Elinor MELVILLE, 65: Friends were family
'She really gathered us in,' buddy says
Elinor MELVILLE, 65, brilliant scholar
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
She died as she lived, surrounded by Friends. Elinor MELVILLE never married ("Just lucky, I guess" she'd say if questioned), and when she died at 65 of cancer -- in the early hours of March 10 in the palliative care unit at Toronto Grace Hospital -- she had no known relatives.
Instead, she had Friends from two hemispheres, both of her careers and both of the countries where she chose to live during the past two decades.
Fierce Friends, loyal Friends, who wouldn't let her die alone, and who now feel doubly bereft because they lost someone who had become family.
"Elinor has had an incredible ability to create family; always a family of her own choosing," said Joan Harkness, a friend who uses MELVILLE and her circle of Friends as an example of one type of family when she teaches sociology at the University of Victoria.
"She had this talent; she really gathered us in," said Morris Thompson, an American journalist who rented and is now buying MELVILLE's beloved adobe home in Mexico. "Unlike the rest of us, she did not have to consider whether she liked Aunt Sally or cousin Mary when choosing the people in her life. She gave me the greatest compliment when she once told me I was like a really irritating younger brother."
An associate history professor at York University, MELVILLE was a brilliant scholar who wrote A Plague of Sheep, a pioneering work of environmental history in which she said that it was the introduction of European plants and animals in the 16th century that turned the Valley of Mezquital, an important valley north of Mexico City, into a desert in less than a century.
"She had a way in her academic life and in her personal life that she could make us look at things differently," said Thompson.
Elinor Gordon Ker MELVILLE was born in Papua New Guinea. Her father was a supervisor of British mines there; she and her mother caught the last flight out of the country before the Japanese invaded in World War 2 and went to stay with her father's only relatives, two spinster sisters living in Australia. When her father died four years later, her mother, tired of living under the matriarchal rule, moved them to New Zealand, where they lived on a sheep ranch. Mother worked as the district nurse and daughter learned how to ride horses and shoot.
Solitary and sickly -- MELVILLE told Friends she should have died about six times as a child -- she grew into a tall, mouthy adolescent who was tossed from three schools. Encouraged to be independent by her mother, who used to take her obstreperous daughter on her own dates as a romantic deterrent as much as a chaperone, she sailed for Newfoundland soon after getting a degree in physiotherapy in Sydney, Australia.
She later went back to school, receiving her B.A. from U of T's Scarborough campus in 1972, her M.A. and then her Ph. D. in anthropology from the University of Michigan. Her research had led her to Mexico 25 years ago, a country that charmed her. She told Friends she felt as if she had come home, that here was a country that fit her.
Using her small inheritance from her mother, she bought a lot in Tlayacapan, Morelos, in the hills about 95 kilometres south of Mexico City. She designed her adobe home and the subsequent guesthouse, where she always stayed whenever she had visitors. She took under her wing the family of her gardener, Augustine, paying for his children's education, and had a longstanding affair with a local man she called "the love of her life" -- but never stayed there longer than 10 or 12 weeks.
She always returned to Toronto, where she had her work and usually another house to renovate and decorate in rich, warm colours. She bought and sold five houses in 15 years. Her Friends remember rooms painted in bright blue and one in the colours of red, yellow and orange that looked as if it was on fire -- and recall one dinner party at which her guests had to crawl out a window to access the table set up on the deck.
MELVILLE was 6 feet, a dramatic, dashing woman with a penchant for hats and Eileen Fisher designs, who would moan with pleasure when eating a good steak and who never walked but strode.
"The world didn't move fast enough for her," said Ruth McGUINNESS, who admitted she found MELVILLE "daunting" the first time they met.
It was 2000 and the two were in Buffalo, undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Four of them became Friends (only two survived). They'd meet at 4 p.m. so MELVILLE could watch Tom Selleck reruns they made a pact that none would join a support group. "We decided we would have none of those people crying in their soup," said McGuinness.
But in 2002, MELVILLE was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. "She raged against the cancer; she didn't just fight it," said McGuinness.
She continued to teach three classes at York until the fall of 2004. Her Friends remember her lecturing a grad student as she was being wheeled down a hospital hallway on a stretcher. Last July she officially went on sabbatical.
Often she stayed with McGUINNESS and her husband, Rory, after a hospital stint, until she was strong enough to return to her own home. But after last Christmas, she was noticeably weaker and stayed with her friend Agueda SHUBERT, the wife of a York colleague.
SHUBERT was one of the dozen Friends who met in February to form MELVILLE's care team. They didn't all know one another, although they knew of each other. "She talked about her Friends to us all," said Mireya Cunningham. "She was always saying wonderful things about us to others."
There was no set schedule in place -- MELVILLE was still too independent to want that -- but there was a new intimacy with her. She let friend Mireya Cunningham, who describes herself as a "touchy" person, hold her hand. "There is a great degree of intimacy involved in being with someone who is ill. It's a world of little losses," said Ruth McGUINNESS.
As well as gains. "She taught me to cherish my Friends," said Jean LEVY, the department assistant at York.
On Thursday, March 9, McGUINESS sent out an email -- in English and Spanish -- and her Friends came flooding to the hospital. Her York colleague Jeannette NEESON read her a poem from a 1940s anthology; Thompson read Shakespearean sonnets. Tea was served and the conversation flowed all around MELVILLE, as she lay dying.
Her Friends held a memorial service for her in Toronto the following Tuesday at 7 p.m. It was 4 p.m. in Victoria, British Columbia where Joan Harkness was teaching her Sociology 100 class about Elinor MELVILLE.
"I put her death notice up on the overhead projector and talked about her," she said. "I wanted to be part of a community of people thinking of Elinor at the same time."
She told her students that this is the kind of impact one life can have, that this is what they can do. They can create a family they can create their own life; their life can be an act of creation just like hers.

Cop shot dead in Windsor
Two 18-year-olds are arrested after gunfire is exchanged in a Mac's Milk parking lot.
By Canadian Press, Sat., May 6, 2006
Windsor -- Residents here were stunned yesterday after witnessing a daylight shootout in a residential neighbourhood that ended with a veteran plainclothes police officer lying dead on a sidewalk and two teens in custody.
The victim was 37-year-old Const. John ATKINSON, a 14-year veteran of the force and a father of a six-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son.
ATKINSON was on duty when he spotted some suspicious men at a Mac's Milk convenience store and went into action, said Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD.
He was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire before the suspects ran off. Police later arrested two 18-year-old Windsor men. They have not yet been charged.
STANNARD said the community and police are outraged by the shooting, which is like nothing they'd seen before.
"Although we have had in our history three officers killed as a result of car accidents, to the best of my knowledge, this is the first officer in the history of more than 120 years of the Windsor Police Service that an officer has been murdered," he said.
One of ATKINSON's close Friends informed his wife of the shooting, which happened shortly after 2 p.m.
STANNARD, Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS and other members of the police force visited the officer's family.
"What do you say?" STANNARD said about speaking with ATKINSON's wife and two young children. "You do what your heart leads you with. It's a tragic thing. You share tears and you share hugs.
"The policing community, for those who don't know, is a very close-knit community and police officers were there and they'll share their times with the family."
The shooting unfolded before many witnesses, who were shocked by what they saw.
The owner of the Mac's Milk declined to comment on the shooting, saying she was worried for her life.
A store employee identified as Emma said she saw the two men in the parking lot when suddenly she heard gunfire.
"We heard gunshots and a guy was bleeding from his mouth, and then we were told he was a policeman," she said.
Dennis ROCHON said he was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots, which he first thought was a car backfiring. He went outside to investigate and saw the victim covered in blood and lying on the sidewalk.
"There was no movement," he said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
A man, who identified himself only as Terry, said after the shooting, the victim stumbled for three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up and he fell again."
Lloyd MENARD, who was in the store at the time, said onlookers couldn't believe their eyes or their ears.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
One local resident said people in the city will likely be shaken up as they are not used to gun violence, despite their proximity to the United States.
"This is very rare indeed for Windsor," said Patty HANDYSIDES of Windsor radio station CKLW. " Even though we are right across the river from Detroit, gun crime is low in Windsor, and certainly death by gun is very, very rare."
At least eight elementary schools and one high school in the area were initially locked down in the shooting's aftermath, keeping as many as 3,400 students indoors. A nearby day-care centre was also put under lockdown.
By 5 p.m., all students were allowed to leave, although they were told not to walk home alone or stop and play, said Supt. Steve SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER of the Greater Essex County District school board.
Nearby residents were also advised to remain in their homes.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGUINTY released a statement last night in praise of ATKINSON and the work of all police officers.
"The loss of one of our officers is a tragedy for all of us. I don't know that there are words strong or eloquent enough to capture the courage it takes to put one's self in harm's way, in order to keep others safe," he said.
