EGGINS: Muriel

Posted by on December 9, 2017

After a long and chaotic life of 91 years, Muriel died peacefully at RVH on Wednesday, December 6.  She leaves behind a grieving family – her husband of 69 years, Doug.  A sister, Nora.  Children – Frank (Elizabeth), Douglas (Jessica) and Connie (Joe).  Grandchildren –Kate, Rachel and Krystina Eggins;  Adam, Daniel and Jeremy Pace; Chandler, Josh and William Eggins.  Great grandchildren – Jack, Clare and Gabe, Sigwan, Avery and Nicole, Ethan and Hannah. In spite of her terror  of water, Muriel came to Canada in 1952 by boat, with two young children.  She and Doug and the two, later three, children led a bit of a gypsy life.  After living in over twenty locations between Chelsea Quebec and Shipka Ontario they finally decided on their present location in 2002. Doug and Muriel retired in Barrie and have lived a record 15 years at the same address.  Muriel was an artist. She enjoyed sculpting, but found her true calling when she discovered quilting and then spinning and weaving.  Muriel and Doug enjoyed camping in the great outdoors of northern Ontario, especially Pancake Bay.  Despite her sometimes chilly Britishness, she had great warmth that most people recognized.  We cannot begin to describe how very much she will be missed.

Family and friends may call at ADAMS FUNERAL HOME (445 St. Vincent Street, Barrie Ontario) Visitation will be held on Tuesday December 12th, 2017 from 11-12 with a Service at 12 and a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to RVH or the Arthritis Society or Covenant House. Messages of condolences may be forwarded through adamsfuneralhome.ca

1934-2017, John Douglas Hines
With deep sadness, we wish to communicate the passing of “Doug” Hines – a long-time resident of the GTA, also known as Papa Smurf, Wee Dougie, Cowboy Doug and Big “D,” in his eighty-fourth year.  In his final moments, at Etobicoke General hospital, Doug experienced the profound joy of having his loving children, grandchildren and great grandchild by his side.   He will be greatly missed by his children Michael Hines, Catherine (Betsy) Hines, and James (Jamie) Hines; grandchildren, Sarah Hines, Alex Hines, Hudson Hines, Christen Latham, Rebecca Laffrade, James Wimpory, & Ashley Hines, and great grandchildren, Wynter Zuch, Charlie Laffrade, Carter Laffrade, and by countless extended relatives and friends.  Doug was pre-deceased by his parents Catherine Hines (nee McClelland) and John Hines, sister Marilyn “Sissy” Ball (the late Karl), and is survived by his sister, Jeanne Fry (Allan) and nephew Jeff. Doug loved his family with his entire being and had tremendous pride in his heart for his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  We are eternally grateful that Doug has left us a legacy of love.
Doug enjoyed the outdoors, but only from his horse or a convertible, or by the BBQ. His love of dogs and horses were his passions, along with his great love of sports – auto-racing, hockey and football, in particular. We will all miss those special times with him while he enjoyed and shared his passions & his great love of unique comments & profanity not just while watching sports but reading the paper and especially while driving.
Friends and family are invited to email celebratingdoughines@gmail.com for information regarding a Tapenade and Caesars celebration in toasting Doug on Saturday, November 25th, from 2pm-4pm. These were his favorite weekend specialties. Anyone who knew Doug, was also aware that he had an enormous passion for horses. In lieu of flowers, he would love donations be made in his name to Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue at www.whhrescue.com or please give to Pancreatic Cancer Canada to a personal page at http://donate.pancreaticcancercanada.ca/site/TR/DIY-FundraiseforUs/DIY-FundraiseforUs?px=1150296&pg=personal&fr_id=1296
