NOVACK o@ca.on.manitoulin.howland.little_current.manitoulin_expositor 2003-10-15 published
-In loving memory of Ruby Mae, who passed away one year ago on October 22, 2002.
This is for you,
For the mother, wife and grandma we love,
For the one who helped us
Through all our childhood tears and failures.
For the lady who was a wonderful example of
what more women should be.
For the mother, wife and grandma whose
love and devotion to her family was marked by strength and guidance.
We respected and admired you so.
-Much love and sadly missed by daughter Corrine GILL, son Don COULTIS and wife Marlene, good Friends John and Pat NOVACK and families.

Suddenly and peacefully at home in Burlington early on Saturday, April 26th 2003 in his 84th year. Derry was born on October 20th, 1919 in Olomouc, in what was then Czechoslovakia. He came to Canada, by his own wits and means in 1939 to join his parents who had led the way. He then joined the Czech Army in Canada and served overseas. Following World War 2, Derry pursued undergraduate studies in political theory at the University of Toronto, and later at the London School of Economics. In his actions, in his studies, and finally in his profession as a great teacher of politics and philosophy at McMaster University (Department of Political Science), where he served as Chairman of the Department, and later as Professor Emeritus, Derry was a lover and defender of liberty and democracy, a fierce critic of all institutions and systems of power which exploited and abused those less well equipped to advance their own interests in society. He was a man of learning and of peace, and, by his example - as in his lectures - he showed how the truly good life could be led. Derry will be deeply missed, as he was so dearly loved and cared for by his wife of 29 years, Nancy. Derry is also survived by his daughter Lee (Stan KANAROSKI,) grandchildren Liz and Katie KANAROSKI, son Daryl (Brian HARRISON, step-children Andrea JOHNSTONE (John SHELLEY) and Brad JOHNSTONE, step-grandchildren Elicia JOHNSTONE and Jesse JOHNSTONE. In the strange and unexplained way that life can often unfold, Derry's first wife, Doreen, died on the same morning as he. In lieu of flowers and services of any kind, and in accordance with his often expressed wishes, please remember Derry by sitting in contemplation listening to the music of Beethoven, preferably a symphony. If desired, contributions can be made to McMaster University, c/o The Derry Novak Award, Main Street West, Hamilton, Ontario, L8S 4M4. Obesa Cantavit

NOVAK, Doreen
In Niagara-on-the-Lake, on April 26, after a long struggle with Parkinson's Disease and other illnesses, at the age of 80. Doreen is survived by son Daryl, and Brian HARRISON of Niagara-on-the-Lake, daughter Lee, and Stan KANAROSKI, grandchildren Liz and Katie of Canmore, Alberta. In a bizarre twist of fate, Doreen and her former husband, Derry NOVAK of Burlington, Ontario died within minutes of each other. Born in England she taught in the former Czechoslovakia, alternated between England and Canada, eventually settling in southern Ontario. Over the ensuing years there were numerous extended periods abroad and in later years in Naples, Florida. Doreen had long and varied professional and volunteer roles in education, the arts, and health care. A memorial gathering and reception will be held at the McMaster University Faculty Club at 3: 00 p.m. Monday, May 5, 2003. Donations in Doreen's memory to the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra or McMaster University are appreciated.
