Linda HACKETT, 56: 'Upbeat' volunteer
Even chemotherapy couldn't dull Linda HACKETT's appreciation of life
Her many Friends recall an indomitable spirit
By Catherine DUNPHY, Lifelines
Linda HACKETT was just one of 375 volunteers who deliver 30,000 copies of Beach Metro News community newspaper. She'd been distributing 80 copies throughout 59 Edgewood, the low-rise apartment building where she lived, since September, 2001 as reliable as rain.
The paper's general manager, Sheila BLINOFF, had no idea HACKETT was blind until one day last spring when she showed up at the office to have her picture taken for the paper with her new guide dog Ginny.
"She was always so upbeat," BLINOFF said. "She told me it was a good thing we were taking her picture that day when she had her hair because she was starting a new round of chemotherapy the next week."
It was not her first run-in with the disease. She beat back advanced skin cancer in 1980 by having skin and muscle removed from her shoulder, then fought breast cancer with a total mastectomy in March, 2003, followed by chemo and radiation later that year. When the cancer flared again the next summer, she signed on for more chemotherapy. But on May 25 she was told her cancer was back, and this time, it wouldn't be going away.
Nevertheless, two days later she attended the regular monthly seniors' lunch program run by Meals Here and There, where she announced it was Ginny's birthday, to great fanfare.
The next day she gamely went out in a borrowed wheelchair to the annual Beaches Triangle neighbourhood garage sale, where she scored a keyboard. She loved garage sales, but this purchase was a special find for her because the chemo she had been undergoing had left her fingers numb and she wanted to exercise them.
But that night -- May 28 -- she was felled by a massive stroke and hospitalized again. In mid-June the doctors told her she had three months to a year to live and would never walk again. She immediately demanded physiotherapy to prove them wrong even as she was admitted to Bridgepoint's palliative care ward. By July she was organizing a Yahoo group to co-ordinate her visitors.
When a young, inexperienced nurse confessed she didn't know what to do with a blind patient, HACKETT said to her: "We have a hug."
But she knew she was slipping away.
"Colleen, I don't want to die," she told her friend Colleen PEACOCK, who heads Meals Here and There, where HACKETT used to do volunteer office work.
HACKETT's husband, Craig NEWMAN, moved into her room to be with her in the last few weeks. He slept on a chair at nights, going home during the day only to care for Ginny.
"Linda was scared," he said. "I would be too, to be blind and not be able to see if a nurse went by, to ask for help. She would have done it for me."
She died September 22 at 56. Her death stunned her Friends. If anyone was going to beat cancer, they thought, it would be her. She kept telling them she would. "I'm a fighter," she'd say. "They (doctors) don't know me, I'm going to beat this."
Of course, a lot of courageous people dealing with a cancer diagnosis say words like that. But they aren't HACKETT, who'd had to fight for everything in her life, including being able to stay in her adopted homeland of Canada. Not only did she win that battle, she also exacted in the process a promise from a cabinet minister to change the law.
Fighting back, fighting hard, had been her credo, or maybe her mantra, certainly her modus operandi since she was 10 months old and had both her eyes removed when retinal blastoma robbed her of her eyesight.
She was a timid girl from La Jolla hanging around the University of California's Berkeley campus when Mike YALE first met her in 1968. He, too, was blind but, unlike her at the time, he was a firebrand. YALE was a journalist and activist involved in the free speech, anti-war movements who was visiting Berkeley after moving to Toronto and being accepted into law school.
"Lynn was shy. I don't think she had finished high school and didn't have a lot of prospects. She did a lot of babysitting then," YALE recalled.
Her abusive father had left when she was still a toddler; her mother was an invalid and she had been raised by protective grandparents. So he was shocked to find HACKETT on his Toronto doorstep six weeks later. They were together three years, during which time HACKETT got her first guide dog and they spent a year living and working a farm with sighted Friends.
They had broken up -- but remained good Friends -- when HACKETT got a letter from the immigration appeal board telling her she couldn't stay in Canada because she was an epileptic. YALE leapt into action, phoning 23 members of Parliament over one weekend at their homes or their offices. The late Alexander ROSS, who wrote a city column for this newspaper, also championed her cause.
"The Immigration Appeal Board has decided that Lynn HACKETT must be deported and it makes me ashamed of my country," he wrote in November, 1972.
"The maddening thing is," he wrote in the same column, "she was disqualified on grounds which even department officials agree are obsolete -- the prohibition against epilepsy, a condition which Lynn admits to, but which doesn't bother her."
When the smoke cleared, HACKETT was deported November 9, but allowed back into Canada 24 hours later on a special visa granted to her by then-Immigration Minister Bryce MacKASEY, who vowed to lift the immigration ban on epileptics during the next session of Parliament. "I made it. I'm really home," she told a Toronto Star reporter.
Then she proceeded to make quite a life for herself. After working for $75 a week doing telephone customer relations with the Capitol Record Club, she moved to A and M Records and then to a position as an overseas telephone operator with Bell. She took up bicycle riding with the Tandem Bicycle Club for fun, belonged to a ham radio club, made jewellery and loved camping. With Yale, she was involved in starting Blind Organization of Ontario with Self Help Tactics in 1975.
"The whole point of The Blind Organization of Ontario with Self Help Tactics was to educate blind people to stand on their own feet and fight for themselves," he said.
When she was laid off from Bell in 2000, she began volunteering. She helped sort shoes to be sent to Cuba for one charity and, in 2002, she brought her Braille writer to PEACOCK's office to take down phone messages. Soon she was reminding clients of the dinners and scheduling rides.
"She had it all organized on thick cardboard," PEACOCK said. "I was amazed. After a while I forgot she was blind."
She never missed the movie night at her church, Glen Rhodes United. The minister there, Susan THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, was thrilled when HACKETT brought Ginny to the Sunday school and agreed to read at a special Lent candlelight service called Service of Shadows.
"I called Lynn and dictated the reading to her, she wrote it down in Braille, learned it and that night, out of the shadows, light appeared and her beautiful voice filled the room," THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. "It was magical."
THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON led the funeral service and PEACOCK provided a final resting place for their friend in her family's plot in nearby Saint John's Cemetery. Donations for a marker can be sent to Susan. J. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, c/o Glen Rhodes United Church, 1470 Gerrard St. E., Toronto.

Harold, Marion, David and Carolyn operated Hickory Crest Farms, the dairy farm where Harold was born in the Gore of Downie Township. Harold had three loves in his life, his family, the land and all thing mechanical. His love of the land was reflected by his many activities including Chairman of the Perth County Soil and Crop Association, Chairman of the Perth County Milk Committee and as the first board member of Region 10, of the Ontario Milk Marketing Board. His love of all things mechanical was centered on his collection of vintage Ford vehicles (he earned his last speeding ticket shortly before his last birthday) and "museum quality" agriculture machinery, most of which worked! He was also a pilot and owned a Piper J-3 for a number of years. Harold will also be much missed by his constant, and not so silent companion, Jack Russell, Gigi. A celebration of Harold's life will take place at St. James Anglican Church, Stratford on Tuesday, January 11, 2005 at 2 p.m. Private burial will take place.

Advocate hailed for 'massive spirit'
Greenpeace co-founder Bob HUNTER is remembered for his tenacity and humour.
By John McKAY, Canadian Press
Toronto -- Bob HUNTER, who co-founded Greenpeace and was also a broadcaster, journalist, prolific author and political hopeful, died yesterday after a lengthy battle with prostate cancer. He was 63.
In his most recent public role, the Manitoba-born HUNTER was the ecology news specialist for CHUM's Citytv and CP24 television channels.
He was perhaps best known to Toronto viewers for Paper Cuts, a morning television segment in which he wore a bathrobe and commented on stories in the day's newspapers.
"This was a man with a great loving heart, a brilliant mind and a massive spirit," said Stephen HURLBUT, vice-president of news programming for Citytv. "It is a sadder world today, but a better world because of him."
HUNTER died surrounded by Bobbi, his wife of 31 years, and his children Will, Emily, Conan and Justine. Funeral arrangements were yet to be decided.
"Bob was an inspirational storyteller, an audacious fighter and an unpretentious mystic," said John DOHERTY, chair of Greenpeace Canada in a statement. "He was serious about saving the world while always maintaining a sense of humour."
HUNTER first came to prominence in Vancouver in 1971 when he was invited to join a group taking a charter vessel to Alaska to protest nuclear testing the U.S. began on Amchitka Island in the Aleutians in 1965.
"I thought I was going to be a reporter, taking notes," the one-time newspaper reporter remarked at the time.
"In reality, I wound up on first watch."
He stayed for the 45-day duration of the voyage and subsequently helped shape the beginning of the Greenpeace Foundation in '72.
Today, the organization has more than 2.5 million members with a presence in 40 countries.
He left Greenpeace's employ in '81 and turned to writing and broadcasting to transmit his green message. He was once named one of Time magazine's top eco-heroes of the 20th century.
In 2001, he ran unsuccessfully for the Ontario Liberal party for a by-election seat.

McFARLANE, Stacey Elizabeth Michelle
(August 23, 1989-August 20, 2005)
It is with immeasurable sadness we must announce a truly remarkable young lady has been honoured with her wings and granted her wish to breathe free. Stacey lived with Cystic Fibrosis all of her life. Twenty-two months of waiting for her double lung transplant and after many sacrifices, Stacey received her much needed transplant on July 17, 2005.
Unfortunately, Stacey encountered many unexpected setbacks and complications and on Saturday, August 20, 2005 at Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto, Stacey Elizabeth Michelle McFARLANE left to be an angel with her loving and dedicated family holding her near and with them at her side.
She was the precious, cherished and inspirational daughter of Mike and Kelly, sister and best friend to Brandon, Jessica and Blair. She was extremely loved by grandparents Marg McFARLANE and Darlene and Harland McKAY. Predeceased by grandpas Allan McFARLANE (1977) and Daniel MARTIN (2000.) She was adored by all her aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was able to leave a place in the hearts of everyone she had the pleasure to meet. The city of Sarnia always had her in their thoughts and prayers over the last three years and she had many devoted doctors, caring nurses and remarkable Friends at both London Health Sciences and Toronto Sick Children's Hospital that we will never forget. Although she had Cystic Fibrosis, she lived life to the fullest. She was an inspiration in that she had a positive outlook and the most unbelievable zest for life. She was forced to make many sacrifices at a very young age and never looked back. She enjoyed to speak with and for various organizations and always managed to leave her spunky loveable zest with every soul she touched. Stacey's pink presence always made us smile. Her compassion for children, her unwillingness to quit and her true appreciation of the gift of life will remain with us all. She was an angel on this earth with a message for us all. Her lifetime Friends in Sarnia and the wonderful kids and adults in our Toronto and Pickering area were able to enjoy her maturity and wisdom. She will be missed by her Friends at the Sarnia Kinsmen Club, the workers in the Chemical Valley, her Friends at the Sarnia Jail, Lambton Ford and various churches and sororities in Sarnia, Errol Road School, Northern Collegiate and Saint Mary Catholic School in Pickering. Remember “Life is not measured by the number of breaths that we take but by the moments that take our breath away.” We will love you forever. Thank you for what you have given each of us.
A funeral service will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2005 at 11: 00 am from Smith Funeral Home, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, Ontario (519) 542-5541. Interment in Lakeview Cemetery. Friends will be received at the Smith Funeral Home on Thursday evening from 7 to 9 pm and again on Friday afternoon from 2 to 4 pm and evening from 7 to 9 pm. Sympathy through donations to the Cystic Fibrosis, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto and S.O.D.A. would be appreciated by the family.

Died peacefully in her ninetieth year on Friday, January 21, 2005, at her residence in the Seven Oaks Home for the Aged.

In her life she was also an athlete, an artist, a mother, a homemaker and a wonderful partner to her late husband Reverend W.H. JOHN in his lifelong ministry. She is survived by daughter Beth E.

William MacMurray LOUGHEED
By Donna DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Friday, February 4, 2005 - Page A16
Neurosurgeon, teacher, husband, father, boat-builder. Born July 9, 1923, in Toronto. Died September 30, 2004, in Barrie, Ontario, of respiratory failure, aged 81.
There he sat, a short, round-faced young man, hunched over the dining room table, Plasticine model in hand. At right, his wife's sewing kit. At left, a brain X-ray. With patience, the young surgeon recreated that brain, blood vessels, arteries, tissue everything. He tested needle entry angles, complexities of reach and retrieval. "Test" over, he left for Toronto General Hospital. Bill LOUGHEED's legacy is larger than his own life. First, surgeon. Then, teacher of medical residents. Researcher. Author of medical papers that shifted neurosurgery to new heights.
Excellent teachers stand back and let students learn. Even in life-and-death operating room experiences, Bill could navigate residents through complex neurosurgical procedures with heroic patience and achieve a positive outcome, the medical resident's pride of achievement intact.
The country's medical geniuses pay tribute to the man with the growly voice, the operating room work-boots, the ability to relate a procedure involving minute operations on the brain to the building of a boat. Son, brother, husband of doctors, Bill thought like an engineer. He looked ahead, tested, thought things through.
Bill's family grew up watching their father "operate" on the Christmas turkey. Precision, instruction -- doled out with humour and candour -- were part of the trademark style of the man whose life-work has saved thousands of lives.
Through neurosurgeon Dr. K. G. McKENZIE, Bill decided to pursue research into the blood vessels of the brain. Consider his firsts: being Canada's first (and one of the world's first) neurosurgeon to use the microscope in the operating theatre; designer of the world's innovative, life-saving aneurysm clip; performer of the world's first long-vein artery bypass for the brain. During his lifetime he became a neurosurgical superstar.
A man with several communities, Bill balanced, often precariously, the needs of a vibrant neurosurgical practice, a demanding operating schedule, research responsibilities, teaching position, and cottage community where his love of boats embraced the entire family.
Bill built an eight-foot boat for each of his grandchildren. By the time each was 3, they were -- life-jacketed -- rowing green or yellow punts up and down the waters of Georgian Bay, calling on their Friends as awestruck parents looked on.
He believed potential surgeons should be graded on woodworking as well as science. He used the same approach in his garage as in his research labs. Make a model. Then test it. Rebuild it. Retest it. Don't use the marine mahogany until you're sure it's going to work.
Bill LOUGHEED respected people in every walk of life, his O.R. nurses as much as surgical residents. He gave the same attention to the marina owner where he kept his boat as he did to the hospital Chief Executive Officer.
Bill met his wife, Grace, in medical school and Grace concentrated on his career and their family of five. She enhanced his ability to reach for the highest branch. Together they were impulsive, creative, funny, forgiving. When Bill retired in 1991, they moved to Barrie to be near family. Here Grace died in 1995. In the same home, sailboats on the bay outside his front window, Bill suffered a final respiratory attack. Bill's kids, along with his later life partner, Margot MacKAY, celebrated his life with his "communities." In his later life, Bill created a wonderland for squirrels, for blue jays, for cardinals, for tiny finches, coaxing them to his side for daily treats; his last years full of wonder at the power of a kind voice and patient hand.
Donna is a friend of the family.

Mim's memories are like an encyclopedia of Canadian art history. An accomplished artist, Mim was a highly valued and talented member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour and the Heliconian Club (past president) for over 60 years. Some of Mim's artwork may be found today at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour On-Line Gallery and the Art Gallery of Peel in Brampton. Up until very recently, Mim thoroughly enjoyed her weekly painting sessions with her friend and fellow artist, Fred FLETCHER. The family would like to extend heartfelt appreciation and thanks to Ida Coloma, 'Mum's' faithful companion and housekeeper for over 25 years, as well as for the dedicated, constant care and support given by Norma, Janet and Maria, and the regular visits from family friend, Dr. Jim SWAN.

Michelle McKAY -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, May 21, 2005, Page M6
Seventeen is a young age to be a bride, but Michelle McKAY wanted to get married before cancer destroyed her brain. Her boyfriend, Kevin LEE, who was 19 at the time, proposed to her last fall when it became clear that her health was deteriorating fast.
"In October, they told me that the tumour was growing quickly and they only gave her a few months," says Ms. McKAY's mother, Sheila PAUL. " That's when Kevin said he wanted to marry her and I put together a wedding in only four weeks."
Mr. LEE was confident that they would have been married some day, but he says the schedule was taken over by his girlfriend's illness. He told his prospective in-laws the same thing when they questioned whether he was doing it just to make his girlfriend feel better.
"I would have done it anyway," said Mr. LEE, a University of Waterloo student. "I wanted to spend my life with Michelle. It wasn't just something I said."
Ms. McKAY was first diagnosed on Valentine's Day of 2003. Later that year, she met Mr. LEE at a Halloween party.
Exactly a year after her diagnosis, she woke up at home screaming. Doctors found that the disease had worsened and prescribed more invasive treatment. That fall, less than 12 months after they met, Ms. McKAY and Mr. LEE were married in their hometown of Milton. They chose a humanist ceremony -- which has no legal standing -- because a traditional marriage would have meant that Ms. McKAY would lose health benefits under her mother's medical insurance.
The new couple were hoping to mark this year's Valentine's Day by spending the weekend alone, but Ms. LEE became violently ill again and was forced back to hospital. She died in Mr. LEE's arms two weeks later, on February 27. She was 18.

Jimmy LOGAN
By Carole Anne LOGAN, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page A12
Veteran, father, friend. Born August 20, 1925, in Glasgow, Scotland. Died April 16, in Burlington, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged Jimmy LOGAN was the eldest of five children of Martha and James LOGAN. He learned to speak up and speak often to be heard in that boisterous family. His father's position as a printer at Blackie and Sons sheltered them from the worst of the Depression. After school, Jimmy played a bugle with the Boys Brigade, worked as the milkman's assistant, and played football.
In 1939, as the Second World War began, Jimmy started in the shipyards as the apprentice of still another Jimmy -- Jimmy ADAM/ADAMS, who remained a lifelong friend. British shipyard workers were exempt from conscription but in defiance of that, he quit his apprenticeship when he turned 18 so he could join the Royal Engineers. His field company landed June 8, 1944, on Sword Beach near Ouistreham, France.
After Sapper LOGAN's part in Hitler's downfall, he returned to the shipyards, to the semi-professional football leagues and to the dancehalls. At the F and F (Fyfe and Fyfe) Dancehall, he met Anne McKAY. She was impressed by his light footwork, good manners and black wavy hair.
Friends suggested going to Canada and Jimmy was game for a new adventure. The group disembarked at Montreal in November, 1952, and travelled to Toronto. They found a rooming house on Logan Avenue and thought it a good omen. The landlady, Lottie, mothered her Scottish lads while they settled in. "Look," his friend Jim CAMERON said one day, "I've bought us all coffee shirts!" "T-shirts," corrected Lottie. "That disnae make ony sense," came the confused reply. "Everyone here drinks coffee."
Jimmy chose to stay. He proposed to Anne McKAY by letter and sent the money for an engagement ring. Anne arrived, accompanied by Jimmy ADAM/ADAMS' wife Mattie, a trousseau and a white wedding gown purchased in Glasgow after lengthy consultations between mothers, daughters and cousins. They married in St. Paul's Presbyterian in Hamilton before a surprisingly large number of Friends. Surprising unless you knew how easily Jimmy made Friends; he had invited everyone he knew.
They bought a house in Burlington that he stubbornly kept for 44 years. Jimmy worked in the engineering shop at International Harvester where his talents as a Clydebank sheet metal journeyman served well on the engineering team, which hand-built prototypes. He remained a strong supporter of the unions, acted as shop steward in the United Steelworkers local 2868.
Jimmy never lost his Maryhill accent. Canadians, even those who knew him well, can confirm that Jimmy could be indecipherable. Maddeningly, he also liked to talk. Anne and their daughter Carole Anne would roll their eyes and translate as needed. To Jimmy's closest Friends, translation was not necessary. They golfed, joked, and argued about politics and sports. In lieu of the families left in Scotland, they developed family-like connections that continue still. All their children were Canadian and being proud of his Canadian citizenship was not a conflict with Jimmy's pride at also being Scottish.
Retirement was a chance to golf and travel with Anne and Friends. He proudly helped raise his grand_son James. He loved that extended family of cousins and adopted cousins, especially the children since he could tell them the craziest stories and they actually listened! He beat cancer and heart attacks, struggled with arthritis but always kept talking. A heart attack unexpectedly took him. He had no time for last words, but Jimmy might have quoted his favourite poet, Robert Burns: It's coming yet, for a' that / That man to man, the warld o'er / Shall brothers be for a' that. It was his life motto.
Carole Anne is Jimmy's daughter.

Susan GRAVES, Musician (1954-2005)
Connecticut-born bassoonist who 'played like an angel' fell in love with chamber music and co-founded Canada's now-famous Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, October 8, 2005, Page S9
Susan GRAVES, co-founder of Tafelmusik, the internationally acclaimed Baroque orchestra, played the bassoon like an angel and looked as though she had just stepped out of a painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. She had long, wavy copper-coloured hair, blue eyes, freckles, a calm authority and a legendary kindness.
"She had the most beautiful chocolaty, velvety bassoon sound that I have ever encountered," says Jeanne LAMON, music director of Tafelmusik. "She played solos with us frequently in the early years and it was always a highlight for everybody. She was a marvellous musician."
Susan "Susie" GRAVES was the younger child and only daughter of John GRAVES, a chemical engineer and his wife Jane Elizabeth, always known as Betty. Susan went to school in Westport, Connecticut.
"As soon as she learned to read, she took piano lessons," her mother said this week. Every weekday morning, Susan, the Siamese cat Baby, and her mother would get up half an hour early and go downstairs to the family room where Susan practised on an old upright piano. "The cat sat in my lap and when Susan was finished it would get up and walk back and forth across the keys," said Mrs. GRAVES.
At Staples High School, Ms. GRAVES fooled around with an old clarinet that had belonged to her father. Her parents meant to rent a better instrument, but her music teacher said no, we need a bassoon player. Ms. GRAVES obliged and the bassoon became her instrument. "It is not easy to play," her father conceded in a conversation from the GRAVES's retirement home in a suburb of Minneapolis.
After high school, Ms. GRAVES attended the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston where she received a bachelor's degree in 1972 and began studying for her master's. That's where she met her future husband Kenneth (Kenny) SOLWAY, an oboist from Toronto, in October of 1975.
Sharing a love of music and period instruments, they went to Europe together in 1976 to study at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam and at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. "We wanted to play chamber music," her husband said this week from their home in Cobourg Ontario "It didn't matter whether it was baroque or modern."
The couple dreamed up the idea for what is now the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, while they were still in Holland and even played a couple of "table-music" chamber concerts with two Friends. They returned to Toronto in 1978, burbling with schemes and enthusiasm, started the Toronto Chamber Music Collective and presented chamber and orchestral concerts of contemporary and baroque music in small theatres and churches in downtown Toronto.
Their vision was immediately embraced by a number of musicians including double bass player Alison MacKAY, harpsichordist Charlotte NEDIGER and violist Ivars TAURINS all of whom still play with Tafelmusik, more than 25 years later.
"Everything they did in the beginning was exactly the right thing to do," says violinist Jeanne LAMON, who has been music director of Tafelmusik since 1981. Ms. GRAVES and Mr. SOLWAY worked as a team, trying out different people, training modern players in baroque techniques and even landing a Wintario grant to buy bows and wind instruments for the fledgling orchestra and organizing a tour to New York City. "They booked without having an orchestra and pulled it off. We got a good review."
Mr. SOLWAY was the talker with the "go-gettum energy," according to Ms. LAMON, and Ms. GRAVES was the grounded one with the practical skills to write grant proposals and persuade musicians to join them.
"She was a brilliant musician with a beautiful sound and virtuosic technique," said Alison MacKAY. "I regarded her as a mentor." It was "heartrending" at a recent Tafelmusik concert when she recognized Ms. GRAVES's handwriting on the music sheets. "The fact that her presence is still felt, is because her talent penetrated every arena of the organization. She did everything. She played like an angel, she pasted posters on lamp posts, she organized accounts and she wrote out all the parts."
Playing with like-minded Friends and running an orchestra are very different enterprises. "With an oboe in your mouth, you can't talk very much," Mr. SOLWAY explained this week from his home in Cobourg, Ontario "I decided to be general director and to let somebody else do the artistic managing in conjunction with me."
Orchestras often have tensions between the string and wind players and Tafelmusik was no exception. At the same time, imagining an orchestra and running one demand different skill sets. Artistic differences meant that Mr. SOLWAY and Ms. GRAVES went to Vienna to study for a few months and then officially stepped down from the running of the orchestra, although she continued to play with Tafelmusik for a few years.
The couple spent a couple of years in a cabin in Algonquin Park that had belonged to Mr. SOLWAY's family. During winter, their nearest neighbour was 10 miles away by snowshoe. And yet, "those were by far the two most beautiful years of our lives," says Mr. SOLWAY. "We realized then we were near-hermits -- and loved it."
They bought canoe forms from the Chestnut Canoe Company after it disbanded in 1979, and started making and marketing handmade cedar-strip and canvas canoes. After Algonquin Park, they moved to a farm north of Cobourg where they built their own house, raised sheep and grew organic vegetables, which they would bring in to Toronto to sell at the St. Lawrence Market.
Ms. GRAVES began playing as principal bassoonist with the Kingston Symphony Orchestra in the mid-1980s. Gordon FAST became the musical director in 1991.
"In the 14 years I worked with her, she commuted from Cobourg," he said. "That means driving through countless snow and ice storms and I can never remember her missing a concert or a rehearsal."
Besides her dedication, she had a great sense of humour and was always a happy part of the symphony," according to Mr. FAST.
Principal oboist Barbara BOLTE sat in front of Ms. GRAVES for the past five years. They became very good Friends especially after the two of them spent an evening playing Baroque trio sonatas together. "We were playing for fun but we realized we spoke the same language."
Ms. BOLTE found her colleague "amazingly talented" and a very strong player. "When I had to play a solo and she was playing the bass part underneath I found it wonderfully supportive."
In March, Ms. GRAVES played "an absolutely pristine and beautiful Mozart bassoon concerto" in a Kingston Symphony Orchestra concert according to Mr. FAST. "It was astonishingly good, perfect really."
She finished the season and everything seemed fine. Of course, it wasn't. Mr. SOLWAY had begun noticing "weird little things" in his wife's behaviour last November, but thought it was depression.
It wasn't until the Kingston Symphony Orchestra's summer concert at Fort Henry in July that her musical colleagues spotted any problems.
"Susie didn't play as well as usual," said Ms. BOLTE. " She was making mistakes and she hardly ever played a wrong note or came in late." After the concert Ms. GRAVES complained that her eyes hurt and that she couldn't see very well, but she thought a new prescription from the optometrist would fix her up.
Mr. FAST agrees that "there were a few bobbles" in her playing. He knew that she wasn't feeling well and he thought she would soon be back in top form.
In fact, she was suffering the effects of a tumour that had began in the emotional centre of her brain, according to Mr. SOLWAY. She quickly became sicker and, at Mr. SOLWAY's urging, she was taken to Toronto for treatment. She underwent an operation to remove much of the tumour and then Mr. SOLWAY took her home to be with their teenage son Jesse, a double bass player, in Cobourg.
Susan Elizabeth GRAVES was born on May 7, 1954 in Norwalk, Connecticut. She died in Cobourg, Ontario, from a brain tumour on September 26, 2005. She was 51. She is survived by her husband Kenny SOLWAY, her son Jesse, her parents and a brother and his family. The Kingston Symphony is dedicating its per formance of Verdi's Requiem on Sunday, November 27, at the Kingston Gospel Temple, to her memory.

GREENBERG, Leonard Herman B.Sc., M.Sc., PhD, and professor emeritus
The physics community lost a respected long time member and teacher on November 10, 2005. Len GREENBERG taught in the physics department at the University of Regina for 38 years, including 5 years as department head, retiring in 1990. Co-workers recall him as an extremely good physicist, instrumental in bringing the small department recognition as one of the best in Canada in the field of sub-atomic physics. Len's forte was writing, however, and his two books, "Discovery in Physics for Scientists and Engineers" and "Physics for Biology and Pre-med Students" have been called literature as well as science, and were translated into several languages. In his early career, Len was deeply involved in the development of the cobalt bomb for radiation in cancer therapy at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, and he worked for many years at the Allan Blair Memorial Clinic in Regina. Although not an astronomer, Len developed and taught the first astronomy classes at the University of Regina.
Len was born on October 5, 1925 in Calgary, Alberta, one of four children of Anna and Oscar, who had emigrated from Sweden. Len obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the University of Alberta and PhD from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon in the mid-1950s. He moved to Regina in 1952, and lived there until 1972, when he moved to the village of Silton. Summers were spent on Kenderdine Island in Lac La Ronge, where Len found a retreat and idyllic environment for his writing.
Len was predeceased by his parents, his sister Evelyn and his brother George. Len will be sadly missed by Ann, his wife of 32 years. Len will also be missed by his sister Bernice CRAIG (Cameron) of Cranbrook, British Columbia and his first wife Joyce HENDERSON of Red Deer, Alberta. Len was an inspiration to his children Lynnea WILLIAMS (Bruce) of Regina, Pauline WATSON (Bob) of Oakville, Ontario, Sherrill BARKER (John) of Red Deer, Alberta, David GRONBERG of Regina, Ian GREENBERG (Sue) of Vancouver, Dan McKAY of Edmonton, Stephen McKERRACHER (Donna) of Drake, Saskatchewan. Len also leaves thirteen grandchildren: Notanee and Roshi (Regina), Kevin and Andrea (Oakville), Natasha and Nathan (Red Deer), Sarah (Scarborough), Chelsea, Eliza and Matthew (Victoria), Ayla, Sterling and Milan, and three great grandchildren. Len is already deeply missed by his dogs Suzy and Gus.
The funeral will be held at Speers Funeral Chapel, Regina, at 1: 30 on Tuesday November 15. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a bursary to be set up in his name, directed to the University of Regina, External Relations, 210 North Residence, S4S 0A2, Toll free 1-866-667-7500 in Canada or the United States.

McFARLANE, Stacey Elizabeth Michelle
(August 23, 1989-August 20, 2005)
It is with immeasurable sadness we must announce a truly remarkable young lady has been honoured with her wings and granted her wish to breathe free. Stacey lived with Cystic Fibrosis all of her life. Twenty-two months of waiting for her double lung transplant and after many sacrifices, Stacey received her much needed transplant on July 17, 2005. Unfortunately, Stacey encountered many unexpected setbacks and complications and on Saturday, August 20, 2005 at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Stacey Elizabeth Michelle McFARLANE left to be an angel with her loving and dedicated family holding her near and with her at her side. She was the precious, cherished and inspirational daughter of Mike and Kelly, sister and best friend to Brandon, Jessica and Blair. She was extremely loved by grandparents Marg McFARLANE and Darlene and Harland McKAY. Predeceased by grandpas Allan McFARLANE (1977) and Daniel MARTIN (2000.) She was adored by all her aunts, uncles and cousins. She was able to leave a place in the hearts of everyone she had the pleasure to meet. The city of Sarnia always had her in their thoughts and prayers over the last three years and she had many devoted doctors, caring nurses and remarkable Friends at both London Health Sciences and Toronto Hospital for Sick Children that we will never forget. Although she had Cystic Fibrosis, she lived life to the fullest. She was an inspiration in that she had a positive outlook and the most unbelievable zest for life. She was forced to make many sacrifices at a very young age and never looked back. She enjoyed to speak with and for various organizations and always managed to leave her spunky loveable zest with every soul she touched. Stacey's pink presence always made us smile. Her compassion for children, her unwillingness to quit and her true appreciation of the gift of life will remain with us all. She was an angel on this earth with a message for us all. Her lifetime Friends in Sarnia and the wonderful kids and adults in our Toronto and Pickering area were able to enjoy her maturity and wisdom. She will be missed by her Friends at the Sarnia Kinsmen Club, the workers in the Chemical Valley, her Friends at the Sarnia Jail, Lambton Ford and various churches and sororities in Sarnia, Errol Road School, Northern Collegiate and Saint Mary Catholic School in Pickering. Remember "Life is not measured by the number of breaths that we take but by the moments that take our breath away." We will love you forever. Thank you for what you have given each of us. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2005 at 11: 00 a.m. from Smith Funeral Home, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, Ontario, 519-542-5541. Interment in Lakeview Cemetery. Friends will be received at the Smith Funeral Home on Thursday evening from 7 to 9 p.m. and again on Friday afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m. and evening from 7 to 9 p.m. Sympathy through donations to the Cystic Fibrosis, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto and S.O.D.A. would be appreciated by the family.

Dearly loved mother of Barry Kent MacKAY, and the late Charles Frederick MacKAY, and loved wife of the late Charles (Dave) MacKAY, passed away at Markham-Stouffville Hospital, son Barry at her side, on Thursday, September 8, 2005. She asked that her age not be given, but those who knew her know she lived a full, long life and one full of much pain, but also triumph, and an intense involvement in the things that mattered to her and an enormous love of life, of the trees, the sky and the birds in her beautiful garden. Phyllis devoted most of her life to caring for sick and orphaned birds, dogs and other animals who she loved without reservation. She received certificates and awards through her life for her pioneer work in wildlife rehabilitation. They meant a lot to her. She was one of the first women bird banders in Canada and the first woman elected to the Toronto Ornithological Club. She is greatly mourned by her canine companions, Laura and Kali, who were always at her side. At her request, there will be no funeral. Cremation has taken place and a private interment will occur at a later date. Phyllis wrote "God sees the little sparrow fall" on her last note to Barry and would have loved it if anyone wishing to remember her would send a donation to Project Jessie, Animal Alliance of Canada, 221 Broadview Avenue, Suite 101, Toronto, Ontario M4M 2G3, or to Solitudes, at P.O. Box 29, Kearney, Ontario P0A 1M0. A Celebration of Phyllis MacKAY's Life will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2005 from 12 to 8 p.m. at Mother's house.
