Obituary of MATTHEWS: Margaret (Peggy) Mary of Victoria

Posted by on April 17, 2018

images-4

MATTHEWS, Margaret Mary (Peggy), aged 90 of Victoria, BC, Canada passed away on Wednesday, April 4, 2018. Peggy was surrounded by her loving family, in the peace and comfort of her home, where she lived with her daughter Margaret and son-in-law Seamus for many years.
A Gathering of Family and Friends will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018, at 1:00 pm, Ross Bay Cemetery, 1495 Fairfield Road (use Memorial Street for parking). Tea and Refreshments to follow at the home of Peggy’s son Pat and daughter-in-law Susan, at 1633 Pinewood Avenue in Fairfield.
Peggy was born on September 9, 1927 to Robert and Christina Carolan, Gormanston Village, County Meath, Éire. She married Patrick Joseph Matthews (of Navan, Co. Meath) on October 12, 1948. They lived in Navan until June 1957 when they emigrated to Victoria, BC, Canada with their 5 young children.
Beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Peggy was also an avid and skilled golfer; winning many trophy’s and prizes over the years including Victoria City Ladies Champion (1970) and Gold Medalist in the 1978 BC Summer Games. She was always athletic and did well at any sport she put her hand to. She was an exceptional gardener; verdant, lush green lawns and hedges, flowers prolific and vegetables plentiful. Peggy loved all animals but most especially her little dogs. She always had at least one or two, and she spoiled them all rotten. She also had an impressive ‘charm’ of hummingbirds that she cared for every day. Some winter days she would have as many as 60 of the wee things clustered about her while she hung the feeders – and hang them every day she did.
Peggy is preceded in death by her husband Patrick J. Matthews (Aug 1986), her parents Robert and Christina Carolan, her brothers John and Robert, her sisters May, Christina, and Ester. She is survived by her five children and their spouses Robert (Darlene), Antoinette (Ted), Patrick (Susan), Brendan (Nancy) and Margaret (Seamus), her sister Anne Cassidy in Ireland, her grandchildren Patrick, Jannine, Simon, Katherine (Marcus), Kevin, Christine (Garth), Daniel (Lindsey), Caitlin, Andrew (Justine), Caroline, and Liam. Great grandchildren Claire, Margaret, Vivian, Aislinn, Clayton, Elena, and Quinn.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Peggy’s honour to the SPCA or World Wildlife Fund.
Peggy’s family wishes to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the nurses of the Palliative Response Team (Hospice PRT) for their care and kindness.

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.

Obituary of DICKINSON: Duane Carson of Comox, BC

Posted by on August 23, 2017

images-4

Duane (Dick) Carson Dickinson, 89, of Comox, BC, passed away on 1 May 2017 after a hard-fought battle with ALS.
Duane was born in Hartland, NB on 20 Sept 1927, the son of Frank Leroy Dickinson and Gladys Lillian Letson. Duane was a graduate of Hartland High School and of the Carlton County Vocational School in Woodstock, NB.
Duane married Sylvia (Betty) Elizabeth Stoneman on 16 Aug 1947 in Portage la Prairie, MB.
Captain Dickinson had a full career as a Canadian Armed Forces officer serving in the Air Force (commissioned from the ranks). Duane was one of the early Unix programmers that actually programmed defence systems for NORAD. He served in radar stations and NORAD bases across Canada and in the US until retirement and moving to Comox in 1978. He then served as a civilian member of the RCMP until his second retirement in 1993. He was a proud member of the Canadian Legion for more than 50 years.
He grew up on a large farm in Carleton County NB during the Great Depression, which taught him hard work, innovation and dedication. Make the most out of what you have. His technical understanding allowed him to build computers from components and become one of the most prolific 80-year-old family support techs around. Duane also enjoyed rock hounding, fishing, golfing (his hole-in-one was a highlight moment) and had a true passion for genealogy. He comes from a long line of United Empire Loyalists and traces back to passengers on the Mayflower.
Duane is survived by his spouse, Sylvia (Betty), his brother Robert (Bob) Dickinson, his sister-in-law Lilian Warke, his 4 children and their spouses: Janet (Ian) Hunter, Greg (Abbey) Dickinson, Karen (Ted) Benson, Gary (Dani) Dickinson, 11 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and innumerable caring nieces and nephews, plus countless friends and acquaintances. He will be sorely missed and long remembered.
Duane is preceded in death by his parents Frank and Gladys and 10 siblings, Buster, Clarence, Wendell, Dorothy, Patricia, Douglas, Peter, Austin, Myrna, and Stephen.
As per Duane’s request, there will be no funeral service or wake.
The whole family wishes to thank Veterans Affairs Canada, Island Health, Red Cross, Comox Fire Department First Alert, B.C. Ambulance crews and St. Joseph’s Hospital staff, family and friends, for their compassion and assistance during this trying time. Please join us in remembering Duane by visiting our memorial at the Piercy Mt. Washington Funeral Home site.
