OLMSTED, Marjorie Kingsland (née SALTER)
(February 25, 1917-June 23, 2007)
Marjorie OLMSTED lived 90 years of what she would have termed an 'ordinary life', but to those of us who knew and loved her, she was extraordinary. She brought joy to others in the simplest way possible - yet few achieve it - she made us laugh. Constantly! Her keen eye combined with quick wit left any situation open to her humorous quips. Marj will always be remembered as kind, gentle, artistic and creative, and most of all, funny. She loved the sound of laughter and even as Alzheimers slowly diminished her memory in later years, with a twinkle in her eye she managed to bring delight to others daily. This beautiful Scottish/Irish lassie with the gorgeous auburn hair and freckles was born in Quebec City on February 25th, 1917 to parents Lillian and Norman SALTER who later moved to Ottawa. At 14, Marj met her childhood sweetheart, Earl OLMSTED, whom she married at 23 and they remained together for 76 years. Not an easy feat when you consider they endured the 2nd World War being apart. (Lt. Col. OLMSTED [Ret.] was overseas for 5 years and is one of the few living survivors of the Normandy Beach landing.) For 2 of the war years Marj attended Kemptville Agricultural College, one of the highlights of her life. This was followed by a life being an 'army wife' with moves from Ottawa to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Fort Churchill, Manitoba, and Madison, Wisconsin accompanied by their four children - Eric, Valerie, Eleanor, and Bruce. She was able to put her home economic studies to good use in her chosen career as a devoted and outstanding Mom. Marjorie lived for many years on Broadview Avenue, Ottawa and in Amberwood Village, Stittsville surrounded by wonderful neighbors. On one of their postings 45 years ago, Marjorie discovered she had breast cancer. Her humour helped her through those dark times and upon waking from major surgery asked her doctor 'Does this mean I can no longer wear double breasted suits?' He encouraged her to find a new hobby so she signed up for art lessons as a form of therapy and found a hidden artistic gift that blossomed into years of painting (often with her beloved dog Lara at her feet). Using mixed media, she would amaze relatives and Friends with her original artwork and poems to suit special occasions. Always a journalist and poet, at the age of 80 Marj wrote an article entitled 'Diary of Breast Cancer.' Not only was it published in the Ottawa Citizen, but it has been widely distributed to thousands of women across Canada to offer them hope and inspiration. Her illness never returned and she lived cancer-free 45 more years! Marjorie's #1 passion was her family and grandchildren - Jana and Pat CLENDON of Calgary, Lani EL- GUEBALY of Vancouver, and Tally, Lindsay, and Geoffrey OSBORNE of Toronto - and many happy reunions took place at Marj and Earl's beloved Red Pine Camp on Golden Lake, Ontario where lifelong Friendships were formed and strengthened each summer for over 65 years. Beauty was an ongoing theme in her poems; Sugarbush Pointe and Red Pine Camp captured for Marjorie the best that camaraderie and nature had to offer. Perfect and personal pieces of Canada. Already sadly missed by her husband, children, and grandchildren, some very special people who will mourn her loss are relatives Noreen LANGDON, Rita SALTER, Ted and Muriel LANGDON, Alan and Waveney SALTER, Doctor Nady EL- GUEBALY, Doctor Ray OSBORNE, Judy KETCHESON, Marilyn EL- GUEBALY, Bill SALTER Jr., Mary and King CHAPMAN, Andrea and Albert PETERS, Doug and Jean SALTER, Red Piners and lifelong Friends in the Ottawa Valley. She was recently predeceased in August 2006 by her first-born son Eric, also by her parents, her brothers Bill and Jack, her niece's son Scotty, many aunts and uncles, fellow grandparents Ahmed and Andree EL- GUEBALY, and nephew Geoffrey LANGDON. In the summer of 2002 Marjorie said, 'soon I will be flying with wings.' We are forever grateful that we had a few more years to enjoy her company before she flew away. Marjorie loved words and here are a few of her own which foreshadowed this occasion.
End of Summer
Touch the rustic railings one more time And gaze at the quiet lake. The leaves are brittle now And rattle in the breeze. Feel the sun, half warm, half chill, And say goodbye to summer. A quiver is in the poplars; A shiver is in the pines, On the lake the waves wear A lacey fringe of winter white And one bird flies Into a fading sky.
Special thanks to Evelyn ALBAN, who is like a member of the family, and to the loving staff at the Claremont Retirement Residence in Toronto, especially Barbara. You are truly an amazingly loyal and caring group of people. A Graveside Internment Service will be held at Capital Memorial Gardens Cemetery, 3700 Price of Wales Drive, Nepean on Thursday, June 28, 2007 at 3: 15 p.m. For further information please call Tubman Funeral Homes at 613-722-6559. In lieu of flowers, donations in Marjorie's name to the Ottawa Mission, 35 Waller Street, Ottawa, K1N 7G4, would be sincerely appreciated. Anyone wishing to read 'Diary of Breast Cancer' can find it on Val Warner's website www.walkandtalkforwomen.com.

Czech wartime refugee became one of Canada's greatest composers
Originally a pianist, he forced himself to write a fugue a week until he had mastered composition. He rejected avant-garde electronic and 12-tone techniques in favour of laments and tributes that probably drew inspiration from his memories of Europe, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A Czech refugee from Nazism, Oskar MORAWETZ was 23 when he arrived in Toronto, but he remained a European in his sensibilities and his musicianship throughout his long and prolific career as one of Canada's best known and most frequently performed composers. Known for his deep emotion, lyricism and melodic line, Prof. MORAWETZ wrote more than 100 orchestral and chamber works, including Carnival Overture, Piano Concerto No. 1, Memorial to Martin Luther King and From the Diary of Anne Frank. His music, both vocal and instrumental, was performed by such musicians as Glenn GOULD, Maureen Forrester, Ben Heppner, Anton Kuerti, Yo-Yo Ma, Lois Marshall and Zubin Mehta.
His knowledge of the great European composers was encyclopedic, which made him a valuable teacher and mentor. In his own work, he eschewed his colleagues' embrace of avant-garde electronic and 12-tone techniques in favour of deeply felt emotional laments and tributes that probably drew their inspiration from his memories of Czechoslovakia, as it was before Hitler occupied the country, and the trauma both of his own escape and the horrific fate of many of his Friends and extended family members.
Pianist Mr. Kuerti remembered Prof. MORAWETZ as a composer "whose eclectic style was reminiscent of music written 50 to 75 years earlier, as were, among others, Bach and Brahms in their time.
"He was in no way experimental or avant-garde, during a time when radical innovation and destruction of tradition were highly prized by the critics and other would-be oracles, if not by the general public. For this he earned considerable disdain. But his music is absolutely sincere, just as his personality was, and it was extremely well crafted and has a distinct aroma of its own.
"He had an uncanny memory for a great deal of music from the past, and from his acquaintance with it he knew thoroughly all about balance, form, orchestration and sound colours. Had he been a visual artist, one would admire how wonderfully he could draw, rather than just splash paint on a canvas. I think some of his best works should continue to keep a foothold in the repertoire."
As well as two Juno awards, three senior fellowships from the Canada Council and a Golden Jubilee Medal, Prof. MORAWETZ was awarded the Orders of Ontario and Canada. Although he could speak several languages, he never lost his heavy Czech accent.
Oskar MORAWETZ was born January 17, 1917, in Svetla nad Sazavou, Czechoslovakia, the second son of four children of a secular Jewish couple, Richard and Frida (GLASER) MORAWETZ. His father made his living running jute factories that had been founded by his grandfather. When Oskar was 3, the family moved to Upice, a mill town in the foothills of the Sudeten mountains in western Czechoslovakia, where Mr. MORAWETZ and his older brother owned a jute factory, although they continued to spend their summers at the ancestral family estate in Svetla. As a child, Oskar loved building blocks, playing the piano and listening to music. When he was 10, his father moved the family to Prague so that the children could attend high school. They lived in a large apartment in the centre of Prague close to theatres and coffee houses and enjoyed an affluent, cultured lifestyle, complete with skiing vacations at Christmas and Easter.
By 1932, Mr. MORAWETZ was president of the International Cotton Congress, and Oskar was studying piano and theory at the Prague conservatoire under Karel Hoffmeister and Jaroslav Kricka, in addition to his academic classes. Fascinated by music, Oskar was barely interested in other subjects and did poorly in school despite extra tutoring. He graduated in 1935 and then suffered such a severe nervous breakdown (exacerbated by a fear that his fingers would lose the ability to play the piano) that his parents took him to Vienna to see a psychiatrist, who treated him for several weeks before the overwhelming sadness lifted.
Oskar had such an acutely developed ability to sight-read orchestral scores that George Szell recommended him for a position as assistant conductor of the Prague Opera. Despite his longing to become a musician, he never questioned his father's wish that he take forestry at university. In 1937, two years after he began studying forestry, he finally won his father's permission to move to Vienna to study piano. A year later, after he watched Adolf Hitler parade through the streets of Vienna, the anti-Semitism he had already endured increased dramatically and, following a run-in with the Gestapo, he headed home to Prague.
That September, England and France signed the Munich Agreement, giving Germany the Sudetenland, the sections of Czechoslovakia that were heavily populated with Germans and contained most of the country's fortifications. Mr. MORAWETZ sent Oskar to Paris, ostensibly to study music, but really to get him out of the country, and sent his son John and daughter Sonja to England. On March 15, 1939, Hitler marched his troops into Prague, slept in the Royal Castle and boasted that Czechoslovakia had ceased to exist. Mr. MORAWETZ was doubly marked because of his Friendship with political leaders Jan Masaryk and Edward Benes. Nevertheless, he managed to acquire exit permits for himself and his wife and fled to England, then sailed for Canada, arriving in September of 1939.
Oskar, thinking he was safe in Paris, where he was enjoying his musical life immensely, had declined to accompany his parents. But he was treated like an enemy alien and his bank account was frozen. After a series of harrowing near-arrests, he acquired an exit visit that took him from France to Italy by way of Switzerland, where he was helped by a former business associate of his father. In March of 1940, three months before the fall of France, he flew from Rome to the Canary Islands and boarded a ship sailing to the Dominican Republic. From there, he set off for Canada, landing on June 17, 1940. His brother Herbert and sister Sonja had come here in December of 1939; his brother John and his bride Maureen arrived after the war in November of 1946. The family was finally safely reunited in Toronto, although many of their relatives had been murdered in concentration camps. By then, Oskar, who had been rejected for military service because a chest X-ray had revealed dormant tuberculosis cells, had become a naturalized Canadian citizen.
From afar, Oskar had seen Canada as a cultural backwater, but it actually provided him with a nurturing artistic environment. He lived with his parents and dedicated himself to studying music. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in music (1944) and a doctorate in composition (1953) from the University of Toronto, studying under Leo SMITH and Albert GUERRERO -- two of his fellow piano students were Mr. GOULD and John Beckwith. Initially, he wanted to be a pianist, but because he had to write an original composition to complete the prerequisites for his bachelor's degree, he forced himself to write a fugue a week.
"He was very frustrated at first," said his daughter Claudia, "but after writing 40 or 50 of them, he found them easier to do." His graduate composition was his first string quartet, Opus 1, and it won a Composers, Authors, and Publishers Association of Canada award. In 1946, he began teaching at the Royal Conservatory of Music, was appointed to the faculty of the University of Toronto as an assistant professor six years later, where he continued to teach composition and harmony for the next three decades.
On June 7, 1958, at the age of 40, he married Ruth SHIPMAN, a pianist and piano teacher from London, Ontario, in a ceremony at Bloor Street United Church in Toronto. (Mr. GOULD played the organ.) The MORAWETZes settled in a house in Forest Hill, with him occupying an upstairs room furnished with a Heintzman piano and a large oak desk, where he composed music. There was a second piano in the living room, a Steinway grand, that Prof. MORAWETZ played occasionally, but it was used much more frequently by his wife, who gave music lessons there. Her office, aside from the kitchen, was in the basement.
Two years after his wedding, Prof. MORAWETZ won the first of three Senior Arts Fellowships from the Canada Council, which gave the young couple the opportunity to travel in Europe, attending concerts and making connections with musicians and, coincidentally, conceiving Claudia, their first child (now a computer scientist) who was born in 1962. Their son Richard (an economist) followed in 1966.
About this time, Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich asked Prof. MORAWETZ to compose a work for cello and orchestra. He said later that he was having trouble finding the inspiration to write a note until he watched the "slow, sad and very moving" funeral procession for Martin Luther King in Atlanta, three days after the civil-rights leader's assassination on April 4, 1968. When he saw the inscription on Rev. King's gravestone, taken from his favourite spiritual - "Free at last, thank God Almighty I am free at last!" - he resolved to write a work dedicated to Rev. King's memory: "I saw clearly in front of me the form, content and orchestration of my composition." Memorial to Martin Luther King was first performed by the Montreal Symphony Orchestra in Another death, long after the fact, inspired another of his memorable musical eulogies. In a radio interview in 1990, Prof. MORAWETZ spoke about the inspiration for From the Diary of Anne Frank (1970), explaining that he hadn't read the diary when it was published in the early 1950s because it reminded him too painfully of the fate of so many of his Friends and family members. When he read it in 1968, he was haunted by the entry in which Anne writes about her friend Hanneli Goslar ("Lies Goosens" in the published diary), who was arrested and sent to a concentration camp while the Frank family was in hiding in Amsterdam. The two girls met up again briefly in Bergen-Belsen in the last months of the war. "I still think it's the most moving passage of the whole book… [it] is nothing else but a prayer for the survival of her friend Lies," Prof. MORAWETZ once said. Soprano Lois Marshall premiered the work with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra in May of 1970.
Prof. MORAWETZ's marriage was not a harmonious one. The couple separated in 1982 and divorced two years later. At 67, Prof. MORAWETZ found himself not only divorced, but retired from his teaching job at the U of T. After some initial dilemmas about housekeeping, he settled happily into a busy lifestyle of composing, giving guest lectures and travelling for most of the next decade. He gave his last performance as a pianist in March, 1992. Two years later, the Elmer Iseler Singers sang one of his last major commissions, Prayer for Freedom, at the inaugural concert in the North York Performing Arts Centre. The work, which was commissioned by the Canada Council, draws on two anti-slavery poems written by 19th-century African-American writer Frances E.W. Harper, reflects Prof. MORAWETZ's thematic commitment to human rights and social justice.
The following year, in May of 1995, he went back to Prague, the city he had fled nearly 60 years earlier. He fell into a depression that was compounded by his failing eyesight and the arthritis that stiffened his fingers and made it difficult for him to play the piano. The breakdown may have been a reverberation of the severe depression he suffered as a teenager, with both episodes linked by a fear of being cut off from his music. He was never able to compose music again.
Six years later, he fell and hit his head, suffering brain damage that severely affected his memory and his ability to express himself. In 2002, after being diagnosed with Parkinson's syndrome, he moved into a retirement home in Toronto. Several symphony orchestras in Canadian cities, including Toronto, Edmonton and Ottawa played concerts of his works in January to celebrate his 90th birthday, and the University of Toronto music faculty organized a tribute to the man and the musician.
Oskar MORAWETZ was born on January 17, 1917, in Svetla nad Sazavou, Czechoslovakia. He died in his sleep at Leaside Retirement Residence in Toronto on June 13, 2007, of complications from Parkinson's syndrome. He was 90. He is survived by two children, two grandchildren and extended family. There will be a memorial service on June 28 at 7 p.m. in Walter Hall at the U of T's Edward Johnson building.
