WITHERS, Eileen Anne (née TRAYNOR)
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Eileen WITHERS, after a short and courageous battle with lung cancer. On Friday, June 13th, she died peacefully with her husband and two children by her side in hospital in Halifax, age 61. A woman whose journey through life blended several families in many locations, including homes in Scotland, England, Gatineau in Quebec, Ottawa, Halifax, Toronto and finally retirement in Windsor, Nova Scotia. Daughter of proud parents Harry TRAYNOR and Katherine (née GILL) of Halifax. Beloved wife and best friend of Thomas (Ted) WITHERS. Cherished mother of Sarah (Keith BENNETT, Toronto) and Adam MAHONEY (Kendra HURSHMAN, Windsor.) Dear stepmother of Rob MAHONEY (Tracey SLITER, Ottawa), Paul WITHERS (Judy MYRDEN, Halifax) and Carolyn (Andy HEARD, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia). Precious sister of Ian (Ottawa) and Gordon (Halifax), she was predeceased by her sister Christine (Bryan UNSWORTH, York). Eileen will be sadly missed by her extended family and Friends in the United Kingdom, the U.S. and throughout Canada. Born in Greenock, Scotland, her family moved to England before she started school. An avid sportswoman and student, tennis and grass-hockey were balanced by studying mathematics and chemistry, eventually completing an honours degree in Economics at the University of London. In 1968, shortly after arriving in Canada, she realized that her French skills, learned in England, were not sufficient so she enrolled in a French ski school. That way, she could learn to ski and speak French at the same time. Her strong work ethic and commitment to efficiency helped propel her into senior policy roles in several federal government departments, and trade negotiator for International Trade Commission. Eileen was truly a remarkable and multifaceted woman whose interests included her pets, wine making and antiques. Always fond of puzzles and games, the complexity of duplicate bridge enchanted her. She was a Life Master, certified as both a director and teacher. She also judged competitive debating teams. A collector by nature she attended estate auctions most weekends. Travel often centred around a theme, first bridge tournaments, then 'collecting' state capital domes in the United States, and finally, viewing paintings by Vermeer in museums around the world. Her love of art was shared with Ted. In recent years, her generosity led her to volunteer with seniors at the Windsor Elms, especially in the Palliative Care Unit. An active member of her church, she was a Eucharistic Minister. Funeral mass and celebration of life were held in Windsor, Nova Scotia In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, or your local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Animal Shelter. Private messages of condolence can be made in the 'Guest Book' at: www.familycare.ca She met each challenge in her path with grace and wisdom and it was the gift of herself that she gave to others.

HURWICH o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-02-16 published
HURWICH, Nathan O.
For seventy-three years husband to his beloved late wife Roey, (née APPLEBAUM,) son of the late Benjamin and Rachel HURWICH, friend and mentor to countless others, entrepreneur, philanthropist, tireless volunteer and fund-raiser on behalf of many charitable and community service organizations, passed away in his 99th year on Thursday, February 14, 2008. Survived by his sisters Anne HIMEL (Ben HIMEL and Jack COHEN both deceased) of Toronto and Ada WALTMAN (Harry deceased) of Washington D.C., predeceased by his brothers and sisters-in-law Reuben, Samuel (Becky), Dave (Freda) and Sydney (Dolly), he will be dearly missed by them as well as by all of his and Roey's many nieces and nephews and their offspring to the third generation. The son of parents who emigrated from Russia on the same day and met aboard ship bringing them to Canada, Nat was born in Toronto on August 11, 1909. He was raised and educated there, and as a youth attended after-public-school classes at Associated Hebrew School on Simcoe Street. While still a young man Nat established himself as an acute and successful entrepreneur, owning and operating a highly successful automotive parts outlet until the late sixties when he decided to sell it to allow him more time to do what he really wanted to do. Singularly passionate in his commitment to community and to the State of Israel, Nat made them and their institutions his life's work. And during a lifetime of philanthropy and service to community he received over one hundred honours and awards. In addition to the many Letters of Commendation, Certificates and plaques, so numerous some could not find space on his den's walls, his efforts were also publicly recognized by being chosen the guest of honour at several testimonial dinners as well as paid tribute with the bestowing upon him of an Honorary Degree from Bar-Ilan University in Israel. He will be remembered with gratitude by those his passion touched and his leadership inspired. Among the organizations which benefitted from his dedication and generosity are: The United Way of Greater Toronto, Toronto Jewish Federation, United Israel Appeal, Jewish National Fund of Toronto, Beth Tzedec Congregation, Associated Hebrew Schools of Toronto, Canadian Friends of Bar-Ilan University, Hebrew University, Ben Gurion University, Boys Town, Jerusalem, Theological Seminary of America, as well as State of Israel Bonds, Canadian Zionist Federation, Al Latner Jewish Public Library, Toronto Lodge and Toronto Regional Council of B'nai Brith, United Synagogue of America (Ontario Region), Toronto Association for the Welfare of Soldiers in Israel, Canadian Committee for Soviet Jewry, National Holocaust Remembrance Committee, Mount Sinai Hospital, Baycrest Men's Service Group, Board of Jewish Education, and many others. But Nat's greatest and most enduring legacy are the thousands upon thousands of students who have already graduated from, or presently attending, or M'ezrat H'Shem will in the future be enrolled in the Toronto Jewish Day School System on behalf of which he devoted his unstinting efforts during his entire adult life. And it is through his personal and gracious generosity the Nathan and Roey Hurwich Education Centre, the Finch Avenue branch of Associated Hebrew Schools, exists today as a thriving, vibrant middle-school of a thousand plus Jewish students. A sincere thank you Nat seems totally inadequate, yet for him it was more than enough. Nat will forever remain in our hearts and in memories not only for the special person he was, but also for the image he portrayed during his life - and simply put, that is - to everyone including future generations he will have helped to educate, a paradigm of what impact a single life well- lived can have and accomplish. If Friends and well wishers so desire, tributes in Nat's memory may be made to any of the organizations listed above. Funeral services will be held at Beth Tzedec Synagogue, 1700 Bathurst Street (south of Eglinton), on Sunday, February 17th at 2: 30 p.m. Interment, Beth Tzedec Memorial Park.
