AZIZ, Catherine Julia " Kitty"
Peacefully at London Health Sciences Centre, Victoria Hospital on Thursday, June 22, 2006. Catherine Julia "Kitty" AZIZ of London in her 90th year. Predeceased by her loving father and mother George and Freda AZIZ, her beloved sister Helen YARED, her brothers Russell and Ernest AZIZ, and her nieces Mariene KOURI and Elaine YARED. Dear aunt of Susan MASCIOTRA and her husband Alex of London and great-aunt of Gregory KOURI and his wife Jean Marie of Miami, Florida, Andrew KOURI and his wife Susan of Montreal, Québec and David MASCIOTRA and Stephanie MASCIOTRA, and many other nieces and nephews. Catherine "Kitty" was an exceptionally talented commercial artist. Renown for her life-like animal portraits, she was also commissioned in her early years to paint Roosevelt's beloved Scottie, "Falla", which is located in the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Library in Hyde Park, New York. Her special artistic works were produced similarly for Prime Minister Mackenzie King, Lord and Lady Alexander, and many others; and, of particular note, a Border Collie employed by the U.S. Army's K-9 Corps to deliver messages during the Second World War. A uniquely independent character, Kitty will be forever loved and missed by close family and Friends. Heartfelt thanks are extended to Doctor Isabel LI and the 6th Floor Palliative Care Team for their tremendous expertise and care. At Kitty's request a private family graveside service was held at Woodland Cemetery on Friday, June 23rd. (A. Millard George Funeral Home entrusted with the arrangements)

Artist known for dog paintings
By Ryan CUREATZ, Free Press Reporter, Mon., July 10, 2006
London artist Catherine (Kit) AZIZ linked her love of art and animals to paint the pooches of world leaders.
Her pastel portraits of Canadian wartime prime minister Mackenzie King's beloved Irish terrier, Pat I, and of U.S. wartime president Franklin D. Roosevelt's Scottish terrier, Fala, earned AZIZ acclaim at an early age, her niece said.
"She wanted a dog so badly when she was a child," Susan MASCIOTRA said.
"She started painting pictures of them."
Born in Saint Thomas, AZIZ lived in London most of her life before she died June 22 of cancer at 89, MASCIOTRA said.
AZIZ was a commercial artist who met with King in 1948 in Ottawa to give the prime minister a painting of his pooch, the first of three terriers he owned -- all named Pat -- and about whom he wrote in his diary almost every day the dog lived.
King, a devotee of the spiritual world, who held seances to contact the dead, including his mother, to confirm his instincts, once wrote that he believed Pat had been sent by his mother to offer him peace and comfort.
On the same trip AZIZ made to Ottawa to meet King, she gave a painting of Muldoon the Second, a Great Dane, to its owners -- Lord Alexander of Tunis, Canada's governor-general at the time, and his wife Lady Margaret.
"They loved their pets and (AZIZ) was aware of that," MASCIOTRA said. "She just presented herself to these people with the utmost grace."
When AZIZ handed Roosevelt's widow, Eleanor, the portrait of Fala at F.D.R.'s memorial library in Hyde Park, New York the same year, Fala licked the artist's hand.
"There were a lot of admirers of her work," MASCIOTRA said.
In other portraits of celebrity dogs, AZIZ depicted a border collie used by the U.S. army's K-9 Corps to send messages during the Second World War.
A German shepherd that worked as a seeing-eye dog and a perennial dog-show champion, the Great Dane Rudiki, were also captured in AZIZ's lifelike works crafted from photographs.
"She was just an incredible person who enjoyed all aspects of the visual arts," said her cousin, Philip AZIZ, also a prominent London artist.
Catherine AZIZ loved the opera and enjoyed dancing her fingers along piano and organ keys, MASCIOTRA said.
"(She was) just a fun-loving person when she socialized."
AZIZ once confessed she'd like to have a Kerry Blue terrier.
But her quiet, private life came with no children or dogs of her own, MASCIOTRA said.
"I don't want to become merely an imitator of someone who is recognized as a great artist," AZIZ told The Free Press 60 years ago.
"I want to be original, if I can, and I can achieve originality, I feel, only by working by myself."
