WILMOT, Elizabeth Gurley (née DURSO)
Slipped away peacefully on November 20th, 2007 in the arms of her cherished and devoted daughters, Gayle (wife of Kim DAVIDSON) and Kimberly, after a long and accomplished life lived with strength, courage, tenacity, integrity, compassion and generosity. A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a proud graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, Gurley was the oldest child of Eva and Mike DURSO. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Frederick T. WILMOT and by her siblings Genevieve, Eugene and Richard. She is survived by her sister Audrey KING (Dr. Robert L. KING), numerous nieces and nephews and by her three wonderful grandchildren, Kirby, Lisa and Chili DAVIDSON, whom she adored and who brought her unending pride, joy and comfort. After an impressive and fulfilling career as a professional dietician in Pittsburgh and later in Atlanta, Gurley devoted her energies enthusiastically to full-time motherhood and community volunteerism. When Fred died suddenly in 1973, leaving her a single mother of two teenagers, she rose bravely to the challenge of raising them emotionally and financially to maturity and independence. Their achievements and happiness are a testament to her success. Gayle and Kimberly wish to express their profound gratitude to our angel and personal caregiver, Juanita Mallari, who helped us to maintain Gurley's quality of life after her strokes in 2003. Many thanks also to Gurley's very loyal Friends who made her days more pleasant by visiting her regularly. Lastly, thanks to Virginia Clark Weir of the Freeman Centre for Palliative Care, whose professionalism and compassion helped to ease Gurley's final days. Gurley was fond of saying that she had lived her life like chapters in a book. Now that the final page has been written and the back cover closed, we can all only be grateful for having been a part of such a wonderful story. We shall miss her love, wisdom, guidance and her warm, sweet smile. At Gurley's request, there will be no visitation, funeral or memorial service. For those who wish to commemorate Gurley's life and it's conclusion in a way that would have pleased her, donations would be preferred in lieu of flowers, and may be made to The Aphasia Institute, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society, or the Freeman Centre for Palliative Care at North York General Hospital. Condolences may be sent to www.etouch.ca. Arrangements have been entrusted to The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre (416) 441-1580.

WILSON, James
In loving memory of James WILSON, who passed away October 24, 2003, loving husband, father and grandfather.
You can shed a tear that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he has lived
You can close your eyes and see all that he left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him.
Or your heart can be full of love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what he wanted, smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
- Always in our hearts, Jean, Dwayne, Susie, Shannon and Justin

Boy, 4, found dead in burning garage
By Canadian Press, Wed., June 13, 2007
Adjala-Tosorontio Township -- A four-year-old boy who became trapped in a burning garage has died near Alliston.
The Fire Marshal's office is investigating, but says it's too early to determine the cause of the fire and the boy's death.
When police arrived in Adjala-Tosorontio Township, two volunteer firemen -- a father and son -- were pulling the body of young Brian WILSON out of the garage.
The child was rushed to hospital in nearby Alliston, just 15 minutes away, but couldn't be revived.
The boy's mother and her boyfriend were on the property.

Mother 'distraught' over daughter's death
By Canadian Press, Thurs., December 27, 2007
Cannington -- The mother at the wheel of the pickup truck that careened into an icy pond Christmas Eve, drowning her eight-year-old daughter, was closeted with family and Friends, trying to come to grips with the tragedy.
Brittany WILSON was trapped inside the family's Ford pickup after her mother, Nicky, lost control along a "very icy" country road, just west of Cannington, about two hours northeast of Toronto.
Motorists who saw the truck flip over and land in the pond pulled the mother from the partly submerged vehicle, but couldn't rescue her girl.
Nicky, 28, her husband Jason, and their other child Brayden, 5, spent last night with family and Friends in a small apartment in Lindsay.
A reporter who talked to family members at the door could see the petite mother, her eyes red-rimmed from crying, pacing inside and repeating the words, "my baby, my baby. What will I do without my baby?"
Nicky was "distraught" and just trying to get through the night, said her mother-in-law Donna WILSON.
She said Nicky, shaking and inconsolable, kept repeating, "Nobody can imagine how we're feeling."
WILSON said the entire family was grieving the loss of a little girl who was "an angel from heaven. She was always wanting to help people."
"We're just trying to help each other," WILSON said.
"Her parents are coping the best they can. It's a tragedy."
Regional Rd. 12, a dark country road, was like a skating rink Christmas Eve, police said.
The truck slid sideways off the road, rolled on its roof and landed in an ice-covered pond.

She was a Toronto softball slugger who starred in a league of her own
Gifted infielder, endowed with glamour and a smattering of experience on stage, became a key player for the Chicago Chicks of the National Girls Baseball League
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Victoria -- Peggy WILSON's hitting prowess made her a terror on Toronto's softball sandlots. At age 16, the slugging infielder helped lead her team to the finals of the 1945 world softball championships and went on to play professionally in the United States.
At a time when women had few opportunities to earn pay for their athletic skills, she won a roster spot as two competing leagues battled for supremacy in the American Midwest. As it turned out, television killed attendance at minor-league sporting events and those few jobs for professional female athletes all but disappeared.
The infielder brought an athletic grace and a certain glamour to the diamond. Her flowing hair, full lips and deep-set eyes could just as easily have won her a spot on a Hollywood backlot as on a softball sandlot.
Though fortunate to be an athletic pioneer, she would suffer more than her share of heartbreak and tragedy.
Margaret Merla Eleanor WILSON was born in Toronto to a father who was an engineer and a sergeant in the Grenadier Guards. Francis Cyril (Frank) WILSON married Dorothy (Dolly) Catherine WATSON five days before Valentine's Day in 1928. Their daughter arrived 11 months later. Mr. WILSON led an apparent life of propriety for many years before suddenly abandoning the family. In seeking financial support, his wife took him to court, where, to her surprise, he was exposed as a bigamist. Their marriage licence was entered into proceedings under the tag "Exhibit A."
Dolly WILSON was the oldest of 10 children. The boys worked for the family business, Watson Movers, out of the family home at 281 Rhodes Ave., while the girls worked on stage, though the traditional theatre was not their milieu. The Watson Sisters crisscrossed the continent in the 1920s with such travelling revues as Plunkett Productions. Dolly was also an acclaimed snake dancer. By age 10, Peggy WILSON was accompanying her mother onstage as a bongo player.
The public performances perhaps made it easier for her to handle the pressure of playing softball as a young girl. Her photograph appeared in a Toronto newspaper in 1941, when the 12-year-old led her team to a championship in a league for under-18 girls. She played for Areadians of the Danforth league and Malverns of the Beaches league, often at the old Sunnyside stadium near Broadview Avenue and Queen Street. She was a star by age 14 playing against older women as a second baseman for the Staffords.
While mature on the diamond, she possessed an innocence away from it. Globe sports columnist Bobbie ROSENFELD recounted an incident when riding a bus back from a game at Malton, Ontario, when young Peggy engaged a gentleman beside her in conversation.
"Are you interested in softball?" the girl asked.
"Oh, yes, quite a bit," he replied.
"Do you go to Sunnyside often?"
"Yes, every night."
"Why? Are you connected with any team?"
"Yes, in a way," Ed BEWLEY said. "I happen to be the league president."
In the spring of 1945, she joined the Crofton Athletic Club. The powerhouse team boasted Alma WILSON (no relation) as an ace pitcher known as the Crofton Comet. The team dominated all comers in the Olympic girls' softball league, an amateur circuit based in Toronto.
In one game at Sunnyside, the Croftons embarrassed the Fuels 22-5, with Alma WILSON getting the win and Peggy WILSON banging a double and a home run.
After disposing of local challengers, the Croftons travelled to Cleveland for a world championship tournament. They downed the dogged Utah Lassies 5-2, slipped past the Gastonia (N.C.) Rex Hanovers 1-0 and then shut out a team from Stamford, Connecticut., 2-0. The victories earned a berth in the finals against a favoured New Orleans team.
The Jax Maids were led by Nina (Tiger) Korgan, a Nebraskan known as the Babe Didrikson of softball. She surrendered just two singles to the Toronto batters, as the Maids won 5-0 to claim their third world title in four years.
The Croftons' exposure in the United States caught the attention of scouts from competing leagues of women baseball players. A bird dog from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League - a circuit portrayed in the 1992 Hollywood movie A League of Their Own - came to Toronto armed with professional contracts. Instead, Peggy WILSON and the pitcher Alma WILSON ended up signing with the Chicago Chicks of the rival National Girls Baseball League.
The Chicago-based loop maintained softball's shorter base paths and underhanded pitching, even while playing with a smaller ball than a regulation softball. (The All-American league adopted baseball rules for a circuit based in mid-sized Midwestern cities.)
The novelty of pro female athletes attracted good crowds in the years following the end of the Second World War. A photo of Peggy WILSON appeared in one publication with the headline: "Snappy flysnatchers and shapely eye-catchers, gal softballers draw fans."
The infielder returned to Toronto at the end of the season, later playing for the Sherrins of the East Toronto league. After marrying a tool-and-dye man named George JOHNSTONE, the local daily newspapers began carrying accounts of a now-veteran player named Peggy JOHNSTONE.
In 1952, she moved to Bayview, New York outside Rochester, where she earned $125 a week to play for a team called Van's TNT Girls. The coach was Roy Van Graflan, a former umpire who was behind the plate when Babe Ruth made his famous "called shot" gesture in the 1932 World Series.
The coach was an expert at spotting female sporting talent. His own baseball career began as a pitcher on a team known as the Van Graflans, which featured his seven brothers and father. In the baseball off-season, the moonlighting umpire coached women's basketball teams, with his barnstorming Filaret side winning 553 games of 565 played from 1933 through 1949.
In July, 1953, the TNT Girls came to Toronto to play a televised exhibition against Mrs. JOHNSTONE's old rivals, the Gartens of the East Toronto league. On his way to the ball park, the car in which the coach was a passenger rear-ended a truck on Gerrard Street. The coach's head cracked the windshield, yet he refused to be taken to hospital. He managed just two innings at the game before calling it a night. He was driven home to Rochester and died some weeks later. He was 59.
Sadly, the unexpected death of a beloved coach in an automobile accident was but one of several tragedies to be endured by Peggy WILSON. Her aunt, Eleanor (WATSON) HENDERSON, a circus trouper, was killed with four others in a fiery collision on the Trans-Canada Highway outside Hearst, Ontario A son, aged 16, was killed by a drunk driver. She would also outlive two husbands, including one who died of a brain tumour only a few years after they married.
After hanging up her glove and cleats, she lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, spending more than 30 years aiding the ladies auxiliary of a fraternal organization. She rarely spoke of her time on the diamond, although her obvious talent at the plate - on display during pickup games at family picnics - never failed to surprise male observers.

Marion is sadly missed and proudly remembered by her sons and daughters-in-law John and Susanne WILSON and Douglas and Susan WILSON, by her granddaughters and their partners Erin WILSON and Rick ANDREWS and Sarah WILSON and Ken MERCER, along with her extended family and the many Friends whose lives she touched over 94 years. Marion and husband John (the late Dr. W.J. WILSON) shared a long and rich journey encompassing the uncertainties and separation of World War 2, the busy and rewarding life of a medical family and, throughout it all, a complete devotion to one another. Marion began painting in the 1970's, both in oils and in watercolours, and has left the family a tangible and treasured legacy of her creative spirit. In recent years Marion and John remained active and enthusiastic members of the Uxbridge community enjoying golf, Friends and community activities. Marion was always inspired and sustained by what she loved the most -- her family, her Friends, her painting and her many memories of a life well-lived. Marion's family, Friends and community will celebrate that wonderful life with a memorial gathering at the Low and Low Uxbridge Chapel, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge, Ontario (905 852-3073) to be held on October 27th at 1: 30 p.m. The family would like to extend special thanks to Laurie MOUNTFORD, and the staff of Country Home Care for their gentle care and Friendship in what became Marion's beautiful second home. Instead of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation or a charity of choice.

WILSON, Donald Cameron, Wing Commander, D.F.C. (retired)
Peacefully, and courageously, in Ottawa, on Monday, October 15, 2007, at the age of 87. Dearly beloved husband of Nalda (nee HENDRICK) for more than 63 years. Cherished and devoted father of Leslie (Bob), Dana (Robert) and Fraser (Jane). Loving grandpa of Kristen (Chris), Rob, Brad, Megan and Lauren and great-grandpa of Ryan and Vanessa.
Donald retired from a challenging and rewarding career in the Royal Canadian Air Force, following which he joined the Department of Supply and Services. He retired from Department of Supply and Services in 1984.
Few things were more special to "The Donald" than the days he spent at the family cottage on Lac Réaume, sailing, water skiing, sitting on the dock with a cool drink, or stoking the fire on those crisp, early mornings. Don's top priority in the spring was that his son, or one of his grand_sons, raised his beautiful Royal Canadian Air Force Ensign to fly proudly on the beach. This tradition will continue for Don's spirit which, we know, is already there.
Slanzh'va, Donald -- meet you at the cottage!
The family would like to offer a very special and sincere thank you to all the staff of the Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre, Ottawa for their loving care and support of Donald during his stay with them.
A private family service will be held in celebration of Donald's life.
For those wishing, donations in his memory may be made to the Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre, Ottawa.

WILSON, John Reginald " Reg"
Rauni's 'Big Boy' slipped away quietly late Monday night at Mount Sinai Hospital. It was the way Reg would have wanted. No fuss. No bother. No unnecessary sadness. Born January 13, l919 in Tilbury, Ontario, Reg was shy of his 89th birthday. There were no surprises in store for that celebration because he would have hated that. What would have been there is the beautiful love he inspired in all around him. His special love of 20 years, Rauni GILLESPIE was always at his side. Their life together was one of enjoyment and shared experiences. Theatre, walks, Friends and travel (Australia, Turkey, Caribbean… you name it). They were a handsome couple. From Tilbury Reg moved to Saint Mary's where he was raised by an aunt and uncle and savoured the life of one of Canada's special small towns. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1940 and served overseas returning in 1944. After moving to Windsor in 1947 he began his long and admirable career with Seagram's. He soon became V.P. and sales manager, ultimately advancing to Toronto to the position of District Sales Manager of Calvert Distillers. His Windsor Friends will remember him as one of the city's most active and dedicated citizens. The Windsor Jaycees, AKO fraternity, the Windsor Kiwanis Club, Ad and Sales Club, Branch 94 of the Royal Canadian Legion and Beachgrove Golf Club all benefited and were served by his energy and loyalty. Married to the former Jean CLARK, they had two children, Richard (Gloria SMITH) and Barbara (Terry O'MALLEY) to whom he was devoted. After his wife's death Reg continued his residence in Toronto. Reg is survived by Ms. GILLESPIE, his children and half-brother Alexander WILSON (Georgina) and a large array of Friends gained through his passion for curling, tennis, bridge and 45 years at his alternate home St. George's Golf Club. His presence is gone but his memory will be with us forever. His was a wonderful life. And as he would say 'I love you, too'. A funeral service will be held at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Friday, November 30 at 12 noon. Private internment will be held Friday, November 30.

Troubled relationship ends in tragedy
Domestic dispute on Christmas Day leaves two dead in Rexdale apartment
By Kenyon WALLACE and Dakshana BASCARAMURTY, Page A12
Iliada ZOIS dreamed of one day seeing her face on more than just the cover of Wal-Mart Canada's World magazine.
The 22-year-old Toronto resident, who imagined becoming an actor and model, instead spent her last few weeks working two full-time retail jobs and confiding in co-workers and Friends about a difficult five-year relationship with her boyfriend.
Ms. ZOIS and a 14-year-old boy were found dead in the woman's Rexdale high-rise apartment after a Christmas Day domestic dispute that turned violent, police said yesterday.
Detective Sergeant Gary GRINTON of the Toronto police homicide squad said the bodies of the two victims weren't discovered until Wednesday night, when a 16-year-old man suffering from knife wounds walked into the 23 Division police station just a few blocks from the high-rise, and led officers to Apartment 217 at Beacon Hill Towers on 2737 Kipling Ave., just north of Finch Avenue West.
"This was a domestic situation that went really bad," Det. Sgt. GRINTON said. "It was one of the nastier ones I've seen… in the 30 years I've been on the job."
Yesterday, police arrested 27-year-old Nana YAW, whom they identified as Ms. ZOIS's common-law partner, and charged him with two counts of second-degree murder. He was also charged with one count each of attempted murder and forcible confinement.
Det. Sgt. GRINTON said Mr. YAW called police from a phone booth near Steeles and Kipling Avenues at about 6 a.m. yesterday and turned himself in. The man underwent surgery for non-life-threatening knife wounds at a Toronto hospital, but Det. Sgt. GRINTON would not say if they were related to the Christmas Day dispute. Police said the two teens were relatives of Ms. ZOIS.
It was no secret to Ms. ZOIS's Friends, co-workers and a neighbour that the woman was in a troubled relationship.
"I knew she was having problems with her boyfriend but I had no idea it was this bad," said a woman who worked with Ms. ZOIS at Fairview Mall's La Senza Girl, and asked that her name not be used.
Darren CEDAR, a man who claims to have had a 10-year online Friendship with Ms. ZOIS, said the woman told him she was scared of her boyfriend and had recently been looking to move out of their shared apartment.
Ingrid WILSON, whose apartment is on the same floor as Ms. ZOIS's, said she frequently encountered the couple in the hallway after they moved in more than a year ago.
"They seemed okay together," she said. "No jealousy."
But recently it seemed trouble was brewing between them, she said, adding that for two weeks she had heard yelling coming from the apartment late at night and early in the morning.
"On the weekends I usually heard lots of fighting on that side. Lots of noise - loud," Ms. WILSON said.
Shiva TAGHANI, who had worked with Ms. ZOIS at La Senza Girl for more than four years, said the woman was "a very hard worker" who spent 100 hours a week at two jobs. Ms. ZOIS also worked at a west-end Wal-Mart.
Ms. ZOIS's profile on the social-networking website Facebook proudly displays a scan of herself on the cover of Wal-Mart Canada's in-house magazine, as well as many self-taken glamour shots and an application where other users can rate her "hotness."
"She always wanted to do more with her life and always wanted to be famous," said Cheyenne KIRBY, who attended Wilfrid Laurier Collegiate Institute with Ms. ZOIS. She said Ms. ZOIS, who had also studied child psychology at Centennial College, had dreamed of becoming a model or an actress.
Yesterday afternoon, Toronto police officers guarded Ms. ZOIS's apartment, which was still a crime scene. With a box of latex gloves and empty bags for evidence collection, they stationed themselves in front of the door, which was stripped of paint and had its peephole taped over.
Det. Sgt. GRINTON said Mr. YAW's forcible-confinement charge stems from the fact that the 16-year-old male who led police to the crime scene was confined in the apartment and at another undisclosed location. The man was treated for his wounds at a Toronto hospital yesterday and released.
Mr. YAW is expected to appear in court today.
