CASHORE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-05-03 published
CASHORE, Catherine (1946-2006)
Passed away quietly on April 29, 2006 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Ms. CASHORE, born in Norristown, Pennsylvania, arrived in Canada in 1964 to matriculate at the University of Toronto, from which she earned three degrees. After University, she chose to remain in Toronto and to become a Canadian citizen. She had a long career in library service, most recently in the Medical Sciences Library at the University of Toronto. Catherine's life was rich in accomplishments and in a broad spectrum of interests. She was dedicated to many social causes, working tirelessly in the areas of refugee and labour rights. She was an avid swimmer and an enthusiastic supporter of Canadian figure skating. She traveled widely, particularly enjoying her trips by rail across Canada. She was an accomplished linguist, fluent in four languages. Her love of language drew her to the theatre. Her fascination with the plays of William Shakespeare prompted many visits to the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario. Her greatest joy, however, was Music. She was an active member of several choral groups and Opera companies in Toronto, and she spent many summers exploring a wide range of musical styles and practices at the Canadian Amateur Musicians' Camp in Lakefield, Ontario. Catherine will be greatly missed by her family: her mother, Madeline B. CASHORE, three brothers and their spouses: William J. and Pauline CASHORE, J. Michael and Nedda CASHORE, Thomas J. and Adaline CASHORE: and one sister, Mary C. WILLIHNGANZ, and her husband Walter. In addition, she is survived by three maternal aunts, one uncle, numerous nephews and nieces and one great nephew. After a life of love and of service to others here in Toronto, she leaves behind a wealth of good and cherished Friends. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 354 St Clair Avenue W, on Friday, May 5th, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. A viewing will be held at the Jerrett Funeral Home, 1141 St. Clair Avenue W, Toronto, at 11: 30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. prior to the funeral. All are invited to a gathering to celebrate Catherine's life which will take place in the Holy Rosary Church hall immediately after the funeral service. Interment will be with her family in the U.S. In lieu of flowers the family has requested that contributions be made to a memorial scholarship which will enable future students to attend summer music sessions at Canadian Amateur Musicians' Camp, Ontario. Contributions may be made at the Jerrett Funeral Home or directly to Canadian Amateur Musicians' Camp, Ontario. For information contact the office at: e-mail: ontario@cammac.ca or phone 1-866-273-7697.

CASHORE, Catherine -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Page M5
'She knew that time was precious," said Mary WILLIHNGANZ, Catherine CASHORE's sister. "She knew she had one year left, and she did what she loved."
For Ms. CASHORE, that meant dining out with Friends, going to Stratford and singing in the chorus of her favourite ensembles. Ms. CASHORE was born in 1946, in Pennsylvania, and came to Toronto at 18. After earning three degrees at the University of Toronto, she found a job in the university's library system.
Ms. CASHORE was very aware of the rights of the oppressed -- which Ms. WILLIHNGANZ said was taught them by their father, and she made several trips to Nicaragua in the 1980s.
"Looking around her apartment, I found one button after another from every human-rights cause you could ever espouse," her sister said. "She lived a life of simplicity, never covetous or jealous of the successes of others."
Ms. CASHORE died of cancer on April 29. Her funeral was held yesterday, with the family directing memorial donations to the Canadian Amateur Musicians' Camp in Lakefield, Ontario

A plea for caution as a friend is lost
Man hit by van, then crushed by bus during a bad day on Toronto streets
By Isabel TEOTONIO and Tamara CHERRY, Staff Reporters
When Mark stepped outside for an early morning smoke break yesterday, he was just moments away from watching an acquaintance die in the middle of the street.
"I shook him to see if he was aware, awake and alive," recalled Mark, an employee at a Wilson Ave. coffee shop who ran to the scene where the victim had been struck by a van, then crushed beneath a Toronto Transit Commission bus. Mark asked that his last name not be used.
"His face was gushing blood, his head was cracked and his hands were clear, lifeless," said Mark, who immediately recognized the victim as the mentally challenged man with a limp who often stood outside the shop asking employees for coffee and customers for change. "I'm really shaken up. To watch a guy die in front of you is really hard."
The "guy" was 65-year-old Allan FELDMAN -- one of several pedestrians struck in a spate of traffic accidents yesterday morning that occurred throughout the city. Feldman was the only fatality.
At about 7: 20 a.m. the Toronto man stepped in front of a westbound bus that was stopped on Wilson Ave., near Bathurst St. Passengers were getting on and off as FELDMAN crossed in front, said police. As he passed, he was struck by a minivan that knocked him under the bus. Unaware he was on the ground, the bus driver accelerated and the man was killed almost instantly. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
"This is a tragic accident and we encourage pedestrians and drivers to be as careful as they can," said Sgt. Jim CASSELLS of Traffic Services. "It appears it was the rear (bus) wheels that ran over him."
In the hours following the incident, police and Toronto Transit Commission staff worked to pinpoint exactly which bus had hit the man so they could interview the driver. The driver of both the van and the bus have been interviewed, but police say it is too early in their investigation to determine whether charges will be laid.
A Toronto Transit Commission spokesperson refused to comment because of the ongoing police investigation.
"People are feeling the loss of a friend," said Sandy KESHEN, executive director of Reena, an organization that services people with developmental disabilities and runs a support home where FELDMAN lived. "Allan was a fiercely independent man and he had a wicked sense of humour."
Eric WOLFMAN, manager of Bagel World, where FELDMAN often started his day with a free coffee and twister, recalled him as a "happy go-lucky guy."
"He always sat in the same seat -- in the corner -- and loved to talk about sports," said WOLFMAN. " Sometimes his thoughts were all over the place… but he was well-informed."
Although FELDMAN could at times be a "nuisance" when asking customers for spare change or cigarettes, he was never aggressive and "didn't have a hurtful bone in his body," said the manager.
Less than an hour earlier, around 6: 40 a.m. in the city's northwest, a 21-year-old man escaped major injury, again in a hit-and-run incident.
About 40 minutes later, a vehicle struck a woman on Bathurst St. near Fairlawn Ave. The woman, believed to be about 80, was found conscious and breathing before being taken to hospital in serious, but stable condition.
And at about 8 a.m. an 11-year-old child was hurt in a hit-and-run incident in the Bloor West Village area, near Dundas St. W. and Keele St. The child was found "conscious and breathing and crying, so that's a good sign," said Staff Sgt. Noël LEE. Police are seeking a white van that left the scene.
Yesterday's events came on the heels of a tragic incident Wednesday night in Richmond Hill when a car killed a 37-year-old mother of four who was out jogging.
FELDMAN's funeral will be held Sunday at 11: 30 a.m. at Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel on Steeles Ave. W. Interment will follow in the Pride of Israel Synagogue section of Mount Sinai Memorial Park.

JOHNSTON, Robert H.
By Alan CASSELS, Page A16
Professor, wit, raconteur, thespian. Born July 29, 1937, in Toronto. Died October 19, 2005, in Hamilton, Ontario, of cancer, aged The bare facts of Bob JOHNSTON's life and career read like those of a conventional academic. Although he was indeed a successful academic, he was also so much more.
Educated in English boarding schools, he obtained his degrees in history from the University of Toronto and Yale University. After teaching briefly at the University of Calgary, in 1969 he came to McMaster University where he remained for the rest of his career. He published two well-received books on Russian history and a number of articles, but what a legion of Friends and colleagues remember most fondly about him is his life outside the classroom and library.
Bob JOHNSTON was at his best in company. He was a brilliant conversationalist with a Wildean wit. He was particularly adept at pricking pomposity, although he never did so cruelly; often his humour was self-deprecatory. It was perhaps his love of language and words that lay behind his extraordinary linguistic ability; he was one of those rare people who can pick up a foreign language at the drop of a hat. He mastered Russian in a matter of weeks at language school, and from that base he was able to converse easily in their own language with any Polish, Czech or other Slavic visitor to McMaster. Sometimes he would surprise by revealing unexpected familiarity with a language; I once recall him interpreting to my astonishment a rude word someone had uttered in Afrikaans. In France, the natives would often mistake him for one of their own.
No doubt a photographic memory (for certain things) aided his linguistic prowess. He could recite -- or sing, because he had a fine voice -- a vast amount of opera from Mozart to Gilbert and Sullivan. The prompter was seldom used when Bob JOHNSTON was on stage in the many amateur theatrical productions in which he appeared in the Hamilton area. Those with whom he acted have been heard to say he could have enjoyed a professional theatrical career had he chosen.
They say that teaching is a form of acting. Bob's thespian and story-telling ability meant that his classes were invariably the history department's most popular. The drudgery of academic administration did not seem a fit with his lively and irreverent spirit. Yet, in his last years before retirement, he assumed the chairmanship of McMaster's history department, as well as a decanal post. He was successful in these roles -- thanks to a generous tolerance of his colleagues' foibles.
In spite of an outward mien of a debonair boulevardier, Bob was also capable of a steely determination. Left wheelchair-bound after an operation for cancer and a professional opinion that he would never walk again, he resolved to disprove the prognosis. He put himself through extensive hydrotherapy treatment, and was featured as a model patient in a television clip of a Hamilton hydrotherapy clinic. First, he graduated from wheelchair to walker, and in due course was able to take several steps unaided; for example, from lobby to theatre seat at the Stratford and Shaw festivals. His Friends remain torn between joy at this exceptional triumph over physical adversity and sorrow that he had so little time in which to enjoy his recovered partial mobility.
Bob JOHNSTON never married, but he was quintessentially a ladies' man. In his last difficult days, it was noticeable that he managed, under heavy sedation, to respond best to the female visitors at his bedside. A memorial service at McMaster attracted probably the largest audience ever for such an occasion. It was a fitting tribute to a multidimensional personality with a remarkable talent for Friendship.
Alan CASSELS is Bob JOHNSTON's friend of 36 years.
