JAMES, Gayle Marlene (née GILCHRIST)
(April 15, 1940-May 30, 2008)
Gayle Marlene Gilchrist JAMES passed away on Friday, May 30, 2008 at the age of 68 years with close family members by her side. Gayle met lymphoma and death as she lived her life; carefully researched, discussed at length and then accepted the outcome with a calm dignity and a touch of black humour. Born April 15, 1940 in rural Alberta, she attended a one room school taught by her father, high school in Castor and on to the University of Alberta (B.A. English 1962) and University of Toronto (B.S.W. 1963, M.S.W. 1966). Gayle was predeceased by her parents, Lela (GREENWALT) and Don GILCHRIST, her brother, Don, her sister, Norma, and her beloved canine, Lady. She will be missed by her brother, Garry (Elly) Victoria, British Columbia; her nieces and nephews, Debby DOBSON (Ed HALL), Becky DOBSON, Melanie DOBSON (Graeme ROCKER) all of Nova Scotia, Kim DOBSON (Ramona KRAEMER) of Ontario; Laura, Jacqueline and Nicole GILCHRIST of Victoria she will also be missed by her grand-nieces, nephews and god children, Karen, Esther, Alex, Chris, Sarah, Emily, Adam, Patrick, Zac, Linda, Ben, Erin and Sean; as well as her great-grandnephew, Nahze; honorary aunt, Jean PEETERS of Victoria, British Columbia as well as by Doctor K.W. JAMES. She started her social work career with the Alberta Child Guidance Clinic before joining the Education Clinic, Edmonton Public School Board in 1967 and then the University of Calgary, the Faculty of Social Work in Edmonton in 1975 before moving to Calgary in 1994 and retiring as Associate Professor Emeritus in 2004. While working with students with learning disabilities and their families, she developed a consummate passion for public issues that led to a life-long involvement in social advocacy and public policy. Her dedication to social work and inspirational leadership was legendary, holding many professional association positions, first as Registrar (1974-1977), President (1979-1981) and Treasurer (1996-98) of the Alberta Association of Social Workers and President of the Canadian Association of Social Workers (1981-83). Gayle's international leadership began in 1978 and was capped by being elected Canada's first President of the International Federation of Social Workers (1988-1992). She was instrumental in Canada hosting the first world social work conference in 1984 and the establishment of the International Federation of Social Workers Human Rights Commission in 1988 to advocate for missing, wrongfully detained and tortured social workers and students. Appointed by the Prime Minister to Chair the National Council of Welfare (1986-1989), she was the senior non-governmental organization delegate on the Minister of Health and Welfare's social policy mission to the Republic of China and the only woman and only non-governmental organization member of Canada's delegation to the United Nations Welfare Ministers Inter-Regional Consultation on Developmental Social Welfare in 1987. She was a founding member of the Edmonton Association for Children with Learning Disabilities, Canadian Research Institute for Law and Family, Canadian Social Work Foundation, Weiler Award Trust; long time board member of the Canadian Council of Social Development and International Council of Social Welfare, Canada; and member of Kings College Circle, University of Toronto. Her many honours included an Alberta Achievement Award (Excellence Category), Exemplary Contribution Award (Alberta Association of Social Workers), 75th Anniversary Award (University of Toronto, Faculty of Social Work), Outstanding National Service Award (Canadian Association of Social Workers), Teaching Excellence Award (University of Calgary), Arbor Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service (University of Toronto), inaugural Andrew Mouravieff-Apostol Medal (International Federation of Social Workers) and Lifetime Achievement Award (Pulse of Social Work, Calgary). Gayle was an inspiration and beloved mentor to countless students, colleagues, Friends and family. She was uncompromising in her support of students and an incisive media commentator on social policy issues. Unphased by her illness in her final years, she devoted untold hours of volunteer expert witness testimony to help victims of eugenic sterilizations win a landmark class action settlement. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, those touched by Gayle may forget her exact words or the specifics of what she did, but they will never forget how special she made them feel. A special thank you to Doctor T. Thaell, Doctor E. Liu, and to the staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre for the excellent care they provided to Gayle over the last seven years. A Memorial Celebration of Gayle's Life will be held at the Rozsa Centre, University of Calgary, on Monday, July 14, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will follow. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to the charity of your choice or to the Gayle Gilchrist Gold Medal Development Fund, Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary, PF3256 2500 University Drive N.W., Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2N 1N4 Phone: (403) 220-5942 Fax: (403) 282-7269 E-mail: socialwk@ucalgary.ca In living memory of Gayle Gilchrist JAMES, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W., Calgary, Alberta Telephone: 1-800-661-1599.

KRANTZ, Aleyda (née TEN ZELDAM)
Born April 24, 1927, died May 25, 2008. Lidy, as she was known to all of her Friends, left us peacefully after suffering a tragic accident and then battling leukemia for the last few months. Wife of Ronald KRANTZ (2005,) mother to Michael (1993,) Peter (Shelley HUSON,) Gregory (Susan HOWARD.) Oma to Aleyna, Nicola, Lily, Daniel and Augustus. Sister to Paula (1964) OTTO, Mieke and Mello in Holland, and Mien and Henk in the U.S., as well as many nieces and nephews in both countries. Lidy was truly a remarkable woman. Originally from Nijmegen, Holland she was a Phys Ed. teacher, a flight attendant, craftsmaker, storekeeper, homemaker, and for the last 25 years a medical secretary. Married for 53 years to Ron, Lidy did everything with style and flair. She was vibrant, beautiful, energetic, caring, creative, stubborn, strong, loyal, funny, fun-loving and loving, very proud of her Dutch heritage and equally proud to call herself Canadian. She was a long time breast cancer survivor who supported the Canadian Cancer Society. She was a volunteer with the Arthritis Society, for many years with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, was a staunch supporter of Doctor Henry Morgentaler, and a proud member of the Red Hat Society. She loved the arts, Tafelmusik, and together with her 'theatre girls' she supported for many years Soulpepper, Canadian Stage, and especially the Shaw Festival. In lieu of flowers any donation to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. A celebration of Lidy's life will take place this summer. Funeral arrangements with The Simple Alternative.

Ordinary day, extraordinary tragedy
Couple killed on Highway 400 remembered as truck drivers await next court date
By Susan KRASHINSKY, Page A12
It was the kind of day that shouldn't have been remarkable at all, much less tragic.
On a cloudy Saturday, Don LOURIE got into his car. His wife, Elsie, was in the passenger's seat. The Scarborough couple set off along Highway 400 on a pleasure trip to Rama, Ontario
Meanwhile, Gurmail Singh BRAICH and Ali BASER steered their dump trucks onto the same highway - another afternoon on the job.
Before the end of the day, the LOURIEs would be dead, Mr. BRAICH and Mr. BASER would be in custody and three families would have their lives upended.
At the funeral yesterday, Dan LOURIE remembered his parents as high-spirited, generous and full of stories.
"I will never tire of Don and Elsie's wonderful adventures," he said.
For 21 years, the LOURIEs ran Chunky Fries, a chip truck at the 400 Market. When Mr. LOURIE sold the wagon last year, he had hoped to have more free time, manager Scott SAUNDERS said.
"You could always count on Don to be a gentleman. He was a great man to know," he said.
On Saturday, a dump truck headed south on Highway 400 collided with the concrete median. The tailgate came off the truck and flew into the northbound lanes, where it crashed through the windshield of an oncoming sport utility vehicle.
Elsie LOURIE was killed instantly, and Mr. LOURIE died shortly after. They were both 75.
Mr. BRAICH, of Brampton, is charged with dangerous driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death, while Mr. BASER, of Toronto, is charged with dangerous driving.
Defence counsel Rudi COVRE is representing both of them. He described them as hardworking family men caught in a tragic situation.
"Three families' lives have been destroyed," he said in an interview Wednesday.
Neither man had a previous criminal record.
Mr. BRAICH was released Tuesday on $100,000 bail. Mr. BASER was granted bail on Wednesday, at $30,000.
Their bail conditions forbid them to drive or even have keys to a motor vehicle, Crown counsel Harold DALE said in an interview.
Standing outside the courthouse in Newmarket on Wednesday, Mr. BASER's teenage son said the truck-driving job was the best work his father had found since coming to Canada from Turkey about a decade ago.
"He's the only one working in the family," said 16-year-old Ali. "What are we going to do now?"
He stubbed out his cigarette and excused himself. "I got to go get my dad," he said.
Mr. BRAICH and Mr. BASER will return to court in May.

Stabbing ends 20 years of peace for Afghan couple
Police detail fatal attack at Brampton mall
By Anthony REINHART and Timothy APPLEBY and Susan KRASHINSKY, Page A1
Brampton, Ontario -- They called him Papa around the Planet Ford dealership, although Rahim SHAHGHASY was just 53.
The nickname just seemed to fit Mr. SHAHGHASY, a car detailer with a fatherly manner whose love of friendly chatter came a close second to the fondness he held for his wife, Nazifa, and their two grown children.
Yesterday, those children, along with Friends, relatives and neighbours, struggled with a horror at odds with the peaceful life the couple had led since leaving Afghanistan for Canada two decades ago: their violent deaths outside a Brampton strip mall at the hands of a seemingly crazed man they didn't know.
"This man was armed with two knives and the attack was completely unprovoked," Inspector Norm ENGLISH of the Peel homicide squad told a packed media conference.
"The husband saw what was occurring and attempted to save his wife, but was overpowered by the male."
The 28-year-old assailant remains under police guard in hospital recovering from serious knife wounds he inflicted on himself after the noon-hour attack on Wednesday outside the Red Maple Plaza.
The incident was initially thought to be a marital dispute in which a woman was killed along with a male passerby trying to help her, but police amended their theory yesterday.
Insp. ENGLISH said Ms. SHAHGHASY had just made a dental appointment at the plaza and was walking to her car when she was accosted by the knife-wielding man, who was "very well known" to police, though a stranger to her.
Her husband, meanwhile, had made a quick trip into a small grocery store in the plaza. When he came out, he saw his wife being attacked and ran to her.
"Both victims suffered fatal stab wounds and died at the scene," Insp. ENGLISH said, adding that Mr. SHAHGHASY first made his way, bloodied, into another business in the plaza to ask a merchant to call for help.
Police arrived to find the assailant stabbing himself in the neck and used a taser to subdue him. His condition, described as critical but stable yesterday, has prevented police from questioning him and has delayed the laying of second-degree murder charges. His name will be withheld until that happens, likely in the next few days, the officer said.
The suspect, a Brampton resident, was out on bail on a charge involving violence, which Insp. ENGLISH would not disclose.
Autopsies will be conducted today and the funeral will be held as soon as possible, in keeping with Islamic custom.
The circumstances of the triple stabbing, which pushed Peel's homicide tally for the year to 11, are being examined by the province's Special Investigations Unit, which probes all police-related confrontations resulting in death or serious injury.
"The victims are wonderful people who were outstanding members of our community," Insp. ENGLISH said.
The impact on the community was evident in the parade of vehicles that converged yesterday on Siesta Court, a quiet cul-de-sac of 13-year-old homes where the SHAHGHASYs bought a tidy, brick-clad two-storey house for $415,000 in 2006.
Their home, about 10 kilometres from where they died, was often the scene of happy gatherings, but yesterday, relatives and Friends wept and embraced in the street, while news reporters and a few neighbours looked on.
"The family is in a state of shock," said Shawn JAMSI, whose wife is Ms. SHAHGHASY's sister. "My wife has been in the hospital, back and forth" from the shock, he said.
Ms. SHAHGHASY ran a clothing store in Brampton, and "I'd always see her dress up really professional with a briefcase or a purse, and I always thought, 'wow,' said neighbour Christina SASSO.
Yesterday morning, Ms. SASSO watched as the couple's 19-year-old daughter, Kubra, prepared the outside of the house for the onrush of grieving kin.
"I just saw her sweeping the driveway, the dirt; I was just watching her, just sweeping and sweeping," Ms. SASSO said. "It looked like she was in a daze, and it just brought tears."
Mr. SHAHGHASY had been slowly but steadily recovering from a workplace accident about two years ago, neighbours said. He had been using a walker to get around, but had recently moved up to a cane.
"I said, 'I'm so happy to see you like that,' and he said, 'Yes, I'm doing really good,' Gorretti ANDRADE, who lives a few doors away, recalled from an encounter three weeks ago.
The couple's positive outlook and good humour came up time and again in interviews with those who knew them.
Giovanni ZAMBITO, who lives next door, recalled them as "probably the nicest people I ever met, to tell you the truth."
Gurpreet VANDER, also a neighbour, broke into tears upon learning what had happened. She said Mr. SHAHGHASY often played with her children and would stop on the way to get his mail and chat, since they both spoke Urdu.
"No other families understand our language, and we don't understand their language," Ms. VANDER said. "So sometimes we would talk."
Mr. SHAHGHASY's penchant for talk was well known to several car dealers in the Brampton Auto Mall along Bovaird Drive, where he cleaned cars in preparation for delivery. He most recently worked at Planet Ford, while the couple's 22-year-old son, Qaiss, is a salesman at a nearby Mitsubishi dealership.
Between phone calls in the showroom yesterday, a young receptionist at Planet Ford described the elder Mr. SHAHGHASY as a wise man who, despite being unable to work recently, would drop in to share stories of his Afghan childhood or dispense fatherly advice.
"He would tell me stories about how he was raised back home, and how he met his wife, and how he loved his wife," she said.
Yesterday, his co-workers found themselves in the same state of sad confusion as the couple's relatives and neighbours.
"I couldn't believe it; it was devastating," Julee FARIAS said from behind her desk in the service department. "We did love him."

KRAUSS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-02-18 published
ANGUS Doctor Margaret S. (née SHARP,) LLD (Hon,) C.M.
Kingston, Ontario, who was in her 100th year, died peacefully on February 15th, 2008, surrounded by her family.
Margaret ANGUS was born in Chinook, Montana on May 23, 1908. She was the daughter of Ulysses Simpson Grant SHARP and Cora KRAUSS. She was raised in Fort Benton, Montana from 1910 to 1926. Following her high school graduation she was awarded a full scholarship and graduated with a B.A. from the University of Montana, Missoula, Montana. In 1929 she married Professor William ANGUS; their marriage lasted 66 years until his death in 1996. She lived in Ithaca, New York when her husband completed his PhD at Cornell University and then at Dekalb, Illinois when her husband taught at Northern Illinois University. In 1937, she came to Kingston when her husband accepted a teaching position at Queen's University. She resided in Kingston for the rest of her life.
She was predeceased by her husband, Professor William ANGUS, M.A., PhD, LL.D. (Hon), who was Emeritus Professor of Drama at Queen's. She was also predeceased by her older brother Admiral U.S.G. SHARP jr., (United States Navy ret.) who was Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Fleet in the Vietnam War and by her younger brother Lieutenant (jg) Thomas F. SHARP who was executive officer on the submarine USS Pickerel that went missing in Japanese waters in 1943.
She is survived by her daughter Barbara M. MORGAN (Owen) and her son James G. ANGUS (Lorna,) both of Kingston. She is survived by 7 grandchildren -- David MORGAN (Linda,) Allison MORGAN, and Elspeth MORGAN, all of Kingston and by Philip MORGAN (Megan) of Perth and by Andrew MORGAN (Daina,) Jennifer ANGUS and Grant ANGUS, all of Toronto. She has 7 great-grandchildren.
At Queen's, Doctor ANGUS initially was a tutor and also assisted in the costuming of over 75 drama productions. From this she developed through acquisitions from many Kingston families museum pieces that now form the Queen's University Museum Collection of Canadian Dress which is on display at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre. From 1957 to 1968 she was the Director of Radio at Queen's for the campus station CFRC.
Dr. ANGUS developed a keen interest in the early history of Kingston. She wrote and presented a series of short talks on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio in the late 1940's and wrote for radio several short dramas based on historical facts.
Dr. ANGUS was a tireless and detailed researcher on local history. She wrote 18 papers in Historic Kingston, the annual publication of the Kingston Historical Society and also served as the Society President.
In time she broadened her interest beyond local history to matters of Architectural Conservancy and Heritage Preservation and was a very active advocate. In these areas she served on many Kingston boards and on a number of Ontario and National Boards. She served as President of the Ontario Historical Society (1969-71) and on the Heritage Canada Board (1974-1979).
She produced a number of Heritage research studies and reports for the Federal Government, St. Lawrence Parks Commission, Ontario Heritage Foundation and Royal Military College.
Dr. ANGUS also wrote a number of major published works. Her first book, The Old Stones of Kingston is now in its 6th printing. Among others she wrote the are the 2 volume History of Kingston General Hospital, The Story of Bellevue House (a National Historic Site) and Summerhill Queen's (the Principal's residence).
Dr. ANGUS was frequently in demand for talks and presentations on local history and conservancy; over a 35 year period she gave over a 150 talks. When she lived at historic Cartwright House she conducted many tours and described the house's history. Not surprisingly, she received many requests from individuals to help them in their genealogical family research efforts.
Dr. ANGUS was recognized for her contributions and received 27 honours and awards. She received her honorary LLD Doctorate from Queen's in 1973. In 1992, she was made a Member of the Order of Canada. Queen's Alumni recognized her with awards/medals from the Associations in Kingston, Montreal and Ottawa. She was named Kingston Citizen of the Year in 1968. She was awarded the Ontario Historical Gold Medal in 1974 and the Silver Jubilee Medal of the Queen in 1977. Her alma mater, the University of Montana, gave her the Distinguished Alumni Award in 1990.
A great part of Margaret ANGUS' life was devoted to researching and promoting the history of her adopted country. In 2002, at a testimonial dinner for the establishing of a scholarship in her name, the senior officer of Heritage Canada described her as "the best historical researcher in Canada."
Peg ANGUS was a remarkable person. She adored her husband Bill and loved her family dearly. She was also immensely proud of her older brother's achievements, and with both living well into their 90's, they maintained a happy and enduring relationship. She has many Friends who miss her but will also retain fond memories.
The funeral service will be held at Saint_James Anglican Church, 10 Union Street West, Kingston, on Tuesday, February 19 at 2: 00 p.m. Interment Cataraqui Cemetery. A memorial celebration will also be held at Memorial Hall, City Hall, Kingston on Wednesday, February 27 at 4: 00 p.m.
As expressions of sympathy the family would appreciate memorial donations to the Margaret Angus Fellowship at the Museum of Health Care (Kingston General Hospital).

FRASER, James Kenneth " Ken"
Friday, December 14 a funeral service was held to celebrate the 96 year life of James Kenneth FRASER. Ken passed away suddenly at Grey Gables, Markdale on December 11 with his wife of 71 years, Elva, by his side.
Ken was born on Lot 36, Concession 9 of Proton Township, September 4, 1911. He was the fourth son of James A. FRASER and Elizabeth WALTON, brother of Albert, Jack, Mel and Lena McQUARRIE, who have predeceased him. Ken attended S.S.#10 school and went on to graduate from King Edward High School in Dundalk. He married Elva HENDRY, daughter of William HENDRY and Emma PALLISTER on September 12, 1936 and took over the farm where he was born. Ken and Elva raised four children, Maxine, Margaret, Don and Harvey. In 1973 they retired from farming and moved to Dundalk. In 2003 Ken and Elva moved to Grey Gables, where Ken enjoyed the community of residents and care people there.
Ken was truly a man of the soil, he began farming, ploughing the fields with a one and two furrow plough and horses. He purchased his first tractor in 1945, with his father-in-law. During his time of farming he saw many changes. There was nothing fairer to Ken than a clean field of grain waving in the wind or a new born calf frolicking in the pasture, (especially if it was a shorthorn). His passion was farming, and he loved the land and took pride in what he could do with it. When he left the farm Ken worked for Gohcon, a farm tilling company, for a few years and found this enjoyable as he still worked with the land and had a chance to see many farms of the area. His vegetable garden and his roses were his pride and joy during his retirement time in Dundalk and kept him busy, when he wasn't lawn bowling, in the summertime.
Ken enjoyed a game of cards and was a regular visitor to the little card room in Dundalk. He was noted for introducing the euchre game pepper to Grey Gables. Ken took great interest in what was going on in the world and faithfully read the newspapers and watched the news. Quite often reminding his family of what was up in politics and clueing them in on things they should be aware of. He was always standing up for the agriculture community, even in the last three weeks of his life, when he took up the torch, that they should have butter on the tables at Grey Gables. So with a petition he went the rounds of the residents and staff and made a presentation to administration. It was received and butter was put on the tables. Ken being who he was went one step further and wrote a letter to Gay Lea congratulating them on their 50th anniversary, and of course informed them of what he had done at Grey Gables. He also made note that he had been on the United Dairy and Poultry Board which was the beginning of Gay Lea. A week after his passing a package came from Gay Lea with four pounds of butter and a 50th anniversary limited edition of a Gay Lea truck. This was Ken FRASER to the end.
Ken devoted not only his time to farm and family, but to his community and his church. He served 11 years as a director of the Dundalk Agricultural Society and a term as president, and was 4-H Calf Club leader during that time. One of his proudest moments of his later years was opening the 150th Anniversary of Dundalk Fair in 2005. He was a director on the Dundalk Co-Op, and a director on the Grey County Hog Producers. Ken was a trustee on Proton Township School Board, and seven years on Proton Township Council. He attended Knox Presbyterian Church at Ventry where he served on the board of managers, and also served as an elder of Erskine Presbyterian Church, Dundalk. After moving to Grey Gables, Ken was active on the residence council.
Rev. Mark DAVIDSON, minister of Erskine Church and Rev. John HOGERWAARD, former minister of Erskine, officiated at the service in Erskine Presbyterian Church, Dundalk. Service commenced with Psalm 100, a Psalm of thanksgiving. Hymns sang were "All the Way My Saviour Leads Me", "And Can It Be That I Should Gain" and "Beyond the Sunset". Scripture read by granddaughter Christine BUTLER was Psalm 23, 1st Corinthians 15: 55-57 and Romans 8:35-39. Rev. John HOGERWAARD gave a meditation "A Living Hope" that Hope being through Jesus Christ, and Him alone. Memories were given by grandchildren Shawn WALTER, Brent FRASER and son Harvey FRASER. Rob SCOTT, grand_son, sang "In the Bulb There is a Flower." Pallbearers were grand_sons, Brent FRASER, Shawn WALTER, Richard FRASER, Rob SCOTT, grand_son-in-law Henry REINDERS and great-grand_son Mark REINDERS. Flowerbearers were granddaughters, Christine BUTLER, Shelley KRAUTH, Shirley REINDERS and Julie BARRETT.
Ken leaves behind his wife Elva, daughters Maxine (Bob) SCOTT and Margaret (Ray) WALTER and sons Don (Cay) FRASER and Harvey (Terry) FRASER, nine grandchildren, predeceased by one, and nine great-grandchildren.
The many people who paid their respects at the time of Ken's passing would have been received with great appreciation by Ken. He was among a generation that there are few remaining. And many of them who have been great examples of lives well spent no matter what the challenge was before them. Harvey FRASER, youngest of the family, summed it all up when he said "Dad, you were one of a kind, and you leave big footsteps to follow".

(June 18, 1927-February 17, 2008)
It is with great sorrow that the family announces the passing of Lidia SKRYPUCH, on February 17, 2008 at the Bradford General Hospital.
Born in Zolochiw, Ukraine. Only child of Wolodymyr KRAWCHUK, a magistrate, and Michelina, a school teacher, Lidia studied ballet and pharmacy. World War 2 engulfed their homeland. In 1944, the family escaped by walking through land mine studded countryside and riding in open boxcars with nothing to eat but the few potatoes they could find in abandoned farmers' fields. They narrowly avoided being taken to a concentration camp by bribing a guard. They took refuge in a displaced person's camp in Austria. Lidia took on menial jobs to help make ends meet. While in exile in Austria, she met John and they married in 1949 and came to Canada shortly after. They lived briefly in Montreal and London, then she and John moved to Brantford in 1954 where John began his medical practice. Lidia managed his office for 41 years.
Lidia was an award-winning director and choreographer for the Ukrainian dancers for Brantford's Village Ukrainia for eighteen years. She was also a long-time president of the Ukrainian Catholic Women's Auxiliary in Brantford, raising money for the church in a variety of ways, including writing and publishing a cookbook. Pope John Paul II presented Lidia with the Medal of the Holy Cross for her outstanding service to the Ukrainian Catholic Church and the Vatican. She was also presented with a Centennial Citation for meritorious service in the City of Brantford by mayor Bowen.
Lidia was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She was a fabulous cook and a gracious hostess. Her tortes were legendary. She expected the best of everyone and always gave the best of herself.
Loving wife of Doctor John SKRYPUCH. Sadly missed by sons Orest and Roman and their wives Marsha and Lori. Loving baba of Neil, Daniel and Nicole. Dear daughter of the late Wolodymyr and Michelina KRAWCHUK. She will be missed by her Friends and family in Brantford, Toronto, Detroit, Ukraine and Florida.
