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.

SCOTT, Harry Stuart Scott - Obituary | Print |

SCOTT, Harry Stuart -

(May 12, 1920 - July 13, 2014)

The spark of intelligence and humour shone through to the end. Harry Stuart Scott, our beloved Dad and grandfather Stu, passed away surrounded by love and a poignant sense that an era was drawing to a close.

The loss of his wife, Helen Worthington Scott, in 2011 highlighted the role she played as an anchor in Stuart’s life.

His children Martha (Richard Whatley), Deborah (Franz Klingender), and Richard (Renée Scott) find comfort in the knowledge that Stuart lived a long and adventurous life, experiencing joy in home and family in his later years. Growing up, Stu’s adoring grandchildren, Ben, Ian, Graeme, Margot, and Julia, were captivated by his stories of exploration and discovery, and inspired by his inquiring mind.

Raised in Timmins, Ontario, Stu followed in his father’s footsteps and earned a Masters degree in geology. He and Helen first met while playing violin in the University of Toronto orchestra.

Donations in memory of Stu may be made to the Lakefield Animal Welfare Shelter or the Kawartha Heritage Conservancy.

A celebration of Stu’s remarkable life will be held at a later date for family and friends.
