CIFALDI, Maria (née PIRONAGGI)
Surrounded by her loving family, Maria CIFALDI passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on Wednesday, April 27, 2005, in her 59th year. Beloved wife of Rocco for 41 years. Dearly loved mother of Lina and her husband Nick D'ORIA, Jane and her husband Simon FARRUGIA, Nancy and her husband Dominic MAZZA. She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren John, Rocco, Sarah, Selena and Matteo. Predeceased by her parents Giuseppe PIRONAGGI and Maria DEFAZIO of Italy, In-laws Domenico CIFALDI and Nicolina CERICOLA. Also survived by brothers and sister Domenico and wife Assunta PIRONAGGI, Giovannina and husband Amos SGROMO, Antonio PIRONAGGI and wife Angelina TROPEA of Italy. Predeceased by sister Angelina PIRONAGGI and husband Francesco GIGLIOTTI of Italy.
Maria was a remarkable woman. She devoted her entire life to her husband, children, grandchildren, family members and Friends. She was about laughter, good times, cooking, vacations, watching her husband play and coach soccer and more recently - taking up the game of golf - it was her determination to learn the game, even though she had to put up with the "private lessons" given by her husband Rocco. Those lessons paid off however, as she achieved a hole-in-one in 2000 and has won numerous championship flights at Westhaven Golf and County Club. Maria never put anything she wanted to do aside and that is why she has achieved so much. She has achieved satisfaction by taking the time to enjoy what life had to offer her. Even though we are losing her at a relatively young age, she had no regrets in life - and we definitely gained by having such a loving, joyful and strong woman in our lives. Family and Friends will be received at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, on Saturday from 7: 00-9:00 p.m. and Sunday from 2: 00-4:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m. The funeral mass will be celebrated at Saint Mary's Church, 345 Lyle Street, on Monday, May 2, 2005 at 11: 00 a.m. with Father Joseph DABROWSKI officiating and Father Pio D'ORIA assisting. Entombment at St. Peter's Cemetery. At our mother's request, in lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation are asked to consider the Run for Ovarian Cancer, c/o 810 Maitland St, Unit #5, London, Ontario, N5Y 5K3. The family wishes to thank Dr. CAREY, Dr. HARLE and his team as well as all the nurses at London Health Sciences Centre and Parkwood Hospital Palliative Care, who wholeheartedly assisted with her care.

Winnifred Vining GIGUÈRE
By Jean SHAPTER and Elizabeth LANG, Tuesday, December 6, 2005, Page A24
Mother, sister, veteran, hostess, teacher. Born October 22, 1920, in Oxford County, Ontario Died July 18 peacefully in her sleep in Mississauga, Ontario, aged 84.
Wynne, as we called her for much of her life, was the first child of Elizabeth and Gordon VINING and, together with her sister Jean, grew up on a 40-hectare farm a few miles from the Middlesex County site of the pioneer Vining settlement in southwestern Ontario.
She qualified for two scholarships at Sir Adam Beck Collegiate Institute in London. After teacher training at the London Normal School, she taught in one-room country schools until the summer of 1942, when she and her sister enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force Women's Division. There they both served in the secret world of the Operations Room. Air Force postings took Wynne to Rockcliffe, Ontario, Halifax, Florida, Saint John's (overseas at that time), Dartmouth, Ottawa and Ancaster. She completed her service with the rank of Flight Officer.
In September, 1945, as Adjutant of the Ancaster Convalescent Hospital, Wynne met Flying Officer Paul GIGUÈRE, a wartime Lancaster bomber pilot. Paul quickly won her heart and after their discharge from the service, they were married.
Their early years together were spent in Quebec but in the late 1950s, Paul's work brought them to Ontario and a home in Mississauga. Six children blessed their marriage: John, Susan, Diane, Michael, Julie and Lisa. The passage of years added four sons-in-law and a daughter-in-law. At the time of her death, Wynne, who hated the idea of being called "grandma," was "Mumzie" to twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Traditions in Wynne's home celebrated her family's dual heritage. Her pièce de résistance on Christmas Eve was Mme Giguère's tourtière served with her mother's chili sauce. On New Year's Day, according to French custom, she hosted a gala party for the entire family.
After many years as a mother and homemaker, Wynne returned to teaching and earned a degree from the University of Toronto. She had an outstanding career with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board as a classroom teacher in both elementary and secondary schools and, ultimately, as department head.
In retirement, Wynne exchanged the classroom for the community. Her activities included service with the Volunteer Centre of Peel, working with retired teachers' organizations and speaking for the Dominion Institute's Memory Project which aims to familiarize elementary and secondary school students with the Second World War.
She enjoyed frequent social activities with retired teachers and travel in Canada, the United States, Europe and Hong Kong.
Wynne actively pursued genealogical research. This led her to Massachusetts, where, centuries ago, an adventurous 16-year-old Vining ancestor from Somerset settled. It also took her to England, where she researched other Vining ancestors, and to Ireland, where she traced her Talbot and Duffin forebears. Her genealogical records are formidable.
Wynne was a disciplined walker and a life-long nature lover. She especially enjoyed the spring wildflowers in Rattray Marsh and the geese and ducks swimming with their young at the lake's edge in Jack Darling Park in Mississauga.
Among all her interests, Wynne's family was paramount. Her home was the focal point for gatherings to celebrate birthdays, New Year's Eve, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Even at 84, she insisted on preparing the festive meals single-handedly and remained a relaxed and welcoming hostess to all.
Jean is Wynne's sister; Elizabeth her niece.

GIGUERE, Winnifred Irene (née VINING)
Unexpectedly but peacefully our beloved mother died at home, in her sleep, on July 18, 2005. Mum would have turned 85 on October 22, 2005. She leaves her loving children: John, Sue (Pete), Diane (Mike), Michael (Dana), Julie (Murray), and Lisa (Peter). Her twelve grandchildren will miss their Mumzie deeply: Stephanie (Dan), Myles, Alicia (Scott), Megan (Brent), Denise (Pat), Paul, Michelle, Danielle, Della, John, Samantha and Josee. Mum's four great-grandchildren will miss her very much, too: Brittany, Benjamin, Wyatt and Brooke. Mum also leaves her devoted and loving sister Jean, Jean's daughter Elizabeth (and husband Graham), and their son, Philip. There are many other nieces, nephews, cousins and dear Friends for whom Mum's life was an example and a beacon. Mum loved life and was fully engaged in the process of living it. Her positive attitude was ever-present. Mum was a generous, caring and deeply compassionate person who was devoted to her family and her Friends, and to giving back to her community. Her pursuit of excellence in every endeavour was recognized by each person with whom she came in contact. Until the time of her death, Mum was actively involved with the Volunteer Centre of Peel as a placement consultant and public speaker who promoted volunteerism. She belonged to two organizations for retired teachers (R.T.O. and R.W.T.O.), contributing reports and answering questions about benefits, as well as organizing pleasure trips. Mum also acted as a speaker for the Dominion Institute's Memory Project. In this capacity she educated students about the Second World War from her perspective as a former officer with the Royal Canadian Air Force (Womens' Division). Mum had a distinguished career with the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board. She retired from Saint Martin's High School as head of the history department. The treasures and gifts that Mum bestowed on all she touched will be sadly missed; not simply the packages of homemade preserves, hand-made fondant Easter eggs and cakes for every occasion, but the love and compassion she always demonstrated. Mum touched many lives. Countless former students say she was the best teacher they ever had. Her children and many of her Friends say the same thing. Mum contributed greatly to family and community and had a full, rewarding life as a result. In her loving memory all those whose lives she touched should try to follow her example. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga (Hwy. 10, north of Queen Elizabeth Way) from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday and 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Thursday. Funeral Mass to be held at St. Christopher's Church, 1171 Clarkson Road N. (at Lakeshore Blvd.), Mississauga, on Friday, July 22, 2005 at 10: 30 a.m. Interment Vining Cemetery, Thornbury, Ontario at 2:30 p.m. Please join the family for a time of fellowship and refreshment at the Elmhurst Inn, in Ingersoll following the interment.
