OWEN, Lucille Yvonne Fortier
Volunteer, activist, fighter, role model, friend, wife, lover of the theatre, night owl, member of the Book Babes Book Club. Born April 23, 1944, in Favourable Lake, Ontario Died July 28 in Toronto of cancer, aged 63.
By Maggi REDMONDS, Audrey KING and Diane Murray BARKER, Page L8
For many years, Lucille and a friend celebrated August 10, 1952, as the marker of their shared destiny - their contact with polio.
A happy childhood with her loving family was punctuated with numerous medical interventions. Since life in a wheelchair made the local secondary school inaccessible, Lucille completed high school in the United States. Although unable to continue her formal education, she was extremely well-read, curious and astute.
In 1973, Lucille married activist and Ryerson English professor Bill OWEN. She greatly enjoyed the years they spent at the University of Kentucky, where Bill earned a PhD.
During that time she renewed her Friendship with Margaret STATON, whom she had met as a teenager at Toronto's Lyndhurst Lodge rehabilitation centre.
In 1994, Margaret named Lucille to the initial board of her Ethel Louise Armstrong Foundation (named after Margaret's grandmother), created to "promote… the inclusion of people with disabilities."
Overcoming a fear of flying, Lucille made numerous trips to California for board meetings. In 2004, the foundation honoured her with the Lucille Fortier Owen Scholarship.
In Chicago in 1981, Lucille and a friend attended a conference at which post-polio issues came to the fore. Together they nudged the Ontario March of Dimes to re-establish a post-polio program.
Lucille championed accessible health care for women with disabilities and always provided excellent analyses of the politics of disability and other social change campaigns.
When diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2001, Lucille became an informed decision maker in her own care. She astonished her palliative care team by long outlasting her initial prognosis. Lucille personally organized a note and a gift to be given to each member of her support circle after her death.
When Bill died in 2005, Lucille established the Bill and Lucille Owen scholarship at Ryerson University. Advisers had persuaded her to add her name, to provide a role model for female students and to underline her part in "their lifetime work to secure social justice through public policy."
Lucille's legacy is vastly greater than our loving memories and scholarships. By her persistence, through her actions and in her treatment of others, Lucille Owen lived her conviction that everyone must be treated equitably.
Maggi REDMONDS, Audrey KING and Diane Murray BARKER are Lucille's Friends.

WALKER, Olwen (née OWEN)
Of Avondale Road, Rosedale, Toronto; The Cabin at Claremont, Ontario; and Park House, Isle of Mull, Scotland, beloved wife of 63 years of the late James Woods WALKER, OBE, Q.C. Born Wychwood Park, Toronto, November 14th, 1912 to Professor Eric Trevor OWEN of Trinity College, Toronto and Elsie Una MacLEAN of the Isle of Mull. Died peacefully at Belmont House December 6th, 2007. Olwen was a shining example to her niece, Daphne (Miller) BEAUROY, nephews Iain (her Godson) and the late Keith MILLER Eric, Ronald, Trevor, the late Kenneth, and Gerald OWEN, niece Meredith STANFORD née OWEN, Daphne's children Fabienne, Stéphane, Muriel and David BEAUROY and grandnieces Rachel BEAUROY and Lucy BEAUROY. Olwens brothers Trevor and Ivon OWEN, and on the WALKER side, Hugh, Gordon, Hilary and Mary WALKER, Leonard and Douglas GILDAY, their children and families and the many Friends and admirers throughout the world will never forget her clear purpose, her sense of decorum, her generosity of hand and heart, her forthrightness, her joy in everything. She strove for perfection in all she was and did, and expected the same in return. Her warm benevolence and hospitality illuminated many lives. Devoted to her husband, she shared with him a love of nature translated into their life work: reforesting whole tracts of their land on the Oakridges Moraine.
Interment at the Walker plot, Mt. Pleasant Cemetery on December 15th at twelve noon, followed by Anglican service at the Belmont House chapel and a lunch reception in the Solarium at 1 p.m.
Olwen supported Belmont House with her husband as a donor. She worked there as a volunteer, and since 1996 it has been her home. Our thanks to the staff, to Doctor BIRMINGHAM, and to dear Angela SMART, Olwen's private nurse-companion, true friend and carer in her final years.
To remember Olwen and Jim WALKER, please plant a tree in their name, or give to a charity of your choosing.
