Whyte: Harrold Kenneth of Flesherton in his 84th year resting at Fawcett Funeral Home, Flesherton

Posted by on September 4, 2014

 

memDecember 17, 1929 – August 31, 2014
Harold is embarking on a new journey in the After-Light. Harold was a wonderful loving man – as a Dad(to Kim), companion(to Christine), and good friend(to many people). His talents were numerous – Photographer, Videographer(film and digital) and a Creative Inventor. His loves included all of nature, birds, music and his home – Cedar Hollow Studio/Gallery. He was a great athlete – cross-country skiing, hiking and bike riding. His life-long accomplishments are many. Graduated with the class of 1949 from Ridley College(a Tiger); he acquired a wealth of experience through ten years in the newspaper industry(Toronto Telegram & the Star); a creative illustrator for Canadian magazines; television(CBC); industrial film-making, docu-dramas and video commissions. He was a master of balancing light, colour and composition. He changed with the times, mastering computer technology in his 80’s; he believed technology heightened his works, but it was always about the light and Harold always waited patiently for the perfect light to bring a scene magically to life. And, what a wonderful life he had! We will all miss him greatly. A celebration of Harold’s life will be held in the future.

KERBY, Birdeen (nee Carley) of Cobourg, Ontario

Posted by on September 4, 2014

Kerby fixedBirdeen Kerby passed away peacefully in Cobourg Ontario on September 4, 2014 after an extended illness.

Birdeen was predeceased by her beloved husband Donald Kerby in 2008, and by sisters Josephine, Joyce and brother Walter. A proud mother, she is survived by daughter Debra Deen, son William (Jacqueline) of Chile and son Scott (Pauline) of the Yukon. She is also survived by her beautiful grandchildren Carley Alexandra and Robert Jose and her beloved ‘grand-pups’ Farley Mowat, Marlowe, Domi & Cooper.  

Birdeen will be missed greatly by her extended family and friends, including brothers Wilbur (Lucy predeceased) and Harlan (Mary) and many wonderful nieces, nephews and long time friends.

Known for her love of travel and adventure, Birdeen left small town life and spent her career with the Foreign Service in Paris, France and Ciudad Trujillo (now Santo Domingo) in the Dominican Republic. It was there that she met the love of her life on a blind date to go dancing, and that dance continued for over 50 years, through a pre-retirement one year sailing adventure to the Bahamas before retiring to a country home in Roseneath Landing. Travel with Don to visit her children, cherished family and friends around the globe continued to keep her love of new adventures afresh well into retirement.

Formerly of Toronto, Birdeen was involved in many activities apart from chauffeuring her children to their own – an active volunteer, curler and a member of the Women’s Association of Mining in Canada since 1961. Birdeen also had a strong creative spirit and a love for theatre, world affairs, and in retirement became a prize winning folk art painter.

Birdeen’s passion for the world was an inspiration to her children who have all followed her example to travel the world, to give back, to pursue their own dreams, and to remember that laughter and chocolate ice cream are truly the best medicine.

Our family would like to express sincere thanks to the friends and caregivers that supported Birdeen especially in her final days, with special gratitude to Debbie Taylor, Dr. Moorsom and the Palliative Care Team at Northumberland Hills Hospital for their heartfelt compassion and care.

At Birdeen’s request, she will be cremated and a private family service will be held with final interment in Heritage of St. Peter Cemetery, Cobourg.  

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Northumberland Hills Hospital Foundation or to the Church of St. Peter, Cobourg to support the St. Marks Mazuzu Diocese in Malawi for orphan care. Condolences and donations received at www.MacCoubrey.com.
