AZIZ, Catherine Julia " Kitty"
Peacefully at London Health Sciences Centre, Victoria Hospital on Thursday, June 22, 2006. Catherine Julia "Kitty" AZIZ of London in her 90th year. Predeceased by her loving father and mother George and Freda AZIZ, her beloved sister Helen YARED, her brothers Russell and Ernest AZIZ, and her nieces Mariene KOURI and Elaine YARED. Dear aunt of Susan MASCIOTRA and her husband Alex of London and great-aunt of Gregory KOURI and his wife Jean Marie of Miami, Florida, Andrew KOURI and his wife Susan of Montreal, Québec and David MASCIOTRA and Stephanie MASCIOTRA, and many other nieces and nephews. Catherine "Kitty" was an exceptionally talented commercial artist. Renown for her life-like animal portraits, she was also commissioned in her early years to paint Roosevelt's beloved Scottie, "Falla", which is located in the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Library in Hyde Park, New York. Her special artistic works were produced similarly for Prime Minister Mackenzie King, Lord and Lady Alexander, and many others; and, of particular note, a Border Collie employed by the U.S. Army's K-9 Corps to deliver messages during the Second World War. A uniquely independent character, Kitty will be forever loved and missed by close family and Friends. Heartfelt thanks are extended to Doctor Isabel LI and the 6th Floor Palliative Care Team for their tremendous expertise and care. At Kitty's request a private family graveside service was held at Woodland Cemetery on Friday, June 23rd. (A. Millard George Funeral Home entrusted with the arrangements)

LEE Lan Sau
By Hoping LI, Page A16
Daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. Born November 16, 1917, in Tai Shan, Canton Province, China. Died March 1 in Toronto of cancer, aged 88.
LEE Lan Sau (née CHAN) was born the second eldest child of a family of three daughters and two sons.
Lan Sau married LEE Sing Yen, a businessman from Cuba, in 1935. Her mother prearranged the marriage. She became the stepmother of Ignacio, Sing Yen's son from his first marriage. A son, George, was born in 1936. Their second son was born in 1956 and was named Sunwah.
Lan Sau and Sing Yen sent George to Canada to study pharmacology at University of Toronto in the early 1960s, which was considered truly exceptional at that time in Hong Kong. Lan Sau, Sing Yen, and Sunwah emigrated to Canada in 1972 after George graduated. They settled in North Bay, Ontario, where Lan Sau and Sing Yen owned and operated a small restaurant called Coffee Cup.
In addition to working at Coffee Cup, Lan Sau worked as a dishwasher and later as a cook at Old Chicago Restaurant in North Bay from One of Lan Sau's greatest joys in life was being a grandmother. She doted on her four grandchildren Michael, Norman, Hoping, and Tin. Affectionate as she was, she never hesitated to discipline them.
In Lan Sau's later years, she lived in a senior's building in downtown Toronto where she made many new Friends, and even bumped into her childhood best friend from Tai Shan, whom she hadn't seen since the Second World War.
Her life was busy, full of parties and shopping excursions with Friends and neighbours. She gossiped for hours on the phone with her best Friends at all hours of the day. She was even known to talk on the phone at 1 o'clock in the morning!
One of her favourite pastimes was listening to the radio tuned to the local Chinese station. She enjoyed, much to Hoping and Tin's dismay whenever they visited her, hearing spooky ghost stories that were broadcast late at night.
Lan Sau was very conscious about her health. She followed the food guide strictly and encouraged her family to do the same. She had herbal remedies for every ailment that her grandchildren suffered, from asthma to chickenpox. She discouraged Hoping and Tin from eating junk food, but contradicted herself by buying them chips and cookies whenever they visited her.
She was an avid exerciser, doing tai chi every morning and taking walks in the afternoon. She spent her summers in Temagami, Ontario, where Sunwah and his family lived. She was often seen walking around town, admiring people's flower gardens and enjoying the lakefront.
As Lan Sau aged, her Friends and siblings began dying one by one. She became depressed and often asked why did she have the good fortune to live longer than they had.
Lan Sau was diagnosed with colon cancer in the summer of 2005. She had surgery to remove the tumour. The cancer came back in January of 2006, viciously attacking her kidneys and lungs. She lost her short but valiant battle with cancer, and passed away peacefully after lunch with sons Ignacio and George by her side at the Toronto East General Hospital in March.
Dying with a full stomach, the Chinese say, is a good omen.
Lan Sau was an unselfish mother and grandmother who always put her family's needs above her own. She gave the best of everything to her children and grandchildren.
My grandmother lived a simple, but extraordinary life. Her family will lovingly remember her forever.
Hoping LI is Lan Sau's granddaughter.

Mourning 4 deaths: 'the most horrible thing ever.'
10 people, including visitors from Korea, rode in minivan with just seven seats
By Michele HENRY, Staff Reporter
Cramming 10 people into a minivan equipped with only seven seats and seat belts -- was a bad idea, and the family knew it, says a relative of one of six survivors of a horrific accident Saturday that claimed the lives of four people.
But HWONG Tae said his mother, SONG Misub, who drove the van with its nine passengers, felt she had no choice. The family group, on a tour from Korea, was ending a barbecue when one of them had to leave for work.
HWONG took one of the family's two cars to drive his younger brother to a part-time job, leaving his mother with one vehicle and nine passengers.
The 46-year-old mother of two felt she couldn't leave anyone out after a last-minute decision to take the group on a tour of Caledon before the family returned to Korea the next day.
"Lots of them had to get into the van," the 21-year-old Etobicoke man said yesterday. SONG and her children have driven that route each year since they immigrated to Toronto from Korea in 2002, and it was to be a special treat for her parents.
Roughly 21 of SONG's relatives flew in from Asia on October 3 to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of her parents, SONG Inwha and his wife, 76-year-old LI Kinoon, who died in the crash.
Yesterday, an emotional HWONG recalled the tragic sequence of Saturday's events that killed his grandmother, along with his 13-year-old first cousin, SONG Chi Woo, and two maternal aunts, SONG Misuk, 41, and 43-year-old SONG Mikyung.
With SONG Misub behind the wheel, her nine relatives piled into the seven-seat Ford Windstar.
The journey turned tragic around 6: 15 p.m., when the southbound minivan passed a stop sign and headed through the intersection of Charleston Sideroad and Mississauga Rd. in Caledon, right into the path of a westbound tractor-trailer.
Truck driver Keith R. COULTER, 43, of Joachim, Ontario, was not injured.
HWONG learned of the crash a half hour later when his mother called him from her cellphone as she was being taken to hospital in an ambulance.
"She said she was bleeding, but she was talking okay," he said, noting that at first, he didn't realize the severity of what happened.
"I thought it was something small."
HWONG rushed from his home in Etobicoke to Sunnybrook Hospital. When he arrived, he realized he was wrong. "It was the most horrible thing ever," he said. "Nobody's okay."
HWONG explained that his three young cousins, who lost their mothers in the crash, remain in serious condition after being rushed to the Hospital for Sick Children Saturday evening.
To allow his mother and grandfather a proper recovery, he hasn't told them yet about the others who have died.
As the only English-speaking member of his family, the task of dealing with doctors has fallen upon HWONG.

Mother, 2 children shot dead, father arrested following chase
By Brodie FENLON and Rob LAMBERTI, Special To The Free Press, Mon., March 6, 2006
Aurora -- Two young siblings and their mother were found shot to death in their home yesterday and her recently estranged husband was arrested following a dramatic high-speed pursuit.
York homicide detectives haven't revealed the identities because kin haven't been found, but Friends and co-workers identified the victims as Wendy LAFLECHE, 41, her son Jesse, 3, and daughter Victoria, 7.
Wendy LAFLECHE's son from another relationship, Devon BRISBOURNE, 16, a student at Aurora secondary school, wasn't at home at the time of the killings. Police had been concerned for his safety yesterday morning until he was found safe.
A police source said the suspect called police about the slayings about 6: 50 a.m. and he was spotted in an Chrysler Intrepid, which he recently bought from a neighbour, at Jane Street and Highway A pursuit reaching speeds of as much as 170 km/h involving almost two dozen York and Ontario Provincial Police cruisers ensued north on Highway 400, where the suspect was allegedly seen waving a gun out the window.
Police used spike belts to flatten its tires before the car was boxed in north of Duckworth Street. It appeared the car was peppered with shotgun pellets.
The suspect wasn't injured and was arrested without incident. He was taken to York's 1 District on Prospect Street to speak with homicide detectives.
Charges were not filed against John LAFLECHE, 40, a former long-haul trucker, as of yesterday afternoon. He is known to police in connection with robbery convictions and was last arrested in 1992 for an armed heist of a Vaughan gas station while on parole.
Const. Laurie PERKS said the suspect is the father of the two young children and Wendy LAFLECHE's husband.
The forensic examination of the scene was stalled as detectives spent most of the day preparing a warrant to enter the two-storey white clapboard home with green trim.
Official information was scarce yesterday.
"As you can appreciate, it is two children and their mother&hellip It is just tragic and the officers had a difficult time with that scene," PERKS said.
It's the second incident within four days where young children were killed in York Region. On Thursday, Renu ELANGO, 2, and her three-month-old sister, Movlika, were found dead in their Markham bathtub with their mother, suffering from self-inflicted wounds. Sivananthi ELANGO, 30, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Wendy LAFLECHE was a hairdresser and assistant manager at First Choice Haircutters on Bayview Avenue in Aurora, where she worked for three years.
Amanda ALLEN, the salon's manager and a close friend of LAFLECHE, said the victim's husband had moved out of the house at 15407 Yonge St. about a month ago.
"She was a great person. She'd do anything for you," said a shaken ALLEN.
Grisly New Year
It's been a particularly gruesome new year for domestic violence in the Greater Toronto Area:
- March 2: The lifeless bodies of three-month-old Movlika ELANGO and her two-year-old sister, Renu, were found in a tub with their mother -- who was also critically injured with self-inflicted wounds -- at a house in Markham. The mother, Sivananthi ELANGO, 30, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
- February 9: The partially decapitated bodies of Shao-Sang LIANG, 38, her daughter, Vivian Yuen-Yee CHAU, 3, and her son, Ian CHAU, five months, were found in the basement of their bungalow near Victoria Park and Finch avenues. LIANG's common-law husband, Huc Minh CHAU, 40, faces three counts of first-degree murder
- February 9: A 31-year-old woman was stabbed twice at a plaza by the GO station in Ajax. Police credit bystanders with saving the woman's life. Her estranged spouse, 37, was arrested and charged with attempted murder. Police would not release his name in order to protect the victim's identity.
- January 26: Rose BOROJA, 54, of Markham, was found strangled in her daughter's Toronto home, where she was babysitting her two-year-old grand_son. Her husband, Pero BOROJA, 70, is charged with second-degree murder.

Mom charged in kids' deaths
First-degree murder count laid after girls found in bathtub
Tamil community leader calls for more counselling programs
By Curtis RUSH and Nicholas KEUNG, Staff Reporters with files from Bob MITCHELL and the Star Library, Page A2
A 30-year-old Markham woman whose two young daughters were found dead in the family bathtub Thursday night has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Sivananthi ELANGO remains in serious condition in Markham-Stouffville Hospital with self-inflicted slash wounds to her wrists and throat, York Regional police said yesterday.
Without giving specifics, Insp. Tony CUSIMANO said police have found evidence to support the first-degree charge, which implies an act committed with planning and deliberation.
Renu ELANGO, 2, and Movlika ELANGO, 3 months, died Thursday while their father was out on an errand. Their grandparents, who lived with the family, had come home, looked for the girls and heard only silence from the locked en suite bathroom, police sources said.
They summoned a basement tenant for help breaking in and discovered a horrific scene -- the mother bloodied, the children thought to be drowned. The tenant called 911.
CUSIMANO confirmed that paint thinner had been found in the room, but wouldn't comment on its significance.
He said it was too early to speculate on why the tragedy occurred, or whether the woman suffered from depression or post-partum psychosis. The latter, a serious mental health disorder that can appear after childbirth, has been linked to similar murder-suicide attempts.
Police say the family arrived from Sri Lanka around 1990. Neighbours said they had moved into the two-storey Sophia Rd. home, in the McCowan Rd. and 14th Ave. area, around Christmas.
The incident came less than a month after a Toronto man, Huc Minh CHAU, 40, was charged in the slaying of his wife, Shao-Feng LIANG, 38, and their two children. His sister has said she had tried to get CHAU committed to a psychiatric facility.
Since 1990, at least 22 children in Toronto alone have been killed by their mothers, with clinical depression implicated in many cases. Mental health professionals and community workers say the social isolation and lack of support felt by immigrant women may aggravate depression and economic stress that can lead mothers of any background to take such a terrible step.
"In any culture, there's always the social stigmatization associated with mental illness. But in some communities, people don't even have the language and translation (to speak about) mental illnesses," said Martha OCAMPO, of Across Boundaries, a Toronto ethno-racial mental health centre. "It is particularly difficult for the mothers, who are afraid that their kids would be taken away from them. The social expectation that a woman is the caretaker of the household just doesn't help."
David POOPALAPILLAI of the Canadian Tamil Congress said the community has been shocked by the tragedy, which follows an incident in July 2001 in which Jasotha MAHENDRIRAN was charged in the murders of her daughter Shyami, 5, and son Sajeev, 3.
"Even though our community is now more established than when we first came here 20-odd years ago, mental illness and things like post-partum depression are still very new to the community," POOPALAPILLAI said.
"We do need more counselling services. Some people still face the language barrier and have trouble accessing the mainstream services. Right now, we still don't have an expert in this health area in the (Tamil) community."

SPERDAKOS, Angeline (a.k.a. Coula LUCAS)
Passed away peacefully on February 10, 2006. Born in Montreal on March 6, 1920, Coula was the beloved sister of Helen (Eleni) LIASKOS, Mariya CHRISTIDIS and the late Dean and George SPERDAKOS. She will be forever cherished by her adoring nieces Anastasia (Tassie) CAMERON and Diane GOUZOPOULOS, Paula and Sophia SPERDAKOS, Aurora, Ophelia, Thalia CHRISTIDIS and nephew Alexander CHRISIDIS. Coula was loved by her great-nieces and great-nephews who enjoyed her unique spirit and interest in them. She is also survived by her son George TRAKAS and granddaughter Maggie TRAKAS and nieces and nephew. Coula was a wonderful woman, who brought love and joy to anyone lucky enough to spend time with her. Her sister, Eleni, knew that better than anyone, and enjoyed a special relationship with her. Their bonds were not inspired by blood alone. They loved each other's company and were simply the best of Friends. They were devoted to each other always. People were easily touched by Coula's nurturing warmth, impeccable taste and fine beauty. Her cooking was delicious enough to feed the gods and she graciously and generously shared it with many. Her nature was to heal and love people whom she met. She was an attentive listener who offered guidance without judgment, commiserating with sorrows, diffusing anger and softening the blows of disappointments. Time spent with beautiful Coula inevitably left one bolstered with confidence to move forward. Students at McGill University still remember her kind and caring ways 30 years after she was a student advisor there. Those of us who loved her are blessed with incredible memories of time spent in her company. Coula, you will be remembered, missed and forever in our hearts.
