JUDGE, Shirley Ann (née HIBBERD)
Social worker, feminist, professor, partner, lover of books, gardens and road trips. Born September 22, 1938, in Surrey, England. Died February 4 in Ottawa of colon cancer, aged 69.
By Helen LEVINE and Donna JOHNSON, Page L6
In many ways, Shirley JUDGE came at the world in an old-fashioned British way. She was independent, courageous and outspoken, but had a certain personal reserve.
Born Shirley Ann HIBBERD, she was the responsible eldest of four girls raised in wartime England. Her earliest memories were of food rations, victory gardens, billeted Canadian soldiers and hiding in the "bomb shelter" under the stairs when air-raid sirens sounded.
A top-flight high-school student who dreamed of studying history at Oxford, Shirley was streamed into social work at the University of Bristol, a course of study "befitting a woman." Her first job was in a mining community. By age 23 she was co-ordinating adoptions for an entire county.
Shirley married in 1963, immigrating with her husband to Ottawa, where she worked in child welfare at the Children's Aid Society. The marriage ended after seven years. Shirley formed an enduring bond with Henry HOMONICK.
She became a highly respected psychiatric social worker at Ottawa's Queensway Carleton Hospital. When the head of her department died suddenly and a less-qualified male colleague was appointed as interim director, Shirley resigned in protest.
She joined the faculty of Carleton University's school of social work, teaching and organizing the graduate field placement program. The school's structural feminist approach fit with her convictions about social justice and women's equality. On the side she ran a small counselling practice and acted on the boards of various women's organizations.
Shirley had a lifelong love of learning. She earned a pilot's licence, was an expert gardener, took courses in retirement, belonged to a book club, and travelled. She was a member of a feminist "envisioning" group - nine women who met regularly for potluck suppers and discussions both personal and political.
She met her terminal diagnosis with true British grit and humour. She wanted full information and choices, including the option to die with dignity. In the end she fought to stay alive, for in spite of chemo, pain and loss of energy, Shirley found riches and meaning in the last year of her life. Dying was a kind of intense road trip in a foreign land, and she lived it fully, opening up about her fears, joys and hopes in a way she had never done before.
Her final project was audiotaping her experience of dying for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. At meetings, at parties, at chemo sessions or alone in the middle of a sleepless night, the tape recorder came out. Shirley loved having a project that challenged her and gave a sense of purpose to her dying.
Helen LEVINE and Donna JOHNSON are Shirley's Friends.
