A student of Mona Bates, she later studied with Eduard Steuermann in New York and Nadia Boulanger in Fountainbleau. She would go on to play at Town Hall (1945) and Carnegie Hall in New York (1950), also performing in Europe. For many years, she was the musical director of Toronto's Spring Thaw. After moving to New York in 1963, she expanded her repertoire to writing musicals, becoming the first Canadian to write a Broadway show when she collaborated with Ray Jessel on Baker Street in 1964. In 1967 she wrote Hellzapoppin' for Expo 67. GRUDEFF and Jessel also collaborated on the musical Life Can Be-Like Wow (1969) for the Charlottetown Festival. Her compositions were recorded by the likes of Louis Armstrong and Richard Burton. She returned to Toronto in 1971, teaching at the Royal Conservatory of Music before briefly resuming her concert career in the late '70s, including performances in Bulgaria, her parents' birthplace. She continued to teach privately for the rest of her life.

GRUDEFF, Marian Helen, 79
Pianist made concert debut at the age of 11
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
Toronto -- Marian Helen GRUDEFF, a pianist, composer and teacher, has died in Toronto following major abdominal surgery. She was Ms. GRUDEFF made her concert debut playing piano with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at Massey Hall in 1938, at the age of 11, with Liszt's Hungarian Fantasy, conducted by Sir Ernest MacMillan.
A student of Mona Bates, she later studied with Eduard Steuermann in New York and Nadia Boulanger in Fountainbleau, France.
As a concert pianist she performed in New York at the Town Hall (1945) and Carnegie Hall (1950), and in many European venues.
After she married and her son, the chef Christopher McDONALD, was born, she worked for several years in the late 1950s as the musical director of Toronto's Spring Thaw revue.
She moved to New York in 1963 and became the first Canadian to write a Broadway show when she collaborated with Ray Jessel (a musician whose work she had championed at Spring Thaw) on the music and lyrics for Baker Street, a musical about the mythical detective Sherlock Holmes that was loosely based on Arthur Conan Doyle's stories. It premiered at the Broadway Theatre on February 16, 1965, and ran for 311 performances.
In 1967, she and Mr. Jessel wrote the words and music for a revival of Hellzapoppin' for Expo 67 in Montreal. The duo also collaborated on the musical Life Can Be Like Wow for the Charlottetown Festival in 1969. Louis Armstrong and Richard Burton were among the performers who recorded her songs.
After returning to her native Toronto in 1971, she began teaching at the Royal Conservatory of Music before briefly resuming her concert career in the late 1970s, including performances in Bulgaria, her parents' birthplace.
A gifted teacher, she had scores of private students to whom she continued to give lessons until shortly before she entered Sunnybrook Hospital for surgery in late October. She died on November 4. A celebration of her life will take place at Eglinton St. George's United Church (35 Lytton Blvd.) today at 2 p.m.

Marian GRUDEFF, 79: Musical prodigy
Child prodigy made concert debut at 11
Her career included Broadway musicals
By Debra BLACK, Staff Reporter
For Marian GRUDEFF the place she loved to be more than anywhere else in the world was behind a piano, tickling the ivories and singing George Gershwin or Jerome Kern.
The renowned Canadian musician and composer -- whose work was recorded by both Louis Armstrong and Richard Burton -- died November 4 from organ failure at age 79.
Up until very recently, she had continued teaching piano and coaching an amateur vocal group in her home in Toronto.
"She was a perfectionist and it was something she learned as a child from a very young age being groomed to be a concert pianist," recalls her son Christopher McDONALD, a Toronto restaurateur.
"She did something that was very rare musically. She could play the piano and chitchat at the same time. I asked her one day while we were messing around if she could improvise a fugue and read The New Yorker out loud at the same time. She pulled it off."
GRUDEFF, a Toronto native whose parents moved here from Bulgaria, was a child prodigy, making her concert debut at 11 with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at Massey Hall. She performed Liszt's Hungarian Fantasy on the piano. Behind the conductor's baton was Sir Ernest MacMillan -- the godfather of Canadian music.
GRUDEFF went on to have an outstanding concert career, performing at Town Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York in the 1950s as well as concerts in Europe. She eventually gave up touring and became the musical director of Toronto's Spring Thaw -- a musical comedy revue.
There she met Ray JESSEL, a musician and composer, who eventually became her writing partner. The two of them wrote the music for Broadway show Baker Street in 1964. She became the first Canadian to write a Broadway show.
GRUDEFF and JESSEL also wrote Hellzapoppin' for Expo '67 in Montreal, which starred Soupy Sales, and the musical Life Can Be -- Like Wow, based on Le Bourgeois gentilhomme by Molière, for the Charlottetown Festival in 1969.
In the '70s she briefly resumed her concert career and taught at the Royal Conservatory of Music before teaching privately. "She taught hundreds of people piano from 1971 on," said McDONALD. "Basically she devoted herself to piano teaching. My mother became their friend, their mentor, their confidante."
The picture Friends and family paint is of a dynamic, enthusiastic woman devoted to her art. "Marian was an immensely enthusiastic person. … but she would never let me get away with second-best," said JESSEL, her long-time musical collaborator who now performs as a cabaret singer in New York.
"She was an impeccable musician and also was very fussy about the way our words went. She was magical when she was at the piano singing the songs of Rodgers and Hart.
"She was fun-loving and loved a good joke. We had a circle of Friends when Baker Street was on and we would gather at the Russian Tea Room. Often she would be one of the livelier members."
"She had very high standards so she was demanding," said Erika FISHER, a family physician from Toronto who was a pupil of GRUDEFF's and later became a friend. "She recognized talent and supported that as much as possible," said FISHER.
"The wonderful thing about Marian… she would always gravitate to a piano no matter where she went… she would play and sing and lead anybody who wanted to join her. That's where she came to life.
"She was a gifted, feisty, wonderful person with a big personality. She was magnetic."
GRUDEFF leaves her son and her sister Lillian GRUDEFF.

GREEN, Kathy " Kati" (née KATZ)
By Bonnie GOLDBERG and Adam ABRAMSON, Page A20
Wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, cook. Born December 11, 1925, in Romania. Died April 20 in Toronto, of heart failure, aged 80.
Kati KATZ was a young girl growing up in Romania with her parents, baby sister, and two brothers, when the family was tragically ripped apart by the Holocaust. Of the KATZ family, only 16-year-old Kati and her older brother Karchi survived.
But along came Kati's prince. After serving in the Czechoslovakian army, Jimmy was busy feeding the survivors of the war. As the story goes, Kati did not have any shoes, so he bought her a pair. They soon were married, beginning an enduring 61-year love affair.
Kati was a resilient woman. She carried her infant daughter on her body, across the ravaged terrain of Europe to get to a displaced persons camp in Naples, Italy, from where they boarded a ship to Canada. At the Canadian border, Imre, Kati and Marika GRUEN became Jimmy, Kathy and Mary GREEN. With no English, no prospects and few contacts, they settled in Toronto. The Fifties were tough as Jimmy and Kathy struggled to build a life in downtown Toronto, working hard as dressmakers. In 1958, Kathy gave birth to her son Sidney, named for Kathy's late father.
The Sixties were a time of prosperity and happiness. Jimmy's new waste-disposal business was thriving and they had many Friends. Kathy was reunited with her brother Karchi when he and his wife Rosi emigrated to Canada in 1966. The year before Karchi came, Mary got married. Fred spent many nights at the dinner table in Kathy's house, being urged by his mother-in-law to eat more vegetables.
Kathy became a grandmother at the young age of 44 in 1969. She immediately became "chief" caregiver to her two grandchildren, Bonnie and Jay. Kathy's son Sidney, 12 years younger than Mary, could always be counted on to entertain his young niece and nephew.
Life was good. Her loving relationship with Jimmy was the envy of their Friends. She fed him chocolate cake for breakfast, cooked his borscht the way he liked it, and taught him the fine art of vacuuming. Kathy was a patient mother, active grandmother and an effortless cook. Her family craved the delicacy simply called "Bubby's chicken," the paprikash and goulash that tasted like the old country, and her near-medicinal chicken soup. When Sidney married in 1982, Kathy developed a remarkably close relationship with her daughter-in-law, Simmy. When their kids (Justin, Dylan and Taryn) were born, Kathy and Jimmy basked in this new generation, defined by winters at the Florida condo and regular Friday-night dinners at The Pickle Barrel.
But then came a more difficult phase of life. Jimmy took care of Kathy as her health failed. Just as she did as a teenager in Auschwitz, Kathy fought hard and had many miraculous recoveries from several serious ailments. Through it all, Kathy and Jimmy never missed an episode of The Young and the Restless.
Kathy had much joy through her pain, celebrating the birth of her four great-grandchildren, Arly, Ethan, Coby and Remy. She described each one as the most beautiful child born on this Earth. And as long as they had eaten, she was happy.
Kathy rallied in early April to attend the Passover Seder at her daughter Mary's house. She died just over a week later. Kathy rarely sat down to the meals she cooked for her family. She hovered, making sure their plates were full. This can be equated with her inability to exhale until her children were cared for, with her inability to relax until she knew those close to her were safe. Kathy has now finally exhaled: she knows her family is safe.
Bonnie is Kathy GREEN's oldest grandchild. Adam is Bonnie's husband.

Memories of "Grandad" will be cherished by Sally and Jake MORGAN (Mercedes SALMON,) Laura and Rob GRUNDY and Sam and Maggie-Rene GRUNDY- GLYNN. Predeceased by his parents Henry and Hilda, Robert will be greatly missed by his brother Donald (Faye,) brother-in-law Steve POWER, many nieces and nephews, Friends, neighbours and former co-workers. Born at home near Burton-On-Trent, England weighing just 2½ pounds , he immigrated to Canada as a child, living in Windsor, Ontario for 80 years. He graduated from Sandwich Collegiate and then served with the Royal Canadian Air Force in World War 2 spending two years overseas as a radar mechanic. He made life-long Friends at John Wyeth&Bros. where he supervised the dispensing section for most of the 44 years he was with the company. He was an active member of the Trinity United church for 30 years and will be best remembered there as the leader of the 13th cub pack for a number of years. Bob and Mary shared a wonderful life together passing on to their children and grandchildren the great gifts of love, music and laughter. He was an entertainer singing and playing guitar for a time on CKLW radio's "Sons of the Saddle" and he amused countless youngsters and adults as a ventriloquist with his trusty dummy "Waldo". He was a "do-it-your-selfer" with an insatiable curiosity for the "way things work" resulting in a number of remarkable inventions. His passion for history, art and politics was surpassed only by his deep reverence for nature. He was a bike-rider, camper, sailor, and environmentalist but most of all he simply liked to have his hands in the earth. Visitation will take place at the Windsor Chapel Funeral Home, 1700 Tecumseh Rd. E. on Thursday, July 6, 2006 from 2-4 and from 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service will be on Friday, July 7, 2006 at 10 a.m. in the Chapel. Interment to follow at Victoria Memorial Gardens.

In memory of William "Bill" GRUNDY, husband, father, father-in-law and Grandpa.
Two years ago today
God looked around his garden
And He saw an empty space
He then looked down upon the earth
And He saw your tired face
He knew that you were suffering
He knew that you were in pain
He knew that you would never get well Upon this earth again
So He closed your weary eyelids
Then He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
Always remembered by your family "Bill". Carol, Shelley, Sheri, Scott, Brenda, James, Jo, Christian, Ashley, Josh and Lyndsay.
