DUFFY, John
In loving memory of our dear father John who passed away March 1st 1997.
Dad, you are with us every single day,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and will never go away,
A father and a best friend, all wrapped up into one,
A proud and loving father to his daughter and his sons,
Now your time here guiding us, sadly it is gone,
But your love, your spirit, your passion for life forever will live on,
So, as another year passes and slowing fades away,
We love you and miss you Dad,
Just like every other day.
All our love and missing you always Erin and Terry.

DUFFY, Mary Christene (née HEENAN)
(December 12, 1930-April 8, 2005)
Died peacefully in the embrace of her family at Tall Pines Long-term Care Centre after a lengthy illness fought with courage. Deeply cherished wife and life partner of Earl DUFFY. Loving and greatly loved mother of Colleen JOHNSTON (Brian), Kevin (Sherry), Paul (Wendy), Karen NEMEZ (Greg), Shawn (Josie) and Neil (Leslie). Devoted grandmother of Melissa, Kylah, Emily, Caitlin, Katherine, Nicole DUFFY, Nicole NEMEZ, Conor, Beth, Madeline, Nelson, Christina, Michael and Carson. Chris was the 9th of 10 children born to Joe and Lily HEENAN of Tottenham, Ontario. She is now re-united in heaven with her parents and her sisters Hilda, Marguerite, Theresa, brother Patrick and two brothers who died in childhood. She will be greatly missed by her sister Cecilia (Jean SOARE) and brothers John and Don (Bernice) and many nieces and nephews. Chris had her early education in Tottenham and Colgan and at the age of 15 proceeded to St. Joseph's Convent School in Toronto. In 1952, Chris obtained her R.N. designation at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. While she was at school in Toronto she met and captured the heart of Earl DUFFY from Nelson, British Columbia. It was the beginning of a great love story. Chris and Earl married in 1954 and spent the next 50 years building a wonderful and rich life together. Chris was a remarkable woman and through the years displayed her immense versatility and talent. She was a skilled antique collector with a keen eye for beauty. She made her mark as an entrepreneur - in 1983 Chris and Earl formed Totson Corporation and developed, patented and marketed a new and better milk container to the Canadian market. Her other passions included music and bridge. However, her greatest passion and joy in life was always her family. She was a partner to Earl in his business career - always there as a sounding board, advisor and confidante. Her devotion and loyalty as a mother and grandmother were unparalleled - her family was always her greatest source of pride. While she lived in the Toronto area for most of her life, she never forgot her small town roots - she was always an authentic and warm person with a genuine interest in other people. She possessed great grace, poise and beauty - grit and determination. She profoundly touched the lives of those who knew her and will be missed more than words can say. She leaves a phenomenal legacy for all of us. Our family takes comfort in having a guardian angel looking out for us. Visitation will be held on Monday, April 11, 2005 from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. at Rod Abrams Funeral Home, #1666 Tottenham Road, Tottenham (905-936-3477) with a Mass of Christian Burial to be held on Tuesday, April 12, 2005 at 11 a.m. at St. James Church in Colgan. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to St. Michael's Hospital Foundation, 30 Bond Street, Toronto, Ontario M5B 1W8, (416) 864-5887. The family wishes to thank the many dedicated healthcare professionals who supported both Chris and Earl in recent years including the staff of St. Michael's Hospital, Bridgepoint Hospital and Tall Pines Long-term Care Centre. Special thanks to Dr. Rachel SHUPAK of St. Mike's who always went the extra mile for Chris.
