AKEY, Phyllis Dawn of Brockville, Ontario

Posted by on October 28, 2016

 

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.

Arrangements entrusted to the Barclay Funeral Home, 137 Pearl St. East, Brockville. Messages of condolence may be sent on line at www.barclayfuneralhome.com.

ACKLES: Enid W. of Ladysmith Formerly of St John, Ottawa, Montreal, Montebello

Posted by on September 6, 2016

images-4Chemainus – Enid Wilhelmina Ackles, aged 83 of Ladysmith BC, passed away peacefully at the Chemainus Healthcare Centre in Chemainus BC with family present at 2:45 PM on Tuesday June 7, 2016.

Enid is survived by her husband Douglas; son Donald and his partner Karin; son Brian and partner Catherine; grandson David and partner Kai; brother Hazen and wife Murial; brother Ken and wife Joan; and sister-in-law Diane and husband Mark.

Born and raised on a farm outside St. John NB, Enid lived most of her life in Ottawa, Montreal, and Montebello Quebec before retiring to Ladysmith in 2006

Enid grew up on a farm outside St John New Brunswick with 4 brothers, Hazen, Ken, Lloyd and Fraser and parents Olive and Harry. After finishing school, Enid started teaching at the local one-room school before training as a registered nurse at the St. John General Hospital. Enid spent her life in service to others as a teacher, a nurse, and a volunteer. A wonderful wife and mother, her journey through life touched more people than anyone will ever know. Married for 59 years to Douglas, and with a career as nurse for nearly 50 years, Enid always put others first. In her later years as a nurse she worked primarily in palliative care and with nursing homes, ensuring the best level of care was available to everyone. Family was important to Enid, with 19 nieces and nephews, family holidays at the farm were a time for celebration and being together. Enid always had time for others, volunteering with the church, or taking holiday shifts at the hospital so others could be with their younger families.
Never afraid of a challenge, Enid learned to swim as an adult, took up skiing (downhill, cross country and water), became an avid golfer, and traveled extensively in Canada, the US and Europe.

The family would like to especially thank the staff at the Chemainus Health Care Centre. Enid’s journey was peaceful to the end due in large part to their dedication, compassion and professionalism.

Her journey is now done, and as always she wasn’t in it to compete or win, but she still finished first. She will be missed and always in our hearts.

images-4Chemainus – Enid Wilhelmina Ackles, aged 83 of Ladysmith BC, passed away peacefully at the Chemainus Healthcare Centre in Chemainus BC with family present at 2:45 PM on Tuesday June 7, 2016.

Enid is survived by her husband Douglas; son Donald and his partner Karin; son Brian and partner Catherine; grandson David and partner Kai; brother Hazen and wife Murial; brother Ken and wife Joan; and sister-in-law Diane and husband Mark.

Born and raised on a farm outside St. John NB, Enid lived most of her life in Ottawa, Montreal, and Montebello Quebec before retiring to Ladysmith in 2006

Enid grew up on a farm outside St John New Brunswick with 4 brothers, Hazen, Ken, Lloyd and Fraser and parents Olive and Harry. After finishing school, Enid started teaching at the local one-room school before training as a registered nurse at the St. John General Hospital. Enid spent her life in service to others as a teacher, a nurse, and a volunteer. A wonderful wife and mother, her journey through life touched more people than anyone will ever know. Married for 59 years to Douglas, and with a career as nurse for nearly 50 years, Enid always put others first. In her later years as a nurse she worked primarily in palliative care and with nursing homes, ensuring the best level of care was available to everyone. Family was important to Enid, with 19 nieces and nephews, family holidays at the farm were a time for celebration and being together. Enid always had time for others, volunteering with the church, or taking holiday shifts at the hospital so others could be with their younger families.
Never afraid of a challenge, Enid learned to swim as an adult, took up skiing (downhill, cross country and water), became an avid golfer, and traveled extensively in Canada, the US and Europe.

The family would like to especially thank the staff at the Chemainus Health Care Centre. Enid’s journey was peaceful to the end due in large part to their dedication, compassion and professionalism.

Her journey is now done, and as always she wasn’t in it to compete or win, but she still finished first. She will be missed and always in our hearts.
