Toronto -- Medalist Dora de Pédery-Hunt, the sculptor who moulded the image of the Queen on Canadian coins and created the Canadian Centennial Medal and hundreds of other awards, died of colorectal cancer in the palliative care unit of St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on Sept. 29. She was 94.

Born Nov. 16, 1913, in Budapest, she trained as an artist and sculptor but fled her homeland with her family on Christmas Eve, 1944, just before the Soviet army marched into Hungary. She came to Canada in 1948 and was soon befriended and encouraged by sculptors Frances Loring and Florence Wyle. Her inaugural commission in Canada was the Canada Council Medal, the country's first arts medal. She is survived by a niece, two nephews, four great nieces and nephews and two great-great nieces. A private family funeral is planned, followed by a celebration of her life at a later date.
