Anastasia WAWRYSHYN, 99: Hard worker lived for family
By Leslie FERENC, Staff Reporter
Every Friday, Anastasia WAWRYSHYN's grandchildren would race out of their classrooms at Saint_Josaphat Catholic School, across Franklin Ave. and straight to Baba's kitchen.
There, they'd be greeted with a big smile and an even bigger bowl of her light-as-a-cloud potato-filled perohy.
Of course, they couldn't eat just one. And no matter how many of those mouthwatering delicacies the four of them gobbled up, they knew there would be plenty more to take home for dinner.
"Baba always made enough for everybody," Michael WAWRYSHYN said of his mother who was much loved for her made-from-scratch traditional Ukrainian cooking and her open-hearted hospitality.
WAWRYSHYN died November 3, two months before her 100th birthday. She'd suffered a stroke 10 days earlier, the same day a sister passed away in Ukraine.
Family was everything for WAWRYSHYN who was born in the tiny Ukrainian village of Teplyts, January 3, 1907, in what was then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The eldest of nine children only six survived to adulthood -- she understood full well what it meant to struggle. Her parents were poor farmers who eked out a living on the the land, exchanging eggs and milk or freshly picked forest mushrooms for the things they couldn't produce themselves, said WAWRYSHYN of his mother's early years.
WAWRYSHYN decided to leave her beloved Ukraine after the death of her intended. He'd immigrated to Argentina to log the forests but died of malaria.
Riding by horse and buggy along dirt roads to the nearest train station, the feisty and tenacious 19-year-old travelled to Germany and then to England where she boarded a ship for Halifax. A stranger in a strange land who didn't know a living soul in Canada and didn't speak the language, the young woman forged ahead travelling west to Saskatoon in search of work. En route, WAWRYSHYN befriended a young Ukrainian woman and the two kindred spirits became fast Friends. Those were difficult but happy days, said her son. Both worked as domestics, with WAWRYSHYN taking a job in a boarding house for farm children attending high school in the city. She always looked forward to Sunday. It was spent at church, which was the centre of life for young Ukrainian immigrants who had settled in Saskatoon. After services, they attended teas and concerts and enjoyed the company of new Friends.
WAWRYSHYN and her friend later moved to Toronto, where she met and married her husband Prokip.
The couple moved to Franklin Ave. in 1939 and lived there all their lives. At the time, the majority of their neighbours were Ukrainian, settling in the close-knit west-end community near large factories where they could find work. Their three children, Michael, Mary and Anne, were born and raised in the old neighbourhood.
Having completed only Grade 3, WAWRYSHYN was passionate when it came to learning, determined her children would be well-educated and have the opportunities she didn't, said her son, a retired Toronto high school teacher.
A deeply pious woman, WAWRYSHYN's religious and social life revolved around the church. She was a long-time and active parishioner at Saint_Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral down the street from the family's home. She sang in the choir and was a founding member of the cathedral's chapter of the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League of Canada. "She just wanted a chance to make a better life and was happy to have it," said her son.
Deeply proud of her Ukrainian roots, WAWRYSHYN passed on her love of her homeland and its rich culture to her children who attended Ukrainian schools and were involved in various community organizations.
A serious individual devoted to her family, she was fiercely independent. WAWRYSHYN continued to work part-time until the age of 71 even though there was no need, her son said.
"And she refused to cash in her first pension cheque because she said she didn't need it," he added.
"The Depression and World War 2 shattered the dreams of bringing her family to Canada. Over the years, she helped support her family, sending parcels of food and clothing and a few dollars hidden in the lining of a coat, where she prayed they wouldn't be discovered and confiscated by Soviet officials. The packages included dozens of kerchiefs -- the colourful woollen scarves typically worn by women in villages across Ukraine. They were as valuable as gold back home. "Those kerchiefs paid for two houses there," said WAWRYSHYN. His mother never returned to her homeland.
Predeceased by her husband, WAWRYSHYN leaves her son and his wife Helen, daughter Mary BERKETA and husband Ron and daughter Anne; grandchildren Olena WAWRYSHYN and husband Oleh LESZCZYSZYN, Oksana WAWRYSHYN, Stephanie DAWE and husband Greg and Christine YUZWIN and husband Nick as well as great-grand_sons Matthew and Michael DAWE. She also leaves behind her sister Kateryna, 94, in Ukraine, as well as many nephews and nieces.

Mom, your thoughts were all so full of us
You never could forget
And so we think that where you are

Our proudest possession Mom was you.

Woman injured in fire dies
Debbie ROBERTS, 50, is remembered as a caring mother and friend and a tireless worker.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Fri., May 26, 2006
The woman rescued by London firefighters from a townhouse blaze has died, her family said yesterday.
Debbie ROBERTS, 50, who was rescued without vital signs from the fire Wednesday in her Arbour Glen Crescent home, but then resuscitated, died in hospital yesterday, her daughter said.
"She was a mother of three, she was kind to animals, she loved her family and her Friends," Shelley WULF, 27, said emotionally from her Virginia home.
ROBERTS lived with her common-law husband, identified by Friends and family as Paul MOOD, in the townhouse at 99 Arbour Glen Cres.
Police at first said he suffered minor injuries, then listed him in critical condition. But his condition wasn't known last night.
Sparkles, the London cleaning service where ROBERTS had worked the last six or seven years, has established a bank account to collect donations. The money is for expenses related to ROBERTS, not her husband, said manager Tammy FERGUSON.
"(Our boss) just wants to be able to do something for them," FERGUSON said. "We just don't want (WULF) to have to worry financially."
ROBERTS' family is facing financial struggles that may keep the three children from travelling to London, she said.
FERGUSON recalled ROBERTS as a tireless worker and friendly colleague.
"Every day, whether she felt good or not, she was here," FERGUSON said. "She was a back-breaker, seriously. She didn't take any time off, she couldn't afford to."
The cause of the fire was still unknown as the Ontario Fire Marshal continued investigating yesterday.
Police offered no new details.
It was about 2 a.m. Wednesday when tenants in the townhouse complex which has about 18 units -- awoke to the rumbling of fire trucks. The fire gutted two townhouses, including ROBERTS'.
A report in yesterday's Free Press indicating units 99 and 100 were gutted was incorrect, one tenant said yesterday, noting they were 99 and 98.
Beyond some smoke damage, the fire was kept from spreading throughout the complex, owned by London radio personality Steve GARRISON.

FERGUSON, Joseph
In Memory of my Dad Joseph FERGUSON who passed away January 14, It is lonely here without you
I miss you more each day
For life is not the same to me
Since you were called away.
To your resting place I visit
Place flowers there with care
But no one knows the heartache
When I turn and leave you there.
Greatly missed by daughter Shirley, son-in-law Bernie and grandchildren Katelyn and Amanda WALL

ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, The Reverend Dr. Clifford A.S. (1919-2006)
Peacefully at home, surrounded by love on February 27, 2006 in his 87th year after a lengthy illness. He is survived by his wife, Mary SANDERSON, his children: Cherry (Bill WEBSTER) of Newmarket; Kirk (Donna GRIFFITH) and Stuart (Monica HAMILTON), both of Toronto, his brother-in-law, Robert MITCHELL of White Rock, British Columbia and grandchildren: Daryll, Kimberley, Meredith, Gillian and Gwendolyn. Predeceased by his parents, Annie JENNINGS and George ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, his first wife Patricia KIRKPATRICK (1977,) his daughter, Gracie (1981;) his sisters, Grace MITCHELL of Montreal and White Rock (2003) and Doris GROSE of Swift Current (1999) and his brothers, Walter of Langley, British Columbia (2005) and Lloyd of Montreal (1986). Cliff was born in Langham, Saskatchewan and was always fiercely proud of his Saskatchewan roots. He studied theology at St. Andrew's College in Saskatoon and at Union Theological College, Columbia University in New York where he obtained his doctorate with great distinction. Ordained by The United Church of Canada in 1942 at the age of 23, he served pastorates in Dundurn, Sask (1942-44), Third Ave, North Battleford, Saskatchewan. (1947-52), St. Giles, Hamilton (1952-59), Robertson (now Robertson-Wesley), Edmonton (1959-66), Metropolitan, Toronto (1966-75 and Bloor Street, Toronto (1975-86). Cliff's great gift and passion was in conveying the message of the Gospel. This was manifested in radio programmes (Sunday School of the Air in North Battleford and The Good Ship Crusader in Hamilton) as well as two minute weekly spots on Station CFRB (1970-86) in Toronto; a festival of the arts, dayspring at Metropolitan United Church; a controversial sculpture of The Crucified Woman at Bloor Street Church (1979); articles in The United Church Observer (1960's 1990's) and monthly columns in The Toronto Star. Following his retirement in 1986, Cliff was a popular anniversary preacher and retreat leader across the country and a volunteer chaplain at Casey House Hospice for people with A.I.D.S. and Wellesley Hospital's H.I.V./A.I.D.S. wing. He taught at many of the United Church's theological colleges during his ministry and was the author of several books. Cliff travelled extensively in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America; in China, East Germany and Russia and gained on-the-spot understanding of current social and political conditions which informed his preaching. Throughout Cliff's life, singing was an important expression of his faith and love of life and even in his last years when his memory failed him he continued to sing. For over forty years he cottaged on Little Boshkung Lake at Carnarvon in Haliburton, Ontario. For ten and a half years, following a stroke during surgery, Cliff was cared for in his own home. The family is grateful to the many, many Friends, Community Care East York, Bayview Community Hospice and Dr. Ian FERGUSON and Dr. Robert McKELLAR who supported them during this time and made it possible for Cliff to remain at home.

John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Engineer: (1924-2006)
Unsung hero of Canada's Imax success story knew how to make the big-screen technology work
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Montreal -- He was the man in the engine room of the good ship Imax. John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was an engineering guru, a genius at tinkering who was the brains behind making the Imax corporation's giant-screen technology work as well as it did. Years before, he was the wizard who helped keep Expo 67's Labyrinth film project going. And when it was all over, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS went back to his first love -- the humble train.
In the meantime, his other passion remained electronics. As a teenager during the Depression, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's future in telecommunications was foreshadowed when he plied his talent for radio repair in the small town of Sutton in Quebec's Eastern Townships. Neighbours and customers paid 25 cents to have their wonky Radiolas, RCA Victors and Silvertones tinkered back into working order.
At 18, poor eyesight disqualified him from serving in any of the Canadian armed forces during the Second World War. At the suggestion of doctors who advised he spend less time in libraries with his head buried in books, he worked for a year with the Canadian Pacific Railroad and then enrolled at McGill University.
It was while earning his degree in science that he met his wife, Althea McCOY, a likeminded student who became his life-long collaborator. They were both involved in the McGill drama department. Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was in charge of lighting and his future wife was the costume co-ordinator. Their initial collaboration at the McGill Red and White Revue revealed a symbiotic relationship that would often find the couple working side by side."The smartest thing I ever did was to marry him," said writer and archivist Althea DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. "Creighton was my favourite proof reader and copy editor."
The couple married in 1948 and the following year he departed for a career in the Quebec wilderness repairing radio transmitters for Canadian Marconi. He later travelled to England, sent by Marconi, to study the emerging world of television.
When the couple returned to Canada, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS began demonstrating the principles of television at trade fairs. With both of them operating a camera, the duo wowed Toronto audiences at the Canadian National Exhibition in 1950. Althea DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS recalled how aiming the camera at the crowds delighted visitors, who, through closed-circuit monitors, discovered themselves on television for the first time. Commercial television was still a few years away and she lays claim that the experience at the Canadian National Exhibition made her Canada's first female operator of a television camera.
Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's cutting-edge knowledge of the new medium resulted in work as a consultant with the Canadian Broadcasting Company when it first went on the air in 1952. Later, he returned to Canadian Marconi as the engineering manager for Montreal's CFCF radio and in 1961, he supervised the construction of a television transmission tower. Erected at the top of Mount Royal, it broadcast the first television signals when CFCF-television at last went on the air.
Regarded as a technical genius, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was the go-to person hired by the National Film Board of Canada to orchestrate the Labyrinth project for the 1967 world's fair in Montreal. A multiscreen film, In the Labyrinth, was a smash hit at Expo and is considered the precursor to today's large-format films. Using a complicated projection system with three synchronized viewing chambers, it featured stereo sound and a mirrored maze.
Colin Low, the National Film Board of Canada's former head of animation, said that Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS possessed the right mix of flexibility and vigour necessary to handle the madness that In the Labyrinth inspired. "A lot of things, we had never tried before. Creighton was intrigued by it. He made it work. Labyrinth was one of the starting points for Imax technology."
Imax was a revolution in the movie industry. What made it arrestingly different was the sheer size and crispness of the projected image, combined with resonant, multitrack sound systems. No matter what the subject, watching can be viscerally intense -- a fact that directors have exploited with roller-coaster intensity ever since the first Imax title, North of Superior, lit up the media. The format uses the largest film frame in movie history, 10 times the size of conventional 35-mm film. The screens, too, were oversized, as tall as eight storeys.
The system was the brainchild of five Canadian visionaries who toiled for more than a quarter of a century to make Imax Corp. a household word in entertainment. Graeme FERGUSON, Robert KERR, Roman KROITOR, Bill SHAW and Bill BREUKELMAN founded Imax and pioneered the giant-screen, large-format film medium before selling the technology in 1994 to a group of American investors for about $100-million (U.S.).
All the same, few knew the system better than Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. In 1981, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS found himself in France supervising the installation of a new generation of Imax screens. His final Imax project was to co-ordinate the installation of the company's theatre at the Museum of Civilization.
In retirement, he returned to the much less complicated technology of locomotives, and the tracks they travelled down. His interest also left its mark on his marriage, for his wife possessed railway roots of her own ("My father worked for the Canadian National Railway," she said), and together they co-wrote Canadian Railway Records: A Guide for Genealogists, a resource for families with rail connections going back about 150 years.
The DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS manual, composed for family historians, offers tips and resources for recovering historical records of family members via ticket sales and the vast network of railway payrolls, journals, magazines and subsidiary companies. In the introduction, the couple wrote, "this book has been a joint effort but we each have our own areas of expertise. Creighton wrote much of the material on the railway way of life, working conditions and so on. Althea did the archival work checking documents and bibliographical data and wrote about libraries and archives so, inevitably, on occasion we wrote in the first person singular and at other times in the first person plural."
Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS also added a consumer warning: "The railway offers such a variety of intriguing information and experience that there is some aspect that will intrigue almost everyone." In other words, railways are highly addictive and can absorb all your free time and available money.
John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was born on August 15, 1924, in Cowansville, Quebec He died of a congestive heart failure on February 6, 2006 in Ottawa. He is survived by his wife.

BURDSALL, Bernard Henry
By David MORRIS, Page A22
Husband, father, radio amateur. Born October 2, 1920, in Stony Stratford, England. Died April 23, in Kingston, Ontario, of congestive heart failure, aged 85.
Had you asked Bernie in his younger years, he would have described himself, with a twinkle in his eyes, as a male war-bride.
He was conceived in a passing moment of joy -- post-First World War homecoming -- and raised an only child in a household he would later describe as emotionally barren. By his own measure, he was a somewhat obstinate youth, who took refuge from the harshness of home and school in voracious reading and learning -- habits he maintained the rest of his life.
Bernie quit school at 16 to take a job as an office "tea boy," but soon landed a technical apprenticeship position with the General Post Office telephone service. About the same time, he earned an amateur (ham) radio operator licence. His early duties with the General Post Office focused on wiring England for war readiness. He put his radio skills to use copying intercepted Morse code radio transmissions for the Bletchley Park code-breakers. In the early 1940s, he enlisted with the Royal Air Force and was shipped to Guelph, Ontario, for training as a wireless operator/air gunner.
Bernie never tired of telling the story of one fateful moonlit evening in 1942 on a ferry from Port Dalhousie to Toronto. "Do you have the time?" he asked the gorgeous redhead. "Oh, are you English?" she asked in return. One month later, on her 21st birthday, Bernie and Margaret FERGUSON were engaged. For evermore, Moonlight Becomes You was his song for her.
Bernie spent the first three years of married life as wireless operator/air gunner on a Wellington bomber, 40 Squadron, stationed in Italy. At the age of 23, he was a veteran of 37 sorties. Through 1945-46, he was stationed in Egypt and Palestine.
He and Margaret reunited in England following the war, and Katie, the first of five daughters, was born in 1947. The family emigrated to Ottawa in 1948, where Bernie was hired as a technician with Bell Telephone Co. of Canada. Daughter Liz was born in Ottawa. Anne, Marian and Jane followed after Bernie's transfer to Bell's Kingston operation.
The girls love telling stories of growing up with Bernie as disciplinarian (or would-be disciplinarian), shaping the good character of his brood. Such was his reputation with the young men of Kingston's Strathcona Park, that his "no boys in the backyard" policy stood unchallenged.
Bernie wanted his daughters to grow up to be the fine, independent women that they are, so tools and toolboxes were provided. The girls' prowess as drivers and, by extension, his prowess as a driving instructor, remained for him a source of great pride. (Away from the girls, Bernie was quick with a colourful joke or a story involving a far-off relative of Margaret's.)
As boyfriends gave way to sons-in-law, Bernie opted for early retirement from Bell. He continued his long-time involvement with the Kingston and national amateur radio organizations, but also lent his unfaltering energy, commitment and talented hands to the benefit of numerous Kingston community organizations, most particularly the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes. In his quiet time at home he traced both sides of the family tree and penned his war-time memoirs.
Bernie and Margaret, his "first wife" of 63 years, presided over Easter dinner one week before his mercifully quick departure.

ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, The Reverend Dr. Clifford A.S. (1919-2006)
Peacefully at home, surrounded by love on February 27, 2006 in his 87th year after a lengthy illness. He is survived by his wife, Mary SANDERSON, his children: Cherry (Bill WEBSTER) of Newmarket; Kirk (Donna GRIFFITH) and Stuart (Monica HAMILTON), both of Toronto, his brother-in-law, Robert MITCHELL of White Rock, British Columbia and grandchildren: Daryll, Kimberley, Meredith, Gillian and Gwendolyn. Predeceased by his parents, Annie JENNINGS and George ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, his first wife, Patricia KIRKPATRICK (1977,) his daughter, Gracie (1981;) his sisters, Grace MITCHELL of Montreal and White Rock (2003) and Doris GROSE of Swift Current (1999) and his brothers, Walter of Langley, British Columbia (2005) and Lloyd of Montreal (1986). Cliff was born in Langham, Saskatchewan. and was always fiercely proud of his Saskatchewan roots. He studied theology at St. Andrew's College in Saskatoon and at Union Theological College, Columbia University in New York where he obtained his doctorate with great distinction. Ordained by The United Church of Canada in 1942 at the age of 23, he served pastorates in Dundurn, Saskatchewan. (1942-44), Third Ave., North Battleford, Saskatchewan. (1947-52), St. Giles, Hamilton (1952-59), Robertson (now Robertson-Wesley), Edmonton (1959-66), Metropolitan, Toronto (1966-75) and Bloor Street, Toronto (1975-86). Cliff's great gift and passion was in conveying the message of the Gospel. This was manifested in radio programmes (Sunday School of the Air in North Battleford and The Good Ship Crusader in Hamilton) as well as two minute weekly spots on Station CFRB (1970-86) in Toronto; a festival of the arts, dayspring at Metropolitan United Church; a controversial sculpture of The Crucified Woman at Bloor Street Church (1979); articles in The United Church Observer (1960's-1990's) and monthly columns in The Toronto Star. Following his retirement in 1986, Cliff was a popular anniversary preacher and retreat leader across the country and a volunteer chaplain at Casey House Hospice for people with A.I.D.S. and Wellesley Hospital's H.I.V./A.I.D.S. wing. He taught at many of the United Church's theological colleges during his ministry and was the author of several books. Cliff travelled extensively in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America; in China, East Germany and Russia and gained on-the-spot understanding of current social and political conditions which informed his preaching. Throughout Cliff's life, singing was an important expression of his faith and love of life and even in his last years when his memory failed him he continued to sing. For over forty years he cottaged on Little Boshkung Lake at Carnarvon in Haliburton, Ontario. For ten and a half years, following a stroke during surgery, Cliff was cared for in his own home. The family is grateful to the many, many Friends, Community Care East York, Bayview Community Hospice and Dr. Ian FERGUSON and Dr. Robert McKELLAR who supported them during this time and made it possible for Cliff to remain at home. A celebration of Cliff's life will be held at Bloor Street United Church, 300 Bloor St. W. (corner of Bloor and Huron) on Saturday, March 4 at 11: 00 a.m. Visiting will be on Friday, March 3 at Bloor Street United Church from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Donations in Cliff's memory may be made to The Clifford Elliott Spirit of Saskatchewan Ministry Trust Fund, c/o The United Church of Canada, 3250 Bloor Street West, Suite 300, Toronto, Ontario M8X 2Y4.
