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.

SIM, Gordon Edward Royal
(October 4, 1952-March 9, 2008)
Our dear friend Gord passed away peacefully, at home, during his Sunday afternoon nap after a long, courageous and dignified fight against cancer. He was triumphant in the face of inevitable defeat for he valued Friendship above all else, and the value of his Friendships was never more unassailable than at his life's end. Kind, loving, fun, surprising, honest, dedicated, dependable, all those wonderful qualities bundled into one great person. Predeceased by his father and mother, Clarence and Dorothy SIM and nephew Richard REID. He is survived by his sister Patricia REID (Don,) nephew Rod REID (Heather) and their children Parker and Brooklyn; Uncle and Aunt, Ted and Celia GRIGG, cousins Janine LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH (Peter), Kenneth GRIGG (Sue) and Catherine FREIVOKH and their families, and his godchildren: Morgan McCONVILLE, Scott TINDLE, Willie SCOTT, Peter SEHMER, and Taylor JACKSON. Gord had an incredible circle of Friends from every spectrum of his rich life, but in particular his family would like to thank his oldest Friends for their support and care in the last year: John and Mary McCONVILLE, Blake and Dorie POTTINGER, Maud KILLAM, Cathy NOEL, Margaret ROBINSON, Robyn WOODWARD, and Peter ARMSTRONG. The support and love Gord has had from his many Friends in the class of 1970 at St. George's, colleagues from his years in federal politics, and from Friends at Rocky Mountaineer Vacations has been much appreciated. We would also like to thank Doctor John Sehmer, and the physicians and staff of the British Columbia Cancer Agency. Gord's political career began with the Young Conservatives of Canada. He graduated from University of British Columbia - Class of 1974 and worked for many years for the Hon. John Fraser, P.C., O.C., OBC, Q.C. in Ottawa and Vancouver before joining the Rocky Mountaineer Vacations as a train manager for the last 14 years. Gord served on the boards of numerous community organizations and was a life long participant in the campaigns of many civic, provincial and federal candidates. Gord looked as great decked out in his kilt for the Sir John A. MacDonald Society as he did riding with Friends at Douglas Lake. A bit of a George Hamilton, our Gord liked to tan year round either in some exotic local or on the sunny shores of Savary and Gambier Islands. He enjoyed traveling, watching the Canucks, celebrating the achievements of loved ones, and cooking dinner for Friends. He has left us with amazing memories. 'How wonderful life is when you're in the world' surely was written for our Gord. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Gord's memory to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation. A service in memory of Gord will be held at Saint Mary's Anglican Church at 2490 W. 37th in Vancouver on March 25, 2008 at 3: 00 p.m.
