MacMILLAN, Evelyn (née HOPE)
By David M. MALONE, Page A16
World citizen, political observer, optimist, volunteer, friend. Born March 22, 1907, in Ottawa. Died October 3, 2005 in Ottawa, of pneumonia, aged 98.
Evelyn Hope MacMILLAN, a lifelong resident of Ottawa, lived and breathed its 20th-century history. She personified all that was best about her generation of Canadians: integrity, independence, optimism, faith and an enduring belief in the finer aspects of human nature.
Evelyn's father, John, owned Ottawa's principal bookstore; by the early 1950s it was Ottawa's oldest business. The Hope building on the Sparks Street Mall is still named for the family. Her mother, Ethel, a novelist, was a major figure in Ottawa's intellectual life, a close friend of prime ministers and indefatigable chronicler of developments in the Gatineau Hills, where they owned a summer home on Meech Lake. Evelyn grew up very much in the swing of things in Canada's capital.
Evelyn performed the remarkable feat of being close to both prime ministers R.B. Bennett, and W.L. Mackenzie King, each the other's sworn political rival. Her dining-room furniture was a gift from Bennett (Uncle Dick to her) and she saw a lot of Mackenzie King during the summer, when he would walk from Kingsmere to Meech Lake to visit with the HOPEs. She donated their correspondence with her to the National Archives years ago.
She remained much involved in the Meech Lake community. Hope House (with its own bay) is the oldest structure on the lake, still inhabited by younger generations of her extended family. In the 1950s, she moved from the main house to a more remote pine cabin, where she spent summers entertaining Friends and a succession of pampered dogs, never worrying about her isolation in the woods.
She still swam across the lake in her eighties, and she always walked to her appointments (weather permitting), no matter how distant -- until a careless cyclist knocked her over eight years ago, breaking her hip and initiating her physical decline.
Evelyn married Hugh MacMILLAN in her thirties and, although she much missed him when he passed away in 1972, her life was marked more by the enduring Friendships she forged with so many. Her concerns were closely woven into Ottawa's community life and its role in national politics, but she was also much travelled, setting off for Alaska, New York and Chicago with her parents in her teens, and, as was then the custom in a certain class of society, spending a "season" in London in 1925, to round off her schooling.
After Hugh died, she took to travel of a more adventurous sort, developing a particular fondness for South Africa, the Middle East and Australia. Long after others had shifted routinely to air travel, she continued to seek out ships that would take on passengers, much preferring the conviviality of extended ocean itineraries. Everywhere she went, she made Friends, many of whom she eventually hosted in Ottawa. She proved a wonderful ambassador for Canada in all of these ventures.
Having not herself faced the exhausting responsibilities of parenthood, Evelyn was much drawn to the young. Her funeral was attended by four generations of Friends, centred largely on her churches (she frequented several) and The May Court Club, an admirable charitable association of Ottawa women that has achieved so much for palliative and other kinds of care.
An exceptionally intrepid and generous figure, Evelyn expected the best of people. She believed in individual initiative and contributed much to the commonweal. Typically, she left all of her modest estate to several deserving charities that she also served during her lifetime as a volunteer.
She is survived by many, many Friends. They rejoice in her memory.
David M. MALONE is a friend of Evelyn.

HOPKINS, Rosemary
Peacefully on April 3rd 2006, Rosemary HOPKINS. Predeceased by her mother Joan CROWTHER and her brother John HOPKINS, she will be missed by her nephews Mark, William and Edward, her niece Katie and their families. Rosemary was born in Kasama, Zambia (Northern Rhodesia) in 1924. She was educated in England and in Switzerland, before returning to Africa again in her teens. During and after the war she served in the Women's Auxiliary Territorial Service, assisting in the decommissioning of the British armed forces and the reconstruction of Europe. She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1953, to find a new life. She joined the mining firm Selection Trust, and as it grew in size she rose to an executive position at a time when few women succeeded at the executive level and in an industry where the culture was decidedly male. Circumstance meant she never received the education she both craved and deserved. She was a forceful woman of a strong intellect and a strong and independent character who learned the value of pragmatism. She settled into a small and much loved home in the Annex with Friends and many dogs, cats and plants that became the life around her. She loved to cook, read and garden. Her favourite retreat from the city was a cabin she built herself on an island on Lake Joseph in Muskoka. Thanks to the staff at Thorncliffe Place who looked after her during her final years in Ottawa and to those Friends who cared for her through her final years in Toronto. Special thanks to her special Friends the Goodhands who continued their Friendship and kept in constant touch with Rosemary while she lived in Ottawa. Thanks also to the staff of the Queensway Carleton Hospital. She had a long life and blazed a unique and determined trail through both hardship and success. We are thankful for the life that she lived. A celebration of her life will be held on April 22nd at 2 p.m. at the Pinecrest Remembrance Chapel, 2500 Baseline Rd. Ottawa (pinecrest-remembrance.com) Donations may be made to the Stephen Lewis Foundation for A.I.D.S. in Africa at stephenlewisfoundation.ca.

Ormond HOPKINS, Chaplain General (1925-2006)
Military padre who compared his job to being a mosquito in a nudist colony spent more than 30 years ministering to troops
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Ottawa -- Serving in Egypt 50 years ago was an eye-opener for Ormond HOPKINS, a padre with the Royal Canadian Army Chaplain Corps. Not only did he have to cope with the heat, sand and flies, he also had to adjust to the local culture.
On New Year's Eve, 1956, Mr. HOPKINS, an Anglican priest known as Hoppy to his Friends, had the opportunity of observing Egyptian culture at close range. The brass had booked two belly dancers from Cairo to entertain Canadian troops and, as a man of the cloth, he felt obliged to protest the salacious nature of the festivities. His appeal made no impression. His Catholic colleague, Father Schmidt, left in "great disgust."
For his part, Mr. HOPKINS decided to apply the hoary old adage, "if you can't beat them, join them!" After the dancers had completed their performance, they were escorted to the officers' mess to change out of their costumes. Mr. HOPKINS and another officer put their heads together and decided a second show was in order.
"[We] donned the belly dancers' costumes and jewellery, and after bathing Father Schmidt with their musk [the effect was akin to being sprayed by a skunk], we tripped into the mess on stiletto heels," wrote Mr. HOPKINS decades later in a family memoir.
The effect on the troops and their guests was electrifying. "The Egyptians screamed like banshees, and went for Herb and me, grasping at our most vulnerable parts. Until they were restrained, I am told that I performed a hilarious version of the Highland fling."
It was 1957, and Mr. HOPKINS was one of 800 Canadians sent to the Sinai Desert as part of the United Nations Emergency Force to secure and supervise a ceasefire between the Egypt and Israel. While in the Middle East, he travelled around the Holy Land and saw Mount Sinai, the Mount of the Beatitudes and St. Catherine's Monastery. But what he found most meaningful, regarding his faith, "was to walk the walk which He had walked."
Ormond HOPKINS grew up on his family's 40-hectare farm near Perth, Ontario, during the hard years of the Depression. After graduating with honours from Bishop's University in Lennoxville, Quebec, he was ordained an Anglican deacon in 1949. He served as a curate at St. Matthias's Church in Ottawa, until he joined the army in April, 1953.
Seven months later, Mr. HOPKINS found himself in Korea, ministering to the tough gunners of 4th Regiment, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. The ceasefire between United Nations forces and North Korea had been signed on July 27, after three years of fighting up and down the Korean Peninsula.
Mr. Ormond wasn't prepared for the "terrible devastation [and] dire poverty" he found. "Everything constructed of brick or stone had been levelled. Pusan was a city of huts constructed from metal ration containers. The stench was so high that you could smell the city from 10 miles away."
Retired lieutenant-colonel Scotty Lamb of St. Albert, Alberta., met Mr. HOPKINS when they were working at a hospital in Japan, before Mr. HOPKINS went to Korea. They remained close Friends for 50 years. "He was a very conscientious padre, very popular with the troops. He mixed with them quite well. He had the unique ability of reaching people."
Famous for delivering his sermons in a booming voice, Mr. HOPKINS had a clarity and certainty of faith, said his daughter Sareena. "When it came to his role as a chaplain, he saw no conflict between his Christian values and military service. This never wavered. My father believed strongly in justice and democracy and was a realist -- he was certain that military weakness would leave Canada vulnerable."
During the 1960s and 1970s, Mr. HOPKINS served at bases across Canada and in Germany. Busy seven days a week conducting services, writing sermons, supervising church committees, ministering to the sick and dying, going on field exercises with the troops, Mr. HOPKINS also counselled the suicidal and helped save marriages.
"[He also] carried the heavy burden of informing a soldier that their parent, spouse, or worst of all, child, had died, and getting them through that terrible time. He did this literally hundreds of times," said Mr. HOPKINS's son, Michael.
Canon Bill FAIRLIE of Ottawa's Christ Church Cathedral met Mr. HOPKINS when the latter was serving in Germany, from 1972-76. "He was a very capable churchman, [and] a very able soldier. He was very colourful, with quick wit. He loved a good party with interesting people. He was extremely loyal to the military, but he wasn't afraid to criticize it when necessary."
In 1981, Mr. HOPKINS was promoted to brigadier-general and appointed Chaplain General (Protestant) of the Canadian Forces. Suddenly, he was responsible to the chief of the defence staff for the moral and spiritual well-being of Protestant personnel in all the different branches of the military.
That was a big job, to say the least. He visited every base and station, supervised the 150-plus regular and reserve chaplains, and related pastorally to the troops. Mr. HOPKINS also officiated at military investitures at Rideau Hall and the national Remembrance Day observances in Ottawa. He also "argued vigorously, and I believe convincingly, for the centrality of moral and spiritual values in the definition of Canada's military ethos."
Mr. HOPKINS relished the challenges he faced in an increasingly secular world and was fond of comparing it to being a mosquito in a nudist colony. "We have unlimited pastoral opportunity," he said in 1983. "A civilian rector can't go into the factories or offices where his parishioners work and join them in their coffee breaks and go and live with them as we do."
Religious pluralism was also an important feature of Mr. HOPKINS's job. "In our caring ministry, religious doctrine and tradition are seldom factors, but in the ongoing life of worship and Christian nurture this is something that places limitations on us and tests our skills and ingenuity."
In 1981, Mr. HOPKINS was made an officer of the Order of Military Merit. Three years later, he retired from the Canadian Forces after 32 years of service. Too young to retire for good, he spent the next 10 years as rector of the parish of Bradford, Ontario, where he succeeded in doubling his congregation. As a result, he was named Bradford's first-ever Citizen of the Year.
"He also, in very quiet ways, touched many individuals and families. Often, in the middle of the night [he helped] someone in distress and many credit him for their lives. Dad was a rare combination of a strong and effective leader, someone with the gift of walking quietly through troubled times," said Sareena HOPKINS.
Ormond Archibald HOPKINS was born on August 18, 1925, in Perth, Ontario He died as a result of complications from an aneurysm on May 15, 2006, in Ottawa. He was 80. He leaves his wife, Ernestine, daughter Sareena and son Michael.

McDONALD, Eldon Williams
Passed suddenly and peacefully with family by his side at Providence Healthcare on Tuesday, February 7, 2006, in Toronto, after years of serious illness, at the age of 88. Loving husband of the late Hazel McDONALD. Dear father of Heather (Mike,) Karen (Ron,) Mel (Mary), and Brian (Louise). Devoted grandfather of Lisa (Stephen), Angela, Ryan, Katherine, and Johanna. He will be remembered by his nieces and nephews. Eldon was predeceased by his brothers Tom and Melvyn and sister Jennie. Eldon was born on a farm in Balcarres, Saskatchewan on January 20, 1918. At the age of 16, on the death of his father, he went to work to help support his mother and siblings. Prior to World War 2, he met Hazel HOPKINS, a nurse, when he was in the hospital for a minor injury. They married on November 23, 1943, while he was on a leave from the Navy. After the War, they bought a turkey farm outside of Victoria, British Columbia. Their first child was born in 1947. In the early 1950's Eldon went into sales and was very successful - as salesman, recruiter, trainer, and district manager. As a result, he and his family moved from city to city across Canada to start and/or build up sales offices. The last move was to Toronto in 1962. Eldon and Hazel were proud and loving parents and devoted grandparents. Family was the most important part of their lives. For years, they drove annually to Vancouver and back visiting family and relatives along the way in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Wonderful Sunday dinners for the entire family were a regular event all their lives, looked forward to by all. Eldon willingly volunteered to help family and Friends with anything he could throughout his life, and he and Hazel especially looked forward to any babysitting opportunities with their grandchildren. When Hazel became ill with Alzheimer's, Eldon was her sole caregiver for years, keeping her comfortable and happy at home. Eldon was a free spirit with a zest for life. He loved people and he loved to laugh. He was a real positive individual with a wonderful way of making others feel good. Much to the delight of his children, he had a soft spot for animals, returning from a sales trip on several occasions with a small puppy or kitten that needed a home. Eldon loved being outside, working in the garden with flowers and vegetables. This interest extended to his children's gardens as well! He was an avid reader and a great conversationalist in a broad range of subjects - history, geography, science, philosophy, current events and novels. He loved big band music, and he and Hazel loved to dance - in their younger years on roller skates! For years they enjoyed bowling in a league with their Friends. Though very ill, he never complained. Eldon will be sorely missed. Friends may call at the "Scarborough Chapel" of McDougall and Brown, 2900 Kingston Road (east of St. Clair Ave. E.) on Monday, February 13 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Memorial Service will be held for Eldon and Hazel at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 115 St. Andrew's Road, Scarborough on Tuesday, February 14, 2006 at 1 p.m. If desired, donations may be made to The Scarborough Hospital - General Division Attention Hemotology and Oncology Department or the Alzheimer Society. Online condolences may be made at www.mcdbrown-scarb.ca
