ELLIS, Maxine (January 16, 1921-March 12, 2005)
You left this world for a far better place,
A trip we can take if we've been saved by His grace.
For Jesus said -- and I'm sure it's true,
"I will go and prepare a place for you."
You said good-bye to loved ones here,
Not easy to do when the end draws near.
You also said, "I have not done this before and so I can't tell you when I'm going to go."
The pain and suffering you bore are gone,
You left an example we'll carry on.
You're now where your hopes have finally come true,
But the one missing in our lives each day is you!
Forever in our hearts
Love from all your gang

Duo sought after killing
By Canadian Press, Tues., March 14, 2006
Toronto -- Police were searching for a young mother and her seven-month-old daughter who may have a connection to Toronto's latest homicide.
Police found the body of Christopher PELLEW, 22, in north Toronto Sunday.
Investigators discovered a trail in the mud suggesting the body had been dragged about 50 metres, Supt. Roy PILKINGTON said. It led to a basement apartment.
When police arrived, the front door was open. Tenants Zalika ELLIS, 19, and her seven-month-old daughter, Zahara, were gone.
"It was apparent that they had left in quite the hurry," PILKINGTON said.
ELLIS's family is concerned for her safety, police said.

North York shooting is city's 11th homicide
By Jeffrey HAWKINS, Page A12
Police were searching North York yesterday for a young mother and her seven-month-old daughter who may have a connection to the city's latest homicide.
At 9 p.m. Sunday, police found the body of 22-year-old Christopher PELLEW on Lindylou Road, in the Finch Avenue West and Weston Road area of North York.
Mr. PELLEW, Toronto's 11th homicide this year, was fatally shot in the chest, police say.
Superintendent Roy PILKINGTON of 31 Division said that after finding the body, investigators discovered a trail in the mud that suggested the body had been dragged about 50 metres through several backyards.
The trail led police to a basement apartment on Daystrom Drive, directly behind Lindylou Road, where the shooting is believed to have occurred.
When police arrived at the residence, across the street from Daystrom Public School, the front door was open and the lights on. The tenants, Zalika ELLIS, 19, and her seven-month-old daughter, Zahara, were gone.
"It was apparent that they had left in quite the hurry," Supt. PILKINGTON said.
Ms. ELLIS's family, who contacted police after hearing about the incident, are concerned for the young woman's safety, police said.
Neighbours on Daystrom Drive, a residential street lined with semi-detached houses, describe Ms. ELLIS as a caring young mother.
"We've never had any trouble with her before," said her next-door neighbour, Christan GAIBOR.
"She's a good mother who keeps to herself," Christan's father, Medardo, added.
"I feel really shocked," said one neighbour who asked not to be named.
"We live in a safe family community with children and schools and parks. This sort of thing just doesn't happen here."
"It's really sad," said a young neighbour who lives adjacent to Ms. ELLIS's home. "I didn't see what happened last night but I'm still scared."
Neighbouring homes were cordoned off by police yesterday and several vehicles were impounded, including one rental car that police believe is associated with the incident.
Mr. PELLEW was "very well known to police" with a "significant criminal record for various crimes," Supt. PILKINGTON said.

He will be greatly missed by his brother James as well as many loving relatives and cherished Friends. Andy is also predeceased by his parents James and Catherine (CLARK,) and his brothers Sam, Al, Jim and sisters Jean (LEES) and Mary (TALLON.)

GILMAN, Betty Elder (SCOTT) (April 12, 1915-September 26, 2006)
Our dear mother passed away in her sleep early on September 26. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Geoffrey. Left to cherish countless memories are daughter Judith (Jonathan RUBES) and son Trevor (Nancy); grandchildren Michael (Cathy), Glen, Dale (Martin,) and Morgan and Colin RUBES; great-granddaughter Audrey and many nieces and nephews. Her only sister, Joyce ELLIS, predeceased her this year. Mum was a generous hostess, an inventive decorator and painter, an exceptional knitter, and, right up to the last days, a killer Scrabble player. She considered herself extremely fortunate to have had 66 wonderfully happy years with Geoff, who left her side less than 6 months ago. Betty and Geoff met and married in war-time London in 1940, and their extraordinary partnership was often referred to by their many Friends as one of the "great romances." We are grateful that she is not alone any longer. The family extends its heartfelt appreciation to Helga MacGREGOR for all her loving care and support as well as the excellent nursing staff at Belmont House, Walker Wing 3 West. As Mum wished, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Belmont House Foundation at 55 Belmont Street, Toronto M5R 1R1, would be most gratefully received.
