DEMIANCHUK, Alexandra Maria
By Olenka DEMIANCHUK, Page A16
Wife, mother, gardener. Born July 29, 1922, in Kudynivtsi, Ukraine. Died January 31, of pulmonary disease in Toronto, aged 83.
In the Etobicoke garden of Lesia (Alexandra), you could find a world of flowers, herbs, trees and vegetables. She loved nothing more than to press upon admiring visitors some roses or sprigs of dill or garlic or sorrel to take home. The only thing you would never find in her garden was turnip.
She was born to Olena and Josyf, the village priest. Her older brother Vlodzio was, in Lesia's words, a handsome intellectual her sister Siania, a vivacious blonde. Lesia, the quiet, dark-haired middle child, described her own life as neither interesting nor unusual. But her life unfolded amid momentous world events -- most notably the Second World War; most devastatingly following the German occupation of Ukraine. One dreadful night, the Gestapo came knocking and took away Siania. The next morning, after curfew lifted, Lesia found her sister's body on the street, shot to death.
Many dark hours followed. In 1944, her employer moved west to escape the bombing in Lviv. Lesia expected she could return within a few months but the war's front line kept moving and she was forced to flee time after time. Eventually she was taken to a farm outside Vienna where she tended cows and shovelled manure. She felt alone and inconsolable. Roommates balked at sharing quarters with her because she cried so much and so loudly.
As the front moved again, the family she worked for planned an escape over the Alps. The farmer's wife had no intention of taking Lesia along but the children loved Lesia and refused to leave without her. They likely saved her life.
After three weeks by cart, they reached a mountain town. Lesia laboured morning to night for a farmer who provided starvation rations: rotting turnips.
Salvation came with the American troops and war's end. She got work at a camp for orphans. It gave her comfort to give comfort she herself felt orphaned. She never ate turnips again.
In 1948, she landed in Montreal, finding work with a Francophone family for $35 a month. She moved to Toronto in 1950 and soon met and married Tadzio. Both longed for companionship and stability after years of trauma and dislocation. Both wanted a home and a family of their own. In 1952, she gave birth to a daughter Olenka. One dream fulfilled.
Lesia had named her daughter in honour of her own mother but she had lost contact with her parents and her brother. The Iron Curtain was tightly drawn, so it was only after Stalin's death that the devastating news got through: She was indeed an orphan her family were all dead.
Yet tiny Lesia was a fighter. She and Tadzio were "naked and shoeless" but like most refugees hardened by life experience, determined to work very hard. And then by great luck, Lesia landed a job with an insurance company. That meant daytime hours and decent working conditions. But her comfort was sharply interrupted: Tadzio's death from cancer in 1977 was a great sadness. Then, in widower Andrij CHARAK, Lesia found another who shared her need for companionship. They lived together for many years until he too was taken from her by Alzheimer's.
During her years with Andrij, she turned her energies to cultivating a garden; there she found the grounding she had long sought, a place where she expressed her creative and nurturing talents. She spent hours in that garden: "Here smell this beautiful rose," she would say. Then there were her raspberry and gooseberry bushes, her apple and pear trees, the little woods at the back and, of course, her vast, turnip-less, vegetable garden. She made a mean sorrel soup. It was in that garden that she finally found peace.
Olenka is Lesia's daughter.

Migrant worker killed at farm
Tuesday, May 23, 2006
Saugeen Shores - A 39-year-old migrant worker was killed Saturday in a freak accident in Saugeen Shores.
Samuel GIL, a worker from Mexico on Hi-Berry Farms, which is located between Southampton and Port Elgin on Highway 21, was loading asparagus onto the back of a truck when the truck accidentally backed over him.
GIL, a husband and father of six, had returned to Hi-Berry Farms each year for the past five years to take part in planting and harvesting on the fresh-produce farm. [Death notice named him as GIL- MONTESINOS, Samuel Maurilio]
"We lost not just a worker," said the company's co-owner, Luke CHARBONNEAU, "he was also a friend."
CHARBONNEAU said they are trying to make arrangements to bring his wife to the area, so she can escort her husband's body back to Mexico.
"It's a tragic time for all of us," he said.
Driver and co-worker Abel RODRIGUEZ, also from Mexico, gave a statement to the police Sunday and it is not expected that any charges will be laid.
CHARBONNEAU said an autopsy is being performed today and funeral director Kent MILROY in Port Elgin is making the necessary arrangements to have GIL's body flown back to Mexico.
A news release from Saugeen Shores Police Service said GIL was taken by ambulance to the Grey Bruce Health Services Southampton site, where he was treated but succumbed to his injuries.
The Saugeen Shores Traffic Unit, along with the Ontario Provincial Police Technical Traffic Unit, were called in to assist, the release said. Saugeen Shores police Sgt. Ron CUILLERIER said the accident is still under investigation.

CHARLES- DUNNE, Claude Leslie " Charles" (1924-2006)
(Major, Ret.)
The family of Claude Leslie "Charles" CHARLES- DUNNE sadly announces his death from natural causes on Friday, May 5, 2006. Mourned by wife Hille, sons Robert (Anna Lee) and Royce, and grand_sons Kalen and Taylor, Charles was pre-deceased by daughter Tracy Anne. The family thanks Bettie ANDERSON, the Friends who supported Hille and Charles in recent months, and the Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston for the exceptional care given Charles in his final days. Born in Bombay, India, Charles was sent at age four to a British boarding school and later studied at Exeter Academy in Devon. Enlisting in His Majesty's Royal Army at age seventeen, Charles was stationed in India and Burma throughout World War 2, where he rose to a Major's rank, in command of a company of engineers. After demobilization in 1946 Charles went back to India, before immigrating to Canada in 1954 where he met and married wife Hille (née SCHNIER.) With a career in printing, real estate and insurance, Charles' personal passions were producing homemade beer and wine, and caring for animals. An avid reader, upon retiring Charles and Hille founded The Green Briar Town Crier, a monthly periodical for the residents of Green Briar and Briar Hill, which he continued to publish for 16 years. It was a daily endeavour that kept him active until the onset of age required him to slow down only recently. Admired in life for his integrity, compassion, dry wit, and remarkable vocabulary, Charles will be missed in death by the many who came to love him. Charles was a helpful friend to those in need, and indefatigable when tasks needed completing. Gifted with a keen mind that devised inventive solutions, he was an admirable role model for his children and community. Able to articulate complex ideas in very few words, Charles rarely talked at length, but imparted great wisdom and respect to all, including those he had only just met. Observing his wishes, there will be no funeral service. Charles will be cremated and interred at the Alliston Union Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for contributions to the Stevenson Memorial Hospital. The family would like those who knew Charles to raise a glass in a private toast, in his memory. Gone, perhaps, but never to be forgotten.

CHARLES, John
The Charles family mourns the loss of John, dearly beloved husband and lifetime companion to Julie. John was the loving father to Beth, Andy, Bill and grandfather to Hilary, Alison, Zachary, Brenna, Victoria and Mitchell. John could always be found at the hockey rink coaching or at the baseball diamond umpiring baseball in Scarborough and later in life cheering his grandchildren on to success. Walking his dog along the boardwalk with Julie was a daily ritual he enjoyed followed by a coffee at Tim Horton's. In a world full of "maybes" John was the definitive "count on" for his family, we will miss his character, his unique charm knowing that a little bit of him lives on in all of us. Nipper, Duke, Duchess, Polly, Toby, Kaiser and Max look forward to long walks with their master in the Elysian Fields. A Memorial Service will be held at Saint John The Baptist Anglican Church (470 Woodbine Ave.) on Friday, March 17th, 2006 at 10: 30 a.m. followed by interment at Saint John's Norway Cemetery.
