KLEMENT, Olga M. (formerly WILLIAMS, née HARGREAVES)
(April 23, 1930-April 27, 2005)
Olga slipped peacefully into the afterlife on Wednesday, April 27, 2005 at home surrounded by her family. Born in Audenshaw, Lancashire, England she was the only child of Harry and Ethel HARGREAVES. She attended the University of Manchester graduating with an Honours degree in Architecture in 1953. She and David WILLIAMS, a graduate of the School of Town Planning at Manchester were married in 1955; their daughter Claire Margaret was born in 1956. In 1958 they all emigrated to Canada. Her interest in the arts led her to join the Art Gallery of Ontario and became a life member. She joined the Toronto Heliconian Club, and served a term as president. After a divorce she became more heavily involved in the arts; she taught at the Ontario College of Art and Design, wrote for the Ontario Crafts Council publication, Toronto Life, and was the author of the entry 'Canadian Interior Architecture' for the 36 volume Dictionary of Art published by Gage. In 1979 she was one of the founding members of the Canadian Society of Decorative Arts/Centre Canadian des arts décoratifs and its first president. Olga wrote numerous articles for the society's publication The Bulletin, illustrated by photographs by her husband Miro C. KLEMENT. Mrs. KLEMENT's interest in social causes centred on C.O.R.E. (Centre for Opportunities, Respect and Empowerment), an agency first established in 1914 in Toronto to provide support for women whose husbands were fighting in World War I. At this time it was known as the Women's Sheltered Workshop. Olga became a board member in 1969 and served as president for a number of years. Her greatest joy was her family, the company of her daughter Claire OLANOW and granddaughter Meredith. Her life changed after she met Miro KLEMENT in 1979 - they were married in Osgoode Hall on December 30, 1999. They shared an interest in the history of architecture, in art, in music, in oriental art and Miro's passion for photography. The culmination of one of their most important goals was achieved in finding the suitable resting place for the material which relates to Miro's family in Prague during the 1930's and 40's. They are especially pleased that the family archive will remain in Toronto, at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library at the University of Toronto. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2005 at 11 a.m. at St. James Cemetery in the Chapel of St. James-the-Less, 635 Parliament Street, Toronto. Flowers are gratefully declined. If desired, memorial donations may be made to Sierra Legal Defence Fund: 131 Water Street, Suite 214, Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 9Z9 or to C.O.R.E., 11 Charlotte Street, Toronto, Ontario M5V 2H5. Personal family condolences may be made by e-mail to: mck@accglobal.net. Funeral arrangements are entrusted with Turner and Porter 'Yorke' Chapel, Toronto 416-767-3153.
