SWIEKATUN, Veronica Swiekatun Obituary | Print |

SWIEKATUN, Veronica -

Swiekatun_VeronicaPassed away on February 16, 2015 in her 82nd year surrounded by family.

Veronica was born in Poland, now Belarus, in 1932. During the war and post war years her family was moved from country to country: France, Italy, Siberia, India, Pakistan and her most cherished and memorable, Kenya.

In 1950 Veronica came to Canada through Pier 21 in Halifax. She settled in Guelph with her sister (Janina), brother (John) and mother (Elizabeth). Her brother Joe moved to the US. Soon after she met Walter, they married and moved to Toronto. As many new immigrants through hard work they made a good life in their new homeland for themselves and their three children, Chet, Sylvia (husband John) and Lisa (husband Lee).

In time they moved to Oakville. Having the kindest, most generous and gentlest of hearts, her home was open to everyone. There was always laughter, friends, family, food and good times. Veronica was a dedicated caregiver to Walter, who suffered from MS, for 40 years. Walter passed away 10 years ago and Veronica’s boundless energy was focussed on her grandchildren, Steven, Sarah, Kristie, Holly and Renee. 

As her Alzheimer’s progressed she moved to Kensington Gardens where she ended her journey. We want to thank the staff at Kensington for all their compassion and dedication.

In lieu of flowers donations in memory can be made to the Alzheimer Society or Kensington Foundation.

A funeral mass will be held on Friday, February 20th at 11:00 a.m. at St. James Roman Catholic Church, 231 Morden Road, Oakville.

COWAN, Gordon Stuart

Cowan_Gordon(December 25, 1917 - February 15, 2015)

Passed away peacefully in Paris, Ontario on February 15, 2015 in his 98th year.

Stuart was predeceased by his wife of 59 years, Mary; William and Stella (parents), Alice (step mother), Cameron (brother) and Donna (sister). Stuart dedicated his life to farming and the well-being of his family.

A pillar in the Drumbo community, Stuart held executive positions in numerous associations including: Ayr Co-op and Credit Union, Blenheim Junior Farmers, Farm Forum, Drumbo Fair Board, Ayr Farmer's Fire Insurance, and Willis United Church. Many recall Stuart's mentorship of local youth by providing opportunities to learn the farming trade and by his long service as Superintendent of Willis United Church Sunday School.

While Stuart believed in a hard day's work, he was also a great music and sports enthusiast performing as tenor in the Willis United Church Choir, violinist in the Drumbo orchestra, coaching the Drumbo Girl's Baseball Team, and playing third base for the Drumbo Men's Baseball Team that went on to win two Ontario Championships – a prized memory for Stuart.

During his retirement, Stuart continued to fuel his incredibly inquisitive mind, occupying his time reading, appreciating poetry, storytelling, visiting with family and friends, and enjoying church and musical gatherings at Park Lane Terrace.

Stuart's family wishes to express appreciation to Park Lane Terrace Staff for the attentive care received by our mother and father.

In lieu of funeral services, a private family memorial will be held at a later date.
