Obituary of Donald Ross McIntyre (Langley, Edmonton, Winnipeg)

Posted by on October 19, 2018

Donald Ross McIntyre

June 14,1932 – October 13, 2018

Don was born in Morden, Manitoba to Alfred Woodward McIntyre and Isabel Valentine McIntyre (nee Macey). He grew up on the border where his father worked. As a small boy he developed his life long love affair with cars as he learned the makes and models of all the cars that passed through the border each day.

Don graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelors of Arts and spent most of his career working as a claims manager in the insurance industry. He married the love of his life and his best friend Dorothy Ann Redfearn in 1957 and set about raising his family in Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton. In 1988 he was transferred to Langley BC where he retired. Don and Dorothy loved to travel. After Dorothy died in 2013, Don took a solo trip to Tuktoyaktuk in February, 2015 at the age of 82 as a fundraiser for the cancer society.  

Don and Dorothy’s lives were characterized by the friends they made in every decade and every community where they lived. Don still kept in contact with his university fraternity friends, the couples they regularly gathered with in Edmonton and all the friends he made in churches and business throughout the years. 

Don considered himself the most fortunate of men, blessed with 56 years of love with his wonderful wife, Dorothy and another couple of years of love with Myrna Huggan, his dear partner for the last years of his life, with Myrna visiting him every day as Don spent his last days in the hospital and finally the hospice.

Don leaves behind his sister, Elizabeth (Lynn), sons Matthew and Cameron (Darlene), daughter Kathleen (Phil), grandchildren Arica (Bryce), Kate, Larisa, Joshua, Emily (Josh), Nathan Ross, Joanna, Xiomara, Benjamin, Jacob, and great grandchildren Cooper and Michael.

Many thanks to Reverend Kelly Duncan and Reverend Laurie Deacon for their care and attentiveness to Dad in his last weeks, and to the staff at Crossroads Inlet Hospice and the Royal Columbian Hospital who were unfailingly kind and compassionate.

A Memorial Service will be held for Don on Wednesday, Oct 24th at 7 pm at the Parish of St. George in Fort Langley  (9160 Church St., Fort Langley, BC, V1M 2R6).

Obituary of ELLIOTT: Ann Elliott of West Vancouver, B.C.

Posted by on September 30, 2018

Elliott, Ann
March 27, 1940 – September 22, 2018

Ann Elliott (Elizabeth Ann Mattick), age 78, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on September 22, 2018 in West Vancouver B.C. She was born on March 27, 1940 in Cordova Bay, Victoria, B.C. to Bill and Joey Mattick (Whilhemine Alice Clarke).

Ann’s choice of pharmacy as a career and her quick rise to managing drug stores made her a role model for women. She graduated with a Pharmacy Degree from the University of British Columbia in 1961. After graduating, Ann gained certification and practiced as a pharmacist in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec. In the late 60s she began to manage stores. This culminated in the 1980s and 90s with her successfully running a large retail store, Shoppers Drug Mart in Pacific Centre in downtown Vancouver.

Ann was as dedicated to her family as she was to her work. Her family appreciated that even after many fifty plus hour work weeks she kept them well dressed and made sure they sat down together to eat delicious, beautiful, made from scratch dinners.

Ann enjoyed travelling throughout her life. She found as much pleasure in planning the trip as the experience itself, especially her once in a lifetime trips to Botswana, the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu. Hawaii was a favourite destination where she went many times to play golf and feel the warm wind.

Ann’s strength and determination were evident during her long battle with breast cancer. Even while undergoing treatment she continued to do the things she loved, including seaside walks, tending flowers and playing golf. A highlight was when she scored her one and only “hole in one” on the 4th hole at the Cordova Bay Golf Course, which sits on the land her father farmed. Ann is survived by John Elliott, her loving husband of 57 years, her daughter Lea (Scott), her granddaughters, Mika and Claire, her sister Sara (Buzz) and her niece Kate (Rob) and her nephew Mike (Ashleigh). Her family appreciates the peace of mind and compassion that Canada’s Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) legislation provided Ann when her illness became untreatable and unbearable. There will be no service as per her request, but if you’d like to take a moment to remember Ann: look out at a beautiful view, take a bite of dark chocolate and lift a glass of prosecco.

Obituary of DILLON, Mary Ellen of Cobourg, Ontario

Posted by on September 4, 2018

After a beautiful and full life, and surrounded by her dear family, Mary Ellen Dillon (née Wlliams) passed away on Monday, September 3, 2018.

Mary Ellen was born in Toronto to Audrey and C.R. “Reg” Williams. She grew up and went to school in the city, but as a child learned to appreciate camping, swimming, and canoeing with her mother in Muskoka. After heading off to Europe as a young adult to work as an au pair, Mary Ellen was proud to return to Canada and become part of the University of Toronto’s first Bachelor of Nursing class.

It was at the U of T where she met Delanty Dillon, whom she later married. “Del” remained the love of her life. Del and Mary Ellen relocated to Del’s hometown of Cobourg, where Del went on to become a beloved high school teacher and head of the physical education department at the then newly opened CDCI East. Mary Ellen and Del remained active members of their social and St. Michael’s Church communities. They not only celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2009, but also were at Maple Leaf Gardens on May 2, 1967 to witness their revered Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup.

For Mary Ellen, the idea of “home” was always foremost in her heart. This was evident early in her career as a public health nurse when she did house-call checkups on newborn babies and their moms, initially in Toronto neighbourhoods for newcomers to the country, then for the Health Unit in Cobourg. Not surprisingly, she always seemed most relaxed and content when she was holding a baby in her arms, whether it was a patient, her own child, or one of her nine grandchildren. Her family remained anchored at the home she and Del established by the lake in Cobourg, no matter where in the country or the world her children ventured. Family and friends and neighbours were always welcomed into their home with humour and grace, curiosity and appreciation.

Following her career as a nurse, and after raising four children, she chose to enter the world of real estate sales, and this became a true devotion and delight. Starting with Frank Real Estate, she eventually became an Agent and Broker with Royal LePage. In a career touching five decades, Mary Ellen helped countless families find their dream homes in and around Cobourg and the Northumberland Hills. Highly principled, she valued honesty, communication, and integrity more than anything else in her business. By the time she had pounded in her last SOLD sign at the age of 80, she had developed many deep and lasting relationships with clients and colleagues alike.

Mary Ellen’s pace slowed slightly in recent years after the passing of her beloved Del, and subsequently because of some health concerns. It is a great testament to her care community that Mary Ellen remained bright, happy, and content in her own home. She was forever grateful to all her friends, neighbours, and faith community for their continual support and prayers. Special thanks to PSWs from Home Instead, St. Elizabeth, and Cardinal Nannies, and to the compassionate staff at the Northumberland Hills Hospital.

Left with warm feelings of deep appreciation and love are Mary Ellen’s four children: Mary Dillon (Louis Robitaille) of Lunenburg County, NS; Joe Dillon (Ruth Lillington) of Lindsay, ON; Joanne Dillon-McKay (Eric McKay) of Orléans, ON; and Michael Dillon (Moira Easton) of Shawnigan Lake, BC. Also feeling well-loved are Mary Ellen’s grandchildren: Madeleine and Marcel Robitaille; Tristan Lillington; Mark, Reta-Anne, Lauran, and Patrick McKay; and Jesanna and Séamus Dillon-Easton.

A funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at 10 a.m. at St. Michael’s Church 379 Division St, Cobourg, with interment at St. Michael’s Cemetery thereafter. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, Cobourg, 30 King Street East. In lieu of flowers and in recognition of Mary Ellen’s spirit, the family would appreciate a donation to Toronto Hospital for Sick Children ( www.sickkids.ca ), Northumberland Hills Hospital ( www.nhh.ca ), World Vision Canada ( www.worldvision.ca ), or an offering of a simple act of kindness. Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.

Obituary of ALBERT EDWIN SCHNELL, C.C.C., Hon. B.A.S.

Posted by on August 29, 2018

August 9, 1935 – August 23, 2018

With heavy hearts, we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our dear husband and father, Albert Edwin Schnell, at home at the age of 83. He was a gentle and loving pillar of strength and will be missed immensely by Rosmarie, his beloved wife of 57 years, son Andre, and daughter Marion. Albert was predeceased by his loving parents Paul and Franziska Schnell. He will be missed greatly by extended family in Switzerland including his dear brothers Paul (Erika) and Hans (Liselotte), brother-in-law Eugen (Christa), and nieces Daniela (Christian), Eliane (Markus), Carole (Rolf), Viviane, and their sons and daughters.

Albert was extraordinarily caring, compassionate and generous to all. He was a man of strong faith in God and relied heavily on the Lord. Albert was an active member of Yorkminster Park Baptist Church in Toronto and, prior to that, The Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul in Montreal. House of Compassion of Toronto was also dear to his heart.

Born and raised in Zurich, Switzerland, Albert followed his great passion for cooking and quickly rose to become a world-renowned chef. He was blessed with an illustrious 50-year career in the culinary field, of which the last 45 years were with Hilton International in Montreal and then Toronto. At the age of 28, he became Executive Chef at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel and four years later was appointed as Corporate Executive Chef of Hilton Canada, the position he held until his retirement from Hilton Toronto in 2000.

Albert was fondly referred to as “Papa Schnell” by those who worked with him over the years. He was a mentor to many in all corners of the world and with whom he maintained and cherished close friendships. Throughout his career he always acknowledged that the many accomplishments were the result of the entire team.

Albert passionately promoted his profession and the high standards of international cuisine and received awards for his lifetime commitments towards apprenticeship training and excellence in Culinary Arts. He was a member of several organizations including the Escoffier Society of Toronto, the Canadian Culinary Federation, and the Toronto Chapter of Les Toques Blanches of which he was a founding member and the first President.

Albert had so many interests and passions in life, such as nature, the outdoors, gardening, and learning. The family will fondly remember our vacations together in Switzerland.

A Memorial Service will be held at Yorkminster Park Baptist Church (1585 Yonge Street, Toronto) on Friday, September 21, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Reception to follow. If desired, donations in memory of Albert may be made to Yorkminster Park Baptist Church or House of Compassion of Toronto.

Obituary of ULMER, El (Elmer) of Kelowna, British Columbia

Posted by on August 28, 2018
El (Elmer) William Ulmer
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Elmer at the age of 86 on Thursday, August 23, 2018 in Kelowna, BC.
He was a devoted husband, father, brother and friend to many. Elmer was born Nov 8, 1931 in Melville, Sask (close to Lorlie) and lived most of his life in Regina where he met and married Joan, his wife of 65 years. He was a printer for over 60 years and enjoyed playing fast pitch softball as shortstop for the Barker Gems, continuing to play for many years after his retirement. He built a wonderful cottage on Last Mountain Lake that was enjoyed for 20 years until they retired to Kelowna BC, where he lived the Okanagan life for 22 years.
Elmer was a kind man, always active, energetic and as sharp as a tack. He treated people equally and with respect and really listened to what they had to say before judging them.
