Horsewoman killed by train
Shirley STOREY waited for one train, but was hit by a second leaving the Western Fair.
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Sun., September 16, 2007
A woman involved in a Western Fair competition was struck by a train and killed just outside the fair grounds yesterday, the second straight year that tragedy has marred the exhibition.
Shirley STOREY, 62, of Clinton, was waiting at a level crossing at Rectory Street with four others -- including her husband, Jim -- as a westbound train trundled past.
With the warning lights still flashing, the group began to cross when the other four noticed a freight train heading east. But Shirley STOREY, described by Friends as a "super lady," didn't see it coming.
"I was in the (Agriplex) when I heard the train brakes," said Ted LANSBERGEN, who, like STOREY, was at the fair for a equestrian competition organized by the Mid-Western Ontario Horseman's Society.
"It was terrible," LANSBERGEN said. "She's a hard-working lady. A good couple, good hard-working family."
The 7 a.m. incident blocked the tracks for about three hours, forcing local Via passengers to board buses yesterday morning.
Those involved in the horse riding competition park their trailers in a gravel lot on Rectory Street, immediately south of the train tracks running south of York Street. They walk across the tracks to the nearby Agriplex.
Making the tragedy all the more stunning is the fact Jim STOREY was there when his wife was struck by C.N. train 398, which was Toronto-bound.
He had to be pulled from the scene by Friends within the close-knit equestrian community, one witness said.
"(Shirley and Jim) were attached at the hip," said Lynn EATON, a friend and director with the horsemen's society. "They were always, always together.
"He went to a (recent) competition in Strathroy (alone) and he went home because he couldn't be without her. He missed her."
This weekend's event did go on as scheduled despite the tragedy, EATON said.
"Shirley had a plaque she always carried with her… That's what we read when we had a moment of silence for her," EATON said. "Shirley would have wanted it to go on.
"I was just joking with her (Friday) night. It's just a shock."
A tearful LANSBERGEN said the STOREY clan had been competing at Western Fair for close to a decade.
Though everyone knows to be careful on the tracks, he expressed surprise that trains travel so fast through the city.
The lights were activated and warning arms down at the time of the tragedy, London police Sgt. Greg BLUMSON said.
Though it isn't common for two trains to cross paths at the same time at a level crossing, a C.N. spokesperson said it does happen and pedestrians should be aware of that.
"If you have two tracks there, always expect a second train," Frank Binder said yesterday. "It's a tragedy for the family, it's tough for our crews (but) if the lights and bells are activated, always expect a train.
"And whatever number of tracks are there, that's how many trains there could be."
Another tragedy cast a pall over the Western Fair last year, when Londoner Janet RUDD, 32, choked and collapsed while playing a fair-run game in which she stuffed marshmallows in her mouth and tried to say the words "chubby bunny." She died in hospital.
"It's a sad note for all of us, especially those of us who knew Mrs. STOREY," fair manager Dave TAILOR/TAYLOR said of yesterday's death. "We certainly feel for the family."

RUDNEY, Harry
Husband, father, scientist. Born April 14, 1918, in Toronto. Died May 30 of cancer in Cincinnati, Ohio, aged 89.
By Sue ANDREW, Page L6
My uncle Harry was born into a family of struggling Jewish immigrants. Neither of his parents could read or write English. With four sisters crammed into what few sections of the house weren't rented out, Harry was relegated to sleeping on a cot in the dining room.
Despite his obvious academic potential, he attended the Central Technical School in Toronto to learn a skill and begin work as soon as possible.
After graduating, Harry took a contract job as a lab technician with the Toronto school board, setting up experiments at night for classes the next day. He developed a keen interest in biological science and frequently attended public lectures given by University of Toronto professors, including one by Bruno MENDEL, a German Jewish refugee and cancer researcher from the Banting Institute. After the lecture, Harry wrote a letter to Doctor MENDEL suggesting an experiment.
Dr. MENDEL was so impressed that he invited Harry to tour the lab and introduced him to Sir Frederick Banting, who must have recognized his potential as well because he persuaded the school board to let Harry break his contract to work at the institute.
Dr. MENDEL took Harry under his wing and mentored him in every way, even paying for his tuition at University of Toronto from his own pocket. Harry graduated with a degree in biochemistry and physiology in 1947. He applied three or four times to the University of Toronto medical school, only to be rejected repeatedly because of quotas for Jewish students in place at the time.
Unfazed and never bitter, he moved to Cleveland, received his PhD in 1952 at Western Reserve University and eventually worked his way up to chair of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
While attending university in Toronto, Harry began a courtship with his little sister Pearl's close friend Bernice SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER, whom he suddenly noticed wasn't so little any more. They remained loving soulmates for more than 60 years of marriage. They had two sons and, with intelligence and warmth, worked to meet the challenge of nurturing the unique qualities in each of them.
Harry further distinguished himself in the field of cholesterol biosynthesis and it was his fundamental research that was the basis for the cholesterol-lowering drugs commonly known as statins that are taken by millions of people everyday.
I asked him once if he ever felt resentful of the fortunes made from his research, and he said it never even occurred to him to exert proprietary rights over his work. His motives were pure and simple. He only wanted to contribute. He said once that he was determined to live long enough to see the results of the Human Genome Project. He never feared the future. He embraced it.
Sue ANDREW is Harry's niece.
