REDDICK, Eleanor
In loving memory of a dear sister and aunt, Eleanor, who passed away one year ago, on August 2, 2006.
She left us quietly
Her thoughts unknown
God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be
He wrapped you in his arms
And whispered "Come with me."
You faced you pain with courage
Until the very end
- Lovingly remembered by Alice, Bob, Lyle, George, Ann and Merv and families.

REDMOND, Wendie Elizabeth
Daughter, wife, mother, human rights activist, mentor. Born April 7, 1941, in Hamilton. Died September 27 in Saint Thomas, Ontario, of cancer, aged 66.
By Holly KRAMER, Page L6
Wendie was born to Rilla STIPE and Norman PARTINGTON. But her parents separated before she was born, and she was adopted at birth by Doctor J.K. McGREGOR and his wife, Trudy.
After Doctor McGREGOR's sudden death, when Wendie was still too young to understand adoption, Trudy remarried and Wendie was adopted a second time, by Trudy's new husband, T.J. BELL.
Wendie BELL graduated from Havergal College in Toronto. Her manner, cadence and command of language bespoke her private-school upbringing, but Wendie also had the "common touch." She commanded respect in a not-so-common way - by showing it - particularly during the many committee hearings of the Ontario legislature in which she spoke eloquently in support of what she considered the inalienable human rights of the adopted.
Wendie didn't suffer fools gladly ("Let's be kind, he's stupid," she'd say of opponents in private). She could curse in the nicest possible way, sparingly and only when appropriate, and was intolerant only of intolerance. And dirt.
It may have been the stigma attached to so-called "illegitimacy" and adoption for her generation that made her the housekeeper she was - no speck of dust was safe from her - but it was surely this experience that made her a pioneer in Canada's adoption-disclosure reform movement.
Wendie helped thousands of adult adoptees discover their roots following her own successful search and reunion. Her book, Once Removed: Voices from Inside the Adoption Triangle, is still on recommended-reading lists 25 years after its publication.
As founder and co-founder of several chapters of the national non-profit organization Parent Finders, and later, Adoption Roots and Rights, Wendie left an indelible influence on many lives.
Many of us hold dear our memories of sitting at her kitchen table enjoying her offerings of homemade "sun tea" and delicious food.
Wendie had a quick, biting wit, and found humour in the most unlikely places. Her stories usually ended with her trademark phrase: "… right, Buddy?" Wendie and her sweetheart, Henry (Bud) REDMOND had a rich, loving relationship. Sadly, their only child, Stephen, died accidentally in 1983.
Just days before her death, Ontario's new disclosure law, for which she fought so long, came into force, and a mere 48 hours later was overruled by the Ontario Superior Court.
But as Wendie so often reminded us, "adoptees are no strangers to loss."
Holly KRAMER is Wendie's friend.

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.
