QUIJANO, Madame Justice Georgina Marie
September 26, 1942 - January 17, 2005
Gina QUIJANO, who loved all things challenging, passed on to a new adventure on the evening of January 17, 2005. Lawyer, judge, sportswoman, photographer, bird-watcher, voluminous reader, and raconteur, she was truly a renaissance woman much loved by all whose lives she touched.
Gina was born in California on September 26, 1942 and graduated from San Francisco State College with a degree in Anthropology in 1968. Soon after, she moved to Canada. In 1975, she obtained a law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School. She practiced law in Vancouver for sixteen years, where she was respected counsel in the field of family law and civil litigation.
In 1992, Gina moved her law practice to Saltspring Island. In 1995, she was appointed as a judge to the Supreme Court of British Columbia in Victoria. For 10 remarkable years, she brought to "the bench" her renowned integrity, humour, fairness, common sense and good judgment.
Gina leaves her life partner, Barbara JORDAN- KNOX and daughter, Erin BAKER, brother Danny (Sue,) sister Mary, father George (Joan,) nieces and nephews and a loving circle of Friends. We all wish Gina endless golf courses in her life beyond.
Special thanks to Hospice staff, Home Care Nursing, the Palliative Resource Team, her physicians, and the private nurses who were so caring.
A celebration of Gina's life will be held at Uplands Golf Course in Victoria on February 20, 2005 at 3: 30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Gina Quijano fund in law: University of Victoria, Development Office, P.O. Box 3060, Victoria, British Columbia V8W 3R4.

TROIANO master of 'Toronto Sound'
Legendary guitarist, band leader is missed
Friends remember innovative spirit, business acumen
By Greg QUILL, Entertainment Columnist
The jaunty beret, capricious moustache, warm smile, bright eyes and inquiring brow are the features his family, Friends and admirers are remembering today as legendary Toronto guitarist, band leader, composer and music producer Domenic "Donnie" TROIANO is laid to rest in North York, following a funeral mass near his longtime home in Thornhill.
One of Canada's most influential and innovative rock musicians during the 1960s and '70s, and a revered session player, record producer, television and movie score composer and jazz recording artist in the following decades, TROIANO succumbed last Wednesday night to a 10-year struggle with prostate cancer. He was 59.
Born in Modugno, Italy, TROIANO and his family came to Toronto in 1949. A little more than a decade later, he was immersed in the city's burgeoning rock and R&B music culture, and, along with other budding guitar slingers, used to study The Hawks' Robbie Robertson at Concord Tavern Saturday matinees. By age 17 he had taught himself to play from chord books and by studying the work of his musical heroes.
While he defined what contemporaries call "The Toronto Sound" during stints with Robbie LANE and The Disciples, Ronnie Hawkins, The Five Rogues, Mandala, and Bush -- bands in which he became known as "the guitarist to beat" in Toronto in the years following Robertson's long ascendancy -- and carried the hopes of a generation of Canadian guitar slingers to the world as Joe Walsh's replacement in the American band The James Gang, and as Randy Bachman's in The Guess Who, TROIANO remained a polite and even humble presence in the industry, a musician's musician who eschewed the trappings of fame and excess.
"Donnie was the last person ever to talk about his achievements," says LANE, one of the guitarist's closest Friends from the age of 14, even before he and TROIANO formed The Disciples, the band that a few years later would replace Robertson and The Hawks as Arkansas rockabilly singer Hawkins' posse.
LANE, who is still performing "for fun" and hosts a radio show Saturday and Sunday afternoons in 1050 CHUM, paid tribute to his longtime friend on the weekend with a special segment featuring many of his recordings and the on-air memories of his musical contemporaries, including former wife, singer Shawne JACKSON.
"Donnie was two things -- a giant musician and producer, and a giant human being who really cared about people."
George Olliver, singer and frontman for the bands (Whitey And The Roulettes, The Rogues) that would become Mandala following TROIANO's split with the Disciples, was one of the guitarist's last visitors a week ago.
"He knew I was there, but it was impossible for him to speak but he managed a smile. I remember when I first saw him play in 1962 at Le Coq D'Or with Ronnie Hawkins on Yonge St. It was very soulful music, straight from the heart. It was mind-boggling to have him join our band just two weeks later. And from the minute he came in, he was the leader.
"He knew exactly what he wanted, and he had great ideas. He was headstrong in those days, very focused, and what he wanted always turned out to be the best thing for the band."
Three years later, Olliver and TROIANO parted ways, and though the guitarist went on to form the groundbreaking jazz-influenced rock trio Bush with Toronto bassist Prakash JOHN and drummer Whitey Glan, his reputation had already spread south via Mandala's recordings with the prestigious American R&B label KR Chess and tours of the U.S.
The band's first single, "Opportunity," is still credited by local musicians as the cut that took the Toronto Sound -- distinguished by a "heavily distorted, sustained vibrato guitar, a very dangerous noise," says veteran Toronto bassist Dennis PINHORN -- to Los Angeles and beyond. In 1968 Mandala (with singer Roy Kenner, who had replaced Olliver and would later join The James Gang with TROIANO,) recorded its only album, Soul Crusade, for Atlantic Records.
"Donnie was more than a great musician, he was also a great businessman," Olliver continues. "He was always reading up on production news, the latest trends in recording and management deals, and he was able to parlay that knowledge into a lucrative career as a songwriter, and an award-winning music score composer and producer for television shows (including Night Heat) and movies. One of the songs he wrote for Bush, 'I Can Hear You Calling,' was recorded by Three Dog Night as the B-side of the multi-platinum hit 'Joy To The World.' He made a fortune."
Olliver and TROIANO collaborated recently on remixing the reissue of Live at the Bluenote with George Olliver and Gangbuster, the classic 1980s recording of Toronto's legendary soul/R&B band.
To Ronnie Hawkins, who recently recovered from a bout with cancer, TROIANO was "a member of an endangered species, one of them semi-geniuses who live for their music yet remain polite and human and real. Donnie was a good ol' buddy... he was always there for you."
In TROIANO's memory the Metronome Canada Culture Heritage Foundation has established a $1,500 annual scholarship to a Canadian guitarist pursuing post secondary guitar education. Details at 416-367-0162, or http: //www.metronomecanada.com.

In memory of my loving husband and best friend Robert John QUILLMAN who passed on December 24, 2004, age 72
I remember the day I met you,
The day that God made you mine,
I remember the day I lost you,
And will to the end of time.
With all the tears and heartache,
The one thing that makes me glad
is that you chose me to share with
You the wonderful 40 years we had.
Every night I think of you and cry
A silent tear.
Nothing can take away our memories,
Our love and dreams.
I will love you forever.

He also leaves behind many other family members and countless Friends who will always remember his sense of humour, his enthusiasm and his zest for life, such as his passion for golf, music and cooking. Bruce started his career with Pepsi Cola Canada working in Toronto and Winnipeg. His career with Pepsi Cola International led him overseas to Japan, Egypt, Greece and Spain. He eventually settled in Ottawa with Pepsi Cola Bottling Company and later became president and part owner of East Can Beverages. In his retirement, his sharp business sense led him to own and operate several East Side Mario's restaurants in the Ottawa area. His staff was like extended family and his passing will surely be felt by all. Bruce, we will keep you in our hearts always and you will never be far from our thoughts. Thank you for loving us and being a part of our lives.

Judge KANE a giant in two arenas
Hockey and law were his driving passions in life
Former National Hockey League arbitrator had 'common touch'
By Christian COTRONEO, Staff Reporter
Joseph Charles KANE's heart belonged on a bench -- and even behind one.
As a Superior Court judge, his decisions from the judicial bench helped mould civil society in Ontario.
As a hockey coach, he shaped the lives of countless youth -- even if he had to be uncivil about it at times.
"The national anthem is finished," he would holler from his team's bench. "It's all right to move now."
The true measure of a man, KANE often said, is in his Friends. In that case, the former hockey coach, athlete and judge who died January 11 at the age of 76 was among the wealthiest men in the world.
Everyone from Maple Leafs coach Pat QUINN to sports magnate Steve STAVRO to Justice Roy McMURTRY attended KANE's funeral at Leaside United Church last Saturday.
"I have never been to a more glorious celebration of a man's life," said hockey analyst Bill WATTERS.
"I think he had more of a profound influence on me than I realized at the time. He always had a smile. He was always so positive."
WATTERS was 19 when he first met KANE.
"I thought, 'Boy, he's the kind of guy I would most like to be like,'" said WATTERS, who at various times was a coach, friend and even neighbour.
The fit, muscular man from Stratford, who "swore but was never mean," had role model written all over him.
KANE was among four freshly minted lawyers who founded a criminal law practice in an old building near Bay St. and Bloor Ave. KANE had the unenviable task of collecting fees from the clients.
"We were no good at charging fees," says former Justice Hugh LOCKE, who was a partner at the time. "So Joe collected the money. We called him the Vacuum Cleaner."
In 1978, after 23 years as a lawyer, KANE was appointed a county court judge in the City of Toronto. By 1997, he was sitting on the Superior Court bench.
"He was a very human judge," LOCKE says. "He knew what troubles people had. He had a very close, common touch."
Ontario Chief Justice McMURTRY, a friend of KANE's for more than 50 years, said KANE excelled when it came to tenant and landlord issues -- cases that could be so complex "a lot of judges sort of avoided them."
"But Joe understood people and he knew how to bring them together."
KANE was the consummate mediator, and his passion for law and hockey intersected when he served as an arbitrator for the National Hockey League.
Between hockey and the courthouse, KANE always found time for home.
"He was very hands-on," said daughter Wendy KANE. " Always involved in his children's lives and interested in their careers."
Along the way, KANE coached his four sons and spearheaded the move to bring a hockey team to York Mills Collegiate Institute in the early 1980s.
By then, the married father of six had long shaken the nickname Vacuum Cleaner -- and had been busy dispensing nicknames of his own. KANE's Friends were called the Fly, Spider and the Brush, names they kept for decades.
At one point, KANE reserved hockey tickets for a friend at the Corel Centre in Ottawa, but that friend found no tickets waiting for him at the arena.
Desperate, he tried using his nickname.
There were four tickets waiting for someone called "Haematoma."
"That's Joe," said WATTERS. "He was a judge. He was a scholar. But if he forgot your name, he would use your nickname."

Sobbing pals recall their 'rose'
Kitchen volunteer fed hungry with food from own fridge
Pattern of abuse started early in victim's life, cousin says
By Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporter with files from Dale Anne FREED
Rose McGROARTY was known for putting the needs of others -- to eat a good meal, find shelter, have a shower -- before her own. Even among close Friends, the 46-year-old rarely talked about her aches, the causes of the bruises beneath her sweater, why she spent so much time volunteering at the Parkdale Activity-Recreation Centre, or made it her home away from home.
If only she had, mournful Friends said yesterday, her fate might have been different.
"I can't help thinking that I wish I had known what you were going through," a friend wrote to McGROARTY in a letter read at a packed memorial service at the community centre. The building houses the kitchen where McGROARTY spent six days a week the last three years volunteering and making Friends -- until she disappeared last month. Her dismembered body parts have been found throughout the city.
But a family member said it would have been out of character for the hard-luck woman to tell anyone if she was a punching bag. She learned early, the cousin said yesterday, to distract herself and not dwell on what was really going on.
"I understand that she didn't have a whole lot of money in Toronto," said Kimberly CAMPBELL, a cousin who grew up with McGROARTY in London, Ontario "The catch here is that it didn't start (in Toronto)," she told the Star in a phone interview. "But Rose Marie was the type of person, no matter what anybody did to her, she would never talk about it."
A pattern of abuse in McGROARTY's life started early, when she was about 6 or 7, CAMPBELL said. She was living in London at the time, and with her mother unable to care for her -- for reasons that are unclear -- McGROARTY moved into a boarding house run by Edith SANDERS.
In 2002, SANDERS was convicted for enslaving and torturing children, including CAMPBELL, her adopted daughter, from the 1950s to the 1980s. SANDERS' victims testified at her trial that while under her care, they were beaten with hockey sticks, tortured with a cattle prod and forced to eat animal feces. SANDERS was sentenced in January 2003 to four years in prison on four counts of assault and three counts of assault causing bodily harm. She died last year while on parole.
The conviction stemmed from allegations brought by CAMPBELL and other siblings; none of the charges that resulted in conviction related to McGROARTY.
"Rose Marie didn't have a fighting chance (in life,)" CAMPBELL said, recounting their tormented childhood. "Dysfunctional leads to dysfunctional. She didn't get the education she needed, she was abused mentally and physically, and yet she went along in life and tried to accomplish and do the best that she could.
"It sounds to me that she was doing wonderfully for what she experienced in her lifetime. She was such a forgiving person."
"This was Rose's home. This was a very important place for her," said Peggy-Gail DEHAL- RAMSON, a Parkdale community advocate.
Nearly 100 people gathered at the memorial service, one of two held for McGROARTY yesterday. Leaning on canes -- and each other and wiping wet cheeks, those whom McGROARTY treated like family lamented their great loss. At times, centre general manager Victor WILLIS had to pause to console the crowd.
"There's such a disconnect between who she was and how she died," he said. "We will not let another woman be harmed in our community."
Three women who worked alongside McGROARTY in the kitchen each day, Michelle WALDRON, Jean McGRATH and Sugar WALKER -- who had a red silk rose pinned to her top -- sobbed uncontrollably during the reading of farewell letters they wrote to their friend.
"Knowing someone like you, Rosie, you really were a 'rose,'" one letter said. "A good friend. A beautiful person. A 'rose' could not be so sweet as you!"
Greg DOWE, 25, met McGROARTY through his grandmother, Marjorie, who frequently offered up her Dunn Ave. apartment for McGROARTY when she needed a reprieve.
"This is just like killing a part of my family," DOWE said. "She's the kind of person who would give up their life in order for somebody else to live. Everything about her was to make everybody else happy."
Later in the afternoon, Father Vaughan QUINN asked 20 parishioners to remember McGROARTY and her good works at a service at the Missionaries of Charity Convent, near her apartment.
WALKER said McGROARTY had been trying to mend fences with her mother and two children, in their 20s, after years of estrangement.
After the hour-long service at the Parkdale community centre, Friends stayed to trade favourite stories about McGROARTY. She was a rare volunteer who allowed the very hungry to come back for seconds -- if the food ran out, she wasn't above running home and taking from her own fridge.
Robert WISZNIOWSKI, McGROARTY's 50-year-old common-law husband, has been charged with second-degree murder.
