City loses 'remarkable force'
By Patrick MALONEY and Claire NEARY, Sun Media, Wed., December 26, Beryl IVEY, the London icon whose philanthropy touched education, health care and the arts in London and beyond, has died. She was 82.
Though she and her husband of nearly 60 years, Dick, moved to Toronto about 18 months ago, her love of the place she called home since arriving for university never waned, her family says.
"She missed London enormously," her son Richard IVEY said from his Toronto home last night.
"She loved London and she loved many of the institutions, big and small, in London."
IVEY was felled by a heart attack Sunday and hospitalized in Toronto. She died there yesterday morning, three days shy of her 83rd birthday.
But on Monday -- Christmas Eve -- she was in "vintage form," her son said. "So, we all got to say hi and bye."
As news of the death spread yesterday, praise poured in for IVEY, who, along with her husband, donated an estimated $150 million and left a lasting mark on the Forest City.
"This city and province and country has lost a great Canadian," said Tony DAGNONE, former chief executive of the London Health Sciences Centre.
At the University of Western Ontario, whose prestigious business school bears the Ivey name, there's no overstating the effects of her generosity, said University of Western Ontario president Paul DAVENPORT.
"I feel an enormous admiration for all she's done for London and for Londoners," he said. "The Ivey family is the foremost benefactor of (Western). There's no doubt about that."
Far from just a financial donor, the modest, five-foot-two IVEY believed passionately in the institutions she supported, said London member of provincial parliament Deb MATTHEWS. IVEY's legacy in London, said Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO- BEST, will live on indefinitely.
A private funeral will be held in London Friday, her birthday, and a memorial at a later date. She will be buried in London.
Born Beryl NURSE in 1924 in Chatham to a Canadian army lieutenant-colonel who taught elementary school, and a former military nurse, IVEY was a celebrated track star who arrived at University of Western Ontario in 1943. It was the academic scholarship she received that would inspire her generosity years later, she said in a 2005 interview.
She graduated valedictorian from University of Western Ontario-affiliated Brescia College -- to which she would years later give $750,000 for a library expansion -- and became a teacher at Beal secondary school in London.
She married Dick IVEY, who she met in her first year at University of Western Ontario, and joined his wealthy family, co-founders of the Empire Brass Manufacturing Co., now known as Emco.
In the 1950s, the pair had four children, to whom Friends say they passed along their sense of generosity. It was Dick's father, Richard G. IVEY, who in 1947 incorporated the Ivey Foundation.
Beryl is credited with the business-like approach to philanthropy the family adopted in the 1970s.
She and Dick passed along control of the foundation to their four children in 1997.
The list of organizations the Ivey generosity helped is long and distinguished: University of Western Ontario and the London Health Sciences Centre, the Grand Theatre, Museum London, the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame and Parkwood Hospital.
For Beryl and Dick, travel also was a passion. Business often took them to Europe, but they also made several trips to Africa and to the remote Arctic.
They were art enthusiasts, and Beryl's love of the outdoors was referenced by Friends last night, with one calling her an "amazing gardener."
To celebrate the 55th anniversary of their mother's graduation from Western, IVEY's children created the Beryl Ivey Garden at the university, which includes plants from her own garden.
About two years ago the couple moved to Toronto to be closer to their children, effectively severing the historic family's last physical presence in London.
In June, Beryl was named to the Order of Canada. It was an honour she eagerly anticipated receiving this February, friend Bill BRADY of London said last night. While she will be remembered for her generosity, BRADY -- who called IVEY "a remarkable force" said she was anything but a cheque-writer. "She was no pushover.
"You had to make a strong case for (support); you had to prove it was worthwhile."
