Winnifred Vining GIGUÈRE
By Jean SHAPTER and Elizabeth LANG, Tuesday, December 6, 2005, Page A24
Mother, sister, veteran, hostess, teacher. Born October 22, 1920, in Oxford County, Ontario Died July 18 peacefully in her sleep in Mississauga, Ontario, aged 84.
Wynne, as we called her for much of her life, was the first child of Elizabeth and Gordon VINING and, together with her sister Jean, grew up on a 40-hectare farm a few miles from the Middlesex County site of the pioneer Vining settlement in southwestern Ontario.
She qualified for two scholarships at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate Institute in London. After teacher training at the London Normal School, she taught in one-room country schools until the summer of 1942, when she and her sister enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force Women's Division. There they both served in the secret world of the Operations Room. Air Force postings took Wynne to Rockcliffe, Ontario, Halifax, Florida, Saint John's (overseas at that time), Dartmouth, Ottawa and Ancaster. She completed her service with the rank of Flight Officer.
In September, 1945, as Adjutant of the Ancaster Convalescent Hospital, Wynne met Flying Officer Paul GIGUÈRE, a wartime Lancaster bomber pilot. Paul quickly won her heart and after their discharge from the service, they were married.
Their early years together were spent in Quebec but in the late 1950s, Paul's work brought them to Ontario and a home in Mississauga. Six children blessed their marriage: John, Susan, Diane, Michael, Julie and Lisa. The passage of years added four sons-in-law and a daughter-in-law. At the time of her death, Wynne, who hated the idea of being called "grandma," was "Mumzie" to twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Traditions in Wynne's home celebrated her family's dual heritage. Her pièce de résistance on Christmas Eve was Mme Giguère's tourtière served with her mother's chili sauce. On New Year's Day, according to French custom, she hosted a gala party for the entire family.
After many years as a mother and homemaker, Wynne returned to teaching and earned a degree from the University of Toronto. She had an outstanding career with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board as a classroom teacher in both elementary and secondary schools and, ultimately, as department head.
In retirement, Wynne exchanged the classroom for the community. Her activities included service with the Volunteer Centre of Peel, working with retired teachers' organizations and speaking for the Dominion Institute's Memory Project which aims to familiarize elementary and secondary school students with the Second World War.
She enjoyed frequent social activities with retired teachers and travel in Canada, the United States, Europe and Hong Kong.
Wynne actively pursued genealogical research. This led her to Massachusetts, where, centuries ago, an adventurous 16-year-old Vining ancestor from Somerset settled. It also took her to England, where she researched other Vining ancestors, and to Ireland, where she traced her Talbot and Duffin forebears. Her genealogical records are formidable.
Wynne was a disciplined walker and a life-long nature lover. She especially enjoyed the spring wildflowers in Rattray Marsh and the geese and ducks swimming with their young at the lake's edge in Jack Darling Park in Mississauga.
Among all her interests, Wynne's family was paramount. Her home was the focal point for gatherings to celebrate birthdays, New Year's Eve, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Even at 84, she insisted on preparing the festive meals single-handedly and remained a relaxed and welcoming hostess to all.
Jean is Wynne's sister; Elizabeth her niece.

Susan Marie SHAY/SHEA
By Sandra PATE, Tuesday, September 20, 2005, Page A20
Activist, friend. Born December 26, 1957, in Montreal. Died March 20 in Toronto, aged 47, after a 10-year battle with fibromyalgia.
The sixth of Bob and Jean's kids was a Boxing Day surprise for her doting siblings. She was small and delicate her whole life, but also playful, stubborn and deeply principled.
A feminist and lesbian, she bridled at the heterosexist society that sought to decide what family meant. For her, family was whomever you chose and Susan's included a circle from far and wide. Her door was always open and the pot on the stove could always feed one more. Through the years, her home was the scene of great parties on Oscar night, to watch Cagney and Lacey, whenever the Canadian women's hockey team played or when her beloved Blue Jays were in action.
Susan majored in women's studies at Concordia University's Simone de Beauvoir Institute in the mid 1980s and she was a founding member of the Concordia Women's Collective. When she graduated in 1986, the institute awarded Susan its highest accolade, the Thérèse F. Casgrain medal, in recognition of her academic achievements and extra-curricular activism for social justice.
Before ill health reduced her mobility and independence, Susan was an avid athlete. She was a wicked softball player, a daredevil skier, forever spraining ankles, and a distance runner, chronically nursing shin splints. She loved the weightlessness that water gave her and swam at every opportunity.
Resourceful and always up for an adventure, once on a women's winter retreat she jumped at the chance to go tobogganing. There were no sleds but Susan found a large aluminum salad bowl and folded herself in. She set a land-speed record as she hurtled down the hill, before flying over a bump that sent her face-first into a snow drift. "That was scary" she said with a grin, her glasses bent out of shape.
In 1988, Susan met Celest, the love of her life, with whom she would create a home over the next 17 years.
After moving to Toronto, she sought a master's degree in library sciences at the University of Toronto. Midway through, she began experiencing pain in her wrists. Undaunted, she learned to use a voice-activated computer. The pain and immobility moved to her jaw, making speech arduous and often impossible. After that, every day was a challenge, with unpredictable pain affecting different parts of her body. She persevered and finished her degree.
Through her illness, Susan worked hard to get well. She became an expert on fibromyalgia, discovering how little is known about the disease and how divided the medical community is about its treatment. Persistent, she sought help from professionals as well as support groups and tried every possible treatment -- regular exercise, acupuncture, massage, drugs, holistic remedies, rest, diet -- all with little sustainable effect. Daily life was unpredictable and laborious.
Over the last year of her life, her unabating pain was compounded by the inability to sleep. Susan's life was completely devoid of everything that she enjoyed most -- visiting with family and Friends, writing, swimming, trips to the cottage and gardening. As her friend, Emily, wrote, "Susan was a quiet survivor -- her drama was internal and private. She radiated engagement, reflection and compassion."
Before she died, Susan went to great effort to write a letter to Friends and family, explaining her decision to end her life and offering final messages of comfort and love. At her memorial service her friend, Martha, read When Death Comes, by Mary Oliver, which contains this line: "When it's over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms." That is how we will all remember her.
Sandra Pate, family and Friends

Gregory Thomas HULSE
By Janice SHAY/SHEA, Friday, December 23, 2005, Page A22
Son, brother, friend, leader, Christian, athlete, Born May 5, 1986, in Stockport, England. Died June 24 near Kingston, Ontario, after a traffic accident, aged 19.
The eldest of Jonathan and Marie HULSE's children eagerly accepted the family decision to emigrate to Canada from England in 1994. With younger siblings Matthew and Stephanie, Greg embraced this change as he did all experiences in his too-short life -- with enthusiasm, confidence and good humour.
If we are defined by the clothes that we wear, one could attempt to characterize Greg from the uniforms of the roles that he assumed.
Greg proudly -- and sometimes creatively, such as wearing it with summer shorts -- wore the uniform of Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School in Kingston, Ontario From Grade 9 on, it was clear this lanky boy with the gap-toothed smile -- the result of a school-yard accident -- would be a leader. He served on the Athletic Council, where he quickly became known to fellow students, staff and administrators as a keen student and enthusiastic friend. In a world sadly lacking civility, he was absolutely remarkable for his politeness. He ran for Student Council as the "Hulsifier." Despite a hectic schedule of extracurricular activities, he maintained an average of more than 90 per cent.
Greg cheerfully wore Holy Cross's somewhat goofy centurion costume at athletic and other events. Greg the mascot came to epitomize good fun, school spirit and youthful exuberance.
In his last official role at Holy Cross, Greg wore the green academic gown of the valedictorian. The graduating class had voted to have Greg deliver their parting message to parents and Friends in June. In this address, Greg spoke of service, little knowing the sad prophesy in his statement that evidence of service is found in "the memories that we take away."
As a member of a deeply religious family, Greg assumed many roles in the local Catholic community: eucharistic minister, reader, retreat leader.
If asked, there is no doubt that Greg would have ranked his athletic uniforms among the most important in his life. He excelled in many sports, including track and field and cross-country. But soccer was his passion. A lifelong supporter of Manchester City, he was an accomplished player himself. He played for, among other teams, St. Patrick's elementary school, Holy Cross, the Cataraqui Clippers Soccer Club, the Limestone City Football Club and the Queen's Golden Gaels. His coach at Queen's University called him the spark that ignited the rest of the team.
One of the most important roles Greg assumed was that of volunteer. After numerous fundraising efforts, he and fellow students and staff spent 10 days near Kingston, Jamaica, working on volunteer projects and getting to know the people. A photo from that time shows Greg with his hair braided into corn rows, grinning mischievously and surrounded by smiling children he got to know.
In his first year studying life sciences at Queen's, Greg met his girlfriend Julie. That May, he wore the red-and-black wool uniform of the Fort Henry Guard, the historical site's dramatizers and guides. In this role, he endured 30°C heat and demanding military drills.
It was as he was returning home from Fort Henry that the accident that took his life occurred. Greg would not be permitted to wear the uniforms of the life to which he aspired: the stethoscope of the surgeon, the tuxedo of the groom, the greens of the new father.
The fire of the "Hulsifier" has gone out, but not without leaving lasting sparks in the many worlds he inhabited.
Janice is a colleague of Greg's mother.

Young rabbi killed at train crossing
May have been blinded by sun
Police appealing for witnesses:
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
A popular young Thornhill rabbi may have been blinded by the rising sun early yesterday when his car was hit broadside by a GO train at a level crossing on Green Lane just east of Bayview Ave.
Rabbi Levi BIALO, 25, died instantly when his white Acura Legend became wedged under the lead car of the reversing GO train and was carried about 160 metres down the track.
BIALO and his wife Shira were in charge of the young adult program at Chabad Lubavitch, an Orthodox synagogue about a block and a half from the scene of the accident. Both also taught elementary classes in the synagogue school.
Friends say BIALO, who moved here from Cleveland about two years ago, likely was rushing to make Shacharit or morning prayers at the synagogue when his car was struck shortly after 7 a.m. The level crossing, which is protected by lights, bells and a barrier gate, is just east of the driveway to the BIALOs' home in the Landmark condominium project on Green Lane.
York Region police accident reconstructionist Sgt. Dave MITCHELL said police suspect BIALO may have been blinded by the rising eastern sun, brushed under the barrier gates, put on his brakes and stopped directly on the southbound tracks. "It's just a very sad and unfortunate set of circumstances," he said.
Police are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the accident to shed some light on the circumstances.
The rush-hour train had just left the Langstaff station near Highway 7 and Yonge St. and was heading for Union Station.
No one was injured on the train, but MITCHELL said the three-member crew was "severely shaken" by the accident. They were taken away by investigators to be interviewed.
The GO passengers were transferred to buses within an hour and a half of the accident to continue their trip into Toronto.
Members of the tight-knit Chabad Lubavitch community were devastated. They called the young rabbi "the best person you could ever meet."
Several members of the synagogue stood staring anxiously down the tracks as Markham firefighters and other emergency workers conducted the difficult task of freeing the man's body from the car's wreckage.
A Jewish burial team, which traditionally cleans and blesses the site of a tragic accident involving Jews, was allowed on to the site shortly after the body was removed around 10: 30 a.m.
Green Lane was closed most of the day as accident investigators studied the scene. Rail traffic began moving along the Bala subdivision Toronto's main rail line into Northern Ontario -- around 11 a.m.
Rabbi Avraham PLOTKIN comforted BIALO's family. Other congregation members at the site could not believe the rabbi, who leaves pregnant wife Shira and a 2-year-old son, was gone.
"He was so full of life and such an inspiration to everyone," said Neil HENDERSON, 50. "He would have been on his way to morning services... this is really sad."
"Levi was a great person who helped bring religion to a lot of people who did not pray so often or so hard," said Jeremy PILARSKI, 25. "He hosted regular dinners at his home for the young people in the community and made a difference in their lives.
"I am sure everyone who knew him is just devastated."
HENDERSON said the accident should make officials consider a grade separation for the tracks, which run through a busy residential and commercial area.
GO Transit spokesman Ed SHAY/SHEA said the line is owned by Canadian National and he did not know of any plans for an overpass.
He said the train speed limit at that point was 40 or 50 km/h, depending on which of the two tracks the train was using.
York Region police, the Transport Safety Board, GO Transit and Canadian National are investigating.
