Three killed in weekend gunplay
By Carolyn ABRAHAM, Monday, October 24, 2005, Page A12
Three men were shot dead on Toronto streets over the weekend in two separate, bloody and very public displays of gun power.
Some time around 6: 30 yesterday evening, two men were driving near the intersection of Finch Avenue and Martingrove Road in Etobicoke when two men on foot fired at them, police said.
Their silvery-coloured vehicle then veered through the intersection and crashed into the fence outside Elmbank Junior Middle Academy School.
"Both of the men were in the vehicle when they were shot," Toronto Sergeant Mike ROSINA said last night as officers worked in the cold drizzle, gathering grim measurements at the scene.
Inspector Mike EARL of 23 Division said the driver was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead. A passenger, whose body lay covered under an orange sheet on the sidewalk last night, died at the scene.
The suspects were seen fleeing eastbound on foot after the shooting, said Insp. EARL. As a result, police cordoned off the intersection at all four ends and began a methodical hunt in the area that involved forensics teams and at least one German Shepherd.
"Due to the amount of blood at the scene... we're also considering that there may be a third victim," he added. "We're just being cautious."
Police could not say last night if the double shooting had any connection to the fatal gunfire that erupted just 26 hours earlier in north Etobicoke -- an area that has borne the brunt of this summer's gun-related violence.
In that case, police received a 911 call at 4: 25 p.m. Saturday reporting gun shots fired at Finch and Albion Road. When police arrived they discovered 22-year-old Brandon Archibold STERLING lying on the street in front of a townhouse complex.
Mr. STERLING was pronounced dead at the hospital and an autopsy yesterday concluded he had died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
Police are looking for information about a dark blue Dodge, or Chrysler, minivan that witnesses: described fleeing the scene immediately after that shooting.
Toronto has suffered a record number of fatal shootings this year, with this weekend's deaths bringing the total to 64 -- 42 of them gun slayings.
Shortly before shots rang out at Finch and Martingrove yesterday, women who lost children to gunfire held a rally in Toronto calling themselves UMOVE -- short for United Mothers Opposing Violence Everywhere.
Toronto police also reported yesterday that they had pulled the body of a white man in his mid-30s from the Humber River at about 4: 15 p.m. The cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

'Crack house' slash slays Stratford man
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter
Stratford -- A Stratford man is dead and another is in police custody after a stabbing yesterday morning at a downtown home neighbours called a "crack house."
After receiving a call about 11: 15 a.m. from a woman inside the house at 93 Grange Street, police found 31-year-old Todd ROSS bleeding from knife wounds.
ROSS was taken to Stratford General Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after noon, city police said.
A suspect known to police fled from the home. He was arrested yesterday afternoon in Barrie as he got off a bus from Toronto.
Nikolas KERR, 26, of Stratford, is charged with first-degree murder.
Neighbours on the quiet downtown street were shocked to hear of the homicide, but weren't surprised it happened at the frequently visited home on Grange Street.
"That house has a lot of history with people going in and out," said one neighbour.
She woke up about 11 a.m. after she heard a woman screaming for help.
She saw the woman yelling on the front porch of the house where the stabbing occurred and ran across the street to see if she could help.
"There was a man on the floor just laying in a pool of blood," she said.
Other neighbours assumed the barrage of police and emergency vehicles meant there had been a drug bust at the house between Front Street and Nile Street.
"There's no question," said one woman, "there's (drug) pick-ups at the front door."
People living on the street said they were shocked at the violent death.
"This is Stratford. Nothing like this ever happens here," said a man who was sitting on his porch.
"I wouldn't have guessed it," said a young woman who lived next door. "It freaks me out."
Neighbours said they believe the two-storey house was a rooming house with many tenants, but neither KERR or ROSS is believed to have lived in the house.

The way you had to leave us
Will always seem unfair
Sad are the hearts that love you
Silent the tears that fall

In all that life has given us
And all that's left to do
We will never have a greater gift
Than the time we spent with you

Mother remembers ROSS as an inspiration to others
Hundreds gather in a Toronto synagogue to say goodbye to the slain 25-year-old.
By Tara BRAUTIGAM, Canadian Press, Sat., October 8, 2005
Toronto -- Friends, family members and strangers moved by the tragic death of Alicia ROSS came together yesterday to remember the slain 25-year-old as a bright, bubbly and generous person with the power to touch the lives of nearly everyone she met.
More than 500 people jammed into a Toronto synagogue to show their sympathy and lend moral support as ROSS's adoptive mother, Sharon FORTIS, tearfully described a little girl who grew into a loving, caring and compassionate daughter.
"She was an adorable baby, a precocious toddler, a blossoming preteen and a terrible, terrible teenager," Fortis said during a poignant and emotional eulogy that was marked with equal parts humour and tears.
"Goodnight, our love, our dove."
ROSS's remains were discovered in two different wooded areas northeast of Toronto late last month, five weeks after she vanished without a trace from outside the home she shared with her family in the north Toronto suburb of Markham.
Daniel SYLVESTER, a 31-year-old next-door neighbour who turned himself in to police September 21, faces a charge of second-degree murder.
As she spoke, the diminutive FORTIS reminisced about how ROSS loved the outdoors, strumming her guitar and watching the popular reality television show The Amazing Race with her mom, "always saying, 'We could do that.' "
She also spoke of the impression ROSS left with people during a life she described as brief but full, citing as an example the time her daughter helped to encourage a grateful co-worker who was struggling through a bout of depression.
FORTIS thanked ROSS's Friends -- "pillars of strength," she called them -- as well as the media, the community and York Region police, whom she referred to as her "Linus blanket throughout this ordeal" for their help in the search for her missing daughter.
It wasn't until SYLVESTER contacted police that ROSS's body was recovered from two locations: wooded areas near Manilla, northeast of Toronto, and Coboconk, where the SYLVESTER family kept a weekend retreat.

Jack also played in the Harbord Orchestra and sang in early television, choir and grandstand shows. Jack was a member of the Initial Festival Singers at the Stratford Festival Inauguration. Throughout his career, he conducted numerous school and community choirs and book shows, ending with seventeen years in Florida with a choir of thirty retirees.

MOES, Barbara Ann (née WHITE/WHYTE) (June 5, 1939-2005)
of Cobourg, Ontario died peacefully on February 2, surrounded by her close family in Southlake Hospital, Newmarket after a heroic struggle with cancer. She was born in Windsor, Nova Scotia to the late Gordon and Frances (ROSS) WHITE/WHYTE. She will be forever missed by her daughter, Jane DE MUNNICH of Sutton, Ontario and her husband, Peter and their two children, Mattea and Clara, her son, William MOES of Lakefield, Ontario and his wife, Elizabeth and their two children, Kyle and Katlyn, by her brother James WHITE/WHYTE and his wife Meridith, and her brother John WHITE/WHYTE and his wife Lillian. Until her hospitalization on New Year's Eve, 2004, she lived in Cobourg for the last 14 years, where she pursued her passions of painting and writing. Prior to this, she was the Marketing Director of the Banff Film Festival, and the editor of Broadcaster Magazine. She graduated as one of Trinity College, U. of T.'s first mature students with an Honours B.A. in English literature, and also received her A.R.C.T. in singing. She was a professional model in Toronto and Halifax. For a while she was a member of the Hart House Choir; her love of singing made the loss of her voice to her third cancer ten years ago all the more poignant. She will be remembered in her hometown of Windsor, Nova Scotia as the Princess of the Apple Blossom Festival, as a precocious musician on the violin and piano. The funeral will be held at MacCoubrey's Funeral Home, 30 King St. East, Cobourg, at 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 6 with the visitation at 1 p.m. The reception will be held at her home immediately following the service.

The woman takes off her amber glasses and walks
to the blue house with ochre shutters.
On the table she finds a book of poems
Written in a child's hand.
She reads by lamplight
and the clack, clack of the shutters.
A car pulls up.
There is a knock on the door.
A voice says "Your room is ready".

Andrea ROSS
By Guy Sprung, Tuesday, February 15, 2005 - Page A22
Coffee-shop employee, writer. Born June 30, 1975, in Kingston, Ontario. Died Aug, 27, 2004, in Montreal, by her own hand, aged Tiny, tattooed, with multi-coloured, streaked hair and enough moxie to be the punk-rock Queen of Montreal, Andrea ROSS was an icon at Navarino's, the Greek pastry and coffee shop on Montreal's Park Avenue, where she worked. But the smile with which she served up café au lait in the morning successfully belied the pain life was causing her. A former heroin addict who had briefly financed her habit by working the streets, Andrea had somehow found the strength to break her dependency and had recently successfully completed methadone treatment. She'd become a trusted employee at Navarino's, where the coffee is good, the working conditions great and the early-morning community clientele is varied and entertaining. She was talking about making management.
To those close to her it seemed as though Andrea was finally hitting a plateau that most might consider "normal." A few days before her death, she had even, with great pride and glee, cut off the skull pendant she had worn around her neck for the last six years and replaced it with a woven leather necklace.
A fellow worker at Navarino's wrote of Andrea as "more real than anyone I have ever met -- no contrivances, barriers, no artifice, no facades." She was one of those rare compassionate human beings who felt the pain and the happiness of those around her with utter sincerity and profound depth.
Extremely intelligent, she wanted to be a writer and had finished the first 30 pages of a fictionalized autobiography. Her writing is clear, powerful. Her observations of human nature and of herself are detailed, brutally honest. She knew more, she understood more, she felt more than most of us. (Her street name in her writing is "Sophie" -- wisdom, in Greek.)
Andrea was capable, on the spur of the moment, of hitch-hiking to California and back with her dog. She knew how to party but could also be subject to bouts of depression and anger. Then her nickname became "Angria." To Friends she would complain that life wasn't "fair," that she felt too "sensitive," that she was "tired."
Suicide had been an option since the time, six years earlier, when she came home to find her boyfriend hanging in their bedroom door-frame. His drug stash had been stolen and he owed a lot of money, so he had decided to sidestep the resulting serious problems. Andrea kept the dog leash and the belt he had used. She committed suicide in exactly the same way.
I was one of many to whom she served morning coffee at Navarino's. A couple of times a week for a couple of years, in my half-somnolent state, I barely spoke two words to her. Yet I feel complicit in her death. Is it not our responsibility as human beings to look each other in the eye when we meet? To be aware of the humans we come in contact with each day and somehow communicate that the world is a place where it's worth living?
Andrea was special. More than 200 people attended her funeral service. But Andrea's death didn't even rate a tiny mention in our newspapers or media newscasts. Suicide as a cause of death in Canada is statistically on a par with automotive accidents. Quebec has one of the higher suicide rates in the world, yet publicly we ignore this reality. Does our shame and lack of openness about the frequency of suicide make the act mysterious and attractive to those who are tempted?
Andrea leaves behind her parents, her brother, and a wide swath of Friends and admirers in Montreal.
Theatre director Guy SPRUNG wrote this with guidance from Andrea's Friends and the staff at Navarino's

MATHESON, Wilhillmine Nevett
Born in Glasgow at 6 am April 2, 1914 died at 7 pm on Monday February 7, 2005. She was the last surviving child of Charles Joseph Keith MATHESON and Isa Keith ROSS and at the age of 90 lived the longest of her four brothers; Charles, John, William and Norman and her two sisters Gladys SCLATER and Phyllis MEREDITH. They are survived by Bud MEREDITH, Mary MATHESON and Lucienne MATHESON, the spouses of Phyllis, Billy, and Norm.
Her nieces, Joan GUTZEIT, Marsha GREENBAUM, Barbara WARREN, Pamela HARRISON, Lynda FEENAN, Nikki MATHESON, and Janice MATHESON and nephews Robbie MEREDITH, Ian MATHESON and Bryan MATHESON all have fond memories of her visits. Whether dancing, singing or telling stories, our Auntie Winnie always made each of us feel unique in this world. We will all miss that special quality.
Sadly she lost three young people she was especially close to Lynda's husband Mike OSTROWSKI who died at 44, her nephew Scot MATHESON, Billy's son who died at 38 and nephew Donald MATHESON, Charlie's son who died at 28.
Her oldest brother Charlie (age 19) arrived in Toronto, Canada in the fall of 1928 and was followed by their parents and Gladys (17), John (16), Winnie (14), Phyllis (11), Billy (8) and Norm (6). Winnie started working shortly after she arrived and a year later was employed by General Electric Canada where she worked for 50 years. Quite an achievement, fifty years with one company! She was well liked there and respected for the good job she did in the accounting department. They didn't want her to leave and she agreed to stay for a few months after her 65th birthday.
In her retirement years she enjoyed living in Dunedin, Florida in the winter months and in Toronto at 33 Rosehill Ave. for the remainder of the year. When her health failed she moved to the Laughlin Centre which she enjoyed. With a twinkle in her eye, she remarked that they kept her so busy she might as well be working. She loved the people, companionship, the games and the outings. Later she moved to Belmont House. Her nieces Janice and Marsha who spent time with her during her last two days were impressed by how well she was liked and cared for there during her final days.
A private burial will be held. At a later date this spring, the family has planned a reception to celebrate the lives of Winnie and her brothers and sisters. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be sent to the Alzheimer's Association.

ROSS, Sir George William, 1914 -- Died This Day
Friday, March 18, 2005 Page S7
Politician born near Nairn, Ontario, on September 18, 1841. Originally a school teacher and school inspector, he entered politics in 1879 and won a seat in the Commons only to lose it in the 1883 federal election. After that, he switched to provincial politics and accepted the education portfolio in the Ontario government of Oliver MOWATT. It was not an easy job, yet he managed to resolve such bitter conflicts as the issue of language and religion in separate schools and disputes over why his department provided funding for the University of Toronto but left out denominational colleges. In 1899, he took over from Premier Arthur HARDY but lost power in the election of 1905. He served as Leader of the Opposition until 1907 when he was appointed to the Senate. He also wrote two books about his life in politics.

ROSS, James, F.C.A.
Peacefully in Ottawa on Sunday, April 24, 2005. Jim was the dearly loved and much cherished husband of Beatrice "Bea" (KEENAN.) Jim was the treasured uncle of Brenda MORRISON (John) of Beaconsfield, Quebec and was predeceased by his parents John and Harriett (PURVES) his sister Jessica YULE (the late David YULE) of Montreal, Quebec and his first wife Hazel SCOTT. A proud graduate of McGill and a Chartered Accountant of great distinction, Jim established the Pricewaterhouse Coopers office in Ottawa and was its Managing Partner for a quarter of a century. An easy going, good humoured, extremely organized gentleman of principle and kindness, Jim relished his service as President of the Rideau Club, the Ottawa Red Cross and the Royal Ottawa Golf Club. Jim was particularly fond of his instrumental role in ensuring the membership of women in the Rideau Club and the leadership he undertook in re- establishing the Club following the loss to fire of its original building. Quick of mind and body and a high school basketball star, Jim loved to read, ski, curl, golf, and compete at tennis, squash and his Thursday night poker games. Jim delighted in salmon and trout fishing trips from Ungava Bay to Australia, British Columbia to Scotland, and the Miramichi in New Brunswick. The always smiling Jim was a person of highest integrity who served with honour as the official agent of the Liberal Party of Canada for many years. Jim embraced every day with happiness and while demanding much of himself, he overlooked with a twinkle the faults of others. Jim was an accomplished man of action, style, compassion and the rarest quality of grace. Friends may call at McEvoy-Shields Funeral Home, 235 Kent Street, Ottawa, on Wednesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Mass at Saint Patrick's Basilica, 220 Kent Street, Ottawa on Thursday at 10: 30 a.m. Donations would be appreciated in Jim's name to Saint Patrick's Basilica Restoration Fund or to The Perley Rideau Veterans' Health Centre where he received such compassionate care from the staff at Gatineau One South as well as his dedicated private caregivers.

THOMAS, Harriet " Hallie" (née TOMPKINS)
Died peacefully with her family at her bedside, on Monday, April 25th, 2005, at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. Hallie was born in New York City on December 4th, 1913, the daughter of Leslie Jay TOMPKINS, a noted law professor, and Jean Edgar BURNET, a well-known suffragette. Hallie graduated from The Brearley and from Vassar, where she was the editor of the college newspaper. After graduation she went to Paris as a free-lance journalist for the New York Herald Tribune. There she met John Kempster (J.K.) THOMAS, a brilliant philosophy student who later became a respected editor and psychologist. They were married in 1937 and moved to Toronto where, as a member of the Junior League, she put together the children's radio program 'Sounds Fun'. She was also very involved with the National Ballet of Canada, serving on its first Board of Directors and as the editor of the Ballet News. Saturday nights were spent in rowdy stimulating conversation with her long time Friends Morley and Loretto CALLAGHAN, Mary Lowrey ROSS, film Critic for Saturday Night magazine, and Eustace ROSS, the symbolist poet. When Hallie's husband died, she took up a new career, Real Estate, at the age of 55. After her retirement, she travelled widely across the continent in her red convertible with Molly, her beloved Irish setter. Always game for new challenges, in her latter years she became a prize-winning duplicate bridge player.
She is survived by four children: Mary FARRAR (Edward) and John THOMAS (Liz WHELPDALE) of Kingston, Ontario, and Jeannie Thomas PARKER and Christie Thomas POTTS of Toronto. She was also loved by her late brother James B. TOMPKINS, her sister-in-law, Patty, her niece Teri, and her late nephews, Leslie J. and James B. TOMPKINS, all of Toronto. She was the loving grandmother of 13 grandchildren: Ross, Scott and Andrew FARRAR, Jean PAQUIN (Andy,) Hannah CARLSEN (Angelo), Deepamala and Stephen THOMAS, Tony PARKER, Lisa NORTH (Chris,) Trevor and Joanna POTTS and the late Gavin and Jason POTTS. She was the caring great-grandmother of Meghan and Caitlyn NORTH, Mika CARLSEN and Sarah PAQUIN.
She loved: Friends and Friendship, canoeing in the evenings, helping out in small ways, scotch, genealogy, poolside afternoons, mysteries, crosswords, heady conversation, jokes and laughter, elegance, Gershwin, the Toronto Maple Leafs, French cooking, the New Yorker, scrabble and bridge, parties, bargains, swimming the breast stroke, sunsets, yoga, poetry, and the open road. But most of all, she loved family. We will all miss her enormously.
Funeral arrangements will be announced in tomorrow's paper.

Neighbours are relieved arrest made
Police find human remains 100 kilometres from where Alicia ROSS was last seen
By Unnati GANDHI and Timothy APPLEBY, With a report from Oliver MOORE, Thursday, September 22, 2005, Page A17
Sitting around the kitchen table, four Friends of Alicia ROSS's family tried to calm their nerves with a cup of tea yesterday afternoon. They couldn't bear to be outside where lines of police tape surrounded the neighbouring home of 31-year-old Daniel SYLVESTER, who surrendered to police and is charged with second-degree murder.
"Why didn't he do it earlier?" asked Benny ARONOWITZ, who lives on Green Lane. "The family had to suffer so much."
One of Mr. ARONOWITZ's Friends, Nina REZMOVITZ, said her son, David, and Ms. ROSS were good Friends.
"We're all parents, and this is the worst thing that could happen to any of us," she said. "David and his girlfriend scoured the ravine for hours. He was so distraught."
Ms. ROSS, 25, was last seen by her boyfriend, Sean HINE, just after midnight on August 17 at the home where she lived with her parents. Police described Mr. HINE as a person of interest, but yesterday her next-door neighbour turned himself in.
Hours later, police discovered human remains in two locations. They said they're confident the remains are those of Ms. ROSS.
Ontario's chief coroner confirmed the remains were found near the town of Manilla, about 50 kilometres northeast of Markham, and near the town of Coboconk, another 40 kilometres north.
Bronte Road, the tree-lined street where the victim lived, was quiet yesterday except for the forensic investigators who were scouring the house next door, a home listed as belonging to Grant SYLVESTER since 1997. The best-selling author died in 1999.
His widow, Olga Mary, and son Daniel continued to live in the family home. The couple's other son, Robert, had moved to Mississauga.
Although Daniel SYLVESTER lived in the neighbourhood, he seems to have left little impression. Shown his photo, numerous local residents said they had never seen him. Two women who lived within 100 metres of the SYLVESTER home said working suburbanites invariably go from their car to their house, barely saying hello to any but the closest neighbours.
"I don't know the name of the person across the street," said Angela TORTI, who moved to the area 22 years ago when it was a new subdivision.
None of the neighbours lingering around the cordoned-off area claimed to have seen any of the SYLVESTERs much.
"Everybody today kind of goes their own way. When you have small children, you go out walking with them and you get to know your neighbours," Ms. REZMOVITZ said. "But once your kids are grown, often you don't know who your neighbours are."
Calls to the SYLVESTER home and to Robert's home, office and cottage were not answered.
Next door to the SYLVESTER residence, two posters with Ms. ROSS's photo were still taped to the back windows of an sport utility vehicle. A couple arrived to visit Ms. ROSS's family during the afternoon, but declined to comment afterward.
Around dinnertime, a police officer prevented a teenage girl from entering blocked-off Bronte Road. She left a plastic-wrapped bouquet at the barricade and lit a small candle.
Although some residents said they were shocked to hear that a neighbour had been arrested, they said they were nevertheless relieved.
"It's devastating to hear. It shows some degree of a conscience, turning himself in, but it's like humanizing a monster. This can't redeem him," said Marc FINKELSTEIN, who was jogging with his wife, Simone. "This has paralyzed the neighbourhood. It used to be such an active neighbourhood. It's nice to know all this is finally over."
Ms. TORTI said she had been unable to stop worrying about her daughter, who is living at home while studying at the University of Toronto.
"I don't go to sleep until she's in," she said. "She's 23, but honest to God, I don't go to sleep."
About 100 kilometres northeast of the neighbourhood, human remains that York Regional Police say likely belong to Ms. ROSS, were discovered.
Helicopters whirled overhead, police and Ontario Provincial Police tracker dogs scoured the bush and thick bull rushes over a wide area north and south of Highway 7. But the focal point of the search appeared to be just south of the town of Manilla bisected by Highway 7.
Near the intersection of Simcoe Street and the Seventh Concession, police tape surrounded a rectangle of thick, damp brush less than three metres from the roadside. Under a broiling sun, police with weed whackers cut thick grass and carried it to a York Regional Police forensic truck.
An officer said his colleagues had been there since early morning.
The seven-hectare (28-acre) property has been for sale since the beginning of the month, with an asking price of $139,900 and nobody was more surprised to see the flurry of activity than listing agent Audrey GRIFFIOEN.
"This is terrible, I can't believe it," she said, explaining that the property -- partly farm land and partly environmentally protected -- had recently had a conditional purchase offer.
"He's got to be a real sicko, the guy who did this," she said. "Killing is bad enough, but hacking up and spreading body parts all over the countryside.... I'll bet you he just stopped in his car and chucked it."
Also dismayed was 23-year-old Melissa NEWBERRY, whose parents own an 11-hectare (43-acre) parcel of dense brush just north of Highway 7, where more searching was under way.
"It's kind of scary," she said, recounting a recent incident in which she was jogging along the road. She said "some creepo in a yellow car," whom she described as a blond-haired man about 30 years old, appeared to be watching her.
She was advised to report the encounter to one of the numerous police officers in the area.

ROSS funeral service to be held on Friday
Canadian Press, Wednesday, October 5, 2005, Page A15
A funeral service for 25-year-old murder victim Alicia ROSS is set for Friday.
The young woman vanished from her Markham home in August, sparking a massive search. Her remains were found last month in the Ontario communities of Manilla and Coboconk.
Chief coroner Barry McLELLAN says forensic examination of Ms. ROSS's remains was completed yesterday, but no cause of death was released.

ROSS, Eila Hopper 2000 -- Died This Day
Tuesday, November 1, 2005, Page S9
Artist and writer born in Hamilton, Ontario, on November 5, 1913.
The daughter of a doctor, she at one time considered becoming one herself but, instead, enrolled at the Ontario College of Art in 1934. While a student there, she did a life-size oil painting of a model that was spotted by Maria WISHART, the director of the medical art service unit at the University of Toronto, who inspired her to take up a career as a medical artist. Eventually, after studying at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, she went on to become an associate professor at the University of Toronto and founder of the Art as Applied to Medicine Department at the Sunnybrook Medical Centre. Her illustrations appeared in textbooks and medical journals. In 1941, she married Dr. John ROSS and, in 1948, she took 12 years off to raise her family. She returned to work in 1960, joining the staff at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. In 1968, she moved to Sunnybrook, retiring in 1973. She also found time to write a historical novel, Cry to the Moment. After leaving Sunnybrook, she freelanced at the Hospital for Sick Children and painted Ontario landscapes. Her husband predeceased her by a week.

Const. Bill McCUTCHEON: Leader of the band
Police officer led host of parades
At 6-foot-4, he had the carriage of a warrior
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
For years he was the leader of the parade. Metro Toronto Police Pipe Band drum major Bill McCUTCHEON was at the head of the Santa Claus parades, Labour Day parades, Warrior Day parades, Grey Cup parades, the march past at the Police Games, the opening of the Royal Winter Fair and Kitchener-Waterloo's Oktoberfests.
At the annual Police Games held on summer nights at the Canadian National Exhibition, he led the march past; during the popular Musical Ride, the force's mounted unit did the charge straight at McCUTCHEON, standing two or three paces ahead of his band. The crowd always erupted as the horses stopped at what looked like just 10 metres before the man holding his ground with his mace held high.
He loved the spectacle more than they did.
Six-foot-4, he had the carriage of a warrior, the thrown-back head of a lion leading his pride whether he was leading the parade past the mayor of small town Ontario or Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at the storied Braemar Royal Highland Gathering of Scotland.
"He was a great big strapping fine-looking man," said Jocko THOMAS, the Star's legendary police reporter. "Millions saw him leading parades."
"He looked really sharp in front of the band," said former band piper John BREMNER. "He was a great guy to follow."
BREMNER and McCUTCHEON were young police officers in neighbouring downtown precincts when they signed up for a newly revived Metro Toronto Pipe and Drum Band in 1964. Originally started by Thomas ROSS in 1912, the marching band was disbanded in 1939, when Canada went to war. In a nod to its history and its original founder, the new police band chose the red Ross plaid as its official tartan.
Within months of joining, McCUTCHEON was elected drum major, responsible for not only leading the parade but also for the "dress, deportment and discipline," as BREMNER put it, of the 40 to 50 members.
"He was a stickler for punctuality," BREMNER remembered. "If Bill promised to be there at 2 p.m., we moved at 2 p.m."
McCUTCHEON retired from the band in 1975, when he retired from the police -- "we wished he could have stayed with us," said BREMNER -- but he kept marching at the head of the pack for the Ontario Royal Canadian Legion Pipes, Drums and Colours.
A year earlier, he had been asked to lead the Legion massed bands at Florida's New Year's Eve Rose Bowl parade, a huge honour at a time when the streets were painted white for the televised nighttime parade. He returned two more times: in 1976 and then in 1991.
In 1978, McCUTCHEON led the Ontario Royal Canadian Legion Pipes, Drums and Colours along the 10-kilometre route of the Tournament of Roses Parade, lined with 1.5 million cheering spectators in California. They made repeat appearances in 1981, 1989 (when McCUTCHEON had just undergone treatment for cancer of the colon six weeks before) and in 1994.
They marched the dusty main street of Tijuana, Mexico, and in the Cavalcade Parade down Princes St. in Edinburgh. They were cheered at the Punch Bowl and Hula Bowl in Hawaii. The first time they appeared at Braemar, they marched past the Duke of Fife because Queen Elizabeth was mourning the assassination of her uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, but on their third tour of Scotland in 1990, it was the royal couple on the stand.
A local newspaper photographer caught Prince Philip leaning forward and peering at McCUTCHEON's medals when he was presented to the pair.
"It was Bill's police service medal and police war veteran medal, that's what Philip was interested in knowing about," said McCUTCHEON's wife, Hilda.
But McCUTCHEON's favourite parade was always Toronto's Santa Claus Parade. No contest.
His daughters would be bursting with pride.
"We'd scream from the sidelines when we saw him," said Karen ZWARYCH. "He always looked straight ahead, but he always gave us a wink. We knew he knew we were there."
"I would say to all the people next to us 'That's my Dad,' " said Janice FATTORE.
Sometimes, if there was a break in a parade, Hilda McCUTCHEON would tell her daughters, "Bet that's your father."
He loved making an entrance, even though he insisted in a 1975 interview for a police magazine that he wasn't "the type of show-off who struts like a peacock."
McCUTCHEON had a cache of stories: the time the band was marching at the Greenwood Race Track and they turned left and he went straight ahead, or the times he missed the toss of the mace.
"It's the guys in the band who make it the hardest on you, like the piper who has threatened to buy me a baseball glove," he told the police magazine.
In his memoirs, McCUTCHEON described marching in Nathan Phillips Square to mark Police Week. He was doing "the walk" manoeuvre with his mace -- stabbing the ground to the left and right as he marched -- when the mace became embedded in a crack between the concrete slabs. He kept right on marching without his mace, then turned the startled band around and led them back where he retrieved the mace on his return.
During another Yonge St. Daffodil Day parade, the mace slipped out of his hand and bounced down the road. When he bent to retrieve it, his feather helmet fell off. The crowd gave him an ovation as he caught it.
The son of a streetcar driver, McCUTCHEON grew up in west Toronto. He always loved uniforms: he belonged to the Boys Brigade and, when he was 17, he lied about his age to enlist in the air force but never saw any overseas action, much to his disgust. A neighbour suggested he join the police. The neighbour was Jack ACKROYD who would go on to become Toronto's chief of police. He loved being a police officer, but it was when he joined the pipe band and later the policemen's chorus that he combined both his passions. Possessed of a spectacular rich bass voice, he had long sung at church minstrel shows and as a soloist in the choir at then Westmoreland United Church. During his 28 years with the force, he sang the national anthem at the Police Games and was the soloist at the annual police Remembrance Day ceremony at Yorkminster United Church.
He sang at both daughters' weddings and, always, around the house. Until last October, he sang with the Seranato Singers, a seniors singing group, stopping only because he was having trouble breathing. Having survived a bypass in 1978, colon cancer and an operation for an aneurism in 1998, he died January 20 at age 78 of melanoma.
At his funeral, members of the Toronto police chief's ceremonial unit were honorary guards and fellow police war veterans the pallbearers. A piper played behind the hearse and at the gravesite.
The family buried him with the mace he had carried for more than 40 years.
It was their way to ensure that he got to lead his last parade.

BUCHANAN, Frances Jean
One of too many lives claimed by cancer, she died on Tuesday, June 7, 2005 in North York General Hospital, in her 82nd year. She was born in Toronto on February 10, 1923 though her parents, James Leighton and Lula White ROSS were residents of Welland, Ontario which is where she grew up. She attended high school in Fenwick, Ontario, having moved to Wellandport, Ontario at that time. Her career was in the world of cosmetics and beauty consultants. She was employed at the Robert Simpson Company where she was a representative for such cosmetic companies as Elizabeth Arden, Estee Lauder, Clinique and others. She also did some modeling early in her career. She is survived by a sister and brother-in-law, Helen and John FISHER, 213 West Thomas Street, Rome, New York, two dearly loved nephews, Grant FISHER of Houston, Texas and Karl FISHER of Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts and several cousins including Evan and Lynda SOLYK of St. Catharines, Ontario. She will be sorely missed by many including a lifetime friend in Sioux Lookout, Ontario with whom she shared many memories beginning with their days in high school and close Friends now living in the Czech Republic. Interment will be in Overholt Cemetery, Port Colborne, Ontario at the convenience of the family. The family wishes at this time to publicly thank the Freeman Palliative Care Program at the hospital for the support and guidance provided to us. Because the family experienced firsthand the necessity of palliative care for families and patients coping with the heartbreak of caring for a loved one in the final phase of incurable cancer, we are suggesting that Friends who wish to send memorials make donations to The Freeman Centre for Palliative Care, North York General Hospital, 4001 Leslie Street, Toronto, Ontario, M2K 1E1.

Linda HACKETT, 56: 'Upbeat' volunteer
Even chemotherapy couldn't dull Linda HACKETT's appreciation of life
Her many Friends recall an indomitable spirit
By Catherine DUNPHY, Lifelines
Linda HACKETT was just one of 375 volunteers who deliver 30,000 copies of Beach Metro News community newspaper. She'd been distributing 80 copies throughout 59 Edgewood, the low-rise apartment building where she lived, since September, 2001 as reliable as rain.
The paper's general manager, Sheila BLINOFF, had no idea HACKETT was blind until one day last spring when she showed up at the office to have her picture taken for the paper with her new guide dog Ginny.
"She was always so upbeat," BLINOFF said. "She told me it was a good thing we were taking her picture that day when she had her hair because she was starting a new round of chemotherapy the next week."
It was not her first run-in with the disease. She beat back advanced skin cancer in 1980 by having skin and muscle removed from her shoulder, then fought breast cancer with a total mastectomy in March, 2003, followed by chemo and radiation later that year. When the cancer flared again the next summer, she signed on for more chemotherapy. But on May 25 she was told her cancer was back, and this time, it wouldn't be going away.
Nevertheless, two days later she attended the regular monthly seniors' lunch program run by Meals Here and There, where she announced it was Ginny's birthday, to great fanfare.
The next day she gamely went out in a borrowed wheelchair to the annual Beaches Triangle neighbourhood garage sale, where she scored a keyboard. She loved garage sales, but this purchase was a special find for her because the chemo she had been undergoing had left her fingers numb and she wanted to exercise them.
But that night -- May 28 -- she was felled by a massive stroke and hospitalized again. In mid-June the doctors told her she had three months to a year to live and would never walk again. She immediately demanded physiotherapy to prove them wrong even as she was admitted to Bridgepoint's palliative care ward. By July she was organizing a Yahoo group to co-ordinate her visitors.
When a young, inexperienced nurse confessed she didn't know what to do with a blind patient, HACKETT said to her: "We have a hug."
But she knew she was slipping away.
"Colleen, I don't want to die," she told her friend Colleen PEACOCK, who heads Meals Here and There, where HACKETT used to do volunteer office work.
HACKETT's husband, Craig NEWMAN, moved into her room to be with her in the last few weeks. He slept on a chair at nights, going home during the day only to care for Ginny.
"Linda was scared," he said. "I would be too, to be blind and not be able to see if a nurse went by, to ask for help. She would have done it for me."
She died September 22 at 56. Her death stunned her Friends. If anyone was going to beat cancer, they thought, it would be her. She kept telling them she would. "I'm a fighter," she'd say. "They (doctors) don't know me, I'm going to beat this."
Of course, a lot of courageous people dealing with a cancer diagnosis say words like that. But they aren't HACKETT, who'd had to fight for everything in her life, including being able to stay in her adopted homeland of Canada. Not only did she win that battle, she also exacted in the process a promise from a cabinet minister to change the law.
Fighting back, fighting hard, had been her credo, or maybe her mantra, certainly her modus operandi since she was 10 months old and had both her eyes removed when retinal blastoma robbed her of her eyesight.
She was a timid girl from La Jolla hanging around the University of California's Berkeley campus when Mike YALE first met her in 1968. He, too, was blind but, unlike her at the time, he was a firebrand. YALE was a journalist and activist involved in the free speech, anti-war movements who was visiting Berkeley after moving to Toronto and being accepted into law school.
"Lynn was shy. I don't think she had finished high school and didn't have a lot of prospects. She did a lot of babysitting then," YALE recalled.
Her abusive father had left when she was still a toddler; her mother was an invalid and she had been raised by protective grandparents. So he was shocked to find HACKETT on his Toronto doorstep six weeks later. They were together three years, during which time HACKETT got her first guide dog and they spent a year living and working a farm with sighted Friends.
They had broken up -- but remained good Friends -- when HACKETT got a letter from the immigration appeal board telling her she couldn't stay in Canada because she was an epileptic. YALE leapt into action, phoning 23 members of Parliament over one weekend at their homes or their offices. The late Alexander ROSS, who wrote a city column for this newspaper, also championed her cause.
"The Immigration Appeal Board has decided that Lynn HACKETT must be deported and it makes me ashamed of my country," he wrote in November, 1972.
"The maddening thing is," he wrote in the same column, "she was disqualified on grounds which even department officials agree are obsolete -- the prohibition against epilepsy, a condition which Lynn admits to, but which doesn't bother her."
When the smoke cleared, HACKETT was deported November 9, but allowed back into Canada 24 hours later on a special visa granted to her by then-Immigration Minister Bryce MacKASEY, who vowed to lift the immigration ban on epileptics during the next session of Parliament. "I made it. I'm really home," she told a Toronto Star reporter.
Then she proceeded to make quite a life for herself. After working for $75 a week doing telephone customer relations with the Capitol Record Club, she moved to A and M Records and then to a position as an overseas telephone operator with Bell. She took up bicycle riding with the Tandem Bicycle Club for fun, belonged to a ham radio club, made jewellery and loved camping. With Yale, she was involved in starting Blind Organization of Ontario with Self Help Tactics in 1975.
"The whole point of The Blind Organization of Ontario with Self Help Tactics was to educate blind people to stand on their own feet and fight for themselves," he said.
When she was laid off from Bell in 2000, she began volunteering. She helped sort shoes to be sent to Cuba for one charity and, in 2002, she brought her Braille writer to PEACOCK's office to take down phone messages. Soon she was reminding clients of the dinners and scheduling rides.
"She had it all organized on thick cardboard," PEACOCK said. "I was amazed. After a while I forgot she was blind."
She never missed the movie night at her church, Glen Rhodes United. The minister there, Susan THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, was thrilled when HACKETT brought Ginny to the Sunday school and agreed to read at a special Lent candlelight service called Service of Shadows.
"I called Lynn and dictated the reading to her, she wrote it down in Braille, learned it and that night, out of the shadows, light appeared and her beautiful voice filled the room," THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. "It was magical."
THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON led the funeral service and PEACOCK provided a final resting place for their friend in her family's plot in nearby Saint John's Cemetery. Donations for a marker can be sent to Susan. J. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, c/o Glen Rhodes United Church, 1470 Gerrard St. E., Toronto.
