MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 9 /CNW/ - On November 8th, 2007, Cory Clack-Streef,
President of Faye Clack Communications Inc. passed away peacefully following a
valiant two-year battle with breast cancer. She was 46. Cory's first priority
was her commitment to her husband, children and family. She loved being a Mom
and was the first one to take charge when arrangements needed to be made for
birthdays, holiday celebrations and family reunions.
She was married to Albert Streef and was a partner in Streef Produce
Limited, was the past president of the OPMA (Ontario Produce Marketing
Association), was an honourary director of the OPMA and was honoured with
Produce Person of the Year in 2005.
"Cory knew and was intimately connected to every facet of the food
industry," said her sister and business partner, Virginia Clack-Zimm. "Whether
it was communicating with the trade or dealing with the complex network of
U.S. and Canadian government agencies or the media, her skill and experience
benefited each of our clients and their individual objectives. She cultivated
the agency's unique ability to effectively execute meaningful campaigns that
garnered results in a communications saturated marketplace, while still
inspiring our team."
"Cory had a really big heart. She took the initiative whenever she saw
the need, often before others recognized there was even a problem," continued
Clack-Zimm. "Her fundraising efforts for the victims of the flooding
post-Katrina were only one example of many such selfless undertakings. We will
all miss her immensely."
Cory will be dearly missed by her husband Albert Streef and daughters
Sadie, Fallon and Jillian, the entire Streef family, her mother Faye Clack and
Ewing Rae, her father Bill Clack and Pat Damm, brother Dr. Scott Clack and his
wife Kim, and her sister and business partner Virginia Clack-Zimm, Jim
Jenkinson and her children Lena and Erich Zimm and the entire Clack Clan.
Visitation will be held at J. Scott Early Funeral Home, 21 James Street,
Milton, Ontario, Wednesday November 14th, 2007, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
and 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
A celebration of Cory's life will be held at the Gambrel Barn, Country
Heritage Park in Milton, 1:00 p.m. on Thursday November 15th, 2007.
