WERSCH; Marian, of Hanover

Posted by on January 8, 2016

Sunrise: September 11, 1929

Sunset: January 8, 2016

Mom slipped peacefully away, surrounded by her loved ones, after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage. She is survived by her loving husband, Albert Wersch, and her beloved children, Marsha (Bernie) Lipsius and Michael (Gillian Lloyd) Allen. Also survived by 5 adored grandchildren, Eric (Chrissie), Arlene (Stephen Edgell), and Stefan Lipsius, Stephanie, and Robin (Fred Post) Sutherland, and two great-grandchildren, Jude & Isaac Lipsius. She was predeceased by her parents, Lyndsey & Maude Forder, her first husband, Mel Allen, and many other friends and relatives.

Marian was raised at a tourist camp in Northern Ontario, which was built by her parents and is now run by her son and his wife as Kegos Camp. As she grew older, she had a little restaurant that served the loggers who were using the road that ran beside the camp. When she married Mel, they moved 30 miles further north, built their own camp, and then acquired a second one off the highway. When Mel died in 1963, she continued to run both camps on her own. Ontario Hydro moved in to build a power dam a few miles further north and that is where she met Albert. They married in 1969.

Marian was a dear friend and mentor to many, and was passionate about volunteering in her community. After moving to Hanover in 1971, she became very involved with the Hanover Hospital Auxiliary and the Hanover Snowmobile Club. In her later years, she became involved with the New Millennium Quilters, the sewing club, and the Saugeen Conservation Authority.

HUSSON: Donald Hugh (P. Eng.) of London

Posted by on January 8, 2016

Husson obit editedwas a genuine and generous person who overcame early challenges to lead the life he charted for himself. He was always there to give his time, skills and knowledge, to family and friends. Don passed away peacefully, with his family by his side at McCormick Home on Thursday, January 7, 2016, in his 84th year. Born on November 25, 1932, Don was the 6th of 7 children to Daisy and Fred Husson of London, Ontario. He is survived by his youngest sibling, Ruth Husson of Kelowna, B.C. He was loved and will be dearly missed by his wife and partner of 54 years, Mary, and children David Husson (Karen Heather), Paul Husson (Michelle Fontaine) and Jennifer Cluff (Paul Cluff). “Best Grampa Ever” to Kady Husson, Nicholas Husson, Matthew Husson and Connor Cluff. Schooling posed many challenges for Don as he lost his hearing at the age of 5. He attended Ealing Public School in London, where he relied solely on his self-taught ability to lip read for communication. He switched to Lord Roberts Public School for Grade 8 with the early stages of hearing aid technology now an option. Moving on to H. B. Beal Secondary School he mastered the craft of carpentry while completing his high school education, however soon after decided that was not the career he had in mind. Enrolling in the Architectural Technology Program at the former Ryerson Institute of Technology he graduated with gold medal honours in 1953. He worked for M. M. Dillon for 14 years where he worked his way to the position of Head Draftsman. In the mid 1960’s, with two children now at home, again he sought out a new challenge. He began taking courses toward attaining his certification as a Professional Engineer, which he completed in 1967. Leaving his many friends at M. M. Dillon, he began his engineering career at the County of Middlesex. In 1978, Don was promoted to County Engineer where he worked until retirement in 1995. In his 40’s Don took up sailing which lead to many years of enjoyment with his family and friends at Fanshawe Yacht Club. Expanding his love of sailing he not only completed, but later taught, the Canadian Power Squadron course. He went on to enjoy many years of sailing charters with a close knit crew of friends, exploring places such as the British Virgin Islands, the North Channel, the Canadian West Coast and many others. Don was always busy and he enjoyed playing bridge, making wine, woodworking, bowling, fishing, home renovations, and spending time with family and friends. Don lived life to its fullest potential, and will be missed by all who knew him. The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to the amazing staff at McCormick Home. A memorial service will be conducted at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, on Thursday, January 14, 2016 at 11:00 a.m., with visitation one hour prior to the service. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the McCormick Home Foundation would be greatly appreciated by the family.
