Mary Amelia Fowler ATKINSON
By Bob ATKINSON Thursday, August 28, 2003 - Page A20
Wife, mother of 12, grandmother of 23 and great-grandmother of seven. Born May 9, 1913, in Joggins, Nova Scotia Died January 20 in Saint Mary's, Ontario, of a stroke, aged 89.
Constancy is the word that best describes Mom. The namesake of Amelia Earhart, she was the youngest daughter of immigrants from Scotland, James FOWLER and Amelia Christine McCORMICK.
Mom shared many memories of life along Nova Scotia's Gold Coast. "The warmest water north of Florida," she used to say. And she was always fascinated by the power of the Fundy tides. Her Dad managed a coal mine in Joggins and her mother cared for a family of six. As a child, Mom excelled at school, eventually ending up at a local business school where she graduated at the top of her class.
She married Harold (Pat) ATKINSON from Amherst in 1936. Getting married and living during the Depression had a profound influence on Mom. She learned how to do without and I think she instilled a bit of that in all of us. Mom and Dad eventually left the east coast and moved to Hamilton, Ontario During the early years, they moved around... 11 times in seven years. They lived in Hamilton, Galt, Jackson, Michigan -- eventually settling down in Saint Mary's in 1952. Mom loved Saint Mary's and the big house on Widder Street. Ours was always the home where the neighbourhood kids found refuge if they needed a bandage for a scraped knee or relief from the weather. Our home was always full of kids! In spite of the challenges running a household with 12 kids (six boys, six girls), Mom still found time for others. She would often take time to fix our old clothes and give them to folk in the town who needed them.
Mom was the single most interesting person I ever knew. She would debate anyone on any subject -- politics, business, religion. I think this is best seen in the personalities that Mom read and listened to: Mordecai Richler, Robbie Burns, Stephen Leacock, Ogden Nash, Barbara Amiel, Diane Francis, Barbara Frum, Rex Murphy, Gordon Sinclair, Jeffrey Simpson. All very bright, articulate people with strong convictions. She didn't always agree with them but she always listened... just as she took the time to listen to her children.
Mom had a natural curiosity and a real thirst for learning. Books were her window to the rest of the world. She always wanted to travel but her devotion to her kids kept her close to home. I think this devotion was best seen when her father died and Mom felt she should not leave us to travel home for Papa's funeral. When she had the rare opportunity to travel with Dad, she really enjoyed it.
After Dad died in 1997, we had talked about a trip to Scotland so Mom could visit the birthplace of her parents, but it never happened. Caring for Dad in his final years had taken its toll. She was completely devoted to her children and as she neared the end of her life, she feared that we would lose touch with each other. In Mom's will, she instructed us to exchange the family rings, in person, to the next child in line every year. In this way, Mom will continue to touch us. Her greatest joy was getting together with everyone -- she loved a party. But she never made you feel guilty if you couldn't make it home. She always understood.She never made you feel like she was owed something. Her impact on people's lives is best seen in the grandchildren who rarely missed an opportunity to drop in and visit with her.
She loved to watch hockey and baseball... but she loved radio most! She never took herself too seriously; had very quick wit and a great sense of humour. She loved to laugh. She taught us all not to take life too seriously, but she will always remain our constant: our touchstone.
Bob is one of Amelia's sons.
