DESJARDINS, Doris (née McCOSHEN)
Wife, mother, grandmother, community supporter. Born November 28, 1925, in Île du Grand Calumet, Quebec Died October 14, 2007, in Sudbury, Ontario, of a stroke, aged 81.
By Amy COULTERMAN, Page L6
Doris went through life with the full force of her fiery red hair. She was mischievous and independent; to the consternation of her siblings, she always came out "smelling like a rose."
She was born Doris McCOSHEN to parents Irene and Gerald. The family, including Doris's two brothers and three sisters, moved during the Depression to Sudbury, where Gerald took a job in the mining industry.
Doris decided not to go to high school, instead taking a job at a laundromat. In 1945, she met Wilfred DESJARDINS, a friend of her brothers. They married on Christmas Day, 1947. They were together for almost 57 years, until Wilfred's death in 2004.
Wilfred had quit school at 16 and lied about his age to begin working in the mines for Inco, eventually becoming a shift manager. His and Doris's lives around the mines were based on building a strong family and a close-knit community.
Although money was tight at times, Doris encouraged her children - Beverly, Brian, Lorraine and James - in their education and hobbies. As a committee member at the local playground, she made sure the community's facilities were taken care of and that there were plenty of activities for area children. While team sports were common for boys, Doris bemoaned the lack of activities for girls. So when she found out about a new hockey-like sport called ringette, she was the first to offer it at the playground in the winter of 1963. She became the first coach of the first organized ringette team in Canada.
Doris was always willing to help others. She was a member of her church's Catholic Women's League for more than 25 years and she delivered Meals on Wheels, having learned to drive at 45, when she and Wilfred bought their first car.
As the couple aged, they bought a trailer site at a camp outside the city. Doris's children and grandchildren have fond memories of 25 summers of swimming, playing and cooking over an open fire.
Even after a quadruple bypass and a stroke that left her nearly blind in one eye, Doris - lovingly known as Nan, Nana and Queenie - continued to be an avid spectator at her grandchildren's sports tournaments, dance competitions and theatre performances. She taught all who were interested how to cook sugar pies, butter tarts and pickles.
When her children were cleaning her house after she passed away, they found wishbones hanging over the kitchen sink. There were nine, one for each of her grandchildren. Doris's joking and her independent spirit will be missed, but her joy and best wishes remain.
Amy COULTERMAN is Doris's granddaughter.

COULTIS, who passed away October 22, 2002.
It was six years ago today
That you very quietly slipped away.
A release from all your suffering and pain
We could not ask you to remain.
We miss your lovely smile and wit
Your hugs and the chance to chat a bit.
It is lonely here as life goes on
But we know you are happy where you have gone.

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.

Maggy REEVES, 85: Couturier
Austrian-born designer clothed Canada's rich and famous
By Iris NOWELL, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
Toronto -- As a child, fashion designer Maggy REEVES became acquainted with immense wealth and one of its conspicuous spinoffs - beautifully dressed women. It changed her life so that years later she would attain the pinnacle of fashion excellence in Canada.
Born into uncertain times in Austria in 1924, she was christened Margarethe WEISZ. As a nine-year-old growing up in Austria she sensed only faint stirrings of the unrest around her. In 1937, she gained an abrupt understanding when her Jewish father, Robert WEISZ, fled the Nazis and escaped abroad, leaving behind his Catholic wife and daughters Margarethe and Trude.
During the Second World War, the threesome moved to the countryside where they were spared the worst of the conflict. In 1947, Margarethe married Willibald NAGENZAUM, a bookkeeper she had known from her school days. The marriage lasted only two years and she, with son Frederick, left Vienna to join her father in the Dominican Republic. There, she discovered he had bigamously married a niece of Rafael TRUJILLO, the country's infamous dictator. Margarethe and her son moved in with her father and his wife and, in doing so, rubbed shoulders with the elite of society. The women, she discovered, were stunningly dressed.
"I was so jealous," she said years later. "I showed off by making the wildest clothes." This achieved the desired effect: "People looked at me."
By 1949, however, she had grown unhappy living with her father's new wife and ran off and married James COURTNEY, a well-to-do Texan. This proved to be a mistake. After two tumultuous years in Dallas, they divorced and she moved to New York where she became an apprentice pattern maker.
In 1953, she moved to Montreal where she broadened her experience as a junior designer. Two years later, she settled in Toronto. There she got a foothold in couture by custom designing high-fashion clothes. By then known as Maggy, she set up a business in her home on Bayview Avenue in Toronto's Moore Park neighbourhood and hired three women as seamstresses. In her window she hung a sign: "L'elegance - Paris, Toronto, Haute Couture."
"Maggy organized little fashion shows in the living room," said her friend Edith BILEK, a fellow Austrian who served clients tea and sandwiches. "That's how Maggy began."
The business developed quickly but lacked capital to expand. A client named Reva JOSEPH, whose husband was a prosperous car dealer, offered the necessary backing. The new business was named Maggy Reeves, which is derived from their first names - Maggy and Reva. In 1957, the Maggy Reeves salon opened on Cumberland Street in Toronto. Over time, Maggy adopted it as her own name.
The business flourished and in 1962 she married Otto SOMLAI, a Hungarian who had fled the 1956 revolution. At first, he worked in a furniture factory but later quit to work alongside his wife.
By that time her salon enjoyed a staff of European-trained women who painstakingly produced the handwork that was the Maggy Reeves imprimatur -- beading, quilting, hand painting and embroidery. Working with fine silk chiffon, for example, a design might comprise six or eight hem lengths, each hand-rolled and stitched so fine the stitches were scarcely visible. Such filmy chiffon and tiny stitches allowed a dress to "float" as the wearer walked. It was a distinct mark of couture.
Ms. REEVES's workers spent hundreds of hours on handwork she could never afford to charge. Prices of her ball gowns averaged $2,000 to $3,000, which in Paris or New York would be 10 times higher. Her costliest design was $10,000.
Interestingly, the customer was not always right. If Ms. REEVES felt an outfit would not be flattering, she refused to make it and instead devised a glamorous alternative. She steered women away from tight-fitting clothes they thought were sexy. "If you wear something too tight that shows your bumps," she once told a reporter, "you will look like a snake that has swallowed eggs."
In October of 1964, an afternoon tea and fashion show at the Park Plaza Hotel put her salon on the map. Organized by her friend and public-relations whiz, the late Catherine SMYTH, the event was intended to expose Toronto women to haute couture suits, coats and ball gowns that were the equal of Paris, Rome and New York.
"Everybody went ga-ga," recalls Anne CASEY, a client who modelled in the show. "People wanted to buy the clothes right off your back."
Clientele grew quickly and Ms. REEVES often had difficulty obtaining high-quality fabrics in Canada. Twice a year, she travelled to textile mills in France, Italy and Austria in search of the best materials. Frequently, she went to New York for the luxurious ribbons, piping, vintage beads and Swarovski crystal buttons that gave her designs their characteristic touch.
In 1977, a star-studded charity fashion show in Los Angeles earned recognition in the U.S. The show, in support of the Loretta Young Auxiliary of Saint Anne's Maternity Hospital and Home for Unwed Mothers, was organized by Toronto broadcast journalist Edie FRANKEL. The clothes were modelled by the wives of actors and the event attracted celebrities and young starlets.
However, it also produced a big problem.
"Maggy took one look at the models and said, 'I told you, no breasts!' Ms. FRANKEL recalled. All along, Ms. REEVES had been concerned that naturally busty women and breast-implanted women would not fit her fashions. Fortunately, she had brought along a sewing machine, and her assistant Franca RANIERE immediately made alterations.
Ms. REEVES continued as a leader in Canadian haut couture for some years after that but demand diminished in the 1990s as fashion changed to ultra casual wear. Nonetheless, with one part-time worker she continued to make couture in her Toronto apartment for a few loyal clients.
Maggy REEVES was born Margarethe Katharina WEISZ in Vienna, Austria, on October 11, 1924. She died April 9, 2008, in Toronto of heart failure. She was 85. She is survived by her sister, Trude, and her son Fred Courtney. She was predeceased by her husband, Otto, in 1991.
