JARVIS, Anita Agnes, B.Sc., M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P., C.C.
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Doctor Anita JARVIS on June 25, 2006. Anita was born in Szeged, Hungary. Her father was a professional engineer and entrepreneur. In addition to Hungarian, at age 3 she learned to speak German and English, to which she later added French. She loved to spend the summers swimming and rowing in the River Tisza. After the war she started to study chemistry in Budapest, but by 1949 she knew that she could not possibly live in a communist country pretending to beliefs that she did not share. So, in spite of the close to impenetrable Iron Curtain, she managed to escape to Austria from where two years later, in 1951, she emigrated to Canada. She finished her chemistry degree in Montreal, where she also met her husband Gregory, to whom she was married for 55 years. Their daughter, Ingrid, was born in Montreal, just before they moved to Ottawa where Gregory enrolled in medicine. Anita also followed Gregory into medicine. She graduated as an M.D., with summa cum laude, just three weeks after the birth of her second daughter, Arianna. They moved to Toronto following her internship where, in the shadow of the cold war at its height, Anita embarked on her second successful career: that of a researcher on the health impacts of radioactive fallout. After publishing close to twenty refereed papers, she decided to launch her third and longest career: that of a dermatologist. She practiced dermatology for some thirty years, much of it in partnership with her daughter Ingrid and with her close friend Peter HACKER. Her final career, running parallel with her dermatology practice, was that of grandmother to Spencer and Colin in whom she invested all the infinite love of which she was capable. In January 2005 she became seriously ill. She died peacefully on June 25, 2006. She was an exceptionally giving person who had a lifelong love affair with her husband, adored her daughters, and loved her brother and his family. But she also had a number of acquired daughters for whom she also became a mother figure: Sheila MURRAY, Iona JAFFE, Rozalia PETROVICS, and Dijana OLIVER. To all of these, and to her close Friends, she will be irreplaceable. A private service has taken place.

JAFFRAY, Adam George
Peacefully on Monday, March 27th, 2006 in his 83rd year, at The Woodhaven in Markham. Loving father of Ian Charles (Michelle TOCHER) and Mary Jane (Bruce MATTHEWS,) and greatly devoted Dada and Granddad to his beloved grandchildren, Chelsey Joyce and Gregory Adam. Predeceased by his wife Joyce Irene (née MERRICK) in 1974, sister Eileen NAYLOR in 1998, and parents John and Helen. An accountant by trade, Adam was a longtime employee of Simpsons in Toronto. A supremely gifted artist, "Loh Cho" was a member of the Sumi-E Society and the Japanese Cultural Centre, where he pursued his love of watercolour painting. He leaves a lasting legacy through his extensive collection of paintings and other art. A quiet and humble man, he will be remembered with great affection by everybody who knew him, especially his small circle of longtime Friends which includes Keith Caskey. His journey here has ended, but we are certain it continues happily in another place where he is reunited with mom, a tennis match awaits, and all the scotch is single malt! Friends may call on Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home, 6150 Yonge Street (atGoulding, south of Steeles). A Memorial Service will be held in the chapel on Thursday, March 30th at 1: 00 p.m. Private family interment. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
