ARMSTRONG, Steven
Husband, father, real estate broker. Born April 30, 1918, in Montreal. Died May 29 of natural causes, aged 89.
By Karen ARMSTRONG, Page L6
When Steve was a little boy, his doctor said he had a weak heart and suggested that his mother buy him a dog to walk in order to give him strength. This novel solution had far-reaching results as he lived into his 90th year. Throughout his life, Steve had a dynamic energy and an insatiable curiosity.
His father died when Steve was only a year old. When he was about 10, his mother became concerned that he might start hanging out with the wrong crowd, so she enrolled him at the local Young Men's Christian Association, which gave Steve a strong sense of both discipline and focus. He specialized in basketball and gymnastics, and became a prominent coach.
In order to support his mother and sister, Steve left school when he was only in Grade 9. Later, he successfully wrote the challenge exams at Sir George Williams (now Concordia University). His advice for academic success: study three times harder than any other student. He received his B.A. and later his M. Ed.
After the war, there was a shortage of teachers and Steve was asked to fill in as phys. ed. teacher. He met the beautiful art teacher, Margaret MAXWELL, and a lifelong love affair began.
In 1955, Steve found a house that had been on the market for too long. He vowed to himself that if he could sell it, he would give up teaching and go into real estate. That year, he sold the house and acquired his broker's licence.
By this time, the couple had three children: Karen, Joan and Shirley. Steve often captivated us all with interesting stories of what happened on the way to the closing of a sale. His company became the second-largest in Montreal. He also developed a passion for the British car known as the Rover; he soon owned a dozen, often taking them apart and then re-building them.
He gradually acquired a number of houses; he rented them, with a rather heart-warming clause in the lease providing a discount for "being a good citizen." Steve believed integrity, determination, resourcefulness and humility are traits to be nurtured.
In his 70s, Steve developed an interest in technology that stayed with him the rest of his life. He bought dozens of computers, dismantling and re-assembling them, just as he had done with his cars. He loved to help young business owners and often gave them a computer to "start them off."
Until the end, he would always say, "I think that this has been the best visit we've ever had" - the best dinner, the very best day - always the best. And when Steve said it, you knew he really believed it. And indeed, we, too, knew that it was really true.
Karen ARMSTRONG is Steve's daughter.

SMITH, Annie
Educator, author, illustrator, tennis player, sailor, folk singer, storyteller. Born November 21, 1940, in upstate New York Died October 31 in Toronto of ovarian cancer, aged 66.
By John ARMSTRONG, Page L8
I first met Annie SMITH in 1982; with her shock of white hair, she was dressed in knee-high Frye boots and a denim skirt and vest.
Annie proudly toured me through a series of weather-beaten portables located behind Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, home to several fine-art studio classes in the art and art history program, a joint venture between Sheridan and the University of Toronto that Annie helped establish in 1971. In 1998, the college opened a special studio facility for the program: the Annie Smith Arts Centre.
Annie grew up in Elmira, New York her mother was a nurse, and her father a radiologist. She did her undergraduate degree at Wellesley College and her master's at the University of California, Berkeley.
Annie came to Toronto in 1969 with her new husband. The marriage was short-lived but Annie stayed on, starting as a part-time instructor at Sheridan while beginning a PhD in art education at the University of Toronto.
Annie was an enthusiastic if unconventional teacher. In her drawing classes, she might theatrically deliver a lecture attired in her academic gowns and mortarboard, or bring along her guitar and sing Joan Baez songs. This could be challenging for faculty teaching classes in adjacent studios.
Her memos were handwritten and accompanied by her signature cartoon bear. And "Bear" would be pleased or frustrated, as warranted.
Annie adhered to a strict hierarchy of concerns - students always came first, and faculty a close second. Annie was also a very focused administrator. In the 1970s, there was no precedent for college-university B.A. programs, and in creating one, she encountered support as well as resistance - which she trenchantly fought.
The other great project of Annie's life was her struggle with cancer, which was first diagnosed in 1984. She chronicled these experiences in Bearing Up with Cancer, an illustrated book with Bear as the narrator. We learn of how lost test results delayed treatment and how, later, she taped chocolate bars to her abdomen to surprise and encourage her surgical team.
Annie travelled to international conferences to speak about her approach to cancer. In hospital in July, Annie came to the reluctant realization that she probably couldn't go to Kuala Lumpur. Still, she held out hope: There she would be, she laughed, in her first-class seat accepting only tea and two teaspoons of Jell-O, the "clear liquids" diet dictated by her doctors.
John ARMSTRONG is Annie's friend.
