Beloved poet, prof, playwright 'an artistic giant'
James REANEY, 1926-2008
By Katherina DEHAAS and Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Thurs., June 12, James REANEY, a national literary icon who stayed close to his Southwestern Ontario roots during a celebrated, 50-year career as a playwright, poet and professor, has died.
The longtime Londoner died last night in London following a long illness. He was 81.
"It was a peaceful end to a great life," his son, Free Press journalist James REANEY, said. "We know that he will be remembered and his contributions to Canadian culture will be valued."
Born on a Stratford-area farm in 1926, REANEY was an acclaimed poet, playwright, author, opera librettist and University of Western Ontario English professor.
He won three Governor-General's Awards for poetry and drama, and a 1974 Chalmers Award for best Canadian play.
"He was so great," said Nancy POOLE, a former Museum London director who met REANEY at University of Western Ontario.
"He was a gentleman, an intellectual, an artistic giant in the Canadian scene."
REANEY won his first Governor-General's Award in 1949 at age 23 for a collection of poetry, The Red Heart.
In 1960, he began teaching at University of Western Ontario and started publishing Alphabet, a semi-annual periodical devoted "to the iconography of the imagination."
In 1966, he founded the Listener's Workshop and began working with child and adult actors in choral ensemble works. REANEY, whose play Colours in the Dark premiered in Stratford in 1967, received the Order of Canada in 1975.
His best known dramatic work may be a trilogy of plays about the 1880 massacre of the Donnelly family in Lucan.
He was 10 when his stepfather told him the stirring story, stoking in REANEY an interest that would lead him to write the three plays that not only dramatized the legend, but arguably also brought it into focus historically.
The trilogy is among a handful of Canadian works listed among the 1,000 most significant plays of all time by the Oxford Dictionary of Plays.
He was also an amateur painter and pianist whose works were exhibited in London and Toronto.
REANEY enjoyed such respect that even small details of his life inspired artisans, says Martha HENRY, former Grand Theatre artistic director.
HENRY, who acted in two REANEY plays, recalled a tour last summer of his boyhood home.
"It was amazing," she said. "We went up into the attic where he used to write. He's an icon. A complete original."
REANEY is survived by his wife, son and daughter, two granddaughters and two siblings.

ALLEY, Brenton Glanville
It is with great sadness we announce the death of Sidney resident, Brenton G. ALLEY. He passed away peacefully in Hospice at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital on Monday March 31, 2008, surrounded by his loving family. The third son of Brenton Pascoe and Norma Lindsay ALLEY, he was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba October 16, 1922. He grew up in Toronto where he graduated from Upper Canada College. He joined the army in 1941 and after World War 2, he married Inez Jean POOLE, of Edmonton, Alberta, who he met while she was in nursing training in Montreal. They moved to the West Coast and Brent began working for the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Vancouver. He was transferred to Victoria where he and his family lived for eleven years, and then back to Vancouver where he continued to work for the bank. During his free time, he loved to golf at the Capilano Golf Club, to ski with his family at Whistler, and to sail near Horseshoe Bay. When he retired in 1982, he and his wife, Inez, left West Vancouver and moved to Deep Cove where Brent fulfilled a dream of designing their house, which was then built on Chalet Road. They recently moved to Sidney, as he said, 'exchanging sunsets in the country for sunrises in town'. A man of many interests and possessing an insatiable curiosity, Brent travelled extensively with his wife Inez, while he could, and he participated in community and educational opportunities as time allowed. He loved to garden and enjoyed going to the theatre, and especially loved being involved with his large extended family. We remember him as a principled, generous man with a marvellous sense of humour that remained even into his final days. The family is very grateful for the wonderful care he was given by the medical and nursing staff at both the Saanich Peninsula and the Royal Jubilee Hospitals. Brent was also appreciated for his volunteer work with the United Way in West Vancouver, and the British Columbia Cancer society in Sidney. He also enjoyed his involvement with the Friends of Dunsmuir Lodge, and being part of the SAGE Study Group. He is fondly remembered by his daughter Lindsay (Hogue) of California, son, Brent, of Vancouver, and son, Andrew, of Victoria; his 8 grandchildren and new great-grand_son; and his many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brothers, Jack, of West Vancouver, and Patrick, of North Vancouver. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, April 17th at 2: 00 p.m. at the Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church, 9296 East Saanich Road, Sidney. A reception will follow in the church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations could be made to the charity of your choice or the Mt. Newton Centre Society, Private Family Fund.

McDONALD, William Leonard (1919-2008)
On June 15, 2008, Len McDONALD died at Columbia Forest Long Term Care Centre in Waterloo, peacefully, with his wife Isabel present. Len seemed destined to be an Anglican clergyman, like many in his family. But after he flew Spitfires for the Royal Canadian Air Force in World War 2, he chose to be a professional engineer, working first on the Avro Arrow project. He later worked at the Chalk River Nuclear Labs, then as a bush pilot, and finally at a paper mill in Kapuskasing. In 1943, he married Barbara SCOTT of Toronto; after the War, they raised four children: Bill, Peter (deceased), Mary, and Patrick. Through them, Len has seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. In 1976, he married Isabel (POOLTON) DONNAN, acquiring four more children, Tim, Derek, Wendy, and David, and eventually six more grandchildren. In 1984, they retired to Waterloo to be nearer to their children. Len was a man of high standards, a calculated risk-taker, a music-lover, and a handyman. He had 32 wonderful years with Isabel, enjoying their children and grandchildren and their many Friends, summering at Parry Sound, square dancing, playing bridge, and travelling. He will be especially missed by Isabel, who loved him deeply. The family sincerely thanks Columbia Forest, whose skilled staff gave Len so much kind care. Friends and family will be welcomed to a visitation 7: 00-9:00 p.m. on Friday June 20, at Erb and Good Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo. A memorial service and reception will be held at 2: 00 p.m. on Saturday, June 21, at Holy Saviour Anglican Church, 33 Allen St. E., Waterloo, which Len and Isabel attended for many years. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in Len's memory to the Memorial Fund at Holy Saviour Church, or your favourite charity.
