VOKES; Rozelle, of Petrolia

Posted by on June 26, 2015

VokesRozelleRozelle Charlene Vokes

(nee Collins)

May 27, 1944 – June 25, 2015

Rozelle passed away peacefully in her home on Thursday afternoon, surrounded by family.  Rozelle is survived by her loving and devoted husband of over 47 years, Stephen John Vokes and her two children Stephen and Charles (Vera Lynn), her two grandchildren Amanda and Joshua and her sisters, the Reverend Michelle Collins-Wongkee (Michael), Frieda Collins and Liz Guibert (Bob).  She will also be remembered by her sister-in-law, Lynn Smith (Ken) and her brothers-in-law, Peter Vokes (Joy), David Vokes (Laurie) as well as all her nieces and nephews. Rozelle is pre-deceased by her sister, Cecile Thomson (David) and her brother-in-law, Robert (Janice).

Rozelle was born in Oshawa, Ontario to Rozelle (nee LeBoyer) and Charles Collins; she subsequently grew up in the city of Sarnia and Sarnia Township attending both King George School and Beehive SS#4, later graduating from S.C.I.T.S.  Steve and Rozelle met through Junior Farmers, and were married in 1967 at Christ Church, Sarnia.

Rozelle was both happy and content in her role as Steve’s partner in marriage and as well as his partner in farming.  Apart from doing books for the farm, she was an avid baker and cook.  Preserving her own crop from the garden through various mediums, pickling, canning and freezing was one of her many gifts to her family.  She also enjoyed what she jokingly called her role as ‘gofer’, taking off at a moment’s notice for towns far and wide to pick up some vital part needed immediately for either farm or tiling machinery.

Over the last several years Rozelle and Steve have enjoyed travelling; especially, although not exclusively, seeing the world from the deck of a cruise ship.

Steve and his family would like to thank the V.O.N nurses and the P.S.W. personnel as well as Dr. Glen Maddison. The visitation will be from two p.m. to four p.m. and from seven p.m. to nine p.m. on Sunday, June 28, 2015 at the NEEDHAM JAY FUNERAL HOME, 4059 Petrolia Line, Petrolia. Rozelle’s celebration of life will be held at Christ Anglican Church, Oil Street in Petrolia on Monday, June 29, 2015 at 11:00 a.m., with the Reverend Elise Chambers officiating.  A private interment of ashes at the Wyoming Cemetery will follow at a later date.  A luncheon will be served immediately following the service in the Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Rozelle’s name by cheque to the Shriner’s Hospital or a charity of your choice. Memories and condolences may be shared online at www.needhamjay.com.

ConnollyJohn Allan Connolly of Elmvale, formerly of Cedar Springs, passed away peacefully at RVH in Barrie at the age of 86, June 15, 2015.  Beloved husband of 64 years to Jean (Pilbeam) Connolly. Loving father of Linda (Don) Burk, Judy Sibinski, Charlotte Rose (predeceased 1986) and Max (Debbie) Connolly.  Cherished grandfather of Tara (Jason) McKinnon, Niki Burk (Bryn Pierce), Laura (Ryan) VanderLinde, Ron (Adrina) Rose, Jacob and Tonya Rose, Preston and Alden Connolly. Proud great-grandfather of Tyson Meraw, Lucas and Lincoln McKinnon, Keelan and Charlotte Rose (Ron) Benjamin Rose (Tonya)

Dad was the proud owner/operator of ALMAC Lawn Care for many years.  Upon retirement, he and mom moved to Elmvale and embraced their retirement.  Dad became an enthusiastic community volunteer, helping out at Heritage Park, assisting at the Senior Center and canvassing for the Cancer Society and March of Dimes.

When baseball season started, Dad’s blue truck “thumper” would be spotted at all the ball games.

Dad loved Elmvale, he considered it to be his home town; every morning, weather permitting, Dad would walk through Elmvale; he had a smile and cheerful greeting for everyone he met.

Dad was a member of the Gideon Society for over 25 years. His greatest joy was sharing his love of the Lord; he always carried a New Testament bible in his pocket just in case he would have the opportunity to spread the good word.

Cremation has taken place. Family and friends are invited to join us at the Elmvale Community Arena 14 George St. Elmvale on Saturday June 27, 2015 from 3:00pm – 5:00pm to celebrate dad’s life.

If you wish to remember our father with a memorial donation, please consider the Cancer Society www.cancer.ca  or the Gideon’s www.gideons.ca
