In the highest spirit of thanksgiving for having been influenced by a man so rare, we are filled with sorrow to announce the death of Timothy Crough Moloney on July 29th, 2014.
The dearly adored husband of Dorothy Crough for more than 57 years, they are reunited only ten days following Dorothy's death.
Intensely proud of his children, Father Bill Moloney, Janet and Greg Shillinglaw, Randy and Lori Moloney, Colleen and Jim Shipley, Clair and Nancy Moloney and Tim and Theresa Moloney, he leaves them with the lessons to forge forth. Alongside Dorothy, Tim raised his children to know that each new day brings its own work, one's talents must be fostered and God made the back to bear the burden.
The cherished, entertaining Grandfather of Jimmy, Ali, Jenna, Ben, Kirk, Molly, Janine, Carlie, Shauna, Alex, Shannon and Timmy, he has left them all with the gift of laughter and the knowledge that generosity of spirit should know no limit.
Born on February 25th, 1928, Tim was the fifth child of Peter and Sarah Moloney. His formative years were fully lived on the family farm with his siblings Alice Kinlin (Jim), Mick Moloney (Kay), Homer Moloney (Lorraine), Mary O'Donnell (Pat) and Patricia Moloney, known to all who hold her most dear as Beck.
Upon Tim's marriage to Dorothy, he was warmly welcomed into the Crough family by Dorothy's mother, Kathleen Crough (Ambrose d, 1950) and her siblings Norma and Joe Crossman, Betty and Eddie Doyle, Alma Crough, Eleanor and Bobby Young, Billy and Carol Crough, Geraldine and Bob Butterfield and Paul and Judy Crough.
Beyond his family, Tim was first and foremost a farmer, with a deep connection to the land and the cycle of the seasons. Tim lived his entire life on the 100 acre farm settled by his parents in 1919. He was a noble steward of the land entrusted to his care and attached the highest value to his neighbours. Tim has cast a shadow across the land of his home that will never be built upon, harrowed over or ploughed under.
For many years, Tim worked as the business agent for The Labourers Union, Local 597, employing the union motto "Live with Honour, Justice and Strength" as a template for his own life. A master story teller with a laugh that called all spirits to soar, Tim was a life giving force, the life of the party and a lifeline for so many. His firm handshake was a tangible expression of the joy he took in knowing others and his unique ability to engage.
A faith filled member of Immaculate Conception Parish, Tim was devoted to the church his parents helped to raise.
Tim's funeral mass will be celebrated on Saturday, August 2nd at 10:30 a.m. at Immaculate Conception Church, 386 Rogers Street, Peterborough. Burial will take place in Douro.
Ever hopeful that Tim's lifelong church will endure the tests of time, donations to The Immaculate Conception Renovation Fund will be graciously accepted.
As we collectively shoulder the loss of the greatest man we have ever known, we hear him say, "Head up, tail out and stay the course!"
Peacefully, at home, on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 - much too soon at the age of 87.
Loving and devoted husband of Mary (nee Woodworth) for 61 splendid years. Loving and wonderful father of Nancy and David. No one could hope to meet a more remarkable and honourable man, let alone have the good fortune to be a part of his family.
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Gordon pursued a career in electrical engineering, graduating from Dalhousie University and the Nova Scotia Technical College in 1953. Moving to Ontario shortly after graduating, he was soon employed at General Electric in Peterborough where he remained for 35 years as a Control Systems Design Engineer.
Gord had many passions in life, always eager to learn and experience new things. In the early years, camping out in our old canvass tent was a favourite summer pasttime. The family, under Gord’s direction, built a cottage as their Centennial project on land with no road or electricity! It was there on the lake where his love of sailing blossomed. He enjoyed his Amateur Radio hobby where his proficiency led him to become Net Manager for Eastern Canada.
He volunteered his time and expertise to the Festival of Lights. Later in life, he discovered Seniors' Badminton which he enjoyed immensely until his Doctor diagnosed a torn rotator cuff injury and advised Gord, who was in his 70s at the time, to perhaps take up a less rigourous sport.
Gord rediscovered his joy of skating and he would the first to arrive at the Senior Skate with his mp3 of hand picked skating music. We know his fellow skaters will miss him enormously.
A private celebration of Gord’s life will be held at a later date. Arrangements out of Peterborough.
In memory of Gord, donations to the Victorian Order of Nurses would be greatly appreciated by the family.
Thank you to the staff at Community Care (especially Darlene) and to the V.O.N. (especially Debbie, Jackie and Tracy) and Elise Hall (Bayshore) for all their caring and compassion.

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

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.
