Gary Corrigan

Nov 9, 1945 – December 14, 2014

 Corrigan Gary

Gary passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, December 14,2014, in the loving care of his family. Cherished husband of Maureen, and incredibly proud father of Kevin and Sharleen.    His family meant everything to him and over the years he welcomed his daughter in law Judith St. Pierre, and his son in law Bill Blois into the fold.  The arrival of his five adored grandchildren, Emily and Graeme Corrigan, and Erin, Rowan and Daniel Blois brought him tremendous joy. Gary’s parents, Arthur and Joan (Sharpe) Corrigan, predeceased him.  He is survived by his only brother Robert (David Roop).  He is also survived by his brother in law and sister in law, Richard and Martha Killoran, his two nephews, Michael and Christopher, and their families. Gary maintained his strength and dignity over the last few years in his battle with Multiple System Atrophy. Paralyzed and robbed of his ability to speak, he found ways to communicate with his eyes, and let those that he cared about know how much he loved them.  How those eyes could laugh!  His spirit was never broken.  He was blessed to have his caregivers, Sergette, Mario and Donna, and a circle of incredible friends who were always there for him.Gary remained at home throughout his illness until sudden complications resulted in hospitalization.  When the end was near, we were able to bring him home and surround him with love. Heartfelt gratitude to the wonderful nursing staff at the General 7 West and Drs.Daniel Smith and Adrienne Junek who moved mountains to allow us to bring him home, as well as to our family physician, Dr. Edward Seale, who provided Gary with wonderful care and support at home over the years and was here for us at the end. The family will receive relatives and friends at Heritage Funeral Home, 2871 St-Joseph Blvd., Orléans, on Sunday, December 21st, 2014, from 1 – 4 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, donations to Red Cross Canada or to the CNIB would be appreciated.  Condolences and donations may be made at: www.heritagefh.ca

MACDONALD: Violette of Stayner

Posted by on November 29, 2014

MacDonald0002Died peacefully on Tuesday November 25, 2014 at Campbell House Hospice, Collingwood surrounded by her family in her 92nd year. Vi of Stayner, loving Wife of Allister MacDonald for almost 70 years. Wonderful Mother of Bruce (Susan MacDonald), Kay Broadhurst (Donald Munroe), David (Julie MacDonald) and Stuart (Natalie MacDonald). Treasured Grandmother of Craig, Mike, Scott, Matthew, Jessica, Jasmine, Colton, Brody, Melissa, and Bradley. Caring Sister of the late Eugenie Duff, the late Peter Kay and the late Nelly Peffers. Beloved Aunt of Genie Mathers, Heather Dakin and Jackie Roper.

Born in France, Violette grew up with her siblings Eugenie, Peter and Nelly in Edinburgh, Scotland. Like her father, a Regimental Sergeant, she joined the war effort as a member of the Women’s Land Army. A city girl thrust into the country, Violette spent her days feeding chickens and milking cows, proving (for not the first nor the last time) that she was a bright, resilient and adaptable woman.

It was in Edinburgh that she had a chance meeting that would change her life. Lost in the streets of the city, Allister asked Vi for directions, and the rest, as they say, was history. Allister and Vi were married on June 29, 1945, and she arrived in Toronto the following summer.

Vi made her home in Stayner, where she lived for 68 years. She served her community in many ways, including as the First Lady of Stayner, a Brownies troop leader, a mother, a grandmother, a sister and a friend. While working at the MacDonald’s 9-11, she never failed to greet her customers with a smile…not surprising to those who loved and knew her. She was loved by all her family, who will remember her for her wit, brevity, love, and (lest we forget) her no-nonsense attitude.

She had a wonderful sense of humour and never ending love, which was evident any time you came to her home. She was always there, inviting you to put your feet up, rest your head, or share a story. Her Scottish brogue will forever be remembered, forever present in the hearts and minds of those special to her.

Our dear Nana (and Mum) will be forever loved, always missed, and never forgotten.

Friends will be received at the Carruthers & Davidson Funeral Home – Stayner Chapel on Saturday November 29, 2014 from 2 to 4 p.m. A graveside ceremony will be held at Stayner Union Cemetery in the summer. If desired, remembrances to Campbell House Hospice, Collingwood or the charity of your choice would be appreciated by Vi’s family. To sign the Book of Memories, log on to www.carruthersdavidson.com
