CORCORAN, Ellen Corcoran - Obituary | Print |


Corcoran_Ellen(December 4, 1941 – March 24, 2015)

Now I know what broken-hearted means.

Today I lost the love of my life for the past 39 years. Ellen was the most honest and kindest person I have ever known.

She never spoke ill of anyone, had so much energy and was passionate in her beliefs.

Ellen spent the last five weeks in long term care and passed away quickly in the night.

I would like to thank the many friends who supported me through this very difficult time.

In particular Kathy Pratt, I couldn’t have got through all this without you.

My thanks to the staff at Ballycliffe Lodge in Ajax, you have been wonderful.

A celebration of Ellen’s life will be held on April 11, 2015.

Details to follow.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations on behalf of the War Amps.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Owen “OT” Terrence McCarthy in his 92nd year, on Tuesday, March 24, 2015.

Owen was a loving husband, supportive father, grandfather and great grandfather, and a cherished friend to many.
