MINACS, Elaine (DEVERE)
Elaine MINACS passed away in her 61st year on May 17, 2006, at home surrounded by her family. She died peacefully after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Elaine was the founder and executive chair of the board of Minacs Worldwide Inc., headquartered in Toronto. She is survived by her husband Julius MINACS, daughter Andrea MINACS, brother John DEVERE and his wife Janis, sister Yvonne AGUECI and her husband Frank, sister Michelle ALLEN and her husband Chris, stepsister Mandy DEVERE, Aunt Maureen WARNER (of Northolt, Middlesex) and numerous nieces and nephews. Elaine MINACS was born on March 8, 1945, in South Harrow, England. (She became a Canadian citizen years later.) She was the oldest child of John DEVERE and his wife Margaret FLEMING/FLEMMING. From the age of 18, Elaine lived with family Friends in Oshawa and worked at General Motors until her marriage to Julius MINACS in 1965. On March 12, 1973, Elaine and Julius welcomed daughter Andrea Elaine to the family. In September 1981, after Andrea started school, Elaine founded her own company, which was housed in the original Minacs home at 65 Albert Street in Oshawa. Originally a temporary staffing company, Minacs Worldwide, has enjoyed 25 years of continuous growth and now employs approximately 5,000 people, with offices in 20 locations in Canada, the United States, and Europe. Elaine transformed her company into an internationally-recognized organization that provides high-value B.P.O. solutions centered on three core areas of service: contact centres, integrated market services, and back office administration. In 1999, she took the company from a privately-held corporation reporting revenues of $35.9 million in 1998, to a publicly-traded company (TSX: MXW) with reported revenues of $290.5 million in 2005. Over the years, Elaine's entrepreneurial skills have been nationally recognized at both the corporate and personal levels. Minacs has received numerous awards for its industry leadership and business success. Among these are: General Motors 2002 Supplier of the Year; Young Women's Christian Association of Greater Toronto 2002 Woman of Distinction for Entrepreneurship; Ernst and Young 2001 Entrepreneur of the Year; Canadian Professional Sales Association Hall of Fame 2001 Diamond Award for commitment, community involvement and generous charitable contributions; and 1993 Canadian Woman Entrepreneur of the Year for Quality. A strong supporter of children's charities, she was a past member of the Board of Directors of Kids' Help Phone. She has also been the recipient of a number of business excellence awards from the Oshawa Chamber of Commerce and the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade. Elaine was best known for her unfaltering spirit and entrepreneurial drive. She identified new markets where the company could grow and succeed. She faced challenges head-on and welcomed new opportunities to take Minacs into uncharted territory. Resting at the Armstrong Funeral Home, 124 King Street East, Oshawa 905-433-4711, with visitation on Monday, May 22nd and Tuesday, May 23rd from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Further arrangements for visitation and service in Toronto will be confirmed at a later date. Condolences and words for the family may be sent to RememberingElaine@minacs.com. The family has requested that any donations made in Elaine's memory be made to her favourite charities: In Canada, Cottage Dreams (www.cottagedreams.org), or the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada (www.ccac-accc.ca) In the U.S., the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org) or the Mayo Clinic (mayoclinic.org).
