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.

SOLTYS, Taras Paul
Entrepreneur, father, son, brother, Orange Revolutionary. Born December 24, 1955, in Toronto. Died October 18, 2007, in Toronto of cancer, aged 51
By Alexandra CHYCZIJ, Page L8
In the 1970s, Taras knocked on our door and asked for my sister Irene. Sensing a serious suitor, I proceeded to cross-examine him, perhaps a little too aggressively for a first encounter.
He was born and raised in Toronto, the son of Stephanie and Michael SOLTYS and older brother of Dianne WITIUK.
Taras survived my questioning, and soon he joined our weekly ski excursions in Collingwood, Ontario On the ski slopes, Taras initially made up in speed what he lacked in style. He developed a passion for skiing that he shared with his children, Chrystyna and Paul, who even persuaded him to try snowboarding.
When it came to children, Taras was a natural. He handled small babies with the same ease with which he held a football.
Taras combined his love of kids with his constant quest for new adventures by organizing a road trip across Ukraine with his children and two of their cousins. Taras, with four teenagers in tow, contended with everything from bears to kropyvo, a particularly nasty stinging nettle.
Ukraine's independence made Taras a pioneer in early joint ventures, equipped as he was with Canadian know-how and familiarity with the Ukrainian language and culture.
He is remembered by his associates at Consumers-Sklo-Zorya, his first venture in Ukraine, not only for the work ethic he instilled in them but for introducing them to the concept of charitable giving. The Charity Cash Cow Club he founded provided many low-income families with a cow, which offered sustenance during the transition from a Soviet economy.
Even though he often faced insurmountable odds, Taras never succumbed to the temptation of taking the easy road by smoothing the way with a little baksheesh. He was committed to the goal of ensuring that democratic principles and the rule of law become firmly entrenched in Ukraine.
Taras was an observer during the Orange Revolution, monitoring all three rounds of the 2004 presidential elections in the Crimea, an area he knew well from his most recent project in the oil business.
As he battled cancer, we shared the poignant memory of standing on Kiev's Independence Square singing Ukraine's national anthem along with hundreds of thousands of others.
Taras's hopes and expectations for reform following the Orange Revolution have yet to be fulfilled. But his greatest legacy is his children. Whenever we see in Chrystyna and Paul a familiar gentle smile or raised eyebrow, or hear a certain tone of voice or laugh, it will remind us of the person we loved and will always miss.
Alexandra CHYCZIJ is Taras's sister-in-law.

KERSELL, Marnie (née RUTHERFORD)
Marnie KERSELL was born on November 11, 1926. Her parents were Thomas Warriner RUTHERFORD and Rosalind Jane WITTON. Marnie had two sisters, Gay KIMPEL and Jane HANSULD. She grew up in a happy home on Lansdowne Rd. in Galt and met and fell in love with her future husband, George, at Galt Collegiate. They were married for 58 years and shared many interests and Friends. They were truly partners for life.
Marnie was loved, respected and admired by her three daughters, Mary, (Graham CALDWELL,) Jane (David SPARLING) and Ann (Paul RIDDELL, deceased.) She had a very close and warm relationship with her grandchildren, Anna and Scott Caldwell, Beth, Laura, Julie and Cam Sparling and Christine, Grace and Jimmy Riddell.
Her family recognized and appreciated Marnie's many talents and accomplishments. She was an extraordinary woman and, like so many women of her generation, she was a strong, independent thinker, a problem solver and a person who was never daunted by the task at hand.
She was a Phys. Ed. grad from the University of Toronto and was a talented athlete. She was an avid curler at the Galt Curling Club for many years and won the Ontario Mixed Curling Championship in 1962 and the Ladies' Tankard in 1965. Although she enjoyed all sports, golf was her passion. Over the years, she won 24 club championships both here, at the Galt Country Club, and in Florida. She was a member of the four person Ontario Senior Ladies' Team, which won the National Championship in Victoria in 1993. During her golfing career, Marnie had 9 holes-in-one, and shot her age three times. Marnie loved family time and especially enjoyed summers on Georgian Bay. She spent her youth cottaging at Pointe au Baril and later she, George and Gay and Doug KIMPEL built a cottage just up the shore on an island at Bayfield Inlet. Marnie never lost her enthusiasm for swimming, diving, canoeing, blueberrying and fishing. She and George also loved their winters in Florida and entertained many family members and Friends there over the years.
Marnie was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. She led a happy, fulfilled life. She died on June 19, 2008. It was very hard for us to let her go, and we will miss her greatly.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Epilepsy Ontario, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario or the charity of one's choice would be appreciated.
Memorial visitation will be held on Sunday, June 22, 2008 from 2-4 p.m. at Coutts Funeral Home, 96 St. Andrews Street, Cambridge.
