Wladyslawa Todorski (nee Gizinski), was called back to our Lord on Tuesday April 21, 2020 after a debilitating stroke.
Born June 18, 1932 in Lipniak, Poland. She was a simple farm girl who married a simple farm boy Jan Todorski in 1953. Together they had three amazing sons, John, Zenon and Christopher. After emigrating from Poland on the Stefan Batory in 1964, they built a loving and caring family on Fern Avenue. They were part of the Polish community of St Casimirs Catholic Parish. She was popular fixture within the community of Roncesvalles.
After the death of her husband Jan, Wladyslawa was unable to leave her beloved neighbourhood and church, so she moved into the Corpernicus Lodge Retirement Home on Roncesvalles. Where she was welcomed and loved by all the residents and staff. Always with a smile, a hello, and a candy for whomever she met on her daily walks.
Neighbours, friends, shopkeepers and family loved Wladyslawa. She never ran away from hard work or helping a friend in need. She had a heart of gold and a saw good in everyone. She had strong faith in God and was a regular at St Casimirs Church.
She was preceded in death by her husband Jan and son John.
She is survived by her sons: Zenon and his wife Cathy, Christopher and his wife Christine; as well as grandchildren Jesse, Ben, Sarah with husband Brent, Julia with husband Jeffrey, Daniel, and great grandson Emeryk.
