VITATERNA, Adam
In loving memory of Adam VITATERNA, who passed away January 5, 2005, one year ago today. The tide recedes, But leaves behind Bright seashells on the sand. The sun goes down, But gentle warmth Still lingers on the land. The music stops, And yet it echoes on In sweet refrains... For every joy that passes, Something beautiful remains. Although you are gone, we will always remember your beautiful smile and your wonderful spirit. You taught us so much in 11 years. W.W.A.D. Remembered forever by Frank and Rita DEMARCO, Carlo and Lisa DEMARCO and family and Joe and Rose ELIA and family.

ELIA, Mariano Antonio (1917-2006)
On January 24th, after a lengthy and valiant struggle with cancer, Mariano ELIA passed away at the age of 88. A pioneer in Canadian building history, he left his distinctive mark on Toronto's architectural landscape. Having defied death many times in recent years, it was easy to imagine he'd be back up for yet another round. While most people do less in old age, Mariano continued to seek out new challenges. He was the kind of man who, at the age of 86, bought the house next door to him, not because he needed to, but because it was a gigantic fixer-upper. It wasn't unusual to see him standing atop some scaffolding, oblivious to the danger - that was just his way. Born in 1917, Mariano's story began like that of so many other immigrants coming to Canada. At the age of 12, he left the small town of Aprigliano in Calabria, Italy, and ended up in Toronto after a difficult passage through Ellis Island. One year later, in 1930, he was selling doughnuts door-to-door near his home on Ossington Avenue, struggling to earn some pocket change. Mariano learned construction skills from his father and at the age of twenty-four, started his own company, Dell Holdings (later The Elia Corporation). In the 1950s, Dell was considered one of Canada's top five general contractors. At thirty-four, he developed the country's first successful satellite community, Erindale Woodlands, on 450 acres in Mississauga. The project was considered risky at the time because of its sheer size and rural location. This same drive and determination led him to later build large housing developments, schools and government buildings. For those who knew him well, Mariano was complex, difficult at times, but never dull. "It wasn't just that he was a highly successful businessperson, a visionary really", Harry ARTHURS, his friend and the former president of York University, recently wrote. "It was - for me - that he was a man of such extraordinary character. He had great spirit, great energy and great style. We talked about so many things: politics, children, history, architecture, land development, art, gossip, my university, even figs." Time spent with Mariano often involved some sort of discovery, be it scouting property, discussing the subtleties of paint and light, taking long walks or learning how to cook risotto. He loved to work with his hands: he was a carpenter, bricklayer, a draftsman, a chef and an artist. From an early age, Mariano painted and sculpted - even painting on burlap when he couldn't afford canvas. He enjoyed gardening and even wrote poetry. His Calabrese-style cooking was rustic, improvisational and delicious. In 1984, he created The Mariano Antonio Elia Foundation supporting humanitarian, educational, religious and scientific aims. As he once explained in an interview, "I learned at a very early age that I was in Canadians' backyard. I was the stranger and I was the one that had to adapt. It's my country now… I say I owe a lot to Canada." His commitment to philanthropy continued to grow in his later years. He established The Mariano A. Elia Chair in Italian-Canadian Studies at York University, The Dr. Mariano Antonio Elia Chair in head and Neck Cancer Research at Toronto's Princess Margaret Hospital and The "Off the Wall" Hands-On Centre for Children at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Mariano bore every honour he received with immense pride. In 1985, he accepted an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from York University. He was knighted (Commendatore) by the Italian government in 1988 and was also made First Honorary Citizen of the town of Rende in Calabria. Two years later he was made a Knight of Malta, Sovereign Military Order of Saint John of Jerusalem. Just over a year before he died, Mariano acquired a 100-acre working farm and any given Sunday might be spent with his youngest grandkids, collecting eggs and picking tomatoes. Then it was pasta or a frittata for supper back at his house. Big builder man that he was, this is how his family likes to remember him best. Mariano was the father of Marlene DELZOTTO, Valerie ELIA, Susan ZORZI, Paul ELIA, Mario ELIA and Lisa Elia WALSH; loving nonno of Lia, Michaele, Gian Paolo, Noelle, Rochelle, Sandro, Mariano, Emilio, Luca, Dylan, Kiri and Cody; bisnonno (great-grandfather) of James, Shannon, Alessandro, Ryan and Joshua. He is survived by his former wife, Ines, his brother Ernest and sisters Helen and Gloria. He was the beloved uncle of Paul MANTELLA. A private service was held on January 26th. If so desired, donations to The Mariano Elia Foundation can be sent to: 1100 Central Parkway West, Unit 1, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada M5E 4E1.

NOLAN, Sheelagh Margaret
43, Halifax. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a much loved mother, sister, daughter and friend. Fiesty to the end, Sheelagh passed away peacefully at the QE2 in Halifax on May 1, 2006, with family and Friends at her side after a courageous 4 year battle with cancer. Born in Halifax, she grew up in Saint_John's, Newfoundland., and later returned with her family to Halifax where she attended Halifax West High School. She went on to attend St. Francis Xavier University, where she fell in love with her husband, Danny GRAHAM. Sheelagh graduated from X in 1984 with a B.Sc. and went on to work as a dietitian at the VG Hospital. She loved her work and brightened the days for all of her patients. Sheelagh was active with numerous school and community events, most recently throwing herself into the Autism Golf Ball fundraiser in Halifax. She loved traveling, reading and researching her family genealogy. A natural athlete, Sheelagh enjoyed beating her brother's-in-law at tennis and ping pong, and was a proud, hockey, lacrosse and soccer Mom. She was a mediocre tarabish player but played with gusto. Most importantly, Sheelagh was a devoted and dynamic mother, and was incredibly proud of her boys. She had an indomitable spirit, a great sense of humour and loved a good laugh. She and her family have been very grateful for the deep love and support they received from their many Friends as well as neighbours (who have been like family). They are indebted to countless medical professionals who cared for her and fought with her for these challenging years. She is survived by her loving husband of 20 years, Danny GRAHAM, sons Patrick, Andrew and Colin; parents, Frank and Maureen (Casey) Nolan; sisters, Kathleen (Louis BOILEAU,) Maura (Mike SMELTZER,) Coleen (Luke ELIOT,) all of Halifax and brother Chris (Paula) of Ottawa; many adoring nephews and nieces, and sisters-in-law and brothers-in- law.

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Selvester (Douglas) ELIUK, on January 8th, 2006. Doug is survived by his sister Ernestine PHILLIPS and many nieces and nephews. Doug was born November 20th, 1935 in British Columbia and spent his early years there, graduating from University of British Columbia in 1958. He later moved to what he considered the cultural centre of Canada, Toronto, to continue his love of art and film. He enjoyed a long career with the National Film Board of Canada and was honoured to serve as Canada's Cultural Attaché to New York. Doug will be missed by numerous Friends in the art and film industries. He believed in imagination, especially in young people and spent many summers at the Canadian National Exhibition showing animation works and demonstrating the wonders of film. He was an artist of many mediums and especially enjoyed cooking gourmet meals and hosting dinners. A memorial gathering will be held on Friday, January 13th from 7-9 p.m. at 463 Bathurst Street, Toronto. Details are available at 416-603-6643. Photos of Doug or personal recollections would be welcome.
