PERRY, Arthur

Uxbridge Chapel

At the Sunnybrook Veterans Centre, four months shy of his 102nd birthday on Monday, June 11, 2018, Rev. Arthur Perry died as he had lived, with grace and dignity. His spirit will live on in his children,  Don (Evelyn), Marie McElrae (the late Jack), Carol Rose-Kudelka (the late John), Ralph(the late Joyce), his many grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.  Predeceased by his first wife Laurine (2007), and daughter Lucinda (1987).  His memory will forever remain in the heart of his wife, Linda Perry. Rev. Perry was a minister in the Free Methodist Church of Canada from 1945-1980 however, he never stopped sharing encouraging sermons whenever he got a chance.  Arthur's curious and creative mind kept him engaged up until his final day.  He was richly blessed with many creative talents, in the arts; drawing, painting, carving, making violins, mandolins, and other instruments.  He could always find a use for discarded items-always the inventor, creating either from scratch, recycling, reusing, and repurposing, long before it became fashionable.  A broken down washing machine became an outboard motor for a homemade runabout, which invariably left him stranded in the middle of some lake, this never discouraged him. His book of memoirs said it all, 'What A Wonderful Life!'

A celebration of Arthur’s Life will take place on Monday, June 18, 2018 at the Uxbridge Free Methodist Church, 81 Reach Street, Uxbridge at 12 p.m. with visitation one hour prior. Donations in memory of Arthur may be made to a charity of choice. Send Condolence

SHAW, Dr. William Frederick

Port Perry Chapel

Died peacefully in his sleep at home in Port Perry, Ontario on Saturday, May 26, 2018. Bill will be deeply missed by his wife and best friend of 28 years, Laurette Vachon, his children Sharon, Debbie, William, his step-children Danny, Alain, Sonia and Anick. His grandchildren Genevieve, Kristal, Jessica, Tristan, Mackenzie, Eric and Cameron will also greatly miss “Grand-dad Bill”. He sadly leaves his sister Kathy Shaw-Andres and brother Barry Shaw. He is joining his late brother George and sister Marjorie.

Bill was born in Montreal on October 13, 1932, son of the late Fred Shaw, mother Peggy and step-mother Molly. He studied at McGill University and graduated in 1958 in the Faculty of Dentistry as an Oral Surgeon. After serving five years in the Canadian Armed Forces overseas, he entered private practice in Hudson, Quebec. In 1965, Bill became one of the original staff of the Lakeshore General Hospital in Pointe-Claire, Quebec. He then moved his practice to Pointe-Claire where he founded “Les Dentistes de South West One” and worked there until the age of 77. He was the “Robin Hood” of dentists, known for his many charitable dental services to underprivileged and disabled clients.

One of Bill’s many passions was politics. From 1965 to 1968 he was the President of the Progressive Conservative Party in the County of Vaudreuil. Then in 1976 he was elected to the Quebec Legislature representing the riding of Pointe-Claire for five years. During this period, the Parti Quebecois was also elected and the Quebec independence movement became a reality. Bill was actively involved supporting the federalist side, and with his friend Lionel Albert wrote the book “Partition, the Price of Quebec’s Independence”.

In addition to dentistry and politics, Bill enjoyed singing and writing. Beginning at McGill, Bill would perform in light opera, often in the lead role in Gilbert and Sullivan productions. While in Pointe-Claire, he joined the Lakeshore Light Opera Company. Several church choirs benefited from his lovely tenor and later baritone voice. After retirement, Bill turned his hand to writing historical fiction and in 2014 published the book “Damned Adventure”, chronicling the American (revolutionary) war and its impact on Quebec City.

For recreation, Bill enjoyed sports, particularly golf. In his younger days, he coached football and basketball at College Bourget in Rigaud, and then became involved in sailing. Bill was always available to play a game of golf and was looking forward to the 2018 season. In 2010, Bill and his wife Laurette moved to Port Perry, Ontario in an Adult Lifestyle Community where they enjoyed the golf course, the many activities but most of all the wonderful people.

A larger than life and increasingly wise husband, father, grandfather and friend, the world is a far less interesting place for his absence.

A Celebration of Bill’s Life will be held at the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, Port Perry (905-985-7331) on Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 1-4 p.m. with a time of sharing in the chapel at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Bill may be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada or the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

WOODS, Marran Diane

Uxbridge Chapel 

In the late evening on May 22, 2018, Marran Woods (née Funk) passed away after suffering complications of the heart brought on by a pre-existing condition of amyloidosis. Her husband of 38 years, Glenn, was able to be with her when she passed. Marran leaves behind three children; Tori (Drew), Drew (Steph) and Alexa (Jamie), five grandchildren; Charlie and Finnegan McCarthy, and Caden, Kara and Ethan Steffensmeier, her sister Gail Bailey (Funk), and Jack the Wonder Dog. She is predeceased by her parents Henry and Allison Funk (Allen), and her sister Jan Odegard (Funk).  Marran’s passing was sudden and unanticipated. She was a beautiful mother to her children and spent as much time as she could with her grandchildren. Marran will forever be remembered for her nurturing ways, her love of travel and books, and her creativity.  She had an infallible eagerness for unique experiences like riding her motorcycle, scuba diving, and speeding around the track in a Formula One–style race car.  But above all, she was known to be fiercely loyal to those she loved.  Marran was fortunate to see much of the world, volunteering to teach English in Cambodia and visiting friends all over the globe—but she was always happiest at home surrounded by her family.

There will be no funeral service, but the family will hold a small gathering at their cottage to remember a most magnificent wife, mother and friend. Arrangements entrusted to Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street S., Uxbridge (905-852-3073).  Send Condolence

CLARK, Betty Vera

Passed gently away on Sunday, May 20, 2018 in her 88th year.  Beloved wife for 58 years of the late Dr. Roy M. Clark; dear mother of Paul and Chris; delightful Nanny to grandchildren Julian, Deanna and Shawn. Betty was a real character to the very end: very English (despite her 52 years in Canada), very decided, and very proper, but always with an acerbic comment lurking in the background. She had been ready to go for years, so we would not wish her back again, but she will, no doubt, regret having missed the Queen’s funeral.

If your fancy takes you, it would be lovely if you made a donation in her name to your favourite charity, or just have a cup of tea and a bikki and recite a verse or two of “Daffodils” in her honour. “I wandered lonely as a cloud...”

A private family ceremony will take place later in the summer. Arrangements entrusted to Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street S., Uxbridge (905-852-3073). Send Condolence

MITCHELL, Alexander "Sandy" J.

February 16, 1944 - May 5, 2018

 

Uxbridge Chapel

 

Farmer, Founder, Paralympian, Lion, Visionary, Sailor, Philanthropist


Alexander J. Mitchell, known to all as Sandy, passed away peacefully on Saturday May 5th, 2018 in Uxbridge, Ontario, following a short illness. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Sandy moved with his family to Bermuda at a very young age; later to return to Scotland in his youth and then back to Bermuda as a young man until his immigration to Canada in 2004. Sandy’s life can only be described as amazing. Not just for what he personally accomplished but for what he inspired others of all ages and abilities to experience and accomplish. This number can be measured in the thousands.

If you asked Sandy how he viewed himself, he would probably reply “I am a farmer”. That was his ambition as a young man, likely based on his experience working on a farm for people with special needs when he was a teenager.  Going to agricultural school and then buying a farm achieved that goal.  His relationship with animals, especially horses was likely hardwired and in his spirit, although he didn’t let that evolve until 1996 when he attended the Atlanta Paralympic Games as a spectator. This launched him into a career that included competing in three Paralympic games and qualifying for a fourth, London 2012. His leadership in the Hamilton Lions Club (Bermuda) was recognized with many awards, including the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award.

There is no doubt that a highlight of his life was as Founder of both WindReach Farm (1989) and WindReach Bermuda (1999). It would certainly take a book to tell all the WindReach stories from the past 30 years. Generations have been impacted by Sandy’s vision and action.  It is a legacy that will continue to make a difference in a world that Sandy was determined to make better for those with special needs of all ages and the communities they live in.  In 2000, Sandy’s dedication to his vision was recognized by the Queen of England when he was awarded as a Member of the Order of the British Empire.

Sandy leaves behind two sisters, Esther Lewis and Maggie Lascelles; his third sister, Caroline Cuthbert, passed away in April,2015. He also leaves his wife Sally Mitchell (nee Walker) and his son Vincent Mitchell from his previous marriage to Christine Mitchell (nee Vincent). He is pre deceased by his wife Maria Mitchell (Johnson). In addition, he leaves five step-daughters and their families including nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Friends may call at Low and Low Funeral Home, Uxbridge Ontario, on Sunday May 13, 2018 from 2-4pm. A Celebration of Life, will be held at WindReach Farm, Ashburn Ontario, on Monday May 14, 2018 at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to WindReach Farm Foundation, which is dedicated to sustaining and building on Sandy’s legacy. Send Condolence

MacKINNON, J. Merilyn

Port Perry Chapel 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of Merilyn at the age of 83, after a brief but hard fought battle with Leukemia. Merilyn MacKinnon, beloved wife of the late Ian, will be greatly missed by her daughter Carolynn. She is predeceased by her only son, John.   Strongly connected to her family, Merilyn was a wonderful sister to Beverley Anne Bayne and to the departed Peggy Gordon.  She will be missed by her many nieces, nephews and cousins in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and abroad. Raised in Ottawa, Merilyn attended Glebe Collegiate then became an x-ray technician at the Ottawa General Hospital.  After meeting her soon-to-be husband on a blind date, he convinced her to take a technical job in the labs of the National Research Council, where she was surprised when the scientists entered her in the Miss Civil Service Pageant and she won!  Newly married, Merilyn and Ian moved to Toronto where they settled in Hillcrest Village, built lifelong friendships and raised their family.  In the 1990’s, after founding and running her own marketing company, Merilyn retired with Ian to Port Perry and started a new wonderful life in Canterbury Commons, again diving into community activities and cherished living in a small town. Merilyn thoroughly enjoyed her home and cottage and loved to decorate and entertain. She expressed her passion for colour and design in her artwork and garden, and in later years became a true Anglophile, repeatedly visiting the UK and taking it all in. Merilyn was a steadfast friend and tended that garden regularly. She had an open heart, a determined spirit and was quick to laugh, even when things became especially difficult in the past few months. The family would like to thank the incredible nurses who cared for Merilyn in the last months. Your compassion was the very best medicine.

Family and friends will be received at the Low & Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach St., Port Perry, 905-985-7331, on Friday April 27, 2018 from 5 to 8 p.m. A celebration of Merilyn’s life will be held on Saturday April 28, 2018 at 11 a.m. at the Port Perry United Church, 294 Queen Street, Port Perry. A reception will follow the service at the Canterbury Commons Community Centre, 127 Waterbury Crescent, Port Perry.

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.
