KOSHAN, Ernie Orys
Of Colpoy's Bay surrounded by his loving family at Grey Bruce Health Services Wiarton on Friday, April 4th, 2008. “Ernie” Orys KOSHAN at the age of 65 years. Loving husband of 43 years to Virginia (née CIEMIEGA.) Cherished father of Terry and his wife Carolyn, of Brampton; and Andy and his partner Katie GRAHAM, of Owen Sound. Devoted grandfather of Spencer and Skye. Brother of Russ and his partner Betsy, of Toronto, and Jerry and his wife Judy, of Calgary; and brother-in-law of John HANDIAK and his wife Carol WILSON, and Edward CIEMIEGA and his wife Jenny. Sadly missed by his mother-in-law Bernice CIEMIEGA; cousin Danny BOJCUN and his wife Lorraine; and his many nieces, nephews, and Friends. Predeceased by his parents John and Jennie KOSHAN; his sister Elsie HANDIAK; and a sister-in-law Sue KOSHAN. Ernie grew up at Jane and Bloor in Toronto, and was raised in a loving and supportive family. He met Virginia, who would quickly become his soul mate, while they were students at Humberside Collegiate. Together they began to form the love and wisdom they would give to Terry, Andy and Carolyn. Ernie's positive outlook at every step in life was a great benefit to all he met. An accomplished principal, teacher, coach and realtor, Ernie's legacy of love, compassion and understanding will live in each person who had the privilege of knowing him. Ernie's final good example, a seven-month fight with lung cancer, will not be forgotten. Family invite Friends to call at the Thomas C.
