Four widows die in crash
Friends who rarely missed a church event, they were heading home from a church supper before the collision.
By Jane SIMS and Kate DALEY, Special To Sun Media, Mon., November 26, Four women died as a result of a head-on crash involving a minivan and a car on Keil Drive near McNaughton Avenue in Chatham Saturday. (Sarah FRALEIGH, Chatham Daily News)
They were four pillars of a Chatham Anglican church, heading home from a church supper when tragedy struck.
Yesterday, the congregation at Holy Trinity Anglican Church was mourning the loss of four good Friends who rarely missed a church service or event.
The four women died Saturday night after their car was struck head-on in Chatham by a minivan that crossed the centre line on a small curve of Keil Drive near McNaughton Avenue.
Police yesterday hadn't identified the women, but others confirmed they are Jean RIPLEY, 86, Marion DAWSON and sisters Bernice PHILLIPS, 83, and Verna NEAVES, 82, all of Chatham.
Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash, police said.
The van's 47-year-old male driver, also of Chatham, was taken to hospital with serious, non-life threatening injuries.
Police hadn't identified him.
The four women were trapped in the car and had to be cut from the wreckage. Three died at the scene and a fourth while being taken to hospital.
All four women were widows and devoted members of the church for decades.
"They were delightful people to be around," said church Deacon Elaine WILCOX. "We just loved them.
"It's a very profound loss because they were always present. It was their continual presence that will be missed."
WILCOX said the church "really was their community. That was their life."
The church is in the midst of helping to plan four funerals. Yesterday's service was an emotional one, WILCOX said.
"It will be difficult for us to be able to come to grips with it," she said.
The women had just left an annual roast beef dinner at the church and were believed to be on their way home.
The two sisters lived in the nearby Trillium Village apartments, RIPLEY at the nearby Residence on the Thames retirement community.
RIPLEY's son is Bob RIPLEY, senior minister at London's Metropolitan United Church and a weekly Free Press religion columnist.
"She died doing something she loved and that was being with people," he said.
He said his mother was a life-long member of the church, and she and his father were married there in 1941.
She always sat in pew No. 19.
RIPLEY was a pioneer in early childhood education in Chatham and began the Fun With Friends program. She headed it for 28 years.
"You couldn't go anywhere with my mom in Chatham without someone speaking to her," her son said.
All four women were involved in the Anglican Church Women and at various times were deeply involved with "the Pie Ladies," a group that made meat pies once a month at the church for sale.
All four women often lunched together after church.
"The biggest shock of all was because people had talked to them that night," said Tom GORDON, the church treasurer.
The suggestion alcohol might have been a cause has made the shock sickening.
"That makes it even worse doesn't it?" GORDON said. "Such a waste."
If alcohol was a factor, it's a "sobering message," said Janine CARR, co-president of the Chatham chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
"It's very sad, very tragic and very sobering because it's four ladies," she said.
Only 20 minutes before the crash, she said, she was riding on a Santa Claus parade float with 15 children for Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada through the intersection where the crash occurred.
WILCOX said church members are leaning on each other and their faith to get through the tragedy.
"We'll get through this week and support each other."

PHILBRICK, Doctor Allen Kellogg
Professor of Geography Emeritus at the University of Western Ontario died on Wednesday, June 27, 2007 in his 94th year in the University Hospital, London, Ontario. Survived by the love of his life, Elaine Bjorklund PHILBRICK, and by his loving son, Allen James PHILBRICK, daughter-in-law Kathleen of Ann Arbor, Michigan; grand_son Jeffery PHILBRICK (Karen) of Bremen, Maine granddaughter Kristen EICHLER (Jeff) of Louisville, Kentucky great-grand_sons Henry EICHLER and Truman EICHLER; and his extended family, Clare GORDON, Janet GORDON, and the Fu Family in Caoxian, People's Republic of China. He is predeceased by his son James and his sister Jane KOFLER. Born in Chicago, Illinois, May 11, 1914, the son of two distinguished artists, Allen E. PHILBRICK, painter, Art Institute of Chicago, and Edith Lucretia KELLOGG, pianist. Allen's talents in both music and art brought immense joy to him and to many others throughout his life. His music-making at the piano was a signature of his personality. Sketching and painting were an integral part of his life as a geographer and a lover of the humanized landscape. Allen's career was many faceted: art teacher, Carlinville, Illinois; labour organizer and early civil rights activist, St. Louis, Mossouri; political illustrator for the St. Louis Dispatch; art director, Flint, Michigan; military service in World War 2 as Captain in the United States Army Air Force, Headquarters, 42nd Bomber Wing, anti-aircraft artillery officer; and city planner, Syracuse, New York and Ogden Dunes, Indiana. He served with distinction in the geography faculties of Syracuse University, the University of Chicago, and Michigan State University, before coming to The University of Western Ontario in 1965 to join the Department of Geography until retirement in 1979. Known for his inquisitive and creative mind, his geographical work focused on cartographic representation, global systems, geographic theory, and urban culture. Known since his retirement as 'Big Al' to many generations of the Mustang Football Team at The University of Western Ontario, he celebrated every Mustang touchdown with a lap of honour around the track. He mentored players as faculty advisor to the football team and promoted scholar athletes. Devoted to fitness, Allen remained an avid runner and walker to his nineties. His caring influence is felt by hundreds of athletes over many years. Allen played a leading role in the Ratepayers' Association of Orchard Park and Sherwood Forest. Continuing his long interest in environmental protection, he served two terms on the City of London's Ecological and Environmental Protection Advisory Committee. Throughout his life he had an abiding love for the state of Maine where he and Elaine spent their summers. There he developed a tree farm, which he captured in watercolour and sketch. His many accomplishments aside, Allen Kellogg PHILBRICK is most treasured for his loving nature by his devoted partner, Elaine, and his 'pal forever', A.J. Cremation has taken place. A public celebration of Allen's life is planned for early fall. The time and place will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: the Allen K. Philbrick Research Fund, attention Donna Swanson, Foundation Western, Room 11, Alumni Hall, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, N6A 5B9. (www.harrisfuneralhome.ca)

GORDON, Frances Marguerite Shaw (1927-2007)
Frances Marguerite Shaw GORDON, Licentiate in Piano, A.R.C.T. from The Royal Conservatory of Music, University of Toronto. Died as she had lived, peacefully and with dignity at Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary on September 16, 2007. Much beloved mother of Susan and Donald, and much beloved friend of former husband, Colin GORDON. " Mother" to furry Friends, including the late Beckster and ever-present Maggie Muffin and Corolla Kitty-cat. Fran embodied complexity and espoused privacy. As one of her dearest Friends, from our Winnipeg days, Mrs. Florence Manor once said, in order to be Friends with Frances, her soul had to touch yours. Such a level of emotional and spiritual sophistication and intuition is indeed rare. Then again, Fran's quiet spirituality truly reflected awe of a most wondrous kind. Fran possessed many gifts and taught us many things: the value of education, the importance of listening, the significance of self-respect, the necessity of "speaking up" with diplomacy, to name but a few of her qualities. Her gentle touch and vibrant smile will be with us forever. We wish to thank her many compassionate caregivers, including: Doctor Peggy Aufricht and the CVFP team; Janice Couperwhite, R.N., her visiting nurse; Janet Fex, R.N. and the Primary Care Nurse Practitioner team, and Units 31 and 46 at the Foothills Medical Centre, especially Charge Nurse Hilary, R.N., of the latter unit who was with us during those final few hours. Fran always insisted that Music was the only one of the arts associated with Heaven. Whether Fran, in her new and final heavenly home, is playing Jésu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach on the organ, delivering yet another perfect performance, or reading the Globe and Mail or Vogue with a cup of tea in one of her favourite English china cups, or positing why the Sophists were her favourite school of thinkers, we are so thankful for your presence in our lives. No funeral by her request as it was "too hard on the family." As usual, she was correct. Private burial has occurred. If desired, donations to a charity of your choice. We love you, "Mkin" and, in the words of Dad, "Take Care, Mrs. G."

Police point to diabetes as probable cause of death for Algoma Chief Executive Officer's daughter
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A20
The daughter of Algoma Steel Inc. president and Chief Executive Officer Denis TURCOTTE likely suffered diabetic complications before dying in her Ryerson University dorm room, police and family say.
When Adele TURCOTTE, 17, didn't answer her phone all day Thursday, her mother, Julie, called one of her daughter's Friends who lives in the same residence building to check on her, Toronto police Detective Robert GORDON said yesterday.
The friend found her in bed in her sixth-floor single room without vital signs about 4: 15 p.m.
A postmortem examination conducted yesterday was inconclusive, but Det. GORDON said foul play is not suspected and police are not looking for witnesses. Police have also ruled out suicide.
The first-year fashion student had diabetes since she was six years old, "and worked hard at having a normal life in spite of it," her family wrote in a death notice.
The coroner's office is now awaiting the results of a toxicology test, which "examines fluids of the body, the blood and everything to see what's in there - you know, alcohol, drugs, whatever her insulin level was at the time," Det. GORDON said.
Ms. TURCOTTE, who was born in Saint John but grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, "was the best friend a girl could have," one of her closest Friends, Stefanie BRUZAS, 18, said from Sault Ste. Marie last night.
"She's been through everything with me. A rough breakup, a fight with my Friends - she would never take sides but she would talk me through it."
Ms. BRUZAS, who is also attending school in Toronto, said Ms. TURCOTTE had designed her own clothing line, Turca, before being accepted at Ryerson and would often dress in her own designs when going out.
"She was doing everything she wanted to," Ms. BRUZAS said. "She knew how to have fun, but she always got her work done. She made great Friends after moving to Toronto, but stuck with her old ones. Her life was perfect. She was perfect."

GORLICK, Alexander
Pharmacist, noble citizen, caring husband and father, horticulturist, raconteur, bridge and tennis player, award recipient. Born August 26, 1922, in Toronto. Died April 5 of leukemia, aged 84.
By Wilfred ROVAN, Page L8
I met Alex when we were both 14 years of age. We grew up in the same area of Toronto. I was impressed with his outgoing manner. He had the gift of the gab and a good sense of humour; our Friendship clicked immediately. With other Friends from the neighbourhood, we had a group that developed a great comradeship. What is now Trinity-Bellwoods park was our playground. We formed a Jaffa Club under the auspices of Young Judea, where many world-wide problems were discussed: Alex headed the debating team.
We lost Alex for a while when he discovered the Palais Royale and Bert Niosi the band leader. He became a smooth dancer. It was interesting, because he was tone deaf, but he knew how to keep the beat.
Al graduated from Harbord Collegiate and began a pharmacy apprenticeship. He enlisted in the army in 1943, and was discharged in 1946. He enrolled in the college of pharmacy at the University of Toronto and graduated in 1948.
In 1955, he found the love of his life, Sara FORTINSKY, and they were married. He admired his father-in-law who was a melamed a teacher in the humanities, Judaism and Talmud. Al was so impressed by him that he became observant. He bought a home with a large yard and became enthralled with gardening. He put in a green house and in winter, he nurtured seeds. Motorists would often stop their cars to view Al's garden -- a thing of beauty.
Al was a true, loyal friend to his buddies. When one became confined to a wheelchair, Al would almost force him to circulate -- taking him to movies, the theatre, the symphony and anywhere his friend had to go.
Al opened a large drugstore in Toronto at Sheppard and Jane, where he would dispense fatherly advice to seniors on how to use their medications. The older patients found a professional they could talk to -- and his drugstore thrived.
Al retired in 2002 and about that time his wife, known as "Sorcy," was showing signs of Alzheimer's; in 2005 she was placed in Toronto's Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care. He was at her side at 4: 30 every afternoon and was very attentive to her and to the other patients.
Al was always involved in the community, especially in social services, and was presented with many plaques and citations. He loved his city and his country and wanted to give back his energy and time. His mission was to improve seniors' health, home and long-term care. In 2003, he received the Ontario Voluntary Service Award, and the Volunteer of the Year Award from the city of Toronto in 2003 and 2005.
In March, he called to tell me he had been diagnosed with "galloping leukemia," the type that destroys the body quickly. We had lunch the next day. His stoic comments were "I'm not afraid to die. Life has been very good to me, and I'm ready to accept my fate." Then he said, paraphrasing Ecclesiastes: "There is a time for everything under the sun, a time for birth and a time for death."
I phoned April 3, his voice was strong and he was in good spirits. That evening, he conducted a Passover seder and told his family that this one was his best. That night he was rushed to the hospital, where the "galloper" took his life away.
Alex leaves a marvellous legacy to his three children and seven grandchildren: honesty, family love, optimism, devotion to Friends and community, and a wonderful sense of humour.
It happened so fast I would have preferred the chance to say goodbye, give him a big hug and maybe drink our last chugalug together.
Wilfred ROVAN is a friend of Alexander GORLICK

Throughout their life together she created a warm and welcoming home for family and Friends, both in Canada and during winters spent in Maui and Arizona after Wilf retired. She had the knack of making Friends wherever she went and until the last few years kept in regular touch with an amazing number of people from every stage of her life. Betty was an active member of Knox Presbyterian Church in Burlington for many years and more recently attended Knox Presbyterian in Oakville. During their years in Burlington she was also active in the Burlington Arts and Letters Club, the Garden Club and the Big Sisters Association.
