COOPER, Patricia Lucy (née GILLGAN)
Aged 81, from complications related to diabetes, on May 5, 2005, at Stratford General Hospital. Pat was born July 29, 1923, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, raised in Scotland, and immigrated to Canada in her 30s. She served in the Women's Royal Naval Service in World War 2, married Don COOPER on June 1, 1946, and had one child, Pamela. In Canada, she lived in Toronto, Montréal, Calgary, Kitchener, and finally, Stratford. After life as a homemaker and mother, Pat rejoined the workforce, first with Eaton's, and then, more true to her passions, as a proofreader/editor with a legal publisher. Pat is survived and missed by her husband of nearly 59 years Don COOPER, her daughter Pamela DELANEY, her sister Betty IZZARD of Toronto, her brother Vic GILLGAN and his wife Brenda of Derbyshire, England, her five nieces including, Barbara IZZARD- THYNNE, her many nephews, including Danny IZZARD, and Stephen, Peter and Phillip Gillgan, her grand-dog, Fiona, and seven grand-cats. Friends Nadine RAYNER and Christine FORD have lost a mentor and woman they admired. She joins her beloved parents, Vic and Ida GILLGAN, and her "son" Dusty the cat; all three of these "spirits" spent her last month in the hospital with her, according to Pat herself. She is also reunited with Colleen CHAPLIN and Chris STOKES, who she has missed dearly. As per her request, there will be no funeral. Pat's body has been donated to the University of Toronto. She will be remembered as a classy lady, with a well-honed wit, and a deep love for animals and the English language; as Danny put it, "she was the coolest." We owe our deepest thanks to Dr. Laurel MOORE for the care, admiration and respect she gave to Pat. Donations in Pat's memory should be sent to Pet Trust, Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada N1G 2W1. That would tickle her whiskers no end.

MASSON, Janet Catherine (née LAMONT)
On May 13, 2005 at home, after a valiant struggle with cancer, at the age of 72. Wife of Gordon MASSON, cherished daughter Karen, and son Paul will all miss her greatly. Her sister Margaret (ANDREWS) and her husband Bill ANDREWS have been very close to her also. Loving Nana of Jessica and Matthew FORD, Karen and Christopher FORD's children, and Adam and Laura MASSON, Paul and Cathie Ann MASSON's children, sister-in-law of Ted and Muriel MASSON. Sadly missed by nieces and nephews, Janet BROPHY, James ANDREWS, Anne MASSON, Janet PEARCE, Nancy LOGAN and their spouses and children.
Cathie MASSON has been a tireless volunteer with the Ste. Anne and District Branch of the Victorian Order of Nurses. She has served as past president of the Board of Directors, and board member, but longest, and dearest to her heart, as co-ordinator of palliative volunteers.
In 1984, as a direct result of a study she carried out, the Victorian Order of Nurses began a palliative home care service for residents of the West Island. Cathie's vision and determination also laid the groundwork for the opening of a free standing hospice in our community. She generously supported other with her expertise to realize her dream. She served on the board of this hospice from its opening.
While the Victorian Order of Nurses was the recipient of most of her volunteer hours, over the past 40 years she has volunteered with a variety of other community and church organizations. It was those in need at the end of their life who benefited the most from her vision, commitment, professionalism and compassion.
She was the recipient of the Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada from the Governor General of Canada in 1992, The Volunteer Award of Excellence from the Victorian Order of Nurses of Canada in 1996, and, most recently (April 18, 2005), The Governor General's Caring Canadian Award from Adrienne Clarkson, the Governor General, at a presentation at Rideau Hall, Ottawa.
Thank you to all the staff at Saint Mary's Hospital Center, especially to nurse Jeanie Sinclair. The care and support given to Cathie and the family by the Victorian Order of Nurses and Health Access nurses after she came home was greatly appreciated.
Visitation at Collins Clarke MacGillivray White Funeral Home, 222 Autoroute 20 (Cartier exit 49), Pointe-Claire, Quebec, on Tuesday, May 17 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Celebration of her life will be held at Beaurepaire United Church, 25 Fieldfare, Beaconsfield, Quebec, on Wednesday, May 18 a 1 p.m. Interment to follow at Lakeview Memorial Gardens.

Jim was a second generation Scottish Canadian, born in Guelph, who joined the Ontario Provincial Police in 1945 - serving in Niagara Falls and St. Catharines - before being transferred to Toronto where he rose the top rank of Commissioner. Friends and police officers alike referred to him as 'Big Jim', not only because of his 6' 5' stature, but also because of his social and affable presence at police and social gatherings. Following his retirement, Jim organized the first Ontario Drinking and Driving Counter Measures Program - with civic committees in 53 Ontario municipalities. For the next ten years he served as the Honorary Lt. Col. and Col. of the 11th Field Artillery Regiment in Guelph.

Among highlights of his career, Jim was the founder of the Ontario Provincial Police's Anti-Rackets Branch which tackled white-collar crime, in particular the Great Canadian Art Fraud of Group-of-Seven art forgeries, which brought him into contact with famed artist A.J. CASSON, who became a lifelong friend. As Ontario's Director of Emergency Response, he was Senior Officer at the Mississauga train derailment and evacuation (largest peacetime evacuation in Canada). He was also Senior Officer investigating the crash of an Air Canada DC8 in Woodbridge which killed 109 people, and he successfully negotiated the release of a family kidnapped by a penitentiary escapee near London, Ontario. He was the Canadian de1egate at Interpol H.Q. in France in 1968, Chairman Ontario Chiefs of Police 1978-9, Chair, Ontario Traffic Safety Council, 1980-3; and President, Royal Canadian Military Institute.

Patricia Lucy COOPER
By Pamela Catherine DELANEY, Thursday, October 27, 2005, Page A28
Lady, friend, knitter, chocaholic. Born July 29, 1923, in Belfast. Died May 5 in Stratford, Ontario, of diabetes complications, aged 81.
'I'm losing my mind," Pat confided to her close friend, Christine FORD, in the early 1990s. She knew. And what a mind she lost.
Pat and her parents moved to Ayrshire, Scotland, when she was one year old, and her accent bore the trademark "oatmeal savage," as she called herself. Pat's childhood was idyllic. Her father, Victor GILLGAN, was a warm, funny, very clever man; her mother, Ida, was more serious, and deeply wise. Pat's sister Betty and brother Vic were born in Scotland. Even in dementia, Pat's long-term memory retained images of her beloved Highlands.
An excellent student, proficient in languages and with an immense love of literature, Pat showed innate artistic talent and attended Ayr Academy, but the Second World War broke out. The contentment of family life, Friends and boyfriends was left behind and changed forever when she joined the Women's Royal Navy Service.
Stationed in northern Scotland, distant from the front, Pat fell into another happy phase of life, working as a torpedo mechanic, eating, drinking ("to stay warm") and dancing. As the war ended, and the loss of Friends sank in, Pat sought a new normalcy: She and Fleet Air Arm pilot Don COOPER married on June 1, 1946.
She and Don initially lived with his mother in Netherfield, England. After several difficult pregnancies and miscarriages, in early 1955 a pregnant Pat flourished. Her only child (except for her "son," Dusty the cat), Pamela, was born that summer. As it transpired, Pat had given birth to a lifelong best friend.
Then began the nomadic life. Two sea-sickened moves back and forth across the Atlantic. Two years in Montreal, Toronto for about 20 years, seven years in Calgary, where she happily worked as a proofreader (in French and English) for Carswell Legal Publications, and then back to Toronto. She retired in Kitchener, Ontario
I inherited Pat's sense of style, talent for design and love of writing. Together, we went to museums, galleries, ballet, theatre and films, and travelled to the Napa Valley in California and Halifax. During my years working in motorsports, Pat often accompanied me and became a mascot to drivers Franck Freon and Andrea Montermini, whom she adored.
On holiday in Quebec City, I noticed Pat drinking water, something she had always hated (unless frozen and chilling a shot of Scotch). She was diagnosed with diabetes.
After Don suffered a health breakdown, I moved my parents to my adopted hometown, Stratford, a place where Pat and I had enjoyed many theatrical performances and a place she had always wanted to live. And there, two years later, she would die.
Following a mild stroke in 1999, Pat's mind, in essence, left her. She was still the gracious and sweet gal she had always been, but gone was the vibrant intellect.
Pneumonia sent Pat to hospital in March and tests showed a lung tumour. Her dementia was profound by then: She believed that her parents and Dusty were in the room with her and she often did not recognize Don or me.
Then, something obstructed her throat and she was unable to eat. She tore out her intravenous line and, in accordance with her instructions, no attempts were made to force-feed her. She was taken off life support, administered drugs to keep her comfortable, and died nine days later, mere hours after I read to her Shakespearean sonnets and My Heart's in the Highlands by Robert Burns.
Even now, she continues to prove her mettle: Pat donated her body to the University of Toronto department of anatomy and cell biology.
Pamela is Pat's daughter.

Clara CIRASELLA forged circle of Friends
Ailing woman's devoted pals formed care group
There were lineups to see her before she died
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Clara CIRASELLA decided she wanted to die as she lived: surrounded by Friends.
She collected people. She was fun and funny and had an infectious, winning grin. She made a point of getting to know just about everyone who crossed her path, be they young or old, gay or straight, the telephone repair person or the pair of homeless women who frequented Annette St. when she lived there.
She lived full throttle, growing up in Cooksville (now Mississauga), later screaming through its streets in her Austin Mini, then hurtling herself at different times throughout Europe, South America and southern Africa, always laughing, always in-your-face opinionated and always with her camera.
She made her money through real estate -- buying young and buying smart -- and after a couple of unsuitable 9 to 5 jobs, by selling promotional products. She was the company's top salesperson in the country. But she also set up a photography studio in the gracious home she bought at Avenue Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W., where she could indulge in her passion for portraits and especially the wedding photos that allowed her to expose her sentimental side and her own love of family.
Her first diagnosis of cancer in 1995 emboldened her. "I'm alive," she told her many, many Friends. "This is a second chance. I'm going for the gusto." It carried her through a bone marrow transplant in the year 2000. That and her mischievous sense of humour. To startle her nurses, she left joke-store fake lit cigarettes under the hospital bedding and nonchalantly placed a lifelike plastic white mouse on her shoulder.
But the transplant meant that when the cancer reoccurred a couple of years later, her only treatment to control the tumour growth was radiation and there wasn't much that was positive about the prognosis.
And just after Christmas 2003, her health took another dip, the crisis occurring during a rare time alone. She phoned her older brother, Carman, who raced to her home and phoned the ambulance. She was rushed to Princess Margaret Hospital, hospitalized, diagnosed with a tumour in her spleen and given a blood transfusion.
She never forgot the feeling of being ill and frightened and solo and decided she would never experience it again. This champagne-loving people person had been doing some serious reading about care teams while in Princess Margaret Hospital, and she had decided that she, too, would like to have people in place, not so much to help her, she rationalized, as to help Roxana MARTINEZ, her partner of seven years, who was holding down two jobs as well as taking on the increasingly exhausting task of caregiver.
CIRASELLA turned to a friend she knew to be organized as well as compassionate.
"I was very honoured when she picked me," said Anne KEREKES, a friend of 15 years who became the volunteer co-ordinator of a care-giving group called the Simba Circle. Simba means lion in Swahili and CIRASELLA chose the name for its strength as well as its memories of a life-changing safari photography tour she experienced in southern Africa.
CIRASELLA was an astute judge of character: KEREKES and her partner, Elaine FORD, became part of the core of a group of 25 Friends who received an information package in February 2004, entitled: You have been invited to join A Care Group for Clara CIRASELLA. Each member filled out a sheet itemizing his or her strengths and interests and availability.
The team was organized into two clusters. Those in Group A were assigned tasks. Some accompanied CIRASELLA to her Tuesday medical appointment; her brother shovelled her driveway; FORD took her to Home Depot and was always good for a laugh. Others provided foot rubs, Boston cream pie and Essiac tea. Rina MANCINI, a friend since they were pre-teens, helped with her finances, her sister-in-law with income taxes. Members of Group B visited CIRASELLA and were instructed to call her directly while KEREKES brokered who did what via email and issued weekly updates to everyone in the Circle.
"I loved the group. When I was at work, they took my place," said MARTINEZ.
"I'd send out an emergency email and get five or more responses within the hour," KEREKES recalled.
Joining the Simba Circle were Friends from university, Friends from her travels, ex-girlfriends, business associates, MARTINEZ's two children, even a friend she'd made at age one. "After a while, what I came to understand, was that what seemed to me to be a confusing blur of names, was to Clara, the integral relationships which formed the substance of her life," a friend from university, Gwen JENKINS, noted.
Typically, CIRASELLA soon posted a message in the weekly email to her Circle, reminding them that she was available to give as well as receive help.
"Keep in mind this Circle is Not all about me but an opportunity for all of us to help each other as life comes up," she wrote April 7 of last year. "Please remember that I am very willing to reciprocate whenever I can, I can keep people company on their doctor's appointment and /or a whole list of other things."
But by June 21, some of the rules had to be amended.
CIRASELLA was becoming tired from fielding so many phone calls from Friends. KEREKES had to institute new protocol: phone her to book a visit with CIRASELLA. Then, three days later, KEREKES emailed the Circle that CIRASELLA's cancer had spread to her lungs, that their friend needed "uplifting" and "fun visits" and not too many questions about her health.
Again, typically, CIRASELLA rallied and hired a contractor to build an addition for entertaining onto the back of her house. "I plan to kick butt from here on in," she wrote September 9. But on November 4 she told the Simba Circle she had been diagnosed with acute myoblastic leukemia and by December 22, KEREKES's weekly email stated that "visits are now for comfort and watch over Clara, not necessarily social."
But as usual, CIRASELLA cooked Christmas dinner for her Friends. On New Year's Eve, though, it was Chinese takeout. And when a fatigued CIRASELLA took to her bed, everyone scrambled on to it with her to greet midnight with champagne and noisemakers and toast their brave friend.
During the last Saturday she spent at home she decided she and Gwen JENKINS would make stew. "Of course, according to Clara, I was doing everything wrong," JENKINS said. "You'd think after 20 years (of Friendship) I would know you don't peel garlic."
CIRASELLA was admitted into Princess Margaret Hospital for the last time January 24. She died February 1 at age 51, but not before she said goodbye to all her Friends and families. There were lineups to see her. KEREKES remembered arriving at the hospital late from work -- 7 p.m. -- and having to wait until after 9: 30 to get in to see her friend.
The Simba Circle was coming full circle.
"The Circle allowed us to go through this with her," said FORD. "The group experienced something very profound together."
"This has taken away a little bit of my fear of dying," said MANCINI.
Carman CIRASELLA believed the Simba Circle prolonged his sister's life by months. And Clara CIRASELLA was adamant, even in her last hours, that they continue the Simba Circle after her death to help support MARTINEZ and to help others start their own Simba Circles.
They have already begun to do that.
