ATKINSON, Violet Grace

Port Perry Chapel

Following a brief hospitalization, Violet left this world peacefully on Saturday, January 13th, in her 98th year, surrounded by loving family, excellent care, favourite music and fond memories.  Violet was a dedicated wife to Andrew Atkinson (d.1993) for 55 years; a loving mother to Carol (Harold Naylor, d.2006), Donna (Brian Shanley), Alan (d.1970) (MaryAnn Phillips), Diane White and Joanne (John Marsh). A beloved Gram to 10 grandchildren - Lori (Allen Mulhall), Scott (Karen Naylor), Lynne (Fran Lorbetskie), Jason (Lisa Capnerhurst), Paula (Chad Bowey), Dan (Kerri Marsh), Brad (Jennifer Bacon), Brooke (Tyler Riopel), Andrew (Stacy Kilmer) and Mike (Dianne Marsh). Proud Great-Gramma to "16.5" great-grandchildren - Autumn, Zach and Sabrina White; Brandon, Malcolm, and William Marsh; Sierra McNaughton, Isaac, Silas, and Ezra Bowey; Alan Atkinson; Brody and Rylie Shanley; Adelle and Bronwyn Riopel; and Logan Marsh (with a baby sister expected in February); and finally, Great-Great Gramma to Jasper White. She is the eldest, and last surviving sister to Eleanor, William, Elsie, Marjorie, Ted, and Doug.  She is the cherished and esteemed matriarch of our many Northern cousins in "the Soo", Massey, Sudbury, North Bay and area.  Violet was a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews and extended family.

Violet was born on April 10, 1920 in Haileybury Ontario, to William and Grace Thompson.  As a child, she spent time with her grandparents in Blind River, Ontario, where her Grandfather Hawkins ran the general store.  Violet and Andy married in Toronto in May 1938, and Carol was born in 1940.  Andy soon shipped off to defend his country in World War II.  Upon his return, the family, now including Donna and Alan lived in Ingersoll.  They returned to Toronto, York Township to be exact, and began their long tenure in the familiar 497 Hopewell Avenue home, which then welcomed Diane and Joanne. Violet made that house, however tiny and modest, home and shelter to many.  At one time there were up to 9 individuals (including in-laws) under that gray roof, with only two bedrooms and one bathroom!  It was a landing pad for our visiting Northern relatives, solace to many young people, and a loving and fun place full of mysterious closets for her many grandchildren to explore and slide down the stairs. Many happy summers were spent at the family cottage at Green River- another modest tiny building, bursting at the seams with family, friends, fun and love thanks to Vi. In addition to running the household and family, Vi worked outside the home at a number of jobs.  She would often reminisce about her days in the kitchen at Winona Drive school.  Her cooking was legendary - many of you would have enjoyed her chili sauce, sausage rolls, potato salad, baked goods and Christmas fruit cakes. 

In 1970, tragically, her only son Alan was taken from her in a car accident.  She grieved his loss to her final days. 

Sadly, Andy passed away in 1993, and she sold the house on Hopewell.  But our Violet did not retire quietly - this was the beginning of a new chapter of travel adventures.   She began with a solo trip to England, and toured for 3 weeks as her first adventure.  She followed with many more trips and cruises, including Alaska, Italy, Florida, the Caribbean, Mexico, Vegas, Newfoundland, as well as several trips to B.C., on her own, with her adventurous travel partners, and with family. By this time, Vi had settled in Port Perry, and adjusted easily to small-town life.  She was active in swimming for many years and began a love of golf at 75 years young.  She even did a modelling job for a fur clothing company! 

Vi did not learn to drive until her mid 40's, but then there was no stopping her.  She loved to drive her metallic blue Grand Am with her infamous "ANDY VI" license plate, and could be seen coming down the road as she would fearlessly drive to visit family in Toronto, Orillia and beyond.  She loved to visit Sault Ste. Marie to be with her Northern relatives.  Whether it was a celebration, a wedding, an ill relative or a funeral, Vi made sure that she was there for her Northern family.  

As Vi's health needs increased, she settled at White Cliffe Retirement Residence in 2011.  She enjoyed group outings such as the new Toronto Aquarium, but her favourite outings were always to the casino!  As White Cliffe's most senior resident, she was beloved by the staff and residents alike, and always enjoyed the monthly sing-alongs provided by our dear cousin Jim Atkinson.

Over the years, Violet was a great letter writer.  Her "can-do" attitude led her to learn to use email, when she was well into her 80's.  She was a devoted friend, and we remember her dear friends Beryl Flowers and Anne Phillips, Jock and Rita, and Bill and Connie Walker.

We hope that you will remember your own stories of Vi's long and well-lived life, and share them with our family as we gather to remember her.  Her arms always welcomed friends and loved ones.  

Visitation for Violet will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at the Low and Low Funeral Home, Port Perry (905-985-7331) beginning at 12 p.m. until service time in the chapel at 2 p.m. Send Condolence

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Bob Sage on Sunday, December 17, 2017 at Mt. Sinai Hospital, Toronto at the age of 58. For 16 months Bob fought a brave and courageous battle with leukemia “One Day at a Time”.  He never gave up his fight and his positivity throughout his journey was such an inspiration to so many people.  Family was everything to Bob and he was surrounded by them right until the end.  He leaves behind his beloved wife of 31 years, Kim whom he was best friends with for 41 years.  Together they have two amazing and loving sons, Brandon and Michael (Kaitlyn).  Bob is also dearly missed by his loving mother Joan Sage (predeceased by his father, Bruce on March 14, 2017), cherished sisters Brenda Carthy (Rob) and Susan Jarrett (Dave), mother-in-law Shirley Dollery (Gene) and sister-in-law Val Kolenbrander (Rick).  He was adored and will be sadly missed by his many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, extended family and dear friends.

Bob and Kim have run a very successful business (Bramic Creative Business Products) for the past 25 years, where their 2 sons now play an important role in the organization. Bob had the biggest heart and a real zest for life.  He loved his home in the countryside and spent all of his spare time outdoors enjoying his cottage, boating, snowmobiling and feeding his deer.  Bob made friends everywhere and always put others before himself.  He left a lasting impact with everyone he met, including other leukemia patients and their families who were having a challenging time with their illness.

A very special thank you to Doctors Minden, Khalaf, Thyagu and Loach and the nursing staff at Princess Margaret Hospital, as well as Dr. Solow and the nursing staff at Markham Stouffville Hospital. We are forever grateful for your knowledge, care and concern.  You worked just as hard as Bob did to try to win this battle right along with him. 

Bob, you are so loved and the memories that we made will be in our hearts forever. Rest in peace now until we meet again.
