Norm KELLY,62: Teacher, friend, actor
Norm KELLY: educator, amateur thespian, 'good best friend'
Despite debilitating illness, he retained his interest in others
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
In the late summer afternoons, Norm KELLY was always on the pretty front porch of his flag-strewn house atop a little hill on Linnsmore Cr. in Toronto's east end. He'd be smiling and waving to the people streaming up from or toward the Greenwood subway station, and usually they'd be smiling and waving back.
Many of them stopped to talk to the friendly man in the power wheelchair, probably because it was hard to miss the notice printed on hot pink or neon green or orange computer paper pinned to both sides of the garden pergola right at the sidewalk.
"Norm on the porch says hello," it read. "Please say hello back."
On Fridays, he changed the signs. These ones read: "Please join us for tea and cookies on the porch."
Admittedly most of the people who did join them there were neighbours, but as one of them told KELLY and his wife, Barbara DATLEN- KELLY, they hadn't known one another before the couple moved onto the street in 1996. KELLY and DATLEN- KELLY invited all their neighbours over for a barbecue the minute they finished their renovations that year. After that, everyone would gather at their home every Christmas for their open house as well as for their annual barbecues.
In 2003, when the barbecues were becoming too big for DATLEN- KELLY to handle, they decided to have a dinner party every Saturday night from late June until the Saturday after Labour Day for a rotating cast of 12 to 16 people from all aspects of their busy and varied lives.
"Norm was just a very friendly guy," said DATLEN- KELLY.
He was more than that.
He was a community builder who not only organized his own funeral, he attended it.
He died at 62 on September 4 of multiple system atrophy, a crippling Parkinson's Plus disorder of relatively late onset, which robs people of their mobility and ultimately of their speech.
KELLY was 54 and a year away from retiring when he noticed he was having difficulty working the computer mouse.
It was a particularly devastating illness for KELLY, who had been a guidance counsellor with the Toronto Catholic District School Board and a real presence at Jean Vanier secondary school where he, 6-foot tall and 250 pounds, danced "The Sugar Plum Fairy" in a tutu at the annual Christmas assembly to cheers and howls from students.
"He was the highlight of the show," said KELLY's friend, former school principal Mike LEROUX. " But he also had the total respect of the kids."
KELLY also performed in 21 Broadway shows put on by Staff Arts, a group of talented and musical teachers and Catholic school board employees. His first show was Fiddler on the Roof; his favourite show was Guys and Dolls, where he was Nicely Nicely Johnson and got to sing "Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat."
He had never been a star; "Norm would say he was first on right, back row," said DATLEN- KELLY. He was too sick to be in this year's Beauty and the Beast, but he was in the four shows before that in his wheelchair. For Oliver in 2003, DATLEN- KELLY managed to find an antique wheelchair for him to appear in.
"He loved being on stage, everything off stage and everything backstage," said his friend Mary Jane McKEEN, who was part of his set painting crew. "I think the theatre gave him focus and kept him going."
He grew up in the Dundas/Dufferin area of Toronto in an apartment over the bakery run by his Scottish parents and began teaching after a one-year post-high school course. He studied at nights, earning a B.A. and eventually a masters' degree in education.
In 1972, he and his then wife, Mary Ellen, and daughter Sheila moved to University City, one of many young families attracted to the innovative townhouse and apartment complex south of Finch Ave., one of the city's first planned communities.
The developers had designed the complex with a vehicle-free promenade to encourage a feel of community, but it was KELLY who made that a reality. For 17 years he was head of the condo board, earning him his nickname the Mayor of University City.
It used to take him an hour to fetch a jug of milk from the store that was five minutes away because he stopped to talk to everyone.
He was always organizing something -- winter carnivals, dances and huge Canada Day celebrations. More than 5,000 people used to turn out, recalled former neighbour Terri HOPE, making it the second largest July 1 celebration in Ontario, if not Canada.
"Norm was the epicentre. He ran the best all-candidates meetings I've ever been to," she said.
He spearheaded the community's political fight to keep nearby lands for parkland and, with DATLEN- KELLY, helped run the Four Winds Sentinel, the longest running community-operated newspaper in North York until it folded after 17 years in 1993.
Married in 1995, he and DATLEN- KELLY had been together since 1979 and had just really moved into their new east-end neighbourhood when he began noticing symptoms. In the winter of 2000-01, he and HOPE wrote a letter to 50 Friends -- "Norm came up with the initial 50 or so names. Who the hell else could do that?" HOPE exclaimed -- asking for volunteers for a circle of support helping him with speech therapy.
For four years, they kept up that circle. "I probably got more out of it than Norm did," said his friend LEROUX. They'd vary the speech exercises by riffing about George W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice to the tempo of "Who's On First." And Terri HOPE's husband Bob searched out naughty limericks for KELLY's exercises.
"Norm KELLY had this amazing group of Friends because he was such a good best friend," said Bonnie BERESKIN, the Baycrest Centre's speech therapist who helped coordinate the Circle of Support. "It was sort of like putting money in the bank. He had given a lot over the years."
BERESKIN said she'd been worried that people might drop out when KELLY's condition inevitably worsened. "I thought they would be afraid, but instead they devised new ways of helping him and started doing other things that were needed."
They organized cleaning crews for the house, brought over casseroles, took him places, and continued the therapy sessions even during the last two months of his life when KELLY finally lost his ability to speak.
"I would say Norm dealt with this in a state of grace," said DATLEN- KELLY. "He was determined to do everything he possibly could."
But last year, he decided it was time to move into a nursing home. He put up a sign on the pergola -- "I have chosen to go into a beautiful nursing home because I can no longer stay safely at home" -- and people were upset when they read it.
But KELLY always knew he would be coming back to the neighbourhood. For his funeral he specified he wanted a street party, the music he had loved to sing, and he wanted the hearse containing his remains to stop by and stay awhile. And that's exactly what happened.
"As we turned the corner, I could see the tables and chairs on all the driveways. Someone had put big plastic flowers out and I thought Norm would get such a kick out of it," said DATLEN- KELLY. "It was like he was welcomed back home. It was beautiful."

Dorothy Forrest MacKEIGAN
By Wendy MacKEIGAN and Jonathan BARKER, Tuesday, November 1, 2005, Page A22
Teacher, world traveller, wry humorist, mother, grandmother. Born May 28, 1928, in Amherst, Nova Scotia Died April 9 in Toronto of pancreatic cancer, aged 76.
Dorothy discovered the magical world of books at a young age. Her father died when she was 3 and she gravitated to a life of the mind and was often scolded for retreating to her favourite hideaway in a tree with a cherished book.
Her reading paid off when Dorothy won a scholarship, which she applied for secretly, at age 15 to Dalhousie University. While studying English literature, the campus "Sweater Girl" was swept off her feet by the football captain, mining engineer and larger-than-life Cape Breton character, "Dangerous Don" MacKEIGAN. They married and moved to Sudbury, Ontario, where Don joined Inco.
After raising her four much-beloved children, Linda, Wendy, Dallas and Forrest, Dorothy resumed a career of teaching, completed her Masters degree and developed a reputation over 29 years as one of those rare, great, dynamic and inspirational teachers. Always ready to stray from the rulebook, her trademark was to communicate her passionate and unconventional views about the essence of a book and she was genuinely interested in what every student felt about the book.
The refuge and glue in her life was the family cottage at Trout Lake, Ontario There were no rules, and Dorothy and Don both instilled a sense of total freedom and independence in the children. Wendy remembers lying on the dock at a young age and playing a typical Dorothy game: "Name me one great artist who wasn't messed up."
Every summer, Dorothy slowly pulled up the reeds from the bay, dressed in one of her famous bathing suits, which might or might not cover the essential body parts. Don thought endless reed-pulling a waste of time, not realizing Dorothy felt it was great exercise. He appeared one day with some of his mining buddies, planted sticks of dynamite and blew up not just reeds but a part of the bay. Dorothy just shook her head and calmly went from "reeding" to reading, and then took up staining the cottage as her annual exercise. She was always reading several books at once, and her grandchildren calculated that she read more than 15,000 books.
Don never stopped loving Dorothy, but, unfortunately, spirits took hold of his spirit and Dorothy saw no option but divorce. This split ultimately led her into her world-traveller phase.
She spent the 1990s teaching in Istanbul, Turkey, and Kuala Lumpur. She travelled at every opportunity: Africa, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea and much of the Silk Road -- often alone.
She eventually returned to live in Toronto to be near her children and her growing gaggle of gifted grandchildren, surrounded by strange relics from her travels. She instilled in her children and extended family a love of academic excellence, travel, curiosity, stimulating conversation and books, an appreciation for irony and an aversion to ironing.
Dorothy taught English literature to Chinese students and continued to travel, but every summer she returned to Trout Lake. Our own family always wanted her to be there with us for our annual summer vacation; no one could relax like her, and it was contagious. She read, swam, played bridge and Scrabble, talked openly, insightfully and humorously to her grandchildren about life and books, threw herself with total passion into singing Hank Williams's Cold Cold Heart or Willie Nelson's Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain, had a few glasses of wine, shared a midnight sauna and swim in the cool lake and gazed up at the stars.
Wendy and Jonathan are Dorothy's daughter and son-in-law.

BOYD, Ermaleen (COWARD, née SUNNATO)
Ermaleen Peacefully at the Queensway Carleton Hospital in Ottawa early Sunday, January 9, 2005, following a six month battle with lymphoma. Ermaleen was born in Toronto on November 2, 1926 as Ermaleen SUNNATO. As a young girl she took her mother's name as Ermaleen COWARD when her parents separated. She married Fred BOYD in St. Alban's Church, Toronto, August 4, 1951. After her mother died, Ermaleen supported herself through the late years of high school and through nursing school at the former Western Hospital, Toronto, where she graduated in 1950. She remained at the Western Hospital as an operating room nurse until her marriage. Moving to Ottawa after marriage she worked with the Victorian Order of Nurses until first son Ronald was born. Brian followed two years later. The family moved to Peterborough, Ontario in 1955 where Andrea was born, and then to Deep River, Ontario in 1959. During the years the family lived in Deep River, 1959-1967, Ermaleen worked part time at the Deep River Hospital until Melissa was born. In 1967 the family moved to the new community of Kanata, now part of greater Ottawa. She soon became involved with the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association and for over two years printed thousands of pages of the newsletter, the Kanata Standard, on an old mimeograph machine in her basement. Subsequently she became the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association treasurer and was named Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association Citizen of the Year in 1976. She also became one of the early volunteers at the Queensway Carleton Hospital even before it was built in 1976. Over the next two decades she managed the hospital's medical library, as a volunteer. About the same time she became involved with the Ottawa Committee of the Canadian Girls in Training initially as a nurse at the Canadian Girls in Training Camp Kalalla near Alcove, Quebec. Subsequently, for the past three decades she served as treasurer of the three inter-connected groups, the Canadian Girls in Training Ottawa Committee, Canadian Girls in Training Camp Kalalla management, and Camp Kalalla (operation). Over the past decade she has served several terms as secretary-treasurer of the Region 9 of the Hospital Auxiliary Association of Ontario, which is composed of the volunteer auxiliaries of almost all of the hospitals in eastern Ontario. This involved doing much of the arrangements for the group's spring and fall conferences. She was awarded the Ontario Bicentennial Medal in 1984 for her volunteer activities. She is remembered with love by her children and their spouses: Ron (Brenda;) Brian (Cindy;) Andrea MacKELLAR (Hugh) and Melissa; by her five grandchildren, Jennifer, Nicole, Christopher, Stephanie and Gregory; by her sister Joyce O'NEILL and brother Charlie COWARD; and by her husband of 53 years, Fred. A Memorial Service will be held at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street on Friday, January 14, 2005 at 11 a.m., followed by a reception. Interment of Urn in the family plot at Saint John's Cemetery in Kanata, in the spring. In lieu of flowers please consider a donat ion to the charity of your choice.
