JURGENSEN, Annemarie Jurgensen  -  Annemarie Jurgensen, in her eighty-eighth year, passed away peacefully at home, on July 12, 2021.

Predeceased by her loving husband, Jan, on March 6, 2017.

She will be greatly missed by her sons, Jan (Kathy Frost), and Lars, brother Josef (Sepp) Aigner (Francisca), great aunts Karoline Fischbacher and Julia; nieces Dagmar  (Horst), and Josephine (Juan); nephew Christian; cousins Irene, and Monika.

Predeceased by parents Maria and Johann Aigner and siblings Hans and Christine Aigner.

Annemarie was a bright light, a grand and loyal friend, fun-loving, with the warmest heart.

A ferocious reader, she enjoyed great literature. She was cherished by many friends and their spouses, including Ulla Thaysen, Annelore Ruhig, Grace Brockmann, Berta Liwak, Eva Ehlers, Ilse Schmidt, Sandra Karl, Betty VandenBos, Kim MacDonald, Denise Hines , Chris Mehling, Barbara Sibley, and especially by best friend, Elfrieda (Elfi) Muller (Cord).

She kept in contact with neighbours from years gone by, and never missed an opportunity to keep up with news in person and by telephone. The family home was the centre of holidays, and she never missed an opportunity to host holiday dinners or barbecues, or a traditional coffee hour with homemade cakes and cookies—all of them delicious! Annemarie survived the hardships of postwar Germany, and on a whim and in the spirit of great adventure, came to Canada with her dear childhood friend, Elfi, in 1958.

They danced their way across the Atlantic on the ship Arosa Sun, and then danced their way into the hearts of Jan, and Cord, whom they met in Toronto.

Annemarie loved the space, opportunity and landscape of Canada, especially cottage country, in the Muskokas, and the Heber Down Conservation Area, where she walked innumerable miles with the family dog, Senta.

She enjoyed her work at Loblaws grocery store, but left to dedicate her time to making a wonderful home and life for Jan and her sons. She always showed warm hospitality to all the friends and neighbours, and creatures, great and small, who were part of her world.

A celebration of life will be held for Annemarie and her husband Jan, at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto, at a date to be announced, close to their first home in Toronto where they started their life together, so many years ago. 

Special thanks to the kind team at Lakeridge Health, and especially to Dr. Salari, Dr. Chandoke, Dr. McAllister, Dr. Wintemute, all of whom gave such compassionate care to Annemarie in her final days.

If you like, contributions to the Canadian Cancer Society, or any  CHARITY of your choice, would be appreciated.

JURGENSEN, Jan Hans Jurgensen  - Jan Jurgensen, passed away in his seventy-ninth year, on March 6, 2017.

Beloved husband of Annemarie Jurgensen, and loving father to sons Jan (Kathy Frost) and Lars.

Predeceased by parents Auguste and Jan Jurgensen, step-father Walter Lorentzen, sister Dorette (Letti) (Ewald), aunt Paula Maciejok (Josef), step-brother Walter Lorentzen, and cousins Gretel Leu and Kurt Jurgensen.

He enjoyed the company of his friends Walter Ruhig, Bob Kerr, George Johnston, Jens Thaysen, Willie Schmidt, Mike Ehlers, and their spouses. 

Jan will be forever remembered for his love and loyalty to his family, friends, and relations, and his great hospitality to all. 

A great adventurer, Jan was one of the first of his contemporaries to fly to Canada in 1957, from the island of Sylt in Northern Germany. He started his Canadian work life as a journeyman mechanic, at Volkswagen Canada.

His entrepreneurial spirit quickly led him to establish his own successful trucking business, where he exercised his remarkable mechanical and auto electrical skills, executing repairs out of whatever was at hand, seemingly out of thin air.

And no matter how hard he worked, he always made time for family and friends.

The early years were filled with connections with friends in camping trips, house parties, the great dance halls of Toronto.

Jan was well served by an uncanny sense of direction and memory of every place he had ever visited, whether in the course of his work, or in pleasure trips by car or camper van to Mexico, with Annemarie and with friends. He ranged throughout Canada, the US and Mexico; from Vancouver to Halifax, and from Dawson Creek to the Gulf of Mexico, and countless places in between.

Together with Annemarie, he returned many times to Germany and his beloved island of Sylt. He took enormous pride in his accomplishments and family, and created along with Annemarie a secure and happy home for sons Jan and Lars, a home which became a hub of connection for family and friends.

In his later years, there was nothing he liked better than long walks along the Lake Ontario shoreline with Annemarie. Together, Jan and Annemarie enjoyed their life together, and especially the company of their loving sons.  

A celebration of life will be held for Jan and his wife Annemarie, at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto, at a date to be announced, close to their first home in Toronto, where they started their life together, so many years ago.
