SMITH, Richard E. " Rick"

Never one to sit still, other hobbies included skiing, hockey and canoeing. Whether Rick was travelling in the elite world of showjumping or out in the back 40, he was renowned for his quick wit and sense of timing. Rick's genuine interest in people and incredible loyalty to his Friends and family endeared him to all. These special traits are reflected in his son and sidekick Jedd. The loss of Rick will leave a huge void in everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. He was larger than life. Beloved husband of Cathy INCH. Loving father of Natalie Rebecca SMITH (Jeff LAWRENCE) and Jedd Robert William SMITH. Cherished son of Beryl (Hill) SMITH and the late Earl SMITH predeceased 1985.

F/L Royal Canadian Air Force 421 Squadron O/S
On January 19th, 2008 The Great Circle closed. Once again, he sits on the Hill in Western Bay, Newfoundland. where it all began in 1911. Surrounded by nature's wonders, rugged beauty, and history, he looks out to sea, now knowing Life's Mystery. With an excellent mind framed by outstanding memory, he saw through 'fog' to find essence. He married UofT Meds '39 classmate Barbara WATTS (1996) and together they raised four children: Vicki (2002), Donna, Ron, and Bob. As they grew, as Friends came, and as the family expanded to include spouses and grandchildren, he instilled meaning through discovery, honouring learning. He encouraged everyone to make the most of their lives to the best of their individual abilities. In art, gardening (especially roses), writing, music, and all he did, he pursued knowledge and expression. Patients, contemporaries, and Friends respected him. His strong spirit carried him through a torpedoing on D-Day and the horrors of war. He was appalled by but recognized the roots of mankind's inhumanity. He cherished Nature and was abhorred by its destruction. Humble beginnings with seven siblings and deep family bonds taught him to focus on what mattered; he lived unfettered by our materialistic culture, and he knew how to improvise and be independent. People and living were understood through basic principles. In his last chapter, he felt fortunate to have shared a special companionship with Margaret YOUNG. He was very proud of everyone in his extended family and all of their accomplishments. When skies were darkest, he would say to watch for the breaking sunshine. So, with what he stood for, he touches all he knew. Cremation has taken place. A future family gathering will celebrate his life.

Robbery possible motive in florist's death
Neighbourhood shaken after body of mother of three discovered bound and gagged in North York store
By James BRADSHAW, Page A17
A tight-knit North York neighbourhood is reeling after a local florist and mother of three died Thursday night during what police are calling an apparent robbery in which she was bound to a chair, gagged and left helpless in the washroom at the back of her store.
Felicia HOSANY's husband, Rafick, found her shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday in Flowers By Felicia on Wilson Heights Boulevard at Sheppard Avenue. Mr. HOSANY called police, who later confirmed that money was missing from the store, suggesting robbery as the motive. An autopsy revealed Ms. HOSANY died of suffocation with ligature restraints.
In a poignant tribute, several people stopped yesterday to place flowers in front of the store. Friends and customers described Ms. HOSANY, 51, as a kind and generous person who was more concerned with her neighbourhood relationships than running a prosperous flower shop.
One area resident, who asked to be identified as only Dave, said he and his wife bought their wedding invitations from Ms. HOSANY 11 years ago, and his mother is a friend who buys weekly flower arrangements to leave at her late husband's grave.
"She wasn't about business," he said. "She charged my mum $3, and my mum would give her a $2 tip and she wouldn't take the tip. She just wanted to know how the family was doing, how my mum was doing; she was just there for company. Business was secondary to the neighbourhood."
Susan SHMUEL, who owns a pet daycare and grooming centre a few doors away, said Ms. HOSANY came to her store on Thursday to buy a collar for her dog, a pit bull that was in the store with Ms. HOSANY the night of the robbery.
"It's just awful, she would come in to just say hi," Ms. SHMUEL said. "Everybody knew her to be a friendly, nice person. She was always smiling, she was always happy."
Kim PERRY has been working at the nearby Times Square Diner for eight years, where Ms. HOSANY often stopped in for meals. Ms. PERRY said they were on a first-name basis and that she was devastated by the news of her death, having just heard that Ms. HOSANY was expecting to become a grandmother any day.
Most residents and business owners describe the area as safe and quiet, a sentiment that added to their horror upon hearing the disturbing details of Ms. HOSANY's death.
"We haven't had any issues, any problems -- it's so quiet," said Josie MARQUES, a customer of Ms. HOSANY since she moved to the neighbourhood nine years ago. "It's a small little area, everybody sort of knows everybody."
But others said they have noticed the local character changing recently.
"It is a pretty safe, quiet neighbourhood, but the last year there's been a lot of drug activity," Dave said, pointing out several "hot spots" he says are dens of vice.
Another resident, Kimberly CLISH, said she has seen evidence of an increasing drug problem, and her brother discovered a used syringe in the parking lot of the Country Style coffee shop across the street a few days ago.
Police are asking anyone who might have information about the crime to get in touch with them.

Commemorating the tragedy that history forgot
The water was calm when officers set out for a Lake Simcoe patrol on June 7, 1958. But a hellish storm swept through that night, taking five lives in the worst single-incident death toll in Royal Canadian Mounted Police history
By Barry WARD, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page A12
It was the largest single-incident loss of life in the 135-year history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which stretches from the skirmishes of the Northwest Rebellion to the slaying of four officers near Mayerthorpe, Alberta.
But history has largely forgotten five officers who drowned 50 years ago this weekend on a stormy Lake Simcoe night in what should have been a routine patrol of the "dry" Georgina Island Indian Reserve. As with recent Royal Canadian Mounted Police tragedies, the officers were young - four had less than two years of service - and the ensuing controversy reached Parliament Hill. The incident led to changes in Canada's boating regulations.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police will take a step toward rectifying the oversight with a ceremony at the Newmarket detachment tomorrow. Family members of the dead Mounties are expected to attend, along with the last living member from that ill-fated patrol on June 7, The deaths still haunt Murray SMITH, 69, now retired and living in Victoria Harbour, Ontario In a last-minute decision, Mr. SMITH gave up his seat in the boat to another officer.
"I think about it an awful lot," Mr. SMITH said. "I've had a lot of close calls but never that close. It makes cold chills go up your back."
Two weeks after graduating from training, Mr. SMITH was part of a team patrolling the lake in a 14-foot, cedar-strip boat with a 35-horsepower outboard motor. The officers made several arrests for liquor infractions. After supper, the Mounties decided to make one more run from Paradise Beach, west of Jackson's Point.
"I was in the boat, the motor was started and, for some reason, a member came down to the dock and walked right up to the boat and said, 'Smitty, you've been in the boat all afternoon, how about letting me go?' Well, it didn't matter to me, so I got out and he got in and I pushed the boat off and went back up and sat in the police car all night."
That was about 10: 30 p.m., and the lake was calm. After midnight, "a hell of a storm" swept through the area. Mr. SMITH and another Mountie, Ron McDONALD, began to worry. "We kept saying, 'They'd be on land by now, they should be okay.' But we couldn't understand why they didn't call us on the radio."
Mr. SMITH and Mr. McDONALD went to a nearby marina for help. A search party headed out at first light, quickly finding the boat, submerged except for its bow, running lights still on. They also discovered the body of Corporal Herbert SMART, 33, of Toronto, the officer in charge. It was apparent he had been trying to get into a life jacket.
Constables Glen FAROUGH, 22, of Stockton, Manitoba, Maurice MELNYCHUK, 21, of Prince George, British Columbia, David PERRY, 19, of North Burnaby, British Columbia and George RANSOM, 21, of Melville, Saskatchewan., were missing. All were good swimmers, but little hope was given for their survival. None was wearing a life jacket and the water temperature was determined to be 11 degrees on the surface and much colder a few feet down.
After the accident, justice minister Davie FULTON defended the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the House of Commons, saying all rules were followed, the boat had the necessary equipment and was not overloaded. However, a few days later it was brought to his attention that the maximum load for 14-foot boats was 740 pounds, and the five officers weighed a total of 860 pounds.
Within two weeks, before the lake had given up another body (all eventually were found), an inquest was under way at the town hall in Pefferlaw, Ontario, newly painted for the occasion. It included a re-enactment of the patrol with five similar-sized men in the recovered boat. When the men jumped into the water, none of them could use the standard life jackets and cushions. The five-member jury concluded that the boat was likely swamped by 1.4-metre waves, perhaps when one of the fuel tanks ran dry. The jury also found the boat was overcrowded and overloaded, the standard life jackets and cushions were unsatisfactory in emergencies and the metal plaque listing the boat's capacity at 950 pounds was ambiguous.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police officials testified they believed the weight to exclude the boat's motor, which weighed 129 pounds. Officials from the government, boat manufacturers and boating groups said the motor was included, although they agreed the wording was subject to different interpretations. The five Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers also had about 100 pounds of equipment on board.
By the last day of June, Mr. FULTON had told the Commons he would implement the jury's recommendations, including new rules to clarify capacity. On July 1, the Transport Department announced new wording for load-warning plaques, making it clear the specified weight limit included everything in the boat, including motor, gear and people.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced it would set up a board to examine the risks of water patrols. A week later, the last body, that of Constable RANSOM, washed up on shore.
A memorial service was held on Georgina Island that September. The incident then disappeared into history. Corporal Marc LaPorte, an Royal Canadian Mounted Police media relations officer, said the initiative to mark the 50th anniversary came from the force retirees association.
"Why it took 50 years, I'm not sure," Cpl. LaPorte said. "Most people are unaware of it."
The event will begin at 11 a.m., when a plaque will be unveiled. Mr. SMITH will be there, reading Psalm 46, which refers to troubled water. He is glad the deaths are finally receiving some recognition.
"We lost four members in Mayerthorpe, Alberta., and the media picked up that that was the worst tragedy that had ever happened," Mr. SMITH said.
"Although the four members were shot, I can't think of a more tragic death than drowning in ice-cold water in the middle of the night."
Mr. SMITH spent 32 years in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, retiring as a staff sergeant from the Hamilton detachment. He has a son and daughter who are police officers.
In a final twist, Mr. SMITH ended up being posted to Orillia to replace one of the dead officers, where one of his duties was patrolling Lake Simcoe. "I used that boat for the next two years," he said.

Activist librarian made a difference in publishing, literature and the arts
'Feminist and peacenik' challenged the status quo, launched the journal Emergency Librarian and helped stabilize Canada's magazine industry. 'Her principles were so much a part of her life'
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S12
'The times they are a-changin,' Bob Dylan sang in 1964 in a song that captured the upsurge of political and social upheaval as a generation of mostly privileged boomers came of age, questioning all manner of establishment authority. Protests against poverty, racism and the Vietnam War grabbed the headlines, but second-wave feminism was also in full throttle in the United States. Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, which argued that housework and childrearing were not the only ways to be fulfilled as a woman, had kick-started the movement after its publication in 1963. In Canada, Doris Anderson (obituary March 3, 2007), who had become editor of Chatelaine in 1956, was offering her readers thoughtful and provocative articles about all sorts of taboo topics, such as abortion and contraception, and was urging women to take off their aprons and run for public office.
Fast forward almost a decade to Winnipeg. Early in 1973, Harry Easton, the city's chief librarian and president of the Canadian Library Association, asked two young librarians, Phyllis YAFFE and Barbara CLUBB, to organize the theme day at the annual Canadian Library Association conference, which was to be held that June in Sackville, New Brunswick They took on the unpaid task, but they gave their own feminist twist to the theme, "Librarians: beginning, middle and end of career." Specifically, they focused on female librarians and why it was that men held virtually all of the executive positions in a profession in which women occupied the vast majority of jobs.
Needing a speaker, they phoned broadcaster Barbara Frum at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, who declined; then Doris Anderson, who also demurred, but who recommended Sherrill CHEDA, an ardent feminist and the chief librarian at Seneca College in Toronto. That is how Ms. CHEDA came to deliver a keynote address entitled That Special Little Mechanism, referring to the appendage that men carry between their legs.
Delivered by a tiny powerhouse of a woman slightly over five feet tall, who was barely visible above a massive podium that tended to skitter across the stage, the speech was a knock out. Studded with anecdotes and statistics, it not only articulated the reality that many female librarians lived, but it acquired a legitimacy because of the forum in which it was delivered - the profession's annual conference.
"It was shocking," Ms. YAFFE, now vice-chairwoman of the board of Ryerson University and former Chief Executive Officer of Alliance Atlantis, said in a telephone interview. "Nobody asked questions like that." Afterwards, the triumvirate of Ms. CHEDA, Ms. YAFFE and Ms. CLUBB (now the chief librarian of the City of Ottawa) sat on the lawn and plotted their next move: The launch of the oddly titled journal Emergency Librarian, a compendium of book reviews, news, and information infused with feminist voices from the alternative press and radical librarians.
Ms. CHEDA and Ms. YAFFE (who moved to Toronto in September, 1973 and was hired by Ms. CHEDA as a reference librarian at Seneca College) organized the editorial in meetings after work at Ms. CHEDA's kitchen table while Ms. CLUBB maintained the subscription lists in Winnipeg. "Getting information to people was so empowering. We had a social purpose," said Ms. YAFFE who became lifelong Friends with Ms. CHEDA. " She was loyal and caring and inspiring because her principles were so much a part of her life. She was a feminist and a peacenik and absolutely against prejudice of any kind."
Sherrill SCHNEIDER was born in the mid-1930s in Osgood, Indiana, a small town in the American Midwest between Indianapolis and Cincinnati. Her father, Abraham (Abe) SCHNEIDER, was a Russian Jew from Kiev who had walked across Ukraine to Hamburg with his mother and two siblings to escape the pogroms following the Russian revolution. His ultimate destination was Indiana, where his father had settled. That's where Abe SCHNEIDER met and married Myrtle STOUT, the descendant of early Protestant settlers on the eastern coast of the United States. Sherrill was the eldest of their four children.
Over the years Abe SCHNEIDER ran both a shoe and a dry-goods store before going into the scrap-metal business with his father, a business that continues to thrive. Sherrill, who was the valedictorian of her high school, was the first person in her family to go to university. She went briefly to Hanover College, a small private Presbyterian College, in 1954, and then entered the University of Indiana in Bloomington the following September.
Her plan was to become an academic, but the male head of the English department discouraged her dreams by saying dismissively that studying for a doctorate would be a waste of time because she was probably going to get married and have babies. She fulfilled that prediction by marrying a fellow student named Noël PERRY in June, 1958, just after she graduated with a bachelor's degree. While he completed his undergraduate degree she entered the master's program in library science - which, along with teaching and nursing, was then an acceptable occupation for ambitious women. By September, 1959, three months and three courses short of acquiring her library degree, she had moved to San Francisco where her husband had found a job with Social Security, and had produced her first son, Marc (named after the artist Marc Chagall).
The family moved to Baltimore in 1962, where their second son, Andrew, was born that May. Four months later, Ms. CHEDA began working in the history and social-sciences department of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. She earned $4,000 a year and was advised that if she wanted to succeed she should wear pearls and white gloves to work and use Jacqueline Kennedy as a role model. A year later the library gave her a leave of absence to complete her MLS at Indiana University. Thereafter, she and her family moved back to San Francisco where she worked as a librarian at San Francisco State College. Along with her husband, she became involved with the growing resistance to the Vietnam War.
The Perrys' marriage fell apart in 1966 in San Francisco during the era of love and peace. She subsequently moved across the border to Vancouver with her children and her new partner, Michael CHEDA, a draft dodger. She worked in the libraries of the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. They married in 1969, about the time he moved to Toronto to take a job with CFTO television in Markham. She followed with her children several months later and began working at the library of the Indian and Eskimo Association, and then as chief librarian at Seneca College. Her marriage to Mr. CHEDA broke up in about 1975.
Having grown totally frustrated by the lack of professional opportunities and the inequitable share of household responsibilities that she shouldered, Ms. CHEDA became a member of the New Feminists, a group that had split from the Toronto Women's Liberation Movement in April, 1969, over ideological differences. Although she had enthusiastically embraced feminism and the concept of women supporting and loving other women, she did draw some lines. Arriving at a feminist consciousness-raising session in a church basement, Ms. CHEDA was given a mirror and invited to get better acquainted with her vagina. "Give me a break," Ms. CHEDA whispered to her friend Shelagh Wilkinson, who had also declined the mirror on the grounds that, as a trained nurse and midwife, she had seen more then enough vaginas.
Nobody seems to remember exactly how Ms. CHEDA met Ms. Anderson at Chatelaine, but they probably connected in 1972 when Ms. CHEDA began trying to express her feminist ideas in print. They had many common interests, not least of which was the challenge of trying to raise independent sons in a patriarchal society.
Nine months after her Sackville speech, Ms. CHEDA dropped her second feminist shoe when she published the article How to Raise Liberated Children in Chatelaine in March, 1974. Described as a practical parent's guide, the article itemized how her sons were expected to make their own lunches, get themselves around town, make dinner once a week and do laundry and other household tasks. There was an outraged response from many readers, but Ms. CHEDA and Ms. Anderson were not deterred. Another article, On The Way to Liberation: One housewife-mother-librarian's personal and painful journey from martyr mom to liberated person, appeared six months later. About this time, Ms. CHEDA became the expert fielding questions from readers in a monthly advice column, Ask A Feminist.
As for her own kids, they grew up in a household that embraced peace activists, feminists and gay couples. Her son Marc, now a research administrator in the faculty of medicine at the University of Toronto, says that he didn't really have much choice about doing his share of the housework (unlike his Friends, whose mothers made their beds and prepared their lunches), but he had a lot of freedom. His mother was always willing to talk to him "about major things going on in her life, like the life-changing thing that happened after my stepfather moved out. We had a real heart-to-heart, so it wasn't like I never had input," he said. "We were consulted, and we were consulted at a very early age."
Contributing to a magazine such as Chatelaine is a lot easier than running one, especially a start-up operation like Emergency Librarian. Because Ms. CHEDA knew nothing about the mechanics of publishing magazines, she joined an organization called the Canadian Periodical Publishers Association in the mid-1970s and was soon elected to its board of directors. Eventually, probably in 1979 or 1980, she was asked to take on the job of executive director of the floundering, nearly bankrupt group. Even though it meant working for a lower salary and giving up the pension and other benefits she had at Seneca, Ms. CHEDA accepted the challenge.
As an arts administrator she applied the organizational, research and management skills she had learned as a librarian. She travelled across the country by train and bus, sleeping on sofas in the homes of Canadian Periodical Publishers Association members to rally enthusiasm for the floundering organization. Within a year she had turned it around; then she began developing a distribution system that actually helped Canadian magazines reach their subscribers and improve their business prospects.
In the mid-1970s, Ms. CHEDA met lawyer Karl JAFFARY, a former alderman for the old city of Toronto. Also interested in the arts and involved with the Canadian Periodical Publishers Association, Mr. JAFFARY acted for her when she sued the now defunct Weekend magazine on December 17, 1977, for "outing" her as a lesbian in an article called Gay in the Seventies. She won a libel settlement of $5,000 which Mr. JAFFARY advised her to use as a down payment on a rental house in the east end of the city. Over the years they became close Friends. He was drawn to her for "the things that everybody liked about her - she would not take shit from anybody." He admired her independent spirit and her intellect and shared her passions for books, the arts - especially little theatre companies - and organizations dedicated to promoting social justice. They married on May 30, 1987, a union that by all accounts was extremely happy.
By then Ms. CHEDA had left the Canadian Periodical Publishers Association, worked for four years as registrar at the Ontario Arts Council and had shifted, in 1986, to the Culture and Communications Branch of the Ontario government. "With her dynamism, drive and creativity, she put together the Ontario Publishing Centre in the fall of 1991 to help the book and magazine publishing industry in a very bad economic time," said cultural bureaucrat Jim Polk, who was hired to work under Ms. CHEDA on the book side. "Sherrill was very wily and inventive in working with the structure and very demanding of her staff, but in a good way," he said. Before a change of government and the dismantling of the centre in 1995, it gave out nearly $15-million in support money to help book and magazine publishers computerize and modernize their supply and marketing systems. "She intended to make a difference in literature and the arts, and she did," said Mr. Polk.
After a few miserable years in the mid- to late 1990s, dismantling many of the programs she had helped create, Ms. CHEDA took early retirement from the Ontario government. For the last several years she and Mr. JAFFARY travelled, went to the theatre, read books and relished Ms. CHEDA's talents as a gourmet cook. In November, 2004, Ms. CHEDA suffered a stroke which immobilized her left side. She responded well to treatment, although she was left with a slight limp. Besides being an informal reference source for Friends and families about essential books, restaurants, plays and trips, she was one of four guest editors, along with Sally Armstrong, Michele Landsberg and Shelagh Wilkinson, of a special volume of Canadian Woman Studies entitled Celebrating Doris Anderson, which was published in December 2007.
Late last month, Ms. CHEDA developed persistent flu-like symptoms. A blood test led to a diagnosis of acute adult leukemia. The next day she suffered a terminal stroke, which gave her family its second terrible shock in as many days.
Sherrill CHEDA was born in Osgood, Indiana, on February 15, 1936. She died at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto of complications from acute leukemia early on the morning of June 7, 2008. She was 72. Ms. CHEDA leaves her husband, Karl JAFFARY, and her sons Marc and Andrew. She also leaves her grandchildren Kate, Isabella, Desiree and Michael, her father Abe SCHNEIDER, her three siblings and her extended family.
