SCOTT, Mary Cleeve
Daughter, sister, auntie, neighbour, friend. Born August 15, 1916, in Granton, Ontario Died September 26 in Palmerston, Ontario, of old age, aged 91.
By Mary WAIND, Page L6
The Second World War affected Mary's life more than any other factor.
Before the war she was a typical girl growing up in a village where everyone knew each other and life's normal challenges progressed in an ordinary manner.
Mary's father was a banker and the family moved around Southern Ontario for his work before settling in Elora, Ontario, when Mary was 6 or 7. She lived most of her life in a charming white-frame house with green gables on the edge of the town's school property.
During high school, a vivacious Mary played ball on the village girls' team, hiked, enjoyed picnics, skating and tobogganing, went to dances and later became engaged.
Mary worked as a secretary. Grant, her fiancé, might have taken over his father's hardware store in the village had the war not broken out. Instead, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force.
When Grant had an opportunity to fly over Elora, he would tip the plane's wings over the schoolyard, circle and drop a letter weighted with a stone.
Home on leave, he took Mary to the Old Mill in Toronto, creating memories of romantic evenings that held promise of their lives after the war. But just before it ended his plane was shot down in action. Grant was killed on March 31, 1945, and buried in Holland.
The war destroyed Mary's dreams of marrying and having children, but it could not steal her love for the children around her. She adored her nieces and nephews and was incredibly kind to every child in the neighbourhood.
On weekend afternoons, two or three of her current tribe enjoyed hikes through the park along the Grand River. "We're going on a walk, not a run," she would say. In the summer the outings ended with sipping frosty milkshakes. On winter days she treated her small companions to hot chocolate.
To be escorted by Mary on Halloween meant receiving the best treats. At her Friends' homes, the store-bought molasses candies might be exchanged for homemade taffy apples, popcorn balls or fudge.
Through the years, Mary encouraged little ones as they passed her home on their first day of school, clasping the hands of parents whom she may well have witnessed making the same pilgrimage.
As long as she could live in her green-gabled home, she was content. She made one trip overseas to visit the cemetery where Grant was buried. Their engagement picture, a portrait of two young people whose futures were rent by war, hung on the wall of her room in the retirement home where she died.
Mary WAIND is one of Mary's neighbourhood kids and a lifelong friend.

WAINWRIGHT o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-10-09 published
WAINWRIGHT, Audrey Beatrice (née JACKSON)
Mother, grandmother, volunteer, bridge player, singer. Born August 5, 1903, in Toronto. Died September 17 of natural causes in Vancouver, aged 104.
By Deborah K. WAINWRIGHT, Page L6
In the end they were still there: that incredible sparkling smile in her bright blue eyes, and a song. At 104, my grandmother was singing and sparkling to the end.
Audrey Beatrice JACKSON began her journey in 1903. Her mother, Elizabeth GRAHAM, was fifth-generation Canadian. Her father, Herbert JACKSON, an immigrant from the United Kingdom, worked at The Montreal Star.
His love of words helped foster her voracious reading habit. Her longevity can only be chalked up to stubbornness.
Although the family lived in Montreal, Audrey's summers were spent at Ontario's Sparrow Lake. Photographs show her and her pals on the running board of a Model T Ford and in a cedar strip canoe.
In the 1920s, she pushed the gender barrier while working as assistant to future supermarket mogul Theodore Pringle Loblaw. (Her future husband would command her to leave that job.)
Handsome British ex-pat Charlie WAINWRIGHT won her heart. In 1932, they were married and moved to Windsor, Ontario, where Charlie worked at the Canada Life Assurance Company. They had three children; two boys and a girl.
Audrey could never sit still and volunteering became her passion. She played a major role in Toronto's Parent Teacher Association.
Raising three kids during the Great Depression and the Second World War was a great challenge but one she faced with determination and pride.
A special memory passed on to me was the VE Day celebration when Audrey took her children to the candy store and told them they could buy anything they wanted - a big extravagance marking the importance of the day.
In 1947, Charlie was transferred to Vancouver, and there Audrey found ways to feed her volunteer enthusiasm. In the late 1960s, now a widow, she became a Meals on Wheels volunteer and continued to do this well into her 80s.
When she moved into a retirement home, she continued to volunteer, helping new residents get settled.
Audrey played both lawn bowling and bridge with a fierce competitiveness. Her bridge club met every Tuesday for more than 50 years. Audrey cheated like a criminal.
Five years ago, Audrey was the matron of honour at my wedding. Escorted down the aisle by two of her eight grandchildren, she smiled at me as I said my vows and held my hand as I signed the register.
And in all these years she sang: Roll out the Barrel, Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree, Hey Good Lookin', words forgotten replaced by words made up.
The day before she died we sang together.
Deborah K. WAINWRIGHT is Audrey's granddaughter.
