TOPLEY, Enid Mary (née TAILOR/TAYLOR)
Mrs. Enid Mary TOPLEY passed away very peacefully in her ninety-second year at the Beverly Centre in Calgary on Friday, April 22, 2005 with her daughter Marilyn at her side. She chose to leave us on the very same day as her beloved husband of fiftyseven years Herb did, seven years earlier, even within the same hour. Enid is survived and will be deeply missed by her daughter Carol JARVIS (George) of Nanoose Bay, British Columbia; son Steve TOPLEY (Debra) of Tsawwassen, British Columbia; daughter Marilyn COSTA (Renzo) of Calgary; as well as her dear grandchildren, Drew JARVIS (Sara,) Andrea JARVIS (Nimi LANGER,) Heather TOPLEY and greatgrandchildren Jordan and Rafael, all of Vancouver. Born in Leduc, Alberta on November 19, 1913, Enid lived a long, full life in Calgary. In her formative years, she traveled extensively with her family on their famous road trips throughout North America. Her father, G.L. TAILOR/TAYLOR, founder of Taylor Signs, being an accomplished artist was capturing the magnificent landscapes as they set about exploring new horizons. These trips nurtured her lifelong interest in nature, camping, hiking and outdoor pursuits. This introduction to both art and travel continued throughout her whole life. Sports played a prominent part in her life with swimming, skating, golfing and ultimately speed skating, winning two provincial championships in that sport. As an adult, curling became the new undertaking and she enjoyed many years playing at the Glencoe Club in the ladies and the mixed leagues. When she decided to hang up the 'broom', she participated for many years on the administrative side of curling starting at the Glencoe and working her way up to various positions travelling around Alberta and the country in the capacity of chairperson of both the Alberta Senior Ladies Curling Association and Southern Alberta Ladies Curling Association. Enid had a modest nature and yet was very independent, a woman ahead of her time. She was an astute businesswoman in real estate and property management. To Enid, her family was everything and her primary focus. Her children were her pride and joy and this was extended when grandchildren arrived. In her later years, the biggest thrill of all was becoming a great-grandmother to Jordan and Rafael. Friends and relatives are welcome to join the family in a celebration of Enid's life at a reception at the Glencoe Club (636 - 29th Avenue S.W., Calgary) on Saturday, April 30, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations made directly to the Canadian National Institute of the Blind (15 Colonel Baker Place Nebraska, Calgary, Alberta T2E 4Z3) would be appreciated by the family.

Man dies as police raid home
By Sharda PRASHAD, Staff Reporter, Page B3
A Toronto man is dead after a struggle with police in his home early Friday morning.
The provincial Special Investigations Unit is probing the death of Paolo BOTELHO, 34, in what appears to have been a drug bust that went wrong.
Police had no comment on the incident, while the Special Investigations Unit, which investigates incidents involving police that result in serious injury or death, released only a brief statement.
But a man who identified himself to reporters as the dead man's cousin angrily denied BOTELHO had any involvement with drugs.
The incident began shortly after 1: 30 a.m. Friday, when police with a drug-related search warrant entered a duplex on Mulock Ave., in the St. Clair Ave. and Keele St. area, according to the Special Investigations Unit statement.
"The officers were attempting to arrest a man inside the home and became involved in a struggle with him," the statement read. "At approximately 2: 07 a.m., police requested an ambulance because the man was having trouble breathing."
The man died at St. Joseph's Hospital.
There were several officers and other people in the house at the time, said Rose BLISS of the Special Investigations Unit.
Tony COSTA, who identified himself as BOTELHO's cousin, said yesterday at the scene that he is furious with police.
"Paul had nothing to do with this," COSTA said. "He doesn't even smoke."
BOTELHO lived in the house with his wife and six children, as well as his sister and her family, COSTA said, adding that BOTELHO worked as a landscaper and delivery person.
The house had a child's hand-made paper Christmas tree displayed from an upstairs window yesterday.
A post-mortem examination is scheduled for today.
The last incident involving Toronto police to be probed by the Special Investigations Unit took place Wednesday, after a speeding minivan, apparently being pursued by police, lost control and injured two men on Finch Ave. E. in Scarborough.

Tony COSTANZA, Hairdresser: 1928-2005
Immigrant from Italy took up barbering in Ottawa; for decades, he trimmed the locks of the important and not so important
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, February 7, 2005 - Page S6
Ottawa -- For 45 years, ambassadors, prime ministers, viceroys and thousands of less-celebrated men had their hair cut by Tony COSTANZA at the Roma Barber Shop on Elgin Street in Ottawa. Holding court behind his favourite barber chair -- the first on the right when you came in -- he dispensed advice, jokes, opinions and stories to a never-ending stream of customers.
Everyone felt welcome, from working stiffs to the late Ray HNATYSHYN when he was governor-general. Pierre Elliott TRUDEAU dropped by, as well as judges from the nearby provincial courthouse and cadres of lawyers from surrounding office buildings. National Defence Headquarters isn't far away, so he served soldiers, airmen and sailors of all ranks, too.
All his clients received the same, no-fuss treatment. The interior of the tiny shop, which also houses Tony's Smoke Shop, is decorated with postcards, military cap badges and framed photos of favourite clients. The late Conservative politician George Hees is up there, along with former chief of defence General Ramsey Withers, and Paul Robinson, a former U.S. ambassador to Canada.
Retired warrant officer Roger DESPARDE was one of many clients who made Friends with Mr. COSTANZA. "I was in at least once a week. I got to like him and we got along very well. He was like a brother to me, he confided in me."
The shop is an oasis of civility in an uncivil world, a place "where people came by to talk," said David HOMA, a long-time client who recognized Mr. COSTANZA for his acts of kindness. "From time to time, someone would come in for a haircut but couldn't pay. He'd thank them for their business, even though he knew they wouldn't be back to pay. I'm sure that happened a hundred times."
Originally from Sicily, Mr. COSTANZA served in the Italian border police in the late 1940s and then spent five years working in the coal mines of Lancashire, England. In 1955, he immigrated to Canada equipped with little English and just $20. A year later, he sent for his wife, Genoveffa, and son Alex.
Settling in Ottawa, he found work wherever he could. In 1955, he took up barbering. After working for others, Mr. COSTANZA set up on his own in 1960. Nine years later, he moved across the street to the present location and never looked back.
It wasn't easy, though. Six days a week, Mr. COSTANZA opened the shop at 7 a.m. and spent the next 13 hours there. He only took a vacation twice, returning to Italy in 1976 and 1988.
On a good day, he served about 10 clients, or roughly 100,000 haircuts in a career. Now and then, he felt obliged to exert professional influence. "If a guy wanted a particular style and my father thought he didn't have the hair for it, he would tactfully suggest something else," said son Mario COSTANZA. " The guy would usually walk away happy."
The late 1960s and early 1970s weren't kind to Mr. COSTANZA. Long hair was fashionable and most males no longer wanted a "short back and sides" every two weeks. He waited patiently for better days and played a lot of checkers.
However, things changed when son Alex COSTANZA began work at the shop. "I thought it would be a good idea to learn the trade and help my father out. We got along, didn't have any disagreements."
His younger brother Mario had already come to know the shop in the 1960s. He had a job there sweeping floors after school. "It was a thrill to be there and see my father at work and listen to him shooting the breeze with his customers. At the end of the day, he'd throw me a quarter."
In 1978, Mario decided to make it a family threesome. "I liked the relaxed atmosphere [so] I decided to follow in my father's footsteps."
On January 10, Tony COSTANZA cut his last head of hair. He went home early after deciding he did not feel well, and now his chair sits unoccupied and his brushes, scissors, clippers and combs lay untouched.
Gaetano (Tony) COSTANZA was born in Sicily on February 13, 1928. He died in Ottawa on January 13. He was 76. He leaves his wife, Genoveffa, sons Alex and Mario, and his sister, Concetta.

Beloved son of Raymond and Ramona, Dear stepson of Nelson DAVIE, passed away as the sky was brimming with diamonds. Irreplaceable brother to Barbara, Brenda, Carol, Tom, Sharon, Sheila, Elizabeth, Teresa, Larry, Vincent, Gregory and Angela. Dennis left this world surrounded by his family, with music in the air and with spiritual comfort given by Father Dan. Sisters and Brothers-in-law, Nieces and Nephews were present to give unconditional love and support to Uncle Dennis. Dennis was, himself, a dear nephew of many loving aunts and uncles from London, Brantford, Ingersoll, and Toronto.
With heartfelt thanks to the kind Doctors and Nurses at University Hospital in London- And to Dennis' treasured Friends, Neisha, Anne, Mandy, Ryan, Peter, Shannon, Rick, Sam, June, and Barry. All of those who bestowed kindness upon Dennis over these years are truly blessed. Also, to Mary Shipp and "A and P Dave", both of whom are the essence of compassion in human nature.
For those who never found it within their hearts to reconcile with a "one of a kind" person like Dennis, please listen to the words of an artist with whom Dennis found a certain affinity throughout his life here on earth:
Imagine all the people living life in peace,
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one,
I hope someday you will join us, and the world will live as one.
John Lennon
Dennis, we love you and will miss your greeting cards, not to mention your phone messages, urging us to "call the magic number that says it all."
We realize that your path in life was not always paved in gold. You faced each challenge with an amazing sense of humour and intelligence. And we pray that our Dad and our sister, Sheila, are now embracing you "somewhere over the rainbow."
All you need is Love, Love, Love…,
Sharon, along with the COSTELLO Family

Hospice protester succumbs to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
By John MINER, Free Press Health Reporter
Ten days after his treatment sparked a protest against management of a London A.I.D.S. hospice, Dennis COSTELLO has died.
"I knew myself that this would be really hard on him, but it made him feel like somebody loved him and the world wasn't such a bad place," said COSTELLO's younger brother, Larry.
Dennis COSTELLO, 53, was a longtime resident of the John Gordon Home in London, but ran into conflict with the home's management earlier this year.
At one point, the home cut off air conditioning and banned family visits.
He took his case to the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal, the province's rental watchdog, which ordered the John Gordon Home to immediately install air conditioning for COSTELLO and remove all barriers to his visitors.
Breathing with the help of an oxygen tube, COSTELLO participated in a protest July 13 when about 20 people marched silently in front of the Pall Mall Street home, carrying placards calling for the firing of senior management.
Larry COSTELLO said the root of the problem between his brother and management of the home was a personality conflict.
"Dennis was a strong personality. If you gave him any respect at all, he would do the world for you," he said.
"He was the guy who sent everyone birthday cards, every niece, every nephew. That's the kind of person he was."
Dennis worked for Canada Post in London in his twenties and was later transferred to Vancouver, where he did well until the death of his father. Larry COSTELLO believes the death triggered his brother's schizophrenia.
"He took life on his own terms and ended up on the streets at one point in Vancouver. That is when the family stepped in and we went out to Vancouver and found him and took him to the hospital. He was really sick with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome at that point and almost died."
The family brought him back to London and the John Gordon Home. There he bounced back, but still faced challenges, Larry COSTELLO said.
"He had to struggle his whole life. Living with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and being a homosexual, you are not as accepted as anybody else. He had a hard road."
COSTELLO was taken to University Hospital on July 17, suffering from pneumonia. On Friday, he took a turn for the worse and died the following day surrounded by family.
He is to be buried today following a 10 a.m. funeral mass at St. Peter's Basilica.
Larry COSTELLO said he would like his brother to be remembered for trying to make a difference.

PASHBY changed the face of the game
Players blinded in 1974 season -- before his efforts to make masks mandatory in minor hockey: 43. By the 1978 season: 0
By Glen COLBOURN and Lois KALCHMAN, Sports Reporters
When Dr. Tom PASHBY began searching for hockey helmets for his sons in 1959, he found only flimsy shells better suited for use as fruit bowls than safety equipment.
PASHBY devoted the next 46 years of his life to making helmets stronger and face protection mandatory in Canada and around the world. In doing so, he quite literally changed the face of hockey.
PASHBY, the game's foremost safety pioneer for the last half-century, died at his Leaside home yesterday surrounded by his family. He was 90.
"Thousands of kids have been saved from serious injuries because of him," said Frank SELKE Jr., a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame selection committee and a long-time friend of PASHBY.
"Unfortunately the masses don't know how much work this man has done and that is the tragedy."
PASHBY's labours haven't gone completely without recognition. He was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 1981 and inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 2000, among two dozen national and international awards.
An ophthalmologist, PASHBY launched his crusade to prevent catastrophic injuries in sports after his eldest son Bill suffered a concussion while playing in a Leaside house league game in 1959. Bill smacked his bare head on the ice and was rushed to the Hospital for Sick Children.
"He took what was potentially a very dangerous incident involving me and as a result has saved many other young people from waking up in an ambulance like I did," Bill PASHBY told the Star. "It was scary."
The elder PASHBY already knew about the seriousness of concussions, having suffered one as a high school football player.
"I was out like a light. I don't remember any pain," PASHBY recalled last month. "I do remember going to East General Hospital. I said I was all right, got out of the car, went to walk and fell flat on my face."
After Bill PASHBY's injury, the senior PASHBY forbade his two sons -- Bill, 13, and Bob, 11 -- from playing hockey again without a helmet. It was a hard rule to enforce.
"All I could find were these crazy things made out of cardboard," PASHBY told the Star in 1983. "There was a lot of junk out there."
So PASHBY, a consulting physician with the Maple Leafs, got forward Bert Olmstead to help him import a polycarbonate helmet from Sweden.
"They called Bob 'Caesar' the first time he wore it, but the other parents caught the fever after that game," PASHBY said.
That's believed to be the first time a player wore a helmet in the Toronto Hockey League (now the Greater Toronto Hockey League) and Bob PASHBY's original "white eggshell" headgear has gone to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
But even the early Swedish helmets were unsatisfactory to PASHBY, who began seeking ways of testing and improving them.
"The Canadian Amateur Hockey Association said if I would set a standard they would make (helmet use) mandatory," he recalled this summer. "And so I did."
That was the beginning of a long second career as a hockey safety innovator -- "a hobby that blew up into a big job," PASHBY said when he was inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.
In 1975, PASHBY was named chair of the Canadian Standards Association committee that approved hockey and box lacrosse equipment, a position he held for two decades. His influence was felt almost immediately. In 1976, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association ordered that all amateur players wear Canadian Standards Association-certified helmets. In 1979, the National Hockey League made helmets mandatory for incoming players.
PASHBY also pioneered the development of visors and wire facemasks. He took great pride in the number of blindings they prevented.
In the 1974-75 season, before facemasks were mandatory in minor hockey, the number of players who suffered a permanently blinded eye in Canada was 43. By 1978, the number among players using Canadian Standards Association-certified, full-face protection was zero.
"He affected a lot of people," said Murray COSTELLO, who, as president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, worked with PASHBY for three decades.
"You knew he was right in what he said."
PASHBY continued his crusade for safer hockey until his last days. He used Vancouver Canucks' forward Todd Bertuzzi's attack on Colorado's Steve Moore in 2004 to call on the National Hockey League to ban all hits to the head. The International Ice Hockey Federation, U.S.A. Hockey and Hockey Canada had already adopted such a rule -- at PASHBY's behest.
Over the years, he also pushed to ban unsafe moulded goalie masks, introduce neck protection and disallow hitting from behind to reduce spinal injuries. He set up the charitable Dr. Tom Pashby Sports Safety Fund, which has raised approximately $600,000 for research and education and annually confers a $10,000 award for outstanding contributions to preventing catastrophic injuries in sport.
"He has had phenomenal impact on amateur hockey," said Greater Toronto Hockey League president John GARDNER.
That impact is evident in PASHBY's personal collection of hockey safety gear, which shows the development of facemasks and helmets through the decades. Earlier this year, the Hockey Hall of Fame selected 50 items from the collection for the Hall.
PASHBY was born into a family of butchers in east-end Toronto in 1915. He grew up in the Danforth and Pape area and graduated from University of Toronto's medical school in 1940. He married high school sweetheart Helen CHRISTIE in 1941 just 10 days before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force. In the military, he conducted eye tests on would-be pilots, bombardiers and tail-gunners and became interested in ophthalmology.
In 1948, he started his own practice in Leaside, which his son Bob joined and still runs.
Helen died in 2003 of colon cancer. PASHBY is survived by their three children, Bill (Elizabeth), Bob (Penny) and Jane, as well as six granddaughters, one grand_son and a great granddaughter.
The family is planning a private funeral.
