BIANCHET, Ivana Maria
It is with immense sadness and endless tears that we announce the passing of Ivana Maria BIANCHET at Toronto General Hospital, at 1: 00 p.m., Sunday, August 21, 2005, of acute liver failure. Beloved daughter of Egidio and Elsa BIANCHET, devoted and loving big sister of Stephen BIANCHET, dear niece of Eugenio and Dina BIANCHET in North Bay and Marianna ZUCCHET, Elsa BIANCHET, and Ceserina MOLENT in Italy, cherished cousin of Jerry BIANCHET and Daniela BIANCHET in North Bay, of Luisa BRUNET, Alice ZUCCHET, Carlo ZUCCHET, Roberto ZUCCHET, Linda MARZOTTO, and Denise DE BARTOLI in Italy, of Relina SARTOR in Toronto, of Gina SARTOR in Brampton, and of Carmela SARTOR, Luisa VITALE, Jimmy VITALE, and Christine ZENI in Bolton. Ivana was also a close and dear friend of Connie LABRIOLA, Grace DUKE, and Nancy and Mary BRIENZA, as well as their families, and she will also be sadly missed by other relatives and countless Friends, including her co-workers at Canada Post. Ivana was born on July 12, 1958 in Cordenons, Pordenone, Italy, in her paternal grandmother "Nona Nuta's" house, and was delivered by midwives. She emigrated to Canada in 1960 at the age of two with her parents Egidio and Elsa, who settled in Toronto after three years in North Bay, where they had joined their brother and sister Eugenio and Dina, respectively, who had married and been together in Canada since 1956. Ivana's parents added a son, Stephen, to the family in 1964. Ivana was a happy though quiet child who enjoyed school, which was negatively affected when she was very young by her lack of English and later in her teens by lengthy stays in hospital. Despite these setbacks, she always enjoyed learning new things and, throughout her life, took great care and consideration in everything she did. Ivana had the profound misfortune of being stricken with a number of serious illnesses throughout most of her life. After being diagnosed with kidney disease, she had her first kidney transplant in March 1971, at the age of 12, at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto; when that kidney failed some 22 years later, she received, at Toronto General Hospital, a second transplant in September 1993, which was donated, gladly and without hesitation, by her brother Stephen. Probably sometime in the 1970's or 1980's, she received tainted blood in Toronto through a transfusion and was infected with the Hepatitis C virus, the devastating effects of which started to manifest themselves fully in the last few years of her life. Sometime in the 1990's, some basal cell carcinomas (a type of skin cancer) were discovered on her body. She became diabetic and she also later was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (detected in early 2003). Possibly about the same time, she was also infected with the E-B virus. To compound her miseries, her cancers and viral infections were exacerbated and possibly facilitated by her decades of immunosuppression. Her last several years were spent courageously battling all of these illnesses, requiring innumerable trips to the hospital and many tests and procedures. This included four rounds of chemotherapy treatments, commencing in October 2004, to treat her lymphoma. Despite her many afflictions, Ivana was not a walking collection of illnesses. Ivana was a vibrant, cheerful, caring person, with a unique, musical laugh. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, niece, cousin, and friend. Ivana never complained and was forever brave and optimistic that she would prevail over the assault on her body. Her family and Friends certainly gave her the unconditional love and support to do so. She was a very good listener and patient with everyone. She placed the cares of her loved ones above her own and unselfishly was always concerned about their happiness. Everyone who knew Ivana loved her. She had a variety of interests and pursuits and two of her favourite destinations were Niagara Falls as well as North Bay, where she enjoyed visiting her relatives. Shopping was one of her joys, especially later in her battle, probably because deciding on a purchase was one of the few things in life over which she had any control. Despite all the tribulations with regard to her health, Ivana always found the goodness within herself and others, and loved to share life, laughter, and good times. She will be sadly missed by all whose lives she touched. The family will receive relatives and Friends at Ward Funeral Home at 4671 Hwy. 7, Woodbridge, Ontario, on Wednesday, August 24, between 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., and on Thursday, August 25, between 7-9 p.m. Funeral to be held at 10: 00 a.m. on Friday, August 26 at St. Roch's Catholic Church at 2889 Islington Ave., North York, Ontario. Entombment at Beechwood Cemetery at 7241 Jane Street, Concord, Ontario. Many thanks to the doctors, nurses, and other support staff at the University Health Network and The Hospital for Sick Children who cared for Ivana over her 35-year heroic battle with the serious illnesses noted above. In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the Canadian Liver Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Kidney Foundation of Canada, or the Canadian Diabetes Association.

WHITNEY, Gordon Thomas (February 13, 1916-December 10, 2005)
It is with great sadness, but equal pride for a life well lived, that his children announce his passing following a brief period of ill health. Gordon began his journey on a blustery February day in the village of Whitneyville, New Brunswick. He was the ninth child of Hiram and Ethel WHITNEY. From his humble farming roots, he lived a richly varied and travelled life. Gordon took pride in many things and these were all recently documented in his published and widely read memoirs. He enjoyed a long, successful and much storied career with The Ford Motor Company, including a well-remembered lunch with Henry Ford. His tenure included a two-year assignment in India during World War 2, managing a parts depot for Ford war vehicles. He was an active member of the Baptist Church his entire life, lending his many business skills to a variety of committees. He was a great father, a loving and loyal husband to his dear Roberta (Bertie, who passed away in 1994), and a wonderful friend to countless dozens. His kind and gentle spirit will be greatly missed by his children and grandchildren: Kathryn and Ron DUKE and their children Scott and Laura; Janet and her son Erick; Stephen and Christine and their children Lauren and Evan. Gordon will also be very much missed by his 'little' sister Ruth HAMILTON, favourite nephews Gary and Ron WHITNEY and many others. Our Dad will be most fondly remembered for his remarkable generosity and thoughtfulness. The baskets of Red Haven peaches that he delivered each August to so many will be greatly missed. Many are already enjoying their Christmas fruitcakes. Gordon always said he wanted to go out with his boots on and he surely did so, having enjoyed a seven day Alaskan cruise with his entire family in July and a few weeks later attending and speaking eloquently at his brother Edward's memorial service in Grand Marais, Minnesota. His 2005 spotlessly clean Lincoln Town Car has been idle only a few weeks. We invite all who knew Gordon to celebrate his life and loves: Please visit with his family at Skinner and Middlebrook, 128 Lakeshore Road East, Mississauga (west of Hurontario), on Tuesday, December 13 from 2-4 p.m. or 7-9 p.m. A Service of Remembrance will be held on Wednesday, December 14 at 2 p.m., Lorne Park Baptist Church, 1500 Indian Road, Mississauga. For those who may wish to make a donation in Gordon's memory, donations gratefully appreciated to the Salvation Army or Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.

RADFORD, Joanne
Passed away at home on December 15th, 2005. Born on May 29, 1946 in Winnipeg, Joanne also made Montreal her home before moving to Toronto in 1972. While in Montreal, Joanne met her life partner and husband, Walter NOE, who deeply mourns the passing of his "Jo-Jo". A vibrant and unique personality, Joanne attacked life with equal parts flamboyance and keen intelligence. She was well suited in her work, first in theatre, then as political activist and later as Executive Director. Many on the "other side of the table" found her to be a formidable adversary. In addition to managing Federal and Provincial election campaigns from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, Joanne was instrumental in founding two professional associations. She was intensely interested in and supportive of her family and many, many Friends. Even the challenge of failing health over the past ten years, which she coped with gallantly, couldn't extinguish her ability to meaningfully engage in the lives of others. Joanne is predeceased by her parents, Norman and Joan RADFORD and her brother, Gerald. She will be greatly missed by her step-mother T. Joan RADFORD, her Uncles Leonard RADFORD (Shirley) and Trevor WEBER, her cousins Carole CLARK, Moira EVANS (George), Ken WEBER (Mary), Douglas RADFORD (Bev) Allison LOGAN (Art,) her sisters-in-law Esther NOE and Linda MARSCHALL, her Nephew Zack RADFORD, and by Dr. Janusz DUKSZTA. Cremation has taken place, and at Joanne's request, there will be no funeral service. Instead, a celebration of Joanne's life will be held in January. Donations can be made in her name to Amnesty International.
