LAWRIE, Hazel Jean Dove (1915-2005)
Hazel Jean Dove LAWRIE, George and Mary Odell's youngest of four, passed in her sleep on Friday morning, October 21st, in her ninetyfirst year. Her leaving was as her life, peaceful and gracious. Hazel was born in Toronto where in 1938 she married her high school sweetheart from Runnymede Collegiate, Jim LAWRIE. It was just before the outbreak of World War 2, and a year later, soon after having their first son, Jim Jr.; Hazel was alone while her husband defended Canada as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy in the North Atlantic. Those were lonely years, living with her parents on Baby Point Crescent, raising a child and working at Loblaws. With Jim Sr.'s return following the war, the family grew adding sons, Robert and Michael, and moved to their first real home on Prince Edward Drive. Nearly a decade followed in Islington Heights, where Hazel made a loving home, even while returning to her desk at Loblaws. Ever the dedicated wife, Hazel moved to Spragge, in Northern Ontario, in 1958, when Jim Sr. began his transport business. For the uptown girl, the move was challenging, leaving behind her many Friends; brothers, George and Jack; and beloved sister, Marjorie; and their growing families. But Spragge was a short, two-year stay, and the family soon moved to Mississauga, to a new life and residence - with summers on Lake Joseph and winters in Naples, Florida. After Jim passed in 1987, Hazel continued living on her own, eventually moving to Cambridge where she lived independently but relying on the continuing support of Michael and Louise and their dedicated children. Throughout her life Hazel personified gentleness. She was the rock supporting all of her family with unconditional love, and an occasional bit of spot-on guidance. To the very end she was beautiful and dignified, always inspiring her family, always calm. The last five years were especially happy as Hazel continued to draw family and welcome Friends to her gracious hospitality in her home in Cambridge and to Hawk Ridge, the family cottage on Lake Joseph. Always foremost to her family, she became the Matriarch, radiating love, wisdom, and her particular brand of good humour - one line zingers - never at anyone's expense, but always very funny. Hazel's family cherished her, and already miss her: Jim, his wife, Emily; and his three daughters, Heather, Michelle and Jennifer; and their mother, Sondra LAWRIE; Robert, and his partner, Judy MAUS; and his daughters, Katherine, and partner, Paul MALCOLM; Robyn RUTLEDGE, and husband, Rob; and Katherine and Robyn's mom, Lynne LAWRIE and Dr. Michael, and his wife, Louise; and their three children, Jamie, Jillian and Cameron. Jillian became especially close to Hazel during the last many months when she took over the joyful yet challenging role of being her Nana's primary caregiver. Others whom Hazel smiles down on include her nephews George, John, and Bill ODELL; Donald, Doug and David BLENKARN; nephew David LAKE nieces Mary BLENKARN, Jacquie JONES, and Andrea BRENNAN (ODELL) niece Susan PINCO (Doug) and their daughters Jacquie and Melissa cousins Ruth ODELL and Theresa ODELL; Judy's children, John and Trina; Emily's children, Brenda, Mark and Alan; and all the spouses, partners and families of these centering spirits. Friends and family may visit on Tuesday evening from 6: 00 to 8:30 p.m. at Turner and Porter 'Peel' Chapel, 2180 Hurontario Street (Hwy 10, north of Queen Elizabeth Way). Hazel's Memorial Service, a celebration of her life, will be held at 2: 00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26, again at Turner and Porter. Following the service, the family invites all to join them at the Mississauga Club, 1725 Mississauga Road (north of Queen Elizabeth Way) from 4: 00 to 6:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Hazel's memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

Terrified patrons flee as bullets spray crowd
Widowed mother of 4 shot dead at club
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter, With files from Michelle SHEPPARD
It was to have been a night of joy and laughter, a night to forget a year of sorrow.
Instead it was a night of violence and gunfire that left a young Brampton widow and mother of four small children shot to death on a nightclub floor.
Livvette MOORE, whose husband died from cancer last year, had been struggling to raise her children and balance the demands of a new job. So Friends encouraged the 26-year-old to join them at a birthday party Saturday night at Prestige Palace, a restaurant on Milvan Dr. in North York.
But shortly after 3: 30 a.m., gunmen, who smuggled handguns past security guards at the front door, opened fire, spraying bullets across a room crowded with more than 200 partygoers.
MOORE was caught in the crossfire and died within moments.
A part-owner of the Jamaican-themed nightspot, near Finch Ave. W. and Weston Rd., was critically wounded and taken to Sunnybrook hospital. Five others wounded by stray bullets made it to hospitals on their own.
Police were able to easily identify MOORE. The names and faces of her children -- Jaheel, 10, Chanel, 7, Deandre, 6 and Tyrel, 5 -- were tattooed on her upper right arm.
"It's a tragedy on a tragedy," said Homicide Det. Wayne BANKS, who said shots were still being fired as officers arrived at the scene.
"We've lost a young lady, one of our citizens that was here to enjoy a party. She's been gunned down in the early part of her life and it's just disgusting."
The reaction was all that and more on a dead-end street in a Brampton townhouse complex, where relatives and Friends gathered to mourn MOORE and rally around her children.
"There are four little ones I have to take care of now," said her father, Amos REID, who fought back tears and rubbed at red-rimmed eyes as he spoke of his dead daughter.
"She was my daughter and my friend," he said, leaning on son Kevin for support as he clutched a wrinkled photograph of Livvette.
"She was everything to me.
"I talked to the Creator this morning," he said. "Because only He knows what's going on with this young generation. We've got to change our style. It's not good. It's killing us, big time, big time."
REID, 53, said Livvette didn't drink and had joined Friends at the party to try to find some pleasure as she worked to get over her husband Sean's death.
"She just went out to have fun and then that's how it ended," he said.
"She's good, she's good, she's good, all the way good."
The killing was Toronto's 18th homicide this year. It came two hours before another shooting at a downtown club that wounded an employee of the Film Lounge.
The party at Prestige Palace began Saturday night and carried on into the early hours yesterday morning.
It was billed on flyers as the third annual Birthday Bash for Michelle BLESS, but the club was open to anyone.
Cardboard cutout stars hung from the ceiling; pastel balloons and streamers lined the walls. Mylar balloons filled with helium, one in the shape of a champagne bottle, blew outside in the breeze.
The dance floor was packed when the shooting began. At first, some of the dancers at the nightclub kept moving to the reggae beat, thinking it was just the balloons popping. Then the panic hit.
"Everybody starting running, so I just got caught up in it, everything happened so fast," a 28-year-old woman recalled.
"I ended up basically under a table with a whole bunch of other people and the shots continued to go off. Maybe about six shots or more.
"We were under there for maybe a minute, minute-and-a-half and then everybody got up to run to the door."
witnesses: said gunfire continued outside in the parking lot as police arrived. The window of a car parked in front of the two-storey strip plaza where the club is located was shattered by a bullet.
Bill BLAIR, who is to be sworn in as Toronto's new police chief tomorrow, talked to investigators at the scene.
One man who arrived as other patrons were fleeing said he didn't think twice. "It's common sense," he said. "You see girls running and guys running.
"Are you going to go and stand? You get out of there, too."
A regular partygoer said the usual security staff weren't working the club for the party.
"They had to bring in at the last minute a new set of security guards," he said. "So a certain set of people come and see an opportunity and take it... to get in with their weapons.
"The regular security know who to search and where to search."
He said a handful of "idiots" regularly show up at dances and parties with weapons but are turned away by security guards.
"They're kids, they're young punks, 19 or 20," he said. "They drink all day and smoke all day and go out at night looking for trouble.
"It's just a small portion of the community and they make it bad for everybody else."
Another partygoer said security guards at the door were looking in bags and patting down some people, but there were no metal detectors.
"I just want to know how the killer feels," said one teenager who left the club in a cab after running from the shooting, too scared to collect her car in the parking lot.
"Were those shots meant for her? How could he do that?"
Also yesterday, Toronto police were investigating a shooting at the Film Lounge club just before 5 a.m. A 33-year-old employee was shot as he stood outside the club on Dundas St. W. near Beverley St.
A year ago, a bouncer was shot at the after-hours bar. A few weeks earlier a Kitchener teenager had died after taking ecstasy there.
Yesterday, an off-duty paramedic treated the victim before he was taken to hospital for surgery. He is expected to survive. Police said the shooting took place at the club entrance.
In Halton, police made a quick arrest yesterday in the region's first homicide of the year after a 45-year-old Acton resident was stabbed to death Saturday night. A 44-year-old man was arrested after a fight at a Maria St. home. Police said he knew the victim.
