ELLIOTT, ELAINE of Cobourg, Ontario

Posted by on October 23, 2014

Elliott Elaine croppedElaine Elliott of Cobourg passed away peacefully in the early morning of October 22nd, 2014.

Elaine was predeceased by her loving husband Clay Elliott (2002). She will be deeply missed by her large and flourishing family, including her daughters Lynda, Kathy (Paul), and Kym (Brian). She was very devoted to her five grandchildren, Jeff (Diletta), Kahley (Jay), Erin (Jeremiah), Graham (Cheryl), and Kate (Dave) as well as her 9 great-grandchildren.

Elaine began her business career as a Bell Canada operator. Later she worked with husband Clay to start and build Horizon Plastics – where, she would often say “Clay fired me many times”. Due to the foresight of both Clay and Elaine, Horizon Plastics is now the one of the largest employers in Cobourg and a worldwide leader in the structural foam technology.

Throughout the years, Elaine built a quiet, yet powerful legacy of community involvement and charity.She was a significant contributor to the Cobourg Library, the Northumberland Hills Hospital (The Clay and Elaine Elliott Women’s Health Centre), and the new Cobourg Community Center. Elaine was also a quiet supporter of an untold number of causes that she cared deeply about. She was one of the driving forces behind the creation of Attitudes For Education, which supports talented Northumberland County students who demonstrate positive attitudes toward their circumstances, their communities, and their personal life objectives.

She was an avid participant in several social and service organizations, including the Northumberland Hills Hospital Auxiliary, Probus, and various Bridge Clubs. She was also the founder of the Cobourg Inner Wheel Club, who are now celebrating their 30th anniversary. She cherished the lifelong friendships she made through these organizations. Elaine was always living life to its potential and was a force to be reckoned with.

Elaine was a strong and remarkable woman who drew enormous enjoyment from a Canadian life well lived. In her younger years, she was an avid curler and an accomplished golfer. She is a Leaf fan, and a denizen of Cottage Country. She fell in love with the mysteries and beauty of Africa and never forgot that internal stir of excitement and appreciation as the sun would rise over the horizon.

She was a magnificent woman, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, community leader, and most of all she was the best friend you could have. She was someone you could always count on, argue against, and more frequently laugh with. She will be missed – and remembered – as the monarch that she was. May we all try our best to fill the fashionable shoes of Elaine Elliott.

A service to celebrate Elaine’s life will be held on Tuesday, October 28 at 2 p.m. at Fellowship Baptist Church, 469 Elgin Street West, Cobourg, with a reception to follow at the Best Western Plus Cobourg Inn & Convention Centre, 930 Burnham Street. Those wishing to make donations may do so to The Clay Elliott Scholarship Foundation (Attitudes for Education) or The Clay & Elaine Elliott Women’s Health Centre at Northumberland Hills Hospital.

24576 GoertsGOERTZ, Dwight……

It is with profound sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of Dwight Goertz, on Saturday, October 18, 2014, in his 69th year.  Dwight was beloved husband of Barbara (Stableford), treasured father to Rebecca (William), Anthony and David (Jennifer).  Cherished Papa to Alexa, John, Madelyn and Kathryn.

As a successful business owner, Dwight understood the value of hard work, building strong relationships and good leadership. A man of many interests, he loved to read, play cards and watch golf, but perhaps his greatest joy in life came from his role as the Goertz family patriarch.  Dwight delighted in every stage of childhood with his grandchildren, bringing much laughter and wisdom to their lives.  For his three children, the strength of his love has been perpetually and deeply felt.  This indeed, was his greatest legacy to them.

Dwight will be dearly missed by his wife of 47 years, Barbara, with whom he earnestly shared all of the joys and sorrows of this life.  In times of joy and in times of adversity, he was a steadfast companion who anchored the family with his good humour, compassion and devotion.

A celebration of life will be held on Thursday, October 23, 2014 from 4:30 – 7:30pm at the Highland Golf Club, 1922 Highland Heights, London.  As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, 180-633 Colborne Street, London, ON N6B 2V3. A. Millard George Funeral Home entrusted with arrangements (519-433-5184).  Online condolences, memories and photographs shared at www.amgfh.com

Dwight you are forever in our hearts.  May God bless you, and keep you in his loving care.
