With great sadness, the family announces the death of Leah Madeline “Peggy” Kelly nee Bailey (formerly of Sarnia) on June 14, 2018 in Strathroy at the age of 93.

 

Peggy, against the odds of her time and  situation,  earned full scholarships to the University of Manchester UK where she studied chemistry and botany.  After graduation, she briefly taught high school science in Manchester before moving to London to work as a research scientist at the Ministry of Food.  She then met her future husband Norman Kelly who would be emigrating to Canada after which she herself emigrated and they were married in Hamilton in 1948. Peggy worked in the lab at Hamilton General until the birth of daughter Judy.

 

By 1952 and now living in Sarnia they raised 3 children after which she returned to teaching at the New Hope School in Sarnia until retirement in the early 1980’s.

 

Peggy was a wonderful conversationalist and listener. She loved to read and follow politics.  Both her and Norm were early members of the Unitarians of Sarnia and Port Huron.  Her other great love was gardening and flowers of which she was very knowledgeable.

 

Donating time to charity was important and Peggy volunteered for many organizations over the years from the March of Dimes going door to door in the 1950s with kids in tow, as well as The Cancer Society manning information booths, senior’s recreation activities at Marshall Gowland along with husband Norm, the transit commission and lastly helping out with the VON’s senior toe nail clinics.  Peggy was also a financial supporter for Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto as well as a few other charities.

 

Predeceased by her husband Norm (1994), daughter Judy (2010) and cousin Madeline Howarth. Peggy leaves behind her daughter Pauline Newell (Wayne Chanyi), Peter Kelly (Larry). Her two grandchildren Lori Newell and Jason (Valery Henley) Newell.  Four great grandchildren, Tyler (Caitlin), Leah, Sloan and Paige and her first great great grandchild Ryker. She will be missed by her niece Kathy Sitter.

 

We wish to thank the wonderful staff at Sprucedale Care Centre in Strathroy for their wonderful care and support.

Obituary of MARINIGH, Vittoria (nee Mariuz) of Sarnia

On June 2nd, Vittoria Marinigh (nee Mariuz) passed peacefully and with grace in her 94th year at Bluewater Health. She was predeceased by her husband Aldo (1998) and nine siblings. She is survived by her children Daniel (Patricia Dillabough), Paula (Paul Turner), Brenda (Michael Gilroy), Diana and Roberta, and by her grandchildren Julia, Brian, Jenna, Michael and Melissa. She is lovingly remembered by her nieces Dorothy Livingston and Betty Minato, and many more nieces and nephews in Canada, the United States and Italy.

Vittoria immigrated from Pordenone, Italy in 1949 with the support of her brother Giovanni and settled in Sarnia with her brother Fino and sister-in-law Julia Mariuz.  She was soon employed at Prestolite and was proud to purchase her first home. Married in 1955, she and Aldo raised five children.  For Vittoria, being a wife and mother were her most important roles.  Later, Vittoria worked in the custom drapery and catalogue departments of Sears Canada.  After retiring she enjoyed travelling the world with her husband. Vittoria treasured being a nonna and showered her grandchildren with love, support and encouragement.  Gathering family around her table to enjoy her traditional Italian cooking and homemade wine was one of her greatest pleasures.  An accomplished seamstress and knitter, Vittoria loved gifting her beautiful creations to others.  She enjoyed tending her vegetable garden and canning and preserving its harvest.  Not one to shy away from a challenge, she was an enthusiastic cribbage opponent.  Vicky always looked forward to her weekly coffee club dates with her friends.

Throughout her life Vittoria was guided by faith, love and devotion to family. She faced life’s challenges with tenacity and courage. Vittoria had an independent spirit and lovingly maintained the family home until her passing.  She will be remembered by the example she set.

Riposa in pace Mamma.

The family wishes to thank Doctor Niall O’Sullivan for his kindness and care.

Friends and family will be received at McKenzie & Blundy Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 431 N. Christina St. Sarnia on Wednesday from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m.  Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Church on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at 11 a.m. Entombment at Our Lady of Mercy Mausoleum.
