IGGERS 

IGGERS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-01-16 published
ORTVED, Mary Charteris (née CARTER)
Peacefully at her home on January 14th, 2008 in her 91st year, following an incredibly full life. Beloved wife of the late William Evans ORTVED, M.D. (1996) and sister to Joan Carruthers ROBERTS (Goodridge d.) and the late John Charteris Haig CARTER (Helen d.). As the Leo that she was, she stood like a lioness for her six children, Susan ARMITAGE (Murray d.,) Niels (Stephanie,) Peter (Maureen), Jody (Cathy), Janet IGGERS (Dan), Anne DATTELS (Peter) and loved them all dearly. She enjoyed watching the eleven grandchildren grow up - Kirsten COOKE (Ian,) Kevin ARMITAGE (Linda GALASSO); Allie SWEENEY (Patrick), Chat and John ORTVED; Mira and Matthew ORTVED; Kyla and Dayne ORTVED; Kelly and Adam IGGERS. She was proud to be a great-grandmother of Sophie, Charlie and Jay. Also fondly remembered by Jim SUTTON and Jamie, Liam and Isabelle CAVEN. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to Doctor Wendy BROWN; and her special caregivers Norma, Maria, Tess, Magda and Lani, one of whom was always at her side for the past 21 months.
After graduating from Havergal College, Mary went on to University College, University of Toronto where she met her husband Bill ORTVED. Her many years of volunteering for the Women's Committee of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra culminated in her term as President. She served on both the Board of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Roy Thomson Hall. She was an enthusiastic member of the Toronto Herb Society, and enjoyed her many weekly bridge games. She led a very active life right up into her late eighties playing tennis twice weekly, skiing at Osler Bluff Ski Club, playing golf at Rosedale Golf Club, skippering her Albacore and Flying Scot, and enjoying the religious morning plunge into Georgian Bay off the rocks of Land's End. Mary's spirit will always rest at her beloved island, Wawonaissa, at Pointe au Baril where she spent every summer of her life. Since 1954 when they bought property at Mansfield, her weekend ritual was roosting at Whippoorwill Hill and she cherished the hills and the many Friends that surrounded her there.
There will be a celebration of her life on Monday January 21st at Eglinton St. George's United Church, corner of Lytton and Duplex Ave. Toronto at 2 o'clock. Reception following at Rosedale Golf Club, 1901 Mt. Pleasant Road. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.
