Niagara school mourns teacher - Niagara Falls ReviewTuesday, December 20, 2016
Students and staff at Ridgeway Crystal Beach High School are mourning the passing of a popular teacher.
Gregory Shaubel, 45, died suddenly on Friday.
Shaubel taught at the Ridge Road school for 15 years. He taught various subjects including English, geography and history.
Principal Fred Louws said Shaubel was well-loved by students and staff.
“He was one of our most enthusiastic school supporters and really embodied the Blue Devil spirit here at RCBHS,” he said.
“Whatever the event was, students could always count on (him) being involved with his unique brand of enthusiasm.”
On his school webpage, Shaubel wrote, “If you take a class with me, I would like to think that I not only teach you the subject material itself, but I will also help you mature as a person and prepare you for the next stages of your life.
“I believe that any student, if motivated properly, can rise to the challenge and be successful.”
Shaubel coached various sports teams at the school including girls volleyball as well as boys baseball...
Bronislawa BlaszczukWednesday, November 30, 2016
Egypt, and spending 6 years in Northern Rhodesia, Africa, she immigrated to Canada through Ellis Island, New York. She was welcomed to Canada by her brother, John Konop and his family, who lived in Ridgeway at the time. Bernice was always extremely devoted to her family. She treasured her grandchildren, inspired them to follow their dreams, and fostered a deep appreciation of family values. She played an integral role in providing them with a wonderful childhood, filled with incredible memories, as well as a strong appreciation of their Polish heritage, complete with the holiday traditions, language and delicious food. Bernice had a particularly special connection with her great-grandson, Quentin, who adored his “Babci”, and they appeared to be able to communicate even without words. Bernice was an active member of the Canadian Polish Society, and a devoted parishioner at Sts. Peter and Paul Church, where she also belonged to the Rosary Society. She was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary for many years as well. The family wishes to thank the compassionate and caring personal support workers, nurses and staff of ILTC, and especially Marlene and Emily, who always went above and beyond in tending to Bernice. Our family will be forever grateful. Family and friends will be received at J.J. Patterson & Sons Funeral Residence, 19 Young Street, Welland on Sunday, November 27 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm with prayer vigil at 8pm. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, November 28 at 10 am at Sts. Peter and Paul Church, 300 Chaffey St, Welland, followed by Rite of Committal at Pleasantview Mausoleum. If desired, donations may be made in Bernice’s memory to the McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation or Sts. Peter and Paul Church Building Fund. Bernice’s beautiful life will be forever cherished in the hearts of her family, and her kind, gentle, loving spirit will always remain in the lives of all who knew her. On line memories and condolences at www.jjpatterson.ca As a memorial tribute, a tree will be planted through The Niagara Woodlands Restoration Prog...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Flyers and Marlboros. (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...
Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

— City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
