Oct.13, 2013 at St. Gabriel’s Villa Chelmsford.  She was predeceased by her husband Alf Mallette (1981) & her parents Viljo (Bill) & Saima (Seppala) Koski.   Velma was a loving and supportive mother and instilled in her children and grandchildren a great work ethic, a sense of right and wrong, an appreciation of the value of a dollar, and love of family.  She set an example of how to live with style and grace and her tenacity and strength to get through the toughest times are a lesson for us all.   She will be forever loved and missed by her children: Judi Buckingham Cook (Lenny) of Aurora Colorado; Jill Thomson (Barry predeceased) of Levack; and Dan and Angie Mallette of Barrie.  She was a devoted and generous Grandma and G.G. to Jeff and Shay Buckingham, sons Aidan and Ryan (Parker Colorado); Kirk and Heather Thomson, daughters Maira and Darcy (Ottawa); Robyn Thomson and Oscar Cano, daughter Daniela (Copper Cliff), Shannon (Mallette) and Brian Fick, daughters Maddy and Elly (Sooke B.C.); and Kris & Susie Mallette, daughters Grace and Kaitlyn (Kelowna B.C.).   She was predeceased by her brothers John, Bill, and Harry, and sisters Rusty MacNamara, Helen Sul, and Ethel Bullock.  Auntie Velma was much loved by many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews of the Koski & Mallette families.

Velma was a well known and respected resident of Levack for all of her 88 years.  She worked at the Levack Pharmacy as a pharmacist assistant for 22 years before retiring in 1990.  She was an accomplished knitter providing her children and grandchildren with beautiful sweaters, hats, and mittens.  Velma was a fiercely independent and strong woman, maintaining her own home until 2012. Always stylish, she never left home without her hair done and makeup on.  She enjoyed her daily walks and coffee at the Bluebird with the “girls”.  Monday bus trips to the casino with Tynne and Barb were the highlight of her week and Lady Luck blessed her many times.

At her request there will be no visitation.  A luncheon in her honour will be held on Sunday, November 3, from 11:30 – 2:30 at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 503 Onaping. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Cooperative Funeral Home, Chelmsford.

April 14, 1921 – August 16, 2013

 

Son of William Johnston Crowe and Georgina Gertrude (née Gammon). Predeceased by Doris Mary (née Scanes), beloved wife of 61 years, his classmate at United College and energetic and devoted collaborator. Marshall and Doris were predeceased by their infant son William. Also predeceased by his parents and siblings, Gertrude Cochrane, Elliott, Ruth, Georgina , Florence Christiansen, John and Harry.

His grandchildren: Jessica (Taro Murata), Caleb Yong (Juliana Ramirez-Herrera), Susan Crowe (Radek Zlamal) , David Berry (Samantha Robdrup), Catherine Crowe, Adam Berry and Ben Fukuzawa. His great-grandchildren: Jadyn and Isabelle Berry, Charlie and Lily Murata and Caroline Zlamal.

Over the years, our parents opened their hearts and home to new Canadians whom we are proud to call family: Lawrence Le (Ping), Nick Ho (Irene), and Seumien Chen (Nobuo Sasaki) and their children and grandchildren:  Innie Chen (Jordan Melzer and their son Emet), Yuli Chen-Sasaki, Jonathan and Rebecca Le, Ariana and Ashlyn Ho . Marshall attended Daniel McIntyre Collegiate in Winnipeg, obtained a B.A. in history and economics at United College, Winnipeg and an LL.B. at the University of Ottawa. He served in the Canadian Army during WW II and after the war as a Foreign Service Officer, Department of External Affairs, including postings to New York (United Nations) and Moscow in the 40’s and 50’s.

Marshall had many mentors in his career. He and Doris were both students of Arthur R.M. Lower and Arthur Phelps at United College. Marshall was guided as a junior Foreign Service Officer by John Watkins and John Holmes. He never forgot his debt to these men and to the many colleagues and friends he was privileged to know over his life and career.

Marshall and Doris raised cattle at the farm in Portland, partnering with good friends, Larratt and Paddy Higgins, Ross and Marion Stone and Eric Lawlor and were among a group of breeders who introduced the Dexter breed to Canada. They were also active in the beginning years of the Toronto French School; Marshall served on the Board of Directors and Doris helped to establish the first TFS school library. No words can adequately express our gratitude to the many wonderful caregivers, who supported Marshall and family. Thank-you Gloria, Susan, Penny, Faith, Linda, Kelly, Sheila, Elaine, Cyndal and Steven. Your gentle kindness, compassion and professionalism made it possible for us to keep Marshall at home, safe and comfortable and correcting our grammar until the end. We would like to express a special thanks to Susan Blue, for her kindness and devotion to both our parents over more than 20 years. Finally, we owe a great debt to the many physicians who assisted Marshall, including Dr. Susan Wilkinson and Dr. Kathy Wickens.
