JORDAN, Margaret May (formerly McGREGOR, née CROSBY)
Margaret May (CROSBY, McGREGOR) on the morn of February 8, 2005, of Saint Thomas, at the Palliative Care Unit in her 84th year. Beloved wife of James Kenneth McGREGOR (1946) and Harold Henry Stephen JORDAN (1989) and loved mother of Elaine McGREGOR- MORRIS and her husband David of Saint Thomas and Donald McGREGOR and his wife Marg of Mississauga. Margaret was predeceased by her brother, Joseph CROSBY. She is survived by her sister, Donna DAVIES and thirteen grandchildren - Jeff, Jayne, Paul, Kim, Sean, Kelly, Christy, Cameron, Tui, Keiran, Maggie May, Callum and Bridget, ten great-grandchildren and a number of nieces and nephews.
Margaret was born on January 17, 1922 in the same room as her mother at Dunboyne. Each summer she enjoyed the reunion there to reacquaint with old Friends. She remembered the days of the horse and buggy and the first cars in the area. At thirteen, she tied tobacco for five dollars a day. On October 30, 1946 James Kenneth was injured in the middle yard at the Michigan Central Railway and died on November 1. Margaret was blessed with their two beautiful children to raise. In the years following her marriage in 1956 to Harold, the family often visited his home at Sutton, Quebec. Margaret worked at Victor Gasket Hayes Dana until 1986. She enjoyed the retirees' meetings and swapping stories. Now she had had time to devote to her needlework - quilting, knitting, crocheting and embroidery. She had gardened all her life and made her flowerbeds abundant with growth and colour. Her trailer at Springwater was an opportunity for her to share baking and have friendly conversation. Family occasions were always a joy and as the matriarch, Margaret would sit and chat with each and everyone. Resting at Williams Funeral Home, 45 Elgin Street, Saint Thomas where the funeral service will be held Friday at 1: 00 p.m. with interment to follow at Aylmer Cemetery. Visitation Wednesday 7-9 p.m. and Thursday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. As Margaret spent her life in Elgin County, donations would be appreciated to the Elgin-Saint Thomas Community Foundation (McGregor and Morris Fund) which will grant projects in the community she called home.

SAUL, Stewart Allan (April 27, 1937-October 11, 2005)
It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of Stewart Allan SAUL. Stew was on a hunting trip with Friends, as is usual at this time of year. A genuine outdoorsman, he was where he loved to be. Stewart leaves behind his loving wife of 46 years Pauline (SOMES) and their three children. Stew was the very proud father of Richard and his partner Bobbi, Jim and his wife Lisa and Janet and her husband Brandon. Stewart was a wonderful Papa to Kristy, Kenny, Jacky, Kelly, Erika, Tara, Cassie and Aidan. Although he was born an only child, Pauline shared her large family with him bringing him the joy of many brothers and sisters. Pauline's family of Enid, Margaret, Norma and Don, Jack and Joan and Wayne will also greatly miss this generous and fun-loving man. Uncle Stew will be fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews. Stewart was the only child of Mattie and Harker SAUL, born in Chauvin, Alberta. He has a large family of cousins across the country and is fondly remembered by Enid, Don, Sharon, Beryl, Betty, Annette, Robin, Owen and Eric. Stew and Pauline made Friends wherever they went and they went often. Stew will always be remembered fondly by many Friends across the country. For the last several years, they spent their winters at Nettle's Island in Florida where Stew will be remembered as a generous neighbour and avid horse shoe thrower, eager fisherman and a fine dancer. At the cottage on MacKenzie Lake where Stew has built a legacy for generations to come, he will be sadly missed by many Friends and neighbours. At home in Camlachie, Ontario, Stew was a fine farmer and businessman. He is known for his huge heart, ready smile, quick wit and generous nature. Stew has been an active member of the Optimists, Masons and Shriners over the years, giving back to the small community that he called home. Resting at the Ronn E.

LORIMER, Myrtle I. (née MOORE)
On April 6 Myrtle I. LORIMER died in Coquitlam, British Columbia from a cancer that confined her to bed in her last weeks. She did not suffer unduly and maintained her wry sense of humour almost until the end. She assured us all many times that she had led a long and happy life.
Myrt was born May 20, 1912 in Regina to James Hamilton MOORE, blacksmith, and Annie (HUNTER) MOORE, seamstress. She is survived by her husband Wes, whom she married in 1940, her children James (publisher, Halifax), Rowland (professor, Vancouver) and Elizabeth (Betty; musician, Ottawa), her grandchildren Eric and MifAnne Lorimer BOLLMAN, Stefan, Conor, and Julia LORIMER and step-grandchildren Lynn MacGREGOR, Wendy MacGregor STORDY and Bill MacGREGOR, and her nephews and nieces. In her final years her nephew David BROWN and his wife, Marsha, were most kind and nurturing.
In early adulthood, Myrt acquired a specialist certificate for teaching kindergarten and began her professional career in Regina. However she was forced to give up teaching by a Regina School Board policy forbidding the employment of married women. She briefly returned to teaching kindergarten in Moose Jaw and then again in her 80s and 90s at Maple Leaf Estates in Florida, teaching music theory to seniors.
Myrtle and Wes moved their family to Winnipeg in 1949 and Myrt became active in many community organizations as a board member, board chair, and president. Her volunteer work included the Children's Home, the Fort Garry Library, the Winnipeg Library, and, perhaps her greatest love, the International Music Camp at the Peace Garden where she was involved for 45 years, many years as a board member, some as president. She was instrumental in establishing the Manitoba Committee, a group of nine Canadians who, with nine Americans, operate the music camp. She recognized as a Woman of Distinction in 1984 by the Winnipeg Young Women's Christian Association / Young Men's Christian Association, by the Mayor of Winnipeg for her service to the city, and by the International Music Camp.
We will remember Myrt's social grace and acumen, her sense of justice, her love of music and art, her avid card playing, her feistiness, her love, warmth, and conspiratorial delight, and her devotion to providing opportunities for her family and others.
A memorial service will be held Friday April 15 at 3: 00 pm at Saint John's College Chapel at the University of Manitoba. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the International Music Camp c/o #9 - 270 Roslyn Road, Winnipeg R3L 0H3, Crossroads Hospice, P.O. Box 1072, Coquitlam V3J 6Z4, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

I Remember -- Christina McCALL
By Roy MacGREGOR, Friday, May 6, 2005, Page S9
Globe and Mail columnist Roy MacGREGOR also writes about Christina McCALL.
Christina McCALL was one of those people who, like border collies, like to think they can't be seen as they go about their work. Back in the early 1970s, I spent several years as a very junior editor at Maclean's. She was, surely, the only one on staff more shy than I. She was beautiful -- dark and elegantly dressed -- but walked with shoulders hunched and tried, it seemed, to vanish into the walls.
She edited the major-name freelancers, wrote pieces herself, and was such a profound magazine mind that those of us who weren't at all sure what we were doing there used to play a handy little trick on her. The method of operation back then was to take an article and "circulate" it among the staff. One by one, we editors would read the piece, jot down a few thoughts, make some marginal notes, and pass it on after crossing out our own name at the top of the list. Then, once all the grand thoughts had been assembled, you would write a "fix" note to the author, if necessary, and send it off. The trick among those of us who hadn't a clue was to take a piece and send it off immediately to Christine with a vague note saying something like "There's something here, but something also not here -- any thoughts?" A day or so later, a brilliant note, neatly typed and often pages long, would be dropped in your mailbox. Even before you dared "circulate" the piece, you had your "fix" note, courtesy of the best mind in the building. Like the best editors, and the best of border collies, she did her finest work unnoticed.

I Remember -- Scott YOUNG
By Gerry FRYER, Saturday, June 18, 2005. Page S9
Thornhill, Ontario -- Scott YOUNG's obituary appeared on June The passing of Scott YOUNG this week brought back for me memories of September, 1964, and the conversion of Toronto's CJBC into a French radio station. I came to Toronto at the time to work as an announcer on the newly converted station.
There was some hostility in the newspapers regarding the conversion, as CJBC was popular with the English-speaking audience. But we found an unexpected friend in the most unexpected place: Scott YOUNG, a columnist for The Globe and Mail who had written several columns supporting a French CJBC.
On October 1, 1964, our first day on air in French, we had wanted to interview Mr. YOUNG. When we phoned him for an appointment, we found out he did not speak French. But we agreed to meet anyway. We met at his Rosedale home and, for the next two hours, painstakingly, we put together a good minute and a half of Scott YOUNG in French.
Word by word, Mr. YOUNG repeated each word of a prepared French text several times until he had reached a perfect pronunciation for each one. Back at CJBC, it was my job to edit Mr. YOUNG's voice. It took me a good three hours of minute splicing of quarter-inch audiotape. But, at the end, we had Mr. YOUNG wishing the best for the new CJBC in a more than passable French.
This was my first interview with a member of our new Toronto audience. I could not have had a better introduction to this city than the one I got with this most civilized and broadminded Torontonian.
Vive Scott YOUNG!
Jacques GAUTHIER, Toronto
On learning of Scott YOUNG's passing, I was immediately taken back to the early 1960s in Winnipeg. Then, most schoolboys played hockey year-round, watched Hockey Night in Canada every Saturday and read every book that could be found about the greatest team sport in history and "the world's fastest game."
At the time, many of us still thought we had a legitimate shot at playing professional hockey, despite the nearly insurmountable odds against that prospect. Mr. YOUNG's scintillating trilogy Scrubs on Skates, Boy on Defence and Boy at the Leafs' Camp was the cornerstones of most of our rather limited personal libraries.
I ripped through the pages of Scrubs on Skates so many times that the book nearly disintegrated. Somehow, Santa knew to put another copy under the tree that year.
Mr. YOUNG's books were the first works of fiction that ever set my heart racing while broadening my horizons to consider some of life's possibilities. For many, it was the closest we ever got to the training camp of a professional hockey team, and we can all thank Scott YOUNG for that opportunity. His power with the pen could thrill and excite while magically transporting you to the world of your dreams.
Roy MacGREGOR notes that Canadians now have "no Scott YOUNG to connect the national game to the national culture" (This Country June 15). Fortunately for many of us, he already has and his legacy will live on for generations to come.
Jeffrey PECKITT, Oakville, Ontario
About 45 years ago, during my first (and only) year in Ryerson's journalism program, I decided -- in my desire to become Canada's greatest sportswriter -- that I should write about my school's teams for The Globe and Mail.
Shamelessly invoking the name of an uncle who knew him, I visited Jim VIPOND, the Sports editor, and suggested that The Globe needed to cover Ryerson sports -- and that I was just the man to do it. Without missing a beat, he sent me out of his office to write a brief autobiography to help him make a decision.
Choosing an empty chair in front of an old manual typewriter, I almost froze when I noticed that the man pounding away next to me was Scott YOUNG, an icon in sports journalism and one of my heroes. I recall no greeting or sign of acknowledgment from my neighbour (and I certainly would not have dreamed of interrupting him); but that brief near-encounter remains one of my fondest memories.
Despite shaking, clammy hands, a suddenly dry throat and a blank mind, I managed to bang out something for Mr. VIPOND. I got the non-paying "job" and, for a few months, wrote for the same newspaper as Scott YOUNG at the peak of his career.
Eventually, I met my wife, Gail. She bettered my story: She and a former boyfriend used to double-date with Scott YOUNG's son Neil. Together, we still feel a certain affinity with the YOUNGs.
Carl A. CHRISTIE, Winnipeg
In the late 1950s, my parents purchased the full Encyclopedia Britannica on my behalf. Being more sports mad at the time than now, I was delighted to find an article titled Hockey -- A Nation's Pastime in the 1960 yearbook. The article left an indelible impression on me, and I have read it many times since.
It was built around a 1-0 game in December, 1959, between the Maple Leafs and the Canadiens. The author, Scott YOUNG (at that time a Globe and Mail columnist), described the atmosphere inside and outside Maple Leaf Gardens beforehand, including the scalpers and the standing-room patrons, who at that time were about 15 per cent of the Gardens' ticket holders. Then came "the whole beauty of the game" - teamwork, body checks, high skills and reflexes, and the individuality of stars like Doug Harvey, the Pocket Rocket, Jean Beliveau ("moving with the effortless power of a big buck deer"), and the only goal scorer, Frank Mahovlich.
Mr. YOUNG's article soared by translating the Canadian passion for ice hockey into poetry. He wrote, "Throughout the game the noise of the crowd was a constant series of great Ohs," and, at game's end, "Here I had seen something to remember -- the Canadian equivalent of an Italian opera audience, rising as one to shout 'Bravo.' "
That article is a time capsule of my love for the game, and also of what the return of great hockey would mean for our country. Thank you, Scott YOUNG.

LAMBERTS, 63, stage's mirth master
By Robert CREW, Arts Writer
He was a comic genius with a troubled soul, a man able to leave a whole theatre helpless with laughter.
Toronto-born Heath LAMBERTS, for many years a mainstay at the Shaw Festival, died early yesterday in a Pittsburgh hospital.
"He was a genius," said Andrew Paul, artistic director of the Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre. "I don't use that word lightly. There are very few people that have the sort of skills he has as a comedic actor and a clown."
LAMBERTS had been in remission after being diagnosed with cancer about five years ago, but had a recurrence recently and the cancer had spread to his vital organs, said Paul.
At one time LAMBERTS was, without a doubt, Canada's favourite farceur. His 12 seasons at the Shaw Festival between 1974 and 1985 were filled with wildly successful productions of light fare such as One for the Pot, Tons of Money and A Flea in Her Ear.
An actor of bustling energy and razor-sharp timing, his supreme comic gifts won him a Dora Award in 1981 for his performance as Pseudolus in a Toronto production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
But it was a production of Cyrano de Bergerac, staged at the Shaw in 1982 and 1983 and revived at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in 1985, that confirmed that his talents extended far deeper.
His deeply romantic Cyrano made you laugh then made you cry, finally breaking your heart. It won him his second Dora.
"This is one occasion where you can use the phrase 'God-given,'" Barry MacGREGOR, who acted with LAMBERTS on many occasions, said of LAMBERTS yesterday.
"He was brilliant at making people laugh but was sometimes impossible to work with. He had a lot of demons and didn't suffer fools gladly.
"I think he expected anyone who was working with him to have the same intense concentration that he had."
LAMBERTS was a practising Buddhist for many years, restlessly seeking for self-knowledge and enlightenment. Media interviews with him were volatile and unpredictable.
Born James LANCASTER in 1941, LAMBERTS began his career as a boy soprano with the Toronto Opera Company. He was a member of the first class (along with Martha Henry and Diana Leblanc) at the newly opened National Theatre School in Montreal in 1960.
Jim SSAINTWRENCE was a childhood friend who knew LAMBERTS from the days that they were both boy sopranos.
"He prided himself that he never had another job other than acting," he said.
After graduating in 1963 and winning the Toronto Telegram Award for Most Promising Newcomer, he joined the Stratford Festival, winning two Guthrie Awards.
In addition to his acclaimed work at the Shaw Festival, he excelled in a number of high-profile roles at the Vancouver Playhouse in the late 1970s.
The parting with the Shaw Festival was less than happy but LAMBERTS then made a number of appearances in Toronto, notably in David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross in 1987 and a revival of One for the Pot in 1996. The latter won him his third Dora.
LAMBERTS was named to the Order of Canada in 1987.
He also had a successful run on Broadway in the Disney production Beauty and the Beast. in the mid-1990s. He then starred alongside Sarah Jessica Parker in the 1996-7 New York production of Once Upon a Mattress.
LAMBERTS' career had slowed over the last few years. He busied himself with supporting comedic roles that didn't interfere with his cancer treatments.
He had moved to Pittsburgh a few years ago because he was in a relationship with a woman there, and because of the health care available, said Paul.
Jennifer PHIPPS, who performed with LAMBERTS in several productions at the Shaw Festival, remembered him as a "marvellous, wonderful comic.
"I always thought he was extraordinarily funny."
Many, many thousands of theatregoers would agree.

McGROARTY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2005-12-15 published
Sobbing pals recall their 'rose'
Kitchen volunteer fed hungry with food from own fridge
Pattern of abuse started early in victim's life, cousin says
By Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporter with files from Dale Anne FREED
Rose McGROARTY was known for putting the needs of others -- to eat a good meal, find shelter, have a shower -- before her own. Even among close Friends, the 46-year-old rarely talked about her aches, the causes of the bruises beneath her sweater, why she spent so much time volunteering at the Parkdale Activity-Recreation Centre, or made it her home away from home.
If only she had, mournful Friends said yesterday, her fate might have been different.
"I can't help thinking that I wish I had known what you were going through," a friend wrote to McGROARTY in a letter read at a packed memorial service at the community centre. The building houses the kitchen where McGROARTY spent six days a week the last three years volunteering and making Friends -- until she disappeared last month. Her dismembered body parts have been found throughout the city.
But a family member said it would have been out of character for the hard-luck woman to tell anyone if she was a punching bag. She learned early, the cousin said yesterday, to distract herself and not dwell on what was really going on.
"I understand that she didn't have a whole lot of money in Toronto," said Kimberly CAMPBELL, a cousin who grew up with McGROARTY in London, Ontario "The catch here is that it didn't start (in Toronto)," she told the Star in a phone interview. "But Rose Marie was the type of person, no matter what anybody did to her, she would never talk about it."
A pattern of abuse in McGROARTY's life started early, when she was about 6 or 7, CAMPBELL said. She was living in London at the time, and with her mother unable to care for her -- for reasons that are unclear -- McGROARTY moved into a boarding house run by Edith SANDERS.
In 2002, SANDERS was convicted for enslaving and torturing children, including CAMPBELL, her adopted daughter, from the 1950s to the 1980s. SANDERS' victims testified at her trial that while under her care, they were beaten with hockey sticks, tortured with a cattle prod and forced to eat animal feces. SANDERS was sentenced in January 2003 to four years in prison on four counts of assault and three counts of assault causing bodily harm. She died last year while on parole.
The conviction stemmed from allegations brought by CAMPBELL and other siblings; none of the charges that resulted in conviction related to McGROARTY.
"Rose Marie didn't have a fighting chance (in life,)" CAMPBELL said, recounting their tormented childhood. "Dysfunctional leads to dysfunctional. She didn't get the education she needed, she was abused mentally and physically, and yet she went along in life and tried to accomplish and do the best that she could.
"It sounds to me that she was doing wonderfully for what she experienced in her lifetime. She was such a forgiving person."
"This was Rose's home. This was a very important place for her," said Peggy-Gail DEHAL- RAMSON, a Parkdale community advocate.
Nearly 100 people gathered at the memorial service, one of two held for McGROARTY yesterday. Leaning on canes -- and each other and wiping wet cheeks, those whom McGROARTY treated like family lamented their great loss. At times, centre general manager Victor WILLIS had to pause to console the crowd.
"There's such a disconnect between who she was and how she died," he said. "We will not let another woman be harmed in our community."
Three women who worked alongside McGROARTY in the kitchen each day, Michelle WALDRON, Jean McGRATH and Sugar WALKER -- who had a red silk rose pinned to her top -- sobbed uncontrollably during the reading of farewell letters they wrote to their friend.
"Knowing someone like you, Rosie, you really were a 'rose,'" one letter said. "A good friend. A beautiful person. A 'rose' could not be so sweet as you!"
Greg DOWE, 25, met McGROARTY through his grandmother, Marjorie, who frequently offered up her Dunn Ave. apartment for McGROARTY when she needed a reprieve.
"This is just like killing a part of my family," DOWE said. "She's the kind of person who would give up their life in order for somebody else to live. Everything about her was to make everybody else happy."
Later in the afternoon, Father Vaughan QUINN asked 20 parishioners to remember McGROARTY and her good works at a service at the Missionaries of Charity Convent, near her apartment.
WALKER said McGROARTY had been trying to mend fences with her mother and two children, in their 20s, after years of estrangement.
After the hour-long service at the Parkdale community centre, Friends stayed to trade favourite stories about McGROARTY. She was a rare volunteer who allowed the very hungry to come back for seconds -- if the food ran out, she wasn't above running home and taking from her own fridge.
Robert WISZNIOWSKI, McGROARTY's 50-year-old common-law husband, has been charged with second-degree murder.
