In loving memory of my beloved husband Floyd, who passed away June 9, 2000.
Along the road to yesterday
That leads me straight to you
Are the memories of the happy days
Together we once knew
And sometimes in the evening
I seem to have a way
Of wandering back to meet you
On the road to yesterday
In all that life has given me
And all that's left to do
I never had a greater gift
Than the years I spent with you
It's lonely here without you
I miss you more each day
For life is not the same for me
Since you were called away
Your memory is my keepsake
With which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart

She found her calling in long-running Prince Edward Island musical Anne of Green Gables
For 30 years, the mezzo-soprano played Marilla Cuthbert at the Charlottetown Festival in Prince Edward Island. The part 'set me free to be myself. That's exactly what happened'
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Halifax -- On Prince Edward Island, Elizabeth MAWSON's name is synonymous with Marilla Cuthbert, the stern spinster who raises the red-headed heroine in Lucy Maud Montgomery's legendary story, Anne of Green Gables.
The Toronto-born mezzo-soprano first arrived on the island in 1968 to take part in the Charlottetown Festival. Three years later, she landed the role of Marilla in the musical-theatre adaptation of the famous book. The part was hers for the next 30 years.
Ms. MAWSON's voice and elegant presence on stage became an anchor in the musical and provided the show with a certain continuity, as actors came and went over the years. She played opposite as many as 11 different young actresses in the role of Anne.
During the three decades she played Marilla, she fell in love with not only the role, but the island. "It's the most incredible thing in my life. And, actually, this is the biggest thing in my life. I feel that I'm really more myself [here]," she told Charlottetown's The Guardian in an interview in 2000. "You know, how you become another person when you are home and you have your children, your family, your bills to pay and everything else. But, on Prince Edward Island, I'm set free. Playing Marilla has set me free to be myself. That's exactly what happened."
Jack McAndrew, the festival's producer from 1968 to 1975, remembers trying out Ms. MAWSON for the role of Marilla. During the audition, she sang The Words, in which Marilla mourns the loss of her brother Matthew and laments her inability to express her emotions.
"She was the soaring, pure soprano," Mr. McAndrew said. "She gave the song a whole new meaning. It was incredibly touching."
Discussing her audition with then-festival artistic director Alan Lund, Mr. McAndrew said they decided that if they hired Ms. MAWSON she would change the nature of the show because of her strengths as a singer. At the time, she was replacing comedic actor Barbara Hamilton, who had premiered the role in Charlottetown. While they feared the show might lose some of its humour, they agreed that Ms. MAWSON should be hired.
Mr. McAndrew said their fears were never realized. "She put her own stamp on it," he said. "She just gave the role a touch of class."
Raised in Toronto, she was one of six children whose father ran a paint store on Yonge Street. Although her family was not particularly musical, she proved to possess a natural gift for song. In her teens, she began singing in public and performed in army concerts during the Second World War. In the mid-1940s, she took up singing in earnest and began studying with a music teacher in Toronto. It was there that she met a fellow student named Howard MAWSON. The couple later married and began singing together with the Eaton Operatic Society. For close to 50 years, they volunteered as soloists at St. Andrew's United Church in Toronto.
Within a few years of their meeting, Mr. MAWSON helped found the Gilbert and Sullivan Society, Toronto branch, one of several hundred such groups around the world devoted to the study or performance of the 14 light comedic operas written by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan between 1871 and 1896. Not unexpectedly, Ms. MAWSON appeared in several G&S productions in Toronto over the years.
In 1966, she played Martha in Faust and Flora in La Traviata with the Canadian Opera Company. She also performed at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Her roles there included Hebe in H.M.S. Pinafore in 1960, and Marcellina in The Marriage of Figaro in 1964 and 1965.
In 1968, Ms. MAWSON and her husband joined the Charlottetown Festival company. When she arrived in Prince Edward Island, she had already celebrated her 40th birthday and, having worked as a secretary in a government office to help pay the bills, looked forward to doing what she loved best. Her first role in Anne of Green Gables was that of Rachel Lynde, the village busybody.
Her husband took on a couple of supporting roles that season but never returned to the company. But Ms. MAWSON went back year after year.
Mr. McAndrew said Ms. MAWSON helped to give the production stability. "She became the anchor for Anne."
Off-stage, Ms. MAWSON loved to play bridge, organize picnics for her colleagues or spend lazy summer afternoons at the beach flying a kite. On the streets in Charlottetown, she could often be seen wearing a large-brimmed straw hat and skipping down the street. Almost every Sunday, she could be found singing as a guest soloist at any church that cared to ask.
"She just embraced life," said her friend Gracie Finley, who played Anne for several years.
Ms. MAWSON's Friends said that as a performer, she was the consummate professional who felt privileged to be a part of the musical. She lacked a huge ego, did not take herself too seriously and loved nothing more than to share stories with Friends.
"Until the day she died, she sang like a bird," said her friend and fellow cast member Glenda Landry. "Her voice floated on air."
Ms. Landry, who played the part of Diana Barry and shared a dressing room with Ms. MAWSON for a decade, said they shared many happy festival moments. "Every night before we went on, we would sing harmonies to warm up," she told The Guardian. "We would all hold hands during the overture."
Ms. MAWSON's affection for the long-running production embraced everyone. Every night during the season, she treated the stage crew to cookies or some other sweet.
Ms. Landry remembers the fun Ms. MAWSON and the female members of the cast had putting together a Ladies of Avonlea calendar as a fundraiser in the early 1990s. Dressed in corsets and long pantaloons, Ms. MAWSON showed no qualms in striking a sexy pose for the camera.
In 2000, however, she was suddenly forced to retire from the stage. She had returned to Charlottetown prepared to perform that season but realized that Alzheimer's disease had firmly taken hold. "She had a memory like a steel trap, but she was forgetting all her lines," Ms. Landry said.
Other members of the cast started to see the signs five years earlier, when Ms. MAWSON would occasionally say the wrong word during a performance. She continued to perform because others in the cast were always able to cover for her, and because the mistakes were so small the audience didn't notice.
Despite being unable to perform during the 2000 season, Ms. MAWSON chose to remain in Charlottetown and enjoy her last summer on the island. "Isn't it wonderful, how this beautiful, little show [Anne of Green Gables] has survived for so long in the hearts of so many people?" she told The Guardian in 2000. "I think it's because it touches the heart."
Elizabeth MAWSON was born February 14, 1927, in Toronto. She died February 16, 2008, at the Humber River Regional Hospital in Toronto. She was 81 and suffered from Alzheimer's disease. She is survived by sons Allan and Douglas, and sister Beryl FARR. She was predeceased by her husband in 2004. He also suffered from Alzheimer's disease.

Tool maker became an inventor to found a firm that led the world
After apprenticing at General Electric in Peterborough, Ontario, he went out on his own and developed a process that was soon in demand. At its peak, his company had five plants in the U.S., Canada, and Britain
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Halifax -- An industrial innovator whose mind never seemed to sleep, William (Bill) FISHER created machines that have been used to make everything from monopoly pieces and bicycle gears, to car parts and the blades for jet engines.
A tool maker by trade, Mr. FISHER founded Peterborough, Ontario-based FisherCast Global, previously known as Fisher Gauge, in 1942. Over the next few decades he turned it into an international player specializing in precision die casting, which involves forcing melted metal at high speed into exactly-designed moulds. At its peak, the company had more than 700 employees and five plants in Canada, Britain and the United States.
"He was so passionate about what he did," said his daughter Jane ULRICH.
Mr. FISHER wasn't just passionate about his job. He was a perfectionist, who often got his best ideas in the middle of the night. He never went far from his work. Initially, he lived across the street from the Fisher Gauge plant, and later in a house behind the plant. The installation was just 30 metres from his backdoor, so it wasn't a surprise for employees working the night shift to see him hunched over the drafting table in his office at 3 a.m.
"He would get these brain waves at ungodly hours," Ms. Ulrich said. "His mind was always going."
One of the secrets to his success was an absence of stress. "He didn't worry because he wasn't in it for the money," she said. "He just never dreamed it [the company] would get to the size it did. It was so much bigger than he thought it would become."
He often said that if things didn't work out, he could always get a job again at Canadian General Electric Company (now GE Canada), where he started his career.
Born in England' industrial Midlands, Mr. FISHER fell in love with tools as a child and dreamed of following in his father's footsteps. His father, Fred, was a tool maker first in Britain and later in Canada. In 1923, the family emigrated to Canada and settled in Peterborough, where the elder Mr. FISHER got a job at Westclox, the makers of the Big Ben and Baby Ben alarm clocks.
Bill FISHER's dream came true. He left high school at 15 and apprenticed at General Electric. Earning 15 cents an hour, he learned what he called "the industrial facts of life." Within 10 years he was making gauges and other components for GE equipment destined for the front lines in the Second World War.
Mr. FISHER's first workshop was in an old chicken coop located behind his family home. He then moved his shop into the basement, just metres from his mother's laundry area.
After founding Fisher Gauge, he initially designed and manufactured tools and gauges for other companies in town. Early on, Canadian General Electric asked him to tackle the problem of attaching a disk to a thin shaft. It was just the kind of challenge he liked. His answer was to develop a hot-chamber, die-casting system that joined the two components with injected molten metal to precise tolerances. In the end, the assembly formed the core of an electric watt-hour meter.
By the mid-1950s, the North American meter industry had adopted the process. During the next 20 years, Mr. FISHER travelled the world, selling machines to leading meter companies. He continued to work on developing the process for a wide range of applications. In the late 1950s, both the telephone and automotive industries were looking for metal parts cast in zinc alloy, which led the company to adapt its hot-chamber, die-casting system and produce proprietary zinc alloy.
As Mr. FISHER's business grew, he asked his brothers Frank and Chester, who also apprenticed as tool makers at GE, to join him. (Interestingly, their father also signed on as a tool maker after retiring from Westclox.)
In 1954, Chester took over the management of Fisher Gauge, while Bill focused on what he loved best: finding solutions to problems.
"He was more of an innovator and an inventor," said Greg WALLING, current president of FisherCast Global. "He wasn't a paper pusher."
Mr. FISHER was the first to admit that selling was not his strong point.
"I was the world's worst salesman. I'd just go in and talk technically," he once said. Even so, the approach often worked. "If you can solve the problem for them, they don't care whether you're a salesman or not."
Fisher Gauge saw huge growth with the sale of zinc castings. In 1964, it opened a casting factory in Watertown, New York and the company went on to ship billions of castings for use in everything from car doors and games to window fixtures and telephone cables.
In parallel with the growth of the casting business, Mr. FISHER ventured into the aviation industry. In 1960, General Electric engineers in Massachusetts invited him to help with the machining of jet-engine blades. He came up with a solution in which the blade is encapsulated in zinc, and the capsule allows it to be gripped without damage for machining. The capsule is broken off when machining is complete. Later, when Rolls Royce engineers were struggling to make blades for the first Concorde passenger jet, Mr. FISHER was called to Scotland.
A precise man, Mr. FISHER loved his daily routines. He walked home every day for lunch and would follow his meal with a 30-minute nap, always making sure he did not sleep for a minute more or less.
A modest, unassuming man, Mr. FISHER's only real luxury was his 12-metre cabin cruiser which he loved to tour Georgian Bay in every summer with his wife Shirley. The one trip he never got to do was to take his boat to Florida. Seldom absent for more than a two weeks, he just couldn't pull himself away from his shop for the three weeks required to cruise south on the Intracoastal Waterway.
The last of the FISHER brothers, he retired in 1998. (Chester had died of cancer in 1992, and Frank died from a bee sting at 36.) He himself suffered a series of strokes and then a heart attack. For all that, he moved no further away than the house over the back fence. From there, he would watch FisherCast employees take their coffee breaks. Knowing they had 11-minute breaks, he would time them. If he saw some taking 13 or 14 minutes he would ask that his daughter Jane, who sits on the company's board of directors, talk to their managers about the problem. The company remains family-owned, but professionally managed.
Mr. FISHER received many awards during his career, and in 1986 he received an honorary law degree from Trent University.
William Fredrick FISHER was born on December 18, 1917, in Birmingham, England, and died on March 19, 2008, in Peterborough, Ontario He was 90, and suffered from congestive heart failure. He leaves his wife, Shirley, and his children Paul, Douglas, Susanne and Jane. He also leaves his sister, Eileen, eight grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

John McMULKIN, 92: Steelmaker
Engineer 'was a giant of the Canadian steel industry'
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Events that transpired following a research trip to Austria in the early 1950s turned a Hamilton-based inquiring metallurgical engineer into a pioneer of modern steelmaking. Called "the father of oxygen steelmaking in North America," John McMULKIN convinced the managers of Dofasco in 1954 to invest in a new process that would not only catapult the company into a major Canadian steelmaker, but at the same time revolutionize the industry.
As the inaugural head of Dofasco's research department, he travelled the world in search of new technologies. Aware that Austria and Germany had been developing techniques to use oxygen in the steelmaking process during the Second World War, he decided to visit Austria in the early 1950s to see what it was all about.
"He realized it [the technology] was going to be a breakthrough," said Norm LOCKINGTON, retired vice-president of research at Dofasco (now called ArcelorMittal Dofasco).
Like most North American steel firms at that time, Dofasco was using an open-hearth furnace to make steel. In that process, carbon-rich molten iron is burned in gigantic open hearths for hours to allow the carbon to burn off and produce steel. In contrast, Austrian steelmakers had discovered that pure oxygen blown into the furnace at a high pressure dramatically accelerated the process. What would take up to 16 hours to produce in the old open hearths took half an hour in the oxygen furnace, Mr. LOCKINGTON said.
Mr. McMULKIN returned to Canada excited by what he had witnessed in Austria and was impatient to try it at home. He ran trials at the plant in Hamilton and successfully persuaded his superiors at Dofasco to install a basic oxygen furnace in 1954. When the furnace churned out its first batch of steel, Dofasco became the first company to apply the technology outside of Europe. "Within 10 years, steelmaking had changed," Mr. LOCKINGTON said. Before long, companies across the United States were knocking at Dofasco's door, anxious to learn how they too could implement the new technology.
The oxygen furnaces - which today stand five storeys high and hold enough steel to make 200 cars - remain the common standard for steelmaking around the world. More than half of Dofasco's steelmaking today comes from an oxygen furnace and the remainder from an electric arc furnace.
"He was a giant of the Canadian steel industry," said Gordon IRONS, director of McMaster University's Steel Research Centre. "He put Dofasco on the map. Before he came along they were a small company, but they became a large, successful company that put a great emphasis on research and development."
Raised in the steelmaking city of Sault Ste. Marie in Northern Ontario, John McMULKIN was an only child. His father was the well-regarded owner of a dry-goods store who was also active in local politics. After receiving a scholarship, young John headed off to the Michigan College of Mining and Technology, where he studied metallurgical engineering.
After graduation, he returned home to work at Algoma Steel. He later joined the Ontario Research Foundation in Toronto, where, during the war years, he worked on plate welding for light armoured vehicles. In 1945, at Toronto's Deer Park United Church badminton club, Mr. McMULKIN met his future wife, Margaret. A year later they were married.
Immediately following the war, he went to Dofasco in Hamilton on a research fellowship. A year later, he joined its staff and was asked to start up a research department. By his retirement in 1985, he had 80 people working with him.
"He was a one-person research department in the early days. He could just make things happen in a hurry," Mr. LOCKINGTON said. "He was sometimes frustrated that things couldn't happen as fast as they did in the early days."
While some considered him gruff or impatient, everyone respected his knowledge of the industry, his dedication to his job and his intelligence. "He had an inquiring mind and a very brilliant mind," said his wife, Margaret McMULKIN.
While basic oxygen steelmaking remained the crowning achievement of his career, Mr. McMULKIN would go on to make other major improvements in steelmaking. Under his guidance, Dofasco became the first company in Canada to add an electrolytic tinning line used to make tin-plated steel for tin cans. He is also credited for developing Dofasco's mining properties.
While he retired in the mid-1980s, he continued to stay abreast of new advances in steelmaking. He often visited his old office and still felt connected to the company. As much as he was fascinated by the science of steelmaking, he liked people just as much. "He was the kind of person who saw it as his role to mentor young people," Mr. LOCKINGTON said.
Aside from being awarded an honorary doctor of engineering degree from the Michigan Technological University, Mr. McMULKIN also received almost every award available from steelmaking industry associations.
Francis John McMULKIN was born on December 7, 1915, in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario He died February 18, 2008, of prostate cancer. He was 92. He leaves his wife, Margaret, and children Bruce and Mary McMULKIN.
