Wenda M. Lyons ('44)
Submitted by Jane Tisdale ('89), Fine Arts
conservator, Owens Art Gallery
Wenda M. Lyons graduated with a Bach-
elor of Fine Arts degree from Mount
Allison University in '44 and worked as an
assistant teacher in the art department for
a year after she graduated.
Unlike most art students, Wenda kept
many of her drawings, designs, sculp-
tures, and jewelry from her classes. In '09
she generously donated a selection of
her student work to Owens Art Gallery.
In particular, the gift included handmade
silver bracelets and brooches along with
her original sketches and designs for the
jewelry. Although her degree was in Fine
Arts, she also took courses in applied
arts such as leatherwork and metalwork.
Both departments operated within the
Owens Art Gallery at that time and Wenda
recalled the "dark, damp basement where
we went to wash out our paintbrushes and
where the pottery students were working
with their clay, soaking it in a big bathtub."
Wenda always pursued her interest in art.
She worked in Calgary for two years with
a sculptor before returning to her home-
town of Moncton, where she designed
layouts for the advertising department at
the T. Eaton Co. Ltd. She continued to work
there for 32 years, traveling at times in the
summer to England, France, Portugal, and
Greece. She was an active member of the
Moncton Art Society and the Riverview
Art Council and continued to paint "at
least every week" throughout her life.
Wenda enthusiastically maintained con-
tact with her friends from Mount A, par-
ticularly Doreen Hall (head of the string
department in Music '45-'50) and Sister
Elaine MacInnes ('44).
The silver bracelet that she made as a stu-
dent and donated to the gallery was on
display at the Owens this summer during
the Swan Pond, O Swan Pond exhibition.
Wenda Lyons died in Moncton Feb. 16 '12.
Warren Thomas Lindsay ('56)
Submitted by R.M. Sutherland ('55)
Warren died in hospital in Truro, NS,
in Aug. '12. He was born in Brookfield,
NS, and received his early education in
Brookfield and Truro. As a proud Mount A
graduate, he then headed west to Calgary
and had a productive 35-year career with
Imperial Oil Ltd. In '07 Warren and wife
Anne, son Michael, and daughter Trish
returned home to Nova Scotia. Warren
was an avid sportsman and sports fan,
and had an active and lifelong interest
in aviation. This good and kind man
will be sorely missed and well remem-
bered by his family and his many friends
and associates.
Janet (Horne) MacBeath ('59)
Submitted by her daughter
Nancy Fotopoulos ('83)
On Jun. 20 '12 Jan (Horne) MacBeath
('59) passed away after a valiant battle
with cancer. She is survived by her hus-
band Bruce ('59) and her daughters
Nancy (George) Fotopoulos ('83) and
Julie (Pierre) Gaudet, and grandchildren
Hanna, Zack, Allie, and Corinne. Jan was
a frequent attendee of Mount Allison re-
unions and also enjoyed close lifelong
friendships with several of her Mount Alli-
son alumni. After graduating from Mount
A in home economics, Jan became an
educator and volunteer in the New Bruns-
wick school system and an avid golfer in
both PEI and Florida. Fiercely proud of all
of her grandchildren, she was especially
pleased when Zack announced he would
be attending Mount A in the fall of '12.
