DAGG, James Gordon 'Gord' Dagg Obituary | Print |

DAGG, James Gordon 'Gord' -

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing in Kelowna BC at the age of 83 on September 24, 2014 of the man known as ‘Gord’ to his friends, ‘Dad’ to his children, and ‘Pakka’, ‘Papa’, or ‘Zaida’ to his grandchildren.

Gord was born and raised in Toronto, where he went to Hillcrest Community School for kindergarten (the same school as two of his grandchildren). He attended Lawrence Park Collegiate for high school where he met Martha at stamp club, his future wife of sixty years.

Gord always reveled in the pursuit of knowledge, attaining numerous degrees and distinctions, including a BComm and MA in Education from the University of Toronto, a certificate in Management Studies from the University of Oxford, and status as a certified Chartered Accountant and registered Industrial and Cost Accountant. He worked at the accounting firm McDonald Currie as well as the Federal Development Bank, before he found his long-term place in education at Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough, ON at its founding in 1967 until his retirement in 1989. In addition to teaching, he also served as Chairman of the Business Division.

Gord was most fond of travel and family and was able to combine the two on multiple occasions.  Best described as a laid-back lover of the literary classics, the ocean and black currant jam, Gord exuded profound warmth, kindness and sincerity to the many people whom his life touched. He was a man of true integrity, who held his principles above all else.

He will be remembered affectionately by his dear wife Martha, their five children Geoff (Lynne Werker), Norm (Jennifer), Paul (Carol Ward), Alexandra, and Gillian (Jim Foster), and their thirteen grandchildren Aaron, Adrienne, Andre, Alex, Eric, Andrew, Olivia, Cameron, Leah, Lewie, Nikki, Allyson, and Julia. We will all miss his unwaveringly dignified presence greatly.

A special note of thanks to the caring staff of the Interior Health Palliative Care team.

Hiscock_Garland(August 29, 1923 - September 22, 2014)

Garland Leslie Barnes Hiscock, age 91 years, passed away peacefully on September 22, 2014.

He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by Vera, his wife of 66 years. Much loved father / father-in-law to daughter Elizabeth and son-in-law Robin, and son Leslie and daughter-in-law Victoria. He was cherished by his grandchildren Kaity, and Stephanie and Joshuah.

Garland grew up in Newfoundland. When WW2 arrived, he exaggerated his age and enlisted to serve overseas. Discharged as a young man, Garland settled in Toronto where he met his wife and they created a loving home to raise a daughter and son.

Garland was employed by Loblaws Supermarkets Limited for more than 35 years before retiring to the south shore of Rice Lake. He was a personable man with many friends who enjoyed his humour and mischievous nature. Garland loved the outdoors; in the summer, he fished and camped and in the winter, he skated. Hockey was his passion for many years and he was an enthusiastic armchair coach.

He was an active member of Tango Sierra and TransCanada radio clubs and had lively conversations over the airwaves about every topic imaginable.

In recent years, Garland suffered from severe dementia leaving his family to safeguard their memories of a loving husband, awesome Dad and fun-loving grandpa. We promise not to forget.

Cremation.  Private family service to take place at a later date, with internment in Newfoundland.

Please honour Garland’s memory by performing an act of kindness that will brighten someone’s day.

COOK, Phyllis Helen (née Wood) -

Cook_PhyllisEntered into rest in Peterborough on Sunday, September 21st, 2014. She had recently moved to Royals Gardens in Peterborough, but was a long-time resident of Lindsay. Phyllis was in her 89th year.

She is predeceased by her parents George and E. Maud Wood of Fenelon Falls, her brother Meredith Wood (Molly), her infant sister Rosalyne and her eldest daughter Sharon Woolsey.

Phyllis was the beloved wife for more than 65 years of Thomas Cook and the loving mother of Sharon Woolsey (Gord), Kathy Pakenham (Bob), Susan Hamer (David) and Leo Cook (Leslie Gifford-Cook).

She was the proud grandmother of Taryn and Chris Woolsey, Susie Pakenham (Matt MacKinnon), Carrie Hamer-Jonkhout (Jason Jonkhout) and Laura Hamer. She was also the delighted great-grandmother of David MacKinnon.

Phyllis succumbed to a courageous battle with cancer over the past year and with dignity, acceptance and good humour gave her family and friends the great gift of a wonderful last year.

Phyllis was an avid and talented gardener with interest and involvement in the Lindsay Horticultural Society and the Lindsay Lilac Garden and Festival. She was drawn to history and genealogy and had been active in LACAC. She was a long-term employee of the Town of Lindsay. She was a multi-talented crafter and had wide interest in politics, world affairs and sports.

Her family was her greatest passion and we would like to thank those who took wonderful care of her during her illness. This includes the exemplary staff of Royals Gardens who accommodated beyond measure, the professional and caring support of the Palliative Care Team at PRHC during her last few days and the gentle care, guidance and intervention of her Doctors Vorster (Lindsay) and Ragaz (Peterborough) and their staffs for kindness and help.

She was a woman with a keen mind and opinion and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Funeral Service will be held in Lindsay on Friday, September 26th.

Memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
