BETTETO: Giovanna “Joanne” (n. Mariuz)

Posted by on January 25, 2016

In the comfort of her own home and with her family by her side, Joanne passed away on Friday, January 22, 2016, at 89 years of age. Dear daughter of Vittoria (nee Dolfo) and Sergio Mariuz. She was born in Orcenico Superiore, Pordenone, Italy. Joanne joins her beloved husband Aldo who passed away too early (1981). Beloved mother of Edward (Tracey), Roy, Gary (Carol) and Lora (Dean) Scimmi. Loving grandmother of Jason, Mark, Matthew, Michael, Max, Christopher (Marisa), Nicholas (Sarah), Gregory (Danielle), Desmond (Daniella), Larissa (Owein), and Nathaniel. Precious great-grandmother to Ethan, Pascal, Kael, and Kerin. Cherished sister of Ivan (Alice) Mariuz and Dino (Gabriella) Mariuz. Cherished sister-in-law of Lucia Betteto, Nilo Franzon, Elsa Macoritto, and Maria (Romano) Cestaro. Special aunt to numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her sister Bruna Franzon and Marisa Mariuz of Italy. Joanne and Aldo came to Canada from Italy to build a better life in 1951. She led a simple life but always handled herself with grace and pride. Material things meant little to her. Even during her illness she did her best each and every day. She had concern for others and always said please and thank you. Selfless to a fault, she would often disregard her own wants and needs to focus on her family. She was the anchor of the family. Sunday night dinner at “Nonna’s Kitchen” was her favourite time, and continued to be until she was no longer able. No one makes risotto like Nonna. She will be missed by many, and never forgotten for her kind nature and sense of humour. Thank you to mom’s caregivers; Afie, Marie, Tracy, and Christine. All our appreciation to gli Zii for their support. A special thank you goes out to Sheila Thompson who selflessly gave so much of her free time to support Joanne and our family. Sheila was the enabler who allowed Joanne to spend her last years at home where she dearly wanted to be, constantly surrounded by family and friends. More than that Sheila in many ways became Joanne’s best friend.  Family and friends will be received on Wednesday, January, 27, 2016, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. with the Rosary being said at 3:00 p.m., and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. with prayers being offered at 8:30 p.m. at SMITH FUNERAL HOME, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, ON.  A mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 28, 2016, at Paroisse St. Thomas D’Aquin, 895 Champlain Rd., Sarnia, ON.  In lieu of flowers, sympathy may be expressed through donations to St. Joseph’s Hospice, St. Vincent de Paul, or to the Inn of the Good Shepherd (cheques only at the funeral home please).

MILLS: Mary Elizabeth “Betty” of Paisley

Posted by on January 23, 2016

“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful!’ and sitting in the shade.”

Rudyard Kipling

Cropped Betty MillsMary Elizabeth “Betty” Mills knew the definition of hard work and also knew the joy of vegetable gardens and farming. Betty was born in Walkerton on December 9, 1937 in the midst of a snow storm that kept her dad from seeing her for the first week of her life. She grew up on the Brant-Greenock Line in a homestead that had been settled by her ancestors in 1862. She attended public school in Ellengowan, then started high school in Paisley and finished off in Walkerton. Wanting to be a nurse, Betty appeased her mother, who wanted her to be a teacher, by attending Normal School in Stratford for a couple of years. In the end, Betty taught for less than a year.

Being that their mothers were friends, Betty and Bob Mills courted and four years and one day later they married, July 5, 1958 on Betty’s family farm. She then moved in with Bob and his half built home in Elderslie. Together they completed their home, farmed and built their plumbing, fabricating and electrical business with long hours and hard work over the years. If the truth be told, Betty wasn’t much of a cook when she first married. However, under the fine tutelage of Bob’s mother, Margaret, Betty grew to be an excellent cook!

Up early and to bed late was Betty’s way of moving through the day. This way she was able to deftly care for her numerous big vegetable gardens, variety of farm animals, and myriad of cats. At least once a day, and as recently as Wednesday, both Bob and Betty went to the farm together to check to make sure everything was all right.

It’s always a good practice when living on a farm,

To have a family of cats living in the barn

They always keep the rats and mice at bay and furnish humor too –

Wherever you find kittens there’s usually a laugh or two.

John Posey

Without a doubt, Betty loved her cats. There were always cats around the farm, in the shop, and of course there was that special one, Suzie, who lived in their home. Fed from an eye dropper at birth, Suzie has lived with Bob and Betty for many years.

Betty enjoyed working with her hands and was known for her Copper Craft art. She also liked travelling, especially her fun-filled day trips. Betty and Bob even ventured to the Yukon in the 70’s for a month of travelling and adventure on their own.

Sadly and without warning, Betty’s journey ended at home on Thursday, January 21, 2016 in her 79th year.

She leaves behind her husband and best friend Bob. Betty will be remembered by her long time pen-pal Diana from England that she has corresponded with through mail and by phone since the age of six.

Betty was predeceased by her parents, Leslie and Jean (Bradshaw) Dalgarno and her in-laws, Sydney and Margaret Mills.

Bob will receive friends at Knox United Church, Paisley (399 Goldie Street) on Monday, January 25, 2016 beginning at 1 p.m., with a celebration of Betty’s life to follow at 2 p.m. Ann Maycock celebrant. Spring interment in Douglas Hill Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Rhody Family Funeral Home, Chesley.

In honour of Betty, memorial donations to the Heart and Stoke Foundation or the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
