HOCHSTRAUSS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-04-03 published
STEPHANIC, Helena (HOCHSTRAUSS)
By Ellen McNEILL and Darcy McNEILL, Page A16
Mother, grandmother, lover of winter. Born July 12, 1906 in Kukujevci, in what is now Serbia and Montenegro. Died October 19, 2005, in London, Ontario, of complications from a fall, aged 99.
When Helena HOCHSTRAUSS was 6, she was so ill that she was measured for a coffin. At that time, she certainly wasn't expected to live for another 93 years. So much of her history occurred in tumultuous times and yet she maintained a passion for life and adventure and displayed an incredible strength of will.
While the First World War did not have a large impact on Helena's day-to-day life as a young child, the national and political landscape changed dramatically beneath her feet. The part of Austro-Hungary in which she lived became part Yugoslavia. An independent woman, Helena studied bookkeeping at a time when many young women did not pursue education. It was during this time that she met her husband, Louis Octavio STEPHANIC. He was waiting on the street corner for her every day when she finished her classes and would not take no for an answer; eventually he wore her down and she agreed to go out with him. They were married in 1926 and had two daughters, Zorah and Deena (our mother).
When the Second World War began, the family's lives, like many others, were irreparably altered. One of first bombings of the war was on a hotel in Belgrade that was known as the place where diplomats and political dignitaries stayed. Helena's sister Cecilia worked there as a telephone operator and was killed in that bombing. Louis became ill and died from tuberculosis. Deena also spent time in a sanatorium with tuberculosis. Helena always felt an extra strong responsibility to her younger daughter due to Deena's chronic ill health; because she was unable to better provide for her and nourish her, and because of the loss of her father at so young an age.
At the end of the war, Helena decided to take her family away. They travelled on foot and in caravans; from one refugee camp to another, taking rides when they were available until they got to Israel where they remained for a few years. Deena immigrated to Canada in 1958, and Helena followed in 1962 to join Deena and her new husband and family.
By that time, our family was living in Haliburton, Ontario Helena worked her way into that small rural Ontario community amazingly well. In no time she had many Friends and a part-time job as a bookkeeper for the local plumber. For a new Canadian not from a northern climate, Helena loved the winter. The snow, the ice, the look and the texture of the world under freshly fallen snow all appealed to her. She continued to go for long walks well into her eighties. She lived by herself, in her own apartment, until her death.
Helena had strong opinions on many things (most things, actually) and she certainly had no hesitation in sharing them with the rest of us. She was a proud Canadian and became engrossed in Canadian politics. She kept current on local events, those things that affected the people she loved, and also on global trends and issues. She was always looking forward to what lay ahead, and rarely reflecting back on what had been, even in the face of enormous personal loss.
Photographs of her as a young woman reveal a special glint her eyes - a characteristic that can still be seen in pictures taken of her just weeks before her death. It's not so much a mischievous glint but her sharp blue eyes are twinkling, her lips pursed after a short intake of breath, head cocked slightly, finger raised, just before she refuted a statement or added another salient point.
Ellen and Darcy are Helena's grandchildren.

GRETZKY suffers another great loss
Mournful times for Coyotes head coach
By Rosie DIMANNO, Columnist
Ottawa -- On the evening, this past Saturday, when hockey was being celebrated coast-to-coast, the most famous native son of the sport had to pick up the phone and deliver yet another blow of sad news to his already grieving father.
"I had to pull my dad out of the hockey game in Edmonton and let him know what had happened," Wayne GRETZKY revealed last night, after the novice National Hockey League coach put his Phoenix Coyotes through a spirited practice at the Corel Centre.
GRETZKY's maternal grandmother, Betty HOCKIN, had just passed away at age 84, barely a fortnight after the death of her daughter, Wayne's mother, Phyllis.
Walter GRETZKY had been in Edmonton to help celebrate the father-son bonds of hockey, in what has become an annual televised spectacle of the national game.
"He came home Sunday morning."
A second family loss will bring Wayne GRETZKY back to his hometown of Brantford tomorrow for his grandmother's funeral.
These have been mournful times.
At Christmas, a visibly distraught GRETZKY dropped everything to hasten to the bedside of a beloved mother stricken with lung cancer. He would spend 10 days away from the game, to support his family and grieve.
"We've had a tough month. Unfortunately, everybody in life has to go through tragedies. We're not the only family that's gone through it."
But he'd barely had time to resume duties behind the bench when the family was swept up in sorrow once more.
"Sad day, sad week, sad month."
Hockey, at least, does provide a comfort, just the routine and distraction of it, coping with a team that is in a struggle to make the playoffs, surrounded by the infectious energy of young players, reminding GRETZKY too of the untroubled boy he'd once been. "Our young guys play hard and they're a real pleasure to be around."
It will be a special occasion this evening -- in a life that's been full of them -- when the Senators host Phoenix. This is where GRETZKY played his final game on Canadian soil six years ago after announcing his retirement.
"That was such an emotional night," he recalled. "Up until that time, only my inner family really knew (about the imminent retirement) and everybody else was sort of guessing.
"I'll never forget the ovation, the reception, that not only I got but my whole family got. I remember my mom and my dad were here, and my kids were here. It was pretty special."
Scrumming with reporters and looking backwards evoked an outpouring of nostalgia. But GRETZKY's eyes lit up especially and his winsome mood elevated when somebody mentioned ceremonies scheduled for Madison Square Garden tomorrow night, where Mark Messier's sweater will be retired.
They were an item, for so many years, GRETZKY and his stalwart ally, the Moose.
"He did so much for the game. He did so much for so many people his work ethic, his unselfishness, his Friendships. It's a bond that everyone seemed to have in those days in Edmonton."
As he has in the past, GRETZKY compared Messier to Gordie Howe. "We never expected to see that sort of a player come along again. But here's a guy who played almost as long as Gordie, probably played a similar game to that of Gordie Howe, and of all the people I knew, loved the game as much as Gordie Howe. So we were lucky in this sport that we were able to have two of these guys come through the games within, like, five years of each other."
With a chuckle, GRETZKY also recalled one particular game when he played against Messier.
"I remember him lining me up and sort of carrying me into the boards. He was telling me to hang on."
How weird, Messier slamming GRETZKY off the puck.
"Really, it sounded and looked worse than it was."
