Condolences

Condolence From: Steve McMahon
Condolence: I don't remember all of my teachers but I remember Mrs. Zdriluk. She created a love of the German language which I held for many years. Great teacher! I'm sure we will missed by many. My sincere condolences.

Condolence From: Lisa Dafoe
Condolence: I'm so heart broke she was teacher at Cental and I was her Personal Trainer for many years. She was so kind and a great person and teacher. She will be missed greatly.

Condolence From: Lesley Thurgood Anderson
Condolence: Sad to hear of the passing of Mrs. Zdriluk. Whenever I reminisce about high school, she was a big part of my life there and I admired her dedication to the musicals and kids in the theatre. She didn't take any crap either and now that I've had 3 kids and I'm a grandmother, I can really appreciate all that she did for us at BCHS! I still remember the "Hot Box" tap dance routines and all of her direction to make it as perfect as possible so that we could all be proud! I will miss her. My condolences to her family and friends.

Condolence From: Joanne Churchill
Condolence: Helen you will be dearly missed.
You were such an amazing champion for children and the performing arts. Your impact will be felt for years to come as students will remember you as "that special teacher" who opened the door to the wonders of the theatre. As for me, your candid outlook and wonderful advice will be dearly missed. I will work diligently to ensure your last efforts partnering your students at Brock U with BPAC will have an ongoing and lasting legacy for students and teachers in the region. My sincere condolences are extended to your dear family.

Condolence From: Rick Mattka
Condolence: We all have one, more if we're lucky. At least in the arts it's almost always this way. A friend, a mother, a father, or perhaps a teacher. Someone who put you on the path. Someone who you can clearly say, without, you would not be who you are today.

Helen did this tirelessly, for so many. I can't begin to imagine how many lives she touched, but I do know how she touched mine.

I feel like a child today, clumsily trying to articulate what's in my heart. So, without much ado, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for everything.

Rest in peace Mrs Z. You will be forever missed.

Dear Gerry, Jen, Beth and Family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for sharing Helen with us all. She was a gift to this world, and will be forever missed.

Condolence From: Jane Homan
Condolence: As so many have said, Helen has touched so many people - directly and also far reaching. Sometimes the "thank you's" do not always come when they should, but hopefully teachers and mentors know they have made a difference in a child's life, as the contributions alone that Helen made as part of the "it takes a village to raise a child" was so very important!! Because of our grandchildren and the work - or shall I say "Fun" they did with Helen (and Gerry) at Centre Stage, those experiences helped to broaden and enrich their lives! Heartfelt "Thank you" from grateful grandparents! We will miss you, as so may will - to Gerry - you and your family are a very special group and we are sending you our deepest condolences. from Jane Homan & Kevin Silver

Condolence From: Colleen Silver
Condolence: Helen was an incredible woman that touched and shaped so many young lives. A mentor to Kailin over all of the years of performances, Rotary Festivals, RCM exams, NYC trips; Helen was a teacher, a leader , a guider and most of all a friend. All 3 of my girls have special memories of Helen and Gerry and the whole extended Zdriluk family. Memories that will be forever cherished. We are truly saddened by this loss and our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
