Cecilia (Cissie) SIM was an eyewitness to three centuries
By Michael Erskine
MANITOULIN – She was the queen of Squirreltown, the revered matriarch of
a storied family and a woman whose love and compassion inspired everyone
she met in the course of a life that spanned nearly 110 years and three
of the most interesting centuries of human endeavour.
“She was certainly the Island’s oldest resident,” said great-nephew Rob
MAGUIRE of Manitowaning. “When you think about it, she wasn’t that far
off being one of the oldest people in the world.”
Mr. MAGUIRE gave testimony to the life of his great aunt and her impact
on him. “She was always there and I never, ever, heard her say a bad
thing about anybody,” he said. “We all cherished aunt Cissie – I feel
blessed to have known her.”
Mr. MAGUIRE said that the measure of a person’s impact on the world could
often be seen in the values of the families they build. “She epitomized
what family is all about – loving, caring and sharing,” he said. “You
look at the BROWN and COND families and they are full of loving, caring
people – that came down from Aunt Cissie.”
Mrs. Sim was born Cecilia MAGUIRE on July 9, 1898. She was born to John
and Cecilia MAGUIRE on a farm in Bidwell, moving with her parents to the
farm in Hilly Grove when she was about a year old. She remained on that
farm until her marriage to Grenville Sim in the Hilly Grove United Church
on July 8, 1924. It was a love affair that lasted until Mr. Sim died in 1975.
“Mom used to always say that her birthday present that year was my dad,”
said Roberta BROWN, “She loved him very much.”
Mrs. BROWN and her sister Cora COND of Sault Sainte Marie were the two
children born to Cissie Sim and her husband. There were 13 grandchildren
and 31 great grandchildren and four great great grandchildren. It is said
that few families even know their ancestors names back past two
generations, let alone recall three generations back. For the descendants
of Cissie Sim, they actually met and knew her, and were privy to her
stories of life in another age.
“We were truly blessed,” said Mr. MAGUIRE.
Mrs. Sim excelled in the role of farmer’s wife and pioneer – but she was
far from being of rough stock. “Oh how mumma could bake,” recalled Mrs.
COND. “She could work all day in the kitchen baking and not get a spot of
flour on her clothes – she was spotless.”
Mrs. Sim also excelled as the consummate seamstress. “My mother’s mother
was a seamstress in Scotland,” said Mrs. BROWN. “I guess she passed it
down to momma. Cora is a good seamstress too – but I think it passed me
by.” Mrs. BROWN recalled that her mother made most of the family’s
clothes. “I think I was about 16 before I got my first store-bought coat.”
Mrs. Sim was always impeccably groomed and stylishly dressed – whether
she was on her way to play in the United or Anglican Church.
“I remember a story about the Anglican minister at the time, a Mr.
Peltier – quite a character, a jolly, huge man,” said Mrs. COND. “He told
his parish council that: ‘We will hire Cecilia Sim to play the organ at
the same price as last year.’ Of course she played for nothing. She never charged.”
Life was not easy for the Sim family, having lived through the Great
Depression – not to mention the stringent rationing of two world wars –
but perspective is enlightening. Her favorite epoch, she said in her
final years, was the Depression.
“Leave it to this amazing woman to see the good in such a devastating
time,” said Jamie Dowhaniuk, a great-grand_son-in-law during the eulogy he
delivered at her service. “She said it (the Depression) was good because
it was a time that brought people together.”
Mrs. Sim would say hello to everyone she met – in the grocery store,
getting the mail, just walking down the street. “She always said, “You
never know when your paths will cross again,” recalled Mrs. BROWN.
Cissie Sim was witness to the transition from horse and buggy to
spaceships – it is impossible for a third millennium mind to fully grasp
the changes she had seen. Her husband always farmed with a horse, never
even owning a tractor, even though he farmed right into the 1970s.
Asked what the best technological advance had been, she without
hesitating would reply ‘hydro,’ recalled Mrs. BROWN. “If you could
imagine, she always kept the family’s clothes spotless, even the whites,
and she did it all with her bare hands and a washboard.”
Although hydro may have freed Mrs. Sim from the drudgery of the
washboard, not everything about it was sublime.
“She would never cook the turkey in the electric stove,” recalled Mrs.
COND. “She said it tasted better (from a wood-fired oven.”) Mrs. Sim
would somewhat less than affectionately refer to the electric stove
as “that thing.” The dishwasher was known even less lovingly as “the
animal.”
“Given the choice,” said Mr. Dowhaniuk, “she would have starved “the
animal” and done all of her dishes by hand.”
Mrs. Sim continued to wash her own windows into her 90s.
Mr. Dowhaniuk listed the lessons his great-grandmother Cissie imparted to
her Friends and family through example in her long life.
“Treat everyone with kindness. She said hello to people she met on the
street, in stores, at doctor’s offices…’You never know’ she would
say ‘Our paths may not cross again.’
Any guests to her home were given a most genuine heartfelt welcome and
the royal treatment after that – starting with a scrumptious tea party.
They were never rushed out or made to feel they were imposing. In fact,
when guests announced it was time to leave, they were met with
resistance – ‘You can’t leave yet.’
Another lesson learned, continued Mr. Dowhaniuk, was to “support your
family. The story that comes to mind happened when she wanted her sister
Mary Lane to move in with her so that grandma could look after her. She
was inconsolable when she was told that it was not a good idea – after
all she was only 95 and needed to look after her sister.”
Mrs. Sim garnered useful habits through her life, he said, including
to “be resourceful and conserve. Grandma modeled this behaviour and it no
doubt came as a result of living through the Depression and two world
wars having lived through times when flour and sugar were rationed. Those
experiences develop life-long habits of conservation – always using the
outhouse to conserve the well water, using cereal bags to wrap food, and
using a peeler instead of a knife so as not to cut too much of the
vegetable off.”
“Take care of yourself. Grandma Cissie was very active and fit as an
equal partner on the farm. She always looked her best, whether she was
working in the fields, painting her fence, washing windows – she was
always decked out, hair done, nails done, and dressed to the nines,” said
Mr. Dowhaniuk. “Although she paid a lot of attention to her outer
wrapping, we all know her true beauty was on the inside. And taking care
of yourself also involves living with your eyes open – as big as saucers,
maybe, and standing up for what you believe.”
But perhaps the most important lesson of all Mr. Dowhaniuk related during
his eulogy was to: “Live your love. Grandma Cissie modeled a loving
relationship with Grenville, the love of her life. I’ve often heard of
those wishing to pattern their love after their relationship. They met in
a one-room schoolhouse, were married in 1924, and the rest, as they say,
is history. Their thorough love was apparent in their marriage as they
worked together, and played together. Whether it was their fifth, 15th or
50th anniversary year, there they were, sitting side-by-side in whatever
mode of transportation they had at the time. She has missed him so much
these past 33 years – there wasn’t a day that she didn’t miss him, not a
day didn’t think of him and look forward to being reunited with him. They
say absence makes the heart grow fonder – oh my goodness. If you saw how
much in love they were, just imagine augmenting that over 33 years –
that’s life-long love.”
Cissie Sim lived a fruitful life and she left behind a legacy to her
community. That legacy will span 10 times 10 the long years of her life
here, on earth. She embodied all that is right and good in the rural
lifestyle.

FOX--In loving memory of Joseph Irving Fox Junior "Sonny Boy." Waasaanese
Nbiish. October 1, 1969 - February 19, 2007
He fought so hard to stay with us
He knew we'd miss him so
But God knew he was hurting
And said, "It's time to go."
He suffered long without complaint
Oh yes, he paid his dues
He never once said "pity me"
Just smiled and saw it through.
His pain has stopped, the hurting done,
How we miss his dear sweet face.
God took his hand and led him home
He's in a better place.
One year ago he left us
With fond memories ever more
We all know he will be waiting
On the other shore.
CANCER IS SO LIMITED
It cannot cripple LOVE
It cannot shatter HOPE
It cannot corrode FAITH
It cannot eat away PEACE
It cannot destroy CONFIDENCE
It cannot kill FRIENDSHIP
It cannot shut out MEMORIES
It cannot silence COURAGE
It cannot invade the SOUL
It cannot reduce ETERNAL LIFE
It cannot quench the SPIRIT
It cannot lessen THE POWER OFTHE RESURRECTION OF
JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
Lovingly remembered by Mom and Dad and Family.

Mainstay of Front Page Challenge also co-wrote hit Canadian musical
Sketch writer went from teaching high-school English to turning out a stream of scripts for such popular television shows as Wayne and Shuster and the revue Toronto, Toronto
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Toronto -- At an age when many men go through a midlife crisis, Chuck WEIR went through a midlife career change. He switched from the life of a high-school teacher and football coach at a Toronto private school to being a full-time, television comedy and continuity writer.
While he made his name on Front Page Challenge, he also worked on This is the Law, Wayne and Shuster, King of Kensington, and Hart and Lorne Terrific Hour, and co-wrote a popular musical that ran for more than two years in Toronto in the early 1980s. Much later, just for fun, he resumed coaching football - but in France.
"He was more than just a comedy and variety writer," said his friend Steve Clarke. "He did everything from stage plays to screenwriting."
Chuck WEIR spent his early years in the Toronto neighbourhood of Kensington Market but moved around Ontario after the outbreak of the Second World War. The WEIR family, whose origins lay in Ukraine, suffered a temporary breakup when his father, John, was interned under the War Measures Act because he was a member of the Communist Party. An uncle was also a Communist and union organizer.
As a result, Chuck and his sister Lorna were sent to live with their grandparents on a farm in St. David's, Ontario, where they adapted to rural life and kept a pet calf named Bambi and a piglet called Moonbeam. But life could sometimes turn unpleasant for a city boy. "One day, some older boys convinced him that, to become immune to poison ivy, you had to eat the berries. He almost died," recalled his sister. "He had the rash in his mouth, down his throat and all the way down his esophagus."
He was saved by an emergency trip to the local hospital.
"Since that time, Chuck could roll in a poison ivy patch and never be affected," Lorna CLARK added. "I guess it worked."
At 8, he found celebrity of a different kind. In 1942, he travelled alone by train to see a relative in Lethbridge, Alberta. As it happened, the governor-general, Viscount Alexander, was also on that train and young Chuck was interviewed by the Winnipeg Free Press. "A newswoman interviewed me and asked me a lot of questions for the paper," he wrote his sister at the time. "I astounded everyone with my yo-yo."
Back in Toronto, he showed an early interest in the performing arts by learning Ukrainian dance steps at the Ukrainian Labour Temple on Bathurst Street. There, he learned to do the leaps and squats of traditional Ukrainian dance numbers. Later in life, he taught Ukrainian dancing.
When he was about 13, he went to Camp Naivelt, a Jewish summer camp outside of Toronto that was supported by the Communist Party. Despite the indoctrination, Chuck WEIR never shared his father's ideology. (But it did come back to haunt him when he was once denied entry into the United States because he had the same name as his Communist uncle).
Mr. WEIR attended Humberside Collegiate Institute. There, he proved himself a good student and a natural athlete. He was the quarterback and star player of the football team. Later, he studied journalism at Ryerson, then majored in English at the University of Toronto, where he earned a master's degree. For many years, he taught English, first at Royal York Collegiate and then at University of Toronto Schools. He was also the high-school football coach.
It was about then that he took up writing. He co-wrote two school textbooks and, on the side, wrote scripts for television and for such comedians such as Dave Broadfoot. By 1969, he had given up teaching to write full time.
He was never short of work. Among his early successes was Hart and Lorne Terrific Hour, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation variety show modelled on the popular U.S. show Laugh-In. The show ran in 1970 and 1971 and starred Hart Pomerantz and Lorne Michaels, who later went on to produce Saturday Night Live. He also wrote skits for Wayne and Shuster and This is the Law, featuring panelists and vignettes anchored in the law. His longest gig, however, was spent working for Front Page Challenge.
The longest-running weekly television program of its kind in North America, Front Page Challenge was a game show based on current events. For those too young to remember, an announcer hidden from the four panelists read a recent headline from a newspaper and they would set about identifying the event.
To audiences, the patter of the host, Fred Davis, and the words of the off-camera announcer always seemed unrehearsed. In fact, for half of the life of the program, which ran from 1957 to 1995, the lines were written by Mr. WEIR.
Sometimes, he also was the show's warm-up man, whose job it was to get an audience in the mood before the cameras started to roll. He was so good at it that other programs enlisted his talents, including This is the Law and King of Kensington, a comedy starring Al Waxman set in Mr. WEIR's old neighbourhood.
What interested him the most about working on Front Page Challenge was meeting the guests, who ranged from astronaut Buzz Aldrin to Louise Brown, the world's first test-tube baby, and survivors of a 1972 South American plane crash who survived though cannibalism. He brought them home for dinner. Their story was told in the 1974 book Alive and by the 1993 movie of the same name.
"It opened him up to so many people, and that was one of his favourite parts of the program," said Mr. Clarke, with whom he worked later in his career.
Mr. WEIR also worked on Music of Man, an eight-part 1979 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation series hosted by violinist Yehudi Menuhin that was nominated for an Emmy, and an award-winning 1980 special made with skater Toller Cranston.
"It was the first time anyone had used black ice to shoot a skating program," said his daughter Alissa.
Mr. WEIR also co-wrote Toronto, Toronto, a cabaret-style satirical revue that opened in the Theatre in the Dell in October of 1980, and ran for 31 months. His co-writer, Mark Shekter, went on to a career in Hollywood. The play's hit song was Spadina/China Syndrome. It dealt with the transition of a Jewish neighbourhood to a Chinese one. The lyrics, in part, went as follows:
What can you eat on Spadina?
What is this dish rice fried?
When you are looking for a bagel you get a cookie with message inside.
"It is sung by two old Yiddish gentleman who bemoan the loss of the Jewish garment district which had been overwhelmed by the Chinese community," Mr. WEIR told The Globe and Mail in 1983. "It's not racist, though I've had letters from people who felt it was."
The show, intended as a celebration of the city's burgeoning ethnic diversity, grossed nearly $1-million and was, at that time, the longest-running show of its kind in Canadian history. It was described by then-Globe theatre critic Ray CONLOGUE as "a genuine love letter to the city."
Shortly after the end of its run, Mr. WEIR went to France to write novels. He wrote three, though none was ever published. He lived in Aix-en-Provence for five years, and became coach of a team that played North American football. Called the Aix-en-Provence Argonauts, they won the Coupe d'Or - the European championship of, for the French, a fairly obscure sport. Mr. WEIR was named coach of the year in France.
When he returned to Canada in 1990, he continued to do research and write for Front Page Challenge until it went off the air. He also worked on screenplays with Steve Clarke and pursued many hobbies, from repairing cars to fishing.
"He was a keen outdoorsman," said his daughter Alissa. "Fishing in the Arctic was a lifelong dream that he was able to fulfill. He had incredible skill with his hands from carpentry to tinkering with cars. He said he missed his calling, as he should have been a plastic surgeon because he was so good with his hands."
In the past few years, he and his wife, Carole, did a lot of travelling. One of the more memorable trips was to China, during which they took a boat ride down the Yangtze before the river was made unnavigable by the Three Gorges Dam. On that trip, he wrote, directed and acted in a series of on-board skits that amused his fellow travellers.
Charles William WEIR was born in Toronto on September 20, 1934. He died in Toronto of a brain tumour on January 12, 2008. He was 73. He is survived by his wife, Carole MUTCH, step-son Tony MUTCH and two daughters from his first marriage, Lea and Alissa.

In 1970, Bill began a 36 year career in the History Department at Mount Allison University. He served as Department head for eight years, Dean of Arts for seven years, and Director of Research Administration for three years. A particularly effective teacher and administrator, Bill was pleased with his many students, 49 of whose theses he supervised, several of whom completed their own books and articles. Despite his own heavy load, Bill published a substantial list of works that which will be published in a bibliography in an upcoming Acadiensis issue. Bill was twice honoured with the Paré Award for Excellence in Research and Teaching he also received a Corpus Christi College visiting Fellowship at Cambridge University, and the Stiles-Bennett Professorship of History at Mount Allison University.

He also loved to travel, and although he and Rhianna explored many places in Canada and the U.S., by far his favourite place was the United Kingdom; Bill agreed with Samuel Johnson who said: 'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.'
