RAICUS, Ethel (1920-2006)
Ethel RAICUS - artist, educator, scholar, translator, cousin, friend and mentor died Tuesday, April 11, 2006. Raised by her mother, Slaava, Ethel's passion for art began at an early age, inspired by Doris McCarthy and Arthur Lismer. One of the first women graphic artists in advertising, she later became a painter in her own right. Ethel was elected to the Ontario Society of Artists in 1963. Ethel was a woman of many passions. Her idealism for a Jewish state compelled her to live and work in Israel in the early 1950s. Ethel was a scholar who became principal of the Holy Blossom Hebrew School. Later in life, she honed her skills in Yiddish, translating stories for journals and a book collection. Ethel was an opera buff and travelled with the family to Vienna and New York to hear Adrianne Pieczonka sing. She was so looking forward to the Gala opening of the Canadian Opera Company, but it was not to be. Ethel was loved and admired by cousins Raizel and Sulie SPECTOR, Elizabeth and Neil COOPER, Bill and the late Bryna PARK, and Arnold and Dina SIMONOFF; the Kates family; and by her second cousin Mavis PIECZONKA and her family. Ethel crafted a life rich in experience and relationships she will be missed by her many Friends and colleagues. Ethel will be buried from Holy Blossom Temple, 1950 Bathurst Street, on Sunday, April 16, 2006 at 10: 30 a.m. Interment at Holy Blossom Memorial Park. If desired, donations may be made to the Ethel Raicus Memorial Fund c/o the Benjamin Foundation (416-780-0324).

RAIGLA, Enn " Andy" (April 17th, 1920-July 2nd, 2006)
Passed away peacefully on July 2nd, 2006. He was 86. Beloved husband of Linda, father of Mart (Wynn), step-father of Rein VORNE (Reni and grandkids Alex and Robbie.) Born in Estonia, Enn was a rising soccer star until World War 2 turned his life upside down. After surviving Siberia and displaced persons camps, he emigrated to Canada after the war and settled in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. He worked in the gold mines of this booming town for several years before moving his family to Toronto in 1960. He worked as a statistician for a survey company for 8 years and then for the Province of Ontario for 17 years, before retiring in 1985 at the age of 65. Enn enjoyed all sports, was a die-hard Blue Jay fan, and became an avid golfer at the age of 50. He loved to tell jokes and was a prankster at heart. He will be dearly missed by all those who knew him. Thank you to the nurses and caregivers at Leisureworld Etobicoke for their care and compassion. Donations to the Alzheimer Society of Canada would be appreciated. A private memorial for the family will take place.

RAIKES, Alan
In memory of a loving husband, father and grandfather who passed away 10 years ago, October 12, 1996.
This month comes with deep regret
It brings back a day we cannot forget,
You left us suddenly with a short goodbye
But memories of you will never die.
May the winds of love blow softly
And whisper so you will hear,
That we will always love and miss you
And wish that you were here.
Forever remembered and missed by wife Barbara, son Russell (Cindy), daughters Debra KEECH, Diane STROME (Gordon) and grandchildren.

Formerly of Etobicoke, Ontario at Guelph General Hospital on May 15, 2006 after a long and healthy life at age 91. Dearly beloved husband of Marjorie HORVATH (née Marjorie MacVEY) and devoted father of Joan HORVATH and Peter, son David HORVATH and Nancy of Guelph and the late Scott HORVATH [1946-1972]. Lovingly remembered by George MacVEY and Elaine, Eleanor RAINE, and Betty MacVEY of Vancouver. Dear Uncle of many nieces and nephews and extended family in British Columbia. Eugene graduated in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan (1941) where he was active in fencing, wrestling and the debating team. He served overseas four and a half years with the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. After the war, in his consulting engineering practice, he designed heating and air conditioning systems, on such projects as the Queen Elizabeth building, the Eglinton reservoir, the Toronto Transit Commission Bloor-Danforth subway and a variety of public school buildings and Pumping Stations. An active member of the Association of Professional Engineers for twenty years, Eugene was awarded an Officer of the Order of Honour. He served on the Executive of the Kingsway Chapter for ten years and initiated a Careers Information program involving both practicing engineers and guidance counsellors. An engineer, thinker and energetic man Gene always knew what had to be done and simply kept at it, whether during the war, managing his engineering practice, inspiring young engineers, or being involved in local and national politics, or skipping a curling team. He was a life time member at the Boulevard Club. He was passionate about curling and golf, his stamp and coin collection, his garden and most of all his home and family. An inspiration to his children and wife of 60 years, Gene had strength of character, enthusiasm, optimism, a delightful sense of humour and he loved life. Dear Dad, you will remain in our hearts forever. A memorial service will be announced later.

On his first tour in Cyprus (1964) he had the very good fortune to be attached to a British Army Regiment - The Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers.

Following his retirement from the army in Toronto in 1977, Bill bought a Restaurant/Pub which he named 'Raines'(Mother's maiden name) and 'Major's'(after his rank). After cremation there will be a small graveside service in Cataraqui Cemetery in Kingston at his parents' grave site. Bonnie and family will be at home on Friday-afternoon June 9 between 2 and 5. Please - no flowers or donations. Bill's wish is please charge your glass with your favourite libation and say 'Slainte'… Nemo Me Impune Lacessit
