RUCH, Sheila Elizabeth Irene (nee- Neal)

July 2, 1929 - February 24, 2019

Port Perry Chapel

Sheila passed away peacefully at Port Perry Place after a lengthy battle with Father time and the various ailments he could throw at her. Sheila was born in Wales and grew up in Britain, obtaining her university degree in arts and education before coming to Canada when she was young and becoming at various times, a wife, mother, and educator. She worked for some time as a substitute teacher for the Durham Board of Education and then as an assistant dean at Trafalgar Castle girls' school for years before she retired in the 1990s. She always found working with and molding the minds of the young to be very rewarding and satisfying. Outside of work, she was an avid reader and loved nature and gardening. Even when living in a small apartment in her later years, she was fond of making the grounds look nicer and tending to her roses and vegetables. And despite being of British origin, she was a dedicated fan of Toronto Blue Jays baseball. She is preceded into the Great Beyond by her sisters Anne and Mary and survived by two sons, Richard in Alberta and Dave, currently in the U.S., as well as beloved nieces Anabel and Juliette in Canada and various nieces and cousins in the U.K.

 Arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, Port Perry (905-985-7331). A private interment will be held in the spring. If inclined, people remembering Sheila fondly would be asked that in lieu of flowers, donations might be made to the Federation of Ontario Naturalists or the Crohns & Colitis Foundation in her memory.

WOOD, Susan Lynn (nee Hoggard)

Uxbridge Chapel

Passed away at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital on Thursday February 21st surrounded by her loving family and friends after a defiant 5-1/2 year battle with cancer. She was born to Carol Hoggard (nee Birch) and the late Keith Hoggard on September 4th, 1963.

Sue left the workforce in the mid-eighties to assume the role of household CEO and domestic goddess, while serving as an informal den mother to a revolving door of her kids' friends and various neighbourhood hooligans and strays. She was the consummate host and a master at improvising to feed the masses.

Returning to work later, she sought roles as a caregiver and advocate, particularly in support of children and adults with special needs, making lifelong friends with many of the families she worked with.

Sue was passionate about her faith in God, engaged in an unending quest for truth above all else and embodied the values of her beliefs.

Sue is survived by her mother Carol Hoggard; husband Michael Wood; children Dustin Wood (Julia), Brittany Gyivicsan (Kris) and Emily Wood; grandchildren Luther, Aidan, Hudson, Keaton, Perry, Arlo, Macaulay and one more grandchild to arrive this summer; sisters Kim Vliek (late Kevin Vliek) Wendy Laforest (Jean); soul sisters Margaret Minhas (Evans) and Rhonda Kinsie (Winder) and a small army of nieces, nephews and cousins.

The family are especially appreciative of the tireless work of the many doctors, nurses and health professionals who provided support and care throughout the treatment of Sue's illness, including Dr. Jennifer Wilson, Dr. Leena Hajra, Dr. Cal Doobay, Luanne Evans, and the palliative care team at Uxbridge Family Health. 

Arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home (905-852-3073). Visitation will be held at the Uxbridge Baptist Church, 231 Brock Street West, on Tuesday February 26 from 6:30 – 9:00 pm, and again on Wednesday from 10:30 am until time of Memorial Service at 12:00 pm.

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

 MANSELL, Raymond Michael P.Eng.

 

U of T'75, BASc.

 

Uxbridge Chapel

It is with deep sadness the family announces the passing of Ray on Friday, October 19, 2018, at age 66, surrounded in the loving presence of his wife, sons and brother.  He died with dignity and grace, as he lived his life. Ray leaves his wife Rose (nee Bradshaw), having recently celebrated a milestone 44th wedding anniversary.  His two beloved sons Michael, (Stacey) and Stephen, forever fiercely proud of their many accomplishments in life, both personal and professional. Grandpa Ray cherished a special bond with his beautiful grand-daughter Adina Grace, smiles only they understood, even in his final days. Ray also leaves his brother Gordon, (Inis), many cousins from both families, and a wide group of close Uxbridge friends.  Lifelong friends Anne and John, Michael and Margaret, their children and grandchildren, who have also become members of our family. Ray was predeceased by his parents Alvin and Eleanor Mansell.

As a graduate of St. Michael’s Choir School in Toronto, Ray played the organ at several Toronto churches growing up, working diligently and paying his own way through university, paid in full at graduation. Upon university graduation in Electrical Engineering, Ray was recruited by Motorola Canada Limited. His outstanding ability to solve complex challenges was immediately recognized by management. His particular quiet genius was rewarded as he quickly attained the position of Manufacturing Engineering Manager at age 26, successfully managing an established group of colleagues, some twice his age.  After 20 years with Motorola downsizing, Ray joined other companies to round out his CV.  He travelled the globe, working in Sweden for six months, Pakistan, and enjoyed countless trips to India, where he met new colleagues, studied the culture, and brought home fresh spices. Ray’s most recent position was in the capacity of Vice President of Network Engineering with Genwave Technologies, where he was an instrumental component in the initial orchestration of the company from day one of its inception. He reluctantly only resigned due to ill health. As a master woodworker, our home is filled with many of Ray’s beautiful creations.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Uxbridge (905-852-3073) on Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 1-4 pm.  A Time of Sharing is scheduled to begin at 3:30 pm. Please make donations in Ray’s name to “The Asperger’s Society of Ontario.” Send Condolence

Family and Friends were very important to Mom, and that was evident by the exuberant greetings she gave to all who came to see her in these last few weeks and days. Mountains of memories continue to flood back to our minds! She continued to ‘mother’ her family to the very end. Olive added her perspective of every recollection presented in these last visits. She had forgotten little. Mom knew everyone that visited and requested their hugs! One thing she certainly remembered was how to pray to her God. She would often do that...with her family, friends and the medical staff that were helping her. She remembered that God loved her, Jesus Christ had saved her, the Holy Spirit was with her and that her family loved her very much. Remembering these things, she said, gave her peace in her spirit and all the comfort she needed! She wanted all to know that no one needs to fear the future because Jesus Christ Lives today and loves each one! Funeral Arrangements are entrusted to Low & Low Funeral Home,
