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

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.

MARQUIS, Jacques Henri (May 26, 1927-June 28, 2006)
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Jacques. He was born in Quebec City. He spent 5 years in the Cdn Merchant Navy as a radio operator which included the final 2 years of World War 2. He changed his birth certificate to 1925 in order to be accepted. In 1951 he joined the Royal 22nd Regiment - Cdn Army. Officer's training was in Kingston and he left with the rank of lieutenant. The 5 years in the army included a tour of duty in Korea. In civilian life he took a job working on the Distant Early Warning line and then studied sciences at McGill University. His career was in the actuarial and insurance world. One aspect of his work involved setting up the Quebec Pension Plan which was the prototype for the Canada Pension Plan. His carefree single life ended in 1967 when he married Grace STELTER in Montreal and sailboats and sailing became an integral part of their lives, first at the Pointe Claire Yacht Club on Lac St. Louis in Montreal (Jacques was on the executive for some years) then on "Vinga" (a 33 foot sailboat) where they sailed to Florida and the Bahamas for a number of years. In 1989 they moved to Sechelt, British Columbia where Jacques enjoyed tennis, hiking, travelling, concerts and being a member of a music group. He will be missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Grace, his brother Jean-Paul (Marcelle), his nephews Paul and Pierre, his beloved mother-in-law Elsie STELTER and his brothers-in-law Gil (Sally), Al (Joy), Ray (Bonnie), Wayne (Alice) and their families.

LAW, Alan Joseph Woodforth, P.Eng.
Alan Joseph Woodforth LAW died peacefully at home, in the arms of his wife and best friend Nicki, on February 11, 2006. He was 74 years old. Born on January 21, 1932 in Cheshire, England, Alan graduated at age 19 from Nottingham University with a degree in Mining Engineering. During his final year at university, Alan applied for a student position at Sigma Gold Mine in Val D'Or, Quebec and left England in 1952 for Canada, a life long dream. After working with Sigma for three years, Alan went to Manitouwadge to work for Noranda Mines, Geco Division producing copper and zinc, where he worked as an underground surveyor, and later as a layout engineer. In 1958, he moved to Elliot Lake as the Planning Engineer for Rio Algom Mines - Milliken Division, and in 1959, on a blind date at the old Gatineau Club in the Ottawa /Hull area where Della Reese was performing, Alan met Diane McGLADE, affectionately known as Nicki, whom he married on June 25, 1960. It was at Milliken Mines in Elliot Lake that Alan met a number of people who would direct the course of his life and career - Dale and Norma HENDRICK, Mervyn UPHAM, George STENNING, Carl ASHENHURST, Ted CHEESEMAN, Dennis BRIDGER, Alex McNEILL, and many others. Alan moved quickly through the ranks at Milliken Mines holding the position of Chief Mining Engineer until the mine closed in 1964. Nicki and Alan then moved to Nenagh, Ireland in 1964 where he developed a lead-zinc mine as the Chief Engineer for Mogul of Ireland. He returned to Canada in 1966 to work as Chief Engineer at Newmont's Granduc Mines Ltd, and engineered an eleven-mile tunnel that had to be driven under intervening mountain ranges and glaciers. The tunnel then connected to a mountain road that had to be built to Stewart, the nearest port, 32 miles away. The Granduc project achieved engineering goals unprecedented in the history of mining. In 1970, Mervyn Upham, then president of Selco Mining Corporation, invited Alan to join him as Director of Engineering in Toronto. Known by many as the best mining engineer in the industry, he was given many global assignments including the development of the mine design in 1973 of the Newmont-Mount Isa Agnew nickel project in western Australia. Back in Canada, until his retirement in 1992 from Selco, later known as BHP Billiton, he engineered the development of the Quebec Selbaie copper zinc mine and the South Bay copper zinc mine in western Ontario. All of his mines made major contributions to the well being and the economics of their respective locations. Alan was excellent at any endeavour he took on whether it was curling, tennis, golf, bridge, snooker, toastmaster and drama clubs, model trains and woodworking. He was, in particular, a smiling connoisseur of good Scotch. Alan was a member of the Professional Engineers Association of Ontario, the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, the Engineer's Club of Toronto, and the Ontario Club. Although he excelled as a mining engineer, Alan's gift of recital, particularly of the Battle of Hastings, and numerous other epic poems was closely matched by his singing of Danny Boy, performed beautifully with granddaughter Emily TAILOR/TAYLOR, a mere three weeks before his death. Exceptionally bright, kind, modest, and witty, Alan not only led the world of engineering science in some of the largest and most ambitious mines around the world, he was at all times unfailingly devoted to his wife, his children, his grandchildren and all his family and Friends. Alan is survived by his devoted wife of 46 years, Diane (Nicki) LAW (née McGLADE,) his beloved daughters Elizabeth Ann (Robert VOGTLE;) Diane Millicent (Greg DAVIES,) and Nancy-Jane (Iain TAILOR/TAYLOR;) by grandchildren Mathew, Jennifer and Laura VOGTLE; Emily and Simon TAILOR/TAYLOR, and Sean DAVIES. Alan leaves behind his two brothers in England, John Geoffrey LAW and David Thomas LAW. He is dearly loved by his brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and 29 nieces and nephews. No one was blessed with more loyal or caring Friends than Alan, many spanning decades of memorable years with Alan and Nicki at the cottage in Muskoka or around the bridge table. The LAW family gratefully acknowledges the commitment and care delivered by cardiologist Dr. Anthony GRAHAM for over 25 years; and by the wonderful home care workers from the Etobicoke Community Care Access Centre. Funeral services will be held at St. Georges On-The-Hill, 4600 Dundas Street West on Tuesday, February 21, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, it was Alan's preference that any donations be directed to the St. Michael's Hospital Foundation, c/o Dr. Gordon Moe's Research Program in Congestive Heart Failure, 30 Bond Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5B 1W8
