LAVERY, Mary Jean (Forster) Lavery Obituary | Print |

LAVERY, Mary Jean (Forster) -      "Express Condolences"

Lavery_MaryAfter a courageous battle with cancer, Mary passed away on Sunday, July 27, 2014 at Peterborough Regional Health Centre.

Mary and Douglas (husband) just celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary in May along with their children daughter Susan Mary Jean (Matthews) and her husband Richard Matthews of Peterborough, and son Richard Douglas and his wife Janeva Healey of Toronto and grandchildren Connor and Foster Matthews and Keira Lavery.

Mary is also the mother of David Irwin, currently living in Singapore and the sister to Clark Irwin Forster of Toronto.

Mary was an award-winning graduate of Wellesley School of Nursing, Toronto. She worked as a nurse at the Montreal Neurological Institute where she received a post graduate diploma in Neurological nursing. She had the great privilege to work under Dr. Wilder Penfield, one of the world's greatest Neurosurgeons.

In 1967 Mary moved to Peterborough and became active in the schooling of her three children and was an energetic member of the Queen Mary School Association for 13 years where she assisted in fund raising, regular volunteer work in the primary division and as a library helper. She simultaneously served as President of the Board of Directors of Family Counselling Service.

In the 1980's she initiated and was chairperson of the P.C.V.S Parents' Association, setting up many volunteer activities. She was active in two successful campaigns to "Save P.C.V.S.", the second time she was co-chairperson. For these many involvements in education, she received the Award of Merit as Educator of the year in 1985.

She then decided to take one further step into the education world by running as a Trustee for the Peterborough Board of Education. She was elected and served for two terms as a trustee from 1985 until 1991.
Mary was active in many other organizations in Peterborough. She was an original member of the Board of Learning and Leisure, was a director of Peterborough Learning Disabilities Association, served for many years on organizing committees of the Festival of Trees, was a member of the Peterborough Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee that protects the city's heritage architecture and recently was on the organizing committee for Peterborough's Doors Open Day.

With her love of history she became involved with the Peterborough Historical Society and was President for 3 years during which she rewrote the by-laws to bring them into the 21st century. She then became the Chairperson of the Hutchison House living museum. She was involved with the Peterborough Centennial Museum and archives in the sorting, classifying and identifying glass plates and photographs of the Balsillie Collection of Roy Studio Images, especially those concerning Stoney Lake for which she became quite an authority.

Her research skills came to the forefront as she became involved in the writing of two historical books. Mary was a chief researcher for the book "Stoney Lake – Gem of the Kawarthas" and was co-author of the book "Up the Burleigh Road". For her journalistic endeavours she received the Award of Merit from the Ontario Heritage Trust. She also received the Peterborough Betterment Award from the City of Peterborough in recognition of her contribution to the community in 2007 and again in 2009.

Her artistic talents were many as she was a hand weaver, spinner, rug hooker, embroiderer and an instructor in silk ribbon embroidery. Mary combined these skills with further education at Sir Sandford Fleming College to become a Travel Consultant and a part time Professor in Travel at Fleming College she combined her artistic skills together to design, market and conduct tours specializing in hand weaving and other crafts. Over a period of ten years she guided tours to England, Ireland, and Scotland, many countries in Europe, Scandinavia and New Zealand.

She enjoyed vocal music and was an original member of the Jubilaire Women's Chorus and an original member of the smaller Jubilation Chorus. She was also a member of Trinity United Church handbell choir. Mary was Chairperson of the Chancel Renewal Committee of Trinity United Church from 2000 to 2002. She was dining room hostess to many of the church fund raising functions and also served on many other committees at Trinity.
Mary had a great love of lakes, oceans and sand. She relished her time at the cottage on Stoney Lake, surrounded by her family and friends and the memories they made there. Mary loved to stand with her feet in the sand on the waters edge at a beach and watch the diamonds sparkle on the lake at the end of each day.

There will be a memorial service at 2:00pm Thursday, August 14th at Trinity United Church, 360 Reid Street, Peterborough with a reception and visitation at 3:30 pm. Please join the family for the service, reception or both.

MOLONEY, Dorothy Anne Moloney Obituary | Print |

MOLONEY, Dorothy Anne -

Moloney_DorothyIn joyful thanksgiving of a life fully lived, we are nonetheless saddened to announce the death of Dorothy Moloney on July 19th, 2014 at Fairhaven, Peterborough.

For more than 57 years, “Dot” has been the lovingly cherished wife of Timothy Moloney, with whom she raised a family and created a home where all were welcome.

Devoted mother of Father Bill Moloney, Janet and Greg Shillinglaw, Randy and Lori Moloney, Colleen and Jim Shipley, Clair and Nancy Moloney and Tim and Theresa Moloney, Dorothy tirelessly led by example throughout all the stages of their lives.

The adoring grandmother of Jimmy, Ali, Jenna, Ben, Kirk, Molly, Janine, Carlie, Shauna, Alex, Shannon and Timmy, Dorothy has left indelible marks on each of their lives teaching them to work hard, have faith and be ever grateful for the gifts bestowed upon them.

Born on January 9th, 1932, Dorothy was the second child of Ambrose and Kathleen Crough. Her formative years played out against the backdrop of Crough's General Store in Ennismore with her seven siblings, Norma Crossman (Joe), Betty Doyle (Eddie), Alma Crough, Eleanor Young (Bobby), Billy Crough (Carol), Geraldine Butterfield (Bob) and Paul Crough (Judy).

Dorothy's marriage to Tim brought her into the fold of his birth family where she was embraced by Tim's parents, Peter and Sarah Moloney and his siblings, Alice and Jim Kinlin, Mick and Kay Moloney, Homer and Lorraine Moloney, Mary and Pat O'Donnell and Patricia Moloney, affectionately known as Beck.

As a graduate of Peterborough Business College, Dorothy worked for The Ackerman Company prior to her married life. Once the children were all in school, Dorothy became the valued secretary of her brother-in-law, Robert Young, of Robert Young Construction, affording her the blessing of renewing her ties to Ennismore and the people she held so dear.

Dorothy's trademark was humility and her “call” was “service to others.” Dorothy answered her call publicly as a volunteer at Marycrest Home For The Aged and in active membership of several church and community groups. Her call was answered privately by responding in prayer when needs were high.

Dorothy's funeral mass will be celebrated on Thursday, July 24th at 10:30 am at Immaculate Conception Church, 386 Rogers Street, Peterborough. Burial will take place in Douro.

In acknowledgement of the unparalleled care given to Dorothy during the final 15 months of her life, donations to The Fairhaven Foundation will be humbly received.

From The Cross in Ennismore to The Farm in Douro, Dorothy lived her life as a beacon of light and shouldered all crosses with grace.
