Christina Doris Hryhoruk (nee Niewisiewicz), a resident of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, passed away at age 60 on Tuesday, April 28th at Toronto General Hospital. She did not have Covid, but did have liver failure. A graduate of the University of Guelph, she completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1980. She worked as a Law Clerk with experience in litigation, and more recently was employed by various downtown Toronto firms as a Legal Assistant. Survived by her sister Monika Shepherdson (Daniel), nieces Bonnie Dickson and Crystal Stephens (Sheldon). Due to the unprecedented world pandemic, in lieu of a traditional service, it would be appreciated to have any relatives and friends share some of their thoughts and memories of Chris here on her webpage.
A final poem that Chris wanted to share with those who cared for her:
“Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight, I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I do not die.”
