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

Thursday, January 12, 2017

She was born Cheryl Guthrie at NGH in 1957. Fitch was raised in St. Williams. She worked in the former nursing home in St. Williams and was a meat cutter in Port Rowan before training as a designated lay minister in Montreal. “She enjoyed her job very much,” said Andy Fitch, her husband since 1977. “She liked being with the public and she liked meeting people. And she loved her congregations.” The board of directors at Delhi United Church will meet next Monday to discuss the way forward. It promises to be a difficult meeting, for Fitch’s visitation will be held the following day. Fitch’s 14 years at the head of Delhi United is a long pastoral charge by church standards. Mariette Stefek of Delhi, chair of the Delhi board, says it worked out that way because there was a great chemistry between the congregation and its leader. “She never made us feel she was different from the rest of us,” Stefek said. “That made us appreciate her all the more. She enjoyed Delhi and our congregation and was content to hang around. “I’m going to miss her dearly. She was the rock of our church. We have a great bunch at our church. We’re going to pull together and we’re going to do it for her.” The Jeffrey Glendinning Funeral Home in Port Rowan is handling arrangements. Visitations will be held at the home from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10. A funeral service will be held next Wednesday morning at 11 a.m. at Delhi United Church. Burial will follow in Bayview Cemetery in Port Rowan. MSonnenberg@postmedia.com  Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Crash victim mourned - Brantford Expositor

Thursday, September 15, 2016

We created a lot of wonderful memories together." Mr. Starr died Friday after the motorcycle he was driving went off the road in Port Rowan and ended up in a ravine. He was 66. Born in England, Mr. Starr came to Canada as a child. He was long-distance truck driver for more than 30 years and was owner-operator of his own rig. For about the past five years, Mr. Starr delivered The Expositor to homes in Paris and St. George. The Starrs were married for more than 40 years. Linda remembers their first date. "We went horseback riding," she said. "It was a wonderful time. "He loved animals and that's why, in lieu of flowers, we've asked people to donate to the SPCA." Donations to the SPCA or Huntington Society can be made through the Wm. Kipp Funeral Home in Paris at www.wmkippfuneralhome.com or by calling the home at 519-442-3061. Linda has Huntington disease, a brain disorder that causes uncontrolled movements and affects a person's emotions and ability to think. It is a progressive disease. Mr. Starr cared for his wife and was involved in fundraising activities for the Huntington Society, Linda said. "He was a real gentleman in everything he did," she said. Daughter Tiffany Hodges said she will remember her dad's dry humour. "There were so many different aspects to his personality and he was always so good with his grandchildren," Hodges said. "They always wanted to be around their papa." Visitati...

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa Citizen

Wednesday, 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. Clark Davey, former publisher of the Montreal Gazette, displaying a mock-up of the paper's new Sunday edition in 1988. Bill Grimshaw / The Canadian Press 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. (...
