DIMANNO, Domenico
Passed away Friday, January 28, 2005 at St. Michael's Hospital, age 73, surrounded by his family. Nothing ever came easy for him. Not living, not dying. He fought valiantly for his life to his final ragged breath, but his poor battered heart - an enormous, loving heart -- could bear no more and was finally stilled. The world is an emptier place, without him in it. Yet the grace and valor of his life endures in all that he built out of nothing, with his two strong hands, the sweat of his brow, and a fierce self-reliance. He was a man of the earth, of the soil, and all the seeds that he planted here, in his adopted country, have taken root and thrived. This is his garden, his Eden on earth, with the sturdiness of the family tree at its centre. He is profoundly mourned by his devoted wife of 50 years, Maria. Cherished eternally by his daughter Rosalba and son Ben. Too soon wrenched from the arms of his beloved young grandchildren, Joshua and Juliet, whose memories of him will never be allowed to dim. Remembered with filial fondness and gratitude by his four nephews and surrogate sons: Joe, Rafael, Tony and Mario. Also by their wives Catherine, Gilda, Nazzarena and Maria. Survived by his sisters Michelina and Olympia, brother-in-law Antonio, sister-in-law Marialouisa. Sadly missed by numerous other nieces, nephews, godchildren, Friends. And a faithful dog called Daphne, who still waits by the front door. The family extends its thanks for the tender nursing care in the intensive care unit of St. Michael's Hospital, and the long-standing attentions of the dialysis clinic nurses at Humber Regional Hospital, Church St. site. Family and Friends will be received at the DeMarco Funeral Home, 3725 Keele Street, north of Sheppard, Sunday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., and Monday from 6-9 p.m. Funeral Mass to be held 9: 30 a.m. Tuesday at St. Norbert's Catholic Church, 100 Regent Rd. (Dufferin/Wilson). Interment to follow at Westminster Cemetery, 5830 Bathurst St. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association. Rest now sweet father, lay down your burdens. Prepare a place, as you've always done, for those of us who will follow. And may a loving God embrace you.

Tragic deaths shock teens
Students react to accidental deaths
By Rosie DIMANNO
Teenagers embrace and weep. Some are angry and direct that fury at outsiders, anyone beyond the terrible closed circle of their grief, their incomprehension.
What a wretched week it has been for students and faculty at James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic High School. They are in need of tenderness and solace.
Already stunned and emotionally raw over the arrest of 14 black male students charged with sexually assaulting or harassing a white female teenager over a prolonged period -- police swooping down to remove the youths on Monday, allegations of racism swirling since -- these students were left reeling anew yesterday morning upon learning that another one of their own had been found dead in a car only a few hours earlier, apparently the victim of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning.
The deceased is Anna ZARNOCH, a 17-year-old girl in Grade 12, reported missing by her parents the previous day. Her lifeless body, along with that of a 22-year-old male, was discovered shortly after 6 a.m. in a Cadillac parked inside the garage of a Lansdowne Ave. home, where the young man resided with his family.
Autopsies were to be performed today but police believe this awful tragedy was an accident. It appears the couple had fallen asleep in the back seat of the vehicle, with the engine running. The keys were still in the ignition but the car wasn't running because it was out of gas by the time the gruesome discovery was made.
Det. Sgt. Scott GILBERT, of 13 Division, told the Star last night that the young man's mother had seen the couple going into the garage the night before. "She went back out at 1 a.m. to check on them... but she didn't have any reason to think anything was wrong."
The mother then went to bed. It wasn't until a friend of her son came by early yesterday morning, to pick him up for work, that the mother realized he wasn't in his room, sources say. That's when the garage was checked again and the bodies found. Police were called, arriving at about 6: 20 a.m.
It was all too, too much for students at McGuigan, a high school on Finch Ave. just west of Keele St. Girls sobbed openly as they mulled around the school's front entrance while teenage boys puffed furiously on cigarettes and shouted "Go Away!" at reporters arriving on the scene.
"Leave us alone!" several pleaded. "This is a terrible thing that's happened. It's not news."
Alas, it is news, however unconnected the two occurrences -- the arrests and the accidental death -- may be. It is a hideous coincidence or confluence of events, with many wondering what in God's name this poor school has done to be so stricken by calamity, with all the attendant media attention.
"I just saw her yesterday," said Elizabeth OGUNBOYE, 14. "We walked together right along this street. The next thing I know she's dead. She was such a nice, a really nice, girl.
"First the arrests and then this."
It took considerable courage for any of the students to speak with reporters, as other youths shouted at them to shut up, knock it off. A few of the teenage boys and one extremely hostile girl took it upon themselves to steer others away from reporters, who were careful not to venture onto school property.
"Anger, sadness, shock," said Jessica OPOKU, 14, describing the atmosphere inside the school. "Oh my gosh, all the pain."
Added Nakisha BEALS: "A lot of people are crying in there. Dozens of people crying. It's so tragic. I feel so sorry for the family. They didn't even know where she was, they'd been looking for her."
And, from another student who would not give a name: "It's been hell on Earth."
Students learned about the death of the 17-year-old girl shortly after classes commenced. Faculty had been summoned to a staff meeting where the principal is said to have broken the news. Each teacher was given a sheet of paper that contained a picture of the deceased and the few details then known, with instructions to tell their students what had happened. It was decided, after consultation with Catholic school board authorities, that this would be more appropriate than announcing the death over the public address speaker.
A fleet of grief counsellors descended -- enough to take every class under wing. Later in the afternoon, with the school's flag lowered to half-mast, a prayer service was held for the dead girl.
"It is with great sadness that we confirm the untimely and accidental tragic death of one of our students," Mary Joe DEIGHEN, spokesperson for the school board, told reporters, reading at first from a prepared statement. "The staff and students of James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic School have suffered a great loss.
"This school has been under a lot of media attention during the past few days. I am asking and demanding that the press allow this community to grieve quietly. This has been requested by students and staff of this community.
"This accidental death is in no way, in no way, related or connected to the previous experience... we've been experiencing at this school."
DEIGHEN added: "They're grieving, they're hurt. We're hoping to start a healing process. But it's going to take a long time."
Out of respect for the deceased, the school cancelled an academic awards celebration -- 116 winners -- that had been scheduled for last night.
It was only one more small way in which the lives of these students have been overwhelmed by recent events. Unhappiness and volatile resentment were already thick on the ground following the arrest of the boys -- some of them athletes -- early in the week, after a 16-year-old girl told a teacher, then the police, that she had been sexually assaulted repeatedly since September 2004. Those assaults allegedly occurred both on and off school property.
The boys, who were handcuffed in front of their peers when removed from class or the corridors, spent the night in jail and all were granted bail on Tuesday. Since then, much of the student body appears to have closed rank around the male youths, with appallingly little sympathy expressed for the alleged victim.
In this hard attitude towards the girl, the students seem to be following a tone set by some parents of the accused. One mother, after bailing out her son, complained loudly that the girl had "been caught," suggesting she was a willing participant to whatever transpired, as some sort of 16-year-old predator.
Several parents, fiercely protective of their sons, have also lobbed accusations of racism and racial profiling by police, because all the accused are black and the alleged victim is white. Police adamantly deny this.
It seems not to have occurred to anyone that, if there were any racism at work in this alleged matter, it might be of the reverse variety -- a white girl allegedly victimized by a large number of black youth.
Four were charged with sexual assault and forcible confinement and 10 with criminal harassment. Two females have also been charged with making threats. Because of their age, none can be identified.
Parents are also livid over how the arrests were conducted, claiming they were not informed beforehand, with some further accusing the school of not protecting their kids, permitting them to be humiliated in front of other students. These issues were among the subjects of a tense meeting with school and police officials on Wednesday evening, attended by about 250 parents.
All the boys have been suspended from school and ordered to give up their cellphones and pagers, pending trial. They will be permitted to attend classes at any other school that might accept them.
The girl has not returned to class.
It doesn't take a scholar to see why.

Life and tragic death of a woman who cared
By Rosie DIMANNO, Page B2
Kindness killed Bernice Wee Choo LIM.
"That would be about right," says Det. Dave JAMES, the 32 Division officer who originally investigated the vicious late September assault that, one week ago, became murder.
What a grim city Toronto has become when the killing of a sweet, endlessly thoughtful 70-year-old woman merits barely a mention in the newspaper.
Perhaps only gangland slayings are sexy these days, where drive-by assailants shoot at funeral mourners in broad daylight, as occurred yesterday.
LIM was a 70-year-old nurse from Singapore, proud naturalized Canadian citizen and professional caregiver, mostly for elderly Alzheimer's sufferers because that was the only kind of work she could get. But she was awfully good at it, tender and vigilant, beloved by all with whom she came in contact, particularly the families of those she tended.
"She was a rock during the earlier stages of my mother's Alzheimer's," says Sandi HOFBAUER. LIM cared for her mom for 2 1/2 years, before the woman was put into resident care.
"On her own, she bought children's building blocks, with the letters on them, and children's books where you connect the dots, just to help keep my mother's mind focused. I used to give my mom envelopes with money to pay everyday bills and of course she kept misplacing the cash. Bernice would find money all over the place but she always gave it back to us. I mean, we would never even have known the money was missing if Bernice hadn't returned it. She was so trustworthy."
It was as a favour to a friend, another caregiver, that LIM opened her home to a 29-year-old man who'd been arrested and charged with assault with a weapon. The man was her friend's son. It was at this woman's bidding that LIM took herself to court for the man's bail hearing. The accused was freed on bail.
"A condition of his bail was that he live at her residence," says JAMES.
Ten days later, it is alleged that this same man, reportedly angry over his curfew restraints, seized a screwdriver and stabbed LIM in the head and neck. That was some time in the evening and the grievously injured victim lay there, alone, bleeding profusely, unable to move, unable to summon help.
The following morning, a man showed up at the police station, claiming he had stabbed a woman. Police rushed to the Wilson Ave. home and found LIM barely alive. She was taken to Sunnybrook, where she clung tenaciously to life for several weeks, conscious and alert for much of that time but in extreme pain.
"She was a tiny woman but one tough lady," says HOFBAUER, who visited LIM in hospital repeatedly. "She couldn't speak and she was paralyzed from the chest down. But you could tell, just from looking in her eyes, that she had every intention of surviving."
That didn't happen. With infection wracking her body, LIM succumbed to her injuries last Saturday. Had she lived, she would have been a quadriplegic because of the damage inflicted in the brutal assault.
"She'd been stabbed with such force that the screwdriver punctured a piece of bone in her back," says HOFBAUER.
When LIM arrived in Canada 15 years ago, she was a recently divorced woman, all on her own. It takes courage to start again in a new country, knowing no one, her three grown children left behind. Those children, and her ex-husband, all rushed to Toronto after they learned of what happened.
Last night, a funeral service was held for LIM. Her remains will be cremated and the family will take the ashes back to Singapore in a few days.
Stoic and intensely private, in the Chinese way, the family expresses no bitterness toward Canada and the violence that befell LIM here. "They're lovely people," says JAMES. But they're bewildered with a judicial system that allowed a man charged with a violent crime to go free on bail, delivering him essentially into the custody of a little old lady.
"I'm livid that somebody (charged with a violent crime)... would be allowed to go free," says HOFBAUER, who arrived at the hospital last Saturday only minutes after LIM had passed away. "The hospital did take wonderful care of her. All the nurses on the ward had fallen in love with her. That's just what everybody did with Bernice -- fall in love with her. She was just the most wonderful woman."
In speaking with the staff, some wondered aloud why such tragedies should visit the kindest amongst us. And HOFBAUER recalls someone saying: "Because the rest of us wouldn't have done what she did for that young man."
Roel VINTAYEN was originally charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault. The attempt turned out to be successful.
At LIM's house, her pleasant voice is still heard on the answering machine.
"Hello, this is Bernice..."

Other incidents
At least three other shootings have occurred in Greater Toronto since Friday.

Police responded to a call at 10 a.m. Friday from an injured man at his Woodbridge home. Carlo DIMATTEO, 45, was taken to hospital where he later died. An autopsy confirmed the cause of death was a gunshot wound.
A 22-year-old man was shot in the lower arm near Keele St. and Rogers Rd. in Toronto early yesterday.

Police seek killing motive
Man found dead in Woodbridge Shot in home invasion robbery
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
Forensic investigators spent the weekend searching for clues in a Woodbridge home, hoping to discover what led to the killing of a 45-year-old man Friday.
York Region police said Carlo DIMATTEO died of a gunshot wound during a home invasion robbery at his home on Cipriano Court in the area of Rutherford and Vaughan Mills Rds.
"It was a robbery, but we can't reveal whether anything was taken," York homicide Detective Larry WILSON said yesterday.
Police won't reveal whether DIMATTEO, who worked at the Brampton Chrysler Plant, was targeted. "As far as I know, it had nothing to do with his job," WILSON said.
DIMATTEO made a frantic 911 call about 10 a.m. on Friday, moments after investigators believe he was shot.
Investigators said he revealed little during his call, except that he was injured in a robbery.
DIMATTEO, who was alone in the home at the time of the shooting, died at Sunnybrook hospital about 11: 30 a.m. Neighbours said five people, including three children, lived in the posh two-storey home, which remains cordoned off by police.
Meanwhile, York police have yet to confirm whether a man who collapsed in the driveway of the Pinecrest Motel on Highway 7 in Concord on Friday at about 11: 50 a.m. was also the victim of a homicide. Police said the unidentified man died a short time later in hospital.

Deadly robbery caught on tape
By Morgan CAMPBELL, Staff Reporter
After three weeks of investigation, York Region police have narrowed their search for a Woodbridge man's killers to three men seen on a surveillance camera near his home.
Carlo DIMATTEO, 45, was shot to death on June 24 during an attempted robbery at his house on Cipriano Ct., near Highway 27 and Rutherford Rd.
About half an hour before the shooting, a security camera on a neighbour's home photographed three men and their car, a black 1996 or 1997 two-door Volkswagen Golf with no sunroof.
Police released the photos yesterday in the hope they'll lead to arrests.
"We will apprehend these people because there are only so many Volkswagen Golfs. If we have to interview each person that owns a Volkswagen Golf in the Greater Toronto Area, we will. It's just a matter of time," said Det. Sgt. Bruce WEST of the homicide bureau.
"If the people involved want to contact the homicide bureau we'll be more than willing to talk to them," he said.
WEST said DIMATTEO was shot when the robbery went awry.
"Traditionally, people do home invasions for a specific reason, to steal money or cash," he said. "So in that sense (DIMATTEO) wasn't targeted for a murder, but he was certainly targeted for a home invasion."
DIMATTEO worked at the Brampton Chrysler plant.
He lived with his wife and three children in a two-storey home in a Woodbridge neighbourhood where some homes are worth more than $1 million. WEST said DIMATTEO wasn't known to police.
DIMATTEO was home alone when the break-in occurred about 9: 30 a.m.
At 10 a.m., shortly after he was shot, he made a 911 call to report he had been injured in a robbery. Paramedics treated him at the scene, then took him to Sunnybrook and Women's Health Sciences Centre, where he died at about 11: 30 a.m.
Police are asking anyone with information on DIMATTEO's shooting to call 1-866-876-5423 ext. 7865, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
The slaying was York region's third homicide this year, and the second shooting death in Woodbridge involving a victim who had ties to Brampton.

In memory of my loving husband of 56 years, Paul DIMITRICK who passed away March 1, 2003.
A heart of gold stopped beating
Two shining eyes at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
God knows you had to leave us
But you did not go alone
