A celebration of his life will be held at the Stroud Curling Club lounge, 7883 Yonge Street, Innisfil on Saturday, April 8th from 2 -4 p.m.

Julia Patricia Coey – 1977 – 2017 

Although our darling girl left us at the far too young age of 39, she accomplished much in her short life. 

She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile which would light up a room, her sunny disposition, her kindness and empathy, her ability to not only make but also keep lifelong friendships wherever she went and her love of creatures, great and small.

 She will be forever missed by all who knew her, but especially by her beloved Greg and her heartbroken parents, Lesley and Jim.

 We would like to thank the doctors and staff at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie for their care and kindness and, most especially, the staff and volunteers at Hospice Simcoe who enfolded Julia with love and compassion during her final days.  They are all truly amazing and dedicated.

There will be a celebration of Julia’s life in the spring.  If you wish, donations in Julia’s memory can be made to Toronto Wildlife Centre or Hospice Simcoe, Barrie

LUSIGNAN, George Bruce

In honor of one of the greatest men to walk this planet, it is with tremendous sadness to share with you our loss of George Bruce Lusignan who quietly passed on Thursday January 12th, 2017 at Hospice Simcoe located in Barrie, Ontario. George’s life may have unjustly ended as one more victim to cancer however it began on March 5th, 1947 with the love of his Mother Grace Ure and Father George Lusignan Sr.  as George became a brother to sisters Janet, Carol and Lynn.

George married and fathered two children; George Jr. and Bridgit and moved forward in life to become a successful mechanic and continued his work into semi-retirement with Muskoka Auto Parts in Huntsville Ontario.

On june 30th 1989 George married Linda MacLeod and enthusiastically took on his role as a loyal husband and devoted dad to Darlene Corneil (Greg) and Shauna Glasgow (Matt). George also leaves behind six grandchildren that love and miss him dearly; Spencer, Sabrina, Jamie, Greer, Teagon and Everitt.

George’s love of sports helped forge a lasting bond with his son George Jr. who tragically passed on January 16th, 2003, condemning George to grieve quietly for the rest of his life. May they both rest peacefully together once again. Spread your wings and soar and we will look for your spirit in the sky.  Messages of condolence can be left at www.peacefultransition.ca
