CANNING, Katherine Jane (née WEIDER)
Died on January 8, 2007 at the age of 64 after a long battle with cancer. Shortly before her passing she was able to enjoy one last snowfall… that was long awaited. On October 25th, 1942 a special and unique person came into the world in Collingwood, Ontario. Kathy grew up to be a vivacious, smart, classy, generous, caring, stubborn and always fashionable woman. Those who knew her will tell you she always stood out, and lit up a room no matter where she was. Kathy will be deeply missed by her loving husband, Gordon CANNING, President of Blue Mountain Resorts Limited and her daughter Andrea, a Correspondent for ABC's Good Morning America, based in New York. Both were by her side until the end. Kathy is survived by her brother George WEIDER, sister Helen McGILLIVRAY and twin sister Anna MARIK. Kathy is also survived by her 100 year old mother, Helen WEIDER. Kathy's father, Jozo WEIDER, who passed away in 1971, moved from Czechoslovakia along with his wife Helen in 1939 and together they founded Blue Mountain Resorts Limited. A whiz at math and sharp as a tack, Kathy achieved a B.Sc. in mathematics at McGill University in Montreal. She went on to work as a computer programmer at the Toronto Telegram. It was in Toronto she met her husband Gord, also a computer programmer at Imperial Oil. Kathy returned to her roots and moved back to Blue Mountain in 1971. As a young girl she worked for her dad, Jozo at the Blue Mountain Pottery and waited tables. As a grown woman she managed Blue Mountain's retail, sold condominiums and always made the resort look beautiful and elegant with her interior design skills. Kathy was also a very talented downhill skier who raced for the Canadian National B Ski Team and won such honors as the Ladies Quebec Senior Alpine Championship in 1964. Kathy went on to race for the University of Grenoble in France in 1965. She could be seen almost daily on the slopes of Blue Mountain until her illness took over. Perhaps Kathy's greatest loves were fashion and Paris. She reveled in designer clothes and that 'great buy' but also sewed many of her own clothes, spending hours in her sewing room. Kathy also devoted a great deal of time to the Blue Mountain Special Olympics program acting as the team manager. Our greatest thanks to the Weiders and CANNINGs and their Friends who offered so much support and care until the end. The many visits, calls and deliveries of food and flowers are very much appreciated. The constant ringing phone and the many knocks at the door were proof of how many people deeply cared for Kathy. Special thanks to Kathy's sister-in-law Beverly McMASTER founder of We Care Home Health, her partner Gary MOORE and mother-in-law Sylvia CANNING who were her angels here on earth and couldn't have taken better care of her. They were always there for her. What everyone should know is that Kathy fought until the end and never once complained about the hand she was dealt. She was a strong person who should serve as an inspiration. Kathy left this world the way she lived with class, beauty and dignity. Kathy's memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 13 at 1: 00 p.m. at The Weider Room in the Blue Mountain Inn Conference Centre at Blue Mountain. In lieu of flowers, the family have requested donations be made to 'Titz'N Glitz' care of Front Line Collingwood Foundation (www.frontlinecollingwood.ca/titznglitz.htm) in Kathy's memory. Friends may leave comments for the family by visiting www.fawcettfuneralhomes.com

MARIK, Anna (née WEIDER) (1942-2007)
It is with great sadness that her family must announce that Anna succumbed to cancer as did her twin sister earlier this year. Anna died peacefully, surrounded by her family, at the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital on October 16. Anna and Katherine were born to Helen and Jozo WEIDER in Collingwood in 1942. Along with her siblings, Anna went to elementary school in the one-room school house at Craigleith and graduated from Collingwood Collegiate. After that she earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of British Columbia. Like her sisters Helen and Katherine she was a top-ranked Canadian junior ski racer and won a Canadian Junior Alpine Championship. She was a talented pianist and taught music in Lillooet, British Columbia and later in Penetanguishine. Anna married Josef MARIK, who had immigrated from Czechoslovakia and with her husband carried on the Czechoslovak legacy of her parents, the founders of the Blue Mountain Resort. Anna and Josef settled in Craigleith in the original family homestead and gradually turned the old farm house into a cozy home. Anna was a unique, outgoing, inquiring spirit, who passionately loved books, animals and the outdoor life. She loved being with her family and many Czech Friends on their island near Parry Sound on Georgian Bay. She was proud of their children. Tessa is a gifted musician, presently studying, performing and teaching piano in Florence, Italy. Tony founded and manages his own company, PHI Media. Anna is survived by her husband and two children, her mother Helen MARIK, 101 years old, her brother George and sister Helen. She is mourned also by her other family members: brothers-in-law, Gordon CANNING and Donald McGILLIVRAY; sister-in-law Barbara MARIK; nephews Alec and James McGILLIVRAY and Michael MARIK nieces Andrea CANNING, Gillian McGILLIVRAY and Katherine MARIK. The family would like to thank her outstanding physician, Doctor Peter SAVAGE, and the extremely caring staff of the Collingwood General and Marine, who made Anna as comfortable as possible in the face of her severe illness. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital Foundation. An informal memorial gathering for Friends and family of Anna will be held at the Village Conference Centre at the Blue Mountain Resort at 11 a.m. Sunday, October 28.

PRIDDLE, Stanley Alexander
Stanley Alexander PRIDDLE of Markdale passed away suddenly in the Grey-Bruce Regional Health Centre in Owen Sound on Sunday evening, September 2, 2007.
He was born on July 10, 1930 in Osprey Township, the only son of Roy PRIDDLE and Jessie (BADGEROW) PRIDDLE. He and his three sisters attended S.S.#2 McIntyre in Osprey Township where his parents farmed. In 1944 Stan's father purchased a home near Dundalk where the family resided for many years.
Stan's working career started after high school when he found employment with Aitchison's Bakery in Dundalk. He worked there for 12 years and learned the baking trade. In 1957 he took over the bakery in Markdale which had been started by Allen SMITH of Dundalk. Two years later he purchased a building across the street and moved the business there.
On October 24, 1959 he married Vivian DAWSON of Dundalk and together they owned and operated Priddle's Bakery. And that bakery was a great success. People still rave about it today. Just last year someone told his daughter Brenda that she used to go to his bakery and had to hide the pastries she bought in different areas of her house so people wouldn't eat them before meal time. Many of the pleasant memories shared by those who attended visitations and the funeral revolved around the bakery.
After Stan sold the bakery in 1972, he worked as a baker for Vern's Donuts in Owen Sound His employer, Vern BARBER, remembered Stan as someone who always had a smile on his face, and his co-worker, Paul DICKSON/DIXON said that Stan taught him how to be a good baker. Stan worked for Vern for 17 years before ill health forced him to retire.
Stan's favourite pastime was to drive a car. He enjoyed travelling to many places, both locally and far away. He has been in every Canadian province and in many parts of the United States, to the Bahamas and to Jamaica. "If you're not going, you're not living!" was his motto.
In retirement years he and Vivian purchased antique cars and attended local parades and car shows. If a stranger wanted a ride in one of his cars, he gave him one. They had many adventures with these cars and met many new people along the way.
Stan had a good sense of humour. He was generous, quiet kind and considerate. He was held in good esteem by all who knew him.
Stan is survived by his daughters, Brenda CATCHER of Owen Sound and Evelyn (Reg) CREGO of Burlington and by his son David (Camilla) PRIDDLE of Manotick, near Ottawa. He also has four grandchildren, Ryan and Allison DEMERCHANT and Cole and Brock PRIDDLE. He is fondly remembered by his friend Joyce ROWE of Hanover who has arranged to have a tree planted in his honour near Griersville. He is also survived by his sisters Rosetta MUIR of Dundalk, Margaret BROWN of Shelburne and Verna MARKOVICH of Shelburne. His mother-in-law Lillian DAWSON of Shelburne and his brother-in-law Tom DAWSON of Dundalk also survive. He was predeceased by his parents Roy and Jessie PRIDDLE, and by his brothers-in-law Bill MUIR, Donald BROWN and Stephen MARKOVICH.
A funeral was held on Friday, September 7 at the Donald and May Funeral Home in Markdale. His daughter Brenda wrote the eulogy and his son David delivered the eulogy along with his own thoughts. His other daughter, Evelyn, prepared a collage of pictures of Stan at various stages in his life. Rev. Mark WAUGH officiated at the service and David FRIES played the organ. A floral arrangement was made for Stan by Bernice TUPLIN of Feversham.
Friends and relatives were present from Markdale, Dundalk, Owen Sound, Chesley, Cambridge, Burlington and Manotick.

MARKOWSKI o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-10-08 published
War hero's scars never held him back
Stanislaw MARKOWSKI was wounded and taken prisoner in the Second World War.
By Kathy RUMLESKI, Free Press Reporter, Mon., October 8, 2007
Sacrifice for the Allies in the infamous Operation Market Garden raid meant decorated paratrooper Stanislaw (Stanley) MARKOWSKI would spend the rest of his life in pain.
MARKOWSKI, 83, died in London's Parkwood Hospital September 25, almost 63 years to the day he was wounded by the Germans and taken prisoner for the rest of the Second World War.
A loving father and grandfather, he always took on renovation projects that made his family's life more comfortable, his daughter recalled.
"He learned the trades and he could fix anything. He built an apartment over (his) house," said Stella NICHOLSON of Oakville. She also recalled her father taking his grand_son to many sporting events.
In wartime 1944, Poland was under the Nazi jackboot but free Poles continued to fight.
MARKOWSKI was a member of the Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade, which joined the Allies in 1944 in the largest airborne operation in history.
Operation Market Garden involved thousands of Allied paratroopers and ground forces, the objective was to take a series of big bridges over the main rivers of German-occupied Holland, allowing the Allies to outflank the heavily fortified Germans.
The botched operation -- thousands were killed and thousands went missing in action -- inspired the 1977 Hollywood movie A Bridge Too Far, starring big-name actors Sean Connery, Michael Caine and Gene Hackman.
In reality, the failed mission meant the Dutch suffered through a "Hungerwinter," in which thousands more died.
NICHOLSON said her father, who came to Canada in 1947, struggled physically and emotionally after he was shot in both legs and captured. He had back pain from jumping out of airplanes with his brigade.
"Anybody living with the aftermath of that stuff, you have all kinds of problems. You dream about seeing your Friends blown up," she said.
MARKOWSKI also had poor circulation in his legs, which eventually led to vein surgery and amputation of one toes.
"He really had a hard go of it," NICHOLSON said.
MARKOWSKI, who worked at several factories, including General Motors, kept the four medals awarded him by the British and Polish governments in a bedroom drawer.
"We're proud of him, big-time," NICHOLSON said.
MARKOWSKI is also survived by his wife, Maria.
