Ruth (FAITH) STANLEIGH
By Allan STANLEIGH, Monday, July 25, 2005, Page A14
Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister. Born September 6, 1920, in Toronto. Died March 31, of complications from Alzheimer's disease, aged 85.
Ruth FAITH was probably born in 1920. As she was delivered by midwife in the FAITH family's downtown Toronto home, there was no official birth registration. Ruth found herself in a crowded-yet-vibrant environment consisting of eight children, two parents and two grandparents. Living among many is a scenario she would recreate later in life.
The FAITHs lived according to many old-world traditions. On occasion, her grandfather would arrive home with live fish that would frolic in the bathtub overnight and then go on to the family dinner table.
Ruth displayed her mothering instincts early in life when her younger sister would wake her during the night because she had wet her bed. Ruth would change and wash the bed sheets before her parents awoke, protecting her sibling from embarrassment and parental wrath.
One afternoon on the way to her job as a cashier in her uncle's downtown Toronto movie theatre on Queen Street, she stopped to peer into the window of a shoe store. It was there that she met a dashing young shoe salesman, Richard STANLEIGH. After a torrid romance, the young couple eloped, a decision probably motivated by Ruth's pregnancy. Ruth was 18 years old. A few months before their first anniversary, they welcomed their firstborn, Stephen. By the fifth year of marriage, Ruth and Richard had created a family of four. Over the next 19 years, Ruth bore an astounding 13 children. When asked why she had so many, she replied, "I love children."
Help in running the household came in many forms. Richard did most of the food shopping. Ruth's expectations of the children fell along gender lines. She demanded that the girls clean up after dinner and stubbornly refused to allow the boys to participate in housework, even if they willingly volunteered. The boys did tasks such as garbage and snow removal.
The Stanleigh home was one of constant motion. The kids' Friends loved to visit, whispering in astonishment "There are so many children." Ruth was an expert in time-management and always found the time to do everything necessary to keep the household running. Her secret? "You just focus on one task at a time and then move on to the next."
We'd arrive home from school to find fresh baking waiting to be devoured. Ruth even volunteered at our public school and she never missed a piano recital. Both Ruth and Richard were forthright in supporting their children in school. Many a teacher or principal had to endure receiving from my mother, as she put it, "a piece of my mind."
Richard was in the men's wear business and kept the children well dressed with merchandise samples. The kids even modelled in catalogues and men's wear magazines. Ruth often accompanied him on business trips, gleaning sales experience that proved vital later in life.
In 1978, Richard died of heart complications. At 57 years old, Ruth had no financial resources, no formal education and three children still at home. It was not without considerable internal struggle that she parlayed her organizational and personable character skills into a travelling sales position. Each week, she visited a different Southern Ontario community, returning with delightful tales of the lives of the farmers and the small-town folk she met along the way.
The years of childbearing and family responsibility took its toll as osteoporosis and Alzheimer's commandeered her health. Ruth STANLEIGH has left a legacy of 11 surviving children, 20 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Allan is Ruth's son, the eighth-born.

Plane, glider crashes kill four in Ontario
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Transport safety officials and provincial police are investigating two separate air crashes that killed four people.
Two men died around 5 p.m. Saturday when the Cessna airplane they were flying in crashed near Sudbury.
The pilot, Jim NICHOL, 68, and a passenger, Charles BREAULT, 30, from the Temiskaming Shores area were pronounced dead at the scene.
The two men were filming a family gathering from the air when the small plane suddenly plummeted to the ground, provincial police said yesterday.
An hour earlier, a single glider plane crashed into a farmer's field near Tottenham, northwest of Toronto, claiming the lives of two men.
John STANLEY, 43, of Newmarket, and Felix PILORUSSO, 56, of Toronto were pronounced dead at hospital.
The glider left the Great Lakes Gliding Club and was in the air for about 20 to 30 minutes before crashing, police said.
Highway 11 was closed for about two hours during the investigation, police said.
Federal transport investigators were trying to determine the cause of the crashes, police said.

Ted and Eleanor have lived most of their retirement years in West Vancouver enjoying the views and seaside. They have been healthy and happy with many Friends here. Ted was a volunteer at West Vancouver Memorial Library, where he helped with the second-hand book sales, and often worked behind the scenes. He enjoyed writing for the library newsletter, and retired from that, weeks before he died. Ted will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by his family and Friends.

CATTERSON, Sylvia Roberta (DOERKSEN)
Sylvia was born on April 2, 1951 and passed away peacefully on November 4, 2005. She was predeceased by her parents, Robert and Sarah CATTERSON of Toronto, Ontario. Sylvia will be dearly missed by her partner for life, Rick STANLEY of Parksville, British Columbia. She also leaves to mourn, her brothers, Jim (Judy) CATTERSON of Westbank, British Columbia, Marshall (Daphne) CATTERSON of Nanaimo, British Columbia, her sisters, Jean (Bill) RIDD of Georgetown, Ontario and Carol (David) HACKER of Toronto, Ontario. Sylvia's passing is also a sad loss to her nieces and nephews, Marshall, Kevin, Bonnie, Sarah and Kathryn. There is a void in our home which is evident in how her cat, Patch and her dogs, Jasmine and Ushi, continue to wait for her return. Sylvia was lovingly active with her extended family and made numerous good Friends as she moved west across this country, having emigrated from Northern Ireland as a young girl. Sylvia was forever grateful to her special caregiver, her sister-in-law Connie BARBER of Hopkins Landing, British Columbia. Sylvia, you will be sorely missed as your body vanishes from our lives, but be comforted to know that your spirit lives on, and although we are all saddened by our loss, your sense of humour and love will forever be cherished.
A celebration of Sylvia's life was held on Saturday, November 12, 2005 at the Yates Funeral Service and Crematorium in Parksville, B.C.
If you wish, please make a donation to your local Hospice Society (www.chpca.net).
