Duane married Sylvia (Betty) Elizabeth Stoneman on 16 Aug 1947 in Portage la Prairie, MB.
Captain Dickinson had a full career as a Canadian Armed Forces officer serving in the Air Force (commissioned from the ranks).

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).

Posted by on February 23, 2017

images-4

Keith D. Phinney, age 70, died on Saturday, February 11, 2017, at the QEII Infirmary in Halifax, N.S.

Keith was born in Ottawa on November 25, 1946. He graduated from Hillcrest High and went on to study Chemistry at Carleton University in Ottawa, later completing a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick. Over his career, he occupied senior positions at Montreal Engineering in Fredericton, CH2M Hill in Vancouver, and ADI & Associates in Halifax. He often gave in to his entrepreneurial spirit, working independently as a consulting engineer. He had a love of teaching and embraced opportunities to provide instruction in environmental science. An expert in his field, he was passionate about his work and was engaged in several projects at the time of his passing.

A person of unmatched integrity in his professional and personal relationships, Keith was sought for his advice and generously offered his time to others as a mentor, cub scout leader, church warden and volunteer. Recently, he brought his sensible, no-nonsense approach to bear as a member of the Mining Association of Nova Scotia, the Minister’s Round Table on Environment and Sustainable Prosperity (NS), and the American Water Works Association. He campaigned tirelessly during the last municipal election.

Keith was known for his quick wit and sense of humour and saw comedy in almost any situation. His laugh was infectious and could be heard for miles. An energetic, vital guy, he was happiest when cycling, canoeing, skating, skiing, camping with friends, and playing endless games of hide and seek with his beloved granddaughter.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Karen (nee Hewitt), daughter Catherine (Mike Blanchette), son Dave (Donna Hohertz), and granddaughter Isla Grace; his sister Cheryl (Robert Benson) and brother Wayne (Sandra); many nieces and nephews, and cherished friends and colleagues. He was predeceased by his brother Bryan (Jacqueline).

In accordance with his wishes, his life will be celebrated at a date to be determined in the spring. Donations in his name may be made to Feed Nova Scotia (https://www.feednovascotia.ca) or Phoenix Youth Programs (https://phoenixyouth.ca/donate-now-through-canadahelpsorg-0).

Obituary for Bobby Dorrington
ROBERT ALLEN DORRINGTON
06 JAN 1939 – 26 MAR 2016
It is with unspeakable grief that I write this to tell you all our Bobby Allen’s mother, Dora, has come for him .
He left quietly, in dignity, at 0545 26th March 2016 with a sense of peace about him. Bob was 77.
Bob was a remarkable human being who loved his life and his family.
His life was turned upside down when at the age of 16 he suffered the loss of his mother. He joined the Royal Canadian Navy , married and had three children, two daughters, Carla in Dartmouth, NS and Robin of Maui, USA The loss of an infant son, Robbie troubled him for many years. Carla and her husband, Philip gave him two grandchildren, Zackery and Vanessa. Sadly he was never able to meet his great grandchildren, Gavin and Aria, the children of Zackery and his wife Shannon. Robin and her husband Charles, gave him five grandchildren, Jezua, Judah, Jahlani, Malaika and Kawai.
His navy career spanned 25 years, 162 days where he rose to the rank of Chief Petty Officer (Master Warrant Officer). He served on many ships in the Halifax area and on the west coast at Esquimalt where he met and married Villoy Mitchell in 1981. He was a warm and loving step-dad to Sandilea, Paul, Caara, Clayton and Jeffrey and a great step-granddad to their children. He himself found joy in the devotion of his little dog, Shayda. He was a good brother-in-law to Llewellyn who predeceased him, Loretta, Thomas (Anne), Bim(Greg) and uncle to their respective children.
Upon his retirement from the RCN he embarked upon a second career as a Test & Trials engineer for Saint John Shipbuilding where he remained for thirteen years. He again retired and came back to the west coast to spend 7 years as an RCMP guard.
During Bob’s lifetime, he encountered many racisms, his maternal roots going back to Sierra Leone, Africa while his paternal roots stemmed from Iceland , Scotland and Norway.. He grew up in a warm and loving family with his mother, the former Dora Lawrence , step-father Bill Dorrington and a step sister, Mona Cromwell becoming a much loved uncle to Mona’s children, in a very racist community however he always said he had few regrets in spite of the adversities thrust upon him.
Bob loved to volunteer – he enjoyed working with the disabled at the riding academy in Duncan, BC and being a member of the Malahat Lions Club. He was an avid curler for many years enjoying the prestigious honour of a seven ender under his leadership .
He was indeed a gentleman.
There will be no formal service. We ask that you honour his life with a random act of kindness .
He is at peace as are we his family who wish to express a grateful appreciation for the kindness and loving care Bob received at the Little Mountain Manor in Parksville during his last days.

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.

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.
