"VOL" 2003 Obituary


VOLGYESI o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-08-18 published
VOLGYESI, Andrew Stephen
Died August 14, 2003 following a difficult battle with cancer. Though cut short, his life was filled to the brim -- driven by his vision and his enterprising energy of which his architect's skills were but one expression. He loved beauty and design and his guiding philosophy was ''less is more''. He loved his many Friends, to whom he extended his well-known helping hand. He loved travel and music, skiing and squash. He loved good talk. He loved laughter and humour. Most of all, he loved his large and extended family to whom he was devoted always. He will be deeply missed by them all -- by his wife Diane, by his daughters and their partners Christina and Les, Lara and Rochelle, by his grandchildren Isabelle and Camilla, by the mother of his daughters Betty, by his sisters Vera and Suzanne, and by nephews and nieces throughout the world who knew and loved him. May he be remembered as the straight-shooter who loved life and all those in it. A private funeral service was held on Saturday, August 16 at Grace Church-on-the-Hill. Those wishing to remember Andrew are free to make a donation to the charity of their choice.

Beloved sister of Marian MAHAFFY (Guy, predeceased,) Bill PLAUNT, predeceased (Agnes,) Helen VOLLANS (Maurice, predeceased,) Donald PLAUNT, predeceased, Royal Canadian Air Force, World War 2 and Jean BENNESS, predeceased (Barry, predeceased.) Loving sister-in-law to George WRIGHT of Hanover, Ruth LAWS of Almonte, Murray THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON of Ottawa and Muriel VALENTIN of Stuttgart, Germany. Auntie Kae will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews and their families in the PLAUNT and THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON clans.
Born in Renfrew on April 29, 1914, she moved to Sudbury in 1924 where her father established his lumber business. She attended Central Public and Sudbury High School, Branksome Hall and graduated from the School of Nursing, University of Toronto, in 1937. After working in Toronto in public health, she returned to Sudbury the following year where she met and married Mac.
Kae loved to golf and curl, and took an avid interest in her family's history. She was very talented in the traditional arts, enjoying knitting, quilting and cooking. As an active community volunteer, she belonged to the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire where she was Regent and to the Salvation Army as an organizer for the annual fund raising drive and board member. She loved to travel with her husband and Friends, but her favourite place in the world was Lake Pogamasing where her parents established a family camp in 1941 and where she spent every summer with her family. She loved to entertain her Friends and her children's Friends, especially at Pog. We were blessed to have a mother and grandmother who stressed the importance of family, community and responsibility. She loved to bring people together and do things for them, to share her interests and her talents, she was kind and considerate to all she met, and along with Dad taught us how to dance and have fun.
Special thanks from the family to Dr. Reg KUSNIERCZYK and his staff, the Walford staff and Dr. ROCH and staff on the fifth floor of York Extendicare for their devoted and caring attention to Mother.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to Young Men's Christian Association Sudbury.
Memorial service in the R.J. Barnard Chapel, Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury, Tuesday, May 13th, 2003 at 11: 30 a.m. Cremation followed by interment at Lake Pogamasing. Friends may call 6-9 p.m. Monday, or gather in the chapel after 11 a.m. Tuesday.
