It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved patriarch, Maier (Morris) Henoch on December 25, 2018.
At the age of 95, Maier, our father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed at Seven Oaks hospital surrounded by his family. Maier was predeceased by his parents, Rochelle and Gedalia, brothers, Yakov and Fishel and sister, Chana Rasal who all perished during the Holocaust, his beloved wife Sally of 47 years, and his dear daughter-in-law, Lynn Henoch.
Maier is survived by his son Morris Henoch, daughter Ruth and son-in-law Chuck Narvey. Maier was the adored grandfather of Jerrod (Mary) Henoch, Seth Henoch and Ardith Henoch; Jennifer (Ian) Dimerman, and Matthew (Mira) Narvey. Maier is also survived by his greatest accomplishment, his great grandchildren, whose company lit up his life. They are Simon, Paul, Sam, Jacob, Noah, Maia, Emunah and Matanelle. Maier is also survived by his sister in law, Miriam Feierstein, nephew Max Feierstein (Anne), and niece Michelle Feierstein (Larry).
Born in Glowno, Poland, our Zaida Maier and Baba Sally faced many hardships. First under Nazi rule, and then when they came to Canada with no possessions and not being able to speak a word of English. Those were tough times, but Sally and Maier both worked extremely hard and persevered. Zaida Maier had an incredible work ethic and took great pride in his business. He loved playing cards, watching wrestling, exercising at the Wellness Centre, attending Synagogue, and being with family for Shabbat dinners and holidays. Zaida’s love of life and his devotion to family lives on in all of us. May his memory always be a blessing.
The family wishes to thank Maier’s physicians Dr.’s Slutchuk, Rabson, Brodovsky, Sommer, Koulack and Silver who helped enhance the quality of our father’s life. The family also wishes to thank Maier’s caregivers, Manny, Marietta, Dina, Archie and Anastasia. Pallbearers were Matthew Narvey, Ian Dimerman, Jerrod Henoch, Seth Henoch, Max Feierstein, and Allan Finkleman.
If you wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sally and Maier Henoch Holocaust fund at the Jewish Foundation 204-477-7525
