MOORE, Vivian
It was a long battle with a short, but peaceful ending. After fighting cancer successfully for five years, Vivian MOORE quietly slipped away from us all on October 23, 2005 in Toronto.
Vivian was no stranger to struggle. She fled the grinding poverty of a small mountain village in Greece as a child. On her own, she crossed the Atlantic on a steamer ship to live with an uncle and aunt in Canada in the hope of finding a better life. She grew up half a world away from her mother and brothers, living in a land where she did not speak the language. It was a challenge that would defeat many. But with unwavering determination, she persevered. And she did find that rich and wonderful and rewarding life.
A radiant young woman living in Hamilton, she met Allan MOORE, the man with the dancing blue eyes and infectious smile who became her true love and devoted soulmate. From Hamilton, they moved to Winnipeg, where they spent most of their 51 years together. They shared a life blessed with close family and warm Friendships. They entertained graciously. They cocooned with their children at the cottage. They celebrated both triumphs big and small with Friends and loved ones. And with infinite compassion, they were always the first to extend a hand when darkness descended into someone else's life. Rarely did they stand still for long. Together they criss-crossed the globe, sharing adventures together in Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia. But their most poignant trips were visits back to Greece where Vivian reconnected with her loving mother and adoring brothers.
Vivian will be deeply missed by her family. Her husband Allan, her sons Paul and David, Paul's wife Susan SWAN and David's partner Alfredo RODRIGUEZ. And she will also be deeply missed by the two boys, who could always put a smile on her face, her beloved grand_sons Graydon and Jonathan. Beyond family, there are countless people from Winnipeg, Victoria Beach, Toronto and throughout southern Ontario, who will be saddened by her passing. But all of us, family and Friends alike, will smile someday soon knowing that we were all privileged to have shared a walk along the same path as such a vibrant and loving soul.
A funeral service will be held in Toronto this Thursday, October 27, at 1: 00 p.m. at the Chapel of St. James-the-Less at St. James Cemetery, 635 Parliament Street. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, #1-888-939-3333.

Pair's death in car deepens distress at school
Students already split over sex-assault, harassment charges against 16 youths
By Unnati GANDHI and Joe FRIESEN, Friday, November 18, 2005, Page A13
A school stunned by the arrest of 16 young people on charges of sexual assault and harassment was rocked again yesterday by the death of one of its students.
Police found the bodies of 17-year-old Anna ZARNOCH, a Grade 12 student at James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic High School, and William RODRIGUEZ, 22, just after 6 a.m., yesterday in Mr. RODRIGUEZ's garage in the city's west end.
Police called the deaths accidental, saying the two probably died of carbon-monoxide inhalation after the old Cadillac they were sitting in had been running for hours overnight with the heater on and the garage door closed.
A police spokeswoman said Ms. ZARNOCH's death is not related to the criminal investigation at the school.
"She went to the school, but she was in no way connected to the sexual-harassment case," Constable Wendy DRUMMOND said, adding that Ms. ZARNOCH was not a witness in the case. "At this point, we're ruling it an accidental death from carbon-monoxide poisoning,"
The teen's death plunged a divided school further into disarray. Many senior students, some of them facing charges, are waiting for the court case to begin as well as mourning a classmate's death. For a school with slightly more than 600 students from Grades 9 through 12, the effect will likely be significant.
On Monday, 14 students were taken from their classes, arrested and handcuffed. They joined two others accused in a case that has sent shockwaves throughout the city. Police allege that a 16-year-old student was sexually assaulted and harassed both inside and outside the high school for more than a year. In one incident, police say, the girl was dragged from a school hallway and assaulted in a stairwell before being taken to a bathroom and assaulted again.
Staff convened an emergency meeting with students, parents and police Wednesday night to discuss the impact of the alleged assaults and the arrests of the 16 students. The event apparently did little to calm frayed nerves.
Some parents said they were considering removing their children from the school, while others said their children were afraid to return. A few students said they were ashamed to wear their school uniforms in public.
Many students are upset with the way the case was handled.
They say their classmates shouldn't have been arrested at school.
They have accused police and school officials of racism and of being heavy-handed in dealing with the accused, all of whom are black. Some have stayed away from school since they attended a bail hearing for their jailed Friends on Tuesday.
Ms. ZARNOCH lived in a high-rise building just south of the school near Keele and Finch Avenues.
Mr. RODRIGUEZ, who was her boyfriend, according to family members, lived in the Lansdowne house near St. Clair Avenue with his mother, sister and brother-in-law.
The brother-in-law, Al BARBOZA, said at the home yesterday that the pair had gone into the garage about 7: 30 p.m. on Wednesday. Mr. RODRIGUEZ's mother checked on them at about 1 a.m. and thought they were asleep.
"They stayed in the car the whole night," Mr. BARBOZA said. "I can't believe they were out there sleeping, it's so cold."
When the mother found them without any vital signs at about 6 a.m., she called police.
Mr. BARBOZA said he didn't know Ms. ZARNOCH very well, but knew that she had been reported missing by her family on Wednesday.
"Whenever he gets a girlfriend, I don't know what he does. He brings them over here all the time."
While Mr. BARBOZA said that the Cadillac parked in the garage rarely gets driven, upstairs tenant Anabela ALMEIDA said that she had seen Ms. ZARNOCH several times before and knew that Mr. RODRIGUEZ often went to listen to the radio in the car.
"The girl stays at the house sometimes," said Ms. ALMEIDA, who had been living on the second floor of the two-storey home for the past seven months.
The bodies have been taken to the coroner's office for autopsies scheduled for today.

In Loving Memory of Allan RODY.
Life is not the same now that your gone,
Two years now, two years too long,
It's a constant battle to try and stay strong,
Just thinking of all the memories your missing out on,
The Grandkids are growing, the Kids moving on, to deal with life knowing their Father is gone,
No Papa, no Dad, no Husband in sight,
Allan we know you didn't give up because we all watched you fight.
We miss you and love you and wish you were here. We hope you are a little happier now that "Buddy" is there with you.
