BURKE, Eleanor Burke - Obituary | Print |

BURKE, Eleanor -

Burke_Eleanor(April 7, 1922 - July 13, 2015)

Eleanor died gracefully of an aggressive brain tumour, glioblastoma, that first became apparent in mid-May.

As she was remarkably active and mentally agile up until then, her sudden illness was a shock to all who knew her. She remained lucid until the end, for which we are all grateful.

She is survived by her daughter, Evelyn, her son, Paul and his partner, Naomi and her grandchildren, Matthew, and Amy and her partner, Juan. She will be sorely missed by her many friends.

Eleanor (nee Speyer), daughter of Bernhardt and Greta, was a survivor who rarely looked back. Born in Germany in 1922, she came to England in 1939 by herself. She adapted to wartime life in London and married Eric Burke, also a refugee from Germany, in 1944. They immigrated to Canada in 1953 and moved to Toronto in 1956. Once she was settled in, she became active in the community and with the Association of Women Electors, becoming their President in 1971-73.

In her last 25 years, her focus was on later life learning at the University of Toronto. She was a founder of the Academy for Lifelong Learning, the coordinator of the Knox College Summer Program of lectures, and a proud recipient of the Arbor Award for her work in this area. In these last few years, while working at Knox, her priority was on figuring out how to foster reconciliation with the aboriginal people of Canada.

She moved into Belmont House in 2012, where she experienced a sense of independence that she had rarely known. Congrats to the staff at Belmont House for running such an excellent seniors residence. Her expressed wish was that her life should not be unnecessarily prolonged by invasive or artificial means.

We are grateful to Dr. Catherine Maurice, whose clear advice helped us to respect these wishes. Also to Dr. Russell Goldman and his palliative care team. In her final weeks, the care provided by the women from Home Instead was exceptional.

If you wish to honour her memory with a donation, she would like it to be to the Belmont House Foundation.

CUNNINGHAM, Marie Thérèse (Roy) Cuningham - Obituary | Print |

CUNNINGHAM, Marie Thérèse (née Roy) -

Thérèse (Terry) passed on July 13, 2015 at Scarborough Grace Hospital in her 95th year.

Predeceased by her parents Antonia Houle and Philippe Roy and her brothers Robert, Roger and Maurice, who called her Poulette because she talked so much. Loving wife of the late C. Leslie Cunningham for 57 years. Beloved mother of Michelle (late Bill) and Colette (Ken).

She was the doting Grand-Maman of Jérémie, Dominique, Stéphanie and Valérie. Mom was a francophone transplant from Montreal who was aghast at the lack of culture and life of Toronto the Staid when she arrived in 1945 for her marriage to Les. She worked as a bilingual secretary at Colgate until the birth of her children.

She returned to work as a school secretary in the Catholic French language schools. Thérèse was instrumental in opening schools in the north of the city: Sainte-Madeleine and Saint-Jean-de-Lalande. The years spent with "Ia gang de Sainte- Madeleine" were her happiest working years.

Upon her retirement in 1985, Terry and Les travelled in Europe and wintered in Florida for many years.

After Dad's death in 2002, Mom showed her fierce determination and independence living in her home until 90 years of age.

Mom will always be remembered for her fashion sense, her love of a good party, her quick wit, her feistiness and the love of Les and her family.

Visitation at the Paul O'Connor Funeral Home, 1939 Lawrence Ave. E., from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday.

Funeral Mass on Thursday morning at 10 a.m. in Annunciation of Our Lady Church (Victoria Park, south of Ellesmere).
