"TIP" 2007 Obituary


TIPPET o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-01-02 published
ALLEY, Peter Herbert Ruttan (1930-2006)
Peter died on December 29, 2006 in Brampton after complications from surgery for a broken hip. Peter had slipped on his driveway as he headed out to ski for the day. He was deeply loved by Daphne (YOUNG,) his wife of 51 years. He is missed and remembered with love by his children: Hugh (Diana), John (Helen), Ted (Ann), Kate (Steve), by his seven grandchildren: Rebecca and Ted; Jessie and Will; Evelyn and Larissa; and Zo, by his sisters: Aileen M.D. HOWES and Frances M. TIPPET and by his many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Joan, and in 2004 by his son, Tom. Peter exemplified life-long learning and encouraged this in his family and in his teaching. His life demonstrated the values that he prized: respect, responsibility, and kindness. He influenced many who came into his life, providing thoughtful counsel with a caring approach. Peter began his career as a "boy-auditor", received his C.A., moved into industry and then taught for twenty years at York University in the MBA program. In the past six years he has inspired an initiative to document and protect an important and previously unrecognized landscape in Ontario at the boundary between the Canadian Shield and the Great Lakes Basin - now called The Land Between. Daphne and the children are grateful for the care provided by the staff at Peel Memorial Hospital and the support and assistance of Friends at Caledon who have helped so much in the last few days. There will be a celebration of Peter's life at Trinity College Chapel, 6 Hoskin Avenue, Toronto on Thursday, January 4, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to the charities that support his interest in the preservation of wild lands: The Land Between c/o Couchiching Conservancy, P.O. Box 704, Orillia, Ontario L3V 6K7; The Nature Conservancy of Canada; and the Bruce Trail Association.

TIPTON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-10-19 published
TIPTON, Catharine
Guerrilla driver, Torontophile, generous spirit, mother. Born March 8, 1961, in Toronto. Died September 13 in Toronto of breast cancer, aged 46.
By Margaret SLAGHT, Page L8
Catharine TIPTON grew up fearless and street savvy, the third of four children of a close family in Toronto's Cabbagetown neighbourhood.
From an early age she resisted her brothers' attempts to shake her and hung out with the local boys, easily holding her own in their street games until after dark. She was talkative, opinionated and game for adventure and mischief. She persuaded her younger brother to leap from the garage roof by fastening Kleenex feathers to his body and telling him he could fly.
In school she shone at sports, often scoring half her team's points in a basketball game. Once she soared so high in the high jump that she cleared the landing pit and knocked herself out.
When she began to drive at 16, her competitiveness found a new outlet. She knew the quickest route to anywhere and, impatient with the rules of the road, combined outrageous nerve with breathtaking skill to stay ahead of the pack. A bus would be allowed in front, reluctantly, but seldom another car, and only if she liked what she saw when she eyeballed the driver. Kids who were driving their parents' expensive cars were definitely out of luck.
Along with the competitive spirit came an extraordinary generosity. Saying no to a request for help was not in her makeup. Her immediate and extended family, and a network of loyal Friends, were all the beneficiaries of her natural need to make their lives happier. She could be ferocious in this quest, especially when it came to her children.
Next to her family and Friends, Catharine loved a deal. Her annual garage sales on the lawn of the Cabbagetown house where her family had lived for a century were legendary. She sold objects from her mother's apparently inexhaustible cache in the basement, products of her own inspired bargain hunting and, unless they were quick to intercept her, her sister's and brothers' clothes, which might next be spotted on the back of a lucky neighbour. Antique dealers arriving early were admonished and sent away these bargains were for the neighbourhood.
Catharine brought the same determination to her fight with cancer. All sympathy was deflected. It was always business as usual, and this meant doing favours and running errands for other people as she always had. Through the endless assaults on her body from her treatments she was uncomplaining. Her goal was to spend as many days on Earth with her three kids as she could.
In the end, this was one of the few battles she lost. She was buried on a perfect fall day in the city she loved, surrounded by those who loved her.
Margaret SLAGHT is Catharine's friend.
