GOREJKO, Olga 'Oli' (Drozdowskyj) Gorejko Obituary | Print |

GOREJKO, Olga 'Oli' (Drozdowskyj) -

Gorejko_Olga_Oli(October 16, 1946 – February 6, - 2015)

"Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest." ~ (Ecclesiastes 9:10)

Oli could not overcome the complications of Stage IV breast cancer after struggling with this disease for almost three years. Our admiration and deepest gratitude to the nursing staff and doctors of the Oncology Clinic at Scarborough General Hospital for their kindness and consideration during this ordeal.

She lived a life without guile or pretense, and never wavered from her moral compass. As a teacher, guide, and advocate she searched for practical answers, and avoided finding fault. Her daughters, Natalie, Adriana, and Larrisa were her focus and delight. These three young women are contributors to society because their mother led through positive example.

As the true heart of the family, Oli was a faithful and constant help-mate to her husband Luby. A dutiful daughter-in-law, she earned the love and respect of both Stefan (2003) and Anna who regarded Oli as their own daughter. Her calm personality invited many to confide in her, and their trust was not misplaced. She took pleasure in simple things, and said she had no need of a bucket list.

Born in a refugee camp in Arolsen, Germany, Oli was a child of the Ukrainian diaspora of WW II. Her parents Ivan (John) and Anna immigrated to Buffalo, N.Y. searching for a better life. Predeceased by her brother William (2009), the successes of his children: Julia, and Nicholas, were a source of special pride for her. Oli leaves numerous cousins in both Ukraine and Germany.

Oli became spiritually independent, and practiced an ethic of reciprocity and her optimism about people never ceased. She was to the very end a decent human being.

"Vichnaya Pamyat" (Forever in our Memory)

Cremation will follow a private family ceremony. Arrangements out of Scarborough. Friends are invited to celebrate the life of this cherished soul on Sunday, February 22nd, 2015 at the family home from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to Scarborough General Hospital – Oncology Clinic may be made.

IVEY, Martha Evelyn Sophia 'Marty' (nee Karna) -

Ivey_Martha_MartyPassed away peacefully on Friday, February 6, 2015 in her 93rd year after a long decline due to Alzheimer’s.

Beloved mother to Charles Ivey (Katrine), James Ivey and the late Karna Ivey. Cherished grandmother to Austin Ivey, Taylor Ivey and Gillian Ivey. Beloved daughter to the late Jacob and Sophia Karna both of Finnish decent.

Dear sister to the late Eleanor Anderson (Ken Anderson) and her late brother Edward Karna. Loving aunt to the late Connie McNally (nee Anderson) survived by her husband Paul McNally, his daughter Kristin of the Boston area and Karen Karna Roy of Marquette, Michigan.

Marty was born on August 11th, 1922 near Marquette. She was an English teacher before becoming an airline stewardess with Pan American Airlines where she met her late husband C. Robert (Bob) Ivey. Marty dedicated much of her life as caregiver for her daughter Karna who courageously battled Cystic Fibrosis until succumbing to the disease in her 30th year.

Marty’s big laugh and joyful personality attracted many of her children’s friends who would sit for hours in their kitchen in London, Ontario captivated by the many colourful conversations. Marty loved to walk her dog daily in Gibbons Park where many dogs would come running from far corners of the park to greet her. She was proud of her dual citizenship and had a vivacious flare for life. Her collection of New York style hats and custom shoes were a reflection of her outspoken, loving nature. She will be fondly remembered by many, including members of the American Women’s Club – London.

Memorial Visitation will be held in Oakville on Thursday, February 12th. There will be a funeral service for the immediate family only. A celebration of Marty’s life will take place in London, Ontario on Thursday, May 7th from 2 - 5 p.m. at the London Hunt and Country Club.

JUDGE, Francis (Frank) Wilfred -

July 20, 1923 - February 6, 2015

At this time, I would like to say, I have been fortunate to have many memories as follows: - My childhood, including my parents, grandparents and brothers John and Crawford. - My days delivering for the pharmacy in the snow in cold Winnipeg, attending the University of Manitoba, serving with the armed forces during World War II and attending Harvard University; during these times, I acquired many lifelong friends. - My accomplishments in the sports world playing basketball, running and jumping and qualifying for preliminary trials for the 1948 Olympics, didn't make it, but so enjoyed the competition. - My family with my wife, Bonnie, (who left us 10 years ago) and all our adventures over fifty plus years, our daughters Anne, Maureen, Barbara and Martha, our sons Frank Jr., Mike, Ted and Peter, our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. - My family with my wife, Marilyn, who has given me great happiness and lots of laughter, her son, Noel and my additional grandchildren. - My business life with Canadian Cottons, tenure as a Professor at Queen's University, executive consultant and partner with Booze Allen introduced me to leaders of both industry and government throughout North America and Europe.

Finally, I would like to thank all who have made life such a remarkable journey.

Aloha My request - there will be no service or memorials.

We will miss our Dad and my husband so very much.

As a family, we wish to extend special thanks to Dr. Paul Sugar, the staff of Lions Gate Hospital and North Shore Hospice Society.

MACDONALD, A. Laird MacDonald - Obituary | Print |

MACDONALD, Col. A. Laird (Ret.) -

An officer and a gentleman - that sums up the life of A. Laird Macdonald. Born in Amherst, N.S. in 1920, Laird lived an amazing life. He moved to Toronto in the late 1920's and attended high school at De La Salle. With war approaching, Laird joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1940, a career that spanned the next 35 years.

And what a career he had. Moving through Italy in his tank with the B.C. Dragoons, Laird was captured and interned as a POW in Germany. Released at the end of the war, Laird stayed with the forces. His was an impressive career with tours in Korea, Laos and serving in increasingly senior positions at Supreme Allied headquarters in Belgium and with intelligence duties at headquarters in Ottawa. Rising to the rank of Colonel, he retired in 1975.

Through this, he met the love of his life, Margaret Hinds, and they were married in 1954. Partners in life, they had a wonderful journey of 50 years until Margaret died in 2004. Laird continued with discipline and humour, living independently to the end.

Laird passed peacefully on Friday, February 6, 2015 at University Hospital in London, Ontario.

Beloved husband of the late Margaret Hinds. Predeceased by his father and mother Senator John A. McDonald and Alice T. Mcdonald, brothers J.D.A. (Jack) Mcdonald, Gordon M. Mcdonald and Derek Mcdonald and sisters Greta Tindale and Jean Coliton.

Will be sadly missed by many to whom he was uncle and great-uncle and particularly to Graeme, Linda, Courtney and Lauren Tindale, Roy and Barbara Megarry and John Bird.
