SHORT, Heather 'Denise' (Walker) Short Obituary | Print |

SHORT, Heather 'Denise' (nee Walker) -

Short_Denise(1960 - 2014) - A shining light has been extinguished. It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved “Nee Nee” on August 30, 2014.

Denise Short was an inspiration to us all as she reached so many goals throughout her life and faced her illness with strength, determination and dignity.

Born on June 15, 1960, Denise made so many friends and achieved countless milestones in her short 54 years. Her years of sports included completing an Iron Man (at age 47), The Boston Marathon, The Cabot Trail Relay, numerous triathlons and hundreds of local charity and fun runs.

She loved her Holimont family in Ellicottville, NY, where she spent every winter skiing. From her early childhood Denise was an avid golfer. Cycling became a passion that she enjoyed with so many dear friends. One of her greatest triumphs was completing The Ride to Conquer Cancer while undergoing cancer treatments.

Denise had a passion for travelling and throughout her illness managed to travel extensively. Her trips to France, England, Ireland, Wales, Costa Rica, Anguilla and Florida were part of the strength that kept her going.
Denise was adored and loved by her two sons, Alex and Connor and their father Tom. She leaves behind her loving father Keith Walker and was predeceased by her mother Diana. Both her sister Keltie (Bruce) Law and brother Kevin (Denise) Walker will miss Nee Nee forever.

Denise has 9 nieces and nephews, Brianne and Adam Law, Danielle, Elyse and Keith Walker, Keeley and Kate Turbitt and Aidan Kneeshaw and Avalon Short who admired and loved their aunt, as well many cousins and in-laws who will miss the warmth of her smile. Denise is also survived by her father-in-law, Hugh Short and predeceased by her mother-in-law, Mona.

Denise also has an abundance of incredible friends who have supported her throughout her entire life but especially in her recent fight with cancer. Their friendship, love and support have helped tremendously to ease the burden of her illness.

We are eternally grateful to the “dream team” of Julie and Jenn from Calacare and all of the incredible health care workers, doctors and nurses, especially Dr. Lynn Benjamin, Dr. Carol Cooper and Dr. Sudha Rajagopal.

Our lives are fuller and richer for having had Denise in it, and now heaven has one more angel.

Arrangements out of Burlington. Please join us in a celebration of Denise’s life on Friday, September 5th at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster, Ontario at 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, if you wish, please consider a donation to Kidsport Canada (www.kidsportcanada.ca) or your favourite charity.

FORREST, Daisy Forrest, Obituary | Print |

FORREST, Daisy -

It is with great sadness that the family of Daisy Forrest announces her passing at St. Joseph's Hospital, Hamilton on Thursday, August 28, 2014, at the age of 89.

Daisy was predeceased by Alan, her beloved husband of 50 years (1997) and her dear son David (2013).

She leaves behind her daughters Lynne (Bruce) and Louise (Steve); grandchildren Jenn, Chris, Melissa (fiancée Jeremy), Oliver, Sarah and great-grandson Ayden.

Daisy was a woman who was somewhat ahead of her time: independent, inquisitive and broadminded. She was passionate about music and the arts, and relished a stimulating, philosophical discussion. She loved the company of her family and friends, but was equally content in her solitude with a good mystery novel.

Her generous nature and tolerance for others was a lifelong example to all who knew her. She would humbly say that her greatest accomplishment and fulfillment was as a mother and grandmother.

Friends are invited to gather on Thursday, September 4, 2014 to visit with the family, after which there will be a service in Ancaster. Please advise the family if you would like a moment during the service to share your memories of Daisy. A reception will follow the service at a separate location.

For those wishing to honour mom's memory, we know she would be thrilled to have donations made to the following groups: Ancaster Senior Achievement Centre, Alberton; "City Kidz", Hamilton and "Earthroots Ontario", in lieu of flowers.

Angelo’s entire journey in hospital, although painful and unfair, through the loving care of our new extended family CTU central and north and most of all Dr. A. Boyle and the entire palliative care team, we were able to find joy at the worst time of our lives.

Angelo was the measure of men for all his children. He was compassionate and a role model of integrity and good humour for all who knew him. He shared his love for learning, for people of all walks, for children and animals and for carnival midways with all his little children.

Angelo did not go quietly into that good night; he raged against the dying of the light… he never did like to be told what to do.

Irene was born in 1949, and in 1951 Al left Germany to pave the way for his family’s future in Canada, followed in 1952 by Eleonore and Irene. The family moved into their brand new house on Rifle Range Road in West Hamilton in 1955. Eleonore and family welcomed the birth of daughter Audrey in 1958.

During the early years, Eleonore tended to her spectacular garden, cooked delicious German style meals and tortes for her circle of German and Canadian friends and neighbours, and crocheted hats at home for Heaslip Knitwear.

In retirement, Eleonore and Al warmly hosted their daughters and families, spent more time at the cottage on Mill Lake, and travelled to exotic places in South America, Africa, Europe and Asia, not to mention visits to relatives in Germany.

After Al’s passing, Eleonore lived alone, with help from her family and kind neighbours on Rifle Range Road, until 2013, when it became necessary for her to move to Idlewyld Manor.

The family wish to thank Mom’s neighbours. We also thank Wendy, Soraya, Mollie and Patricia, as well as the Idlewyld staff for all their wonderful care, and last, but not least, Doctor Garth Noad, Eleonore’s long-time family physician.
