Obituary of Rumble, Jane Alice of Barrie, Ontario

Posted by on February 25, 2019

Rumble, Jane Alice (nee Denholm)   June 20, 1947 – Feb. 23, 2019.

Sorrowfully, we announce the peaceful passing of Jane Rumble at the Simcoe Hospice on Feb. 23, 2019 after a gallant battle with cancer, diagnosed in 2000. Born in Hamilton in 1947, to parents, Norman John (Jack) Denholm and Catherine Denholm (Galbraith.) Survived by brother John Denholm (Cathy), and predeceased by sisters Ann Denholm Crosby (David) and Susan Denholm (John.) Loving wife of Bruce, mother to Michael Curry (Mary), step mother to Darren (Jennifer) and Carrie (Jason Tricker), and amazing grandma to Jordan, Sean, Carson, Chris, Brandon, Alexa and Graeson. Nieces and nephews, Andrew (Kim, Holly and Jack), Peter (Leaha and Emily) and Kate (Susi and Owen) will miss their spirited aunt. Jane led an exceptional life full of humour, wit, style and grace. She made fast friends everywhere she went, including her final stay at the Royal Victoria Hospital. She spent most of her adult life teaching English and History and leaving her mark as a Guidance Counselor at Barrie Central Collegiate. Along the way, she developed a taste for red leather boots, Globe and Mail cryptic crosswords, travel in distant lands, short game golf, Tina Turner and the Platters, Kempenfelt walking with her many friends and just being plain effervescent. Also, her ardent feminism found an outlet in knitting pink hats!   We will all miss you, Jane, but we will never forget your spirit.

The family wishes to thank all of the people who strove to help Jane through the past months: the North Muskoka LHIN, the wonderful nursing staff at the RVH and Bayshore, the caring nurses and PSWs at Hospice Simcoe, Doctors Kukreti, Russel, Yoon, Zhou, Deboer and Kolesky  and finally, the many friends and neighbours of this wonderful woman.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society, Hospice Simcoe or a charity of your choice would be most appreciated. And, to further honour her, drink in life and remember to pay it forward. Cremation has taken place and interment will be private. A Celebration of Life will take place on Thursday, May 2, 2019 from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm from Liberty North, 100 Caplin Ave., Barrie, ON

Arrangements entrusted to Marshall W. Driver Cremation & Burial Service, 19 Ross St., Barrie. Condolences may be placed at www.drivercremation.ca

Obituary of STRATTON: Dorothy of Belleville

Posted by on January 24, 2019

 

STRATTON, DOROTHY (nee Fleming):

The family sadly announces the death of Dorothy Stratton on Nov 21, 2018 in Belleville, ON in her 93rd year. Dorothy is predeceased by her beloved husband Roy (1996), her brother Sam (2018), special niece Norma (2018) and nephew Bobby; Roy’s sister Florence (Jack) and brother Bert (Mary), and brother-in-law (Leslie); she is survived by her much-loved sister Patricia (Bangor, N Ireland), and special sister-in-law, Audrey (Echo Bay, ON). Dorothy and Roy were proud parents of three boys, David (Lora), Derek (Lorna), and Brian (Bob); doting grandparents to James (Mary Louise), Jeremy (Gina), and Brent (Nichola); and happy aunt and uncle to many nieces and nephews both in Canada and N Ireland. A special thrill to Dorothy was long-awaited great-granddaughter, Alice (2017).

Born in Belfast, N Ireland in 1926, Dorothy arrived in Canada in 1946 as a war bride, joining Roy in Kenora, ON where they quickly became an integral part of town life. In the early years, Dorothy assisted with bookkeeping in the growing RF Stratton business of service stations and auto dealerships. They were heavily involved with Knox United Church, the Lions/Lionelles clubs, along with their sons’ activities. Dorothy was a key member of the Donna Club, the Bridge Club, and the Lake of the Woods Hospital Auxiliary. For 25 years, she prepared 500 pound bales of clothing for northern reserves and actively engaged in other church and town missions.

Skeptical at first of the concept of a cottage outside of town, Dorothy soon grew to love their camp on the Winnipeg River. From early June to late September, camp would resonate with the laughter and activities of family and friends. Summers when her parents were visiting from Ireland added to the joy, and the year they stayed through a Canadian winter was particularly memorable. After Roy’s second retirement, Dorothy and he enjoyed winters away in Maui and later, Florida, where they made many lasting friends.

Dorothy and Roy enjoyed 50 years of wonderful marriage, but after Roy’s passing, she moved “down east” to Picton, ON (1998) to be closer to her sons and grandchildren. Typical of Dorothy, she quickly became active in Picton United Church and the local hospital auxiliary’s Second Time Around Shop, and made many friends. In 2013 she returned to Kenora with eldest son David for one last visit to the town she loved.

In 2014, Dorothy decided to move to Quinte Gardens Retirement Residence in Belleville where she enjoyed participating in all the activities. She soon joined Eastminster United Church, where she participated as she was able.

Dorothy was a woman of deep faith and caring. She lived out her faith in service to others. Her family has an abundance of wonderful memories.

A celebration of her life will be held on November 29, 2018 at 1 pm at Steele Funeral Home, Moira Street Chapel, 30 Moira Street West, Belleville (613-968-2273), with a visitation one hour prior to service.  Cremation has already taken place. Interment in Kenora beside her beloved Roy will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Belleville General Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.

Obituary of TRUDEL, Ivon (Germain)

Posted by on December 26, 2018

Ivon (Germain) Trudel passed away peacefully at home in Belleville, ON Sunday morning after a short battle with cancer. A truly remarkable man, Ivon touched many lives with his boisterous spirit and unwavering humor. He will be forever loved and missed by his partner, children, grandchildren, siblings, and many dear friends, neighbors (human and furry), aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, and coworkers.

The family would like to thank the staff at Bayshore Home Health and Dr. Eric Smith for the kindness and care they showed during Ivon’s last days and to the many family and friends whose messages of love have helped to ease this sad time. In keeping with his wishes, there will be no formal service held. In lieu of flowers or donations, the family invites everyone to cheer the Leafs to a Stanley Cup win – something Ivon would have loved.

He never looked for praises. He was never one to boast.
He just went on loudly working. For those he loved the most.
His dreams were seldom spoken. His wants were very few,
And most of the time his worries, Went unspoken, too.
He was there…a firm foundation. Through all our storms of life,
A sturdy hand to hold onto. In times of stress and strife.
A true friend we could turn to. When times were good or bad.
One of our greatest blessings, The man that we call Dad.
– Adapted from a poem by Karen K. Boyer

His father Henry Coles served in WWII as sergeant in B Company of the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps in charge of radiator and tinsmith division of the vehicle maintenance crews from 1942-1946.  Henry then went on to established North End Radiator Service in 1959.   Safe to say this was the birth place of Bob’s lifelong love affair with cars, especially Corvettes (although his first car was a robin blue convertible 1955 Cadillac). 

After graduating with honours from Galt Collegiate Institute and Vocational School in 1965 (where he pitched for the baseball team, was on the basketball team, student council and many other activities), he was accepted to the College of Optometry of Ontario in Toronto.  In 1967 the school moved to Waterloo and became the University of Waterloo School of Optometry, where he continued his studies.

After four years of dating through school, Bob (age 22) married Gisela Oehne (age 20) of Preston, Ontario in June 1968. Bob graduated May 1969 with a Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree. Together Bob and Gisela set up his first practice after graduation at 111 Wellington Street in Preston, Ontario.  

‘Go West Young Man’.  And so he did…  They sold their practice and moved to Calgary, Alberta in July 1972 to join Dr. Garth Mann at the Bonavista Eye Clinic.  Staying at the then Siesta Inn for this first trip, Bob wandered next door to check out Ranchman’s Cookhouse and Dancehall, which had just opened months prior in April 1972.  It is then and there a friendship with Harris Dvorkin, one of the two Ranchman’s co-founders, was forged. Bob’s love of a Wild West country lifestyle and his entrepreneurial spirit soon made this not only his Calgary Stampede home base, but an office of sorts through his career.  (Mr. Dvorkin passed on April 20, 2017- just one week before Ranchman’s 45th anniversary). 

Bob and Gisela’s first daughter Christine Anne arrived in 1973, their second daughter Melissa Marie in 1975 and first son Jonathan Robert in 1977.  Bob and Gisela were divorced in 1979. 

Gone their separate ways, Gisela brought Joshua in to the world in 1982. Giving him the Coles name, he became one of the four “Coles Kids”.  Bob moved to Phoenix, Arizona from 1983 to 1987 with his second wife Carol and her teenage children Janet and Mark.  Returning to Calgary, Bob and Carol were separated in the early 90s and later divorced.  

Bob lived the rest of his years with his Good Hearted Woman, life and business partner Linda Babuik.  They made many memories of shared interests such as travel (favourites included Hawaii and Las Vegas), country music concerts, rodeos (including of course The Stampede but especially the NFR in Vegas) and their camp ‘homestead’ at Riverbend in Okotoks.  Linda’s daughters Tricia and Keri, together with Keri’s husband Jim and their children Trevor and Taylor (and Taylor’s son Sawyer), added greatly to the support and memories throughout these years. 

His children wish to remember him as the smart witted, extremely intelligent, entrepreneurial, musically talented and charismatic person he was. He was an avid car fan, having owned more than two dozen Corvettes over his lifetime and no stranger to twisting a wrench here or there. He was musically inclined, playing guitar, banjo and singing. He was a quick wit and at times a prankster.  He had a love for snakeskin cowboy boots, fishing (including Ice fishing), Disneyland, Canadian Tire, billiards of all sorts, Colt cigars, Vegas, Banff, Elvis worthy jewelry, dry roasted peanuts, fur coats (he has a long family line of fur trappers, including pioneering life long employees of the Hudson Bay Company), steak dinners, egg salad sandwiches, Stetson hats, big belt buckles, cooking, the country lifestyle and Christmas decorating among other things.  He was certainly the only optometrist wearing pressed black Wranglers, cowboy boots and a Stetson with his lab coat.

In keeping with his wishes, there will be no formal service.  His children gathered in Banff for a tribute the Doc would be proud of.  The Man.  The Myth.  The Legend.  He was one of a kind.

“He’s done some wrong, he’s done some right

Won and lost some fights

Highs and lows, that’s the way it goes

It ain’t always sweet tea

Lovin’, runnin’, son of a gun, like an old outlaw

But ain’t that country”  -The Cadillac Three
