George MOTTRAM guided by his strong Catholic faith
By Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Sun., February 3, 2008
If there was one thing that guided George Edward MOTTRAM's life, it would be his Catholic faith.
Whether he was administering eucharist at his long-time church or negotiating costs with bus companies for the Catholic school board, MOTTRAM always treated others with the respect he'd like to be given.
"That was the key to George -- his Catholic faith," said Ken REGAN, former education director of the London Middlesex Catholic school board.
MOTTRAM died January 25 at age 83.
He was one of the first people who welcomed Regan into the school board in 1967 when he took over after Monsignor J.A. FEENEY retired. That moment sparked a Friendship that would last more than 30 years.
MOTTRAM was one of four people in the administration office at the time. He began working there a decade earlier, straight out of high school, when FEENEY asked him to join the board.
As the planning and transportation officer for the board, it was MOTTRAM's responsibility to seek sites where new Catholic schools could be built, plan bus routes for students and negotiate costs with school bus companies.
His responsibilities were heavy at the time, considering Catholic boards had fewer dollars from the province to work with and nearly half the board's students depended on busing. Gentle but effective, MOTTRAM always impressed his colleagues with his ability to negotiate low prices.
"The other boards were jealous at what he could do," REGAN said.
They were daunting tasks, but MOTTRAM made them look easy.
"I never saw the man angry. I'm sure he was at times, but he never showed it," said REGAN. "He was always calm and respectful."
MOTTRAM was also a board member at the Monsignor Feeney Foundation, a secretary of the ecumenical commission of the diocese of London and a past-president of the Irish Benevolent Society.
"He never knew how to say no," said John FERRIS, the board chair, who knew MOTTRAM for more than 50 years.
An active member of Saint Mary's Roman Catholic church and later Holy Family, every year MOTTRAM would comment on live radio during the broadcast of midnight mass at Saint Peter's Basilica.
In 1992, MOTTRAM was named to the mayor's Honour List. Eight years later, he organized a faith-based celebration that drew thousands to London from various religions.
MOTTRAM was notorious for forever running late -- because he would always stop to chat with people, FERRIS said. "He was the closest thing to a perfect gentleman I have ever met in my life."
MOTTRAM is survived by his wife Rita, four children and a grandchild.

Teacher devoted to children
Kay McLAUGHLIN saw her career as an 'investment' in children.
By Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Mon., March 3, 2008
Wilma DE ROND credits her Grade 8 teacher Kay McLAUGHLIN with helping her through a difficult time.
"She was the first female teacher I had since my mother passed away," said DE ROND, education director of the London District Catholic school board. "I had already gone through a lot of change.
"She was just a steady hand and that's what I needed," DE ROND said.
McLAUGHLIN, whose career in education inspired others to follow, died February 24 She was 92.
Her daughter, Kathy FRAUMENI, is a school principal. Granddaughter Kate VAUTHIER teaches and Mary Kate FRAUMENI, another granddaughter, aspires to teach.
An elementary teacher in the Catholic system, then a three-time trustee on the board that preceded the London District Catholic school board, McLAUGHLIN's life revolved around children, those who knew her said.
She trained to become a teacher in Saint John, N.B., where she was born in 1916.
She met her future husband, Maurice, at a skating rink one frosty day while a student and the couple later kept in touch.
They married in 1940 and and raised five daughters and a son. The young family moved frequently with each job transfer Maurice had while dealing trucks and farm equipment.
"We were a close family because we moved together," recalled her daughter Patricia McLAUGHLIN of London.
They settled in London in 1967 where Kay McLAUGHLIN taught at Notre Dame, St. Paul and Saint Anne schools.
When she retired at 65, McLAUGHLIN decided to run for the school board. She ran three times, all successfully.
In 1982, in her third run, she told The Free Press her plan was to "protect my investment in the children."
Her experience as a teacher and a mother paid dividends later, recalled former board education director Ken REGAN.
"She brought all of those perspectives to the board. They were terrific bits of information," he said.
Seldom seen without a hat, McLAUGHLIN's wit was sharp, her manners impeccable and her arguments almost always pointed, said Regan.
"She certainly added some decorum to our deliberations," said trustee John FERRIS, now the board's chairperson.
McLAUGHLIN encouraged parents and teachers to take part in public meetings and have their voices heard in a boardroom where they often felt intimidated.
McLAUGHLIN's presence was also felt at her parish, now Holy Cross, where she was president of the Catholic Woman's League and a key fundraiser. Among her projects was an annual bake sale, begun 30 years ago, to repair public works in South America.
The fundraiser continues to this day and has raised "tens of thousands" of dollars, Patricia McLAUGHLIN said.
