DREW, Violet (June 14, 1973-March 24, 1990)
Heaven's Angel
You had a smile for everyone
You had a heart of gold
You left the sweetest memories
That we could ever hold.
To us you were some one special
What more is there to say
Except to wish with all our hearts
That you were still here with us today.
We think of you with love
As we have always done
We feel again the bitter blow
That never should have come.
Each morning we awake
Knowing that you are gone
No one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness
Our secret tears still flow
What it's meant to love you
No one will ever know.
They say time heals everything
But I know that isn't so
Because we hurt as much today
As we did 15 years ago.
Can you hear our thoughts or feel our pain
To grant our last wish to see you again.
Always in our hearts and never forgotten. Love Mom and family.

Gus BODNAR, Athlete, Coach And Salesman 1923-2005
In 1943, the handsome and 'dimpled darling' of the Maple Leafs was the quickest, slickest thing on skates when he set an National Hockey League record for the fastest goal scored by a rookie
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, July 9, 2005, Page S9
Vancouver -- On October 30, 1943, Ontario Premier George DREW stepped to centre ice at Maple Leaf Gardens to drop the puck for a ceremonial face-off. The Toronto Maple Leafs had several rookies in the lineup to start the season, as wartime enlistments thinned the ranks. Among those skating into the breach was a handsome 20-year-old centre-man named Gus BODNAR.
Fifteen seconds from the start of the game, Mr. BODNAR pounced on a loose puck in front of the New York Rangers net. He slipped the disk into the net past goalie Ken McAuley. Just like that, the young forward had etched his name in the National Hockey League record book. Nearly 62 years later, the goal still stands as the quickest scored by a player making his debut.
Mr. BODNAR added another goal and an assist in leading the Leafs to a 5-2 win in the season opener, a performance that made him an instant fan favourite in Toronto.
Mr. BODNAR was a wiry centre with a reputation as a savvy playmaker. As a 5-foot-11, 150-pound rookie, he seemed a tad fragile to survive professional hockey's take-no-prisoners combat. Indeed, he would suffer a lengthy list of wounds and ailments in his career. He exited many games on his back courtesy of stretcher bearers and more than once did so while unconscious. Yet, he always seemed to be back on the ice within a week or two.
Sportswriters praised the skills of the "dynamic midget" who was described as a "resourceful young puckster" and "one of the slickest skaters ever."
The "dimpled darling" of "cherubic countenance" received poetry and mash notes from female admirers in those years when so many men were serving overseas. Mr. BODNAR, who had been rejected for army service for heart palpitations, was said to inflict that condition on his bobby-soxer fans. One piece of doggerel that made the newspapers read: "We want Gussy, good or bad/ He's the cutest number you've ever had."
What his erstwhile suitors did not know was that he was carrying a torch for a high-school sweetheart back home in Fort William (now Thunder Bay).
August BODNARCHUK starred with the junior team in his Ontario hometown, his obvious skills catching the attention of Leafs scout Squib WALKER. In his final season of junior hockey, the centre scored 10 goals and 29 assists in just nine games with the Fort William Hurricane-Rangers in 1942-43.
The brash youngster arrived at his first Leafs training camp convinced he would soon be an National Hockey League star.
"I thought I was pretty big stuff," he later told Frank ORR of the Toronto Star. "I had my hair long and all slickered down with goo. I figured I was about the hottest rookie ever to hit the pros, even though I weighed only 145 pounds."
The rookie got a quick and unforgettable lesson in the realities of the National Hockey League when veteran, 205-pound defenceman Bucko McDonald hit him with a stiff bodycheck during a scrimmage.
"I crashed to the ice and figured every bone in my body was broken. The only reason my hair was still attached to my head was because of all the goo I had on it."
He learned to skate with his head up, alert to incoming threats.
The three-point debut was a harbinger of a stellar rookie campaign spent on the Leafs first line between veterans Bob Davidson and Lorne Carr. Mr. BODNAR's talents earned him the Calder Trophy as the National Hockey League's outstanding rookie. Montreal Canadiens goalie Bill Durnan was runner-up, while Leafs rookies Elwin Morris and Teeder Kennedy tied for third. The trophy was announced on the final day of the season. Mr. BODNAR then scored two goals and three assists in a 10-2 shelling of the Boston Bruins.
Mr. BODNAR ended his first season with 20 goals and 42 assists to set a new league mark for scoring by a rookie. The record would stand for a quarter century until beaten by Danny Grant of the Minnesota North Stars in 1968-69. Mr. BODNAR's 62-point season was the Leafs club standard for rookies until bettered by Peter Ihnacak in 1982-83.
While Mr. BODNAR scored just eight goals in his sophomore season, his three playoff goals were all game winners. The Leafs outlasted the Detroit Red Wings in seven games to claim the Stanley Cup in 1945. Mr. BODNAR would also get his name on the Cup with the Leafs in 1947.
In his years with the Leafs, he centred Mr. Carr and Sweeney Schriner to form the Bacon Line, so called because the trio "brought home the bacon." He later combined with Bud Poile and Gaye Stewart to form the Flying Forts. All three players hailed from Fort William and all were part of a blockbuster, seven-player deal with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1947.
The seasons in Chicago were highlighted by a magnificent feat coming in the third period of the final game of the 1951-52 season. Chicago's Bill Mosienko scored three goals in 21 seconds against the Rangers on March 23, 1952. Mr. BODNAR assisted on all three. The record for the three fastest goals -- coming at 6: 09, 6:20 and 6: 30 -- still stands, as does the record for three fastest assists.
"I never left centre ice," Mr. BODNAR once told Paul Patton of the Globe. "I just won the face-offs and [Mosienko] did the rest."
Mr. BODNAR was later traded to Boston, where he ended his National Hockey League career after the 1954-55 season. He had scored 142 goals with 254 assists in 667 games. Along the way, he had also gone and married that hometown sweetheart, Etta MacDONALD. They were wed in Toronto in 1948 at a ceremony which included such Leaf greats as Teeder Kennedy, Syl Apps, Turk Broda, Don and Nick Metz, and Wally Stanowski, who was best man.
The player's popularity was such that a newspaper photographer was dispatched to Wellesley Hospital in Toronto to capture Mr. BODNAR and his bride posing with their first-born child, a daughter named Bonny Lynn, in 1949. He had rushed to the hospital on a Saturday night after playing the Leafs. He then caught a train for Chicago.
A house painter in the off season during his early hockey career, Mr. BODNAR had a long career as a salesman for a steel company. He also coached the Toronto Marlboros from 1965 to 1970, winning the Memorial Cup in Centennial Year with a roster including future National Hockey League defencemen Mike Pelyk, Brian Glennie and an 18-year-old Brad Park, who would become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Mr. BODNAR's patience and willingness to adapt to his young players' needs made him an ideal junior coach. He was not a screamer, unlike so many of his peers.
He left the Marlies just before the opening of training camp in 1970, when offered the general manager and coaching posts for the Salt Lake City (Utah) Golden Eagles of the Western Hockey League. His first job as a pro coach ended after a season, as the Buffalo Sabres farm team finished with a woeful record of 18 wins, 49 losses, 5 ties.
Mr. BODNAR headed the Oshawa Generals when named Ontario Hockey League coach of the year in 1972.
He also was one of three coaches to handle Canada's junior team in 1977-78, which won a disappointing bronze medal at the World Cup. The roster included Mike Gartner, Rick Vaive and a 16-year-old Wayne Gretzky.
In recent years, Mr. BODNAR often took part in charity golf tournaments. He has been inducted into sports halls of fame at Oshawa and Northwestern Ontario at Thunder Bay.
Gus BODNAR was born on April 24, 1923, at Fort William (now Thunder Bay), Ontario He died on Canada Day in Oshawa, Ontario He was 82. He is survived by his wife, Etta. He also leaves a son and four daughters.

Barbara is survived by her loving children Beverly, John (Maureen) and Debbie (Paul), grandchildren Lisa, Marci, Brian, Bill, Jonathan, Andrew, Ashley and Jeremy, and greatgrandchildren Sarah, Tyler, Alexis, William, Jamie and Logan. Barbara was pre-deceased by her husband William Winston McOuat 'Jim' DREW. Barbara was born in the Eastern Townships, Quebec and graduated from McGill University in 1937. Married in 1940, Barb and Jim moved to the West Coast, settling in Port Alberni and later in West Vancouver. A passionate Canadian, Barb taught French to countless students for over 25 years and inspired the lives of many individuals, including her grandchildren. Her passion for teaching and learning was ever present: encouraging and tutoring her grandchildren and their Friends; completing her Masters in the Teaching of French long after she had retired from active teaching; and ongoing study of Opera and Jazz at Simon Fraser University. Barbara was an avid gardener (her sweet peas, as her life, are legendary). She loved playing the piano, listening to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, National Hockey League hockey, traveling, reading, knitting and paper making. As matriarch of the family, Barb was a life-long cheerleader for all the sporting and cultural events of three generations of children. Fiercely independent with astonishing vitality and joie de vivre, she often said that retirement homes were for old people. A regular at fitness classes, Barb walked everywhere from her much loved 'pied-à-terre' in Ambleside. The family wishes to thank the wonderful nurses and doctors at Lions Gate Hospital and the Palliative Care Centre. Special thanks to Dr. Michael Hahn. If desired and in lieu of flowers, Barb's family requests that donations be made to Palliative Care at Lions Gate Hospital or to the West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation. Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and Friend, you were an inspiration to us all. We love you and we are so blessed to have had you in our lives. Au revoir et à bientôt.

He made every day a good hair day
Yorkville hair colourist worked until age 91
Bon vivant and master of his craft beloved by clients
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Legendary hair colourist Pierre TESSIER was on the job up until the week before he was admitted to hospital where he died three weeks later on February 17. Even though he was 91 years old, he never had any intention of ever stopping work.
At The Private World of Mary Tripi, the upscale Yorkville hair salon where he was employed for the last decade of his life, there's a sweeping spiral staircase that leads up to a big, bright room overlooking the old fire hall across the street. Every morning he would pause at the top of the stairs, an erect dapper figure, immaculate in one of his starched shirts and silk cravats, and beam at his co-workers. Mary TRIPI herself works at the station at the top of the stairs.
"It was a wonderful smile," she said.
A client recommended she hire TESSIER but warned her he was old. "Then I met him," she recalled. "He wasn't old. He had a magic. He was the age he was -- but also he wasn't."
He loved this world of artistry and egos, power and pampering, where four days a week he engaged in the curious intimacy forged between a woman and the man or woman she trusts with her hair.
TESSIER may have been the last colourist in Toronto using a technique for highlighting he had learned from his father and grandfather in his birthplace of France: a laborious process involving cotton balls and hours of his client's time. "Very old school," said his colleague, Nicholas VRETTAKOS. " You need a lot of patience. But he had more than 60 years experience. He was a master at what he did."
His workstation was the fourth chair in the colourist row, between Monique SANJAREI and VRETTAKOS, who both adored him. He was in the middle of things, where he liked to be.
On his lunch breaks he would look out over the salon with its cool green walls and softly lit mirrors, where women in salon wrappers, hair combed in damp furrows back from unadorned faces, feel safe, protected.
"I was addicted to him," said Sherry Eaton DREW. TESSIER streaked her hair for 37 years. "It was horrifically slow but absolute perfection."
She was stopped by strangers on the streets of Rome, Paris and London and asked for the name of her hairdresser, she said. "He was a maestro."
He turned down a request from actor Maggie Smith to do her colour when she was performing at Stratford. She wanted him to go to Stratford; he thought she should come to the salon. It didn't happen and he didn't care.
"He didn't need the accolades of doing Maggie Smith's hair," said his friend, Carole WILSON.
TESSIER became Friends with a good many of his clients. They were all blindly loyal to him: Margann ANDREWS followed TESSIER through four hairdressing salons to Tripi's, where TESSIER arrived with a file of 350 names of clients willing to pay upwards of $250 for colour and highlighting.
"He always made me feel special," ANDREWS said. "He saw the beauty in everything: people and paintings."
Carolyn WALKER began as a client in 1974. "I found him totally interesting," she said. WALKER had worked for the U.N. in Geneva they found they had much in common. "It was never gossip, never empty talk. He was a man of substance. His conversation was about ideas and culture and travel and food."
And, if asked, about his adventures.
The son of a barber and hair salon owner, and the grand_son of a wigmaker for the Paris Opera, TESSIER's own career began in the late 1920s when he apprenticed at a Paris salon from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., when it was busy repairing the coiffeurs of the women who worked at the bordello below. He quit to join the army and see the world for the next three years. Back in Paris, he was working in the storied salon at the Georges V hotel, when World War 2 broke out.
By 1940 he was a prisoner of war, interned in a stalag near Baden-Baden, from which he escaped twice, one of those times disguised as a woman. But when he and a buddy were recaptured the second time, they were moved to a higher security Prisoner of War camp near Düsseldorf and shackled together in a small cell for weeks. As soon as they were released, they escaped again. They thought they had made it into Belgium; they hadn't and were recaptured.
Again he escaped, this time during the Allied air raid on Cologne in 1943 and with the help of the Resistance, got to England where he joined de Gaulle's Free French. On D-Day he was hitting Sword Beach with commandos, but when the war was over, he didn't settle down and return to the salon. Instead he enlisted in the French Foreign Legion because he wanted to travel.
He was posted in North Africa and later Indo-China where he was captured and held prisoner again. And one more time, he escaped. But it took him two years to get back to the Legion's outpost in Morocco, he often said.
He was ready to get back to work. He rejoined the staff at the Georges V hotel, later moved to Monte Carlo and Cannes where he famously did Marlene Dietrich's hair. He met and married a beautiful Parisienne ballerina named Lucienne with whom he had a son. But in 1957, restless again, he moved the family to Montreal where he had a new job as head of the newly opened salon at the Ritz-Carleton hotel.
But 10 years later, he moved to Toronto. Alone. His wife had died, after a long battle with cancer. And his son? TESSIER rarely told people this, but his son returned to France and refused to speak with his father, whom he accused of not spending enough time with his dying mother. TESSIER never heard from him again, although he tried on at least two occasions to locate him.
This was not one of the stories he ever told his clients; instead he would chat about his travels, the latest art show or ballet or French film in town. But only when asked. He was a quiet man by nature, focused on his work.
In Toronto he met Anna WILSON, a glamorous Scotswoman in the fashion business. They were an elegant pair, hosting sparkling dinner parties featuring French recipes prepared by TESSIER and only the best wine.
"They were modern people, so interested in everything going on in the city," recalled Carole WILSON, who married Anna WILSON's son Patrick. A francophone from Quebec, Carole WILSON was taken under TESSIER's wing. Their Friendship continued until his death, even after WILSON was divorced from his stepson and after Anna WILSON's death.
"He was like a father to me," she said. "We were his family."
TESSIER worked in some of Toronto's best-known salons -- for Vicki Runge, Gerald and Lloyd, Monroe's in the Colonnade -- before joining Mary Tripi. When he turned 80, dozens of his clients and colourists whom he had trained turned up at Bumpkin's Restaurant for a surprise party. When he turned 90, the staff at Mary Tripi took him out to dinner and gave him a surprise trip to the Greek islands. On his 91st birthday (last April 13) he slipped away to Montreal to see an art show and old Friends. Last September, he rented an apartment in Montmartre and wandered through his old haunts in Paris.
When he fell ill with pneumonia at the end of January, clients and colleagues rushed to his bedside. His hospital room resembled a garden, one said. WILSON was there every night. WALKER spent hours by his bedside.
Sherry DREW was there every day for two weeks -- "He was my friend. How could I not?" she said -- until she had to travel out of town four days before he died. She walked down the hallway weeping because she knew she would never see him again.
She and the staff of Mary Tripi are fundraising for a scholarship in TESSIER's name. It will go to a student of hair colouring. They believe it is a fitting tribute to a man who always did his best work so that women, as DREW put it, "can go out feeling wonderful and invincible."
