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.

GAILITS- KURCBAUMS, Zelma

GAILITS- KURCBAUMS, Zelma
By Edwin GAILITS, Page A22
Wife, mother, translator, traveller. Born July 25, 1921, in Khabarovsk, Russia. Died July 14 in Toronto, of cancer, aged 84.
There was always adventure in her blood and curiosity in her mind. From wartime travels through Europe, to later journeys to the Great Wall of China, the game reserves of Kenya or the Mayan ruins of Mexico, Zelma lived and travelled with great passion. She was born to Latvian parents in the remote Russian town of Khabarovsk near the Chinese-Manchurian border. She lost her father before birth, was orphaned at age 2, and was adopted into the welcoming Zommers home in northeastern Latvia.
During the Second World War, when Germany occupied Latvia and the Soviet Red Army was moving to occupy Latvia, she escaped the local war turmoil by travelling to Germany to work for an aircraft manufacturing company. That she saw her circumstances as akin to an adventure always struck me as amazing. As the British bombers were devastating Germany, she would lie awake at night, and wonder if the night might bring excitement in the form of another air raid shelter retreat.
If God was a guiding force in her life, humour was her constant companion and one that allowed her to feel welcome in almost any situation. She put others at ease through a joke or funny story. Jautrite (her Latvian nickname meaning "happy one") had such an infectious spirit, she could disarm the most humourless curmudgeon.
My mother had a group of close Latvian female Friends: Biruta, Elsa, Velta and Anitra, whom she joined for a night out several times a year. Their generation of Latvian husbands, while being good for many things, were not comfortable taking their wives to the theatre or the opera. I expect they had other areas of meaningful connection but, like all of us, had their limitations. These ladies, however, were not prepared to sit home and live with these limitations and the outings came to be known as the ladies' night out. I expect the men were relieved, if occasionally anxious, to see their wives on the loose in downtown Toronto in the 1960s and 1970s. The ladies couldn't have been happier they had time to get together and talk, see some interesting shows, and on occasion receive looks or passing comments from men who took their sex-appeal seriously.
Zelma maintained a deep, abiding love of God throughout her life and was a profound teacher on many levels. Her peaceful embrace of the end, due to metastatic brain cancer that approached quickly, was very instructive.
What philosophers since Plato have meant when they said "to study philosophy is to prepare to die" was not lost on my mother. With God and her family at her side and a lifetime of philosophic understanding, she was prepared. Like Socrates on his last day, calming and reassuring his Friends that death was not to be feared but rather seen as a positive journey, my mother reassured those who came to her bedside in her final days.
On the day that turned out to be her last, the pastor spoke to her in Latvian and said a blessing and a few other words about her sons. My brother and I thanked her for all she had done for us. We told her she could not do anything more for us and that she need not have any other cares. Agnes, her caregiver, recited a few Psalms.
Although she had survived days beyond the last time she was capable of swallowing food, it seems it was this final act of having received God's blessing and her sons' release from her mother's role that made the difference. Within an hour she passed away.
If the mark of a good guest is knowing when to leave, the mark of a well-lived life is knowing how to leave. My mother demonstrated a well-lived life.
Edwin is Zelma's son.
