WALDEN, Betty Christina (SMITH) Walden - Obituary | Print |

WALDEN, Betty Christina (nee SMITH) -

January 19, 1933 - March 19, 2015

Peacefully, on her own terms and in her own bed, with her nephew Kerry by her side, Betty left us to join her beloved husband, Donald, on one last great adventure.

Born in Exeter, England and predeceased by her brother Ted, her English family will miss her with heavy hearts. Lovingly remembered by her sister-in-law Eileen, nephews Geoff and Clive (Pierina) and grandnieces Lara and Jess.

Her Canadian family will miss her as well; holidays and birthday celebrations just won't be the same without Aunt Betty! Sisters-in-law Grace (Norm) and Winnie (Walter) and all those nieces and nephews: Bob (Shelley), Patti (Allan), Karen (Mick), Kevin (Sharon), Kerry (Christine) and Keith (Antonietta) and about a million grandnieces and nephews.

Betty loved to travel but her great love was Donald and the times they spent travelling the world together.

While they were at home they spent almost all their spare time up at the Walden cottage on Grape Island in Orillia, listening to loons, watching the trilliums and daffodils grow and waving to everybody sailing past. Betty will be missed by her lifelong friend, Claudia Hungerson, her friends at Tapestry and countless others in all places travelled, near and far.

The family would like to thank longtime family friend Cathy Wallbank and her staff at Tapestry for allowing Betty to come home one last time and for their sincere and compassionate care during Betty's last days.

It was Betty's wish to be cremated without fanfare and she will be interred privately, beside Donald, in late spring, once the daffodils have had their day.

A celebration of Betty's life will be held at Tapestry in the near future.

You will be expected to drink lots of wine and laugh till it hurts, all while sharing your fondest memories of Betty with those who knew and loved her.

BONHAM, Glen Bonham - Obituary | Print |

BONHAM, Glen -

Bonham_Glen(June 10, 1936 - March 18, 2015)

Glen Bonham was a true Renaissance man - an engineer, a teacher, a boat builder, a radio personality, a curler and an avid cottager who left the world a better place simply because he threw so much of himself into it.

Glen died Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at his beloved home on Gull Lake in Haliburton after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 78.

Glen is survived by his wife of 22 years, Mickey, his son Stephen (Brenda Petersen), daughter Cynthia (Mike Talbot), step-daughter Bridget Allin and step-son Jesse Allin (Sarah.) He is missed by grandchildren Thomas and Jonathan, his brother Dave (Cathy), step-sister Joan Tooke (Gerry, deceased) and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Shirley Lake (Doug) and step-brother John Saunders (Lucy.)

Glen loved family and the lake, especially sitting on the dock at sunset with a glass of Scotch. He grew up in the Village of Swansea. His father James was the last reeve before the village was annexed by the City of Toronto in 1967. Glen graduated from Humberside Collegiate and got his mechanical engineering degree from the University of Toronto in 1959.

After his first job in sales for IBM, Glen became a teacher in Toronto and helped create the original curricula for introducing computer science programs in the classroom. He would go on to work for the Ministry of Education from 1966 to 1977, before giving in to his dream of running his own boat-building business. Canadian Power and Sail survived just three years, thanks to a nervous bank manager who called the loan as the country headed into a recession. Still, the company produced more than 500 sailboats and powerboats, some of which are running today.

The failure of the boat business took its toll on his first marriage and saw him return to education, as a math teacher at Streetsville Secondary School, where he would meet the love of his life, Mickey, a guidance counsellor. Upon his retirement in 1999, he and Mickey made Haliburton their permanent home, which gave Glen time to indulge his love of carpentry and cottage-country life. He joined Haliburton's mental health committee, the Minden Rotary Club and the Minden Curling Club, among others.

He even manned the microphone for local radio station Canoe FM. But of all his accomplishments, one of his happiest was placing the engineering ring on the pinky fingers of three graduating relatives of whom he was fiercely proud - his son Stephen, his step-son Jesse and his nephew, Graeme Kelly.

Our sincere thanks go to nurse practitioners Vanessa Meraw and Sue Robinson, Dr. Tina Stephenson and paramed nurses Amanda Rowden and Susan Foster.

Visitation will be held at the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home, 127 Bobcaygeon Rd., Minden, on Friday, April 10th from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 11th from 12 noon until a 1 p.m. service in the chapel to celebrate Glen's life.
