CASHORE, Catherine (1946-2006)
Passed away quietly on April 29, 2006 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Ms. CASHORE, born in Norristown, Pennsylvania, arrived in Canada in 1964 to matriculate at the University of Toronto, from which she earned three degrees. After University, she chose to remain in Toronto and to become a Canadian citizen. She had a long career in library service, most recently in the Medical Sciences Library at the University of Toronto. Catherine's life was rich in accomplishments and in a broad spectrum of interests. She was dedicated to many social causes, working tirelessly in the areas of refugee and labour rights. She was an avid swimmer and an enthusiastic supporter of Canadian figure skating. She traveled widely, particularly enjoying her trips by rail across Canada. She was an accomplished linguist, fluent in four languages. Her love of language drew her to the theatre. Her fascination with the plays of William Shakespeare prompted many visits to the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario. Her greatest joy, however, was Music. She was an active member of several choral groups and Opera companies in Toronto, and she spent many summers exploring a wide range of musical styles and practices at the Canadian Amateur Musicians' Camp in Lakefield, Ontario. Catherine will be greatly missed by her family: her mother, Madeline B. CASHORE, three brothers and their spouses: William J. and Pauline CASHORE, J. Michael and Nedda CASHORE, Thomas J. and Adaline CASHORE: and one sister, Mary C. WILLIHNGANZ, and her husband Walter. In addition, she is survived by three maternal aunts, one uncle, numerous nephews and nieces and one great nephew. After a life of love and of service to others here in Toronto, she leaves behind a wealth of good and cherished Friends. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 354 St Clair Avenue W, on Friday, May 5th, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. A viewing will be held at the Jerrett Funeral Home, 1141 St. Clair Avenue W, Toronto, at 11: 30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. prior to the funeral. All are invited to a gathering to celebrate Catherine's life which will take place in the Holy Rosary Church hall immediately after the funeral service. Interment will be with her family in the U.S. In lieu of flowers the family has requested that contributions be made to a memorial scholarship which will enable future students to attend summer music sessions at Canadian Amateur Musicians' Camp, Ontario. Contributions may be made at the Jerrett Funeral Home or directly to Canadian Amateur Musicians' Camp, Ontario. For information contact the office at: e-mail: ontario@cammac.ca or phone 1-866-273-7697.

CASHORE, Catherine -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Page M5
'She knew that time was precious," said Mary WILLIHNGANZ, Catherine CASHORE's sister. "She knew she had one year left, and she did what she loved."
For Ms. CASHORE, that meant dining out with Friends, going to Stratford and singing in the chorus of her favourite ensembles. Ms. CASHORE was born in 1946, in Pennsylvania, and came to Toronto at 18. After earning three degrees at the University of Toronto, she found a job in the university's library system.
Ms. CASHORE was very aware of the rights of the oppressed -- which Ms. WILLIHNGANZ said was taught them by their father, and she made several trips to Nicaragua in the 1980s.
"Looking around her apartment, I found one button after another from every human-rights cause you could ever espouse," her sister said. "She lived a life of simplicity, never covetous or jealous of the successes of others."
Ms. CASHORE died of cancer on April 29. Her funeral was held yesterday, with the family directing memorial donations to the Canadian Amateur Musicians' Camp in Lakefield, Ontario

WILLING, Max
In memory of Max, who passed away July 1, 2004.
This month comes with deep regret
It brings back days we cannot forget
You left us so suddenly with no goodbye
But memories of you will never die.
May the winds of love blow softly
And whisper so you will hear
That we will always love and miss you
And wish that you were here.
Always loved and remembered, wife Kathy, daughter Ella, and son Matt and family|

Victim's death stuns co-workers
'She was very nice. She always came in and did her job'
Police say body dumped in alley, woman killed elsewhere
By Steve RENNIE, Staff Reporter
Kori WILLIS took a long look at the photograph and placed a palm to his forehead.
"I can't believe it's her," he said.
The woman in the photograph was 20-year-old Yasmin ASHAREH, whose body was found in a bag last Friday at a housing complex across the street from the Food Basics grocery store on Martin Grove Rd. where she worked.
WILLIS, the store's assistant manager, was still visibly stunned moments after seeing ASHAREH's picture. He said ASHAREH had only worked at the store a few weeks, but was well liked by her co-workers. He recalls chatting with her during smoke breaks.
"She was very nice, very outspoken," he said. "She always came in and did her job."
Toronto police said ASHAREH died from multiple stab wounds to the neck. Her body was then thrown in a bag and left for days in an alley at the Martin Grove Estates, a housing project on John Garland Blvd., until trash collectors found it Friday.
Homicide Det. Wayne BANKS said the trash collectors moved the bag a short distance before noticing its weight and smell. They then called police to the housing complex.
At a news conference held yesterday at police headquarters on College Street, BANKS discounted earlier reports the body was dismembered. He said all the remains were intact and there were no missing limbs.
BANKS said ASHAREH had not been stabbed to death in the alley where her body was found, although the body had been there for "several" days. He said it wasn't unusual that the garbage, which is supposed to be picked up Tuesdays and Fridays, wasn't collected last Tuesday.
Those who knew ASHAREH were still trying yesterday to make sense of her slaying.
At a nearby housing co-op down the street, a man, who declined to give his name, said he spoke occasionally with ASHAREH while he shopped.
"Why would anyone want to kill her?" said the man. "Who would do something like that?"
BANKS did reveal that ASHAREH lived alone in a rented room near the complex where her body was found. He said police are trying to determine her whereabouts in the time leading to her murder, adding ASHAREH had not been reported missing. She had apparently lived in the area for "awhile," BANKS said.
He said ASHAREH was born in Canada, but her family is from Somalia. The detective said she has a brother, two sisters and a single mother.
BANKS said family, who live in Peel Region, is "devastated" by ASHAREH's death. Police are checking dental records to confirm ASHAREH's identity because family members "still don't want to come to grips that this is their daughter," BANKS said.
Police are investigating whether ASHAREH was in a relationship. BANKS said yesterday she had previously been in a relationship and police have already questioned that person.
"We're investigating every theory and we won't leave any stone unturned until we find the killer of this young lady," he said.
