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...

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...

'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...
