We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

Sponsors are welcome to participate and support NiagaraObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please contact us !

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.

We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

Wilton Kay SimichWILTON, Kay Simich - It is with sad hearts we announce the death of Kay Simich Wilton, on Sunday, June 10, 2018. Kay was in her 95th year. Surrounded by her family, she passed peacefully after a long battle with Dementia.

Kay was predeceased by husbands William (Bogdan) Simich (1957) and Len Wilton (2011), and son William (Billy) Simich (2017).

Her family was the light of her life. Loving and dearly loved mother of Barbara Craig (Peter) of St. Catharines, and Rob Simich (Kim) of Apsley.

Cherished nanny to Kerri McIntosh (Steve), Jodi Ditillio (Tony) and Katy Sroka (Paul) all of St. Catharines, Jennifer Goddard (Derek) of Oshawa, Matt Simich (Jocelyn) of Bowmanville. Kay leaves behind 7 great grandchildren.

Born in Yugoslavia, Kay and her parents immigrated to Canada in 1927, first settling in Noranda, Quebec, then moving to Welland and Niagara Falls and finally to St. Catharines. Following the death of her first husband in 1957, Kay, then a single mother of 3, continued to operate the family business, the New Murray Hotel in downtown St. Catharines, until its sale in 1972. She then worked at Eatons, Pen Centre location until retirement.

We are eternally grateful to all the staff of Tabor Manor who cared for her in her last days with such dignity and compassion. 

As per Kay’s wishes the family will hold a private graveside service. Arrangements entrusted with George Darte funeral chapel, St. Catharines. In lieu of flowers, for those who wish to, donations may be made to Tabor Manor.
