PRESLEY--In loving memory of a dear friend and cousin Fran, who passed away May 4, 2004.
I watched you suffer,
Heard you sigh
And all I could do
Was stand by.
But when the time came,
I suffered too.
You never deserved
What you went through.
God took your hand
We had to part.
He eased your pain
But broke my heart.
Although I smile,
And seem carefree
No one misses you
More than me.
Gone but not forgotten, Lynn Spry.

And we sit in quiet alone,
To our hearts there comes a longing
If she only could come home.

When at times they see us smile
But they little know the heartache
Our smiles hide all the while.

Family says farewell to slain couple
'You shouldn't have to defend your name,' niece says, reacting to Mexican allegations
By Jeff GRAY/GREY with a report from Timothy APPLEBY and Canadian PRESS, Page A9
Woodbridge, Ontario -- At a funeral in front of hundreds of mourners, the grieving niece of the suburban Toronto couple found slain in their Mexican hotel room said her uncle should not have to defend his name from beyond the grave.
"At this time, you shouldn't have to defend your name," Rosanna IANIERO said in a eulogy at St. Clare of Assisi Church in Woodbridge, addressing the late Domenico IANIERO. "… There is only goodness attached to it."
Her remarks, made in a brief, emotional speech about the IANIEROs, grandparents from Woodbridge whom she described as loving and caring, appeared meant to respond to reports that Mexican investigators have suggested the victims may have had links to "illicit activities."
On February 20, Mr. IANIERO, a 59-year-old real-estate agent, and his 55-year-old wife, Annunziata, were found with their throats slit at an upscale Mayan Riviera resort near Cancun where their daughter, Lily, was to have married on the beach.
While initially suspecting two Canadian women staying at the hotel, Mexican investigators have shifted their focus to the family and to people who knew the victims. York Regional Police have been asked by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who are working with Mexican authorities, to assist in the investigation, and say they hope to start interviewing the 16-member wedding party today. Others may be questioned as well.
As recently as Friday, Mexican lead prosecutor Bello Melchor Rodriguez y Carrillo suggested that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had said "the slain person had ties with illicit activities." The Mounties have said they have no evidence to link Mr. and Mrs. IANIERO to organized crime.
Yesterday began with a ceremony at a funeral home. Outside, as pallbearers prepared to lift the two wooden coffins into waiting hearses, two white doves were released from a wicker basket to symbolize the couple's souls ascending to heaven, followed by the release of two dozen more doves meant to symbolize their Friends and family.
Later, outside the large, recently constructed church, more than a dozen television cameras and newspaper photographers with stepstools and telephoto lenses captured mourners as they arrived.
More than 300 people filed into the church for the hour-long service. The immediate family sat up front. son Anthony IANIERO, who spoke to the media after the killings, and his wife were the first to take communion.
The couple's niece, a slender blond woman in a black dress and the only direct member of the family to speak at the ceremony, said that the IANIEROs "dedicated their lives to the well-being of their children" and touched many lives with their kindness.
"They loved nothing more than to be in a room filled with music, laughter and the people they cared about," she said.
She described her aunt as an angel, her voice cracking: "I will never forget how you loved my son… as though he was your own."
The slain couple, married for 37 years, had been "graceful" when they danced. They both had been born in Italy but met in Canada in 1964 after their families immigrated. They were married in 1968, and had one son and three daughters.
During the service, Reverend John BOREAN alluded to the tragic nature of the couple's deaths, and urged mourners to remember the Christian ideal of forgiveness.
"I think we need to put forgiveness in our hearts for those people who would have committed such a crime," he said, adding that the criminals must be prevented from killing again.
Outside the church, however, many said the path to reconciliation would be difficult to forge.
"We really celebrate the lives of two people today, but hopefully one day we'll also celebrate justice," Liberal member of Parliament Maurizio BEVILACQUA, who represents the riding of Vaughan, where Woodbridge is located, said after the service.
There has been intense scrutiny of the Mexican authorities' handling of the case. Witnesses: at the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort at the time of the killing have raised concerns about the professionalism of the Mexican police, some alleging that the crime scene was contaminated. Mexican authorities had suggested two Thunder Bay women were the killers, but no longer see them as suspects, sources say.
Peter Van Loan, parliamentary secretary to Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay, attended the funeral and told reporters he was satisfied with the investigation's progress.
York Police Inspector Les YOUNG, who attended the funeral in uniform, said the family is anxious to speak with police about the case. "They're very concerned about the rumours and innuendoes," he said.

PRESTON, Sheila Delia K.
By Ann SILVERSIDES, Page A16
Executive medical secretary, mother, friend. Born June 29, 1922, in Howth, Ireland. Died September 18, 2005, in Toronto, of complications after a fall, aged 83.
Sheila never knew who her father was, but speculated that she was the illegitimate daughter of a murdered Irish patriot. This wasn't necessarily just the romantic daydream of a woman who was never told the identity of her father. After all, her mother Delia's close Friends included William O'BRIEN, the Irish member of Parliament, journalist and author (1852-1928), and his wife Sophie, also an author. William and Sophie were Sheila's godparents, and she and her mother spent holidays with the O'BRIEN's at their home in Mallow. After William died, and Delia married Joseph O'ROURKE, Sheila continued to spend most of her boarding school holidays with Sophie, who dedicated one of her books to Sheila.
While working at the War Office in London, Sheila fell in love with a Canadian, Royal Canadian Air Force pilot Lou H. PARKER, and made plans to return to Canada with him. PARKER was shot down and killed in the spring of 1945, but remained the love of her life. A black and white photo of the two of them in uniform, standing in a doorway, was on her bedside table after her death. An immaculate and stylish dresser all her life, Sheila rarely went out without her Royal Canadian Air Force wing pin on her lapel, in memory of her great love.
Sheila married another Canadian on the rebound, and came to Canada when she was pregnant with her first child, daughter Leueen. That union fell apart several years after their son, Kevin, was born with Down syndrome. Sheila never remarried.
She worked as a secretary in Chalk River, Ontario, and then, in the early 1960s, with my father at the Addiction Research Foundation in Toronto. That association let to her lifelong Friendship with our family, with many holiday visits to our log house near Perth, Ontario
Sheila was fiercely intelligent with an extraordinary memory that made lesser mortals (like me) feel woefully ignorant. She kept up to date about current affairs and was a student of history especially military, particularly aviation. She scribbled margin notes in her many books about the Second World War, commenting on (and often disputing) the facts.
She was fierce in her devotion to Kevin, who, as an adult, lived in a Toronto group-home until his death in 2001. It saddened and angered Sheila that some of Kevin's group-home peers were virtually abandoned by their families.
After working for physicians at several Toronto hospitals, Sheila ended her career at St. Michael's Hospital. Family practice residents of the late 1970s to late 1980s will no doubt remember her organizational skills and her insistence on good manners.
In retirement, Sheila made several trips home to Ireland and was interviewed by Irish radio about her memories of her famous godparents.
An early tenant of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood, Sheila spent the last 15 years of her life in subsidized housing for seniors in east-end Toronto. She was grateful for the housing and railed against the "sheer stupidity" of politicians who chose not to understand that adequate housing is the key prerequisite to health and well being. She wrote about these concerns to politicians and media figures, and gave a significant portion of her limited income to charities she approved.
Sheila didn't suffer fools, but was noted for her small courtesies and thank-you notes to those she appreciated.
Sheila was predeceased her son and is survived by many Friends as well as her sister Margaret, daughter Leueen, son-in-law Bill and grandchildren Michael, Kathleen and Patrick.
Ann is a friend of Sheila PRESTON.

SCHUETT, Margaret Mary "Peggy" (née BURK/BURKE) (1921-2006)
Of Calgary, Alberta, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 20, 2006 at the age of 85 years. Peggy was born March 5, 1921 at Kingston, Ontario to Albert and Margaret (SULLIVAN) BURK/BURKE. One of five children, she grew up in a proud Irish Catholic family. During the war, Peggy worked in Ottawa and then returned to Kingston where she met her husband George. They married June 21, 1943 and crossed Canada many times, living in 17 cities and 5 provinces. An independent and resourceful woman, Peggy moved with their three children in advance of her husband to set up the new family home. She loved entertaining the many Friends and family with whom she and George shared their lives, but she treasured her quiet time also, creating beautiful needlework and tending her adored garden. When George retired, he and Peggy began travelling the country returning to places they loved and exploring the many parts of Canada, making new memories and new Friends along the way. After George passed away suddenly in 1978, Peggy went to work for ten years until she retired. Her greatest legacy was the inspiration she provided her family: an open-minded spirit, tireless perseverance, and enthusiasm and joy for life. Her greatest influence is most evident in the imaginations and independence of her three children, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Peggy was caring, humble, romantic, and accepting of everyone. There was never a person who met her who did not love her fun loving and generous spirit. Peggy smiled all the days of her life including her last in spite of the burden of Alzheimer's disease. She was a source of joy for everyone she knew. Family and Friends alike will remember her as 'Grandma Peggy' with a ready smile and a 'twinkle in her eye'. Full of fun and always enjoying a good laugh, Peggy brought life to every gathering. Peggy was so proud of her family and is survived by her two daughters, Margie SCHUETT of Toronto and Kate MUNOZ (John PRESTON) of Calgary by her son and daughter-in-law, Bob and Cheryl SCHUETT of Calgary by her six grandchildren, Jennifer and her husband Dick McDOUGALL, Karen (Chris GRAHAM,) John (Lindsey HODGSON) of Toronto, Rebecca (Ryan KALMACOFF,) Robbie and Megan; and by her four great-grandchildren, Robyn, Blake, Abby and Burke McDOUGALL. She is also survived by a brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Mary BURK/BURKE of Drumheller, their children, Julie, Dan and Mark (Natalie) and their families her niece Jackie; her nephew Hugh.
