BURDOCK, Joan Ewing (Colbourne) - Passed away peacefully on January 17, 2009 after a brief illness, surrounded by her family, in Dartmouth General Hospital, aged 87 years. Born in St. John's, Newfoundland, on November 26, 1921, she was the daughter of Thomas and Irene (Ewing) Colbourne. She was predeceased by her parents, her husband George, sister Ruby and brother-in-law Ted Davis, and sister-in-law Blanche Colbourne. She is survived by her three children: Bill, Janis (MacGillivray) and Ron (Margaret Douma); two grandchildren: Christiaan MacGillivray and Heidi (Glenn) Hubley; their father, Keith MacGillivray; great-grandchildren: Jordaan MacGillivray and Kiannah and Kamryn Hubley; brothers: Alexander "Sandy" and John Colbourne, and John's wife Jean Colbourne; and by many cousins, nieces and nephews. Her family and the Church were the two centres of Joan's life and to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren she was everything. A niece observed that she was the glue that held her extended family together, with phone calls, cards, letters and e-mail. She took delight in the accomplishments of every member of her family and wanted to hear of their every adventure. Curious and full of life, Joan loved to travel, a passion she was able to pursue in her later years with trips to Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, New England, and around Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, always in the company of her family. She was active for many years at St Thomas' Church and with the Girl Guides at Bishop Spencer College in St. John's, her alma mater, and then with the Altar Guild and ACW at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Dartmouth. There are few things at Holy Spirit, and fewer people, that she did not touch in some way. Her sense of humour, beautiful smile and ready laugh charmed everyone she met.
Joan's family would like to extend sincere thanks to the doctors and staff of the Dartmouth General Hospital, and especially to Dr Stavros Savvopolous and all the wonderful nurses on 3 East, for the care, comfort, and support they provided to all of us during Mom's last month of life. Although the stroke she suffered in December deprived her of her voice, it could not take her personality. Her twinkling eyes and her smile were irrepressible. These are what we will cherish in our hearts always.
A memorial service in celebration of Joan's life will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 24, at the Church of the Holy Spirit, 1 Regency Drive, Dartmouth, N.S., B2Y 1Z7 A reception will follow at the church.

Mom never asked for anything of herself except to be with her family, relatives, friends and acquaintances. She had a deep consciousness for the needs of others. This was reflected upon by the many who knew Evelyn during her life. In her later years this shone brightly through the gifts she redirected to many, such as the Gathering Place and her adopted children and families in Africa.

OLDFORD, Willis Clifford - Aged nearly 97 years died peacefully, though still unexpectedly, early Saturday morning on January 24th, 2009 at the Headwaters Health Care Centre in Shelburne, Ontario. He was born March 8, 1912 in the Newfoundland outport of Squid Tickle (now Burnside), the second of Esau and Minnie Oldford's five children and their first surviving child - his sister Ida lived only nine days. Recently predeceased by his brothers Appleton Cleves Oldford and Eli Conrad Oldford, he is survived by his brother Frederick Wilbur Oldford. Growing up in a Newfoundland outport before and during the great depression he faced many challenges. As a fisherman he sailed five summers on the Labrador and was once shipwrecked. He was twice widowed before age 35, married first to Annie Brown Dyke (mother of Edward Shirley Oldford) and then to Mabel Green (mother of Clifford Frederick Kitchener Oldford); both died around age 25. In 1948, he married his third wife, Emma Louisa Rumboldt (nee Fillier), herself a widow and mother to three young children (John French, Beulah Allison and Eileen Gladys Rumboldt; a fourth child, Richard, died as an infant). Together they combined families and left Newfoundland for Toronto as immigrants to Canada. There they had a child, Richmond Wayne Oldford, the sixth in the family. When Emma passed away in 2002, they had been married for 54 years. He worked hard through his working life and was always generous with his time and skills. A master carpenter, he took great pride in his work and supervised many construction projects including the hangars at St. John's airport (those still in use), Canada's first enclosed tennis courts at the Toronto Cricket Club, Stratford's war memorial park, Mt. Pleasant's Crematorium, Lefroy's Arena, as well as numerous swimming pools, pre-schools, and other public buildings throughout Toronto. He never lost his connection with Newfoundland ("home") and visited and fished regularly up to the last summer of his life. He is already terribly missed by his surviving children and their families: John Rumboldt, Beulah Batten, Ed and Irene Oldford, Eileen and Jim Harrison, Clifford Oldford, and Wayne and Nancy Oldford. He is survived by 22 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. He will be missed by the many other family members, friends, neighbours and others whose lives he touched, both in Ontario and in Newfoundland. All are welcome for visitation Friday 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at the Newediuk Funeral Home, 2058 Kipling Avenue, (Etobicoke) Toronto.

POHJOLA, Erkki - 1931 - 2009. The world lost an exceptional conductor and music educator on Monday past (January 19, 2008). Erkki Pohjola of Finland passed away after a long illness. Erkki was a professor emeritus of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. His story and his contribution are both remarkable. Erkki was a physical education teacher and young parent in Helsinki when in 1964, he happened to attend a music education conference in Budapest where he was utterly inspired by two famous music educators - Zoltan Kodaly and Carl Orff. On Erkki's return to Finland, he decided to go back to university and train as a music teacher (already being an amateur musician). On graduation, he returned to the Tapiola School where he had formerly been the gym teacher. He formed a school choir which very quickly became recognized for its beautiful free sound and musicality. Then with his "instrument" the Tapiola Choir, he forged new links with leading contemporary composers, and encouraged them to write for the children's choir as a unique and significant artistic vehicle.
Erkki also was responsible for the reform and development of a bold new music education movement for Finland's public schools, which became an international model of excellence. He authored the new program and also led the movement to enshrine the new system in legislation. The Tapiola Choir made over 20 recordings and these were a model for many choirs in the world. In effect, he was responsible for the global children's and youth choir movement which is still flourishing around the world today.
In 1986 he established the international choral festival Sympatti. In 1999, he initiated the Songbridge project, a UNESCO sponsored initiative. Songbridge brings together fine young choirs from disparate cultures to live, work, play and perform together, each choir bringing a premiere composition from one of the great composers of each culture. The theme of each new work is based on some aspect of peace and/or social justice. The composers must write the songs with distinct and unique parts for each participating choir, so no choir can perform their own song by themselves and all sing in the language and cultural style of the other.
Erkki has had a strong and long connection to Newfoundland and Labrador. He was brought here by Shallaway (formerly NSYC) for a month-long residency in 1996. When he and his wife Aino arrived at our airport, the children greeted him singing the Finnish national anthem "Finlandia" in English, while waving their Finnish flags which they made themselves. On his departure a month later, these same children (now in grad school) bid farewell by singing "Finlandia" in Finnish. Shallaway subsequently toured Finland in 1999, has hosted other Finnish musicians here and has been involved in three Songbridge projects. Erkki visited and worked in St. John's many times since, and was always a great source of encouragement and facilitation in Shallaway's international growth. Festival 500 gave him their "Builder" award for his involvement and encouragement over the years.
Erkki Pohjola was a marvellous model for young people everywhere. He was a visionary, but just as importantly, an "actionary". His confidence and belief in youth empowered them well beyond the music. Erkki believed profoundly that music is a powerful force for building and sustaining understanding between people of all cultures. Since Erkki's passing, messages from Shallaway alumni have been pouring in. Their words provide the most fitting of tributes, as we say a last goodbye and treasure memories of this most remarkable person. "The times we spent with Erkki were some of the most potent and monumental. His musical influence on me was immense ... we learned to LIVE loudly, to live boldly, and to make our mistakes boldly, knowing that this isthe only way to discover, and hence learn from, them. He was an incredibly warm and dedicated man, whose love of music and youth will resonate onward in how we sing, and how we live (Shallaway alumna)
