BADALIAN, Rosa (née PASHA)
Matriarch, new Canadian, example of tolerance and goodwill. Born April 30, 1917, in Urmi, Iran. Died August 24, 2007, in Ajax, Ontario, of old age, aged 90.
By Chris WATERS and Jennifer WATERS, Page L8
Rosa may not have been a saint, but she lived a life defined by compassion.
She was born Rosa PASHA in the ancient city of Urmi in northwestern Iran; by ethnicity she was Assyrian and by religion Christian. When she was a small girl out with her father one day, she returned to find her mother and brothers had been killed. During her final days, Rosa called out for a mother she never knew in a way that broke the hearts of her own children.
Throughout her years, she did not let this early act of hatred define her. She made Friends with members of all of Iran's communities, and in addition to Assyrian she spoke Armenian, Turkish, Farsi and Russian.
After moving to Tehran in her late teens, Rosa met Bagrad BADALIAN, an Armenian who worked as a water driller. Together they raised five girls and a boy, and despite limited education and provincial upbringings, they were cosmopolitan. The family survived privation at times, but usually lived a modestly comfortable life.
Rosa had little patience with religious traditions that were not inclusive. She was a Christian who took "love thy neighbour" seriously and lived it sincerely.
She supported and sheltered other women and their children in times of need. She cared for her mother-in-law in her final years and her sister-in-law Serpouhi for more than 50 years following an injury that left Serpouhi with limited capacity. During the Islamic Revolution and the Iran-Iraq war, this pattern of helping others continued in spite of food shortages, power outages and a hostile environment.
Coming to Canada in 1982 - after bribing their way out of Iran - was a blessing for Rosa and Bagrad. Most of their children were here already and Rosa dived right in, sometimes with amusing cultural and linguistic misunderstandings. At parks she headed immediately toward wooded areas, foraging for the perfect leaves for dolma.
Like all great cooks, Rosa had an instinctual knowledge of food and liked her own cooking best. Her love of salt was legendary. When one of her daughters or daughter-in-law cooked for her, she would say, "It was good - but I added some …" and list the ingredients the dish needed. A visit to metzmama, an Armenian word for grandmother, was always full of good food and an interesting story.
When her husband died in 1996, Rosa declined, although she would perk up whenever a grandchild or great-grandchild was present. In spite of debilitating pain from arthritis, she was loving to the end, stubborn to the end and matriarch of the family to the end.
Chris WATERS and Jennifer WATERS are Rosa's grandchildren.

WATSON, Arthur
In memory of Arthur who left us April 29, 1992.
Sixteen years ago today
My dear husband passed away
I miss him so… no words can say
And think about him every day
The violin he used to play
Is silent now and tucked away
But in my memories I can hear
His voice and music still so dear
- Lovingly remembered by Violet, Philip and Irene, Colleen and Reg, Monica, John, Riley, Kate and Nadia.

Although afflicted by Alzheimers for the past number of years, Archie was very much able to convey his love and support to his children David MacDONALD of Chatham, and Kevin MacDONALD and his wife Cheryl of Wardsville, through big smiles and an ever eager appetite as always! Grandpa will be sadly missed by Ian MacDONALD, Darrin EVANS, Michael MacDONALD, and Stephen MacDONALD, and is now joined in heaven with his grandchildren the late Richard (1998) and Laura (1985). Also survived by great-grandchildren Isaac MacDONALD, Ethan EVANS, Isabella MacDONALD, and Emma MacDONALD. Archie, the oldest of five children, is survived by his sister Margaret CLARKE, brother Allan and his wife Betty MacDONALD, and brother Ross MacDONALD. Predeceased by sister Jean WATSON, sister in-law Donna MacDONALD, and brother in-law James CLARKE. Archie was a born farmer and most of his early years were spent working in agriculture as a labourer, especially during harvest season. He enlisted in 1940 and served in the Second World War. He was in England, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Germany, and returned home the day after his father died on January 23, 1946. After the war, Archie continued his dedication to hard work, travelling to Western Canada as a farm hand during harvest season. He also worked as security on the railroad while he was out West, and in meat packing plants in Winnipeg. He returned home to work as a dispatcher for a transport company, a shipper at National Grocers, and even had his own Taxi company. In 1956 he became an Insurance Representative and the rest is history. He was Top Seller Million Dollar Round Table for three years. Archie started his own Broker business in 1989. He always worked for his clients and was trusted by all. He was involved in church life through A.O.T.S. Men's Club, and personal issues for himself and individuals through Alcoholics Anonymous. In September he would have celebrated 46 years of sobriety through A.A. A Special thank you to Doctor Tom PERKIN who always made himself available to help us learn to deal with dad's illness. He helped us maximize his quality of life and maintain his personal dignity. And finally to each and every person at Meadowpark Nursing Home for the exceptional quality of care you provided for our father for the past 5 years, you all know who you are! Thanks to you all!

DARVELL, Henry
Father, husband, grandfather, friend, neighbour, gardener, outdoorsman, engineer, self-declared curmudgeon. Born March 26, 1931, in Glasgow, Scotland. Died July 27, 2007, in Carleton Place, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 76.
By Shayna WATSON and Rob JENNINGS and Giles DARVELL, Page L8
It is fitting that Henry, born in Scotland and raised in England, would find himself in a Canadian hamlet of 100 people most famous for its pub. He claimed status as the Ashton Village Curmudgeon with a self-published book by that name. The book was atlas, architectural document and love song to the village and life he adored.
He left Ashton, near Ottawa, adorned with sculptures made of gourds, daffodils, trees, garden gates with sunflower designs and unlikely connections between people.
Henry cultivated relationships. He was married twice, first for 26 years to Betty, with whom he had three children - Giles, Karen and Tim - then for 20 years to Susan, who predeceased him in Susan and Henry found great joy in their large garden. Henry designed and built additions to his barn and home. He traded lumber for copper and began building fountains; this gave way to gourd sculptures and then to painting and life drawing.
Henry accommodated, though didn't give in to, his failing health. He had cardiomyopathy.
Henry enjoyed drinks at the Ashton Pub on darts night, ice cream at the General Store, a good meal and the perfume of a beautiful flower.
Behind his big gruff exterior was a gentle man who easily fell under the spell of small children, delicate garden creatures and the promise of seeds.
He spoke with great pride of his children and grandchildren. His Friends were a group of people as eclectic as his interests. The extent of his social circle was evident at his 70th birthday party - toddlers, retired farmers, academics and artists joined the celebration.
Although he was unable to walk more than a block or two, Henry headed for Mexico with his dog and camper van. This was preceded by trips to northwestern Ontario, Yukon and James Bay, and followed by a trip to Newfoundland.
In the later stages of his illness, he complained that he was "dying too bloody slowly," but Henry lived independently until a few days before his death, in his home surrounded by Dougal, his canine companion, sports on the telly and a book by his side.
When he died, he left an ambitious five-foot canvas with the beginnings of a farm scene, gourds partly carved, fish to feed, plants to tend and frogs to show to visiting children. These were the signs of hope and the love of life that desired one more day.
Shayna WATSON and Rob JENNINGS are Henry's Friends, and Giles DARVELL is his eldest son.

WATSON, Kathleen Joyce " Joy" (née TOZER)
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.

Sport utility vehicle's driver sought in triple homicide
By Timothy APPLEBY with files from Colin FREEZE and the Canadian Press, Page A1
Toronto -- Homicide detectives Sunday night were hunting the driver of a bullet-riddled sport utility vehicle, found abandoned in a tranquil Etobicoke neighbourhood with the bodies of three young men inside.
All three had been shot to death and then apparently driven in a stolen Nissan Pathfinder to Lunness Road near the intersection of Browns Line and Lake Shore Boulevard, close to the dividing line between west Toronto and Mississauga.
The trio were identified early last night as Adrian Inglis BANNERMAN, 29, Aaron Brendan MacDONALD, 20, and Kurt Atiba CHARLES, 27.
All three victims are from Toronto, pushing the city's homicide tally so far this year to 35.
Detective-Sergeant Dean BURKS of the homicide squad said the slain men had been at a nightclub a few hours earlier and that the incident may be gang-related.
The bodies and the gold-coloured sport utility vehicle were discovered at around 3 a.m. and identifying the men was initially complicated by the fact that they had apparently been stripped of their identification.
But clues swiftly began arriving as Friends and relatives converged on the scene in the early-morning hours, including a distraught man who said one of the victims was his younger brother.
“I know who did this, they killed my little brother” the man screamed as he ducked under the yellow crime-scene tape and ran toward the Nissan before being detained by police and taken to the 22 Division station for questioning.
Det.-Sgt. BURKS said none of the victims was in the driver's seat of the car and that the bodies had likely been transported to the neighbourhood from elsewhere. Highway 427 and the Queen Elizabeth Way are both a short drive from where the car was found.
As well, bullet holes in the Nissan's chassis indicated that the shooting was done from outside the car.
“We have information that there was another person in the vehicle and we're making efforts to locate that individual, ” Det.-Sgt. BURKS said.
Police said no one in the neighbourhood heard any gunshots or saw the car arrive on Lunness Road. The first cruisers on the scene arrived in response to a telephone tip.
Torrential, on-off rain throughout the morning further hampered the investigation.
The 10-year-old Nissan appears to have been stolen or borrowed. A check on its licence plate showed it to be registered to an Ontario resident with the Ukrainian surname CHORNOMAZ.
Contacted Sunday by The Globe and Mail, an Etobicoke woman with that name said she did not wish to discuss the matter.
Leafy and normally peaceful, Lunness Boulevard backs on to Alderwood Memorial Park and is part of a residential community where crime is rare.
“It's a great neighbourhood, everybody is friendly, something like this has never happened here before, ” a male resident said.
Word of what had happened, however, seems to have spread quickly.
As the investigation got under way, the Nissan protected from the rain by a tarpaulin, a young woman drove up and told a Globe photographer and police that she knew one of the victims and that she is pregnant with his child.
A second young woman who arrived with a group of male Friends said she was from Brampton and that she too knew at least one of the deceased.
Then came the man who said one of the victims was his brother.
The triple homicide brought the number of killings in Toronto over the previous week to six.
On Monday, William Ross MAGILL, 64, was stabbed to death at his mid-town apartment.
On Thursday, 17-year-old Shazad KHAWAJA was shot to death in the east end.
And in another homicide this past weekend, Michael WATSON, 28, was shot at a strip mall on Scarborough's Rylander Boulevard early Saturday morning.
In addition, four other people were wounded during the past week in non-fatal shootings.
Despite the short-term surge in killings, the year's homicide total of 35 is still six lower than it was at the same time last year.
