PHINN, Anne Jane (Brown) of Winnipeg, formerly of Grand Bend and Ancaster, age 88

Posted by on April 13, 2017

PHINN:  Anne Jane Phinn, formerly of Grand Bend and Ancaster, died at the Victoria Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Thursday, April 13, 2017 due to complications with pneumonia.  Born on October 7, 1928 to Herb and Fernie (nee Chambers) Brown of London, Ontario.  Anne was predeceased by most of her family; husband Ted; daughter Ellen; son Roric Ryan; mother Fernie; father Herb; sister Joyce “Tigger” Dean and nephew Kelly.  She is survived by her son Tory and his wife Faye of Winnipeg, grandchildren Eli, Joel, Gen, Deanna and Derek, Krista and Adam and 3 great-grandchildren Malachi, Quinn and Laya.  Anne Jane was the epitome of strength and uniqueness, a brae bonny lass, with an unassailable optimism for life.  She had an unquenchable curiosity for all things.  Her love of animals was obvious as she fed all the stray cats, skunks, raccoons, crows and squirrels in the neighbourhood.  Her dog, Sable, has a large personality much like her own.  Due to the untimely death of her husband, Anne, at age 39, was left to raise 3 children on her own.  She gathered her strength and soldiered on with clarity and purpose.  Her pride was her farm, her sand pit operation, real estate and politics.  Her vibrancy and zest for life led her to become a crack shot, an avid golfer and tennis player.  She also loved poetry, a good glass, friends and the Toronto Blue Jays.  Anne decided to leave this world, hence the Jays poor start to the season and hopefully they can turn things around. Resting at the T. Harry Hoffman & Sons Funeral Home, Dashwood, on Monday, April 17, 2017 with visitation from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. followed by the service.  Interment Bethesda Cemetery, 542 Garner Rd. W., Ancaster at 2:30 p.m. If desired, memorial donations (payable by cheque) to the Humane Society or a charity of choice would be appreciated by the family.  Condolences at www.hoffmanfuneralhome.com

HANLEY: WILLIAM (BILL) FRANCIS OF SARNIA

hanleywebWILLIAM (BILL) FRANCIS HANLEY

January 30, 1944-July 3, 2016

Like a butterfly in flight,

You drifted to paradise,

A journey to the rainbows end,

                                         Leaving broken hearts to mend.

It’s with heavy hearts and great sadness we announce the passing of William (Bill) Hanley. Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend of many.

Bill was a dedicated and proud retiree of CSX Rail Transport. He always had exciting stories to share about his adventures on the railroad. He was a die hard NY Yankees fan and never missed a game. When he wasn’t watching the Yankees or Red Wings, Bill loved heading out to catch a Sarnia Sting game with his family. He was always quick with a joking remark and funny face, Bill liked to make us all laugh. He was loved by all who met him.

Bill is survived by his loving wife Jean (Fournie), daughter Darlene (Glen Bonham), son Dennis (Alexis Mulyk), son Mike (Jessica Fisher), siblings Bob and Wendy Hanley, Patty and Doug Kennington, many grandchildren Dustin and Nikki Barwise, Tasha Barwise, Collin, Mya, Ava, Noah, great grandchildren Bella and Bentley and many nieces and nephews Bill was predeceased by his parents William and Ann Hanley. He will be greatly missed by his loyal kitten Katie.

His family will forever cherish his gift of love, support and generosity. A loving and soulful man, who has always been there for us, Bill will be missed dearly, but forever in our hearts.

Please join Bill’s family in a celebration of his life that will be held at the Camlachie Community Centre, 6767 Camlachie Road, Camlachie on Sunday July 10, 2016 from 1-4pm. We invite friends and family to come to share fond memories and stories of Bill’s life and remember this great man.

Charitable donations can be made to Sarnia St. Joseph’s hospice.
