DILLON, George of Cobourg, Ontario

Posted by on September 7, 2018

George passed away peacefully Sunday September 2nd, at home, in his 94th year surrounded in love by his family. George was an outstanding husband to Dorothy (nee Johnson), father to Dennis (Sandra) and Michele (Ted), grandfather of Sarah, Mark, Michael Tyler, Ryan, Angelique, and Keegan,   great grandfather to Madison, Aurora, and Lily,  brother of Anne MacDonald,  uncle, and friend to everyone who had the opportunity to share their life with him. He was also the guy who could fix all things broken, an entertaining story teller, a self-taught musician, a passionate sportsman and coach, and above all, a selfless person who spent much of his retirement with Mom and his family, as well as  giving back to the community through volunteer work. He was fiercely proud of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who all have so many awesome funny memories they will be able to cherish forever. When one lives over 9 decades, they are able to see so many things change in the world and for Dad, he lived through the Great Depression, a World War and other wars, space exploration, the advance of technologies including machinery, transportation and computers. He had a wonderfully long run filled with many rich life experiences including: working in a coal mine in Scotland at age 14, a mental health nurse in an old Scottish castle, a gifted athlete in many sports, helping his parents and siblings emigrate to Canada, and of course, his almost 70 year relationship with our Mom.  His family can’t be more thankful for everything he has done for them and their families. He gave them the most valuable thing they could ever ask for…….love and time with his family. In the final months of George’s life, he was not able to enjoy his life to the same extent as he had earlier due to debilitating pain and declining health. Thankfully, he had Mom, Michele, Ted and others to lean on until it was time for him to let go and for his family to carry on his legacy. In his final days, he asked everyone to not be sad, but rather to smile and remember all the wonderful experiences  shared where we laughed, lived and learned from our time with him. And he added he will save us a place for each of us when we next see him again. George did not want any funeral service, internment or memorial, but he did want everyone to remember him by having a smile or laugh when you reflect on your memories of him. And if you want to best honour his memory, pay it forward by doing a small selfless act of kindness like holding the door open for someone, buying the person in the Tim Hortons line a coffee, or letting someone go ahead of you in line. And when you do, remember to smile and say “that’s for you George” as that’s how he lived his life. Mom will initially be spending some time away with her family as she adjusts to Dad’s passing. If you wish to share your condolences and memories with her, we’d ask you to please forward them to her email at dorothy.dillon@sympatico.ca and she will respond when she’s able to thank you for your well wishes. Many thanks to Dr. Essak, Dr.Kwok, Camille Lalonde NP, Jennifer and The V.O.N. Day Program, his P.S.W.’s especially Ken and Bev for all their care and compassion in his life journey.  Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.

PETERS, Phyllis Lydia of Etobicoke, Ontario

Posted by on September 7, 2018

Phyllis Lydia Peters, aged 85 of Toronto, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 2, 2018 after a long battle with diabetes and chronic kidney disease.  She was born in Ringwood, Ontario on September 26, 1932 to the late Frank & Thelma Breuls, and was predeceased by her brother Ross and sisters Gwendolyn and Arlene.

In 1954, Phyllis married the love of her life, Louis F. Peters, and after living several years in Toronto they found their ‘true home’ on the lake in Cobourg, Ontario at a place called “Ravensworth”.  It was there that Phyllis loved to host and entertain her family and friends in spectacular fashion.  Many fond memories of these fabulous and fun family gatherings are shared by her sons Brian (Cathy) and Frank (Rita), and her daughters Diane (Alan) and Donna (John) as well as her 11 grandchildren Jessica (Geoff), Melissa (Peter), Courtney, Samantha, Grant (Allia), Derek, Bradley, Brock, Sabrina, Aaron and Andrew, and first great-grandchild Theo.  The Christmas and Easter celebrations were always eagerly anticipated given the attention to detail that Phyllis gave to the festive decorations and meal planning.

It is obvious that Phyllis has left a legacy of loved ones and a devoted husband that will miss her dearly.

Phyllis requested that an intimate and private family gathering be held in her honour at a later date.  The family wishes to thank all of those who cared for her during her illness at the Bickle Centre in Toronto and the Dialysis Unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital.  Special thanks also goes out to Claudette Foo for her care and compassion.

If desired, and those wishing can make donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association in honour of Phyllis. We will always carry her memory in our hearts.  Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.

DILLON, Mary Ellen of Cobourg, Ontario

Posted by on September 4, 2018

After a beautiful and full life, and surrounded by her dear family, Mary Ellen Dillon (née Wlliams) passed away on Monday, September 3, 2018.

Mary Ellen was born in Toronto to Audrey and C.R. “Reg” Williams. She grew up and went to school in the city, but as a child learned to appreciate camping, swimming, and canoeing with her mother in Muskoka. After heading off to Europe as a young adult to work as an au pair, Mary Ellen was proud to return to Canada and become part of the University of Toronto’s first Bachelor of Nursing class.

It was at the U of T where she met Delanty Dillon, whom she later married. “Del” remained the love of her life. Del and Mary Ellen relocated to Del’s hometown of Cobourg, where Del went on to become a beloved high school teacher and head of the physical education department at the then newly opened CDCI East. Mary Ellen and Del remained active members of their social and St. Michael’s Church communities. They not only celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2009, but also were at Maple Leaf Gardens on May 2, 1967 to witness their revered Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup.

For Mary Ellen, the idea of “home” was always foremost in her heart. This was evident early in her career as a public health nurse when she did house-call checkups on newborn babies and their moms, initially in Toronto neighbourhoods for newcomers to the country, then for the Health Unit in Cobourg. Not surprisingly, she always seemed most relaxed and content when she was holding a baby in her arms, whether it was a patient, her own child, or one of her nine grandchildren. Her family remained anchored at the home she and Del established by the lake in Cobourg, no matter where in the country or the world her children ventured. Family and friends and neighbours were always welcomed into their home with humour and grace, curiosity and appreciation.

Following her career as a nurse, and after raising four children, she chose to enter the world of real estate sales, and this became a true devotion and delight. Starting with Frank Real Estate, she eventually became an Agent and Broker with Royal LePage. In a career touching five decades, Mary Ellen helped countless families find their dream homes in and around Cobourg and the Northumberland Hills. Highly principled, she valued honesty, communication, and integrity more than anything else in her business. By the time she had pounded in her last SOLD sign at the age of 80, she had developed many deep and lasting relationships with clients and colleagues alike.

Mary Ellen’s pace slowed slightly in recent years after the passing of her beloved Del, and subsequently because of some health concerns. It is a great testament to her care community that Mary Ellen remained bright, happy, and content in her own home. She was forever grateful to all her friends, neighbours, and faith community for their continual support and prayers. Special thanks to PSWs from Home Instead, St. Elizabeth, and Cardinal Nannies, and to the compassionate staff at the Northumberland Hills Hospital.

Left with warm feelings of deep appreciation and love are Mary Ellen’s four children: Mary Dillon (Louis Robitaille) of Lunenburg County, NS; Joe Dillon (Ruth Lillington) of Lindsay, ON; Joanne Dillon-McKay (Eric McKay) of Orléans, ON; and Michael Dillon (Moira Easton) of Shawnigan Lake, BC. Also feeling well-loved are Mary Ellen’s grandchildren: Madeleine and Marcel Robitaille; Tristan Lillington; Mark, Reta-Anne, Lauran, and Patrick McKay; and Jesanna and Séamus Dillon-Easton.

A funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at 10 a.m. at St. Michael’s Church 379 Division St, Cobourg, with interment at St. Michael’s Cemetery thereafter. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, Cobourg, 30 King Street East. In lieu of flowers and in recognition of Mary Ellen’s spirit, the family would appreciate a donation to Toronto Hospital for Sick Children ( www.sickkids.ca ), Northumberland Hills Hospital ( www.nhh.ca ), World Vision Canada ( www.worldvision.ca ), or an offering of a simple act of kindness.
