Orca Shirley Coyle (née Shultz) of Leamington, Ontario

Posted by on January 28, 2014

CoyleOrcaPaperOrca Shirley Coyle (née Shultz)

Orca Coyle passed away peacefully at home with family at her side on Sunday, January 26, 2014 at the age of 83.

Orca grew up in Novar and Tweed in Ontario.  She married “C. B.” Bruce Coyle of Tillsonburg in 1950, and settled in Leamington, Ontario where they built a wonderful life in the community, while maintaining strong family ties throughout the Shultz and Coyle clans. Orca was predeceased by her young son Robert in 1959 and her beloved husband Bruce in 1991, and more recently, by her much-loved siblings Ioma and Orm.

She is survived by five children: Douglas (Valerie Redpath), Judy-lynn (Dennis Hastings), Shirley (Bob Beal), Sharon (Benoit Méthot), and David (Lucy Rosa).  She will be fondly remembered by her 13 Grandchildren:  Emily, Karen, Christopher, Laura, Sarah, Max, Ariane, Félix, Julie, Cooper, Reid, Sydney and Parker, as well as 3 great-grandchildren: Madeleine, Cole and Sophie.  Orca is also survived by two dear sisters, Irma and Yvonne, and sister-in-law, Mary-Lou Coyle.

She was a loving and beloved wife, mother and friend, an avid collector of family history, a baker and pastry chef, a caregiver extraordinaire, a bridge player and a hostess for annual dinners and gatherings.   The family cottage at Cole Lake, near Godfrey, ON, kept all of us connected to her Homestead roots, and became the backdrop for wonderful adventures and memories.  Orca delighted her family by swimming in the ocean in a wet suit on her 82nd birthday in Sept-Iles, QC, and participating regularly in classes at the Sherk Recreation Complex- which also led to a 3-friend book club dubbed “book pool” that brought her great delight and friendship.

Always interested in architecture and buildings, Orca designed the family home addition completed in 1967 with a forward-thinking open-concept kitchen and family room that became the heart and hearth of the Coyle family, neighbours and friends over the years.  And in the end, it was in that same family room that Orca spent her final days, with the familiar view of the backyard trees and birds, and the support of her family and friends.

The family wishes to thank the many medical professionals who cared for “Mrs. C” during her treatment and her more recent palliative care, including:  Dr. Ross Moncur, Dr. Kanjekkel, Windsor Regional Cancer Centre, CCAC, Bayshore and Revera and Paramed.

Visiting at Reid Funeral Home & Reception Centre, 14 Russell Street, Leamington (519-326-2631) on Wednesday, January 29th from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm.  A celebration of Orca’s life will be held at the funeral home on Thursday, January 30th at 11 a.m.  Interment will follow at Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery.  Donations in lieu of flowers may be made by cheque to the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation. Family and friends are invited to share their words of comfort and remembrance or make a charitable contribution at www.reidfuneralhome.ca
