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.

FOULKES, Evelyn Mary (née CATHCART)
(July 6, 1911-October 6, 2007)
It is with heavy hearts that we (Frank and John) announce the passing of our dear mother Evelyn in her 97th year. Predeceased by our father, Reginald Alfred FOULKES, and her beloved sister Thelma LAMPING and brother-in-law Jack, Mom was a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church for 86 years. This association and her daily reading of her Bible helped give Mom the strength to carry on after Dad's death fourteen years ago. Mom had a feisty but at the same time gentle spirit and was never heard to say ill of others: she was always a Lady. She endlessly expressed her gratitude for her bountiful life and her long and happy marriage of 59 years with Dad. She was kind, generous, open-hearted and unconditionally loving to us and to our families. We are especially grateful to the East York Concert Band, for their never-ending kindness to Mom after Dad's passing, and to Ernie SHARMAN from the church, who continued to remember Mom after she no longer was able to attend services. She will be sadly missed by her daughters-in-law Irene and Lillian, and her grandchildren Bryan, Michael and his partner Mylène, Kristen (Rayner) and husband Matthew, and Craig. Evelyn was grateful to have had time with her great-grandchildren Noah and Abigail. Friends may call at the Trull 'East Toronto' Funeral Home And Cremation Centre 1111 Danforth Ave., (one block east of Donlands Subway) on Wednesday, October 10, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Service to be held in the chapel on Thursday at 10: 00 a.m. Interment at Pine Hills Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations to Westminster Presbyterian Church, 154 Floyd Ave., East York, would be much appreciated. We are no other than a moving row Of Magic Shadow-shapes that come and go Round with the Sun-illumined Lantern held In Midnight by the Master of the Show. Good-bye Mom; until we meet again.

SHAROUN, Hilda Emma (née WAKULAT)
Sadly on Tuesday, December 11, 2007 in her 89th year after a lengthy battle with cancer, Hilda died peacefully at the Baycrest Palliative Care Unit.
Loving mother of John and his wife Gail, proud grandmother of Adriana SHAROUN, and Cassandra, Alexandra and William KAVLUK, dear aunt to John WAKULAT and his wife Grace, and great aunt to Robert and Tania WAKULAT. Hilda is survived by her younger sister Else, nephews Rolf, Gerhard, Reiner and nieces Ingrid and Lily along with many younger generations of family in Germany. Hilda immigrated to Canada by herself in the early 50's to seek a new life and some years later sponsored her nephew John to join her in her new country. In the meantime she married Joseph SHAROUN, had a son John, and played a significant role in establishing a successful family business in Downtown Toronto. Predeceased by husband Joseph in the mid 60's, life was not always easy as she successfully ran the business and brought up a young not always cooperative teenager.
Then as she battled her cancer she taught us all tremendous courage, perseverance, a stubborn desire to succeed, and a will to fight and overcome adversity with great dignity that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
Special thanks to Doctor Sandy BUCHMAN who provided compassionate care and advice throughout and to the nursing staff at Baycrest 6 West, an exceptional group of wonderful people, who were of great comfort to Mother and the family.
A private family funeral service will be held with cremation to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 416-767-3153.
