PETKOFF, Beatrice Jane (formerly MacKAY, née FINLAY)
Bea died early morning, February 25, 2008 at Eagle Terrace nursing home in Newmarket. She was born in Toronto, November 6, 1916. Bea's early working career with Household Finance Inc., took her to Owen Sound, Ontario, where she met and married (1942) her first husband, Duncan Campbell (Cam) MacKAY. Bea and Doctor Cam founded MacKay Animal Clinic in Whitby in 1957, that continues to provide care to companion animals to this day. She is predeceased by her son David Edmund (1968), her brother Harold and Cam (1996). In 2000, she remarried the 'Amazing Ted' PETKOFF (she 84, he 96). They lived in Sutton until her stroke on October 28, 2007. Bea is survived by her admiring and loving family. Ted PETKOFF (now 104) of Sutton, Mary Lynn and Clayton MacKAY of Nobleton, her two devoted grand_sons and their special families, David, Janet. Finlay and Henry MacKAY of Toronto, Michael, Sue, Isabelle and Charlotte MacKAY of Thornbury. Beatrice lived a remarkable and full life with strength and courage through the good times and bad. From Calgary to Guelph to Whitby to Daytona/Sauble Beaches back to Whitby and finally to Sutton, she carried on following her heart and her duties. Every place she lived was little better and brighter because she was there. No formal funeral will be held, a celebration of her life will take place at a later time. In lieu of flowers, donations would be kindly accepted in her name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The family would like to offer hearty thanks to the Southlake Regional Hospital in Newmarket, and in particular the nurses and staff of the 6th floor Cancer Medicine wing, and the attentive staff on the 3rd floor at Eagle Terrace in Newmarket, for their outstanding care of both Bea and our family.

Family, Friends mourn loss of 'gentle spirit'
Music, memories grace celebration of 25-year-old shooting victim's short but full life
By Sarah BOESVELD, Page A11
Friends and family used music and memories yesterday to say goodbye to Dylan ELLIS, a young man lauded as a fiercely devoted friend, brother and son at his memorial service yesterday.
A pencil sketch of a grinning Mr. ELLIS rested amid a smattering of framed photos at the sanctuary of Rosedale United Church during the memorial service.
A photo slideshow depicted the 25-year-old Mr. ELLIS and his Friends at play. Stories shared by 16 of Mr. ELLIS's loved ones drew periodic laughter from the nearly 500 guests crammed into the pews and hallways of the church.
Mr. ELLIS was shot dead early Friday morning while waiting in a Range Rover for a friend to return a set of keys. His best friend, Oliver MARTIN, 25, was also fatally shot and will be remembered in a service this afternoon.
The violent crime shook the city and surprised many who struggle to understand why the young men from Rosedale were killed in a brand of crime associated with neighbourhoods much different from their own.
Mourners heard yesterday that Mr. ELLIS's favourite food was a plain bagel soaked in Tabasco sauce. His favourite place to be was with the Friends he loved like family.
Friend Graham SMITH imagined Mr. ELLIS up in heaven "with his right arm around Jimi Hendrix and his left around his long-time crush, Audrey Hepburn."
Cody ELLIS sobbed as he described his older brother and fellow guitar player as a role model and best friend.
"You taught me how to be a good person," he said, addressing his brother directly.
Akasha ELLIS remembered his little brother's sparkling eyes and his calm, yet energetic, presence in their family.
Mr. ELLIS's girlfriend, Caitlin BROWN, said the last thing he told her was that he wanted them to grow old together.
"I wanted that more than anything," Ms. BROWN said through tears. "Your gentle spirit was taken from us in such a violent way."
The circumstances of Mr. ELLIS's death were rarely mentioned in the service.
Friends and family hunched in the pews in front of a sanctuary adorned by a weathered pair of shoes and a scuffed surfboard. A white electric guitar was plugged into an amplifier, as if waiting to be played.
A recording of Foxglove, an acoustic Bruce Cockburn song, serenaded the crowd as they sat in silence exchanging hugs and wiping away tears while watching a video slideshow featuring a smiling Mr. ELLIS.
The tricks behind his mischievous grin were also talked and laughed about during the service. Long-time friend Ben McPHEE remembered Mr. ELLIS for his playful demeanour. He recalled a paint fight instigated by Mr. ELLIS one summer when he was working as a house painter.
"I think it's safe to say every girl that met him had a crush on him," said Katie PETRIW, a close friend of Mr. ELLIS's sister, Kiri. "And if you didn't it was because the girl next to you had."
She recalled how Mr. ELLIS used to chase her around his house with a forkful of tuna after discovering she loathed the smell, taste and touch of the stuff.
A lone can of tuna rested at the scene of the crime yesterday. The sidewalk outside the condominium at Richmond and Niagara Streets where the two men were gunned down is still lined with flowers and notes, now starting to brown and wilt in the sun. A police command post and flyers begging for information also remain.
Residents of the complex held a community meeting last night to discuss how to tackle the recent violence in and around their neighbourhood.
Police have ruled nothing out and are still digging for clues while they consider a YouTube campaign and a reward posting to help find the suspect, described as a black man with a light complexion who rode away on a bike.
