God called your name so gently,

That only you could hear.

No one heard the footsteps

Of the angel drawing near.

Softly from the shadows,

There came a gentle call.

You closed your eyes

And went to sleep,

You quietly left us all.”

Obituary of Eavis, Ronald Earl of North Sydney, Nova Scotia

W.J. Dooley’s Funeral Service Ltd. North Sydney, N.S.

 

 

Eavis, Ronald Earl – AUGUST 6, 1941 ~ FEBRUARY 21, 2019 (AGE 77)

Ronald Earl Eavis, North Sydney
We, the family of Ron Eavis, age 77, are saddened to announce the passing of our husband, father, brother and uncle on Thursday, February 21, 2019, at the Irish Cove wing of Harbourstone Enhanced Care Facility.
Born in North Sydney on August 6, 1941, Ron was the son of Clayton and Margaret (Strickland) Eavis.  Back in the day, Dad was an avid fisherman and hunter.  Many happy days were spent roaming the woods of Middle River with his brothers.  He also loved watching hockey and sharing a cup of coffee with his Tim Hortons buddies while getting the “scoop around town”.  Ron was a member of Local 682 Pipefitters Union and his profession allowed him to travel to various places across the country for work.
He is survived by his wife, Joan (Quirk), son Ronnie Eavis (Michelle), his brothers Phil (Karen) Eavis and Tom Eavis, sister-in-law Bonnie, many cousins, nieces and nephews as well as close friends Glen Knott, Vince Garnier and Flossie Oakes.
Besides his parents, Dad was predeceased by brothers Cyril and Buddy Eavis and sister-in-law Yvonne Eavis.
Dad loved a good joke and to get people going, but the twinkle in his eye always gave him away.  Even though during recent years his health required the need for long term care, the wonderful staff at Harbourstone Enhanced Care (Irish Cove wing) never treated Dad like a patient or a resident; instead, they treated him like family, and for that, we are eternally grateful.
At the family’s request, there will be no visitation.  Cremation has taken place and a service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday in the W.J. Dooley Funeral Home Chapel with Diane Kempt, DLM officiating.  Burial will take place in Holy Cross Cemetery, North Sydney at a later date.
Memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of NS or a charity of choice.  Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.wjdooley.com.

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
