He was trying to sober up. He never got the chance
By Erin ANDERSSEN, Page F8
'I'm home!" - that was how Mitchell ANDERSON liked to announce his arrival on the many late nights he staggered into the overnight shelter at the Shepherds Of Good Hope in Ottawa, looking for a place to sleep off a drinking binge. He had a regular panhandling spot outside Elgin Street where, his Friends say, his smiling compliments to passing woman helped him raise change for a bottle of sherry faster than just about anyone else. Drunk, he couldn't walk away from a fight; his face carried the scars of angry fists. But sober, he'd offer up his last cigarette if asked.
They told some of these stories this week at his funeral, held in a crowded chapel at the Shepherds, attended by staff who knew Mr. ANDERSON, his family and his Friends from the street. They spoke, in particular, to his teenaged daughter, Christine, hunched over in tears in the second row, who had just been growing close to her father again. They know who she is, because Mr. ANDERSON talked about her all the time. She was the reason he stopped wandering and returned to Ottawa. Why, at 38, he wanted to deal with his alcohol addiction and go straight.
"He was really trying to kick it," says Ryan CURRAN, a frontline worker at the shelter. "I honestly believed he was one of the guys who was going to sober up."
He never got the chance.
Close to midnight on July 13, he was struck by a red Mazda sports car while he was crossing Sussex Drive, several blocks from the shelter. He died in hospital two days later, kept on life support so his mother and brother, travelling from his hometown of Kenora, Ontario, could say good-bye.
The driver, believed to be in his late twenties or early thirties, didn't stop. Neither he nor his blonde female passenger has come forward. As of Thursday, police had narrowed their investigation to a handful of possible cars.
His Friends worry that his life is seen to matter less because he spent it on the streets and his story is too much of a cliché to draw the sympathy it deserves. Abandoned by his father, raised by a mother who tried her best with limited resources, he struggled in school, left home at 18, started drinking and couldn't stop. He travelled from city to city, carrying everything he owned in a bag. He drank cheap wine if he had the money, and rubbing alcohol if he didn't. He went to jail repeatedly, mostly for minor offences - disturbing the peace, failing to pay fines - but after sobering up behind bars, he inevitably began the cycle again when he fell back into the streets.
Lately, those streets, he told his older brother, Dave, were getting meaner and, as he was getting older, his body was less able to handle a night passed out in a park. He spoke more often lately about getting away from them for good.
But where was he to go, shelter staff wonder, to solve all his problems? They could take him in for a night or two, put him on a waiting list for treatment. But those solutions aren't enough, or they happen too slowly. As Paul SOUCIE, executive director at the Shepherds, points out in frustration, they can't send alcoholics or addicts, many of whom suffer from mental illness, into supportive housing - they're not able break the habit on their own. The city's detox unit is almost always full, and by the time there's a bed, Mr. SOUCIE says, the person waiting for it has been lost once more to the streets.
Over and over, the shelter staff see men and women like Mitchell ANDERSON, seeking a cure for their disease, and they have to tell them: "There's nowhere for you to go."
For the last three years, he stayed in Ottawa, to be near his daughter, who lives in an apartment in Vanier, a neighbourhood close to downtown, with her mother, Fatima DACOSTA. She and Mr. ANDERSON had lived together when Christine was young, then split up. But as long as he was sober, Ms. DACOSTA didn't turn him away when he showed up at the door. "He was trying," she said at the funeral, "to make amends."
He didn't need to be reminded to hide his addiction from Christine: He could be a rough, sloppy drunk, and he never wanted her to see that. Whenever he planned to visit, he went cold turkey, his Friends say, even if they had a bottle to share.
One afternoon, Mr. ANDERSON's daughter bumped into him on the street, called his name, and he was too drunk to recognize her. "He came and he was in tears," Mr. CURRAN recalls. "After that, he was sober for a couple of days, and then he would slip." He kept trying. "I can't be a true father," he'd say sadly. "I have too many problems."
Mr. ANDERSON spent his last afternoon with Christine. That night, Mr. CURRAN suspects he was making his way back to the shelter. It was his practice to show up early in the morning, though not always in good spirits. "You wouldn't want to approach him then," says Mr. CURRAN. " Most average citizens would walk away." But he'd sleep it off, and, later, they might catch up over a sandwich. They weren't so different, Mr. CURRAN observes: They each had a daughter and wanted to be the best fathers possible.
At his funeral, when Friends rose to speak, Wayne BOUCHER described how he met Mr. ANDERSON when they were both living on the streets of Toronto in 1995. In Ottawa, they often drank together.
"He was never a lost soul," Mr. BOUCHER said, standing at the foot of his friend's coffin. "He always knew the direction he wanted to go. Unfortunately, we all got our addictions."

KOROS, John, C.A.
Suddenly and peacefully, following a lengthy illness, at the end of strawberry season, on 07 July 2008, in Ottawa, Ontario, in his 78th year. Born 16 June 1931 in the village of Vyrava, Medzilaborce, Czechoslovakia (now Slovak Republic). Arrived Toronto in 1939, spent the war years in Burlington, Ontario with the ANDOGA family, his cousins. An only child, he later attended Parkdale Collegiate in Toronto, where his lifelong love of football and the Toronto Argonauts was born. Following the death of his father, a furrier, the late George KOROS, in 1952, John began working toward his C.A. with McDonald Currie and Co., and cultivated his love of golf at the Chinguacousy Country Club, eventually earning a handicap of seven. Audits of Newfoundland mining companies were among his favourite assignments from this period. He married Stella Vera ZELINSKY on 04 June 1955. After obtaining his C.A. in 1960, he worked as Chief Financial Officer for a small firm before joining the Office of the Auditor General of Canada in 1965. In 1967, Canada assumed responsibilities as the United Nation's External Auditor; under the direction of Auditor General Maxwell Henderson, John played a lead role over several years on the Canadian audit team, and he absolutely loved the work, the people, and the travel. After moving to Ottawa from Toronto in 1973, his favourite audits were of Canadian International Development Agency and IDRC, and in the late '80s he returned to New York to work with colleagues in the internal audit section of the United Nation Development Program. He retired in 1992, after 27 years of service with the Office of the Auditor General. In retirement John enjoyed the weekly outings, camaraderie, and community service related to the Riverside Kiwanis Club. Over 34 years resident in Kanata, Ontario, John and Stella were active in the Horticultural Society, the Kanata Sailing Club, the Family Enrichment Association, and were long time season ticket holders at the Kanata Theatre. John's other loves included a good joke, the sound of big band orchestras, Stella's cooking, the Leafs, and the cause of all people on the planet knowing themselves as brothers and sisters in the common experience known as 'life'. And he never, ever, ever spared any effort in doing what he thought was best for his family, tirelessly devoting his life to his widowed mother (the late Mary KOROS, died 1982,) his wife, and his sons and their families. John is survived by Stella, his sons Paul and Michael (married to Lucia) and his cherished grandchildren Marie and Nicholas. Cremation. Arrangements c/o Tubman Funeral Homes, Ottawa. A memorial service will be held in Ottawa in early August. Please contact Michael or Paul, or email jkorosmemorial@gmail.com for details and/or condolences. In lieu of flowers, please send a memorial donation to an organization of your choice.

Stabbing ends 20 years of peace for Afghan couple
Police detail fatal attack at Brampton mall
By Anthony REINHART and Timothy APPLEBY and Susan KRASHINSKY, Page A1
Brampton, Ontario -- They called him Papa around the Planet Ford dealership, although Rahim SHAHGHASY was just 53.
The nickname just seemed to fit Mr. SHAHGHASY, a car detailer with a fatherly manner whose love of friendly chatter came a close second to the fondness he held for his wife, Nazifa, and their two grown children.
Yesterday, those children, along with Friends, relatives and neighbours, struggled with a horror at odds with the peaceful life the couple had led since leaving Afghanistan for Canada two decades ago: their violent deaths outside a Brampton strip mall at the hands of a seemingly crazed man they didn't know.
"This man was armed with two knives and the attack was completely unprovoked," Inspector Norm ENGLISH of the Peel homicide squad told a packed media conference.
"The husband saw what was occurring and attempted to save his wife, but was overpowered by the male."
The 28-year-old assailant remains under police guard in hospital recovering from serious knife wounds he inflicted on himself after the noon-hour attack on Wednesday outside the Red Maple Plaza.
The incident was initially thought to be a marital dispute in which a woman was killed along with a male passerby trying to help her, but police amended their theory yesterday.
Insp. ENGLISH said Ms. SHAHGHASY had just made a dental appointment at the plaza and was walking to her car when she was accosted by the knife-wielding man, who was "very well known" to police, though a stranger to her.
Her husband, meanwhile, had made a quick trip into a small grocery store in the plaza. When he came out, he saw his wife being attacked and ran to her.
"Both victims suffered fatal stab wounds and died at the scene," Insp. ENGLISH said, adding that Mr. SHAHGHASY first made his way, bloodied, into another business in the plaza to ask a merchant to call for help.
Police arrived to find the assailant stabbing himself in the neck and used a taser to subdue him. His condition, described as critical but stable yesterday, has prevented police from questioning him and has delayed the laying of second-degree murder charges. His name will be withheld until that happens, likely in the next few days, the officer said.
The suspect, a Brampton resident, was out on bail on a charge involving violence, which Insp. ENGLISH would not disclose.
Autopsies will be conducted today and the funeral will be held as soon as possible, in keeping with Islamic custom.
The circumstances of the triple stabbing, which pushed Peel's homicide tally for the year to 11, are being examined by the province's Special Investigations Unit, which probes all police-related confrontations resulting in death or serious injury.
"The victims are wonderful people who were outstanding members of our community," Insp. ENGLISH said.
The impact on the community was evident in the parade of vehicles that converged yesterday on Siesta Court, a quiet cul-de-sac of 13-year-old homes where the SHAHGHASYs bought a tidy, brick-clad two-storey house for $415,000 in 2006.
Their home, about 10 kilometres from where they died, was often the scene of happy gatherings, but yesterday, relatives and Friends wept and embraced in the street, while news reporters and a few neighbours looked on.
"The family is in a state of shock," said Shawn JAMSI, whose wife is Ms. SHAHGHASY's sister. "My wife has been in the hospital, back and forth" from the shock, he said.
Ms. SHAHGHASY ran a clothing store in Brampton, and "I'd always see her dress up really professional with a briefcase or a purse, and I always thought, 'wow,' said neighbour Christina SASSO.
Yesterday morning, Ms. SASSO watched as the couple's 19-year-old daughter, Kubra, prepared the outside of the house for the onrush of grieving kin.
"I just saw her sweeping the driveway, the dirt; I was just watching her, just sweeping and sweeping," Ms. SASSO said. "It looked like she was in a daze, and it just brought tears."
Mr. SHAHGHASY had been slowly but steadily recovering from a workplace accident about two years ago, neighbours said. He had been using a walker to get around, but had recently moved up to a cane.
"I said, 'I'm so happy to see you like that,' and he said, 'Yes, I'm doing really good,' Gorretti ANDRADE, who lives a few doors away, recalled from an encounter three weeks ago.
The couple's positive outlook and good humour came up time and again in interviews with those who knew them.
Giovanni ZAMBITO, who lives next door, recalled them as "probably the nicest people I ever met, to tell you the truth."
Gurpreet VANDER, also a neighbour, broke into tears upon learning what had happened. She said Mr. SHAHGHASY often played with her children and would stop on the way to get his mail and chat, since they both spoke Urdu.
"No other families understand our language, and we don't understand their language," Ms. VANDER said. "So sometimes we would talk."
Mr. SHAHGHASY's penchant for talk was well known to several car dealers in the Brampton Auto Mall along Bovaird Drive, where he cleaned cars in preparation for delivery. He most recently worked at Planet Ford, while the couple's 22-year-old son, Qaiss, is a salesman at a nearby Mitsubishi dealership.
Between phone calls in the showroom yesterday, a young receptionist at Planet Ford described the elder Mr. SHAHGHASY as a wise man who, despite being unable to work recently, would drop in to share stories of his Afghan childhood or dispense fatherly advice.
"He would tell me stories about how he was raised back home, and how he met his wife, and how he loved his wife," she said.
Yesterday, his co-workers found themselves in the same state of sad confusion as the couple's relatives and neighbours.
"I couldn't believe it; it was devastating," Julee FARIAS said from behind her desk in the service department. "We did love him."

CLACK- STREEF, Brenda Corrine " Cory"
Loving daughter, wife, mother, extraordinary friend, business owner, mentor. Born September 23, 1961, in Toronto. Died November 8, 2007, in Mississauga, Ontario, of breast cancer, aged 46.
By Linda ANDREJICKA, Page L8
Cory made people smile and feel welcome. She was a natural charmer who was truly loved and respected by so many.
Born Brenda Corrine CLACK, she took full advantage of being the youngest child, benefiting from two older siblings clearing the parental path. Her Mississauga home was considered the community centre. Although it was a friendly neighbourhood, the cul-de-sac full of cars and kids, you could often hear the impatient cry of "Cory Clack, turn that music down" into the wee hours of the morning.
Cory's passion for creating nutritious family meals came at an early age with making tasty grilled-cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. She became president of Faye Clack Communications, a respected food communications company. Although her mom, Faye, was in charge, Cory worked her way up, which gave her a true appreciation of the food industry, working with clients and the difficulties of running a small business. She soon won the respect of employees, whom she led into new and exciting opportunities.
When Cory met her husband and soulmate, Albert, and had the family she always wanted, she became truly content and settled. She loved being a mom to Sadie, Fallon and Jillian; she was a natural at organizing everything family-related. Memorable get-togethers were her specialty. Her recipe was simple - a celebratory glass of wine or two, delicious food and lots of love, family and Friends. Her flank steak and Caesar salad were well-known dishes.
Cory's philanthropic nature was emerging. She initiated numerous fundraising efforts to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. Although never classified as the athletic type, she participated in the gruelling two-day, 60-kilometre Weekend to End Breast Cancer walk - not once, but twice, in 2006 and 2007. Even though, unknown to her, the cancer had returned, ravaging her back, kidney and chest bone, she finished last year's walk.
A week later, the diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer was confirmed. In her honour, Cory's family organized a memorial fund to provide financial assistance for up-and-coming chefs attending George Brown College.
The months of Cory's all-too-short remission were spent as they always were - celebrating with a girls-only weekend, an 18-friend March break vacation in Florida, a summer full of cottage and camping weekends, a romantic Mexico getaway for two, a family reunion, getting on with business, loving, laughing and dreaming of a long and healthy life.
Linda ANDREJICKA is Cory's lifelong friend.

ANDREW, Sadie (née COLEMAN)
On Saturday, May 17th, 2008, after a mercifully short and remarkably stoic battle with cancer, Sadie passed away peacefully. She was the adored wife of Archie for almost 64 years; loving mother to Don (Barbara Ann), Brian (Sylvie) and Barbara; and a irrepressible grandmother to Benjamin, Samuel, Jessica and Ross. Sister to Jim COLEMAN of Bangor, N. Ireland (deceased,) Betty McCONNELL of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and June PIDUTTI of Pignano, Italy. Sadie was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. During the war she was a sergeant in the Auxiliary Territorial Service, the women's branch of the British Army. She and Archie had a wartime romance and wedding; five days later, he was on a troop ship to Bombay. Not to be outdone, Sadie volunteered for overseas service and finished out the war in Egypt and Kenya. After the war, with Don only a year old, she joined Archie for new adventures in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). They spent 15 years in that beautiful country and Brian and Barbara were born there. With civil war looming, the intrepid pair left Africa and moved to Canada; first to Montreal and then Mississauga, where they have lived for the past 43 years. Sadie worked for many years as a secretary with the Peel Board of Education, running her school with trademark efficiency and good humour. Sadie was happiest when surrounded by family and Friends. She always liked 'something going on' and adored getting together for fun and conversation. She was an expert teller of tales and her quick wit usually left her listeners helpless with laughter. The lights shone brighter when Sadie was around. A special thanks to the exceptional staff at Beechwood Court and Beechwood Place for their extraordinary care and compassion. The concern, respect and heartfelt feelings they displayed to Sadie and her family leavened this difficult journey. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of her life will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 25, 2008 at Applewood United Church, 2067 Stanfield Road, Mississauga, Ontario. Reception follows at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of our mother, Joy, on Sunday, May 18, 2008 in her 85th year following a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer and, more recently, Alzheimer's disease. Joy was predeceased in 1992 by her loving husband of fifty years, Bob. Devoted mother to Judy (Dave) LOVE, Donna (Gary) HAUGHTON and Sharon (Chris) ANDREW. She will be lovingly remembered by grandchildren James, Kimberly, Robert (Jen), Leah (Wade), Jeffrey and Jennifer, as well as great-grandchildren Hunter and Pyper. During her life, Joy kept busy raising her family, curling at Avonlea, lunching with Friends and vacationing with Bob in Myrtle Beach. However, her greatest enjoyment came from spending every summer since 1954 with her family at the cottage on Haliburton Lake. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the staff of West Oak Village for the care they gave to Mom these last few years. Cremation and private family burial will take place. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Alzheimer Society of Canada would be appreciated. Online condolences may be made at www.oakviewfuneral.ca.

(May 15, 1926, to April 23, 2008)
John Hobart McLean ANDREWS, born in Kamloops, British Columbia, died peacefully on April 23, 2008, in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Predeceased by his parents John Ernest ANDREWS and Cynthia Maria ANDREWS (née ROBINSON;) sister-in-law Margaret STEELE (née PAYNE;) and infant son Douglas Reid ANDREWS. Survived by his wife Doris Deborah ANDREWS (née PAYNE;) son William John ANDREWS, daughter-in-law Merle ZABRACK, grandchildren Aaron and Naomi; son Donald Wilfrid Kao ANDREWS, daughter-in-law Anne Kao ANDREWS, grandchildren Brett and Alexandra; son Jeffrey Peter ANDREWS, daughter-in-law Virginia DEVONSHIRE, grandchildren Monica, Laura and Georgia; daughter Lorraine Doris ANDREWS, grand_son Graydon; brother William Robinson ANDREWS, sister-in-law Vips sister Ella Mary TAIT/TAITE/TATE, brother-in-law Howard; sister-in-law Eleanor HUMPHREY (née PAYNE,) brother-in-law Al HUMPHREY; and brother-in- law Tom STEELE. John also leaves behind numerous nephews and nieces.
John ANDREWS attended Kamloops High School. In 1947, he received a B.A. in Physics from the University of British Columbia, where he met Dorie, the love of his life. He and Dorie were married on August 28, 1948. After teacher training, they taught at various small schools in communities such as Squamish and Salmon Arm, British Columbia In 1955, they packed up little Billie and Donnie and drove to Chicago, where John received a Ph.D. in the new field of Education Administration from the University of Chicago in 1957. Choosing to return to Canada, they moved to Edmonton, where the arrival of Jeff and Lorraine completed the family. John was a Professor of Education Administration at the University of Alberta from 1958 to 1965. In 1965, the family moved to Toronto, where John was the Associate Director of the newly formed Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. In 1973, John and Dorie and family returned to their British Columbia roots. John was the Dean of the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia from 1973 to 1980, and remained a Professor there until his retirement as Dean Emeritus in 1985. John held a deep personal and professional commitment to the public education system both in Canada and around the world.
Perhaps John's most inspirational accomplishment was his total devotion to Dorie after she suffered a severe stroke in 1990. Together, Dad and Mom remade their lives, travelled the world, doted on their grandchildren and cared for each other through all that came their way.
Special thanks to John's caregiver Alicia Rhodes, who brightened Dad's final years.

Police link deaths 50 km apart
Possible murder-suicide as woman's body found in Sutton home, man's on railway tracks
By Phinjo GOMBU, Staff Reporter, March 10, 2008
A man and a woman found dead in different parts of the Greater Toronto Area are linked in a possible murder-suicide, police say.
The body of a missing 27-year-old Newmarket woman was found by York Region police in a house on the main street of Sutton, near Lake Simcoe, on Saturday.
Investigators have not officially released her name and have refused to say how she died, but people who knew and worked with her said she was Brenda HEALEY of Newmarket.
Earlier Saturday, the man now suspected of killing her, Steve DANIEL, 41, was killed by a train near Thorah, in Durham Region's Brock Township, 50 kilometres east of Sutton.
Two investigations were launched until Durham police found a car linked to HEALEY near the train tracks, and a car registered to DANIEL was found at the home in Sutton.
"The two investigations are linked," is all York Region police Inspector Mark BROWN would say, adding police are not looking for any other suspects.
DANIEL, a former resident of Sutton, once lived next door to the home of the family friend where HEALEY's body was found.
HEALEY's family refused comment when contacted by the Star.
Both DANIEL and HEALEY worked in nearby Pefferlaw for Lois and Doug ANDREWS, who operate a bus company called Have Bus Will Travel, as well a private transportation company that serves the disabled.
DANIEL worked as a dispatcher; HEALEY was a driver. DANIEL had also lived in the ANDREWS' home for the past nine years.
"We are just floored," Lois ANDREWS said yesterday at their country home near Highway 48 and Pefferlaw Rd. as they tried to come to terms with the deaths.
The couple, who last saw DANIEL on Friday, said they did not suspect anything was wrong.
DANIEL's last words on Friday -- "See you at 10 o'clock" -- to Doug ANDREWS, indicated he would return later that night.
Lois and Doug ANDREWS described DANIEL as a charming, friendly and loyal employee who went to the local Knox United Church. As far as they knew, DANIEL and HEALEY were just Friends.
Other residents of Sutton who knew DANIEL, however, said there was a dark side to the man, whose family once owned what is now Village Traditions, a small gift store on High St.
Several residents told the Star DANIEL had spent time in jail after he stabbed a woman about a decade ago.
Outside the home yesterday, homicide investigators, in a large mobile command trailer, waited for a search warrant to enter the house.
The home belongs to John LEAROYD, whose father Harold LEAROYD was a well-known town dentist for many years.
John LEAROYD, who is believed to be in his 70s, has been in a Newmarket hospital for the past month after he was injured in a fall.
It's unclear whether DANIEL had access to LEAROYD's house, but neighbours and Friends said that the two got along well, with DANIEL often helping him with errands and other tasks.

Missing woman drowned
Body found in bathtub of Sutton home on same day as murder suspect killed himself, police say
By John GODDARD, Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporters, March 12, A missing 27-year-old woman whose body was found in the bathtub of a sedate country home was drowned, an autopsy has determined.
The body of Brenda HEALEY was found Saturday in a latticed Sutton house on High St.
Police believe the Newmarket woman was murdered by a man who killed himself the same day.
On Saturday, Stephen DANIEL, 43, was struck by a train 50 kilometres east of Sutton, near Thorah, in Durham Region.
HEALEY and DANIEL were once co-workers at Have Bus Will Travel, a private transportation company serving the disabled and based in Pefferlaw, also east of Sutton, DANIEL's hometown.
HEALEY worked as a driver, DANIEL as a dispatcher.
DANIEL had lived at the home of his employers, Lois and Doug ANDREWS of Pefferlaw, for the past nine years. They never saw anything amiss, a shocked Lois ANDREWS had told the Star earlier.
But other residents said DANIEL had served time behind bars after he was convicted of stabbing a woman a decade ago.
DANIEL's car was found outside the Sutton home where HEALEY's body was found.
A car linked to HEALEY was found at the train tracks where DANIEL's body was found, police said.
Police said his death was deliberate.
"Durham police are investigating a suicide and we're investigating a homicide," said Duty Inspector John BURNESS of York Region police.
Currently, DANIEL is considered a suspect in HEALEY's murder.
"There's no other outstanding suspects," said Burness.
"However York Region homicide officers are continuing their investigation," said BURNESS.
"They want to make sure every avenue of the investigation is looked at before they come up with their conclusions."
DANIEL once lived next door to the Sutton home where HEALEY's body was found.
The owner of the home, John LEAROYD, had been recuperating in Newmarket hospital for the last month after injuring himself in a fall.
DANIEL had remained Friends with his former neighbour, a man in his 70s, acquaintances have said.
A funeral mass is to be said for HEALEY at Saint_John Chrysostom Roman Catholic Church in Newmarket at 10 a.m. Friday.
HEALEY's family was too distraught last night to talk about their loss.
"We're still grieving. Please give us our privacy," HEALEY's brother-in-law, Brian BAXTER, said from the dead woman's family home in Newmarket.
BAXTER said the family would be issuing their public message at the funeral.
Friends mourning the loss of Brenda HEALEY wrote of their loss on a Facebook page.
"She will always be remembered as a wonderful human being," wrote one friend.
"May you rest in peace, dear Brenda."
