Masons display more than 150 years of history - Simcoe Reformer

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Lodge 113 on Saturday. The open house gave people an opportunity to learn more about the masons, their connection to Waterford and Norfolk.Originally from Perthshire, Scotland, Wilson came to Canada in 1832 and settled in Simcoe. He was the originator of the masons in Ontario. While masonic lodges existed back in the 1800s, they were ruled by the Grand Lodge in England. It was Wilson who thought lodges in Canada should rule themselves.By 1855, Ontario’s masons had their first governing body and Wilson was the first grand master.Wilson took on a lot of roles in the community including lawyer and reeve and also published a newspaper, Anderson said.When Wilson died in 1875, more than 1,000 masons from across the province came to Simcoe for the funeral.“He was an exceptional person from Simcoe who was a mover and shaker and a great Mason,” a note on the chair said.Wilson Lodge 113 celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2009 and has been meeting at its home on Alice Street, Waterford since 1890. The lodge is one of the oldest in Ontario and continues to contribute to the community.“The lodge does a lot in the community but it’s all done quietly,” Anderson said.The open house attracted a few curious visitors including Bev Hicks and Helen Smith. They were there to see if Anderson could shed light on an old black and white men’s fraternity photo.Anderson couldn’t help them – it was a photograph of men who belonged to an Odd Fellows Lodge — but the three still enjoyed a lengthy conversation about local history.Wayne Turvey, of Villa Nova, also visited Lodge 113 during the open house.He was particularly interested in the photographs of the lodge members dating back to the 1800s.“It’s really interesting,” Turvey said. “Th...

Recognizing the three Joneses - Moose Jaw Times-Herald

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

We’re very grateful to them. Without them paving the way, we wouldn’t be where we’re at today.”The home first began on March 9, 1940. W.J. Jones came west from Perth, Ont. in 1905 with his family to Valour, a village west of Assiniboia. As a carpenter, he travelled to Moose Jaw for supplies and soon moved there. Irwin knew a few people working at a funeral home, which sparked an interest. When he approached W.J. with the idea, they decided to try their hands with funeral work.In 1939, the pair acquired the building where the funeral home still stands, built in 1906.Don grew up in the funeral home, as his parents lived in the suite above.“I know every nook and cranny and pipe and electrical switch. So I just observed what was going on,” said Don. “I remember when I was a little boy … I was helping my dad and my granddad have funeral services in this area at that time. My job was to let people in the front door, the big old oak door, and so people knew the Jones’ at that point and they knew me.”While attending Victoria Public School and then Central Collegiate, he helped out in various roles at the business.“It wasn’t long into my high school years that I decided, ‘This is what I’d like to do,’” he said. “So after high school, I began apprenticing under my dad.”He received his funeral director and operator license in 1966. While working, he abides by the philosophy of his grandfather – “Serve or do for others as you would like to see done for you if you were in the same, difficult position,” he said.“Coping with a death is a difficult thing. First of all, family doesn’t want to deal with it and they don’t know how to deal with it. They don’t know what is involved,” said Don, “but once they come in and work with our staff directors, they soon learn there’s more to it than buying a casket and going to a cemetery.”For Don, Friday’s dedication ceremony went beyond the renaming of the rooms and the chapel. It has remained a family affair throughout itsbentire operation.“My dad and my granddad both arranged many, many funerals serving many, many hundreds of families of the Moose Jaw and surrounding districts,” he said, pointing to areas such as Dilke, Chamberlain, Central Butte, Tugaske, Chaplin, Mossbank and Cardross.“It’s been an honour to serve all of the famil...

Frank Theodore Bodnar, Jr. Obituary -

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Himalayan Range into China to ward off the Japanese invaders. He was one of the less than 100 men to return to base. Frank spent his R & R in Perth, Australia, which he described as the most beautiful city he ever saw. After the war, he married Helen Rocsiewitz and got hired at Packard Electric Plant 6 in Warren. Unfortunately, after a few years he and four others were fired for protesting poor working conditions. He then worked odd jobs to support his family. Working for East Ohio Lumber Company, Judge Lynn B. Griffith, Austin Village Plaza and Armstrong’s Farm in Champion. He finally was hired by Ajax Magnathermic, where he worked for 20 plus years. He was a great storyteller and put his three children to bed by telling them cowboy stories. For Sunday dinners, Frank raised and butchered chickens in his backyard to make the best tasting roasted chicken one ever ate. He loved the outdoors, hunting and trapping in the winter. One very cold winter he took his children ice skating on Mosquito Creek all the way from Youngstown Road to East Market Street, which is a distance of three plus miles through the woods. Frank was able to speak several languages, Polish, Russian, Austrian to name a few. He loved polka music, bands and singing. Frank is survived by a daughter, Linda Casey of Chicago; two sons, Richard A. of Chicago and Ken F. of Austintown, with whom he previously lived. He also leaves five grandchildren, Colleen, Ken and Charlie Bodnar, Marleen Srok and Raechel Vega; four great-grandchildren, Emily, Melanie Srok, Nathaniel Bodnar and Scarlett Vega and one sister, Pauline Kana of Austintown. Besides his parents, Frank was preceded in death by one brother, John and three sisters, Josephine, Ann and Mary.Friends may call from 10:...

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 ( 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...

'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...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. — 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...
