KATES, Myra Louise
Wife, mother, grandmother, sister, baseball and theatre lover. Born October 30, 1931, in Toronto. Died March 8 in Toronto of an intestinal infection, aged 76.
By Sheila KIERAN, Page L6
On a warm May night 57 years ago, my 19-year-old "baby" sister and I were talking as she ironed a slip. We considered such questions as: What would married life be like? How did you know when you were in love? At least marriage would end my grandmother's yelling every evening, "Amy," her rendering of the name of Myra's fiancé, Mannie, "go home."
Myra and Mannie were married on May 24, 1951. They had three daughters: Sara, Eve and Rebecca. They opened a daycare centre and, although they lived close to the edge financially, all seemed well - until 1969, when Myra began to suffer from tingling in her hands and arms. It was diagnosed as a pinched nerve, but before long it became clear it was something much more serious: multiple sclerosis.
As the years went on, her symptoms worsened. But Myra was no victim. When she could no longer walk unassisted, she used a cane and later became knowledgeable about wheelchairs. When she could no longer do needlepoint, she played bridge - like a shark. When reading was no longer possible because she could not hold a book or turn pages, she followed her beloved Blue Jays on television. In winter, she learned to love the Raptors.
Every day Mannie cleaned, cooked and patiently fed Myra. When they went out, which they did with astonishing frequency, she was always smartly dressed and made up. She learned Yiddish and Hebrew. She stopped smoking but was not self-righteous about it. She sat on her condo board - a task that would have challenged the perfectly healthy - and frequently went to see concerts and live theatre.
Mannie made all of this possible, driving to the Berkshires in Massachusetts and to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, or simply to the nearby movie theatre. They enjoyed their five grand_sons and one granddaughter at large family dinners.
Myra became so dependent on Mannie that when he had cancer surgery in 2004, she had to go into a nursing home. Although they occasionally showed signs of their mutual frustration, neither complained of the dark turn their lives had taken.
By the beginning of this year, Myra was losing her eyesight and was in excruciating pain. She had been frequently hospitalized for infections and, at the beginning of March, she went into hospital again. She lost consciousness a few days later. On a Friday night at the beginning of March, she went to sleep and didn't awake, having "outsoared the shadow of our night."
Myra never could explain how, just a teenager, she was wise enough to choose as her mate a man who would care for her, tenderly and loyally, for more than 50 years.
Sheila KIERAN is Myra's sister.
