MARIA STUBITS Although we know Maria, our Mom and Nana, is now joyfully enfolded into the waiting arms of God and reunited with Dad, it is with the greatest sense of loss and sadness that we announce the passing of Maria (Jandrisits) Stubits. Beloved wife for 50 years of the late Oskar Stubits; loving mother of Rose Mary, Helen (Simon), Oscar (Terry), Theresa (Kevin), Katherine and Carol (David). Cherished Nana of James, Julia, Amanda, Mark, Emma, Erin, Rachel and Matthew. Mom and Dad emigrated to Canada from Austria in 1955 and together built a life, a family and a home, first in Winnipeg, then Montreal and Mississauga. Mom had extensive family in Austria and celebrated her Austrian heritage but she was very proud to be Canadian. Mom always considered her life a blessing. Dad was the love of her life and we, as her children and grandchildren, grew up with her unconditional love, wisdom, generosity, grace, and sense of humour. Thanks Mom for always, always being there for us. You were our rock. Thank you for your legacy of faith in God, hard work, the importance of family, and laughter. God has you in His keeping, we have you in our hearts, forever. Say hi to Dad for us. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the doctors and nurses at Mississauga Trillium Hospital who took such wonderful care of Mom the last few days.

Donald Roy Hudson passed away at Lake of the Woods District Hospital on November 10th, 2015, with his family at his side. Don was born in Kenora on March 6th, 1925. He was predeceased by his parents, Cecil and Rose Hudson, his uncle, Robert Clark, and his nephew, Leonard Peterson. Don is survived by his wife of 67 years, Astrid, his children Carolyn, Bruce, Ken (Joyce), and his grandson, Patrick. Also surviving are Don's brother Tom (Irene), nieces Barbara Hudson Voigt (Will) and Sheila Crowe (Dorn), sister Kay Baletki (George), nephew Jim, aunt Millie Clark, niece Marilyn Zroback (Ed), and numerous great-nieces and nephews. As a young man, Don served as a communications sergeant and bugler for the 116th Medium Battery of the Kenora militia. During his last few months in hospital and at Pinecrest, he loved hearing the commands and music of the Trooping the Colour parade; he knew all of the words to the traditional bagpipe tunes. In his early working days, Don was an electrician in the Kenora area, and then was hired as a telegrapher with CP Rail. He underwent training to become a microwave technician with CN-CP Telecommunications and retired from there in 1986. Ham radio (VE3DZJ) was Don's passion, and his children have fond memories of going to sleep listening to the cadence of CQ 75. He was also a member of the Lake of the Woods Aeromodelers and an avid curler. Don's strong sense of community responsibility was evident during his years of service on the Bethesda Lutheran Church Council and the Kenora Public School Board. The family would like to thank Dr. Melanie Kowal and the third floor nurses; words are insufficient to describe the quality of care and compassion they provided. The funeral service will be held at First Baptist Church, 510 Second St. South, on Saturday, November 14th at 2 p.m. A private family interment will take place at a later date.12995370
