After retiring, Mom & Dad enjoyed traveling, spending summers at their trailer in Haliburton and their winters in Florida. We will remember him for his unconditional love, his pure heart, his brilliant mind and his devilish humour.

Dad was predeceased by his loving wife Marjorie, in 2006.

QUINN, William 'Bill' Quinn Obituary | Print |

QUINN, William 'Bill' -

Quinn_BillIt is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Bill Quinn on Sunday, August 17, 2014.

The only son of the late Jim and Nellie Quinn of Walney Island, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria in the UK, Bill is succeeded by his loving life partner Joyce Yu and in the UK by his sister Barbara, niece Pamela and his great nephew Cayleb.

A graduate of Furness Technical School Bill served his apprenticeship at Vickers Limited Shipbuilding Group before becoming an independent contractor working across the UK and in Montreal for a short time.

Bill started with SNC-Lavalin through Kilborn in 1980, after immigrating from Barrow-in-Furness, England to start a new life in Canada. Bill always said he would stay only a few years and then return home, but they were fortunate that he never did leave. Bill worked with SNC-Lavalin for over 34 years and he was a great leader providing a wealth of knowledge to the Piping Department.

Bill was a member of the site engineering team that spent many years working on our autoclave projects for Barrick in Nevada. He made lasting friendships during those assignments and became one of SNC-Lavalin's leading piping designers who was always number one on clients’ lists when preparing the site teams for start-up and commissioning.

Bill was a natural and talented athlete excelling in a range of sports including soccer, cricket, squash and golf. He played professional football for his beloved Barrow A.F.C. in the English league where he was the team's leading scorer in the 1973-74 season. Bill was also a very capable cricketer playing for Vickerstown in the North Lancashire and District Cricket League where he topped the Division I bowling table in cricket for the number of wickets taken on a number of occasions and was a member of Melville Cup winning side.

In Canada he was a great asset to his company's soccer team and its several league and cup wins were in no small part due to his many goals. Bill was also the prime organizer for a number of annual televised charity matches for the team in aid of children’s special needs facilities.

Bill will be sadly missed by all and our thoughts are with his loving partner, Joyce, and his family at this time of tragic loss.

A celebration of life service will be held in Oakville, Ontario on Monday, August 25th.

BISSONNETTE, Carmen Judith (Mizzi) Bissonnette Obituary | Print |

BISSONNETTE, Carmen Judith (Mizzi) -

Bissonnette_CarmenPassed peacefully, with family at her side, at her home in Rockwood, Ontario on Saturday, August 16, 2014.

Carmen was born Feb 28, 1945 in Qormi, Malta. The first of five children born to Paul and Josephine Mizzi.

She had a thirst for knowledge and an open mind, following scientific advancements as well as supporting the arts. Carmen felt most comfortable in the company of her family and friends.

She found pleasure in her beloved pets, reading, solving cryptic crosswords, playing scrabble with her husband, gardening, and planning her next world adventure.

Carmen and the love of her life Victor loved to travel together. Their journeys included trips to China, Tibet, Russia, India, Nepal, The Galapagos, and numerous other destinations. Carmen shared her love of adventure with her whole family, embarking on a memorable backpacking tour of Europe, with Victor and their then teenaged children.

Seeing her children grow up and have escapades of their own has brought much shared joy, and some tears, to Carmen’s life. She overflowed with pride in her grandchildren, having seen them through many life experiences, and had hoped to see them grow into adults. She inspired her family to reach their full potential, and taught them that nothing was unattainable. By the strength of her will and the lessons she’s taught her family, Carmen’s love and guidance will endure.

Her compassion, diverse experiences, and giving nature made her a joy to everyone who knew her and a cherished presence for those whom she shared her life with. Even as a young mother, she found the time and energy to volunteer for the CNIB, Bloorview Children's Hospital and at a local Distress Centre hot-line. She was very active in her community, volunteering her time and ideas to make the Hillsview Active Living Centre a more welcoming place.

In the final year of her life, Carmen participated in a clinical trial at Princess Margaret Hospital, Toronto. To that end, she has chosen to give her body to the hospital as her final contribution to the advancement of cancer research, and improving the lives of other cancer patients and their families.

Beloved wife of Victor, adored mother of Mary-Rose & John, Robert, Janet & Jason and treasured grandmother of Katie, Jaquelin and Gabriel. Cherished by her siblings Joseph & Patricia, Georgina & Sam, Joan & Ron, Frank & Martina, and her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Yvette & Al. Fondly remembered by her nieces & nephews; Coriann & Trevor, Ian & Amanda, Steve & Lori, Anne & Cliff, Angela & Danny, Kathy & Mike, Dean, and Sofie, as well as grand nieces and nephews Kieran, Malia & Zaidyn, Lyle, Samantha, Mary, and Mia & Anna.

The family would like to extend special thanks to close family friend Deb for her love and support and Jeanette, from Wellington CCAC, for her outstanding care and compassion.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a “Celebration of Carmen’s Life” on Wednesday August 20th from 5 to 9 pm that will be held at J. SCOTT EARLY FUNERAL HOME, 21 James Street, Milton, ON. 905-878-2669.
