T.M.R. Mayor Vera Danyluk laid to rest

Vera Danyluk was laid to rest in a service attended by the city’s top political brass, uniformed police and army officers. But most of the roughly 600 in attendance were T.M.R. residents.

“She was a woman with a vision and she had a great heart,” said Frosini Costy, 79, a longtime T.M.R. resident. “I only met her a few times, but you could tell there was something special about her person. It was almost as if she had an aura around her.”

“She was a person of such integrity and passion,” said Heather Macleod, a T.M.R. resident in her 60s. “Her passing was such a sad loss.”

Danyluk died Oct. 14 at age 66 after a two-year battle with a rare disease.
