'A terrible tragedy'
She was London police's highest-ranking female officer, respected and moving up quickly; he was a tough, compassionate cop retired after 35 years. Their deaths have stunned a city.
By Jane SIMS, Sun Media, Fri., June 8, 2007
Kelly JOHNSON broke through the glass ceiling of the London police department and had become a role model for the women on the force.
About to take over the helm of the professional standards branch as an inspector, the force's highest-ranking woman, she was viewed as a potential future chief.
She was born with policing in her blood. She was the only child of Merv JOHNSON, who retired as London's deputy chief.
She started with the police force 18 years ago, travelling up the ranks in traffic and criminal investigations.
Along the way, the 40-year-old JOHNSON earned the respect and admiration of many in the anti-violence community.
Yesterday, those who knew her as a friend, officer and anti-violence advocate reacted with shock and sadness to her violent death.
"It's sad. It's terrible," said retired superintendent Don ANDREWS, who was JOHNSON's father's partner on the break- and-enter squad years ago.
ANDREWS knew JOHNSON from her childhood and attended her wedding to London police Insp. Steve PEARSON about a decade ago.
PEARSON retired from the force last Friday. The couple was estranged. JOHNSON was set to fill the post left by PEARSON. She'd earned it.
ANDREWS, admittedly never a strong supporter of women in policing, said: "She was one of the ones I thought was a good one."
Most recently, she headed up the force's sexual assault and child abuse section, an area that includes domestic violence investigations.
She was a respected member of the London Co-ordinating Committee to End Women Abuse.
"What she brought was the understanding of a criminal justice perspective and an openness and a willingness to understand from a community perspective as well," said Barb MacQUARRIE, community director of the Centre of Violence Against Women and Children.
She seemed open to anything. She'd recently attended a forum on the sex trade, an area police have struggled to deal with, MacQUARRIE said.
"This is a terrible loss in our community. It is going to have a big impact on many people that (LUCIO and JOHNSON) worked with," she said.
Middlesex Crown attorney Geoff BEASLEY said JOHNSON will be "sorely missed" by colleagues in the justice system.
"She was highly respected for her skills as a police officer and for the professionalism and compassion she brought to the investigations she conducted," he said.
One of JOHNSON's most challenging cases in recent years was that of Edith SANDERS, an octogenarian child abuser who tortured her biological daughter and an adopted daughter and held another woman in virtual slavery for decades.
Megan WALKER, executive director of the London Abused Women's Centre, served with JOHNSON on anti-violence committees and spoke of her "valuable contribution."
Yesterday, she recalled a recent conversation the two had on a protest march downtown. It was cold that morning, and JOHNSON wasn't dressed for the chill.
Nevertheless, "we had a lovely early-morning chat in this protest march… a wonderful warm talk.
"I am just overcome with sorrow for those who will be impacted by the loss," she said.
"We talk all the time about domestic violence and getting involved," WALKER said. "Truly, we really don't know what goes on in the lives of people, do we?"
JOHNSON also faced personal tragedy. Her mother, Donna, died of cancer late in 2005. She had been seriously hurt before that, struck by a vehicle.
"She was ill in one way or another for quite some period of time, but when Donna did pass away, Kelly and Merv joined together and faced it in a strong fashion," said former London deputy police chief Elgin AUSTEN.
Her parents were proud of how quickly JOHNSON moved up the police ranks, he added.

His family, and particularly his grandchildren, were his "pride and joy".

MacINNIS, Doctor Cameron
Died peacefully on July 11, 2007, at Saint Michael's Hospital, Toronto, in his 82nd year, with Mary, his devoted sister, at his side. Born March 25, 1926 in West Bay, Nova Scotia, Cameron was the son of Alexander and Janet (CAMERON) MacINNIS. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by brothers Ian and Allister, and nephew, David MacINNIS. He is survived by beloved sisters Anna (Grey) AUSTIN, Calgary, and Mary MacINNIS, Toronto, thirteen nieces and nephews, seventeen great-nieces and nephews, and countless Friends. Cameron received his primary and secondary education in West Bay and Sydney, Nova Scotia, following which he graduated Bachelor of Science from Dalhousie University in 1946, and Bachelor of Engineering (Honours Civil Engineering) from the Technical University of Nova Scotia in 1948. After working as a research engineer for Ontario Hydro for eleven years, he was awarded a bursary by the Cement and Concrete Association (United Kingdom) for doctoral studies in concrete technology at the University of Durham (England), receiving the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 1962. Cameron was appointed professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Windsor in 1963, beginning a long and distinguished career as an outstanding teacher, researcher, and administrator. He was head of the Department of Civil Engineering from 1976 to 1979 and Dean of Engineering from 1979 to 1989, retiring as Professor Emeritus in 1991. An internationally recognized expert on concrete, Cameron's research was supported over many years by grants from the National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and resulted in numerous scientific articles. He and former student, Dr. Norbert BECKER, received the prestigious Wason Medal for Materials Research of the American Concrete Institute in 1975, for the best paper of the year in that field. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to engineering science Cameron was made a Life Member and Fellow of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineering, a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute, and a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada. However, what gave him the greatest pleasure were the accomplishments of his students. Cameron also distinguished himself in professional and community service. He was a referee for numerous scholarly journals and for National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the National Research Council of Canada, a member of various technical committees of the Canadian Standards Association and the American Concrete Institute, and Chairman of the Board of the Border Cities Branch of the Engineering Institute of Canada. He served on the University of Windsor Senate and Board of Governors, the Council of Ontario Universities, the Board of Directors of the London Goodenough Association of Canada, and the Board of Windsor's Metropolitan Hospital. Cameron manifested his strong commitment to human rights through membership in Amnesty International and as an envoy of the First Unitarian Church, Toronto, to the United Nations Non-governmental Organization. Cameron's life was enriched by his love of art, music, and theatre. He was a voracious reader and a wonderful conversationalist. He travelled extensively, with favourite destinations being Great Britain and Nova Scotia. Cameron had a delightful and of ten mischievous sense of humour. His gregarious nature was a hallmark of who he was. He was comfortable in any social situation and had a marvellous capacity to put others at ease. A man of high principles and great integrity, he was exemplary in his loyalty and devotion to family and Friends. Cameron will be remembered as a true gentleman, and is held in the greatest respect and affection by all who were so very fortunate to know him. A celebration of Cameron's life will be held on Saturday, September 15, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church, 175 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto. Immediately following there will be a reception at the Church. As an expression of sympathy and respect donations may be made in Cameron's memory to the Doctor Cameron MacInnis Scholarship in the Faculty of Engineering, University of Windsor, c/o University Advancement, 401 Sunset Avenue, Windsor, Ontario N9B 3P4.

AUSTIN, Rosamond Ann (June 18, 1948-October 5, 1997)
I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground
So it is and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind:
Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely. Crowned
With lilies and laurel they go; but I am not resigned.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
from Dirge without music by Edna St. Vincent Millay
