AVRITH, Ernest
Our hearts are broken by the loss of our father, grandfather and husband, Ernest AVRITH who died peacefully, surrounded by his family at home on Tuesday, January 8, 2008. Beloved husband of Marilyn SILVERMAN for 59 years. Loving and devoted father and father-in-law of Gale AVRITH and Nadim WAKEAM, Douglas and Pilar AVRITH, Heather AVRITH and William ROSENBERG. Cherished grandfather of Elliot, Kira and Alex WAKEAM; Natasha AVRITH and Eric TOMAN, Samuel, Nita, Harry and Leticia AVRITH; Arlene and David ROSENBERG. Loving great-grandfather of Alexa and Sean TOMAN.
He is remembered as the President of Yellow Shoes which pioneered the idea of low cost self-serve retail stores. He grew the company from 10 stores to one of the largest shoe chains in Quebec. His brilliance as a stylist and his creative genius at retailing helped Yellow become one of the most successful shoe chains in the country and he was known as a leader in the shoe industry. Yellow was so much a part of Quebec culture that one of the three major characters in the play "Broue", a satirical look at working class life in Quebec, was a Yellow store manager.
In the latter part of his life his major challenge was his health and he met it with the same optimism, courage and spirit that he poured into his business.
He was a major benefactor of the Marilyn and Ernest Avrith Liver Transplant Clinic at the Royal Victoria Hospital and the Beth Jacob Teacher's College, Montreal.
Funeral service from Paperman and Sons, 3888 Jean Talon St. W. on Friday, January 11 at 11: 00 a.m. Burial at Congregation Shaar Hashomayim Cemetery, Mt.

He was born October 27, 1921 in a refugee camp in his native Prussia. His parents were Johann and Augusta ROSENFELDT. When he was six weeks old his parents were given the choice of going to Poland or Germany. They chose Germany. His growing up in Germany was full of family, faith, school and sports. He became an avid outdoorsman and camper, which he maintained throughout his lifetime.
After graduating from school he worked for the Deutsche Bank for 26 years prior to he and his wife Wilma immigrating to Canada in 1964. In Canada he worked as a butcher, then a welder at the Collingwood shipyards before going to Toronto where he continued to work as a welder, ultimately on stainless steel hospital equipment.
Following the unexpected death of his wife in 1969, he returned to Dundalk in 1970 where he soon became employed at the Dundalk Co-op in the hardware store, eventually becoming the Co-op manager, a position he held until he retired in 1986. In 1997 he was diagnosed with cancer and courageously battled it until his death. He continued to live in Dundalk until being hospitalized prior to going to Shelburne Residence just before his death.
Heinz credits his mother with teaching him the Bible and a personal relationship with his Lord. He stated she knew her Bible from cover to cover and practiced it.
He was actively involved in numerous organizations. He was a member of Erskine Presbyterian Church, Dundalk; Dundalk Masonic Lodge; Manito Shrine Club, Collingwood and Dundalk Canadian Legion, of which he was the treasurer from 1972 until 1987.
He is survived by two daughters, Christel (Rainer) WIGGERS and Marlies ROSENFELDT and two grand_sons, Jan (Birgit) WIGGERS and Kians WIGGERS, all of Oldenburg, Germany. He was predecensed by his parents Johann and Augusta, a sister, two brothers and both his wives, Marga and Wilma.

Andrew Rainy ROSS passed away peacefully at home on December 12. 2007, cared for by his wife of 44 years, Marjatta, and son, Michael. Predeceased by brother, Donald, sister Elizabeth WAUGH, Andrew is survived by sisters Georgina MATTHEWS and Hope ROSS- PAPEZIK daughter Kristina (David), grandchildren, Annika and Matthew. He is fondly remembered by nieces, nephews and many Friends. Born in Montreal West, his early talent as an artist, particularly in watercolours, led to a career in architecture, graduating from McGill in 1952. He practiced architecture in Calgary and British Columbia, ending his career with the City of Vancouver, but his love of trees and landscape probably exceeded his interest in buildings, French Gothic cathedrals excepted. As a younger man, he was an ardent skier and sports car enthusiast, with the ski day ending in a race down the mountain road. In his 60's his interest in car racing re-emerged, and he drove at tracks across Canada into his late 70's. A memorial service to follow at a later date.

ZABOROWSKI, Eugene
Died peacefully, January 18th, 2008, in his 94th year, after a brief illness at Guelph General Hospital. Born January 6th, 1915, in Tuapsc, Russia, on the Black Sea, Eugene was raised and educated in Poland. He served as a 2nd Leftenant in the Polish Army - Artillery, was captured by the Russians in 1939 and survived the Soviet Gulag labour camps to join the Allied Forces where he trained as an Royal Air Force navigator. In 1950, he immigrated to Canada and settled with his wife Janina, in Oakville, Ontario. He worked for Sun Life Insurance, Dufferin Construction and St. Lawrence Cement until his retirement. His zest for life was evident in the great pleasure he found in the art and craft of every day living. He built his own homes (Campbellville and Erin), raised a menagerie of animals, and grew a thriving garden of fruits and vegetables, all destined for the table. His repertoire also included making his own sausage, smoking bacon, baking his own rye bread, pickling mushrooms, fishing, and telling riveting stories of his war years. He loved languages, tutoring his family and Friends, reciting Polish poetry and practising Russian, until his death. He also loved a good joke, a good drink, a challenging game of bridge, and a rousing discussion with his best friend Ludck Kraszewski, in equal measure. His tender devotion in caring for his wife, Janina, for 15 years after her major stroke, continues to be an inspiration to all of us.
Eugene was predeceased by his wife Janina (Dr. ZABOROWSKA 2000) he is lovingly remembered by his daughter Eva ROSS (John,) son Mark (Kathleen JONATHAN,) and grandchildren Jason ROSS (Heather SMITH,) Jenna VEENSTRA (Dave) and Amanda BELL (Josh,) ten lively great-grandchildren - Gage, Nolan, Jett, Preston and Jaxxon ROSS and Danielle, Jacob, Joanna, Sarah and Rebecca VEENSTRA.
A memorial service will be held at Saint_John Brebeuf Catholic Church on Saturday, January 26th, 2 p.m. at 24 Millwood St. Erin, Ontario with reception to follow. The family wishes to thank the Guelph General Hospital and Riverside Glen staff for their gentle care in his last days.

Uncompromising, transformative professor nurtured students and grudges across borders
Abused as a child in England, he arranged passage to Canada and built a successful but peripatetic academic career
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
Pomp, circumstance and hooded academic gowns were the order of the day when York University celebrated its 40th anniversary in March, 1999. Among the invited guests was John R. SEELEY, the university's first professor of sociology, and a former friend and colleague of inaugural president Murray ROSS.
"What are you doing here?" a clearly affronted Prof. ROSS demanded when Prof. SEELEY, who had travelled from his home in California, arrived at the reception. "I was invited," Prof. SEELEY replied. Enraged, Prof. ROSS threw his gown across the room and stomped out and had to be persuaded to return, according to some of the other guests in attendance.
Prof. ROSS was not alone in his antipathy to Prof. SEELEY, an elfin-like man of diminutive stature (5 foot 4 at a stretch) but outsized moral and intellectual presence. His maddening refusal to compromise personal ethical standards led to his abrupt departure from teaching positions at several universities. Senior bureaucrats at two Ontario universities vetoed decisions to hire him despite his reputation as a top sociologist who eventually had more than 400 publications, including Crestwood Heights: A North American Suburb, Community Chest: A Case Study in Philanthropy, and a collection of psychological essays, The Americanization of the Unconscious.
But the same qualities that frightened administrators and branded him a troublemaker often made him a transformative influence. His capacity for listening, his respect for the individual and his ability to nurture ideas and people, especially children and young adults, made him a moral beacon for many.
"He was more important in my life than either of my parents," criminal lawyer Clayton RUBY said in an interview.
"He picked up everything I was concerned about before I'd finished the sentence and replied, as always, with astute, sensitive advice," said journalist Rick SALUTIN, who, like Mr. RUBY, was a student at York in the early 1960s. "I have no idea what I'll do for advice without him."
Prof. SEELEY grew up physically and emotionally abused in England, experiences that shaped his academic interests as a sociologist, his therapeutic approach as a psychoanalyst and his world view as a citizen.
"It was pretty plain to those of us who knew him that his traumatic and terrible childhood gave birth to a lifelong commitment to treating children well, respecting them as people and honouring their right to be free from abuse," his son Ron said. "The way that he started out being treated as a child, without any recognition of who he was, made him thirsty for knowledge and made him recognize the importance of the emotional nurturing of children."
John Ronald SEELEY was born in the Hampstead area of London in 1913, the second of four sons, to Emil FRIEDEBERG, a German businessman who was a principal in a European commodities firm centred in Antwerp. His mother, Lilly SEELEY, was a wealthy Edwardian society woman who may have been mentally ill. The family probably took her last name because of anti-German sentiment during the First World War.
Young John was beaten and abandoned for long stretches by his mother. After his father died when John was 8, he was sent to a boarding school in Heidelberg, Germany, where he was the youngest pupil by far and unable to speak the language. At 12, he was brought back to England and sent to another boarding school, where the headmaster taught him practical life skills and encouraged him to read, to think for himself and to take pride in his intellectual abilities. John was 15 when he saw what was probably an ad offering passage to Canada and the prospect of land for those willing to work as farm labourers for a specified period of time.
Seeing this as a way to escape his mother, John arranged his passage and worked as a farm labourer for three years, and, with the help of a local Presbyterian minister, completed his high-school education. He moved to Toronto in 1931 and found work as a printer's devil at a graphic arts firm called Rolf Clark Stone. Eventually, he worked his way up to export manager and into the affections of secretary Margaret Mary DEROCHER. Mr. SEELEY left in 1940 to study at the University of Chicago, where he earned a bachelor's degree. He returned to Toronto in 1942, enlisted in the army as a second lieutenant and eventually worked his way up to staff captain. He didn't fight overseas, although he was shipped to London on a short-term project that included a progressive attempt to deal with what we now call post-traumatic stress syndrome and postwar planning for veterans.
In 1943, he and Ms. DEROCHER married in Toronto. Between 1944 and 1955, they had four sons: John, David, Ronald and Peter. After demobilization, he returned to the University of Chicago and began work on his doctorate in sociology. He returned to Toronto in 1949 without having completed his dissertation and took a job as executive director of what is now the Canadian Mental Health Association.
He was also teaching part-time in the psychiatry and sociology departments of the University of Toronto, separate departments that he believed for the rest of his life should be combined. These were also the years when he was researching social mores in Toronto's Forest Hill Village, then studying fundraising methods in Indiana. The SEELEYs moved back to Toronto in late 1956 and he took a job as director of research for what is now the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. That same year, Crestwood Heights was published by the University of Toronto Press. The book, based on his five-year study of Forest Hill (the area was not named), described men working extremely hard to maintain a luxurious lifestyle, wives trained to support their husbands by cultivating social connections, and children inculcated with the same mores so they, too, would learn to value social prestige and wealth. It was a hugely influential book. The following year, the University of Toronto published Community Chest, an examination of organized fundraising in Indianapolis and community perceptions of its effectiveness.
While teaching at the U of T, Prof. SEELEY became friendly with Dr. ROSS, a professor of social work. They talked about the issues of the day, including new approaches to education, given the huge wave of children born after the Second World War who were approaching university age. Many of them felt entitled to higher education and wanted a voice in what and how they were taught. In the preface to The New University (a collection of his speeches that amounted to a draft plan for York University,) Prof. ROSS emphasized the beneficial effects of the more intimate setting of a liberal arts college, acknowledging his debt to Prof. SEELEY for "reading, and commenting on, many of these speeches in their original form."
After Prof. ROSS was named the inaugural president of York in 1959, he invited Prof. SEELEY to join him there as professor of sociology. Within three years, the two men were bitterly and publicly estranged, essentially over the institution's size and nature. By 1963, 10 of the 43-member faculty had resigned, several out of dissatisfaction with Prof. ROSS's leadership and what they felt was muddled thinking and misplaced priorities in turning the university into a massive educational factory. Historian Michiel Horn, author of a forthcoming history of York University, and political scientist Denis SMITH, who served as the university's first registrar, both stated in interviews that amid the challenge to find faculty, establish a curriculum and educate students, Prof. ROSS had a tendency to say what he thought people wanted to hear.
As the relationship soured, Prof. SEELEY arranged to be a visiting professor in the sociology department at Brandeis University for the 1963-64 academic year. While teaching at Brandeis, he resigned from York. The following year, he was a visiting fellow at California's Stanford University, and returned to Brandeis in 1965 as chair of the sociology department. Within a short time, he was at odds with the administration over his political activism against the Vietnam War. He objected vociferously to the university sharing students' personal information (including grades) with the Selective Service System, which administered the military draft.
For most of the next decade, Prof. SEELEY moved his family back and forth across the United States as he took up what invariably turned into short-term appointments at a variety of institutions, including the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, a liberal think tank founded by educational philosopher Robert Hutchins in Santa Barbara, California. This didn't last long, as Prof. Hutchins reorganized the centre two years later after a philosophical and economic parting of the ways that saw many fellows depart, including Prof. SEELEY, and others join, including Alexander Comfort, later the author of The Joy of Sex, and Stanford biologist Paul R. Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb.
Prof. SEELEY yearned to return to Canada, especially Toronto, but his dissident political activity and fractious reputation apparently mitigated against formal invitations. He was a "lightening rod," said Ron SEELEY. "He was just too hot for many people in staid institutions to handle."
Nevertheless, he was offered a faculty position in the sociology department at the University of Toronto in May, 1974, which was overruled by senior administrators. Then, a search committee from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education chose him to fill a sociology department vacancy, but this, too, was vetoed by a senior executive after education minister Thomas Wells telephoned Ontario Institute for Studies in Education director Robert Jackson to pass on negative comments about Prof. SEELEY. Amid student and faculty protests, The Globe and Mail wrote an editorial asking whether Mr. Wells had improperly influenced the decision.
Prof. SEELEY, by then 61, finished his academic career at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles as a professor of sociology. He finally received his doctorate (philosophy - social sciences) from International College on January 15, 1975. At 65, he retired and began a new career as a psychoanalyst in private practice under a supervising analyst.
In his last years, he became a devout member of his local Episcopal Church and maintained Friendships with family and Friends.
"It was a wonderful experience to be his child," Ron SEELEY said. "The breadth of his knowledge and his intellect were amazing. It was interesting as he was ill and passing - you could feel all of what he had distributed around the world coming back toward him in letters, visits and phone calls, and so many of them said the same thing: that he had touched their lives in a way that nobody else had and that he was like a father to them."
John Ronald SEELEY was born in London on February 21, 1913. He died at Saint_John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California., on December 16, 2007, after a short illness. He was 94. Predeceased by his wife and his siblings, he is survived by four sons, six grandchildren and extended family.

Val ROSS, 57: Journalist And Author
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
An award-winning journalist with a lyrical style, a passion for the arts, an acute ear for dialogue and a prodigious memory for arcane details, Val ROSS was a reporter's reporter.
"She knew everyone and everything and she managed to use her sources and her knowledge to advantage, but without ever compromising her sources or cheating her readers," said Edward GREENSPON, editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail. "She had a disarming manner, but she was tough and she wrote the truth."
While undergoing treatment for brain cancer, Ms. ROSS sent Mr. GREENSPON an e-mail urging him to expand the newspaper's coverage of native people. "You really should do this," she wrote. "Attention must be paid." And then in her typically wry way, she talked about the ravages of brain cancer by writing, "I have lost balance a lot, but I bet you always suspected I leaned to the left."
Ms. ROSS was born in Toronto on October 17, 1950, the elder child and only daughter of Erma and Jack ROSS. She went to the Institute of Child Study and Jarvis Collegiate. As talented with a brush as she was with a pen, she attended Saint Martin's School of Art in London, England, after completing high school and thought seriously about becoming a visual artist.
Nevertheless, after a year in swinging London and travelling in Europe, she returned to Canada and entered University College at the University of Toronto in 1969, graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1972. She worked briefly in urban planning and then in broadcasting at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation before building a prolific career as a freelance writer, contributing regularly to magazines such as Chatelaine, Saturday Night and Toronto Life. She was a staff writer and editor for Maclean's magazine in the late 1970s and early 1980s, before being hired as managing editor of The Globe and Mail's now defunct Toronto magazine. She spent the rest of her career at The Globe and Mail, working as publishing reporter - winning a National Newspaper Award in 1992 for critical writing - deputy editor of the Comment section, and most recently as an arts reporter concentrating on cultural institutions.
"I wanted her to go back to arts reporting," Mr. GREENSPON said yesterday, "because of her connectedness to the arts community. She brought a lot of insight, knowledge and understanding to her work."
An author as well as a journalist, she produced two children's books. The Road to There, which won the $10,000 Norma Fleck Award for Canadian Children's Non-Fiction in 2004, related the history of cartography from early sailors mapping the world to modern scientists charting the galaxies. Praising the book's dynamic quality, jury members said they were "mesmerized by how beautifully [Ms. ROSS] wove together the stories."
Two years later, Ms. ROSS published a second children's book, You Can't Read This, a history of banned and silenced literature. In reviewing the book for The Globe, Deborah Ellis, herself a prize-winning author of children's books, wrote: "The history of books and writers is a tense, often bloody one, with poets forced by mad emperors to commit suicide and translators burned at the stake by religious leaders anxious to hold on to their power. By using examples of real people facing such torments, ROSS brings that history alive for us. This is no dry textbook. It is a primer for anyone wanting to act with courage and needing to know that those acts will come with a price."
In her final book, she switched to adult non-fiction by tackling an oral history of novelist, playwright and essayist Robertson Davies. She had almost completed a draft of Robertson Davies: A Portrait in Mosaic, when she was diagnosed with brain cancer the day after her 57th birthday in October, 2007.
"Raw courage is not what we associate with writing a book," her editor Douglas Gibson said yesterday. "Yet, what I saw as Val ROSS fought brain cancer to finish her book on Robertson Davies left me shaken. It was a privilege to make what she teasingly described as 'house calls' to help her see the book through the last editing stages, and to be able to assure her just last week that the book is very good," he said. "It is made up of many voices recalling Davies; but the strongest, most memorable voice throughout is Val's."
On Friday evening she collapsed and was taken to Saint_Joseph's Hospital. Her husband and three children gathered around her hospital bed and read some of her favourite poets aloud - E.E. Cummings, William Carlos Williams, John Donne, and Gerard Manley Hopkins. Ms. ROSS, despite slurred speech from the effects of her disease, was able to finish many of the stanzas by drawing upon her formidable memory. The next morning she was transferred to Saint Michael's Hospital, where that night she underwent neurosurgery to try to give her more time with her family. Her spirit was willing, but her heart gave out.
Valerie Jacqueline ROSS was born in Toronto on October 17, 1950. She died, surrounded by her family, early in the morning of February 17, 2008, at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto, a mere four months after having been diagnosed with brain cancer. She was 57. Ms. ROSS leaves her husband, Morton RITTS, her children, Max, Maddie and Zoe, her mother, Erma, her brother, Philip, and her extended family. There will be a celebration of her life on Saturday, February 23, at 3 p.m. at Massey College in Toronto.

ROSS, Gladys
21 August 1918 to 9 June 2008
Unexpectedly at Tillsonburg Hospital in her 90th year. Pre-deceased by her husband Ormond. Loving mother of David (Katherine SPENCER- ROSS) and devoted Grandma of Caroline and Andrew. Last survivor of the five McCormicks of Harrow, Ontario - Ruth, Gladys, John, Keith and Ralph. During her long and fulfilling life Gladys was everyone's friend. Her cheerful and caring nature brightened the day. A farm girl by birth she had a mischievous streak and captured Ormond's heart (and earned her father's temporary wrath) by slipping a pen pal note into a box of tomatoes destined for Toronto. Waiting for him to return from the war she worked as an executive secretary at General Motors, Windsor. They married in 1945, moving initially to St. Hyacinthe, Quebec and later to Halifax. Two years later, when he retired from the Navy, they settled in Weston and built a house together while she worked at Inglis. In 1956, David was adopted and life was never the same. A devoted mother, Gladys immersed herself in home and school activities and was renowned for hosting innumerable school Friends for meals and snacks. An entrepreneurial bent lay just below the surface and she established the Relique Boutique antique shop at Jane and Buttonwood, later renaming it Early Years and moving it to Jane and Bloor. Spending an extra hour with clients over a cup of tea was indicative of her ability to listen to others and drew in many new Friends and acquaintances. On Ormond's retirement in 1979 and the subsequent closing of their shop in 1984 they decided to move to Tillsonburg where they lived out their remaining years in their own home entertaining Friends and family. Special thanks to Mike and Fran, as well as Donna, Marion, Diane, Doctor DOCKX and the Community Care Access Centre and Canadian Red Cross caregivers, whose support and efforts made staying at home possible. Gladys will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched. There will be a memorial service at Ostrander's Funeral Home, 43 Bidwell Street, Tillsonburg (519) 842-5221 at 11: 00 a.m. Monday 16 June, 2008. Rev. Maurice FRANCIS officiating. Private interment of ashes at Colchester, Essex County, will be at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations (payable by cheque) may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital would be appreciated. Personal condolence may be made at www.ostrandersfuneralhome.com

ROSS, Claire Isabel (née REID)
Died June 17th in Kingston, Ontario where her devoted daughter Cindy ensured that her final years were made comfortable. Claire was the loving daughter of Harold and Clara (SUTTON) REID of Montreal. When Claire grew up in Quebec higher education was a luxury only the affluent could afford. She was sent to secretarial school and then to work at an early age. However, this did not deter her from reading widely, developing a love of poetry, and learning everything she could. Indeed, Claire was a quick and able student who easily mastered anything she set about to learn, whether it was playing bridge, dancing, or learning to speak French. Later, her children came to depend upon her ability and strength of character. They rightly felt that she could do anything - and do it with loving kindness and grace. She could make clothes, hats, upholstery, draperies, pottery, all with her characteristic beauty and elegance. Lucky recipients treasured her hand knit sweaters as one of a kind works of art. Claire was an exceptional and sophisticated cook, who also had flawless taste in interior decorating; she could turn an ordinary room into a beautiful, cozy oasis. Although Claire had a quick and lively wit, she never criticized people or said an unkind word about anyone. She was always cheerful and loved fun as she made everyone feel happy and welcome while she provided endless hospitality. Her husband, Ralph, who died in 1969, often said that the luckiest day of his life was the day he met Claire. She is survived by her three adoring children, Deborah CAMPBELL (David) Fredericton, New Brunswick, Cynthia McKEGNEY (Brian) Sydenham, Ontario, and Ian ROSS (Cheryl) Toronto, and her five beloved grandchildren, Kate and Neal McKEGNEY, Ross CAMPBELL, and Madeleine and Evan ROSS. Also surviving are her three sisters, Mabel ADRIAN, Jessie REESE and Shirley RAMSAY for whom she was a loving sister. She also helped raise two step-daughters, Ruth LEVY and the late Mary KELTON, who were grateful for her compassion and generosity. She was the brilliant, shining light of our lives and we treasure her memory. In keeping with Claire's wishes, cremation will be followed by a private family service. In lieu of donations, please do something kind for someone today in memory of Claire.

She turned the Gardiner Museum into a glittering, priceless gem
With the help of her wealthy stockbroker husband, she transformed a hobby into a great ceramics collection, and then built a museum to house it all opposite Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S10
Museum founder and philanthropist Helen GARDINER had three lives: before George, during George, and after George. The George was George Ryerson GARDINER, a business integrator, Harvard MBA and stockbroker who founded Gardiner Group Capital, the country's first discount brokerage, and was president of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Generally considered a business genius, he was a pioneer in the oil-and-gas business, opened the first airport hotel in Canada, was a key player in bringing Kentucky Fried Chicken north of the 49th parallel, established Gardiner Farms, the racing stable and breeding farm, and was one of the original members of the syndicate that owned Northern Dancer. "He didn't start with nothing," a former business associate said, "but he multiplied it many times over."
Ms. GARDINER, by contrast, came from humble circumstances, and was a single parent working as a secretary in Mr. GARDINER's brokerage firm when they met. With Mr. GARDINER's support, she became a mature student at York University and took the decorative arts course at Christie's in London, England. Having acquired professional expertise - her impeccable eye for quality was innate - she and her husband amassed a huge and very valuable collection of porcelain and earthenware, then built a museum to house it.
Nevertheless, he was always the public face and voice of the Gardiner Museum. After Mr. GARDINER died in December, 1997, she emerged as a fundraiser, philanthropist and connoisseur who transformed the Gardiner from a mausoleum for a private collection into a dynamic, innovative and internationally prized museum. She also developed her own interests in the National Ballet School and other art forms such as opera, becoming so fond of Wagner's Ring Cycle that she was known as a "Ring" addict.
"The Gardiner Museum was her No. 1 passion, but the National Ballet School was a close second," said Margaret McCain, former chair of the board of the National Ballet School and former lieutenant-governor of New Brunswick.
"Helen had moral integrity and she also had a lot of fortitude," said Ms. McCain, describing her friend as fun with a wonderful laugh and a complete lack of pretension. "She was grounded and she was able to hold on to her own identity even if she was in George's shadow for a long time. There was a strength there and I used to say, 'You are your own person, kind and gentle, but strong inside.' "
Tony ARRELL, a former Chief Executive Officer of Gardiner Watson and a director of Gardiner Group Capital said: "When you have a tree growing under a big tree, the big tree shades the little tree, but when you take the big tree out, the little tree can grow up - and that is what has been happening with Helen. She has proven to be a stronger character with a greater ability than many people thought," he said. "There has been a lot more to Helen GARDINER in the last 10 years than we ever knew before."
Helen Elizabeth McMINN was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, the year before the Second World War began. Her father Charles was a carpenter at one of the gold mines, while her mother Helen was a homemaker. The McMinns moved south to Toronto, where Mr. McMINN worked for General Electric at its Davenport Works until he retired. Their two children, Helen and Bob, went to high school in Toronto, and then Bob joined the military. Helen's daughter Lindy BARROW, who was born in 1958, lived with her grandparents until she was 10 while Ms. McMINN, a single parent, worked at various jobs in advertising and as a legal secretary to support her daughter and save enough money to provide a home for them both.
In the second half of the 1960s, she met George GARDINER when she was hired as a secretary at Gardiner Watson, the stock brokerage that he and a partner had founded just after the Second World War. At the time, she was in her late 20s and Mr. GARDINER (who was known to enjoy, discreetly, the company of beautiful women) was in his early 50s, married and the father of three children. Not long before, in July, 1965, his formidable father Percy, a financier, had died of a heart attack. This death may have liberated Mr. GARDINER, who had had a fractious relationship with his father and had always felt the need to show that he could be even more successful in business.
"He once said that Helen was the first person that he laid eyes on as he was coming out from under this oppression that he had been under for so many years," according to Gretchen ROSS, a long-time friend. Their relationship led to the breakup of Mr. GARDINER's marriage.
In the mid-1970s, they moved into a house on Old Forest Hill Road in Toronto. He bought the property, razed the existing house and built a new one with lead-lined walls - he had acute hearing and didn't want to be disturbed by the neighbours. Mr. GARDINER and his first wife had bought some pre-Colombian earthenware in South America, and he decided that he and Ms. McMINN should "collect something unique to make our house look lived in," she said later. He wanted it to have "quality, individuality and his personal stamp." Naively, as she later admitted, they hit on ceramics.
Two years later, inflation was escalating. Mr. GARDINER, an astute and thrifty businessman, read an article asserting that Chinese and European porcelain were outperforming stocks, bonds and real estate, and he decided it was time to turn their hobby into an investment. Helen, who had been studying as a mature student at York University since 1974, switched tacks and went to London in 1978 to take Christie's Fine Arts Course. A year later, she was both an expert and a qualified dealer who could buy ceramics at wholesale prices.
Their first mature purchase was a hand-painted, highly decorated yellow tea-and-chocolate service made in 1740 by Meissen, the earliest factory in Europe to produce hard-paste porcelain. On the advice of a Sotheby's porcelain expert, Helen had gone to see the 50-piece set, complete with its original leather travelling case, at Winifred Williams Antiques on Bury Street in London. She persuaded Mr. GARDINER to look at the Meissen service and to meet dealer Robert Williams. Without telling her, he bought the service. And so the Gardiners began their long association with Mr. Williams and transformed themselves into serious collectors. As she said later, "Bob taught me how to really look at things. He was generous with his knowledge and showed me how to identify artists and factories by the distinctive characteristics of their work."
From Meissen, the couple began accumulating works made by Du Paquier, the second factory in Europe to produce hard-paste porcelain in the 18th century, and pieces called Hausmaler, a term used to describe ceramics decorated by studio artists who painted or redecorated porcelain produced by factories such as Meissen or Du Paquier. As always, they kept a judicious eye on their passions and their bottom line, collecting Du Paquier because it was undervalued, and Hausmaler for its variety, eccentric charm and the stories about subterfuge, espionage and larceny swirling around the pieces - how artists "acquired" undecorated wares from the studios that employed them and then painted them with their own designs.
During her Christie's course in London, Helen was seduced by the lush sensual colours and painterly decoration of Italian Maiolica. She took Mr. GARDINER to see the Maiolica collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington and he too was entranced. Encouraged by a lull in the market for Maiolica, Mr. GARDINER began buying at auction or through their retinue of international dealers.
By the early 1980s, the Gardiners - they had married on July 11, 1981, at least a dozen years after they first met - were running out of display and storage room in their home. With the help of entertainment lawyer and ceramics collector Aaron MILRAD, the determined and persuasive Mr. GARDINER set about acquiring the land and the political approvals to establish his own museum. In 1981, the Ontario government, led by premier Bill Davis, unanimously passed Bill 183 to create The George R. Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art as an independent, public institution. Doctor Murray Ross helped the Gardiners acquire a tennis court on the east side of Queen's Park, directly opposite the Royal Ontario Museum, from the University of Toronto. Mr. GARDINER paid $500,000 to lease the land for 99 years.
Three years later, architect Keith WAGLAND and designer Robert MEIKELJOHN's $6-million building was ready. The George R. Gardiner Museum, showcasing some 3,000 objets valued at between $16-million and $25-million from the Gardiners' personal collection, officially opened on Saturday, March 3, 1984, with an additional $2.5-million operating grant from its benefactors to celebrate the occasion.
Initially, the Gardiners were as naive about operating a museum as they had been about ceramics. They didn't have nearly enough staff, went through three directors in their first year and underestimated their operating and exhibition costs. After unsuccessfully petitioning the Liberal provincial government for more money, the museum was advised by premier David Peterson to merge with the Royal Ontario Museum in 1987. "I have learned it is very, very difficult to compete with other museums," Mr. GARDINER, a man known for his independence, said at an emotional press conference called to announce the merger.
"The government decided we needed the Royal Ontario Museum's management expertise," Ms. GARDINER told The Globe in 2006. But it wasn't always a comfortable relationship. For an independent museum to be put under the control of another much larger one was akin to an adult daughter moving back into her parents' house with her children after a messy divorce.
The Royal Ontario Museum saw the Gardiner as an adjunct, housing yet another of its many collections, but the Gardiner longed to flex its curatorial wings. Mr. GARDINER, who was succeeded as chair of the board by his wife in 1994, bought back the museum's independence with a $15-million endowment (raising his investment in his own museum to about $50-million). It was announced in January, 1997, just 11 months before Mr. GARDINER died of complications from arthritis and heart disease.
The strain of caring for her husband in his last years when he was ill and "difficult" and dealing with his estate after his death made her so nervous that her throat muscles tightened up and she had trouble speaking above a whisper, Ms. Ross said. It was only recently that doctors found a solution - periodic shots of Botox and a regime of throat exercises - that enabled Ms. GARDINER to speak normally again.
In the decade of her widowhood, Ms. GARDINER threw herself into the museum and into the National Ballet School, where she had sat on the board since 1990. "She invested a lot more than money - she invested herself in the life of the school and the lives of the students," said Ms. McCain. "She took on a student and stayed with that student and became a mentor and a guide and a friend."
Under Ms. GARDINER's direction, the museum built up its membership lists again and stretched beyond the personal vision of its founders. The Gardiner began accepting other collections, such as Doctor Hans Syz's German porcelain and Murray and Ann Bell's trove of Chinese blue-and-white porcelain. It expanded its mandate to include modern and contemporary pieces from collectors, such as Mr. MILRAD, and began organizing exhibitions of work by living artists.
Ms. GARDINER was chair until 1999 and vice-chair for the next two years, during which time the museum received a Lieutenant-Governor's Award for the Arts for building private sector and community support, showing fiscal responsibility and expanding its audience (from 20,000 to 60,000 visitors annually), using pottery classes for children and exhibitions such as Maya Universe, Miro: Playing with Fire and Harlequin Unmasked. In 2002, she accepted the position of honorary chair and led the museum's fundraising and expansion campaign to raise $12.8-million from the private sector, in addition to $6-million in grants from the Ontario and Canadian governments.
The museum closed from 2004 to 2006 for a nearly $20-million renovation undertaken by Kuwabara, Payne, McKenna and Blumberg Architects. The renovation added a glass-encased third floor, restaurant and roof terraces, increased exhibition space by 50 per cent, added a research library and expanded the museum shop and the basement studio to accommodate artists in residence and more pottery classes.
"In the last 10 years, she started to develop her own interests and her own ability to reach out for things that she would never have looked at before. And then she got sick," said Mr. MILRAD, vice-chair of the board. "She had an integrity that was recognized and it is going to be extremely difficult for us to raise the kind of money that she was able to raise through her contacts and her own strength of character."
Falling terminally ill was a shock to Ms. GARDINER, who had always planned to live well into her 90s, just as her mother has done. In the first week of May, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After seeking treatment at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Ms. GARDINER began a rigorous course of chemotherapy. But she soon decided to suspend treatment, since it wasn't working and it was making her feel very ill. Instead, she let "nature take its course," as she told her Friends and family.
Helen Elizabeth GARDINER, C.M., was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, on July 18, 1938. She died of pancreatic cancer at the family farm in Caledon East on July 22, 2008. She was 70. Predeceased by husband George GARDINER, she is survived by daughter Lindy BARROW, mother Helen McMINN, brother Bob McMINN and extended family.
The funeral will take place on Monday, July 28, at 11 a.m. in Toronto's Saint_James Cathedral.
