GILMORE: James of Wasaga Beach, formerly of Bala, Ontario

James A. Gilmore (1926 – 2017) Obituary

James Andrew Gilmore (Jim), 90, of Muskoka, Ontario, passed away peacefully on February 23, 2017. A dedicated husband, brother, father, grandfather and friend – he will be sorely missed. His light shone bright and touched everyone he met (in many countries/across many religions). God willing, he will remain in all our hearts and minds forever.

Jim was born in Preston (now Waterloo) Ontario to Alfred and Lilian Gilmore on August 23, 1926. Growing up in Barrie, Jim was active in many sports with a passion for hockey, baseball and wrestling. Jim left high school at age 16, to take over the family Poultry Hatchery business in Barrie after his father died.

Married to Elinor Beatrice Mitchell on September 11, 1948, they moved to Aurora, in 1957 where Jim worked with Skyline Poultry Farms. A devout Christian and dedicated member of the United Church of Canada, Jim heard God’s call to work as a missionary and in 1962, Jim, Elinor, and children (Maureen, Barry and Jamie) sailed off to the mysterious, magical land of India.

Jim and Elinor served 26 years in Asia – 11 as missionaries in India, 7 with United Nations in remote Muzaffarabad (Pakistan) and 8 with UN in Delhi. Jim revolutionized the poultry industry in India and Pakistan, satisfying Hindus in India that unfertilized chicken eggs were vegetarian, establishing broiler rearing and distribution network in India and building hatchery/feed mills/broiler farms in remote Pakistan.

Jim was very active in the community – Rotary Club in Barrie (at age 23 the youngest president), Sunday School teacher, India International Center Volunteer, helping set up broiler/egg production in Bethany Village (a landmark rehabilitation establishment for lepers)– after retirement, Muskoka Lakes Ratepayers Association, Bannockburn Church Board (near cottage), Church choir.

Jim Gilmore is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Elinor; his three children Maureen (Moe) Donald, Barry and Jamie; his daughters in-law Ani and Sheilagh and son in-law Sandy; his 7 grandchildren Kerry Lee, Matthew, Sarah, Kenneth, Kathryn, Laura and Philip; his sister, Barbara; two nephews, Andrew and Jimmy and his cousin, Jean.

Jim’s Celebration of Life will be held at the family cottage in Muskoka, Ontario on July 29, 2017 at 2 pm. Please join us – contact one of his surviving children to confirm.

If you are moved to donate in Jim’s honour, make a small gift in his name to your church or to Bannockburn Community Church (1071 Bannockburn Road, Box 101 Bala) Wasaga Beach United Church (380 Zoo Park Rd., Wasaga Beach).

Riberas Del Pilar, Jalisco Mexico- Joan Marie (Peloquin) Montgomery died on Sunday, December 11th at the age of 79 in her beloved Mexico after a short illness.
January 15th 1937-December 11th 2016

Joan was predeceased by her husband Hugh Boman Montgomery (1987) and her parents Norbert and Laura Peloquin. She leaves her daughters Catherine (Katie) Laura Vanderyt (Bill) and Kelly Cora Ricketts (Todd) she was very proud of her 4 grandchildren Emily (23) Meghan (21) Vanderyt and Ivan (12), Issac (10) Ricketts. They were her true love.
She will be missed by her immediate family, nieces and nephews, friends and siblings, Edmond, Jim, Marlene and Sylvia.

Joan raised her daughters in Caledon and Brampton Ontario after her the death of her husband Hugh. She was fiercely independent, private and a true survivor. At the age of 50 she went back to high school and completed her grade 12. She then began to work in the Social Service Field which she loved until she retired in her early 60’s. She loved to be surrounded by her family and had a wonderful laugh and sense of adventure. For years while raising her daughters she dreamed of retiring in Mexico, and you could always find a book of Mexico and a box of turtles under her bed. She began her journey to Mexico in 1998 visiting yearly, always at awe that her dream came true. In 2006 she made the move to the Lake Chapala area of Jalisco Mexico permanently, fulfilling her retirement dreams.

While in Mexico she entrenched herself in the expat life, volunteering with the Red Cross, Ninos Incapacitados and the Lake Chapala society. She helped put her much loved maid Alejandra’s children through school and was proud of their accomplishments. She was a tall stately woman who was easily noticed wherever she went. Joan enjoyed travelling Mexico and learning about the culture. She was very fond of her adoptive home and loved the Mexican people saying they were the kindest, hardest working people. Joan was very proud the day she became a permanent Mexican resident. Her grandchildren called her their Mexican grandma.

After a brief illness Joan was admitted to the lovely Casa Nostra Nursing home in Riberas del Pilar, Jalisco Mexico. Her daughters were able to join her in Mexico and spend time with her before her passing.

A celebration of life will take place in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico in Februay 2017
