STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA, Georgina " Jirina"
Georgina died in Toronto on October 3, 2006 at the age of 83, after suffering for several years with Alzheimer's disease. She is remembered by her husband of 61 years Jan; her children, Georgina STEINSKY- SCHWARTZ (Irwin), Jane FOREST (Alan), John (Brenda) and her grandchildren Katrina, Michael, Sasha, Misha, and Anthony. Her 1930's Olympic swimming dream was dashed by the German occupation and her life further altered by the 1948 Communist revolution in Czechoslovakia. Escaping communist persecution, she and the Steinsky family immigrated to Canada in 1950. Thereafter, Georgina lived between the new and the old worlds. The move to Canada was difficult for her, but she gained much satisfaction from the opportunities the new homeland brought for her children. She mourned the loss of her native country. She kept the positive aspects of its memory alive in her community activities, in the stories she told her children and grandchildren, and in her writing and intellectual pursuits under the pen name Inka Smutna. Active in the cultural life of the Toronto Czech expatriate community, she was involved with the Women's Council of the Czechoslovak National Association. She was respected for her work for the Czech weekly, Novy Domov, which she edited for several years. After the restoration of democracy to Czechoslovakia in 1989, she was recognized by her peers in her hometown of Hradec Kralove with a publication of her poems. Her life bears witness to those who undergo dramatic transitions for the benefit of subsequent generations. Her writings will live with us as a testimony to her strong intellect and to her romantic, whimsical sensibility. Thanks to all those who helped to care for her in her final years. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 4-8 p.m. on Monday, October 9th. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, October 10th at 11 o'clock in the Chapel at Providence Healthcare Centre, 3276 St. Clair Avenue East (at Warden Avenue). Instead of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to St. Wenceslaus Roman Catholic Church, 496 Gladstone Avenue, Toronto M6H 3H9

PATTON, George Lloyd, Captain (Ret'd), M.C., E.M. and bar, P.Eng.
(December 2, 1916-December 12, 2006)
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Lloyd, just 10 days after celebrating his 90th birthday. Lloyd was predeceased by his wife Marjorie in 1987, and his wife Tootie SCHWARTZ in 1994. Lloyd leaves behind his four children Valerie (Gordon), Lorraine (Ken), Greg (Sandie), Maureen (Geoff), his eight grandchildren Gavin, Marjie (Derek), Tanya, Paul (Natalie), Krista (Byron), Kendra (Hayden), Graeme, Emily and great-grand_son Maddox. Lloyd is also survived by the Schwartz family and his dear Friends Beanie, Fran and Bess. Lloyd began his life on the prairies and graduated in 1939 from the University of Manitoba in Electrical Engineering. During his university years he was very active in track and field, the Canadian Officers Training Corps and cultivating his relationship with his sweetheart Marge. They were married in 1940, 10 months later Valerie was born, 1 year later duty called and Lloyd left to fight in the war, serving in Italy and N.W. Europe until 1945. Lloyd was awarded the Military Cross for his role in tank recovery under fire at the last battle for Cassino, Italy, while serving as Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Officer attached to the Ontario Tank Regiment, 1st Canadian Armoured Brigade. After the war Lloyd, Marge and Valerie packed up and moved west, settling in North Vancouver. Lloyd worked at Cemco Electric until 1961 when he co-founded Patton and Cooke Ltd., manufacturers of high voltage industrial electrical equipment, still a successful business today with son Greg (Dad's pride and joy) at the helm. Retirement gave Dad time to enjoy travel, golf, oil painting and playing the organ. Unfortunately, Mum died too soon. Within a few years Dad met Tootie, another prairie soul, and the two of them made haste to enjoy their short time together. Alone again, Dad filled his days with good Friends and family. Five years ago he slipped on ice, broke a hip and his lifestyle was forever altered. Always an optimist, he made the best of his new station and settled right into his new life at George Derby Centre. He enjoyed playing the piano for the music group, painting, trivia, playing crib and most of all visiting with family and Friends. Special thanks to Lloyd's Friends, caregivers and staff at George Derby. Dad was a man of great courage and integrity. He was our hero. His kindness and generosity were returned to him in the many wonderful relationships he had with those whose paths he crossed. Most of all, he will be remembered for his great sense of humour, his enjoyment of a good joke and a belly shaking chortle. Arrividerci, old chap. If we don't see you in the future, we'll see you in the pasture! A service will be held at 1: 00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 19 at Hollyburn Funeral Home, 1807 Marine Dr., West Vancouver.

Poet loved her homeland
Reminisced about home country, lost freedoms
Czechoslovakia never forgotten after fleeing in '49
By Meghan WATERS, Staff Reporter
Georgina STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA fled communist-controlled Czechoslovakia as a young woman, but her children say she never stopped lamenting her lost homeland.
Their mother was a prolific poet who expressed her sadness through verse. She wrote in Czech under the pen name Inka SMUTNA, which translates to "sad Inka." Her poetry was both romantic and personal, and ranged from dark to whimsical, her eldest daughter Georgina STEINSKY- SCHWARTZ recalled.
She wrote of her adopted country, too, about spring coming to the Leaside neighbourhood or an ode to Toronto called "A Song From Her People" -- a poem that was presented in honour of Mayor Nathan Phillips in 1961.
Daughter Georgina STEINSKY- SCHWARTZ read the poem aloud at its presentation, including the lines, "How we love to see your tallest structures/ Scraping sky in distant autumn haze!/ We're coming home in time for Exhibition/ Refreshed again by northern holidays."
Two of STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA's poems were included in an anthology of Czech writers in exile called Taste of a Lost Homeland. Vera Borkovec, a retired professor from American University in Washington D.C., edited the compilation. She said STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA's poems were reminisces of her home country and lost freedoms.
STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA was never fully comfortable in her adopted country, her children said. She came to Canada in April 1950 via Pier 21 in Halifax after fleeing Czechoslovakia in 1949 with her husband and oldest daughter.
They'd spent nine months in a German refugee camp after their escape, orchestrated by her father-in-law, following the 1948 communist revolution in Czechoslovakia.
Dozens of family members fled, but not STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA's mother or grandmother.
If they had stayed, however, STEINSKY- SCHWARTZ said her father and grandfather would have been jailed -- they were considered capitalists because of their thriving textile business.
"She knew she'd done the right thing, because her children would have a better life," said STEINSKY- SCHWARTZ.
STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA's second child, Jane, was born in 1951. John, the family's "happy accident," was not born until 1965.
"Her first duty was always to her husband and her children. It was not a hedonistic or narcissist approach to life," said STEINSKY- SCHWARTZ.
Apart from her poetry, STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA edited Canada's Czech newspaper, Novy Domov, which means "new homeland." Every Sunday, she would spread the New York Times out on the dining room table especially its "Week in Review" section -- and look for articles that might be relevant to the expatriate Czech community.
"She had a really uncanny ability to have a sense of when something significant was happening in the world," said her daughter-in-law Brenda STEINSKY.
Although STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA sorely missed the country she left behind, the fall of communism in 1989 brought her little solace.
STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA had been missed during the years of communist rule. Her daughter said there was a network of her mother's childhood Friends who published a book of her poems: "A whole network that never forgot her."
Her mother was glad to be reunited with her Friends, STEINSKY- SCHWARTZ said, "but she was like a lost soul. It was not the world she knew."
As a young girl, STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA was the apple of her grandparents' eye. Her father, an academic, died when she was young.
The bright and serious girl learned the classics, Greek, and Latin from her grandfather.
She lived by a Latin saying that means, "A sound mind and a sound body." She excelled in her studies and was accepted to medical school just before World War 2. Then the Nazis took over and shut down the universities.
"They didn't want the population to get too smart under their watch," said her son John STEINSKY.
STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA was also a standout athlete named to her country's national swimming team. She planned to attend the 1940 Olympics, but they were cancelled after the start of the war.
As a young woman, STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA awoke every morning to the clatter of horses' hooves on the cobblestone streets outside her window.
She later learned that an avid horseman -- who would later become her husband -- was responsible for the clatter; his family kept a stable of horses beside the car garage in their town of Hradec Kralove.
The two attended the same liberal arts-oriented high school, and they met through dancing lessons.
Their first date was at a skating rink in December 1940. STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA did not show up for a second skating rink date, but the pair met again at a dance in March 1941.
Jan STEINSKY proposed later that year and they were married in 1945. The wedding should have been a lavish affair, but it was held quietly, in a private chapel to avoid the communists' ire, STEINSKY- SCHWARTZ said.
The pair was married for 61 years before STEINSKY- SEHNOUTKA's death this month, at age 83. She leaves her husband, three children and five grandchildren.

FOLEY, Christopher Columba
Passed away at home, on Good Friday, April 14, 2006, at the age of 80, in the High Park neighbourhood where he lived for more than 40 years. Christopher was born in Kells, County Meath, Ireland on May 10, 1925. He was the beloved father of Margaret FOLEY and devoted husband to his late wife, Anne Teresa, née CLIFFORD. He is survived by his loving wife Marie Terese, née BONENFANT. Christopher was known affectionately as Christy by his wide circle of Friends, many of whom shared his passion for Irish culture. His was a life marked by a devotion to those institutions that nurtured the values he held dear, among them, the Catholic Church, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and numerous Irish social organizations. Although he moved away from his native Ireland as a teenager, Christy carried his roots with him wherever he went. He flew to Canada in 1948 on one of the early trans-Atlantic flights in search of greater opportunity. It was in Toronto that his enterprising spirit rose to the fore. Christy worked for C.N. Rail and the Royal York Hotel. Saving enough to buy his first home within six months, Christy turned it into yet another opportunity - becoming a landlord and giving other young Irish men a roof over their heads. He worked with the Metro Toronto Waterworks Department for 30 years and continued a close relationship with fellow retirees through the rest of his life. Family, work and his many community activities filled his days. Sickness did nothing to quell his stubborn streak nor dash his great love of travel. Christy will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. He leaves behind his cherished sisters-in-law Margaret HERRING, Evelyn FOLEY and longtime family friend, Mildred CREGAN. He is also survived by his loving nephews and nieces and their families: Ray FOLEY, Ann PALEN, Brian and Thomas HEGARTY, Thomas CARROLL, Peter, Gerard and Michael O'LOUGHLIN and Angela BYRNE. Christy, the youngest of six children born to Margaret SMITH and Thomas FOLEY, is predeceased by all his siblings, Kathleen, Gerty, May, Lily and brother Paddy. Special thanks to his doctor, Eckhart SCHWEIHOFER and Margaret GORECKI, the home care worker who became such a good friend. Visitation for our beloved Christy will be held Tuesday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 19 from 2-4 and 7- 9 p.m. at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, Toronto, at Windermere Ave., east of Jane subway. Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, April 20 at 10: 30 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 3055 Bloor Street West. In lieu of flowers, donations in the name of Christopher Foley to the St. Vincent de Paul Society or ShareLife would be much appreciated.
