHORPE's prescience. Many years later, residential downtown towers are now flourishing in the form of expensive condominiums.
After the debate surrounding Saint_James Town died down, Mr. MANTHORPE continued working as a town planning consultant on various projects, both in Toronto and in Great Britain. He was an authority on planning law and was much in demand as an expert witness at hearings and tribunals. In the mid-1980s, he managed the redevelopment of the Hudson's Bay headquarters in London and in the early 1990s, he returned to Southern Ontario to work on development planning with the Anglican Church.
At 80, he finally retired and spent his final years back home in Norwich.
Walter MANTHORPE was born in Norwich, England, on November 15, 1916. He died in Norwich on June 13, 2007. He was 90. He is survived by his wife, Anne, his son, Jonathan, and daughter Vicky.

MINETT, E. Everet (February 23, 1918-september 5, 2007)
Letting go when he was at peace, feeling the love of four generations of family. As a boy and a young man, Everet exhibited extraordinary gifts. He was a brilliant student. He attended University of Toronto Schools where he excelled in classics, languages, science, and music. He later studied math, physics, and chemistry at University of Toronto (Trinity College) and subsequently did graduate work in physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At age 8, Everet assumed a large measure of family leadership when his father died. Everet discovered his perfect love at age 15 when he saw Alice Caroline PARKER as an angel in a Christmas pageant at St. George's Church in Guelph, Ontario. They were married in 1941 and raised a family of 5 children as they traveled with extended stays in Norwalk, Connecticut, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Rochester, New York, and Toronto, Ontario, where Alice currently lives. But Everet's and Alice's lifelong geographical passion was Cognashene, Georgian Bay. Along with his wife and young children, Everet fashioned a magical summer paradise. The 40's, 50', 60's, and 70's were exciting times for a gifted scientist in the business world. Everet played significant roles in the Manhattan Project (40's), in the development of RCA's ENIAC and Remington-Rand's UNIVAC computer systems (50's), in senior positions at Xerox (60's), and as director of University of Toronto's UTLAS (70's). In addition, during the 70's and 80's Everet and wife, Alice, worked side by side at their own import and distribution venture in Toronto, The Canadian Tumbler Company. Everet loved us all and was an inspirational mentor. He taught us about fulcrums and levers, and that anything was possible. His children will never forget that inspiration: Peggy WILLARD and her husband, Joe; Charles MINETT and his wife, Nina; Doug MINETT; Jane MINETT and her husband, David KEITH and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa. Everet's grandchildren and great-grandchildren will also miss their loving grandfather: Doug WILLARD and his wife, Lorri, and their son, Owen; Suzanne WILLARD; Charlie MINETT; Arthur MINETT; George MINETT; Elizabeth MINETT; Ben MINETT and his wife, Stephanie; Hannah MINETT, her husband, Mike VANSTONE, and their sons, Quinn and Oleh; Alice KEITH; Andy KEITH, Chris KEITH and his wife Sue FRASER, and their children, Ellie and Gillian; Karina KEITH and her husband Brian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, and their children Sydney, Kira, and Adam; and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa, and their children, Everet, Wesley, and Sean. The family wishes to thank the caring and wonderful staff of Saint Michael's Hospital, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations to Saint Michael's Hospital Foundation: www.smh.toronto.on.ca or 416-864-5000.
