MACDONALD, Brian Macdonald - Obituary | Print |

MACDONALD, Brian -

Macdonald_BrianDied peacefully at his home in Stratford, surrounded by family on November 29, 2014 at the age of 86.

Survived by ballerina, muse and wife (since 1964) Annette (av Paul), and son Wyatt. Born in Montreal, Quebec, son of the late Ian and Mabel (Lee) Macdonald. Predeceased by his brother Ian, and his first wife Olivia (Wyatt) 1959. 

Internationally respected, award-winning director and choreographer for stage and television, of musical theatre, opera and ballet. Among the first recipients of the Order of Canada (1967), elevated to Companion (2002); Governor General's Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement (2008), the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal (2012) and more.

Brian was a child actor on CBC Radio and choreographer/dancer in the early days of CBC TV. While studying for a B.A. in English at McGill University, he took ballet classes with noted teachers Gerald Crevier and Elizabeth Leese, and worked as music critic for the Montreal Herald (1947-49). In 1951 Brian became a founding member of the National Ballet of Canada. He founded the Montreal Theatre Ballet and directed the legendary McGill satirical review, My Fur Lady.

Brian's association in the 1950s and 1960s with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet as resident choreographer established both his and the company's international reputation. Brian was artistic director of The Royal Swedish Ballet (1964-67), Harkness Ballet in New York (1967-68), Israel's Batsheva Dance Company (1971-72), and Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal (1974-77).

As a proud Canadian Brian was fiercely committed to collaborating with Canadian artists; composers Harry Freedman, R. Murray Schafer, and Gilles Vigneault, and visual artists and designers such as François Barbeau, Ted Bieler and Walter Redinger. His Rose Latulippe, for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in 1966 was the first truly Canadian full-length ballet, and the first to be telecast in colour. Some of his best known ballets are Time out of Mind, Aimez-vous Bach?, The Shining People of Leonard Cohen, and Tam ti Delam. Requiem 9/11, was a personal artistic response to the destruction of the twin towers in New York. Set to Verdi's Requiem it premiered at the National Arts Centre in 2002 to mark the event's first anniversary.

Of his 19 productions for the Stratford Festival, his Gilbert and Sullivan collaborations with designer Susan Benson – enjoyed particular success and the 1982 Mikado toured in Canada, the US and to London, garnered two Tony nominations in New York. In 2012 The City of Stratford and the Stratford Festival honoured Brian with a Bronze Star which is now placed in the sidewalk in front of the Avon Theatre.

Brian was closely associated with dance at the Banff Centre in Alberta for more than 45 years as a choreographer, teacher and mentor, and ultimately as director. His book, Dancing in Thin Air: Looking Back on Sixty Years of Dance at the Banff Centre was published in 2007. His passion for music, brought him also to direct opera. His 1979 production of Cendrillon for the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, with Frederica von Stade and Maureen Forester, stands out as does his critically acclaimed Madama Butterfly presented this October, for the sixth time, by the Canadian Opera Company.

Though ailing from cancer, Brian again returned to direct the revival. His last public appearance was for the opening-night curtain calls. 

Funeral Service will be held in Stratford on Saturday, December 6th.

As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations in Brian's memory can be made to PAL Stratford.

GUISSO, Phyllis (nee Schaller) Guisso - Obituary | Print |

GUISSO, Phyllis (nee Schaller) -   "Express Condolences"

March 10, 1918 - November 28, 2014

Phyllis died just as she wished - peacefully and comfortably, after a very short illness, and after a full and fruitful life. With her family at her bedside and surrounded by those she loved, she entered into grace fully confident of a warm and welcoming embrace. Her unwavering faith in God was a lifelong inspiration to all who knew her, and a comfort to those who remain behind.

She was predeceased by Joe, her husband of 66 years, and by her son, Michael.

She is survived by her children, Lazarus, Richard (Bernie), Jo-Ann (Lynda), John (Diane), and Greg(Kelly), and her grandchildren, Melany, Jody, Michael (Tomoko), Isaac, Rhys, Katee, Brittany, Nicole, and Angelina. She took great joy in her four great-grandsons, Kaito, Takato, Hiroto and Vander.

Also sadly missed by her brother, George Schaller, who was always there for her, and with whom she shared a love of baseball and many a Sunday morning breakfast. Jean Bertoni was the most faithful of friends, and a treasured part of her life. She was also close to Father Phil Sherlock of St. Clement's Parish. They frequently laughed together, and he provided great comfort to Phyllis and her family on her final day.

Phyllis was a gifted woman who excelled as a wife and mother, as an educator, as a musician, as a volunteer to several causes, and as an example to many. Generous of spirit, she gave much, never expecting a return.

As a lifelong resident of Cambridge and for the last six years, of the Fairview Mennonite Home, she touched numerous lives and those who returned her many kindnesses in the last years of her life are too numerous to mention.
She will be missed for a long, long time.

Funeral mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at 11:00 am at St Clement's Roman Catholic Church, 745 Duke St, Cambridge.

Messages of condolence may be sent to tlittlefuneralhome.com.

At Phyllis' request, no flowers please. In her memory, please perform an act of kindness for someone close to you, or make a donation to a charity of your choice.

IDE, Arlene Marguerite (Miles) Ide Obituary | Print |

IDE, Arlene Marguerite (nee Miles) -

Following a severe fall at her Scarborough home on November 18th, 2014, Arlene Marguerite Ide suffered a heart attack on November 27th, while recovering at the Dunfield Retirement Home in Cambridge, Ontario. She passed away the following day, November 28th, at St. Mary's Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario.

Arlene was predeceased by her husband, Thomas Ranald Ide, in 1996.

Born in Toronto on January 18th, 1932, Arlene Miles attended local elementary and high schools before beginning her civil service careers at Queens Park. Her quick intelligence and meticulous attention to detail were soon noticed at the Department of Education, where she rose to coordinate the province-wide activities of the Department`s district school inspectors.

She married educator and broadcaster Ran Ide on April 14th, 1967, taking on a household that included his mother and two teenage sons. This she did with both sensitivity and a unique sense of humour that ranged from the witty bon mot to down and out slapstick. More than a love match 'made in Heaven,' the marriage was a true partnership.

Arlene's insatiable curiosity and enthusiasm for learning stimulated her husband's 'restless' intelligence. She encouraged him to take on increasingly challenging projects, which included heading up the fledgling organization now known as TV Ontario. In 1979, Ran and Arlene established T.R. Ide Consultants Inc.

Arlene loved people. More interested in their character than how they confined themselves to convention, her friends were from all walks of life. No push over, she seldom held her punches. Praise from her more than made your day.

Family meant the world to Arlene, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She leaves her sister Muriel McFarland and her family, her step-sons Richard, John, and Douglas, and their families.

'Mum' was a champion of the arts and sciences; should you wish to make a donation in her memory, please choose a charity of your choice.

Family will receive friends at Oakview Funeral Home, Oakville on Wednesday, December 3rd from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. A service to celebrate Arlene`s life will take place at 1:00 p.m. Interment in Thunder Bay at a later date.

Kress_BruceWith great sadness, the family of Bruce Kress announces his passing on November 25, 2014 at the age of 85 at home (Nithview in New Hamburg) after a long journey with Parkinson's disease.  Bruce always said, "I have Parkinson's, but it doesn't have me" and that is how he lived his life.

Bruce's wife June (Hoffman) predeceased him in May of 2009. 

Bruce is survived by his children: Randy (Beth) of New Hamburg, Linda (Jim Paul) of Wilmot Centre, Tim (Aleda) of Clinton, Dan (Irene Stuiver) of Grimsby, Elizabeth (Mark Reuber) of Cargill and Rebecca (Douglas Ives) of Orono, Ontario as well as his grandchildren:  Lee, Dane (Erin), Brett, Eric (Veronica), Joshua (Celynn), Cody (Melissa) and Chloe Kress, Emily Mewett, Megan (Jamie Albrecht), Emily, Jillian (Derek Power) and Daniel Reuber, and Dashiell and Sammy Ives.  Bruce's great-grandchildren are Gabriel and Violet Kress, Carter and Stella Power, Leelind, Devon, Dakota, Grace and Jacob Albrecht.   Bruce is also survived by his brothers Don (Marlene) and Wayne (Pat) Kress, his sisters-in-law Reta (Carl Hoffman) and Virginia (Roger Weiler) as well as many nieces and nephews.

Bruce worked for 37 years at Uniroyal Tire Division in Kitchener and had his own painting and interior decorating business.  Bruce was a man of deep Christian faith and attended Doon Pentecostal Tabernacle, Kitchener Gospel Temple and the New Hamburg Christian Centre.

Bruce and June resided in Wilmot Centre for over 44 years and then lived for several years at Brucelea Haven in Walkerton and then at Nithview Nursing Home in New Hamburg.  In his later years and with his work behind him Bruce took up his youthful passions becoming reacquainted with playing pool, his harmonicas and fishing.

Thank you to staff of both Brucelea Haven and Nithview who gave great care and wonderful friendship. 

Visitation Friday, November 28 from 3-5pm and 7-9pm and Saturday, November 29  from 2-3pm at the HENRY WALSER FUNERAL HOME, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener.
