WOLOWIDNYK, Aino Teresio (née HONKENAN)
Farmer, housewife, librarian, ski champion, fantastic mother. Born April 28, 1922, in Beaver Lake, Ontario Died September 20, 2007, in Carrot River, Saskatchewan., of a heart attack, aged By Ray WOLOWIDNYK and Nancy HAMILTON, Page L6
She was a Finn, a proud Finn to the finish. She was also like an aircraft fin that keeps the plane on an even keel.
Aino Teresio HONKENAN attended a Finnish grade school, so she spoke only Finnish until she was 13. Her mother never spoke English. Her father was a gymnast and a boxer.
In her youth, Aino won many ski races in Northern Ontario. She regaled how, after finishing first in a race, the announcer's voice would echo in her mind over and over again: "Aino Teresio Honkenan."
She met her husband, Nick WOLOWIDNYK, in the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto through mutual Friends. Nick grew up in northern Saskatchewan and had settled in Toronto after returning from the war. Aino had moved to Toronto for work. They married in 1947, and he convinced her to move to a spartan farm in northern Saskatchewan in 1949.
She absorbed tremendous culture shock for many years. When she moved to Saskatchewan, there were no paved highways and only dirt roads to farms. Electricity didn't arrive until 1960, and there was no phone service on the farm until 1978. They grew grain crops and raised pigs and cattle.
Aino raised a family of four children - Ray, Al, Bill and Nancy - and never complained about the lack of amenities. During the long, harsh winters, she was a warm, bright light to all of us as we passed the time playing cards, reading, listening to the radio and watching a black-and-white television with two channels: on and off. Her food specialty was Finnish crepes that were in demand throughout her life.
Nick passed away in 2004, leaving her alone in their house. In April last year, we picked her up at her nursing home in Carrot River, Saskatchewan., and brought her for a ride down memory lane - the places she had lived for the past 58 years, the co-op store where she had bought her provisions, the farm. I kept her abreast of the locations much to her joy.
Returning to the nursing home, we sat in the van for a moment. "It's time to go back in," I said.
She paused and stared for a long while, then turned to me and said, "Let's make a run for it." It was her last tour of the town and our farm. We all parted with heavy hearts.
Last summer she fell and broke her hip. In September, I visited her for what turned out to be the last time. She happily taught me a few Finnish words - aiti for mother and kiitos for thank you.
She taught us so much more in life, including self-discipline, self-respect and kindness. Goodbye again dear aiti.
Ray WOLOWIDNYK is Aino's son, and Nancy HAMILTON is her daughter.

DIRKS, Wilhelmina G.E. (VAN STEENBERGEN)
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of the matriarch of our family on April 5, 2008.
Willy or Oma, as she was known to all, was born in Semarang on the island of Java in Indonesia. She was the only child of Dirk Th. W. VAN STEENBERGEN and Wilhelmina LE GEU. Her early years were spent on a sugar plantation managed by her father. At the age of 17 she was sent to The Netherlands to live with an aunt and uncle while she continued her education at secondary and post secondary school. She married the love of her life, Adriaan (Ad) DIRKS, on December 06, 1939. Together they had three daughters, Anke, Elsje and Luke. Their lives were impacted by the dark years of the German occupation during World War 2. Willy spent many kms. on the road, on a bicycle with no tires, trading wedding presents for food for her family. During this time Willy worried about her parents who were imprisoned in a Japanese concentration camp on the island of Java.
Determined to find a better life, Willy, Ad and the girls moved to the island of Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles and then 5 years later to Canada. As a trained bookkeeper, Willy who spoke 6 languages, first worked alongside her husband in his insurance business. However, after the girls were educated and married, Willy started Wellington Way Travel agency with offices in Markham, Ontario and Unionville, Ontario. In 1976 she retired from the business world, moved to North Eastern Ontario, to be close to her family. Unfortunately her health failed and Oma, as she was known then, moved to Northview Nursing Home in Englehart, Ontario.

MOENS, Hendrik Pieter Bernelot
Peter MOENS for short, was born in 1931 in Sukabumi, Indonesia from Dutch parents, and died on April 28, 2008 at the age of 76, in Toronto. Peter spent his first 14 years in Indonesia and then was repatriated to the Netherlands with his family, shortly after the end of the Second World War.
In 1953, he and his new wife Marja emigrated from the Netherlands to New York City, where he worked as a physiotherapist at the Mount Sinai Hospital. In 1956 he moved to Canada, becoming a Canadian citizen in 1961. In Toronto, Peter resumed his education and initially studied forestry, but became interested in research and eventually graduated in 1963 with a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Toronto. Peter became a founding member of the York University Biology Department in 1963, where he researched and taught with passion and dedication until the final days of his life.
During his career at York, Peter became an internationally respected leader in the field of reproductive cell biology. His research and teaching was strongly influenced by his understanding of evolutionary theory and scientific method. Peter was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1978, became a Distinguished Research Professor at York University in 1981, and served as the Scientific Editor of the Canadian genetics journal Genome for the last 25 years. Peter was an avid tennis player, sailor, and triathlete, not only participating in these pursuits but recruiting his children, students and Friends to them as well. He was also a flutist, a maker of jewelry and furniture, and a great lover of natural beauty. He will be remembered for his energy and his enthusiasm for life.
