WINIFRED CROZA "Winnie, Mom, Gran" December 15, 1922 - October 24, 2015 In her 93rd year, Winnie peacefully passed into God's hands on the evening of Saturday, October 24th in Squamish, BC. Beloved wife of Sam (predeceased in 1987), loving mother of Mike (Laurel) and Helen (Rob), grandmother to Shannon (Aidan), Caitie (Andrew), Allie (Terence), Jake (Lorraine) and Sam. Great-grandmother to Keaton, Porter and Archer. Our loving family in England, sister to Teresa (Tommy deceased), Joe (deceased) and Margaret (deceased), aunt to Bernadette (Andrew), Dominic (Aude), Tony (Barbara, deceased) and Bernard and great-aunt to Chris, Zoe, Oliver, Anita and Gavin (Sheree) Connor and Liam. Winnie's independent spirit and work ethic was evident through her teen years, working in a Leeds Yorkshire bomber aircraft assembly plant during WWII, then marrying Sam and coming to Canada for a new life in 1952. While raising her children, Winnie became a waitress and worked at Moe Pancer's Deli on Bathurst Street for over 40 years, retiring at 80. She was loved by the staff and customers, as she always had a smile and a genuine interest and concern for others. Winnie was also a fighter and would challenge anyone who had overstepped their bounds on her kindness or her family, as she could be a force to be reckoned with. At 80, she decided to move from Toronto and follow Helen to Calgary and then to Squamish, BC. Winnie was an inspiration to us all in how she lived her life, never giving up in spite of limitations and carried on with a courageous spirit of optimism and humour. A motto that helped her and us at various times in life was an old Yorkshire saying, "Never say die, up man and try". She was so proud and there was nothing that made her happier than seeing and hearing about her family, her grandchildren and great- grandchildren and knowing they would be all right. There will be a Funeral Mass on Thursday, October 29th at 10:30 a.m. at St. Joseph's of Squamish and private family ceremony to follow. For those who wish or in lieu of flowers, donations in Winnie's name can be made to Save the Children Fund: www.savethechildren.ca/DonatetoChildren and online condolences can be made to Squamish Funeral Chapel: www.squamishfuneralchapel.com

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (2)

TIBOR ORBAN " May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest" William Shakespeare February 18, 1923 - December 15, 2016 In his 93rd year, Tibor passed away peacefully at his long term care home. Tibor was predeceased by his wife Teresa. He is dearly missed by his son Laszlo and daughter-in-law Caroline. Tibor was born in Budapest, Hungary. At the age of 12 he was compelled to leave school and find work after the death of his father in order to support his mother and sister. He lived through the Great Depression and World War II and showed the remarkable resiliency of those of his generation. Tibor was a man of integrity. He refused to join the Hungarian Communist Party, resulting in very poor opportunities for work and advancement in Communist Hungary. The family arrived in Canada as hunted refugees after the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, with very little and settled first in Fort William. In spite of not speaking English, Tibor took any work available - backbreaking work much of the time. Several years later the family moved to Toronto. Tibor retired from George Brown College after many years as a cleaner where he took great pride in his work. He had an enduring devotion to classical music and the arts, especially opera. After a hard evening's work, he would listen to Bach, Beethoven and Wagner. Beneath a reserved exterior, he had a kind, generous and compassionate heart. In retirement, he built detailed model railway layouts for his Marklin HO and Z scale trains. Laszlo spent many hours with his father as a result. For many years, Tibor would visit weekly with us to have his espresso coffee, argue about the state of the world and listen to his favourite composers. Christmas Eve was a magical time for him and we will continue to celebrate it as he would have wanted. We would like to thank the staff at Castleview-Wychwood Long Term Care Home for their caring support during Tibor's last few weeks. We would also like to thank the CNIB for their support when Tibor's vison was failing. In keeping with Tibor's wishes, cremation has already taken place and a private service will be held. Online condolences may be made through www.newediukfuneralhome.com/ A_Roy_Miller_Chapel_SM.html

Besides creating picturesque oil paintings, Mary was a childhood caregiver to baby carrier pigeons and a lifetime bird lover. Over thirty identical pigeons encircled the ground around the tree outside her nursing home window Friday, while what sounded like thousands of birds chorused her as she gratefully joined 'Our Lord' and her dear, late husband, Robert Henry (Bruce) Lamble. Bruce predeceased Mary on July 18, 2007, after 65 years of marriage. 4 siblings: Nancy, Wilf, Mabel and Eva also predeceased her but Mary carried on stoically, as was her custom. Sadly missed, she is survived by her son John Lamble in Ontario and daughter Elizabeth Louise of Calgary. Cherished by her large Western family, Mary is mourned by granddaughter Kathi Waddell, hubby Steve; Adam and David Waddell and siblings Tara, Okello, Obong, Ajullo, Jake, Linda, Will and Sarah. Also granddaughter Carole Kroeger, sons Kyle, Joshua, Mathew and his Jenn, with their son Skyler (Mary's 1st great-great grandson) and Carole's caring friend Larry. Also saddened are grandson Craig Kembley and Shelley, with their sons James and Grayson. From Toronto, Mary's sister-in-law Dorothy Lamble and nephew Jim Lamble, her nephew Gordon Greaves and his wife Janet, and from Vancouver Island, nephew Fred Mills, wife Bernice and family. Mary-Ethel Lamble will always be remembered as a 'real lady' by all and a beautiful one, who loved beautiful things. A Memorial Service will be held at FOSTER'S GARDEN CHAPEL, 3220-4 Street NW, Calgary (across from Queen's Park Cemetery), on Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made directly to Alzheimer Society of Calgary, 201-222 58 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB T2H 2S3.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (5)

ANNE ROSEMARY (HOOPER) KEFFERMarch 29,1935 - November 16, 2015Anne loved life. Throughout her 80 years, she exemplified grace. Her artistic accomplishments were many, including sculpting and weaving but her passion was painting, her landscapes in particular showing a dramatic vibrancy and structure. She loved to ski, sail and golf each of which she attacked with a competitive passion. Her career encompassed, fashion modeling, sales and organizational management. In the latter, she held senior positions at C&C Yachts in Port Credit and Niagara-on-the-Lake, and later Derlan Aerospace in Cambridge. Following that, with a small staff, she took over the administration of the three local chapters of the Young Presidents Organization and stayed there until her retirement in 2000.With her partner Jim, husband for 60 rewarding years, they travelled widely, living for a time in Cambridge UK, Aix-en-Provence France, Tarragona Spain and in these latter years, Florida. Her family was so important to her; David, her older son with his wife Zora and daughter Jessica Anne; John with his wife Aisling and their two boys James Wellington and Rory Thomas. She leaves behind her brothers Hedley and John with their wives Chengmin and Julia and her sister Sharon with her husband Jim Hammersley. Her friends were many and varied. The various circles often overlapped. They included golf and sailing buddies, Oakville neighbours, where they lived for some 20 years, and Cabbagetown friends, where she and Jim have lived for the past 25 years. Other intersections included YPO acquaintances, U of T connections through her husband, classmates at the YMCA and very importantly, their recent Florida connections.Her last years were a challenge. A debilitating stroke bracketed by various cancers. And then finally a tumour of the brain, for which there can never be any real recovery. She died peacefully surrounded by family at Bridgepoint Hospital, keeping her sunny disposition to the end with an infectious smile that lit up the space around her.A small private ceremony for family will be held in the Necropolis Chapel in Cabbagetown. In addition a celebration of her life lived, will be held later at a time and place to be decided.

We thank the Palliative team at Princess Margaret for caring for Kal. In his typically understated way, Kal didn't want a funeral. In his memory, play The Who or CCR, loud.

His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him and ultimately gave him peace. Nicolo was born in Vita, Sicily, Italy, on May 20, 1937, to Vincenzo Abate and Vita Ditta. He immigrated to Canada at the age of 21 and briefly settled in Montreal. Nicolo's entrepreneurial spirit, hard work ethic and his strong faith in God was the foundation on which he lived his life and raised his family. He then moved to Toronto, where he raised his family and for the next 50 years he paved many paths on and around the streets of the city. Nicolo married Giuseppa Adamo, on July 28, 1962. He was a devoted husband and a pillar of faith within his family, his church and his community. Nicolo is survived by his wife, Giuseppa; his children Vita (Tony), Vincenzo (Paola), Salvatore (April), Italo, Filippina (Dino) and John Luca (Christina); his grandchildren Rosie (Sergei), Josie Bianca, Nello, Nick (Erica), Vincenzo, Juliana, Joseph, Mary Angela, Anna Maria, Stephen, Josie Donna, Josie Ella, Angelo, Niccolo, Nick, Francesco and Mauro; and his great-grandchildren Torino and Leo. Nicolo's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the pride and joy of his life. The legacy of Nicolo's kind spirit, passion for spreading the Good News of our Lord, Jesus Christ and his zest for life will live on through them. In accordance with current provincial guidelines, a private family service will be held at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery. A celebration of his life will be announced at a later date.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (42)

ABATE, Giuseppa Giuseppa (Adamo) Abate was welcomed and reunited with her loving husband, Nicolo, in the Kingdom of Heaven on Tuesday, December 28, 2021. Giuseppa was born on February 22, 1943 in Vita, Trapani, Sicily. The youngest of 5 girls (survived by her sister, Lucia). Having lost her mother, Filippa Ditta at the age of 9, her father, Salvatore Adamo gathered the family and moved to Canada for the opportunity of a better life. Married at the age of 19, she lovingly raised 6 children, Vita (Tony), Vincenzo (Paola), Salvatore (April), Italo, Filippina (Dino) and Giovanni Luca (Christina). She tenderly nurtured 17 grandchildren, Rosie, Nick (Erica), Josie Bianca, Vincenzo, Josie Donna, Nello, Juliana, Joseph, MaryAngela, Anna Maria, Josie-Ella, Stefan, Angelo, Niccolo, Nick, Francesco, Mauro, and proudly cherished her 3 great-grandchildren, Torino, Leo and Michaela. She was a humble and kind mother who dedicated her life to raising a family and being a devoted wife. Her life emanated the gospel value of "love thy neighbor", welcoming everyone into her home with open arms, homemade pizza, cassadetti and cannoli. She was a devoted member of her parish as a choir member and volunteer. She had a love of reading and would weave her wealth of knowledge creatively throughout conversations. Finding the good in everyone and always thanking God for all her blessings, she regularly donated to missionary efforts and many charities. Always thinking of others before herself. We fondly remember our mother with the words of her favourite saint, St. Therese De Lisieux. "The Loveliest Masterpiece Of The Heart of God is the Heart of a Mother". In memory of Giuseppa's giving spirit, the family asks, in lieu of flowers, that charitable donations be made to The Covenant House, 20 Gerrard Street East. Toronto, Ontario M5B 2P3. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, January 3, 2022, at Epiphany of Lord Church, 3200 Pharmacy Avenue, Toronto, at 10:30 a.m. A private entombment will take place at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery. Online condolences may be made at www.catholic-cemeteries.com

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (66)

JUNE RUTH ABBOTT June 06, 1928 - October 20, 2011 June Ruth Abbott, born June 06, 1928, passed away peacefully on a clear sunny autumn day of October 30, 2011, to meet the love of her life, Donald Thomas Abbott (deceased - 1984). She leaves behind a bright legacy in her daughters, Nancy Abbott and Diane Keefe (Michael). Loving Grandmother to Matthew Hiebert, Sean and Sarah Keefe who were the light-of-her eyes and will miss their "Granny's" quick wit and thirst for knowledge on "how was your day" or "what's new"? Predeceased by her parents Clifford and Alice Rayner, and Don's parent's Joseph and Grace Abbott, June, the oldest of five children and the only non-twin, also leaves her twin brothers, Ron (Hazel) and Don; twin sister Norma and brother Bruce (Marg) and their families who meant so much to Mom. Don's brother Bill and his wife Mary, June's lifelong girlfriend, "before the boys" and families will also feel her loss. Our families have remained close over the decades and Mom was the glue that held us all together. She will also be missed by her four-legged companion, Finnegan who was always by her side. Junie as she was affectionately named by her family and friends, was above all loving, gentle and kind. She was known to have the gift of the gab, an opinion on just about anything, a sparkle in her eyes, the love of her Irish and English heritage, a cold glass of Reisling and loved her family to distraction. She was a special woman who touched so many lives and each one she enriched with her presence. She will be sorely missed. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter "Butler" Chapel, 4933 Dundas St. W., (between Islington and Kipling Aves.) on Wednesday from 7-9 p.m. A Celebration of June's Life will be held at St. James United Church, 400 Burnhamthorpe Rd., on Thursday, November 3, 2011, at 10:30 a.m. At the family's request, donations in memory of June can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the charity of your choice.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (81)

MURRAY DANIEL ABBOTT It is with profound and overwhelming sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of Murray Daniel Abbott at the age of 36. Murray's death has left a hole in many hearts. He leaves his loving wife, Ioana, and cherished son, Julian Daniel. Murray was the treasured son of Murray and Cathy, wonderful brother to Michael (Lisa) and Danny. Generous and fun loving uncle to Liam and Makayla. He was the dearly loved nephew of Laura May, Bill Olson, the late Paula Olson and Ray Cairns (the late Gail). He was greatly loved by his Auntie Pat. Also mourning his loss are cousins: Bill, Janet, Susan, Chris, Mark, Paula and their families. Murray's circle of love extended far beyond his family. His childhood friends became his lifetime friends. Work colleagues quickly became work friends. Murray's closest friends describe him as having a big heart and a huge personality. He was a generous, kind and loving friend. One dear friend said: "He wasn't my friend, he was my brother." At a very young age Murray set personal career goals for himself. As a young boy he dreamed of working in the stock market; Murray worked hard and that dream was realized. He was Vice-President in the Capital Markets group of Morgan Stanley's Canadian Wealth Management Division. He was well respected on Bay St. and made numerous good friends in the business. When Murray mentioned work, he spoke with enthusiasm and pride. Murray developed a love for golfing at a very early age and was a member of Scarboro Golf and Country Club. He took many golfing vacations with good friends, but always said his favourite foursome was with his father and two younger brothers. The family is most grateful for the outpouring of love and support from Murray's lifelong friends who quickly organized a search for him when he went missing. Words alone cannot express our gratitude to all those who were involved - friends, work colleagues, neighbours. Their love for Murray was apparent. He was beloved by all. We would also like to thank the detectives of 55 Division who worked so closely with the family to find our beloved Murray. While Murray's life was much too short, he has left a mark on all who knew him. Rest in peace, sweet Murray. We will hold you in our hearts forever. We were blessed to have had you in our lives. Visitation on Thursday, May 14, 2015 from 6 - 9 p.m. at McDougall & Brown Funeral Home Scarborough Chapel, 2900 Kingston Rd. (just east of St. Clair Ave. E.). Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, May 15, 2015 at 11 a.m. at St. John's Roman Catholic Church, 794 Kingston Rd. (west of Malvern Ave.). Interment at Pine Hills Cemetery.

His memory will be forever cherished by his wife of 63 years, Margaret; his daughter, Jennifer, son-in-law Scott, granddaughter Ries; and daughter Leanne. Family was of the utmost importance to Gary. He treasured the time spent at the family cottage on Lake Baptiste, relishing the outdoors. Spending quiet mornings sipping tea on the deck, marvelling in his hummingbirds, and avian friends. Evenings on the lake, fishing and listening to the call of the loons. Gary was a dedicated educator, his career spanning 38 years. Beginning as principal of a two-room schoolhouse in Marlbank, Ontario; retiring as Principal of Westway Junior School with the Etobico*ke Board of Education in 1990. As per Gary's wishes, a celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Wildlife Federation. "Desiderata" Go placidly amid the noise and the haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to others. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees or the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. – Max Ehrmann

His love for family was nearly matched for his passion for the "Beautiful Game" or "Jogo Bonito" and his weekly game of cards with his poker buddies where the "high stakes" of pennies and dimes would lead to high drama and lots of laughs. In lieu of flowers, please consider honouring the incredibly brave front line workers who risked their lives to care for Nabil by making a donation to Sunnybrook Covid-19 relief fund. https://donate.sunnybrook.ca/covid19?utm_source=Sunnybrook&utm_medium=donationlanding&utm_campaign=Covid19

ABBS, Anne Sybil (nee HARMER) It is with sadness that we share the news of our mother's death, Anne Sybil Abbs (nee Harmer), who passed away peacefully at Hillcrest Village Care Centre, in Midland, on January 17, 2021, at age 88. Our family finds comfort in her passing as she battled severe dementia for the past few years. Sybil outlived her devoted husband, Lawrence who passed in 2006, after 56 years of marriage. She is survived by her loving family Cathy (Mike) Dytnerski, Debbie (Mike) Wig, Sally (Gus) McMillan, Patti (Larry) Miller, Linda (Steve) cumme*r, and Ted Abbs, along with 18 grandkids and 20.5 great-grandkids, as well as an older brother, Alan Harmer (Isabelle) of Burlington. Both the Abbs family and the Harmer family were founding figures in the community of Clarkson, Ontario (now Mississauga) with the Abbs flower business, Clargreen Gardens, being a landmark on Southdown Road for over 80 years. Sybil and Lawrence were active members of their community and also spent their recreational time cottaging on Sparrow Lake, and later on Gloucester Pool. A private family service will be held at Glen Oaks Funeral Home in Oakville and Mom will eventually join Dad in Springcreek Cemetery in Clarkson. We hope to celebrate mom's life with more family and friends at a later date. Thank you to the very special staff at Hillcrest who kept Mom safe during these recent difficult times. If you wish to make a charitable donation, the family suggests the Alzheimer Society of Ontario.

He experienced a steep and rapid decline after a stroke in June 2022, and bravely faced his challenges until the end. Joynal was born in Bangladesh. He won a prestigious scholarship to study engineering at Loughborough University in England. After successful completion of his studies, a move to Canada in the mid-1960s resulted in Joynal commencing work at Ontario Hydro.

Following a transfer to the downtown Toronto head office, Joynal moved his family to Oakville in 1976, where he remained until his final days. One of Joynal's passions was playing golf. He was a longtime member at Wyldewood Golf and Country Club, where he scored two of his three hole-in-ones; the third one was at Markland Woods. Joynal also loved to cook and entertain family and friends. He was an avid worldwide traveler with his wife, Sheila. Joynal also was a fitness enthusiast and a member of the Ontario Racquet Club. Joynal will be lovingly missed by his wife, Sheila; his sons, Justin and Shawn; his daughter-in-law, Angela; and his grandchildren, Ethan, Cody, Amelia and Otis. Cremation has taken place.

He had a tremendous, quirky sense of humour, was an avid musician and in his prime was an excellent, smooth-skating hockey player.

He continued to volunteer after his children were grown up and embraced his passion for music by playing guitar and singing at various events and charities. John entered politics eight years ago and served two terms as Deputy Mayor. His main objective – and mantra – was to improve the lives of the people of Aurora.

ABEL, THE REVEREND JUNE LOUISE (nee RUSE) September 14, 1930 – June 22, 2020 Died peacefully in her sleep, in her 90th year. Beloved wife of Thomas (deceased 2007), loving mother of Jim (Cynthia) and Martin (Kathleen), always proud grandmother of Kendra, Rachel, Carolyn and Kristen. Sister to Robert Ruse (Joan) of London, Ontario. Sister-in-law to Margaret (Peggy) Abel and Joyce (Richard - deceased) Abel. Born in Toronto, June moved to London in her teens where she attended South Collegiate and met the love of her life. While she would have loved to have finished the university education she started at Western, she committed herself to a brief career with London Life and thereafter devoted much of her life to raising her family. Ever inquisitive, at the age of 50 June started pursuing studies in theology at Trinity College, leading to her L.Th. degree and eventual ordination as an Anglican Priest. She enjoyed a variety of rewarding placements throughout Southern Ontario, from Toronto to Aurora to Whitby and Orillia and post-retirement has been Honorary Associate at All Saints' Kingsway Anglican Church, a community that she truly treasured. Always up for a good chat, June was well-suited to her calling. With her wonderful balance of intelligence, self-assurance, sensitivity and warmth she supported many through her focus on pastoral care. She was a patron of both ballet and theatre throughout her lifetime and lamented the recent cancellations of the National Ballet and Mirvish seasons. She volunteered for many years with the National Ballet of Canada in their Paper Things retail store and, together with Tom, was a supporter of Canada's National Ballet School for decades. June and Tom enjoyed a rich collection of friends who shared interests in tennis and theatre, with annual sojourns to Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Stratford Festival. They travelled extensively, taking advantage of international conferences to see Europe, Asia and North America. Their sailing adventures have become the stuff of family legend. She made many friends in her new home at Delmanor Prince Edward and we are so grateful for the outstanding care the management and staff demonstrated in recent months throughout the pandemic. June will be interred at a private ceremony for family at Park Lawn Cemetery; a celebration of her life will be scheduled when the current restrictions have been lifted. For those wishing to make a memorial donation in June's memory, please direct it to Canada's National Ballet School Foundation, All Saints' Kingsway Anglican Church or to a charity of your choice.

ABELL, Ann Purdy (nee McGuire and formerly McDowell and Bullard) 1922 - 2017 Former proprietor of Mary and Ann's Beauty Shop in Guelph, ON. Annie Abell (nee McGuire) died peacefully under the care of Hospice in her 96th year, on July 21, 2017 in Lehigh Acres, FL, where she spent the last 20 years of her life. Predeceased by her Scottish parents Edward and Sarah (Haig) McGuire and her siblings Mary, Tom, Eddie Jr., Fran and Ruth. Also predeceased by her stillborn child and by three nephews and one niece. Annie's first husband, Lloyd McDowell, a member of the RCAF, died in WWII. After 40 years of marriage, her second husband Carl Bullard also died. Finally, she married and had 17 happy years with her former brother-in-law, Robert W. Abell, before he died in 2012. It's a great testament to Annie to have had 3 very successful marriages. She was devoted to each husband in turn and kept them laughing too. Survivors include her two brothers-in-law, one nephew and six nieces. Annie was born in England at Newcastle on Tyne on March 26, 1922, the second of 6 children. In 1925, she travelled with her mother, sister Mary and brother Tom to Canada to join their father who had gone ahead. The family settled in the Cabbagetown neighbourhood in Toronto, ON, Canada. Annie was badly burnt in an accident as a child, but miraculously survived after spending many months in hospital. She experienced more hardship and loss when both her husband and brother Tom died during WWII. Annie was a testament to overcoming hard times with grace and humour. She had a beauty shop on Douglas St. in Guelph ON for decades. Originally her sister Mary partnered with her, but when she moved away, Annie ran it on her own. In 1995 Annie moved to Lehigh Acres, FL with her third husband, Bob Abell ("Bobbo"). They continued to return to the Abell family cottage just outside Kingston, ON, in the summer for many years. Annie became a fisherman overnight because that was one of Bob's great loves. "When in Rome.." seemed to be Annie's words to live by. She was warm and very funny and beautiful to boot. She enjoyed gambling in all its guises and had amazing luck. We, her nieces, wish some of that had rubbed off on us. We will miss her! Cremation has taken place. Her ashes will be interred in the family plot in Cataraqui Cemetery, Kingston at a later date. Donations to Hospice or a charity of your choice in Annie's memory are appreciated. Mary Ellen, her niece and step-daughter, took care of Dad and Annie the last years of their lives with dedication. The family is grateful for the excellent and kind care Annie received over the last number of years at her care homes in Lehigh and at the end from Hospice. Please share memories with the family on Ann's Page at www.legacy.com

Some of his favourite moments were spent on his island in the company of friends, both two-legged and four. His kind, smiling face and wise words will not be soon forgotten. Friends may call at PINE HILLS CEMETERY & VISITATION CENTRE, 625 Birchmount Rd., Scarborough (north of St. Clair Ave. E., 416-267-8229) for visitation on Thursday, October 15th, from 4 - 8 p.m. Funeral Service will be held on Friday, October 16, 2015 at 11 a.m. with visitation one hour prior.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (182)

ABERNETHY, JAMES WILLIAM September 22, 1958 - December 5, 2019 It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of James (Jim) William Abernethy, after a hard-fought battle with Lymphoma. He passed peacefully and surrounded by family. Jim was loving husband to Cathie; proud father to Jillian, Nicole and Sydney; brother to Janice and Rob (Cynthia); son of Bill and Sue Abernethy; uncle to Madison and Justin Abernethy and James and Alec Baxter; brother-in-law to John and Paul Baxter (Alice Chin); and son-in-law to Virginia Baxter and the late James Baxter. Jim adored his family (including the four-legged members) and we will forever miss the love and laughter he brought to our lives. Born in Calgary and raised in Toronto, Jim attended Victoria Park Secondary School ('77) and Ivey Business School ('82). He quickly completed his Chartered Accountant designation before enjoying a long and successful career at Marsh Canada. After 32 years with the company, Jim retired as C.F.O. in February. He left with many fond memories and even more valued friendships. Although there were many retirement plans unrealized with his early passing, Jim had a full and wonderful life filled with family, friends, travel, sport, and a love of the outdoors. He certainly managed to pack far more than 61 years of adventures into his time with us. His network of cherished friends from school, Marsh, Toronto Athletic Club, St. George's Golf Club and Team Velocity meant the world to him and gave him countless opportunities for mentoring, bantering and of course, storytelling. Memories of Jim holding court sharing one of his many animated stories will help us to smile in the days ahead. Jim was a gifted athlete whose love of sport, especially hockey, began at an early age. As a goaltender, he was a proud member of the M.T.H.L. Don Valley team that won the 1971 Quebec Pee Wee Tournament and in later years he played for the North York Rangers Junior A club. A university hockey injury prevented him from pursuing a career in hockey but did not stifle his love of the game. He continued to play for various league teams and could always be found behind the bench enthusiastically coaching his three girls. Over 20 years ago, Jim began cycling and it quickly became a passion. Each season, he rode with local clubs and prepared for his much-anticipated annual cycle trip to Europe with "the lads". Jim's love of animals led him to become a vegetarian two decades ago and routinely befriend stray dogs wherever he travelled. In this spirit, if a memorial donation is desired, it might be fitting to consider the Toronto Humane Society or Humane Society International. Alternatively, after months of dependence on the blood bank, Jim would have appreciated a donation of blood for those now in need. We will gather together to celebrate Jim's life in the new year. You were taken from us far too soon. Rest in Peace, Jim. We love you forever.

ABLE, CAROL (HUNT) Born September 23, 1935 It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Carol Able passed away peacefully July 1, 2019 at Michael Garron Hospital after a lengthy battle with illnesses, surrounded by family. Carol was predeceased by her husband Charles and her sons Kevin and Rodney. She is survived by her children, Darrell, Todd, Mellanie and Karen, nieces and nephews, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Carol was a true matriarch who put her family, especially her children, first. If you knew Carol, you knew her sense of humour and her quick wit. Carol would tell it to you straight what she thought about any subject and person. "I've earned that right" was one of her favourite sayings. Carol did not want any service or funeral, so the family will have a celebration of her life at a later date.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (220)

ABRAHAM, Catharine Isabel Woodward - October 15, 1912 - December 25, 2011 Beloved mother of Joan Woodward and Patricia Papernick, and dear mother-in-law of David Papernick. Much loved Nana of Ben, Katie and Hannah. Loving wife of the late Dr. H.E. Woodward (1978) and Sheldon Abraham (1990). Isabel spent her early years on her family's farm in Senlac, Saskatchewan and later in Saskatoon, leaving her with an enduring love of the Prairies. Youngest of four daughters of Mary Fidelia and H.O. Wright, her mother was her first piano teacher. Isabel's growing talent then led to her coming east in 1930 to study at the Toronto Conservatory of Music. She earned her Licentiate for piano performance with honours and began teaching as well as accompanying other musicians in concerts. Married in 1941 to Bert Woodward, Isabel continued her studies of piano, organ, and conducting in Montreal and Toronto. Their daughters arrived in 1948 and 1950. By 1950, the family was settled in Leaside and Isabel found herself leading the Girls' Choir at Leaside United Church. Throughout the 50s, the choir competed in the Kiwanis Festival, performed original musical shows, as well as singing for regular church services. A generation of young women absorbed a love of music and song and formed lifelong friendships through the choir. But Isabel saw a chance to impart her knowledge and enthusiasm to a wider audience by teaching music in the schools, and after completing a year at Teachers' College she was hired by the North York Board of Education. In 1960, she began teaching in the music department of Northmount Junior High (now cumme*r Valley Middle School) and eventually became the first woman Chair of a music department in North York. When Newtonbrook Secondary School opened, Isabel became its Head of Music, another first. Over the next few years, hundreds of students absorbed her infectious love of music and, for many, the highlight of the school year was her annual full-scale musical theatre production. Gilbert & Sullivan was suddenly cool! Some of her pupils went on to make music their own career and many of her former students remained in touch right up until her passing. Isabel retired in 1976 to enjoy two years of travel and home life with Bert. Starting in 1979, she also delighted in the arrival of her three grandchildren. Her energy found new outlets in the Toronto Heliconian Club, needlework, handbell choir, volunteering at the CNIB, and more travel. In 1982, while on a Caribbean cruise, she met Sheldon Abraham. They married later that same year and she got much pleasure from joining the extended Abraham family and her new status as a great-granny. As a couple, they enjoyed winter breaks in Scottsdale and San Diego and summers in Woodland Beach until his passing. Isabel moved to the Gibson Retirement Residence in 1992 and was still living there on Christmas Day. Predeceased by her beloved older sisters, Mildred Paul, Esther Sutherland and Edna Jewett. She is survived by her Woodward, Papernick and Abraham families and many nieces, nephews and dear friends. The funeral will take place on Friday, January 6, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. in the CHURCH OF OUR SAVIOUR, 1 Laurentide Drive, Don Mills (York Mills/DVP). The family request that instead of flowers you consider a donation in memory of Isabel to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario, 2300 Yonge Street, Suite 1300, Box No. 2414, Toronto M4P 1E4 or the Heliconian Hall Foundation, 35 Hazelton Avenue, Toronto M5R 2E3.

Patricia ABRAHAM(nee CAMACHO)On January 27, 2017, Patricia Abraham (Mrs.), mother of Diana and Anne Abraham, Grandma of Alexandra Abraham-Mertens and Great-grandma of Ivy Anne Abraham De Vos, left this earth to be with her angels in heaven. Peacefully and just 6 months shy of her 99th birthday, Aunty Pat (as she was known by so many), joined her beloved husband Arthur and children Desmond, Elizabeth, Alexander, Christine, Marcelle, Joan Margaret and Marie Louise - who tragically predeceased her in Guyana in 1964 and have been awaiting her for 50 years - with whom she longed to be reunited. Pat's siblings Gladys DeFreitas, Sonny Camacho, Ena Correia, Ivan and Frankie Camacho will also be welcoming her for a great big heavenly gathering. A devout parishioner of St. Joan of Arc Church for over 45 years, an avid bridge player and lover of a good scotch and ginger; Mrs. Abraham was forever laughing, loved singing and always generous with her prayer that "God Bless" everyone she met. We will miss her immensely. A Mass and celebration of Pat's life will be held in the summer.

ABRAHAM, Edna Mildred May 4, 1918 – November 24, 2017 With great sadness we announce Edna's passing, just 5 months short of her 100th birthday. Her loss is deeply mourned by her son Bernard, his wife Ann-Louise and grandchildren Michelle and Robin. She was born in Georgetown, Guyana, to Arthur and Edna Abraham. Edna went on to lead a busy life, juggling roles as breadwinner, mother, hockey player and trade union activist. After all but one of her siblings had left Guyana, Edna also selflessly took on the role of carer for her parents and brother until they died. She later joined her twin sister Phyllis in Burlington, Ontario. They eventually moved in Toronto and when Phyllis' health began to fail, Edna was her devoted companion until her death in 2011. Edna was always optimistic and positive in her outlook and will also be remembered for her fortitude and endurance in the face of adversity and for her love and tenderness as a carer. She will be greatly missed.

ABRAHAM, Anne Alexis January 18, 1944 - March 30, 2018 On Good Friday 2018 Anne Alexis Abraham, sister of Diana Abraham, aunt of Alexandra Abraham-Mertens and great-aunt of Ivy Anne and Ella Norah Patricia Abraham De Vos, left us to be reunited with her mother Patricia Abraham, who predeceased her in 2017, her father Arthur and siblings Desmond, Elizabeth, Alexander, Christine, Marcelle, Joan Margaret and Marie Louise Abraham, who tragically predeceased her in Guyana in 1964. Anne, who took early retirement after a successful career with Bell Canada 'to play golf', was in her last years heartbreakingly debilitated by the painful consequences of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) and Systemic Lupus which she had battled for over 25 years. Her stoicism and unimaginable strength in the face of her suffering were a marvel to the many who knew and cared for her, as was her determination to not be defeated by the cruel hand which she had been dealt. We are thankful that in her last days Anne was surrounded by a family of relatives and friends and the sounds of her great-nieces who made her smile. We are also grateful to the wonderful team of caregivers at the Terrace, New Horizons Tower, who sympathetically cared for our beloved sister and aunt. Anne will be remembered for her generosity, humility, dry sense of humour, straight-talking, brilliant brain and enjoyment of food. She was truly one of a kind and her departure leaves a deep sadness in the hearts of all those who loved her. A celebration of her adventurous spirit and courage will be held in July.

Patricia "Patti" Lynn Abraham passed away peacefully, on May 4, 2021, after her battle with stage 4 cancer. She will be remembered by all for her contagious positive attitude and optimism, no matter the situation. Patti is survived by her mother Josephine (William Scott), brother Richard (Susan), sister Joanne Farrell (Patrick), her nieces and nephew Nicholas (Jena), Allison, Stephanie (Christopher), Jennifer, and Patricia (Stephen), and her great-nephew and niece Leon and Annie. She was like a mother to Sara Papaleo and Tayta to Delilah. Patti was born on July 19, 1958 in Toronto to Earl and Josephine (Bardwell) Abraham. She was an alumni of Banksome Hall, Camp Oconto, and graduated from the University of Western Ontario. The majority of her career was spent with Central Graphics and the Eastwood family. Patti brought so much energy, joy, and dynamism to work every day that rubbed off on employees and customers alike. At every sales meeting they would hand out the Sales Rep of the Month award and it became a running joke as Patti won 9 out of 12 months for years running. It became the "Patti Award". Patti retired in 2018 and since that time found joy in travelling the world, cooking, her daily walks by the lake, and spending time with her family, friends, and neighbours. She was known for her never negative, always smiling spirit; she was a vivacious personality that could light up any room she entered. Patti's outgoing personality was most apparent in her ability to meet and befriend nearly anyone she encountered. She was incredibly loving, compassionate, and always willing to help. Patti was loved and cherished by her family and by all those whose lives she was a part of and will be truly missed. She will be remembered in a private Memorial Service on May 8, 2021. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (247)

ABRAM, ALVIN May 11, 1936 - August 26, 2021 Big Al has left the building. Born May 11, 1936, in Toronto to Herman (of Moldova) and Annie (of Romania) Abramovitz, our father Alvin Abram was larger than life. Devoted husband to Marilyn for 60 years. Loving father to Lisa (Mark), Lori (Phil) and Jason (Sandra). Zaida to Ally, Skyler and Ryan, and step- grandfather to Samantha and Daniel. Brother to Morton (Cayla) Abram and the late Murray (Margaret) Abrams. Our father's childhood dream to be a journalist was cut short due to the untimely death of his father when Alvin was 18, but he apprenticed in a print shop and that became his life's work. Imbued with a passion for many things, including a good argument and a love of words, he leaves behind a list of great one-liners including "My assets are tied up in liabilities," and "Rich or poor, it's good to have money." Alvin built up a successful printing business for many decades, and eventually tried his hand at being an art gallery owner with a storefront in North York, driving across the country selling his wares as an auctioneer. Our parents spent a lifetime involved in community work and dedicated their volunteer time to many Jewish causes and organizations, locally and abroad. When our father mustered the courage to go back to school, he attended university, and took creative writing courses. It led to a joyful period of creativity for him, publishing numerous award-winning fiction novels and short stories, in addition to authorized biographies. Knowing our dad, he would have wanted the last words: "Nothing runs smoothly. Each crisis made us aware we were a team. What is love but another word for respect. I for Marilyn, she for me. When trouble brews, we compromise. There are things I recognize that Marilyn is better suited for than I and once I recognized that she wasn't only my wife, she was my partner, there was no limit either of us could attain." We wish to thank Dr. Cheng for his care and friendship with our father over the years, cardiologist Dr. Hansen, and Michelle Sadiklar for her community care support of our mother since our father's health began to decline at the start of the pandemic. Alvin was appreciative of the many close friendships he had that stood the test of time, and in particular, our father cherished the long- standing friendship of his former business partner, Dennis Rowe. Private service and shiva to take place. If you wish, please donate to Beth David Synagogue http://www.bethdavid.com or 437-770-2302.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (309)

ACCINELLI, ROBERT Early on July 3, 2019, Bob (Robert) Accinelli died of metastatic bladder cancer. He left this world on his own terms citing "I'm ready -Curtain Down", just as he lived life with love, humour and wisdom. Many will remember his insights in U.S. politics, which were much needed of late, and of interest these past few years was gerrymandering. He was always up for a friendly political debate. He loved live music and theatre. He was generous of time and spirit and believed strongly in the importance of philanthropy particularly of the arts (Vanier College Productions) and PBS which he watched faithfully. Bob was an avid walker, cyclist and hiker. He traveled extensively including Iqaluit, Nunavut, as well as various destinations in Asia, East Europe; his last two big trips were Turkey and Ireland. At the yearly Accinelli tree-trimming event with family and friends, he became infamous at charades. Near his retirement Bob became a dedicated student of Italian at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, a group of friends he still met for lunches. Bob was an active contributor at the Academy for Lifelong Learning at Knox College, University of Toronto and more recently he joined Democrats & Donuts. With each activity, Bob would become part of a new community that was richer for his presence. Bob was born and raised in San Francisco and educated in parochial schools. He obtained a B.A. in history from Santa Clara University, where he graduated Suma Cum Laude and was class valedictorian. He then went on to complete his master and Ph.D. history degrees from UC Berkeley, where he met his wife Nancy, and made lifelong friends. In 1965, he joined the History Department at U of T; he loved teaching there until his retirement. He was a respected scholar, an accomplished teacher, and for a time, President of the Canadian Association of American Studies. Preceded by his wife Nancy, he leaves behind his two children, daughter Francesca (Michel) and son Adrian (Andrea). Bob was a proud grandfather of Elodie, James, Bixente and Juliet. Much loved brother to Lena Garbarino (Fiore) and the late Edward Chiappari (Lori), and uncle to Ron, Julie and Joe (deceased). Bob was also very fond of his sister-in-law Trish (Dian), who was truly a kindred spirit for him. He was kind and gentle with a subtle but wonderful sense of humour. He will be missed. Our hearts are full. All are welcome to gather on Thursday, July 11, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. to share memories and express condolences until 3:00 p.m., when a Celebration of Life will be held at R.S. Kane Funeral Home, 6150 Yonge St., Toronto, ON, Canada M2M 3W9. (www.rskane.ca).

DANIEL BRUCE ACHEN It is with profound sadness that his family announces the sudden passing of Daniel (Dan) Achen. Our dear Dan died suddenly while playing hockey on March 15, 2010 at the age of 51. Dan leaves behind his beloved son Riley, the joy of his life. Dan was so very proud of Ry, and Ry considered Dan not just to be a dad but also to be a close friend. He also leaves to mourn his mother Phyllis, his siblings Norm (Linda), Lynda (John), Boo (Gord) and Jane (Joe) and the love of his life Maggie Dee and her son Chazz. Nieces and nephews Linden (Colette), Kelsey (Mark), Ben (Liz), Leslie (Afie), Robin, Peter (Laurel) and Graham and great-nieces and nephews Linden, Audrey and Todd. And also Riley's mom Judy Donnelly. Dan was predeceased by his father Linden, his brother John and his nephew Donald. Dan grew up in Regina, SK, but set out for Hamilton in his early 20's. That is where he found his passion in the music industry. As someone said, 'He simply followed the music wherever it led him.' During his career he was a founding member of a number of bands and played lead guitar for Junkhouse in the 90's. Dan became a Record Producer with Catherine North Studio, later becoming its Owner, where he recorded and produced acts from across Canada and abroad. Music was his life. He loved his job. We should all be so lucky. Anyone who knew Dan knew that he did everything with passion: making music, playing hockey, parenting and living life. We love you Danno - you have left a huge hole in our hearts. Friends are invited to the DODSWORTH & BROWN FUNERAL HOME - ROBINSON CHAPEL (King St. E. and Wellington, 905-522-2496) on Monday, March 22 from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, March 23 at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph's Church (260 Herkimer St., Hamilton).

She never forgot a birthday, or a name, or a dog's name. Wife, mother, homemaker, friend: Bonnie calmly excelled at them all.

HERMANN OTTO ACKERMANN On Saturday, June 25, 2011 at Lee Manor, Owen Sound, in his 78th year. Dearest husband of Bernice. Predeceased by his first wife Julie. Cherished father of Monica (Kevin), Hermann and Robert (Glennis). Much loved Grandpa to Gabriel, Allegra, Lukas, Sydney, and Alex. Stepfather of D'Arcy (Emily), Bruce, Elizabeth (Rick) and Ian. Stepgrandpa to Kathryn, David, Andrew, Maria, William, Sophie and Nina. Brother of Hans, Hugo, Gretti and Peter in Switzerland. Hermann worked as Executive Pastry Chef at the Toronto Airport Hilton and was a founding member of the Ontario Pastry Chef's Guild. He spent his retirement years in Owen Sound, known as the Swiss Chocolatier. His years as a member of the Kiwanis Club of Owen Sound were highlighted with a Fellowship Award from Kiwanis International. Hermann was cherished by those who knew him. And not simply because he made the best truffles found anywhere this side of the Atlantic. Hermann exuded an appreciation of life that was infectious. He was enchanted by beauty in all its forms. He painted and sculpted the beauty he saw in nature, he crafted beauty out of chocolate, and he treated others as though they were something beautiful. Something special. He will be greatly missed. A celebration of Hermann's life will be held at St. George's Anglican Church, 1049 4th Ave. E., Owen Sound, on Thursday, June 30th at 2 p.m. A visitation to be held one hour prior to the service, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Kiwanis Music Festival, the Georgian Bay Symphony Foundation or St. George's Church would be appreciated.

ACS, AMALIA (MOLLY) Peacefully, on May 18, 2020, Amalia (Molly) Acs, 83, from Mansfield, Ontario, passed away with the love of her life, Franz (Frank) at her side and her family close by. Beloved Wife of Frank, Mother to Frankie (deceased 2018), Peter (Cathy) and Christine (Austin) Boake, Grandmother to Gifford, Markie and Terra; Caitlin and Bailey; Jessica, Timothy, Heather. Great-Grandmother to Amalia (Molly); Greyson and Asher. Born on a rural farm in Austria, the youngest of 9 children, Amalia met Frank in Vienna working in the vineyards on the hillside overlooking the Danube River. Frank made the journey to Canada and promised to send for her. He kept that promise and she set sail to reunite with him in Toronto, one year later. The Pine River Chalets at the base of Mansfield Ski Club became Amalia's home, where she loved to be with her children and grandchildren. From her love of skiing, yodelling and ringing cowbells at club races, she became "Oma" to all who knew her. Amalia was passionate about golfing, gardening and sewing. Cooking was her pride and joy, often singing and dancing in the kitchen as she created incredible family meals of goulash and dumplings, cabbage rolls, schnitzel and apple strudel. Amalia had captivating, bright blue eyes and her soft hands touched countless hearts. Even through her many battles, Amalia never gave up and amazed so many with her courage and determination to endure. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Nurses and staff at Campbell House in Collingwood. Your love and kindness gave us the strength to overcome these particularly difficult times - holding our loved one when we could not. A private family funeral will take place on May 26, 2020 in Mansfield, with a celebration of life hosted at a later date. Donations in Amalia's honour to The Hospice Georgian Triangle Foundation are appreciated: 240 Erie Street, Collingwood, ON L9Y 0X8, www.hospicegeorgiantriangle.com.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (396)

ACTON, ROBERT (BOB) GIDEON July 12, 1934 - March 26, 2021 We are saddened to announce the peaceful passing of Robert (Bob) Acton, on March 26, 2021, at Michael Garron Hospital. Bob is survived by his wife Elayne, and his children Robert (Andrea) and LeeAnn, and beloved granddaughter, Audrey Jude. A proud, lifelong Beacher, Bob attended Malvern Collegiate and then Danforth Tech. He played football for the Balmy Beach Club, which was the farm team for the Toronto Argos in the 1950's, and was drafted by the Toronto Argos, and then to the Ottawa Roughriders. After his football career ended, Bob worked for the City of Toronto as a draftsman before forging a path as a business executive in the construction industry where he served as President for Canadian Patent Scaffolding for over twenty-five years. A sports fanatic, Bob was a member of the Balmy Beach Club and the Scarboro Golf and Country Club. He served on Scarboro's Captain's Committee and the Board of Directors, serving as the President in the early 1990's. The tall tales of all the rounds of golf "Action Acton" had with his golfing cronies were as legendary as the club pours of scotch they enjoyed on the veranda at Scarboro after their rounds. But the rounds he treasured the most were the ones walking up the 18th fairway beside his son, his namesake, Robert. Bob and Elayne's love story and marriage of 54 years was one filled with passion. As mom fondly recalls "life with your Dad was never boring", and how could it be? Talk about opposites attract - Dad was an Irish Protestant from the Beach who fell head over heels for Elayne, an Italian Catholic from West Hill. Who could have imagined a chance meeting on Ashland Avenue in 1965 would have created this love story for the ages, "The Way We Were". Never one to back down from a challenge, Dad battled and beat cancer not once, not twice, but three times. Pancreatic cancer should have taken him in 1977, but his will to live to see his children grow up, and to keep his promise to grow old with Elayne was a testament that he forever beat the odds. Coming out of the recovery room in 2003 after this last battle, we were reminded once again of his fighting Irish spirit and his humour as he told us he had "scored a hat-trick" against cancer. Dad truly embodied our family motto of Carpe Diem. Always reminding us and those around him whom he loved to seize every moment life offers you, whether it's good or bad. Whenever presented with a challenge or opportunity, he would always remind us "no matter what, you play the hand that life deals you." We fondly remember all the Acton family road trips to Hilton Head Island in the minivan with Willy Nelson's "On the Road Again" starting every voyage. After twenty-five years vacationing on Hilton Head Island, Bob and Elayne's next journey took them to Bobcaygeon with the purchase of a beautiful log home affectionately known as The River. Here they enjoyed retirement and twenty glorious years of cigars, sunsets and red wine overlooking Emily Creek. The River brought dad another one of his most treasured family members, his four-legged "boy", Tank. For the 12 years he was by dad's side, our beloved chocolate lab filled dad's life with wet kisses, sandy beaches and unconditional love. Tank was his pride and joy, as Dad loved nothing more than lighting up an hour-long Cuban cigar, loading Tank into the van, and walking along the Beach with his boy. We are comforted knowing they are now reunited together, walking together along the Beach once again. Bob will be missed by all his extended family of nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters in law as well as all the friends he made in his 86-year journey of living life to the fullest. The family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the caring and compassionate staff at Chester Village and Michael Garron Hospital. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Bob's life will be held at a later date.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (406)

ADACHI, JONATHON JUNJI Jonathon Junji Adachi born on June 27, 1929 in Woodfibre, BC, passed peacefully on October 4, 2018. He was the third of 5 sons born to Harue and Shoichi f*ckumoto. Predeceased by wife Louise Teruko and his 4 brothers Wally, Kaz, Koji and Shin. Father to Rick (Karen), Margaret (Bill), David (Marilyn) and Diana (Stewart). His childhood years were spent in Woodfibre until the war broke out with his family being split up and placed in stables at the Pacific National Exhibition prior to being transferred to the Tashme internment camp. These were difficult years with his family being housed in little more than tar paper shacks. He and his brothers made the best of the circ*mstance and they treated the experience as an adventure. We never recall any bitterness being expressed about the experience. After the war his family was moved out east to Hamilton. There he went to Westdale High School. During his years in high school he helped out his family by living as a houseboy with a generous family, caring for the children of the house, babysitting and preparing meals. After completing high school he became an auto mechanic. He married our mother on September 18, 1954. Shortly after they had 4 children. As children growing up he was a great father. He taught us strong family values and the importance of being supportive of each other. Dad was hard working often holding 2 jobs to support his family. Even though we didn't have much money we never felt deprived and never wanted for anything. Dad had a way with kids and students. In the community that we grew up in, he would often take us out to play softball. There he saw some kids jumping up and down on the baseball screen, trying to break it. Dad got them down and shortly thereafter started the local softball league. In its heyday there were 40 teams and 600 children participating in the league that he started. Dad started his working life as an auto mechanic. Afterwards he changed careers and became a high school teacher. He was a respected teacher and had a way of communicating with his students. After graduating from his class, Dad always made sure that his students had apprenticeships. For many he was like a family member, attending many weddings and being called to offer advice. In the years when he was failing he had students that would come by to visit with him and to reminisce about days gone by. Dad loved his grandchildren and their partners Marcy (Andrew), Erin (Scott), Chris (Sara), Paul (Ashlynn), Stephen (Julie), Sarah (Mike), Lucas and Kira. While he never really got to know his great-grandchildren, all 7 boys, James, Charlie, Kyle, William, Michael, Reid and Mason, would bring a twinkle to his eyes when he would see them. We often thought that he would have liked to start a baseball or basketball team with them. Dad will be missed by many but never forgotten. Cremation has taken place, a private family memorial will be held at a later date.

Ted had many long-time family and friends - Carsten and Linda, Jason and Angela, Emily and Mark, Carol and John, his sister Dianne, his sister-in-law Casey, Tony and Kelly, Colleen, Bea, and many more than can be mentioned. If you were Ted's friend, it was for life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Hospital for Sick Children.

ADAIR, Trayton Joseph In Loving Memory Trayton Joseph Adair, born February 19, 1941, passed away at the age of 79 on August 19, 2020 at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto, ON. Loving husband of Bette (nee Nagel) for 58 years. Dear father of Douglas (Catherine) and Debra. Beloved grandfather of Dylan (Cassidy) and Caylea. Loving great-grandfather to Jaxon. He was predeceased by his father, Douglas Stephen, and his mother Maude (nee O'Leary). In Trayton's lifetime, he was also happy to connect with his eldest daughter Sharon Battersby (Art). Whether Trayton was delivering the Leader Post, washing cars at the car wash, playing for the Regina Pats amateur hockey team, or training with the RCAF, he greeted each challenge with enthusiasm. He finally found his niche in the field of advertising, acquainting himself in all aspects of the business amongst stimulating minds and eventually favoured directing and producing in the commercial area. Under the name "Trayton Adair Productions" he created a memorable body of multi award-winning commercials. He would often remark: "It sure beats working!" Of course, we knew it was hard work, but he simply loved what he did. Beyond his career, Trayton's other passions and great joys in life included his family and friends, getting out on the water in his boat, as well as escaping the city life here and there to create many wonderful memories at his and Bette's cottage in Prince Edward County. Granddaughter Caylea so aptly described him as "a man with complexities, and an intricate mind, whose life could fill a book, a story to be told." We are grateful that we, as a family, were able to share in the richness of his life. Cremation is taking place with a private family gathering to be held at a later time. Many thanks to all who have offered kind and loving thoughts, and care to Trayton as he faced his last challenge. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St. Michael's Hospital or to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.

<![CDATA[Toronto Star Obits: Obituaries]]> (444)

ADAMAKIS, Lillian We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved Lillian Adamakis. She was whisked away from us in a sudden accident this past week. Lillian was a force of nature. Passionate, caring and loving. Her zest for life was immeasurable. Always giving of herself and always an advocate for others. She took care of everyone in her life, always putting them first. She loved animals, especially her two kitty cats. She loved travel and spent much of her time in Greece, where her heritage dates back to and where she had friends who were like family. In fact, she had many close friends that she considered her family. She also had many close cousins whom she grew up with in Quebec City and spent summers with in Cacouna and at Lake Simcoe. Her other favourite place was San Miguel de Allende, where she could practice her Spanish. She was a fabulous cook and had a real taste for good wine. Lillian's laugh was infectious and she was always your best audience! After returning from a few years abroad with her partner, Steen, whom she met in Australia, Lillian entered the world of Real Estate. She built a fabulous career in Toronto's East end and is considered by all those who ever sat across the table from her or had the opportunity to learn from her a true Real Estate Rock Star! Lillian was passionate about giving back within her community as well as with a broader initiative called The Hunger Project. She was dedicated to supporting women and the end to world hunger. Lillian was gorgeous, vivacious and full of life and will be greatly missed by everyone whose life she touched. As one of her myriad of friends said, she was a firecracker. She gave us decades of joy, love, loyalty and opinions! She enriched the lives of her family: Steen, Tasi and Norm, Stacey and Matt, Adrienne and Aly, Courtney and Ruairi, Ari and Dora; her adored "grandchildren": Maddy, Jacob, Weston, Jules, Elias, and Tommy. She left us heartbroken and grieving. The Universe had a better plan for her.
