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.

DOLLAK o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-07-04 published
DOLLAK, Josef
Carpenter, chess master, vintner, shepherd. Born December 9, 1934, in Yugoslavia. Died February 28 in Hamilton, Ontario of pneumonia, aged 72.
By Paul DOLLAK, Page L6
When Dad was a little boy, he was certain that you could train a cat to behave like a dog. He taught his cat to pull a small wagon he'd made to a bowl of milk, but could not persuade it to pull the wagon anywhere else; when he tried to do so the cat shot off, dragging the wagon behind until it broke into bits. Dad rebuilt the wagon several times; it was not his way to admit defeat.
Dad's determination helped him through life. His father died when he was 4, just before the Second World War. His older sister died during the war. The end of the war brought more hardship, as it did for most ethnic Germans living in Yugoslavia. The Communists seized all the family's property and detained Dad and his mother (my Oma) in a prison camp.
Dad was allowed to leave the camp to work as a shepherd in the surrounding countryside; he managed to feed himself and smuggle food back for Oma. After three years, they were released. Oma remarried. Her second husband, a carpenter, encouraged Dad to take up the trade; he also encouraged Dad's interest in chess. Dad could have stayed in Yugoslavia and played professionally but he decided to seek a new beginning and so, at age 18, he fled to Austria and eventually to Germany.
Dad met my mother at a Mardi Gras dance in Germany in 1958. They married the following year. In the early sixties, they moved to Canada. In 1966, Dad started his own framing carpentry business and my parents bought a lot on the outskirts of Hamilton. Here Dad built our family home and a workshop. He also planted a small vineyard so he could make wine.
His childhood ordeals marked him. I remember many long silences, times when Dad seemed elsewhere. But he fashioned gifts of generosity and gratitude out of his ordeals, gifts he crafted just as determinedly as he built and rebuilt his cat's little wagon.
When he was 55, he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He survived, but he was physically diminished, suddenly old. Despite this, he happily continued to work as much as he could, giving advice to my brother as they expanded the family business.
After a bout of pneumonia two years ago, he could no longer go anywhere without an oxygen tank. He did not complain; he would pat the tank and call it, "My little friend."
A few weeks before he died, Dad told my mother that just living quietly together in their little house - playing cards, doing crossword puzzles, with good food, enough money to live, and no real worries to speak of - was like heaven. This simple and sincere gratitude became his parting gift.
Paul DOLLAK is Josef's son

ACHESON, Lorne Victor
On August 1, 2007, a funeral service was held to celebrate the 86 year life of Lorne Victor Acheson who passed away suddenly on July 28, 2007.
Lorne was born and raised on a farm in Proton Township and as a boy, he attended S.S.#2 School sometimes known as the "Acheson School" until old enough to work on the farm. In 1942, he, along with his father, Stanley ACHESON, took over a live-stock trucking business that Lorne would continue to operate for 54 years.
On July 7, 1951, Lorne married Roma CHANDLER who had moved to the area as a high school mathematics teacher. Having been raised in the rather nomadic home of a United Church minister, Roma often commented that she never really had a permanent home until she met and married Lorne and adopted Dundalk as her home. Lorne and Roma raised a family of four children: Edward (Ted), Kenneth, Elizabeth (Beth), and Joyce. Roma passed away on November 24, 1979 after a lengthy battle with cancer and Lorne was to continue his life's journey on his own.
He continued on his own but definitely not alone While he kept busy at his trucking business, he also volunteered for years with the Dundalk Agricultural Society, as well as maintaining his involvement with the Dundalk Lions Club up until the time of his death. In his later years, he became a' "special friend" with Doris LANGDON and together they enjoyed two sets of in-laws, cousins and grandchildren. "Aunt" Doris was certainly the tonic that added years to his life.
Reverend Janet ERIKSEN officiated a service that was held in a packed church on a beautiful late summer day. Reverend Janet delivered the eulogy. Gospel readings were done by Lorne's granddaughters Olivia and Holly ACHESON. Olivia remembered a story of Grandpa, when learning that Olivia was going to England to study Archeology, telling her that there were lots of potatoes in Badjeros that needed digging. Jim DOLMER shared memories of "Uncle Lorne" when Jim was growing up and Janine GOSTICK shared her memories of "Grandpa." Ian LEITH played a lovely rendition of "Whispering Hope", Lorne's favourite gospel tune. Pallbearers were grand_sons Ted CLARKE, Allan CLARKE, Robert CLARKE, Jesse ACHESON, Steven GOSTICK, Kevin ACHESON, and Ryan ALDCORN. Flowerbearers were granddaughters Olivia ACHESON, Holly ACHESON, Melissa ACHESON, Heather ACHESON, Janine GOSTICK, Jackie CLARKE, Carlene ALDCORN, Randi ALDCORN, and Emily PHILLIPS. Special music was provided by Mary NICHOLLS, Dundalk United Church Choir, and Ian LEITH.
It is very hard to capsulize 86 years in a few paragraphs. A brief summary was included in the funeral service bulletin, simply titled:
Our Dad
A simple man in the best sense of the description. A humble man. A kind, loving and caring husband and father. A man who wanted only what he needed and needed little. Born and raised on a farm during the Depression, he was blessed with an inherent humility that, over his lifetime, became a more rare trait in people. Obviously we have no recollection of him as a youngster, only stories heard.
He loved the farm life. As hard-scrabble a life as it seems to us, he took pride (the little he had) in a job well done. He loved a new-born calf, a fat steer, a "hot" market, a fast trotter, and the smell of alfalfa curing in the windrow.
He loved his community and never yearned to move on to better opportunities elsewhere but rather to help improve the community he was in. As somewhat of a creature of habit, he loved his special places and routines. Anyone who knew him always knew where he could be found. Early mornings in his later years would find him at the Highway 10 Breakfast Club. On Sunday morning, he could be found in the same pew down to the left of the minister. On Tuesday morning he could be found at the Keady Auction Market in the same seat down to the left of the auctioneer. Just as he had been during his fifty-four year career as a live stock trucker, he continued to be a "morning person" in his retirement. He loved his church as any devout Christian would. Most of all, he loved his family. He loved family gatherings with a Sunday afternoon picnic on the front lawn. He loved his parents, his siblings, his wife, his special friend and her extended family and he loved us. He loved his many Friends that he met along the way. If you are reading this, should know that you were one of them.
