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.

ROBERTSON, Wanza Kate (née BUCKLEY)
On Saturday, January 19, 2008, of cancer, surrounded by family at her home in Mississauga, Ontario. Born in St. Catharines, Ontario, on July 12, 1928, Wanza was the first child of the late Eric and Edna (née HONSBERGER) BUCKLEY (Windsor, Ontario) and a loving older sister to the late Keith BUCKLEY (2000.) She was predeceased by her mother- and father-in-law Agnes (née BAILLIE) and Peter ROBERTSON (Bishopbriggs and Glasgow, Scotland and Windsor, Ontario,) her husband of 41 years, Ronald ROBERTSON, Q.C., in 1992, and by their daughter, Heather Agnes, in 1980. Wanza was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and a great friend to many. She will be greatly missed by her three surviving children and their spouses, Peter ROBERTSON (Antonietta SEUCHARAN) Holly ROBERTSON (Gaetano AMATO), and Kate ROBERTSON (Michael HOPTON). She will also be deeply missed by her eight grandchildren: Kate, Eric, and Natalie AMATO; Lee and Cole ROBERTSON; and Matthew, Sarah and Aimee HOPTON. She was a cherished sister-in- law to childhood friend Margaret SPETTIGUE (née ROBERTSON) (Owen SPETTIGUE) of Leamington, Ontario, and sister-in-law Judy BUCKLEY (née LAWRASON) of St Catharines and Toronto, and a very special aunt to their respective children: Margaret-Ann, Charles, James, Katherine and Christine SPETTIGUE; and Erica and Andrew BUCKLEY. Dedicated to the wellbeing of others, especially family, she was also very active in the community. As a volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society for many years, she drove cancer patients to appointments and treatments. She also delivered meals on behalf of Meals on Wheels. Even the local wildlife benefited from her thoughtfulness: Wanza nurtured milkweed and other native plants in her backyard gardens long before it became trendy to do so. Wanza was a private person, but her kindness and wry sense of humour drew many to her. She was intensely interested in politics and enjoyed well-informed and lively political discussions. With her keen intellect, she was an avid reader and wordsmith, but nobody could say more by simply arching an eyebrow. Her Friends and family will miss her empathy, dry wit, and wise counsel. Wanza endured her illness and her difficult final weeks and days with her characteristic grace and dignity and with a stoicism and sense of humour that was typical of her approach to life's troubles. A funeral service will be held at St. Andrew's Memorial Presbyterian Church, 24 Stavebank Rd. North, (Port Credit) Mississauga (905-278- 8907), at 10: 30 a.m. on Friday, January 25, 2008. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Mental Health Association, The Canadian Cancer Society or Plan Canada (formerly Foster Parents Plan) would be appreciated.
