ANONEN, Hilkka Maia Reeta (nee Sorvari) - Peacefully at Trillium Health Centre on Friday, August 9, 2013 in her 86th year. A beloved wife and mother, Hilkka is survived by her husband Paul, her sons Paul Raymond (Nancy) of Toronto and David (Enza) of Brampton and grandchildren Matthew and Laura. She was also a second mother to her nieces and nephews and "Mummu Hilkka" to great-nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Lempi and Emil and her beloved sister Aura. Hilkka was born in Alajärvi, Finland and came to Canada at the age of nine. She worked as an executive assistant for PPG Canada for 27 years. But it was in retirement that she really came into her own, and her "equal opportunity" kitchen at the lake was filled with the laughter of all generations. A deeply kind person, Hilkka believed that all people were basically good. It was all about love for her and regardless of the sadness of life, she loved unconditionally. Friends may call at the TRULL "NORTH TORONTO" FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION CENTRE, 2704 Yonge St. (5 blocks south of Lawrence Ave.), on Tuesday from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday at the AGRICOLA LUTHERAN CHURCH (25 Old York Mills Rd.) at 1:00 p.m. Interment will take place at the Humphrey- Rosseau Union Cemetery on Thursday at 12 noon.
