ObituaryIt is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Vera Djatschenko on November 7th, 2013. She leaves behind her husband of 62 years, Feodor, her daughter and son-in-law Ludy and Ron, and her grandchildren Veronica, Tim (and his partner Anja), Emily and Stephanie, who will miss her terribly and who will always love and cherish her. She was born in 1926 in Belukhovka, in the Ukraine, and after surviving the horrors of the Second World War in a German forced labour camp, emigrated to Canada in 1948. She never took her blessings and her freedom in her new homeland for granted. She was a doting wife, mother and grandmother, a devoted friend, a caring neighbour, a wonderful cook and homemaker, a skilled gardener and a devout member and chorister of the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church in Toronto. After a long and exemplary life Vera has earned her rest, and has joined her beloved son Viktor, who pre-deceased her in 2007, in the arms of God. Dearest Babi, you will forever be in our hearts. Our family would most sincerely like to thank the dedicated staff of Eden House for their superb care of Vera in the last years of her life. Your kindness, especially in her difficult final days, will never be forgotten. A memorial service will be held on at 7:30 on Sunday November 10, 2013, at Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church, 23 Henry Street, Toronto. The funeral service will be on Monday, November 11, 2013 at 10 am at the church. Interment will follow immediately after the service at York Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer's Society or World Vision in Vera's memory would be gratefully appreciated.
