WYLES, Elaine Wyles - Obituary | Print |

WYLES, Elaine -

Wyles_ElainePeacefully on Thursday, March 5, 2015, at the General & Marine Hospital, Collingwood in her 86th year.

Elaine was predeceased by her parents Stanley Cranston (Sept. 30, 1985) and Mary (Kidd) Cranston (Nov. 1, 1981). Left to mourn her loss are her cousins and many dear friends.

Elaine had a long and happy teaching career, working for seven different school boards: Barrie, Windsor, Toronto Lakeshore, East Toronto, North York, York County and Richmond Hill. Her banker husband was transferred often, hence the many moves during her 32 years of teaching.

Elaine also enjoyed being an asset to several associations: Women Teacher's Federation, Superannuated Teachers, United Church Women (60 years) and Collingwood Probus Club, etc.. She retired from teaching in 1983.

Having a very active mind, Elaine took courses in music, art, geography, social issues, world news and modern psychology. Her grade one teacher asked each child what he/she wanted to do when grown up. Elaine said "I'm going to teach school like my Mom, wear pretty clothes and coloured shoes and drive a car." It all came true!

Funeral Service will be held at Centennial United Church, 234 William Street, Stayner on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 11 o’clock. Spring interment in Stayner.

If desired, remembrances to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Collingwood General & Marine Hospital Foundation or Charity of your choice would be appreciated by Elaine’s family.

BRADBURY, Catherine Bradbury - Obituary | Print |

BRADBURY, Catherine -

1923 - 2015

Cassie Bradbury died on the morning of Wednesday, March 4, 2015 after a peaceful week in palliative care at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto.

She was 91.

Her five children were by her side each day and shared many meaningful moments with her: Laura (Don Chiasson), Tim (Nancy Keenan), David, Cathrin (John Barber) and Ann (Damion Dooley). Many of her nine grandchildren were also with her and sent their love: Brennan Lang; Kristen Bradbury; Connor, Sam and Noah Bradbury; Kelly and Mary Barber; and Keogh and Claire Dooley. She was also visited by her loving nieces and nephews. Her constant companion was her husband of 71 years, Bill Bradbury, 93, who held her hand and sang love songs to her every day. Cassie was born to James Kelly and Catherine Osbaldeston in St. Catharines, Ontario on September 12, 1923, the youngest of three daughters. She adored her older sisters, Mary and Helen, who predeceased her (Helen just this winter, at 96).

Bill's last words to Cassie on Wednesday were, "I can't pray for her to go to heaven because she's already there. See you soon." Cassie's last words to us were, "Thank you." Her sweetness lingers with us.

Our sincere thanks go to the caregivers at the Toronto General Hospital, who shepherded us to the remarkable palliative team at St. Mike's. We think of them all with great fondness.

A visitation and prayer service will be held at St. Basil's Church, 50 St. Joseph Street, Toronto at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, March 9th.

BARNES, Craig Barnes - Obituary | Print |

BARNES, Craig -

Barnes_Craig(January 29, 1948 - March 3, 2015)

A true gentleman who has forever left footprints on our hearts.

Craig was a leader, a mentor, a teacher, a friend, a brother, an uncle, a grandfather, a father, a husband. Craig's joie de vivre was always evident in his broad smile, his quick wit, and spritely step. He was one to whistle while doing chores, sing with gusto on crisp nights, and two-step around the kitchen while preparing dinner.

Craig enjoyed a commendable career as an educator with the Provincial Schools for the Deaf. His 35 years of service was recognized by the Premier of Ontario. "The skill, ability and expertise you bring to your work have earned you the respect and admiration of many."

Craig loved surrounding himself with family, and how fortunate for us that he was part of our life. He was so proud of the kids he raised, of their success and achievement - in their home life and careers.

Craig is loved by his grandboys Jacob, Alden, Eli, Jack and Noah; beloved Poppa of Tim and Lisa, Angela and Steve, and Adam and A-Young; adored by Sandy.

Please join us for a celebration of Craig's life on Saturday, March 7th at 1:00 p.m. at the Greek Hall (70 Harder Dr., Belleville). A reception will follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Crohn's and Colitis Society, The Heart and Stroke Foundation, and Sir James Whitney School for the Deaf.

In celebration of Craig's love of family, please do something together that has special meaning for you.

Pace e Bene.
