Richard C. Sheard

July 31, 1953 – December 4, 2017

Richard (Ric) Sheard passed away in the arms of his family in Barrie Ontario on the evening of December 4 2017. He was taken by cancer.  Ric will be greatly missed by his beloved wife of 46 years Judy Sheard, his son Eddie Sheard, his daughter Belinda Bailey and her partner Jim as well as Ric’s grandchildren Dylan, Chrystal, Robert, Jessica, Travis, Jesse and Hailey and his great granddaughter Justice. Ric was the beloved brother to Bob Wiggins and wife Nadia, Susan Sheard, Bobbie Sheard and wife Lauranne, Kathy Cooney and husband Jim and his brother-in-law Ed husband of Ric’s late sister Linda Aukema. Ric will also be missed by all of his nieces and nephews and friends.

Ric’s trucking handle was “The Dirty Dozen”. He drove truck all over North America and through the Rocky Mountains before they were safe to travel and drove the ice roads before they were safe enough to be on television.  He was fearless. He frequently provided aid and  comfort to accident victims and lost friends to mountain driving.  He trained others to drive truck and  helped set guidelines for safer trucking practices. The Dirty Dozen is blazing new trails now.

Ric lived life with joy and passion and accepted all that life brought him, whether good or bad. He loved completely. He travelled, he drove fast and well. He saw beauty in life. He laughed and sang. Ric left a mark on everyone he met. He encouraged everyone to find their strength and live life without regret.  He was larger than life. He was a protector, a teacher and a guide. A Gentle giant has fallen and his footprints can never be filled.

The Memorial will be held this Saturday December 9 at 2:00 pm followed by a luncheon at Orillia Kingdom Hall, 519 Laclie Street, Orillia.  There will also be a celebration of life in January 2018.  Details will be provided once they are confirmed.  In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Hospice Simcoe at www.hospicesimcoe.ca/donating/ or call 705-722-5995  Messages of condolence can be left at www.peacefultransition.ca

1934-2017, John Douglas Hines
With deep sadness, we wish to communicate the passing of “Doug” Hines – a long-time resident of the GTA, also known as Papa Smurf, Wee Dougie, Cowboy Doug and Big “D,” in his eighty-fourth year.  In his final moments, at Etobicoke General hospital, Doug experienced the profound joy of having his loving children, grandchildren and great grandchild by his side.   He will be greatly missed by his children Michael Hines, Catherine (Betsy) Hines, and James (Jamie) Hines; grandchildren, Sarah Hines, Alex Hines, Hudson Hines, Christen Latham, Rebecca Laffrade, James Wimpory, & Ashley Hines, and great grandchildren, Wynter Zuch, Charlie Laffrade, Carter Laffrade, and by countless extended relatives and friends.  Doug was pre-deceased by his parents Catherine Hines (nee McClelland) and John Hines, sister Marilyn “Sissy” Ball (the late Karl), and is survived by his sister, Jeanne Fry (Allan) and nephew Jeff. Doug loved his family with his entire being and had tremendous pride in his heart for his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  We are eternally grateful that Doug has left us a legacy of love.
Doug enjoyed the outdoors, but only from his horse or a convertible, or by the BBQ. His love of dogs and horses were his passions, along with his great love of sports – auto-racing, hockey and football, in particular. We will all miss those special times with him while he enjoyed and shared his passions & his great love of unique comments & profanity not just while watching sports but reading the paper and especially while driving.
Friends and family are invited to email celebratingdoughines@gmail.com for information regarding a Tapenade and Caesars celebration in toasting Doug on Saturday, November 25th, from 2pm-4pm. These were his favorite weekend specialties. Anyone who knew Doug, was also aware that he had an enormous passion for horses. In lieu of flowers, he would love donations be made in his name to Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue at www.whhrescue.com or please give to Pancreatic Cancer Canada to a personal page at http://donate.pancreaticcancercanada.ca/site/TR/DIY-FundraiseforUs/DIY-FundraiseforUs?px=1150296&pg=personal&fr_id=1296

Dear sister to Mary Geller. Elsie will be dearly missed by many nieces and nephews as well as her extended family and friends.

Born in Garland, Manitoba, Elsie spent her early years growing up on the farm. After finishing Secretarial School in Winnipeg Elsie married Raymond Goldrick and raised their 4 children in Ontario. She worked throughout these years and eventually found her calling at North York Public Library.

After Elsie’s first marriage ended she met and eventually married Lyle in 1981. After her battle with Ovarian Cancer, Elsie and Lyle retired early and moved to Novar to enjoy life, spending the next 35 years in very active retirement. They joined The Huntsville Square Dancing Club and spent many an evening and weekend dancing across northern Ontario. At every opportunity they took advantage of what life had to offer them and would often take spontaneous trips across Canada to see family members or to see something new. They spent 13 winters in Yuma, Arizona, enjoyed being an integral part of the Burks Falls Art Club, and they opened and ran a successful Bed and Breakfast and greeted guests from around the world. Elsie was diligent about keeping in touch with many of these guests and many years after Bunn’s Place closed, Elsie still enjoyed corresponding with past guests from all over the world.

For years, Elsie’s Essays were sent out at Christmas time to share details of the year with family and friends alike. As cancer survivors themselves, Lyle and Elsie gave back to the community by becoming volunteer drivers for the Cancer Society taking patients to appointments from Sudbury to Toronto and many points in between. Lyle used to say that he was the driver and Elsie was the bonus.

After losing Lyle in November 2016, Elsie found a way to continue without him by becoming immersed in all that Roberta Place had to offer.  Her strong will carried her through and she found comfort by making new friends and joining many of the activities including art classes.  Elsie’s friends enjoyed her wit, laughter and spunky spirit.

A tribute to Elsie and a celebration of life will be planned for next spring/summer where Lyle and Elsie’s ashes will be scattered together.  If you would like to be informed of the day and time of this celebration of life, please contact Jo-Anne Harris (ragrugs@hotmail.com) or Debby Goldrick (d.goldrick@yahoo.ca)

In keeping with Elsie’s wishes, cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, and in keeping with Elsie’s enjoyment of art, donations can be made to the Burk’s Falls Art and Crafts Club Art Centre, or The Lung Association as a tribute to her son Terence. Condolence cards may be sent to the family at 991 Anna Maria Avenue, Innisfil ON L9S 1V5.  Messages of condolence can be left at www.peacefultransition.ca

Mary Brown February 28, 1922 – October 7, 2017

Mary (Mom) passed away October 7th smiling and peaceful with her family at her side.
Predeceased by son Patrick and beloved husband Laurie, she will be forever loved and missed by her children Sheilagh (Don), Danny (Carroll) and Kelly, her grandchildren Choyal, Eric, Nicholas, Megan (Scott), Rachel and Laurie and great grandchildren Madison, Kamien and Westley.
Mom had a a very full and happy 96 years. Although she struggled with ALS these last few years her cheerfulness and determination never failed.
She shared her warmth, optimism and creativity with all those she came in contact with.
For many years she (along with our Dad) was an enthusiastic member of the Ladner community where she became the first curator of the Delta Museum and was a proactive member of the Kinsmen and K40. She was the instigator for many events, functions and celebrations for both community and family. There was always plenty of music, dancing and laughter in our home.
She moved on to work with seniors at Edmonds Senior Centre, then later in Surrey’s senior centre and again her planning and motivation made life a little bit more fun for all.
Mom cared deeply about family and worked at keeping our relatives close. Often included in our extended family were many of our friends who found a temporary second home in our house.
When the ALS began to accellerate she was given wonderful, thoughtful and compassionate care by Community Health nurses, home care staff, and friends. We are so grateful for that.
We especially want to thank Dr Burns for his special attention to mom.
There will be no funeral or memorial as requested by Mom. Should you wish, in lieu of flowers please donate to an ALS charity.

STOGRIN: Sally Joyce (nee Roschuk) of Selkirk Formerly of Chatfield, Manitoba

SALLY JOYCE STOGRIN (nee Roschuk) Peacefully on October 21, 2017 in her 76th year. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt. After an unexpected lengthy stay in the hospital Sally left us with some of her family by her side. She was comforted to the end. Pre deceased by her husband Frank Stogrin (2012), parents William and Sophie Roschuk, in-laws Anne and Nick Polny, and her sister Rosie Roy and infant brother Danny. She leaves behind her children William Stogrin (Jocelyn), Sophie Stogrin (Neil), Carol Stogrin, Patricia Hawke (Ward), Katherine Green (Joseph), Joseph Stogrin (Tanya) grandchildren Steven Stogrin, Sarah Desveaux (Darryl), Shannon Prejet (Donovan), John Green (Morgan), Scott Green (Kathryn), Shane Snow (Colette), Shawna Snow (Jason), Caitlyn Stogrin-Voisine (Ryan), Amanda Stogrin, Chris Stogrin, great-grandchildren Clare, Grace, Ruth, Tess, Dominic, and Keira. Sisters Mary Kosc, Stella Locosavich, Vicky Denton , Lorea Pleshka, and the Roschuk brothers John, Joe, Kazmir, Peter, several brothers/sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews and too many cousins to mention. Sally was born August 8, 1942 near Poplarfield Manitoba. She met and married her sweetheart Frank in 1957 and they then moved to Toronto for a few years, and then on to Mississauga in 1964. They worked and raised their family in the same house until 1992, as Frank’s uncle John passed away and they then moved to Chatfield Manitoba to live on the Stogrin farm. They lived a happy life during those semi-retirement years. Mom was unresponsive for several hours before she passed and suddenly talked, her last words were the ball is stuck, then she called out O72. Mom loved her Bingo, and spent many hours at the Poplarfield Hall, assisting with bingo fundraising events, socials, funerals, cleaning the hall and having many chuckles with her friends there. No one can argue Mom made the best Perogies ever! Mom did not want a formal service, for this reason cremation has taken place and a graveside burial will take place next summer near the family homestead. All are welcome to join us, bring a joke as Mom loved to laugh.
