COMPER, Gabrielle Noelle " Geb"
By Paul COMPER
Nurse, artist, mother. Born January 26, 1913 in Marengo, Saskatchewan. Died August 21, 2005, in Chippawa, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 92.
Before she married in 1941, Gabrielle COMPER's maiden name was Gabrielle Noelle Marie Antoinette DUBÉ. However, even as children, we knew and referred to her simply as "Geb," but our familiarity with her assuredly was not contemptuous. Fact is, our beloved mother, who stood no more than 5-foot-3 and lived until she was almost 93, commanded respect. As kids, if we acted up in church, Geb would hold our hands together by our thumbs with one hand while she tickled us mercilessly with the other, until we all dissolved in laughter and promised to behave. We even had neighbourhood contests to see who would be able to escape her one-handed dual thumb-lock; no one ever did. We had no idea where she got her sheer strength, although we suspected it came from wrangling cows out on that forsaken, Marengo, Saskatchewan., homestead that grampa DUBÉ settled at the beginning of the 20th century. Indeed, had her dad not moved from Quebec to Marengo, Geb would no doubt have grown up in Rivière-du-Loup, which is where most of her family originated. She was so proud of her Québécois ancestry, Geb often told us that her roots went right back to Samuel de Champlain.
Way back in the late 1930s, Gabrielle was a registered nurse at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto -- but she was much more than that. She was an intellect, a voracious reader and a consumer of current events. She had firm opinions on every subject and, if you didn't agree with her, well, tough for you.
She was passionate about her community, her church and her marriage of 53 years to our dad, Frank. She loved her kids, adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and tried her best to protect all of us from harm. She taught us to respect others, especially those less fortunate. She worried that our family, scattered by circumstance and opportunity, would drift apart after she passed on.
She valued education and, at the age of 70, having long since retired from the nursing profession, Geb completed a fine arts degree at Ontario College of Art. She admitted she initially found painting male nudes in class mildly unnerving, although she wryly remarked later that the presence of the models was the main reason it took her 10 years to finish her courses.
Because she was so long-lived, Geb saw it all, or at least most of the important historical and social milestones of the last century, including the end of the Great War; the discoveries of insulin and penicillin; the Great Depression and the western dustbowl; the Second World War, the "new" Canadian flag, Watergate, computers, Video Cassette Recorders and non-stick frying pans.
Of all of these, the introduction of Teflon was most appreciated by Geb because, tragically, she was not a good cook; breakfast time at our house was usually spent scraping carbonized toast to render it edible. One time she accidentally dropped a dozen freshly poached eggs down the back of dad's collar as he sat innocently reading the paper and if she'd been able to stop laughing long enough to pour water on him, his burns might not have been so severe. And brother, could she laugh -- at just about every situation, but particularly at herself. Sometimes she would laugh so hard before getting to the punch line of a joke that we feared she'd die telling it.
Right to the end of her life, despite the fact that she was in the grip of a progressing dementia, Geb retained the essential elements of her personality, especially her wit and her charm. Aware that life wasn't always fair, she accepted that fact gracefully. She was a terrific friend, a wonderful mother and a true Canadian, and we will miss her.
Paul COMPER is Geb's son.

Dad, 2 daughters killed in collision
By Debora VAN BRENK, Daniela SIMUNAC, April KEMICK and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Wed. May 31, 2006
A London man and his two daughters were killed Monday in a head-on collision so violent police weren't sure at first how many people had died.
John DAUBS, 49, and daughters, Ashley, 15, and Stephanie, 12, died when their car was crushed beneath a flatbed towed by a dump truck on Clarke Road near Kilally Road in the city's northeast.
Police are investigating whether the collision was intentional, mechanical or accidental, London police Const. Amanda PFEFFER said.
"It really is indescribable."
As word of the deaths spread at Clarke Road secondary school, where Ashley was in Grade 9, students there were overwhelmed with grief, said friend Taylor WAREHAM.
"People who knew (Ashley) were really upset and confused," said WAREHAM, who was on the track and field team with the popular student.
"There were so many people crying in the hallways. (Ashley) was such a happy outgoing girl," said Jordan CLAYTON, 15, a friend who laid flowers at the crash scene last night.
Friends described the 15-year-old track star as funny, athletic and outgoing, well-liked by peers.
Her younger sister, Stephanie, who was in Grade 7 at Bonaventure Meadows elementary school, was remembered by those who knew her as a smart, friendly, athletic girl with lots of Friends.
"She was always happy," said Murtaza REZAZADA, in Stephanie's class last year.
Carolyn WEBB, a retired Bonaventure kindergarten teacher who taught both girls and stayed in touch with the family, said the pair were "wonderful, loveable girls."
WEBB said John and his wife Debbie had recently separated, but the family remained tight.
"The parents were so dedicated to those girls -- they did everything for them," WEBB said, wiping her eyes.
"This is so devastating."
John's sister, Diane HALES, said last night the family was shocked to hear of the triple fatality early yesterday.
HALES said John was a "doting" dad who was a regular at the girls' many athletic and musical events.
"(John) was a proud father," she said, adding the two girls were "inseparable."
Those who knew John at the trailer park where he had lived and worked as manager for the last 10 years agreed.
"As a dad, he was always there for them," said Jim ANDREW, owner of the London Terrace trailer park on Dundas Street.
"John was very involved."
Overnight and into yesterday, a blue tarp covered the Chevy Citation, flattened by the dump truck.
Yesterday, about 12 London police officers walked shoulder to shoulder examining the road for evidence.
Another 10 blue-gloved officers scoured the ditches and the road edge, searched for clues that might explain why the northbound car slammed into the southbound truck.
The vehicles -- car, dump truck and a backhoe still secured to the truck's flatbed -- were pulled from the scene, but the road wasn't re-opened until yesterday, allowing police to investigate.
Police have interviewed the truck driver, who suffered minor injuries in the crash.
A dog in the car died yesterday.
Police ask any witnesses: to the crash to call 661-5670.

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.

Storm topples tree on woman
By Jennifer O'BRIEN and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Fri., October 13, 2006
Filomena PALMEIRI shelters herself with a blanket from a howling snow squall yesterday. She was watching her son's football team from Mother Teresa high school battling the Saint Thomas Aquinas high school team at Aquinas's field in London. (Dave CHIDLEY, The London Free Press)
Yesterday's unexpected snowsqualls and wind gusts broke a large tree that fell on and seriously injured an elderly woman.
It was just one of many calls paramedics faced yesterday because of slick roads and weather-related injuries.
The elderly woman was walking along Central Avenue near Wellington Street when the tree fell.
"She sustained extensive internal injuries," said Middlesex-London Emergency Medical Services duty manager Chris DARBY.
"She was not trapped under the tree, but she was under a branch. Paramedics were able to immobilize her and treat her before transporting her" to hospital.
The woman was simply "in the wrong place at the wrong time," DARBY said.
Accidents occurred throughout the day, including one at Adelaide and Oxford streets, where a vehicle crashed into a former bank building, DARBY said.
The injuries in that crash were not serious.
A car crash southeast of London that claimed the life of a 27-year-old Langton woman also was blamed on slick and snow-covered roads.
Norfolk County Ontario Provincial Police said the driver of a minivan that slid into oncoming traffic on Concession Road 2 in the former Houghton Township near Tillsonburg died from her injuries.
Jaclyn SZALKAI, 27, of Langton, was pronounced dead in a Tillsonburg hospital after the 2 p.m. crash. Ontario Provincial Police said snow and slush-covered roads contributed to the crash.
Another crash south of London sent a minivan driver to hospital with minor injuries. The driver in that crash T-boned a dump truck, which slid into the opposite lane of traffic.
The truck driver steered his vehicle back into the southbound lane of Highbury Avenue near Westminster Drive and wasn't injured. He was on his way home because he'd been told Highway 401 was too slick to work on.
The fall blast of snow caused havoc elsewhere in London yesterday.
Blinded by the snow, University of Western Ontario students, many in T-shirts, raced for the nearest cover.
The first squall dismayed students taking part in a Bike for A.I.D.S. bike-athon outside Western's University Community Centre.
"Oh no, this was not supposed to happen," groaned organizer Samantha ROBERTSON, holding an arm over her face to block the wind as balloons danced behind her and jugs holding donations tipped over.
"What the hell is going on?" shrieked a woman, head down as she plowed through a white wall of snow.
"Um, Okay folks, we are just going to break for a few minutes here and reassess the situation," announced the lead singer of a band that had been playing on a stage.
While organizers did so, students ran in all directions, often bumping into one another in the scramble.
But not even wintry weather could break the spirit of the 150 people participating in the bike-athon, designed to raise money to buy bikes for workers with African A.I.D.S. agencies.
"Well, I guess it's a tradition," Jackie STRECKER said. "The first year we ran it in April and it snowed, so this year we moved it to October, and look at this."
Though the snow may have come as a surprise to most people, it isn't really out of the ordinary, an Environment Canada meteorologist said.
"This time of year, the air masses travel across the Great Lakes…. You're warm, then the next day you're cold. That's the way it goes," Andre Cyr said.
Yesterday's snowsqualls came to southern Ontario after crossing Lake Michigan and tossed about one centimetre of snow onto London.
That's far from the record, said Cyr, citing a 6.8-centimetre dump on October 12, 1988.
Flurries are expected to return tonight when the low dips to -2°C. Highs for the next few days will be in the high single digits, well below the normal high for this time of year of 14.9°C.
Analynda MIELKE and Bill CHERNIAK of University of Western Ontario's Triathlon Club were at the bottom of a hill when the snow hit.
"It was really, really intense," said MIELKE, her face wet.
Though wacky weather may have cut into on-site donations for the event, organizers of the bikeathon still hoped to reach their $10,000 goal, STRECKER said. Each of 14 teams paid $200 to take part and a charity party was planned for last night.
Last year the event raised $7,500, which bought about 32 bikes to be sent to A.I.D.S. workers in Africa.

Sault Ste. Marie mourns loss of first officer killed on the job
By Canadian Press, Mon., May 15, 2006
Sault Ste. Marie -- Police in Sault Ste. Marie are mourning the loss of the first-ever city officer to die on the job.
Senior Const. Donald DOUCET was a passenger in a police cruiser that collided with a minivan about 2: 45 a.m. yesterday in the city's east end.
Platoon chief Terry DUBOIS said firefighters had to use the jaws of life to free both officers and the driver of the minivan from their vehicles, but the 41-year-old DOUCET died a short time later in hospital.
The second officer and the driver of the minivan were also injured in the collision.
A 29-year-old woman is in police custody and is set to appear in bail court today.
Transport driver Stephan LAVOIE said he was sleeping in his parked rig when he heard the collision's impact.
"It's a big bang," he said.
The Quebec City resident looked out his cab's front window, but saw nothing unusual, and went back to sleep.
"I said, 'Maybe it's a tire blowout,'" LAVOIE said.
It wasn't until around 7: 30 a.m. that LAVOIE learned what happened from another transport driver.
"I remembered I heard something in the night. It's so painful," he said, tapping his heart.
DOUCET, who had served on the Sault force for 12 years, is survived by his wife, Debbie, and his daughters Jocelyne, 19, and Courtney, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty expressed his condolences to the officer's family, Friends and colleagues.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Senior Const. DOUCET's family," McGuinty said yesterday in a news release. "Policing is dangerous work that takes a special commitment to community service. Sometimes our officers make the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty and such a loss is a tragedy for us all."
