PRODANOS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-09-01 published
FUCHS, Doctor Helmuth (1929-2007)
It is with great sadness that the family of Helmuth FUCHS announces his passing on August 27, 2007 after a long illness. Helmuth died peacefully in Wiarton, Ontario with his wife Mercedes Chacin de FUCHS at his side. He will be sorely missed by his sons Christian and Mathias, his adopted sons and daughters Mariano CONSENS, Chris PRODANOS, Veronica TRUJILLO and Flavia CONSENS, his grandchildren Marie-Andrea, Sebastien, Alex, Clemmy, Nicole, Micaela, Marina and Nicolas, his sister Gerda (Bauer) and brother Hans Peter and also by his innumerable Friends and colleagues in every corner of the world. Helmuth is predeceased by his parents Margerette (POSS) and Johann and his siter Rose-Marie. Helmuth was born in Vienna, Austria on February 6, 1929. A man of many talents, he became a renowned and distinguished ethnologist, museum professional and educator. In 1956 he received his PhD in Ethnology and Archaeology from the University of Vienna, with a focus on indigenous cultures of Latin America. One year later, in 1957, the President of Austria presented him with that country's most prestigious scholarly award, the Theodor Korner Prize. Soon after, he became Curator of Ethnology in the Museum of Natural Science in Caracus, Venezuela and served as that institution's Chief of the Ethnology and Archaeology Departments from 1962 to 1967. During his last three years in Caracus, he dedicated half of his time to serving as visiting professor at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. In 1967 Helmuth was asked to join the staff of the Royal Ontario Museum as Curator in the Ethnology Department. Here he continued his valuable field research on Indian tribes of northern South America, contributing greatly to the collection of artifacts and publications of the Royal Ontario Museum. From 1975 to 1980 he served as Curator-in-Charge of the Ethnology Department with tremendous energy and dedication. In the period that followed, up to his retirement from the museum in 1994, Helmuth FUCHS acted as a guest professor in some ten universities in Mexico, Peru, Germany, Austria, Canada and U.S.A. He served on important committees, including two terms on the Executive Board of the United Nations (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) International Committee on Ethnology Museums. After his retirement he continued his museum work with Canadian Executive Service Overseas donating his considerable skills, experience and knowledge to various institutions and agencies throughout the world. Helmuth passed his last years at his beloved retreat at Colpoy's Bay. He took great pleasure tending his garden and feeding the birds that found their way to his sanctuary; he found peace in listening to their songs and to the sounds of the water nearby. He loved to behold the fabulous view from his special lookout spot at the kitchen table. And, perhaps most of all, he treasured the time he was able to spend with all of his grandchildren - just as they delighted in their time with him. In addition to his prodigious professional achievements, Helmuth was also a man of rare musical sensitivity and talent; had he not chosen the career that he did, he might well have become an accomplished concert pianist. He always shared his love of music with those around him and entertained and delighted us all with his magnificent performances and shared with us his collection of musical instruments and music from all over the world. The family wishes to express special thanks to Doctor Jean MARMOREO and Doctor Maia NOSENKIS and to the staff of the Wiarton Hospital, as well as the staff at CarePartners and Community Care Access Centre. The family also expresses their special gratitude to Doctor Eric BARKER who attended Helmuth with utmost compassion and dedication not only during the last eight months but during the last moments of his life. We owe you all a debt of gratitude for the care and comfort you gave to him. In accordance with Helmuth's wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be no funeral home visitation or service. There will be a memorial gathering at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the George Funeral Home, Wiarton, Ontario. Donations made to the Wiarton Hospital or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family as expressions of sympathy. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.georgefuneralhome.com or Friends_Of_Helmuth_Fuchs@comcast.net

AMBROSE, Joyce
Mother, department store garment alterations specialist, life enthusiast. Born May 13, 1913, in Durban, South Africa. Died September 11 in Toronto of multiple causes, aged 94.
By Dan PROUDFOOT, Page L10
There was no telling from her pace behind her walker that Joyce AMBROSE was approaching 90 when she moved into the neighbourhood.
Like many of us, she walked her dog twice a day in all kinds of weather. This is how I came to know Joyce.
Her little terrier, Jock, had been her son's, she explained one of the first times we talked. When her son's partner died, followed by the death of her son, Joyce moved back to Toronto from Vancouver.
She had taken a room at Abbeyfield House, a residence catering to isolated yet independent individuals. I liked her immediately because she radiated spunk. Always prettily turned out, as my wife noted, whether starting a garden on the Abbeyfield grounds or inching her way up the hill to catch a bus, Joyce seemed both old and ageless.
One summer, word went around that she had turned 90. Yes, she said, she'd be happy to come to lunch. Over cold chicken sandwiches, we learned more about her.
She was South African and was deemed "coloured" under the apartheid system, she said. To escape the limitations of being labelled as such, she and her husband immigrated to England. She and her son subsequently moved to Canada. Joyce smiled sweetly as she told this story, as though what had happened 50 years earlier didn't matter much now.
What mattered, increasingly, was that she was losing her hearing. As years passed and setbacks came - Jock was put down, repeated falls left her less mobile - her growing difficulty in conversing distressed her most. Missing what was said left her unable to respond. Conversation had been Joyce's great pleasure.
She took to carrying a plastic slate and a felt-tip pen on her daily walks. As she absorbed whatever question you had written, the embers that burned within her eyes would brighten and her voice would sound as merry as ever.
Moved from Abbeyfield two years ago to a series of nursing homes, Joyce spent more and more time in hospital. She would squeeze a visitor's hand, even when unable to sit up, and her eyes would sparkle with every exchange initiated on the plastic slate.
I never knew her well. Yet those who did - Friends from her earlier life in Toronto who turned up at her various bedsides - seemed to react as I did, feeling better for the experience of being with her, as though warmed by her model.
Joyce's gaze finally lost its fire in her last days, one friend said, yet the memory of her enduring grasp of life remains as a gift for any of us who made her acquaintance.
Dan PROUDFOOT is Joyce's friend.
