Teacher devoted to children
Kay McLAUGHLIN saw her career as an 'investment' in children.
By Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Mon., March 3, 2008
Wilma DE ROND credits her Grade 8 teacher Kay McLAUGHLIN with helping her through a difficult time.
"She was the first female teacher I had since my mother passed away," said DE ROND, education director of the London District Catholic school board. "I had already gone through a lot of change.
"She was just a steady hand and that's what I needed," DE ROND said.
McLAUGHLIN, whose career in education inspired others to follow, died February 24 She was 92.
Her daughter, Kathy FRAUMENI, is a school principal. Granddaughter Kate VAUTHIER teaches and Mary Kate FRAUMENI, another granddaughter, aspires to teach.
An elementary teacher in the Catholic system, then a three-time trustee on the board that preceded the London District Catholic school board, McLAUGHLIN's life revolved around children, those who knew her said.
She trained to become a teacher in Saint John, N.B., where she was born in 1916.
She met her future husband, Maurice, at a skating rink one frosty day while a student and the couple later kept in touch.
They married in 1940 and and raised five daughters and a son. The young family moved frequently with each job transfer Maurice had while dealing trucks and farm equipment.
"We were a close family because we moved together," recalled her daughter Patricia McLAUGHLIN of London.
They settled in London in 1967 where Kay McLAUGHLIN taught at Notre Dame, St. Paul and Saint Anne schools.
When she retired at 65, McLAUGHLIN decided to run for the school board. She ran three times, all successfully.
In 1982, in her third run, she told The Free Press her plan was to "protect my investment in the children."
Her experience as a teacher and a mother paid dividends later, recalled former board education director Ken REGAN.
"She brought all of those perspectives to the board. They were terrific bits of information," he said.
Seldom seen without a hat, McLAUGHLIN's wit was sharp, her manners impeccable and her arguments almost always pointed, said Regan.
"She certainly added some decorum to our deliberations," said trustee John FERRIS, now the board's chairperson.
McLAUGHLIN encouraged parents and teachers to take part in public meetings and have their voices heard in a boardroom where they often felt intimidated.
McLAUGHLIN's presence was also felt at her parish, now Holy Cross, where she was president of the Catholic Woman's League and a key fundraiser. Among her projects was an annual bake sale, begun 30 years ago, to repair public works in South America.
The fundraiser continues to this day and has raised "tens of thousands" of dollars, Patricia McLAUGHLIN said.

BARCLAY, Alexander P.H.
Passed away peacefully on June 16, 2008 in Toronto at age 95. Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1913, and emigrated in 1926 from Kirkcudbright, Scotland to Hamilton, Ontario. son of Jessie and Rev. William BARCLAY, D.D. (past Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Canada). Also predeceased by his beloved wife Helen Eileen (née MacLAURIN,) daughter Susan Eileen, and sister Morna (Petrie). Survived by his son William Alexander (Davoud), Susan's life-partner Valerie, and his dear friend May MacLEOD.
He earned his B.A. in Chemistry and Physics at McMaster U. and his M.Sc. in Communications and Physics at Cornell U. His early research career as a design engineer focused on radio tube, radar, theatre audio, and broadcast transmitters with Canadian Westinghouse, Northern Electric, Research Enterprises, and Rogers Radio Tubes. This was followed by a distinguished 24-year career with Philips Electronic Industries (1947-1971) culminating as General Manager of the Professional Equipment Division, and by later terms as General Manager with Ryerson Applied Research, and as Manager Electrical Engineering for Canada Post in Ottawa. All of these were significant professional achievements in his time, of which he was quietly proud.
Golf was his outside passion throughout his life, and he was exceptionally talented at it. He played until his knees finally quit on him, not that long ago.
All who knew Dad knew him as an uncommonly gentle, patient and modest soul: caring and kind with Friends and colleagues. He remained a gentleman and a gentle man to the end; everyone looked up to him. Special thanks to his many recent Friends and the dedicated staff at St. Hilda's Towers, Toronto, for whom he cared affectionately. Particular condolence and gratitude to his close friend May Macleod, who brought him so much infectious happiness in his later years. Family and close Friends will gather informally.
