Radermacher, (Ija) Asja

Radermacher, (Ija) Asja (nee Stonskaja)
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye, after courageous battles with cancer, to our Mami, Oma and Baba on April 8th, 2014 at the age of 82.
Asja was the daughter of the late Larissa Nikolajewna-Stonskaja (1979) and
Gregori Plinokos (1938), granddaughter of Baron Nikolai Stonskoy and
Dame Valentina Smokowskaja and Pawel and Hascha Plinokos, sister of the late Irina (2010) and Nikolai Schtscherbina (2011) and beloved wife of the late Fred Radermacher (1991).
She leaves behind her devoted and loving daughter Margrit Voisin (Sean) her grandsons Gregory (Eda) and Matthew (Rebecca) Malcolm and her great-grandchildren William, Emma and Abagail.
Born on Dec. 3, 1931 in Simferopol in the Crimean Peninsula, to her mother Larissa a noble woman, and her father Gregori, Minister of Agriculture and Foreign Affairs. Asja had a prestigious upbringing with governesses and private schools. As her father held political position in several places. Her favourite was Sverdlovks in the Ural Mountains where her pastimes were skiing, sharp shooting and picking wild strawberries with her father in the outskirts of their summer home. The family lived most of the time in Kiev and Kharkov until 1938 at which time her father was annihilated by the Stalin regime. The family left Russia as refugees and arrived in Germany in the 1940s.
In 1950 Asja married Fred Radermacher, a law student at the University in Erlangen, Germany. Margrit their only child was born in 1951. Her family emigrated to Canada in 1952 and Asja, Fred and Margrit followed in 1962.
In Canada, Asja worked most of her life for the German Community Newspaper in accounting.
Asja was a beautiful woman who cherished her looks and health all of her life. She was blessed with good health until diabetes entered in 1992, a demon she battled with all of her strength and controlled it with amazing precision. Cancer struck the first time in 2003 and she attacked it with the same vigour.
She was a great admirer of the arts, loving ballet, music and opera. She enjoyed oil painting and loved painting Sunflowers, which she remembered from her native Russia. She was an amazing cook and did lovely knittings. One always knew where Asja and Fred lived as they had the most luscious and colourful gardens. Asja had a super green thumb and grew flowers, plants and vegetables. In the 1980s a gardening magazine took pictures of her huge pink roses that stood like soldiers in her front lawn garden.
Asja was a free spirit and called herself the original bohemian. Her explosive personality only matched her love of life. Travel safe Mami. Ya tyebya lyublyU.
The family wishes to thank Asja’s medical staff at Bowmanville Hospital 2nd floor, especially nurses Kim, Julia, Rachel and Dr. Chou. Thank you to all of her friends at Forestry Place.

An equally devoted organist and choir director, Jane-Anne’s magnificent spiritual contributions are assuredly ringing through the heavens now as they have in countless churches in the region for many decades.

Thank you to everyone who has provided strength, care and comfort through her difficult journey. The family invites all those whose lives have been touched by this extraordinary woman to join them in celebrating her life on this day. The song has ended…but the melody lingers on.

Rev Dr. Cerwyn Davies, the family’s lifelong minister, guide and cherished friend, will, in true Welsh fashion, lead an uplifting service filled with music, memories and love on Saturday the 25th of January, 2014 at St. Thomas’ Anglican Church, 101 Winchester Road East, Brooklin (Whitby) at 2:00pm. A reception will follow at the church; and Anne’s ashes will be scattered in her motherland, Wales, later this year.

Lee, Rev. Dr. Arthur Paterson

Peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa on
Tuesday December 17, 2013

Beloved husband of Heraldine. Cherished father of Eunice and Rosemary, and grateful father-in-law to Dr. Michael Lalli.

During WWII, Arthur served with the Royal Corps of Signals, and later graduated from Edinburgh University and New College. He entered the Baptist Ministry in 1954, and faithfully pastored congregations in Scotland, Canada and in the United States. Dedicated to the preaching of the Gospel, he was invited to many well known pulpits. His concern for the spiritual needs of individuals urged him to establish the Boston Christian Counseling Centre, and to offer a daily radio broadcast from the historic Tremont Temple located in the city centre. During his time in Canada, he had been an enthusiastic founding member of the Toronto Spiritual Life Convention and of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada. His passing leaves a rich spiritual heritage to family and friends.
Death, he used to say, is just being “absent from the body and present with the Lord.”

A Memorial Service will be held at Calvary Church, 746 Pape Avenue, Toronto on Saturday February 1st 2014 at 1pm. Interment will take place in the family plot located in Alexandria, Ontario. Arrangements entrusted to NORTHCUTT ELLIOTT FUNERAL HOME, 53 Division St. N. Bowmanville, Ontario.
