GULENCHYN, John Gulenchyn - Obituary | Print |

GULENCHYN, John -

 

Gulenchyn_John(January 26, 1919 - March 3, 2015)

 

The sixth child of Ukrainian emigrants Nicholas Gulenchyn and Anne Zawada, John Gulenchyn was born in a homestead cabin on a frigid Manitoba winter day near Elma.

The family moved in 1921, eventually settling in Lakeview Gardens, Cedardale (later Oshawa) where they and others struggled for economic certainty through the days of the depression.  John saw education and training as the way to secure his future and he completed high school at OCVI and a tool and die apprenticeship.

His entry to the workforce was interrupted by service in WWII where his skills secured a non-commissioned officer rank, supervising the operations of the engine room in ships deployed all over the Atlantic. He volunteered for service in the Pacific, but the surrender of Japan lead to his safe return to Oshawa, and his waiting bride Olga Saychook.

John and Olga were married in 1946 and completed their family with two children, Karen and John. John and Olga’s work ethic and frugality secured a bright future for their family. In his spare time, John’s interest in nature led to many hunting and fishing trips with friends, and the construction of a vacation home on Redstone Lake that the family enjoyed for many years.

The principles by which he lived continue to echo through the generations that succeed him and mourn his passing.  His wife Olga, daughter Karen and husband Gerry Lynes, son John and wife Pam, and youngest sister, Helen Hruska, survive John.  His grandchildren and their spouses, Emily Lynes and Aaron Schooler, Meredith Lynes and Robert Gora, Alison Lynes and Troy Ginter, Nick Gulenchyn and Madeline Gulenchyn have been fortunate to have the opportunity to visit their Gigi and Baba on many occasions, and they, in turn are blessed to have respectful and devoted grandchildren.

This past year, John was delighted to welcome great grandson and namesake, Jack Gora. Brothers Peter, Paul, Nick and Bill and sisters Mary Bilenduke, Kay Gulenchyn, Rose Harmer, and Anne Sobil predeceased John.

The family is grateful for the expert care provided by the staff of Ward G5 at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.

Friends may call at the MOUNT LAWN FUNERAL HOME & CEMETERY, 21 Garrard Rd., Whitby (N of Hwy 2), 905-443-3376, on Sunday, March 8th from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:30 p.m. in the chapel.

As an expression of sympathy, donations to Lakeridge Health Foundation or CHARITY of Choice would be appreciated by the family

BROOKINGS, Hillary Gibbings Brookings - Obituary | Print |

BROOKINGS, Hillary Gibbings (House) -   "Express Condolences"

Brookings_Hillary(December 20, 1926 - February 25, 2015)

Of Whitby Ontario, died Wednesday February 25, 2015.

She was born to the late Lillian and Arthur House, December 20, 1926, in Illfracombe North Devon, England.

 She married the late John Murdoch in 1948. They lived in England and Wales before John’s untimely death in 1955. Shortly thereafter, Hillary and her two children and soon to be born third child left Wales and moved to Canada in July 1956. They settled in Essex County Ontario.

Hillary was a Registered Nurse until she retired in 1983 and was passionate about making a difference in the lives of her patience and colleagues.  Hillary worked as a nurse in Essex County until 1971. During that time she was instrumental in establishing a union for Public Health nurses in Ontario.

In 1971 Hillary and her youngest child moved to Newfoundland. Hillary remarried in 1972 to Jack Brookings. They resided in Green’s Harbour, Trinity Bay.

Hillary worked at Hoyles Home, Old Perlican Cottage Hospital, before settling in at Markland Cottage Hospital where she would eventually become the hospital’s Charge Nurse. Hillary believed nurses deserved better working conditions and wages and was instrumental in establishing 12 hour shifts for nurses in the province. As well she and her husband Jack, along with a number of friends, took their love for the Newfoundland pony and created the organization Save the Newfoundland Pony.

Hillary was also an artist. She loved to sketch and paint anything related to nature; she helped create the Markland Cottage Hospital Christmas float each year, including making costumes.  She and her husband, Jack, loved gardening — everything from vegetables, berry bushes, holly, and flowers. They enjoyed long walks with their dogs, along the rocky ocean shore outside their home and through the woods behind their house. They had many pets, including a Newfoundland pony, which brought them both years of much love and joy.  Hillary continued to reside in Green’s Harbour following her husband’s death on November 30, 1994. She left Green’s Harbour in October 2005 and moved to Corner Brook, NL with her daughter Wendy.

They remained there until they moved to Whitby, ON in 2008. Hillary continued to live with her daughter until 2011, at which time she became a resident of The Village of Taunton. She resided there until her passing.

Hillary is survived by two children Wendy and Peter Murdoch of Ontario. Her eldest child, Shirley Murdoch passed away on November 13, 2010. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Rebecca Murdoch-Skiffington (Bradley); Adam Murdoch (Jen Davis); Sarah Murdoch (Bill Wightman); David Murdoch and three great-grandchildren, Callie, Addison and Emma.

In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations be made to the Newfoundland Pony Association.

Memorial donations may be made through OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME, 847 King Street West (905-721-1234).
