Obituary of CLARK, Paulina (Kilbertus) of Grand Bend, age 82

Posted by on May 28, 2018

Paulina Clark

(nee Kilburtus)

23 April 1936 – 10 May 2018

We lost Paulina to effing cancer at the Exeter, Ontario, hospital. Her birthday was two weeks earlier and she was pleased about making it to 82. Last summer she received the terrible terminal diagnosis. She lived her final months in her beloved and idyllic home in Grand Bend, lovingly cared for by tag-teaming daughters, a revolving cast of family and friends, and wonderful professionals. The songbirds, card games, puzzles and Netflix helped, too.

Paulina made it to the finish line with dignity, pride, humour, trademark stubbornness, and a loving and generous heart as big as Lake Huron. She lived and died the way she wanted. Even on the worst final days she would find a smile, crack an impish grin, utter a funny profanity. She outlived by two years the love of her life, Len Ballantyne, got to see her three children flourish and marry, and watched her grandkids grow up. Late in life she found a new best friend, her neighbour Wendy Atmore.

She was born in Montreal to immigrant parents. Her father, Valentino Kilbertus, died when she was three; her mother Alma went back to work and placed her daughter in foster care. Paulina had an itinerant childhood, as her foster mother moved around the continent, with stops (and new schools for Paulina) in Halifax, Winnipeg, Michigan and Toronto. Paulina’s teenaged years found her in Ste. Rose, Quebec, where she met her first husband Richard Clark. After the divorce, she raised her kids as a single mom north of Montreal in Blainville, Quebec, and eventually moved to Ontario, where she met and fell in love with Len. They shared and stoked each other’s love for line dancing, Texas, cards, dominoes, every gadget known to mankind, and Lake Huron’s beautiful beaches. They threw many parties at their home in the Cove at Grand Bend, and were regulars at the Legion Branch 498.

Paulina was an avid gardener and creative crafter. She loved to dance, and boy, oh, boy, did she love to shop! With her loss, we have warned Wal-Mart, Giant Tiger and Publishing Clearing House to expect a drop in profits.

Paulina will be terribly missed by many: her daughter Lianne Clark and her husband Randy Hall, daughter Nancy Kay Clark and husband Doug Bennet, son Ron Clark and wife Michelle Johnson Clark, her adoring grandkids Nathan, Eliza, Raymond, Brianna, Mackenzie, and many neighbours and friends, especially Wendy Atmore and Mark Broughner.

There’s a new card shark in heaven.

Special thanks to Lambton County EMS and the team at South Huron Hospital. Donations may be made to the South Huron Hospital Foundation.

Visitation: Friday, May 18, 4 to 7 p.m.  Memorial Service:  Saturday, May 19, from 10 to 12 p.m. at the T. Harry Hoffman & Sons Funeral Home, 118 Dashwood Main Street, Dashwood.

Obituary of HUMPHRIES: MARY ELIZABETH of Lunenburg, NS Formerly of Toronto, Ontario

Posted by on April 6, 2018

images-4

It is with great sadness that the family of Mary Elizabeth Humphries, 92, of Lunenburg, announces her death on Thursday, February 22, 2018, at the Halifax Infirmary, Halifax.?? Born in Evanston, Illinois, she was the daughter of Andrew William and Elizabeth Holbrook (Marsales) Murdison.

In the course of her long life, Mary was an entrepreneur, scientist, educator, consumer advocate, broadcaster, author, volunteer, frustrated gardener, cat lover, singer, family historian and one of nature’s great enthusiasts. She never stopped learning new things, and was optimistic, curious and adventurous.

She grew up in Thornhill, Ontario, the youngest of four children. A brilliant student, Mary obtained both her B.A. and M.A. from University College, University of Toronto on full scholarships. She married English-born Michael Humphries in 1949, and became a specialist in textile and dye chemistry for Croy Knitting Mills.

An activist as well as a scientist, Mary helped shape the new Consumer Association of Canada from the 1950s and she broadcast her own weekly national consumer program on CBC Radio in the ‘60s. Mary taught textile science at Seneca College in Toronto for over 25 years. She was a Fellow of the Institute of Textile Science and a valued committee and board member for groups including the Metric Commission, Costume Society of Ontario, Jane Austen Society, Bata Shoe Museum, UC Book Sale, Maritime Concert Opera and many others. She made many, many friends through her professional and volunteer work.

She was an entrepreneur, writing and self publishing her own textbooks and swatch sets, which were eventually published by Prentice-Hall internationally and became some of the standard works in the field. She would definitely want us to remind you at this point that “a fibre is not a fabric”!

Mary is survived by her daughter, Nina Scott-Stoddart (David Mosey), Lunenburg; son Thomas (aka Chi) (Christa), Lahr, Germany; grandchildren, Dennis (Lydia) and Kai (Miriam Rother), Germany as well as her sister Jessie Wesley of Ontario and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sister Lucy Noble, her brother Andrew Murdison, her niece Heather Parekh and her nephew William Noble.

We would all like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the medical staff, especially the nurses, at South Shore General and the Halifax Infirmary, for their humane kindness and compassion , not only for Mary but for us.

In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Second Story Women’s Shelter in Lunenburg or SHAID Tree Animal Shelter of Lunenburg County would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements were by Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home in Lunenburg.

Obituary of WINTERS, Henry “Hank” Collins of Grand Bend, in his 77th year

Posted by on March 20, 2018

WINTERS: In sorrow, we acknowledge the passing of Henry “Hank” Collins Winters of Grand Bend, Ontario on Sunday, March 18, 2018 in his seventy-seventh year. Hank spent his last days in the company of his family and many friends, under the superb care of the Palliative Care Team at Bluewater Health in Sarnia, Ontario. Beloved husband, for fifty-three years, of Nancy (Edwardson) Winters, Hank is also survived by his children Elizabeth (David Matheson) and Philip (Gail Winters) and four grandchildren: Lauren Cummings Winters, William Matheson, Kaydence Matheson and William Henry Winters. Elder son of the late Eleanor (McRobie) Winters and the late Honourable Robert Henry Winters P.C. Brother of Marny (Marc Pearsall) of Toronto and the late Richard Winters.

Hank considered the world his home and steel his industry. But he was happiest as a child in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, where he loved the smell of the sea. In his retirement he was thrilled to discover something of that same delight in Grand Bend, with its legion of friends, volunteer opportunities, dazzling beach and three entirely new pursuits which he passionately embraced. He learned to sing barbershop with the Seaforth Harmony Kings; achieved a black belt in Karate at the age of seventy-five; and swam his way to a gold medal at the Ontario Masters championship. Even when his illness was most challenging, he always focused his attention on concerns outside himself, mostly to the benefit of his family.

A supremely thoughtful man, Hank hated to miss a meeting of the Red Bowl Society of philosophers. He was proud to catalogue his reading and his list reveals a selective and significant personal library. It was his final comfort to listen to his family reading to him the story of a round-the-world motorcycle adventure, one of his few unrealized ambitions. We now reluctantly release him to a grand new adventure, fueled by our gratitude and his own smiling enthusiasm.

On Sunday, April 8, 2018, the family will host a gathering of remembrance for Hank at Oakwood Resort, Grand Bend, at two o’clock p.m. A private family interment will be arranged in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in the fall. If desired, memorial donations (payable by cheque) to Lakeshore Eco-Network would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to the T. Harry Hoffman & Sons Funeral Home, Dashwood.

TOMPKINS, CORKY – Clitheroe (Corky) Wellington Tompkins at the age of 87 fell asleep in death to await a resurrection to a paradise earth. He loved this hope and talked about it to anyone with a listening ear. Knowing Corky meant you knew of his favourite place on earth, Biscotasing.
