FRIEDLICH, Lewis
In his 106th year, and 80th year of marriage, left us peacefully in his sleep at Baycrest Hospital on October 2, 2006. The patriarch of the Friedlich family survived the first and second world wars and nazi persecution with most of his family in Hungary, escaped from the communist regime and started a new life from scratch in Canada with his wife and two sons. He leaves behind a legacy of a large family of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a great humanitarian, who no matter how short of funds always wanted to help the less fortunate. Family had always been the focus of his life to pave the way for the next generation at often great personal sacrifices. He will be sadly missed by his beloved wife Aurelia. He was a loving father to Steven FRIEDLICH, Georgine FRIEDLICH- ROSMAN, Claire FRIEDLICH- MARKUS and Doctor Tom FRIEDLICH (deceased) and cherished his grandchildren Joey and Linda FRIEDLICH; Marty and Janice FRIEDLICH; Michele and Stuart POLLOCK Diane BETEL; Ruthie and Chad BAYNE and Monica and Michael COHEN. He was a devoted great-grandfather to Jessica, Joshua, Justin, Jaclyn and Tommy FRIEDLICH; Michael, Jordan and Hannah BETEL; Matthew and Sarah POLLOCK and Will COHEN. Lewis also leaves behind his sister Sara KAVENSTOCK and her family in Israel; the Kepecs/Fixler families in Hungary and the Sardi family in Budapest and is predeceased by his brother Tibor FRIEDLICH (Mauthausen) and his sisters Iren SZABOVSZKI and Aranka BAN. Services were held at Beth Tzedec Synagogue on Tuesday October 3 at 2: 00 p.m. Interment Beth Tzedec Memorial Park. Shiva at 355 St. Clair Avenue West, Apt. 605, afternoons only. If desired, donations may be made to the Lewis Friedlich Memorial Fund, c/o The Benjamin Foundation, 3429 Bathurst Street, Toronto, Ontario M6A 2C3, 416-780-0324. Thank you for the loving care to all the staff at Baycrest giving quality to his last days.

PEARN, Patricia Louise (née BETTERS)
Our sweet Pat passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, 21 October, 2006, early in the morning, in Toronto. Daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, wife, sister-in-law, god mother, mother, mother-in-law, fairy god aunty, lover of children, committed volunteer, trail blazing banker, and a dear and loyal friend to many, near and far. Always a prairie girl at heart, Pat loved nature, the harvest season, the wind and the sky. She was well read, well travelled, well informed and no matter what, always well turned out. An inveterate baker, adventuresome cook, imaginative gardener and gracious host, Pat's creations were readily shared and continuously anticipated, even if it meant having to play a board game or two before or after enjoying! A quick and bright mind, sharp wit, vast vocabulary, wonderful sense of humour, playfulness, competitive but fair play nature, leadership and management capabilities, kindness, generosity, energy and determined spirit served her well both personally and professionally. Our hearts are broken and her physical absence leaves a huge void but we are comforted in knowing she remained independent and self-determining to the end. In keeping with Pat's wishes, a graveside service and interment have been held and we are gratefully declining all things floral in favour of tribute contributions, should you be so inclined, to: Sunnybrook Hospital Foundation in aid of Geriatric Day Hospital 2075 Bayview Avenue, Room H332, Toronto, Ontario M4N 3M5 Sincere thanks to neighbours, Friends and professionals, who have supported, cared for and encouraged Pat, particularly in the last few years. She deserved more time but we know she's off to see her beloved Spence. Godspeed Mom.
