ROSA, Annamaria Campiello
By Louisa ROSA and Greta DELONGHI, Page A20
Mother, grandmother, gardener, chorister. Born February 2, 1928, in Vicenza, Italy. Died May 17 of pulmonary fibrosis in Hamilton, Ontario, aged 78.
Anna Rosa spent her life looking for adventure and fun, even as life's forces bore down on her. When the bombs rained on her northern Italian town during the Second World War, Anna, then 14, ran on the tops of apartment buildings to watch.
She lived in a time of tyrants. She was made to parade down the streets of Vicenza with other children all wearing costumes in Mussolini's honour. And the force at home was her father, who was a gifted musician but egocentric and abusive toward his seven children, including the fourth child, Anna.
At the end of the war, Anna, now 17 and an office worker, met a former soldier working as a guard on a street in Vicenza. Luigi ROSA wooed Anna who, eager to get out from under her father's thumb, married him and moved to his mountain village. Their first daughter Florina was born in 1947; they emigrated to Hamilton, Ontario, where Stelco was hiring. Their son Lino was born in 1950 and then Louisa in 1954. Anna loved to dance and on the dance floor she and Luigi looked the perfect couple. But Anna soon found she had married a broken man; an alcoholic. Although theirs was a volatile, combative relationship, Anna nursed her husband through cancer until he died in 1980.
Although married life was difficult, Anna still expressed her generous spirit. She grew beautiful flower gardens and cooked extraordinary meals of gnocchi, oxtail stew, polenta, risotto and, on Sundays, her famous chicken noodle soup. A talented seamstress like her mother Adelaide, Anna made her children clothes, using Vogue patterns as they got older. She often did their household chores so they could do their homework. She took pride in their accomplishments, and in those of her nine grandchildren.
But it was during her 26 years as a widow that Anna really found her wings -- and roots. As president of a local club of Vicentini (those from Vicenza), Anna flew to Italy for conferences. She travelled south, once to Guatemala on a church mission, and most years between January and April to the warmth of Mexico.
When she was at home her phone rang constantly. She sang with her church choir and a small choral group. She loved music, especially operas such as La Boheme and La Traviata. She still loved to dance, searching out men who could tango properly. It was while dancing six years ago that she felt short of breath, with her heart racing. When she was finally diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive hardening of the lung tissue, her lungs were functioning at only half their capacity.
But she continued to sing for four years until she could no longer climb the stairs to the church choir loft. Although travelling less meant regular Sunday dinners with family, she chafed against her physical restrictions. On a European cruise with her daughters three years ago, she refused an oxygen device and could hardly leave her cabin. But she did get ashore on the Greek island of Mykonos and raved about her meal of moussaka.
She spent most of last January to May bedridden and on oxygen, and on the Tuesday after Mother's Day she told Florina, "It's time to go to the hospital." She saw family at the hospital that day and died during the night.
Her children recently cleaned out her home, but her son-in-law Tim couldn't bear to throw out one of her old pots. It no longer worked as a pressure cooker and the handle was loose, but Anna had made the best polenta in it. So much so good came out of such brokenness.
Louisa is Anna's youngest child, and Greta is Louisa's friend.

ROSCHAR o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-03-10 published
ROSCHAR, Josef
By Lisa MONTESI and Danielle SCHRAGE, Page A18
Artist, husband, friend, father, grandfather. Born December 2, 1943, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Died September 4, 2005, at Stony Lake, Ontario, of pancreatic cancer, aged 61.
Many years ago, I asked Josef to make me a pair of candlesticks for my birthday. In a departure from his elegant ceramic vessels, he succumbed to my request and made a very funky set. On the underside he inscribed, "To Lisa, to remind her that Life is joy."
Josef embodied that joy. He was a shining light and those of us who had the good fortune to catch it sure knew what we had.
Josef ROSCHAR was a ceramic artist of international repute. He exhibited worldwide and his work is featured in numerous collections. He had two exhibits at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, the city where he made his home for more than 20 years. His work in clay and metal was stunning; both elegant and innovative. He was fearless when it came to trying something new, his latest creation always a surprise.
Born in Amsterdam, Josef arrived in Toronto in the late 1970s. There, he met his wife, fellow artist Judith MYERS. It was the scheming of Judith's teenage daughter Danielle and her friend's mom, Debbie, that brought Josef and Judith together. It was on a beautiful July afternoon at Debbie's pool when Josef announced he was going for a swim. He threw off all his clothes and jumped into the pool. Judith followed suit. From that moment onward they were inseparable. Hearing that story, anyone knowing Josef couldn't help but grin, because "free spirit" was really the essence of his personality. He believed firmly in living your dreams and not settling for anything less.
Shortly after that meeting, Josef returned to Amsterdam, and Judith followed. They set up a small ceramics studio/gallery together.
The two became that rare couple who are able to work and live together in harmony. In the late 1980s, they returned to Toronto and opened a gallery on Avenue Road where they worked and exhibited. While Josef threw on the wheel, there were always visitors dropping by to sit and talk. It wasn't just the art they were drawn to, but the artist. Josef knew how to listen and he made you feel so at ease. He was straightforward, without being harsh. He could be playful, but mindful. More than one person has said that Josef helped change their lives, and they meant it. He was interested if you were.
In the late 1990s Judith and Joseph moved to the Kawartha Lakes area of Ontario, on scenic Stony Lake. There, they found an amazing community of Friends, many of whom were artists themselves.
The loyalty and respect that Josef had earned from the many Friends he cherished became ever so clear when he became ill. In August, an art auction was organized in his honour. His brother-in-law, Simon, the driving force of this event, set out to create a tribute and a means to support Josef. Donations of work were made by more than 40 artists. And on a glorious August afternoon, 400 people gathered to create a most memorable event. It spoke to the way Josef had touched people.
When the doctors urged him check into the hospital, Josef made it very clear that if he was going to die, it would be on his terms -- he would remain in his home overlooking the lake, surrounded by incredible beauty.
He spent his summer soaking up the glorious rays and driving his boat.
Known to zoom along the lake, he didn't allow his illness to stop him. However, when it prevented him from moving at his usual speed, he discovered that "although he had always loved to go fast, everything looked even more beautiful when he went slow." As the summer came to a close, Josef passed away at his home.
Lisa and Danielle are Josef's stepdaughters.

ROSE, Jack
The children of Jack ROSE (Loree, Jeffrey and Valerie) are saddened to tell you our dad died at The Weinberg Residence on May 19th 2006 in Vancouver. son of Jean and Ben ROSE, beloved husband of Shirley ROSE (died October 2005,) father in law to Paul and Terry, brother of Doreen, brother in law to Betty. Born and raised in Vancouver Jack excelled in gymnastics and diving. In his teens he was part of a circus act. And he dove off the old Cambie Bridge with 2 Friends. He bought his first bicycle from Woodward's for $1 and delivered telegrams downtown earning 3 cents each. In April 1940 he enlisted and became a signalman in the Royal Canadian Corp of Signals and was in one of two Canadian battalions chosen to go to Hong Kong - the Winnipeg Grenadiers and the Royal Rifles of Canada. Jack spent 4 years as a Prisoner of War in Hong Kong and Japan working at North Point, Tsurami, and Sendai. He learned to speak Japanese fluently. He struggled with "fitting in" for many years after his release on August 30, 1945. In 1985, the call for redress from Japanese Canadians caught his attention. He felt an affinity with their cause, his sense of fairness took hold and he pledged his support. He broke ranks from the other PoW's. He was committed to fight racism in order to make Canada a better country. Dad did not allow his years as a prisoner of war to blind him to what was right. To us, he has served as an inspiring example of courage, magnanimity and integrity. To us, it is hard to let go of him. We will miss his warmth, his humour and his loveable habit of laughing at his own jokes. A heartfelt thanks to Dad's companions Meritus and Vilma. To the staff at Weinberg for your kindness, care and for creating a home for Dad. Special thanks to Doctor Paul MALON for his honesty and guidance. To the Acute Care for Elders Unit at Vancouver General Hospital and the staff in Ward 2B/ University of British Columbia Hospital for treating Dad with respect and dignity. To Veteran's Affairs for supporting and being concerned about Dad from the time his feet hit Canadian soil. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Vancouver Young Men's Christian Association, the Weinberg Residence or a charity of your choice. Thank you.

DOBBIN, Craig Laurence, O.C.
Craig Laurence DOBBIN, O.C., husband, father, grandfather, dear friend, entrepreneur, philanthropist, chairman, founder of the world's largest helicopter corporation and one of Newfoundland and Labrador's proudest sons. Surrounded by his beloved wife, confidante and best friend Elaine, his five children, and his brothers and sisters, at home looking out over the rugged Atlantic Ocean in Beachy Cove, Newfoundland, he presided gracefully and courageously over his final covenant and entered into the arms of the angels at age 71 on October 7, 2006. Craig DOBBIN was born in Saint_John's, Newfoundland on Friday, September 13, 1935, one of 11 children to Rita (POWER) and Patrick. He grew up on King's Bridge Road, a working class neighbourhood. He graduated from St. Bonaventure College in Saint_John's and went on to become one of the global aviation industry's most successful figures. He provided opportunity, support and inspiration to thousands through his businesses, his philanthropy and most importantly through his charming, larger than life, magnanimous character. A fearless buccaneer in the business world, Craig was guided by integrity, honesty and loyalty, and dove passionately into every task he undertook. He sprinkled his many speeches with concise, memorable axioms, including his three favorites: 'Never take no for an answer,' 'Turn adversity into opportunity,' and, his favorite in recent years, 'Time is the enemy.' From his base in Newfoundland, he founded Sealand Helicopters with one aircraft in 1977 and launched CHC Helicopter Corporation in 1987, building the enterprise into the largest helicopter services company in the world through timely acquisitions, strategic decisions and the support of many dedicated, loyal employees. He visited many of the 35 countries in which CHC operates, served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and later as Executive Chairman, and delivered his final speech to shareholders with his usual wit and charm, and to lengthy applause, on September 28, 2006 in Vancouver. Craig founded Omega Investments, a Newfoundland real estate company that, combined with his reputation and integrity, provided the leverage and collateral for many of his subsequent ventures. He founded Air Atlantic, a regional fixed-wing airline when the Open Skies Treaty was signed in 1989; created Vector Aerospace through a public offering; built Canadian Helicopters and created CHC Composites Limited. With every success, he was quick to point to his team, describing himself as a casting director rather than a master at business. He recognized talent and had a knack of making every individual feel important and his fellow employees were like family to him. Craig strongly believed in giving back to the community and did so with passion. In the giving of his time and talents, he never looked for recognition, but received it nevertheless for his outstanding generosity, support and encouragement. He was inducted as an Officer of the Order of Canada - which he considered to be his greatest honour he received honorary degrees from Memorial University of Newfoundland, the National University of Ireland and Saint Mary's University in Halifax. He was the Provincial and National Transportation Person of the Year; was awarded the Medaille de l'aeronatique from the Government of France established to reward the individuals who distinguished themselves in the development of aviation was inducted into the Newfoundland and Labrador Business Hall of Fame; was Atlantic Canada's Entrepreneur of the Year and was voted Newfoundland and Labrador's Businessman of the Millennium. Just this past week, Craig received notification that he was to be inducted into Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame in June 2007 for his lifetime of work and achievement in the aviation industry. He was a fiercely proud Newfoundlander, a loyal Canadian and honoured citizen of the Republic of Ireland. Craig served as Honourary Consul General of Ireland for Newfoundland and Labrador and was Chairman of the Ireland-Canada University Foundation in Dublin. Equally at ease with presidents, princes and those less fortunate, he supported, sometimes anonymously, many causes. He endowed the Robert M. Kotloff/Nancy P. Blumenthal Professorship for Advanced Lung Disease at the University of Pennsylvania and served as Honourary Chairman and Patron for various non-profit organizations including the Lung Association of Newfoundland and Labrador; Newfoundland Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation The Janeway Children's Hospital Foundation; The Health Care Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador; Memorial University and others. He was named Outstanding Individual Philanthropist by the Canadian Society of Fundraising Executives. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by thousands. Leaving to mourn his wife, Elaine; daughters Joanne (Brian SEARS;) Carolyn; sons Mark (Sandra) Craig (Lisa); David (Penny); and their mother Eleanor. Step-children Kellee CARTER (Jason); Scott PARSONS (Karen); Robin PARSONS (Callie). Grandchildren Isobel DOBBIN- SEARS; Tim ROSE; Christine ROSE Kelly ROSE; Sally HOLLOWAY; Jane HOLLOWAY; Eleanor HOLLOWAY Megan DOBBIN; Maria DOBBIN; Michael DOBBIN; Zachary DOBBIN; Jake DOBBIN; Gillian DOBBIN; Heather DOBBIN; Jayne CARTER; Kate CARTER Lily PARSONS; Hilary PARSONS; Sisters Maureen (Dr. Justin MacCARTHY) Marion (Dr. Walter TUCKER); Rita (Edwin DODGE), Margo (William STINSON); Brothers Basil, Dermot (Cyndi); Barney (Elizabeth) sister-in-law, Joan DOBBIN. A large number of nieces, nephews, dear Friends and employees. At Craig's request, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal period of visitation.

Slain Thunder Bay soldier named
Pte. Josh KLUKIE stepped on a booby trap Friday
By Lauren LA ROSE, Canadian Press
The identity of a soldier from Thunder Bay killed in Afghanistan was revealed yesterday at the end of one of the deadliest months in decades for Canadian troops.
Pte. Josh KLUKIE was on foot patrol Friday when he stepped on an insurgent's explosive booby trap in the Panjwaii district west of Kandahar City. A military official said Friday the explosive was big enough to be an anti-tank mine.
KLUKIE was the 10th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan in September, and the 37th since 2002. His death came the same day funerals were held in Canada for three soldiers killed September 18 by a suicide bomber.
A woman answering the phone at the KLUKIE family home in Thunder Bay said yesterday that the family had no comment.
Officials were trying to organize a news conference where a family spokesperson would likely speak to the media.
In a statement issued yesterday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered his condolences to KLUKIE's family and Friends. "I commend Pte. KLUKIE's commitment and bravery in serving his country," Harper said. "He gave his life so that the Afghan people could experience the same freedoms and civil rights that we in Canada cherish and value.
"Canadians will not forget the dedication and courage he demonstrated. We are proud of him, and humbled by his willingness to serve Canada."
KLUKIE was a member of First Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, based at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, northwest of Ottawa.
Greg EBY, identified by his father as a friend of the fallen soldier, left a message on the Department of National Defence's message board September 6 telling troops he was "tremendously proud" of them.
"I'd like to say hi especially to Josh KLUKIE from Thunder Bay. You guys and gals and your families are in my prayers every day," the message stated.
Cpl. James MILLER of Hamilton suffered from deafness in his left ear and a possible concussion in the attack. MILLER's unit was also hit by a car bomb a couple of weeks ago.
Officials believe the bomb that killed KLUKIE had been planted recently.
Several soldiers had walked past the bomb before the private triggered it. Wide spacing between the soldiers on the foot patrol prevented more carnage, said Col. Fred LEWIS, deputy commander of the Canadian contingent.
