McKeage: Dawn Victoria

Posted by on April 8, 2014

Dawn Victoria (Vicki) Mckeage, was a beautiful person, wife, sister, mother, grandmother, auntie, confidant and friend to us all.  She will be sadly missed and forever remembered.

Unfortunately Vicki lost her battle with Cancer on April 5, 2014.  She passed away peacefully at home with her husband, Kevin Mckeage faithfully at her side along with her brother Chris Dutfield and her close friends Joanne Peace and Patricia Henderson who stayed with her in her final moments. She was surrounded by loved ones and the thoughts and prayers of many who have visited, called, Facebooked, and emailed.  She appreciated each and every message and thought that were sent her way.

Vicki is predeceased by her mother Madelaine Dawn Myles and survived by her brothers Chris and Kevin Dutfield, and daughter Dawna Martinez-Pacini.

She will be sadly missed by many including: Her granddaughters Angelina, Eva, and Stella Martinez-Pacini who adored their grandmother and loved nothing more than to spend time with her crafting and adventuring; her daughter and son in law Dawna and Alfredo Martinez-Pacini; Her loving father in-law Tom Mckeage, sister in-law Brenda Prier, and beloved niece and nephew Shawn and Crystal Prier; her beautiful Katie, her lifelong friend Natalie Catalano who spent so many days with Vicki keeping her spirit up, her amazing neighbour and friend Miss Betty, her aunts and uncles and cousins who she loved dearly, and of course her fluffy kitty Girly who is a little lost without her and will keep Kevin company now. There are very clearly so many people who loved Vicki, too many to name.

Mom loved laughter, colour and nature, and in particular butterflies. Her soul has finally broken free from its cocoon, and she is finally free like the butterflies she so admired. I have faith that she will be guided by the cheerful and loving faces of her mother, grandparents and her dear friends who passed far too young before her. And as she did here on earth she will surely bring life to the party wherever she may go. Mom, we love you, we miss you, and you will forever be a part of us; If I could save time in a bottle, I’d save every day till eternity passes away just to spend them with you too Mom. Love you. A Celebration of Vicki’s life will be held at the McKeage residence (49 Main St. Beaverton) on Saturday April 12, 2014 from 1P.M- 4P.M.  If so desired memorial donations to the Durham Region Transportation Services for cancer drivers can be made at the family home on Saturday or online at www.manganfuneralhome.com or by calling 705-426-5777.

Spencer, Eileen Anita (née McColm)

 

It is with deep sadness but also a comforting sense of peace that the family of Eileen Anita Spencer of Beaverton, Ontario announces her passing at age 90 at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital from complications of chronic myelogenous leukemia on Friday, January 24, 2014. Eileen was born in Oshawa General Hospital on August 23, 1923. She was the eldest of four children of the late Joseph Scott McColm and Anne Brown Burton McColm of Gibbons Street, Oshawa. Eileen was predeceased by her brother Douglas Burton McColm (2004) and sister Shirley Madge MacLeod (2013) and is survived by her brother Clifford Scott McColm (Joan) of Ottawa. Eileen was predeceased by her husband Edward Charles (“Ted”) Spencer (1989). She is survived by her sons John Charles (Cynthia) of Toronto, Douglas Scott (Dina) of Kincardine and Craig Clifford of Kemptville, numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren and nieces and nephew. Eileen moved to Beaverton in 1946 when her husband purchased a business in the village. She spent 20 years as a homemaker and community volunteer before joining the staff of Lakeview Manor in the Region of Durham in 1967. She retired from her position as Assistant Administrator in 1988 in order to devote her time to tending her much-admired gardens on Victoria Avenue, to travelling, to cheering on her beloved Blue Jays, and to continuing her community work. A lover of Canadian literature and theatre, Eileen always could be found with a book at her side or planning another theatre outing with friends. Eileen was a loyal reader of the Toronto Star and often clipped stories and reviews to share with others. In addition to her many interests, Eileen was an avid follower of Canadian politics, ever ready to discuss the issue of the day. Eileen managed her own home in Beaverton until the day she died. The family would like to thank the team of superb health-care providers, supporters, friends and neighbours who made it possible for Eileen to fulfill her wish to remain in the house she had called home for 66 years. Notable among them are her family physician Dr. D. Frances McCordic, her hematologist Dr. Deven Bhatt, caregivers Evelyne, Barbara, Stephanie and Elaine, household supporters Katie, Claire, Roy and Nancy and her many wonderful friends, especially Maxine Tierney, Sheila Radmann and the incredible Diane Sutherland whose friendship brought so much joy and comfort to Eileen. In accordance with her wishes, Eileen will be inurned next to her husband at the Old Stone Church Cemetery, Beaverton, Ontario, at a private family gathering. Online condolences are welcome at www.manganfuneralhome.com
