Elmer was a kind man, always active, energetic and as sharp as a tack. He treated people equally and with respect and really listened to what they had to say before judging them. He was always ready to share a laugh with his many friends and always happy to say a friendly hello to anyone. He loved to play bridge, billiards, golf and cribbage and was an active Christian man with much faith in his belief.
He is survived by his beloved wife Joan, his son Jeff (Marianne), daughter Kelly (Dave), 2 grandsons Christian (Amanda) and Cameron, 5 sisters and 1 brother.

Obituary of MURRAY, Alison M. of Ottawa

Posted by on June 24, 2018

    

It is with a deep sense of profound loss that we announce the sudden passing of Alison Marie Murray on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at The Heart Institute on Carling Avenue in Ottawa, Ontario at the age of 48. In Alison’s final hours she was in the presence of her loving sister Deborah Murray.

Alison the daughter of the late Harvey Murray and Nancy Hardy (Martini) was born on March 16, 1970 at the Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Grimsby, Ontario.

Alison was a woman that had many facets. She was not only a loving Mother, Sister, Family Member and Friend she was a woman that believed in community and strived to make the lives of those around her as positive as humanly possible. Alison volunteered her time to various causes that raised social awareness and was an integral part of these worthwhile causes. Alison was also a Founding Member of an Annual event that raises awareness of Victims of Racism, Gender Inequality and Bullying.

Alison a graduate of Devry College attained her Executive Assistant Diploma in the City of Hamilton, Ontario. When Alison moved to Ottawa one of her goals was to further her education regarding her passion that she had for Computers and Technology. On May 20, 2018 Alison became a graduate of Willis College in Ottawa with Honor Roll of Distinction (90% + overall) in Network Security Professional. That was a highlight in her life as she worked diligently to attain that specific goal.

Alison was a hard worker and any employment that she has had throughout her life she gave of herself 100%.

When Alison was not studying or working she spent time reading, writing and worked on creating art projects for various holidays and functions. Alison enjoyed writing poetry about life and she had a profound style in the use of her creativity and intelligence when expressing herself with the written word.

She loved to dance and sing and was a pleasure to watch when she was exuding such joy in that moment.

Alison also loved football and baseball. The Hamilton Tiger Cats were her favorite team and she enjoyed attending the games to cheer them on.

Alison was full of life and lived it to her fullest. She had a smile that would light up any room and her infectious laugh made you want to laugh along with her.

Alison also truly enjoyed her coffee (“Timmies”) and those who knew her would tease her endlessly about her favorite beverage. However, with coffee in hand Alison enjoyed having conversations about not only the serious goings on in life but the lighter moments. Those were times that her gentle and humorous nature shined through and will be one of the many copious memories that her loved ones will have of her.

A Scottish Poem for Alison

“She is not lost our dearest love. Nor has she traveled far. Just stepped inside home’s lovliest room. And left the door Ajar.”

Alison will be sadly missed by her Step Father Paul Martini of Stoney Creek, Ontario.

Alison is survived by her Sister Deborah and Brothers Ray (Lisa, wife), Richard (Kathy, wife), Robert and pre deceased Adam. Half Sisters Tricia Martini and Lori Martini (Joe) Trapasso. Step Sister Lisa and Step Brothers Ronnie, Andy, Brian and Stephen.

Loving Mother to her son Brandon James Murray (Bryanna, girlfriend)

Loving Grandmother to Lillianna (Brandon, Father) and Arianna (Bryanna, Mother)

Loving Aunt to Domenic and Carly Trapasso (Lori and Joe, Parents) and Jessica and Chantelle (Step Sister Lisa, Mother)

Alison will be profoundly missed and forever loved by her Best Friends Nalini, Vivi and Henry. She was not only their Best Friend but she was their Sister.

Alison will be sadly missed by all whose lives that she has touched. Although she had her family and close friends Alison had a way of making anyone that she met feel welcome and a part of something special.

Alison you will always be your “Daddy’s Little Girl” (Harvey Murray)

The family and friends of Alison would like to send their sincere, heartfelt gratitude to Whelan Funeral Home for providing caring and exemplary services at this difficult time.

A Celebration of Life service was held at Whelan Funeral Home, 515 Cooper Street. Ottawa, Ontario on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 between 2:00pm and 5:00pm.
