Steven TRUSCOTT's 'poor Mom' spent decades fighting on his behalf
The matriarch of a military family endured divorce and disappointment before seeing justice done
By Lisa FITTERMAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Doris Truscott BRENNAN would tell her children that when they were older, they'd look back on their youth and want to live it all over again. Childhood, she was wont to say, is the most precious and beautiful time of life.
"Poor Mom," her most famous son, Steven TRUSCOTT, once said to journalist Bill Trent. "How could she know that the soft, golden days of my childhood would one day come to an abrupt, tragic end and that she would be visiting me in a jail?"
Back in 1950s, Mrs. BRENNAN was known as Dot TRUSCOTT, a traditional air force wife and mother of four who spent her time cooking, cleaning, doing endless loads of laundry and ensuring that her boisterous offspring minded their manners. From the family's small clapboard house in Clinton, Ontario, she was the boss who tolerated no insubordination. Petite and plainspoken, it was her way to strike a balance between strictness and love.
In June, 1959, Mrs. BRENNAN was doing what she did every year: making plans for summer vacation and occasionally socializing with her husband, Dan, in the sergeants' mess. On June 10, everything began to unravel. That's when Leslie HARPER, the father of 12-year-old Lynne, showed up on the doorstep, saying he'd been told that one of the Truscott boys had seen her. She hadn't come home the night before. The family was frantic. Steven told him that he'd given her a lift on his bike to the corner and that she'd hitched a ride on the highway.
When Lynne's body was found in the nearby bush, investigators focused on the 14-year-old who seemed to have been the last person to see her alive. It was ridiculous, Mrs. BRENNAN knew. Her tall, handsome and shy second son, who excelled at track and field and liked to fish in his spare time, couldn't have committed the grisly crime he was accused of. How could the authorities, whom she'd always respected, pin this horror on him?
She would learn to fight back, grimly and with a singular sense of purpose. She fought through his arraignment and his trial, sitting behind him and whispering words of encouragement and testifying that with four active kids, she had to do laundry more than once a week and that a dirty pair of jeans was not exceptional.
She fought against the shocking sentence to hang by his neck until he was dead (later commuted to life in prison), and she fought all the way up to the Supreme Court of Canada to have the conviction overturned. She fought without help from the air force, even as her family moved from Clinton into a secondhand trailer in a park near the small-town Ontario jail where her son was first held. And throughout, she fought to keep her family together and to shield her other children from the trauma.
"She instilled in Steven the air force way: Keep your emotions in check, stand firm in the face of adversity and never back down," said investigative journalist Julian Sher, who chronicled the family's struggle in the book Until You Are Dead. "She was efficient, she was dedicated, she was a whirlwind and she was to be reckoned with."
Mrs. BRENNAN once told Mr. Sher that she had to draw on all of her military grit to survive. "I think being a serviceperson, you learn to accept things more and make do with what you have," she recalled. "Your world has turned completely around, but you push it to the back of your mind and you look ahead. Nothing more could happen that could be worse, so it's got to get better."
But it wouldn't get better, not for a long time.
Born Doris BOWERS, Mrs. BRENNAN was an air force child herself. Her father was an engineer and worked at one point on an air-sea rescue boat. Dan TRUSCOTT, whom she met in 1942, worked on that boat, too; he first came by the BOWERS home as a family friend but soon dropped all pretence as the relationship with Doris heated up. The couple married and had four children.
Along the way, they were stationed for various periods on bases near Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Quebec City and Rivers, Manitoba, where they lived in a shack with an outdoor toilet. It wasn't an easy life, but Mrs. BRENNAN had been ready all her life to take on the challenges of raising a family within the confines of the military. New schools and new Friends were par for the course.
Her son's arrest and what followed turned everything she knew on its head. After the trial, she worked at three part-time jobs, in a bakery, a grocery store and a cafeteria, to help keep the family afloat and to pay for gas for the monthly car trips to and from Collins Bay Penitentiary near Kingston, where Steven would serve the bulk of his sentence.
Mac STIENBURG, the Collins Bay chaplain who became a surrogate father to Mr. TRUSCOTT in prison and with whom the young man first lived when he was paroled, said the parents never let him see how scared and frustrated they were.
"They would spend time in the chapel and they'd pass on family tidbits, keeping him up to date," Mr. STIENBURG said. "They had very natural, newsy conversations. They never got into that 'poor you' or 'poor me' mindset."
The chaplain, now retired, said his most poignant memory of the mother and son was her visit in May, 1967, after they'd lost a Supreme Court bid to have the verdict overturned. After placing their faith in the ability of the judges to recognize the case as a circumstantial fiction, she was devastated, but Mr. STIENBURG said that didn't stop her driving out to the prison to speak to Mr. TRUSCOTT face to face.
"It was after-hours and because of the way it was happening, I was granted permission to monitor the visit," he recalled. "She did the exact right thing. She said, 'This isn't the end of it. We'll go on and see what we can do.' She was so strong and determined, sitting there in this cold visiting room, and I think Steve drew strength from her."
Indeed, Mrs. BRENNAN grasped at any chance to clear her son's name. When Isabel LeBourdais, a Toronto journalist, first wrote to the Truscotts to express her interest in writing a magazine exposé about why a 14-year-old would be tried as an adult and given the death penalty, the two women began to forge a Friendship made stronger by the fact that Ms. LeBourdais had a son only a little older than Mr. TRUSCOTT.
Ms. LeBourdais eventually decided that the story was one of wrongful conviction and too big to tell within the limited scope of a magazine. Instead, she wrote The Trial of Steven Truscott, a book she dedicated to Mrs. BRENNAN "with affection and profound respect."
"It really summed up their relationship," said the author's son, Julien LeBourdais. "They were two mothers with sons close in age and one of the things we always say to people is, 'I know how you feel.' But we don't really know. We can't know. You can only feel awe."
No matter how strong Mrs. BRENNAN was, the ordeal did take its toll. At one point, she took tranquilizers to get through the long days and even longer nights, while Mr. STIENBURG said she was disappointed by administrative decisions that her son must live under an assumed name when he was paroled and that he must live with the chaplain instead of coming home.
Her marriage to Dan TRUSCOTT unravelled while their son was in prison, a casualty of the pressure. Although she married again, the union didn't last and she spent her latter years living outside Ottawa near three of her children.
In an e-mail sent to supporters, Mr. TRUSCOTT's wife, Marlene, wrote that Mrs. BRENNAN was an inspiration to them all. Although the family declined to make any further comment, it seems clear she will be remembered as the fierce, stalwart mother who refused to give up on her son - the mother who, last summer, finally saw justice done when the Ontario Court of Appeal quashed the conviction, calling it a "miscarriage of justice."
She lived long enough to see it and for that, she was happy.
Doris (Dot) BRENNAN died at the Ottawa Heart Institute on December 17, 2007. She was 82. She is survived by children Ken (Lenora), Steven (Marlene), Bill (Carol) and Barb, and grandchildren David, Dwayne, Ryan, Leslie, Devon, Crystal and Tom.

Father of Stephen Reagh CHALMERS and his wife Judy of Owen Sound, Margo BLANCHE and her husband Peter NEUWELT of Barrie and Lesley Anne CHALMERS and her partner Colleen ANDERSON of Toronto. Very beloved Grandpa of Mark BAZANT and his wife Angie of Australia, the parents of his first Great-grandchild Liam, and of Michael BAZANT and his partner Genvieve of Ottawa. Predeceased by his parents David and Eva (REAGH) CHALMERS, sisters Vivien McMINN, Vera VALLANCE and brother Dave of Grand Coulee, Saskatchewan. He also lives on through his niece and nephew and their families Patsy Ann Reagh McMINN of Saint Thomas and Clarence VALLANCE of Ottawa. Don was born and raised in Grand Coulee, Saskatchewan, where his predecessors were among the first settlers of Saskatchewan, and also the founders of Confederation with his maternal great uncle - Sir Charles Tupper. He signed up for World War 2 in 1939 and was shipped overseas to England where he was promoted to Sandhurst College for Officer Training. After serving in England, Holland and Italy in World War 2 with the Canadian Army Medical Corp. and then the Armoured Tank Corp., Dad brought his war bride back home and settled in London, Ontario where he completed his Batchelor's Degree at the University of Western Ontario. He went on to a long and successful career with Wyeth Canada, where he set records for sales in Southwestern Ontario. His friendly nature and humour brought him many life long Friends and acquaintances throughout the Southwestern Ontario region. In the early fifties, Don and Jill settled in Owen Sound, where they raised their 3 children. He was proud of his long relationship with the Grey and Simcoe Foresters, Knox United Church, and the infamous Friday Night Bridge Club. We shall miss his western humor and his true love of people. Thanks you to Knox United Church, the Toronto Dominion Bank and especially Summit Place where he received exceptional care and compassion. We'd also like to make known our special appreciation to Big Boots Barry, his bridge partner and Border Collie when he needed it the most. Friends may call at the Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home on Saturday March 8, 2008 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Saturday at 5 p.m. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6 are requested to attend a memorial Service at the funeral home on Saturday March 8 at 2: 45 p.m. Interment in Greenwood Cemetery.

Rest easy Dad. And in your famous words - Ya done good kid!
