COEY, Julia Patricia

Posted by on February 10, 2017

Julia Patricia Coey – 1977 – 2017 

Although our darling girl left us at the far too young age of 39, she accomplished much in her short life. 

She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile which would light up a room, her sunny disposition, her kindness and empathy, her ability to not only make but also keep lifelong friendships wherever she went and her love of creatures, great and small.

 She will be forever missed by all who knew her, but especially by her beloved Greg and her heartbroken parents, Lesley and Jim.

 We would like to thank the doctors and staff at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie for their care and kindness and, most especially, the staff and volunteers at Hospice Simcoe who enfolded Julia with love and compassion during her final days.  They are all truly amazing and dedicated.

There will be a celebration of Julia’s life in the spring.  If you wish, donations in Julia’s memory can be made to Toronto Wildlife Centre or Hospice Simcoe, Barrie

THOMAS: Charles Edward “Ted”

Posted by on February 9, 2017

Peacefully, on Monday, February 6, 2017, at Vision Nursing Home, Charles  Edward “Ted” Thomas passed away at the age of 90. Ted was the 5th child born to Amelia and Arthur Thomas on June 8, 1926, in Hamilton, ON. In 1952, Ted married the late Donna (nee Dodds) (2016), and together they raised 5 children; John (Evelina Marcantonio) Thomas, Cindy (Serge Prudhomme) Thomas, Cathie Thomas, Suzanne (Jim Watts) Thomas and Carolyn (John) Lawrence. Adored grandfather of Andrew and Christopher Thomas, Reome and Alex Prudhomme, Josh and Ashlyn Lawrence, and Reid Watts.

Despite the challenges he faced in life, Ted always overcame them with perseverance.  Becoming a teacher, his career began in a one-room schoolhouse, subsequently moving to secondary school education prior to becoming an inspector for the Ontario Department of Education. Ted ultimately became responsible for the administration of all public school education in Lambton County.  His quest for knowledge and understanding was not limited to schools and schooling.   Ted was a member of many Bible study groups and at the time of his passing was working to form one of his own at Vision Nursing Home. In recent years, Ted joined Huron Baptist Church where he continued to study, question, and be challenged by the Bible. He will be missed by all those whose lives he touched and so profoundly influenced.

Ted had a great appetite for life and was an incessant collector. This passion for life was demonstrated through his many hobbies which he continued to enjoy through to the end. He will be best remembered by his family for making us laugh at his corny jokes. He will be best remembered by his neighbours for his daily vigorous walks through the Bird Lanes.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Landmark Village and Vision Nursing Home, who lovingly took care of our Dad and tolerated all his shenanigans.

Family and friends will be received on Monday, February 13, 2017, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at SMITH FUNERAL HOME, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, on.

Tracy Lynn Tuckey (Holden) age 39, fell asleep in death on February 05, 2017 at home after a brief battle with cancer.
Born in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, PQ, she was the beloved wife of Timothy Shawn Tuckey and affectionately remembered as ESM (evil step-mother) to her children Rhys, Zoe and Maxine, daughter to ever loving parents Pierre and Mary, adoring mother-in-law Patricia, dear sister to Laura, Ryan and Becky, sisters-in-law Patti, Yammi, Kathy and brothers-in-law AJ, Chris, Kevin, Jeremy, and Dave. Tracy was also an affectionate, mischievous Aunt to Zack, Alex, Owen, Ava, Sophie, and Alexis.
She enjoyed a close relationship with her extended family Aunts Cathy, Patty, Uncles Norman, Don, and family friends Tom and Cathy Kuchlein, Rick and Susan Muir.
Tracy had endearing friendships with Leah, Ruth, Debbie and Peter, Claudia, Dianne, Grant and Isabel, Greg and Pat, Meghan, Alisha, Kristin, Leslie, Allison, and of course Paul.
Tracy loved her job at the Thames Valley District School Board where Jane, Erin, Steve, Scott, Darlene, and Vicky fondly remember her.
Tracy’s love of shoes only paled when compared to her love for her husband and complete faith, love, and trust in her creator Jehovah. Tracy’s favourite scripture is a promise by Jehovah God through his Son, Jesus, in the very near future:
With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:3, 4).
The Tuckey Family would like to thank:
Pierre and Mary Holden for the tireless hours they spent in support of their daughter.
The Southdale Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses for all their support they lovingly demonstrated in their time of need.
The Palliative Care Team at LHSC-Victoria Hospital for their compassionate care.
CCAC and the VON for the resources and energies they supplied.
Dr. Elia and Dr. Malik for their dedication and professionalism.
Tracy’s final desire was to be remembered by her family and friends at her memorial service at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses located at 86 Baseline Rd W, London, Ontario on Saturday, February, 11, 2017 at 1:30 PM. A brief talk will be given in memorial for Tracy at 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested in Tracy’s memory at www.jw.org
