Sad news: Cancer claims Janos Starker’s daughtermain
The son of Gabriella Starker-Saxe has confirmed her death from cancer.
Gabriella was Janos Starker’s only child from his first marriage.
She lived in Toronto, had a career with the US State Department and worked with children with autism. At Starker’s 75th birthday, ‘she described a father who demanded the utmost precision and clarity in her words when speaking with him.’
Starker died in 2013.
A month ago, Gabriella posted: I usually keep my sharing to the happy stuff, whether it be joy with music or JP or travels. It’s hard to share the sadder side of things, but there comes a time when it’s impossible not to. I don’t want those I love to be in the dark about where I’m at and my cancer prognosis is not looking good… I’m being well taken care of and I love you all
