BLISS, Pamela Elizabeth Fergus of Brockville, Ontario

Posted by on December 24, 2016

Pamela Elizabeth Fergus Bliss

August 10, 1939 – December 12, 2016

“Pam”, was born in Verdun, Quebec to her parents Margaret Johanna (Sime) and Norman Bain, both of whom emigrated from Scotland in 1925. Pam’s older sister, Norma Lorraine, was already seven years old when Pam entered the world and was a constant loving, caring, and protective big sister to Pam. Her very early years were spent growing up during the austere years imposed by World War II but that did not temper Pam’s youthful spirit. When Pam was only seven she was one of the first children stricken during the 1946 polio epidemic and she was hospitalized in isolation for several months at the Montreal Children’s Hospital in Montreal, seeing her family only once a week through a glass partition. She fully recovered from this serious disease and this experience is credited with her desire to pursue physiotherapy as an occupation when she was an adult.

In the intervening years her family moved to Beaurepaire, now known as the west Island of Montreal but then known as the Lakeshore area, where her mother and father lived until 1975. Since there was no high school in the Lakeshore area of Montreal, Pam had to commute to the city and finished grade 11 at Montreal West High School, and grade 12 from the High School of Montreal in 1957. After this she entered McGill University directly into second year and graduated with a Diploma in Physiotherapy in the spring of 1959. It was at McGill that Pam met her lifelong friend Anne Harker (Hughes), who was a companion and fellow traveler for over 58 years.

Upon graduation, Pam accepted a physiotherapy internship in Vancouver. She and her friend Anne made the journey to Vancouver by train sharing a lower berth and eating cheese whiz, peanut butter and stale bread for a number of days – what an adventure! It was while in British Columbia that Pam discovered camping. This was the start of Pam’s lifelong passion about travelling. In October 1959 Pam returned to Montreal and was hired as a physiotherapist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Summer breaks from working were punctuated with a cross North America camping road tour with her friend Anne in 1960, and similar odyssey in Europe in 1961.

Pam also took up taking skiing charters to Europe and it was on such a trip in 1963 that Pam met her future husband Ted. They were married in April 1964 and Pam moved to Brockville, where she became a full time mother, having taken on the responsibility helping to raise four kids with Ted. Life in the

sixties and seventies proceeded with four children growing up sailing and skiing among other activities and at least once a year, Pam and Ted pursued their passion of travelling.

Over the years they traveled to every continent and were some of the very first tourists to be in communist Soviet Union and China, photographic safaris in Africa, as well as being early adopters of polar tourism to Antarctica and the Arctic. Around 1980 Pam and her friend Anne once again took annual trips, a habit that continued until very recently. In their retirement years Pam and Ted left Brockville and moved to the ‘river house’ at La Rue Mills and spent their summers golfing at the Grenadier Island Golf Club as well as taking winter golfing trips to the warmer parts of the United States.

Pam was a person who loved animals, enjoyed Cribbage and Mahjong immensely, could do the hardest crossword puzzles, and had a love of languages over the years taking time to learn Spanish, Italian, and Russian.

Pam passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, December 12, 2016. She is predeceased by her mother Margaret (Sime), father Norman, husband Ted, and son David. She is survived by her children Susan Van Tine (the late Edwin) of Hamburg, NY, Douglas (Diane Michaud) of Sackville, NB, Fraser of Turku, Finland, her sister Norma High (Bob), and niece and nephew Glenna and Alan High. Surviving grandchildren are Craig and Kim Van Tine; Fraser, Nicholas, Olli, Sam, Sydney, Zoë, and Christina Bliss, plus eight great-grandchildren.

A visitation will be held at Barclay’s Funeral Home, 137 Pearl St. E., Brockville, on Saturday, December 17th, 2016 from 1 to 3 pm. In memory of Pam donations to the Thousand Islands Watershed Land Trust, 19 Reynolds Rd., Lansdowne, ON K0E 1L0 would be gratefully appreciated by the family.

The times were difficult at the start, but she persevered and worked hard to provide a warm, welcoming home for family and friends. All can agree that she succeeded in doing so.

Special thanks to Ria and Gerard Van Haandel, the familie van Kollenburg, Helma Rombouts, and Giny Pardoel, her life lines to our extended family in The Netherlands.

Many thanks to her great and kind friends, especially Virginia, Irene, Sheila, Amey, Leslie, and Connie and Alexandra, her close circle of friends.

A fabulous mother, mentor, teacher and friend, her warmth and compassion touched the lives of many. With her wry sense of humour and understanding she will be greatly missed by all.

Rest in peace mom.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the St. Lawrence District Medical Centre in Lansdowne would be appreciated.

Funeral mass will take place at St. Patrick’s Church, Lansdowne on Monday, October 31st at 10.00 am followed by interment at St. Patrick’s cemetery.

AKEY, Phyllis Dawn of Brockville, Ontario

phyllis-akeyAKEY, Phyllis Dawn

Early on October 15 2016 Phyllis Dawn Akey age 79, died at the Brockville General Hospital Charles Street Site.  She was receiving treatment for what may have been a severe Crohn’s attack.  She had suffered with Crohn’s for over 2 decades, countless stays in the hospital, it got so bad that in the last 8 years she received TPN for 12hrs a day.  In the last 4 years her mobility was severely impaired by a much needed hip replacement, which her poor health prevented.  She fought so hard for so long, never the one to let others know just how much pain she was in.  Even on her last day when asked how she was doing, she’d say “I am feeling Ok”. 

Beloved wife of the late William “Bill” and adoring mother of the late Andrew “Andy”.  She is predeceased by siblings; Gordon, Roy, Sanford (Bob), Herbert & Jene.  Phyllis is survived by her son Donald of Brockville.  Siblings Ruth Blacklock (Fred), Callie Drane; and many nieces, nephews, and a collection of great and kind friends.

Phyllis met and fell in love with Bill while he was in the Royal Canadian Navy.  For her love he transferred from the Navy to the Canadian Air Force, and with that came their first posting, Cold Lake AB.  Phyllis got to live in and see this entire country and even Germany in the 70’s.  Phyllis’s three passions were her family, cooking & gardening.  Phyllis was a professionally trained Cook and Chef, with a real knack for baking.  She made some of the most wonderfully tasting deserts, you cannot image.  Her “Green” thumb was legendary, the variety of colors she coaxed from her African violets was astonishing, and she grew multi colored violets the likes of which will never see again.  Her gardens and flower beds were bountiful and beautiful.  I never saw her so happy after spending the entire day planting and caring for the front flower beds.  After reading an article about Brockville being a great place to retire, they came for a visit and fell in love with the city and its people.  After Phyllis and Bill retired to Brockville, Mom took up “Birding”, she loved watching all the different birds that came to the backyard to feed.  There was always a Mr. Red & Clara (Cardinals), Mr. Blue (Bluejay), and a “Little Mrs.” (Robin).  She longed for the return of the Robins in the spring & Humming birds in summer.

My mom always maintained a grace, conviction and determination that belied her demeanor. She was our foundation.  In her quiet, selfless way, loved and accompanied each of us through the paths that life took us, always there, always supportive and always encouraging. She was unique in her relationships with each of us and loyal to our individualities, sometimes seeing our value when we ourselves may not. She rejoiced in our successes and commiserated in our losses. Although I may not told her enough, I loved her absolutely.

Cremation will take place with internment at a later day, in New Jerusalem NB (at camp Gagetown) with her Mom, Dad & Brother Jene.

In memory of Phyllis Akey donations to Crohn’s & Colitis Canada or Restorative Care Program at BGH Garden St, Canadian Diabetes Association; or a charity of your choice, would be gratefully acknowledged by the family.

I would like to extend a special thank you to Chris Barnett, long-time family friend.  Chris’ visits brightened Moms day and helped Mom to continue to enjoy life with less restraint than her health in recent times would normally have allowed.

In the last few years Phyllis’ world became filled with many Caregivers & Friends, that showed such love and compassion, they touched her life and she touched theirs…I thank you all.
