KATES, Myra Louise
Wife, mother, grandmother, sister, baseball and theatre lover. Born October 30, 1931, in Toronto. Died March 8 in Toronto of an intestinal infection, aged 76.
By Sheila KIERAN, Page L6
On a warm May night 57 years ago, my 19-year-old "baby" sister and I were talking as she ironed a slip. We considered such questions as: What would married life be like? How did you know when you were in love? At least marriage would end my grandmother's yelling every evening, "Amy," her rendering of the name of Myra's fiancé, Mannie, "go home."
Myra and Mannie were married on May 24, 1951. They had three daughters: Sara, Eve and Rebecca. They opened a daycare centre and, although they lived close to the edge financially, all seemed well - until 1969, when Myra began to suffer from tingling in her hands and arms. It was diagnosed as a pinched nerve, but before long it became clear it was something much more serious: multiple sclerosis.
As the years went on, her symptoms worsened. But Myra was no victim. When she could no longer walk unassisted, she used a cane and later became knowledgeable about wheelchairs. When she could no longer do needlepoint, she played bridge - like a shark. When reading was no longer possible because she could not hold a book or turn pages, she followed her beloved Blue Jays on television. In winter, she learned to love the Raptors.
Every day Mannie cleaned, cooked and patiently fed Myra. When they went out, which they did with astonishing frequency, she was always smartly dressed and made up. She learned Yiddish and Hebrew. She stopped smoking but was not self-righteous about it. She sat on her condo board - a task that would have challenged the perfectly healthy - and frequently went to see concerts and live theatre.
Mannie made all of this possible, driving to the Berkshires in Massachusetts and to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, or simply to the nearby movie theatre. They enjoyed their five grand_sons and one granddaughter at large family dinners.
Myra became so dependent on Mannie that when he had cancer surgery in 2004, she had to go into a nursing home. Although they occasionally showed signs of their mutual frustration, neither complained of the dark turn their lives had taken.
By the beginning of this year, Myra was losing her eyesight and was in excruciating pain. She had been frequently hospitalized for infections and, at the beginning of March, she went into hospital again. She lost consciousness a few days later. On a Friday night at the beginning of March, she went to sleep and didn't awake, having "outsoared the shadow of our night."
Myra never could explain how, just a teenager, she was wise enough to choose as her mate a man who would care for her, tenderly and loyally, for more than 50 years.
Sheila KIERAN is Myra's sister.

DIAS, Solange Marie
Doctor, nurse, paramedic, mother. Born March 7, 1970, in Chagny, France. Died October 2, 2007, in Toronto of breast cancer, aged By Peter KATIS, Page L6
I was fortunate enough to have met Solange 17 years ago, when we were both in university. I remember the first time I saw her, in late autumn. The sun was setting behind me and all of its rays seemed to focus on this beautiful face before me… the most beautiful face I had ever seen. Her name in French means "Sun Angel."
From the moment of her diagnosis of cancer in February, 2006, Solange had only one fear - saying goodbye to the "greatest achievement" of her life: our daughter Catherine.
Solange would have thrown everything away for the opportunity to raise Catherine. To truly appreciate the significance of this, you have to understand what Solange had accomplished.
She was a doctor. Before this she had been a nurse, and before that a paramedic. Inexplicably, she knew she would die young, and she lived her life compressing time into milestones with great bursts of activity. Yet she took the time to smell the roses. She loved flowers.
Her parents, Armando and Maria, had emigrated from Portugal to France - where Solange was born - and then to Canada when she was four years old. Although she had lived in Toronto most of her life, she always carried herself with a quiet and unassuming French elegance.
She had a soft spot for the vulnerable and always rooted for the underdog. She was modest, yet never compromised her integrity.
Solange was that rare kind of beautiful woman who didn't know just how beautiful she was. She made those around her feel special, and inspired devotion because she was devoted to the end. When she graduated from medical school, she decided to practise family medicine with a focus on palliative care because she wanted to comfort the dying.
Her greatest love was reserved for her child. Catherine Alexandra Dias KATIS came our way on August 11, 2005. Solange was ecstatic, and loved her with all of her capacity to love. She had plans to take her to plays, to the zoo, to the library - to have her experience all of the beautiful things in this world.
Then, six months later, the diagnosis came. Following the devastating news, Solange set up Catherine's future bedroom and playroom, and wrote a letter for her little girl to be read when she was old enough to understand.
And on October 2, I held your left hand, Solange, the same hand I had held two years before when you pushed our little Catherine out of your womb, and I saw you take your last breath. The last thing that stopped was your heart, your heart that had the capacity to embrace the world and everybody in it - but most desired just to embrace Catherine.
Peter KATIS is Solange's husband.

SAUNDERS, Doctor Shelley Rae (KOLOSHUK)
(February 28, 1950 to May 14, 2008)
Professor of Anthropology at McMaster University, Hamilton. Doctor SAUNDERS held a Canada Research Chair in Human Disease and Population Origins and founded McMaster's Ancient DNA Centre. Doctor SAUNDERS was North American editor of the International Journal of Osteoarchaeology and was elected to the Royal Society of Canada in 2001. Shelley received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of Toronto in 1977. Her numerous research projects, in places such as Italy, South Africa, France and Canada received international recognition and were the subject of television documentaries. Her work in forensic anthropology received considerable media attention and one case in particular was the subject of an extensive series of articles in the Hamilton Spectator. Her greatest love, however, was developing and working with her graduate students. Shelley took great pride in their accomplishments. Despite her long battle with cancer (colon cancer, kidney cancer and pancreatic cancer) and despite having to undergo hemodialysis six days a week for the past 5 years, Shelley continued her teaching and research programs. Her latest book entitled 'Biological Anthropology of the Human Skeleton' was co-edited with Doctor Anne KATZENBERG and was just recently published (March, 2008). Shelley leaves behind her sister, Geri KIRKPATRICK, her brother, Robert SAUNDERS, her two children, Robert and Barbara KOLOSHUK, her husband of 37 years, Victor KOLOSHUK, and a host of current and former graduate students. Shelley has just established a scholarship for graduate students in anthropology at McMaster University and her family requests that rather than sending flowers, Friends consider a donation payable to 'McMaster University - Shelley Saunders Scholarships' c/o Mary J. WILLIAMS, 1280 Main Street, Gilmour Hall room 204, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada L8S 4L8. The funeral service will be held at Knox Presbyterian Church, 89 Dunn Street, Oakville at 10 a.m. on Wednesday May 21st, 2008. Visitation will occur at Ward Funeral Home, 109 Reynolds St. Oakville, 905-844-3221 from 6-9 p.m. on Tuesday May 20th, 2008.
