Obituary of BUXTON, Frank of Calgary, Alberta

Posted by on October 4, 2018

BUXTON, Frank
May 11th, 1958 – August 3rd, 2018

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Frank Brent Buxton announces his passing at the age of 60, on August 3, 2018. Frank will be deeply missed by his beloved wife of 40 years Debbie; their three children Heather, Brad, and Russell; and his two brothers, Bert and Rob. Frank was pre-deceased by his parents; mother Myrtle “Pat” (Langen) Buxton, and father Frank Buxton who passed a year ago almost to the day of his son.

Frank was born of a generation that took great pride in their vocation. He was dedicated to his work and felt it very much identified him. He worked at Bow Valley Square for 33 years working his way up to Chief Engineer. Frank was gifted not only with a great work ethic but was also mechanically minded, and handy around the house fixing up odds and ends including the family vehicles. He also spent much time on his lawn meticulously watering it, leaving behind only the straightest mowing strips and perfect trimming. His yard was the envy of the neighbourhood and likely many golf courses too.

Frank played as hard as he worked and was a passionate athlete. He actively fostered this love of sports with his children and took turns coaching each of them. He coached the boy’s baseball and hockey teams, and his daughter in softball. He played organized hockey since he was a teenager. He played in an old-timers league for years as a member of the “Raiders” and most recently for the “Flaming As”. Frank always wore the number 9 (and so did his daughter). Although he loved the game of hockey, he had a lifelong passion with the sport of golf, which started in his youth when he and his friends would hop over fences to secretly play endless free rounds. Monday nights were reserved for the Men’s Night at Blue Devil Golf Course; however, his wife was his usual partner. Despite all this time on the rinks and greens Frank also managed to train for and race in 3 marathons with his wife.

It is difficult to convey in a few short lines just how much Frank was loved and how deeply he will be missed, the indelible stamp he has left on the lives of those near and dear to him, and the void he leaves behind.

Celebration of Life will be held at Carnmoney Golf Club (44001 Dunbow Road East, DeWinton, Alberta T1S 4X7) on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. Please join Frank’s family for some food and drink (including cold cans of Canadian) to remember him. You are encouraged to share any photos or stories you might have.

Obituary of HUMPHRIES: MARY ELIZABETH of Lunenburg, NS Formerly of Toronto, Ontario

Posted by on April 6, 2018

images-4

It is with great sadness that the family of Mary Elizabeth Humphries, 92, of Lunenburg, announces her death on Thursday, February 22, 2018, at the Halifax Infirmary, Halifax.?? Born in Evanston, Illinois, she was the daughter of Andrew William and Elizabeth Holbrook (Marsales) Murdison.

In the course of her long life, Mary was an entrepreneur, scientist, educator, consumer advocate, broadcaster, author, volunteer, frustrated gardener, cat lover, singer, family historian and one of nature’s great enthusiasts. She never stopped learning new things, and was optimistic, curious and adventurous.

She grew up in Thornhill, Ontario, the youngest of four children. A brilliant student, Mary obtained both her B.A. and M.A. from University College, University of Toronto on full scholarships. She married English-born Michael Humphries in 1949, and became a specialist in textile and dye chemistry for Croy Knitting Mills.

An activist as well as a scientist, Mary helped shape the new Consumer Association of Canada from the 1950s and she broadcast her own weekly national consumer program on CBC Radio in the ‘60s. Mary taught textile science at Seneca College in Toronto for over 25 years. She was a Fellow of the Institute of Textile Science and a valued committee and board member for groups including the Metric Commission, Costume Society of Ontario, Jane Austen Society, Bata Shoe Museum, UC Book Sale, Maritime Concert Opera and many others. She made many, many friends through her professional and volunteer work.

She was an entrepreneur, writing and self publishing her own textbooks and swatch sets, which were eventually published by Prentice-Hall internationally and became some of the standard works in the field. She would definitely want us to remind you at this point that “a fibre is not a fabric”!

Mary is survived by her daughter, Nina Scott-Stoddart (David Mosey), Lunenburg; son Thomas (aka Chi) (Christa), Lahr, Germany; grandchildren, Dennis (Lydia) and Kai (Miriam Rother), Germany as well as her sister Jessie Wesley of Ontario and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sister Lucy Noble, her brother Andrew Murdison, her niece Heather Parekh and her nephew William Noble.

We would all like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the medical staff, especially the nurses, at South Shore General and the Halifax Infirmary, for their humane kindness and compassion , not only for Mary but for us.

In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Second Story Women’s Shelter in Lunenburg or SHAID Tree Animal Shelter of Lunenburg County would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements were by Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home in Lunenburg.

Posted by on February 22, 2018

TOMPKINS, CORKY – Clitheroe (Corky) Wellington Tompkins at the age of 87 fell asleep in death to await a resurrection to a paradise earth. He loved this hope and talked about it to anyone with a listening ear. Knowing Corky meant you knew of his favourite place on earth, Biscotasing. Born and raised in the ‘bush’ with endless tales of exploration, hard work, cutting ice from the lake and friendships. He made sure his family experienced the north and encouraged our love of it. He also spent time working in the mines at Inco as a Millwright and also as a Stationary Engineer in chemical valley. Corky loved to talk shop and had an incredible memory of every incident at work.

He loved to brag that he had 18 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren. Corky was a generous and kind person. So much so that it kept his heart strong many years after ‘the best before date’.

Obituary of ST-HILAIRE-ADAM: Aimé-Jean de Calgary

Posted by on February 12, 2018

Un oiseau de plus volera dans le ciel… Aimé-Jean St-Hilaire-Adam C’est lundi le 22 janvier 2018, qu’Aimé-Jean St-Hilaire-Adam, professionnel et sauteur élite de wingsuit (combinaison ailée), a fait son dernier vol, l’amenant accidentellement vers l’éternité. À l’âge de 27 ans, il est décédé lors de sa dernière compétition internationale en Californie. Il laisse derrière lui ses parents, Marius Adam et Martine St-Hilaire, sa sœur Floralie ainsi que plusieurs parents et amis. Aimé-Jean cherchait toujours à se dépasser et atteignait ses objectifs. Du surf à la planche à neige, en passant par le kayak de rivière blanche, c’est là qu’il vivait ses plus belles émotions. Mais, par-dessus tout, il aimait voler. On l’imagine avoir quitté cette vie très heureux: quelques heures avant l’accident, il nous annonçait avec fierté qu’il s’était mérité un podium.

Aimé-Jean aimait les gens et les gens le lui rendaient bien. C’est dans cet esprit rassembleur que sa famille invite tous ceux qui l’ont connu à lui rendre un dernier hommage au Complexe Funéraire de la Petite-Nation Shields Berthiaume Inc., 101, rue Principale, St-André-Avellin, Qc, J0V 1W0, (819) 983-6616, le mercredi 14 février 2017 de 15 h à 19 h. Le service religieux aura lieu en l’église St-Félix-de-Valois de Chénéville le samedi 17 février 2018 à 11 h 30.

Pour offrir vos condoléances par télécopieur, composez le (819)983-6865 ou visitez notre site web au www.mfshieldsberthiaume.ca.
