BIDWELL, Norma Rae (Clausen) Bidwell Obituary | Print |

BIDWELL, Norma Rae (nee Clausen) -

Bidwell_NormaPassed away peacefully at Hampton Terrace Care Centre on November 20, 2014 in her 99th year.

For more than 63 years she was the beloved wife of Frederick Bidwell who predeceased her in 1997.

Norma was the loving mother of Dr. Peter (Maureen Crawford), Paul (Julie Hampel), and Matthew (Cathy Lorimer) and was predeceased by a young daughter, Michaella and a son James.

Her grandchildren included Martin, Timothy, Diana, Jeremy, Grant, Mark, Medbh, Michael and Megan and she was the proud great-grandmother of Corrie, Misha, Amy, Benjamin, Annalee, Fergus, Alistair, Colm, Stella, Caitlyn, Dylan, Abigail, Alex, Ryan, Aiden and Alexandra.

For many years Norma loved summer holidays at the family cottage on Lake Muskoka (the house that Fred built), especially when it was crowded with her large family and friends, and with constant cooking and cheerful noise. In Muskoka, she and Fred enjoyed boating over to the Church of the Kettles for Sunday services. In Burlington, the Bidwells were longtime faithful members of East Plains United Church.

Born July 9, 1915, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan to Ted and Lucille Clausen, Norma grew up with her sisters Naomi and Glendine and her brother Dale. Having married Fred and moved to Hamilton, Ontario in 1934, she attended McMaster University and was later inducted into its alumni as well as being awarded an honorary LLD in 2008. Four years later, she was named one of “125 people of impact” when McMaster celebrated its 125th anniversary.

She had started her long journalistic career by writing stories for CBC radio and for various magazines. Then, in 1951 she was hired as a district correspondent in the Burlington-Aldershot area for the Hamilton Spectator, later joining the Women’s Department and becoming its food editor until her retirement in 1980, after having won numerous awards for her investigative reporting and travelling to Spain, Denmark, Italy and England chasing food stories.

After retirement, she began writing her popular Spectator column, “Norma’s Stoveline,” answering countless readers’ questions and providing hundreds of cooking tips. In retirement, she also published two cookbooks as well as “Lifelines and Deadlines,” an account of her various adventures in juggling family life with the demands of a daily newspaper. The University of Guelph library now holds her papers in its Archival and Special Collections.

A Funeral Service will be held Friday, November 28th at 10:30 am at East Plains United Church, 375 Plains Road East, Burlington.

In lieu of flowers, contributions towards The Church of The Kettles Restoration Fund (Lake Muskoka, ON) would be greatly appreciated. Please send to the attention of: Mr. Doug Jarrett, 207 Windy Lane, RR #4 Markdale, ON N0C 1H0.

FROIS, Gil De Melo Frois Obituary | Print |

FROIS, Gil De Melo -

Frois_GilIt is with great sadness that our family announces the peaceful passing of Gil De Melo Frois on November 19, 2014 with the comfort of his children and wife by his side after a courageous battle with stomach cancer.

Gil was born March 23, 1929 in Sao Miguel, Acores, Portugal.
He was married to Maria Ines Baptista Frois for almost 57 years. Together they enjoyed a long lasting marriage complete with love, loyalty, mutual respect and enough memories to last a lifetime. Their union was indescribable and the spark they shared was evident even in his last moments.

They immigrated to Toronto, Canada in June 1964 to start a new journey and build a better life for their family. He was a hard working man and loved by many co-workers at the Law Society of Upper Canada where he retired after 30 years as a chef steward.

Gil was a father and friend to his children Frank and his wife Bernadette (Sousa), Vera and her husband Joe Da Cunha, the late Anabela and Emanuel and his wife Karen (Power). He was not only a provider to his family but also a mentor. He may have been a man of few words but he never ceased the opportunity for a classic one liner.

Gil was most proud of his title as Avo. The love he had for his grandkids was unmistakeable and he will forever be missed and cherished by Michelle Frois-Da Cunha, Lindsay Campacci and her husband Anthony, Bryan Frois, Chantelle De Couto and her husband David, Vanessa Da Cunha, Eryca, Reanna and Aaron Frois and his great-granddaughters Ariyanna and Niya. He could often be found asking them how school and work was and beaming with pride as he watched them grow into themselves. He was the type of Avo who would attend their Christmas concerts, recitals, hockey games, volunteer for school trips and without fail have a sweet marie chocolate bar or ice cream awaiting them after school.

His attitude and spirit was never broken by the cancer he fought and although his body became weaker, his mind and love for his family never deteriorated. Gil will be fondly remembered by his only remaining sibling, Maria do Rosario Do Couto, in-laws, many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and neighbours. He meant the world to his family and he will live on in their hearts and memories.

Arrangements out of Oakville. Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Angels Roman Catholic Church, 61 Jutland Road, Toronto on Monday, November 24th at 10:00 a.m. Burial to follow in Oakville.

In an effort to honour Gil's wishes, in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or provide his wife with donations for masses in his honour.


KOSTURIK, Milan John Kosturik Obituary | Print |

KOSTURIK, Milan John -

Kosturik_Milan(1936 - 2014) - It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Milan John Kosturik on November 19, 2014.

He will be forever missed by his loving wife of 53 years, Goldie (nee Szeman), sons Michael (Wendy), Mark (Angela), and Frank (Carol), and by his loving grandchildren Elizabeth, Carolyn, Mark Jr., Julianna, Lauren, Sarah, Andrea, and Nea.

Born October 23, 1936 in the village of Podkonice, Slovakia to Michal and Helen Kosturik, Milan left "the old country" for Canada at the age of one, where he grew up in Niagara Falls, Ontario. After completing high school Milan went on to earn a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Buffalo.

He began his career with Norton Abrasives in Chippewa, Ontario before moving on to the telecommunications world in 1970 with Northern Electric in Bramalea, Ontario. He forged many lifelong friendships with colleagues and coworkers and kept in touch with many following his retirement in 1996.

He was especially proud to be Vice President of Quality at Northern Telecom at a time of huge change as we entered the digital world. This role allowed him the opportunity to travel the world with Goldie and gain countless fond memories.

Most important to Milan, however, was family - both immediate and extended. To his immediate family he was Papa and his affection for his grandchildren was genuine and complete. To his extended family he cherished each and every moment spent with his cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

His infectious personality and love of family landed him the title "President for Life" of his extended K-Cousins family, a role he took as seriously as any other. He couldn't wait to attend each and every family reunion which have been held every two years since 1980 which from Wisconsin to Quebec and most places in between.

Milan will always be remembered as a kind and gentle soul, an eternal optimist with a huge heart, and great compassion for others. Papa, you will dearly missed and in our hearts forever.

Memorial Donations to Canadian Diabetes Association or Kidney Foundation would be appreciated by the family.

Funeral Mass will be held Saturday, November 22nd at 10:30 a.m. at Saint Andrew Catholic Church, 47 Reynolds St., Oakville.

Bob grew up in St. Catharines, attended high school in Montreal and studied civil engineering at University of New Brunswick before earning his Masters in transportation engineering and planning. He returned to Burlington where he turned his creative mind into a career that successfully merged transportation, logistics and his love of computers. Bob transitioned his start-up IT consulting business into a lengthy career full of innovative accomplishments as Chief Information Officer with Speedy Transport in Brampton.

As a young man Bob’s zest for active participation in hockey, baseball, football, golf and curling, gradually transformed into coaching peewee baseball in Burlington and later supporting his own his sons’ soccer and football teams in Oakville. He launched the Oakville Titans Football Team in 2009 and led them to the South Central Ontario Football League “AAA” Jr. Varsity Championship in their inaugural year.
