Driver in fatal crash may have medical condition, police say
By Jamie KOMARNICKI, Page A9
Joan Patricia GRYS had just finished the mundane chore of banking and was blocks from home when the light turned green.
Moments earlier, a black BMW had hit another vehicle about six blocks east of Coxwell Avenue near Woodmount Avenue and fled the scene, according to police.
The BMW came barrelling west down Danforth Avenue, steering around traffic stopped at the adjacent red light, police said.
Ms. GRYS, 51, had just stepped into the intersection at Danforth and Coxwell when the BMW careened into a van, struck her, then crashed into a truck before coming to a halt.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The police reconstruction team has collected data and is putting together a report, said Sergeant Tim BURROWS of the police traffic services unit.
Detectives are still collecting and assessing witness statements, he said.
But the answers to many of their questions lie with the 60-year-old driver of the BMW, who was taken to hospital with minor injuries and remains under medical supervision.
Specifically, officials are examining the possibility that the driver may have a medical condition that affected his driving, Sgt. BURROWS said. Ambulance personnel at the scene first raised the possibility, he said.
"We're trying to figure that out - if there was a medical condition, did it happen before the collision, or was it a result of the collision," he said.
The man is expected to remain in the hospital for several days, he said.
Ms. GRYS lived near the site of the collision, Sgt. BURROWS said. Her husband, Bill, is devastated by the loss of his "beloved wife," the officer said.

BURT, Andrew
In loving memory of Andrew BURT who passed away June 26th, 2005. The moment that you died Our hearts were torn in two, One side filled with heartache, The other died with you, We often lie awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks, Remembering you is easy, We do it everyday, But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away, We hold you tightly within our hearts, And there you will remain. Love forever, Mom, Dad, Naomi, Leanne, Dave, Madigan, family and Friends.

BURTCH o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2008-02-19 published
BURTCH, Rev. Hugh C.
It is with regret and sadness that we must report the death of our father, the Rev. Hugh C. BURTCH, former Minister of Grace and Fairmont United Churches in London, at the age of 86 years at Stratford General Hospital, on Friday, February 15, 2008. Dad died of Kidney Disease as a result of a 20 year battle with Diabetes. Our Father was born and raised in the east end of Hamilton, on Tregina Ave. and also lived on Mary Street as a teenager. He attended Ballard Public School and The Eastern High School of Commerce, wherein he excelled in Sports, Hockey, Baseball and Pole Vaulting. He was an All-Ontario Pole Vaulter for 1934, 1935 and 1936, one of his Coaches being the legendary Cyl Apps. Dad was ordained into the Ministry of the United Church in 1958, though he had been a Student Minister from 1951 in Sarnia, Ontario at St. Luke's United when it was on Parkview. His last Pastoral Charge, (or so he thought) was in Hamilton, east end only a few blocks from where he was born and raised, the twinned Charge of St. David's United and Fairfield on Barton Street. He retired or so he thought in 1986 from the active ministry which he loved so much. Once in Stratford, Ontario, the birthplace of our Mother Mary Helen DAVIDSON, who pre-deceased Dad in the year 2000, Dad very quickly discovered that "retirement" was a relative term, for he found himself becoming "interim" minister of Centennial United, also filled in at Ontario Street Baptist Church, and to some amusement on his part, also in the Presbyterian Church in Shakespeare, but he very quickly became enamoured of the people there, and they treated him very well, very well indeed. Dad died quietly and with dignity, which mirrored his life. He did not like any fuss made over his life or profession. Dad just called it "doing the job to which he was called." The funeral will be held at Central United Church, on Saturday, February, 23rd. Donations to the Kidney Foundation would be appreciated. W.G. Young Funeral Home, Stratford.

BURTCH, Linda
Historian, archivist, cartographer, bookmaker, intrepid traveller, enthusiastic gourmet, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, friend. Born April 4, 1953, in Morden, Manitoba Died April 9 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, of melanoma, aged 55.
By Anne MacGREGOR, Page L6
Linda possessed great joie de vivre. She was passionate about everything she was involved in, but her main passion was for her family: her husband Michael, daughters Sarah and Michelle and grand_sons Julien, Aidan, Myles, Michael, Stephen and Spencer.
Each stitch that went into the wedding dresses Linda made for her daughters had love in it. Every summer, in spite of her gruelling chemotherapy treatments, Linda and Michael cared for their grand_sons for fun-filled weeks of activity.
Spending time with Linda was always fun. She loved good food and wine and had so many interesting things to talk about, including enthusiastic accounts of recent adventures.
As a historian she loved travelling and visiting art galleries and heritage buildings. A talented photographer, Linda had a darkroom in her home where she developed her own photographs. She was an avid gardener, an excellent cook and talented seamstress, and whatever she produced was perfect. She never spent her time idly - she always had several projects on the go.
When Linda enrolled at Brandon University in Manitoba, her orientation leader was Michael BURTCH. It was love at first sight. One year after they met, Michael and Linda married and moved to Kingston, Ontario, where Michael completed a degree in art history. During this period Sarah and Michelle were born.
In 1981, Michael was appointed director and curator of the Art Gallery of Algoma in Sault Ste. Marie. The family immediately embraced the northern lifestyle and relished their participation in outdoor activities.
Linda and Michael quickly became assimilated into the city's thriving arts community, and Linda completed a bachelor's degree in history. Upon graduating, she was hired in the reference department of the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library, where she was employed for 20 years.
In the early 1990s, she obtained her archive technician diploma. The library's archival collection grew tremendously during her tenure, and now measures 1,100 linear feet. Linda obtained collections of historic papers from all the businesses that formed Sault Ste. Marie's industrial heritage. The city lost a valuable asset in her knowledge and experience.
Linda and Michael loved to travel, but as her illness progressed they both sensed time was getting short. They embarked on an intensive itinerary. Within one year they explored Havana, Nova Scotia, Yellowknife, China, New York, Rome and Venice. Shortly after their trip to Italy Linda died peacefully at home, surrounded by those she loved most.
Anne MacGREGOR is Linda's friend.
