DOLISZNY, Mary (née WITYK)
It is with great sorrow that we announce that Mary DOLISZNY (nee WITYK) left peacefully on Friday, May 25, 2007 after a life well lived. Born August 7, 1927 in Korchmyn, Ukraine, Mary, her mother, Matrona and her older brother, John, emigrated to Kingston, Ontario to join their father/husband, Hryhorij in 1937. After completing elementary and secondary schooling in Kingston, Mary completed the R.N. nursing program at the Ontario Hospital in Long Branch, Ontario. She worked as a nurse at the Ontario Hospital in Kingston, the Halifax General Hospital and the St. Catharines General Hospital. Mary met the love of her life, Benjamin Walter DOLISZNY, in June, 1946, while attending a Ukrainian Language Course in Winnipeg. They married September 16, 1950. In addition to being a loving and devoted wife to Ben, she was a caring and loving mama to Bonnie, Kathie (Dr. Stephen ARCHER) and Greg (Julie) and loving baba to Malanka, Eta, Ben, Matthew, Thomas, Anya and Luke. She was a considerate and generous sister/sister-in-law to John (Lucia), Peter (Judy) and Patricia KUCHAR. She was a beloved tsiotsia/teta to eight nieces and nephews. Mary was predeceased by her parents and brother, John. Mary was actively involved in the Ukrainian Catholic Church. A long-time member of Sts. Cyril and Methodius Church in St. Catharines, she held numerous executive positions in the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League of Canada at the local and national levels. She was National President of the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League of Canada between 1980 and 1983. She was also a member of the World Federation of Ukrainian Women's Organizations and was Treasurer General of the World Union of Catholic Women's Organizations for ten years. Her involvement as a volunteer in these organizations reflected her love of her homeland and Church and took her to conferences/meetings around the world including Australia, Mexico, Europe and Africa. She was awarded the Pro Ecclesia it Pontifice medal by Pope John Paul II, as well as the Shevchenko Medal. She was fiercely proud of her Ukrainian heritage and, to this end, opened a shop, "Ukrainian Treasures" on Vine Street, in St. Catharines in 1980. She supplied "all things Ukrainian" to the Niagara Region and Western New York. We will miss our baba, but are comforted to know that she has gone to a place where she will find peace. Vichnaya Pam'iat. Mary's family will receive Friends at the George Darte Funeral Home, 585 Carlton Street, on Sunday and Monday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Liturgy will be held at Sts. Cyril and Methodius Church on Tuesday, May 29, 2007 at 10 a.m. Interment to follow at Victoria Lawn Cemetery. Panachyda will be recited at the funeral home Monday evening at 7: 30 p.m. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League Scholarship Fund or Sts. Cyril and Methodius Church Building Fund.

ARCHER, Margaret Joyce (née WEBBER)
Died Thursday June 14 2007 at North York General Hospital from complications due to a major stroke. Her last days and hours were spent in the company of family and lifetime Friends. She passed from this life peacefully in a gentle sleep. Married for nearly 52 years, she loved and was deeply loved by her husband Bruce and their children Morgan, Jennifer and Jill, and by five wonderful grandchildren Jennifer's Alice and Hugh; and Jill's Fiona, Jens and Eleanor. They renewed her zest and joy in life as they grew and thrived. She is also survived by nephews and nieces from her predeceased siblings Jack, Murray and Barbara. Peggy, as she was known, filled her 69 years of life with friendliness, care, compassion and kindness. She was devoted to family and Friends and gave serious attention to the welfare of others. Her smile and good humour brightened our lives. Her physical loss leaves a gap that cannot be measured. She will remain in our hearts and memories for as long as those she shared her gentle life with live. A memorial service will be held at the Jerrett Funeral Home, 660 Kennedy Rd. (between St. Clair and Eglinton Aves E.) on Monday at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
Good bye to the best of wives, moms and grandmas.
