OGLAN, Jackson

Posted by on May 26, 2018

It is with unimaginable sadness that we announce the loss of our Jackson on May 15, 2018 at the age of 19. He lived his life with adventure and intellect and will be missed by so, so many. Jackson is survived by his parents Kathy and Ron, his brothers Isaac and Roman, his Nonna Lillian Valvasori as well as aunts and uncles Jeannie, Dina, Ray, Jim, Erika, Wendy, David, Deanna, Derek, John, Teresa and Sandra. He will be missed by his cousins: Jason, Kathryn, Elena, Anthony, Dorota, Devon, Paige, Taylor, Kelsey, Haley, Milo, Sevi, Giuliano, Ronnie, Giordano, and Jennifer. Jackson was blessed to be supported and loved by his friend and ‘brother’ Mahdy, as well as Max, Barento, Vincent, Martin, Austin, Stew and so many others. Jackson joins his Nonno Otto Valvasori (2015) and his grandmother Johanna Oglan (2017).

Jackson was a graduate of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Elementary School and Holy Names High School class of 2017 and had just finished his first year at the University of Toronto. He was an avid photographer, enjoyed baseball, basketball, and curling, and had a genuine passion for music and the outdoors.

In keeping with the person he was Jackson’s organs have been donated in hopes that others can live healthily and happily.

Our entire family would like to thank the first responders who acted quickly with care and compassion. To the emergency room team, Doctors Wasserman, Briskin and Malus, our ICU nurses Ivana, Andrea, Jess, Giovanna, Lauren, Jackie, and Tom who offered immeasurable support in the most difficult time of our lives – thank you. They treated Jackson and our entire family with professionalism, immense kindness, and utmost respect in our time of need.

Jackson fought like a warrior to battle his depression and we ask that his memory be honoured and that each of you help to create awareness about mental health, reach out to others and be kind. In a world where there is so much darkness we must be the light for those we love. Never stop talking, never stop listening and never forget the light that was our Jackson.

Friends will be received for memorial visitation at WINDSOR CHAPEL (South Chapel) 3048 Dougall Ave. 519.253.7234 on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 from 2-5pm and 7-9pm.

COLEMAN: Jean, of Aldborough Township

Posted by on May 22, 2018

Peacefully from complications of alzheimer’s, on Monday, May 21, 2018, at St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital, Jean Isabel Coleman, a long-time resident of Aldborough Township, passed away in her 92nd year.  Predeceased by her husband Carl J. Coleman (1997).  Loving mother of Carol Riess (Frank) of Sarnia, Ron (Maureen) Coleman of London, Barry (Theresia) Coleman of Alberta and the late Nancy McGill (2011) (Brian).  Cherished grandmother of Jeffrey (Valerie) Riess, James (Nicole) Riess, Melanie (Noel) Manchulenko, Marie McGill and Jane McGill.  Great-grandmother of Avrey and Declan Riess and Adam and Natalie Manchulenko.  Survived by sister-in-law, Marie Smith.  Also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.  Predeceased by daughter-in-law, Denise (2015).   Jean was a good wife and good mother and a good daughter to her mother, Florence, creating a sandwich generation before a sandwich generation was ever mentioned before her time.  She was also a multi-talented woman.  She was a seamstress, crafter, sewer, knitter and was specially known for crocheting dishcloths and scrubbies that have been shared around the world.  Jean loved to travel and especially enjoyed the Canadian Rocky Mountains with her son and daughter-in-law.  Jean was a valuable asset to her community, helping at the Rodney Legion, C.W.L., driving the elderly to appointments, parties and events and babysitting for family and friends in the community.  She loved hosting a good party, showers and weddings for others, but never for herself.  She could always find a four leaf clover, where others could never.  Relatives and friends will be received at DENNING’S OF RODNEY, 212 Furnival Road, Rodney (519-785-0810) on Friday, May 25th from 7-9 p.m.  Prayers will be recited at the funeral home at 6:45 p.m.  Funeral Mass will commence at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 26, 2018 from St. Mary’s Parish, West Lorne.  Interment in Rodney Cemetery.  If desired, memorial donations to the Alzheimer Society Elgin-St. Thomas would be appreciated by the family.  Condolences online at www.westelginfuneralhome.com
