Youth Killed in Ski Mishap
Grey County O.P.P. is continuing to investigate an apparent Alpine skiing mishap this morning (05-Feb-06) that has claimed the life of a Toronto youth.
The incident occurred just before 10 a.m. at the Beaver Valley Ski Club, which is situated east of Markdale and just north of the hamlet of Kimberley. It was sunny and clear at the time of the mishap, snow conditions were good and the involved run, known as "Long John" had been freshly groomed. There were few skiers on the runs at that time.
The crash was heard by another skier further downhill and he returned to find the young man down and unresponsive. Ski patrollers assisted and the injured skier was transported by ambulance to Grey Bruce Health Services - Markdale where he was pronounced dead. The run was closed immediately after the occurrence and an Ontario Provincial Police collision re-construction was summoned to the scene to assist in the investigation.
The deceased youth has been identified as Joshua MAZZA, 14 years, of Etobicoke. A post mortem investigation is scheduled to take place on Monday, March 6 to assist in determining the cause of death.
Investigators are concerned that someone may have witnessed the incident when it occurred but may not have been aware of the gravity of the situation at that time. Anyone with information that might assist in this matter is asked to contact Grey County O.P.P. at 1-888-310-1122. Constable Ken SAINT_JOHN of the Markdale Detachment is the investigating member.

MAZZA, Joshua -- Dispatch:
By Jeffrey HAWKINS, Page M6
His time on earth may have been short, but Joshua MAZZA managed to touch the hearts of many. Although his family mourns him as a loved one, friend John BLUM believes "we likely lost a future leader, as well."
A gifted athlete and student and a loving son, Joshua seemed to excel in everything he did -- even when the odds were against him.
One of only two Grade 9 students at Michael Power High School to be chosen for the football team, Joshua dislocated a shoulder during his first practice but continued to attend every practice just to cheer on his teammates.
"He loved everyone, and everyone seemed to love him," said Michael MAZZA, Joshua's godfather and uncle. He had a passion for history: Book after book, he submerged himself in the footsteps of mankind. It was a subject his parents, Chris MAZZA and Lori MAZZA- WEBB, and his stepparents, Kathy MAZZA and David WEBB, thought he might one day pursue as his profession. Joshua also took an interest in acting, artistry and cooking -- especially Thai food.
"If I had to sum him up," said Mr. BLUM, " I'd call Joshua a true Renaissance man."
Joshua died on March 5, 2006, after suffering a severe fall while skiing. He was 14.

DOAN, Dorothy
By Michael A. MAZZA, Page A30
Nurse, sister, aunt, traveller, friend. Born July 18, 1915, Komoka, Ontario Died June 10, in Strathroy, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 91.
At 16, while still attending high school, Dorothy DOAN answered an ad in the London Free Press and interviewed to become a nurse in training. Through her dedication, Dorothy became a pioneer a female leader in an era when female leadership was not always appreciated, a role model for younger women and one of the most beloved members of the community.
Dorothy was born on a farm; the daughter of Alex and Isabelle DOAN, she was the second youngest of nine children. With love and gratitude, she recalls how her oldest sister came home to care for her and her siblings after their mother died when Dorothy was only 8.
Dorothy graduated as a registered nurse from Strathroy General Hospital in 1935. When war was declared in 1939, Dorothy enlisted and reported for duty in 1942, receiving several weeks training in England, before travelling to Cape Town, South Africa. The journey to Cape Town was a dangerous one; their vessel travelled in a convoy of ships moving only at night and negotiating their way through enemy-infested waters. She grimly remembers counting the surrounding ships at first light each day, missing those that had been destroyed by enemy submarines, and thanking God that their own ship had not been hit during the night.
Later in the war, Dorothy was transferred to Cairo where she worked in an operating room for 13 months. Gruelling work, but also opportunities to visit market bazaars, tour the pyramids and even try a camel ride.
"There was a job to do, and so we did it," was how Dorothy matter-of-factly recalled the dangers of nursing during the Second World War. It was this same approach Dorothy applied to her professional career.
After the war, she was hired as assistant superintendent at Strathroy. In the next few years, she completed a Nursing Service Administration degree at the University of Toronto and in 1956 became superintendent of Strathroy Hospital, continuing her education through correspondence.
Three years later, Dorothy completed her certification in hospital organizational management. She received membership in the American College of Hospital Administrators in 1963 -- at the time there was no comparable Canadian association -- and in 1969 she attained her fellowship with American College of Hospital Administrators, becoming one of the first women in Canada to do so.
In a time when women in positions of power were few, Dorothy was a leader in a health-care world dominated by men. She was a persuasive leader with a task-oriented perseverance. She built a hospital and 10 years later, doubled it in size, all the time overseeing the funding, construction and design -- areas that were all male-dominated. In a time before books on "managing change," Dorothy guided Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital through many changes in her 25 years there.
After retirement in 1981, Dorothy devoted herself to volunteering with the hospital, the United Church, the Salvation Army, the Canadian Cancer Society and in the Community Living kitchen.
Family was also important to Dorothy. She was Aunt Dot to her many nieces and nephews and her cottage on Lake Huron near Forest, Ontario, was a popular place for family to visit with her, recalls Yvonne LAMBERT, one of her nieces.
Among many honours, Dorothy DOAN was a lifetime member of the Registered Nurses of Ontario, and a Fellow in the American College of Hospital Administrators. In 1992, she was awarded the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada Medal.
Michael is a friend of Dorothy; he wrote this with Sarah Louise Davidson's help.

Teen skier's death a mystery
By Hilda HOY, Staff Reporter
One week ago, 14-year-old Joshua MAZZA was whizzing down the hills at Blue Mountain, propelling his school's alpine ski team to a fifth-place giant slalom finish at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations championships.
Yesterday morning, the Etobicoke teen was found crumpled in the snow on a downhill run at a ski club near Collingwood. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital a short time later.
"They don't know what happened," his mother Lori MAZZA said tearfully from their home yesterday afternoon. "He was (skiing) with his Friends and he went over the crest of the hill, and when they saw him again, he was just lying in the snow."
An X-ray showed that Joshua hadn't suffered a broken neck, she said. The family hopes an autopsy scheduled for today will shed some light on what happened.
"He wasn't a risk-taker. He was very in control and he was a very good skier."
The weather yesterday was clear and sunny and the snow on the "Long John" run freshly groomed.
Joshua loved to ski so much, he'd headed for the hills almost every weekend for the past several months, his mother said. He often skied at the Beaver Valley Ski Club, where he died yesterday, because his father owned a home nearby.
Last Tuesday, MAZZA took the day off work to watch him race in the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations championships at Blue Mountain. "Little did I know…," she said, before choking up and becoming unable to finish.
Joshua was, in every way, "an awesome kid," she said, a well-loved student at Etobicoke's Michael Power/St. Joseph High School. He loved sports but also excelled in academics, finishing his last year of school as class valedictorian.
"Every adult I know tells me what a wonderful kid he is. Everybody loved him. He was the best, and I'm not just saying that because I'm his mother. He really was."
The ski run was closed immediately after the accident and the Ontario Provincial Police called in a reconstruction expert to examine the scene.
The family is planning a funeral for Joshua later this week.

MAZZOTTA, Lucia
One year ago today our dear mother and wife, Lucia, left us to be with the Lord, lovingly surrounded by her family. It broke our hearts to lose you mom, but know that your unconditional love and wonderful memories continue to keep our family strong. You are our 'Angel' from above. "Mamma cara Eng amorosa, riposa in pace". Forever loved and missed, your family. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, November 25th at Saint Mary's Catholic Church at 9: 00 a.m.
