RAICUS, Ethel (1920-2006)
Ethel RAICUS - artist, educator, scholar, translator, cousin, friend and mentor died Tuesday, April 11, 2006. Raised by her mother, Slaava, Ethel's passion for art began at an early age, inspired by Doris McCarthy and Arthur Lismer. One of the first women graphic artists in advertising, she later became a painter in her own right. Ethel was elected to the Ontario Society of Artists in 1963. Ethel was a woman of many passions. Her idealism for a Jewish state compelled her to live and work in Israel in the early 1950s. Ethel was a scholar who became principal of the Holy Blossom Hebrew School. Later in life, she honed her skills in Yiddish, translating stories for journals and a book collection. Ethel was an opera buff and travelled with the family to Vienna and New York to hear Adrianne Pieczonka sing. She was so looking forward to the Gala opening of the Canadian Opera Company, but it was not to be. Ethel was loved and admired by cousins Raizel and Sulie SPECTOR, Elizabeth and Neil COOPER, Bill and the late Bryna PARK, and Arnold and Dina SIMONOFF; the Kates family; and by her second cousin Mavis PIECZONKA and her family. Ethel crafted a life rich in experience and relationships she will be missed by her many Friends and colleagues. Ethel will be buried from Holy Blossom Temple, 1950 Bathurst Street, on Sunday, April 16, 2006 at 10: 30 a.m. Interment at Holy Blossom Memorial Park. If desired, donations may be made to the Ethel Raicus Memorial Fund c/o the Benjamin Foundation (416-780-0324).

Dreaded homecoming for soldier's remains
Body of Thunder Bay reservist flown to Trenton
Clouds broke to shine light on grief of his loved ones
By Anna PIEKARSKI, Staff Reporter
Canadian Forces Base Trenton -- His homecoming should have been joyous, a loving son hugging his parents and girlfriend after coming back from the battlefield, but instead those he loved linked arms and cried, watching as a casket was lifted off a plane.
Anthony BONECA, the 21-year-old reservist from the Lake Superior Scottish Regiment based in Thunder Bay, died in a firefight near Pahmol, west of Kandahar City, in Afghanistan on Sunday.
His visibly grief-stricken parents Shirley and Antonio BONECA leaned on each other for support, as they stared at the flag-draped coffin of their only son. His tour of duty was scheduled to be over in three weeks.
Anthony's girlfriend Megan DECORTE fell into the arms of her parents at the sight of the coffin carrying his body.
BONECA's loved ones stood beside dignitaries yesterday at Canadian Forces Base Trenton awaiting the plane, with media present at the family's request. Rain fell all day, stopping less than an hour before the aircraft touched down at 7 p.m.
Governor General Michaëlle Jean, Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor, Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Rick Hillier and members of the military were there to join in remembering the ultimate sacrifice BONECA made for his country.
The grey Airbus broke through clouds just as the sun appeared, turning the rain-soaked tarmac into a blinding surface of light.
A bagpiper played as the body was placed in the hearse -- the sound of Megan's sobs the only other noise.
Clutching flowers, family members kissed the petals before placing them on the casket.
There has been debate surrounding BONECA's death, based on accounts he gave to those back home about his two tours of duty in Afghanistan.
His girlfriend's father Larry DECORTE told the Star on Sunday that BONECA was unhappy about conditions of his recent Kandahar posting, including one three-week-long foot patrol without adequate food or water.
"He hated it over there. He was misled as to what was going to be there when he got there, and what he would be doing. He was very mad about it," DECORTE said.
DECORTE said BONECA was not suicidal but he even went to an army priest to see if talk of suicide would get him discharged.
BONECA's father issued a statement Tuesday saying Anthony loved the army and he knew what he was getting into.
It upset his son to see the conditions in Afghanistan -- the 50°C weather, the sand and the hardships the children endured.
"Certainly Anthony wanted to come home, but I ask what soldier wouldn't in that situation?"
No matter what his state of mind, he still fought and performed the tasks of a soldier. Though he may have been desperate for a ticket home, the duties done gave BONECA a homecoming every soldier dreads.
BONECA's infantry unit motto is Inter Pericula Intrepidi, Latin for fearless in the face of danger.
"Anthony was the first to volunteer in any situation," his father said.
BONECA is Canada's 17th military casualty in Afghanistan since For a time, media were banned from covering the return of those killed in Afghanistan earlier this year, by Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government.
Public backlash from that decision -- and talk that the government was really attempting to hide the death toll of the Afghan conflict saw the Conservatives retreat, saying they would leave the decision up to individual families.
The BONECAs allowed photos on the tarmac.
But they declined to give interviews.

RICHARDSON, Theresa Madeline (née LAPETINA)
Left this world with grace on March 13, 2006, surrounded by her family, after 91 glorious years. You cannot squeeze much more out of a life than that! Born in Toronto on February 19, 1915, she was predeceased by her wonderful husband, George, in 1982 and was never able to find a completely suitable replacement. Theresa is survived by her daughter Catharine (Paul CARROLL) and son George ("Stix") both of whom were with her to the end. Tragically, she was predeceased by her other son, Jimmy, in a car accident many years ago, a loss from which she never completely recovered. She loved, and was loved by, her grandchildren, Peter CARROLL (Suzanne LORD), Michael CARROLL (Vera), Ann Marie PIEKENBROCK (Zane) and Amanda RICHARDSON, as well as by her great grandchildren Devin, Jenna and Brendan (Carroll). Her former daughter-in-law, Angela CANNON, was with her at the end, having been a great help over the years. Grand dogs Robin (San Francisco), Rowdy (Vancouver) and Cosimo (Kingston) stand on guard for her. The last five years of her life would have been unbearable if it were not for the tireless assistance, compassion and humour of her dear friend, Merlin CAMERON, and all the staff and volunteers at Seven Oaks Home for the Aged, with special thanks also to Bev and Harold PARRINGTON for the "happy hours," especially on Fridays. Theresa, and her husband, were always immersed in music, classical and opera in particular, but also pop. George Sr.'s favourite line, with no apologies to Caruso or Beurling, was "if I could sing like that I wouldn't even talk to you!" Theresa also was a wiz on the piano, playing mostly by ear. This love of music transcended their life and is carried forward by her descendants. Even the dogs like music. A Memorial Mass was celebrated on March 22, 2006 at Saint Thomas More Catholic Church followed by interment with her parents, husband and son at Mount Hope Cemetery. At Theresa's request, attendance was limited to family and close Friends as she did not want a fuss. Anyone wishing to make a donation in memory of Theresa is invited to send it to Seven Oaks Home for the Aged, 9 Neilson Road, Toronto, Ontario M1E 5E1 where a fund has been established to continue the tradition of camaraderie among the residents, in which Theresa was an active participant.

MILLEY, Rose (née BENTSEN)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rose, Grandma, Mum and wife on September 10, 2006. She is survived by her husband of 51 years Don MILLEY, and by her children and their partners: Scott and Vickie of Kincardine; Andrew and Mary of Guelph; Catherine and Ray of Ottawa and Lesley and Chris of Toronto. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Hannah and Erica MILLEY; Simon, Gordon and Grace MILLEY and Zoe, Ezra and Hazel PIERCE. Rose fought cancer for 20 years, but it did not deter her from traveling, studying, acting and enjoying her eight grandchildren. In the past few years she traveled to Norway, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Poland, Cuba and across Canada, sometimes hiking but more recently touring. Rose was a keen participant in Act II studio, taking many courses and acting and singing in plays and recitals. A lifelong supporter of the arts, she enjoyed the opera, symphony and theatre. Rose would never turn down a game of scrabble, including her last game three days before she died, which she won with a seven letter word. Rose grew up on the Queen Charlotte Islands and in Prince Rupert. She worked as a legal secretary in Vancouver before marrying and moving east as a young newlywed. She and Don spent three years in England before returning to Ontario to raise their family in Kincardine, Oakville, Deep River and Port Elgin. These were busy years filled with family and volunteering; any spare time was spent taking courses and studying, which culminated in English degree from the University of Ottawa. After two years in Atlanta, Rose and Don returned to Toronto, where Rose used her natural tenacity to re-enter the workforce after many years at home. Her work at cultural organizations, especially the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, was very important to her. The family will receive Friends for a reception gathering in the Leaside Room of the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Sunday, October 1st at 2 o'clock. If desired, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, 20 Holly Street, Suite #101, Toronto, Ontario M4S 3B1 or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.

Mystery shrouds teen's death
Family says he was in custody before being found in river, but chief says there is no record
By Isabel TEOTONIO and Tracy HUFFMAN, Staff Reporters
The last time Kamara ASHTON's family saw him, he was leaving home to go to an all-ages club with Friends. That was almost a month ago.
Over the next few weeks, the family made a flurry of phone calls to his lawyer, Friends, police and even Toronto-area jails looking for the 18-year-old. They knew something was wrong, especially when he missed a court date on a charge that he had vowed to beat.
On November 23, they learned his body had been found three days earlier in the Humber River.
There are many unanswered questions concerning ASHTON's whereabouts between November 3 and November 20 and the cause of his death questions his family desperately wants answered.
"We're not pointing fingers at no one, we just want answers," mother Lorna ASHTON told the Toronto Star yesterday, after a news conference.
Nikishua ASHTON told reporters she contacted police days after her brother's disappearance and was told he had been arrested and was in police custody. But yesterday, police Chief Bill Blair, who personally reviewed the file, said there was no information that ASHTON was ever in custody between the date of his disappearance and discovery of his body.
Nor do they have a record of the family contacting police in the early days of his disappearance.
The sister said she later called ASHTON's lawyer and was told her brother had not contacted him and had missed a November 7 court appearance on a robbery charge.
The family then tried to file a missing person report, said the sister, adding they were initially dissuaded by police who suggested ASHTON could be in hiding after missing court.
But the next day, November 16, police did meet with the family and took down their information, she said.
A week later, they were notified ASHTON had been found in the river, behind the highrise where he lived on Weston Rd., just south of Highway 401.
Ontario's deputy coroner Doctor Jim Cairns said a cause of death has yet to be determined, but there were no obvious signs of trauma to the body. Further tests will determine if ASHTON drowned and toxicology tests, which are standard procedure, will show if there were drugs or alcohol in his system.
According to Blair, the first inquiry made by the family was after they were contacted on November 16 by officers looking for ASHTON because there had been a warrant issued after he had missed his court date. After that phone call, the family went to police to report ASHTON as missing.
At the news conference, held at the Jamaican-Canadian Association, ASHTON's two sisters and a cousin were flanked by representatives of the Black Action Defence Committee, including executive director Dudley LAWS and lawyer Selwyn PIETERS, and a lawyer with the African Canadian Legal Clinic.
"We would like a full investigation into the death of this young man," said LAWS, adding he had not contacted police for information but had gone directly to the Special Investigations Unit. "It's very obvious that something went wrong."
His comments were echoed by PIETERS, who also called for a coroner's inquest into ASHTON's death.
Special Investigations Unit spokeswoman Rose Bliss said yesterday that based on information it has at this point from the family and police, there is no reason to believe ASHTON was in police custody at the time of his death.

In memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather, Americo DI PIETRO, who left us on March 13, 2005. Memories of you are still alive In our hearts, safe and never to leave Sometimes it's hard to laugh again without you there to see the smiles on our faces, talking about the little things we've done but I know someday you'll be the one we see again and joy will fill our hearts because on that day, we'll know for sure that never again we'll part. Always loved and sadly missed by your loving wife, Ersilia, son Joe, daughter-in-law Mary and granddaughter Jasmine. Mass: Tuesday March 14, 2006 at St. Andrew Church at 7 p.m - 1 Fallons Lane, London.
