RITCH o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-06-18 published
HORHOTA, Marjan H.
Passed away on June 17, 2007 in Toronto in his 84th year after a brief struggle with cancer. Beloved husband of Adela for 54 years, father of Irene RITCH (Bocabec, New Brunswick), George and daughter-in-law Margot (Oakville) and loving dido/ grandfather of Natalie. Born in Bortkiv, Ukraine, Marjan immigrated to Canada in 1949. After attending Ryerson University, he earned a Bachelor of Library Science degree from the University of Ottawa (1964) and joined the Faculty of the University of Guelph as a Librarian at the McLaughlin Library (1964-1988). But his real passion was working as a tireless advocate of Ukrainian arts and political independence through a lifetime contribution to the Ukrainian community as a leading editor and journalist. Known throughout the International Ukrainian community by his pen name (Marjan Dalney), he co-founded the Organization of Democratic Ukrainian Youth (ODUM) and served as editor of its Young Ukraine magazine. His 20-year (1977-97) tenure as Editor of the Novi Dni (New Days) monthly magazine earned Marjan HORHOTA international readership. Marjan's half century of Ukrainian journalism was recognized this year when the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (Kiev, Ukraine) with the Bahriany Foundation published a 550-page book dedicated to Marjan's writing, selecting from among his over 500 articles, commentaries and speeches and 2,000 pieces of correspondence spanning 1953 to 1996. The letters included those with leading Ukrainian writers, poets, political dissidents, academics and historians. A quiet and unassuming man by nature, Marjan inspired many through his thoughtful writing and dedication to the right of free speech and democratic principles. Friends are invited to the visitations at Cardinal Funeral Home, 366 Bathurst Street, on Tuesday, 2-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. (Panachida 7: 30). Funeral services will be held at St. Volodymyr Cathedral (402 Bathurst St.), on Wednesday at 10: 30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in Marjan's memory to the Bahriany Foundation, 811 South Roosevelt Ave., Arlington, Illinois, U.S.A. 60005, and the Ivan Franko Home (905) 820-0573 would be appreciated. Condolences may be emailed at www.cardinalfuneralhomes.com. The family sincerely thanks Mount Sinai Hospital's Doctor NIROUMAND, her Team D medical staff and nurses Olga and Neila for their compassionate care.

Celebration of Life Service
On Saturday afternoon, May 26 a Celebration of Life service was held for John Oliver RITCHIE in the Annesley United Church, Markdale when a large crowd of Friends and relatives attended.
Prior to the service Bill McMEEKIN provided bagpipe music as the people entered the church. He concluded with playing the hymn "O God of Bethel", a family favourite and the hymn which was played as the Ritchie forefathers boarded the ship to come to Canada.
The eulogy was given by his sister, Rosemary RITCHIE, who related about growing up on the Old Durham Road, Artemesia Township the son and daughter of John and Sadie (Sarah OLIVER) RITCHIE and attending the Old Durham Road School. She recalled many experiences of their young and teenage years and then of John Oliver going off to train for a nurse. She recalled how he graduated from the Owen Sound General and Marine Hospital then obtained his B.A. from Waterloo University before heading west in 1974.
He chose to live in Delta, British Columbia where his great-uncle and former British Columbia premier, John OLIVER, had settled. There he enjoyed nature, creating a wonderful garden and walking his dogs.
He completed a M.A. at Simon Fraser University and became a teacher at the Faculty of Health Sciences at Douglas College where he taught for 30 years. He was much loved and admired by colleagues and students alike.
He enjoyed music and sang with the Vancouver Bach Choir for several years in performances of Handel's Messiah, the Aida performance at British Columbia Place and subsequent travels to perform in Japan.
Rev. Mark WAUGH of Annesley United read scripture and gave the meditation.
George ACHESON and Marilyn GUY sang several solos and duets during the service.
Les MacKINNON, a cousin, recalled memories of John Oliver as did Katie HARRISON, a classmate.
Others taking part and recalling memories were Joe TAILOR/TAYLOR, Lynn MOREWOOD, Katherine HALL, and Mary HALL.
All classmates were presented with roses upon entering the church and at a specific time during the service went forward and placed them on the table at front of the church.
Following the service a time of fellowship was enjoyed in the church's Fellowship Hall.
John Oliver RITCHIE's ashes were interred in the family plot in Evergreen Cemetery, South Line, former Artemesia Township.

RITCHIE, John Weir
It is with sadness, yet recognition of a life well-lived, that the family announces that John Weir RITCHIE departed from us on July 6, 2007 at Rockwood Terrace in Durham.
Beloved son of Edgar and Bessie RITCHIE, John was born in 1918 at his parent's Elbow, Saskatchewan farm where he lived until the age of four. When his father died at 24, John moved with his mother to Durham, Ontario and joined his uncle Thomas WEIR's family.
Married to Sarah (Sadie) OLIVER in 1944, they lived on their Old Durham Road farm near Priceville to raise two children, John Oliver and Rosemary. In addition to farming, John worked at Hewgill's sawmill in Pricevilie and for both Farquhar and John MacKINNON over the years, and drove a high school bus route. Retirement took John and Sadie to their retirement home, "Cape Horn" on the outskirts of Markdale.
Always well-respected by his community, John was noted for his humility and kindness as he exemplified rural life, enjoying all that it offered. He was an enthusiastic member of Annesley United Church, the Markdale Curling Club and a ten-year volunteer at Rockwood Terrace. Predeceased by his wife, Sadie in March 1997, and his son, John Oliver in February 2007, John is survived by his daughter, Rosemary RITCHIE (Wayne PILKINGTON) of Vancouver and sisters-at-heart, Mary (Ken) HALL of Scarborough and Margaret (Robert) MONTGOMERY of St. Catharines.
Funeral service of remembrance and thanksgiving was held at Annesley United Church, Markdale, on July 13 with Rev. Don PLETSCH presiding. Music during the service consisted of the congregation singing the family favourite "O God of Bethel" and "Faith of Our Fathers". Also providing music were the Gospel Couriers and Ian LEITH playing his fiddle. Interment was at Evergreen Cemetery, South Line, Artemesia.
Memorial contributions towards the endowment fund for John's son can be made to: John Oliver Ritchie Scholarship Fund, c/o Douglas College Health Sciences Dept. Batchelor Science of Nursing Faculty, Box 2503, New Westminster, British Columbia V3L 5B2.

RITZ, Harold (February 16, 1921-August 15, 2006)
In loving memory of a dear husband and father. February 16, 1921-August Did you ever know that you're my hero
You're everything I would like to be
I can fly higher that an eagle
You were the wind beneath my wings.
- Sadly missed, always remembered, forever loved, Tania, Susan, Patricia and Robin.
