BRUCE, John (1907-2007)
After a full and wonderful life, John passed away peacefully in his 100th year on January 3, 2007 in Vancouver. Loving husband of Edith for over 60 years, and dear father of Jamie (Cindy) BRUCE, Mary (Bryan) GRAHAM and Scott (Mary) BRUCE. Adored grandfather of David (Una), Martha (Graeme), Andrew, Jamie and Alison and great-grandfather of Lorna. Born in Scotland to Matthew and Maggie BRUCE, John grew up in Toronto and used his ever creative talents to build a rewarding career in advertising, primarily with Eaton's in both Toronto and Winnipeg. In retirement he and Edith moved to Vancouver where they spent many happy years together enjoying family and making many special Friendships. John's dedicated care of Edith in her battle with Alzheimer's disease was inspiring to us all and touched our hearts deeply. John taught us the importance of laughter and the value of family and Friends. Hoping to "live to be as old as his jokes" was a favourite expression of his and we are proud that he did just that. His kindness and gentle sense of humour will be greatly missed and his memory cherished. Genevieve Schneider's kindness to both John and Edith in recent years has been greatly appreciated by the family. Flowers are gratefully decliined but donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada or a charity of one's choice will be appreciated. Cremation has taken place and Friends will gather to remember John at Crofton Manor at 2 p.m. on Sunday, January 7, 2007.

He was among the first doctors in Canada to perform dialysis
Irish-born renal specialist who had trained in the U.S. introduced the experimental treatment to Kingston hospitals. Sometimes, he even built his own equipment
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Peter MORRIN was a Canadian pioneer in kidney dialysis who in 1967 performed one of the first successful uses of blood purification, or hemodialysis, in Kingston.
Although trained as a nephrologist - or kidney specialist - the Irish-born doctor did not want to get involved in hemodialysis when he first arrived at Kingston General Hospital. At the time, the equipment was large and complicated, and Doctor MORRIN maintained that dialysis would only work if applied by a properly trained team with the right apparatus. But a dramatic incident in the emergency room forced him to act before he was ready.
A badly injured car-accident victim arrived at Kingston General suffering from kidney failure, among other things. Dialysis might save him. As it turned out, an unused dialysis machine lay in the basement of the nearby Hotel Dieu Hospital. Volunteer fundraisers had donated the machine after a patient died of kidney failure and it had sat, untouched, ever since.
The trouble was, no one in Kingston was familiar with the thing - except for Doctor MORRIN, that is. Nine years earlier, he had been a member of a university medical team in Missouri that had been among the first in the world to achieve hemodialysis and he knew what he must do.
"We borrowed the Kingston General Hospital van and drove over to the Hotel Dieu where we found the kidney dialysis machine covered with dust and brought it back to Kingston General Hospital. I plugged it in, switched it on and it seemed to be in working order," recalled Doctor MORRIN in a memoir in 2004. "The operating room staff cleaned it, and we set it up in the one of the operating rooms."
It took eight hours to prepare the dialysis machine, which turned out to be tragically too long for the patient. By the time the machine was hooked up, his condition had deteriorated and he died.
"This event galvanized the hospital to establish a hemodialysis team and draw up the necessary protocols and procedures. The next patient with acute renal failure did not meet such a tragic end," relates a profile of Doctor MORRIN from the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
The next patient was another accident victim, a 21-year-old man who had rolled his car and spent six hours in a ditch before anyone noticed him. He was dying, and one of his problems was kidney failure. Doctor MORRIN and a urologist, Andrew BRUCE, stayed with the young man for six hours during the treatment. He survived.
Dialysis is used to mimic the functions of the kidneys, cleaning the blood, among other things. It is not a perfect replacement for a kidney, but treatment on a dialysis machine is enough to keep a patient alive. Dialysis can be used for patients with temporary or permanent kidney failure.
Peter MORRIN was the son of two Dublin doctors. He was sent to school in England at Ampleforth College, a Catholic boarding school run by the Benedictine Order. He returned to Ireland for university, studying medicine at University College, Dublin. In 1954, he graduated first in his class and studied in Liverpool for several months. He then went to work for two years at Boston City Hospital in Massachusetts.
After that, he moved to St. Louis, Missouri, for more postgraduate work and it was at the Washington University School of Medicine that he became a part of a team that was among the first anywhere to achieve hemodialysis. The 1958 procedure saved the life of a 9-year-old.
From there, he went on to become acting director of the renal division at the Barnes Hospital in St. Louis in 1960. Always a keen rugger player in Ireland, he hooked up with the local rugby club and it was through that connection that he met his wife, Mariella.
A year later, he arrived at Queen's University to be a lecturer in the department of medicine and to join the staff of Kingston General. After working in general medicine, he established the hospital's renal program and the nephrology division.
Along the way, he began experimenting with dialysis machines of his own. Applying what he had learned in Missouri and adding everything he had since figured out for himself, he began to put together his own equipment.
In 1965, he invented his own dialysis machine, said his friend, Ross Morton. Doctor MORRIN called it the King Med machine.
"He also had to mix his own chemical solution in a big steel drum," added Doctor MORTON, a professor of medicine at Queen's. "He put in water and added the correct concentration of chemicals. Now it's done automatically, but then it had to be done by hand."
In the end, it was not until 1967 that the Kingston dialysis unit opened. At first, it was just a four-bed unit located upstairs from the X-ray department. Today, the unit has eight nephrologists on staff and provides dialysis to 250 patients in Kingston, as well as another 100 patients in seven satellite centres and at homes in eastern Ontario from Brockville to Belleville.
Along with his specialty in nephrology, Doctor MORRIN was also a medical ethicist. From the outset, many ethical questions arose about who would receive dialysis and who would not. To be refused was to receive a death sentence.
Hospital boards made decisions on who would be given dialysis, since the machinery, the chemicals and the medical specialists were in short supply. Sometimes, hospitals would choose men over women because men were the breadwinners. It was something that always troubled Doctor MORRIN.
"In the early days of dialysis, you had to be between the ages of 15 to 45 to qualify - with no other serious disease apart from the renal failure. It was done by a committee," said Doctor MORTON. "Peter was a very fair man and worked on the basis that anyone who could benefit from the treatment should get it. He always struck the right ethical balance."
In his academic career, Doctor MORRIN started as a lecturer in medicine at Queen's in 1961, and rose to become a full professor by 1977. He took a sabbatical year in 1975-76, studying at the Institute of Nephrology in Paris.
Peter MORRIN was an outgoing man. All his life he retained the soft accent of educated Dublin, but he could mimic the many other Irish accents. If he listened to an Irishman speak, he could pinpoint the county of his birth - be it Kerry, Sligo or Wexford.
He was also a great storyteller and raconteur. At his engagement party in St. Louis he was cornered by some Americans who seemed to think all Irishmen were peasants, priests or Bing Crosby.
"So, Peter, why did you come to America?"
"Well, because the bull died."
His audience was astonished.
"Well, you see," he continued, straight-faced," I was engaged to be married to a lovely Irish girl. But in Ireland, the bride's family must provide a dowry. Then, the night before the wedding, the bull - the dowry - died. So we couldn't get married, and I had to leave Ireland."
Mariella, his fiancée, soon broke up the bull session.
A devoted family man, Doctor MORRIN was involved in the lives of his three sons as children and adults. He took up sailing, first buying a sailboat and then a book on how to sail. The family sailed out of the Kingston Yacht Club and one son, Hugh, went on to represent Canada at the 1981 world youth championships in Portugal. Doctor MORRIN was also a keen fly fisherman.
In 1995, he retired from clinical work and full-time teaching. The Peter Morrin Prize in Nephrology, established by colleagues and Friends on his retirement, is awarded annually to the fourth-year medical student at Queen's University obtaining the highest overall standing in nephrology.
Peter Arthur Francis MORRIN was born in Dublin, Ireland, on October 8, 1931. He died at Kingston, Ontario, on October 3, 2007, of injuries suffered in a head-on car accident that occurred while on his way home from a day spent fly fishing. He was five days short of his 75th birthday. Doctor MORRIN is survived by his wife, Mariella, and his three sons, Peter, Hugh and Robin.

Deadly triangle
A London teacher and one man are found dead in a car. Another man is shot in a parking lot.
By Joe BELANGER, Patrick MALONEY and Joe MATYAS, Sun Media, Mon., December 10, 2007
A London teacher is dead and a colleague recovering in hospital after a stunning parking lot ambush yesterday that preceded an apparent murder-suicide 300 kilometres away.
Angela SEDORE, 40, was found dead in her sport utility vehicle near Peterborough just hours after Ed DICKSON/DIXON -- a fellow teacher at Ashley Oaks elementary school -- was shot by SEDORE's boyfriend outside a south London plaza, family members say.
SEDORE's sister said she had been dating a man named Ray KING for two years.
The bodies of KING and SEDORE were found, apparently shot to death, in her sport utility vehicle south of Peterborough following a police chase.
"This guy obviously came for one thing and that was to kill all three of them," DICKSON/DIXON's father, Ken DICKSON/DIXON, said.
DICKSON/DIXON's father said it appears a phone call to his son's home from a colleague whom his son had just started dating may have set the tragic chain of events in motion early yesterday.
DICKSON/DIXON, 36, told his father SEDORE sounded distraught and wanted to meet him, so he decided to go see if everything was all right. He later described to his father a chilling scene.
Upon arriving at the parking lot outside the A and P store at Wellington and Commissioners roads about 1: 40 a.m., he approached the woman's vehicle when a man hopped out, armed with a gun.
The man fired, the bullet ripping through one side of DICKSON/DIXON's stomach and out the other, then through the window of his Jeep, he told his father.
"If he didn't turn (his body,) he'd be a dead man," Ken DICKSON/DIXON said after visiting his son in the hospital. "A gunshot wound to the stomach, you're a dead man."
Remarkably, Ed DICKSON/DIXON told his father he jotted down the licence plate number as the vehicle drove off.
Within an hour, SEDORE's apartment on the second floor of a quaint Hyman Street home was swarming with police officers whose dramatic arrival stunned neighbours.
Durham regional officers, east of Toronto, were on alert for SEDORE's sport utility vehicle in connection with the London shooting and would soon be following it.
About 4: 45 a.m. yesterday, the Ontario Provincial Police was asked to follow the sport utility vehicle as it travelled north on Highway 115, which runs from Highway 401 to Peterborough, SEDORE's home town.
The sport utility vehicle drove over a police spike belt and went into a ditch, about 10 kilometres south of Peterborough. SEDORE and a man found inside were dead of apparent gunshot wounds.
Police sources told Sun Media the dead man in the sport utility vehicle is Ray KING, 41.
A neighbour, who described SEDORE as a "wonderful" person, said the teacher had been dating a man named Ray.
Having dramatically changed his appearance -- dropping 30 pounds and getting a new haircut -- he was visiting her in London this weekend, the neighbour said.
Officers from the Ontario Provincial Police and city police were at SEDORE's apartment for much of yesterday, taking away a slew of items including her computer, a neighbour said.
SEDORE's birth mother, who only met her now-grown daughter three years ago, was stunned by yesterday's tragedy.
"There's no words to say how I feel," Johanna YATEMAN said when contacted at her Peterborough home. "I feel great, great loss."
The Special Investigations Unit, which probes any civilian death involving police, is investigating the case.
"This is a tragic circumstance and there's a lot to be done," the Special Investigations Unit's lead investigator, Allan EATON, said.
Ken DICKSON/DIXON, who travelled to London from Detroit during the weekend for a family Christmas party, said his son was conscious but struggling in the aftermath of his close call. "He's starting the goofy stuff -- 'I should have called the police (before going),' " he said.
Several teachers at Ashley Oaks, reached at their homes yesterday, declined comment.
A huge swath of the parking lot at the busy south-end plaza -- which houses several restaurants and a busy grocery store -- was taped off for hours as officers scoured around DICKSON/DIXON's green Jeep, a bullet hole clearly visible in its side window.
Shoppers coming in and out of the A and P were stunned by the scene.
"This city is getting bad," said one elderly woman. "You've got to have eyes in the back of your head."
DICKSON/DIXON's shooting happened fewer than 24 hours after the death of Anthony BRUN in an Old South home a few blocks away. A man [later identified as Gordon Tyler McCURDY] has been charged with second-degree murder in the 24-year-old's death.
What Happened
Late Saturday Night: Londoner Ed DICKSON/DIXON gets a distraught-sounding call from a fellow teacher at Ashley Oaks elementary school. He goes to meet her at the A and P store parking lot at Wellington and Commissioners roads, arriving about 1: 30 a.m. yesterday.
A man with a gun exits the woman's vehicle and fires a shot that rips through DICKSON/DIXON's stomach. The vehicle takes off. Wounded, DICKSON/DIXON jots down the licence plate and calls police.
Yesterday, 4: 45 a.m.: Durham Regional Police ask Peterborough Ontario Provincial Police to intercept an sport utility vehicle, wanted in a London investigation, along Highway 115, which extends north from the 401 toward Peterborough.
The sport utility vehicle runs over a police spike belt south of Hwy. 7A and ends up in a ditch, 10 km south of Peterborough.
Ontario Provincial Police find the bodies of a man and a woman Ray KING of Belleville and London teacher Angela SEDORE -- in the sport utility vehicle. They appear to have been shot to death. The sport utility vehicle is registered to SEDORE.

'An amazing guy' lost
Family say Anthony BRUN, who was killed Saturday, would do anything for them.
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Mon., December 10, 2007
A 24-year-old Londoner slain this weekend was remembered yesterday as a well-liked man who would do anything for his parents and brothers.
Anthony BRUN, a John Paul II alumnus who worked with a relative in the flooring business, died in hospital following an incident inside an Old South home early Saturday.
"He was a wonderful young man," Mary BRUN, Anthony's stepmother, said yesterday.
"My son, my beautiful son was taken. And it shouldn't have happened."
Added BRUN's 14-year-old brother, Nick, "He was an amazing guy. All my family think he's an amazing guy. I loved him."
Relatives say BRUN was out with acquaintances Friday night and returned to one of their homes, at 189 Belgrave Ave. just south of Emery.
London police were called at about 7 a.m. Saturday following what was described as a "disturbance." A relative says BRUN was found injured on the front lawn.
He was later pronounced dead in hospital. A man who lives at the home is charged with second-degree murder in London's fourth homicide of 2007.
As an active teenager, BRUN was a basketball player who spent years refereeing tournaments across the city.
"He was… well-liked by people," said his emotional father, Luigi. "I'm shocked. I cried all night (Saturday) night. He was my oldest son, you know?"
About a year ago, BRUN crossed paths with police as a witness to a shooting inside Robinson Hall, a posh downtown nightclub.
He was arguing with a cousin, Luciano BALDINELLI, over a gold chain when a third man shot BALDINELLI. BRUN wasn't charged in the incident, a relative said.
The funeral is slated for 11 a.m. Thursday at Saint Mary's Church on Lyle Street.
Gordon Tyler McCURDY, 33, who lives at 189 Belgrave Ave., is charged with second-degree murder.

Widow found slain
Her son is charged with murder in the death in the complex in Westmount.
By Katherina DEHAAS, Patrick MALONEY and Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Wed., December 26, 2007
Cranbrook Trace is a caring little community, a clutch of high-end London condos where residents greet their neighbours by name and keep an eye out for one another.
Some in the Westmount complex would dutifully check in on Helen VICARY, calling every few days to say hello and see how the kind, elderly widow was getting along.
Then, a few weeks ago, she stopped answering the phone.
She was no longer seen picking up her mail, either.
Now, a 48-year-old man, identified by neighbours as VICARY's son, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of a woman whose body was found at his mother's home on Christmas Eve.
Police haven't publicly identified the woman.
"We did notice that we hadn't seen (VICARY) in awhile," Eric JOHNSON, who lives a few doors away, said yesterday. "In the last month, we hadn't seen her at all."
Monday, London police swooped down on the VICARY home, unit 23 at 505 Cranbrook Rd., while searching for someone reported missing that morning.
A woman was found dead inside.
That night, neighbours say police went door-to-door asking about Helen VICARY.
Craig James VICARY, 48, whom, neighbours identified as Helen's son, is charged with second-degree murder. He had been living at the condo, police said yesterday.
With investigators still scouring the home for evidence, neighbours who would be otherwise occupied with the holiday were shaking their heads over the city's sixth homicide of the year.
"Obviously, we're all shocked by it," said one man. "It's really not hit home yet. We really haven't had a whole lot of time to reflect on it."
One neighbour said VICARY moved into the condo about three years ago but had lived alone since her husband died Christmas Day two years ago. Her grown children live in the area.
Investigators were first called to the condo Monday after a report of a missing person. Police haven't said who notified them of the disappearance.
Police then searched for a brown, four-door Pontiac Grand Am, which was registered to Helen VICARY.
JOHNSON, who described the elderly VICARY as kind and friendly, said the homicide is "unnerving… a close community. A lot of elderly people and we watch out for each other."
The Christmas Eve discovery marked the third serious incident in London this month. Early December 8, 24-year-old Anthony BRUN was found injured outside an Old South home and later died in hospital. Gordon Tyler McCURDY, 33, is charged with second-degree murder. Later that day, teacher Ed DICKSON/DIXON was seriously hurt in a south-end parking lot shooting. Angela SEDORE, who taught with DICKSON/DIXON, was killed in a murder-suicide, apparently at the hands of Ray KOVACS, whose body was found in her sport utility vehicle after a police chase.

Victims hard-working, respected farmers
By April KEMICK and Vera OVANIN, Sun Media, Tues., July 24, 2007
Though police refused to identify the elderly couple slain in their home yesterday, neighbours and sources close to the family said they were longtime Mount Carmel residents Bill and Helene REGIER.
Phone calls made to several Regiers listed under Dashwood were met with emotional rejection.
"My family is grieving," said a woman at a Regier residence before hanging up the phone.
Neighbours confirmed police were on scene at the REGIER farm on Bronson Line north of Mount Carmel, where Bill and Helene had lived for decades.
The REGIERs, both in their 70s, were "hard-working" farmers who attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel Roman Catholic church for years, Friends said.
"They are very, very nice people, very respected in the community," said South Huron Coun. Jim DIETRICH, who has known the couple all his life.
"It's going to be a loss."
The couple had three sons, DIETRICH said.
Mike BRUNEEL, principal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel school, where Bill REGIER worked for years as a custodian, said the couple will be sorely missed.
The community -- home to the REGIERs' children and grandchildren has been rocked by their deaths, he said.
"These were two pillars of the community who were deeply loved by everybody," BRUNEEL said.
"We're still reeling from the shock."
Dale REGIER, one of the couple's sons, is the custodian at Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the couple's grandchildren attend the school, BRUNEEL said.
Though the elderly couple had downsized their farming operation in recent years, the REGIERs were still raising sheep and working on the farm, neighbours said.
"This is so bizarre," said neighbour Paul MCINNES/MCINNIS, who lives less than a kilometre from the REGIERs' farm, which was cordoned off and crawling with police officers yesterday.
"I just saw (Bill) on Saturday. He was out burning garbage."
The elderly couple were "hard-working" people, he said.
"They were great people."

Mavis will be sadly missed by her brothers and sisters-in-law Nancy and Kenneth MALLINSON (Langley, British Columbia), Pat BURNS and John MALLINSON (Lachine, Quebec), Audrey KNOWLES (Pointe Claire, Quebec), Mary BRANDON (Fenelon Falls, Ontario,) and Isobel and Doug CLERK (Fenelon Falls, Ontario,) her nieces, nephews and cousins. Mavis is predeceased by her brothers Robert and Harold MALLINSON. She has relatives and Friends right across Canada, from British Columbia to the Atlantic Provinces and will be fondly remembered by them all. Mom was born in Montreal on July 9th, 1920, the daughter of Donalda Grace (WOOD) and George James MALLINSON. She graduated from West Hill High School in 1938. After completing a secretarial course, she worked at Ciba Company and Allied War Supplies. As the daughter of an National Hockey League referee, she had a great love of sports throughout her life. She was a member of the Notre-Dame de Grace Tennis Club and spent many winter weekends in the Laurentians skiing. After her marriage to Fred in 1943, the couple enjoyed teaching their children how to have fun. Ice skating, swimming, bike riding, fishing and going on picnics were family pastimes. For many years, Mavis and Fred were enthusiastic members of the Montreal West Curling Club. Mom was also an active member of Westmount Baptist Church and taught Bible study at the church's summer retreat in the Eastern Townships, Cedar Lodge. In 1979, Mom moved to Brampton to be closer to her grandchildren. She took up lawn bowling and joined the local Brampton club. In early 1989, Mom was introduced to John McINTOSH. The happy couple married and moved to Belleville where they enjoyed visits with John's family. Mom was a member of the Belleville Newcomers Club and Ladies Euchre Group. As well as ensuring her children were well educated, Mom passed on to them a great love of music. She was herself part of many musical organizations. She sang in the Westmount Baptist Choir and the Brampton Choral Society, and was a member of the Sandalwood Chime Choir. She loved listening to performances of the Metropolitan Opera on the radio and tolerated her son's rock band practices in the basement of the Belmore Avenue home. Mom was a helpful daughter, a caring sister, a good wife and a wonderful mother. She was a proud and loving grandmother. Most important of all, you could not ask for a better friend. We will all miss her infectious laugh. Many thanks to the staff at Sandalwood who looked after Mom with kindness, patience, and understanding.

GRANT, Doreen Violet (née COWAN) (February 21, 1924-June 3, 2007)
In her 84th year, as a result of a debilitating stroke, Doreen passed away surrounded by her family and under the compassionate care of the staff at Sunnybrook Hospital. Even though she was paralyzed and without speech, Doreen was able to communicate expressions of her love to the members of her family and Friends at her bedside with a smile and a squeeze of the hand. She was predeceased in 1983 by her husband of over 40 years, William (Bill) A. GRANT, an executive of Philips Electronics. She leaves behind her family: daughter Margaret, daughter Karen (Larry JACKSON,) daughter-in-law Carol GRANT and son Hugh (Sheri PURCELL.) She is lovingly remembered by her four grandchildren, Scott (Liz PLATTS), Tracey (Dave PENDER), Joni BRUNTON (Andrew LAMORE), and Kate JACKSON; and one great-grandchild, Jessica MacDONALD and many beloved nieces and nephews. Her two remaining brothers, Bert COWAN (Sue) of Vancouver and George COWAN (Lena) of Port Colborne also mourn her passing. She is predeceased by her siblings: Het NURSE, Boyd COWAN and Mary JOHNSON. Doreen remained vigorous, vibrant and independent until her stroke. She lived in her own home, carefully tended her own gardens and played bridge with a number of groups. 'Granny' was a welcome and active participant in the lives of her children and their families. The day of the stroke she was taking pleasure in the warm spring sun from her seat on the front porch swing of her home. Through her life Doreen was an active force in everything in which she became involved. Through the fifties and sixties, summers at the 'Lake of Two Rivers' cottage meant all the Algonquin Park staff knew her by name. She was also active in the Progressive Conservative Party at both the federal and provincial levels, participating in many election and leadership campaigns. Following cremation, a visitation will be held at the Pine Hills Visitation, Chapel and Reception Centre, 625 Birchmount Road, Toronto (416-267-8229) on Sunday, June 10, 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Memorial Celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation or Sunnybrook Health Science Centre.

Police point to diabetes as probable cause of death for Algoma Chief Executive Officer's daughter
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A20
The daughter of Algoma Steel Inc. president and Chief Executive Officer Denis TURCOTTE likely suffered diabetic complications before dying in her Ryerson University dorm room, police and family say.
When Adele TURCOTTE, 17, didn't answer her phone all day Thursday, her mother, Julie, called one of her daughter's Friends who lives in the same residence building to check on her, Toronto police Detective Robert GORDON said yesterday.
The friend found her in bed in her sixth-floor single room without vital signs about 4: 15 p.m.
A postmortem examination conducted yesterday was inconclusive, but Det. GORDON said foul play is not suspected and police are not looking for witnesses. Police have also ruled out suicide.
The first-year fashion student had diabetes since she was six years old, "and worked hard at having a normal life in spite of it," her family wrote in a death notice.
The coroner's office is now awaiting the results of a toxicology test, which "examines fluids of the body, the blood and everything to see what's in there - you know, alcohol, drugs, whatever her insulin level was at the time," Det. GORDON said.
Ms. TURCOTTE, who was born in Saint John but grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, "was the best friend a girl could have," one of her closest Friends, Stefanie BRUZAS, 18, said from Sault Ste. Marie last night.
"She's been through everything with me. A rough breakup, a fight with my Friends - she would never take sides but she would talk me through it."
Ms. BRUZAS, who is also attending school in Toronto, said Ms. TURCOTTE had designed her own clothing line, Turca, before being accepted at Ryerson and would often dress in her own designs when going out.
"She was doing everything she wanted to," Ms. BRUZAS said. "She knew how to have fun, but she always got her work done. She made great Friends after moving to Toronto, but stuck with her old ones. Her life was perfect. She was perfect."
