Sadly Hilary Bell, Community Leader, Passes

Reposted from Junction Triangle Community site

Sadly Hilary Bell died a few days ago due to cancer. Hilary was known in many circles for her tireless community work and advocacy for improving communities. She was involved in creating Railpath, the natural garden along Dundas, the murals under the Wallace Bridge to name but a few. She was a fair but formidable foe to developers, Metrolinx, and politicians when she needed to be but never lost her sense of humour and the desire for a hearty bike ride. This obit is provided by the family and there will be more news to follow. I note that the wonderful picture of Hilary was taken at the official opening of Railpath.

Hilary Bell was a long time member of the TWBCA Steering Committee

The people who help make great things happen in a community deserve to be known and remembered by that community. Rest in peace, Hilary Bell.

Hilary Bell passed away on September 2011.

To celebrate her life there will be a gathering of friends and family in our neighborhood on Saturday September 17, 2011 from 2 to 5 PM.

Hilary loved Pilates and spent many mornings and evenings at the studio. We felt it would be fitting to have the event there.

396 Pacific Avenue, suite 201, Toronto M6P 1Z2.

Snacks and drinks will be served.

Your presence would be much appreciated.
