KOROS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-07-12 published
KOROS, John, C.A.
Suddenly and peacefully, following a lengthy illness, at the end of strawberry season, on 07 July 2008, in Ottawa, Ontario, in his 78th year. Born 16 June 1931 in the village of Vyrava, Medzilaborce, Czechoslovakia (now Slovak Republic). Arrived Toronto in 1939, spent the war years in Burlington, Ontario with the ANDOGA family, his cousins. An only child, he later attended Parkdale Collegiate in Toronto, where his lifelong love of football and the Toronto Argonauts was born. Following the death of his father, a furrier, the late George KOROS, in 1952, John began working toward his C.A. with McDonald Currie and Co., and cultivated his love of golf at the Chinguacousy Country Club, eventually earning a handicap of seven. Audits of Newfoundland mining companies were among his favourite assignments from this period. He married Stella Vera ZELINSKY on 04 June 1955. After obtaining his C.A. in 1960, he worked as Chief Financial Officer for a small firm before joining the Office of the Auditor General of Canada in 1965. In 1967, Canada assumed responsibilities as the United Nation's External Auditor; under the direction of Auditor General Maxwell Henderson, John played a lead role over several years on the Canadian audit team, and he absolutely loved the work, the people, and the travel. After moving to Ottawa from Toronto in 1973, his favourite audits were of Canadian International Development Agency and IDRC, and in the late '80s he returned to New York to work with colleagues in the internal audit section of the United Nation Development Program. He retired in 1992, after 27 years of service with the Office of the Auditor General. In retirement John enjoyed the weekly outings, camaraderie, and community service related to the Riverside Kiwanis Club. Over 34 years resident in Kanata, Ontario, John and Stella were active in the Horticultural Society, the Kanata Sailing Club, the Family Enrichment Association, and were long time season ticket holders at the Kanata Theatre. John's other loves included a good joke, the sound of big band orchestras, Stella's cooking, the Leafs, and the cause of all people on the planet knowing themselves as brothers and sisters in the common experience known as 'life'. And he never, ever, ever spared any effort in doing what he thought was best for his family, tirelessly devoting his life to his widowed mother (the late Mary KOROS, died 1982,) his wife, and his sons and their families. John is survived by Stella, his sons Paul and Michael (married to Lucia) and his cherished grandchildren Marie and Nicholas. Cremation. Arrangements c/o Tubman Funeral Homes, Ottawa. A memorial service will be held in Ottawa in early August. Please contact Michael or Paul, or email jkorosmemorial@gmail.com for details and/or condolences. In lieu of flowers, please send a memorial donation to an organization of your choice.

KORTE, Adele
With all of us feeling that a future without Mom (a.k.a. Nana) has arrived at our doorstep far sooner than any of us hoped it would, the daughters and partners of Adele KORTE (Johanne/Rick GREGORY, Nancie/Andy WOLFF, Lu/Sue KING and Karen KORTE and Heidi/Bob McKEE) announce her sudden death March 28, 2008, while visiting family in Toronto. In true KORTE fashion she made her exit while packing the car to go skiing for the weekend! Adele was predeceased by her parents Gustave and Maria VOGEL, and her beloved brothers Ed and Don. It's said that you can tell a lot about a woman by rifling through her purse. As we stare at its contents poured out on the kitchen table, we realize Adele's bulging bag was no exception. A favourite watch of her husband Johan who predeceased her in 2007 after 51 years of marriage, photos of her adored 11 grandchildren (Ryan, Keli, Lian and Derek GREGORY, Makena, Hayden and Lake KORTE- MOORE, Quincy and Jesse KORTE- KING and Kayla and Kieran McKEE,) very old and stale but still used tubes of lipstick that spoke of a woman who was 'a child of the depression' beside blank cheques that were generously dispatched to make sure we never would be, a driver's license with the date of birth showing her to be younger than she actually was, Turkish lira and Saudi riyals, a much used library card, and, at the very bottom, a tiny yellowed newspaper clipping with words memory tells us she took to heart; 'You may have tangible wealth untold, Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold, Richer than I you can never be, I had a mother who read to me' In Adele's memory, grab a coffee, grab a book and grab a child. Not necessarily in that order! Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, on Tuesday, April 1, 2008 from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 2: 30 p.m. Condolences may be sent to korte.nomad@gmail.com.

KORTE, Patricia Claire Frazer
Patricia left us peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Hospital, Guelph on Tuesday, May 20, 2008. She was the beloved wife and partner for 49 years of the late Donald MacCoull KORTE of Cambridge, Ontario and proud mother to Christopher (Marjorie) and Carl (Judy), and grandmother of Paige and Cole. Pat's academic pursuits began at the Emma Willard School in Troy, New York followed by undergraduate studies at Russell Sage College and culminated in a Master's Degree in Political Science from Syracuse University. Pat's thesis, based on U.S. constitutional law, presaged a lifelong interest in American and Canadian politics. She was active in the U.S. civil rights movement and was a supply teacher in inner city schools. Pat and Don immigrated to Canada in 1967 to seek a more peaceable way of life after Don's Korean War service and the unfolding tragedy of the Vietnam War. Pat raised their children and continued to teach, eventually becoming the first Program Coordinator for the Centre for Educational Disabilities at the University of Guelph. Pat and Don were inseparable and began retirement life together by pursuing a shared interest in Canadian history, antiques and travel. An avid letter writer, Pat was passionately engaged in what she perceived to be social injustices and things that struck her as 'not right.' Pat was a proud Canadian who loved her family, her books, a nice glass of wine and any cat who crossed her path. She will be deeply missed. Heartfelt thanks to the compassionate team in the 'Apple Blossom Neighbourhood' at Saint_Joseph's Hospital. Cremation has taken place. In Pat's memory, her family asks that any donations be directed to Saint_Joseph's Hospital Foundation, 100 Westmount Road, Guelph, Ontario, N1H 5H8, (519) 767-3424. A reception recognizing Pat and Don's lives will be held on Saturday, July 19th at 2 p.m. at the Guelph Youth Music Centre, 75 Cardigan Street, Guelph, Ontario, N1H 3Z7.

SASS- KORTSAK, Alice
Alice died peacefully, at home, on Monday June 23rd. Predeceased by her beloved husband Doctor Andrew SASS- KORTSAK (1986.) She was born July 19th, 1921 in Budapest, Hungary and immigrated to Toronto with Andrew in 1949. She channelled her deep knowledge and love of Italian language, art and literature into a career as a librarian in Fine Arts book selection at the University of Toronto. She and Andrew opened their home and hearts to many Hungarian refugees in 1956 and, in succeeding years, were gracious hosts to many good Friends and colleagues at their Mt. Pleasant Road home.
She loved the beauty of nature and art; she was unfailingly elegant. We counted on her to know how to handle gracefully any situation, and to answer all manner of Latin, grammatical and linguistic questions. She was much loved and respected by all who knew her.
Loving mother of Peter (Hilda,) Andrea and Christina (Chris GREEN.) Much loved and devoted Nagymami to Melanie and Daphne SASS- KORTSAK, and Andrew and Matthew Sass-Kortsak GREEN. She will be deeply missed by her brother and sister-in-law, Zoltan and Claire KOLLEY in Toronto and her sister Emmy JANOSSY in Budapest, and their families.
We are grateful to her devoted caregivers, who made it possible for her to live in her home over the past several years.
The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East) from 5-9 p.m. on Thursday, June 26th. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, 432 Sheppard Avenue East, Toronto, M2N 3B7 on Friday, June 27th at 10: 30 a.m. If desired, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
