WEIDER, Helena (1906-2008)
Helena died peacefully on January 22, 2008, in her 102nd year at Bay Haven Senior Care Community in Collingwood. This remarkable woman was married to Jozo WEIDER, with whom she founded the Blue Mountain Resort in 1941, which they developed into Ontario's leading ski resort, along with Blue Mountain Pottery. Blue Mountain Pottery also became a major business until it was sold by the WEIDERs in 1965. Helena married Jozo in 1936, after ski vacations at his mountain chalet in Slovakia. The family immigrated to Canada in 1939 and arrived at Blue Mountain in 1941 after stints of homesteading in the Peace River district in British Columbia and ski instructing in Quebec. After Jozo's tragic death in 1971, Helena applied her great energy and ability to traveling and writing and assisting her considerable extended family. She learned to speak and write in Spanish during a long sojourn on the south coast of Spain, where she renovated homes and wrote two books, Mountain Ballad, a narrative poem and Tales from Andalucia, a collection of short stories. On her return to Canada she continued to write and completed a memoir for her family near the end of her life. Helena was crushed when she lost her twin daughters Katherine CANNING and Anna MARIK in 2007, but she retained her indomitable spirit to the end. She is survived by her children George and Helen; their spouses Barbara WEIDER and Don McGILLIVRAY sons-in law Gordon CANNING and Josef MARIK; grandchildren Andrea CANNING, Tessa and Tony MARIK, Alec, James and Gillian McGILLIVRAY, Katherine and Michael WEIDER. She also leaves seven great-grandchildren. The family has made private funeral arrangements, but Friends of the family are welcome to attend a memorial gathering planned for later this year. This is to be held at the Village Conference Centre at Blue Mountain on Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. In place of flowers please consider a donation to the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital Foundation, (705) 444-8645.

MANCINELLI, Vincent
Husband, father, professor, mentor, friend, world traveller. Born March 17, 1939, in Crecchio, Italy. Died October 7, 2007, in Barrie, Ontario, of cancer, aged 68.
By Luciana MARINI- WURDEMANN, Page L6
If there were one word to describe Vincent, it would be passion. He liberally infused his life with passion for family, Friends, teaching and world travels.
Vincent instilled his philosophy of passion for one's work, integrity and fun into all of his endeavours, inspiring many to follow his example.
For more than 30 years, he inspired students with his passionate discussions on Italian literature and culture as an assistant professor in the modern languages department at Algoma University College in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario He often told Friends and students that the best compliment he had ever received was that he was a teacher, not a professor.
Vincent advised students and colleagues that "without passion there is no teacher," that sharing one's knowledge is as important as the method of delivery and that one should "keep it fun."
He was not fond of the word lecture, preferring to use the word conversation. He aimed to transport students to the time and place of the work and author being discussed.
In one conversation, he compared Dante's devotion for Beatrice - the unattainable love of his life - with his own devotion for his wife, Franca, who was always at his side.
Vincent often spoke of his wife and children, Anita, Michael and Natalie, as his inspiration for life and happiness. The arrival of his grandchildren prompted his retirement and relocation to Barrie, where he could be a full-time nonno.
To many Friends, Vincent was better known as the world traveller and group leader who inspired his fellow travellers with tales about the countries they were exploring. Many memorable excursions to Italy were peppered with Vincent's colourful commentary.
His passion for all things Italian became even more pronounced when he accepted the appointment of honorary vice-consul of Italy. He saw this as the perfect opportunity not only to improve consular services to the Italian community in Sault Ste. Marie but to help disseminate the Italian culture and language to the "new Italians" - the younger generations of Italian-Canadians.
Although Vincent faced bureaucratic challenges, he was determined to make a difference. Resigning his post was the most difficult decision of his professional life, especially since he was aware that the Italian community would have to travel out of town for consular services.
Vincent will be remembered as a man of integrity who was passionate about life, family and all things Italian. His passion will always be alive in our hearts.
Luciana MARINI- WURDEMANN is a former student, colleague and friend of Vincent's.

MORRISEAU, Christopher Thomas
Musician, poet, artist. Born January 2, 1979, in Thunder Bay. Died January 23 in Kingston's Joyceville Institution of accidental poisoning, aged 29.
By Andre MORRISEAU, Page L6
Christopher was a free-spirited child who from a young age had a hard time with authority. It wasn't that he was a bad child - he just ran on a different clock, with his own timetable and set of rules that often landed him on the wrong side of right.
Being alone was one of Christopher's greatest fears. As an only child raised by his mother on the Fort William First Nation outside Thunder Bay, he craved Friendship and a crowd. Always the funny one in a group, he used his social skills to fight his loneliness and his blue-eyed good looks to break more than his share of young hearts.
Christopher was surrounded by the many challenges that face young people growing up on reserves in this country. From the age of 11 he was in and out of institutions.
He exercised his creative abilities by gravitating toward music, becoming a talented guitar player. His poetry could easily disarm, filling the pages of many youthful journals with his dreams and his pain.
He never knew his birth father, Tom MARKHAM, until they reunited when Christopher was in his mid-20s.
His Grandma Pat strove to bring order to his chaotic life with weekly jaunts to yard sales and lots of love. His mother, Carol, was more like a sister and best friend. His Uncle Andre, who lived in the city, always spoiled him, promising that when Chris turned 18 he could move to Toronto and live with him.
In late May, 2007, Christopher came to live with his uncle again after being released on parole on a charge of aggravated assault. Registered in the Indigenous Culture and Media Innovations program at Toronto's Native Canadian Centre, he began to thrive like never before. Whether writing, acting or behind the camera, Christopher was seeing life through the eyes of creative challenge and accomplishment.
It was here that he met Kendra, a fellow classmate. For six months they were inseparable. Christopher wanted to make each moment with her an occasion to remember.
In early December, Christopher was re-incarcerated for failing a urine test. Sadly, the next month he passed away after drinking homemade alcohol, only six weeks before he would have been released with a clean slate.
Christopher leaves behind his daughter Asha, sons Raiden and Christopher Junior. In his short life he shared a heart filled with love, a mind filled with dreams and a passion that will live forever. The boy nicknamed Blue has passed through the clouds to a gentler horizon where love is secure and Friends abound.
Andre MORRISEAU is Christopher's uncle.
