On Monday June 11, 2018, in her 98th year, this beautiful, kindhearted, gentle yet strong woman, who nurtured and loved us throughout our lives, passed peacefully in the arms of her daughter Sharon. Anne was the cherished wife of the late Ted Every (50 years) and the beloved mother of the late Allan, Joan (Howard), Brian (Lina), Barb (Garth), and Sharon (Harry). She was the most excellent grandmother of Karina, Erik (Torie), Stephen (Yoshimi), Jennifer (Randy), John (Sandi), Ann (Alfred), Kristen, and Emily;and the greatest greatgrandmother of Gabriella, Juliet, Ryan, Madison, Henry, Isabelle, and Emma. She will be remembered with love and respect by her family and all who knew her.
Anne was fortunate to have received exceptional care from many healthcare providers over the years, some for decades, as well as invaluable support from the staff and services of local agencies. We would like to express our gratitude to them for their dedication. The combined efforts of all helped Anne "stay on her feet" for as long as she did.
Visitation will take place Tuesday, June 19, 2018 from 4 - 8 p.m. at Turner & Porter - Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke. Private family service will be held at a later date.
Donations in Anne's memory may be made to Etobicoke Services for Seniors, Storefront Humber Inc., or the charity of your choice.
May 5, 1921 - June 16, 2018 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear father, grandfather and uncle at Bridgepoint Hospital. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Lillian Kates (nee Kroch) and is survived by his children, Louis (wife Goldie), Naomi (late husband Steven and children, Roshaya and Ben) and Celina (daughter, Hilary); and his daughter-in-law, Tayva Graham (nee Milner), wife of his late son, Philip (sons, Jordan and Elliot). He was also predeceased by his loving second wife, Kay Hill; and survived by her children, David (wife, Peggy and children), Margaret Smith (husband, Steven and children), and John. He was also predeceased by his siblings: sister, Gretl Katz; sister, Cornelia (Nelly) James and her husband, Jack (and survived by their children, Peter James, wife, Lara, and Genevieve, husband, Andrew Lawson and their children); brother, Herman and his wife, Anita (and survived by their children, Valerie Jacobs, husband Gerald and children, and Martin), sister Lola (Suzi) Jeremy, Olga (Ollie) Shuttleworth and her husband Fred (and survived by their children Yvonne Baab, husband John and children, and Paul, wife Jacki and children) and sister Erika Foxman and her husband Louis. He was also predeceased by his parents, Baruch and Chana Katz. Born in Vienna, he fled from Nazi persecution to England from where he was sent to an internment camp in New Brunswick and despite coming to Canada with nothing, through determination, intellect, energy and creativity earned advanced degrees in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Toronto where he built the first computer in Canada and subsequently founded and led a series of companies focused on computing and consulting, which achieved a number of world firsts including the first computerized traffic control system, the first computerized land use system and other achievements. He was honoured with an Order of Canada (2011), Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and was named Chancellor of the University Waterloo (1979 - 1985).
Beyond his many accomplishments, he was the most generous and caring individual to friends, family and society. He was an eternal optimist, always enthused about the next project. And he was just such fun to be with, always injecting his sense of humour and zest for life into any situation. The family appreciates and is grateful to the many Doctors, nurses and staff at Christie Gardens, Toronto Western and Bridgepoint Hospitals during the past months.
He will be forever missed and forever remembered by all of us.
