Margaret ATWOOD, Dietitian (1909-2006)
Headstrong woman loved the outdoors and helped inspire her daughter and namesake, Canada's celebrated author and poet
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S7
A dietitian by training, strong-willed and independent by upbringing, the original Margaret ATWOOD raised her children on a diet of thrift, reading aloud and the freedom to explore their natural and intellectual surroundings. By the time she was a grandmother, economy was ingrained as a habit rather than a necessity, but the years had not blunted her sense of adventure.
"Quite some time after the event, I told both my parents that I had tried LSD," her younger daughter, Ruth SIFERD, said recently. "Daddy pursed up his mouth and looked disapproving. Mum leaned forward and said, 'What was it like?' "
Staying with her grandmother when her parents (writers Margaret ATWOOD and Graeme GIBSON) were away was "fantastic," recalled Jess Atwood GIBSON, 30, now a graduate student in art history at Yale University. "My grandmother would allow me to feed her Venus flytrap endless small pieces of ground meat on toothpicks, and she would show me how to tickle its fronds, pretending to be a fly, and give me an account of its digestion."
Every morning before school, Mrs. ATWOOD would sit young Jess on a stool and wind her hair into long, fat curls around her finger with a white comb dipped in a glass of water. "For a seven-year-old, the best grandmother possible was one who could both explain plant digestion and curl hair into ringlets."
Although Margaret ATWOOD has always resisted interpreting her own fiction for readers, she told literary biographer Rosemary Sullivan (The Red Shoes) that her muse was the mother figure. Mothers run the gamut in Ms. ATWOOD's work from holy terrors to benevolent nurturers, but the story that is probably most autobiographical is "Significant Moments in the Life of My Mother" from Bluebeard's Egg.
"I used to think that my mother, in her earlier days, led a life of sustained hilarity and hair-raising adventure," Ms. ATWOOD wrote. "Horses ran away with her, men offered to, she was continually falling out of trees…" It is only later that Ms. ATWOOD realizes that "the stories were just the punctuation" in a life that had "long stretches of uneventful time."
Margaret Dorothy Killam ATWOOD was born in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. The eldest of five children of Harold KILLAM, a country doctor, and his wife Ora Louise WEBSTER, she was socially shy but physically daring. A tomboy, she delighted in walking the barn ridgepole and riding her two cherished horses, Dick and Nell.
She was 17 and sliding down a banister at Normal School in Truro when Carl ATWOOD, a hard-working self-made man who had grown up in the backwoods of South Shore, Nova Scotia, spotted her and immediately fell in love -- or so he said.
As wily as she was headstrong, she got the better of her father after he refused to let her bob her hair in the 1920s. She waited until he had a dentist appointment and made her plea while the drill was whirling. He retorted that she could do anything she wanted as long as she left him alone, and so she went straight to the barber and had her waist-length tresses chopped.
Perhaps that's why her father declined to send her to university on the grounds that she was "frivolous." Instead she taught school, saved money and won a scholarship to Mount Allison University. She graduated in domestic science and became a dietitian and nutritionist.
After a long courtship with Carl ATWOOD -- money was scarce and she was having "too much fun," as she later told her children she finally married her beau in 1935. Besides having a PhD, he was an expert woodsman and the only one of her suitors that her father didn't dismiss as a "jackass." They spent their honeymoon canoeing down the Saint_John River in New Brunswick.
Then they headed for northern Quebec, where Prof. ATWOOD, an entomologist, had a small forest insect research station. Living first in a tent then a cabin, Mrs. ATWOOD raised her first two children, Harold and Margaret (Peggy), without the benefit of running water or electricity -- during prime insect season -- from spring until fall. Prof. ATWOOD pawned his fountain pen to pay the hospital bill when Peggy was born in November, 1939.
The family spent winters in Ottawa, but Mrs. ATWOOD much preferred the bush, where she could swim in the cold northern lakes -- "refreshing, refreshing," she invariably trilled as she strode purposefully into the frigid water. She also loved to grow vegetables, pick blueberries, fish, shoot grouse, sweep the dirt out the door in the morning and be done with housekeeping for the day. "My mother baked her way through the war years," Ms. ATWOOD remembered, "with no-butter, low-sugar recipes, and when we ran out of protein she'd open a can of Spam, mix up some Klim milk powder, or go down to the end of the dock and throw in a line for pickerel."
In 1945 the ATWOODs moved to Sault Ste. Marie, where Prof. ATWOOD set up another insect lab. With this change of venue, the family spent the warmer months of the year at a cabin on the shore of Lake Superior.
Mrs. ATWOOD put her children to work picking berries at a cent a cup, which she preserved for eating in the colder months. Her daughter Peggy still remembers seeing her mother waving a broom and yelling "Scat" to chase away a bear that had trashed the food cache.
The family moved to Toronto in 1946, so that Prof. ATWOOD could begin teaching zoology at the University of Toronto. Their second daughter and third child, Ruth, was born five years later, in 1951. Mrs. ATWOOD was 42, but age wasn't the only factor that differentiated her from most of the other neighbourhood moms. She hated housework and was oblivious to the consumer boom of the 1950s and 1960s.
"She had absolutely zero interest in colours of furniture, curtains, or other 'girl' stuff -- Dad did all that," remembered her younger daughter, Ruth. "As long as things were cleanish and had no holes she was happy." She was attached to "things" for their sentimental value, but otherwise material goods were of little interest. "The Depression mentality of reduce-reuse-recycle came naturally to her and was very useful in the bush and on canoe trips."
Besides raising three children, to whom she read aloud voraciously, Mrs. ATWOOD was committed to Scottish country dancing and ice dancing, an activity she enjoyed until she was 75.
Her last years were mired in ill health, but even when she was blind and bedridden in a nursing home, she never complained. She didn't believe in whining.
Margaret Dorothy Killam ATWOOD was born June 8, 1909, in Kinsman's Corners, Nova Scotia She died at home in Toronto this past Saturday. She was 97. Predeceased by her husband, the zoologist Carl ATWOOD, she leaves her three children, their families and her younger sister, Joyce BARKHOUSE. There will be a memorial service later in the month.

GALPIN, Doctor Richard Robertson
Was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 29, 1915, first child of his parents Alfred and Louise GALPIN. His father worked as an official with Canadian Customs and Immigration, his mother maintained their home. Richard was the third generation of the family born in Vancouver. He was joined in a few years by his beloved sister Esther Louise (who later married C.G. (Bud) KILLAM. They are survived by their children, son Richard (Veronica), daughter Nancy SINCLAIR (Richard,) and son Michael (Lynette) all of Vancouver). He grew up in Vancouver, attending public schools. He graduated from Kitsalino High School, and attended the University of British Columbia, where he received his Bachelor's degree. When he spoke about this time in his life, he remembered the Friendships he had, and the love of his family. During this time he held many part time jobs that shaped his outlook on life, including working as a lumberjack, streetcar motorman, and on the railroad. As a young man, he enjoyed sailing, music and the outdoors, and played rugby for the Merelomas. His love of music has always been central to his life, and started with piano lessons as a boy. While attending University of British Columbia, he was introduced to a friend of his sister's, Helen STEVENSON, who he courted and married. After graduating from University of British Columbia, he attended Medical School at McGill University, and received his doctorate in 1943. After graduation, he was immediately assigned to service aboard the HMCS Waterford. He served through the remainder of World War 2 in the Canadian Navy and saw combat throughout the Atlantic Theater as a ship's surgeon. His decorations include: The Battle of Atlantic Medal, Normandy Star, Defense of Britain Medal, and the Victory Medal. He continued to have an affiliation with the Canadian Navy until his death, rising to the rank of Rear-Admiral (Reserves). He relished this connection to the navy throughout his life. He was particularly proud of his Honorary United states Naval Insignia, including Surface command, and Naval Aviator (U.S.S. Nimitz). He was also an honorary member of the Detroit Navy League. In 1949 Richard emigrated to the United States to begin his Pediatric training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He completed this and became Board Certified and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He joined Doctor Lloyd Kemp in his office at the corner of Brown and Southfield, and joined the staff at Beaumont Hospital when it was a single building lying on the outskirts of the city. He went on to practice pediatrics in the same location for over thirty years, caring for multiple generations from the same families. During his clinical practice he became especially interested in early childhood development. With his belief in the importance of nurturing this special period of a child's development and through the strength of his efforts, he founded the Neuro-Education Center at Beaumont Hospital. From early shoe-string budgets, he shepherded the center through it's early years, and maintained an interest in 'the Center' for the rest of his life. It has now become the Center for Human Development at Beaumont Hospital. He and Helen had four children Kenneth, Peter, Lindley and Sheila. The children were raised in Birmingham. During this time Richard and Helen were involved in many community affairs from the Birmingham Jazz Festival, the Birmingham Kite Festival to the origins of the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, and were members of Christchurch Cranbrook. During this time he was an avid competitive sailor, a Member of Crescent Sail Yacht club. He passed on his love of music and sailing to his children. Helen and Richard divorced in 1970. In 1973 he was introduced to Maxine RICH by mutual Friends. They courted for two years and went on to be married in 1975. The marriage lasted until their deaths. As a couple they were inseparable. As well as traveling, they loved to entertain at Maxine's house in Orchard lake, were avid ballroom dancers and enjoyed boating on Cass Lake. Richard is survived by his first wife Helen GALPIN of Comox, British Columbia and son Peter (Nina) and their twin children Akira and Mikiko, daughter Lindley (Carey) and her children Karen and Amy, Father-in-law to Mary BODO (Kenneth,) daughter Sheila MEREDITH and her children Thyra and Nedra, and their children Walter, Ella and Daniel. Stepchildren, Tina BROWNE (Charles) and their children, Paul, Theodore, and Isabel, Todd RICH (Denise) and their children P.J. and Zachary. In lieu of flowers the family and Doctor GALPIN request donations to either Mariner's Church Music Fund, 170 East Jefferson, Detroit, Michigan 48226 or the Center For Human Development, Beaumont Hospital, 1695 West 12 Mile Road, Suite 120, Royal Oak, Michigan. While the world may seem a darker place without the light of his smile, his skill as a raconteur and his joy at the piano, his contribution to the world has been great, and we carry him with us always.

Backbone of Saint Michael's Choir School groomed 'young gentlemen'
For more than 60 years, 'the guardian of the school's character' served in many capacities but mostly she taught the students liturgical music and religion, as well as their ABCs
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Kathleen (Kay) MANN could have easily become a Roman Catholic nun, but chose instead to teach. The decision proved almost moot; she viewed her job as a religious calling. Besides, teaching was no mere whim - she did it for an astonishing 65 years at the same school.
"My work is equivalent to that of an apostolate," she reflected in 1987. "It gives me great joy. I love my work and my faith."
Ms. MANN combined those as can few who do not take religious vows. She was a fixture at Toronto's famed Saint Michael's Choir School as a firm but much-loved teacher, administrator and conductor, and maintained a spotless attendance record since the school's founding in 1937 - missing only one day, when she fractured her elbow playing softball, her other passion.
Over six decades, thousands of boys learned liturgical music and religion, as well as their ABCs, from Ms. MANN, who served the school in virtually every capacity and taught every one of its administrative and choir directors.
"I was her boss for 24 years, but she was always my teacher," remembered Harry HODSON, a pupil of Ms. MANN's in the early 1950s who went on to become the school's principal and director. "She was a guardian of the school's character."
Proper and punctilious, with a straight back and earnest smile, Ms. MANN (Miss MANN to her students) was a gentle and inspiring instructor, and kept her boys on the straight and narrow. "She was not a softie by any means," Mr. HODSON said. "She wanted the very best from her boys but was probably one of the fairest people you'll ever come across. She wanted to raise young gentlemen and, along the way, turn them into singers."
Several of her choirboys went on to find fame in singing, among them Michael Burgess, operatic tenor Michael Schade, jazz crooner Matt Dusk, members of the Crew-Cuts and Four Lads, and Kevin Hearn of Barenaked Ladies.
"She didn't joke around a lot. She was pretty serious and dedicated and made us work hard," recalled Mr. Hearn, a student from Grades 3 to 11. "When I look at my self-discipline skills, she's certainly the person who had a major influence on helping them develop. She was a beautiful person."
Mr. Hearn, who still does the vocal exercises he learned from Ms. MANN, went to visit his old teacher a few years ago. "She asked how I was doing and what I was doing. I said I was in a band. She asked what it was called. When I told her, she just sort of shook her head, looked at me and said," - and here he lowers his voice for effect - " 'Oh, Kevin …' "
Mr. Dusk, with three jazz CDs under his belt, remembers Ms. MANN as "a kind of second mother to us. She taught us that singing is praying twice, that music can be fun but spiritual."
For years, she was equally dedicated to softball, and even turned down a professional contract. "I thought my teaching was more important," she told the Toronto Star in 1987. "Playing ball would have only lasted a few years."
Born into a working-class family in Toronto, Ms. MANN displayed her mettle and sense of fair play early, once challenging a neighbourhood tough to "Take off your glasses and fight."
She learned to play baseball in the schoolyard at age 12, recalled her sister, Doris McGRATH. "In those days, there wasn't much to do but go to the school playground."
She entered a local girls' league, developed a wicked pitching arm and hot bat, and never looked back. Newspaper reports of the day described her as "a sterling pitcher… speed-ball hurler&hellip one of the best."
She played for 23 years, starting at age 13 with the Nationals, going on to the Toronto Ladies, followed by corporate teams such as Peoples Credit Jewellers, Simpsons and Clayton's. She guest pitched for several world tournaments in Detroit and was offered a contract to play in the women's big leagues in Chicago. She declined.
The softball-and-music combination led to decades of "perfect-pitch" puns.
Meantime, Toronto's Cathedral Schola Cantorum, founded in 1926 to train boys for Saint Michael's Cathedral's choir, added elementary grades in 1937 and was rechristened Saint Michael's Choir School. A 19-year-old Ms. MANN began as an assistant to founder Monsignor John Edward RONAN. She is remembered as the last of the school's co-founders.
Armed with a teaching certificate from the Toronto Normal School, she started instructing traditional academic subjects, as well as Gregorian chant, sight singing, choral music and voice. The life of a chorister was hard, Mr. HODSON recalled. It started in Grade 3, went to Grade 13, "and for nine of those, from Grade 5 on, you were singing every Sunday of the school year at the cathedral."
Although stern, Ms. MANN had a way of easing tension. She would hold up small cards facing the choir that said, "No smoking," or "chicken lips." Darren Dais, a former student and now a Dominican priest, recalled that she installed two rear-view mirrors on her piano, which faced away from the class, to keep an eye on trouble-makers. The jingle of the huge ring of keys she carried alerted the more rambunctious singers to settle down before her arrival.
Her interest in Gregorian chant led to additional studies in New York, the Catholic University of America in Washington, and Boys Town in Nebraska. She also held a Bachelor of Sacred Music degree from the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome, through an affiliation with the choir school.
She was awarded two papal medals, the Bene Merenti in 1964, and the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice ("For Church and Pope") in 1987, on the school's 50th anniversary. She was inducted into the Order of Ontario in 1997.
Ms. MANN was at the school seven days a week, usually arriving straight from 7: 30 a.m. mass at the cathedral next door. Weekends were spent on paperwork. For a time, she pinch-hit as the secretary at night. She taught at the summer school until the mid-1960s. And she taught singing to nurses at Saint Michael's Hospital and the Catholic Youth Organization's glee club.
Despite plenty of opportunities, she never married. Her students were "her boys" and she unabashedly mothered them. "Children nowadays need somebody to be firm, consistent and loving," she told the Star.
From 1967 until her first "retirement" in 1984, Ms. MANN was the school's vice-principal. In 1984, the school persuaded the archdiocese of Toronto to retain her as an "adviser in sacred music," a position she held for almost 15 years. And from 1985 on, she conducted the elementary and junior boys' choirs. She was 85 when she finally stopped working.
After slipping into a deep sleep on her final day of life, she waved her hands in the air for a few minutes. At first puzzled, her family realized that she was conducting. Then she crossed herself, folded her hands on her chest, and died.
At her packed funeral service, several men approached the family to say, "Kay is the reason I'm a gentleman."
Kathleen Mary MANN was born in Toronto on August 31, 1919. She died of cancer in Toronto on December 8, 2007. She was 88. She was predeceased by her brothers Leo and Raymond KILLORAN. She leaves her sister, Doris McGRATH.
