RUTHERFORD o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-02-01 published
She entertained Toronto and the troops, carting her organ from stage to stage
Born to a talented family, she became a musical fixture in a growing city and beyond
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- As a classical organist, Dorothy BROMBY's performances were like a soundtrack for a maturing city in the 20th century. From her early days in cinemas, performing during intermission, to troop shows during the Second World War and rounding up prize-winning animals at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, her music bellowed in the eclectic corners of Toronto's entertainment industry for more than five decades.
Ms. BROMBY was the first female conductor at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, and at age 20, probably the youngest. She performed, produced and directed shows at the Winter Fair, the Royal Horse Show, the National Home Show, Ontario Place and Yorkdale Mall. With great dedication and care, she carted her Lowery Organ from stage to stage.
She also inspired others to succeed. David Rogers, one of Canada's leading musical theatre talents and former star of the Toronto production of The Phantom of the Opera, said Ms. BROMBY taught him how to be a professional.
"[She said] that it was a business that had to be taken seriously. She always commanded respect."
Dorothy BROMBY was born into a musical and entertaining family. When her father, Harold, was still in his teens, he was personal trumpeter to the Duke of Atholl in Aberdeen, Scotland. Later, in Canada, he served as bandmaster for the 116th Battalion during the First World War. When Dorothy was a child, it was not unusual for her to find veterans camped out on the living room floor, especially during the annual Warriors' Day Parade. She also had an uncle who played the xylophone, drums and zither at the Canadian National Exhibition grandstand for afternoon circus performances.
Dorothy's first public performance was as an elementary student in Toronto's west end. In those days, children were expected to quietly line up in front of the "girl" or "boy" entrance. Once her piano skills became known, she was expected to be at the keys twice a day to herd them through the proper doors. Her uncle, Walter, even wrote a special piece of music for her called the Western Avenue School March. By the time she was in high school, the organ was her favourite instrument. In 1941, she took a job playing at cinemas across Toronto, including the Odeon Carlton, the Humber and the Danforth Music Hall.
Around the same time, she started performing for the troops at Ontario military installations, including Camp Borden, Barryfield and Muskoka's "Little Norway" base.
"She was the youngest member of the musicians' union," said sister Bernice BOYD, "and our parents had to make sure the colonel in charge at each camp would look after her."
She often teamed up with Scottish comedian Billy Meek, who went on to a regular role on Pig and Whistle, the iconic Canadian television variety show. In addition to troop shows, Ms. BROMBY volunteered to play for wounded servicemen who were convalescing in Toronto.
In her teens, Ms. BROMBY summered in the Toronto Islands. (Her mother, Lily, had lived there when she first came to Canada from Belfast in the early 1920s.) The cottage lacked a piano until one day when her parents were bicycling at the Eastern Gap harbour entrance and spied a table grand in the sand. They borrowed a Toronto Transit Commission freight wagon and, with Friends, pulled it home.
"Our parents restored it as best they could," her sister said. "And this was where Dot did all her rehearsing. When we had parties, the piano was closed and used as a buffet table."
During the war, Ms. BROMBY did shows at the Royal York and King Edward hotels, performing with four other women in a group they called The Dorothy Bromby Singers. She wrote the music and played accompaniment on the organ, pressing the 40 stops to emit different sounds, including trumpets, strings and drums.
In 1946, she was hired as the musical conductor for Stop and Go, a variety revue at Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre that featured artists from wartime entertainment troupes: the Accordionettes, the Modernettes, Lay Kenny's Teenagers, the Rhythmteens and the Leslie Bell Singers.
John KARASTAMATIS, the theatre's current director of communications, noted how rare it was for women of this era to be allowed to conduct.
"Working in the home and 'slave labour' were pretty well the only jobs for women at that time," he said.
Ms. BROMBY married fellow Ward's Islander Jim SMYTHE in 1948. While overseas during the war, Mr. SMYTHE had fallen in love with a picture of her snapped by a mutual friend. He insisted on meeting her as soon as he was back in Toronto. Her reputation as a musician had also charmed him while he was away.
"I fell in love with Dorothy the moment I saw her," he said. "I married her in '48 and had 59 years of bliss. It was an island romance."
After the war, the Singers hit the road, this time taking four male performers along with them. They were hired by Chrysler and General Motors to do cross-Canada tours, putting on grand spectacles each time a new car was introduced. In 1955, Ms. BROMBY did a two-week run for GM, performing as many as five shows a day. It was an exhausting but manageable schedule, even though she had two children at home under the age of 5. The group also performed on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television during its early years in the 1960s, and Ms. BROMBY later played the organ on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation variety shows and dramas hosted by Monty Hall and Rick Campbell.
She performed as a solo instrumentalist at the Canadian pavilion in Montreal during Expo 67, mingling with other performers, including Maurice Chevalier, Marlene Dietrich and a fresh-faced Luciano Pavarotti. (Ms. BROMBY's son, Ron, also played the clarinet in his high school band at Expo).
Ms. BROMBY began working at the Winter Fair and Flower Show at the Canadian National Exhibition in the late 1960s, and remained there until she retired in 1995. It seemed as though she had found her niche and refused to abandon it. From this point on, she was surrounded by bouquets of flowers. Her dedication to the job was such that she once performed with a broken wrist. "They built a stand for her arm at keyboard height," said her son, "and the furriers covered her cast with a mink muff that matched the mink stole she wore."
After a few years at the flower show, Ms. BROMBY went on to work with the ring committee in the horse arena. Her talent as both performer and director were particularly noted, especially on the closing ceremonies.
Mr. Rogers recalls the early days of his career, following Ms. BROMBY in circles around the ring. "I remember her with her music in a binder, leading the troops with her singers and dancers behind. We'd follow her through the horses and cows [stalls], she in her fancy gown with her hair higher than anyone else's."
The ceremony consisted of a parade in the centre ring, showcasing Ms. BROMBY on the organ. (She also wrote the script.) There were award-winning horses festooned with flowers, colourful bushels of fruits and vegetables, sheep, cows, geese, chickens - for 26 years, she left nothing out.
"She brought the show business pizzazz," daughter Sandy RUTHERFORD said. "They asked her to come back, even up to two or three years ago… because it now lacks that extra flavour."
When the ring was full, the lights would go down - gradually, so as not to spook the animals - and the president of the fair would enter the gate. He'd circle the ring once or twice, sitting with his wife in a three-horse buggy, officially close the event, and exit to great applause.
During her retirement, Ms. BROMBY enjoyed spending time at the family's cottage in Haliburton, Ontario, and turning her musician's hands over to gourmet cooking.
Dorothy Bromby SMYTHE was born December 4, 1925, in Toronto. She died in Toronto on December 24, 2007, from cancer. She was 82. She is survived by husband, Jim, daughters Sandy RUTHERFORD and Pat BUIE and son, Rob BROMBY. She is also survived by her sister, Bernice BOYD, and eight grandchildren.

KERSELL, Marnie (née RUTHERFORD)
Marnie KERSELL was born on November 11, 1926. Her parents were Thomas Warriner RUTHERFORD and Rosalind Jane WITTON. Marnie had two sisters, Gay KIMPEL and Jane HANSULD. She grew up in a happy home on Lansdowne Rd. in Galt and met and fell in love with her future husband, George, at Galt Collegiate. They were married for 58 years and shared many interests and Friends. They were truly partners for life.
Marnie was loved, respected and admired by her three daughters, Mary, (Graham CALDWELL,) Jane (David SPARLING) and Ann (Paul RIDDELL, deceased.) She had a very close and warm relationship with her grandchildren, Anna and Scott Caldwell, Beth, Laura, Julie and Cam Sparling and Christine, Grace and Jimmy Riddell.
Her family recognized and appreciated Marnie's many talents and accomplishments. She was an extraordinary woman and, like so many women of her generation, she was a strong, independent thinker, a problem solver and a person who was never daunted by the task at hand.
She was a Phys. Ed. grad from the University of Toronto and was a talented athlete. She was an avid curler at the Galt Curling Club for many years and won the Ontario Mixed Curling Championship in 1962 and the Ladies' Tankard in 1965. Although she enjoyed all sports, golf was her passion. Over the years, she won 24 club championships both here, at the Galt Country Club, and in Florida. She was a member of the four person Ontario Senior Ladies' Team, which won the National Championship in Victoria in 1993. During her golfing career, Marnie had 9 holes-in-one, and shot her age three times. Marnie loved family time and especially enjoyed summers on Georgian Bay. She spent her youth cottaging at Pointe au Baril and later she, George and Gay and Doug KIMPEL built a cottage just up the shore on an island at Bayfield Inlet. Marnie never lost her enthusiasm for swimming, diving, canoeing, blueberrying and fishing. She and George also loved their winters in Florida and entertained many family members and Friends there over the years.
Marnie was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. She led a happy, fulfilled life. She died on June 19, 2008. It was very hard for us to let her go, and we will miss her greatly.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Epilepsy Ontario, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario or the charity of one's choice would be appreciated.
Memorial visitation will be held on Sunday, June 22, 2008 from 2-4 p.m. at Coutts Funeral Home, 96 St. Andrews Street, Cambridge.

LECHTZIER, Dorothy Beatrice (née HEARD)
Born November 29, 1927 to Albert and Kathleen HEARD, " Bette" grew up in Vancouver living the epitome of west coast life. She attended Lord Kitchener Elementary, Lord Byng High and then University of British Columbia where she joined the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and earned a B.A. (English).
Bette met Merton (LECHTZIER) at a Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club dance and, after converting to Judaism, married him on August 12, 1953 at Beth Israel Synagogue. The Tennis Club became a central part of their lives both for sport and Friends and they were active members there for over five decades. Mert and "Beebz" (as she was affectionately known) moved to Shaughnessy in 1955 and remained there for the next 40 years. They loved to travel and spent many wonderful holidays with Friends in exotic destinations. They were also great entertainers and hosts, and their home became the venue of all manner of parties over the decades.
Though Bette was part of the Doctor Spock generation, she was also a mother in the mould of Donna Reed. She was the purveyor of the most wonderful comfort food (as we now know it) and had an encyclopedic knowledge of how to make secondary meals out of an original source reflecting the thrift of her leaner years. She was also a resourceful epicurean, leaping at every opportunity to retrieve fresh delicacies from the country, blackberries from the lane or dandelion leaves from the shoulder of the highway.
Like Mert, Bette loved fashion but above that style. Her nose for a good sale was legendary and she had a wonderful ability to mix a modest wardrobe into something very chic. Bette was also strongly independent and, as her motherly responsibilities began to wane, pursued many projects on her own. To no one's surprise greater than her husband, Bette became both a shrewd investor and successful B&B proprietor.
Above all else, Bette was great fun; a hybrid personality of (I Love) Lucy, Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore and Marty Feldman. She was a wonderful friend and neighbour and the source of wild and wonderful antics and stories. Bette had an infectious laughter which could permeate a room in an instant. She was a great dancer (and loud singer), a wonderful raconteur, would mimic any person at the drop of a hat, and a boundless source of old English rhymes. She loved dark chocolate covered anything, liked to poke you in the ribs after a minimal of prodding, and thought Michael Caine, Gene Hackman and Gene Wilder were drop dead gorgeous (all of them strangely having coifs like her husband). She was always cold (especially the tip of her nose), could stick her tongue out in more directions than most reptiles, and was a little tornado of activity in the garden.
In the late 1990s, dementia took hold of Bette's personality, twisted it and slowly robbed us of her unique laughter and charm. However, even through this difficult period, Bette still managed on occasion to emit a little twinkle from her eye and a merry laugh to brighten a room. During often desperate years, Mert was a loyal and loving companion and caregiver of unlimited capacity who made any sacrifice for his beloved wife. Bette escaped her torment and let go of life on April 10th at the age of 80 in Vancouver. She has been, and will continue to be, sorely missed by many and is irreplaceable.
Bette was predeceased by her beloved husband Merton in December 2006 and is survived by her sister Sally MIDWINTER (James) of Ottawa her three children, Matthew of London (England), Paul (Jennifer DOLMAN) of Toronto, and Sally RUTLEDGE (Jeffrey) of Vancouver, as well as six grandchildren; Sam, Adam and Emma RUTLEDGE, and Harris, Sasha, and Abby LECHTZIER.
The family thanks Helen Combs for her loving care and devotion to both our parents over five difficult years. Donations to the Pacific Alzheimer's Research Foundation at www.parf.ca or 604-678-8138 are gratefully appreciated.
