VANDERWEYST urged more mammograms for young women
By Susan KIRWIN, Free Press Reporter, Sun., September 17, 2006
Breast cancer isn't an older woman's disease, a reality Krista VANDERWEYST felt passionate about.
The 34-year-old Londoner died July 20 after battling the disease for a year and a half.
"Her biggest thing was that something needed to change," said her best friend, Sara DIPONIO. "If you go to the doctor in your 30s and say you have a lump, many doctors say it's probably nothing."
Krista left behind a three-year-old son, Jack, husband, Jamie VANDERWEYST, and mother, Beth KIRBY.
"Her relationships, whether it was with her family or her close Friends, were precious gifts to her," said DIPONIO.
Krista was just about to finish a second degree in social work at King's College in London while working full time at Canada Life, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
She'd already finished a certificate in addiction counselling.
"She wanted to work with adolescents," said Jamie. "It was about what she could do for us and who she could help."
Krista excelled at school, earning 100 per cent in one of her classes.
"She was well-known by her professors because she was probably always asking a lot of questions," said Jamie.
That same energy and drive, she poured into her battle with cancer.
At the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce Run for the Cure last fall, Krista surprised herself when she defied her fear of public speaking.
"She got up there and she was so confident," said DIPONIO.
Krista told the crowd how her battle with cancer didn't change who she was, said DIPONIO.
She talked about the misconceptions of the disease.
"It's not an older woman's disease," said Krista's mother. "We had no family history of breast cancer."
Krista said more mammograms and biopsies should be done on younger women.
"She wanted to make young women aware that they can insist any lump be biopsied," said DIPONIO. " You have to be your own advocate for your health."
Krista's message reached a lot of women that day.
"She was surprised that she could say something and make a difference," DIPONIO said.

KIRBY, Frances
Who left us December 7, 2005.
I give you this one thought to keep
I am with you still, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not think of me as gone
I am with you still, in each new dawn.
Missing you, love your#494

Slain 20-year-old had promising future
By Hayley MICK, Page A10
Natalie NOVAK left her small Ontario town and found Friends, excitement and love in Toronto. But in the wee hours of Monday, after a night out with her roommates, the 20-year-old Ryerson University student was stabbed to death in her bedroom. Her former boyfriend is accused of second-degree murder.
Police say the Toronto man was under a court order to stay away from Ms. NOVAK. But the young woman, who earned straight A's and was looking forward to an exciting summer in the city, let him back into her life. Now, as police investigate the city's 22nd murder and Ms. NOVAK's parents grieve the loss of their daughter, known to Friends as Nat, the question remains: How could this have happened?
Ms. NOVAK arrived in Toronto three years ago and enrolled in the hotel management program at Ryerson. About a year later, police said, she began a relationship with a recently landed immigrant from Ethiopia whom she met at a store.
In September, after an assault that did not cause Ms. NOVAK serious harm, a court ordered the man to sever contact with her, police said. But the couple continued seeing each other "on and off," Detective Sergeant Gary GIROUX said yesterday.
On May 1, after completing her third year of studies and securing a summer job as a waitress, Ms. NOVAK moved to an old, split-level home at 28 Grange Ave., near the intersection of Spadina Avenue and Dundas Street, with three other students.
Her parents travelled to Toronto and helped her move into the bedroom with a window overlooking the tree-lined street. She cluttered her closet with more that a dozen pairs of shoes and hung a painting depicting a scene from her youth: Northern Ontario's lakes and trees, painted by a relative.
Sean KIRBY, a University of Toronto student who lived in the downstairs suite, said he spoke to Ms. NOVAK a few times and she "seemed like a nice, normal young girl." She and her roommates, two men and a woman, would often hang out on the rooftop patio outside her room.
According to police, on Sunday night Ms. NOVAK and her roommates went out for drinks. Her ex-boyfriend joined them and accompanied Ms. NOVAK back to her home at the end of the evening, police said
Just after 3 a.m., police said, an argument erupted in Ms. NOVAK's room. The shouting turned into screams, they said.
By the time her roommates forced open her door, Ms. NOVAK had suffered fatal stab wounds. Police say her killer crawled out her bedroom window, leaped eight metres from the balcony, and escaped. Police arrested a man 45 minutes later.
Arssei HINDESSA, 30, has been charged with second-degree murder. Police say he is unemployed and not a student. His next court appearance is set for May 23.
Behind the yellow police tape surrounding the home where Ms. NOVAK lived, a dozen white roses have been left along with a picture of a pretty, smiling brunette in a black dress and strappy shoes. A card from Ms. NOVAK's cousin, Alexandrea, reads: "Natalie, we miss you, remember you always."

ARNOLD, Alice (née BARBER) (1932-2006)
Passed away peacefully at Grand River Hospital, Freeport Health Centre on Thursday, April 6, 2006. Loving wife of 48 years to Glen ARNOLD. Mother to Zoë (Mike,) Eve (Tim,) Gwyneth (Murray,) and David (Diana). Grandmother to Sarah, Laura, Eric, Katie, Emily, Angie, Ellen, Hannah and Grace. Sister of Mary CZERNA and Rose BRENNAND (Derrick.) Aunt of Robert, Jeremy, and Victoria. Will be remembered by great nieces Rose and Sophie, sister-in-law of Gwen (Ziggy) KIRCHMEYER and her family Janet (Clyde,) Kathy, and Andrew. Great Aunt of Robbie and Michael. Predeceased by her parents, Elizabeth Hannah (THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON) BARBER (1896-1994,) and Charles FitzRoy (Lord Southampton, 1867-1958, M.B.E. (Debrett's Peerage page 678) and daughter-in-law of the late Eva ARNOLD. Alice went to Harrogate Ladies College, 1940-1949, a private girl's school in Cumbria, England where she studied drama, piano, and violin. Alice immigrated to Canada in 1955 to join her sister, Mary, a speech therapist in Toronto. She met Glen, her future husband to be, at a Club in Toronto in a quiet game of 'knock up' (tennis, anyone?). Alice was part of a generation of women that we now identify as, 'Stay-At-Home Moms', and we became better people as the result of the examples she set in our home: her kindness, generosity and unconditional love. These are some of the qualities she has passed on to us and it is now our turn to live by these examples. Her great strength of character will sustain us in the times ahead. Alice's interests included tennis, music, crafts, and camping with the family, which she referred to fondly as her, 'wilderness experience'. Later, in her return to the work force in the early eighties, she became a member of the Breast Cancer Screening Study Team at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto. Years later, in a move to British Columbia, she became a member of the Quilters Guild of Kelowna and had her work exhibited in many of their shows. Friends and family are blessed with examples of her talent and we treasure these gifts she has left us with. Not for one minute will Alice allow us to forget her beautiful spirit and the unconditional love she gave everyone in her time with us! The Arnold family will receive relatives and Friends at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener (519-7498467) from 11: 30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11, 2006, followed by a celebration of Alice's life at 1: 30 p.m. in the Chapel of the Funeral Home. Cremation has taken place. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Hopespring Cancer Support Centre would be appreciated by the family. (Cards available at the Funeral Home).

The family would like to express their special thanks to the many caring people, under the direction of Doctor Elliot WILLIAMSON and the nurses at the Freeport Palliative Care Centre at the Grand River Hospital.

Couple found dead in bungalow
London police probe the deaths of the woman and man who hadn't been seen for weeks.
By Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporter, Thurs., October 5, 2006
London police are probing how and when a man and woman who lived together on a quiet east-end street died.
The two were found yesterday after neighbours called police, worried they hadn't seen the couple in weeks.
Though there were no obvious signs of trauma to the bodies found in the home, an autopsy will be done as early as today, as Det. Const. Lori-Ann KIRK of the London police major crimes unit.
"They've been in there (dead) for some time -- days, at least," KIRK said outside the couple's bungalow at 1031 King St. E.
Area residents watched as the two blanket-covered bodies were brought out on stretchers just before 6 p.m. yesterday, about two hours after police arrived.
Police said last night they had positively identified the bodies, but had not reached their families.
Neighbours identified the bungalow's occupants as Doug and Carol SHANNON.
The couple kept to themselves, both lived on disability pensions and were in their mid-50s, neighbours said.
"I used to cut their hair and I'd see them around. They had very few visitors," said William ABBOTT, who lives next door and owns a hair-cutting business.
"It's a shock. You don't like to see this for the kids on the street," he added, pausing as the two bodies were loaded into a coroner's vehicle.
The couple had lived in the home, on King between Western Fair and the Kellogg's plant, for about four years, he said.
The last time neighbours saw them was in the middle of last month, as the fair was winding down.
"You'd always see him, at least, going in and out to get smokes and beer," said one neighbour, who didn't want to be identified.
"Then, all of a sudden, you just don't see them anymore."
When the couple's mail began to pile up, neighbours began to worry.
The man had a bad foot and walked with a cane, and the woman had mentioned he might have to have it amputated. Some neighbours thought the two were at the hospital.
ABBOTT said he knocked on the couple's door, and others said they had called the landlord out of concern for the couple.
"A number of calls were made to police (about the occupants)," KIRK said.
Investigators last night were trying to identify the bodies, contact their families and gather evidence from the home, KIRK said.
One neighbour said the man had two grown children, including a son who drove long-distance transport trucks.

KIRK, Norman Earnest (1903-2006)
After a full and long life, Norman E. KIRK, in his 104th year, passed away peacefully, November 24th, at University Hospital, London. He was the last surviving child from the family of Andrew W. and Florence (OWEN) KIRK.

KIRK, Norman
Norman KIRK's family celebrated his life last Tuesday. The blur of the past two weeks has cleared and it is time to reflect and give thanks. The many cards of sympathy, phone calls, memorial gifts, food and personal visits from Friends, neighbours, pensioner club members, lodge brethren, and fellow church members were much appreciated. Though a fiercely independent gentleman, Norman would not have reached the age he did without great and caring support. To his family physician, Doctor PICHE, to his super neighbours Bob and Dianne, and Muriel and Vi; to the health professionals who worked with him at home and in the hospital…thank you very much. Thanks too, to: Needhams for their excellent service; the officers and members of Saint_John's 209a for their memorial service Norman's six grand_sons for acting as pallbearers; the Knox-Wesley ladies for their hard work in providing us lunch; and finally to both Rev. Tom HISCOCK and Rev. Fred McKINNON for providing the guidance, leadership and reassurance we needed. Now, if Norman had been writing this 'thank you' himself, he would simply have said: "Thank you!"
