Obituary of COLES: Dr. Robert Ellis of Calgary, Alberta

Posted by on December 9, 2018

 

“Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys….let ‘em be doctors and lawyers and such”.  But, what if your baby is a doctor AND a cowboy??

The passing of Dr. Robert Ellis Coles on November 26, 2018 is announced by his daughter Christine Coles (her husband Dave and their daughter Phoenix), his daughter Melissa Flynn (her daughters Cypris and Jordis), his son Jonathan Coles (his wife Jessica, their daughters Andrew and Sawyer and son Jeven) and their brother Joshua Coles.

Robert, aka Bob/Doc, was born an only child at the Norfolk General Hospital in Simcoe, Ontario on March 17, 1946.  He is survived by many cousins, including Dale Coles who was like a brother growing up.  He is predeceased by his father Henry Ellis Coles (January 1, 1923 Port Dover, Ontario – April 16, 2008 Calgary, Alberta), his mother Edith (Albert) Coles (March 6, 1920 Moosehorn, Manitoba – March 12, 2009 Calgary, Alberta), his maternal grandparents Fred Albert and Christina Margaret Aitken and paternal grandparents Charles Elgin Coles and Ethel Charlton.

Bob grew up in Port Rowan, Norfolk County, moving to Cambridge (Galt), Ontario in 1957. 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.

Obituary of Ritchie,(nee Lawrence) Mary Irene

Posted by on September 17, 2018

May 15, 1946 – August 30, 2018

Mary died last week after a rich life and a brief battle with cancer. She lived with joy to the end and died peacefully surrounded by love.

Mary is survived by her children: Colleen, Andrea, Jennifer (Greg Berry), Matthew, Jacob (Krista), her grandchildren: Hayden, Julia, Adele, Betty, and Lydia, her sister Jean (Fred Smith), sister-in-law Patricia Lawrence and nieces and nephews Katherine, Adam and Meaghan. She is pre-deceased by her parents Geraldine and Bill Lawrence, her brother Patrick Lawrence.

She trained to become a Registered Nurse at the Victoria General (1967) and went on to earn her B.Sc. Nursing from St. Francis Xavier (1998). Her career in nursing spanned more than 50 years, beginning and ending with work at the IWK (“The Children’s”). In between, she worked at Twin Oaks Memorial, the Nova Scotia Hospital and as part of the Eastern Shore Seniors Mental Health Outreach team.

Mary saw beauty in everyone and everything. She was always creative, always making. In recent years she painted in watercolour and made collage, and throughout her life her gardens, her quilts, her sewing, her preserves were all outlets for creating beauty and sharing it with those in her world. She had a special love for the ocean and spent hours and days at beaches with family and friends, in all seasons.

Mary was an inspired and loving Mom and Nanny and a trusted friend to many. Through her tireless support for others at home, at work and in the wider world, she was a model of how to build community. She is deeply loved and will be terribly missed.

A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday September 16th

at the Portia White Atrium (in Citadel High) 1855 Trollope St. 

1 – 1:30pm with a party to follow 1:30 – 4:00pm

Obituary of DILLON, Mary Ellen of Cobourg, Ontario

Posted by on September 4, 2018

After a beautiful and full life, and surrounded by her dear family, Mary Ellen Dillon (née Wlliams) passed away on Monday, September 3, 2018.

Mary Ellen was born in Toronto to Audrey and C.R. “Reg” Williams. She grew up and went to school in the city, but as a child learned to appreciate camping, swimming, and canoeing with her mother in Muskoka. After heading off to Europe as a young adult to work as an au pair, Mary Ellen was proud to return to Canada and become part of the University of Toronto’s first Bachelor of Nursing class.

It was at the U of T where she met Delanty Dillon, whom she later married. “Del” remained the love of her life. Del and Mary Ellen relocated to Del’s hometown of Cobourg, where Del went on to become a beloved high school teacher and head of the physical education department at the then newly opened CDCI East. Mary Ellen and Del remained active members of their social and St. Michael’s Church communities. They not only celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2009, but also were at Maple Leaf Gardens on May 2, 1967 to witness their revered Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup.

For Mary Ellen, the idea of “home” was always foremost in her heart. This was evident early in her career as a public health nurse when she did house-call checkups on newborn babies and their moms, initially in Toronto neighbourhoods for newcomers to the country, then for the Health Unit in Cobourg. Not surprisingly, she always seemed most relaxed and content when she was holding a baby in her arms, whether it was a patient, her own child, or one of her nine grandchildren. Her family remained anchored at the home she and Del established by the lake in Cobourg, no matter where in the country or the world her children ventured. Family and friends and neighbours were always welcomed into their home with humour and grace, curiosity and appreciation.

Following her career as a nurse, and after raising four children, she chose to enter the world of real estate sales, and this became a true devotion and delight. Starting with Frank Real Estate, she eventually became an Agent and Broker with Royal LePage. In a career touching five decades, Mary Ellen helped countless families find their dream homes in and around Cobourg and the Northumberland Hills. Highly principled, she valued honesty, communication, and integrity more than anything else in her business. By the time she had pounded in her last SOLD sign at the age of 80, she had developed many deep and lasting relationships with clients and colleagues alike.

Mary Ellen’s pace slowed slightly in recent years after the passing of her beloved Del, and subsequently because of some health concerns. It is a great testament to her care community that Mary Ellen remained bright, happy, and content in her own home. She was forever grateful to all her friends, neighbours, and faith community for their continual support and prayers. Special thanks to PSWs from Home Instead, St. Elizabeth, and Cardinal Nannies, and to the compassionate staff at the Northumberland Hills Hospital.

Left with warm feelings of deep appreciation and love are Mary Ellen’s four children: Mary Dillon (Louis Robitaille) of Lunenburg County, NS; Joe Dillon (Ruth Lillington) of Lindsay, ON; Joanne Dillon-McKay (Eric McKay) of Orléans, ON; and Michael Dillon (Moira Easton) of Shawnigan Lake, BC. Also feeling well-loved are Mary Ellen’s grandchildren: Madeleine and Marcel Robitaille; Tristan Lillington; Mark, Reta-Anne, Lauran, and Patrick McKay; and Jesanna and Séamus Dillon-Easton.

A funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at 10 a.m. at St. Michael’s Church 379 Division St, Cobourg, with interment at St. Michael’s Cemetery thereafter. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, Cobourg, 30 King Street East. In lieu of flowers and in recognition of Mary Ellen’s spirit, the family would appreciate a donation to Toronto Hospital for Sick Children ( www.sickkids.ca ), Northumberland Hills Hospital ( www.nhh.ca ), World Vision Canada ( www.worldvision.ca ), or an offering of a simple act of kindness. Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.

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.

images-4

Betty Isabel (nee Miller) Fletcher was born on September 1, 1921, in Brockville, Ontario, to Frank Archer and Rena (nee Dowell) Miller. She was their only child. Betty stayed in Brockville until 1945. Through her volunteer involvement with the Canadian Army’s officer training camp in Brockville, she met her husband, Newton Herndon Fletcher, who had traveled up from his home in Indianapolis, Indiana, to join the Canadian forces during World War II. They were married in February 1943.
After the war, they moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where Herndon, or Fletch as he was popularly known, attended Harvard Law School while Betty was employed in clerical positions. Eventually they moved to New York and settled in Westchester County. While Fletch worked as a corporate lawyer for Uniroyal in Manhattan, Betty continued to work in clerical and editorial capacities. In 1956, their one and only child, Diana Gail, was born. As a family, they attended the Presbyterian Church in Irvington, New York.
Subsequently, they lived in Southbury, Connecticut; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Athens, Ontario, Canada; Sarasota, Florida. They both loved golf and curling. Betty adored playing bridge. And they treasured their numerous overseas trips. Betty liked having a couple of pets most of her life, especially their English bulldog, Cromwell.
After Fletch passed away in May 2000, Betty lived alone in Sarasota, Florida, until she moved back to Canada to be with Diana and her husband, Ian, in 2014. She ended her life on June 27, 2017, in the country in which she began it, having enjoyed a varied, active and edifying life.
Betty is survived by her daughter, Diana Gail Fletcher-deZeeuw, and son-in-law, Ian Arie de Zeeuw, of Deep Brook, Nova Scotia, as well as second and third cousins in Eastern Ontario.
