HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON, Edna Elizabeth "Betty" (née MADILL)
It is with appropriate reverence and muted celebration that we announce the passing of our dear mother on March 14, 2005. In her 89th year, she died peacefully following a week of care at the William Osler Health Centre - Etobicoke Campus. We all have splendid memories of the contributions she made to so many in so many ways, not the least were her sons and daughters, 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. She will be especially remembered by sons Frederick David and Gordon Douglas, and their wives Lorna and Leslie, son-in-law E. Joseph (Joe) CALNAN, her brother Harold Stuart MADILL and wife Josephine, and nephew Ralph HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON. Daughters Elizabeth Ann and Barbara Jane CALNAN, and her brother Ralph MADILL, predeceased her. A top-ranked golfer, she shared her joy for the sport with the Humber Valley "Swingers" until she retired her clubs only a few years ago. She was also in high demand as a contract bridge partner with several clubs. According to her wishes, there will be no funeral service or reception at this time; her ashes will be interred at Victoria Lawn Cemetery in St. Catharines on July 2nd at which time a celebration of her life will take place. Anyone wishing to remember her, is invited to make a contribution to the Canadian Cancer Society (Research), or in her name with the charity of choice.

Friends watched horrified as two men shot to death
Three on balcony saw fatal shooting
Police hope DNA tests prove fruitful
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
It took about two minutes.
A violent dispute. Gunfire. One man lies dead on the apartment's living room floor, his friend bleeding to death in the kitchen.
Two men flee, losing their dark blue and white bandanas in a laneway behind the apartment building.
It was Friday night, about 9: 30. On the balcony of the third-floor Niagara St. apartment, three other people had been smoking. They saw the fight begin and witnessed one of their Friends take a gunshot to the chest.
One man on the balcony ran out of the apartment to a nearby stairwell.
Another called 911 from his cellphone but realized he didn't know the address.
He too left the apartment, panicking, banging on doors as he ran down the hall, trying to find someone who could tell him the address.
The third man stayed in the apartment with his Friends: Justin HODGE, 20, who was later pronounced dead at the scene, and Damian MUIRHEAD, 22, who had been shot in the neck.
MUIRHEAD died in hospital.
"We believe that the motive for the murders is robbery," Toronto police homicide Det. Sgt. Ken TAILOR/TAYLOR said at a news conference yesterday. "It is quite possible... the suspects believed that they may have been able to go into that apartment to get some drugs and/or money."
The suspects wore bandanas over their faces, and police don't have detailed descriptions of them. Police have spoken to two of the men on the balcony and are hoping to hear from the third. TAILOR/TAYLOR stressed that investigators do not believe he was involved in the slayings, but he might be able to provide valuable information.
Bandanas and a silver watch found in a nearby laneway are being tested for DNA. TAILOR/TAYLOR said he is hopeful those tests will help track down the killers.
TAILOR/TAYLOR said police found some marijuana and ecstasy inside the apartment: No. 313 at 180 Niagara St. Although both victims had had some minor dealings with police, TAILOR/TAYLOR said neither were part of a gang.
HODGE, an aspiring hip-hop artist who was working on an album, had an amazing sense of humour, said his sister Sara in an interview.
"He was a clown. He always had something funny to say. He was an intelligent boy with a vast vocabulary," she said.
Sara HODGE, 22, visited her brother almost every day, she said, and had been at the apartment that night.
"I left early, but I don't really know why."
She described her younger brother as handsome and popular.
"He did not have one enemy. He was my best friend, my other half. I am lost without him. We told each other we loved each other. We laughed together. We cried together," she said through tears.
HODGE said she introduced her brother and MUIRHEAD about six or seven years ago. For several years, she dated MUIRHEAD and they all lived together.
"He was a good guy, a happy guy," she said. "He always had a kind word to say... Damian, he wanted to make something of himself, but he wasn't sure how to get there."
MUIRHEAD had been living in a basement apartment at his aunt's North York house.
Dee Dee SCRUTON said her nephew was outgoing and popular.
"Damian had all kinds of Friends, everywhere he went, everybody loved Damian," she said, adding, "They were both good kids, kind-hearted."
Yesterday, both families were making funeral arrangements.
"I'm holding it together because that's what Damian would want," SCRUTON said. "He loved and respected me and I loved and respected him. He was my friend first, my nephew second. That's what he said, we were Friends. I just got to hold it together for him."
HODGE lived with his friend Steve MADISON at the 62-unit low-rise Niagara Neighbourhood Cooperative in King West village, which has many upscale condominiums, trendy restaurants and bars.
MADISON was at work the night of the shooting.
MUIRHEAD had stopped in for a visit with his friend some time before 9: 30 p.m., when at least two men entered the apartment.
Three other men dropped in to say hello and to pick up a cellphone from MUIRHEAD. Those three -- who were on the balcony at the time of the deadly fight -- hadn't planned on staying.
"Justin was the target," TAILOR/TAYLOR said. The suspects may have known him.
The homicide officer believes MUIRHEAD was shot after coming to the aid of his friend.
The fight was short, but violent, TAILOR/TAYLOR said, noting both dead men had a number of injuries. MUIRHEAD, he noted, broke one knuckle in the melee.
"It is quite evident that both deceased were involved in quite a violent fight just prior to their deaths. It is my belief that one or both suspects are injured as a result of this fight," TAILOR/TAYLOR said.
Two of the three men on the balcony spoke with police, providing a lot of detail about how the fight broke out. TAILOR/TAYLOR said police have yet to talk to the third man who was on the balcony that night.
"This witness was a friend of Justin's," TAILOR/TAYLOR said.
"It appeared that he had called Justin on his cellular phone just prior to the murder and Justin let this person into the apartment."
He asked that the man call homicide detectives.
"I know you knew my brother," HODGE said of the witness. "You were probably scared, probably still scared. It is very important that you do come forward and give whatever information you have. Two people are gone and many more are hurting."
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call TAILOR/TAYLOR at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers, 416-222-8477.
