Woman killed in hit-and-run crash known to panhandle in traffic - Simcoe Reformer

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

DELHI, ON - The woman who died in a hit-and-run collision in Delhi last week was “a troubled soul” who would regularly stop traffic in town as part of an aggressive panhandling strategy.Sally Ann Dollard, 72, was pronounced dead at the scene Friday morning after she was struck by a vehicle on King Street in the area of the Delhi cenotaph. The collision occurred in the eastbound lane sometime around 6:30 a.m. The vehicle that struck Dollard did not remain.Dollard was well-known in Delhi. She lived alone in an apartment building at the corner of Main Street and William Street. She reportedly had mental health issues and struggled with poverty.“She was a troubled soul, let’s put it that way,” said neighbour Sue Huggins, who got to know Dollard in January. “She’d been here for about 10 years. It wasn’t like no one didn’t know her.“She was a little tortured. Some people wouldn’t use such kind words. I think she’s in a happier place.”In recent years, Dollard gained a reputation for venturing...

Cheryl Fitch declined rapidly following Dec. 12 diagnosis - Simcoe Reformer

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Congregants at Delhi United Church were looking forward to the day this year when their long-serving minister was back in the pulpit sharing words of wisdom and inspiration. They were also looking forward to a Christmas celebration in December where Pastor Cheryl Fitch presided over another community banquet celebrating the Yuletide season. Instead – unexpectedly and suddenly – congregations at Delhi United Church and Lynnville United Church are preparing for Fitch’s visitations and burial. Fitch died Wednesday at Norfolk General Hospital in Simcoe. She was 59. Fitch was diagnosed with esophageal cancer Dec. 12 and was fitted with a feeding tube soon after. She wasn’t well enough to deliver the service in Delhi Christmas Eve but was on hand to provide communion. Fitch by then was in a weakened state and unable to attend the Christmas banquet at Delhi United the next day. As it happened, her absence was a harbinger of things to come. “The whole group of us find it rather sudden,” Les Stedman, secretar...

UPDATE: Crash victim 'loved to help people' - Simcoe Reformer

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

DELHI, ON - Police say charges are pending after a 68-year-old woman died after being struck by a pick up truck while crossing the road in Delhi Thursday night. The woman was hit at about 5:36 p.m. while walking across the intersection of King and Main streets, said Norfolk OPP. Police have not released the identity of the woman, who they say was struck by a pick up truck driven by a 44-year-old from Kingston, Jamaica. The Reformer has learned the woman is Nancy Chartrand. Chartrand's daughter Andrea Almas of Delhi described her mother as a “kind, caring generous individual” who “loved to help people” and “had a strong belief in God.” Chartrand, who before she retired was a foster parent and worked in the kitchen at the Delrose retirement home, was active in Delhi's First Baptist Church. Almas said her mother was out walking her dog at the time she was struck. Streets in the area were cordoned off for about five hours as police examined the scene. Norfolk OPP say the investigation is c...

'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...
