Posted by on February 8, 2014

Graham, Evelyn Pamela “Pam” (Nee Davies) - It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Mrs. Pamela Graham on Friday, February 7th, 2014, after a long battle with her health. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family while in the compassionate care of Elgin Manor and the help of Ms. Chris Previl. She will be greatly missed by her husband of 69 years, Dr. C. Alex Graham, her daughters Victoria (Vic) Clive, Fiona Trussler, Sandra  (Zoltan), Olivia (Fraser) Previl. Granny will be forever missed by her cherished grandchildren Peter (Julie) Clive, Michael (Pamela) Clive, Alexander Trussler and Sean Previl. Two great-granddaughters Gabriella Clive and Charlotte Clive will sadly miss her. Pamela was born in Cape Town, South Africa but was raised in Lincolnshire, England. Pamela was predeceased by her parents Hugh and Phyllis Davies, her sister Betty Davies Breese and her brother Peter Davies. She was classically educated and enjoyed riding, training horses, hunting, golfing and tennis. She entered the Second World War as a Code and Cipher Officer (WAAF) and fell in love with her husband Alex, a Canadian Spitfire pilot. They were married in 1943. Alex attended medical school at the University of Western Ontario. After medical school they moved to Aylmer for a short stay and then settled in St. Thomas in June of 1952. Pam was a proud wife, mother and grandmother. She was tireless in her role as wife and mother. Nothing was too small to celebrate; she enjoyed everyday activities such as gardening, history books, art, travel, politics and theatre. She was an avid sports fan including golf, tennis, hockey, football and baseball. She was a member of the St. Thomas Golf and Country Club for many years and played into her 80’s. She was captain of the Ladies Nine Hole League in the 1970’s. Pam loved anything that included her family: Sunday lunches, BBQ’s, golf club brunches, swimming and afternoon tea. She was ready to discuss anything over her delicious oatmeal or chocolate chip cookies. She was always wife, and loving.

A private family service will be held in St. Thomas Cemetery (South Park). Family and friends will be invited to attend a Celebration of Life service to be held at Williams Funeral Home at a later date to be announced. Condolences for the family and donations to Mrs. Graham can be made to the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital Foundation (Emergency Department) of Elgin Manor Recreation Fund and may be arranged at Williams Funeral Home, 45 Elgin St., St. Thomas (519-631-0850) or e-mail ahughson@execulink.com.

WHALLEY: Eric, of London

Posted by on February 7, 2014

Whalley RevisedWith sadness we announce the passing of Eric Whalley peacefully on Thursday, February 6, 2014.  Predeceased by his beloved wife Eileen (October 2011) and his parents Horace and Elizabeth.  Loving father of David (Nancy), Cheryl and Lisa (Steve), adored grandfather of April (Adam), Stephanie (Dan), Jennifer, Whitney and Chloe.  Great grandfather of Jackson and Lincoln.  Dear brother of Kath, Jean (Alan) and brother-in-law of Phil, all of the U.K.  Predeceased by sister Heather and brother-in-law George.  Also remembered by 5 sisters-in-law, 4 brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews in Ontario, Michigan, the U.K. and Hong Kong.  

Eric came to Canada with his numerous skills in his early twenties.  It was here that he met the love of his life, Eileen and established Eric Whalley Construction, a highly regarded company that carried on business in southwestern Ontario for over 50 years.

Eric was known for his honesty and his sense of commitment to his customers, employees and the various sub-trades who worked on his projects.  Even in retirement, people who previously had never met Eric would recognize his name and associate it with quality homes.

In addition to being a successful businessman, he was a loving husband and a proud father.  He cherished his time with his family and made a point of taking family trips on a regular basis.  Eric was also a spiritual man whose faith in Jesus Christ was very important to him.  He always welcomed the opportunity to share that faith with others.

The family would like to thank Dr. Ray and Marion Meredith for the love and support shown in recent months and, in fact, over the years.  What they have done will never be forgotten.  A special thanks as well to the staff in Palliative Care on the sixth floor at University Hospital for the kindness and care they provided.

Family interment will take place in the spring.  A celebration of life will be held at North Park Community Church on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 10:30 a.m.  In lieu of flowers, please consider Teen Challenge or New Life Prison Ministry.  Online condolences may be made at www.westviewfuneralchapel.com
