BROUWER, George (1956 - 2020)

 

Port Perry Chapel

 

George Brouwer was received into the arms of his loving Father on July 27, 2020, surrounded by his family, after complications due to a tragic accident.  His last activities speak to what he loved most - farming and family. Taken too soon for those who loved him, George lived a full and thoughtful life. He worked hard and always had time for his family. 

 

George is lovingly remembered by his wife, Emma, five children, Leah (Marc), Alan (Nicole), David (Meagan), Steven (Kayti), and Emmalie, and seven grandchildren, Grace, Beau, Lauren, Summer, Walter, McKenna and Emma. Dear brother and brother-in-law of Rick, Albert, Trish (Barry), Diana (Rob), John (Janet), Jack (Carol), Ralph (deceased) (Jenny), Glen (Judy), and Liz (Gary). He is survived by his father, Ale, and mother-in-law, Corrie, and predeceased by his mother, “Atje (Ann)” and father-in-law, John. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and extended family. Family was always important to George and he will be deeply missed. 

 

We are heartbroken that, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will not be able to remember George’s life publicly with his friends and community. A private family funeral and interment have been entrusted to Hope Christian Reformed Church and the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, P.O. Box 698, Port Perry, Ontario L9L 1A6 (905-985-7331). If friends desire, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to World Renew.

TUCK, Iris Doreen (nee Cooper) 

Uxbridge Chapel

Was called home to be with her Lord on Monday, July 13, 2020, while surrounded by the love of her family. After 30 years she is now reunited with her patient soulmate and best friend, Chauncey Tuck and will be welcomed by her loved ones that went before her; her mother and father, Elizabeth and Jack Cooper; brothers Leonard, Sidney and John; sister Dorothy; sons Glenn (Susanne) and Byron (Karen); and granddaughter Teegan. 

Iris is survived by her children Kimberley (Anthony), Andrea (Larry), Patricia (Mike), Carol (predeceased Ron), Wendy (Tony) and Dale (predeceased Leny). She was the inspirational and tender-loving Nana to her grandchildren Brooke, Kyle, Lesley, Melanie, Brett, Kelly, Josh, Brittney, Cory, Cathy, Christine, Greg, Mark, Stephen, Tanya, Jason, Lawrence and Deborah; and numerous great-grandchildren.

Iris was born on March 20, 1929 in London, England. She began her nursing career in 1946 of which took her to various hospitals throughout England. After immigrating to Canada in 1955 she continued her nursing career at Muskoka Sanatorium where she met her then patient, Chauncey and his four children. The two were later married in 1956 and added four more children to their family.

Iris’ fondest memories include the many corn roasts they hosted at Tuck’s Turkey Ranch, attending church with family and walking around Israel knowing Jesus had walked and thought in the same places. She loved to knit, make porcelain dolls and ornaments, gardening, and baking – food was always abundant in her kitchen. She looked forward to her travels back home to England, her adventures through Corfu and her weekly ‘Winsome Widows’ outings. Iris’ primary focus throughout her adult life was her ever-expanding family and she was happiest when surrounded by the ones she loved the most. Her deep love, forever proper demeanour and ability to make everyone feel special just by being in the same room will be forever missed.

We wish to thank the caring staff at Douglas Crossing Retirement Community who so lovingly cared for ‘Nana’ and quickly became her second family, especially the staff on the second floor; and a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Dhar Doobay. Each caring individual contributed to the happiness of Iris’ extraordinary life.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, P.O. Box 388, Uxbridge, Ontario L9P 1M8 (905-852-3073). In lieu of flowers a donation can be made in memory of Iris to Covenant House Toronto or a local charity close to your heart.

HARRISON, Stella

Port Perry Chapel

Stella Anne Harrison, 86, of Port Perry Ontario passed away peacefully on the 24th of June 2020, with her family by her side.

Stella was born to the late Gordon (Sam) Leroy Tomlinson and Ruth Lorraine Davis (Church) on 17 January 1934 in Richmond Hill, Markham Township, Ontario. Stella was the oldest sister to Robert, Janet, Peter and Paul. Stella attended both Richmond Hill High School and Centennial College.

Stella was married to Joseph Thomas Harrison on 30 May 1953 in Toronto, Ontario.

After their marriage, they lived together in Toronto. Unfortunately, she was predeceased by her husband in 1975. Stella continued her life throughout the eastern Toronto and Port Perry/Backstock regions. Stella is survived by her children Steven (Diane), Cindy Sparks (Bob), Wendy Barnes (Tom), Joseph (Lynn) and Susan (Roger), 13 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.

Stella was an accomplished painter creating many portraits of family and friends as well as local landscapes of the Port Perry area. After her struggles with alcoholism Stella regained control of her life with a strong sense of will and determination. She then became a lead councillor for alcohol and drug addiction at the Renascent Treatment Center in Toronto thereby mentoring and guiding others to a better life. Stella received several medallions and accolades ultimately achieving 40 plus years of sobriety. This road of recovery gave her a new sense of life and allowed to concentrate on the thing that mattered most, her family.  Stella (our mom) was a gentle, elegant and graceful lady who cherished her new lease on life. She had an infectious presence about her that made you want to be a part of her in every way. Stella welcomed the embrace of her large family, loved working in the garden, reading, and listening to the family stories.

She was often heard to say, “Each day is a page of life, turn it with care”.

We would like to thank the staff at the Port Perry Place for the love and devotion they showed our mom while she was a resident there. We would also like to acknowledge and thank the medical / support staff at the Port Perry Hospital for their care, compassion and understanding during the day of mom’s passing.

In light of the current situation Stella will be cremated and buried with her late husband at a later date with immediate family in attendance. Arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home 1763 Reach Street, P.O. Box 698, Port Perry, Ontario L9L 1A6. The family requests that donations be made in support of the War Amps, in lieu of sending flowers.

WALTERS, E. Raymond (1927-2020)

Port Perry Chapel

E. Raymond Walters died peacefully at his home in Port Perry on June 23, 2020, in his 94th year. He was born in his grandfather’s house on Main Street South in Uxbridge on February 26, 1927. Between these two bookend events 16 km apart, spanned a remarkable life as full and rich as they come.

Ray was a talented artist and businessman who was happiest outdoors camping, painting, downhill skiing, flying, fishing and playing golf.  He belonged to a cohort of commercial artists, lithographers and printers in Toronto who, inspired by the Group of Seven a generation earlier, escaped the city every year to sketch and paint rural Ontario. He also loved to play the piano, especially the music of ragtime and Scott Joplin. He was a member of the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association for more than 60 years and a life member of the Toronto Arts & Letters Club, attending his last Boar’s Head Dinner there in December 2018 when he was 91.

Ray was the son of Lloyd Walters and Mary Stephen, both of Uxbridge. After the family moved to Toronto, Ray spent his boyhood summers in Uxbridge working at the harness shop on Brock Street owned by his grandfather Albert A. Walters. The store was a gathering place for all the farmers in the area who could buy, exchange or barter anything from Albert, a true packrat. One summer Albert even “sold” Ray off to a local farmer to earn his keep and by age 13 Ray was working regularly on area farms during the summer and hay time. To keep up with the times, the harness shop also became the local Imperial Oil dealer and Ray recalled pumping gas from a bowser outside the store to the rare doctor in the area who had a car.

Ray learned at the harness shop never to throw anything away and he never did.

Always artistic, Ray painted two murals which won prizes in the Toronto Exhibition, prompting his teacher to suggest he go to art school. His parents didn’t approve, saying he would only end up selling pencils on Yonge Street. He studied art at Northern Vocational School (now Northern Secondary) under artists Larry Panton and Leonard Brooks and went on to a long career in commercial art as co-founder and president of Art and Design Studios (ADS) Ltd. on Merton Street in Toronto, retiring in 1995. He also owned the Merton Gallery and ADS Film Productions.

During the Second World War, Ray had wanted to join the air force but was too young. So he took a pilot training program offered by the government instead and learned how to fly. His float plane was the preferred mode of transportation to the cottage near Minden, a rustic cabin on Redstone Lake in Haliburton,  and his fishing camp on Pody Lake near Hearst.  When his family went to church on Sundays, Ray went flying instead. “I feel closer to God that way,” he reassured them. If reincarnation existed, he once mused he would like to come back as a loon so that he could fly and fish all day long.

Ray was predeceased in 2018 by Lois, his beloved wife of nearly 66 years, and his brother Jim in 2012. He leaves behind sons Kevin, Cameron (Janice) and Christopher (Randy), and his grandson Peter (Jessica), as well a garage full of things he never threw away. Ray will also be missed by nieces and nephews and a wide circle of friends, neighbours and fellow artists. Thanks to the compassionate care providers who helped make Ray’s last days at home as comfortable as possible.

Interment to take place at Ingoldsby Pioneer Cemetery at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, P.O. Box 698, Port Perry, Ontario L9L 1A6 (905-985-7331). Charitable donations are welcome in Ray’s memory to the Arts & Letters Club of Toronto Foundation to assist youth in the arts. Leave a Condolence

MUUS, Benjamin Joseph
September 6, 1992 – June 12, 2020

Uxbridge Chapel

It is with a tumult of emotions which defy description that we announce the passing of our intensely loved middle child & son, Benjamin Joseph Muus. 

He came to earth with a kind, compassionate, helpful spirit, a strong and agile body, and a brilliant mind.  As little more than a toddler he could perform stunts rivalling that of a monkey – the year of his birth.  In high school he won an award for reciting the most Pi digits by memory; after more than 200 numbers he had to be stopped because he could have kept going perhaps infinitely.  In his University of Guelph studies for his Computer Science degree, it was not unheard of for him to receive perfect marks in subjects such as Programming and also Astronomy.  He had at one time considered pursuing AI (Artificial Intelligence) and had a great knack and understanding of computer security.

He did however, struggle with the social aspects of communication throughout his life.  Those few friends he had earlier in life were privileged to come to know a humble, reliable, deep thinker with a gentle unassuming smile and a ready disposition for some good clean adventure.  If he suddenly disappeared while outside with him, you might look up to see him high in the top of a tree which he had silently escaped to! 

He loved his family, and had a great knack for taking things apart and seeing how it needed fixing.  He loved seadooing and it produced some of his biggest smiles! 

Towards the end of his life, however, he had a great struggle with inner demons from an unseen world, and with it, the loss of his faith and belief in a loving God.  We have received witness that this as well as his mortal communication impediments were lifted when he passed through the veil. 

Benjamin will be laid to rest in Uxbridge near his beloved Opa (2016) and Oma (2017). 

Our hearts will never fully heal in this life from the trauma of losing him to his battle with depression and PTSD.  It is indeed a complex and complicated type of grief, and for those of us left behind, the most utterly devastating thing to go through.  We thank all for the love, support and prayers for our family’s healing, strength, and peace. 

He leaves behind his father Benny, mother Lisa, siblings Matthew (Jessica), Stephanie (Alex), Casey (who now prefers ‘Chase’), and William; his maternal grandparents Wayne and Claudette Maxwell; his nieces Rose and Candice; uncles and aunts: Steve & Mary, Sue & Jeff, Teresa & Rob, Tim & Anna; cousins and friends. 

We love you so much Benjamin and will long for a reunion with you until our time comes. 

Due to Covid-19 and limits on the number of mourners who can be present, attendance will be limited to closest family members.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Box 388, Uxbridge, Ontario L9P 1M8 (905-852-3073). 

Leave a memory and/or condolence.

VOSS, Rodney
October 2, 1949 - June 8, 2020

Uxbridge Chapel 

Went to be home with his Lord after a full life marked by love, purpose and adventure.  Beloved husband of Aleta for 44 years, father to James, Jon (Karen), Charis (Aaron), Sarah (Byron), and Benjamin (Brooke).  Inspirational and fun-loving Opa to Jobe, Grace, Mary, Ruby, Oliver, Amber, Taylor and Leah.

Rod grew up in Winnipeg with parents Jim and Nanie, and brother Richard.  At the age of 23 he began a teaching career that spanned 40+ years.  He is remembered by students as a tough but fair and compassionate mentor, who taught with grace and humour.  Rod loved the outdoors and logged more than 40,000 miles crossing Canada by canoe, snowshoe and dogsled, leading school groups and family trips.

After retiring from Holy Trinity School in 2012, Rod continued to volunteer teach, participate in mission trips to Africa and Ontario's far north, organize teams to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, and pour boundless energy into Africycle.  He helped coach youth baseball, took up taekwondo with the grandchildren, and began the Uxbridge Pickleball Club.  He was a friend and helper to many, including several Syrian refugee families.  A man of action, a communicator and organizer, Rod displayed Christ's love to all of us who knew him.

Sadly, the cancer Rod fought so valiantly and diligently for nine years eventually took him away from us.  We wish to thank the staff at Sunnybrook Hospital, especially Dr. Emmenegger, for their excellent care, as well as Rod's primary and palliative care physician, Dr. Wu.  We are grateful to family, ex-students and colleagues, and many friends for your prayers and encouragement along the way.

A service of remembrance will be held at a future date.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, PO Box 388, Uxbridge L9P 1M8 (905-852-3073).  In lieu of flowers, a donation could be made to one of the organizations close to Rod's heart . . .  Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Africycle, or Uxbridge Baptist Church's Heart to Heart mission

Kathryn (Fallis) Balmer
February 25, 1925 - May 25, 2020

Uxbridge Chapel

On Monday, May 25, 2020, Kathryn Balmer (always known as Kathryn, Nana and Auntie Kay to family, and as Kay to friends), loving mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend passed away at home near Uxbridge, ON at the age of 95.  She will be greatly missed. 

Kathryn was born on February 25, 1925 in Shelbourne, ON to Leslie and Marion Fallis.  She lived in London, ON, attending Western University before moving to Toronto with her family where she attended University of Toronto, graduating in Chemistry in 1948. 

On May 22, 1948, she married Allan Balmer, who she met at UofT.  They raised two daughters, Ann and Tricia, and one son, Michael.  In moves related to further education and work opportunities, Kathryn and Allan lived in several places over the years including Toronto, Scotland, Ohio, and New York State. 

Kathryn obtained an MSc in Chemistry while in Ohio and initially worked in research.  After discovering that she loved to work with students, she taught high school chemistry for 22 years in Pittsford, NY (near Rochester) where she also served as Science Department head for several years and co-authored an updated Chemistry textbook.  She later worked in the science department at the Royal Military College in Kingston, ON. 

Upon retirement, Kathryn and Allan returned to Ontario, settling in Seeleys Bay on the Rideau River north of Kingston, moving to the Uxbridge area in 2008.  While in Seeleys Bay, they lived through the 1998 ice storm, opting to stay at home to keep water pipes from freezing.  They said they survived the long hours with no electricity by playing backgammon by candlelight.  Later that summer they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. 

Kathryn’s interest in community led her to participate and help willingly where she could, often taking on leadership roles.  She enjoyed the community of the Seniors Club in Seeleys Bay and the United Church there and in Greenbank near Uxbridge. 

Kathryn liked learning new things and among other things, enjoyed quilting, birding, folk art, reading and camping.  She was an avid Blue Jays fan and enjoyed following curling.  She was a wonderful mother, always ready to do something interesting with her children and grandchildren. 

Kathryn was preceded in death by her husband, Allan, son, Michael, and her two brothers, Bob and Jim.  She is survived by daughters Ann (John) and Tricia, grandchildren Tanya (Erik), Heather (Kerry), Myrna, Meaghan (Jake) and Allan, and several nieces, nephews and great-grandchildren.

CHOMIAK, Warren Michael

Uxbridge Chapel

It is with broken hearts that the Chomiak family announce Warren’s very sudden passing at home in Goodwood, Ontario on Monday, May 25, 2020 at the age of 50. Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Warren was the beloved husband of Kelly (nee Rudolph) for almost 16 years. Loving father of Sidney and Cole. Cherished son of Bev and Bill Chomiak and son in law of Howard and Diana Rudolph. Dear brother of Carmen Moore and Shivaun Chomiak (predeceased), brother in law of Chris Moore and Paul and Laura Rudolph. Lovingly remembered by his nieces Jamie and Taylor Rudolph, nephews Liam Moore, Benjamin and Jeremy Rudolph, many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Warren was the most romantic and generous husband with a huge personality.  Kelly had a dream after their first date that she would marry him. Walking down the aisle on August 14, 2004 was like déjà vu. Warren was the kind of Dad who would take his daughter to see the Trolls movie at the cinema ten times, stay right until the end to dance in the aisle and make the other kids jealous because their Dad’s didn’t do that. He watched Fubar recently and kept asking the kids if they were “givin’er”. Hearing Sidney on the phone with him, whining in exasperation, “Daaaadd! I don’t wanna give’r!” made Kelly laugh so hard. He loved when Cole came into their bed and if Warren woke up before him, he would watch Cole sleep. Sometimes, he would wake him early by tickling his feet because he couldn’t resist touching him. He covered his office in images of his Sidney bean because it made him feel good to see her sweet face all day. He will be forever remembered by family and friends for his sense of humour, extreme generosity, larger than life personality, and for being one of the best story tellers there is.

A private family service will be held with arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, P.O. Box 388, Uxbridge, Ontario L9P 1M8 (905-852-3073). A public celebration of Warren’s life will be held at a later date, once covid restrictions have eased.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Warren’s memory may be made to the MS Society of Canada or a local charity of your choice.

WEINSHEIMER, Harry

Uxbridge Chapel

It is with the greatest of sadness that I share with you the passing of my wonderful brother Harry Weinsheimer who passed away on May 21, 2020 at the age of 68.  Harry grew up in the Courtice area as a happy, gentle, and free-spirited child. Since the age of 18, Harry struggled with his own personal demons that revealed their presence through his years of struggling with mental illness. Despite this, all who knew Harry well, were touched by his humour, his loving spirit and at times, his extremely feisty demeanour. Even though he struggled his entire adult life with his illness, Harry’s life had great purpose and meaning to all those who knew him well. Harry could make you laugh in the most unexpected and refreshing ways and he would often say or do things that would reveal the innocent child that still lived within him.

Although my beautiful brother Harry no longer walks amongst us here on earth, his memory will be treasured by all the people who knew him. Harry spent all of his adult life in various mental health facilities and I am so grateful that he spent his last years surrounded by the loving care of the staff at Reachview Village Long-term Care in Uxbridge. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart  to all the staff at Reachview Village who took such good care of Harry throughout the years. Not only did they take care of his physical needs, they understood and respected him for who he was as a person far beyond his mental illness. Each and everyone of the nurses, the personal service workers, Dr. Batton, the management team, the cleaners, the recreational staff and cooks at Reachview Village are my heroes who showed their true colours during Harry’s recent battle with Covid-19.  Words cannot express how much I appreciate and respect the work they are doing during these unprecedented times.  

Harry leaves behind many family and friends including both his parents, a brother and many cousins that he grew up with and knew him before his demons arrived.

I love you Harry with all my heart
And even though we are now apart
And even though you were my good friend
I could not be with you in the end
You know I would have been holding your hand
Instead I held your heart in the palm of my hand.
Loving you always,
Your sister Judy
~
That special man
I smiled today but in such a different way
Not from something you said or something you did
But because I knew, you are no longer sad.

I watched you float from earth to sky
From my backyard, as you waved goodbye. 

How I laughed and danced with joy
To see again, that amazing boy.
For so many years you could not escape
The prison walls that sealed your fate.

But today, on this so special day
In the place that held you, you found the key.
And with your hand so tired and fragile
You opened the door, and just walked away.

I thank you Harry for being my friend
Now go and play and grow up to be 
That special man.

Brian

A Sunset Celebration of Life in honour of Harry will take place on Beau Soleil Island in Georgian Bay this coming August.Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Box 388, Uxbridge, Ontario L9P 1M8 (905-852-3073).  If desired, memorial donations to the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario, would be appreciated by the family.

MacFarlane (nee Meredith) Patricia

Port Perry Chapel

At Toronto Western Hospital, Tuesday, May 19, due to COVID-19 pneumonia, at the age of 86. A gentle woman of remarkable intuition, grace, articulation and humour, she helped many in her life, including as a licensed practical nurse in the forensic unit of the former Queen Street Mental Health Centre.

Born in 1933 in Bracebridge, she was orphaned at age 3. She and her older brothers, Howard, Harold and Calvin, were separated and placed in foster homes before being reunited shortly before her brothers’ enlistment during the Second World War. She had three children with her first husband, Keith Campbell, before divorcing. Their eldest child, Paula, required lifelong, specialized care and Patricia advocated fiercely on her behalf. She ensured the Ontario government provided medical services for Paula and others in what would be the first group home in Ontario following the decentralization of institutions in the early 1990s. Paula was much loved by Patricia’s second husband, William MacFarlane, until his death in 1979.

Patricia’s passions included travel, figure skating under the tutelage of Dutch national champion Ellen Burka, painting, interior design and acting in community theatre (earning the nickname ‘Muzzy/Muz’ from her children as she often imitated a role played by Carol Channing). She had a lifelong curiosity for learning, which included a Ryerson seniors’ course about spies. She read about, and practised, living a healthy life for which others often sought her counsel. She was appreciated for how intently she listened to people and offered such positive support. Frequent were the comments on what a beautiful woman she was, both inside and out.

Patricia is predeceased by her parents, former husband Keith, second husband Bill, her brothers, and daughter, Paula (2013). Words cannot describe how much she will be missed by her loving partner, protector and friend of 40 years, Carlos Jorge of Toronto, son Craig Campbell (Barbara) of Waterloo, and daughter Dale Campbell-Weissinger (Reinhard) of Switzerland. She was the dear Nana of Kevin (Mandy), Tess (Matt), and Deepak. She will be missed by relatives Wilda Robinson and Deb Tatham and their families, Joan and Randy Norris and Bob and Judy Aggerholm, who all kept in touch regularly. Patricia had longtime, loyal friends, including those at the Loyola Arrupe Seniors Residence where she lived, next to High Park. It does indeed take a village and we wish to thank good friends Noralyn Ogalino of the Lunch Box Café, Steven Son and Olivia Kang of the corner convenience store and all her wonderful PSWs. Their kindnesses helped our mom to remain happily in her own home. We especially thank the staff at Toronto Western Hospital for their compassionate care of our spiritual angel.

Cremation has taken place with a celebration of Patricia’s life to be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, P.O. Box 698, Port Perry, Ontario L9L 1A6 (905-985-7331). Offering support to a person or group you see in need would be a welcome tribute.

YOUMANS, Bryan George

Port Perry Chapel

With sadness we say goodbye to Bryan at the age of 70.  He never gave up during the last 10 years while living with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).  Over a year ago he moved into Reachview Village in Uxbridge where he made many friends and received wonderful care.   

During his retirement years he enjoyed puttering around his home and cottage, golfing in the summer, maintaining his lawn, and meeting his longtime friends for breakfast or lunch.   He was a BBQ master and his chilli recipe will always be famous in our family.   He had a love for classic cars and trucks and he was able to assist his son Matt in restoring a 1948 Ford pickup truck.  He looked forward to family gatherings where he could watch his grandchildren play and enjoy a great meal.  He would always dress appropriately for all occasions by wearing his latest addition to his plaid shirt collection.  Even though he battled a debilitating disease, he always remained calm, kind and positive to the end.    

Bryan is missed by his wife Marilyn, daughter Meredith and her husband Graham, son Adam and his wife Angela.  He treasured his daughter in law Sarah (wife of his late son Matthew who passed away in 2018).  Grandpa cherished his grandchildren Oliver, Madeline, Archer and Greta.  

His brother Doug and wife Doris have been by his side and he will be missed by his sister in law Marilyn (wife of his late brother Barry).  He is predeceased by his sister Millicent.  

Bryan will be honoured by a private family memorial.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, Box 698, Port Perry, Ontario L9L 1A6 (905-985-7331).  A donation to the Oak Ridges Hospice of Durham would be appreciated.

FRISK, William Alexander "Alec"

Uxbridge Chapel

William Alexander Frisk "Alec" of Uxbridge Ontario, born June 30th, 1940 in Toronto Ontario, passed peacefully on May 11th 2020 at the age of 79. Alec was the beloved son of Alexina Frisk nee Spence (born on the Isle of Orkney, Scotland) and Jacob Frisk (born in Stockholm Sweden), and dear brother of Jack Frisk of Gravenhurst ON. He is survived by his daughters Tina Catherwood (Gerry), Carrie Frisk and Beth Frisk. 

Alec was a funny, smart, hardworking and loving man. He was a pilot, a Rover and a hunter. He was a dreamer and an entrepreneur, owning several businesses over the years. His charm and wit were second only to his integrity. For our Dad, a handshake wasn’t just a gesture but a promise, and he made sure we knew the value of it. Dad was a huge nature lover, and for this reason, he insisted on raising his daughters on a 50 acre property in Sandford ON, surrounded by various animals, a sort of idyllic hobby farm. Dad loved gadgets and technology; we had a microwave the day after it was invented, we had the fanciest stereo he could get his hands on, and grew up listening to the voices of John Denver, Kenny Rogers and Gordon Lightfoot. He was a dedicated father who immersed himself in our worlds to ensure we had a wonderful childhood. He lived to make us happy.

Dad was a loving grandfather who’s face lit up every time he set eyes on his grandsons Jake and Lucas Catherwood, Greyson and Hudson Pelletier and his beautiful granddaughter Evayne Pelletier. Dad will be dearly missed by his family and his friends, especially his long time buddy Ken Nicolle, as well as many caregivers at ReachView Village. We will love you forever.  

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Box 388, Uxbridge, Ontario (905-852-3073).

SMITH, George Junner

Uxbridge Chapel

It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of George Junner Smith, a dearly loved husband, dad and grandpa. 

Our hearts are broken and life as we know it will never be the same.

Born in Scotland in 1940, George married his childhood sweetheart Anne and moved to England to work for ICI as an Industrial Chemist.  Upon his retirement from ICI - it was commented that in his entire 30 years with the company he had never taken one sick day - a true testament to his character of loyalty, hard work and integrity.

George retired at 50 and he and Anne moved to Canada to be with their daughters, Yvonne and Liz.  Blessed with amazing parents, Yvonne and Liz were ecstatic to have them living in Canada.  Our dad was a true blessing in our lives, who provided loving guidance and support always. 

Through Dad's passion for golf and curling he made some truly remarkable friendships that he held dear to his heart.

A doting grandpa to Alex and Olivia.  He seemed to think they could do no wrong.  Never missing one of their baseball games, he thoroughly enjoyed and participated actively with them. Taking Alex snowboarding, sitting for hours on end just in awe watching him fly down the slopes.  When Olivia decided to take up painting and music, every piece she produced was a masterpiece according to Grandpa. 

There is a huge void in our lives. Sadly missed by his wife Anne, daughters Yvonne and Liz, son-in-law John, grandchildren Alex and Olivia and sister Helen and family in Scotland.

Dad loved his Tim Horton's coffee.  In honor of our dad, we would ask the next time you enjoy yours, please raise your cup and send a prayer heavenwards to George.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date and all will be welcome. Arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, P.O. Box 388, Uxbridge, Ontario L9P 1M8 (905-852-3073).  Donations in memory of George can be sent to the Heart and Stroke Foundation with much gratitude. 

"Forever in our hearts - Good Night, God Bless."

Marie Dawn Collyer (nee Atkins)
June 26, 1938 – May 10, 2020

Uxbridge Chapel

On May 10th (Mother’s Day), we lost our beloved Marie, Mom, Mimi who passed peacefully at home. Kind, practical, empathetic, and unfailingly positive, Marie was the embodiment of grace. She had a great generosity of spirit that never missed an opportunity to express her gratitude right to her final days, baking gifts of cookies for every neighbour, doctor and friend. Marie loved flowers in her garden and in her home just as much as she loved watching birds and caring for pets - hers, her neighbours and her family’s. There weren’t any visitors to her house sacred enough not to be interrupted by Marie rallying everyone to watch a cardinal or laugh at a rascally squirrel. Marie was a lifelong VON nurse (graduate of Hamilton General Hospital, 1959) and both personally and professionally, a caregiver of exceptional quality.  Extraordinary chef, consummate hostess, passionate tennis player and later, avid aqua fit devotee.  

Loving, supportive wife to Gerry for close to 59 years, Marie, with Gerry, forged strong friendships from coast to coast through their Canadian Tire dealer network. In every place she lived, Marie built cherished friendships that lasted a lifetime: in Toronto, St. Catharines, Brandon, Whitby, Uxbridge and over winter holidays at Cedar Grove Lodge.

Family was everything to Marie. Mother to Julie Thompson (Dan) and Cam (Lauren Baker) and doting grandmother to Kaitlin, Megan, Samuel and Henry. Daughter of Samuel John Atkins and Laura Dorothy Atkins (nee Ludford) and sister to Lois Breton. Marie grew up in Ancaster closely connected with the large, tight-knit, fun-loving Ludford clan on her mother’s side. Once married, she enthusiastically embraced the Collyer clan and her infectious laugh at family gatherings was only matched by her late sister-in-law’s, Jane. 

We’d like to thank Dr. Cal Doobay, Dr. Luk, Dr. Ra and all the wonderful nurses. The level of care was exemplary.

The pandemic has created uncertainty around an in-person memorial so the family would love to hear from Marie’s friends. Please leave messages and a way to reach you at lowandlow.ca.  While Marie loved flowers, if you are so inclined, in lieu, we encourage a donation to your local animal shelter or the Canadian Cancer Society. 

Marie’s bright light will continue to shine in all who have known her.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Box 388, Uxbridge, Ontario (905-852-3073).  

Leave a Condolence.

GAETZ, Jerrold Stafford

Ottawa, April 14, 1936 – Uxbridge, April 30, 2020

Uxbridge Chapel 

Born in Ottawa, he grew up in Creighton Mine and Copper Cliff, Ontario and graduated from the University of Western Ontario.  He was soon employed at Ontario Hydro in North Bay and then in Toronto.  He married Lynne Johnson, on August 2, 1966.  They lived in Toronto raising three children: Fraser (Shannon; children Lily and Nick); Andrew; and Christy (Scott; children Katie, Ben and Emily).  In 1998 they took over the family ‘farm’ (Coolwood) on Durham Road 30 and became involved in many activities in Uxbridge. 

Jerry had his downhill ski group, the Silver Ducks; he belonged to the Uxbridge Pipe Band and was a member of the Loyal and Ancient Order of the Unicorns which met weekly for lunch in Toronto.  Two other Uxbridge groups of which he was a member were the ‘Magnificents’ and the ‘Gang’.  Together with his brother-in-law, Bill Cole, ‘Scotch Friday’ meetings and regular Monday lunches became traditional events.

From a very young age Jerry was always building or fixing things.  When he realized he couldn’t do it any longer he and Lynne moved into Uxbridge. 

Jerry is survived by his younger, loving sister Elinor.  He was predeceased by younger brother Peter and older brother Michael. 

Jerry succumbed to a long fight with cancer.  He will be remembered with love by family and friends. 

Sincere thanks for all the care given to Jerry at Douglas Crossing and to the medical personnel who were of assistance.  Donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital, Loaves and Fishes Food Bank or the North House would be appreciated. 

Cremation has taken place.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, P.O. Box 388, Uxbridge, Ontario L9P 1M8.  A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

NIXON, Jane (Jean) Swindell (nee Bradshaw) 

August 20, 1934 – May 2, 2020

Uxbridge Chapel

With heavy hearts but also joyous souls we announce that Jane (Jean) Nixon ascended into heaven to be with her Lord after a long and tiring battle with Dementia.

Jane, known to her family and friends as Jean, led a wonderfully full life!  What a fun lady to have as a Mum and a friend; quick-witted, a prankster, not so great a singer, known best for her big beautiful smile, a friend to all, ballroom dancer, neighborhood tennis semi-pro and someone who could make you feel like you are the most important person in the room; she was an excellent example to us all. 

Jean lived through WW2, immigrated to Canada…twice, loved her homeland Scotland but stayed in Canada because her children, Jane (Mark) Irwin, Jackie (Larry) Rodgers and John (Kerrie) Nixon, were her life and whom she loved fiercely.  Her 12 grandchildren, Calvin (Brie), Brent (Heather), Ginnie, Shane (Stephanie), Meghann (Jarrad) Irwin; Travis, Braydon (Tara), Hope Rodgers; Jamie, Christi Chute, Cadence, Judah Nixon brought her absolute joy along with her 8 great-grandchildren.

In 1956, Jean married John Nixon and loved him still, 30 years past his death.  Losing the love of her life at 55 didn’t stop her from living life to the fullest and she travelled the world making friends and memories along the way. She enjoyed teaching ballroom and line dancing to seniors, was an active member of her church, loved playing golf and Rummikub with her friends but most of all loved spending time with her family.  She was the first to volunteer to help a person in need, the first to go toe to toe for a cause she believed in, and the first greet a stranger with a big smile and a hello.  She was the first to love and gained so much back by doing so.

Jean is survived by her brother, Matthew Bradshaw and sister Marion Ross, and Bob & Jean Nixon and Janetta McKinven.

She was completely generous to all with her time, talent and knowledge and was a great (but strict) coach of golf, tennis, dance and life in general.  Many life lessons have been shared to those willing to sit and have a Kit Kat with her.  She was feisty (just ask the staff at Reachview Village!) but fun, full of life, and always tried to make others smile - even when she was hurting.  She was a true and graceful lady in every sense of the word.

Jean/Mum/Grannie will be missed by oh so many, but we take comfort knowing that she is now with her loved ones that have gone on before, is with her Lord, and is waltzing through the clouds with the love of her life.

Private arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, P.O. Box 388, Uxbridge Ontario, L9P 1M8 (905-852-3073). In lieu of flowers, donations to either Sick Kids or Children’s Wish would be greatly appreciated as she herself believed in and supported these charities.

A special thank you to the wonderful staff at Reachview Village who made her last few and most difficult years full of laughs and love. Leave a Condolence

His immense generosity and fierce loyalty gained Adam more meaningful experiences and deep friendships than most people can hope for in two lifetimes. Adam's friends, family and extended Baseball family were always closest to his big heart, and central to everything he pursued. Whether it's an all-encompassing "bear hug", a bellowing laugh, a fiery yell to second base, a word of advice, or a helping hand, happy memories of Adam will be close in our hearts. We can take comfort knowing his deep emotional impact will continue to positively influence all who had the good fortune to know and be close to him.

To all who loved him---HOLD FAST

Due to covid-19 restrictions, a private service has taken place with arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, P.O.

UNDERWOOD, Daniel “Dan, Danny, Gotch, Taz”

Uxbridge Chapel

It is with broken hearts that we share the passing of Dan.  On April 28, 2020 we lost our hero.  Dan was a fiercely loved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend.

To say he was a fearless warrior and fighter would be an understatement. Dan faced the challenges in his life head on, with an upbeat attitude and he never stopped.  He never stopped working, he never stopped fighting and most importantly he never stopped loving.

Among the many things he loved were his gardens, woodworking, drumming, fishing and most importantly his family.  There is/was nothing that he would not do for us. 

Dan was the soulmate to his wife Debbie (nee Couper) for more than 28 years and his passing has left an unfillable void in her heart.  He shared his strengths and passions with his sons, Couper (20) and Connor (17) leaving them with irreplaceable memories and he will be missed more than words can express.   A devoted son to Marie Wise-Collins to the very end; they shared an unbreakable and special bond for 53 years.  Precious son to George Collins and much more than a son-in-law to Jim and Olive Couper. Son to Ivan and Pat Underwood.  Amazing brother to Gerry Underwood, Karren and George Collins. Beloved brother-in-law to Linda McKenna and Sheila Gallant and loved uncle to Sydney, Samantha, Hannah, Daniel, Kennedy, Zachary, Owen, Addison, Isabella, Curtis and Katie

Heartfelt thanks to all medical staff who made Dan’s treatments feel more like family visits.  Dr. Pandes, Heather, Christina, Imee and Lidia (Oak Ridges), Dr. Babak and nurse Deb (MSH), Dr.’s Singh and Myrehaug (Sunnybrook) and Dr. Cho (Southlake). Dan knew you pulled out all stops in his treatment and was always so thankful for your efforts.

In lieu of flowers, Dan has requested that donations be made in his name to Lions Camp Dorset (a special camp that allowed Dan to vacation with his family and receive dialysis treatment).

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Uxbridge, Ontario (905-852-3073).

IRVING, Richard Dennis

Uxbridge Chapel

Our family lost the most incredible man. Richard Dennis Irving, affectionately known as Rick or Ricky, passed away peacefully on March 27th, surrounded by the love of his family. He was 64 years young.

Rick was a loving son, born on March 2, 1956 to Robert and Olga Irving (nee Badiuk). He is predeceased by his mother and will be sorely missed by his father. Rick spent 39 wonderful years with the love of his life Wendy (nee  Dingman).  He was a loving father to Jason Doble (Diane Rice) and Jennifer (James Chant). Rick was a caring sibling to his late brother Robbie and his baby sister Charlene. He will be missed by his brothers-in-law Paul Gerrard and Shawn Dingman (Debbie). Rick was a doting uncle to PJ, Kaitlyn and Kristen Gerrard, and Shawna Dingman. Rick was a beloved nephew and cousin to many and maintained a close connection to his extended family. Above all, Rick’s most poignant role was that of Papa. To say he loved his grandsons Tyler and Hunter Doble and Ethan and Benjamin Chant is a massive understatement.

Rick was a dedicated employee of CN Rail for 35 years and maintained lifelong friendships with his coworkers. In retirement Rick was a crossing guard for the Township of Uxbridge. He also shared his passion for the railway and his community by volunteering with the York-Durham Heritage Railway.

Aside from being a proud family man, he was especially proud of his father’s service in the Royal Canadian Navy and his Mother’s Ukrainian heritage. He will be missed for his vast knowledge that gained him the affectionate nickname of “Rickopedia” amongst his family and friends. His love for his family will be felt always and his boisterous laugh will be heard forever by those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

A celebration of life will be held for Rick at a later date. In honour of our beloved Ricky, please consider a donation to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital. He often credited that hospital to saving his life and always had great respect for the health care professionals who work there.   Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge (905-852-3073).  Leave a Condolence.

POWELL, Anne (née Sutherland)

Uxbridge Chapel

1939 - 2020

With sad hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Anne Powell of Leaskdale on March 28, 2020 at the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital.

Anne will be remembered for her twinkling sense of humour and hearty laugh, her desire to help others and the tireless way she tackled projects. She was a fiercely loyal mother, grandmother, and friend to many.

Born in Toronto to Kay (Cleverdon) and Harold Sutherland on December 11, 1939, her official name was Kathleen Anne but was always known as Anne (with-an-E), or “Suds” by her school chums at Malvern Collegiate High School, and then at The Hospital for Sick Children’s School of Nursing, where she graduated in 1960 as a registered nurse. She will be missed at her class’s 60th reunion this year.

In addition to her nurse’s cap, Anne wore many other hats through her life: poet, genealogist, dog breeder, Obedience instructor, Girl Guide leader, store owner, real estate agent, family historian-archivist-storyteller, politics-addict, fundraiser, reader, thinker, debater, communicator, baker, gardener, costume maker, dollhouse builder, knitter, and crocheter. An active member of St. Paul’s Leaskdale, she ran the TIAO and Knit-a-Square missions, which provide children in Africa with hand-made blankets. Anne’s strong faith reassures us she will be greeted with a ball of yarn, a crochet hook, and the assurance that her hands will never again cramp as she works away at creating beauty and warmth for those who need it.

Anne was a devoted mother to Kelly (Boehm) and Wendy (Lewis), a proud Gaga (grandma) to Kate Boehm, Michael Boehm, Brian Boehm, Amelia Murray and Madeline Murray, a feisty mother-in-law to Rick Boehm and Rob Murray, and best buds with her snuffly pug, Meeka. Her absence will be keenly felt by her beloved family and many, many friends.

Arrangements are entrusted to Low and Low Funeral Home, Uxbridge. A private burial will take place on Friday, April 3 at the Foster Memorial Cemetery, and a Celebration of her wonderful life will be announced in the near future. In lieu of flowers, and if desired, memorial donations can be made to St. Paul’s Leaskdale.  Leave a Condolence.

KENNEDY, Tressa Rae

Uxbridge Chapel

We are sad to announce that Tressa Rae Kennedy (nee Behl) has recently died.  She was only 49 years old.  She will be missed by many, including her parents, Ron and Josephine; her loving, handsome husband Paul and their two fantastic kids, Esther and George; her brother Chris, his two girls, Alysa and Hailey, and by her late brother Nathan who died just a few years ago.  She will also be missed by numerous other family members and friends, some of whom were particularly special like Amanda Bingham and Candice Rosa.  A high school tutor by trade, her absence will also be felt by all the students she has taught over the years.  Oh, how she loved teaching!  And oh, how she loved her students!

She was lucky to be loved by so many.

A resident of Uxbridge for over 20 years, she has always called this town her home.  She often said that the people in this town helped to define who she really was.  So many opened their arms and hearts to her and her family that she will be forever grateful.  She also wishes to thank everyone who helped and supported her in this stupid, but glorious life. 

Come and celebrate Tressa’s life.  She would love it if you came with a smile on your face rather than a tear in your eye, but bearing in mind her propensity for emotions, she wants you to come, however you are. 

And for anyone who did not know, Tressa was suffering from ALS.  She just couldn’t seem to get a handle on that damn disease. 

And when you see her kids, Esther and George, make sure to give them a hug, and tell them everything is going to be okay.  They will need to hear and feel this.  Thanks. 

And so she goes onwards and upwards. 

Funeral service will be at the Trinity United Church, 20 1ST Avenue, Uxbridge on Friday, January 24, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Uxbridge (905-852-3073).  Leave a Condolence.

WALLACE, Shirley Marilyn

May 31, 1926 – December 31, 2019

Port Perry Chapel

Marilyn Wallace passed away peacefully, at Port Perry Place on Tuesday December 31, 2019 after a remarkable and full life that touched many and spanned 93 years.

Beloved wife of the late Thomas Douglas Wallace and the late William George Samells.  Cherished mother of Dianne Chandler (Bernie), Dale Wallace (Jane) and Darcy Wallace (Nancy), stepmother of Linda Wescott (Larry) and Bill Samells (Connie).  Proud grandmother of Daniel Wallace (Jamie), Laura Jarvis (Micah), Christina Wallace (Adam), Sarah Beckner (Chris), Andrew Wallace and step grandchildren Tyler Wescott, Brittany Uchacz (Daniel), Jake Wescott, Samantha Samells and Abby Samells.  Adoring great grandmother of Ana Joy Jarvis and Callum Jarvis.  Beloved sister of Royetta Monroe (of California) and cherished aunt of her daughters, Gaylynn Monroe and Jerry Sphar.  Loving aunt of other nieces and nephews.  She was pre-deceased by her brothers Ralph and Earl Horn. 

Marilyn was born in Weybridge, Vermont to Joseph Horn and Florence Wells.  She spoke fondly of her childhood on the farm with her three siblings, her love of this time and place remaining with her throughout her life.  Marilyn grew up in Vermont, Hamilton, Welland and Buffalo, where she graduated from high school in 1943.  Trained in drafting after high school, she worked in a Buffalo war plant until her marriage to Douglas Wallace in 1945.  They lived first in Welland, Ontario, then raised their family in Fenwick and Port Perry.  Marilyn was a dear wife, extraordinarily loving mother and unwavering friend; her smile brought light to everyone she met.  She was an excellent seamstress and accomplished artist in oils and silk painting.  She later established “Designer Silks”, a business that brought her art to life in silk scarves, ties and other garments worn by patrons throughout the province and abroad.  Her love for reading and history spilled over into her work as a local librarian, in book clubs and Bible studies with fellow members of the United Churches she attended.  She served faithfully in the congregations at Scugog and Port Perry churches, where she was involved in the development of a teen drop-in centre.  She lovingly taught a teen girls class that later grew into the Young Peoples class that she led.  Marilyn was also an active member on the Church Session.   In 1979, at age 53, she graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with a BA in Religion and Culture.  In later life Marilyn became somewhat of a “globetrotter”, travelling to Bermuda, the UK, Morocco, Egypt, Greece, Germany and India as well as leading several tours to China.  Marilyn took her faith in God seriously, always striving to show compassion, love and friendship to those around her.

The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Brian Tse, the staff of Port Perry Place and Mrs. Kathy Budd for their loving, compassionate care and friendship to Marilyn.  Thank you also to the many friends who regularly visited her, showing her movies and keeping her up to date on the news of the community. 

Family and friends are invited to honour and remember Marilyn at a Celebration of Life service to be held at the Low and Low Funeral Chapel, 1763 Reach Street, Port Perry (905-985-7331) on Saturday, May 9, 2020 with times to be confirmed.

Those who wish to remember Marilyn in a special way can contribute to Port Perry Hospital Foundation, The Heart and Stroke Foundation or The Canadian Cancer Society. Send Condolence

It is with the heaviest hearts and greatest sadness that we announce the passing of a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. On December 20th, Beverley passed away peacefully with her 4 children and husband by her side.

She devoted her life to those around her, from volunteering at the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for the past 25 years and The Sacred Heart Catholic Church, to always ensuring that her 12 grandchildren had the freshest batch of muffins, she was always looking for ways in which she could give to others.  Nothing made Beverley happier than having her family of 22 gathered around the table over a home cooked meal.  Family was her everything and top priority.  Beverley never let the hustle and bustle get in the way of having a vested interest in the lives of all those around her.  She was the greatest listener, advisor and confidante.  Beverley had the kindest heart, one that blessed all of those she touched.  Her time here on earth was filled with blessings – she was our angel on earth who has now joined her angels up in heaven.

McFADYEN, Jack
June 13, 1935 - November 11, 2019

Uxbridge Chapel

Jack’s time with us ended on November 11, 2019 but he will live on forever in our memories.  His was truly a life well-lived.  An only child, Jack was born in Toronto and raised by his mother Lu while his father Mac served as a Burma Bomber; this gave Jack a life-long love of World War II history. Jack’s personality and life view were heavily influenced by his childhood heroes from movies and literature; to the end of his life he would tear up watching “Shane” or reading “The Catcher in the Rye”.  Jack was an incredibly well-educated person who could recite poetry learned in childhood, and knew the Latin root of any word.  Following graduation from the University of Toronto and time in the RCAF Reserves, he travelled the world twice over before meeting his wife Stella – also a teacher – in Nairobi, Kenya.  They married and returned to Canada with their first-born, Sophie.  Three more children soon followed – Katie, Darcy and Jamie.  The family enjoyed many happy years on Courcelette Road.  Stella was a wonderful mother and wife and Jack had a long and successful teaching career, including several years as President of the Toronto Teachers’ Federation.  Jack and Stella enjoyed early retirement together, travelling and welcoming nine grandchildren.  Jack continued to be a loyal and loving caregiver to Lu and Mac.  Sadly, we lost Jamie in 2006 and Stella in 2012, but Jack recovered and continued to live life to the fullest, moving to Uxbridge where he made new friends and spent his final years breaking down barriers and crusading against political correctness.  No one who met him will ever forget him. 

Please join us at a celebration of Jack’s life at Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge (905-852-3073), on Sunday, November 17, 2019 from 1:00 -4:00 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to CAMH in memory of Lu and Jamie, or to the Alzheimer’s Society of Durham Region in memory of Stella.  Leave A Condolence.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Samuel James Dodd at the age of 52. Sam passed away on the morning of October 16, 2019 after his long battle with brain cancer.

Sam will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 30 years Roni Sue (née Childs), son Kyle (Megan) and daughter Samantha (Rob) and his furry friends Digby and Chelsea. Son to Maureen and the late Samuel Dodd, son-in-law to Ron and Bev Childs. Brother to Sheila, and Linda (Rob), and a brother-in-law to Julie and Karen (Gary). An uncle to all his nieces and nephews; Niki (Natacha), Cal (Julianne), Zack (Carley), Elysia (Andrew), Olivia (Joey), Anthony (Vanessa), Shawna (Jason), Jadelyn, Anson, Brandon (Jess).

Sam will always be remembered for his positive attitude in life, especially throughout his long battle with cancer during which he approached hurdles with a smile, a thumbs up and an “Okay!” He could light up a room with his wide grin and hardy laugh.

Sam enjoyed many aspects of life; his family, his career with Mars, golf, cycling, a love of travel, The Toronto Maple Leafs, cooking and barbequing, and his Scottish heritage. Sam was loved by many and will be missed by all.

The family will be forever grateful and gives special thanks to the Margaret Bahen Hospice staff and volunteers for their care and compassion shown to Sam in his last 3 months.

The celebration of life will be held at Scrambles Restaurant (Foxbridge Golf Course in Uxbridge) on Sunday November 10, 2019 from 3:30 to 6:30.

Former wife of Christopher Gay and current swashbuckler/companion to Theodore (Tao) Dekkema.  She also leaves behind an extensive compilation of crossword puzzle books as well as more Ryvita and peanuts than any one person needs. We are sad to say good-bye, but she will live on forever in our cherished memories of her tenacious personality, extensive vocabulary, kind and loving heart and boundless realism.

The moment that you died, my heart was torn in two

One side filled with heartache, the other died with you.

I often lie awake at night when the world is fast asleep, and

Take a walk on memory lane with tears upon my cheeks.

Remembering you is easy I do it every day,

But missing you is heartache that never goes away.

I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain.

Until the joyous day arrives that we will meet again.

CLERMONT, Isobel

Port Perry Chapel

Isobel Clermont passed away at home in Port Perry on Friday, June, 21 2019 at the age of 92. She will be missed tremendously by her daughter Celine, and son in-law Dan, as well as extended family and friends.

Isobel was a special individual who made a positive impression on everyone who crossed her path. She was a generous and giving person who seldom, if ever, complained. She always had a good word for everyone, and was upbeat and pleasant, even when in excruciating pain.

Isobel lost her husband of 64 years Roger, several years ago, and that left a huge void in her life. But she always remained positive, spending countless hours watching TV with Celine or reading with her dog Sookie by her side.

Over the past three months, Isobel was bedridden, and her health declined rapidly. The doctor, nurses, and personal service workers came to the house and provided her with excellent care. During those visits one thing became abundantly clear, they recognized how special Isobel really was, and bonds of friendship were immediately established.

When notified of her passing, many offered kind words, and described how this frail Scottish senior had touched their lives.

Isobel was a modest women, who went through life with a kind word and a smile. She was by no means financially wealthy, but it didn’t matter. Her currency was her character, and the way she treated and loved people. Isobel always left everyone feeling good about themselves, friends and strangers alike.

She will be missed dearly.  

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, July 14, 2019 from 1pm until 4pm at the Oshawa and District Shrine Club, 1626 Simcoe Street North, Oshawa. Arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, Port Perry (905-985-7331). Donations in honour of Isobel may be made to the Scugog Humane Society or the Oak Ridges Hospice of Durham. Send Condolence

DOUGLAS, Kenneth Frederick  

Uxbridge Chapel

Kenneth was born September 20, 1940 in Toronto, Ontario and passed away on June 20, 2019 at the age of 78 after a valiant battle with terminal cancer. Ken worked in the ‘shoe business’ for over 40 years, and spent much of his career as the manager of the men’s department at Harry Young Shoes in Toronto. He had many loyal customers over the years as the store catered to the niche market of hard to fit feet. He often recalled his earlier days as a youth working as an usher in the beautiful Eglin and Winter Garden Theatre. Ken has had a love for film and would while driving through the city, point out the location of long ago closed theatres such as the Shea Hippodrome theatre where the new Toronto City Hall now stands and tell the story of film chosen to close the theatre (an Elvis film), which caused such an uproar that the theatre had to eventually close with another film deemed as more suitable. That film was Casablana. Ken described through his stories, the story of his city growing with him – from going to the movies for $0.25 (admission and snacks), to playing in the Don Valley ravines before the highway came through, to riding the subway for the first time. Ken grew up in the Danforth area and was the oldest of 6 children.

Caring husband to Sonia (Kosowan) for 29 years, loving father to Tammy (Stephanie) Douglas and Tracey Douglas and proud grandpa to his grandson, Everett Richard-Douglas. Ken is predeceased by Sonia (2012) and Tracey (2014). Ken is also predeceased by parents, Fred and Irene (Dowling) Douglas and siblings Sandra and Barry Douglas. He is survived by, and will be lovingly remembered by siblings Ron (Jean) Douglas, Donna (Tom) McLarty, Wayne (Donna) Douglas and sister-in-law Betty (Toth) Douglas as well as many cherished cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Ken will be greatly missed by his daughter & family.

A gathering to celebrate his life will be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 11am-2pm at the home of his daughter, Tammy. Ken will be cremated and laid to rest at Bowmanville Cemetery, 130 Haines Street, Bowmanville, ON. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society are most welcome. Ken was well supported by the volunteers in the Wheels of Hope program that assisted in driving him to his many treatments. Thanks go out to Lakeridge Health Oshawa for their continued support and care of Ken during his illness. Send Condolence

FRAME, CLIFFORD HUGH, P.ENG.,B.A.Sc.

Port Perry Chapel

1933 - 2019

Cliff passed away on May 21, 2019, aged 85, following a short illness, with his loving wife Catherine by his side at his home in Uxbridge. He is survived by Catherine, his seven children: Wendy, Kathleen, Jamie, Clifford, Geordie, Cameron and Mervyn; his 15 grandchildren: Clifford, Callum, Kyle, Andre, Shannon, Isabelle, Shane, Natasha, Nicholas, Alexa, Charlotte H., Kayleigh, Avery, Charlotte F. and Everleigh; and seven great-grandchildren.

Cliff was born in Russel, Manitoba, but was brought up in Trail, BC, after his parents moved there is 1935. Cliff often commented that he had an idyllic childhood in the mining town of Trail. The town had one of the best junior A hockey teams in Canada at the time, The Trail Smoke Eaters, on which he played defence. Trail also had some of the best skiing in the vicinity, with many mountains and rivers where he learned to hunt and fish. His summer semester jobs in the local smelter and mines of Cominco Ltd. provided him with the start to his mining career.

Turning down the opportunity to play with the New York Rangers, Cliff attended the University of British Columbia, financed by a hockey scholarship. In 1956, Cliff graduated with a degree in Mining Engineering. He would go on to have an expansive career in mining over the decades, and is renowned as one of the most accomplished primary resource-based developers anywhere in the world during his time; leading and making successes of large and complex world-class business ventures throughout much of the world, spanning Canada, Asia, Africa, and Europe. Cliff was named the highly respected "Mining Man of the Year" by the Northern Miner in 1984, and again in 1987, an accomplishment for which he was later recognized by Prime Minister Mulroney. 

Cliff began his mining career at Denison Mines Limited, a company for which he would work three times over the course of his career and eventually become president. For over ten years, Cliff also worked for International Nickel Company in Canada, Australia and Indonesia.  In 1971, Cliff moved to Ireland to develop Europe's largest lead-zinc mine owned by Tara Mines. Cliff would go on to form Curragh Resources in 1985 and successfully re-opened the Cypress Anvil zinc and nickel mine in the Yukon. In 1989 Cliff was particularly proud of being made an Honorary

Chief of the Kaska Dena Nation, which awarded him the name 'Ano Sede', meaning 'man who travels afar'. This honour was bestowed upon Cliff after Curragh entered into a joint venture to develop the Sa Dena Hes lead and zinc mine in the Yukon, which extended to the Kaska Dena Nation business, employment and trading relating to this venture. Further along in his career, he formed and  owned several resource-based companies in Canada, which included Ontzinc, Frame Mining, Silvermet and Global Uranium. Cliff also sat on the board of directors of several companies and provided expertise advice and consulting to many others.

In 2007 Cliff established the ' Clifford H. Frame Sustainable Mining and Processing Engineering Endowment' fund at the University of British Columbia in support of mining engineering-related activities and programmes at the university. He was also a guest lecturer at McGill University.

Cliff was a member of the Thompson Chapter of the Masonic Lodge of Manitoba for more than fifty years and a contributing member of Rameses Shrine.

Whenever possible, Cliff continued to hunt and fish, primarily in the Canadian North and Alaska.  He particularly enjoyed canoe and fishing trips with his wife and friends. He skied into his eighties, typically at his favourite skiing destination in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Until his final days he was delighted to be living on his working farm in Uxbridge where he raised Black Angus cattle. It was where he loved to be and, over the years, where he enjoyed countless visits from his loving family and friends. In his heart, Cliff was always a true family man, a loving husband, a committed father, and a doting grandfather. He will be profoundly missed.

Visitation will be held at the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, Port Perry (905-985-7331) on Sunday, May 26, 2019 from 6:00 – 9: 00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at Trinity United Church, 20 First Ave, Uxbridge, on Monday, May 27, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. with visitation beginning at 10:00 a.m. Immediately following the service, Cliff will be laid to rest in Uxbridge Cemetery. If desired, donations to the Shriners Hospital for Children – Montreal Unit are welcome in lieu of flowers. Send Condolence

LINDSAY, Kevin

May 9, 1995 - January 23, 2019

Port Perry Chapel

It breaks our hearts to inform you all of the sudden passing of Kevin James Lindsay. Born May 9th, 1995. Graduating from Port Perry High School and continuing his education at York University and OCAD. He was a man of many passions. An avid reader, deeply interested in literature as well as worldly events, involving history, geography, science, politics, people and poetry. A lover of all music, his mind was open to hear all sounds of the world. Heavily inspired by Frank Zappa, this is what brought him to understand technical performance. He was a talented musician; a passionate drummer who played the skins like no one else. There was never a dull moment so long as there was music to listen to. Art is one of the passions that made him love life. From photography to painting, Kevin had an extremely unique approach. All of his work was done with dedication, time, and precision. As a result each piece was a masterpiece. Think of Vincent Van Gogh. This was a man Kevin spoke of often and drew much inspiration from. And lastly he fell in love with film. This was a passion from the beginning. When film is mentioned think not of a classic Hollywood flic, directors such as Passolini and Kuro-sawa were his inspiration. Films that touched on a more obscure view, he collected and took care of, to preserve and reference. He was a man with knowledge beyond his years and was greatly interested in sharing what he learned with anyone that would listen. Kevin was a very gentle, well spoken man. He had a wry outlandish sense of humor, good natured with a big beautiful heart who loved his family and especially his best friend Autumn. Full of energy and intelligence, there was something special in his eyes. He is someone to never forget and would only want us to learn what he has learnt, live with love in our hearts, and kindness as our intention to treat others.

Beloved and cherished, Kevin is survived by his loving partner Autumn Saunders, Brian and Cathy Lindsay (parents), Morgan Lindsay (sister), Neville and Tiffany Saunders (In-laws), Arielle Saunders (sister in-law), Ray and Donna Laughlen (grandparents), Ruth Foote (Nana), Ken Darlington (great-grandfather), and many Aunts, Uncles and cousins.

Please join us in celebrating this brilliant man’s life, and to love and remember him, on Sunday February 10th, 2019 from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm, followed by a time of sharing, where you are invited to share stories, and memories of Kevin. If Desired, Memorial Donations to The New Animal Shelter for Uxbridge-Scugog would be appreciated by the family. Send Condolence

WOODWARD, M. Jean

Port Perry Chapel

Peacefully at Lakeridge Health Port Perry on Thursday, January 10, 2019, Margaret Jean Woodward passed away from Mesothelioma. Jean is survived by her beloved husband of 67 years, Grantley Thomas Woodward; their children Judith Ann Peshal (Steven), Jane Elizabeth Woodward Michalak, Susan Lynn Jones (David) and William Grantley Woodward. Cherished grandmother of Stephanie Richardson (Tom), Kristi Honey (Tom), Matthew Peshal (Sarah), Lindsay Schuster (Andrew), David Jones (Kim), Elizabeth Taylor (Brad), Sarah Holt (Spencer), Jacqueline Fortner (Randy), Rachel Woodward, Gregory Woodward and Michael Woodward. Loving great-grandmother of Trisha and Megan Lee, Ella and Grantley Honey, Kaylin Harris, Steven, Nolan and Nathan Peshal, Ronan, Greta and Hugh Jones, Makenna and Goldie Taylor, Xavier Holt and Katelyn Fortner. Jean is predeceased by her parents William Stocks Newsome and Mary Ann Newsome, sister Betty Hill and brother Bill Newsome.

Jean was born in Weston, Ontario. After being raised and educated in Weston and England, Jean began her career as an elementary teacher. After marrying the love of her life, Grantley, and raising their four children and many foster children, Jean returned to the classroom. Her love for her family, friends and the community were hallmarks of Jean’s life. Never once wanting to be in the spotlight, Jean was an exemplary teacher, active church and UCW member, community volunteer at the school breakfast program and in Canterbury Commons. She took pride in hosting luncheons for her friends, former schoolmates, Christmas open houses, Couples Club, weekends at the cottage, family reunions and events. Despite developing macular degeneration, which left her legally blind, Jean continued to volunteer making phone calls to invalids to boost their spirits. As a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Jean’s love and support were felt by all. Not a birthday, anniversary, graduation, recital, holiday went by without her remembering or attending. Her never ending love, dedication and care of Grantley was obvious to all. Jean had a wonderful life. We are all blessed to have shared our lives with her.

Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,

But remember me in every tomorrow.

Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,

I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,

My going has eased my hurt

And given me relief

So dry your eyes and remember me

Not as I am now, but as I used to be.

Because, I will remember you all,

and look on with a smile.

Understand in your hearts,

I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

As long as I have the love of each of you,

I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

~ Remember Me, by Joey Beighley
