Dear Hart family, I am sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved mother. I remember her so well from my childhood when I would go to Hart's to buy clothes for special occasions. Your mom and dad were so sweet & would always make me feel so special. I loved going there. Later on I reconnected with them at the Cavendish Club when my parents moved onto the same floor as the, It was wonderful to see how active & engaged they were. They were special people and I hope knowing this softens the sadness you are feeling. Andrea Yampolsky

Dear Hart Family, Grade 5 at Logan School was a very special year for me because I was introduced to one of my favorite teachers! Mrs. Hart was a dedicated & competent teacher. She was also a well dressed, charming & warm individual. I wanted to be just like her when I grew up! Our paths crossed later in life, including at Hart's Children's Stores. I wish for you & yours continued good health, coupled with the hope that you may be spared from any more sorrow for many years to come. Warmly, Riva Cantor Gelber

Dear Hart family, Hearing the news about Mrs. Hart brought me & several other former classmates back in time to our 1950s Gr.5 Logan School classroom. She will be remembered for her love of teaching, beautiful smile, soft demeanour & habit of twirling her signature glasses. We shared in her happiness when she announced her pregnancy but felt sad saying goodbye to our favourite teacher. More recently, it was always a pleasure seeing each other at the Cummings Centre or Century Village. May fond family memories bring you solace.

Cheryl Hart - 23 days ago

Corrine and Cliff I was saddened to get Corrine’s email informing me of Auntie Dovena’s passing. Childhood memories of seeing her and Uncle Myer every Sunday at Bubbie Eva and Zaidie Dave Hart’s apartment turned into adult memories of many great Hartco trips together to the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and others fun destinations. Your mother's love of travel ensured their attendance at many of our family's important life milestones, like Sandy's daughter's wedding in Palm Springs, and Jeff's son's Bar Mitzvah in Israel, both pretty adventurous trips for people in their eighties! Once they stopped travelling to Toronto for Yom Kippur they both, and later just Auntie Dovena, had a permanent seat at my Yom Kippur table. Since Covid, I saw her less but we would call each other and she would proudly update me on her children and grandchildren and in turn, always ask with interest about my family. Into her 90’s her independence at the Waldorf allowed her to live her life with grace. She did things her way, walking to get her hair done once a week, telling me “of course” she still had her l’chayim every day , and I was awed by how she remained incredibly sharp and alert to almost the very end of a long life. She lived a full life. Baruch Dayan HaEmet. Cheryl Hart
