Life and tragic death of a woman who cared
By Rosie DIMANNO, Page B2
Kindness killed Bernice Wee Choo LIM.
"That would be about right," says Det. Dave JAMES, the 32 Division officer who originally investigated the vicious late September assault that, one week ago, became murder.
What a grim city Toronto has become when the killing of a sweet, endlessly thoughtful 70-year-old woman merits barely a mention in the newspaper.
Perhaps only gangland slayings are sexy these days, where drive-by assailants shoot at funeral mourners in broad daylight, as occurred yesterday.
LIM was a 70-year-old nurse from Singapore, proud naturalized Canadian citizen and professional caregiver, mostly for elderly Alzheimer's sufferers because that was the only kind of work she could get. But she was awfully good at it, tender and vigilant, beloved by all with whom she came in contact, particularly the families of those she tended.
"She was a rock during the earlier stages of my mother's Alzheimer's," says Sandi HOFBAUER. LIM cared for her mom for 2 1/2 years, before the woman was put into resident care.
"On her own, she bought children's building blocks, with the letters on them, and children's books where you connect the dots, just to help keep my mother's mind focused. I used to give my mom envelopes with money to pay everyday bills and of course she kept misplacing the cash. Bernice would find money all over the place but she always gave it back to us. I mean, we would never even have known the money was missing if Bernice hadn't returned it. She was so trustworthy."
It was as a favour to a friend, another caregiver, that LIM opened her home to a 29-year-old man who'd been arrested and charged with assault with a weapon. The man was her friend's son. It was at this woman's bidding that LIM took herself to court for the man's bail hearing. The accused was freed on bail.
"A condition of his bail was that he live at her residence," says JAMES.
Ten days later, it is alleged that this same man, reportedly angry over his curfew restraints, seized a screwdriver and stabbed LIM in the head and neck. That was some time in the evening and the grievously injured victim lay there, alone, bleeding profusely, unable to move, unable to summon help.
The following morning, a man showed up at the police station, claiming he had stabbed a woman. Police rushed to the Wilson Ave. home and found LIM barely alive. She was taken to Sunnybrook, where she clung tenaciously to life for several weeks, conscious and alert for much of that time but in extreme pain.
"She was a tiny woman but one tough lady," says HOFBAUER, who visited LIM in hospital repeatedly. "She couldn't speak and she was paralyzed from the chest down. But you could tell, just from looking in her eyes, that she had every intention of surviving."
That didn't happen. With infection wracking her body, LIM succumbed to her injuries last Saturday. Had she lived, she would have been a quadriplegic because of the damage inflicted in the brutal assault.
"She'd been stabbed with such force that the screwdriver punctured a piece of bone in her back," says HOFBAUER.
When LIM arrived in Canada 15 years ago, she was a recently divorced woman, all on her own. It takes courage to start again in a new country, knowing no one, her three grown children left behind. Those children, and her ex-husband, all rushed to Toronto after they learned of what happened.
Last night, a funeral service was held for LIM. Her remains will be cremated and the family will take the ashes back to Singapore in a few days.
Stoic and intensely private, in the Chinese way, the family expresses no bitterness toward Canada and the violence that befell LIM here. "They're lovely people," says JAMES. But they're bewildered with a judicial system that allowed a man charged with a violent crime to go free on bail, delivering him essentially into the custody of a little old lady.
"I'm livid that somebody (charged with a violent crime)... would be allowed to go free," says HOFBAUER, who arrived at the hospital last Saturday only minutes after LIM had passed away. "The hospital did take wonderful care of her. All the nurses on the ward had fallen in love with her. That's just what everybody did with Bernice -- fall in love with her. She was just the most wonderful woman."
In speaking with the staff, some wondered aloud why such tragedies should visit the kindest amongst us. And HOFBAUER recalls someone saying: "Because the rest of us wouldn't have done what she did for that young man."
Roel VINTAYEN was originally charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault. The attempt turned out to be successful.
At LIM's house, her pleasant voice is still heard on the answering machine.
"Hello, this is Bernice..."
