PORCHAK o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-08-27 published
BUDD, Arthur Edward Gilbert
Artist, blacksmith, father, husband, farmer, mechanic, welder. Born October 2, 1914, in Edmonton. Died April 10 in London, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 92.
By Marian PORCHAK, Page L6
Arthur was the first child of Mabel and Albert BUDD. He was born in Edmonton, shortly after his parents had moved west. But in 1922, Arthur's parents returned to Southern Ontario to farm.
Farming was undergoing a change from horse-drawn to tractor-pulled equipment. With Arthur's love of mechanics, he learned to repair "whatever needed fixing," creating new parts as needed. When tractors became scarce during the war years, Arthur and his dad built one using an old car.
In 1937, Arthur met Madge, a teacher at a local elementary school. Arthur serenaded his intended bride by flying over her boarding house in an airplane. They married in 1940.
In 1942, Arthur was called to serve his country, leaving his wife and two small children. He joined the Ordnance Corps, but later was assigned to the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. In December, 1944, Arthur and his corps headed overseas. While in England, he continued using his mechanical skills to repair jeeps and ambulances.
Arthur and Madge were blessed with six children. They instilled in them the values of honesty, fairness, education and teamwork.
Arthur believed in "living off the land." The family worked hard to manage the animals, care for the pets and to plant, hoe and harvest a very large garden and maple sugar bush.
Arthur was known locally as the one to have the spare parts for collector machines and cars. He could fix anything and, until he was too old to do it himself, he did all of the household and car repairs. He also maintained full-time employment in the manufacturing of industrial machinery for 40 years.
Arthur's retirement gave him time to rekindle his passion for blacksmithing, which he had apprenticed for while in the Forces. He had his own anvil and forge, but he also did demonstrations at local heritage days and worked the blacksmith shop at Fanshawe Pioneer Village in London, Ontario, for several summers. He was among the 15 founding members of the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association.
Arthur lived 48 years on his 10-acre hobby farm. After Madge passed away, he lived there alone before moving to the veterans' wing at Parkwood Hospital in London. There he worked in the arts workshop creating pieces such as silk scarves and ceramic items. While there, his favourite line for phone messages to his eldest daughter was, "All's quiet on the western front!"
The western front will be even quieter now. Arthur's memory lives on in the hearts of his loved ones who treasure his creations.
Arthur's daughter Marian PORCHAK submitted this on behalf of herself and her three sisters.

PORTER, Helen Carmichael
Peacefully, in Toronto on September 10, 2007, surrounded by loving family, after a brave battle with leukemia. Beloved wife of Gary HOPHAN. Adored mother of Phillip and grandmother of Isaac. Cherished sister of Sheila SMITH, Anne PARIS, and Ian PORTER. Daughter of the late Rev. Gordon and Caroline (McLAREN) PORTER. Inspirational aunt to: Ross, Sharon, Wendy, Rosemary and Stephen (SMITH;) Jona, James, Jessica, and Emily (PARIS;) Andrew, Caroline, and Mary (PORTER.) A lifelong teacher and artist, Helen earned her Master of Arts in English at Victoria College, University of Toronto. In her storytelling career, she brought to children and teenagers a unique vision of Canadian and world myth, fairytale, legend, and short fiction. Her storytelling performances for adults explored family relationships, contemporary literature, and the theme of "the grotesque." In the later stages of her career, Helen's performances increasingly featured her own writing. Her one-woman shows at The Senator, The Luna Lounge, and many other venues, presented vividly drawn characters from the streets of Toronto and the hills of the Ottawa Valley. Her book, a fictionalised set of memoirs entitled The Bully and Me, has empowered students, parents, and teachers to confront a frightening aspect of young people's lives. In her dual careers, storytelling and teaching, Helen passionately developed her own creative gifts. Simultaneously, she encouraged others to do the same. Helen's students remember her as a mentor who nurtured their imaginations and supported their dreams. Her fellow storytellers will always be grateful for her motivational workshops and the opportunities she provided through the National Storytelling Theatre, which she founded and directed. Her countless Friends will cherish forever her love and generosity of spirit. A private service was held on Friday, September 14, at the chapel of the Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home. A memorial celebration of Helen's life will be held on Saturday, September 29. Details to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Helen's memory to Princess Margaret Hospital or to PEN Canada.

PORTER, Helen Carmichael
Teacher, writer, raconteur, wife, stepmother, sister, auntie. Born August 19, 1946, in Milton, Ontario Died September 10 in Toronto of leukemia, aged 61.
By Ross SMITH and Anne Porter PARIS, Page L8
Helen Carmichael PORTER was gifted from her earliest years. She had a swift imagination and intense energy, leaving no doubt that she was marked for stardom. She was attuned to the foibles of others and crafted these idiosyncrasies into weird and wonderful characters.
Her father, a Toronto United Church minister, used his estimable oratorical skills to enrapture his family with stories at the family cottage near Huntsville, Ontario Each summer evening, he gathered everyone around the hissing gas lamp and read aloud from such classics as Uncle Tom's Cabin, The Vicar of Wakefield and Grimms' Fairy Tales. Helen never forgot the delicious thrill a gothic tale brings to an imaginative child.
At summer camp, Helen wove ghost stories out of her vivid imagination and memory. As a young adult, she terrorized her nieces and nephews with tales of horror and suspense - and they loved every second of it.
Following university, Helen taught high-school drama and English, spending many years at Toronto's Vaughan Road Collegiate. She empowered her students through her imagination and generous spirit, and their appreciation empowered her. Yet, she needed room to create beyond the classroom. Making the leap to the then-unknown field of professional storytelling, she refined her talents in theatres, churches and schools across Canada.
In 1986, Helen married Gary HOPHAN, and together with his son, Philip, they established a creative home that became the birthplace of the National Storytelling Theatre, providing a vehicle for her to write, produce and perform shows. After the theatre's demise she continued to write, collect and tell stories while also leading workshops and teaching part-time.
Helen told her stories to audiences across Canada in performing arts venues and on radio, television and film. In 1996, she was invited to lead an assembly of high-school students on the topic of bullying. This inspired her to draw on her formative experiences. After eight years of touring this show, Helen wrote and published The Bully and Me: Stories that Break the Cycle of Torment.
In May, when Helen was diagnosed with leukemia, she saw cancer as just another bully to be reckoned with - and she was determined to come out victorious. Each morning, she laced up her sneakers to power-walk through the city streets she loved. She bravely fought the bully to the end with the loving support of her family.
Ross SMITH is Helen's nephew and Anne Porter PARIS is her sister.
