GROPPER, Naomi Laura (STEINER)
Born October 3, 1970 passed away peacefully on June 23, 2005 surrounded by her family.
Despite being diagnosed with a brain tumor almost year ago, Naomi continued to live her life to the fullest. She continued to have hope, and continued to give to, and draw strength from, an enormous group of family and Friends.
Naomi is survived by her husband, Daniel STEINER, her four year old son Benjamin and one year old daughter, Bella, her parents Arlene GLADSTONE and Hamish CAMERON and Mitchell and Lynne GROPPER, her grandmother, Zoe GROPPER, brother Daniel GROPPER (Tamara) Aaron GROPPER, Ross CAMERON, Hamish CAMERON (Patricia), Grant CAMERON and Dory CAMERON (Gordon) and Daniel's parents, Norma and George STEINER, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family thanks Doctors Brian THIESSEN, Michael McKENZIE, Warren MASON, Beverly SPRING, Keith HATLELID and Lori MacFARLANE, as well as the caring nurses and staff of the British Columbia Cancer Agency and the Palliative Care Ward at Vancouver General Hospital for their support and guidance.
Naomi lived a full, but short life. She studied at Vancouver Talmud Torah and Magee High School. At 16 she traveled to France to attend school there. Her university education was at McGill (B.A., 1990), Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1989) and University of Toronto (M.B.A., 1998) where she was her class president. From 1994 to 1996 she worked, first as a volunteer, and then as a manager, at The United Way of Greater Vancouver. From 1988 to 2001 she worked as a management consultant with AT Kearney, dividing her time between her home with Daniel in Toronto and cities across North America, including New York where she and Daniel lived from 2000 to 2002. In 2002 Naomi and Daniel returned to Vancouver, where Naomi worked with Arts Umbrella where she was instrumental in the establishment of the endowment fund in honor of Carol Henriquez.
Naomi was also active in the community, as a board member of the Jewish Family Service Agency of Vancouver and co-chair of its 'Innovators Lunch' held in April 2004, and co-chair of the Ben Gurion Society and of the Family Day of the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver.
Family and Friends were central to Naomi's life. She had the ability to touch each of them all of the time. Her children bear the indelible stamp of her love. She will be missed and remembered by many.
Funeral services will be held at Temple Sholom in Vancouver at 7190 Oak Street on Sunday, June 26, 2005 at 10: 00 a.m. with the burial to follow at Temple Sholom's Cemetery in White Rock. (Shiva arrangements will be announced at the funeral.)
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Naomi Fund at the Jewish Family Service Agency. The Naomi Fund will support families and individuals facing medical crisis in our community who are not fortunate enough to have a group of family and Friends such as those who were available to provide strength to Naomi. Please contact J.S.F.A. in Vancouver at 604-257 5151 or by mail to 305-1985 West Broadway Vancouver, British Columbia V6J 4Y3 for further information.

Man shot, killed in crowded square
At least 1,000 people were partying, with lots of police around, when shots were fired.
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Hundreds of people dropped their drinks and kicked off their sandals and flip-flops to flee the scene after gunfire rang out at a jammed public square early yesterday.
It was one of three fatal but apparently unrelated shootings in a 12-hour span.
At least 1,000 people were partying at Dundas Square, a downtown gathering spot, at 4: 30 a.m. when the shooting happened, said Toronto police Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE.
"It was packed, it's safe to say wall-to-wall people," he said. "I'm sure you're going to fit more than 1,000 people there."
Hundreds of police officers were on the scene as part of stepped-up security deployed for large crowds, such as the weekend Caribana festival celebrating Caribbean culture, McGUIRE said.
Ajine STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 24, of Mississauga, was arrested soon after the shooting and faces a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Dwayne TAILOR/TAYLOR, 21, of nearby Brampton, who died later in hospital.
McGUIRE added he couldn't understand why someone would commit such a crime in plain view of a substantial police presence and security cameras.
"I mean, we have police officers on horses, we have hundreds of police officers in uniform and (someone would) still choose to take someone's life."
McGUIRE said the square is popular most Saturday nights, but this week's had swelled exponentially due to the city's Caribana festival, which attracts hundreds of thousands of people from all over North America and the Caribbean.
But he was quick to add the shooting was not the result of the festival itself.
"Shooting people on Dundas (Street)... has nothing to do with Caribana, it has to do with a large crowd gathering after the event," he said.
In another case, the body of Umathevan THIYAGARAJAH, 26, of Toronto was found at a suburban intersection after gunfire was reported.
Elsewhere, Leroy WHITTAKER, 46, was shot through his Toronto apartment door.
No arrests have been made in those shootings, which follow a spurt of recent violence.

Homicide toll climbs to 38 after weekend shootings
Four dead in separate incidents in the Greater Toronto Area within less than 12 hours
By Timothy APPLEBY, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page A7
Toronto's homicide total for the year climbed to 38 yesterday after three disparate gunshot slayings in different corners of the city within less than 12 hours.
And just north of the city, Peel Region police were investigating the Greater Toronto Area's fourth homicide of the weekend after a woman was found suffering "severe trauma" in a basement apartment in Brampton.
In Toronto, one killing occurred shortly before dawn, as thousands of post-Caribana celebrants milled on downtown Yonge Street, and was witnessed by a police officer who chased and captured the alleged gunman nearby. Panicked onlookers fled as the gunfire erupted.
The three Toronto homicides came on the heels of a blood-soaked 48 hours less than a week earlier, when seven people were wounded in six different gun incidents that were also apparently unrelated.
The weekend violence took place just days after Statistics Canada released its annual crime report for 2004, which showed that the Greater Toronto Area had the lowest crime rate of any major Canadian city last year, with an 8.6 per cent reduction over The number of murders in Toronto dropped by 3 per cent last year, dipping to 64, even as the rate rose nationwide. (In 1991, the Toronto figure was 89, a record high.)
Together, those seemingly contrary trends suggest that while the city overall may be safer than a few years ago, the opposite holds true within the underworld, where by every measure there are more firearms available than ever before, notably handguns smuggled in from the United States.
"The biggest concern is, the number of people out there who know people who are carrying guns," Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE, who heads the homicide squad, said yesterday. "We need people to come forward and work with us so we can get them off the street."
The first of the weekend's slayings occurred in North York Saturday afternoon, when police were summoned by a 911 call from a 10-year-old boy living in a high-rise apartment on Flemington Road, close to where one of last weekend's shootings occurred.
Inside the apartment was Leroy WHITTAKER, 46, shot dead by bullets fired through the closed front door, apparently after a knock.
Two men seen loitering in the corridor a short while before the shooting are being sought.
As to whether Mr. WHITTAKER was the intended victim, "we don't know because the shooters themselves would not have known who was on the other side," Staff Insp. McGUIRE said.
"We're simply fortunate that the 10-year-old lad was not in the way."
Next to die, shortly before midnight Saturday, was Umathevan THIYAGARAJAH, 26, found in the well-lit parking lot of a small strip mall at Finch and Warden avenues in Scarborough.
Mr. THIYAGARAJAH, who appeared to have had no previous dealings with police, had been shot several times and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Several men were spied near where his body was found. Police yesterday urged any witnesses: to come forward.
Finally, at around 4: 30 a.m. yesterday, came the gunfire at Yonge and Dundas streets, killing Dwayne TAILOR/TAYLOR, 21, of Brampton, who died later in hospital.
Ajine STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 24, of Mississauga, was arrested soon after the shooting and faces a charge of first-degree murder.
In Brampton, police responded to a 911 call about 1 p.m. yesterday after a man who was seen walking naked in the Williams Parkway and McLaughlin Road area said a crime had been committed.
Officers later discovered a 21-year-old woman "suffering from severe trauma to the head" in a nearby basement apartment, Constable Jennifer BRYER said.
The woman died of her injuries in hospital.
Police are treating her death as a homicide and have arrested the man, but he has not been charged. They say the man and woman knew each other.
Staff Insp. McGUIRE stressed that Toronto's weekend Caribana festivities appear not to have had any connection to the violence.
While much of the crowd packed into Dundas Square had been celebrating Caribana, he noted, the festival itself was by then long over and was almost entirely trouble-free.
"This had nothing to do with Caribana, it's a very unfortunate incident, I'm sure the people associated with Caribana just shake their heads."

Shootings 'spike' as 3 slain
Police downplay violence as third victim shot to death
Man gunned down through closed door of his apartment
By Sikander Z. HASHMI and Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporters
Three fatal shootings in 12 hours have jolted the city and left a neighbourhood in fear, but police are downplaying the most recent rash of violence.
"When a spike like that happens in the year, we have to remember that this stuff does level out over the average year," Toronto police Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE told a news conference yesterday.
Besides the two fatal shootings Saturday, a man was shot dead yesterday at Yonge-Dundas Square at Yonge and Dundas Sts.
The first shooting death, the city's 36th homicide of the year, occurred Saturday afternoon on Flemington Rd., near Lawrence Ave. and Allen Rd., in an area that saw two shootings last week. Police do not believe the incidents are related.
Leroy WHITTAKER, 46, was gunned down as he came to answer the door at his Lawrence Heights apartment. A 10-year-old boy inside the apartment, whose relationship to the victim police wouldn't disclose, called 911. Police say the shots were fired through the closed door and do not know if WHITTAKER was the intended victim.
"The aggravating factor obviously in this case is first of all the indiscriminate use of a firearm, firing through the door of the apartment when there was really no way to know who was on the other side," said McGUIRE.
Police are looking for two men between the ages of 25 and 30. One is tall with a thin build and was wearing a white do-rag on his head. The other is shorter than the first suspect and has a stocky build.
"I can't believe someone would go kill that poor innocent man," said a former neighbour. "He's so innocent. That man give trouble to no one."
Yesterday, police tape blocked off an area marked by a large dried bloodstain in front of the victim's apartment as two officers kept watch. Drops of dried blood marked the stairs leading to the floor.
Fearful neighbours barely raised their voices as they spoke about what happened.
A nearby neighbour, who also didn't want to be identified, trembled as she recounted Saturday's events. She had just returned from shopping and had noticed two men standing outside the victim's door. A few minutes later, shots rang out, followed by sirens.
There is no way she can continue to live in the area, she said.
"I'm outta here," said the 46-year-old. "I don't care how, (even) if I have to go to a shelter. I'm not living here."
Candice HEWSTON, 21, a mother of three young children who lives four doors away from the crime scene, was scared and said she had been looking to move before Saturday's incident due to violence in the past.
Over on Dorney Court, the scene of the two shootings last week, there was as much frustration as fear.
"It's just ridiculous," said a mother of three who refused to be identified. "Nobody feels safe around here any more.
"I don't care about myself, but my kids, they have to go through that, you know. It's traumatizing for them."
In the second homicide of the weekend, a 26-year-old man from Sri Lanka, gunned down late Saturday night in a Scarborough parking lot, may have been shot moments after leaving a bank machine.
Police discovered the body of Umathevan THIYAGARAJAH when they arrived at the scene at the rear of a professional building at the northeast corner of Warden and Finch Aves.
It's too early to comment on what may have led to THIYAGARAJAH's slaying, said McGUIRE. " There was a group of people around and something may have happened."
McGUIRE said police received a call about 11: 50 p.m. on Saturday that gunshots had been heard at the location, which is directly across from Bridlewood Mall.
"In the parking lot they found the victim lying on the ground, obviously badly injured and there were four or five people standing around at the time who have all been interviewed," McGUIRE said.
Police said THIYAGARAJAH wasn't known to them and that he lived in Scarborough.
McGUIRE said he was found at the base of a light standard in the well-lit parking lot.
"It's an area known for people to congregate in the evenings, hanging around," McGUIRE said. "In particular it's our understanding there were a number of people standing at the bus stop at Warden and Finch.... We expect they would have been in position to see or hear something which may add to the investigation, and we would ask that they also come forward."
Yellow police tape cordoned off the entire strip mall yesterday, including a large parking lot at the rear of the four-storey professional building at 3420 Finch Ave. E., which houses many medical and dental offices.
More than a dozen evidence markers had been placed in an area of the parking lot immediately in front of the entrance to several automated teller machines at a Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce bank as forensic investigators meticulously examined the parking lot for clues.
Police said they were also checking to see if any of the businesses in the area had video surveillance that may have captured the shooting.
