Wanda Jeffress, funeral home co-owner and civic leader, dies at 60 - YourGV.com

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Ebenezer Christian Methodist Episcopal Church.A 1981 Averett College graduate, Jeffress’ employment career began as a production supervisor with the former Burlington Industries. She received her MBA degree from Averett College (University) in 1992 and later graduated from the School of Bank Management at the University of Virginia in 1994 while working as a mortgage lending specialist with the former Central Fidelity Bank (Wells Fargo).Her passion for real estate and home ownership later led her to pursue her real estate and broker licenses.Sharon Wilborn, who worked with Jeffress for about two years at Realty Resource, said, “She was just a great person, and the word that comes to my mind is her professionalism and grace with everything she did, and she was so passionate.“She always was willing to help people, and she just had a good presence about serving and helping people. She was a community-oriented person, and what she contributed to this community, we will see it in the years to come.”Jeffress also will be missed in her association with the Southern Piedmont Land and Lake Association of Realtors, according to Wilborn.“She was voted by her peers as 2016 Realtor of the Year,” added Wilborn.Jeffress’ survivors include husband Stanley; daughter Zena; mother Mary Davis Bostick; siblings Yvonne, Joanne (Clyde), Jeanette, Juanita (Robert), Jacqueline, Gail, Johnny, Mary Lee and Cherri; aunts Mildred Bostick and Dorothy Fuller; and sister-in-law Diane Pulliam.She was preceded in death by her father, John R. Bostick Sr., and sister Cheryl B. Bailey.A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Grace Baptist Church in Virgilina.Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Teenager shot dead by police wasn't armed, say family, neighbour - TheSpec.com

Thursday, April 12, 2018

MacDougall for about 11 months, said she started receiving texts from him that morning about anonymous threats."And he was super paranoid. He hadn't been sleeping," the 15-year-old Burlington resident said Thursday.The SIU told reporters paramedics took MacDougall to St. Josephs. Hamilton EMS clarified Friday that they had taken him to Hamilton General. Tuesday's fatal police shooting was the sixth in Hamilton in the past decade.It has sparked sadness and outrage in the tight-knit townhouse complex. Family friend Shannon Windsor, Chris's sister, has started an online campaign to raise funds for the unexpected funeral.By around 4:30 p.m. Friday, the GoFundMe effort called "Rundraiser for Quinn" had reached $4,125 of its $10,000 goal. Her young children were playing hockey with their cousins when police shot MacDougall."I was devastated. I couldn't believe that they would expose my children to that."Though grieving, MacDougall's parents, stepfather and two sisters thank the community for all support they've received following MacDougall's death, Trinh said.He said he doesn't want his nephew remembered as a guy who was running around crazed with a knife. He says he was close to him and tried to instil values from his native Vietnam, from where his family arrived as refugees in the 1980s. "I just want everyone to remember that Quinn MacDougall was a good person, and what happened was tragic and ... it's just so confusing for us."MacDougall was extremely intelligent, talking about news and politics at his young age, Trinh said. His nephew liked fishing and played sports. He even aspired to be a police officer."We're not anti-cop. We're like pro-cop people."MacDougall leaves behind many relatives.A private funeral is planned for Sunday with a second for the public tentatively planned for sometime next week, Trinh said. tmoro@thespec.com905-526-3264 @TeviahMorotmoro@thespec.com905-526-3264 @TeviahMoroLet's block ads!

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
