FRANCES PATRICIA GREGORY
March 17, 1932 – June 1, 2017
So now faith, hope and love abide, these three: but the greatest of these is love
I Corinthians 13:13

A bright light has left us and now watches from above.

On June 1st Frances died at the Toronto East General Hospital as a result of complications from her tracheotomy. She leaves behind her sister Margaret and brother Gord. She will be missed by her many nieces and nephews. Frances was predeceased by her parents and brothers Bill, Jack, Bob, Don and Ken. She also left behind many many friends including Jane Hooey, Maureen Baskerville, Margaret Banning and Derek Rumball.

We would like to thank the following people who made Frances’s last 5 months in hospital as good as they could be. They are from Toronto East General Hospital Clerk Gail, Nurse Practitioner Laura and Respiratory Therapist Roger and Sunnybrook Hospital ICU and Critical Care Units.

Frances lived a full life. She was born in Thessalon, Ontario and attended residential school at the Belleville School for the Deaf. Her first job was in Ottawa. Frances eventually moved to Toronto and became involved in the Evangelical Church of the Deaf. At the same time she ran a group home for deaf women. When she took vacation it was to go the the Ontario Camp of the Deaf to teach campers about the Bible.

Frances was most proud of being the Deconness for the Evangelical Church of the Deaf for many years where she pastored to those who were sick and lonely. She advocated in the 70’s for a dedicated nursing home for the deaf. Frances lived I Corinthians 13 fully. Her faith was strong, her hope contiguous and her love never ending.

A celebration of life will take place on June 22 at the Bob Rumball Centre of the Deaf, 2395 Bayview Ave, Toronto at 10:30 a.m.. This was where she lived and loved.

MORE, Laszlo Leslie

Posted by on June 1, 2017

We are saddened to announce the death of Laszlo Leslie More, who passed away May 25th at age 81.  Laszlo was a kind and loving man who deeply cared for everyone he met.  He was an individual who had no acquaintances, only friends.  Perhaps his charisma and natural charm is what led him to his long career working as general manager in may hotels in the Caribbean.  It most definitely helped win the heart of his wife, Agnes.  While he is no longer suffering, the world is at a loss without his presence, and we can only hope he is in a better place watching over the world.  Laszlo left behind his wife, Agnes Timar More as well as their daughter, Kristina More and relatives and friends in Europe and the Caribbean.  He will be missed by many people across the world that he inspired and aided with arms wide open.  Laszlo will continue to live in our hears, and continue to impact our view on the world and people we met even after death.  The world will never be short of stories of Laszlo.  Special thanks to the nurses at the palliative care wing at RVH, and a special shout out to Dr. Shaver who met both patient and his family with nothing but warmth and kindness.  Messages of condolence can be left at www.peacefultransition.ca

Held her hand and whispered low

Come with me it’s time to go

The gate of heaven opened wide

The angels lined up side by side

Ronald Edward Shepherd

March 19, 1953 – May 22, 2017

Ronald Edward Shepherd. It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Ronald Edward Shepherd on May 22, 2017, at the age of 64, after his long battle with Dementia. He passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side at Victoria Village in Barrie. Ronald was born in Toronto on March 19, 1953 to Ruth and Richard Shepherd.

Beloved husband of Beverly Shepherd. Loving father of Nicole Adams (Rob), Ryan Shepherd and Jennifer Shepherd and proud Papa of Brodin. Cherished brother to Rick Shepherd (Sandra), Randy Shepherd (Pamela) and Raymond Shepherd (Victoria). Ronald will be dearly missed by many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Ruth and Richard Shepherd.

Ronald had a successful career as a business owner in the automotive industry and a passion for building beautiful cottages in Penetanguishene. The last cottage built by his hands was a log cabin that he was so very proud of. He was described by his family and friends as being an extremely caring and loving person who would light up a room the moment he walked in. He had a passion for life that was admired by all and his humour was one that left many in tears of laughter. His hobbies included boating, water skiing, jet skiing, knee boarding – pretty much any activity that involved water. He also loved his vintage cars, playing volleyball, and watching hockey. He was a die-hard Toronto Maple Leafs fan until the end. But, what he absolutely loved most in life was spending his spare time with family and friends whom he all treasured so dearly.

In honour of Ronald, his family is holding a celebration of life service at Barrie Southshore Community Centre on Friday June 9th from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. where family and friends will raise a glass in his memory.

Reflections

I rejoice in the life you lived,

Grateful for having shared it with you.

And was loved by you.

We shared so much, cared so much,

So many memorable times…

We’ve been through so much together.

How much sadder it would have been

If I’d never known you at all.

Even though you are gone,

You will always be part of me.

For you have left me so rich

With a “Precious Legacy of Memories”
