DESHANE: Wes of London

Posted by on September 18, 2017

DESHANE: Wes….

Suddenly but peacefully at his residence on Saturday, September 16, 2017, seven days before his 79th birthday. Wes lived with enormous passion and panache, belying his accountancy background. Passions included jazz, antiquing, cooking, shopping for the finest gourmet ingredients, cars and collecting anything that appealed to his impeccable eye. One of his earliest prizes was convincing his darling Louise to become his wife. He’d often say, “I married an older woman – one year and six days difference”. They shared over half a century and produced the next treasure of their life together, their son Peter. Wes’ panache stretched from his acumen in business dealings to the way he set up a table with perfectly polished goblets. His leadership on numerous charitable boards and his generosity in giving influenced many in London to follow suit. Wes DeShane had an enormous heart which ironically did him in as he bent down to confirm the bottle count in his wine cellar. Wes leaves many friends and admirers along with his sister, Noreen DeShane who shared his love of their family cottage on Long Point and his favourite niece, Wendy Sperry. His spirit will remain in our hearts forever. He is survived by his wife, Louise DeShane, his son Peter DeShane and his wife Jen. Loving grandpa of Barron and Raphael. Dear brother of Noreen DeShane and brother-in-law of Gilbert Sperry and his wife Joyce. Cherished uncle of Kathy Sperry and her partner Mark, Wendy Sperry and her partner John, Deborah Sperry, Greg Sperry and his wife Kim and their families. Friends will be received by the family from 7-9 pm on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at the A. Millard George Funeral Home, 60 Ridout Street South, London. The celebration of Wes’ life will be held in the funeral home chapel on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 1 pm.

Posted by on September 8, 2017

JOLDERSMA, Trudy (Geertrui), néé Beldman….

Passed away peacefully in London, Ontario at the age of 95. Trudy was born in Holten, The Netherlands, in 1922, and immigrated to Canada in 1950. There she met and in 1951 married her husband John; her sorrow at his early death coloured the rest of her life. In contrast to many of her generation, she worked outside of the house for many years, primarily as visiting homemaker for the VON; she was also secretary of Hamilton Christian High School, for which in 1973 the students dedicated their yearbook to her. For all of her 95 years she was a crusader for various causes and always had keen opinions about the world around her. During the course of her Canadian life she lived in many places and made friends in all of them: Winnipeg, Jarvis, Hamilton, London, Calgary, Sarnia, Strathroy, Grimsby, and finally London again. Trudy was predeceased by her beloved husband John Joldersma in 1966, her late-life special friend Harold Kampen in 2009, and her son-in-law Alan MacDonald in 2010. She is survived by her four children, Martin, Hermina, Clarence (Grace), Trudy (Bill), eight grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren, as well as her sister Miene (Barend) Kobes, her sisters-in-law Neeltje Beldman and Mies Beldman, her brothers-in-law Jan Wolters and Henry Joldersma, and many nieces and nephews.
