Betty stayed in Brockville until 1945. Through her volunteer involvement with the Canadian Army’s officer training camp in Brockville, she met her husband, Newton Herndon Fletcher, who had traveled up from his home in Indianapolis, Indiana, to join the Canadian forces during World War II. They were married in February 1943.
After the war, they moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where Herndon, or Fletch as he was popularly known, attended Harvard Law School while Betty was employed in clerical positions. Eventually they moved to New York and settled in Westchester County. While Fletch worked as a corporate lawyer for Uniroyal in Manhattan, Betty continued to work in clerical and editorial capacities. In 1956, their one and only child, Diana Gail, was born. As a family, they attended the Presbyterian Church in Irvington, New York.

Sherry Terese Haley of Sydney Mines, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia died peacefully early Sunday, March 26, 2017, at Sara Vista nursing home in Elmvale, Ontario. She was born on March 14, 1937, in Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia. She was predeceased by her parents Edith (Mama) and John (Papa) Fraser, and her beloved husband James (Sonny) Riley Haley. She is survived by her daughter and spouse; Mary Gregorio (nee Haley), George Gregorio, and three loving grandchildren, Jennifer Frias (nee Gregorio) married to Liberto Frias, Christine Gregorio and Bryan Gregorio; she will be deeply missed by her three great grandchildren Danielle and Jesse Frias, Owen Amaral and soon to be forth great granddaughter. Sherry was the eldest of eleven siblings often helping to care for her younger brothers and sisters. In the late 60’s Sherry moved to Toronto with her beloved husband to start a new life making Toronto her new home and where she raised her daughter. Sherry found employment at Eaton’s as a secretary and continued on her secretarial career for many years until her retirement from the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada where she had many fond experiences/memories with the First Nations people. Sherry was a wealth of knowledge and an avid reader, historical novels being her favourite. She was very creative and always had a project on the go. She loved to bake and we will miss her chocky rocks and lemon meringue pies; family parties will never be the same without her sweets and sunny disposition. Sherry was a strong and independent woman who loved downtown Toronto, she loved to explore Kensington Market and Chinatown. Sherry loved to take her granddaughters with her on her excursions and taught them so much about Toronto and its diversity. Everyone who knew Sherry would say she was a very sweet woman with a bright spirit, a big heart, a great storyteller and always there for a good laugh. In the final years of her life Sherry had to give up her independence and move in with her daughter and son-in-law as dementia took control of her. The horrible disease brought her down and it was very sad to watch this bright spirit of a woman have so much sadness and frustration. She tried her best to be herself but struggled daily until she had to move into the nursing home. The nurses and staff at Sara Vista nursing are to be commented for their exceptional caregiving during the past year. They treated Sherry as one of their own family members and were overwhelmed with emotion claiming Sherry as their “shinning star”. We will all miss Sherry very much but we know she is in a better place with no more suffering. Viewing and service will be held at Lynn-Stone Funeral Home 15 Young St Elmvale Ontario, on Wednesday March 29th 2017, viewing 5-7 pm followed by mass service at 7pm. Burial will be held on March 30th 2017, 1pm at Pine Hill cemetary 625 Birchmount Rd, Scarborough, ON.

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).
