Clearwater Beach, Florida. Here is where Mom was at her best, her multitude of friends, Jack, Boris and Paula, Susanne, Rodney to name a few and her Friday evening dinners at the Beachcomber, but most of all just sitting or walking on the beach enjoying the sunshine and chatting with people.
Proud mother of Phyllis (John) and Gus. Grandmother to Robert (Sara) and Jennifer. Great grandmother to Maggie, Sloane and James. Stepmother to Linda Dom. Sister-in-law Mary and her extended family. We will miss you dearly, but your spirit and name will always be evident in conversations, by the splashing of the waves against the shore, the sand beneath our feet or the flight of a seagull above.
Cremation has taken place.

Also On HuffPost:
Canadians got to know him on "This Hour Has 22 Minutes," but Mercer became a household name when he got his own show. His iconic rants have made him a sort of unofficial conscience for Canada, while his disarming and silly interviews have humanized some of Canada's most important people.
What started as a segment for "SCTV" quickly became a pop culture phenomenon. Bob and Doug McKenzie's "Great White North" inspired albums, movies and even a cartoon.
Created by Jim Henson and produced by Canadians in the early 1980s, "Fraggle Rock" was an international hit and shown in a dozen countries.
Airing on the CBC from 1967 to 1996 (and much longer in repeats), "Mr. Dressup" became an icon for generations of Canadian children.
If you think duct tape can fix anything ... well, you have "The Red Green Show" to blame for that.

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
