LETTS, Audrey of Wiarton and formerly of Cochrane and Georgetown

Posted by on April 15, 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

LETTS, Audrey of Wiarton, and formerly of Cochrane and Georgetown, Ontario passed away at Gateway Haven Nursing Home on Saturday, April 13, 2013 in her 89th year.  Cherished mother of Joseph Letts (Brenda) of Nashua, New Hampshire and Geoffrey Letts (Sandy) of Justin, Texas.  Beloved Grandmother of Briana Meikle, Christopher Letts (Christina) and Chantal Letts.  Audrey will be missed by her sisters Ruby Dick of Seba Beach, Alberta, Betty (Alex) Williams of St. John’s, Newfoundland, brother Barry (Pauline) Hynes and sister-in-law Rowena Hynes of Clarenville, Newfoundland as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.   She was predeceased by her husband Robert, parents Joseph and Dorothy (nee Walker) Hynes, brothers Harry and Ivan, brother-in-law Frank Dick and sister-in-law Genevieve Hynes.

Audrey’s life was one of service to her family, friends and in many cases strangers and the less fortunate.

During World War Two, Audrey proudly served as an Army nurse and she would be sure you knew she served as a Newfoundlander!.  After the war and along with her husband they owned and operated a nursing home for many years in Blenheim, Ontario.  Moving to Georgetown in 1959 she managed the Heather Nursing Home and subsequently was a floor nurse at Peel Manor in Brampton.  Upon retiring she returned to Newfoundland briefly before she and Bob returned to Guelph, Ontario as the property managers of The Willows.

Stories abound about her generosity, from personally paying back rent for families in her buildings to caring for the indigent in her nursing home.  A visiting priest once asked her why she would care for someone that couldn’t pay?  Her reply, “If I didn’t do it, who would?”  His reply was simply, “Your reward will be in Heaven Mrs. Letts.”

Today, she has claimed her eternal reward.

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the management and staff of Gateway Haven Long Term Care for their care and compassion over the years.

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Audrey will be held at a later date at Saint George’s Anglican Church in Georgetown. Interment will take place beside her husband Robert in Greenwood Cemetery, Georgetown.  Arrangements entrusted to the GEORGE FUNERAL HOME, Wiarton.  Donations made to Friends of Gateway Haven Nursing Home of Wiarton would be appreciated by the family as expressions of sympathy.  Condolences may be sent to the family through www.georgefuneralhome.com

SCOTT, Nancy of Wiarton – Nancy was born in Wiarton 65 years ago to parents Doris (Given) and Harry Lisk.  She spent 45 years of her life trying to teach, guide and keep her children Chris, Tammy (Ken) Brown and Jenny (Bill) Jones in line, as well as spending the last two decades departing great wisdom to her grandchildren Samantha, JD, Victoria, Karissa, Emma and Owen.  When once asked how she managed to do all this, she simply replied ‘somebody has to do it.’  Even in her younger years she had her hands full trying to keep her younger siblings out of trouble; Ron (Belinda) Lisk, Cathy (Mac) Gibson and Karen (Larry) Thomas – although she did admit that sometimes she was unsuccessful in that effort.  Her teachings to be strong, determined and fight with all your strength until the very end also extended to her husband Ivan, Aunts Bev Given and Elda Given, many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and cousins.

 

A service to honour and celebrate Nancy’s life will be held at St. John’s United Church, Berford Street, Wiarton on Friday, April 5, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. with visitation 1 hour prior to the service.  Spring interment Colpoy’s Bay Cemetery.  Arrangements entrusted to the GEORGE FUNERAL HOME, Wiarton.  In lieu of flowers, donations made to Bruce Peninsula Hospice would be appreciated by the family as expressions of sympathy.  Condolences may be sent to the family through www.georgefuneralhome.com
