SEUCHARAN o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-01-22 published
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.
