ROTTER, Julek " Julian"
(February 12, 1912-July 8, 2008)
Born in Lvov, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Julian ROTTER lived through two world wars. His formal education came to an end early, as he left school at about 12 years of age to help support his impoverished family. He became involved in radical politics as a young teenager, and throughout his life remained committed to the struggle for social justice. When the second world war broke out in September 1939, Julian enlisted in the Polish Cavalry in their brief, ill-fated struggle against Hitler. Later that year, while working to organize a factory union, he met and fell in love with the late Natalie Strawczynski ROTTER, who had fled Nazi-occupied Poland in autumn 1939. They married in Lvov on December 10, 1940, the day that the Soviets declared war on Hitler. Julian then joined up with the Red Army to fight the Nazis. At the end of World War 2, Julian returned to Lvov, but was devastated to find that he was the only survivor in his entire immediate and extended family. He immigrated to Montreal with his wife Natalie, and baby Frederika, to join Natalie's late brothers (Zygmunt and Oscar STRAWCZYNSKI) and their families. His younger daughter Pearl ("Pep") was born in Montreal. Julian will be remembered as a hard-working, devoted, loving husband, father, uncle and friend who fought intensely for all he believed in, worked tirelessly to provide for his family, and refused to accept defeat whenever he saw any injustice. He was shattered by the death of his beloved wife of sixty years in 2001. He is survived by their two daughters; Frederika and her husband, Philip BERGER; and Pearl and her husband, Evan SPLETT; three adoring grandchildren, Pia and Joey BERGER and Esther SPLETT; and numerous loving nieces, nephews, great nieces and great-nephews. The funeral service will be held at Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Avenue West (3 lights west of Dufferin), on Thursday July 10, 2008 at 10: 00 a.m. Shiva at 106 Riverdale Avenue. Memorial donations may be made to the Julian Rotter fund for Jewish Immigrant Aid Service c/o The Benjamin Foundation, 3429 Bathurst Street, Toronto, M6A 2C3, 416-780-0324, www.benjamins.ca

CLACK- STREEF, Brenda Corrine " Cory"
Loving daughter, wife, mother, extraordinary friend, business owner, mentor. Born September 23, 1961, in Toronto. Died November 8, 2007, in Mississauga, Ontario, of breast cancer, aged 46.
By Linda ANDREJICKA, Page L8
Cory made people smile and feel welcome. She was a natural charmer who was truly loved and respected by so many.
Born Brenda Corrine CLACK, she took full advantage of being the youngest child, benefiting from two older siblings clearing the parental path. Her Mississauga home was considered the community centre. Although it was a friendly neighbourhood, the cul-de-sac full of cars and kids, you could often hear the impatient cry of "Cory Clack, turn that music down" into the wee hours of the morning.
Cory's passion for creating nutritious family meals came at an early age with making tasty grilled-cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. She became president of Faye Clack Communications, a respected food communications company. Although her mom, Faye, was in charge, Cory worked her way up, which gave her a true appreciation of the food industry, working with clients and the difficulties of running a small business. She soon won the respect of employees, whom she led into new and exciting opportunities.
When Cory met her husband and soulmate, Albert, and had the family she always wanted, she became truly content and settled. She loved being a mom to Sadie, Fallon and Jillian; she was a natural at organizing everything family-related. Memorable get-togethers were her specialty. Her recipe was simple - a celebratory glass of wine or two, delicious food and lots of love, family and Friends. Her flank steak and Caesar salad were well-known dishes.
Cory's philanthropic nature was emerging. She initiated numerous fundraising efforts to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. Although never classified as the athletic type, she participated in the gruelling two-day, 60-kilometre Weekend to End Breast Cancer walk - not once, but twice, in 2006 and 2007. Even though, unknown to her, the cancer had returned, ravaging her back, kidney and chest bone, she finished last year's walk.
A week later, the diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer was confirmed. In her honour, Cory's family organized a memorial fund to provide financial assistance for up-and-coming chefs attending George Brown College.
The months of Cory's all-too-short remission were spent as they always were - celebrating with a girls-only weekend, an 18-friend March break vacation in Florida, a summer full of cottage and camping weekends, a romantic Mexico getaway for two, a family reunion, getting on with business, loving, laughing and dreaming of a long and healthy life.
Linda ANDREJICKA is Cory's lifelong friend.

Boy dies of injuries in all-terrain vehicle crash
By Joe BELANGER, Thurs., July 10, 2008
A 13-year-old boy has died in a London hospital from injuries in an all-terrain vehicle crash last week.
Perth County Ontario Provincial Police said Trent STREICHER, of North Perth, died Tuesday from injuries suffered in the June 30 crash that also sent his 11-year-old sister to hospital.
Police said the boy was operating the all-terrain vehicle on Perth Line 71 and Perth Road 140 was headed home to get gas for a lawn mower.
The boy lost control and both children were thrown off the all-terrain vehicle as it rolled into a field. A passing motorist called police and ambulance.
Both were taken to Listowel Memorial Hospital, but the boy was transferred to London Health Sciences Centre where he died late Tuesday.
Police say speed and inexperience are factors in the crash.
There have been three all-terrain vehicle-related deaths and several people seriously injuries over the last month in Southern Ontario, including a 15-year-old Jarvis youth and a 52-year-old Dunnville man.
The spate of of crashes has prompted police across the district to issue warnings about safe operation of all-terrain vehicles, especially to parents about allowing children to operate the machines that can be driven at speeds similar to a car.

Pictures of dead child help parents
By Kristine OWRAM, The Canadian Press, Mon., July 7, 2008
Toronto -- Gina STRIMAS- MacKEY was still celebrating the birth of her seventh child, Ezra, when she woke up one morning in May to find him lying motionless in his crib, not breathing.
One of her daughters performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on him until the paramedics arrived, but it was too late. Ezra was dead after only six weeks of life.
As the family made funeral preparations, a friend suggested that they might want to do something to memorialize their son. When she mentioned Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, a charitable organization that specializes in photographing dead and dying infants, STRIMAS- MacKEY knew she had found the perfect way to remember Ezra.
STRIMAS- MacKEY contacted Heather RIVLIN, a Toronto photographer who is with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep and she agreed to take photos at Ezra's funeral.
The photographs from that day tell a story of grief, but also of a close-knit family supporting each other in a difficult time.
In one photo, STRIMAS- MacKEY holds Ezra, the tears visible on her face as her husband comforts her.
"I thought (these photos) would be a tangible tool to help the younger children understand and comprehend what had happened. What I've come to realize is it's a tool to help me, because it doesn't let you forget," said STRIMAS- MacKEY.
"I don't want to forget how we felt at that moment, because if we do that it will minimize how much Ezra means to us," she added, her voice breaking with emotion.
STRIMAS- MacKEY isn't alone in her desire to remember a very difficult part of her life, said Sandy Puc, a Colorado-based photographer and co-founder of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.
Puc already specialized in photographing terminally ill babies when she was asked by a client if she could wait until her baby was taken off life support to photograph him "without all the tubes and the wires."
Puc said she was "bowled over" by the request, and found it very difficult, but also very fulfilling.
The end result of that photo session inspired Puc and the mother, Cheryl Haggard, to create Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.
Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep was founded in 2005 and already has more than 5,000 photographers volunteering in 20 different countries.
