OXFORD, Kay Frances Clare (née DAVIDOVICH)
Mother, wife, teacher, college administrator, best friend to many. Born April 12, 1945, in London, England. Died February 8 of cancer in Toronto, aged 61.
By Dianne LOCOCO, Lynne KURYLO and Hilde ZIMMER and Earle OXFORD, Page L6
'I'm the luckiest person in the world." Days after being told that her cancer was inoperable, Kay, on impulse, took off to London for a long weekend. She was the Energizer Bunny, on the hop the whole time.
Kay's affinity for England was engendered by her English mother, Phyllis NASH. Kay's tenacity was engendered by her father, Stephen DAVIDOVICH. Stephen was a Canadian army officer in wartime London, where he met and married Phyllis.
"A wisp of air in a breeze," was how her father described Kay. She flitted from one social engagement to another, gracing hundreds of Friends with warmth, mirth and gifts of the Bruce Peninsula pottery she so loved.
How Kay shoehorned daily coffees, lunches, dinners with Friends and chats with shop clerks, bus drivers and students into her rigorous schedule as an administrator at George Brown College is a study in time management. She worked tirelessly for more than 40 years to facilitate access to education for new Canadians.
Kay's many years of volunteer work reflect her varied interests. A long-time student of Canadian history and heritage, she was a member of and volunteer at the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse museum. Patients in the palliative care unit at Saint Michael's Hospital loved Kay's natural warmth and caring. Her spirit will live on in the lively annual neighbourhood parties that she instigated.
Kay was a saint with a broad swath of wicked humour painted up her steel spine. After her first operation, in 2003, I called her husband, Earle, who said, "Kay's fine." He meant that he hoped Kay would be okay, so I thought Kay was fine and sent flowers with a cocky note: "Start eating. Get off the Calista Flockhart I.V. diet." Kay telephoned. "You don't know they removed 2/3 of my stomach, do you?" I didn't. "I have cancer." I didn't know that either. "The nurses are upset with you." Kay thought it was hilarious. For the next 3½ years, she would tease me about my faux pas and delight in my squirming.
The last time I saw Kay, her health was fading quickly. She was weak and couldn't talk for long. But she spoke of her unbridled love for and pride in her son, John Daniel. She spoke of how wonderfully caring Earle was and the "lovely" talks they were sharing. She whispered, "I'm the luckiest person in the world."
The day before Valentine's Day, St. Philip's Anglican Church was packed. It was a testament not to Kay's luck, but to her heart.
Kay's friend Dianne LOCOCO wrote this with help from Lynne KURYLO, Hilde ZIMMER and Earle OXFORD.

Born May 27, 1921 in Toronto, eldest of six children born in Canada to Dina and Petre FILEFF, former Greek and Turkish subjects, from Western Macedonian mountain village of Trsye, who immigrated after World War I and adopted the anglicized name PHILLIPS. Lived on Wilkins Avenue in Cabbagetown area of Toronto. Attended Sackville Street School and Central Tech. Attended St. Cyril and Methody Macedonian Orthodox Church. Lifetime member of Daughters of Macedonia and Trsye Benevolent Society. Raised through the depression, she worked as a housekeeper and seamstress, for room and board and going dancing with sisters “Vee” and “Annie” at the Palais Royale or Masonic Temple. During the early years of World War 2 she met, and fell in love with a gentleman of the Air Corps, then Royal Canadian Air Force Airman L.O. MALONEY, to whom she was wed in 1943, after he returned from radar duty in England. Helen joined Larry when he was stationed at Royal Canadian Air Force Station Bagotville in 1944. After Sgt. MALONEY's demobilization, they started a family, living in a flat on Balsam Avenue in the Beach area of Toronto. While in Toronto, the family were members of Saint Michael's diocese. In 1951 the family moved to Point-aux-Trembles area of Montréal and later to St. Michel (1953-1972) at the northeast end of Montréal Island. While in Montréal, the family were members of St. Brendan's diocese. In 1972, moved to Scarborough, Ontario. Following Larry's early retirement in 1978, Helen and Larry wintered in Largo, Florida for 28 years of well-earned recreation and leisure time. In 2003, Helen and Larry moved to the family estate near Meaford, Ontario. Helen was the consummate homemaker, a skilled manager, budgeter, purchaser, chef, knitter, sewer, clothier, seamstress, launderer, cleaner, practical nurse and psychologist. She made it all seem easy. To children she was a cub and scout organizer, protector, comforter, supporter and healer. To her peers she was a graceful dancer, astute bridge partner, champion bowler, occasional golfer and good fun to be with at social events. To her husband, Larry, she was a lifelong friend, companion, partner and counsellor. Larry says that Helen saved him from an unstable life pursuing impractical daydreams. Between 1945 in Toronto and 1963 in Montreal, Helen gave birth to six sons. It was the great regret of her life that she never had a daughter, and so it was that she had a special affection for her nieces, grand-daughters and great-granddaughters. Helen was, in a category she herself sometimes applied to people, a “giver”. She was a good person with commendable standards of conduct and morality. Helen was always concerned about the feelings of others, always ready to lend a helping hand, always ready with a kind word. There are very few like her. She will be missed. Service held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, 3 July 2007 at Gardiner-Wilson Funeral Home, 60 Denmark Street, Meaford, Ontario. (519) 538 2550 Visitation begins at noon. The family receives visitors at home following service. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Alzheimer Society.

She was a co-founder and defender of Ontario's McMichael gallery
With her husband, she was always ready to do battle with anything that threatened the collection. As the more knowledgeable, she was also responsible securing significant donations
By Val ROSS, Page S9
Toronto -- About 35,000 schoolchildren a year troop through the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario Until recently, a white-haired woman with a taste for artistic scarves would often greet them. Sometimes, she'd stoop down to pick up after them -- whisking away stray candy wrappers as scrupulously as if the gallery were her own house.
Once, it was. Signe McMICHAEL was one half of the couple who created the collection of works by Tom Thomson, Emily Carr, David Milne and the Group of Seven, and Inuit and Woodland art and sculpture. She and her husband, Robert, donated 200 paintings to the public in 1965, along with the house that contained them known as Tapawingo (Place of Joy) -- and the forest in which it sits, about 40 kilometres northwest of Toronto.
"The sense of home that pervades the place today is due to her," said Tom SMART, director of the McMichael. "That kind of feel is her legacy."
"Without this remarkable couple, there would be no gallery," wrote author Pierre Berton, a lifelong friend and defender of the McMichaels, in a letter to The Globe and Mail in 1981. "[They] gave the best years of their lives to the fulfilment of that dream. And when the dream was complete, they turned it over to the people of Ontario -- everything -- the astonishing collection of paintings, the unique log building in which they were housed, and the setting itself -- perhaps the most valuable piece of rural real estate in the province."
Mr. Berton, the champion, invoked the ghost of Canada's first prime minister and aimed his lance directly at Queen's Park, which had decided to close the gallery and the estate (and with it the McMichael's home), for two years.
"In the light of the ludicrous and contradictory statements being made on behalf of the gallery's board and the Government, it is pertinent to question the real motives of the bureaucrats," Mr. Berton wrote. "For none of the arguments has been convincing. As Sir John A. Macdonald once said, in a different context, 'It won't catch the blindest.' The suspicion lingers that the civil servants are trying to get rid of the McMichaels. The public, surely, will not stand for this shabby treatment. Every Canadian who has spent an afternoon at this unique and splendid gallery owes a debt to Robert and Signe McMICHAEL."
The McMICHAELs were always ready to skirmish with anyone they sensed who wanted to move the collection or the institution away from its founders' vision, with Robert doing the talking, and Signe frowning and nodding vigorously in the background.
Her family, the Sorensons, immigrated to Canada from Denmark in 1927. They arrived when Signe was 6, settling in the Peace River district of Alberta. Her mother, Anna Tera, died shortly after, leaving Soren SORENSON to bring up his three daughters, Astrid, Signe, and Helen, in the approaching Depression. Yet Signe always spoke of a happy childhood, with a pony, a dog cart and explorations on cross-country skis.
A good scholar with a prodigious memory, she graduated from Alberta College in the opening days of the Second World War and was hired into the communications branch of the Royal Canadian Air Force. With demobilization, she took jobs in commercial radio in Edmonton, Vancouver -- and then Toronto, where she met a tall, confident salesman who told her he was building a business that offered bridal photography services.
"When I first met her, Signe SORENSON was employed as a continuity writer at [Toronto's] radio station CKEY," Robert McMICHAEL wrote in his autobiography, One Man's Obsession. "Impressed with the care and attention she gave to writing and scheduling the brief, inexpensive bridal commercials I purchased, I found that I was also personally attracted to her. In spite of the small salary I could offer, I was able to lure her to work at my photographic studio."
This passage is one of the longest Mr. McMICHAEL wrote about the woman who would become his loyal wife for the next 54 years.
"The title of his book tells it all," said Geoffrey ZIMMERMAN, who was Ms. McMICHAEL's legal representative on the McMichael gallery board. "But the thing that always struck me was what a complementary partnership it was. Bob was full of bravado, he could bully or charm; Signe was quiet but methodical."
"I always felt he kept her under a basket," said Dennis REID, senior curator of Canadian art at the Art Gallery of Ontario. "And I always liked her sweet disposition and gentle heart."
The pair married in 1949. Two years later, Robert went to see some bush land outside Toronto on the Humber River (and here his prose becomes genuinely romantic): "My pulse quickened and I knew I was falling in love at first sight; an affair that would last a lifetime. That evening, as I tried to describe the forests and hills above the yawning valley with its twisted river… Signe smiled at me and, I could see, was making allowances for gross exaggeration."
But she fell in love, too, and they bought six hectares. As Robert's photography business morphed into packaging products targeted at the newlywed market, he travelled the continent, leaving Ms. McMICHAEL to handle the construction of their new house. Soon, they were wealthy enough to fill it with Canadian landscape art.
By the late 1950s, Tapawingo had become famous for paintings and parties, with neighbours such as the Bertons, and surviving members of the Group of Seven, the famed association of landscape artists that included Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. MacDonald and Frederick Varley. Tom Thomson was Friends with most of the members but died before the group was formed. Later, the group expanded to include L.L. FitzGerald, Edwin Holgate and A.J. Casson.
As it happens, Jackson and Varley lived out some of their final years at Tapawingo, and some members of the group are buried on the property.
In 1965, the McMichaels convinced the provincial government to take over Tapawingo's operating costs and create a public gallery. In return, they were given the unusual right to live on-site, all expenses paid, and to occupy two of the five positions on the gallery's board. In 1968, after more McMichael lobbying, the gallery won Crown status, which meant that gifts could be written off against donors' income -- a precedent for all art patrons in Canada.
One who gave to the McMichael was Colonel Sam McLAUGHLIN, president of General Motors of Canada. "I doubt that but for Signe's Friendship with Isabel McLAUGHLIN that the colonel would have given his collection," Mr. ZIMMERMAN said.
By 1980, the gallery had become a conservationist's nightmare. The couple was ousted so the building could be fireproofed, repaired and expanded. In 1981, Ontario taxpayers paid $298,544 to buy them a big new house in nearby Belfountain, but it wasn't the same. They were unhappy to be away from home. "We'd still rather have Tapawingo," Mr. McMichael said.
Another festering issue was the gallery's mandate. According to the original deal, it was to collect works by artists "who have made contributions to the development of Canadian art." But what is "Canadian art"? In 1996, after curators installed a modernistic steel-and-concrete sculpture by John McEwen on the long entrance drive where the couple had once planted saplings by hand, the landscape-loving McMichaels sued Ontario for breach of contract. In June, 2000, they won. Ontario passed legislation that restored their board positions and reaffirmed that the gallery's mandate lay predominantly in realistic imagery.
This was the art loved by Ms. McMICHAEL, in particular. John RYERSON, now director of the Varley Gallery in Markham, Ontario, chatted with her about the collection in the 16 years he worked at the McMichael. "She was the more knowledgeable," he recalled, "though profoundly overshadowed by Bob."
Mr. McMICHAEL died in 2003. "He was the love of her life," Mr. ZIMMERMAN said. "After, she was preoccupied with her memories."
But for as long as she could, he said, despite knee surgery, she would go to the gallery to greet the schoolchildren.
Signe Kirsten Sorenson McMICHAEL was born February 10, 1921, in Sandersig, Denmark. She died of heart disease in Toronto on Wednesday evening. She was 86. She is survived by her older sister, Astrid WRIGHT. She will be buried at Tapawingo beside her husband, amid the graves of the Group of Seven. The graveyard was created by the Province of Ontario and is restricted to members of the Group of Seven, their wives and the founders. The graves are laid out in a circle, with rocks from the Canadian Shield as headstones. Members of the group not interred there are Franklin Carmichael, Edwin Holgate, L.L. FitzGerald and J.E. MacDonald.
The funeral will be held at the gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario, at 11 a.m. on Monday.

MAIER, Karl Robert
October 9, 1933 Zeltweg, Steiermark, Austria - August 30, 2007 Scarborough, Ontario, Canada
Peacefully and with his family at his side, Karl was gently lifted to Heaven by angels after a long illness. Husband, best friend and soul mate to his wife Liesbeth of 53 years, outstanding father to sons Robert (Barbara-Anne) and Richard (Daniela), and to his loving daughter Monica (James); brother to Christl (Otmar) and Heinz (Christine) from Austria and Annemarie (Tony) of Germany. Opa captivated his 7 grandchildren, James, Natalie, Ryan, Erik, Olivia, Benjamin and Isabel with stories about nature and his youth. They will greatly miss his loving and caring guidance. Born in the mountains of Austria and a lover of the outdoors, Karl was an avid downhill skier, fly fisherman, hiker, forester, sailor, windsurfer and golfer. He treasured the cottage that he and Liesbeth built with their own hands on Chandos Lake Ontario. Karl passed these passions on to his children and grandchildren and to anyone who was fortunate enough to enjoy some time up at his 'Pleasant Point'. He came to Canada in 1953 at the age of 19 as a trained tool and die machinist and as an engineer from Voest Alpine in Liezen Austria, landing in Toronto working for English Electric (later General Electric Canada) building Canada's first nuclear turbines and retiring only this year as an entrepreneur and owner of PUMA Engineering, the company he founded in 1979. With a smile that could tame any wild beast, Karl had the ability to make Friends in any type of environment and those Friendships, spanning the globe, have lasted a lifetime. Over the years Karl was always proudly and stubbornly, fair and honest, black 'n' white in his dealings never grey. A special thank you to Karl's long time buddy, Doctor Ed MORAN of Millbrook, Ontario who came to visit every week. Ed was generous with his love and caring advice and the two enjoyed their weekly discussions about books, politics and the 'Black Hole' way out there. A memorial is planned for 2 p.m. on Thursday, September 6th, 2007 at McDougall and Brown Funeral Home, 2900 Kingston Road, Scarborough, Ontario M1M 1N5, 416-267-4656. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to Doctor Lorne ZINMAN, Neurologist at Sunnybrook Hospital for his ongoing research into neuromuscular diseases.
