CALICH, John (1928-2008)
John passed away on June 18th, peacefully and with his family by his side, as a result of cancer and heart failure. Beloved husband to Anita. Loving father to Norma (Bill), Mike (Adriane) and Rick. Dear Grandpa to Joel, Dean, Marta, Hannah and Andrew. John was a devoted family man who worked hard and lived simply, with honesty and integrity. Throughout his life, John worked with his hands. After many years in the sheet metal and air balance industries, he dedicated himself to a career as a self-taught craftsman and became renowned for his fine hand made briar pipes, which are treasured by collectors throughout the world. John will be remembered by those who knew him best, for his love of family, his talent, modesty, independent spirit, and especially his wry sense of humour. Telemarketers may now rest easier, knowing that John will no longer be answering the phone. The family wishes to most sincerely thank the many dedicated physicians, nurses and others who have treated John, including most recently Drs. BRADE, WAN and Andrea MOLCKOVSKY and the remarkable technicians at Princess Margaret Hospital; Doctors GUPTA, LE FEUVRE, SHARMA, PATEL, McISAAC, KING, TIU and MURTHY at the Trillium Health Centre and our longtime friend and family physician Doctor Bohdan MOLCKOVSKY. At John's request, there will be a cremation and private family ceremony. In lieu of flowers, donations would be gratefully accepted in John's name, to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, the Cancer Society or another charity of your choice. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Turner and Porter 'Peel Chapel' (905)-279-7663. Online condolences at: www.turnerporter.ca

WAND, Agnes Cecilia (January 5, 1918-June 25, 2007)
A mother's touch, a tender smile, A gentle warm embrace The unconditional gift of love No one can take her place. You left this earthly world behind A year ago this June Although your years on earth were many It always seemed too soon. We long for you mother God called you away Your wisdom and laughter we miss Our hearts - they are broken - your presence we grieve But we still feel the warmth of your kiss. We feel you beside us in each step that we take And in the beautiful sunsets and moon You stand beside us through burdens and strife And your face is in the flowers that bloom. And now you dance softly with Clare in your arms With a meaningful unspoken bond Your love has endured the passing of time As the "waltz of the angels" plays on. The love you gave us remains steadfast and strong No one can 'ere take your place And God has rewarded His servant well For her deep unwavering faith. So rest well on that mountain dear mother of mine As you live now in eternity And know that I'm truly richer by far From the love that you've given to me. Written by D. Collrin Lovingly missed by your daughter Pauline, Ivan and Blossom.

RORKE, Gwendolyn (née WANNAMAKER)
Gwendolyn RORKE Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, breast cancer survivor. Born October 12, 1908, near Ameliasburg, Ontario Died November 17, 2007, in Souris, Prince Edward Island, of old age, aged 99.
By Derek NEWTON, Page L10
Gwendolyn WANNAMAKER began her life on a small farm, the only surviving child of Zella TRUMPOUR and Walter WANNAMAKER.
An intelligent and determined woman, Gwen believed in the importance of education, deportment and etiquette. She was one of few women in Canada to earn a university degree in mathematics during the 1930s.
Gwen was an enthusiastic alumna of Queen's University in Kingston. She returned many times, most recently to celebrate her reunion 70 years after graduating. True to her guidance, all of Gwen's three children and eight grandchildren completed postsecondary education. Much to her delight, some of them went to Queen's.
Gwen married Colin RORKE, a fellow Queen's alumnus and mechanical engineer, and they eventually settled in Toronto with their children. In the 1950s, the RORKEs purchased a property in the Kawarthas, northeast of Toronto, beginning the labour of love of building a cottage. Always resourceful, Gwen fashioned curtains out of old soap bags from Lever Brothers Ltd., where Colin worked.
One of Gwen's proudest accomplishments was her term as president of the Canadian Home and School Federation in the 1960s.
A true lady, Gwen was always dignified, her outfits adorned with an elegant brooch or scarf. Kind actions were always promptly acknowledged with a thank you note, and there would be no stacking of dirty plates or resting of elbows at her table. But she wasn't one to take herself too seriously.
Gwen played a significant role in her grandchildren's lives and education, providing tireless homework assistance and even tutorials in cribbage and bridge. She braved numerous recitals, performances and commencement ceremonies.
Generous in spirit, Gwen knitted hundreds of teddy bears for a local women's shelter. Well into her 80s, she maintained her sharp mind, organizing indoor lawn bowling tournaments and playing bridge twice a week. She battled breast cancer and came through it with her spirit intact. Sadly, by her mid-90s, her intellect was lost to Alzheimer's disease. She outlived two of her three children, Harvey and Beverley, and spent her last few years in her daughter Sally's care in Prince Edward Island.
Gwen always enjoyed giving guided tours of Ontario's Prince Edward County to any willing grandchild. On the drive back from one such trip, we pulled off the road to admire the sunset at the end of a day of memories, history and a lesson on our family's roots. It is this picture of Gwen, strong and proud, that I will fondly remember.
Derek NEWTON is Gwendolyn's grand_son.
