DROINE, William " Bill"
Mr. William (Bill) DROINE, age 87, resident of Thunder Bay, passed away peacefully with his family by his side at Grandview Lodge January 23, 2008, after a brief illness. Bill was born October 2, 1920 in Port Arthur, attended Central School and graduated from P.A.T.S. (Hillcrest High School). He proudly served in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War 2 on the corvette HMCS Camrose. In 1946, he married the love of his life, Ollie KINASCHUK and they settled in Port Arthur to raise their family. Bill worked at Canadian Car and Foundry for 21 years and then for Vercival and Company, retiring in 1979. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Elks. After the loss of his beloved wife Ollie in 1992, Bill lived independently in his own home until his move to Grandview Lodge in November 2007. Our Dad was happiest when he was with his family, whether it was walking in the bush looking for mushrooms, blueberry picking, fishing, Sunday picnics, or playing hockey on the backyard rink with his three children. In his later years, he kept a regular routine of exercising on his stationary bike, doing sit-ups and watching Star Trek and Bluejay and Leaf games on television. He was an avid reader and believed in the importance of a higher education. In 1993, his twin granddaughters Kim and Michelle were born. 'Grampa' was extremely proud of all their accomplishments and his face lit up whenever they visited him or he spoke of them. Our Dad loved playing crib, and when he could no longer see all those 15-2's, he played a modified version with his 'coach' son-in-law Bill where they 'beat the board' the last game they played on January 22. Dad was predeceased by his wife Ollie in 1992, his parents Feydor and Lena DRAGANIUK and older brother Steve. He will be deeply missed by his son Bob (Linda) Owen Sound, son Bill (Mary Jane FINLAYSON) Toronto, daughter Corinne (Bill) KREZONOSKI and granddaughters Kim and Michelle, Thunder Bay and numerous other nieces, nephews sisters-in law and one brother-in-law. Cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke or Diabetes Association. Thank You We would like to thank the staff of Grandview Lodge (F wing) for their exceptional care and compassion during our Dad's stay.

But for those who love
Time is eternity.

CRAIK, Kathleen Julia " Judy"
We are saddened to announce the passing of Judy CRAIK who died in the care of her family at home. Judy's large family came together from near and far bringing great comfort and the opportunity to share many of the family's memories together. Judy is survived by her husband of 55 years; Bruce, children: Ian (Judith), Peter (Lori), Ginny (Stephen), Sandy (Jane), Tim (Perky), Heather (Peter) and her grandchildren Jennifer, Edward, Brandon, Ben, Charlie, Jason, Alex, Adam, Ellie, George, Maddie and Graeme. Predeceased by her mother Kathleen DROPE, and siblings John and Jane, she now joins them with 'the best seat in the house'. Judy lived each day to its absolute fullest. It is fair to say that she accomplished more in a day than most contemplate in a week's time. Born in Toronto April 25th, 1929, one would be hard pressed to find someone who more fully lived the motto 'to whom much has been given, much is expected'. Proud of her Gooderham family heritage, which she has done much to preserve, Judy forged a legacy of her own, touching so many people through family, business and community service in Toronto, Dundas, Huntsville, Aurora and King Township. At the age of 11, she began her life long work on behalf of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire joining the Constance Waugh Chapter. She was Provincial President from 1969 to 1972 and National President from 1977-1978. During this time, the family transplanted to the shores of Fairy Lake where they revitalized Grandview Inn and Cabins and established Grandview Farm, a country inn that brought the joys of vacationing to hundreds of families over the years and providing vigour to the community of Huntsville. In 1986, Judy and Bruce 'retired' to King, where Judy started Mr. McGregor's Tea Room in Kleinburg. Also in Aurora, she gave her time and energy to the Welcome Table at Trinity Anglican Church. Through Judy's love of community, she became an active member of the first Canadian Chapter of the Compass Rose Society of the Anglican Communion. Loving 'all things bright and beautiful', Judy also enjoyed the time spent and people she met through the Garden Club of Toronto and Canada Blooms. All of this was accomplished with a uniquely strong character which imposed the highest standards on herself and those around her. Judy was an energetic and dynamic person who cared deeply for people exhibiting a great passion for helping to improve the lives of others, and the less fortunate. She will be remembered and missed by so many. Toujours en avant! Special and most sincere thanks from the family go out to the following: Ruth, Dolly, Sharon, Helma and Marjorie from TLC; Maryanne and Elaine from Bayshore; Doctor SHAPIRO of Southlake and to all of the other Friends and professionals that helped us along the way. Services will be held 2 p.m., Friday, July 11, 2008 at All Saint's Anglican Church, 12935 Keele Street (King Road and Keele Street), King City. In lieu of flowers, gifts of remembrance may be made to South Lake Cancer Centre (Newmarket), Mark Preece Family (Hamilton) House and the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire Children's Centre at the North York General Hospital.

DROPKIN, Arthur
Husband, father, grandfather, brother, son, mentor, retailer, amateur artist. Born May 29, 1928, in Brooklyn, New York Died January 26 in Toronto of complications following surgery, aged By Sheila DROPKIN; Gayle DROPKIN, Page L8
When Arthur served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, he was both relieved and disappointed at being stationed in Germany as a member of the army of occupation instead of being sent to the war zone - relieved that enemy soldiers wouldn't be shooting at him, but disappointed he wouldn't get to be a hero. In his early 20s, at 5 foot 10 and weighing less than 125 pounds, Arthur was anxious to show that size didn't mean everything.
After his discharge from service, Arthur became the children's wear manager of a New York-based department store. He was a workaholic who didn't let major snowstorms, floods or other impediments prevent him from showing up at work.
A born and bred New Yorker, he married Sheila, also a New Yorker, in 1956. In 1961 he accepted a job as children's wear buyer for a major Canadian retailer - "for two or three years." He and Sheila moved to Montreal, where their son, Adam, and daughter, Gayle, were born.
Sixteen years later, they relocated to Vancouver for two years and then to Toronto. After transferring into store operations, Arthur crisscrossed Canada to attend store openings and other special events.
He was known for his sharp wit and occasional practical jokes. When a friend fell and broke both knees, Arthur became his personal chauffeur and even carried him in his arms when necessary.
He was a fine athlete who played soccer in his youth and then took up golf and tennis. In his late 30s he became an avid skier, and despaired when forced to stop years later because of angina. He enjoyed coaching his son's hockey and baseball teams and never hesitated to ban unruly parents.
Two years after retiring, Arthur found a new career as a salesman for his son-in-law's firm, a job at which he excelled.
A devoted husband and father, he usually hid his emotions but cried when his father-in-law died and was joyous at the births of his children and two grandchildren. While he was occasionally critical of his children's choices and misdeeds, he was proud that his daughter's work ethic equalled his. He believed his grandchildren to be perfect and incapable of doing anything wrong. Fully supportive of his wife's professional endeavours, he didn't hesitate to make dinner or help himself to a bowl of cereal when she was delayed.
When he was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer, Arthur took the news stoically, handled the chemotherapy with grace and enjoyed bantering with his physicians, never hesitating to ask for assurance that they knew what they were doing. He is sorely missed.
Sheila DROPKIN is Arthur's wife and Gayle DROPKIN is his daughter.

DROZDIBOB, Mary (née Mara VALENTIC)
Wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, inspiring person. Born May 8, 1906, in Slunjska Selnica, Croatia. Died March 24 in Oshawa, Ontario, of old age, aged 101.
By Mary VALENTICH, Page L10
Mary was an enterprising person. She was also a friend, adviser and critic. Made of stern stuff, she didn't rest until a job was done. She spoke her mind with clarity and wry humour.
She was born Mara VALENTIC near Karlovac, Croatia. In 1924, she married Louis DROZDIBOB, and the next year gave birth to Joseph.
Louis left for Canada in 1928. After five years of hard times, Mara lost the family home. She lived with her husband's family as a semi-abandoned wife for another 7½ years, earning her keep by doing the chores.
She explored enrolling her son in the priesthood so he could have a profession. With a cousin she travelled barefoot over the fields to Zagreb, 40 kilometres away, but the priest treated them badly, and that was enough for Mara.
The long-awaited letter of invitation from Louis finally came. In 1940, Mara and her son reached Hamilton. On the train platform Mara saw an older man whom she did not recognize. It was not an easy transition, but Mary, as she became known in Canada, could "give as good as she got."
Renting and taking in boarders, Mary discovered life in Canada was mostly a hell of slavery in the early years, involving washing men's dirty working clothes by hand, pressing them with irons heated on stoves, cleaning rooms and spittoons, and preparing lunchboxes and meals.
Mary and Louis purchased their first house for $2,500 and sold it for $3,700. Their next house had rooms upstairs for boarders and a small business out front where Mary could sell food and cigarettes.
Their son, Walter, was born in 1941. By 1946, sleeping about four to five hours a night, Mary was worn out. The next year, Louis bought a resort on Rice Lake, Ontario For four years they lived a "crazy life," isolated in winter and in summer sometimes playing host to 20 guests at once.
In 1951, Louis got a job in Oshawa, where Mary operated a store and then a restaurant. There were also driving holidays through the United States to visit their son Joe and other relatives. Mary shrugged off their success: "Just work and don't give up." After eight years of serving food, they finally retired. Regrettably, Louis died in 1987.
In the 1990s, Mary lived in an apartment, walking up and down flights of stairs for exercise. Later, when wheelchair-bound, she insisted on pulling herself in and out of bed. At 100, she was participating in the mayor's town hall meeting.
She's gone but may still be watching over things. She used to stand guard beside her old washing machine that she admitted using until the 1990s. Like her reliable old wringer, Mary just kept going.
Mary VALENTICH is Mary's cousin.
