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.

RISSLING, Mildred Doreen (née LLOYD)
Passed away at University Hospital, London, Ontario on Thursday, May 15, 2008 in her 84th year. Predeceased in 2005 by her husband of 63 years, Ned RISSLING. Also predeceased by two brothers, James and Grant LLOYD. Dearest and most beloved mother of Elaine and Craig CASWELL (Sudbury,) Sharon and David RUBY (Strathroy,) Linda BALTZER (London), Jim and Linda (Strathroy), Shirley (Strathroy), Beverley and Doug JONES (Whitby,) Dale and Jacquie (Saint Thomas,) Terry (Saint Thomas) and Douglas (London). Loving and fun loving sister of Audrey LIMOGES (Robert, deceased,) Arden LLOYD and Carolyn and Leo ROUSSY (Sudbury.) Precious grandmother of Garnet and Joh-Anna, Neil and Elizabeth, Brent and Kami-Rae, Glenn and Lianne, Gregory and Karen, Sandra and David, Beth and Mark, Karen and Jeff, Jennifer and Richard, Sherri and Steven, Frankie, Ned Jr., Tara, Amy-Jo, Shannon and Dave, Tiffany and Kyle, Drew and Amanda, Daniel and Tasha, Melissa and Jamie-Lynn. Also survived by 28 great-grandchildren. Survived by two sisters-in-law, Eva McLEAN and Regina HOSKINS of Regina, Saskatchewan. and several nieces and nephews. This was Mom's legacy - each person meant so much to her, each one equally important. She delighted in her family's visits and kept a little stash of toys and books in her home "in case the great-grandchildren came by." Born in Toronto, the eldest child of Mildred WILSON and Edgar LLOYD (deceased.) She moved to Kagawong as a child, and later to Sudbury. Her kindness in caring for her family was always her first priority - she lived by her Heart. A spirited young woman, she learned to drive the family automobile at age 14 and shared some very humorous stories with her family. She often said she could live without many things, but not without her car. Her grandchildren often teased her with their pet names of Grandma Dynamite, Little Grandma and Diamond Lil because of her love and accumulation of fine jewelry. As a young married woman, Doreen traveled to the Air Force Bases with her husband and young child and made the best of each sometimes difficult situation. A wonderful cook, who could make "something from nothing", and learned how to cook her husbands' favorite German dishes, and took great glee in his compliments of outdoing his own precious mother's cooking. Mom was often asked for her recipes and would simply say they were "all written in her Head" as she divulged her secret style. Doreen was a partner with her husband in their Family Business before moving to London over 30 years ago, although she was sad to leave her Gatchell and Sudbury Friends. She was a great card player and also enjoyed her television game shows and could "outwit" all of us with her brilliant knowledge on many topics. For the past several years in failing health, Mom gratefully acknowledged the special help of her daughter Linda, in both her and Dad's illnesses. She continued to love the simple pleasures of life and very much enjoyed the neighbourly chit chats and especially appreciated the kind help of her good friend Bob (the neighbourhood Mayor). At The Place She Loved Best, a private celebration will take place at the Country Estate Home of her daughter Sharon and Son-in-law David RUBY. Mother loved their long winding and Lantern Lit acres of green fields, with Lilac trees and a myriad of flowers - she loved the fresh fragrances of the grass and the songbirds as they playfully whipped around. She loved to reminisce about this place that reminded her of her beloved childhood home on Manitoulin Island. A spiritual woman who showed great courage in the face of her illness, her life will be celebrated as she had wished, with her family gathered together in Friendship, loads of food, gospel music, story telling and children playing everywhere, running noisily amongst the trees. She would say "it doesn't get any better than this". The Matriarch and Hub of her family, missing her is an "understatement". Safe in the arms of Jesus, peacefully resting and "Free At Last". Thank you Mother - you were the best! On-line condolences and donations may be made through www.mcfarlane-roberts.ca. or if you wish, a donation to any Food Bank would honour our mother. McFarlane and Roberts Funeral Home 519-652-2020, Lambeth in care of arrangements.
