BAIRD, John Peter
At Toronto, on Tuesday, January 25, 2005, at 4: 00 p.m., John, at age 91, peacefully slipped away to his eternal rest surrounded by his family and secure in his faith, both of which were so very important to him. Loving and cherished husband of Margaret (Peggy) for 64 years. Dear father of Jennifer and her husband Randy REESE, Janet CALLAGHAN and her partner Jeff BUTLER. He is remembered lovingly and proudly by his grandchildren Vanessa and her husband Boaz AXELRAD, Lindsey and her husband Jordan BLACK, Brendan CALLAGHAN, Courtenay WISE, Miranda CALLAGHAN, Darcy CALLAGHAN and his fiancée Taissa PRYCHODKO, and by his great-grandchildren Neeve and Kai AXELRAD and Zoe BLACK. John led a full and remarkable life that began in Newcastle upon Tyne on November 23, 1913. He joined the British Army as a very young man and rose to the rank of Major on a journey that took him to India with the Royal Horse Artillery, Singapore and Europe as well as North Africa, Iraq, Egypt and Italy during World War 2. One of John's joys later in life was the time he spent as a retiree working as a court clerk for the family court of Ontario. John learned a lot about the fine work and difficult decisions that must be wrestled with on a daily basis by the lawyers and judges in their efforts to protect a fair and just society. John never stopped learning and was always deeply interested in public affairs and international politics. Though he spent many years as a soldier, he was deeply saddened by the expansion of violence and wars throughout the world, especially the involvement of foreign troops that escalate these circumstances and expose the soldiers to unnecessary danger. A mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 78 Clifton Road (at St. Clair Avenue East), on Saturday, January 29th, at 1: 30 p.m.

BUCEK, Gertrude Anna " Trude"
Peacefully at Leisureworld Scarborough, just before dawn on Saturday, February 26, 2005, in her 91st year. Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, talented homemaker, gardener, arts enthusiast, antique collector and hostess extraordinaire, she went silently and very gently into that good night. Born in Vienna in the early months of World War 1, she lived in Austria and former Czechoslovakia until she emigrated to Canada in 1951 with her husband and four (soon to be five) young daughters. From her mother, Matilde BOUKAL, an opera singer, and her father Richard WALDEK, owner of the Grand Hotel Waldek in Pilsen, she inherited a love of opera and a remarkable sense of style. Friends and family have witnessed with sadness more than a decade of dramatically declining health. Her daughters are very grateful to caregivers Francine BARIT and more recently Brenda SYLVESTER, together with the dedicated staff of the 6th floor at Leisureworld Scarborough. Predeceased in 2002 by her husband of 63 years, Jaro, she is remembered with love by her daughters Olga KORPER (Leo MEYER,) Sylvia BUCEK, Trude MEYER (Wolfgang,) Mimi MARROCCO (Frank,) and Hélène BUCEK- MacKEY (Ernie.) Beloved "Babi" to Sasha KORPER (Gregory AXELSON), Kim MEYER- CECH (Alexander), Marc SELLITTO, Lilian MEYER- JANZEK (Andreas), Emily MARROCCO (Michael CONDOYANNIS), Phillip MEYER, Rachel DAVIES (Rob,) Angela MARROCCO and Ted MARROCCO. Great-grandmother of Taiga, Kirin, Jackson and Matthew. Visitation on Wednesday, March 2, 7: 00-9:00 p.m. at McDougall And Brown Funeral Home, 2900 Kingston Road (east of Brimley). Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, March 3 at 10: 30 a.m at St. Basil's Church, 50 St. Joseph Street (corner of Bay Street, one block north of Wellesley). Donations in her memory to the Canadian Opera Company or to the University of St. Michael's College (81 Saint Mary Street, Toronto, M5S 1J4) would be greatly appreciated.
