HALLIGAN, Ethel (nee Bird)

30–11-1913 to 04-08-2013

PICTURE OF ETHEL

 

On angel’s wings, a heavenly flight

The journey home, towards the light

A gentle wind blew across the land

Reaching out to take her hand

For on the winds, the angels came

Calling out our Mother’s name

Given angel’s wings, where might you fly

Lost between the wonder and why

To be an angel, one need not have wings

For the love of family is the greatest of things

       

 

With profound sadness, we announce that our Mother passed away peacefully at Trillium Ridge, in her 100th year, on Sunday, August 4th, 2013.  Beloved wife of the late John “Hap” Halligan (deceased 1969); daughter of the late William and Cora (nee Hayes) Bird.  Loving mother of June (Albert) Fabbri of Portsmouth; Doris (Gordon) Peterkin-MacLean of Oakville; Cora “Tootie” (Ron) Wilson of Kingston; Joan (Mike) Waller of Kingston and Barbara (Richard “Butch”) Winter of Elginburg.  Also survived by her daughter-in-law, Galiah “Gay” Halligan, 11 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and 12 great-great grandchildren as well as many relatives in both the extended Bird and Halligan families.  Predeceased by her only son, John “Sonny/Hap” Halligan; son-in-law Robert “Bob” Peterkin; granddaughter, Patricia (Patti) Peterkin-Rieben; her sisters and brothers-in-law, Carrie and Jack Anson and Annie and Othon Pappas.  Up until the age of 94, Mom was able to live independently in her own apartment.  She will be lovingly remembered as the matriarch of our family and for her strength and independent spirit.  Thankfully, she maintained her wonderful wit and keen sense of humour to the end.  A very special thank you to the entire staff at Trillium Ridge.  Everyone treated Mom with kindness, compassion and patience and were a source of comfort for her family.  Respecting Mom’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private interment will take place at a later date, officiated by long-time family friend, Reverend Oscar Simpson.

Until we meet again……

Hill Dudley formerly of Newboro

Posted by on April 23, 2013

HILL Major Dudley J.F. R.C.A.F. Retired.
Sept. 30 1928 – April 19 2013
Suddenly at Kingston General Hospital, on April 19, 2013.
Loving husband of the late Audrey M. Hill with whom he
celebrated 62 years of marriage. Beloved father of Dudley
(Cheryl), Gregory (Anna), and Susan Rogers. A kind and
generous grandfather to Megan, Michael, Derek, Jessica,
Jennifer, James, Jeffrey and Andrew and the delighted observer
of many great grand children. Survived by siblings
MargaretWoolfrey and Jack Hill (Joyce) both of Sydenham
and Susan Murphy (Neil) from Calgary. Predeceased by
sister Joan, son Mark, Graham and son in law Randy
Rogers.
Dudley was born in Ottawa of a home boy father, Jack Hill
from Luton, England and Violet Grace, a Londoner, who
was in Canada as a handmaiden to Lady Kingsmill.
Due to the depression the family returned to Luton, England
where Dudley excelled at many sports as well as
being a fine scholar. After school Dudley attended Loughborough
College where he again excelled at sports playing
Rugby, his first love and soccer for both university and city
teams. Upon graduating with a teaching certificate he enlisted
in the Royal Scots regiment of the British Army where
he further honed his sporting skills. In 1950 he married his
childhood sweetheart Audrey and deciding there was little
future in war ravaged Britain he returned to Canada with 17
dollars in his pocket and a mountain of optimism. His first
jobs included stocking shelves in a Dominion store, managed
the Quebec City YMCA, taught school in Shelbourne,
Nova Scotia. And finally joined the R.C.A.F. where he rose
to the rank of Major while training and coaching 1,000’s of
recruits from many countries. His many transfers included
London, Ontario; St. Jean, Quebec; Fontainebleau,
France; Comox, B.C. and finally the Royal Military College
here in Kingston. He will be remembered by hundreds of
students for his belief in enjoying sport purely for the pleasure
of it. One of his proudest achievements was the year
he coached RMC badminton team to a national title,
Queens University badminton team to a provincial title and
Sydenham High School badminton to a provincial title. He
also coached and played on numerous Armed Forces National
Championship teams in soccer, rugby, badminton
and volleyball as well as playing rugby for the Toronto Barbarians.
Finally at the age of 48 he retired from his beloved
rugby and with 25 years of service he also retired from the
Air Force.
He then sought out a second career and with his typical
optimism purchased a tired old fishing lodge in Newboro
Ontario, although he had barely fished a day in his life.With
the help of his tireless wife Audrey, sons Mark and Gregory
and daughter in law Anna, by force of will, and incredible
hard work, he transformed Stirling Lodge into one of Ontario’s
most successful fishing resorts. In later years, Stirling
Lodge purchased another water front property in
addition to opening Kilborn’s on the Rideau and just recently
the Stagecoach Inn restaurant.
His whole life he loved flower gardening and into his 80’s
he planted and cared for over 6,000 flowers on his properties
and throughout the village of Newboro. He also loved
travelling and toured every inch of Portugal and France,
often with family in tow. Wintering in Myrtle Beach he
changed his focus to golf where his unorthodox athletic
swing allowed him to shoot his age at 78 years old.
The Major will be fondly remembered by thousands of fishermen
from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York as well
as many other states, by his family and friends, as well as
his teammates and students across Canada.
As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be
made to the Newboro Beautification Committee, c/o Keitha
Burtch , Box 83, Newboro On K0G 1PO and would be
appreciated by the family.
A private family memorial will take place at a future date.
