TEAHEN, John Joseph of Grand Bend

Posted by on February 5, 2013

TEAHEN, John Joseph:   Our hearts are saddened by the
death of our dad, Jack, on Tuesday, February 5, 2013. Our parents rarely did
anything apart so it comes as no surprise that dad followed the love of his
life, our mom, Doris, 27 days after she died.  Their love, laughter and devotion
have been an inspiration to all of us. His children Beth and Pat Breen, Erin and
Ted Lawson, and Jane and Leonard Jones as well as his grandchildren Sarah and
Andrew, Michael, Kyle, Kate and Andy, William, Michele and Andrew will miss his
support, unique sense of humour and offers of drives, drinks and afternoons on
the deck. Jack will be missed by his sisters and brother-in-law, Betty Lou Gibb
and Ken (deceased) and Joan and Leo Clement and by his brother-in-law Pat King
and Sylvia. Jack was predeceased by his sister, Doris Reader. Uncle Jack is
fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews. His cars, especially convertibles,
were a real hit. Jack received his BA from Assumption College in Windsor. For
over 30 years, Jack proudly worked in sales and marketing for CIP, a job he
thoroughly enjoyed and which took the family to Montreal, Toronto and London.
Many happy hours were spent at cottages in Wasaga and Grand Bend with wonderful
friends. The family wish to thank family, close friends and colleagues, past and
present, who have been so supportive over the years. We are so grateful that dad
was able to attend mom’s funeral and relive so many fond memories with family
and friends. We wish to acknowledge the care and compassion of the entire CCAC
team as well as the staff and volunteers at Lambton Elderly Outreach and St.
Joseph’s Hospice where dad and the family received such loving support over the
past two months. A Funeral Mass will be held at Immaculate Heart of Mary
Church, Grand Bend on Friday, February 8, 2013 at 11 a.m.,
with burial
to follow at Pinery Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St.
Joseph’s Hospice Sarnia, with thanks from the family.  T. Harry Hoffman
& Sons Funeral Home, Dashwood, entrusted with arrangements.

Picco, Renata (nee Pizzolato)

Posted by on February 5, 2013

web_Picco_RenataPassed on to the next stage of her life on February 5, 2013 following a brief illness. Eldest daughter of the late Gilda (Massaglia) and Antonio Pizzolato. Dear sister of Niki Marlo, and sister-in-law of Isabella Alberghetti (Hamilton). Predeceased by the love of her life, Marciano Picco, who shared in all the pleasures and struggles that life offered them.

Renata was a cultured, generous, and loving woman who had to adapt to difficult situations throughout her life and did so without succumbing to adversity. She had a big heart — always empathetic and trying to help out those in need.

Renata’s five children were her greatest challenge and achievement: David (Diane), Roman (Sharron), Max (Velma), Joyce (the late Jean-Marie Lirola), and Fabian. They will miss her unfailing love, guidance and devotion. Her grandchildren (Anita, Myla, Adrien, and Kara) were her pride and joy, as were her out-of-town great-grandchildren (Lauren, Tabitha, and Brianna). There is nothing she would not have done for them.

She is fondly remembered by her nieces and nephews in Canada and the U.S. Until she was no longer able, she kept in close contact with cousins and friends in Milan, Verona, and her much beloved native city of Torino, Italy. Her godson, Larry Tolot (Michigan), and siblings Lisa, Laura and Lenora remember the great dinners and friendship that our families shared. Renata is in the prayers of her dear friends in Toronto, Halina and Kurt von dem Hagen, Jacek Kalita, and many members of the parish communities Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and St. Angela Merici Church, where she served as liturgical reader for many years. She will be missed by all and remembered in the many hearts that she touched.

 

As in the case of our dad, mom’s end-of-life was a lengthy process that allowed her great faith and courage to shine in the face of agony. Her appreciation of life’s simple pleasures, her benevolence, and her sense of humour endured to the end. She watches over us lovingly from Heaven now, blowing kisses to us, with her beloved Marciano once more by her side.

Our gratitude to the kind, caring staff of both Hotel Dieu and Metropolitan Hospitals. Our deeply heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Royal Marquis Retirement Residence and Extendicare Southwood Lakes where our mother lived her last two years. May all those who work with the elderly and have compassion for them be greatly blessed!

Mom and dad were always exceptionally generous to a number of different charities. If you so desire, you may choose to honour her by making a donation to the charity of your choice. Visiting Friday 3-5 and 7-9pm with prayers at 4:30pm. Funeral Saturday at 8:45 am from FAMILIES FIRST 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor 519-969-5841.. to St. Angela Merici Church for Funeral Mass at 9:30am. Entombment Heavenly Rest Cemetery.
